St. Andrew's College ONTARIO HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONS 1993 THE ANDREAN Volume 37, Number 1, Spring 1993 For the third time in eleven years the St. Andrew's first hockey team travelled to Northern Ontario and won the provincial hockey championship.

Saints Win Ontario Hockey Championship The soft words of welcome from the Chief of the Eagle Lake Band will be remembered forever by the young St. Andrew's visitors. Chief Arnold Gardner proudly welcomed the first hockey Saints and the opposing team, the highly skilled Fort Frances Muskies, to the Eagle Lake First Nations Arena for the third game of the 1993 All Ontario Hockey Championships. After a scoreless first period, St. Andrew's centre D'Arcy Sweet stole the puck at centre ice and broke in alone to score. A few minutes later Fred Perowne made it 2-0 and effectively silenced the large local crowd. Third period goals from Perowne and Geoff Brennagh, combined with the shutout by Scott Bonnell, advanced the Saints to the playoff round. Earlier they had demolished Osgoode from Ottawa 11-1 behind four goals from Nick McQuire, three from Perowne and a pair from high scorer Marc Belliveau, and followed that with a 4-1 victory over Denis Morris Redmen of St. Catharines. Coach Al Dunford would later look back on the Muskies' game as pivotal. "We played an outstanding hockey game. It set the stage for the medal round and established our momentum", he said. Fort Frances had been the host in 1982 when Dunford first coached the Saints to the provincial championship and "they wanted to repay us for that dramatic 3-2 win in their own Arena", Al continued. Dryden was the venue - a twenty-hour bus ride and a time zone from Aurora - for the 1993 OFSAA hockey championships. Residents of the town welcomed the seventeen participating teams from all over the province. The Saints continued their march to the gold medal with a quarter-final victory over the London area representative Central Huron of Clinton. The defensive unit, led by Captain Brian McKague, continued to dominate. They had received a tremendous challenge when third- year star Jason Reid broke his leg during the March break, however rookie James Clarke stepped in and handled the pressure with the poise of a veteran. James Brown, named to The Toronto Star's first all-star team, and Matt Thorne were outstanding defensively, while Scott Bonnell allowed just four goals in total in six games between the pipes. Advancing to Saturday's final four, the Saints played text-book hockey in the semi-final to defeat Nelson of Burlington, while Henry Carr Crusaders of Etobicoke nipped Fort Frances 5-4 in overtime to set the stage for the 1993 championship game. Craig McFarlane got the Saints on the scoreboard first in their quest for gold. McFarlane is one of the hardest workers on a team of hard workers. Less than three minutes later Marc Belliveau scored his 70th goal of the season on a pass from Alex von Arb. Period one was over and the score stood at 2-0. After a scoreless second period, the teams traded goals in the third. Fred Perowne got his sixth of the tournament with assists from his brother Charlie and Steve Mantrop. The Crusaders finally beat Bonnell with forty seconds left in the game. The third trip to Northern Ontario in eleven years produced the School's third OFSAA gold. Steve Kimmerer, who coached the Saints to victory in North Bay in 1987 said, "The addition to the coaching staff of David Galajda who worked with the players on their strength, conditioning, fitness and diet was a large part of our preparation." Kimmerer also praised Al Dunford's hard work and long hours. Dunford deflected any praise saying, "In team sports, in order to be successful, the 'team chemistry' has to be right. This year we had outstanding leadership from our senior students and Brian McKague did a tremendous job as Captain. From the first tryout ... to the final whistle ... he led by example", said Dunford. The Saints final win was their fiftieth of the season against only seven losses and three ties. Unfortunately, one of the losses was to Nichols in the I.S.A.A. final, 6-5 in overtime, but the Saints quickly regrouped, refocused and won their third provincial title, a weekend which will be long remembered. W. J. Herder Saints Win The MacPherson Tournament 1993 "That's a grand Scottish name!" "Yes, it is Jack." "Will there be pipers?" "Yes." "Can I get in free?" This is a snippet of a discussion that we had with a Scottish friend as we hurried across the playing fields, past the tall green building with the clock tower and through the Town Park. It was the evening of Friday, January 29th around 6:30 and the weather bitterly cold. This was the date of the tenth anniversary of the MacPherson Hockey Tournament, a showcase for the best teams in Canadian High School Hockey. Although St. Andrew's had hosted the event since its inception, the College had never won the trophy. Distinguished hockey playing schools such as Nichols of Buffalo and the St. Charles College Cardinals were prominent on the plaque. We hastened into the arena. Students of the College were assembled in great numbers. The Pipes and Drums marched Featured on the ice prior to Friday night's opening ceremonies is the S.A.C. Pipe Band. Four members of the class of 1993 played major roles in the MacPherson Tournament win.

Red banners and large red foam fingers indicated to our opponents who was to be Number One. In the feature game our adversaries were the Cole Harbour Cavaliers from Nova Scotia. Within seconds of the opening face-off St. Andrew's had taken the lead through a penalty shot by Fred Perowne, the youngest player on the ice. Despite the valiant efforts of the Cole Harbour goalkeepers, the result of this game was never in doubt and St. Andrew's emerged as 6-1 victors. We left the arena looking forward to the Saturday evening game, assured of first place standing in the Meagher Division based on earlier success over Ridley College and St. Charles from Garson, near Sudbury. The St. Joseph-Scollard Hall Bears from North Bay were a strong physical team. One of their more effective players was Claude Levasseur. Another notable feature of their squad was the term 'Missing Link' attached to the helmet of the backup goalie which led to some unkind conjecture from the crowd — Missing Ice Time — Missing Talent, etc. Lively support from a vocal crowd intoning "Good Goalie, Bad Goalie" and "it's all your fault," gave the home team a decided advantage. The formula of the Belliveau/Sweet/von Arb line backed up by strong defensive play from McKague, Brown and Reid combined with the stellar goaltending of Scott Bonnell carried the day by a score of 4-2. Pressure was now building for the "Final Game", a match which Brian McKague, Captain of the Saints, accepts the MacPherson Trophy from the Headmaster. pitted the Saints against our Independent School rival Nichols. That school, with its excellent hockey tradition, had always produced speedy teams with high quality passing. Veteran Coach Frank Sacheli and colourful Manager Howard Saperston Jr. Saints Win The MacPherson Tournament 1993 Marc Belliveau accepts the J.P. McClocklin Most Valuable Player Award from Jim Herder '64. plotted the return of the MacPherson Trophy to Buffalo on the same day as the Bills took on the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. The final game was a seesaw battle, with the Saints taking an early lead on a goal which saw the Nichols keeper caught underneath players at the side of his net. After this, Nichols stormed back to score two in the second period. The feisty play of their Captain, Joe Curazzoto, seemed to upset the normally steady St. Andrew's defence. At this time the Alternate Captain of the Saints, James Brown, made some critical defensive moves which kept the local team within a goal of the visitors. The third period was intense and exciting. With just under nine minutes to go, Nick McQuire shot the puck into the bottom corner of the Buffalo net, tying the score at 3 on a breakaway. Then, with 26 seconds remaining in regulation time, McQuire was again the hero as he took advantage of a Nichols defensive lapse to break in alone on the right. From an unlikely angle he rifled the puck into the back of the goalie's skate and into the net. Even McQuire allowed that this was not his prettiest goal, yet it was the decisive shot of the Tournament. After ten years of trying, St. Andrew's had won the MacPherson Tournament! For a decade, teams have appreciated the competition for the quality of the hockey and the diligence with which Messrs. Robin Fraser, Bob Baun was the guest speaker at this year's luncheon, (l-r) Greg Baun, Captain of the Saints in 1979, ]ason Baun '93, Bob and Jeff, Captain in 1978. William Laceby, Gary West, Stuart Swan and Jim Herder have organized the event. We were particularly proud of the Saints' coaching triumvirate of Al Dunford, Steve Kimmerer and David Galajda and the players who again proved that they are amongst the best High School Hockey Teams in Ontario. Who knows but we think that we may be able to entice an "old Scotsman" back to the tournament next year! P. D. Robinson The "Old Saints" were well represented at the MacPherson Weekend, with nearly forty Old Boys playing in the first annual "Red and White" game. Colonel Tilston A Tribute Following is the text of the Eulogy delivered at the funeral of Colonel Frederick A. Tilston V.C. by his friend Kingsley Ward. Each of us here today, Fred, along with your many friends around the world, holds a precious memory of our association with you over the years. Let the world know that today we pay homage to one of its great men whose courage, modesty and faith were inspirations to all of us. What a great pride you were to your dear wife Helen, equally so to your son Michael and his wife Helen and to your sisters Mary and Josephine. To your many friends, fellow war veterans, business associates, and people from all walks of life, including Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother and Prince Philip, you were our hero, a word you tended to shy away from. Your war veteran friends here today, Fred, will recall your period of training in England with your beloved Essex Scottish regiment. Others were with you in the Normandy battles and some later in Holland in that harsh winter of 1945, and during an even harsher period of heavy On Prize Day a student in each grade at St. Andrew's is selected to receive a Tilston Award which "honours the boy who, in the opinion of the masters, sets the best example in his class for effort, persistency and tenacity, in his studies and in all other School activities. " Colonel Tilston A Tribute fighting and soaring casualty lists in February, March and April of that year. In 1983, thirty-eight years after your victorious battle of March 1, 1945, you returned for the first time to the site of your V.C. action in the Hochwald Forest. It was a serene woodland, but one still clearly marked by the scars of war. What a privilege it was for me to be with you on your memorable return. As you described that vicious battle, in your usual humble way, I could only marvel at the courage of you and your men and the fact that you survived — to which you jokingly replied, "Yes, but minus a few pieces". You and I made a number of trips over the years to visit "the boys who never came home" from both wars. One November 11, WB were in that famous World War I town of Ypres, Belgium; another time, in London. Standing back and watching you speak with some of your many admirers during these visits, I could not help but appreciate anew your rare sense of humility, patience, dignity and respect for your fellow man. It was there I remember telling you that certainly you must have been the gallant soldier and gentleman that Queen Victoria had in mind when she created the Victoria Cross. Your only response to that was your comment on your good fortune to have survived the war and that after all, the select few awarded the V.C. all know they wear it on behalf of the many others whose actions were equal to or even more deserving of the honour. Some of your friends here today worked with you during your long business career with Sterling Drug. As you overcame the challenges of your physical injuries, so you met the challenges of the business world until your leadership qualities led you to the office of the President. Your modest comment about that achievement was, "I had a lot of help." As a philanthropist, you quietly supported many worthwhile projects. As well as I knew you, I never heard you mention any of these good works except the Burn Unit at Wellesley Hospital and the annual Tilston Best Effort Awards at St. Andrew's College in Aurora. The Burn Unit was especially dear to your heart. You were once asked if you ever felt sorry for yourself while in hospital in England or later, learning to walk on your artificial legs. Your response was that after seeing the plight of the men in the burn unit of the hospital in which you were treated, you could never feel sorry for the inflictions that were imposed on you. Among your many contributions to your fellow man were your efforts to assist the War Amputees of Canada. By your example you were able to assist not only other fellow veterans, but children and people of all ages attempting to cope with physical burdens. Following is a letter written to the London Daily Telegraph last Friday by one of your former Commanding Officers now living in England. It fittingly expresses the thoughts of all of us who knew you. It reads: Dear Editor: Your fine obituary to this brave man leaves little more to say. But as his Commanding Officer during the Caen Falaise battle in Normandy in 1944 I had a special insight into his abilities and character. Not only in a physical sense was he a giant of a man but in character and Christian values as well. Firm, a born leader, with a strong devotion to duty, keen understanding of human nature and a wonderful sense of humour. These qualities he exercised with modesty on the battlefield and in civilian life. Lt. Colonel Peter Bennett, Essex Scottish Regiment Fred, you've now been called to enter the Headquarters of your Supreme Commanding Officer - you, still the giant of a man you always were, but young again now; and whole again now; and we hear your Supreme Commanding Officer's words: "Well done, my good and faithful servant!" G. Kingsley Ward Kingsley Ward is the author of three books: Courage Remembered, Letters of a Businessman to his Son, and Letters of a Businessman to his Daughter. Mr. Ward is a member of the Board of Governors ofS.A.C. and Chairman of its Finance Committee. Colonel Tilston A Tribute Former Aurora Mayor, Richard lllingworth, addressed the S.A.C. students on Remembrance Day, November 11, 1992. He paid a tribute to his friend and fellow war veteran, Fred Tilston:- He was called a hero, but Fred Tilston saw himself as a soldier's soldier. He seldom talked about his Victoria Cross and when he did, he shared it with those who fought alongside him in the Hochwald Forest on March 1, 1945. This eloquent man and unassuming hero died September 23, 1992, in the veterans wing at Sunnybrook Medical Centre. He was 86 and one of the last surviving Canadian V.C. holders. Colonel Tilston was born in Toronto in 1906 and studied at the Ontario College of Pharmacy and the University of Toronto. He joined Sterling Drugs in 1930 and moved to the Company's head office in Windsor, Ontario. He became Sales Manager and later President with the move of Sterling Drugs to Aurora in the late fifties. He retired in 1971. While working in Windsor, he joined the reserve battalion of the Essex Scottish in 1940. A year later he volunteered for overseas duty and joined the Lome Scots. He rejoined the Essex Scottish about the time of the disastrous Dieppe Raid and became captain and adjutant. He was wounded, once during battle school training and again during the Battle of Falaise Gap when his jeep hit a land mine. The Hochwald Forest defence line was heavily fortified by the enemy because it protected the vital Wesel bridge escape route. The Essex Scottish were ordered to breach the defence line and clear the northern half of the forest. The attack began at 7:15 a.m. and there was no tank support due to the soft ground. Tilston, then a major, was in charge of 'C Company. He led the attack across 500 yards of flat, open country in face of intense enemy fire. He was wounded in the head but continued to lead his men forward under heavy fire and through 10 feet of wire. He silenced an enemy machine-gun post with a grenade and was the first to reach the enemy position and take the first prisoner. He was wounded in the hip but struggled to his feet to rejoin his men. His company was reduced to 26 men, one quarter of its original strength. When the enemy counter- attacked, he moved from platoon to platoon organizing defenses and directing fire. During one of his trips a mortar round hit him in the legs. His legs were later amputated because of the wounds and his left eye was removed because of damage caused by shrapnel. On artificial legs he was an inspiration. Despite physical handicaps, he travelled extensively in Canada and around the world to promote the cause of Canadian veterans. One of his many interests was St. Andrew's College. The Colonel Tilston Awards were established in 1984 by Tilston and Kingsley Ward, a member of the Board of Governors. He loved Canada. In an address to the Aurora Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, later named after him, in 1967 during Canada's Centennial year, he said: "Merely to think of Canada gives me a sense of what I call the glory of our vast country, and the glory of being and feeling like a Canadian." Remembrance Day is not a celebration of war, but a celebration of peace and freedom. On this Remembrance Day, let us pause and remember the high ideals for which our soldiers fought and died and our gallant Fred Tilston, a soldier, an officer, a gentleman and a friend. R. lllingworth Dear Mr. Herder, As we discussed a few weeks ago, I am interested in establishing an endowed scholarship in honour of Colonel Fred Tilston, V.C. For many years Colonel Tilston has recognized fellow Andreansfor "setting the best example for effort, persistency and tenacity in all school activities". I feel that we, the recipients of the Award, deserve to acknowledge Colonel Tilston for his efforts on behalf of all Andreans. Please direct my contribution to the Tilston Scholarship, and it is my hope that Andreans everywhere will join me in this endeavor. I will be happy to help in whatever way 1 can. Sincerely, Ian Howey '87 Colonel Tilston Memoirs of Dr. Donald R. Clark The operation was called "Blockbuster". We had been informed to expect heavier than usual casualties. I was out with the forward company of the 11th Canadian Front Ambulance, made up of two Medical, one Administrative and one Chaplain Officer with about sixty all ranks. The day before the assault on the Hochwald defences, we moved into position tucked in behind 4th Brigade and the Essex Scottish in a blown-out church and dug in for the night. Casualties were light the following morning. We were ordered to close up to be ready to move forward. Suddenly in the afternoon we were flooded with wounded. They were mostly from the Essex Regiment. I am sure that it was Fred Tilston's attitude of caring for his men that is etched in my memory. He insisted that we treat all others before attending him as he weaved in and out of consciousness. Capt. Murphy, our unit R.C. Padre, who was a much respected Chaplain, arrived to attend to the wounded. Even though Fred's distress was most severe, his exemplary quality of leadership and concern for his men was evident. Recognizing this, Capt. Murphy said "this man is one of mine — let me comfort him until you can attend to him". He did so and Fred quieted until it was his turn to have his wounds dressed. The demonstration of a man's faith, a Chaplain Ministry and God's care unquestionaby contributed to his eventual survival. His care and treatment at Field Ambulance completed, Fred was loaded into a transport ambulance and evacuated. He disappeared into the night and into Military and Canadian History. Dr. D. R. Clark "Despite his natural modesty, Fred was a very proud Canadian. He knew his country was less a matter of victories and more the consequence of decent people coming together around a good cause. One wishes that millions of our young people could have been touched by Fred and his advocacy of Canada as a nation whose unity was won and could only be held through diversity". Douglas Fisher Legion Magazine St. Andrews . . . The Library Never Closes The students of St. Andrew's College are the beneficiaries of the most advanced educational networks in Canada. There are over two hundred individual workstations on campus. The school supplies one hundred of these machines. Yet, without the network to tie all of the workstations together, they would be an information archipelago - isolated islands. Instead, what we have at S.A.C. is a growing and diverse information culture. After all, we are not just connecting machines, we are connecting people. We feel it is important to use industry standard hardware and software. Our network software? Novell Netware 3.11. Our wordprocessor? WordPerfect 5.1. Our programming language of choice? Turbo C++ 3.0. Our laser printers? Hewlett Packard LaserJets. Our 30 new workstations? Dell 486P/33s. These names may or may not mean anything to you, but to our students it means that they can walk into virtually any university or office on the continent and be productive from the outset. Providing students with this edge is important to us. "So my son can work on the network from his residence room?" Yes. Every residence room in the upper school has network jacks for each of the boys living in that room. This means that your son will not need his own copy of WordPerfect, for example, he simply uses the network copy. It also means that during study he can complete an essay for history class, print it on the LaserJet in the library, and then pick it up when study is over. If your son is a day student, he can 'dial in' using a modem to the SAC ENIGMA bulletin board, join a conference and read what other people have to say about a particular topic, and even contribute to the conference himself. An upgrade planned for the summer of 1993 will allow day students to access the network directly from home and essentially enjoy the same computer environment as our boarders. Our library never closes! CD-ROMs have the potential to revolutionize the traditional library. A CD-ROM is similar to an audio compact disc except that it stores data instead of music. Each CD- ROM has enough storage capacity to contain the entire World Book Encyclopedia. Many schools now have individual CD-ROM workstations in their libraries offering easy access to the equivalent of shelves and shelves of books. However, because these CD-ROMs are connected to individual workstations, only one student can access the information at a time. Clearly, the advantage here is not as great as it could be. At S.A.C our CD-ROMs are connected to the network so that everyone in the grade 10 Geography class, for instance, can be researching map projection techniques in the World Book Encyclopedia at the same time! Furthermore, because our network operates 24 hours a day, students and teachers can do research at any time convenient to them - you can see why our library never closes. The Information Culture at S.A.C. The use of the computerized mail system at S.A.C. is an excellent example of our information culture. The mail system allows teachers to remind and notify their students of upcoming events; students submit homework over the network using the mail system; students working on group projects can conveniently communicate with their partners outside the class. The network, in fact, makes the whole idea of group work and partnership more interesting and viable. Students are learning a new way to experience community which complements our academic, sports, and extra- curricular programs. G. Dotninato Quit Ye Like Men . . . Iain MacKinnon '75 Dear Jim, This is my story. The first six years, from 1976 until 1982, were like a long ping pong game until I got a firm diagnosis of MS. It was in the summer of my first year at McMaster. One day I started to see double so I made an appointment to have my eyes checked. My doctor showed me a model of a brain and explained that I may have Multiple Sclerosis (MS). "There is no cure. It may go away on its own; however, don't change your lifestyle." I graduated from University in 1978 with a B.A. in Economics and in 1979 married the woman who gave me support and courage when the MS first attacked. We moved to Calgary where I got a job with Canadian Superior Oil, an ambitious job at a time when the whole industry was ambitious. I soon rose to customer service supervisor overseeing four hundred rail tank cars carrying liquid petroleum gas throughout North America. Calgary General Hospital has a Multiple Sclerosis Clinic where I learned MS is common and there was lots of reading material available — I was like a kid in a candy store! The simplest way to explain MS is to think of an electric cord with frayed insulation exposing wires and creating a short. In the nervous system, the 'insulation' or coating, called myelin sheath, breaks down and impulses cannot be transmitted to the brain. In the summer of 1981, we decided to move back to Ontario. We chose Waterloo where my wife got a job teaching sign language with the Waterloo County School Board. Although I was unemployed, I didn't expect to have much of a problem. The Waterloo Chapter of the MS Society has monthly meetings, so I went to one. There were lots of people there, some with the aid of canes and wheelchairs. I kept telling myself I'd never be like that. Later that year I was invited to join the Board of Directors and was associated with them for the next five years. This was the year for my first exacerbation. I tired easily and the doctor put me in hospital for ten days. In March of 1983, 1 took a job with the Independent Living Centre (ILC) and was responsible for the administration of a twenty- member staff. It is a community- based, non-profit, non-residential organization, the first in Canada. The Canadian Rehabilitation Council for the Disabled asked me to speak about the ILC at its Annual Meeting in the summer of 1983 and my speech was subsequently published in their Annual Report. My first son was born that year. My plate was getting rather full and my body was feeling weak. It soon got to the point where I had to sit to get dressed. By the time I got to work I was ready for a rest! I stopped driving my car. Wherever I wanted to go, as long as it was within the city limits, I used Kitchener-Waterloo Parallel Transit (Project Life). It was now 1984 and, to relieve the boredom, I got my real estate licence. It was a real chore for me to climb the stairs in our four-level townhouse so we found an open- concept bungalow, an ideal house. I now needed a wheelchair. This was very hard to get used to. How I viewed myself and my perception of how others viewed me had changed. The words "you must seize the moment" came to mind. I took a computer literacy course to keep busy. That summer I got a motorized scooter because my arms were getting weak. By mid-summer, my second son, Greg, was now able to ride a little tractor. The three of us would go for a ride around the block. Ryan would lead the procession with his hike, then Greg on his tractor and Dad would bring up the rear with his scooter. I started a company, IMACK Financial Services, doing accounting and income tax preparation on the computer. I used Accpac for the accounting and Taxprep for income tax. I had another exacerbation, and was admitted to Kitchener- Waterloo Hospital for treatments. While I was there my wife and I separated. While I was with the Independent Living Centre, one of the programs started was an apartment project offering twenty-four hour attendant care for people living independently. I applied and there was a vacancy. When I was with the ILC, I never thought I would require their services. I wanted to build on the close relationship I had with (photo: Kitchener-Waterloo Record) Iain MacKinnon '75 was featured in the Kitchener -Waterloo Record demonstrating a page turner device from Next Page. His chair is controlled by a chin cup as shown above. my boys. I did the best I could by talking with them daily on the phone and seeing them weekly. When they were of age to play soccer, I went to watch. It didn't bother them that their Dad was in a wheelchair, as long as I made an effort to come and see them. After my wife and I were divorced in 1987, my focus was more on my business. By 1988 it had grown 345% and that was the year the Region of Waterloo Employer of The Year Committee presented IMACK Financial Services with an Employment Equity Award for hiring persons with disabilities. But now it was getting difficult to use my upper extremities for such things as using the phone, the keyboard or hugging my boys. I soon became a quadraplegic and stopped doing the tax portion of my business, cut back on the accounting and hired a person to input data in the computer. Since my computer was collecting dust and I was unable to use my manual wheelchair comfortably, I was assessed to find an appropriate wheelchair. The chair that was decided upon is operated by two batteries and a micro computer and controlled by a chin cup. Now came the task of using the computer. After a long period, a device called "sip and puff" was decided upon. Every function on the keyboard is created using morse code. The program is called EZ MORSE and it's user friendly. It's great — I now can express myself and use my computer which sat idle for too long. My occupational therapist had me try a page turner from Next Page. It does everything your hands do to turn a page. A door has been reopened — I am grateful for today's technology! I have had people ask me if there is any pain with MS and I replied "No". After taking some time to reflect on my answer, I would say there is. It may not be physical pain, but it hurts when I can't hug my boys. Sincerely, Iain MacKinnon '75 10 Software Innovations Dan Davis '75 Ironwood seems an unlikely name for a computer systems outfit. But, partner Dan Davis says, while clearing some ironwood trees, he discovered that the wood is both hard and flexible and decided "ironwood" was the perfect name for his fledgling software company. Davis started Ironwood Computer Systems Inc. in 1979 after a private client wooed him away from the computer firm he was working for. He bankrolled the operation with a $500 draw on a credit card. His assignment was to organize the client's inventory. Out of this evolved Forms Inventory Controls System (FIX), a unique modular software program designed for warehouses and operations that distribute items such as office forms, supplies, manuals and sales literature. Since then the company has been self-financed, and Davis' client list has grown to include Prudential Insurance, Aetna Canada, National Trust, Sears, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Manufacturers Life. Sales are expected at $500,000 this year. FIX helps companies keep a handle on what Davis calls "inside consumables". If you need new glue sticks, Davis explains, FIX allows you to know immediately the number on hand, the supplier and the cost per unit. The system produces an order on the screen, fills out a bill of lading and sends the order (electronically) to the vendor. Looking South: Dan Davis and his wife and partner Tammy say 40 per cent of their clients are now in the United States. They sell software systems that allow companies to keep track of inventories. FIX also helps keep tight control on the use and wastage of business forms. "It's staggering how much it costs to fill up a filing cabinet with forms", says Davis. There are 3,500 business form distributors in North America generating $7 billion annually, and industry statistics show that $2 billion worth of forms are wasted each year. According to Davis, 6 percent of corporate expenditures goes on business forms. "One of the features of our system is that it tracks what is destroyed and helps identify paper wastage problems", says Davis. "If we can trim waste by 10 percent for a company, that's a big deal." Davis says that Prudential Insurance, in Scarborough, for example, has 65,000 square feet for form storage and has run out of space. Ironwood is helping this company minimize its storage problem. Arleen Heeley, prints service consultant at Prudential, says that before they bought FIX, they did all re-ordering and inventory control manually. "We are now able to satisfy supply orders in five days instead of two weeks. All the information we need is up on the screen, saving us time", she says. FIX is a modular system. A basic program retails for $3,000, but Davis says clients spend an average of $20,000 on network solutions. According to Davis, his Mississauga company is also making inroads into the American market. Some 40 percent of his clients are south of the border. "We are six months away from doubling our business in the U.S. These new deals will dwarf our Canadian business", says Davis. Ironwood now has an '800' number and plans to open an office in Buffalo to comfort Americans who are nervous about doing business with foreigners. One of the beauties of the software business, according to Davis, is that there are no export restrictions and thus lots of opportunity internationally. "Millions of dollars worth of information flies back and forth across the border and the authorities haven't yet figured out how to tax it", says Davis. by Donna Jean MacKinnon TORONTO STAR Reprinted with permission from The Toronto Star 11 School News STAFF NEWS Gillian Foster The first year of the Spanish renaissance continues to flourish under the capable guidance of Ms. Gillian Foster who joined the staff of St. Andrew's in September 1992.

She is an A.R.C.T, and graduated first in her class from the Artist and Licentiate Diploma Course at U. of T. She has extensive experience in teaching both in schools and individual instrumentalists. Her students and her colleagues are learning to appreciate her knowledge, skills, experience and enthusiasm. P.Day THE DREAM AT S.A.C. This year's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream — Shakespeare's enchanting comedy of magic, mistaken identity, reconciliation and self -discovery — ran from October 28th through the 31st in Ketchum Auditorium. The experience of producing a Shakespearean play at St. Andrew's each autumn has come more and more to mean a sharing, not simply of a specific performance or production, but more specifically an obligation to provide our students with a chance to learn and grow, an opportunity to learn to distinguish between the universal truths of classical theatre and the opinion that so often passes for truth among writers of lesser insight. We have been fortunate in having the service of leading professionals from the Stratford Festival, Shaw Festival and the Royal Shakespeare Company. For this production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by S.A.C. drama master William Scoular, the cast wore costumes by Stratford designer Desmond Heeley, choreography was by John Broome (who choreographed the dances in the famous Peter Brook production at the Royal Shakespeare Company), and was scored by Allan Laing from the Stratford Festival. Stratford's fight director, John Stead, choreographed the fights, Ned Vukovic from the Royal Shakespeare Company was the vocal coach and Carolyn Horley from the Stratford props department supervised our boys in the making of props for the production. Matthew Flawn and Len Luciani from the Shaw Festival trained our light, sound and stage crews. There are few, if any, schools in the world where leading artists of this stature offer such encouragement and hands-on assistance to boys who may never before have spoken a line onstage, built a prop or operated lights or sound. Seeing it in operation is a profound lesson for young people. Focus!

In June 1992, he joined McKinsey & Company, an international consulting firm in Toronto. Paul is married to Elizabeth Jarvis. 14 Looking Back 25 Years Ago In 1967, Canada marked the Centennial of Confederation, and it was common practice to have a 'Centennial Project'. St. Andrew's was no exception. The boys at the School in 1967 staged a Bazaar and Fun Fair on May 13. It was a resounding success. The Bazaar consisted of numerous ways to raise funds featuring money wheels and games of chance. The most popular booth was 'Soak The Masters'. With enough skill you could trigger buckets of ice cold water which soaked the faculty member. Other fund raisers were an auction, pony rides, trail rides and a car wash. The Centennial Project raised $3000 to furnish a young people's convalescent lounge at York County Hospital in Newmarket. The target was reached by a substantial margin. In 1967, Simon Hally of Aurora, in addition to winning an Ontario Scholarship, was awarded the Geoffrey P.E. Clarkson Scholarship to the University of Toronto and the Pat Strathy Memorial Scholarship at Trinity College, U. of T. William Chapman finished third in the Winston Churchill Medal - a communications competition open to all independent schools and sponsored by H.N.R. Jackman, Esq. (Mr. ]ackman is now Lt. Governor of Ontario and father of Duncan jackman '85.) 40 Years Ago From the 1952 Review. "... we have learned of perhaps one of the greatest achievements by an Andrean. It is 15 Looking Back the appointment of the Right Honourable Vincent Massey, C.H., to be Governor General of Canada. Mr. Massey was the first Canadian to be appointed Governor General. In 1902, Charles Vincent Massey, at sixteen years of age, entered St. Andrew's as student number 221. In the last fifty years Mr. Massey has become not only one of the School's most distinguished Old Boys, but one of the truly great men of Canada. While at St. Andrew's he was one of the editors of The Review and contributed many articles and poems to it. He was one of the officers of the first Cadet Corps in 1906. He was a good hard- working student." Mr. Massey was a statesman, diplomat, businessman, teacher and philanthropist. He spent his life in the service of his country and was one of Canada's finest Governors General. After a brilliant career in public life he died in 1967. 50 Years Ago 1942 found the School in time of war. The effect on the boys did not seem to be as great as during the First World War, but by the end, 43 Old Boys had been killed. For the duration of the war, the kilt and red tunic of The Cadet Corps were replaced by an outfit which was extremely practical and more suited to war time. The new uniform was a glengarry, Gordon tartan tie, khaki shirt, brown belt, khaki shorts, khaki stockings, red flashes and black shoes. The band and the officers continued to wear the kilt and tunic. This uniform was worn until 1948. Ten years after retirement from St. Andrew's, Stan Macfarlane enjoys visiting with Old Boys, (l-r) David Dunlav '56 and 1950 classmates Chris Wansbrough, Douglas Worling and Roy McMurtry. 75 Years Ago 1917 was a grim year for St. Andrew's. The First World War was at its height with no visible end to the conflict. The Allied death toll was mounting and with each new report there were names of S.A.C. Old Boys. By the end of 1917, 54 Old Boys had been killed, 117 wounded, and 9 taken prisoner or missing. 17 masters and 521 boys had enlisted. By the end of the war 106 Old Boys were dead. While overseas, the Andrean soldiers and officers received copies of The Review. In the 1917 Easter edition an Old Boy writes, "... one day when I was having a scrap with six Huns, I got a bullet through my clothes and partly through my cigarette case and it went through my card, so I thought you might like to have it as a small memento. I have my old S.A.C. football sweater here, and it has a few holes in it that did not come from Rugby". On December 6th there was a dinner for Old Boys returned from the front. One of the boys was Ed Whitaker. Ed was eighteen at the time. Two years earlier he had been captain of the St. Andrew's College First Rugby Team, the youngest football captain to head a team in the Little Big Four. Ed returned to St. Andrew's having had both legs amputated as a result of war injuries. D. G. Worling '50 Sandy Cantley (left) and Rod Mossman battle in the 1948 Senior (135 lbs!) final. Mr. Goodman (S.A.C. 1919-50) is at the far right. Each year the boxing ring was assembled in the gym, and under the watchful eyes of three judges the boys fought three rounds of three minutes each. S.A.C. Archives 16 Looking Back in The Review Mr. Goodman 1919-50 In 1919, Mr. Goodman succeeded Mr. Carmichael as Science Master at St. Andrew's College. The School was at that time in its twentieth year, and since the buildings in Rosedale had been expropriated by the Government for a military hospital, St. Andrew's was housed temporarily in Knox College on the University of Toronto campus. Success had come early to the young enterprise and the next few years were to be full of episode and adventure. Mr. Goodman's arrival marked the beginning of a new era. In the previous years there had been numerous science masters, some of them of outstanding scholarship and ability, but none of them had been willing to cast in his lot permanently with the School. St. Andrew's thrived beyond all expectations in the new and beautiful Knox College buildings and the attendance soon rose to capacity. Mrs. Goodman, who was in England with the children, decided after a few months' experience that prospects were promising and she joined her husband in Canada. The young master began to plan for the future and for greater efficiency in his department. In 1920 the School returned to its building in Rosedale where there was a laboratory of sorts. Plans were being made, however, for removal to Aurora where the new buildings would contain enlarged facilities for the teaching of Science. Mr. Goodman had H. E. Goodman, B. Sc. Science S.A.C. 1919-1950 received his training at the University of London, an institution founded early in the nineteenth century by a group of educational reformers with a strong modern outlook. The University of London imposed no restrictions of creed or class and laid special emphasis upon the teaching of science, both practical and theoretical. From this course spread a gradual revolution in popular education in England. A new emphasis was laid on the necessity of scientific training in medicine and industry if England was to keep her place in the modern world — a lesson which Canada was not slow to learn. A Devonshire man by birth, born and brought up in the famous port of Plymouth, Mr. Goodman brought with him his beautiful country's traditions of clotted-cream and Lorna Doone. He remained a reader of English history, and, as he rooted himself in Canada, of Canadian history as well. A love of English literature made him insist upon correct English in the discussion of scientific phenomena. In his teaching Mr. Goodman was unremitting in his attention to detail; his pupils with few exceptions were uniformly successful. In another field Mr. Goodman rendered a notable service to St. Andrew's. Soon after his arrival, closely associated with our much loved Harry Davis, he became the champion of cricket and the centre around which the supporters of that classic game rallied. He supported cricket as ardently as he advocated the utility of science. He enjoyed many triumphs with wonderful exploits of batsmen, bowlers and nimble fielders. Many generations of Andreans will cherish memories of Mr. Goodman's kindness and sincere interest in their welfare. Doubtless many will remember with surprise and much gratitude the ease with which they passed Senior Matric Chemistry! Above all Mr. Goodman will be remembered for the loyalty and affection he showed for his School in the many years he was with St. Andrew's. Percy f. Robinson SA.C. (1899-1946) THE REVIEW 1950 17 Looking Back . . . Cyrille Joseph Laurin, S.A.C. 1922-27 Cyrille Laurin and his wife Elaine. Cyrille Laurin, O.B.E., Bailiff Grand Cross, Order of St. John, mentioned in dispatches, 1940-45, recipient of Centennial and Jubilee medals for valuable service to the nation, and the Canadian Life Style Award and the Boy Scout Medal of Merit, came to St. Andrew's when he was ten and the School was located in Rosedale. Cyrille continued as a day boy when St. Andrew's moved to Aurora. "Every morning I would take the York Radial Streetcar up to the School and then back down in the afternoon. By the time I got home to Toronto I would have my homework done", he said recently. He also remembers when the Cadet Corps travelled to Aurora from Toronto by train to participate in the laying of the cornerstone for the new buildings. The Corps marched from Aurora to the School on the newly paved Yonge Street. "It was a blistering hot day and the heat coming up from the pavement, up our kilts, was unforgettable." Anxious to get into university, he made a deal with Mrs. Waugh at St. Clement's School. He would not smoke or drink and she would prepare him for university! The first year he got his Junior Matriculation and the second, his Senior. That fall he enrolled at the University of Toronto at age seventeen. At University he joined the C.O.T.C. and after graduation joined Maclean Hunter Limited in Montreal. During this time he was active in the Militia and when World War II broke out he joined the Canadian Grenadier Guards as Adjutant. He held a variety of appointments overseas, returning to Canada in 1945 to serve as Deputy Adjutant General at National Headquarters, retiring in 1946 with the rank of Brigadier General. Following the war he rejoined Maclean Hunter in Toronto. In 1949 he was elected to the Board of Directors in charge of all Maclean Hunter consumer magazines. He was later appointed Vice-President and in 1964, Director of the Financial Post Division and Publisher of the Financial Post. He retired in 1968. Cyrille was largely responsible for the appointment of the Royal Commission on Publications and represented Canadian publications at hearings across Canada. He served as Chairman of the Markham Township Planning Board and later was Chairman of the Metro Toronto Planning Board. He was a Commissioner on the Metric Commission, Canada, for nine years. He is a Past President of the Ontario Council of St. John Ambulance, past Director of St. John Ambulance Association at the Priory of Canada and, after completing a three-year term as Vice-Chancellor, was elected Chancellor for Canada, 1978 to 1981. In 1978 the Order of St. John awarded Cyrille's wife Elaine the rank of Officer of St. John and she was made a Commander in 1982 for her tireless volunteer work. Today they spend their winters in Florida and summers in Toronto and enjoy an occasional game of golf. W. /. Herder 18 Looking Back . . . John Alexander Douglas McCurdy '03 On a cold winter day eighty- three years ago, John McCurdy taxied his bi-plane, the Silver Dart, over the frozen surface of Bras d'Or Lake near Baddeck, Nova Scotia. With full throttle, the graceful craft, on delicate bicycle wheels, lifted off the ice and flew over half a mile. History was made. Aviation in Canada was born! John A.D. McCurdy made his historic flight that day in 1909 and became the first British subject to make a controlled flight in an airplane. A month later he flew the Silver Dart on a circular course over a distance of twenty miles — quite a feat for those days! The historic, non-stop, trans- Atlantic flight from Newfoundland to Ireland by John Alcock and Arthur Brown came ten years later. John McCurdy attended St. Andrew's College during its early days in Toronto. Following S.A.C., he went to the University of Toronto, graduating with a Master of Engineering degree in 1907. He spent the following summer at Baddeck where he renewed his friendship with Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, who had been conducting flying experiments with kites. That summer, the Aerial Experiment Association was created by Bell, McCurdy, Casey Baldwin, a friend from university, and Glenn Curtiss, an American who was a designer of gasoline- driven engines. The United States Government thought so highly of the new organization that they asked if U.S. Army Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge could join the group as an observer. The A.E.A. (l-r) Casey Baldwin, Thomas Selfridge, Glenn Curtiss, Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, John McCurdy and Augustus Post of the Aero Club of America built several planes and most of the experimentation took place in New York State, the location of Curtiss's machine shop. After the Aerial Experiment Association was disbanded, McCurdy and Baldwin remained partners. They had little success in trying to convince the Canadian Government of the military value of airplanes. Baldwin concentrated on the theoretical aspects of flying, but McCurdy continued to fly. Along the way he achieved several firsts: - he was the first person to send a wireless message from a plane to the ground; - first to fly a figure eight; - he set the record for the longest flight over the sea from Key West, Florida, to Havana, Cuba; - he flew the world's first flying boat; - he won the world's biplane speed record at Belmont Park, New York, in 1910. In 1916 John retired from active flying due to problems with his vision. John McCurdy opened the Curtiss Aviation School in 1915, with help from the British Government. More than six hundred Canadians were trained 19 Looking Back . . . John Alexander Douglas McCurdy '03 here for service in the Royal Naval Air Force. One of the original students was Philip C. Garratt, S.A.C. '09. Philip, while later working for the De Havilland Aircraft Company, won the McKee Trophy, awarded for 'Outstanding Achievement in the field of Aerospace Operations' in 1951 and again in 1966. McCurdy also managed Curtiss Aeroplanes & Motors, Limited, which manufactured two-seater training planes. In 1928 John McCurdy formed Reed Aircraft Company with a plant in Montreal. Later his company merged to form Curtiss- Reed Aircraft Limited of which he became president. At the outbreak of the Second World War he resigned to become Assistant Director-General of aircraft production in Ottawa. After the war he became President of Montreal Aircraft Industries, Ltd., Montreal. In 1947, at age 61, he was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia. John McCurdy was active in the aircraft and aviation industry all his life. He was honoured in 1953 when the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute created the McCurdy Award for outstanding achievement in science and engineering relating to aeronautics and space research' and again in 1959 when he was awarded the McKee Trophy, the most prestigious aviation award in Canada. In 1961, Jack T. Dyment '24, another distinguished Old Boy won the McCurdy medal. McCurdy and his wife Margaret were married in 1919 and they had one son, J.R.D. McCurdy, and a daughter, Mrs. Philip Haddon. The Honourable John Alexander Douglas McCurdy, D.Cn.L., M.B.E., M.E., D. Eng., LL.D., Honorary F.C.A.I., died June 25, 1961, in Montreal. D. G.

Following St. Andrew's, Joe went to the University of Toronto and was one of thirty-five students who founded the humour magazine The Goblin. The magazine achieved a quality equal to any publication of its kind including the emerging New Yorker. Joe served as editor-in-chief for ten years until the magazine ceased publishing during the depression. In a career spanning over seventy years, Joe wrote for numerous advertising agencies and publications. He was still writing for the Senior Times when he was ninety. His daughter Judith wrote us that "her father always had warm memories of St. Andrew's — in fact, he used those memories for several of his columns over the years." He is survived by his daughters Linda Margaret and Judith McDougall- Sym, son William Graham and seven grandchildren. A. Macdonald Robertson '20 A. Macdonald Robertson died in Calgary, Alberta, in October 1992. Don was born in Calgary, N.W.T. in 1900, the son of a Calgary merchant. His father and R.B. Bennett set up a clothing store to outfit miners and new settlers. Don was educated in Calgary and came to St. Andrew's to complete his high school education. He studied mining enginereering at McGill where he met and married Yvonne Thompson. They returned to Calgary in 1923, where they raised seven children. Don spent a fascinating life as a pioneer. He mined gold in North Dakota and Idaho 24 Old Boys' News and was involved in the early development of the petroleum industry in Alberta. He was responsible for bringing the first cracking plant (used to produce gasoline from natural gas) to Alberta from Texas. During World War II he was involved in the restaurant and food distribution industry. From the end of the war until 1962, Don was in the clothing business. Yvonne and Don were great lovers of antiques. Fortunately for the Alberta Government, they purchased a number of items sold at auction in 1942 when Government House was released for use as a Veterans Hospital. These treasured items have remained in their possession and many will now be returned to the Province of Alberta by the Robertson family. Don was a generous man, helping friends and family alike. He made it possible or his son Gordon '55 and his grandson Alex Macdonald '80 to attend St. Andrew's College. Don's last years were spent in retirement in his beloved Calgary. His wife Yvonne died in 1980 Dr. Ross Robertson died January 4, 1993, at his home in West Vancouver, B.C.

Barber died November 8, 1992, in Waterloo, Ontario. He attended St. Andrew's from 1925-1927. Albert S. Barber Bert, known as "the father of co-op education in Canada", was the University of Waterloo's first Director of Co- ordination — the title used in the university's early decades for what's now the co-op education department. He held that job from 1958 to 1972, and during those years was responsible for more than 100,000 work-term placements. In 1972 Bert stepped down to take the less demanding job of Director of Career Planning and Placement; he retired in 1975. Born in Burks Falls, Ontario, Bert attended the University of Toronto and the General Motors Institute of Technology in Flint, Michigan, where he was a co-op student in industrial engineering. Bert subsequently spent twenty-four years with General Motors and then Union Carbide in 25 Old Boys' News managerial positions involving sales, engineering, manufacturing and industrial relations. "Without doubt, Bert Barber counts as one of the founding fathers of the University of Waterloo," said Dr. Doug Wright, Dean of Engineering in the early years and now UW's President. Bert is remembered through the award each year of the Albert Sherwood Barber Medal, for "the student graduating with the most outstanding performance in the co-operative education aspects of the under- graduate engineering program". Bert is survived by his second wife, Marjorie, son Dr. Albert Barber '56 and daughters Marcia Cole and Susan Stampe. Millard Cornell died July 9, 1992, in Toronto, Ontario. Frank W.

I'm visiting the home of Carlos Giraldo '28 whose name I read in last spring's Andrean, inviting Old Boys visiting Colombia to his ranch in Monteria. On my way south, I took him up on his offer, and, along with my British travelling companion, enjoyed a week's hospitality with Don Carlos and his gracious family.

Don Carlos regaled us with tales of his fascinating life at St. Andrew's; as an English teacher in the Hollinger Gold Mines in Timmins; as a champion boxer; as an employee of the petroleum companies which blazed pipelines through the jungles of Northern Colombia. All of this many years before I was born. The highlight of these stories came when a photo album was produced with an amazing number of pictures from S.A.C. in the twenties. Among these were shots of Prof. Goodman, a favourite teacher, as well as a photo at the family home of foe Dunkelman S.A.C. 1925-28 and one of Bert Maura '27, who must be related to my friend Chris Maura! Boxing was a sport very much in evidence during this period, and Don Carlos made many references to black eyes given and received both in and out of the ring. He even told of a football game against U.C.C. where he had to be carried from the field and enquired if that rivalry is still strong. I'd like to thank Sr. Giraldo and his kind family for their warm welcome and generous assistance. Thanks also to Sandra Scott in your office for helping put me in touch with my 'Colombian connection'. Best wishes from the sub-continent!
