No doubt thousands of words, good and bad, have been 
written about boarding school life and its comparison to 
the ordinary high school curriculum. Although I am, in a 
way, going to increase this number, my object is not to 
debate these points one way or another but merely to point 
out one advantage offered by boarding school life to those 
who wish it, and to discuss this important factor directly 
as it applies to T.C.S. 

A school such as T.C.S. could not function without the 
co-operation of the boys. There is, of course, a Head- 


master and a staff who. in the opinion of some around the 
School, have exercised and still do exercise, complete con- 
trol over all matters, ruling the School in the form of an 
autocracy. This idea is as foolish as it is shallow. The mas- 
ters are here because they are experienced and have ability 
to teach the boys; the boys are here to learn. Therefore 
it is obvious that the masters will control the scholastic 
end of the School life entirely without the aid of the boys. 
Classes, however, represent only one side of our education 
here. The extra-curricular life is to a large extent directly 
up to the boys themselves. All the teams, of course, have 
coaches but a coach can do little without the co-operation 
of his players. If the boys themselves are not willing to 
play and work with the coach and other players it is cer- 
tain that the team will be worth nothing although it may 
have an excellent coach. 

More important than either the classroom or playing 
field are the lessons a boy learns on how to live har- 
moniously with others. Surely this cannot be done with- 
out the co-operation of the boys themselves. They must 
learn to adjust themselves to fit in with others, they have 
to be able to give up graciously some of their own personal 
desires for the good of the majority. There is also in the 
school life here a close co-operation between masters and 
privileges — House Officers, Seniors, and Prefects. These 
boys perform many duties about the School and a great 
amount of trust and faith is placed in their co-operation. 
In a way, the formation of these privileges tends to make 
certain cliques in the School which are resented by others. 
This should not be the case — that is, there should not be 
the cliques and also boys shouldn't resent these privileges. 
There has to be as close co-operation between the boys and 
the Seniors and Prefects as there is between the Seniors 
and Masters. A system of having the boys in the fifth 
and sixth forms vote for privileges was begun this year 
and seems to have worked out very successfully. Here, 


the boys themselves are choosing their own leaders and 
thus they have no cause to resent the boys of their own 
choice. This voting for privileges is another instance 
where the co-operation of the boys is needed to run the 
School and keep it functioning properly. 

There are here as elsewhere certain boys who have 
little spirit of co-operation, but want only to "get away" 
with as much as possible and to get as much as they can 
out of the School while giving nothing in return. One big 
advantage of boarding school is that boys are not required 
to attend by law and thus it is not necessary for a boarding 
school to keep this type of boy. This seems the only 
sensible way to look at the problem for if the boy has no 
thought for the School but only for himself he is not doing 
himself or the School any good. 

It is this essential and basic idea of living in close com- 
munion with others and co-operating for the good of every- 
one which a School like T.C.S. teaches a boy and so pre- 
pares him in no small way for his future life in society.

Ambassador of Christ 


When we recall some of the greatest modern builders of the 
reign of God upon earth, the name of Charles Henry Brent flashes 
instantly upon our attention. All who knew this rare spirit, re- 
fined in the furnace of God, recognized one who had offered up 
his life, as a living sacrifice, on the altar of the service of God 
in this world. 

At first a rather shy, diffident clergyman quietly exercising 
his ministry as an inconspicuous priest in a South Boston slum- 
area parish, Charles Henry Brent developed during the yeairs into 
one of the most intrepid and gallant ambassadors of Christ the 
world has known for many years. When he died, the night of 
March 27, 1929, in Lausanne, Switzerland, a city which had be- 
come a symbol of his life, the Christian world mourned the pass- 
ing of a tall, somewhat austere, often deeply lonesome man who 
had grown during his lifetime into one of modern Christendom's 
foremost leaders, prophets, and seers. 

A consecrated Christian spirit, mind, and will; a friend of hu- 
manity, a servant of God, a gifted writer and commanding preach- 
er, a missionary statesman, a Christian gentleman, a prophet of 
world unity, and the 20th century's greatest champion and apostle 
of Christian unity — Charles Henry Brent has been fitly called 
"Everybody's Bishop." At home at different times in Canada, 
Western New York, Massachusetts, the Philippines, the Orient, 
Europe's battlefields, no corner of the world can claim him as its 

Though born a Canadian, Charles Henry Brent was an Ameri- 
can citizen for almost forty years, combining a deep devotion to 
British ideals and customs with a militant patriotism for the 
United States of America. He was born in Newcastle, Ontario, 
Canada, on April 9, 1862, the son of The Reverend Canon Henry 
Brent and his wife Sophia, in a parish where his father was rec- 
tor for forty-two years. FYom his earliest memory his mind was 
set on the ministry. At one time he said, "I do not recall an 
instant of my life when I aspired to any vocation excepting that 
of the Ministry, but on one brief occasion when I faced the possi- 
bility of becoming a musician. As a boy at school the Ministry 
seemed to me the one vocation worth considering .... Were I 
again on the threshold of life I would choose as I have chosen." 


His education was carried out with a view to his calling. He 

prepared for college at Trinity College School, Port Hope, Ontario, 

one of Canada's great boys' schools, and in 1884 he was graduated 

from Trinity College, Toronto, with classical honors. In school 


and in college he distinguished himself not only as a gifted and 
apt scholar but as a formidable athlete. 

The Right Rev. Dr. Sweatman, the Bishop of Toronto, ordain- 
ed him to the diaconate in 1886, the next year elevating him to 
the priesthood. His first position was curate and organist at St. 
John's Church, Buffalo, where he remained a year. Then he 
became curate on the staff of St. Paul's Church (now Cathedrals 
in Buffalo, in charge of St. Andrew's Mission which at that time 
was located on Spruce Street. He attempted to place candles on 
the altar and Bishop Coxe objecting, he departed for Boston where 
he remained from 1888 until 1891. During the Boston years he 
lived at the mission-house of the Cowley Fathers where, under the 
guidance of Fathers Hall, Osborne and Torbet, he learned the 
lessons of the ordered life. One of his duties was to minister to 
St. Augustine's Colored Mission. 

In 1891 Bishop Phillips Brooks placed Father Torbet and the 
future Bishop Brent in charge of an abandoned church in the 
south end of Boston which they revived under the name of St. 
Stephen's Church. Brent was at this time 29 years old. For ten 
years he remained at St. Stephen's with Father Torbet, serving 
as rector only the last two months. 

The years at St. Stephen's were important and valuable ones 
for the young churchman. His humble, inconspicuous work in a 
struggling parish in a crowded neighborhood of underprivileged 
people proved good schooling for his naturally aristocratic mind. 
These years deepened not only his ideas of religion but also his 
insight into human character. It was in these years that he began 
tc learn a truth which undergirded his whole life, thought, and 
activity, namely, the essential value of every man, of whatever 
race or color or creed. Mingling with the loafers on Boston Com- 
mon helped his heart to grow deeper and his blood to flow 
warmer.. He came to know people, all sorts of people. It was 
during these "hidden years" that Charles Henry Brent forged him- 
self into the man who received one day in the autumn of 1901 a tele- 
giam from San Francisco informing him of his election by The 
House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church as Missionary Bishop 
of the Philippine Islands. 

Missionary Bishop 

It is interesting to note that only a few days before receiving 
notification of his election as Bishop of the Philippines, W. S. 
Rainsford was considering Charles Henry Brent as "the best man 
for the associate with himself at St. George's Church, New York 

"He is, of course, a High Churchman," said Rainsford to his 
senior warden, J. Pierpont Morgan, "but he is not as high as when 
he sought 'the order.' He is a man of God. He is in sympathy 
with the present time. His eyes are in the front of his head, and 
not in the back. He can preach. He loves men and understands 
them. And he is a democrat". 


It was in Juno 1901, by the way, that his name came up for 
prominent consideration as Bishop-Coadjutor of Minnesota. Bishop 
Henry Codman Potter in recommending Doctor Alsop and Charles 
Kenry Brent said of the latter: 

"His traditions are those of a modern high churchman with 
singularly large and noble conceptions of the relation of the 
church to humanity. I know no man in the American Church 
who is, in some of the highest respects, — character, competency 
for leadership, enthusiasm, directness, personal attractiveness, and 
high spiritual qualities, — Mr. Brent's superior." 

No more words are needed to emphasize the man Charles 
Henry Brent had become by 1901 and to indicate the high regard 
in which he was held by high dignitaries and leaders of the Church 
at that time. 

In the summer of 1902 the young Bishop sailed out to his 
island diocese, joining at Suez, the Governor-General, William 
Howard Taft. It was to a big and pioneer task that he set forth. 
The next few years in the Philippines clearly made manifest to 
all the caliber of the young missionary bishop the Church had 
sent out to the new island-empire of the United States. 

As a matter of fixed policy. Bishop Brent confined his work 
in the Philippines to the Army, official circles, and the Moros and 
Igorots. His was a hard assignment, but in short order he was 
winning men to goodness and to Christ on the basis of their com- 
pelling beauty and by the contagion of his own manly idealism. 
General John J. Pershing and General Leonard Wood were con- 
firmed by Bishop Brent in Manila, but two of a host of Army and 
government officials who were led into the Church's fellowship 
by Bishop Brent. 

In the Philippines, Bishop Brent not only gave: he also re- 
ceived. He tells us that "it was among the pagan peoples that I 
learned that equality before God of all men, which I count to be 
the chief treasure I have honestly made my own in my life time." 
His experience with the Moros and Igorots was simply an ad- 
vanced course in what he had begun to learn in the slum-sections 
of Boston. 

Expanding Interests 

The strength of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines be- 
fore the recent war, during it, and the surety of its revived vigor 
in the years at hand is testimony to the inspired leadership and 
energetic labors of Bishop Brent. During the years of his episco- 
pate f 1901-1918) hospitals, churches, schools for boys and girls, 
mission-stations, and a great cathedral-center were established, 
the Bishop always building boldly for a large future. 

It was while resident in the Orient, on the frontier of Chris- 
tianity, that the desperate need for a united Christendom impinged 
forcibly on Bishop Brent's still forming mind. Here it was that 


he pledged himself to labor for the cause of Christian unity all 
the days of his life. 

His Philippine Islands ministry was frequently interrupted by 
trips back to the United States. Bishop Brent always enjoyed 
the rest and leisure of these long sea-voyages which gave him 
opportunity for reading, meditation, and writing. 

The young missionary leadei- was sought as their leader by 
many "home" dioceses during these years. In 1908 he declined a 
call to become Bishop of Washington. Two times more he was 
called and two times more he refused. He was also elected to and 
declined the bishopric of New Jersey. 

It was during the first decade of the new century that Bishop 
Brent rose into national and international prominence. The priest, 
who not so many years before had seriously considered entering 
the monastic life, was at this time, equally at home in the hut 
of a Moro savage or a diplomatic embassy. And it was during 
this period that we witness Bishop Brent more than winning his 
spurs as a diplomat and statesman. 

The greatest evil in Filipino society. Bishop Brent and the 
government soon discovered, was opium, and to its extirpation 
Bishop Brent directly bent his efforts. Within a year after the 
official party of the island governor-general had assumed their 
duties, a commission had been appointed to investigate the use of 
and traffic in opium and the laws regarding such use and traffic 
in Japan, Formosa, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Saigon, Singapore, 
Burma, Java, and the Philippine Islands. Major E. C.Carter, U.S. 
Army, Dr. Jose Albert and Bishop Brent comprised the commis- 
sion. The commission assembled August 13, 1903, at Manila and 
gathered data until February 5, 1904. Then, from February 8, 
1904 until March 15, 1904, the committee sat daily from 10 a.m. 
until 1 p.m., and finally presented its report. Briefly, the plan 
recommended was for opium to become a government monopoly 
immediately, this to become prohibition, except for medical pur- 
poses, after three years. 

But the work of this opium commission was but introductory 
to the great International Opium Conference at Shanghai during 
February 1909, over which Bishop Brent sat as president, which 
was dominated by his leadership and vision, and which was by 
him singlehandedly brought to a happy outcome. Bishop Brent 
also acted as chief commissioner of the American delegation to 
this meeting. He again served as chairman of a United States 
delegation to an international opium conference in 1911 and 1912 
at The Hague. 

First World War 

By the outbreak of the World War, Bishop Brent was a world- 
renowned figure, a friend of national leaders in many countries, 
a citizen of the world, a foremost leader in the affairs of his 
Church. Though he was an ardent lover of peace, he accepted 


General Pershing's invitation to act as Chief-of-Chaplains of the 
American Expeditionary Force. His war career is really a separate 
story by itself. To him, the war was an unmitigated disaster and 

Popularly-known as "the khaki-colored bishop," Bishop Brent 
was all through the dark days of war a pillar of idealism and a 
tower of moral strength. He was frequently employed as a good- 
will ambassador smoothing-out friction between organizations en- 
gaged in war work or on a high diplomatic errand ironing out 
friction between nations. He was a constant and constructive 
interpreter between the United States and Great Britain, and it 
was entirely natural and fitting that General Pershing should 
choose him to deliver his message in 1918 to the men of the British 
and American ships in the North Sea. He used all the prestige 
of his position to secure action from the French Government in 
suppressing the organized vice which threatened the morality of 
the army. 

His war years were for him a soul-searching experience. If 
into the war Bishop Brent went a priest, he came out of it a 
prophet. Deeply- baptized in suffering, more international than 
ever before in his outlook and influence, he now added one more 
cause to those which he served — the cause of permanent peace. He 
struggled for it all the rest of his days. 

The war ended a chapter in his life, as it did for many an- 
other man. He did not return to his missionary bishopric in the 
Orient, but came to Western New York over which diocese he 
served as diocesan bishop until his death. He was accorded a 
huge acknowledgment service in St. Paul's Cathedral, Buffalo, 
on February 7, 1919, in the church where years before he had 
served as curate. The diocese granted him an assistant the next 
year when The Rev. David Lincoln Ferris, D.D., of Rochester was 
consecrated his suffragan. 

Bishop Brent gave his best to his diocese, faithfully fulfilling 
his episcopal duties and discharging the myriad tasks that fell to 
his hand. He made his home in the See House, Buffalo, and took 
care of the western half of the diocese, while Bishop Ferris lived 
in Rochester and took care of the eastern half of the diocese 
(now the Diocese of Rochester.) In one sense the diocese paid a 
penalty for having so eminent a leader for its head: the Bishop 
was continually called away from the diocese on some mission; 
but the diocese was proud to have its bishop a man of such stature 
and devoting himself to the causes to which he pledged all his 
energy during these years. 

Church Unity 
Among the many calls that came to him during these years 
of residence in Buffalo were: giving the Duff Lectures in Edin- 
burgh, Aberdeen, and Glasgow, in 1921; serving actively as a 
member of the Board of Overseers of Harvard University; acting 


as delegate to the League of Nations Conference on Narcotics in 
1923 and 1924; acting as chairman of the subcommittee on inter- 
national aflairs at the Universal Christian Conference on Life 
and Work in Stockholm in August, 1925; functioning also as 
bishop-in-charge of the American Episcopal churches in Europe 
1926-1928; and, finally, presiding over the First World Conference 
on Faith and Order in Lausanne in 1927. 

The causes of permanent world peace and Christian unity lay 
especially close to his heart in these postwar years. Repeatedly 
he preached on these subjects and more and more his public utter- 
ances became less sermons and more prophecies and fragments 
of visions. 

The greatest claim laid upon him during these years, which 
proved to be the last ten years of his life, was the necessity for a 
re-united Church. "The unity of Christendom," he declared, "is 
not a luxury, but a necessity, and the world will go limping until 
Christ's prayer that all may be one is answered." From every 
angle he saw its dire urgency. As a missionary, he saw that a 
divided Church could not succeed in its task of the conversion of 
great nations. He had witnessed at first-hand the waste of energy, 
money, personnel, and the confusion and weakness of competing 
Christian bodies. As a statesman, he realized that until the Church 
could give its united witness to the problems of education and mo- 
rality, social and international justice, the greatest force for 
righteousness would be lacking in modern life. As a mystic, he 
saw the matter of Christian unity in terms of the mind of God 
and set the aim for complete organic unity. 

His work for Church unity, through the World Conference on 
Faith and Order, became the major interest in his life. It pos- 
sessed him and permeated him. It seemed to many during these 
years that his zeal for unity was leading him to minimize funda- 
mentals of Christian doctrine. He was criticized for the breadth 
of his definition of the Catholic Church and especially for his 
latitudinarianism with regard to Holy Orders. 

The high point of his life and ministry was, without any 
doubt, the First World Conference on Faith and Order convened 
in Lausanne in 1927, where, as President, he won not only the 
approval but the admiration and love of the delegates who had 
assembled from 40 different countries and represented 70 auton- 
omous Christian communions. 

His Death 

The Bishop's last great sermon was delivered in Canterbury 
Cathedral in November, 1928. It was, prophetically enough, on 
the subject: "The Way to Peace." He was in England at the time 
to attend the enthronement of the new Archbishop of Canterbury. 
After the ceremony, on the advice of his physician. Sir Thomas 
Barlow, he did not return to America. He spent the next three 
months at the American Embassy in London, the guest of Ambas- 


sador Houghton, where he passed the days in quiet and comfort, 
seeking recovery. Apparently somewhat improved in health and 
with the hope of gaining more strength, he undertook, in March, 
1929, a trip across the continent through Switzerland to the Med- 
iterranean where he and Sir Thomas Barlow were to embark on 
the yacht "Asia" for a cruise. He arrived in Paris on March 21st 
and called on General Pershing and attended service at Holy 
Trinity Church on Palm Sunday, the last service he ever attended. 
He left Paris the next morning, stopping at Lausanne. Here in 
the city which had become the enduring symbol of his life, of his 
greatest contribution to Christendom he died March 27, 1929. The 
Bishop had copied in a book found in his room the following words 
of Theodore Roosevelt: "The tree should lie where it falls." And 
so Lausanne became the final resting-place for this gallant, dar- 
ing, and consecrated soldier and servant of Christ. 

Bishop Brent, in his lifetime, was honored by many academic 
bodies and by the governments of several nations. He held three 
degrees from Trinity College, Toronto, his alma mater — Bachelor 
and Master of Arts and Doctor of Divinity. Honorary degrees 
were awarded him by King's College, Harvard University, Yale 
University, University of Glasgow, Columbia University, the Uni- 
versity of Rochester, Union College, the University of Toronto, 
and New York University. With humble pride he wore the Dis- 
tinguished Service Medal of the United States and the ribbons of 
a Commander of the Order of Leopold of Belgium, Companion of 
the Bath of England, Officer of the Legion of Honor of France. 

Considering the activity and fullness of his career as a mis- 
sionary bishop and Christian statesman, Bishop Brent might be 
called a relatively prolific writer. Twenty-one full-sized books 
appear over his name, not counting a sizeable number of pamph- 
lets, reports, and articles. 

As Bishop in a great communion in Christendom, and, in the 
opinion of many, its greatest son; as a faithful servant of God, as 
a friend of humanity, as an apostle of Christian unity, as a prophet 
of a united world dwelling in harmony and peace, as a spiritual 
leader of fighting men in wartime, as a gifted preacher, brilliant 
lecturer and speaker, as one who was truly a man of God, and as 
President of the First World Conference on Faith and Order, 
Charles Henry Brent will long be held in honor. 

"There are two types of successful men," the late Bishop 
Charles Lewis Slattery of Massachusetts once said. "One type un- 
dertakes only such tasks as can be completed triumphantly with- 
in a definite time. These men announce their reasonable goal, 
and then, in their own lifetime, attain it. Brent was of the higher 
type, which dared to gaze far beyond the limits of one man's life, 
or of the immediate century or age. An adventurer he was on 
uncharted seas."

Cross Magazine, West Park, New York.) 



On the first Sunday of the term, the School had the 
pleasure of hearing a short address delivered by Archbishop 
dePencier, retired Bishop of New Westminster, B.C., who 
had just returned from the meeting of the General Synod 
at Winnipeg. 

Archbishop dePencier spoke on the theme that to us 
is given the power to become the children of God, but that 
before this can be accomplished v/e must prepare ourselves 
in three ways, which he outlined to us. 

The first was that we must give ourselves wholly to 
God, not only on Sundays, but on every day of the week. 
The second counsel that the Archbishop gave us, was 
that we must know ourselves, our dangers and our diffi- 
culties, as well as our physical and intellectual powers. 
Thirdly, he said, we must forget ourselves; that we must 
never be selfish, and as the prime example of imselfish 
devotion we were reminded of our Lord's sacrifice on the 


In conclusion he gave us a short rhyme, which he said 
he had learned years ago, and which he asked us to re- 
member and recite to him the next time he returns to the 
School. It was: 

"Never tell a lie, 
Never say die, 
Never stick your finger in another buddy's pie." 

We are very indebted to Archbishop dePencier, and 
we sincerely hope that he will return soon. 

The Rev. E. R. Bagley preached his first sermon of 
the School year on Sunday, September 21. He commenced 
by deploring the state of affairs in the world today, say- 
ing that this is primarily due to the extreme selfishness 
and worldliness of people. 

The world clearly needs brotherhood, charity, trust 
and freedom from fear. At T.C.S. we have a perfect set- 
ting for understanding and practising these truths, and we 
must come to understand that spiritual wealth is far more 
important than worldly wealth. Jesus taught us this when 
He said, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, 

but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 

for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also". 

In closing Mr. Bagley said that it is the comprehension 
of the spirit of God which will bring forth in us the things 
of most value. 

On Sunday. October 13. the Rev. J. M. Crisall, rector 
of St. John's Church, Port Hope, preached at Evensong. 

He commenced by telling us the story of the feast 
which King Solomon gave in honour of those who had 
built the Temple. The place of honour on his right had 
been reserved for the most skilful craftsman, but the 
assembled guests could not decide who it was among them 


who merited this privilege. Just before the feast was to 
begin, a stranger entered and declared that he was the only 
man present who deserved the honour of sitting at the 
King's right. On finding that he was the blacksmith, the 
man who had done all the hard work and who had made 
the tools for those who were now getting the credit, the 
King immediately invited him to take the disputed place. 

This story, he pointed out, shows us that it has been 
largely the work of the unknown and unrecognized which 
has given us the great heritage which is ours. It is the 
duty of everyone to strive to live up to the principles of 
Christianity, for it is only through Christianity that we 
shall achieve progress, happiness and world-wide peace. 

In closing Mr. Crisall quoted Tennyson's famous lines 
"Be loyal to the Royal", from which comes our challenge 
to help to lead the way to a better world, through the fel- 
lowship of our Lord, Jesus Christ. 

On Sunday, October 7, the Headmaster spoke in 
Chapel. He quoted the qualities mentioned by Field Marshal 
Viscount Montgomery as being vital in war and now more 
necessary than ever in peace. They were discipline, leader- 
ship and morale. The only worthwhile discipline in a 
democracy is self discipline; leadership comes through at- 
taining character ("the sum of one's best thoughts and 
experiences translated into action") and respect, and 
morale is the product of faith and confidence in oneself and 
one's ideals. The Headmaster mentioned some gold ore 
which had been given to the School and said it reminded 
him of the vein of gold in every human being; it had to be 
discovered, one had to dig for it, and then refine it. 

To-day we are at the cross roads of world progress. 
We have more power at our command than ever before but 
if we take the wrong path, become fearful and hostile, v/e 
shall slip into a dark age. God is our hope and strength 
and we must be doers of the word and not hearers only. 


The Choir 

There were many friendly faces missing when the 
choir reassembled this term, among them Wade, Taylor i 
(oboe). Gilbert, Palmer, Grier, Stokes, Hibbard, all from 
the Bass section. 

Caldbick, Crowe and Hawke i from the Tenors and 
Prower from the Altos. 

Without exception a more faithful, cheerful and use- 
ful lot of boys could not be more missed by any Choir- 
master and our sincere thanks are theirs for assistance. 

Nor must the Trebles be forgotten or their contribu- 
tion in time and effort be overlooked, Strathy, Peters. 
Lawson and Woods who were treble leads ; also Mof f itt and 
McKinnon, all have moved up to the Senior School and are 
not in the Choir pending vocal adjustment. 

As the Choristers were called upon to do the majority 
of the work in the "Pirates of Penzance", both principals 
and chorus, entailing much extra practice, opportunities to 
prepare special music for Chapel services were curtailed 
considerably. We hope somehow to remedy this, this year. 

We welcome many new members who have volunteered 
to assist us. 

The Choir at present is as follows: 

Bass — Curtis, Taylor i, Campbell ii, Campbell iii. Law- 
son i, Deverall, Thompson ii, Pearson, James, Dalley, 

Tenors — Goering, Stewart, Watts, Newcomb, Graham 
and Boulden. 

Altos — Cooper. McKenzie, Butterfield, Bovey, and 
Tench and Ketchum from the J.S. 

Trebles (J.S.) — Wilding, Farley, Levey, Spencer, Mc- 
Cullagh, Willoughby, Price, Woolley, McDonough, Symons. 
Anderson, Norman, Hunt, Clark, Seagram and Southam. 

Probationers — Fitzgerald, Meredith, Nevin, Osier ii, 
Strathy and Richardson,

Imperial Challenge Shield and Band Cup 

On the twenty- seventh of September the Head- 
master announced the results of the 1945 shoot for the 
Imperial Challenge Shield. The School came second in the 
Empire with an average of 91.9%, while winning the 
Devonshire Trophy for coming first in the Dominion for 
the fifth consecutive year. 

The Band has also won a high distinction. For the 
first time in the history of the School, we won the Lieu- 
tenant J. G. Wiser trophy for the best cadet band in M.D. 3. 
We congratulate all the members of last year's band on 
their success. 


Summer Jobs 

This year, owing to the large number of returned sol- 
diers, summer jobs were not as plentiful as in previous 
years. In spite of this, many boys from the School did 
work and earned not only good wages but also valuable 
experience. A large number of these worked on farms, a 
very necessary job at any time but especially so this year, 
and they have the satisfaction of knowing that they have 
contributed to one of the largest harvests in Canada's his- 
tory. Several boys worked in summer resorts in all parts 
from the Atlantic coast to the Rockies. Summer camps 
give the young boys of Canada a splendid chance to spend 
part of their summer in the open air, and many boys from 
the School worked as counsellors-in-training in these 
camps. Among the most interesting jobs were those of 
Carson, who went on a month long oil prospecting trip in 
Northern Alberta, and Mclntyre who was a stoker on a 
lake tanker, while McDowell i drove cars from Toronto to 
Timmins, and Cox i worked as a stevedore in Bermuda. 
From these few illustrations it is easy to see what interest- 
ing, useful and varied jobs were done by the boys of the 
School last summer. 

The New Temiis Court 

On Sunday, September 16, immediately after the 
morning Chapel service, the School's new hard tennis court 
was opened by Peter Pangman, the son of the donor, when 
he hit the first ball over the net to last year's champion, 
Brewer. This court is a great asset to the School, en- 
abling many more boys to play, as the two existing courts 
have been found insufficient for the large number of those 
who wished to use them. We are extremely indebted to 
Mrs. J. B. Pangman of Montreal for her very generous and 
much needed gift. 


New Boys' Picnic 

On Sunday, September fifteenth, immediately after 
the official opening of the new tennis court, about seventy 
boys, sixty-four of them new boys (plus the House Pre- 
fects) were packed into cars and bounced to a very de- 
lightful spot near the ski camp. There, while the Head- 
master with the able assistance of Mr. and Mrs. Bagley, 
Mr. Knight, and Mr. Lewis, was preparing a sumptuous 
repast, the boys divided according to houses and played a 
very spirited if not exactly skilful game of softball. 

After lunch it had been planned to continue the games, 
but this suggestion was voted down, and for two hours 
comparative silence reigned, broken only by the low voices 
of groups of boys sprawled under shady trees. Others 
scattered through the woods and along the river. This 
year's picnic will be remembered for the near disaster to 
Mr. Knight when he caught on fire while frying sausages 
in his special way. Many thanks are due to Mr. and Mrs. 
Ketchum and their assistants for a very enjoyable day. 

New Boys* Race 

The annual New Boys' race, part of the competition 
for the Magee Cup. was won by Wood i, followed closely by 
Cox ii and Austin. The day was dull, the fields muddy 
and the directions poorly given and taking all things into 
consideration, the time of nine minutes and ten seconds 
was very good. The following were the first eleven to 
cross the line in the order in which they finished: 


1. Wood i Over age

We give a warm welcome to the Masters who have 
joined us this year. Mr. A. H. Humble has returned to 
the staff after nearly four years service in the Army. Mr. 
Humble was a captain in personnel work; he is now in 
charge of the School's guidance programme. 

Mr. Geoffrey Dale served for six years overseas in the 
Army attaining the rank of captain. He is a graduate of 
the University of Toronto and is now in charge of the 
Classics at the School. 

Mr. John Dening was in the Intelligence Corps of the 
British Army for over six years. He is a graduate of the 
University of Liverpool and is teaching French and Spanish. 

Mr. Neil Rhodes served overseas with the Canadian 
Army and was a sergeant instructor for some years. He 
is assisting Mr. Batt in Cadet work and Physical Training.

The Old Boys' Week-end 

We were very fortunate this year in that many of the 
Old Boys from Montreal who would otherwise have been 
unable to be at the School for the Old Boys' week-end, 
were in Toronto for the McGill - Varsity football game, and 
were thus able to stop over at Port Hope on the way home. 

Festivities were officially started Sunday night, when 
a bonfire and singsong was held, at which Tom Wade and 
his accordian as in days of old, were very prominent. Mon- 


day morning, after a late breakfast attended by those old 
boys who had been able to drag themselves from make- 
shift beds in different parts of the School, the annual New 
Boys' race was held, followed by a short and not very 
energetic signal practice by the Old Boys "All Stars". 

After a very substantial and tasty lunch, and another 
short session of all the old School songs and yells, it was 
announced that since an unexpected number of Old Boys 
had turned up, instead of the usual Old Boys vs. First 
Team football game, an inter-house game between the Old 
Boys would be held. 

The teams gave an excellent exhibition of football, 
Bethune winning out perhaps by superior weight and sub- 
stitutes. After tea at the Lodge the Old Boys departed on 
their various ways and the School seemed unusually quiet 
and almost empty.

A superb classical record collection in the alcove off 
the dining hall is available to any Senior School boy at any 

The library was started in the early thirties by Alan 
Sly who gave a dozen odd records. Since he left the 
School in 1933, The Hon. R. C. Matthews and others have 
been kind enough to make repeated contributions, and it 
has multiplied until we now have no less than seven hun- 
dred and fifty records valued at approximately one thou- 
sand dollars. A complete refiling is expected in the near 
future to keep up with the large number of recent dona- 
tions. The variety is large, designed to meet all tastes. 
Sjmtiphonies, operas, excerpts from various works of the 
great masters, down to the semi-classical modernists are 
to be found, played by full orchestras or a single soloist. 

Such a diversified collection is rarely found. Not 
many individuals will invest as much as one thousand dol- 
lars in a record library. We should all endeavour to spend 
an odd hour or two each term browsing around in the music 
library. Though popular music is pleasant, it rarely lives 
through the centuries as these incomparable classics have. 


At any rate, we should all occasionally be able to go to the 
regular Friday night music hours which give us a chance 
to sit still, listen to good music, and think things over for 
a while. 

Learning to appreciate music is essential to a broad 
education. Our music library gives us an opportunity to 
complete that education in our own free time. Such an 
opportunity should not be lost.

Annual Meeting of the Trinity College School 
Ladies' Guild 

Mrs. Britton Osier, President, presided at the Forty- 
Third Annual Meeting of the Ladies' Guild on the after- 
noon of the 14th of May, at the Provost's House, Trinity 
College, Toronto. 

Mrs. Hugh Heaton, the Treasurer, tabled the financial 
statement (audited through the kindness of Mr. H. H. 
Loosemore) and it was noted that $1,086.57 had been spent 
by the Guild in the interests of the School. 

Interesting reports were read from the Port Hope and 
Montreal Branches of the Guild. 

The President reported that the Ladies' Guild had 
been able to donate $400.00 in bursaries in addition to the 
Helen Matthews Somerville Bursary and the Dudley Daw- 
son Bursary. The customary grants were made to the 
library for the purchase of books, and all three branches 
shared in the expenses in framing the photographs of "Old 
Boys" killed on Active Service. 

The resignation of two members of the Executive 
Committee, Mrs. Ernest Howard and Mrs Arthur Cayley, 
along with the retirement of Mrs. Strachan Ince, Mrs 
Ewart Osborne and Mrs. Humphrey Gilbert was noted with 

Mrs. Osier's resignation as President of the Ladies' 
Guild after ten years of service was accepted with regret 


and Mr. Ketchum, the Headmaster, spoke of the great ser- 
vice rendered the School, so graciously and so capably, by 
Mrs. Osier. Mrs. Wotherspoon, President of the Port Hope 
Branch, moved a unanimous motion of appreciation to 
the retiring President. 

The nominating committee presented the following 
slate of officers for 1946-47 which was approved : 
President — Mrs. George Kirkpatrick. 

Vice-Presidents — Mrs. John Langmuir, Mrs. J. H. Gundy. 
Secretary — Mrs. E. B. McPherson. 
Treasurer — Mrs. Hugh Heaton. 
Four New Members to the Committee — Mrs. Lawrence 

Grout, Mrs. Joseph dePencier, Mrs. Harrison Gilmour, 

Mrs. Norman Kelk. 

After the Headmaster, and Mr. Tottenham, Principal 
of the Junior School, had made short addresses, Mrs. Geo. 
Kirkpatrick, newly elected President, moved a vote of 
thanks to the Provost, Dr. Seeley, for allowing the meet- 
ing to be held in Trinity College; it was seconded by Mrs. 
Snowden, and the meeting adjourned for tea. 


One day this fall a car pulled up outside a barber 
shop in down-town Port Hope and a middle-aged man 
stepped out. He entered the shop and was soon in an 
animated discussion with its proprietor. The man was a 
successful insurance agent who had come back to pay his 
respects to his beloved Alma Mater. He was not a resi- 
dent of Port Hope. Why then should he stop at a barber 
shop just to have a talk with its owner? The reason was 
evident, as the man who ran this shop was Charlie Fourt 
who had cut this man's hair some twenty odd years be- 
fore when he was a boy at T.C.S. 

Charlie has been cutting hair for more than twenty 
years though. His career as a barber started forty-six

years ago, and thirty-five have been spent cutting hair at 
the School. Since he has cut on the average twelve heads 
a night, for five nights a week, for about thirty-four weeks 
a year, for thirty-five years, he has given approximately 
seventy-one thousand, four hundred hair-cuts. (Mr. Scott 
could doubtless calculate how many blades of hair were 
severed at T.C.S. by Charlie's sharp? shears!) 

Charlie was bom in Port Hope in 1882 but soon moved 
to Buffalo. He started cutting hair when he was eighteen 
years old, and soon had a job in Peterborough. Back he 
came to his birth-place and cut hair where the Queen's 
Hotel dining room now stands. This was once a large 
barber shop and candy store according to Charlie. 

Possibly his call to the barber-shop may have been 
bom in him, as five of his uncles are barbers, and several 
owned stores in Port Hope. Ever since he was a little boy 
he has been around a barber-shop and his natural inclina- 
tion to trim the heads of the nation was always his aim. 

Many of Canada's top men have borne a Charlie hair 
styling at sometime in their life, and three of T.C.S. 's 
Headmasters, Dr. Rigby, Dr. Orchard and Mr. Ketchum 
have had their hair dressed by Mr. Fourt. As a matter of 
fact Mr. Ketchum was a boy at T.C.S. when first Charlie's 
tools were used to trim his cheveux, but we had better say 
no more. 

Charlie says that he remembers Dr. Bethune, another 
Headmaster of the School, and that when he started to 
cut hair at T.C.S. the present School was not even thought 
of and the fire of 1928 had not destroyed the old buildings. 

The first Charlie hair-cuts were given on a box with 
a chair on top, but about ten years ago the School pro- 
cured through Charlie a new chair. This was a gift for 

Mr. Fourt's daily schedule has been to go to work 
down-town at 9 a.m. and there to stay till 7 p.m. At 7.20 
he would leave for the School on the hill and here he re- 
mained till 9.30 when he returned to his beloved shop to 


sell tobacco for an hour or so. This well-rounded schedule 
would drive many men to exhaustion but not so Charlie! 

Today in his sixty-fourth year Charlie Fourt is as 
robust and happy as ever. He drinks only spring water 
from his own well ("none of that town stuff") and never 
smokes any of his own cigarettes or tobacco. His only 
diversions are gold stocks, reading, and telling stories. His 
presence brings with it the happiness and sunshine of a 
busy successful life in the hairdressing business. 

Charlie says that if he took a trip around the world 
he would know boys in nearly every town of any size he 
stopped at, and we can quite believe it! Many old boys 
stop in each week just to see him, and he will long be re- 
membered by those to whom he gave the skill of his trade, 
and the sunshine of his smile.

HOWARD, E. — It was so long ago when Ernie first enter- 
ed T.C.S.that some of the details of his early life here 
have become lost. However, we were able to find that 
in the Junior School, in the dim and distant past, he was 
a triple captain. This prowess in athletics stayed with 
him; for in the Senior School he proved that he was still 
an outstanding athlete. He won distinction caps in Hoc- 
key, Squash, and Cricket. The hockey team was graced 
with his presence for three years, and he captained it in 
his final year. It will be a long time before we shall 
forget his playing on the Juvenile champion hockey team 
of 1945; his defence work and his rushes the length of 
the ice brought the spectators to their feet time after 
time. He was a stalwart of our rugby backfield last year 
and besides this he was captain of the squash team which 
won the Little Big Four championship last year. Many 
will remember his superlative tennis which won for him 
the senior tennis trophy two years in a row. But that's 
not all because ''Ernst" also played bigside cricket win- 
ing his colours for two seasons. Last summer term he 
was elected captain but unfortunately he was not the 
scholarly type and he had to drop sports to concentrate 
on his senior matric. It obviously succeeded for he is 
now at McMaster. But sports were not the only thing 
in Ernie's life at School. In his last year as co-head 
Prefect he was the steadying influence in the School. 
Seldom perturbed, his good nature won a great many 
friends, for he never discarded that infectious smile. He 
also carried out his duties with great success. He was 
one of the few who could command respect and still re- 
tain popularity. The whole School joins in to thank 
Ernie Howard for turning in a magnificent job as leader 
of our School last year. 


SINCLAIR, E. M.— Sine, small but mighty, left us last 
year after a four year stay which was little short of 
miraculous. As an athlete he was unexcelled. He 
captained the football and swimming teams in his last 
year and for his outstanding work in the former he gain- 
ed the Little Big Four All Star Team and also a distinc- 
tion cap. He was vice-captain of the hockey squad, where 
he also obtained a distinction cap, and he was also vice- 
captain of the cricket team. He won his weight in box- 
ing and was an important member of the track team. 
As a result of all these outstanding achievements he was 
awarded the Jack Langmuir challenge trophy for the 
best all round athlete. It was Sine's fiery never-say- 
die spirit that gained him such achievements. He was a 
scrappy fighter (Ernie Howard never did over-power 
him!) and it was this that gave him the jump on larger 
and heavier athletes. A brief account of Hubie's athle- 
tic prowess is not enough to be said about him. For he 
was more than an exceptional athlete ; he was a leader and 
at the same time a swell guy liked by all. As Head Pre- 
fect he was one of the best and he carried out his duties 
and responsibilities ably and well. Sine was one of the 
most popular boys in the School, for combined with all 
these successes he had a friendly, cheerful manner which 
was seldom far beneath the surface and most of the time 
bubbling over. He was also one of the brainier kind — ^he 
got to Ajax any way — and was an excellent Editor of 
the Record. All in all Sine accomplished more in four 
years than most of us would in eight and it was with 
great sadness that the School said goodbye to Hubie 
Sinclair. A good job well done, Sine. 

McMURRICH, J. R.— Stick ambled into T.C.S. way back 
in '42 with a host of other notables and began to make 
many friends with his engaging, easy-going and unsel- 
fish manner. By his last year "Stick" had reached the 


top in all fields of life here. He was a Prefect, a mem- 
ber of the football squad for two years — a place where 
his unselfishness was shown repeatedly in his handling 
of the ball — a forward for three years on the hockey 
team, where his easy-going nature asserted itself in the 
useful occupation of goal sitting. (He always led the 
scoring we might add.) He was Vice-Captain of Squash 
for two years. Stick wasn't content to take up these 
sports only, but also indulged in a little basketball dur- 
ing his spare time from hockey, and proved of great 
assistance towards the end of the cold weather, when 
hockey activities came to a standstill. He was also a 
good student, though a bit nonchalant at times — and 
could when the going got touch, do very well for himself. 
He has now advanced to a higher level of learning at 
Ajax, and we wish him the best of luck for the future. 

WADE, T. M. — When Tommy came to Bethune House in 
'42 a new era began. With his laughing face and boom- 
ing voice and his accordian he ruled all the informal 
gatherings in the School until he left last year. He will 
long be remembered for his "Bar Harbour Maniacs" and 
his "Zumba" song and even more for his genial good 
nature, and fun-loving disposition. As well as being the 
life of the party, Tom was an athlete. He was a mem- 
ber of the C.O.S.S.A. champions in his first year and in 
his final two years played snap and centre secondary on 
Bigside. He earned his basketball colours for three years 
in a row and in his last year was vice-captain. He never 
could quite figure out cricket enough to get beyond 
Middleside, however. Last year he left at Easter so as 
to devote his time entirely to his work and by these 
efforts squeezed through his senior matric and is now at 
Victoria. Tommy was a Prefect when he left his many 
friends last Easter and we know he will be as popular 
and successful at College as he was at "The School on 
the Hill". 


GREENWOOD, F. M.— Freddy entered Bethune way back 
in the distant past and at once he began to make many 
friends with his quick wit, bright ideas and team spirit. 
Football Freddy was one of the best Middles the team 
has ever had and was in his second and last year on the 
squad he was voted a member of the Little Big Four All 
Star team. In hockey, Fred was our sub-goalie in his 
last year and though he never got a chance to show his 
stuff he was always ready if the emergency ever came. 
Leaving the athletic realm and turning to the academic 
side of life, we find that Fred had quite a brain — when 
he got the urge that is. As a Prefect he carried his 
responsibilities well, and always knew his own mind. 
Freddy is at McGill this year and though we shall miss 
him we know that he cannot help but continue his suc- 
cess there. 

GILBERT, P. H.— Moon came to T.C.S. in the fall term of 
'42 and ever after he continued to amaze the inmates 
with his baby-like voice both on and off the stage, his 
pass receiving in football and his superb stick handling 
in hockey. In football he held down the end position on 
the team for two years and continually inspired the best 
of his teammates by his scintillating runs down the field 
through the thick of the rival defence. In hockey he was 
a star centre on the team for three years who roused the 
spectators more than once with his many rushes towards 
the enemy goal. Moon was a Prefect when he left us 
last year and with his ever-ready smile and hearty laugh 
was one of the best liked boys around School. He also 
was a singer of note — both formally and informally. His 
work was astounding to say the least — in geometry he 
had quite an original mind! Mooner has now passed on 
to other fields of conquest and we all wish him the best 
of luck for the future. 


DECKER, D. A.— '^Dorky Davey Decker with the Dinked 
Knee" was a song last year that was as popular as any 
on the Hit Parade. It seems that the hero of this tender 
ballad played Bigside Rugby and had a bad knee. How- 
ever, this gallant fellow overcame this difficulty to be- 
come the president of "The Fumblers Club", (U.T.S. 
please note). But seriously, Dink Decker was a formid- 
able player for Bigside for two years and added a great 
deal to our backfield. He was also a track and field 
man and in Spring he would don his track shoes or put 
the shot. In '45 he was a stalwart but last year owing 
to his studies (?) he was forced to the sidelines in an 
attempt to snag an elusive Senior Matric. The "Dork" 
rose from the ranks of a senior to Prefect in his last 
year and commanded a great deal of respect in the 
School. Aside from these duties "Dink" found time to 
debate. He was a forceful speaker and represented the 
School in its contests. His debating was not confined 
to the hall, for he was frequently seen in heated argu- 
ment with anyone who cared to oppose him. He had 
various techniques of winning these, all of which resem- 
bled wrestling. But "Dink's" crowning achievement was 
the way he guided Brent House to a victory on Inspection 
Day. He put a great deal of work into training the 
cadets and he was finally rewarded. We feel that we 
have lost a member who was a great asset to the School 
and we wish him the best of success in getting his 
Honour Matric this year. 

GIBSON, J. G.— The hearty "Gibbon" with his mighty 
muscles came to the School in '42 and immediately set 
about to find the gym. He found it alright and remain- 
ed there for a good part of his time at T.C.S. As a re- 
sult, this amazing lad became one of the finest gymnasts 
the School has ever had. He won the gym. competition 
two years in a row and was captain and won a distinc- 


tion cap in his final year. Gib also played football and 
although he never made the first team he was one of 
those dependable yet unknown subs in his final year. He 
was on the swimming team and the Record Staff and 
was also quite a debater. Gib worked hard at his studies 
and obtained surprisingly good marks for one with so 
many extra-curricular activities. We wish him the best 
of luck for the future, and hope he'll visit the School 

PHIPPEN, W. G.— Phip, of motorcycle and toboggan fame, 
breezed into T.C.S. with his mad schemes way back in 
'41, and since then has become one of the more outstand- 
ing personalities in the School. In his last year he v/as 
a House Prefect and a member of the Sixth Form, but 
he was handicapped in his sports by two unfortunate 
occurrences. A bad spill in tobogganing in the winter of 
'45, landed him in the hospital with a broken leg, and 
the consequent lameness prevented him from a sure posi- 
tion on the football team last fall; while a serious nose 
bleed kept him from competing in the gym. competitions 
until last year, when despite this defect, he made the 
first team with ease — a thing he could have done three 
years ago. Phip was also a stalwart member of the 
smoker, though before he left he had taken his smoking 
over to a more privileged place. As Bigside Manager he 
carried a "mean" water bucket; we hope this valuable 
experience will stand him in good stead for the future. 
Bill found peacetime standards at university a touch 
high and consequently he is now a salesman in Toronto. 
May his friendly disposition charm as many buyers as 
it did T.C.S. boys. 

KIRKPATRICK, R. M.— Last year Kirk battled his way 
through a year beset with numerous difficult duties. He 
had always been a tireless worker for the Record Staff 


and in his final year proved to be a capable School News 
Editor. He never received the full credit due for this 
demanding job, but he always managed to complete his 
tasks efficiently. Besides this he managed to squeeze in 
time to look after the debates in the hall. He was on 
the debating staff and also represented the School on its 
debating team. Although not a natural athlete he play- 
ed on Bigside Rugby. His forte was swimming and he 
was Vice-Captain of the j&rst swimming team. Not only 
did he chum the pool with mighty strokes, but he also 
helped and coached the younger boys in their swimming. 
The "Spaniel" also worked like a dog over his studies; 
undoubtedly his Geometry proofs would have astounded 
Euclid himself. Nevertheless he got his Honour Matric. 
Because of his reliability Kirk was made a House Prefect. 
As all good things must come to an end, the School had 
to say goodbye to Kirk and his beard last June. 

BARBER, J. — "Ba Ba", to those who knew him well, was 
a stalwart on both Bigside Soccer and Cricket. For his 
excellent performance in the former he was awarded a 
distinction cap, and in the latter he won the batter's 
prize in his last year for the best average. Jimmy also 
took up squash in his final year and with characteristic 
determination kept plugging away at the game until he 
earned himself a position on the Little Big Four Cham- 
pionship team. Jim, in his first years at T.C.S., gave 
one the impression of being the quiet and reserved type 
but in his last two years he seemed to wander out of 
his shell with a singularly sheepish grin on his face to 
become one of the most popular of the School characters 
(and let me emphasize the word "character"). He left 
us last year a House Prefect and our very best wishes 
go with Jim as he enters the University of Toronto. We 
are sure that he will win many friends wherever he goes. 


MAIN. F. J. — Jerry came to the School back in 1942. It 
was not great physical magnitude that made him a 
standout, but rather that inimitable personality. A 
surprisingly quick wit was soon found under Jerry's 
usually placid expression. In the first two years Jerry 
kept a watchful eye on the Lodge dorm, and in this 
capacity he showed many signs of responsibility and 
character which later were the main reasons for his pro- 
motions in the School. An inside on Middleside in his 
last year, Jerry was a tower of strength on that team's 
line. He was also a star backstroker on the swimming 
team. Outstanding success crowned Jerry's efforts in 
the classroom and also as President of the Political 
Science Club. Jerry was the author of many fine articles 
in the "Record". A House Prefect in his last year, Jerry 
is now sojourning at Princeton and we wish him the very 
best of luck there. 

AUSTIN. A. M. — ^Bunny came to the School in '43 with 
a rather amazing and extensive vocabulary and left 
last June with it considerably increased. While acquir- 
ing this questionable asset he also distinguished him- 
self in many other departments. A student of no small 
worth, he regularly inhabited the top forms and, owing 
to these efforts, is now comfortably installed at Vic- 
toria College in Toronto. He did not, however, tire him- 
self so much at his studies that he had no energy left for 
anything else. Indeed his outstanding characteristic 
seemed to be his energy especially when it applied to 
running. To see Mac walking any distance was a rare 
spectacle. This passion for running was finally turned 
into something useful when in his last year he ran — 
and won — the Oxford Cup in the best time since the 
record was set. For this outstanding performance he 
was awarded a distinction cap and none was merited 
more than his. Bun was also a football enthusiast and 


was an excellent inside on the first team last year. He 
ended an extensive hockey career on the celebrated 
juvenile team and led that team in penalties. All in all 
Bunny's life here was worthy of the highest praise and 
in justification of this he was made a House Prefect in 
his final year. May he run through college as success- 
fully as he did here! ! 

FISHER. G. N.— Fish struggled up the hill leading to 
T.C.S. in 1943 and after squeezing through the doors of 
Brent, he settled down to practise the art of taking life 
easy while at the same time obtaining good marks. The 
Imperturbable Falstaff with his "Oh that's so easy" cer- 
tainly accomplished this for not only was he always in 
the top forms while here, but he also in his last year 
was acclaimed co-winner with "Wilier" Toole for the 
Chancellor's Prize for Head Boy. Fish, however, didn't 
restrict himself to work only, for he was a stalwart — 
those whom he hit know that — member of both the 
football and hockey teams while at the same time being 
"Johnny on the spot" when anything unpredictable hap- 
pened in his vicinity. This capability coupled with his 
quiet humour made him one of the most popular boys in 
the School, and earned him the promotion to House Pre- 
fect. It is certain that we shall all miss him, but we 
can, in the words of the man himself, console ourselves 
with the thought that T.C.S. 's loss is McGill's gain. May 
he keep up his success in his activities in future years. 

TOOLE, W. J. A.— This cowboy rode up the Port Hope 
hill for the first time in September of 1943 and settled 
firmly into the life of T.C.S. Even though he came 
from the small cow-town of Calgary, Bill was one of the 
best athletes and one of the "brighter" boys in the 
School. He was a "Little Big Four" All Star end in 
football and won a distinction cap for his work as cap- 


tain of basketball. Wilier was also renowned for his 
fine (?) voice, heard in the chorus of "The Pirates of 
Penzance" and also to a lesser extent in the choir. Willie 
was a senior in the sixth form in his last year, and he 
was co-winner of the Chancellor's Prize for Head Boy. 
Bethune's bottom flat certainly misses that "boy from 
the Golden west" and wishes him luck at the University 
of Alberta. 

LAMBERT, K. C— Our "Teddy Bear" waddled into Be- 
thune House in the fall term of '43 and immediately 
settled down to make the best of his stay during his so- 
journ here. Ken was a versatile lad in all ways of life, 
winning in recognition of this the 2nd Year Challenge 
Trophy — awarded to the boy who seems to have fitted 
himself best into the life of T.C.S. during his second 
year — and also a promotion to senior in his last year. 
He was a star member of both the hockey and gym. 
squads, being elected Vice-Captain of the latter. He was 
a member for two successive years of both Bigside Foot- 
ball and Cricket. Besides these major activities he was 
a very valuable asset to both the swimming and track 
during his three years here. However, it isn't enough 
to reel off his athletic successes for K. C. was also noted 
for his studies — a brain you know — and above all for his 
stylish dress. The moustache (?) went so well with 
those blue pants! Ken has now passed on to Queen's 
University where he hopes to study Medicine, and al- 
though he will be greatly missed this year, we certainly 
wish him the best of luck. And what's more you'll be 
a man, my son. 

MACDONALD, B. A.— "Moose" slouched into Bethune 
House in the fall of '43 as a tall, thin new boy and be- 
came a great source of worry to both masters and privi- 
leges. Three years later he left T.C.S. a senior with two 


first team colours and a scholarship. When he left he was 
still the playful, fun-loving, easy-going boy he was when 
he came but he had become also popular and successful 
in all his undertakings. He was a big middle on the foot- 
ball team and a star centre on the hockey squad and in 
both earned first team colours. Although he wielded a 
wicked bat in cricket and was on the first squad he was 
able to get Middleside colours only. Bruce's extra- 
curricular activities included bridge, telling jokes and 
finding ways to make life pleasant (?) for Hawke! In 
spite of all these he remained well-liked with his cheer- 
ful face and slow drawl seldom failing to produce a 
laugh. He is going to Queens this year to follow in his 
brother's footsteps and we hope he'll find the life as 
rosy as he had hoped! 

HARDAKER, J. S.— Johnny came to T.C.S. five years ago 
and in his own quiet and unpretentious way settled 
quickly down into School life. However, this reserve on 
his part prevented many from knowing him well and it 
wasn't till his last year, that most of us came to know 
him as he really was — a level headed, good-natured fel- 
low. He did what few would ever do in a school where 
athletics mean so much, he gave up sports to concentrate 
on the one weak link in his accomplishments — his studies. 
Consequently he passed by the chance to star in both 
cricket and hockey, in order to better his standing in 
work. To pass away his spare time he entered into the 
"smoker" where he became in his last year the President 
of this noble institution. Johnny also rose to the rank 
of senior in the same year, and in this capacity he be- 
came even better known by all of us. When he said 
goodbye last year he left behind a gap which will be 
hard to fill. Adios Amigo. Bueno suerte! 


BARROW, F. A.— Three cheers for Quebec! Tony and 
his host of "descriptive" French adjectives invaded the 
School in September '43. During his three years with 
us, his self-invented board hockey game gave many of 
his chums hours of relaxation (?) and enjoyment. Gaspe 
played soccer and hockey, but we remember him best as 
a fine runner. Despite a handicap of flat feet, he was 
determined to be a runner like his father, who won the 
Oxford Cup and other races here in 1922. In his new- 
boy year Tony finished second in the new boys' race and 
seventh in the Oxford Cup race. When he said good- 
bye to us as a senior last June, Tony left a trail behind 
him seldom equalled in the annals of racing at T.C.S. 
Last spring he won the senior 220, 440, 880, and mile 
run and finished second in the 100 yards at the School 
meet, thereby earning the only first team track colour 
, in the School. For two years in a row he streaked across 
the finish line at the Little Big Four meet to win the 
mile run. Last fall he finished third in the Oxford Cup 
.... Si Boire ! ! — an enviable record.

There is no one in the world of whom I am more afraid 
than Fear. I have often attempted to discover his hide- 
out when I am strong enough to destroy him; but he is 
evasive, and comes out of hiding only when I am weak and 
helpless. For Fear is a bully and a coward, striking those 
who are weakest and most ignorant, and evading the 
strong and intelligent. 

I cannot remember when first he attacked me, nor 
how often I have come face to face with him; but I do re- 
member my two worst struggles against him. They are 
easy to remember because they occurred under contrasting 

When I was six years of age, my mother took me to 
see the Exhibition in Toronto for the first time. It was a 
tremendous adventure for me, and I was dazed by the 
colour and clamour of the merry-go-round, roller-coaster, 
ferris-wheels, and sideshows, but, above all, by the jostling, 
laughing, rushing crowds. This was a new world of dreams 
for me, and I was carried away beyond description by the 
thrill of the experience. Mother had great difficulty hold- 
ing me by the hand, for I was forever trying to run to 
inspect and to touch some new and interesting object, or 
to shout at and imitate some amusing performer. "We had 
wandered about for some time when we decided to stop for 


a rest on a park bench. It was about noon, and our car 
was only a short distance away, so mother parked me on 
the bench with specific orders to remain there until she re- 
turned with the picnic lunch that we had packed the night 
before. She had not been gone two minutes when along 
came a magnificent band of Scottish pipers. Although I 
remembered mother's strict orders, and foresaw the 
paddling that I would surely receive, I felt that this was 
an opportunity that I should never again be given. With 
a bound I was off the bench, and on the heels of those 
colourful pipers. A tremendous crowd swept me along 
with the band, and I was bursting with the joy of the 
spritely music, and dancing along to the rhythm of their 
marching feet. Everyone around me seemed joyful and 
happy, and the spirit of careless joviality filled me with 

And then, my dream bubble burst. All at once the 
band entered a large building and disappeared, just as the 
Pied Piper had vanished into a magic mountainside. The 
music was gone, the marching rhythm was gone, and the 
colour and clamor of the crowd died out and vanished. 
I found myself alone and very lonely. Looking around. I 
did not recognize my surroundings, nor could I remember 
which way the band had come — I was lost. The crowd be- 
came a terrible, endless mass of beasts; the buildings be- 
came huge mountains that shut me in; the din about me 
became a mocking, moaning thunder. Panic seized me. 
I began to run about and to cry out to anyone to help me. 
I must have been a pitiful sight, for over and over again 
I tripped in my wild haste and scraped my knees and 
elbows. But no one seemed to notice me or, as far as I 
could see, care about me. Fear had a very firm grip on 
me, and I was no match for him. I fell on the sidewalk 
and cried my eyes out. 

I have no idea how long it was before I felt myself 
lifted into the air by strong arms. Through my tears I 
saw before me the kindly face of a policeman. He told me 


that he would soon find "my mummy", and took me to a 
building where I was given an ice cream cone and a book 
of fairy tales. After a short while, mother arrived to find 
me happily licking my cone and turning the pages of my 
book, which was upside down. She gave me a warm kiss 
and a severe scolding, and, thanking the policeman, set off 
for home, undoubtedly with plans for a suitable punish- 


My second and most terrifying experience happened 
three years later during my summer vacation among the 
beautiful islands of Georgian Bay. Father had rented a 
small cottage on a little island, and we were very happily 

Late one afternoon I collected my fishing tackle and 
set out in our rowboat to find some new and fi'uitful fish- 
ing ground. It was a beautiful day for fishing. Light 
refreshing showers had cleansed the mossy carpet of the 
rocks, and now the sun was flashing from the glistening 
face of the bald, rugged shoreline, and streaking across 
the shivering surface of the bay. A rainbow leaned over 
me in a lazy, graceful arc. I was disappointed that I was 
not a painter or a poet, for the scene was one of utter 
peace and beauty. There was not a sign of civilization 
within my sight; the whole earth was mine for those few 
hours. Coming upon a shoal, I cast my line, removed my 
shirt, and lay back on a cushion to drink in the warmth 
of the sun. My boat drifted lazily along as I lay back and 
forgot all my worldly cares. The sun made me shut my 
eyes, and soon I was lost in happy dreams. 

When I regained consciousness, my boat was grazing 
against the rocky shoreline of some alien cove. I had not 
the slightest notion where I was. Coming to my senses 
with a start, I peered about me inquisitively. All at once 
I noticed that the sun was no longer in sight; the deep 
golden haze of the summer sunset warned me that dark- 
ness was slowly but steadily approaching. Gathering in 


my line, and donning my shirt, I headed out of the cove 
in hopes of recognizing my surroundings from the open 
lake. The water in the bay was choppy and unfriendly, 
and I did not recognize the surrounding islands. Remem- 
bering that I had started out northward from our cottage, 
I headed southward, rowing with frantic energy. Soon it 
became obvious that darkness would overtake me, and as 
this realization dawned on me, the long arms of Fear be- 
gan to stretch out to clutch me. The chilly breeze of the 
August evening made my teeth chatter. The expanse of 
water around me spread away and away, and although I 
rowed with all my might, I did not seem to be making any 
progress. A sharp, powerful wind spread across the even- 
ing sky a heavy blanket of black clouds, and soon not a 
single star remained to give me company. A few hours 
ago a peaceful world had been all mine — now I was its 
slave, and it was transformed to an ugly, merciless master. 
I began to cry out. but the only answer I received was the 
hollow echo of my feeble voice from the rocky shore across 
the bay. Sick with hunger and fatigue, I thought of land- 
ing on an island, but the prospect of wild animals and 
snakes denied me even this refuge. 

Suddenly the sky was alight as if a switch had been 
pressed. The light disappeared as fast as it had come, 
and the next moment a terrible crash resounded across the 
water. It was the prelude to one of the August lightning 
storms for which Georgian Bay is famous. These freak 
storms often occur when least expected, lasting sometimes 
for several hours, sometimes for just a few moments. Sel- 
dom are they accompanied by rain. The whole of the sky 
is ablaze like daylight for a fraction of a second ; then pitch 
darkness returns in the wink of an eye. Occasionally the 
clouds spit out long yellow knives of lightning to destroy 
some beautiful pine, or to start a fire. The weird spectacle 
mspired in me every emotion from wonder to fear. I lost 
even the strength to row, and crouched helplessly in that 
open boat praying for help. It seemed an eternity before 


I detected between the crash of thunder and roaring wind 
a faint but continuous ringing. Snatching up the oars 
again, I headed in the direction from which the ringing 
came. New energy and strength was given me by this 
familiar sound. It was too dark to recognize my surround- 
ings, but when lightning flashed above, I could in that 
second see a long way ahead. I circled several small islands, 
praying all the time that the ringing would not cease, and 
suddenly found myself again in our own little bay. Far 
across the water I could see the family standing on the 
rock above the cottage with several lanterns and flash- 
lights, and ringing our cowbell. They soon heard my 
shouts, and scrambling down to the water's edge, made a 
very welcome reception party. You can be sure that it 
was many days before I again ventured away from our 

bay alone 

Looking back on these two incidents, I have tried to 
discover why I was so afraid when there was really little 
real danger, why Fear made my imagination run away 
with me, and why I lost my self-control and common sense. 
The obvious answer seems to be that Fear's most power- 
ful ally is Ignorance, and his most powerful enemy, In- 
telligence. If we would try to understand and analyze 
the situation fully at a time when we would ordinarily be- 
come afraid, and if we could stop to use our heads rather 
than lose them, we could always defeat Fear no matter 
how trying the circumstances, nor how numerous his allies.

The day of the renowned Aztec Penance festival had 
arrived. We were of the few white people ever to witness 
this example of religious fervor, and as it was, we who 
know Mexico hardly expected to see an example of such 
ancient rituals performed so near the modem City of 


The ceremony was to be held in an old Spanish church 
in a very peaceful setting up in the mountains, about thirty 
miles from Mexico City. 

It is a festival which has come down from the days 
preceding the conquest of Mexico by Hernan Cortes, which, 
since the advent of Christianity in these regions, has be- 
come slightly more moderate in its pagan frenzy. 

The central points of interest are the poor people who, 
in their simple and misguided faith, have prayed to God 
to help them in any tribulation which may have beset 
them, such as illness, death, or injury. In their prayers 
they promise God a penance of self-sacrifice if their 
prayers are fulfilled. So the people, as payment, put them- 
selves through an excruciatingly painful self-sacrifice, 
which is illustrative of the failure of the Christian mis- 
sionaries in this region. 

This penance is usually the same. The penitents go 
blindfolded from the highway to the church whence they 
crawl on their bare knees, accompanied by friends who 
spread their coats or shirts in their paths as they go. Con- 
sidering the character of the volcanic rock found in these 
regions, one can well imagine the condition of their knees 
after this ordeal. Dancing around these people come the 
Aztec priests and helpers, dressed up in their traditional 
cloaks and caps and exotic feather head-dresses, which are 
a glorious blaze of colour. These clothes are examples of 
gorgeous bead work and beautiful patterns of colour, which 
have been passed down for generations. 

When the penitents and their followers finally reach 
the church, they come before the Altar for a blessing. 
When that is over the town people take a tremendous 
white, wooden cross into the church to be blessed. After 
a long service of incantations and incense burning it is 
brought out to the church yard. The people now deck it 
with flowers and stick it upright in front of the church 


At this point we lose all sight of Christianity, and the 
service breaks forth into a bedlam of Aztec rituals and 
dances. The participants now dance frantically around the 
cross, playing a variety of home-made instruments. Every 
now and then the music and chanting suddenly stops, and 
they all move in an ever narrowing circle towards the 
cross to perform some intricate and detailed part of the 
ritual. Then as suddenly as it stopped all hell breaks 
loose again. This goes on steadily for five days and nights 
with fifteen minutes rest in every hour. The colours are 
beautiful — the colourful costumes worn by the peasants 
mingled with the colours of the ancient Aztec ceremonial 
robes, giving the service an atmosphere of exotic iridescent 

To stand aside and watch such a ceremony with fur- 
tive glances cast at you by the people is hardly comfort- 
able. The very fervor with which the service is conducted, 
fills one with horror and misgiving, the horror often verg- 
ing on pity. It must be a truly horrible sight to see those 
devils from a long past era dancing all through the night 
around a cross in a church yard by firelight, and listening 
to their incantations piercing the shadows of the night. 
Though we were invited, we respectfully but firmly declined 
the invitation to stay. We had seen enough.

He waited until a shrill gust of wind tore past his 
cabin and again set his mind to his problem. The strap 
that had held three of his strongest huskies had somehow 
parted as the night closed in. He knew it would be futile 
to try to find them in the blizzard once night had come. 
He realized, crest-fallen, that storms of this sort sometimes 
took many days to pass on south. His cabin was at the 
edge of the timberline so he had plenty of fuel, and he had 
enough food to last a week, but it was not that that wor- 


lied him. With his team weakened as it was, it would be 
impossible to bring his pelts through the great wastes east 
of the Yellowknife down to the post on the Great Slave 
Lake. He pressed his face against the small pane of glass 
that was the only window in the cabin. Great driving 
sheets of snow flew through the beam of light coming from 
the window and dashed against the thick walls. His tired 
body instinctively thrust the problem aside, and before the 
fire had died, Pierre was asleep. 

In the morning the blizzard howled over the great 
white world as strongly as it had done in the darkness the 
night before. Pierre decided that he must above all, con- 
sider his dogs. As he stepped outside his cabin the storm 
bit into his face, and to see at all he had to squint. He knew 
the huskies would have followed the edge of the forest to 
gain protection from the blizzard. He had not walked a 
mile when he heard a noise above the screeching of the 
wind. Pausing to throw back his hood he heard it again. 
It was the howl of a timber wolf. Before he had put his 
hood on there came an answer from the north. As he 
turned back, not a little apprehensively, towards his cabin, 
he knew what had happened to his dogs. Either they had 
turned wild or had fallen prey to their more powerful 

Pierre was no coward, but he knew enough of wolves 
to have a very genuine fear of them. These were the 
thoughts that went through his mind as he fed the rest of 
his team and chopped some wood. Even while he silently 
fretted the night away inside his cabin, he found himself 
listening for the dread call to raise itself eerily above the 
storm. He only heard it once, but it involuntarily started 
his imagination roving. He could see, now, in his mind's 
eye, the long grey shadows running silent and dreadful 
over the snow. He could see them running through the 
trees, through the great swirls of snow thrown by the 
storm. The crackling of the fire brought him back with 
a start to the warmth and safety of his cabin. 


He knew men had been driven mad by listening to 
their fears, and yet his thoughts would not turn away from 
the dangers that faced him. K anyone were out on a night 
like this, he would not stand much of a chance. For if he 
stopped for a rest and fell asleep the storm would cover 
him and, frozen, he would die unnoticed in the northern 
wastes. Pierre would have hated to go out that door, for 
mixed with his material fears was superstition, and when 
he went out at night he was afraid to look at the black- 
ness that stretched back from the trunks of the trees near- 

Suddenly he remember his axe! He had forgotten it 
when he had come in. If the blizzard had covered it up 
.... Without a second thought he opened the door and 
ran knee-deep into the drifts. Momentarily blinded, he did 
not realize his mistake until he heard the heavy door slam. 
It had automatically locked, and the key was in his parka 
inside. The door had been made to stand the punishment 
of a northern winter, and the great logs would not budge 
for all his frantic pounding. Once outside the cabin, his 
fears had closed in on him, and it was some seconds before 
he thought of his axe. If he could only find it! There, 
clad only in his shirt, he began groping through the snow 
where he thought he had left the axe. He did not know 
that his fingers were already too cold to feel it even if he 
had located it. 

Desperate, he ran aroimd to the window and tried to 
raise himself. He was weak and his arms were numb. He 
thrust one hand through the glass and did not notice he 
had cut it deeply in several places. Pierre suddenly felt 
very sleepy, and the strong beam of light from the open- 
ing only dimly reached his brain. He was so tired he had 
to rest a while. His fingers no longer clawed at the logs, 
but slipped senselessly over the slippery surface. Pierre 
was so sleepy that without any deliberation he stumbled a 
few steps, and sank into the drifts. Soon his body was 
covered, and the blizzard roared undisturbed over the great 
flat wilderness. 


The thaw in the spring found a half-breed checking 
his traps along the banks of the Yellowknife. One day he 
came upon a trapper's cabin. To his surprise he saw the 
body of a man lying only a few paces from the window. On 
emptying his pockets he found a chain of keys, one of 
which opened the door of the cabin. The half-breed, 
accustomed to the whims of nature in the great north, 
stood mystified at the edge of the timberline for a long 

while. — G.B.T., Form VIA. 


One night about a hundred years ago, a young man 
fell asleep after a tiring day of work. He had been labour- 
ing on his invention, and it now lacked only one detail; 
that of connecting the needle with the thread. For his in- 
vention was no other than the common sev/ing-machine, 
and the inventor — Elias Howe! During that night he had 
a strange and significant dream. He was in a remarkable 
land and had been captured by an even more remarkable 
people; he was on trial before the king of the land, and the 
verdict had been guilty, whereupon the king had ordered 
his immediate execution. At once four huge guards ap- 
peared, armed with sharp spears, each having a strange 
hole through the pointed end. They approached him with 
obvious intent of running him through, and at this point, 
the inventor awoke! But he did not forget the detail of 
the spear, and soon, by adding the thread to the pointed 
end of the needle, his invention was complete and its suc- 
cess tremendous. 

Now this little story of how a dream caused the suc- 
cess of a man in life, though uncommon, leads one to be- 
lieve that perhaps there is more in a dream than one would 
think off-hand. Take for example, the word dream itself. 
It can be traced back to a root meaning joy. Is it not then 
probable that the condition of life in the so-called carefree 
middle ages had left its mark in the type of dreams which 
the people at that time had? 


Dreaming, as most people know, originates in the sub- 
conscious mind which remains "awake" when the conscious 
one is asleep. What is more commonly not realized though, 
is the fact that the sub-conscious stores up everything 
which a person has noted at one time or another during his 
life. Thus often in dreams, facts appear which would 
otherwise have remained forgotten in the dreamer's mind. 
This property sometimes leads to strange circumstances. 
For instance, there is the story of a man on trial for mur- 
der a few years ago. The witness could not recall a salient 
fact which could save the life of the accused. The trial 
being long and drawn out though, after a few hours the 
witness fell into a light slumber in the court. A few 
minutes later he awoke; he had had a dream, his sub- 
conscious mind had remembered the fact and, as a result 
the accused was saved. 

The above example leads to another speculation. Is 
there any connection between the condition of the body 
and the type of dream? Actually, this has been found to 
be true. Amusingly enough, a person sleeping with no 
blankets over his body, would quite likely have a dream 
connected with flying; similarly, a person asleep with barn 
yard odours in his nostrils, might dream of animals. 
Dreams also cause reactions in the dreamer. For example, 
in the case of a dog, dreaming of the hunt, an observer 
will notice the animal paw the ground, grunt, (in the dream 
it would be a bark) and lick his chops, as if in sub-con- 
scious anticipation of his prey. 

An inquiring mind might ask the question, "What is 
the purpose of the dream? It is said that everything has 
a purpose, yet I fail to see any connection with the state 
of dreaming." The answer to this question has been 
sought for, yet it, like many other unknown facts con- 
nected with that strange, almost supernatural function of 
the mind, ever remains a mystery. A mystery as common 
as the very life, yet inexplicable as death itself!

Lt.-Col. Kenlis L. Stevenson 

(We print the following, believing it to be of much 
archaeological value, with the kind permission of Mrs. P. 
H. Douglas to whom the late Lt. Col. Stevenson gave these 
details of his discovery.) 

In November, 1921, I had obtained leave from my 
military duties in Baghdad, and was paying a visit to 
Major Jeffries, the political officer at Diwaniyah on the 
Euphrates, who was a friend of mine. One day, while 
there, an Arab brought in a cone-shaped, cuneiform tablet 
and offered it to Major Jeffries. The latter was not par- 
ticularly interested in Archaeology, but, knowing that I 
was,he passed it on to me. After some work I identified 
it as having obviously come originally from the site of 

Now I knew that professional archaeologists had 
sought this site in vain for many years. Many ingenious 
theories as to its position had been advanced, but, as it 
turned out, these were all very wide of the mark. So I 
made a point of returning to Diwaniyah, and after some 
delay, Major Jeffries once again produced the Arab, whom 
he knew well. This man informed me that he had dug it 
up from a mound called "Bahriyat", the most eastern of 
a clump of mounds named by the Arabs "Tel Bahri". 

There was no mention of the mound in the Ordnance 
Survey map of the district, but Major Jeffries unearthed 
an old sketch map, made by the R. E. during the war, and 
there it was, under its correct name. It lies some seven- 
teen miles south east of Diwaniyah. 

Through pressure of military work and other causes 
I was prevented from ever reaching the mound myself; 
but Professor Langdon of Oxford, to whom I reported the 
discovery on my return to England in 1922, agreed to visit 
it when out with the Oxford expedition, excavating at 
Kish. This he did in due course, and verified the identi- 


A description of the mound may be found in the 
Encyclopaedia Britannica. It lies in thirty-one degrees, 
fifty-one minutes North and forty-five degrees, seventeen 
minutes East. The slight excavation carried out by Lang- 
don showed that the site had been re-occupied in Neo 

Babylonian times. 


A Brief History of Isiii 

The history of Isin is only vaguely known, for the 
mound itself has never been excavated, and one can only 
piece it together in a general way by endeavouring to syn- 
chronize tablets that have been found in other mounds. 
Indeed there is an historical "lacuna" of about two hundred 
years, involving the rise of Babylon, which will only be 
filled when the important mound of Tel Bahri, the site of 
Isin, has been properly excavated. Its dominion existed 
for two hundred and twenty-five years, commencing 2357 
B.C. and followed immediately after the fall of the third 
dynasty of Ur. 

For some two millenniums the struggle for supremacy 
had been waged between the Sumerian cities of the South 
and the Semitic, or Akkadian, cities of the North, the 
dominion oscillating continually from one to the other, and 
the conflict resulted in the evolution of a very great civiliza- 
tion. The struggle between the two came to an end with 
the third, and greatest, Dynasty of Ur .... a Sumerian 
city; and after its fall the final contest for sovereignty of 
the country was waged between other nations that had 
entered on the scene, until Babylon won and retained the 
hegemony, off and on, for nearly two thousand years. 

During the reign of Gimilsin, the fourth king of this 
Ur dynasty, one of the periodic movements of Western 
peoples down the Euphrates was commencing. The Amori- 
tes. probably in small parties, were making constant raids 
into the fertile plain between the two rivers; while at the 
same time the Elamites, from the uplands of Iran in the 
East, were giving him constant anxiety. He built a great 


wall, called Murik-Tidnim (the Wall of the West), as a 
defence against Amorite raids. He also conducted expedi- 
tions into Elam, and seems to have temporarily subdued 
the country, for a brick of his has been found at Susa. 

His son, Ibi-sin, was the last king of the dynasty, and 
reigned for twenty-five years. Isin is frequently men- 
tioned about this period as being subject to Ur, but the 
city appears to be one of late foundation. Ibi-sin also sent 
one or more expeditions into Elam; but in his twenty-fifth 
year the Elamites invaded the country, conquered Ur, and 
carried Ibi-sin himself away captive. This closed the 
dynasty of Ur. Isin probably suffered the same fate. 

The revival of power after the retirement of the 
Elamites is marked by the rise of a new dynasty at Isin, 
largely Semitic in its complexion, although the city itself 
was Sumerian. Ishbi-Urra, the first king, is called "the 
man from Mari", a city high up the Euphrates where 
excavation has recently been proceeding; and he seems to 
have been the strongest man of action left in Sumer and 
Akkad, for he established Isin in its sovereignty over the 
whole coimtry. An omen text speaks of him as "a king 
without rivals". His line lasted for ninety-four years, the 
fifth and last of his descendants being Libit-Ishtar, the 
king of the accompanying tablet. 

The latter reigned only eleven years, and, as far as 
one can gather, it was during his reign that there was a 
great movement southward o f an Amorite horde, who 
settled in Babylon, and began to make it a powerful city. 
Babylon, however, remained subject to Isin. In the time 
of Libit-Ishtar, or on his death, Ur appears to have thrown 
off the yoke of Isin, and, combined with Larsa, formed a 
separate kingdom. At this time Isin must have tem- 
porarily ceased to be capital of the country. 

Ur-Ninib, who succeeded Libit-Ishtar, does not appear 
to have been related to the latter, but whether an usurper 
or not we do not know. He reigned twenty-eight years 
and seems to have won back the sovereignty of Isin. 


Ten kings reigned in Isin after Ur-Ninib, and covered 
a period of a hundred years; but conditions in the city 
must have been occasionally very unsettled, for several of 
them are credited with very short periods on the thrones, 
and few of them seem to have had any relationship to 
their predecessors. One king nominated his gardener as 
his successor, and though his accession was vigorously 
disputed, when he did seize the throne his reign lasted for 
twenty-four years. 

In the reign of Sin-Magir, the penultimate king of the 
dynasty, Babylon is mentioned as still subject to Isin, but 
Ur seems to have again become independent, and a more 
or less independent dynasty of Larsa had been in existence 
for an indefinite period. 

The last king, Danick-Ilisha reigned twenty-three 
years, and it was during his reign that troubles in Sumer 
and Akkad came to a head. The power of Isin was waning, 
and both Babylon, and the Elamites were becoming more 
aggressive. Isin was captured by Sin-Muballit, the king 
of Babylon, in his seventeenth year; and though Damik- 
Hishu still remained on the throne, it was only as a vassal 
of Babylon. 

At the same time Kudur-mabug, the king of Elam, 
overran the south country of Sumer and founded the Ela- 
mite dynasty of Larsa, putting his sons successively on the 

Finally Isin was captured and sacked by Rim-sin, the 
king of Larsa, and the Isin Dynasty came to an end. This 
was probably during the reign of Hammurabi, the son of 

Two antagonists were left to fight for the sup- 
remacy in Sumer and Akkad — Hammurabi, the Amorite 
king of Babylon, and Rim-Sin, the Elamite king of Larsa. 
The issue was finally decided in favour of Hammurabi, and 
Babylon obtained the sovereignty of the land for the first 
time in history. 



The influence of Isin, however, still continued; for it 
had established the religious sanctity of the Sumerian 
tongue upon the somewhat rude Amorites, so that Sum- 
erian continued to be the priestly language for many cen- 
turies to come. It is this fact that makes excavation at 
Tel Bahri such an important matter, for there must be 
many priceless documents of extreme religious and his- 
torical importance buried under the mound. Isin was the 
last repository of Sumerian lore.

(With apologies to Sir A. Sullivan and Sir W. S. Gilbert) 

Seated one night at my homework 

I was weary and ill at ease; 

And my fingers tinkered idly 

With ruler and compasses. 

I knew not what I was drawing, 

For the lines were a jumbled maze; 

But I drew the chord of a circle 

I'd been trying to draw for days. » 

It showed me every detail 

Of the proof I had tried to find, 

When the bell for the end of study 

Snatched the idea from my mind. 

I looked in every textbook 

And I thought till my head was sore, 

But the chord that solved the problem 

Is lost for evermore.

An imposing figure emerges from the lofty red brick 
building. He pauses for a moment on the doorstep to 
light a cigarette with hands that appear strong and steady. 


Amidst a cloud of smoke he flicks away the match with a 
certain off -handedness one cannot help but notice. Upon 
closer inspection we find him to be a well-built fellow, 
dressed in a pin-striped black suit, which brings out, even 
to a further extent, the lines of his well-moulded body. A 
neatly styled, gray felt hat is pulled over his bespectacled 
eyes which have a certain look of hardness about them. 
An easy smile plays on his lips. Raising himself up to his 
full stature he walks majestically around the comer of the 
building and narrowly avoids bumping into another, some- 
what shorter man. He evidently knows the fellow for 
they stop to converse in low tones. The accent of the 
first man attracts our attention and although we imme- 
diately place it as foreign, it is an accent we have never 
heard before and we are somewhat baffled by it. This is 
forgotten, however, as the black suited man moves on. Up- 
on rounding another comer, he stops before a car, the 
latest thing in automobile manufacture. It is a low. sleek 
machine, styled in a light gray that shines brilliantly in 
the afternoon sun. With white-walled tires and perfect 
modelling, the car fits in with the precise and neat appear- 
ance of its owner who is standing before it. Looking 
about him with a self-possessed air, he opens the driver's 
door and hops lightly behind the wheel. The door shuts 
with but a slight click and before we are aware of the 
fact, the machine has pulled silently and effortlessly away 
from the curb. Gathering momentum as the well treaded 
tires bite into the gravel of the road, the sleek auto leaps 
ahead like some lithe jungle cat, eager on its prey. Down 
a lane bordered by tall elms and giant oaks it proceeds and 
as it passes, every one turns to look, and Major Batt waves 
a black sleeved arm to the boys on the Middleside field.

With the return to School for the first term the 
thoughts of most boys turn to the playing fields. There 
every afternoon for two months will be seen almost two 
hundred boys either rushing madly after a round ball 
vainlj' endeavouring to put either one or sometimes both 
of their feet through it, or doing their best to permanently 
maim their opponent (on the field) with bone crushing 

Even though soccer has developed into one of the main 
sports of the School, rugby still maintains its place as the 
major sport of the season. One of the principal reasons 
for this is that the schedule of the first football team con- 
tains three games which invariably wind up the season. 
These games are against other traditional rivals: Bishop 
Ridley College, St. Andrew's College and Upper Canada Col- 
lege who with T.C.S. form the Little Big Four. The Little 
Big Four League besides enabling the members of the 
teams to make new acquaintances from other schools, pro- 
vides the best Senior Secondary School football in the 

Bishop Ridley College who have become our foremost 
rivals have maintained a decided supremacy in carrying 
off Little Big Four titles. This may or may not be due to 


their practice of playing only twelve men in each game, 
and as long as Dr. Griffiths coaches B.R.C., arguments 
about this point will continue without ever reaching a 
satisfactory conclusion. But there can be no doubt about 
the fact that Ridley is always regarded as the team to 
beat which is a very great compliment to them. 

St. Andrew's football teams blow hot and cold; one 
year they will have a big fast team which will carry off 
the title but the next year they will fail miserably. 

Upper Canada have lately had teams below their usual 
standard but this year they are said to have a good squad. 
U.C.C. can always be counted on to provide stiff competi- 
tion for any team. 

We now arrive at the team which is closest to the 
hearts of most people who will read this article. In foot- 
ball as in most other sports T.C.S. is regarded as the 
"dark horse". No doubt our location, "way out in the 
wilderness" has something to do with this but mostly it is 
because Trinity has never failed to field a fighting team. 

The Little Big Four season opens on October 19 with 
T.C.S. at home to U.C.C, while B.R.C. plays host to S.A.C. 
Every person who has gone to see a Little Big Four foot- 
ball game has gone to see the hard fast type of football 
which has been produced by the spirited rivalry between 
these teams. There is no reason why this year should be an 
exception in the brand of football displayed and we look 
forward to seeing more spectators, particularly Old Boys 
of the School, cheering the team on to victory.

At Port Hope, September 21: Won 13-12 

In their first game of the season the First team de- 
feated Peterborough 13-12 in a very mediocre game. Be- 
hind 13-7, Peterborough scored a last minute touchdown 
but their attempted conversion by passing was knocked 


down and Trinity walked off the field victors by the nar- 
rowest of margins. 

In the first half, play was even with numerous 
fumbles by both teams. A Trinity drive in the Peter- 
borough zone was thwarted when the line let up and a kick 
was blocked. T.C.S. made up for this, combining Law- 
son's powerful bucks with Brewer's speed in skirting the 
ends. An attempted placement by Rogers was blocked, 
however, and Peterborough marched down the field to 
their opponents' ten yard line. They went over for a touch- 
down which was called back. Peterborough kicked on third 
down and the ball rolled to the deadline for a single point. 
At half time Peterborough led 1-0. 

The second half opened with French intercepting a 
pass to commence a drive which ended in a Trinity touch- 
down, Bruce going over on a buck. Brewer converted to 
send T.C.S. in the lead 6-1. Peterborough retaliated quick- 
ly, intercepting a flicker and marching down the field to 
the two yard line, from where Thompson went over for an 
unconverted touchdown. The score at three-quarter time 
was tied 6-6. 

Peterborough took the lead in the fourth quarter when 
Sisson made a forty yard run and Green kicked a single. 
Trinity retaliated by sending Lawson through for in- 
numerable long gains and finally he went over for a touch- 
down which was again converted by Brewer. Brewer 
kicked a single and with a minute to go T.C.S. led 13-7 and 
considering the game safely tucked away, let up. The 
Peterborough squad came roaring back and MacHveen 
crashed over for a major score. This meant that every- 
thing depended on the conversion, which failed, and Trinity 
was victorious. 

The game was poor and a good one to get out of the 
team's system. Lawson was a tower of strength in the 
winners' backfield while Brewer gained many yards around 
the end. Macllveen and Sisson were the best for Peter- 


Peterborough — Sisson, Richardson, Matthews, Macllveen, Thom- 
son, H. Graham, Rush, Patterson, Leek, Moyles, Chapman, David- 
son, Borrman, Clark, Lawrence, Zaharrek, Hempstead, Langhome, 
Brown, Green, de la Plante, W. Graham, McDougal. 

T.C.S. — Jarvis, French, Lawson, Taylor, Brewer, Mclntyre, 
Payne, Cox, Curtis, Rickaby, Hyde, Gaunt, Armour, Hall, Alley, 
Tessier, Conyers, Carson, Fennell, Campbell, Bruce, Rogers, Pang- 

At Newmarket, October 5: Won 14-6 

T.C.S. defeated Pickering College, at Newmarket, by 
a score of 14-6 on October 5. The game was played in 
blistering heat which tended to slow up the play. 

T.C.S. kicked off and after a series of exchanges Pic- 
kering blocked a T.C.S. kick and succeeded in scoring a 
point. Trinity began to roll with a well directed offensive 
which ended in a touchdown by Taylor. The convert was 
blocked. The visitors were constantly hampered during 
the first half by needless penalties. Pickering, taking ad- 
vantage of T.C.S. errors, pushed to the Trinity forty yard 
strip, from where Avery kicked, and recovering his kick 
raced for a touchdown. Play was even with both teams 
concentrating on ground offensives. The School gradually 
forced Pickering back giving Curtis an opportunity to kick 
a single. Thus at half time the score was 6-6 which in- 
dicated the play. 

In the third quarter the T.C.S. line blocked v/ell and 
opened many large holes through which Lawson made con- 
sistent gains. This drive and determination ended in a 
thirty-five yard run by Lawson for an unconverted touch- 
down. T.C.S. continued to drive making gains on end runs 
and reverse bucks. With the ball on the twenty yard line 
Curtis kicked a field goal giving the School a 14-6 lead. 

During the fourth quarter Pickering tried hard to 
overcome the eight point deficit but they were met by a 
charging line and a driving backfield. At last the home 
team took to the air but an alert T.C.S. defence showed no ' 



openings. T.C.S. began to roll again but the final whistle 
ended the drive leaving the score 14-6 for Trinity. 

For T.C.S. Lawson's plunging, Curtis's powerful kicks, 
Carson's terrific drive and French's hard tackling were the 
features. The line showed a complete reversal of form, 
charging low and blocking hard. For the home team 
Avery and McGuire were best. 

T.C.S. — Lawson and French, co-captains; Mclntyre, Conyers ii, 
Hyde, Rickaby, Carson, Curtis, Payne, Jarvis, Rogers, Taylor i, 
Hall, Alley, Tessier, Bruce, Armour, Cox, Campbell. 

Pickering — Waddel, capt., Marshall, McGuire, Lawrence, Cook, 
MacVannel, Widdrington, Spring, Humphrey, Roberton, Harrison, 
Capes, Force, Case, Rogers, Keenleyside, Avery, Hoover, Harmen. 

SCHOOL vs. U.T.S. 

At Toronto, October 11: Won 5-2 

Led by a hard-charging hne, Trinity College School de- 
feated University of Toronto Schools by a score of 5-2. 
Although U.T.S. made eleven first downs against ten for 
Trinity, the real difference came along the line, for only 
four out of the eleven times they made yards did they 
make them on the ground, while each of the ten times 
T.C.S. moved the yardsticks, it was either Bruce or Lawson 
carrying the ball. On the other hand U.T.S. made seven 
first downs on passes while Trinity didn't make one. The 
T.C.S. pass defence was very weak and at times it was 
necessary for the ends to cover possible receivers. 

Trinity kicked off and a nervous and frightened U.T.S. 
half-back dropped the ball and Hall recovered. The poor 
half made up for his error by intercepting a pass. In an 
exchange of kicks, U.T.S. had much the best of it and Bart- 
lett was put in position to kick a single. Lawson then 
plunged for two long gains and a good kick by Curtis set 
U.T.S. back on their ten yard line. In an exchange of 
kicks U.T.S. fumbled and Hyde recovered for Trinity. Law- 
son put the ball in scoring position and with the U.T.S. 


team packed in the centre to stop a buck, Rogers went wide 
around the end and crossed the line standing up for a 
touchdown which was not converted. Bartlett and Bark 
then led a U.T.S. drive which carried the ball to the Trinity 
five yard line where Trinity held, and took possession. A 
short kick again put U.T.S. in a scoring position but the 
time ran out and Trinity led at half time 5-1. 

In the first minutes of the second half play centred 
around mid-field until Bartlett threw a long pass to Vernon 
for twenty-five yards, and then he kicked a single. Trinity 
then made three first downs in a row before losing the ball 
on a fumble at their opponents' fifty yard line. U.T.S. 
took to the air and carried the ball to the twenty yard line 
where the T.C.S. line held. Curtis made a long kick and 
U.T.S. were on their own fifty with only minutes left to 
play. Bartlett threw successive completed passes to Ver- 
non and Robertson, and with time left for two plays, U.T.S. 
were on the Trinity ten yard line. Two running plays 
were stopped and Trinity emerged victorious by a score of 

U.T.S. played very well and deserved to fare better 
than they did. Bartlett and Bark were outstanding while 
Robertson tackled well. For T.C.S. Lawson played his 
usual fine game at bucking half while along the line Payne, 
Hyde, and Rickaby starred. 

T.C.S. — Lawson, French, Bruce, Rogers, Jarvis, Mclntyre, Cox, 
Payne, Curtis, Rickaby, Hyde, Conyers, Tessier, Gaunt, Drynan, 
Campbell, Alley, Hall, Fennell, Armour. 

U.T.S. — Vernon, Bark, Bartlett, Decker, Nollenhaeur, Wright, 

Finley, Campbell, Howard, McCracken, Whitehead, Robertson, Doll, 
Fox, Mitchell, Bonguard, Coke, Buckingham, Philpot, Fuller, Elgie, 
Sadlier, Copeland, Fell, Smith. 


Thanksgiving Day, October 14, 1946 

Following an announcement by the Headmaster that 
the annual Old Boys game this year would take the shape 


of an inter-house contest, a cloud of smoke descended up- 
on the Bigside field. It was observed (when the haze 
occasionally cleared away due to frequent gusts of wind) 
that both Houses were well represented. 

Some order was secured by Mr. Hodgetts' whistle, and 
the game began as Brent kicked off. The first quarter 
saw Brent dominating the play, Bethune being held deep in 
their own territory. However, the latter broke loose in 
the second quarter, on an end run which showed that Mc- 
Murrich and Britton had not lost the knack of running the 
ends. Following a twenty yard pass from Huycke to Phip- 
pen, Bethune scored one point on an attempted placement. 
Bethune held this lead until half time passed, and the half 
ended with the ball on Brent's ten yard line after Gilbert 
had caught a beautiful pass from Huycke who faked a 
third down kick. 

Bethune again took the offensive in the second half, 
scoring a single by Huycke and a touchdown on a Brent 
fumble which Phippen recovered. Lambert converted 
giving Bethune an eight nothing lead. Brent seemed to 
get their second wind at this point, and Decker supported 
by Sinclair and Duggan led Brent in a steady drive. This 
ended abruptly, however, when they fumbled on the Be- 
thune ten yard line, and Bethime again marched the ball 
to th,e Brent twenty on a series of end runs by Britton and 

Then, with one minute to go, Huycke threw a long pass 
to Wheeler, taking Bethune to Brent's two yard line. Brent 
recovered, however, only to lose the ball as Lambert inter- 
cepted a pass, and ran the ball back to the five yard line, 
when the final whistle blew to end the game in an eight- 
nothing victory for Bethune. 

Brent's standouts in this epic struggle were Sinclair. 
Decker and Jones. For Bethune, ably coached by Ross 
LeMesurier, Beament, Britton, McMurrich and Huycke 
were best. 


Bethime — Wade, Austin, Fulford, McDonald, Beament, Gilbert, 
Hawke, Phippen, Stewart, Lambert, McMurrich, Britton, Huycke 
(Capt.), Dalton, Wheeler, Morgan, LeMesurier, Armstrong. 

Brent — Jones, Fleming, Svenningson, MillhoUand, Curtis, Le- 
Sueur, Blaiklock, Sinclair (Capt.), Howard, Decker, McLean, Dug- 
gan, Love, Thompson, Bovey, Landry. 


This year due to the size of the squad, Middleside was 
divided into an under seventeen team to play in the C.O.S. 
S.A. League, and a seventeen and over team to play ex- 
hibition games. Goodbody has been elected Captain and 
MacPherson, Vice-Captain of the squad. 

Each team has played three games so far. The 
C.O.S.S.A. team has beaten Lindsay 4-1; Peterborough 
13-11, and Oshawa 10-0. The seventeen and over team de- 
feated Pickering 13-11 ; lost to Lakef ield 49-0 ; and then tied 
Lakefield 2-2 in the return game. 

An Old Boy, Ted Parker, is coaching both teams and 
is doing an excellent job. 

Under seventeen — Goodbody, Bascom, Boulden, Black, 
Brooks i, Byers, Gumming, Deverall, Dignam, Emery, Goer- 
ing, Montagu, Timmins, Harvie, Huycke, Johnston, Mac- 
Lean, Newcomb, Pilcher, Thompson i, Thompson iii, Vernon. 

Over seventeen — Brodeur i, Conyers i. Cross, de Pen- 
cier, Ensinck, Fulford, Ketchum, McGregor, McLaren, Mac- 
Pherson, Merry, Morgan i, Pepler, Tanner, Thompson ii, 
Vallance, Wilson, Wismer, Wood i. 


Littleside have a very strong team this year, a fact 
which is borne out by the scores of the two games they 
have played. They conquered Pickering 58-0, and defeat- 
ed Lakefield 16-6. Kingman and Thompson v have been 
elected co-captains of the team and Moffit vice-captain.

At Port Hope, September 28: Lost 6-3 

In their first League game of the year the soccer team 
turned in a fine performance against the Peterborough 
Spartan Aces. The early play was even, but half way 
through the first half the Aces scored on a hard shot by 
Whitnel. A few minutes later Whitnel again scored from 
a mix-up in front of the T.C.S. goal. Just before the end 
of the half the defence scored three quick goals to make 
the score at half time, 5-0. 

Early in the second half Whitnel scored his fourth 
goal of the game to make the score 6-0. T.C.S. now had 
the better part of the play and in a few minutes Cox ii 
scored on a pass from Hughes i. A second goal was added 
when Cox ii scored imassisted. The final goal came on a 
shot by Hughes i from a pass by Cox ii. 

Best for the Aces were Whitnel, Duffus, and Payne, 
while the T.C.S. attack was backed by the passing and 
shooting of Hughes i and Cox ii and several remarkable 
saves by Barnes. 

T.C.S. — Barnes, Harley, Bogue, Butterfield i, Paterson i, Wells, 
Hughes i, Stone, Crawford, Sweny, Cox ii. 

Peterborough — Woodcock, Payne, E. Downer, D. Downer, Duf- 
fus, Murdoff, Patterson, Whitnel, Love, McMasters, Marino. 




At Peterboroug'h, October 5: Lost 10-2 

In a return game T.C.S. was soundly trounced by a far 
superior team who were playing on their home ground. 
Scoring five goals in each half they completely disorganized 
the School's attack whose two goals came late in the 
second half, the first on a clever play by Butterfield i which 
enabled Cox to score and the second on a difficult shot by 
Cox ii. Scorers for the Aces were Whitnel, Duffus, C. Love, 
and McMasters two each, Patterson and Marino one each. 
Best for the Aces were Whitnel, Duffus and McMasters 
while Butterfield i. Wells and Cox played well for the 

T.C.S. — Barnes, Harley, Bogue, Butterfield i, Spencer, Wells, 
Hughes i, Sanborn, Cox il, Sweny, Dame. 

Peterborough — Woodcock, Payne, D. Downer, N. Love, McMas- 
ters, Post, E. Downer, Duffus, Whitnel, Patterson, C. Love. Subs: 
Murduff, Marino, Woods. 


At Peterborough, October 12: Lost 4-2 

On a muddy field T.C.S. lost to the Peterborough Tro- 
jans in a close game. Play was even throughout but the 
School lacked finish in front of their opponents' goal. An 
early goal by Pagett was followed by two more before the 
half ended with the School trailing 3-0. 

Early in the second half T.C.S. scored on a lucky shot 
by Paterson. Peterborough retaliated with a goal by Dyer 
two minutes later. Trinity attacked strongly and shortly 
before full time Cox score the School's final goal. Under 
difficult conditions both teams played a sound game. 

T.C.S. — Barnes, Harley, Bogue, Butterfield i, Paterson i. Wells, 
Hughes i, McDowell i. Cox ii, Sweny, Dame. 

Peterborough — Stewart, G. Pagett, Floyd, Collins, B. Beswick,

We welcome this year's crop of New Boys to the J.S. 
and sincerely hope they will enjoy their time with us. Our 
best wishes go with our Old Boys as they start their life 
in the Senior School. We shall hope to see them often. 

We also welcome Mr. Snelgrove to the staff of the 
Junior School and hope that his time with us will be a 
happy one. 

The J.S. does not seem to be quite the same without 
Mr. James. We all miss his presence and hope that he 
will visit us often during the winter months when he is 
less busy. 

Our sincere thanks to the Ladies' Guild for their con- 
tribution to our Library Fund and also for the gramaphone 
they have promised us. 

A number of new books have been added to the shelves 
of the Library and, judging by our library records, these 
are being well read. 

The J.S. Fall picnic was a great success this year. In 
the first place the weather was perfect and we also found 
a new picnic ground which offered everything we could 
want. The food was plentiful and (we hope) well-cooked 
by the boys themselves. Our thanks to Mrs. Moore's 
father, Mr. Hawkins, for allowing us the use of his land. 


Guy Fawkes' Day is on the fifth of November. It is 
celebrated only in England. It all started in 1605, when 
certain Catholic gentlemen were very much annoyed by 
some anticatholic laws which were passed by Parliament. 
One of these gentlemen was a Yorkshireman, Guy Fawkes 
by name, who was chosen to carry out the scheme. 

The scheme was this. Guy Fawkes rented a house 
next to the Houses of Parliament and then dug a tunnel 


from his cellar into the cellar under the House of Lords. 
He then planted a lot of gunpowder designed to blow up 
the Members. This was known as the Gunpowder Plot. 
But it did not work because one of the conspirators, who 
was a traitor, wrote a letter to a friend telling him to stay 
away from the Houses of Parliament. This raised suspicion, 
as the Protestants knew that the Catholics were very bit- 
ter against them. As a result the cellars were carefully 
searched on November 4th, the night before the gunpowder 
was to be set off. Guy Fawkes was discovered in the act 
of attending to the fuses. He was arrested, tried, and 
executed in January, 1606. 

From this time forth, every year, all English children 
celebrate the discovery of the Plot. Huge bonfires are lit 
and dummies of Guy Fawkes are burnt. Fireworks are

Gadzooks! 'od's teeth! The fight is on; 

Fainthearted did his armour don. 

O look, they are astride their steeds! 

They charge to 'venge some gruesome deeds. 

With mighty crash their lances meet; 

His adversary has lost his seat. 

He's down with a thud, his armour gory; 

Fotheringill rides off in golden glory. 

A knightly bow he gives his queen; 

The vanquished one doth vent his spleen. 

Cheers rend the air, the fight is done; 

Fainthearted now the fight has won.

King Cole had visited the ranch again last night. He 
had killed and partly eaten a stallion and had gone back 
up into the hills to digest his meal. 

King Cole was a great, big, black bear. He had hurt 
many men in his three years of existence and had killed 
over forty horses. Mr. Schaffer or "Shaver" as he was 
called by the ranch hands, had sent many expeditions after- 
him and, though wounding him once, he had always got 
away. Shaver has set traps for him, but these had always 
been eluded; he had poisoned the dead carcasses, but to no 
avail. The old bear had completely ignored them. 

After today's find, Shaver decided to go out after him 
immediately. The bear had gorged himself and was walk- 
ing slowly, as his tracks showed. Within an hour, the 
party of four men on horseback, two bloodhounds, and 
five strong mastiffs set out. 

The bloodhounds picked up the trail immediately as 
it was still fresh and they progressed quickly. After about 
an hour the dogs became more and more excited and start- 
ed to run. Suddenly, from the bushes about a hundred 
yards ahead of us, there came a loud roar and King Cole 
himself came out to meet us, blinking his eyes in the sun. 

The excited dogs set upon him immediately before a 
shot could be fired. The men circled round and round the 
melee looking for a chance to fire, but not daring to for 
fear of hitting a dog. Finally "Tex", a young ranch hand, 
rushed into the brawl and fired four shots into the bear's 

Late that afternoon the triumphant party bore the 
huge body of the dead bear back to the ranch.

Out on the rolling waters, 
Of a dark, unknown sea; 
There is a ship sails on, sails on, 
To a land of eternity. 

To a land of peace, this vessel sails, 
A paradise land to be sure. 
Where Love dwells on for evermore 
And all men's hearts are pure. 

The way to this land is hard and rough, 

And requires brave hearts to win it, 

But the Garden of Heaven, for that's what it is, 

Is glorious once one is within it. 

And some night, when you're half-asleep, 
You may behold this sight 
In your dreamy vision, which slumber gives, 
As you drift to sleep in the night. 

Of the ship which sails through storm and gale, 

Ceasing nor stopping never, 

To a land of Love, and Peace, and Rest, 

Where one lives on for ever. 

— R. J. Anderson, Form IB. 


The chipmunk was sitting on top of the wood-pile. His 
every nerve was tense as he stared at a small pile of cherry 
pits lying on the ground about three feet away from me. 
Suddenly, he jumped down a crevice in the wood-pile and 
re-appeared a little closer to the pits. His tail was sticking 
up like a little flag-pole and his ears were cockily perked 
as he sat down and stared about him. Finally, after an 


intolerable wait, while the flies buzzed around my head 
and bothered me, he got up enough courage to run up, 
grab a pit or two, and dash back to cover. A little later, 
he re-appeared on the wood-pile eating busily. 

After he had finished, he ran up to within a yard of 
the pits, but paused, as I was now within a foot of them. 
Apparently he decided that, as nothing had happened to 
him before, nothing would happen now. So he hopped up, 
sat down, and began to eat. When he had gathered all the 
loot he could carry, he ran back to his beloved wood-pile 
to hide it. The next time he returned, he seemed to have 
lost all fear of me and ate pits right out of my hand.

You don't know when it's coming, 
You don't know when it's there, 
It's just a little gremlin 
That's always in your hair. 

It fools around with aeroplanes, 

It never seems to care 

If you plummet down in the desert 

Without any water to spare. 

It's just a little gremlin, 

A pesky little gremlin, 

A nasty little gremlin. 

That's always in your hair. 

One day as I was writing 
Some work that must be done, 
Along came this little gremlin 
To muss up all my fun. 

It spilled ink on my notebook 
Which I kept neat and trim, 


I was scolded by the master, 

And so I said to him, 

"Oh please no quarters this time, 

Please do not look so grim. 

It's just a little gremlin, 

A pesky little gremlin, 

A nasty little gremlin 

That's always in my hair." 

-F. Weicker, Form III. 



Captain — E. M, Hoffmann. Vice-Captain — P. A. C. Ketchum 
We have had to start rebuilding the rugby squad from 
the ground up this year. Only one Old Colour remained 
from last year's team and we had no trained quarter back 
available. In spite of these handicaps, everybody has work- 
ed with a will and our first game against Lakefield showed 
that this year's team promises to be well up to standard. 
The spirit of the team is good and we can look forward to 
them giving a good account of themselves. Games have 
been arranged with Lakefield, St. Andrew's, Upper Canada, 
and Ridley. 

At Lakefield, October 10 

The School opened up slowly against the Grove with 
the result that Lakefield dominated the play during the 
first quarter of the game scoring two rouges and an un- 
converted touchdown. The play was very evenly matched 
during the second quarter with neither team scoring. The 
score at half-time was 7-0 in favour of the Grove. 

The third quarter saw T.C.S. opening up with a series 
of passes and end-runs which brought them an early touch- 
down. The rest of the quarter was scoreless. A very 


smart sleeper play caught the School flat-footed in the 
early part of the last quarter and the Grove scored a touch- 
down which they converted. A few minutes later an inter- 
cepted forward brought them another touchdown which 
they failed to convert. The remainder of the period was en- 
tirely dominated by T.C.S. who scored an unconverted 
touchdown. The closing minutes of the game saw the School 
strongly on the offensive but failing to tie up the score. The 
line is to be congratulated on the great improvement in form 
shown as the game went on. The rest of the team all 
played well and it would be invidious to pick out the in- 
dividual players. 

Final score: Grove 18, T.C.S. 10. 

T.C.S. — Hoffmann (Capt.), Ketchum i, Southam i, Mc- 
Rae, Bruce, Woods, Pitt, McDerment, Oatway, Martin, 
Weicker, Tench; subs: Osier i, Gundy, Gill, Brinckman. 


Captain— W. F. B. Church. Vice-Captain— C. A. Woolley. 
There is a lot of good talent available for soccer again 
this year and the teams are getting into excellent shape. 
We hope to have two teams and games have been arranged 
with Lakefield and Crescent School.

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of October, December, 

February, April, May and July. 

Authorized as Second Class Mail, Post Office Department, Ottawa. 


Several years ago there appeared in the Record a story 
pertaining to striking a happy medium. Though that story 
appeared in the "Off the Record" section the same idea 
taken seriously is a very necessary and helpful one for boys 
at T.C.S. to acquire. With the full and busy curriculum 
at the School a boy will become completely lost if he does 
not find some balance between work and play. A boy who 
is able to find this sense of proportion in his life here is 
a smart and sensible one and he will, nine times out of ten, 


be much more successful than the one who concentrates 
all his energies and time in one field. 

Don't think that I am advocating a planned time-table 
from the moment the "riser" rings until our lights are 
out at night. Far from it. A certain amount of planning 
in connection with one's work is no doubt very helpful, yet 
if every minute of our time were pre-arranged we would 
become more like machines than human beings. A certain 
amount of free time is not only desirable but essential. It 
is just that a boy must keep his wits about him and be able 
to pick the useful from the useless and then spend his time 

The reason that this is so necessary at T.C.S. is that 
there is so much for a boy to do and so many facilities at 
his disposal that there always seem to be about three 
things that "have" to be done at the same time. And it 
is therefore necessary for him to choose and choose wisely 
so that he will spend his time as advantageously as pos- 
sible. There are many fields of sport tempting a boy every 
minute and yet he must learn to give up a certain amount 
of recreation to concentrate on his school-work. For no 
one will win in the long run if he ignores his studies and 
does nothing but athletics, even though he may be a star 
on the playing field. Yet it would be equally wrong for a 
boy to concentrate so much on his work that he did nothing 
else. One's education here goes a long way beyond the 
classroom block and it would be. to my mind, as grave an 
error to ignore athletics as it would be to ignore scholastics. 
In doing either you are passing up completely one whole 
phase of your education. Thus it is necessary for a boy to 
strike this happy medium in order that his life here will 
do him the utmost good. There can be no set standard 
for anyone; each person is different and must find this 
balance himself. One boy will need to concentrate a bit 
more on his work while another's studies will come more 
easily and he will be able to play more sports. 


This same idea should be carried even further for there 
is less danger of boys emphasizing the organized side of 
school life — sports and studies — than there is of them using 
their free time foolishly and without thought of benefiting 
themselves or the School. I think only the extremist will 
advocate that boys spend, or should spend, their time do- 
ing, to all intents and purposes, nothing. By this I mean 
listening to the radio, loafing, having "bull sessions" and 
the countless other ways which boys find to while away 
the time. This they certainly do and it is a perfectly 
natural and enjoyable way to spend the time. And, to a 
certain extent, it is useful for it provides complete relaxa- 
tion. It is silly to shut your eyes to this side of the school 
life as it certainly exists. However, like all other phases 
of our daily life here, it can be overdone. There are many 
extra-curricular activities about the School which are good 
for the boy engaged in them. These should be inter- 
mingled with the rest of our free time so that we are not. 
as it were, part of the School only when we are in the 
classroom or on the playing field. Thus another happy 
medium must be found. This time we must balance our 
spare time so as to best benefit the School and, at the same 
time, ourselves. Again it would be wrong to go to either 

This idea of getting a bit of everything into our life 
may suggest the ancient saying, "Jack of all trades, 
master of none", and some may say that by taking a middle 
road we become efficient in no one branch. This may be 
true in later life but it seems to me that boys such as we 
would get irretrievably lost in a deep rut if we started 
from school following one and only one path. And also a 
boy would not get the full value of the many and varied 
facilities of T.C.S. were he to concentrate on only one thing. 

If we can learn to find a proper balance in our lives 
we have gone a long way. In college and even more so 
after college, we must have a sense of values which, if pro- 
perly adjusted, will be of immeasurable help to us all our 


lives. College will be even harder than school as there is 
no supervision over us and we must again know when to 
start and when to stop. There will be no set time for 
anything as there is in school and we will be completely 
on our own. If we remain level-headed and if we know 
when we can do something and when we can't, we will, I 
am sure, be more qualified to face the problems that con- 
front us and what is more we will be far happier. 

— J^F. 



The campaign for this fund is to take place early in 
January; already we have a good beginning, and there is 
every reason to expect that the objective set by the com- 
mittee as being vitally necessary for the completion of our 
plans, some two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, will 
be reached. 

It is a noble purpose and one which could not be closer 
to the hearts of all T.C.S. people. The chapel will be a 
memorial to our gallant sons who in three wars went from 
us and died in alien lands so that the tide of hatred and 
tyranny should not engulf us. 

They were, nearly all of them, young lads, with their 
paths of life winding before them in this most pleasant 
land. But they volunteered with high spirits, and left 
their homes, their own dear ones, their school, their 
careers, their much loved country retreats to plunge them- 
selves into the maelstrom of destruction and death which 
finally engulfed them. 

No words can do full justice to their courage or to the 
nobility of their self-sacrifice ; no deeds can be truly worthy 
of them: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man 
lay down his life for his friends"; "Be ye doers of the 
word, and not hearers only." 

Fourteen hundred T.C.S. boys have faced the foe with 
valiant hearts; one hundred and eighty-six have not re- 
turned to us. 

The chapel will be a memorial to them, a holy place 
in which we can be very near to them in spirit, and where 
inspiration for our lives will be given to us. 

It is a high privilege to raise such a memorial; it will 
bind together the past, the present, and the future in one 
communion of souls, and knit our hearts in brotherhood 

We can think of no more acceptable way of rendering 
thanks to God for giving us such noble sons, and for 


a new world worthy of the hopes of those who have died 
sparing many who may now use their talents in building 
for us and of all mankind. 

"O Father of Lights, unvarying and true, 
Let us build the Palace of Life anew 
Let us build for the years we shall not see 
Let us build it for ever in splendour new." 
The plans for the chapel have been drawn by Mr. 
A. S. Mathers of the firm of Mathers and Haldenby, To- 
ronto. The building committee have given close considera- 
tion to every detail, and they believe the proposed build- 
ing will fulfil all our aspirations in its consecrated purpose 
and will be unique among school chapels in this country. 

Before construction begins, the Governing Body has 
decided it must have in reserve a sum sufficient for the up- 
keep of the chapel. 

If every Old Boy and friend of the School will realize 
the noble nature of this undertaking, and give accordingly, 
there will be no question of the success of the appeal.

On Sunday, October 20, the Reverend E. R. Bagley 
spoke in Chapel. His text which was taken from St. Mat- 
thew was "Watch therefore and pray, for ye know not the 
hour of the coming of the Lord", and his main theme was 
that Christianity is not a rigid code of laws but rather a 
way of life. He pointed out that it is the unconscious good 
deeds that are worth most. As an example of this, he took 
the story of Paul and Silas singing in jail and thus making 
the other prisoners happy. In closing he said that if we 
go around looking for good deeds to perform we soon 
acquire a self-righteous attitude; if, however, we live a 
full life trying to do what we know to be right, then we 
can safely leave the judgment of our works to Gk)d. 

Address of Mr. J. D. Ketchum 

We were greatly honoured to have Mr. J. D. Ketchum 
('07-'10), professor of psychology at the University of 
Toronto, speak to us at Matins, Sunday, October 27. This 


was a special pleasure as Mr. Ketchum is a brother of the 
Headmaster, as well as an Old Boy and one-time master 

His subject was courage, and he commenced by telling 
us of the need for real courage in the world to-day; not 
the kind inspired by rage, but true, calm courage. As an 
example of this, he cited those Americans on Bataan in 
3942, who knew they were doomed, yet kept on fighting 
to the bitter end, mainly because they were a part of a 
great nation. 

Mr. Ketchum pointed out that courage stems from a 
group, and that it is only by being part of a group that we 
can obtain this courage. Here at T.C.S. we have a chance 
to become one of such a group. The enviable war record 
enjoyed by the Old Boys of this School and of others like 
it proves that. 

In conclusion, he told us to try and forget ourselves, 
and let ourselves become a part of whatever group we find 
ourselves in, whether it is something relatively small like 
the School, or overwhelmingly large like the world where 
we will be when we leave School. In this way we will 
aU find the courage which we need to carry us through 
the trials and tribulations of our lives in this difficult era. 

On the tenth of November, the Sunday before Remem- 
brance Day, Mr. Bagley preached in Chapel and took his 
text from Proverbs, 12 : 27, "The slothful man roasteth 
not that which he took in hunting." 

The Chaplain went on to apply the text to the modem 
world. He showed the School all the benefits that have 
been given to us and said that we have not made full use 
of the possibilities that have been set before us. We don't 
appreciate all of the freedoms that other men have won 
for us through their own sacrifices. 

The gains that were made by victory in the first World 
War were spoiled through selfishness and greed, and he 


said that these same faults must not be allowed to appear 
in the world to-day. Men gave their lives for a cause that 
they believed in and their lives must not have been sacri- 
ficed in vain. 

We must cultivate our talents to prevent a depression 
similar to the one that followed the '14-'18 War, and we 
must also stop a religious and moral slump which has al- 
ready started to appear. 

The Chaplain closed by saying that the war will not 
be completely won until these problems are overcome, and 
that we can only surmount them through continual faith 
in Jesus Christ. 

On Sunday, November 17, the Reverend E. R. Bagley 
spoke in Chapel. His sermon was based on the differences 
between "Justification by words" and "Justification by 
faith". He pointed out that it was Luther who, dismayed 
by the realization of his failures, had put forth the latter 
doctrine. At that time, however, this was a very worthy 
reform to propose because the alternate doctrine was be- 
ing misused by the Roman church to make money for un- 
worthy causes. Mr. Bagley then went on to say that the 
two doctrines could not really be separated since true 
faith compels one to do good works. We do not sing to 
make ourselves happy but because we are happy, and good 
works are equally automatic if we pray for and receive 
the Grace of God. 

It was with much pleasure that we welcomed the 
Reverend Archdeacon Robertson of Peterborough back to 
the School on Sunday. November 24. He chose for the 
text of his sermon, the 24th-29th verses of the seventh 
chapter of St. Matthew's gospel, which is the parable of 
the man who built his house upon a rock and it survived 
the great rains, while the man who built his house on the 
sands fell and great was its fall. 



He used Defoe's famous novel, Robinson Crusoe, as an 
illustration of this. For first he looked for shelter, then 
for food and finally for a permanent rock to serve as the 
foundation of his dwelling. We must apply this parable 
to our lives, the rock we must build upon is our Lord. 
Jesus Christ, and the food must be the continual and stead- 
fast devotion to Christianity and its principles. 

Remembrance Day 

Remembrance Day, November 11. was observed by 
the whole School when a wreath was laid at the foot of 
the Memorial Cross, followed by the two minutes' silence. 



After the half-term break has passed, everyone starts 
to try to find something to look forward to. With many 
boys, and especially as they find the days slipping by, it 
is the Christmas holidays. There are some who look upon 
this time only as a break between classes, but I think that 
most of us long for them because of what they bring. All 
this starts when the tension of exams is over and the 
Christmas dinner is held. It is then that the atmosphere 
begins to sink in, and even after many j'-ears at the School 
I find I still get a thrill on arriving home to find every- 
thing buzzing with preparation. Christmas comes, with 
bright colours and shiny tinsel scattered about the carpet 
near the tree; Christmas goes, but not regretfully, leaving 
torn wrappings and the smell of pine needles in the living 
room. There is in this atmosphere peace, a peace which 
no one, however humble, cannot feel and enter into with 
all his heart. You do not have to believe in Santa Claus 
to have the Christmas spirit; just rejoice, and remember 
that Christmas is a Birthday.

Trinity College School gave a dinner to the Most 
Reverend Derwyn T. Owen. Archbishop of Toronto and 
Primate of all Canada, and Mrs. Owen on the evening of 
November 4, 1946. It was a belated birthday party as the 
Primate celebrated his 70th birthday on the 29th of July 
and Mrs Owen's birthday was on the 10th of June. There 
were 162 guests, 32 of them being at the head table. They 
consisted of the clergy from the towns and villages of this 
Archdeaconry, their wardens, with their wives. 

As the Headmaster had had to undergo an operation, 
he asked Mr. Jellett to go to Port Hope and preside. 

The School Grace in Latin was said by the Chaplain, 
the Rev. Mr. Bagley. 

Mr. Jellett made the following remarks in introducing 
Archdeacon Robertson of Peterborough, who was to speak 
on the life and works of the Primate. 

"In the much-to-be-regretted absence of the Headmaster 
I make you welcome at Trinity College School to join with 
us in doing honour to the School's Visitor — the Most 
Reverend Derwyn Trevor Owen, Archbishop of Toronto 
and Primate of all Canada, and his wife, in the form of an 
Unbirthday Party on the line suggested by Lewis Carroll, 
who, you will remember, wrote of an Unbirthday Present 
as a present given to anyone on a day other than his birth- 
day. Actually the Primate's 70th birthday occurred on 
the 29th of July last but this is the first opportunity we 
could make to celebrate it. As we thus reach back to the 29th 
of July we can go further to the 10th of June and include 
his v/ife as that was her birthday, but — as anyone can tell 
by looking at her — not her 70th! 

"It is fitting that we should couple them in this way 
as I know of no two persons more joined together in their 
married life, their family life, and their life of service to 
the Church, than our two guests of this evening.

"Philip Ketchum, our Headmaster, would be presiding 
tonight if an unkind fate had not decreed otherwise by 
subjecting him to a painful trouble culminating in the 
necessity for an operation which called for the removal of 
a disc from his spinal column. He is at the Toronto 
General Hospital and you will be relieved to learn that he 
is making a satisfactory recovery. He has asked me to 
say how deeply sorry he is to be absent. He had been 
looking forward to this party ever since last spring and had 
wanted very much to meet all the clergy and wardens, and 
their wives, of the Archdeaconry. He hopes another 
opportunity to do so wUl occur. 

"T.C.S. is a church school and it is a privilege to be in 
a position to entertain the pillars of the church in this 

"I was called in as a senior member of the Governing 
Body of the School, and also because my sister, with whom 
I was a great chum in our childhood, is included in the 
honours, and Derwyn Owen is my oldest and by-me-most- 
admired friend. I have known him for nearly fifty years 
and since his days at Trinity University before it was a 
college in affiliation with the University of Toronto. 

''My connection with Trinity College School is unique. 
We have now Old Boys in the thousands and many Old 
Boys have had sons at the School. So have I, but I alone 
have also had a mother at the School as she was the 
matron here from 1892 to 1897 and her days here were 
never out of her memory. Being so intensely T.C.S. ified 
(English master present, please note the word), I am 
proud indeed to represent the School on this memorable 
and delightful occasion. 

"Rather than expressing my own thoughts about our 
special guests I am fortunate in being able to tell you 
something of what Philip Ketchum would have said had he 
stood in my shoes, as in spite of pain and discomfort he 
has managed to scribble in pencil some of the things that — 


in anticipation of this evening — have occupied his mind: 
(and here he speaks) 

'I would have explained in outline why the School felt 
it an exceptional privilege to do honour to the Primate and 
Mrs. Owen. Their lifelong work for the Church we all 
know, their noble courage and high faith we have seen 
again and again and especially during these past few years 
and it has inspired us. Their unfailing sympathy and 
kindness, their devotion to their people has been universal- 
ly experienced and recognized over the wide field of their 

'Since he became Primate, the Archbishop has been 
one of the busiest men, yet he has always had time to talk 
to anyone about matters in which he might be of help. His 
unswerving devotion and simple, saintly belief have made 
us feel so often that truly he walks with God. He has on 
all possible occasions brought home to us his deep sense 
of the personal responsibility that rests on all of us to live 
as Christ would have us live and to realize that we are 
the Church — the member of Christ's body. 

'Few Canadians have achieved such ecclesiastical 
eminence. Recognized throughout the country as an out- 
standing leader in religious life, he is widely known and 
admired both in England and in the United States. Like 
another great T.C.S. churchman. Bishop Brent, he has 
worked for the close union of all Protestant denominations. 
His broadness has embraced all of his flock in one united 
family so that the Canadian Church today is stronger than 
ever before. He is a lovable man, modest and unassuming, 
and he makes everyone feel at ease. In short he has all 
the characteristics of true greatness. Never can we be 
unmindful of all this great man, this man of God, has done 
for us. In thinking as we do of His Grace and his accom- 
plishments we link with him in every way that leader 
among our church women, his wife.' (Here end the words 
of Mr. Ketchum). 


"While the Venerable Archdeacon Robertson will speak 
to you shortly of the life and work of the Primate, I shall 
just mention the following four conspicuous examples of 
the great things which he has done for the Church in 
Canada which have come to my mind: — 

"Attendance and representation of the Canadian 
Church at Lambeth Conferences. 

"His trip to England in 1943 to visit the Canadian 

"His splendid nationwide broadcast on V.E. Day. 

"The recent successful Anglican Advance Appeal. 

"I am sure we all wish Archbishop and Mrs. Owen 
Many happy returns of the day." 

The Venerable Archdeacon Robertson then spoke most 
feelingly of the Primate's life work. 

The Archbishop, in expressing his thanks to the Head- 
master for planning the Dinner, to Mr. R. P. Jellett for his 
kindness in coming from Montreal to preside when Mr. 
Ketchum unfortunately fell ill, went on to thank those who 
had come, in many cases from long distances to share with 
him in the happiness of the occasion. He outlined some of 
the incidents of his life, making reference to the debt he 
owed to his father and mother, to his wife and children. 
He drew little word pictures of some of the events of his 
Ufe on the prairies, in England, and Ontario. 

Summing up, he said that there were three lessons 
which, in his opinion, came out of the changes and chances 
of his life. 

1. "There is a destiny which shapes our ends." 

2. The things which seem to be against us turn out 
to be great helps upon the journey. 

3. And that here in this life we have no abiding city, 
but that the things that are not seen, seem eternal. 

All those present were deeply touched by his remarks. 

The Rev. Mr. MacLean in a few words expressed 
thanks for what the Primate had said and referred par- 
ticularly to his wartime visit to England. 


At the end of the dinner, the lights, except the candles 
on the head table, were put out and a great birthday cake 
with seventy little candles alight was brought in and pre- 
sented to the Primate and Mrs. Owen. Mrs. Ketchum then 
presented the gifts to the two chief guests making a happy 
little speech, and both of them said a thank-you for them. 

The dinner ended at 9.50 p.m. when the guests came 
up and shook hands with the Primate before leaving for 
their homes. 

In bringing the meeting to a close Mr. Jellett stated 
that a great war memorial chapel and tower were to be 
erected at the School in memory of those Old Boys whose 
lives had been lost and in thankfulness for the safe return 
of those who were spared, and hoped that all the guests 
would have an opportunity of seeing this memorial when 
it was completed and in use. 


K.C.B., C.M.G. 

The following account of a famous T.C.S. Old Boy is 
a summary of an article in the Royal Military College Re- 
view for 1946. The author of the original was the late 
Col. A. H. Van Straubenzee ('71-76). 

General Bridges was born in the year 1861 in Glasgow 
where his father was serving in the Royal Navy. His 
education probably commenced at a small day school in 
Ryde; on Lady Day, 1871, he entered the Royal Navy 
School at New Cross, London. In 1872, at mid-summer, 
he came with his parents to Montreal and later entered 
Trinity College School at Port Hope, Ontario, where he was 
a student from 1873-1876. 

In 1877 the young Bridges passed into the Military 
College at Kingston and obtained his M.Q. certificate in 
1879. He was then over six foot tall, of slight build, with 
long legs and a slight stoop from the shoulders; he did not 


play games, nor was he prominent in his studies but spent 
much of his spare time reading in the smoke room. After 
leaving the College he rejoined his parents, who had re- 
turned to Australia and soon secured employment in the 
Department of Roads and Bridges in Sydney, being made 
an Inspector at Murrionundi and Narrabri. 

In 1882 he received an appointment as Lieutenant in 
the New South Wales permanent Militia Artillery, at the 
age of 24, from which time his active military career may 
be said to have really commenced. He was placed in charge 
of the Middle Head Forts at Sydney. The place was very 
isolated, and did not offer much in the way of work, so 
that his prospects did not look very promising. He de- 
voted his time to reading, and spent many hours sailing in 
the company of the officer in command of the South Head 
Forts. The authorities, however, decided wisely to estab- 
lish a School of Gunnery at Middle Head. So in 1891 he 
attended courses of instruction at Woolwich and Shoe- 
buryness — also a Firemaster's Course, and two years later 
he was promoted to Major and made Chief Instructor 
which appointment he held for nine years, until March, 

During this time, however, occurred the South African 
War, and in 1899 Bridges left Sydney on the transport 
Aberdeen and arrived at Cape Town on the 6th December, 
where he was attached to the R.A. under Colonel Davidson, 
R.H.A., who was C.R.A. on General French's staff. He 
was present at the operations in Cape Colony, South of 
Orange River, including actions at Colesberg; in the Relief 
of Kimberley; in Orange Free State, February to May, in- 
cluding Paardeberg, Polar Grove, Dreifontein and Karee 
Siding. He took two horses as chargers with him. One 
was stolen at Dekiels Farm, the other had to be shot at 
Kimberley. He was struck down with enteric fever and 
invalided to England and returned via Cape Town to 
Sydney which he reached on 21 September, 1900. He re- 
ceived the Queen's Medal with three clasps. 


In 1902 Bridges was promoted to the rank of Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel and made A.Q.M.G., Headquarters Staff. 
Two years later he was acting D.A.G. and Chief Intelligence 
Officer working in connection with the Defence Scheme of 
Australia, and in 1905 he was Chief of Intelligence on the 
newly constituted Board of Military Administration which 
later in 1909 and 1910 necessitated his attending meetings 
at the Imperial General Staff in London. 

In 1905 he came into touch with Colonel George Kirk- 
patrick ('76-'79), (later General Sir G. M. Kirkpatrick) 
who visited Australia for the London War Office whilst 
Bridges was on duty in England. The Australian Grovem- 
ment invited Lord Kitchener, then in India, to visit and 
report on its military affairs, especially the subject of uni- 
versal military training. This Lord Kitchener did and 
took with him Kirkpatrick who was then serving on his 
staff in India. His first advice was to establish a military 
college like the Canadian one at Kingston, and he sug- 
gested that it would be advisable to put an Australian 
officer in command of it, suggesting Bridges; this advice 
was accepted and Bridges was recalled to Sydney, much 
against his personal wishes. 

In this interval Kirkpatrick had returned to India but 
was shortly afterwards appointed Inspector General of the 
Australian Forces on 8 May. 1910. Strangely enough, 
without knowing it Kirkpatrick from India, and Bridges 
from London, found themselves at Colombo on the same 
ship going to Sydney, so were able to discuss military mat- 
ters together. Both had been educated at T.C.S. and at 
Kingston. Bridges being the senior in age by about five 

On his appointment as Commandant R.M. College, 30 
May, 1910, Bridges received the rank of Brigadier General, 
and threw himself whole-heartedly mto the heavy task 
that lay ahead of him, the site to be chosen, with the many 
buildings required, the students to be admitted, their en- 
trance examination, the staff required, a tour of existing 


colleges in England and abroad. All these matters called 
for the most careful consideration. 

When Bridges left Duntroon only the work of the 
cadets in their first year had been settled so Colonel Gw^tui 
had much to do in considering details of a second year's 
work, as well as general supervision of all the buildings 
now in course of erection. In these early years a very 
efficient course of instruction was established, including an 
excellent high standard of morale. The August number 
1915 R.M. College Journal Duntroon thus speaks of 
Bridges: "Duntroon is his Masterpiece; less than five 
years ago there was but a large station homestead, sur- 
rounded by wide pastures; now a great group of buildings, 
built with judgment and foresight to cope with the needs 
of a great military academy, stands as a monument to his 
energy and tenacity of purpose. Being of a dogged deter- 
mination, and unselfish in devotion to duty, he achieved, 
in the short space of four years, what may be regarded as 
the greatest educational feat yet accomplished in Australia. 

"As a soldier he was supremely an organizer. One 
does not hesitate to compare him to Lord Kitchener in 
this. To say such a comparison is wrong is merely to say 
that Sir William Bridges never had the opportunities that 
fell to the great Englishman. A man must be reckoned 
great as he masters and carries out what is set before him, 
provided of course, that the work asked for is one demand- 
ing great ability. He had just those qualities which mark 
out Lord Kitchener. He was equally a master of outline, 
and a master of detail. He could generalize and discriminate 
— he could set his fingers surely on the mainspring of any 
scheme, whether to construct or destroy. He had even 
Kitchener's faults, his hardness, his impatience at ordinary 
human weakness, his contempt for what others might say. 
His most striking quality was a high sense of duty which 
was with him almost a religion. 

"We cherish highly indeed his association with Dunt- 
roon. It is much to say that four of the best years of our 


greatest soldier's life was spent in organizing this Col- 

So much for the inception of Bridges' "Magnum Opus". 
What of the man himself? In many respects he was a 
strange character with many contradictory qualities, which 
gave him many good friends, but perhaps more bitter 
enemies; he had outstanding physical courage but he had 
a nervous streak, which showed itself in a tendency to 
hypochondriasis and in a shyness which made him avoid 
even watching training or entering a class-room. All the 
same he kept in very close touch with all that was going on 
and there was no doubt of the influence he exercised or of 
his remarkable ability and wide range of knowledge. He 
had some curious tastes and idiosyncrasies. When on leave 
he took every opportunity of watching a friend, a distin- 
guished surgeon, performing operations. He broke the 
heart of his clerks by making small and quite unnecessary 
alterations in everything he wrote. The least important 
letter had often to be typed half a dozen times. 

Altogether I should judge that he was a strange 
amalgam of force of character, great ability, which he 
fully realized he possessed, yet withal a victim of a marked 
inferiority complex against which he waged continuous 
mental struggle. 

The First Great War found Bridges inspecting troops 
in Queensland but he returned to Melbourne on the 5th 
August where he was informed that the Dominion had 
offered to raise a force of 20.000 men, and had asked the 
London War Office whether the force would be organized 
as a Division or otherwise. The reply sent by the War 
Office suggested that the force might be two Infantry 
Brigades, one light horse brigade, and one field artillery 
brigade; these would aggregate about 12,000 men. To 
Bridges and his staff it was quite clear that any force 
would be dismembered and incorporated with units from 
other parts of the Empire, in such a way that its natural 
character would be lost. Bridges was determined that 


Australia should send one complete Division, and drafted 
for the Minister of Defence a reply somewhat as follows: 

"Expected fully 20.000 men to go and have commenced 
the organisation of an Infantry Division, three Brigades 
of Artillery as well as Light Horse Brigade — do you con- 
cur or do you still wish your proposal adopted? Anticipate 
embarking in four to six weeks. An early answer is re- 
quested." Next day the War Office gladly availed itself of 
the offer. The stand thus taken by the far-sighted Bridges 
settled the future character of a national Australian Force. 
Bridges had no idea at this time of being appointed to com- 
mand it, but anticipated, he, as a senior officer at home, 
would be left to organize and improve Australia's home de- 

The steps taken by Bridges to organize the Division 
were as follows: He selected the Officers who would be 
the Brigadiers before the active recruiting commenced and 
attached them to the Commandants of Districts in their 
respective States, he left the choice of battalion Com- 
manders to the Brigadiers who in turn selected the Majors, 
Captains and Subaltern Officers who could serve under 
them. The training of the younger officers was compara- 
tively an easy matter, as the young bushman learns at an 
early age to be very self reliant — the provision and cook- 
ing of his meals, forage for horses and cattle — to stick on 
horseback, and finding his way across country, as well as 
beating down and destroying bush fires. The graduates 
of the first year course at Duntroon were commissioned in 
the first contingent, and those of the second year courses 
were taken as officers in the second contingent of the A.I.F. 

The Engineers were raised from the men who were 
tradesmen and had volunteered — from which Bridges form- 
ed three field companies — one for each of the three infan- 
try brigades. 

Eventually it was ascertained the first division con- 
tained 8595 men. 


Some 6098 had never served before — the ages were 
from 19 to 38. Ninety percent were not married. The 
Government declined the suggestion made by Bridges to 
give the command to Sir E. Hutton and gave it to Bridges 
himself who organized all the details and gave the Force 
its name. 

The following notes followed closely the description 
given in the Australian paper "Reveille": 

Landing on Anzac shore at 7.20 a.m., 25th April, 
Bridges hurried along the beach to inform himself of the 
position which had arisen in consequence of the force 
having been put ashore a mile north of the intended land- 
ing place. 

Taking White, his Chief Staff Officer, with him and 
keeping close to the high bank of the beach, in order to 
avoid the shells from Gaba Tepe, which from time to time 
burst over the Cove, Bridges climbed the neck of Little Sri- 
Buran (Queensland Point) into Shrapnel Gully — wounded 
men from the second ridge were already streaming past on 
the way to the beach. Some odd portions of the 2nd Bri- 
gade were in the valley and heavy rifle and machine gun 
fire were still coming from the high ground Baby 700, up- 
on the flat near its mouth — to some stragglers he spoke 
sharply and bade them remember "they were Australians." 

Bridges then moved southwards along the valley and 
up McCay's Hill. When darkness fell that night the troops, 
after being driven off the main ridge, were in a precarious 
position completely hemmed in by a formidable Turkish 
Force, in a country which would have proved difficult even 
in peace manoeuvres — so that all ranks anticipated a 
powerful Turkish counter-attack during the night or at 

The question now arose whether the troops should 
not be withdrawn. Bridges, therefore, signalled about 10 
p.m. to General Birdwood on H.M.S. Queen Elizabeth, 
"General Godley and I both consider that you should come 
ashore at once". This Birdwood did, and was so im- 



pressed himself by the misgivings of all the principal 
officers that he wrote a note at once to Sir Ian Hamilton 
on board H.M.S. Queen Elizabeth. Sir Ian appreciated 
rightly that the Navy could do nothing before dawn, so 
instructed Birdwood to make a supreme effort to hold on. 
"You have got through the difficult business, now you 
have only to dig, dig, dig, until you are safe." And so the 
Anzac Corps continued to hang on, the men in the front 
line completely unaware that even evacuation had been 
thought of. 

Next day Bridges made his way to the summit of Mc- 
Cay's Hill on his southern flank, and after seeing the posi- 
tion there, he pointed out to Lt.-Col. McNicholl, 6th Bat- 
talion, the alignment he wished the troops to occupy in 
that area. Afterwards he moved on and slipped down in- 
to the shallow trench. When he left it he kept low for 
about ten yards and then stood up straight again. It was 
after this, on his way back to the beach, that the 4th Bat- 
talion through a tragic misunderstanding of Bridges' in- 
structions advanced up No Man's Land and was cut to 
pieces — and so the days were passed, the troops impatient 
at delays. Bridges sought positions for his guns in posi- 
tions often only fit for light mountain guns. But he en- 
couraged his artillery to get their 25 pounders up into 
these difficult places — the sappers being ordered to make 
tracks up to these newly chosen sites. There was not a 
section of the line he omitted to visit and he gave instruc- 
tions to straighten the line in the 700 plateau. By his 
conspicuous bravery since the landing Bridges won the 
admiration of all his men. 

On the morning of the 15th May he visited Col. 
Chauvel, commanding First Light Horse Brigade, at the 
head of Monash Valley in General Godley's sector. Some 
hours earlier the 2nd Light Horse Regiment had made a 
gallant but unsuccessful attack from Queen's Post, and the 
Turkish sniping down the valley, in spite of many sandbags 
and other traverses, was causing numerous casualties. 


As Bridges went up the road with Col. White and 
Lieut. Casey, A.D.C., they met Major Glasgow, 1st Light 
Horse, with some of his men, on their way down, who 
warned them to be careful of the next corner, saying, "I 
have lost five men there to-day." Bridges usually exposed 
himself and was inclined to laugh at those of his staff who 
took cover, but on this day Bridges followed the advice 
given. The party ran three or four times between traverses 
until they reached the one below Steeles Post. Behind this 
was the dressing station of Captain Thomson of the 1st 
Battalion. After talking a few minutes with Thomson who 
warned him to be careful Bridges went off by himself, soon 
disappearing in the scrub round a traverse, and his Staff 
were preparing to follow him when there was a sort of 
stir which caused Thomson to run out to find Bridges with 
a huge bullet hole through his thigh. As they carried him 
behind the traverse, he said, "Don't carry me down, I don't 
want any of the stretcher-bearers hit." Col. White had 
the traffic in the gully cleared, so that it would be clear 
to the Turk that the only movement was the carrying 
down of a wounded man, and then the party moved slowly 
to the beach. Bridges was taken at once to the Hospital 
Ship Gascon. But the doctors found the whole blood sup- 
ply of the limb had been cut off, and nothing could save 
his life, but complete amputation at the thigh — an opera- 
tion which at his age of fifty-four must prove fatal. Be- 
fore the Gascon sailed for Alexandria, Bridges knew he 
was dying. His final word to Col. House was that his 
regret should be conveyed to the Minister of Defence, that 
his despatches on the landing were not complete, and he 
was too tired now. He died before the ship reached Egypt. 
His body was brought to Australia and buried on the crest 
of a hill commanding a glorious view of the valley of the 
Molonglo, three or four miles from Canberra. But as a 
writer in the Sydney paper, "Morning Herald", pointed out, 
not because of the magnificient panorama, nor because of 
any particular beauty that nature has given to the site it-

The Headmaster 

On Simday, November 23, the whole School was glad 
to see that the Headmaster's long expected return from 
hospital in Toronto had finally materialized into fact. Mr. 
Ketchum is planning to remain at the School for about a 
week, and then on the doctor's orders, he is taking a much 
deserved rest in the Laurentians to recuperate from his 
serious back operation which was performed near the end 
of October. We are glad to hear that the operation was 
a success, and to know that Mr. Ketchum will soon be with 
us again. 


Mr. Taylor 

The sympathy of the School is extended to the Rev. 
Norman Taylor who was compelled to give up his work at 
the School through illness. Since leaving us early in the 
term he has been undergoing treatment at Christie Street 
Hospital where we hope he will make a rapid recovery. 

Hallowe'en Party 

After Chapel on Thursday, October 31, the annual 
New Boys' Hallowe'en Party got under way. The obstacle 
race, the first event, was breath-taking to say the least. 
Brent started off well but in the last few laps, they fal- 
tered and Bethune finally emerged victorious. In the 
apple-ducking contest the tables were turned, however, and 
Brent won by a considerable margin. 

The chocolate bar hunt was a great success this year 
with a hundred bars being more or less evenly distributed 
among the competitors. 

After the classroom block had been turned upside 
down, the whole School retired to the Hall where quantities 
of delicious refreshments were served. 

A great deal of thanks is due to Mrs. Wilkin, the Pre- 
fects, and the Seniors for a perfect evening's entertain- 

Movies in the Hall 

The first movie this year was shown on Saturday, 
October 5. It was "Tundra", an exciting drama of a fly- 
ing doctor who, when forced down in the Arctic, has en- 
counters with nearly every animal that lives in that region. 
He. however, with the help of two bear-cubs finally over- 
comes his difficulties and fights his way back to civiliza- 


"The Adventures of Chico", however, shown on Octo- 
ber 28, was not such a success. There was a large atten- 
dance for the shorts and news but few besides the Junior 
School saw the finish of the feature. 

The projection is supervised this year by Patterson i 
who is to be congratulated on his handling of the projector. 


For many years there has been an excellent rule that 
all boys in the Senior School must obtain their intermediate 
Life Saving certificates. In this course they learn the 
fundamental methods of rescuing and reviving a drowning 
person. These lessons are undoubtedly of great value in 
later life and also far greater safety is obtained for all 
who use the pool. 

Life Saving Classes have been started for New Boys 
and for a few boys who for various reasons failed to com- 
plete the course last year. These classes are ably instruct- 
ed by the following boys : Chitty, Goering, Patterson i, Dal- 
ley, Maclaren, Conyers i, Prentice, Chester, Deverall, 
Woods i, Huycke. 

Visit of Miss Kilby 

On Saturday, November 16, the School was very 
honoured to hear a recital by Miss Muriel Kilby, the well- 
known yoimg marimbist virtuoso. Accompanied by Miss 
Joyce Kilmaster on the piano, Miss Kilby performed feats 
on her instrument that few of the audience imagined pos- 

The first part of her programme consisted of "Rondo 
alia Turca" by Mozart, "Traumerie" by Schumann, and 
"Perpetuum Mobile" from the Sonata in C major by Weber. 
Following this was heard "Introduction and Rondo Capric- 
cioso" by Saint-Saens, "The Last Spring" by Grieg, and 


Burleska by Josef Suk. After a short intermission, several 
pieces by Chopin were heard followed by "Zigeunerwiesen" 
by Sarasate. The main programme was so appreciated, 
that Miss Kilby was persuaded to add several encores, 
"Moto Perpetuo" by Carl Bone, and the well-known "Danny 

The School would like to thank Miss Kilby and Miss 
Kilmaster for a most enjoyable evening. We look for- 
ward to another visit from them in the very near future. 

Music Appreciation Hours 

On almost ever Friday night of the term so far, all 
the boys who are interested in classical and semi-classical 
music have withdrawn to the Hall for an hour or so, to 
listen to different well-known selections chosen by R. D. 
Butterfield. A very pleasing variety has been presented 
including Grieg's "Piano Concerto", "The Rhapsody in 
Blue", "Peter and the Wolf", "The 1812 Overture" and 
Chopin's "Polonaise". 

These programmes have certainly added much to the 
enjoyment of the music lovers in the School, and a sharp 
increase has been noted in the number of boys attending 
each week, showing the increasing popularity that this 
type of music is enjoying. 

U.C.C. Victory Dinner 

In honour of the First Team's victory over Upper 
Canada the previous Saturday, Mrs. Ketchum gave a din- 
ner for all members of Bigside on Monday, October 21, at 
the Lodge. The sumptuous menu consisted of tomato 
juice, lamb chops, green peas, sweet or mashed potatoes, 
ice cream, cake and coffee. Perhaps the most outstand- 
ing items on the bill of fare were the two cakes. One, a 
large square one had "T.C.S. - 12" on it while the other, a 
small round one, had "U.C.C. - 5" inscribed. The colours 


of the two schools were suitably represented and after the 
larger one had been demolished by Bigside the smaller was 
presented to the Co-Captains, French and Lawson. That 
cake, incidentally, was not kept as a souvenir of the game. 
It was a marvellous meal and the whole squad is deeply 
indebted to Mrs. Ketchum for it. 

The Half Term Break 

At 10.30 a.m. on Friday, November the first, the bells 
pealed, and then in a torrent, everyone fled to buses, cars, 
and trains. The long awaited half-term break had begun! 
Few went east, as most of the School wanted to see the 
Ridley game in Toronto, A number of the boys who re- 
mained at School were able to get up for the game also, 
and on returning spent a pleasant week-end at the Pat Moss 
Ski Camp, revelling in food and sleep. The week-end 
passed all too quickly and before we knew it, Tuesday 
night had come, and back to Port Hope we all trooped, 
some refreshed and others slightly fatigued after what was 
considered by all as one of the better half-term breaks. 

The Dramatic Society 

After the tremendous success of the play "Captain 
Applejack" last year, a Dramatic Society has again been 
formed in the School. The new society has undertaken 
in the first place, at the request of the Headmaster, to 
control (not to dominate) the Christmas Entertainment, 
making sure that all productions are properly rehearsed 
and have at least some literary value. This, it is hoped, 
will make the evening more enjoyable for all who are pre- 
sent. In addition, the society intends to produce a full 
length play at Easter. 

Meetings of the Club are held every fortnight, at which 
plays are read and acting technique discussed. We also 


hope to have speakers visit us and talk on the dramatic 
art. We are only sorry that we could not accept all those 
boys who applied for membership this year. We certainly 
appreciate their interest and their good sportsmanship 
when refused. 

In closing I should like to mention that the Society 
would welcome any contributions in the way of costumes, 
plays and props, as we are short of all these at the moment. 

Remember, your interest means our success. 

The Secretary. 

The Football Dinner 

The Annual Football Dinner was held in the Hall on 
Wednesday, November 27. The Bigside Rugby, Soccer, 
and Oxford Cup teams were present as well as the Cap- 
tains and Vice-Captains of the Middleside, Littleside and 
J.S. teams. 

After an extremely good dinner the Headmaster, who 
has only just returned from hospital, began the speech 
making by proposing a toast to the King. Mr. Hodgetts 
and the Bigside Co-Captains then made speeches, and Law- 
son presented the coach with a walnut coffee table as a 
gift from the whole of Bigside to commemorate a most 
successful season. George Hees, Mr. Bagley, Mr. Hass 
and Mr. Tottenham, as well as the various team repre- 
sentatives made speeches, and toasts were proposed to the 
first Rugby and Soccer teams. Mr. Alley was then asked 
to give his impressions, as a father, of this year's team. 
After this Lawson was presented with the Kerr trophy for 
the most valuable player on Bigside, Brewer was given the 
Kicking and Catching Cup and Cox received the Oxford 

Much thanks is due to Mrs. Wilkin and her assistants 
for providing such a delicious banquet. The evening will 
be remembered as one of the most successful football 
dinners in the history of the School. 



During the past month a great deal of interest has 
centred around our newly formed wireless group. The 
class consists of twenty qualified advanced signallers, 
under the capable instruction of Company Sgt. Major In- 
structor G. F. Turner. We have one No. 19W set and two 
No. 58W sets (walkie-talkies), on loan from District Cadet 
Stores. After lectures on procedure, operation, and some 
experience in tuning and netting the sets, we were inform- 
ed by the Signals A/I that we were expected to go on the 
air, and using key, establish communications with Bow- 
manville and Port Hope High Schools. When the net was 
properly tuned we were to go on RT. We did this and 
worked Bowmanville, a distance of over twenty miles, per- 
fectly. Since then we have been in communication several 
times, and if our batteries were not so easily discharged 
many more messages would be passed. 

On October 26 our football game with Saint Andrew's 
was broadcast to the boys who were in the School hospital. 
This was followed up by the broadcast of the Ridley game, 
played on Upper Canada's grounds on November 4. The 
Headmaster was ill in the Toronto General Hospital and 
was anxious to hear the game. A short wave receiver was 
obtained (an ordinary radio set which would receive on 
six to eight megacycles), and the Headmaster and boys 


who were unable to attend the game were given a running 
commentary from the field. 

Needless to say, the sets are in constant demand 
among the boys of the class during their free afternoons; 
Major Batt and one of the boys, taking one of the two 
walkie-talkies in a car, and maintaining contact with the 
other set back at School, were able to obtain perfect recep- 
tion up to four miles. The interest among the boys out- 
side the class is shown by their enthusiasm for advanced 
signals, since the class is limited to those who have quali- 
fied in this subject. 

We are losing the sets for awhile now, but we hope to 
get them back again. The hockey season will soon be 
starting and the boys are looking forward to broadcasting 
these games.

The Little Big Four. These words affect the athletic 
side of our general school life more, perhaps, than any 
others. From September to November in four Ontario 
schools, football players go through a gruelling training 
programme designed to prepare them for three all-im- 
portant games. In three thrilling weeks the games are 
played before thousands of spectators and faithful Old 

The Little Big Four Football Championship is an 
annual football struggle between the Little Big Four 
Schools: Bishop Ridley ColJege, St. Andrew's College, 
Upper Canada College and, of course, T.C.S. We had in 
previous years played annual matches with Upper Canada 
and Ridley but on October 15, 1902, we played S.A.C. for 
the first time and thus the league now known as the Little 
Big Four Football League was bom. For a time it was 
known as the Inter-Scholastic Football League with the 
term "Little Big Four" first appearing in connection with 



rugby in a 1910 issue of the "Record". Since its inception 
the schedule has been played regularly every year with the 
exception of 1918. when an influenza epidemic in Toronto 
prevented our playing any outside matches, and 1928 when 
the School fire forced us to move to Woodstock. 

During these years we have had only four champion- 
ship teams. Our first victory came in 1908 when G. C. 
(Pete) Campbell captained the team through the schedule 
undefeated. The next was in 1910 when we carried off the 
crown under the captaincy of N. H. Macaulay. In 1911 we 
won for the third time in four years with Harry Symons 
as captain. In 1934 our first team was carried through 
without one defeat in any game by E. Cochran, captain, 
and Mr. Milton Burt, coach. 

Between 1911 and 1934 were twenty-three hard seasons 
when no championship came to Port Hope. From 1920 to 
1925 we did not win a single Little Big Four football game. 
After 1925 there were a few fairly successful seasons when 
we won two out of the three games. In 1930 we finished 
in a triple tie for first place. Since 1934, Ridley has won 
every year with the exception of 1939 and 1945 when S.A.C. 
took the title. In 1945 we shared a three-way second place 
tie. This year the growing spirit and enthusiasm made us 
forget our original misgivings about light, inexperienced 
players, and Bigside won every game except the Ridley 
game. The interest and support of the School this season 
was noticed more than it had been for many years. 

Good hard, clean football teaches more than how to 
kick a ball. It teaches teamwork, co-operation, co-ordina- 
tion of mind and action and provides healthful exercise. 
The participants leave the field better mentally and 
physically for having played. Little Big Four football is 
recognized all over Ontario by men who know clean high 
school football at its best, played for the sake of the game 
with true sportsmanship, not for the all-out purpose of 
winning only. For these reasons we look to the Little Big 
Four to carry on its traditions and what they represent. 

— J. A. Powell, Form VIA. 



ROBERTSON, R. W. S.— Robbie was not one of those who 
win a great deal of acclaim, yet he was most useful and 
necessary in the daily running of the School. He was 
not an athlete but participated with a great deal of en- 
thusiasm in all games — something which is difficult to do 
when you have no great talent for sports. Always quiet 
and unobtrusive, he had a friendly smile and helping 
hand for anyone. He was a most efficient head librarian, 
did yeoman work as business manager of the Record, and 
in recognition of these services he was promoted to a 
senior last year. Though unspectacular, his high stan- 
dard of efficiency in School duties has made it difficult 
to replace him. Good luck, Robbie. 

MALLOCK, F. D.— Dave arrived at T.C.S. back in '42 and 
quickly settled in for a successful stay. Although very 
able, he was under a handicap in the athletic field being 
slightly under average size. Consequently his abounding 
energies found vent in long bicycle rides, walks in the 
country, and in the felling of trees. He played Middle- 
side soccer, was on the Record staff, and in his final 
year was head House Officer of Brent. But Sam's 
greatest success lay in the academic field. He was al- 
ways one of the younger boys in his class, and his final 
year here, though spent in acquiring the few remaining 
subjects for his senior matric, was principally occupied 
in hard study for the Royal Naval College entrance 
exams, which he wrote last May and distinguished him- 
self by coming second out of the forty-five candidates. 
Thus Sam now resides at R.N.C., B.C., and our best 
wishes go with him. 


O'GRADY, D. M.— In 1942 the United States entered the 
War, and Lefty O'Grady entered Trinity College School. 
These world shattering events seem to have little in com- 
mon, but they both turned out for the best. Although 
small, Lefty had a physique seldom witnessed in this 
world and was as tough as wartime gum. As captain 
he led a determined Middleside team of '44 through a 
rugged season. His bone-crushing tackles and lightning 
runs will long be remembered. But his main love was 
gym. work. When he was not wandering about trying 
to find a coat big enough to fit his shoulders and stUl 
not touch the ground he was up in the gym. flying 
around the high bar. It is said that he spent so much 
time on his hands that he forgot how to tie his shoes. 
Because of a knee injury Lefty had to give up all sports 
and spend his time working and coaching. In his quiet 
way he contributed greatly to the School life. Thus in 
his last year he was made a House Officer. We all 
thank him and heartOy wish him success at Northern 

HAWKE, D. W. — It took Dave two years to get a nick- 
name which he is bound to carry for a long whUe. How 
he got the name of "Rooster" is still to many, (but not 
Moose and Tank) a mystery. However, we must here 
say that Rooster came to Bethune House in '43 and soon 
showed his versatility in the field of sports. He climaxed 
his final year by making first teams in football, hockey 
and cricket. He was a strong tenor in the choir, and 
was appointed a house officer for his all-round contri- 
bution to school life. One of Rooster's favourite pas- 
times was to amuse a bevy of admirers, especially a 
certain "Moose" of doubtful fame. However, he took 
these things in his stride just as he did his studies. We 
were sorry to see him go, but he is now taking a shot 


at his honour matric at Cantab, and the best wishes of 
the School go with him. 

STOKES. R. P.— "Stoker", Brazil's gift to T.C.S., ambled 
into Brent House in '41, after spending three years in 
the J.S. Irwin's successor as School electrician, he ably 
carried out his responsibilities in supervising stage light- 
ing and the movies in the hall (despite the many un- 
planned intermissions). Though not outstanding in 
school work, he tried hard and in his last year was in VS. 
This very perseverance brought him success on the foot- 
ball field as a dependable fighting inside on Bigside for 
two years in a row. In track, he came first last year in 
the Senior High Jump at the Inter-School track meet in 
Toronto. Many a T.C.S. Middleweight boxer has felt the 
sharp sting of his fast jabbing blows and in his last 
year he was champion in his weight. For many years he 
was also a stalwart bass in the choir and as photographer 
for the Record he did an excellent job last year. For his 
steady dependability he was made a house officer. We 
hope he will have less trouble with his work in Brazil 
than he had with the temperamental movie projector 

CROWE, C. — Kit, after a very successful sojourn in the 
Junior School, graduated, and from then on he was seen 
wandering through the halls of Brent House. He was 
in the Senior School three years and during this time 
he made himself an enviable record. He was a member 
of Middleside Gym. in his first two years, and only 
through an injury did he miss the peak of success — the 
first football team. He was also credited with being 
something of a "brain" and he always made the "A" 
forms. His secret of success was determination. Kit 
would have had a very successful year had he returned, 
but his qualities were recognized, and he was seized by 


the Department of Education for the teaching profession 
from which he is going on to University. So long, Kit, 
and the best of luck to you in the future. 

DOBELL, W. M. — Bill was one of the boys that came to 
us from Selwyn House in 1943. He left us three years 
later, a Sixth Former, a House Officer and a most en- 
thusiastic member of the Political Science Club. "Wong" 
also took an active part in School sports, excelling 
especially in track. He was on both Middleside rugby 
and hockey and in addition played an enviable game at 
tennis and squash. Billy was as well somewhat of a 
"brain". Despite his remark before the final history 
exam in June, "I don't know what's coming off in this 
stuff", he managed to be one of the few that pulled off 
a first class honour. Bill left many friends at T.C.S. 
May he make as many and be as successful at McGill. 

DURNFORD, J. W. — "Duncan" was one more of the be- 
wildered New Boys of '43, and one more of the hard 
House Officers of '46. Always a fiendish (to put it 
mildly) worker, "Dunk" certainly earned the title of 
"brain". He was especially famous for his elaborate 
preparation of "devoirs" in French. Needless to say, 
he won the French prize on Speech Day despite a long 
period of illness for the most part of the Trinity term. 
"Dugan" was no athlete, but he certainly earned this title 
of fiend also on Middleside soccer (someone once likened 
him to an express train). But "Dunk's" main achieve- 
ment was as business manager of the Record. He type- 
wrote absolutely everything for the Record last year, 
and found time to sort and file all the old copies of the 
Record as well as the photographic plates. It would be 
impossible to count the number of hours he spent slaving 
in the Record room, but a moderate estimate would be 


four hours daily. "Dugan" certainly earned the prize 
for valuable assistance on the Record staff which he won 
on Speech Day. He is now at McGill studjnng — amazing, 
what? — but Dunk just wouldn't be Dunk if he wasn't 

HALLWARD, J. M. — "Huge Henry" was his nickname 
when he joined the boys of Brent in September '43, and 
an appropriate name it was, for Johnny tipped the scales 
at close to seventy-five pounds and towered to almost 
four-and-a-half feet in height. He soon made himself 
well-known by his somewhat over-impetuous nature. On 
account of his lack of bulk, he could not "buck the line", 
or "body check the forwards" but Johnny more than 
made up for this in other activities. Always a great 
talker (to say the least!) he was a fine debater, and was 
one of the three to represent T.C.S. in the debate against 
U.C.C. Last year he was Vice President of the Dramatic 
Society, and an accomplished actor, both on and off the 
stage. He spent many a weary hour in the depths of 
the library under the eagle eye of Mr. Maier doing much 
unsung work there for the School. As literary editor 
of the "Record" he did a commendable job, and proved 
that he well deserved the position by winning the Lieu- 
tenant Governor's Silver Medal for English on Speech 
Day. Besides all this, he was Secretary of the Political 
Science Club and a Sacristan. Johnny was best known 
for his terrific talent as a "gowl lasher". For this, (and 
all the other virtues), he was awarded House Officer 
Privileges. Johnny is now in Switzerland learning to 
speak German and French, and he writes that he is 
neither smoking nor drinking but is saving all his energy 
so as to be able to administer suitable punishment to all 
and sundry when he visits us again next Easter. You 
can't keep a good man down, can you, Johnny? 


LEHMAN. G. W. — Some people never learn that they have 
made a mistake until it is too late. However, Jeff Leh- 
man, being an exception to this rule, left Selwyn House 
to come to T.C.S. in January, 1944. The School life 
seemed to agree with Jeff for he took an active part in 
many things. He was a good soccer player, winning his 
colours in his last year. Jeff was not a natural hockey 
player but he played the game every winter with dogged 
determination. His cricket abilities came to the fore in 
the summer term. He played on Middleside in his 
second year but in his last year he decided his studies 
came first and gave up a good chance for Bigside. 
"Looie", as the Montrealers called him, was what is 
termed a "bright boy" winning the English and Latin 
prizes and obtaining five firsts in his Senior Matric. He 
also was a member of the Political Science Club. All in 
all Jeff led a full life at T.C.S. and proved to be one of 
the saner people to come here. For these contributions 
to the School he received the promotion to House Officer. 
-We are sure that he will have the same success at McGill 
that he had here. 

PALMER, W. H. M.— Wilf left the noble institution of Sel- 
wyn House and came to T.C.S. in the Fall of '43. He 
left here last June better educated (we hope) after 
acquiring many new friends. In the interim, Wilf led a 
full, useful life and for this became a House Officer. He 
could usually be foimd either planning or executing some 
novel idea yet seemed despite this a level-headed in- 
dividual. Not a notable athlete, he played on Middle- 
side soccer and did a fine job in last year's gruelling Ox- 
ford Cup race despite the loss of a shoe part way around. 
His extra-curricular activities included the Choir and the 
Record staff and in both of these he was invaluable. He 
was, of course, a good student and found little trouble 
in getting his matric last year. He is now successfully 



beginning a career at McGill. We're confident that "Our 
boy Wilf" won't fail us at McGill. 

GRIER, D. S.— Dave came to T.C.S. in the Fall of '43 
violently pro-American, and left last year with his ideas 
slightly tempered down, but nevertheless still dominant 
in thought if not in speech. Dave's main activity was 
football where he starred on a fighting Middleside team 
of two years ago. Last year, however, he gave up a 
sure position on Bigside in order to devote more time 
to his studies. To take the place of his favorite game 
he became a devoted member of the Choir and of the 
smoker, taking a fairly prominent part in both. In the 
summer term he was appointed R.Q.M.S. of the Cadet 
Corps and carried out his duties in an approved fashion. 
When not doing cadet work he dabbled in cricket though 
it more closely resembled baseball, and was on the 
famous Middleside Sluggers XI. As an acknowledgement 
of his capabilities he was made a House Officer in his 
last year. Dave has now gone on to College "back home" 
where he hopes to take up Medicine. Good luck to a 
friend from across the border. 

TAYLOR, G. O.— In the Fall of '44 a group of well-fed 
boys arrived claiming Timmins as their native city. 
Among this lot (all of which descended unmercifully on 
Brent House) was one George Taylor about whom this 
effort is intended to be. Were I an artist this task 
would be a good deal easier as George's bulk, his mass 
of hair and permanent grin speak much more eloquently 
than words. Unfortunately I'm not and so I must fall 
back on the written word. Our hero acquired the name 
"Oboe" from his larger playmate, Hart Drew, and by this 
he was known for the rest of his days here. A soccer 
and basketball player of the "phoom" type he did credit-

n - 




ably in both though his main object while here (strange 
as it seems) was his school work. He came out of his 
cave (meaning, of course, the smoker) in the spring 
long enough to take a look at cricket and with a puzzled 
sigh went back to his work. Oboe distinguished him- 
self in the ring in his final year and after keeping 
"Killer" Cox at bay for four rounds he won the Brad- 
bum Cup jointly with his opponent. For all his work 
around the School, and for his all-round geniality George 
became a House Officer and in this capacity left us last 
June. All's well that ends well, Oboe! 

CARHARTT. W. S.— Bill Carhartt came to T.C.S. in the 
Summer term of 1944. The School became aware of two 
things: Irvine, Kentucky, the home of all great souther- 
ners, and Carhartt's manufactured overalls. In his sec- 
ond year Bill was a lineman on Littleside rugby and 
played bigside basketball. In his final year Bill was a 
member of VS and a strong supporter of the smoker. 
He won his Bigside Basketball colours and was leading 
scorer on the team. Last summer one would frequently 
hear a shout of fore! and a golf ball would whizz over- 
head and out onto bigside cricket pitch. After trying 
his hand at cricket, he went back to hard ball — the game 
of men. Bill was made a House Officer after Christmas, 
fully deserving this promotion. Our southern colonel 
left these hallowed walls last year and is now attending 
that seat of learning that we all heard so much about — 
University of Kentucky. 

CALDBICK, J. H.— "Butch" arrived from the north in '44 
and in his own quiet way contributed his talents to the 
life of the School for the two years he was here. A hard 
worker on the Record staff, he was its chief wit and in 
his last year won the Gavin Ince Langmuir prize for the 


best article contributed to the Record. A good deal of 
his time was devoted to his vocal talents. For two years 
he was in the tenor section of the choir and in his last 
year his interpretation of Mabel in the Pirates of Pen- 
zance was one of its features. The rest of his time was 
divided between the smoke-screened crew of the Smokers 
of which he was a proud member, and the Timmins "fra- 
ternity" in Middle Flat Brent. In his last year he was 
a member of VS — S for scholarship he claimed. Before 
he left he was made a house officer and his quiet but 
witty manner won him many friends. We wish him the 
best of luck with his Senior Matric at Timmins High. 

RIDDELL, S. C— Diddle entered the hallowed walls of 
Brent House in 1943 along with the other graduates from 
the Junior School, after spending two and one half years 
in this lower seat of learning. Did, as many of his 
friends called him, although no star in studies, was an- 
other of the School's very fine gymnasts, spending two 
years on the first gym. eight. He also dabbled lightly 
in rugby making the Middleside twelve in his last year 
with us. If you couldn't find Did in the gym., he would 
most certainly be with his two cronies. Gill and Whitty, 
jabbering a wild unintelligible jargon of his own brew- 
ing. With his smiling countenance and wild laughter, 
Diddle is numbered among the noble ranks of Trinity's 
school characters. In his last year here, as a member 
of VC, Did was made a House Officer. "The Did Kid" 
succeeded in his naval college exams and he is now out 
at Royal Roads learning the life of a sailor. The best 
of luck to you, Did, in your new surroundings. 

EVEREST, B. B.— Although only a new boy last year, his 
brief career at T.C.S. turned out extraordinarily well. 
We first remember him one night two weeks after School 



began, walking into Chapel with his characteristic gait 
and wearing what looked like a Ridley tie. Our doubts 
were soon dispelled, however, and he began immediately 
to adapt himself here, with a great deal of success. He 
played on the first soccer team and received half team 
colours. He then migrated to the basketball court where 
he did nobly on a continuously outplayed junior team. 
In the spring he even played cricket and under the varied 
coachings of different people ended up on the first squad 
though not quite the first XI. All this while we have 
neglected to mention the classroom, yet it is here that 
he really shone. Although a member of VIB, he came 
very close to winning the Chancellor's prize and then 
went on during the upper school exams to get by far 
the best marks in the School. All in all, not a bad year's 
work. Keep it up Brian, boy.

A Tragedy in One Act (with apologies to W. Shake- 
speare) . 

Scene I — The cloisters of Clams Castle commonly call- 
ed MacBethune House. Three washerwomen bendeth over 
a cauldron of boiling cider. 

All three: Double, double, toil and trouble, 
In the cauldron boil and bubble, 
Essence of a soiled sock 
In the cauldron slush and slock; 
Underwear from Bigside game 
Bequest of French of rugby fame; 
Chicken bones and orange peel 
From the mess that was their meal; 
Hoards of rubbish piled in hills 
From beneath their window sills; 
Geoffery Taylor's smooth hand lotion 
Will complete our magic potion. 
First Wash: Sisters, 'tis well known to you all why we 
gather thus. 

Second Wash: Forsooth, we have a midnight meeting. 
Third Wash: Here we shall speak with Bruore, that 
once noble chieftain of MacBethune tribe. 

First Wash: Hark, he cometh, I discern a shadow. 
(Enter Bruore, sloppily clad, typical of MacBethune's 
form of garb.) 

Second Wash: Ho there, degenerate one, we would'st 
have a word with thee. 


First Wash: Thou and thy clan hast been the centre 
of our dreams of late. Tarry and thou shalt see and hear 
of which we speak, O thou from Bermuder. Firstly, we 
shall conjure up an apparition. (Apparition appeareth, 
being a football with power of speech). 

First App. : Howzer Hupper, Rowdy Dow, Rippy Tippy. 
Chest muster clow. 

For a time you shall win 

Soccer, Rugby and all their kin, 

But wait, wait until MacBrent doth roll. 

Victory, then, will be their goal. 

Once again will I repeat 

MacBethune, thou shalt meet defeat! 

Bruore: No, no, no, no! ! 

(A second apparition appeareth. It is the tribe of 
MacBrent, the traditional enemies of MacBethune. They 
are an intelligent group, each man beareth himself as a 
living being. Herein lieth the subtle difference between 
the two tribes. All the MacBrent clan pointeth their fingers 
at Bruore.) 

Bruore: No, take them away! Why must you plague 
me thus? 

First Wash: MacBethune's fate is sealed, you are a 
sc rummy lot. 

Second Wash: Have not MacBrent such as Lord Panet? 

First Wash: Verily, a true MacBrentite, he hateth 
closing windows, especially at an early hour. 

Second Wash: And that noble clansman, Sir Herbert 
Mclntrye, he who is built like a brick storehouse? 

First Wash: There is, as well, Jonathan Ray, Post- 
master General for MacBrent. 

Second Wash: Take heed, thou art no match for 
Richard Gaunt, Sir Robert Jarvis, the noble Wilfred Cur- 
tis. These are their able leaders. 

First Wash : Beware those who runneth for MacBrent. 
There is "Touch" Wood, Michael Wright, Doctor Chester 
and Gordon Payne, speedy couriers all! 


Second Wash: Intellect in MacBrent doth abound; Sir 
Ronald Watts and Lord Williamson therein reign supreme. 

First Wash : Have they not Rickaby, the Duke of Oak- 
ville, not to mention Bolingbroke Alley commonly known as 
"Holing" Alley and Samuel Brooks of Babblington who hast 
been called "Babbling" Brooks. Ye gods, 'twould be 
tedious to list the noble MacBrentites. 

Second Wash: Thus thou canst see why MacBethune 
is doomed. Thou hast won, to now, all Soccer and even 
that side of rugby called Middle. However, evil things 
lurketh to pounce upon thee and MacBethune shall see 
ruin ere long. 

Third Wash: It seemeth to me that the lines in this 
play are not fairly and evenly divided. 

First Wash: Thou must needs have a Union card. 

All Three: Bruore, MacBethune, Bruore — beware! 
Things are so bad that Kilroy wasn't there. 
From bad to worse, from bad to worse things are in a mess 
In the words of a MacBethunite 
They "couldn't care much less". (Bruore fadeth out). 

Scene n — Oxford Cup track — 

(Alarums, enter spectators. Trumpets sound approach 
of contestants. More alarums.) 

Spectator: It seemeth that Nelson MacNab Stewart, 
that valiant Scot, seemeth a little off key of late.. Mayhap 
it be a wedding. 

(Contestants start race. Alarums. Contestants finish 
race, respectively; best coming first, second best coming 
second, etc. More alarums as MacBrent is adjudged the 

A MacBethunite: This is most alaruming. (Alarums. 
Flourish of trumpets. Exeunt.) 

Scene III — Campus of a well-known school. It is a 
foul day, being everywhere mud. (Enter the rugby teams 
of MacBrent and MacBethune. Flourish. Alarums and 


Rufus: Howser Hupper! 
French: Lay on, MacBrent! 
MacBethime cheering section: 
Qu'est-ce que c'est 
Qu'est-ce que c'est 
Qu'est-ce que c'est que ca 
MacBethune, MacBethune, Rah, Rah, Rah. 
(Both teams play, MacBrent wins.) 
Bruore: Methinks that we have greatly suffered at 
the hands of these Scotsmen. But I see yet more to come 
and woe betide MacBethune. 

Scene IV — Clams Castle (Stagger in Bruore). 

Bruore: Lost, all is lost! I am aghast! MacBethune. 
thou hast gone through two stinging defeats in the last 
few days. Those three knew well the fate that thou 
wouldst see. (An individual entereth, he panteth for air.) 

Individual: There are disastrous plots afoot. 'Tis 
rumoured that one amongst us hath turned traitor. He 
hath run himself a bath and what is worse intendeth to 
bathe therein. 

Bruore: 'Sblood, no good will come of this. Being a 
MacBethunite, he is inexperienced in ways of handling 
baths. Zounds, we are undone; a traitrous fiend is in our 

Individual: Look, sire! Water creepeth about the floor 
and riseth. Gadzooks! it must be that he canst not turn 
the water off, the taps hath rusted from disuse. (Water 
riseth to their chins). 

Bruore: We must needs do something of drastic 
nature. The ultimate sacrifice is required (to Indiv.) 
Openeth the vdndows! (Alarums. Indiv. dieth of shock.) 

Bruore: (trying to open windows) They sticketh! ! 
'Tis of no use, we shall perish. MacBethune, thou hast 
seen the last of thy sinners, (he drowneth).

A shadowy figure crept down the stairs, peered up and 
down the darkened corridor, and glanced at the clock which 
read 11.30 p.m. Seeing that the coast was clear, he padded 
softly down the hall, stopped in front of a door and entered, 
closing it softly behind him. 

The room was dark except for a slight glow which 
emanated from a photograph on the desk. The only noise 
heard was that of four or five boys who were struggling 
furtively on the floor, while three or four others stood 
around silently watching and sometimes jumping up and 
down on any arms or legs which protruded from the 
maelstrom. The unknown visitor stood by the door watch- 
ing these events, and tried to discern some of the scrambled 
voices and figures in the room. Suddenly a small form 
was propelled from the pile and through the window, 
laughing insanely and hideously as he left. "Ah", cried 
our hero to himself, "Tony Wells". As he spoke, a hand 
reached out of the heap on the floor, grabbed a part of the 
bed and twisted it to an unrecognizable mass. "Nort Cox", 
breathed the watcher and wrote down the two names. All 
at once, above the muffled roar of the fight, the gnawing 
of teeth was heard, followed soon after by a cry of "tim- 
ber", as a table leg crashed to the floor. "Let me see," 
mused our scout, "Wood, beaver, eager beaver — Ian Camp- 
bell!" and he quickly jotted down the name. As he spoke 
an enormously muscled figure leapt into the fray, knock- 
ing his opponents right and left. Our "school-boy Super- 
man" was at work again, thus the name of Bill Brewer 
was added to the ever-growing list. 

As the struggle progressed, a high-pitched Yankee 
accent was heard extolling the U.S.A., and Concord in 
particular, before his soap-box was knocked from beneath 
him and he toppled over into the melee; then someone's 
face which faintly resembled that of a famous movie star 
called "Van", was silhouetted against the window for an 


instant. This time the names of Jack French and Nev. 
Conyers were written down hastily. A figure then emerged 
from the conglomeration of bodies, gave it a haughty stare 
and stalked from the room. It was Fennell not caring less 
again. Suddenly the room was lighted by the brilliant 
glare of a flash-bulb as Steve Baker snapped the scene. 
"Look for it in the Record!" he cried. In the sudden light 
two figures were seen huddled over a desk, one doing Latin 
and the other writing a letter with a well-known ( ! ) 
fiendish gleam in his eye. A closer examination revealed 
the addressee to be a lady called Liz. The names of Nogi 
Newcomb and Geoff (censored) Taylor were thus placed 
on the now quite long list. 

Just then the sound of a peculiar reed instrument was 
heard outside in the corridor. The door opened and in 
marched a procession, all in step, singing lustily and led 
by a musician (! ? !) playing "Clarinet Marmalade". His 
followers consisted of a well-fed, rotund, rosy-cheeked lad 
whose hands kept opening and shutting automatically as 
if trying to grab something; another lad, who had both of 
his hands in casts and was continually using them as clubs 
— very effectively, too; then one singing in a nasal tone 
to the accompaniment of an out-of-tune guitar; another 
who bore a slight resemblance to a Winnipeg gold-eye 
(fish) ; and finally a tall, bow-legged disjointed brute imita- 
ting ( ?) a maniac. Our spy quickly jotted down the names 
of (Jerry Pearson, Tank-tubby ii-Armour, H. P. Goodbody. 
Dickie Butterfield, Chuck Campbell and Stu Bruce. Chuck- 
ling fiendishly, he declared in a loud voice to the quite 
startled company, "All of you have eight quartuhs each, 
now return to youh beds!" His policy thus announced, the 
M.O.D. left the room. Such is life on the Bethune bottom 
flat — one big happy family.

From the first moment I laid eyes on Hillhouse I loved 
the place — loved the blue mountains surrounding it; the 
green woods with their winding pine-scented trails; the 
landscape when in its autunm pattern of colour; and the 
pure whiteness of the snow on a frosty-fresh winter day. 

In the summer it was my joy to walk in the woods 
with my mother, over trails cushioned with pine needles 
and to admire the variation of toadstools and berries that 
grew alongside, or watch a full-mouthed chipmunk scamper 
into his lair in a rock wall. I used to love to pick the rasp- 
berries and blackberries of the garden for supper. After 
the meal, the whole family would go up to the hill behind 
the house, to watch the sun sink below the mountains, 
more beautiful now than ever, in their pink and blue even- 
ing haze. 

But we children appreciated all seasons alike, for we 
had few worries and joys were ahead all the year round. 
Late summer with its lush, red tomatoes and yellow com 
blended into autumn, which produced the fruits of the 
farmer's yearly toil. The falling of leaves was accom- 
panied by big tasty apples and then the tangy cider accom- 
panied the cold nip in the air. This announced winter with 
a shrill wind that whistled through the forest and warned 
all animals to prepare. With winter came Christmas, 


skating on the pond and sleighing, all to the tune of tink- 
ling bells and happy singing. But it was not long before 
winter melted into spring and the slushy season brought 
syrup from the maple trees and then sugar from the syrup. 
At last, with a splendid flourish of green, spring heralded 
summer once again. 

K one can ever really love a place. I am that person, 
and even if I were to keep writing for many years, I could 
not relate all the joys I have found at Hillhouse; for I 
associate Hillhouse with this love of life and nature. 

And yet, there is a certain air of fear and mystery 
about the place that I have felt since early childhood .... 
a fear which grew on me more every year that I lived there. 
I have, in these later years, tried to analyse it, and after 
many thoughtful hours have come to a conclusion. I will 
start at the very beginning 

It was late autumn when I was but seven years old. 
The leaves had fallen from the trees and all the country- 
side was bare and bleak, silently av/aiting winter. I awoke 
early one morning and arose to shut my bedroom window. 
What I saw on the lawn startled me. One of the farm- 
hands was behind a tree aiming a high-powered rifle at 
some large animal, not fifty feet away. At first I was in 
doubt as to what animal it was, but as it moved I recog- 
nized it as a bear. I had only seen pictures of bears and 
on seeing a live one so close and for the first time, I was 
more than a little shaken. The booming shot that follow- 
ed came so unexpectedly that I jumped back a few feet 
from the window, and my heart seemed to leave my breast. 
The shell had obviously hit the bear, and before the man 
could shoot again, the animal had limped off on all fours 
into the woods that fringed the lawn. Then the cold pene- 
trated me and I jumped back into bed, determined to say 
nothing of what I had seen, for I knew the grown-ups would 
be worried if they realized I had witnessed such a scene. 

Less than a week later I heard something that was to 
be deeply unprinted on my young mind. It was after 


breakfast and my mother and father were talking in the 
living-room, unaware that I was listening outside the door. 
I am now sorry that I ever heard those words. My father 
said that the day before, not two miles away from our 
farm, a man had been killed in the woods by a limping 
bear, which had attacked him for no apparent reason. My 
mother was warned to keep the children away from the 
woods until the bear was found and killed. The bear was 
never found and the scare wore off, but the whole incident 
was firmly branded on my mind. This, coupled with the 
death of my mother which followed only a few weeks 
later, I believe are the roots of this fear I have of Hill- 

Since then, every little unusual incident that occurred 
was to be a cause for some unaccountable fear. After I 
heard wildcats crying on the lawn at night and saw their 
clawmarks on the ground the next morning, I was hesitant 
to sleep or walk in the woods, alone. I loved the tales of 
the old aunts, legends of Indians and wild animals, but T 
could not help feeling a little disturbed by them and they 
set me to thinking at night. Hillhouse itself, with its roll- 
ing green lawns, rock garden and solitary apple tree in 
front, is plain enough, but there are certain things within 
the house itself that I began to notice and which produced 
an effect on me. The painting at the head of the stairs, 
of my mother when she was young, clothed in a rather 
melancholy dress, I began to imagine as a portrait of some 
unfortunate of the storybooks such as Anne Boleyn. After 
my mother's death I hesitated to enter her room, for no 
apparent reason except that I felt it still haunted by her 
presence. I now disliked the atmosphere of the house in a 
thunderstorm — dark as it was naturally, and made eerie 
by the long shadows thrown by the light of the gas lamps. 
In less than a year I had become a very nervous and timid 
child. And yet, in spite of my fears of Hillhouse, I still 
loved the place. 


This summer, the first in many years, I have returned 
to Hillhouse and because I am much older, I now realize 
there is nothing to be afraid of in the woods. But when 
I walk up the stairs and am met by the eyes of my mother's 
portrait, or when I enter her room, my childhood fears 
come rushing back to me, and I become extremely uneasy. 
I have, by logical reasoning and with a calm mind, tried 
to overcome these fears. I cannot. I know now, if I were 
to live at Hillhouse for the rest of my life, I would surely 
be driven mad.

I was in no way good. In people's eyes 
I was a rascal. Friends and enemies 
Alike looked not for virtue in my life, 
But rather for my faults. They never saw 
The house I gave, in which to put the chair 
Of their donation, neither did they thank 
The soil for the abundance of their crop, 
But ever emphasized those faults I had, 
Making them seem to shadow out all good. 
If therefore they disdained me while I lived, 
Now that I live not, let them still disdain, 
Not falsely praise my waning memory 
In politic affection. Let them not 
With looks of sorrow and with wagging heads 
Stand on street comers, lying to the world. 
May you who do remember me in truth 
Think on my sins, remember me by them. 
Lest, by my good, so little thought should die. 

— R. D. Butterfield, Form VTA. 



He stood looking down at the body. Why? Why had 
he done it? Peter, his friend — his only friend. A feeling 
of nausea came over him and he felt very faint. Every- 
thing swam before his eyes — how useless it all seemed. 
Why not rest? He would die soon and it would be all over. 
He felt very tired 

"Yeah, I know chief, I know!" Detective Sergeant 
Rowland spoke fretfully, "No one would bump off a guy 
and then stay with his corpse unless he was nuts. But the 
fella ain't nuts .... we had him psycho-analysed. A per- 
son's brain may snap from reaction, but even then, who 
would remain on the floor two feet from his victim for 
eight hours until he was discovered and arrested?" 

"Well, ignoring that, it's an open and shut case. His 
fingerprints are on the gun, he confesses to the murder, 
wants no lawyer, enters no plea and he put up no fight 
when the patrolman arrested him. I'm afraid he hasn't a 
chance. He will be convicted of first degree murder". The 
w^hite-haired chief of police acted as if the whole thing 
were finished. He had seen many strange and tragic things 
in his life and he felt no emotion. 


The trial was over. In the cell block the convicted 
murderer, sentenced to die in the electric chair, sat on his 
cot staring at the bare cement wall ahead of him. How 
unreal it all seemed! Yet, conversely, it seemed very real. 
He had remembered it all when the policeman's hand had 
roughly shaken him out of his stupor and he had been told 
he was under arrest. 

The army medics in the California hospital had told 
him he had war nerves which were the cause of his strange 
loss of self-possession and faith in himself. When, at 
Two Jima, he had seen his buddies killed on either side of 
him and felt their broken bodies beneath his feet as he 
charged, this strange feeling of self pity had come upon 


him. Why, he wondered, had he not been killed? He. a 
small fragment of a vast army, so many of which had met 
a violent death. Marie, his wife, and their small child, 
they, his most dearly beloved, had been killed by a Japanese 
bomb at Pearl Harbour, and why not he? He was such a 
tiny atom, alone now in a vast, cold world. 

Upon his release from hospital he had travelled back 
to his native state of New York to obtain a job. His 
former friends shunned him, a shadow of his old self, 
a man with a frightful inferiority complex and a bad 
nervous condition. He had taken to drink and could not 
find employment. Then he met Peter Gregory, a veteran 
of the war — a happily married man with no scars of battle 
who had a good job. Peter had befriended him. 

One night, feeling wretched and miserable, he had met 
Peter in the street. They had talked together and then 
gone to Gregory's house. There he had learned all about 
Peter and his success upon his return from war. A mad 
jealousy had possessed him; he had fought it momentarily 
to no avail. As if hypnotized, he had risen from his seat, 
drawn his service revolver, and shot Peter six times in the 
face. He did not really know why he had done it. He 
knew that as he fired he was controlled only by his warp- 
ed brain with its grim complex. Why, he had thought, 
has this man escaped death in battle and why have I? But 
we will not live — no, it is not right. We are no better than 
our dead brothers. He had fired the shots and fallen for- 
ward unconscious. Upon recovering his senses he had re- 
mained apathetically beside the body on the floor. Mrs. 
Gregory had come in much later, and screamed for help. 
Grood, he had thought, now I will die. 

Here were the chaplain and warden. The cell door 
opened and with no apparent interlude he found himself 
strapped in the electric chair. He thought of his past 
life with all its frustration, and he knew that he was not 
sorry to go.

I grasped the reins; I held them tight, — 
Then plunged my spurs into her side 
And off we galloped, leaving far 
Behind the cares I could not hide. 

We rode out through the southern gate; 
We gathered speed; we charged along; 
The road flew by beneath my feet, 
And feeling free I sang a song. 

I sang a song of free lands where 
The cares I knew were all unknown: 
Where men like me lived carefree lives 
Like sailors going where they're blown. 

We galloped farther still; the road 
Turned left, but I kept straight ahead, — 
Across the moors of England where 
So many men of England bled. 

They have no cares where they are now, 
I thought, — they have found peace. Is death 
The only answer then? Does peace 
Come but with life's last feeble breath? 

We galloped on; the dust in curls 
Behind us marked the path we took, — 
And then a stream bestirred my thoughts, 
I stopped and lay beside the brook. 

The grass was green, — the green one sees 
But once: contentment dwelt beside 
The brook; I visited, it seemed. 
The home of some ethereal guide. 

My thoughts turned then, once more to life: 
The green of grass, the blue of stream 
Put in my mind the thought that death 
Was not the only way ... I dreamed . . . 


If nature offers peace like this. 
Then surely one might transfer it 
Elsewhere. If this be true, I'll see 
If I can transfer just a bit. 

Then riding back across the moors 
I vowed I'd capture peace in life, 
Not death; and then prepared myself 
To resolutely face the strife.

Across the great, empty stretch of yellow, scorching 
sand; in the heat and glare of the merciless, flaming sun; 
over the ever-changing, shifting, windswept valleys and 
dunes; through the frequent, and blinding storms of sting- 
ing, pelting sand, there rode a lone figure, mounted on 
a horse whose steel-like muscles rippled under his sleek, 
black hide with every movement of his sinuous limbs. His 
master, the bold intruder of the desert solitude, wore the 
armour and dress of a Crusader, with a scarlet cloak fly- 
ing behind him like the wings of some monstrous bird, 
and across his massive chest was the sign and symbol of 
the Crusader — the Cross. 

But for all his outward appearance of strength, 
courage and fortitude, inward doubt, and fear racked his 
tormented mind, for it was not to duty he was racing, but 
to safety — lone survivor of the suicidal encounter with the 
overwhelming forces of the Arabs, in which his comrades 
were now fighting bravely and fearlessly, sacrificing their 
lives for the Christian faith. He had deserted, realizing 
that to remain meant death. 

He had not far to go, only a few hours more and he 
would be safe; already the sun was slowly descending from 
its lofty throne, and he calculated that with a certain 
amount of good fortune he could reach his goal by sunset. 


Twice his horse stumbled, almost sending him flying into 
a bed of roasting sand, but still he sped onward, ever near- 
ing the awaiting haven. The sandstorm was becoming less 
violent and consequently he had more time for thought; 
the battle would be in full force, and the sands would be 
stained red with the blood of the fallen. He could hear 
the cries of his comrades there, fighting, killing, dying. 
He wondered if they would notice his absence and take him 
for a coward. Maybe he was a coward? But surely life 
was better than death. And yet what would life mean for 
him? Happiness and comfort, or shame and disgrace? 
Would he be questioned on arriving at his destination? 
Would he be dishonoured? Forget it, he thought, life is 
waiting, life, not death. Would the others receive life? 
Was there life eternal for them? Was there a God to give 
them happiness and peace of mind? Did their great faith 
mean anything? They were so sure of life hereafter that 
they were not afraid to die. Were they, not he, riding 
into life instead of death? Surely with such tremendous, 
undaunted faith, they must be right. 

The hot, cutting, swirling sands licked viciously at his 
unprotected legs, as his sandaled feet dug deeper and 
deeper into the steaming, sweating, leather-like flanks of 
his steed, urging him on faster and faster towards the 
noise and clamour of battle, towards the hoarse, blood- 
curdling yells of the wounded and dying, and the clangings 
and clashings of the deadly swords. For the first time he 
felt at last the inward comfort and warmth of peace and 
happiness. Across his chest in bold, defiant colours he 
wore the sign of the Crusader.

Hitls. hills. 
Open to the sky; 
Lying open to the sky, 
To the sun and to the sky, 
To the glory of the sky 
That is the Lord's. 

Hills, like the sea, 

Like the undulating sea, 

Rolling on eternally. 

Sleeping on in peace, while we 

Rave in war's futility 

Watching for what ne'er shall be 

Till in Christianity 

We have settled peaceably 

In the fear and love of God, 

And the law of Christ the Lord, 

In the fear and love of God 

Who made us all. 

Hills, hills, 

Symbols of world peace. 
Of an everlasting peace, 
Prophets of a final peace, 
Of the last and final peace 
That is the Lord's.

It has always been man's desire to imitate birds and 
it is interesting to find that most of the attempts by early 
inventors to fly, were with flapping wings or rotating 
wing aircraft. Among these early inventors, the chief 
desire was to hover, and travelling forward was a secondary 
idea. Originally the designers of fixed-wing aeroplanes 


used forward speed as a means to get aircraft into the air. 
Now, at last, we finally have aircraft, other than cumber- 
some airships, that can hover. 

The real history of rotating wing aircraft goes back 
to Leonardo da Vinci's fifteenth century flapping wing 
contraption, which was the forerunner of a similar craft 
in the eighteenth century. Since then patent offices have 
been flooded with numerous designs for hovering machines. 
Among the designs proposed are flapping-wing types, 
paddle wheel, and rotating blade ideas. 

Like all rotary wing aircraft, the helicopter is the 
safest class of aeroplane, with the ability to land in little 
more than its own dimensions, and is safe in bad visibility. 
To do this the rotors are designed to free-wheel in the 
event of an engine failure. One of the troubles at present 
hindering large machines of this type, is that in the rotat- 
ing blade type now generally used, an increase in rotor size 
causes the tips of the blade to travel at such great speeds 
that they go faster than the speed of sound, thus causing 
compressibility phenomena, of which we hear so much 
these days. The early machines could sometimes perform, 
but few of them were stable. During the last decade 
stability troubles have been overcome so that now there 
are many successful types of helicopters. 

To retain controlability, various methods have been 
used. One method was to hang control surfaces under the 
rotors, another was to change the blade angle by tilting the 
rotors, and a third was a set of variable pitch propellers 
at the approximate axes. The first method has now been 

The usual method of classifying helicopters is by the 
layout used to correct the torque of the rotor blades. 
These may be divided into two general classes, the first of 
which consists of those using pairs of rotors. Among early 
designers twin rotor helicopters with contra-rotating rotors 
superimposed coaxially were generally used. Then there are 
the twin rotor helicopters with rotors positioned side-by- 


side. In this class are the heavy weight lifters for they 
have the advantage that to step up size, all that need be 
done is increase the number of pairs of rotors and the bug- 
aboos attendant upon large blades are avoided. An ex- 
ample of this is the largest British helicopter, the Cierva 
Air Horse, using three rotors. Developed from this class 
are those having a pair of rotors side-by-side but inter- 
meshing like an egg-beater, hence taking up less space. 
Sometimes, instead of having the main blades side-by-side 
they are arranged in tandem one at each end of the 
machine. In this whole class of two row helicopters the 
torque of each rotor is counteracted by that of the other 
rotor spinning in the opposite direction and therefore the 
effect of torque is eliminated. 

Then in the other group are helicopters v/ith a single 
rotor and some torque-reacting device. Sikorski, whose 
designs are so well known, has been working since 1909 on 
this type, and is regarded as the father of this class. In 
his machines the torque created by the main rotor is 
negated by a small airscrew at the tail of the machine. 
There are many different aircraft in this class. A further 
development of it uses the anti-torque propeller to drive 
the craft in the direction of flight. 

Even the jets of which we have heard so much lately 
have invaded the sphere of the helicopter. One English 
helicopter uses the turbine to drive the main rotor and the 
jet escapes through an exit pipe of controllable size in the 
tail to counteract the torque of the main blades. An 
Austrian version uses small jets at the rotor tips to turn 
the blades at high speeds. 

A recent innovation for overcoming torque consists of 
placing airfoil surfaces in the downwash of the rotor. These 
act like aeroplane wings set on edge and have a sideways 
lift. If they are large enough, sufficient lift can be created 
to counteract the torque from the blades themselves. 

At the present time helicopter evolution is at a stage 
similar to the aeroplane in the early 1910's, when relative 


merits of biplanes and monoplanes, pushers and tractors, 
were established after a long series of trials and rejections. 
To-day, with its costly gearing of the rotors to the engines 
and the skill required to pilot it, the helicopter is not yet 
ready for general use by the public, but the days when its 
great utility becomes available to all are fast approaching.

It was a wild night. The frantic wind pulled and 
buffeted everything that dared stand up to its fury, and 
those things which nature or man had constructed that 
defied it were subjected to a beating seldom parallelled. 
Those who hazarded their way through the cold night, 
either from foolishness or ill fortune, were conscious of 
great black clouds scudding rapidly across the dark star- 
less sky, and their ears were filled with the thousands of 
sounds of a furious gale, ranging from near human cries to 
hollow moanings. 

Amongst those unfortunate obstructions to the tumul- 
tuous storm was a small stone cottage upon which the wind 
appeared to lavish a particular violence, for it seemed such 
a solid object of defiance amongst the tossing, yielding 
trees whose tattered branches submitted to the slightest 
whim of the elements. From its stolid walls there shone 
a bright light, piercing the gloom like a ray of hope in a 
chaotic world. 

The light streamed from a small low-ceilinged room, 
whose warmth and comfort must have seemed particularly 
enticing to a stranger outside. The furniture consisted of 
a few leather arm-chairs, chosen, it would seem, for ease 
rather than elegance, and on the floor were many thick 
carpets. At one end of the room there burned cheerily 
several big pine logs in a singularly large fireplace, directly 
in front of which reclined a gray-haired man, whose half- 
closed eyes and drowsy countenance showed a complete 


lack of deference to the display of power of the storm. His 
self-satisfied expression portrayed a calm indifference to 
the furious gale which constantly beat upon the small 
house, and howled down the big stone chimney in a 
frustrated attempt to disturb the serenity and complete 
atmosphere of warmth and cosiness which pervaded the 

Soothed, rather than disturbed by the low moanings 
and monotonous sounds of the baffled wind, and half 
drunk with heat and drowsiness, the man gazed into the 
fire and dreamed 

Before his eyes rose distant dreams of a colourful 
past: the highlights of his career stood out with unusual 
clearness and his active life presented itself to him anew. 
How vividly he remembered his first promotion in the 
army! The first of many, until one triumphant day he 
had received the command of his battalion. Then fol- 
lowed a happy era of success — victory on the battle field, 
and fame at home. Those were the days of action and 
valour, of recklessness and honour! Then it happened. 
The last desperate German counter-attack came upon the 
one day he had chanced to grant himself a day's leave. No 
one blamed him for the tragedy that ensued. No one 
actually said it was his fault, but two weeks later he was 
transferred to a quieter part of the front, and a month 
after that — honourable discharge and a pension for life. 

Somewhat morosely he returned to the present. He 
was old, and it was late. Wearily he arose, and turned to 
go to bed, leaving the glowing logs among the ashes, which. 
like his dreams, were the only remains of a once proud and 

brilliant past.

The cold wind howled around the chimney, and 
through the darkness the rain beat upon the roof in un- 
ending torrents ....

Those of us who had anything to do with this year's 
edition of the first rugby team will remember it always 
as "the team which worked so well together". Much is 
said (preached) and written in the course of any season 
in any team game about "spirit". Most of us agree that 
it is an essential ingredient in any successful team. Yet 
very seldom does a team, even a good one, not have some 
element of cleavage which weakens its spirit in countless 
intangible ways. The team this year developed a spirit of 
unselfish, co-operative loyalty to each other and, I believe, 
to the School, which no other team I have coached in the 
past fourteen years has had. It is very much to the credit 
of every boy on the squad that this is so. 

This very fact would make a successful season and the 
pleasant thing about it all is that it shows upon the score- 
board. Five wins and one loss is not so bad. And it 
certainly is a lot better than even the most optimistic of 
us (are there any optimists concerned with rugby, any- 
way?) hoped for in the beginning. Two old colours, four 
soccer players, and a few converted sub half backs for line- 
men! What a hammering these poor candidates for line 
positions took to try to learn, in a few short weeks, what 
might have been learned slowly, and much less painfully 


over a few years! Several times the Headmaster and my- 
self sat down to discuss whether we were sacrificing sound 
educational principles to this incessant drive for better 
football. Each time we decided that, considering the type 
of boys trying for the team this year, they could "take it" 
a bit more. Finally, from a squad that was shoved all 
over the field by Middleside in the first scrimmage, there 
developed an average good team with that intangible "some- 
thing" which made them an above-average team. 

Of course, there were some good football players on 
the squad to start with and others developed through the 
season. It wasn't all spirit — a team has to have more than 
this to win games. Lawson, French. Jarvis and Mclntyre 
nad established themselves as outstanding players last 
year. Lawson is one of the best ball carriers we've had 
here in some years. French, moving into the quarterback 
position, led the team well and he and Jarvis continued to 
give an excellent tackling display. Mclntyre. once he be- 
came accustomed to viewing the world from between his 
legs, played a fine game at snap. Our soccer players, new 
to the complexities of football, did an amazing job. Cox i 
and Conyers ii developed into good linemen and Brewer is 
undoubtedly the best natural kicker we have had at T.C.S. 
in the years I've been at the School. Curtis and Hyde, 
moving from the backfield to the line this year, played 
well in every game. Curtis proved that, up to this year, 
he has been in the wrong place for he is really an out- 
standing lineman. (More than I could say of him as a 
backf ielder. ) The boys coming up from Middleside — 
Armour, Pangman, Carson, Hall, Rickaby, Tessier, Alley — 
all showed the advantages of last year's experience and 
training and were a great help. With many of the above- 
mentioned returning to School next Fall to add to the ball 
handling ability of Bruce, Rogers and Gaimt we may look 
forward to a more experienced squad than we had this 


Several boys would have contributed even more to the 
team had it not been for injuries. This is particularly true 
of Conyers ii, Pangman, Carson and Drynan. Conyers 
certainly would have received his first team colours, and 
perhaps some others would have also, had injuries not kept 
them out of key games. 

And a special word about the two best substitutes a 
coach could wish for. Many boys on the bench secretly 
hope that the player in their position will get cracked up 
a bit so that he'll have a chance. At least one gets the 
feeling that this is so. I do not think it was so this year 
and certainly not of Fennell and Campbell i. I will not 
embarrass either one of them by enlarging on this state- 
ment but their complete disinterest in their own fate, as 
compared to that of the team was something I have never 
come across before. I asked Fennell one day if he ever 
felt badly about sitting out so much of each game and his 

reply was " no. I know I can't play rugby". Top 

marks for this attitude! 

No sooner does one rugby season end when we start 
talking about next fall. All through hockey, cricket and 
even examinations is sprinkled discussion of the team next 
year. It seems that we can look forward to 1947 with 
some optimism — that is up to the 1st of September, for 
as Jack French reminded me in the excitement immediately 
after the U.C.C. game — "It's fine now, but on Monday we'll 
all be terrible again." Undoubtedly we'll have a more 
experienced team and if, around those boys who do come 
back, there develops anything like the spirit of this year, 
we should have a good season.

Mr. Hodgetts looked about anxiously. Gathered 
around him on Bigside field were thirty or forty eager 
faces from whom he would eventually pick the Bigside 


rugby squad for 1946. The prospective material was not 
a potential threat to the Argos, to say the least. There 
were only three old Colours back, and altogether no more 
than eight from the 1945 side. Among those noticeably 
present was the nucleus of last year's soccer eleven includ- 
ing the Bermuda bruisers. Cox, Conyers, and Brewer, none 
of whom had ever played rugby before. Only three on the 
field weighed more than 155 pounds. Mr. Hodgetts knew 
that T.C.S. would never field a team of powerful athletes, 
because we never import and are a relatively small school. 
He knew that from that exceptionally inexperienced group 
he had to field a team to meet a U.C.C. powerhouse which 
was to include nine old Colours, and the invariably strong 
Ridley squad, not to mention S.A.C. with their all-star 
Middleton back again. In short, Mr. Hodgetts had a very 
formidable undertaking ahead of him. 

In early scrimmages against Middleside, it was obvious 
that the boys, inexperienced and nervous, lacked the love 
of bodily contact that they would need in Little Big Four 
competition, and, to say the least, Bigside took quite a 
razzing. Several onlookers were heard to say that the first 
team would be fortunate to win a single game. But as 
time went on, that familiar "Drive! Drive! Drive!" gra- 
dually worked into us that extra something that makes the 
difference between a winning and a losing team, and Mr. 
Hodgetts' constant drilling and attention began to reap 
success. On September 21, we met Peterborough on the 
School campus, and with a scant half dozen plays in our 
offensive repertoire, we eked out a narrow 13-12 victory 
against a team that later went on to a practically unbeaten 
season to emerge Senior C.O.S.S.A. champions. It is al- 
ways helpful to win the first game! Middleside was soon 
no match for Bigside, and on October 5, the team won the 
School's acclaim by drubbing Pickering at Newmarket by 
a decisive 14-6 score. However, from all reports, Picker- 
ing had not been up to their usual standard that day. The 
acid test to discover whether or not we were Little Big 


Four calibre came the following Friday at Varsity Stadium 
where we met U.T.S. Although U.T.S. came within our 
ten yard line no less than four times during the game, the 
line held like a brick wall, and we again ended on top 5-2. 
It was in this game that Mr. Hodgetts saw the fruits of his 
heavy line drill. We had scored our third straight victory 
and were entering the Little Big Four unbeaten and untied. 
We were by that time determined to give the U.C.C. power- 
house at least "a good run for their money," and on Octo- 
ber 19 on the U.C.C. grounds Bigside pulled one of the 
biggest Little Big Four upsets in many years, spilling the 
U.C.C. team decisively 12-5. Mr. Hodgetts was so excited, 
he couldn't even smoke his cigarettes! Everything went 
right that day; the line trampled all over the U.C.C. line, 
the tackling was crashing and solid, Bill Brewer's kicking, 
which often sent the ball soaring far over the U.C.C. full- 
back's head, was the best seen in the Little Big Four in 
many years; in fact, every play seemed to just have to 
click. It was a wonderful experience for every T.C.S. 
player and supporter, a game none of us will forget for a 
long, long time. It was hard after the U.C.C. game not to 
look two weeks ahead to the Ridley game, and to forget 
about the S.A.C. game the coming Saturday. Consequent- 
ly the S.A.C. game, the important game played at home, 
was one of the hardest games any of us had ever played. 
However, the team cleared the S.A.C. hurdle with a 13-5 
victory in a rough, hard struggle, and entered the home 
stretch out in front. The build-up of that last week, and 
the pressure on every player to win, win, win, was probably 
impossible to prevent, but it was anything but healthy. 
When we finally met Ridley at U.C.C. on November 2, we 
were far too keyed up to play "above our heads" as we 
had done all season, and consequently we lost our only 
game of the season and with it the Little Big Four cham- 

The general feeling among a great many people seems 
to be that, losing as we did against Ridley, the season was 


a flop. However, anyone who saw the team practising in 
the first week will agree that from the point of view of 
improvement the season was a great success. We finished 
a close second in our quest for a championship, which is a 
most creditable performance for a team that wasn't ex- 
pected to stop any of its traditional rivals. We had no 
stars on the team to carry the rest of the players along 
on their merit. Thus the majority of credit for a grand 
season goes to the coach, Bemie by name, who moulded 
a first class team out of what was originally second class 

The team this year (to quote a well-known source!) 
was a group of friends who fitted together so successfully 
as a team that they combined to overcome five of their six 
opponents. We had more fun together this season than 
first teams have had for many years. There was all season 
long a spirit of playfulness and good-nature on the field, 
which was certainly an important factor in our success. All 
in all, the 1946 Bigside rugby season was definitely 

— T.W.L. and J.B.F. 

At U.C.C., Saturday, October 19: Won 12-5 

A light, hard-charging T.C.S. squad met an over-con- 
fident U.C.C. team on the Upper Canada field in the first 
Little Big Four game of this season and drove to a 12-5 

An early drive by Upper Canada was thwarted when 
a touchdown pass was dropped and from that point on 
T.C.S. took complete control of the game as they gained 
first downs repeatedly on bucks by Lawson and Bruce. In 
the closing minutes of the quarter passes to Conyers and 
Hyde put the ball on the U.C.C. thirty yard line, and Law- 
son made a beautiful run behind perfect interference for a 
touchdown. This was unconverted but gave the School a 


5-0 lead. T.C.S. continued to press in the second quarter, 
and after several exchanges of kicks, Brewer kicked a 
single leaving the score at half time 6-0 in Trinity's favour. 

Upper Canada opened the second half with renewed 
vigour and held the ball well in the T.C.S. territory despite 
the School's repeated attempts to crash through their line. 
However, the Trinity squad was not to be denied for long, 
and they finally got a break when a long kick by Brewer 
was recovered by the School on U.C.C.'s fifteen yard line. 
The ball was then bucked to the Upper Canada five yard 
line from which Lawson drove through for his second 
touchdown and the School's eleventh point. Again the con- 
vert was not good due to holding on the T.C.S. line. U.C.C. 
once more put added drive in their play and began a pass- 
ing offensive. However, Bruce intercepted one of these 
passes at the fifty yard strip and ran the ball thirty yards 
to the U.C.C. twenty yard line. From here Brewer kicked 
a single to give Trinity a 12-0 lead. From this point on the 
game was wide open, U.C.C. taking to the air for repeated 
gains on long passing plays. Hyde intercepted one, but on 
gaining possession of the ball, U.C.C. recommenced their 
passing offensive, and finally went over for a touchdown 
which Pritchard scored. This left the final score 12-5 for 

For the U.C.C. squad, Pritchard, Rennie and Gossage 
were best, while the T.C.S. squad played so much as a unit 
that it would be impossible to pick out individual stars. 

T.C.S. — French, Lawson, Jarvis, Gaunt, Tessier, Conyers, Bruce, 
Armour, Brewer, Taylor, Hyde, Curtis, Rogers, Mclntyre, Hall, Cox, 
Alley, Payne, Fennell, Pangman, Rickaby. 

U.C.C — Gossage, O'Brian, Scott, Connolly, Rennie, Bachly, Rid- 
dell, Kilgour, Pritchard, Hewitt, Hogarth, Hadden, Bazos, Beatty, 
Colley, Grant, Murphy, Peters, Crerar, Robinson, Little, Cole, Cork, 
Wiegand, Stevenson, Cooper. 


SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 

At Port Hope. OotolxT 26: Won 18-5 

The first team continued its winning streak defeating 
St. Andrew's College 13-5 for its fifth victory and second 
straight Little Big Four triumph. Trinity had a slight 
edge throughout, mostly due to excellent work by the back- 
field who time after time broke through the opposing line 
for long gains. 

The School took the lead in the first few minutes when 
Brewer kicked a single after S.A.C. had been penalized 
fifteen yards for holding. A short St. Andrew's kick gave 
Trinity possession on the S.A.C. forty yard line and two 
successive penalties against St. Andrew's put the ball 
fifteen yards out. A well executed extension flicker play 
ended with Brewer crossing the line for a touchdown, which 
he converted. S.A.C. took the kick-off at their own twenty- 
five, but penalties drove them back and they v.'^ere forced 
to kick from their goal-line. Brewer kicked another single 
to make the score 8-0. The play from this point to half- 
time see-sawed back and forth with neither team making 
much progress as whistle-happy referees handed out six- 
teen penalties in the first half. 

St. Andrew's received the kick-off in the second half 
and four first downs plus two Trinity penalties put the 
ball on the School's one yard line from which Middleton 
scored a touchdown which was not converted. A Trinity 
drive was halted on the S.A.C. thirty yard line but a bad 
snap put the team in possession again on the fifteen yard 
strip and Brewer tallied on a reverse for his second touch- 
down. The convert failed. Another Trinity drive was 
halted deep in the opposition's territory when S.A.C. re- 
covered a fumble. St. Andrew's then commenced a last 
minute drive and succeeded in carrying the ball to the 
School's twenty yard line. A determined Trinity line dug 
in and in three plays drove S.A.C. back five yards, and the 
game ended with the School victors by a 13-5 score. 


Brewer, who scored all thirteen points, made many 
dazzling runs and several times his long kicks sailed over 
the heads of amazed St. Andrew's backs. He was ably 
supported by Lawson's powerful bucking and Tessier's fine 
tackling. The line, although outweighed, played well and 
were particularly good in breaking up pass plays. St. 
Andrew's displayed fine spirit with Smith and Middleton 
leading the attack. 

T.C.S. — Brewer, Jarvis, French, Lawson, Taylor, Mclntyre, Hall, 
Payne, Rickaby, Curtis, Hyde, Tessier, Gaunt, Armour, Rogers, 
Carson, Alley, Cox, Fennell, Pangman. 

S.A.C. — Nold, Howson, Smith, Middleton, Chipman, Currie, 
Landreth, Martin, Schofield, Simpson, Little, McGregor, Shaver. 
Price, Barr, D. Crandall, Errington, J. Crandall, Taylor, MarahaOI. 

SCHOOL vs. B.R.C. 
At U.C.C., November 2: Lost 20-1 

Bishop Ridley College continued where they left off 
in 1944 and once again won the Little Big Four champion- 
ship, defeating the School 20-1. The field was muddy and 
our players had a great deal of difficulty in bringing down 
the elusive Ridley half-backs. 

Trinity received the kick-off and drove into Ridley 
territory but an intercepted pass halted the attack. It 
started all over again but a fumbled snap was picked up 
by Court who ran the ball to the School twenty-five yard 
line. However, a Ridley pass was intercepted over the 
goal-line and the ball taken out to the ten yard line. A 
very nice run-back by Casselman started another Ridley 
attack and three successive first downs put them on the 
three yard line from where Gray went over on a quarter- 
back sneak for a touchdown which he converted. The 
School commenced a drive which carried us deep into Rid- 
ley territory and enabled Brewer to kick a single point. At 
half time the score was Ridley 6, T.C.S. 1. 

Ridley kicked off and after an exchange of kicks 
Brewer made a forty yard runback of a kick which he re- 


ceived behind the goal line. Lawson bucked for two first 
downs and Brewer kicked to the Ridley five yard line. Rid- 
ley took the offensive and capped a long march when a 
perfect pass from Perry put Gray in the clear for a touch- 
down which he converted. Ridley continued to press and 
Gray kicked two more rouges. Trinity took to the air but 
B.R.C. intercepted a pass and Gray skirted the short end 
for a touchdown from thirty yards out. Once more Ridley 
proved adept at pass defense when Frost intercepted a pass 
and only a beautiful runback by Lawson kept Ridley from 
notching another point. On the last play of the game 
Brewer almost broke away, but was brought down after 
making twenty-five yards, and the final whistle blew with 
Ridley victors by a 20-1 score. 

It has become a habit to say at the end of each write- 
up of a Ridley game that the score was not indicative of 
the play. However, in this game Ridley proved themselves 
definitely superior and deserved to win by the nineteen 
point margin they rolled up. The Trinity team was out- 
classed but fought hard with Lawson, Brewer. French and 
Tessier playing well. For Ridley, Gray was outstanding 
and received excellent support from Casselman and Fen- 

T.C.S. — French. Lawson, Jarvis, Gaunt, Conyers, Bruce, 
Armour, Brewer, Mclntyre, Hall, Hyde, Curtis, Rogers, Taylor, 
Carson, Tessier, Cox, Payne, Rickaby, Fennell, Pangman. 

BJELC. — Stanley Bonguard, Fennell, Court, Dougan, W^hitte-

Won by Brent 10-2, November 16 

In the annual House Game this year the Brent House 
"Bruisers" emerged the victor after a close battle, the final 
score being 10-2. Both teams displayed a few unorthodox 
but quite effective plays, the best ground gainer being 
Brent's Ohio State shift end run. 


Brent House kicked off due to Lawson's adeptness at 
chewing string, and the game got underway. Referee 
Hodgetts in the garb of St. Nick managed to get out of 
the first tackle with only minor injuries. By this time 
the School pony had returned to the stable so Mr. Hodgetts 
had to stay on the field. Christmas cheer was so prevalent 
that Bethune gave Brent a present when Gaunt recovered 
a Bethune fumble on the first play of the game and ran 
for a touchdown, unconverted. Bethune, still bewildered 
by the onslaught of this score received the kick and were 
unable to make yards, so Brent, in possession called on 
their D-19 shift which sent Lawson for thirty yards, fol- 
lowed by a nice run by Jarvis which put Brent on the 
Bethune one yard line, but Brent failed to score and Be- 
thune gained possession. Bruce bucked well for Bethune 
and slowly drove Brent back, but each time Brent had a 
chance they used their new play to good advantage. Near- 
ing the end of the first quarter Brewer kicked a point for 
Bethune, making the score 5-1 for the Bruisers at the end 
of the first quarter. 

Undaunted, Bethune again got in Brent territory and 
Brewer kicked another point. At this time Brent, driving 
for another major, completed a pass from Curtis to Lawson 
off a kick formation for a gain of twenty yards. The 
players themselves were no less surprised than the specta- 
tors at this remarkable feat. Thompson ii of Brent, near 
the end of the half, intercepted a Bethune pass and there 
were possibilities of scoring after Gaunt threw a long pass 
to Hyde. However, at the close of the first half the score 
remained 5-2. 

After the kick-off, Bethune held Brent m their own 
end of the field, and Taylor intercepted a Brent pass near 
centre field. But the next play Bethune fumbled and 
Brent carried the play into Bethune territory. Jarvis of 
Brent then made a long run which brought the ball to the 
one yard line from where Lawson bucked over for five 
points. The convert failed making the score 10-2. The 


play stayed in the centre field for the remaining moments 
of the quarter. On Brent's "Herby" play, that tubby line- 
man was sent through the line quite frequently on plunges, 
and his wriggling body was seen beaten to the ground, only 
after great toil by the Bethunites. Bethune nearly scored 
following a long pass from Brewer to Taylor but Brent 
held, and on gaining possession drove back up the field, 
leaving the score 10-2. at the end of the game. 

Lawson and Jarvis starred for Brent not to mention 
the large middles who gained yards on bucks (occa- 
sionally) by their driving momentum. Hall, Brewer and 
Taylor were the best for the losers. 

Brent — Lawson, Jarvis, Gaunt, Curtis, Mclntyre, Hyde, Alley, 
Thompson ii, Stratford, Drynan, Thompson iii, Payne, Rickaby, 

Bethune — French, Brewer, Bruce, Taylor i, Conyers ii. Cox i, 
Campbell i, Carson, Newcomb, Armour, Pangman, Goering, Ensinck, 
Emery. Hall, Rogers i. 


The Middleside "Under 17" team started the football 
season by winning their first three games this year. In 
the second round of the C.O.S.S.A. after such a promising 
start the team was beaten by greatly improved Peter- 
borough and Lindsay teams 23-10 and 28-8 respectively. 
The loss of both these games can largely be attributed to 
quite a lot of fumbling. Due to lack of time the team 
was forced to concede their second game to Oshawa. As 
this created a four way tie, "sudden death" semi-finals 
were played in which Middleside lost to Lindsay 20-6 in 
what was undoubtedly one of the better games of the year. 

Throughout the season Goodbody, Stratford, Nigel 
Thompson and Goering played exceptionally well. 

The Middleside "over 17" team played only five games 
this year as they were limited to exhibition games. Of the 
five, they won one, tied one and lost three. 

Against Upper Canada Thirds the team had a very 
bad day on the defensive and were trounced 29-1. At Saint 


Andrew's fumbles behind our line gave S.A.C. two touch- 
downs to win 21-6 in what was otherwise an even game. 

McPherson, Thompson ii, Ensinck and Brodeur i stood 
out consistently during the season on this team. 

The Middleside House Game was won by Bethune 
House 7-1. In the second half Bethune came from behind 
a single point lead, scored early in the game by Brent, to 
score a touchdown and convert it for six points. A single 
accounted for the other point. McPherson, Goodbody, 
and Ensinck were good for the victors while Thompson ii 
and Thompson iii stood out for Brent. 

Under Seventeen — Goodbody, Bascom, Boulden, Black, Brooks, 
Byers, Gumming, Deverall, Dignam, Emery, Goering, Montagu, Tim- 
mins, Harvie, Huycke, Johnston, MacLean, Newcomb, Pilcher,

Over Seventeen — Brodeur i, Conyers i, Cross, dePencier, En- 
sinck, Fulford, Ketchum, McGregor, McLaren, McPherson, Merry, 
Morgan i, Pepler, Tanner, Thompson ii, Vallance, Wilson, Wismer, 


Since the beginning of the season Littleside has play- 
ed six games of which three were won and three lost. 
Early in the season they defeated Pickering 58-0 and Lake- 
field 16-6. The next game, against St. Andrew's, was 
Littleside's first loss, the score being 30-0, after a not- 
altogether one-sided game, for T.C.S. missed several scor- 
ing opportunities. In the two games with U.C.C, the 
School broke even losing the first 19-6 and winning the 
second 20-12. In the last game of the season Littleside 
lost to S.A.C. in a return game, the score being 13-5 for 
the Saints. Before the season closed Littleside played 
their annual House game in which Brent defeated Bethune 
10-0. Fullerton got the touchdown and kicked singles for 
the other five points. 

The standouts on the Littleside team this year were 
Moffitt, Thompson v,Croll, Scowen, Hogarth, and Wood. 

Littleside "B" have played one game against Lakefield 
and were edged by a score of 6-5, in a very close and excit- 


ing game at the Grove. Luke was appointed Captain of 
the team while Gilley and Potter were Vice-Captains. Mr. 
Snelgrove has given up much of his time to help coach this 
team beside some able assistance from Patterson ii. 

Littleside — Ashton, Austin, Bate, Beaubien, Brodeur ii, Croll, 
Fullerton, Greenwood, Grout, Heard, Hogarth, Howard, Kingman. 
Lewis, Little, Luxton, Maier, McGill, Mackenzie, McKinnon, Moffitt.

ing a Distinction Cap to T. W. Lawson in recognition of his 
outstanding service to the football team this year. Law-

In September, for the first time for several years, we 
were without a group of experienced players around which 
to build a team. We had three half first team colours who 
wished to play soccer again. McDowell was chosen Cap- 
tain and Hughes Vice-Captain and we began the task of 
making a side from a group of boys who had little but a 
love of the game and a determination to improve. We 
began badly for McDowell and Paterson ii were injured in 
the second practice of the season and Paterson is still in- 
jured as I write. Bad luck, Jerry. It became clear from 
our early practices and the first two games that we had a 
good goalkeeper in Barnes who from the first played with 
good judgment and a quick eye. Paterson i at centre half 
was energetic and constructive and it was obvious that 
Cox ii was going to be as good as his brothers someday. 
With McDowell he was always a threat when the play was 
near the opponents' goal. The problem was to get the ball 

Our first four starts were all easy victories for our 
opponents. We had entered a league composed of three 
Peterborough teams and we found ourselves playing against 
older and more experienced soccer players. But the whole 
Bigside squad was still keen and we took our eleven to

U.C.C. which had the makings of a good team. We lost — 
but it was a very close game. McDowell was back in the 
side and his leadership made a big difference. When Big- 
side beat the Masters it seemed certain the tide had turn- 
ed! Playing much better soccer we defeated St. Andrew's 
and won our remaining two league games. 

By the end of the season Butterfield and Wells were 
playing excellent soccer and our half line was dependable. 
Dame, greatly improved by constant effort, had ensured 
his place on the right wing and Hughes, on the left wing, 
at great personal inconvenience, was using his left foot and 
using it well. (Not one player on the whole Bigside squad 
was naturally left-footed!). Sweny, always unselfish, had 
improved his passing to the point where he was even 
getting shots on goal. There was still room for improve- 
ment in the kicking of our backs who often found it hard 
to clear the ball. Bogue's heading was good at times and 
Barton's and Harley's energy was much to be commended. 
But the fact remains our weakest spot was the backfield. 

At no time during the season did the interest fail and 
good sportsmanship was never absent. Both our opponents 
and ourselves enjoyed every game to the full. 

I offer my warmest thanks to McDowell and Hughes 
for their constant support and to all the boys who turned 
out so enthusiastically and helped to make a sound team 
by providing good competition. 

— E.R.B. 

At T.C.S., October 21: Won 2-1 

In a thrilling game the School edged out the Masters 
2-1. Early in the game the first team went ahead on a 
shot by Cox ii. The Masters pressed but the School de- 
fense stood firm and enabled Cox to score again to give 
the School a two goal lead. In the second half the Mas- 
ters, led by Mr. Key, managed to score on a hard shot 


by Mr. Gwynne-Timothy. Play then became even with 
both sides failing to take advantage of several scoring 
opportunities. For the Masters Mr. Lewis played a steady 
game in goal. Mr. Knight played a magnificent defensive 
game and Mr. Bagley attacked strongly throughout. The 
School was greatly assisted by good defensive play on the 
part of the backs. It is rumoured that the star of the game 
was a Master called Kilroy. 

Masters — Lewis; Hiimble, Knight; Snelgrove ii, Rhodes, Morris; 
Sanborn, Snowdon, Bagley, Dening, Key, Gwjnone-Timothy, Kilroy. 

School — Barnes; Barton, Bogue; Butterfield i, Bronfman, Wells; 
Hughes i, McDowell i, Cox ii, Sweny, Dame. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At T.C.S., October 26: Won 8-1 

T.C.S. coasted to an easy victory over St. Andrew's 
ifi the team's first major victory of the season. Early in 
the game Sweny scored for the School in a melee in the 
S.A.C. goal zone. A minute later McDowell shot one into 
the net and before the half was over Butterfield, Cox and 
McDowell each added a goal to make the score 5-0 at the 
interval. The early part of the second half was even, with 
both defenses clearing effectively, but T.C.S. soon took the 
advantage and McDowell, Cox and Hughes each scored to 
make the score 8-0. S.A.C. pressed and just before full 
time Opie scored on a pass from Macorra ii. 

For S.A.C. Edmonds was best on the attack while 
Anfossi cleared superbly on the defense. McDowell led 
the T.C.S. forwards while Barnes played well in the T.C.S. 

T.C.S. — Barnes; Barton, Bogue; Butterfield i, Bronfman, Wells; 
Hughes i. Cox ii, McDowell i, Sweny, Dame. 

S.A.C. — McKree, Ashdown, Roberts; Crisson, Anfossi, Hannon; 
Lindsay, Opie, Edmonds, Macorra i, Macorra ii. 



At T.C.S., November 9: Won 6-1 

On a muddy field T.C.S. was able to defeat the 
Kawartha Cubs by a considerable margin. Play was even 
at first and it was not until half way through the first 
half that McDowell beat Foster, who slipped while cover- 
ing the ball. The Cubs then attacked and Chambe scored 
on a pass from Downer. The School again pressed and 
Hughes counted on a difficult shot. Before the half end- 
ed Cox scored to give the School a 3-1 lead at half-time. 

Throughout the second half T.C.S. attacked strongly 
but good defensive work by Hutchinson and Gray, also 
several splendid saves by Foster, allowed only three more 
goals to be scored, two by Cox and one by Dame. The 
School team played well throughout with the half-backs 
starring both on attack and defence. 

T.C.S.— Barnes, Harley, Bogue, Butterfield i, Paterson i, Wells. 
Hughes. Cox ii, McDowell i, Sweny, Dame. 

Kawartha Cubs — Foster, Bradley, Hutchinson, Castle, Gray. 
Earl. Dolan, Wellock, Downer, Payne, Chambe. 


At Peterborougli, November 16: Won 2-0 

In a fine game T.C.S. eased out a two goal victory over 
a strong Peterborough team. Playing one of their best 
games of the season the School went ahead midway in the 
first period when Cox scored on a long shot. Both teams 
strove for the advantage but at half-time the score still 
remained 1-0 for T.C.S. On resumption of play T.C.S. 
took the ball to the Peterborough end and again Cox scored 
on a splendid shot. From this point the game was really 
close, both teams trying desperately to score but good de- 
fensive play by both teams kept the remainder of the game 

Barnes in goal played a spectacular game gaining his 
first shutout while the rest of the team gave him good sup- 
port. Foster and Bradby were Peterborough's best. 


T.C.S. — Barnes, Barton, Bogue, Butterfield i, Paterson i, Wells, 
Prentice, Hughes, Cox ii, Sweny, Dame. 

Kawartha Cub&--E. Downer, Foster, H. Payne, Bradby, Caustle, 
Graj', Reader, Dolan, D. Downer, Wellock, L. Payne. 

At T.C.S., November 23: Won 4-1 

A picked team of T.C.S. soccer players defeated the 
Peterborough Sparton Aces in an exhibition game, by a 
three goal margin. Two early goals by Brewer gave T.C.S. 
an invaluable lead and though the Aces pressed hard it was 
nearly half time when they scored on a melee in front of 
the School goal. A clever play by Conyers ii and Cox ii 
resulted in a goal from the kick-off giving T.C.S. a two 
goal lead at half time. 

Early in the second half Conyers ii scored on a bril- 
liant shot from a difficult angle. From then till the final 
whistle each team pressed hard but was unable to score. 
Both teams played well with Brewer leading the T.C.S. at- 
tack and Duffus playing well for Peterborough. 

T.C.S.- -Barnes, Butterfield i, Conyers i, Goodbody, Paterson 1, 
Wells, Conyers ii. Brewer, McDowell i, Cox ii, Hughes i. 

Peterborough — Woodcock, Payne, D. Downer, Love, Post, Mc- 
Masters, E. Downer, Duffus, Whitnel, Patterson, Murduff. 


Won by Bethiine ."-3, November 14 
In a thrilling house game, Bethune managed to gain a 
two goal victory over Brent. After several Brent threats 
early in the game, Bethune completely routed the Brent 
defense, scoring five goals before the end of the half. Goal 
getters were Cox ii (2), Sanborn, Dame and Campbell ii. 

In the second half Brent started well, McDowelf i 
scoring on a nice play by Prentice. Shortly afterwards, 
Brent scored again on a rebound from a free kick from the 
penalty line. At this point McDowell i was injured and 


carried off the field, followed shortly by Chitty. Butter- 
field i had left the field with McDowell but now Bethune 
had the odd man. However, Brent scored again on a goal 
by Paterson i. This was the last goal of the game and 
Bethune emerged victors 5-3. 

For Bethune Butterfield i and Hughes played well, 
while McDowell i and Paterson i led the Brent House at- 

Bethune- -Barnes, Barton, Bogue, Snowdon, Wells, Butterfield i, 

Hughes, Cox ii, Sanborn. Campbell ii, Dame. 

Brent — Watts, McDowell ii, Paterson i, Livingston, Spencer, 
Macklem, Prentice, McDowell i, Chitty, Sweny, Aitken. 

Middleside Soccer House Game 

November 13: Won by Bethune 5-1 

Bethune House decisively defeated Brent in a fairly 
one-sided game. For the most part of the first half the 
ball was in Brent territory but in a sudden rush Brent 
succeeded in scoring on a splendid shot by Chitty. Shortly 
afterwards Bethune retaliated with two rapid goals by 
Snowdon and Stone, to maintain a 2-1 goal lead at half 

Throughout the second half Bethune retained their ad- 
vantage, Ross, Snowdon and Stone scoring goals to make 
the final score 5-1 for Bethune. 

Best for the winners were Snowdon and Hamilton, 
while Chitty, Prentice and Livingstone played well for 

Brent — Watts; Chaplin i, Black ii, Livingstone, Panet, Kilborn; 
Grout. Aitken, Chitty, Spencer, Prentice. 

Bethune — Paterson iii, Burland, Harley, Hamilton, Butterfield ii, 
Baker, Stone, Snowdon, Campbell ii, Ross i, Crawford. 



At T.C.S., November 12: Won 1-0 

T.C.S. managed to win over a team of Peterborough 
Juniors by a narrow margin. The School had a sHght edge 
throughout the game, but the Peterborough defence kept 
them from scoring until the latter part of the second half, 
when Butterfield put in a difficult shot for the game's 
only goal. Both teams played a good game, there being 
no individual stars. 

T.C.S. — Palmer, Macklem ii, Carroll, Harris, Panet, Graham, 
Butterfield ii, Kilborn, Cooper ii, Durnford, Rogers ii. 

At Peterborough, November 16; Tie 1-1 

In a tight game T.C.S. was held to a tie by a team of 
Peterborough Juniors. The first goal was scored by Peter- 
borough on the rebound from a penalty kick on which 
Palmer had no chance. After several drives Cooper suc- 
ceeded in evening up the score on a fine shot. Shortly 
afterwards the period ended. Throughout the second half 
both teams attacked strongly with T.C.S. having a slight 
edge but being unable to score. Best for Littleside were 
Panet, Cooper, and Harris. 

T.C.S. — Palmer, Carroll, Macklem i, Graham, Panet, Harris, 
Rogers ii, Durnford, Cooper ii, Kilborn, Butterfield ii. 

Won by Bethune 4-0, November 12 
On a muddy field Bethune House slid to an easy vic- 
tory over a demoralized Brent team. Bethune went into 
the lead early in the first half, and at half-time were two 
goals up. Brent tried unsuccessfully to score in the second 
half, but nice defensive play by Bethune held them score- 
less while two more goals were scored. 


Rogers ii and Cooper ii with two goals each led the 
Bethune attack, ably supported by the Bethune captain. 
Butterfield ii, whilst Panet, Wilson and Moffitt played well 
for Brent. 

Brent -Stirling. Wilson, Kilborn, Moffitt, Howard, Panet 
(Capt.), McGill, Thompson v, Pasmore, Macklem i. Little. 

Bethune — Palmer, Smith, Welsford, Graham, Durnford, Harris,

The fiftieth annual Oxford Cup race, the oldest long 
distance cross-country race in Canada, was won this year 
by Cox i of Bethune House, closely followed by Wood i of 
Brent. Consisting of a 4.15 mile run over roads, ploughed 
fields, and many fences, the course was covered this year 
in 24 minutes 58.4 seconds. The course has been lengthen- 
ed in the last few years, and considering this, the time 
compared very favourably with the record time of 22 
minutes 32 seconds set by the late J. O. Combe in 1930. 

Although Bethune had the winning man, when the 
total points had been counted, Brent had only twenty-four 


points against them, while Bethune had thirty-one points; 
and so Brent keeps the Oxford Cup for another year. The 
runners finished in the following order : 

1. Cox i Bethune 

2. Wood i Brent 

3. Taylor i Bethune 

4. Wright i Brent 

5. Chester Brent 

6. Payne Brent 

7. Paterson i Brent 

8. Austin Bethune 

9. Taylor ii Bethune 

10. Sanborn Bethune 


Oxford Cup colours have been awarded to the follow- 
Half-Team — Cox i, Wood i, Taylor i, Wright i, Chester. 

Advisee Soccer 

Advisee soccer has begun and the teams have been 
divided into three groups, with the winners of B and C to 
meet in the semi-finals for the right to play the winner of 
A in the finals. Although only a few games have been 
played it is apparent that Mr. Bagley's team, defending 
champions, is the team to beat. 


Twenty-two boys journeyed to Oshawa for the first 
hockey practice which lasted for two hours. The first team 
is entered in a Junior "B" league this year, with St. 
Andrew's, U.T.S., U.C.C., and Pickering providing the op- 
position. With only two old Colours back the team is wide 
open, and competition is very keen. 



Basketball practices have begun, and under the guid- 
ance of Mr. Hodgetts and Mr. Rhodes over forty boys have 
been turning out in four squads which practice alternately. 
There will be two teams this year. Senior and Junior, but 
as yet it has not been decided if they are to enter leagues. 


In preparation for the inter-house matches a school 
ladder has been posted with the first five from each house 
to take part in the matches. Brewer has been appointed 
captain and Mr. Lewis has very kindly offered his services 
as an instructor.

We wish all members of the Junior School a very 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

The weather has been — for once — a definite feature of 
the past term. It is a very long time since the Rugby 
team has been able to play all of its games on mild, sunny 
days. It certainly adds a great deal to the game from the 
spectators' point of view — not to mention the players. 

Our congratulations to Wright, Payne, Chester, and 
Paterson for their good showing in the Oxford Cup race. 
The J.S. has not been so well represented for some time. 
Congratulations also to Panet. Croll, and Whitney for their 
excellent work in the New Boys' gym. competition. 

The Hallowe'en party went off very well indeed this 
year. The procession has now reached such proportions 
that it was necessary to hold it in the Classroom block this 
year. It seems to be the general opinion that the cos- 
tumes were about the best ever. Particular mention should 
be made of the imagination and ingenuity shown by many 
of the boys in inventing their own costumes. The famous 
TRAIN deserves special mention. The following prizes 
were awarded: 
Best Costume: — 

1st prize — Head Hunters (Bruce, McRae). 
2nd prize — Miss Canada (Woolley). 
Funniest Costume: — 

1st prize — Cleaning Woman (Southam ii). 
2nd prize — Wagon & Horse (Gundy, Taylor). 
3rd prize — Mountie & Horse (Church ii. Price, Mc- 
Donough, Wevill). 
Most Original: — 

1st prize — C.P.R. Train (Southam i, Ketchum i, Pitt, 

Tench) . 
2nd prize — Sedan Chair (Brinckman, Oatway, EHderkin, 
Willoughby) . 


As we go to press plans are under way for a Christ- 
mas entertainment and the Intra-Mural Soccer League is 
in full swing. Over all this hangs the shadow of approach- 
ing examinations! 


Our house in Ottawa was built about forty years ago 
and I can see no reason why it should have been chosen 
to be the habitation of a ghost. No one has been murdered 
in Rockcliffe, where it is situated, as far as I know. If 
anything sinister has taken place anywhere near the house 
I should be surprised. Of course our ghost is not a very 
terrifying spook, but merely mildly mischievous. 

I am, as far as I know, the only person who has seen 
him or spoken to him, but others have had mischief done 
to them by him. For example there is the case of my 
mother's jewelled bracelet. Thomas, for that is our 
ghost's name, had taken a liking to this bracelet and one 
night he removed it from her dressing-table. When I came 
back from school he confided in me and I told him about 
insurance. You see, the bracelet was insured and money 
had already been received from an insurance company. 
At first Thomas did not understand, but after a few lessons 
he caught on. As you can see Thomas is not very smart. 

One night Thomas said he had an idea. I was astonish- 
ed but he persisted and at last I said I believed him. He 
told me that he was going to hide the bracelet in the sofa 
where my grandfather sat to read his papers and in the 
morning I would find it. That way, he said, you may get 
a reward and your mother will have to give the insurance 
money back to the company. This seemed to strike him 
as funny, though I could see nothing worth laughing at. 
I agreed to his plan as it was the only way to recover the 
bracelet. The next morning I collected fifty cents as 
Thomas' plan had worked.

By now you will have understood Thomas' peculiar 
characteristics and you will be wondering where he came 
from. I have often wondered too. but he refuses to speak 
of his human life. There are more stories that could be 
told of Thomas, but I cannot tell them now. I am looking 
forward to seeing him at Christmas!

Out in the raging storm 
The wind is loud and wild, 
While we are safe in our dorm. 
Where the temperature is mUd. 

But when the windows are opened 
We feel a sudden breeze 
Then the curtains start to blow and sail 
As if on a flying trapeze. 

We wake up at half -past twelve 
To find our feet out of bed. 
We pull them in as fast as we can 
And snuggle back into bed.

I first went to live in Brazil when I was two and a half 
months old and I have been there ever since. 

We have a very nice time at home. Sometimes a 
band of monkeys comes leaping by our house, swinging 
from limb to limb. They always try to steal our eggs. 
Those are just some of the beasts we have around! 

Last summer I spent some of my holidays on the 
Amazon. It is simply beautiful with wonderful trees and 
birds. Everything is so peaceful, only the noise of the 


birds and beasts and the sound of the Amazon rolling on 
its course. Once in a while some locusts do come along 
and, when they come — THEY COME! 

The sun was very hot there and I got a good tan as 
I went around without a shirt on. I also got bitten by 
mosquitoes because there is a lot of stUl water which pro- 
vides good places for them to hatch their eggs. There is 
a small lake near our farm which produced a lot of mos- 
quitoes. To prevent this we put about half an inch of oil 
all over the eggs and this drowned them. 

I spent the rest of the summer in Sao Paulo. I think 
Bra2dl is a wonderful and peaceful country to live in.

Outside the storm is roaring, 

Beating hard against the walls; 

The horns of ships are loudly groaning 

In harmony with the rain that falls. 

In harmony with the rain that falls. 

But inside, sheltered from thunder, 

Our candles are burning gay, 

In our lighthouse home, on a platform of stone. 

Where we stay through the stormy day. 

The storm may be quite rough indeed. 

And the thunder may roar and groan, 

But we need not fear in our lighthouse dear, 

Matter how much the storm may moan. 

We always welcome visitors 

Who pass by our cozy home. 

And keep them sheltered in our tall, old house. 

Our humble home, sweet home. 

In summer and spring we travel afar. 

Through woodland and on river; 

But we always return to where we were bom. 



By a fire where one need not shiver. 

Our old lighthouse shall be full of mirth, 

And never sad or forlorn; 

We'll always remember this house of our birth, 

The house in which we were bom. 

— R. J. Anderson, Form lA. 


Jake's trading post was very crowded one blustering, 
blizzardy, late autumn day, so crowded in fact, that old 
Jake himself was serving the multitude of half-breeds. 
Frenchmen and Indians. It was difficult to keep many of 
the half-drunk trappers in hand, but big George Kane was 
doing his utmost to control the mob. 

Old Jake was serving cheerfully enough, but v/hen he 
stopped long enough for you to get a good look at him you 
could see that his face bore a haggard, v/eary look. 

After a while the crowd died away as the hardy bush- 
men went back to their respective tents or cabins. It was 
only then that George Kane noticed the hopeless expression 
on the trader's face and he asked him what the reason was 
for his attitude. "I'm acting like this", said Jake "because 
all these hardy but lonely trappers are looking forward to 
their mail packet before they leave for their game trails, 
and the mail has been delivered to the Clear River Post 
about one hundred miles to the south." 

"Don't worry", said George, "I'll start tomorrow morn- 
ing for Clear River and I'll be back in a week with the 

It would take too long to describe the physical torture 
and the hardships of that long trip through the wind and 
snow, but suffice to say that it would have killed a lesser 
man than Kane. 

Six days had gone by before Big George was seen 
driving his weary dogs down the trail to the post. "Here's 
the packet", he panted as he threw a leather satchel down 
on the counter. 


The old trader thankfully lifted the small satchel and 
breathlessly opened it with trembling fingers. To his sur- 
prise and amazement it did not contain the bundle of last 
minute mail for the company of trappers. Instead it en- 
closed only one small, thin letter. With weary and in- 
quiring fingers he rapidly tore the seal and opened the 
letter. It contained, on a small slip of paper, four dyna- 
mically commanding words. Despondently Jake read them 
"WRITE FOR THE RECORD". He immediately drop- 
ped in a dead faint! 

— R. L. Martin, Form II Al 


Do you know that during the war, more people were 
killed here at home than where the fighting took place? 
Well it's a fact. 

Somebody is going somewhere in a hurry. There is a 
red light and they think they can just make it. Nine times 
out of ten they do get across. But there is always that 
one chance of being hit by an automobile. Most accidents 
are caused by carelessness. If everybody would follow the 
simple rule of "Safety First" it would cut down the acci- 
dent toll by over sixty percent. 

I will tell you the story of a boy who was hit by a 
truck while riding his bicycle. 

It was a Saturday morning and two boys were riding 
their bicycles along a highway leading out of Montreal. 
They were going on a hike, and one of them was wearing 
on his back a heavy pack which contained some canned 
food, a loaf of bread, a tin box of matches, and some blan- 

They were talking of where they would go and what 
they would do. They were just rounding a bend in the 
highway. Behind them was a large ice truck going about 
forty miles an hour. The truck was very close to the side 
of the road, and, as it rounded the bend, there was a 


terrific crash. One of the bicycles skidded along the road 
with an awful scraping sound and then it crumpled up and 
lay there. 

The boy was stunned for a moment, but when he re- 
gained his senses he screamed. His left leg was horribly 
twisted and he knew it was broken. His right leg was 
numb, and he was bleeding all over from minor cuts. There 
was also a bad gash on his left leg. 

He was taken to a hospital and patched up. But for 
the rest of his life one leg would be nearly two inches 
shorter than the other. 

The trouble is that most people think that the only 
person who can be hurt is the other fellow. 

If that boy had not had his back protected he would 
have been killed. I know how all that felt for, you see. 
that person was myself. 

— R. A. O. Brown, IIAl. 


How many of you have ever been duck shooting? 
Well, if you have, you are lucky and if you haven't, you 
are really missing something. I shall attempt to describe 
a shoot we had. 

It was late autumn and there was a strong wind knif- 
ing in from the west. My father, my brother, and I were 
huddled in a "blind" made of canvas with dried marsh 
grass sewn to it, in a pond covered with wild rice. Inci- 
dentally, ducks love to feed on wild rice. We stared 
glumly out at the decoys in front of us. It was six o'clock 
and they should be coming by now. Suddenly Dad whis- 
pered to us to "freeze". A small bunch of "blue bUls" 
were circling ready to come into our decoys. They sur- 
veyed the scene, decided it was safe and glided in to land 
about thirty yards away. We slowly rose, put our shot- 
guns over the top of the blind and then the barrage began. 
We got about seven and the rest "scooted off". They kept 


coming into us all morning until about twelve o'clock and 
then they stopped. We rolled up our blind, put the de- 
coys, the ducks we had shot, and our Golden Labrador 
" Tetrtej/er into the bow of the boat and headed back for 

It had been a fine shoot. We had a nice bag of mal- 
lards, teal, blue bills, blacks and a wood duck that Dad 
had shot. 

What more could you want! 

— S. E. Woods, Form IIB. 



Having started out the season with only one Old 

Colour and a squad of very inexperienced players, the 

rugby team can look back on the season with the satisfac- 

^-tJOIfwhicl^ comes from a job well done. The team showed 

steadyu-^tfiprovement both in skill and in team-play with 

'each successive game. 

It is imfortunate that our captain should have been 
prevented by Olness from playing in the last game — but 
that is all in the luck of the game. The important thing 
was the way the team rose to the occasion, as one man, to 
meet the emergency. Few J.S. teams have shown a fight- 
ing spirit to equal them on that day! 


The following have been awarded First Team Rugby 
Colours for the 1946 season: — E. M. Hoffmann, I. B. Mc- 
Rae, P. A. C. Ketchum, W. J. H. Southam.R. M. McDer- 
ment, S. E. Woods, I. B. Bruce, C. N. Pitt, D. V. Oatway,

At Toronto, October 19: Won 26-5 

The School opened up very slowly, although the Prep, 
team was much lighter and younger. A fumbled kick gave 
U.C.C. the ball deep in our territory and enabled them to 
score an unconverted touchdown early in the first quarter. 
T.C.S. opened up in the second quarter with Ketchum and 
Hoffmann scoring an unconverted touchdown each. The 
kihool's superior weight began to tell in the second half 
and the game ended in a 26-5 victory for T.C.S. -.*.,,.^^ 

The Prep, team is to be congratulated on a fine dis- 
play of fighting spirit and good tackling against rather 
heavy odds. 

T.C.S.-- Hoffmann (Capt.), Ketchum, McRae, Southam i, Woods, 
Bruce. Pitt, McDerment, Weicker, Gundy, Oatway, Martin. Suba: 
Osier i, Brinckman. Manager: Tench. 

At Port Hope, October 22: Won 11-10 

The return game against Lakefield was, as is nearly 
always the case, the closest and most hard-fought one of 
the season. The School opened up the scoring with an 
unconverted touchdown late in the first quarter. 

In the closing minutes of the second quarter an un- 
converted touchdown by Bums of Lakefield tied up the 
score at half-time. 


In the third quarter a T.C.S. fumble was recovered 
by the Grove and run back for a touchdown which was 

_ not con verted. The School retaliated with a touchdown 
which was successfully converted. The game ended with 

' TiC i S i on the Lakefield one yard line and the score 11-10 
in favour of the School. 

T.C.S. — Hoffmann (Capt.), Ketchum, McRae, Southam i, Woods, 
Bruce, Pitts, McDerment, Gundy, Weicker, Oatway, Bruce, Martin. 
Subs: Osier i, Brodeur, Walrath, Brinckman, Gill, Muntz. Manager: 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, October 26: Won 23-8 

The School got off to a very sticky start and Ballentine 
of St. Andrevv^'s went over for an early touchdown which 
was converted. A successful, short forward pass to Mc- 
Derment at centre field seemed to put T.C.S. into gear and 
thgjtv, drove for a touchdown which was carried over by 
•"'^McRae and successfully converted. Later on in the second 
W^-- "-quarter another drive brought a touchdown by Ketchum 
which was not converted. The Saints kicked for a rouge 
in the closing minutes of the half. 

The last half of the game saw the School dominating 
the play in all departments. Hoffmann scored an un- 
converted touchdown early in the third quarter and 
Southam also scored a touch which was converted. The 
School also kicked for a rouge. The final score was 23-8 
in favour of T.C.S. 

T.C.S. — Hoffmann (Capt.). Ketchum, McRae, Southam i, Woods, 
Bruce, Pitt, McDerment, Oatway, Tench, Weicker, Gundy. Subs: 
Martin, Osier i, Brodeur, Brinckman, Gill. 


At ToroJito, October 30: Lost 18-6 

This game produced some excellent football by both 
teams. Ridley's passing attack was a feature of the game 
and T.C.S., with their attack rather blunted by the loss of 


their captain and star bucker-passer-kicker Hoffmann, 
showed considerable skill and determination in their de- 
fensive work as well as some good spurts on the attack. 
The tackling of both teams was excellent. (^ 

The School opened up the scoring with an unconverted ' 
touchdown on a reverse buck by McRae. They also kicked 
for a rouge later in the same quarter. A forward pass 
brought Ridley a touchdown towards the end of the first 
quarter and the convert was successful. The second quar- 
ter saw both teams striving for a break and the half ended 
with no further score. 

In the third quarter Ridley put on considerable pres- 
sure and scored a converted touchdown, on a T.C.S. fumble 
behind their own goal. A good pass attack brought Ridley 
another "touch" and convert towards the end of the quar- 
ter. The last quarter saw a strong rally by the School 
which took them deep into Ridley territory on several 
occasions, but they failed to score. The final scor'^^aff"^ 
18-6 in favour of Ridley. ^""^^ 

T.C.S. — Ketchum (Vice-Capt. ), McRae, Bruce, Southam i, Pitt. 
Woods, McDerment, Osier i, Weicker, Gundy, Oatway, Tench. Subs: 
Martin, Brodeur, Muntz. 

The House Games 

The three games of the inter-house series provided 
some of the best football we have seen around the J.S. for 
several years. Rigby under their captain Hoffmann pro- 
duced a modified version of American football which 
proved to be very effective whOe Orchard stuck to more 
conventional football under their captain Ketchum. The 
blocking of both teams was outstanding. 

The first game was won by Rigby by a 7-6 score. 
Hoffmann scored a converted touchdown for Rigby and 
McRae did the same for Orchard. Late in the third quar- 
ter Hoffmann kicked the winning rouge for Rigby. 


In the second game Orchard eked out a last minute 
victory by a score of 11-10 after a very even and hard- 
fought game. Bruce accounted for Orchard's two touch- 
downs, one of which was converted, while Hoffmann did 
the same for Rigby. 

The third game was played after a day's rest. This 
game was a hard-fought as the other two in spite of the 
score. Rigby got off to a fast start with two touchdowns 
early in the game. Orchard came back strongly with a 
touchdown by McRae and another by Bruce neither of 
which was converted. At half time it looked like any- 
body's ball-game. Rigby put on strong pressure in the 
second half and Hoffmann scored a touchdown on a long 
run which was not converted. Shortly aftei^wards a pass 
to Southam brought another touchdown which was con- 
verted. The last play of the game saw another touchdown 
for Rigby with Hoffmann going over behind a stone-wall 
of blockers. A forward pass to Southam completed the 
convert. Final score 26-10 in favour of Rigby. 

Rigby — Hoffmann (Capt.), Southam i, Pitt, Wright, Muntz, 
Clark, Weicker, Robertson, Walrath, Symons, Brodeur, Oatway, 
Osier i. Subs: Church i, Adamson i, Christie.

The soccer team had a successful season with one win, 
a tie, and one loss. Play was well up to the standard of 
previous years. This year saw our first soccer match 
with a U.C.C. Prep. team. We hope to be able to keep this 
connection up.

1 he Record is published six times a year, m the months oj October, December, 

February, April, May and July. 

Authorized as Second Class Mail, Post Office Department, Ottawa. 


The Record is fifty years old. Begun in 1898 and 
containing only eight pages, the School magazine has de- 
veloped and flourished since then until it has attained its 
present size of around 600 pages a year. Through all 
these years and all the numerous changes it has undergone 
the Record has established and maintained a name for it- 
self which to-day holds its own with the best of the English 
public school publications. This is a reputation of which 
we are justly proud and which all boys should strive to 
keep and make even better. 


The Record has come a long way since its rather un- 
pretentious beginning half a century ago. An actual his- 
tory of it will be foiuid elsewhere in this issue. However, 
several points are worth repeating. One is the fact that 
the boys gradually took over the running of the magazine 
until to-day there are only two masters that have anything 
to do with its organization. With the students doing the 
majority of the work as they are now, it has become much 
more of a School magazine than it was when the masters 
produced it. Also, the part played by the Old Boys cannot 
be over-emphasized. It is almost entirely through their 
support and help that the Record has become so well-known 
throughout the world. The very first editorial pointed out 
that the Record was published for the Old Boys as well as 
for the School and this idea holds true to-day. The interest 
taken by the Old Boys in the School and all its activities 
certainly merits the work done in publishing such a maga- 
zine as ours. 

There is no doubt that the Record, during its lifetime, 
has been improved many times, yet to call it anywhere near 
perfect would be ridiculous. The Record has many faults 
— all of which are usually pointed out most vociferously 
after an issue is published. Some of these rantings of the 
student body are justified, some are merely useless and ill- 
founded criticisms of minor importance. It is true that 
the majority of the boys have little or nothing to do with 
the Record and thus they naturally feel remote from it. The 
literary section is really the only one for which all boys 
have a chance to write. Yet if more boys took an interest 
in this section and made an effort to write something — ^not 
just an English assignment — it is certain that the calibre 
would be better. Except for contributions, the Record is 
done entirely by the staff. This is a regrettable fault, yet 
one about which little can be done as it would be impossible 
to put out the Record with any degree of efficiency if the 
staff were not limited to a very few. With this in mind, 
and also realizing that there are many useful criticisms 


offered which would improve the Record, we are going to 
begin a new department in the magazine in which letters 
to the Editor will be published. All letters, of course, may 
not be printed, but those containing sound and helpful ideas 
and complaints (we would even accept a compliment now 
and then!) will certainly be brought to the attention of the 
readers. This section need not be confined to the School. 
Letters from any Old Boys will also be welcomed. Many 
other sections of the Record have been criticized, and while 
it is impossible to discuss them all here, we think that 
through the medium of letters to the editor, they can not 
only be brought to our notice but to that of the readers as 

The editorial page — which, incidentally, is probably the 
most criticized of all sections in the Record — need not be 
left solely to the Editor. If anyone, including those who so 
loudly criticize it, has something worth while writing about, 
he will certainly be given space to say what he wants. In 
fact, other editorials would be welcome providmg they are 
not merely efforts to retaliate against some person or group 
of people who have in some way slighted the author. As 
many as three or four editorials would be willingly printed 
if they were available and through these, again, more peo- 
ple could contribute to the Record. 

Under an impressive new heading, and an energetic 
new editor, the Feature section, which has spluttered along 
feebly for the past few years, has definitely come to life. 
We hope future editors will continue to make this section 
a permanent fixture, for from it can arise many interest- 
ing and amusing articles. A special new feature will be 
started in the next issue which should provide a great deal 
of entertainment and also a wide scope for the writer. 

May the Record continue to flourish in the future as 
successfully as it has during its first fifty years of publica- 

— J.B.F. 



Carol Service 

The annual Carol Service was held on Sunday, Decem- 
ber 15, with many visitors and Old Boys present to heax 
what proved to be an excellent and satisfying performance 
by the School Choir. 

The Service was introduced by the singing of Silent 
Night in the Chapel lobby and "Adeste Fideles" as the pro- 
cessional hymn, the School joining lustily in the latter. 

The special music opened with Bachs' Chorale "Break 
Forth O Beauteous Heavenly Light" followed by the Carol 
"Joseph and the Angel". These two numbers were in 
direct and pleasing contrast, the Chorale slow with sustain- 
ed tone and intricate harmony, the organ assisting in build- 
ing up gradually to the climax. The very good tonal balance 
of the choir was most noticeable in this. "Shepherds. Shake 
Off Your Drowsy Sleep", was a bright and cheerful carol 
followed by the Junior Choristers singing "Our Brother is 


Bom". They excelled in this with good tone and clear 
diction especially in the chorus. 

A new carol introduced this year was "Gk)od people, 
give ear", a fine example of an old English Traditional 
composition, the words quaintly expressed. The Solos in 
"Good King Wenceslas" were very creditably sung by Cur- 
tis as the King and Wilding as the Page, the latter' s treble 
voice being particularly good. "Twas in the Moon of Win- 
tertime" (Anderson), a 16th. Century Huron Indian Carol, 
is an established favorite, with its appealing three-part un- 
accompanied middle section. Then followed "The Carol of 
the Ox and the Ass", an old Carol in a modern and rather 
difficult setting, a fine example of unusual harmonies and 
varied expression. 

"Ding-Dong Merrily on High" was sung with evident 
enjoyment by the Choir and was much appreciated by the 
congregation. Handel's "And the Glory of the Lord" from 
"The Messiah" was very good indeed, with the Choir per- 
forming faultlessly. 

This item concluded the special music in a beautiful 
service which in the opinion of all those present was the 
best Carol service ever presented at the School. The Choir, 
and especially Mr. Cohu as organist and Choir master, was 
responsible for this, as they had attained a very high 
standard of perfection. The traditional nine lessons were 
well read by the chosen representatives from each of the 
forms in the Senior School, one from the Junior School and 
the Choir, continuing with readings by the Head Sacristan, 
the Head Prefect, and the Headmaster. 

The complete programme was as follows:

The Blessing. 

Recessional Hymn No. 76 — "While Shepherds Watched". 

On December 8, the chaplain gave a short sermon tell- 
ing of the origin of carols. He mentioned the interesting 
fact that many carols had their beginning in old pagan 
dances and religious rituals. Travelling minstrels often 
made them up spontaneously, and they were songs of the 
people, which is probably the reason for their popularity. 
Old drinking songs as well as songs telling us of the life 
of Christ had their place. 

Mr. Bagley finished by pointing out how many good 
accounts of ancient times are obtained from carols and how 
useful thev have been. 



On Sunday, January 12, the Rev. E. R. Bagley preach- 
ed his first sermon of 1947, choosing as his text the first 
verse of the sLxtieth chapter of Isaiah, "Arise, shine for 
thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon 
thee". He illustrated this with the story of the three wise 
men, who had seen a new constellation in the heavens 
which gave forth a new light. This, he said, leads us to 
man's idea of Gk)d, which is usually a conception of some- 
thing great, omniscient and omnipotent. Therefore God 
made himself a little child, and came down to earth from 
heaven to give us a new light, the light of truth, and to 
teach us to worship him not with awe but with a true 
understanding of the principles of Christianity. 

Jesus was divine because he was perfectly human, and 
to-day humanity is far below the example set us in Jesus 
Christ. We must therefore strive to spread the under- 
standing of Christianity throughout the world, and let the 
hght of the truth shine on all. That is the Spirit of 

On the Simday next before Advent, the Rev. E. R. 
Bagley spoke in Chapel. He introduced his theme by say- 
ing that, although the old testament was extremely na- 
tional, and the new testament extremely individual, there 
was no conflict between the two. He told us that the 
prophets had got closer and closer to the idea of the in- 
dividual and then quoted several passages from the new 
testament to show how Christianity combined these two 

The Chaplain then pointed out that Christ had come 
to the Jews at a time when they were the only people who 
had preserved their nationality despite the influence of the 
Roman Empire. After the invasions of the barbarians, 
nationalism flourished under Christianity. Christianity 
brought out the finer characteristics of both the nation 


and the individual, and the order "Go and preach the gos- 
pel to every creature", now takes on a new meaning 
Surely the Eastern nations as well as the Western, the 
black peoples as well as the white, deserve the advantages 
of Christianity. And so, Mr Bagley finished by pointing 
out that the duty of every Christian is to do his small part 
in the spreading of the Gospel. 

Visit of The Kev. Harding Priest 

On Sunday, January 25, the School was honoured to 
hear an address by the Rev. Harding Priest, associate sec- 
retary of the Board of Religious Education in Canada. 

He took for his text an excerpt from the 2nd Book of 
the 4th Chapter of Exodus, "What have you got in your 
hand?" This is the question that God asked Moses in the 
wilderness, and is the one which is daily put before us. 
Youth controls the future, and this is a trust which should 
not be taken lightly. Our lives, said Mr. Priest, are not 
toys but valuable tools, given us by God to be used pro- 

He pointed out that in this life some of us are given 
great power, but that few of these can keep their sense 
of balance when they feel the reins of power in their hands. 
If we misuse this privilege of leadership given us by God, 
we are betraying His trust. 

Mr. Priest ended by saying that we must prepare our- 
selves to meet the problems of the world, for either we con- 
quer them, or they will conquer us. 

The Headmaster 

On Sunday, February 2 ( Septuagisima Sunday), the 
Headmaster read the first of a series of short talks given 
by Professor C. S. I^ewis of Oxford University. Mr. Ket- 
chum pointed out that during the early years of his life 
Mr. Lewis had been an atheist, but that he has recently 


bt-come one of the greatest Christian Apologists in Eng- 
land. He delivered his series of talks during the height of 
England's troubles in the last few years, and they created 
a great deal of interest. 

This first talk contained two main points. One, that 
nearly everyone, though not always ready to admit it, tries 
to adhere to a common law or to standards of behavior. 
These he called the Laws of Nature, simply because it is 
only human to try to live up to them. Secondly, he said 
that people often don't come up to these standards, not 
because they don't believe in them, but because they 
haven't got the strength of character, or whatever we like 
to call it, to live up to their own set code of behavior. His 
argument was that this must be true, or why would we 
bother to apologise for things we did or did not do? 

The author's conclusion was that the only way we can 
live up to our own moral code is to practise the principles 
of Christianity.

Norman Seagram has presented a much needed and 
appreciated gift of two dozen selected hockey sticks to the 
First team. 


Over fifty friends of Bill Strong have given a magni- 
ficent trophy to the School in his memory. As Bill was 
one of our most skilful and enthusiastic skiers, the Chal- 
lenge Trophy will be awarded annually to the best skier 
in the School, selected on the basis of a competition. The 
contributors have also given a fund to the School, the in- 
terest from which will provide an individual trophy every 

Bill Strong was at T.C.S. from 1939 until 1942; he was 
a Senior and a member of the first football team and of 
the ski team. In September, 1942, he entered McGill but 
left in February, 1943, to enlist in the Air Force. On 
September 6. 1944, he was instantly killed when his air- 
craft crashed near Montcbello, P.Q. 


We are indeed proud to have this trophy in Bill's 
memory, and all his many friends are grateful to Jim 
Thompson for the part he played in organizing this fitting 
memorial. Jim was Captain of the Ski Team of 1942 and 
one of Bill's closest friends. 

The following made contributions to the fund in 
memory of Bill: —

Mrs. H. Y. Russel of Montreal and her sons Bruce 
('29-'37) and Keith ('34-'39) have endowed a prize at the 
School in memory of Dunbar Russel. It is to be a football 
given every year to the most promising boy on Littleside; 
the first award will be made for the year 1946. 

Hugh Dunbar Sutherland Russel came to the School 
in September, 1931 and left in June, 1934. In his final 
year he was in the V McGill Form and played on Bigside 
Football, Bigside Hockey and Middleside Cricket. He was 
an exceptionally good boxer and won the Bradbum Cup. 
Entering McGill he studied engineering, taking a year of 
practical experience in British Columbia. He enlisted in 


the Navy in 1940 and was posted to Royal Roads with the 
first class. In May, 1942. he volunteered for submarine 
duty and after a course in England he was posted to the 
eastern Mediterranean as Sub-Lieutenant on H.M. Sub- 
marine "Traveller". On December 12, 1942, his ship was 
reported missing and nothing has been heard of the crew 
since then. 

We are proud to have this prize in memory of such 
a gallant officer and gentleman. 


It was announced in December that James A. Pater- 
son ('41-'43) had been chosen a Rhodes Scholar from the 
Province of Quebec, and the news thrilled all his friends. 
We can think of only two other T.C.S. boys who have won 
this high honour, Chris Eberts ('26-'29) and Stephen Cart- 
wright ('20-'26). It was a particularly close race as there 
were some four hundred candidates for the two Scholar- 
ships from the province and we are told that many of them 
had exceptionally high recommendations. One Scholar- 
ship nearly always goes to a French-Canadian. 

At T.C.S. Jim showed great promise in his work; he 
planned his studies with care, he was most conscientious 
in prosecuting his plan, and he brought understanding and 
a vivid interest into all discussions. He won first class 
honours in all his Middle School subjects with the excep- 
tion of French, in which he obtained a second, and he stood 
second in the competition for entry to the Naval College 
among some sixty successful candidates. 

In debating he was a natural leader, both on the floor 
of the House and in Committee; he was elected President 
of the Political Science Club and he showed unusual skill 
in runnmg the meetings and in the papers and "briefs" 
which he presented; he was a capable librarian and a most 
helpful member of the staff of "The Record". He also 


edited the "Fifth Form Magazine". He was appointed a 
Senior in his second year. 

At McGill, Paterson has continued his good work. Last 
spring he obtained first class standing in the second year 
honours course in economics and political science; he is a 
member of the Political Science Club, the Philosophical 
Club, the Political Economy Club and the Liberal Club. He 
was recently elected representative for the faculty of Arts 
and Science on the Students' Council and Chairman of the 
McGill Civil Liberties Union. He will go into residence at 
Oxford next October. 

The School congratulates Paterson and wishes him 
every success. 

Christmas Dinner and Entertainment 

A sudden hush fell over the throng seated at the gaily 
decorated tables in the great hall. The trumpets blared 
forth their stirring fanfare, at the end of which the herald 
stepped forward and read the proclamation of the feast. 

A colourful procession then entered the hall. First 
came the page, then the three cooks carrying platters on 
which was an immense boar's-head, a golden-brown turkey 
and a steaming plum pudding. Behind the cooks came two 
stalwart youths bearing the Yule log and last but not least, 
the jester. 

It was then that the choir arose on the balcony at the 
back of the hall and gave a beautiful rendition of three of 
the School's favourite carols "Ding Dong MerrUy on High", 
"Gk)od King Wenceslas", and "The First Noel". The effect 
of these much loved carols was increased by the fact that 
each Choir Boy carried a lighted candle, which stood out 
like shining stars in the dunly-lighted hall. 

Some time later when all had satisfied their appetites 
on one of the tastiest Christmas dinners ever eaten at 
School, the Headmaster called on Mrs. Kirkpatrick, the 


President of the T.C.S. Ladies' Guild, Toronto Branch, to 
present the following athletic cups: 

The Oxford Cup won by Cox i. 

The Cup for the most valuable player on Bigside Rugby 
won by Lawson i. 

The Bigside Rugby House Cup won by Brent House. 

The Bigside Soccer House Cup won by Bethune House. 

The Middleside Rugby House Cup won by Bethune 

The Littleside Rugby House Cup won by Brent House. 

The guests and boys then moved to the gym. where 
at 7.45 commenced the best Christmas entertainment that 
has been put on here for many years. The first number 
"Rory Aforesaid" was a comedy in one act produced by the 
T.C.S. Dramatic Society. It starred Peter Elliot as the 
slightly deaf judge, Campbell iii as the wily shepherd, Rory, 
Taylor i as the lawyer, Lawson i as MacCallum, Kent New- 
comb as Mrs. MacLean and Ronald Watts as the court 
officer. The scene for this excellent farce was set in a 
Scottish court-house and the accuser Mr. MacCallum be- 
comes slightly confused in court proceedings. The next 
number was an excellent rendition of Negro Spirituals sung 
by Butterfield i (who also played the guitar accompani- 
ment) Payne, Lawson i, Taylor i, Newcomb, and Stewart. 
The singers appeared as silhouettes against a deep blue 
background and the number was fittingly entitled "Fantasy 
in Blue". In the next number which brought a great many 
laughs, the silhouettes of Doctors dePencier and Berraing- 
ham performed various operations on Luxton. Next came 
a light satire on The Masters' Common Room which, need- 
less to say, put the audience in fits. As the curtain arose 
on the next number "Too Dense in the Dark" the stage was 
completely dark, but the piercing voices of Butterfield and 
Lawson i soon wrung almost continual laughter from the 
audience for the next five minutes. Last came the Bigside 
sliow and as usual it was the main attraction of the even- 
ing. After seeing this performance we think Harry Hyde 


has a great future in opera, and it surprises us that the 
beautiful chorus have not yet surpassed the "Rockettes" 
in fame. The show was built around the song "Rhythm in 
My Nursery Rh>Tnes". The original and novel arrange- 
ments of well-kno\\Ti nursery rhymes were very humorous. 

The dinner and entertainment will remain as a happy 
memory with all who attended them.

New Nursing Staff 

We were sorry to hear that Miss Mcllroy, our nurse 
since last September, had decided she could not continue 
her strenuous life at the School. 

In her place Miss Ryan has joined us and she will be 
assisted by Mrs. Brockenshire who helped out so nobly at 
the end of last term. 

We feel that the health of the School is in good hands. 

On behalf of the School, we extend our sincere sym- 
pathy and best wishes to John Ray who is now at home 
recovering from a serious eye injury. 

For the first time in the 50 years' history of The 
Record paper shortage has delayed the publica- 
tion of this number. We regret any inconvenience 
which has been caused to our readers. 



o E 6 A r t S 

On Saturday evening, December 7, the first debate of 
the School year was held in the Hall. The motion was: 
"Resolved that co-operation has done more for the world 
than competition". McDowell opened the debate for the 
government saying that the achievement of the modem 
world are due to co-operation ; he used the Roman Catholic 
Church in the Middle Ages as an example of the failure 
of competition and the later success of co-operation. Hyde, 
opening for the opposition, pointed out that our system of 
government would be a complete failure were it not for 
the element of competition. Payne expanded McDowell's 
argument, and told us that, were it not for co-operation, 
no a,tomic bomb would have been produced. Watts, the 
second opposition speaker, refuted McDowell's arguments 
on the Roman Catholic Church, saying that it was com- 
petition which had finally brought unity to this church, 
and then went on expanding this idea. Campbell iii sum- 
med up the government's point of view, saying that sports 
such as football and hockey could not be played were it 
not for co-operation, and he was followed by Campbell i 
who closed the case for the opposition by summing up their 
ideas and refuting some points of the government. After 
a rebuttal by McDowell the judges retired and several 
speeches were made from the floor. The house moved in 
favour of the government by a count of 37-28, while the 
judges' verdict was in favour of the opposition. This de- 
bate was quite good considering the short notice which the 
participants had received, and the attendance was unex- 
pectedly large in view of approaching examinations. 


On January 21, the second debate of the year was held 
with a team representing the Sixth Form for the Affirma- 
tive and one representing the Fifth for the Negative. The 
motion before the house was "Resolved that the Fair Sex 
should not use cosmetics". Newcomb, first speaker for 
the Affirmative stressed the fact that cosmetics were a 
deception and furthermore could not compare with true 
unadorned beauty. His points were well put and witty. 
Alley, first speaker for the Negative, putting his case for- 
ward very well, declared that the misuse of cosmetics by 
some, was no reason for abolishing them, and likened cos- 
metics to furniture which adds to the atmosphere of a 
house. Prentice for the Affirmative spoke of the harm 
caused by some of these cosmetics, while Wright i, second 
speaker for the Negative showed how different cosmetics 
may be used to advantage, their production providing a 
great field for employment. Taylor i, replying for the 
Affirmative, emphasized the deception in the use of cos- 
metics and deplored their use to replace the healthy out- 
door life which leads to true beauty. Fulford, last speaker 
for the Negative came back in fast order with some very 
witty and effective rebuttals. He also declared that the 
face was made for utility so that attempts to beautify it 
were quite effective and helped to give girls self-confidence. 
In closing he appealed to th house to consider the effect 
of cosmetics on their friends of the fair sex. Newcomb 
then replied wdth the rebuttal for the Affirmative, declar- 
ing that if cosmetics were not abolished many people would 
always misuse it, and in closing he pointed out that a house 
was man-made and needed furnishing but God gave the 
human being natural beauty. Several good speeches were 
then made from the floor, after which a division of the 
house was made, resulting in a 52-16 victory for the Nega- 
tive. The judges gave the verdict to the Negative also. In 
sununing up they said that both sides had debated very 
well and declared that it had been a very witty and en- 
joyable debate. In all it was one of the best debates here 
in recent years. 




On February 26, 1898, a thin, red-covered magazine en- 
titled "The Record" was first printed under the editorship 
of Mr. E. M. Watson, a master of the School at the time. 
In its editorial we find these words: "As the name implies 
it will be a Record of the School ; not only of all that takes 
place within her walls and playground, but of the doings 
and careers of that ever increasing body, who are just as 
much a part of the School, the Old Boys". Except for the 
addition of literary efforts of the boys, those very words 
are applicable to-day, in this, the fiftieth volume of the 
Record. For these fifty volumes it has been fulfilling that 

Earlier, about 1892, there had been another T.C.S. 
magazine, the Red and Black. Published at irregular in- 
tervals it had died out when its editors, L. M. ("Shadow") 
Lyon and C. S. Wilkie left the School several years later, 
though in one respect it did make history, by reporting two 
different School fires in the same issue. 

The Record was originally intended to be published 
six times a year but in 1910 it was reduced to three. While 
the School was at Woodstock in 1928-29, the Record under- 
went a complete change. For the first time literary con- 
tributions in the form of stories, essays, poems and even 
a page of jokes and puzzles, were included. During this 


period it appeared fortnightly, but with the return to Port 
Hope it reverted to the old system of publication once 
each term, though the inclusion of poems and stories writ- 
ten by the boys remained. In 1933 it reverted to the 
original plan calling for six issues a year, and then in 1936, 
after a contest, the present cover was decided upon. 

At first the Record was strictly a bulletin about School 
news, games of the teams, and Old Boys' Notes; but by the 
time of this 1936 issue it possessed much the same form as 
our present magazine, incorporating a School calendar, 
editorials. School News, Chapel Notes, literary contribu- 
tions in the form of stories, essays and poems, to which the 
humorous "Off the Record" section was added in 1938. 
sports news consisting of write-ups of various games play- 
ed by School teams, and the Old Boys' Notes. Added to 
this is the Junior School section first started in 1916 which 
is really a smaller edition of the Record in itself. The num- 
ber and quality of photographs has increased tremendously 
since the pictures of Dr. Bethune (Headmaster at the 
time) and of A. Lampman (an Old Boy) were proudly 
presented in the second volume as the first cuts to appear 
in the School magazine. To-day the Record also gives a 
pictorial view of our School life. In size and content too, 
the Record has grown until now it is at least six times as 
big as the thin original copies of eight pages. 

One issue of the Record is worthy of particular note. 
In 1940, on the occasion of the School's 75th Anniversary 
a special number of the Record was printed packed with 
pictures of the School at different times, and describing 
various phases of School life. In this copy were many 
stories of the history of the School, recollections by the 
different Headmasters and descriptions of present-day life 
at T.C.S. 

As the Record grew, more and more responsibility was 
handed over to the boys themselves. In the early issues 
most of the organizing had been done by a group of mas- 
ters assisted by a few boys. Gradually this procedure 


was reversed and in 1933 Reid became the first boy to be 
appointed Editor-in-Chief and to-day it is mainly produced 
by the boys with a master acting as adviser. The boy 
acting as editor-in-chief has the trying task of writing 
editorials as well as chasing after his assistants for most 
of the material. 

He has several assistant editors looking after the 
Sports, Literary, School News and Feature Departments. 
These boys, chosen on a basis of experience as reporters, 
look after certain material themselves and organize the 
work of their assistants. Besides these, there is a boy 
acting as Business Manager who is in charge of the ad- 
vertising. After the various items have been revised by the 
individual editors and then by the editor-in-chief, they are 
further checked by the advisory master and the Head- 
master. For the Junior School section, the material is sent 
in by the Principal. After gathering items of interest 
concerning the Old Boys, the Headmaster and the Secre- 
tary of the Old Boys' Association put the Old Boys' Notes 

The Record has become an integral part of T.C.S. life 
as it depicts our joyous days at School and at the same 
time gives boys the interesting experience of experiment- 
ing with journalism. 

R. L. Watts. Form VIA. 


It was a lazy, spring day and as I sat in "spare" my 
mind began to wander. H2 O— water; ah, for the lake this 
summer! My gaze turned to the campus and as I was thus 
occupied, a figure loomed up beside me and a voice rang 
out, "Now stop this fooling and settle .... the sentence re- 
mained unfinished; for through the window beside me 
sprang a tawny, brown body, and catlike landed in the aisle, 
throwing the study into confusion. I had had my first 
glimpse of Laddy. 


Laddy is a big, reddish-brown setter. He is of Irish 
descent (no, he doesn't talk blarney), and during the war 
became a mascot of the soldiers in Debert army camp in 
Nova Scotia. No doubt on account of some infringement 
of the rules, Laddy acquired a dislike for K.P., and was 
given by an army official to Mr. Ketchum. 

Laddy not only replaced the dog formerly belonging 
to the Headmaster, but has carried out his duties as mas- 
cot of the School in full. At T.C.S. he soon found out (pos- 
sibly through his commando training) that the ground 
floor windows of the classroom block made wonderful 
obstacles. However, he discovered that once in, it was not 
so easy to get out, and worse still, he had to listen to some 
human being drone on for forty minutes about simply 
nothing as far as he could see. So he gave up this practice 
and now only joins in the extra-curricular activities of the 
School. He has made friends with nearly everybody in 
the School and his fame has spread all over the Dominion 
and even to Bermuda. 

Once Laddy was lost for two days. After searching 
everywhere the doorman at the movie revealed that he had 
tried insistently for two nights to get in without a ticket. 
The feature being played was "Lassie Come Home". Laddy 
was for a long time chief mode of transportation for young 
"Nicki" Ketchum, that is, until the latter began to drive 
his own car at age three! 

We feel that Laddy has added much happiness to this 
little community, and that he deserves a prominent niche 
in the T.C.S. hall of fame.

On looking aroimd this term, we notice the passing 
of a familiar face. Actually, this old friend left us at the 
end of last term, but we did not feel the absence until this 
year. As with all that leave us, it has been replaced, but 


it is rapidly sinking into the oblivion of 1946 while its 
younger counterpart grows up with 1947. 

No more will generations of T.C.S. boys recall first the 
tireless, young face, later, the weary but not beaten look 
of experience. No more will teams on the playing field 
stop to stare, nor pupils in the classrooms gaze out the 
window in amazement at the indomitable "Batmobile". 
Many and varied stories can be heard around School about 
the vintage of Major Batt's former car. In reality, how- 
ever, it was a 1932, six cylinder, Willys-Knight, and one of 
the best cars built in its day. Just before its recent sale 
to the Port Hope police force, it was still capable of 65 
miles per hour, averaging about 23 miles to a gallon of gas. 
Its speedometer had clicked over the 100,000 mile mark, 
and its five good tires had felt the roads of England, 
France, Germany and Belgium. 

The old car was usually to be seen in front of the class- 
room block and thus bore the brunt of many a side-swipe. 
As a result. Major Batt is careful to keep his new Plymouth 
hidden away. The other day a suggestion that the plane 
in the gym. be replaced by the "Batmobile" was overheard. 
In spite of all this, we know that the old car is not yet 
dead, and we regret that this sad event brings to an end an 
era in the history of T.C.S.

In comparison with hockey, cricket, and football, bas- 
ketball is relatively new here but it now ranks with the 
"major" T.C.S. sports in popularity. Early records show 
that the first T.C.S. basketball team played home and home 
games with Peterborough Y.M.C.A. as far back as 1912. 
Originally, basketball was introduced here by Mr. Stirling, 
Physical Director at the time, as a sport for the off-seasons 
between football and hockey, and hockey and cricket. 
Dennistoun was captain of the team. Most of the boys

Rhodes Scholar for the Province of 







were new at the game and though they lost their two games 
39-33, and 31-25, great improvement was shown. For 
several years basketball hung on at T.C.S. and then fell 
into obscurity for eighteen years. 

The sport was revived again in 1934 under the coach- 
ing of Mr. Fourt. Games were played with neighbouring 
high schools, Pickering and St. Mark's. Led by Vaughn, 
the captain, who scored 178 points in the season, the team 
won six out of thirteen games played. Basketball was made 
a half First team colour sport, but in general the quality 
of the teams was poor. 

Then, in 1937, Mr. Dixon came to the team as coach 
to exert his energy in building it up. He found the players 
themselves enthusiastic, but there was little support from 
the School. In 1938, the first Junior team was formed, an 
important step in building up basketball at T.C.S. for it 
provided material for future senior teams, thus eliminating 
the necessity of starting from scratch to build a senior 
team. We have never had an outstanding Junior team but 
they have paid dividends, as shown the following year when 
the First team won nine games, including the last five in 
a row, and lost only three, all by close margins. Because 
of the team's Stirling record and the popularity it aroused 
in the School, basketball was made a full First team colour 

Unfortunately, in succeeding years the team rather 
fell from this standard and won only seven of twenty-three 
games played until Mr. Jarvis became coach in 1942. In 
the following season a team was entered in the Senior 
C.O.S.S.A. league with neighbouring high schools for the 
first time. In 1944 a Bantam (Littleside) team was created 
as a further training ground for future seniors, but un- 
fortimately due to lack of coaches lasted only a year. That 
year the Senior team tied with Port Hope High School for 
the league and won a thrilling two game total points series 
playoffs 68-56 (35-22, 33-34), only to lose out to Bowman- 


vjlle in the next round. Since then, the First team has 
never been out of the playoffs. 

After that year the School was plagued by a shortage 
of coaches and during 1945 and 1946 seasons, Mr. Hodgetts 
divided his time between the hockey and basketball First 
teams with admirable results. In both years the team got 
through to the playoffs only to be eliminated by the power- 
ful Peterborough Collegiate quintet which again looks tike 
the team to beat this year. After the war, exhibition games 
with Pickering, S.A.C. and the Alpha E>elta Phi's were re- 
sumed in addition to the regular C.O.S.S.A. league games. 
This year we are in the C.O.S.S.A. league with Peter- 
borough, Oshawa, Cobourg and Lindsay and exhibition 
games with Pickering, U.C.C, U.T.S., Alpha Delts, Port 
Hope Rascals and possibly S.A.C. 

Outstanding among T.C.S. opponents has been Bill 
Gourlay, who personally led S.A.C. to two defeats over 
T.C.S. 58-16, and 88-19, by scoring forty-one and thirty-one 
points respectively in 1940. Always a scourage to T.C.S.. 
last year he scored twenty points when the Alpha Delts 
played here, and this year he collected twenty- three in lead- 
ing them to victory. Ever since 1912 T.C.S. has found 
Peterborough hard to beat and in the last two years they 
eliminated T.C.S. in the playoffs each time. One of the 
most thrilling games last year occurred when the First 
team edged Peterborough 26-25. T.C.S. has had its share 
of close games including two victories over Oshawa last 
\ear, each by one point, 37-36 and 33-32. In 1916 the 
School saw its first tie game 37-37 against Cobourg which 
was won in overtime. The 1939 team had perhaps the most 
successful record but of late T.C.S. has turned out several 
fair teams. Among the stars in recent years have been 
Ed. Gordon, Rusty Keyes, "Burr" French, Hart Drew, Bill 
Carhartt and Wilier Toole. 

Offensively and defensively, however, the strength 
of a basketball team lies in the ability of its five members 
to work together. In this game the emphasis is on body 



control and exactness of execution rather than on brute 
strength. Thus a degree of precise team play that no other 
sport approximates, gives this sport its great popularity. 
Unfortimately there has never been a high enough quality 
of basketball at T.C.S. for it to really catch on but with 
more material each year its prospects are bright.

(With apologies to Lewis Carroll) 

Alice, kept in the house because of the rain, felt bored. 
Even her two kittens failed to amuse her on this dreary 
morning. She was just wondering if any more peculiar 
adventures would happen to her, and hoping that they 
would, when her eyes happened to light on a small open 
window in the wall of the room. The strange part about 
this small open window was that it had never been there 
before! The wall had been blank there for as long as she 
could remember. However, after her recent adventures in 
Wonderland and behind the Looking Glass, she was quite 
prepared to believe anything. Being inquisitive by nature, 
Alice rose, put her kittens in their basket with their mother, 
and went to the window to look through. 

Before she knew it, Alice was through the window 
and into an entirely different place. The air was fresh 
and exhilerating, the countryside neat and orderly. Be- 
fore her was an enormous sign, designed in flowers, which 
read "Bethuneland" in large colourful letters. 

"Of course", thought Alice, "I should have known 
when I saw the open window." 

Directly ahead of her was a large forest and the path 
she was on led directly to it. Alice, looking back and not 
seeing any sign of the window, her original point of en- 
trance, shrugged her shoulders and set off along the trail. 
Suddenly, as she was passing under a high stone-wall, a 
deep bass voice muttered a few words, and looking up 


quickly, Alice saw a funny fat thing perched on the wall, 
watching her. 

"Oh, who are you?" she cried. 

"My name is Humpty Dumpty James and I just sit 
here all day." With this, the rotund fellow began to sing 
jingles in his loud voice. 

"Dear me." thought Alice as she moved quickly on, 
"What a strange person". 

When she reached the forest she came to a fork in the 
road. A sign-post pointed to each road, the one to the 
left was labeled "Left" and the one to the right. "Right". 
Being right-handed, Alice went right and presently she 
arrived at a little house in front of which stood two queer- 
looking individuals. 

"What are your names?" asked Alice. 

"rm Tweedle Bill Brewer, and — " the first one said. 

*Tm Tweedle Burr French. Who — " the second con- 

"- - Are you?" they finished in unison. 

"My name is Alice," she replied, but as she spoke, the 
two rushed off, not paying any attention to her at all. 
"Oh dear", said Alice, "people do get about so!" So say- 
ing she moved past the cottage and into a large clearing 
in the trees. Here she saw a small fellow, weeping quietly, 
facing a large crowd of cheering people. 

"Who is that?" asked Alice of the person next her. 

"Why that's Willie 'Mock Turtle' Herridge", was the 
reply and just then the "Mock Turtle" spoke, sighing softly 

as he recited 

"Will you move a little faster?" said the senior to his fag, 
"There's a prefect right behind you and he'll think we're 
playmg tag. 

See how eagerly the new-boys hold the doors just see 

their stance!

"You can really have no notion how delightful it will be 
"V\Tien a prefect fans a new-boy with his paddle 'cross his 

But the fag replied 'too hard, too hard', and g^ve a look 

Said he thanked the senior kindly but he would not join 

the dance. 
Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join 

the dance. 
Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join 

the dance. 

"What matters it how hard he hits," his privileged friend 

"When you go to sleep at night, you always lie upon your

So do not sag, beloved fag, but come and join the dance. 
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the 

dance ? 
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the 


As he finished, the whole group danced about the 
clearing in twos, chanting these last lines until suddenly 
somebody cried out "Run" and everyone ran 'tUl all had 
disappeared and Alice found herself alone - - at least so 
she thought. Suddenly from nowhere came a low sound 
of laughter. Gradually the volume increased until Alice 
had to cover her ears with her hands. Then she saw 
something very strange - - a grin. Nothing else but a grin. 
Then a face slowly materialized. It was freckled and had 
one dimple. Suddenly the laughter stopped and the grin 


"Hello, I'm Cheshire-Cat Wells". 

"Hello, I'm Alice," said Alice. 

"Who asked you?" said a voice behind her, very rude- 
ly. Alice turned around and saw a long table set for a 
tea party and at it were seated three people. The first one 
grinned, twitched his nose, and said, 

"I'm Dick 'March-hare' Carson, since you ask, and if 
you didn't you should have!" 

The second one, wearing an enormous top hat and 
glasses added, "And I'm Willie Welsford, the Mad-Hatter, 
if you insist, and you should," and he laughed hideously. 

Then the two creatures picked up the othei', who was 
asleep, shoved him into the tea-pot head first and said in 

"And he's Wilbui- Dormouse Hamilton". Then they 
pulled his struggling body out of the hot tea, and put him 
back on his chair, where he promptly went back to sleep. 
"Won't you have some tea?" 

"No, thank you", said Alice, "I must go, really." And 
she did. Continuing along the road, she suddenly saw a 
figure rush out of the bushes, bump into her, pull out of 
his pocket a large gold watch, muttering "Oh dear, it's half- 
past Tuesday. Late again", and rush off. Alice said aloud, 
"Now who could that be?", and was quite startled when a 
voice from above her answered "That's Yan 'VvHiite Rabbit' 
Campbell, didn't you know?" Alice looked around and 
saw seated on a big toadstool, a throne as it were, a large 
caterpillar swinging a squash racquet in each of his many 
feet. Across the front of the toadstool was written in 
large letters "J. KNIGHT — faulty advice to all". Alice was 
just opening her mouth to speak to him, when he vanished, 
leaving the squash racquets behind. Alice picked up one 
of them and swung it gently but the racquet kept on swing- 
ing and pulled Alice after it until they reached a small 
cottage from which came sounds of crying and violent 
sneezes accompanied by mild oaths. Alice, grateful that 
she had only picked up one racquet, dropped the now docile 



one, entered the open door and found herself in a large, 
peppery kitchen. As a matter of fact, the kitchen was so 
peppery that Alice couldn't suppress a sneeze; so she didn't. 
After the sneeze, she looked around and saw through the 
clouds of pepper a cook pouring pepper into a cauldron of 
soup while a figure which resembled a Queen of Hearts and 
holding a baby commanded "More, off with your bead, 
more!" in loud tones. Then Alice saw a familiar grin hover- 
ing over the hearth and when it had materialized she said, 

"Hello, Cheshire-Cat Wells." 

"Hello, Alice," answered the queer animal. "Do you 
know the Queen and the Baby?" 

"No, I don't," answered Alice, "should I?" 

"Well, this is Nogi 'Queen of Hearts' Newcomb, and 
the brat is sometimes known as Nat Buf field, or even as 
Butterfield ii, although he prefers the former. Queen and 
Brat - - this is Alice." 

Introductions finished. Alice sat down, trying hard not 
to sneeze. Her friend the cat had vanished again, and she 
didn't quite know what to say. Just at that moment, how- 
ever, a messenger of some sort ran in the door, blew a blast 
on a bugle and cried 

"The King of Hearts holds a trial terminated by a 
fanning this afternoon. All are invited." 

After another blast on his horn, he ran out again, 
sneezing. Alice was a little dumbfounded, but when the 
Queen ran out of the door, throwing the bawling child at 
her, she caught it and followed. The child, however, after 
a few steps, oinked instead of bawled, and Alice found she 
was carrying a red-haired piglet with a Bermudian accent. 
Quickly dropping him, she raced after the disappearing 

Soon they arrived at the Court. It was filled full of 
strange characters of whom Alice recognized only a few. 
The judge was the Rev. King of Hearts Bagley whose word 
was law. He was seated on a high throne beside the Queen 
who cried "off with his head" every few minutes. Sud-

denly the King clapped two paddles together, looked 
severely at Alice and roared to the White Rabbit, who was 

•'Read the verdict!" 

"No, no, my dear," continued the Queen. "The verdict 
comes after. Read the charge. Herald!" 

The White Rabbit arose, carefully smoothed his black 
hair (only on his head) and gazed about the court. Then 
he carefully unrolled a long scroll, tripped over it, recovered 
his balance and dignity, and read in a loud voice, 

"The new boy's hair was quite a scare 
And made the Senior smirk. 
The senior's fair, his only care 
To make his poor fag work." 

Immediately the Dormouse Hamilton beside Alice be-

' "Good riddance," thought Alice as she watched the 
trial. Quickly tiring of this she rose to leave whereupon 
everyone stopped talking, except the Dormouse who 
snored loudly so Alice said "Boo" to the poor fellow and 
scared him so that he began shaking. Alice ran out, and 
once outside, she followed the first path she saw. Soon she 
reached a log beside the path, and she sat down to rest. 
The scene faded away and she found herself back in her 
own home, in front of the roaring fire with her kittens. 

"Oh dear," she sighed, "just when I was enjoying it. 
That's quite the nicest place I've been to yet," and she went 
back to sleep.

Editor's Note: The following is reprinted from the 
first number of the Record, published in February. 1898. 
The author was at that time an Old Boy. 

He's a young rara avis, 

He'll always behave as 

A mixture of angel and divil; 

His manners are various, 

Temper precarious, 

He's rollicking, reckless and civil. 

He's modest, courageous — 

His boldness, outrageous — 

He's never just what you expect him. 

But the more that you see 

Of what he can be, 

The more you will always respect him. 

He's slow to offend, 

But quick to defend 

When his honour and courage are doubted. 

He'll give his last penny 

(That's if he has any). 

And never care twopence about it. 


In fight or in play 

He goes in to stay 

Till his best is done, you may depend, 

For in fight or in play 

There's only one way — 

To play the game out to the end. 

He's loyal and true 

And he never could do 

Any cowardly action or mean; 

For the one, single rule, 

That is taught in the School 

Is "Fear God and Honour the Queen". 

But this young rara avis 
Will always behave as 
A mixture of angel and divil; 
He's proud and he's courteous, 
Mischievous, virtuous, 
Rollicking, reckless and civil. 


The rider paused on a green-tinged ridge. He looked 
down and not far below he saw a sandy arroyo which he 
followed with his eyes until he could do so no longer. Its 
twistings and windings soon lost it to view behind ridges 
which bordered it on both sides and similar to his. Then 
all he saw was more rangeland dotted with sage and 
mesquite and candlebush. Beyond this stretch of desert- 
like expanse lay a range of mountains still a blue-brown in 
the early light, but green in the light of day, for rain had 
been plentiful this summer in the mountains and grass 
abounded in the high country. One mountain, a little higher 
than the rest attracted the rider's attention. On the very 
top were two large rocks which formed a perfect saddle, 
as one was in the shap of a cantle, the other of a pommel. 


At the foot of the mountain, a dark green patch gave 
evidence of a grove of cotton-woods and oaks. This was 
evidently what the horseman had been looking for, and, 
spurring his horse, he plunged down the rocky slope and 
into the arroyo. 

Following the dry bed, shaded here and there by mes- 
quite trees, it was not long before he emerged upon a trail 
leading through a thick, mesquite forest. This in turn 
yielded to a trail bordered by huge oaks and big cotton- 
woods. Ahead of him, in the grove he had seen from the 
ridge, v/as a small corral and water trough. On reaching 
it he unsaddled, and rolled himself a cigarette in the shade 
of an oak. He looked at the early sun and thought how 
fortunate the summer had been this year. There had been 
much rain in July and now grass was plentiful. The cattle 
were fattening up very nicely and should bring good prices 
in the fall. Much hay had been stored and, in case of a 
hard winter, which was unlikely on account of the grass, 
he would not be short on feed. His fences were mended 
and corrals repaired. Hence this deer hunting trip — he 
felt he owed himself a holiday after much hard work. It 
would only last a day or two, but it would make the dif- 

He rested several minutes longer and then having 
thrown away his cigarette he saddled up and was off on a 
trail leading up the mountain. It did not go straight up 
the face, but began out of sight of the corral and almost 
behind the mountain which formed a pocket with its neigh- 
bour. Soon the trail came into a climbing canyon and was 
bordered high on both sides by steep, rock precipices. At 
points one could see the trail ahead winding upward for 
several hundred yards. Looking down one could see 
nothing but more trail and gulch. Finally the precipices 
fell away into gentle, grassy slopes, thick with bear grass 
and the barred cactus. Then the trail halted abruptly. 
The rider found himself between two large boulders, some 
hundred yards apart. He was in the rock saddle he had 


seen from below. Now he could see all the country below 
him. Far down he picked out a green line of mesquite 
trees which was the arroyo, winding aimlessly through 
sparse rangeland. Not a thing moved. All was quiet. All 
was lonely. The range below stretched out forever it 
seemed. It went on and on and on until far away it stop- 
ped abruptly at the foothills of a large range of misty 
mountains, mysterious in the shadow of distance. 

The country on the other side of the saddle was a 
vivid contrast. Here, only a couple of hundred feet below, 
lay a valley, surrounded by high crags of strange rock 
formations. The valley was green with high, bush gram- 
ma grass and sprinkled with the purple flower of curly 
mesquite. The candlebush added to its richness and with 
tlie Joshua tree gave the place a wild beauty. A stream 
idled through the valley and bubbled on until it got lost 
in a maze of rocks at the end of the valley which became 
a canyon not far below. The valley was a miniature bowl 
on a mountain top, open to the sky and seemingly touched 
by the hand of God and made a paradise because of its 
nearness to the heavens. Even as the rider stood there on 
his horse, an eagle flew from his nest on the pommel rock 
and went screeching across the valley to a higher crag, 
complaining of the human presence that had invaded its 

For a long time the rider stood looking at this valley. 
Suddenly his keen eye was attracted by some movement 
under a mesquite tree beyond the stream where it entered 
the rocks. Or was it a movement? He thought he saw a 
deer under the tree but the distance prevented him from 
being certain. Perhaps it was only a rock. No, he saw 
it move again. He withdrew his rifle from its casing and 
dismounted, throwing the reins over his horse's head. It 
would be better to approach on foot since his rifle would 
not be accurate at such a distance. Down the rocky slope 
he went, through the thick grass. He moved slowly, making 
as little noise as possible on the shale of the slope. Soon 


he was across half the bowl and had entered tlie maze of 
rocks. Here the going was even slower, for if he as much 
as dislodged one rock, the deer would be up and away. He 
approached the stream and as he crossed, the heel of his 
boot caught in a crevice and he sent a rock tumbling down 
on others. He hardly dared to look up. When he did so, 
the deer was still there. Or was it a deer? Still he was 
not close enough to be certain and no movement followed 
the noise of the rock. With dogged persistence he phmged 
again into the long grass. 

Then it was that he heard a sound which sent chills 
up his spine and made him weak. Well he knew this noise. 
Looking about him he saw it, not three feet away from him 
and lying between two rocks. There, coiled and ready to 
strike, was a diamond-backed desert rattler — the largest he 
had ever seen. He didn't run and he didn't move. He 
stood absolutely still and watched the snake. He wondered 
if he had stumbled on its lair by mistake. If he remained 
still it shouldn't strike. But the snake was angry. Per- 
haps it would be better to run. But no, rattlers can strike 
quicker than any human can move. He stood still and 
frightened, looking at the beady eyes of the snake. Then 
he couldn't move. He felt hypnotized by those eyes. He 
felt absolutely powerless .... those eyes .... he was being 
attracted by those eyes .... now a burning j^ellow, now a 
thousand different colours — ahvays hungry, always wild. 

Suddenly the snake gave a perceptible jump and the 
man came out of his trance. The rattler lay dead, pierced 
through the head by an arrow. He looked up and a hun- 
dred feet away he saw a man standing, bow in hand, among 
the rocks of the opposite and steeper slope of the bowl from 
which he had come. He was tall and bronzed and his un- 
covered hair was jet black. He stood for a moment in full 
view and then retreated behind the crags and boulders. 
Loud calls would not bring him back and he did not appear 
again. The man looked again at the dead snake at his feet 
and then at the crudely built arrow that had brought its 


death. What did this mean? Who was this stranger? 
Obviously an Indian, but from where? Indians didn't live 
up here any more. That went out when the Apaches sur- 
rendered. Or did it? 

The man forgot his deer which, in truth, had been but 
a stone lying under the mesquite tree. He hastened back 
to his horse, hoping to catch a further glimpse of the Indian 
who had saved his life. He reached his grazing horse and 

From the saddle-rock he looked out over the valley 
and saw nothing but the beauty he had seen before. Nothing 
moved and all was quiet and peaceful. Then from the 
rangeland side of the saddle-rock crept a thunderhead, fol- 
lowed by others. These made him realize that he was an 
intruder in the silent valley, a silence broken only by the 
bubbling of the brook and the eagle's screech.

TTae storm had reached its height, and we were lost. 

I braved the deck. The heavy fog had cleared 

Just for a moment, and at last the sea 

So long unseen, was now revealed and real. 

The penetrating blasts the foghorn moaned. 

Unnerving, only emphasizing more 

The loneliness and blindness of our plight, 

Had ceased. And I beheld the weirdest scene 

That I had yet encountered; it was like 

A dreadful nightmare, terrifying dream. 

The tempest raged relentlessly, and froze 

The very blood within my veins. The wind 

Blew fiercely, took my breath away, and sent 

The stinging spray across the deck to strike 

Like little beads of lead that burnt my flesh. 

And giant, tow'ring hills of angry waves. 

Like great, inhuman monsters from the deep. 


All-evil, merciless and cruel, heaved up. 

And in their rage and fury, raised and hurled 

And dashed our little ship, a helpless soul, 

Resigned and lost, until it shook and creaked 

And took such leaps and bounds, that I was sure 

'Twould break in two and sink beneath the waves. 

And vast, ethereal mists rose from the sea. 

Like ghosts of some unknown, immortal world; 

Around, around they whirled and swirled, until 

They reached the gloomy, dark and frowning roof 

Of thick, black clouds that menacingly hung 

Above, like some awaiting god, about 

To plunge upon us, choking us to death. 

Uncanny, fright'ning, it then seenfied as if 

The world at last had come to end, and this 

Was Hell. I shivered, grasped the railing then 

More firm, as if it was the last remains 

Of Life, a realistic world, quite sane 

And human, not like this. Then suddenly 

The fog returned and all was lost from view. 

And I was left there, standing cold and wet 

And trembling, paralyzed with awe and fear. 

Till once again the foghorn blew, and woke 

Me from my trance. And then I went inside 

To v/elcome earthly sights, and hear men speak, 

And touch and fondly finger man made things. 

And try then to forget that awful scene, 

In fear that soon it should obsess my mind, II 

For t'was a sight not meant for sane mankind. 1

The gigantic, snorting hulk of steel slid to a screech- 
ing stop. From the long line of coaches which followed 
emerged a stream of luggage which clattered haphazardly 
onto the cement walk. Then appeared porters with white 


topcoats, dark pants and caps, in one hand a yellow stool 
which they placed strategically below the door through 
which came a stream of people, a torrent of men and wo- 
men, a walking, running, shouting, laughing, talking, grumb- 
ling crowd who surged down the platform, beyond the 
engine which showered the foremost with steam. A shrill 
whistle, heralding the coming of an electric pick-up, filled 
to capacity with baggage, momentarily stopped the press- 
ing throng, but in a few seconds they were again on the 
move towards the gates of the main station where cries of 
welcome could already be heard. Here friends greeted 
friends, relations shook hands and loved-ones embraced 
amid the rumbling and puffing of freight trains, the bang- 
ing of baggage, the beat of pick-axes as rail way men strove 
to renew the ties on track 3 before the 8.20 was due, the 
monotonous monotone of the intercommunication loud- 
speaker and the mixed voices of an assembled multitude. 
Here business-men, financial tycoons, eccentric ladies, 
chauffeurs, bridegrooms, hoboes, farmers, cooks, country 
lads, people of different colour, creed and religion met. 
Here the country doctor could be seen as he waited to re- 
turn to his home town after a doctor's convention, here 
was the lawyer waiting to go on his vacation, here was the 
minister ready to give moral assistance to the needy travel- 
ler, here was the centre of humanity, the ever-pounding 
heart of life. 

The big clock boomed seven times; the station rush 
hour had begun. The sun, broken into strips by the girders 
in the roofs, formed a quilted pattern on the floor, and 
illuminated the highly decorated walls. 

In one comer of the spacious waiting-room slouched a 
hobo. His cap was pulled down over one eye, and his coat 
was lying at his feet. His pants hung, by a piece of rope, 
well below his waistline, and his grizzled chin showed him 
to be badly in need of a shave. Suddenly he looked up and 
his wandering gaze finally settled on the lunch counter. 
There on a stool sat the lone customer, a tourist. His 


loud, checkered suit, his matching bow tie and hankie, his 
shined shoes and sleeked hair and his rimless glasses gave 
him a dapper appearance. EUs wide mouth had stuck in it 
a cigar, and between drags he sipped coffee over the morn- 
ing newspaper. Searchingly his hand felt for a piece of 
toast on a plate before him and after retrieving its quarry, 
lifted it past a weak jaw to expectant lips. Below the stool 
on which he sat was a large well-plastered suitcase, covered 
with stickers of nearly every hotel from Maine to Florida. 

In a little while he got up and sauntered out into the 
waiting room. A loudspeaker in the distance wa.s giving 
the times at which the next trains were due. Slowly he 
walked over to one of the large gates through which could 
be seen the platform. "Train for all points west of Chicago 
leaving on track 10" came a voice over the intercommunica- 
tion loudspeaker. 

The tourist turned around and spying a red cap called 
in a harsh voice "Hey you". 

The man looked up, "Yassah boss, what can I do foah 
you?" he replied in a friendly tone. 

"Get my bag", was the reply. "It's over in the lunch 

"Yessuh, on what train is you goin' on?" 

"The 8.20 due in fifteen minutes on track 5, car 187". 
The red cap ambled off and entered the lunch counter only 
to return empty-handed. "It ain't there, boss", he ex- 

The tourist's jaw dropped. "It must be," said he 
angrily. "Why, I left it there myself. Now look again 

or " Just then he caught sight of a vanishing figure 

and shouted, "Oh ! ! ! There ! ! ". 

The bum had soon perceived his opportunity. Saunter- 
ing into the lunch counter, when the sole occupant was the 
proprietor, he had demanded a cup of coffee, and as soon 
as the man's back was turned, was away with his prize. 
Off across the station he ran and through the wide gates 
onto the platform where the 8.20 would soon arrive. The 


arms of the station clock were making a straight angle and 
the loudspeaker announced the 8.20 to be due in ten 
minutes. Already the line-up to get aboard had begun. In 
a few minutes the smoke from its mighty furnace gently 
rose into view. Soon the whistle could be heard and the 
station-master, posted in the switch-tower, saw it coming 
around the bend. Over on track 5, work had ceased and 
the men were waiting, pick-axes in hand, until it had pass- 
ed, when from the shadows of a loading dock a hundred 
yards away came two running figures, the first carrying 
a suit-case and the second wearing a loud-checkered suit, in 
hot pursuit of the former. 

The first figure had a good start and was rapidly in- 
creasing his lead, while the second could be heard crying, 
"Stop, thief!". Suddenly the first veered towards the 
railwaymen, and seeing the 8.20 coming down the track, 
ran across its course. The latter cut on an angle and ran 
towards his quarry, heedless of the oncoming monster. 

The 8.20 roared by. With screaming suddenness, a 
dark figure leaped out of the way, carrying in one hand a 
motley-coloured bag, and landed at the bottom of a trestle. 
A second or two later the engine flashed by and the cars 
followed in staccato succession. 

The gigantic, snorting hulk of steel slid to a screech- 
ing stop. On one wheel was the tattered remnant of a 
piece of checkered cloth.

The old bam was now to be razed. For one hundred 
and fifty years it had predominated the tiny village, 
situated as it was on a nearby hill. Its venerable grey 
walls, quiet and unassuming, had somehow seemed to 
represent all that was safe and peaceful in the worried 
world. The friendly habitants of the small Quebec village 
had now, for six generations, lived, worked and died with- 



in sight of it. The oldest man in the village was just able 
to remember the story of how his grandfather had built it. 
Originally it had been intended as a form of fort against 
the attacks of the redskin. The strong sides bore many a 
scratch and groove showing where the arrows of the Iro- 
quois had driven in. The old building, if gifted with the 
power of speech, would have many dramatic stories to 
narrate. It could tell of the frightened people cowering 
inside and of the war whoops of the savage Indians. Again 
it would tell a story of peace — the green fields, yielding 
their harvest and the white winter blanket covering the 
land and streets of the village. After all this, the bam 
was now to be razed. Where it now stood, there would be 
nothing — nothing but a heaviness in the hearts of the vil-

I first heard the story of Grandpa's escapade from the 
lips of Grandma, several years after it happened. Grandpa 
punctuated her tale with snorts and explosive "Bahs!" and 
she continually told him, "Do be still, dear". However, 
from the twinkle in his eye, I gathered that he enjoyed it 
as much as she did. 

When the first cars came out Grandpa was determined 
to buy one, or so he said, and with Grandma's rather fear- 
ful assent he put in his order. The car was finally de- 
livered and put into the garage which had been built ex- 
pressly for this purpose. For several days he did nothing 
but look at it. Indeed he was rather afraid of the car. and 
was quite surprised at Grandma's consenting to the pur- 
chase, for he had not expected her to give in. 

One Sunday afternoon, when Grandma was out call- 
ing ,he plucked up enough courage to get into his car. He 
hadn't the slightest notion of how to drive it and as the 
man who delivered it offered no advice. Grandpa disdained 


to ask it. The gearshift on this type of car was rather 
unusual for the times. It was a bar which came up from 
the floor and had three positions. Reverse was the farthest 
away from the driver, forward the position nearest him 
and neutral in between. 

Grandpa was completely ignorant of all these facts, 
but he no doubt felt that he could solve any problem of 
manipulation when the time came. Somehov/ he got the 
motor started and when he found he could control its speed 
by means of two levers on the steering-wheel he was very 
pleased. With the motor roaring loudly, he pulled back 
the gear shift as hard as he could and the car, of course, 
went through the back of the garage. Disconcerting as 
this v/as. Grandpa did not lose his presence of mind but 
immediately pulled the gearshift in the opposite direction. 
His charge rocketed backwards, through the garage and 
out of the hedge-lined driveway. Due to his impatient 
handling of the wheel, the car went through the hedge 
several times, much to his horror, for that hedge was 
Grandma's pride and joy. 

Their home was situated at the top of a hill which 
sloped steeply down into the business section of the small 
town. So great was Grandpa's dismay at the havoc he 
had wrought in the hedge that he hurtled down the hill, 
still going backwards. His shouts of warning were quite 
unnecessary, for those few people who were in the streets 
got out of the way as quickly as possible. 

It was not to be that Grandpa should get through the 
town without doing any damage. Before his mad career 
ended against a substantial maple tree, he managed to take 
the wheel off a carriage, and to splash the mayor's wife 
from head to toe with mud. Being too fat to hurry, she 
could not escape this fate. 

The next day saw Grandpa visiting various people to 
make amends. What was left of the car was sold, for in 
Grandpa's mind it was a bad horse which had not obeyed 
him, and must be punished by leaving him forever.

Depressing draughts of air swept round 
The buildings; rain had been denied 
For days; the land was baked, the crops 
Were parched ... a miracle was all 

Could save them, rain at any rate, 

Would be most welcome. Walking 'twixt 
The rows, once wheat, depression swept 
The mind as well; the farmers talked 
As though they were already lost. 
They had no hope of rain; no clouds 
Were seen within the blue: the leaves 
On trees hung brown and crisp: complete 
Destruction reigned. 

And then from out 
The west a fleecy cloud, and then 
Another stole across the sky. 
Became at last a crowd, a throng 
Of white and fluffy nothingness. 
A breeze, gentle one and weak. 
Sprang up and walked over the land 
The clouds that brought the needed rain. 

For days the rain beat down upon 

The ground beneath: the heaven seemed 

To open up, disgorging all 

The moisture stored within its breast. 

The water ran in rivulets 

Among the plants; it plunged into 

The soil, beginning right away 

Its work of righting what the drought 

Had done. The farmers rushed outside 

And let the rain descend upon 

Their heads: the rain, the glorious rain. 

Had come again: once more the wheat 

Would rise, first green, then yellow brown, 


To swing most gracefully beside 

The com and grass, revivified 

To nourish once again the men 
Who toiled unceasingly upon 
The land. 

Although a drought had been, 
The land began to bear the fruits 
That many men had laboured long 
To see brought forth. But be forwarned: 
The "rain" will never right a wrong 
Unless due energy is spent, 
Preparing for the "har-vest" of 
The seeds that have been sown. 

— J. R. Ligertwood ('43-'45). 


Professor Jean Jacques Becasse quietly opened the 
door to his "work-room". He glanced about at the almost 
terrif5dng row of sparkling glass instruments before him. 
Then he clamped down on his emotions with an iron hand 
and all feeling of excitement left him. 

"Dulac", he called loudly. His assistant sprang up to 
meet him. Without a word he walked over to the long 
table where, tidily kept, there stood rows of phials filled 
with different coloured liquids. In the big book which lay 
before him he marked: "8th June, 1932." Then barking 
out to his assistant in curt monosyllables for what he want- 
ed, he settled down to work. Dulac gave him everything 
he asked for in perfect order and timing. He was used to 
such treatment; Monsieur le Professeur never spoke to 
him in any other way. 

"Phial ", rapped the professor; Dulac swiftly inserted 
it into his master's hgind. But he did not grasp it in his 
usual quick manner, instead he let it drop; it rolled off the 
table and broke on the floor. He cursed himself inwardly 
as a clumsy ox and told himself that he was becoming jit- 


tery near these, the final days of his experiment. Why, 
he was as bad as on his first day in the university when, 
like a fool, he had dropped a test tube full of acid! And 
to top all, in his confusion, he had just stood there and 
blushed! Chemistrs' had been a bore to him then; he had 
never dreamed that it was to become his whole life. He 
had been wild and reckless in his boyhood. He remem- 
bered how he had charged over the desert on those meteor 
horseback rides which had marked the zenith of the wild 
joy of his youth, and how he had hunted panthers in the 
Atlas Mountains. He remembered the thrills of the wild 
chase and the final triumphant kill. 

But he was getting sentimental. Sentimentality was 
one of the greatest enemies of success. He worked on and 
on into the night without rest. He had become like a 
machine. Suddenly an owl's hoot whistled through the 
drowsy silence. He started, fully awake. He felt his heart 
pounding in his breast as though he had been frightened. 
He realized that he had. An owl's hoot always had a cer- 
tain significance for him ever since the night when it had 
echoed and re-echoed in his beautiful garden at home .... 
the night when his father's detachment had been reported 
surrounded by the huge Arab horde of the rebel Moham- 
med-ben- Aoude. the lion of Morocco; and he and his brave 
Spahis were mourned as dead. He could still picture the 
gaunt figure of his wounded father as he returned over the 
still burning sands two night later. 

He pushed these thoughts away from him abruptly. 
He was losing his grip on himself. He must concentrate. 
But the vision of his father kept creeping back into his 
mind to haunt him. His noble god-like father. General 
Becasse, one-time Commander-in-chief of all the French 
troops in Morocco. How he had admired him as a boy! And 
how badly he had treated him as a youth of seventeen, 
when he had run away from home, because of a disagree- 
ment between them in which he had been entirely in the 
v/rong, and how he had thus bereft his father of his only 


child. Yes, and killed him too. for he had died shortly 
after of a heart attack, brought on by his loss. 

He had become so engrossed in his thoughts that he 
had been working mechanically and had hardly noticed how 
well his experiment was proceeding until it was practically 
completed. For a minute he hardly realized what this 
meant. Then the excited look in Dulac's eyes woke him up 
to the fact that his work was at last over. His heart 
pounded faster. Here was the final test. He would see 
now whether his theory, which he had been working on for 
years, was correct. The blood pounded in his temples. If 
he was right, these two liquids which he held in his hands, 
when mixed, should bubble over and turn a dark brown, li 
not they would turn green, a deep green. It was ironical, 
he thought, that green should be his favourite colour. Sud- 
denly, on an impulsive move he mixed the tv/o together. 
The mixture wavered in the balance for a few moments 
then it slowly billowed out into a beautiful emerald green. 

The professor stood there a few seconds without 
reaUzing what had happened. Then "defeat" swept into 
his mind like the angry waves into a torpedoed liner. Ten 
years of hard work, over ten millions of hard cash — wasted, 
absolutely wasted. He left the room as in a dream, walk- 
ed across the hall, out onto the terrace, into the bright 
moonlight. The whole universe opened up before him, 
carried in on the sound of the chirping crickets. He was 
struck breathless by the hugeness of the world. Then sud- 
denly he stretched his arms out wide and took in a deep 
breath. He felt happy for the first time in twenty years. 
He turned abruptly and walked towards the house with a 
firmness which surprised him. There in the doorway stood 
his butler. 

"Professeur Becasse", he said, "I " 

"Professeur Becasse, bah!", came the laughing answer, 
"Private Jean Jacques Becasse, Blue Hussars Regiment! 
Lapierre, get me a seat on the next plane for Morocco!"

How the stars throb and glitter as they wheel 

In heavenly procession; small tongues of flame and hght. 

Round the blue vault obdurate as steel, 

The simple sparks that light the endless night. 

And at his window stands a doomed man. 

Each minute seems a year before the day; 

He sits, and waits, as only humans can, 

The inevitable moment, o'er which he holds no sway. 

"If only time would halt, at the few last waning hours, 
And sweet memories could forever flood my brain, 
If only I could move the Almighty powers 
To let me live my life but once again " 

He staggers, and with hot tears his eyes are filled, 
He sits, then kneels, and humbly starts to pray; 
The time must come, for fate has had it willed. 
And so he prays, and grimly meets his last sad day.

Editor's Note : The author spent a summer in Halifax, 
Nova Scotia, and worked on several ships sailing out of 
that port. The story is taken from the experiences of two 
of the ships he was on as told him by crew-members. One 
ship, a small fishing trawler, struggled into port tvith about 
two feet of ice on her decks last winter. This was the ship 
chosen for the story. The other was a small coastal freighter 
which ran into a shoal off Halifax in a snow storm. 

"I think I hear a bell, Skipper", came the warning of 
the lookout. The three men on the bridge strained their 
ears as the little ship lurched into the driving snow storm. 
Nothing could be heard but the pounding engines and 


crashing waves as the ship nosed under, followed by the 
quieter splattering of the windblown spray. 

"Guess I didn't after all". 

"That bell-buoy should be around here somewhere", re- 
marked the skipper. 

The "Mary Priscilla" had turned her bows for home 
about four- o'clock the afternoon before in the thick of a 
cold winter fog. The catch of fish had been very poor, and 
the nearly empty ship was carrying a very disheartened 
crew to Halifax. A few hours later on the homeward jour- 
ney, however, the crew had more than a poor catch to 
worry about; the fog changed to a wind-driven snow, and 
the seas became whipped into mountains of water. The 
little boat bucked and twisted like a wild thing. She set 
straight mto the south-west gale for home. Her plunging 
and twisting prevented all sleep, and set the cook's dishes 

During the night they were struck by an even worse 
turn of the weather. The temperature dropped to zero 
causing the spray and snow to freeze onto the ship. It soon 
became dangerous to venture out on the deck for fear of 

By morning, although the wind had dropped a bit, the 
waves and spray were still lashing over the ship. The 
excess weight of the ice on the upper sections was having 
its effect on the nearly empty vessel. Her increasing roll 
was a little slower than before. 

As the morning wore on, high winds still lashed the 
waves, and the situation had a marked effect on some of 
the crew. At noon the "tough boy" of the ship stood his 
turn on watch. 

"Watch out!" he yelled in feverish excitement as the 
topheavy ship lingered a little longer than usual at the end 
of a roll. The wheel which he had released spun wildly 
around and the ship righted herself and suddenly jerked to 
the other side. 


"Here, here!" came the captain's reproach. "You'd 
better let Jack take the wheel. You keep a sharp look-out 
for any buoys and keep your ears open. We should be out- 
side Halifax in about four hours". 

The big fellow moved into position by the narrow slit 
of the open window, the rest being covered by about six 
inches of ice. A few minutes passed in silence. The skip- 
per braced himself in a corner of the wheelhouse and lis- 
tened intently. 

"Listen! I hear another boat", came the nervous voice 
of the look-out. After a short period of alert, he mur- 
mured half apologetically and half defensively, "I was sure 
I heard a bloody fog-horn." 

There was no sound but the sea unsteadily tossing the 
ice-laden boat. 

"Hey skipper, we better get the lifeboats ready. This 
thing might roll over". 

"Don't worry. We'll be all right", returned the captain 

"I was just makin' a suggestion." 

A minute passed. 

"Listen! There's a horn!" 


"I coulda sworn I heard one." 

Another half hour passed in nervous remarks and 
anxious fidgeting. Finally the captain told him that he 
had better go below because he looked a little seasick. There 
was no hesitation. He went out the door as fast as he could. 
A few minutes later the skipper saw him inching his way 
forward on the deck, hanging onto the frozen nets for dear 

For the next few hours the silence of the sea was 
broken only by the ship's foghorn. The tense atmosphere 
changed into a dull monotony of snow and waves. 

At four o'clock the watch changed. They brought up 
some heavy cookies for the captain. The watchfulness be- 


came a little keener then since the ship was nearin^ the 
entrance to Halifax harbour. 

It was very fortunate that she was approaching port, 
for the decks were covered by more than twenty inches of 
ice. and the ship was in a very dangerous condition. All 
the fishing nets were frozen into grotesque shapes and 
even the hand rails were much too thick to grip with one 
hand. The ship teetered and rolled much more unsteadily 
now. Soon, however, through the white envelope of driv- 
ing snow, came the reassuring distant boom of the Devil's 
Island lighthouses off the starboard beam. 

Judging his position from the direction of the Devil's 
Island horns, the captain altered course slightly to head 
for the channel buoy. Soon they heard the Murray's Spit 
lighthouse signal. It was strange that it came so much 
from starboard, but the captain altered the course a bit to 
swing the bow into the channel. 

Suddenly the skipper noticed the noise of waves break- 
ing in shallow water; too late. Her bow was lifted up and 
set down on the shoal by the next wave. The outline of a 
lighthouse loomed through a rift in the snowstorm off the 
port bow. The skipper realized why he had run aground; 
the snow and wind had played with the sound and he had 
steered right onto Murray's Spit. He quickly signalled full 
speed astern. 

The topheavy ship heeled over steeply and the waves 
buffeted her furiously but she did not budge. She would 
soon be knocked to pieces in those conditions. 

The watch below clambered aft over the slippery decks 
and began working frantically at the ice-bound lifeboats. 

Opening the wheelhouse door, the captain kept one 
eye on the work at the lifeboats, and the other on the bat- 
tering waves. He could feel the engines straining hard 
astern, but the ship held fast. 

Suddenly the engineer scrambled up the ladder and 
appeared before the skipper. 


"Please, Skipper," he pleaded, "Won't you let me stop 
the engine? It will burn out the cylinders this way." 

"Don't be silly, man! If she doesn't clear, it doesn't 
matter two hoots in Hades if the engine is all shot, 'cause 
it'll be at the bottom; if it does pull her off, we'll be glad 
enough to get off with the ship and our skins." He glanced 
at the cold sea in which no man could last a minute. "G^et 
back below and get every last bit of power out of her". 

"But, Skipper, it will ruin my engine". 

The air was rent by a terrific oath. "Keep it going", 
bellowed the skipper when he at last became articulate. 

Meanwhile the mate and his men were working at the 
lifeboats. They had succeeded in chopping off the tar- 
paulin covers with their load of ice. The tackles were 
made useless by the ice, so they were hacking them away 
and going to use another rope without blocks. The davits, 
too, were hopelessly stuck with ice. The work was ham- 
pered by the pounding waves which sent the men slipping 
all over the boat deck. Finally they got one of the boats 
loose and began to lower it over the side. When it was 
halfway down a big wave rolled the ship over to the side 
on which the lifeboat hung. 

"Let 'er go", cried the mate and captain simultaneous- 
ly, in order to prevent the boat from being smashed against 
the ship's side on the return roll of the ship. Down it went 
and hit the waves on its side, half filling with water. 

In a moment another wave struck, lifting the lifeboat 
and carrying it away. At the same time the ship shud- 
dered, her bow lifted, then started crashing down with a 
bit of a twist to port. The crew held their breath, waiting 
for the bow to smash on the shoal ; the crash did not come. 
The ship slipped astern, pulled by the still-churning pro- 
peller, and rolled very heavily to port. For a moment she 
hesitated as though trying to decide whether to keep on 
rolling or to right herself. Very slowly she swung back 
to an upright position. The men gave a gasp of relief. 

Lost: One lifeboat.

Under the wide and starry sky 
Dig the grave and let me die - - 
Glad did I live, and gladly die 
And I lay me down with a will. 

This is probably the most famous epitaph in Einglish 
Literature, and although it is certainly a wonderfully ex- 
pressive verse, it is also an unusual one, for the majority 
of epitaphs are not so outspoken. Usually they are terse 
notes which, coldly engraved in hard stone, teU the sad 
stories of departed lives with no more v/armth than a dic- 
tionary definition. What ciTished hopes lie forgotten be- 
neath hard tombstones — what disappointments, fears, and 
bitter, heart-searing griefs are silenced forever in the time 
enduring ground! All that remains for sorrov/ing friends 
are a few simple lines impersonally cut into a slab of stone. 

"In memory of James Carlyle, 1898-1919". Thus may 
read almost any stone to the passing glance of an inquisi- 
tive graveyard trespasser. But how very little he sees! As 
his parents had not been able to afford a lavish funeral, 
these simple words were all that marked the little grave, 
these few carved letters, left to resist the sun and driving 
rain, storm and infinite time. But what the stone left un- 
said was the utter tragedy of the boy's death. 

By 1915 most of Jimmy's older friends had joined the 
forces, until the temptation had been too strong and he too 
— although only seventeen — enlisted, and as volunteers 
were short, he went overseas the next year. After two 
years of rapidly successive promotions he distinguished 
himself and returned home heaped with glory and praise. 
He reached an important position in a newly established and 
thriving business, and life was beautiful. Here was a suc- 
cess story; it seemed too perfect, too much like a story 
book. Then just before his twenty-first birthday, when 
life was all promise, when the past was successful and the 
future everything — calamity. 


The new aeroplanes were not the machines they are 
to-day, but Jimmy had the unquenched spirit of adventure, 
so when a friend invited him up in his new flying won- 

Yes, the humble epitaph left a lot unsaid; it failed to 
tell of the stunning grief of his parents, of the girl whom 
he loved, and of all those who held him dear. Nor could 
it ever tell of the sudden collapse of all the magnificent 

castles in the sky his father's hopes of a brilliant 

career; the inner pride of his mother which had daily in- 
creased as she saw her son attaining manhood and ful- 
filling her dreams. The carefully laid plans of both parents 
as they would sit talking far into the night, into the last 
feebly flickering log in the fireplace left each to their own 
thoughts and darkness. 

For time, truly the father of all, always takes back 
what he gives, and we are but play things in his hands; 
and the generations after us will perhaps look at our simple 
epitaphs and wonder .... 

This is the verse ye grave for me: 
"Here he lies where he longed to be; 
Home is the sailor, home from the sea, 
And the himter home from the hill".

Playing soccer in the fall 

No one knows what moves the ball! 

Some phenomenon occurs. 

"Ground uneven", one avers. 

Ball arrested in its flight, 

Spinning off to left or right. 

In the squash court down below, 

Racquet darting to and fro! 

But I know why this is so; 


Hockey puck, to our applause, 
Scores with no apparent cause! 
Goal for other team recorded. 
Scorer of it fiercely boarded. 
Action called by referee. 
Bump appears on latter's knee! 
Man about to shoot the puck 
Swings at it, and sees it duck! 
But I know this isn't luck: 

In the summer, playing cricket, 
Ball stops dead in front of wicket! 



Wicket-keeper baffled that 
There's no one holdmg up the bat! 
Little catch stops in mid-air. 
Funny thing: there's no one there! 
Batsman, out to hit an "eight,"

At Port Hope, January 22: Lost 5-4 

In their first game of the year, Bigside, playing in an 
OJi.A. Junior B League, were defeated 5-4 by Pickering 
College. The game was very closely contested throughout 
and went into overtime, and, due to the remarkably good 
condition of the ice, was quite fast. Trinity had a slight 
edge in play for most of the game but were unable to over- 
come the spectacular goaltending of Sifton in Pickering's 

In the opening minutes oi the game T.C.S. carried the 
play and kept Pickering well bottled up in their own end. 
At the four and a half minute mark Hoover was given a 
penalty for interference giving the School a one man ad- 
vantage, but Pickering successfully held us. Trinity took 
a 1-0 lead when Taylor scored on a pass from McDonough 
at 10.50. Pickering came right back at the thirteen minute 
mark, however, with a Robertson from Rogers combina- 
tion that tied the score up. At 14.45 Payne scored un- 
assisted, to give us the lead once more while Pickering 
were two men short. At 17.55 Wilson from O'Neill scored 
for Pickering to tie the game up. With fifteen seconds of 
play left in the first period Payne, taking the puck from 
Campbell, cashed in his second goal to give the School a 
3-2 lead. 


Pickering opened the second period with another Wil- 
son from O'Neill goal that tied the score at 1.15. Still carry- 
ing the offensive they took a 4-3 lead when Robertson 
scored on a pass from Avery while Trinity was short- 
handed. T.C.S. then settled down and kept Pickering hard 
pressed for the remainder of the period. Sifton in the 
Pickering nets, however, held us scoreless. In the last 
minutes of the period we again had a two man advantage 
but were unable to overcome the Pickering defense. 

In the third period the School again started badly but 
nevertheless kept Pickering scoreless. After some five 
minutes of play the School perked up and went all out in 
an effort to overtake Pickering. At the 17.25 mark just 
after a brilliant save by Fennell in the T.C.S. nets, Lawson 
raced down the ice and fired the puck past Sifton to tie the 
score up. With only a couple of minutes to go Fennell 
again made a remarkable stop on a break-away by Picker- 
ing. At the end of regulation time the score remained four 

At the 5.30 mark of the ten minute overtime Rogers 
fed the puck to Addison who drove it past Fennell to give 
Pickering a 5-4 edge. In spite of the efforts of the first 
team in the last five minutes, the game ended ina 5-4 win 
for Pickering. 

Sifton was outstanding in the Pickering nets and 
Rogers played well on defence. Taylor, Hyde and Wood 
were best for the School.

At Oshawa, January 25: Lost 7-5 

In an exhibition game at the Oshawa Arena the School 
was defeated by the Alpha Delts 7-5 in a wide open game 


free from penalties. The Alpha Delts, a heavier and more 
experienced team, showed several speedy scoring burets but 
the hard fighting T.C.S. team managed to hold the leaders 
to only a two goal margin. 

Waylett of the Alpha Delts scored the first goal of the 
game on a pass from Danniels after several minutes of close 
checking, and then the game opened up when T.C.S. got 
two goals within a minute; the first one scored by Payne 
assisted by Lawson. and the second by McDonough with 
Taylor and Hyde assisting. The School continued to pum- 
mel Shortly but were unable to score. Near the end of the 
period Medland of the Alpha Delts made a breakaway and 
scored leaving the score 2-2. The second period began 
with a wild flurry of shots from the Alpha Delts which 
gave them four goals within the first seven minutes of play. 
Ecclestone set up Ratcliffe for the first of these, which 
was followed by an unassisted goal by Hart. Pringle tal- 
lied next on a pass from Gibson. T.C.S. tried to keep the 
puck out of their end but Danniels shot the puck into the 
net on a pass from Ratcliffe. The School then began to 
dominate the play but missed one or two opportunities and 
the score remained 6-2 at the close of the second period. 
In the final period the fraternity began to tire and so were 
outscored 3-1. Wells led the first attack in the opening 
of the period to score assisted by Taylor and McDonough. 
The Alpha Delts returned with a goal by Waylett assisted 
by Gibson. Halfway through the period Payne scored his 
second goal for T.C.S. on a pass from Lawson. The score 
remained 7-4 until the dying moments of the game when 
McDonough shot the puck past Shortly, Taylor assisting. 

Ecclestone, Ratcliffe and Waylett shone for the Alpha 
Delts while Lawson and Taylor played best for the School. 
Fennell and Shortly were both very good in the nets.

At Port Hope, February 1 : Won 10-5 

Bemie Hodgett's Juvenile Champs were soundly 
trounced by the Junior O.H.A. entry of this year. The 
Champs started fast but Wells opened the scoring for T.C.S. 
Campbell scored a brace of goals to give the School a 3-0 
lead at the end of the period. On Campbell's second goal 
Burr EYench generally assisted by deflecting the puck by 
the bewildered Dawson. T.C.S. had outskated and outplay- 
ed their opponents by a wide margin. 

In the second period Howard scored on one of his 
rushes weaving through the entire team. However, Wells 
scored again to keep the School in the lead. Gilbert scored 
on Fennell to keep alive the champs hopes. Wells, Gilbert 
and Taylor each added another goal to their team's total. 
Thus both teams had scored three times in the second 
period to make the score 6-3 for the School. In the second 
period the champs began to make their passing plays click 
having the better part of the play. 

In the early part of the third period the Juveniles 
turned loose their power plays and scored two quick goals. 
The School fought back with goals by McDonough and 
Wells. Play see-sawed back and forth between the two 
ends. Before the final bell had rung Lawson had popped 
in two quick goals to give the School a 10-5 win over the 
vaunted champs. For the School Wells was the best, being 
well supported by Lawson and Campbell. Howard and 
Huycke were standouts on the defence for the Old Boys 
with Gilbert leading the attack. 

The '45 Juveniles — Dawson, E. Huycke, Howard, F. Huycke, 
Pearson, Dobell, Sinclair, McMurrich, Gilbert, Robarts, Higgln-

SCHOOL vs. U.T.S. 
At Varsity, January 29: Lost 4-2 

In their second league game the first hockey team 
again found themselves trailing at the end of a very close 
game. Although the final score was 4-2 for U.T.S. , the 
School had the lead with ten minutes to play. 

The School got the first tally of the game when Wood 
shot from the blue line and put the puck in the lower 
comer of the net. U.T.S. then forced the play into T.C.S. 
territory and Fennell kept the puck out until Sinclair scored 
on a pass from Bark about half-way through the period 
making the score 1-1. The U.T.S. team was short one man 
at the time of the goal as Vernon got a holding penality just 
before. The second period began with the play inside the 
U.T.S. blue line but Wood of T.C.S. got a penalty for trip- 
ping and U.T.S. almost scored. In the dying moments of 
the period Bark got av/ay alone but failed to score as Fen- 
nell made a sensational save. There was no scoring this 
period. Early in the third period T.C.S. took the lead 
when Payne scored, assisted by Campbell. McClelland of 
U.T.S. then got a penalty and again U.T.S. scored while a 
man short as Avery made a wonderful rush, beating Fen- 
nell from close-in. At this point both teams rushed more 
and it was a very fast game from here in. The score was 
2-2 with five minutes of play when Doll scored unassisted. 
This was followed shortly by another unassisted goal by 
Armstrong giving U.T.S. a 4-2 margin at the end of the 

Bark, Lang and Avery were outstanding for U.T.S. 
while Hyde and Fennell played well for the School. 

T.C.S. — Taylor, Fennell, Hyde, Wood, McDonough, Wells, Payne, 
Campbell, Lawson, EJnsinck, Newcomb, FuUerton, Bruce, Goodbody.

Juvenile Hockey 

At Port Hope, January 23: Lost 10-4 

Although considerably out-played by a heavier and 
faster team the School put up a hard fight and played well 
throughout. The ice was fast and this enabled the Bow- 
manville forwards to take full advantage of their speed. 

After four minutes of fast play in the first period 
Dadson scored for Bowmanville on a long shot from the 
blue line. A series of penalties to both teams kept down 
the scoring until late in the period when three goals were 
scored by Bowmanville after scrambles, the T.C.S. defence 
being slow at clearing the rebounds. The second period 
opened with a dazzling goal by Black on a perfect play set 
up by Thompson but thirty seconds later Sturrock re- 
taliated for Bowmanville. For the rest of the period Tri- 
nity fought hard and succeeded in scoring two more goals. 
The first was on a shot by MacPherson from close in and 
the second on a rather lucky shot by McKinnon which re- 
bounded off the screen, hit the back of the goalie's pads, 
and bounced into the net. 

In the early part of the third period play slowed up a 
little and then Bowmanville took to the attack and scored 
four rapid goals, all on scrambles. T.C.S. fought hard and 
Thompson scored on a pass from Black. On a break-away 
forty seconds later Hooper completed the scoring by beat- 
ing Goodbody in the T.C.S. nets. 

The line of Sturrock, Hooper and Cowle accounted for 
seven of the Bowmanville goals and proved themselves to 
be the stars of the game. For the School, Black and 
Thompson combined well and Deverall played a strong de- 
fensive game breaking up numerous dangerous Bowman- 
ville rushes.

Midget and Littleside Hockey 

Under the able direction of Mr. Hass a Midget team 
has been formed and entered in an O.M.H.A. league. Mof- 
fitt was elected Captain and Rogers ii Vice-Captain. In 
their first game, against Bovvmanville, after a hard fight 
the School lost 6-8. Bowmanville obtained a three goal 
lead early in the game and however hard the School at- 
tacked they seemed unable to overcome the advantage. In 
an exhibition game with U.C.C. the team did considerably 
better and the game ended in a 3-3 tie with the School 
having a definite superiority for the better part of the 
game. The team has played well as a group and led by 
Moffitt and Rogers have done exceedingly well. 

The Littleside team coached by Mr. Dale has played 
only one game to date, against Upper Canada, which was 
lost 4-1. McKinnon ii has been elected Captain and Panet, 
vice-captain. The team with more practice should do well 
in future games. 

Midgets — Luke, Wilson, Wright ii, McGill, Wood ii, Scowen, Kil- 
born, Moffitt, Bronfman, Potter, Rogers ii, Kingman, Bermingham, 
Maier, Thompson v. 

Littleside — McKinnon ii, Panet, Woods ii. Manning, Barrow, 
Harris, VanStraubenzee, Peters, Palmer, Durnford, Bate, CroU, 
Grout, Heard. Gilmour, McDowell ii, Gilley (manager). 




At T.C.S., January 15: Won 26-28 

The first game of the season for Bigside was an ex- 
hibition game against the Rascals at T.C.S. The play 
throughout the whole game tended to be scrambly and 
rough with the T.C.S. team being very tense. The first 
quarter was quite slow with few shots and not much action 
on the floor. In the last part of the first quarter T.C.S. 
clicked for a few minutes with a very rapid scoring of nine 
points, to the Rascals' two points. In the second quarter 
the play was again dead, for the first part but then the 
Rascals took the lead and at half-time the score was 14-9 
for the Rascals. The play now began to loosen up a little 
and the action became much faster. The third quarter 
was quite fast with both teams having a hard time gaining 
the offensive. About the middle of the quarter T.C.S. 
gained the upper hand and the score at the end of the third 
quarter was a close 19-18 in favour of T.C.S. The last 
quarter was very close with the two scores being within 
one point of each other until T.C.S. again broke loose to 
up the score to 26-23. A final rush by the Rascals in the 
closing moments of the game was repulsed and the game 
ended at 26-23, for T.C.S. 

Rogers and Gaunt played well for T.C.S. while Wat- 
son and Creighton were the Rascals' top men. 


T.O.S. — Gaunt, Rogers, French, Wismer, Brewer, Dame, 3mith. 
Watts, Sweny, Carson, Conyers ii, Mclntyre. 

Port Hope — Bonguard, Watson, Cummings, Creighton, D. Ful-

At Port Hope, January 18: Lost 47-35 

Although much smaller than their opponents, a fight- 
ing T.C.S. team put up a Hard battle but were imable to de- 
feat the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. Play was even until 
late in the first quarter when three successive baskets gave 
the Alpha Delts the lead which they never relinquished. 
Throughout the remainder of the first half the School was 
greatly out-played by the Alpha Delts who built up an 
eleven point lead over the School's fifteen points. 

T.C.S. pressed hard in the third quarter but the Alpha 
Delts kept pace with the School's scoring and the quarter 
ended with the score at 37-25. In the final quarter both 
teams attacked strongly and the Delts rapidly scored ten 
points. In the final minutes. Trinity attacked with Rogers 
scoring three baskets. 

Gourlay with twenty-three points for the Alpha Delts 
was the outstanding player on the floor, scoring baskets 
from all conceivable angles. Clement with twelve points 
also played well for the Fraternity. Rogers led the Trinity 
attack with eighteen points whilst French and Gaunt play- 
ed well. 

T.C.S. — Rogers, Brewer, Gaunt, Wismer, French, Dame, Sweny, 
Conyers, Smith, Carson, Mclntyre, Watts.

Murrich, Clement, Wright, Cole. Evens. 


At Port Hope. January 22: Won 30-28 

The first basketball squad had a fight on their hands 
when they played Pickering's first team, and it was nip and 


tuck all the way to the last second of play, the School 
emerging on the long end of a 30-28 score. 

Pickering used the opening minutes of play to good 
advantage and caught the T.C.S. squad off guard, the re- 
sult being an 11-6 lead for the former team at quarter 
time. However, the School seemed to wake up in the 
latter part of the first half, and soon took the lead, scor- 
ing twelve points in the second quarter and leaving a half- 
time score of 18-11 in their favour. 

The second half was a more evenly matched one, how- 
ever, and Pickering did their best to even the score, while 
the T.C.S. squad held their own. The final whistle blew 
ending the game in a 30-28 win for the School. 

There was little to choose between the teams, both 
played good basketball all the way. For Pickering, Hugh 
Edighoffer and Mills Keenlyside were best; Wismer, Rogers 
and Brewer were the best for T.C.S. 

Pickering — B. Capes, T. Humphry, D. Waddell, C. Bennet, J. 
Spring, M. Keenlyside, D. Crowther, C. Thompson, T. Lawrence. 
H. Edighoffer. 

T.C.S. — Rogers, Brewer, Wismer, N. Conyers, Smith, Dame, 
Sweny, Watts, Mclntyre, Gaunt, Carson, French. 

At Port Hope, Jajiuary 29: Won 54-53 

In their first C.O.S.S.A. league game of the season, the 
First Team showing a fighting spirit, came from behind 
with a thrilling rally to edge out the fast-breaking Cobourg 
team 54-53. A closely fought battle all the way, the winning 
basket was scored with only three seconds left in the game. 

Cobourg ran wild at the start of the game, and due 
to Quigley's shooting had built up a comfortable lead of 
16-5 at quarter time. Then the School began to find them- 
selves in the second quarter until by half time they had 
narrowed the gap to five points, though Cobourg still led 
30-25. It was Wismer's accurate sniping, as he scored 
fourteen points, that kept the School going in this half.

It is with feelings of deep s.itisf.iction 
we are alile to present to the School the first 
number of the T. C. S. Record. 

As the name implies, it will be the Record of 
the School; not only of .ill that takes place 
within her walls and playground, but of the 
doings and careers of that larger and ever in- 
creasing body, who are just as much a part of 
the School, the Old Hoy.s. We do not mean 
that our columns will be closed to articles of 
a more ambitious nature, but our main object 
is to chronicle .the history of the School. 
There are few, if any, Schools of importance 
which do not publish a magazine of some 
kinl. and such names as the "Meteor", the 
"Elizabethan", the "Wykehamist" are well 
known the world over and form not the weak- 
est link in the chain that binds men to their 
Old School. We venture to say that Old 
Boys of T. C. S. have often felt the loss of 
such a magazine to keep them informed of 
what is being d >ne here, and we feel confident 
that they will welcome the Record with 
open arms 

These arc the reasons which have led to 
the establishment of the paper, and they are 
such as to appeal to all who have the School's 
welfare at heart. 

Some five years ago a School paper was 
published under the title of "Red and Black," 
but it died out with the departure of the first 
editors. The present magazine is issued with 
the sanction and approval of the Head 
Master and will be directed by a Committee 
chosen from the xVIasters, so that once estab- 
lished it is not likely to fade away, but rather, 
we hope, to grow in usefulness and importance 
until it becomes one of the strongest institut- 
ions ol the School. 

With these words we leave The Recorh to 
fight its own way, fully assured that Trinity 
College School will give it a loyal and unwav- 
ering support. 

The Managers of The Record wish to take 
this opportunity of tendering their sincere 
thanks to those who have taken the advertising 
spaces. We hope that the School will re- 
member the advertisers and give them the 
support which they so well deserve. 

The Record will be issued twice each term, 
once at the half term, and once at its close. 
The columns will be open to news of 
interest to the School, and we ask Old 
Boys to send us any information concern- 
ing their movements or those of others. The 
subscription is fifty cents a year. 

A scries r>( articles ..n the history of the Sch.v.l,

that several items concerning "Old Boys, ' and some 
other articles have to be helil over until our next is-

In the second half the game became even harder 
fought as both teams battled vigorously and displayed 
speed and scoring ability. Time and time again the School 
came within one point of tying the score but each time the 
sharp-shooting of Quigley and Holland kept the visitors out 
in front by a narrow margin. Then with about three 
minutes left in the last quarter Wismer brought the house 
down when he put the School in the lead for the first time 
in the game, on a nice play set up by Rogers. For a while 
the School maintained a narrow lead, but with only twelve 
seconds left Holland scored what looked like the winning 
shot to put Cobourg back into the lead by one point. The 
School then rushed back down the floor and Brewer set up 
Wismer for the winning basket, a set shot from about the 
foul line, with three seconds left, to give T.C.S. the victory 

Both teams displayed a terrific brand of fighting 
basketball in the fast high-scoring encoimter, to make it 
one of the best games ever seen here. Quigley, with twenty- 
four points, was the spearhead of the Cobourg attack, 
while Wismer's scoring of twenty-three points and Brewer's 
checking stood out for the School, though the whole team 
worked together very well. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt (1). Rogers (12), Brewer (14), Dame, French (4), 
Wismer (23), Watts, Sweny, Conyers ii, Mclntyre. 

Cobourg — Quigley (24), Holland (10), Crego (6), McGulre (4), 
Ball (6), Bevan. Allender (3), Rolphe. 

At Oshaua, January 81: Lost S4-24 

In a low scoring game T.C.S. lost out to Oshawa by a 
ten point margin. Trinity seemed unable to adjust them- 
selves to a smaller floor thus giving Oshawa a decided ad- 
vantage throughout the game. Early in the first quarter 
T.C.S. took a 6-2 lead on baskets by Rogers and Wismer, 
but Oshawa came right back to gain a 9-6 lead at quarter- 
time. For the remainder of the half Oshawa kept the 


ball moving and by quick rushes succeeded in widening 
their lead. T.C.S. fought back hard but seemed unable to 
score, the Oshawa guards clearing the ball well under their 
own basket. During the third quarter neither team was 
able to gain any advantage due mainly to inaccurate shoot- 
ing and wild passes. The score at the end of the quarter 
being 25-14. 

In the final period of the game Trinity played extreme- 
ly well and after successive baskets looked like taking the 
lead but in the final minutes their attack was turned to de- 
fense, as Oshawa scored five points to clinch their victory. 

The best players on the floor for Oshawa were Craw- 
ford and Dell, who with ten points each led the Oshawa 
attack. Trinity showed a lack of drive throughout the 
game and the forwards missed many rebounds under the 
Oshawa basket. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Brewer, Dame, Rogers, French, Wismer, Watts, 
Sweny, Mclntyre, Conyers. 

Oshawa — Crawford, Elliott, Reddock, Mozewsky, W. Chant, 
Dell, Hanna, J. Chant. 


Trinity College School defeated Port Hope Rascals 34- 
32 in a very close game as the score would indicate. For 
the first three quarters the two squads on Bigside played 
the same amount of time and the second squad played 
very well. 

Trinity started its second team and in the first five 
minutes, the Rascals took a 6-2 lead. When the first squad 
took the floor the action became very fast and at quarter 
time the score was tied six all. 

The second squad started the second quarter and the 
Rascals were much superior and took a 14-8 lead. With 
the return of the first team play was even and at half time 
the Rascals led 18-12. 

Reversing his policy of the first half, Coach Hodgetts 
started the first squad but the Rascals were equal to the 


challenge and when the second squad took the floor the 
Rascals led 22-16. The second team went on a scoring 
rampage and sank four baskets to give T.C.S. the lead 
24-22. The first squad played the liist quarter and held the 
slim two point margin to win the game 34-32. 

For Port Hope, Bonguard and Ciiraming played well 
while there were no individual stars on the T.C.S. squad.

Although the team has lost its first four starts, to Picker- 
ing 32-13, Bowmanville 29-16, Peterborough 42-27, and Co-

Since we last went to Press the Junior School Christ- 
mas Entertainment and the Carol Service have again pass- 
ed into history. 

Thanks and congratulations are due the masters and 
boys who gave so much of their efforts and spare time to 
making the Christmas Entertainment a success. They had 
many difficulties to contend with and the final result did 
great credit to all concerned. 

The Choir and Mr. Cohu are also to be congratulated 
on a particularly fine Carol Service — the result of much 
hard work. 

Mrs. Sturgeon, our nurse-matron for the last four 
years, has been obliged to retire on account of ill-health. 
Our sincere thanks to her for looking after the health of 
the J.S. so well during her time here and our best wishes 
for a speedy recovery and the very best of luck in the 

We welcome Mrs. Stephenson and her two sons to the 
Junior School. Mrs. Stephenson is taking over the position 
of Nurse-Matron and we hope that both she and her family 
will enjoy their time at the School. 

The hobby room is once again in full operation and a 
number of good models are on the assembly lines. 

The use of scrap Plexiglass had been introduced into 
our Manual Training periods. While this is an experiment 
at the moment, it is hoped that some good results may be 
obtained with this new medium. 

While we have been a bit handicapped by snow con- 
ditions, it has been possible to take a number of boys out 
skiing. We hope for a great deal more of this! 



This year the Junior School again produced their own 
Christmas programme known as The Junior School Varie- 

Two short plays and one skit put on by the members 
of the Prep, forms opened the evening's entertainment. 
These were all well performed, Richardson and McDonough 
deserving special mention for their play "Harry's Pockets". 
Mrs. Moore is to be congratulated on the good results she 
obtained with all three of her productions. 

The Sleep-Walking scene from "Macbeth" came next, 
put on by members of the top form. Pitt as Lady Macbeth 
gave an outstanding performance which few of us will for- 

This was followed by the ever-popular J.S. Chorus — 
which numbered many "beautiful girls" — in the song 
"Silvery Moon". 

The scene telling of the death of Lady Macbeth came 
next with Ketchum playing the part of Macbeth very ably. 

Abdul Abulbul Ameer again brought the Chorus to the 
stage with Weicker and Southam i fighting fiercely as Ivan 
and Abdul respectively. 

A scene from Henry IV put on by members of Form 
HA carried the programme on. Symons as Prince Hal did 
an excellent job ably assisted by Taylor, Church i and Wild- 
ing. Particular congratulations are due to Taylor as Fal- 
staff who had to stand-in at the last moment for Martin 
who was in the Infirmary. 

The Chorus closed the programme with "No! No! A 
Thousand Times No! ! " This number was very well re- 
ceived and produced the star of the evening in Carr-Harris 
as the hero. He was very ably assisted by Tench as the 
villain and Woods as the "blonde" heroine. 

The evening closed with the singing of the National

The room was very quiet and peaceful except for the 
incessant ringing of an alarm clock which, for the last 
thirty seconds, had been trying to convince the occupant 
of the bed in the corner that it was time to get up. Then 
the alarm died away and once more quiet descended over 
the room until, ten minutes later, the peace was again dis- 
turbed by a wild flurry of blankets and sheets and a few 
seconds later a youth in his middle teens gazed at the now 
peaceful clock and realized that he had seven minutes to 
reach a nearby High School that he attended. He dived 
for his clothes 

Three minutes later the boy, trying to look immacu- 
late but failing utterly at this task, rushed out the door of 
his house and raced down the street knocking over two 
cats, a dog, one apple cart, one street cleaner, and the post- 
man. He was just rounding the comer of a busy thorough- 
fare when he was brought to an abrupt halt by the voice 
of a newsboy: 

"Extra, extra, read all about it; get your Saturday 
morning paper here; extra, extra."

I heartily believe that a good "murder movie" or a 
"Humphrey Bogart" thriller is quite worthwhile going to 
see; however there is no denying that after sitting through 
any such picture you become a little jumpy. I am certainly 
no exception to this rule so, after saying good-bye to Dave 
Miller (who had gone to the movies with me this particular 
Saturday afternoon), I was a little startled as I opened our 
front door and heard: 

"Now don' gat me wrong sister. I dun mean you no 
harm. Gimme the five grand and I'll blow." 


"Oh. you horrible man". I could distinctly hear Teddy's 
Nurse-Ann reply. "You know very well I haven't that 
much money with me li^ht now. Youll have to give me 
some more time." 

"Now look here sister, don' feed me that line again. I 
aim to get thet money here and now or your folks'll hear 
from me." 

"Oh no! (groan) you wouldn't". By now I was quite 
bewildered. One thing however was certain, our dear Nurse- 
Ann was in some kind of trouble. Was someone trying to 
blackmail her. and if so. what for? These thoughts raced 
through my mind as I quickly closed the front door, took 
off my overcoat and rubbers, and wondered what to do. 
Then as I began to creep on tip-toe towards the door, my 
eyes came to rest on Mother's old antique china vase : why, 
it would be the perfect thing to throw at this villain. I 
advanced towards the vase, lifted it off its stand and pro- 
ceeded towards the open doorway. I could still hear the 
sound of their voices but my mind was so preoccupied with 
thoughts of how I was going to throw the vase and whether 
or not to call the police that I could not clearly make out 
what they were saying. I was getting closer and closer; 
every muscle in my body was tensed ready to strike. Then 
in one motion I had stepped into the doorway and drawn 
back my arm ready to hurl the great vase . . . but I never 
threw it. I never said a thing. I just stared in amazement 
at the scene which confronted me. Nurse-Ann was there 
alright playing her part to the letter, but opposite her, clad 
in an old plaid shirt and a mask was not a murderous 
villain but my young brother Teddy, having the time of his

2nd Team Captain F. E. Weicker 

Vice-Captain W. J. Farley 

With two old colours back and some likely recruits 
from last year's Second Team, this year's squad has shown 
promise. Like everybody else, we have been very short of 
practice and we have been humming the old favourite "It's 
June in January". With the help of a little ice the team 
should be able to look after themselves. Games have been 
arranged with Lakefield, U.C.C, S.A.C., and Ridley.

The name of F. E. Weicker was inadvertently omitted 
from the list of First Team rugby colours which appeared

The Old Boys' dinner was held on January 4th, 1898 
at Webb's in Toronto. We are told that "the most perfect 
harmony prevailed. Excellent songs were contributed by 
Dr. Crawford Scadding (Grandfather of Roger Kir kpa trick) 
and Mr. Wyly Grier (now Sir Wyly)." Professor C. L. 
Worrell was President of the O.B.A. and made a splendid 
speech. Dr. Bethune. Headmaster, mentioned that he had 
had 1300 boys mider his care. Other speakers were Dr. 
Parkin (Head of U.C.C), Provost Welch. Chancellor Allan. 
Professor Jones, E. D. Armour, Kirwan Martin and the Rev. 
G. H. Broughall. Mr. E. D. Armour told tales of the Weston 
days. The success of the dinner was in large part due to 
the organizing energy of H. C. Osborne (now CJolonel H.C., 
a Governor), assisted by Frank Darling and Alexis Martin. 
U.C.C. seems to have been well represented at the dinner; 
we have always had close ties with that famous School. 

Among the better known T.C.S. men present were L. 
H. Baldwin, A. M. Bethune, Clarence Bogert, R. C. H. Cas- 


sels, The Rev. E. C. Cayley, W. E. Davidson, P. E. Hender-

Saunders. J. Grayson Smith, G. E, Spragge, R. Sweny, 
H. S. Thome, A. B. Wilkie, C. S. Wilkie, J. A. Worrell. 

A tribute was paid to Mrs. Jellett who had been the 
much loved Matron: 

"Mrs. Jellett has gone to live in Toronto. Her loss 
was very much felt. During the years in which she was 
with us we learned to value and appreciate her unweary- 
ing energy and kindness. No trifle was too small for her 
sympathy, and many a new boy will remember her kindness 
to him during the trying ordeal of his first week away 
from home." Mrs. Jellett was the mother of R. P. Jellett 

and J. M. Jellett. 

« « • * * 

Deep regret was also expressed at the fact that Mrs. 
Montizambert had moved away from Port Hope. She had 
been a most hospitable hostess to T.C.S. boys. 

* * • * * 

H. M. Rathbun was mentioned as a Sergeant at R.M.C.. 
A. B. Wilkie a Corporal; H. C. Osborne had been offered 
the Conservative nomination in S. Brant; H. J. Campbell 
had gone to Australia; D. W. Saunders had captained "the

in several countries as a cricketer and as a distinguished 
Canadian who always "played cricket".) Garrett Cochrane

taking an honour course in Mathematics, having won a 
Scholarship in Maths from T.C.S.

to the staff of the Bank of Montreal in Brantford. He is 
now President of the Royal Trust Co. and a Senior Gover- 
nor of the School. 


Prof. R. A. Fessenden, it is noted in the New York 
Post, had completed a portable x-ray apparatus for use by 
surgeons in the South African War. R. A. Fessenden be- 
came a distinguished Engineer and Inventor; in the bio- 
graphy published a few years ago a letter is quoted in 
which he says he began his experiments when a pupil at 
T.C.S. The Headmaster spoke about him at the Leaving

real attending business college, seriously studying his music 
at McGill, and training with the Black Watch of Canada. 
He is looking forward to visiting the School as soon as he 
can find some spare time. (He has now been here and 

entertained us in Hall). 


Pat Allen ('40-'45) has found his niche m radio work 
and can be heard on the N.B.C. network, being Master of 


Ceremonies on "Curtain Time". After dabbling in amateur 
radio work during the past year he sometimes finds it hard 
to beheve he is now on a coast-to-coast network and expect- 
mg to tour the States with his radio group. He says his 
experience in plays at T.C.S. has been of much help to him 
and he hopes to squeeze in a visit to the School soon.

The R.C.M.P. Quarterly for October, 1946, had an in- 
teresting article on the distinguished career of H. A. Les- 
tock Reid. Dr. Reid was bom in Australia in 1868 but be- 
fore he was a year old his family brought him to Brazil. 
The voyage by sailing ship took over five months. In 1877 
he went to Prince Albert and since that time he has made 
his home there. Dr. Reid was at T.C.S. from 1880 until 
1886, going on to the old Trinity Medical College, Toronto. 
In later years he visited medical centres in many parts of 
the world. 

It is given to few men to serve a conmiunity so long 
and so faithfully as Dr. Reid has. Last September he com- 


pleted sixty-nine years of residence at Prince Albert and a 
civic banquet was given in his honour. Mr. Justice T. C. 
Davis, recently returned from Australia where he was High 
Commissioner for Canada, paid fitting tribute to Dr. Reid. 

Dr. Reid's two sons also came to T.C.S., J. L. Reid 
('30-'34), and T. L. Reid ('30-'34). 

The School congratulates Dr. Reid on his distinguished

Pat Black is completing fourth year Arts and his first 
year in Law in the space of one college session. He ex- 
pects to spend part of the coming summer in France. 

Tim Blaiklock, Dick Birks. Bill Dobell. John Dumford. 
George Fulford, Gay Goodall. Roger Holman. Bob Hope, 
Geoff Lehman. Art Matthewson, and Bob Morgan are all 
in second year Arts. Tim is the manager of the track team 
and has taken an active part with Dick Birks in running 
the gala Athletics Nights at the gym. which have been at- 
tended by crowds of up to 3,000. George T. has been cul- 
tivating glorious new mustaches! 


Chris Bovey is in third year Chemical Engineering 
with Peter Layne, and they find that fifteen hours of lab 
and nineteen hours of lectures a week take up all too much 
of their time. Chris is taking an active part in the Red 
and White Revue and the Athletics Nights and does work 
for the "Daily" periodically. 

Chester Butterfield, Arthur Carlisle, Susie Ketchum, 
David MacCallan, Dave Morgan, and Jim Paterson are all 
in the same year of Arts. Chester still has that great flare 
for music and plays drum in the band. Mac is back at col- 
lege to get an Arts degree after receiving his B.Sc. Last 
autumn Dave Morgan was assistant to Pete Turcot man- 
aging the first football team, but has now taken over the 
job himself. Dave and Jim Paterson are two more Old 
Boys who are officiating during the Athletics Nights. Jim 
is very much in the news at McGill this year. His most 
notable achievement has been the winning of a Rhodes 
Scholarship; this was announced by the committee in 
charge during the Christmas holidays. Jim is also Presi- 
dent of the McGill Liberal Club, chairman of the Arts and 
Science Debating Society, Arts and Science representative 
to the Students' Executive Council, a member of the Fresh- 
man Reception Committee, and the co-winner with a Ridley 
College Old Boy of a debate held at Osgoode Hall earlier 
this year. 

Tony Chipman, Dave Common, Dave Hume, and Andy 
and Ross LeMesurier are in fourth year Arts; Dave Com- 
mon is President of fourth year Arts and Science and Vice- 
President of the Debating Union Society. A nose injury 
has prevented him from continuing his very successful 
boxing career and so this year he is officiating as the team's 
manager. Andy is doing very well at squash and has play- 
ed with the first team a number of times. 

Dave Culver is in fourth year Science with Dave 
Fricker and Hugh McLennan. Dave Culver is on the first 
squash team. Hugh drives out to Dawson College twice a 
week to do some part-time instructing. 


Skip Finley. Paul Lebrooy. and Jim Tliompson are 
third year Commerce men. Skip takes a j^reat interest in 
all campus activities, and he has done the announcin.^ at 
the football games and the Athletics Nights. Jim was in 
charge of the organization of two parties the fraternities 
put on at Christmas for underprivileged children; one of 
these was held at Father Dann's Church. 

Doug. Huestis and Bart Sutherland are the only Old 
Boys at McGill who are in Medicine. Doug is active in the 
sailing world and is manager of the rowing club; he is also 
representative on the Students' Athletic Council for soccer, 
English rugby, sailing and rowing. 

Pete Landr\' is the captain of the McGill Squash Team. 
and he has brought singular honours to McGill this year. 
By winning the University Club Invitation Intercollegiate 
Squash Tournament in New York, he set himself up as the 
foremost intercollegiate player in the U.S. and Canada. 
During the matches Pete was up against players from Har- 
vard, Princeton, Williams, Yale. M.I.T., Amherst, West 
Point, and Dartmouth. Among the eight winners appear- 
ing on the massive cup are Germain Glidden and Charlie 
Brinton, both three times national champions of the U.S. 
Later, Pete broke all precedents when, as a young player, 
he defeated the old-timers to capture the Province of Que- 
bec- singles crown. 


McGill's Fraternities and Sororities gave two large 
parties last Christmas for children in some of the poorer 
sections of Montreal. Among those present were a great 
number of T.C.S. Old Boys. 

The first party was for children of all creeds attending 
Royal Arthur School in the Griff intov^Ti Area of Montreal, 
approximately 115 children were present. The second 
party was given for children attending Sunday school 
classes at the Church of St. John the Evangelist, at which 


the Rev. Eyre Dann is now Curate; approximately 150 
children were present. 

The programme for both parties read as follows: 
"Elats - Carols - Enter Santa preceded by Black Watch 
Pipers - Giving out of presents - Exit Santa plus bagpipes - 
Carols." All unforeseen circumstances were taken care of 
by the following drill: "Piano plays, Santa shouts, bag- 
pipes blow." 

One of the major highlights of the first party was a 
little darkie (aged 8) who, when asked by the McGillette 
in the checkroom what his number was, replied by ga2dng 
fondly into her eyes and saying: "You're mah numbah, 

Highlights of the second party were Father Dann (in 
cassock plus "reversible"), and Bart Sutherland ('39-'42) 
(in Santa plus beard) when they did the highland fling as 
the pipes played "The Road to the Isles". The house didn't 
stop laughing for five minutes. 

Both parties were made possible by the enthusiastic 
and wholehearted participation of McGill students who 
gave not only of their pockets (adequately) but also (and 
more so) of their time and effort. 

It might further be mentioned that thus far all pub- 
hcity concerning these parties has been discouraged by the 
Fraternities on the McGill campus. Mention is made of 
them in the Record, not as a Fraternity publicity campaign, 
but rather as a very worthwhile idea that T.C.S. Old Boys 
might put into execution elsewhere.

We were all deeply saddened to hear of the death of

sends its deep sympathy to Mrs. Hampson and her family. 

Greville Hampson came to T.C.S. in 1894 and remained 
until June. 1897. At T.C.S. he was a Prefect and played 
on the Football team of 1806. He was on the Committee 
of the Gymnasium Club and won the Grand Challenge Cup 
for athletics. 

He entered McGill University and after graduation 
went into the insurance business. He had been Vice Presi- 
dent of the Montreal Loan & Mortgage Co. 

Mr. Hampson had for many years been a Vice Presi- 
dent of the Old Boys' Association and always took a keen 
interest in his old School. His son John was at T.C.S. for 
five years from 1934 until 1939.

The athletic programme this term has been perhaps 
the fullest that it has ever been largely because of the in- 
creasing number of boys taking part in games. There has 
been a great deal of enthusiasm among all the boys and 
consequently more games have been arranged with outside 
schools. This increase has not in any way affected the 
teams already established but has been introduced to give 
more boys a chance to participate. It has, however, been 
criticized for interrupting the boys' study, with the sug- 


gestion being made that intra-mural games be played by 
all but first teams. 

While there have been interruptions to study due to 
games, this time has frequently been made up by players 
in the afternoons. The important point overlooked, how- 
ever, is that, in viewing the number of teams we had this 
term, no particular group of athletes is participating in 
more games and activities than usual but that a greater 
number of boys are getting the chance to compete, some- 
thing that they could not do if there were fewer teams. 
Consequently, each individual boy has lost very little study 
time through his participation in athletics. Even at the 
height of the season, most boys playing on teams missed 
only one study, a few two. It does not appear, therefore, 
that undue stress has been placed on athletics. Un- 
doubtedly it was members of the first teams that missed 
the greatest amount of work, but it is obvious that until 
sports are completely abolished, first teams will continue 
to function. If sports are curtailed, the teams to suffer 
by this change will be the lower teams — middleside and 
littleside. Yet these groups did not miss nearly as 
much school as did the other teams. Why should they, 
then, be the ones to lose out? Another pertinent factor 
is that the first teams will suffer if there are fewer teams 
under them preparing first team material; for no one can 
jump from an intra-mural league to a first team and ex- 
pect to be as good as someone who has had good coach- 
ing and outside game experience on second and third teams. 
And as the calibre of athletics goes down, so does the 
reputation of the school, for the majority of people judge 
T.C.S. — or any school — on the teams that represent it. Of 
late, T.C.S. teams have held their own with other schools. 
Is this reputation not worth preserving, if possible? 

If, however, some change is needed in the athletic 
policy, simply removing a few of the teams is not the 
solution. This merely robs some boys of any chance to 
participate in athletics while it leaves others in exactly the 


same situation they were in this year. This is not in any 
way curing the evil but merely reducing it to smaller pro- 
portions. A fairer and more constructive change would be 
to set a certain standard in work which boys must reach 
in order to be allowed to play games. This would give the 
younger and less skilled boys in the School as much chance 
to play as it would the first team players. It would also 
make it less disastrous for teams to miss a bit of study 
now and then. For if all the players were obtaining suit- 
able marks, it wouldn't hurt them to be away occasionally. 
This idea may be criticized from the point of view of first 
teams who could ill afford to lose valuable players because 
they weren't getting good enough marks. The answer to 
this is that most outstanding players are keen enough 
athletes to make a distinct effort to keep their marks above 
the grade and to make up any work that they have missed. 
If they are not willing to do this then they are not as 
valuable as was thought. 

It is worth repeating that the good name of the School 
depends to a large extent on its athletics. The ability and 
character that boys develop on the playing field are, there- 
fore, very important. These abilities can only be learned 
by practice and experience. More important than the 
actual skills are all the characteristics of good sportsman- 
ship which are learned on the playing fields. These are 
surely worth preserving and what is more, they should be 
acquired by as large a group as possible. Let us not 
minimize a very essential side of our education.

The Headmaster's Sermon 

On Sunday, February 6, the Headmaster read the 
second in the series of radio talks given over the B.B.C. by 
Professor C. S. Lewis. Before starting to read, he went 
over a few of the sahent facts which had been brought out 
in the first part of the talks. 

In the address which the Headmaster read. Professor 
Lewis shows that the Moral Law of which he speaks is 
neither an animal instinct, nor a mere human convention. 
He shows that it is not an instinct because something 
prompts us to follow certain instincts such as that of 
helping someone in danger even when we have a stronger 
instinct of self-preservation. This "something" cannot it- 
self be an instinct. Also if the "Moral Law" were merely 
an instinct or collection of instincts, we could say that some 
natural impulses were right and some wrong. Yet all our 
instincts will sometimes prompt us to evil and sometimes 
to good. 

If the Moral Law was merely a human convention 
then it would be nothing more than the moral standards 
of the particular country in which one dwelt. Anyone will 
admit that our moral code is better than that of Hitler, 
while this very comparison shows that there is some real 
"Moral Law" with which the codes of different countries 
can be compared. 


The Church in Japan 

On February 16, the Rev. H. G. Watts preached at 
Evensong. He had just returned from a trip to Japan 
where he was sent by the Archbishop of Canterbury with 
three others to make a report on the condition of the 
AngUcan Church in Japan. He spoke to us of the damage 
that has been done to it. Contrary to common opinion he 
said that Hiroshima and Nagisaki were not the only towns 
destroyed. In all, 119 cities were bombed beyond recogni- 
tion and in one raid on Tokio there were over 300,000 
casualties. This figure is more than the total losses sus- 
tained by the American Army throughout the entire war. 
Of the twenty-three English Churches in Japan all but 
three were levelled to the ground. This is much more 
stupendous than it appears in cold print when one considers 
that most of the work of the Japanese missions was accom- 
plished in these buildings. 

Mr. Watts pointed out that there were dark pages in 
our history as well as in the history of enemy countries, 
and said that it was our duty as Christians to support any 
attempt to send missionaries to these parts of the world. 

The Visit of Rev. R. H. Loosemore 

It was with much pleasure that we welcomed back to 
the School the Rev. R. H. Loosemore of the Order of St. 
John the Evangelist after a period of seven years. He spent 
a week at the School from March 2 to March 10 on his mis- 
sion, conducting a service of Holy Communion every morn- 
ing at seven o'clock, and evening Chapel every night. Each 
night he gave us a short talk, basing his talks on the ques- 
tion, "How are we going to get to know God better?" He 
emphasized the fact that we must do more real praying, 
and that we must really devote ourselves to God, until we 
finally become a part of Him, and He becomes a part of 
us. During the Religious Knowledge classes, Father Loose- 


more very kindly undertook to tell us about the work he 
and his brothers did at Bracebridge. 

We were very sad to have Father Loosemore leave us, 
for he had become one of us. We should like to thank 
him very much for all he did for us and we hope that he 
will return in the not too distant future. 

On Sunday, March 9, Rev. R. Loosemore gave his final 
address in the Chapel. 

He said that in the Bible there were tvvo statements 
which at first seem very contradictory. "The Church is 
the house of God", and "God does not dwell in temples 
built by man". Both of these statements, however, are 
true. The Church does not refer to a building, but to the 
whole mass of Christians throughout the world. 

All those people who claim that they do not have to 
go to church are, in a way, right; but we must remember 
that God is much more likely to bestow His grace on those 
who come to worship at the symbol of His throne. 

Father Loosemore concluded by urging us to pray 
steadfastly and to listen carefully to God's words, for He 
alone can guide us along the right paths. 

Mr. Bagley 

On the Sunday following Father Loosemore's visit, the 
Chaplain spoke in Chapel and explained to us one or two 
of the questions which had come up during discussions of 
Father Loosemore's sermons. Mr. Bagley took as his 
text the first verse of St, John's Gospel: "In the beginning 
was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word 
was God". 

His sermon dealt with the world, the universe, and 
God, and especially the relationship between the three. He 
pointed out however, that although there are explanations 
of some of the works of God, He cannot be known by us 
without an effort on our part. 



Archdeacon Bickerstech with the Headmaster 


After two months of campaigning the receipts for 
this fund now total seventy-five thousand dollars. Many 
T.C.S. people have not yet been approached, and it is 
earnestly hoped that the total by the end of June will be 
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. 

Some Old Boys and Friends have been extremely 
generous in their contributions. The parents of boys have 
been particularly kind. 

Of the seventy-five thousand dollars already contri- 
buted fifty thousand has been given by twenty-five sub- 
scribers; some three hundred other Old Boys and Friends 
have given the balance of twenty-five thousand. 

As we have nearly twenty-five hundred T.C.S. names 
on our list it is obvious that there should be many more 
donors to the fund. 

There seems to be an impression in some quarters that 
if two hundred and fifty thousand or three hundred thou- 
sand dollars should be given, it will all be spent on the 
fabric of the building. The Governing Body has no inten- 
tion of doing that. It is fully realized that an endowment 
fund is an absolute necessity if the School is to weather 
the storms of the future, and a proportion of the fund will 
be devoted to that purpose. 

At a splendid campaign meeting organized by the 
Ladies' Guild and held at Trinity College, Toronto, in 
February, Bishop Renison gave an inspiring address. He 
mentioned that nothing could be so fitting for a memorial 
to our gallant lads as a Chapel, and he expressed the hope 
that the contributions would enable us to proceed with the 
building very soon even if it could not be completed in 
every detail for some years. 

Building costs are just double the amount they were 
in 1939, but contracting firms confidently expect them to 
be much less within a year. 

Have you made your contribution? If not please 
send it without delay. Have you given the most you can 
afford, realizing the nature of this memorial? If not. will 
you add to your subscription?

Gifts to the School 

Dick Wotherspoon ('25-'41) has sent his First Team 
sweater-coat, and no more acceptable gift could be imagined 
in these days when sweater-coats are not obtainable. 


R. P. Jellett ('92-'97) sent 300 interesting booklets on 
the "Government of Canada"; they have been distributed 
to boys in the School. 

The Dominion Securities Corporation gave us a num- 
ber of attractive booklets on the United Nations; they are 
very useful to the Senior boys. 

Peter MacKinnon ('37-'41) brought down two almost 
new School blazers, which are being put to very good use 
by a couple of boys. 

The Headmaster Honoured 

The Headmaster was informed early this year that he 
had been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. 
London, England. This Society was founded in 1754 for 
"the encouragement of arts, manufactures and commerce". 
It has taken a leading part in promoting education and ex- 
panding the basis of it. 

H, R. H. Prince Albert was for many years the Presi- 
dent of the Society and under his direction the Society 
organized the Great Exhibition of 1851. 


The Society holds weekly meetings from November to 
May at which a lecture on some important subject is given, 
it publishes a journal fortnightly, it offers scholarships 
and bursaries to students, it awards the Albert Medal, and 
it interests itself in such matters as the preservation of 
ancient buildings, afforestation, improvements in naviga- 
tion, the teaching of the Arts, etc. 

The Archdeacon's Address 

On January 24, the School was honoured by a visit 
from the Archdeacon of Canterbury who gave a short ad- 
dress to the School in the gymnasium. 

Archdeacon Bickersteth mentioned how much he was 
enjoying his visit to Canada, a country where many hun- 
dreds of English children had found happy homes during 
the war. He said how glad he was to be able to come to the 
School, especially since the Archbishop had been unable to 
visit it when he came to Canada last year. 

He spoke of Canterbury Cathedral and of its great 
irreplaceable architecture which the Germans had tried so 
hard to destroy. He told us that many of the buildings 
round about had been demolished and that only by a 
miracle had the cathedral escaped with minor damage. 
One of the buildings that was destroyed was the school 
which was supposed to have been founded in 597. He 
mentioned that they were trying to raise $1,200,000 to re- 
pair the Cathedral and that he was sure that sum could 
be raised by the time the building materials became avail- 

During the war, the Archdeacon said he had had the 
pleasure of showing many Canadian soldiers round the 
cathedral and that these men seemed to have real interest 
in the beauty of the building. Canadian troops also par- 
ticipated in a huge service of prayer in the Cathedral just 
before D day. He said he hoped that if ever any boys from 
the School went to England they would visit the Cathedral. 


He then asked in the name of the Archbishop for a 
half hoHday. The Headmaster granted his request amid 
much applause from the School. 

We feel greatly honoured to have received a visit from 
so distinguished a man as Archdeacon Bickersteth. 

The Toll Travelogue 

On the evening of February 6, Mr. and Mrs. Toll paid 
the School a visit to present one of their Travelogues. Mr. 
Toll told us about the trip he and his brother Ellsworth had 
made through South America in the late 30's. His talk 
was illustrated by some excellent colour slides and movies, 
which revealed to us the beauties of South American lands. 
It wasn't long before we were all travelling with the Toll 
brothers on their trip through Mexico and South America, 
where we saw bull-fights in Mexico, head-hunters of the 
upper Amazon, the reliable donkey of the Andes, the en- 
chanting towns and villages of Peru and Chile, and finally, 
to top everything, the most beautiful city in the world, 
Rio de Janeiro. 

We are most grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Toll for telling 
us so much about the lands beneath the equator, and hope 
that they will return many times in the future, to tell us 
more about their interesting trips across the world. 

Film Committee 

At a meeting of the School Council, on Sunday, 
February 2, it was decided to appoint boys to act as a film 
committee. Mr. Hass is chairman of the committee and 
the members are Hyde, Gaunt, Mclntyre, Tessier, Mc- 
Gregor i, Rogers ii. 

The duties of the committee are: to select programmes 
for showing in the Hall; to select instructional films and 
to recommend films for the School to see in the town 


Due to the poor films which are usually shown in the 
town theatre on week-ends, arrangements will be made by 
which the School may be granted leave to see good films 
on week-days. 

On the recommendation of this committee the School 
was granted leave to see "Blue Skies" on Tuesday, February 
11, and "Two Years Before the Mast" on Tuesday, February 

The School looks forward to seeing more good movies 
than before, both in the town and in the Hall. 

Sports Committee 

At a meeting of the School Council on February 2, it 
was decided to form a Sports Committee. Mr .Hodgetts 
is chairman and the members are the Captains of First 
Team Football, Soccer, Hockey, Basketball, Cricket, 
Squash, Gym., Swimming, Track, Oxford Cup and Skiing. 
The Headmaster is a member ex officio. 

The duties of the committee will be to discuss and 
examine the School's sports equipment and facilities, and 
make recommendations as to any changes or additions 
which they think necessary. 

We hope that the formation of this committee will 
lead to a furtherance of all sports in the School. 

The Pancake Toss 

Again, on Shrove Tuesday, the annual "Pancake 
Toss" was held in the Gym. This old custom was adapted 
in 1913 from Westminster School in England. The Head- 
master said at the beginning of the ceremony that we are 
probably the only school in Canada which has continued 
to make this peculiar practice an annual event. 

Mr. Grace threw the putty over a rope, stnmg across 
the gym. and the scramble began. Strange as it may seem. 


at least half of the pancake vanished immediately and the 
contestants were left to grapple over the remainder. With 
about one minute to go in the fight, it was discovered that 
Cox i, was the individual who was responsible for the dis- 
appearance of the largest part of the cake. He was soon 
at the bottom of the pile and stayed there until time was 
called. Despite this final effort on the part of the others, 
Cox had collected by far the heaviest part of the putty 
and the $5.00 prize was presented to him by Mrs. Ketchum. 
Afterwards he and VIB, the form that he represented, 
proceeded in triumph over to Tuck. 

The Half-Tenn Break 

Yes, six weeks had passed very quickly, and the great 
day had come, for on February 21 the half-term break 
began. By eleven o'clock, only half an hour after the end 
of classes, there was scarcely a soul to be seen; many had 
left on buses for Toronto, while the remainder had left by 
train for Montreal. 

About twenty boys stayed at School over the week- 
end. A short service was held in the School Chapel on 
Sunday morning, after v/hich a number of boys went out 
to the Northumberland Ski Development for the day. The 
break was concluded on Tuesday night, with the return of 
the main body of the School, all looking refreshed and 
ready for the few weeks remaining until the Easter holi- 

Movies in the Hall 

On Saturday, March 16, movies were shown in the 
Hall once again. "This Our Canada" was the name of the 
first selection. It is a reel showing some of the more im- 
portant parts of Canada and it certainly gave each mem- 
ber of the audience a chance to let everyone know when his 
"home town" was being shown. The next part of the pro- 


gramme was a film photographed in technicolor called 
"Trappers of the Sea". This showed us how lobster fishing 
is carried on in the waters around Nova Scotia, and some 
of the hardships that the fishermen must go through in 
order to catch them. A third selection was entitled "The 
Valley of the Tennessee", This tells of how this district 
was changed from backward, useless country to what it is 
to-day. We were also shown interesting "shorts" on Win- 
ter Sports and Water Polo. 

We should like to thank the Movie Committee for 
obtaining the evening's entertainment for us. We shall cer- 
tainly be looking forward to the next showing. 

The Conservatory Trio 

On Thursday, February 27, the School was honoured 
by a visit from the Conservatory Trio. The trio consisted 
of Miss Mary Ann Paul, a most talented young violinist, 
Bill Hossack who, although in his third year of mathe- 
matics and physics at Toronto University, still finds time 
to do excellent work as 'cellist, and George Crum, the 
pianist, who is now studying at the Toronto Conservatory 
of Music. We were especially glad to welcome George 
Crum as he is an Old Boy of the School and is doing ex- 
ceptionally well in his musical studies. 

The programme was very well chosen and because of 
its good balance of light and classical pieces appealed to 
the whole audience, which consisted of the School as well 
as many visitors from the town. The programme included 
part of a trio by Schubert, and a Haydn trio both of which 
were excellently played. There was also the Hungarian 
Dance No. 6 by Brahms and, in a somewhat lighter strain, 
a very clever arrangement of some of the best known 
melodies from Jerome Kern's great musical comedy "Show- 
boat". Each of the trio played a solo. Miss Paul playing 
Gardos by Monti, Mr. Hossack played Cavatina by Raff 
and Mr. Crum played Scherzo by Chopin. 


The whole audience appreciated the programme 
immensely as was shown by the prolonged applause. We 
hope that the trio will be able to visit the School again 
soon and we feel sure from their excellent performance 
that they will go a long way in their musical careers. 

Professor Breckenridge 

On March 14, Dr. Breckenridge, assistant Professor 
of Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto 
visited the School. The professor, who attended U.T.S. 
and R.M.C. before taking his degree at Toronto and doing 
post-graduate work at Cambridge, gave the members of 
the Sixth Form a short talk on Chemical Engineering as 
a profession. 

The professor told us that in Canada's numerous 
chemical industries such as pulp and paper and smelting, 
many chemical engineers are employed either in the re- 
search laboratories, actually in charge of the machines or 
in the design and development section. It is in the latter 
job that the majority of chemical engineers are employed 
and their work includes drawing up plans and models for 
transforming laboratory reactions into plant production. 

Dr. Breckenridge went on to give us some of the per- 
sonal and technical qualifications which he considered 
necessary for a successful career, after which the boys 
asked many questions which Dr. Breckenridge kindly 

We feel sure that everybody in sixth form now has 
a clearer understanding of the work done by chemical en- 
gineers and we should like to thank Dr. Breckenridge for 
his very instructive talk. 



Given at the Annual Meeting Held on March 6 

I have the honour to present the third Annual Report 
of the Trinity College School Ladies' Guild, Montreal. 

Our membership, which consists of mothers and wives 
of boys and Old Boys from Quebec and the Maritimes, has 
increased steadily, and we now have 117 paid-up members, 
sixteen of whom are Life Members. 

There have been two meetings of the Executive Com- 
mittee during the year. 

We have continued sending to the Toronto Guild our 
fee of 25c on each membership, to cover expenses incurred 
by them on our behalf. We also sent them S15 as our 
share of a presentation gift to Miss Fick, upon her retire- 
ment as Nurse-in-charge of the School hospital. 

To Mr. Ketchum we sent $150 for the Montreal Bur-

make this contribution, and we are pleased that each year 
the amount has been enlarged. The choice of who is to

given to a boy of promise whose father, a T.C.S. Old Boy, 
was killed during the war. 

When the War Memorial Campaign opened the Execu-

savings could well be contributed, and we forwarded a

In September, 1919, a veteran of five years' active 
ser\'ice overseas returned to Canada to face the problem 
that every veteran faces after his discharge, the problem 
of life work. However, this veteran, being a lover of war- 
fare, was not long in deciding to enter the educational field. 
His crusade against illiteracy began in King's College 
School, Windsor, Nova Scotia, where after two short years, 
he found the educational standard to be in a state of de- 
cided literacy, and the life quiet and uneventful. He there- 
fore sought some institution where this situation would not 
be prevalent. Surely there were schools where his resist- 
ance to hardship would be put more to the test! His 
highest hopes were fulfilled by the discovery of just such 
a place near Port Hope, Ontario — a boys' boarding school 
in the country. 

Mr. Morris spent his first year at T.C.S. in School 
residence with twenty-one boys; but the first year proved 
to be the last, for he decided that even married life was 
better than this. In 1922, therefore, he lost his freedom 
to a Bluenoser, and jumped from School residence into 
private residence. Mr. Morris started off teaching. Alge- 
bra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Physics. Chemistry, Latin, 
French, and even a little History! Newcomers have always 
been given sufficient work to do at T.C.S. ! 


In 1922 Mr. Morris undertook a formidable responsi- 
bility. Middleside cricket was nearly always composed 
mainly of boys with a minimum of interest in the game, 
and it was always difficult to combine a healthy spirit and 
a high standard of cricket on this team. For eighteen 
years Mr. Morris carried out this hard job admirably, and 
when in 1944, he handed it over to Mr. Gwynne-Timothy 
whom he met twenty-eight years ago at Kings College, 
Windsor, Middleside cricket had a greatly improved spirit. 

Many Old Boys will remember Mr. Morris' "Wood- 
burner", or "the covered wagon", as it was affectionately 
christened by the Junior School boys who used to go for 
picnics in it. It was a 1926 sport touring, Buick model, 
and performed many a useful chore around the School. 
Finally in 1940, Mr. Morris donated it to the Lions Club 
of Port Hope for their social service of collecting waste 
paper for the war effort. Whether or not the "Wood- 
burner" still exists is not known, but it seems doubtful. 

Perhaps some of us wonder about the origin of Mr. 
Morris' great fur hat, which is a familiar sight preceding 
him up the hill to School each morning during the winter. 
It is a plucked beaver which was once sacrificed to make 
a muff for Mrs. Morris. However, the muff one day lay 
on the table beside a pair of scissors, and Mr. Morris came 
in with frozen ears. Anyway, it is fulfilling a useful func- 

Among Mr. Morris' most vivid recollections of past 
years there stands out the unsolved mystery of how a 
rooster once got into a locker in the study room and was 
able to emerge during study. There were several unique 
clubs such as the C.C.C.C. (Cross Corridor Cricket Club) 
which was very active on rainy days and from nine-thirty 
to bedtime, and a secret society known as the "B.T.U." 
(only the members knew the meaning of the letters). The 
B.T.U. held all its meetings outdoors in the bushes along 
the Tuck road, and had all its paraphenalia hidden in a 


Mr. Morris, like every other T.C.S. master, has a 
"title". It is not known when the name "Hard Man" first 
came into existence, but it is felt that it originated in the 
same way as did that of Little John of Sherwood Forest. 
A much more suitable adjective at Trinity would be dur- 

For his loyal and faithful service to the School for a 
quarter of a century, Mr. Morris was last June presented 
with a solid gold watch from the Governing Body, and in 
1945 he had a term's holiday and a well-earned rest. 


Almost since the founding of the School, dramatics 
have formed an important part of the extra-curricular 
activities of the boys. Dr. Johnson tells of entertainment 
put on by- the boys at Weston, consisting of a farce "The 
Slasher and Crasher" followed by two scenes from Shakes- 
peare. In the early days some of the female parts were 
acted by masters' wives to make the roles more natural. 
Mrs. Collinson helped a great deal in this way. This 
practice was revived for a while in 1938, but now all parts 
are acted by the boys themselves. 

In the last ten or fifteen years, there has been no 
organized dramatics club. Those who were interested got 
together because they liked the fun of putting on a play. 
Modern plays such as "The Middle Watch", "Captain 
Applejack", "Tons of Money", "It Pays to Advertise", 
and "The Dover Road" were put on and even Shakespeare's 
"Twelfth Night" was once produced with the Elizabethan 
type of staging. Besides these, many one act plays and 
Gilbert and Sullivan works such as "Cox and Box", "H.M.S. 
Pinafore", and "The Pirates of Penzance" have been pre- 
sented. Usually it has been the practice to present the 
main School play in the spring, and a variety show, known 
as the Christmas Entertainment, in December. Up untU 


1938, this Christmas Entertainment was usually provided 
by selected New Boys, with one act plays by more ex- 
perienced actors occasionally added, but in 1939 the Second 
Years produced the whole show and that has been the 
practice ever since. 

Last year "Captain Applejack" was revived with great 
success. Consequently, under the leadership of Mr. Thomp- 
son, its director, the cast banded together to found an 
official dramatics club. The T.C.S. Dramatic Society was 
formed not only to foster a high standard of dramatics at 
the School, but to study various aspects of the theatre. 
Plays are read and written, and it is hoped that in the 
future the Society will be able to present some of its own 
compositions. Speakers are invited to speak to the Club 
about various branches of dramatics including lighting, 
sound effects, stage-craft and make-up as well as acting. 
Meetings are held once every fortnight in the Michaelmas 
and Lent terms. In short, not only does the Society put 
on plays but provides a chance for the boys to develop 
their interests and find out more about the many aspects 
of dramatics. The Club's membership is limited to twenty 
to make sure that only those really interested will be mem- 
bers, but acting is not restricted to its members only. For 
executive purposes there is a committee of five: President, 
Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and an additional 
committee member. The Club is run entirely by the boys, 
with the help of a master, chosen as adviser by the mem- 
bers themselves. The Society hopes to develop more in- 
terest in dramatics in the School, provide an outlet for the 
energies of those deeply interested, and to raise the stan- 
dard of plays produced at T.C.S. 

Of course, because of the lack of an auditorium in the 
present buildings, there are difficulties in staging. A 
canvas fit-up theatre, with the boxing ring as the stage, is 
used in the gymnasium. Unfortunately, although it pro- 
vides ample room backstage and permits a performance in 
the School, the acoustics are bad and it is possible to 


erect it for about two weeks only during the year without 
interfering with the proper use of the gym. The stage 
hands under Mr. Maier who have the arduous task of put- 
ting up the stage deserve due credit for their cheerful 
toil behind the scenes. Much of the success of the plays 
is due to the excellent work of Mr. Key's Art Classes who 
do the scene painting. Rehearsals usually begin in January 
and increase in tempo so that by the time the performance 
is a few weeks off, the boys spend nearly all their spare 
time preparing for the play. 

The Dramatic Society hopes to put on a full length 
play at Easter each year and in addition present a one 
act play at Christmas. The Club has taken over the or- 
ganization of the Christmas Entertainment, though the 
latter remains essentially a variety show voluntarily pre- 
sented by any group in the School. 

It is through their first experience with the stage at 
T.C.S., that many boys have come to enjoy amateur act- 
ing. Some, like Hugh Henderson, have gone on to greater 
distinction, but all have come to appreciate the enjoyment 
and recreation provided by this source of culture,

Primitive Man vs. Modem Man 

An extensive advertising campaign announced the 
third debate of the season. It was resolved, "That primi- 
tive man was happier than the man of to-day". 

The debate opened with a brief explanation of the 
resolution by the speaker, Mr. Hyde. The first speaker 
for the government, Wismer, made a ver}^ humorous speech 
which brought out the caveman's excellent health and 
fortitude. The first speaker for the opposition. Barton, in 
a more serious strain, delivered the most effective speech 
of the evening. He brought out the point that it was bet- 
ter to aim high and just to miss your goal, than to aim low 
and attain your low standard. He said that therefore 
modern man achieved greater satisfaction and truer hap- 
piness than did the primitive man, bringing in quotations 
from Browning and Aristotle to back up his argument. The 
second speaker for the government, Thompson iii, elabo- 
rated on and clarified the points brought out by Wismer, 
while Campbell ii, the second speaker for the opposition, 
further expanded Barton's argument, and added a pleasant 
touch of humour. 

Black i for the government, and Powell for the op- 
position summed up the arguments of their respective 
sides, and refuted several of their opponents' points. After 
a rebuttal by Wismer, the debate was opened to the house 
and some good speeches were made from the floor. The 
vote of the house was then taken; it was 48-31 in favour 
of the opposition. Mr. Snelgrove, speaking for the judges, 


gave many helpful suggestions to both sides, and announced 
that the unanimous decision of the judges was in favour of 
the opposition. 

Personality vs. Knowledge 

On Thursday night, February 13, the fourth debate of 
the season was held in the Hall. The motion, "Resolved 
the personality is of greater value to the individual than 
knowledge". Bruce opened the debate for the government, 
by giving us a general definition of personality, saying 
that it was really a means of seeing a person's character. 
He claimed that employers were more impressed by per- 
sonality than by simply knowledge, and gave illustrations 
to prove his point. Livingstone, the first speaker for the 
opposition, pointed out that a good personality is obtained 
onty from a good general knowledge, and cited one or two 
good examples. He closed by saying that personality was 
useful, but knowledge essential. 

Goering, the government's second speaker, further ex- 
panded Bruce's argument and brought out the point that a 
good personality makes recreation pleasure. The second 
speaker for the opposition, Sanborn, further entrenched the 
argument of the opposition by showing us that knowledge 
was absolutely essential in almost every vocation, while 
personality was of secondary importance. Dame, the last 
speaker for the government made the best speech of the 
debate, arguing that a good personality is essential for 
getting along with others, which is in itself far more im- 
portant than knowledge. His arguments were backed up 
by some well-chosen quotations. Pangman, the closing 
speaker for the opposition, effectively refuted some of the 
government's points, and then summed up the argument 
of the opposition. 

After a rebuttal by Bruce, the debate was opened to 
the house. Some good speeches were made from the floor, 
then the house moved in favour of the government. Mr. 


Dale, speaking for the judges, criticized the debaters for 
a lack of good points, but commended their delivery. 
Finally, he announced that the judges had moved in favour 
of the opposition. 

Are Exammations a Fair Test of Ability? 

On Tuesday, March 4, a debate was held in the Hail. 
The attendance was small, no doubt due to the fact that 
everybody was studying hard for exams. This seems 
somewhat ironical when one considers the subject: "Re- 
solved that examinations are an unfair test of the pupil's 
ability" ; but the boys no doubt knew that the future policy 
of the School would not be governed by the outcome of 
the debate. 

Mr. Wells, the honourable member from Oakville, 
opened the debate as first speaker for the government. He 
pointed out that tests are unfair to those who play games 
and sometimes miss their chances to study for them. Mr. 
Hyde countered for the opposition proving from statistics 
that those who do well in their exams get better jobs than 
those who fail. 

Mr. Fennel spoke next on the unfairness of examina- 
tions in which pupils get so excited they cannot think. The 
second speaker for the opposition Mr. French enlarged on 
the points of his colleague and brought in several new 
ones of his own. 

The last speaker for the government, Mr. Brewer, 
referred to the irregularities in the marking of papers 
such as English and history. Mr. Lawson now spoke and 
made several points even if his similes were a trifle obscure. 
Mr. Wells made his rebuttal and ended the formal part of 
the debate. 

The vote of the House was taken after several short 
speeches from the floor and resulted in a 26 to 16 victory 
for the opposition. 


The judges gave their decision in favour of the govern- 
ment and gave several helpful suggestions to the speakers. 
The debate was interesting and many good ideas were 
brought forward but it lacked anything outstanding and 
a good deal too much time was directed to small, insigni- 
ficant details. 




And it came to pass that in those days there were two 
houses, even the house of Bethunus Superbus and the 
house of Brentus Ridiculus, and the greatest of these was 
the house of Bethunus Superbus. And the leaders of the 
house of Bethunus Superbus were William of Bermuda and 
John Americanus, yea verily and Janus Magnus, even un- 
to Nevillus Prefectus, and the leaders of the house of 
Brentus Ridiculus were Harrius Humblus, sumamed 
Honestus, and Rufus of Confusia. 

And when the leaders of the house of Bethunus Super- 
bus had come to themselves, they spake one to another, 
saymg, "Who is it who can tell us how great we are? Or 
who it is who can show unto us the magnitude of our glory? 
Let us arise, therefore, and go unto the leaders of the 
house of Brentus Ridiculus, even unto Harrius Humblus 
and unto Rufus of Confusia; let us, therefore, arise and go 
unto these same and let us say unto them, 'Dahh, (which 
is to say, being interpreted, 'O ignorant ones') when will 
ye understand? These many years have ye sought to con- 
tend against that which is decreed invincible. Verily, 


verily say we unto you, it is hard for ye to kick against 
Kox'." They said, therefore, "Let us go even unto the 
house of Brentus Ridiculus". 

And they arose, and girded their loins, and took their 
gas-masks in their hands, and went forth, and lowered 
themselves, and entered into the house of Brentus Ridi- 
culus, and came unto the room which is numbered five 
score and one, even unto the abode of Humblus. And 
when they had knocked, they entered, and found therein 
he of Confusia lying on a bed, yea even that Rufus of 
whom it is said, "He shall not toil nor travail, neither shall 
he do any manner of work, but shall ever proclaim with a 
loud voice unto such as will hear him how much he hath 
to do". 

And they stood by the bed, and with one accord spake 
unto him that lay upon the bed, saying unto him. "Where- 
fore liest thou here, O ignorant one? Dost thou not know 
that there are trophies without number to be won in battle 
from the house of Bethunus Superbus, even that house 
which hath held title to these trophies since time im- 
memorial?" And he that lay upon the bed said, "Rowdy 

Then spake they unto him again, saying, "Dost thou 
not recall how in number of trophies thou has been con- 
tinually beaten by those of the house of Bethunus Super- 
bus?" And again he said unto them, "Rowdy Dow". 

Then spake they unto him yet again, saying unto him, 
"Bethink thyself of past years, thou of Confusia, how that 
thy best bowlers have striven in vain; do thou but re- 
member how that he of Bermuda did raise his bat, yea, 
verily, his bat of oiled willow, and did mightily smite the 
ball therewith; and indeed was it also well smitten, that 
it did rapidly ascend to so great height that thou wist not 
whither it went. Do thou but recall how that this same. 
who of late so mightily smote, did again bowl unto thy 
batsmen in such manner as they could neither withstand 
nor resist, but that they fell prey to the skill of such of the 


team of the house of Bethunus Superbus as were scattered 
aroimd. Bethink thee, thou who in football didst lay 
hands on the ball, and didst seek to make thy way through 
the assembled multitude of the team of this same house, 
bethink thee how that thou wast with both force and 
violence brought down, yea even to the ground, to the feet 
of those whom thou hadst thought to beat. Do thou but 
remember how thou wast against thine own will preci- 
pitated in such manner against the boards of the rink that 
thou wouldst fain have continued on thy way through the 
boards, but that they were securely fastened in view that 
thou shouldst suffer accordingly". 

Even thus spake they as they stood before the bed, in 
the abode of Humblus. And he that lay upon the bed 
spake yet a third time, saying unto them that stood near, 
"Rowdy Dow". 

Then said they among themselves, therefore, "It is to 
no avail." And when they had looked on him, they went 
out from the room, and departed from him, and journeyed 
forth, and came again unto their own house, both William 
of Bermuda, and John Americanus, yea and even also 
Janus Magnus and Nevillus Prefectus, and they entered 
again into the house of Bethunus Superbus. 

And behold, even as they entered in, came there unto 
them a great multitude of new boys, and they stood before 
them, neither spake they a word unto them, but stood be- 
fore them in silence. And suddenly there broke forth as 
it were a rushing, mighty blast of hot air; and the multi- 
tude of the new boys was staggered by the blast, from the 
greatest of them even also unto the least. Therefore ran 
they away in every direction, yea to the East and to the 
South, and yea to the North also ran they, and to the West, 
and did that which it was bidden unto them to do. And the 
leaders of the house of Bethunus Superbus made their way 
each unto his abode, and they entered therein, each to his 
own chamber, and studied further how they should proceed 
in the matter. — R- d. Butterfieid, via. 



(Some light was shed upon the mystery surrounding 
the recent disappearance of the Globe and Mail thought- 
recording machine, when a sheet of paper with the follow- 
ing words printed on it, was found crumpled up on the 
bottom of a disused bath in Bethune House.) 

"Well, here's the gym comp. this year. Boy, look at 
the crowd all over the place and up in the gallery. I'll bet 
they all came, just to see me do my stuff. It's about time 
they realized how good I am. There goes Jarvis. Listen 
to those guys in the gallery clap for him. They think he's 
good just because he has all that muscle on him. (Snort) 
Wait till the crowd sees me; they don't know I took a 
Charles Atlas course! Well I'll be hanged, some of those 
other guys in Brent like McDowell and Thompson aren't 
bad at this either. Gee, look at Peanut Panet. Even the 
little guys are good in Brent House. But they've seen 
nothing yet. Ah, now it's my turn, I'll show 'em. Oops! 
Missed that upstart. Oh well, I'll just give the judges a 
bright smile and that'll do the trick. 

"Well I'll be darned! Hyde clapped for me anyway. 
A fine fellow, Harry. None better! Those guys in Brent 
aren't such bad fellows, come to think of it. Why is it that 
all the good guys go there, anyway. Aw heck, (Moan) 
Jarvis hasn't missed an exercise yet. Darn it all. Brent 
never does! What chance have we got against them. 
(Snarl, snarl). How can those guys in Brent be so solid. 
In boxing you get worn out just hitting them and you 
haven't a chance against fellows like Gaunt. (Groan). 
They're pretty rugged in hockey too. They've got those 
dam dynamite defence twins, Fullerton and Wood. They 
shouldn't let fellows like them live in Brent House, it gives 
them too much of an advantage over us. (Groan). But 
boy, are some of those guys dumb. They get penalties just 
because they don't know how to get away with them with- 
out being caught. I could teach 'em a thing or two in that 


line (Yak, yak). Thank goodness, the comp. is over at 
last. Now to go back to my room to rest (study, that is)." 

"Gee, I'm glad the gym. is all over. So what if they 
did win it? We made it a close race didn't we? They only 
beat us by a measly 1070 points. The only reason those 
clueless joes won was because they smiled better at the 
judges. (Snarl, snarl). Oh to heck with this study, I don't 
feel like working after the gym. Of course, come to think 
of it, I never do, because it's so stuffy in my room. Oh 
gee, I forgot. We've got a Geometry test to-morrow 
(Moan). I'll have to get into the hospital to-morrow by 
putting the thermometer on the radiator again. 

"Gosh, I wonder what I'll get that dadratted fag of 
mine to do to-morrow. He's useless. He always does 
just what he's told to, darn it all; he's in Brent. Oh why 
will be never make a mistake? All those dopes in Brent 
are like that, you can't find a fault with them. I can't 
even have the pleasure of giving my own fag a good bawl- 
ing out. (Snarl, snarl). But I fixed him to-day, and he 
hasn't a chance. I gave him enough work to keep him 
going for a week, and it's to be done by to-morrow. (Snarl) . 
That'll get him. (Snarl, snarl). 

"Oh boy, there goes the bell at last. I guess I'll just 
wander over to the Common Room. Why do they have to 
have it over in Brent House? I don't like the long walk 
and besides I hate the fresh air over there. I'm not used 
to it. There's C.S.'s office. Why the heck does he have 
to be so accurate. It isn't fair. It gives the Brent boys 
an unfair advantage. Besides he gave me a rotten mark 
in Algebra so I'll get even with him. (Snarl, snarl). I'll 
ask him to solve a really tough problem ; I've got it all pick- 
ed out. There! Well, by golly, he solved it in a couple of 
minutes! What can you do about a man like that? (Moan). 

"Oh boy, there's a nice crowd down by that notice 
board, and there's Rufus in it. He gave me a terrific body 



check in that house game and boy, do those guys give hard 
checks. ]'ll get back at him now even if it was a good clean 
check, (Snarl, snarl). Oops. Got my elbow in his teeth. 
Oh well, he has too much spirit anyway. (Yak, yak, yak). 

"Is that a fog-horn I heard down the hall? It must 
have been Nelson (Eddy) Stewart. Thinks he's a band- 
leader does he. The only band he knows anything about is 
the one he uses to shoot pellets in class. (Snarl). And 
who's that down the hall? Oh, I see. He was quite a 
Payne in the neck when I boxed him. (Yak, yak, yak). 
Oh golly, here comes my fag. He's done the work I set 
him. My gosh, this Brent efficiency is appalling. 

"Gee, this room sounds quiet. I'll just take a peek in- 
side. Well I'll be darned! (Moan). Prentice (?) and Wil- 
liamson are studying! Now I've seen everything. Don't 
they know study is a time set aside for fooling? That's 
the trouble with these guys over here. They always do 
everything too thoroughly, even their work. It doesn't 
give us a square deal. People like that gripe me. (Snarl) 
Oops, who's that at the door? 

"What am I doing around in Brent, sir? ... . Study, 
sir ?!?... . Eight quarters, sir ! ? ! . . . yes . . . yes,

The old house stood on the famous White Cliff of 
Nova Scotia, in a lovely countryside, with purple moun- 
taihs rising in the distance and on one side, the sea. It 
is the sea I remember best; the way its colour changed, 
seeming to match my moods, from green to grey and then 
to azure blue. During the days when the sun was shining 
and everything was going well for me, the sea was most 
beautiful. It appeared to dance in the sun, perhaps happy 
that God had thought fit to show that he could make the 
world a joyous place. On these days of splendour I would 
stand on the white sand for many an hour, feeling the 
fresh sea air with its salty tang as it blew towards the land 
and murmured in the high grass of the cliff top, watching 
the ocean with the sun sparkling on the small wave tops. 
On other days, when life did not run so happily for me, a 
storm would rage in answer to my mood. While others 
huddled around the fires inside their houses, I would stand 
on the cliff top and watch the great grey rollers thunder 
to the shore; the crests would look like fleecy wool when 
far away, yet how powerfully they smashed upon the 
land. How grim, foreboding and different the ocean now 
seemed when compared to the days the sun had shone. I 
would turn about, after a while, and return to the house, 
bent forward against the wind. 


My room was in an attic turret on one side of the 
building, and every moment of the day and night I could 
hear the incessant murmur of the sea. I knew the sounds 
so well that when I awoke in the morning I could feel the 
mood it was in and I knew the colour it would be. The 
sea possessed a great power over me; its strength was so 
great that even in my sleep I dreamt of the waves and the 
ocean wind. Often, during the day, I roamed the sandy 
shore with a feeling that I was searching for something 
of which I knew nothing but of which I sensed much. The 
ocean seemed to whisper ceaselessly in my ear; I knew it 
murmured a message because of my close affinity to it. In 
the never-ending roar of the breakers I seemed to hear a 
deep voice speaking to me. It asked if I thought my life 
on earth was worth living; what can one man hope to do? 
But perhaps it was only my imagination that led me to 
believe that I heard this. The symphony of wind and 
wave had perhaps suggested words to my wondering mind. 
I knew then that what I sought for was a happiness and 
peace of mind that I was unable to find in the turmoil of 
the world. I thought of the sea — so vast and powerful, 
yet serene in omnipotence. Then I thought of the voice I 
had heard while wandering along the shore. Was it an 
invitation to give my soul to the ocean and live in security 
in the sea? A strange thought, but one that to me was 
bright with the hope of a new life. Here, among mortals, 
my existence was drab and monotonous; only when I was 
near the sea was I happy. Perhaps to be a part of the 
sea was my destiny and the only way my spirit would be 
free. I write these words in my room in the turret and I 
hear the sound of the waves — I know the ocean is blue and 
happy and I must join it. God, care for my family and 

bless them all.

News Item 

Halifax, N.S. (C.P.) — The body of an unidentified man 
was recovered from the ocean near White Cliff, Nova 


Scotia, by the crew of the fishing boat Spirit of the Sea. 
It is presumed death occurred from accidental drowning 
and no inquest will be held. 

— R. Brinckman, Form IVA. 


He strode among the shadows ending 

Only at the sky, 
Whose silent waves relaxed, extending 

To the stars on high. 

He walked the streets that curl and twist 
Through fog and smoky breath; 

Through and through the streets of mist - 
The way from life to death! 

Past a tavern, past a fountain - - - 

Discordant notes of life 
In the shadow of a mountain 

Of fear and inner strife. 

Past the sounds of life that shiver 

On a floor of glass; 
Past these sounds and to a river 

But this he did not pass. 

"O rolling torrent, flowing river, 

I give to thee my all; 
With but one arrow from thy quiver, 

Let all my sorrow fall. 

"For life is but a fleeting flash 
Upon the screen of heaven; 

Coloured only by the lash, 
And by the vices seven." 



And saying this he turned and leapt, 

The waters closed around; 
A silent watch the river kept; 

He sank without a sound.

The long, uneven procession dwindled to a halt. The 
chapel, filled and quiet, waited. In a moment the organ 
broke from a prelude into the strains of Alleluia and drew 
the congregation to its feet. Soon the chapel resounded 
as the voices of a multitude were raised in unison to praise 
God on this Armistice Day. After the hymn the minister 
decreed a two minute silence to remember and honour 
those who gave their lives for the cause of freedom. The 
chapel was hushed, charged with thought. 

* * * * * 

Many years ago a revolution occurred. Unlike its 
predecessors however, this revolution, although bom in 
one country was to affect the world. It was not a happen- 
ing of chance, yet its beginnings were unlooked for, and 
while its origins were in England, it was not long after 
that it spread to Europe and America. The Industrial 
Revolution was to change civilization. 

It spread quickly at first. Factories and machines 
were soon conunon words. Smoke-stacks and chimneys 
became increasingly evident, cities sprang into being over- 
night. What used to be a village became a metropolis, 
what used to be a tannery became an industrial monument. 
The sailor who used to climb the rigging of a schooner was 
set to work shovelling coal into the fires of an ocean 
steamer. The cobbler and blacksmith were employed by 
factories to turn out domestic goods. Changes were every- 
where evident as economic progress discarded old produc- 
tion methods and turned to the new way of life. The 


chimneys and smoke-stacks of industry heralded the ad- 
vent of a new epoch in time. 

Yet with this economic progress what was the pro- 
gress of man? Had he changed for the better? Had the 
people of the world learned their lesson? For a few de- 
cades it looked as though they had. The field of battle 
was forgotten in the new cause of industrialization. But 
suddenly came another answer to the question. In 1899 a 
bloody purge was witnessed by the country which had 
gained the greatest mechanized superiority. Within a few 
months one of the worst slaughters in history obliterated 
all marks of progress. This, however, was only the be- 
ginning. Fourteen years later the world witnessed the 
commencement of the greatest wars since the beginning of 
time. The chaos and strife, death and destruction put any 
social advancement back a century. On fields of battle 
where thousands once died, millions were slain. Where 
war had meant armies it now meant nations. A war of 
mechanization was a total war. The Revolution which had 
brought progress in one field, brought destruction in an- 
other. Was this the price of economic advancement? Or 
was mechanization able to overcome social defects and help 
build from the ashes of war the foundations of peace? 
Could it help to build a society of love and peace, a Utopia? 
The answer lay in men's hearts, in their minds, in their 
souls. Here lay the answer to progress, true progress. 
For in the words of Lincoln "True progress comes from the

The minister announced that the recessional hymn 
would be sung and the congregation rose. The organ 
began to break into "I vow to thee my country" and once 
again the chapel resounded with the sound of many voices. 
Slowly the choir moved down the aisle. The hymn was 
almost over yet the last words rang in my ears. "And 
her ways are ways of gentleness and all her paths are 


The choir was out of the chapel. The minister said 
a few sentences and then the service came to a conclusion. 
Once again the chapel was hushed and quiet.

The moon stared down with that same baleful look 

As he had worn for ages past, the moon 

That had made the waters of the Nile to shine 

In days of her renown, and yet had seen 

Empires falling, and pearls of gaiety 

Turn black with hate and dry and crack and gape 

To swallow up the fools they once had served. 

And he had seen the king upon the hilltop, 

The serf at meagre harvest in the field. 

And in both had wrought a pattern of magic dreams. 

Yet from each had he taken, in exchange. 

His tithe of longing thought and wondering eyes, 

Now as his long grey fingers touched the snow, 

And bathed the roof-tops clean, in dead of night, 

He flung a challenge at the foot of man — 

To show him something perfect on the earth; 

And his rays played a symphony of light 

Upon the dark that frowned beneath the eaves. 

Then through the shadowed stilhiess of the moon-mist 

The sleigh-bell music of the winter came, 

And the music was a million smiling jewels 

That sparkled in the pools of snowy silence. 

And then were gone — but now the moon had fled. 

This was man's answer, for here was perfection. 

And in the gloom the lonely stree-lamps shone, 

Like lost souls weeping tears of golden sand.

The fire was burning low. A very old man sat be- 
fore it in a large easy-chair. The flickering orange light 
played over his wrinkled features. At his feet lay a large, 
black dog who slept with his head buried in his paws. The 
old man was thinking — his thoughts travelled back over 
the space of many years. 

He was thinking of his youth in England at the tiny 
country village where he, John Merton, had been born. He 
remembered how, at the age of twenty, he had come to 
America to try and make his fortune. And he had made 
it. Finding himself clever with money he started a broker- 
age office. By the time he was fifty years old he was the 
richest man in America, head of John Merton and Co., 
financiers. Then had come the crash of '29. 

Almost bankrupt, and broken in spirit, he retired. 
Then his son, also a financial wizard, had taken command 
of the company and brought it back to power. He thought 
how proud he was of his only child, the very famous 
Charles Merton. And now — now he knew he was dying. 
His eyes closed and once more his mind wandered. He 
seemed to be standing on top of a high mountain, looking 
down to a lovely valley. All around him were tall pines 
filling the air with a pleasant fragrance. Below, a blue 
river wound its way through the land. He felt very peace- 
ful — what a beautiful country, he thought. He turned, 
and coming toward him he saw his son. A pang of fear 
stabbed his heart — how is he here? For he understood 
where he was. It is all right, something inside him said, 
all is well .... 

The old man did not awaken from his sleep. The spring 
air bore unheard into the room the cries of a newsboy. 

"Read all about it! Big Wall Street crash! Merton 
and Co. bankrupt! Charles Merton suicides!" 

— R. Brinckman, Form IVA. 



With sword and musket enters he in strife 

With killing dagger; 
With dart and arrow, and with thirsty knife: 

The dying stagger. 

With lust he kills, and by the number killed 

He deems his power; 
And in his turn his savage heart is stilled 

When comes his hour. 

He took the lives of others while he was: 

Now he is slain. 
In vain his women weep for him, because 

He cannot come again. 

He had the power to take man's greatest gift, 

Or let man live; 
Man's vengeful hand to kill is ever swift, 

But life man cannot give.

Consider the many millions of inventions that make 
our life what it is to-day in this age of scientific wonders. 
Yet the basis of the great advance of our scientific civiliza- 
tion was laid by an unknown genius who lived thousands 
of years ago. Though modem science owed everything to 
him, his name is found neither in our history books nor in 
museums, nor is the exact period in which he lived known. 
His invention has had a profound influence down through 
the ages, for without it the machine age could not have 
arrived, and yet it is so commonplace that we do not 
usually think of it as the greatest invention. It is the 


The most familiar type of wheel is of course that used 
in every type of vehicle, but the wheel also forms an 
essential part of nearly every kind of mechanism or 
machinery. Defined, a wheel is essentially a ring attach- 
ed to an axle around which it revolves. Almost since time 
immemorial it has been used in vehicles to avoid friction 
with the ground, because of its ability to be in motion con- 
tinuously. Its invention, lost in antiquity, was probably 
made in several different civilizations at the same time. 
The Egyptians and Assyrians are the first on record to 
have chariots and we use wheels for the same basic reason 
to-day, on trains, cars, and other forms of overland trans- 
portation. But equally important, if not more so, is the 
use of the wheel on its axis as an important form of mec- 
hanical power. In almost every machine we find that some 
sort of wheel is used. Gears, for instance, are nothing 
more than wheels with teeth in them. Pulleys, with tre- 
mendous leverage, are likewise basically wheels. There- 
fore without the wheel, which is the basic unit, few of to- 
day's machines could have been invented. 

But it is these machines that form the basis of modem 
life. Thus the influence of the wheel on life to-day is 
tremendous. Hardly anything has been left untouched. Not 
only is the wheel still the basic unit of land transportation, 
but engines using some form of wheel within, also power 
sea and air travel to-day. Our dwelling places to-day are 
constructed and erected by machinery. They even incor- 
porate a form of wheel known as the door-handle. Clothes 
are produced in factories employing massive machines 
which consist of wheels. The production of food is affect- 
ed also, for to-day a great deal of agricultural machinery 
is used to grow the food, and then some sort of wheel is 
used to process it, as for instance, in the mills. Just as 
it has led to improvements in providing the necessities of 
life, the wheel has helped the advance of culture. What 
has done more for education, and religion, than the advent 
of printing? Yet printing presses are no more then large 


drums. Not one phase of life remains uninfluenced by the 
wheel. Even in the leisurely sport of fishing, reels are 
used. To-day what does not incorporate a wheel, is usually 
produced by a machine using them. Modern life depends 
on machinery, and machinery depends on the wheel. There- 
fore the greatest invention, though one of the simplest, is 
the wheel.

Dear Sir: 

Deep interest in our immigration policy has led me to 
write you this letter. 

Canada lately has been making grown up nation 
noises. This is a fine and splendid policy but it presup- 
poses that Canada is an adult nation and Canada has not 
yet reached maturity. Huge tracts of land and tremen- 
dous resources do not make a great power; it is inhabited 
land and developed resources which help form a world 
power. Our leaders have apparently not realized this basic 

They occasionally come forth with some innocuous 
statement on immigration and shift over another commit- 
tee to review the subject. They are afraid that immigra- 
tion will offend the French-Canadians or the farmers or 
the unions or any other block which their fevered imagina- 
tions can conjure up. 

The sight of an underpopulated land mass between 
the two greatest nations on earth does not disturb them 
but the thought of the French vote leaves them sleepless 
for nights. They are fearful of having a few foreigners 
pollute our shores but they do not mind our best brains 
fleeing to the States. 

One of the reasons given for having no immigration" 
is that we have no houses for immigrants; but one of the 


reasons given for the lack of housing is the shortage of 
labour. And so the idiotic circle of cause and effect con- 
tinues its useless, undisturbed path. 

Whenever the question of immigration arises, the 
government mutters that the time is not opportune, ap- 
parently in the hope that when this mystical undefined 
"opportune" time arrives they will not be there to deal 
with it. What is the situation at present, though? Mil- 
lions of intelligent Europeans, uprooted by war and still 
living under semi-starvation conditions, are more than 
willing to start life afresh in a new, peaceful land. These 
people are not the usual undesirable types who, being 
failures in their own lands, think that they will be success- 
ful in a new country. They are first class citizen ma- 

What does Canada do with this golden opportunity 
before her? She sits twiddling her collective thumbs, 
yawning over immigration and snarling about trivial tax 

I hope that you will give this matter your earnest 

Yours truly, 

D. W. Fulford, Form VA.

Allowing that the prefect-on-doors is the most alert 

(Because Mr. Scott has been known before this and on 
slighter pretexts to have had people up for slander,) 

We shall amble up to the dining-hall a bit early this 
morning with the former, and by looking through his ear 
at the little ticker tape inside, 

(I know there is one there because I am more or less 
intimate with such as Campbell i and Hyde) , 

We shall see his impression 

Of the world's most heart-rending procession: 

There are three general classifications into which the 
participants of the Mummy's March fall: 

Those who got to bed late last night, those who woke 
up early this morning, and those who haven't woken up at 

If one was to believe the story told by those in 

The first of these classifications contains by far the 


But the little ticker-tape says definitely that those 
showing signs of hard wear are relatively few, and they 
all seem to come from bottom flat, 

At that. 

Now, the Masters hold that the second group is so 
small as to be a triviality, 

But I know, and you know, and the little ticker-tape 
agrees that for one reason or another, (mostly for one 
reason), this group represents a near totality. 

It has been found by scientific observation 

That this group has one predominant inclination: 

Dr. Brewer 

States that it generally appears from the classroom 
block, bearing study books, just before the "twoer". 

Those falling into classification number three 

Produce a rather odd effect on the little ticker-tape, 
and are by far the saddest to see. 

Here is man at his lowest; bloated, bleary-eyed and 
blue, limp, without starch; 

This is the only real Mummy's March. 

The little ticker-tape misses a tick or two, slows down 
and falls into a dogged plodding of clacks; 

The words become meaningless, the letters fuzzy as 
one watches the Mummies come up the steps, bear to the 
right and roll through the door like an endless procession 
of burlap sacks. 

The bell peals wickedly and the little ticker-tape gives 
a start, 

(It has only been hypnotized by the contagious dull- 
ness of the march, not touched with pity, because it has 
no heart), 

And begins ticking madly, as though to make up for 
lost time, and closes those awful gates, 

And continues ticking jubilantly because now it will 
be able to give some lates. 

Once more the doors open and the shattered remnants 
of a few human souls pass through in single file. 


And move up the aisle. 

Last comes the prefect-on-doors, and striding in with 
the firmest step that he is able, 

Makes his way past the line of Mummies to the Head 

Last, did I say? But no; advancing right in his wake 
is something that a pair of legs propels! 


— R. D. Butterfield, Form VIA. 


I eased my head against the cushioned rest, letting 
my eyes run over the simple dash-board of my new jet 
racing car. Oil pressure, fuel mixture, everything check- 
ed perfectly. I then signalled the starter, I was ready. 
Licking my lips nervously I relaxed and waited for the 
start of the race. The one minute flag was up. The 
seconds ticked by. The cars were off in a roar equalled 
only by that of the crowd. I realized, suddenly, that my 
life depended on a small amount of rubber and metal 
weighing less than half a ton. The speed thrilled me. The 
car was about maximum speed as the first lap whipped by. 
Three cars, mine among them, rounded the first turn. 
Above the deafening roar I heard a screech. A piston had 
misfired. One of my opponents crashed to block the 
speedway and the chances of the remaining cars. The last 
turn loomed up, and sweat broke out on by brow as I 
tried to manoeuvre into position on the inside run. The 
other driver had the same idea. He cut across my path. 
An earsplitting crash followed. I lost my senses and slip- 
ped into an eerie oblivion. 

A voice spoke from a great distance: "Too bad, Mr. 
Dextrall, you didn't quite qualify. Hot down here, isn't

SCHOOL vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, February 6: Lost 7-5 

In their fifth game of the year, a return game with 
U.T.S. on our home ice, the first team again came out on 
the short end of the score. 

At the start of the first period our first line were able 
to keep the puck in the U.T.S. end and at 2.15 Wells scored 
on a pass from Taylor i to give us a 1-0 lead. U.T.S. came 
back fighting hard to try to even up the score, and until 
the seven minute mark when Howard of U.T.S. got a 
penalty, they kept, up tied up in our own zone. With eleven 
minutes of the period gone we took a 2-0 lead when a 
Payne from Campbell and Lawson combination clicked. 
At 13.40, while we were a man short. Fuller from Vernon 
gave U.T.S. their first goal. Fifty seconds later McClel- 
land scored from Sinclair to tie the score up at two all. 
The play settled down for the rest of the period with 
neither side having an advantage and the score remained 

For the first six minutes of the second period, U.T.S. 
swamped our defense and it was only through the efforts 
of Fennell in goal for us that they did not score. Finally 
the team, with Taylor setting the pace, got organized and 
the play became fairly even. There was no scoring until

two-thirds of the way through the period, when U.T.S. 
took a 3-2 lead with Sinclair scoring on a pass from Bark. 
Five minutes later McDonough from Wells and Taylor 
again tied the score. The period ended with the score still 
three all. 

Starting the third period, U.T.S. took an early lead 
when Avery from Armstrong fired the puck past Fennell 
at 2.30. T.C.S. then took the initiative and did everything 
but score for the next four minutes. Finally their efforts 
were rewarded when Wood scored unassisted at 6.53. At 
the eight minute mark while we were one man short, 
Avery on a pass from Dall fired a very hard shot at Fen- 
nell, who stopped it beautifully, but he was unable to clear 
the rebound while lying sprawled on the ice, and Arm- 
strong flicked it over him to give U.T.S. a 5-4 lead. At 
17.30, Sinclair scored again for U.T.S., assisted by Bark. 
At 18.01 Sinclair, taking the puck from Lang this time, 
scored his third goal to give U.T.S. a 7-4 lead. At 19.05 
Newcomb scored from Lawson to give us our fifth goal. 
The game then ended to give U.T.S. a 7-5 win. 

Bark, Sinclair and Lang were best for the victors, 
while Fennell in our nets was outstanding, and Taylor was 
best of the forwards. 

T.C.S.— Fenell, Taylor i, Wells, McDonough, Hyde, Wood i, 
Payne, Campbbell i, Lawson i, Fullerton, Bruce, Ensinck, Good- 
body, Newcomb. 

U.T.S. — Mitchel, Bark, McClelland, Sinclair, Avery, Armstrong, 
DaJl, Lang, Fuller, Howard, Fox, Vernon, Arrow-Smith, Taylor. 


At Lakefield, February 8: Tied 4-4 

In an exhibition game at Lakefield the School was held 
to a tie by a powerful Grove team that came from behind 
four times to tie the score. Play in the early part of the 
first period was fast and furious, both teams striving for 
some advantage. Finally, after six minutes of play, Tay- 


lor passed to Wells, who was in the clear, and was able to 
beat Wessell. For the remainder of the period play see- 
sawed from one end to the other but clever playing by both 
goalies prevented further scoring. 

In the second period the Grove drove off several T.C.S. 
rushes before driving the puck to the Trinity end where 
Reeve beat Goodbody in the School nets. A strong at- 
tack by the School was partially stopped at the Grove de- 
fence, but Fullerton took a long shot from the blue line, 
which put Trinity in the lead again. For several minutes 
the play was quite slow, then Sinclair scored on a shot 
from close in to tie up the score once more. T.C.S. now 
fought with renewed vigour and shortly before the end of 
the period McDonough scored after Wells had lured the 
goalie to one side. It was at this point that Gibaut, the 
Grove captain, was hit by a flying puck and was forced to 
leave the ice. The period ended with Trinity leading 3-2. 

In the opening minutes of the third period Reeve 
scored for Lakefield to tie the score once more, but thirty 
seconds later Wells scored on a pass from McDonough. 
Both teams tried unsuccessfully to score for several 
minutes and it was not until the closing minutes that Sin- 
chair scored again to make the teams even. 

An overtime period of five minutes opened with the 
School trying desperately to score and had it no been for 
the splendid playing of Wessel would have succeeded 
several times. Through nearly all of this extra period 
T.C.S. kept the puck in the Grove zone and attacked at all 
times, hardly ever being called upon to defend their own 

Wells and McDonough were undoubtedly the best Tri- 
nity attackers on the ice while Fullerton played a splendid 
defensive game. For Lakefield Reeve and Sinclair with 
two goals each played well while Gibson drove off several 
dangerous Trinity rushes. 


T.C.S. -Goodbody (goal), Wood i, Hyde, Taylor i, Wells, Mc- 
Donough, Bruce, Fullerton, Campbell i, Payne, Lawson i, Ensinck, 

Lakefield — Wessell (goal), Gibson, Gibaut, Reeve, Sinclair, Ket- 
chura, Sharo, Russell, Milner, Jones, Huddart. 

At Newmarket, February 12: Won 9-3 
TTie School played their return game with Pickering 
and emerged the victors from this rather rough game by 
a score of 9-3. 

Both teams seemed very evenly matched in the first 
period and the spectators saw some fast hockey. Payne 
opened the scoring when he gave the School their first goal 
in the early seconds of play, assisted by Campbell. This 
was followed by another T.C.S. goal, this time scored by 
Campbell imassisted. After a short interval, Pickering re- 
taliated with two quick goals, scored by Addison, and 
Robertson, and the first period score was left 2-2. 

The second period was scoreless, but saw both teams 
going all out, and the School began to show a slight edge 
over the Pickering squad. In the third period, the T.C.S. 
first team really broke loose. McDonough opened the 
period, scoring a goal on a pass from Wells. This was fol- 
lowed by another fired by Campbell assisted by Hyde. Mc- 
Donough then scored his second goal, Wells again getting 
tlie assist. Ensinck then scored a goal unassisted, and 
this was followed by a goal which Payne scored unassisted. 
Wells then fired in the School's eighth goal, from Mc- 
Donough. At this point Pickering came back momentarily 
when Addison scored his second goal, Maguire getting the 
assist. The final score of the game came a few minutes 
before full time when McDonough scored a quick goal 
assisted by Lawson. Thus the School left the ice on the 
long end of a 9-3 score — having made up for their previous 
defeat at the hands of the Pickering squad. 


Pickering's standout was their captain, Addison; every 
man on the School team turned in a first class performance 
but special mention should be made of Hyde who played 
an outstanding game despite a serious kidney injury. 

T.C.S. — Fennell, Fullerton, Wood, Hyde, Bruce, Taylor, Wells, 
McDonough, Payne, Lawson, Campbell, Ensinck, Newcomb. 

Pickering — Sifton, Rogers, Maguire, Addison, I. Wilson, Avery, 
Robertson, O'Neill, Mitchell, Hutcheson, Farrel, Widdrington, B. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Oshawa, February 14: Won 7-3 

The School won their second game in a row in the 
league by defeating S.A.C. 7-3 in a fast, and exciting con- 
test. In the first period the play was kept mainly in the 
S.A.C. end with no score till half way through the period 
when Payne of T.C.S. tallied on a pass from Ensinck. The 
School continued the pressure as Wells scored on a pass 
from Newcomb and Wood on a pass from Payne. In the 
dying moments of the period McDonough scored, assisted 
by Wells and Wood, making the score 4-0 at the end of the 
first period. 

In the second period S.A.C. came back with two goals 
while the School were unable to counter. The Saints 
dominated the play for the main part of the period and 
Boothe scored on a pass from Chipman. Shortly after 
this Chipman scored for S.A.C. on a major penalty shot, 
as one of the T.C.S. players held the puck in the crease. 

The third period saw more action on the part of the 
School as T.C.S. outscored S.A.C. 3-1 in this period. Chip- 
man of S.A.C. was given an interference penalty and the 
School scored as Fullerton shot the puck into the Saints' 
net after a solo rush. Very soon after Wells made a long 
rush and passed the puck to McDonough who slid the puck 
into the net. S.A.C. then tallied as Chipman scored on a 
pass from Nold. Before the end of the game Fullerton 


scored again on a pass from Payne making the final score 

FuUerton and Wells were the standouts for the School 
with McDonough playing well also. For S.A.C. Chipman. 
Nold and Boothe were the best.

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Aurora, February 19: Won 10-5 

In a fast, hard-checking game at Aurora T.C.S. gained 
their third consecutive league victory. In the first period 
play was brilliant for the early minutes as both teams 
strove for the first counter. After eight minutes of play 
Bruce found the top comer on a long shot to give Trinity 
the lead. Less than twenty seconds later Fullerton stick- 
handJed his way through the Saints' team to give the 
School a two goal lead. For a short time play slowed up 
and then S.A.C. started to roll. Errington was able to 
beat Fennell on a pass from Nold and two minutes later 
Chipman scored to tie up the game. Trinity now attacked 
superbly, and with a perfect combination play, McDonough 
scored to give T.C.S. a 3-2 lead at the end of the period. 

Play in the second period was slightly slower but it 
was still a hard-checking affair. On another well-executed 
play McDonough scored again from Wood and Taylor to 
increase the Trinity lead. S.A.C. fought back savagely 
but were unable to withstand the terrific Trinity rushes 
which resulted in a goal by Wells from Fullerton. Play 
now became a little ragged and it was not until Errington 
scored that T.C.S. got going again. With less than five 
minutes of the period remaining Fullerton scored another 
unassisted goal followed soon after by another by Wells 
on passes from Taylor and McDonough. This was again 


an excellent pass combination which seemed to have the 
College defence completely baffled. For the remainder of 
the period the Trinity players rained shots at the Saints' 
net but brilliant play by Shirley, the S.A.C. goalie, pre- 
vented further scoring during the period to leave T.C.S. 
with a 7-3 lead. 

In the last period Trinity again poured shots on the 
S.A.C. net but Shirley seemed invincible until Lawson 
scored from Campbell. This was followed by a fine shot 
from Taylor which found the corner to beat the S.A.C. 
goalie. S.A.C. now put on the pressure and succeeded in 
cracking the Trinity defence sufficiently to enable Chipman 
to score twice in less than a minute. T.C.S. repelled all 
further attacks and three minutes later Payne scored from 
Lawson to end the scoring. For the final ten minutes of 
play Trinity made successive attacks at the S.A.C. goal but 
good defensive play robbed them of further goals and ended 
the game with the School victors by a five goal margin. 
For Saint Andrews, Chipman and Errington played splen- 
didly accounting for all the S.A.C. goals between them. For 
Trinity Fullerton played brilliant hockey throughout, scor- 
ing two goals while the line of Wells, McDonough and Tay- 
lor combined well to account for five more of the School's 

T.C.S. — Fennell (goal), Fullerton, Wood, Bruce, Wells, Mc- 
Donough, Taylor, Payne, Lawson, Campbell, Newcomb, Ensinck. 

S.A.C. — Shirley (goal), Nold, McGregor, Chipman, Errington, 
Boothe, Scholfield, Marshall, Howson, Laing. 

At Oshawa, February 21: Won 6-4 

In a fast, close game played at Oshawa Arena, a 
superior T.C.S. squad defeated Lakefield 6-4 in a return 

The scoring in the first period was opened when Lake- 
field shot in two quick goals, the first by Reeve from Ket- 


chum at the thirteen minute mark, and the second by 
Easson from Reeve a minute and a quarter later. The 
lone Trinity counter was scored just a minute and three 
quarters from the end of the period by Payne on a pass 
from Lawson. 

In the second period T.C.S. netted three quick goals, 
the first a beautiful shot by Taylor from Wells and Mc- 
Donough at 8.15, the second by Fullerton on a pass from 
Lawson at 11.32, and the third by Wells from McDonough 
and Taylor at 14.33 before Reeve scored unassisted for the 
Grove. Both goalies starred in this period. 

Starting the third period on the short end of a four 
three score, Lakefield put on the pressure resulting in Ket- 
chum's unassisted goal on a break-away at the 9.17 mark 
which tied the game up again until Trinity's rushing de- 
fenceman, Don Fullerton, scored again on a pass from 
Wells to put the School in the lead once more. This lead 
was lengthened when the Payne from Lawson duo scored 
again at 18.38 to finish the scoring. 

For T.C.S. , Fullerton, Payne and Lawson stood out 
while Reeve and Ketchum starred for the Grove. 

T.C.S. — Fennell, Fullerton, Wood, Taylor, W^ells, McDonough, 
Bruce, Payne, Lawson, Newcomb, Ensinck, Goodbody. 

Lakefield — Wessel, Easson, Gibault, Reeve, Ketchum, Gibson, 
Sinclair, Sharo, Russell, Milnar, Jones, Huddart. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 
At Maple Leaf Gardens, February 26: Lost 5-2 

In their first game of the season against Upper 
Canada, the first team was beaten 5-2. The game featured 
very close checking and many break-aways on the part of 
the fast U.C.C. team. 

Taking advantage of the general disorganization of 
the T.C.S. squad in the opening minutes of the game, Upper 
Canada gained a 3-0 lead within the first eight minutes 
of play. Their first goal came at the 4.20 mark when 


Cork on a pass from Ball fired the puck past Fennell from 
just inside the blue line. Shortly after this, with only six 
minutes and thirty-six seconds of play gone, Hadden on 
a pass from Gossage and Ball that left him completely in 
the clear, netted U.C.C.'s second goal. At the 7.50 mark 
Murphy intercepted a T.C.S. pass and Hewitt, taking the 
puck from him, put U.C.C. three goals ahead. At 12.30 
Taylor, Wells and McDonough, showing the first signs of 
an attack on the part of Trinity, set up a beautiful pass 
play that should have been a goal, but Taylor, sweeping in 
from his right wing, was unable to beat Orr in the Upper 
Canada nets. At 15.55 the first team, still fighting hard 
to pull down the U.C.C. lead, were finally rewarded when 
Campbell scored on a shot from the blue line. Payne and 
Lawson were given assists on the play. There was no 
further scoring in the period but Upper Canada's greater 
speed gave them the edge in play. 

With U.C.C. starting the second period short-handed, 
Don Fullerton scored Trinity's second goal on a beautiful 
rush with only twenty-two seconds of play gone by. The 
second period of play was much more even, and at times 
Trinity threatened to tie the score. There were no goals 
scored on either side, however, until with only fifteen 
seconds left in the period Upper Canada took a 4-2 lead 
with Kent scoring, assisted by Murphy and Hewitt. 

In the third period U.C.C. took a 5-2 lead on a goal 
scored by Hewitt from Murphy and Bazos at 6.02. The 
T.C.S. squad fought hard in the last minutes of the game, 
but their playing became disorganized. 

Fennell in our nets was very good, having to stop many 
Upper Canada break-aways as well as many other shots 
on goal. Fullerton also played well for us. The Upper 
Canada squad played very well as a unit, and no one was 
really outstanding. 

U.C.C. — Orr, Cork, Riddel, Bazos, Frame, Murphy, Hewitt, Kent, 
Hadden, Gossage, Crerar, Ball. 

T.C.S. — Fennell, Fullerton, Wood, Taylor, McDonough, Wells, 
Bruce, Lawson, Payne, Campbell, Newcomb, Ensinck, Goodbody.

At Port Hope, March 1: Lost 9-3 

In their final Junior B League game T.C.S. lost to a 
powerful Upper Canada team by a score of 9-3. Up until 
the last period the play was extremely even but then 
U.C.C. let loose with a sensational display. 

The first period started with Upper Canada holding 
the puck in the School end but after a few minutes of play 
T.C.S. fought into their opponent's end and with Upper 
Canada a man short on a holding penalty, McDonough tal- 
lied on a pass from Taylor to give Trinity the lead. This 
was short lived, however, for seconds later Hewitt beat 
Fennell to tie up the game. For the remainder of the 
period play was fast and furious, both teams striving for 
the advantage; however, they were unable to score and the 
period ended 1-1. 

Early in the second period Wells put Trinity ahead on 
a shot from close in and shortly afterwards Wood scored 
to give T.C.S. a two goal lead. Once more U.C.C. put on 
the pressure enabling Murphy to score on a deflected shot. 
A few minutes later Gk)ssage scored to tie up the game 
once more. For the remainder of the period neither team 
was able to score and the period ended 3-3. The third 
period opened with T.C.S. on the offensive but this was 
soon turned to the defensive as Hadden and White tallied 
within two minutes of each other. Upper Canada con- 
tinued this overwhelming attack and in three minutes 
scored again to make the score 6-3. With less than four 
minutes remaining Gossage beat Fennell from close in to 
widen the U.C.C. lead. With U.C.C. a man short Trinity 
relieved the pressure for a short period but with one 
minute left Gossage scored for the College. With ten 
seconds remaining Hadden scored on a pass from Gossage 
to end the game with a 9-3 total. 

For Upper Canada Gossage. Riddell and Cork stood 
out while the line of Wells, Taylor and McDonough played 
well for Trinity. 


T.C.S. — Fennell, Wood, Bruce, Fullerton, Wells, McDonough, 
Taylor, Payne, Campbell, Lawson, Newcomb, Ensinck, Goodbody. 

U.CC. — Orr, Riddell, Cork, Hewitt, Kent, Murphy, Bazos. Had- 
den, Gossage, Ball, Cicarar, White, Frame. 

At Port Hope, March 10: Lost 7-5 

In a rough game played on soft ice Trinity was de- 
feated by a fast Port Hope team. The School suffered the 
loss of Wells who injured his ankle in the first minute of 

Port Hope opened the first period with a fierce attack 
which seemed to baffle the School and after only two 
minutes of play Goody blasted a pass from Hagen into the 
Trinity nets. T.C.S. returned the attack but were unable 
to beat Jex, the Port Hope goalie. Port Hope took ad- 
vantage of a breakaway when Hunt scored to give them a 
two goal lead. Port Hope definitely had the edge for 
several minutes enabling Hagen and Hunt to tally to give 
the Port Hopers a 4-0 lead as the period ended. Shortly 
after the start of the second period Campbell beat Stottart 
in the Port Hope nets to open the scoring for Trinity. T.C.S. 
then commenced a series of ganging attacks but the Port 
Hope defence was equal to them and it wasn't until the 
period was half over that Taylor tallied on an unassisted 
play. For several minutes play see-sawed from one end 
to the other until Goody got in the clear and on a pass from 
McMillan shoved the puck past Fennell to give Port Hope 
a 5-2 lead. Less than a minute afterwards a perfect com- 
bination play of Ensinck to Taylor to McDonough ended 
in a well-deserved goal for the School. For the remaining 
minute of the period T.C.S. kept the puck in the Port Hope 
end but good goal-keeping prevented further scoring. 

The last period was but two minutes old when Bulger 
scored for Port Hope on a face-off near the T.C.S. goal. 
Fifty seconds later Bulger again scored on a break-away 


to give Port Hope a 7-3 lead but less than a minute later 
Payne banged one past Jex on a pass from Lavvson to keep 
T.C.S. in the running. A great chance came for T.C.S. 
with Port Hope two men short but although the Port Hope 
goalie v/as subjected to an unmerciful pounding he held the 
School scoreless until his players returned to the ice. For 
the remainder of the period T.C.S. had the better of the 
play and with less than four minutes remaining Campbell 
scored on a long shot. The period ended with T.C.S. keep- 
ing the puck in the Port Hope end and vainly striving to 
score. The game ended with Port Hope victors by a 7-5 

The School played one of their best games of the year 
and did remarkably well considering the poor ice. For 
T.C.S. Campbell, Taylor, Ensinck and Bruce played well, 
while Jex, Goody and Bulger were outstanding for Port 

T.C.S. — Goal: Fennell; defence: Wood, Fullerton; centre: Wells; 
wings; Taylor, McDonough; alternates: Payne, Campbell i, Lawson 1, 
Newcomb, Ensinck, Goodbody. 

Port Hope — Goal: Jex; Stottart; defence: Dotzko, McMillan; 
centre: Mark; wings: Sidey, Lewis; alternates: Smith, Hagen, Lewis, 
Bulger, Goody, Cane, Hunt, Elliott, Mclvor. 


Bethune 6 — Brent 5 

Although played on soft, slushy ice that made good 
playmg impossible, the Bigside house game was fast and 
close, Bethune finally coming from behind to win 6-5 in 
the dying minutes of the game. 

The scoring was begun by Bethune at the 2.23 mark 
of the first period when Dave McDonough scored on passes 
from Ensinck and Wells. Brent evened it up at 9.20 when 
Thompson iii scored with an assist by Fullerton, and took 
a one goal lead at 18.43 when Black i scored from Wood. 

Bethune evened the score at 4.20 in the second period 


with a Taylor from Ensinck goal. However, goals by 
Little from Wood i at 6.45, Black i from Thompson iii at 
14.10, and Little from Fullerton at 18.40, gave Brent the 
5-2 lead which they had at the start of the third period. 

The outlook was sad for Bethune fans until the 9.50 
mark of the third period when Wells at last found the net 
on a pass from Campbell i, who came back at 14.19 to make 
the score 5-4 with an unassisted goal. The game was tied 
up at 14.54 by Wells from Ensinck. This deadlock lasted 
for four suspense-filled minutes until Taylor got an un- 
assisted goal at 18.25 to give Bethune the game. 

Bethune — Goal, Goodbody; defence, Bruce, Ensinck; centre, 
Wells; wings, Taylor i, McDonough; alternates, Campbell ii, New- 

Brent^ — Goal, Stratford; defence, Wood i, Deverall; centre, 
Payne; wings, Fullerton, Lawson i; alternates, Thompson ii, Thomp- 
son iii. Little, Black i. 

Juvenile Hockey 


At Port Hope, February 5: Won 6-3 

In their second league game of the current season 
T.C.S. defeated Newcastle 6-3. Holding a definite superi- 
ority throughout the game the School nevertheless was 
handicapped by the loss of McKinnon i who broke his ankle 
on a play which enabled MacPherson to score. 

Play throughout the first period was slow, both de- 
fences clearing well and the forwards being unable to ob- 
tain any great advantage. However, near the end of the 
period Black broke through the Newcastle defence enabling 
Brooks to score. In the second period T.C.S. attacked 
v/ith vigour and Black scored after two minutes of play. 
This was immediately followed by a goal by MacPherson. 
At this point Newcastle took to the offensive and Richard- 
son scored on a screen shot that beat Goodbody. T.C.S. 
retaliated quickly with goals by Little and Deverall as the 
period ended with the School having a four goal lead.

In the third period Newcastle played hard and scored 
twice on shots by Walton and Sharpe, but Black scored 
again for the School ending the scoring. From here on the 
game became slower with neither team having any decisive

At Port Hope, February 12: Lost 5-1 

In a league game marred by twenty-one penalties 
T.C.S. came out on the short end of a 5-1 score. The 
School played fast hockey all the way but lacked the polish 
of their opponents in front of the net. Port Hope scored 
in the first minute of play on a shot by Hessen from a re- 
bound that the School defence failed to clear. From here 
on, penalties were numerous and one team always seemed 
to be short-handed for the rest of the period. Port Hope 
combined well and had not the T.C.S. forwards back-check- 
ed well the score might have been considerably higher. It 
was not until the closing minutes of the period that Black 
tied up the game with a shot from close in. In the second 
period Port Hope held a definite advantage and in the 
first five minutes of play notched three goals to give them 
a good lead over the School. The third period was con- 
siderably slower and passing by both teams was inclined to 
be ragged. The School forwards led by Austin tried on 
numerous occasions to crack through the Port Hope de- 
fence but were unable to do so. In the closing minutes 
Hessen scored again to end the game with a 5-1 score. 


For Port Hope Hessen and Ashley with two goals 
apiece were the outstanding players whilst Austin and 
Goodbody played well for Trinity. 

T.C.S. — Goodbody, Deverall, Brodeur i, Black i, Thompson iii, 
Brooks i, Austin, MacPherson, Bascom, Timmins, Hall, dePencier, 

Port Hope — S. Bevans, B. Bevans, Jeffreys, Churchley, A.shby, 
Saunders, Wilcox, Hessen, Dotzko, Freeman, Jones, Black. 

At Orono, February 15: Lost 6-2 

In a return league game with Bowmanville, played on 
exceedingly poor ice, Trinity was defeated by a fighting 
Bowmanville team. 

Play in the first period was confined to shooting the 
puck from one end to the other over the uneven ice surface 
and it was only in the final minutes of the period that 
Hooper scored for Bowmanville. Early in the second period 
Cowle countered for another Bowmanville tally but the 
School retaliated quickly on shots by Austin and Black to 
tie the score. 

Early in the third period T.C.S. had several scoring 
opportunities with Bowmanville a man short but failed to 
score. With Black serving a penalty Bowmanville had the 
advantage and Sturrock scored to give them the lead. 
Shortly afterwards Hooper tallied again for Bowmanville, 
and with Brodeur given a penalty, scored another two goals 
to give Bowmanville a decisive lead. For the remainder of 
the period play see-sawed from one end to the other but 
neither team was able to score. For Bowmanville Hooper 
with four goals was outstanding while Austin and Ck>od- 
body played well for Trinity. 

T.C.S. — Goodbody, Deverall, Brodeur i, Black 1, Thompsno ii, 
Thompson iii, Brooks i, Austin, MacPherson, Bascom, Timmins, Hall, 
Drummond, dePencier. 

Bowmanville — Rowe, Hooper, Sturrock, Cowle, Tighe, Ketchum, 
Degeer, Levett, Hamilton, Duston, Dadson, Wooder. 



At Port Hope, February 18: Lost 7-6 

In a fast, hard-checking game on good ice, the School 
was edged out in overtime by a powerful Port Hope team. 
Play from the first whistle was furious and early in the 
period Port Hope took the lead on a goal by Jeffreys. T.C.S. 
stepped up their attack and a short time later Black scored 
unassisted to tie up the game. At this point Port Hope 
was awarded a penalty shot but Goodbody cleared with a 
brilliant save. Shortly afterwards Trinity took the lead 
v/hen Bascom banged in a rebound from MacPherson but 
Hessen soon beat Goodbody to tie up the score once more. 
In the second period both teams strove for the advantage 
making play fast and both goalies were called upon to make 
some remarkable saves but the period remained scoreless. 
Going into the last period determined to break the tie, the 
School was rewarded by two quick goals by Austin and 
Brooks but Port Hope fought back and Churchley scored 
on a long shot. Then Brooks scored again to give T.C.S. 
another two goal lead but again Churchley scored to bring 
the Port Hope team nearer to a victory. With six minutes 
left Thompson made it 6-4 for Trinity but Jeffreys notched 
two quick goals to tie up the game shortly before the final 
v/histle. In the overtime period T.C.S. slowed up, giving 
Port Hope the advantage for a short time during which 
Dotzko scored the winning goal. The School drove back 
and attacked superbly but were unable to score before time 
was up. 

For Port Hope Jeffreys and Hessen were outstanding. 
Brooks and Black were the best Trinity forwards while 
Goodbody performed magnificently in goal. 

T.C.S. — Goodbody (goal), Deverall, Brodeur i, Black i, Thomp- 
son iii. Brooks i, Austin, MacPherson, Bascom, Timmins, Hall, Drum- 
mond, dePencier. 

Port Hope — S. Bevans (goal), Bevans, Jeffreys, Churchley, 
Ashby, Saunders, Wilcox, Hessen, Dotzko, Freeman, Jones, Black. 


At Lakefield, March 5: Lost 5-1 

In an exhibition game against the Lakefield second 
team, T.C.S. came out on the short end of a 5-1 score. The 
game was a hard-checking affair and was fairly fast 
throughout although the ice was soft. 

Lakefield opened the scoring early in the first period 
when Burns beat dePencier on a close shot. Trinity then 
returned to beat March in the Grove nets a short time 
later. Lakefield seemed to have a slight edge for the re- 
mainder of the period and succeeded in scoring twice more 
to give them a 3-1 lead at the end of the period. The 
second period opened with Easson banging in a rebound 
past Stratford and moments later Milver scored to give 
the Grove a four goal lead. Trinity attacked vigorously 
and succeeded in hammering the puck near the Grove goal 
but the defence seemed impregnable and the School was 
unable to score. The third period was much rougher, the 
referee handing out penalties to three Grove and one T.C.S. 
player. Trinity were unable to make the most of their 
advantages and although they kept the puck in the Lake- 
field end most of the period, and seemed the better team 
on the ice, the splendid work of March in the Lakefield 
nets prevented them from scoring. 

For the Grove, Bourroughs, Easson and March were 
outstanding while Bascom and Deverall played well for the 

X.c.S. — dePencier, Stratford, Brodeur, Deverall, Hall, Black i. 
Brooks i, Thompson iii, Austin, Bascom, Drummond, Little, Mac- 

Lakefield— March, Reese, Drew, Wilks, McNaughton, Bour- 
roughs, McCullough, Easson, Diesfecker, Bums, Milver, Wither, 



This year Middleside was again coached by Mr. Key 
and although all games were lost the team never gave up 
trying and should provide Bigside with some useful men 
next year. 

In their first game at Lakefield, Middleside was de- 
feated by a score of 11-2. Lakefield seemed to have a 
more experienced team and although the School attacked 
continually they were outclassed by their opponents. In 
a game with Pickering College the team did much better 
and it was not until the dying moments of the game that 
Pickering were able to eke out a narrow 6-5 victory. 
Huycke (2), Harvie (2). and Morgan were the goal get- 
ters for Trinity and played a good offensive game. 

The return game with Lakefield found the School 
much improved but although they outplayed Lakefield in 
the second period they came out on the short end of an 
11-4 score. Merry, Emery and dePencier played well for 
the School while Pangman. Harvie, Boulden and Merry 
were the T.C.S. marksmen. 

In the House Game, which was combined with the 
Juveniles, Brent seemed to have a slight edge but were held 
to a 2-2 tie by Bethune in a game played on very poor ice. 
Brent led 1-0 at the end of the first period but a quick goal 
by MacPherson tied it up. In the last period Thompson 
scored for Brent but with only three minutes remaining 
MacPherson tied it up. As an overtime period was out 
of the question due to the poor ice it was decided to have 
another game if weather permitted but to date no further 
arrangements have been made. For Brent Thompson and 
Black played well while Austin and MacPherson were out- 
standing for Bethune. 

Middleside — Paterson iii, Vallance, Emery, Morgan, Merry, 
Ketchiun, Chitty, Huycke, Mclntyre, Harvie, Pangman, Boulden, 
Alley, Byers, McKenzie, Woods i. 



This year the Midgets played good offensive hockey 
but were elminated from the playoffs by a strong Port 
Hope team. In their league games they finished in second 
place and won their exhibition game with Upper Canada. 

Against Orono some fine goal tending by Luke and 
spectacular offensive play by Grout resulted in a 5-3 vic- 
tory after trailing by a 2-0 score at the end of the first 
period. In the Bowmanville game T.C.S. had an over- 
whelming edge over their opponents and after an early 
lead continued to pile in the goals for a final 6-1 score. 

In their first playoff game with Port Hope, the School 
came from behind a three goal deficit to tie up the score 
in the last period only to lose on a goal scored in the early 
moments of an overtime period. In the second playoff 
game the School was severely trounced, being on the short 
end of a 7-1 score. 

In a hard-fought exhibition game at T.C.S., the Mid- 
gets emerged victorious over the U.C.C. midgets on a goal 
scored at 19:58 of the last period on a spectacular play by 
Moffitt. Throughout the season the team has played well 
with Luke doing well in goal, Moffitt being spectacular 
throughout on the attack and McGill playing a splendid 
defensive game. The high scorers for the Midgets were 
Moffitt, Rogers ii and Kingman, each with five goals. 

Mr. Hass has done a good job as coach and we con- 
gratulate him on turning out such a splendid team. 

Midgets — Luke, Wilson, McGill, Wright, Moffitt, Kilbourn, 
Rogers ii, Kingman, Potter, Bermingham, Bronfman, Scowen, 
Woods ii, Thompson v. 


This year Littleside had extremely bad luck, and were 
unable to obtain many fixtures. However, two games 
were arranged with the Junior School first team and a 
third with S.A.C. 


In the first J.S. game, Littleside eked out a four-three 
victory over a powerful J.S. squad. Harris, with two 
goals, contributed largely to the Littleside victory by his 
fast offensive play. In the return game Littleside sailed 
to a 6-0 victory on goals by Van Straubenzee (2). McKin- 
non. Harris. Croll and Bate. The Littleside squad had a 
definite edge throughout, and although the J.S. defence 
played a fighting game, Littleside proved too much for 

Even the addition of three Midget players was not 
enough to save Littleside from an 11-1 trouncing by the 
S.A.C. Midgets. Kingman scored the lone School goal in 
the second period to avoid complete disaster at the hands 
of the S.A.C. powerhouse. 

In the Littleside House game, Bethune was edged out 
by a 3-2 margin. Rogers and Kingman played well for 
the losers, each scoring a goal, while Thompson v, McGill 
and Moffitt scored for Brent. 

Mr. Dale coached Littleside this year, and has done 
an extremely good job. being a great help to the whole 
team vnth his knowledge.

Harris, Peters, Van Straubenzee, Palmer, Durnford, Bate, Croll,

At Cobourg, February 5: Lost 41-26 

In the second game of the season with Cobourg, T.C.S. 
was defeated on the Cobourg floor by a score of 41-26. 

Cobourg gained the lead early in the game and they 
never lost it. In the first half the play was very even but 
T.C.S. made a few bad blunders to give Cobourg the ad- 
vantage. From then on Cobourg steadly increased the 
lead except for a last minute spurt by T.C.S. The small 
floor and low roof hampered the Trinity boys considerably 
and increased the value of Cobourg's zone defence. T.C.S. 
lost the game mainly because of a few small errors and 
their poor shooting in the first quarter. 

The best for Cobourg were Quigley, Kellough and Hol- 
land. The steady playing of Gaunt plus Rogers' scoring 
stood out for T.C.S. 

T.C.S. — Brewer, Carson, Wismer, Conyers, Rogers, French, 
Sweny, Watts, Gaunt. 

Cobourg — Quigley, Holland, AUender, McGuire, Kellough, Ball, 


At Lindsay, February 12: Won 35-17 

The School scored a decisive victory over Lindsay by 
defeating them 35-17 in a rough but fairly slow game. 


The first half started well for the School as Brewer 
scored most of the School's early points. T.C.S. com- 
pletely dominated the play and fought hard to hold Lind- 
say to two points in the first quarter. Rogers was well up 
on the scoring list as the first half ended with Trinity 
leading 28-8. 

In the second half T.C.S. relaxed, and for the most 
part the seconds played. However, the School still main- 
tained their lead, and had control of the play. Again the 
play was rough and both teams had numerous foul shots. 

Brewer was the star of the T.C.S. team, getting ten 
points, while Preston was the best for the losers. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Rogers i, Brewer, French, Wismer, Conyers ii, 
Carson, Sweny, Watts. 

Lindsay — Puffer, Preston, Collins, Rowden, Walker, Laidley, 

Egglfeton, Logan, Philip, SUtch, Newton. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, February 14: Won 50-21 

The First Team defeated St. Andrew's College 50-21 
in a Little Big Four basketball game. T.C.S. took an early 
lead which was never threatened. Playing a fast breaking 
game Trinity outclassed their opponents, showing more 
finish around the basket. 

After the opening minute the game was never in doubt, 
and it was simply a case of how many points Trinity would 
pile up. S.A.C. fought hard but had no chance against a 
T.C.S. team which could do no wrong. 

Rogers was the high scorer for the victors, netting 
twenty-four points, while Hersch and Malcolmson played 
well for the visitors. 

S.A.C. — Hersch, Malcolmson, Simpson, Little, Triest, Taylor, 
Henderson, Edmonds. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Rogers, Brewer, French, Wismer, Conyers, Car- 
son, Sweny. 


SCHOOL vs. D.K.E. 

At Port Hope, February 15: Won 55-43 

The First basketball team defeated the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon fraternity of the University of Toronto 55-43. 
Minus two of the starting line-up, the School team played 
well to defeat the fraternity team in a high scoring game. 

The School took the lead in the first half 21-14 mainly 
due to the shooting of Brewer and Wismer who scored 
eighteen points between them. The second half was very 
close with not much to choose between the two teams 
although the School outscored the D.K.E.'s 34-29. 

Brewer was outstanding for Trinity scoring thirty 
points while Wismer was the next high scorer with sixteen 
points. McGregor and Lawson were the top men for the 
D.K.E.'s with sixteen and eleven points respectively. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Brewer, Conyers, Wismer, Carson, Dame, Sweny, 

D.K.E. — Hawkins, McGregor, Hurst, Guthrie, Lawson, Robarts, 


At T.C.S., February 19: Won 47-32 

In a crucial league game against Peterborough, league 
leaders until this game, T.C.S. , featuring a fast-breaking 
squad, battled all the way to a convincing 47-32 victory. 
The School started in high gear, with Wismer scoring a 
basket on the first play, and kept on driving all the way. 
Play in the first half was fast moving but close, and it was 
Rogers' accurate pivot shooting that gave the School a 27- 
19 lead at half time, as he scored sixteen points. It was 
only the School's sustained drive that kept them in the 
lead, as Peterborough looked as if they might break away 
at any moment. The T.C.S. defence held them all the way. 

The second half was much the same as both teams 
displayed a superb example of fast ball handling. The 
School, however, further increased their lead in this half 
so that Peterborough never came within eight points of 


them again. Keeping up their attack all the way, T.C.S. 
built up a fifteen point lead by full time as they outscored 
their opponents 20-13 in this half. 

The game was fast and closely fought all the way, and 
though the Peterborough team played an excellent game. 
T.C.S. featuring Roger's accurate shooting and a speedy, 
fighting squad, had the edge. Rogers amassed twenty- 
six points and v. as ably supported by the whole team play- 
ing one of the best games of the year. Peterborough was 
game to the end, making the play very close. Richardson 
and Mcllveen stood out for the visitors. The School's vic- 
tory pulled Peterborough from the top into a second place 
tie with T.C.S., leaving Cobourg leading the league. It was 
the School's fifth successive victory. 

Fet^^rborough — Richardson, Mcllveen. Green, Leek, Connel, Gra- 
ham, Thompson, McKee, D. Richardson. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Rogers, Brewer, French, Wismer, Sweny, Watts, 
Conyers. Carson. 


At Cobourg, March 1: Lost 29-26 

In an exhibition game against Cobourg. the seniors 
finished on the short of a 29-26 score. The game played 
on the small gymnasium in Cobourg was by no means 
spectacular. T.C.S. seemed to be at a loss on the small 
floor until the final quarter when they pressed Cobourg 
hard but were unable to find the basket. 

Cobourg opened the scoring in the first quarter but 
T.C.S. kept pace with them and the score at the period's 
end was 9-8 for Cobourg. 

In the second stanza Cobourg doubled their total while 
Trinity only collected two more baskets to leave the score 
at half time, Cobourg eighteen, Trinity twelve. 

In the third quarter Cobourg completely dominated 
the play and were able to make T.C.S. hurry their shots 
so much that they were only able to score one point. Co- 


bourg clicked nicely several times to boost the score to 

The last quarter was all Trinity's and after much hard 
work and excellent playing T.C.S. had Cobourg worried. 
However, Cobourg held and the final score was Cobourg 
29, T.C.S. 26. 

Quigley for Cobourg was undoubtedly the best man 
on the floor, while Trinity as a unit worked hard and im- 
proved steadily as the game progressed. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Rogers, Conyers, Brewer, French, Wismer, 
Sweny, Watts, Carson. 

Cobourg— Quigley, Holland, AUender, McGuire, Kellough, Ball, 


At Port Hope, March 5: Won 70-31 

In a very fast and close-checking exhibition basketball 
game, the first team outplayed and outscored the Port 
Hope Rascals. Never throughout the course of the game 
was Trinity in danger and the end of the first half found 
the School leading 32-6 on points amassed by eight players 
on some very nice shooting. 

The beginning of the second half found the play see- 
sawing back and forth and thus it was for the whole quar- 
ter, when the School outscored the Rascals 18-14. 

The final quarter saw the School pressing hard 
throughout, and the team piled up a total of twenty-two 
points due greatly to the excellent play of Brewer and 

The grand checking of French and Gaunt, and the all- 
round play of Brewer was the key-note of the School at- 
tack, while for the Rascals the play of Bonguard and 
Creighton stood out. 

T.C.S. -Gaunt, Rogers i, Brewer, French, Wismer, Conyers U, 
Watts, Sweny, Carson. 

Port Hope Rascals — Creighton, Bonguard, Austin, Fulford, Cot- 
ter, Branwood. 




At Peterborougrh, March 10: Lost 59-26 

Peterborough eliminated the School from the senior 
C.O.S.S.A. League by a 59-26 win. The winners played an 
effective man for man defence which had T.C.S. baffled on 
the large floor. P.C.V.I. made use of the fast break many 
times to catch the School defence napping. 

The officials dominated the game from the start call- 
ing very close penalties which might have been avoided. 
Before T.C.S. could get started their opponents had scored 
ten points, a lead which they constantly added to. In the 
second half Peterborough made a runaway of the game 
outclassing their opponents in all departments. 

T.C.S. tried hard but the accurate shooting of Richard- 
son and Thompson made victory certain for Peterborough. 
McDveen also played a strong defensive game for the win- 
ners, while for the School, Brewer and Gaunt played well. 

T.C.S. -Brewer. Carson. Wismer, Rogers, Conyers, Gaunt, 
Sweny, French, Watts. 

P.C.V.I. — Richardson, Mcllveen. Green, Graham, Langborne, 
Lee, Dibben, Thompson, Matthews. 

At Port Hope, March 12: Won 62-51 

In a game studded with many fouls, the First Team 
defeated Oshawa in their final contest of the season in the 
T.C.S. gymnasium. 

The first quarter opened slowly, with the play see-saw- 
ing back and forth, being slowed up by lack of fighting 
spirit on both teams. The second quarter was much the 
same imtil near the end when the play opened up con- 
siderably and both teams displayed some excellent check- 
ing and rushes. Although the School was leading at half 
time 27-21, the game was still very much in doubt. 

The second half opened with a little better show of 
basketball than did the previous half, and near the end of 


the third quarter the School's attack caught fire and the 
team scored seventeen points. 

In the last quarter the play was fast, and saw Oshawa 
trying strongly to overcome the lead that the School had 
amassed against them in the first three quarters; but this 
was all to no avail, for although they outscored the School 
22-18, the game was Trinity's to the tune of 62-51. 

Captain Gaunt played an outstanding game for the 
School, both offensively and defensively, accounting for 
nineteen points. French played a very fine checking 
game, while Wismer and Rogers aided greatly in the vic- 
tory by sniping thirteen and seventeen points respectively. 

T.C.S. — Gaunt, Rogers, Wismer, French, Brewer, Sweny, Con- 

yers, Watts, Carson. 

Oshawa — Hanna, Crawford, Mayer, Poster, Dell, Chant, 

HOUSE GAME: Won by Bethune, 55-37 

Bethune House soundly trounced Brent House in the 
Bigside Basketball House game by a score of 55-27. Brent 
proved no match for the Bethune team ably coached by 
John Dame. 

The first half was only slightly one-sided and at the 
end Bethune had only a ten point lead. The second half 
was all Bethune as they out-scored Brent 28-11 to make 
the final score 55-27. 

Rogers was outstanding for Bethune scoring twenty- 
nine points ably supported by French who played well de- 
fensively. The Brent House team was slightly disorganized 
but fought hard. 

Bethune — Carson, Conyers, Greenwood, Rogers, French, Vernon, 

Brent — Wismer, Howard, Gaunt, FuUerton.Wood, Sweny, Watts, 


Junior Basketball 

The Junior basketball team, coached by Mr. Rhodes, 
raised the standard of basketball a great deal over pre- 
vious years, and if the team had had more spirit and will 
to win, they would have fared much better. Although 
the team failed to win any games, a decided improvement 
was made, and at the end of the season the team was 
working well as a unit. Dignam. the captain of the team, 
Vernon. Howard. Greenwood and Bascom played well 
throughout and should provide excellent material for Big- 
side next year. 

Janiors — Dignam, Vernon, Howard, Greenwood, Bascom, Snow-

Strong Memorial Trophy Meet 

The Bill Strong Memorial Trophy, given to the best 
skier in the School, based on slalom, dov/nhill, and cross- 
country, was awarded for the first time, to Fennell. The 
trophy was given by a group of Old Boys in memory of 
Bill Strong who was killed in a flying accident during the 

The downhill and slalom were held at the Northumber- 
land Ski Club on March 6 while the cross-country was held 
on March 8 at the Port Hope Golf Course. Of the twenty 
boys who entered only ten finished the course. The fol- 
lowing is the list of entries:

The Northumberland Ski Meet 

The School entered a six man team in an open meet 
at Northumberland, sponsored by the Northumberland 
Forest Ski Club on February 2. On very short notice the 
team faced competition with racers representing ski clubs 
from Hamilton to Peterborough with the first good snow 
conditions of the season. In two slalom runs, the first on 
the Gadner trail and the second, a slightly trickier one, on 
the Slalom hill, a Hamilton skier clocked in first for com- 
bined times, with Rogers i of T.C.S. hot on his heels. Rogers 
received second prize of a new pair of steel ski poles. 
Placing for T.C.S. in combined time totals were Baker 8th, 
Powell 11th and dePencier 13th out of some thirty com- 

Ski Meet with S.A.C. 

On Friday, February 14, the School played host to 
S.A.C. in the first post-war ski meet. The first to be held 
by the School with a ski tow available, the two schools 
competed at Northumberland ski centre, some seventeen 
miles from Port Hope. In spite of the clogging snow con- 
ditions, excellent times were made down a very bulky sla- 
lom course laid out by the ski pro at Northumberland. 
Baker, the T.C.S. ski captain, was the first competitor to 
run the course and he made an excellent thirty-nine 
seconds. Next came Middleton of S.A.C. also captain of 
his team who schussed the flags for 38.1, best one of the 
day. Powell, vice-captain of T.C.S., weaved through the 
flags for a 38.8, best time for the School, and second in the 
meet. Inners of S.A.C. then chalked up a 47.3 while Sifton 
christied down for 39. The final score: 

S.A.C— Middleton 38.1 sec, Innes 47.3, Lewes 51.3, 
Todd 57.6, Bass 59.5, Strorlup 64.9 sec. Total, 318.7 

T.C.S.— Powell 38.8 sec. Baker 39, Sifton 39, dePen- 
cier 40.5, Welsford 43.1, Prentice 54.6 sec. Total 255.0 


The meet endftd with the School victorious holding 
63.7 seconds advantage. Altogether the meet was a great 
success and we hope that it may be followed by many more 
like it. 

The Bethany Inter-Scholastic Ski Meet 

Saturday, February 15 

The Peterborough Ski Club mvited the School to par- 
ticipate in an inter-school giant slalom to be held at 
Bethany on Saturday, February 8. To be asked to ski at 
Bethany was in itself an honour, for Bethany had just re- 
opened after a war-time shut-dowTi and no T.C.S. skiers 
had been there for some years. 

With perfect weather and snow conditions, the team 
arrived at Bethany about 12.30 and the races got under 
way at 2 p.m. The three man senior team flashed down 
a long and hard run, through gates, flushes and bird-cages 
to finish with Fennell first, French second and Baker 
fourth. The three man junior team raced a modified 
senior slalom with Rogers i first, Powell fourth and Sifton 
fifth. Racing individually from T.C.S. were dePencier 
third and Welsford seventh. Cobourg, The Grove, Peter- 
borough Collegiate, St. Peter's Collegiate and T.C.S. entered 

Thus T.C.S. won the meet both individually and as a 
team. Fennell and Rogers returned victorious with in- 
dividual trophies and the team with the new Dit Clapper 
inter-school trophy which will be challenged annually.

Our very best congratulations to Panet on winning his 
Bigside Gym. Colour. As far as we can find out. he is the 
first Old J.S. boy to win this honour in his New Boy year 
in the Senior School. Panet has worked very hard at his 
gym. and has earned this success. 

The sincere thanks of all members of the First Hockey 
team are due Mr. and Mrs. Symons for the wonderful way 
they entertained us after the Ridley hockey game. 

One rather unique story comes out of the hockey sea- 
son. U.C.C. Prep, were here to play the J.S. in the Town 
rink. Taxis had come to take both teams to the arena. The 
first two cars had pulled off from in front of the School 
leaving a third car which happened to contain six U.C.C. 
boys and nobody from the J.S. The first two cars arrived, 
without incident, at the rink some five minutes later. Some 
fifteen minutes later the U.C.C. coach came to our changing 
room, in a state of mild agitation, to look for six of his 
team.. Having disclaimed any charges of kidnapping, we 
started searching for them with him. 

The mystery was not solved until the missing taxi 
drove up to the rink some few minutes later with a rather 
shamefaced driver at the wheel. It appeared that he had 
been under the impression that he was driving a J.S. team 
to Lakefield! The car had apparently covered some miles 
on the Peterborough highway before one of the occupants 
remarked in a diffident voice that the Port Hope rink was 
a long way from the School! This produced a rapid stop 
and a hasty return to Port Hope. Lakefield would have 
been surprised! 

Forms I A and Prep, enjoyed a sleigh ride party or- 
ganized by Mrs. Ketchum and they also especially enjoyed 
a grand feed afterwards. Very many thanks to Mrs Ket- 
chum from these forms. 



You know — sometimes when skies are grey 
My thoughts they wander far away 
To lands where I have often been, 
But other folks have never seen. 

For one, the Land of Ponkapiv 
That's where the Bulbajujos live 
They sit beneath the shady trees 
And steal the honey from the bees. 

Another place is Jenkypoo 
But that's a nasty place for you 
The language there is very queer 
And has been so for many a year. 

But when I came back from my daze, 
I'd passed right through a kind of haze, 
Voices seemed to say you see 
That home's the very best for me.

Have you ever looked back on the days when you were 
just starting something new and you were not much good 
at it? How people used to laugh your efforts to scorn! 

Life has a habit of dishing out such things on a full- 
size plate, but in so doing Life also expects you to learn to 
finish that plate. 

Most of us can think of countless times when we our- 
selves have laughed a beginner to scorn. But as you grow 
up, you learn to encourage a person who is starting some- 
thing for the first time. 

Sometimes you feel that you simply cannot keep from 
laughing at a boy who skates on his ankles and stumbles 


about. Try your very best, for his sake, not to laugh. 
For, though it is hard to admit, you were once a beginner 
yourself !

Little robin redbreast, 

Singing in the tree, 

Won't you fly down from your nest 

And have a talk with me? 

Pretty, little bluebird. 
Flying through the air. 
You always look so pretty. 
I have to sit and stare. 

Here comes our little wren! 
What makes you so small? 
The stork, the swan, and ostrich 
Are all so very tall.

There was once a rich, old man called Mr. Appelby who 
owned a big house near the sea. He also owned a beauti- 
ful carriage and a pair of lovely white horses. 

Mr. Appelby had had trouble with his coachman re- 
cently and had been obliged to fire him. He put up a 
notice in the nearby village which ran as follows "Coach- 
man wanted. Apply to Mr. Appelby". 

The next day five young men appeared as applicants 
for the job. In his interview with them, Mr. Appelby' ask- 
ed them all the same question "How close can you drive to 
the edge of a cliff?" 


The first young man said that he could drive to within 
one inch of the cliff. The next one said that he could drive 
to within half an inch. "I can drive to within a quarter of 
an inch" said the third. The fourth man said that he could 
drive right up to the edge of the cliff and not go over. Mr. 
Appelby sent them all on their way. 

When the fifth man came in, he was also asked the 
question. His reply was "I have never driven near to the 
edge of a cliff and never intend to." Mr. Appelby hired 
him on the spot saying "I just wanted to get a good driver 
who would not take risks. That is why I asked you that

One day as I was riding a bicycle on a hike through 
England I met an old tramp who asked me to take his bag 
for him to the next town and leave it at the Inn. 

I did not think that there could be any harm in that, 
so I took the bag and rode off as fast as I could to get the 
job done. 

I was just coming in sight of the Inn when a police- 
man stopped me and asked what I had in the bag. I told 
him that I did not know as it had been given to me by some- 
one to take to the Inn. 

The policeman immediately wanted to see what was 
in the bag. When he had opened it and looked inside, he 
grabbed me by the collar and carted me off to jail. 

At the jail I was informed that I had stolen a large 
amount of precious jewels from London and would probably 
get a long sentence. I was still loudly proclaiming my 
innocence when .... I woke up!

Slowly, faintly, hardly noticeable, 

Soft, grey streaks appear; 

O'er the horizon, orange-tinged shadows 

Show that dawn is near. 

Behold, the birds! 

Quiet once. 

Now their songs you hear. 

Big, quiet, dark, and tall, 
In clouds of darkness cool, 
A dark and solitary shadow — 
Suddenly is the school. 
Behold, the night! 
Darkened once. 
Is now a sunlit pool.

(This is an extract from an essay on English Social Life in the 17th 
century written this term by H. S. B. Symons, Form HAD 

In the seventeenth century superstition had reached 
one of its peaks in England and the dread of witches broke 
out into frenzied persecutions. At the beginning of the 
Stuart era no one was safe from accusation. James the 
First was a firm believer in witchcraft and even went so 
far as to write a book on "Demonology". Mathew Hop- 
kins, Witchfinder Royal, and a notorious witch hunter, con- 
victed hundreds of people before he was convicted himself. 

The trials and tortures were both brutal and inhuman. 
There were also various tests to determine guilt or inno- 
cence. One of them was by "floating". In this test the 
accused was tied in a sack and drawn through a pond. If 
you drowned you were innocent, if you floated you were 
guilty and therefore died anyway! 


In the trial by "pricking" there were certain parts of 
a witch's body which when pricked neither bled nor hurt. 
With the trial by "weighing" the accused had more chance. 
Your weight was compared with that of the parish Bible; 
if you weighed more you were innocent. 

To make a witch confess, various tortures were used. 
A cord was sometimes twisted around their temples: their 
nails torn out by the thumbscrew or their legs were crushed 
by the iron boot. It is no wonder that the supposed witch 
would confess to anything the accuser wished! 

Some of the supposed witches were just followers of 
old religions; certain others boasted silly spells or jinxes. 
It was believed that they could transform themselves into 
anything they wished, become invisible, cause hail and 
thimder, and cast every imaginable spell. 

There were also certain people who claimed to be 
"white" witches, that is to say, their powers were devoted 
to good ends. They used their spells to cure disease, to 
find lost property, and other helpful things. Yet even 
they were often penalized and tortured. 

The fascinating and brutal story of witchcraft was 
bom in man's shadowy past and even yet is not extinct.

Captam of Hockey P. A. C. Ketchum 

Vice-Captains I. B. McRae, R. M. McDerment 

The team this year showed excellent form from the 
beginning of the season. Both forward lines were well- 
balanced and showed good scoring and back-checking 
ability. Our first pair of defencemen proved very valuable 
indeed in covering up in front of the net and also showed 
plenty of aggressiveness in getting the puck out of our 
territory. Our goalie also served us well. We could un- 
doubtedly have used our number one defence player, 


Southam, to great advantage against Ridley, but the team 
made an excellent showing without him.

At Lakefield, February 4: Lost 9-5 

This game produced a very fast brand of hockey from 
both teams. T.C.S. opened the scoring on a goal by Woods 
early in the first period. Two quick tallies by the Grove 
put them ahead about half way through the period. An- 
other goal for the School by Southam tied up the score at 
the end of the period. 

The second period saw both teams driving hard with 
Lakefield scoring two goals to one for the School by Ket- 

In the last period Lakefield's slightly superior speed 
and weight began to show to advantage and they succeeded 
in scoring four goals to two for T.C.S. by McDerment. 
Final score: T.C.S. 5, Grove 9. 


T.C.S. — Ketchum i (Capt.), McRae, Symons, McDerment, 
Wright, Weicker, Southam i, Pitt, Woods, Gill, Hoffmann (goal). 
Manager: Brodeur. 


At Port Hope, February 8: Won 5-0 

The School won this game on superior speed and skat- 
ing ability. Upper Canada had a somewhat younger team 
but matched us well for general size and weight. T.C.S. 
showed more organization in the attack and made more of 
their opportunities around the goal. U.C.C. threatened on 
many occasions but failed to press home their advantage 
when in over the T.C.S. blue line. Pitt and McRae scored 
in the first period, Southam in the second, Ketchum and 
McRae in the final period. Final score: T.C.S. 5, U.C.C. 0.

At Port Hope, February 13: Lost 4-2 

The return game against the Grove was a very hard- 
fought one and the School played one of the best games 
of the season. The play was very even and fast through- 
out the first two period with both teams scoring twice. 
Osier and Wright tallied for T.C.S. 

A strong drive by Lakefield brought them two goals 
in the third period and the School was unable to score again 
in spite of many good attempts. Both sides played an 
excellent brand of hockey. Final score: T.C.S. 2, Lake- 
field 4.

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Aurora, February 19: Won 15-0 

In this game the School completely outskated and out- 
played a heavier and slower Macdonald House team. The 
game was never in doubt from the beginning and only the 
good work of the Saints' goalie prevented a higher score. 
McDerment was the top scorer for the School with seven 
goals to his credit. Final score: T.C.S. 15, S.A.C. 0. 

T.CS. — Ketchum i (Capt.), McRae, Osier i, McDerment, Wright, 
Church i, Symons, Southam, Pitt, Woods, Gill, Hoffmann (goal). 
Manager: Muntz. 


At Varsity Arena, March 5: Lost 7-5 

Both teams were very evenly matched although the 
School was without the services of Southam, their number 
one defence player. Play was fast throughout the game 
and both sides had many opportunities around the goal 
which they failed to push home. The score was tied at 2-2 
at the end of the first period and then in the second period 
again at 3-3. Ridley scored three quick goals to go into a 
6-3 lead. The School, however, made a good comeback and 
the game ended 7-5 in Ridley's favour. In the opinion of 
those who have watched our games over the last several 
years, the game this year rates as one of the best-played 
and most hard-fought of the series.

The House Game 

Won by Rigby House 6-4 

This year's House Game, like rugby, was extremely 
well-played and generally produced a better brand of hoc- 
key than we have seen in House games for several years. 
Rigby, by virtue of having the first team goalie and also 
his sub, plus the two top defence players certainly had an 


edge before the game even started. Rigby opened up very 
fast scoring four goals to one in the first period. Play was 
very even in the second with Orchard attacking strongly 
and succeeding in scoring a goal. The third period pro- 
duced some of the best hockey of the game and both house 
scored twice. Final score: Rigby 6, Orchard 4. 

Rigby House — Southam i (Capt.), Wright, Symons, Osier i, 
Levey, Weicker, Oatway, Hylton, Kelk, Hoffmann, Pitt, Christie, 
Muntz (goal). 

Orchaxd House — Ketchum i (Capt.), McRae, McDerment, Bruce, 
Woods, Tench, Farley, W^illiams, Seagram, Gill (goal).

pointed Speaker of a House and we are very proud of the 
honour which has come to Mr. Hepburn. 

He was at the School from 1889 until 1893. with such 
boys as Edward and Joseph Seagram, Septimus DuMoulin, 
R. C. H. Cassels, Dudley Dawson, Lionel Lambe. W. T. Reni-

We hope he may visit us before long.

marks "Your appeal for a contribution towards the Alma 
Mater of a great number of Canadians and lads of British 
parents in Canada is a fine movement and I wish the 
greatest success to the same. I see a chapel at the School, 
a building worthy of its conception and the magnificent 
history of its pupils. Well do I recollect the chapel as I 
knew it, and raising my voice in the choir in the late 1870's. 
Many of my contemporaries of those days have departed 
this world, but they leave records of great works for 
Canada and the Empire and many made the last and great 
sacrifice during the recent wars. I wish every success to 
the Memorial Fund." Colonel Hewett's address is Crag

four years in our Junior School and left us two years ago; 
he is now only fifteen years of age and he enclosed a most 
generous donation to the Memorial Fund. As his letter 
was so well expressed we reprint it here: 

"It is two years now since I left Trinity but the 
pleasant memories I experienced there have lingered very 
plainly in my mind. Here, at high school, it is a totally 
different life, a different atmosphere than back 'On the 
Hiir, and it is extremely hard for me to leave with any 
person my comparison between the two schools. For these 
past two years I have written to friends at Trinity and 
received 'The Record' every term, which, more or less, has 
kept me pretty well informed on School activities. I should 
like very much to be down in June, on Speech Day, to see 
some of the crowd I knew and refresh my memories of 
some of the forgotten sights. 

"Just lately your letter to the O.B.A., concerning the 
new Chapel, has come to my attention and I am very 
happy and privileged to enclose with this letter my cheque 
covering my contribution to this grand cause.

drama and short story writing at the University of Chicago 
while carrying on with his broadcast once a week. He ex- 
pects his radio show to go on the road for two or three 
years and he has evidently done extremely well as the 

Master of Ceremonies.

Sir Godfrey Rhodes ('01-'04) writes to say that he was 
leaving England towards the end of February to return to 
Kenya. His firm is Sir Alexander Gibb and Partners, Con- 
sulting Engineers, and he vs^ill be the Manager of their 
office in Nairobi. Sir Godfrey says he had had a minor 
operation but he was fit enough, when he wrote, to play 
rugger and ice hockey again! He recalls his visit to the 
School a year ago with the utmost pleasure and sends his 

best wishes for our future. 


We are constantly hearing of the leading part which 
T.C.S. boys are taking at McGill University and we are 
very glad this is the case. There are some sixty T.C.S. 
boys at McGill this year and over half are veterans. The 
majojity are in the Faculty of Arts, with Commerce and 

Engineering next on the list. 


J. G. (Herb) Hyland ('20-'24) is the Manager of Radio 
Station CJIC in Sault Ste. Marie. He has a son nine years 
of age whom he wishes to send to the Junior School in 

September, 1948. 


Norman Paterson ('39-'43) was demobilized from the 
British Army last autumn and arrived at the Ajax Division 


of the University of Toronto in November. Despite the 
fact that he had missed six weeks of work, he has kept up 
remarkably well in his course. Having been at British 
universities on army courses during the war, Norman is 
able to make a comparison in the attitude of the students 
and he finds that the standard of work is very high at 
Ajax and that the undergraduates apply themselves with 
much more seriousness than they do at Oxford and Cam- 

At a meeting held at Trinity College, Toronto, for the 
War Memorial Fund, Provost Seeley spoke in very en- 
couraging terms about the T.C.S. boys now at Trinity. He 
said there was a larger number than ever before and one 
could always depend upon a boy from T.C.S. to give his 
best in every way. 

Jeremy Main ('42-'46) writes from Princeton and 
comments that factual knowledge in the courses seems 
much less important than original ideas. 

Rocky Roenisch ('40-'45) tried for the Yale University 
hockey team last winter but owing to the return of so 
many veterans he did not make it ; however, he was a mem- 
ber of the "B" Squad, or Junior Varsity Team. He has 
been skiing and playing a good deal of squash. Davis con- 
tinues to do extremely well in his studies. 


In the first broadcast of its kind in the north, Rt. Rev. 
R. J. Renison (member of the Governing Body), Anglican 
Bishop of Moosonee, recently spoke to the Indians of the 
north in their own language over a radio station in Tim- 

The bishop spoke in Cree to his far-flung parishioners 
on James Bay and Hudson Bay with a message on the 
approach of Good Friday and Easter. He also said that 


proposed government legislation promised a great increase 
ill medical services for Indians in the north. 

Robert P. Jellett ('92-'97) was recently re-elected 
chairman of the Montreal Welfare Federations' Board of 
Governors for 1947-48. Mr. Jellett is also a member of the

The following athletic reports have been sent in about 
Old Boys now attending Trinity College: 

Jack Goering won his Trinity and University letter 
in both track and soccer and was outstanding on the 
Trinity soccer team. 

John Beament was player-manager of the intra-mural 
swimming champions at Trinity and won his letter. He 
was an outstanding lineman on the football team and was 
manager of the hockey team. He has been a leading light 
all year in the organization of athletics and for this was 
appointed by the Athletic Association as manager of athle- 
tics for the coming year. 

John Symons has taken part in many athletics during 
the year. He was on the championship swimming team 
and the hockey team as well as being among the top six 
in squash at Trinity. 

Pat Vernon has done very well around the college 
being a standout on the football team and on the swimming 
team. He was also player-manager of a basketball team. 

Eddie Huycke was captain and star of the Varsity 
Junior football team and was on the first Trinity hockey 
team but due to an injury finished the season on the 
seconds. He also won his letter as a member of the swim- 
ming team. 

FYed Huycke has also been playing excellent hockey 
for Trinity. 


Jim Barber has done very well in his first year being 
on both a Varsity and Trinity soccer team and winning his 
letter in both. 

Peter Dobell was captain of the Trinity soccer team 
and played on the second Trinity hockey team and is also 
on the Trinity squash team. He did so well as secretary 
of the Athletic Association this year that he has been 
elected to the post next year by acclamation. 

Gordon Gibson won the Junior inter-faculty gym. 
competition and for this was awarded his letter. He then 
went on to place fourth in the Senior meet.

Church, Toronto, T. Alan Staunton ('27-'31) to Mrs. R. 
D. McLaren. 


FoiT«*it — On Saturday, February 8, at Toronto, Dr. R. F. 
Forrest, for many years School doctor. 


Old Boys all over the world will be sorry to hear of the 
death on February 8 in Toronto of Dr. Forrest. He had 
been in poor health for some time but he always retained 
his quiet good humour. 

Dr. Forrest was appointed School doctor in 1910 and 
he retired in 1936. Throughout those years the health and 
welfare of the boys were always uppermost in his mind. He 
took a deep interest in the School and the life of the in- 
dividual lads and no request was too much trouble for him. 
The lives of a number of boys were undoubtedly saved by 
his skill for Dr. Forrest was renowned for his ability, 
especially in diagnosis. 

His home, so hospitably presided over by Mrs. Forrest, 
was a gathering place for T.C.S. people. Masters and boys, 
and the devastating T.C.S. appetites were for once satisfied 
at his bountiful board. The doctor may have been out all 
night on a country call but he never gave a sign of it and 
put the boys at ease by his cheerful conversation. 

The School and the Town have recently lost three doc- 
tors who stood for the finest tradition in the practice of 
medicine: Dr. Diamond, Dr. Benson, and now Dr. Forrest. 
The service they rendered to their fellow men in need can 
never be forgotten by those who knew it. 

The funeral service for Dr. Forrest was conducted by 
the Rev. C. H. Boulden, a Master at the School for fourteen 

To Mrs. Forrest and her daughters the School sends 
its deepest sympathy.

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of October, December, 

February, April, May and July. 

Authorized as Second Class Mail, Post Office Department, Ottawa. 


The Trinity term every year is always a continual 
rush with a great many things to be done and a very short 
time in which to do them. Seldom more than eight weeks 
long, there is as much accomplished in it as there is in any 
of the other terms. There is a full cricket season for three 
teams, a track team to develop for outside competition as 
well as for the School sports day, all the drill and gym.. 
practice necessary for Inspection day and on top of this 
are final exams at the end of the term with Upper School 


exams coming usually in the middle of the term. Two 
issues of the "Record" are written and collected during the 
term. This is the same number as is published in each of 
the other two terms which are from four to six weeks 
longer. On top of all this is very often a guard of honor 
for the visiting speaker on Speech Day. 

Two months seems an incredibly short time in which 
to accomplish all this and indeed it is. It has, admittedly, 
been done each year but in so doing a great number of 
things are sacrificed. Usually the first half of the term 
is spent mainly in preparation for Inspection Day and as a 
result all athletics are rather haphazard during this time. 
Immediately after Inspection and, in some years, before it. 
come the Upper School exams which leaves little time for 
boys to do very much extra studying. About ten days 
after the Upper School exams end the rest of the School 
exams start and consequently the time for athletics which 
is left after Inspection day is almost continually interfered 
with by exams. Thus either the exams affect the boy's 
athletics or else the sports will do harm to his marks. 

There is very little that can be done about these cir- 
cumstances as long as this very short final term remains, 
A great deal of credit is due to boys and masters alike for 
getting as much done as they do. There is, however, an 
atmosphere of tension among the boys during the whole 
term as there is so much for them to get done. This tension 
could be relieved a great deal if the term started two weeks 
sooner than it usually does. If there could be some definite 
date for the beginning of the Trinity term which was 
around the first of April, rather than such a variable time 
as is now the case due to Easter, there would be a great 
deal more time to accomplish the same amount of work 
and hence the work could be done that much better. This 
admittedly would knock about two weeks off the end of 
the Lent term. However, these last two weeks are often 
a fairly slack time as it is the end of the hockey and bas- 
ketball seasons and the time could perhaps be more pro- 
fitably spent at the first of the final term. 


The big drawback to this plan is, obviously, the 
weather, which is none too certain during April. However, 
during the rain (and snow!) of the early spring, much can 
still be accomplished. The gym. show could be prepared 
for, training for track could also be carried out in the gym. 
and even a certain amount of cricket practice could be 
done indoors. Extra studying could also be done on the 
rainy days. Thus all, or at least a great deal, of the neces- 
sary indoor work would be done and boys would have more 
time to spend outside at games when the weather did clear 

I don't mean to give the impression that the Trinity 
term as it now stands is a horrible nightmare in any way. 
I'm merely suggesting that if it could be arranged to add 
two weeks or so to the beginning of it, the strain during 
the term would be considerably eased.

Mr. Editor: 

This is to show my appreciation of the new-boy sys- 
tem through which I have learned a great deal in my first 
year at the School. 

I write this not looking ahead a few weeks when I will 
have completed my year as a new-boy, but rather back on 
what was accomplished throughout this course. I call it 
a course because that is what it is; a training course de- 
signed to build character in every new boy, to enable him 
to live in harmony with his fellows. 

There are many duties and humiliations facing a new 
boy when he comes to this School, that he does not like, 
and consequently makes a problem out of them. The only 
v/ay to solve this problem is complete co-operation with the 
system. A lot depends on the first impression, the first 
attitude, because it isn't always easy to change early in 


the year once the wrong attitude has been taken. There 
seem to be several different outlooks which a nev/ boy 
usually takes; first, he is taken aback by the whole system 
and naturally resents it: resenting it, he tries to fight it. 
In doing so he arouses the resentment not only of the 
senior boys who are trying to discipline him, but also of 
other new boys who see that he is trying to avoid the 
humbling to which they are all subjected. Thus he finds 
himself like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. 
This is invariably checked during the year for this reason: 
at a day school a boy who doesn't know how to get along 
with others is usually avoided, but he can always turn to 
his home for sympathy and companionship, whereas at a 
boarding school with a new boy system, other boys can- 
not avoid him; they are forced to live with him, and he 
with them. They will not sympathize with him as his 
family might, but will show him his faults and force them 
out of him. He in his turn will find that he can get along 
with his fellows only by ridding himself of his faults. In 
this way better character is developed in the boy by the 

Secondly, he may take it all as a joke and not realize 
the seriousness of the whole thing. Then he gets into 
trouble and finds out that it is to be taken more seriously, 
and that he can be happy and have fun if he stays on the 
right side of the law and performs his duties as a new boy. 

Thirdly, there is always the type that doesn't care and 
just carries on in an untidy way. In turn this character 
will find that he gets little out of the life. Sooner or later 
he wakes up to the facts and finds that in developing his 
interest in the School he enjoys the life more and more. 

The new boy system on the whole has helped me in 
three ways: first, it has taught me how to be neat, in 
appearance and manner; secondly, it has taught me how 
to take orders; but, above all it has taught me how to get 
along with others. 


I have heard many arguments against this system 
and they have seemed quite convincing, but when I look 
back on it and what it has done for me, I really can't see 
the School as successfully organized as it is now without it. 

I write this for the benefit of future new boys at 
T.C.S., to be taken for what it is worth, 

(Signed) : A New Boy of '46-'47. 

Editor's Note : The boy who wrote this letter was one 
who, at the first, found the system impossible to endure. 
He has now written the above entirely of his own free will 
and has asked that it be printed. 


Mr. Editor: 

It has seemed to me that a few words said on the old 
School tradition of "Singing Off" those who are not re- 
turning might not be amiss. 

If an Old Boy of ten years ago were to return, I do not 
believe he would recognize this custom as it now stands. 
In his time it constituted a sincere and heartfelt "So-long" 
given by the School as a body to their friends whom they 
were sorry to see go, but of whom they were proud. In 
our time we seem to have lost all this feeling. The "Sing- 
ing-Off" consists of the School breaking up into groups, 
each of which chases and finally captures successive vic- 
tims who undergo a severe though friendly beating about 
the head, during which several people are generally acci- 
dentally bashed in the face. 

One Old Boy who has written many of our School 
songs has captured in verse the sad but happy feeling that 


Singing Yon Off 

There's a sunlit evening that comes in June 

When your Trinity schooldays are done; 
It's the end of term, and all too soon 

You must say your goodbyes and be gone. 
And as you stand in your room that night 

Comes a trampling of feet on the stair, 
And they drag you out m the fading light 

To the boys who are waiting there. 


For they're singing you off from the old life here, 

They're singing you off from the School; 
And they grip your hand and shout and cheer 

Till you're ready to cry like a fool. 
You'll hear those voices ringing still 

As the years divide you from the Hill, 
And you'll see that crowd till your journey ends, 

Your first and your best and your truest friends. 
All singing you off, singing you off, singing you off, 

From the School, from the old red School. 

You face the West where the sky's still red 

While the singing and shouting arise; 
But you find you have to bend your head 

For the hurry of tears to your eyes. 
You never thought you would feel it so. 

You never believed you would care; 
But your lips now show that it's hard to go 

From the boys who are singing there. 

But you must not think that the end has come, 
You must summon a smile if you can, 

For the boyhood days you are turning from 
Will be part of your life as a man. 

And friends are friends though they're far apart, 
And vision is stronger than sight; 


When your courage fails you will take fresh heart 
At the thought of the boys tonight. 

— J.D.K. ('07-'10) 

I genuinely hope, Mr. Editor, that this grand old tradi- 
tion will be revived. 





Confirmation Service 

The annual Confirmation Service was held again 
this year on the evening before Palm Sunday. It was con- 
ducted by the late Archbishop Derwyn Owen, Archbishop 
of Toronto, and Primate of all Canada. 

In his address the Archbishop spoke on the subject of 
power as brought out in the sacred act of Confirmation. 
He pointed out that all the assets of our being are de- 
dicated to God in this service, and that when they are thus 
combined they produce the most powerful force there is. 
For this reason. Confirmation is one of the most important 
steps we take during the course of our whole lives. 

Once again the choir performed in a faultless manner. 
After the Processional Hymn, they sang the Introit, "I 
Lift My Heart to Thee". This is a very slow, beautiful 
work, which was very appropriate for the opening of such 
an impressive service. The choir also rendered the anthem, 
"Jesu, Meek and Lowly" by Sir Edward Elgar. It is the 


first time that this has been sung in the Chapel, but its 
presentation was excellently done and left nothing to be 
desired. Mr. Cohu and the choir in general deserve our 
warmest congratulations and sincerest thanks. 

On Palm Sunday a Choral Communion was held in 
order that the newly confirmed might celebrate their first 
communion, and again the work of the choir was excellent. 

We should like to thank Rev. C. H. Boulden of St. 
Mark's Church, and Rev. J. M. Crisall of St. John's Church 
for assisting during the Confirmation and first Communion 

Canon C. A. Moulton 

The Rev. Canon C. A. Moulton, Rector of St. Simon's 
Church, Toronto, spoke at Evensong on Sunday, April 20. 

He told us about the Epistle of St. Paul the Apostle 
to the Philippians in which a great destinction had been 
made between Christians, who are the citizens of heaven, 
and the rest of the world, who are the citizens of various 
countries. He pointed out how difficult it may sometimes 
become for us to remain good citizens both of Heaven and 
of Canada, and he laid down some general principles for 
us to follow in our daily lives. 

In closing, Canon Moulton urged us to become Pil- 
grims of Christ, trying to spread the citizenship of heaven 
among the citizens of the world, while keeping to the 
standards set by our Lord. 

A Call to Action 

The Record takes pleasure in printing the following 
sermon delivered at St. Matthew's Church, Timmins, by 
Kenneth Langdon ('44-'45). 

I have taken my text from the 4th chapter of the 
gospel according to St. Matthew beginning at the 18th 


"And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee saw two 
brethren, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother, 
casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. 

"And he saith unto them, 'Follow me and I will make 
you fishers of men.' 

"And they straightway left their nets and followed 

I choose this text not as a topic for my sermon nor 
for any moral value that it may contain: — I offer it to you 
as a contrast. 

The contemporaries of Christ who knew him and who 
witnessed his works had no trouble in believing. To those 
who heard him speak, who saw him heal, who experienced 
the radiance and the warmth of his presence, there could 
be no doubt of his identity. I admit, the way was difficult 
if they were to follow for there were many who opposed 
him and persecuted his followers. Nevertheless, his ad- 
herents had a rock-bottom faith — directly inspired by Jesus 
the Divine. No matter how difficult it was to follow in a 
material sense (for it often meant all manner and kind of 
persecution) there was the inward spiritual fire that turn- 
ed the simple Galilean fishermen into spirited leaders and 
self-sacrificing followers. Therefore, because of their 
direct knowledge of God they could leave their only means 
of livelihood, without a minute's hesitation, when beckoned 
by Christ. 

But today, I fear, it is a different story. Despite the 
unfailing and devoted perseverance of the church, the 
memory of Christ's life, the glorious example he set and 
the supreme sacrifice that he made for us, is beginning to 
fade from our memories. Perhaps the reason for this is 
because we are beginning to look upon the New Testament 
as a work on ancient history rather than as a moral and 
spiritual way of life. Probably much lack of interest is 
due to the fact that we are diverted by the material things 
of a material way of life and because a secular doctrine is 
taught in our schools and forced into the minds of the pub- 


lie by radio, newspapers and theatre. Whatever may be 
the reason for the apathy towards the church, the fact re- 
mains that it does exist. 

Now, in this moral and spiritual crisis, we have more 
need of an organized church as a progressive power of 
good than we ever had before. Today, when the power of 
the atomic bomb hangs over the future existence of man- 
kind like an owl hovering over a mouse, we have need of 
every sinew of the church the fight for peace and security. 
Let us not deceive ourselves with the thought that the 
Church, through some mystical and obscure power, will be 
able to overcome the tremendous difficulties that face it 
now. As Jesus called upon Peter and Andrew that night 
so does the church call upon you this night. It does not 
ask you to drop your life's vocation and go forth to spread 
the word of Christ among the ignorant, but it does call up- 
on you to bind yourselves together and present a stout 
front to that which threatens the Church. 

I can see by your expression that the preceding sen- 
tence was distasteful to you because it was vague and high- 
sounding. I'll try to clerify my meaning but first I wish 
to make two things clear. 

If you believe that before you work for the church 
you must have complete and unshakeable faith in all that 
the church teaches, then may I say that your services shall 
never be at the disposal of the Church. Although there 
is a certain amount of inherent faith in all men, do not wait 
for a full and complete belief before you do service. If the 
leaders and exponents of the Christian religion had waited 
for full revelation, Christianity would be classified as an 
extinct religion in today's encyclopedia. 

Secondly, if you so believe that by attending church 
once a month and depositing five dollars in the collection 
plate you are fulfilling your obligation and discharging 
your duties to the church, then you are deceiving yourself 
and destroying the church. 


Your duty to the church embraces more than a weekly 
attendance of services. If you want to aid this parish and 
help to strengthen and unite our church, join the church 
clubs and accept those tasks which are assigned to you no 
matter how heavy or how humble. 

The strength of this Church and all churches depends 
upon the unity of the congregations. A church is like a 
business in this respect: you only get out of it what you 
put into it. 'As ye sow so shall ye reap'. 

The reason I have for asking you to join the church 
clubs is this. The spread of Christianity was not due to 
the Bible. The first works of the Nev/ Testament were not 
written until some seventy-odd years after the Resurrec- 
tion of our Lord. Christianity, its faith, its doctrines and 
its ideals spread almost entirely by word of mouth and by 
discussion. Such discussion was then the most potent 
factor in the spread and acceptance of our belief. Today 
it is still the most powerful agent that the church pos- 
sesses. But discussion can only take place if people will 
congregate and contribute their ideas. This church pro- 
vides a place and has organized groups that will form a 
nucleus. But these groups are pitifully small; member- 
ship must grow if these organizations are to survive; and 
they must survive if the church is to continue to be any- 
thing other than an impotent force in a world of material 
chaos and blind destruction. 

I am not saying that church organizations are erected 
only for the purpose of discussing religion. Indeed, most 
of the work done by these organizations is along charitable 
lines and fulfilling certain functions that are expected of 
the church and required of it. But these clubs bring all 
members of the congregation together and thus tend to 
simulate early Christian fellowship and give us a fuller and 
more Christian conception of our fellow man. 

And now, as a youth, I think that it is only appro- 
priate that I address a few remarks to the younger people 
of this congregation. 


It is US that the church looks forward to for support 
not only in the future, but at this time. The church can 
use all the fire that youth possesses and all the potential 
that lies unspoiled within us. It is by our active support 
that the church looks forward to the time when it may 
establish a kingdom on earth more similar to that which 
exists in Heaven. The same potential in us that can make 
more deadly the arts of war and destruction, can be em- 
ployed to erect a decent Christian society where man may 
pursue a life uninterrupted by terror and death. We, the 
young people in this church tonight, will either vastly im- 
prove the position of the church in society or tear apart 
the last vestige of Christianity. 

In time of national danger it is easy to arouse 
patriotism because the enemy is tangible and cannot be 
ignored. But the enemy of the church is not nearly so 
tangible .... it's a passive force rather than an active one. 
It is an enemy that is easy to ignore, hard to recognize in 
its true colours. But it is a force far more potent that 
any man-made enemy. It promises to be more destructive 
of peace than Hitler at the height of his conquest. It is 
the apathy of people in general — and you in particular. 

We must take stock of ourselves and then turn our 
endeavours to strengthening the church. Let's quit vainly 
wishing that we were members of the United Nations 
Council. Instead, let us remember that we are all the 
children of God. Let us congregate as a family and 
straightway follow Christ as did Peter and Andrew. 



1876 - 1947 

The sudden death of Archbishop Owen on April 9 
brought sorrow to countless people everywhere. In his 
long ministry of forty-seven years Derwyn Owen had be- 
come universally beloved and admired, and we at this 
School felt that he was very truly our Father in Gk)d. On 
March 29 he had conducted the Service of Confirmation 
and had spent the whole day at the School arriving in the 
early morning and leaving late at night. Many times he 
had visited us and always he spoke of the pleasure it gave 
him to be with the boys. 

Archbishop Owen was born in England and came to 
Canada with his family in 1882. They settled on a farm 
near Brandon, Manitoba, later moving to Gore's Landing 
on Rice Lake north of Cobourg. Often the Archbishop 
recalled his first sight of T.C.S. when he was a lad riding 
on a hay wagon and how the boys playing on the green 
fields brought back memories of his early years in Eng- 
land. He attended schools in Gore's Landing, Cobourg and 
Toronto, going on to Trinity College from where he 
graduated in 1900. 

At a dinner the School gave in honour of the Primate 
and Mrs. Owen last November, the Archbishop spoke feel- 
ingly of his early days in the West and at Gore's Landing. 

After serving as Curate at St. John's, Toronto, All 
Hallows, London, England, and St. James', Toronto, he was 
appointed rector of Holy Trinity, Toronto. In 1914 he be- 
came rector of Christ's Church Cathedral, Hamilton, and 
Dean of Niagara, being elected Bishop of Niagara in 1925. 
In 1932 he was elected Bishop of Toronto and two years 
later he became Primate of the Church of England in 

The funeral service was held in St. James' Cathedral. 
Toronto, on April 12, and the Archbishop was buried in the 


graveyard of St. John's Church, York Mills. As a student, 
at Trinity, he had served this Church. 

He is survived by his wife who was Nona Jellett, two 
sons, Robert ('19-'25), and the Rev. Derwyn, two daughters 
and two brothers. A third son, David, was killed in Nor- 
mandy in 1944. 

The School sends its heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Owen 
and the members of the family in their loss. 

On Sunday, April 27, a Memorial Service for Arch- 
bishop Owen was held in the School Chapel; the Head- 
master spoke as follows: 

To-day we at this School are paying tribute to the life 
of a most distinguished Canadian, the leader of the Church 
of England in this country, and the head of this diocese — 
Archbishop Derwyn Trevor Owen, who died suddenly on 
April 9. 

There is a story told of a great tree of the woods. 
Straight and strong, many years it grew, well rooted and 
grounded, overshadowing all the other trees round about, 
spreading out its branches over them like covering wings. 

It grew older and some of the spring went out of its 
Umbs. Then one day it fell, suddenly, to the ground. The 
forest seemed hushed after the shock, all the surrounding 
trees were motionless, there was no rippling of their leaves. 

That is the way we feel when one of our parents dies; 
that is the way we felt when we heard of the Archbishop's 

Only a few days before, he had been here in this 
Chapel, confirming, strengthening, boys. "Defend O Lord 
this thy child with thy heavenly grace, that he may con- 
tinue thine forever, and daily increase in thy holy spirit 
more and more, until he come unto thy everlasting king- 
dom." Those were the words he used, and that was the 
theme of his own life, and the purpose of his ministry 
for forty-seven years, defending people against evil by 
strengthening them with the knowledge of the Holy Spirit 


of God. A real Father in God he was to many thousands 
of Canadians. 

Do you remember the story he told in illustration of 
the power of the holy spirit? There were islands, he said, 
in the South Pacific, which were regularly swept by hurri- 
canes coming out of the west; they bent the palm trees 
right to the ground. One would expect the trees to lean 
permanently away from those frightful storms, like the 
great pine trees in our own north country. But that was 
not the case; they leant in the opposite direction, for the 
prevailing winds, though much gentler, blew that way and 
were eventually stronger because they were more constant. 

The pressures of life bend us sometimes until we think 
we may break, but always the gentler, continual spirit of 
God is stronger and will prevail if we let it fill us, root, 
stem and branch. 

The Archbishop was the most spiritual of men. One 
felt that all through his long ministry there could never 
have been any wavering of his faith in the ultimate good- 
ness of men, because they were made in the likeness of 
God, and chiefly because he knew the living power of the 
Spirit of God. 

That faith glowed in his character and in his per- 
sonality, and no one who knew him or heard him could fail 
to feel it or be influenced by it. He was a saintly man and 
he walked with God. 

And he was a man of action. We think of him repre- 
senting Canada at the Lambeth Conference in London, and 
of his flight to England in a bomber during wartime in 
order to meet our soldiers, sailors, and airmen. On that 
occasion he preached in Westminster Abbey and had long 
conversations with Archbishop Temple, one of the most 
eminent religious leaders of all time. 

We think, too, of the great work he did towards unit- 
ing the divisions of the Church, of the wonderful success 
of the Anglican Advance Appeal, of his deeply moving 
broadcast on the day of our Victory in Europe. 


Yes, Archbishop Owen was indeed a man of action. No 
call on his time was too difficult or trivial for him, and he 
would always respond happily. In his post as head of the 
Church of England in Canada he had most exacting and 
arduous duties to perform but he never let them interfere 
with his visits to the remote settlements, and always it was 
the individual man and woman in whom he was interested. 

The Archbishop's own early life had taught him the 
supreme value of sacrifice and hardship and unrelenting 
work in the development of strong character and a sense 
of responsibility to one's neighbours, "No man having put 
his hand to the plough and turning back is fit to enter the 
Kingdom of God." 

Ease and security had no attractions for him — he 
knew how they weakened the human fibre. On one occa- 
sion he asked in a sermon what security any of the leaders 
of history had had, what security had any of the great 
religious leaders, Moses, Paul, or any of the apostles? What 
security, material security, had Jesus? No, the Arch- 
bishop was a doer, he had to be about our Father's busi- 
ness. He knew that all life should be an adventure, the 
Christian adventure. 

But it was the Archbishop's kindliness, patience, and 
unswerving devotion to his calling which won him the 
hearts of thousands. Simple, unaffected, sincere, like all 
truly great men, he was endowed with the "spirit of wis- 
dom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and ghostly 
strength, the spirit of knowledge and true godliness." 

There is a difference between cleverness and wisdom, 
and he was wise; he knew the value of happiness and a 
merry heart, but he was not one to make happiness the 
goal of life. Too often that means, in the minds of men, 
material happiness which is as fleeting as a morning mist. 
I think he would have said that the aim of life, real pro- 
gress, was to discover our God-given talents of mind and 
heart and spirit and to make the most of them, working 


with others and always lending a helping hand to those 
less fortunate. 

Then some day, toward the end of our earthly life 
perhaps, we might be able to look back over our careers 
and feel truly contented that we had done our best, and 
that we had been worthy of the care given to us and the 
space we had occupied in this life. As trustees of an 
exceptional heritage we had justified our existence. That 
surely is a noble aim. 

Last November the Archbishop spoke in our Hall at a 
dinner we gave in his honour, and he said there were three 
lessons he had learned which came out of the changes and 
chances of this life. They were: 

1. There is a destiny which shapes our ends. 

2. The things which seem to be against us turn out 
to be great helps upon the journey. 

3. Here in this life there is no abiding city but the 
things that are not seen seem to be eternal. 

I think he would have agreed with a commentary on 
these impressions which suggested that character is destiny 
— and godliness makes great character, that sacrifice and 
hardship make us strong, and that our spiritual, mental 
and moral life is incomparably more important than our 

material life. 

* * « « • 

The death of a prominent and distinguished man like 
the Archbishop, the death of any close relation or friend, 
shocks us and saddens us. It is natural to feel that way. 
I remember when I was young thinking that life could 
surely not go on without my father or my mother; the 
sun could not rise again. 

But when we grow older we realize that life does go 
on and that human life has gone on for possibly five hun- 
dred thousand years. "A thousand years in thy sight are 
but as yesterday", and man's span of seventy odd years is

but a few hours in the womb of time. Yet what marvels 
he has accomplished and can accomplish. 

We should give deep and humble thanks for the privi- 
lege of knowing a man so great as Archbishop Owen, and 
we should be especially encouraged that the human race 
under God can produce such a man. 

There is here a lesson which many people never learn : 
our life on this earth is fleeting and uncertain. Should we 
not take pains therefore to realize that those who are with 
us to-day may not be with us to-morrow? And should we 
not do our utmost to make the hours of their lives and 
ours contented and worthwhile? Let us remember that at 
home when we are self-willed and difficult; the sands of 
time run constantly; this day can never be recalled or re- 

We do not clearly know the nature of life beyond this 
world, but we do know the imearthly power of the spirit 
of man, and in our moments of higher contemplation we 
feel certain that such a spirit can never die as our bodies 
die. And the nobler the life here, the nobler and stronger 
is the spirit after the death of the body. It is helpful to 
remember, too, that men of all ages have held some such 

Bishop Brent used to say that in this life we can see 
only to the horizon but we know there is much beyond it. 
And so we see, at our stage of development, the death of 
the body, but we know there must be much beyond that 
state, the spiritual life, we call it. 

The earthly life of Archbishop Owen drew men every- 
where to a higher plane; he led them to a better way of 
life and they saw God in him. 

"Onward and upward day by day, 
Straight is the path and narrow the way. 
But many before us the road have trod. 
And the top of the hill is the heart of God." 


The Christian character of our beloved Archbishop is 
indehbly impressed on the minds of all who knew him. He 
has run a good race and kept the faith, and we feel he 
has now heard those cherished and vastly rewarding 
words: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter 
thou into the joy of thy Lord." 




It is my privilege and pleasure, on behalf of all mem- 
bers of the School, to give a very warm and heartfelt wel- 
come to-day to Mr. and Mrs. Blair Russel. It is just twenty- 
one years since they sent their elder son, Dal, to us, and 
since that time they have been firm and fast friends of 
T.C.S. Dal and his younger brother Hugh were here, and 
six other Russel connections from Montreal, so that the 
Russel family is one of the great T.C.S. families and we 
are indeed proud of our association with them. 

Their visit to-day is in the nature of a pilgrimage, for 
there is one thought in their minds. In this past war Dal 
became one of the most distinguished Airmen in all the 
Allied Forces. He went through the Battle of Britain and 
at the end of the war, over six years later, he was the only 
pilot who had been in the Battle of Britain to be still fight- 
ing. Because of his gallantry and skill, he was awarded the 
D.S.O. and the D.F.C. and Bar. We are indeed proud to have 
him and his wife with us to-day. Hugh Russel, of whom we 
are all thinking, was at the School for six years, from 1933 
until 1939. He entered the Junior School and stayed there 
for two years, then went up through the Senior School 
winning countless friends because of his constant good 
humour and ready smile. He was a faithful and valuable 
member of the Choir for many years, he took part in plays, 
he worked steadily at his studies and he played all the 


games. Hockey was his favourite game and we who saw 
him will never forget the way he used to evade his 
opponents by his clever stick-handling and fast skating. 
For three years he played on Bigside and was Captain of 
the team in his final year. He was always calm and in 
command of himself and he seemed to thoroughly enjoy 
the keeness of the game. On every team he was a valuable 
and steady influence. Hugh never said much, he just 
smiled and did his job effectively. He was a Prefect and 
fulfilled his duties capably and well. 

In 1940, shortly after leaving the School, he enlisted 
in the Air Force and went overseas in 1941. He took part 
in many operational flights, flying Hurricanes, and he was 
one of the intrepid band who opposed the German Pocket 
Battleships when they made their mad dash through the 
Dover Straits. He fought in the Dieppe raid and his Squa- 
dron did the greatest damage to the enemy. When he had 
completed his first tour of operations he was promoted to 
Flight Lieutenant and returned to Canada as an Instructor. 

Just four years ago he visited the School and spoke 
to the boys after lunch. Those who heard him will never 
forget the cool, capable and amusing way in which he told 
us the intimate details of his experiences ; his audience was 
captivated and would not let him go. I thought then, and 
still think, that of all the overseas men who have spoken 
to the boys, Hugh made the deepest impression, princi- 
pally because of his simplicity, humility, and humour. 

Hugh went overseas again in 1943 and he had almost 
completed his second tour of operations by "D" Day. He 
took his courageous part in the critical fighting of those 
historic days and wrote to us to say that the magnitude 
of the forces engaged was beyond description; from the 
air he could see nothing but ships and other aircraft. 

In June he was reported missing, and later he was 
officially reported presumed to have been killed in action 
on June 16, 1944. 


Those of us who knew Hugh Russel need no material 
memorial to remind us of him. His fine character and 
winning personality are indelibly impressed on our minds 
and he is part of our lives. 

Mr. and Mrs. Russel, in their thoughtfulness and 
generosity, have given in Hugh's memory a beautiful little 
building which will be prized by many generations of boys. 
Though these boys did not have the privilege of knowing 
Hugh, they will always link his name with this building 
and I am certain Hugh is happy in the knowledge that this 
gift in his memory is bringing them so much enjoyment. 

Hugh and his brothers-in-arms have written an im- 
perishable page in the story of this country and in the 
story of all freedom-loving peoples; by their calm gal- 
lantry and devotion they saved everyone of us from being 
enslaved in the fetters of an insufferable tyranny. Their 
deeds and lives will ever be an inspiration to us. 

"We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths. 
In feelings, not in figures on a dial. 
We should count time by heart throbs; he most lives 
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best." 

That was the way Hugh Russel lived, and that is the 
way he lives. We shall never forget him. 


F^rst of all Mrs. Russel and I wish to thank you for so 
graciously honouring the memory of our son, by your 
attendance at this ceremony. We do fully realize that per- 
sonal convenience must have been put completely aside, 
especially by those who have come from considerable dis- 
tances. Really words fail me to properly express the 
grateful thanks we feel, and owe to you. 

We owe our thanks too, to those who gave our Tuck 
Shop building the sincere thought they did, in design and 
construction. We hope Masters and Boys will have years 


of happy times there. We were indeed privileged and lucky 
to have been able to make the gift and we feel most happy 
that the School was pleased to accept it. 

For a boy's training to-day I cannot imagine a better 
set-up nor more perfect surroundings and atmosphere than 
what you boys have here at Trinity College School. One 
thought behind our gift to you of this Tuck Shop was that 
we wanted to favour something on the lighter side of 
school life. We have felt for a long time, but especially in 
these confused and strenuous times, that it is not generally 
recognized how sustained and gruelling life at boarding 
school is for many boys, nor the grit the life takes. We 
have felt too that we were indebted to the School, as we 
saw it, for the good and manly qualities of character our 
boys gained in the years they spent here. Most deeply, of 
course, we wished in this way to convey to his School our 
dear son Hugh's lasting acknowledgment and gratitude for 
the many benefits and kindnesses he received while here, 
and his lasting acknowledgment and thanks for those dear 
friendships, which he valued so highly and which went 
along with his school life. 

Now we hope that you boys will make this Tuck Shop 
another fine School institution, so that it will in its own 
way contribute, along with your other more seriously 
minded school undertakings, to encourage good friend- 
ships, good behaviour, and by that I mean a fine sports- 
manship, and a high ideal of how life should be lived, al- 
ways sincerely and always for the truth. The history of 
your School which your Memorial Cross depicts in the 
sternest manner, proves beyond all doubt that the hard and 
strict training and discipline boys received here stood them 
in good stead in their after school life, and it enabled them 
to face with such undaunted courage, bravery, devotion 
and sacrifice, those dire and dread events which this sorry 
old world imfortunately encountered. It is a silent and 
sad token of undying grief to so many families, and of such 
great and irreplaceable loss to this dear Canada of ours. 


By way of inspiration, the following are the words 
appearing on the Hugh Russel Memorial Plaque: 

"Always strive to carry your weight in the boat 
and have enough strength in reserve to help the 
other fellow." 

We do trust that these very simple words will be an 
inspiration to many of you. As the unveiling of the mem- 
orial plaque is to take place later in the Tuck Shop, I shall 
then ask Mrs. Russel if she will do so to declare the Tuck 
Shop officially open and all your own. The thought of this 
gift was entirely hers, and Trinity College School and the 
boys attending it have always been very close to her heart. 


The Chairman of the Governing Body, Mr. G. B. 
Strathy, then accepted the new building on behalf of the 
School. He expressed in a few words the grateful feeling 
that the School held towards the Russel family for all they 
had done, pointing out that the School owes them a debt 
of gratitude for their two sons who had come here, and 
who had done so much for it and for their fellow students. 

The visitors, the Masters who had known Hugh, the 
Prefects and members of the School Council then walked 
over to the Tuck where a simple ceremony was held. After 
two short prayers by the Chaplain and the Lord's Prayer, 
the plaque was unveiled by Mrs. Russel who then declared 
^-^♦h^Hbfnild^g officially open. ,

On the plaque was the simple inscription:

Staff Changes 

We regret to announce that Mr. White, who suffered a 
serious heart attack during the latter part of last term, 
will be unable to resume his teaching duties. He is making 
good progress towards recovery, however, and the School 
extends him sincere sympathy in his illness. 

At the end of last term Mr. Rhodes gave up his posi- 
tion as assistant to Mr. Batt. Mr. Armstrong, who was 
previously a member of the staff, has now returned to the 
School after completing his year's studies at McGill Uni- 
versity and will assist Mr. Batt as well as carry on with 
his various coaching duties. 

Opening of the Memorial Tuck 

The new Memorial Tuck, a beautiful modem building 
across the playing fields from the School was officially 
opened on Saturday, May 3, by the donors, Mr. and Mrs. 
Blair Russel of Montreal. Given in memory of their gal- 
lant son, Hugh, who was killed while serving with the R.C. 
A.F. overseas, the new building will stand as a perpetual 
tribute to one of our most popular Old Boys. 

Many visitors from Toronto, London and Montreal 
came for the ceremony. It had been planned to hold the 
whole ceremony at the Tuck itself but because of the un- 
certainty of the weather, all but the actual unveiling of the 

le was held in the Hall. 


Among the visitors were: The Rev. and Mrs. C. 
H. Boulden, Mr. Peter Britton, Mr. C. F. W. Burns, Mr. 
Aubrey Burrows, Mr. and Mrs. Murray R. Chipman, Mr. 
and Mrs. George Gamett, Mr. and Mrs. Nicol Kingsmill, 
Mr. and Mrs. George Kirkpatrick, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh 
Labatt, Mr. and Mrs. John Labatt, Miss Mary Labatt, 
Col. and Mrs. J. W. Langmuir, Mr. J. W. C. Langmuir, 
Mr. A. S. Mathers, The Hon. R. C. Matthews, Mr. and Mrs. 
William Mood, Mr. Ted Parker, Mr. and Mrs. Blair Russel, 
Mr. and Mrs. Dal Russel, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ryrie, Mr. and 
Mrs. S. B. Saunders, Mr. and Mrs. Norman Seagram, Mr. 
Tom Seagram, Jr., Mr. G. B. Strathy, Mr. J. G. K. Strathy. 

Movies in the Hall 

On Saturday night, March 22, a series of movie shorts 
were shown in the Hall. ''The Shining Hours", "Flight 
Six", "John Bull's Island", and "Malta" were shown. Per- 
haps the best was "John Bull's Island", which showed us 
what England has been through, and how she will once 
again rise in a new world, backed by the determination of 
a great people. All in all, this was one of the best shows 
given at the School in some time, and much credit is due to 
those in charge. 

Presentation of Cups 

On Simday, March 23, the School welcomed back a 
distinguished Old Boy, The Hon. Mr. Justice P. H. Gordon, 
a member of the bench of Alberta. He left the School in 
1902 as a Prefect and winner of the grand challenge cup 
for athletics and since then has done much able work in 
the field of law. On the request of the Headmaster, he 
very kindly presented several cups. 

The first of these was the Andrew Duncan Trophy for 
the House which obtains the most points in the annual 
boxing and which was won for the second year in a/fow 


by Brent House. Next were presented the Bradbum Cup 
for the best Boxer, won this year by Brooks i, and the 
Novice Cup for the best New-boy boxer, won by Sifton. 
Justice Gordon then presented the trophies for the most 
valuable players on Bigside basketball and hockey, which 
went to Gaunt and Wells respectively. 

We are very glad that, despite the difficulties of 
travel in snovv'-bound Alberta, Mr. Justice Gordon was still 
able to pay the School this visit. 

Visit of Robert Fennell, K.C. 

Mr. Robert Fennell, K.C, a leading Toronto counsel, 
visited the School on April 21, and very kindly gave a talk 
on the profession of law to all the boys who were in- 

After being introduced by the Headmaster, who men- 
tioned his long and distinguished career in legal circles, 
and the great work he has done with the Royal Ontario 
Museum, The Community Chest and other social organiza- 
tions. Mr. Fennell gave us a brief outline of the many 
qualities which he thought a young man must possess in 
order to become a successful lawyer. The foremost of 
these were a good academic background, a classical educa- 
tion and a large, usable vocabulary. He stressed that 
speech was the most important of these, and that personal 
appearance, integrity and industry are all fundamentals. 

Mr. Fennell then went on to outline the various fields 
of law which are open to the young man of today. He 
pointed out that it is a door to politics, that criminal law, 
civil litigation and corporation law are all fields in which 
there is much to be done. 

In closing, Mr. Fennell said that the profession of law 
is only for those who are not only willing to, but love to 
work at it, and that unless we are willing to give up other 
pleasures for it, we should choose some other career. 


The Church Parade 

On Sunday, May 4, the Cadet Corps paraded to St. 
John's Church, Port Hope. The fall-in was sounded at 10.15, 
and the Squadron moved off shortly thereafter to arrive 
at the church by 11 o'clock. 

The Rev. J. M. Crisall conducted the service with the 
assistance of Mr. Bagley. The sermon dealt with the little 
things of life, and Rev. Crisall pointed out that it was the 
many little things which really count, rather than the few 
big things. 

After the service, the Cadet Corps formed up outside 
the church, and returned to School by way of Walton and 
Ontario Streets. This parade was the first of the year, 
and the whole Corps, especially the short-handed band, de- 
serves praise for its work. 

Visit to the Port Hope Rotary Club 

This year the Port Hope Rotary Club very kindly in- 
vited all boys from countries other than Canada and the 
U.S.A. to one of their weekly Friday night dinners. The 
boys went in two groups, the first on March 21, and the 
second on April 25, when Mr. Briden, head of the Nichol- 
son File Co., was the speaker. 

All the boys would like to thank very much the Ro- 
tarians of Port Hope for the most interesting and enjoy- 
able time they had, and we wish the Rotary Club the best 
of luck in the future. 

Visit of Mrs. Davidson 

Mrs. J. F. Davidson, the noted lecturer and historian, 
visited the School on Thursday, April 24, and gave us a 
very fascinating and instructive talk on the much discussed 
Truman Doctrine. 


Mrs. Davidson was born in Latvia and has travelled 
very widely as well as spending two years in China. She 
can talk seven languages and she is, today, one of the lead- 
ing lecturers on current affairs on the North American 

Mrs. Davidson briefly outlined the doctrine, discuss- 
ing its motives, and its probable advantages and dangers, 
after which she kindly, and as later events proved, very 
valiantly offered to answer any questions. The response 
was overwhelming, and it was not until over an hour and 
a half later that the last of the many questions had been 

We were very fortunate to have a chance to hear Mrs. 
Davidson, and we owe her a great debt of gratitude for 
taking time from her already overcrowded schedule to give 
us a much clearer picture of this vastly important decision. 

Hockey and Basketball Dinner 

The winter season's sports officially ended on Friday, 
May 2, when the annual Hockey and Basketball dinner was 
held in the Hall. It was attended by all members of the 
Bigside Hockey, Basketball, Squash, Gym., Swimming and 
Ski teams, the captains and vice-captains of all teams, and 
the coaches. Mr. Hodgetts who coached both the Basket- 
ball and Swimming teams as well as arranging all the 
schedules of all the teams, was absent due to illness. 

After a very good dinner the coach and then captain 
of the hockey team spoke, the latter presenting Mr. 
Humble with a lighter on behalf of the team. The Head- 
master made references to the old days when boys cut 
their own hockey sticks and played under the viaduct or 
at Duck Harbour. He also spoke of plans for a covered 
rink. Then followed some very good speeches by the 
coaches and captains of the other teams, dwelling mainly 
on the fact that although all games were not won, the 


teams all had fun and showed the spirit of co-operation 
and drive which characterizes T.C.S. teams. 

Hubie Sinclair, last year's Head Prefect and an out- 
standing athlete, brought a very enjoyable evening to a 
suitable close by telling us how important athletics were 
after we leave School and how necessary it is to try out 
for sports as there is no compulsion at University to do so. 

Our thanks are due to Mrs. Wilkin and her staff for 
providing such a good meal. The dinner was one of the 
most successful in many years. 

Founder's Day 

On May 1, the School celebrated its eighty-second 
anniversary. Because of bad weather the additional half- 
holiday was postponed until the following Saturday, when 
all morning classes were cancelled. 

A special Founder's Day Service was held in the 
Chapel at night. 

Half Holiday 

On Monday, May 5, the School was given a half holi- 
day in honour of two Old Boys, William Mood and Peter 
Southam, who have recently visited the School with their 
brides. As the weather was poor, the boys were given 
leave to see the "Jolson Story" which was showing at the 
town theatre. 


8.30 Everything haywire — no sign of orchestra — cor- 
sages arrive en masse, resulting in a general free- 
for-all. Bill Cox and Herbie Mclntyre lose theirs, 
and Nev Conyers finds he has two (?). 


8.35 Scott Fennell (in overalls and covered with grease) 
telephones Oshawa to find lost Orchestra. 
Hank Hyde wanders around in a fog (dust maybe). 
First studs are lost. 

Loud moaning from Bethune bottom flat, — Jack 
French testing vocal chords in preparation for an- 
nouncer's job. 

8.40 Scotty (still in overalls, but minus some grease) 
gives up on phone and resorts to shouting: 
"Have you got an extra . . . . ? ? " 
"Could I borrow your ....??" 
Mrs. Scott has tied her eighth bow tie of the even- 
ing. Mr. Scott is having trouble too. 

8.45 Scotty (have you no other clothes?) so unnerves 
Bill Brewer by talk of what will happen if orchestra 
doesn't come, that he ties his finger into his tie. 
Hank in shower suddenly realizes he is supposed to 
be in the receiving line. 
Mrs. Scott is on number thirteen. 
Mr. Scott is still having trouble. 
Procession to J.S. begins. 

8.50 Scotty (those overalls — poor Ann!) with visions of 
dancing to impromptu chorus of "Shanty in Old 
Shanty Town", grows hysterical. 
Hank begins to shave, — oh, oh, he didn't want that 
chin anyway. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Scott give up. 
Rufus looks more and more like somebody else. 

8.55 Scotty — the orchestra is here — passes out with 
weak "You know, I really couldn't care less". 
The first couples arrive. 

Frenchy (by now in very good voice) starts an- 
Hank makes a valiant effort to save his face. 


9.00 Band strikes up right on time. 
Hank looks for Band — Aids. 
Reception committee has hands full! ! 
Frenchy's voice begins to crack (what, already?) 

9.30 Reception committee folds up. (Literally). 
Hank arrives. 
Some people begin to throw their weight around ! ! 

10.00 The lights dim. 

Hank stops bleeding. 

12.00 Lights dimmer still. 

Looks like this is going to be one of the best dances 
in years. 

The Headmaster gives his much awaited exhibition 
on the drums — really on the bit tonight. 

2.00 a.m. Not the last dance already? Ah come on, Mr. 
Stevens, just one more! ! What was that? Union 
says no ? . . . . Oh, all right, but make this one good. 

2.15 Good-night. 

2.25 ? ! ! 

2.30 Good-ni . . . ght. 

Yes, the dance this year was undoubtedly a great suc- 
cess. It was too bad that so few Old Boys could get down 
but we were glad to see that Bunny and Mac Austin, Bill 
Long and Don Hogarth decided to let exams look after 
themselves for one night. 

The Hall and especially the sitting-out rooms were 
wonderfully decorated, and much credit and our thanks 
are due to Hyde, Paterson i, Payne and Macklem ii for 
their work on the Mexican Murals and decorations in the 
other rooms. 

Our special thanks must also go to Miss Wilkin and 
Mrs. Crowe for all the work they did with decoration and 
fixing up of the Junior School, while Mrs. Wilkin and her 
staff deserve much credit for the wonderful supper they 
served for such a large crowd. 






Ever-present in our minds since last June when the 
first ground was turned has been the new tuck shop. The 
absent stares from the B & C windows focused often on 
the scene of activity across the campus. The small groups 
wandering towards tuck were usually seen to stray off 
course to investigate the latest row of bricks or examine 
the intricate wiring. For a year the School waited for, and 
talked about, the new tuck, while on the edge of the foot- 
ball field a fine new school building arose. On Monday. 
March 17, Miss Fick and Mrs. Wright finally threw open 
their doors to boys of the School. 

Inside they found a huge, clean room with an open 
fire-place at one end. Two large bay windows looked out 
on the campus. Laurentian resort-type pine furniture was 
scattered generously around the room. A comfortable 
sofa formed the centre of a group around the fire-place 
while the rest of the room contained tables and chairs. The 
savoury smell of hot, home-cooked dishes emerged from 
the kitchen and floated towards the stained wooden beams 
of the ceiling. Abundant electric light poured from attrac- 
tive fixtures. Gay new plates were passed back and forth 
across the spacious counter. 

What the boys did not see was the large bright kitchen 
roughly twice the size of the ordinary room at school. 


complete with stove and oven, sink, two-door refrigerator 
and unlimited cupboards. At the back and at one end of 
the buildings are Miss Kick's and Mrs. Wright's living 
quarters composed of two bedrooms, bath and living room. 
In the basement are storage rooms and the oil furnace. 
Battleship linoleum covers all floors. 

With their ration-board permits, Miss Fick and Mrs. 
Wright expect to feed the boys with substantial, home- 
cooked dishes. Buttered toast, hot sandwiches, home- 
made buns and cake, milk shakes and tea will always be 
there. When the snow melted, a flag-stone terrace appear- 
ed in front of the low brick building. The building itself is 
early- American and has a New England look about it. A 
four-sided clock is to be mounted in the cupola on the roof. 

The appearance of this new building on our campus 

is another step in the history of the School and we all 

realize how it will prove its worth many times over during 

the years to come. Our sincere thanks go to its generous 

donors, Mr. and Mrs. Blair Russel of Montreal, who gave 

it in memory of their son, Hugh. 

— J. A. Powell, Form VIA. 


The workmen of the School, the men behind the scenes 
who are often taken for granted, are nevertheless, a real 
part of the School, and we feel that the School and readers 
of the Record will be interested to know more about them. 

Edwin Nash, dean of the School's workmen, is super- 
mtendent, and is in charge of the work of the men around 
the School. Starting as a boy, he worked for ten years in 
the garden of the vicarage at Froyls, England, and then 
took a course in motor mechanics. When Dr. Orchard 
then asked him to come out to Canada, he came with the 
intention of staying two years, but that has now stretched 
out to some twenty-seven years of valuable work. At first 
he looked after the Lodge and the garden, and saw service 


through the fire, and the exile to Woodstock. About 1940 
he became Superintendent and as such is in charge of the 
grounds, the buildings, the barns, and supervises the work 
of all the men outside. Probably his greatest achievement 
has been keeping in running order the School's old Ford- 
son tractor, now some thirty years old and which the 
School acquired in 1933 for some $75. And this is all the 
more remarkable because it was never kept under cover. 
Every week from the end of April till the beginning of 
October for the last fourteen years it has mowed the ten 
acres of the School campus. This year the jeep was added 
to the School's equipment, and because of its numerous 
uses and time-saving qualities Edwin feels it is ideal for 
his work. In fact one might say that he is in love with 
the jeep. It can be used for mowing, snowshovelling, and 
as a light truck for all the odd jobs that are necessary 
around such an institution as this. Edwin's job is an all 
year round one, for the whole summer is spent in painting 
buildings, the spring and fall in mowing and rolling lawns, 
the winter in clearing snow from roads and rinks, and be- 
sides these there are always a million and one other odd 
jobs to be done. Because he is an expert carpenter, pain- 
ter, motor mechanic, gardener, Edwin Nash is indeed an 
invaluable superintendent, but in addition he is always 
calm and willing to help day in and day out. 

On December 26, 1924, T.C.S. received a Christmas 
present in the form of Ben Cole. Previously he had work- 
ed for four years in coal mines in Newcastle-on-Tyne and 
then served from 1912-24 in the Royal Marines. He was 
on H.M.S. Cochrane in the Battle of Jutland and saw ser- 
vice at Murmansk and Petsamo. After the war he served 
in the Ramillies and the Valiant before coming to Canada 
and T.C.S. as second cook, at a time when the Junior School 
only employed men in the kitchen. In June, 1925, he left for 
a short time but returned as general handyman in April 
1927. and since 1930 he has been happy as janitor in the 
confines of Bethune House. Always very interested in the 


boys, he had been closely connected with the Cadet Corps. 
In the fall of 1928 he started teaching the new boys rifle 
drill because there were some Cuban boys who only spoke 
Spanish. When military studies were introduced in 1940 
he taught knots and lashings and gas training, and for two 
years he took an interesting course in naval gun drill. In 
looking back over the period he has spent here, Ben recalls 
many amusing incidents. Among them is the mystery of 
the disappearance of the clapper from the Chapel bell in 
1927. Three days later, the culprit unseen by anyone re- 
placed it, and to this day Ben has wondered who it was. 
(Perhaps some Old Boys know more about this). Ben also 
has vivid memories of the confusion during the fire. Now 
that he looks back over it, some of the incidents were very 
silly, though they were serious enough at the time. For 
instance, he recalls that the town's horse and buggy fire 
engine raced up the hill, only to knock one of its wheels 
off against one of the trees at the top. Ben remembers a 
skeleton that hung in Mr. Lewis' lab at Woodstock, which 
rattled with an eerie effect at night. During his long ser- 
vice at T.C.S. Ben has always taken a keen interest in the 
boys themselves and has always got along with them very 

Back in 1913, when Mr. Ketchum was still a boy at the 
School, Alf. Gustar was driving horse drawn livery car- 
riages for Lingard's in Port Hope. He had previously been 
in the army for twelve years, having fought with the 30th 
Hussars in the Boer War and he represented his regiment 
at King Edward's coronation. In 1914 he re-enlisted in 
the 4th Battery of the Canadian Artillery and served for 
four year in France and Belgium where he was a Rough 
Rider, which involved horse-breaking for the army. In 1921 
he returned to Canada and worked at Gananoque as section 
foreman on the railway for six years. There he continued 
his equine interests and drove trotting horses in many 
races in that district. He then returned to Port Hope and 
worked for a number of years in the Sanitary works. In 


1939 he came to T.C.S. and took up sanitary work of a dif- 
ferent kind, first as Junior School janitor and three years 
later as Brent House janitor. Now as janitor of the class 
room block, he looks after the seats of learning. 

Mr. Tappendem, who does carpentry work in Mr. 
Grace's shop and helps with the grounds, came to T.C.S. 
three years ago, after a long period of service in girls' 
schools. After spending the last war as a Gunner in the 
Artillery, and then working in Union Bank in Winnipeg, he 
came east in 1920 to Montreal to take charge of the 
grounds and gardening at the Trafalgar Girls' School. 
After thirteen years in such pleasant surroundings he paid 
a short visit to England. Returning just before the war, 
he was at the Edgar Cramp School for Girls in Montreal, 
before coming to T.C.S. Surprising as it may seem, he 
finds that T.C.S. is quite a change from a girls' school but 
he declares that the boys are no worse. 

Little is seen around the School of Earl Lowthian, 
who with George Campbell looks after maintenance, be- 
cause so much of his time is spent in the boiler room, but 
he has been at T.C.S. since he left Port Hope High School 
in 1936. For the first four years he worked in the Lodge 
and the Junior School under Edwin but since then he has 
been in the boiler room. This winter he left for about four 
months to work in the Cosmos Chemical plant in Port Hope 
but recently the prodigal son returned to T.C.S. and what 
he now looks upon as home. Just as he feels that the 
School has become a part of him, so has he become a part 
of the School. 

Of all the men around the School George Campbell 
has probably had the most interesting career. He left 
school at the age of twelve to go to sea, and his first 
voyage was on a sailing ship to Australia. When he re- 
turned, his family prevailed upon him to stay at home and 
so he took his apprenticeship shipbuilding on the Clyde- 
side. He became a marine engineer on merchant ships and 
later served on many C.P.R. ships. Without a doubt T.C.S.'s 


most widely travelled member, he has been all over the 
world, to Australia, New Zealand, the Orient, Japan, China, 
India, the Near East, Egypt, East and West Africa, the 
Mediterranean states and many others. In fact Norway, 
Denmark and Portugal are about the only nations he has 
not visited. Travel broadens man's outlook, and it has 
given George a very comprehensive education, despite lack 
of schooling, as those who have talked with him will 
realize. After a while, however, he found that the con- 
stant movement of a seaman's career leads to a very dis- 
rupted life and he settled down to become a stationary 
engineer working in various factories and institutions. 
Since he came to T.C.S. ten years ago as Chief Engineer in 
charge of the heating, electrical, and plumbing systems, 
and of general maintenance, the School has seldom suf- 
fered inconveniences by their failure. Always an ardent 
supporter of T.C.S. football and hockey teams, he rarely 
misses a home game and often travels afar to see the boys 
in action. 

These are the men behmd the scenes whom we see 
plodding on with the maintenance of the School everyday 
but whom we do not often get the chance to come to know.

cricket 1914-1947 by Mr. Grace in the near future) .

"Stop yoah darn foolin' in the ranks or I shall 'ave to 
soak you beggahs." These same words have been uttered 
many times in our gymnasium and you can bet your 1409 
or Short Magazine Lee-Enfield Mark Three Star that every 
boy that has been to T.C.S. will remember those words. 
The man who shoots that line — that's right, it's Captain 
"Sam" Batt, our physical instructor, probably better known 
as the man who made the weight of the pull-through 


Mr. Batt came to the School in 1921 after four years 
of teaching at R.M.C. In those days he was a rip-roaring 
Sar' Major. Now as a captain he has cut his ripping to a 
minimum, but he still roars with the best of them. He 
came originally from England having taken an Army 
course at Aldershot and attended a Musketry School at 
Hythe in Kent. The experience gained from this schooling 
has proved invaluable, for he has handed on this knowledge 
to the boys of the School. The result of his teachings 
was an exceptional Trinity College School war record. 
Next to the boys themselves, the credit for this splendid 
effort should go to Captain Batt. 

We all know what marvellous gymnasts he has turned 
out, but it is not generally known that he himself was an 
outstanding athlete. Modesty is the reason for this but we 
managed to pry out of him a few of his feats in the world 
of sports. He was a boxer of no mean calibre having been 
runner-up for many years in the Southern Command of 
the Army while in England. At the Olympic games of 
1908 he was on the British Army Gym. Eight which came 
third that year. 

The fact that he himself was such a good athlete and 
fine soldier accounts for the fact that he has turned out 
boys with the same admirable qualities. To illustrate how 
much he has done for the School we must go back twenty- 
six years to when he first came. In those days the cadets 
were poorly disciplined. They used to drill in the orchard 
and hence more time was devoted to apple tossing than 
marching. Also, they wore white uniforms that got dirty 
very easily. To quote Mr. Batt himself, "They looked like 
a flock of street cleaners". In 1921 the School had no 
gym. team. At that time a boy standing on his hands was 
greeted with roars of applause and considered a candidate 
for the circus. The first Bigside gym. competition ever 
held had the same exercises as the Littleside competition of 
to-day. Such was the state of the School at the arrival 
of Mr. Batt. Five years later in 1926, he took the School 


to Toronto to take part in a competition that included 
physical training, cadet work and gym. team work-outs. 
Thirteen cups were offered and T.C.S. took twelve of them 
and came a close second in the thirteenth. Since that 
time some outstanding gymnasts have been coached by 
him. The most notable team was that which won the Cana- 
dian Championship at the Canadian National Exhibition. 
The boys on this team were Acton Fleming, Will Mood, 
"Stal" Armstrong. 

Shooting at the School has also undergone a gigantic 
change thanks to the work of Mr. Batt. He was an expert 
rifle shot himself having numerous awards to his credit, 
the most prized being four silver and five bronze medals 
given by the King. He introduced markmanship to the 
School you might say. This, however, had dire con- 
sequences at first. The boys liked shooting so much that 
they got their own rifles and proceeded to practice their 
shots by picking off all the telephone insulators that were 
around the School. This met with decided disapproval 
and from that day private guns have been banned in the 
School. When he came to the School Captain Batt found 
a makeshift rifle range under the gym. The boys used to 
hang their gym. clothes along the side of the range. This 
inevitably led to riddled gym. kits, as the boys considered 
the white ducks and shirts much better targets than the 
regular ones at the other end. But that was back in 1921. 
Now-a-days we have a modern rifle range and super accur- 
ate marksmen who have won for Mr. Batt the Empire 
Challenge Shield and other trophies of importance. The 
Old Boys will probably maintain that the old targets were 
much better anyway. 

However, Captain Batt himself would rather talk 
about the amusing experiences and the boys of the past, 
than himself. One of his best stories has to do with the 
School bell. It seems that one of the boys removed the 
clapper from the big bell, so that it wouldn't sound when 
rung. Thus when the deaf jainitor started to ring the bell 



to bring them in from the playing fields to supper, the boys 
failed to respond. The janitor, not realizing what had 
happened, kept on pulling the rope for another ten minutes. 
After a quarter of an hour of this, one of the staff, now 
utterly confused, rushed up to the bell tower and finally 
the mystery of the soundless bell was solved. Captain 
Batt has many stories to relate such as these and they all 
go to prove that he has a fine sense of humour, and also 
show how much he enjoys every part of School life. 

It is no exaggeration to say that Mr. Batt has devoted 
every spare minute to bettering T.C.S. His every action 
has been to do something for the boys in the School. Dur- 
ing his career at Trinity he has coached seven Ontario 
gymnastic champions, one Junior Canadian Champion, 
"Stal" Armstrong, and one Canadian Champion Gym. 
Team. In short, he has an enviable record as an instruc- 
tor and as a fine soldier. The boys of the School will never 
forget "Sam" Batt nor the service he has done for the

For perhaps the first time in the history of the School 
the Easter play started on schedule. The gym. was crowd- 
ed to overflowing and after a brief introduction by the 
Headmaster the curtain rose on the Dramatic Society's 
presentation of "The Queen's Husband" by Robert Sher- 

The setting of "The Queen's Husband" is a mythical 
island kingdom in the North Sea and the time is in the 
early thirties. The whole action takes place in the king's 
office, the scenes for which were very well painted by Mr. 
Key's art classes. The king, on whom the whole action of 
the play hinges, is shown in the first act as a meek, quiet 
man who, during his whole reign, has let his overbearing 
wife and reactionary premier, General Northrup, run him 
and his country. When Northrup's stupidity precipitates 
a revolution, the king quietly takes control and stops it. 
Again in the third act, when Northrup fails to carry out 
his promises to the people, the king dissolves Parliament 
and dismisses the Prime Minister. At the end of the play 
we see the king quite ready to let the queen take over 

Interest is also centred round the romance of Princess 
Anne with Granton, the king's secretary. Up until the 
last moments of the play, Anne is to be forced to make a 
diplomatic marriage with the objectionable Prince William 
of Greek. At the last moment the king spoils all the queen's 
plans for the wedding by marrying his daughter to her 
true lover and sending them off to South America. 


Mr. Dale and Ron Watts directed the play and seem 
to have done an almost perfect job of casting and coach- 
ing the actors. Much of the play's great success was due 
to their untiring efforts. G. R. Campbell iii seemed to live 
the part of the weak and brow-beaten king who finally 
rises to his responsibilities. His reliability on the stage 
and his excellent acting were major factors in making the 
play run smoothly. Lawson i as Northrup played the part 
so well that by the end of the play he was despised by the 
whole audience. His acting of Northrup's disappointment 
when, in the last scene, all his hopes are dashed to the 
ground, could not have been done better. Ian Bovey made 
an exceptionally pretty princess and Geoffrey Taylor an 
ardent lover. Together they carried off successfully what 
were probably the hardest scenes in the play! D. Doheny 
was from start to finish the stiff-backed, overbearing 
queen that he was supposed to be. 

R. Butterfield i as Fellman was a forceful progressive, 
and aside from acting, he also did a great deal of work 
as property manager. Laker, the anarchist, as played by 
D. Rhea, was as fiery as his red hair and moustache sug- 
gested. K. Newcomb portrayed the obsequious politician 
and P. Pangman, as the objectionable and conceited Prince 
William, was so funny that he almost stole the show. 
Elliot as Phipps, the king's butler and opponent at chec- 
kers, and Bermingham as Petley, whose chief job was to 
ensure that the coast was clear for the king, were two very 
colourful footmen. Chester and Macklem ii played two 
very frightened ladies-in-waiting while Timmins as Major 
Blent, O.C. the palace guard, with Taylor ii and Woods i 
two stalwart hussars, were very colourful and dashing 
men-at-arms. All these last parts are comparatively small, 
but it is through these characters that the play obtains 
that added "something" that makes the difference between 
an excellent play and a mediocre one. They all deserve a 
great deal of praise. Much credit is also due to the un- 
derstudies who had an arduous and inglorious job of 


memorizing leading roles "just in case". Thompson ill 
did a very good job as sound effects man and is to be con- 

There was a reception in the Hall after the play for 
members of the cast and the many visitors. 

The School is much indebted to all the ladies who 
assisted with make-up and costumes and to all those who 
helped behind the scenes. 

The play was the result of many weeks of hard work 
by the members of the cast, the Dramatic Society, and 
Tom Lawson, its president. It was a great success in 
every way.

O r 6 AT t S 

Upper Canada College at T.C.S. 

The first, and unfortunately, probably the only inter- 
school debate at the School this year, was held in the Hall 
on Friday night, April 25, against a three man team from 
Upper Canada College. It was the first of a home and home 
contest and the motion was "Resolved that Modern Science 
has been an obstacle rather than an impetus to human 
progress". Parliamentary procedure had previously been 
agreed upon and T.C.S. represented the Government and 
U.C.C. the Opposition. 

The Upper Canada team was officially welcomed by 
the Headmaster after which T. W. Lawson, president of 
the T.C.S. Debating Society, who was acting as speaker, 
explained the rules of the debate which he then opened. 

G. A. Payne the first speaker for the Government 
gave several quite good examples to illustrate that science, 
like a cancerous growth, develops at the expense of our 
moral and physical progress, while in reply, T. Crerar, the 
first speaker for the Opposition, demonstrated how science 
had reduced the hardships and supplied all the material 
comforts of our lives. 

The second speaker for the Government, D. Campbell, 
showed by reference to certain current books and movies, 
that the misuse of these developments of science has done 
much to lower our moral standards. R. Johnston coun- 
tered for the Opposition by showing that science has made 
possible universal education and the great advances in 


medicine which have been realised during the past few 

The third speaker for the Government, H. A. Hyde, 
spoke well and humorously, pointing out how science has 
given mankind a selfish materialistic outlook on life. D. 
Coayes, the last speaker for the Opposition, although 
speaking in a low tone, showed by several good examples 
that scientific progress was a good way to keep us going 
ahead mentally and physically. 

After a short rebuttal by Payne, Messrs. Ryan, Bonne- 
ville and Wilson, all of Port Hope, who had very kindly 
agreed to act as judges, retired to consider their decision 
and the debate was thrown open to members of the House. 

Shortly before the judges returned, a division of the 
House was made which indicated a 51-44 majority for the 
Government. Mr. Ryan, however, speaking for the judges, 
after a few comments on the debate itself, awarded the 
decision to our visitors on the Opposition. 

T.C.S. at Upper Cianada College 

The following evening, Saturday, April 26, the same 
motion was debated at U.C.C. but with different teams and 
Trinity taking the negative while Upper Canada upheld the 

Once again the debate, which was held in the U.C.C. 
library, was close and quite well attended. George Con- 
nell of U.C.C. acted as chairman and the judges were R. 
Watts of T.C.S. and J. Connolly of U.C.C. 

The debate was opened by G. Norman for the affirma- 
tive, who, after repeating the motion "Resolved that mo- 
dern science has been an obstacle rather than an impetus 
to human progress", showed that man is a slave of his 
machines. He was followed by P. Alley of T.C.S.. who 
pointed out that science has forced us to go ahead in all 
fields, a point which he illustrated by several good ex- 


Hugh Rowan, speaking second for the affirmative, 
pointed out that science had brought about the Industrial 
Revolution which robbed man of the measure of security 
which he enjoyed under feudalism. J. Barton (T.C.S.) re- 
plying for the negative showed how modern science by in- 
creasing man's leisure time has given him the opportunity 
for moral and spiritual progress. 

Walter Massey (U.C.C.) who spoke third for the 
affirmative, pointed to science as the cause of the change 
in wars from small battles involving only a few to mass 
slaughter. The last speaker for the negative, Dwight 
Fulford (T.C.S.) showed in a very witty speech that ad- 
vancing science is providing modern civilization with a 
challenge which must be met. 

After a short rebuttal by Norman (U.C.C), the 
judges retired and the debate was thrown open to discus- 
sion. After almost three-quarters of an hour the judges 
returned and following a few critical remarks J. Connolly 
awarded the decision to T.C.S., although a vote of the 
spectators favoured the affirmative. 

All things considered, these two debates with Upper 
Canada were a great success. We feel that the standard 
of the speeches was very high but that a little more time 
might have been spent on effective rebutting and that in 
future it might be a fairer test of speaking ability if neither 
side read their speeches. 



Port Hope, Ont., 
May 10, 1947. 
Dear Joe, 

I've got a lot to tell you Joe. To-day I visited T.C.S. 
for their Inspection. The cadets and the gym. were good, 
but there's something else concerning the School that I 
want to tell you about. 

No doubt you've heard of the great scientist at T.C.S., 
C. Scott. Well to-day I visited his great collection of scien- 
tific wonders. You should have been here to see them. 
I've never seen anything like it before! These exhibits are 
kept in a building they call Brent House; they should call 
it the Building of Marvels. If you ever get the chance, 
Joe, make sure to come and see them. 

Without a doubt one of Mr. Scott's best exhibits is his 
perpetual motion machine. You know all through the ages 
scientists have been trying to invent such a thing but they 
all met with failure. Men like Bernoulli, Orffyraeus, Leo- 
nardo da Vinci, and Sir William Congreve tried, but none 
of them succeeded. But here at last is the solution. Around 
T.C.S. it apparently goes by the code name of Rufus. You 
should see it in action, it never stands still. To take care 
of this machine and the whole collection, which is quite a 
tall order, there is a special curator. A modest unassuming 
chap, they call him Humble Harry. 

Among these exhibits are several examples of an 
amazing species of animal that Scott, the scientist, has de- 
veloped from the human species. In these the mental 
power of the homo sapiens is combined with the strength

Standing: — Mr. Batt, W. M. Cox, M. F. Thompson, R. S. Jarvis (Cape),

of a dinosaur. The chief example of this achievement is 
Bob Jarvis. These combinations of brain and brawn have 
been developed in three sizes, the large, the medium, and 
the peanut sizes. In the latter class are Brooks and Panet. 
who, it is rumoured, will soon fight it out for the World 
Atom Weight (or is it Molecular Weight?) Boxing Crown. 

Another truly amazing machine, which always seems 
to be on the verge of collapse but which somehow manages 
to stagger on because of the work of the maintenance de- 
partment under Miss Ryan, is McDowell. Yet with all its 
frailty, this gadget has such a delicate sense of timing that 
it can compete with stronger animals that Mr. Scott has 

This House of Marvels will also make great contri- 
butions to the music of the world. One need only listen 
outside the showers in the early hours of the morn- 
ing, to cast away all doubts. When I approached the build- 
ing, what I had first mistaken for a fog-horn turned out to 
be the golden-throated Sinatra Stewart. It is reported 
that his "super-tone" vocal cords are of an entirely new 
design, and I am inclined to believe this. Of more ortho- 
dox design are the cords of Wilf Curtis, who rumour has 
it is setting new precedents in the art of being a Romeo! 
Unfortunately I cannot testify whether that is correct, Joe. 

In another great exhibit were two great computation 
instruments, which evidently are among the most accurate 
in existence. Mr. Scott evidently has two quite different 
models. One, the "Jasper" model, quite often seems to do 
things backwards, but it always manages to achieve the 
desired results. It is without a doubt truly remarkable 
and nowhere else may a similar machine be seen. The 
other model, of equal accuracy, is more simple and 
straightforward, and has the trade mark "Williamson". 

Slow reacting people will be interested to hear that in 
another exhibit are two special fast moving machines, de- 
signed to teach people to have quicker reflexes. The cura- 
tor assured me that as such, these two machines brought 


from Hamilton, have proved a great success. The flicking 
machines are of two types, "the Wood", and "the Drynan." 

Another development among the exhibits, of highly 
scientific note, are the two robots that Mr. Scott has de- 
veloped. One of these, a gaunt-looking machine is the 
most silent of all contraptions I saw, but in its own way it 
smoothly accomplishes its work, especially on the playing 
fields. It is in contrast to the perpetual motion machine 
which is constantly emitting a roar to the rhythm of 
"Rowdy Dow". The other robot is the steamroller type 
and is recommended for football coaches. If Mr Scott 
were to mass produce such robots he would probably ad- 
vertise them as "so round, so firm, so fully packed, so free 
and easy on the draw. Spelled backward it is ERYTNICM". 
If you're ever coaching a football team, Joe, be sure and 
get one. 

Another display I saw showed two great fish-eating 
birds of the Paynus Mexicanus and the Peewitticus Mexi- 
canus species. Birds with such widespread range are rare, 
but these are said to hunt fish from the waters of the 
northern Ganaraska, even to the tropics. About the only 
fish they refuse to consume appears to be the "dead" 
species served at T.C.S. on Tuesdays and PYidays. 

Well, Joe, I could go on forever describing the numer- 
ous marvels I saw to-day, but paper these days is rationed, 
so I'll stop for now. But remember, if you ever get the 
chance, visit "The House That Scott Built." 



(Editor's Note: Dear Joe, there was one machine for- 
gotten in the above, an amazing automatic turner-outer of 
Brent House Notes. The unbelievable fact about it is that 
the number of watts it runs on is only one ! ) 



In the days of 'forty-six 

With their shovels and their picks 

Sixty men or so were working in a mine 

Bethune Bros, was its name 

And it had no little fame 

As the job where shortest hours were nine to nine. 

Now the manager was Bill, 

When he bought "the old red mUl" 

All the folks around said he would surely fail. 

'Til he hired his helpers three 

Frenchy, Yan and Neville C. 

To keep order and to start a local jail. 

There were others in his crew 

Who had names that people knew 

Guys like Scotty, Nort and Tony Wells (the short) 

Geoffrey Taylor, Stephen, Noge 

And a camera man named Bogue 

All these hombres and some more did he import. 

In the Bethune camp that year 

Were some who hadn't fear 

And among them was John Hughes of fishing fame. 

There was lanky Stuart Bruce 

(He who walked so free and loose) 

And it was from London city that he came. 

There were men both lean and lank, 

There was Armour, known as Tank, 

There was even Richard Carson from the west. 

The Bermudians were there 

Getting in most people's hair 

And explaining why they thought Bermuda best. 


From Alberta there had come 

Heard and Palmer, naming some, 

They had come to see if they could find a berth. 

Manitobans too had tried 

With Chuck Campbell as their g^ide 

To find jobs of which there really was a dearth. 

From the Rockies they appeared 

Some in Nova Scotia reared 

Yes, from coast to coast they came to join our crew. 

Some had come from Hamilton 

(Shorty Dame, to name but one) 

From all provinces, the Bethune name it drew. 

There were boys from Mexico 

(Still no "Gals in Calico!") 

From the North and South and East and West 

they flocked 
Van Straubenzees, Bronfmans too 
From all Canada they knew 
That our door is one where fortune always knocked. 

There were then some Boys at Brent 

Who were living in a tent 

And who couldn't seem to get a better job. 

They got lazy in their ways 

And around their tent a haze 

Seemed to gather, and our boys could hear them sob. 

"Oh, I wish that I were dead 

I can't seem to get ahead 

When I have to try and work in all this dirt. 

But if only I could change 

To the Bethune Bros, range 

I could change my ways and even change my shirt!" 


But these men were (sorely) stuck 

They had really had bad luck 

Being put in Brent before they had a chance. 

For they couldn't make the change 

To the Bethune Bros, range 

Which would certainly their whole lives much enhance. 

How these wretches moaned and cried 

When they saw their Harry Hyde 

Just "a settin' and a rockin' " all the day. 

While the Bethune miners worked 

All the Brent men sat and shirked 

All their duties while collecting little pay. 

I must really end this tale 

And I hope I can prevail 

On all those who are out looking for a place 

If you have, for work, a bent 

Do not look for it in Brent 

It's in Bethune that these miners set the pace.

M I I 


The outbreak had started in the north. It was the 
fault, no doubt, of some careless trapper who had forgotten 
to smother his fire. But whatever the cause, the strong 
north wind had carried the fire to the south, sweeping it 
across the territories like a great scorching brand, and 
leaving behind the ashes of a forest. In its path lay the 
charred and blackened remains of majestic trees, lying 
stiffly upon the ground and against one another, while only 
the tough birch remained standing, stark and grotesque, 
pointed at the sky. 

He was aroused from a light sleep at dusk by the 
crackling of the fire and the orange glow of the flames. 
He had only time to fill a pack with canned provisions, 
grab his surveying instruments, an axe and his rifle be- 
fore the fire had surrounded his shack. He did not look 
back, but he could see in his mind's eye a burning tree 
trunk crumbling across the roof, searing through the thin 
boards. As he ran he realized that he would never return, 
for territory that had been gutted and ruined by fire would 
never be used as a game park, and the survey company 
would send him elsewhere. It was only a mile to the dam 
where his canoe was lying, and he was half way there al- 
ready. At that point he had reached the top of a cliff and 
could see the old Indian river that flowed deep and very 
swift, full of rapids and falls. 


As he ran up, panting, to the dam, he suddenly realized 
what terrific damage would be done. To lose the territory 
was bad enough, but the countless teeming animals that 
roamed the country that was intended as a game reserve 
would all die in agony. The advancing fire would trap 
them against the river bank, and there they would huddle, 
anxious and trembling, until the fire came so close that 
they would slither down the steep banks to the powerful, 
gurgling current. As he stood thinking, he did not realize 
that the fire had changed direction, and was headed more 
towards the east, towards the dam. A few thin wisps of 
acrid wood smoke told him that he had better push off 
before the fire reached the river and cut off his escape. 

If only he had four or five men with him! Together 
they could have smashed free the planks in the dam that 
kept the current in check, and could have flooded the low- 
lands just north of the river with a foot or two of water, 
which would have saved most of the animals. He felt very 
deeply for the animals he knew so well. Burned alive! He 
could not put the thought of their horrible death from his 
mind. The fire was coming nearer, and he could hear the 
roar of the flames above that of the river, and see the 
bright red glow in the sky only about a quarter of a mile 
away. Suddenly a stag, crazed and burnt by the heat of 
the flames, bounded wildly through the woods, and leaped 
without hesitation into the river. The surveyor watched, 
knowing the animal didn't have a chance. The current 
pulled it down, and the stag disappeared before the river 
was lost to sight in the trees. 

This left him cold and determined. Grabbing his axe, 
he ran along the concrete shoulder of the dam and began 
slashing feverishly at the key boards in the sluice. The 
wood was tough and well water-soaked, and each stroke 
left the axe stubbornly imbedded in the plank. The fire 
was much closer now; great gusts of smoke flew over- 
head on the high wind, and the flames could be seen above 
the forest. He did not think of himself, for already the 


planks in the first sluice were rudely cut, and a great 
wave of water split the remaining boards and surged down 
the narrow river, flowing over the banks and flooding the 
low-lying land. He turned to the next sluice, fairly con- 
fident that the searing heat of the fire would not hurt him 
on the dam. 

The fire had reached the bank of the river when he 
finished cutting away the wood holding back the water in 
the second sluice. Then he began to feel the heat. Sweat 
stood out all over his face, and ran in little rivulets down 
his arms and between the big blue veins that ridged his 
hands. A burning brand fell close to him in the water and 
the hissing steam swirled up about his legs. But his fear 
and determination gave him strength, and the axe fell 
steadily, stroke after stroke, and the chips of wood flew 
off and were lost in the swirling water. The thick, choking 
smoke blew across the water and stung his eyes and throat. 
He ripped off his shirt and his straining torso glistened 
in the lurid light of the flames. The axe fell, the planks 
ripped, another great rush of water — he staggered towards 
the last sluice. He did not see or hear the great elm, 
flaming like a torch, waver at its great height and start 
slowly falling. There was a great shower of sparks and 
hissing of steam. The trunk of the elm lay resting across 
the thick concrete at the centre of the dam .... 

The next day a young fawn, only two months old, 
nuzzled about the high grass for food. It stood in a foot 
of water, and everywhere the ground seemed wet and 
marshy. To the young fawn, the water was a nuisance, 
but he had already forgotten the night of the fire and the 
hopeless terror he had felt before the great rush of water 
came from the hills and saved the land. As the sun rose 
higher, the yellow rays shone through the black trees on 
a black land.

It was an evening in May, eighteen hundred and 
twenty-four, in the brilliant, happy city of Vienna, v/here 
life was joyous and gay, where troubles and cares were 
forgotten, where love and wine ran rich and free, and 
where music, like an unceasing fountain, showered every- 
thing with its glorious sound. This great metropolis of 
gaiety was a dazzling display of sparkling lights, and the 
whole atmosphere seemed to bubble over with laughter 
and romance. The many concert halls, abundant in the 
best of music, were filled to capacity with an audience who, 
although frivolous and pleasure-seeking, were yet musical 
and critical, the entertainment therefore havmg to be of 
the finest quality to receive enthusiastic applause. One 
hall was especially packed, if that was possible, for al- 
though the work being played was having its premier per- 
formance, the composer and his compositions were well 
known and held in the highest esteem. Yet it was in that 
composer that both fame and tragedy walked hand in 
hand. Fame and tragedy .... a pathetic combination in 
a city where frivolity reigned supreme. 

There he sat, near the chorus, beating time with his 
hands for his own benefit, while the orchestra performed 
his ninth symphony — the great Choral Symphony. He was 
a little dwarf of a man, with a huge, ugly head that far 
out-proportioned his small, deformed body, and was cover- 
ed with a tangled mass of long hair, forming a fiery halo 
around his tragic face. His mouth was carved in a per- 
petual scowl and his deep-set eyes flashed venomously 
under his thick, knitted eyebrows like little, flaming glints 
of steel. His clothes were of the poorest quality, untidy, 
ill-fitting, ill-assorted and dirty. His entire appearance 
indicated only too clearly that he was eccentric and lonely, 
both uncared for and unloved. What a pitiful creature he 
seemed. Yet there sat one of the greatest musical 
geniuses the world has ever known, and to that world he 


gave all he had, everything he possessed ; his cheering hap- 
piness, his deep-moving sadness, his gruff humour, his 
stinging bitterness, his tender love, his overwhelming 
hatred, his triumphant hope, his tragic grief, his life. Such 
a man was Ludwig van Beethoven. 

What a magnificant piece of music, what unsurpassed 
greatness! At first hesitant and doubtful, it seemed to be 
searching for something, but soon it became decided, bold, 
determined. Then powerful and brutal, like some vast 
moving force, swift and vital. Now light and quick in the 
staccato utterance of the strings. Now lyrical and melodic, 
almost prophetic, in the lovely tones of the woodwinds. 
Now soft and tender, a flowing passage of ethereal beauty, 
signifying peace and love, something Beethoven himself 
never experienced. How serene it seemed, how calm and 
tranquil! Then suddenly the whole atmosphere was 
changed, the mist was violently swept away, and the air 
was filled with a feeling of joyous, triumphant, unparalleled 
happiness, all the orchestra pouring forth its jubilant 
praise. On and on the music raced, to glorious heights 
until the whole world seemed to burst into song, a mighty 
song of exaltation, resounding throughout the universe. 
An attribute to God himself! Then it was over and the 
audience rose as a body in a tremendous ovation to 
acclaim this mighty work. But the composer was still 
sitting there, beating time. One of the chorus, noticing 
him and realizing the cause, touched him on the shoulder 
and turned him towards the cheering crowd that he might 
see them applaud. He had been living in a wilderness of 
silence for over twenty years. He had given to the world 
music that he himself could never hear. That was Bee-

It is not to be forgotten, that short past 
Of which our country is so proud; 
Unlike those o'er the seas, it lies not fast 
In some dark corner hidden in a cloud 
Of bloody hatred, selfishness and vice, 
Not that; we cherish in our- hearts the dove 
Of peace; our people have made sacrifice; 
We share, and do not preach self-love. 

From out the Northland comes the wind, our flag's 

Its stirring, meanful colours shed their beams, 
A hopeful light to a dark world. 
We are the rudder to some millions' dreams; 
Remember this; add to the glory that is ours. 
Our light above this world of hunger towers. 

— D. McDonald, Form IVA. 


Everyone knows him; no one appreciates him. He is 
universally condemned by radio, press, and people as a 
public enemy, as a destructive nuisance, even as a killer. 
This is a grossly misguided conception, for he is a noble 
benefactor and a public hero — an unsung hero. Who is 
he? Why, none other than jolly old Jack Frost. 

Each year as the golden leaves at the peak of their 
magnificence begin to fade and fall from their frame of 
autumn skies, and as the summer sunsets transform them- 
selves from a deep mellow scarlet into a penetrating pur- 
ple, then a cool stillness fills the evening shadow, a calm, 
crystal chilliness that clears the night air of mosquitoes, 
inviting us to come out and be refreshed. 

The dim haze of the early morning reveals not the 
sparkling myriads of dancing dewdrops that each summer 


sunrise brought, but instead a velvet carpet of mossy 
whiteness. Here is old Jack in the crisp cloak that bears 
his name. 

Not many days later we awake to find the world 
buried in a blanket of thick softness. Like a doctor dressed 
in white, Jack emerges in all his splendour to set about his 
wintry work, his "operation". 

During the weeks that follow, Jack receives abuse and 
condemnation from all sides. People who do not have the 
initiative to get out and enjoy some fresh air curse him 
as the creator of another drudgery, shovelling sidewalks. 
This irks Jack as it would anyone, and he decides to give 
them some real work to do. So one night he gathers his 
forces together, and with a mighty sweep lashes down 
leaving in his wake a smothered earth. The press and 
radio scream of his villainy, of snowbound communications, 
of stranded settlements. Everyone joins the bandwagon 
crusading against Jack. 

But during this period we see his handiwork. During 
the long winter months his furry cloak has gathered all the 
filth, the dust, and the dirt of a year's breeding. The coat 
dissolves into water which joins the streams and rivers and 
flows away carrying with it all nature's waste and rubbish 
of the past year. The Spring arrives and the air is filled 
with freshness, newness, brightness. And Jack can sleep 
for another year, satisfied that he has done a good job, 
that he has rid the land of impurity and cleansed it. Jack 
Frost is certainly responsible in a great degree for the 
hardy, healthy race that the people of Canada have always

Language has many forms. There is the spoken, the 
written, the use of gestures, the expression of ideas by the 
eyes, and a language whereby the spirit communicates 
with spirit. All these forms are used by animals, though 
each kind may have its own variation or dialect. Animals 
experience the same emotions as man does — joy, grief, 
despair, hope, gratitude or fear, and these are all shown 
by some form of language. Animals have been called 
dumb, but the real fault lies in the fact that man until re- 
cently did not realize that animals had a language of their 
own, because he could not understand it. 

The animals themselves can understand each other, 
though a spoken word is not necessary. North American 
Indians of different tribes who did not know each other's 
speech, were able to converse without the use of a word, 
by a simple sign language learnt in a few hours. Animals 
likewise can understand each other. For instance, there is 
the story of two shepherds who met in a market-place in 
Scotland, each with his own dog. One was a sheep mur- 
derer and the other was a faithful respectable dog. They 
seemed to strike up such a remarkable friendship that their 
owners decided together to keep watch on them. That 
evening both dogs left their homes at the same hour, to 
join each other, and set off after sheep. These two dogs 
had enough language to understand each other, and the 
criminal had invited the other to join him and each had 
kept his appointment. They used the language of look and 
gesture without audible sounds, and had acted on the ideas 
thus conveyed. Nor is it uncommon for animals of dif- 
ferent species to talk and become friends. One often 
hears of such pets as dogs and cats becoming great friends. 

Man and animals can also communicate with each 
other, otherwise domestication would be almost impossible. 
Animals can make themselves imderstood by man much in 
the same way as babies do, though their language may not 


be intelligible. From the tone of a dog's bark we can in- 
terpret joy, anger, terror and other feelings, and it is the 
same with the neighing of horses, and the mewing of cats. 
They are as intelligible to us as the chattering of African 
Hottentots, and yet just because we do not understand 
their language, it doesn't mean the Hottentots haven't one. 
The animals have a language, but the only way we can 
understand it is by their inflection and gestures. Like- 
wise animals can understand human language, though they 
may not know the precise meaning of the words. Mr. 
Engleholm of the New York Zoological Park had a chim- 
panzee that would obey forty-three commands, and more- 
over, thirty-six of these were not accompanied by gesture 
and therefore it must have understood the meaning of the 
words used. In this case the ability was quite highly de- 
veloped, but animals in general possess it to a certain de- 
gree. Most domesticated animals like the dog, horse, ox, 
or sheep understand human language, though perhaps not 
the exact words. 

In olden days men believed that animals and men 
could not understand each other because they thought 
that animals had not language. To-day we imderstand 
that animals are subject to the same emotions and that 
they have a common language with man, in a universal 
brotherhood of living creatures.

Off THE 



Half an hour, half an hour, 

Half an hour longer. 
All in the valley of Death 

Waited one hundred. 
Then, — "Here comes the train! 
Grab for your gal," one said: 
Into the valley of Death 

Stampeded one hundred. 

"Look at my gorgeous date!" — 
Everyone falter'd: "Wait! — 
Who's that lovely girl? 

Someone has blunder'd." 
Their's not to make reply, 
Their's not to reason why, 
Their's but to look and sigh: 
Out of the valley of Death 

Came the two hundred. 

Maidens to right of them, . 
Maidens to left of them, 
Maidens in front of them, 
Chatter'd and flutter'd; 
Stormed at with news and talk 
Boldly, and slowly, walk; 


Up to the red-brick school, 
To the school on the hill 
Walk the two hundred. 

Flash'd all the dresses there, 
Flash'd as they pranc'd in air. 
Shuffling to the trumpets' blare, 
Dancing with prefects while 

All the School wonder'd. 
Outside go seniors' smokes. 
And then the smokers' jokes; 
Prefects and seniors 
Talk over cherry cokes, — 
Those young girls and boys 
Then they go back and dance 

With the two hundred. 

Maidens to right of them. 
Maidens to left of them, 
Maidens behind them, 

Chatter'd and flutter'd; 
Stormed at with news and talk 
Back from the school they walk 
Down to the waiting train. 
And thence to home again: 

Behind, still one hundred. 

When can they come again? 
We ask, but not in vain, 

We, the one hundred 
For they come back next year! 
Oh, give out with a cheer, 

Cheer that one hundred! 

— J. R. Ligertwood ('43-'45) 



Looking back upon the winter term one cannot help 
but regard it athletically as a very successful season, 
successful not only from the standpoint of games won, 
but. and this point is of prime importance, because of the 
number of boys engaged in the wide variety of sports 
offered by this School. 

There were five School hockey teams which along 
with Mr. Gwynne Timothy's Rabbit League provided a 
large number of boys with as much hockey as the very 
limited ice facilities would allow. This seems to be an 
ideal spot to consider the difficulties which the School has 
had in obtaining ice. The town rink which has been our 
standby since the School rink burnt down in 1928, was 
booked solidly and we were very lucky to obtain the few 
hours of ice which were allotted to us. As the town rink 
was used almost exclusively by Bigside this meant that the 
one good outdoor rink had to be used by four School 
teams and the Rabbit League. This meant that each boy 
had little actual skating. 

Two basketball teams were entered in C.O.S.S.A. 
groups and acquitted themselves very favorably. The 
squash team tied for the Little Big Four championship de- 
spite the fact that the School needs some new courts. The 
high standard of the Gym. work was maintained and the 
first team put on a show at McGill which according to all 
reports was excellent. There were many enthusiastic skiers 
and with the added impetus of the Bill Strong Memorial 
Trophy and outside competitions skiing has fully regained 
its prewar popularity. 

Sufficient time was set aside this year for the train- 
ing of the swimming team and Mr. Hodgetts was well 
rewarded for his time and trouble. The team won five of 
its six meets and did very well in the Little Big Four meet 
at Hart House. Swimming, according to medical authori- 
ties, is the best known exercise for the body and is used 


extensively in the cure of infantile paralysis. If this ex- 
cellent and very valuable sport is to be encouraged it will 
be necessary to ensure that a coach and a lengthy training 
period are again made available to the members of the 

The most drastic basketball defeat suffered by the 
School was on the night of April 14 in a contest which 
pitted the School's Romeos against a bevy of beautiful girls 
representing all parts of Ontario and Quebec. This array of 
all-stars completely overwhelmed the School's feeble re- 
sistance and after the first few seconds the outcome was 
never in doubt and the final score was 67-0 against us. 
Already plans are being laid for next year's return engage- 
ment but we fear (and hope) that the victors' margin will 
be increased considerably.

At Hart House, March 22 

A powerful Ridley College Swimming team over- 
whelmed its Little Big Four rivals to win the annual meet 
held at Hart House. Ridley more than doubled the scores 
of Upper Canada and Trinity who finished in a tie for 
second place with twenty-eight points while St. Andrew's 
finished last with nineteen points. A mistake in the diving 
originally put T.C.S. in second place but when the results 
were checked the error was discovered and the corrected 
score produced the tie. 

Sanborn who finished second in the 200 yards and 
Hughes, who finished second in the 100, were the outstand- 
ing swimmers for the School team which did very well 
against its older opponents. Two of the Ridley swimmers 
are being considered for the Canadian Olympic team which 
gives a fair indication to the brand of swimming displayed. 



At Port Hope, March 29: Won 64-54 

On Saturday, March 29, T.C.S. defeated the West End 
Y in the last swimming meet of the year. Eight new pool 
records were made and one was tied which gives evidence 
of the high quality of the swimming displayed. 

In the Senior Class the W.E.Y. had a definite edge. 
For the visitors. Fraser was outstanding scoring three 
firsts and breaking three pool records. However, our 
Juniors outclassed their opponents to win the meet. Drum- 
mond i was the best swimmer in these events scoring two 
firsts while breaking two records. The final outcome was 
in doubt until the last event, the diving, which T.C.S. won 
to give the School a 64-54 win.

At the time of writing it is difficult to believe that we 
are going to press as the "Spring" number of the Record. 
What Spring? At any rate they do tell us that the rain is 
"so good for the grass" which is such a comfort to us all. 
The trouble is that while the rain is busy at being good to 
the grass we are kept from putting it to the one use for 
which it is grown this term (in our opinion) — that is to say, 

A new game has made its debut in the gym. as a re- 
sult of the bad weather. Floor Hockey has been most 
enthusiastically received as a between-the-seasons sport. 
The J.S. have had a league of six teams and the competi- 
tion has been fast and furious. A number of the players 
have already picked up a considerable amount of skill in 
this fast indoor game. 

Our sincere thanks are due to David Jellett and Mrs. 
D. A. Campbell who have recently presented a number of 
books to our shelves. We are always very grateful for 
gifts such as these as they help to maintain the number 
and quality of books in the Library which undergo a con- 
siderable amount of wear and tear during a school year. 

The J.S. is proud of the fact that six out of the eight 
members of the First Gym. Eight are former members of 
the J.S. Congratulations to them. 


The School stands stark, and black against the sky, 
The westing sun glimmers; and by and by 
Streaks of eddying darkness slash the sky. 
The shimmering lights of day then fade and die.

Come out, pussy, come out again, 

All dressed in your soft gray fur. 

The soil is ready to grow you again, 

And when we listen we never hear your purr. 

And through the long winter, 
You have slept under the ground; 
And when the wind blows pussy, 
You come out, and look around. 

And now the spring has come, pussy. 

The sun is beaming down. 

And your buds swing round and round, pussy. 

Your buds are getting, Oh! so brown.

I like to see him galloping, 
Galloping down the road, 
He passes by the chirping cricket 
And the warted toad. 

He passes through the field 
Where the brook runs blue, 
He tramples over mud 
Where forests once grew. 

He never stops to look 
At the beautiful countryside, 
But just goes on faster 
Like any horse you ride.

It was Hearing the end of the holidays when one morn- 
ing we arrived at the Mint in Ottawa. The appointed card 
was shown and we were led through the gates into the 
main building. The man who was to show us around was 
past middle age and had been working there since 1906. 
He told us several experiences of his life there. Once when 
they had a new weighing clerk, while weighing in the even- 
ing, he found there was some fraction of an ounce less than 
there should be. No one was allowed to leave the plant 
(and it was also blamed on him) until he suggested they 
should weigh again. This time it was all there. They are 
very, very strict! 

First we were taken to the melting room where they 
melt the alloys for making medals. Then the alloyed 
"fillets" as they are called are thinned and made longer by 
being put through a pressing machine. Next the star 
shaped or round medals are cut, then imprinted and stamp- 
ed by a very heavy weight. (The man who showed us 
around told us that when he jEirst came, he had to imprint 
the pattern by hand). After this, they are dipped in 
chemicals, polished, and fitted with ribbon and other parts. 
It took fifteen miles of steel pin to hold the ribbon on the 
number of medals they had to make. Each one is about 
one and a half inches long. 

We were then shown where the coins of different 
value are made. Each coin represents a different feature 
of Canada. The cent, some maple leaves; the nickel, a 
Beaver ; the dime, the Bluenose craft of the Maritimes ; the 
quarter, the Canadian Elk; the fifty-cent piece, the Coat 
of Arms; and the silver dollar, the Canoe Men of Early 
Canada or the Parliament Buildings. 

We were shown how the coins are automatically 
weighed for three seconds each and dropped into either of 
three slots. The first slot for overweight, the second for 
normal coins, and the third for underweight coins. Even 


some of the coins that weigh the correct amount are 
faulty. An employee takes a handful of coins and drops 
them on a steel cylinder until one sounds bad and he throws 
it back. 

It happened that my uncle knew the manager of the 
Mint so he, very kindly, took us to see the solid bricks of 
gold — refined and unrefined — that come from every mine 
in Canada except those with a priority on refining it them- 
selves. He showed us how the molten gold is poured into 
the cold water and immediately turns to small coral-like 
pieces of gold. 

VN'hen we were about to leave, the manager showed 
us how the designer of the Canadian Elk on the back of the 
quarter had also drawn a Squirrel and a Beaver hidden in 

So ended a very interesting morning at the Royal 
Canadian Mint.

I lay in the sombre darkness and waited for the signal. 
My whole body was tensed, the blood rushed madly 
through my veins, and my heart stood still with expecta- 

Then, at last, the signal! How often had I rehearsed 
this call yet now it seemed like the cry of death calling me 
to my doom. 

Slowly I answered back through cold, clammy lips 
and, gripping my weapon of destruction, I joined my com- 

As we sneaked down the narrow passageway, every 
creak seemed to echo the warning voice of my heart which 
told me to turn back before it was too late. Every few 
steps we would pause to make sure that we were not fol- 
lowed. Then, up ahead we could make out the dim out- 


line of our destination. I stopped for a minute and quelled 
a sudden urge to turn back. 

Slowly our leader raised his arm. And then with a 
cry the dorm raid had begun.

It was midnight when we wandered down some stairs 
and entered a square room dimly lit by candles which 
flickered and occasionally sputtered out. 

In front of us was a long bar behind which were two 
Mexican boys who, to our surprise, ducked behind the bar 
when we entered. To our right was a Mexican girl doing 
a tango to the accompaniment of some music played by 
some old men. Behind us a bull fight was being staged 
in which the matador was getting the worst of it. Among 
the audience we could discern famous characters such as 
Dick Tracy, Blondie and Influence. At our left was a 
Mexican street with the usual old loiterers and junkmen 
hanging around. 

I got some coke and then we sat down at one of the 
comer tables from which we could view everything easily. 
The first thing that hit us was the smell of smoke which 
was floating around the ceiling in big wreaths. When the 
murmur of the other couples in the room had died down 
we could hear the low tones of Hasta Manana coming 
from the opposite comer. The multi-coloured crepe paper 
draped over the door made a weird noise which added to 
the mystery and charm of this delightful room. After we 
had finished our coke, we dragged ourselves away to the 
outside world where a dance was still going on. 

For those of you who are not familiar with the 
Hacienda, it is a remarkable transformation of the Senior 
School cocoa room into a restaurant, night club, and 
sitting-out room, all rolled into one. 

— P.G.C.K., Form IH. 



One morning in late October, Charlie Bowin, a French- 
Canadian guide and I started on a bear hunting trip which 
was to last us all of one day. We were to go to one of 
Charlie's "trapping cabins" and get rid of a bear which 
had wrecked the place. We got to the spot after two 
hours paddling and stole up to a location near the cabin 
where tall grass was growing. There we sat down and 

The day was fairly hot, and as we waited, swarms of 
mosquitoes came out and literally bit the hides off us. Still 
we resolved to wait for a while. We left the cabin late in 
the afternoon without a bear, but with plenty of pimples 
caused by those darling little insects. 

Night came. As Charlie and I were eating supper, 
Charlie suddenly yelled: "I t'ink I hear a bear." 

We rushed outside, Charlie with the flashlight and I 
with the gun. The light played around in the darkness, 
and focussed on a furry object. "There he is," Charlie 
said — "Shoot him!" I shot about three or four shells into 
that object, and Charlie started to laugh. 

"Ho, ha, ha, ha, that's only the rug," he managed to 
say between outbursts of laughter. Suddenly he cried 
"Look! a real one!" 

I didn't know what he meant, until I heard a growl. A 
bear came lumbering out of the forest, straight at Charlie. 

"Shoot him — quick!" he gasped. 

I put the gun to my shoulder and pumped seven shells 
into the bear before he finally collapsed. 

"Whew," said Charlie, "that was a close shave. Let's 
go and see him." After an inspection, he said: "Say, only 
one of the bullets hit 'im!" 

My legs suddently went weak. What luck!

The School congratulates H. L. Symons ('06-'12) on 
being awarded the Stephen Leacock Medal for humour. 
This is the first time the award has been made and the 
Committee chose Harry Symons as the recipient because 
of his story entitled "Ojibway Melody", a tale of summer 
life in the Georgian Bay. 

H. L. Symons was at T.C.S. from 1906 to 1912. He 
played on two championship football teams in 1910 and 
1911 and he captained the team in 1911. No one who saw 
him will ever forget his clever quarter-backing or constant 
will to win. He was on the First Hockey and First Cric- 
ket Teams and a member of the Gym. Team. He was ap- 
pointed a Prefect and he made many contributions to the 
columns of "The Record". Only a few years ago, in 1940, 
he wrote a most entertaining article on the old Tuck run 
by "Mammy" Philp. 

Mr. Symons has published another book "Friendship" 
which is a story of rural life and we wish him continued 
success as an author.

T.C.S. people everywhere were deeply sorry to hear 
of the death on April 1 of David Ogden Jones, one of our 
Senior Old Boys. 

Dr. Jones was at T.C.S. from 1873 until 1880 and only 
last year he was recalling those days when he was guest 
of honour at the Old Boys' dinner in Toronto. Dr. Jones 
was a Prefect for two years, Captain of the Cricket Team, 
a member of the Choir, and he won the Bronze medal. 


He studied medicine at Trinity College, Toronto, and 
later at the Royal College of Physicians in London. For 
sixty years he practiced medicine in Toronto and became 
one of the best known doctors in Ontario. In his early days 
he served as a Medical Officer in the Northwest Rebellion. 
Dr. Jones' two sons, Clarkson and Wallace, also came to 
T.C.S. The School sends its sympathy to all the members 
of Dr. Jones' family. 


We were shocked to hear of the death of Harry 
Fowlds on May 14. He had been showing a revolver to a 
friend and was accidentally shot in the head. 

Harry had been Warden of the United Counties of 
Durham and Northumberland and Reeve of Campbellford. 
He was married and has two young sons whom he hoped 
to send to T.C.S. 

The Juvenile Hockey Team of two years ago was most 
hospitably entertained by Harry and his wife after our 
game in Campbellford. The School sends its deep sym- 
pathy to Mrs. Fowlds and her family.

The unmistakable signs of the end of term — trmiks in 
the corridors, tickets in the bookroom, and all the other 
evidences of a changed atmosphere — which formerly 
brought such a feeling of release and excitement, are now 
perhaps viewed by some with a certain amount of sadness. 
Nor it is entirely due to the fact that sixth formers will 
not be leaving on Speech Day with the rest of the School, 
but will stay behind to write exams. And in spite of 


numerous pleas and injunctions by many not to devote my 
final editorial to leaving ("it's the same every year!"), I'm 
afraid that is what I am going to do. For as the days 
draw to a close and our long-awaited final departure from 
T.C.S. becomes more than an unattainable dream, we begin 
to see the School in its truer light. Just as it is said that 
when we are about to die our life passes before our eyes, 
so, I think, do we re-live all our experiences at T.C.S, when 
we fully realize that it is the end. 

The new-boy year comes first and what stands out in 
my mind is not so much the shoes I cleaned when fagging 
as the fun I had with the other new boys who were in the 
same boat. The comradeship of the new boys is one of the 
nicest experiences I have had at School. I don't think back 
on the Seniors and Prefects as monsters and bullies, but 
rather as challenges to my ingenuity to try to outwit them. 
(I should definitely not advise future new boys to try to 
sleep in a Senior's room, however!) 

My second year memories consist of those glorious 
days when we neither bossed nor were bossed and had all 
the freedom we dreamed of in our new-boy year. The 
honest truth, however, is that it was not as much fun or 
as invigorating as the new-boy year. I firmly believe that 
it is the second years who to a large extent make or break 
the School. The new boys keep in line of necessity and the 
privileges are such because of their responsibility and 
ability to aid the School. The real back-bone of the School, 
however, is the second years who are neither at the top 
of the heap nor at the bottom. If they spend their days 
with a chip on their shoulder and an attitude that they're 
out to get for themselves the best they can, however they 
can, the morale of the School is broken. For the School 
can only run smoothly with the co-operation of everyone, 
and if a certain group is going to have none of the so-called 
school spirit, in spite of the best possible leaders there will 
not be a contented School. To a certain extent this inde- 
pendent feeling is natural and it is perfectly justifiable. 


It may, however, develop into a feeling of not being in any 
way part of the School and when this happens it is dan- 
gerous. As new boys they were definitely noticed; as 
second years they were forgotten. My advice is for these 
people to make an effort to participate in the many out- 
side branches of school activity. In this way they will 
not feel let down after their new-boy year, when they were 
the centre of attraction and good second years will be pro- 
duced and from these, good leadership will naturally de- 

My most recent memories are those of a privilege and 
the main gist of them is that it is harder to have privileges 
than it is to be a new-boy. There are, naturally, many 
compensations which more than counteract any of the 
more difficult moments, but to think that all is a bed of 
roses is a bad misconception. Once again the feeling of 
friendship and even brotherhood is without equal and it is 
this along with the satisfaction I have experienced when I 
have in some way helped someone else that remains upper- 
most in my mind when I think of my final year at School. 

My reflections on the athletic side of my life here are 
unanimous — it has afforded me intense joy and fun, and at 
the same time it has been invaluable training and ex- 
perience. All this along with a slight feeling of irony that 
the only Little Big Four championship team I should be a 
member of is a cricket team! 

As far as the Record itself is concerned I remember 
chiefly trying (unsuccessfully most of the time) to beat a 
deadline, scurrying to get things written, corrected and 
typed, and working to produce editorials which would not 
be considered: "the same old line." 

Such are my thoughts as I write this late at night with 
the School silent and sleeping. What value they may have 
I do not know. They are written to try to express my 
appreciation and gratitude to a School which has done so 
much for me in four years. There have, naturally, been 
moments of despair, but I can honestly say that these last 


four years have been the happiest I have spent and my 
thanks go to masters and boys aUke. May I wish those 
returning to the School and those who are just beginning 
the very best of luck in years to come.

On the night of the leaving dinner, in Harry Hyde's 
absence, I was asked to make a speech as senior prefect of 
Brent House. I stood up, thumbed my napkin, started 
"umming", and forgot my introductory remarks. For about 
five minutes, (I think — I hope it was no longer!) the 
audience bravely bore some mumbling about life at T.C.S. 
and what it has done for the boys who are leaving this 
year. When I finally sat down, I was quite confused in 
my mind, and I have no doubt the audience was too. As 
inevitably happens I immediately thought of all the foolish 
things I had said, and of all the good things I should like 
to have said. As a matter of fact, I was quite convinced 
that with fifteen minutes of preparation I could have made 
a passable speech. Whether I could or not, I have some- 
thing important that I want very much to say to all the fel- 
lows who are leaving the School this year. Since I failed 
to say it there, I am writing it in the Record. This way, 
perhaps, more of the boys will notice it. 

Last year my uncle had a "man to man" talk with me 
about aims in life, how to make my stay on earth worth- 
while. He talked to me about the GUNS that a boy needs 
to bring him success in life. Some of the GUNS which he 
advised me to acquire were reading, sports, good study 
habits, and friends. 

Having just finished my life here at T.C.S. , I have 
been looking back, trying to think of the GUNS with which 
T.C.S. equips her boys. I shall speak only of the Senior 
School, as I never attended the Junior School. 


A few years ago we "new old boys" stood for the first 
time trembling at attention outside a prefect's room. We 
received our first "bawling out" for sloppy hair, dirty 
shoes, no tie-pin, coat unbuttoned. Very soon we acquired 
our first "gun" at T.C.S. — how to be neat. After a whole 
year we were accustomed to shining our shoes (and the 
prefect's!) every day, and generally keeping tidy. Next 
we learned the meaning of the word, "RUN!", and some 
of us were informed, if not by word of mouth, then by dint 
of paddle, that "we opened our mouths too wide at times"! 
We soon acquired our second "gun" — how to bear humility, 
how to be insignificant, how to take orders which we must 
certainly know how to before we can learn how to give 
them wisely. Then in our dormitories we found that we 
could not eat all hy ourselves, the whole cake that Mother 
sent, that we could not be selfish or stingy. We soon 
acquired our third "gim" — how to get on with others, how 
to share our life with our fellows. By the end of our new- 
boy year, we had at least three new "guns" — neatness, 
humility, unselfishness. 

In our second year we began to see that we were at 
T.C.S. for a stay, and that we might as well get into the 
life. We learned that the more we gave to the School of 
ourselves and of our enthusiasm, the more the School gave 
us. One of the interests the School offered us was the 
"Record". Our School magazine is published six times a 
year, more issues per year than any other school magazine 
of its kind of which I know. Over thirty boys gained 
valuable experience in journalism through definite duties 
for the "Record", while many others had a part in the 
"Contributions" section. Here was another "gun" — ex- 
perience in journalism. In dramatics and debating over 
fifty boys learned how to express themselves in public — an- 
other "gun". In the Choir many of us learned the joy of 
good singing, and the whole congregation learned how to 
sing hymns! Sacristans took a special interest in the 
church life of our School. Of sports it is hardly necessary 


to speak. Every boy at T.C.S. has unlimited opportunity 
for participation in sports. There are four rugby teams, 
two soccer teams, Oxford Cup cross-country racing, five 
hockey teams, two basketball teams, two swimming teams, 
three gym. teams, squash team, tennis, shooting, three 
cricket teams and a track team. What a powerful "gun", 
good sportsmanship, team spirit, and athletics give us! 

In our last days at T.C.S. we acquire another great 
"gun" of which many people are not conscious. It is the 
ability to give orders. Every senior and prefect is learn- 
ing just as much as every new-boy, and his experience is 
just as important. He learns how to accept responsibility 
and leadership in a social community. This is half of the 
basic purpose of our new-boy system. The other half is 
of course the ability to take orders. The person who feels 
that learning how to give orders entails learning how to 
be conceited, has no conception of school life. I can say 
in all sincerity that it has often been far harder for me to 
learn how to give orders than to learn how to take them. 
When the first new-boy came in to be paddled this year, 
T had to hold my hands behind my back so that he would 
not see my hands trembling with nervousness. 

We have acquired then, healthy interests, and a 
healthy way of life through our days here at T.C.S. But 
we must remember that a gun is no good unless we use it. 
So let's not allow the "gims" this School has given us to 
become rusted, let's use them. 

I have talked about many material advantages we 
have acquired at T.C.S. There is, however, one that I have 
so far omitted to mention and I feel it is the greatest of all. 
This "gun" will help us wherever we go, whatever we do; 
it is Friends. We were fully aware of it after the "Singing 
Off" on the night before all the other boys went home. 
They gripped our hands and slapped our backs and shout- 
ed and sang "For he's a jolly good fellow!" Then we knew 
that we would never be alone. Our friends, our School, 
would always be with us in spirit, wishing us good luck, 


proud of our every worthy achievement, giving us some- 
thing great for which to strive. We shall never forget 
that night nor those friends, and we shall always link their 
memory with our dear old School and the happy days we 

have spent in these halls and on these fields 

"And friends are friends though they're far apart, 

And vision is stronger than sight; 

When your courage fails, you will gain fresh heart, 

At the thought of the boys tonight." 
We who are leaving T.C.S. this year can look back with 
satisfaction on our life here. We can realize that we are 
well equipped with many "guns" for the real battle of life 
that lies ahead. And there certainly are tremendous oppor- 
tunities ahead of us. The world to-day needs every honest, 
diligent citizen it can get, and no one is better equipped 
than we boys of T.C.S. to take a full part in the Great Ad- 

So good luck, good fellows of T.C.S., good luck wher- 
ever you may go, whatever you may do. 
"Hills higher still we must climb with a will, 
For the School on the Hill is watching . . . watching ..."

Church of the Holy Trinity 

On Sunday, May 18, the Rev. C. J. Frank, Rector of 
the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto, spoke in Chapel. 
It was his second visit to the School in the last several 
years, and he recalled to us that on his previous visit he 
had given us a short history of his very famous church. 

This time he passed over its past history very rapidly, 
giving us a few facts about the erection and dedication of 
this church which had done so much good for thousands 
of Toronto people. Mr. Frank then went on to tell us some- 
thing about the physical side of this historic building, and 
of the restoration which is now in progress. 

He concluded by telling us how interesting, and what 
a wonderful experience it is to work with the poor and 
needy families of a community. 

We should like to thank the Rev. Frank for his very 
interesting sermon, and we hope that he may find time 
to visit us again in the very near future. 


A Vocation in Life 

The Rev. Hasted Dowker, Rector of Grace Church on 
the Hill in Toronto, preached the sermon at Evensong on 
Sunday, May 25. He chose for his text the 10th verse of 
the 3rd chapter of the first book of Samuel, "Speak Lord, 
for Thy servant heareth". 

He then applied this text to his topic which was "Our 
Vocation", and he pointed out that it is not so much the 
job we do, but the spirit in which we do it. We should 
think only of what we can put into a job, and in that way 
we get the most out of it. 

Mr. Dowker then went on to talk of the Ministry as 
an excellent example of a vocation in which these ideas 
prevail, and he stressed the great personal satisfaction 
which comes to those who have entered into the service 
of God. 

In conclusion, Mr, Dowker said that we must know 
what to do with our lives, and he asked us not to dismiss 
the Ministry as a vocation without some serious thinking. 

Trinity Sunday 

This year, for the first time in many years, the solemn 
and impressive memorial service, usually held around the 
Cross in front of the School, had to be cancelled because 
of rain, and was held in the Chapel instead. It is at this 
annual service that the members of the School pay their 
tribute to those Old Boys who died for their country in 
the course of three wars. 

The service followed the order of Evensong, and 
after the anthem, "I vow to thee my country", had been 
sung by the Choir, the sermon was preached by the Rev. 
Arthur Smith, an Old Boy of the School ('16-'20), who is 
now the Rector of the Church of St. Thomas, Belleville. 
He spoke of his memories of the war, saying that the most 
outstanding thing he remembered was not the courage, so 


much as the awareness of the things for which they were 
fighting, on the part of the common soldiers. He con- 
cluded by saying that on such a day of remembrance we 
should feel triumph and thankfulness, and not melancholy. 
The Headmaster then read out the names of all those 
Old Boys who had been killed in the war, and after a short 
silence the trumpeters outside the Chapel sounded the Last 
Post, followed by Reveille. 

The Choir 

The Choir sang the evening Service at St. John's, Port 
Hope, on May 11 and the Headmaster read the lesson. On 
May 18, the Choir visited St. Paul's Church, Perrytown, 
and sang the Service. The Chaplain assisted the Rector. 
The boys performed well on each occasion and many ex- 
pressions of appreciation were heard.

Gifts to the School 

B. R. B. Magee ('34-'37) sent six cricket balls to the 
School early in the season. 

F. E. Cochran ('28-'35) gave his first team cricket 
blazer to the School. It was worn by the Captain of the 



Pat Osier ('27-'33) sent his first team cricket sweater 
and a blazer crest to the School. 

Mrs. Greville Hampson has given a large number of 

books to the library. 


David Jellett ('37-'42) sent a number of books to the 

J.S. library. 


R. P. Jellett ('92-'97) has given some valuable prints 

to the School. 


Norman Seagram ('90-'93) gave a very special cricket 
bat to Brewer on Speech Day for knocking up ninety-nine 
runs in the St. Andrew's match. 


Forty-six Old Boys and Friends of the School gave 
seven hundred dollars to the Prize Fund with which 
academic and athletic prizes are purchased for the boys. 


Laurie Wilson ('10-'13) has given an old Tuck oil- 
cloth table cover to the School. The reverse side is covered 
with names of well known Old Boys, accompanied with 
numerous pen and ink sketches. 

The Wet Spring 

The patience of the School was severely tried by the 
six weeks of rain and cold weather which was our dismal 
lot this spring. But all bore the trial nobly. The fields 
were covered with pools of water on many days, and parts 
of them became quagmires. With the beginning of the 
Upper School examinations on June 16, fine weather re- 
turned and lasted until the end of the month. We hope 
it will make its appearance earlier next year. 

Celebration of Cricket Victory 

After supper on June 11 a ceremony was revived which 
had not been known at T.C.S. since 1934 when we won the 
football championship. The old truck was suitably decor- 
ated and brought to Bethune House door. Then the team 
came out led by the Captain, Brewer, and Vice-Captain, 
Conyers. They took their places in the truck and the whole 
School escorted them on a short tour of the town. A call 
was made at Mr. Lewis's house and he was prevailed on to 
utter some words of wisdom (accompanied by cake and 
chocolates!) Then the crowd found their way to the 
orchard where a large bonfire was in readiness. Once it 
had been persuaded to bum, it made a fine sight. The 
boys sang numerous songs and dispersed to bed, doubly 
warmed with a glow of satisfaction as well as of the fire. 


Mr. Scott 

We were all sorry to learn of Mr. Scott's illness, and 
his absence leaves a big gap in the life of the School. In 
May he developed a severe pain in his back and leg and 
after consultation with a specialist he was ordered to take 
complete bed rest. A ward in the hospital was put at his 
disposal and after four weeks he was somewhat better. The 
specialist, however, put him into hospital in Toronto for 
further examination and decided not to operate. He re- 
turned to the School on June 27 and is now allowed to sit 
up and take some very mild exercise. We trust he will 
be his usual energetic self again by September. 

Cadet Inspection and Gym. Show 

The annual inspection of the T.C.S. Cadet Corps was 
held this year on Saturday, May 10. For the first time in 
three years the day was clear and bright and despite lack 
of practice due to rain and cold the whole show went off 
very well and much credit is due to Captain Batt, cadet 
instructor. Although there was a cold wind there was a 
very large crowd of visitors at the School. 

Military studies classes were inspected by Captain 
Graves, cadet training officer, at ten o'clock and the cere- 
monial drill commenced at 11.00. The salute was taken 
by the Rt. Hon. Vincent Massey, C.H., one of Canada's 
most distinguished diplomats and formerly High Commis- 
sioner in London. He was accompanied in the inspecting 
party by Air Vice-Marshal W. A. Curtis, Brigadier J. G. 
Spragge ('18-'24), Col. M. P. Bogart, G.O.C. Ontario area, 
Group Captain H. C. Rutledge, officer commanding R.C. 
A.F. station, Trenton, and Capt. R. G. Graves. The cere- 
monial drill, under the command of W. J. Brewer was very 
well done and the corps is to be especially commended on 
the advance in review order. The House competition fol- 
lowed the ceremonial drill. After the cadet corps picture, 


Capt. Graves announced the result of the drill competition 
which he judged. Before giving his decision he pointed 
out that both Houses were excellent and that only two 
points separated the winner from the loser. After an 
anxious moment while he consulted his notes, Bethune was 
claimed the victor. 

A buffet lunch was held in the hall for visitors and 
members of the Senior School and then at 2.15 the show in 
the gym. got under way. Jarvis and McDowell are to be 
congratulated especially for their work on the high and 
parallel bars, while everyone deserves credit for the work 
put into it and the showing they gave which was well up 
to Mr. Batt's high standard. 

After a short introduction by the Headmaster, in 
which he outlined Mr. Massey's distinguished career, Mr. 
Massey made a very humorous and interesting speech, 
commending everyone for a "very good show" and wishing 
everyone the best of luck. He said that although a half 
holiday was traditional and he knew how much school- 
boys hated tradition, he himself was in favor of it and con- 
sequently, at the risk of incurring our anger, he asked the 
Headmaster for a half holiday. With three cheers for Mr. 
Massey and the singing of "God Save the King", a most 
successful day came to a close. 

Aid to Britain 

For one week during the term, several large boxes 
were placed outside the Chapel into which the boys were 
asked to put any old clothing or shoes. The Headmaster 
told us that this was part of a nation-wide appeal for 
clothes to help the people of Britain who have suffered so 
much this last winter. 

We are glad to say that the response was excellent and 
that both boxes were more than filled. 


Visit of Carl Schaefer 

We were all glad to see Mr. Carl Schaefer, a one time 
art master at the School, when he returned on May 30 to 
lecture on the paintings loaned to the School by the Toronto 
Art Gallery. The collection comprised original works by 
A. Y. Jackson, J. E. H. MacDonald, Emily Carr, Clarence 
Gagnon, F. H. Varley, Lawren Harris, J. W. Beatty and 
others well known. 

_ He spoke about each picture in turn, discussing its 
merits and defects, and giving a very comprehensive 
analysis of each one. After he finished his formal talk a 
number of the School's budding artists approached him and 
questioned him at some length. 

We are very grateful to Mr. Schaefer for coming and 
giving us some of his time and such an interesting lecture. 
We hope he will return again soon. 

Unveiling of Portrait of the Late Britton Osier, K.C. 

The ceremony of unveiling the portrait of Mr. Britton 
Osier, K.C, was held in the Hall on Sunday afternoon, 
June 1. This portrait was painted at the request of the 
Governing Body by the distinguished Canadian artist, Ken- 
neth Forbes. 

In his introductory remarks the Headmaster spoke as 
follows : 

This afternoon in this simple ceremony we are asking 
Mrs. Britton Osier to unveil the portrait of her husband, 
the late Britton Osier, K.C. Over a year ago the Govern- 
ing Body commissioned Mr. Kenneth Forbes, a distin- 
guished Canadian artist, to paint this portrait for Mrs. 
Osier, and she has, out of the kindness of her heart, given 
the picture to the School. 

Mr. Osier was a very distinguished Canadian citizen 
and the most generous benefactor this School has had. He 
was a man whose rectitude, high principles, thoughtfulness 


and constant desire to serve, made him a shining example 
to all who knew him. In the profession of Law he became 
a most eminent counsel, and his gifts were internationally- 
admired and respected. His outstanding characteristic 
seemed to be the penetrating, calm clarity of his thought, 
and his complete fairness and justice. 

He was a descendent of a long line of forbears who 
were distinguished in the Church, Law and Medicine, and 
he inherited their feeling of responsibility to their neigh- 
bours; no worthy cause failed to receive his interest and 

Mr. Osier disliked publicity intensely and he never 
allowed his name to be mentioned in connection with any 
of his numerous benefactions. It was only after many 
years that more than a few people knew what he had done 
for this School. 

He was not an Old Boy of T.C.S. but he gave us the 
privilege of having his three sons at the School, and after 
the first war he lent his active support to the plans for 
building a new Junior School as a memorial to the boys 
who were killed. 

When the fire of 1928 destroyed the Senior School, Mr. 
Osier at once threw himself into the work of planning for 
a new School at Port Hope, and Dr. Orchard told me that 
he could never have carried on had it not been for Mr. 
Osier's wonderful help in every detail. He gave countless 
hours to the difficult matter of preparing new plans and 
arranging for the School to carry on satisfactorily in 
Woodstock. He made most generous subscriptions to the 
Building Fund and he and Mrs. Osier gave us this beauti- 
ful Hall and the swimming pool. 

When the financial depression was keenly felt in this 
country, many of the promised subscriptions to the Build- 
ing Fund were cancelled and the School was left in a most 
precarious financial condition. We had borrowed a quar- 
ter of a million dollars from the bank at six per cent in- 
terest, and we had about the same amount out in bonds. 


Our enrolment had been reduced by more than half. The 
effect of this tremendous indebtedness and the greatly re- 
duced income was that we experienced five years of finan- 
cial peril and many times were very close to bankruptcy. 
Again Mr. Osier came to our rescue by offering to pay off 
half the bank debt if we could meet the balance. About 
seventy Old Boys and friends of the School realized Mr. 
Osier had given us a golden opportunity to clear off our 
debt and they subscribed $125,000 to equal Mr. Osier's 
magnificent gift. Later, most people who held our bonds 
turned them in and the School was saved. 

In helping the School, Mr. Osier's mind was on the 
coming generation. He was always anxious to assist boys 
and young men in any way possible and many prominent 
citizens of to-day were given their first chance by him. 

Since this new School was completed, over a thousand 
boys have benefited by Mr. and Mrs. Osier's great genero- 
sity, and we who believe in this type of education are con- 
fident that their lives have sound foundations largely be- 
cause of Mr. and Mrs. Osier's interest and unprecedented 
liberality. May this School, the Masters and Boys, ever 
be worthy of their benefactions to us. 

We are privileged indeed to have this portrait in our 
beautiful Hall ; Mr. Osier lives in every part of this School 
and it can be very truly said of him, as it was of Sir Chris- 
topher Wren, "Si monumentum requiris, circumspice" — If 
you need a memorial, look aroimd you. 

Mrs. Osier then unveiled the painting, which was much 
admired by everyone. She expressed her sincere thanks 
to the School, and spoke of her husband's great love for 
this School. Mr. G. B. Strathy, chairman of the Govern- 
ing Body, spoke further upon the generosity and kindliness 
of Britton Osier, and expressed his hope that the painting 
would be pleasing to Mrs. Osier. After a minute of silence, 
the blessing was given and everyone proceeded to the 


The Leaving Dinner 

The leaving dinner this year was held on Saturday, 
June 21. All the boys still at the School and all members 
of the staff and their wives were invited. We regretted 
the absence of Brewer, Hyde and several others who had 
completed their examinations some days before and had 
left for home. 

After a most enjoyable dinner for which many thanks 
are due to Mrs. Wilkin and the kitchen staff, the Head- 
master proposed a toast to the King. Mr. Ketchum then 
introduced the Hon. R. C. Matthews, former cabinet minis- 
ter and present member of the Board of Governors. 

In introducing Mr. Matthews, the Headmaster men- 
tioned that he was a graduate of McMaster University and 
that he had gone on to do postgraduate work at Harvard, 
where he wrote a Brief on "The Preparation and Delivery 
of the Canadian Budget" which has been widely consulted 
and referred to. Mr. Matthews founded the firm of R. C. 
Matthews & Company, Investment Bankers, and became 
President of the Liberal-Conservative Business Men's Club ; 
he was elected Member of Parliament for Toronto East in 
1926, being re-elected in 1930. In 1933 Mr. Bennett made 
him Minister of National Revenue, which post he held until 
he retired in 1935. 

Mr. Matthews has been a generous and enthusiastic 
supporter of the game of cricket, and indeed fifty years 
ago he played for a Lindsay team against T.C.S. on our 
grounds. For many years he was President of the Toronto 
Cricket Club and he did much to enable the younger 
generation in Toronto to learn the game. In 1936 he took 
a Canadian team to England, at his own expense, and for 
six weeks they played some of the leading English XI's, 
winning much praise from cricketers in England and 

For many years Mr. Matthews has been a member of 
the Governing Body of this School and he has taken a deep 


interest in every aspect of our welfare. A number of 
years ago, when we were on short commons financially, he 
made a generous donation to the School which he directed 
to be used in order to augment Masters' salaries, and in 
many other ways his constant support and wise counsel 
have been of tremendous assistance to the School. It is a 
great pleasure and privilege to have Mr. Matthews speak 
to the boys who are leaving us this year. 

Mr. Matthews spoke on what he considered the most 
important quality which a young man should possess — 
"Industry", and he cited several examples of young men 
who became great successes just because they did a little 
more work than they had to. 

The Headmaster then called on Campbell i, who spoke 
of the lasting friendships which are formed at a School 
like this. Lawson i then spoke of the great moral and 
physical benefits afforded by boarding school life. Both 
speeches were much appreciated. 

Conyers ii, Vice-Captain of Cricket, Williamson, Head 
Boy, and Mr. Bagley then spoke, the latter saying that we 
never really leave a place in which we have lived life to the 

The Headmaster then made some remarks about the 
history of the School and said the prime object of the 
School is the same to-day as it was 82 years ago, to de- 
velop strong young men who know the best way to their 
destinations. He read some passages from an early prospec- 
tus and then spoke about the career of Dr. Peabody, the 
great Headmaster of Groton School, Massachusetts, quot- 
ing the advice he used to give to his boys. After some 
School songs, the dinner came to an end. 

The Visit of the Governor-General 

On Tuesday, May 27, His Excellency the Grovemor- 
General and Lady Alexander paid the School an unofficial 


visit. Lord Alexander had been staying with Mr, Vincent 
Massey and he very kindly brought their Excellencies to 
the School. 

The fall-in was sounded at 10.00 and the Cadet Corps 
was ready to be inspected when the vice-regal party arrived 
at 10.15. The Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum met Viscount 
and Lady Alexander and showed them the dining hall 
where a group of modern paintings was on exhibit. The 
party then proceeded to the playing fields where, after a 
royal salute, His Excellency inspected the Corps. The 
squadron then marched past in column of route. 

His Excellency now gave a short speech in which he 
praised the drill very highly mentioning especially the 
steadiness on parade. The School gave three cheers for 
their Excellencies Viscount and Lady Alexander and the 
Headmaster granted a holiday for the rest of the day at 
the request of His Excellency. 

Choir and Play Dinner 

On Friday evening, May 30, a dinner was held in the 
hall for all members of the choir, the cast of the play, and 
the debating teams. After a very good meal, for which 
Mrs. Wilkin and her staff deserve much credit, the Head- 
master made a short speech. He praised the choir for the 
consistently fine work they had done all year, and thanked 
them for all the time that they had devoted to choir work. 
He concluded by recalling several amusing and interesting 
incidents which had happened in previous years. 

In the absence of Mr. Cohu, Tom Lawson thanked the 
Headmaster on behalf of the choir for his words of praise. 
Then, in his capacity as President of the Dramatic Society, 
he said a few words about their work in the past and their 
hopes for the future. He then presented Mr. Dale with 
a gift from all the members of the society, in recognition 
of all the hard work he had put into making their pro- 
ductions successful. 


Mr. Dale then said a few words of thanks, and was 
followed by Harry Hyde who spoke on behalf of the de- 
baters. After one or two more short speeches by various 
members of the School, a very successful dinner was 
brought to a close. 

Record Staff Diimer 

A dinner in honour of those boys who had worked on 
the Record staff during the past year was held in the hall 
on Friday, June 6. Present were all members of the Record 
staff, several masters, and Mr. Lapp, who has been print- 
ing the Record for twenty-nine years. After a few re- 
marks by the Headmaster, Jack French, this year's able 
Editor-in-Chief, made a short speech, and then presented 
Mr. Lapp with a bronze statue, in recognition of all he had 
done for the Record over the years. 

While thanking the staff for their gift, Mr. Lapp told 
some amusing stories which originated in the early days 
of the printing of the Record. 

The Headmaster then brought to an end the formal 
speech making, and for the next hour a very interesting 
and, we hope, profitable round-table discussion was held 
on methods of improving the publication of the magazine. 

Visites Interprovinciales 

In May the School was honoured by a visit from Mr. 
Paul Marquis, organizer of the private bureau known as 
"Visites Interprovinciales". He spoke for a few minutes 
after lunch on the work of his bureau in organizing visits 
of English boys and girls to French families and vice-versa. 

We all know what important work this is and we hope 
that in future many boys from this School will take ad- 
vantage of this opportunity. 



June 14, 1947 

Despite threatening skies, the annual presentation of 
athletic prizes was held on the terrace on Friday evening, 
June 13, the day before Speech Day. After Mrs. Totten- 
ham and Mrs. Ketchum had presented the boys with their 
trophies, the many guests present, plus the entire School, 
retired to the Hall where a more or less impromptu, but 
very successful concert was held. The singing of Handel's 
Hallelujah Chorus was the highlight of the evening, and 
the Choir, taking full advantage of the better acoustics of 
the Hall, sang it beautifully. Sharing the honours with 
the Choir was a solo by Charles Campbell, Head Prefect in 
1942-43, whose fine tenor voice will long be remembered. 
Th^ entire programme was as follows: — 

1. Hallelujah Chorus School Choir 

2. "Come to the Fair" S.S. Choir 

3. Piano Solo G. M. Levey (J.S.) 

4. J.S. Chorus 

5. Solo Charles Campbell ('37-'43) 

6. Reading Peter Pangman 

7. Al Jolson D. A. Campbell 

8. "A new boy's lot is not a happy one" The Prefects 

9. Welsh Folk Song The Choir 

10. Harmony Group 

11. The Three Discords Mr. Bagley, Mr. Snelgrove, 

Mr. Gwynne-Timothy 

12. School Songs The Choir 

God Save The King 

Later the traditional singing off of the boys who were 
not returning took place. 

The following morning the closing ceremonies began 
with a service in the Chapel. As usual, there were many 
more guests than could possibly have been seated in the 
Chapel, but unfortunately, it was raining very hard, and 
so, instead of gathering on the lawns outside the Chapel, 


many visitors were able to listen to the service through 
loud-speakers installed in the Hall. Following this very 
beautiful service, the visitors proceeded to the gymnasium 
where Dr. Sidney Smith, President of the University of 
Toronto gave a short address, and the Headmaster made 
his annual report. After the speeches, the Academic and 
Special prizes were presented by Dr. Smith, and a special 
presentation of a silver tray was made by the Board of 
Governors to Mr. P. H. Lewis in recognition of his twenty- 
five years of service with the School. 

After the Blessing by the Provost of Trinity College, 
the visitors retired to the Junior and Senior School dining 
halls, where buffet lunches were served. 

Address by Dr. Smith 

In his address to the leaving class, Dr. Sidney Smith, 
President of the University of Toronto, referred to the 
scores of Old Boys of T.C.S. whom he had met in the Mari- 
times and in the West whose praises of their old School 
had helped to enhance its reputation. No speech on such 
an occasion, he went on to say, could be as eloquent as the 
testimony of the sixty Old Boys whose names were listed 
on the School's Honour Roll commemorating our dead in 
the recent world war. "They encompass us as a cloud of 
witnesses", he continued, "and their sacrifice will be a 
perpetual reminder that we must pick up their chalice and 
seek to fulfil their ideals in our own lives". 

Dr. Smith stressed the need for a point of inner re- 
ference based on the training of school and church as a 
permanent guide in later life. It is an historical fact, he 
pointed out, that conquest of the seas came late in human 
development owing to the fact that sailors had only the 
land and stars as their guide. With the invention of the 
compass, the ships had a point of inner reference and broke 
the bondage that tied them closely to the shore. 


"We need a point of inner reference", he continued. 
"You must never think that you have become so smart 
that you can disregard the morals and high standards of 
the school and church. With such an inner reference you 
can chart your course and set forth confidently to your 
port of high hopes". Dr. Smith warned us that the danger 
in the world today was due not to man's mechanics but to 
his morals. He illustrated this point by a Latin quotation 
which he translated "not all that is allowed is honest". The 
strength of a democracy, he emphasized, is revealed not by 
tangible laws but by the unenforceable laws which proceed 
from one's inner being and depend upon courage, sym- 
pathy, tolerance and chivalry. 

In conclusion, he cited the example set by Athenian 
youth whose high standard of citizenship still serves as an 
inspiration to us today: "We shall never bring disgrace to 
this our city, by any act of dishonesty or cowardice, nor 
ever desert our suffering comrades in the ranks. We will 
fight for the ideals and sacred things of the city, both 
alone and with many; we will revere and obey the city's 
laws and do our best to incite a like respect and reverence 
in those above us who are prone to annul or set them at 
naught; we will strive unceasingly to quicken the public's 
sense of civic duty. Thus in all these ways, we will trans- 
mit this city not only not less, but greater, better, and 
more beautiful than it was transmitted to us". 


Mr. Chairman, Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

In this spring of most unpredictable and unseasonable 
weather, I do think it is good of you to turn out in such 
numbers for our eighty-second annual Speech Day. Speech 
Days and Prize Days occur in great numbers at this time 
of year; they seem to spread like a spring rash, accom- 
panied by mild fever. Some one suggested once that it 


would be doing parents a service if all the Ontario schools 
would combine and hold a joint Prize Day in Maple Leaf 
Gardens, Headmistresses and Headmasters handing over 
to Mr. Foster Hewitt, who would certainly make the pro- 
ceedings much more entertaining than they usually are. 
But tradition seems to keep us to the well worn path and 
here we are again, and very glad are all the members of 
the School to see our visitors. 

We welcome particularly to-day our speaker, Dr. Sid- 
ney Smith, President of the University of Toronto, and 
Mrs. Smith. Dr. Smith is a most distinguished figure in 
the field of higher education in this country and it is in- 
deed a privilege to have him with us. Most of us, I fancy, 
knew him first as President of the University of Manitoba 
and a leader in the political thought of the Dominion. But 
before he went to Manitoba in 1934 he had been an 
assistant professor in the famous Law School of Dalhousie, 
Lecturer at the Osgoode Hail Law School and then Dean 
of Dalhousie. In 1944 the University of Toronto won him 
away from Manitoba and he succeeded Dr. Cody as Presi- 
dent in 1945. It is safe to say that no President of any 
University in this country has ever had to deal with prob- 
lems of such magnitude as have confronted Dr. Smith at 
Toronto during these two years. And we all know how 
amazingly well he has solved them. His administrative 
skill results from a deep understanding of educational mat- 
ters coupled with almost superhuman patience, good 
humour and a tenacious physical energy. Knotty and 
complicated questions are resolved miraculously before an 
attack of such skill, capacity, and vigour. 

There have been nearly seventeen thousand students 
at Toronto during this past year, three times the normal 
pre-war number; a second university was opened at Ajax, 
and we can faintly imagine the multitudinous problems 
which have confronted the President day by day. 

In addition to all his University work at Manitoba and 
Toronto, President Smith found time to be President of 


the Canadian Association for Adult Education, Chairman 
of the Canadian Youth Commission, President of the Na- 
tional Film Society, and President of the National Con- 
ference of Canadian Universities. In the first World War 
he served with the artillery and later in the Royal Flying 

I happen to know that it was extremely difficult for 
Dr. Smith to squeeze out a few spare hours to come to our 
Speech Day, but he has gallantly and generously done so, 
and no words of mine can properly express our apprecia- 
tion to him; we feel he has paid a very real tribute to this 
School and we shall ever be grateful to him. 

We meet to-day under the shadow of the death of our 
beloved Archbishop Owen. For forty-seven years he served 
God and his Church, and his sudden death was a personal 
blow to the thousands who knew him and had a deep affec- 
tion for him. For the past fourteen years he visited this 
School at least once a year and he was kind enough to say 
that he looked forward to his visits and remembered them 
afterwards with pleasure. Only last November we gave 
a dinner in the Hall in honour of him and Mrs. Owen and 
those who heard his address will never forget the intimate 
details he gave of his career. Though he occupied such a 
high post and was internationally admired, he never lost 
his simplicity and true humility, and he loved to meet the 
rank and file of the Church, going even into the remote 
and more inaccessible parts of our country up to the last 
days of his life. Ten days before he died he spent a whole 
day at this School, administering the rite of Holy Con- 
firmation in the evening, and he spoke of his joy at see- 
ing such a fine group of boys. He was a saintly man, truly 
a man of Cjod, and his wonderful Christian Spirit has been 
an inspiration to countless thousands of many religious 

A few days ago one of our Masters, Mr. Arthur White 
died at his home in Montreal. He had been a valued mem- 
ber of our Modem Language staff since January, 1945, but

last March he suffered a sudden heart attack. Mr. White 
was a most conscientious and talented teacher and in his 
quiet way he had a real affection for the boys and was 
deeply interested in their welfare. We shall miss him more 
than we can say. 

Since September our School day has begun at 8.30 a.m. 
and ended at 9.30 p.m. A story is told of a Union Organizer 
meeting a boarding school master on the street. For no 
apparent reason he stopped him and said, "Mate, what do 
you do for a living?" "I am a schoolmaster", was the re- 
ply. "How long do you work?" "Oh, from about eight 
in the morning until ten at night." "How many days a 
week?" "Usually every day, including Sunday." "Are you 
crazy?" was the reply, "Haven't you got a Union?" Per- 
haps the Masters and boys at T.C.S. feel that they should 
form a Union. But of course there are compensations 
though it is true that the boarding school day is a very 
long one with heavy responsibilities and constant interrup- 
tions for the Masters. 

For three months this year the School day began at 
7 a.m. for a number of boys who were not doing so well 
in their work, but they seemed to survive and most of them 
found the early study very beneficial. The energy of the 
young male of the species is constantly amazing, especially 
as one gets older. 

We have had our share of troubles, illness having 
seriously affected four members of our staff: Mr. Taylor 
had to leave in October to convalesce, Mr. Scott, our Senior 
housemaster, has been on his back for nearly four weeks 
with disc trouble, I have mentioned Mr. White's fatal ill- 
ness, and I had to go into hospital in October for a disc 
operation. I am most grateful to Mr. Morris, Mr. Lewis, 
Mr. Scott and all the members of the staff for carrying on 
so well and assuming extra duties during the absence of 
those who were ill. Mr. Luscombe and Mr. Kirby have 
been of great help in the emergency this term. 


Despite these interruptions our class work seems to 
have gone along well and we are hoping that our Upper 
School candidates will bring credit to themselves and their 
teachers in the examinations which begin on Monday. Last 
year's results you will see in the Prize List. Though it 
was the general opinion that the papers were marked more 
strictly last summer, our Upper School boys had a higher 
measure of success than in 1945 and as a School we were 
in the top group. Over eighty-four percent of the papers 
attempted were passed, and over fifty-four percent were 
worthy of honours. That is a good record, but a better 
one is the number of Scholarships won over the years. Our 
boys have been awarded an average of five Scholarships a 
year for the past thirteen years, or a total of sixty-five 
University Scholarships. That is an exceptionally high 
number for a School which sends on an average about 
twenty boys a year to Universities. This past year there 
have been some two hundred T.C.S. boys at twenty-six dif- 
ferent Universities in Canada, England and the United 
States. Never before, of course, have we had so many 
boys at so many different colleges. 

One of our recent boys, J. A. Paterson of Montreal, 
has been selected as a Rhodes Scholar from the Province 
of Quebec, and we are very proud of him. 

During recent years the Naval College has set the only 
College entrance examination written by boys from all the 
provinces of Canada. For these examinations we have 
entered seventeen candidates and all have been successful. 
Last year a T.C.S. boy, David Malloch, of Hamilton, was 
placed second in these examinations and the personal inter- 
view among forty-seven successful candidates. 

For the third year we have required boys seeking ad- 
mission to the Senior School to write our entrance examina- 
tions. Boys from thirty-seven schools and three countries 
wrote them this year and though only a very few did so 
badly that we had to persuade them we did not feel we 
could help them next year, yet the general standard of 


the papers seemed to reveal evidence that the youngsters 
in the elementary schools are not being as well trained in 
the fundamentals of Mathematics and English. This is a 
tendency many people have been aware of for a long time 
and I am confident the report of the Royal Commission on 
education will deal effectively with it. There are, of course, 
numerous reasons for the training in our elementary 
schools not being as effective as it used to be in the first 
part of this century. Among them are lack of first class 
teachers, overcrowding of classes, the lure of enticing 
books, movies and magazines, often extremely harmful to 
the mental and moral development or youngsters, the 
radio and motor cars which often take up too much time, 
and the parents who often do not take up enough time, 
crowding of the curriculum and the lack of healthy athletic 
programmes for all children. But I cannot go into a dis- 
cussion of this problem now. Suffice it to say that I con- 
sider it a most serious matter and I believe most strongly 
that we as parents and as a country must take more pains, 
real pains with our children, and give them better care in 
their formative years. I mention this matter here because 
I do not believe the teachers of High School age boys and 
girls can possibly undertake successfully the task of turn- 
ing out sound Canadian citizens imless more help is given 
to them in the earlier years, and unless they have the con- 
stant co-operation of parents and authorities. We badly 
need in this country men and women of high intellectual 
attainments coupled with an understanding of their fellow 
men and the character and personality to deal successfully 
with the great problems which arise in this rather con- 
fused world. There must be no levelling down process in 
our schools; an aristocracy of intelligence and character is 
needed to lead us if we are ever to achieve that world wide 
spirit of trust and co-operation between peoples for which 
so many of our young men died. That is why I believe in 
the vital importance of the schoolmastering profession, but 
it must be given more attention by our present business 


and public leaders if the profession is to attract the men 
of high calibre and integrity which it needs, men who can 
inspire youth to great deeds. 

We are fortunate indeed to have such a capable staff 
at T.C.S. I wish I had time to name each one and thanjc 
him publicly for all he has done in the Senior School and 
in the Junior School. Suffice it to say that they have 
pulled together throughout the year and all have taken 
real pains to help the boys under their care in class and 
out of class; though we are all conscious that we never 
accomplish everything we would wish, yet we think we can 
see that most of our lads are developing extremely well. 

Last autumn Mr. Humble rejoined us after an absence 
of nearly three years in the army, and Mr. Dening came to 
us from England, having served six years in the Intel- 
ligence Corps of the British Army. Both these men have 
been of tremendous help to us this year. Mr. Warner is 
leaving us to return to High School work and Mr. Hadley 
Armstrong is returning to the Physical Training staff after 
a year of study in that field at McGill. I am very glad to 
be able to announce the appointment of Mr. Philip Bishop 
to the Modem Language department. Mr Bishop served 
in the Royal Navy during the War but for fourteen years 
before the war he taught modem languages in English 
schools, for ten years as a Senior instructor at the Royal 
Naval College, Dartmouth, to which College he returned in 
1946. Mr. Bishop had his early schooling in France and 
then attended Whitgift School, Croydon, going on to study 
iii Paris, Toulouse, Bonn and Santander. He is entirely 
bilingual, and is talented in painting, music, and modelling, 
as well as being an expert meteorologist. He will be a 
welcome addition to our staff and perhaps he will be able 
to warn us in future so that we can escape such appalling 
weather as we have experienced this spring by making a 
mass migration to Bermuda. 

Mr. Alan Hett is also joining the staff next September 
on loan for one year from the Royal Grammar School, 


High Wycombe, England. Mr. Hett was educated at Up- 
pingham and Oriel College, Oxford. He has taught at Up- 
pingham and Stowe, at the University of Hong Kong and 
the Government College in Lahore. He served in the Fly- 
ing Corps in the first World War and again in the R.A.F. 
in the past war. We hope he will enjoy his year here as 
much as we know we shall enjoy having him. 

I must say a word of welcome to Miss Ryan, the nurse 
in the Senior School, and to Mrs. Stephenson, the nurse- 
matron in the Junior School. They have both rendered 
vital assistance to the School. May I also say how much 
we always owe to the men and women not usually in the 
forefront with the boys who work so faithfully to keep the 
wheels of school life turning efficiently. 

I wish I could describe the many details of our life 
which have made this past year a very successful one but 
I must confine myself to an outline of them only. Mr. 
Hodgetts has been in charge of our athletic activities and 
we have had very good teams in Football, Soccer, Hockey, 
Basketball, Gym., Squash, Swimming, Track, Cricket. We 
have never had so many boys indulging in such a variety 
of sport and it has undoubtedly helped their morale and 
physical development and taught them valuable lessons of 
fair play. Mr. Hodgetts, Mr. Bagley, Mr. Batt, Mr. Humble, 
Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Lewis were in charge of the first 
teams and many other masters assisted. The Football 
Team came within a game of winning the Little Big Four 
Championship and the School was thrilled on Wednesday 
when the Cricket XI. scored their first untied victory over 
our three rival schools in twenty-nine years. We have 
been on top more often but we were tied with one or two 
other schools or one school was not participating as was 
the case in 1943. Bill Brewer, our Captain, Conyers, Vice- 
Captain, Mr. Lewis, the coach, and all the members of the 
team deserve the utmost credit for the way they kept up 
their morale and courage and skill in many very sticky 
spots. Brewer's ninety-nine runs against St. Andrew's was 


a brilliant innings; one of his hits was the longest any of 
us have seen, about one hundred and thirty yards, and in 
one over he hit two sixes, two fours and ran three, making 
a total of twenty-three runs in five consecutive balls — an 
amazing feat. It must have been a deep disappointment 
for him to be given out l.b.w. when he was within one run 
of the cricketer's dream of making a century, but he took 
it in true cricketing spirit and merely said he though the 
umpire was right. In addition, he has bowled extremely 
well, and he captained his team with patience, skill and 
good judgment. Conyers' bowling was excellent all season 
and Barnes helped out particularly well at bat and as a 
bowler at some critical moments. The Cricket Team of 
1947 will long be remembered. 

The Cadet Corps has kept up its very high standard. 
His Excellency the Governor-General, and Lady Alexander, 
visited us on May 27 and Viscount Alexander inspected the 
Corps. He expressed himself as being much impressed by 
the drill and deportment of the boys. The Right Hon. 
Vincent Massey took the salute at our annual Inspection 
on May 10 and he also spoke highly of the drill and the 
Gym. work in the afternoon. Last year we came second 
in the Empire in the Imperial Challenge Shield Shooting 
Competition and first in Canada for the fifth consecutive 
year. The band won the trophy for being the best Cadet 
band in this military district. 

Time will not permit me to give any details of the 
boys' work in Music, in Art, in Carpentry or to speak about 
the Choir and their excellent performances under Mr. Cohu, 
about the plays, especially the School Play "The Queen's 
Husband" so ably produced by Mr. Dale, about debates, 
concerts, lectures, about boxing, gym. work, military 
studies. So many boys have taken part in these activities 
and so many others have assisted as instructors or coaches. 

"The Record" has celebrated its fiftieth anniversary 
and French and his staff ably guided by Mr. Humble, have 


published five extremely good numbers. Some of the 
original writing has, we feel, set a new high standard. 

The War Memorial Fund is steadily increasing. The 
subscriptions received now total $110,000 and the Commit- 
tee in charge hope to increase this sum to at least $150,000 
before the autumn. Mr. Charles Burns and his assistants 
deserve the utmost credit for all the work they are doing 
to make this appeal a thorough success, and we can never 
properly express our gratitude for so many most liberal 
contributions. Building costs are too high now to allow 
us to think of constructing the Chapel even if we had the 
amount needed, but they are expected to come down very 
soon and we hope to see the first sod turned perhaps before 
next Speech Day. The Architects' drawing of the pro- 
posed Chapel is outside the present Chapel and you will see 
some small flags marking the site just west of the Mem- 
orial Cross. When this Chapel is built we shall have some 
very much needed space in the present Chapel for a library 
and reading rooms, and the basement of the new Chapel 
may be used as a projection room and little theatre. 

On Trinity Sunday, Mrs. Osier unveiled a portrait of 
the late Mr. Britton Osier in the Hall. It was painted by 
Mr. Kenneth Forbes and we feel highly privileged to have 
it. Mr. Osier was our most generous benefactor and never 
can any T.C.S. person forget how he helped to rebuild the 
School after the fire of 1928 and then saved us from in- 
solvency during the financial depression. 

Schools like T.C.S. could not survive in this country 
were it not for the generous help of men and women who 
believe in them. We have no endowments, we are not 
helped by any government, and the fees we charge barely 
pay the running costs so that when we need new buildings 
or equipment we have to appeal to our friends. T.C.S. has 
been most fortunate indeed in having had so many tried 
and true friends over the years, and I hope they have not 
been tried too much. 


The new Memorial Tuck was opened officially on May 
3 by Mr. and Mrs. Blair Russel who gave it to us in 
memory of their gallant son Hugh, who was killed in action 
in the Air Force. The building has been much admired 
and already it has proved its worth in so many ways. I 
know I am speaking for the boys when I say that every 
day they are thankful to Mr. and Mrs. Russel for their 
generosity to us. 

Mrs. Pangman gave us a new hard tennis court and 
it has been used constantly. With the Jellett and Osborne 
courts we now have three hard courts, and without them 
the boys would have had no real tennis this year when 
the wet weather made grass courts impossible. We are 
extremely grateful to Mrs. Pangman. Many other kind 
friends have helped us during the year, notably the Ladies' 
Guilds of Toronto and Montreal, Mrs. Gundy and Mrs. R. 
C. Matthews who have given generous bursaries. To all 
our friends we can only say thank you, but I can assure 
them the boys appreciate what has been done for them and 
I believe they are worthy of such interest and help. 

During this past year every space in the buildings has 
been occupied, including the overflow quarters, and we 
have been hoping to reduce our numbers from 270 to 250 
next autumn, thus eliminating the necessity for temporary 
quarters. All the expected vacancies were taken by the 
beginning of January and since then we have had to refuse 
applicants almost every day. It now seems as if we shall 
have another 270 boys in the School next September. 
Doubtless there will be a falling off before long but I must 
tell parents that over half the vacancies for September, 
1948, have already been taken and there are boys entered 
for others years up to 1956. It is a great thing to have 
such faith in the future and that is the note I wish to stress 
at the conclusion of this report. There is far too much 
doubt, disillusion, uncertainty, confusion, suspicion, despair 
in people's minds. Rome was not built in a day and we 
were all far too optimistic two or three years ago when 

^-^« ..^td* 



we thought our dreams of the new world would come true 
without a long period of negotiation, discussion and really 
intelligent and patient understanding, planning, and plain 
hard work. Mr. A. J. Toynbee says that civilizations fall 
because of their failure to meet new challenges success- 
fully. We certainly have the ability to meet the challenge 
of this age if we keep our heads and our hearts. 

To our Senior boys who have done so much for the 
School and who are now leaving us, may I say that you 
must always have faith in yourselves and faith in some- 
thing outside yourselves. That means that you must have 
worthy ideals and objectives and you must never let any 
setbacks discourage you. 

A man without faith 
Grows old before his years 
His world a wraith 
For whom the end nears 
Like a winter mist 
When the sun is cold 
In the cold west. 

His children about him 
Are strangers, unknown; 
The love that begot them 
Cooled, and gone. 
If he get riches 
They turn to rust 
And he can do nothing 
With a handful of dust. 

Life's miracle fails him. 
Life's rapture, life's breath; 
He has done with the living, 
He has forestalled death. 


There are too many men in these days without Faith 
I do hope you will never join that company. Keep 



faith with yourself, with your families and friends, with 
the ideals of peace and freedom and fair play to all men 

We feel there is no finer youth anywhere than the 
youth of Canada and miracles can be performed by them 
if they keep faith. Particularly well do we know the 
young men of this School who are now leaving us for new 
fields of endeavour; it has been a privilege to work with 
them and we shall never forget them. May they go from 
strength to strength, strong in their Faith, and may every 
good fortune accompany them.

Mr. W. G. Grace left Aldenham School in Hertford- 
shire with his wife for a two year leave of absence in 1914 
after serving there for sixteen years as a cricket coach. He 
came to Canada and the two years have now stretched to 
thirty-three, thirty-one of which have been spent at T.C.S. 
"Did", as he has been affectionately nicknamed, has, dur- 
ing those years, coached the cricket team and been the 
head groundsman. Indeed, it is to him that vje owe all of 
the beautiful terraces and playing fields that we now have. 

The things he has accomplished since he arrived at 
T.C.S. are well-known and will be recounted presently. It 
was slightly more difficult, however, to find out about Mr. 
Grace's past history. He was very reluctant to say any- 
thing about it, but after much persuasion we managed to 
get at least an outline of his colorful and interesting earlier 

He was bom at Redboum in Hertfordshire (he refuses 
to disclose the date) and it was there he was first intro- 
duced to cricket. Encouraged by his father he developed 
an early love of the game and played it every chance he 
got. His first cricket was played on the Redbourn com- 
mon and there, when only a boy of fourteen, he played on 
teams with experienced men. He was a member of the 
Redboum team which won the county challenge cup in 


1888. On leaving Redboum he attended school in nearby 
Harpingham, and there his love of the game and skill at it 
both grew. Even then he coached at every opportunity, 
spending his holidays and spare time guiding younger boys 
who later became famous cricketers. He attended the 
College of Agriculture for two years in Wiltshire and in 
1898 went to Aldenham School as coach. 

Mr. Grace played on so many teams that he cannot 
remember all of them. So keen was his enthusiasm that 
he would play for any team that needed him or wanted 
him. One of his fondest memories is a game in which he 
played for a team at Hazelmere in Surrey. In that game 
he bowled eighteen overs, thirteen of which were maidens, 
and he got six wickets for eight runs. He still has the 
ball with which he accomplished this feat. He played one 
season for St. Albans Club, which was a stepping stone to 
the county team and in that year he bowled one hundred 
and thirty-six overs and got thirty-five wickets. For three 
years when he was first at Aldenham he played county 
cricket for Hertfordshire, which gives one an idea of the 
calibre of his play. Mr. Grace was also a very fine bats- 
man. The highest score he can recall is one hundred and 
eight not out, which he made one year while playing at 
Tubbocks. He has on two other occasions made his cen- 
tury, with 101 and 107 runs. 

Mr. Grace could not be coaxed to give any more in- 
formation, but what he has divulged is enough to give 
evidence of his excellent record. 

When he left Aldenham in 1914 he came to Canada 
and went to St. Andrew's, which was then located in Rose- 
dale. He stayed there for two years and then left with 
offers from both Ridley and T.C.S. He chose T.C.S., he 
said, because it was a church school which more resembled 
the English public schools. And so he arrived in April, 
1916, and has been here ever since. 

Mr. Grace's first love has always been cricket, but he 
has done almost everything else since he has been here. 


For years he took care of the School's three hockey rinks, 
sometimes staying up all night to get them ready for the 
next day's hockey. He also took charge of the School 
farm for a short time. His main claim to fame, however, 
is the work he has done on the playing fields. When he 
came they were not level, had no real grass to speak of, 
and were indeed more like some farm fields left free of 
crops. He first began levelling a place for the J.S. to play 
cricket across the road from the hockey rinks. He then 
went to work on the Bigside table, levelling, sowing grass, 
fertilizing, mowing and getting it into the shape that it has 
been for many years. From there he went to all the other 
fields including the J.S. fields, the terraces and the Bethune 
House terrace. Indeed, there is no part of the School 
grounds that has not been tended and improved by Mr. 
Grace. To him must go most of the credit for such a beau- 
tiful campus. He is still to be seen edging around the 
bushes and paths, and many of the less cricket-minded 
boys know him best for his insistence that the numerous 
"please" signs be obeyed. 

The Headmaster was on the cricket team the first 
year Mr. Grace coached it, in 1916. That year they lost to 
St. Andrew's, a team containing eight players who had 
also been coached by Mr. Grace the year before. Al- 
though we have many times beaten Ridley, only twice 
since Mr. Grace came has the School won a Little Big 
Four championship in cricket. That was in 1918 when the 
team was captained by E. S. Clarke, and in 1943, the year 
Sid Lambert and Ken Scott were captain and vice-captain. 
When asked which boys he remembered most he replied 
that there have been so many and so many good cricketers 
that he couldn't possibly name them all. Mr. Grace re- 
calls one amusing incident in a game when he was umpire. 
When our bowler was consistently bowling short balls Mr. 
Grace became suspicious and measured the pitch to find 
it four feet too long. The pitch was changed and the game 
went on. What he does remember very well, however, is 


the great help that Old Boys such as Dyce Saunders, Percy 
Henderson and Norman Seagram used to give to the 
teams. They would come down as often as they could and 
coach the boys a great deal. They were invaluable, says 
Mr. Grace. Until 1923, when Mr. Lewis also helped with 
the cricket team, Mr. Grace was the only coach. Since 
then they have worked together, with Mr. Grace not only 
helping with the coaching, but also taking care of the 
cricket pitch, always having it in top condition. He also 
spends a great deal of time in his workshop oiling and re- 
pairing bats and mending other equipment. 

Throughout the years Mr. Grace has remained the 
same — sincere and serious about his cricket. He believes 
the only way to play it is to take it seriously and try to 
learn and improve all the time. His love of the game is 
evidenced in the way that his face lights up when he 
reminisces about past games and players. He is very un- 
assuming and doesn't like to interfere with the boys, but 
is always willing to help them if they want it. His work 
on the cricket table and with the equipment cannot be 
over-emphasized. The School owes a great deal to Mr. 
Grace for his many varied accomplishments in the last 
thirty-one years but the greatest of all his contributions 
has been in the field he knows and loves best — cricket.

These two activities, the full value of which we some- 
times don't realize, have been carried on at the School 
since its founding in 1865.
