NOTES The School closed on Saturday, June 12th. The Closing Ceremonies took a somewhat different form from that followed in previous years in that the Leaving Service and the Prize Giving were preceded, in the morning, by the Ceremonial Cadet Parade, the cadets having returned the previous day from Camp Petawawa. Details of the ceremonies and an account of the activities at Camp Petawawa appear later in this journal. At the Prize Giving the Headmaster announced the award of Ontario Scholarships to Steven Whitwill, Stephen Went, Robert Halupka and Charles Schofield. All members of Grade 13 had received their Secondary School Honour Graduation Diploma. The Stephen Clifford Memorial Prize was presented for the first time by Mr. John Clifford to the boy in the Junior School who had won most points for his house. This prize has been given by Mr. and Mrs. John Clifford in memory of their son. Stephen, who was a Monitor in Grade 8 in 1969-70. We are grateful to the E. R. Fisher Co. Ltd. for the donation of a Bursary. There have been several developments on the academic side. The academic Staff has inaugurated a Scholarship. The decision of the provincial Depart- ment of Education to change the requirements for Grade 13 as of September 1971 gave the School the opportunity to remodel its curriculum. The range of subjects for Grade 13 has been increased and these subjects set in such a way that almost any combination of them can be accommodated. Furthermore, the curricula for Grades 9 to 12 have been broadened, and the School now offers, in addition to all the previous subjects, courses in German, the three Sciences ( on a much wider scale). Geology and Commerce, with several alternatives in each grade, so that the boys may take courses suited to both their future needs and present intellectual interests and abilities. Owing to increased numbers of students and new course requirements, two temporary classrooms are being added for use until new plans permit more permanent arrangements. In September Mr. Marland and Mr. Josselyn took a party of over thirty boys from both the Senior and Junior Schools on a highly successful visit to Upper Canada Village. On 24th September Mr. George Vincent visited the School to give an illustrated lecture on South America. Mr. Vincent was wartime Head of the Canadian section of the British Ministry of Information and. later, Informa- tion Adviser to the British High Commissioner in Canada. As part of the History programme for Grades 12 and 13, speakers from embassies in Ottawa were invited to address the classes and answer questions. Many interesting and often heated discussions followed. The following em- bassies sent representatives: the People's Republic of China. West Germany. India. South Africa, the United Arab Republic, the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. In addition we also entertained speakers from Carleton University, the United Nations Association, the Department of Indian Affairs and the Department of External Affairs. The School received a brief but welcome visit from the Canadian Centen- nial Choir under the direction of Mr. Nicholas Goldschmidt; Mr. Geoffrey Thomson was the accompanist. On the last Sunday and Monday of the Fall term the two traditional Carol Services were held — one for the School and one for visitors: both were very well attended. Members of the College community read the nine lessons and the Choir gave a good account of itself under the direction of Mr. Geoffrey Thomson. On the last day of the Winter term we repeated the Winter Sports Day introduced two years ago. Some four bus-loads of boys went to various loca- tions: Camp Fortune and Mont Ste. Marie for skiing and to the Y.M.C.A. centre for tobogganing. The day concluded with the Annual Sports Dinner held at the School, at which the guest speaker was Mr. Harry Kerrison, executive director of the Canadian Track and Field Association. A list of Athletic Awards appears in the Sports section of the Ashburian. On 12th May Ashbury held a Visitor's Day. Parents and other guests were able to see the School in action, both in the classroom and on the games field. This was well attended and can be accounted a great success. After the final performance of the Ashbury-Elmwood production of "The Pirates of Penzance" the cast, musical and stage staff were entertained by Dr. and Mrs. Conway, whom we thank for their hospitality. During the year several visits were made to the Theatre of the National Arts Centre; an account of these visits appears later in these pages. Mr. V. J. Burczak, Mr. C. J. Inns, Mr. F. T. Jones, Mr. G. J. McGuire and Mr. B. Wallin joined the academic staff in September. Mr. F. K. Graham has been assisting with the Chapel music and giving individual music tuition. In September 1971 Mr. G. W. Thomson relinquishes the Chapel and Class Music to Mr. Graham; Mr. Thomson will continue as Housemaster of Con- naught House; he will also continue to teach French and will take on the additional commitments of Music and Drama at Elmwood. For the Winter and Spring terms Simon Peacock, late of Tonbridge School. England, was attached to the School as tutor in the Science and Mathematics Departments. We hope that he enjoyed his stay with us, thank him for his effective help and wish him well in the future. No member of the academic staff is leaving this summer, but regretfully we lose Mrs. D. Gwynne-Timothy, Senior School Matron since September 1968, who leaves us with our best wishes for her happiness on the occasion of her marriage to Mr. William Thompson. An appreciation of Mrs. Gwynne- Timothy appears on a later page. Ashbury College is now clearly identified by a sign hanging in front of the School on Mariposa Avenue. This sign is the gift of the Graduating Class of 1970. MRS D. GWYNNE-TIMOTHY "She's as Canadian as maple syrup!" This was the description given of Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy in reply to one of several questions asked by a very interested party when her appointment as Senior School Matron was announced just over three years ago. The description was entirely accurate, despite her long and happy marriage to an Englishman! She came to us thoroughly well versed in the complex pattern of boarding- school life, her late husband having been a member of the staff of T.C.S. for a great many years. The knowledge and wisdom she gained with him there meant that she knew better than to rush her fences, and she eased herself into the job here with tact and reticence. As a result of this, it may have taken some of us a little while to get to know her and appreciate her full worth — but it was only a very little while. The personal needs of boys and resident staff were her constant concern, and nothing was too much trouble for her — provided (and rightly so) she was approached with due courtesy and consideration. She never seemed to need rest or sleep: she might have been up half the night taking a boy to hospital or tending a sick housemaster, and yet be at the routine chores of linen room supervision at 7.30 a.m., as fresh as if she'd had the statutory eight hours. She chose her staff well — and, having chosen them, she kept them: they showed no inclination to leave — what they did show (and hope- fully will go on showing) was loyalty and zeal comparable with Mrs. G-T's own. Now. after three years of selfless service, she leaves us to marry again. When the news was made public, we were unanimous in our joy and happiness for her — but we suddenly realised just how much she had done for us in her unassuming way. and how much we were going to miss her. By the time these words appear in print, she will have been Mrs. Bill Thompson for some time, and perhaps the most fitting way of ending this little tribute would be to repeat what a namesake of Bill's said at the Con- naught House dinner in June: "If she looks after him as well as she's looked after us. hell be spoilt to death!" G.W.T. CONNAUGHT HOUSE NOTES What a fast year the 1970-71 school year was! In fact I wouldn't be surprised if we'd skipped a few months somewhere. I guess the fact that it did go by so quickly was an indication that it was a good year. Never before have competitions been so hard fought and so evenly matched. In fact whenever the houses locked heads, the margin of victory proved to be very slim indeed. Two excellent examples of this great competitive spirit were the swim meet where Woollcombe beat us by a very small margin (a mere two points), and a house softball game where our last innings come-back was too much for Woollcombe to handle (final score 14-13). On the School sports field Connaught House boys were very active. We were well represented on the 1st Football by Anapolsky I. Wilansky. Luciani I. Smith I. Graham. Stiles. Boyd. Charron. Clubb. Heaney. Macdonald. Morrison and Schofield. with Stratton as manager. Webster. Cunningham, Croal. Pimm. Pryde. Scott. Tanos and Ross played 2nd Football. The School's very successful 1st Soccer Team consisted mainly of Con- naught talent — Hallett (captain), Harlley (vice-captain), Went, Jokinen, Halupka, Barnes, Luciani II, Schwarzmann, Bennett, Macleod II and Yaxley II, with McLellan as the reliable manager. Lackie (captain), Anapolsky II, Mangifesta, Dickson, Cahn, Jelenick, Johnston and Wilson made up most of the second team. In the winter it was hockey, with Hallett (captain), Smith I, Graham. Boyd, Morrison, Pimm, Pryde and Yaxley II representing Connaught on the 1st team. On the seconds we had the Anapolsky brothers, Luciani II, (captain), Webster, Veilleux, Mangifesta, Cahn, Croal, Jelenick, Johnston, Scott — and the worthy manager, Bonneau. We provided the Ski Team with Stratton (captain), Lackie and Hart, while three-quarters of the Curling Team was from Connaught — Schofield (captain), Kenny (vice-captain) and Yaxley I. The Swimming Team had five Connaught members — Wilansky, Whitwill. Dickson, Schwarzmann and Harcourt. In the Spring Term the only activity was the track and field ( inter-school ) in which Connaught members did very well. Harlley was captain, and the others were Kenny, Morrison, Wilansky, Luciani I, Hallett, Barnes, McTaggart, Kerr, Pimm and Scott. Off the sports field Connaught was also tops. The Gilbert and Sullivan company which put on "The Pirates of Penzance" was recruited almost solely from Connaught House. The five leads were all Connaught — Hallett. Graham, Macdonald, Stratton and Power. We provided most of the pirate- like fellows in the chorus — Stiles, Kenny, MacDermot, Haythornthwaite, Pearce and Jelenick. The back-stage crew was Wilansky, Luciani II, Power and Stoddard. As usual, the whole venture was under the direction of our Housemaster. The strong voice of Aboud was heard no more in the Choir after Christ- mas, and was sorely missed by the other members — Hallett, Harlley. Stratton, Dickson, Macdonald, Haythornthwaite and MacDermot. The Chapel Com- mittee contained Stiles (president), Hallett, Harlley and Stratton. Stratton was also head of the Servers' Guild, ably abetted by Cahn. Our representatives on the Dance Committee at the beginning of the year were Hallett, Harlley and Wilansky. However, the most honourable mention goes to Connell, who single-handedly organized the best Graduation Dance Ashbury has ever had. Connaught House boys monopolized the Cadet officer and N.C.O. positions, with Hallett as Major, Graham as Captain and Luciani I as C.S.M. The lieutenants were Stiles and Morrison, and the sergeants were Wilansky (staff- sergeant), Halupka, Boyd and Clubb. Went was sergeant of the Honour Guard, and the Guard corporals included McTaggart, Lackie, Croal, Jelenick and Ross. Our representatives in the Band were Harlley (who received the award for the best bandsman), Power (lead drummer), Anapolsky I, MacDermot, Wright and Bennett. The Public Speaking contest was won by Graham, and Boyd came second. Tanos took second place for the intermediates. A semi-quiet atmosphere was sometimes achieved by Hallett ( Head ol House) and the other prefects — Graham, Stiles, Went and Harlley. The Room Captains were Halupka (senior), Stratton. Kenny, Jokinen. Luciani I and Wilansky. Things were usually more quiet under the all-seeing eye of Mr. Thomson, our Housemaster! We welcomed Mr. McGuire as Boarder House Tutor, and Mr. Niles continued to look after the Day Boys. 10 Well, this year will always be remembered by all members of the House. Certainly it was a very tumultuous year, but Connaught has weathered the storm and, if anything, come out stronger. It was a young house and its youth and vitality showed up time and time again. The atmosphere which existed was really something else, mainly because the House was so much closer than it had ever been before. There was much more rapport between those on top and those lower down the ladder, and this continually showed through. At the end of the first school year of this new decade, Connaught House looks in great shape. If it can continue on its present path of tremendously spirited participation in all activities, its future is assured. Sincerest thanks. I think from everybody, go to Mr. Thomson for a lead and for participation and interest in so many aspects of school life. A final word of encouragement — "Good Luck! 1 ' D. R. Hallett Closing Day this year was more than usually poignant for Connaught (or at least for its Housemaster! ) because we said farewell to so many fine people who have been with the House since its inception four years ago. Next year there will only be two (or, at most, three) of these "' founder-members" left. To Dell Hallett, and all other leavers who have stayed the four-year course, my very warmest thanks for all they have done and especially for the stan- dards they have bequeathed us, which have resulted in the House's present healthy condition. Fortunately those who will lead us next year are well versed in these standards, and we face the future with confidence. G.W.T. EDITOR'S NOTE The Housemaster of Connaught continued to act as music critic for The Ottawa Journal. He conducted the Canadian Centennial Choir in its Christmas concert at the National Arts Centre, and the Ottawa Civic Symphony Orchestra in its winter concert at the High School of Commerce. He has also appeared on radio (as a member of a panel of music critics in CBO's "The Music Scene" ) and on television ( in a service relayed from Trinity Anglican Church, where he is Organist and Choir Director). WOOLLCOMBE HOUSE NOTES Woollcombe House began the year under the direction of Mr. Joyce. Mr. C. J. Inns, who came to Ashbury this year from England, was appointed House Master at the beginning of the Winter term. Mr. H. Penton once again filled the post of Master in Charge of Woollcombe House Day Boys. The prefects were Charles Maclaren — Head of House — Mike Kelly, Marc Duguay and Dave McNeil. Head of Day Boys. The Room Captains were Lennie Rosenhek, Roger Ramsay, Kostas Rimsa. Jay Ronalds and Ken Hansen. This year in the inter-house games we greatly improved our record. In soccer, hockey and curling we shared the honours in each sport, each House winning one game. In a very close and exciting swimming competition Woollcombe defeated Connaught in the last event. At the Sports Dinner in March. Bruce Weiner was presented with the trophy for the Best Linesman in the football team and Mike Kelly was judged the Most Valuable Player. In skiing. Jim Cuttle was the Most Valuable Skier and Tony Seay was the best Cross-Country Skier. Mike Kell) was also the Most Valuable Plaver in the Hockey. 11 For the Cadet Inspection this year Jim Beqaj was Lieutenant Number 3 platoon; Mike Kelly was Band Major and Charles Maclaren was Lieutenant of the Guard of Honour. As the term draws to a close the last gathering of "the House" will be on June 11th at the Chateau Laurier Hotel for the House Dinner. To show our appreciation for a most rewarding year under the direction of Mr. Inns, one final Woollcombe House cheer: Give me an "I"! Give me an "N"! Give me an "N"! Give me an "S"! What have we got? "INNS". C. H. Maclaren M. P. Kelly CHAPEL NOTES Because in a small way this year's Chapel life was a little less Chaplain- dominated and a little more student-oriented I have asked students to con- tribute to this year's account of Chapel activities. Sandy Stiles, who headed our Chapel Committee, and Bill Stratton, our Chief Server, each have some- thing to say. And so do I — Thank you, Sandy and Bill, for the excellent way you each efficiently and cheerfully filled the important positions entrusted to you. We had a great Confirmation group this year about which Adrian Haythornthwaite reports. My own comments are mainly by way of expressing gratitude. The Head- master deserves thanks for his support of the Chapel. An example of this support is reflected in the $610.00 we were able to give away. By making other arrangements for the maintenance of the Chapel, Mr. Joyce has made it possible for every cent of money put on the Chapel collection plate to be used for charitable purposes. As ever Mr. Thomson rightly receives our appreciation for the skilful way he gets the best out of our organ and our choir. The congregational singing was greatly improved by the end of the year and that is a real accomplishment. Prefects, your dependability in the reading of lessons and other duties does not go unnoticed. We thank you as we thank the Servers and Committee members. There are many individuals who deserve bouquets. For example there is Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy, who took such good care of the Chapel, and Mr. Humphreys, who produced the words for "Jesus Christ - Superstar". Would the many persons who worked so hard in the Chapel please accept the thanks of the entire College. The biggest thanks of all is my personal thanks to the students for letting me be Chaplain. I very much treasure your friendship and am grateful that you treat me as a person — with all the ups and downs involved. I believe that Ashbury College has grown a little as a community of persons who respect each other and I'm glad to be part of it. Here's something to think about: "One's friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human" — George Santayana. And don't forget what Jesus said — "I call you my friends".

SERVERS' GUILD This year has hecn one of the most active for the Ashhury College Servers" Guild. Our duties varied from taking part in pre-service seminars to helping to put up loudspeakers in the Chapel for recordings. This was the first year that a 10 a.m. Holy Eucharist was held every Sundav. A thirty-minute seminar was held before each service during the first two terms. During one service, Mr. Green arranged a re-enactment of the Last Supper for the benefit of the Confirmation Class. On another occasion, during Easter, a large cross was suspended from the ceiling to help us all understand more fully the meaning of Christ's Crucifixion. Each service was conducted with a modern version of the Liturgy, which shortened the service considerably. Evensong was held each Sunday at 7.15 p.m. Lessons were read by the Headmaster and Prefects. We had many interesting speakers during the course of the year, their topics ranging from world affairs to responsibility. Two services were devoted entirely to the recording of "Jesus Christ - Super- star*", and there were several folk services, all of which offered a welcome change from the format of the regular services. Two morning services were held every Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday at 8.30 and 8.45. Lessons were read by the Prefects and Monitors. Mr. Green put us in the mood of the day with a prayer and a word of wisdom. The Friday morning services were devoted to the improvement of the student voice and an increased knowledge of hymns. The so-called sing-alongs were directed b\ Mr. Thomson, who by the end of the year had us all singing several new hymns. I would like to take this opportunity personally to thank all those who helped me serve throughout the year. Special thanks to Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy. who arranged the sacred vessels and other furnishings for the services. I sincerely hope that those members of the student body who have helped in the Chapel this year will continue to do so in the future and keep the Ashbury College Servers" Guild well-organized and active. B W. W. Stratton 13 THE CHAPEL COMMITTEE The Chaplain, the Reverend E. E. Green, has this year done much to improve our Sunday services, which have until recently been somewhat routine. He has changed the order of service occasionally and invited interest- ing speakers, who were more often than not short and to the point, affecting us more. Sometimes seven or eight boys participated in the service by reading short dialogues, so furthering our interest and involvement. Towards the end of the last term the recording of "Jesus Christ - Superstar" was played; this, I feel, was most successful in terms of holding the congregation's attention and I would like to thank the Chaplain for making that possible. Also, Mr. Thomson has added some new hymns, which again has helped the service to become more enjoyable. This year the School has been successful in raising funds for various good causes. Over S600 were given as follows: to Ottawa-Carleton United Appeal $ 50.00 for refugee work in Vietnam 30.00 for flood relief in Pakistan 100.00 to St. Michael's Mission, South Africa 200.00 to Ottawa Miles for Millions 80.00 to the Bishop of Ottawa for local charity 100.00 to the Ontario Older Boys' Parliament 50.00 The Chaplain organized a "Grub Day" for the School. The "grubbiest" student received a money prize; the 250 entrance fees went to the Kwashiorkor Home in South Africa. Mr. Green has always been friendly and helpful, which I'm sure has been much appreciated. My hearty thanks to him, and special thanks to my col- leagues of the Chapel Committee who have assisted me in my position as president. Thanks also to you out there in the congregation for your partici- pation on those Sunday evenings. Best luck to all. A. J. Stiles THE CONFIRMATION The Confirmation Service was held in the Ashbury College Chapel on the 21st of February, 1971. The Chaplain presented 15 of us to Bishop Robinson of the Diocese of Ottawa. There were nine from Ashbury and six from Elm- wood. Our First Communion involved three successive Sundays in March. We all sincerely thank Mr. Green for preparing and presenting us for the "Laying on of Hands". J. A. E. Haythornthwaite 14 ASHBURY COLLEGE LADIES' GUILD PRESIDENT'S REPORT It is a privilege for one to outline for you the activities and achievements of the Ladies' Guild for 1970/71. From the Treasurer's Report we have learned that financially it has been a very successful year. A large percentage of Mothers are paid up members and the receipts from our two major projects, the Clothing Sale and the Pyramid Luncheons, are in excess of One Thousand dollars (SI, 000). We were the recipients of some generous donations for which we are sincerely grateful. Seventy-eight packages of Hasti-Notes were sold, a large percentage being purchased by out-of-town Mothers. The usual two meetings were held. Mr. Joyce and Mr. Sherwood addressed our Fall Meeting, and at the Spring Meeting Mr. Byford and Mr. Beedell spoke to us on the Science Programme at Ashbury. Both Meetings were well attended with some eighty members present at each meeting. Following the meetings luncheon was served, courtesy of the College. At the June Closing, the Guild donated Book Prizes in the amount of Nineteen dollars and ten cents ($19.10), and Merit Prizes of Fifty dollars (S50) each for Grades 9 to 13 inclusive. The latter prizes, which replace the Bursary formerly given, are awarded on the basis of all-round effort and have been most enthusiastically received by both Students and Staff. Six cottas and a red cassock were purchased for the Choir and Mr. Thomson was given Fifty dollars ($50) to take the Choir on an Outing. The Christmas Carol Service is surely one of the highlights of the school year and the Guild was honoured as your President was asked to take part in it. At the Fall Meeting, the members voted to cash a Bond for Five Hundred dollars ( S500 ) when it matured in January and to use the money to redecorate and furnish the Infirmary Sitting Room. The room doubles as a sitting room where Parents may meet privately with their son(s) when visiting them at School. The work was completed in time for the Spring Meeting and the members were delighted with the results. The Infirmary itself was brightened with new bedspreads and curtains and new furniture was purchased for the Prefects* Common Room. The television set in the Junior Common Room was repaired and games were purchased for the Junior boarders. The Junior boys having the tidiest room were taken to a movie at our expense. At the request of Mr. Joyce that we discontinue our support in furnishing the Common Rooms, because of wilful damage to newly purchased furniture and the added responsibility it places on the Boys and the Staff, the members at the Spring Meeting voted to abolish the Common Rooms" Fund and to establish in its place the Project Fund. In accordance with this, instead of furnishing the Commons Rooms, the Meeting voted to purchase much needed equipment for the Science Department. A cheque for Twelve Hundred dollars (SI, 200) was presented to Mr. Joyce to purchase equipment that is required to update the Science Programme, namely. Microscopes and Specimens for the Biology Department, nine Optical Benches and other pieces of electrical equipment for the Physics Department and a Ph Meter for the Chemistry Department. Lastly the Guild Executive was delighted and thoroughly enjoyed co-oper- ating with the Old Boys' Association at the time of their Reunion in October. My Executive consisted of: — Honorary President — Mrs. W. A. Joyce Past President — Mrs. B. H. Chick Vice-President — Mrs. D. G. Harcourt Secretary — Mrs. W. A. Scott Treasurer — Mrs. T. L. Bates Assistant Treasurer — Mrs. E. D. Boyd Ways & Means — Mrs. L. M. Johnston Hasti-Notes — Mrs. T. C. Assaly Members — Mrs. D. D. Hogarth — Mrs. W. J. Mulock — Mrs. C. Don — Mrs. D. K. Stilborn — Mrs. G. K. Ellacott Montreal Representative — Mrs. P. H. Davies In closing I would like you to know how much I have enjoyed being your President for the past year. It has been a pleasure and an honour to serve this fine School. My most sincere thanks to all the Executive for their co- operation and for fulfilling their duties so capably. I would also like to thank Mr. Joyce and Mr. Sherwood who have assisted us in every possible way. Our gratitude is also extended to all the members of the Staff, with special thanks to the Office Staff. My sincere best wishes to my successor, Mrs. Harcourt, and her Executive. I am sure that they will enjoy the same co-operation and enthusiasm that I have experienced. Respectfully submitted, JOAN HENDERSON. Mrs. Gordon F. Henderson. President, Ashbury College Ladies' Guild. THE SOUTHAM LIBRARY The Library has had a good year, perhaps its best so far, with all kinds of activities taking place. It is a far cry from the sepulchral atmosphere of the average public library, but wc are fortunate in that our small number permits us to indulge in a freer, less restrained atmosphere than that which is neces- sary when larger groups are involved. Nevertheless, in spite of the relaxed appearance, consideration is given to those desiring quiet and, with few exceptions, it has been possible to revert lo subdued tones whenever requested. This highlights tolerance, and a willingness amongst the more exuberant to co-operate with their fellow students. 16 Perhaps because of a less rigid attitude, the Library has become more pop- ular. More people are finding their way there and certainly much greater use is being made of the books, and the variety of magazines must surely satisfy most tastes! Mention should be made of the successful stamp club held in the Library each Thursday throughout the Fall and Winter terms. A tremendous enthu- siasm was evident, and more than one onlooker became an avid collector long before the Spring term and the better weather saw other activities replace this indoor attraction. The Junior School newspaper found the Library tables useful when finally putting the paper together, and this was done in a very business-like fashion, with an efficiency which did them credit. A large stock of magazines has accumulated, and these, mostly, are reserved for those wishing to "cut out"" for various projects — very popular with Junior School! Once again many fine donations have been received, and we extend our thanks to all those listed below. Mr. W. J. R. Wilson deserves special mention and thanks for his continued support with regular monthly donations of books. An organization of Old Boys and Friends of Ashbury College in the United States contributed funds to the Library, and a set of Colliers Student Encyclo- paedia was purchased as a lasting reminder of a very generous gift. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and thanks to the members. The librarians have worked willingly and well throughout the year, and I extend my grateful thanks to them all. Mary Loftus Librarian.

Ashbury entered Hugh Christie, Robert Pimm and Mat- thew Rowlinson in the local contest sponsored by the Ottawa Optimist Club. Each of the boys did exceedingly well with Matthew winning the second place trophy. The 1972 theme is "Our Challenge — Involvement". Ashbury might well consider involvement in public speaking contests as a challenge for next year. The Optimist sponsored venture starts with local district com- petitions and ends with North American finals. David Heaney and Stephen Stirling entered the Ottawa district public speaking contest sponsored by the Ontario Public School Trustee Association and the Ontario Hydro. In the prepared speech section David came second and in the impromptu section Stephen came first. Stephen went on to win the zone final. In Toronto at the Ontario finals he competed with high school students from all over the province. Hydro arranged a tour at Niagara Falls and a banquet at Toronto's King Edward Hotel for all contestants. It was an enjoyable and worthwhile effort. In the School itself we had one of our best Public Speaking contests ever. In the Senior competition Jeffrey Graham won the Gary Horning Memorial Prize over Brian Boyd, Norman Clubb and Sean Power. Intermediate con- testants were Hugh Christie, Stuart Jelenick, Nicholas Polk, Matthew Rowlinson and Stephen Tanos. Matthew emerged as winner of the Ross McMaster Prize. Judges Leslie Barnes, James Barnett and John Charnell were very impressed by the high standards exhibited by all participants. The senior contestants mainly focused on life at Ashbury for their speeches. A good deal of sensitive awareness and mature judgement was shown in the constructive criticism they offered. Jeff Graham brought the assembly to its feet in thunderous applause. Nothing could have better demonstrated the power of the orator and the validity of stressing public speaking in Ashbury. E.E.G. THE THEATRE The School in large and small numbers made a total of twelve trips to the theatre, eleven of those to the National Arts Centre. The musical, "Half a Sixpence", staged at Lasalle Academy by The Ottawa Little Theatre, was atended by a small group in the latter half of the Winter term. A light musical comedy which enjoyed some success on Broadway, "Half a Sixpence" amused and entertained those who went. A larger group was organized to attend The Ottawa Little Theatre's production of Noel Coward's "Hay Fever" presented in the Theatre of the NAC. Both the lyrics and action of this forty year old comedy delighted the youthful but not undemanding audience of Ashbury students. This particular production served to raise funds for the Ottawa Little Theatre, which was experiencing financial difficulties as the result of the destruction by fire of its long-time stamping grounds on King Edward Avenue. 18 The Theatre of the NAC was where the majority of the School's excursions headed. The Stratford National Theatre of Canada presented "Tartuffe" and "Cymbeline" in the Fall, and "The Duchess of Main" and ""Much Ado About Nothing" in the Winter. Both "Cymbeline" and "The Duchess of Malfi" strained, at times, the credulity of a generation used to the exposition of stark realism on film and to relying on the subtleties of expression which can be caught only by the camera. The Elizabethans relied almost exclusively on words to communicate feeling, and one's involvement with what was happen- ing on stage decreased as the evening lengthened. In fact both productions were close to three and a half hours long and, if drowsiness was not experienced close to the end of each, certainly one's powers of concentration had suffered a significant decline. Nevertheless, a large group witnessed both productions and were unanimous in realizing the importance of experiencing Elizabethan theatre even though it wasn't at its best. I understand that "Tartuffe" and "Much Ado About Nothing" were more successful. The rendering of Ibsen's "Enemy of the People" by the St. Lawrence Centre of the Arts was an unqualified success; not only because it dealt with the current issue of pollution, but also because of superb acting and direction. The setting was a small town in Saskatchewan and the time was 'now'. Even so the essence of Ibsen's insight remained intact. A man who holds views that run contrary to the mainstream of opinion struggles to express these views and have them acted upon, because he strongly believes he is right. But he and his views are unacceptable to the community because both assault the self-interests of too many factions. The presentation of this theme was dramatically persuasive. The bilingual members of the School went to see productions of Moliere's "Le Misanthrope" and Camus" "Caligula". Mr. Glover and Mr. Inns of the French Department reported that both were received with enthusiasm and interest by those attending. It is heartening to think that the School is in a position to take advantage of these NAC French-language productions. The Charlottetown Festival Company arrived at the NAC Opera House in the Fall to perform "Anne of Green Gables" and "Private Turvey's War". The Junior School and grade Nines went to the former and discovered first hand why it was a "hit'. Most of the remainder of the School saw "Private Turvey's War". It moved quickly and was frequently amusing, though I was disappointed that I didn't opt to see "Anne of Green Gables". The general opinion suggests that it was the better of the two. Last, but not least by any means, a large group enjoyed the 1970 production of "Love and Maple Syrup". A gathering of songs and poems by Canadians was performed with gusto by a talented group of six. I was delighted to see that a poem by an old school friend of mine, Pierre Coupey, was included in the program. No doubt one or two members of the Ashbury audiences will receive credits one day for a similar achievement. If the majority of them don't reach such a pinnacle of artistic success, after this year's exposure to the theatre, thev will unquestionably form knowledgeable and interested audiences of the future. Thanks for this is entirely due to Mr. Peter Josselyn, Head of the English Department. His enthusiasm for the theatre has commun- icated itself to the whole of the student body. I speak for staff and students when I extend thanks for his untiring organizational efforts and his inspi- ration. M.H.P. 19 THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE AT ELMWOOD For the fifth year in succession Ashbury joined forces with Elmwood to present a Gilbert and Sullivan opera — this time "The Pirates of Penzance". Although this is one of the shorter Savoy operas, it poses problems to an amateur company. There is very little spoken dialogue; much of the story is told through recitative and arioso, and it is essential that every point should get across clearly. It is also one of the best known and frequently performed of all comic operas; consequently every production runs far more risk of comparison with other productions. It is pleasant to be able to report that the Ashbury-Elmwood team solved these problems successfully. We were able to follow the story with no trouble, and the production did not have to fear comparison with others. Indeed, one member of the audience, who has had much to do with both amateur and professional theatre, was heard to say that this was the best school presentation of Gilbert and Sullivan she had ever seen. It was certainly far and away the best of the five which this company has mounted. It had pace, clarity, good movement and grouping, and mainly excellent performances in the leading roles. It is, however, time that Mr. Geoffrey Thomson discovered some new dance steps, or looked for a profes- sional choreographer! Of the principals, pride of place must be given to the hero and heroine — Dell Hallett and Jacqueline Hurd. They have both had plenty of experience in past productions, and this obviously paid dividends. There was no gauche- ness or embarrassment in their love scenes, and they both acted with sincerity, conviction and assurance. Jacqueline Hurd's singing voice is small, but she uses it musically and intelligently, and she shows a promising com- mand of coloratura technique — a technique which is called for pretty often in this part. Dell Hallett showed that he is a rare phenomenon among teen-agers (or adults, for that matter) — a natural tenor. He encompassed his high notes easily and with no sign of strain or effort, his enunciation was excellent, and he caught to perfection all the many and varied moods of his immensely long part. Both these two show very real promise. We regret that this was their fare- well appearance in Rockcliffe Park, and it is to be hoped that they will lose no opportunity of gaining further musical and dramatic experience; indeed, they ought to study singing seriously. But perhaps the finest all-round performance of the evening came from Jennifer Chance as Ruth — Gilbert's usual old maid, unloved and on the shelf. Her facial expressions and sense of timing were superb, particularly in the long duet with Frederick, when he accuses her of deception. Jennifer Chance is another who will be a great loss to the company, and who should not let her talents go to waste. There were two very promising debuts. The first was Sean Power as the Sergeant of Police. He is a natural clown; he tended to overdo the buffoonery at times, but it is far easier for a producer to curb excesses than to get blood out of a stone! Sean Power is no stone, and we look forward to further manifestations of his great gift for comedy. 20 The other auspicious debut was Jeffrey Graham's Pirate King. He had good presence, and was highly successful in striking the necessary balance between the character's sham blustering and innate pleasantness. He sang vigorously (although alarmingly sharp at times!), and infected everyone with his own huge enjoyment of the whole thing. It was a pity that John Macdonald, another seasoned veteran of these affairs, should have found himself miscast in his final appearance. He has done excellent work in past productions in the "nice boy'" type of part, but the "nice boy"' characteristic won't do for the Major-General, and he seemed nervous and ill at ease — particularlv in the famous (and extremely difficult ) patter song. Even so, his past achievements mean that he is another who will be much missed in the future. In smaller parts Jane Ginsberg, Jane Hampson, Ingrid Sorensen and Bill Stratton all acquitted themselves well. The three factions of the chorus were all good in their various ways. The Ashbury boys made splendid pirates, and some of the lecherous glee displayed by the younger ones, when told that they could help themselves to the Major- General's daughters, was so convincingly natural that one wonders if the Grade Nine curriculum needs careful scrutiny! The policemen were por- trayed ably (and aptly!) by Ashbury masters. The girls looked as charming as always, but seemed just a little more inhibited than some of their prede- cessors; they were less successful than the boys in the vital job of reacting to dramatic situations and staying in character, and their singing, although pretty and accurate, was somewhat muted. The sets were adequate, but the lighting was poor. Costumes were good, and make-up was better than ever before. Mrs. Lorna Harwood-Jones was a tower of strength at the piano, and was always ready to save musical situations on the stage which threatened to become critical; fortunately she did not have to render this all-important service very often. Mr. Geoffrey Thomson. Producer and Musical Director, is to be congrat- ulated on his firm musical and dramatic command, without which this production could not have reached so high a standard. The Critic 21 22 CADETS The Cadet Corps took on a new look this year with the emphasis heing taken off drill and placed on a varied program of activities. During the winter term cadets were able to choose from a number of groups, including orien- teering, first aid and canoe-building. This change from the regular routine was well received. During the first term two groups of 20 and then 50 students, composed partly of girls from Elm wood, went on week-end camping trips to the wilds of the Gatineau. This was just a prelude to the major cadet activity of the year: an excursion of the whole School, including Mr. Joyce, to Camp Petawawa during the last three days of the year. The trip was designed to introduce the School to outdoor camping, and it was highlighted by orien- teering competitions, rides in tanks, and combat rations. In spite of the inevitable grumbles, there is no doubt that this was a worthwhile experience. On Closing Day the Corps was inspected by Major-General G. H. Spencer, O.B.E., CD. The inspection was much shorter than in previous years, in keeping with the shift away from drill. Awards were presented as follows: Most Promising Recruit — Cadet Corporal G. A. McTaggart. Most Conscientious N.C.O. — Cadet Sergeant S. M. Wilansky. Best Bandsman — Cadet G. Harlley. Best Officer — Cadet Lieutenant C. H. Maclaren. C.O.*s Award — Cadet Major D. R. Hallett. Best Platoon — No. 1 Platoon. Cadet Lieutenant D. J. Morrison. Master Cadet Award — Cadet Captain P. J. S. Graham. Cadet Sergeant S. M. Wilansky. Special thanks are due to Mr. Humphreys for his many efforts in this his first year in command of the corps; also to Wilansky. Grills and Stoddard II for their help in returning uniforms. B. A. Boyd PETAWAWA TRIP As Mr. Joyce remarked in his speech on Closing Day. the Petawawa trip was plagued with a host of poorly planned minor details that perhaps, had the weather not been as perfect as it was, would have demoralized as well as in- furiated us. One of the highlights of the trip was the night orienteering course in which the corps, in its respective sections, dispersed in different directions, more or less under control of their orienteerers, to find, record and report back with some unknown letter at a given point. This was a timed exercise made all the more interesting by having the groups elude a hidden interceptor on the return journey. The following day we embarked upon what was the core of the trip. All sections were given maps and instructions on radio communication and told to disappear until the following morning. The day was spent walking from point to point, recording letters previously placed at x. y coordinates around the country-side. Each group had about 12 points to find and each camped at the last point they had to go to. The day was saved through constant conver- 23 sation and attempts (among groups) to get un-lost. Some groups, the smarter ones I think, went to their last points first and disposed of their back packs, which, particularly for the smaller boys, was a good idea. Entertainment that night was supplied by constant exchange over the radios in spite of repeated pleas from base camp for radio silence. Apparently singing beer-hall songs, protesting about the pine bugs, mosquitoes and other assorted insects in off-colour language, is frowned upon even by the army. The last day was spent lazing around, bathing and fishing in the lake, handing-in equipment, packing, and taking rides in army half-trucks and jeeps. On the morning of our departure, we were up at five and had breakfast at the army mess hall at Camp Petawawa. We finally left and arrived at Ottawa at 12:00 noon. So much for the highlights; the low points were of course the unmention- able food (adequate quantity, but who wanted it), the housing (general opinion on the lean-tos: "If it had rained one drop, I would have been hitch- hiking back to Ottawa."), and last but by no means least, the hoards of hungry insects. I think that the overall impression of the trip was favourable, and everyone could say they enjoyed at least one aspect of the expedition even if it was only the return journey. Perhaps next year more attention to the minor details and the experience gained from this trip will result in an even more successful and enjoyable time for all. S. Went 24 25 THE PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB Owing, perhaps, to the shortage of free time and the disproportionate amount of the same needed to pursue this particular hobby, enthusiasm was not unbounded. And, consequently, photographic expression was restricted (except of course amongst the die-hards) to Thursday afternoons and even then under some duress. However, all was not lost as several new members were introduced to the "inner sanctum" from where it is hoped that they will continue next year. Passport-sized individual photographs of all the students, a photography course for a cadet activity, and coverage of major games and cultural events during the school year, were included amongst the club's other spheres of interest this year. H. S. Went 26 Photo by Michael Barnes 27 Photos by Stephen Went ASHBURY in winter SCIENCE CLUB Our Science Club this year consisted of the following members: Wong, Stoddard. Hodgins. Hamilton, Nadeau, Bonneau, and myself as secretary. Hodgins tried to extract nicotine from tobacco. His experiment involved mixing tobacco with water, and distilling to obtain nicotine and water. He acidified the solution to obtain a hydrochloride of nicotine. Boiling then removes water and concentrates the nicotine. When alkali is added to neu- tralize the acid, nicotine can be separated by using salt and ether. The result was verj good and had no ill effect on him. Nadeau's experiment involved identification of the metal in a piece of unknown mineral rock. Chemical tests showed the presence of iron in the solution obtained with the rock and acid. Zinc dust displaced iron metal from this solution and it was picked up by a magnet. Magnesium and aluminium were also detected. He was satisfied with the results. Bonneau tried to prove that sugar contains carbon. He did it by adding concentrated sulphuric acid to sugar. After filtering and washing again and again, a big black mass of carbon was obtained which satisfied his curiosity. Hamilton was growing crystals with several different salts. Stoddard used lead nitrate and sodium chloride to obtain sodium nitrate and lead chloride. He tested his pure products for metals and acid radicles and then confirmed their identity. Wong and I did experiments on the principles of the electric current, its motions and the magnetic field. We have quite a lot of experience in this field. We are now making an apparatus for the school. The apparatus is for an experiment concerned with the motion of a conductor in a magnetic field. F. Chu 29 VALEDICTORY by the Captain of the School DEL HALLETT Mr. Chairman, members of the Board, Mr. Joyce, members of the Staff, ladies and gentlemen and distinguished members of Ashbury College student body. This has been a very fast year. The fact that it did go by so quickly is an indication that it was a good year — certainly a very tumultuous one. Trying to pick out highlights of the whole year is sometimes very difficult, since events, while remembered by some, might not be remembered by others. However, I'll start with something everyone must remember — cadets. Cadets took on a new look this year, with much less drill, as you probably guessed this morning. Instead of hours of marching, a more practical approach to cadets was devised. Last Tuesday we all went to Camp Petawawa and came back yesterday, except for a few hoarse throats and a few more mosquito bites no worse off than when we had left. Our formal this year took us and our sister school, Elmwood. to the Royal Ottawa Golf Club. It was the best dance in a number of years and I'm sure that those who did go will remember it for a long time. Chapel this year also changed, with a much more modern approach to religion. The rock opera "Jesus Christ - Superstar" was played on two Sundays in a row and the grand finale was last week's service in the Library. And who will forget the 7-1 win over Bishop's in football or the 1-0 loss in the soccer semi-finals to Glebe? The hockey team will surely remember the 9-2 win over the Old Boys, and the skiers, I imagine, will never forget Owl's Head. There was much more cohesion within the School this year. However, the spirit of the School was the spirit of the boarders — when the boarders were up, so was the School, and when the boarders were down, so was the School. There were still quite a few four o'clock schoolboys this year who contri- buted nothing after classes - mostly day boys. In a school of the size of Ashbury it is difficult to have two boarder houses, and distinctions should not be between two houses under the same roof; if distinctions must be made, they should be between day boys and boarders, with one day boy house and one boarder house. House competitions were very close this year. Woollcombe won the swim meet and hockey, while Connaught took the soccer and rugger games. Hull, again this year, remained strictly out of bounds, but I am almost certain that there were some weekend expeditions over to the forbidden city. Ashbury College is built on a strong foundation of friendship and an even stronger foundation of tradition. We must strive in the future for the better- ment of the school by keeping up with the times by means of modification, change and even abolition. This betterment must come from within the School itself and can only be achieved through a much closer relationship between staff and students. Striving must be sincere, not a chain of superfluous and meaningless gestures. I have been at Ashbury for five years and my feelings about leaving are very mixed indeed. However, I am able to look back on my schooldays with fond memories and, believe me, they are many. Ashbury College has so much potential — let's use more of it. 30 PRIZE LIST 1971 ACADEMIC PRIZES FORM PRIZES FOR GENERAL PROFICIENCY Presented by Mrs. J. C.

It opened with the Osgoode game. Getting off to a slow start, Ashbury was down 7-0, but made a tremen- dous comeback to win 14-7. Stanstead was another hard-fought game: the team did well until two mistakes gave Stanstead two touchdowns. The final 12-0 score understates the best effort of Ashbury against Stanstead in years. Lindsay Place was the next victory for Ashbury with a score of 13-6. The next game was played at Bishop's. It was a see-saw battle of two very evenly matched teams. A pass from Kelly to Clubb in the last minutes of play gave Ashbury the victory with a score of 7-1. Osgoode again played Ashbury in what proved to be a very close game. Ashbury lost this game 14-13 and several key players were injured. The next game was played at Lakefield against a very good opposition on a very sloppy field. Ashbury played exceptionally tenacious football, but pen- alties at important stages of the game cost us victory; Lakefield won 15-8. The final game of the season was the Old Boys game, which the School won 31-6, despite the valiant efforts of the opposition. VJ.B. J. K. Beqaj Many thanks go to the coaches — Messrs.

The 12-6 victory, on a muddy field in Montreal, was the first second team win in more years than anyone cares to remember. The Bishop's and Lakefield games were very disappointing, but the team put in fine efforts in both games. For the Selwyn House game we were boosted by a number of First team players as well as advice and encouragement from Mr. Simpson. We are extremely grateful to Mr. Penton and Mr. Niles for their unceasing efforts and patience. They always maintained our interest in what can easily become a routine game, and this means a great deal for the future of Ashbury football.

FIRST SOCCER The start of what proved to be a tough exciting season was far from promising. Plunged into our first games three days and one practice after opening day against two of the best teams in the league, disaster was not unexpected, although unhoped for. Play, however, improved over the next 5 league games with one tie and 4 wins. Skills and team coordination improved in spite of injuries, and we ended the regular season with 7 wins, 3 losses and tied for fourth place in the play-offs against Glebe Collegiate. The toss up game for fourth place was hard and fast moving, neither team scoring, until we made a fatal mistake in the last five minutes of play, and, in spite of re- doubled efforts, we lost 1-0, bringing total losses to 4 out of 13 league games. On a more personal level, highlights of the year's playing came at the Stanstead, Bishop's and the Old Boys games. We unfortunately lost 2-1 to Stanstead, again a hard game in adverse weather conditions, and as a result determined not to let Bishop's beat us as they had Stanstead. Determination proved victorious over a tough team and the final score was 1-0. The Old Boys put up a stiff fight for at least the first half, but were unable to maintain their drive and lost 2-1 to the superior team. To give special mention to any particularly strong or valuable player would be to list the team members, for everyone gave of his best at every game. Perhaps, though, we should mention that George Harlley received the Anderson trophy for the Most Valuable Player, and Stephen Went the Perry trophy for Most Improved Player. R.J.A. We the team would like to take this opportunity to give a vote of thanks to Ed Jokinen for the valuable contribution he made in goal and to Mr. Anderson as coach. To the team next year from this year's graduates "Good Luck"; you'll need it for the future Old Boys games. D. R. Hallett 40 Team Record: September 18th. versus Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Lost : 0- — 2.

Our first game was in September against St. George's; we won this game 2-0. Winning the first game was an excellent way in which to begin the season, and it did much for the morale of the team. We also had a very good game against Stanstead. We left Ottawa at three o'clock on a Friday afternoon and arrived at Stanstead at about six o'clock, receiving most courteous treatment during our stay there. The game began at ten o'clock on Saturday morning. All members of the team and their opponents played enthusiastically and with great determination. Throughout the game our coach. Mr. McGuire, was hard at work, shouting encouraging words ("Run, man! Run! Keep your eyes on the ball, boy!") We won that game 2-0. In Ottawa we were in competition with High Schools for a cup. The team improved remarkably and we managed to reach the semi-finals. We lost in overtime against Technical High School in a closely contested game which was filled with excitement; the final score was 2-1 for our opponents. We did not win the cup, but we had an enjoyable time playing soccer.

Of the seventeen games played, Ashbury managed eight victories, the majority of the wins coming in the second half of the season. The team played some good solid hockey, but a lack of depth hurt their chances against teams of top calibre. The major problem at the first of the season was finding capable replace- ments for the excellent goal-tending received the vear previous. However. Robert Pimm and Jay Ronalds accepted the net-minding challenge and con- tributed much to the team's more consistent play in the second half of the season. The majority of the games were played against stiff local competition, members of the Ottawa High School league. In these games, the boys showed they could more than hold their own. Starting the season with two quick victories, the team then fell prey to some erratic defensive play and sagged badly until the Champlain game in late January. A well-earned 4-2 victory put the team back on the winning track and it began to play the solid brand of hockey demonstrated earlier in the season. However, it was the traditional rivalries against Bishops, Lakefield and the Old Boys that the team looked forward to with the greatest anticipation. The game results were not as satisfying. An aggressive Bishops team withstood a third period rally and emerged a 7-4 victor. Ashbury battled the strong Lakefield club to a 1-1 standoff for two periods of play, but were unable to stand relentless third period pressure, and lost by a decisive 7-1 margin. A measure of redemption was claimed in the Old Boys game however, as the team romped to a spirited 9-2 victory, their most decisive win of the season in the finai game of the year. The Fraser trophy awarded to the most valuable player went to Mike Kelly, a most deserving performer who played standout hockey game in and game out. Derek Pryde, small in size, but long on skill and determination, won the Irvin trophy as the most improved player on the team. Some of the team's more valuable performers will be missing next year, but a good nucleus of hockey talent remains and, w ith continued improvement from some of the younger team members, Ashbury should again be a foe to be reckoned with in the new year.

The leading goal-scorers were Ian Robertson. Stuart Jelenick, Peter Croal and Ricky Luciani. The highlight of the season was the trip to Amherst, Massachusetts, where the team faced a very good opposition.

The first team played 15 games in the Ottawa High School League where we won 9 games and earned a playoff berth. This is a first for Ashbury in three years of interscholastic competition. Unfortunately the berth was defaulted due to the school having Easter holidays when the playoffs started. Our positional standing has been improved from fourth place last year to third this year. For the second time Ashbury entered the Tiny Hermann Bonspiel. We did very well going to the semi-finals before losing to a very fine, but lucky, team on the last rock. Needless to say they went on to win the final. The first and second teams had their annual games with Bishop's. The 1st team defeated the Bishops team by a comfortable margin. Our 2nd team lost on the last rock. It is quite remarkable to notice the number of games which were decided by the last rock. Combined score for the Ashbury-Bishop's games was Ashbury 17 and Bishop's 11. There was a lot of fun curling the day of the House Competition. Several Masters played and also some Grade 9 and 10 first time curlers. You could tell the first time curlers from the Masters - they were smaller! On the basis of combined scores Connaught beat ^ oollcombe 20 to 16. Skips for House League Curling were Rimsa. McLellan. Plummer and Stoddard. When points were added up Rimsa was declared Champion. Three of the House League skips ( Rimsa. McLellan. Stoddard) teamed up with the first team's Kenny to form Ashbury "s second team. The first team consisted of Schofield. who did a very fine job of skipping ( we'll miss you Charles). Elkin. who could be counted on to do good shots when he had to. Kennv. who has shown great potential as a fine curler and who skipped the 2nd team, and last but not least Yaxley, who in his first year of curling did a fine job. Rosenhek was the team's verv valuable spare. E.E.G. 45 Back Row: Front Row: THE SKI TEAM K. D. Niles, Esq., D. M. Stewart, G. Martineau, W. S. Hart, I. H. Smith, R. J. Anderson, Esq. T. G. Martin, C.

SKIING Ashbury 's ski-team participated in two major competitions this year: the Art Lovett Memorial Ski Meet held at Camp Fortune, and the Tri-School Meet at Owl's Head in the Eastern Townships. In the Art Lovett, Ashbury finished second in a field of six local high- schools. This was one of our better efforts in competitive skiing in recent years, and was largely the result of a consistent effort on the part of all members of the team, rather than a brilliant display by one or two individuals. However, the performances of two new-comers to the team are worthy of note: Dan Lackie placed seventh in the giant slalom and third in the slalom; Tony Seay, who came to us from Sedbergh, placed sixth in the cross-country. At Owl's Head, our luck was much the same as last year. The gremlins were at work again, and most of our skiers lost time or were disqualified by falls. As a result, Ashbury finished fifth in a field of five. Unlike last year, however, there was a very real compensation for an otherwise disappointing result. Jimmy Cuttle won the trophy, (almost as big as he is), for the best individual performance. His personal results for the meet were as follows: first in the slalom, third in the giant slalom, and an amazing thirteenth in the cross-country. This was a truly fine performance, and well deserving of the highest praise. K.D.N. 46 SWIMMING TEAM Back Row: H. J. Robertson, Esq., S. D. Harcourt, J. S. McEachran, T. A. Dickson. Front Row: K. J.

The School entered a senior and an intermediate team in the Ottawa High Schools meet and met with mixed success. The seniors encountered very stiff competition in the open events, but the intermediate team, comprising Scott McEachran. Tom Dickson. Scott Harcourt and Peter Copestake. performed creditably, winning a place in the final of the Medley Relay. In addition McEachran. Copestake and Harcourt won places in the individual finals. The climax to the season was the Ashbury meet, and what a climax it proved to be! Woollcombe avenged last season's defeat, winning a thrilling competition by 185-183 points on the last event. As swimming is still a fledgling sport at Ashbury. it has been decided not to make team awards at this stage. H.J.R. RUGGER Rugger was introduced as one of the spring term sports this year. Consider- able interest seems to have been created, despite the fact that other established sports made inroads on the numbers available to play. Nevertheless we were able to arrange a first-ever Ashbury inLer-House game, in which Connaught deservedly beat Vi oollcombe by 3-0. The spring term is not really suitable for a number of reasons, but at present there is no alternative. It is hoped that next year we might arrange a seven-a-side competition with other interested schools in the citv. H.J.R. 47 W K //-' 1 THE TRACK TEAM Back Row: D. J. Morrison, M. Bonneau.

He was an ivory-hunter by profession, and a farmer by aspiration, and success in the first was steadily piling up the gold '■Krugers ,, which would enable him to start the other. He puffed contentedly at his long pipe, enjoying the evening sunlight casting its glow over the grassy veldt. The camp was a scene of quiet domesticity. The "boys" moved slowly about their tasks, watering the horses, trek oxen and cattle, cleaning and repairing the great wagon and cooking their evening meal. Suddenly the subdued clatter of the routine gave way to an excited hubbub. A small, yellow-skinned man, his hair twisted into tight peppercorn knots came trotting into camp. He was a bushman with the peculiar stance and inscrutable expression of the Kalahari hunters. He halted in front of Hendrick and squatted, bowing briefly so that his forehead touched the dust, and then sat. idly drawing patterns with the tip of his bow and mulling over his thoughts with the patience of one who was unconcerned with time as white men know it. He spoke. "Mein Kroon, I, Rinkalss, have searched many days, seeing what these blind Waginga (with a glance of contempt at the Bantu servants, hereditary enemies of his race) who call themselves hunters have not seen.'"' He paused portentously. "I have seen Chinoko, the bewitched one!" Hendrick sat bolt upright, his hand unconsciously snapping the clay stem of his pipe. "Allerweld! His tusks, man, are they what the legends say?" Hendrick's eyes gleamed as he remembered tales of Chinoko, last seen by Andreius Pretorius, the great Boer hunter, who had hunted him and died in the attempt. Of how his tusks were so heavy that he rested them on tree branches, and how the natives swore that the spirit of Chaka, the "Black Elephant" and despot of Zululand. lived on in him. The bushman answered, his face as ever expressionless, but a flicker of concern in his slanted eyes. "Baas, because I swore to serve you when you saved me from the Great Thirst, I have done this thing, but my heart is heavy. The ivory is as great as the tales say, but — , Baas, every hunter who has sought this beast has died, and already enough tusks lie in the wagon for the land you yearn for. Why bring the curse upon your head?" Hendrick's booming laugh rang out over the camp. "Afraid of the spook, eh. Rinkalss? Well, I'd sell my soul to get those tusks. They'll be a record for certain, and I don't set much store by the mungu-mungu's tales. Pack some biltong on Blouboi, and be ready at sun-up. ' The bushman sighed noiselessly and bowed again, murmuring. "Ja. ja, baas," under his breath, and then rose to his feet and strode away in one curiously fluid motion. Four hard and difficult days later, the Boer and the bushman crouched motionless in a bush and watched with awe as the great elephant stood, sway- ing and resting his great ivory tusks on a low branch of a thorn tree. His grey. dusty hide was ripped and scarred by innumerable conflicts and the crippling wound left by Pretorius' quarter-pound lead shot was plainly visible. This animal was old, perhaps as much as a century, and every angle of his still- mighty frame exuded the same sense of ancient solidity as the bare, stark slope of a mountain. 53 Slowly, softly Hendrick worked the bolt of his .450 elephant gun and with infinite, painstaking care lifted it to his shoulder, drawing a bead on the crucial spot behind the shoulder. His finger tightened with a smooth, steady motion. Suddenly, the great grey head turned and he found himself looking into the small, wrinkled eyes. Hendrick hesitated as a strange sensation stole over him. For a brief moment he glimpsed the mind behind that eye, felt an ancient lassitude, the tired, solitary essence of a being weary unto death. Hendrick felt an unfamiliar emotion: pity. The gun came down from his shoulder reluctantly, but cursing his weakness he raised it again. Hesitating, irresolute, the muzzle wavered and then with a quick, decisive movement the hunter pointed it skyward and fired. The shot broke the buzzing, humid stillness of the lowveldt afternoon. The sail-like ears and snaky trunk whipped up. instantly alert and then with a rending crash the huge beast was gone. Hendrick looked down at his hands curled around the rifle: hard, capable hands, calloused from rope and rein and gunstock. and groped for the words to express novel concepts. For a moment he stood thus, then with a shrug of his shoulders he turned to his horse, saying, "Come. I see the finger of the Lord in this, and it is time I returned to my own people and my own land." The bushman smiled enigmatically and silently thanked the ancient, mysterious gods of the Kalahari for their munificence as he fell into his tireless lope behind his master's horse. The beat of the horse's hooves echoed for a moment and then all was as before, except for a single brass cartridge shining in the sun. S. Stirling WRITING POETRY Here it is a Thursday night And still I have a poem to write. "A long or short one" was the warning, "To be handed in on Friday morning." Since a poet I am not I will write I know not what. I cannot think of what to say, And time so quickly flies away. I'd like to write of lands and seas Or possibly of flow'rs and trees. The land is dry, the sea is deep, - - But all too soon I'll fall asleep! Perhaps I'll be like Willy Shakespeare And compose a sonnet to my Dark Dear. Or perhaps as Keats I'd make you yearn To know just how much a Greek does 'urn". "A long or short one" was the warning, "To be handed in on Friday morning." P. Ballinger 54 FERRETS AND FERRETING According to a beloved American tradition, every boy should have a dog. But judging from the literature of England of the last century, a dog was considered an unnecessary luxury for youngsters, although every boy did have his own ferret. He used the ferret to bolt rabbits into nets, and made his pocket money selling the rabbits to butchers, as many an Englishman fondly remembers. Gamekeepers, poachers, and ratcatchers also had ferrets. Although many descriptions <>l rural life in England contain references to ferrets, there is little or no account of their use in America. Yet ferrets were employed in America on a scale much greater than that of Europe. From the beginning of time, hunters have longed for some device to bolt quarrv from holes and burrows. The ferret was the answer. In Egyptian times nobles used trained weasel-like animals called ichneumons to retrieve injured ducks from dense cover. Later a small Asian weasel was domesticated, and probably crossed with the European polecat to give it more size and stamina. The domestic ferret (Mustek furo) is the result, and averages about a foot and a half in length, including a five-inch tail, and it stands some three inches high. The females, called "Jills'", are much smaller but are better ratters, as the big males, known as "habs". are often too large to go down the holes. Ferrets have become so completely domesticated that they can not fend for themselves in the wild, and a lost ferret will starve to death. Domestic ferrets are quite slow, and cannot catch quarry unless they happen to corner their prey in a dead-end hole. But in hunting, their work is to drive out the quarry, not to kill it. Ferrets were used not only against rats and rabbits, but on just about every animal that has to be bolted from burrows. They had other uses, too. When telephone companies started to put their lines underground, the only way they could run the wires through the long pipes was to start a rat through the pipe with a ferret after him. the ferret wearing a harness to which was attached a light string that later was used to pull the wire through the duct. Ratcatchers used ferrets a great deal in their profession, which in the days of the plague was an important job. Professional ratcatcbers usually break in young ferrets by keeping them in a loft full of old drainpipes so that the animals will get used to running through long passageways in complete darkness, although this really isn t necessary as ferrets will go down a hole naturally. The ferrets must also get used to the ratting terriers, who are their partners in the hunt. When the little ferrets are six months old. the trainer gives them mice to kill. Later he puts in rats whose long incisor teeth have been removed: otherwise the young animals might get so badly bitten that they'd come to fear rats. The mere presence of a ferret in a hole drives rats mad with terror. A ferret follows rats by their scent, like a miniature bloodhound, and no matter where the rats hide he will eventually "ferret them out". A ferret that is a "killer'" (one that deliberately tries to corner rats to kill and eat them), is not considered a good ratter. He wastes too much time and it's too hard to get him out of a hole. Killing is the dogs job. Game commissions often use ferrets to catch rabbits alive for restocking. A bag or net is held at the mouth of the hole: nets are better as a bag darkens the entrance and sometimes makes the rabbit turn back. Purse-type nets operating on the drawstring principle were once made for this purpose, and could be bought in any general store. In these days ferrets are illegal in most of the United States and Canada, supposedly for sporting reasons. Personally, I feel that ferreting is a fasci- nating sport. It is most unfortunate that misinformed people are against it. In Europe, ferreting still seems to be practised, but the average person has read little or heard little of this exciting art. R. Halupka THE ARTIST I rush myself, to pass swift through, And render previous efforts vain, Aft mystic cons'mate thoughts do grope. My lines run false, what need'st be true, Boredom and weariness in the main, Take their toll of fickle hope. The ego, like a tempest grew, Which pierced, releas'd such torrents bane, That frail, and timid talent slopes, To nil. S. Winterton TOGETHERNESS Paper clips have many uses. And even come in for abuses. When the boy was young, and the day did rain He slipped them together to make a chain: When the chain was long enough, he felt, He'd tie it around him like a belt. "Paper clip collars!" — his dogs would yelp. And bed finish up having to cry for help. When the same boy was somewhat older. And. I might add. a good deal bolder, Clips, in his slingshot were ammunition To send poor birds straight to perdition. I must confess that his aim was erratic And the rows of jays merely gave him static. When even older and out at work, Many and often were the times he'd shirk. "Working for a living: what a pain!" "Slip clips together to make a chain." "Rubber band? Oh. good morning. Miss Sweeting." "Good shot! that caught the old gal retreating." There is a moral to this caper. "Use paper clips for holding paper." M. S. Jelenick 56 THROUGH THE EYES OF AN OLD TIMER It was July 30th. 1971. when Ahe awoke. He felt as though he had been asleep for a century. He arose refreshed but hungry. As he looked about him, he thought he noticed a difference in the woods from when he had fallen asleep. He couldn't quite place it but. oh well, no matter. He removed his hunting knife from its sheath and fondled it lovingly between his fingers. He'd won it at the county fair the year before and had carried it with him ever since. Two hours later he was sitting beside a fire chewing away on a fine young rabbit. After he had finished. Abe decided he'd better be going home. He'd told his wife he would be gone just a night and so not to worry. He struck out in a north-easterly direction, being sure to keep the sun to his right and slightly behind him. He thought it strange that he had not heard any birds. He soon noticed that the sky was becoming overcast and so began to hurry. It did not rain. Suddenly he came to an opening in the trees. A thin strip extended as far as he could see in either direction. Within this clearing were two separate paths. To Abe they were smooth and grey, reminding him of two long hair ribbons. Just then Abe heard a noise. It grew louder and louder. With a roar it rushed past him and disappeared in the distance. It was hard to describe the thing. It seemed to be made of green iron. It had four eyes and flashing teeth. It resembled a carriage, but then it didn't. Whatever it was its harsh smell stung his nostrils. Abe fainted. When he awoke he had no idea where he was. He seemed to be lying on a couch. There were two of them in the small room, both facing the same way. Sitting on the other one were two men. but thev were dressed in a very strange manner. Abe lay there, trembling. He seemed to be dreaming. But no. he wasn't. The room had windows in it. so Abe raised himself up and stared out. He felt himself feeling faint again. The ground and trees were moving along in a blur. Soon he began to see buildings of some sort. But they were different. They became larger and larger until thev seemed to scrape the sky. The room stopped beside one of these structures that appeared to be made of rock. A door in the side of the room opened and the two men helped Abe get out. He stood there, legs trembling, feeling extremely weak. Then it hit him. Everywhere there was confusion and noise. The atmosphere around him stung his eyes. Abe began to cough. He looked around and saw many more things with eyes and flashing teeth. He heard sounds that resem- bled the honking of geese in the spring and fall, but they were much harsher. There were also loud sounds that he could not recognize at all. He could not see any trees or grass and he was standing, not on earth, but on a hard foreign substance. The men ushered him towards the structure. One of them entered the doors. They started to go around and around. Abe was expecting the man to come out again, but he didn't. The other man escorted him to the doors. Abe walked in and found himself having to walk quickly so as not to clip his heels. Around and around he went until one of the men pulled him out of the doors into a very large room. He had never seen anything like it before in his life. Light was streaming from squares in the ceiling and people in white were bustling around like ants at a picnic. 57 A man in white walked up to Abe and took him down many of the halls. They came to a pair of doors and stopped. But there were no latches or handles. The door opened, Abe stood there aghast, They entered through the doors into a small room. The man pressed a button and Abe's stomach liter- ally dropped to the floor. Abe fell against the wall and hung on to a supporting rail. Then he felt as though he had just lost fifty pounds. The door opened and he found himself in a hallway that he did not recognize. This was too much. He ran to the end of the hall and came to a glass door. He shoved it open. Abe was careful not to look down for he found himself high in the sky. Leading down to the ground were stairs. Meanwhile, the man in white was chasing Abe and he had no choice but to leap down the stairs as fast as he could. He found the steps ended about ten feet above the ground and he was forced to jump. He started running but had only gone a few feet when he stopped. He looked up. With a roar, a huge silver bird flew a few hundred feet over Abe's head. Smoke was pouring from its wings. Abe covered his ears and fell. . . TORONTO DAILY STAR July 31, 1971 A middle-aged man died yesterday of unknown causes on Dundas Street beside the Royal Victoria Hospital. In his pockets were a Bill of Sale for Concession VIII, Lot 36, awarded to Abe Millar, dated June 14, 1868, and an 1869 fifty-cent piece. Police are continuing the investigation. D. B. Johnston A CASE OF FRUSTRATION You have been trying to convince your boss that you must catch a train that leaves in twenty minutes. Finally he notices how nervous and fidgety you are so he lets you go. You grab your briefcase and coat and dart down- stairs to shout for a taxi. The driver is a fat old man who is slightly deaf. As you give him your destination, he happy-go-luckily begins to sing to himself. After a long and winding journey, you make it to the train station; only two minutes left. Fortunately for you, your ticket is already bought, but unfortu- nately for you. you are out of cigarettes. You scuttle over to the cigarette machine, drop your briefcase and coat, and feverishly scrabble for the proper change to dab into the machine from your bulging coin-pocket. The train has already arrived, and the conductors have just yelled, "All aboard." Your brand of cigarettes isn't there so you hurriedly think of another type you're fond of. You stab the button just as the train begins to move and you wait the extra few seconds for the matches. By now the train's speed has increased quite impressively. Now you run, run faster than you have ever run before. Your aim is for the bars on the caboose that are coming closer and closer as you pour on the speed. Finally with one last dive, you reach and grab the cold metal rungs. As you slowly pull yourself to the platform you look back at that solitary cigarette machine that you hate so much. And there beside it are your briefcase and coat. A. Skolnik 58 TWO CARS THAT CRASHED Body hurts, Blood is running, Bones are crushed: Can't help crying. Cars are smashed, People dead, Some still living With broken heads. Going fast, Can't last long, Doctors trying, I'm too far gone. The end is here, All things mashed, Such the result: Two cars that crashed. V. Lynch-Staunton SCHISM He's with me at last as 1 climb inside my bottle. I never thought he would make it tonight. Lately it has taken a lot before he would appear. Tonight one bottle; tomorrow maybe two. I never feel secure until he comes. He does something for me. But we have split. We are one and the same, yet we are different from each other. As I am not imaginative I could never arrive at a name for him. He is simply X, the unknown. He talks to me as the teacher would talk to the pupil. Our relationship is like that of the intellectual to the baby. He is so superior to me I cannot feel inferior. I can only regard him with awe and obey him, for everything he says stems from the most perfect logic. Perhaps he is not so smart. Perhaps I am only a drunken fool. Yet he is so convincing. He cannot see. or feel, or smell. I am his eyes, his hands, his nose. He can only listen to my problems and then talk. Oh, how he can talk! Sometimes I am overcome to the point of blackout. It would not do to black out though. for he might leave me. Some other body might appeal to him: some other mind. I'd be lost without him. Some people without too many brains would consider me an alcholic. They don't realize I have to remain sane. If they stopped me from drinking it would be like prison where you're not allowed to visit your best friend when you want. Some people have religion: they have God or Jesus Christ. I have X, the unknown. But tonight he appears different. Wait, he's talking to me now. ^ hat's he saying? I can't make it out. One more drink. He's coming in clearer now. I've got it now. I am supposed to kill. I can't kill just anybody. It has to be someone in particular. I hoped it would never come to this. He's not satisfied with just my mind. now. He wants my body too. I guess he wants complete control. One can't really blame him. He is smarter than me. talks better, is more convincing. He would never make a fool of himself. In fact, he deserves me better than I do. There's only one answer. I'll have to kill myself to make room for a superior. That's life! The weak ones die. the strong ones live. I'm sorry that I am so weak. Maybe next time it will be different. Good-bye. . . . K. Torrens 59 UTOPIA Multitudes are passing before me But they don't see me For I'm dead. Faces drawn and thin Encircle where eyes must have been, But now in their place Are dark swollen things. No words are spoken For none are needed. Burned out souls Need utter no sound, For sound is an echo of thought, And here there is no thought, As there once was said to be. Life is given and life is taken, Or so it was once writ By one of power and goodness Who. it was believed (by poor dejected souls), Guided children and older children To love each other and live in peace. But it was found there could be no "peace" Amongst despotic warring nations, Thus there was left but one form of peace, The Ultimate Utopia. The Ultimate peace. The sweet bliss of death: Oblivion. P. Leffler THE STRIKE The silver bird Stoops to kill No sound is heard All is still Beautiful in line and form Beauty cold and stern Fire and steel, war tides storm Wings flash and turn Needle beak, pinions sweep Cannon flashing bright silver bird, our foemen reap Angel of the Lords of Light! 60 S. M. Stirling RUN FOR YOUR LIFE Walter was running for his life. A short distance behind him were at least a score of savages, armed with razor-edged spears and clubs. Ahead of him lay the jungle, filled with unknown dangers. Beyond that lay the safety of the base camp — four miles ahead. The savages, naked to the waist, ran bare-foot across the jungle floor. They slipped easily in between the low bushes and undergrowth. Necklaces of leopard claws stood out against their black skins. Walter cursed his heavy, awkward hunting boots and thick clothing, but he knew better than to stop. He ran heavily, but not slowly. The aborigines were not running full out: they realized that they had plenty of time in which to finish this cat-and-mouse game. They smiled to one another as they ran. and their smiles revealed spiked teeth — teeth filed to points. They knew their quarry was sure to tire, and besides, they weren't that hungry — yet. Walter was well aware of his predicament. If the cannibals caught him. they would eat him — it was that simple. He had the sense and keen insight to realize that he would have to pace himself to be able to continue; running blindly and recklessly would merely burn up his energy, and exhaust him quickly. So Walter ran steadily at a brisk pace, vaguely aware that the aborigines strung out behind him were likewise settling into an even gait. Gradually the panic in Walter's mind subsided, and was replaced with cold determination. Walter realized he had a chance if he kept his nerve and used his wits: his stamina was his one great hope. So W'alter ran on. timing his breaths with his strides, and using his lungs to their capacity. His pulse gradually slowed and steadied to a regular beat. Logs and clumps of vegetation appeared in his path from time to time, hut Walter was cautious; a stumble or trip would mean his death. Occasionally a jungle bird would flush, and startle W'alter badly. But once he looked up and saw a deadly snake — the venomous Boomslang — strung across a branch over the path. Walter reacted quickly and managed to duck just in time. A few moments later he heard one of his pursuers shriek as the snake struck home with its poisonous fangs. However, the rest of the natives paused but briefly, then continued the chase with renewed fervour. They were intent on their prey. Walter kept going, and the natives persevered. But the aborigines were finally beginning to show signs of fatigue — this man was not such an easj catch after all. They had underestimated the stamina of this apparent weak- ling. However, they were far from giving up. They had gone two miles, but they had two more in which to overtake their prey. The race with death was taking its toll on Walter — his muscles screamed for rest; his lungs were near to bursting. Once he almost gave in to the great temptation to stop briefly. But a close miss by a long range spear changed his mind. Animal instincts were strong in him. Sheer guts and determination kept him moving. He gritted his teeth and ran on. and on. and on. Meanwhile, of the some twenty to thirty cannibals that had started after him. only a dozen or so were uncomfortably close to him: the rest had fallen far back or given up. But the savages were persistent — their hunting lives had taught them to be both patient and relentless. 61 In a sudden flash of movement, Walter tripped, and collapsed on the ground. He almost didn't get up. The natives were closing in fast. Then he saw the smoke of the base camp, and he was inspired. He jumped to his feet, and forced his aching body to respond. He poured on all his strength, and ran, and ran, and ran. Then, before him like a mirage, he saw the camp. People were calling to him. Images turned through his mind in a dream-like haze. He could no longer feel his body — only excruciating pain. He no longer cared what happened. Yet through some miracle, he managed to complete the last few strides into the safety of the camp. Then he blacked out. When Walter revived, he became aware of friends around him; friends supporting him and congratulating him. "You did it again, Walt," cried one of his supporters. "You beat the best runners in the country," yelled another. "Yes, you won the cross-country for the fourth time in a row," added a beaming admirer. The coach came up and said approvingly: "You were great. But tell me — how do you do it? What's your secret? you ran as if your life depended on it." Walter just panted, and grinned slightly to himself. R. Halupka THE INDIVIDUAL I sit and watch the people. The people on the road, And I watch them through my window That sits just off the road. But I feel the eyes of people. The eyes that follow me. And they stare and gaze in anger, And they will not let me be. For I sit away from all of them And I do not walk their road. For they all wander like blind men And walk and just grow old. But I'll not walk that path today Following their feet; so let me be, Not follow those who always frown Because I shall be me. P.

Trees, sadly cannot manage a smile, The water runs impeded by a congregation of floating fish. Grim crackling in the night, as only the moon lies down for rest. A boy cries in the wilderness for life once more. The world rests with the smell of destruction, Smoke fills the streets signifying the end. M. Kelly I FEEL FINE I feel fine anytime she's around me, She's around me now almost all the time; If I'm well you can tell she's been with me, She's been with me now quite a long, long time; And I feel fine. There's something in the way she moves, Or looks my way or calls my name, That seems to leave this troubled world behind. And if I'm feeling down and blue, Or troubled by some foolish game, She always seems to make me change my mind. Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning, And I find myself careening Into places where I should not let me go. But she has the power to go where no-one else can find me, And to silently remind me Of the happiness and good times that I know. It isn't what she's got to say. Or how she thinks or where she's been, To me her words are nice the way they sound. I like to hear them best, her way. It doesn't matter what they mean, She says them mostly just to calm me down. I feel fine anytime she's around me. She's around me now almost all the time. If I'm well you can tell she's been with me. She's been with me now quite a long, long time. And I feel fine. Yes! I feel fine. D.

Monday morning, very early. From the outposts of the building, From the halls and from the tunnels, From the classrooms, from the loekers, From the quad and from the library, From the flats and from the bedrooms, Came the students, loudly wailing, Came the students, strolling slowly. Students fat and students meagre. Students tall and students shorter, To the Hall, to Rhodes Hall coming, On the chairs they sat complaining, Half asleep but still complaining. Very sleepy were the students In the tranquil air of morning. Then the mighty Duguay shouting, "Oh be quiet, stop your talking. Cease that scraping of your benches, Cease that tapping on the tables." Now the prefects had their silence. The order was that all must stand there; Through the door came Joyce, Headmaster, With arms swinging he came forward; "Sit down, hoys." came the order, "Please sit down and stop the noise. I have glorious things to tell you. Tales of victories, tales of triumph. Boys of Ashbury School defeated, Not by much and not in spirit. Only nineteen goals to nothing; Soon I hope to see the dayboys Turning out in greater numbers, Let us see you out there shouting, Let us see some more school spirit. Stand please, boys, and say the Lord's Prayer." So they did and mumbled, "Amen.'" So Mr. Joyce slowly left them Head in air and keen eyes flashing. See the boys, hurry, hurry, Glad indeed to get to classes And to leave the Hall behind them. S. Whitwill 65 THE WILD HUNT To thunder's flash the wild hunt rides Stark against the moon , Hell hounds bay at their tattered sides Moaning, while hunters croon. Despair! Despair!

Peace is the love Of a foe as a friend. Peace is a dawn On a day without end. Peace is the joy Bringing war to an end. A PERSON Unimportant, Like a word in the news. So all alone.

I will always remember the all too familiar call of "Strike Three!" ringing in my ears as I sadly left the batter's box: the echoing of Mr. Sherwood's voice as he shouted, "Don't run in the halls!'"; the shrill blast of the refs whistle as he pointed to the penalty spot; the metallic clink of another high jump "flub'"; the roar as another Johnson slapshot ripped the net; and last and most certainly least, the deadly hush that greeted the "punch line" of another Sherwood joke. The year's athletic and academic competitions have been very close and no House need be ashamed that it did not come first. Of all the days in the year, the one that gives the greatest number of boys the opportunity to do their "thing" is probably Sports Day. The Day this year was very dramatic and all over the fields boys were breaking their backs achieving personal bests in order to give their houses precious points. The feeling of pride among our particular House when our Senior Relay Team won was so great that you could almost reach out and touch it. Wonderful moments such as these make up an experience that I will cherish always. Whether the boys that leave go on to other schools or to the Senior School, I know that they will always remember with happiness the Junior School and the way of life and learning that we are leaving behind us. Mark Josselyn 69 SCHOOL NOTES The Junior School is divided into four Houses, and the healthy rivalry which results is one of the most important factors contributing to that vague term, "School Spirit". I am introducing this topic into the Notes as I possibly have a certain perspective which permits me to be a judge of the matter. After a close association with the Junior School for many years. I moved to other work. Only this year did I return to full time participation. Perhaps this will allow me to give our School a hearty pat on the back, as I think I retain a dispassionate point of view. In his closing address to the boys, Mr. Sherwood spoke of the year as having been a good one. He mentioned that there had been better - and worse. If this is the case, we have a high standard. The House rivalry mentioned in the opening paragraph is only one instance of the high morale of the School. The fact that a boy is popular because he works hard, not despite this fact, is another. The genuine interest which the Colour Board attracts is another factor, equally important to House rivalry. The staff have been able to arouse whole-hearted support for such varied group activities as cross country running, and poetry reading. As mentioned in the article about the Chess Tournament, 75^0 of the boys entered. Perhaps the prime example of School Spirit was shown when practically the whole Junior School gave up a Saturday to raise money for the Canadian Save The Children Fund. The specific purpose was to increase our support of Rosaria, Ashbury's "sister" who lives in the slums of Rome. Each House produced five teams, and Rockcliffe Park was divided among the groups who went from home to home spring cleaning. Cars were washed, lawns were raked, rubbish was disposed of. By the end of a cheerless, rainy day $536 had been raised. The boys are happy at Ashbury because they work hard. After careful screening we have accepted many an unhappy "problem child" whose be- haviour was the despair of his parents and teachers in a previous school. Almost without exception these boys, under friendly discipline, have fitted happily into the Junior School, and in many cases have made a considerable contribution. The year has of course had its problems. At many a Monday Assembly the boys have sat in frightened silence while Mr. Sherwood has forcefullv pointed out misdemeanors. Problems yes. but no outrages. A happy family has similar situations to contend with. '"Just one big, happy family", is a trite phrase, but I do feel that Ashbury's Junior School can lay claim to the expression. D.L.P. 70 JUNIOR SCHOOL HOUSE COMPETITION A most enthusiastic competition this year kept the lead changing from House to House right up until the day before Closing. The result was very much in doubt until the last game in the House Softball Competition which was clearly won in both divisions by the bottom House, the Goblins, from the Hobbits and Wizards in that order. The year's final points were: HOBBITS 972 M. Josselyn, Captain of House. WIZARDS 952 S. Belding, Captain of House. DRAGONS 940 P. Farquhar. Captain of House. GOBLINS 889 C. Teron, Captain of House. Houses competed in every aspect of school endeavour, points being awarded for academics, colour board, choir membership, librarian appointments, sports, and a dozen other activities from the pancake toss to snow sculpturing. Points were awarded both individually and for team results. Each of the Houses met with success in some field of endeavour. Below are mentioned the various House Winners of team events. 1st Term: Soccer Senior — Goblins Junior — Wizards Tug o" War Senior — Goblins Junior — Dragons 2nd Term: Swimming First — Dragons Second — Goblins Hockey Senior — Dragons Junior — Wizards Skiing Senior — Wizards Junior — Wizards 3rd Term: Cross Country First — Dragons Second — Hobbits W izards Crab Soccer Junior — Hobbits Volley Ball Senior — Hobbits Track Meet First — Hobbits Second — Dragons Softball Senior — Goblins Junior — Goblins Congratulations to this year's winner.

Every boy had to pay 250 admission and the money was sent to St. Michael's Mission in South Africa to help fight cholera. The vast majority of the Junior School entered. Some came in torn-up shirts and hacked jeans, others in scuffed clothes with mud and paint over them. Some took this opportunity to get away from school dress and came in casual clothing. There was a grand prize of S5.00 offered to the grubbiest person and Rod Dowling won. Richard Robertson 71 JUNIOR SCHOOL AWARDS The two most important awards in the Junior School are The Woods Shield, established in 1941; and the Stephen Clifford Memorial Cup, established this year. Winners of the cups are the two most outstanding boys in the Junior School. Shirley E. Woods, a distinguished Old Boy of Ashbury, was appointed Chairman of the Board of Governors in 1938, remaining in this position until 1945. At the time he donated the Woods Shield three of his sons were attend- ing Ashbury in the Junior School. The first winner of the Shield was John Turner, presently Minister of Justice. This year's winner is Chris Teron. Stephen Clifford came to Ashbury in April, 1969 to complete Grade 7. He fitted so admirably into our school life that he was appointed a Monitor the following year. Stephen was killed in a tragic accident just before his return to Ashbury in September, 1970. The Memorial Cup is awarded to the boy who has made the greatest contribution to his House, and is a fitting memorial to one who himself made such a fine contribution to Ashbury. The first winner of the Cup is Mark Josselyn, Captain of the Hobbits. THE POETRY READING CONTEST As with the Public Speaking contest, interest was so wide spread among our poetry readers that class eliminations had to be held to reduce the finalists to a manageable number. On the day of the event our judges, Dr. Spencer and Mr. Babbitt were presented with the following slate of contestants: Blake and Hall II from Form I; Ablack and Tkachuk from Form II; Scott and McKenna from Form III; Rosen and Pimm from Form III A; Belding and Stenger from Transitus; Babbitt and Josselyn from Transitus A. The final decision was a difficult one to make as one of the judges had a natural reluctance to give his son the top marks which were obviously merited. A third opinion was provided and the judges were persuaded to give unani- mous approval to Babbitt as the winner. Honourable mention went to Rosen, last year's winner, and to Hall II and Belding. THE M.L.T.S. TRIPS Relaxation. That was what made the exam week so pleasant for those of us who were fortunate enough to have reached an M.L.T.S. of 80%. While the other poor juniors were sweating away in Argyle writing exams during the day and sweating away in the evenings preparing for the next day's exams we were relaxing. On the first day Mr. Beedell took us to the Dustbane Company for an interesting look at their many operations. In the afternoon we were going to go to Parliament, but we never did quite make it in a group. Several boys did attend the sessions on their own. The following exam day we did this: In the morning, a two and a half hour game of softball; in the afternoon Mr. Humphreys took us to the Air Museum. On the third day of exams we went to play miniature golf. Mr. Tottenham took us on that trip. On the last day Mrs. Teron had invited us to her cottage. We were all looking forward to the trip and certainly had a lot of fun. I hanks to many cooperative masters we had a really great time during exam week. 72 THE PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST A great deal of interest was aroused when this competition was announced and it was found necessary to have Form eliminations to come up with a final slate of 6 contestants. The finalists were Belding. Brodie, Brookes, Carson, Johnston and Spencer. Belding presented a relaxed and amusing account of the danger from pickpockets, particularly in Columbia. Brodie gave an interesting talk on E.S.P. with specific examples of this phenomenon. Brookes told of the ways of keeping healthy. His talk was amusing, and showed careful research. Carson talked on humour, and his several examples of the subject brought many laughs. Johnston told of a personal experience with a friend whose interest was chemistry. Judging from this account we are fortunate to have him still with us. Spencer's talk covered the sweep of Ancient Greece, its history and culture. In the opinion of the judges Johnston won the competition, although all contestants were congratulated on their high standard of speaking. Johnston went on to further honours, as he entered the city competition and won third place in a group of about 40 other finalists. Mark Josselyn THE TRIP TO AMHERST On Friday, March 12. three Ashbury hockey teams set out by bus for Amherst. Mass., U.S.A. We started just after noon and stopped for a hurried dinner in Albany. We arrived in Amherst at about 9:30 that evening. We were then paired off and went to sleep at the houses of the boys on the opposing teams. Our hosts were very kind. Next morning most of the boys went around the town of Amherst looking at universities, stores, schools, etc. Then in the afternoon we went to play hockey. The Ashbury under 12 team played first and were defeated. The under 14 team played next and the game ended up tied. The senior team then played and that game also ended in a tie. After the hockey games we were treated to a glorious banquet dinner and we were also given life memberships in the Amherst Hockey Association. The next morning we played again. This time our under 14 team won its game, but the under 12 team was defeated. Our hosts provided us with lunches and we set out for home. En route we had dinner at a Howard Johnsons and got back to Ashbury quite late. I think everyone had a terrific time. Apart from the thrill of playing unknown teams, we were exposed to a wonderful group of people, increased our knowledge of the U.S.A., and learned just a little bit more about how to handle new situations. The trip was a success. George Marsden 73 THE WASHINGTON TRIP — May 18-21 The Washington trip was the fifth annual excursion the Junior School has made. Montreal, Quebec, New York and Toronto have been the cities visited in other years. All of the school trips have been complete successes. Here is my account of the visit to Washington. We left Ashbury at about 10:00 a.m. on May 18. We stopped at a side rest area for box lunches, then continued down through the coal country to Harrisburg, Pa. where we stopped for dinner. We arrived at the Ambassador Hotel in Washington that evening just in time to watch the last period of the final game of the Stanley Cup. At 8 o'clock on the morning of our first day in Washington we arrived at the side entrance of the White House. A special tour had been arranged for this early hour. To give you an idea of the age of the White House, it wasn't finished at the time of the inauguration of George Washington as the first president of the United States, but it was completed by the time John Adams, the second president, was sworn in. On our tour of the White House we started in the East Wing, which is the most recent addition to the White House. First we entered an oval shaped room looking out on the south side where the President usually greets his guests. Next was the Green Room, used as a sitting room. It had a beautiful marble mantle, a nice clock and a big impressive chandelier. Then we went into the Red Room. Here are many portraits of the presidents. Here also are pictures of Dolly Madison and Mrs. Kennedy. Then we walked into the state dining room where formal dinners are held and the President holds his press conferences. What I saw of the White House impressed me very much. After the White House we walked to the Aquarium. There we found many interesting things. None of the fish were very new to me because I had already seen most of them before in other Aquariums, including killer whales. After this we went to the Washington Monument. We went up in an elevator, and most of us walked down the approximately 450 steps. After we were all assembled in our groups again we walked to the Museum of History and Technology. We saw lots of very interesting things. One was a large steel ball attached to a long thin wire. The ball swayed from side to side and every hour would knock over 8 little blocks placed on a large circumference around the ball. Our next visit was to the Museum of Natural History which was next door. These two museums are part of the Smithsonian complex. Here we saw some very interesting exhibits, including the famous jewels "The Star of India*' and the "Hope Diamond". We had lunch in the Museum cafeteria and were joined by our guides. Then we walked to the Capitol. It was very hot that day and everyone found it a long and tiring walk. We went into the rotunda. Then we went through a long corridor which had beautiful paintings on the ceiling and on the walls. We were able to see the Senate in session. Hubert Humphrey was there but unfortunately Mr. Agnew was not presiding that day. One of the page boys was a page girl. After the Capitol we got into our buses and drove to Arlington Cemetery. On our way we stopped at the Lincoln Memorial, and passed close to the Jefferson Memorial. Both of them I had already seen. In the cemetery we saw John Kennedy's grave and the site for Robert Kennedy's future grave, which is now marked only with a white cross. Then we saw the tombs of the 74 three Unknown Soldiers, one from the 1st World War, one from the 2nd World War. and the third from the Korean War. After this the buses drove us back to the hotel for a swim and relaxation. Later the buses drove us to Maryland for a good steak dinner. We went to bed after that. On the morning of the second day we got up later mainly because we had more time on our hands. We walked to the National Geographic Society where we heard interesting things through microphones. Most of these were concerned with expeditions which the Society had sponsored, for example Scott's adventures in the Antarctic. After this we were driven to the Department of Engraving and Printing where all the bank notes are made. Everyone's eyes were bulging just watch- ing those sheets of notes being printed. Then we walked to the Smithsonian Institute to see the different kinds of aeroplanes, space craft and other things. It was most interesting and exciting. After this we had lunch at Russler's Steak House. After lunch we went on an F.B.I, tour which had been arranged for us by Marion's father. We saw laboratories, pictures of different criminals and the scenes of their crimes. Finally we had a demonstration with a revolver and a sub-machine gun. At the end of that tour we had free time for two hours. We went to dinner at a very nice restaurant called the ''Bull 'n Bear '. From there we walked to Fords Theatre where Lincoln was killed by John Wilkes Booth. We saw the play, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown''. Then we drove in the bus all night to get to Ottawa. As soon as I got home my mother and I went up to our summer cottage for the long weekend. As soon as we got there I slept for about five hours because I was so exhausted. John Coyne 75 'Hi f ■ ~mm^^^'. ' m | -** B : ■ I THE CHESS TOURNAMENT The 12th Annual Junior School Chest Tournament (as Mr. Polk insisted on calling it) attracted a great deal of interest. Almost three-quarters of the Junior School entered the tournament, which must surely be a record. To give added interest this year an Ashbury chess team from Grades 5 and 6 competed against those Grades at Rockcliffe Park Public School. We had several individual triumphs but were defeated as a team. Wait till next year! Here are the results of all the games played.

I had to turn my sleeping bag inside out, attach a piece of cord and turn it back rightside in. The next day I was driven to school by my Dad. I gathered all my gear together and entered one of the two buses. We were dropped off at a little dirt road after a short drive. Shouldering our packs we started our hike. After about a mile of walking up hill my back began to get sore and my pack to get heavy. Adding to the agony, my socks had fallen down and there was some water in my boots. After crossing a field we entered a forest. Then we came to a low area filled with water. The water was about two feet deep, and a lot of it was added to my boots. Next we started an exhausting climb up rugged hills. Some hills were so steep you could, with heavy packs, walk straight up, but still touch the ground with your hands. Finally we reached camp. There was no time to rest for meals had to be cooked and tents put up. We split up in groups, Seniors, Juniors, and the girls from Elmwood. Our sector, the Juniors, soon got a fire going and then we started to cook our meals. We were given packets of meat, dehydrated beans, corn and mashed potatoes. Newbergher was carefully putting his stuff into separate pots when Mr. Humphreys came along and dumped everything into one pot. Almost everyone was watching his meal cook with anticipation. I was looking at it with apprehension. I managed to wash away the taste of this mixture with water from the nearby lake. The rest of the evening was spent washing pots and pans. Sgt. Evans, one of the army men at the camp told us that our sleeping bags would keep us warm for 7 hours in -70° weather. My feet were cold all night. Next morning there was ice on the lake. For breakfast we had dehydrated scrambled eggs and bacon. After cleaning up we started on our last lap. This walking was not as tough because I didn't have to carry a 20-pound sleeping bag. We ate lunch prepared by the Elmwood girls. Eventually we got to a dirt road. Just a mile down the road was the spot where the buses would pick us up. When I arrived at the spot I fell on what felt like rubber legs. So ended the camping trip. It was a good experience and I learned a lot about living in the bush, even if it was a tough trip. In two days the group covered 22 miles of rugged bush in snow, sleet, wind, rain and fog. Perhaps I am destined to be a post man when I grow up! Iain Johnston JUNIOR SCHOOL SAILING Again this year the Ashbury sailors arrived at Lakefield feeling extremely confident of a successful day of sailing ahead. On Saturday morning we awoke to a beautiful cloudless day, but there was no wisp of wind. Undaunted, the sailing races, or should I say the drifting races, started against such notable schools as Ridley, Hillfield, Crescent and of course our host Lakefield. The lack of wind was against us and in the morning we had sailed only two out of the four races. In the afternoon we managed to complete the full slate of races but unfortunately we came last. My hat comes off to Mike Kemper (skipper), Bruce Anfossie (crew) and Bill Fuller (crew). They all did a tremendous job considering the conditions. Despite our lowly position we all had a most enjoyable trip. T. C. Tottenham 80 JUNIOR SCHOOL SPORTS SOCCER The Soccer Team this year played very well. We went on several excursions out of town in addition to playing quite a few games at home. The success of the team was a result of the combined efforts of all the players, but special mention should be made of Mark Josselyn's consistent goal keeping and Blaine Johnsons scoring ability. The overall standings show that this year was one of our better ones. Wins Losses Ties Points 6 1 1 13 As we were able to win 13 points out of a possible 16 everyone was content with the season as a whole. Ron Carson THE JUNIOR SOCCER TEAM Back Row: M. H. E.

Ablack. 82 CROSS COUNTRY As in other years, the grueling cross country running took place at Ashbury with Farquhar leading the pack. Although Dowling ran the fastest time recorded for the 2-1/2 mile course, 14 , 49 , \ Farquhar won the cross country championship and rightly earned his title "The Flying Ferd". In an inter-school meet at Greenbank Public School, our senior runners came in third out of ten schools which is excellent for such a small school with no girls. Mr. Flynn reckons that if Ashbury ran with Elmwood in outside competition we would do even better. In our own Meet, the results were as follows: AGE 1st 2nd 3rd 13 yrs. Farquhar Dowling Carson 12 yrs. Beedell Babbitt Thompson 10 yrs. Flynn Blake Puttick As a whole the school did very well, and I am proud to say that "Fearless Fred" almost broke 20 minutes on the 2-1/2 mile run. Jeff Beedell VOLLEYBALL During the Winter Term a volleyball team was formed under the direction of Mr. Babbitt. The boys were very enthusiastic and after many practices the team entered a local tournament. They won their first game, making them eligible for the Cup, but were eliminated on the second round. The boys returned to Ashbury quite happy with their performance. The short season proved to be most enjoyable for all including Mr. Babbitt, whose enthusiasm spurred the team to quite good efforts.

The highlight was probably our trip to Amherst. Mass. Our senior team won one and tied one. The junior team« lost both their games. What made the trip so pleasant was the fantastic hospitality. Another trip was to Lakefield with both teams, and this time we made a clean sweep. We also won at Sedbergh and we came back to have hot chocolate and doughnuts. We ended the season quite well because we were playing much better. David Babbitt SOFTBALL This year has been really great for softball. The draft "Dodger" called Red proved quite valuable to the team. The batting of the team was fairly good at the start, and we all improved as the season went on. I think our happiest win was against the teachers. For once we could put "them" in their place! I myself had a great time playing the games and going to L.C.C.. and I know everyone else on the team felt as I did. The people at L.C.C. were very nice to us even though we won. It is too bad the season had to end so soon: everyone wishes he could have played more. Ron Carson JUNIOR SOFTBALL TEAM Back Row: M. H. E. Sherwood. Esq., C. J. Veilleux, P. J. Bowley, K. S. Belding.

In spite ftf the excellent job of organizing that Mr. Flynn did we lost by a score of 84-22. Our best player, Johnson, was missing for the game. Three days later we played a return match with Sedbergh on our home grounds. Bad luck was with us and the final score was 76-37. On our trip to Lakefield we were missing Kemper and Sanderson. Here the score was 119-28. It is too bad we didn't win a game; however the team had great fun this year. The top scorers were Johnson and Harcourt, and our bowlers were Johnson, Belding and Paterson.

THE TRACK MEET A glorious sun was smiling on the Ashbury grounds on the day of our annual Junior School Track Meet. Every boy in the school had entered his name for at least one of the events except for those few whose broken legs were still knitting after the ski season. Every member of the staff was pressed into willing service as starter, timer, judge or recorder. There was full Junior School participation and the day provided a most happy break during exam- ination week. The morning and afternoon events were run off with the precision always provided by Mr. Anderson's organization. At the end of the Meet, ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners were graciously presented by three Junioi parents, Mrs. Belding. Mrs. Farquhar and Mrs. Josselyn. 86 Here are the results: EVENT 10 yrs. 11 yrs. 12 yrs. 13 yrs. 60 yards 1. 2. 3. Mierins Stuart Magner 100 yards 1. 2. 3.

I dressed hurriedly, jumped through the window, grabbed hold of a branch, swung onto a platform I had built for this purpose, then slid down the trunk. Telling my Father I was going, and calling my dog, I set off towards the pond. Amber, my dog, and I raced through the dew drenched clover which covered the trail to the spring-fed pond. After a refreshing dip I returned to a delicious breakfast of porridge, pancakes and maple syrup. The syrup had the added flavour of my hard work, as I had collected the sap from our bush and had helped Mother many nights over the black pots of boiling, bubbling sap. Breakfast finished, I loaded my musket and went off hunting with Amber. By noon I had reached the quota for our larder of three rabbits, two geese and one duck. This would have been completed earlier if Amber had not announced our presence with his loud, excited barks. After a lunch of cold turkey. I headed for home. Rounding a boulder I realized I had gone in a circle and was now on the crest of a hill high above the farm. I could see Father plowing the garden, holding tightly to the ploughs handles, as Jimmy, our reliable work horse, stepped gingerly around the stumps and rocks. Mother, I could see, was scrubbing the clothes over the washboard in the large wooden tub. My sister was sitting on the rail fence cleaning lamps. I picked my way carefully down the hill. Dad told me to chop firewood, while he skinned the catch. We had a tasty rabbit stew for supper, and for dessert we had roasted acorns. After supper, as Dad read to us from Pilgrim's Progress, Mother patched my torn breeches, Jennie, my sister, listened sleepily by the fire with her cat. and I made round shot for my musket. The dying embers signalled bedtime. I climbed the ladder to the loft and crawled sleepily under my eider down, filled with goose feathers. As I snuggled down I wondered if the feathers in my quilt were from the geese I had shot last year. Just before I fell asleep I dreamily asked myself what boys would be doing one hundred years from now, in 1971. I didn't suppose there would be much change. W. Johnston THE FUNNY CLOWN There was a funny clown, Whose face was very brown. And his hair was white. And his eyes were bright. And his hat was blue. Stuck on with glue. And his nose was green, Like you've never seen. That funny brown clown. Mark Richter Form I 88 LIFE S EMBARRASSING MOMENTS Because we are all human, we are all subject to making mistakes, and often find ourselves in embarrassing situations. I, too, am fallible, and in the following paragraphs are some events which made me turn quite red at the time. Arriving home after a very muddy game of soccer, I went upstairs to have a bath. After I had thoroughly cleaned myself, I got out of the tub, dried, and went to my bedroom. As it was late I decided to put on my pyjamas then. After searching for all of 20 seconds I decided that I couldn't find them, so I ran down naked to the sitting room to ask my mother where they were. On entering I got quite a shock — and from the look on her face, so did Mrs. Joyce. On another occasion I was walking the dog with a couple of friends. Toby was not on a leash and felt the need to attend to a natural urge. Before I could stop him. he had used someone's front lawn for his purposes. The owner of the house stepped outside, and I was extremely nervous. The man said, "Thank you. but we don't need any today!" and with that he handed me a shovel much to the amusement of my friends. The last school at which my father taught had a firing range, which was nearly always in use, for I saw boys going to and from it all the time. One day I decided to go inside for surely no boys would object to a four year old taking a look around their shooting range. I ran in yelling, "Hold it, hold it! Don"t shoot!" and then ran straight out for who was inside but the Head- master showing a few guests around the school. Another very embarrassing moment for me was when a teacher told me to go and fetch some chalk from Mr. Sherwood's office. I went out to get it, but when I knocked there was no answer. I returned to class empty handed. The teacher told me to just barge into the office and pick up the chalk. When I knocked on the door a second time there was still no answer, so in I walked. What do you suppose I saw? Mr. Sherwood was standing over a boy bran- dishing a cane! I grabbed the chalk and exited fast, only to be asked what had taken me so long. These are just a few of my life's embarrassing moments, but I'll bet that any one of us unfortunately has had enough to fill a book, and by the time we die a second volume would be well filled. No matter how hard we try to guard against these situations, they frequently occur and we must make an effort not to be too sensitive at these times. M. Josselyn FANTASY Out in the Wilderness. Out in the trees. Out comes a rabbit Running on its knees. Out in the meadow, Out in the stream. Out jumps a fish In the middle of a dream. Ted Ligthart Form II 89 IF ONLY I WERE A TYPHOON PILOT It was midsummer 1943 and all was going well for the Allies. Another plane and I were winging our way over the choppy Channel on a night patrol. Suddenly I spotted a German E-boat nosing its way out of a bay on the French coast. The bright moonlight illuminated the E-boat and I could see that they had spotted us already. I cried out, "Talley-ho! , \ and flung the Typhoon into a vicious dive. My plane plummeted downwards and the E-boat was right in my sights when I let loose a salvo of 3-inch rockets at it. There was a huge explosion as the rockets slammed home. When the smoke cleared we saw that the E-boat had capsized. My partner lobbed his missies into the flaming wreck and we notified the sea rescue chaps to pick up any survivors. We turned around and headed for home before the whole Luftwaffe got on our tails. When we got back to our base we agreed to share our kill and when we made our report to the C. 0., we were credited with half a boat each. I went to my room and caught a few hours sleep. In the morning we were called to the briefing room. I grabbed a piece of toast on the way. In the briefing room we were told we were going to escort some American bombers on a raid against St. Nazaire in France. When the briefing was over I walked to my Typhoon, "Tiger Tiffie". The armourers were standing in line waiting to put the belts of ammunition into the 4 20 m.m. cannon. I got onto the wing and climbed into the cockpit. I sat down and admired the sleek way the plane was put together. All around the airfield, engines were sputtering into life. A few minutes later we were in the air. Half way across the Channel we met up with the Yanks. They were thundering majesticly across the sky in grand procession leaving their white streaming contrails behind them. We got into escort formation above and behind. It was hard to keep at the same speed as the bombers as they were flying so slowly. As we crossed the French coast I suddenly noticed enemy fighters coming up to intercept us. They came closer and we were ordered to take up battle formation. Then the Folke-Wulfs attacked. We scattered, picking out our victims. I dived on the one with the yellow spinner. The crosshairs on my gunsight slid onto the fusilage of his plane. I pulled the trigger and held it back for five gruelling seconds. Suddenly the plane turned into a flaming mass of metal. It blew up in mid air. Mr. Babbitt repeated, "Where's your prep?" My dream shattered. I returned to the reality of an English class at Ashbury, but it was many minutes before I was really able to unscramble the Germans from the Grammar. Simon Jones Form IIIA A WINTER HOME When a bunny finds a passage in a lumber stack. He hides there for warmth against the snow. But in summer when the work men all come back.

Michael O'Meara Form II 90 SMAUG THE DRAGON The lonely mountain of the dell; The lifeless city in the dell, Mark the home of the dragon bold, The stories of which have often been told. And down there on the lake, A merry city lies at stake, Because of the dragon This terrible dragon Who killed their ancestors years ago. Then one happy night of the feast. Through the sky came the terrible beast. "It's SmaugP* they screamed in terror, "The dragon!" And every guard, he dropped his flagon, And picked up his weapon to fight. No words can describe that terrible night Against the dragon This terrible dragon Who killed their ancestors years ago. Then, when all seemed at a loss, Bard, their leader and fighting boss Saw the patch that was unsealed. And shot an arrow, while people quailed. And from the sky the dragon fell. To go and pay his debt in Hell. Smaug the dragon This terrible dragon Who killed their ancestors years ago. Hugh Heaton Form III CROWS I think crows are one of the nicest birds. They are big and black. Farmers hate them because they go into their fields and eat the corn. This makes the farmers very mad at them. Then the farmers shoot them. I became very interested in catching a crow. I knew where they were nesting. That gave me a head start on them. I made many trips to the woods where they were nesting and I kept finding feathers. One night my Dad and I were walking through a big clump of trees. It was such a big clump that it was easier for us to split up to look for the baby crows. About five minutes later my Dad called me over. He had found a baby crow sitting on a branch high up in the tree. I ran home and got my brother to help us. My brother could not climb the tree because the branches were too weak, so I climbed up and tried to catch the baby crow. It was very hard but I caught him. I brought him home and put him in a cage and left him alone for the night. The next day he was calm. That is my story. Richard Harwood Form I 91 A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE The year is 1981. The day is Tuesday, January 21st, and all is not well. Is the world perfect with no wars, no pollution, no population problem? No way! The world is all war, and nothing but. How it started, few people know, and nobody really cares. But whatever did cause the war set all the continents on fire. For some strange reason the struggle is between the continents of Africa and the Americas on one side, against Australia and Europe. There is bitter civil war in Asia. Antarctica alone seems to have avoided the conflict. There is a long story leading up to the blood bath, and I do not have the space to give you the details, but I will tell you this: War has cut the growing population from 7 billion to 3 billion in two years. No more is science devoted to solving the mysteries of earth and space; now every experiment is devoted to war; constant, bloody, merciless war. In 1981 binoculars are not used for watching nature, as once was the case. They are now used only in sighting the enemy. School has changed, too. Instead of learning that one apple plus one apple equals two apples, students are taught that one H-bomb plus one H-bomb equals fallout. The war has affected everything. Instead of, say, the Orr- Walton hockey camp, youngsters now attend the Agnew-Nixon war camp. Nothing is untouched by this inter-continental war. Nobody lives in houses any more. Everybody inhabits bomb shelters instead. Because of the war there are very few trees and plants left. To someone who remembers the ways of peace, this war is extremely sickening. However we are really in 1971 and all these events will not take place for 10 years, so live it up while you can. Shaun Belding Transitus IF ONLY The highwaymen had taken him into their hideout and had taught him the bad ways of life. He was a good boy at heart though, always oking on the bright side of things, even when his band was in trouble. Then one day, his good intentions went too far and misled him to Doom. He met a girl on his rovings (a habit of his, roving) and she told him she was taking the noon stage to Dover, which was carrying twenty thousand pounds worth of gold and silver. The boy soon saw that his duty to God was great, and that he wouldn't tell the thieves of his discovery. This was a sound decision, but unfortunately a thief had overheard the conversation and he scuttled off to tell the chief of the thieves. Because of this, not only was the noon stage robbed, but every man, woman and child aboard it was killed. The coach was burned and the horses were captured by the thieves for future use. The thieves soon revealed to the lad what they knew, and said he would die. "Leave it until dawn," said he. He pleaded so hard that the pirates finally consented to kill him on the morrow at dawn. 92 That night the poor lad couldn't sleep. He lay awake, listening to the sounds of night, — to the sound of mice's feet on the wainscot, of the tired twittering of the birds as they bedded down for the night, in their nests on the eaves. The air smelled fresh and purifying to the body, the body which lay half afraid, half sad. All too soon it was dawn. Then it hit that simple minded boy. that this was God's show, His festival. His parade, His ceremony, His celebration. The light came pouring through the air, causing birds to twitter and sing and triggering bees to hum and to suck sweet nectar artfully, cheekily from the flowers. The trees seemed greener than usual, the air fresher. It was too good a morning to die. He ate his porridge for breakfast, his last and most delicious meal, the oats and salt going splendidly with the milk and sugar. Afterwards a black cloth was tied around his eyes, his hands were bound, and he was ready, ready to die. "If only I didn't have to die, if only I could live longer, if only . . . ." he thought. "Bang!!" The echo carried and died away. Everything started swimming wildly, he could hear a cry of pain, perhaps it belonged to him. Finally every- thing faded and then went black. The next things he saw were the golden gates of heaven, waiting as it seemed, with outstretched arms, and with a promise of a blessed contentment that he had so seldom known in life. P. Deepan TEN YEARS FROM NOW This is the year 1981. I am still attending the University of Stockholm for personal reasons. I spent last summer in Ottawa and the changes were remark- able. Jacques Rose is now Prime Minister of Canada. Right now Mr. Rose is on a tour of Communist countries and is presently in the United States. During the absence of Mr. Rose, Mr. Hughy Newton, late of the Black Panthers, is acting Prime Minister. I took a trip to Ashbury College but was unable to get in. A National Guardsman told me the students were rioting, and the Guardsmen were surrounding the school. After that I looked up some old friends. Babbitt had had an operation on his ears and looked quite good. He is married to Sarah Farquhar with two sons. Blaine Johnson has arthritis and is unable to walk. I was surprised to see Josselyn on Welfare — he was so promising at school. He told me Ray was running for Prime Minister of India. I found the population had increased enormously. Ottawa is practically on the outskirts of Montreal. The hippies are gone with all their beads and hair. Drugs are also gone, since they've been legalized. I was happy to see there was no pollution (since there was nothing else to pollute). I went to see "Oh Bombay" at the Arts Centre and had a frightful experience. The whole cast was fully clothed. Shocking way to act. All the good old movies are back this time on television ( Candy, Fanny Hill and the rest). I went to see the movie "Jumbo the Flying Elephant". This movie was banned in Sweden. I suppose there will be a few more changes in the next ten years. Richard Robertson Transitus A 93 MY ADVENTURE Hello, my name is Tiny and I am going to tell you about one of my adventures. Of course, I was a stupid little puppy at that time and didn't know better than to get lost. This is how it happened. It was a bright and sunny day and I decided to explore the land around me. I headed toward a path which was well known to my friends to be very adventurous. This proved to be true as you will see. I was walking along the path very quietly. All was still except for birds twittering and the usual small noises that you hear in the forest. Suddenly I smelt something unusual and I decided to find out about it. I dived into the forest with a feeling of curiosity. To my amazement I found nothing. It took me nearly an hour to find the path again. When I found the path again, I promised myself not to leave it. I had been walking steadily for an hour when out jumped a rabbit and I took off after it. It was a long chase and I was the one to give up first. When I was chasing the rabbit, I did not think where I was going. I was deep in the forest and it was getting late. I wished I had never decided to explore, but it was too late now. I learned later that my master, Norman Wilcher, had become very worried. He got ready to take a trip to the O.H.S. When he got there he asked if there were any reports of a black and white beagle. When they said no, he asked if they would organize a search for him. They very graciously said yes and started right away. It was a long time before I got up and started to find the path. I went in three directions and then headed west. I was on a path I didn't recognize when suddenly something came running noisily behind me. I didn't wait to see what it was but jumped off the path down a slope and landed on a pile of leaves. Luckily the unknown animal could not get down the slope. I ran as fast as I could until I reached a cleared area and flopped down. The O.H.S. had now found some clues as to where I had gone. They had found the path which I had travelled on. I got up and started to walk, when through the trees I recognized the path which I had travelled at the beginning. I now knew that I had gone around in a circle. I started to run because I knew this would lead me home. When I was too exhausted to run any more, I lay down and rested. Then, around the corner came two men. They saw me and picked me up. They were taking me home. When we got home my master thanked them very much. I was never going on an adventure again. MR POLK Mr. Polk teaches folk, And he also likes to smoke. But when the smoke Goes down his throat, It makes him choke, And that's no joke. It could be the end of Mr. Polk. Ken Carre Form II 94 THE UNDERSEA WORLD Oh, the splendour of it all, Oh, the glory of it all. Oh, the majesty and bubbling waste of it all. The corals, the reefs Perfect as the sweep Of the sea. The oysters, the pearls, The clams and the swirls Of the sea. An eternity of sand Made by God's own hand. Touch the wet miracle Of the sea. And yet as it flows In its underwater shoals In its nooks and crannies all. A single sprinkled light From an oyster's shimmery white Glows in the inky fluid Of the sea. And the pearl's glowing white Brightens darkest night The radiance will call. And I again recall A vision Of the sea. Jeff Rosen IIIA MY LOST PET One day I was at a football game, that is my dog and I. I take my dog with me everywhere I go. We were at the Grey Cup in Toronto. When the game ended everybody rushed out the doors. My dog was not on a leash and I lost sight of him. I looked everywhere but I just couldn't find him. I hailed a taxi to drive around the city in search of my lost doggie. After a couple of hours of no luck I paid the driver, bought some candy, and took an O.T.C. bus home. As I looked out the window I ... I saw my lost doggie. I asked the driver to stop, but it was right in the middle of the highway. When I got off all I could see was a bunch of cars. I walked 14 miles, after which I headed for home, which was 6 miles away. The next morning I phoned the Toronto pound. They said that they did not have a dog that matched the description I gave. I went through the same routine as I had the day before. Just to make sure. I hailed a taxi and drove a little bit out of the city because you never know where dogs can go. Suddenly I said. "There he is! Stop the cab!" The first thing I saw when I got out of the car was the dog catcher and his net. He scooped up doggie and put him into the truck. I followed the truck to the pound, picked up doggie, and drove happily home. Blair Stuart Form I 95 FORM NOTES TRANSITUS A My best friend stands first in his class. He has ninety percent; whilst, alas, With my feeble brain, All I can attain Is a mark or two better than pass. There's an unco-ordinated boy named Tom Who went to the Senior Prom. He tried to dance, But tripped on his pants; Out the door he went like a bomb. There once was a boy named Dave Who did not like to behave. Though he improved a little, He still was too fickle, And dirty looks to the teachers he gave. There was a boy named the Beetle, Who was savagely pricked by a needle. He cried out in anguish For a band-aid and sandwich. Now the Beetle is in fine feetle. I am a boy named Pete. I sit in the very last seat. I sleep all the day; No work and all play. To get to Grade 9 will be sweet. There once was a boy in 8A, Who decided to work one fine day. Though he found it depressing, It soon was obsessing, And now that boy's in 9A. There was a young laddie named Ron, Whose hair grew consistently long. Though he liked it that way Mr. Sherwood did say His attitude completely wrong. I'm a young lad in Trans A, Who tends to day-dream all the day. I sit quietly snoring, The teachers imploring, For a little more work and less play. John Arnold Tom Assaly Dave Babbitt Jeff Beedell Peter Bowley Ian Burke-Robertson Ron Carson Bruce Chick 96 There was a young boy from down under, Who made all geologists wonder. He dug a deep hole, With a very short pole, And journeyed from winter to summer. There once was a boy named The Cake, Who wished only to swim in the lake. But there came by one day A dismaying relay, And so his exams he must take. There is a boy named Mark, To Ridley next year will embark. HeTl no longer be here. There'll go up a great cheer, Because he became quite a Narc. There once was a boy in Grade 8. Whose brother he tended to hate. The next thing I know. He'll still be my foe, For Grade 9'ers the seniors will bait. Adrian Conway Blaine Johnson Mark Josselyn Michael Lynch-Staunton There once was a school boy named Matt, Who wasn't too bad with a bat. When it came to his books. He got curious looks. For doing his prep on a hat. Matthew Marion 97 There was a lad from the Park, Who arrived in the town via Carp, He said, "T am sure, Mr. Trudeau is pure, But I'm not quite so sure about Sharp." George McKenna There once was a boy named Ten-Ton, Who never quite got his work done. He said in dismay, As he munched away, To eat is more fun than to run. Robert Pelcis There once was a youngster named Ray, Who did nothing all day but play, When it came to his test, He did not do his best, And so now he studies all day. Arindam Ray Robertson would like to pass math, But he causes his teachers great wrath, It seems he can't win, First Mrs. Babbitt, then Flynn, From both he has taken a bath. Richard Robertson It's true that prep I ignore, I find the whole matter a bore. Like to enjoy myself, Not to destroy myself. It'll never be "Prep I adore.'" Peter Steacy I'm a boy in the Junior School, Where nothing is really too cruel. At first I was dumb, Then things started to come. I'll be first in the Senior School. (Maybe!) Chris Teron This crazy 8th grader named Tross Remarked, "I'll show them who's boss." Over moguls and snow bumps, Skied backwards down ski jumps, So Tross ended up a dead loss.
