D. W. Grant ('33- '39)

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 
corrections. 

Harold A. Roberts, 

President. 



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- 
cess. 

"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 
the College. 

"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."

MEMBERSHIP 



The membership of the Association 
has taken a jump in the last year 
from 682 to 703. This figure does not 
include the London, England, mem- 
bership, which generally averages 
about 50. 



The life membership, 398 in 1939, 
has risen this year to the all-time high 
of 420. This figure represents well 
over half of the total, and speaks 
well for the enthusiasm of our Old 
Boys. 



LONDON, ENGLAND 



We regret to advise we have not a 
list of appointments of the branch to 
date, but feel quite safe in assuming 
that Mr. W. S. Jackson will still be 
the Honorary President. Mr. R. B. 
Brett, the Secretary, is on Active Ser- 
vice, and Mr. D. M. Johnson, the 
Treasurer, has kindly taken on the 
duties of Secretary as well. 



A cordial invitation has been ex- 
tended by Mr. D. M. Johnson, 17-19 
Cockspur Street, London, S.W.I. , for 
all Old Boys of the College who are 
overseas in His Majesty's Forces to 
call and see him at any time. 

The Association extends its sincere 
thanks to Mr. Johnson. 



YEAR REPRESENTATIVES 



Before the Old Boys' hockey game 
this year a number of the most recent 
graduates, who could be reached by 
telephone, were asked to the College 
for dinner. The small meeting was 



enthusiastic and elected representa- 
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 
Dominion." 

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. 

The following attended the meeting 



which was held in the Empress Hotel : 
Wing-Commander H. G. Reid ; G. Ham- 
ilton Harman, Vice-President, '93-'97 
K. W. L. Scace, Secretary, '22-'23 ; Col 
A. W. R. Wilby, '86-'92 ; G. L. Smith 
'83-'88 ; Hugh Peters, '05-'07 ; R. F. Hinton 
'20-'22; F. J. Mcintosh, '85-'90; E. K 
Debeck, '97-'98 ; Alex. McCallum, '36-'39 
Col. Eric Pepler, '05-'07 ; Lieut. A. D 
Morris, '26-'28 ; W. A. Patterson, '96-'00 
Dr. H. B. King and A. G. A. Stephen. 



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 
College. 



The Old Boys' Association wishes 
to express its sorrow at the death of 
Dr. Jack Maynard, an Old Boy of 
T.C.S. whose devotion to sportsman- 
ship aided and inspired not only his 
own old school but, less directly, 
U.C.C.

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 



Matriculation 

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 
at McGill. 

Numbers 
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. 

Staff 
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. 



8 



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. 

Sports 

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 
bounding spirits. 

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 junior. 

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. 

Extra-curricular 

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. 

Prize Day 
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-

expressed the traditions and dignity 
of the College as a Canadian institu- 
tion. 



VARSITY 



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 



10 



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 
Jim Simpson. 

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 
secure promotion.

R.M.C 



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 
the underdogs. 

This year Upper Canada had a 



11 



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 
Secretary. 

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 
Queen's University. 

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 
at R.M.C.

McGILL 



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 



12 



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 
Training Battalion. 

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.

QUEEN'S 



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 
of them. 

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 



13 



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- 
versity. 

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 
may. 

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 
players. 

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 
Squadron R.A.F. 

Killed in action, September 9th, 
1940. 

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 

Royal Navy 

Killed in action, September 12th, 
1940. 

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. 



OUTSIDE TORONTO 



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 
in Canada. 

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.

SPORTS 



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 
contemporaries. 

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 
outdoor plumbing. 

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 
College. 



FOOTBALL 

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 



20 



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. 



HOCKEY 

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.

front of Jarvis' superb net minding 
the game ended 8 to 7.
