12 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK I SECONDARY SCHOOL ATHLETICS ( f the many traits which jjradiially dcveloi) in children, the .spirit of play is most pre lominant. A child who does not have the desire to play is usually not considered normal. . s bodily development c«)ntinnes. the need of physical activity becomes more and more neces.sary. This physcal activity }fradnally revpiires supervision and discipline which in a large measure is obtained in the schools. When a boy attains high school age his physi¬ cal energy requires an outlet. Many students do not jiarticijiate in athletics due to fear of criticism or ridicule by their associates. Many boys are self-conscious and hesitate to try their hand at games because they fear their efforts will not lead to jierfection. (Occasionally we meet boys who do not wish to exert the energy re(|uired for participation in games. Such students are few in the lower forms but are (juite common in our upper school classes. There are pupils in our fifth forms who never held a baseball bat, never caught a softball, never scored a basket nor made a tackle. There are naturally boys who dislike team games but there are otlier sports in which they may participate. In spite of this fact, the same students referred to above have never swung a golf club, never wielded a tcnni.s racket nor dived six feet of clear water. In one physical education class composed of fifth form students several informed me that their only exercise is dancing. Now dancing is undoubtedly a splendiil form of recreation ami has its jilace in social life. However the energy which is contained in the body of the normal boy reipiires a stronger outlet than dancing. In general, boys who do not eliminate the sur|)lus energy are the ones wlm roam the streets without sujiervision or otherwise get into difficidtics. ' I ' lie modern higli school offers an attractive program of athletics which should appeal to every normal youth. Twenty years ago the athletic jirogram of most schools was extremely limite l due to lack of eeptipment and lack of knowledge concerning the benefits of a balanced physical eilncation course. With few exceptions there was little coaching as we know it today. In Kennedy Cidlegiate there are programs of both team games and individual activities. It is realized that every student has different tastes in athletics as in other things. With all the activities now offered in this school every boy should be able to par¬ ticipate in some physical e.xercise which appeals to him. Not only are there school teams which compete in extramural schedules, but there are also intramural activities within the reach of every high school boy. Kennedy Collegiate is fortunate in the extent of its e |uipment and yet there are a large number of our students who do m)t avail themselves of the privileges jiro- vitled. Many of our npiver school boys are even toil iiuhdeni to remove their clothes for a swim. Swimming is an activity which is generally- regarded as the finest form of exercise. Other athletics conducted in this school include tennis, pingpong, softball, water polo, football, soccer, track and field events, and basketball. In selecting the members of school teams a number of candidates .are naturally eliminated, ' riiere are always numerous candidates for junior teams and a shortage for senior teams. . ny boy who is not cho.sen for a schotd team should not be discouraged and should make another attempt as soon as ])ossil)le. ivven if he is never selected to represent his schtiol, he is bound to derive some benefit which will aid him in the future. He will at least have a knowledge of that jiar- ticular sport. l or the stu dent who cannot attain the necessary skill to become a member of a team, there is always ample opportunity in intramural competition. In the past two or three years we have had difficulty in obtaining a suf¬ ficient number of participants to compete in intramural schedules, jiarticularly in the middle and upper school classes. When it is considered that interform games include basketball, football, softball, tennis, track and field. ping|)ong, swim¬ ming, etc., there can be little excuse for lack of participation except indifference. Kven though students do not desire to par¬ ticipate actively in sports they can always jiartici- l)ate as spectators. The boy who is not even interested in witnessing an athletic contest is below average. When school teams compete against other schools in various sports there is plenty of oi i ortimity for the student body to support their representatives. In Kennedy Col¬ legiate there is a large part of the .student body which is absolutely indifferent to school activities. The benefits of athletics are generally recog¬ nized as essential to the average boy. I ' lealthful growing bodies retjuirc the exercise jirovidcd by games. .Xthletics not only j)rovide an ijutlet for youthful energy, but also provide development mentallx and spiritnally. Team games teach a boy the meaning of co-operation, sportsmanshi] and friendshij). . thletes learn early to show con¬ sideration for others. They become accustomed to discipline, .so necessary in ordinary life. Youths who have participated in athletics find little difficulty in making associates in new circum¬ stances. .Athletes arc constantly striving for perfection, which is the goal in any vocation they follow after graduation. The criticism is often given that athletes neglect acamedic work in favour of sports. It should be noted however that students rcfiuire a ])ass to partiepate in games. There are numerous students who lo not play games of any kind and still fail to obtain a ]i.assing standard. In athletics, strength, ability and mental alertness are matched. .Ml athletics recjuire a competitive spirit and in a growing boy the devclo])mcnt of this spirit is absolutely es.sential. The basic principle of all athletic competitions is that of the Olympic (lamcs: to develop a higher type of maidujod. —Mr. ( ' leorge Chapman.

MATHEMATICALLY SPEAKING DID YOU KNOW- ‘■ ' 1 hat it would take one person three weeks to count one million onc-dollar hills?? —nice work, thotiKh if you etiuhl get it! Tliat King Henry 1 decreed, the distance from the end of his nose to the end of his thuinl was the lawful yard?” That, in (lerinaiiy, in the sixteenth century, the rod was measured thus: Stand at the iloor of a church on a .Sunday, and hid sixteen men to stop, tall ones and small ones, as they happen to pass out of .service; then make them put their leH feet one behind the other and the length thus obtained shall be a right and lawful rod?” That the answer to ((•))•)• would take one man over a liundred years to write down and would he a number over one thousami miles long? ■■ ' I ' hat .some of the early Egyptians represented the number lOt) by a drawing like a corkscrew—and the number l.tMKI.tKMI by a drawing of a man looking sur¬ prised—ami that .some Indians said 21 by saying ‘one’ on the hand of another Indian? That in the manufacture of some automobile parts. Johaunsou blocks are used, which make possible meas¬ urements of one-millionth of an inch, which is finer than one-thousandth of a h air? That an army of one million men marching three abreast would more than reach from Windsor to Chicago in l would take more than three days to march past any point? “GYPPED” BY THE INDIANS Long ago the Dutch bought Manhattan Island from the Indians for $24 and a bottle of whiskey. If the $24 iiatl been investi.-d at compound interest, it would amount by now to four bilhon dollars and Manhattan Island is valued at three billion, eight hundred million dollars. I have so built my house, writes Professor Po| off. that the windows on all four sides face south. The Great Pyramid (about the size of Kennedy grounds and stadium) took 100,(MK) workmen 30 years to build. Over 2,()()(),(K)() blocks of stcnie averaging two and a half tons were used. The roofs of the chambers were granite blocks 27 feet long and 4 feet thick weigh¬ ing 54 tons each and these were transported from a rpiarry 60t) miles away and (ilaced in their position over 200 feet above the ground. ' 1‘he largest existing obelisk (a single tapering stone pillar) f|uarried about 1,5(X) B.C., was 105 feet long, nearly 10 feet sipiarc at the larger end and weighed about 4.10 Ions. It was set up in front of the Temple of the Sun at ritebes. —Mr. Lowden. THE CHEMISTRY OF WOMAN Kl HT Ilfs NOTK—Owing In llir eiiMSliint ileiniinil frniii stiiileiilH for seienlll ' le iiitnrniiitinii regai ' illng the Imtile eheinleui niake-nn nf uniiiuii, we herewith lire.sent the tniiowing article liy II. I ' harirnek. H.Se.. in The Itueheinr. ' I ' he tlemcnt called Woman is a member of the htiiiian family and has been assigned the chemical symbol of Wo. The accepted atomic weight is 120, although a number of isotoiies have been identified, having weights ranging frtim y5-4(R), Occurrence—It is abundant in nature and fotiinl both free and combined, usually associated with Matt. That fouml in one ' s own locality is iirefcrred. Physical Properties —A number of allotropic forms have been observed, their density, transparency, hard¬ ness. colour and boiling-iioints varying within wide limits. The colour exhibited by many siiecimens is a surface phcnomenoii, and is usually due to closely adhering powder. It has been found that an unpolished specimen teinls to turn green ' in the iircseiice of a highly polished one. The boiling-point for some varieties is (|uite low, while others are likely to freeze at any moment .Ml varieties melt under proper treatment. The taste varies from sweet to very bitter, ileiiending upon environment and treatment. Chemical Properties—Wo absorbs, witbout dissolving, in a number of liipiiils, the activity being greatly increased by alcohol. Seemingly unlimited (piantities of expensive fo id can also be ab.sorbed. Some varieties catalyse this food into fat in accordance with the formula PV:=nRT. Many naturally-occurring varieties are highly’ magnetic. In general, the magnetism varies inversely with the cube of it.s age. Some varieties tend to form . nne-inns. others Cat-ions. Their ionic migrations vary widely. .All vari¬ eties exhibit a great affinity for .Ag. .An, and Pt, and for precious stones both in the chain and ring struc¬ tures. The valence towards these substances is high and its study is complicated by the fact that its residual valence is never satisfied. .Many stable and unstable unions have been described, the latter in the daily iiress. Some varieties are highly explosive, and are exceedingly ilangcrous in inexperi¬ enced bands, in general, they tend to explode spon¬ taneously when left alone by man. The application of pressure to different specimens of Wo produces such a variety of results as to defy the (irinciples of Le Chatelier. L ' ses—Highly ornamental, wide aiiplication in the arts anil flomestic sciences, .Acts as positive or negative catal ’st, as the case may be. I’seful as a tonic in the alleviation of suffering, sickness, low s| irits, etc., etc. Efficient as a cleaning agent. aiid as an eipializer of the distribution of wealtb. It is probably the most power¬ ful (income) reducing agent known.
