8 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK ....Ill.I...I.....Ill.........I.mil........ DiiUlonc, won the Junior V.( ).S.S.A. in 19.H :m l 19.?5, ainl also in 19.?8 and 1939. I ' lius in ten years, Kennedy Koothall teams won the V ’.( cliain])ionshii) seven times—a record that is hard to duplicate. In this .si)ort. as in the others mentioned, we have had many outstand- injr stars. Alf Hurley. Brian Casey. Joe Krol. Bill ’I ' emkow. and ' Pony Ciolah. ' Pile first four (jf these al.so won the Sir . rthur Currie Scholarship at the L’niversity of Western Ontario. W ith the introduction of Music to our curriculum in l‘ 37, a Cilee Clul) was formed, and a school orchestra was developed. We can hardly think of .Music in our school prior to this time without associatiiifi the name of Bernard Yuffy with it— Bernie. as he is familiarly known. to|arether with his hrother, Murray, wrote our present school stno ' . Bernie and Walter ' Pronianko were honoured hy heiiifj chosen as two of four ()ntario schoolhoys to represent Canada in a British I ' .mpire Boys’ Hand at hondon, lvnj,dand. We continue to have outstandinjj musicians in our school, and this year, Donald MacCuaig was invited to go to New York to play over a National Radio I look-up. (Iratory has been a high light at Kennedy and no little credit can he given to the teachers of the h ' .nglish Department for developing .such outstanding winners in W.().S.S.. ' . competitions as William Lowe. Dick C.rayhiel. C.wyneth New- hold. Kenneth McIntyre, Jack Wheelton, .Mhert Cohen and Joan Hathaway. In this lime Kennedy has won the Junior Oratorical shield oftener than anv other school in Western )ntario, and thereby holds it in |)ermanent |)ossession. The school has alwa s been proud of our orators and essay writers. On many occasions «)ne or two students have won monetary prizes for writing essays. Imt it was not until this year, 1940, that Kennedy won prizes almost wholesale. In the Hydro h ' ssay contest, Kennedy students won twenty-three prizes amounting to si.xty-seven dollars, tint of a possible total of fifty-four i»rizes—a truly remark- al l ' feat. ' I ' he growth of the student body has heem very great. ' Phe school opened with a few more than six humlred students and this year our enrolment was over one thousand. Only once before in our .school’s history has this been the case. New teachers have been engaged from time to time, until we now have a staff of thirty-two. including our school nurse and the teachers of Home h ' co- noinics and Manual ' Praining. .Many of our students graduate with first class honours and each year sees several students winning University awards. ' Phe Sir .Arthur Currie Scholarship has been won by Kennedy boys five times; its winning depends on both academic and athletic ability. It has been our privilege to have a .scholarship student return to our school as a teacher of Classics—Miss I lughes. ICvery student should strive towards the goal of schoiarshii). . ll may not win, bnt in the striv¬ ing much success is gained. ' Phe efforts put forth and the habits formed are likely to carry over into other fields of endeavour. 1 have confidence that in future years Kenne ly C. I. will contimie to send out stinlents wlu) will bring honour and distinction to their .Alma Mater. So many activities devekip in a school the size of ours, that it is difficult to enumerate all. ' Phe Dramatic Society annually entertains the student body with its fine productions. ' Phe Literary Society, the League of Nations C.roup, the Junior Red Cross, the Chess Club, the Current Kvents Club, the Christian I ' ellowship Club, the Radio Club, the Camera Club and the Stamp Club are some of the organizations that have helped foster the sjiirit of good fellowship which has prevailed throughout the school since it was organized. In 19.?0 .Mr. .A. (L Hooper was called to the Department of lulucation in ' Poronto to become one of the High School Inspectors. .Mr. (L S. Campbell, the Vice-I’rincipal, then became prin- cijial. He held this position until November of 19.R), whe n he was appointed Superintendent of Schools for the City of Windsor. It was during .Mr. Campbell’s first year as Principal that the Forum was r»rganized. It is made up i ( the student body who elect their own officers at a general election in September each year. ' Phese officers, representing each grade in the school, a«hninister all student activities, through various committees, which raise money through dances and sports to finance trips of school teams, buy uniforms and awards, and sui»ply special needs of the school not otherwise provided. Mr. Knapp has acted as a capable adviser from its inception, bnt itearly every teacher in the school is associ¬ ated with it through committees. .Mr. Campbell was succeeded by .Mr. Leonard Wheelton, Princii)al of Patterson Collegiate Institute, who carried on in his usual efficient manner and maintained the high standards of his predecessors. ' Phe untimely death of .Mr. Camj)- bell in July, PH9, w:is very keenly felt by .all who had been associated with him ; the schools, especially Kennedy, lost a very dear friend, and the community at large an outstanding educator. In September of that year. Mr. Wheelton was .il)pointed by the Board of Ivducation to take up the duties of Superintendent of Schools and he, in turn, was succeede l by the jiresent Principal. .A decade has passed. I have tried to tell of some of the accomplishments of our school, but the future lies ahead. ' Phe last ten years were } ears of peace, but now that dread monster VY.ar iias raised its head and interfered with normal life, let us pray that we may be able to continue our democratic ways and hope that not loo many jf us may have to give our lives in serving its cause. We must be free. We must carry on our institutions as in the past. Our girls and boys must bear the t(jrch for the generations to come. VN ' hat sacrifices we may endure are not yet written, but what ever they be. I believe our stu¬ dents. instillerl with the desire to live u]) to the past, will accomplish greater deeds and write new records in the years to come. —.A. ]■ ' . S. ( ' iill)crt.

10 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK . ..Illllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllltlllllll.IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII4IIIIIIIII...Illllltlll.Illllllllllllllll.I.Illllllllllllllllllllllllllllll TO THE STUDENTS The scliool year is fast drawini; to a close. It is now the time to look hack and examine oiir ])ast activities, and to take note of any way in which they may he imprcjved. •And what is in more need of imiirovement than our school spirit. In past years, the .Athletic Committees have annually been able to report sizeable financial dividends. ' Phis year, however, the stor} ' has been sadly different—and why?— r.ecause of insufficient student support. Three thousand less stmlents saw Kennedy basketball allies in 1940 than in 19.58. .And yet our dances have attracted larger crowds than ever before. .Are Kennedy students all becomiiifj socialites or do they hold themselves above supportinj the teams? It is ;i positive fact that the Kennedy teams are of the same fisjhtin ' calibre as their ])re lecessors. Our teams proved the bijjj est stumblinjj ' blocks in the path of the ultimate victors in both basketball and football. 1 venture to say, that, if our teams had consistently had the supi)ort they desired, the Sr. Ru dw trophy and possibly the Sr. Basketball trophy would ■low be reposiiifj in our show-case. It’s a down- rif,du crime to expect the boys to win while playiufj before rows of empty seats, where scores of enthusiastic boosters ought to be sitting. I agree that a team which consistently loses, and in so doing, shows poor form and complete indifference to the outcome should not expect your sujiport. But when has such a team sup¬ ported Kennedy—NMCVER! On .Ajiril 15th. over OO students jammed the gym. to witness the spectacle of our Sr. basket¬ ball team versus the men teachers. Where were all these supporters during the season just completed? Students, are you being fair with your fellow members? Can you give anv concrete rea.son for your attitude of complete indiffer¬ ence? If so, please let us know. L ' ndoubtediv there is .something lacking here—be it a compe¬ tent cheer leader, or what. I can ' t say. But it’s ui) to us to solve this jiroblem and pull ourselves out of the doldrums. Remembering that oft- rejieated phrase L ' nited we stand, divided we fall.” let’s all plan to throw our full support behind every school activity in the future. With but little space left me. 1 should like to mention the achievements of this year’s Imriim. It was through your Forum that student theatre cards were introduced to Windsor. This Maga¬ zine which I hope you are now enjoying would be impossible without the financial backing of the I ' orum. While speaking of the magazine, let me heap a few bouc|uets on its editor, Forrv J ' togers and the members of his staff for their ,-DOWLERS- untiring effort.s and this fine realization of their hard work. Boiupiets should be also given to the social committee for the fine dances it has put on this year, and for keejiing the Forum well sup])lied with funds. Sjiace will not permit me to mention the achievements of the other committees indi¬ vidually. but all deserve your plaudits for their yeomanlike service. Finally you will be interesteil to know that the h ' oruni has ap] ro.xiniately $400 in the treas¬ ury. This must lie spent before school adjourns as it is against the h ' orum Constitution to hold over money to the next year. If you have any helpful ideas for spending this money, let your rejiresentative know. But when culling over ideas in your brain, keep in mind the slogan of the ■Altiora I’eto Society, “1 seek higher things.” —Ned Carrington. I’resident, Forum. ADVICE TO THE NINTH-GRADERS While chatting the other day with some gnids and filth-formers. I brought iip the .subject of the lower school. The verdict was in.stantaneoiis and imanimous. They arc a lot of impolite and distasteful brats. Fifth- formers arc had enough hut the lower .school is terrible. Most of the remarks were blasphemous but milder ones were If one more of those kids goes between my legs, I’ll -. Look at that one; he has to stand on tip¬ toe to drink at the fountain.” When I he atmosphere had cleared and the ruffled feathers had settled hack into place, we reviewed the item of ninth-graders attending the big school dances. Definitely they shouldn ' t he there. The reason, you a.sk? Merely prejudice perhap.s—hut the answer remains the same. •A few rules are sure to do no harm and indeed may he of invaluable assistance to the nninitiated of the ninth grade. Ill the halls and doorways, remember to stay in single file (after all, it ' s a rule). .At noon, obey the prefects. On you too may fall the onerous task of uphohling law and order some day. (That means you may be a prefect yourself some day). Bowing low when a teacher or an Upper School student goes by has gone out of style hut I ' .mily Post tells me that a little common ccurteSN goes a long way. If you must chew gum (you never sec Upper School students giving in to sucli a habit) do your extercise with it between clas.se.s and then deposit it within the awaiting receptacle, called a waste¬ basket. (If you are tardy, the teacher will probably remind you). The main reason you arc at school is, of course, to learn something. However, the school hoard doesn ' t mind your showing a mild sort of interest in athletics. If it’s too itiucli bother to get out and work for a posi¬ tion on one of the teams, at least get out and give the teams your whole-hearteil support. Regular attend- ers at our games this year have been rewardeil by some of the closest and most exciting games that any one could ask for. Now, one last piece of advice given to me by my friend Confticious: Don’t lake any wooden nickels.” —Sandy .McOaw Smart Clothes for Students Always Head the “Honor Roll” in Style and Value . . .
