VOLUME 2 VANCOUVER. B.C. Vancouver College was founded in 1922 by the Chris- tian Brothers of Ireland. On September 5 of that year, ninety- one boys presented themselves for instruction at 650 Richards Street, now Rosary Hall. All grades from four to nine were taught by the four Brothers who had come from distant parts to found the new school. Rev. Br. M. J. Lannon, M.A., Prin- cipal, had come from All Hallows High School, New York City; Rev. Br. P. V. Reid, M.A., formerly of Gibraltar, had come from Ireland with Rev. Br. M. C. Murtagh, B.Sc., and Rev. Br. J. P Keane, M.A., formerly of St. John ' s, Newfound- land, had come from New York City. After three years of pioneer work in the old school the new building at 39th and Cartier was ready for occupation and both staff and students moved there in the fall of 1925. In order to extend the privilege of a Christian education to other 2 boys less favored in the interior of the province, accommoda- tion was provided for a limited number of boarding students. Two years later, more accommodation was provided by the generosity of Mr. J. D. McCormack, K.S.G., who added the new wing, McCormack Hall. During the past year the top floor of the main building was remodelled to provide space for handball, midget basket- ball, cadet rifle range, aero-club, senior boarders ' club, and dark room for photograp hy. Since the foundation a period of twenty years has passed and in that time the registration has been trebled with a simi- lar increase in the number of teachers and the size of the buildings. But the financial burden has not been made lighter. 3 LIBRARY LOCATION. Vancouver College is located at 39th Avenue and Cartier, two blocks east of Granville. It is ideally situated in Shaughnessy Heights, a district noted for the freshness of the air and freedom from winter fogs. JUNIOR DORMITORY AIM. The Christian Broth- ers aim at imparting a thoroughly sound relig- ious and moral training. At the same time they equip their students in- tellectually and physi- cally to take their posi- tions in life, according to their chosen careers. BOARDERS ' CLUB 4 DIRECTION. The College is under the d i rection of the Christian Brothers of Ireland, a religious Con- gregation, which since its foundation in 1802 has been devoted to the Christian education of youth in various parts of the world. CHAPEL CLASS ROOM RELIGION. Each day carries one period of thirty minutes during which secular study ceases in every class to give place to Christian Doctrine. The course in Relig- ion strives to instruct the boy in the knowl- edge of Christian Doc- trine, making him thor- oughly conversant with the foundations of his Faith and of theChurch. 5 ADMISSION. Resident as well as Day Students are ad- mitted. Arrangements for resident students should be made during the summer and for day students in the last week of the month of August. New students will be admitted at other times during the year, at the discretion of the Registrar. Report cards from the last school attended must be presented. COURSES.

Archbishop of Vancouver who takes a keen interest in Vancouver College. 8 Joseph Morgan won this year a National Research Scholarship at the University of Toronto. He will proceed there this fall to work in the Biochemistry Department. For the past year he has held a National Research Scholarship at the U.B.C. and graduated at the head of the class in Agriculture a year ago. For the five years preceding his going to U.B.C., 1931 to 1936, he attended Vancouver College and won the Le- fevre Scholarship in 1935, which en- abled him to complete his senior matric at V.C. ★ Grads of 1940 Phil Brancucci: University in N.

" Charles was active in all phases of campus, club, athletic and social life and gradu- ated with honors in the faculty of applied science, where he studied mechanical engineering. He was a member of the students ' council and had a long record of executive ex- perience. He is now at Gordon Head O.T.C. camp.

Quiet and good-humored, the pride of Prince Rupert, Alan is finishing his fourth year as a boarder at V.C. with a melange of senior and junior matric subjects that will be of benefit for his pre-med course. He has had his turn as cadet officer, was on this year ' s senior basketball team and swings a smart racquet in both tennis and badminton. John Burns . . . Genial John is St. Augustine ' s gift to V.C. He combines pleasure with business — in the forenoon, doing some hours of study, in the after- noon some hours of work at the family store, Burns ' Leather Goods. Always a steady student, last year he surprised us by pinch-hitting with honors at the last moment as Peter Steele in the record-breaking drama, " Dust of the Road. " Jim Edgett . . . To look at Jim you would think he grew up at V.C. — he knows his way round so well and fits in as an old-timer. Last fall he arrived here fresh from P.W. and the football team, but a sprained back early in the season hurt his chances of making the senior squad. However, he did some yeoman work for the intermediates. Jim is another of those who combine senior with junior and hope for the best — and U.B.C. in the fall. Robert Hanna . . . Bob has been at V.C. longer than any of the rest of us can remember. He is an authority on V.C., neutrality or what have you. He has probably covered more ground in his time in com- ing to and going from class than anyone else except his forensic rival, M. S. He covers ground also in his studies, for he has always been among the first in his class. Sebastian Klett ... A student turned athlete, or athlete turned student, according to the proximity of the sport or the study. That is the dilemma. Be that as it may, Sebby has taken his sport seriously and in his time has become pro . . . proficient in several branches of sport. Another of those who combine senior and junior matric and hope — for aeronautical engineering some day. 12 Jack and Leo Leavy . . . " The Twins, " who have been a familiar sight around V.C. for the past five years! Standing 6 feet 8 high and tipping the scales at 265 lbs., Leo with his brother, Jack, would be the world ' s comedy team on the stage arguing an abstruse Latin construction, prompting ineffectually his un- heeding brother or wrestling with himself or his double, except that no stage could stand the power of over 500 lbs. when it hits all in the one spot. The most persistent and painstaking students are both of them. On being asked their hobby, they replied in unre- hearsed unison, " Studying. " However, it is our private opinion that it is collecting jokes for Fred Allen ' s pro- gramme or from it. Their future — hush! it ' s a mili- tary secret. Allan MacDonald . - . A I is just nine months out of Cranbrook, his first year at V.C. His favorite sport is singing the praises of his home town besides skiing and shooting when the opportunity is offered. Burning the midnight oil at his books, he had not time to tur n out for either football or basketball, although if he did get going at either he would go places. William Murphy . . . Active both on and off the gridiron, Bill is bound to go far in the business world. As evidence — the ad and ticket campaign in which he ranked first — head salesman for football tickets alone with the phenomenal total of $70.00. And as for his power in hitting the line in football, when he hits them they remain hit. He was advocate of the " Back to Coca Cola " movement till the ceiling came down. William O ' Neil . . . Quiet, unassuming and good- natured is genial Bill, who has been with us now for the past three years. As class president, as cadet cap- tain, as Captain Stanhope in " Sylvia ' s Son " or as a student he is always in there pitching He hopes to be a civil engineer. 13 S nioz atziautation , 1Q 2 Jack Patterson . . . 200 lbs. of raw meat on the hoof with every pound counting, a triple threat man in any football team if the charms of Dawson City had not delayed him three years too long up north; He has carved up the senior matric course to digest it piecemeal. The Alaska Highway will run through his back yard and that practically identifies Jack with it from now on. Robert Scarabelli . . . Easy-going, except on ice or when a football or basketball is sailing through the air, Bob runs a Hotel Vancouver elevator for home work and hopes to be some day hotel-manager. He came here from Ottawa three years ago and still longs for ice-skating in the great outdoors. Martin Sherry . . . Martin, a boarder for the past two years, comes from Hong Kong by way of bonny Scotland. In the latter place he went to school for several years till the war broke out. His parents are in Japanese-held territory. At the drop of a book he will plunge into an endless argument. Next year he hopes to join the other engineers at U.B.C. or perhaps he may get impatient with the progress of the war and join the R.C.A.F. Peter Short . . . Peter came here from Magee last fall to do senior. Since he leaves class early, spends the weekend on the mountain, we don ' t see enough of him to write home about. A member of the Tyee Ski Runners, he can tell you all about the art of sliding around the country on a pair of greased planks. He is bound for forestry engineering. Pat Tiernan . . . Another from Magee for a year, he leans towards the sciences and hopes to enroll with the varsity engineers in the fall. His hearty laugh can be heard above the rest of the class — that is, when the class is resting. Boxing fascinates him — when the other fellow does it! Charles Watkiss . . . Sylvan Lake, Alberta, is calling. Being a boarder, he has time for practising his favorite instrument, the cornet; playing billiards; blowing smoke screens; and studying his books which are not always his favorite authors. He is bound for the University of Alberta. 14 uniox l lafaicufation, 1(p 2 M. Belknap H. Bootle J. Bruce C. Bullen M. Clarke C. Coady J. Coady B. Carrigan L. Cunningham S. Du Mont — H. Gahan W.

However, Brother Walsh was on the lookout for just such a con- tingency. All available space was taken up, but no more. When the final count was made, we found that 75 boarders had been accommodat- ed. Fifty-three of these were for the senior division. The " oldtimers " quickly adapted themselves to any new conditions. New boarders found things strange for a few weeks but soon learned the ropes, AND I DO MEAN ROPES! Those weeks will probably be re- membered for a long time by the newcomer. Among strange com- panions and with schoolmasters very unlike any he ever came into con- tact with before, he tried hard to make himself at home. This was eased by those who had previous ex- perience and especially by the Bro- thers in charge, who did all in their power to make these strangers feel " at home. " Cranbrook did a boom trade for the railroad company. " Practially all " of its young citizens made the trip to Vancouver. It appears that some missed the train, tor I under- stand that still others will be com- ing next year. Of course, now an uncharitable boarder from Kelowna might remark that it ' s a wonder any- one stays in Cranbrook. On the other hand, what ' s Vancouver got that Kelowna hasn ' t? We oldtimers were glad to find Brother Ryan as the new Prefect of Boarders. In our language the Pre- fect is perfect. He gave us only three or four rules to follow but they certainly embraced every situation we could possibly be in. After a few weeks in which all of us became acquainted with each other and with the school rules, we held an election of members to the Boarders ' Council. The Council was established in October to foster a better understanding between the Faculty and the boarders. It helps 20 to maintain discipline, by imposing suitable penances on transgressors. It organizes entertainments and games to keep up the morale of the boarders. These are but a few of the many ways in which the Board- ers ' Council has aided both the Fac- ulty and the resident students. We are indeed fortunate in our choice of president. Alan Burbank is a credit to the position he now holds and so far as we can judge without actually giving anyone else the position, he is the best possible one for the many duties which the office imposes on its holder. He is straightforward, serious and imbued with the spirit of the College. With the many fine qualities he possesses Alan should go far in whatever pro- fession he chooses to follow. For vice-president we elected Andy Thoresen, who in a way is a rarity, since he is a Norwegian with a sense of humour. No doubt he developed his humour in one of our English boarding-schools. Yes, Andy was in England; or did you know? He reminds us once in a while that the Brothers in England are harder on the boarders than our Brothers are. Andy is going to be an aviator. He took a power dive in the first football game at Blaine and he likes it. We often wonder which he liked most; the dive, Blaine, or the hospi- tal, since he doesn ' t take the dive any more, nor does he go to Blaine. But during every blackout where do we find Andy? Keerect. Alan ' s kid brother, Hughie, is our secretary - treasurer, an important position and one to which some of our ex-boarders would like to have been elected. He has the duty of collecting for an activity in which the boarder takes part and for which he has to pay. On Hughie depends our monthly party. He is working at one of our shipyards now doing his share to help defeat the enemy. Good luck, Hughie. We ' ll always remember you. Some day we may be fighting the enemy in o ne of the boats you helped build. We ' ll give him an extra slug for you. We think it fitting to give hon- orable mention to Mervyn Belknap, Don Matheson, Hughie Burbank and the others who helped to put our little entertainments across. JUNIOR BOARDERS (MRS. E. HORNE, MATRON) 21 Rev. Br. M. J. Lannon, Mr. R. Underhill, Rev. B. J. Quinn, O.M.I. Joundz t ih The third annual Founders ' Day ceremonies saw approximately four hundred students, graduates and friends of Vancouver College gath- ered together in the Auditorium to pay tribute to the memory of those who contributed so much towards the establishment of the College. Rev. Brother M. J. Lannon, first principal of the College and now principal of O ' Dea High School in Seattle, told of the founding of the College on Richards Street in 1922. " If we had listened to the advice of others, this college would not have been built, " he said. " Where these buildings now stand was desolation; we did not have the necessary means to expand, but because of the spirit and faith of the people, we were able to do the most daring things. " The good Brother who had spent 1 1 suc- cessive years in the College, recog- nized many familiar faces amongst those present and expressed his pleasure upon having the oppor- tunity once again to greet his old friends to whom he and all the Brothers owed such a deep debt of gratitude for their loyal spirit of co- operation down through the years. Mr. Russell Underhill, president of the Fathers ' Club, was the chair- man. The dinner programme in- cluded addresses by Rev. Brother E. B. Walsh, present principal of the school; Mr. J. Gilmore of the class of ' 36, now with the C.B.C. Rev. Brother Walsh in his prin- cipal ' s report, made special mention of the fact that many of the past pupils of the past ten years are now serving their country in the armed forces. " We can well be proud of such men as Barry Morgan Dean, who was the first Vancouver casu- alty in the present conflict; Philip Conlin, awarded the M.B.E. for meri- torious service. Special tribute was also paid to ex-pupils, Wm. Lynott and Harold Weeks, who distinguish- ed themselves in the scholastic field by winning scholarships to Princeton and Harvard, respectively. Seated at the head table were the graduates of 1941. During the din- ner courses there was community singing led by the inimitable master of ceremonies, Cummy Reid. Conveners for the banquet were Mrs. G. McKillop, Mrs. M. E. Fair- leigh, Mrs. R. Egan, Mrs. E. J. Gray, Mrs. A. Leavy, Mrs. L. Turner, Mrs. W. J. Murphy and Mrs. J. Nieuw- dorp. 22 Mrs. E. M. Herb Mrs. E. J. Gray Past President President President Mrs. E. J. Gray Vice-President Mrs. J. B. Crane Secretary Mrs. R. Egan Treasurer Mrs. O. J. Walmesley Under the competent supervision of the sewing convenor, Mrs. J. A. Legree, with the assistance of her committee — Mesdames Brewer, Walmesley, Brabant, Galer, A. Egan and J. Norton — an exceptionally busy year was had, meeting every Wednesday afternoon making mat- tress covers for the complete dormi- tories as well as making and hanging new sectional curtains in the senior dormitory, also considerable renova- tion and repairing to household linens, etc. The annual Reunion Banquet was held on October 25, 1941, with an attendance of some four hundred guests and pupils. This affair was ably convened by Mrs. C. J McKli- lop and Mrs. R. Egan. On November 29, 1941, a ban- quet was given the football team and friends, numbering in all two hun- dred and fifty, under the efficient direction of Mrs. E. J. Gray, assisted by Mesdames R. Egan, Legree, Walmesley, Calkins, Herb, Philley, Malone, O ' Brien and L. F. McKin- non. The annual membership tea, un- der the able convenorship of Mrs. Harry Sayer, was held on January 21, 1942, when some seventy mem- bers registered. A very beautiful teakwood chest was donated by Capt. and Mrs. Stur- rock during the year for the purpose of a raffle of which Mrs. J. F. Farry has undertaken the convenorship, assisted by Mrs. E. M. Herb, Mrs. J. D. Fletcher and Mrs. M. McGinley. At the moment things look very bright for those concerned, the chest having been substantially filled with household lines which were re- ceived at a most enjoyable tea held at the home of the president, RE-UN ION BANQUET, 1941 23 xarna s. ECLLOn At the second annual Greater Vancouver High School Drama Fes- tival held at Kitsilano High School, second place went to the Vancouver College Drama Club for their splen- did comedy production, " The First Dress Suit. " Just one week previous to this the College entry was award- ed the Comedy Trophy in the Junior section of the United Church Young People ' s Drama Festival. This pro- duction was directed by Rev. Brother D. L. Phillips. Below is an excerpt taken from the Vancouver " Sun " : " Outstanding performers were two Vancouver College lads who im- personated feminine characters in " The First Dress Suit. " Paul Foran and Gerard Farry provided a con- vincing portrayal of mother and daughter respectively. Harold Chis- holm in the natural role of an ado- lescent, was largely responsible for the fast tempo of the play, and Bill O ' Malley as Johnny Drake, showed a good understanding of his role.

Mr. Allard de Ridder, our popular and distinguish- ed conductor of last year, having joined the noted Hart House Quar- tet, gave opening to a new conduc- tor. Mr. Tediese Kadzielawa, an experienced celloist of the Vancou- ver Symphony, took over the vacan- cy left by Mr. de Ridder. Mr. Kad- zielawa ' s patience and methods led the orchestra to its present popular- ity. Mr. Kadzielawa ' s recent call to active service necessitated getting a new conductor. Mr. E. Austin, a well known and experienced musi- cian and teacher, has very capably filled this vacancy. 26 c j-tfi[s,tia± Suited driaxactzz 27 O ' DEA VS. V. C. AT ATHLETIC PARK INTRODUCING . . . Mr. Greg Kabat: American foot- ball coach and teacher of Social Studies in Grades Ten and Eleven. " All - American " from University of Wisconsin, he held the world ' s record for the discus and has won cham- pionships in high jump, decathlon, swimming and golf. The Coach Although our football team was not caught in the draft our coach, Joe Budnick, was. The result — no " disgustful " episodes at half-time and a Sergeant York — perhaps — for the anti-aircraft division some- where on the Pacific Coast. The vacancy was ably filled by that " All- American " from Wisconsin, Greg Kabat. In Winnipeg at St. Paul ' s College, his teams won so many championships that the other school coaches breathed a sigh of relief when Greg moved to Vancouver. In short, hard practices, he lost no time in rounding into shape whatever material was available in the school. His aim was victory and he lost no time in impressing this on the squad for he worked them like a slave- driver. They were up against tough teams in a tough game and they had to be tough to take it. The result of the training was that there were very few accidents and the boys played their best. The following excerpt from Stu Keate ' s " Sport Shots " in the " Daily Province, " tells its own story: " You have only to attend one of their workouts to know why their team is a success. They work like tigers. Greg Kabat is constantly aboard them, lashing them with his sharp tongue, exhorting them to greater efforts. . . . We were impressed by the zeal with which they were pre- paring for the Annual O ' Dea classic. This is their battle for the Holy Grail, make no mistake about it. . . . The Team In two short seasons our Canadian football material has been drilled in- 28 SENIOR FOOTBALL TEAM Front row: D. Bayley, B. Lavery, J. Callaghan, D. Underhill, T. McLorg, H. Sanders, J.

O ' Dea is still a hard team to beat but if the boys keep rolling along with the speed they picked up this season they may upset even O ' Dea. The " Beat O ' Dea " slogan which was started last season as a kind of en- couraging propaganda may not be so fantastic after all. The team of 1941 added a re- markable page to the history of sport at V.C. It lost one game and that to the great traditional rivals, O ' Dea. Moreover, the latter had one of the best teams in history, final- ists with Gonzaga Prep for the Catholic Schools State Champion- ship. The Annual Classic " The soccer match at the East End park was entertaining but for sheer drama and excitement, the last quarter at Athletic Park was tops. Those kids in the purple and geld of Vancouver College staged one of the gamest rallies it ' s ever been our pleasure to watch. " This was the picture: going into that final twelve minutes they were hopelessly beaten and dejected, down 34-6. Then somebody in the cheer section started a yell, some- thing like ' Don ' t say no, don ' t say Opponent THE SEASON ' S RECORD V C BLAINE 0 6 BELLINGHAM - - 6 20 MT.

They uncorked one of the prettiest scoring plays of the year when " Spud " Murphy tossed a lateral pass to Martin; he heaved it forward to Sanders and that nimble young gent scampered across the O ' Dea line standing up. That one play alone was worth $5 a seat. " When the final whistle blew, College had scored 20 points with- out a reply, sneaking within a touch- down of their heavier, more exper- ienced opponents. They lost the game but in so doing won the ad- miration of every fan in the stands, because they showed they didn ' t know when to quit. That ' s the test of athletic greatness. " How that rally started, by Pat Slattery. " A black - haired lad named " Bags " Bailey was the hero. It was this thick-set youngster who started all the fireworks in that dramatic fourth period when he intercepted Matt Mattino ' s pass and ran 45 yards for a touchdown. . . The score standing at 34-12 and full time quite away off, the College kept on slugging, bringing the fans to their feet and howling when Murphy lat- eralled to Martin, who tossed a long spiral to Bayley. The latter cut in and wound up between the posts. This time Underhill made his point and it was 34-19 and still time to win. " The din was terrific. The ' Irish ' were on the march and nothing short of the fulltime whistle would stop them. Only a few brief sec- onds went by before they again crashed paydirt. . . . " Highlight’s in the Football Do You Remember??? The famous touchdown trio of Murphy to Robbins to Martin. . . . Bayley running 65 yards through the opposition to score in the Ever- ett game. . . . Ryan taking the touchdown pass to tie the mighty Ferndale team. . . . The " Seven Blocks of Granite " : Ryan, Capozzi, Patterson, Clark, Campbell, Clayton and Sanders. . . . The famous play No. 51. . . . Scarabelli intercepting the pass in the Lakeside game and going for a touchdown. . . . Strang running wild in his first complete game. . . . Those hard practice sessions. . . . The thrill of the first score against O ' DEA. . . . The thrill of seeing your name in the paper. . . . Those half time talks. . . . When the head manager decided to try his luck in place-kicking. . . . When Bill Clayton intercepted the pass in the O ' Dea game and al- most scored. . . . When Bayley chased Meyers of O ' Dea for 80 yards and caught him. . . . When Captain Murphy made the stands shiver with his line bucks . . .

How sad we felt when the season was all over. 30 INTRAMURAL SPORT. During the past ten months the college campus has been as busy a centre as the beehives situated on its eastern flank. Since last Septem- ber scores of stalwart sport enthusi- asts have romped from end to end of it getting healthful exercise and lots of ozone. ★ FOOTBALL Intermediate Football League: When the candidates for the senior football team were determined an intermediate league of six teams was organized by Br. Pilon. After many exciting games Chris Johnson ' s team was presented with the purple and gold emblems of victory. From the best material of this league a team was chosen to play in a city series. Our rep team won the series. ★ Midget All-Star League: For the delectation of the fans in Athletic Park a midget all-star league was formed by Br. Maloney. The only conditions for joining this league were a weight limit of about 1 00 lbs. and an age limit of about nine years. The midgets took their football so seriously that it was with difficulty that the official refreee of the big game got them to cease hostilities when their time was up. That, ac- cording to them, was only a meagre twenty minutes. Some of the fans wanted the midgets instead of the senior team. ★ Junior Football League: The boys of the junior division also got an op- portunity to develop a little skill at the American code. In the Junior League, organized by Br. Treacy, the team captained by Bobbie Brewer of the Grade Eight class won first place honors. ★ Soccer Football: While Coach Kabat was setting a dizzy pace for the senior gridders a group of jun- iors could be seen on the upper campus cutting merry capers with a soccer ball. These juniors, organ- ized by Br. Cerasoli, consisted of five teams. The league was won by Ffarry Dodd ' s " Terriers. " 31 Left to right: D. Underhill, B. Higbie, H. Sanders, R. Ruocco, H. Gahan, A. Burbank, B. Robbins, J. Mills, S. Klett, E. Ryan, H. Capozzi, B. Scarabelli. SENIOR BASKETBALL The senior team played a series of games with teams from the state of Washington. Some of these games were played in the home court, the V.A.C. Gym; the others in Seattle, Bellingham and Lynden. In all cases our team met heavier and much more experienced teams and were on the short end of the score. ★ BASKETBALL Junior Basketball League: Under the supervision of Br Maloney, four teams were chosen to form a junior league with four members of the senior hoop squad to do the coach- ing chores. After many close games the team captained by Ronnie Gray and coached by Dave Underhill came out on top. The other coaches were Herb Capozzi, Ed Ryan and Bud Higbie. for basketball. Under the guidance of Br. Cerasoli, two divisions of the midget league, one for boarders and one for day boys, were formed. The " Cougars, " led by Dave Calkins, earned the right to play off with the boarders ' team led by Jack Christian. The series ended with victory for the " Cougars. " Midget Basketball League: The tiny tots of the lower grades were also given a chance to develop a yen 32 Front row: W. Clarke, B. Mulhern, B. Brewer, S. Fraser R. Gray. Second row: A. Scaia, B.

Treacyand Maloney. This team, with six wins and two losses, is second in the Sunday School Base- ball League. Much to the delight of the team and the coaches and all others concerned, baseball uniforms appeared at the second game and have been the pride of the team ever since. They are the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Mulhern of Hotel Patricia. Softball: The senior softball league of four teams has had a suc- cessful season under the guidance of Greg Kabat. At the moment the team representing the faculty is leading. The senior and junior boarders have been busy every night with their leagues. ★ Sunday School League V.C.

This year, the Cadet Corps has made a great advance. Its scope in activities has greatly increased with its first aid squad, A.R.P. group, sig- nalling corps and N.C.O. class. Dur- ing the year, lectures were given in aircraft recognition, knots and lash- ings, map reading, field and wood- craft. In the early part of the year, the prospective officers were taken by Sergeant Major Evers for special in- struction. Due to his painstaking care a small group of competent of- ficers was developed, who handled practically alone the training of the raw recruits as well as of the veter- ans from Christmas till the annual inspection. On May 18, Major W. R. Critch- ley and Sergeant Major O ' Reilly in- spected the corps. They were very pleased with the efficiency displayed and the good spirit of co-operation among the officers and men. Last year, one month after the cadet in- spection, the Lieutenant-Governor, the Hon. E. W. Hamber, reviewed the cadets on the campus. He, too, congratulated the corps on its smart appearance and its efficiency. Foundation of Corps On April 6, 1940, the corps was organized at the request of the Min- ister of National Defense. It was the second corps in the city to an- swer his appeal. Thus, V.C. got in step with the Government ' s wartime preparedness drive. Under Major Norman Burley of the Seaforths, a graduate of R.M.C., the cadets were given instruction in ceremonial drill, signalling, first aid, fieldcraft and the use of the rifle. This year, ow- ing to lack of time, Major Burley could not be with the corps so often but he managed to come occasion- ally for map reading and ceremonial drill. The corps, originally numbering 60 cadets, now has an enlistment of Cadets J. Patterson, M. Belknap, E. Breier, D. DeMuth, J. Scott, B. Clayton. 36 " EYES RIGHT " Cadet Capt.

Some time ago I heard over the C.B.C. network a broadcast from your college in which was mentioned the name of Flying Officer Barry Morgan-Dean. This officer was a member of my squadron in France and was lost in the initial attacks of the advancing German tank columns into Luxem- bourg in Eastern France. To the best of my knowledge, it was the first day of the French campaign about 9 o ' clock in the morning of May 10, 1940. He had been a member of my squadron for some considerable time and his loss was felt by the many friends he had made. During the period of " inactivity " he had, in fact, taken part in several pamphlet raids over the Rhine and was a very competent pilot. The attack in which he lost his life was made against a moving target which had been heavily protected by small arms anti-aircraft fire. . . . Wing Commander T. C. Dickens.
