DURING Inspection of the Guard of Honour, 

Prize Day, June 17th, 1941 


IN order to direct the course of our lives to-day it is necessary to con- 
' sider even our trivial affairs with respect to world events. For this 
reason not even the editorial of a School magazine would be adequately 
expressed unless the life of the School was portrayed in relation to the 
war. Although we should not let unexpected victories or defeats cause 
us to be slack at our present job, yet we must not forget that our Empire is 
fighting a life and death struggle with a powerful enemy. It is up to each 
one of us to do his utmost to insure final victory for the democracies. For 
us who are still at School that utmost is to work hard at cur studies, to 
play hard at our games, and to sacrifice some of our pleasures in order to 
contribute materially to the war effort. During the last nine months the 
boys of St. Andrew's have kept these points in mind and the result has 
been a thoroughly successful year. The academic standing is still remark- 
ably high and although some of our teams have not been as successful as 
last year's, yet the same spirit has pervaded the School. The most direct 
way in which we helped the war effort was by a War Savings Campaign 
carried on in the School under the direction of Mr. Wright and Mr. Ives. 
Exactly two thousand dollars was invested in War Savings Stamps this 
year at St. Andrew's. One thousancl dollars of this was invested since 
February, 1941. It is hoped that this saving will coiitiiuie thnnigh the 
summer holidays for at no time has Canada needed the money more urgently 
than now. 

In addition to these investments the School has given $125 to the Cana- 
dian Red Cross, $125 to the Canadian War Services Funcl. .\nd a total sum 


14 St. Andrew's. College Review 

of $200 to the St. Andrew's College War Fund. This last mentioned Fund 
has been augmented also by the Ladies' Guild and The Old Boys' Associa- 
tion, and provides cigarettes and other comforts for Andreans on Active 
Service Overseas. Forty dollars has also been contributed since Christmas 
toward the Bolton Camp Fund of the Neighbourhood Workers Association. 

This sum includes twenty-five dollars from Chapel Collections. 

* * * 

It is with sincere rejjret that we have learned of the departure of several 
members of the stafif Ims year. After ten years as master-in-charge of 
Physical Education, Mr. M. G. Griffiths is leaving us to take over a posi- 
tion of even greater responsibility. During his years at St. Andrew's Mr. 
Griffiths has developed our whole department of Physical Education to a 
very high degree, and largely on account of this, the sports and games have 
always been enjoyed by the boys. His great organizing ability could hardly 
help but make him a success at any job which he undertakes. If he does as 
much good work in his new position as he has done at St. Andrew's he will 
be rendering a very great service to the advancement of Physical Education 
in Canada. Mr. Griffiths will be missed not only as a valuable master 
but also as a real friend of the boys. And so it is with sorrow that we say 
"farewell" to Mr. Griffiths and his family, wishing them continued happi- 
ness in their new surroundings. 

Another great loss to the School will be Mr. J. B. MilKvard. who has 
been given leave of absence to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. Due to 
his varied interests, Mr. Millward has proved himself to be a very useful 
and valuable master. During his six years at St. Andrew's as head of the 
Department of English he has always had extremely good results. Two 
years ago Mr. Millward was asked to take charge of Macdonald House, and 
with characteristic enthusiasm, he willingly took over this new respon- 
sibility and has made a real success of it. Both he and Mrs. Millward will 
be greatly missed in the Lower School. Mr. Millward has also made a 
wonderful contribution on the athletic side of the School life, having been 
in charge of both the Basketball and the Track and Field Teams. For the 
last two years he has produced Championship Basketball Teams, and this 
spring the members of his Track and Field squad not only broke eleven 
school records on Sports Day but also won the District Championship at 
Lake Couchiching, breaking further records in doing so. We wish Mr. 
Millward every success in the Air Force but we hope that his absence from 
St. Andrew's will be of very short duration. 

We are very unfortunate this year in losing Miss Robertson, the Matron 
of Flavelle and Memorial Houses. For six years she has worked hard 
serving the boys good meals and running the household work of the two 
Houses. Everyone likes Miss Robbie and the School will not seem quite 

St. Ajidrew's College Review 1 5 

the saiiK' withdut her. We sincerely h(.i)e that she will enjoy her new- 
work and will hnd time to pay us frequent visits in the future. 

* ♦ ♦ 

For the last five weeks of the spring term the whcde School was 
genuinely pleased to have Mr. Macrea with us again. Mr. Macrca spent 
this year at Queen's University, proceeding to the Bachelor of Arts degree. 
Besides taking over his former duties in the I^)wer School, Mr. Macrea 
recently became master-in-charge of the First Cricket Team. 

* * * 

The position left open by Mr. Griffiths is being filled by Mr. C. H. 
Sweeney, who has already shown his cai^ability in organizing teams. On 
behalf of the School, the Review would like to congratulate Mr. Sweeney 
on his promotion, and express the belief that the position will be ably filled. 

* * ♦ 

There is a faint rumour that Mr. Wright's bans have been published 
recently. The bride-elect is Miss Constance Pringle. On their return 
this autumn, Mr. Wright will assume the duties of Master in Charge of 
Macdonald House, during the absence of Mr. Milhvard. We wish Mr. 

and Mrs. Wright much happiness in their new adventure. 

* * * 

On behalf of the School, the Review would like to take this opportunity 
of congratulating Mr. and Mrs. Ouchterlony on the birth of a son. whom 
they have named David Powell. 

Further congratulations are due to Mr. Ouchterlony on his recent 

election as President of the Casavant Society of distinguished organists. 

* * * 

From the new body of House Prefects, which Mr. Kr.'fjium instituted 
last autumn, three more School Prefects were chosen during ihc iirst week 
of the Spring Term. These boys were J. E. Kilmer, \^^ A. Cobban, and 
R. L. Graham K. M. Johnston was appointed a House Prefect at the same 
time. * * * 

Toward the close of the Summer Term sixteen of our senior boys left 
the School in order to aid in the production of essential war materials. 
This was done in persuance of the special provisions made by the Depart- 
ment of Education. * * * 

It seems that in every issue of the Review we thank the Ladies' Guild 
for some further generosity to us. This time we would like to express our 
profound appreciation for the gift of four handsome chairs, which further 
enhance the appearance of our attractive library. We give our sjiecial 
thanks to those members and friends of the Guild who did the needle- 
point work on the backs and seats of the chairs. 



St. Andrew's College Review 

If there is anything which could rival in importance the contribution 
which the Guild has made to the Library, it is perhaps the providing of 
Scholarships, and here again the Ladies have come forward with a generous 
gift of $200 to be used as a scholarship "for any deserving boy in attendance 
at the School who, without such assistance, would not be able to complete 
his course." As in former years the Ladies' Guild again came to our 
assistance with a cheque of fifty dollars in the financing of our Cadet Corps 

For all these benefits and for the many other ways in which they show 
their continued interest in St. Andrew's College, we should like to thank 
the Guild most sincerely.

growth that should be cut from the face of the Earth and destroyed ! 

If our civilization is to survive this virulent "cancer", we must have the 
instruments for its destruction ; we must compete with, and outstrip, its 
machine-like efficiency. Since we do not use the peoples of servile states 
in our factories — we must pay for our instruments by lending our govern-

The Effects of tfie War on the Musical 


THE war in Europe has affected practically all realms of art, but it has 
not alTected any more seriously than music. Under the Nazi flag 
none of the great music centres can flourish; the gay notes are not heard 
any more from the famous Paris Opera; Budapest, the great procreator 
of so many fine musicians lies in subjection at the feet of her barbaric 
masters; and Vienna has changed her soft and beloved tones of Strauss 
Waltzes, for the hard notes of Nazi martial music. 

In England, and in Germany herself, music has suffered as a result of 
the war, for the bombing of the churches, and of Westminster, has robbed 
the world of her greatest source of religious music, and the disbanding of 
the Berlin and London symphonies has deprived us of two of our most 
outstanding musical organizations. 

In several other aspects, however, classical music has profited by the 
war. From the war-torn capitals of Europe hundreds of fine instrumental- 
ists and composers have fled to the friendly shores of America, and because 
of this the people of the United States and Canada have become more music 
conscious than ever before. \\'ith the addition of such men institutions 
like the Philadelphia, and Philharmonic symphony orchestras, and the 
Metropolitan Opera have flourished, and have surpassed European 
organizations of their type. 

Although we in America are happy to see so many European geniuses 
filter into our continent, we hope sincerely that Nazi domination of the art 
of music in Europe will soon be broken and that we may again hear the 
Paris Opera, and the sweet notes of a Danube river boat's orchestra play- 
ing The Beautiful Blue Danube.

A Soldier's Dream 

There he stands in the dim gray hglit. 

With his tartan kiUs so gay — 
Tis a martial air he plays on his pipes 

And says farewell to day. 

Next day he's out by a far-off loch 

With other men beside; 
They've mounted a gun for the bombing Hun 

That we may here abide. 

They brought his corse to the wee gray kirk, 

The parson read a prayer: 
But he was away in a beauteous land — 

He found his Master there. 

C. G. Cotter, Form Lower \'I. 

The Air-raid Warden 

When he lifted his eyes to the darkening skies, 

He saw through the misty light 
That a German plane was writing its name 
In a town far away to the right. 

He knew what was hajjpening there : 
The death hurtling down through the air. 
He vowed that as long as his arms were strong 

He would fight till the last was downed. 
He swore by his troth the most terrible oath 
But uttered no further sound. 

Though his courage was frightfully strained 
His unshattered morale remained.

Spring Is Gone 

And so Spring- is gone. 

The chattering httle stream, 

Bringing down the melted, transparent snow, 

Is gone. 

The warm, odorous, squelching mud is gone, 

/\nd the little blood-root. 

Lifting up its head so fragilely, 

So laughingly. 

All are gone. 

And now there is this heat ; 

Heat, peopled with whining mosquitoes ; 

And the green is overdone, 

The green of the trees, the grass, and everything. 

Is overdone. 

Spring is gone. 


Collecting Butterflies 

IT is often said that the things which we notice least contribute most to 
* the beauties of nature. I think this is particularly true in the case of our 
common butterfly. 

The collecting and preserving of these creatures of nature is most inter- 
esting and engrossing. Have you ever given any thought to doing this as a 
hobby? Well this is the way you go about it. 

There are three distinct steps in the collecting and preserving of any 
insect : capturing, killing and mounting. 

The method of capturing these winged beauties is comparatively simple. 
The only necessities are a net of fine mesh about thirty-two inches in length 
with a handle about five feet long, and a quick arm. Armed with this, set 
out in the direction of a flower garden or green fields. It is here that the 
most common types are found. The butterfly is simply scooped up and the 
net turned over so that the insect is captured in the folds of the net. 

The killing agent generally used is cyanide. A few small pieces are 
placed in the bottom of an airtight jar. The butterfly is removed from the 

Sl Andrew's College Review 21 

net, holding it by the undersides of the wings, it is dropped into the jar. 
It is only a matter of a few seconds before the creature is dead. 

Now comes the most delicate and the most important step ; mounting 
the insect. Upon this depends the success of a butterfly collector. An 
incorrectly mounted specimen is valueless and not much to look at. For 
this purpose a soft wood board about five inches with a groove down the 
centre is required. In addition you must have at hand several extremely 
fine pins and strips of paper about half an inch wide. A pin about two 
inches long is thrust through the butterfly's body and, placing its body in 
the groove, the pin is pushed into the soft wood. Now, using a fine pin 
draw its front wings forward till the back of them is at right angles to the 
body. Strips of paper are now placed over the wings on either side and are 
secured by several pins. The antennae is now drawn forward till they 
form a "V with the head. Leave the insect in this position for several 
days till it becomes absolutely rigid. Then remove all the pins and strips 
of paper with the exception of the ])in through the centre of the body. 
Removing it from the board you have a properly stretched butterfly which 
you may place in your case. 

D. S. McGiBBON, Ix)wer VI. 

Oh I am all 
And all am I ;

For I am all

22 St. Andrew's College Review 

The Bahamas 

IN 1492 just eighteen years after he had left Genoa, a man destined to 
change the map of the world was appointed admiral of the then known 
seas. This man was Christopher Columbus. On the memorable Friday 
in August, 1492, he set sail, as he thought, for the Indies in the largest of 
the three ships that accompanied him, the Santa Maria. 

The first landfall was made thirty-five days after leaving the bay of 
Palmas in the Canary Islands ; and thus it was, that on October 12th, 1492, 
the discoverer who has carved his name in the annals of history was the 
first white man to set foot on any of the innumerable islands of the 
Bahamas ; to it he gave the name of San Salvador, which is now known as 
Watling's Island. 

Following in the wake of Columbus came an assorted variety of adven- 
turers and treasure seekers. The first of these were the scum of the Spanish 
sea-ports, only interested in the transportation of the harmless Lucayan 
dwellers that inhabited the islands at that time to the "hell of the gold- 
mines" of Cuba and Espanola, or Haiti as it is now called. By the kind 
permission of King Ferdinand of Spain, this trade was legalized in 1509 
and the indolent brown-skinned natives who would rather die than work, 
were nearly completely exterminated after fifty years of Spanish occupation. 

Meanwhile, in 1512, Ponce de Leon, after his famous search for the 
Fountain of Youth in the Bahamas, turned his energies to the discovery 
of the Southern tip of the North American continent — Florida. Shortly 
following Ponce de Leon, came England's Sir Humphrey Gilbert, who set 
sail in 1579 amply armed with the royal right to "discover, finde, search out 
and view". Unfortunately or otherwise, for the "Isles of June," our 
ambitious Elizabethan adventurer never reached the Bahamas, for. having 
touched at Newfoundland, he died at sea. 

During the era of Charles I, a Bermudian Governor. Captain William 
Sayle, was blown out of his course, and forced to seek refuge in a Bahamian 
creek, thus preserving his life. But Captain. Sayle was not yet free from 
danger, for on leaving his refuge he was again blown back to the Bahamas. 
Thanking Providence for his lucky escape, he sung praises so loudly, that 
the name "New Providence" came into being. Having "thus far so nobly 
advanced", the fame of the Bahamas had now begun to spread to such an 
extent, that in 1649 the first "Elutheran adventurers" succeeded in obtain- 
ing through Parliament the right to settle and colonize any islands in the 
West Indies between the degrees of 24 and 29 north latitudes. These 
adventurers, however, turned out to be little more than criminals, and such 
blood-thirsty tales went back to England, that in 1680 during the reign 

Si. .-liidn'w's College Revieic 23 

of diaries ][ a grant of the Hahamas, >u\\ in theory Spanish, was made 
to several CaroHan^ of good repute. The l)eneficiaries moreover, were 
given the right to make laws to the satisfaction of the free inhabitants. 
Without waiting for permission, the Imperialists appointed a governor who 
arrived in 1670 with high hopes. He was soon disillusioned, however, for 
no sooner had be landed than he was forcibly re-embarked for Jamaica. In 
1684, a demand was made that the Bahamas be cleared of the piracy for 
which it was now famous, for, as the majority of European trade flowed 
Westward, there was never a shortage of Victims. In addition also, were 
the repeated attacks of the Spaniards who sacked New Prtnidence as a 
matter of course. 

The epoch of pirating was indeed well under way. Hlackbeard was the 
foremost of these men whose very names struck terror into the most hardy 
of the Island pioneers. He is supposed to have hidden his ill-gotten gains 
on New Providence, but as yet no one has been able to trace them. Stand- 
ing to-day as a grim reminder, is his look-out tower at the eastern end of 
the Island, which affords an e.xcellent view to all who venture into its 
crumbling structure. 

Among the Governors whose terms were short-lixed in the P>ahamas, is 
Cadwallader Jones, who quarrelled so seriously with his subjects, that they 
threw him into jail. From here he was released by Captain Avery who, for 
his own advantage, contrived to implant in the citizens respect for his 
Majesty's representatives. This particular escapade paid .^,.very "twenty 
pieces of eight and two pieces of gold". 

In addition to Blackbeard, there were a number of other pirates, of 
whom Captain Evans was one ; Sir Henry Morgan, first oh the infamous 
"Brethern of the coast", another. Succeeding Vane, was Rackham. whose 
name connects him with the two women pirates of the day, Mar)- Read, and 
Anne Bonny. The former of whom was in the Bahamas when Captain 
Woodes Rogers offered the King's pardon. She accepted, and sailed again 
as a privateer. The existing difference between a pirate and a privateer, 
was one of minute importance. If caught a pirate was hanged, a privateer 

After his release, Mr. Jones, realizing the res])onsibility of his task 
resigned. His successor, a ^Ir. Trot, was not what could be termed as 
"highly successful". During his stay, "wrecking" flourished and. indeed, 
so did Nassau. Phips, the next in line to be appointed Governor, appre- 
ciating the folly of such an action declined the offer, and submitted the 
position to Mr. Webb. Mr. Webb, an enterprising gentleman, sold his 
ofifice to a mulatto. A Governor. Mr. Hascott, was then sent out to 
reorganize the chaos that existed. In the end. both the luulatto and Hascott 
were imprisoned, and Mr. Lightwood elected. This man's stupiclity was 

24 St. Andrew' s College Review 

incredible, for in spite of the continuous harassing by the Spaniards, he 
allowed the island garrison to wane to such an extent, that they were 
helpless. When again the Spaniards came, after three months, they took 
away every human on the island that they could catch. When the next 
Governor, Mr. Birch, landed, it was upon an absolutely deserted island. 
Birch was the last of thd thirteen unsuccessful Governors that the Crown 
had appointed. They then sent Rogers. 

Woodes Rogers, a reformed pirate, was made Governor of New 
Providence by George I in an efifort of "setting a thief to catch a thief". 
This experiment to a degree was highly successful. Rogers during his 
lifetime had been a very remarkable man. We are told, that on taking up 
his post as Governor, he granted 1.000 pardons, and subsequently hanged 
nine men. This man was exceptional because he survived two terms of 
office, and because in the eleven years of his Governorship, he not only 
created a House of Assembly, but forced the "Brethern of the coast" to 
resort to husbandry. His coat of arms is that which was adopted as the 
Seal of the Colony. 

In 1782 Nassau was captured for the last time by the Spaniards. But 
by the Treaty of Versailles, the Bahamas were ceded to Britain in 1729. 
At the termination of the American \\'ar of Independence there was a great 
influx of United Empire Loyalists into the British islands of the Bahamas. 
They migrated in thousands, bringing all their worldly possession that they 
were able to carry with them. In this way the Bahamas became very rich 
indeed. These Loyalists opposed the Governor of that time, Sir James 
Smythe, in many ways. The foremost of these, was the unlawful slaving, 
that produced labour for the plantation owners, and at the same time was 
exceedingly profitable for those engaged in the trade. Wreckers again came 
into being, but found it more valuable to report slavers, than to partake of 
their own profession. 

The next Governor to try his luck was one Mr. Balfour. He fought 
for the slave rights, but again was not very successful. \Vlien Abolition 
of the slave trade came about in England in 1834, it was not recognized 
in the Bahamas until four years later. Finally, resigned to their fate, the 
planters now deprived of their free labour, left the Islands, giving their 
houses and property to slaves. The slaves who believed that they could 
live wuhout working soon allowed plantations to fall into disuse, and agri- 
culture produce fell to practically "nil". The inhabitants then took to the 
sea for a living. 

W^e now come to the era of the American Civil War. The Confederate 
blockade-runners of the Southern States brought a new prosperity to the 
Bahamas. "The imports which in 1860 did not reach a quarter of a million 
sterling had risen by 1864 to within sight of five and a half millions". At

Islanders fell into their usual indolence. 

In 1921 the Bahamians took to Bootlej^'j^dn^ contrahand liquor to the 
States with a new vigour, thus carrying out their age old ainhition of getting 
rich quickly. It was during this as usual lawless ])eriod. that great changes 
were wrought. Many huildings sprang up. the harhour accommodatif)n 
was vastly improved upon, and other such changes as are still in evidence. 
When at last the Prohibition period came to an end, the Islands continued 
to prosper, tourists began to come in small numbers, and merchants began 
to take their businesses seriously, forgetting that there had ever been a time 
when even their dry-goods had heen used in hack-rooms to cover crates of 
whiskey, gin. and rum. 

The hurricanes of 1926 and 1929 having disposed of the majority of 
flimsy shacks and huts, new huildings greatly resembling American archi- 
tecture came into being. Ever since then Nassau and the Bahamas have 
enjoyed an increasing amount of tourist trade, and in general, prosperity 
of a less blood-thirsty nature has been their lot. To-day, owing to the 
residence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, an even higher level of 

success has been theirs. , , r> c- t- ^ '

Across the swelling rises of the ever-blue Atlantic, 

Serenely nests an island 'midst a world of peace and war ; 
An island truly beautiful, as fits a mind romantic ; 

A land of rippling breezes o'er a misty moonlit shi'jre. 
A trickling stream is often seen 
"Neath i)alms of green and brown ; 
A sky of blue, o'er sparkling dew. 
O'erlooks a sleepy town. 
A little horse and buggy takes you 'round the country-side 

To see the sights of Nassau and the quaintest little streets ; 
The harbour with its fishing boats a-sailing with the tide; 

The market and its fish-stalls with the boxes meant for seats. 
A morn departs, an evening starts 
With a tri]) to a sheltered bay ; 
A sudden whim for a cooling swim ; 
There's nothing more to say. 
A beautiful crimson sun is drawn towards the silent sea ; 

Vivid streaks of scarlet mixed with purple wend their way 
Across a varied sky and overlook a tiny cay. 

And so begins a perfect night and ends a perfect day.

The Escape of the Galley Slaves 

The winds were blowing and the waves were high 
All over this cruel sea, 
But the longboat pushed ever onward, on 
With its crew who were finally free. 

They had planned this escape for days and nights 
And, when it was time to strike, 

They slipped ofif their chains, which were carefully filed, 
x^nd escaped in the dead of night. 

Slave after slave crept out of the hold 

Till all were crouching on deck. 

Then they noiselessly pounced on the sentry's back. 

Whom they drowned with a weight 'round his neck. 

Slave after slave climbed down to the boat 
Which was lowered but a moment before 
At the side to the lee on the storm covered sea 
Each man took his place at an oar. 

The hard part was past ; they were all free at last 
From the whip, and the drum, and the chains. 
Each pulled on his oar as never before 
In hope of fulfilling his aims.

A Most Lamentable State of Affairs 

FEW pcopk' liave gone jogging down the Mall, harking to the chatter 
of the cheery Cockney cahhy. or have seen the i)anting steeds rei)laced 
by fresh in the days of the Blankshire express, that have not thrilled at the 
usefulness of the horse : the pretty, skittish horse, the ])anting. snorting 
horse, or the trusty jilodding mare. Some peoi)le find the motion (jf a 
horse uncomfortable, and others have mal de nier in a railway carriage, 
but here is the perfect compromise. The gentle regular moti(jn of a four- 
wheeler is inducive to the deepest meditation, yet one remains sensible of 
one's surroundings. The horse-drawn carriage is our English heritage. 
In early days some Britons were bearing a Roman emperor to York in a 
litter. Being weary of their task, they placed their burden on a horse- 
drawn cart, and His Obeisity was borne to York, where he established a 
precedent and it became the fashion for emperors to die at York. Thus 
the horse has found its way to English hearts. But there is a diabolic 
invention which threatens this favour'd beast. 

It moves, it travels, but there is no horse! It snorts, it grunts, but 
still there is no horse! AX'here the horse used to be has been built a 
Trojan horse, an automaton, ruled by levers and wheels, fed lamp oil. and 
dangerous. And truly it is Trojan — once this evil has woli the hearts of 
the mob, gone will be our horses, our cabbies and even our prejudice ! 

Alas ! my pen is vicious and. like a horse, runneth av/ay. I was walk- 
ing along one of London's more fashionable streets, when i was approached 
by one of these contraptions. The driver was a bearded well-groomed 
young man, with a pretty young wife beside him. He sat high in a leather- 
covered seat, where he kept up a perpetual grasping of levers and turning 
of wheels. His "horse" was low, thick and mongrel, seemingly contrived 
of saucepans and cast iron ; it was in a state of constant motion, spluttering 
and heaving like a steam engine. But no beautiful black and tempting coal 
was fed this creature, only oil, coarse oil. such as is served with garlic and 
quinine in Soho ( leetle more spahget. Meester Crackpot?). I have 
never made an intimate study of the steam-engine, because of its plebeian 
origin. But on no steam engine is to be found the assortment of impossible 
devices which the "horse"' displays. 

As the vehicle approached, the snortings and rumblings increased. Lest 
I should incur its wrath I walked close to the wall, on tiptoe. Suddenly it 
came to a halt with a shriek and a grumble. The driver jumped down, 
muttered "Carburettor" in a mystic undertone to his wife, and proceeded 
to tear the "horse" to pieces. Such a performance of barl)ari>m I have

never seen. With strange blunt weapons he tore small round pieces from 

the "horse's"' vitals, which he replaced with tender care ; at once he removed 

something from another part of the machine. Terrified lest the thing 

called "Carburettor" should become unruly, I stole away. My last glimpse 

of the scene was horrifying : the man was in front of the "horse", turning a 

handle rapidly, and the entire vehicle was heaving and purring like a tiger 

at bay. 

Todav I asked a question in the Commons about this new vehicle. I 

considered it of such national importance that I attracted the attention of 

the Home Secretary to it. He explained that the matter was being carefully 

looked into. In the meantime, he said, the general public would be assured 

of the safety of the device, and he had been assured by an eminent mechanic 

that the contraption was contrived according to well-defined laws of nature. 

To which defence I replied with stoic fortitude and absolute silence. I 

shall make a detailed report for the perusal of my constituents, who, since 

I sent a telegram announcing the appearance of the horseless buggy, have 

been in great suspense. .,^ . , ^ , .s

THE oldest town in Ontario is Penetanguishene, which is located ninety- 
one miles north of Toronto on Penetanguishene Bay. Its history 
dates as far back as 1615," when Samuel de Champlain landed wath his 
exploring party on the shores of the beautiful land locked harbour, and pro- 
nounced it suitable for a colony. Here was the birthplace of modern 
civilization in Ontario. Here also was located a French trading post, and 
in the neighbourhood was the first mission established by the Recollet 
Fathers, who were in Huronia before the Jesuits. In the Indian village of 
Caragouha. a few miles north-west from Penetanguishene, was celebrated 
the first Catholic mass held in Ontario. Etienne Brule, the famous 
explorer, was buried on the shore of Penetanguishene Bay, after being 
killed by the Indians. With the retreat of the Jesuits to Quebec after the 
Iroquois massacre. Penetanguishene was abandoned until the beginning of 
the nineteenth century, when the British military authorities established 
a strong fort at the mouth of the harbour. The harbour saw some of the 
most stirring battles in the war of 1812. Only a few years ago the remains 
of an American battleship, the Tigress, were recovered from the ba}-, and 
may be seen at Huronia Park. This fort was maintained at Penetangui- 
shene almost until Confederation. Alany of the log homes of the military 
pensioners are to be seen leading to the old fort site, where the military 
officers quarters still stand. The famous and picturesque old church, built 
to give the nation's defenders the privileges of religion, recently celebrated 
its 100th anniversary.

Shmy, hideous, mocking waste, 
In the thunder, towering, brooding,

With the laughs of shrieking lightning 
Dancing madly through the night. 
Stands a pine, harsh, all-resisting. 
Proud in gauntness, calm in might. 

And the clouds, in clotted turmoil 

Flying through the bloody sky. 

Ridge on ridge, in writhing blackness,

TIMMINS is a medium size town up north. It started off with only a 
few shacks, but when the HoUinger mine was found, many prospectors 
came to Hve here. When the mine began to boom and men were wanted 
to work it, the town soon grew ; and inside of two years it had a population 
of three thousand people. That was in the year 1915. The HoUinger mine 
became so prosperous that a whole town was united, and by the year 1920, 
there were at least eight churches in the town, and a population of ten 
thousand. When the town became that large, schools were built all over 
the place, and the total came to six schools. At that time when the town 
was populated with ten thousand people, one thousand were miners, and 
the rest of the population were mostly foreigners. Soon the town became 
larger and larger; shows were erected, and now we have a population of 
thirty thousand, three-quarters Italians, Finns, French, and other foreign 
elements, fourteen churches, and twelve schools. 

The HoUinger mine grew larger and richer every year, and up till now. 
it is the second richest and largest mine in the world. The mine was named 
after Benny HoUinger, who first staked the mine way back in 1910. 
Timmins, the town, was named after Noah Timmins, the man who really 
put the HoUinger mine on its way to success. The HoUinger mine not only 
made many people rich, but also made a town out of a wilderness, and has 
opened up the real parts of Northern Ontario. It also made Timmins a 
rich and prosperous town with lovable and peaceful people, till disturbed 
by outsiders. The HoUinger also gave people ideas of looking for other 
mines, and that started the real mining boom in Ontario. After the 
HoUinger was found, many others came in sight such as the Lake Shore, 
Mclntyre, Dome, Paymaster, and many others. Timmins is surrounded 
by many other towns, and if anyone wants to make a lot of money, and lead 
a quiet life, come up to Timmins ; a mucker's paradise.

The Mule Train Mystery 

IT was now over thirteen days since we left Mexico City determined to 
reach the West coast. Although we had previously decided that we 
should spend no money on this trip, we had little difticulty in getting trans- 
portation. At the head of the Lerma River, our starting jjoint. we luckily 
met a poor fisherman who. travelling alone, offered to take us down the 
river, provided we paddled the canoe. We accepted ; and travelled with 
him for several miles. Later we patched up an old deserted canoe which 
carried us to the foothills of the mighty Sierras. Here we abandoned our 
craft in order to reach a small town from whicli mule trains departed 
regularly for the West Coast. , . 

34 St. Andrew's College Review 

Situated at the mouth of a deep cailon, this pueblo is wholly composed 
of the workmen from the nearby nitrate mine. Since there is no other 
means of transporting this material to the coast, mule trains are extensively 
used. The town itself was an old Indian pueblo, built perhaps around a 
mission church. The roofs of the brightly painted houses were of red 
tile, and the only traffic on its stone streets was ox-carts and mules. The 
pueblo looked cheerful enough, but the people, strangely, seemed to regard 
us coldly ; turning their heads away or eyeing us suspiciously. What sur- 
prised us most, however, was that no one laughed ; no one smiled ; all 
seemed to regard one another as enemies, passing each other without the 
customary "Buenos dias". 

We arrived late in the afternoon and, finding no place to stay or any 
rooms to let, we consulted the local barber, who, as is always the case, knew 
everybody's business except his own. He explained the situation to us. 

'Tt's all because men are killed and mules mysteriously stolen, accord- 
ing to the peons, by some strange creature, striking between el cation del 
Zorro and el Diablo's moor, that no mule hand is eager to leave for the 
mountains ; some even refuse to go. The whole population is worried," 
he added. 

"\Miich seems natural enough." I answered. 

"Si, si,'' he continued, "especially if what the peons say about him is 
true !" 

'T'll bite," I said, "what do they say about it?" 

"Well, he's supposed to be a creature of tremendous strength, and 
great agility; sometimes carrying away as much as 150 pounds of nitrate. 
No man has ever seen him — and lived !" 

I laughed, "When do we start. Jose?" I asked my travelling companion. 

"As soon as the next mules leave." he answered. 

The barber looked at us mystified, "You don't intend to . . ." 

"Si," I interrupted, "When does the next mule train leave?" 

"At dawn." 

Since it was impossible to get a job on the mule trains if you were not 
a peon, we traded our clothes and knapsacks for Indian garb and three-foot 
sombreros. Thus clothed we easily overcame this handicap, and early 
morning saw us getting acquainted with the gentle art of mule herding. 

For three days the train plodded onward, through treacherous paths, 
high mountains and green valleys. We were becoming impatient, for 
nothing was heard or seen, and the trip was proving monotonous. The 
peons, however, were of a different mind, for fear was clearly written on 
their faces ; they talked in low voices, casting fearful glances at the moun- 
tains. We were entering el canon del Zorro. 

The whole caravan began to move forward hesitantly, the peons quaking

with fear. El canon del Zorro was the danger jwint. When we had crossed 
most of it, and saw the open moor ahead of us, they liroke intf) a run, heat- 
ing the mules furiously, and spurring them onward with shouts. \\q 
reached the moor tired and out of breatli. hut the facts were conclusive — 
nothing had happened. 

It was getting late now, and the last rays of the setting sun cast gro- 
tesque shadows over the dismal moor — el Diablo's moor. At some distance, 
the fading light brought to our view an enormous mansion, half hidden 
in a cluster of weeping willows. It was ai)parently inhabited, for a light 
was shining from an upper window. 

Pablo, the chief mule hand, called us together for a conference, and for 
a long time we debated whether to cam]) in the moor, or near the hf»use. 
Since we mule hands are very superstitious, we naturally preferred the 

When we arrived, however, the house took a different as])ect ; it seemed 
deserted. The central fountain witli its statute of Cupid, was dry ; moss 
and creeping vines covered the four marble pillars forming the face of the 
old colonial mansion ; the gardens were unkempt ; weeds and rushes covered 
what had perhaps been the front lawn ; and some parts of the roof had fallen 
in. Yet, we had seen a light. This frightened the peons again, and we 
decided not to camp here, but beside the old stables which were at some 
distance from the house. Putting the mules away securely in the ruined 
stables, we hastened to build a fire, and in an hour were all ready for the 

The glowing crackling flames raised the spirits of the men, who, bring- 
ing out their guitars, sang until sleep overcame us. It was my turn to 
watch the fire for the first part of the night. Two hours passed unevent- 
fully ; I lay on the ground near the fire, and at different intervals stood up 
and refueled it. It must have been about one o'clock when I began to doze 
off, and finally went to sleep. 

Suddenly I was roughly awakened by Jose ; the mules had begun to 
neigh. Something was disturbing them. Posing as mule hands, we could 
not very well produce a flashlight, so we had to stumble to the stables in 
the dark. The mules were in a terrible commotion ; neighing frenziedly, 
and pounding against the sides of their stalls. Other strange sounds were 
mingled with these — we struck a match — three large cats, their shaggy 
coats dripping blood, were fighting in the dirt, shrieking and clawing 
over a red blob on the ground. The sudden flare of the match frightened 
them away, and we saw the cause of the fight — mule meat. Though 
mangled to a gory pulp, we could still identify it. for one side was covered 
with hair. What drew our attention most, hf)wever. was its queer shape; 
it obviously had been cut by a knife. 

36 St. Andrew's College Review 

The peons were now running toward us ; they glanced at the mule meat 
and then at the stables. They counted the mules, none was missing; they 
counted them again, but still they were all there. We glanced at each other 
with the same question in our eyes : where did the mule meat come from, 
and who cut it? No one tried to answer this question, and no one said 
anything, so taking advantage of the opportunity I made light of the situa- 
tion, and told them to go back to bed. They murmured for a while and 
then went back to the camp reluctantly. No sooner had we re-entered the 
camp, when again the mules were in an uproar. 

"It's those cats again," said Jose, ''perhaps they want to eat our mules." 

"Cats don't use knives," I answered. 

Since the peons were very superstitious, they refused to go back, but 
when I argued that it was probably only a thief who was trying to steal 
the mules, they took courage, and picking up enormous clubs moved silently 
toward the stables. They were very surprised when I produced a flashlight. 
It was pitch dark and silent in the stables when we arrived. Fearing the 
thief had fled, we shone the flashlight ; a long shaft of light pierced the night ; 
a mule was missing; and with it four sacks of nitrate. I hurried to the 
vacant stall, and with the aid of my flashlight I found what I sought — 
fresh foot prints in the mud. They were gigantic, and judging by their 
depth, were made by an enormous man. \\'hoever it was, had plenty of 
time to escape, for we had been away from the stable long enough for him 
to saddle the mule and give it a saircut besides. We followed the prints 
of mule and man, which were clearly visible on the soft sod of the boggy 
moor. Picking up a ferocious looking club, I set off in pursuit of the thief. 
For some time we followed each other in Indian fashion, twisting and turn- 
ing through a dense growth of scraggy slash pine. The prints were becom- 
ing more and more obscure ; at length we lost sight of them altogether. The 
general course, however, clearly led to the house. We made our way 
towards it ; not easily, for the bog had virtually turned into a swamp, and 
now and then we sank to our knees in the muddy stagnant water, covered 
almost completely with green slime and rushes. Frogs and mosquitos kept 
up a continuous chorus as we plodded on. At last we arrived at the house, 
and examined it as best we could in the darkness, since I did not dare to 
turn on my light. We picked up the trail again near the servants' quarters, 
and followed it to a spot where, much to our horror and surprise, we found 
large puddles of fresh blood and heaps of old bones — mule bones. There 
were about three dozen mule skeletons in one pile, and others were dying, 
suspended from a wire. W^ followed the trail of blood for a few paces, 
and found our mule — dead. W'e had stumbled on the hide-out of the

had happened to the mule might happen to us! My courage cruiuMed. 
and I was ahout to run, wlien I was stopped by my friend. 

"Buck u]). we're eighteen against one, and we have him cornered," he 
said, "follow me." 

Gripping our iitaclicfcs and cluhs with iremhling hands, we foUnwed him 
to the house, up a flight of creaky, rotted steps, that almost didn't hdld us, 
and thus entered the hack door. We entered what had once been the 
kitchen. It was sparsely furnished, hut it seemed that it had heen used 
recently, for we found no dust or cobwebs as in all the other rooms, but 
pots, pans and newly used supplies. From the kitchen we entered a long 
panelled chamber, once the dining room. It was deserted : all the furniture, 
seventeenth century style, was covered with dust and cobwel'S. They were 
probably valuable antiques. Without disturbing anything we moved 
through the door into the main hall, joining the front door. 

From the foot of a beautiful spiral marble staircase, we swept the room 
with our flashlights ; it w^as in the same condition as the dining room — 
decaying. A great, exquisitely carved lamp hung above us from a chain, 
the candles unburnt. the metal work rusted. As we followed the bright 
sweep of the light, we noticed footprints in the thick dust and debris leading 
to an adjoining room. Instantly the flashlights were turned off, and the 
clubs and machetes raised, as we moved into what was probably once the 
library. A pale yellow light glowed from a large open trap-door in the 
rug-covered floor, dimly outlining the walls of the room, covered with

as I stared with my eyes fixed in the direction of the open trap-door. Then, 
as if by instinct. I moved forward, my fingers locked solidly about my club. 
The others also approached the dreadful opening, but it was Pablo the chief 
mule hand, who entered first, and led us down into the hidden room. 

The chamber was empty, but three burning oil lamps on a corner table, 
made it apparent that the owner would soon return. It was a large stone 
room with no windows. A heavily built wooden table stood before us; 
a bed and a desk in opposite corners. \\'hat attracted our attention, how- 
ever, was a giant stone crusher on the other side of the table, and the great 
number of barrels and heavy sacks which lay piled high all around the 
room. On inspection these sacks proved to be filled with different chem- 
icals, mostly in an unrefined state, which explained the i)resence of the stone 
crusher. Another strange find was a sack full of i)owdered mule bones. 
Apart from the mentioned furniture, there were innumerable articles scat- 
tered about, rugs, books, kitchen utensils, clothes, empty whisky bottles. 


8 St. Andrew' s College Review 

Among these articles we found a key to the situation — an old newspaper 
clipping : 

Santa Cruz, apr. 16, 1938 — Professor J. 
C. Rodriges. superintendent of the Santa 
Cruz Chemical Works Inc. disappeared 
from his home last night . . . 

Suddenly we heard sluggish footsteps above in the library. My legs 
trembled and my heart missed a beat. \\'as it the maniac Rodriges ? 

The peons were panic-stricken ; the men who had been so brave when 
entering the house, now fought to hide themselves behind the many barrels 
and sacks along the walls. 

Moved by a sudden thrill of fear. I dashed behind some tall barrels 
standing in the far end of the room, and buried myself in a pile of empty 
sacks. From where I was hidden I had an excellent view of the door. A 
man was coming down the stairs. . . . 

He was a huge brute, so tall that he had to stoop slightly entering the 
room. His costume was a mixture of a workman's and a butcher's, con- 
sisting of soiled overalls, heavy high cut boots, and covering this was a 
dirty apron splashed with blood. His hair was long and bushy, his face 
as big as a ham and covered with wrinkles ; his nose long and hooked. The 
most terrifying of his features, however, were his eyes ; two red bloodshot 
balls sunk deep in his skull, that glittered murderously. 

Close on his heels trod a black cat, one of the three we had seen at the 
stables. With a sluggish stride he moved toward the desk, and reaching 
for a whisky bottle, he sat down no less than five feet from me, and began 
to drink. The cat scenting us, snarled, and curled up its back with a high 
pitched cry. The maniac stood up, and with a vicious kick, sent it sprawl- 
ing on the floor. For a long time it lay there writhing in pain ; then it got 
up painfully, and limped away. The chemist was about to sit down, when 
Pablo, who was hidden behind the barrel, moved slightly, and sent a glass 
pitcher crashing to the floor in a thousand sparkling splinters. 

There was a wild dash for the trap-door, as the whole room seemed 
suddenly alive, with desperate, frenzied men, who stumbling o\er each 
other, raced up the stairs with the murderous maniac in hot pursuit. 

I, however, could not escape, since the madman barred my only path to 
the door. I sat silently behind the barrel and watched the brute return. 
Suddenly my eyes fell on the burning lamps, and a plan formed in my mind. 
It was a reckless, desperate plan, but my only possible way of escape. 
Seizing a massive book, I stood up and hurled it at the lamps ; two of them

shattered sending rivers of flame spreading over the njoni. Desperately, 
I darted to the side of the table opposite the maniac, keeping the width of 
the table between us. First he stared at me with his blocjdshot eyes, and 
then at the fire in the corner. He knew that he would h^se me if he tried 
to come round the table, since I would escape by the door. He calmly 
went upstairs and slammed the heavy door shut. I was trapped. 

The fire was spreading rapidly; the chemical bags and barrels began 
to burn with an ever increasing intensity. The trap opened and the maniac 
appeared with a bucket of water, and instead of pursuing me tried to 
extinguish the fire. This was as I had planned when I had smashed the 
lamps. I dashed up the stairs, and finding it locked, pounded and fumbled 
with the latch in an effort to get it open. The fire was now (nit of contnjl. 
the bags of nitrate were burning with hissing yellow flames that filled the 
room, but the maniac was still trying to extinguish it. Realizing his efforts 
were in vain, he turned on me for revenge. Not a moment too soon the 
door gave way, for his hairy hand touched my heel as I raced away from that 
flame-filled chamber. 

I could hear the voices of the mule hands just outside the library, and 
running towards them in utter darkness, I tripped, and hit my head against 
the floor. I felt a black cloud settle over my eyes, and I lost consciousness. 

When I awoke. I found myself in the open air, and my head was 
bandaged. A hissing, crackling sound made me rise on my knees and look 
around. Although I was still a little dizzy, there could be no inistake about 
it — the old mansion was almost totally consumed by fire. 

My friends gathered 'round, and Jose supported me while I gazed at 
the fiery hell. It had been the mule hands who saved v.v^ from burning 

"When we returned to the library, we found you lying on the floor 
unconscious," said Jose ; "the maniac, who was not far from you, ran back 
mto the cellar, when he saw us approaching. We closed the trap-door and 
secured it by laying a massive wardrobe across it. It was the human thing 
to do." 

"But why did he keep such quantities of mule bones and chemicals?" 
1 asked. 

"They must have been used as part of a formula of a powerful explosive, 
tor we were scarcely out of the house before a thunderous explosion rent 
the air, and half the building collapsed before our eyes." 

I asked no more questions. Smouldering ashes lay before us when the 
faint light of dawn appeared in the sky. The mule train moved on.

on the occasion of 
'^[\t Jforty.^ccottb ^nnual ^rise Jag 

June the 17th. 1941 

WITH the ever increasing measure of poHtical independence and Seh'- 
Government employed by the Britain's Overseas Dominions, the 
Crown remains as the one and supreme symbol of the unity of the British 
Empire. The personal allegiance of every British Subject to His Majesty 
the King, in "Bonds of Freedom", is proving to be a stronger tie than any 
Statute ever passed by the Mother of Parliaments. 

It was as the personal representative and trusted friend and counsellor 
of our King that we were proud to greet His Excellency. The Right 
Honourable. The Earl of Athlone, K.G.. P.C. Governor-General of Canada. 

42 St. Andrew's College Review 

The occasion of his visit was the Forty-Second Annual Prize Day of St. 
Andrew's College, on Tuesday, June 17th, 1941. x\ truly memorable day. 

As the whole School and the many distinguished guests assembled 
expectantly, the Guard of Honour was drawn up before Dunlap Hall to 
salute His Excellency in true Highland fashion on his arrival. 

With customary pro^nptness the Viceregal party appeared at the 
appointed moment. The Guard of Honour came to the "Present Arms" 
and the pipers played the General Salute. Coming to attention, like the 
true soldier tl>at he is, His Excellency acknowledged the tribute and then 
proceeded, with a keen and practiced eye, to inspect the Guard. His high 
praise of the appearance, bearing and precision of the Company were a 
well merited and gratifying reward for the months of discipline, training 
and drill which the Corps has so faithfully undertaken and so thoroughly 

The military ceremony at an end. His Excellency assumed, with an 
easy grace, the role of diplomat, and held an informal levee in the Assembly 
Hall. The platform guests, members of the Board of Governors, the 
Masters and their wives, and other special guests were presented in suc- 
cession by The Headmaster as His Excellency made his progress around 
the room. He paused here for a word with The Hon. R. C. Matthews, 
and stopped there to recall with General Sewell their common loyalty to 
the same crack Regiment — the 7th Hussars, to which the Earl of Athlone 
is Colonel-in-Chief. and in which, on leaving St. Andrew's, the younger 
Sewell is ambitious to follow in the footsteps of his distinguished father. 

The guests now took their places in the well-decorated gymnasium, 
and the School, summoned class by class, marched smartly to their seats. 
Then the skirl of the pipes brought them to their feet for the entry of 
The Governor-General, accompanied by Sir Shuldham Redfern, K.C.V.O., 
Commander E. C. Sherwood, R.C.N., and the platform party. 

All stood at attention for the National xA.nthem, and the School Hymn. 
Then followed the reading of Psalm 122 by Dr. J. R. P. Sclater. and suit- 
able prayers by Bishop Rennison. after which the Headmaster extended, 
with due deference, the welcome of the School and of the assembled guests, 
and expressed our appreciation of the honour which he had so graciously 
conferred upon St. Andrew's College in coming to present the Prizes. 

The Headmaster next outlined liriefly the history, aims and achievement 
of the School, its Scottish l)ackground and English Public School tenden- 
cies. He paid tribute to the vision and influence of Mr. J. K. Macdonald, 
our founder, and to Dr. D. Bruce Macdonald. our former Headmaster and 
present Chairman of the Board of Governors. He acknowledged with 
gratitude the generous benefits which the School had received from Lord 
Strathcona. Sir Joseph Flavelle, Sir Albert Gooderham. Mr. Goldwin

Concernino- the future, tlic 1 U'athna.ster continued: 

"At the moment, the puhhc is mure ai)])reciative and more critical than 
ever hefore of the usefuhiess and the vahie of schools such as this. The 
tremendous struj;gle into which the world is now so unhappily plunged is 
a struggle of ideals and a hatlle of schools, as truly as a hattle of regiments 
and armaments. The world is tragically aware of what has heen acc(»m- 
plished in Germany and Italy in perverting the sound ideals of the family 
and of the education of the young, which have hitherto heen the safeguards 
of society. We now know that what is taught in the classnjom will he 
tested on the battlefield, and that what is taught and how it is taught will 
eventually prove the salvation or the downfall of our race. At St. Andrew's 
we have changed some things, hut we have not changed everything ; we have 
realized that the studies and the methods which produced such gallant 
defenders in the Great War should not be hurriedly thrown into the dis- 
card. There is still a place for those studies which build character, and for 
a course of life which will curb those excesses to which youth and wealth 
are exposed. We try to give our boys a healthy, self-disciplined outlook, 
and we do not expect them to fail when they go out into the battle of life. 
We look with grave apprehension upon those educational tendencies around 
us which encourage license and remove from the lives of cliildren parental 
control and substitute the whim of the moment or the most trivial of intel- 
lectual exercises for hard- won skill, self-discipline and the treasures of 
sound learning. 

"Someone has recently paraphrased that famous quota'don of the Duke 
of W^ellington by saying that all England is now the Eton playing field of 
Hitler's Waterloo ; he might have said with even more truth that all Eng- 
land is now the active Eton brain-power of Hitler's Waterloo. We cannot 
afiford in the face of the pressing need for progress and invention to leave 
such matters to our enemies, who are likely to enslave the world by the 
abuse of Science. If in the past it was thew and sinew which won the 
victory, in the future it is more likely to be research and alert brain-cells. 
No nation armed with the best brains is likely to be attacked. And we have 
to think, too, of the great problems of peace and reconstruction. 

'AVe have been thinking of all these things in the shelter of this coiu- 
paratively remote quarter of the world where as yet no bombs have fallen. 
And so we continue for the present to teach Mathematics and the Classics, 
Science and Modern Languages. English Literature and Music and His- 
tory; we do something at manual training and the drama; we publish a 
school paper, we have a flourishing cadet corps and the finest pi])e band out- 
side of Scotland ! We encourage a Literary Society and as many hobbies

as the boys have time to pursue. Thanks to the Ladies' Guild, we have 
an excellent library, and we do our best to induce the boys to leave the 
radio for a few minutes and read good literature. We have an efficient 
department of Physical Education, and we feed the boys well — possibly 
too well : their parents find it a strain to provide the necessary clothing to 
cover their long limbs! Tlje motto of our school is 'Quit you like men, 
be strong", and we want them to be strong in body and strong in mind. 
And in conclusion, we lay special emphasis on our chapel services and the 
spiritual development of the boys. Without the support of real religion, 
other lessons in truth and honour, service and self-sacrifice, are in vain. 

"I expect, your Excellency, that while I have been speaking you have 
been studying the faces of these boys ; they are true indication of our failure 
or success. I trust that }"ou ha\'e found in them evidences of those qualities 
which all of the British race wish to see in those who are the hope of the 
future and of their country. Canada is a spacious land ; she makes stern 
demands on her citizens. We shall be satisfied if we can breed men com- 
parable to such a land and to the great stock of the Motherland. With such 
a past, and with such traditions, the boys of St. Andrew's will continue to 
jjlay a worthy part wherever and whenever dutv calls." 

At the request of the Headmaster His Excellency presented the General 
Proficiency and Special Prizes, and had the satisfaction of finding that a 
very crditable proportion of these went to our war guests from the British 

His Excellency then delivered a very stirring address the full text of 
which is as follows : 
Mr. Ketchum. Ladies and Gentlemen. 

I am delighted to be here today and to have the privilege of presenting 
these prizes. In some English schools this occasion is known as Speech 
Day and the boys themselves make the speeches — and some get the prizes. 
Here I notice that I am expected to make a speech, but I do not imagine 
I shall be awarded a prize for it. 

In many ways I think your Canadian system is preferable, for I doubt if 
the making of speeches is an accomplishment that is to be encouraged. In 
these days what we want is action rather than speeches. But. you will say, 
what can we do here at school in Canada to play our part in winning the 
war? It is a reasonable question, and I should like to tell you a few of the 
things you can do. First of all. you can take an intelligent interest in the 
war. Ask questions about it. Study its causes. Put yourself in the place 
of the enemy and consider what you would do next. Don't make the mis- 
take that millions of grown-up people make every day — don't study a world 
war by looking only at a map of Europe. Remember that when the war is 
over, the world has got to be restored to sanitv and governed in an orderlv 

St. Andrew's College Review 45 

and civilized manner. That is going to be our job— the jol) of your genera- 
tion. And it has got to be the job of educated men and women. The task 
is going to be fearfully difficult, and requires an abundance of clear thinking. 

In a few years time you will have to make up your minds what you arc- 
going to do in life. Let me suggest to you that you should give first con- 
sideration to the service of your country. Those of you whose fathers or 
relations are now in the Army, Navy or .-Xir Force will naturally think of 
those Services. But I should remind you that the Civil Services of ycjur 
country, the great departments charged with the administration of good 
government, demand and will continue to demand the highest talents which 
the educated men and women from our schools and universities can ])ro- 
duce. Another thing you can do about the war is to learn to be good mi.xers 
— that is to say, learn to understand the ways of thought and the lives of 
all sorts and conditions of people, both those who are more jirivileged as 
vvcll as those who are less privileged than you. You will hnd in the first 
place that wealth has little connection with true worth. 

In Great Britain they have formed what is known as the Home Guard — 
an astonishing body of men, many of them old soldiers, but they come from 
all walks of life — property owners, gardeners, millionaires, chauffeurs, 
parsons. The other day in England, a Brigadier went and inspected a unit 
of the Home Guard and found that one of the sentries was his own lawyer. 
He stopped at a man in the front rank and said "What were you before 
you joined the Home Guard?" ".A. Rear .Admiral, Sir." The ne.xt, in 
reply to the same question, said "A Major-General, Sir." The third man 
was wearing a row of strange foreign decorations and the Brigadiei said 
"And what were you, my man?" The private soldier rephed "I was an 
Ambassador, Sir." 

So you see in this titanic struggle what counts is not .so much what you 
were, as what you are. What matters is not whether you are Canadian or 
English or Scotch or Irish or whether you are rich or poor or old or young, 
but what you are capable of doing to bring nearer the day when victory will 
be in our grasp. 

To those of you who are leaving school this term and may perliai)s l)e 
called into the service of your country before the war is over. 1 would say. 
"Prepare yourselves with determination and zeal to make yourselves fit 
in mind and body for the responsibilities which may shortly be laid on your 

To those of you who have several years at school ahead of you, I can- 
not urge you too strongly to study diligently so that your generation may 
be spared the tragedy and futility and folly oi war. Remember that war — 
all war — is an indication of the bankruptcy of intelligence. But now that 
the civilized world has been forced into a struggle for its very survival. 

46 Sl Andrew's College Review 

we must all enter into that struggle with fanatical zeal, enduring patience 
and unswerving loyalty to the Throne that binds us all together. 

As you know. The King is my nephew. \\"hen I next write to him 1 
will tell him of my visit to St. Andrews's College today. And I shall assure 
His Majesty that from what I have seen ®f the younger generation in the 
schools throughout Canada, I have an evergrowing confidence that the 
future of our great Empire will be in hands worthy of their great inherit- 
ance. A great English statesman, Disraeli, once said "To be young is 
great. To be young and wuse is irresistible. 

'Tn fact. I feel quite at home here in the Scottish atmosphere of St. 
Andrew's, honoured as I am by being an Hon. Doctor of Laws of the 
University of St. Andrew's. Scotland, and so I think this following Scottish 
version of 'There'll always be an England' will not be out of place and may 
amuse some. 

" 'There'll always be an England as long as Scotland stands. 

'It's just through poor Auld Scotland that England's wealth expands. 

'Our friendly neighbour England we always will defend. 

'We'll fight all England's battles, her broken ships we'll mend, 

'And when the war is over and victory has been won 

'We'll sing all England's praises for what auld Scotland's done.' " 

That is the true Scottish fighting spirit ! 

On resuming his seat His Excellency was greeted with three British 
Cheers and a Tiger from the School to which, at the close of term, he could 
hardly respond with the declaration of a half holiday. 

The singing of "I Vow to Thee My Country" made a fitting conclusion 
to the exercises. 

The Guests of Honour then led the way to the Headmaster's Garden 
where in the shade of a marquee, was spread a most tempting array of 
delicacies. The grounds and gardens were at their best and made a delight- 
ful setting for a Garden Party. Some four hundred guests, among whom 
were many Old Boys of the School, thoroughly enjoyed this hour before 
returning to the closer confines of the city. 

The Review is indebted to The Globe and Mail for its courtesy' in permitting 
republication of the photographs of the visit of His Excellency the Governor-General.

HecJ Prefect 

The position of Head Prefect this year was occupied by James Edward 
"Pat" Davis, and we think it very fitting that he should finish his dis- 
tinguished career of leadership at St. Andrew's with this great honour. 
Last year, in our "year of years" in athletics. Pat was the only hoy in the 
School to be on five first teams. This year he again distinguished himself 
in athletics, being Captain in his fourth year on the basketball team, and 
Vice-Captain of the football team. He is also a distance-runner and a 
swimmer of note. As Captain of the Cadet Corps, Pat headed the guard 
of honour which welcomed the Governor-General to the School this spring. 
We all like Pat a great deal and he will certainlv be missed next year.

The Headmaster's Address to the Boys in the Chapel 
on the Last Sunday of the School Year, June 15th, 1941 

I do not propose to preach you a sermon this afternoon, hut rather 
to stand on these chancel steps and for a few minutes simply to chat to 
you. Since it is the last Sunday chapel service of the school year, perhaps 
the younger boys will forgive me if my remarks are chiefly directed 
towards those older boys who are about to leave the school for the last 
time, and for whom this is a most important moment. 

\\"e are hearing a great deal these days about the thing called Freedom ; 
it is talked about on the radio ; it is written about in the press ; public 
speakers constantly make it their theme; it is the subject of many patriotic 
songs and posters. \\'e are told that Freedom is the thing for which the 
present war is being waged, for which many of our own Old Boys are fight- 
ing. Now I have no intention of trying to give you a definition of Freedom, 
or of embarking upon any philosophical discussion of the subject — that 
would be much too large and long a discourse ; and in any event, people 
such as J. M. Barrie and General Smuts, have already done such justice 
to the subject that it is not for me to attempt any improvement upon them. 
But I think you will agree that, however it may be defined. Freedom is 
something we all want ; you are all looking forward to a certain measure 
of it when vou leave school in the next few da\'s. and you probably feel that

the strii^r^'lc- of a fairly hard tcrin and the battle of (inal examinations have 
been worthwhile when they are followed by that delightful sense of release 
which comes with the advent of the summer holidays. Unfortunately, how- 
ever, true I'Veedom is not something that can simply be handed to you, 
nor is it the result solely of hard work, though hard work always helps. 
With nations as with individuals, Freedom is something that must be 
achieved and won. and no nation can win it until each of her citizens, in his 
own way, has achieved it for himself. How to achieve it is the great 

The Fifth Form and I have been applying ourselves to this ])rol)lem 
once a week dfiring this school year and we feel satisfied in at least one 
conclusion to which we have come. We have discovered that no one can 
be free until he has learned to be real — real in his thoughts and. just as 
important, real in his feelings. Perhaps unconsciously but none the less 
actually, so many of us fool ourselves and try to fool others ; what we do, 
say, think and feel is so often the product, not of ourselves, as we like to 
pretend, but of what others do. say. think and feel. We do things so often 
because we ought to do them, rather than because we really want to do 
them. We say things because they are the proper or the appropriate things 
to say. and we think things because other people think them — so often our 
thoughts and words fail to be prompted by our own real feelings. We think 
and w'e say. for instance, that we believe in Christianity; bui if we really 
believed in Christianity, how dififerent we would l)c from what we actually 
are ! 

Surely this state of alTairs is slavery — slavery to the thoughts and feel- 
ings and actions of others — and we can't be slaves and free at the same time. 
We can never achieve individual freedom until we can rely on our own 
thoughts and feelings rather than having to rely on those of others. This 
means active minds and hard work when we are young so that we may 
acquire sound thoughts and feelings, but it also means that we must kee]) 
striving to discriminate between what is true and real and what is false and 
deceptive. It is the privilege of the very young to live in a world (tf 
unreality ; as we grow older it is our responsibility to learn to see things as 
they really are. This we can do only when we begin to see ourselves as we 
really are — to know ourselves — to be real. . . . Coming home from school 
one day, a young lad was attacked by the village bully who. without pro- 
vocation, struck him mercilessly. Hostile but thoroughly frightened, the 
boy did not strike back, and after withdrawing from the bully and straight- 
ening himself out he eventually reached home. He related his e.xperience 
to his mother and father, taking pains to make them understand that he 
had spitefully turned the other cheek. Loving but indulgent, his mother

commended him. Adding wisdom to his devotion for the boy, the faiher 
said: "My son. never confuse the love of Christ with the fear of man". 

The best summing up of all this is in the familiar words of Shakespeare : 
"This above all : to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night 
the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man". You older boys are 
now at a stage where you should no longer be playing a game ; you should 
have begun to realize the real meaning of playing the game. You should no 
longer be fooling yourselves or trying to fool others ; you should now be 
more real in thought and feeling because you have begun to learn the truth 
about vourselves. and hence about other people and the world. And as the 
truth begins to dawn, you will begin to attain unto that real Freedom — a 
freedom of mind and spirit — a freedom which will give you the enthusiasm 
and the will and the courage to carry you through whatever storms and 
hardships lie ahead. 

You have, I hope, begun to learn the truth at school. You ha\'e much 
more to learn. Your minds must continue to be active. But wherever 
you go, whatever you do, always remember what your school has tried 
most to emphasize, that by far the greatest source of truth is to be found 
in the life and teaching of Christ. At the end of the lesson read this after- 
noon, Jesus said, 'Tf ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples 
indeed ; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free". 
When vou leave this school, you will be called upon to render various kinds 
of service, and I know that you will give it willingly and cheerfully. But 
your school prays that your first and your greatest service may always be 
that of the true Christ, for his service is perfect freedom.

On Saturday. June 14th, the Choir of New St. Andrew's Church held 
a combined Picnic and Song Festival at the College. A sportive afternoon 
was followed by high tea at the Ouchterlony's. 

In the evening there was a delightful choral programme in the Chapel; 
the boys vying with the choir in alternate groups of selections. 

The Choir rendered Psalms 23 and 24; Jesu. Joy of Man's Desiring 
(J. S. Bach) ; Greater Love Hath Xo Man (John Ireland), and the Cesar 
Franck setting of Psalm 150. 

The School responded with parts of three fine Hymns in settings which 
have been learned this year, 

"Come, my soul, thou must be waking — " 
"Lord of our life, and God of our salvation," 
"To thank the Lord our God it is 
A good and comely thing." 
In the third of these, the Choir, to whom the tune was a new one. sang 
the fourth verse after the School had sung the first three. Their rendering 
showed the force of our good example, as may well be imagined. 

The last three numbers by the Choir mounted steadily in power ; "The 
Storm Music" (Song of Miriam), by Schubert ; "Your Harps and Cymbals 
Sound" (from "Solomon"), a tumultuous hymn of praise by Handel; and 
lastly, Handel's mighty paean of triumph and resurrection, "The Halle- 
lujah Chorus." 

It seemed inconceivable that so few voices could have reached such a 
magnificent climax as was attained in the closing moments of that memor- 
able recital. Each section of the Choir maintained its part in due proportion 
and with the utmost precision. The audience was spellbound. 

This is the second recital of this kind for which we are indebted to Mr. 
Ouchterlony and his Choir. It is our sincere desire that it will become 
an annual event.

On Thursday, Ma\- the 29th, a recital was given in the Assembly 
Hall and Chapel by the piano and organ students. Beginning with boys 
who are at present at the elementar\- stages, various stages of pla\ing 
were demonstrated. Piano solos, duets, and two piano works were 
heard and some of the most interesting compositions were those played 
on the organ. 

Explanatory remarks were made by Mr. Ouchterlony, who empha- 
sized the importance of a student's enjoyment of this type of work. 
It seemed to be evident that such enjoyment was felt by those taking 
part in what the rest of the School found an interesting and entertaining

Hitherto it has not been considered important. It is essential that it take 
a more prominent part in our life at school. 

Two debates were held this year. The first took place on January 28th. 
The resolution was "That the U.S.A. enter the war against Germany at 
once." This motion was put before the House by Ballon I and Thiele. 
It was successfully opposed by Cossitt and Boothe. The speakers from 
the floor presented their ideas in a more coherent form than has been 
witnessed in scA'eral years. 

The second debate was held on March 1st. The subject of the debate, 
"Resolved that skiing be placed on an equal footing with hockey in the 
school," was of a nature that called for considerable argument. The motion 
was proposed by Grant I and Cotter, and Kilgour and Stapells opposed it. 
The motion was carried. It is to be hoped that in future debates will 
be given even greater care and consideration.

THE dif^culties attendant ui)on the production of a school play are 
many. Of these the universal is the youth and inexi)erience of the 
players, surmounted in this case by an able choosing of the cast so that 
they fell naturally into their several roles. More local factors were two ; 
lack of time for rehearsal, due to conflicting activities, and of a proper 
building for the presentation. The former did not obtrude itself to any 
great extent, although there were moments which would have been the 
better for more preparation ; the latter was much more evident m its results. 
for the smallness of the room, and the equal level of the audience and the 
stage, tended to destroy the essential atmosphere f)f illusioiv, revealing the 
minutest flaws in the production. Especially was this felt in the last scene ; 
it was difificult to invest the hidden rooms, secret panels, dead men's hands, 
et cetera, with the proper degree of mystery. Moreover, the informality 
thus created had a distressing result; the audience felt no call to restrain 
its critical faculty, which was accordingly manifested in a continuous low- 
buzzing and murmuring, punctuated by occasional louder outbursts. 
Whether this is more comforting to the players than a stony silence it is 
impossible to say; however, it renders many of their remarks inaudible. 
Despite these manifold difftculties, Mr. Tottenham and his assistants 
were able to make a highly effective presentation of the play. .-Mthough 
slight flaws were perceptible here and there, yet the general level of per- 
formance was surprisingly high. The cast acquitted itself nobly in the most 
crucial test, that of sustaining interest throughout, keejiing the play moving 
from start to finish. Especially noticeable was the beginning; there was 
nothing in particular to set it off. Yet T.ightbourn and Cotter were able to 

58 Sl Andrew' s College Review 

hold our attention from the first, carrying us along without hesitation to the 
development. Cotter sustained his difficult part throughout, without a 
trace of that overacting into which he could so easily have fallen. Light- 
bourn's witty interpretation of the maid's part was carried out excellently, 
although his accent, combined with speed of speech, obscured some of the 
words. Mulock portrayed simpering femininity to perfection, while Lappin, 
although less suited to his final metamorphosis, possessed the indispensable 
blase air of the detective. Some of us, however, regretted the absence of a 
fat cigar between his teeth. 

The make-up was, in general, excellent. Cornelia's was realistic, even 
with the proximity of the audience. Beresford's moustache added just the 
right touch to his blustering character. However, one could not help 
regretting Brookes' perpetual blush, which alone failed to attain the general 
high level. 

Finally, the unhonoured and unsung behind-the-scenes organization 
carried out its functions with such efficiency, that, paradoxically, its pres- 
ence was not noticed. Thus, with the co-operation of an extremely able 
staff, Mr. Tottenham was able to produce a play of high artistic perfection, 
enjoyable in every respect.

On Sunday, May 11th, the Cadet Corps held its Spring Church Parade. 
We were glad this year to renew our old 'acquaintance with, th.e pastor and 
congregation of Westminster Central United Church. 

The Corps fell in at Rosedale Park at 10 a.m. There was an encourag- 
ing turn-out of Old Boys, most of whom were in uniform. The Corps 
left at 10.15, went south on Schoolfield Avenue and hy ijie usual route 
through Rosedale to Bloor Street. During the march the band made a 
great deal of noise, and the weird howl of its bagpipes became almost 
music in our ears ! The highlight of the journey was the "eyes right" given 
to the platoons at Branksonie Hall— it was duly recognized ( by some 
feminine giggles!). 

We entered Westminster Church shortly before eleven o'clock, and 
took our places in the seats reserved for us. Dr. Sedgewick i)reached the 
sermon — "Courage, the Footstool of the Virtues" — a very fitting one for 
those wearing His Majesty's uniform. Many Old Boys joined with us in 
the service, after which the Corps proceeded to Ramsden Park, where it 
boarded the 'buses for home, and one of Miss Robertson's good Sunday

On behalf of the Cadet Corps the Review takes this opportunity of

"There was a sound of revelry" that night, most of it caused by Frank 
Bogart and his orchestra. (Editor's Note — It has conie to niy notice that 
certain "eyes looked love to eyes which spake again." hut such repc^rts 
are suhjeci; to censorship at their source. ) 

It seemed quite fitting to see certain menihers of His Majesty's Cana- 
dian Air Force doing the "jitterbug." but we regret that the Highland 
qualities of our cadets were only superficial. Never (jnce was a word of 
Gaelic spoken, nor did a lad go into a frenzied fling o' the Highlands. The 
boys — for even the masters were young this night — enjoyed tiiemselves 

Refreshments were i)rovided. and after it the dancers b.'held a truly 
great spectacle on the part of the band. Torches were borne on high by 
brown-tunic'd guards, and the band marched to the southern end of tiie 
quadrangle, which is o])posite the dining-room. There it gave a dazzling 
demonstration of its skill, drums and pipes combining to star in a per- 
formance of "Cock o' the North." After this the band departed, marching 
the length of the quadrangle to the tune of "Bonnie Dundee." 

The school sold rosettes at a minimum price of fifty cents. Thev were 
well designed, combining the school colours and the Gordon tartan. Thev 
looked most becoming on the girls ; we understood that certain cadets pur- 
chased some for themselves (all is vanity). Many uniformed Old Boys 
were present. Coca-Cola was sold, and the profits helped to swell the 
general funds, which were turned over to the Canadian War Services Fund. 

The Gordons 

Because St. Andrew's College is af^liated with the 48th Highlanders 
it uses the Gordon tartan. 

The Gordons have their origin in the lowlands of Scotland. There are 
no fewer than one hundred and fifty-seven main branches of the clan which 
have been traced by family historians. 

A laird of Gordon in Berwickshire, near the English border, is said to 
have fallen in the battle of the Standard (1138). Sir Adam Gordon at 
first took the side of the English in the Scottish struggle for independence, 
and is the first member of the Gordon family to win a place in history. 
After Bannockburn he attached himself to Robert Bruce, and was granted, 
in 1318, the Lordship of Strathbogie. 

., General Lord Adam Gordon became commander of the forces in Scot- 
land in 1782 and governor of Edinburgh Castle in 1786. 


St. Andrew's College Review 

Among the many soldiers of fortune bearing the name of Gordon was 
Colonel John Gordon, one of the murderers of Wallenstein. Patric Gordon 
in the service of Charles X of Sweden in 1651 served against the Poles. 

In 1771 the Eighty-first Regiment of Gordon Highlanders was raised, 
and disbanded in 1783. 

The Ninety-second, raised in 1774, and the Old Seventy-fifth's, make 
up the present Gordon Highlanders.

Sports Editorial 

THE climax of the Little Big Four cricket schedule \v(jun(i up the 
' athletic programme for the school for the year 1940-41, aud although 
the men in white didn't roll home in a blaze of glory, they played and 
practiced hard, and as a result a very young eleven compiled a fair record. 
However, we failed to come through against the strong Little Big Four 
teams. Trinity and Upper Canada showed more jiower at the bat, whilst 
Ridley proved themselves superior in both fielding and batting, to Miis year's 
eleven. Harry Davis, although he didn't produce a winning side, did the 
utmost it was humanly possible with the scanty material ^.t hand, and 
deserves a great deal of credit. As was the case last year, this year's was 
a one-man bowling stalT. Personifying this department was Captain John 
Kilmer, a tall over-the-wicket bowler with an easy action. A medium-fast 
bowler, with a slight swerve and a leg break, he was hard to hit, and took 
numerous wickets in his five-man trap in the slips. John proved himself a 
very able leader on and olT the field, and deserves much credit for his 
leadership of a very inexperienced eleven. On the whole, the fielding this 
year was terrible, although Davis I, Chipman and Cobban distinguished 
themselves in this very important, though oft-neglected, phase of the game. 
Our batting was also weak, Chipman and Cobban being the only outstand- 
ing bats. The former, a good all-rounder, has an excellent eye, and made 
up for his odd careless defensive stroke by his powerful drives all round 
the wicket. A forceful batsinan, he went after his runs (of which he secured 
many) right froin the first over. The latter was a direct contrast to Chip- 
man. A careful bat, Cobban has many very polished defensive strokes 
which are gems to watch. He nevertheless proved that he could "open 

66 Sl Andrew's College Review 

his shoulders" to the balls which were off the wicket, and proved himself 
a dependable bat. Kilmer was a good bat, and Thiele occasionally found 
his range, but from here on the case was a sad one. McPherson, a fair 
bat, was very unreliable and didn't deliver. The rest of the batting list 
was a veritable nightmare, but their experience should stand our young 
tail-end batsmen in gooid stead for the years to come. 

We might take a lesson from this year's performance. The interest 
and fundamentals imparted b}- :Vlr. Macrae and Mr. Ives in Macdonald 
House, wane in the Upper School. Their fine work is wasted unless there is 
sufficient coaching in the years that follow. That the team had insuffi- 
cient practice is also very evident. Our tail-end batsmen had barely 
mastered the fundamental strokes, our bowlers were inexperienced, and our 
fielding showed a lack of everything, but mainly practice. Coaching and 
practice are really one item, for the latter cannot be accomplished properly 
without the former. Harry Davis has done the best possible in a minimum 
of time, and is an excellent coach — but he can only do the work of one man. 
A proposed remedy for St. Andrew's College cricket would be several of 
the masters (we suggest Mr. Macrae and Mr. Hewitt) acting as assistant 
coaches, under Mr. Davis as head coach. In this way. coaching and practice 
could go on in a number of nets, and the assistant coaches could drill in 
fielding and fundamental weaknesses, with Mr. Davis dealing in the finer 
points. We hope that this proposal will receive some attention, and feel 
confident that it could only result in success. 

It is with great reluctance that we say farewell to Mr. Griffiths, and 
we doff our bonnets to his great organization of physical education and 
athletics at St. Andrew's for the past decade. 

No school in Canada produces so many first-rate teams for its size. 
From the minimum of material he has turned out six First Teams annually, 
as well as younger school teams and intramural squads, for the sake of 
producing First Team material for the future. He has organized our sports 
to a singular degree, and has developed systems followed by coaches 
throughout the country. 

This year Griff organized a "Pool Patrol," which is in complete com- 
mand of the Lady Eaton Memorial Tank. The group coaches the boys of 
St. Andrew's and of the Aurcjra Boy Scout Troop in life-saving and swim- 
ming. The squad, ably headed by Kilgour and Sabiston, is doing a very 
commendable job in a province threaded with lakes and rivers, and are 
furthering the objectives of general water-safety education. The latter 
is a science which is both very practical and very essential, and which at 
the same time provides wholesome recreation and healthful exercise. The 
aim of the patrol is not to teach professional life-saving, but rather to

encourage more personal care on the part of the individual, and to give 
instruction on methods . which will aid others. 

So wishing Griff all of the best for the future, happy landing in his 
new field and less weeds on his farm, we say "au revoir." 

The most successful coach of the year has been Mr. Millward to whom 
much credit is due for giving St. Andrew's championship teams in Basket- 
ball and Track. The latter, a well-balanced and powerful squad of only 8 
(which broke 11 school records at the school meet) put together 12 firsts, 
4 seconds and a third for 7Z points, to bring S.A.C. its first championship 
at the Ontario District Meet. 

The basketball team ran up its second championship in as many years, 
although primarily a 2-man squad. In the latter I refer to Captain and 
Left Forward Pat Davis and centre star Bill Gourlay. two of the finest 
interscholastic basketball players in the country. The former is a fine 
field general and a very unselfish, accurate and deceiving passer, whilst the 
latter is an excellent all-rounder, with a variety of shots from all round 
the basket. His set shot off his finger tips was particularly eft'ective. 

Mr. Sweeney also scored his second championship in two years. In- 
tying with Trinity for the top rung in the hockey conference. He. too, 
deserves much credit for turning out a fighting squad which always went 

At this point we must mention the revival of the U.C.C. game, in which 
the College sextet proved far too powerful for the local lads. Lead by 
centre George Mara, who skates like a pro. Upper Canada showed terrific 
strength in all departments, and literally skated rings around St. Andrew's. 
The College can be justly proud of its great hockey teams. 

In closing we salute Ridley for recapturing from us Football and 
Cricket championships, and in so doing monopolizing Little Big Four 
honours. The Orange and Black continue to show themselves great 
athletes, and what's more important, great sportsmen.

Sl Andrew's College Review 




On May 31st the First Eleven opened their Little Big Four schedule 
against Trinity College, on the latter's grounds, at Port Hope. The day 
was cloudy and the pitch hard and fast, offering little advantage to spin 
bov^lers. Kilmer won the toss and elected to bat. Cobban and McPherson 
opened, and batting carefully, amassed 21 runs before the former was 
bowled by Lambert. McPherson was caught almost im.mediately after- 
wards, but Chipman and Thiele struck up a partnership and the runs 
mounted. Both worked themselves in carefully, and when Chipman was 
finally out l.b.w., things looked bright for St. Andrew's with the score 
97 for 3. Chipman had amassed a brilliant 55, which included six boundary 
fours and a boundary six. His eye in, he was driving balls all around the 
wicket without discretion, and with terrific power behind each drive. 
Thiele continued with Kilmer, and both were retired with creditable 
innings, the former with 18 and the latter with 12. From here on our luck 
left us. and with the exception of Opie (11), the rest of the batsmen went 
down in order. The School were all out for 130, mainly due to the fine 
bowling of Lambert, who in 14 overs, 5 of which were maidens, took 5 
wickets for 23 runs. At 3.30 St. Andrew's took to the field, but our spin 
bowlers found their task practically an impossible one on the hard wicket, 
and Trinity runs quickly mounted, as they drove hard our straight bowl- 
ing. Kilmer did an iron-man performance in bowling 21 overs, and 
Cobban's fielding was very commendable. The clever batting of 
Lemesurier. Jones, and "Stone-wall Caldwell", the batting and bowling of 
Lambert, and the wicket-keeping of Duggan I, were towers of strength 
to the home eleven. 

Final score: Trinity 169 for 4, St. Andrew's LSO. E. M. B. 

70 St. Andrew's College Review 


The second Little Big Four game was that against Ridley College, 
played on our home grounds. It was a very fine day and the pitch was 
in excellent condition. Ridley fielded a very powerful team, featuring hard- 
hitting and accurate bat^, and tricky bowling. The St. Andrew's eleven, 
a much younger and a very inexperienced team, played hard and gave of 
their best, and although their performance was a creditable one for these 
reasons, they were no match for the seasoned Ridley cricketers. It is 
interesting to note that only four times did the Ridley batsmen hit flys, 
and that two of these were caught and the other two were dropped catches. 
This would illustrate the importance of keeping the ball on the ground. 
Ridley having won the toss, batted first, and with the exception of Kilmer, 
they hit our bowling at will. Drope and Cameron opened, and from the 
outset it was apparent that they were after runs. When the former was 
caught at point on a fine catch by Davis I. things looked bright, but we 
were sadly disillusioned. Cameron and Groves struck up a brilliant partner- 
ship, and were driving the ball strongly, all around the wicket. Cameron 
was finally bowled after a very fine 45. and Graves, having survived a 
loud appeal for a tick, together with Hague, continued till hnich. when 
play was halted with the score-board reading 133 for 2. The issue looked 
desperate, but after lunch things appeared more encouraging. Kilmer had 
found his range, and was bringing a very fast ball down hard on the speedy 
wicket. At this time he took 3 wickets for as many runs, retiring Hague, 
McCrea and Snively. Graves went down for 62 after a brilliant innings, 
bowled by Clarkson. Our luck didn't hold, however, and strong innings 
by Schmon. Cronyn and Scandrett brought the Ridley total up to a con- 
spicuous 216. At 3.15 St. Andrew's started their innings, but it was little 
more than a procession. Chipman, Kilmer and Clarkson hit the double 
figures, but the rest were a sad story, and we were all out for 50 runs. 
Davis I. Chipman. Cobban, Pollock and Davis II had fielded well, but the 
rest were terrible, in this department. Ridley completely outclassed us. and 
though our inexperience will excuse our batting and bowling, there was no 
excuse for our sloppy fielding. Kilmer played very well. Besides having 
a good innings at bat, his 7 for 38 is a very praiseworthy performance 
against so powerful an eleven as Ridley. Almost all the Ridley batsmen 
had good innings, and special credit must be given McCrea and Graves for 
their very fine bowling. The latter was possibly the star of the day, 
amassing a magnificent 62 at bat. and taking 4 wickets for 13 runs. 

Final score : Ridley 216, St. Andrew's 50.

St. Andrew's College Review 71 


On June 7th the First Eleven met Upper Canada on the latter's grounds, 
in the final Little Big Four game of the season. It was a sultry day with 
scattered showers, but the pitch was nevertheless in fair condition. Upper 
Canada won the toss and promptly went to hat. Ross and Davies opened, 
but after only 4 runs, both were dismissed, the former on a fine throw by 
Chipman and the latter on a beautiful ball by Kilmer. Beveridge and Aird 
followed, but their luck was no better than that of their opening batsmen, 
and 4 wickets were down for 1 1 runs. But now Foulds and Mills were 
batting, and with the former blocking and the latter hitting, a brilliant 
partnership was formed, and the runs mounted. Mills was finally out 
l.b.w. ofT Kilmer, after a fine innings of 39. which included five boundary 
fours in a row. Burden and Gibson followed with fair innings and then 
Chipman lifted Foulds ofif stump right out of the ground, on a fast swerve. 
The latter, batting very carefully, had compiled a creditable 26. Bebell 
was run out a few balls after taking his guard, and with the score 105 for 9, 
St. Andrew's appeared to be on top of the play. But now Bremner and 
Jeflfs were at the wicket and formed a fine partnership that resulted in 50 
runs, before the former was finally caught in the slips off Kilmer. With 
the exception of Captain Kilmer, who as usual bowled very steadily, our 
bowling was very weak. A few of our fielders played well, notably Chip- 
man, who played brilliantly in this department, and Davis, whose long 
throws were always right to the wicket-keeper. On the whole, however, 
our fielding was poor. St. Andrew's batsmen, facing a total of 155, were 
the victims of a combination of excellent College fielding and hard luck. 
Our opening bats. Cobban and Thiele, were dismissed for round scores. 
The former had been caught on a very hard drive to mid-otif. Chipman. 
who followed with a fine 19, was caught on almost the identical play, and 
after he was out. our batting, with the exception of Lappin (23). was 
very weak. Young and inexperienced, our tail-end batsmen were very 
nervous as a result of the load placed on their shoulders by our leading 
bats. Nevertheless they played hard, and their experience can only stand 
them in good stead for next year. 

Final score: Upper Canada 155, St. Andrew's 70.

Little Big Four All-Star Cricket Team 

When Little Big Four athletics have been at their best, people have 
remarked on the idea of having a Little Big Four All-Star selection, 
with a view to seeing how good a team could be turned out. We decided 
to act upon this idea and it is interesting to note the results. The sup- 
port received was most encouraging and we might add that, as can be 
seen from the polling, those who made the selections were completely 
unbiased as to their choice. 

On Friday, June 13th, letters were sent out to Ridley, Trinity and 
Upper Canada, requesting that the sports editors of the school magazines 
of these seats of higher learning should furnish immediately a selection 
for a Little Big Four all-star cricket team. On Monday morning came 
an encouraging letter from J. M. G. Smart, sports editor of the Ridley 
school magazine, Acta Ridleana, containing his choice for the team. Later 
that same morning we received a telegram from the Record at Trinity, 
in which another eleven had been chosen. On Tuesday, Ross MacMillan 
(substituting for Bob Fairhead of the College Times) made the selection 
for Upper Canada, which we received by telephone. We now had 
selections from all four of the Little Big Four schools, and we proceeded 
to tabulate the results. Graves and Drope of Ridley, Lemesurier of 
Trinity, Mills of Upper Canada, and our own Chipman of St. Andrews, 
were uananimously selected. McCrae, Robertson, Kilmer, Beveridge, 
Aird, Lambert and Duggan I completed the team, which, on account 
of a tie, included twelve men. The team would boast eight first-class 
bowlers, including Robertson, a sensational fast bowler, Kilmer, an 
excellent "length-bowler," and Graves, McCrae, Mills Beveridge, Lam- 
bert and Duggan, all experienced spin-bowlers. All twelve men are ex- 
cellent bats, their batting average as a whole being approximately 38. 
The fielding, led by McCrae, would also be of a very distinctive order. 
Aird would make a good wicket-keeper. A squad like this might 
"go places." 

We feel that the selection of Little Big Four all-star teams in football 
and cricket in the future will serve to heighten interest in these sports, 
and to give something for the outstanding athletes in the Little Big Four 
really to aim at. 

FinalK-, we should like to thank very sincerely the Record, the Acta 
Ridleana and the College Times for their generous and very co-operative 
support, without which this all-star selection would have been impossible. 

The Tabulation of votes is on the next page.

Wednesday, May 21st, Games Day, climaxed what was probably the 
greatest week in track and field events in the history of the school. In 
the events, run off over a period of seven days, twelve new school records

On Saturda\-, Ma\- 24th, the track team, consisting of onI>- eight boys, 
journeyed to Lake Cotichiching to take part in the district meet held 
there. For the first time in the history of the school, the team emerged 
victorious in this ver\- important meet, as 12 firsts, 4 seconds, and a third 
were put together for 73 points. In the senior group, Brickenden and 
Gourlax- Loth did excellentK', the former coming first in the pole-vault 
and third in the 220 \ard dash and the latter winning the shot-put. 
Jolliffe did well, coming second in the 440 >ard dash. In the intermediate 
section, O Brien won 1st place honours in the 100 >ds., 200 \ds. and broaP 
jump for a ''triple". Sabiston won both the hurdles and shot-put in fine 
style, and in the middle-distance events, E. M. Ballon showed his ability 
by winning the 440 \d. dash and the half-mile run, both of which he 
finished at remarkable speed. In the junior section, J. D. Ballon won

This June two members of the Boy Scout Troop of Aurora distinguished 
themselves by rescuing a boy at Richardson's Pond. 

Atteridge, also an Aurora boy, found himself in difficulties when he 
left a raft and attempted to swim to shore. Scout Gunton supported 
Atteridge in the water and called a second Scout, Bryan. The two Scouts 
brought the boy ashore and prevented a drowning accident. 

The interesting side of the incident, to Andreans, was the fact that the 
boys responsible for the rescue had been trained by the Life Guard Corps 
of St. Andrew's College.

1st basketball team 

Front Row — J. A. McN'ean, \V. B. Gourlav. J. E. Davis (Captain), C. E. Spence, 

R. H. A. Kerr. 
Back Row — W. M. Hueston (Manager^, J. E. Kilmer, J. D. Eraser, Mr. Millward. 

Once again this year, the basketball team successfully completed a rigid 
schedule, winning 9 of 11 games, and convincingly defended the "Prep" 
League title. 

The team, which early gave promise of being a decidedly youthful and 
inexperienced squad, developed rapidly into a speedy and high-scoring 
quintet, mainly through the very capable and inspired coaching and patience 
of Mr. Millward. Also the presence of the high-scoring pair, Gourlay and 
Davis, both exceptionally fine players, constituted the difference between 
an average team and the very good one which it proved to be. 

Of the less experienced players Spence and McVean showed the most 
improvement as the season progressed, and together with Kilmer. Kerr. 
Eraser and O'Brien, all gave most creditable account of themselves. 

Unfortunately for the School, Davis, Gourlay, Kilmer and McV'ean 
have graduated this year and; it goes without saying, have left a large order 
to be filled next season. Nevertheless with Fraser^ Kerr. Spence and 
O'Brien returning, it is hoped that they will pro\4de the nucleus for another 
fine cage squad. 

First team colours were awarded to Davis (Capt.), Gourlay, Spence, 
McVean and Fraser. 

St. Andrew's College Review 8i 

The school team commenced the season with a series of 3 pre-season 
exhibition games, one each with Pickering, Newmarket High School and 
Aurora High School. Tliere was little at stake in these games, which were 
arranged merely to gain experience for the younger players. Pickering 
defeated the School in the tirst game, but thereafter the team soon demon- 
strated the possibility of developing into a high-scoring and sound defensive 
scjuad. defeating both Newmarket and Aurora high schools. 

S.A.C. 25— U.T.S. 24 
The first league game was played at the U.T.S. gymnasium and after 
an unusually rough and ragged contest, the School emerged victorious. 
Gourlay with 12 points and Davis with 9, led the scoring for the school. 

In this game the School team easily redeemed themselves for an earlier 
set-back at the hands of Pickering. It was the first home game of the 
schedule and once again S.A.C. won convincingly. This time Davis led the 
scoring, with 21 points, followed by Gourlay who garnered 15 although he 
was closely guarded. 

S.A.C. 55— U.C.C. 15 
In the third game of the schedule, played at the S.A.C. gymnasium, 
the School literally over-powered a most inexperienced Upper Canada 
squad and piled up an amazing score of 55 as against 15. Bill Gourlay 
scored 19 points in the first half and contented himselV with 4 in the 
second, to lead again the scoring parade. Davis with 13 points and Spence 
with 6 both played tine basketball, as did O'Brien with 5 points. 

In the return game with Pickering the School suffered its first loss in 
the league schedule. The game was played at the Pickering gymnasium. 
Gourlay and Davis played well for the School but were unable to deliver 
their customary scoring punch and being closely guarded each scored 8 
points. For Pickering: Dewar, Frost and Bamford played well. Frost 
led the scoring with 11 points. 

S.A.C. 34— U.T.S. 19 

It was imperative that the School win this game, for in losing. 

Pickering would have replaced S.A.C. in the league standing. With this 

in mind the team played inspired basketball, defeating U.T.S. by 15 points. 

The Toronto school, which was inclined to over-guard, suffered 16 personal 


Si. Andrew's College Review 

fouls which did little good. Gourlay and Davis scored 13 and 12 points 
respectively, and Mc\'ean followed with 5 for the School. 


The School defeated U.C.C. in the return game at Toronto. The first 
half was unpleasantly close, the score remaining 18-17 in our favour. How-

tired from continually pushing the bus out of snow drifts they managed 
to emerge with a 7-4 victory. 

In the first period Johnston opened the scoring for St. Andrew's with 
a tally after about 5 minutes of play. MacMillan also scored, making it 
2-0 for S.A.C. at the end of the first period.

St. .Andrew's College Review 



THIS year has shown the greatest enthusiasm for skiing at St. Andrew's. 
The School was represented for the first time at the Bethany Ski- 
meet and although no actual prizes were won we succeeded in making a 
good showing. Frequent trips were arranged every Wednesday, Saturday 
and Sunday in the School truck to Summit Ski Club and were m.uch appre- 
ciated. Refreshments were obtained at the club-house and "half-way" 
after a strenuous tramp over the trails. Many Andreans noticed members 
from B.S.S., Havergal. and Branksome. but found little time or energy to 
spare on the fair sex (as far as we can tell). There were no serious 
accidents except for Graham breaking a small tree on "poison-ivy" and 
Cody breaking his skiis on '999". People seemed to be sprawled over the 
track when Hunter and Stobie rushed around a hidden turn ; luckily they 
escaped with nothing but unkindly thoughts. This matter of blind turns 
and sprawling people has been taken up with the proper authorities. In 
spite of all this confusion we had an excellent skiing season. 

The skiers wish to thank the School for the support they have shown 
this year, and although we have to shovel the rinks to make up for this 
privilege we hope it will continue next year. We hope that we may have 
the opportunity next year to ski at night at Summit.

T is hard to believe that we have come to the end of another School year. 

It seems that it was only yesterday that we were trying to remember j 
the names of new boys. But now they are part of the School life. Indeed, 
it seems that you have known them for a good bit longer than only one 
year! As we look back, we feel that the year has been a fine one in all 
respects. Every boy in the House has taken his part in the various sports 
and hobbies. Under the direction of Mr. Ouchterlony, music has pro- 
gressed, and many boys are learning how to play the piano. We are looking 
forward to another good year and we feel confident that our teams will 
maintain, or even surpass, the high standard that was set this year. 

* * * 

The library enjoyed a busy year. Over three hundred and fifty books 
were taken out while books by Westerman, T. T. Jeans and Lt.-Col. 
Brerton were donated. Although there has been an increase in the amount 
of Westerman books read, there has been a great variety in reading, includ- 
ing those of such writers as Sabatini, Buchan. Dumas, Ballantyne and 
Cooper. Books were read to the greatest extent during March when 
seventy-five books were taken out. Altogether, the library has played its 
part in another successful school year. 

* * * 

Ideal skiing conditions made possible a very successful annual ski race. 
The first six contestants broke last year's new record, Beverly winning for 
the third successive time with the excellent speed of 31 minutes and Z? 
seconds. Crombie came in second, only 18 seconds behind Beverly. Gar- 
ratt II following to take third place. Skiing seems to be progressing, con- 
sidering that a few years ago the fastest time ever made on the course was 
just under 38 minutes.

This year Macdonald House showed excellent enthusiasm in the boxing 
and there were many exceptionally good fights. The youngest member of 
the House never seemed to get tired and kept hitting every second of the 
rounds. Much credit, however, must be given to the older boys, who, for 
the most part, showed excellent style and very good all-round boxing. 

* * * 

It is very seldom that we are given the opportunity of welcoming a 

94 St. Andreivs College Review 

former master back to the School, especially a master who will always be 
very enthusiastically greeted by Macdonald House. We speak, of course, 
of Mr. Macrae who after a year at Queen's University has returned to us. 

Welcome back. Sir. 

* * * 

The pool has been very popular during the year. In fact there are 
some bovs who would rather swim than eat or sleep. Thirteen members 
of the House have won life saving awards this year. Five having won their 
Bronze Medallions. One boy, Wynne, won the much credit bar to his 
bronze, and thanks are due to Mr. Griffiths and his recently formed Pool 
Patrols who have given much of their time to the teaching of swimming 

and life saving.

Now that the holidays are looming up in the not-too-distant future we 
look forward to the happy, summer days of leisure ; but are they to be days 
of leisure ? To be sure they will be happy ones. Can we as part of a great 
democratic empire, fighting for its freedom, afford to spend the summer in 
ease? Of course the majority of the House will spend a carefree summer 
as young boys are not expected, as in Germany, to enter Nazi Youth 
Camps. However, we sincerely hope that all the senior boys in the House 
will spend the greater part of the holidays helping the farmers of this coun- 
try produce food to feed the heroic citizens of Britain. 

The Macdonald House Plays 

MACDONALD HOUSE presented two plays this year, both of which 
were one-act performances. The first of these was the Monkey's 
Pazv. It was one of those gruesome plays, not only, involving real tragedy, 
but also, a ghastly stretching of the imagination. For entertainment pur- 
poses it was unsuited to production in a school. For purposes of acting 
it was wisely chosen, and was well directed and well cast. It was acted 
well enough to leave a deep impression, which is one of the goals of the 

The scene was the living room of Mr. and Mrs. White's house. The 
occupants were an elderly couple whose son worked in a factory. Rapmund 
took the part of Mrs. \\'hite. and acted well. He really gave the impres- 
sion of a sorrowing and bereaved mother. His acting since last year has 
improved immensely. Crombie had the rather difficult part of Mr. White ; 
a man's distress is sometimes more difficult to express than that of a woman. 
Beverly, as Herbert, the son, suited well a part which required little acting. 
Park, as Sergeant-Major Morris, was very much himself. He could have 

Sl y^ndrew's College Review 95 

put himself more into the part, and he could have told the gruesome story 
a little less casually. In this play the scenery was simple and gave the 
impression of part of the small cottage in which two such people as Mr. 
and Mrs. White would live. 

The other ])lay performed was the End uj flic Beginning, by Sean 
O'Casey. It was a farcical mockery of the uselessness of a man at house- 
hold duties. Of course, the scene was Irish ; an oddly built Irish cottage, 
the living-room of which served as dining-room, kitchen, library and music- 

Jones ])ut himself over as an Irish biddy with a good Welsh accent. He 
played the housewife well, but did not act quite old enough. Kennedy 
took the part of Darry, the man of the house who turned house-maid. 
Kennedy put the play across. In fact, he overacted a part which required, 
instead of pathos and bliss, the fears and delights of a middle aged Irish 
peasant. Eddis played Barry. Carry's studious and clumsy partner at the 
village "concert". He played his role well and convincingly ; he is worthy 
of much praise for his conscientious care of properties and helping of his 
fellow on the stage. 

For this last play there were numerous properties. Outstanding were 
the authentic-looking sky (for whose illumination we are indebted to 
Heintzman), the "Biggar-Badger" pump, from which flowed real water, 
and an Ouchterlony chicken. Potatoes, dishes, a phonograph record and 
an imaginary cow on a strong rope, added to the scene of chaos for which 
the scene called. We cannot omit to mention the angry clock, whose 
internal rumblings were so terrifying to Darry. Mr. Tottenham effected 
some miraculous changes of make-up off-stage. The shift between the 
first and second plays was carried out in good time, thanks to the stage 
manager and his assistants. 

Our one regret is the unfortunate attitude of the School when required 
to be an audience — an attitude of restlessness and thoughtlessness for those 
on the stage. This attitude was marked at the performance of The Bat, 
and persisted at the performance of the Monkey's Pazv. Everybody hopes 
that this attitude will be revised next year. 

The Lower School plays this year w^re both put over well — I have 
heard no word to the contrary and there would be no excuse for such a 
condemnation ; Mr. Ives is owed praise in this respect. His directing of the 
Monkex's Pazv made it acceptable for its acting. He and those who worked 
with him — actors or assistants — have definitely contributed to the dramatics 
at Saint Andrew's.

The Unfortunate Cow-Punchers 

Two boys went out to hike one day, 
Their spirits were quite high. 
The bees were flying through the air, 
The birds were in the sky. 

They tramped ak:)ng for quite some time, 
Past road and ditch and creek. 
Till coming to a hilly spot, 
They quickly gained the peak. 

Such a view they ne'er had seen. 
In all their short young life. 
The horizon swept beyond them far. 
Its edge was like a knife. 

"What shall we do?" the younger asked. 
"The sight is so sublime." 
"Let's chase those cows," replied his friend, 
"We still have lots of time." 

The boys raced wildly for the place, 
Where they could have their fun. 
But failed to see another pair. 
The farmer and his son. 

They ran straight at the browsing herd, 
With shouts to chase them off 
And raced across the grassy field. 
Till one began to cough. 

The other stopped and then perceived. 
The farmer coming near. 
He warned his comrade with a yell. 
And left the field in fear. 

But plowing fields, and stacking wheat, 
Can make a farmer strong. 
He overtook the two young boys, 
Whose legs were not as long. 

St. Andrew's College Review 97 

He dragged tlie culprits to the school, 
And showed them to the Head. 
He then explained the dreadful deed, 
And many things were said. 

The punishment was short and hard. 

As soon the two boys learned. 

But if they hadn't chased the cows, 

The pain they'd not have earned. \i. Campbell, Lower H.

it off by hand — only to have it fall to the ground in pieces. It is then that 
you wake up to the fact that in your impatience to take off you have for- 
gotten the stabilizers. If you have learned your lesson you will fix up your

may have the thrill of seeing your dreams come true. 

If anyone wants to train his nerves and overcome impatience I strongly 
advise him to build some model aeroplanes.

Encounter with a Werewolf 

As the clock struck midnight, I glanced up from the book I was reading 
to look at my dog, which was lying at my feet. Blinking his eyes, 
he hit the carpet with his wagging tail. How silly of me ! It was my old 
fear returning. Yet I shouldn't after three years, and besides, it is a man 
that can be a werewolf, and not a dog. 

I never believed that werewolves existed, and I imagine I wouldn't now, 
had it not been for the experience I had in a small village in Southern 
France. The superstitious people had a legend about a werewolf, which, 
they assured me, was quite true. 

It seems that a voodoo priest, condenmed to be hanged for making a 
human sacrifice, threatened that his spirit would return as a werewolf, and 
that, although in the daytime he would be a natural person, from midnight 
till dawn he would be a vicious werewolf, roaming mercilessly around the 
district, killing brutally anyone he met. 

I ridiculed this tale, but a certain peasant in the inn told me an incident 
which, if true, confirmed it : one night as he was watching the graveyard 
from a nearby house he saw a man enter ; as the church bell nearby toll'd 
the hour of midnight, the man in the graveyard turned into a werewolf. 
The manner in which the peasant told this story would have made me 
believe him, had it not been that I didn't believe werewolves existed. He 
assured me again, telling me that many had been mangled to death by this 
terrible Loiip-Garou. I told him that if I ever had time, he could show me 
his beast. After some hesitation he accepted, saying the werewolf didn't 
have enough will-power to attack two people. 

I went to my room — a fair-sized room on the ground floor with a 
veranda opening to the back where was the inn's vineyard. .A.s I was about 
to retire for the night, the landlord came in to see if there was anything 
he could do for me. I replied that I had everything, but wondered why 
there was some weed over the door. He told me it was some wolf's-bane 
to keep the werewolf out. 

Lying awake thinking of what I had heard about the werewolf, I never 
realized what time it was until I heard a church bell strike twelve. Now 
the werewolf was roaming — of all the silly superstitious nonsense ! Nothing 
happened. Once I heard a howl — not that of a moon-sick dog, but a deep 
blood-thirsty one. I was thinking of when I would leave for Bordeaux 
when I was brought to my senses by a padded foot-fall on the veranda. I 
sat up sufficiently to watch the open door. A large dark beast was coming 
towards it. On the threshold it stopped, and I noticed two luminous eyes. 
A set of long ivory-white fangs appeared, and then the animal turned, and 
disappeared in the vineyard. 

Sl Andrew's College Review 99 

I remember awakening the next morning with the feeling that some- 
thing was wrong. I went out for a walk, and, passing by the church, I 
decided to go in to talk with the ])riest, with whom I had made an 
acquaintance the day before. When he asked me if the werewolf was worry- 
ing me, I remembered the incident of the night, and told it all to him. He 
said that the wolf's-bane had saved me. But fearing lest I should meet the 
werewolf again, he gave me some holy water in a bottle. He assured me 
that if I used it right it would protect me. 

That evening after supper I met the peasant who had seen the wolf and 
I told him how I had seen it too. It seemed that the incident made us life- 
long friends, and, before I knew what I was doing, it was arranged that we 
should go hunting for the werewolf. 

A full moon reflecting on the tombstones made it possible to see as we 
waited for midnight. I was toying with the bottle in my pocket, indeed. I 
believe I had it in my hands, when the old church bell struck twelve o'clock. 
Nothing happened. Uttering a nervous laugh, I turned to make a remark 
to my companion. There, to my horror, crouched on all fours, with glim- 
mering eyes and sharp long fangs was the monstrous black werewolf. I 
was too terrified to move. I no longer had control over my body. I would 
haAC cried out, but my tongue clove to the roof of my mouth. Just as the 
brute sprang I half-heartedly threw the bottle in his direction. What 
happened then I still cannot explain or clarify. 

There was a sound of breaking glass followed by a burst of white smoke 
from the werewolf. As the smoke increased the beast gradually disappeared. 
Then in the smoke I saw a black man gazing fixedly upwards, an expres- 
sion of fear upon his face. As the spectacle faded, I fell to the ground. By 
the lo--^'. wailing, half-brute, half-human cry that followed, 1 could tell that 
the evil spirit would exist no longer on this earth.

Adventures on the Atlantic 

/^ XE day in November. I set sail on the Furness Bermuda Line's luxury 
^*^ liner. The Queen of Bermuda. The voyage was between Bermuda 
and New ^'ork. 

It was about twelve noon on the first day out when we saw smoke on 
the horizon, and a British light crusier was lying in wait for something. A 
few minutes later we heard a loud explosion. The smoke got heavier and 
as we drew nearer, we saw that the smoke came from the German liner, 
Columbus. We reversed engines and soon came to a standstill. After a 
minute or so, we started lowering lifeboats to pick up the survivors of the 

loo St. Andrew's College Review 

burning ship. \\'hile the boat crews were picking up the survivors the res't 
of the crew tried to put the fire out. But it was in "vain. We picked up 
92 sailors from the German ship while the cruiser picked up 44. A few 
seconds later the hull began to crack and loud explosions were heard from 
the fuel supply. 

Later we found out that the cruiser did not shoot any shells but that 
the crew had scuttled the Columbus. 

In the middle of the second day, the sea began to heave and nearly 
everyone was sea sick. 

At night when I went down to dinner, I was greeted by a strange sight. 
There were about five tables on and the rest were tied down by ropes. 
At each table there were about four people, and every time the boat lurched 
the people would grab hold of the table and slide all over the room. When 
the boat righted itself again the waiters would dash in with the food and 
then back to the nearest rail. 

After dinner I went to my cabin where I spent the rest of the night. 
As I was going to bed, I noticed that there was a noise of water pouring 
in, so I looked at my porthole and found that the waves had broken the 
latch. I rang for the steward and when he came I was almost swimming 
in two or three feet of water ! He opened the door and a rush of water 
met him. Then I was able to set my feet on the floor with only a quarter 
of an inch of w^ater on it. 

Two days behind schedule, we arrived in New York harbour leaning 
to starboard because the cargo had shifted during the storm. In spite of 
all our experiences on the rough seas, we had arrived safely.

The Reason 

Brave Canada and all her sons. 
Are ofiF to war mid the roll of drums. 
Freedom is their only cause. 
Freedom by merry England's laws. 

Canada is our own dear land, 
Not one made up of desert sands. 
But one made up of rich brown soil, 
And yet her sons in war must toil. 

Fair fields of wheat and corn and rye. 

That they have tilled in years gone by. 

These they must leave, because of one, 

A madman and a pagan Hun. Stevenson.

Three Runs— Not Out 

IMAGINE yourself about to bat in a game of Cricket. You know 
nothing of the game except the barest fundamentals; which everyone 
has been hammering into you ; and in the excitement you can't remember 
half of those. On top of this imagine that you and the other batsmen have 
to get five runs to win the game. For this was the position of one James 
Henderson. Now imagine you are at the edge of a large green Cricket 
field, bordered by trees, where this game is in progress, and that you are 
able to read Henderson's mind. Perhaps this is what you would find. 


"Out L.B.W." 

I guess that means I'm in. What is it I say, "Middle and Wicket?" 
That couldn't be right maybe its "Middle and Wide." Yes, it must be. 

"You forgot your bat" somebody yells. 

Oh ! yes, how stupid of me ! I can't play cricket without a bat, can I ? 

"Good luck." savs the outcoming batter. "Oh — thank you, I'll need 
it," was my reply. Boy, you get lots of attention around here, everybodys 
clapping me. Here comes another fellow to meet me, must be the batter. 

"Watch that small-bowler's ofif-balls and that tall fellow's a fiend with 
full-pitches. You'd better stone-wall most of the time," advises my fellow- 

"Oh. yes," said I. trying to look wise. W'hat on earth does he mean 
by ofif-balls and stone- walling ? Well, at least I know what a full-pitch is. 

Oh! here I am at the wicket. Now, what do I do? That fellow in the 
white coat looks annoyed. 

"A\V11, what do you want?" he yells. 

"Who, me?" What . . . Oh, yes ... a middle . . . an . . . 

"Middle, it is." 

Boy, I'm glad I kept my mouth shut then. Well, here comes the first 
ball. How do you stone-wall? Guess I'll swing and hope for the best. 

"Whack !" 

"Come on! Quick!" somebody yells. 

Well, there's one run. I guess I just stand here while that other fellow 
bats. Boy, that was a nice swing I think I'll try it next time 

I02 St. Andrew's College Review 

"Run, run, you idiot, or you'll l>e out." 

Boy, that was a close shave. I guess I should have started sooner. 

Well, here comes my second ball. 

"No Ball !"• 

"Hey what?" There go my bails, I got one run anyway. Sadly, I 
start to walk away from the pitch. 

"You're not out." somebody yells, "that ball didn't count." 

Boy that's good, here goes for another try. Ah! a nice easy ball. I'll 
smack this over those trees . . . why there must be a hole in the bat . . . 
I missed that ball altogether . . . musn't do that again . . . 


\Miat on earth do I do now? Everybody's moving around. What's 
the other batter doing? Oh, he must be getting ready to bat. I guess I'll 
just stand here. "Will you move over, please." somebody says. "Oh! 
yes, of course." Boy. they won't fool me this time. I'm going to get a lead- 
off. Oh gosh he missed it. ^^'hew ! that was a close shave. I guess you 
can take too much of a start. 

Boy ! that was a nice shot. I've got to get one run and we'll have won ! 
boy, I can't miss. Here it comes, "Whack", gosh it's a fly. he's going to 
catch it. No, it went right through his fingers. We've won ! 

Now, its his turn, why — he's out. We've won anyway and I got three 
runs not out. C. Crombie. Form HI. 

The Test 

The chestnut tree upon the hill, 
Which stood through wind and rain. 
One stormy night was earthward blown 
And never stood again. 

Upon that stormy windswept hill 

A poplar stood this test, 

Although it creaked and bent and bowed. 

It stood, and proved the best. 

On that same night through wind and rain 
A mighty pine did stand. 
The wind and rain who broke its boughs. 
Still blows to beat the band. 

And so you see from all these trees 
The one which is the best 
Doth bow and creak and downward bend 
And usually stands the test.

Macdonald House Hockey

Back Row—^lr. Millward (.Housemaster), J. H. Park, J. W. Kennedy, J. B. Wynne, 

Mr. Ives. Coach. 

IN the Winter Term, all the boys in the House were divided into four 
groups. The First Hockey Squad of about eighteen boys contained all 
the best players ; the Second Squad had about the next eighteen boys who 
were either too small or lacked sufificient skill to belong to the First Squad ; 
the Beginners Squad was composed of the real learners who spent a goodly 
portion of their time either sitting down on the ice or hanging on to the 
boards at the side of the rink ; and lastly, there were a few boys who, for 
special reasons, were given permission to ski as their major sport. 

The First Squad was very lucky in being able to arrange six games 
with the Aurora Public School. These games were all enjoyed very much. 
The Aurora boys certainly showed us what determination and pep can do 
in a hockey game. Time after time we found that we were simply not fast 
enough, that we lacked the extra little bit of speed which makes all the 
difference between a goal and just another attempt. We would like to 
thank Aurora for these games and to congratulate Sutton, in particular, 
on his fine exhibitions of skating and stick handling against us. 

I04 Si- A?idrew's College Review 

Our First Team played two games with a Lakefield Preparatory School 
team — winning at home by 5-2 and losing away by 1-2. Both these games 
were very keenly contested. Lakefield played a good, clean game on both 
occasions and had the best of the play except during the last period of the 
first game. Our team was strengthened for these games by the addition 
of Ballon II who played d-efence for us. The team centainly missed Ballon 
during the hockey season for he had been a tower of strength to us in our 
rugbv team. \\\'nne and Garratt were our most efifective forwards. How- 
ever, the trip to Lakefield will long be remembered after the scores of the 
games have been forgotten. The journey from S.A.C. to Lakefield actually 
took us eight hours. Many times our big thirty-two passenger bus became 
stuck fast in the snow drifts and was only re-started after long periods of 
jjushing by all the Upper School boys we had with us on the trip. At Lake- 
field, we played a very short game and started homewards at a late hour. 
\\^e battled through many snow-drifts between Peterborough and Port 
Hope and. upon arriving at the latter place, we discovered that the main 
Toronto Highway was unpassable. At about midnight, we asked Trinity 
College School if they could put us up for the night. Although they already 
had some other teams, which had been stranded like ourselves, they at once 
generously ofifered to let us stay in the Junior School. By the small hours 
of the morning, we were all settled down for the night, either on the floor 
of the gym or of a spare dormitory. Lucky indeed were the boys who got 
a bed in the Junior School Infirmary. The next day, T.C.S. entertained 
us to breakfast and lunch. Thanks once again T.C.S. for yoiu' hospitality 
and kindness. 

A week after this surprise visit, we returned under normal circumstances 
to play a game with their Littleside team. We managed to win a very well 
contested game by the score of 3-0. T.C.S. were certainly unlucky not 
to score as their ganging attack had us hemmed in throughout long periods 
of the game, ^^'ynne starred for S.A.C, getting two goals and an assist. 
When T.C.S. visited us the game and score were very similar. We managed 
to win 3-1, but our visitors seemed to have fully fifty per cent of the play. 
We owned most of our success in both these games to the good goal -keeping 
by O'Brian, the consistent defence of Kennedy and the speedy break aways 
of Wynne. Garratt and McKenzie. 

One of our last games of the season was against a team of boys from 
Christ Church in Toronto. From the beginning, the game was played with 
a great deal of spirits. The final score was 3-2 for S.A.C. Kennedy, who 
had played for Christ Church the previous year, was our most efifective 
player. Many times his determined checking saved our goal keeper from 
having to deal with really hard shots. In the attack too, he played an impor- 
tant part, getting one goal and an assist. 

Si. Andrew's College Review 105 

The V'wsX Hockey Team ended the season with tlie very fair record of 
Iiaving won six games out of eight played. The team showed jilenty of 
spirit which was most clearly demonstrated in the game against Lakefield 
when we overcame a two goal- deficit at the beginning of the last ])erio(l. 
Macdonald House hockey colours were presented to the following : — 
Davis III. Garratt II, Heintzman, Kennedy. McKenzie II, O'Rrian 111, 
Rapmund and Wynne. Throughout the season, both Davis and Rapmund 
played a very enthusiastic game, they worked hard but lacked weight and 
consequently were not as efifective in front of the net as they should have 
been. Garratt is an outstanding skater and should go far in hockey if he 
learns not to be afraid of body checks and to pass the puck at the right 
moment. Heintzman played a fair game at defence. He is a little slow 
and must improve his stick handling. Kennedy, our other defence man, 
was one of the most valuable players on the team. Time and time again, he 
broke up attacks and was fast enough to make many spectacular recoveries. 
McKenzie can skate and stick handle very well but suffers from a tendency 
to quit trying after a couple of body checks. O'Brian III in goal played 
a good game but was lucky to have Kennedy at defence in front of him. 
Wynne is probably our best all round player. He not only led one of the 
forward lines very effectively but also was often called upon to play defence 
at a critical moment. Mention also should be made of Park and Medland. 
Park improved as the season progressed and, with more practice, should 
make a good hockey player. Medland, who was handicapped by a sprained 
ankle, lacks weight and speed but plays a good game. 

Two games were played against Crescent School. Our team was com- 
posed of the smaller boys from the First Squad and the better players from 
the Second Squad. Crescent School was hardly up to it^ usual standard 
and we managed to win both games. The outstanding plays of the second 
game were the fine passing movements which were made by the McKenzie- . 
Rapmund-Davis line. The Second Squad, also, played an Aurora Public 
School team which won fairly easily because our boys could not skate fast 

Altogether, w-e can look back on a most successful hockey season. Next 
year, we should be able to do even better as five out of our eight colours 
should be back on our line-up for another season. 

Credit for the success of the Team is due in no small measure to Mr. 
Ives who coached and encouraged the boys to put their best into the game.

Macdonald House Cricket 


Front Row — F. A. McKenzie, C. E. Medland. T. M. Adamson. G. L. Rapmund, 

C. A. Hirsch.

Back Row — Mr. Millward. Housemaster; Mr. Ives, coach. 


The House First Team has played five games during the season. Of 
these the team has won four and lost one. For the first two games we 
were very unfortunate in not having our captain, Adamson, on the team, 
but Rapmund acted as captain very capably in his place. Adamson is a 
very good bowler with an easy action, but did not really do himself justice 
until the last game of the season when he took seven wickets for twelve 
runs. His batting in the matches was a little disappointing due to the fact 
that he is inclined to be a little careless. He must learn to play himself in 
before trying to hit every ball. His average for the season was 43.1, which 
is extremely good. Rapmund has proved a very useful batsman and bowler. 
In the first two games his bowling was particularly good ; against Appleby, 
when time was very short, he actually took four wickets in five balls ! His 
bowling average for the season was 3.5. \\'ynne's batting has been steadily 
improving but he must try to swing his bat on his defensive shot and not 
merely poke at the ball. O'Brian III is still a rather slow scorer but he has 
some very good, safe oflF shots which look quite professional. Fletcher I 

Sl Andrew's College Review 107 

and Hirsh are two new boys who have proved a very vahiable addition to 
the team. Both of them have played cricket before and both look like 
cricketers when at the wicket. Garratt II. our only left-hander, is develop- 
ing into quite a batsman. His great effort at T.C.S. when he almost saved 
the side from defeat, deserves much praise. The fielding of the team has 
been fairly good with the exception of the away game at T.C.S. Medland, 
one of the younger members of the team, caught five catches during the 
season and Wynne caught four. Fletcher I was perhajw the best fielder 
on the team.

No words that 'ere are writ' 
Could tell the life herein. 
But yet, 'twould not be fit 
To leave a vacant mind 
Where it must needs be most ; 
And, therefore, read the wise ! 
And let your mind perceive 
A world, that, set apart. 
Is able to produce 
A man of mind, of heart.

Old Boys' Mail Bas 

Deryck Thomson expresses in a letter to the Headmaster what all of 
US feel about the Old School in retrospect. 

"It has been such a long time since I have visited the College that I 
thought I would take this opportunity to write to you. and learn of all the 
things which have been happening during the last year. 

"I seldom realized, while I attended St. Andrew's, how much it really 
meant to have that privilege. But it does not take long for that realization 
to strike you once you depart. I suppose many Old Boys write or tell you 
the same storv many times. I think it rather a pity that nuich of the appre- 
ciation comes to you later and not while at school. My three years there 
will always remain the happiest of my life. I am sure. Since I left. I have 
kept in contact with a good many of the friends I made at school and we 
all agree on this point. 

"Perhaps you would like to know some of the many things which we 
enjoyed most, though doubtless all this is old stuff also. Of course, the 
buildings and their surroundings are ideal. In fact, living in the country 
and being in the open so much, spoils you for city life completely. We all 

1 24 St. Andrew's College Review 

remember the coming of spring, when we could stroll down to the gates 
on bright cool evenings after supper. Standing at the gates and watching 
the cars going along Yonge Street, we sometimes thought it would be nice 
to be in the city, but when we looked across the fields, just starting to 
assume the luxuriant green of summer, and saw the sun going down behind 
the Upper School, we usually changed our minds ! 

"It wasn't any effort to arise in the mornings with the sun streaming 
through the windows (we don't seem to remember the rainy mornings) 
and the flower beds around the quad, a profusion of bloom. The view from 
both front and back of the buildings can't be matched by any other school 
I have yet seen. 

"There are other things too. which we will always remember. Although 
sometimes we might not have shown it, some of our happiest and most 
peaceful moments were spent in the Chapel. There is an atmosphere of 
fellowship and understanding, of complete accord with all your fellows 
which even the youngest and the oldest senses after an evening or a morn- 
ing spent in worship there. We thoroughly enjoyed all the interesting 
speakers who addressed us on Sunday evenings, and the lovely strains of the 
organ, played by "Pop" Ross. Although carol service practices were some- 
times attended with much grumbling, everybody certainly gave his all 
when that auspicious occasion finally arrived. We must have been a great 
worry to you beforehand, but your efforts w^ere always crowned with suc- 
cess afterwards. 

"Although I failed to shine in the classroom (I'm speaking strictly for 
myself now) I don't remember the bad moments, but only the good. A 
chemical experiment in Goody's lab. which wasn't in the books and pro- 
duced a rather drastic result. Dr. Robinson trying to instil the works of 
Virgil into our brains when, all the time, by looking out the window, you 
could see the fields and Kirk's pond in the distance ; wishing you were free 
to tear over there. Or Uncle Ernie Fleming, to whom I'll always remain 
indebted for the time and patience he spent in strengthening my flimsy 
mathematical grounding, telling us to THINK all the time. But of course 
the prime story in our repertoire of schoolboy experiences will always be 
that great pyrotechnical display, which we tried to incorporate into an 
annual event, but failed rather dismally. I think the greatest mass caning 
on record took place on that night, and those who participated and received 
their just deserts, carried the marks of misbehaviour with a great deal of 
pride in the showers for many days afterward, and were rather disappointed 
when they began to disappear. 

"There are hundreds of little incidents which we take great delight in 
recounting when we get together, and some day I hope they may be col- 

Sl Andrew'' s College Review 125 

lected in a book pertaining to boys and boarding school life. Someone 
once suggested that as a prime idea for Doctor Macdonald, Dr. Robinson, 
Mr. Fleming, Mr. Findlay, Mr. Goodman and some of the other old timers 
to follovv\ Such a book certainly would be very widely read." 

Yours sincerely, 

Dervck Thomson. 

S.A.C. Old Boy in British Navy Saves Two When 
Ship Hits Mine 

Heroism of the auxiliary fleet of the British navy is told in a letter 
received by George A. Kingston, of Toronto, from his son, Lieut. Harold 
Kingston (S.A.C. 1909-1910). The latter commands a ship in the auxiliary 
service somewhere otT the coast of England. Lieut. Kingston's skill as a 
swimmer played a notable part in the rescue of Capt. Morice, commander 
of a similar boat, and his gunner when their ship was blown to pieces upon 
striking a mine. 

"The first boat, commanded by Capt. Morice, was proceeding about 
400 yards ahead of our boat," writes Lieut. Kingston. "About 12 miles 
from shore the boat exploded. Only the debris was left floating on the 

Proceeding cautiously to the spot, Lieut. Kingston saw two men 
floundering. Later it was found that their legs had been broken in the 
explosion. Lieut. Kingston, w-ith another of his crew, jumped into the sea. 
They had ropes fastened to them, and. despite the heavy sea running, were 
able to bring the two men to safety. The other 11 men of the crew could 
not be found. The injured men are expected to recover. 

Lieut. Kingston saw service in the navy during the last war. He was 
living in London when the present war came and immediately offered his 
services to the admiralty. 

We have again heard from Bert Applegath (1912-21) : 

'T wish to thank the Ladies' Guild, the Old Boys and the present School 
for the parcel which I received while we were on duty at the Coast last 
week. It was a "just right" parcel — the boys got a kick out of the candy 
kisses ; the socks with the S.A.C. colours sure have something, and the 
flashlight was just what I needed as I had a lot of night runs with my 

126 Si. Andrew's College Review 

Denis Careless (1921-26) with the R.C.A.S.C. writes as follows: 
"May I offer my thanks to the Ladies' Guild, the School and the present 
boys for the very useful Christmas parcel. I saw Doug Lough the other 
day and he told me that he had received a similar parcel. As you know, 
there are a lot of Old Boys over in this little "do" and from news passed 
around they are all well a'nd living up to our School motto. \\'e have not 
as yet run into any real action but we do have a certain amount of bombs 
to duck and some machine gunning, but on the whole life is quite safe and 
pleasant. Our main regret is leaving our families and with the festive 
season so near, it brings home the separation all the more. 

Bob Armstrong (1922-27) R.C.H.A. : 

"Thank you very much for the Christmas box. I assure you all the 
articles were very welcome and I congratulate the Ladies' Guild on their 
suitability. I know you will convey my thanks to them, and I give you my 
power of attorney to return the kisses sent to me. \\'e didn't exactly have 
a gay and carefree Yuletide season ; but got through it anyway, and gave the 
men a damn good dinner with us waiting on the table and washing up, 
which I think tliey enjoyed almost as much as the dinner. Have not seen 
many Old Boys around; saw^ Doug Lough the other day — just the same 
as ever, and Jack Brown to-day, both in the 48th, of course. Saw Bob 
Drury* some months ago. Canada looks pretty good to us now. in fact Ld 
even come back and take study and put the boys to bed for you with a lot 
of pleasure. I see by the paper the Irish Regiment had a church parade 
at the School — good effort but Lll bet the Old Saint almost fell off his 
cairn. Have really no news to tell you— its all training worse luck ; we're 
fed up naturally and hoping we can get in it but apparently we have to 
wait — the great gods that be, know best. Give my best to all the old gang. 
By the way, tell Mr. Tudball I was billeted for three weeks with his cousin 
— Simpkins by name. Cheers for now and take care of yourself, the dear 
old place and all in it." 

*Editor's Note: As reported in the Christmas issue Bob Drury was killed shortly 
afterwards while acting as a dispatch rider during a blackout. 

D. S. Patterson (1915-21) : 

"Many thanks for the Christmas parcel. It was great to be remembered. 
Finding life and work with the 112th Squadron very interesting and enjoy- 
ing what opportunities I can find to see England. Best regards to all the 

Si. Andrew's College Review iiy 

Bruce B. King (1911-22), 48th Highlanders of Canada: 
"Many thanks for the socks, candy and f^ashUght. They arrived about 
New Year's. It was grand to think that the School should send them to 
me. Christmas away from home is never so good but I spent mine in 
Ireland at Dublin with a Canadian cousin who married an Irish girl during 
War 1. I had to wear civilian clothes. There were no blackouts and no 
bombs or food rationing. Quite a relief. I have been in London lately 
during the real bombing "Blitz" raids when high explosives and incendiaries 
were used. The damage and casualties were heavy in small areas but no 
])anic prevailed. The British civilians have real pluck. The Canadians are 
hoping for some action this spring. We have envied the Australians in 
Egypt. I have been separated from my I'attalion for five weeks while fol- 
lowing my present occupation. I am a school-teacher. I am a member 
of the directing staff or an instructor who teaches of^cers how to destroy 
their fellow-men on the enemy side with greater ease and facility, .^fter 
seeing the results of the bombing of civilians in London I have no com- 
punction about it either. Our students are Captains and Majors sent here 
to learn how to handle a company from the tactical point of view. The 
work is interesting and very instructive to myself. Do remember me to 
all old friends at S.A.C. I feel I have quite a few." 

W. S. Sharp (1930-34), 48th Highlanders of Canada: 
"Sitting over here in the long evenings I often think of the old School 
and of the good times I had there. I have the pleasure of working under 
Major King, another Andrean. and of course there are also many more 
over here all doing their share. I am sure they join with me in wishing 
you all the best of luck for the future." 

j. E. Ganong (Jan. — Mar.): 

"Thanks for kindness and thoughtfulness in sending parcel. Seeing 
a bit of England and getting to know the people. They have been most 
hospitable to the troops. Air raids only excitement, so far little damage." 

C. Gossage (Dec. 18th— Mar. 15) : 

"Many thanks for lovely parcel. Flashlight immediately put into use 
for looking at throats, and the kisses enjoyed by myself and the nurses. 
Thanks for cigs. Spring is here and crocuses out. None of us ex]K'Ct an 
invasion and being garrison troops is uninteresting." 

W. T. Moores : 

"Pleased to receive parcel from Old School. Received excellent Christ- 
mas issue of Review. Interesting to see different branches of services 
Old Boys have joined." 

128 St. Andrew's College Review 

Doug Lough (Jan. 4 — Mar 17) : 

"Parcel greatly appreciated, everything was just great. Have run into 
a number of S.A.C. boys including Bruce King, E. Ganong, Jack Brown, 
Dennis Careless and Bob Armstrong. Saw so many enemy planes shot 
down that one would think there were none left. Played 5 hockey games 
for former squadron. Christmas Review interesting." 

AX'hiteford G. Bell (1900-09). Royal Hamilton Light Infantry: 
"I cannot begin to thank you enough, and the Ladies' Guild for your 
great kindness. It was grand hearing from my old school again. I can 
assure you that the presents you sent were most awfully useful. Funnily 
enough there are quite a few Old Boys of the four schools in the Regiment 
— mostly Captains and ^Majors. Old Jerry hasn't improved much in the 
last twenty-four years. He is still up to his miserable ideas of fighting. 
One will never forget what the civilians have had to go through. However, 
they have been wonderful — always a cheer}- word and a bright smile. It 
is grand to have been born a Britisher." 

J. Lester Boyes : 

"Thanks for cigs. Enjoyed Review, noting boys in Services. War of 
nerves continues with irregular air raids. Canada can be proud of 
efficiently trained army under able leadership of General McNaughton. 
Have found Artillery work interesting, especially surveying end of it." 

John Brown : 

"Thanks for grand parcel at Christmas. Coastal duty for 3 weeks. 
Boys all fine and regiment in grand shape with plenty of work to keep us 
toughened for this game. Would like extra copy of Christmas Review." 

Jas. H. Johnson : 

"Thank everyone for 2 parcels from Ladies' Guild. Pocket flashlight 
indeed a necessity in blackout. Socks fit perfectly. Expect to get experi- 
ence on the sea." 

Capt. C. D. Kingsmill : 

"Thanks for cigarettes, flashlight, which is my constant companion 

Lt. U. C. Dick: 

"Thanks for smokes and good wishes from Ladies' Guild, Old Boys and 
present School. \\'hitey Bell with me in Royal Hamilton Light Infantry. 
Working hard, feeling fine. Review most interesting." 

John Dinnick (1924-26) : 

"Thanks for cigarettes. Work here in Light Anti Air Craft has so far 
proven most interesting."

Old Boys* News 

The School takes pride in the new and well merited recognition which 
had come to Canada's High Commissioner to England. In the King's 
Birthday honours Mr. Massey was appointed to His Majesty's Privy 
Council. We salute The Right Honourable Vincent Massey, P.O. 

Hugh H. Donald, K.C. (S.A.C. 1902-07). has been appointed by the 
Ontario Government to the post of Inspector of Legal Offices, a most 
coveted position, and one which he is eminently fitted to fill. The Inspector 
has jurisdiction over all Public Legal Offices in the Province, including the 
Offices of Sheriffs. County and Division Court Clerks, Magistrates, 
Coroners and the Registrars of Deeds. There are several hundred such 
offices in Ontario. 

Among the successful Andreans in the U. of T. First Year Examinations 
are Bill Lofft, First Class Honours in Commerce and Finance ; J. M. 
Bryan and Don. G. McClelland, Second Class Honours in the same course ; 
Milton T. Wilson, Second Class Honours in English Language and Litera- 
ture ; Max. B. E. Clarkson and J. W. Calhoun, both with Second Class 
Honours in Social and Philosophical Studies. 

On behalf of the Old Boys and of the present School, the Review 
expresses deepest regret at the serious illness of Dr. Almon \. Fletcher 
(1902-07). Dr. Fletcher is one of our most distinguished representatives 
in the Medical Profession and he is Consulting Physician to Ihe School. 

On February 1st. 1941, A. Gay Kirkpatrick (1920-23) took over the 
Managership of the North American Life Assurance Company for Nova 
Scotia, with Headquarters in Halifax. 

Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Don Carlos (1926-30) visited the School on 
March the 9th, 1941. Don Carlos is with the Ontario Hydro Electric 
Commission, Cameron Falls, Ontario. 

R. Ewart Stavert (1906-07), Vice-President of the Consolidated Min- 
ing & Smelting Co.. and Chairman of the Montreal Branch of the Canadian 
Institute of Mining & Metallurgy, was in charge of the entertainment of 
the annual general convention of the Institute held in Montreal in March. 

C. C. Macdonald (1925-30) has been appointed Secretary of the 
Aurora Board of Trade, and Treasurer of the Aurora Conservative 


6"/. Andrew's College Review 

Dr. Ewan Stuart Macdonald (1928-33) has been appointed Senior 
Obstetrical Interne at St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto. 

B. Langton S. Carr (1932-36) is attending the Agricultural College, 
Guelph, Ont. 

At the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association 
F. Grenville Rolph (1903-13) was elected Chairman of the Toronto 
Branch of the Association. 

Charles E. Lewis (1916-22) continues to show that flare for leadership 
which made him the manager of many of the student activities at St. 
Andrew's. He is now Vice-President of Lewis Limited in Truro, Nova 
Scotia, and has just introduced to the textile industries a new and improved 
type of yarn. Spinning new and better yarns was another thing that 
Charlie excelled at when he was at the School. 

John Mitchell (1933-35) has recently been appointed Advertising 
Manager of the Circle Bar Knitting Co., Limited, at Kincardine. This 
should be of particular interest to those Old Boys who are married. 

The Old Boys' Golf Tournament which was to have been held at The 
Summit Club on Wednesday, June 18th, was lost in Toronto's "Blackout", 
and is still missing, despite the valiant efforts of Grant Gordon. Joe Taylor, 
Gibbs Blackstock and the rest of the Golf Committee. The "All Clear" 
will be sounded next September, however, and it is hoped that the 
exegencies of Home Defence will allow our many A.R.P. workers to take 
18-hole shifts at the Golf Links and blast a few craters in the sand traps. 

The Old Boys' Cricket Match on May 24th brought out an all-star 
team of Old Boys, who, with a few days' practice might have played 
the M.C.C. at its best. The school batted first, scoring 110. Cobban, 
who was stumped by Vic Diver for 50, and Thiel with 11, were the only 
fouble figures. 

Milton Wilson and Don McLelland opened well for the Old Boys, 
giving us 33 for the first wicket. W hile there were no high scores in the 
total of 77 there was not a single "goose egg." The scores (exclusive of 
extras) were as follows: M. L \\ ilson 6, Don McLelland 15, Max Clark- 
son 2, Gord. Christie 3, Vic. Diver 7, Dave Dickie 4, Burley Edwards 8, 
Dustv Broome 2, Martin Kent 8, Paul Mosely 1, Bruce Butler 4 (not out). 

Paul Mosely, who is a Flying Officer at The Eglinton Training School, 
was paying his first visit to the old School since he left in 1917, and this 
was his first game of cricket since that time. 

Luncheon and tea were served at the School, but as the 24th was on 
a Saturday the gathering was a small one. Week-end leave is still a 
strong temptation, even for Old Boys. 
• Our thanks are due to Gord. Christie for rounding up the veterans. 

St. Andrew's College Review 131 

The Old Boys' Association has suffered the loss of three most loyal 
and valued members through the passing of Andrew Ralph Armstrong 
(1931-37), James WhiteBicknell (1902-12), both of Toronto, and Harris 
McFaydcn (1900) of Winnipeg. The Review extends sincere sympathy 
to their families. 

Andrew, George and Bob Armstrong all attended the School and have 
taken a most active interest as Old Boys ever since. Andrew was a member 
of the First Cricket Team for three years and has played in several of the 
Old Boys' Games. He was also a Life Member of the Old Boys' Asso- 
ciation. He died on May the 18th, 1941, after many weeks of illness. 

"Jimmie" Bicknell will be affectionately remembered by a great host 
of Old Boys and his genial personality will be missed whenever Old 
Andreans foregather. He took a very active part in all departments of 
School life during his years at St. Andrew's ; starring on the Rugby and 
Hockey Teams and being a Prefect and Captain of the Cadet Corps in his 
last two years. He later became a Life Member of the Old Boys' Asso- 
ciation. After leaving the School, Bicknell studied Law, and up to the time 
of his last illness was practising in Toronto. He passed away on January 
27th, 1941. 

Harris McFayden entered St. Andrew's College from Caledon, Ontario, 
in September. 1900, going from St. Andrew's to the Ontario Agricultural 
College at Guelph where he graduated in 1905. In that year he migrated 
to Western Canada and became Seed Commissioner for Saskatchewan. He 
later established the McFayden Seed Company in Winnipeg, a Company 
known from Coast to Coast for its outstanding contribution to the improve- 
ment of Canada's Seed Grains. 

Mr. McFayden had been a member of the Council of the St. Andrew's 
College Old Boys' Association for the past two years. He died on May 
the 6th, 1941. 

The Review has learned with regret of the death on August the 29th. 
1940, of Captain Robert Chester Mitchell (1909-11). Captain Mitchell 
attended the University of Saskatchewan on leaving St. Andrew's and at 
the time of his death was Liason Officer for the Department of National 

Henry Whitney Wise (1922-26) died at St. Catharines, Ontario, on 
December the 29th, 1940. The Review extends to his sister, Mrs. C. A. 
Edwards of Toronto, sincere sympathy. 

The Review and the Old Boys' Association extend to Leslie Evans 
(1919-25) sincere sympathy in the loss of his brother, Gordon, who died 
from a heart attack while skiing at the Summit last winter. 


Sl Andrew's College Review 

The School extends sincere sympathy to Lieutenants A. W. and E. 
G. Dunbar in the death of their father, Mr. Arthur Dunbar. 

The Review expresses sincere sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Donald C. 
Wilson on the untimely death of their infant son, Ian McCoUum, on June 
23rd, 1941. 

Michael Jacques de Sherbinin (S.A.C. 1911-12), one of the three de 
Sherbinin brothers whom many of us remember, passed away suddenly at 
his home in Mount Vernon, N.Y., on January 15th, 1941. The sympathy 
of his friends is extended by the Review to Mrs. de Sherbinin and her 

Arthur R. Brown (1901-1902) died suddenly at his residence, 83 Adas 
Avenue. Toronto, on June 8th, 1941. Old Boys of the Chestnut Park 
days will be particularly sorry to learn of the passing of an old classmate. 

Thomas Alexander Russell, a truly great Canadian, and member of the 

Board of Governors of St. Andrew's 
College, died on December the 29th. 
1940. at his home in Toronto after a 
short illness. 

After making a brilliant record at 
the University of Toronto, and after 
an even more brilliant and successful 
career in business and public life. 
T. A. Russell became \'ice-President 
of Toronto University and received in 
1930 the degree of Doctor of Laws. 

In paying tribute to his memory. 
President H. J. Cody said of Dr. 
Russell "He was a loyal friend and a 
noble man. He never spared himself ; 
he never refused to carry one more 
burden. He never would say to him- 
self 'What is there in it for me?' but 
rather 'What is there in me for it?' " 

The truth of this tribute can be 
attested to by all who were associated 
with Dr. Russell on the Board of St. 
Andrew's College. The School will 
ever be grateful for the service which 
he rendered as a Governor and friend.

One of the most striking things about the gathering was the large 
proportion of representatives from the latest and earliest classes of the 

Among the "Old Chestnuts" (the reference is to the location of the 
first school building, without any reflection upon its products) were Gilbert

Russell Grant, N. O. Wheeler, and our new President Gibbs Blackstock. 
Indeed we suspect Gibbs of having exerted "undue influence" in enticing 
his old classmates to foresake the calm seclusion of the Armchair Club for 
the jovial atmosphere of a School Reunion. 

The younger generation was also well represented by H. K. Hamilton, 

136 St. Andrew's College Review 

Jr., Ruliff Grass. Piper Gord Christie, Martie Kent, Vaughan Williams, 
and a dozen others. 

The time honoured rites were renewed and seemed to lose none of their 
zest by the repetition. The genial foregathering and Reception in the 
Headmaster's House. The Parade to the Dining Hall. The Piping and 
Address to the Haggis. A most notable repast, provided by the School, 
and fittingly accompanied. And then — the Toasts and Speeches — not too 
many and not too long, and right to the point. 

Ed. Whitaker was Master of Ceremonies, and his apt introductions 
gave each speaker a flying start and a fast track. 

In his Toast to the School. Bob Grass, Vice-Chairman of the Board of 
Governors, recalled the magnificent record of the School in the last war 
and assured us that the spirit which inspired that record was still as strong 
as ever in the face of the present emergency. 

Responding to this Toast, the Headmaster summed up the School year 
as one of continued achievement. The enrolment is the highest in ten 
years, and an earnestness of purpose pervades every aspect of the School 
life. A gratifying proportion of those in attendance are sons of Old Boys, 
but the future success of the School will depend to a large extent upon the 
ever increasing support of the Old Boys in this regard. 

Dr. Macdonald proposed the Toast to Old Boys on Active Service, 
citing the numbers now in the Forces and recalling many instances of 
individual valour both in this war and the last. 

As Chairman of the Board. Dr. Macdonald urged upon us the critical 
need of the School for our continued and increasing assistance in pro- 
moting public good-will and an appreciation of the important role which 
Boarding Schools are playing in the development of a loyal British Canada. 

Norman MacLeod, Parliamentary Correspondent in the House of 
Commons, introduced our Guest Speaker. In a humorous and engaging 
manner he sketched the vicissitudes of his journalistic career. He pictured 
The Director of Public Information as being between the upper and the 
nether millstone, accused of extravagance and political propaganda when 
he adopts a vigorous and active policy, and if he proceeds more modestly 
he is immediately met with charges of holding a sinecure and of failing to 
earn his salary. As liaison officer between the Government on one side and 
the Press and Public on the other the Director of Public Information cer- 
tainly holds no sinecure. 

Herbert Lash outlined, in his speech, the ramifications of his Depart- 
ment into all branches of Public Relations both national and international, 
Elementary and Adult Education. Motion Pictures, Radio, Travel, Press 
Releases, Advertising and Publicity of all kinds. 

Sl Andrew's College Review 


The budget of the Department of PubHc Information runs into many 
thousands of dollars annually and while it undoubtedly pays rich dividends 
in national solidarity, public enlightenment and a more intelligent democ- 
racy, these are intangible things which do not ap])ear on the credit side of 
the Public Accounts when the Budget is balanced. 

The obvious injustice of the charges levelled from time to time by press 
and politician against the Director of Public Information made us all realize 
the dangers of ill-founded and uninformed criticism in Public Affairs. 

As the culmination of the evening Gibbs Blackstock was duly installed 
as President and Chairman to succeed Ed. Whitaker, and in a short but 
stirring speech he served notice that next year's Dinner would set a new 
record for interest and attendance and warned us that anyone who missed 
it would indeed be disappointed. 

To the Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum we again give thanks for their 
gracious hospitality, to Miss Robertson and her staff for a delightful 
dinner, to Miss Brookes for the unseen part which she always plays in 
addressing and mailing the hundreds of notices which rally us each year to 
these reunions, and to Wally "Mac" of The Ez'Oiiitg Telegram for the 
merry sketch of our Guest Speaker.

Canada is rapidly playing a larger and more important pa- 1 in the war 
with Germany and Italy. She should pull her full weight not only now but 
in the years to come. 

How is this Dominion to render this service to the British Empire and 
to the civilized world when only three per cent of her young people, qualified 
by secondai-y school attendance, enroll for a college or university course? 

How are leaders to be provided unless we train them ? Where shall they 
be trained if not in college? 

A college or university course is the most valuable asset anyone may 
possess. It increases by about ten times one's opportunities for happiness and 
success in life. 

Have you investigated the opportunities offered at the University of 
Western Ontario? 

Here is your chance. Write to
