Bates, a native of Halifax, N.S., arrived from the U.S. to take over as principal of V.C. in Sept. ’54. He was Director of Personnel Ser- vices and Instructor in Psychology at Iona College, New Rochelle, N.Y. prior to coming here. He was educated in St. John’s Nfld., and Halifax be- fore attending Fordham University in New York where he received the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. He obtained his degree of Master of Arts in Guidance and Person- nel, and took post-graduate work for his doctorate at St. John’s University and New York University. His teaching career started in 1938 when he was first assigned to Sacred Heart School in Manhattan. Suc- cessive assignments took him to St. John’s, Nfld., for eight years, New York for four years, and finally to Iona College until his appointment brought him to Vancouver College. His Excellency, Most Reverend WILLIAM MARK DUKE Archbishop of Vancouver Archbishop Duke was consecrated Bishop of Fasis and co-adjutor to the late Archbishop Timothy Casey of Vancouver in his native St. John on October 18, 1928. The new bisho t p said his first Mass in St. Patrick’s church at Twelth and Main on November 23, 1928. He dedicated himself to assisting his superior who was in failing health. When Archbishop Casey died in 1931, Archbishop Duke was confronted with the responsibility of planning for the religious care of a diocese that was to have the greatest growth of any group of parishes in Canada during the next two decades. On October 4, 1953 Archbishop Duke celebrated his Silver Jubilee, a quarter century of service to the archdiocese of Vancouver, Divinely entrusted to his care. HIERARCHY His Excellency, Most Reverend MARTIN JOHNSON Co-Adjutor Archbishop of Vancouver Vancouver’s newly appointed Co Adjutor, the Most Rev. Martin John- son, D.D., was formerly Bishop of Nelson, B.C. Born in St. Francis Parish, Tor- onto, he graduated from St. Michael’s College High School and was or- uained to the priesthood June 24, 1924 after attending St. Augustine’s Seminary. In Toronto he served at St. Helen’s Parish and Weston before being bursar of St. Augustine’s Sem- inary. At the time of his appointment as First Bishop of Nelson, July 18, 1936, he was Chancellor in Spirituali- bus of the Toronto Archdiocese. Archbishop-elect Johnson was con- secrated in St. Michael’s Cathedral by His Eminence James Charles Car- dinal McGuigan on Sept. 29, 1936 and arrived in Nelson Oct. 22 of the same year. He came to Vancouver to be formally installed in March, 1955. CHAPLAINS ! Very Reverend Msgr. M. T. NICHOL, V.G. Pastor, Sts. Peter and Paul REV. FATHER J. REITER Assistant Vancouver College has no chaplains it can really call its own, but two priests of Sts. Peter and Paul Parish, Monsignor Nichol, the pastor, and Father Reiter, his assistant, have ably filled this position. Monsignor, a native of Saint John, New Brunswick, attended St. Joseph’s University there and was ordained at Saint John in 1925. In 1937, five years before coming here, he was named Papal Chamberlain, and in 1948, Domestic Prelate. Later in the same year he was selected as Vicar General of the Arch- diocese of Vancouver. Father Reiter, who hails from Tramping Lake, Sask., attended Laval University, Quebec, and was ordained here in Vancouver. Father came to Sts. Peter and Paul in 1952 to succeed Father Keilty. Both take a great interest in the school. Every Thursday preceding a first Friday finds them hearing con- fessions of the entire student body. They are always active for our spirit- ual welfare and in this we are ex- tremely grateful. 8 FACULTY BRO. E. B. WALSH Religion; Math; French; English; Art; Vice Principal and Treasurer.

THE SENIOR like most College students must keep a rigid time schedule. Here he is seen boarding the bus. Being alone we conclude he is late. THE LAST QUAR- TER MILE Emerging from the bus the senior walks swiftly across 41st. He has no worries about connec- tions now, and only has to worry about his regular English quiz. THE SENIOR Re-enacts His Usual Day For You. It is only fitting that the reader should know the reasons behind the selection of the Senior. The Senior’s name is Henri Lapointe. He is a member of Grade 12-A, is one of the most active and intelligent students in Col- lege. He was chosen at the same time the elections were held for the Student Senate. The names of the senior class students were placed on a board and both classes voted for whomever they wished. The winner was used as the subject of our story, and the representative of the fourth-year pupil. We tried our best. Therefore, we hope that the average senior’s day will be conveyed to all with realism. It is not only his story, it is every senior’s story. i CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE 13 THE SENIOR CONTINUED ROBERT B.

Ray Torresan led all competition in the " Collegian’s ad campaign. All other activities from the Glee Club to the Drama group received enthusiastic support. The athletes from our Juniors gave their untiring eforts to put the College teams in the winning circle. The Varsity football squad was represented by such stalwarts as Joe Clark, Mike MacDonald, Bob Mullin and Vince Ivancic. J.V. basketball was headed by Carl Muldowan and Bob Macdonald.

Within the year they will head the reins of the VeeCee student body. As the senior class these prospective citizens will bear the responsibility of setting the example for the College’s underclassmen. Our juniors have come a long way ■ since entering room 205 in September. Academically, II-B carries one of the most difficult curriculams in the high school. Math and chemistry provide ample challenge to the honour students. The top scholars hailed from II-B. Mike Wyatt and Terry Blair led the school with their outstanding marks in the classical subjects. Dan Bileski, Niall Martin, Norm Oddy and Franco Oduber represented II-B as regards to the Student Senate. Their contributions were immeasurable.

The sophomore class of 10-A is justly proud, of the many members it has contributed to the various activities. Harry Worthington, Bruce Simpson, Ray Contoli, Leo Pourier, Tony Al- berts, Mike Dagenas, George Terhune, John Chubaty gave their talents to the Glee Club while the Drama Group was ably assisted by Leo Savoie, Leo Petty, Gerry Hepworth, Tom Sebal, Bob McGinnis. The Band was made more harmonious by Brian McGill, Paul Boucher, Armand Giroday, Art Scorse, and John Pollock. Harvey Eddy and Don Flahiff, also cheerleaders, Mike Fox, Tom Muse, Frank Doyle, Gordon Lawe, Harry Sanford, Pete Durkin, Throne Colgur and Don McConachie represented the class in the Glee Club.

In J.V. basketball John Oster, Ray Brunelle, Fred Carney, Rick Abbott and Dick Bordewick repre- sented the class. Jim Condy and Fred Findlay gave the school a lift in boxing as well as in the art activity. At the same time virtually everyone took part in the intramurals and activities. The band was ably assisted by Don Ken- nedy, Chris Lane, Ian Midgley and Dennis Grimmer, while Gary De Jong, Gary Gagnon, Warren Kusch, Bob Russell, Jerry Roy, Angus McNeil gave their talents to the Glee Club. The Drama Club was helped by the efforts of Gordon Shea, Bruce Richer, Bill Pedersen, Barry Kelly, Gerard Ehnan, Bill Biggin, Owen Foran, Frank Laurillard, and Frank Cyr. The artists in the class were Ron Ducharme, John Oster, Ray Brunelle, Tony Sehn, A1 Graber, Rick Abbott, Dick Bordewick, Mike McLean, Don Rose, Garry Mayer, Paul Belanger, Fred Carney, and Ken Dumont.

CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE 35 GLASSES CONTINUED Glimpsing At 9-A On that fatal day in September ’54 when V.C. opened its doors for another school year, 40 expectant faces gathered outside Room 113, waiting for someone to open the door. These 40 faces were freshman class 9-A. These boys, like all good freshmen, take a greater interest in sports and activities than schoolwork, al- though they all seem to scrape through on the exams. Robin Bailie, Mike Macauley and some half dozen others are in the Drama Club while Bill Schuss is in the Art Class. The Glee Club has claimed Don Baxter, Tom MacNullen, Don MacNeil and Allen Brodie. Ron McKinnon has chosen the newspaper for his activity. 9-A is well represented in sports with Peter Brown, Bob Vanderhoef, and Tom MacDonald. A LITTLE EXTRA TIME on math before class is help to Dave Macauley. " WHO ME?” Mike Verchere, Hayes Brown, and Bill Bryce have a good laugh at Bob Vanderhoef’s expense.

Buried in the forbidding caverns of the third floor, deep among the rubble of desks and books, are 37 freshmen who harass their teach- ers and the classes next door from 8:30 to 3:10 Monday to Friday. When the remnants of last year’s Grade 8 came back after the summer holidays they found quite a few new boys in their class but they soon got to know each other very well. 9-B is very active both academically and sportswise. On the academic side, Paul Whalen and Jim Dukowski are the bright lights, while Ron Coolin and Tony Whitty are the sportsmen. The class is starting its first year of foreign languages, taking both Latin and French, while math and science are getting a little harder. On the whole, the prospects for the Class of ’58 seem to be pretty good and we hope they are. Top, left to right: Bruce Williscroft, Peter Nichols, Tony Whitty, Ron Coolin, Paul Whalen.

LAYOUT STAFF Ed LaRiviere and John Cox talk over an idea, which Cox seems to think is ridiculous. EDITORS Paul Edwards and Edward Arnold took the job of seeing the 1955 Collegian through. YEAR BOOK The first thing you will notice when you see the new yearbook is the Kodachrome cover, first of its kind in B.C. But the improvement does not stop there. Great pains have been taken to make the yearbook perfect in all ways; layout, pictures, captions and writeups have all been given close attention. With their new equipment the photog- raphy staff have turned out pictures of the highest quality. Paul Edwards, the yearbook editor, put in a lot of extra work and did a very commend- able job of distributing work among the different staffs. Each boy was made entirely responsible for his own section and this worked out admir- ably. Before the yearbook could even be started the members of the business staff, under the I YEARBOOK meeting during latter part of year, shows grim and sour faces as deadlines are discussed by Bro. Hickey who can always prove his point. SPORTS EDITOR Andy Getz does a job on his dull assigned sections. 40 Carl Brandes and Robert Kline on feature article. leadership of Archie McDonald, had to put in a lot of work seeing to the finances of the book. They had the momentous task of raising $4,000. This was done chiefly by selling ads, which was made somewhat easier by the new, more attractive ad section which includes pictures, and which features ads placed in alphabetical order. The various staffs then set about drawing up a dummy yearbook under the direction of the layout editors, E. La Riviere and J. Cox. As pic- tures came in, captions had to be thought up and finally the writeups. These were sent to the printer for the " brown copy,” which had to be slightly revised before the final copy could be printed. The quality of this year’s yearbook was made possible chiefly by the constant supervision of Brother Hickey who had extensive experience in handling yearbooks before coming to the V.C. PHOTOGRAPHY STAFF: of the Collegian seen here are Wilson Markle, Don Foran, and Peter Mui. SENIOR SECTION was looked after by Pete Cuming and Shaun Williamson using " hunt and peck” system.

Newspaper Expands The beginning of the ’54-’55 school year saw the school paper taking another step towards its improvement and expansion. It has come a long way since the first volume last year. The two most noticeable improvements were the changing of the paper’s name to the " College Clarion” and the adoption of regular newspaper size and format. Both of these changes were made possible by the separation of the school paper from the year- book. Due to the excellent student response, the editors produced six issues throughout the year. The final issues saw the " College Clarion” emerge as a peppy little magazine, which format it will probably retain for many years. In charge of this rapidly improving journal- istic endeavor is Bill Groom of 12B. He and Bill Cain have done a job deserving of praise. Bro. Cobb moderated this lively activity. In the paper one will find a great variety of new and interesting articles, such as Bill Cain’s " Spotlite on Seniors” and Ron McKinnon’s " What Do You Think.” And we even have a cartoon strip — " Joe College,” by Terry O’Hara. 42 MM A MEETING of members from the various staffs brings comment on new styles from J.

FILING NEGATIVES, Don Foran goes through some 1500 negatives contained in this year’s file. The Camera Wizards In keeping with the principle of making the yearbook strictly a student affair, the first student photography staff was organized this year. Brother Hickey, who has had previous experi- ence in this field, began to teach the boys in a regular class. From this class the more adept students stayed on to form the present staff. With the addition of new equipment, including a new enlarger and an electric print dryer, the boys were on their way. Wilson Markle, with his prized possession, a three hundred dollar Graphic camera, began to cover every school event with the assistance of Peter Mui. Every picture in the school paper and yearbook, outside of the more formal ones taken by a professional, can be credited to them. WASHING of the negatives after development was done by Tom Bird who is taking them from the fixer. 44 CONTENTEDLY PAINTING FLOWERS is Mark Muckle during one of his three Art periods each week LOOKING ON are Mark Muckle and Ivor Bruhaug as Dave Petroski reproduces a painting in Art Class. TRYING THEIR HANDS at re- producing are I. Bruhaug, G. Ross and M. Wyatt during Art Class. Art — Oils, Leather, Copper To accommodate the increasing number of students who wish to enter Art, two new branches have been started this year. Besides Oil Painting, Poster Painting, and Copper Tooling, we now have Lino-Block Printing and Leathercraft. Oil Painting is taught by Brother Walsh, whose paintings are frequently found throughout the school. Two of his most successful followers are Glen Ross and Joe Mui of 12-B. Brother Dennehy teaches Poster Painting, using professional posters obtained from department stores as models. Poster Painting teaches students how to letter, how to produce attractive layout design, and how to select the proper colours. RECEIVING A HELPING HAND from Bro. Walsh is Ken McDougall. Dolf Alberts, Chuck Smulders and Dick Bordewick watch for helpful hints. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE 45 ART CONTINUED ADMIRING his praisworthy attempt at Copper Tooling is Tony Alberts. DISCUSSING one of the many problems that arise concerning Art are Bros. Dennehy and Clarks ' on. Bro. Dennehy taught Poster Painting while Bro. Clarkson taught class in both Leathercraft and Copper Tooling. TRACING DURING THE COPPER TOOLING CLASS IS FRED CARNEY. BR. WALSH TAUGHT PAINTING. NEAR COMPLETION is this sample of Copper Tooling by R. Brunelle. 46 ULGYM TOUCHING UP THIS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD POSTER IS DAVE HILL. In Copper Tooling, which is taught by Brother Clarkson, stu- dents produce figures on copper plates in a dimensional effect. Masters of this were G. Mayer, R. Abbot, and J. Oster of 10-B. Lino-Block Printing, one of the new branches of Art this year, is taught by Brother Dennehy. Pieces of linoleum are carved out so as to leave a silhouette of a picture or design. They are then dipped in paint and applied to paper, cloth, or whatever desired. Some very good examples of this were obtained from W. Schuss of 9-A and D. Hill of 10-A. Introduced at the end of February this year was Leathercraft, which consists of making small leather articles and decorating them with pictures and designs. Examples of these are purses and wallets. LETTERING with a deft hand is Ron Bourgeois in Bro. Dennehy’s Poster Painting class up in room 302. PRACTISING to letter straight lines perfectly is D. Macaulay.

BRO. PASTONE moderated the Van- couver College’s Junior Glee Club. Success Spells This Year’s Glee Club " Trial By Jury,” one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comical operas, was the Glee Club’s main performance for the .past school year. This performance was highly praised by the audience, and according to a gentleman, who studied at College about 20 years ago and has continuously assisted at the College functions, this performance received the longest applause he has ever heard at a College function. This sort of performance was a totally new thing for the Glee Club, which had formerly sung songs like " Wagon Wheels” and " Happy Wanderer.” Franco Oduber, Eric Griffiths, Bob Petty, Grant Paynter and Douglas Scott took the main roles. Mr. Lambert Smith did the dramatic directing, Mr. Watts the musical conducting, Bro. McEnroe, the accompaniment on the Hammond, while Bro. Pastone assisted. 51 THE VICE PRESIDENT, P.

Cobb they elected a president, R. Cloutier; a vice-president, P. Durkin; and a treasurer and sec- retary, A. Maloney. They also elected four cheerleaders from V.C. and four from L.F.A. The club met every two weeks, to practise the cheers and dis- cuss new ideas; one of them being the new yellow sweaters. yc N r c ' Vcl y z • i it ' - ' V -v ■ ■ Wv - V.C.

The play " You Can’t Take It With You” had a mixed cast of students from Vancouver College and Little Flower Academy. It ran for three nights and was a complete success. R. Giroday, A. Sandes, G. Testar, F. Cyr and N. Martin were highly praised for their magnificent perform- ances. " The Christmas Carol” consisted of an all- boy cast from the College, and was only pre- sented for one night. G. Testar, N. Martin and Doug Riley were extensively congratulated for their performances. Mr. Frank Lambrett-Smith, the drama coach, and Bro. Reilly, the moderator, were very proud of the club when they saw the results of their efforts. Even though they knew all along that everything would turn out alright. Why not?

" Focusing on the Junior Drama Club This year’s junior section of the Dramatic Club put on two performances, both at the St. Patrick’s show. The first performance was the presentation of the " Congo” by a verse speaking choir. The " Congo” dealt with the history of the natives of Africa, from ancient times right up to the time of the arrival of Christianity. The second performance was a comical skit called the " The Little Red School House,” which dealt with the last day of school in a rural district. It was a complete riot, they say. BR.

College Band Gets Bigger and Better The Vancouver College Band is especially attractive to those who would like to have some knowledge of music but have neither the time nor the money to visit private instructors. This year there are approximately fifty stu- dents in the Band. Even though the Band started from scratch seven years ago, because of the fire in 1947, it now has a fine selection of instru- ments for those who do not have their own. During the school week, Band practices are held throughout the day for four days. How- ever, not everyone is there at once. There are group sessions and private sessions interchanging so that individual students do not miss too much regular class time. This year, for the first time, the members of the Band are receiving letters; seven-inch for the high school, and five-inch for the grammar school. The Band displayed its talent at the Christ- mas Concert, St. Patrick’s Day, the Graduation, and a few other times throughout the year. The Band has been constantly growing in recent years and there is no reason why it should fail to become bigger and better with each year.

Only grades four to eight participate in tumbling but they have mats, a springboard, and a trojan horse which are essential for most tumbling achievments. During basketball games this year, spectators were entertained by a select group. Brother Clark- son chose them out of his eighty students to put on shows at half-time or between games. The various drills and the stunts that were mas- tered proved to be very interesting and unusual. JUST A SAMPLE of what Bro. Clarkson’s tumbling class can do is this somersault by H.

New Streamlined Library Club • The Library Club is one of the most neces- sary and efficient clubs in the school. Our lib rarian, Bro. Hunt, found a group of 16 boys, six from the high school and ten from the grammar school, who would help him keep the library in tip-top shape. This group’s chores were: making sure books are in order in their respective shelves; pasting date cards on new books; numbering new books; lending out books and making sure of their return; arranging the magazines in their proper places; fixing torn pages and covers. The club members paid five cents weekly and had meetings regularly, with the purpose of discussing new books. At the end of the year they had an outing, which they all enjoyed im- mensely. Individual pins were awarded to each one at the end of the year. The executive branch changed regularly, that is, they had elections every month. The one who stayed the longest as president was G. Shea. PREPARING BOOKS for their respective places on the shelves are G. Shell, S. Nichols, G. dejong. LOOKING up a reference is a lengthy and - involved operation for D. Ball and D. Maxwell. 62 BRO.

Grade VI possesses students which excel either scholas- tically or athletically. But Room 207 possesses something more, something intangible, a tremen- dous school spirit.

Grade 3’s Aggregation Within the four walls of Room 113 may be found a cross- section of youth which personifies the activity of the grammar classes in regard to studies and activities. In every endeavor of the school as a whole, Grade III has always been represented, no matter what the occasion, expense or sacrifice. In the cheering section during a basketball or football game, you are sure to hear the young but loud voices of Grade III, supporting the cause of the college. These young students, having absorbed the necessary knowledge for Grade IV through the efforts of Bro. Harrington, have also excelled in their studies. In short, we are very proud of Grade III because partially through their efforts the school spirit has reached a new zenith. 1st row (1-r) : P .Harrison, W. Colter, B. Burjes, J. Ewonus, M.

College lost 13-0 before jam- packed stadium against their traditional rivals from Seattle. Although Irish gained more yards they were overpowered. I 88 I I The Fighting Irish of Vancouver College, on the slow road back to the football prominence they enjoyed during Greg Kabat’s storied reign several years ago, began their practice for the 1954 season under coach O’Brien in early Sep- tember. These practices strengthened the team and also gave the coach an idea of the material he had. Only seven letter men returned but the new members were better than average. One of these new faces was Sonny Homer, who came from North Vancouver and was proving to be a very good halfback. All in all, the 1954 foot- ball season seemed to be a very promising year. 89 FOOTBALL CONTINUED THE ENTIRE SQUAD. First row (1-r): J. Clark, R. Cloutier, V. Ivancic, Mr. O ' Brien (coach), D.

DISCUSSING the next game are Brother Parent, Dr. Donnelly, team doctor, and Mr. O’Brien, coach. In the first game of the season the Gaels were beaten by a much improved Nooksack club by a heart-breaking score of 14-12. The inability of the squad to convert Sonny Homer’s two great touchdowns, one a 20-yard run and the other a 98-yard ramble, cost them the game. Nooksack opened the scoring by recovering a fumble on their own 3 and dashing away for a T.D. Although Nooksack had a 7-0 half-time lead, the Irish came back when guard, Roger Cloutier, opened a hole and Homer raced through for a major. Nooksack scored again, and, on the kickoff, Homer grabbed the ball and rambled 98 yards for the final touchdown. In the second game of the season the Irish went down to their second straight defeat by losing to their traditional rivals, O’Dea High School of Seattle, by a score of 13-0. Both of O’Dea’s touchdowns came in the fourth quarter. Tom Schmidt passed to Jim Hendrick for the first one. The other came when O’Dea’s great back, Larry Colello, intercepted Rollin’s pass on the O’Dea 20 and went all the way. 90 R. SASGES Tackle B. SOMERVILLE Tackle t n H. LAPOINTE M. MACDONALD Guard J.

In the first quarter, halfback Bill Clark ran 50 yards off right tackle and reversed the field for a touchdown. The conversion failed and the score stood at 6-0 in favour of the Purple and Gold. In the third quarter Sonny Homer ran 55 yards on a similar play for the Irish’s second major. Again the conversion was unsuccessful. Lynden came back in the fourth quarter to score a major and a conversion which made the score stand at 12-7. With a minute to go, Lynden threatened again but College held on for the victory. T.

ROBINSON A FOOTBALL CONTINUED SPECTATORS from College getting off the plane at Olympia before they go to the St. Martin’s game. On the next Saturday, October 8, at U.B.C. Stadium, Vancouver College made history. It was the first time in Vancouver that a football game was shown " live” on T.V. Although only 400 turned up at the stadium itself, countless thousands watched the game on T.V. sets at home. Sonny Homer scored two touchdowns against Meridian. He scored a major in both the first and second quarters to give the Irish a 12-0 half time margin. Both converts were missed. Petroski made it 18-0 in the fourth and Terry Rollins threw to Henry Lapointe in the end zone to get the convert. Rollins, who was playing brilliantly at quar- terback, and Lapointe, a standout at end, brought Vancouver down field again to the Trojans’ six where Rollins scored standing up after reversing the field. The team really looked good for CBUT cameras. Seemed like the boys could do no wrong. But the following week, looking their very best of the ' season, the Gaels of Vancouver Col- lege triumphed over Forks High by a 39-6 score.

O’Brien, being carried off field by Mr. P. LaPointe and Mr. M. M. Stanlow, after the Meridian game at U.B.C. Stadium which V.C. won, 39-6. The Collegians never played, better. Hard- running Sonny Homer was bursting for sensa- tional gains and scored three touchdowns — one a 40-yard run, the other a 92-yard run, and the third a runback after the kickoff. Quarterback Terry Rollins directed the Irish to quarter leads of 12-0, 18-0, 25-6 before they scored two con- verted touchdowns in the final period to end the rout. One of Homer’s touchdowns came on the quarterback optional play. His mate on the half-line, Bill Clark, scored another on the same play. Two other touchdowns were scored by wing- man Lapointe, Rollins chucked the ball, Lapointe caught it, and there was no stopping him. Forks fought back into contention briefly on the first play of the third quarter. Bill Pope of Forks made the only interception of the game when he ran 70 yards to the goal-line. Brother Parent’s charging linemen crushed the game Forks crew and had themselves a smashing good time while the backfielders took advantage of it. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE 93 m. McDonald R. SASGES R.

The Fighting Irish of Vancouver College scored their fourth consecutive win in the next game. The victims this time, a heavier crew from Bellingham. Quarterback Terry Rollins scored for the Irish in the first five minutes of play in the first quarter when he raced seven yards into the end zone on an option play. He passed to Henry Lapointe for the game-winning extra point. George Hoar was a standout on both offence and defence for College, intercepting a Belling- ham pass which ended a late rally. Bellingham led in the statistics, however, with 10 first downs to College’s eight; 183 yards rushing compared to Vancouver’s 144; and 75 yards passing to 68 by the Irish. College received four offside penalties for a total of 20 yards and Bellingham received one clipping penalty and two offside penalties for a total of 25 yards. The final score was 7-6 in favour of College.

When the team got down to St. Martin’s, they were a tired bunch of players and unfortunately lost the game. St. Martin’s had the edge on statistics and scoring all through the game except in the last quarter when the Irish scored two touchdowns in about as many minutes. When the game was over, the score stood at 20-13 in favour of St. Martin’s. All in all, Vancouver College has had a very favourable year thanks to Mr. O’Brien, who is leaving us in June. In his three years at College he has worked verv hard, and this year he was repaid for his work. With a bit of luck, College, this year, may have had seven wins and no losses instead of four wins and three losses. Whoever the coach may be next year, he will really have to work in order to produce a better team in ability and spirit, than the 1954-1955 squad. O’HARA being brought down the kick for a fairly nice gain after running back in the Fork’s game. 96 In its second year in opera- tion, junior varsity football showed a vast improvement in the technique of tackling and blocking. Thinking football all the time seemed to be the key- note, as the boys made field de- cisions more readily and confi- dently than in the past. The coaching this year was in the capable hands of two alumni of Vancouver College — Mr. Gor- don Elliot and Mr. Ian Stewart, both members of the University of British Columbia " Thunder- birds” football squad. While both men were busy with their own season, they found time to handle the J.V. team in their spare time. In the two games the J.V.’s played against Blaine, they lost one and tied the other. The first was lost to us by a score of 13-7 at College, while in the second game, which was played at Blaine, Wash., the J.V.’s managed to tie the game with a score of 7-7.

The usual starting five were Hoar, Dumaresq, Bruhaug, Welters, and MacDonald. Using such means as cars, busses and planes for transportation, the team tra- velled near and far from the distant corners of Washington to the fruit valley of Kelowna and Penticton. One of the most outstanding players of the year was Ivor Bruhaug, leading the team with an average of 18 points per game.

When Brother Finch got his first glimpse of this so-called J.V. team he didn’t know quite what to expect. Later he found out with the team winning the first seven games off tough op- position. The boys are full of punch and drive. John Oster and Rick Abott led the team in sharp- shooting. The rest of the team were continually on the go for that leather orb. These boys are the up-and- coming team for College. Since this is the last year for Mr. O’Brien to be coaching. Brother Finch will more than likelv take the helm next season.

BATES presents Brian Adams with the most valuable player award on Biddy Night at Van. College. 114 Since basketball is an up-and-coming sport in the sports world, they start them young. The mighty mites of Vancouver College started their workout in the gym in late November with 40 youngsters loaded with vim and vigor. The age limit for the boys is 12. Their first game was against Gladstone — and one with glory. The team played about 14 games this season and won eight of them. All of the games were played against youngsters that were three and four years older than our boys, but this didn’t worry them. L. Noland topped the team for height while Brian Adams was the recipient of the most valuable player award for the basketball season. BROTHER CLARKSON HOLDS COUNCIL OF WAR. " I WANT IT, " SAYS A.

Soccer Champs and also Pacific North- west Christian Brothers Champs. In league play, they enjoyed win- ning five and having one draw. But in exhibition games, they won four and lost one. This gives a final record for the whole season of ten wins, one draw and one loss. In the Northwest Christian Brothers Soccer Championship, they defeated Briscoe Memorial School of Kent, Washington, three to one to retain the trophy for the second straight year. Team stalwarts were goalkeeper and captain Gene Filiatrault, fullback Peter Ohier, and centre-forward Bob Arnold. Meanwhile, in addition to the " A” team, College entered a " B” team in the league under the coaching of Rev. Bro. Dennehy. This team was composed of Grades Six and Seven students, and acted as a farm team from which the nucleus of next year’s " A” team is picked. Their record was poor — two draws and three losses, but experience the boys gained will undoubtedly pay off next year. IN A GAME against Sacred Heart, Gerry Gri tries stopping a pass. BRO.

November 5 when College presented a 17-bout card ranging from 45 lb. novices to the 118 lb. main-eventers, the accomplished Paul Boucher of V.C. and Larry Watson of Cedar Cottage. This was a good indication of how fruitful the year was to be and must have given Coach Archie MacDonald an inkling that this was to be a really great year in the history of boxing at College. In the Emerald Gloves, College reached an all-time high with nine champions and five final- ists, the Best Club Award, and two special awards. Paul Boucher was given the Best Left Hand award and Ronnie Volk was named the Most Scientific Boxer of the tournament. The Bronze Gloves, held at Marpole Com- munity Centre, was also dominated by the V.C. battlers. With only 11 entries, the Irish walked off with six championships, four runner-up spots, the Best Club trophy, and two special awards. The Vancouver Herald paid a nice tribute to Archie MacDonald on that occasion when A1 Best, one of Canada’s top sports writers, wrote in his column on the morning of November 22nd: " Vancouver College ran away with the club trophy as they poured forth a swarm of eager youngsters. Coached by Archie MacDon- ald, the team was well trained and won six of the final 16 championships.” Well done, V.C.! 118 PAUL BOUCHER PAT GAYFORD BOB OLSEN RON BOURGEOIS IAN McCUE JIM CONDY BOB KENNEDY RICKY SWARBRICK CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE 1 19 RONNIE VOLK SHANE SIKES ALLAN CLARKE KEN CLARIDGE DOUG STEWART PIUS STECKLER GARY DURKIN PAT GAYFORD GRAHAME CLARKE 120 A FEW TROPHIES THE COLLEGE BOYS WON IN CITY TOURNAMENTS.

Archie MacDonald President of the student body, all-round athlete and a sparkling personality, all wrapped in one, is this year’s boxing coach at Vancouver College, Archie Mac- Donald. Starting Vancouver College in his freshman year, Archie at once became prominent on the boxing team. That year as in his sophomore and junior years he received many trophies for the perfection of his boxing skill and sportsmanlike conduct. In his senior year, he was offered the position of coaching the team instead of boxing himself. He gave Bro. O’Grady, pre- vious coach and now the moder- ator, a hand with training the largest team of boxers ever to be affiliated with Van.

It won its third game from Prince of Wales, scoring II runs to Wales 1. Ron Coolin pitched the entire game with Glen MacDonald subbing for Roger Cloutier in the catching box. College’s next game was a close one. John Oliver downed us 2-1. Mike Dagenais pitched the game. So far the team has not done very well, but there are considerations to be noted. Most of the players consist of Grades 9 and 10 students, therefore it will take a year or so to develop a hard-hitting team. The club is fairly good on defence, where most of its credit goes. Hitting power will develop later as the team members get more experience and more practice. PAUL LECLAIRE prepares to swing as the ball streaks toward the plate. Game was played again st King Ed.

As we go to press the team has won five straight in league play to capture the Western Championship, and also two consecutive wins in exhibition games to give them an unblemished record of seven victories and no defeats. Bro. Kelly did a fine job of coaching for another year, bringing back every one of the K. of C. trophies. He made a clean sweep of soccer, basketball and softball, not losing a league game in any of these sports. Our congratulations to Bro. Kelly and his teams. BR.

Although there are no spectacular bowlers among the group, the records for this year have been good. Andy Getz and Mitch Welters tied for the high single game with 303, while Bro. Reilly, who is one of the steadiest bowlers, took the high three games with the score of 743.

Under the able moderating of Rev. Bro. Reilly, the league started early with six teams entered. The teams were scheduled to play 10 games and the top four teams qualified for the playoffs which followed immediately after the completion of the league. Stack’s team got off to a slow start, losing its first game to Dumaresq. Howes also won his first game and continued his winning stretch by dumping Dumaresq in the latter’s second game. This proved to be the downfall of Dumaresq’s powerful six who, while beating every other team in the league twice, were not able to defeat the Howes’ sextet. Dumaresq won the league with 16 points followed by Howes, Stack and Welters, in that order. The playoffs started with Stack matched with Welters and Howes with Dumaresq. These games proved to be the most exciting of the year with Stack and Howes entering the finals. After three very close games Stack triumphed over Howes and captured the intramural title with the win. CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM: G. Stack (capt.), D. Gur- ton, D. Steel. Front row: R. Abbott, J. Oster, S.

Once again under the direction of Rev. Bro. Reilly, the intramural basketball season was a great success, giving exercise, recreation, and enjoyment to some 40 boys who partici- pated in it. The league this year was not divided into two divisions but was handled as one group. In the league there were six teams, captained by Ken MacDougall, Peter Miller, Franco Odu- ber, Vince Ivancic, Ted Head, and Don Ken- WINNING FIVE (1-r, back row): R. Walz, V. Ivancic (capt.), R.

On one side Oduber played Head and on the other side MacDougall played Ivancic. The semi-final games were total- point, two-game series, and out of these games Oduber and Ivancic emerged winners, and moved into the finals. In this series Ivancic’s team bet- tered Oduber’s, becoming Intramural Champions. Intra-Mural Softball Now that springtime has dawned on the scene at V.C., Bro.

As a result on any week-day you can see three or four games going on at the same time. In the high school, there are four teams in the league, each grade of 1 1 and 12 having an entry in the league. There are usually two games a day, umpired by moderator Bro. Reilly and Bro. Finn.

THE HONORABLE BOARDERS’ COUNCIL: D Al- berts, G. Hoar (president), C. Smulders, F.

First of all, the 50 boarders elected a Board- ers’ Council, consisting of four members, G. Hoar (president), C. Smulders, D. Alberts and F. Oduber. Through this council the boarders patronized two benefit, semi-formal dances. One in the fall, " Exams’ Blues Ball,” and the other in the spring, " The Senior Aloha.” The profits of the two dances were used to paint the recreation room and the locker room, and also to pay for the material used by the Mothers’ Club in re-covering the furniture in the rec. room. Other new additions were two ping-pong tables, crib, chess and cards sets, and a Coca- Cola machine. We need not go through their daily program. We all know it consists of getting up in the morning, Mass five times per week, classes, study periods, play time, etc. It’s a very busy day, indeed, but the boarders are certainly a happy group. Expressions on the faces in the above picture only go to prove veracity of our statement. IN CAFETERIA STYLE, A. Brodey, J. Reynolds, B. Vanderhof, and B.

The boys themselves had many privileges of which Tuesday shows and television rated highly. These " intermediates” had a choice dur- ing the long winter months of basketball or T.V. Many of these boys were on the Knights of Co- lumbus soccer team which won the city finals. During the spring the boys organized two soft- ball teams and had a game every weekday.

A few of the boys have odd jobs of cutting grass and keeping the grounds tidy, for which they receive an allowance that they can spend as they please on weekends. This year one of the boarders, Ricky Gallagher, came first in the school’s marble derby and went on to finish 12th in the city finals out of over 60 contestants from various schools. The boys start the day with Mass five days a week. Two hours of study is required for each boy and the result is that the Honor Roll sees many of them. After study many have hobbies to keep them occupied. Boats and airplanes rate high in this line. Or if the boys prefer, they can join their own band of pianos, drums, melo- phone, and singing. The boarders may go home on weekends or are free from 12-5:30 Saturday and Sunday. Bedtime, much disputed, is 9:00 p.m. MASS in Brothers’ Chapel is offered by Monsignor Nichol. Serving Mass are D.

BERNARD QUINN, O.M.I., the Retreat Master for year 1954-55. RETREAT A retreat is, perhaps, the great- est single opportunity for spiri- tual advancement that is avail- able for a high school student. The real purpose of a retreat is to find out the mistakes made in the past, repent them, and model the future with the idea of omitting these faults and mak- ing yourself more like Christ, the Divine Example. These pur- poses are fulfilled by cutting off all thought of the world around us and by meditating on the prin- ciples of religion. The annual school retreat be- gan on October 13th and lasted to the 15 th. Participants were from Grade 8 through Grade 12. Father Quinn, vocational di- rector of the Oblate Fathers, con- ducted this retreat in Sts. Peter and Paul Church. Father Quinn talked on the problems of youth today in a way that was understood by all; he brought out his points, touch- ing on familiar problems, so that he might clear up things no one else would. He made it possible for every one of the students to have a personal chat with him. FR. QUINN administering Holy Communion to some of the students. THE SIGN of a good Retreat.

Bob receives his instruc- tions from Bro. Dennehy, the moder- ator, and passes them to Grade XII. Apostleship of Prayer The Apostleship of Prayer is a league of prayer in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The essence of the organiza- tion is the sanctification of self and through this first end an- other is also reached, the sancti- fication of a neighbour. At V.C. there are 275 mem- bers, including Grades 7-12. There are nine promoters in all. In order they are: for Grade 12, Bob Boreham; 11, Dan Seymour; iOA, Harvie Eddy; 10B, Ray Brunelle; 9A, Louis Dohm; 9B, Ron Coolin; 8 A, Pat Benedict; 8B, Jack Dumont; 7, James Du- mont. These promoters have their meetings regularly once a month. Their work includes the job of encouraging new memberships and distributing Catholic litera- ture. One of their chief functions is plugging for First Friday Mass and Holy Communion. Under the capable guidance of Bro. Dennehy these boys are doing a wonderful job. Not only are they helping themselves, but also encouraging all the faithful to help in the conversion of souls. i 142 THE LEGION OF MARY, reorganized this year, is under the directorship of Mr. A.

Legion of Last year, under the direction of Brother Unsworth and Prae- sidium President, Mr. Maxwell Stewart, the first unit of the Le- gion of Mary was formed at Van- couver College. This unit was confined to first year high school students and held meetings every Sunday evening. An effort was made last September when classes were resumed to continue this unit but the results were not en- couraging. Some of the former members had moved elsewhere and others found it difficult to attend as homework was a must the last minute before " blue Monday.” Shortly after Christmas it was decided to form a unit made up mainly from Grade Eleven stu- dents. At first the novelty of the idea and the chance of meeting during H and PD attracted some but only a small and faithful group stayed with it. These meet nearly every Friday afternoon under the direction of Mr. A. McKenna, who is an ex-pupil of the Brothers from Bristol, Eng- 143 THE VOCATION CONFERENCE, conducted by Bro.

The V.C. cafeteria harboured the enroll- ment of new and old members. The affair went over extremely well under the convenership of Mrs. Howatt, and all present were delighted with the prospects for 1955.

Previous to the Christmas fes- tivities, the mothers staged a Coffee Party, their final of 1954. This affair proved to be very entertaining. Mr. Purdy, Mrs. Bourbonnais and Mrs. Murison were at the reigns. The annual Spring Carnival took prominence in February and all mothers set to work to make it the biggest and best ever. Their efforts were not ill-rewarded as the affair gave them ample re- ward for their endeavours. For the first time since its foundation, the Mothers’ Club formed a sewing group and a hobby club. Both clubs received enthusiastic members and all concerned received enjoyment while doing a great deal of good work. In concluding, the faculty and students would like to extend their sincere thanks for the past benefits received, and they sin- cerely hope that the future will be as well rewarding as the past. 148 SIDELITES OF ’55 COACH BILL O’BRIEN, at microphone, introduces the varsity football squad of 1955 at annual Gridiron Ball.

HARVEY EDDY AND DUNC GURTON PREPARE FOR GRIDIRON BALL. A school ordinarily provides its students with a good educa- tion, but it should provide other th ings as well. The purpose of this section is to give to our readers an example of one of the more important facets of a high school student’s life, his activities outside o f th e class- room. Our first annual Gridiron Ball in honour o f the varsity football squad of 1955 was an over- whelming success. Under the masterful emceeing of Bob Mac- Donald, the affair proved to be the biggest social success of 1954. Our skating parties and bas- ketball dances also provided our teen-agers with good healthful entertainment. Throughout the school year our social events re- ceived excellent support from our students. Besides these social functions many other activities took place which were not presented strictly for the social benefit of the students. For example, the CYO high school conference, which was held in Cartier Hall, re- ceived the enthusiastic support of the boys. No doubt, the fu- ture plans of many students were altered because of the sage ad- vice received from the university professors present. The pictures in the following section were taken at some of th ese functions.

These 20 members immed- iately set to work in organizing the Senate activities for the com- ing year. However, this year the eight members from Grade 12 formed four teams and began to cam- paign for presidential and vice- presidential positions in the Sen- ate. The nominees, Archie Mc- Donald and Dave Steele, Dave Dumaresq and Bob Macdonald, George Hoar and Henri La- pointe, Gerry Testar and Terry O’Hara, set up committees to further their election plans. The purpose of the Senate this year was: (a) To aid the faculty in maintaining school discipline and enforcement of school regulations; (b) To pro- mote athletic and social activities within the school; (c) To under- take and sponsor worth-while projects in the school; (d) To represent the students in student- faculty relations. This year under the direction of Br. Reilly, Archie McDonald and Dave Steele, the Student Senate has again done its job well and deserves great credit. BR. REILLY, SENATE MODERATOR.

' 47 Grads: Peter and Paul Burns COMPLIMENTS • HAROLD CHISHOLM for flowers that please 233 TRACK GETS LATE START This year marked the first time in many years that V.C. fielded a high school track team. Bro. Cobb, coach of the team, was anxious to make track one of the sports attractions here as it used to be in the past. Turnouts for the team were en- couraging with about twenty-five thin-clads don- ning uniforms. With the exception of four Seniors, Terry Rollins, Dick Dyer, Dave Steele, and Bill Cain, the team is composed entirely of underclassmen who will have at least two more years of competition. The only representative of Grade Eleven is Ernie Puil, potential quarter- miler. The majority of the team is composed of Grade Ten men with such names as Tom Bird, Don Flahiff, Leo Savoie, Paul Joyce, Rick Abbott, John Oster, Ray Brunelle, and Peter Durkin. Grade Nine has four representatives on the team, Larry Wensley, Ed. McDaniel, John Bell, and Ron McKinnon. A lack of meets in the Vancouver area limited the team ' s activities to two main meets, The Van- couver Relays and K. of C. Catholic High School Meet. During the summer months, however, there will be three or four additional meets which in- dividuals will compe te in. SPEEDY DON FLAHIFF takes his mark in the High School Chaimpionship Quarter Mile Relay at the Van- couver Relay Meet last May. Don ran against competitors from most of the high schools in B.C. and Washington. SENIOR TERRY ROLLINS, sprinter, broad jumper, and pole vaulter, rises high in the air to qualify for a place in the Vancouver Olympic Club Meet of this year. JOHN BELL, Grade nine half-miler, finishes up as anchor man on the College Sprint Medley Relay team. 234 SPRINTER TOM MOON breaks the tape in a speedy 10.2 seconds for the 100 yard dash. Tom’s fastest time for the hundred this year was an almost record-shattering 10 seconds flat. An achievement of which he can be proud. this province has created greater job opportunities for ambitious young men and women in B.C. One of the keys to the continued growth of industry here is an ample supply of low-cost electricity. To make sure that there is plenty of electricity for industrial development and for all those new electrical appliances in our homes, the B.C. Electric plans and builds well ahead of demand. By 1957, when construction of the Seton Creek and Cheakamus generating plants are finished, the capacity of the Company ' s Lower Mainland system will have increased over 3 Vi times in the ten years since 1948.
