This magazine and other matter from the Old Boys' office is sent to the
home addresses of those on Active Service because other addresses are liable
to frequent change.
This is the first number of the Old
Boys' edition of the College Times
which it is hoped may become an
established institution of the Associ-
ation. It comes to all Members of the
Association instead of the regular
College Times, which many Old
Boys have felt is too exclusively con-
cerned with the small events of the
present life of the College.
This first number is being sent to
all Old Boys who are not members of
the Association in the hope that they
may join, so as to receive it in future.
It is also sent to all Old Boys who
are overseas on Active Service as they
automatically become members in the
Association for the duration of the
war when they proceed overseas.
I would like to pay tribute to our
Editor, Mr. J. H. Biggar, who has
worked so hard in connection with
this issue, and express to him our
sincere thanks for his efforts.
The success of the Old Boys' edition
of the College Times will wholly
depend on the support Old Boys give
it by sending in news, articles, and

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS
(The address of J. A. Grant, Presi-
dent of the Association for 1939-40,
delivered at the Annual Meeting,
November 15th, 1940, is not printed
in full because most of it deals with
matters more fully recorded elsewhere
in this magazine.)
"It is with deep regret that our
Association has to record the passing
of some of our well-known members.
Mr. W. H. Auden was well known as
Headmaster of the College during the
years 1903-1917. After his retirement
he was a Patron of the Upper Canada
College Old Boys' Association. Mr.
Arnold Morphy will be remembered
well by the boys who attended the
College during the years 1895-1919,
as Mr. Morphy gave these years to
the College as Bursar. Mr. Morphy
attended the College from 1877-1883
as a student, and after his graduation
became an enthusiastic Old Boy,
giving much of his time and effort
to the Association. Mr. John C.
Wedd, 1869-1874, was a son of the
late William Wedd, after whom
Wedd's House is named. He was
always a staunch supporter of the
College and was Treasurer of the
Old Boys' Association for approxi-
mately fifteen years.
"The result of the Triennial Elec-
tion of the Old Boys' representatives
to the Board of Governors was the
re-election of Harold A. Roberts,
A. Kelso Roberts and G. N. Hargraft.
The first two are members of the
executive committee, and all three
members have given a great deal of
time and thought to the affairs of the
College. As the representatives of the
Association they have kept your
Directors well informed.
"The war has now started in its
second year. As in the past, Old Boys
have sacrificed their time and posi-
tions to render service to their King
and Country. The number serving in
the Navy, Army and Air Force is
approximately 300, with more Old
Boys volunteering as their services
are needed. Names of Old Boys have
already appeared in the casualty lists
and we offer our sincere symapthy to
the bereaved parents and relatives.
"The usual annual activities of the
Association were repeated this year.
"The Annual Party for the present
boys was held in the Prayer Hall, and
was very much enjoyed by the parents
as well as the boys. The Smoker held
in the Old Gym was a great success,
the entertainment and refreshments
supplied by the committee, Dr. J.
Ross, Dr. Fred Harrison, and Geoff
Clarkson, were enjoyed so much that
the Old Boys present asked that this
event be repeated next year.
"The Membership Secretary has
had another very successful year,
with the Life Members showing
another healthy increase. I wish to
thank Dave Wright, our Membership
Secretary, for the hard work and time
spent on this department. We shall
all be very sorry to see Mr. Wright
leave, but his work takes him away
from the city and we wish him suc-
"The questionnaire sent out with
the last Annual Report has proven a
great success, much valuable informa-
tion has been supplied which will
prove very useful. I would suggest
this questionnaire be sent out every
few years, so that our records be kept
up to date.
"I wish to thank our hard working
Secretary, Harold Roberts, for the
excellent work and the many long
hours he has spent working to better
the Association. He has had another
successful year in his placement of
Old Boys in positions. I know this
takes much of his time, which he
gives very willingly.
"A new phase in the activities of
the Association was set up during the
year, after a very successful trip
made last year by Mr. Alan Stephen,
Headmaster of the Preparatory School ,
through the West. The amount of
information and ideas made available
by Mr. Stephen made it advisable to
divide the activities of the Association
into regional zones, the purpose being
to keep Old Boys in close touch with
the Association, create new members,
and make Old Boys conscious of the
advisability of sending their sons to
"I wish to thank Mr. Morine and
Mr. Gale, who spent much time on
working out the details of the new-
zone plan; also Mr. Stephen and all
the Masters who are giving of their
time so freely. I wish to thank the
members of the executive who are
retiring this year for their enthusiastic
work during the past year. I also
wish to take this opportunity of
thanking the Principal and the Board
of Governors for their co-operation
with the Association this year."

tives of the years '40 and '39, Rod
Laidlaw and John Henderson respec-
tively, an example which other years
might do well to follow.
OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION MEETING IN VICTORIA
At a meeting of the Old Boys in
Victoria Mr. H. B. King, Chief In-
spector of Schools for British Colum-
bia, was invited to meet the Head-
master of the Preparatory School who
was visiting Victoria and the Old
Boys who were able to attend the
meeting. Mr. King, to quote from a
report in the Colonist, "suggested that
it would be an excellent thing if there
could be a freer exchange of students
between one part of Canada and
another, whereby the young people of
the Dominion could be brought to
understand one another better. He
pointed out that Upper Canada Col-
lege, which throughout its history had
been closely associated with the public
system, though administered private-
ly, was an ideal institution for such
a fusion of all sections in the
Mr. Stephen spoke of the part
which was being played by the Col-
lege and the Old Boys in the war and
described some of the problems arising
out of the evacuation of children from
Great Britain to Canada.

OLD BOYS' TIES
After a considerable amount of
discussion the committee have finally
decided on an official Upper Canada
College Old Boys' necktie.
The tie has a black background
with a diagonal blue stripe on either
side of which is a narrow white stripe.
Owing to the increased cost of the
silk, it is now necessary to charge
$1.25 for this tie which may be ob-
tained at the Old Boys' office at the

A MEMORY OF THE OLD SCHOOL
The Struggle to Make Us Gentlemen
By Stephen Leacock, ('82-'87)
It seems there is a good deal of
alarm just now in England over the
idea that "gentlemen" may be dying
out. In an old civilization things come
and go. Knighthood came and went:
it was in the flower, then in the pod
and then it all went to seed. Now it
seems to be gentlemen that are going.
It appears that the upper classes are
being so depressed and the lower
classes so pushed up, and both shifting
sideways so fast, that you simply
can't distinguish an upper birth from
a lower. In fact it is hard to make up
their births at all.
I wasn't meaning to write on that
topic. The thing is too big. Everyone
admits that if gentlemen go, then
Heaven only knows what will happen
to England. But then Heaven only
ever did. But the point here is that
the question has got mixed up with
the fate of the public schools, I mean
of course in the English sense, the
ones the public can't get into. The
best solution — it is generally admitted
— in fact a solution "definitely in
sight," is in the idea that if you throw
the big board schools into the public
schools and then throw the small
private schools into both of them,
then you so mix up your gentlemen
with your others that they all turn
into gentlemen. Of course you can't
face this all at once; a whole nation
of gentlemen is a goal rather than —
well, I mean to say, it takes time.
Meantime if it is "definitely in sight,"
that's the place where the genius of
England likes to leave it. It can roost
there and go fast asleep along with
Dominion Status for India and the
Disestablishment of the Church.
But, bless me! that was only the
introduction of what I meant to
write about. This talk of "gentlemen"
in England turned me back to our
old Upper Canada College on King
Street sixty years ago, and the desper-
ate struggle there to make us gentle-
men. We didn't understand for a
while just what they were trying to
do to us. But gradually we began to
catch on to it, and feel that it was no
good. There was a kindly and ora-
torical principal, whom I will not
name but whom the affection of Old
Boys will easily recall — a kindly prin-
cipal, I say, with a beautiful and
sonorous voice that used to echo
through the Prayer Hall in exaltation
of the topic. "This school, I insist,"
he would declaim, "must be a school
of gentlemen." We used to sit as
juniors and think, "Ghee! This is
going to be a tight shave! I'll never
make it," but presently we learned
to take it more easily. We noticed
that the gentleman question broke
out after a theft of school books, or
the disappearance of small change
foolishly left in reach. Not being yet
gentlemen, we made a distinction
between "stealing" a thing and "hook-
ing" it. A gentleman, you see, classes
both together. He'd just as soon steal
a thing as hook it.
But, bit by bit, and gradually we
were led towards the ideal. We were
often told, by oratorical visitors, that
Upper Canada College was founded
as a "school for gentlemen." When I
entered the School there were still a
few old, very old, boys around, who
belonged to the early generations of
the foundation. We felt that the
School had been fooled in some of
them. They seemed just like us.
Personally, however, I got by on a
side issue. In those days there was
none of the elaborate registration, the
card index stuff, that all schools have
now. Any information that they
wanted about us they got viva voce on
the spot by calling us up in front of
the class and asking for it. So there
came a day soon after I entered when
old Mr. Martland (Gentle) called
me to be questioned and a junior
master wrote down the answers.
"What," he asked, "is your father's
occupation?" I hesitated quite a
while and then I said, "He doesn't do
anything." Mr. Martland bent over
towards the junior who was writing
and said in an impressive voice: "A
gentleman." A sort of awe spread
round the room at my high status.
But really why I had hesitated was
because I didn't exactly know what
to say. You see, I knew that at that
moment my father was probably
along on King Street having a Tom-
and-Jerry in the Dog and Duck, or at
Clancey's — but whether to call that
his occupation was a nice question.
Slowly we learned the qualifications
of a gentleman and saw that the thing
was hopeless. A gentleman it seemed
would take a bath (once a week on
bath night) and never try to dodge it.
A gentleman would not try to imitate
Bishop Dumoulin or chew gum in St.
George's. A gentleman, it seemed,
couldn't tell a lie — not wouldn't, just
couldn't. Limitations like these cut
such a swath through our numbers
that in time we simply gave up. There
was no use in it. Mind, don't mis-
understand me. Of course we could
behave like gentlemen, — oh, certainly,
— act like gentlemen. At first sight
you'd mistake us for it. But we knew
all the time that we weren't.
I suppose you have the same prob-
lem still in what we call the new
school, and even in the newest parts
of it. But, remember — where we
failed, you may succeed. That School
was founded to make gentlemen.
Stick at it. You'll get there!
THE COLLEGE CHRONICLE
Since the last number of the
College Times the first activity at
U.C.C. was the writing of examina-
tions. But this year the fury was less
intense as Pass Matriculation examin-
ations were this year abolished by
the Ontario Department of Educa-
tion. For some years schools have had
the right to exempt candidates from
examination in any subject in which
they would certify that the candidate
was capable of getting at least 66 per
cent. From now on the schools' own
examinations or other means of
measurement alone decide whether a
candidate passes at all. Having dele-
gated this authority to all schools, the
Department must inspect even the
private schools. So in the summer
term the boys had the pleasure of
having strange gentlemen sitting with
them to judge how the masters were
getting along. U.C.C. itself was
"trying its Matric." It passed — by
what score is not revealed.
A number still had to write Honour
Matric papers, but since the best
students are exempted through having
been certified as capable of getting 66
per cent, final results do not indicate
much. An exceptionally high number
were, however, qualified to enter
university. S. V. Soanes won the
First Edward Blake Scholarship in
Mathematics and Physics, which
means that he came first in the prov-
ince in that pair of subjects. He also
won a Reuben Wells Leonard Scholar-
ship at University College. V. H. K.
Lang won the James Harris in Latin
and French. T. E. Hull won the
Wellington in Mathematics at Trinity
College and was awarded the U. C.C.-
Trinity Scholarship in addition; he
also qualified for a special scholarship
The College opened in September
with about 90 boys from Great
Britain added to its numbers, making
the total 662 this year, compared with
624 last year. The Upper School with
396 has 18 less this year, the Prep
with 266 has 56 more. To deal with
the increase in boarders at the Prep
the carpenters had to be put to work
re-arranging accommodation. The
boys from Britain are mostly at the
Prep. By all accounts, they mix very
well with the Canadians, and are more
advanced in languages and less in
Mathematics and Science. Most
played soccer, but a few took up
Canadian rugby. No doubt their
cricket will make up for their lack of
hockey. They say they feel at home.
At the end of last year Miss Lillian
MacCorquodale, now Mrs. Arthur
Stibbard, retired as Lady Superin-
tendent. Her place has been taken by
Miss Elinore Lindabury, who gradu-
ated from McGill in Household
Science and was recently dietitian
at Hart House. Mr. Robinson having
married, his place as Junior House-
master of Wedd's is taken by Mr.
Norman Beattie, an old Boy of
'26-'29. He held an Entrance Scholar-
ship here. He headed his year at the
University of British Columbia when
he graduated in 1939 and came on a
Fellowship to do post-graduate work
in History at Toronto.
At the Prep, when Mr. N. S. C.
Dickinson entered the Navy, Mr.
Carson took his place as Senior House-
master and has since married. Mr.
Gait also having married, Mr. Wilson
B. Stall worthy and Mr. Eric Wiseman
have joined the staff as Housemasters.
The former is a graduate of Toronto
in Honour Biology and has done post-
graduate work in Germany and for
four years at Toronto. The latter
was educated at Dulwich College and
Corpus Christi, Cambridge, where he
attained Honours in History. He was
Games Master at Selwyn House
School in Montreal from 1935 to 1940.
Mr. David B. Owen, a recent gradu-
ate of Trinity College, Toronto, is a
part-time Master. In the middle of
this autumn term Mr. Olaf Sorenson
joined the Norwegian Forces in To-
ronto. The Prep also had to increase
staff to deal with its greater numbers.
The First Rugby Team was again
coached by Mr. W. D. Gilmore,
known as ''Red," a former U.C.C.
Master now on the staff of Oakwood
Collegiate. It was a good season,
free of injuries, serious defeats or
other calamities. The team was well-
balanced, good wings and line-men,
two good plungers, a lively quarter-
back and a good long kicker. They
beat St. Michael's and Oakwood Col-
legiate in exhibition games. In the
Little Big Four they beat T.C.S. 22-1
and St. Andrew's 11-5. The climax
was the Ridley game at the College,
one of the best games seen in a long
time. At the start Ridley seemed dis-
concerted by the College's strength,
and lost two points by their own
fumbling. A brilliant drop-kick put
them in the lead, 3-2, before half-time.
Then the College, playing steadily,
scored a touchdown which they con-
verted to lead 8-3, but in the closing
minutes Ridley scored 7 points and
won 10-8. No alibis were offered.
The 145-lb. team, which is a "farm"
for the First Team, suffered some-
what by injuries, but it broke even
with a junior team of U.T.S. and
with Lakefield. It had abounding and
The Senior House League was won
by Seaton's after a close struggle with
Wedd's; Wedd's won the Junior.
The Prep had three sporty teams
to play outside games. The First
Team defeated T.C.S. easily, lost
twice to St. Andrew's, and broke even
in two games with Ridley.
Soccer steadily grows in popularity
in both Upper School and Prep. In
the former there are now eight teams
which play in an intramural league.
This year a College team, coached by
Mr. Mazzoleni, and strengthened by
English "imports," played eight games
including two with T.C.S., a draw and
a narrow defeat.
More and more boys in the autumn
term take up Track instead of rugby
or soccer. So, in addition to the an-
nual cross country race at York
Downs Golf Club, four inter-school
cross country races were held in
competition with city schools. A
record number, 215, ran in our cross
country. John R. Crerar was the
winning senior, Michael W. Bremner
the intermediate, and Byron Turner
The hockey season now begins in
the middle of November for the First
Team practising at the Maple Leaf
Gardens. Coached by Mr. Joe Prim-
eau, formerly of the Maple Leafs,
they are very promising. In their
class of the S.P.A. knock-out series
they defeated Markham, St. Cathar-
ines, and Waterloo and lost only in
the final to Brantford.
Clubs for all sorts of hobbies, dis-
cussions and interests continue to rise,
flourish and die. The Radio Club has
developed into the Electrical Club.
A new debating society has been
started. A College choir now sits in
special benches in the Prayer Hall and
performed on Prize Day and at
Christmas Carol Service, while music
generally receives ever greater atten-
tion in both Upper School and Prep.
In the middle of last year the boys
established a weekly newspaper, writ-
ten, run and financed wholly by
themselves; this year it continues as
a fortnightly. It has by no means
detracted from the bulk or quality of
the regular College Times. It is a
good example of College spirit.
The chief event of this autumn
term was the Governor-General's
visit to present the prizes. It being
on his first day in Toronto, the Col-
lege was much honoured. Although
the ceremony had to be at 11 o'clock
on Friday morning, November 15th,
the attendance was so large that it
was held, not in the traditional Prayer
Hall, but in the new gymnasium
where the stage was set up as a plat-
form. There was room for all the boys
of the College besides the guests. His
Excellency was received by a guard
of honour, as usual, and was then
preceded to the platform by a pro-
cession of the Governors and the
Masters. The Principal in his address
drew attention to four new prizes
being donated for the first time; one
by Mrs. A. J. Mackenzie in memory
of Dr. A. J. Mackenzie, College Physi-
cian 1902-38; one by Mrs. Eric L.
Harvie of Calgary for special achieve-
ment, given this year to the new boy
considered to have done most credit-
ably ; one by Mr. R. K. Mann (U.C.C.
'22-'33) in memory of Sir William
Osier; and one by M. Emile Vaillan-
court of Montreal to encourage pro-
gress in French. The Rev. Dr. Cody
presented the J. Herbert Mason
Medals. Prize Day more than ever
expressed the traditions and dignity
of the College as a Canadian institu-
When Varsity opened on September
25, a few months ago, there were
dozens of rumours floating round —
lectures were going to be curtailed;
the University was to be an armed
camp; fraternities were going to be
forced to fold up. Rumour soon gave
way to reality, however, and on
the surface things were much as they
had been during the first year of this
war. Fees had to be paid, year
meetings attended and fraternity
rushing started. The first orgy of
lecture-skipping over, students settled
down to work. Underneath the stream
of everyday university life has run a
strong current of seriousness, how-
ever, which has drawn the functions
of the university much more in touch
with the war effort.
A certain restlessness in the minds
of many students was put at rest by
the opening address of President Cody
who defined our position in relation
to the current war. A new emphasis,
he urged, was to be placed on uni-
versity work. The spotlight would be
shifted over to bring into prominence
new modes of thought and new
activities. In the place of traditional
cake-fights and bed-races, there would
be the C.O.T.C. Actually university
life does not seem to have changed
much, though. The same courses of
lectures are being given, the same
dances are held and you have lunch
in the same places.
I wish I could give a detailed ac-
count of the activities of every Upper
Canada Old Boy down here at
Varsity. But they are legion. In three
minutes I listed some 67 Old Boys
ranging alphabetically from Hank
Aboud (completing his third year in
the Pass Course) to S. P. Wright
(gallantly starting first year again,
this time in Chemical Engineering).
There must be at least half as many
again, bringing the grand total to
one hundred at least. Space does not
allow us to write about every one of
these Old Boys. In all fairness we
cannot very well highlight the activi-
ties of one and ignore those of another.
Who is to say which is the superior
social virtue — swimming or cooky-
pushing? The various adherents of
(a) swimming, and (b) cooky-pushing
might well take offence if we were to
feature the Old Boys who were
prominent in either.
On the serious side again we might
say that there is one organization at
Varsity which seems to embrace all
the Old Boys that are down here —
namely, the C.O.T.C. Familiar faces
loom up at every turn. Everybody
seems to be in the Battalion. Many
are officers, like Bones Waldie and
Jack Simpson, and even more are
sergeant-majors or sergeants, like
Jock Fleming, Bill Gooderham and
It would be unnecessary to empha-
size the value of the training we all
received at the College. In the know-
ledge of foot-drill and rifle-drill, the
Rifle Battalion at the College has
given us an immeasurable head-start
over other recruits. Far more im-
portant was the training in word of
command, so important to an officer-
in-embryo. We might finish with the
comment that so high is the estimate
of the College Battalion held by the
company commanders down here that
the mere mention of it is enough to

In the capacity of students at the
Royal Military College and also as
Old Boys of the College we are
writing this letter to pass on the
activities of a few of us who have left
the College in the past two years.
In 1939 the R.M.C. course was cut
in half and those who left Upper
Canada two years ago have become
seniors. Frank Wootton, an old
Weddite, is second in seniority in the
Battalion. He's a C.S.M. and a very
good one. Dave McWilliams is a
sergeant, not very far down in the
seniority list. Those of us who came
down this year, of course, are still
This year Upper Canada had a
greater representation than any other
school in Canada. Five of us were
accepted: Bud Lawson, Norm Cor-
bett, Don Edwards, Cam MacDonald,
and Chuck Whitten. At the first of
the year Lawson and Corbett were
appointed recruit class seniors in their
respective companies for the duration
of the first term. When our class
officials were voted upon, Corbett was
elected President, and Lawson as
When the rugby season started,
Dave McWilliams was captain of
the team, but had bad luck with a
sprained ankle. Corbett earned a
regular position on the squad. Both
had played first team football while
at the College. The sole representa-
tive on the soccer team was Bud
Lawson, who played goal. He had
never played soccer before but was
used to the goal position from three
years on the first team hockey at
the College. Now that the hockey
season is started and the team has
played a few games, Lawson has
starred again in goal, but this time
under the Red and White of R.M.C.
Corbett and Edwards, who played on
the U.C.C. Juveniles, are holding
down positions on the team. So it
went on the sporting side.
Chuck Whitten was handicapped
at the College with an infected foot.
He has been in the hospital down here
for some time and spent his Thanks-
giving leave there.
We are home now on Christmas
leave, with our recruit year behind us.
After Christmas we return as third
class men. Until now we ran across
the historic square and "recruited" in
the traditional fashion for seniors, but
now we can march across the square
and admire the surroundings in
passing. Dave and Frank will have
no one to shine their brass now,
although we didn't mind that. The
third advantage of our new status is
that we can be on more sociable
terms with the other Old Boys at
Next year no Gentlemen-Cadets
will be accepted and our class will be
without recruits, much like an officer
without a batman. The college facili-
ties will be used to train officers and
when our class graduates a year next
July, R.M.C. will be closed for the
duration of the war and used only as
a refresher course for these officers.
We all feel that our training at the
College, in the Battalion, in school
work and in sports, have aided us
greatly in getting into the R.M.C.
life. We hope that when R.M.C. is
reinstated Upper Canada will keep
up the tradition of sending one or
two recruits to be Gentlemen-Cadets
N. B. Corbett ('35-'40)
In the last two years there has been
a considerable influx from U.C.C.
We might mention that the adventur-
ous Weddites are in the majority and,
strange though it may seem, are all
getting along quite well. But, speak-
ing for all, we feel that the boys still
have their hearts in the old school
and regret that we are so out of
touch with it.
The following is a list of the Old
Boys who have come to McGill in
the last four years, with a scattered
comment affixed here and there.
Benj Dallis can still be seen at odd
intervals around the Engineering
Building. Nussbaum left at the
beginning of the session to join the
Air Force. Mick Crerar, between
studying maps, designing cars of 1950
and writing letters to the editor of the
McGill Daily, is attending lectures in
second year Mechanical Engineering.
Terry King is in second year Arts
and majoring in Modern Languages.
Don Todd is in second year Com-
merce and taking "socialite science."
Mouse Watson is in the same year,
but in Chemical Engineering. Bob
Armstrong has switched to Engineer-
ing from Medicine with the following
comment — quote — "No future in
Medicine" — unquote. Sandy McCal-
lum, as well as directing the social
activities of his fraternity, is pro-
ceeding in third year Maths and
Physics. Ed. Eaton is a partial stu-
dent in first year and was made first
B.S.M., then an officer in the McGill
Training Battalion. Roy Gentles is
much the same old Roy, struggling
along in first year Commerce.
Bill Wilder, who came down this
year, is also in first year Commerce
and has become an enthusiastic
weight-lifter. Bill Wood has dis-
tinguished himself by winning the
novice fencing championship. Julius
Mallin and Buck Porter in first year
Arts, Ted Fichter in Engineering,
and George Boukydis in Commerce,
are all preserving the College spirit
by living together in an apartment
close to the gates of the campus.
Last year most of the Old Boys at
McGill were in the McGill contingent
of the C.O.T.C., and the majority got
both their first and second papers
qualifying them for a second lieu-
tenancy in a militia regiment. This
year those who received their papers
are no longer in the contingent but
take six hours a week in the McGill
This year started off in true military
fashion with an issue of heavy army
boots and two pairs of socks. The
Old Boys can now be seen clumping
round the campus, distinguished from
civilians by the sole addition of a pair
of over-sized military boots. For-
tunately they do not have to possess
the same mirror-like quality that they
did in the days of the S.M.
T. A. S. King ('32-'39)
Now that our Christmas exams
are over, and we (the kingly "we")
have failed miserably, we are oblivious
to the slush, the ice, and the rain.
We have only thoughts of getting
home to the family (?) and such.
But let us look back over the past
few months, and see what College
Old Boys are at Queen's, and what
they have been doing.
This letter does not afford me space
enough to mention all the twenty-two
Old Boys down here, but I will
attempt to acquaint you with most
When I first came down here I saw
Nip Dewar once or twice; then I did
not see him for about six weeks, and
thought that he had given up the
ghost and gone home, but I saw him
again just a few days ago and learned
that Nip had the bug, yes, he has
been working very hard ... so they
say (Dewar family please note). Then
there is that very popular gent whom
former members of the College band
learned to fear. Although he was once
known as Jack he is now known as
Mr. J. C. (Joe College) Kee, the
Upper Canada fashion expert. W. J.
S. "Scotty" Melvyn is an Old Boy
whom we should be proud of because
he is our only representative in the
Meds faculty. Peter Ginn, who is
taking a post-graduate course, can
be seen running around in his smock
at any hour of the day or night.
Now that I have disposed of the
old men of Queen's I am forced to
deal with the ghastly spectacle of the
sophs. I say ghastly because when
you consider that an individual (very
explanatory) such as " Casey" Cor-
bett a product of our College, who by
this time should have some vague
sense of honour, can get up in the
soph court and perjure himself the
way he did against his fellow Old
Boys, and still boastingly call himself
an Upper Canada Old Boy ... I
cannot quite understand it. Why
cannot all sophs be like ''Happy"
Kidder, Ian McPhee, and Norm.
Rogers, a trio of quiet, conscientious,
studious, and law-abiding citizens?
Quiet in the cheap seats ! Those were
just some of the lowly frosh throwing
in a jeer for good measure.
Bobby Gamble has everyone sty-
mied. Last year he was in first year
Arts; this year in first year Science.
What is he, frosh or soph? Address
all entries for this truly exciting con-
test to Yahoodi, c/o Queen's Uni-
The scene changes. I see before me
one of the finest aggregations of man-
hood that I have ever seen before . . .
The Freshmen. The most prominent
figure in this scene is the youngster
of them all, Brad Heintzman. Brad
was elected president of Arts '44.
This rash action has been regretted
ever since, even by Barry Manning,
who was elected treasurer at the
same time. Brad was going to box
this year but he hit one of his sparring
partners too hard and suffered a
sprained hand. Doug Denny, on the
other hand, was on the receiving end
of a killer-diller, and so Upper Canada
will have no representatives in the
Queen's ring. Pete Stevenson was
called for the Air Force but has been
granted leave to finish his year.
The North and East are repre-
sented by Mcllroy, Ross Ferguson,
and Doug Buckley. Toronto can boast
of Andy Wedd, Cort MacKenzie, and
Jimmy Goad. Toronto seems to be
shy on the score of boasting of me, but
I am going to hitch my wagon to the
Toronto caravan anyway ... if I
I hope this letter will give our
fellow Old Boys, all across the coun-
try, an idea of just how well the
College is represented down here, and
will inform them of the whereabouts
of their former friends and conspirers.
All of us down here are looking
forward to the Times to find out the
activities of the other Old Boys.
Johnny Murdoch ('30-'40)
J. GRAEME WATSON ('02-'05)
Chairman of the Board of Governors
J. Graeme Watson, an Old Boy, the
father of two Old Boys and a present
boy, has been elected Chairman of the
Board of Governors. R. A. Laidlaw
('01-'05) has resigned from that posi-
tion after many years of generous
and devoted work; happily he con-
tinues as a member. Representatives
of the Old Boys' Association on the
Board are Harold A. Roberts ( 09-15),
A. Kelso Roberts ('15-' 16) and George
N. Hargraft ('98-'02). Other Old Boys
appointed by the Board are F. J.
Mulqueen ('03-'08) and Arnold C.
Matthews ('02-'06). As President of
the Board of Trade, R. C. Berkinshaw
('02-'09) is a governor ex officio. The
Hon. R. S. Robertson, the Hon. D. A.
McArthur, D. L. McCarthy, and the
Right Hon. Sir William Mulock are
governors ex officio, and G. T. Clark-
son, the Hon. Vincent Massey, J. B.
Bickersteth and Dr. R. C. Wallace
are appointed by the Board.
MAJOR-GENERAL C. F. CONSTANTINE
On November the se\ enth, nineteen
forty, the duties of District Officer
Commanding M.D. 2 were taken
over by Major-General C. F. Con-
stantine. He comes to Canada's
largest and most important training-
district as the senior major-general
in active command in the Canadian
Army. He is fully prepared for this
most important role, being armed
with a military experience that no
other Canadian can surpass.
He came to the College from the
wide open spaces of Saskatchewan
where his father was Superintendent
of the R.N.W.M.P. The beginning
of his forty years' experience was in
our own cadet corps, in which he
pounded a drum. Pounding a drum,
however, was not his only strong
point in the days of '02, for he was a
member of the great Junior O.H.A.
champion team of that year. His
hockey record in the Junior O.H.A.
has never been beaten, though
equalled by Forester of Kitchener and
Charlie Conacher. He played rugby,
hockey, and cricket at Upper Canada,
and the first two at R.M.C.
As one of his contemporaries put
it, he was noted at the College for
his cheery disposition, his ability as
a senior and his sense of fairness, his
figure, clothes, girls, and bad habits.
He left the College in 1902 and went
to R.M.C, from which he emerged in
1905 as C.S.M., "A" Coy. When he
returned to R.M.C. in his official
capacities he acted as a rugby lines-
man and hockey referee. We can
think of no referee who w r ould com-
mand more respect from unruly
His military career really began
when he joined the artillery in 1905.
When war broke out in 1914 he was a
captain and went overseas with the
First Division. He shortly became a
brigade major and the end of the war
found him a lieutenant-colonel with
a D.S.O. and bar. After the war he
became artillery professor at R.M.C.
He then went to a Staff College and
returned to Kingston to command the
Royal Can. Heavy Artillery Brigade
and in 1925 became Commandant of
R.M.C. Since 1930 he has been
D.O.C. at St. John, Kingston, and
twice at the strategically important
port of Halifax. He was Adjutant-
General in 1934.
When asked for a statement con-
cerning the present war he stated that
Youth was the keystone of the con-
flict. Only youth could retain physical
fitness over the long periods of strain
in this mobile war.
General Constantine is a soldier to
his finger tips, a strict disciplinarian,
but human to a great degree. He has
a hard position to fill and will do it
admirably, a credit to his old school
which hereby wishes him - — Good
Luck! R. Fleming ('30-'39)
JACK CONWAY CARPENTER
Fleet Air Arm; attached to No. 1^6
Killed in action, September 9th,
Jack Carpenter was the son of
Lieut, and Mrs. F. N. Carpenter, his
father being affectionately known
by so many Old Boys as the "S.M."
Jack attended the College from 1929
to 1938 and was one of the finest ever
to pass through. He was Officer
Commanding the Battalion, and there-
fore a Steward and a Prefect in Jack-
son's House, a First Team Hockey
Colour, Captain of College Soccer, and
finally a Herbert Mason Medallist.
He took leading parts in the Opera.
He was a real credit and a great asset
to the College.
FREDERIC SOUTHAM KER
Killed in action, September 12th,
Fred Ker was the son of Mr. and
Mrs. F. I. Ker of Ancaster. He was a
very distinguished member of the
College, taking a leading part in
dramatics and related activities. He
won the Wallace Rankin Nesbitt Cup
in Extempore Speaking and the J. \\ .
Beatty Prize in Reading. He was
successful in Track and Boxing. His
loss is felt in a special way.
Upper Canada College, the oldest
and best seat of education in Canada,
with combined athletic prowess and
unrivalled cultural advantages, is
supported entirely, apart from its
earnings, by the energy and largesse
of its Old Boys. This is well known,
but cannot be too often reiterated.
For some time past it has been felt
by the Board that not sufficient at-
tention, perhaps, was being paid to
maintaining contacts with Old Boys
in distant parts of the Dominion, the
Empire, and the world at large. Per-
haps the College publicity was being
inadequately handled; possibly insuf-
ficient advertising of the School, its
educational and athletic features, and
its Entrance Scholarships for New
Boys was being done, and in the
wrong mediums. At any rate the
College was not getting the support
it deserved from Old Boys, in regard
to new pupils, new friends, or new
members of the O.B.A.
With this in mind, your Board de-
vised a scheme whereby the Dominion,
the Empire, the United States, and
the world at large was divided into
zones, and a vigorous committee was
chosen for each zone or region, con-
sisting of a Master of the College and
two members of the Board to act with
him. These committees are now in
action, and each is endeavouring to
establish liaison with an enthusiastic
Old Boy in every large city, town or
other centre in its region, and through
him contact every Old Boy of the
College, with the frank purpose of
accomplishing the following results,
and finding out the following:
1. The correct present address of
every Old Boy, at home or abroad, in
business or in His Majesty's Forces.
2. An increase of the present active
membership of the O.B.A.
3. Whether you have a boy of
College age, Lower or Upper School.
Remember that this war makes it
impossible to send your boy to school
in the British Isles, and for many
reasons it is desirable that he should
be educated in the outstanding school
4. Whether the College is getting
the right kind of publicity and ad-
vertising in your region. If not, what
have you to offer in the way of sug-
gestions for improvement?
5. Why so many have apparently
lost interest in the Association? Is it
because insufficient attention has been
paid to you or your community? If
so, do you think it would be advisable
or could you gather a sufficient num-
ber of Old Boys in your section to
make it worth while sending out a
special representative who could give
an address, possibly coupled with
moving pictures illustrating the life
of the College and its many activities?
6. Any suggestions as to how closer
contact can be established and kept
up between the Association, the Col-
lege and its Old Boys.
May we say in conclusion that the
College will be glad to entertain
freely any Old Boy who may be pass-
ing through Toronto, in order that he
may refresh his memories of the Old
School and carry back a good report
of its works.
If you have any suggestions to
make, please correspond directly with
"The Regional Sub-committee" for
your region at the College.
A. N. Morine ('00-'03).
To the Old Boys of 78, '96 and
several more recent years we must
herewith apologize. We regret that
there is no one available to give up
to date word on their present athletic
prowess, or write of the games that
are now traditions; wins and losses
of past decades.
Our particular memory extends
back only to the days of "Red"
Gooderham, the Newtons, Bus
Symmes and others, with a faint
recollection of a Prep boy's hero
worship for "Hud" Stewart and his
Old Boys of earlier vintage than
those mentioned above are, of course,
always interested in the activities of
more recent graduates. However the
College to them is the College as
they left it in '87, '95 or '08. Foot-
ball to them means the football they
themselves played or watched. Inter-
esting though the cricket of younger
Old Boys may be when recorded in
these columns, they think of the
games played when St. Andrew's was
located in Toronto.
Many of us, who have a warm spot
in our heart for some small town and
subscribe faithfully to its weekly
Courier, are familiar with a column
headed "Thirty years ago to-day"
in the half-Victorian half-modern
scroll of the early twenties, under
which is the legend "Items of interest
taken from the issue of the Courier
of January 15, 1911".
To those of us who can remember
back that far, it brings back one
memory which leads to another,
gradually presenting a clear and
spreading picture of the old days.
Wouldn't it be the same with the
Old Boys' College Times? After
all, it is the Courier of this com-
munity. Think of the memories it
would arouse in say, Seth Pepler, to
read an account of a game he played
back in 1911.
Most of us never look back enough
on the everyday activities to appreci-
ate the languid mellowness they
acquire as the years speed by. The
past has to be presented to us as
news. Most of us never read our
daily papers so thoroughly as we do
the small 4x6 sheets of newsprints
which used to be synonymous with
We wish some Old Boys would
offer to write of the escapades of
their contemporaries, and the sports
of the times. The only way we can
preserve these traditions ... or build
them into traditions ... is to tell
the younger generations of the feats
of the older. Let's make this Old
Boys' issue the 19th hole of the
The past football season saw the
College represented on both Toronto
Senior teams, for in the pre-season
City Championship game between
Balmy Beach and Argonauts, Bill
Drinkwater, Ed Lea, and Ken Turn-
bull were with the former while Don
Grant sported Argo colours. Bill
Drinkwater turned in a brilliant
season for the Beaches, his slashing
running improving steadily with each
game. Ken Turnbull, though not
so outstanding as his team mate in a
spectacular sense, played sound foot-
ball offensively and defensively on
the line all season. This game was
the only one in which Grant appeared
this season, giving up football to
study for certain military exams.
The name of another Old Boy
appeared prominently in the gridiron
headlines too, as Lieut. Jack Taylor,
coach of the Camp Borden O.R.F.U.
entry. Jack himself didn't don a
uniform this season, being content
to master mind from the bench.
At R.M.C. Bunny McWilliams
captained the senior football team,
while Norm Corbett starred on the
team. Elimination of the Inter-
collegiate league left Brad Heintz-
man, Bobby Gamble and many other
erstwhile pigskin toters unemployed
for the season. We were pleased to
see them attending the College games
and hope that the league will be
operating again in the near future,
as it is always a thrill to see Brad
plough through a line, or Bob make
one of his thunderbolt tackles.
Despite a free meal served at the
College in an attempt to "sabotage"
their condition, the not so Old Boys
were pushed out onto the shiny
surface of Maple Leaf Gardens, and
proceeded to defeat their even
less old opponents by a score of 8 to 7.
All in all, the Old Boys scored 11
goals to 4 for the College boys, as
referee Conny Smythe was responsi-
ble for three U.C.C. goals. Play
opened somewhat ragged, the Old
Boys controlling the puck. It took
them five minutes to get under way
at which time Leake scored on an
assist from McLaughlin. Johnny
Jarvis in the O.B. nets turned aside
several determined rushes led by
Mara and Simpson of the present
boys until the Old Boys again got
under way, Gilchrist slamming home
a second goal. One minute later
Jack Stafford made the count 3 to
on a nice rush to end the first period.
In the wild second period Conny
Smythe banned goaler Jarvis who
had just halted several nice rushes
by the College team. A penalty
shot had just been granted to Mara
of the College and he beat Jarvis
cleanly for the Presents' first score.
Then Jarvis took his penalty and
Ken Turnbull tried his hand at net
minding, after first allowing a second
penalty shot to make the score 3 to
2 (Mara again). Don Simpson scored
on the (open?) net twice to make it
4 to 3 as Jarvis returned to his net.
Two minutes later the Old Boys tied
it up on Turner's goal and three
minutes later were again two goals
up, when both Ross and Gilchrist
scored. Old Boys 6, Presents 4.
One minute after this period opened,
Simpson, Ridley and Mara combined
to score on a nice effort. One
minute later the Old Boys netted
their seventh goal as Urquhart and
Douglas broke away. As the hands
of the Sportimer reached the 10-
minute mark, this same pair again
beat Kent to make it 8 to 5. The
College put on a sustained attack for
the closing minutes and almost tied
it up as Simpson scored twice, but
the Old Boys were unbeatable in
front of Jarvis' superb net minding
the game ended 8 to 7.
In a pre-game exhibition the Prep
Whites defeated the Blues 2 to 1 in
a real old Prep game of shinny.
Between the first and second periods
Miss Nora McCarthy and Miss
Shirley Halstead gave a fine exhi-
bition of figure skating while before
the third period the Bugle Band

Tournament was held at Summit
this year and despite most unpromis-
ing weather sixty-six Old Boys

off in this event.
