Ours is one of the few schools in this country where 
the system of New Boy "fagging" is still carried on. But 
lately some concern has been expressed on the part of the 
Old Boys and present members of the School for the 
future of this system. "The modem trend is against it", 
many of them say. "It can't continue long". 

One of them, a Senior of '47-'48, went as far as to give 
the reasons why he thought the system was doomed, but 
he held out some hope for it in a somewhat changed form. 
His letter has been published in this issue of the "Record", 
because it seems to embody in it the opinion of many, 
namely, that to survive, the New Boy system must be 
changed. As a matter of fact the system has been so much 


modified in past years that an Old Boy forty-five or fifty 
years of age would hardly recognize it. This particular 
well-wisher follows a seemingly logical line of argument. 
The idea, he argues, originated as a pact of mutual benefit. 
The fag agreed to do odd jobs for the senior in return for 

which he received protection, a microcosmic feudal 

system. In these days of civilization and the Rights of 
Man, he points out, the fag no longer needs protection, at 
least physical protection, and the bargain becomes rather 
one-sided. Unless the senior boy can make amends in some 
way, he says, the system is destined to go. 

Fortunately, another well-wisher sent in a letter which 
presented a somewhat different point of view. The New 
Boy system, he said, is like a football squad, where the 
coach, who has been through the game before, introduces 
the novice to it and gives them some hints on how to attack 
it. And that is, in my opinion, the exact function of the 
New Boy system. Becoming attuned to life in a boarding- 
school, after previous experience only of day-schools, is 
no easy task. Some maxims of conduct, however, forcibly 
endorsed, should be given to a boy on entering the school, 
until he has had time to see for himself what he must do 
to make a success of his school career. And most important 
of all, he should be given a definite position in the school 
hierarchy, and definite tasks so that at least some atten- 
tion will be focused on him and he can feel that the school 
is his just as much as his fagmaster's. As a matter of fact, 
some boys, sinking into the comparative oblivion of a 
second year's life in the lower forms, look wistfully back 
at their New Boy year as their happiest in the School. 

This concern for our New Boy system then does not 
appear to be very well founded. As long as it performs 
these useful functions, it will continue to exist, and I don't 
think that either the New Boys or the privileges would 
have it any different. As long as it remains the School's 
strength, it will never be mistaken for its weakness by 


anybody who knows us well, and the tie-pinned hordes 
will always line the walls of bottom flat, standing rigidly 
at attention. 



Mr. Editor: 

Last year I found out what it meant to be a Privilege, 
and I should like to pass on my observations for the bene- 
fit of those who are Privileges this year. You are the 
leaders of the School. It seems to me, on looking back, that 
this is perhaps an even more important phase of the new- 
boy system than being a nev/ boy, for it teaches a boy 
leadership. To my mind there is more to it than appears 
on the surface. A Privilege's real privilege is being en- 
trusted with responsibility, and he should always bear this 
in mind. For instance, his fags are not merely personal 
slaves to be treated like animals. I know that if I were a 
new boy such treatment would only serve to make me 
despise my fag-master. A Senior or Prefect should act as 
a big brother to his fags. He should help them adjust 
themselves to new surroundings (many of them are away 
from home for the first time) and guide them. This is im- 
portant, for treatment received during the new boy year 
has a lasting effect on a young boy's character. You have 
an important effect on his character and must teach him 
to be tidy, take orders, and get along with his fellows. 

One of the hardest things is to be strict and to retain 
popularity. A Privilege learns to give orders, which actually 
is even more difficult than receiving them. Training as a 
cadet corps officer, helps us in learning how to be stem, 
but strictness alone is not enough. If you are to retain 
respect, and with it popularity, you must be strict but just. 
Those who stand only on their dignity, will see that they 
soon lose all respect. Snobs make poor leaders. In giving 
orders the Privilege must learn to respect the other fellow's 


feelings and to use tact rather than to try to inflict his 
wOl on others. You will then find your orders carried out 
willingly and that means efficiently. 

As a Privilege you will find that you have an important 
duty as a leader in the School. You will have to make 
important decisions quickly. I have heard complaints all 
too often that "brains" are not recognized. There is a 
good reason for this. The boys who pull their weight in 
the team-work of School life are more ready for leadership, 
for they are better acquainted with the intricacies of 
human nature than the scholar whose whole time is de- 
voted to studying. As a leader you must remember that 
it is you who set the tone of the School spirit. Think back 
over the years when you thought there was a good spirit. 
I think you will find that they were the years when the 
Privileges were a really good group. In a responsible posi- 
tion it is always easy to be cut off from the general level 
of School opinion, but the leader will always keep a close 
watch on the pulse of School thought. 

—A Senior of '46-'47. 


By C. F. W. Bums, 
Chairman of the Campaign Conmiittee 

With the assurance of strong financial and moral sup- 
port from certain outstanding members of the Governing 
Body such as Gerry Strathy and Norman Seagram, the 
writer accepted the responsibOity of raising the simi of 
$250,000 for the purpose of erecting and endowing a Mem- 
orial Chapel to the memory of the gallant T.C.S.'ers who 
laid down their lives for their country and as a thank- 
offering for the safe return of so many. Surely this was 
a welcome responsibility and challenge to our highest en- 


It was decided to divide the quotas on a geographical 
basis by provinces, and chairmen for the different districts 
were appointed as follows: 

Roland A. Ritchie, Esq., 

R. P. Jellett, Esq., 

Peter G. Campbell, Esq., 

Hugh F. Labatt, Esq., 

Harold H. Leather, Esq., 

F. G. Mathers, Esq., 

Judge P. H. Gordon, 

George Ross, Esq., 

A. M. Robertson, Esq., 

H. D. Butterfield, Esq., 
and W. W. Stratton, Esq., 

P. A. C. Ketchum, Esq., 

Ernest F. Howard, Esq., 

E. H. C. Leather, Esq., 


In most instances our choices were wise, but as can 
happen in a campaign of this nature, there were disappoint- 
ments which seemed to increase with geographical distance, 
though considering the many appeals that were in the wind 
while we were operating, the general success of the cam- 
paign was really phenomenal and, of course, understand- 
able when we consider the high regard in which the School 
is held by its Old Boys. 

It is very gratifying to us all to realize that at this 
time of writing, Trinity College School's campaign is, to 

Maritime Provinces 
Province of Quebec

our knowledge, the only successful one which has been 
carried out since the war by any of the schools of a like 

Not only were our Old Boys important contributors, 
but also the parents of certain boys who are now at the 
School did much toward our success. In particular, I think 
of George McCullagh, who has been a most welcome addi- 
tion to the Governing Body, and E. P. Taylor. Also there 
was magnificent support from J. W. McConnell of Montreal. 

I cannot end this brief report without a special pat on 
the back for Hugh Labatt of London. He not only con- 
tributed largely and generously himself, but was instru- 
mental in bringing in a great deal of additional money. 

Peter Campbell, who at the moment is seriously ill, 
though from latest reports he is making a slow recovery, 
was another tower of strength. Peter left certain organiza- 
tional details to some of his hard-working lieutenants such 
as Sydney Saunders, but he begged, threatened and cajoled 
vast amounts out of friends and colleagues on behalf of 
the Fund. He and Sydney Saunders in a large way made 
the campaign the success it was. 

R. P. Jellett of Montreal again gave strong leadership 
in the Province of Quebec, and our old friend, Judge Gordon 
of Regina, also did yeoman work for the Fund, contri- 
buting largely himself. That great cattle man and staunch 
Old Boy, George Ross of Alberta, with much grumbling, 
groaning and criticism of the School, the East, and the 
Federal Government, made a substantial contribution and 
personally pushed the Province of Alberta over its quota. 

As Chairman of the Committee, let me thank all of 
my fellow workers who helped so magnificently ; the School 
will never forget the way its Old Boys and friends re- 
sponded so generously to this worthy appeal.

T.C.S.— A New Undertaking 

On the first Sunday of term the Headmaster spoke as 

When anyone begins a new undertaking he usuaUy has 
some unexpressed questions hovering in the back of his 
mind. They probably run something like this: 

Can I manage it ? 

What will people think of me? 

Will I like it and do well? 

The answer to the first question — Can I manage it? — 
will be in the affirmative if the person has the usual talents, 
with the added and most important qualities of humble 
confidence and faith in himself, in his essential dignity, in 
his calling to fulfil a certain purpose in this life. 

The answer to the second question, — What will people 
think of me? — will lie in the bearing, the personality, the 
character of the person. People will most certainly like 
him if he is sincere, if he is simple and straightforward. 


if he is himself, if he is direct and friendly, if he has a 
happy, good-natured outlook. They are the people one 
likes to associate with. 

And the answer to the third question, — Will I like the 
life? — will lie largely in the answers to the first two. For 
if one does well, and if he is well liked, then he nearly 
always enjoys the life. 

We should always remember that it is the attitude of 
the person which counts much more than the actual accom- 
plishment; it is the spirit behind the law or the rule much 
more than the law itself. 

He who gives himself enthusiastically, wholeheartedly 
to some great undertaking is always happy and he always 
does well. "Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only" 
has always been one of my favourite quotations. 

In a large department store some people go direct to 
a particular counter, select the article they want, pay for 
it in coin which represents, at sometime in its history, real 
endeavour and work, and then they make the article their 

Others look around at the displays, the sporting goods> 
the toys, the candy, make a few idle purchases just for 
their own enjoyment. Still others, not very many I hope, 
go to the shoe counter. When showed a pair they say 
"Oh no, the soles are too thick; you see I don't want them 
for walking or climbing — I just stand still most of tho 
time. Give me a pair with reinforced toes — I enjoy kicking." 

Others get lost wandering around, they can't make up 
their minds and never seem to find their way. 

And some few go straight to the Ask Mr. Foster 
Travel Service to get a return ticket — they want to get 

home right away. 


School life is something like that. Some know at once 
what they want, put forth a real effort and make it their 
own. Others just toy with their opportunities. A few 
stand still and kick. Some are confused and lost. 


Occasionally one or two never want to try anything 
new — they ask for return tickets. 

It is not difficult to know who are going to prepare 
themselves best for life. Life demands action, and action, 
if worthwhile, must have a purpose. 

The boy who knows what he wants, why he wants it, 
the cost of it in time and effort, and who sets about 
making it his own in a simple, direct way, he is the boy 
who develops well, and who, month by month, becomes 
more of a man, more to be trusted, more respected, liked 
and admired. 

Here, the department store offers literature on one 
counter, mathematics on another, foreign languages are 
over there, history on that aisle, science upstairs, and so 

In another department are games, in another friend- 
ships, in another periodicals and reference books, in an- 
other discussions and debating and drama, and so on. All 
interesting perhaps, all important but some more important 
than others for different people for different reasons. 

But all can be acquired by paying the price. The tags 
have no dollar signs; instead they read "interest, en- 
thusiasm, whole-hearted effort, willing sympathy and co- 
operation, long continued attention" and so on. 

But in this big store, customers quite often become 
lost and confused, they forget their way, they forget their 
directions, they feel lonely and abandoned. They begin to 
lose heart, then they make more mistakes, the crowd 
swallows them up and they drift. 

Just then you meet a very kindly man to whom you 
are at once attracted. You feel you have seen him before. 
"I know you", he says, "I know you well, and I am so glad 
to see you again. You have been away. You know I have 
always liked you and admired you. In some ways you are 
different from others but that is what makes you attrac- 
tive. What? You say you are lonely and discouraged? 


Come over here to this quiet aisle away from the crowd. 
Now what is the trouble?" 

And you find yourself telling him everything because 
he is so appealing, so friendly, and he seems to trust you 
and have faith in you. 

After a talk with him you know once more what to 
get and where to get it. He mentioned Trust and Faith 
and Sure Hope and Confidence, and Friendliness and Un- 
selfishness, and Good Spirit, and Courage and Persever- 
ance as being the cost of most things in this department 
store, and in the bigger one farther up the hill called the 
World Department Store. 

And before he left he gave me coin of that sort for my 
purchases. Then I saw him meeting some one else — an- 
other old friend he must have been. 

In a curious way I didn't feel he had left me, he seemed 
to be with me still. Then I remembered I had some jobs 
to do and I looked around to see which way to go. There 
was a small sign in the aisle reading "Chapel" and I knew 
where I was. And I remembered something he said more 
clearly than anything else. It ran like this, "Don't be led 
by the weak, the crowd is often wrong, be a doer, a doer 
of the things I have said to you, and not a hearer only. I 
want to find more people with friendliness in their hearts, 
I want more understanding, more sympathy, more bravery 
against evil, more living with a high purpose and burning 
faith and then the weak will be inspired and follow the 
strong and life on earth will be happier, it will have more 
meaning, it will be more noble for everyone. 

"Be a doer," he said; "I am always with you. I trust 
in you." 

The Great Commandment 

As the text for the second Simday in the term on 
September 28, the Rev. E. R. Bagley chose the famous 
words, spoken by Christ and found in the Prayer Book, 


"Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and 
with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy 
strength" and "Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself". 

Mr. Bagley commenced by explaining the meaning of 
the second great commandment. He pointed out that in 
a Church School we have regular Chapel services. He 
continued by saying that these services served as a re- 
minder of our purpose in life and helped us to keep this 
way of living. It is not by chapel alone, though, that we 
learn to observe this commandment. Every action either 
helps or hinders our fellows. Boys must learn not to be 
selfish ; most learn easily, some with more or less difficulty. 
Our lessons learned here will help us to make our way in 
a world plagued with greed. The Bible teaches this way 
of life but it is put to a practical test in a school such as 
this. Also at T.C.S. we learn to widen our viewpoint, to 
take on new responsibilities. We receive an inkling of 
community spirit. These are benefits we can all share in. 

Mr. Bagley also stressed another ideal which, he said, 
was harder to obtain. That is the first of Christ's great 
Commandments. "Love your God". God represents the 
finest things we strive for — truth and beauty. That is 
why we try to have the finest of everything in our Chapel 
so as to be worthy of His love. As we grow older we try 
more and more to see the finer aspects of the beautiful — 
poetry, music, drama and other arts. We learn that these 
are all manifestations of God, Our praise of Him in ser- 
vices gives us an opportunity to express our love of Him 
and thus paradoxically, we grow to know Him more fully. 

Our fellowship here is what the early Christians called 
a Koinania — a companionship based on Christ. It is this 
spirit which flows through our lives and makes us no 
ordinary school. The chaplain closed by advising that we 
open our minds to this spirit and thereby live in harmony. 


The Harvest Festival 

On Sunday, October 3, the School held its annual 
Harvest Festival. The Chapel was beautifully decorated 
with various products of the recent harvest. These in- 
cluded corn, apples and even a few large pumpkins. The 
very beautiful decorations were arranged by the masters' 

The Rev. C. H. Boulden, rector of St. Mark's Church, 
gave the address. He opened his sermon with a prayer of 
thanksgiving to God. 

Mr. Boulden described the attitude of many people 
toward religion as being like a bowling lawn in the twi- 
hght, where nothing else matters but the game in hand 
and where the affairs of the outside world are forgotten 
for a time. He went on to say that religion should not 
be something set aside from every day life but should 
enter every aspect of our existence. 

Few of us, of course, can possess the wisdom of Isaiah 
who saw the heavens open before him and the angel of 
God descending; but we should nevertheless try to see the 
work of God in the things around us. 

When we come to church we should sing the hymns 
not merely to take part in the service but to worship God. 
We should not only recite the words but mean them as we 
say them. 

In closing, Mr. Boulden reminded us that our prayers 
of thanksgiving should not be for chapel alone but should 
last for our whole life. 

The Choir 

The Choir this year is composed of the following boys 
under the able direction of Mr. Cohu. 

Bass: Deverall, Croll, Byers, Welsford, dePencier, 
Paterson ii, Aitken, Gilley, Thompson i, Ross, Heard, Dead- 
man, Taylor i, Lawson, Bogue i. 


Tenor: Graham, Hughes, Chester, Bogue ii, Mac- 
kenzie, Robarts. 

Alto: Winspear, Norman. 

Treble: Price, Bingham, Anderson, Spencer, Merston, 
Montizambert. Willoughby, Tuer, McKinnon, Osier, Mc- 
Glennon, Symons, Cov/an, Richardson, Bonnycastle, Mol- 
son, Mather, Luxton, Hargraft, Dunlap. Kyle, Clarke, 


This year as in others, the Chaplain received an over- 
whelming response from boys to fill the positions of 
Sacristans. Twenty-nine people volunteered during the 
first week of school, but unfortunately Mr. Bagley could 
only take fifteen this year. Therefore, so that every one 
could have a chance, all Sixth form boys who had asked 
to help at the services were taken, and the boys who would 
have another chance the following year were asked to wait 
until that time. 

Byers is Head Sacristan with Paterson ii, Chitty, and 
Thompson i acting as crucifers. The following fifteen 
boys are Sacristans, and will help at the services during 
the school year: Bate, Bovey, Chester, Doheny, Graham, 
Heard, Herridge, Lewis, Mackenzie. Manning, Palmer, 
Rogers. Scowen, Thomson ii, and Welsford. 

Choir Notes 

A great many changes have been necessary in re- 
organizing the Choir for the coming year. 

The entire Alto section was reluctantly released for 
vocal adjustment and now, for the first time for many 
years we shall be without the help of a Bermudian Coopei-. 

Twelve Senior boys left us in June, Goering (Head 
Choir Boy), Watts, Pepler, James, Snowden, Boulden, 



Harvie, Morgan, Mackenzie-Kennedy, Cross and Cooper i, 
and from the Trebles, Hunt, Fitzgerald, McCullagh, Strathy, 
Hylton, Gordon, Wevill and the Nevin brothers. 

The generous help of all these boys contributed to 
the very satisfying results the Choir achieved on every 
occasion that they were called upon to perform, which in- 
cluded invitations to both St. Mark's and St. John's 
Churches to occupy the Choir stalls for Evensong, the 
former at rather short notice in October and the latter in 

Our sincere thanks to the boys for their help and co- 
operation, to Mr. Bagley and to Miss E. Wilkin, the Choir- 
mother, who encouraged and assisted so willingly. 




Another Generous Gift 

When the fall term began there were several marked 
improvements around the School. The most outstanding 
was the new clock in the tower of our beautiful tuck — an- 
other generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Blair Russel of 

The tuck shop was given to the School by Mr, and 
Mrs. Blair Russel in memory of their son Hugh, who was 
at the School for eight years, and was killed in action in 
the Air Force in the Second World War. Everyone who 
has seen our tuck agrees that no other school in Canada 
has such a gem of a building for a tuck shop and we who 
use it know how much it is appreciated. With the clock 
in the tower it is now perfect. 

The clock was made in England and was installed 
during the first week in September; it has kept excellent 
time. Its four sides have a dark blue background, with 
gold numbers and hands, and it can be read from anywhere 
on the playing fields. Perhaps this is a disadvantage as 
the New Boys won't have their old excuse, but we can be 
sure it will save a lot of worry and lates. The School is 
very much indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Russel for their mar- 
vellous gift. 


Summer Jobs 

It has long been said that T.C.S. boys come back to 
School for a rest. With this in mind a large number of 
the boys took summer jobs. 

This year the range of jobs was very wide, but the 
general trend was toward outdoor work. Croll, Chitty, and 
Chester spent a busy summer erecting a telephone line for 
the Department of Lands and Forests. It was rumoured 
that Hogarth drove a bulldozer but no doubt he just hung 
on. On the subject of hanging, Ken Maclaren spent the 
summer hanging over the rail of a tanker in the Caribbean 
and South Atlantic, along with "Buck" Rogers. Of those 
who stayed nearer home, Macklem was a guide at Fort 
Henry in Kingston, Palmer worked on a weed killing train 
in Alberta and "Bunny" Austin, as usual, was spare man 
at his father's lumber mill. 

The menial line also had its adherents. Brian Barrow, 
when not painting Quebec red, was deck steward on a 
river boat. "Tiny" Thompson was a bellboy at Sherwood 
Inn. Several had indoor, but no doubt equally as interest- 
ing jobs. Deverall, Stirling, and Duffield were all lab. boys, 
the first at Port Hope Radium refinery and the latter two 
in Bermuda. 

Flying took the time of dePencier and others under 
the Air Cadet scholarships. "Westy" Carson was one of 
an exchange group of cadets who visited England for 
several weeks. 

In short, T.C.S. boys were almost everywhere, doing 
almost everything, especially enjoying themselves. 

SaUing at T.C.S. 

For the first time in the School's history an oppor^ 
tunity of sailing has been given to the boys. This is being 
done through the facilities of the Port Hope Yacht Club 
of which Mr. Bishop is Captain of Sails. The club has 


offered the use of four Snipe class boats to T.C.S. boys 
who fulfill the necessary conditions. Mr. Bishop called a 
meeting which some twenty boys attended. They have 
written home for their parents' permission and if there is 
time this season we may hope to see a few races. Next 
year it is hoped that a club may be formed at the School 
to become an affiliate of the Port Hope club. Any T.C.S. 
boy will be eligible to join this club as a full member on 
pajnnent of the required fees. 

Elimination of the Overflow Quarters 

The Senior School this year is somewhat smaller than 
it has been since before the war years. This reduction 
has been made so that the School may be brought nearer 
to its normal operating capacity. The upper floor in the 
Lodge had been used during past years as extra accommo- 
dation for a certain number of boys, but this year after 
many strenuous efforts it became possible to eliminate 
these quarters. The rooms, formerly fitted as dormitories, 
have been returned to Mr. Ketchum for the use of visiting 
Old Boys. 

This measure has brought the Senior School from 
last year's total of one hundred and eighty-nine boys down 
to the present level of one hundred and seventy-five, a re- 
duction of fourteen. 

It is hoped that the dormitory in the Hospital may 
also be eliminated soon as this is also considered to be 
overflow quarters, and the boys here are above the num- 
ber the School was built for. 

These changes were made rather difficult due to the 
fact that there has been a long waiting list for admission 
to T.C.S. and only a very small number are able to gain 
entry each year, but the elimination of the overflow quar- 
ters guarantees greater comfort and convenience to the 
boys who would normally live there. 


New Regulations 

Several new School regulations have come into exist- 
ence this year. Although none of these are drastic changes, 
they will all have their effect on School life. 

One new rule that will make sorrowful the countenance 
of many a late-sleeper, is that breakfast will be a full ten 
minutes earlier this year, at 7.30 a.m. There is likewise 
going to be a room inspection after breakfast at 8.15 a.m. 
It has also been decided that half-term breaks interrupt 
the School work and therefore there will be no break this 
term. Instead an extra week-end has been added to the 
Christmas holidays. 

No more shall a noisy mob converge on Trinity House 
at break because the ground floor and the telephone office 
are out of bounds from 10.30 to 11 a.m. except to boys 
whose names are on the parcel list or who live there. Two 
new rules have been laid dealing with finances. No ad- 
vances of cash may be obtained from the Bursar or the 
Housemasters except by a written request from the par- 
ents; and cheques from chartered banks will be cashed by 
the Housemasters this year instead of by the Bursar. 

Another change from last year is that the Common 
Room in the basement of Bethune House, last year's 
"Smoker", is to be used as a study for the House Officers. 
Also, those members of the School who indulge in the 
higher forms of literature will be dismayed to learn that 
comic books have been outlawed this year! ! 

Summer Recreation Activities at T.C.S. 

During the past summer, the recreational facilities of 
the School were given over to the residents of Port Hope 
for July and August. In past years, the Headmaster has 
offered to the town the use of the School facilities on con- 
dition that any groups taking advantage of this offer bo 
organized and supervised. Until this summer the town 
has not been able to fulfil these conditions. 


However, early in July, the Rotary Club agreed to be 
responsible for a summer recreational programme, and 
appointed Mr. Armstrong to direct and supervise the entire 
programme. The Lions Club had already hired a lifeguard 
to teach swimming, and to supervise the swimming beach 
in town. 

With such a start, a fairly comprehensive programme 
w?^ arranged, and with the aid of many volunteers in Port 
Hope, the first group to use the School swimming pool 
arrived on July 12th. 

By the middle of the summer, no less than five hundred 
boys and girls were using the pool every week. Approxi- 
mately eighty boys and girls were learning to play tennis, 
along with a large membership of adults in the Port Hope 
Tennis Club. The courts were used almost continuously 
from morning to night, seven days a week. The gymnasium 
was used on rainy days in lieu of outdoor activities, and 
here the young lads showed a very decided interest. It 
finally developed into a set crowd using the Gym. while 
waiting for their turn to swim. Mr. Maier, and an old 
boy. Jack Goering, taught track and field events on the 
campus for a week. Mr. Key helped with the programme 
in the town park, and also instructed a small art group 
towards the end of the summer. Mr. Humble did much 
valuable work in teaching tennis twice a week. 

The ski camp was used for overnight hikes under 
the leadership of Mr. Maier with the boys, and Miss Wilkin 
with the girls. The distance was travelled on foot, and by 
bicycles, with all the chores of cooking and cleaning up 
being done by the hikers themselves. The ski camp lends 
itself very well to activities of this kind. 

It is anticipated that the Port Hope Recreation com- 
mittee will take advantage of the School facilities in future 
summers, until such time as they have their own swimming 
pool and tennis courts. In the meantime, the School is 
very pleased to be able to help organized recreation in Port 


The Rains Came 

As the term began the district aromid the School waa 
suffering from a long felt lack of rain. There had been 
nothing more than a few short showers for over two 
months. The grounds were very hard and the grass on 
the campus was withered and brown. While Mr. Scott 
dreamed up ways to keep his "thousand gumtrees" watered, 
Mr. Hodgetts worried about possible injuries to his foot- 
ball squad and Mr. Grace made hourly trips to the cricket 
pitch to see how it was standing up. But after lunch on 
the first Saturday it started to rain heavily and by the next 
day the grass had reverted to its natural colour again and 
everyone was happy. 


The School would like to take this opportunity of con- 
gratulating the Privileges appointed this year, especially 
Thompson i who has been made Head Prefect. 

The Privileges are: Head Prefect, Thompson i; School 
Prefects, Byers, Paterson i; Seniors, Austin, Bogue i, 
dePencier, Deverall, Dignam, Fullerton, Maclaren, Strat- 
ford, Taylor i; House Officers, Chester, Chitty, Deadman, 
Gilley, Hughes i, Huycke, Mackenzie, Paterson ii, Rogers. 

Movies in the Hall 

On Saturday, September 25, there was a showing of 
movies in the Hall. There were four shorts and one featura 

The first short was on a strange Australian creature 
called the Lyre bird. The next was called "The Changing 
Face of India", and compared the odd primitive method of 
living and the modem innovations that are appearing. A 
cartoon was next on the programme and it was, of course, 
very popular. The last short of the evening was "America's 
Wonderland". It showed many famous scenic spots such 
as the Grand Canyon, Old Faithful, and Niagara Falls. 


The feature movie was "Tom Brown's School Days" 
based on the famous book of the same name. It was a 
very good movie although it was less enjoyable to many 
who found it difficult or impossible to hear any of the 

Thanks are to be given to those who made such an 
enjoyable evening possible. It is hoped, however, that in 
future the acoustics will improve. 

A Trip to England 

This year Dick Carson was the representative from 
the T.C.S. Air Cadet Squadron to go to England with the 
Air Cadet group. 

The trip started in the beginning of August, and their 
first stop was Trenton, Ontario. Here they had a mar- 
velous time, and Dick remarks about the number of T.C.S. 
Old Boys he keeps on meeting. After reaching England 
they spent a little time in London before they visited Buck- 
mgham Palace, and saw the King and Queen. Then they 
had a day at the Olympic Games, and after that they 
toured through England, visiting historic places, and 
famous people. The Lord Mayor of York entertained them, 
and the Duke of Portland conducted them around his 
fabulous estate. 

On reaching Edinburgh the group were shown the 
Scottish jewels, given a reception by the Lord Provost, and 
shown Holyrood House. From Edinburgh they went on 
a tour of the Highlands, and everywhere they went they 
were hospitably entertained. 

On the way back to Canada the Group stopped at 
Iceland, and Dick says the whole trip was a lot of fun, and 
a great success. 


New Cars 

A number of new cars appeared last year parked near 
the buildings during classes. Messrs. Bagley and Dening 
both acquired new Fords, Mr. Humble and Mr. Scott new 
Chevrolets and Mr. Bishop came into possession of Mr. 
Scott's old Chev. Mr. Snelgrove seems to have beaten the 
rest to the draw, as he received delivery on his Dodge dur- 
ing the first term. 

Several of the masters put their new cars through 
their paces during the summer covering ground as far east 
as Nova Scotia and the coast of Maine. 

Mr. Bagley drove to Lake St. John in Quebec (the 
land of Maria Chapdelaine) where he looked after a reser- 
vation of Indians. Mr. Snelgrove went east as far as Nova 
Scotia and claims he didn't even have a flat; Mr. Dening, 
by this time no doubt an excellent driver, motored down 
to the coast of Maine. Messrs. Bishop and Scott did not 
branch out as far as the rest, travelling to Niagara and 
Montreal respectively, while Mr. Humble stayed in Port 
Hope most of the summer helping with the town recrea- 
tion programme which went on here at the School. 

The Art Group 

The students' Art Group has organized for another 
year of activity. T. G. R. Brinckman has been elected 
President and A. G. T. Hughes, Secretary. An extensive 
programme has been planned for the Fall term. Members 
are encouraged to develop individual interests but special 
projects are set out in advanced design and sketching; 
water colour, pastel work and oil painting are particularly 
emphasized. In addition the Group expects to have several 
special lectures by outstanding artists and authorities on 
Art. The Group is again under the able direction of Messrs. 
Key and Bishop. 


Food Parcels to England 

When the Rev. P. B. Clayton visited us last year he 
asked the Headmaster if the boys of the School would 
undertake to contribute food parcels to be sent to worthy 
friends of his in England. His idea was carried out and in 
August six parcels were sent. Since then letters of 
acknowledgement have been had from all of those who 
received the parcels. 

As we can well imagine, everyone was very grateful 
to be so remembered. The contents of the parcels, beef, 
tongue, cheese, dried fruit, and sugar, it was agreed by all. 
would provide a welcome change from the monotony of 
present day rations in England. 

The letters all spoke very highly of "Tubby" Clayton, 
several of the recipients having known him during the 
First World War. One person knew "Tubby" at the "Old 
House" in Poperinghe. Another was a battery commander 
who got to know Mr. Clayton on his visits in the awful 
days of the Ypres salient in 1917. 

Everyone seemed very interested in their letters about 
Canada. At least one couple expressed hope that they 
would be able to visit Canada and come and see the School, 
and everyone seemed very keen to entertain any T.C.S. 
boys who might be in England. 

It seems that the Rev. P. B. Clayton has started a very 
worth while scheme, one which we should try to keep up. 
Our thanks go to Mr. Clayton for startmg new friendships 
for the School, which we sincerely hope will be continued. 

Dramatic Society Meeting 

On Saturday, September 26, a meeting of the T.C.S. 
Dramatic Society was held to elect an executive for the 
1948-49 season. The executive chosen was: President, 
Doheny; Vice-President, Taylor; Treasurer, Paterson ii; 
Secretary. Bovey; Committee Member, dePencier. 


At the end of last year there were about twenty mem- 
bers in the society and this year only half are back. The 
members of the club now are: Bovey, Chester, dePencier, 
Doheny, Hughes i, Macklem, Paterson ii, Pitt, Taylor, 
Thompson i, Timmins i. The society is looking forward to 
a successful year and hopes under the guidance of Mr. Dale, 
to provide as good, if not better, entertainment at Christ- 
mas and Easter than they have in previous years. 

New Boys* Picnic 

On Sunday, September 26, the Prefects and Seniors 
held a picnic for the New Boys and went all out to give 
them a good time. The site selected was about five miles 
north-east of the School. Nearby a stream rolled by. While 
some proceeded to get as wet as possible, others resorted 
to mountain climbing. Where these two diversions didn't 
satisfy, exploration of the woods and streams usually did. 
Some happened to find a tree that they could climb up 
fairly easily, but somehow found it hard to climb down. 
After these activities had ended, baseball filled out the rest 
of the morning until lunch time. The game was a one 
innings affair between the Prefects and New Boys of Brent 
and Bethune Houses. This game broke up with the caD 
to lunch — a delicious repast consisting of hot-dogs, com, 
ice cream, fruit and milk. After lunch another baseball 
game, started with more evenly matched sides than in the 
first game, lasted seven innings and ended in a wild score. 
The boys were then returned to the School after a wonder- 
ful New Boys' Picnic. 

The Music Hour 

On Friday, October 1, a Music Hour was held for the 
boys of all "A" Forms. It was a great relief to get minds 
off work and enjoy an hour of pure relaxation. The pro- 
granmie was very good, there being music to suit every- 


one's taste. The evening's entertainment was due mainly 
to Taylor i. who acted as master-of-ceremonies, and an- 
nounced the following programme: — 

Finlandia Jan Sibelius 

Capriccio Espagnol Rimsky Korsakoff 

Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 Edward Elgar 

Rhapsody in Blue George Gershwin 

Hungarian Dance No. 1 Johannes Brahms 

Marche Slav Peter Tschaikovsky 

The Old Boys' Weekend 

This Thanksgiving upwards of sixty Old Boys returned 
to the School for their annual weekend. Everyone, except 
perhaps the New Boys, agreed that this year had been the 
best for a long time. Once again those who came back 
were predominantly from the last few years, although 
there were a pleasing number of the more senior Old Boys 
on hand as well. 

The first arrivals came in time to see the School plaj' 
Malvern on Saturday afternoon and were no doubt im- 
pressed by the team's excellent effort. On Sunday, a small 
contingent arrived from Varsity but it was not until Mon- 
day that the great majority came. They were officially 
welcomed at dinner by the Headmaster who conmiented on 
the beautiful singing which accompanied the dessert and 
introduced Mr. S. B. Saunders, President of the Old Boys' 
Association. Mr. Saunders spoke for a few minutes on 
the good work of the Association in raising funds for the 
new Chapel and in starting the Old Boys' Bursaries. 

After lunch the annual Old Boys' meeting was held 
and George Hees ('22-'27) was elected President for the 
coming year. The meeting delayed the Old Boys' game 
for nearly an hour but from the smoke-filled Carnegie 
Room emerged enough football talent to whip the School 


After supper, most of the Old Boys left, but the School 
retired to the Hall where an informal Amateur Hour was 
held under the direction of Mr. Snelgrove. It is too bad 
that the talent displayed by "Babe" James, "Cuggy" Camp- 
bell, and "Wilf" Curtis in the Brent corridors could not be 
included in the show but nevertheless an excellent pro- 
gramme was arranged. 

To start the evening the Choir sang the School Song, 
after which the whole School joined in on "There's a 
Tavern in the Town" and Con Baker gave us a very popu- 
lar accordian solo, playing some of the more modem pieces. 

The Junior School choir sang "Lakefield in the Morn- 
ing" followed by an excellent piano solo by Domville. He 
played one of Chopin's Polonaises, and as an encore the 
Ritual Fire Dance. Both pieces were played remarkably 
well, showing considerable talent. Mr. Bagley gave us his 
usual good performance of excerpts from Gilbert and Sul- 
livan's "Pirates of Penzance", and then Smith ii gave us 
several pieces on his banjo. Mr. Dennys played his own 
arrangement of "Stardust" which was appreciated by all. 
To finish up the evening the School sang three more songs, 
followed by the National Anthem. 

We hope that this will be the first of many Amateur 
evenings, and credit must go to Mr. Cohu and Mr. Snel- 
grove who made it the success that it was. 

The weekend might be called "Varsity" weekend since 
about half of the O.B.'s were from there. Among them 
were such stalwarts as "Buck" Rogers, Bill Brewer, "Long 
Tom" Thompson, Peter Alley, "Hank" Hyde, "Rufus" 
Lawson, "Nev" Conyers, Peter Williamson, Ron Watts, 
Mike Hali, Denny Snowdon, "Rick" Gaunt, Dick Butterfield, 
"Hoagy" Hogarth, Bill Cox, Hugh Vernon and "Marty" 
McDowell. Conspicuous by there absence were "Hubie" 
Sinclair, "Ernie" Howard, and Ed. Huycke, all former Head 
Prefects. Hubie, along with Bill Brewer, Lawson and 
Hyde are regulars on Varsity seconds this season. Ed. 


Huycke and Archie Jones are again starring on Varsity 

McGill also contributed its quota of Old Boys. Those 
who came were Peter Pangman, Ian Campbell, "Nogi'* 
Newcomb, Geoff. Taylor, "Cuggie" Campbell and Hudson 
Goodbody. Perhaps with a little more support from Mont- 
real we could have a Varsity-McGill game next year. How 
about it, Montreal? 

Dick Macklem and "Herbie" Mclntyre turned up from 
Queen's. The former is holder of the Richardson Scholar- 
ship. To complete the picture Stu Bruce and Dave Emery 
came to represent Western. 

We were glad to see John Ray back again. He has 
now recovered from his eye injury, which he received 
playing hockey and is a member of the Permanent Air 
Force, being stationed at Trenton. 

The oldest Old Boy on hand was G. S. O 'Brian, who 
was at the School from 1907-1912 and a former Head Boy. 
Ranking next to him was J. D. dePencier ('15-16), the 
father of two of our present boys. 

The only other Head Boy present was J. P. William- 
son, who has gained that honour for the last two years. 
Recent Head Prefects were "Rick" Gaunt, Bill Brewer, 
"Posie" Parker and R. B, Duggan. 

By Monday night, the Old Boys had all gone their 
respective ways, most of them to lectures next day, and 
another weekend was over. Come again soon. 

The Debating Society 

A meeting of all those interested in debating was held 
early in October. Mr. Humble is again the master in charge 
and Taylor was elected President, Paterson i Vice-Presi- 
dent, and Paterson ii Secretary. Debating this year is 
expected to begin as soon as the football season ends and 
every boy will have a chance to debate before our first in- 


terscholastic engagement. It was suggested this year that a 
Junior Debating Society be formed in the Third and Fourth 
forms, possibly to be affihated with the Senior group. An- 
other interesting proposal came in a letter suggesting that 
an Inter-School Debating Group be formed. This has been 
considered for several years and we hope that now it will 
become a reality. Last year the School debated with S.A.C. 
and U.C.C. among the Little Big Four Schools, also with 
Trmity College, B.S.S. and U.T.S. Mrs. George Fulford has 
generously offered to donate a challenge cup and this 
should do much to foster debating among the private 
schools. We wish Taylor and all the members a success- 
ful season and sincerely hope that the challenge cup may 
come to T.C.S. this year.

Mr. Cole joined the Senior 
School staff in September, re- 
placing Mr. Hett, who had 
taught for a year on leave from 
the Royal Grammar School, 
High Wycombe. 

Mr. Cole claims proudly to 
be "one hundred percent Eng- 
lish" ; he was educated at The 
Queen Elizabeth Grammar 
School, Kingston - on - Thames, 
and then went up to Oxford. 
He had been studying there for four terms when he joined 
the Royal Air Force in 1942. He trained as a pilot at Pen- 
hold, Alberta, under the British Commonwealth Air Train- 
ing Plan. Then he went to Port Albert, in Ontario, to 
continue his training as a Pilot Officer. It was while he 
was stationed there that he formed his closest bond with 
this country — Mrs. Cole, a former resident of Toronto. 

In 1943 Flight-Lieutenant Cole returned to England 
and became a flying instructor and traffic control officer 
at an air base there. When he was demobilized in 1946 he 
resumed his studies at Keble College, Oxford. In the course 
of conversation it was disclosed that he had captained both 


his college cricket and field hockey, — "not that that will be 
very interesting," he added modestly. He said, without 
any hesitation, that sports are his main interest, and con- 
tinued smilingly that he could be quite happy playing 
cricket twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty- 
five days a year. He has also had considerable experience 
as a cricket coach. However, Mr. Cole's interest in athletics 
was apparently subordinate to his academic prowess, for 
he shortly emerged from Oxford with an Arts degree in 

He is now teaching Latin, Greek, Ancient and Mediae- 
val History. The School welcomes Mr, and Mrs. Cole, and 
sincerely hopes that their stay will be a long and happy

On March 3, 1928, the Senior School, Chapel, Gym- 
nasium and Rink were destroyed by fire. The Headmaster. 
Dr. Graham Orchard, began a policy of immediate recon- 
struction, and obtained as temporary headquarters Wood- 
stock College buildings through the kindness of McMaster 
University. The School was very lucky to be able to get 
possession of these buildings. 

In some ways the temporary quarters were better than 
the old School. The gymnasium was larger than the one 
at Port Hope, and there was also an elevated running track 
around the sides of the gym. In addition there was a swim- 
ming pool, something that the old School lacked. Every- 
one agreed that this was a great improvement on "swim- 
ming at The Iron Bridge in June". However, the temporary 
building also had its drawbacks. It had only accommoda- 
tion for one hundred and fifty boys, and consequently the 
Junior School was forced to remain in Port Hope. The 
buildings had not been occupied for two years, and the 
playing fields were in very poor shape. Nevertheless, 


through Mr. Grace's efforts, we were able to enter our 
cricket team in the Little Big Four, in which they managed 
to come third, beating Upper Canada. The assembly hall 
was converted into a temporary chapel. Confirmation was 
held as usual that year, and eight boys were confirmed. 
Apartments for married Masters were made in the former 
ladies residence. In addition there were also complete 
blacksmith, engineering and carpenter shops. This was 
something very new in the history of the School, although 
they did not get too much use. 

The School had an excellent location in Woodstock. 
While the town was about a mile away from the School in 
Port Hope, at Woodstock they were right in the town, and 
the station was only one quarter of a mile away. This was 
one definite advantage that Woodstock had over Port 
Hope, although we fancy that the nearness of the town 
caused the Masters to do a lot of prowling around after 
lights out. 

One of the major losses of the 1928 fire was the 
complete destruction of the library. However, many 
generous friends of the School came forward and soon 
there was quite a good collection of books, although it was 
very much diminished in size. An especially generous gift 
was that of the Prefects of Saint Andrew's who gave two 
hundred dollars to the School to replace some of the books 
which were destroyed in the fire. Another loss the School 
suffered was the destruction of most of the furniture. 
Onc^ again many generous friends of the School came for- 
ward and much of it was replaced. Trinity College in Scot- 
land, one of the schools to which parcels of food were sent 
last year, sent a very generous donation which helped to 
replace a number of Prayer Books which were destroyed 
in the fire. 

The new buildings were opened on May 16, 1930, by 
His Excellency the Governor-General. In honour of this 
event there were three half holidays. Now, do you sup- 
pose ?

. Quiet pervades the School. Classes are on. Suddenly 
a muffled roar is heard, followed by the tinkle of falling 
glass. "So you see there, boy, the manifest unwisdom of 
having air in the hydrogen generator when you light it." 
Mr. Scott is at it again. 

After allowing the smoke to clear somewhat, we begin 
to take a look around the Chemistry lab. Apart for some 
broken glass and a few bodies lying around, it is all that 
a well-ordered chemistry laboratory should be. According 
to Mr. Lewis, it is supposed to be the best high school 
chemistry lab. in the country. This is a very great change 
from the science room in the old School. In those daj'^s 
the lab. was a table in one of the classrooms on which a 
few simple experiments were performed. After the fire 
of 1928 the science laboratories in the new School were 
given in memory of Sir William Osier, the first Head Boy 
of the School. Walking around the room we find a num- 
ber of interesting things not noticed by the average, for 
example, the place where a bird flew in the window up- 
setting a bottle of sulphuric acid, which ate a hole in one 
of the benches. In the front of the lab are long rows of 
shelves filled with all sorts of chemicals, while in a room 
at the back are the balances used for weighing chemicals. 

Crossing the corridor, we enter the domain of Mr. 
"J. Kramer" Knight, the Physics lab. Here the instru- 
ments of death and destruction are somewhat simpler, but 
none the less effective. We are shown the Wimshurst 
machine which produces something in the nature of 10,000 
volts. However, the instruments of torture are somewhat 
more usual in this room, as we see Mr. Knight vigorously 
applying pressure to a student who failed to do his home- 

Leaving the Physics lab, we enter a small room ad- 
joining it, the inner sanctum of Mr. Lewis. Here we find 
the equipment with which Mr. Lewis keeps the labs func- 


tioning. Here we see the distiller, which has Mr. Lewis 
very excited, as it requires no work to operate "if the 
Hydro people don't cut the power off on us". Along the 
walls are rows of weird chemicals, while over in one comer 
are the batteries and their generator which supply direct 
current for the labs. Also hanging on the wall is a fire 
extinguisher just in case Mr. Scott forgets again.

Soccer is one of the newer sports at T.C.S. While it 
has been played from time immemorial as an off-season 
sport, it is only in recent years that it has been played as 
a regular sport at the School. The sport was started by a 
number of English boys who came out to Canada, and who 
decided that soccer was one thing that the war was not 
going to deprive them of. A team was organized, and in 
1940 soccer was first played in the School as a regular 
sport. The team managed to win two out of its three 
games, beating Upper Canada twice, but met disaster 
at the hands of an Air Force team from Trenton. Soccer 
seemed to "catch on" like wildfire, and in 1941 there were 
enough people playing soccer to merit the awarding of 
colours. A Middleside colour was awarded to the mem- 
bers of the team, with a half colour for exceptional players. 
A junior team was organized, but there were still too few 
players to make it a success. Bigside had an excellent 
season winning all its School games, but once again the 
Air Force teams proved to be too powerful. Bethune won 
the inaugural House Game 7-0. In 1942 the number of 
soccer players again took a large jump. For the first time 
a first team colour was awarded in soccer. In 1943 soccer 
reached its peak in the number of players, with over two- 
fifths of the School playing. As in the other major sports 
soccer was divided into three sides. Bigside again won 
the majority of its games, but the highlight of the season 


Gaunt, R. H. l'44-'48). Rick entered the portals of Port Hope 
on a beautiful rainy day in September 1944, and was immediately 
shipped out to the cottage. His one year stay in the wilderness, 
however, did not weaken his will to succeed, as he gained "the 
second year trophy" and excelled on the playing fields. In his 
third year Rick settled in bottom flat Brent, and although he was 
a quiet likeable chap, we often ran dangers on entering his room. 
That year he again starred in sports, being captain and most 
valuable player on the basketball team, and a member of the 
Little Big Four Championship cricket team. In his final year, 
after a steady climb. Rick was made Head Prefect. He carried 
his job with dignity at all times being the perfect host for visitors, 
and a steady guiding hand for the School. His sports achieve- 
ments this year wore nothing less than spectacular; he was voted 
co-holder of the cup for the most valuable player on Bigside foot 
ball, and the Kicking and Catching cup; he captained the cham- 
pionship basketball team, and gained the most valuable player 
award for the second year in a row, as well as a distinction cap; 
he also captained the cricket team, and in addition picked up a 
soccer and squash colour. He was also sports editor of "The 
Record", until he resigned to study (?) In all, a very fine record, 
Rick. The whole School wishes you the best of luck and hopes 
you will visit us often. 

Watts, R. L. ('43-'48). In his studies Ron was both a brain 
and a hard worker. He nearly always led his Form and he ex- 
celled in History and English. Although Ronnie's weakest depart- 
ment was athletics, he was an enthusiastic devotee; he was 
Captain of the second soccer team, where he earned half first 
team colours, and Captain of Middleside Cricket, an excellent 
record. He was Captain of Junior Basketball, and made the first 
team for two years. It would be virtually impossible to find an 
extra-curricular group with which Watts was not actively associa- 
ted. He was Editor-in-Chief of the "Record", a Crucifer in the 
Sacristans, President of the Dramatic Society, President of the 
Political Science Club, Vice-President of the Debating Society and 
even a member of the Brent House Chess team. Due no doubt 
to lack of time, he was forced to pass up the Billiard Club. Too 
bad, Ron! Needless to say he was a Prefect and an officer in the 
Cadet Corps. We might add that Ronnie was a swell guy and 
popular even with tlie New Boys. Oh yes, he won a scholarshij) 
to Trinity College and of course we wish him the best of luck. 

McDowell, M. F. ('43-'48). When Marty first "swung" into 
Brent House in '43 he soon realized what a mistal^e he had made 
and quickly moved up to the gym. where he has remained ever 
since. Gym. was Marty's life and in his final year he captained 
one of our finest teams — a team which came a very close second 
in the Ontario championships, while Marty placed third in the 
individual count. He did leave the gym. at times and at one such 
time he became soccer captain, having this distinction for two 
years, was Head Sacristan and was also News Editor of the 
Record and h member of the Political Science Club. He won the 
Cadet Cup in '46 and this year was our first cadet to be chosen 
for an Air Force flying scholarship. Marty made a great number 
of friends while at T.C.S. and was always known for his willing- 
ness to help others. He was made a Prefect in his final year for 
his contributions to School life, his qualities of leadership and his 
popularity. He is on his way to study medicine in Toronto and 
we wish him the best of luck. 

Bruce, S. B. ('45-'48). In the fall of 1945, Windsor's Waker- 
ville Collegiate lost Stu while T.C.S. gained an outstanding athlete 
and promising prefect material. He soon established a name for 
himself as a swell fellow and a football player. When winter came 
he proved himself at hockey and in the summer term he turned 
out for track. In his final year Stu was captain of both first team 
football and hockey, and in addition he was made Senior Prefect 
of Bethune House. Stu was in the VI A Form where he worked 
hard and consistently so that there is little doubt that he will do 
well in whatever he undertakes in the years to come. These are 
not the only things that he devoted his time to, for he was fre- 
quently seen on the tennis courts, even taking part in the House 
tournament. Besides this, he took up skiing during his last winter 
and it is rumoured that he is well on his way to mastering this 
sport. Stu is pioneering up in the Georgian Bay region this sum- 
mer to get into condition for next year's football season. Good 
luck at Western, Stu. 

Goodbody, H. P. ('43-'48). "Goody" is the only member of 
the School w'ho can claim the record of having roomed with 
.Snowdon for five years (Ed's note: who else would want to?' 
Huds came, saw, and in his last year both conquered us and was 
conquered. (J for Joks). Quite incidentally, in his last year he 
was a member of Bigside Football and Hockey. The star goaler 
in hockey, his performance in the second U.C.C. game, regardless 
of the fact that he was inspired, will not soon be forgotten. Also 
a Devotee, Goody is one of few boys in the School who gained 
track colours. While never accused of being a scholar. Goody did 
have, however, literary aspirations and was immeasurably shaken 
when his one contribution to the "Record" was not printed. Goody 
was renowned for his sharp and ready wit which left many an 
opponent flat in a verbal contest. He was, undoubtedly, one of 
the most popular boys in the School, and for his qualities of 
leadership, dependability and all-round good nature he was ap- 
pointed a School Prefect. Headed for McGill and Commerce, 
Goody will no doubt not only make his first million but as many 
friends again as he made here. •Unlucky in words, lucky in 
:" All the best, Goody. 


Williamson, J. P. ('44-'48). Peter Williamson, "Willie" as he 
was known at T.C.S., entoied the Junior School at the tender 
age of twelve. Although not exactly an "ace" at sports, he fully 
made up for this in the field of studies, being branded a "brain" 
in his first year. He carried this through his four years in the 
Senior School, having boon Head Boy and Chancellor's Prize Man 
in his last two years, a record which has seldom been equalled. 
His interests included the Library, where he helped Mr. Maier as 
Head Librarian, the "Record" in which he was Assistant Editor, 
the Pohtical Science Club, and the Debating Society, where he 
established an enviable reputation as a speaker. In his quiet way, 
Willie was well liked, and for his steady work around the School 
was made a School Prefect in his last year. 

Rogers, I. F. H. ('44-'48). "Buck" came to T.C.S. as a gang- 
ling new boy in the fall of 1944. Athletically he soon made a 
name for himself, being on tlie Bigside football and basketball 
squads for three years. In his final year he was voted, with Rick 
Gaunt, the most valuable player on Bigside football. He was a 
member of the swimming team for four years and was probably 
the fastest back-stroker the School has ever had. He was also an 
excellent skier, being runner-up last year for the trophy given 
to the oest skier in the School, and winning it this year. He was 
a standout track performer, making the track team for four years. 
He was also a tennis star, being a finalist in this year's singles 
tournament. In his studies he always managed to do good work 
and occasionally .showed flashes of brilliance! For his all-round 
ability he was made a Prefect in his final year. He is leaving us 
this year for the University of Toronto where his prowess on the 
playing field is sure to make a deep impression. 

Snowdon, D. A. H. ('43-'48). "Unc" was the only boy in the 
School who roomed with Goodbody for five years. (Ed. note: 
Crazy?) Denny roared into T.C.S. in '43 with a slightly dazed 
look, when he left in '48 he was also dazed, but for different 
reasons . . . Unc entered into almost every aspect of School life. 
In his last year he was on Bigside soccer and basketball, as well 
as being a member of the Debating Society and the Political 
Science Club. Besides this, Unc was considered somewhat of an 
"intellectual" and was one of the top boys in his form. He was 
best known for his own likeable self, and was made a House Pre 
feet in his final year. Everything he undertook he did exceptionally 
well and we know he will continue to do the same at Trinity 

Carson, R. S. ('43-'48). Westy Boy, Big Dick, or Richard 
"Speed" Carson (the latter is the subject's choice), was known 
around School as the boy with the "butter will melt in my mouth" 
expression. Nothing could be more deceiving, for the boy hailing 
from Calgary was anything but a butter in my mouth typo, 
especially on the football field where despite pre-game injuries 
for two years in a row, he won liis first team football colours on 
the basis of the very few games he did get into, an envible record. 
Westy thrust a somewhat tentativ(> hand into basketball foi- a 
year or so and was .satislied witli Middkvside colours. In his last 
\iar whicli was also his fiftli, lie devoted more time to what he 
calls his chief amusement — study ! a policy which paid off. ' He 


won half team Oxford Cup colours last year; and was made a 
House Prelect, a promotion he well deserved. He was elected 
Treasurer of the Political Science Club, a post he filled admirably, 
as it requires along with a certain amount of brawn, a perpetual 
good nature. These two qualities combine to make him extremely 
well liked, and he won many a lifelong friend during his school 
years. Our best wishes go with him to U.B.C. next year where 
he will undoubtedly come through in grand style just as he did 
at Tiinity. Good luck, Westy Boy! 

Hall, M. ('44-'48). Mike ploughed his way up to T.C.S. in 1944 
and easily settled down. Let it never be said though that he let 
his environment get the better of him. To the end he could never 
?top a pig going through a gate. But Mike did a lot for the School 
and he well deserved his final rank of House Prefect. He got 
Bigside colours in both Football and Hockey and was in the semi- 
finals of the Tennis tournament. Mike also was very talented 
in his studies and received a Maths Scholarship to Varsity at the 
end of the year. Mike didn't go out with girls much. He believed 
in spending his money on more useful pursuits. Let's all be look- 
ing forward to seeing Mike again on the Old Boy's week-end. 

Hughes, A. G. T. ('44-'48). Pudgy entered the portals of 
Bethune House some four years ago, a ruddy-faced nipkin from 
the darkened shores of Jamaica; now he leaves the School, a 
darkened-faced nipkin from the ruddy shores of Jamaica, and a 
House Prefect. ITiroughout his stay in the School, Pudge has 
kept his radiant ( ? ) humour and wit, in fact this was so radiant 
that some of the reading staff didn't appreciate it. On the fields 
of battle nipkin showed much aggressive power; he was a re- 
habilitated football player from the soccer team, captain of the 
natators, and a staunch Middleside cricketer. Although Pudge 
had some doubts about his exams, we feel sure of his success at 
university. If you can tear yourself away from "les belles 
femmes" come and see us often, and bon voyage, Pudgy. 

Mclntyre, D. D. ('44-'48). T.C.S. first saw Herbie as one of 
the "elite" cottage new boys in 1944. The following year he made 
Bigside football and became an exceptionally good lineman. He 
was on Bigside for three years, distinguishing himself by his 
rugged line work and his annual touchdown. In his last year he 
was elected vice-captain. He was also on Middleside cricket for 
three years and was a skiing enthusiast. He took a keen interest 
in School life and was a member of the Political Science Club, 
the Gun Club and an ex-member of the smoker. He was also on 
the Record staff as a typist. In his studies Herb was a consistent 
worker and always did well. In his final year he was granted 
his Senior privileges. He goes from us to Queen's where we feel 
sure he will succeed as he has here. 

Goering, P. L. ('43-'48). In September 1943, Pete Goering 
arrived at the School and soon acquired his brother's name of 
"Herm". Under the guiding hand of such Prefects as Parker and 
Beament he soon began to .^how his many and varied abilities. 
He earned his Littleside and Middleside lootball colours and was 
on the first team in his last year. He hurled the javelin and 
discus on the track team and won his first team Gym. Colours. 


But Horm had many other merits. He was a Sacristan and a 
member ot the "Record" stalt and his linai year was head Choir 
boy. He was a member of the Sixth Form for two years and a 
Senior. I think we should also mention his prowess on the Bethune 
terrace where he was often seen in dark glasses and a white cap 
careening around on his hands. He is now at U. of T. taking 
Architecture and we all wish him the best of luck for the future. 

McPherson, D. B. ('44-'48). Dave, throughout his four year 
stay in Bethune House, was one of the best liked boys in the 
School. Although light in stature, Dave was substitute quarter- 
back on Bigside Football, being known for his passing accuracy, 
and was awarded a half-first team colour. On the ice he was a 
smooth play-maker and a fine member of Bigside hockey, gaining 
his colours. However, tennis was Dave's best sport as he easily 
won the Senior Championship, after being runner-up the previous 
year. In his last year he was appointed a Senior for his all-round 
interest in school life. He was on the "Record" staff and a mem 
ber of the Political Science Club. Best of luck Dave, and we are 
sure that R.M.C. is gaining a good citizen. 

Alley, P. H. R. ('44-'48). Pete came to the School in '44 and 
for his first year he was one of the "Cottage Boys". Since this 
was the last year that that part of the School was kept in opera- 
tion he has the dubious distinction of being one of the last boys 
to room there. Right from the beginning it was seen that Pete 
had above average intelligence. "He continued to grow in wis- 
dom — and so on — " until, in his last year, he was a member of VI 
Scholarship, a lively member of the Political Science Club, the 
consciencious secretary of the Debating Club, a member of the 
Record Staff and a Sacristan. In the field of sports his main 
occupation was rugby which he drank, ate and thought all through 
the first term. This year he got his first team colours and was con- 
sidered to be one of the best linemen in the School. For all these 
•'extra-curricular activities" Pete was made a Senior. He is going to 
Trinity College next year and we hope that he will be able to carry 
on with the same distinction and drive that has brought him 
through his school years so successfully. 

Kingnnan, A. ('44-'48). Ab, another stalwart gi-aduate of Sel- 
wyn House, Montreal, first found his way into Bethune House in 
the fall of '44. From the very beginning he showed more than 
average ability in both the athletic and academic spheres. Over 
the years Ab became more and more a part of the School, taking 
part in many outside activities. In his last year, in which he was 
in the Scholarship form, he won his first team hockey colour, half 
team soccer colour, and, having won his Middleside cricket colour 
the year before, gave up a possible chance to be on Bigside in 
order to concentrate on his work. Besides his athletic programme, 
he found time for the Political Science Club and the Record. As 
a result of his popularity and his willingness to take part in every 
phase of School life he was made a Senior in his final year. Ab 
leaves us to take up a medical career at McGill where we wisii 
him the best of luck and hope that he will meet lots of pretty 

Wood. R. M. ('46-'48). When Dick cam to T.C.S. from Hill- 
lield in the autumn of '46 it didn't take him long to show his many 
talents and to make friends. A better than average runner, he 
was in the Oxford Cup for two years, coming second and third. 
His most outstanding athletic prowess, however, was on the ice, 
where for the past two seasons he handed out crushing bodychecks 
on defence. He also helped coach Littleside B football and made 
the first cricket team in his last year. In his spare time he was 
often seen on the campus throwing a hard ball to other friends 
of his Irom the Mountain city. In his second year, Dick was 
made a Senior and he will be missed very much in the School. 

Rhea, L. D. ('45-'48). Larry came into the hallowed halls of 
Bethune in '45 and made a name for himself as, a joker and a 
"Rhea of sunshine" in a very short time. Though not an athlete, 
Larry played Littleside rugby, squash and was already picking up 
a few of the fundamentals of tennis, such as how to throw a 
racket without breaking it. In his final year Larry devoted most 
of his time to the Political Science Club, Debating, "Record", 
Sacristanial field, but as the lead in last year's School play "Out- 
ward Bound", his natural rendition of Tom Prior, the drunk, was 
so well acted that he won the prize for the best actor of 1948. 
Lawrence was known for his golden voice, which has always been 
a challenge to Bing Crosby, and he tried out Spring, Winter and 
Summer for the Choir, showing his natural unselfishness, for 
while he did not get the solo in Good King Wenceslas, he still kept 
trying. He officialed the Carnegie and curated the Museum gal- 
lantly in his second year. For his keenness and School spirit, 
Larry was made a Senior. He is now taking medicine at McGill 
and let us hope that plastic surgery may straighten him out. 

Vernon, H. H. ('45-48). Hugh didn't amble up the hill slowly, 
as most boys seemed to do, nor did he run up the hill quickly, 
but he came up in a taxi. You see he used his head and continued 
to do so for his stay from 1945 to 1948, by attempting to outsmart 
the Prefects in his first year, and then trying to outsmart the new 
boys in his last. I might add that Hugh, "Sis" for short, did not 
always succeed in his first attempts and paid the supreme sacrifice 
of six of the best. But Hugh graduated from T.C.S. one of the 
most respected and best liked boys in the School. In his last year, 
he was a member of VI Scholarship, and although he didn't al- 
ways come first, he usually held down last position without 
too much difficulty. In the field of athletics, Hugh came through 
with flying "colours". He was a staunch and a very valuable 
memher of Bigside Rugby and also of the Basketball team. He 
was also a very good swimmer being on the team for three years. 
In fact there wasn't anything that Hugh didn't do except jolly old 
cricket. In his last year, he was made a Senior, and very de- 
servingly too. The whole School wishes him the best of luck in 
his career of forestry, and we all know he'll do weU. Good luck, 
Hugh boy I Happy hunting! 

Fulford, D w. i'44-'4S). With a copy of TIME in one hand 
and an electric razor in the other "P'oom" Fulford, Brockville's 
gift to T.C.S., entered Bethune in 1944 and during four years 
carved himself a sizeable niche in thv life of the School. In his 
last year he was president of a very successful Debating Society 

















w "- 












and his witty speeches from the floor often succeeded in "cap- 
tivating the audience". He was also the hard working secretary 
of the Political Science Club and Feature Editor of the Record. 
He succeeded in making the Bigside football squad and in addition 
was a vociferous member of the Dramatic Society. Besides tak- 
ing part in all these activities, Foom managed to come near the 
top of the VIS Form every month, and carried off the Rigby 
Histor> prize and the Founder's prize for Science. Although one 
entered his room at the risk of being hit over the head with Web- 
ster's unabridged dictionary, ont was always rewarded by some 
of his gems of wisdom, and his sparkling wit will long be remem- 
bered by the residents of bottom flat. Foom intends to spend a 
year abroad and will then continue his studies at Varsity. Best 
of luck, Foom! 

Drynan, W. I. K. ('46-'48). Bill blasted his way into Brent 
House in the fall of '46 for a brief two year stay. Determined to 
uphold the glory of Hamilton, he immediately turned out for Big- 
side football where he was making good his bid for end position. 
Unfortunately, a knee injury spoiled his chances for much athletic 
success that year. This put at his disposal lots of time for his 
studies, but, well .... I By spring Bill's knee was sufficiently 
healed to allow him to play cricket where he won his half team 
colours as a member of the Championship Squad. Returning in 
the fall. Bill again tried his hand at football and won his half 
team colours playing wingback. His good condition and strong 
legs carried him to a win in the gruelling Oxford Cup Race which 
this year was a good test of endurance. In the winter months 
Bill captained Middleside hockey and his continued effort was a 
great asset to the team. R.M.C. exams claimed Bill's attention 
during the summer term thus distracting him from cricket. Bill's 
ready smile, killing humour ( ? ) and his winning ways with the 
fairer sex should stand him. in good stead in the future. Anyway, 
best of luck wherever you go next year, Bill! 

Emery, D. J. ('44-'48). Cobourg's native son, pride and joy, 
"Brother Em" came to T.C.S. in 1944 as part of a plan to improve 
Port Hope - Cobourg relationships. Em's cheei^y countenance and 
thorough knowledge of agricultural philosophy made him a wel- 
come asset to the School. As a crashing inside on Bigside foot- 
ball Em won his colours, and in his first year at basketball de- 
veloped into a real prospect. When he was not fooling around 
with Hugh Vernon, Em was at the books and great things arc 
expected of his academic future. Em was always a part of School 
life in all its various forms and it was certainly true that if there 
was anything on, Em was in on it. The School will miss his 
"spirit" next year, but we know that at Toronto Em will continue 
to walk in the way of the fun-loving and increase his host of 

Boulden, J. F. D. ('45-'48). John was the victim of a knee in- 
jury early in the football season and as a result was sidelined 
from most athletics during the year. Nevertheless, what he did 
accomplish gave us a good indication of what we might have ex 
pected had he not been injuit^d. He was awarded Middleside 
football colours merely on his promise in early practices. John 
was one of the few high scoring forwards on the Juvenile hockey 
team and again was awarded Middleside colours. Track was one 


of his strong points, but he could not participate because of that 
same injury, although the year before lie had been one of the 
stars. John'was always in the A P'ornis and kept up a good aver;'ge 
while indulging in such extracurricular activities as Ciucifer, 
member of the Choir and a leading light in the Dramatic Society. 
He was a Senior and a good one, altliough most of the New Boys 
were bigger than he was. From the School Play we would say 
that John has natural abilities as a bartender but evidently he 
does not agree as he has enrolled at Trinity College. 

Wismar S. ('44-'48). Stu came to T.C.S. in the autumn of '44 
from \'ancouver, where he is now going to University. It didn't 
take him long to fit in with the gang. A better than average 
athlete, Stu was best known on the basketball floor, where for 
three years he played on the first team, playing outstandingly 
the last two seasons. In his last year he was captain of Middle- 
side football; he was on the track team, and, after a couple of 
years on Middleside cricket, played with the firsts last year. He 
was also on the Record staff, and a Senior in his final year. All 
his many friends here wish him the best of luck in the future. 

Harvie, F. N. S. ('45-'48). Neil came to T.C.S. in '45, where 
his ready smile and cheerful manner soon won him many friends. 
He was the sort of person who shone at nothing but did very well 
in anything he attempted. He was captain of Juvenile Hockey in 
his last year as well as being vice-captain of Middleside football. 
Besides this, Neil was a good skier and a coming tennis player. 
He was also a member of the Choir, and in his spare time belonged 
to VI A. In return for all this, Neil was made a Senior. He is 
now following up his first love, agriculture, at Alberta. We wish 
him well! 

Conyers, W. M. ('43-'48). Billy struggled through the door of 
Bethune House in the fall of '43 and, since he couldn't get out 
again, firmly entrenched himself as a "character". His chief in- 
terest was pipe smoking but, between puffs, "Wee Willie's" two 
hundred odd pounds won him a place on the Bigsidc line, where 
he won half-team colours. Besides football "Big Billy" had a 
first team colour in soccer. With such people as Mclntyre and 
Mackenzie, Billy was the basis of Mr. Gwynne-Timothy's annual 
cricket effort on Middleside. At present he is working at home 
in Bermuda, where we wish him success. 

Brodeur, M. T. H. <'42-'48). Since Toner first bounced into the 
Junior School 'wa\ back in the fall of '42. he has been a continued 
.source of enlightenment to T.C.S. His great knowledge, especially 
in Latin i ?t, has added much to the intellectual atmosphere of the 
School. But what the student body asked more than anything 
else was how could one so sm.dl do as much as Mike did in the 
athletic field? In his final year he was not only vice-captain of 
the squash team but also att.iimd Bigsidc Crick(>t colours and as 
a snap on the first football team he aluays dazed the opposition 
l>y crawling thn.ugh their legs to maki- aiiia/ing tackles. He 
found time to b»- a Sacristan and foi- all these merits he was made 
a House Officer. We wish him continued success at McGill. 


Wright, M. E. ('43-'48). In 1945 Mr. Tottenham sent a "Kiddy- 
car" up to the Senior School after having had it on his hands for 
two years. It seemed to get around fairly well — especially the 
Oxford Cup Course where it picked up its Half Colours in 1946 
and in its final year "Kitty", as it was affectionately called, was a 
Crucifer and able Sacristan, a flash member of the news staff of 
the "Record", a debater, and a member of the Political Science 
Club. "Kitty" had a high voice frequency which he turned to ad- 
vantage in the two last mentioned activities. Having been by no 
means one of the dumber bunnies around the School, he should 
do well at Trinity and we wish him all the success he deserves. 

Drummond, T. K. ('44-'48). Kev rolled through the portals of 
Brent House in the fall of 1944, a pudgy cherub. He rolled out 
last June, pudgy, but no cherub! The entire four-year stay was 
brightened by his gay abandonment and wit. After a successful 
climb through the School, Kev last year gained his House Officer 
privileges, and was a stellar defenceman on the first hockey team. 
Kev was also a natator of some note, representing the School 
twice in the Little Big Four meet. In Sixth Form he took, and 
passed, seven subjects with more than average marks. Our loss 
is McGill's gain, and we all wish Kev the brightest future possible. 
Watch out, femmes de Montreal! 

Morgan, J. S. ('44-'48). "Stu" came to T.C.S. in the fall of 
'44, as a refugee from Selwyn House. Not athletically inclined, 
ho usually tried out for teams, and although he seldom made 
them, often did yeoman duty as a team manager, in his last year 
acting as manager of Middleside rugby. "Stu" shone best in his 
studies, especially in Maths and Sciences, and entering 3A in his 
new boy year waltzed his way through the "A" forms, finishing 
in VI Scholarship. Also an artist, "Stu" provided many excellent 
drawings for the "Record", and helped out willingly with play 
sets and decorations for dances. Other extra-curricular activities 
included the "Record" staff, on which he worked three years, 
ending his career there as a Business Manager. In his last year 
he was also a member of the Political Science Club and also 
received a well deserved promotion to House Officer. "Stu" leaves 
us for McGill where he intends to study things Physical, and hopes 
to finish his academic career with a stay at M.I.T. 

Cross, D. H. ('46-'48). Dalt appeared in the School in the fall 
of '46 as if quite by accident. He was soon noted for his fiendish 
laugh which often rent the air on middle flat Bethune in his 
second year, and his imitation of Frankenstein which was second 
to none. Though not an athlete, Dalt worked hard at soccer and 
track, and performed a notable achievement when he came fifth 
in a very difficult Oxford Cup race. He was a lusty member of 
the Choir, an able debater, and a member of the Political Science 
Club. As Co-Business Manager of the "Record", he stands to lose 
some prize money if the record of twenty-two pages of advertising 
is beaten. A member of VI Scholarship, he worked hard and is 
sure to do well in his future studies. A deserving House Officer 
in his last year, Dalt added something to School life which will 
be missed by his many friends this year. All the best at Western, 


Burland, N. T. ('43-'48). Noel Burland was one of the few 
boys to have the distinction of staying five years in the School, 
and one of the even fewer boys to spend four and a half years in 
the Senior School and one-half year in the Junior School. After 
this triumphant entry Noel sank into comparative oblivion for a 
while only to emei^ge in his final year as a Sacristan, an indis 
pensable 'member of Bigsidc Soccer, and an equally important 
member of the Debating Society. For all these important con- 
tributions to School life, he was appointed a House Officer. For 
amusement, he used to accompany Frank Cooper across to Tuck 
for a cup of tea, or up to the Hall to play a symphony or two. 
Noel is now going to try to complete his education at Trinity 
College, Toronto, where we wish him the best of luck. 

Cooper, F. H. S. ('43-'48). Phoebe, although not the outdoor 
type, made Littleside basketball in his new boy year and for four 
years tried out for Littleside soccer and probably would have 
made the team this year if he had not been over-age. He has, 
however, made numerous contributions to the Record, helped out 
as a Sacristan, been in the Choir for five years, and in his last 
year organized Friday night music appreciation hours in the Hall. 
He became interested in music while at the School and intends 
to study it at University, aiming at composition. He has com 
posed a number of pieces, two of which he played in the Hall on 
the night before Speech Day. We all hope his talents will be 
rewarded in a successful career. 

Macklem, O. R. i'43-'48). Dick's debut to T.C.S. was at the 
Junior School in 1943. After a year there he entered the Senior 
School for a four year sojourn graduating in the spring of '48. 
Dick's winning smile and his unassuming good-nature have won 
him many friends at T.C.S. Being rather small in size, Dick was 
no stalwart of any of the main fast teams; nevertheless he did 
gain colours on Little and Middleside soccer. But of worthier note 
is his natural ability in racquet games. Squash and tennis were 
his favourites. In squash Dick earned his half-first team colours 
as a result of his strong play. He was a good student, maintain- 
ing a fair average in the "A" forms throughout his senior school 
years, and in his final year, was made a House Officer. We wish 
him a successful and happy time at Queen's University. 

Spencer, E. ('44-'48). Ed stalked into the School in the fall 
of 1944 with his familiar lope, and was unanimously dubbed 
"Dumbo". During his four years at School he had considerable 
success in the scholastic field. But the soccer field was his first 
love. After several years of Middleside, he became a trusted 
member of the first team. Although not born a basketball player, 
Ed certainly tried hard and earned a position on the first team 
in his last year. His efforts brought him an appointment as 
House Officer in his final term. The School wishes Dumbo the 
best at the University of New Brunswick. 

Bronfman, C. R. (•4.=5-'48). "Cha/' Ccime to T.C.S. in 1945 and 
immediately enten-d into llie life of th.- School. Aided by his 
unceasing flow ol conversation and his love of his home "town", 
Dick Ii-vin's Canadiens received plenty more praise than they 

deserved. Charles in his final year was a House Officer and pai • 
ticipated in many School activities. Besides playing on Bigside 
Soccer and Juvenile Hockey, he was a central attraction of the 
Smoker "Society". Being a keen history student (1st clas-; 
honours), he joined the Political Science Club. He was a social 
light and some of the feasts he threw are legendary. We hear 
that blue letters from a certain B. Magnificae often reached him. 
Charles is now at McGill whei'e he is continuing his "studies". 
Good luck. 

Banks, D.E. ('44-'48). "Looner" squeezed into Brent House in 
the fall of '44. He left us last June, a House Officer and a Sacris- 
tan and headed for McGill University. He was a member of the 
intellectual set, associating with Frank Cooper and Noel Burland. 
We wish Dave the best of luck and a continuance of his successes 
in Montreal. 

Brodeur, A. W. H. ('45-'48). Fat Pat (only because it rhymes 
of course) Brodeur, blew gustily into the J.S. after spending the 
first few years of his schooling at Roslyn School, Westmount. He 
was obviously the main joy in Mr. Scott's life in the Senior School, 
for three years. He graduated from the VI Form with a good matri- 
culation and is now lending his sunny countenance and voluptuous 
personality to McGill University. Pat was an enthusiastic mem- 
ber of the first squash team, often endeavouring to, cuid some- 
times succeeding, in beating certain members of the teaching staff 
at their own game. Because of an unfortunate knee injury Pat 
did not feel much action on the Middleside field last year although 
he tried his hardest whenever possible. Everyone in the School 
knew Pat, from the newest new boy to the Head Prefect. (How 
could they miss him?) His spontaneous voice, his raising flush 
and his flaming yellow hair (although he was actually a brunette) 
leave us with an image long to be remembered in the halls of 
T.C.S. We wish him the best of luck at McGill and are looking 
forward to seeing him as an Old Boy. 

Harvey, V. L. ('46-'48). Viggo came to us in the autumn of 
'46 from Shawinigan Falls, Quebec. He was very quiet and kept 
very much to himself. Because of this he was greatly respected. 
He partook in all forms of School life, and although he never 
shone in any particular sport, he always played hard. However, 
in his last year he really distinguished himself as a formidable 
member of the Rabbit League All-Star Team. Viggo was no sludge 
at his work either, and in his final year led his class in the final 
examinations. Good luck, Viggo. 

Ketchum, D. V. ('45-'48). "Dibble" drifted rather dizzily into 
the Junior School some six years ago where he got his J.S. foot- 
ball, gym., hockey and cricket colours. In the Senior School 
Dave was awarded his Middleside soccer and cricket colours, and 
was also a member of the "Smoker" football team, the only unde- 
feated team of the '47 season. Last year Dave was made a 
Sacristan and also did a very good job as one of Mr. Maier's 
husky stage hands. This summer Dave worked up at Timmins 
with the Depai'tment of Land.s and Forests, and is now com 
pleting his Upper School at Oakwood Collegiate in Toronto. We 
all wish him the very best of luck. 


Mackenzie-Kennedy, G. L. ('47-'48). Geoff came to us last year 
from South Africa and although he stayed at T.C.S. for only one 
year, he made a fine record for himself. He played on the First 
Soccer Team and was awarded a Half-First Team Colour. Un- 
fortunately, Geoff received a severe back injury which prevented 
him from participating in Track and Cricket. I believe that Geoff 
was the first "Ham" T.C.S. has ever had. While at School he 
built himself a short-wave sending and receiving station. Many 
boys spent a few amazing hours with Geoff as he contacted radio 
friends all over the globe, from room 108 Brent. Geoff was also 
a Sergeant in the Cadet Corps and a strong member of the Choir. 
He will long be remembered for the fine job he did as soloist in 
the carol service. We all wish Geoff the best of luck at McGill. 

McGregor, J. K. ('46-'48). Duiing the autumn term of '46, 
"Big Jum" slid into Bethune House on a Gillette razor. He attended 
classes regularly, was often seen shaving in the corridors, was 
later known as the "Gay Blade fiom Hamilton". Anything that 
could be talked about, he would talk about — especially anatomy 
and operations. "Jum" had the unique honour of obtaining a 
third in Zoology due to his own teaching. He was a credit to the 
Track team and played Bigside Football in his last year. An 
excellent long-distance runner, "Jum" placed second in the annual 
Oxford Cup race. He used to carry on a friendly (?) feud with 
fJmery on the top flat but at year's end, it was a draw! Although 
not on the Debating team, he was always a very prominent 
speaker, offering suggestions on how to better the government 
etc. We wish Jim all the luck in his coui se of medicine at Western, 
and hope to see him soon as a full-fledged M.D. 

Pepler, S. W. E. ('45-'48). Stan, an immigrant from Quebec, 
came to the School in '45. Although rather quiet and unassum- 
ing, he made friends easily. His most spectacular achievement 
in his first year was gaining his Littleside football colours, show- 
ing considerable ability at the game. In his last year, besides 
being one of the bottom flat boys, he had his Middleside football 
colours, was a Sacristan, a lusty member of the basses, and one 
of the School's better skiers. He then proceeded to heighten his 
dignity by joining the Smoker. Crowning all his glories, he was 
made a corporal in the House drill. All in all he has done well 
at the School and his many friends wish him well at the Naval 

Vallance, G. V. ('46-'48). George arrived in this fair com- 
munity in September '46 and at once became known as a constant 
source of lun and amusement. In VIB he will always be remem 
bered as the one character who could even make Latin interesting, 
and while doing so, he did well himself. As an athlete he dis- 
played a great enthusiasm, playing on Middleside Rugby, Hockey, 
and Cricket. We will all miss that hairy face and the twinkle in 
the eye which was always part of him. Though sorry to see you 
go, Georg»\ we wish you the best of luck at McMaster. 



was the first football team against the first soccer team 
which was won by the Soccerites 4-2. In 1944 most of the 
English boys began to return home, but the great 1943 in- 
flux of Bermudians countered this, and with Harry Cox as 
captain, Bigside Soccer enjoyed what was probably the 
best season of its existence. For a second year in a row 
Bigside Football again "bit the dust". By 1945 the last 
of the English boys had left, but in spite of this, Bigside 
enjoyed another successful season. Soccer was hard hit 
by the football draft of 1946, but once again managed to 
win most of their games. The season's star attraction, 
however, v/as the Master's game, which, despite the valiant 
efforts of Mr. Key, the School won 7-1. 

Looking back over the years one to the con- 
clusion that Bigside Soccer is one of the most successful 
teams in the School. Its lifetime "batting average" is .613, 
which is good as it stands, but if we exclude games v/ith 
Air Force teams and count only School games the average 
rises to .728! One may ask what is the reason for this 
success? When your coach is a "flying Parson" or a "drop- 
kicking Canon", as he has been referred to, you just can't 

At present. Soccer has the status of a semi-major 
sport. While it cannot compete with football in popu- 
larity, it is played by about one-third of the School. While 
the English boys who started it have left, soccer has shown 
no signs of dying out, and with our "Flying Parson" as 
coach, soccer can look forward to many more successful

"iniiTn n jr 


During the middle ages there lived in Scotland a seer 
whose prophecies of things to come have been proven by 
time to have been remarkably accurate. For instance, he 
foretold that one day an iron monster would roar across 
Scotland from sea to sea and he described the exact path 
it would take. To-day the Glasgow-Edinburgh express 
follows that route. Again, he told of three global wars 
that would be fought in the early twentieth century; two 
of these have come to pass — the third seems quite 
imminent. This prophet also said that some day a great 
sea creature would be cast up on the shore of a lake in 
Scotland and inside it would be found a king's ransom in 
jewels .... The Monster of Loch Ness. 

Lady Montagu-Spenser has for many years spent the 
shooting season at her lodge in Scotland, situated on some 
three thousand acres of excellent grouse moor and deer 
forest which run down to the shore of grey, sullen Loch 
Ness. Her husband was drowned in a fishing accident on 
that lake nearly twenty years ago. But Lady Spenser 
continues to live there part of the year and to hold large 
shooting parties during the season, attracted perhaps by a 
morbid fascination of the lake and of the legends associated 
with it. She firmly believes in the prophecy of the 
mediaeval seer and her reason for so doing is a sound one. 


Just before the war, something happened which gave 
Lady Montagu-Spenser and all who know of the legend 
considerable food for thought. Staying at her lodge that 
summer were a Lord and Lady Orville who, accompanied 
by their young children, had come up with several other 
London guests for a week's grouse-shooting. Wednesday 
had been a particularly good day and everyone was feeling 
in the best of spirits, for even the worst shots had bagged 
several brace each. Dinner that night was a festive affair, 
for Lady Spenser is well known for her excellent cellar and 
talented chef. Afterwards the Orvilles strolled down to 
the lakeshore with their children — the latter had been 
allowed to stay up late for a treat and were running about 
in noisy fashion. It was a beautiful summer evening — a 
full golden moon shone down from the starry sky, leaving 
a yellow path over the velvet lake. The air was fresh and 
warm, tinged with a smell of the sea. The family decided 
to go for a short row on the Loch. By this time the chil- 
dren were growing tired and had quietened down con- 
siderably. With Lord Orville rowing, the boat was about 
two hundred yards from shore when suddenly, for some 
perfectly inexplicable reason, the little craft tipped upside 
down and the family fell into the cold, dark water. There 
was really no cause for alarm — both were excellent swim- 
mers and they were not very far from shore. Telling his 
wife and the older child to hold onto the upturned boat, 
Lord Orville swam to shore with the younger. Although 
he was in evening dress he had no difficulty reaching the 
land, and then he swam back to the boat. Taking the other 
boy and telling his wife to follow, he set out a second time. 
It was very calm and he had soon reached shallow water, 
waded ashore and put down his little son. He then turned 
around to help his wife climb up the bank — she was no- 
where to be seen. 

Indeed, Lady Orville's body was never found and 
neither was the rowboat. There was no reason why she 
could not have swum that very short distance in the calm 


lake. She was young, in good health, and an extremely 
strong swimmer. Her husband had naturally assumed she 
was following him in and had not turned to look for her 
behind him. 

There the tragedy would have ended but for one 
reason. Lord Orville was a very wealthy man and at the 
time she apparently drowned, his wife was wearing a 
jewelled necklace insured at over £200,000 — more than 
$1,000,000. The insurance company sent up two veteran 
divers and a competent salvage crew to try to recover the 
body, as they wanted the necklace. 

The first diver went down and came up very shortly 
in a complete state of collapse. Never, he said, for any 
reason would he go down into Loch Ness again. The lake 
is bottomless and the sides are shelved — terrific under- 
currents had been pulling him under these ledges. It was 
pitch black, he said, and most eerie. The second diver had 
the same story and so efforts to recover Lady Orville's 
body have been abandoned. 

Perhaps it was sucked under one of the ledges, per- 
haps not. What had upset the boat on such a calm night? 
Why was Lady Orville unable to reach the shore? Lady 
Montagu-Spenser thinks she knows; the Loch Ness monster 
has taken Lady Orville to fulfil his destiny. If ever this 
creature is found he will contain the king's ransom in 
jewels of which the prophet spoke so many years ago.

First Movement 

The river crashes by as myriad whitecaps spume 
Among the rocks: a thousand whirlpools spell the doom 
Of any being swept their way; the whispering surf 
Caresses and monotonously wears the banks 
And bears the silt toward its mouth. The centre of 


The river's course receives the strong caresses of 
Some unseen force that ever changes lineaments 
Along the way: the rocky bottom varies like 
The colours of the autumn leaves that hang above 
The rushing race. Rare reds and greens together move 
And blend, as sunlit rays rebound redundantly 
From off the mirrored mist. 

Second Movement 

In fissures of the rocks, 
Far from the lake's expanse, accumulated rains 
Become a brook, a stream, then river; through the plains 
The waters rush. Few scattered settlements embrace 
The sinewy curves, — in nature's desolation all 
Is beauty; here the vaulted sky-blue walls enthrall 
The wind; gay poplars, rustling, chattering; austere, 
Aloof, great pine trees standing silent, — symbols of 
The peace intended for the world of humans, if 
They would but listen to His plan. 

Third Movement 

As on and on 
The river flows, fresh waters join and swell the whole; 
The way is steep, where speed can build on speed: control 
Surmounted by fast, furious floods that spirt and squirt 
And spout and splash; then rush and gush and sluice and 

Till flat, less-graded land prevails. 

Fourth Movement 

And yet, again, 
Low rapids prompt a stepped-up pace; the water then 
Recalls the days when all was speed; but that was long 
Ago. Contentment dwells along these banks, for soon 
The journey will be o'er, — the lake is just ahead. 
The lake ! Where troubled water now can rest its head . . . 



A parallel we see between the river and 
A life. — they both begin with little; grow; then gain 
Experience on the long, hard road; at length, in Death, 
True peace attained. Remember that, though life is hard, 
God offers us a sweet reward: a life with Him, — 
An everlasting life — when ours on earth is done. 

— J. R. Ligertwood ('43-'45) 


It is amazing how much one can build, in the way of 
picturisation, from a simple sentence like that. 

At once one sees not just an old man, but a tired, 
tattered old man with two days' growth of beard and a 
limp. And ask a dozen people what they imagine from 
that sentence ; the chances are not one will say that he sees 
a rich, well-dressed man out for his morning stroll, with 
his limousine following at a discreet distance. 

That is because, unconsciously, we associate age in 
people with poverty, afflictions and ugliness. Although we 
know it is not so, we like to imagine that everyone over 
sixty years of age is as friendless as a baseball umpire, and 
as horrible to look at as a Frankenstein. 

When a book, or a coin, or a painting by Gainsborough 
becomes old, it is put in a museum to be "ummed" and 
"ah-ed" at; but when an honest-to-goodness, everyday 
human being reaches the three-quarter century mark; he 
is regarded as more fit for a zoo than a museum. 

The zoo, in this case, is not the kind where one goes 
on Sunday to see the giraffe, but a special variety speci- 
fically built for the aged and infirm and known as "The 
Old Folks' Home." Here the price for good care at 
moderate rates is the penalty of being photographed for 
the local paper above the explanation "eighty-three years 
old but remarkably well-preserved," and the other equally 
abhorred penalty of being stared at and pitied on Visitors' 


Why should these people be pitied? They should pity 
us. We tear from house to office to house, and so on "ad 
infinitum" while they do nothing but sit m the sun and 
play cribbage all day long. They can see all the movies 
and ball games which come to town. When they want to 
work they do so; when lazy, they sit and think. 

Thinking, which in this sense means meditating, is an 
occupation reserved almost entirely for the aged. No one 
before he retires can ever have time to think. All his time 
is taken up with doing. A person who is not doing some- 
thing every minute of the day is regarded as lazy or "high- 
brow" or anything else nasty v/hich comes to mind at the 
time. Upon reaching the age of retirement one starts to 
think, but what good is it? Now one is too old and un- 
stable to follow up these thoughts with actions. So sitting 
and thinking what one might have done or what others 
might do is the only alternative. Here, of course, there is 
unlimited possibility for meditation but little chance of 

Books were written for the purpose of stimulating 
thought and it is from them that an elderly person gets 
his "mind matter." However, a "doer" never dares to read 
because he fears that he would be regarded as a thinker. 
Thinking is not for young people! 

This inspired Ogden Nash to write 
"No one is well read 
Till they're practically dead."

This past summer I was fortunate enough to win a 
flying scholarship from the R.C.A.F. I found a new and 
interesting pastime, and one which I doubt I would ever 
have taken up if it had not been for this wonderful oppor- 
timity. There were seventeen other boys besides myself 
in the course and we had a marvellous time. 


In the morning we flew and in the afternoon there 
were lectures. Two instructors taught flying, nine of us in 
each group. We were usually up for about half to three- 
quarters of an hour and then we had the rest of the time 
off until one o'clock. The lectures were on Navigation, 
Meteorology and Airmanship. Strangely enough, four 
hours of classroom work each day during the holidays was 
not so boring as might be expected, and actually, all of us 
thoroughly enjoyed them. Our teachers were extremely 
good and made the work exceedingly interesting. 

In no time at all we covered the prescribed sixty hours 
and wrote our exams. This off our chests, we got down 
to flying all day and one by one my friends began to go 

The fatal day arrived. Five of the boys had already 
gone before me and had been duly initiated under an icy 
hose with a little grease and mud on the side. With a fare- 
well wave I climbed into the plane, closed the door and 
fastened my belt. As I taxied down the runway I realized 
that it was up to me to get the plane off the ground, circle 
the airport and set it down again. 

I called the tower and then checked my instruments 
and did my engine runup while waiting for clearance. Then 
over the radio came those fatal words: "DYS you are 
cleared for take-off." I returned with, "DYS Roger," and 
was away. My heart beat faster as I set the trim and re- 
leased the brakes. Holding the stick back, T began to 
shove on throttle. Slowly the plane gained speed as it 
rolled down the runway. With full throttle on I eased for- 
ward on the stick and lifted the tail off the ground; the 
end of the field loomed ever closer as I roared down the 
runway. Then with a slight bounce I found myself in the 
air. I held her there till I reached 75 m.p.h. Then I pulled 
back slightly on the stick, reset the trim, checked my in- 
struments and relaxed. 

As I gazed down below me I could see the objects 
gradually becoming smaller. Then it dawned on me; there 


I was all by myself up in the air ; I was actually flying and 
it gave me the most wonderful feeling. As I banked my 
little craft sharply over to the left, I could see the tiny dots 
below me and I felt like some lofty king looking down on 
his meagre subjects. 

But the hardest part was yet to come. It is easy 
enough to get a plane into the air but getting it down again 
is a different matter. I got my landing clearance, cut my 
throttle and started my approach. Slowly the altimeter 
dropped; 1000. 900, 800, 700, 600, while I held my speed 
just below 80 m.p.h. I headed slightly into the wind to 
counteract for the drift, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100. The ground 
seemed to be hurtling towards me as I approached the run- 
way. I eased back on the stick to begin my roundout, 
keeping the nose from dropping too rapidly. Slowly she 
settled and I felt a slight jolt as I touched the ground. I 
took off my earphones as I headed back to the hanger, and 
foimd the perspiration was rolling from my forehead. 

I taxied back and was duly soaked and greased. So 
passed the highpoint of one of the most enjoyable months 
I have ever spent, and I am eagerly awaiting the next holi- 
days, when I can continue one of the most fascinating 
sports there is — flying. 

—J. DePencier, VIB. 


The title of this short piece is hardly a fitting one. I 
write of names, it is true, but the names of which I write 
are of a special variety. In a sense they are historical 
names. Behind them there are many stories rich in human 
interest. Some are puzzles, some are chronicles, yet again 
some mean nothing at all. They have one thing in com- 
mon, each one represents an idle mind or a straying 
thought. They possess this wealth of curiosity, yet they 
are so often noticed as to be seldom seen. 


The names of which I speak are the names which sur- 
round me as I work. They are beneath my paper, imder 
my arms. If I raise my eyes they are there above my 
page. Always present, they are the words, the phrases, 
the snatches of drifting interest that adorn the surfaces 
of desks. It is indeed a strange school and a rare one too 
in which these evidences of blissful day-dreaming are not 

On this one desk out of the vast number that I might 
choose to sit in as I write, tthere are, by actual count, 
nearly thirty legible names and initials. Each of the hun- 
dreds of thousands of desks in the schools of the world 
would tell a different version of the same old story. 

Take as an example the word "Saul" scratched lightly 
through the varnish. What could it possibly mean? It is 
obviously not new. The dirt is ground into it. It is not 
as plain as it once was, and it could easily be as old as the 
desk itself. Could some unoccupied hand in a history class 
have defaced the seat in reverence of a long-dead Hebrew 
king? Perhaps even the unwitting donor to posterity whose 
handiwork is left for us to puzzle over has forgotten his 

The commonest of all names found in schools are those 
of girls. There are, I am sure, few boys who, while sitting 
through the torture of a particularly uninteresting class, 
have not let their minds wander to more pleasant thoughts 
of the fair sex. Many have left their erstwhile friends' 
names to be a mystery to us. If the engraved and inked 
lines could speak they might tell of a dance or a picnic and 
a happy memory in a masculine world. The mystery re- 
mains. These names still mean something to somebody — 
possibly a great deal — perhaps just a face from the past. 

These writings, although suggestive of many things, 
are a great deal less perplexing than those which have 
little or no connection with their habitat. Consider deeply 
the word "two" scratched heavily and carefully into the 
work-surface. Why should a boy spend useful time in 


placing so common-place a word in the way of posterity? 
Shall we or need we ever know? 

To my right there is a crude heart with a name in it 
— ^no, not the name of a girl, as one might expect, but 
rather the letters "MUC." Who or what is "MUC"? 

Aside from these curious items, the names of people 
long passed through the portals of learning, relieve the 
monotony of the varnish. These boys, now men, are of 
the time before my short remembrance. I do not know 
them. They strike no chord of memory within me, although 
they may in someone. These indentations, if gifted with 
reason, might foresee many futures for their creators — a 
butcher, a baker, a candlestick-maker. Their artists may 
now be dead but the mystery survives. 

Sometimes on a desk one finds a creation which must 
have taken its maker many hours and deprived him of 
much learning. For instance, there may be a hole meti- 
culously drilled through three-quarters of an inch of hard- 
wood. Evidently many people have found labour of that 
sort more enticing by far than Latin verbs. Some un- 
enthusiastic students might call such an act by the name 
of "occupational therapy" from the oppressive horror of 
knowledge. It could appear as such to some, no, many a 
more recalcitrant pupil. 

These cryptic messages from persons departed will 
live on — senseless, useless, but diverting — as long as there 
are schools and desks and writing and words to write; 
above all ,as long as there are students. It is a part of 
human nature to leave a memory behind on departing from 
any period of our short span of years.

O^r THE 



It was a full-fledged player 

Who stoppeth one in three 

With experience, weight, and craftiness, 

Few runners went by free. 

The hole in the line was opened wide, 
To let the runner through, 
He has the ball, the play is set, 
But he is knocked askew. 

He holds him with his strong, strong arms, 
"You must go down," quoth he, 
"Hold off! Unhand me, mucky coon! 
Ouch! Get thou off a me." 

And so he played through all the game; 
It was not only size. 
But spirit, will and just sheer drive, 
No style can compromise.

'*How to Lose Friends and Influence Contributors" 

A few days ago as we were walking down a corridor 
in one of the houses, we heard sounds of a scuffle. Investi- 
gation led us to a scene which few will believe possible. It 
was a very uneven affair, one poor helpless person against 
five or six ferocious cut-throats, obviously crazed by the 
sight of blood. As the victim was covered with hot tar in 
preparation for the feathers, we asked one of the more 
peaceful onlookers for an explanation. He gave a hideous 
grin and whispered, "It's the editors of "The Record" after 
a contribution!" 

Later, as the poor unfortunate was being carried away 
to the hospital, we decided to have a look at the would-be 
assassins and find out how it all started. 

The leader of the band was a tall, thin fellow with dark 
hair. We guessed he was the leader but we had no proof, 
as no one seemed to care what he said. A few weeks ago 
he had calmly announced to his followers "I think it's time 
for another 'Record'." Everybody agreed and immediately 
found other things to do. However, the previous night 
the editor-in-chief, as this fellow turned out to be, called 
a meeting of his henchmen and told them that the dead- 
line v/as on Saturday and that this time they would fol- 
low the usual method of attack. 

At once the staff springs to life. Intrigue fills the 
air. The editors of the various sections dash about pro- 
mising unheard-of rewards for contributions. Feuds are 
forgotten as enemy becomes friend for a day, only to be- 
come a worse enemy afterwards. When persuasion and 
bribery faU then it is time to start warming the tar. 

As the days waste away so do those who are respon- 
sible for "The Record". Troubles mount up. The business 
managers have found only two advertisers. The School 
news writers were asleep in Chapel and have not written 


accounts of any of the sermons. The photographers have 
taken no pictures. These latter go into hibernation in the 
dark, returning at last with a few pictures of blurred faces 
and distorted forms. 

The sports department usually manages to have at 
least one game written. However, the score is probably 
wrong. The features section spends so much time think- 
ing about what to feature that nothing ever is. The literary 
section is the marvel of the School. How one editor can 
drum up the number of contributions he does has yet to be 
explained. There is also that section entitled "Off the 
Record," about which the less said the better. 

To those who have persevered this far we hope that 
this article will help explain many of those questions at 
the back of your minds. Enlightening if not encouraging!

2048 A.D. 

Braanngg ! The seven o'clock alarm bell shrills 

through the corridors and automatically all windows of 
rooms and dormitories fly open to let in the stiff winter 
air. Then for the next fifteen minutes silence reigns. At 
seven-fifteen the bell clangs again and all those beds still 
occupied are at once vibrated by a concealed off-centre 
motor. At this time also the bed-clothes, which are made 
of plastex, are thrown by the owner into a small hole in 
the wall where they dissolve and new ones are forced out 
through a nearby slot. Then the race to breakfast is on. 

Trinity is one of the few institutions which still hold 
to the old tradition of compulsory meals instead of issuing 
the more convenient energy-tablets. Even though the year 
is 2048 some of the old decadent customs are still observed 
in the world. In the Dining-Conservatory large steel 
robots serve the food on long Incite tables. 

After the meal everyone files back to his quarters for 
the morning clean-up. Beds are made, floors are auto- 


matically swept, and finally before classes, the rooms are 
sealed and exposed to D.D.T. "bombs". 

Into the ultra-modern classroom building, which con- 
tains the new Nuclear Physics and Atomic Chemistry 
Labs., file the boys bent on a hard day's work. Along the 
main corridor can be seen various book-dispensing ma- 
chines. The classrooms, which are fitted with reclining 
chairs, seat about forty. The Audio-televisors and Thought- 
impression helmets are part of the plan of complete visual 
and mental education common to the modern era. 

After classes various sports are played by most mem- 
bers of the school. One, a popular nationwide game called 
"Battle" is played with two teams using flying-belts, and 
is said to be a remote form of the ancient game of Rugby. 
Another very popular sport is played with rocket-scooters, 
the objective being to guide a small steel ball into a net by 
means of a magnetic rod. These games are very prominent 
in the life of a T.C.S. boy. 

Still one more very old custom is observed at Trinity 
which is called "fagging". All "Youngers" may be told 
to do various jobs or run errands for the "Elders", such 
as flying over to the tuck-shop for food or depositing their 
shoes in the automatic polisher. In Winter the "Youngers" 
are obliged to do radiation drill and to service the atomic- 
ray weapons of the School's Interplanetary Cadet Corps. 

At ten in the evening, following an hour under the 
brain stimulators, the boys retire for the night. The final 
bell sounds at five minutes past ten and any bed not occu- 
pied automatically slides into the wall, forcing the owner 
to sleep on the floor, as punishment for being late. 

— William M. Carroll, Form VI Sch. 





"It isn't whether you win the game or whether you 
lose the game, but how you play the game." This is un- 
doubtedly the finest phrase ever written about the field 
of sports, and it is the phrase that we always try to follow 
on the playing fields. As you all know, the School is best 
known for its continual fight, good spirit, and clean play 
in all of its games. And we are sure that this tradition 
will be carried out to the utmost by every boy at the 

This year we are hoping to inaugurate a new^ style of 
sports reporting. In the past the write-ups have been 
lengthy and sometimes poorly written. This year we are 
endeavouring to cut down on the length of the reports as 
well as improve their quality. This will be done by writing, 
on an essay basis, what we hope will be a more human 
approach to the game. We are not going to soft-pedal a 
defeat, or overemphasize a victory. In all fairness to the 
players, and readers, I believe that this is the best way to 
operate. In one issue last year there were something like 
forty-eight pages of sports, which brought a wave of 
criticism from all quarters. This year we have decided to 
write summaries of the seasons of all teams except Big- 
side, thus getting a complete view of their feats and cutting 
down on the length of the reports. I hope that this ap- 
proach to our sports will be more pleasing to the readers, 
and that it will be more advantageous training for the 

As this issue goes to press the first football team has 
one game under its belt, an 11-6 defeat by U.T.S. Our team 



this year is one of the lightest in the School's history, and 
there are only seven old bigsiders left. However, Bernie 
Hodgetts, one of the best secondary school coaches in 
Canada, seems to be moulding a fast, intelligent team that, 
I am sure, will give the best account of itself. The most 
disappointing aspect of the game was the lack of cheering 
from the sidelines. It seemed that not more than half the 
School was out. It was disgraceful, and I hope that this 
will never happen again. As yet there has been no captain 
elected, which shows the closeness of the competition for 
positions on the team. Colours back from last year include 
"Bugs" Stratford, Doug Lawson, Don Fullerton and Mike 
Dignam. We all wish the team the best possible success. 
As last year, the weather has been, at times, ideal for 
tennis. Quite often you can see Messrs. Scott, Lewis, 
Humble, and Knight slashing the ball in true Forest Hill 
style. Occasionally a couple of courageous souls can be 
seen training for the distant Oxford Cup race. Other 
exercise being taken around the School, includes a daily 
jaunt to tuck, and the "talking-after-lights-out" boys trip 
around the campus as the sun rises. 



Lost 11-6 

Bigside opened their current season being trounced 
11-6 by U.T.S. The game was slowed down considerably 
by many fumbles, and constant off-sides, mostly by U.T.S. 


Twice the Toronto squad was off-side on four consecutive 
plays. Throughout, the play reminded one that both teams 
had had only a week's practice behind them. The School 
looked especially weak in downfield tackling, but one tack- 
ling practice and very fast U.T.S. backs accounted for this. 
Our boys seem to have the makings of a good team, with 
plenty of drive and spirit. 

The Toronto side scored first, within five minutes of 
the opening whistle, when Fawcett ran the end for a major 
which Ponton converted. After an exchange of kicks, the 
School rolled the length of the field to an unconverted tally 
on a pass from Miller to Greenwood. However, many off- 
sides aided our advance. The second quarter was badly 
played, the only score came when Wood kicked a long 
single, to tie the score at 6-6 as the half ended. 

The rest of the game was dull and slow, the only sus- 
tained action coming in the final ten minutes, when Fawcett 
raced ten yards for a touchdown after receiving a pass. It 
was not converted. After the kick-off Trinity marched 
up the field, but were stopped within the U.T.S. ten yard 
line. The game ended with the School still pressing, but 
two intercepted passes hampered our efforts. 

Fawcett, Doll, and Bongard were outstanding in the 
U.T.S. backfield. For the School, Scowen was a stand-out 
in the line; Lawson also was good. 

T.C.S. — F.W.: Fullerton; backs: Lawson, Wood, Dignam; quar- 
ter: Thompson i; snap: Stratford; insides: Austin, Scowen; mid- 
dles: Timmins i, McGill; ends: Greenwood, Maclaren. Subs: Bate, 
Miller, Moffitt, Deverall, Selby, Byers, Wilson, Stirling, Hughes i, 
Thompson iii, Huycke, Gilley, Cox, Baker. 

U.T.S. — F.W.: Doll; backs: Bongard, Avery, Fawcett; quarter: 
Ponton; snap: Gamble; insides: Noble, Henderson; middles: Lagan, 
Hopkins; ends: Ferguson, Short. Subs: Angus, Trelford, Fleck, 
Bailey, Vernon, Mcllroy, Millard, Moran, Doupe, Bradin, Richmond, 
Wilkinson, Mollenhauer, Eastmure, Chandler, Bailey. 




In the past few years the policy of a two team Middle- 
side has been followed. One squad was entered in the 
C.O.S.S.A. football league, while the other played exhibition 
games with our usual school rivals. However, this system 
weakened the teams, especially the latter. This year one 
strong team is being prepared by Mr. Armstrong and Mr. 
Key. It looks like a good season for Middleside, and we 
all hope it will be. 

Won 26-32 

The third team opened their season in good style, de- 
feating Oshawa High School 26-33. The game, their first 
in the C.O.S.S.A. league, was a tense action-packed thriller 
throughout. Much good football was shown by both sides. 
Oshawa proved fine pass receivers, while the School im- 
veiled a hard charging line along with a fast competent 
backfield. It was very reassuring to see so many future 
Bigsiders in action. 

On the opening kick-off Smith recovered the ball for 
Trinity. Then, a few plays later, he fell on an Oshawa 
fumble behind their line for a major. From then on it was 
a nip and tuck battle for the lead, the School being ahead 
16-11 at the half. In the last minutes a desperate Oshawa 
aerial attack was stymied by alert T.C.S. backs. Ashton 
scored four touchdowns for the School, as he and McDer- 


ment bucked the visitors ragged. Mozewski was best for 
Oshawa, with two touches, one of them coming on a beauti- 
ful kick-off run. 

T.C.S. — Maier, Ashton, Lick, Pierce, Thomson iv, Bruce, Bird, 
Harris i, Lewis, Luxton, Drynan, Rawlinson, Cleland, . Wilson ii. 
Smith ii, Gilmour, Pepler, Tench, Southam, McDerment, Gordon, 
Burdock, Brodeur. 



The Littleside team looks to be the heaviest that we 
have seen in several years. Under able hand of Mr. Hass, 
we feel sure that the Fifth's will have an excellent season. 
Again there is a Littleside B team, consisting of those boys 
who are too small to play on any other side. 


Although the quality of soccer has deteriorated badly 
since the mass of Bermudians left, it still has a large en- 
thusiastic following. The games and practices are always 
played hard, which gives all involved vigorous exercise. Mr. 
Bagley is coaching Bigside, while Mr. Dening is in charge 
of the other squad. The team looks fairly strong and we 
wish them a good season. 



The annual New Boys' Race was held this year under 
the usual conditions: Cold and Wet. After a postpone- 
ment of half an hour, due to rain, the race was started 
in a heavy downpour. Mr. Batt, after an encouraging talk, 
fired the gun while the School watched from the Tuck 
Shop. The condition of the track could easily be seen from 
the clothes of the runners. The course was very muddy 
but in spite of the various obstacles, the race was run in 
very good time with a very close and exciting finish. The 
time was nine and a half minutes (courtesy of Mr. Dening). 
Brent House won by the comfortable margin of twenty- 
four points. 

The leaders: 

1. Cooke over age. 

2. Wright 10 points. 

3. Clarke 7 points. 

4. Walrath over age. 

5. Rogers ii 5 points. 

6. Molson 3 points. 

7. Levey over age. 

8. Newcomb 1 point. 

All those over fourteen years of age were ineligible to 
gain points for the Magee Cup for New Boys' cross coim- 
try, boxing, and gym. Cooke ran a very fine race coming 
up fast and passing Wright in the last few hundred yards 
behind the J.S. The first three boys were no more than 
a few yards apart at the finish. 


Last summer a group of Bermudian Old Boys or- 
ganized a team under the captaincy of Neville Conyers to 
play a series of cricket matches in the first ten days of July. 
Also included were four Canadian boys from the School, 
who were the guests of the Bermudians. From all reports 


everyone including Mr. Lewis had a wonderful time, and 
all concerned must be thanked for their kindness and hos- 
pitality towards the team. 

The team consisted of Neville Conyers ('43-'47) ; Bill 
Brewer ('43-'47) ; Harry Cox ('42-'45) ; Alan Barnes ('44- 
'47); Johnny Ingham ('42-'44) ; Bill Conyers ('43-'48) ; 
Mike Cox (46) ; Reed Cooper ('46) ; Dave Walker ('41-'44) ; 
and from Canada, Rick Gaunt ('44-'48) ; Tony Wells ('44- 
'47) ; Nigel Thompson and Dick Maier. 

A total of six games were played, three were won, two 
lost and one tied. This is an excellent record for a team 
that had not played together before, and their matches 
were mostly against "A" class players. Throughout the 
tour the team displayed excellent batting power, failing to 
gain one hundred runs in only one game. On the statis- 
tical side two centuries were scored, and there were nine 
scores of forty or better. Bill Brewer hit 283 runs in six 
innings, one not out, and took 17 wickets. Harry Cox 
knocked up 174 runs in five innings, once not out. 

In their first game, the team, led by Cox and Brewer 
with fifty and forty respectively, tied an eleven chosen by 
J. Barritt 212 to 162 for six. The squad gained their 
initial victory when they trounced Somerset Workman's 
Club 252 for six declared to 105. Cox, whose 120, retired, 
including sixteen fours and two sixes, batted superbly. 
Neville Conyers claimed four wickets for thirty-one runs. 
The School team scored their second victory by the narrow 
margin of 146-140 in a match played against a Bermuda 
Athletic Association side. Brewer had sixty runs and took 
five for forty. Reid Cooper and Dick Maier made a good 
stand at the end of our innings, scoring eighteen and 
twenty-six (not out) respectively. 

The team lost their next two games to the Southamp- 
ton Sports Club 190-174, and to a picked Bermuda Cricket 
Association eleven 177-89. In the first game Johnny Ingham 
scored seventy runs and Barnes thirty. In the latter en- 
counter Tony Wells was our high scorer with eighteen runs, 



and Brewer took five for fifty-two. In their final match of 
the tour the squad smashed a team of Old Boys of the Little 
Big Four Schools, 253 for 1 to 241. The opponents batted 
first piling up their runs slowly; Rick Gaunt took four 
wickets for thirty-four runs. Then Bill Brewer and Tony 
Wells put up a magnificent stand of 198 runs, before Wells 
was out for seventy-four. Then Johnny Ingham and Bill 
took the score to 253 before stumps were drawn. Brewer 
had sixteen fours and two sixes in his brilliant 146 not out. 

In addition to his fine performance with the T.C.S. 
cricket team in Bermuda last summer, Neville Conyers, 
playing for the Pembroke Athletics and Queen's Club, 
took five wickets for two runs to aid in dismissing the 
whole side for four runs. 

I have been informed that the social life had by all 
was quite something, and we must give added thanks to 
the kind hosts and hostesses.

We welcome the New Boys of 1948 to the Junior 
School and wish them every success and happiness in their 
stay at T.C.S. 

Our thoughts and best wishes go with our Old Boys 
who are starting out in the Senior School. May they keep 
up the good work and continue to contribute in every way 
to the life of the School ! 

Congratulations to Nigel Thompson on his appoint- 
ment as Head Prefect and best wishes to him and all the 
Prefects for a very successful year. 

The only event of importance to be recorded up to 
date is the School Picnic. This took place at Sylvan Glen 
and seemed to come up to everybody's expectations. Our 
thanks to Mrs. Crowe and her staff for feeding us so well 
and so adequately. 


To-day was the big day I was to go riding with my 
brother. There was not much choice as to which horse 
to ride. Not giving it much thought, I took a short, fat 
pony, whereas my brother took a sleek, swift horse. We 
saddled our mounts, or rather my brother saddled his, as 
there was no saddle that would fit mine. Never having 
ridden before, I was to try to learn from my brother. 

Off we started at a slow walk, only to speed into a 
trot, resulting in my falling off. I rose and was told to 
get on again. We rounded a comer; at this stage I was so 
far behind that I decided to cut across. Needless to say, 
this attempt was unsuccessful. While crossing, I went 
imder a tree, but forgot to bend low, and again found my- 
self sprawling on the ground. My brother circled back and 
I remounted much against my wishes. This was not all; 
just ahead was a stream, which my brother insisted we 
ford. Trembling with fear, I started across after my 


brother. About midstream, my horse started to drink. 
That was fine with me, except that when I wished to move 
on, my pony didn't. Naturally I used all my most persua- 
sive tones to no avail. Getting tired of sitting in midstream, 
I gave him a hefty kick. Alas, this got results, but much 
too quickly for me. My brother looked back disgustedly 
and saw my pony calmly eating, and me, poor me, giving 
vent to my feelings in the river.

A golden glimmer gives celestial light. 

And 'neath this brilliance breathes His glorious town. 

How boldly doth it stand! And lo, in might 

Its potent King boasteth His lordly crown. 

But hold! All life is not a-crowned in leaves 

Of myrtle green. Death reigns in darkness dense; 

And there, in dungeon black, the wicked grieves 

That Satan's wither'd cypress gate led thence. 

But hark! The day will come when trumpets sound, 

And clarion calls will purge sin's wicked ways. 

Yea, cleansing rain will wash hell to the ground; 

But o'er Him make a rainbow to His praise. 

Lo, black will be hell's smould'ring ashy pains; 

But gold, that arc that shows He ever reigns. 

— R. J. Anderson, Form in 


Being a New Boy really isn't so bad. You hear a lot 
of weird stories about going to boarding school. You are 
told that you won't like it and that people at boarding 
schools are very very strict. 

But somehow you are persuaded to go. Then you say 
to yourself, "I guess I'll take a chance", so you're off. 

The first few days you follow the crowd to find out 


what's what around the School. Then you get a feeling 
that you're all in this thing together. We really are all in 
this together, together at T.C.S. 

— Bill Boughner, Form IB 


I'd like to be a caterpillar 
And eat on big green leaves. 
I'd like to be a caterpillar 
And live in all the trees. 

I'd like to be a caterpillar 

And climb to the top of the trees. 

I'd like to be a caterpillar 

And slide down all the leaves. 

I'd like to be a caterpillar 
All fuzzy, snug and warm. 
I'd like to be a caterpillar 
And stay in ears of corn. 

It would be fun to be a caterpillar 
To play and eat and fight. 
Then when the sun went down, 
I'd curl up for the night. 

— John Seagram, Form HB 


All those high hopes of success 
Now are finished by that little slip. 
He should have waited; 
But now all chance is gone, 

From sheer happiness he is plunged into the depth of 
dismay and frustration. 


All that he had dreamed of, gone; 
Replaced by disfiguration. In his eyes 
What might have been a crowning success 
Is changed to overwhelming failure, 
Which in itself is a bitter punishment. 

He meditates, could he mend this mishap? 
Could he conceal his mistake? 
Well, perhaps so. 

With a little touching up of course. 
Yes, the way lies open, his features lighten in a smile 
of apprehension. 

— R. Jackson, Form m 


Once you were a king; monarch of all you surveyed, 

But now your reign is over. 

You lie, stripped of your regal dignity 

In shame upon the ground. 

How cruel the axe that ended in a minute 

A hundred years and more of life and majesty. 

You withstood long winters when men shivered by their 

But you were helpless when the trial came. 
What could you do? 

It does not matter now if you are chosen 
To become a part of a king's palace 
Or a cow shed. 

Your life is gone. Never again will you look over 
Miles of countryside, 
And feel you are immortal.

Captain of Rugby F. L. R. Jackman 


Only two Old Colours survived the annual exodus of 
the last year's team to the Senior School. At the time of 
writing it can be said that everybody is working hard and 
the spirit of the team is good. We are much lighter than 
last year but wUl hope to offset this by good tackling and 
fast ball handling. Win or lose, the team should be able 
to give a good account of themselves. The usual schedule 
of games has been arranged with Lakefield, Ridley, U.C.C. 
and S.A.C. 


The Soccer team shows definite promise this year as 
several of last year's squad are still available to the team. 
They should have a successful season. Games have been 
arranged with U.C.C. and Lakefield.

T.C.S. people were very sorry to hear that Peter 
Campbell was seriously ill. He was taken to hospital early 
in October where he underwent an operation; at the time 
of writmg he is holding his own very satisfactorily. 

In his School and College days Peter was one of the 
School's greatest athletes. He captained the football team 
of 1907 and again in 1908 when his team won the Cham- 
pionship. It was largely Peter's coaching, enthusiasm, 
and drive which led the team to a series of victories. He 
was also Captain of the hockey teams of 1908 and 1909 
and played on the Championship Cricket teams of 1908 and 

Peter Campbell was chosen as Captain and quarter of 
the "All Star" Little Big Four team of 1908. Six other 
T.C.S. players were on this team: Jack Maynard, Styx 
Macaulay, George Edmiston, Pudge Drummond, Pack 
Harris, and George Ross. 

Entering the University of Toronto, Peter soon became 
a star on the Varsity team, playing quarter back and cap- 
taining the team. Those who saw intercollegiate games in 
those days will never forget the running plays of Peter 
Campbell and Jack Maynard. In one year, three of the 
four captains of Intercollegiate teams were T.C.S. Old 
Boys — Peter Campbell, U. of T., George Laing, McGill, 
Styx Macaulay, R.M.C. 

We hope Peter Campbell will some day write his 
reminiscences of games at T.C.S. and Varsity. 

We wish him a quick and complete recovery.

west coast is probably the most interesting job he has evei' 
had. He sees a good deal of Peter Cayley ('37-'40) and 
John Annesley ('25-'34), John Wallace ('36-'39) and Jun 
Thomson ('37-'39). Bim also writes of the great value of 
the Record as a close link with the School. 


For the wedding in Toronto, October 2, of Peter 
George Armour ('38-'41) and Miss Cynthia Joy Henderson, 
David Armour ('38-'40) was groomsman for his brother, 
and John Armour ('43-'47) acted as an usher. 


Arthur Millward ('39-'44) has finished his university 
career at Toronto with high academic honours, as we all 
know. His extra-curricular activity is also outstanding: 
During his four years at Trinity he took an active interest 
in the Classics Club, and was President of the Club in his 


final year. He belonged to the U. of T. Historical Club, 
was Curator of the "Lit", and was a leading member of 
the Hart House Library Committee. Perhaps he will be 
long remembered as, among other things, the one who 
gave '48 its year yell, written in such complicated Latin 
that only he was able to translate it! Arthur has now 
arrived in Cambridge, Mass., to continue his studies at 
Harvard, where he has won a Scholarship. He finds the 
atmosphere of Boston delightfully English and is looking 
forward with great interest to this postgraduate year. 

After graduating from the University of Toronto with 
the degree of Bachelor of Architecture, Bill Greer ('37-'43) 
spent the summer touring France, England, Holland and 
Belgium. He found the trip intensely interesting, par- 
ticularly in the Art and Architectural fields. Bill has been 
awarded an Industrial Design Scholarship to do post- 
graduate work at the Institute of Design in Chicago. This 
Scholarship was awarded by the National Art Gallery of 
Canada and the National Research Council. In his final 
year at the University of Toronto he was particularly noted 
for his excellent work as Scribe of "Episkopon". 


We were delighted to have a visit early in September 
from Kingsley M. Holcroft ('99-'04). It was "Holy's" 
first visit since he left forty-four years ago and he was 
glad to see the new buildings. In turn, his tales of life at 
T.C.S. at the turn of the century, in the days when R. P. 
Jellett undertook to revamp the football team which was 
badly in need of coaching, was full of interest for us. Prior 
to 1924 Holcroft spent some years ranching in Alberta, and 
since then has been in the contracting business in the 
United States. He suggests that Old Boys of the earlier 
years should exchange correspondence and thus renew 
contacts with each other. His address is 120 Milton St., 
Williamsvnie 21, N.Y. 


Peter Lawson ('38-'43) is in his final year at McGill 
studying for his B. Com. degree. He spent the summer' 
with the Navy as an Active Reservist and divided his time 
between sea expeditions and instruction in Halifax. Jim 
Lawson ('40-'48) is continuing his studies at the West- 
mount High School. 


Stuart Morgan ('44-'48) has v/ritten of his enjoyable 
summer. For seven weeks he attended the French School 
at Trois Pistoles and found the experience a most valuable 
one. At the conclusion of the course he flew to Bermuda 
to spend three weeks visiting Frank Cooper ('43-'48). 
Stuart has begun his university career at Dawson College 

this autumn. 


It was a pleasure to hear recently from Fred J. Tighe 
('91-'97). For many years Fred has been a professional 
organist and teacher of music in Carleton Place, Ontario. 
He is looking forward to attending a meeting of the Old 
Boys' Association and hopes that he will meet Old Boys of 
the years '91-'97 especially. 


Dick Carson ('43-'48) was one of the twenty-five 
Cadets chosen from Canada to tour the British Isles this 
summer and he had a never-to-be-forgotten experience as 
a member of that group. The well-planned programmes 
and variety of tours arranged were far beyond the oppor- 
tunity of the average tourist and covered England from 
Thomey Island in the extreme south, to part of Scotland. 
Dick says history and tradition have left their mark every- 
where. Every day was crammed with new and exciting 
events and historic places to visit, and though the pace 
was pretty exhausting, it was an experience long to be 
remembered with the utmost pleasure. Dick is now en- 
rolled at U.B.C. in Arts and has made the squad of the 
university football team, the "Thunderbirds". 


Andrew Fleming ('30-'38) is beginning his Senior year 
of Forestry Engineering at the University of New Bruns- 
wick. Andrew says it is ten years since he left the School 
on the Hill and he is still a student! (The war having 
swallowed up much of that time.) In the Maritimes he 
sees Old Boys all too seldom and was pleasantly surprised 
to discover, when working in the bush this summer, that 
the Dominion Forester was none other than Dick Ray 

Stephen Baker arrived one night in September having 
motor hiked all the way from Winnipeg. He was off next 
morning for Queen's but it was good to have a glimpse of 

him again. 


It was a great pleasure to hear from R. V. Porritt 
('14-'17). Dick has never seen the new buildings at the 
School and is hoping to make a visit fairly soon. He has 
spent many years in Noranda and has a son and two 



J. A. Beament ('37-'44) completed a very successful 
career at the University of Toronto and has now entered 
the Permanent Army. In addition to his academic suc- 
cess, the list of his non-academic pursuits is a most 
impressive one and his athletic record has seldom been 
equalled in the annals of the Red and Black. He was a 
member of the rugby team each of his three years, wind- 
ing up as Captain of the team, which were finalists for 
the Intramural Championship. He was also a member of 
the swimming team for three years, the team which were 
Intramural Champions two years ago; for two years he 
was on the waterpolo team, one year on the volleyball 
squad, and outstanding in each. He coached two Trinity 
hockey teams; was on the U. of T. tennis club executive, 
and Manager of Athletics at Trinity. For this outstand- 
ing record, he received the Cluff Memorial Trophy from

the T.C.A.A., awarded annually to the student in Trinity 
who excels in sportsmanship, leadership and ability. 

The following Old Boys are prominent in the athletic 
life at McGill University: John Dobson ('43-'45) has the 
responsible job of Chairman of the 1949 Winter Carnival 
and has already'' put in considerable work towards its suc- 
cess. Art Mathewson ('42-'44) is football manager for the 
'48 season; Art has ambitious ideas for a public relations 
bureau at the University, a field he hopes to enter upon 
his graduation. Chris Bovey ('41-'44) is Acting Chairman 
of the Students' Athletic Council which keeps him pretty 
busy. Art and Chris are also devoting their time to T.C.S. 
affairs in that Cosmopolitan centre. 


Peter Alley ('44-'48) is finding his first days at the 
U. of T. both interesting and enjoyable and looks forward 
to a very happy year. He says there is quite an impres- 
sive colony of T.C.S. boys at Trinity this year and many 
of them are hoping to visit the School very soon.

We are grateful to Ian Tate ('34-'41) for giving us the 
following news of various Old Boys at the University of 
Toronto in 1947-1948: 

Several Varsity "T's" went to Old Boys, most already 
well known, such as Ed Huycke ('41-'45) and Archie Jones 
('35-'41), stars of the Blues rugby squad; Tommy Lawson 
('43-'47) and Hubie Sinclair ('42-'46) of the Intermediates. 
Tommy was also First Year Rep. to the T.C.A.A. Execu- 
tive last year. 

Neville Conyers ('43-'47) was a member of the Senior 
Intercollegiate Soccer Championship team, while Bill Cox 
('43-'47) won his "T" in the Intermediate team. 

Peter Heaton ('38-'42) was a member of the Inter- 
collegiate English Rugby Championship team. 


Jack Goering ('41-'43), who graduated with honours 
from SPS, was on the Senior Intercollegiate Track Cham- 
pionship team for his third year, to walk away with the 
javelin throw with a toss of over 165 feet. 

Gord Gibson ('42-'46), after last year walking off with 
the Junior Gym. Championship, U. of T., was on the U. 
of T. team, Intercollegiate Champs. 

The T.C.A.A. Executive seemed almost to be a T.C.S. 
athletic one, in that there were no fewer than five out 
of eleven student members: Dave Higginbotham ('39-'44), 
also U. of T. Squash team. Tommy Lawson, First Year 
Rep., Peter Dobell ('42-'45), Secretary, Bosco Beament, 
Manager of Athletics, and Ian Tate ('34-'41). 

The Soccer Finalist team was also a predominantly 
T.C.S. team — Geoff Pearson, Vince Dawson ('42-'45), 
Jack Goering, Tony Wells ('44-'47), Bill Cox and Pete 
Dobell all being on this team. 

Jim Paterson ('41-'43) was a delegate at the National 
Liberal Convention in July and won much notice by a short 
speech he made criticising the lack of specific details in a 
number of the resolutions. 

H. D. Butterfield, a Governor, has been appointed to 
the Executive Council of Bermuda. 

George Laing ('07-'10) was runner-up in the Seniors 
Golf Tournament held in Ottawa in August. Several other 
Old Boys took part, including G. B. Strathy ('95-'97) and 
Norman Seagram ('90-'93). 

* * * * * 

Peter Elliston ('21-'24) gives us some details of his 
war service. Up to Dunkirk he was with the R.A.S.C. 
Second Corps Troops. Then he was posted to Egypt with 
the 8th Army campaigning from Alamein to Tunis. He was 
in Italy until the end of the war. 


Gordon Tracy ('40-'41) has won a valuable Scholar- 
ship offered by the French Government for postgraduate 
study in France. Our congratulations to him. 


Michael Wright ('43-'48) took his Flying Scholarship 
training this summer at Kingston and did very well. He 

won his private pilot's license and came second in his class. 


A. M. Bethune ('84-'92) and his sister were interested 
in the article on Dramatics in the June "Record". They 
recall plays being given in 1882. 


John Bethune ('29-'31) has been directing the Open 
Air theatre in Stanley Park, Vancouver. He takes part in 
plays at the Vancouver play house and has written several 

radio plays. 


We have heard from many sources of the brilliant 
speeches both Jim and Robert Paterson made at Jim's 
wedding. Many Old Boys were present and a delightful 
time was had by all. Jim and his bride are now in residence 

at Oxford. 


We were extremely sorry to learn that the name of 
Hugh Labatt ('98-'01) was left off the list of boys who 
served in the First World War in the recently published 
book "T.C.S. Old Boys at War"; there was no mention of 
his service in any of the old records at the School. Hugh 
Labatt enlisted in the Canadian Field Artillery and was 
promoted to the rank of Sergeant. He was offered a com- 
mission but refused it. Later he was transferred to Force 
Headquarters and was sent to Russia with a detachment 
which was commissioned to investigate the death of the 
Russian Imperial family. He served for some time at Omsk 
and later became associated with the Czechoslovak forces. 


Christopher Willis (1901) wrote from Shanghai in 
July, sending his subscription to the Old Boys' Bursary 
Fund. After three years incarceration in a Japanese con- 
centration camp, Christopher is back running the Christian 
Book Room. His youngest son, Christopher, has just 
graduated in Medicine at McGill. Recalling a bursary he 
enjoyed at T.C.S., Christopher says it is a pleasure for him 
to assist another lad as best he can. 

Bill Brewer ('43-'47) played a sensational game for 
the Varsity Seconds against Western early in October; it 
was largely due to Brewer's kicking, running and all-round 
work that Varsity were able to defeat their strong rivals. 
On the same team were playing Hubie Sinclair ('42-'46), 
Tommy Lawson ('43-'47) and Harry Hyde ('41-'47). 


On the Varsity team this year are Archie Jones ('35- 
'41) at centre, and Eddie Huycke ('41-'45) at half back. 
Both have been playing extremely well and were mentioned 
several times in the broadcast of the first Intercollegiate 
game against Western. 

* « * * • 

Ric Gaunt ('44-'48), Ian Rogers ('44-'48), Peter Alley 
('44-'48) and Michael Hall ('44-'48) are playing football 
for Trinity College. Bill Cox ('43-'47) is turning out with 
the U. of T. English Rugger Team. Neville Conyers ('43- 
'47) and Jim Barber ('43-'46) are on the Varsity Soccer 
team and Neville scored one of the two goals which de- 
feated Western in the first Intercollegiate match. Tony 
Wells ('44-'47) is Manager of the Trinity Soccer Team and 
several T.C.S. boys are playing on it. 

Geoff Pearson ('42-'45) is Speaker of the Trinity 
"Lit", Peter Dobell ('42-'45), Deputy Speaker, Roger Kirk- 
patrick ('41-'46) Secretary, and Dudley Burland ('42-'44), 
Treasurer. Gordon Gibson ('42-'46), Pat Vernon ('42-'45) 


and John Barton ('43-'47) also hold positions in the "Lit". 

Gordon Gibson is resident head of his year at Trinity, 
and Pat Vernon is the non-resident head of his year. Dick 
Butterfield ('42-'47) is Stage Manager of the Dramatic 
Society. Peter Dobell is Vice President of the Athletic 
Association and Eddie Huycke is a member of the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Athletic Association. Pat Vernon 
is President of the U. of T. Modem History Club and

An article appeared in the September issue of Mac- 
lean's Magazine about George Ross ('06-'09) and his ranch 
in Southern Alberta. George Jr. ('36-'37) was also men- 
tioned. For twenty years or more, George Ross has been 
known in the West as the flying ranchman, and he takes 
a leading part in the affairs of the ranchmen's associa- 
tions. We wish he would fly to Port Hope occasionally.

E. H. C. (Ted) Leather ('31-'37), Conservative candi- 
date for North Somerset riding, England, in the next 
general election, won an ovation at the October Conserva- 
tive Party Conference by calling for greater and more 
demonstrative pride in the heritage of England and the 



The Reverend John F. Davidson ('14-'17) has been 
named curate at St. John's Episcopal Church, Troy, N.Y. 
He will be in charge of St. John's Chapel at Latham, N.Y., 
and of work with students at R.P.I. 


We have just had word from "Foom" Fulford ('44-'48) 
who is spending a year at the University of Geneva prior 
to completing his education at the University of Toronto. 
He has just finished a pleasant trip through England and 
France on his way to Switzerland. Spending some time in 
London and Paris, he also visited such points of interest 
as Oxford. We wish him the best of luck and a successful 
year at Geneva. 


A number of generous contributions have been made 
to the O.B.A. Bursary Fund since the list as of July 1st 
was published in the August Record. 

On October 9th the fund reached a total of $3,032.05. 
The donations are grouped according to the graduation 


years and those sent in since the end of June are in- 
dividually acknowledged in each case. 

In the ten year groups (before 1930) the classes of 
'00-'09 still lead with a fine subscription of $536.25. In 
the one year groups the class of 1935 has gone ahead 
with a total subscription of $335.00. 

This is a most generous response to the appeal and 
the boys who benefit from these bursaries together with 
their parents and the School as a whole will ever be grate- 
ful to the many thoughtful Old Boys who have helped so

stead Gouinlock ('96-'99). 


His scores of friends were deeply shocked and sad- 
dened to learn of the sudden death last summer of G. M. 
Gossage. Murray Gossage was at T.C.S. from 1913 until 
1917. In his final year he was a member of our Fifth 
Form and was a strong player on the first football team 
and the first hockey team. The boys who were at T.C.S. 
with him will never forget his good fellowship and his in- 
dependent outlook on life. 

He served in the First World War in the Royal Fly- 
ing Corps, later the Royal Air Force, and after he was 
demobilized he joined the Aluminum Company of Canada. 
Lately, he had been holding a responsible post in Windsor. 

In the Second World War, despite his age, he received 
a commission in the Royal Regiment of Canada in June 
1940. During 1941 and 1942 he served with his Regiment 
in England, but was then repatriated on sick leave, and 
demobilized in September 1942 while holding the rank of 

He married Jean Henwood, of Edmonton, who sur- 
vives him. The School sends its deep sympathy to his 
widow and other members of the family.

The interest which the School took in the American 
presidential election was really surprising. Though some 
were not quite clear as to which candidate was Democratic 
or Republican and other such details, almost all showed 
some interest, and in most cases, partisanship. It is true 
that there are a certain number of American boys in the 
School, but it was the interest among Canadian boys that 
was most startling, particularly so, when contrasted with 
the apathy to events in the Canadian political scene such as 
the nominating conventions of both of Canada's major 
parties, and even the last provincial election in Ontario. 


It is true, as some may point out, that the American 
election will affect us more in the long run than the elec- 
tion of the Premier of Ontario. But to use that as a 
defence for ignorance of the political situation in one's own 
country is to miss the whole point of Democracy. It is to 
regard elections in the light of a horse-race operated by 
that nebulous and uncertain conception, the people, and in 
which the individual is no more than an interested on- 
looker; and thus it is that the more dynamic and momen- 
tous race brings in the greatest number of spectators. 
Nothing could be more mistaken — or more fatal — than this 
point of view. For, while the events in American politics 
may affect us more, we cannot control them, but we can 
control what happens in our own country; not only can we 
control it, but we must do so. 

And more even than we, the people, we the boys of 
this School, must be alive to the events in the nation. Pos- 
sessing the advantages of education, upbringing and finan- 
cial security that we do, we must prepare ourselves some 
day to be the leaders of political thought, perhaps even to 
enter actively into political life — we, at whose feet are 
placed opportunities unlimited to know our country, her 
needs, her ambitions, and the great future that is within 
her grasp, and finally to serve her wisely, with experience 
and knowledge. 



1903 - 1909 

This School has always been most fortunte in the 
loyalty of its Old Boys; without that loyalty and deep 
interest and generosity. T.C.S. could never have survived 
its many crises and made such progress. 

The sudden death of Peter Campbell on November 7th 
cast a gloom over hundreds of hearts. Peter was not only 


a truly loyal Old Boy, he was one of those exceptionally 
rare people who keep the spirit of youth coursing through 
their veins and who remain as keenly attached to a school 
they only see occasionally as they were when they were 
very important people within its v/alls. It was as if Peter 
could at any moment turn a page of his mind and be living 
again those golden years when he and Jack Maynard and 
George Laing and Styx Macaulay and Pudge Drummond 
and many other schoolmates were running with the ball on 
the T.C.S. fields, passing the puck on the T.C.S. ice, fielding 
the ball on the T.C.S. cricket pitch, panting the Oxford 
Cup, winning races on Sports Day, figuring out the best 
teams for the School and for their flat, arguing over new 
plays, hurling defiance at rivals, and all the time basking 
in the tacit approval of the Masters during class hours and 
delighting in the intense admiration of everyone, even the 
"dear old Oz", when an inter-school game was being played. 

Peter maintained the spirit of the game throughout his 
life: just as he would never accept defeat until the final 
whistle, and then determined to win next time, so no 
problem could get him down in Military or Civil life; just 
as he knew the value of combination plays in games, so he 
maintained his friendships and partnerships, and insisted 
on team play in all his activities ; just as he realized he had 
to be training for a game, so he took himself in hand and 
led a strictly disciplined life in all his later years. Just as 
loyalty to his School and his teams came as naturally to 
him as breathing, so he never forgot a friend or let him 
down; so he always supported unquestioningly his univer- 
sity, his fraternity, his regiment, his business associates, 
the institutions in which he was interested. 

.Peter Campbell was one of the two or three most dis- 
tinguished athletes ever to attend the School. He played 
on the first football team, at quarter, for three years and 
captained it for two years, in 1907 and 1908. In those 
days the Captain did practically all the coaching and was 
entirely responsible for the conduct of the team during a 
game. Peter coached and personally led his team of 1908 


to the first football Championship to be won by T.C.S. It 
was in those years that the running and passing plays of 
Pete Campbell and Jack Maynard began to win fame: 
Later when they played on the U. of T. team for several 
years, and both captained it, the Campbell-Maynard end 
runs, trick plays, kicking, and field generalship became 
famous from one end of Canada to the other. 

At T.C.S. Peter was the spark plug as well as the 
natural athlete: on and off the field his mind was always 
turning over at high speed and he was sizing up the situa- 
tion. In games it took him only a split second to see an 
opening and take advantage of it — "Against Ridley, Camp- 
bell took the kick-off when we were five points down, made 
a beautiful run down the touch line and crossed over for 
a touch. — Against U.C.C, a good run by Campbell who 
passed to Taylor — ^Campbell went for another gain around 
righf end — Campbell got away for a beautiful zig-zag run, 
crossing over for a touch — Campbell avoided tackle after 
tackle and after a run of over fifty yards got over the 
line." And in the summary of the season, "As usual. 
Campbell captained his team perfectly: As a quarter he 
was master of the game." 

And so it was in hockey: he captained the teams of 
1908 and 1909 and was a wonderful stick handler and 
skater. "His combination play with Maynard was at times 
quite remarkable." 

For three years he played on the Cricket Team and 
though he was a quick and accurate fielder and gave 
enthusiasm to the team, he never became much of a bat — 
baseball was even then in his blood. 

He won many races on Sports Day and ran in the 
Oxford Cup race, directing his lower flat team to a clear 
cut victory. 

Going on to R.M.C. and then Varsity, Peter continued 
his brilliant athletic career; he and Jack Maynard were 
the stars of a Champion U. of T. football team and often 
it seemed uncanny the way they sensed each other's inten- 
tion and combined perfectly in some beautiful passing or 
trick play at high speed. 


Then war broke out and Peter was one of the first to 
enlist. He joined the 48th Highlanders, was wounded and 
awarded the Military Cross for gallantry. Promoted to 
the rank of Captain, he served on the staff until he was 

After the war he joined the firm of R. C. Matthews 
and Co. and later formed a brokerage firm with another 
Old Boy, Campbell, Stratton & Co. When the Globe and 
Mail was founded he became a member of the advertising 

Since 1941 Peter Campbell had been President of the 
Toronto Baseball Club. In 1927 he had helped to form 
the Maple Leaf Hockey Club and had been one of the key 
figures in the building of the Maple Leaf Gardens. 

Despite his busy life Peter Campbell took the most 
enthusiastic interest in his old School and nothing was too 
much trouble if he felt there was a job he could do for 
T.C.S. Whenever he met anyone from Port Hope he was 
full of questions about the School teams and reminiscences 
of his own days. Then he would speak of the covered 
rink he hoped to see built, or the Chapel, or other improve- 
ments. Always he was sympathetic, always keen, always 
radiating confidence. He had been President of the 
Toronto branch of the O.B.A., and in 1941 he was elected 
to the Governing Body. At meetings he took a spirited 
part in discussions and showed impatience with stand-pat 
suggestions; Peter always wanted to be up and doing. In 
the campaign for the Memorial Fund he did yeoman's work 
and won many large subscriptions by his genuine interest 
and enthusiasm. 

A short time before his death he telephoned the Head- 
master to make further suggestions and enquiries about 
a covered rink: he said he was sure the rink would be 
built before long, and, he added, "it will be known as 'The 
Peter Campbell Memorial Rink'." 

Peter Campbell and Sportsmanship are almost syn- 
onymous terms: so his spirit will live on in the hearts and 
minds of all who knew him. We like to think of him and 


Jack Maynard running together once again in the carefree 
sun of youth. 

The School sends its deep sjTnpathy in his loss to his 
brother, Alan. ('02-'07), himself a great athlete at T.C.S., 
and the other members of his family. 


Bom 1892, Died 1948 

The following leading editorial appeared in the 
Toronto Globe and Mail on November 9th: it was written 
by the publisher. C. George McCullagh, LL.D. 

A Lovable Citizen 

In the passing of Mr. Peter G. Campbell, this com- 
munity, and, indeed, the whole of Canada, has lost an out- 
standing personality. "Cappie," as he was affectionately 
knowTi on this newspaper, which he served so loyally, died 
of a heart ailment from which he had suffered for nearly 
two months. Peter was manager of the financial adver- 
tising department of The Globe and Mail, but he did not 
confine his interest to any one department. By his en- 
thusiasm and devotion, he associated himself with the 
whole paper. No institution could have had a more faith- 
ful employee, and no employer ever had a more lovable 
friend. It is in that sense that we speak of him today. 

Peter was a man of rare and varied qualities, the most 
enviable of which was his steadfastness as a friend. Critics 
may have said that he carried loyalty too far, but in this 
day and age, when compromise is the vogue, and friends 
who will stand by through thick and thin are none too 
plentiful, the loss of a friend of Peter Campbell's calibre- 
is very great. It would be difficult to enumerate his many 
qualities. Perhaps we could describe him best as a gay- 
spirited and intense human being. Though he never mar- 
ried, he found abundant affection in the hearts of many 
families, whose children — to many of whom he was god- 
father — can bear witness to his tender qualities. 

Peter Campbell had an outstanding athletic career. He 
attended Trinity College School, Port Hope, from 1903 to 
1909, and throughout the period distinguished himself by 
his sports achievements. He was captain of both football 


and hockev teams, and in 1908 led the former to the first 
"Little Big Four" title in the School's history. His interest 
in the School never diminished, and not even his affection 
for and pride in the Canadian Army could outweigh his 
sterling devotion to his old School. 

He served it as a governor, and in its recent memorial 
campaign to raise a quarter of a million dollars, he gave 
generously of his own limited material wealth, and led all 
other canvassers in the amount he raised. The nostalgic 
memories of the carefree boyhood days spent on the lovely 
campus of T.C.S. served to stimulate him to great effort 
on behalf of the School, and it always found him an eager 
and willing friend. He did not achieve great distinction 
academically, but the School has had no more illustrious 
graduate from the sports field, and none of whom it could 
feel more proud. He was utterly democratic and num- 
bered among his friends the most prominent as well as the 
most humble in the nation. 

Sport preoccupied him also during his later career in 
Royal Military College and the University of Toronto. In 
the latter, he captained the senior hockey team in 1912. 
Following his war service, during which he became a cap- 
tain and was awarded the Military Cross, he helped to 
found the famed Toronto Granite Hockey Club, which won 
the 1924 Olympic championship. He also had a great deal 
to do with the organization of the Toronto Maple Leaf 
Hockey Club in 1927. through his association with Mr. 
Conn Smythe and others in the purchase of the St. Pat- 
rick's club franchise. Under its present name, he served 
as president of the club, sharing the vision of the great 
Maple Leaf Gardens project until it became a reality. In 
1941, he assumed the presidency of the Maple Leaf Base- 
ball Club, and his success in rehabilitating it as a success- 
ful team is common knowledge. 

Peter Campbell's warmheartedness and philanthropy 
found expression in recent years in the Variety Club, a 
group of professional sport and amusement people who 
use their talents to raise money for the benefit of crippled 
children. He was responsible for the contribution of no 
less than $53,000 from the proceeds of benefit ball games. 
This was, however, but one aspect of his generosity, and 
no one will ever know the limits of his private philanthropy 
to all who asked for help. 

His personal charm was very great, and he was always 
thoughtful of others. He possessed a keen sense of justice 


and an active spirit of good citizenship. In recent years, 
due to health, he had to restrict personal pleasures, and he 
subjected himself to a discipline of self-denial. Unfor- 
tunately, he knew of onlj'^ one way to succeed, and that 
was not to spare himself in whatever he had to do. That 
may have shortened his life, but it also left a memory 
with his host of friends of a courageous, high-spirited, 
patriotic Canadian. 

In extending our sympathy to his only surviving 
brother, it may be truly said that the sorrow attending 
Peter's passing in the hearts of his friends is scarcely less 
than that of his blood relations. 


J. P. Turner, who died on June 27th, last, was at 
T.C.S. from 1893 until 1897. He was on the Cricket Team 
and the Gymnasium Team at School and was particularly 
interested in nature study. After he left, he entered the 
Dominion Bank in Winnipeg, and later became an Insur- 
ance Agent. 

The Magazine "Rod & Gun" pays him a well deserved 
tribute and we reprint excerpts from the article: 

His interest in Canada vv^ildlife began at an early age, 
and persisted right through his busy life. It was an in- 
terest that made him an expert in outdoor sports, and 
took him to all parts of the Canadian north, even to isolated 
Mounted Police posts. In those travels he formed long 
and lasting friendships with the personnel of the old North- 
west Mounted Police, and later the Royal Canadian 
Mounted Police, and was the official historian of the latter 
body since 1939. 

All through his life he took an active part in move- 
ments designed to preserve the wildlife of this country. 
He was for many years an officer of the Manitoba Game 
Protective Association, and later became prominently 
associated with the Canadian Conservation Association, 
and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. 

He preached the gospel of conservation through in- 
numerable articles contributed to many magazines, and by 
addresses made to fish and game clubs and associations 
in all parts of the country. 


He was awarded the Carling Conservation Trophy in 
1947 in recognition of his "most Meritorious Service in 
the Cause of Conservation" and there is no doubt that this 
award was never more properly earned than by this kindly 

As was to be expected from a man of his interests 
and talents, he was an expert shot, being champion trap 
shot of Canada in 1905, and a perfect fly-fisherman. 

John Peter Turner became a regular- contributor to 
Rod and Gun in 1936 when he undertook to become editor 
of a column which he titled "Bv the Way", and for which 
he took the pen name of "Kushwaup". The association 
that began then has continued through the years, and now 
gives his passing a note of deep personal sorrow. 

It falls to the lot of editors to write many obituaries, 
and thus record the accomplishment of men who have 
passed this way; but sometimes, as is now the case, this 
duty goes far deeped and carries us to the man himself. 

John Peter Turner was a lover of animals and wild- 
life, and like all such men he acquired deep wells of kind- 
liness, and reserves of understanding such as are given to 
but a favored few. Such as he can hear music in the rain 
drops, and glimpse God in the Sunsets; they can be in tune 
v/ith Nature, and you find that dogs and horses love them. 
It is in the inevitable order of things that men like "Kush- 
waup" will give their lives to an object in which there is no 
personal gain for themselves, but in which there is good 
for their fellowmen. 

There is perhaps a tragic irony in the fact that this 
issue of Rod and Gun, which is dedicated to conservation, 
should contain the death notice of him who made the 
cause of conser-vation his lifework, but it is also peculiarly 
fitting that, if it had to be, that proper tribute should be 
given here. Let us always remember that it is men like 
John Peter Turner who have advanced conservation in the 
public consciousness. It has been their untiring effort 
that has at last awakened the great careless mass of public 
opinion to the dangers of extinction which folly has 
brought upon us, and let each and every one who reads 
this, resolve to carry on the work to which this splendid 
gentleman has given so much in the years of his vigor, and 
latterly through years of ill-health. 

The sympathy of aU at the School goes to his family. 



(£l]rtgtmas: ^ Manelual 

Anof I'.n- year is ending; a year full of ever 
increasing dangers and pitfalls, a year in 
which we have seon shattered many dreams. 
The spirit in the world today is one of pessim- 
ism, dreary depth-dredging pessimism and tho 
end is darkly obscured. From many people.-^ 
hope has fled, apparently forever, and tht 
worldly philosophies of Marx and others 
abound and attract because some belief is 
better than none. 

Thus was the world on a wintry day, a 
December 24th nineteen hundred and forty 
eight years ago. True religion and an inspiring 
belief did not exist. The inward moi'al rotten- 
ness of the world was appalling and decay was 
evident everywhere. Then Jesus Christ was 
born and a new hope and freshness, like morn- 
ing, displaced the black night of apathy. A 
new day, a new era was created. 

And this is why people year after year greet 
Christmas with joy. The spirit of fun, of gift- 
giving and receiving, is evident all over the 
Christian world. And, when it is over, one is 
renewed, given a new outlook and made 
morally resolute to make the coming year a 
better year. For one forgets, lets sink into 
oblivion, all petty fears and troubles, and only 
the good is seen and only the fine things ol 
life lie stretching ahead to the future. Let 
your Christmas be a renewal.

Address by the Rev. J. W. Foote, V.C. 

On Sunday, October 3, the Rev. J. W. Foote spoke in 
Chapel. Mr. Foote, an Honourary Old Boy of T.C.S., won 
the V.C. for his bravery and leadership as a major at 
Dieppe and during subsequent years as a prisoner-of-war. 

The Rev. Mr. Foote commenced his address by saying 
that in a school such as T.C.S., religion has great competi- 
tion with other' interests, and that it is a challenge to the 
Chaplain to prove that religion is the most important of 
these interest.s. Although many people believe that the 
time to think of religion is when worldly goals have been 
won. the truth is, if religion is sought first, the other 
things will follow. 

As examples of the importance of religion, Mr. Foote 
referred to the people of Germany. The generation of the 
first World War was taught to have a firm belief in God 
and today these people still have that faith pushing them 
on in the midst of a war-torn country. The generation of 
the past war, however, were taught that the Chrigtian 


doctrine was weak and to be disregarded. It is these latter 
people who, without faith, are finding it hard to keep 
going in the post-war world. 

The visiting minister said that when he had been 
thinking of going into politics, he had been given the fol- 
lowing advice. He was told not to think of elections and 
votes, but to do as best he could, and above all to place 
religion and honesty first, and allow success to take care 
of itself. 

In conclusion, Mr. Foote repeated his main point, say- 
ing that to be successful in anything we undertake, if the 
kingdom of God is placed first, other achievements will 


On the fourth Sunday of the term, Mr. Bagley de- 
livered a sermon on the life of St. Luke. The Chaplain 
stated that Luke is mentioned in the Scriptures only three 
times. Luke's literary accomplishments were "The Acts 
of the Apostles" and his Gospel. Renan describes the 
Gospel as "the most beautiful book in the world". It is 
positively knov^m to us that Luke was a doctor, a close 
companion of St. Paul, and never saw Christ. We also 
have two more facts, although they are less certain than 
the previous ones, namely, that he was a "Syrian of 
Antioch", and wrote Greek well. He was closely associated 
with Theophilus, a merchant-prince. Luke was probably 
a slave to TheophUus. The fact that his name was Luke, 
a slave name, and not Lucanus, bears out that fact. Luke 
was not easy to get on with, and because of this Theophilus 
sent him to sea, as a doctor on a ship. Although he ex- 
pected the ultimate of each man, he showed deepest 
sympathy for the unfortimate, the oppressed, and the suf- 

The Chaplain then summarized Luke's life. He was 
the son of wealthy parents, who were probably killed early 


in his life. It was then that LiilvC was 3o)d at Aiitioch as 
a slave to Theophilus. While at sea,, Luke met Paul, who 
completely changed his character. When Theophilus had 
heard this he recalled him to Antioch. At this point. Luke 
converted Theophilus. and in turn was granted his free- 
dom. Since it is well known that Luke had an unhappy 
early life, the Chaplain concluded with a sincere wish that 
he came to a peaceful end. 

Oil Attaining Maturitj' 

On Sunday, October 24, the School was honoured by a 
visit from Bishop Moise of Armidale, Australia. Dr. 
Moise spoke at the evening service. 

He took his text from Mark 9:4 — "And there appeared 
imto them Elijah, with Moses, and they were talking with 
Jesus". Dr. Moise pointed out the history of the Hebrews 
as an example of what he termed "spiritual growth". In 
the earliest times, the Hebrews were commanded by God 
through Moses. They then advanced into the stage where 
the great prophets led them — a sort of hero-worship. They 
eventually attained full maturity through Jesus' teaching. 

One cannot be a Christain without being mature 
spiritually. We often see people whose growth physically 
and mentally has been stunted. Yet very few of us worry 
over a person who has not matured spiritually. 

In our earliest days, our parents and Sunday School 
guide us through the commandment stage. Later when 
we are able to read we find the great heroes, the "Hero - 
Worship" level. By the time we are confirmed we begin 
to grow up spiritually, and give up ourselves to God. 

The Bishop emphasized the importance of having more 
men in the world who have matured spiritually and given 
themselves to God — in mind, in body, and in spirit. These 
are the true Sons of God.

Mr. Scott Speaks in Chapel 

On October 31, Mr. Scott spoke to the School at 
Evening Chapel. His subject was charity, not charity in 
the sense of help to the poor, but charity in the sense of 
love and respect for one's fellow. He said that this quality 
was noticeably lacking in modern life. Mr. Scott pointed 
out a very good example of this deplorable lack. Some 
ignorant or conceited persons, not wanting others to get 
ahead, criticize and literally "tear apart" others' words by 
attaching entirely new and untrue meanings to them. An 
article on this attitude was found in the Toronto "Globe 
and Mail". The editor violently attacked the habit of turn- 
ing politicians' speeches around so that a new meaning was 
derived and pointed out that there are probably some men 
who could be of great service to our government, but 
declined to enter politics because of this. 

This shows an uncharitable outlook on life or, as Mr. 
Scott said, a definite lack of brotherly love. This quality 
is extremely necessary if a country is going to get along 
at all. The uncharitable attitude of many individuals is a 
disease which spreads to the community and to the nations 
of the world. 

"And though I have the gift of prophecy, and under- 
stand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and have not 
charity, I am nothing." 


On Sunday, November 14, the Chaplain spoke on the 
subject of humility. He started by saying that the spirit 
of disdain and contempt is common to most savage tribes, 
and with the savage, love and kindness are not virtues. 
To the savage, if another tribe is powerful, it is to be hated, 
while if it is weak, it is to be treated with contempt. This 
glorification of contempt, never more exemplfied than to- 
day, is much akin to lack of humility. This spirit is not 


only found among the heathen, but is just as prevaJent 
among the cultured as the uncultured races. This is ex- 
emplified in the loathing of the Greek for the barbarian, 
the contempt of the Roman for the African, and the 
despising of the Gentile by the Jew. 

The Christian religion exalts humility, and where 
Christ is, there can be no contempt. This does not mean 
that there may not be noble scorn. There are people that 
a Christian will not number among his friends, and deeds 
that he will scorn. Even Christ rebuked Peter for striking 
off the ear of the servant of the high priest in the garden 
of Gethsemane and again, he condemned the self- righteous- 
ness of the Pharisee, many times. Self-righteousness and 
despising arise mainly from self-centredness, not from 
love of good or hatred of wrong. 

Mr. Bagley went on to say that although Jesus was 
subjected daily to the trial of being despised, in spite of 
His sensitive nature He overcame this, and in doing so. 
gave the depressed and weak sure hope. One of the main 
reasons why Jesus was able to remain free from the sin 
of despising was because He never condemned without full 
knowledge. In the book of Job, Elihu says "God is mighty 
and despiseth not any". Elihu had grasped a great truth: 
the all-knowing God, because he was all-knowing, would 
never despise. 

The Pharisaic attitude which condemns the obvious 
sinner breeds but self -righteousness in those who judge. 
Another reason men despise others is closely associated 
with this. It is that men lack a deep love of their neigh- 
bour. In the face of the God of Jesus, the humility of the 
Publican is more becoming than the pride of the Phariseo. 

As we look to Christ, contempt is blotted out. Jesus 
on the cross emphasized His teaching by forgiving the 
penitent thief. In the face of this absolution who can 
doubt that all can be saved, and who will dare judge the 
actions of a fellow sinner. Rather we should realize our 
position as the prodigal and the thief and say "Lord re- 
member me when Thou comest into Thy Kingdom." 



The sermon on November 21 was preached by the Rev. 
B. K. Cronk of the Port Hope United Church. In it he 
compared the military plannings and strategies of Alexan- 
der the Great to the preparations of Christ for his min- 
istry. Alexander prepared his campaigns by acting on the 
reports of scouts, and by building roads for his advancing 
armies. Christ's preparations consisted of thought and 
prayer, making ready for the day when He would serve 
man. Jesus realized the great opportunities for a wise 
leader in the world, but before He could attain this posi- 
tion He had many obstacles to overcome, such as position, 
family obligations, and racial prejudice. However, Christ 
overcame these by perseverance. 

Mr. Cronk called on us to persevere in our efforts to 
make life worth while. The great men of history suc- 
ceeded only through constant effort, and we are obliged 
to do our best, not only to satisfy our parents, but also 
our God.

for seven years and has displayed an excellent voice and 
great enthusiasm during all that time. Last year he was 
Head Bass. The practice for the Christmas Carol Service 
started nearly two months ago. We wish Mr. Cohu, 
Deverall and the rest of the Choir every success this year. 




Our Latest Rhodes Scholar 

On Saturday, November 6, the School was given a 
much appreciated half holiday in honour of Chester But- 
terfield ('40-'45) who was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship 
for Bermuda this year. 

Chester came to T.C.S. in 1940 and after spending a 
year in the J.S. graduated to the Senior School. He took a 
keen interest in all School activities being a member of 
Bigside soccer, gym., and cricket. He was a member of 
the Choir and was noted as a keen lover of music. In hia 
last year he was a Senior. 

On leaving T.C.S. Butterfield went into second yeai 
McGill and was a member of the McGill band. He graduated 
from McGUl last spring with honours. 

The whole School congratulates him and wishes hiiw 
every success in the future. 

An English Visitor 

'On October 21, T.C.S. was honoured by a visit of the 
former Headmaster of Rugby, one of England's largest 
and best known schools. Mr. P. H. B. Lyon is on a visit 
to Canada, New Zealand and Australia for the purpose of 
arranging exchanges of English and Commonwealth 
teachers, and his call at the School was connected with 
this matter. 


In a short speech made in the Hall, Mr. Lyon gave us 
a brief account of Rugby's history. The original provision 
for the school was made in 1576 in the will of a Rugby 
grocer, who left £100 to found a school. However, one of 
his relatives objected, and in exchange the school was left 
with one-third of a certain field instead of the £100. This 
"certain field" is now in the heart of London and annually 
brings in £10,000. 

The only thing most people know of Rugby is that the 
game which bears that name had its beginning there. But 
another distinction was that the great Thomas Arnold was 
Headmaster at one time. Arnold probably had more effect 
on boarding schools than any man before or since. He 
insisted on qualified masters, improved living conditions, 
and started the custom of rule by Prefects. He may be 
regarded as the founder of the present day form of board- 
ing schools. 

Mr. Lyon concluded his short talk by expressing his 
faith in public schools. He said that in them lay the best 
hope for the future of the world. 

The Headmaster thanked Mr. Lyon and announced a 
special half -holiday in his honour. 

Two Excellent Films 

On Wednesday, October 13, we were entertained by a 
talk given by Flight Lieutenant Middleton of the R.C.A.F. 
on the subject of jet air-power. Accompanying the talk 
was an interesting technicolour motion picture distributed 
by the General Electric Company and made by Walt Disney 
Studios on the evolution of jet air-craft. Flight Lieutenant 
Middleton is stationed at the Air Force Centre at Trenton 
and is an expert on jets. 

The movie proved to be extremely interesting. It 
started by showing the first flight at Kitty Hawk and 
explained that until recently there had been no basic 
change in the motive power of aircraft. From there the 


Dianey production delved into the development oi the jt-t 
engine, and, by use of simple and clear animated cartoons, 
the basic principles underlying the reaction motor were 
illustrated. The film went on to show the many advan- 
tages that the jet engine has over the ordinary airplane 
motor. In the picture, also, were many colourful action 
sequences of the American P-88 jet fighter, in action. 

After the motion picture Flight Lieutenant Middleton 
gave a short address on the Gloster Meteor which the 
R.C.A.F. is using at present. When he had finished, a 
short question-and-answer period was held in which a 
large number of interesting facts were brought forth. Un- 
fortunately we were rather pressed for time and the talk 
finished earlier than many had hoped. 

The next evening, Mr. Harris of the Moody Bible 
Institute kindly consented to show to the School the third 
in a series of nature films released by the Institute, en- 
titled "The Voice of the Deep". 

In this picture it is shown that in early times man 
made an experiment on under-sea noises by placing his ear 
under water and listening. He heard nothing, and so came 
to the conclusion that there was no sound under water. 
But recently with the help of new scientific instruments it 
has been proved that the sea abounds with noise. This 
was shown in the movie by beautiful undersea colour shots 
showing the special microphone placed near the lovely fish 
which abound in the water. By means of the microphone we 
actually heard some of the strange noises made by the 

In linking up this interesting experiment with religion 
in our everyday life, the movie pointed out that merely 
because we cannot see and hear our God, it is no reason 
for us to give up our Christian beliefs. 

The School is very grateful to Flight Lieutenant 
Middleton and to Mr. Harris for coming to show us these 
interesting films and we sincerely hope for a repeat per- 
formance in the near future.

Talk oil Crermany 

At the Lodge one night recently. Bill McDougall ('42- 
•45). Peter Dobell ('42-'45), and Ed. Cosford gave an in- 
formal talk on conditions in Germany. Members of the 
VJ Form and VA were allowed to attend, and, as all three 
speakers had visited Germany last summer on educn,tional 
tours sponsored jointlj^ by the International Student 
Service and UNESCO, they gave us some very good in- 
formation on the situation in Germany. 

Bill McDougall started the discussion by giving a 
picture of the general conditions, a^ regards clothing, 
food, and buildings. His pictures were not vivid but he 
gave us all the necessary facts. The clothing of the German 
people is very poor, children are going about the streets 
in rags, and the food is extremely scarce. Most of the 
cities, especially Hamburg, are in a state of complete chaos. 
The E.R.P. helped only the material side not the moral, 
and he emphasized that conditions are a lot worse than 
we can imagine. 

Ed. Cosford spoke excellently on the educational and 
moral aspects of life in Germany. There are few univer- 
sities, poor facilities, and what is worse very few students. 
The average German is not educated, and would favour 
any political party which offered him help. They look to 
us for help, but if we do not help them, they are ripe 
ground for Communism and they will give away their 
freedom for any material, or moral aid. Their experience 
with democracy has been limited, and poor. Under men 
like Hitler they have learnt a sense of values, which within 
a few years has been proved false, and completely de- 
stroyed. Now the German has notliing on which to reiy. 
and some authorities think that it will be three generations 
before he will recover. The average German regards a 
politician as inferior, and as a result there are few able 
government leaders in Germany. 

Peter Dobell gave us a very good summary of what 
the other two had mentioned, and he emphasized the need

for education and moral support. We must educate theai 
to a Democratic way of thinking, if we wish to have peace. 
He went on to say that the recovery of Germany was 
essential to peace, because it is the industrial centre of 
Western Europe, and because it is an essential link from 
our economic point of view. Therefore it must not fail 
into hostile hands, because it is essential to world trade, 
and our hope for peace. 

Afterwards a few questions were asked, and everyone 
seemed to find the evening a profitable one, as well aa 
thoroughly enjoyable. 

"The Far-Off HiUs" 

On Tuesday, November 16, the Dramatic Society wats 
given leave to see "The Far-Off Hills", a comedy put on 
at St Mark's Parish Hall by the People's Repertory 

This play was extremely well done and although it 
was rather long all the boys enjoyed it. After the final 
curtain, the members of the Dramatic Society went back- 
stage and had an informal chat with the cast. This group 
of players is visiting Ontario towns this winter with three 
different plays on its repertoire. Next year they hope to 
start a summer-theatre in the Cobourg district. 

The boys present thought it a pity that the whole 
School could not be there, but perhaps if this company of 
actors returns to Port Hope, all will be allowed to attend. 

Lantern Slides 

One recent night Mr. Humphrey came to the School 
to give a lecture and show some excellent slides on British 
Columbia, Mr. Humphrey has toured Canada extensively, 
having crossed the country one hundred and four times. 

The slides were in very beautiful colour and showed to 
the best advantage the mountains, valleys, and rivers of 


British Columbia. We were taken on a mythical trip 
through the mountains and the Arrowhead and Kootenay 
lake systems. Mr. Humphrey also had slides on the in- 
dustry of the province exemplified in the large Kimberly 
Mine, producing eight thousand tons of zinc, lead, and 
silver per day ; and one of the world's largest copper mines, 
that at Britannia Beach. 

To conclude the excellent showing, Mr. Humphrey 
showed slides of some of B.C.'s cities such as Vancouver 
and Victoria, the capital. The main characteristics of the 
cities are their extreme beauty and cleanliness as is shown 
by Vancouver's Stanley Park. After the showing of the 
slides, Mr. Humphrey gave a short lecture, pointing out 
how at such a School as T.C.S. boys may get the good 
education and the qualities of resourcefulness and initia- 
tive that are so needed b\' men in public life. 

The School is very grateful to Mr. Humphrey for com- 
ing to give such an interesting and instructive hour. We 
hope to be able to see him again, perhaps on his one 
hundred and sixth journey across the Dominion. 

Henry The Fifth 

On Monday, October 15, the whole School received 
special movie leave to attend the matinee performance of 
the famous film, "King Henry V". 

The photography of this film was excellent, and to 
use technicolour was a very wise choice, for everywhere, 
the bright colour of knights in armour predominated. The 
acting was done in the wonderful way that only Lawrence 
Olivier could possibly do it. Some people thought that n 
few of the scenes were boring, notably, to anyone who is 
familiar with the movie, the love scene near the end. This 
is probably due to the fact that modem love-making is on 
a different level from this old style of wooing. 

The majority of the School thoroughly enjoyed this 
afternoon of entertainment, which proved especially use- 


ful to the forms that are studying the play this year. We 
only hope that more of these educational films will come 
to Port Hope, for if they are all like "Heniy V", everyone 
will undoubtedly enjoy them equally as well as they did 
this great film. 

First Concert in the Hall 

On the evening before the U.C.C. game the School 
was entertained by a concert in the Hall. Mr. Adam Gaw, 
tenor, Mr. Ben Lithgow, baritone, and Mr. Frederick 
Skitch, pianist, were the accomplished artists. 

Although Mr. Gaw was suffering from a severe cold, 
he sang very well a wide range of selections including 
such pieces as "O Mistress Mine", a Shakespearean ballad 
set to music, and "Take A Pair of Sparkling Eyes" from 
the operetta "The Gondoliers" by Gilbert and Sullivan. He 
also sang a duet with Mr. Lithgow entitled "Watchman 
What Of The Night". Mr, Gaw was formerly a featured 
artist on the Navy Show and is well known throughout the 
province. Mr, Lithgow, who proved the more populai 
artist with his deep baritone, sang "The Pilgrim Song" by 
Tschaikovsky and "Dance Macabre" by Saint-Saens. 

Frederick Skitch, the pianist and a native of Port 
Hope, accompanied the singers and played excellently two 
compositions by Chopin and Liszt. 

This proved to be a very successful concert and thanks 
are due to the visiting artists. We wish them every success 
in their musical careers. 

The Music Hours 

The Friday night music hours were instituted in the 
School to give the boys some knowledge and perhaps liking 
for good music. The first hours usually consist of the 
lighter classics and a few of the heavier pieces are in- 
sinuated as the year progresses. Popular among this first 


group were Tschaikovsky's Marche Slave and Rimsky- 
Korsakov's march from the Tsar Saltan. In the latter 
category, Bach's Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring was also ver>' 
well received. A new record player has been installed in 
the Hall, and the tone of the music has been much im- 
proved. This has. unfortunately, been offset at times by 
the disturbing hum of conversation, but perhaps, as the 
year advances, interest in the music will eventually com- 
mand the respect it is due — absolute silence. 

The Junior Debating Society' 

In addition to the School Debating Society, a Junior 
Debating Society has been formed this year. It is affiliated 
with the senior group, but is in no way dependent on it, 
having its own executive. In the first meeting cf the year. 
Gordon was elected President, Martin ii vice-president and 
Ketchum secretary. Already a schedule of debates has 
been mapped out for the coming term. To begin with, the 
junior debaters will only debate before small audiences, 
holding their sessions in rooms H & K. It is hoped, how- 
ever, that later on some of them may be able to hold a full- 
dress debate in the Hall. The Society was formed to in- 
crease interest in public speaking in the lower forms and 
eventually to raise the standard in the sixth form and 
generally throughout the School. 

The Art Group 

Mr. Key's third form class and his special Art Group 
have been most productive this term. Posters have been 
put up in the classroom block before each Bigside rugby 
game and these were very popular. At Mrs. Ketchum's 
request, posters were also made for the Children's Aid 
Society campaign and were distributed among the shop 
windows in town. Owing to competition from Rugby and 


Soccer the Art Group has had Uttle time for any serious 
work to date but this situation has ended with the cessa- 
tion of these sports. Several of the headings for the dif- 
ferent sections of the Record have been changed, new ones 
by Macklem having been substituted. The third form have 
begun work on the lino-cuts which they make for Christmas 
cards. These are later printed and are really very pleasing 
and far more original than the usual run-of-the-mill type 
one can buy. Although interest in Art throughout the 
School is not exactly feverish, there are enough boys in- 
terested to keep the group running strongly, and there 
seem to be some promising artists in the third form. The 
prospects of a good year m this unpublicized field of 
school life seem bright. 

Dramatic Society 

After much deliberation the Society has decided to 
present the play "Charley's Aunt" as its annual Easter 
Production. The cast has been tentatively selected with 
Paterson ii, Hughes i, and Taylor i in the main roles as 
Lord Fancourt-Babberly, Jack, and Charley respectively. 
Supporting these three are Doheny as Col. Sir Francis 
Chesney, Bovey in the role of Donna Lucia, Levey as Maud, 
Ketchmn as Ela Delahaye, Chester as Farmer, Timmins 
as Spettigue, Pitt and VandenBergh as Amy and Kitty 
respectively and Slater as Brasset the butler. Every in- 
dication points toward one of the most successful plays in 
many years, with many old members back and an early 
start having been made. 

Political Science Club 

At the second meeting of the Political Science Club 
the members voted on their choices for the year's topic. 
It was decided by a very narrow margin to study this year 
the general set-up and the various accomplishments and 


aims of the United Nations. One new member, dePenciev 
was elected to bring the present total to seventeen. The 
Qub decided this year to join the local branch of the 
United Nations Society which distributes a great deal of 
helpful material on the subject to be discussed. 

Hansard Societ>^ Conference On Parliament 

About ten ardent students of the Political Science, 
selected from the fifth and sixth Forms, attended a confer- 
ence on Parliamentary affairs in Convocation Hall at the 
University of Toronto on November 12. The conference was 
organized by the Hansard Society of Canada, whose pur- 
pose is to foster increased interest in Parliamentary-^ 
affairs through more popular use of Hansard. 

There were morning and afternoon sessions. In the 
morning, speeches were given by Miss Agnes McPhail, 
former C.C.F. member of the Federal Parliament and now 
a member of the Ontario Legislature: Hughes Cleaver, an 
Ontario M.P. ; John Diefenbaker. one of the ablest par- 
liamentarians in Canada today, and a P.C. Member of 
Parliament, and Jean Francois Pouliot, an Independent- 
Liberal M.P. from Quebec who is well-known for his 
vociferous but honest speeches on the floor of the House. 
(Mi;. Cleaver took the place of the Hon. Paul Martin who 
was unable to attend). All the speeches were amusing 
and interesting and undoubtedly clarified the minds of the 
audience on the chosen topics. 

In the afternoon, the speakers held a round-table dis- 
cussion during which questions submitted by members 
of tiye audience were answered in an interesting and con- 
troversial manner. The only member of the Schoors 
"delegation" to be selected to ask a question was Taylor i, 
whose question was "Does an M.P. have to toe the party 
line?" The afternoon session was recorded and re-broad- 
cast later in a condensed version on the C.B.C. 

Those who attended the meeting found it highly in- 
formative and the lively personalities of the speakers 


added no end to the interest value. They are grateful for 
the opportunity given them by the Hansard Society and 
especially its director, Willson Woodside. 

First Cadet Parade 

On Sunday, November 8, the School Cadet Corps took 
part in a parade which accompanied the opening ceremonies 
of the recently completed Legion Hall of Port Hope. The 
Corps marched down town after lunch to the park behind 
the Post Office, where the parade was made up. Marching 
in the parade were the Port Hope Brass Band, a colour 
guard, Port Hope High School Cadets, Boy Scouts, Girl 
Guides, and our Cadets. The parade marched up Walton 
Street, and turned right at the railroad tracks. The saluting 
base was on Young Street, where Major-General Howard 
D. Graham took the salute. Then the parade and many 
spectators formed up around the outside of the Legion 
Hall beside the town rink, A short service followed, con-

The New Boys' Party 

Once again on Hallowe'en the Prefects and Seniors 
gave a party for the New Boys. As usual it was a great 

The first event was the obstacle race held in the Gym. 
Brent, after having lost an early lead, came from behind to 
win. However, Bethune House New Boys succeeded Lq 
retrieving more apples from the pool than Brent, winning 


by a count of 201 to 182. This was a complete reversal 
from last year, when Bethune won the obstacle race but 
lost the ducking for apples to Brent by a very narrow 

The upper floors of the classroom block gave the 
impression of being struck by a tornado as a result of a 
treasure hunt for chocolate bars. Judging by the smiles 
on most of the faces everyone found a few. 

To round out a very pleasant evening refreshments 
were served to the entire Senior School in the Hall. Our 
thanks are due to the Prefects and Seniors, and to Mrs. 
Wilkin and her staff for providing a very enjoyable evening. 

New Privileges 

The School would like to congratulate the new Privi- 
leges which have been made since the last issue of the 
Record, Gilley as a Senior, and Scowen, Thompson iii, and 
Wilson i as House Officers. 

T.B. Tests 

Everyone in the School has been given a patch test 
for T.B. by Dr. McDerment this term. All those who 
were unfortunate enough to react to the test were X-rayed. 
Probably the most unhappy aspect of this otherwise un- 
newsworthy event was the fact that no one was allowed 
to have a shower for the forty-eight hours that the patch 
was on. The boys of Brent House claimed that this didn't 
necessitate any change of the habits of those unfortunates 
in Bethune but doubtless Mr. Bagley has another version 
of the story. 

Activity in the Woodwork Shop 

The Record Staff would like to thank Strathy ii and 
Watts who (no doubt with the help of Mr. Scott) made for 


the Record Room two wooden trays to hold the cuts of 
pictures which have appeared in past Records. For many 
years these have been left in hopeless piles and it was 
practically impossible to find the one needed for reference 
or re-use. This is certainly a welcome addition to the 
Record Room. 

A Great Improvement 

Mr. Scott, besides taking Maths, and Science classes, 
being Housemaster of Brent, handling the Chapel and 
Dining Hall seating, the Billiard Club, the Workshop and 
the Oxford Cup Race, also finds time to perform many odd 
jobs around the School that escape the notice of most 
people. KQs latest bit of work has been the repainting of 
the School signs which hang at the intersection of the 
Hospital and School roads. The last time this was done, 
we believe, was in the summer of 1942, that time also by 
Mr. Scott. As can well be imagined, a new coat was long 
overdue and the shiny maroon and gold signs will cer- 
tainly help improve our visitors' first impressions of the 

The School Council 

The following have been elected to represent their 
forms in the School Council; the names in brackets are 
those of the alternate members. 

VI Scholarship, Stratford (Palmer) ; VIA, Austin 
(Maclaren) ; VIB, Little (Deverall) ; VA, Winspear (Green- 
wood) : VB, Hogarth (Bums) ; VC, Cox (Howard) ; IVA, 
Smith ii (Butterfield ii) ; IVB & C, Strathy i (Woods i) : 
HLA, McDemient (Clark) ; IIIB, Osier (Watts) ; New Boys, 
Miller (Martin ii). 

Meetings of the School Council are held every two 
weeks on days decided by the members. In these gather- 
ings all matters affecting the School will be discussed from 


the point of view of each member. It has been recom- 
mended by the Headmaster that form presidents hold meet- 
ings from time to time to discover their opinions and then 
present these opinions to the Council. The School Council 
has given useful guidance to the School in the last few 
years and we hope that it will continue to be as helpful. 

Whole Holidaj 

On Sunday. November 14. the Headmaster announced 
at supper that a son had been bom to Princess Elizabeth 
and Prince Philip. The news was greeted with unrestrained 
enthusiasm, repeated at the end of the evening meal when 
it was decided that we should celebrate by having a whole 
holiday the next day. Monday. 

After a late breakfast the competition for the Kicking, 
Catching and Passing Cup was held. There was a special 
matinee of "The Best Years of Our Lives" in the after- 
noon, and we remembered the new member of the Royal 
Family at evening chapel. Long live the new Royal 

New Furniture for the Common Rooms 

The Seniors' and House Officers' Common Roomis have 
just recently been improved by the addition of some new 
furniture. The House Officers were particularly fortunate. 
A new chesterfield and four new chairs of the type which 
is impossible to tilt back have been added. They are all 
green and improve the appearance of the room unbe- 
lievably. The Seniors acquired a new sofa which lends to 
the smartness of the room and with their recent addition 
of the record player formerly in the Hall, they are now 
well equipped for comfort. 


Our New China 

On arriving at lunch a few weeks ago we were greeted 
by the sight of shiny new plates, dishes, and bowls, each 
one decorated with the School crest and a wide maroon 
band. Upon further investigation it was revealed that 
these have been on order from England for over two years. 
A stamp on the back informs us that each piece is "Super 
Vitrified" which means, we hope, that they won't easily 
break. The new china has been much admired and we 
like its distinctive nature. 

New Books in the Library- 
Several generous donations of books have been made 
recently to the Library by Mrs. S. C. Goering, Ben Cole, 
D. W. MacLean, Dr. J. F. G. Lee, R. D. Butterfield, and 
the Ladies Guild. These, with the several books the Library 
itself has added, have practically filled the "new book" 
shelf. Among the new books are "T.C.S. Old Boys At 
War", "Gentlemen's Agreement", "The Varsity Story". 
"Pilgrim's Inn", "Time Of Peace", "On Being Canadian", 
and "Jan Christian Smuts". 

Letter of Appreciation 

The Athletic Director of Malvern Collegiate, Toronto, 
has written to say how much the Malvern football teams 
enjoyed their visit to T.C.S. in October. "The boys stili 
refer to the trip quite frequently," he says, "and they re- 
call the delicious Virginia ham they had for lunch. We 
followed your games closely and went to see your game 
with Upper Canada. We thought your lads played very well, 
considering the weight and strength of their opponents. "

The Senior Debating Society opened its season on 
November 20 with the resolution "That one should 'go 
steady' before reaching college." The Government was 
represented bj' Byers, Black, and Thompson i whUe the 
Opposition consisted of Huycke. dePencier, and Paterson ii 
vnth C. Taylor, President of the Society, as Speaker. 

The Government covered the topic very well and pre- 
sented some quite convincing arguments. They pointed 
out that one was always sure of a date with the steady 
and that by going steady for a period of several months 
with one girl one was able to choose more carefully when 
the time came for a permanent decision. All of the Govern- 
ment speeches centred around this theme. The Opposition 


stated that going steady led to disappointments, lowei-ed 
scholastic standings and caused a drain on the finances. 
Paterson pomted out that like fishing, romance was more 
the thrill of the strike and the fight than the actual fish. 
Byers rebutted well but was unable to sway the final 

Although the first of the season, this debate went 
very well despite an apparent lack of preparation by one 
speaker. The Government possibly had better points but 
the Opposition presented its case more effectively. The 
topic of the debate was probably largely responsible for 
numerous speeches from the floor at the conclusion of the 
formal debating. 

The judges, Mr. Knight. Doheny and Stratford gave 
the decision unanimously to the Opposition and a division 
of the house upheld their decision by a large majority. 
Byers and Huycke were the best speakers of the evening. 


The first Junior Debate, held in rooms H & K, set a 
very high standard. For the Government, Symons, Lewis, 
and Martin ii who set out to prove that the modem use of 
cosmetics was deplorable, were defeated by a very slight 
margin by Taylor ii, Watts and Brierley. The Govern- 
ment pointed out that cosmetics were unhealthy and a 
waste of money, and illustrated their points with some 
very witty stories. The first speaker for the Opposition, 
and the outstanding debater of the night, Taylor ii, stated 
that the use of cosmetics was instinctive in human beings. 
His colleagues pointed out that cosmetics, while giving 
many people jobs, were not unhealthy, and could be an 
asset if used in the proper way. The judges, after retiring 
for. a considerable length of time, returned with a split 
decision for the Opposition, and the house upheld this 
verdict. It must be remembered, however, that the Govern- 
ment had the harder topic and they are to be congratu- 
lated on their humorous handling of the debate which 
came very close to winning them the decision. 





G. B. STRATHY (*95-'97) 

Among living T.C.S. Old Boys. G. B. Strathy is one to 
whom the School owes much. Mr. Strathy has been a 
member of the Governing Body since 1915, and until his 
retirement two years ago was its first permanent chair- 
man. He was closely connected with the arrangements for 
rebuilding the School after the fire of 1928, and he has 
always given most generously to the various appeals of the 

Mr. Strathy arrived at "The School on the Hill," or 
rather the school just over the top of the hill, as it was 
then, in January 1895, just in time for the fire in F'ebruai'y. 
According to him, this was extremely unpleasant for all 
concerned. There was at least six feet of snow on the 
ground, and it occurred in sub-zero weather. The fire 
broke out at about eleven p.m., and most of the boys were 
unable to dress. Like the others. Mr. Strathy was forced 
to brave the elements in his dressing gown. A bucket 
brigade was formed, but in spite of the best efforts, the 
entire School, with the exception of the gymnasium, burned 
to the ground. The heavy snow made the arrival of the 
Port Hope fire brigade difficult, and by the time they 
arrived, the fire was completely out of control. The towns- 
people of Port Hope came gallantly to the rescue on the 
night of the fire, and all the boys were taken care of in 
private homes for a week or so. until arrangements could 


be completed to take over the St. Lawrence Hotel and other 
rentable accommodation. Most of the boys lived in the 
hotel, and classes were held there and in the Town Hail 
until the end of the school year in June. In the following 
October, the new buildings were more or less ready for 
occupation. To the boys, the new school was a palace com- 
pared with the old. The sanitary arrangements were ail 
indoors, housed in a wing extending to the north. It was 
a long trip downstairs to the bathrooms, but the boys were 
allowed to take as many baths as they liked, hot on Satur- 
day night, warm on Sunday and Monday, but getting veiy 
cold as the week wore on. 

According to Mr. Strathy, boys at the School have a 
very soft time of it compared to the old days prior to the 
fire of 1895. The Saturday night bath was taken in a 
wooden wash-tub in the basement instead of in showers 
with unlimited hot water as there is to-day. However, this 
was not the worst inconvenience by any means. At the 
rear of the School were a number of shed-like edifices, 
placed there for an obvious purpose, and on a cold vrniter 
day v/ith the wind whistling through they were somewhat 
uncomfortable, to say the least. However, life at the 
School in those days had its compensations. The old Tuck 
was then at its height, and for ten cents one could buy an 
apple pie and a pitcher of thick cream! 

As is still the case, over-confidence was then the bogey 
of many a T.C.S. team. The cricket team of 1895 was 
probably the most powerful in the history of the School, 
winning the school championship and defeating the Toronto 
Cricket Club first team. Their only loss was to a much 
poorer team, the Deserontos, whom they should have 
beaten easily, but being over-confident, they lost. 

In his final year Mr. Strathy played on the first cricket 
team, was spare man on the football team, and in addition 
was Head Boy and a Prefect. After leaving the School he 
attended Trinity College and took his degree in 1900. In 
his final year Mr. Strathy was Editor-in-Chief of the 



Trinitj' Review, secretary of the Athletic Association, was 
a member of all the College teams, and graduated first in 
his class. He entered Osgoode Hall in 1900, and was called 
to the Bar in 1903. During the Great War, Mr. Strathy 
served overseas from April 1915 to September 1919. and 
was demobilized with the rank of major. 

At present Mr. Stiathy is senior partner of the firm 
of Strathy, Cowan and Setterington, which also numbers 
two other Old Boys, Colin Strathy and Montgomery Guim. 
Mr. Strathy was created King's Counsel in 1928. He has 
been a member of the Corporation of Trinity College for 
over forty years, and was formerly chairman of its execu- 
tive committee. He is a director of the Fidelity Insurance 
Company of Canada, and president of the Toronto Mort- 
gage Company. At one time or another Mr. Strathy has 
been president of the University Club of Toronto, the 
Badminton and Racquet Club of Toronto, and vice-presi- 
dent of the Toronto Golf Club. 

Few men have given such untiring and generous ser- 
vice to their old School; we are deeply grateful to him. 

— ^W. Herridge. VI Sch. 



Thanksgiving Weekend, while eagerly awaited by the 
senior boys of the School (i.e. those who have spent at 
least one year at T.C.S.). is the dread of the New Boys. 
For this is the weekend on which the alumni return to 
their old gathering place. A highlight of this weekend Ls 
without doubt the football game. Since many Old Boys 
who play in these games have graduated to intercollegiate 
ranks, the standard of football is fairly high, but one can- 
not deny that this game has its humorous aspects. 

Naturally it never occurs to the prides and joys of 
T.C.S. to bring equipment. This lapse of memory in- 
variably provides new boys with a little sport in the foiin 
of a scavenger hunt. The spice of this game is that most 
of the second and third years devise ways of hiding their 
equipment, as in most cases they are very fond of it and 
would like to retain it until the end of the season. 

At last, however, everyone has received equipment, 
and precisely fifteen minutes after starting time the first 
Old Boy staggers onto the field, the rest bringing up the 
rear about ten minutes later. Immediately upon arriving, 
they whip through a light signal practice, and by some 
unknown method the starting team is chosen, and the game 
commences. Every five minutes a flood of reinforcements 
pours in, and thus the "old-fellows" keep going untU half- 
time, when a half -hour intermission is called, and they 
retire to lick their wounds and blow a few smoke rings. 

At the end of this respite, the twelve youngest old 
boys throw down their cigarettes and sprint ( ?) onto the 
field. Unlimited substitution is still the rule, and it is to 
be noted that in recent years the Old Boys, by dint of pure 
man-power, have won several games. When the final 
whistle blows, three cheers are given, and the great men 
collapse. They invariably recover, however, in time to get 
over to Mr. Ketchum's for tea, where they discuss the 
many feats of skill and daring performed that afternoon. 



Perhaps Lew Hayman or Johnny Metras would not think 
much of this game, but who cares, for it is an important 
feature of T.C.S. tradition. 

—A. Black, VI B. 


At their last meeting, (five days before the dead-line) 
the Feature Staff decided to hold a poll of school opinion. 
This, therefore, is the result of necessity, not of an> 
artistic inspiration. 

Although these statistics are not of world-shaking 
importance, it is to be hoped that they are more accurate 
than those recently obtained by a certain polling organiza- 
tion in the United States. 

The majority of the questions were asked in complete 
seriousness, but some of the replies were surprising, to say 
the least. The first question was "What political party 
do you favour?" The Progressive Conservatives accounted 
for the votes of 51^ r of the School, and the Liberals for

25% more. A cautious lO'V remained undecided, and the 
rest of the School was split among numerous other parties. 
It was not expected that much deep thought would be put 
on this question, but the Editor shudders at the political 
standards of those who answered "stag" or "breakfast" 

The second question, "What is your favourite dish?" 
was asked with the proverbial tongue-in-cheek. The fol- 
lowing results were obtained. Steak appealed to 13^/c of 
the School, and chicken to 10%. Chinese food was tops 
with 5%, and roast beef with the same percent. Various 
other foods were named by 31 7^. tastes ranging from 
souffle to moose steak. And it is not difficult to picture 
one boy sitting on his bed and dreamily replying "A home 
meal cooked at home." However, these were not the only 
answers. Anne .... ? ? ! ! ! (Censored) was voted for 
by 4%, and girls (unspecified) by 15%. 

The next, less flippant in nature, merited such in- 
spired replies as "Yes" and "No". (A prize will be given 
to any reader who can guess the question from the in- 
formation just given. No money to send, no essays to 
write, no puzzles to solve. Send only two Record covers 
with your answer.) For those who don't already know, 
the question was "Which would you prefer, a whole holi- 
day on Saturday and classes on Wednesday afternoon, or 
the present system?" The percentages worked out as fol- 
lows: present system 68%, whole on Saturday 28%, and 
no opinion 4%. (Editor's note: You are kindly requested 
not to total the percentages, as our adding machine is not 
always infallible.) 

It was decided that this following question would not 
be asked in public, because it has been known to have pro- 
duced some very violent arguments. "Are you in favour 
of the New Look?" After 64% had replied in the affirma- 
tive, 33% had shouted "No", and 3% had had no opinion. 
we cautiously ventured to ask "Why?" One boy, having re- 
plied that he was in favour, added "Because the girl I go 


around with needs it." Another, after explaining that it 
was a waste of money, said " . . . . and, well you know 
what I mean." 

Question five, "What is your favourite band or 
orchestra?" was given the following replies. Glen Miller 
10^^, Tex Beneke S^,r, Tommy Dorsey I'r, Stan Kenton 
6^'r, and so on down to Henry Red Allen with 2^r. It seems 
as if 93' r of the School did not pay any attention to the 
last word of the question. However, the 7^/r that did, 
placed the Philadelphia Symphony on top with 4%, and 
the N.B.C. Symphony next with 2yr . The five Bermudians 
voted as a solid bloc for their native Talbot Brothers, who 
also obtained one more vote. (One of them must have 
been polled twice.) 

The next on the poll, "Would you prefer baseball to 
cricket at T.C.S. ?" resulted in a win for cricket by the 
score of 54 'y to 46'^^. All that can be said for baseball 
is "Yer out!" 

However, there was nothing close about number 
seven. "Do you think that the New Boy system is bene- 
ficial to the School?" One boy had no opinion, and the 
rest answered as follows: Yes 93 ''i^ , and No 7^/f . 

(Readers who have been wondering where the in- 
evitable school poll question is, need wonder no longer — 
it is here.) "What career do you intend to follow?" As 
in previous polls. Engineering led the field, this year witli 
189^. Medicine and Business tied for second with 109^. 
After these came Law with S'f , Science with 59^. and the 
Diplomatic Service with 4' r . Journalism and Architec- 
ture attracted 3^/c each, and Military and the Ministrj' 
2^f A surprisingly small 9^r was undecided, and the r^^st 
of the School was divided in ones and twos among such 
careers as Farming, Geology. Forestry, and even Ranching. 

Tht next question, "Who is your favourite movie 
actress?" was the cause of numerous grunts of disgust 
from the room-mates of the boys being interviewed. 
Although many may not agree with these results, we hope 



that they represent a true picture of the opinion of the 
School. (Poll-conductor's dream.) Rita Hayworth was 
voted for by 15' ^. and was second only to a little-known 
actress names Others, who got a vote of 20 '/r . Following 
these two v/ere Ingrid Bergman with 12%, June Ally son 
with. 7%, and Jeanne Craine with 6%. Local talent in the 
form of "Miss" Ian Bovey captured the votes of 5%. a 
serious threat to Hollywood. 

The tenth and last (aren't you glad it's here) ques- 
tion was "What is your favourite magazine?" "Life" 
came first with 35%, "Time" following a long way be- 
hind with 21 'r. "Saturday Evening Post" and "Popular 
Mechanics" came next with IS^c and 3% respectively. 
Although they wonder about the quality of his reading 
material, the Editors are indebted to the one boy who 
named the Record as his favourite magazine. 

—A. O. Aitken, VI A. 





A last the signal came. He surged forward with the 
rest. Although he would not have admitted it. he knew 
he was nervous, and supposed the rest to be the same. It 
was strange that they should be nervous, they had all 
been prepared for- this, only today was a little different. 

He could hear the others near him, the slither of their 
feet on the gravel, their hot, heavy breathing. He won- 
dered if they realized what they were in for; they must, 
they weren't novices or fools. 

Ahead of him were two or three runners and a long, 
dirt-covered road, behind him — he did not look behind. 

The road ran uphill, at least so it seemed. He could 
not be sure; he felt as though the road always was uphill. 
He knew he ought not to start thinking like that, there 
were still miles of agony to go. 

The sun, glaring down like a disdainful eye. was 
cruelly hot, and the perspiration ran down his forehead 
into his eyes, which seemed conveniently placed for the 
purpose. He wanted to wipe them dry. but that would 
mean slowing down. He tried to forget about them. 

He glanced at his watch ; it regarded him coolly like 
a superior adversary. He was starting to feel tired, his 
legs hurt, his breath escaped like spent steam from a 


The first land-mark appeared. He was ten seconds 
late, a bad start. He tried to go a little faster, then he 
felt it. The cramp started in the pit of his stomach, and 
diffused itself gradually over his abdomen. He fought to 
keep going; each step was a new agony; his breath came 
m painful gasps, try as he would to inhale deeply. He 
had slowed down considerably, people began to plod past 
him, — one — two — three— he didn't count them after that. 

Slowly, slowly it began to leave him, or perhaps he 
was getting used to it; he could not tell. Gradually his 
contorted face relaxed, and he breathed more regularly. 

He resumed as well as he could his normal speed, 
leaving behind him one or two who were undergoing the 
tortures he had just overcome. He realized how fortunate 
he had been not to have succumbed — left in the ditch, a 
twisted wreck. 

The hardest was behind him, the fences, the ploughed 
fields where each furrow seemed to regard him as a per- 
sonal enemy. He had crossed the last of these, clumsily 
stumbling over each clod, breathing half -voiced curses as 
they moved into position to trip him. 

His thigh had been cut, and every time his foot hit 
the groimd a throb pierced his leg. There was a blister on 
his heel, he didn't care which one, and he longed to plunge 
his aching feet into water. 

He tried to swallow, and almost cried out. His throat 
seemed to crack. A shifting blur slowly appeared, eons 
away. Into his poimding head came a sound like the roar- 
ing of the sea. His driving legs and reeling body were no 
longer a part of him and suddenly he was surrounded, 
cheered, congratulated. A wonderful numbness blanketed 
him, he relaxed.

Of som't'ing not so poor.

For inspiration dere; 
But finally I find in vain, 

Der's nodding dere to spare. 

'Tween Drummond and 'is Lac St. Pierre

And den to see las' year's attempt,

Across the frontier exists a strange land of name- 
calling, insults, and conservatism. Every four years this 
abusive spirit comes to the fore. The cause ? — the American 
presidential election. 

This is a remarkable phenomenon which P. T. Bamum 
could possibly have called "the greatest show on earth," 
for in the days of the turn of the century American politics 
was proudly parading corruption, patriotism and show- 
manship. Those were the days of the biggest, rowdiest 
conventions, held first by one party and then by another, 
each trying for the honour of being the most inebriated 
and the most exemplary exponents of American political 
freedom and democracy. Those, too, were the days of 
BuU-Moosers and Teddy Roosevelt, of thumping oratories 
and William Jennings Bryan. Those were the men who first 
stumped the country by campaign trains, addressing mill- 
ing multitudes in smoky assembly halls or from the rear 
of their trains. They embodied the boisterous spirit which 
grew less and less sensible in the years preceding World 
War I. Once someone started a cry, most of the nation 
would take it up with gusto, and this boisterousness spread 
even to the campuses, from which an innocuous, idealistic 
college professor was stolen and hoisted into the presi- 

And now, after some thirty years of comparatively 
dull competitions, the American people seem to be revert- 
ing to their old appreciation of spirited campaigns (lots 
and lots of spirit and spirits freely handed out). From 
June to November of this year we in Canada suffered 
many, but not all of the vaudevillian acts presented to the 
American audience. Of course, the most evident of these 
were the party conventions — that of the Republicans in 
June, the Democrats in July, and the Progressives the fol- 
lowing month, all held in that conservative Quaker village, 
Philadelphia. How could we fail to note the Old Grandad 
spirit exuding over the air waves? 



A great pity regarding the Democratic Convention 
was its pervading spirit of depressed pessimism. Little 
did they know how successful they would finally be! Bui 
if they had, they would most definitely have lived up to 
their traditional energy. According to a political authority 
the Democrats started it first! 

This year television made its most prominent debut 
at the conventions. Radio, of course, still provides the 
greatest public access to these affairs. While radio was 
the one and only means, the lack of personality which a 
candidate exudes over the radio could be made up for 
partially by tours. Now the American presidential candi- 
date must be a compromise — he must have as much as 
possible of the suave, friendly radio voice which Franklin 
Roosevelt utilized, and as much as possible of the oratori- 
cal showmanship of Teddy Roosevelt and Bryan. 

In years to come this compromise will be brought out 
fully by popular use of television. But Heaven help the 
Harry Ti-umans and Tom Deweys of days to come, for- no 
Roosevelt or Bryan ever had to gesticulate impressively 
under the terrific heat of klieg-lights and the stickiness of

I cannot say 

If I shall ever see 

The age of tribulation. 

When the wall shall crack 

Under the weight of decay 

And he on the roof -top shall be lost. 

I cannot say if I shall ever see 

These days of the earth's falling, 

And the coming of the Doom; 

For what I live has no time — 

It wastes away with the wind 

In the night succeeding. 

The springs of the past are stopped, 

And hidden are the fountains of the future. 

This age is Hesitation. 

Waters move by in the darkness 

Carrying li^'ing music, 

I know not where. 

My soul would follow, 

But the call of a raven 

Arrests me, and like summer dust 

I am blown nowhere 

By the wind. 

What I am is a broken statue, 
Marble and silver in the dust. 

But with thy help, O Builder 

I shall wait — 

Watch and pray until that moment 

When my soul shall reach the ultimate, 

When the gate shall be opened, 

And our exile ended. 

— C. M. Taylor, VI Sch. 



As he walks along the curb opposite me, I wonder. I 
wonder about what he is thinking, where he is going and 
from where he came. Is he thinking about his younger 
life? I didn't know, no one knows. He just walks along 
in his own world with his peculiar gait. His speed never 
varies and his hands hang still at his sides. His pipe hangs 
listlessly from his teeth as it probably has for the past 
years of his lonely life. His worn shirt is buttoned by one 
lone button. His tattered vest, undone, hangs loosely 
around his feeble and withered body. His scuffed shoes 
without heels have probably been picked off the junk-pile. 

Suddenly this strange man stops and looks to his left 
and there, through his dimmed eyes, he sees a bakery shop. 
He shuffles over to the window to get a better look. His 
eyes have a longing look for the tasty things sitting behind 
a transparent wall keeping them out of his reach. Dis- 
appointedly he shambles down the bleak street. Then he 
perceives a fignire walking towards him; his eyes light up 
as a dignified businessman looms up in front of him. With 
pleading eyes he asks the man for some money. The man 
hesitates and then pushes the little wizened figure aside, 
walks on and disappears out of sight. The little old man's 
eyes water and with a sorrowful face he starts on his 
lonely way with his peculiar gait. He becomes a lone 
figure ambling over the hill, a silhouette against the 
darkening heavens. Where his destination is only He 
knows; He will guide him to his death.

I was standing on the platform of Hently Station, 
waiting for the 10:15 train. It was cold and raining so 
that most folks were inside in the warmth, but the waiting 
room of this station was packed full of the local people 


talking politics, and since I find this a very boring subject, 
I preferred to stand outside alone. 

The station was of the usual sort, found just outside 
of small towns. It was a stone building with large wooden 
beams supporting a roof which partially covered the plat- 
form. Beneath the shelter of this roof, I did not get wet. 
I just got cold. 

Suddenly I heard the muffled whistle of an engme. 
and since it was only 9.55 I knew it couldn't be my train. 
Thirty seconds later a freight swung into view, and then I 
realized that if that engine was going at all, it was going 
at least ninety-five miles per hour. I could see a slight 
swuying motion from side to side which increased as it 
approached. The pistons were working so hard they were 
blurred, the wheels tore around, and the whole train shot 
through and around the next bend and was gone. The 
sound of the engine was dying away when a terrible crash- 
ing and grinding was heard, followed by a deep sigh, then 

By this time I was white. I turned to dash in and 
find the station agent when out he came himself. At the 
sight of me he laughed which rather took me aback. 

"It's all right," he said, "I've seen more than caie per- 
son faint when that freight goes through! That's just 
Tom Henderson. He always gets off to a late start and 
has to dash through here like a shot to keep away from 
the 10:15; but he can drive; everyone trusts Tom." 

"But isn't it rather dangerous?" I asked. "Why, I 
could actually see the engine sway, and at that speed ..." 

The agent chuckled again, 

"As a matter of fact," said he, "that swaying used to 
worry me too, but I asked him about it once and he said 
he didn't notice any I think it's only an optical 
illusion caused by the wind in the trees behind the track 
over there." 


"One more thing," I asked, "What causes the terrible 
Clashing and rumbling after it goes around the far bend 
up there?" 

"Huh?" said he, "I never heard that before . . . . "

My name is Paul Marke. You can probably gueas 
from the tie that I'm an American — rather a colourful 
little object. I follow the not-so-honoured profession of 
psychiatry; I have a modem office in Manhattan and a 
steadily growing practice. Most of my patients are wealthy 
socialities who have nothing particularly wrong with them ; 
just a touch of hypochondria which makes them enjoy 
paying me twenty-five dollars an hour to hear themselves 
talk. Really, my most interesting cases are the men that 
I work with at Sing-Sing Prison. They don't pay me: 
they don't even want my help, and yet these men, who 
have been unable to fit into organized society, are far 
more human than most of my pseudo-neurotic Fifth 
Avenue visitors. Obviously, however, there is something 
wrong with them or they wouldn't be in prison. I have 
run across many terrible, tragic cases — unwanted, mis- 
understood men suffering from the most extreme mental 
disorders; men who are suffering for crimes committed 
for a variety of causes, all stemming from environment. 
Men who often are not guilty of the crime they have been 
committed for. You are interested? Sit down, my friend. 
and let me tell a very interesting story — a story not as 
serious as it sounds, a .story with a twist. It is about con- 
vict AJ36079 — a man who has my respect. He has a good 

"Good morning, doctor." The prisoner spoke with a 
clear-cut New England accent. "Have a chair — the only 
chair, I'm afraid. Not a very good one at that — but I 
shouldn't complain." 


The short laugh contained no hint of mirth. The pale 
rays of the winter sun came down through the small 
window and illuminated the cell. Sitting opposite me on 
the cheap cot sat a good-looking young man. dressed in 
regulation garb. His features were regular and handsome 
—he had the appearance of a college athlete. Only, in 
plac^e of the tan you expected to see, there was an un- 
healthy grayness. 

"I know what you're here for." he said. "You want to 
try to help me. That's what they all say. My lawyer. 
the warden — everybody. I don't want help." 

He sat forward suddenly. 

"Listen, doc." There was a note of desperation in his 
voice. "I shouldn't be here. I haven't done anything — at 
least, I didn't mean to do it. Look, I'll teU you what hap- 
pened. Have to tell someone — someone who doesn't know 
me. You'll understand, won't you? You'll understand?" 

The boy was breathing heavily — moisture was form- 
ing on his forehead. 

There was a pause. Then: 

"To begin with, I'm a graduate of M.I.T. There's 
nothing wrong with my brain, really. I went through for 
automotive engineering, and graduated with honours. I 
had several offers of good jobs and finally I went to Detroit 
to work for a big car company. 

"Exeryone thought that I would do well — so did I. I 
had picked a field that I've always been interested in, and 
I really expected to go places in the business. I reported 
for work at the huge plant. The chief engineer showed 
me to the room where I was to work, and there was the 
little man. 

"What I'm going to tell you, doctor, may seem un- 
believable, but this is what happened. From the moment 
I entered the room I felt something was wrong. It was 
dark outside and a strong wind was blowing, rattling the 
double windows. There were two drawing boards in the 
centre of the small room and over each hung a powerful 


lamp with a big shade. One of the lights was out — the 
one over my desk. The little man stood up from his desk 
and came toward us. He was no more than five feet in 
height, very dark, thin and wiry. The chief introduced 
us — his name was Reynolds. We were to share the room 
and would work together on any projects assigned. The 
little man looked up at me and smiled — he was trying to 
be friendly, and then, doc, I really felt it. I still can't 
explain — it has no reason. A black wave of hate engulfed 
me — hate for this small, dark man — this little engineer 
who was to work with me on 'any projects assigned.' A-t 
that moment I knew a loathing so strong, so imbearable 
that I was in actual physical agony. I felt that I would 
never be able to work, or to live at peace with myself again 
imtil I had killed the little man with my own hands." 

The prisoner stopped for a moment, and lay back on 
the bed. He seemed exhausted. 

"That night in my new rooms, I lay awake for a long 
time reasoning with myself, unable to find any explana- 
tion for my feeling. I became frightened. It was horrible 
— I've always got along well with people, you know, and 
this wave of revulsion I had experienced for the small 
man was beyond my comprehension. Something was hap- 
pening to my mind — was I going mad? What could it 
mean? Eventually, I fell into a restless doze. The face 
of the small man kept appearing before me in nightmare 
fashion. I dreamt I was alone in a huge, dark place — then 
I would hear a steady whistling sound, and from the far 
comer of space would come the dark man. The whistle 
would grow more unbearable as the figure came nearer — 
then it seemed that all I could see were his malignant 
staring eyes amid a crescendo of sound. Suddenly all would 
be quiet and dark — and once more the small figure would 
come from a distance and draw closer, always closer .... 

"Next morning I went back to the plant. The little 
man was there and he wished me a cheery good-morning. 
Why, I thought, what is the trouble? The fellow is per- 


fectly all right. Then, as I feared, the black wave came 
over me again. All I wanted to do was to take his thiii 
neck in ray hands and squeeze the life from his wrigglmg 
body. I sat under my light, staring with unseeing eyes 
at the drawing board, feeling the gorge rise up in my 
throat. My hands gripped the boar, shaking under the 
strength of the clench. Vaguely, I wondered what this 
was all about. I felt the pounding of blood in my head; 
the drawling board began to slide away. My senses seemed 
to reel under some kind of shock and there was a pause 
during which I felt nothing. Unexpectedly, I felt veiy 
happy — a weight had been lifted from my mind. Slowly 
I regained consciousness. I found myself in a prison cell 
— this cell. 

'I knew what had happened and I was glad. The little 
man was dead. For I had killed him and in exchange for 
his death I had peace of mind — and life imprisonment." 

Later I spoke to the warden. As was my habit, 1 
had gone into his cell not knowing what his crime was or 
what his punishment. I find that gives me a freer mind 
when working with prisoners. 

The warden knew the prisoner. What he said con- 
firmed a suspicion of mine. 

"Yes, Doctor, we've had that man Richards in here 
before. I'm afraid he's a drinker — ^we pick him up occasion- 
ally for petty theft. This time he has six months. Used 
to be a writer, or something, I think. Why?" 

"Oh, nothing," I said, "nothing." 


Off THE 



The cups were presented. Fewer and fewer remained 
on the Bethune side. More and more appeared on the 
Brent. That night the Chaplain, whose voice was wavecr- 
ing from his loud afternoon cheering, gave a couple of 
extra prayers for his House. Only one cup remained. 

Brent had battled through odds to take the Littleside 
soccer game, and in a last-minute rally had edged out 
Bethune 5-0. More obvious was the defeat of the Middle- 
side team, a decisive 4-2 in overtime, and the fighting draw 
of the Bigside cohorts 2-2 in overtime. (When did Brent 
get a penalty kick? When Bogue tripped Cox.) It would 
be tedious to relate the other efforts of the Houses. Need- 
less to say, the rugby games were also soft, fought on 
hard ground, the Bigside most noticeably, with dePencier'* 
sparkling umpiring winning a decisive victory over Taylor's 
(lawless head-lining (he wore feathers!), the Middleside 
and Littleside being advertised elsewhere in the Brent 
House advertising colunm. 

But the biggest and the best, the cup which takes the 
most training and the most conditioning for bodily contact, 
has yet to be battled over. On the night of the last rugby 
battle. J. Kramer Einstein Knight called his team together 
to tell them of the tough season they had ahead of them 
and the necessity of always playing hard and playing the 
game. Need I say more. The cup which each Houae 


cherishes most, which each wants to hold longest, THE 
CHESS CUP, over blood, sweat and tears will undoubtedly 
be won by the hardy Bethunites.

One day, in the science laboratory, a science master 
makes an expedition into "the back room" to find some 
equipment. The blinds in the lab have been pulled down 
to make possible an experiment with the rays of light. The 
class awaits with expectation the emergence of the master. 
Then suddenly the electric lights go out. The daily power 
cut-off has begun quite unexpectedly. The lab and "the 
back room" become inky black. And before anyone can 
reach the blinds words of execration issue from the othei 
room. Such language! 

Elsewhere in the classroom building eyes are strained 
as eager minds strive to master the difficulties of Latin 
verbs. The master in charge, himself annoyed by the 
inconvenience, is persuaded to please his pupils by telling 
of similar conditions in the blackout days "over there 
fighting the Jerries". 

"Sorry, fellows, but I didn't bring my Luger pistol 
with me today." 

In the study classrooms a master makes a cursory 
visit to make sure that everyone is working. He tries to 


settle down, feet on desk, to a perusal of the morning news- 
paper, but finds the grey autumn light too poor for a. 
careful study. 

"Can't even work out any new football plays worth a 
hill of beans", he mumbles to himself. 

The bell (operated on batteries) goes off to end the 
period, and into these study classrooms pours another 
group of boisterous students. Then another master bounces 
into the study hall, looks around, commands imperatively, 
"SETTLE DOWN," and takes his desk at one end of the 
room. The power cut-off pleases him immensely, for it 
makes his morning nap more enjoyable. He rouses him- 
self to make one final call before relaxing completely: 

' ' Cease — th e — conversation . ' ' 

Soon classes are over, and the power cut-off, though 
still at work disrupting the public lives of the masters and 
students, will soon be over. Yet as we finally leave the 
classroom block, we may peer into the office beside the 
reading room of the library and see a diligent master 
marking papers by candlelight! 

"Ah," we are tempted to remark, in the words of one 
of our instructors, "ingenuity is a godly trait." 

But we are noticed by this hard-working fellow who 
leaps up and points an accusing finger at us: 

"What are you doing here? And what right have you 
to be here? Hummm? . . . .Gro, scram, beat it, or shall 
I invoke

(with apologies to Will Shakespeare) 
To play, or not to play: that is the question: 
Whether 't is nobler in the mind to suffer 
The blocks and tackles of outrageous opponents 
Or to make tackles against a sea of halfbacks. 



And by opposing beat them? To lose no week-ends: 

No more; and by a loss to say we end 

The charley-horse and the thousand natural shocks 

That flesh is heir to, 't is a consummation 

Devoutly to be wished. To dnve, to charge, 

To charge: perchance to explode: ay, there's the rub; 

For in the rub of analgestone what relief may come 

When we have shuffled off this muddy field. , 

Must give us pause: there's the respect 

That makes calamity of so much practice; 

For who could bear the aches and pains of time 

Prom the middle's block and the end's charge, 

The halfback's plunge and the wingback's reverse, 

The odor of sweaty equipment 

That gruelling practice makes unworthy, 

When he himself might his quietus make 

By merely quitting? Who would bruises bear, 

To grunt and sweat under a heated lamp 

With that dread of something after games 

And the weary work from which there is no let; 

What makes us bear those ills we have? 

Thus thinking does make cowards of us all! 

And thus the native hue of resolution, 

And enterprises of great pitch and moment 

Doth make us play in name of action, 

And for T.C.S. (?) 

—P. B. Wilson, VI B 





As the eddies of snow swirl about the gridiron, we 
come to the end of yet another rugby season. Each year 
the game becomes a little more advanced in its technique, 
a little more precisioned. Each year the Trinity squad 
rolls along, but we never seem to progress any farther 
than "game little guys" or "the score didn't indicate the 
play." Why have we had only three Little Big Four foot- 
ball championship teams, and but one in the last three 
decades? We have had excellent coaches, good talent, and 
good spirit, at most times. Then, what is it? One main 
reason, I believe, is that the boys here, usually graduate 
a year before the average. This allows them only one 
year on Bigside. Of course, there are exceptions. Now, 
someone may say, "didn't they play football as they rose 
through the School?" The answer is yes. But the type 
of football played on the first team is vastly different from 
that played on other sides. One has to have an acute 
knowledge of all the details, whereas below Bigside the 
game is played under a general, hazy impression. There- 
fore to get a championship team, I believe that we need 
more serious and skilful coaching. Now, one thing alone 
enters my mind. It is one thousand per cent better to 
progress as we are with what we have, than to give athletic 
.scholarships, have special early training periods, use pro- 
fessional coaches and the like. The sooner that other 
similar institutions see this, the better it will be, not only 
for the sport's scene, but also for the development of boys 
with strong moral characters.

The first football team kept us all on our toes through- 
out a disastrous exhibition schedule. Not until the Ridley 
game did their runners move with their blockers, their 
tacklers hit hard, their line hold their blocks and charge. 
In other words our chance of putting on a good show in 
league competition was very poor. However, Mr. Hod- 
getts' fine coaching, and the squad's eagerness to learn, 
finally paid off. as they distinguished themselves in their 
final three games. It takes a lot of guts for a team to 
come through in this way, and even more when one takes 
into consideration they were not always well supported by 
the School. I would term it a very' good season, for one 
must remember that results mean little except figures. 

As usual the injury blight hit again this year. Nige 
Thompson and Bob Timmins were hurt in the Old Boys' 
game and were retired until the S.A.C. encounter. Graeme 
Huycke was out for the last two Little Big Four games, 
and Mike Dignam for the last one. On the statistical side, 
in league competition, the team scored forty-seven points 
to their opponents' fifty-eight. These included eight touch- 
downs and three converts, in fact only 42 ^V of all the 
majors scored were converted. However, if one looked 
at the yards gained, one can see that in all games the 
School was never out-played by a wide margin, and in most 
cases we were superior statistically, although not on the 

Let us take a very brief look at the players. "Bugs" 
Stratford, team captain, was undoubtedly one of the finest 
linemen the School has ever seen. His stellar play at centre 
secondary, and his continual spirit made him a stand-out 
on the field at all times. A slow but determined backfield 
was spearheaded by Lawson's plunging. Wood's running 
and kicking, Hughes' passing, and the field-generalship of 
"Tiny" Thompson. The most underestimated part of any 
team, the line, came to the fore this year. They progressed 
rapidly throughout the season into a hard charging, and 
hard blocking unit. Stratford, Maclaren, Austin, Scowen 


and Gilley were the anchor men. Greenwood and Mofiitt 
were two excellent outsides. A lot of these fellows should 
be coming back, .... maybe, next year! 

Coming events include the annual boxing tournament, 
which was not held last year because of the basketball 
playoffs. In order to eliminate any such recurrence, the 
tournament is being held at the end of November. The 
Invitation Squash Tournament, in which the leading 
players in Canada compete, will be held on the 27th and 
28th of November. The New Boys' gym. competition will 
take place early in December. Congratulations are in store 
for the Footballers, Soccerists, Oxford Cuppers and Scott- 



In their three final exhibition games before the Little 
Big Four, Bigside was only able to salvage one. This was 
an easy 29-1 victory over Malvern Collegiate Seniors. 
Pickering won by 10-7, and Peterborough Collegiate and 
Vocational Institute by 32-1. 

Their second game of the season saw the first team 
edged 10-7 by Pickering. This was the first time that 
Pickering has defeated the School since football matches 
were inaugurated between the two schools. The first three 
quarters were even, but the homesters had a decided edge 
in the final stanza. The School got off to an early lead 
when MUler plunged over for a major, which Wood con- 
verted. The only other point the team was able to pick 
up, on the dusty, dried-out field, was a rouge on a place- 
ment kick that went astray late in the third quarter. 
Sunmer, who booted a single and a placement in the second 
frame, salted the game away, romping over from the twenty 
yard line. The squad showed a marked improvement over 
their last game, but lacked the polish and stay of a good 


The first victory of the year was registered on a ram- 
sodden grid, when Bigside rolled over Malvern. T.S.S.A.A. 
semi-finalists, 29-1. Scoring six points in each quarter, 
the team had a 12-0 edge at the half. Although two of 
our majors came on Malvern fumbles, the team showed 
considerable improvement in all categories of play. Within 
a minute of the opening whistle, Lawson lugged the ball 
into pay-dirt. Stratford and Thompson iii recovered 
fumbles for touches in the second and third quarters 
respectively. John Wood scored the final major, as well 
as converting three scores, booting two singles and a field - 

In their final exhibition tilt the first team fell prey 
32-1 to P.C.V.I., C.O.S.S.A. finalists. The Petes con- 
sistently ripped through the line for long gains, as their 
fast backs outran the secondary time and again. In fact 
all but two of their touches were countered on runs of over 
twenty-five yards. The visitors led 10-0 at half time on a 
twenty-five yard plunge by Graham, and a forty yard pass 
from Graham to Green who romped over. Amid a down- 
pour of rain, the School scored its only point when Hughes 
kicked a single m the third quarter. A few minutes later 
Peterborough started on a twenty-two point scoring spree, 
when Thompson lugged the ball sixty yards through centre 
and raced to the goal-line. Other scores came when Green 
intercepted a pass on his own twenty and ran for an un- 
converted major. Two other touches, one of which was 
converted, rounded out the scoring as Bigside hardly 
touched the ball in the final quarter. 

Stratford, Wood, Lawson and Scowen showed con- 
sistent good form in all these games. 


Lost 17-1 

On a cleat-clinging campus, two jet-propelled, weli- 
conditioned and overabundant teams of Old Boys, gave 
the School squad a thorough licking. However joyful 
the game appeared, it had its bad influences. Bob Tim- 
mins' nose was fractured, and Nige Thompson received 
about the worst kind of charley-horse one can get. Both 
these valuable men were out for the Ridley and U.C.C. 

After delaying the contest for some forty-five minutes, 
the "sons of Trinity" straggled onto the field amid the 
gentle patter of rain, and a few well-intoned cat-calls. 
Lining up with many college players, minus Varsity stars 
Ed. Huycke and Archie Jones, the "aged chaps" kicked- 
off . From then on the old look took over as the new look 
grew longer. 

In the first quarter "Rowdy-dow" Lawson, stellar U. 
of T. intermediate, plunged over for a major. The con- 
vert failed. A few minutes later Buck Rogers, last yeai-'s 
triple threat man, tossed a pass to Rick Gaunt, '47-'48 
hard-driving head-prefect, who had snuck out to the side- 
lines, then the dolt stepped over the touch line. After a 
five minute huddle, the ball was snapped. Rogers fanned 
the placement while Bob Jarvis scooted around the end 
for the extra point, with the ball. 

The School now realized the situation was grim. The 
attack opened up. They drove down the field, flying over 
the yards. They scored! Deverall booted a single. This 
was the School's last bid for fame, as the Old Boys salted 
the game away when Stu Bruce, last year's captain, 
scored after a series of plunges. Rogers finally convertf?d. 
thus leaving the score at 17-1 as the final whistle sounded. 

Old Boys:- -Armstrong (referee); Lawson, Brewer, Gaunt, 
Hyde, Bruce, Hall, Rogers, Alley, Rickaby, Mclntyre, Decker, Cox.

T.C.S. vs. B.R.C. 
Lost 29-21 

Before some 2,500 people in a cool, damp Varsity 
Stadium, Ridley and T.C.S. opened the 1948 Little Big 
Pour schedule. With both teams disdaining to use the 
huddle, the large gathering saw a wide-open football game. 

The first half was disastrous for the School squad, as 
B.R.C. capitalized on fumbles and intercepted passes to 
rol] up a 23-5 lead, which was never overcome. The 
"orange and black" team received, and rolled to an uncon- 
verted major in seven plays. Thompson swept wide around 
right end for the score. Trinity then nearly duplicated 
the feat, but a fumble deep in Ridley territory proved very 
costly. On their first play the St. Catharines' squad opened 
a large hole, enabling Thompson to rip through centre, 
evade three tacklers and roar to the School's twenty-five 
yard line where he was finally pulled down. Then R. Court 
charged the remaining yardage for five points, which D. 
Court converted. 

The second quarter saw Ridley run the ends success- 
fully, with Alexander going over from the one yard line. 
The School finally came to life with an aerial attack which 
paid off with a major as Hughes tossed a strike over the 
goal line into the waiting arms of Greenwood. After an 
exchange of kicks, Bigside again started an aerial attack 
as the first half ran out. On the last play Barager inter- 
cepted a forward and scampered for a score, which D. 
Court converted. 

In the second half, the plunging of Lawson and the 
running of Wood took the School to the Ridley twenty-five 
yard line, but an incompleted third down pass over the 
goal line gave them possession. On the very next play 
Alexander found a hole in the line, broke through the 
secondary, and outran the whole Trinity squad to go 
eighty-five yards for Ridley's final major, which Court 
again converted. From then on the team completely out- 
played B.R.C. as the line tightened up and the blockers 
found their feet. 


Moffitt led the way, dribbling a Ridley fumble to the 
five yard line from where Lawson plunged through the 
centre for our second touchdown. After the kick-off Ful- 
lerton ran for a large gain around the end, and Lawson 
scored again from twenty yards out. Wood converted. 
The School trailed by 29-16 at the three-quarter mark. 

Bigside again dominated the play, as they scored two 
touches, one which was nullified, in the final stanza. The 
Hughes-Greenwood combination worked once more for our 
final five points. Moffitt again regained a Ridley fumble, 
behind their line, but a penalty erased the score. The team 
played their hearts out, but were unable to tally again. 

Ridley: -Snap, C. W. Lindsay; Insides, W. D. Court, T. J. 
Nichols; Middles, R. G. Fennell, J. W. Thompson; Outsides, W. H. 
Fennell, E. T. Dyba; Quarter, R. P. Court; Flying Wing, B. L.

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
Lost 24-1 

Losing their second Little Big Four contest, the team 
bowed to a power-laden U.C.C. squad. The College had 
lost only one of last year's Championship team, and out- 
weighed our boys by a thirty pound average. But they 
were only able to advance inside the School's fifteen yard 
line once, their scores and long gains being mostly through 
the air. 

Bigside's first two plays from scrimimage, after the 
kick-off, were fumbled. U.C.C. recovered the second, and 
on the next play Croucher crashed over from the five 
yard line, Andison converting. From then on it was a 
see-saw battle on the ground, but the Trinity pass defence 
was lacking, as nearly all "blue and white" passes were 
completed. Wood roimded out the first period kicking our 
only point, after a fifty yard drive took the team to the 
U.C.C. twenty-five. 


The second quarter saw the only two homester i>asses 
converted into talUes. Bazos flipped one to Ball who 
romped fifty-five yards down the sidelines for the major, 
which was converted. Another School attack was halted 
deep in U.C.C. territory', when a pass interception was run 
back to the team's twenty yard stripe. From there Bazos 
passed to Fletcher for the score. The convert was blocked. 

Some two thousand spectators saw a scoreless third 
stanza, as Trinity fought desperately to gain a major 
score. The School outplayed U.C.C. on the ground by a 
large margin, and the total yards gained gave the College 
only a slight edge. Again the pass paid off when Ball 
tossed a long one to Young behind the line. Andison con- 
verted, and later booted a single to end the day's scoring. 

The team, as in the Ridley game, showed extremely 
well. Their continual drive and spirit won them the 
respect of all. Stratford played an exceptionally fine game 
at centre secondary. 

U.C.C.:— M. E. Cork, A. J. Doherty, N. M. Croucher, D. C.

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
Won 25-5 

On the usual dull day that seems to accompany all 
Bigside's games, the first team defeated Saint Andrew's 
handily, 25-5. This was the School's lone victory in Little 
Big Four play, and only their second in seasonal competi- 
tion. The team was never in trouble, as they kept the 
"Saints" hemmed in their end for most of the game. 

On receiving the kick-off, Bigside drove ninety yards 
for a touchdown. Wood skirted the end, to score standing 
up. The convert attempt went wide. This was the only 
major score until the fourth quarter. However, the School 


was continually in scoring position, but was stymied iu it« 
touchdown efforts. Wood booted singles in each of the 
first two stanzas, with Greenwood and Moffitt rouging 
the S.A.C. receiver on both occasions, thus leaving ue 
with a 7-0 lead at half time. 

The third quarter told the same story as the lirst 
half, the only point coming on a towering fifty yard hoist 
by Wood which rolled to the deadline. The final fifteen 
minutes saw a rush of scoring as the Bigside squad rolled 
for three touches. Spearheaded by the spectacular plung- 
ing of Lawson, behind excellent blocking, the team steam- 
rolled sixty yards for six points, Lawson scoring and Wood 

One play after the kick-off Scowen recovered an 
S.A.C. fumble, and then Miller hit Bate with a thirty-five 
yard pass to set the stage for Wilson's tally. Wood con- 
verted. Three plays after receiving the kick-off, Wilson 
counted again, scampering twenty yards around the end. 
S.A.C. finally came to life, putting on a belated drive in the 
dying minutes. This was capped by a major when Lawrence 
plunged over. The convert was blocked by a wave of 
"maroon and black", as Mr. Hodgetts put on the first Une 
to finish the game. 

Greenwood and Moffitt played strong tackling games, 
while Stratford, Lawson, and Wood shone for the School. 
Lawrence and Laing were best for a somewhat disorganized 
S.A.C. squad. 

S.A.C. Line-up: Snap, Currie; Insides, Sedgwick, Wright; 
Middles, McKinley, J. Crandall; Outsides, Murrell, Lewis; quarter, 
Lawrence (capt.); Halves, Laing, Franceshini, Wilson; Flying 
Wing, Taylor; Alternates, Wansborough, Bell, Dinsmore, D. Cran- 
dall. Crosbie, Hunt, Sutton, O'Reilly.

nam; quarter, H. Thompson; snap, Stratford; insides,

wood. Moffitt; alternates: halves, N. Thompson, Hughes.

Middleside was combined into one team this year, in- 
stead of the usual two. This was captained by Maier. 
vice-captain Ashton. and coached ably by Messrs. Arm- 
strong and Key. The team was entered into the C.O.S.S.A. 
league, and in addition played nine exhibition games. 

The School opened strongly taking a practice game 
from the Port Hope league team 20-0. The first league 
game of the season, against Oshawa, was taken by the 
School 26-23 in a close match marred by fumbles. Ashton 
led an impressive ground attack which was aided by fine 
line blocking. 

The team suffered its first setback of the season at 
the hands of a heavier Lakefield first team, by the score 
of 10-5. They bounced back, however, to win a thrilling 
game from Malvern 13-10, and then rolled to a 37-0 win 
at the expense of Port Hope. 

U.C.C. was the first team to hold the School scoreless, 
as they smashed to a 22-0 victory. It is to the team's 
credit that in the following two games, returns against 
Lakefield and U.C.C, they held them to a one point lead, 
losing 12-11 and 1-0 respectively. This was typical of the 
spirit which prevailed throughout the season. 

An unexpected victory came when the seconds re- 
fused to believe U.T.S. press clippings, and defeated their 
opponents 11-6 after being behind for most of the first 
half. The game seemed to weaken the strength of the 
team, and the School slumped to a 39-0 defeat by Oshawa. 
The team was surprised by the Oshawa aerial attack which 
scored two quick touchdowns. This loss left T.C.S. in a 
first place tie with Oshawa, but it was decided not to play 


off because of the heavy schedule. Oshawa thus won by 

Three more exhibition games were played, the 'thirds" 
losing to U.C.C. 1-0 and returning to trounce the Port 
Hope Intermediates. The School defeated S.A.C. 11-8 by 
a hard tackling and smashing attack. 

The final analysis will show that the School won 
seven, tied none, and lost five. But the story is not fully 
told. At the start of the season the School had a very 
impressive line-up. Thej^ were deep in substituting strength. 
But injuries crippled the squad. McDerment, a very tricky 
broken field runner, fractured his leg. Maier, captain and 
quarterback, was forced to the sidelines with a nose in- 
jury, while Bruce and Gilmour were temporarily benched 
because of other injuries. Despite all these unfortunate 
accidents the School came through with a record any team 
would be proud to have. 

To pick the season's stars would be hard as the whole 
team played well. Ashton will long be remembered for his 
smashing bucks, and McDerment for his end sweeps. Maier 
was a steady performer at quarter, while Harris i, Luxton. 
and Heard led a hard charging line. 

Middlesklc Line-ip: Maier leapt.), Ashton (vice-capt.), Lick, 
Pierce, Thompson iv, Bruce, Bird, Harris i, Lewis, Luxton, Rawlin 
son, Drynan, Cleland, Wilson ii. Smith ii, Gilmour, Pepler, Tench. 
.Southam, McDerment, Gordon, Burdock, Brodeur, Heard. 
Howard, Dennys, Deadman, van Straubenzee, Woods i. Manning, 
Hinder, Emery i. 


This year Mr. Hass again took over the coaching 
duties of Littleside football. He turned out a team that, 
although not having a good batting average, always 
showed promising form and plenty of clean fight. 

Ketchum was elected captain for the season, and 
Wright, who also played quarterback, vice-captain. The 
"fifths" had a short season, playing only six games, two 
of which they won. 


The squad started very well winning two games from 
Lakefield by scores of 13-7 and 8-7. In the first gamt 
Brierley countered the two touchdowns for our team, while 
in the second Kennedy scored our only major. In both 
these games the team displayed good general ability. 

Then Littleside played a heavier and more experienced 
U.T.S. team and suffered a 30-0 drubbing. 

The following two games against U.C.C. were lost 
21-10, with Brierley getting both touches, and 15-6. with 
Wright scoring our touch and also converting it. 

In the final game of the season, Littleside played a 
big "red-and- white" team from S.A.C. The School started 
well, keeping the ball in S.A.C. territory for the first quar- 
ter, allowing Gill to sweep wide around the tend for a 
touch. However, the visitors came from behind managing 
finally to win 15-10. Martin scored our other major. 

Brierley was a standout for the team this year, 
garnering four touchdowns, but this display did not over- 
shadow the great work of Ketchum, Wright, and Mimtz 
in the backfield. or Martin and Humphreys in the line. 

Littleside Line-up: — Quarter, Ketchum (capt.); Halves, Brier- 
ley, Muntz, Timmins; Wing-back, Gill; Snap, Woods ii; Insides. 
Arklay, Dodge; Middles, Martin ii, Watts; Outsides, Humphreys, 
MacGregor ii; Alternates, Wright ( vice-capt.); Osier, Emery. 
Seagram, Bonnycastle, Day, Levey, Symons, Walrath, Mitchell, 
Kennedy, Clark, Phillips, VandenBergh. 


This squad was composed of the boys who were not 
heavy enough to make Littleside. Under the coaching of 
dePencier, the team split two games with Lakefield. as 
well as playing many practice matches with the J.S. 

Although featuring only three substitutes, all in the 
line, the squad displayed amazingly good form. Their first 
game, lost to Lakefield 23-17. was a very closely contested 
affair. The Grove led 23-5 at half-time. However, on 
their home ground, they redeemed themselves as they 


trounced the Lakefielders 17-5. The large crowd will not 
soon forget Molson's two touchdown efforts and vicious 
tackling, nor Hylton pushing the ball over the line to score 
sitting down! Well done, gang. 

Line-up:— Quarter, Hylton (capt.); halves, Molson (vice-capt), 
LeVan, Fitzgerald; flying wing, McCaughey; snap, Hunt; insides, 
Denny, Reford; middles, Taylor ii, Rodgers ii; outsides, Strathy, 
Christie; Alternates, McCullagh, Hendrie, Meredith. 


In spite of the fact that the number of Bermudian and 
English soccer players has rapidly declined in the School 
since the war, soccer has kept up its fine reputation, started 
when the game was established here in the early '40's. It 
has settled dowTi as part of the School life, and we certainly 
hope that it is here to stay. This year the team showed 
better form than usual, winning four games and losing 
only two. It also walked away with the traditional 
masters' game. 

Bogue i was elected Captain early in the season and 
certainly carried out his responsibilities very well. Al- 
though not a dazzling player, he was always steady and 
thoroughly reliable in his defence position. Cooper i was 
elected vice-captain and along with his brother was one 
of the top scorers and top performers on the team. Pater- 
son ii, in goal, (to keep his humor (?) as far away from 
the rest of the team as possible) played very well through- 
out the season, and picked up three shut-outs in the last 
three games. 

Rogers, one of the few old colours, this year continued 
to play a very steady half position. Some of the new 
members of the squad such as Bovey, Butterfield i and ii. 
Croll, Graham and Ross i proved to be valuable additions 
to the team, and played very well throughout the season. 

For the first time matches were arranged with R.M.C. 
as well as the home and home games with U.C.C. and 
Pickering. The first game of the season was against R.M.C. 


at Kingston which was lost 2-1. After a half-time draw 
the Cadets scored two quick goals and Trinity was only 
able to retaliate once, on a penalty shot by Cooper i. In 
the return game the School edged out R.M.C. 2-0, who had 
been "rattled up" from Kingston in an army truck. These 
were the first matches with R.M.C. and we are looking for- 
ward to many more. 

The following game against U.C.C. was lost 3-1. After 
a 1-1 half-time tie, the Toronto squad scored two quick 
goals to sew up the game. However, the return game 
proved to be somewhat different with an improved Trinity 
squad beating U.C.C. for the first time in several years 2-0, 
with only ten men on the field for the first half. 

The next game on the schedule was at home against 
Pickering. The opposition couldn't seem to get going as 
they scored only one goal, while Cooper i scored four and 
Qiitty two for Trinity. 

The final match of the season, against Pickering, was 
again won, this time by a score of 4-0. Although up 
against a much improved team, the Cooper brothers could 
not be stopped, and scored two goals each to give the team 
their fourth win and Paterson ii his third shut-out. . 

Not to be overlooked is the yearly encounter with the 
masters, sportingly called the "masters' game". This year 
as usual the masters sallied forth from the Common room 
accompanied by clouds of smoke. They never seemed to 
be able to get rid of this "smog" and consequently were 
trounced 5-1. 

On the whole, the season was a successful one, and as 
long as we have a coach like Mr. Bagley, and eleven in- 
terested players, we shall continue to have a top-notch 



For many years Middleside Soccer has been a team 
which goes out to give Bigside some practice, and plays 
about two games a year. But this year's team was far 
superior to such a practice team, and in several practices 
managed to beat the Bigside boys. In their annual games 
with U.C.C. they won handily 5-0 in Toronto, and 2-1 at 
Port Hope. Cooke, Carroll and Church with an average 
of a goal a game were always dangerous, and Black, the 
captain, played well in goal. Other scorers during the 
season were Gundy and Bovey, the latter moving up to 
Bigside after the first game. 

With these boys continually improving, and many of 
this year's team returning, Mr. Bagley should look forward 
to a very successful season for his first team next year. 

The team was made up of the following: Goal, Black 
(capt.), Defence, Hogarth, Bums; Halves, Aitken, Bovey, 
Butterfield i, Bogue ii; Forwards, Church, Cooke, New- 
corab, Carroll, Gundy. 


Littleside soccer had a very enjoyable season this year 
under the capable instruction of Mr. Dening even though 
Lakefield defeated them 2-0 in the one game they played. 
Several members of the team showed promise of becoming 
expert soccerites among whom were Pitt, Morse and 

Line-up: — Goal, Savage; Defence, Brinckman, Wool- 
ley; Halves, Hughes, Domville, Gilham; Forwards, Pitt 
(captain), Morse (vice-captain), Winspear, Williams, Wild- 
ing; Subs: Armstrong, Mclnnis, Roe, Fisken, Oman, Dolph. 



In six House games contested this year, three in each 
of football and soccer, Brent House swept five and tied 
one, in which they retained the cup. All but two of the 
games were extremely close, and all were played hard and 

The Bigside football game was much closer than had 
been anticipated. Bethune House, bolstered by four Mid- 
dlesiders. came within an ace of upsetting Brent. The 
final score was 6-5, but the play was listless. Thompson 
iii, carrying most of the Brent team on his shoulders, 
crossed the line for the winners' only touch. He was Brent's 
outstanding player. A MUler-to-Wilson convert pass proved 
to be the winning tally. Austin, the best man on the field, 
scored the losers' unconverted major. 

The Bigside soccer game was played to a 2-2 stale- 
mate, after two ten minute overtime periods. However, 
Brent retained the cup which they won last year. Chitty 
and Cox were the best players on the field. Brent won 
the Middleside match 4-2, rapping in two quick goals in 
overtime. Mr. Scott's House also garnered the Littleside 
title by a convincing 5-0 verdict. 

Another close contest was Brent's 7-6 victory in 
Middleside football. However, they had an easy time in 
the Littleside game, winning 25-0. 

Football Team, Brent: — Stratford, Thompson i, Thompson iii, 
Lawson, Miller, Moffitt, Maclaren, Scowen, Deverall, McGill 
Fullerton, Byers, Selby, Stirlmg, Little. 

Football Team, Bethune: — Austin, Wood, Gilley, Greenwood,

This year's race was held on a damp, cool afternoon. 
Although the fields were slippery, a fairly good time was 
registered by Martin, the winner, who took twenty-five 
minutes to cover the course of 4.2 miles, — courtesy of Mr. 

Taylor i led for the first two miles, but Martin passed 
him and was never headed. He finished a good hundred 
yards in front of his closest contestants. Stratford, who 
took third place, staged a thrilling rally, but was not quite 
able to beat Taylor. Deverall and Ross i rounded out the 
first five. Other runners, in order, were Robarts, Bar- 
row, Manning, Doheny, Chester. 

The Cup is awarded to the House having the fewest 
number of points, with one point for first place, two for 
second, and so on. Bethune retained the Cup for the second 
year in a row, defeating Brent 22 to 33.

The Kicking and Catching; Cup 

The Orchard Cup for kicking, catching, and passing 
i» awarded annually to the boy who is judged by points, 
to be the best in these three fields. This year's competi- 
tion was won by Lawson. Fullerton, Hughes i and Wood 
came next in order. 

The Kerr Trophy 

The Kerr Trophy for the most valuable player on Big- 
side football, was awarded to Stratford by a closed ballot 
of the First Team. Stratford not only captained the team, 
but also played exceptionally well in all games. 

Advise* Soccer 

Mr. Scott's Unearthly Urchins won their first Advisee 
Soccer Championship, v/ith a decisive 3-0 victory over Mr. 
Hodgetts' Hairy Hodgetti. The tilt was played before 
some thirty rabid fans on a sloppy grid. 

The Urchins advanced into the finals of the knock-out 
competition, edging Mr. Bagley's Crusaders 2-1, while the 
heavenly Hodgetti slaughtered Mr. Key's Artful Dodgers 
6-2. Mrs. Duggan has very kindly donated silver cups to 
the victors. 

New Boys* Gym. Competition 

Levey won the second leg of the Magee Cup competi- 
tion, the Gym. contest, with a perfect score. However, as 
he is over age, Martin garnered the ten points for coming 
second. Other point scorers were Wright with seven. 
Robertson, Muntz and Clark with five, three, and one 
respectively. The other contest, the boxing competition, 
will be held in the very near future.

As we go to press the air is full of the shadows (li 
"things to come". Rehearsals are getting underway for 
the Junior School Christmas Entertainment, Mr. Ann- 
strong is putting the final polish on his boxers and there 
are always the Christmas Examinations. 

Once again, our very sincere thanks to Mr. Jackraan 
for his generous gift to our Library Fund. It is much 
appreciated and we can assure him that it will be put to 
good use. 

Our thanks also to Upper Canada Prep for lending 
us a field and changing room facilities for our football 
game with Ridley. 

The Hallowe'en Party went off well and there was the 
usual array of excellent and original costumes. 

It was a great pleasure for us to entertain a junior 
i-ugby team from U.T.S. This is the first time that the 
J.S. has played against this school and we hope that it 
may be the beginning of a very pleasant connection In 

The Soccer League games are well under way and all 
the teams seem to be very evenly matched. 

We enjoyed a very happy relationship with Littleside 
B in football this year thanks to the able management of 
their coach, dePencier. Our practices with them were a 
great help to us and we hope that we were able to be of 
some assistance to them. The outcome of our only game 
with them was 16- 16 — an ideal ending to the season!

Thomas Carmichael Montmorency was not a good boy. 
There was not much about Tommy that anyone could rely 
upon except for the fact that he was always bad. He was 
always being punished for it and was sent to bed without 
his supper regularly. One would gather from this that 
he would be underfed, but this was not the case. Tommy 
was the best-fed member- of the family for the simple 
reason that he stuffed himself at breakfast and dinner and 
did not refrain from stuffing himself the rest of the time. 

On this particular evening Tommy had been sent to 
bed early as usual and was lying on his bed idly pulling 
the plaster off the wall. Suddenly the window was opened 
and in stepped a ferocious-looking elf. Now to most people, 
it would be rather a shock to have an elf fly in their 
window but Tommy merely started throwing Teddy bears, 
blocks and other objects at the visitor. After a few for- 
midable missiles had hit him in the eye, the elf got slightly 
peeved and, picking up Tonmiy, kicking and screaming 
with rage, he flew out the window. He must have been 
a very strong elf to do this, but I expect it was rather an 
unusual elf anyway considering the fact that he was in 
Santa Glaus' pay. 

Tommy soon forgot his anger and began to feel air- 
sick. He told the elf as much and added that if he wajs 
not put down, he would tell his father, who was a big 
policeman with an equally big gun, and great would be the 
fall of the afore-mentioned elf. But the transportation 
committee knew that Tommy's father was a rather timid 
ckrk in a drug store and did not take much notice. 


Soon they reached the North Pole and landed near 
Santa Claus' house. That venerable person gave Tommy 
a long lecture on the appalling magnitude of his sins. He 
went on to say tliat if Tommy did not refrain from being 
generally disagreeable, there would be nothing in his stock- 
ing on Christmas morning! After that, Tommy was sent 
home again with the elf who was very relieved to say 
good-bye to him. 

Of course, most boys would have learned a lesson 
from all this but Tommy carried on the same as before and 
did not even bother hanging up his stocking because Santa 
Claus would probably have just put in a bill for profes- 
sional advice anyway. Most people are sure that Tommy 
will end up in the reform school.

The thick white snow, 
lying peacefully, 
sleeps o'er roads and streets, 
covers man's handiwork, 
and leaves true nature 
undefiled and pure. 

Last night 

we v/ere asleep; 

but while we dreamt, 

New Year, 

light and peaceful 

as these fluffy flakes, 

floated softly to the ground, 

and cover'd all our memories 

with snow. 
We enter life afresh, 
old thoughts forgotten, 
hidden beneath that glistening blanket. 

Happy children come out 


aiid play in the snow, 

all former griefs vanished 

in their joy. 

People walk up and down the streets; 

bells ring; 

and the snow 

looks up at the sky,

The new day awoke, bringing with it a stiff breeze 
which sent the surface of the open lake into whitecap after 
whitecap. In spite of the sun, the wind made it cold and 
I put on a heavy sweater as I went out to try to pass my 
sailing test. 

I raised the sail of the small sloop and got out suc- 
cessfully but here the trouble set in, for although I was 
protected by a breakwater, the wind was still strong. 
Conscious of the instructor watching critically from the 
dock, I ran free down the lake for a hundred yards, then 
came about and tacked close-hauled back. Several times, 
however, I had to luff through a squall to avoid examining 
the imier recesses of Dav>' Jones' Locker. 

Despite the fact that I had only been out sailing 
alone a couple of times, I began to feel confident. Faintly 
above the rushing wind I heard the instructor's voice 
ordering me to do a landing. 

Remembering that to make a landing you must head 
into the wind, I decided to run free until I was alongside 
the dock, then turn up. Running free, it seemed that the 
dock was retreating instead of advancing, but finally I 
reached the crucial point. I shoved the tiller away and we 
swung up. Both mainsail and jib luffed wildly, the boom 
njshing back and forth over my head. To my horror, 
however, the boat didn't stop, but charged onwards into 


the dock. My heart filled with terror. I pulled the boat 
back on its original course parallel with the dock. I felt 
her surge forward as the sails refilled and watched us tear 
down upon a large, heavy rowboat, moored fore and ait. 
Waiting for the shock, I closed my eyes tightly. It came 
— a loud, splintering crash. For an instant all was silent, 
then loud curses came from nearby. Noticing that the 
aioop seemed strangely still, I opened my eyes. The row- 
boat had held! My ship was still straining to move on 
but was checked by the smashed, motionless punt. As I 
sat still wondering what to do, the instructor jumped in 
and landed the boat. Needless to say, I didn't pass my 

sailing test.

Up the little party climbed. 
With only one sole thought in mind, 
To reach the top of that dread place, 
Dogshead ! 

Through thick forestland they staggered, 
On they pushed till weak and haggard, 
They neared the top of that awesome place. 
Dogshead ! 

Suddenly there came a fearful rumbling! 
Trees around them fell crashing and crumbling, 
The little group had almost come to. 
Dogshead ! 

Then at last they reached the top, 

At last they were able to call a stop. 

The FLEAS had reached their destination. 

The Dog's head! !

One night we were at the club in Manila, where I lived 
then. After a while some Japs came in. They said they 
would give us twenty minutes to pack all our stuff, then 
they would take us away in cars to a prison camp. Of 
course we did not get all our stuff packed, we lost most 
of our silverware. Then they put us in the cars. They 
did not know the way to the prison camp so we had to 
show them. Most people ask me, why did you show them 
the way. Well, the reason is. there would be a lot of other 
Japs and they would most likely kill the three of us, my 
mother, father and myself. 

When they got us to the camp, they made us work to 
build a shanty to live in. There were many other people 
in with us. My father and other men helped each other 
to build shanties. The food was not too good, we had rice 
every meal except breakfast. We had to miss a meal 
about every two weeks. 

There was a building in the middle of the camp. It 
was called the Education Building and the Japs' head- 
quarters and the camp hospital. To get our food we had 
to go from our shanty to the back of the Education Build- 
ing. We got it in tins and took it back to the shanty. We 
had a drill at the front of the Education Building every 
night. We had to have mosquito nets at night because 
there were very many mosquitoes. We were in the prison 
camp three years and two months. 

I will never forget the day the American soldiers came 
in. The part my Mother thinks funny is when I went to 
the shower-house to have a shower. I heard the other 
men say, "the soldiers are in", so I forgot the place. I ran 
home and told my mother and father. The next day at 
six o'clock at night about ten planes came over. They 
circled very low. They dropped notes. I think they said, 
"We are sorry we did not come sooner, but we will come 


At about nine-thirty that night they said the tanks 
were at the main gate. We had to go to the Education 
Building because it was not safe in our shanties. On the 
way there we passed about twelve Jap trucks on the road 
lined up. When I got there, I was put to bed. I did not 
sleep at all that night, I kept getting m and out of bed. A.11 
the gix)wn-ups were out in the hall talking. My mother 
called me out and showed me the first American soldier I 
ever saw. 

The fighting kept on for about four days. There 
was a building where all the boys slept and the Japs hid 
amongst the boys so if the Japs were killed, the boys 
would be too. The American soldiers said they would let 
them go to their headquarters if they would not fight and 
take their guns and ammunition. They did that but when 
they marched them out of the camp, American guerillas 
shot and killed them. 

In two more days it was over but they kept machine- 
guns around them and they also carried tommy-guns with 
them. They gave us pieces of gum all the time. They 
also gave each person in the family a big box of food. One 
and a half months later, at midnight, they put us on big 
army trucks and took us down to the ocean. By that time 
it was morning. We got onto a barge which took us out 
till we met an ocean-liner. We got on it out at sea and It 
took us to England. 

— J. Jamieson, Form I. 

1548 A.D. 

At six-thirty the bell atop the school tower began to 
clang, summoning the boys to the morning service in the 
bam which served for a chapel at that time. This bam 
also served for an armoury and held pikes, cutlasses, and 
other implements of war. In the basement was the place 
where all the gunpowder was kept. Kegs of powder com- 
pletely filled the large room. The boys of T.C.S. were 


continually trained to protect their shores against Enghsh 

Classes were held in the morning when the sons of 
noblemen were taught some of the three "R's". In the 
tiftemoon, however, more energetic sports and classes 
were held, such as tilting, fencing, archery and others. 

Once a week there was detention. The thumbscrew 
was applied to people with quarters. Woe to any boy who 
had over twelve quarters, for he was immediately thrown 
on the rack and left there until supper. 

At night the boys slept on straw mattresses with one 
coarse blanket over them. A number of boys slept in the 
straw in the loft of the bam. These suffered considerably 
frx>m fleas in the spring, and frostbite in the winter.

It was a cloudy day. I was very nervous and excited. 
ThJB was the day I was going home. To add to my excite- 
ment was the fact that I was going by plane. I had never 
travelled by plane and I had eagerly waited for such a 
chance. Instead of taking four days and five nights on a 
train to travel three thousand miles, I would be home in 
about twelve hours. 

I arrived at the airport and rushed aboard the plane- 
as soon as I could. Taking some person's advice, I took a 
seat near the front. After what seemed hours, but ir, 
reality was a few minutes, one propeller began to whirl. 
Soon the plane was roaring down the runway. 

At last we were on our way home. The stewardess 
came round to give us our lunch but I was so excited that 
I hardly touched the food. A short time after lunch the 
plane was tossed up and down a little and I thought we 
were in an airpocket. But I found out it was only a change 
of wind. Soon I became a little bored and I got a maga- 
zine from the front of the plane. After a while I noticed 


that we were going to land. I asked the stewaidess where 
we were. She said we were over San Antonio where we 
had to pass customs. This took about an hour and then 
we boarded the plane. Our next stop was Monterrey but 
we only spent a few minutes there. 

Finally we set off again, our next stop being Mexico. 
We arrived here late at night. I was asleep but was 
wakened by the stewardess when we were ten minutes 
away. We landed and were told we had to go through 
more customs. At that hour of the night (midnight), I 
did not look forward to passing customs but I was now

One day my Mother brought me a baby fawn. Shortly 
afterward we missed him. He was found on the fields of 
Upper Canada College eating grass. 

We named him Billy. He did not know what Billy 
meant. Every day we would call him. He did come once 
or twice. He was getting to know his name. 

A few days later we built him a pen with a bed, walls 
and a roof. It was so big that the fawn could stand up 
and turn around. Because winter was coming along, we 
would put a soft blanket over him every night to keep him 

The fawn was getting bigger nearly every day. When 
winter came he would be a deer. He was six feet at the 
head and four feet from the ground. All his white spots 
were off his back. He was just about a full grown deer. 

One day we took Billy to one of the fields of Upper 
Canada College to have some fun. running, riding, and 

Spring came and then, one day, the deer was gone. 
We found it on a field at Upper Canada College. He was

We can look back on a very satisfactory season. While 
we managed to lose our first three games, we also won the 
last three. 

Team-play is the very essence of a good football team 
and the team of 1948 rates high in this respect. Their 
eagerness to learn and their spirit of wholehearted co- 
operation with each other and with the coaches made it 
a pleasure to coach them. 

Mention should also be made of those boys who turned 
out for practice day after day with little hope of getting 
on the team. By their keenness and good sportsmanship 
at all times they made a very important contribution to 
the team as a whole. May they all be members of next 
year's team! 

Summary of the Season 

Thurs. October 7, at Lakefield Lost 11 — 1 

Wed. October 13, Lakefield at Port Hope Lost 17—12 
Sat. October 23, Ridley in Toronto Lost 35 — 15 

Sat. October 30, at U.C.C. Won 6—5 

Wed. November 3, U.T.S. at Port Hope Won 10—1 

Sat. November 6, S.A.C. at Port Hope Won 18—16 

The first game against Lakefield was a very much 
closer contest than the score would indicate. The J.S. held 
the initiative throughout the first half of the game but 
failed to capitalize on many good scoring opportunities 
through lack of experience. Lakefield showed superior 
strength in the second half and pulled off some very good 


extension plays. Seagram kicked a rouge for T.C.S. in the 
first quarter. 

Final Score: T.C.S. 1, Lakefield 11. 

The return match at Port Hope saw T.C.S. put on 
some very strong drives with Jackman and Seagram both 
scoring touchdowns. Seagram also kicked a rouge while 
Mowry converted one of the touchdowns. The game was 
in the balance until the final whistle. T.C.S. missed several 
good opportunities within Lakefield' s 15-yard line in the 
dying moments of the game but Lakefield failed to tie up 
the score. 

Final Score: T.C.S. 12, Lakefield 17. 

Ridley Lower School team playing their usual brand 
of fluid football took an early ten point lead but touch- 
downs by Greey, Luxton and Lafleur, H. brought the half- 
time score to 15-14 for the School. In the second half 
Ridley's superior weight began to tell on the T.C.S. blockers 
and Ridley forged ahead. 

Final Score: T.C.S. 15, Ridley 35. 

The game against U.C.C. was every bit as even as the 
score indicates, with T.C.S. perhaps holding a slight ad- 
vantage in the final quarter. Jackman scored a touch- 
down for T.C.S. and Seagram kicked a rouge. 

Final Score: T.C.S. 6, U.C.C. 5. 

The School held the edge against U.T.S. at Port Hope 
although the game produced a very even tussle. 
Final Score: T.C.S. 10, U.T.S. 1. 

The final game of the year against S.A.C. was in 
doubt until the final whistle blew. The teams were very 
evenly matched and each was ahead at certain stages of 


the game. Seagram scored two touchdowns and two 
rouges. Gordon one touchdown, and Greey kicked for the 
lone convert. 

Final Score: T.C.S. 18, S.A.C. 16.

The story of the glorious service of T.C.S. Old Boys 
in three wars was published in August and since that time 
has received a number of very complimentary reviews in 
the papers of Toronto and Montreal. Many letters have 
been received from Old Boys, parents, and friends of the 
School, in appreciation of this handsome volume and its 
more than five hundred pictures of Old Boys. Copies are 
stUl available and your- subscription should be sent in now 
to the Secretary, The T.C.S. O.B.A., Port Hope, Ontario. 
The price is $5.00. 

A mother of a boy killed overseas has written: 
"The book brings much of interest and gratification 

to us all and will be treasured by us throughout the years 

to come". 

Another parent of two Old Boys says: 

"I was deeply touched at the thought, dignity, and 

tremendous work which must have gone into the compiling 

of this volume". 

A former master and father of two Old Boys wishes 
to congratulate the Association on getting out such a 
splendid record which, he says, will be a great addition to 
any library. 

An Old Boy expresses his appreciation: 
"Without a doubt this is the finest living record that 
a school could want. Many friends have remarked on the 
organization of material, the pictures, the great interest, 
and finally the excellent printing job done". 


A mother of a boy who did not return calls the book 
"The Treasure House of T.C.S." 

A life member of the GJoveming Body of the School 
describes the book as a very fine one, beautifully got up 
and exceptionally complete, a book that is not only a 
tribute to all those who served but also a fine and complete 
record of a great many Old Boys. 


The review of T.C.S. Old Boys at war as written by 
Mr. Paul E. Bilkey and published by the Montreal Gazette 
is reproduced here in full. We feel it is a beautifully ex- 
pressed tribute to the Old Boys and the School and that 
it will be of deep interest to all who read "The Record". 

Under the title "Trinity College School Old Boys At 
War" there has been published a record, fully illustrated, 
of the contribution which young men from "the School on 
the Hill" at Port Hope made toward the preservation tif 
human liberty, and of the price they paid. 

It is a remarkable story and The Old Boys' Associa- 
tion who have presented it have made no effort to embel- 
lish it. There was no need. 

It goes back to the South African war when fifty-four 
Old Boys enlisted and four gave their lives ; passes through 
the First World War, when 596 enlisted, including nine 
former masters, and 123 were killed; and tells, in perhaps 
fuller measure, of the 855, including twenty former mas- 
ters, who enlisted in the Second World War, and of the 
sixty who did not return. 

Standing by itself, the number of enlistments in the 
second great conflict was sufficiently impressive, being 
equal to ninety-eight per cent of all the bovs who left the 
School in the twenty years prior to the outbreak of hostih- 
ties, but there is also very striking evidence of the char- 
acter of service these young men gave; the number of 
awards received by them was equal to twenty-one per cent 
of the total enlistment and is estimated at thirty per cent 
of those who were actually under fire. 


It is not surprising that a seasoned Major-General in 
the British War Office expressed amazement at this renortl 
and voiced his belief that no other school in the Empire 
could equal it. 

All this did not come to pass through accident. Con- 
sciously or otherwise Trinity College School has been fol- 
lowing a pattern as old as the time of John Milton: "I call, 
therefore, a complete and generous education that which 
fits a man to perform justly, skillfully, and magnanimously, 
all the offices, both private and public, of peace and war." 
The definition is Milton's own. T.C.S., while giving full 
scope to educational development in the arts and sciences 
of peace, has not neglected the sterner things of life. Its 
Cadet Corps dates back to 1865, the time of its foundation 
by a veteran of Waterloo, and in five successive years this 
Corps has been first in Canada in shooting for the Imperial 
Challenge Shield, winning the Shield in 1944 against some 
eight hundred other Empire schools. 

All the Old Boys who served in the three wars had 
been members of the Cadet Corps which, in 1936, became 
affiliated with a squadron of the R.C.A.F., the first such 
Corps to be so attached in any English-speaking country. 
Again, T.C.S. was the first School to institute a course of 
militarv studies for all senior pupils, commencing in Octo- 
ber. 1941. 

So it is that from the class-rooms, the playing fields 
and training ground of the School on the HUl, young men 
have gone out equipped for service whether in peace or in 
war. Many of them have reached great eminence, either 
in civil life or in the armed services, at sea, on land, and 
in the air. Their faces look out from the pages of this 
book. The Roll of Honor is a long one. Mostly it is youth 
that is there, youth which can never be anything more, 
can never be anything at all except a proud and wistful 
memory in the hearts and souls of living people. They 
gave what they had, all of it, and freely, and a very fine 
Canadian, himself bereaved, has said: "It is the quality of 
a life that really counts, and not its mere duration." 

There is a cross on the hill at Trinity College School, 
erected there to the memory of these gallant sons, and 
there is to be built, as a lasting War Memorial, a very 
beautiful chapel in which wUl be inscribed the names of all 
the Old Boys who lost their lives in the war, and there is 
to be also a Book of Remembrance bearing the names of 


all who served. Costing a quarter of a million, this chapel 
will stand as a permanent tribute to the sons of the SchfX)!. 
to their valor and their sacrifice. If the expressed hope 
of Bishop Renison is realized it "will be for all those who 
love their old School a shrine of remembrance and a West-

has been one like it in the School magazine for a great 
many years. It deals, in a general sense, with the one 
great fault of boarding schools — their tendency to sub- 
merge the individual personality to a lowest common 
denominator. To this general statement our School is no 
exception. One can see at the School the same tmfortunate 
results of this trend as traced in the article. But the 
causes named by the author, if they be true in the general 
case, have little bearing on T.C.S. He attributes this 


attitude of mind to the uninspired policies of the various 
Boards of Education in Canada and in the United States. 
While the policies of the Ontario Board may have some 
effect, ill or otherwise, on the atmosphere of the School, 
tliese effects are greatly minimized by our virtual inde- 
pendence in the courses followed in the different subjects 
up to the Senior Matriculation form. In any case these 
policies have little bearing on the situation in question; 
the main cause would seem to be elsewhere. 

But whatever the cause, this trend is not confined to 
boarding schools. We can see it in virtually all the schools 
in the country and in a somewhat changed form in society 
in general. In boarding school, however, where a small 
group of boys are compelled to live in close contact with 
one another it is naturally emphasized. In a school such 
as ours where the individual's actions stand out so much 
more than those of an individual in a larger society, there 
is no opportunity to pursue one's own course in relative 
obscurity. Nor is there much chance for the boy whose 
interests and tastes are exceptional, of meeting others of 
the same interests. The incentive to conform to the life 
of the average boy is very powerful. A boy with a per- 
sonality different from the average finds it difficult at 
first to get on. He finds that the boys with whom he is in 
contact value a rather small, set group of characteristics, — 
ability in sports, ability to get on, wit, — and he is inclined 
to think that unless he can develop these characteristics 
he will be left out and ignored. The emphasis in a small, 
close-knit group is naturally on getting on with others, and 
very often the individual personality is shoved into the 
background before the more immediate necessity of making 
friends. Instead of waiting until his own peculiar virtues 
are known and recognized, the newly-arrived boy will often 
artificially put on others that are already recognized. And 
the boy who cannot or will not subject his own personality 
to this process of levelling out, is usually either completely 
ignored or else taken to task by a number of self-styled 


But this fault, stemming as it does from the funda- 
mental attitude of mind of most boys, is almost incurable. 
It is common to almost every school, and weighed against 
the great good that can come out of a good boarding 
school education such as is obtainable at T.C.S., it is not 
as important as it may seem. Many boys manage to meet 
this challenge to the individual quite effectively when they 
reach the upper forms, and end up greatly strengthened 
in character by their experience. 

But some good can still be done in this instance by 
the development of a greater tolerance among the boys 
for others different from themselves. This change, hov7- 
ever, must come from the boys themselves — no outside 
source can stamp a different sense of values on them. It 
should be developed by intelligent leadership on the part 
of the School officers and those of influence in the School. 
This would be a very significant step in the life of the 
School and would represent a very important addition to 
the great good that it has to offer. It would aid greatly 
in the development of that factor which is, after all, the 
foundation of our democratic life — the individual per- 



"Put on the Armour of God*' 

At our evening Chapel service on Sunday, November 
28, the Rev. Mr. Brewin from Cobourg gave the address. 

His theme was on preparedness and a planning of 
one's life in preparation for the second coming of Christ, 
which the church has always maintained will come to pass. 

In explaining his theme Mr. Brev/in mentioned "Cast- 
ing off the works of darkness" such as lies, deceit, im- 
purity, envy and hate and "putting on the armour of God". 
When a man or a boy picks some particular cause in life 
and dedicates himself to it he is "putting on Jesus Christ". 
He dedicates himself to a life of truth no matter what 
others may do to hinder him. This is a prepared life, a 
life of peace and not a wasteful one. 

In giving us an example, Mr. Brewin took our country, 
Canada. He emphasized that there is no better cause to 
dedicate ourselves to than this beautiful nation with its 
wonderful rivers, forests, rich fields and lovely cities. 
Hov/ever. this was not the only Canada that Mr. Brewin 


mentioned ; he told us that some parts of Canada that were 
once rich land are wasting away because of lack of knowl- 
edge among the inhabitants of how to look after it. He 
told us of our cities which seem beautiful at first sight 
but reveal behind the tall buildings, the slum areas, hardly 
fit for animals to live in. These are the sore spots, the 
faults to whose correction men of all professions should 
dedicate themselves because by doing so they are "putting 
on Jesus Christ". 


What is your most precious possession? A bicycle, 
a motor car, a television set, a very fine camera, a valuable 
watch perhaps? Those are material possessions and if you 
had one of them which you prized highly, you would tm- 
doubtedly take the utmost care of it. 

Think how thrilled you would be if some fine morning 
you found that a fairy Godfather had brought you a 
beautiful convertible car, swift as the wind, obedient to 
your slightest touch. And for your very own. Wouldn't 
you be speechless for joy? Wouldn't you look after it in 
every detail, keep it in your mind, treasure it and do your 
best to see that it was never taken from you? I think you 

And you have other precious possessions. K you have 
been fortunate enough to have been bom without physical 
defect you have health of body and health of mind. Some- 
times we forget how precious those possessions are. 

I think, after consideration, you would say that with 
them, with a sound mind and a sound body, you were 
equipped to lead a happy and successful and full life. 

"Mens Sana in corpore sano" is a popular motto: a 
healthy mind and a healthy body are great possessions and 
you are right in prizing them highly; you should g^ard 


them as carefully as you would that convertible car. and 
keep them as spotless. 

And please remember that a man does himself more 
permanent harm by taking poisonous matter into his mind 
than he does by taking it into his body. It is fairly easy 
to cleanse the body inside and out ; it is not nearly so easy 
to cleanse the mind. You can wipe the spots off the body 
of your car without much trouble, but it will take an 
expert to clean out the head of the cylinder. 

Yes. a healthy body and a healthy mind are great 
possessions, more valuable even than that car, I think you 
will agree. 

Every boy in this School has these treasures of sound 
body and mind, and each one of you should guard them 

There is another treasure even more valuable than 
these, a treasure we can all possess and make our own, 
but which we often pass by without much thought be- 
cause we seem to be able to get along in this life without 
it. Only at times of crisis, like a terrible war, or a sudden 
death in our family do we give proper thought to that 
possession. There is a little story I am fond of, told by 
Rudyard Kipling, which runs like this: 

"Once upon a time, or rather at the birth of time, 
when the Gods were so new they had no names, and man 
was still damp from the clay of the pit whence he had been 
digged, man claimed that he, too, was in some sort, a God. 

"The Gods weighed his evidence and decided that 
man's claim was good. 

"Having conceded man's claim, the legend goes that 
they came by stealth and stole away this godhead with 
intent to hide it where man should never find it again. But 
this was not easy. If they hid it anywhere on earth, the 
Gods foresaw that man would leave no stone unturned till 
he had recovered it. If they concealed it among them- 
selves, they feared man might batter his way right up to 
the skies in his search for it. 

"And while they were thus at a stand, the wisest of 
the gods said, 'I know, give it to me.' He closed his hand 
upon the tiny, unstable light of man's stolen godhead, and 


when that great hand opened again the Ught was gone. 
'All is weir, he said, 'I have hidden the godhead where 
man will never dream of looking for it. I have hidden it 
inside man himself." 

You know that men who think only of their physical 
well being can be brutes: and men who have developed 
only their minds can be cunning and deceitful and evil, 
and can lead others astray. History is full of such people 
and we can read of them every day in the newspapers. 
They have forgotten the Godhead within them, or never 
discovered it. 

What a happy world this would be if each man had 
discovered and developed that priceless possession some- 
times so well hidden in himself, the knowledge of God. 

To-day in Paris statesmen from all the nations of the 
world are trying to find a way for men to live together 
happily and peacefully. They are not having unqualified 
success because man has not fully discovered his Godhead. 
He is still too full of suspicions and greed and jealousy 
and fear — in a word, he is self-seeking instead of being 

There is one great purpose in life: it has been known 
by wise men throughout the ages and to-day thinkers 
everywhere are saying that man must lay that purpose to 
his heart, he must ever keep it in the forefront of his mind 
if he is to survive. For there is not as much time to fulfil 
that purpose as there used to be. It is as if a terrible 
sword of unprecedented size and sharpness hangs over 
men's heads and the cord holding that sword is becoming 
appallingly frayed through misuse; it is terribly thin. If 
that sword is not to fall on the whole of mankind, we must 
begin to fulfil that great purpose without more delay, 
which is to find the Good Life. 

The Good Life, it has been said, is that which is best 
for the unborn. 

K you will look through the pages of history, if you 
will think of all the really great men who have made life 
better for succeeding generations, for the unborn, what do 
you find? 


You find, without exception, that they were men who 
had thought on the meaning of the good life and had tried 
to practice it themselves and make it more general in the 
world at large. They had, perhaps only in a small way, 
discovered the God within them. 

This is called Bible Sunday and the collect for to-day, 
as well as the lessons, draw attention to the Bible as being 
the treasure house of the knowledge of Gk)d. "Search the 
Scriptures", we are bidden, and learn God's way. Yet 
how often the Bible remains unopened on our shelves. 

At this season of the year we are becoming excited 
about the advent of Christmas Day. To most of you, 
Christmas now means holidays, fun, presents. It is a happy 
time for all. 

But with the modem mad rush in the preparation for 
Christmas, so many people forget entirely the reason that 
there is such a festival. It is, of course, because that day, 
the 25th of December, is the birthday of Jesus. It is His 
birthday. His coming that the v/orld should celebrate, and 
it is His message that we should deeply lay to heart. What 
is that message? It is the timeless truth that man can- 
not live by bread alone but that he can live happily and 
peacefully if he will learn God's way and practice God's 
law. All our doubts and difficulties and shortcomings will 
be dispelled like the mist before the rising sun, for the 
message of Jesus is the message of Goodwill and fellow- 
ship between man and man, it is the story of a full and 
abundant and joyous life, it is the promise of the remis- 
sion of sins — God will forgive if the heart is truly penitent, 
it is the great comfort of knowing that there is a spiritual 
life, a life beyond the horizon which is the limit of our 
mortal sight, it is the priceless gift of knowing that God 
dwells in us and that he cares to the utmost for each one 
of us. 

That is the real meaning of Christmas Day. 

The first Christians took part in the birth of a new 
hope, a new faith, a new inspiration, which will eventually 


bring about a new world brotherhood — if we have time. 

The Christian crusade has spread from year to year 
all over the world, embracing millions, until last summer 
it saw a wonderful congress of Christian leaders at Amster- 
dam representing nearly all the Christian churches in the 
world. And they resolved to work together as a great 
council for the welfare of the world, to save the world 
from self destruction. How Bishop Brent, one of our 
distinguished Old Boys, would have rejoiced to see that 
day, for he was the first leading Churchman in the world 
to work for such unity. 

So Christianity is on the march. I firmly believe that 
religion alone will save men from annihilation. Yet how 
often man fails to make his religion the central sun of his 
being, the hub from which all the spokes of his other 
interests radiate. 

Christianity has always attracted men of vision, men 
of self sacrifice, men of adventure, spiritually minded men, 
and they have spread the good news. But the world 
desperately needs more such men to-day. 

On Christmas Day we receive gifts from our friends. 
Shall we not give a good gift to our best friend? The 
g^t He would like better than any other would be a pure 
heart, the strong will to lead a good life, the deep desire 
to know God, and to make Him known to others through 
our own lives. 

Every year at Christmas Christ calls for disciples, 
gallant men who will help to save others and the world 
from disaster. There are still not enough of them. 

Christmas is a holy day, 
He came with us to stay; 
Through gallant lives, each 

year by year, 
Though time's oppress, we 

draw more near 
To His abiding way. 


The Carol Service 

The Carol service this year will go down in the records 
as one of the best the School has ever had. There were 
many visitors present, among them a number of Old Boys. 
Chairs were placed along the sides of the aisles to accom- 
modate the large gathering. The Chapel was decorated 
with three large Christmas trees and beautiful flowers on 
the altar. However, the weatherman showed none of the 
Christmas spirit, supplying us with a mild and rainy day. 

The Choir was very good and received many praises 
for its work. Special praise should go to Mr. Cohu for 
his hard work in getting the Choir in shape. Every year 
he gives us one of the finest carol services to be heard 

The Choir sang some of the old traditional carols as 
well as four new and unfamiliar ones. Of the former, 
'TBreak Forth O Beauteous Heavenly Light" and "Shep- 
herds, Shake Off Your Drowsy Sleep", were particularly 
well treated. Some of the new carols did not have quite 
the same appeal but two numbers should receive mention: 
"Villagers All, This Frosty Tide", exceptionally well simg 
m two parts by the Trebles and Altos, and the other, "The 
Polish Carol" with its plaintive opening, stirring middle 
section, and unusual organ accompaniment. "Crood King 
Wenceslas" brought out an excellent effort from all with 
the Choir accompanying the soloists very well. CroU was 
impressive as the King, while Price did a fine job with the 
treble solo. They are both to be commended. 

The Congregation held up their part of the service 
very well, lacking no volume in rendering several well 
known carols after two practices beforehand. Special 
mention should be made of the excellent reading of the 
lessons by the boys. 

The complete programme was as follows:

The Season of the Epiphany 

The Chaplain opened the first sermon of the term hy 
sketching the Christmas scene as told by Matthew, and 
the early life of Christ, which was led in self-effacement 
and "quiet secrecy". Then he told of the three Gentile 
Kings from the East who came in great splendour, over 
many mUes, to worship Jesus — a strange contrast with 
the humble surroundings where he lay, and with the atti- 
tude of the Jews, who must have known about the 
Epiphany, but made no move to worship him. Mr. Bagley 
saw this as a rebuke to the Jews, God's own people. He 
explained also that the paradox of Jesus choosing a life of 
obscurity, yet wishing to be manifest, is applicable to our 
Christian lives, for we are told to be modest in our worship, 
and yet make of our lives an example to others. We who 
are accustomed to the privileges of our religion, seem to 
take them for granted, as did the Jews in the time of 
Herod, yet "outsiders" seek the light as did the three 
Kings. The Chaplain concluded by saying that we should 
act as missionaries, a guiding light to those around us, as 
well as to those in foreign countries, so that all the world 
will come to know Christ. 


Through the good offices of Mrs. Wallace Lee we 
have recently learnt the story of Hilary Clapp; it was 
published in the magazine "Forth", the official organ of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States, and 
was written by the Rev. Clifford Nobes who worked with 
Dr. Clapp in the Philippines. The Headmaster told the 
story to the School in Chapel on Sunday, January 23rd. 

Hilary Clapp was bom in a mud hut near the village 
of Bontoc in the remote mountainous district of the Philip- 
pines, to parents who belonged to the tribe of Igorots. 
Although efforts had been made by priests of the Roman 


Catholic Church to christianize the Igorots, such efforts 
had been unsuccessful. Later, an Episcopal Missionary, 
the Rev. W. C. Clapp, arrived at Bontoc and quietly began 
his priestly duties. He set about learning the language 
and it was not long before he noticed an attractive little 
native boy, who seemed quite fascinated by the Missionary 
and his ritual. This boy turned out to be a lad by the 
name of Pit-a-Pit. He became attached to Mr. Clapp, and 
Mr. Clapp to him, and he was soon baptized in the Christian 
faith. He assisted Mr. Clapp to learn the language, and 
in turn Mr. Clapp taught him English. Pit-a-Pit brought 
many other friends to Mr. Clapp and very soon there v/as 
a fflnall Christian group among the natives. 

It was clear to Mr. Clapp that Pit-a-Pit had a good 
brain and he introduced him to elementary school work. 
Later, despite the misgivings of the natives and his own 
parents, it was found possible to send him to a part of the 
island inhabited by enemies of the Igorots, and Pit-a-Pit 
entered the Easter School at Baguio. There he was in- 
spired with the new world which was opened to him by 
books and by his growing desire to serve his fellow 
natives. Mr. Clapp interested the Bishop of the Philip- 
pines, the Right Rev. G. C. H. Brent, a T.C.S. Old Boy 
and former Master, in Pit-a-Pit, and Bishop Brent arranged 
to send him to Trinity College School in September 1907. 
Pit-a-Pit had taken the name of his benefactor and was 
officially known as Hilary Clapp. 

At T.C.S. he soon became very popular because of his 
sunny disposition and ready wit, and also because he was 
the only native Philippine boy ever to attend the School. 
He had great physical strength and amused himself par- 
ticularly in the gymnasium. He learnt English well and 
made good progress in his studies. When he left in 1910 
he was able to enter the University of the Philippines, and 
began the study of Medicine, as he felt his people needed 
medical care almost more than anything else. Eventually 
he graduated with his degree and he joined the Govern- 


ment Health Service, requesting that he be stationed 
among his own people in Bontoc. There he began long 
years of notable service to the natives as a Christian 
doctor, and he was able to found a small hospital. On 
numerous occasions the Government offered him promo- 
tions but he always refused them because he wished to 
stay in the wilds with his native tribesmen. He was, how- 
ever, appointed their representative in the Legislative 

Then war came, and with it the Japanese invasion in 
1942. The natives were panic-striken and fled in large 
numbers to the hills. Dr. Clapp lost most of his hospital 
staff. He was urged by all his friends to make good his 
escape while it was possible to do so, but he decided to 
remain at his post, as he felt the natives would more than 
ever need the service of a doctor. The Japanese took over 
control of the country and decided that they would like 
to have a native as a Puppet Governor. Their choice 
narrowed down to two possible men, one was a traitor who 
had led the Japanese into the country, and the other was 
Dr. Clapp. They approached Dr. Clapp and offered him 
the post. This was a very difficult decision for him to 
make. He knew full well that if he accepted such a posi- 
tion under the Japanese, the Americans and his owti people 
would probably regard him as a collaborator; on the other 
hand, he knew that if the traitor were given the post, life 
would be made much more difficult for the natives. He 
also realized that, if he were in a position of some authority, 
it would be possible for him to assist the escaped American 
prisoners, with whom he was already in touch, and. in 
numerous ways, to help the resistance forces. After con- 
sulting some of his friends, and many hours of meditation, 
he decided to accept the offer and for three years he acted 
as Governor of that part of the Philippines, under the 
Japanese. During all this time, it has now been revealed. 
Dr. Clap}) lost no opportunity to send food and money 
surreptitiously to prisoners in Japanese camps, to give 


valuable information about coming attacks to the guer- 
rilla forces in the hills, and to send regular supplies to the 
natives who were in hiding. He was convinced that the 
tide of war would turn and that eventually the Japanese 
would be defeated. 

Then the Americans invaded the Island and he waa 
again urged to flee, as his friends felt it might be very 
dangerous if he was found working for the Japanese. Once 
more Dr. Clapp decided to remain at his post, because he 
knew he might restrain the Japanese from committing 
atrocities when they foimd they were being defeated. The 
Americans advanced to the neighborhood of Bontoc and 
the guerrilla bands became more bold. One band swooped 
on the village, and not knowing Dr. Clapp or his work, 
they took him prisoner. He explained to them, as best he 
could, what he had been doing and they decided to remove 
him to Headquarters for questioning, but on the way one 
of their number stabbed Dr. Clapp and he died on the road- 

After the fighting had ceased, the Americans set up 
a Commission of Enquiry to discover the facts about Dr. 
Clapp and others who seemed to have been working aa 
collaborators. They collected all the evidence, interviewed 
witnesses, and after an exhaustive examination the Com- 
mission published their finding: "It may be concluded 
that if Dr. Hilary P. Clapp was executed by the guerrilla 
organization . . . the execution was a fatal mistake, for 
the late Dr. Qapp was a patriot and not a collaborator . . " 

It seems perfectly clear now that Hilary Pit-a-Pit 
Clapp might easily have saved himself, but that he chose 
to remain at his post so that he could be of more vital 
service to his people. A memorial to him has recently 
been placed in All Saints' Church, Bontoc, with the fol- 
lowing inscription: "To the Glory of God, and in Loving 
Memory of Hilary Pit-a-Pit Clapp, Christian and patriot." 

T.C.S. boys who Imew Hilary Clapp will be proud of 
his brave Christian career; it is felt that some contribution 



might be made to All Saints' Church, Bontcx:. or to the 
hospital in Bontoc, by his former schoolmates in his 
memory. The Headmaster is getting in touch with the 
Missionary' at Bontoc and a further announcement will be 
made in the columns of "The Record". 




A New Rink 

An announcement that thrilled the School was made 
by the Headmaster as we go to press. Mr. George Mc- 
Cullagh has made the magnificent gift of $100,000 to the 
School for the purpose of building an artificial ice rink in 
memory of Peter Campbell. Further details will be given 
in the next issue of the Record. 

Gifts to the School 

Col. C. S. Maclnnes, C.M.G., has had a stone fireplace 
built in the Pat Moss Ski Camp as a memorial to Pat. This 
work was completed during the Christmas holidays and 
it is proving a most welcome addition to the bungalow. 


Mr. J. H. Goodbody has given a very valuable collec- 
tion of books to the School library. They comprise bio- 
graphy, history, historical novels and fiction, and all are 
beautifully bound and in practically new condition. 


Dr. J. G. Lee ('98-'03) has given a valuable book en- 
titled "Incidents in the Life of J. G. Howard". Mr, Howard 
was a surveyor and architect and he planned many of the 
streets and buildings in Toronto between 1834 and 1855. 
The book is in diary form and throws much light on the 
history of those times, especially the local history. 


G. B. Strathy ('95-'97) and Dr. J. G. Lee have made 
generous donations to a fund which they wish used to help 
ID the construction or equipment of a covered rink which 
they hope will be built in memory of Peter Campbell. 

« * « » * 

The Port Hope Branch of the Ladies' Guild have 
placed a steel railing by the stone steps leading to the 
Memorial Cross. 


Mrs. E. Cowperthwaite, mother of Ted and Dale 
Cowperthwaite, has given to the School a beautiful paint- 
ing in oils of her late son, Dale. The portrait was painted 
by W. H. Barribal, a well-known English artist, and it 
shows Dale standing in his light blue Air Force uniform, 
with his "Mae West" strapped on. He is holding a map 
in. his hands. It is an extremely good likeness of Dale, 
and the harmonizing of the light blues, grays and broxvns 
IB most effective. 

The painting is beautifully framed and bears th» 
iDQScription : 

"The Spirit of Canadian Youth 

F/Q Dale Cowperthwaite 

T.C.S. 1924-1932 

Presented by W. H. Barribal" 

Mr. Barribal gave the painting to Mrs. Cowperthwaite 
who has presented it to the School. 

For over two years in the early part of the War, this 
painting was on exhibition in London and it won much 
praise from the thousands who saw it. 

Dale Cowperthwaite was a Prefect at T.C.S., he played 
on the first football team and on Bigside Cricket. He en- 
listed in the R.C.A.F. soon after the outbreak of war, won 
iiis commission as Pilot Officer in 1941 and was promoted 


to Flying Officer in 1942, and later to Flight Lieutenant. 
He served as a bomber pilot in Coastal Command for many- 
months, raiding German shipping. On one occasion he 
showed exceptional skill in bringing his plane back to base 
after his machine had been badly damaged by anti-aircraft 
fire and one of the crew had been womided. On February 
12, 1942, he was killed in action while attacking the 
German warships Schamhorst and Gneisenau in the Eng- 
lish Channel. 

The Air Ministry leported the action as follows: "He 
was acting Flight Commander for 407 (Demon) Squadron. 
He led the charge into a hail of anti-aircraft fire and the 
last seen of him he was straddling the ships with his load 
of bombs with nearly a dozen Nazi fighter planes after 
him." He was mentioned in despatches for gallantry. 

Dale's only brother, Ted, was killed in the Royal Air 
Force in November, 1941. 

The School will ever prize this beautiful portrait as 
a work of art and as a symbol of the highest self-sacrifice 
and courage; we are indeed proud that a T.C.S. Old Boy 
should have been chosen as the subject of such an inspired 

At present the picture is hanging in the Guild Room 
but when the Memorial Chapel is built it v^dll hang in the

and library. 


The School was thrilled on Tuesday evening, February 
1, when the Headmaster announced in Hall that Taylor i 
had been selected to represent Canadian Secondary School 
boys at the Youth Forum in England from March 10th 
until May 10th. "Taylor has brought great honour to 
himself", said Mr. Ketchum, "and that honour is reflected 
on the Schools he has attended, Selwyn House School in 
Montreal, and this School. I cannot think of another 


occasion when a Secondary School boy has been chosen 
from all Canada to attend an international Forum, and we 
know that Taylor is particularly well qualified to represent 
Canada at such a gathering." 

The School gave Taylor a tremendous ovation, which 
was repeated when the Head declared Wednesday to be a 
whole holiday in his honour. Taylor made some suitable 
remarks in acknowledgment. 

Last November the London Daily Mail announced a 
competition to choose representatives from thirteen coun- 
tries to attend a Youth Forum in England and Scotland 
from March 10th until May 10th. 1949. All expenses 
were to be paid by the Daily Mail and the meeting was 
being organized by the Council for Education in World 
Citizenship in association with the Daily Mail. 

Candidates were to be chosen by the Principals of the 
Schools, they were to be between fifteen and nineteen years 
of age, their detailed school records were to be submitted, 
and they were to write an essay on the subject "The World 
We Want". Taylor's essay was written without assistance 
and ran to about twelve hundred words. 

One boy and one girl are being chosen to represent 
Canada, the United States, South Africa. Norway, Sweden. 
Denmark, Australia. New Zealand, the West Indies, France. 
Holland, Belgium and Italy. They will be flowTi to England 
and the following outline of the programme has been 
drawn up: 

10th Students arrive in England by air. 

12th Official reception in London. 

13th-17th Visits to places of interest in London and the 
home counties. 

18th Students depart to their hosts' homes. 

21st to 
April 11th Visits to schools, civic receptions, discussion 
groups, etc. 


April 20th-30th Forums in Edinburgh, or Glasgow, and 

in Manchester. Birmingham, Cardiff 
and Leeds. 
May 2nd Change-over: Students who have been stay- 
ing in country homes will now become 
guests of town-dwellers, and vice-versa. 
May 9th Final Forum in London. 
May 10th-14th Students depart for their own homes. 

The object of the Forum is to have boys and girls 
from different freedom-loving countries learn more of each 
other's ways of life, to gain the fullest possible knowledge 
of Britain, her people and institutions, and to provide an 
opportunity for discussion groups, broadcasts, forums, etc., 
on international affairs. It is hoped that the delegates 
will be prepared to inform, as well as be informed, and 
that they will take to their own countries such new ideas 
as Britain has to offer. 

Last June, at sixteen years of age, Taylor won ten 
first class honours in his Upper School examinations, and 
this year he has been expanding and deepening his learn- 
ing as well as taking a leading part in many educational 
groups outside of class. He has been Head of his House, 
Bethune, Editor of "The Record", President of the Debat- 
ing Club, President of the Political Science Club, Vice- 
President of the Dramatic Society, and he has conducted the 
music evenings in the Hall. Last autumn he attended the 
meeting of the Hansard Society at Convocation Hall, 
Toronto, in company with other T.C.S. representatives, and 
he was chosen to take part in a round table discussion on 
political questions, which was broadcast. 

We shall miss him during March and April, but will 
follow his experiences with the utmost interest. The School 
is extremely proud of him. 



The Grapevine is a new addition to your attractive 
School magazine (advt.) and its purpose is to do what the 
heading implies, if you follow us. We will round up Uttle 
scraps of news from about the School and run them all 
together in this column. Having got that off our chest — 
and feeling much better for having made a free confession 
about the whole business — we hope you will continue to 
bear with us until the bitter end. If you've got this far 
you may as well keep reading; that bit of study can wait. 

Lately we notice that the House Officers have started 
their evening rounds in pairs. What's the trouble, men! 

losing control? that air of gloom pervading the 

Common Room can be attributed to the absence of 
GRAEME HUYCKE;— yes boys, it's reaUy true— Graeme 
is a Senior and all the House Officers miss him and his 
friendly brown eyes .... MR. SNELGROVE is making 
plans for a piano concert by some of his star pupils; he 
hopes to have two and perhaps three or four-piano pieces 
.... there are two very promising New Boys in his class 
now— MILLER ii and DOMVILLE ; we've heard that Miller 
also plays the flute, talented, wot? . . . for a two-piano piece 
our vote would go to JACK DENNYS and CON BAKER 
... man if you haven't heard those two render their 
version of the Rachmaninoff Prelude, you haven't lived 
.... speaking of the musically talented — has anyone NOT 
heard DON GILLEY play his clarinet lately? .... if so, 
please let us know how you manage it. 

It is rather shaking to notice that young SLATER 
managed to squeeze through his Christmas examinations 
with an average of 93.1 per cent .... this has crushed 
aeveral boys completely, including one Senior of our 
acquaintance . . . perhaps in Slater, who hails from Aus- 
irylia. we have a competitor for the g^eat DOGGY MILL- 
WARD .... Doggy, as most of us know obtained an 
average of 95 per cent in his Middle School exams and 
won numerous valuable scholarships when he graduated 




Rhodei Scholar elect for Bermuda 

J. J. M. Paterson, A. K. Paterson, C. M. Taylc 


.... he left T.C.S. in 1944 .... to go from the sublime to 
the ridiculous — instead of extra study for those boys who 
do not obtain sixty per cent in their exams and tests, a 
new system has been devised .... extra classes .... no 
comment .... it is hoped however that the boys affected 
appreciate the extra work that the masters are doing. 

The weather to date has been remarkable — in fact 
almost incredible .... we saw our first hockey team beat 
a representative squad from the KAPPA ALPHA Frater- 
nity on ice that resembled the packing in a champagne 
bucket as much as anything .... but the game was a sur- 
prisingly fast one .... the hockey teams which practice 
at the town rink are now being brought back by taxi to 
prevent colds .... how about the Trinity house and Hos- 
pital Dormitory mhabitants who have that long trek to the 
classroom block? 

The MONTREAL WEEKEND is now a certainty for 
the first hockey team and the basketball teams .... con- 
gratulations to the ingenious people who arranged medical 
appointments in the city for the same weekend .... and 
good luck to the thirty-eight boys trying out for mana- 
gerial positions on the three teams . . . remember now, 
the primary purpose of the trip is to represent your School 
at the games! 

Those few indolent members of the School who have 
trouble rising for 7.30 breakfast during the week are now 
getting partial relief at any rate .... breakfast has been 
temporarily advanced to 8.30 on Saturday mornings .... 
we appreciate the idea if no one else does; not because 
we're lazy but because we just like getting our three hours 
sleep a night .... and talking about getting three hours 
sleep a night, have you seen DOC CHESTER'S Chinese 
red pyjamas. He doesn't get any sleep at all. WILLS 
CHITTY reports that they glow in the dark .... that 
dragon certainly looks formidable, anyway .... and again, 
while we're on the subject of pyjamas — the basketball 
teams seem to be sporting them this season .... that is 
rather confusing .... 


Shooting is in full swing in the rifle range and MR. 
BATT expects to be down nearly every day this term .... 
he has entered the School in the D.C.R.A. and the Imperial 
Challenge Shield competition .... JIM HARRIS is in there 
blasting the bulls-eye out of the targets and CHUCK BIRD 
is busy blasting, period. 

And now, if you will all rise and remove your hats, 
here is a stirring tribute to a grand bunch .... the Record 
DEADMAN and AL AITKEN .... these boys reaUy do a 
lost of work and are the unsung heroes of the Record staff 
.... every single item that goes into your glorious School 
production (advt.) is typed by their flattened fingers .... 
if anyone would like to give the Record six new portable 
typewriters, we feel sure these uncomplaining youths 
(well, not exactly UN-complaining) would much appreciate 

Your correspondent has just come off the ice, having 
starred for th e MAPLE LEAFS in the historic opening 
1949) .... needless to say the Leafs trounced the TAY- 
LOR-PATERSON led Canadiens .... in fact, we dare to 
venture fearlessly out onto a creaking limb and predict 
that the MAPLE LEAFS, with such stalwarts as DON 
GILLEY and GRAEME HUYCKE, will sweep through the 
schedule and become Rabbit League Champions .... any 

Question of the month department .... just what, if 
you please, are all those flattened cardboard boxes (all 
300 of them) doing outside the bookroom? . . . when they 
first appeared, one memorable morning early in November, 
they caused a slight stir of interest .... since then they 
have faded from the public eye, as such things will when 
given a certain length of time, into relative obscurity .... 
the fact remains however, that they are still there and 


show tendencies of remaining that way for ever .... fellow 
students, are we going to allow such a situation to con- 
tinue? or are we going to rise to the occasion and find 
out what it's all about? 

As we go to press a heartening change in the weather 
has occurred .... some snow has fallen! . . . yes, at this 
very moment MICK SIFTON is feverishly waxing his skis 
.... suddenly, unexpectedly (and at the beginning of 
February) winter is upon us. 

Due to space limitations and censorship regulations 
(several of our choicer items have been omitted) we end 
the first edition of the Grapevine .... we hope you have 
found it interesting, and we also hope to see you again in 
the next issue of your scintillating School magazine (advt) . 

The Christmas Entertainment 

As usual, the Christmas dinner this year was a great 
success. Before the actual meal, the School was enter- 
tained by some excellent carol singing by the Choir follow- 
ing which the Yule Log was brought in accompanied by the 
Jester, who turned out to be Butterfield i. This character 
certainly deserved his name; Mr. Cole never did get his 
tomato juice. 

Amid loud poppings of crackers and strugglings for 
the candy bowls the meal got under way. After huge 
turkeys, accompanied by many trimmings, had been de- 
voured, those who had room tackled the cake and ice- 
cream. Mr. Ketchum then officially welcomed Mr. Vincent 
Massey, one of Canada's leading statesmen who was accom- 
panied by his wife, and made a short summary of the 
highlights of the School year. Thompson then led a cheer 
for Mrs. Wilkin and her staff, and we join him in thanking 
those who made such a sumptuous dinner possible. 

Upon reaching the gym. we were greeted by the sight 
of Mr. Maier's stage decked out for Christmas with a huge 
lighted wreath and several trees. 


The Junior School Chorus opened the evening's show. 
Their number proved so popular at the regular Junior 
School entertainment that it was decided to re-stage it on 
the final night. 

Football was the theme of the show, the chorus sing- 
ing especially edited versions of "Betty Co-ed" and "All- 
Canadian Girl". Clarke was the All-Canadian, and, barring 
a few rumpled hats, twirled his baton very ably. Other 
songs were "Margie" with McGlennon, the star of the show, 
in the title role, and the "Varsity Drag". The J.S. in 
general and Mr. Dennys in particular must be complimented 
or. a fine job. We were sorry to see that the programme 
had been slightly cut down. 

The J.S. was followed by Conyers Baker who played a 
medley of popular songs on his accordian with appropriate 
lighting effects a la Brian Bogue. This turned out to be 
one of the most popular musical solos in many years. 
"Buttons and Bows" was particularly well received. 

The third performance of the evening was billed as a 
variety shov/ featuring such notables as Bing, the Andrews 
Sisters, and Al Jolson. However, this met a sudden death 
at the dress rehearsal and was replaced by a skit about 
someone called the Maharaja of Jahm. The Maharaja 
(dePencier) couldn't speak English so he used an inter- 
preter who turned out to be Paterson ii with a towel on 
his head. Both Paterson ii and dePencier put up excellent 
iff unpolished performances, especially considering this act 
was just decided on a few hours before the show. 

Immediately following this performance came an ex- 
cellent satire on the radio qui-z programme. Chester played 
tlie part of the announcer very well and all the contestants 
displayed remarkable intelligence! 

Appropriate prizes for any winners (?) were made by 
some of the masters, who promised such things as super- 
cooled machine guns, and Chrysler cars. The "Mystery 
Voices" brought the house down, the first one saying 
"what in the name of ten thousand gum trees", and the 
second "Ita Missa Est". 


The Bigside "Bowery" was the main event of the 
entertainment and a great success. The plot revolved 
around two Hicks who came to the "big city", one of them 
Smith i, losing his money and his clothes, and returning 
home in nothing but a barrel. Hughes i with his extremely 
"feminine" shoulders was very impressive as a "Bowery 
Butterfly". However, the climax of the show came when 
the girls' chorus came prancing in singing "Ain't we 
sweet". Thompson i and Lawson were the best chorus 
girls, showing some professional legwork. 

The Bigside "Boys" put on an excellent show, and the 
applause they received was well merited due to the hard 
work that they had put into the rehearsals during the past 

The show and a very successful evening ended with 
the singing of "God Save The King". 

The School would like to thank all those who assisted 
behind the scenes; Mr. Maier and his hard working, but 
amply rewarded stage hands, Mrs. Maier and her fellow 
make-up artists, Brian Bogue, the electrician, and George 
Campbell who has been setting up the stage lighting for 
many years now. And from the Bigside Boys comes a 
special vote of thanks to Mrs. Hodgetts for her ingenuity 
and patience in the many rehearsals for the "Bowery". 

The programme follows: — 

(1) "You've Got to be a Football Hero". 

A. C. Brewer, P. A. Kelk, W. A. Seagram, P. R. 
Boughner, E. S. Stephenson, Coach and Chorus. 

(2) "Margie" Chorus. 

"Ma He's Making Eyes at Me". Solo— J. A. S. 
McGlennon, P. E. Pim, and Chorus. 

(3) "Betty Co-ed" Chorus. 

"All-Canadian Girl" — E. L. Clarke and Chorus. 

(4) "Varsity Drag" Chorus.

The Gun Clob 

After a very successful season last year, the Gun Club 
has been reorganized under the charge of Messrs. Arm- 
strong and Bishop. Chitty has been elected President and 
Palmer Secretary. 

Shoots are held on half -holidays or whenever a master 
is free to supervise. At present the lack of snow is making 
shooting rather costly. 


There is room for a great many more members in the 
club. The more members there are the less will be the 
personal expense for everyone involved. 

An Old Boy Returns 

Recently the School was privileged to receive a visit 
from Major A. D. Fisken and a subsequent half-holiday in 
his honour. Major Fisken is a prominent Old Boy of T.C.S. 
and a member of a family which has sent many boys to 
this School since its founding. 

Major and Mrs. Fisken had just celebrated their 30th 
wedding anniversary when they had dinner in the Hall on 
Thursday, December 2. Major Fisken gave a short talk 
in which he pointed out the necessity to respect authority 
and he gave examples from his own life. Major Fisken 
has had a career which has always been closely associated 
with the Army, including distinguished service in the First 
Great War for which he was awarded the Military Cross. 

We wish Major and Mrs. Fisken many more years of 
happy married life and hope that they may again visit 
T.C.S. in the near future. 


Life-saving this year has become more popular than 
ever before as approximately three-quarters of the School 
are taking life-saving tests this term. All New Boys are 
required to pass the Intermediate tests of the Royal Life- 
Saving Society, while the Bronze Medallion is optional; 
classes for the Silver Medal are being started. Most of 
the boys who already hold their intermediate certificates 
are trying their Bronze. Land drill is held in the Gjmi. on 
afternoons, while other parts of the work are held in the 
pool. Classes are conducted by Mr. Batt and Mr. Arm- 
strong; several of the older boys in the School are m 


charge of intermediate groups. In addition to land drill 
and swimmjjig, all candidates must have a general knowl- 
edge of life-saving, and of a few fundamentals of the 
fimctions of the human body. 

Since the building of the swimming pool, the School 
has required all boj^s to receive some life-saving instnic- 
tion. It is hoped that there will never be an accident in 
the pool, and life-saving will do much to prevent the poe- 
sibilitv of one. 

Cominents on Inspection Day 

The comments on the annual Inspection of the Cadet 
Coi-ps have been received from Air Force Headquarters. 
The display last year v/as evidently well received. Under 
the heading Ceremonial, Squadron, Flight and Rifle Drill 
we find the following comments: — "An excellent exhibi- 
tion - Rifle Drill particularly good - Squadron and Flight 
Drill very well executed on difficult surface." 

The gym. show was described as "an excellent display 
of gymnastics and calisthenics". 

And to top it all off the appearance, efficiency, and 
discipline of both officers and cadets was "excellent". 

We hope that this year's Inspection will be as success- 
ful in the eves of the Air Force Officers. 

Football Dinner 

At the dinner this year we were honoured to have with 
us Bob Masterson. coach of the Intercollegiate Champions 
from Toronto. Mr. Masterson brought along two films of 
the final games with Western which were shown after 
dinner. Seated at the head table with Mr. Masterson were 
Norman Seagram, President of the Toronto Branch of the 
O.B.A., Mr. Bill Seagram and most of the T.C.S. Old Boys 
on the Blues, Intermediates and the Soccer Teams of the 
University of Toronto this year. 


Menus prepared for the First Team by Brinckman 
and his Art Group informed us that for the dinner we 
were to have fried chicken and apple pie a la mode to- 
gether with all the other basic ingredients which go with 
them to make up a delicious meal. 

After the last plate had been cleared away, the Head- 
master arose to announce to everyone's joy that the 
speeches would be short. Following the speech by the Head- 
master in which he paid tribute to this year's team, the 
captain and the coach spoke briefly. Mr. Norman Seagram, 
and Bob Masterson then made a few very interesting re- 
marks. Mr. Seagram brought forth an old Football Dinner 
menu from many years back and read some of the auto- 
graphs on the back several of which turned out to be quite 
familiar ones. It seems that the coach in those days was 
our present Headmaster. 

Mr. Masterson evoked many laughs with his humorous 
football anecdotes and after his short talk he presented 
silver identification bracelets to half and first team foot- 
ball colours, a gift of some Old Boys. Mr. Masterson also 
presented the Kerr Trophy to Stratford, the Dunbar 
Russel Memorial Football to Martin ii and the Paterson 
Trophy to Cooper i. 

Following these presentations the movies were shown 
to a full Hall. They were intensely interesting, but it was 
unfortunate that the machine did not permit them to be 
shown in slow motion. Nevertheless, the evening was a 
great success and many thanks are due to the kitchen staff 
and Mrs. Wilkin and to Bob Masterson who gave us his 
valuable time to come to the dinner. 

Mr. and Mrs. Green 

Mr. and Mrs. Green came to the School on January 7 
to manage the tuck, where Miss Fick and Mrs. Wright had 
worked so efficiently before them. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Green have lived in Vancouver most of their lives, and 


moved to Toronto just last year. Mrs. Green has managed 
apartment houses, and doubtless this experience will help 
her in running the tuck. Mr. Green is an interior decorator 
and intends to do this work in the School, after his wife 
can get someone to help her. Mr. Green served in the 
Great World War, and seems to have had quite a varied 
and interesting life. The whole School extends their greet- 
ings to the Greens, and hope that they will have a long 
and happy stay at T.C.S. 

The New Bursar 

Last term we acquired a new Bursar in the person of 
Mr. Taylor. He succeeded Mr. Temple who left us at the 
beginning of the year. Mr. Taylor's friendly smile and 
willingness to help have already made him very popular 
with the boys. We wish him every success in his very 
trying job. 


As a pleasant change one evening, the fifth forms, 
and any others who wished to attend, were shown a movie 
on Meteorology, entitled "Flying the Weather Map". This 
movie was obtained through the courtesy of the R.C.A.F. 
and was well received. 

The film was excellently produced with a great deal 
of good movie technique, and as its title indicates, it showed 
the causes of various types of weather and the likely loca- 
tion of good and bad weather. 

The movie was divided into two parts; part one dealt 
with various types of fronts, pressure groups, and isobars 
and part two gave a very good explanation and diagram 
of how airplane flights are planned. 

The evening seemed to be well appreciated, and om- 
thanks go to Mr. Bishop who obtained the films and to 
Mackenzie and Chitty who showed them. All enjoyed 
them and those taking Meteorology gained useful informa- 
tion from the films. 


The Weather 

We have recently learnt from Government Scientists 
that in some parts of the Arctic the average temperature 
is thirteen degrees higher than it was fifty years ago. This 
moderation has been going on steadily for many years 
with profound effects. Straits can no longer be crossed 
on ice, fish are appearing in great numbers, the level of 
the sea has risen, there is unprecedented drought in some 
parts of Africa. Does this account for our peculiar winter? 

First Cliass Honours 

The following twenty-nine boys obtained first class 
honours in the Christmas examinations: I. H. D. Bovey, 
J. D. M. Brierley, J. F. Brinckman, I. B. Bruce, W. F. B.

Christinas Bonations 

The collection at the Carol Service was distributed as 
follows : — 

$25.00 was sent to the Dean of Christ Church Cathe- 
dral, Montreal, and his Social Service Workers devoted it 
to the assistance of two families who were in need. 

$25.00 was sent to the Rev. Terence Crosthwait, 
Rector of the Church of St. Alban the Martyr, in Toronto. 
Most of this contribution was given to the relief of a 
family where there are two young children and no mother. 
The father is not well off. Part of the donation was used 
for the benefit of the choir boys of St. Alban's Church. 


$25.00 was sent to the Neighborhood Workers Associa- 
tion and it was used to help two families in Toronto where 
there are five and four children, respectively. In the first 
family there is no father, and in the second family both 
parents are ill and unemployable. 

$25.00 was sent to the Social Service Convener of a 
church in Ottawa and it was used to equip boys from four 
families to take part in Cub activities. 

$25.00 was sent to Father Loosemore. Society of St. 
John the Evangelist, in Bracebridge. He used this dona- 
tion to give relief to an elderly woman in an outlying part 
of Muskoka who had been ill for some time. She has been 
removed to a hospital for a month's convalescence. 

$25.00 was sent to the Rector of St. Mark's Church. 
Port Hope, and was used to give food and necessities to 
needy families. 

$25.00 was sent to the Dean of Christ Church Cathe- 
dral, Hamilton. It was used to help a mother and three 
little children. The father is in a reformatory for a year 
and the mother is doing her best to support the family. 

$25.00 was given to the Salvation Army in Calgary. 
They used it for the relief of a War Veteran's family as 
his wife had been ill for a long time and he had used up 
all his savings for medical treatment. 

Political Science CInb 

The Political Science Club has again been organized 
by Mr. Hodgetts, and sixteen members of the sixth form 
are now engrossed in a study of the United Nations. After 
a brief discussion on the framework of the U.N., the club 
has been discussing world trouble spots in their application 
to world peace. 

The problems of China and South Eastern Asia have 
been examined in our last two fortnightly meetings and 
Palestine, India, and Europe are on schedule for the near 


A Party for Charles 

Shortly after the christening of the new Prince, Mrs. 
Ketchum kindy gave a tea for all those boys having 
"Charles" as one of their names. Ten boys and mastei^ 
attended and also friends of the School. A delightful time 
was had by everyone, and Mrs. Ketchum is to be thanked 
for her thoughtfulness and generosity. 

A New Fireplace for the Ski Camp 

Colonel C. S. Maclnnes, C.M.G., and his wife have 
always taken a keen interest in the School, and especially 
lately in the Pat Moss Ski Camp. Through their generosity 
a fireplace was built during the Christmas holidays in the 
bungalow. It is to serve as a further memorial to Pat 
Moss ('24-'31), one of our most promising Old Boys, who 
was killed tragically while attending Oxford University. 

The fireplace is built of field stone around a metal unit 
called a Heatolator. It adds greatly not only to the com- 
fort, but also to the general appearance of the camp. 

The School is tremendously grateful to Colonel and 
Mrs. Maclnnes for their wonderful gift. 

Visit of Mr. Wilson Macdonald 

On Friday, January 28, the School received a most 
welcome visit from Mr. Wilson Macdonald, the noted 
Canadian poet. Mr. Macdonald who visited the School 
four years ago, read and recited several of his poems, and 
gave a short talk on poetry. He pointed out that many 
youngsters dislike poetry because it is introduced as an 
academic subject. Mr. Macdonald felt, however, that they 
would really appreciate it if they realized that poetry is 
to be found on the playing field, in the waving of the trees, 
and especially in the great sport of skiing. The hills clad 
in winter garment, the dark fir trees standing out like 


etchings against the cold sky, the swish of the passing ski; 
this is poetry. Mr. Macdonald has long been a ski en- 
thusiast and in fact, one of his best poems which he read 
to the School is entitled "The Song of the Ski". 

Selections read by Mr. Macdonald were excerpts from 
his Bible edition of poems, "The Song of Creation", and 
•*For Jacob was the apple of his eye", "The Song of the 
Ski", "Ghost Hornpipes", and on the lighter side, some of 
his relmowned French Canadian Poetry, "Quatrains of 
Callendar", "Armand Dussault", and "M'sieu Johat". In 
"The Song of Creation", he was ably assisted by several 
members of the T.C.S. choir, who accompanied the poem 
with very effective chanting. Considering the boys had 
only a half hour's practice, they did very well. 

After the recital, Mr. Macdonald kindly agreed to 
answer a few questions about Canadian poetry and litera- 
ture. He does not think that Canada should develop a 
literary style of her own. He believes that literature 
should be universal without any national distinction. Mr. 
Macdonald's favourite poet of all times is Shakespeare, or 
perhaps one of the Romanticists, Keats. 

We are very grateful to Mr. Macdonald for visiting 
the School, and hope that he accepts the Headmaster's 
invitation to return in the near future. 

The Art Group 

The Art Group, and the third form art class, have a 
triple project before them this term. A Little Big Four 
Art Exhibit has been arranged, of which there will b^ 
more news; but at the moment, those boys interested in 
exhibiting their work are busy preparing their contribu- 

The second project is more formidable. Entirely new 
stage sets have to be painted for the Dramatic Society's 
production of "Charley's Aunt", which will be presented 
at the end of the term. Alex Hughes, who studied the 


operations of a professional theatre group doing "Charley's 
Aunt", is helping Mr. Key to direct this job. 

The third undertaking, a perennial problem, is the 
decorations for the School Dance. The Prefects, Seniors 
and Art Group are at loggerheads about the theme — how- 
ever this complication arises every year, so there is no 
cause for alarm. But as one can see, the artists of the 
School have a busy term ahead. 

New Privileges 

The Record and the School would like to congratulate 
the boys who have been made privileges since the last 
issue. They are: Prefects: Stratford, Taylor; Seniors: 
Huycke, Paterson ii, Little; House Officers: Doheny, Green- 
wood, Lawson, Moffitt, Smith, Stirling, Timmins, Welsford, 
Pahner, Robarts, and Bogue ii.

O EG AT £ S 


The subject for the night's debate was "Resolved that 
the United Nations should support the Jewish claims for 
Palestine as a national home". The Government was ably 
represented by Taylor i, Dignam, and Stratford, while the 
Opposition was composed of Paterson i, Maclaren, and 
Doheny. The debate was one of the best that we have 
had this year and it was very closely contested. 

All of the speakers were very good with Taylor and 
Doheny proving the most effective. One of the few critic- 
isms would be that some of the speakers were inclined to 
read from their notes too much. However, both the Opposi- 
tion and the Government showed that they had thoroughly 
studied the topic. Many points which were missed were 
rather hotly argued on the floor afterwards with about 
two-thirds of the House voting for the Government. 

After a brief reading of the titles of the various 
debaters by Paterson ii as speaker, the debating com- 
menced. Taylor spoke first for the government. He 
gave a brief history of the Jews up to date, and the various 
moral reasons why they should have a homeland. 

Paterson i opened the Opposition's side of the case, 
arguing that the Arabs have a greater population than the 
Jews and own more land; therefore why should they be 
forced to give it up? Dignam as second speaker for the 
Government stressed the practical advantages of a Jewish 
state; with Europe being so over populated, it would be a 
safe home for the Jews. Maclaren, who first supplied 


"comic relief" with his brief outline of the golf courses in 
Palestine, brought up several points in the policies of the 
U.N.. to support his more serious arguments. Stratford 
pointed out that the Jews would develop Palestine into a 
rich country. Doheny summed up the Opposition's case 
with a speech which tore holes in many of the arguments 
of the Government, while Taylor did the same for thci 
Government in his rebuttal. Contrary to the vote of the 
floor, the judges unanimously awarded the victory to the 


The third meeting of the Senior Debating Society took 
place to resolve "that comic books arc harmful to the teen- 
ager". Speaking for the Government v/ere Herridge, Mc- 
Donald, and Bovey, while the Opposition was composed of 
T^mmins. Fullerton and Ross i. Paterson i held the chair 
as speaker, and Mr. Maier acted as chairman of the judges, 
assisted by Taylor i and Dignam. The debate produced 
some excellent speeches, especially from the Opposition, 
but all contributed towards an interesting evening. The 
best speakers were Herridge and Ross i. Herridge opened 
for the Government and although he read his speech to 
some extent, he clearly pointed out that reading comics 
resulted in a waste of time. Timmins i then spoke for the 
Opposition and in an amusing speech he showed that the 
"animal" comics bore a strong resemblance to the Mother 
Goose stories. The subject of crime comics was taken up 
by McDonald who stated that these would lead only to 
criminal ideas. Fullerton who spoke second for the Opposi- 
tion reached the high-point of his speech when he illus- 
trated that reading comic-books was a form of relaxing 
entertainment. Bovey closed for the Government with a 
continued picture of the evils of crime comics, their effect 
on teen-agers and a possible solution to the problem. The 
last speaker for the Opposition was Ross i who showed 


that although the historical and classical comics were badly 
written, they often encouraged teen-agers to read the 
book from which the condensation was made. 

The judges awarded the debate to the Opposition and 
in the division of the House the Opposition again triumphed 
over the Government. We agree with the division, for 
although the Government made many good points, the 
Opposition also did this and then rebutted many of the 
best points which the Government had put forward. 


On Friday, January 21, the School Hall was the scene 
of the first T.C.S. inter-school debate with U.C.C. Both 
teams were in excellent form and if the School maintains 
the superiority it held on this occasion it will come through 
with a winning season. 

One fault which might be found was that two speakers 
had difficulty in explaining their points. They sounded to 
a g^eat extent as if they were merely reading their notes. 
But on the other hand everyone spoke clearly, without the 
unnecessary distracting movements which often accom- 
pany a debater before a large group. 

The School is very grateful to Messrs. Thompson 
and Hogel from Port Hope and Mr. Irvine from Cobourg 
who acted as judges. 

The first speaker was Stevenson of the Government, 
the best for U.C.C. Going back into history, he pointed 
out that co-education was first introduced on a large scale 
in 1850 in America. Since all concerned were pleased with 
this system, it survived. However, its main advantage 
over segregated schools, then and now, is that it does not 
stereotype students. Stevenson claimed that schools of 
one sex tend to turn students out on a "mass-production" 
basis while co-education, with its broader social and dom- 
estic outlook does not. Coon, the second speaker for the 


Government followed up his colleague's points, showing 
that a boy or girl in a family having only one or two 
children finds it difficult to associate and mix with the 
opposite sex, because of lack of contact with them. How- 
ever, co-education solves this problem, by bringing boys 
and girls together in the class-room. 

The third speaker for U.C.C. was Carson. He pointed 
out that in a co-educational school, manners were naturally 
improved, because of the presence of the opposite sex. He 
added that knowledge and understanding of this opposite 
sex which in later life prove invaluable, could readily be 
acquired in a mixed school. 

Paterson i opened for the Opposition in a speech that 
was well constructed. He said that since boys and girls in 
later years would lead a completely different type of life, 
it was foolish to educate them in the same way, with the 
same curriculum. Girls needed subjects such as Home 
Economics, and the introduction of this and other extra 
classes for girls in co-educational schools marks the be- 
ginning of the breakdown of the mixed school system. 

Paterson ii spoke next for T.C.S., and in an amusing 
speech said that even though boys and girls might prefer 
co-education, this may not necessarily be good for them. 
His main example of this point was the higher standard 
of discipline in segregated schools. This vital factor in 
everyone's education was sadly lacking in mixed schools. 
He pointed out that France, which has the best secondary 
school system in the world, does not have co-education. 
Taylor i was the last speaker for the Opposition. Follow- 
ing up his colleagues' remarks that co-education tended to 
influence women into taking men's jobs, he stated that 
women belonged in the home, to raise and train children. 
Since most of a child's education is received from the ages 
of 1-7, the mother should not be at the office or factory, 
but she should be at home training her children. 

WhUe the judges retired to make their decision, some 
very good remarks from the House were made by Croll, 


Baker, Pierce. VandenBergh and Slater. When Doheny. 
the Speaker, called for a division of the house, the Opposi- 
tion received a majority of seventeen, obtaining sixty-five 
votes to the Government's forty-eight. When the judges 
returned Mr. Hogel announced that T.C.S. had been given 
the decision. He pointed out that the School team had 
elaborated its points more clearly. The best speakers of 
the evening were Taylor i, Paterson ii and Stevenson. We 
wish to congratulate both sides on an excellent debate. 


The motion of the second debate of the Junior De- 
bating Society was "Resolved that popular music is of 
more value to teen-agers than classical music". Debating 
for the Government were Armstrong, Osier, and New- 
comb; while the Opposition was composed of Domville. 
Levey, and Gordon. 

Armstrong stated that popular music was popular 
because it is generally liked, and it provides entertainment 
and amusement. Domville, the first speaker for the 
Opposition, put forward the idea that popular music has 
no real substance or value while classical works are time- 
honoured, they demand concentration, and thereby help 
the mind and add to the character. Osier for the Govern- 
ment said that we are not mature enough for classical 
music, but that we must build up to it through popular 
works, these latter being more in style and less expensive. 
Levey brought out the fact that popular music contains 
only the bare essentials of rhythm and tone, while classical 
pieces have intricately woven themes and rhythms. New- 
comb, speaking for the Government, stated that popular 
music is not only more enjoyable but, being active, fits in 
with the active life we lead. Gordon said that classical 
works are an essential part of our culture, and also summed 
up his colleagues' points. Armstrong in the Government's 
rebuttal, brought out the fact that the average mentality 


being thirteen years of age, mentally it is impossible to 
expect teen-agers to appreciate classical music, and he 
summed up the points for the Government. 

An overwhelming majority of the house favoured the 
Opposition, and the Chairman of the Judges, after naming 
Levey and Gordon as the best speakers, also gave a 
decision in favour of the Opposition. 


The first Junior Debate this term v/as held on the 
29th of January. The motion before the House was: 
Resolved that the modem system of advertising is harm- 
ful to society. Gordon presided over the meeting and the 
judges were Black, Paterson ii, and Taylor i. Upholding 
the affirmative were Slater, FitzGerald and Smith ii, while 
the negative was composed of Seymour, Denny, and Ket- 

For the affirmative. Slater and Smith pointed out how 
harmful modem advertising is to the radio, while Fitz- 
gerald showed its bad effects on the press. Slater spoke 
excellently despite the fact that he had few points. 

Seymour was the first to speak for the negative and 
he brought up some very good points in favour of modem 
advertising, especially in the newspaper. Denny the second 
speaker concentrated on radio and also brought out 
some very good points. Ketchum summed up his side's 
points and rebutted a number of the Government's. 

Slater made a good rebuttal and then the House was 
thrown open. After some excellent speeches from the 
floor, the House divided in an overwhelming majority of 
40-7 in favour of the Opposition. However when the judges 
returned they gave the decision to the Government. Slater 
and Smith ii were named the best speakers of the evening. 






Monsieur MacDonald to school he came, 
He is a poet of very great fame. 
Concerning poetry they took his advice, 
And Brent House tried to write something nice. 

It's taken them many months, 
Now nearly four, 
To tell us what's what 
Behind their door. 

In Bethune we've written three separate notes 
With poems, songs, and anecdotes. 
But they've never gone in, because Brent they play, 
While about themselves there's little to say. 

And so for the fourth time I take up my pen 
To write to the boys in the Bethune House den. 
But apologies first must all be given 
To those who in this house are livin'. 



In our top dorm they are characters all, 
And their tidiness would the Brent boys appal. 
To turn out their lights we find quite a pleasure 
And H.O.'s fight to do it in their leisure. 

Led by McCaughey, they never talk, 
*Cept Reford and Hunt who in their sleep walk. 
And Christie who cleans his knife in the dark 
While McCullagh brings the "Globe" up to mark. 

On middle flat we have Robarts and Cox, 
The former's our rocket, the latter must box. 
Piggie Bate we find long-haired and lean. 
And here lives our Mexican jumping bean. 

Our journey ends on the flat we all know, 

Where the boys operate, with Brem, Shmoo and Bo. 

Bo is the bouncer, Shmoo is not small, 

But Brem is the B. T. O. of them all. 

The seniors are all of a pious mode, 
With every god in a separate abode. 
Huycke is the founder of this church. 
Invented to bring "sleepy Don" from his lurch. 

Chuck is our heretic, who sells candles in twos, 
While Bunny and Des sing chorales of blues. 
But we don't see so much of these latter buddies, 
As they now spend their evenings in B «& C studies. 

And last but not least is th' eternal spirit, 
Johnnie the Deadman. who a mention doth merit. 
His tales and experiences as a caddy out west. 
Where John lost no time in reviving (?) the best. 



As all good poems an epilogue rate, 
We feel we must keep our notes up to date. 
Herridge and McDonald have come to find 
That Einstein's Theory is years behind. 

While Willie with camera will reveal 

Shots that when censored have no appeal. 

But although with this house we can find no fault, 

Sooner or later all good things must halt. 

So in closing we'd just like to quietly confess, 
That Ross and Heard are a cinch for the Chess. 
And to all those who read this far and don't know it, 
Paterson ii has resigned as a poet.

Most likely you have gone through the same ex- 
perience as I have when driving through Western Ontario. 
Every little while a large red truck is sighted, and when 
it goes roaring past you can't help but see the large sign 
"John Labatt Limited" on the side. 

The President and Vice-President of this well-known 
company in London, Ontario - Canada's "Forest City" - are 
two brothers, John and Hugh Labatt. Both of them entered 
T.C.S., before the turn of the century. 

John, the elder brother, entered T.C.S., in 1891 and 
left in 1896, shortly after his sixteenth birthday. He had 
an eventful time at the School as there were three fires 
while he was there. The first two were not very serious, 
but the third, which occurred in mid-winter, resulted in the 
total destruction of the School. As a result of this fire, 
all the boys lived in the town of Port Hope for the rest 
of the year. They were accommodated in the St. Lawrence 
Hotel and also across the street in a place called the 
Academy. The boys vied with one another for accom- 
modation in the Academy which was run by a Mr. Night- 
ingale who was one of the most popular masters at the 

When John and Hugh were at the School the Old Tuck 
Shop was operated by Mrs. Philp. It was situated on the 


road to Lake Ontario, to the east and south of the School. 
In those days an apple pie and a pitcher of thick cream 
cost only ten cents, and if one wanted hot roast chicken, 
Mrs. Philp would produce it on short notice. Life at the 
School in those days certainly had its compensations. 

John patronized the gym. probably more than any of 
the younger boys, and in addition he played cricket, foot- 
ball and tennis, but owing to an injury to his foot, did not 
participate in hockey to any extent. At that time the best 
School teams were always the cricket teams. They were 
coached by a professional and had much more time to 
practise as the school year did not end until July. 

In those days the sanitary conveniences at the School 
were rather primitive, to say the least. The Saturday night 
bath consisted of a few pails of hot and cold water. It 
was taken in an old metal and wood-rimmed bath-tub. 
These were situated in outbuildings. This is a great con- 
trast from the School today with its modem showers and 
an unlimited supply of hot water. 

After leaving the School, John went to McGill and 
graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Science. In 1911 
he was made Vice-President of John Labatt Limited and 
in 1915 he became President of the Company. John is a 
director of the Queen Alexandra Sanatorium in Byron, 
Ontario. He is also a member of the Art Museum board 
of the London Public Library. 

Hugh Labatt was at T.C.S., from 1898 to 1901. Pre- 
vious to entering the School, he went to Lakefield as there 
was no Junior School at T.C.S. in those days. He was 
captain of the football and hockey teams and was a mem- 
ber of the first XI. Most of the teams were fairly good, 
even though, as is still the case, the School always fielded 
the youngest and lightest teams. 

At present Hugh is Vice-President of John Labatt 
Limited and of the Superior Transportation and Shipping 
Company. He was controller of the Canada Brass and 
Supply Company from 1905 to 1907. He is also a Director 


of the Brewers' Warehousing Company Limited which has 
its head office in Toronto. In the First Great War, Hugh 
enlisted as a gunner in the Seventy-Ninth Battery, R.C.A.. 
and was later with the Canadian Army Expeditionary 
Force in Siberia. He is an Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel 
of the Seventh Medium Regiment, R.C.A. 

Hugh has been a member of the Governing Body of 
T.C.S., for a number of years. As chairman for Western 
Ontario in the War Memorial Fund campaign, he not only 
gave generously himself, but was instrumental in obtaining 
a very considerable sum in contributions from other Old 
Boys in his district. 

The Labatt brothers are two of the School's most 
prominent and most faithful Old Boys, and to them the 
School owes much.

As we enter the library, the home of intellect and 
scholarship, we find eager students joyfully absorbing the 
finest works of Plato and Aristotle, while in one comer we 
see an eager student enjoying some of the more difficult 
portions of Einstein theory. Suddenly this congenial 
atmosphere is broken by a soft, purring voice; "Umm, your 
book is one day overdue, and accordingly your fine is now 
6.02 X 10^^ dollars, and must be paid at once." Thus we 
are introduced to Mr. Maier, the efficient head of the 
School's library. 

Before the arrival of this esteemed personage in 1936, 
the library was, to say the least, a bit of a shambles. Un- 
daunted by this, he set to work, and to-day T.C.S. boasts 
one of the best secondary school libraries in the countrj'. 
Of course, Mr. Maier is not entirely responsible for this 
change. The daily nmning is largely the responsibility of 
the librarians, who vary in number each year from three 
to five. Such matters as replacing books on the shelves 


and looking after periodicals are their jobs, while Mi-. 
Maier concerns himself with more important matters, and 
generally supervises their work. 

Certain aspects of the library are a complete mystery 
to the ordinary mortal. No one ever seems to be quite 
able to figure out what the little number on the back of 
the book means. The answer, courtesy of Mr. Maier, is 
tJiat the books are catalogued by what is known as the 
Dewc}'^ decimal system. There are ten main divisions, 
such as Religion, Literature and History. Each book, 
except for light fiction, is given a number from one to a 
thousand, and as many as ten decimal places after it. This 
system works very well, but every now and then there are 
some peculiarities. One would hardly expect to find "The 
Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag" in the Fine Arts 
section, and we are assured that this is not just a mistake. 
In the "Useful Arts" section we find a book called 
"Alchemy" — doubtless a very useful art if you can do it. 

T.C.S. not only boasts one of the best secondary school 
libraries, but one of the larger ones as well. At the exact 
moment of writing there were a total of 8,370 books. If 
the space were available there would be something over 
ten thousand books, but it is hoped that after the Memorial 
Chapel is completed there vvill be more spacious quarters 
available for the library. A very valuable gift of books 
came from the library of Sir William Osier, and Old Boys 
gave others in memory of J. L. Miller, a former master. 
Among the library's oddities we find a work of Ben Jon- 
son's printed at London in 1631. There is also a book 
containing some thirty pressed New Zealand ferns, com- 
plete with Latin names. In addition to books written in 
English there are also Latin, Greek, Spanish, German and 
Italian Books. Although these books are rarely read, 
they look very impressive on the shelves and add an air 
of culture, lacking in the "Dave Dawson" books beside 

At this moment we again hear that soft, purring 
voice; "So your fine is still unpaid. Ite Missa Est, and 
don't come back again." So taking this gentle hint, we 


graciously retire, leaving the library in the capable hands 
of Mr. Maier. — w. Henidge. vi Sch. 


It is a fundamental principle of any educational in- 
stitution that the pupil should be given a certain amount 
of responsibility to fit him for the future. For this reason, 
since its innovation at the famous English school, Rugby, 
many years ago, the prefectorial system has been in vogue 
in a large number of private schools the world over. It 
has been a part of T.C.S. since our founding in 1865, and 
is still an important feature of our School life. 

It is important at any school that the student should 
have some voice in the operation of the school. At some 
institutions, notably High Schools, a School Council or 
Executive alone represents the school and keeps discipline. 
It is true that we have a school council, which is indeed an 
excellent thing, but we also have several prefects, whose 
views should be more or less in line with their school- 
fellows, and who can voice those views at any time. 

At a boarding school especially, there are many jobs 
to be done, and discipline has to be maintained. A great 
deal of work is taken out of the hands of the masters by 
the prefects, who do the jobs such as drilling the cadet 
corps and disciplining the New Boys. Is it possible that 
the second chore is a more welcome one? It is only fair 
that in view of their many responsibilities that the pre- 
fects should have some special privileges, such as the use 
of their own common room, and permission to study in 
their own rooms during study periods. These privileges, 
among others, are theirs, and they have never been abused. 

The prefectorial system is one bit of T.C.S. tradition 
which still remains, and therefore it must obviously be 
popular, or it would have been removed during the course 
of the last eighty years. Both the staff and the student 
body have always foimd it efficient and practical and it 
seems that it may well remain a part of T.C.S. forever.

(The Prize Winning Essay by C. M. Taylor) 
As members of the coming generation, some day we 
shall inherit the world. The kind of world we'd like to 
mherit is one in which every man receives enough food, 
clothing and shelter in exchange for whatever contribution 
he can make to the good of his community. This is the 
World We Want. How close is it to the world as it stands 

It seems very distant. In many parts of the globe 
men and women are starving. Floods, drought and the 
devastation of war take their yearly toll. There seems 
little hope that they shall not continue to do so, year after 
year, generation after generation. Can they ever be 
stopped? Can we ever rebuild? 

It is not an easy task. Slowly and painfully we must 
replace the lost earth, nourish the desert. We must per- 
form again and again those miracles which a few brave 
men have done through the ages, to make deserts fertile, 
and swamplands into rich wheatfields. In former ages 
this colossal work would have been beyond the scope of 
man's powers, but finally, by Herculean efforts, he has 
advanced to a stage where it seems possible. A tremendous 
effort is required of man. but the end is at least within his 


But this job is not for the peoples of the devastated 
lands themselves to perform. It is for all mankind. The 
poor cannot rebuild a new world of themselves, they must 
also have the help of the rich. The fortunate nations must 
be prepared to shoulder that part of the burden which 
threatens to overcome the unfortunate. 

Yet these nations, although surrounded by potent 
evidences of the sorry plight of their neighbours, remain 
not yet fully awake to their duty. The citizens of these 
lands are not yet prepared to undergo any personal sacri- 
fices for the sake of new world order. And this is hardly 
surprising. They have remained relatively untouched by 
the world conflict that laid waste so many countries. Their 
background has been, for the most part, one of isolation, 
of vigorous youth and independence. They cannot submit 
easily to the restrictions thrust upon them by their new 
responsibility. Direct aid to the devastated nations is to 
them a colossal new step. A tremendous task of education 
lies before the builders of this new world order. And after 
education, one of transport, distribution, organization, to 
bring this very necessary aid to the countries that need it. 

At the moment, a World Organization is struggling 
through the embryonic stages of its existence. Let it con- 
cern itself primarily, therefore, for the sake of its own 
survival as well as that of the world, not with futile bicker- 
ings between jealous nations, but with this very important 
work of rehabilitation. Much time and effort has been 
wasted already trying to compromise with nations whose 
ideas are as far from compromise as the Nazis, and whose 
conception of the ideal world is totally different from ours. 
Let us now spend our energj'^ putting our own house in 
order, before we try to bend another's to our way of think- 
ing. Why bandy words with a few skilled and ruthless 
diplomats when many more worthy men are dying of 

The World Organization should bend its utmost energy 
to this great task of opening the eyes of the rich peoples 


to their duty by every means possible — radio, cinema, 
newspapers — and of helping them perform it — in the col- 
lection, transport, and wise distribution and use of their 
aid. Great work remains to be done in this field, and great 
progress could be effected. Let us then, as World Citizens, 
turn our minds to it. 

Once the first crisis has been averted, and some decent 
standard of living extended to most parts of the globe, it 
should be the work of the World Organization to main- 
tain this standard. In the great flow of World Commerce, 
each area should be assured its fair share. Every part of 
the world has some virtue, some wealth to offer for the 
common good, be it food, clothing or maniifacture. Then 
isn't it good business as well as just procedure that each 
part should receive its share of the necessities of life in 
exchange for its contribution? Definite rules of trade 
should be adopted, and the ruthless exploitation of one 
area by another should in some way be prevented. One 
nation should not be allowed to feed on the life-blood of 
another, and buy prosperity at the expense of human 

And even more unportant, perhaps, than the preven- 
tion of economic exploitation is the prevention of cultural 
exploitation. The powerful nations of the world should 
not be allowed to inflict their ideas and their customs on 
the weak nations. They should not be allowed to use their 
wealth and influence to buy out the culture of their poorer 
neighbours for a few dollars. The nations of the world 
should co-operate, but they should not allow themselves to 
become stereotyped ; they should not allow that great diver- 
sity which is the beauty of our Earth and the basis of our 
progress to disappear. 

The establishment of a fair balance of trade and a 
minimum standard of living for all would be but the be- 
ginning of the great work facing mankind. But it would 
be an important and decisive beginning. One of the prin- 
cipal causes of war in all ages, and particularly in this ago. 


has been the desire, or very often the necessity, for in- 
creased prosperity. The last two great world wars are an 
excellent example of this. The first, viewed now in the 
sober light of history, appears as a grand war of im- 
perialism, in which two sets of allied world forces came 
to a showdown over an issue which they felt they could 
solve no other way. The second, though the embers of 
the hate which it aroused are still burning, yet appears to 
stem from the age-old desire of the Germans to expand in 
Central Europe to accommodate their growing population. 
Of all the half-crazed conceptions of Nazi dogma, that of 
"Lebensraum", living space, seems to take precedence. 
With the removal of flagrant inequalities of prosperity 
between the different areas of the world, the dangers of 
war would be greatly decreased. And much of the v^eight 
behind Totalitarian governments and oppressive measures 
of all kinds, which stem to a great extent from the fears 
and ambitions of nations for aggressive v/ar, would dis- 

But more important even than these great advantages, 
would be the fact that all humanity, for the first time in 
history, would have enough to eat, enough clothes to w^ear, 
and a decent shelter over their heads. That ideal, for 
which great men have been struggling for ages, would at 
last be realized. The battle for survival would finally be 
won, and man would turn to find and fulfil that destiny 
which he has always felt to be his, but which he has never 
been able to grasp. This is the World We Want. It is 
DOW within reach. Let us seize it. 


Oh night! Oh wondrous Stygian veil! 
What terror does your blackness hide? 
Your singing, partly mellowed wail, 
Filling the shaded sky with wind. 


Oh night! What lies beneath your somber shroud? 
What lurks when warmth and light are gone? 
What shapes that whisper now are heard, 
As spectres call and then pass on ? 

Oh night! Oh shadow on the world of light, 
What beings roam at your command? 
What stalks on endlessly and out of sight, 
Unwary travellers in this enthralled land? 

Oh night! Beneath your murky mantle spread, 
Lie spirits wandered from their musty lair, 
Keeping a gloomy vigil with the dead, 
While rayless skies look on in mute despair.

Boarding schools like T.C.S. play a large part in the 
development of a country. This is because they are ex- 
clusively the educational centres and training grounds of 
the youths born to those families occupying the upper 
middle and the wealthy classes. Naturally the heads of 
these families upon whose prominent shoulders rest the 
main burden of running countries like Canada and the 
United States, v/ish to give their sons the best education 
possible so that they will have the qualities necessary to 
carry considerable responsibility. 

Most good boarding schools of to-day measure up to 
this mark excellently; but in doing so, are they injuring 
the most treasured gift of man — his creative ability? It 
would be unfair to address this question to boarding 
schools only. Throughout most of Canada and the United 
States to-day, the same conservative and narrow viewpoint 
is being held by educational authorities. Boarding schools, 
however, sometimes seem to emphasize the injury. In 
public schools, students have not such a rigid time-table 



and such an ordered, disciplined life as at boarding school. 
A boy can get away from the school influences, can widen 
his relationships and interests, expand and move in circles 
fitting his taste. If he has creative instincts or is of a 
meditative turn of mind, he will have more freedom and 
increased time to develop these traits independently of 
school. At boarding school he is continually with the same 
people, in the same environment and he is liable to be 
pressed into a mould. 

I am not saying that boys with rare qualities do not 
appear, nor am I saying that one boy does not rise above 
another; far from it. In moral, intellectual or social 
qualities there is v/ide divergence. But have the boarding 
schools the same chance to produce great men of the arts 
(musicians, painters, sculptors), or men of letters (poets, 
novelists), or thinkers or social reformers? All the 
attainments which require intense cultivation of the spirit 
are inclined to be subdued. 

Freud, the father of psychology, believed that there 
was a driving force behind the actions and thoughts of 
mankind. He thought that this force was the sex instinct. 
However, since his time ideas have changed. The intense 
cultivation of the science of psychoanalysis has led its fol- 
lowers (the majority of them) to believe that the creative 
instinct, which is the struggle of the spirit, the soul, the 
ego, to reveal itself in some tangible medium, is the com- 
pelling motive of all human actions. This may be seen 
very clearly in young children. They are interested in 
everything. All enjoyment in life for them comes from 
doing something. The finished product is irrelevant. One 
of the strangest sights to adults is to see some beaming 
four-year-old spend half an hour building a house of blocks 
and then, with equal enthusiasm, destroying it. 

In human beings the wish to create, though perhaps 
not realized, is always there. The spirit of man, the part 
of him which we call "I" is always trying to reveal itself. 
However, in the process of educating the minds of children 


and adolescents so that the youth will be able to express 
himself, too often the object is forgotten. Stereotyped and 
uninspired education destroys and smothers imagination 
and inspiration. This is one of the fundamental divergences 
between the Greek and Roman peoples. It is a striking 
fact that all the great thinkers and artists were men who 
were able to broaden out and see for themselves. They 
were able to develop their abilities either by probing the 
depths of themselves or by making the most of others. 

Schools are not really the cause of this failure. They 
are victims of the educational system. Due to the narrow 
limits of the examination requirements, the evils of stodg^y, 
fact-cramming education wreaks its full havoc. The true 
value of thought is never really stressed and the habit of 
reading books, other than light novels, is at a pitifully low 
ebb. Thus the current conversation in schools runs on a 
monotonous, unvarying cycle, unrelieved by the influence 
of any fresh or original ideas. In fact, if anybody even 
starts to think seriously or to create with any originality 
he is liable to be smitten with the curse of "highbrow". 
Thus our schools will continue to produce good, com- 
fortable, leading citizens, but seldom men who will really 
add to the world's treasures of past and future.

It was a warm, almost oppressive June day. The sun 
was approaching its zenith, and I, unable to rest contented 
within my hotel rooms, had decided to venture across town 
a few blocks to visit an old friend and former college com- 
panion, Mr. Parkarus. Not having seen him since our 
class reunion nine years ago, I was looking forward to 
meeting him again. I was especially interested in him be- 
cause he had always been somewhat neurotic, and perhaps 
eccentric in his attitude toward his personal appearance 
and behaviour. 


As I walked along the blistering pavement I heard the 
shrill, raucous voice of a newspaper vendor coming to me 
from a nearby corner. 

"Mysterious Murder in Eai'ly Morning," he bellowed. 
"Police Mystified — No Clues in Breadman Slaying." Such 
were the glaring headlines as I bought a paper to read 
about the case. 

Just as the news-vendor had recited, this v/as one 
murder in which the police had no idea where to begin — 
or so they had told the nev/spaper reporters. The body of 
a bread salesman had been found beside his wagon early 
that morning. He had been choked to death, and there 
Vv'as evidence that a struggle must have taken place. The 
plot of this murder seems to have been steeped in even 
more mystery by the absence of any obvious motive except 
one of robbery — which is made ludicrous because no money 
was taken — however, as the breadman had only just begun 
his route, the police have found that several loaves of bread 
were taken by the murderer! 

"Quite a case!" I thought. "What could possibly have 
happened?" Then the story slipped out of my mind as I 
continued my walk. 

When I arrived at Mr. Parkarus' apartment, he opened 
the door attired in a silk dressing gown, trousers and 
slippers. His hair was merely half-combed, his face un- 
shaven and creases of worry streaked his forehead. 

"George Croney!" he exclaimed. "Why, you old son 
of a gun! When did you come into town?" He beckoned 
me into his sitting room, which was messy and strewn with 
various ornaments and periodicals. 

"Pardon the state of affairs in my 'umble abode, 
George; I'm afraid I haven't cleared up things yet this 

"I recognize it as the homey atmosphere, Parkie. My 
hotel rooms are always spick and span everywhere I go; 
I get rather sick and tired of it." I could not help bringing 
my attention to bear on his fatigued and worried expres- 


"What the devil's the matter with you, Parkie?" 

"Please don't ask me that - oh - oh - God! - I may as 
well say - I have to tell someone. Last night I had a 
terrible nightmare. I dreamed I was walking down a street 
when a man accosted me — a strange, uniformed creature 
— dressed like one of Hell's guards — or so it seemed. I 
resisted his efforts to stop me, and grasped him around 
the throat. In an instant my dream vanished . . . . " 

"And that was all?" 

"No. No. This is what I am so worried about. I 
woke up in a cold sweat, as I was getting into bed. I was 
dressed only in my pyjamas and my dressing-gown — no 
shoes or slippers. I had been sleepwalking! In all my 
life of troubles, George, even in my college days, I have 
never sleepwalked ! Heaven only knows what I did or where 
I went!" 

"You have no idea?" 

"None. What worries me is this: I've read that sleep- 
walkers should never be stopped or they may become 
violent. My dream, George, my dream." 

"Tell me this, quick!" I gasped, as a flash of terror 
struck my brain. "Were you carrying anything when you 
woke up?" 

He shook his head. For a moment I was relieved. 
Then — 

"Good Lord! Parkie, what's that on the floor — 
there!" I pointed suddenly. 

"Breadcrumbs, George, only breadcrumbs."

The long, low shoreline muses 

On grey water, the vigU 

Of a thousand years 

Forgotten, buried in that other remembrance. 

Lights of stars in the astral night. 

The air is filled with quick moments 

In eternity, suspended on spreading wings. 



The sudden quest of birds. 

The cry of a gull. 

Trumpets in the wilderness, 

The call for a mate, 

The searching for the law within the law 

Muffled by grey water. 

Grey water laps the hull, 

The oarlocks groan quietly 

Stilled agony .... 

The cry is gone, 

The gaping throat remains, 

Captured in the slow rumble 

Of the whirling world, 

The thin veil of summer's dust 

Rising, carrying me on 

To another facet 

Of reality.

There are few developments of modem science which 
find their way into so many branches of knowledge and 
everyday life as radio, or more correctly, electronics. Dur- 
ing the war we heard such terms ar radar, radio altimeters, 
sonor, and magnetic mine detectors, and just after it such 
terms as FM, television, and microwaves. In our life 
around us, the radio public address systems, long distance 
telephone and telegraph, and talking movies all depend on 
electronics. Many new applications are being designed 
every day to cope with the new problems with which thia 
machine age confronts us. 

The whole study of electronics has become so wide 
that one could study any one of a score of different 
branches and in a lifetime he would not have exhausted 
its endless possibilities. It can be an exacting science or 
part-time hobby. Despite its seeming complexities, the 
basic principles may be found in any matriculation Physics 
book, and with a thorough knowledge of these, one could 
quickly pick up much about the subject. As a hobby one 
could construct several sets from plans, with little technical 
knowledge, and get satisfactory results. A more ambitious 
person with several books on advanced theory can design 
circuits for special applications and solve many problems 
which arise. A degree of interest helps the picking up of 
additional knowledge and soon one has a good understand- 
ing of the subject. 

Radio grows on you. It has a fascinating lure all its 
own. There is something about the amazing things it can 
do which adds to the real thrill of creation, and arouses 
and keeps a strong, vital interest in the subject. You 
would find that this interest makes it easy to pick up new 
knowledge and reduces the tedium of tracking down some 
insoluble trouble. Building a device to open the garage 
doors, besides being interesting while in the stages of con- 
struction, leads to further experimentation, and it is while 
fooling around with such devices that further discoveries 
are made. 


Radio has its troubles and its limitations, and a firm 
understanding of these is as necessary to an experinienter 
as a knowledge of practical theory. In sound systems, for 
instance, high fidelity depends on several factors. Yciu 
ears can discern musical notes through the vast range from 
twenty-seven up to about 16,000 or 17,000 vibrations per 
second. Natural-sounding music requires the reproduc- 
tion of at least 40 or 50 up to 10,000 vibrations per second. 
Several things limit this; pickups respond more loudly to 
lower vibrations than high, speakers are usually limited in 
irequencj' range, and due to various electrical effects in 
the amplifier, high frequencies "leak" away. Besides this 
the amplifier must not distort when it is operating at a 
natural-sounding volume level. This calls for an extra 
reserve of volume, and of course better quality speakers, 
transformers, and more carefully developed amplifiers. 
The hum v/hich it picks up from motors or alternating 
current must be blocked off, for an amplifier which amp- 
lifies dov;n to fifty cycles can pick up this interference. A 
speaker which is not built into a specially designed cabinet 
will resonate, that is. it will reproduce one frequency better 
than others. Even a pickup arm which is not properly 
designed may resonate in this way under such high-fidelity 
requirements. It takes careful design and careful con- 
struction to obtain results which do the amplifier justice. 
The exacting side of this has its interest too if one under- 
stands what he is trying to do. 

K you have plenty of time, money, and patience, here 
is a hobby which will keep you awake long hours into the 
night with the smell of burned rosin filtering through the 
room. Forget about the tube you dropped on the floor 
and the coil that came unravelled. Attack the problem 
with renewed vigor tomorrow, for in this world geniuses 
are made, not bom.

Yesterday I met an Indian prince. He was fairly 
handsome, and swarthy, with a copperish skin. He had 
married a very attractive American whom he had met at 
the Harvard Law School. He told me that all he knew 
of his early history v/as that at the age of fourteen he ran 
away from his aunt in Palampur. In Calcutta he joined 
an Irish regiment and became a batman to an officer. Two 
years later he met an American missionary. To the mis- 
sionary's astonishment, he could speak and write excellent 
English. The missionary finally convinced him he should 
go to Boston and live with a rich sister to attend school. 
In Boston he completed high school with honour standing 
and went to law school. On graduating he became a 
solicitor with one of the better Boston law firms. Knowing 
only that his first name was Akaba, he adopted the sur- 
name Creighton. 

To try to establish his real identity, he wrote to the 
main papers of India, hoping to make a connection with 
someone who could supply the missing links in his life. 

When he told me this, I asked him if he had received 
an answer. Removing an envelope from his brief case he 
showed me this: 

Magdalen Hotel, 
Cairo, Egypt, 

Feb. 19, 1936. 
My dear Akaba, 

I am growing old and am not long for this world, so 
I send you this letter hoping you will have pity on me, a 

I saw your statement in a Madras English newspaper, 
and have for the past three years kept it hoping to write 
to you. My life being at the threshold of a new world, I 
realized the time had come. 

In 1883 I was a British Army captain with a Wessex 
infantry regiment stationed outside of Madras. I had 
married into Indian nobility and had a very beautiful prin- 


cess as my wife. A child was bom, but I never saw or 
heard of it. 

I began to drink too much, and gradually lost control 
of myself. 

On Christmas eve of 1884, I was brought to my com- 
manding officer, who had a warrant out for my arrest. 
Signed affidavits by five native officers, stating that I had 
been using opium at a party, were in the hands of the 
Brigadier. I had been at the party, it mentioned, but I 
had not touched any drug, and only drank a little. This 
was a serious offense in the army, because if the punish- 
ment were light, a large number of other men would 
succumb to this dreaded drug. As soon as I found the 
judge in the trial was to be the Brigadier, himself a native, 
I saw that my chances of freedom had practically vanished. 

When I was sentenced to five years in a Calcutta 
prison, by a biased court, I knew that the reason for this 
trickery was to get me out of the way so that my wife 
could be free. She, realizing that my social standing and 
prestige were gone, would soon annul our marriage and 
probably fall under the wing of another officer. It is true 
that there were some English officers present, but to in- 
sure and to keep the chain of relations between native and 
white, Indian and English, strong, they did nothing. 

Here I was, one day an Army officer, married, and 
very happy, and the next day tricked by jealous comrades- 

I was to be taken by two Hindu guards to Calcutta, 
but at Hyderabad, the train was attacked by Moslems and 
I was able to escape. 

Making good my escape, I wandered for years all over 
the central part of India, dressed as a Hindu. I acted as 
a Hindu and gradually looked like a Hindu. The money I 
made as a letter-writer paid for my food and drink. I 
roamed for years, always knowing that if I were caught 
by my former comrades I would probably be shot. Gra- 
dually I became impatient; I wanted to see Madras again. 


On arrival there I was able, thanks to my years of 
wandering, to pass as a Hindu, and I got a job in a crema- 
torium. Here I worked in a cold stone building with a flat 
roof. Inside there was an iron structure which served as 
the base for the cremations. On the wall opposite the 
small door were two red candles which made the room look 
very mysterious. The building had no windows, and on 
its roof the pigeons enjoyed the heat from the sun outside 
and the heat from the bodies inside. 

At times whUe working I used to wish I had money to 
go back to England or Egypt, but my job of tending the 
burning biers was only enough to pay my room and board. 

One day I thought of a good solution to my lack of 
money. As it was an old Hindu custom to bum all 
one's jewellery with the body, I realized that I could remove 
the jewellery from the biers after the body had been burnt 
up. Eager to leave Madras, I decided that I would rob 
the next body. 

The next body happened to be a princess. Although 
princesses are quite common in India, their title always 
denotes wealth. Her husband, a high-ranking officer, had 
brought the body, and had decided to stay to pray for her 
soul, as the flames began the task of eating her earthly 
remains. As her body began to transform into black flaky 
ashes, I wondered how long I would have to wait till the 
officer left. I hoped I could persuade him that he should 
leave, which would leave me alone to remove the jewels 
and make a quick getaway. 

I began to walk towards him. to talk to him, when 
suddenly my feet froze, I was amazed; this officer was an 
Indian Brigadier. His arm-patches signified that he was 
attached to my old regiment. By his hooked nose and a 
long green ring on his left hand I was sure I had found the 
man who had sentenced me to prison. Terror sprang up 
in my heart. I felt that the time for revenge had come. 

Quickly I removed my dagger from its case, and with 
speed and accuracy I bent his neck back and struck. He 



fell to the floor-, bleeding to death. I immediately lifted 
him up and put him on the burning bier beside his wife. 
It took me only a moment to remove the jewels and leave 
the building. 

Three weeks later I arrived in Africa and journeyed 
on to Cairo. There I sold a few of the princess' jewels to 
some Germans. 

The rest I still have and when I die they will be for- 
warded to you, because they were your mother's. 
Your loving father, 

John Morley Turner.

The Crippled dreamed .... 

Of the frozen wastes of Winter's magic; 

Translucent, with Her mixed blessing 

Reflecting the friendly fingers of the Sun. 

Of the wide expanse of shifting sands, 

Crushed by the Sea's unrelenting surge. 

Alone, but for one grey gull 

Soaring and twisting o'er the wasted sea . . . 

And from his bed he saw 

Four grey walls; 

One tree, standing desolate and alone, 

And the grey sky.

My head throbbed and my entire body felt heavy and 
dull with pain. I dragged myself forward, straining my 
arms to move inch by inch through the deep, clutching 
snow. The cold itself didn't matter now — it was the wind 
— blowing the icy, biting sleet into my face with stinging 
ferocity. It seemed to go right through me. If only t 
could see something — anything! Why not give up and sink 
into the white obscurity? It would be so easy — no more 
wind or pain! Clenching my teeth I crawled onward — 
drag - push - drag - push - drag - I raised my head - slowly 
— it felt as though I was lifting a safe with the back of my 
skull, but squinting into the maelstrom ahead revealed 
nothing but bottomless white. Then my head dropped and 
with a short agonized sob I thrust myself forward for the 
last time. This final surge catapulted me headlong into a 
snowbank, and there I dropped, unable to move. Black- 
ness surged into my brain and even remained when I forced 
open my frozen eye-lids. I must be blind! And the wind — it 
no longer cut into my face — yet I could still hear its high- 


pitched moan. Some moments elapsed before I could move 
again; but finally, on rolling my head I realized what had 
occurred. I had miraculously shoved myself through the 
mouth of a cave, which had been obscured by the drift. 

Slowly I dragged the rest of my body into this 
sanctuary and finally wriggled into a sitting position. Then, 
on fumbling in the deep pockets of mj' parka, I succeeded 
in extracting a package of matches. After a number of 
attempts I managed to light one. Its yellow glow enabled 
me to discern that the cave was quite deep, and perhaps 
high enough for a short man to stand erect. The air was 
dank and cold, and somewhere in the gloom, out of reach 
of the match's aura, I could hear the steady plink of drip- 
ping water. The ragged walls, full of sharp, jutting 
irregularities sent grotesque shadov/s leaping in all direc- 
tions. Near the edge of the gloom I saw what looked to 
be a shimmering network of sUk covering the back of the 
cave. This appeared vaguely familiar but before I could 
decide, the match went out. Holding it aloft had momen- 
tarily exhausted me and it was some time before I lit 
another. Meanwhile, the snow had again obscured the 
entrance and the blackness was now complete. 

The monotonous dripping of the water echoed hollow 
and sharp and gave me a feeling of dread. A strange 
apprehension sent a tremor of fear through my body and 
I experienced a sudden biting panic that something was 
trying to creep up on me in the darkness. Hastily I lit 
another match — and what I saw brought a horrified gasp 
to my lips. Before me, scurrying out of the light, were 
hundreds of tiny, furry spiders! A cold hand gripped my 
soul and turned my blood to water. I loathed spiders — 
the mere mention of them awoke a stark, overpowering 
fear deep within me. The touch of one on my hand had 
always sent me into wild convulsions and often I awoke 
cringing, after a spidery nightmare. 

Now I screamed and tried to kick out with my legs, 
but they failed to respond and knew they must be frozen. 



Then the match burned out and I frantically lit another. 
Again in the shadows rustled the tiny retreating forms. I 
was sweating profusely and in my little globe of light I 
waited, paralyzed with fear and cold, to light the next 
match. The thought of those creeping bodies, waiting only 
for darkness to crawl in upon me, struck unholy dread into 
ray heart. I tried to move towards the cave-mouth again, 
but I was rendered immobile with terror — so I waited and 
struck one match after another. Once I was a bit slow 
and two or three of the horrible creatures reached me and 
darted up the front of my parka. I crushed them con- 
vulsively and sank back trembling. I realized that my 
match supply was steadily decreasing and that it would 
not be long before the last one flickered and went out, 

leaving me in darkness — with the spiders

The whistle screamed. The world it seemed 
Came crashing round our ears. 
Though they were small and we were tall, 
We soon were plagued with fears. 

We tried our break. It didn't take. 

We only fumbled. Down 

The floor they came, and just the same 

Their forwards went to town. 

Our zone was cracked right down the back. 

And baskets soon were scored 

Try hard as might, we looked the sight 

The Juniors had of yore. 

Our nerves were marred. And now they barred 

The team from their attack, 

We realized the trouble. Sized 

Our foes. Then we fought back 

Once free of this we did not miss. 

Our score then mounted fast. 

And, as good teams, who try, it seems 

We triumphed at the last. 

The moral of this story is 
That every team should fight.

As we stroll down bottom flat of one of the houses of 
our old school during study, a head pops out of a door and 
a voice echoes down the hall, "Two Weeks." He has been 
sentenced. The last mile must be walked and one of the 
last of two survivors must follow his companions to the 
gloom of the classroom block. 

We follow this sad individual across the gangplank 
into a wicked looking building where he plunges into a door 
at the far end of a cold,bleak corridor. At one end of this 
hall we find such notices as "The following will be shot in 
relays of four, beginning at two and ending at five," while 
another geometrical notice proves to us that "If X runs two 
miles in a squash court after lunch, he will die of stomach 
cramps or consumption, and Y will therefore win." The 
jailer in the room which our friend has entered pushes him 
into a cell about two by four, the idea being, one crams 
better when one is cramped. The others around him 
struggle with different chores. They have all been sen- 
tenced for different periods of time, but none will be re- 
leased until they tread the straight and narrow 60% path. 

The strain of work proves too much for the newcomer 
and he is heard quietly singing "Roll Out the Barrel," But 
the jailer immediately pounces on him, and stone-heartedly 
gives him four hours' detention. (This usually includes 
digging the ground and laying bricks for the new Chapel.) 

The only way a prisoner may get a short recess is if 
his hair has passed the shoulders, and after careful inspec- 
tion is deemed too long. Then they may have the usual 
7/8 of an inch shave from the skull. (This hair-do is to 
prevent disease, not to stop one from curling one's curls 
in CTiapel, as was St. Peter's theory in making women wear 

The previous enjoyment, when a rather sympathetic 
and human jailer existed has now unfortunately left us. 
However, many will remember the phenomenon of number 
376015 (Smith i) being excused with number 796312 (Mc- 


Caughey), and returning with his coat on and vice versa, 
and receiving the severe penalty of one lateness. It may 
also be remembered then when some practical joker put 
glue on the jailer's seat on April Fool's Day the study was 
told to remain afterwards, but usually were let go due to 
good conduct during the remainder of the period. But the 
jailer was so popular with the jailbirds and vice versa that 
he left us for a co-educational school, where he is spread- 
ing good deeds to males and females and vice versa.

One of the most interesting and debatable subjects in 
the field of sports, is "individual sports versus team 

I think that the most pointed and obvious argument 
against "team sports" is that it tends to suppress the for- 
mation of character of a boy, which is partly formed on 
the playing fields, because he is cramped by others around 
him. However in "individual sports" you are on your own, 
your actions, personal rivalry, and competitive spirit help 
to bring out and strengthen not only your character but 
also your outlook and approach to life. The only point, I 
believe, that keeps team sports in player popularity is the 
teamwork which prevails. This spirit of helping the other 
fellow and striving not just for the individual but for the 
team, is very important in helping to develop a community 
spirit for later life. On the practical side, it is manifestly 
evident that "individual sports" will be played by most 
people after leaving the School. 

Many types of both of these sports are played in some 
way around the School. "Team sports" include Football, 
Soccer, Basketball, and Hockey. In between the two is 
Cricket. "Individual sports" include Track and Field, 
Squash, Swimming, Tennis, Gymnastics, and to a less 


extent Badminton, Ping-Pong and Golf. I do not think 
that individual sports are given enough attention in the 
School today. 

In closing I should like to quote a few words by G. L. 
Jessop: "Those qualities which go to build up any success 
that a boy may attain at any game will not desert him in 
the more serious battle of life. And although every game 
is hedged in with restrictions, it is better to regard the 
spirit of the Game rather than the letter of the Law".

The first hockey team this year is in an independent 
Prep School League with S.A.C., Lakefield, Pickering, and 
Appleby. It was decided to drop out of the O.H.A. Junior 
B League we have been in for the past two years, because 
of the unfavorable schedule and the unfair competition 
with the artificial-ice schools. Mr. Humble is coaching 
the squad again this year, and by aU indications we are 
headed for a brilliant season. Don Fullerton, team captain, 
and Herb Moffitt are two of the finest centres the School 
has seen in many years. Bruce Miller and Nige Thompson 
have shown very well on defence. 

The Juveniles and Midgets have dropped out of their 
O.M.H.A. League because of the ruling against night 
games, and now have regular exhibition schedules with the 
usual schools. Mr. Armstrong is coaching the Juveniles, 
and Mr. Hass the Midgets. 

A winter issue of the "Record" cannot pass without 
mentioning Mr. Gwynne-Timothy's world renowned "In- 
ternational Rabbit League". This year the league is split 
into two divisions, with three teams in each division bear- 
ing N.H.L. titles. I am sure the hockey displayed in the 
I.R.L. will be much more exciting than in the N.H.L,, and 
undoubtedly better organized. 



Won 10-9 

In the earliest game ever played by one of our hockey 
teams, the first six barely managed to edge out the Old 
Boys 10-9 at Oshawa, early in December. 

The School jumped into a quick lead as Austin shot 
home a goal at the two-minute mark. Moffitt and Fullerton 
added to this lead before G. Robarts tallied the Old Boys' 
only goal in the first period. The play, as in the rest of 
the game was ragged. The second period started slowly, 
then speeded up considerably as the Old Boys outscored 
the School 3-2. McMurrich scored two of these goals 
within eleven seconds. Little and Austin were the School's 

The final twenty minutes saw a flurry of goals by 
both sides. G. Robarts tied the score on a nice passing 
play from Gilbert, and from then on there was a see-saw 
battle for the lead. The Old Boys scored three times near 
the middle of the period to go two goals up, but Miller and 
Little evened the score at 16.30. G. Robarts tallied again 
a minute later, but Thompson tied the game with a slap 
shot from the blue-line. After numerous pile-ups in front 
of the Old Boys' net, Austin pushed in the clincher with 
only fifteen seconds remaining. Stratford, in the School 
nets had forty-eight shorts on goal. 

Old Boys — Goal, V. Dawson; defence, E. Huycke, E. Howard; 
centre, A. Wells; wings, H. Hyde, G. Payne; alternates, M. Hall, 
G. Robarts, R. Gilbert, R. Wood, J. Fullerton, D. McMurrich, 
G. Brookes. 

Exhibition Games 

In three exhibition matches played before the league 
schedule began, the first hockey team beat the D.K.E. 
fraternity 12-6, the Zeta Psi 7-2, and the Kappa Alpha 8-6. 

In their first game of the winter term the School team 
trimmed the Dekes 12-6. The first period saw the team 
outscore the visitors three goals to two. Little accounting 


for two of ours. Play tightened up in the second period 
with Thomas and Foulds banging home the two Deke 
goals, while Moffitt and Fullerton scored for the School. 
The game developed into a scoring spree in the final twenty 
minutes, as the School was consistently inside the Deke 
blue-line. Miller and Fullerton led the parade with a brace 
of goals apiece, G. Robarts tallied the final two visitors' 
scores. The strong first line of Fullerton, Austin and Little 
amassed seventeen points among them, while Miller, a 
standout on the defence, scored a pair of goals. G. Robarts 
was the pick of the Dekes, scoring three times. 

The Zates were next to fall prey to our high scoring 
team, losing 7-2. The only two goals scored by the Toronto 
fraternity came in the opening period, as the game de- 
veloped into a tough, bruising encounter. Little, Miller 
and Fullerton gave the School a 3-2 edge going into the 
second period. The rest of the game was a duel between 
the excellent Zate goalie Leuty, and a host of Trinity 
sharpshooters. The School scored twice in each of the 
two final periods on goals by Moffitt, Austin, Fullerton, 
and Little. 

In their toughest test of the season the team edged 
the Kaps 8-6 on poor ice. Moffitt opened the scoring on 
a nice passing play from Cooke and Robarts. Fullerton 
shot two counters and Cooke one to give the School a 4-2 
edge in the first period. Cooke and Austin were the two 
Trinity marksmen in the second twenty minutes, while 
Crawford tallied the only Kap goal. The final period saw 
the School hold grimly to their edge, Fullerton and Austin 
scoring for the School, while McLean and Crawford scored 
for the Kaps. 

Fullerton, Miller and Moffitt showed consistent good 
form in all of these games. 

D.K.E. — Hovvson, Mallenhaner, Sladen, Robarts, McCarter, 
Hassard, Foulds, Tliomas, McFarland, Hastie, Gilbert, Cleverly. 

Zeta Psi— Leuty, Leishman, Zimmerman, Mcintosh, McVittie, 
Whitehead, Hall, Brookes, Wishard. 

K.A. — Sherwood, Cassels, Garratt, McDonald, Shortley, Beech, 
Maiers, Black, Thompson, Wells, Payne, McLean, Crawford, Law- 


SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
Won 7-2 

The first hockey team captured their initial game im 
the independent Prep School League with a convincing 7-2 
victory over S.A.C. at Port Hope. The game was featured 
by the fast-skating, smooth-passing School squad as they 
repeatedly had golden opportunities to score, but couldn't 
make the best of them. Playing a defensive brand of 
hockey, the Saints were outshot at least 10-1. 

Miller opened the scoring with a shot from just inside 
the blue-line, after a two-man rush with Cooke. Less than 
a minute later Little carried right in on the S.A.C. goalie 
to score a beautiful goal, with Fullerton and Austin assist- 
ing. Saint Andrew's seemed disorganized, and were handi- 
capped by poor skating. Their only clear shot on goal in 
the first stanza resulted in a tally by Currie, some thirty 
seconds before the end of the period. 

After a scoreless second period, with the School con- 
sistently peppering the S.A.C. goal with shots, the team 
finally regained their scoring eye in the final twenty 
minutes. Lawrence scored for Saint Andrew's soon after 
the opening whistle, for their last goal. Then Trinity 
tallied four goals within three minutes to "ice" the game, 
Fullerton with two, Austin and Robarts the other marks- 
men. Miller, on defence, capped a brilliant two-way per- 
formance with a solo rush through the whole S.A.C. team 
to score the School's final goal. 

S.A.C— Currie, Lawrence, Wansborough, Shirley, King, Welsh, 
Malone, Powter, Errington, McLaughlin, Sutton. 

Won 10-1 

Before the start of the first game with Appleby in 
twenty years, the Headmaster presented the captain of the 
visiting team with a hockey stick and wished the team 
every success in the future. 


The first team, bolstered by a forward line from 
Middleside, completely outplayed the visitors, to capture 
their second league contest and sixth successive victory, 
10 to 1. The weaker Appleby squad never had a chance 
as the School banged in eight first period goals. Littlo 
with two, Austin, Fullerton, Robarts, Deverall, Moffitt and 
McGill were the Trinity marksmen, while Howisson scored 
the lone Appleby goal. 

The second period saw dePencier take over the goaling 
duties from Wilson, and the high scoring first line being 
replaced by the third team trio of Maier, Hinder and 
Elmery ii. This period was scoreless although the School 
outshot their opponents by a wide margin. The rushes of 
Miller and a sensational save by dePencier, which robbed 
Howisson of a goal, highlighted the period. In the final 
liventy minutes the team scorel two more goals. Cooke 
banged in a rebound, and scant seconds later Hinder tallied. 
Howisson was the only Appleby player to stand up to the 
crack Trinity squad. 

Appleby — Kenny, Benson, Mitchell, O'Connor, King, WIIsom. 
Vokes, Green, Howisson, Batton, Barwlck.

Middleside Hockey 

As yet the third team has not played a game, but they 
have been practising, under the guidance of Mr. Arm- 
strong, for their first exhibition contest on February 3. 
From all indications the team is headed for a good season. 


the first line, of Maier, Hinder and Emery ii, played credit-

Littleside Hockey 

Littleside, under the coaching of Mr. Hass. seems to 
be headed for another busy season. Church and McGregor, 
both on the team for their second year, have been elected 
captain and vice-captain respectively. Home and home 
games have been arranged with U.C.C, S.A.C. and Lake- 
field, with various unconfirmed rumours of an encounter 
with Orono; also for the first time in many years, a game 
was arranged with Appleby. 

Two contests have already been played. The first 
against U.C.C. at Unionville, gave signs of a promising 
season. The game opened on very fast ice with a tally by 
Standing for U.C.C. However, T.C.S., undaunted, came 
back with goals by Church, McGregor, Timmins, and Sea- 
gram, to make the score 4-1 at the end of the period. Both 
teams played a rough brand of hockey in the second period, 
and penalties flowed freely. McGregor opened the scoring 
for Trinity, but Lewis and Baxton slipped in two goals 
within a minute for U.C.C. Church scored two and Smith 
one for the School, while Martin garnered one for U.C.C. 
making the score 8-4. The final period showed Trinity 
tightening her grip with goals by Symons. Muntz and 
Church, upping the score to a final 11-4. Eden was best 
for U.C.C, while Church's four goals and Domville's goal- 
tending were outstanding for the School. 

The second game of the season, against Appleby here, 
showed a reversal of form; although Trinity won 5-4, it 
was against a much weaker team than U.C.C. T.C.S. seemed 
to have lost much drive and spirit. The score, 2-2 at the 
end of the first period, and 4-3 for the School at the end 


of the second was indicative of the play. The team did 
not seem to be clicking, and the only bright spots were 
MacGregor and Wright with two goals apiece. Appleby 
worked well as a team showing lots of spirit. We hope 
that games with Appleby can be continued in the following 

Team: — Goal, Domville, Levey; defence, Seymour, Bonny 
castle, Woods ii, Muntz, Dodge, Watts; forwards, Church, Mac- 
Gregor, Wright, Harris ii, LeVan, Seagram, Smith ii, Symons, 
Tlmmins ii. 





Although basketball has been a major sport for only 
a short time at the School, the last few years have seen a 
gradual improvement in the sport, due mainly to Mr. 
Hodgetts. Last year the team won the Prep School League, 
but lost to a powerful Western outfit in the Toronto and 
District Finals. The School, as spectators, discovered that 
basketball is the fastest game in team sports, and is one 
of the most exciting. I hope that basketball will continue 
to gain popularity, not only in the School, but in Canada 
as a whole. Although it will never supplant hockey be- 
cause of our natural environment, I believe that it is an 
equally good sport, and should be treated as such. 

The Senior and Junior teams are again in the Prep 
School League with S.A.C.. U.T.S., Pickering and U.C.C. 
Mr. Musgrave is assisting Mr. Hodgetts to coach both 
teams as well as a Bantam squad. 

The Seniors are without a holdover from last year's 
team, but they have shown amazing coolness and ability 
in games so far and I am sure that they will do credit to 
basketball this year. Don Greenwood, team captain, is a 
tower of strength at left forward. The Juniors are a 
stronger squad than last year and show great promise. 

— J.J.MJ*. 



In three games played so far this season, the Senior 
Basketball squad has won two and lost one. 

In the first exhibition game, played against the Deke 
fraternity, the team lost by the close score of 30-27. How- 
ever, the Jmiior team also played in this game. In the 
first half the Dekes took the lead 20-15. Wigle, who played 
a fine game throughout, scored fourteen points for the 
visitors, while Pierce with eight led the School. In the 
second half, the School played better, with a tighter de- 
fence, and outscored their opponents 12-10. Greenwood and 
Rawlinson, a Junior, scored tw^o baskets apiece for Trinity, 
while Wigle scored eight of the Dekes' ten points, to gather 
a total of twenty-two. 

The second game, played against Cobourg Interme- 
diates of the O.B.A. was a victory for the School, and a close 
one, by the score of 25-24. In the first half the team played 
well, and outscored their opponents 19-10. Greenwood, 
showing excellent form, amassed ten points, and Wood 
four. Bevan with six and Galley with four scored Co- 
bourg's points. In the second half the School suffered a 
relapse, as Cobourg opened with a very quick attack and 
outscored the firsts 14-6, four of Trinity's points coming 
from foul shots. With seconds to go a Cobourg foul shot 
which would have tied up the game missed, leaving the 
School victorious. Galley again played well for Cobourg. 
shooting three baskets, while Lawson scored the School's 
only basket. 

The team's first league game against U.C.C. Seniors 
was an easy 68-40 victory. The team showed a great im- 
provement, spurred on, no doubt, by hopes of games in 
Montreal. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the 
squad's play was their fast breaks from a defensive posi- 
tion. They took a substantial lead of 33-15 in the first 
half, with Pierce obtaining nine points and Greenwood six. 
Wallace scored six of the visitors' taUies. 


In the second half the School ran circles around the 
bewildered U.C.C. team, though at times the U.CC. marks- 
men were very accurate from far out. The half was fea- 
tured by the driving play of Ernie Howard and Al Black's 
twelve point scoring spree in as many minutes. Best for 
the School in the half were Black, Pierce with nine points. 
Greenwood with eight, and Howard with six. Von Vratten 
with some excellent shots picked up nine points for U.C.C. 

In these three games Greenwood and Pierce were the 
highest scorers with thirty-four and twenty-nine points 
apiece. Special mention should also be made of J. T. 
Wood's fine work at guard. 

D.K.S.: — Walker, Wigle, Thompson, H. Guthrie, Breithaupt. 
Hurst, D. Guthrie. 

Cobourg: — Holland, Bevan, Usher, Quiglcy, Galley, Guy, Hart,

The Junior basketball team this year, coached by Mr. 
Hodgetts and Mr. Musgrave, has several of last year's 
stalwarts back, and with the help of practicing with the 
Seniors, should be headed for a very successful season. 
They won their first two exhibition games but dropped 
their first league game in a close, hard-fought match. 

The Juniors first game was against Port Hope High 
School which we won by the score of 35-9. Despite this 
one-sided victory, the team played a very scrambly brand 
of ball, and missed many scoring opportunities. Rawlinson 
was the only player who showed well for the School. 


scoring twelve points. Luxton, at guard, added another- 

The second game was played against a far better team 
— ^the Port Hope Teen Towners. The Juniors' play was 
much improved, and they scored a convincing 31-16 vic- 
tory. The first half was very even as the Port Hope team 
tried hard to break the Junior defence. However, the 
Jimiors took the lead by a score of 13-8. Rawlinson 
sparked the attack, dropping three baskets. During the 
second half the team played with more co-ordination, and 
in so doing they picked up eighteen points holding their 
opponents to only eight; Baker starred shooting six bas- 
kets. Rawlinson with eight points, Baker with fourteen 
and Cleland with nine were best for the School, while 
Reaves played well for Port Hope scoring twelve points. 

In their first league game the Juniors lost to a tall 
U.C.C, quintet by the score of 38 to 33. The first half, 
which ended with Upper Canada in front fourteen to 
eleven, was closely contested although the visitors led by 
eight points at one time. Unfortunate shooting hindered 
the School attack. A well played second half saw Trinity 
fighting to overcome the U.C.C. lead, but the visitors 
always kept ahead pulling away to a five point advantage 
in the final minute. Moore, with twelve points, starred for 
U.C.C. Cleland played a strong two-way game for the 
School, garnering nine tallies. 

Junior Team: — Forwards, Rawlinson, VandenBergh, Cleland, 
Bovey; centres, Baker, Gundy; guards, Croll, Lewis, Luxton,

This year more boys are playing squash than any 
other sport. And thanks to a generous donation of racquets 
and balls by Messrs. Wisener and Travis only the number 
of courts available limits the players. A large number of 
junior players are learning the game, and squash seems 
more firmly imbedded in the School's sports life than ever 


before. As usual the first ten players are on the School 
ladder, the others are divided between the Brent and 
Bethune ladders. A great deal of credit must be given to 
the members of the School ladder, for teaching the junior 
players how to play the game. 

Three matches have been played so far this year, and 
tlie School team has emerged victorious in each, winning 
over the Dekes 5 to 3, the Zetes 5 to 0, and the Kaps 4 to 3. 

School — J. Paterson i, Captain, (3-1); Luxton '3-1); A. Patei'- 
8on ii (3-2); Aitken (3-1); Luxton (1-1); Ross 1 (4-1).

The ninth annual Invitation Tournament, held in late 
November, produced some excellent squash. Mr. Bill Noyes, 
exhibiting a complete mastery of the game, defeated Mi-. 
Syd Hetherington to capture the Argue Martin challenge 
trophy. Mr. Ham Quain won the consolation tourney. 
Other visitors included Messrs. Gibson, Mickle, Seagram. 
Wood and Hanley. The draw was filled out with A. Knight, 
Esq., J. Paterson, Luxton, Aitken, A. Paterson, Little and 
Ross i. 


Noyes (Hart House) beat Mickle (Carleton Club) (3-0). 
Hetherington (Carleton Club) beat Gibson (Thistle Club) 


Noyes beat Hetherington (9-15, 18-13, 15-11, 15-11).

Together with many other people in a similar situa- 
tion, we would like to register our strong disapproval of 
the so-called "Winter of 1949" on the basis of its perform- 
ance up to the time of writing. The opportunities for 
hfK'.key and skiing have been fleeting or non-existent. 

To offset the vagaries of our Northern Climate, the 
J.S. has been divided up into a basketball and a floor 
hockey league and these, together with some swimming. 
have helped to give us amusement and exercise. All mem- 
bers of the School are to be congratulated on the cheerful 
way in which they have gone ahead with these other 
activities. Perhaps we will have better luck in February! 

The billiard table has recently been recovered and ie 
now in really good shape again. Both it and the new ping- 
pong table are in constant use. 

The Hobby Room has recently been smartened up and 
should prove useful during the weeks ahead. 

The School has very recently purchased a new radio- 
phonograph and the Ladies Guild have made us a gift of 
some new records. We feel sure that both gifts wOl be 
greatly appreciated by the boys and will be put to good 
use. We are very grateful indeed to Mr. Jackman for 
making the purchase of the radio-phonograph possible 
through his gift which was recorded in the previous issue 
of the Record. 

Our sincere thanks to Mrs. Roy Jones and Mis. Alan 
Stewart for their gifts of books to the Library. 

We are looking forward to our first Gym. Competition 
with St. Andrew's College early in March. This event 
marks the first time that either school has produced a 
Junior School team for competition with another school. 
We hope that this may be the beginning of an annual 



The Junior School Christmas Entertainment was well 
up to the high standard of performance set in the previous 

All members of the various casts are to be congratu- 
lated on their good work. It takes a lot of effort from 
everybody concerned to put plays on, but the results have 
so far made the effort well worthwhile. 

The four plays were all well-performed but particular 
mention should be made of "Dick Whittington and His 
Cat". This play put on by the Prep boys went over par- 
ticularly well and Mrs. Spencer and Mrs. Moore are to be 
congratulated on their direction of it. 

Mr. Burns' costuming of the Scene from "Julius 
Caesar" deserves a special mention. The armour looked 
most convincing though only made of cardboard painted 
with aluminum paint! 

The Junior School Chorus proved as popular as ever 
and Mr. Dennys is to be congratulated on his work with 
this group. 

We are also most grateful to Miss Wilkin for her help 
with the dance routines.

On a large wooden table stood an ink-well. It stood 
motionless and untouched. At last, night came, and a 
dark curtain enveloped the room; but at the table some- 
thing curious was happening — there was a shimmering, 
silvery light about the ink-well, from which mild ripples 
broke forth, gently lapping the sides, and threatening to 
break over. 

Soon tiny hands could be seen clutching the sides, and 
grotesquely shaped figures painfully striving to free them- 
selves from what appeared to be chains. Suddenly one 
succeeded in jumping over the side and fell, a dark splotch 
on the table. However, it did not last long as a splotch, 
but sprang up and proceeded to perform what seemed like 
a dance. Soon he was joined by more of his companions, 
and more were coming out; one after another they plopped 
on to the table. Soon the whole table was a mass of sway- 
ing, whirling figures engaged in a fascinating performance. 
But the night could not last forever. The dawn was break- 
ing in the skies overhead; and the glimmer about the ink- 
well grew dim. The elves stopped their rhythmical dance 
and, terror written across their faces, rushed for the ink- 



well. They all managed to fade into the ink, excepting 
one. Weaker than his companions, he was unable to cope 
with them, and the light of dawn had caught him. He 
melted into a little puddle, which in turn formed a little 
stream which reached the edge of the table and dripped 
down . . . drip . . . drip . . . drip . . .

"Have you ever read David Copperfield ?" 


"Have you ever read The Three Musketeers?" 


"Surely you've read Treasure Island?" 


"Haven't you even read Prester John?" 


"Do you hke Mark Twain?" 


"You've heard of Rudyard Kipling. I suppose?" 


"By the way, what's happening to Dick Tracy?" 

"Well, you see, him and this other cop got this dame 
to find these two crooks, and then they shot the crooks 
but the dame's mother hit the other cop on the head and 
then they took him and dumped him in a truck and — etc.

-C. O. Spencer, Form III. 


It was October the twenty-fifth, eighteen hundred and 
fifty-four, and the little village of Balaclava stood like a 
charred skeleton in the grey dawn. A few horses were 
tethered to a wooden post which, having been newly driven 
in, stood out against the blackened ruins. One of the 


horses, a tall grey about seventeen hands high, pawed the 
ground uneasily and mouthed its bit. 

A crowd of jovial men in uniform ran out of a haif- 
bumed cottage, untied their steeds and rode off. The 
grey, Shallop by nam.e, felt a thrill of excitement run 
through his body as he cantered along. 

On the rise overlooking a valley the little party 
stopped, others soon joined them. Shallop could feel his 
rider tense in the stirrups. Something must be going to 
happen. An order was rapped out, men looked blankly at 
each other and there was a low mumble which ceased in- 

Shallop felt a sudden stab of the cruel spurs and 
started off at a gallop getting faster and faster as the 
whole troop raced into the valley. Dust flew everywhere, 
nothing could be heard but the thvmdering of hooves. An 
explosion rocked the earth; horses neighed; men screamed. 
Shallop raced forward blmdly, another boom and a white 
flash, followed by another, and Shallop lay in the dust to 
be trampled down by the following cavalry. That evening 
when the dust had settled there was nobody in the Light 
Brigade to bury Shallop's body.

The over-hanging bank of the dried-up stream bed 
protected the small rock which lay in its shadow. On the 
surface of the stone a lone black ant was busy gathering 
the remnants of a grasshopper to carry back to the hill, 
oblivious of the dark, threatening rainclouds which were 
massing overhead. 

Suddenly the earth was deluged by a staggering rain- 
fall. As the animals scurried for shelter under overlapping 
branches, tiny tricklets of water grew, were joined by 
others, and soon merged into one as they met in the stream 
bed. Leaves and sticks were carried on the surface to a 
pond which was by now flooding its banks. Too late the 


ant realized that he was stranded, for the rock was com- 
pletely ringed by muddy, swirling water. The ant was 
perfectly dry. for the projecting edge of mud acted as an 
impenetrable roof against the driving rain. 

For the rest of the day and that night the rain con- 
tinued to beat mercilessly down and the stream rose imtil 
the ant occupied the only dry square inch of rock. Half- 
waj' through the next day, however, when the downpour 
finally abated, the ant was on the verge of starvation. 

His bid for freedom came when a soggy green leaf 
drifting lazily past caught for a second on the edge of the 
rock. He took his opportunity, crawled on. and began his 
journey. His boat carried him along the placid highway, 
through meadows and woods, until it finally slid into a 
projecting stick and caught hold. The ant climbed out on 
his makeshift dock only to look back in dismay as his ship 
floated away without him. He was stranded again, only 
this time on a stick stuck out of the water a few inches 
from shore. 

The adventurer, however, was not to be stmnped by 
a problem like this. He used a blade of grass as a bridge 
and reached the shore none the worse for his experience. 
Unconcernedly he ate his fill of a brother ant, joined his 
colony and settled down to live the life he had always been 
accustomed to before his great adventure.

For the first time in many years the Boxing Competi- 
tion took place before Christmas. In spite of the fact 
that there seemed to be many other things on at the same 
time, we are inclined to favour this as a good time to run

The competition was keen in all weights and there 
were some very good bouts in the semi-finals and finals.

(We have received the following account of the career 
of Jim Dennistoun whose sudden death we sadly reported 
ID our August issue). 

James Alexander Dennistoun ('06-'ll), J^on of Mr. 
Jastice and Mrs. Dennistoun of Winnipeg, died suddenly 
at Murray Bay on the 16th of June. 1948. He was attend- 
ing a Convention of Engineers. 

He was bom in Peterborough, Ontario, on the 17th of 
July 1893. He was educated at The Grove Preparatory 
School, Lakefield; at Trinity College School, Port Hope; 
and at The Royal Military College, Kingston, from which 
he graduated in 1914 with the rank of sergeant. 

In August of that year, on the outbreak of war, he 
JDined the Fort Garry Horse as Captain, and after a winter 
on Salisbury Plain he transferred to the 8th Battalion and 
served with it in 1915 with the rank of Major. In Septem- 
ber of that year he was attached to The Royal Flying 
Corps as an Observer. In 1916 he obtained his Wings as 
Pilot. In 1917 he was promoted to Flight Conmiander, 
and in 1918 he commanded the 20th Squadron. In April 
he was wounded and invalided to England. He later did 
instructional work with the Oxford and Irish Wings. 

In 1919, after the Armistice, he was in charge of a 
Oanadian Mission in Paris for the collection of data on 
French aeronautics. He was demobilized in July 1919 
and joined the staff of Baldwin's Canadian Corporation in 
Toronto, which closed its Canadian plant in 1922. He then 
spent three years in practical work in steel mills in Ohio, 
becoming foreman of the Weirton Steel Company. In 1925 
he joined the staff of The Aluminum Company of America, 
and in 1926 was transferred to the staff of The Aluminum 
Company of Canada, where he remained until his death, 
at which time he was Engineer in Charge of Transmission 
Services. He was unmarried. 

His funeral service was held in Montreal and his ashes 
were deposited in the family burial ground in the Church- 
yard of St. John's Cathedral in Wimiipeg. 



AU her friends at T.C.S. and in Port Hope were 
shocked to hear in January that Miss Smith had died in 
England on December 23rd in her seventy-second year. It 
was known that she had suffered from neuritis since re- 
turning to England and that she had lately been bedridden, 
but letters from her were always hopeful that a cure would 
be found. Her sister wrote that she had been in hospital 
in Truro and her condition had grown worse; a few days 
before she died she had requested that she be taken to a 
nursing home near her house in Bude, Cornwall, and the 
end came very soon. 

Miss Smith came as Matron to the new Junior School 
in September 1924. Before that she had held similar 
posts at St. Alban's School, Brockville, and Shrewsbury 
School, England. For thirteen years she had taught in 
Girls' Schools in England. 

During her first years at T.C.S. most boys considered 
her to be an exceedingly strict disciplinarian; Miss Smith 
believed in order and to maintain order it was necessary 
that boys and others should obey linen-room regulations 
implicitly. Later it was discovered that there was a heart 
of gold beneath her stern exterior and sharp commands. 
She began a Stamp Club and her own valuable collection 
wa3 the envy of all ordinary philatelists. Her little free 
time was regularly given most generously to any School 
undertaking, and the care of the Chapel was her constant 

In 1933 Miss Smith became Matron of the Senior 
School and she carried on her good work in a larger sphere 
though she never lost her interest in the Junior School. 

Throughout the war her heart and mind were with 
the boys on active service and her own people in England. 
She did everything in her power to lighten their load. 
When the end of the war came, she decided at once to 
return to her own country, and resigned in June 1945 after 
twenty-one years of the most faithful and devoted service. 


Miss Smith will long be remembered at T.C.S. and by- 
all the boys who knew her so well. The School sym- 
pathizes deeply with her sister in her loss. 


The death of Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin on December 2nd 
removes from us a very gracious lady who for nearly 
seventy years kept Trinity College School close to her 

Mrs. Baldwin was bom in Hamilton in 1866, a daugh- 
ter of Edward Martin, Q.C. She was educated in Hamilton, 
Washington, and London, and married Lawrence Baldwin 
in 1890. Her five brothers, A. E. S. Martin ('72-'82), 
E. K. C. Martin (78-79), D'A. R. C. Martin ('81-'86), 
A. F. R. Martin ('83-'89), and F. J. S. Martin ('87-'93), all 
attended the School, as did her husband (72-76), three 
brothers-in-law, four sons, Martin ('94-'09), Edward ('14- 
'20), Archer ('17-'24), and BUI ('22-'27), one grandson, 
A- E. Moorhouse ('35-'39), eleven nephews, two great- 
nephews, and a number of cousins. 

Mrs. Baldwin's married life was spent in Toronto axid 
her home for many years, "Mashquoth" in Forest HUl, was 
well known to her countless friends. Mr. and Mrs. Bald- 
win took a deep interest throughout their lives in the 
School and their house was always thrown open to T.C.S. 
boys and Masters. Mr. Baldwin was a member of the 
Governing Body from 1912 until he resigned in 1939; he 
died in 1941. On two occasions Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin 
helped liberally to rebuild the School and they did much 
to ensure the success of the decision to build a Junior 
School. They founded a most valuable Bursary, and Mrs. 
Baldwin endowed prizes in memory of her brother, Fred, 
who was killed in action in 1918. 

As President of the Ladies' Guild from 1914 to 1927, 
Mrs. Baldwin constantly worked for the good of the School 
and it was under her direction and inspiration that the 


Guild did so much to beautify the old Chapel by installing 
the panelling and carved pews. 

A faithful member of St. Thomas's Church for many 
years, she took a most active part in the parish organiza- 
tions such as the Women's Auxiliary, the Mothers' Union, 
and Humewood House. 

Mrs. Baldwin was a saintly woman of strong char- 
acter, and she will long be remembered for her gracious 
presence, her unfailing sympathy, her alert and quick 
mind, and her devoted generosity to all good causes. The 
School sends its deep sympathy in her loss to the members 
of her family ; we shall never forget all she and her husband 
did for T.C.S. 


fjOOks easy . . . one hand too. And if necessary 

he can stop them with his torso, legs, arms . . . 

tometimes even his face. How did he get that 

way? Through practice. There's no other way : 

to become an ace goalie . . . and there's no 

other way to become a careful money manager, 


Practice careful money management while you are still 
ot college ... by living within your means, by saving a little 
if you can. It's a good habit to develop — one that will 
pay dividends for you in the future. 

We welcome your account.

Almost every school in Canada recognizes the benefits 
of sport as a school activity. And it is very true that the 
plajdng of sports does contribute greatly to the develop- 
ment of the greater part of Canadian youth. Its justifica- 
tion as a school activity lies in the fact that it maintains 
a healthy body, an important requisite for a healthy mind, 
and that it develops in us a sense of sportmanship and a 
sense of working together as a team. 

But we tend to forget, in thinking of sport, that the 
great good derived from it comes not from succeeding but 
from trying. The boy who plays second string on the 
second football team is probably getting just as much good 
out of the game as the boy who plays first line Bigside. 
He may not play in the games, but if he tries his hardest 


in the practices and in the "scrimmages", sport will have 
done him as much good, if not more, than the person he's 
"subbing" for. 

We also tend to a certain extent, to think a little too 
much of sports. It is often a much more pleasant pastime 
than work, and is for most people, easier to indulge in than 
the more intellectual occupations. Certainly it is more 
spectacular than the latter, and has much greater appeal 
to spectators. For these reasons, it is often considered as 
an end instead of merely as a means to an end, and success 
in this field becomes important as a result. One who 
achieves success gains a great deal of prestige and wields. 
in consequence, a great deal of influence in this direction. 
The result of such an overemphasis on sport is a loss of 
importance to the other extra-curricular activities that are 
part of school life. These sink into the background and 
those who indulge in them are looked upon as being ab- 
normal, and, very often as being subnormal. 

Unfortunately, some schools even encourage this 
tendency, though for quite a different reason than the ones 
mentioned above. Our School, luckily, does not fall into 
this category. We have not tried deliberately to exalt sport 
above its proper position in school life. Nevertheless, in 
the minds of many, it has become slightly more important 
than it should. It is regarded as being on a higher plane 
than other school activities, as for instance, debating. This 
is quite natural, since the appeal of debating is not usually 
immediately evident, and one only starts to enjoy it when 
one has spoken a couple of times, where sport, in some 
form or other, can be appreciated immediately. 

But it is still a great shame that the School's interest 
in debating, dramatics and the "Record" is not larger. 
These activities have just as much to offer, though in a 
different way, as has sport. Development in both fields is 
essential to a well-balanced personality. The former has 
just as much enjoyment to offer to a great many as the 
latter has. And yet one is looked on as being vastly 
superior to the other with the consequence that the less 
important plays no part at all in the development of many 
boys, who could benefit greatly by it. 


The answer to this situation lies not in the dis- 
couraging of sports, which, are after all, still a benefit, but 
rather in the encouraging of those other activities, which 
have suffered in the past. The senior boys and those of 
influence in the School should encourage the others to take 
an interest in this side of School life. Already a great 
deal of good has been accomplished by the formation of a 
Junior Debating Society. The building of a good stage 
for the School will also be a great help in this direction. 
But much has still to be accompUshed; for not until this 
whole field of extra-curricular activities had been given its 
due share of importance, will we have a really broad and 
balanced education. 




The Conversion of St. Paul 

On the third Sunday of term, the Chaplain delivered 
an address on the Conversion of St. Paul. He chose as his 
text: Acts 9:18 — "And immediately there fell from his eye 
as it had been scales; and he received sight forthwith, and 
arose and was baptized". The Chaplain chose this topic 
because of the happy coincidence in which we celebrate 
the birth of St. Paul, a great missionary, during Epiphany, 
a missionary season. 

Paul, or Saul, which had been his Jewish name, was 
a proud Roman citizen. We first hear of him In the Acts 
of the Apostles as an enemy of Christianity who took every 
opportunity to persecute the Christians. 

The Chaplain discussed the sudden change which came 
over Paul on his way to Damascus. Before this he sincerely 
believed that the Jewish law laid down by Moses was 
necessary for salvation. He did not believe that Jesus 
was the Messiah, because Jesus had been hanged on a tree. 
This, in the eyes of the law-abiding Paul, meant that he 
was an imposter. 

However, during his blindness, Paul saw the moral 
side of the Christian faith and spiritual truth came to him. 


He still believed to some extent in the Jewish Law, but he 
now believed that it was not sufficient for salvation and he 
recognized that the teachings of Jesus fulfilled this law. 
Paul also changed his view of the cross and despite what 
the law said, he believed that Jesus did die on the cross 
for the forgiveness of the sins of the world. 

Mr. Bagley pointed out that after his conversion, Paul 
broke away from the old idea that Christianity should be 
preached only to the Jews. Paul took the step which 
separated Christianity from Judaism, for he saw that it 
was necessary to spread the word to all the people. It 
was the world wide teaching of Paul which brought under- 
standing to the Church. 

Memorial Service 

On Sunday, February 20, a special Choral Communion 
Service was held in memory of Miss Ethel Smith. Miss 
Smith was for twenty-one years matron of this School, and 
was loved and respected by all. She died recently in Eng- 
land. We hope that in the new Chapel there will be a 
memorial to her. 

The Chaplain was assisted in this service by the Rev. 
C. H. Boulden, rector of St. Mark's Church. 

The Christian Life 

The sermon on February 20 was preached by Mr. 
Gwynne-Timothy. As his text he chose from St. Paul's 
Epistle to the Philippians, "Whatsoever things are true; 
whatsoever things are honest; whatsoever things are 
lovely; whatsoever things are of good report; if there be 
any virtue in them; if there be any praise in them, think 
on these things". By following such a principle to the 
best of our ability we could be sure that we were living a 
true Christian life. We should strive to be Christian gentle- 
men — "one who never consciously harms another by word 
or deed". 

Mr. Gwynne-Timothy called for truthfulness and 
loyalty, to God and the King; honesty, both to ourselves 


and our companions, fairness to all whom we meet, 
especially at School, and appreciation of beauty. 

'Love Thy Neighbour* 

On February 27, Mr. Baglcy spoke at afternoon 
Chapel. It being Quinqagesima Simday, the Chaplain's 
sermon dwelt on charity: caring for and loving others. 

Mr. Bagley pointed out that most people make a mis- 
take in "sticking to the letter" of the religious law. Be- 
cause they have done this they believe that they are 
faultless and in a sense they are, for indeed they have not 
broken the Church Law. However, the proper attitude is 
to extend this Law, surpass it by acting charitably to- 
wards all others, and not necessarily those who are poor. 

Social service is one excellent way of helping the un- 
fortunate people in life. However, many enter social work 
with the idea that it will be fun. It is not fun in the true 
sense of the word, but many derive pleasure from helping 
others. Again, social work is not so simple. The barriers 
of depression must be pulled down and justice established 
the world over-. 

"Love the Lord thy Gk)d and thy neighbour", con- 
cluded Mr. Bagley, "and remember that one cannot serve 
both Mammon and God." 

The Atonement 

On the second Sunday in Lent, the Chaplain spoke on 
the doctrine of the Atonement. He said that in Lent our 
thoughts naturally turn to this doctrine, which concerns 
itself with the fact that Jesus on the Cross was somehow 
able to remove the sin which had been separating man 
from God. As an example of the new relationship men 
were beginning to have with Him after the Crucifixion, 
Mr. Bagley told of Peter who, after having denied Christ 
thrice, fearlessly went forth, preaching the word, motivated 
by some new force which gave him strength and courage 
to go forward without fear. The Cross had taught him 
the true love of God. 


Mr. Bagley cautioned us that here is where our con- 
ception of the Atonement often goes astray. The Cross 
wiped out our sins but it was not our actual suffering 
which brought our salvation. The suffering redeemed us 
only because it was an example of the eternal and lasting 
love which God has for us. God loves us so much that 
we cause him great pain when we sin, just as an earthly 
father suffers for the sins of his son. But for the Cross, 
we never would have known the extent of God's love. When 
we see what suffering we cause God by our sins today, we 
are moved to try to lessen the breach between the Father 
and ourselves by repenting our sins. 

The principles which underlay Christ's action when he 
chose the Crucifixion are given in the story of the woman 
who washed His feet with her tears, and wiped them with 
her hair. The woman, a sinner, did this as Jesus entered 
the house of Simon. She served Jesus so eagerly that He 
forgot all about her sins, and behaved as if they never 
existed. Simon thought that it was wrong to forgive any- 
one unless the full price had been paid. Then Jesus told 
him a story which shows that love is a positive thing, and 
that forgiveness comes from loving, not suffering. 

The story is about two servants, one who was forgiven 
a debt of fifty pence by his master, the other a debt of 
five hundred pence. It is obvious that the one who was 
forgiven most, loved most, but here Jesus turned the story 
around. He told Simon how much more the woman had 
done for Him than Simon had. Her sins were forgiven 
because "she loved much". Love had won her forgiveness, 
and she became Jesus' friend. The fact of forgiveness was 
there and in this lies the true explanation of the Atone- 
ment, applying equally as well today as it did then. Until 
we are willing to care for God through loving service, no 
amount of explanation will avaU. 

In closing, the Chaplain pointed out that there must 
be something solid behind every explanation, and this must 
be got by service in love. Through this love will come 
experience. Mr. Bagley quoted a verse from the hymn, 
"When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" which puts this 
truth firmly and clearly: — 


Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were an offering far too small; 
Love so amazing, so divine, 
Demands my soul, my life, my all. 

Headmaster's Addresses 

On February 6 and March 6 the Headmaster spoke in 

Vahiable Experience 

This term several Sixth Form boys have been helping 
Mr. Boulden with the Sunday services at Bewdley. They 
read the Lesson, the Psalms and some of the prayers, in 
other words the whole service except for the sermon and 
a few of the prayers. This not only serves as good ex- 
perience for these boys but also is a great help to Mr. 
Boulden. who has many services to conduct on Sundays. 
The boys who are doing this are Thompson i, Paterson ii, 
Deverall, Taylor and Scowen. 




Friday, February 11, 1949, will be a red letter day in 
the minds of all T.C.S. people. At lunch on that day the 
Headmaster asked the Senior School to meet him in the 
Gymnasium at 1.45. We had been called to the Gym. a 
few days previously to hear a recital of our short-comings, 
and we suspected that another crime had come to light. 

But this was no ordinary meeting; the gallery was 
filled with the J.S. and most of the staff were present. We 
did not have to wait long: The Head began by reminding 
us that schools like T.C.S. were built and maintained by 
their generous friends; no financial support had ever been 
received from a Government or other public body. The 
fees usually paid running expenses but when a new build- 
ing was needed we relied on the goodness of our friends. 
He mentioned the vicissitudes in the history of T.C.S., two 
fires, three wars, the great depression — and he told us that 
the School could never have survived unless its friends had 
come most magnanimously to its help on many occasions . 
Especially he mentioned Mr. and Mis. Britton Osier and the 
members of their family who did so much to rebuild and 
equip the new School after the fire of 1928, and then saved 
us from insolvency during the depression. He spoke of 
Mrs. Harry Paterson's generosity and the legacy left by 
the late Mr. Peter Campbell. Then the Head dealt with 
the campaign for the Memorial Fund, the wonderful work 
done by the Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Charles 
Bums, and his right hand men, notably Mr. Hugh Labatt, 
Mr. Peter Campbell, Mr. R. P. Jellett and Mr. Syd Saunders. 


Mr. Campbell had been one of the most renowned 
athletes ever to attend T.C.S. ; for ten years and more he 
had been most anxious to have a covered rink built at 
T.C.S. but he knew that the Chapel should come first and 
he threw himself into the campaign for it. In the last 
conversation the Headmaster had with him before he died 
in November he had said how much he hoped a rink would 
be built "and perhaps it will be called the Peter Campbell 
Memorial Rink". 

"Now", said the Headmaster. "I have been given per- 
mission to tell you that the rink is going to be built, that 
it will have artificial ice, and that it will be called The 
Peter Campbell Memorial Rink. It is going to be given in 
memory of Mr. Campbell by Mr. George McCullagh, a very 
close friend of Peter Campbell's." 

Before the Headmaster could say another word, a 
swelling roar of delight filled the Gym. and resounded for 
many minutes; boys were clapping each other on the back 
and bursting with delight. Then the Head Prefect lead in 
three cheers and a tiger for Mr. McCullagh, the most 
generous donor. 

That night the announcement was made at the Old 
Boys' Dinner in Toronto, with the same delighted response 
from the two hundred Old Boys. 

The first covered rink at T.C.S. was built in 1911 
through the efforts of the Old Boys, led by the late Sir 
Edmund Osier. It was burnt to the ground in 1928. 

The new rink is planned to be of brick, matching the 
colour in the other School buildings, it will have room for 
about fifteen hundred spectators and dressing rooms. The 
ice surface will be about 180' by 80'. It is expected that 
it will be completed bj' next November. Town teams will 
rent it when the School does not need it. 

No more fitting form of memorial to Peter Campbell 
could be imagined, and no building more desired by the 
boys could be given to the School. Ordinary words cannot 
begin to express our gratitude to Mr. McCullagh and he 
would not like extraordinary words, so we shall just say 
that we shall never forget his kindness; year by year 
hundreds of T.C.S. boys will be indebted to him. 



The following editorial concerning the rink appeared 
in the Montreal Gazette on Monday, February 14: 


The schools and colleges of Canada, in adjusting them- 
selves to the needs of the postwar world, have been aided 
by many important gifts. Such a gift has come to Trinity 
College School at Port Hope, Ontario, in the sum of 
$100,000, given in memory of a former T.C.S. athlete who 
was a triple captain in football, hockey and cricket, the 
late Peter G. Campbell. This is the generous gift of Mr. 
C. George McCullagh, publisher in Toronto of The Globe 
and Mail and of The Telegram. 

This presentation to Trinity College School, of which 
ne is a governor, is another example of the interest in 
education which Mr. McCullagh has already shown in hiis 
active support of the University of Toronto, of whose 
governing body he is also a member. 

Trinity College School has served generations of Cana- 
dians, since it was founded in the middle years of the last 
century. It is an institution which has cherished its tradi- 
tions, whDe constantly improving its equipment to meet 
modem standards. The gift presented by Mr. McCullagh 
will be used for the construction of an artificial ice rink 
and arena. This will give the School exceptionally fine 
facilities for athletic training in the most Canadian of 
sports. It is. however, a gift not only to the School but 
to the eonmiunity, as it will be open for use by the towns- 
people of Port Hope. 

Montreal, like many other cities in Canada, has many 
graduates and many students of Trinity CoUege School. 
And many here, as elsewhere, will learn with pleasure that 
the "old school" is also to be kept the "new school" in its 
facihties and means of training. 

Gifts to the Library 

Mrs. Campbell Howard, of Montreal, has given to the 
library a much appreciated gift of a complete set of the 
works of Meredith. 


Additional recent gifts to the library include books 
from Mrs. S. C. Goering, Mr. E. Cohu. Mr. P. H. Lewis. 
W. A. Heard, J. A. Palmer, and Ben Cole. A number of 
other volumes have been added, purchased from the funds 
donated by the Ladies' Guild. The income from the Miller 
Fund has also been used to replace several books in the 
Miller collection. 

Rice Lake 

Though the unusually mild weather reduced winter 
sports to a minimum this year, the School successfully 
organized three Sunday trips to nearby Rice Lake. The 
first trip was made late in February when the ice was 
finally considered safe for skating. One bus, three or more 
taxis, and any other vehicle that could be mustered .(some 
masters' cars were also pressed into service) served to 
transport some sixty or more boys to Bewdley on Rice 
Lake, a half -hour journey. There they donned their skates 
and prepared to test the smooth ice ahead. Many of the 
boys who could not rid their blood of hockey for even one 
day. immediately organized free-for-all hockey games. 
Though there were some patches of shell-ice and bumpy 
areas here and there, large expanses of ice stretched 
smooth and unbroken, almost glasslike for considerable 
distances, and the other skaters did not hesitate to make 
good use of them. 

We were fortunate in that all three trips were blessed 
with fine weather. On the last Sunday, a master and a 
group of boys skated across the lake from Bewdley to 
Gore's Landing and back, a distance of some fourteen 
miles, while the Headmaster and another energetic group 
made their way to the nearest island and returned, having 
skated a total of twelve miles. The surface of the lake 
on the final trip was by far the best, with a minimum of 
shell ice, and wide stretches of absolutely smooth level ice. 

The three trips gave a welcome illusion of winter 
weather during an otherwise mild term. 


"Letter from Chuck" 

The following are excerpts from a letter from Charles 
Taylor, Canada's representative to the World Youth 
Forum in England. The letter was dated March 9 and 
was sent on the stationery of the Cora Hotel in London 
where Charles is staying. 

"I had a very pleasant trip over from Montreal to 
London, with the weather fine all the way. Taking off 
from Dorval at 4.30 Tuesday afternoon, after having our 
pictures taken by the airplane waving to an imaginary 
crowd, we flew to Goose Bay in Labrador. It happened to 
be one of the more tropical days in that district, the tem- 
perature being only 0°, and we spent a comfoilable hour 
and a half there waiting for our departure to Shannon, 
Ireland. The following night was the shortest I have ever 
spent, the sun rising at about two in the morning (Mon- 
treal Time) and we got very little sleep as a consequence. 
However, London being the fascinating place it is, I was 
prompted to go out this afternoon and see some of the 
sights. Apart from a quick view of Buckingham Palace, 
and the Houses of Parliament, the only experiences of note 
were a ride in a tube, and a visit to Piccadilly Hotel, close 
to Piccadilly Circus. But I am looking forward very much 
to seeing more of London in the next few days. 

"On returning to the hotel, I met the representatives 
from all the Commonwealth nations and the U.S.A., and 
we had an interesting time discussing the peculiarities of 
our different countries at the dinner table. This proved 
a good start, and the forthcoming forums show all signs 
of being both interesting and educational. 

"Give my regards to the boys and to the masters". 
Best regards, 


Mr. Aubrey Cart>vright ('92-'95) 

We were very happy to have Mr. Cartwright with us 
for a short visit this term. Mr. Cartwright is a success- 
ful rancher in Alberta and this is the first time he has 
returned to the School in fifty-three years. Many of his 


relatives have been here, however, and his two sons were 
Head Boys in 1938 and 1939 respectively. Mr. Cartwright 
spoke briefly to the School after lunch ; he recalled the fire 
of 1895 and remarked on the "luxury" of School life to-day 
as compared to fifty-five years ago. The Headmaster 
promised a half holiday in his honour. 

Inspection Day 

The School was pleased to learn recently that Gren, 
H. D. G. Crerar. C.H.. C.B., D.S.O., has consented to take 
the salute at the Annual Cadet Inspection on May 14. 
General Crerar is the former G.O.C. the First Canadian 
Army and a most distinguished soldier. We shall be hon- 
oured to have him at the School. 


Shooting in the School this year has produced some- 
what better results than last year. The Annual Course of 
Musketry, the House Shoot, and the D.C.R.A. have all been 
completed and most have shown an improvement. In the 
Annual Course of Musketry about twenty-five boys ob- 
tained perfect scores on all their targets. 

The House Competition was won this year by Bethune 
with an average of 22.60, a pull of 1.49 over Brent's 
average score. Last year Bethune won with a score of 
18.96. Although the targets were somewhat larger this 
year, we may still consider this to be better shooting; this 
year's shoot was done in rapid firing. 

In the D.C.R.A. this year the School's first team had 
an average of 94.38 which is exactly the same as last year's 

The results of last year's Imperial Shield Match have 
been received. We stood fifth in the Dominion, a some- 
what poorer effort than usual. 

Individual stars this year have been Dignam and 
Barrow who stood first and second in the D.C.R.A. matches. 
These two boys are leading in the race for the Cup for the 
Best Shot. Bate obtained a 99 in the second match of the 


D.C.R.A. and Harris shot a 99 in last year's Imperial Chal- 
lenge Shield Match. 

A review of shooting in the School would not be com- 
plete without mention of our instructor, Mr. Batt, who has 
been so patient and fair in dealing with the boys. Every 
boy in the School takes part in all the matches and what- 
ever ability they may have they owe to Mr. Batt. We 
thank him and congratulate him on a fine job. 

The following fourteen boys obtained a ninety per cent 
average or better in the D.C.R.A. shoot: — Dignam, Barrow, 
Bruce, Harris i, Woods ii, Bate, Paterson i, Gilmour, Lewis, 
Mackenzie, Stirling, Rawlinson, McDonald, and Smith i. 


The School would like to offer its congratulations to 
the First Hockey Team which has had one of the most 
successful seasons. Its unbeaten record is not as impres- 
sive as the way in which these games were won. The team 
showed that it could play any sort of game. It was not 
daunted when behind nor overconfident when ahead and 
only thirty-one penalties were suffered throughout the 
season, several games being played with no penalties. We 
are proud of this team and our sincere congratulations go 
to Mr. Humble, the coach, Fullerton, the captain, and all 
members of the team. 

The Pancake Toss 

In keeping with School tradition which was begun 
many years ago, the putty-fight was again fought this 
year on Shrove Tuesday, March 1. The School assembled 
in the gym. after dinner, strengthened by a few blood- 
thirsty U.C.C. hockey players, to watch the battle. Each 
form elects a member to represent them, with five dollars 
going to the winner to take his form to the Tuck Shop. 
Taylor i was appointed to protect the interests of the Pre- 
fects, but his efforts proved rather futile. A rope was 
stretched across the gym., with the preliminary fight 
taking place, to see who could get closest to the centre. 


Mr. Ketchum gave the warriors the few brief rules of the 
contest, and Mr. Grace threw the pancake. Gundy took 
an early lead by grabbing a large piece of the pancake, and 
stuffing it in his pants. Apparently he was able to hold 
on to it, in spite of the "Get Gundy" calls from the various 
promoters. The fight seemed to be a bit less fierce than 
usual with only one shirt being torn off. Mike Cox, fol- 
lowing in the steps of his brothers, was ready to take on 
any unfortunate who got dislodged from the pile, in a 
private duel. After most of the pancake had been hidden 
well, the Headmaster called a halt to the fight, and the 
putty was brought by the boys to be weighed. (We are 
not sure whether this is to find out if any has been added.) 
This year the inevitable happened, with two boys. Gundy, 
lepresenting 3B and Lick 4B, having equal weights of 
putty, and two prizes were awarded. The winners were 
hoisted on the shoulders of their form-mates, and carried 
off to the Bethune House Bank to change their money. 

The School Dance 

The School Dance is being held this year on the even- 
ing of Friday, April 22. There was some talk of holding 
it at the beginning of this holiday but this is, of course, 
impossible, being in the Lenten season. 

The Art Group is preparing decorations on the same 
plan as last year's highly successful creations, and all in- 
dications point to the best Dance ever. At a meeting of 
all interested it was unanimously decided that there will 
be no corsages this year (all invited please take note). 
Instead, s special dance pin is being prepared and it is hoped 
that this will prove just as popular. It has also been 
decided that the dance is to be a weekend affair with an 
informal dance in the J.S. on Saturday night. 

The House Ofticers' Common Room 

Early this term the long promised painting of the 
House Officers' Common Room became a reality. The 
House Officers were left to wander aimlessly about the 


corridors as their beloved room was given a thorough 
going over. What finally emerged was a bright new-look- 
ing room. The walls and ceiling were all painted a light 
grey and the fireplace had been given a coat of red. With 
this improvement, the new furniture, and the proposed 
decorations, the House Officers' Common Room should be 
a very popular place when Dance time rolls around. 


The School received a most welcome half holiday on 
March 8 in honour of Mrs. Ketchum's birthday. Due to 
the inclement weather the holiday was postponed for one 
day but the School had not forgotten and a great roar 
greeted the announcement. Thank you very much. Mrs. 
Ketchum ! 

The Political Science Club 

Acting President — Herridge Secretary — Doheny 

President — Taylor Treasurer — Byers 

During President Taylor's sojourn in England, the 
Political Science Club has elected W. R. Herridge to be 
Acting President. 

For the last two meetings the Club has discussed 
Indonesia and Palestine. Mr. John Garland of Port Hope 
was kind enough to give us a talk on Sunday, March 6. 
Mr. Garland is the Chairman of the local branch of the 
United Nations Society. He is especially well acquainted 


with the Palestine situation. His lecture on the U.N. was 
very informative and brought forth some lively and in- 
teresting discussion. The Club is indebted to Mr. Grarland. 

One Sunday evening after supper in the Hall the first 
in a series of talks by members of the Political Science 
Club was given by Herridge. the acting President. Those 
talks will be given every week from now on. They last 
about five minutes and, judging from the applause, will 
prove quite popular. 

Herridge gave a short talk on the significant events 
of the past two weeks. He spoke on the Atlantic Pact, 
Newfoundland's entry into the Dominion, and the situation 
in Trans Jordan. 

We hope that subsequent talks will prove as interest- 
ing and informative as this one. 

Art Activities 

An exhibit, circulated by the Art Gallery of Toronto, 
entitled "The Development of Painting in Canada" has been 
hanging in the Carnegie Room for over a month. The 
exhibition has been divided into two sections: the first 
dealing with the development of painting until the end of 
World War One, and the second bringing us up to date. 

The history of Canadian Art goes back to the days 
when Canada was New France. At that time Canadian 
painting was executed only by Frenchmen and was some- 
what similar to contemporary French work. From this 
inauspicious beginning the exhibit traces, in thirty-two 
panels, the development of a national art, showing us what 
influences affected the Canadian painter and in what 
respects his work resembled the products of the various 
European schools. The early artists — Otto Jacobi. Paul 
Kane. Cornelius Krieghoff — executed their canvasses en- 
tirely as would a European painter of that period. At the 
turn of the century it was found that French Impres- 
sionism, with its emphasis on light and colour, was par- 
ticularly suitable to Canadian landscape painting. Then. 



on the eve of the first World War, came the natural post- 
impressionism swing and for the first time a native sense 
of patter-n in painting developed. The interest in distinctive 
use of light and colour increased; such young painters as 
J. E. H. Macdonald and A. Y. Jackson began to exhibit 
their works. A note on this period says that "during the 
war a group of painters emerged who regarded the 
academic tradition as inadequate and sought a stronger 
means of expressing their deep affection for Canada". In 
1919 these men formed the Group of Seven — and doing so 
took the most significant forward step in the history of 
Canadian Art. In 1924 the critic C. Lewis Hind said of 
their work "Bold, vigorous landscapes .... young artists 
painting a young country superbly". Canadian Art had 
grown up. The exhibit displays large reprints of some of 
the most famous Canadian paintings; Tom Thomson's 
"Spring Ice" and "West Wind", Jackson's "Early Spring. 
Quebec" and Macdonald's "Mist Fantasy" are included. 

The exhibit is very well prepared and, to those at all 
interested, is most engrossing. It gives a clear picture of 
how Canadian Art has developed, over a period of three 
hundred years, from its common beginning to the distinc- 
tive rank it now possesses. 

The School has been very fortunate in obtaining from 
February 26 to March 15, with the kind permission of the 
Right Honourable Vincent Massey, and the National Gal- 
lery of Canada, selections from the Massey Collection of 
Contemporary British Paintings. Under the direction of 
Mr. Key, the paintings were hung very effectively in the 
Hall. The thirty-six selections represented a nearly per- 
fect cross-section of the work of modem British artists. 
They ranged from the realistic productions of Spencer to 
the near abstraction of Ivan Hitchins; from the Vic- 
torianism of Philip Steer to the surrealism of Tristram 
Hillier; and from the portraiture of Augustus John to the 
landscapes of Paul Nash. The exhibition served as a le- 
markable chance to study the work of contemporary British 
painters. The most striking fact was the very wide range 
of styles represented in present day artists' production. In 
the exhibit, paintings by men of the Fauve school hung 


side by side with paintings by men like the conventional 
Sir William Nicholson. Hence the exhibit was doubly in- 
teresting; first, because it was such an excellent selection 
of British paintings and secondly because it offered such 
an interesting study in contrast. Mr. Key and Mr. Bishop 
were in attendance in the Hall for several afternoons to 
answer the questions of the large number of boys enjoying 
the paintings and several classes were given special study 
tours. The School is indeed very grateful to the Right 
Honourable Vincent Massey for authorizing the loan of 
these pictures to the School. 

On the evening of Friday, February 25, Mr. Key took 
a group of nearly fifty boys to the Art Gallery of Toronto 
to see the Thorne Miniature Rooms. These rooms are 
built to a uniform scale of one inch to the foot, rendering 
them one-twelfth actual size. They illustrate various 
phases of European interior design since the sixteenth 
century, running, as they do. from the late Tudor Period 
to the present. The rooms are really remarkable; each 
one of them is a perfect little period piece, complete in 
every detail — including books, perhaps one half of one 
inch square, containing text to scale! Photographs of the 
tiny rooms which appear in the catalogue are indistin- 
guishable from photographs of actual rooms of the par- 
ticular periods. The boys were also able to study the Sir 
Hickman Bacon collection of English water colours and 
were completely fascinated by the exhibition. Many thanks 
are due Mr. Key for organizing the trip. 

The Little Big Four Art Exhibition will be at T.C.S. 
for two weeks, commencing April 25. The exhibition is 
already open at U.C.C. and our contributions are all in. It 
is hoped that the exhibition will become an annual affair, 
for it is a very interesting and novel idea. The Art Group 
has been concentrating its more recent efforts on pre- 
paring the School's entries for the Little Big Four Art 
Exhibit, and that having been done, work has commenced 
on the Dance decorations and stage sets.

This year a debating league was formed with Rid- 
ley, U.C.C., U.T.S., S.A.C., and ourselves. U.T.S. have won 
the Championship for the first season. Our debate with 
them was the best of the season and we will look forward 
to many more. We congratulate them on their victory. 

The Debating Society would also like to take this 
opportunity to thank all those who have acted as judges, 
especially the chairmen, who have given us some very 
valuable advice. 

Our team has had exhibition debates with B.S.S., and 
one with Trinity College is being arranged. Although we 
lost to the girls several tricks were learned and we look 
forward to future occasions when the sexes can match 

This is the first year a Junior Debating Society has 
been formed and they have had debates on Tuesdays in 
Rooms H and K. With a large group of talented speakers 
coming up from this Junior Society, the debating team 
should have a very successful season next year. 

laie Glee Qub 

After a lapse of several years the Glee Club has been 
reorganized under the direction of Mr. Snelgrove. At 
present the Club has nearly thirty members. It might be 
noted that very few of them are members of the Choir. 
Additional music has been ordered and should soon arrive. 
For the first part of the term the heavy athletic pro- 
gramme interfered with practices, so that they were 
temporarily discontinued. However, they have been re- 
sumed and it is hoped that the Glee Club will be able to 
give a short concert before the end of the term. Miller ii 
is doing an excellent job providing the necessary accom- 
paniment on the piano. 


Dramatic Society 

President — Doheny. Secretary — Bovey. 

Vice-President — Taylor i. Treasurer — Paterson ii. 

Committee Member — dePencier. 

For the first time in the School's history the cast of 
the annual play is going to stage their presentation in 
Toronto. This event is scheduled to take place on April 30 
at Bessborough Hall under the auspices of the Tor-onto 
Ladies' Guild. Rehearsals for the play "Charley's Aunt" 
are proceeding smoothly and every indication points to a 
successful presentation. Taylor's jaunt to England left one 
of the major roles vacant, but his part will be taken over 
capably by VandenBergh. Levey ^\dll play the part of 
Amy, which was VandenBergh's origfinal role. 


Despite the many unkind jokes levelled at it. chess is 
probablj'^ the most interesting and difficult of all games. 
This year chess has experienced a revival under the leader- 
ship of Mr. Knight. A tournament has been started and 
is now in the semi-final stage. About twenty-five boys 
were entered and there are a great many favorites. The 
great upset came when Slater, a New Boy, beat our 
illustrious Chuck Taylor. 


Up until press time for the Record we have had three 
concerts this term. Another which was scheduled for 
March 11 by the Conservatory String Quartet has been 
postponed. However, the three which we have had were 
excellent in all respects. The highlight of the season came 
on February 14 when Mr. Harry Adaskin, one of Canada's 
foremost violinists, performed in the Hall. 

Mr. Adaskin was ably assisted on the piano by his 
wife, Frances Marr. The concert was in two sections, the 
first consisting entirely of the "Concerto for Violin" with 
piano, by Beethoven. This work was extremely heavy but 


was made much more interesting by Mr. Adaskin in a short 
synopsis of the themes, development and form used in this 
work. The performance was beautiful; the composition, 
giving opportunity for both the violinist and the pianist to 
display their technical ability, was also very melodious. 
Mr. Adaskin emerged from the forty minute work amid 
thunderous applause with only a slight dishevelment of 
hair suffered in the "cadenza". Keeping the entire School 
still and quiet on hard benches while listening to a deep 
classical also, is a feat of which any man could be proud. 

After a most welcome intermission, Mr. Adaskin con- 
tinued with the concert. This latter half consisted of four 
light pieces in perfect contrast to the first part. First 
came a semi-Spanish composition by Sarasate then "Novel- 
ette" by Sibelius. This was of a melodious, haunting char- 
acter played by the violin in low register. "Ballad", 
specially arranged and edited for Mr. and Mrs. Adaskin 
from a movement of a recently completed symphony by 
Henry Brant, was next performed with pride by Mr. 
Adaskin. This piece had only been received a few days 
before and was still in manuscript form. A modernistic 
impression of a "Hoe Down" by Aaron Copland completed 
the programme portion of the concert and it, because of 
its nature "brought the house down". 

The audience enthusiastically called Mr. Adaskin and 
his wife back for three encores, 

Waltz Brahms 

Christmas Cradle Song Mar Reight 

Road To The Isles Scottish Song 

In the first and last of these Mr. Adaskin used a mute, 
adding special interest to these more gentle pieces by 
giving them a subdued tone of pastoral beauty. After 
these, Mr. Adaskin declined further performance although 
the audience was captivated by his personal charm and 

Mr. Adaskin was born in Toronto and now is Director 
of Music at the University of British Columbia. He has 
no favorite composition or composer, and wisely says that 
there is no perfect violinist, each having his own charms 
and abilities. 


On the Friday night previous to this concert, we were 
g^iven an opportunity to see and hear one of Canada's finest 
cellists, Roland Pack. 

Mr. Pack, a dark-haired, rosy-cheeked young man, 
with a very human personality, was bom in London, Ont., 
obtained his musical education in Toronto at the Con- 
servatory and has performed in Massey Hall and across 

The works he chose for his concert were "Divertis- 
ment" by Haydn-Piatagorsky, three "Fantasies" by Schu- 
bert and in the latter half the Haydn Concerto, and 
"Playera" by Granados. 

The works of the first half were essentially of the 
same character, flowing and melodious. This sameness 
was offset by a performance of six of Chopin's Preludes 
by Miss Carol Wright who showed herself to be an excel- 
lent pianist. The Preludes were heavy in texture but a 
well-known one and the extreme technical difficulty of the 
last brought a wave of applause even from the Junior 
School. Miss Wright played with great certainty and 
emotion and lived every note of her music. 

The Haydn Concerto played by Mr. Pack during the 
latter showed to advantage his tremendous technical skill 
and was an excellent cello solo. 

"Playera" by Granados was a welcome change. It was 
Spanish in melody but not as full or as rhythmic as most 
works of Spanish character. Although not as overwhelm- 
ing as other Spanish pieces it was quite suited to cello and 
very enjoyable. 

Being called away early, Mr. Pack was not able to 
play as many encores as the audience would have liked 
but fortunately he did play one of the most, if not the most 
beautiful, of all cello solos, "The Swan". One could almost 
see the beautiful swan, swimming in its quiet forest bayou 
as much at peace with the world, as Mr. Pack seemed to 
be in its performance. This was a very fine concert. 

Our last concert so far this term was held on March 
4, when Mr. Joseph Pach, violinist, and Mrs. Nora Rogers, 
harpist, were the featured artists. 


There was a large turn-out for the concert, especially 
to h«ar the harp and the applause showed that all were 
fully satisfied. 

The concert consisted of three parts. The first, 
"Malaguena" by Leconia was well received. "The Swan" 
showed the harp off to perfection, and emphasized the 
cello-like qualities of the violin. "The Ram" by Bohm 
came as a contrast to the slower "Swan." "Oriental" by 
the Russian Cui was well received, and showed the older 
style of Oriental composition. 

After a short break the concert was resumed with the 
emotional Spanish work "Romanza Andaluza", followed 
by the modernistic "Fairy Sailing" of Burleigh. The 
sprightly minuet by Kreisler coming next contrasted beau- 
tifully with the slow religious "Meditation from Thais". 
The rich "First Hungarian Dance" by Brahms closed the 
second period, well accepted by the audience. 

The third portion consisted of the well known "C 
Sharp Minor Nocturne" of Chopin, Gounod's "Ave Maria," 
and a free setting for violin of the "Carman Argonaise" 
and "Habenera" by Sarasate. 

No encores were given, not for lack of applause, but 
because Mrs. Rogers and Mr. Pach had to catch a train. 
Mrs. Rogers' talk on the harp before the beginning of the 
third half v/as very enlightening, and all went out knowing 
far more than when they entered. 

We should like to offer our sincere congratulations 
and thanks to all these artists and wish them every suc- 
cess in their careers. Their concerts are adding a ver>' 
valuable part to our education, as well as providing ex- 
tremely enjoyable evenings.

night .... and to ALEX PATERSON for the refreshments 
after the Friday game .... thanks also to their parents 

for tolerating, and even encouraging, these doings 

thanks to the McGill Old Boys under CHRIS BOVEY who

wonderful week-end. 

HUGHES look chic on Friday night? Hey. DON DEVER- 
ALL. where did you learn to play the piano like that? 
Share and share alike, eh. SLEEPY DON? Did you pick 
up quite a few pointers on photography BRUCE and 
BUNNY? N.B.— Who saw who where when? 

Best news for the hockey team came at the luncheon 
after the L.C.C. game when the Headmaster announced 
that they would be invited back next year to play a series 
of exhibition games on the new rink. 

We should like to suggest that when spring comes 
( silly statement, summer never left) that pile of earth, old 
bricks et al be removed from in front of the classroom 
block — somebody has naively asked if it was originally an 
excavation in which the first football team could be buried 
if they lost to S.A.C. — no. son, it was not — merely a break 


in the steam line to the J.S. . . . first recorded smokers on 
the back terrace this year were BUNNY AUSTIN and 
DES BOGUE who ventured forth on March 3. their pipes 
held firmly bt^tween their back molars as they cleverly 
avoided the larger puddles. 

A new major sport has appeared — ping pong, no less. 
Mr. Batt reports that a shipment of one hundred ping-pong 
balls was sold in record time; the table is located in the 
Littleside changing room in Brent House and is nearly 
always in use — BRUCE LITTLE and BO TIMMINS 
have emerged as stars — Bruce is handy with any kind of 
racket-er-a-racquet .... skiing conditions have not been 
very good this term but the ski camp has been in constant 
use over the week-ends ... a group of thirteen including 
DIE LICK and DOUG LAWSON ventured out on one of 
the few Sundays that were favourable — they reported 
excellent skiing . . . Friday night of the Montreal week-end 
DOC CHESTER were up at the Pat Moss camp — the next 
in — Marty informs us that some Pepsies brought into the 
bunkroom in the evening were frozen solid the next mom- 
ing — they had been brought in just to prevent that little 
thing from happening. 

The Tuck Shop is sporting a sharp new price placard 
with the School crest emblazoned on it — Mr. Green 
made it himself — the only things lacking over there 
now are magazines — what about sending some New 
Boys around the School to collect a stack? .... by popular 
vote, conducted in a few adjoining and nearby rooms, 
DAVE SMITH'S banjo has been chosen the worst musical 
( ?) menace in the School .... the I.R.L. didn't round out 
its scheduled season this year due to adverse climatic con- 
ditions but the LEAFS were way ahead, as your cor- 
respondent predicted — Rabbit League athletes played three 
into-school games this year — with LAI^FIELD, ST. 
HILDA'S, and PICKERING — three prefects played for 



the "Intellectuals" at Lakefield— BONE BYERS, JERRY 
PATERSON. and CHUCK TAYLOR.— Bone and Chuck 
have been two of the most faithful supporters of the 
School teams this year. They never miss a game, even 
Littleside, if they can help it ... . word has got around 
that DON GILLEY has changed his theme song from 
"Sleepy Time Guy" to "So Tired" — probably something to 
do with the Montreal week-end .... PETER SLATER had 
no comment to make on his victory over CHUCK TAYLOR 
in the Chess tournament — he does not attribute it to 
Wheaties, however .... we've just been looking at some 
of the Dance decorations in the Art Room — someone's 
crazy and it isn't us — surrealism, they call it! 

The deadline is breathing down our necks so we will 
have to end — if you read this in the Easter holidays, boys, 
just remember the exams that are coming up and take it 
easy. So long! 

T.C.S. vs. B.S.S. 

The annual heroic battle of the sexes, the debate be- 
tween T.C.S. and B.S.S.. ended this year with the so-called 
weaker sex victorious. At B.S.S. the boys from Trinity 
had to form the Opposition to the motion "Resolved that 
women should be allowed to enter politics". There the 
School was represented by Graeme Huycke, Alex Pater- 
son, and John dePencier. 

The Government submitted for argument that women 
had something definite to offer in the political field, though 
what this was, is not quite clear, and that women were 
every bit as capable in the art and wiles of Government 


as were men, as amply demonstrated by several significant 
historical examples, of whom Joan of Arc was the most 

To summarize the points put forth by the Opposition 
would only serve to confuse the reader. It is enough to 
say that the greater part of their argimient was amusing 
but irrelevant. dePencier, however, put forward some 
serious points for his side, pointing out that a woman's 
place was in the home, where she should raise children, 
and not in the corrupt field of politics. Apart from this, 
our side was very weak in the matter brought forward, 
though perhaps when the hidden meaning behind Huycke's 
point about the Australian rabbit is brought to light, we 
may find that we were actually the stronger side. Pater- 
son's rebuttal was well delivered but failed to sway the 
motion, which in the opinion of the judges, was carried. 

The girls from B.S.S., though not displaying the poise 
and confidence that the boys did in speaking, seemed to 
have at hand a greater supply of material based on facts, 
and to have it better organized. The second and par- 
ticularly the third speaker for the Government spoke well, 
with some conviction. Paterson spoke brilliantly for the 
School, and was, from the point of view of delivery, with- 
out doubt the best speaker of the afternoon. 

After the debate the team was entertained by Miss 
MUlichamp and the debaters of B.S.S., and we are very 
grateful to them for a very pleasant afternoon. 

The School had no more luck in the debate on home 
grounds. Here the girls upheld the negative side of the 
motion and had just as strong an argument as their con- 
freres in Toronto. Of course, one should not expect to 
beat a woman in any argument. 

Speaking for B.S.S. were Miss Barbara Screaton, Miss 
Diana Mather and Miss Joan Salter. Our side was com- 
posed Ross i, Timmins i, and Thompson i. 

Ross i opened the debate with a well-presented speech, 
and stated that women had lately managed to enter the 
professions and industry, while a hundred years ago a 
woman as a medical practitioner would be considered un- 
thinkable. However, times have changed. Similarly, 


women are gradually getting into politics. On the question 
of "the home versus politics", Ross i declared that if 
women have time to leave home for work in the pro- 
fessions and industry, they most certainly have time to 
take part in the latter occupation. Timmins i spoke next 
for the School and in an extremely light and rather 
nebulous speech, pointed out that women have an abim- 
dance of the important talent needed in politics — the talent 
of talking. Thompson i rounded the debate off for the 
School, and stated that a politician's work such as planning 
campaigns was done mostly at home. Therefore, a woman 
in politics would have ample time to take care of the 
children and the house. 

Miss Screaton spoke first for B.S.S., and declared that 
a woman's mind was not suited to politics. Women tend 
to oversimplify problems, and they have the idea that laws 
are a cure for everything. Miss Mather's speech dwelt 
mainly on the "home versus job" point. She pointed out 
that to insure a child's proper upbringing is far more im- 
portant than taking a part in politics. This upbringing is 
a full-time job which should not be interfered with by other 
occupations. Miss Salter closed for the Opposition, and 
showed that women leaders often brought troubles to their 
country. An excellent example was Marie Antoinette. 
Because the Opposition would have no further chance to 
speak, Miss Salter concluded the B.S.S. side of the debate 
with a very good rebuttal. 

While the judges, Mr. and Mrs. Fowler and Mrs. Gar- 
land, retired to consider the verdict, several interesting 
notes were added to the debate by Croll, McDonald, Baker, 
and Heard. When Paterson i, the Speaker, called for a 
division of the House, the Opposition received an over- 
whelming majority of forty votes. Mr. Fowler reported 
that although the debating had been excellent on both 
sides, the judges had awarded the debate to B.S.S. on the 
basis of the elaboration of material. This seems to be a 
major fault in many debates this year. Our speakers are 
able to present their points, but when it comes to develop- 
ing them, the boys fall down. 


The School thanks the B.S.S. team for helping to pro- 
vide us with two excellent debates, and congratulates the 
girls on theii- victories. When girls can argue that wiA\ 
they certainly should be in politics. 


The motion before the House on Friday, February 11, 
was, "Resolved that indi\adual sports are superior to team 
sports". The debate was not up to the usual standards of 
the Society, owing to frequent interruptions, and laughter 
from the floor. Herridge, the Speaker, had to call for 
order several times and reprimand members of the House. 
However, the debate provided an interesting and enter- 
taining evening. 

The first speaker for the Government was Luxton, 
who argued that few men in later life play team sports, 
but rather individual sports such as golf, tennis etc. This 
makes it advisable to learn them while young. Aitken, 
the second speaker for the Government, made a good 
speech considering that he was called upon to debate on 
very short notice. He stressed the fact that individual 
sports developed "Individualism", and personal talents. 
The third speaker for the Government was Manning, who 
delivered a very good speech arguing that individual sports 
are the basis out of which grow team sports, and that the 
main Olympic events are individual sports. Luxton, in his 
two minute rebuttal emphasized especially the cost of 
playing team games. 

VandenBergh spoke first for the Opposition, and con- 
trasted teamwork in sports to co-operation in life. He was 
the best speaker for his side. Deadman, the second speaker 
for the Opposition, brought out the fact that team sports 
offer better possibilities for a group to work together to 
learn to "give and take" and to share victory and defeat. 

CroU, the final speaker, summarized his colleagues' 
arguments, and refuted some of the Government points. 
While the judges. Black and the Patersons retired to make 
their decision, a few remarks from the House were made 
by GUham, MHier ii, and Heard, all of whom were hilari- 


ously received. Then the Speaker called for a division of 
the House, and the motion was defeated 41-17. When the 
judges returned, however, Patcrson i announced that the 
debate had been awarded to the Government, and that 
Manning was the best speaker of the evening. 


On Friday, February 11, a T.C.S. debating team jour- 
neyed to Aurora for an interschool debate with S.A.C. The 
motion was "Resolved that the Olympic Games have be- 
come a factor in world amity". The visitors took the 
negative while the Government consisted of Peter Lewis, 
Hugh Sedgewick, and Peter Bell of the St. Andrew's 
Literary Society. Doheny was the first speaker for the 
negative, followed by McDonald and Ross i. 

The Government opened its argument by pointing out 
that goodwill is fostered by the Games because the athletes 
meet together and learn to respect one another's athletic 
ability which in turn leads to respect of other nations. 
Their argument seemed to lack any concrete references. 
but was well organized and delivered. 

The T.C.S. team brought up numerous points and 
references from the Games, illustrating ill-will that had 
been formed. Their central theme was that since politics 
and other rivalries can never be separated from the athletic 
contests, the Games have never been and never will be a 
success. Our team seemed to suffer from lack of force in 
emphasizing its points. 

The debate was closely contested throughout. It was 
followed by some interesting and humorous speeches from 
the floor. The best point brought out here was that while 
a few thousand may benefit from the best features of the 
Olympics, the press, with its far reaching influence always 
play up the worst features of it and hence creates ill-will 
among millions. 

An authentic note was added by the presence of Mr. 
Lane, an S.A.C. master who competed in the 1948 games. 
He seemed very enthusiastic about the people he had met, 
and the general good-will which seemed almost universal. 


After a division of the House which favoured the 
Government, the judges' decision was announced. Their 
chief criticism was that most of the speeches were read, 
and that sarcasm played too great a part. After a good 
deal of deliberation, S.A.C. was given the verdict by a 2-1 
majority. Although they cited no outstanding speakers, 
Sedgewick was generally considered best for the Govern- 
ment, and Doheny the most effective for the School. 

It is hoped that the debate was instructive to all, and 
that the speakers gained valuable experience in public 

It should also be recorded that the T.C.S. boys were 
very much impressed by the hospitality shown by the 
S.A.C. boys and masters, both before, after and even dur- 
ing, the debate. 


On Saturday, March 5, the U.T.S. debating team won 
the Interschool Championship by defeating our team in 
the Hall. The motion was "Resolved that the Government 
has confidence in the Canadian Broadcasting Corpora- 
tion". Up to this debate U.T.S. and T.C.S. were tied for 
first place with records of two wins and one loss. The 
School defeated U.C.C. and won by forfeit from Ridley. 

The debate was undoubtedly the best held at the 
School this year. All six speakers were very good and 
two at least proved themselves to be of an extremely high 

The Government's argument was based mainly on the 
quality of programmes of the C.B.C. while the Opposition 
tried to show that the C.B.C. is a failure with regard to 
both programmes and organization. The first speaker for 
the Gk)vemment, Sheriff, brought out a very good point 
when he dwelt to some extent to the encouragement of 
native Canadian talent. He cited a great many examples. 
However, the second speaker, Langford, had the most 
points. In a speech which was evidently very well pre- 
pared, he stressed the diversity of programmes, the de- 
velopment of our culture and the coverage of isolated areas 


which the C.B.C. achieves. Landon, the Government's 
last speaker, mentioned the fact that the C.B.C. is a sound 
business interest. Landon also made the rebuttal for the 
Government, in which he achieved very little. This speaker 
seemed too prone to use caustic criticism which would 
appear to be unnecessary in a debate of this type. 

As stated by the judges, the argument of the Opposi- 
tion was rather confusing until the end of the debate. They 
should have explained their course of action before setting 
out in it. Herridge, the first speaker, compared the C.B.C. 
unfavourably to its British counterpart, the B.B.C. He 
deplored the presence of advertising on our national net- 
work. McDonald attempted to draw unhappy parallels 
between the C.B.C. and the privately owned American net- 
works. He claimed that only the poor American pro- 
grammes are piped in by our network. Taylor, the last 
speaker, had excellent delivery but very little to say that 
was new. 

Most of the debaters' time was spent in arguing about 
the quality of the C.B.C. programmes, and here very little 
was accomplished. The Government would declare that 
the quality was excellent only to have the Opposition take 
an entirely different view. It would seem that matters 
such as this should either be supported by irreproachable 
proof or else left entirely out. 

However, both sides brought forth a number of excel- 
lent points, and the delivery of all speakers was likewise 

The judges were out for a considerable time and many 
relevant points were brought out in speeches from the 
floor. Manning. Sifton, and Hughes especially seemed to 
have something of concrete value to say. 

When the Speaker, Doheny, called for a division of the 
House, the motion was defeated by a substantial vote, 

The panel of judges consisted of Messrs. Ryan, Baxter, 
and Farmer all of Port Hope. Upon their return they 
not only gave the reasons for their verdict, but also went 
into their estimate of the values of each speaker in some 
detail. We hope that this policy will be continued in the

future. It is of inestimable value to the debater and is 
also interesting to Members of the House. 

In the opinion of the judges, Sheriff and Langford 
were the best speakers and we heartily endorse this 
opinion. Sheriff spoke exceptionally well and is un- 
doubtedly one of the best speakers to appear at T.C.S. in 
some time. For our side Herridge was very effective. 

The School congratulates U.T.S. on their victory. We 
hope that the calibre of future debates can be kept at the 
same high level. 



The motion before the House was "Resolved that the 
lazy man is happier than the energetic one". Although 
this debate did not keep up to previous high standards, the 
debaters can be consoled by the fact that the topic was an 
extremely difficult one. 

The main point of Adamson, the first speaker of the 
Government, was that the lazy man was inwardly lazy and 
therefore wouldn't be happy unless outwardly lazy. Strathy 
next pointed out the merits of a popular lazy radio per- 
sonality. The third speaker for the Government, Wilding, 
showed that laziness had only to do with physical action 
and that it was a happy mood. 

Dolph, first for the Opposition said that a lazy man 
never had his work done, and was always worrying about 
a test of his ability. Seagram next told the House that 
energetic sports bring mental relief. Harris ii summed up 
the Opposition's case, proving that satisfaction comes from 
activity. Adamson, rebutting for the Government, dis- 
proved a few minor points of the Opposition. 

Our thanks go to the speakers from the floor and the 
judges, Fullerton, Byers, and Paterson ii who gave an 
imanimous decision in favour of the Opposition and cited 
Harris ii as the best speaker of the evening.

Scene: Side Show at the Port Hope Spring Carnival. 

Dramatis Personae: One Carnival Barker. 

Time: The Present. 

Barker: — Here you are, Ladies and Gents, and all you 
little kiddies. Step over to this here tent and see the 
greatest wonders ever made by Mother Nature. For just 
ten cents, the hundredth part of a thousand dollars, you 
have the privilege of looking upon the marvels of the world. 
We do not boast the thousand-headed mouse or the horse 
with three and a half legs, but we do have for you, inside, 
bigger and better marvels. Okay, all you good people who 
have bought tickets, step right this way. If you are not 
comple-te-ly and utter-ly a-mazed, I repeat a-mazed, we 
will gladly give you the booklet, "Ten lessons on how to 


join a sideshow. All right now, as we step into this tent 
here, you ask what is that lig-ht-coloured object on your 
right. That is the one and only WHITE DUCK in captivity. 
We know many other ducks have white feathers, but if you 
will be kind enough to look closely you will see that this 
duck has a white bill, and white feet. He is completely 
white from head to toe. On your left is a round furr^^ 
object. He is the fattest BEAR in the entire universe. 
He is rounder, he is fuller, he is more firmly packed than 
anything in the whole wide world. Further down tJie row 
you can see a wire mesh cage. In its farthest darkest 
corner you can just perceive a boy. He is the wild 
FRENCHMAN. No. he doesn't come from Paris, but from 
the roughest toughest, woolliest towTi of the Quebec north- 
lands. On the right you see a large tub of water with a 
boy inside. What is so wonderful about that you ask? 
Well, just look at that boy. He has been floating and 
bobbing around in that water for 72.7946 hours, and will 
continue to do so indefinitely. He is the only human CORK 
on this earth. If you could see through the roof you 
would see the head of this lad over here. He is the tallest 
person on five and a half continents. We call him GEORGE: 
No lady, not the George that mj^steriously comes through 
closed doors, but George, the man who can open every- 
thing from a tin of soup to the 19th National Bank. In 
this other cage we have another vicious sample of a wild- 
man, the Peruvian Killer ( ?) armed from head to toe, with 
pop-guns. Those sun-glasses merely prevent his eyes from 
going blind over admiring those glistening Charles Atlas 
type muscles he has. 

As we near the end of our magnificent collection of 
specimens, we see here the GNAT. When he speaks, he 
does not speak English, or Chinese, or German, or Latin 
or Spanish or. in fact, any other language. He speaks 

There you have it. You have seen everything. Do 
you all now agree that this show is at least 2.7 times 
better than the one across the way. They only have Gimps 
and Pepsi-cola bottles. We have everything! 






On Saturday. February' 19, the School was glowing- 
with excitement. It was rumoured that the International 
Rabbits were going to play a home game. This would be 
pleasing news to even the least blood-thirsty boy, but the 
other nine-tenths of the School was m ecstasy. And this 
was not the only cause of excitement. The Rabbits were 
going to play St. Hilda's. 

After lunch, dressed in full equipment, (ankle pads 
and shoulder supports) the Rabbits strode confidently 
down to the arena. They realized that they had to get 
there before their opponents, a few of them still had to 
learn to skate. After several vain attempts at putting on 
their skates up-side-down, the Flyers were all out on the 


ice and skating around. Anyway, they were all out on 
the ice. 

They made a big impression, but unfortunately it was 
on themselves, wherever they had come into contact with 
the ice. A few of the more advanced players were under- 
going the painful experience of discovering that it is 
advisable to skate in only one direction at a time. The 
rest were just undergoing a painful experience. 

Then the hockey players arrived — St. Hilda's hockey 
players. Unlike the Rabbits, they were soon ready. It 
could be seen from the start which was the better team. 
but my eye-sight is poor. 

One player for the visitors stood out, or rather up — 
for short periods. She was entered on the score sheet as 
the "Butcher's Wife," but it was whispered that she wasn't 
really. Cries of "McGill" followed her over the ice, but it 
was supposed that they were coming from a couple of 
enthusiastic U. of Montreal boys. 

At the end of the period St. Hilda's filed out, but 
according to Mr. Batt, the Rabbits just "filed". The more 
courageous of the defencemen set out for the far end of 
the rink, encouraging cries of "Bon Voyage" being sent 
after them by the forwards. The unfortunate defencemen 
had to change ends after each period, and it took them a 
long time to do it. 

When the visitors returned to the ice, the Rabbits 
gave out with a quick chorus of "Confucius say," and the 
game was resumed. Mention should here be made of the 
few mentionable Rabbits. McCaughey. covered from head 
to foot by a shin pad, filled the goal. (The bottom six 
inches of it.) Sir Guthrie Woods as forward (he was any- 
thing but backward) spent most of his time rescuing dis- 
tre-ssed damsels, such as those who were drowning in the 
puddles at one end. 

At the end it was announced that the score was tied 
5-5. The Rabbits could easily have scored several more 
goals, but being patriotic, they realized that they were not 
conserving power by making the goal-light work. 

Then the players returned to that delight of the 
hungry athlete, the School supper. However, quite unde- 


terred, versatile St. Hilda's challenged the basketball team. 
The game was arranged for eight-thirty, and the teams 
retired to make preparations. 

It is well known that T.C.S. has a tall basketball team. 
but when they appeared on the floor, there was among 
them a player of extraordinary size. After making a 
spectacular lay-down shot, this player started to wobble 
around the middle. Then with a loud shout it resolved 
itaelf into two basketball players. No doubt a trick learned 
from the guinea-pig. 

Handicapped by their height, or absence thereof, the 
girls did not fare too well. They were aided greatly by 
Tom Lawson, who must recently have turned co-ed. How- 
ever, the School team, imaginatively dressed in the New 
Look of 1880, found their long skirts a nuisance. 

When the visitors retired at half-time, they were 
immediately followed by the team en masse. This just 
shows their chivalrous spirit for they were obviously going 
to see if they could be of any assistance. 

After "Last minute of play!" had been announced five 
or six tunes, the game ended in a tie 28-28. St. Hilda's 
went out for a quick council, and on their return, asked the 
masters if they would accept a challenge. Willing to try 
anything once, the masters accepted. Mr. Hodgetts or- 
ganized a team, and after a practice in which great skill 
was displayed, (some of them could hit the back-board,) 
they were ready to start. 

St. Hilda's immediately took possession of the ball, 
and soon scored. Mr. Hodgetts, at guard, looked for advice 
from the coach, but received none. He passed to Mr. Bums 
who almost succeeded in scoring. 

Although several of tiie masters appeared to be quite 
experienced, (they knew enough not to body-check) the 
only one to score any baskets was Mr. Ketchum, who was 
a dead shot. 

The game ended with St. Hilda's ahead, and after the 
customary cheers, all the teams repaired to the Lodge for 

And as the boys retired to bed, no doubt many of them 
hoped that there would soon be another school debate on 
co-education. —A. Aitken, VIA. 




How many of us have noticed a little room beside the 
swimming pool and wondered what was inside it. Is that 
the place where Mr. Knight repairs his car? Is Mr. Lewis 
making an atomic bomb there? Is Mr. Scott planning an 
irrigation system for his "twenty-thousand gum-trees"? 
No, inside this room is the School Museum. 

As we enter we find on our right a large pointed object 
about six feet tall, which on closer inspection turns out to 
be a narwhal tusk. This was given to the School by Major 
D. L. McKeand ('93-'95) in 1943. In addition to this there 
is an eskimo carving made from a walrus tooth of a sled 
and some dogs which was also given by him. Tummg to 
a somewhat older exhibit we find a small animal known as 
a trilobite. A conservative estimate of its age would be 
in the neighbourhood of fifteen million years. It is about 
four inches long and about two inches wide, arid is the 
ancestor of the grub worm among other things. It was 
foimd on the beach near Cobourg by Mr. Ketchum. 


Few school museums in the world can rival ours in 
Babylonian exhibits. There are a number of clay tablets 
with various writing on them, and one of them from the 
city of Erida. on the site of what was almost certainly the 
garden of Eden, is thought to antedate the great flood 
recorded in the Bible. A small brass seal is supposed to 
have been made to tell of the flood, and there is another 
one which is also supposed to be older than the flood, and 
is supposed to be the only one of its kind on the North 
American continent. All these exhibits were loaned to the 
School museum by the late Col. Stevenson, who was on 
the staff of the School from 1930 until his death in 1946, 


and who spent a number of yeais after the First World 
War on archaeological expeditions in Mesopotamia. 

Among the other exhibits are Chinese brass mon?y. 
dating from the first century of the Christian era, and a 
mug made from the wood of H.M.S. Ganges which was the 
last sailing ship to be the flagship of the British fleet. Also 
in the room are a number of wooden objects known as 
desks, in which sit Mr. Knight's problems class, Mr. Dale's 
Greek class, and various other unfortunates.

No one can say that the students of T.C.S. do not love 
their School, for a large percentage of these lads return 
two or three days before the end of the Easter holidays! 
Let us investigate this early immigration. Upon inquiry 
it is found that the annual "Dance" is to be held and these 
eager youths have not returned to absorb further gems of 
wisdom — this is far from the case. They have come to 
entertain their lady friends at the social functions of the 
year. Even as these lads arrive, Mr. Key's Art Group is 
feverishly putting the finishing touches on their master- 
pieces, and are mounting them in the ballroom. On the 
rare occasions when an affair of this nature is not being 
held at T.C.S. this ballroom is used as a dining-room. 

There is still, hovv'ever, a great deal to be done. First 
of aU CORSAGES must be bought and PAID FOR. After 
this has been taken care of and all females have been con- 
ducted, or abducted, into the School premises, there is left 
the small but none the less important problem of getting 
dressed for the great affair. This ordeal may be run 
through quickly, until one reaches a certain point, the tie. 
Alas, this has proved the stumbling point of many a 
budding Casanova. However, at this point a mob of boys 
descends on Mrs. Scott, and after a few minutes she sends 
them away smiling, and secure in the knowledge that they 
are now the models of well dressed gentlemen, although 
within a few hours they will belie their gentlemanly 


It would be superfluous to describe the dance itself, 
for the reader can surely picture the graceful scene, as 
the Trinity lads led by Alex Hughes enjoy an old time 
waltz. For some of the staff the dance provides a head- 
ache. The bursal', for instance, is probably still trying to 
get in touch with a few Old Boys who have not yet paid 
their corsage bills. 

Soon the great affair is ended, and except for an ex- 
cursion to the ski camp there is nothing left but to wish 
the girls a tearful goodbye, but it was fun while it lasted, 

wasn't it? ?

The last snow of winter is left on the ground. 
As a bed for the snowdrops God left it around. 
It's slowly departing, it fades, then it dies, 
With one weeping mourner, the wind, when she sigha. 

This act is over; the second one starts, 

The last snow is bringing the spring to these parts. 

The crocuses fight for the loving sun's ray, 

The last snow is leaving for many a day.

It was a cold, dark December morning. A fog was 
rolling in from the North Sea, obscuring everything more 
than twenty feet away from me. I was standing on West- 
minster Bridge, gazing into the vast nothingness far 
below. A lone, deep whistle chortled from a tug passing 
beneath, barely visible through the wafts of hanging mist. 
All traffic had by this time stopped. No autos or pedes- 
trians were about. I was alone, trying to think, but the 
more I stared, the more vacant my mind became. 

The year was 1929. I was. or had been, an accountant 
in the head office of a well-known shipping firm ; only that 
week I had been discharged — "with regret". The regret 
was much more on my side, but I was Just one of the many 
white-collar workers thrown out of work at the very be- 
ginning of the crash. The stock market panic had by this 


time spread from America, and it was evident that such 
companies as the one that employed me would for some 
time be running only on paper. 

I was, as they say, "at sea"; I needed time to find my 
bearings. I was still trying to collect my thoughts — to 
concentrate — to formulate a concrete plan to continue a 
worthwhile existence. I had no desire to let things ride 
for a time, and, as I was still young and optimistically 
ambitious, I had not yet found that this is sometimes 

There I was, meditating, detached from even the bleak 
stillness of the London air, when I heard footsteps ap- 
proaching, slowly, heavily. From out of the shadow 
appeared a tall, stooped figure clad in an enveloping dark 
overcoat and a black homburg. He turned slightly to pass 
me and raised his head. In the faint light I made out the 
features of Edward Charles, a man who came into the 
office often on business, and with whom I had spoken 
several times a propos of some obscure business details. 

"Mr. Charles!" I exclaimed. 

He stopped just after having walked by, turned around 
and looked at me querulously. 

Mr, Charles, you remember me? At Braceburn and 

"Oh, yes. Yes." 

"Coincidence meeting you here on such a night, Mr. 
Charles. Taking a walk, sir?" 

"Um, yes. Just a breather." 

He leaned en the railing beside me, hardly hearing 
what I said. He was lost in dreams. Or perhaps, wishing 
he were in a dream. I remembered that someone had told 
me he had lost heavily on the market. No one knew how 
much; some said, everything. Yes, perhaps that was what 
he v/as pondering. 

"Something on your mind, sir?" I asked, trying to 
break into his little world. 

No reply came. So I turned to gaze into the fog 
once more. Then, minutes later: 

"Something terrible is on my mind. Ghastly. Have 
you ever though of - of - killing yourself?" 


"Mr. Charles, sir!" 

"Oh, don't be so surprised. I've lost eveiy thing I ever 
had. Money, influence, false friends. I never did have a 
family of my own." 

"You're not the only one, sir." 

"That doesn't help me any, does it?" 

He started walking across the bridge, and I followed 
him, wondering what I would hear. As we walked side by 
side, slowly advancing, stumbling on cracks in the pave- 
ment, he remained silent. We reached the south end of 
the bridge and turned off to the side-street — or at least he 
did. and I dragged along beside him. 

We reached some docks, some of the miles and miles 
of docks that jut out rudely into the Thames. Then we 
stopped. Mr. Charles drew from his overcoat pocket a 
silver cigarette case, fingered a cigarette, and extended the 
case toward me. 


"Yes. thanks. Cold. Makes me want one." 

Another pause followed, not awkward to me, for I 
could see a blissful expression soften the lines on his face 
as he took a few puffs on the cigarette. 

"Did you ever think." he said, sighing with satisfac- 
tion, "what it would be like if you died this very minute? 
A quick, almost painless death? What you would think in 
those last few seconds?" 

"Please, Mr. Charles, don't think about such things. 
I am no escapist, myself." 

"Oh. very well, then. I shouldn't discuss anything 
like that." 

A strained expression suddenly struck his face, and 
he glanced at his watch. 

"I say. it's very late, you know." he muttered. "I 
must leave you now. I'm going this way. You'll be want- 
ing to go back over the bridge?" 

"Yes. sir." 

"Glad to 've seen you again. Keep yourself well, won't 

"I'll try, sir. Goodbye." 



He walked off into the fog. I stood vacantly for a 
minute or two. Then I turned on my heels and walked 
back to the bridge. As I walked once again along the 
familiar railing I thought how nice a man was this Edward 
Charles. 'He'll pull through his troubles all right. Even 
though he's had it worse than most people,' I thought to 
myself. 'If only I can keep going as well.' 

A spirit of resolution swept over me. I would do well. 
I must do well. I leaned over the railing once more, one 
last time, to gaze into the mist, which had cleared a great 
deal by this time. The pale light of a distant moon was 
reflected in the murky waters. And I half-spoke aloud: 

"That receding fog is the symbol of my mind. It's 
clearing up. My mind's clearing up too! Gk)odbye, River 

I started to move off, but in moving, my glance fell 
on the now distinct water forty feet below. 

There on the water, far beneath me, floating a few 
feet upstream, was a black homburg hat. 

— D. C. McDonald, Form ViS. 


I remember years ago, 
When I was a child of five. 
Then without worry I could thrive. 
Free of conscience to say "No!" 

Then I'd contemplate our cat, 
Pull its furry, feathery tail. 
Listen to its angry wail, 
Chuckling evilly when it spat. 

Free was I from worldly care. 
Just demand, and it was there. 
Free was I to pull Joan's hair, 
If she seemed to me unfair. 

Free was I from unkind rule, 
Safely at home, just Nanny to fool, 
Away from noise and teachers cruel, 
Not then harness' d by a school. 


Gone, gone those carefree days! 

"Grone with the wind" on its various ways. 
Gfone those parties, picnics, plays, 
Gone those happy ignorant days.

A fine morning mist hung over Lower Town. The 
washing on the shanty clothes lines sagged, grey and life- 
less, in the humid air. Steam was rising from the reeds 
on the river mud banks and when the eight o'clock freight 
rumbled past, the dogs did not try to bark. The ensuing 
silence was more acute than usual but the after-breakfast 
sounds were not intensified and seemed heavy in the air. 
Occasionally a bull frog croaked from the river and all 
the while engines shunted disconsolately in the yard. It 
was just another summer morning in shanty town and the 
sun was quietly chasing away the mist. 

Young Mrs. Kolysck threw the dish water into the 
yard and absently watched the chickens as they scurried 
busily away. Hank, her husband, had been gone an hour. 
Hank was a construction laborer and earned three dollars 
a day. He went to work at seven and would return, white 
with chalk dust and terribly tired, at eight every night. 
He was not able to speak English very well and so (he ex- 
plained) he couldn't get a better job. Young Mrs. Kolysck 
loved her husband and would not have minded any priva- 
tion, but that her children were so young and so often 

At that moment Johnny came out of the shack. 
Johnny, her eldest child, was a thin, but handsome, boy of 

"Hey, mom, kin I go and find Joe. kin I, mom?" 
"Sure, son," said his mother, "sure you kin." 
Her voice was thin and weary, and although she was 
not yet twenty-five years of age, there was a peevish, 
middle-aged note in her words. Johnny jumped down from 
the porch and ran along "Main Street", his small bare feet 
throwing up spurts of dust. Joe lived four houses down, 


and as his friend approached he scrambled out to meet 
hini; he had been waiting. Johnny and Joe were in- 
separable — they were of the same age and were, of course, 
both Polacks. A doctor would have told you that Joe had 
tuberculosis, but his dry coughing served only to irritate 
his tired parents. Johnny and Joe, Americans by birth, 
but both with foreign names, did not go to school, and so 
they were always looking for things to do. Today, by 
unspoken agreement, they were going over the bridge to 
the other side of the river, to try to catch a few catfish. 

The two grubby figures left shanty town, crossed the 
railway tracks, passed through the tenement district and 
were soon in the better part of town. Their fathers had 
been at work for nearly two hours but now the morning 
office rush was on. Fascinated, as always, by the stream- 
ing traffic — neither had ever ridden in a car — they stood 
side by side on the hot sidewalk, and revelled in the s^hts 
and sounds of a busy city. Once a big, shiny limousine 
slid by; an erect chauffeur in dark green livery held the 
ivory wheel with practised hands and a large, fat man 
reclined in the back seat. The large man, like the boys, 
was bom with a foreign name. He was Isaac Rosencrantz. 
and he owned a great part of the city's most valuable land, 
and he was enormously wealthy. But the boys did not 
know this and would not have cared if they had. 

Then they began to walk again and soon were over 
the bridge and out of the city, wandering along the river 

Suddenly Johnny asked, 

"Joe, wouldja like to be real rich and have a real big 
car. huh, Joe?" 

Joe looked thoughtful. 

"Yes," he said, "yes, I guess so." 

"What wouldja buy if you were real rich, Joe?" 

The thought was too overwhelming; finally he said 
slowly, "I dunno, Johnny." 

"Gee. I dunno either." 

The boys were not great talkers and the conversation 
ended. Shortly they were sitting on the wharf absently 
dangling their lines in the muddy water. Now it was very 


hot and the only sounds were the buzzing of curious flies, 
the idle lapping of the water on the shore, and Joe cough- 
ing a little.

Men are curious, ceasing never 

To query and develop 

Nature's pattern wherein they found, 

Me, with whom came terror. 

I am small yet awesome, 

I am to be feared, 

I besmirch the timelong pace 

Of cycles here on earth. 

'Twould better be and easier 

If man had let me be 

Uncovered by his labour, 

Unknown and still to be. 

For I may cause the finish, 

The crash and then the calm, 

I may be the undoing, 

I. the atom bomb.

"Time, like an ever-flowing stream. 

Bears all its sons away. 

They fly, forgotten, as a dream 

Dies at the opening day." 
Eons ago, when the universe was created, time began. 
Billions upon billions of years passed while the majestic 
and mighty universe shaped itself and then it begat earth. 
Earth itself after millions upon millions of years cooled 
down and man appeared. Thousands upon thousands of 
years later, civilization was bom, and still hundreds upon 
hundreds of years rolled away before the world of to-day 
appeared and modern life assumed the garb of helter- 
skelter split second existence. Thus we see that the im- 


portance of time has rapidly been compressed, and com- 
pressed, like a geometric progression into a less and less 
period of time. 

And thus may be traced the progress of clocks. Pre- 
sumably, if some being had lived m the stars ages ago and 
had a clock, and say this creature was immortal, he might 
have built a huge impressive pendulum which ticked once 
ever\' million years. There is a tremendous difference 
between 17th and 18th century clocks and those of to-day. 
To-day's are little, insignificant, extremely fragile con- 
glomerations of machinery. They are composed of a highly 
delicate system of cx)gs and tiny springs. Compare these 
playthings, which in an impatient, almost childish, manner 
chatter off fifths and tenths of seconds, with the mahogany 
beauties of yesterday. The stately old "grandfathers" of 
our ancestors would look with haughty scorn upon these 
instruments which dared to compare their ticks with the 
majestic swaying of their twenty poupd pendulums. And 
the shrill alarm clock of to-day, which is the bane of 
modem civilization, would surely have been ostracized by 
the clock of yesteryear with its sonorous ding-dong. It 
might truly be said that clocks are the chart of social 

Taking a clock apart is something we all enjoy doing. 
Putting it back together again is a feat we would all like 
to be able to perform. There is something about a clock, 
some compelling fascination of the turning teethed wheels 
and the spinning brass which tempts experiment. Alas! the 
mysteries of the clock are many and the joyful excitement 
of removing a key cog to fix a broken spring turns into 
humiliation as the inevitable trip to the little old Swiss 
clockmaker is made. 

Why are the Swiss so renowned? What fine gift have 
these hardy mountaineers that enables them to solve 
problems as tough as the proverbial Gordian Knot? What 
fine or divine sense of precision and mechanical sureness 
has been donated to them? No one will ever know. But 
the beauty of a well-made clock, the wonderful and ornate 
carvings and skill of the exterior woodwork and the in- 
genuity and originality of design will always amaze 


Qocks have come a long way — from Alfred's burning 
candle to those of to-day. But please let them stop here! 
Progress is nice, but moderation is better. Let clocks never 
become atomic for, heaven only knows, what fun would 
there be in dissecting an atomic clock ? ! !

We hear it said frequently that the age of miracles is 
past. We are told that the marvellous acts of healing of 
Our Lord were the last to be performed, and that since 
then humanity has been left to its own devices, without 
divine intervention. If this is so, it is the fault of no one 
but man himself. 

Much speculation has been exchanged between philo- 
sophers and theologians as to the nature of the miracles 
Christ performed. Some attribute their success to a type 
of hypnotism under the influence of which the invalid 
cured himself. Some maintain that history has greatly 
exaggerated the extent of these acts, and that Jesus was 
merely a very astute psychologist. Others hold fast to the 
belief that it was by divine power, and divine power alone, 
that Our Lord cured the bodies and cleansed the spirits of 
those who caame to him for help. 

But one thing is certain, apart from the cause and 
inner nature of these miracles, they all were based on one 
prime requisite — absolute faith. The cured had to have 
complete faith in the power of the Curer. Miracles can 
come only in an age when men have faith in their God, 
and are willing to believe in the great gift he is bestowing 
on them. 

What right, then, have Christians in this age to claim 
that God has neglected them? With his little skepticisms, 
half-beliefs and all too careful compromises, modem man 
has stopped up the very source of God's will to help him — 
faith. He treats his God like the stock of a newly-formed 
company, liable to go bankrupt at any moment. He has 
lost the way, and prays to the Lord for guidance, but to 


lean on God— unthinkable. "Never put all your eggs in 
one basket", says the practical financial adviser. He cries 
to God for proof of his existence so that he may believe, 
but fears to search for that proof in his own soul. He 
has neither the courage to seize complete faith, or com- 
plete disbelief, but walks in the dusky shadow between the 
hall of light and the hall of black splendor. 

The age of miracles is certainly not an age like this. 
Try as he may, not until man has turned again to GJod. 
will that great age return.

On the back page of "The Territorial Monthly" an 
incident was described in these Imes: 

"A fire at OoramuUoo, sixty miles north of Port 
Augusta, destroyed the homestead and nearby fields of 
Mr. H. Jenkins. No lives were lost." 

This was just a common occurrence to anybody who 
knew the country. But to the sick sheep-runner, Mr. Jen- 
kins, it was a trial which he won in losing. 

A great four-lane highway stretched across the island- 
continent. It was a black ribbon in a sea of yellow, running 
smoothly, like icing on a birthday cake, over hills and 
plains. It was the connecting line between the North and 
Port Augusta. It was the vital lifeline for army supplies 
built to Darwin in the dark days of '42. 

A huge army truck crawled across the still desert. 
Occasionally it was hidden by a heap of drifted sand, 
officially called a hill. The driver wiped his face; the tem- 
perature must be near 120 . He cursed the monotonous 
horizon and sighed with relief when he reached the Mac- 
Kinley Ranges. This region was said to be more difficult, 
but it was less tiring on the eyes. 

The truck rose over a hill and roared down into the 
more fertile valley of OoramuUoo, straightened out, and 
then began the steep climb out again. The driver changed 
gear. They said this district was the worst bit, but he 


couldn't see why. The engine back-fired. Sparks flew out 
the exhaust. He wrenched his gear down again, and the 
truck struggled over the hill. 

The sparks scattered across the road like mercury 
dropped onto a tray. Most of them died out when they 
were caught by the ditch, but one little spark was blown 
across by a sudden breeze and settled in a little patch of 
hay, the next to be reaped. 

The Ooramulloo Valley had the last cultivated land in 
the territory until Alice Springs, many miles north. Here. 
fifty years ago. Herbert Jenkins and two friends had 
sought a sanctuary from the harsh outer world. A little 
river, which dried up in summer to a chain of water-holes, 
had enriched the soil enough to produce hay for their 

After a very wet winter, in which ten inches of rain 
had fallen, there had been a very bad drought, which 
parched the growing hay until it was an inflammable as 
paper. For some time the spark had great difficulty keep- 
ing alive, but eventually it singed its way through to a 
soft breeze. It grew warm. It grew brighter, and it 
matured into a flame. 

From then on the fire stealthily spread through the 
base of the field. An old sheep-dog outside the homestead 
howled a warning. A fat aborigine waddled out of the 
kitchen, brushed the flies away, and shaded his dark eyes 
from the relentless midday sun. All he saw were some 
rabbits leaving the end field. He swore at the dog in pidgin 
English for waking him up, and the screen-door slammed 
behind him as he returned to his nap. 

The fire became aggressive, increased its territory, 
and began a newly-reaped field. A stockman coming out 
to wet his face at the pump, turned back, and gave warning. 

As it was shearing time, there were many men around 
the homestead. Some grabbed shovels, some took sticks, 
and others carried the fire extinguishers. They advanced 
in an orderly line, as men well trained in such matters. 

The fire was in the hay fields beside the highway and 
the river. Between it and the homestead there was a 
horse-shoe bend in the river which enclosed about four 
acres of scrub. 


The fire broke out from the fields and, driven by a hot 
desert wind, it started across the scrub. The men tried to 
dig a trench across to stop it, but the flames climbed up 
the bark of an old gum tree, burnt off a limb, and fell with 
it over the trench. A man rushed up with an extinguisher, 
stumbled over an outstretched root, broke his apparatus, 
and failed to quench it. 

The fire advanced, a solid wall of heat about ten feet 
high, defying the men to prevent it. The evil yellow flajiies 
flashed at a bush, grappled with it, and destroyed it. The 
men fell back to the garden and feverishly tried to dig a 
trench across, but the mocking fire crackled with laughter 
and passed around. 

The homestead was evacuated. The sick old man, its 
o\\'ner, was carried to safety across the river with his 
meagre furniture. A group of curly-haired natives, who 
had lived on his charity, too lazy to work, stared at the 
advancing fire in wonder. 

The flames swept up the garden path and took hold 
of the old wooden house. Soon the result of fifty years of 
patient labor was crumbling under the torrent. Its roof 
fell in, its supporting beams toppling to the ground. 

Then the rain came, and what had been a flickering 
sea of orange and yellow became a hissing patch of desolate 
blackness. Water dripped from blackened branches, and 
formed puddles in the ruined house. 

When the rain stopped they carried old Herbert Jen- 
kins out from his neighbor's house to see the wreckage. Li 
his hand, which was rough from much toiling and withered 
with age, he held a piece of paper and a thick-leaded pencil. 
As he peered through the quivering hot air he drew on his 
paper the plans for a new house. 

"There's still plenty of good scrub," he said indom- 
itably. "It's just another fire."

"Great flakes of Arctic snow whipped against the 
Mountie's weather-beaten face, slashing into his flesh with 


the force of a ninety-mile-an-hour hurricane behind 
them . . . . " 

Our poor, poor Mounties — trudging along after the 
lunatic Peter MacTavish, Hudson's Bay Company factor at 
Cape Goosepimple for some forty-five years — trudging 
through the icy barrens of Keewatin — little realizes bow 
great a part he is taking in the fulfilment of justice and 
the denouement of a James Oliver Curwood thriller. Nor 
does he realize that James Oliver Curwood, and all the 
other imaginative writers of this sort, are making hiin 
drive into "biting" flakes of "Aictic" snow. His adven- 
tures, we all must understand, are being used as propa- 
ganda to make one hundred and forty million Americans, 
and any other illiterates who like detective stories, Perrj' 
Mason thrillers, etc., think that Canada is a forbidding 
waste, colored pink on the map because the Union Jack 
hangs over the H.B.C. forts and the Northwest Mounted's 
isolated tents. 

Impressions of a Hollywood Movie: The audience is 
shown a magnificent, yet barren and desolate, stietch of 
prairie, stretchmg far off into the unknown. Here and 
there a cactus or a brier-bush is seen, but there are few 
trees in sight, as they have all been cut down for use as 
totem poles. Into this vista rides Nelson Eddy, sitting- 
erect on a magnificent horse, in blaring red coat (Nelson 
Eddy, that is) and black breeches with diamond-studded 
yellow stripes running down the side. His rich, deep voice 
thrills all the Crees hiding in nearby bushes, and they leap 
out to reward his efforts, not with rotten tomatoes, but 
with valuable antiques like tomahawks. Having withstood 
an onslaught worse than that at Custer's Last Stand, Nel- 
son, our hero, rescues Jeanette MacDonald from the 
clutches of the Indian chief. The final scene shows Jean- 
ette and Nelson on their faithful horses, followed by a host 
of Mounties, looking to us as if they had just come from 
the opening of Parliament, making their way back to the 
centre of social life, the fort, in the light of the setting 
sun. Of course, they are all ending the drama musically 
by warbling "The Road to Mandalay". The only thing 
missing to the observant eye is a standard bearer carrying 
a fluttering flag with "Excelsior" emblazoned on it. 


Such is the Hollywood version of life in Canada. Or 
at least, that was it some ten years ago. Now the scope 
of the American book and screen writers has widened: 
Canada is no longer only the home of Northwest Mounties 
and nomadic Indians and blizzards that blind the fur- 
traders and prospectors in the Yukon; now Canada's popu- 
lation is much more interesting. Our barren wastes are 
now the breeding-place of Russian spies, of Nazi, saboteurs, 
and of deaf-mutes. 

In case you forget what I mean by these remarks, let 
me refresh your memory briefly on how Hollj'w^ood has 
given the cultured American movie-goer these interesting 

A recent movie has given us a dramatic portrayal of 
life on Cape Breton Island. Here snow is not so common, 
but the elements are brought in, as cold salt sprays dash 
over the rocky shores. Amongst such dismal surround- 
ings a poor deaf-mute girl v/anders near a lonely house. 
She is obviously waiting for the fishing-boat to return 
from the Grand Banks. Such a pitiful, moving scene has 
never been exhibited in U.S. theaters before. William 
Randolph Hearst urges that all the sign-language experts 
in America be sent "up North" to help his poor, deprived, 
colonial neighbors. 

Foreign spies are crawling all over North America. 
Men in black capes are appearing mysteriously from 
cavernous embassies. But the Mounties come to the rescue 
again! Authentic reports from Canada's capital, a small 
village with an inspiring imitation granite building tower- 
mg above a canoe-laden stream, are flashed on the Ameri- 
can screens. "God save Canada, our little neighbor in the 
Northland." cries the grateful American press, for this is 
truth — simple, unadulterated truth, except that some 
Hollywood maidens have been substituted for the Eskimo 

Another expose of the barren, defenceless British 
colony was revealed during the late War, when, according 
to Hollywood, Nazi saboteurs were landing on Canada's 
bleak, frozen shores to wreak havoc on American war

Thus, from the fields of literature and cinema have 
come authoritative descriptions of life north of the 49th 
Parallel. Even the greatest American contribution to 
culture, the "comic" strips, have ventured into stories of 
Canada, and that other great influence in American life — 
radio — has added a Canadian touch here and there. An 
excellent example is this: During the war, while American 
troops and engineers were helping build the Alaska High- 
way, a new radio serial was begun on an American net- 
work. This was to tell the story of the women on the 
frontier one hundred years ago in their covered wagons, 
who were, and I quote, "opening up the American West, 
just as other Americans are opening up the great, unex- 
plored Canadian Northwest even now!" 

All this informative interest in the tiny neighbor of 
Canada! Ah, well, American cultural progress marches

The most pertinent feature in the world of sports today 
is "professionalism". This does not only concern the play 
for pay men. but also the type of game these men play 
and its effect on other teams. 

Graphic illustrations of this aspect of sports can be 
found in hockey and basketball. In this country, so called 
amateur teams and even some secondary school teams 
play a brand of professional hockey. Granted there is 
spirit on these teams, but the type of play is similar to 
that in pro leagues. Playing the man instead of the puck; 
the complete absence of sportsmanship; the idea, "well, 
we can't win the game, let's really get those fellows," are 
common. In basketball the attitude is not as wide-spread, 
but a great number of teams disregard half of the techni- 
que of the game, defense, to please the crowd. Other sports 
enter into this feature also, football for instance. The pro 
game is a precisioned masterpiece of strategy, each tackle, 
each block, is designed to hurt the other man as much as 
possible. Now college teams have an army of scouts 
plotting the opponents' plays, and so on. 

Another salient point in professionalism in sports, is 
"shamateurism". In the Big Four everyone knows how 
much the players are paid, and yet the amateur status of 
the league was upheld in court two years ago. Amateur 
boxing and hockey are in the same category. If the players 
don't receive cash, they do receive merchandise checks for 



the same amount. These ai'o just the same as bank checks, 
all you have to do is buy one piece of merchandise, and 
obtain the residue of the amount in cash. 

This "shamateurism" and the professional style of 
play, both of which are prevalent in our sports today, are 
destroying the true objective of sports. Sports are in- 
tended to be a type of relaxation, and also an aid in form- 
ing a strong character. What has "professionalism" done 
for this end?. — nothing. The situation has got so serious 
that only some institutions like our own, and a few other 
places, still uphold sports for what they are. The job of 
bringing to justice this evil is the people's. "Shamateurism" 
should be abolished, and teams that play sports for the 
pleasure of playing, should remember the objective of all

This year's hockey season was one of the best in the 
history of the School, with Bigside and Middleside unde- 
feated and Littleside losing only two games. Although 
hampered by the almost continual lack of ice, all of the 
sides gave brilliant accounts of themselves. And the 
material advancing through the junior teams, along with 
the great gift of the Peter Campbell Memorial artificial ice 
rink, indicate that many good seasons are ahead. 

The first hockey team this year completed their first 
imdefeated season. Coached by Mr. Humble, and led by 


captain Don Fullerton's brilliant play, the team displayed 
a calibre of hockey seldom seen in secondary schools. The 
squad moved through their thirteen game schedule with 
ease, and captured first place in the Independant Prep 
School Group, with two contests being conceded to them 
because of lack of ice. 

The powerful first line combination of Don Fullerton. 
Bruce Little and Bill Austin scored fifty-nine goals, and 
displayed superlative form in all of their games. The 
second line consisting of Herb Moffitt and Ralph Cooke 
with Dick Robarts and Brem Rogers alternating, although 
not scoring to such a great extent, was a strong, smooth 
two-way unit. John dePencier developed into a steady 
goaler. On the defense, Bruce Miller's sensational play 
was the highlight of many of the games. He garnered 
fifteen goals and was an excellent play-maker and play- 
breaker. Nige Thompson and Reed Scowen were "heads- 
up'' players who threw many a jolt into the opposition. 
John McGill and Don Deverall also were reliable on the 
defensive wall. 

— J.J.M.P. 


Won 13-1. 

The first hockey team, playing their best game of the 
season to date overwhelmed Pickering 13-1. Although out- 
played in every department, the game Pickering squad 
played hard throughout, but the School team was too 
smooth on the offense and too rugged on the defense to 
be beaten. 

Trinity scored their first goal while Thompson was 
penalized at the two-minute mark, as Robarts knocked in 
a rebound. From then on the game was never in doubt, 
as Little and Fullerton combined to give the team a three 
goal lead at the end of the first period. The second stanza 
saw a deluge of scoring as the School increased its ad- 
vantage to 9-1. Bakes' tally for Pickering came after 
Miller's duo of blue-line shots. The final frame found the 
team blanking the homesters while scoring four more 
goals. Little counted his fourth and fifth scores and Ful- 


lerton completed his hat-trick, as both of these men 

Pickering:— Bull, Adams, Mould. Biikes, O'Neill, Mitchell, 
Snider, Underbill, Rundlo. Hyslop, Bainbridge, McCrae, 'Ilmmins, 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
Won 7-3. 

The Bigside squad completed a clean sweep of their 
Independent Prep School Leagaie schedule, trimming St. 
Andrew's 7-3. 

The game opened on slushy ice, which got progres- 
sively worse as play advanced. The "Saints" started off 
at a fast clip outscoring the School 3-1 in the first frame, 
but the team pumped home four goals in the second period, 
and two more in the third, to win vAth ease. Miller, who 
replaced sick left-winger Bill Austin, tallied twice as did 
Fullerton and Little. But it was the defensive work and 
back-checking of Scowen and Fullerton which highlighted 
the game. 

S.A.C: — Currie, Lawrence, Wansborough, Shirley, King, 
Welsh, Malone, Powter, Errlngton, McLaughlin, Sutton. 

SCHOOL vs. L.P.S. 
Won 3-1 and 4-3. 

The team captured their eighth and ninth consecutive 
victories with wins over the Grove, in a home and home 
series within a week. The first game, at Lakefield, was a 
rough, hard-fought battle, with thirteen minor penalties 
handed out. The return match was close in scoring, but 
the School had a definite edge in play. 

Playing on good ice and before an enthusiastic Lake- 
field crowd, the first team handed the Grove a 3-1 setback 
in their initial meeting of the season. The game was 
tough and fast throughout with both teams tending to play 
the man instead of the puck. Trinity jumped into a one 
goal lead at the end of the first-period on an excellent 
passing display by the first line with Fullerton scoring. 
The middle stanza was a repetition of the first, the only 
goal, scored by Arnoldi for Lakefield, coming near the 


twenty minute mark. The final period, as the first two, 
was penalty studded; however, the team outguesstxi the 
rugged Grove defensemen to pepper the goalie with shots. 
Robarts tallied the winning goal at 11.41 from Cooke, and 
soon afterwards Austin scored to consolidate our lead. 

In a scrappy game on melting ice the team scored a 
close 4-3 triumph over L.P.S. Although out-shot and out- 
skated throughout most of the game, the plucky Grove 
team put on a good display, throwing up a strong defense. 
FuUerton scored the only goal of the first period on a solo 
rush. The second fram^ saw the visitors use a fast break 
to good advantage, with defenseman Gibson tallying on 
two rink length dashes within five minutes. Fullerton 
evened the score at 18.21 on a picture play from Austin. 
The last stanza saw Lakefield fall two goals behind, and 
then stage a thrilling rally in which they came within an 
ace of tying the game. Fullerton completed his hat-trick 
soon after the opening whistle, carrying right in on the 
goalie. Cooke scored the last Trinity goal on a corner shot 
from the left side, leaving the School in the lead by two 
goals with five minutes to play. Then L.P.S. opened a 
sustained offensive which netted them a goal by Clarke 
from Gibson's pass-out. The School was hard-pressed but 
a tightly-knit defense chilled the Lakefield scoring chances. 
Gibson was a tower of strength for the losers, while Ful- 
lerton again was the work-horse for Trinity. 

L.P.S.: — March, Drew, Gibson, Boyd, Easson, Wilks, Clarke, 
Arnoldi, Ketchum, Withers, McCullagh, Bain. 

SCHOOL vs. B.R.C. 
Won 7-5. 

In spite of a pre-game injury which kept captain and 
centre star Don Fullerton benched, a determined Trinity 
team settled down before a large crowd at Varsity Arena 
to nip their old Ridley rivals 7-5, in what proved to be one 
of the best games of the season. Throughout the hard- 
fought contest the School had a definite edge, and in the 
final stages our better conditioning was evident. 

The first period saw both teams play cautious hockey, 
the only score being a nice goal by Little on a two-man 


rush with Miller during a B.R.C. penalty. The play in the 
second period became more open as the defense combina- 
tion of Dick and Dave Court netted a trio of tallies for 
Ridley. Miller and Austin scored for the School to leave 
a 3-3 tie entering the final stanza. 

Moffitt put Trinity one goal up, then Hendrie and 
Sutton .scored Ridley's final talhes. In the last seven 
minutes the team outplayed their rivals by a wide marg^. 
with McGill, Austin and Miller carrying the scoring punch. 
The Court brothers were the mainstays of the B.R.C. team, 
scoring three goals and assisting on the other two. The 
School team played well as a unit, outshooting their 
opponents 2-1. dePencier, after some trouble with an 
elusive pair of goalie pads, played a good game. 

B.R.C: — Court maj., Court min., Keeron, Sutton, Hendrie, 
Rankin, Walton, S. Steedman, A. Steedman, Glascoe, Storm, Bain, 


The hockey team completed their first undefeated 
season at the Montreal Forum, beating Bishop's College 
School 7-0 and Lower Canada College 5-1. Bishops, playing 
the same style of defensive hockey as last year, lacked the 
speed and co-ordination of former seasons. Although 
Steams, their captain, was the fastest man on the ice, they 
had no one with sufficient speed to effectively use their 
centre-ice break which resulted in four of their goals 
against us last year. The Lower Canada squad played a 
disorganized, rugged type of hockey, and our team had 
little trouble defeating them, while Mooney in the L.C.C. 
nets played a spectacular game. 

The first period of the B.C.S. game was unorganized, 
lifeless hockey, but the School came to life in the second 
stanza to rap in two goals by Austin and Fullerton. The 
final twenty minutes saw the team completely outplay 
their opponents, and the score would have been much 
higher except for Lindsay's fine effort in the B.C.S. goal. 
Fullerton led the scoring parade with two tallies, one of 
them being a masterpiece of passing with his linemates 
Little and Austin. Moffitt scored before Little banged 
home a goal after another stellar passing play, Scowen,

ended the scoring with a tally near the end of the game. 
The sound play of Bishop's defenseman, Steams, and Don 
Fullerton's hat-trick highlighted the game. dePencier 
gained a well deserved shut-out. 

The Lower Canada game opened at a fast clip as Ful- 
lerton scored within the first thirty seconds, and Little 
soon afterwards. But the team failed to take advantage 
of their numerous opportunities in the final two periods. 
The only score in a rugged second period was the first of 
Miller's three goals which he completed in the final stanza. 
All of his goals were low, hard drives from the blue-line, 
hitting the net beautifully. Moffitt's stick-handling and 
Scowen's heads-up play on defense were stand-outs for the 
School, while for L.C.C. Watson, their only scorer, and 
Mooney, who played a splendid game in goal, were best.

The third team completed their abbreviated four game 
schedule undefeated. Mr. Armstrong again coached the 
squad which had a depth of excellent material. Many of 
the players showed creditably in the Bigside House game 
and Maier, Emery ii, and Hinder played one game for the 
first team. 

The four games were home and home contests with 
U.C.C. and S.A.C. The School had a definite edge in all 
of the games. The team took Upper Canada 10 to 5 in 
Toronto and 7 to 5 in Port Hope, then defeated Saint 
Andrew's 7 to 2 away and 7 to 5 at home. The only com- 
plaint the squad had was that they played so few games, 
but in spite of the weather Middleside had a most enjoyable 

The team displayed two powerful forward combina- 
tions, Thompson iii, Maier and Lick, and McDerment, Hin- 
der and Emery ii, as well as a tight knit defense featured 
by the smooth duo of Southam and Bruce. Manning, in 
goal, played very well throughout the schedule. High 
scorer for the season was Thompson iii with seven goals 
followed closely by Lick with six tallies. It is hard to pick 
individual stars from a squad which depended mainly on 
team-play for its strength, however, McDerment, Lick 
Thompson iii, Maier, and Southam showed excellent form

Coached by Mr. Hass, the fifth team turned in a suc- 
cessful season winning four of their six games. The squad 


exhibited a wealth of good material, a fighting spirit, and 
a fine display of team-work. 

The schedule opened well with an 11 to 4 win over 
U.C.C. and a close 5 to 4 verdict over Appleby. The return 
match with Upper Canada found the team trailing 3 to 2 
entering the final period, but a six goal outburst, featured 
by MacGregor's five tallies, gave the School a well earned 
8 to 6 victory. The only encounter with S.A.C. was easily 
taken 8 to 4, with the line of Ketchum, Seagram and Tim- 
mins ii knocking home five goals. Both contests with Lake- 
field were lost. The first game saw the squad caught too 
often by the fast breaking Grove forwards, to lose their 
first game of the season 9 to 7. After scoring three quick 
tallies in the opening period, Lakefield had to fight hard 
to gain a victory in the return match. The School rallied 
with two goals by Church and were all around the winners' 
net at the final whistle.

Due to the lack of ice the I.R.L. has not been able to 
finish its schedule. However, sudden-death playoffs are 
being arranged for the leaders in the two divisions. "A" 
group, Toronto and Montreal, "B" group, Boston and 
Detroit. For exhibition contests the league was split into 
two sections, the "Intellectuals" and the "Ineffectuals". 
The former squad lost to Pickering thirds 3-2 and to Lake- 
field thirds 3-0, then bounced back to defeat the Grove on 
home ice 4-0. This team also tied St. Hilda's College 5-5. 
The latter squad played Lakefield's rabbits twice winning 
both contests, 11-3 and 3-0. A vote of thanks must be 
given to Mr. Gwynne-Timothy for his organization and 
spirit, and Strathy i for his managing. It would take too 
many pages to write of all the magnificent bunnies, but a 
few should get special mention. 

Jack Dennys; excellent goalie, but couldn't keep his 
stick on the ice. 


"Bone" Byers and Jerry Paterson; good defensemcn 
in any league; unorganized, that is. 

"Doc" Savage, Molson, and Reford; often sat dovnTi on 
the job. 

Chuck Taylor. Alec Paterson. "Sleepy" Gilley; talked 
a lot. 

Jim Ross and McCaughey ; the long and the short of it. 

The rest; good sports and jolly good fellows. 

To all; "Requiescat in paeem". 


Complying with the tradition of the annual house 
games, the ice was very poor. The Scottmen won two of 
the three matches, while Mr. Bagley's boys managed to 
salvage one. 

Brent captured the Peter Campbell Cup for Bigside 
8-4. Bethune, with only three first team players, playedi 
an inspired brand of hockey. After a close opening period, 
in which they had a 3-2 edge in scoring, Brent House 
rammed home five goals with clock-work precision. Robarts 
and Timmins i were the sparkplugs of Bethune's fine show- 
ing, while Little with five goals, Fullerton and Miller were 
outstanding for Brent. 

Bethune scored their only victory with a close 8-7 
verdict in the Middleside contest. Brent held a first period 
lead, but Bethune unleashed a powerful attack, led by 
Maier, which carried them to their well-deserv^ed win. 
Thompson iii with four goals, and Gordon played well for 

The Littleside game was a rought contest, with the 
man instead of the puck being the centre of interest. How- 
ever, the condition of the ice made passing almost im- 
possible. Wright led Brent to its 5-1 victory with a trio 
of tallies, and Church was best for Bethune. 

Brent: dePencier, MillcM', Scowen, Thompson i, Deverall, 
McGill, P\illerton, Moffitt, Little, McDerment. 

Bethune:- Manning, Harris i, Timmins i, Hinder, Lick, 
Robarts, Rogers i, Maier, Heard. 




Although not enjoying consistent good form, the first 
basketball team exhibited flashes of brilliance. The entire 
squad was created by Mr. Hodgetts from last year's 
Juniors and played a creditable brand of ball throughout 
the season. In Prep School League play the team won five 
out of its eight game schedule, to finish in second place. 
However, they saved their best performances for Montreal, 
wallopping L.C.C. and losing a heart breaker to McGill 
University Intennediates by one point. 

Captain Don Greenwood was a tower of strength at 
left forward, a consistent two way performer. Centre 
Dave Pierce had his bad days, but managed to hoop an 
average of twelve points per game. Guard Doug Lawson 
often carried the team single-handedly through lax periods 
of play. Ernie Howard was a good rebounder and a pep- 
per-pot, but was at a disavantage in height. Alex Hughes 
improved into a first class player. John Wood and Jock 
Smith played well at guard. 

The Juniors and Bantams also had good seasons. 
Rawlinson, Cleland, Bovey, Croll and Luxton showed par- 
ticularly well for the Junior team. The bulk of the Big- 
side squad is returning, and we have great hopes for next 
year. — J.J.M.P. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 
Lost 50-37 and 41-19 

The first team was trimmed twice by a smooth U.T.S. 
five on scores of 50 to 37 and 41 to 19. In the initial con- 
test, played on our home floor, the School's zone defense 


kept the score even at the mid-way mark. The second 
half saw Trinity play lax ball, and the visitors took full 
advantage of their break. With Fleck using a deadly hook- 
shot, the U.T.S. forwards beat our guards time and again. 
The game ended with the Toronto squad leading 50 to 37, 
due mainly to the smooth Fawcett-Fleck duo, the latter 
netting twenty-two points. T.C.S. was led by Greenwood, 
Hughes and Pierce with eight points each. 

In the return game the School showed their worst 
form of the season and were soundly drubbed 41 to 19. The 
first half was remarkable for its low score: 9 to 6, in favour 
of Trinity. The team scored ten points in the final frame 
compared to thirty-five for U.T.S. The score was con- 
clusively indicative of the play with the homesters' for- 
ward wall of Fawcett, Dainty and Laily displaying some 
excellent basketball. With a final score of 41 to 19, the 
only light for our team was Doug Lawson who played a 
fine game, scoring eight points and leading the squad 

U.T.S.^ — Reid, Fleck, Ponton, Fawcett, Laily, Ferguson, Dsiinty, 
McKay, Morris, Langstaff, Loukras. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
Won 37-36 and 40-37 

The emphasis that Mr. Hodgetts placed on foul shoot- 
ing this year certainly proved its worth in the home and 
home series with S.A.C. The margin of victory for the 
School in both games was in foul shots. 

At Aurora, the team took an eaily lead led by Pierce 
and Howard, and estabhshed a 17 to 12 margin at the half. 
In the second stanza both squads played a defensive type 
of ball, well suited to the small floor. S.A.C. relied on 
long set shots and, with Patterson and Crandall i par- 
ticularly accurate, sliced the School's lead to four points 
at the three-quarter mark. Outscored and outfought in 
the final quarter. Trinity at one time was three points 
behind. Ernie Howard, however, sank a foul-shot in the 
last seconds to throw the game into overtime. Once again 
inspired by the cool play of Howard, the team scored five 
points on a basket by Greenwood and a basket and foul- 


shot by the same Howard. Saint Andrew's tried hard, 
but when the final whistle blew Trinity stood as the victors, 
37 to 36. 

In the return match, the same situation developed. 
T.C.S., led by Pierce who made a brilliant twenty-one point 
effort in the first half, were comfortably in the lead 26 to 
12. The second half saw the "Saints" fight back with 
characteristic spirit, and gradually cut the School's margin 
to just three points. Pierce played exceptional ball for the 
homesters, while Clavell was best for S.A.C. Final score. 
T.C.S. 40; S.A.C. 37. 

S.A.C. — Murrell, Patterson, Crandall i, Crandall ii, Clavell. 
Smith, Taylor, MacLeod, Worling. 

Won 54-20; Lost 44-41 

In the first game with Pickering the Bigside squad 
marched to a 54 to 20 victory. Using the fast-break to 
good advantage, the School out-drove and out-scored the 
visitors to lead 23 to 10 at half time. The second frame 
saw the School quintet keep up the pressure, and, employ- 
ing a tight zone defense, blocked Pickering effectively while 
r-unning up a high score. The team used their opponents' 
fouls to good advantage. Pierce and Greenwood shone for 
the School with nineteen and fourteen markers respec- 
tively, while Umphrey was best for the losers. 

The return match found a much improved and a more 
determined outfit, which downed the first team 44 to 41. 
Playing a cautious zone defense and featuring deadly set- 
shots from the corners, Pickering held a 20 to 11 margin 
at the half. The team floundered badly in the third quar- 
ter and Pickering led by as much as fifteen points at times. 
With minutes remaining, the visitors shifted to a man-to- 
man defense, and ended the game with what Mr. Hodgetts 
termed, "a real T.C.S. finish". With Greenwood, Pierce 
and Howard all hitting the basket effectively, the School 
drove the homesters off their feet and cut their lead to a 
single point. But, in the final second, Umphrey broke 
alone to score a bucket and "ice" the game for the hosts. 


Umphrey at centre played consistently well, as did Wylie 
and Ivanier. Greenwood was our mainstay with eighteen 
points, ably supported by Pierce and Howard. 

Pickering:— Umphrey, Reynolds, Buck, Daboll, Wylie, Lanier, 
Whitney, Cohen, Arnold, MacDonald, Bunce, Savedren. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
Won 56-29 

In their return match with U.C.C, played in Toronto 
the firsts completely outplayed their rivals, and easily de- 
feated them 5&-29. The game was wide open, and T.C.S. 
look advantage of all their opportunities and capitalized on 
U.C.C. errors. The first half saw the team doubling Upper 
Canada's score, 30-15, led by tall Dave Pierce with 10 and 
captain Don Greenwood with 11. In the second frame the 
Seniors went further ahead and then slackened on their 
defense. They retained their supremacy in the last quarter, 
however, allowing their opponents only five points. Von 
Drattin played well for U.C.C. and in doing so picked up 
twelve points, while Greenwood amassed seventeen for the 
School. Lawson and peppery Ernie Howard also were out- 

U.C.C. Diakero, Flecher, Von Drattin, Akeson, Wallace, 
WeUs, Campbell, Hukks, Kennedy, MacMillan, McKim, Warren. 

Montreal Grames 

In their mid-season journey to Montreal, the first 
basketball team played Lower Canada College and McGill 
University Intermediates. The School triumphed over 
L.C.C. 59 to 23, but lost a thrilling game to McGill 34 to 33. 

Agamst Lower Canada, the School jumped into an 
early lead and never relinquished it. With the Pierce- 
Greenwood combination working effectively, the team 
rolled to a 29 to 9 lead at the half. The second-string 
played a good deal of the final frame and halted the L.C.C. 
hoopsters with a tight defense, while tallying a number of 
points themselves. The finish saw Trinity worthy victors 
by 59 to 23. Pierce racked-up twenty-four points for the 


School, while Hughes with eleven and Greenwood with ten 
played well. Winship was best for the losers. 

The following evening, at the Currie Memorial Gyin., 
the School faced the McGill Intermediates. The Fledmen 
were not as good as had been expected, but were fast and 
experienced artists, while our team had an edge in height 
and conditioning. 

McGill took a 6 to lead early in the game, which 
the School quickly tied-up. Dave Pierce, although closely 
checked, led the team in scoring. The first frame was close 
all the way, with McGill holding a 22 to 19 lead. In the 
second half the two teams were separated by a single point 
for most of the time, with both squads playiiig good bas- 
ketball. From the three-quarter mark on the teams matched 
baskets. In the dying minutes Smith sank a nice hook-shot 
to give the School a one point advantage, but the Redmen 
came back to drop a long set-shot and take the lead 34 to 
33. Trinity fought hard, but were unable to score again. 
Howard and Pierce were outstanding, and the whole team 
gave an admirable showing. Stewart and Thomas starred 
for McGill. 

L.C.C. — Brown, Cork, Johnston, Evans, Larman, Ratcliffe, 
Stephens, Winship. 

McGill U. — Stewart, Thomas, Bembridge, White, Schimiatehee, 
Segall, Brown. 

Exhibition Games 

The School first five has played two more exhibition 
games. They lost the first game to a powerful Alpha Delt 
quintet, which consisted mainly of Old Boys. The A.D.'s 
definitely asserted themselves in the first quarter, romping 
to a 16-2 lead, and then played defensive ball, scoring only 
one point in the second quarter. In the third frame the 
School played better and held the visitors to only seven 
points, while collecting twelve themselves. Then, led by 
Rogers and Gaunt the fraternity ran all over the School 
bringing the score to a final 42-27. Rogers with nineteen, 
and Gaunt with sixteen were best for the A.D.'s. while 
Greenwood with thirteen was Trinity's high scorer. 


Soon after the Montreal weekend, the first team played 
a surprisingly good game against the Port Hope Interme- 
diates, defeating them 35-30. The School showed better 
play throughout, working the ball in with great precision, 
but still were imable to prevent the Port Hope team from 
dropping long shots in which they were very accurate. It 
was a thrilling game to watch, with the score being a 16-16 
tie at half time. Hughes played a strong game for the 
"maroon and black" scoring fifteen points, and Junior 
Johnny Rawlinson exhibited good form in connecting for 
nine. Port Hope scoring was evenly distributed over the 
team, with Thompson playing very well. 

Alpha Delts:-- Mustard, Evans, Brewer, Rogers, Gaunt, Steven- 
son, Walts, Houson, McMarrich, McArthur. 

Port Hope: — Berry, Bullock, Hunt, Bongard, Plagerman, Loes, 
Giller, Van Buren, Fulford, Reeves, Thompson, Trenouth.

This year the Junior Basketball team had its most 
successful season since the game was organized at the 
School, coming second in its league. The team dropped its 
first two games played against U.C.C. and U.T.S. The 
former was extremely close, the score being 38-33, while 
in the second the squad lost 40-25. In this last game 
Rawlinson picked up eleven points. 

The following game was against Saint Andrew's and 
resulted in a 49-37 victory for the School. The team played 
fast and well-organized ball, with the forward line of 
Qeland, Baker and Bovey getting twelve points apiece. The 
return game with the "Saints" was very low scoring, the 
School having control of most of the play and winning by 
the score of 23-12. Cleland and Baker played well in this 
game, as did Croll in his position at guard. 

Against Pickering College the Juniors came up with 
one win and a tied game. The first was again very close, 
with the final score 26-25. The score at three-quarter time 
was 23-14 in favour of Pickering, but in the dying moments 
the School made a come-back, and Bovey sank two foul 
shots in the last minute to win the game. Luxton played 
inspired ball in this game. The return contest, which was 
played on the Pickering floor, ended in a 42-42 tie. It was 
very exciting and hard-played. The first half saw the 
homesters advance into a 20-14 lead. Then in the third 
frame T.C.S. surged ahead by 29-28, and from then on 
there was a see-saw scoring battle. During the final stanza 
three men from the T.C.S. first line were put off on fouls, 
and due to a lack of subs, for the last minute and a half 
the team had only four men on the floor. The whole team 
performed very well in this game, and Bovey with sixteen 
points was high scorer. 

The second game of the series with U.C.C. resulted 
in a 23-18 victory for the Juniors. They played a very 
hard game against a team that had previously beaten 
them. The score was tied all the way through till the last 
quarter when the School pulled away from the Upper 
Canada team. Baker and Rawlinson both played well in 
this game. 


The second contest with U.T.S. was another thriller 
with the School trying desperately to win in order to force 
a play-off, the game finally ended with a 26-22 win for the 
Toronto school. Throughout the game the U.T.S. squad 
kept slightly ahead, and despite the determined effort by 
Trinity in the final frame, retained this lead. Rawlinson 
played excellently in this game, garnering twelve points. 

On the whole the team had a wonderful season, and 
all thanks should go to Mr. Hodgetts for the work he put 
into the coaching of it. It was a well-balanced team, but 
special mention should go to Johnny Rawlinson who played 
in exceptional style throughout the season, and is a good 
prospect for next year's first team. 

T.C.S. Juniors: — Guards, Croll (Capt), Luxton (Vice-Capt.), 
Lewis, Thomson iv, Emery i; centres, Baker, Gundy; forwards,

For the first time, bantam basketball has become an 
organized squad, practicing under coach Dignam. The 
team had a three game schedule, winning two and losing 
the other by the scant margin of two points. 

In their first match the bantams defeated U.C.C. 29 
to 26 in a small gymnasium which hampered both teams, 
DuMoulin being high scorer for the School with twelve 
points. Pickering edged the squad 28 to 26 in a thrilling 
contest; Walrath, who starred, scored eleven points. Roll- 
ing up a 20 to 1 lead at half time, the team coasted to a 
30 to 22 victory over Pickering in the return engagement. 
DuMoulin, who tallied sixteen points in the final game, and 
Walrath, were the outstanding performers throughout the 

Team: — Forwards, WaJrath (Capt), McGregor i (Vice-Capt),

For many years squash has been an important part 
of the athletic activities of the School. This year more 
squash matches have been played than usual; the number- 
of players is greater than in most other sports, and there 
are more and better junior players. Although not winning 
the bulk of their schedule, the squash team has exhibited 
a fine calibre of play throughout the season. 


The sixth annual Little Big Four Squash Meet between 
B.R.C., U.C.C. and T.C.S.. for the John Scott Gibson Mem- 
orial Cup, was held again at the Badminton and Racquets 
Club in Toronto. Ridley won the title for the second year 
in a row, losing only one match; the School won five and 
Upper Canada one. Ridley's superlative duo of Cameron 
and Toppin played excellent squash. 

Jerry Paterson lost a closely contested match to Top- 
pin, with both players showing very good form in many 
long rallies. Allan Aitken was the only player to capture 
both of his matches for Trinity.

The Ontario Jimior Squash Championships were held 
at the Carleton Club in Toronto on February 26. The title 
this year was captured by Cameron of Ridley who moved 


through the qualifying rounds with ease to beat his school- 
mate Toppin in the finals. The School entered two players, 
Ross i and Paterson i, and each of them gave good per- 
formances. Jim Ross captured his first round match 3-0. 
but fell before the hard-hitting Toppin in his next contest. 
Jerry Paterson moved through the first two rounds with 
ease, but dropped a well-played match to the champion in 
the semi-finals. There were three Old Boys in the tourna- 
ment, Bill Brewer, Rick Gaunt and Neville Conyers. Brewer 
advanced to the semi-finals before he lost to Toppin. 


The School squash team dropped three exhibition 
matches, two before the Little Big Four meet, to the Alpha 
Delt Fraternity and Badminton and Racquets. The A.D.'s 
won 5-3, with Ernie Howard and Scott scoring double vic- 
tories. In a home and home series with the B. & R. Club 
the School was trounced 6-1 and 10-1, both matches for 
the School being won by Captain Jerry Paterson.

Junior House Tournament 

For the first time a Junior House Tournament was held 
this year, with Brent and Bethime tying two matches each. 
The competition was held to encourage Junior players, as 
no cup is presented. All games were exceptionally well 
played. Slater beat Bruce 3-2 and Church beat Symons 
3-0 for Bethune's victories, while Seagram beat Mac- 
Gregor 3-1 and McDerment beat Newcomb 3-2 for Brent's 

Junior Squash Tournament 

Bruce captured the Watts Cup, emblematic of the 
Junior Championship with a 3-1 victory over Symons, in 
an exciting finals match. Both advanced easily through 
preliminary rounds, Bruce defeating Church and Symons 
defeating Slater in the semi-finals. 


The only competition entered so far by the Gym. team, 
was won easily. Thompson i, Welsford and Symons repre- 
sented the School in the Toronto and District Secondary 
Schools Championships at Northern Vocational School on 
March 5, gaining a 362 point advantage over their closest 
rivals. Individually all three exhibited excellent form 
Welsford placed first, Thompson second and Symons fifth. 
Welsford also took first in the high-bar and parallel-bar 
exercises, and Thompson took second place in the high-bai- 
and parallel-bar and third place in the box-horse.

Brent 62. Bethune 33. 

In their only competitive trial before their Little Big 
Four meet, the School swimmers put on a good display 
before a packed crowd in the pool. Brent nearly doubled 
the score of Bethune, although all the races were close, in 
the first house meet since 1946, when Brent was also the 
victor. The Brent senior medley relay team broke the 
closed record in 1 minute 13.3 seconds, while Southam tied 
the closed record in the forty yard junior backstroke in 
26.5 seconds. Hughes i displayed excellent diving form, 
especially in the voluntary dives, to win the event easily. 
Scoring was held on a 5, 3, 1. basis for Senior and Open 
events, and 3, 2, 1 for Jimior.

Due to extremely poor snow conditions there has been 
a bare minimum of skiing this year. Although no com- 
petitions have been entered with other clubs, both of the 
School championships have been held. The Bill Strong 



Memorial Trophy, for slalom and down-hill, was won by 
Emery i. The Northumberland Ski Club's hills were 
covered only by a thin coating of snow and an underlining 
ice, and all the contestants iinished within 6.9 seconds of 
the winner on total time calculated from two runs for 
each event. The new cup, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Clif- 
ford Sifton for cross-country, was captured by Lewis. This 
race was also held at Northumberland because of the lack 
of snow at the School's Pat Moss ski camp.

With the advent of spring, badminton is again becom- 
ing very popular. The three courts are in use at all avail- 
able times, and the calibre of play is good. The only 
deterring fact against this fast game is the exorbitant 
price of birds. 

Miss Wilkin organized a round-robin tournament 
which was run off on March 12. Scowen and Chitty took 
top honors, with Lick and Heard runners-up. The tourney 
was followed by refreshments, for which the contestants 
are grateful to Miss Wilkin. 


Foi' the fust time in many years the game of ping- 
pong has become popular in the School. The table has 
been placed in the basement of Brent House, and some 
seventy -five enthusiastic players use it consistently. 


The policy of giving what is known as "Extra Colours" 
has been revived this year. These are awarded to boys 
on any side who have played extremely well but not quite 
as well as the "Colours". Boys who get these are allowed 
all the privileges of those who earn full colours.

Distinction Gaps 

At a recent meeting of the Colour Committee, the 
members unanimously voted Distinction Caps to Stratford, 
Fullerton and Miller i. 

Stratford was not only one of the best men in his posi- 
tion that the School has ever had, but he was also an 
inspiring leader on the football field and was a fine example 
in sportsmanship to his team-mates. 

Fullerton not only excelled in his playing ability, but 
was also an inspiration to his fellow hockey players as a 
leader and a sportsman. 

Miller i was one of the most skilful hockey players 
that the School has ever had. and he gave a consistently 
brilliant performance throughout the season.

The most noteworthj' event to occur in the J.S. since 
we last went to press was undoubtedly our skating trip on 
Rice Lake. 

It is only very occasionally that the ice on the lake is 
free of snow and our last such jaunt took place some five 
years ago. This year the skating was excellent and every- 
body enjoyed the sense of freedom one feels in being able 
to skate unfettered by the surrounding walls of a rink. 
Some energetic souls covered some ten miles or more 
before their return to the School. 

One J.S. master returned with a souvenir of the trip 
in the form of a very cracked windshield! This occurred 
while he was showing the assembled multitude just how 
one should lift a puck off the ice over a snowbank — on to 
the windshield of HIS car! ! 

Floor hockey is rapidly assuming the importance of a 
major sport in the J.S. Play is fast, furious — and very 
strenuous ! 


We are always hearing the questions, "Why should I 
learn Latin. French, Algebra Geometry, Geography. His- 
tory, or Literature? Why should I listen to half -hour 
musical selections or try to appreciate art? I don't intend 
to be a Latin scholar, a mathematician, a history professor, 
or a worshipper of Shakespeare. What possible use can 
these subjects be to my future life, and why should I learn 

I think that many people see no reason for the study 
of these at all. Their sole ambition is to enter into a 
thriving business, and achieve, what so many other people 
try to achieve, that state in which one can live without 
working. Usually, these people are never satisfied and are 
always trying to climb a little higher in wealth. This 
greed for money often drives out all the pleasures and 
opportunities for the enjoyment of life. As it is always 


being said, if one is not happy with a little money, one will 
not be happy with a great deal of it. 

Then what is the purpose of life? If money won't 
give you pleasure, what will? (I don't mean to say that 
the object of life is to fmd pleasure, but there are pleasures 
in life which many people miss.) In my opinion, movies, 
many of which are worthless, or other such cheap amuse- 
ments are not sufficient to give one the needed enjoyment. 
What is needed is the unequalled pleasure obtained from 
an interest and understanding in some field — maybe one of 
the arts, maybe some field of thought or theory. At any 
rate, to enjoy these things. one must know and understand 
them. Musical concerts, art displays, but mainly books, 
may be a source of satisfying enjoyment; but first one 
must know something about them to obtain this enjoyment. 

That is what these "useless" subjects do for us. They 
build the foundations for later pleasures. 

On the whole, I think that the persons who look down 
on these "useless" subjects, will regret it after they have 
earned their "millions" and then have no object left for 
them in life.

The real history of the bicycle began in the reign of 
King Gteorge IV. It was a two-wheeled contraption pro- 
pelled by the feet of the rider. Bicycles had been used in 
ancient Egypt but it was not until the early 19th Century 
that an important type came out. In 1817, Baron Karl 


von Drais, a CJennan, introduced into England a machine 
which was named "Draisine" after him. The rider rested 
part of his weight on a wooden bar resting on the back 
and front wheel; the rider propelled it by kicking the 
ground. He steered by turning a handle on the front 
wheel which was connected to it by a rod. 

The name bicycle was first used in 1865. The bicycle 
was called the "Boneshaker" because it had heavy wooden 
frame and iron tires. In 1868 light metal wheels and wire 
spokes and solid rubber tires came out. 

In its development, the front wheel, formerly of the 
same size, grew larger and larger until it was at least five 
feet in diameter. Then the front wheel grew smaller until 
it was the same size as the back one. In an attempt to 
make bicycles less dangerous the "Star" was developed in 
America. This bicycle had both wheels of the same size. 

Bicycling clubs were formed all over the world. Many 
kinds of races were held. In 1900, E. Hale covered 32,496 
miles in one hundred and thirteen days. Later in 1909, a 
Frenchman rode more than 62 miles in an hour. In our 
day the bicycle is used in pleasure and in work.

By the scarlet streaks of sunset 
Which a dying day brings, 
A lone bird, slowly flying, 
Wearily westward wings. 

Away from a land of winter 
With snow, and wind, and ice, 
To a sunny southern shelter 
In a palmy paradise. 

Flee blithe bird! The clutching chains 
Of this bleak cold form fast. 
Flee to the warmth and comfort 
Where the jewels of summer last. 

(Piiotos by A. J. R. Dennys, Hsq. )

The glow of sunset fades, as comes 
The night's pale starry dome; 
But safe among the sunny climes 
The bird has fotmd its home.

Rags looked through the window of Mrs. Fitzgruntle's 
house with a disconsolate expression. The sight of the 
smug little Pekinese was imbearable. Artemidoms lay on 
a red satin pillow^ where old ladies would pet and fawn 
over him, and where other dogs could see and envy him. 
"Why should he be there? He can't catch rats like me! 
He didn't thrash the village bulldog like I did!" These 
were the thoughts that ran through the head of the little 
fox-terrier as he gazed at the pet. 

But wait! A dark form was creeping in through the 
door and silently closing it. Then came a scream, and the 
sound of something heavy falling. The dark form, a man, 
came rushing out of the house with the smug Artemidoms 
under one arm and a large pearl necklace in his free land. 

Rags thought to himself that it would be a good 
chance to get a nip at the fat little body that was whining 
in such a cowardly fashion. He set off in pursuit of the 
burglar and started to bark and growl at the Pekinese. 
The burglar stopped and prepared to kick Rags, but just 
at that moment the village policeman ran up and snapped 
the handcuffs on him. 

In an instant Rags found himself in the centre of a 
large crowd, being petted and fed and then Mrs. Fitz- 
gruntle sent out her butler to bring him in. 

As Rags lay on the red satin pillow, and looked down 
at Artemidoms sprawled uncomfortably on the floor, he 
decided that perhaps life was worth living after all.

The sky in the East was slowly growing grey with the 
feeble light of the dawn. Then as the faint light deepened 
into an orange glow, the marshes came to life. In the 
forests the birds flew about chirping happily their morning 
song. A kingfisher plummeted dowTi into the water send- 
ing up a small cloud of spray and bringing up a small fish, 
and flying gracefully away. Now the sun slowly rose above 
the horizon bathing the lake in its soft, red light. A mother 
duck leading her brood swam around the water weeds in. 
quest of frogs. A great Blue Heron swooped down upon 
a mudbank planning to catch the unwary fish. Now the 
dawn rose to its full splendour, the sun's rays piercing even 
the depths of the forest, waking its inhabitants, and send- 
mg up small columns of mist from the water. Then, as I 
looked upon the marshes in the peaceful and majestic 
beauty of the early dawn, I heard the purr of an outboard 
motor which marked the beginning of another day.

Scarface was a huge cachalot whale. He was called 
by this name because of the broad scar which ran down 
the side of his head. 

The cachalot was oddly out of place in the wanner 
waters of the Pacific but it had a reason. Scarface was 
searching for his mate. His mate had travelled through 
these waters, weeks before, and he was now combing them 
in search of her. 

Weeks later, when he came to the surface after a long 
period underwater, he saw in the distance a whaling ship, 
and not far from it a fountain of spume which came from 
a whale like himself. He heard the familiar cry of "blows" 
and saw the spume vanish. Sounding, he came up under 
the boat which was closing in for the kill. With a tremen- 
dous blow of his head, he split the boat from stem to 
stem. Just then, the rope that was attached to the har- 
poon kinked and the harpoon jerked free. Scarface paid 
no attention to the shouts and cries of the floundering men. 


He had found his mate, and they swam in the direction of 
the setting sun.

I sat crouched behind a tree waiting for the signal to 
attack. The wind howled through the trees and helped 
to make the atmosphere more alarming. As I looked behind 
me, I could see the forms of my friends huddled behind 
trees or bushes. 

Looking over my various weapons I found that I did 
not have enough ammunition. Not daring to move for 
fear the enemy might see me, I just hoped — hoped that I 
could get along with what I had. I thought of all the 
pleasant, pleasant days I had spent around the fireplace 
at home playing with my brother and .... 

I heard the hooting of an owl three times; that was 
the signal for which I w^as waiting. Springing to my feet 
I raced across the field — the snowball fight was on!

The herd moved slowly southw^ard. The elephants 
lumbered casually along through the jungle, now and then 
plucking a clump of vegetation from the overhanging 

From some thick undergrowth to the rear of the herd 
there peered a pair of hungry green eyes. A little elephant 
calf lagged behind the rest and the striped form of a tiger 
leaped from the bushes. The calf screamed as the weight 
of the hungry tiger descended upon its back. 

The mother wheeled around and with a terrific blast 
of trumpeting she charged the assassin. There was a brief 
scuffle and the tiger bounded away through the heavy 
undergrowth. The enraged mother tossed her great grey 
head and charged after the tiger. Through the jungle she 
crashed, her trunk lashing the air. The tiger slunk quickly 
and silently just ahead of the elephant. Monkeys scattered 


up the trees gibbering their indignation. Tossing trees 
iiside, strengthened doubly by her anger, she rifled the 
jungle for the tiger. 

She found him clinging halfway up a tree with great 
drops of blood oozing from a wound which he had received 
in the scuffle. With a shriek she grabbed him with her trunk 
and tossed him high into the air and caught him on her 
tusks. With a muffled groan the big cat spitted himself 
on the ivory knives. Throwing him to the ground the 
elephant trampled him flat, her bloodshot eyes rolling m 
rage. With crimson tusks she sought the rest of the herd 
and her child. Her rage now abated she trotted along 
with them satisfied that the calf had been avenged.

As the sun went down under the horizon, a gradual 
quiet spread over the land. The lake stilled in sleep. From 
the bushes came the sound of mice moving among the long 
grass and dry leaves. Crickets began to sing. Then the 
sinister hoot of an owl came floating over the tree-tops. 
The mice scurried to their holes and all was still again. If 
listening attentively, one could hear the cautious "thump 
— thump" of a rabbit making its way across a glade in a 
forest; behind him a fox was following! 

Suddenly the moonlight hit us. Above the world it 
lay, serene and quiet, its rays catching and reflecting on 
the ripples of the lake made a picturesque pattern, with a 
fish occasionally jumping out of the lake into the air, only 
to fall back in again with a loud "slap". In the moon's 
light the world was almost as bright as day. 

But if the forest was interesting before the moon came 
up, it was more so after. The fox could now be seen 
stalking the rabbit, placing each foot carefully on the 
ground so as not to make any noise. Suddenly, as he 
came within striking distance the fox leapt! A scream of 
agony sprang from the throat of the rabbit and ended in 
a gurgle, and the fox, calmly swinging the dead rabbit over 
his shoulder, trotted off to his den on the other side of 
the forest. 


The owl was now outlined against the silvery moon 
as he gave voice to his protests and problems. It seemed 
that all the other animals had formed a chorus and were 
repeating what the owl said. Without doubt, I thought, 
moonlight was the most interesting of all times in the

Eine Kleine Nachtmasik 

The Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is made up of four parts: 
the Allegro, the Romanza. the Minueto, and the Rondo. 
Mozart has made this piece of music unique by alternating 
its volume greatly, and by the miraculous way that he has 
worked one theme into another. 

The Allegro has the loud and soft spots in predom- 
inating variation. There is a mincing melody, typical of 
a FVench ballet, and a loud sombre tune, reminiscent of 
many Russian ballets. There are various tliemes in the 
Allegro which entangle themselves in an amazing melodious 
manner. This movement ends in a rousing flourish of 
strings and percussion instruments. 

Throughout the Romanza the violin holds an important 
place. The whole theme is one of slow melancholy. The 
rolling thunderous base is created by a double-bass violin, 
and it emphasizes the forcible treble. The tune brings out 
Mozart's great art of slipping from flats to naturals in a 
most ingenious way. 

The Minueto is my favourite movement, and the tunes 
in it are, I think, some of the most beautiful and delightful 
ever written. The treble, violin piece is especially beauti- 
ful and I only wish that its pretty theme was repeated 
more often. The Minueto ends as it begins, in a strong, 
spirited, rousing manner. 

The concluding Rondo has a curious style to it. It 
commences with a pretty tripping theme in which each 
note seems to catch itself up, then it breaks into a full 
swinging tune. These movements are interchanged and a 
loud crashing volley is sometimes inserted. Then comes 


a rolling cascade of sound like a miniature waterfall 
gradually widening into a broad river. The movement 
ends with several tunes in a loud harmony, a fitting finish 
for this masterpiece. -R- Jackson, Form III. 



Captain of Hockey F. L. R. Jackman 

Vice-Captain M. C. dePencier 

With only a very few practices, the team got off to a 
shaky start in our first game at St. Andrew's. Since then 
the improvement has been very noticeable and a good 
brand of hockey was played in all the remaining games of 
the schedule. 

Team play was perhaps the outstanding feature of 
the season and the forward lines developed some very 
good "pattern" plays around the goal. Most of the season's 
goals came from plays such as these rather than from a 
lone effort. The forward lines were very evenly balanced 
and it would be difficult to pick out any individual stars. 

Our defence improved a great deal during the season 
and, together with the goalie, produced some very sound 

The spirit of the team was first-class at all times. 


First team colours have been awarded to the following 
members of the squad: — F. L. R. Jackman (Capt), P. A. 
Kelk, M. C. dePencier. J. R. M. Gordon, P. A. Greey, B. 
Mowry, W. A. Seagram. P. G. Phippen (goal), A. J. La- 
fleur, M. S. Mather. 

Half -Colour— R. G. Church. 


With only four practices under their belts, the Team 
travelled to play S.A.C. in Aurora on January 24. Our 
lack of team play was very noticeable and S.A.C. scored a 


well-earned victory by 11-1. W. Seagram scored the lone 
T.C.S. goal. 

A greatly improved squad defeated Lakefield at T.C.S. 
on February 3 by a 5-4 score. This was a very hard fought 
game and both teams showed some good hockey. The 
School's forward lines played well together and the defence 
led by Jackman did an excellent job. Phippen played an 
outstanding game in goal. dePencier and Mather led the 
scoring for T.C.S. with two goals each. 

On February 12, U.C.C. Prep played at T.C.S. and this 
produced another very close game with the final score 4-3 
for the School. Both sides played good hockey with Jack- 
man and W. Seagram standing out for the School at de- 
fence. Jackman led the scoring with two goals. 

The team played the return game at Lakefield on 
February 21 losing by a score of 7-3. This was a very 
hard fought game with Lakefield showing considerable 
strength in their solo rushes and a little more speed than 
the School. 

The game against Ridley on March 2 at the Varsity 

Arena was the closest game of the year and the 5-5 tie 

which resulted represented accurately the relative merits 

of each team. Gordon was the leading scorer with two 

goals while Mowry put in the all-important first score. 

Phippen played an outstanding game until unfortunately 

forced to retire through injury at the middle of the second 


Team: — Jackman 'Capt.), dePencier, Gordon, Mowry, A. La- 
fleur, Greey, Matner, Kelk, W. Seagram, Phippen (goal). Subs:

House Games 

The House Hockey game was played on very bad ice 
which was slushy and covered with water in many parts. 
(As a result SLASHING was replaced by SPLASHING) . 
The game was slow but well fought. Rigby won with a 
score of 2-1, Jackman and Greey each getting a goal for 
Rigby House, and J. Seagram getting the only goal for 
Orchard House. 

Rigby House — Jackman (Capt), Lafleur A., Church R.,

a Canadian education, the sciences, hockey, football, to- 
gether with the way religion forms a natural part of the 
curriculum must, I suppose, be almost unique; certainly I 
enjoyed every minute of it and benefited enormously."

The Toronto Branch of the Old Boys' Association 
held a most successful Dinner Meeting at the Club Norman 
on Friday, February 11. One hundred and seven tj^-six Old 
Boys of Toronto and District attended. At the Head 
Table were Norman Seagram, Jr., the President: P. A. C. 
Ketchum. the Headmaster; George McCuUagh, Bishop 
Renison, Sydney B. Saunders. Hugh F. Labatt, Colonel 
J. W. Langmuir, Provost R. S. K. Seeley. The Rev. F. H. 
Cosgrave, L. L. McMurray and George Hees. 

Mr. Seagram was Chairman and in his inimitable way 
briefly outlined the activities of the Association during the 
year and emphasized the co-operation which Old Boys can 
give to the School. He then introduced the Guest Speaker 
Mr. George McCullagh whose inspiring address deeply 
moved the gathering. Mr. McCullagh paid a warm tribute 
to Peter G. Campbell who had been one of the most loyal 
and enthusiastic of Old Boys. He stressed the challenge 
of public life and service to the youths of today and the 
special opportunities of T.C.S. to foster young men who 
will be capable and willing to devote their lives to the 
service of their country in peace time as well as they have 
done in times of war. He called upon Old Boys to make 
every effort to foster such high endeavor. 

Bishop Renison thanked Mr. McCullagh for his address 
and stressed the need for enterprise and initiative in 
Canada today rather than the inclination to depend upon 


security from government and other sources. He paid a 
great tribute to Mr. McCullagh and to the Headmaster. 

The Headmaster referred to the ways in which the 
School was endeavouring to develop public-spirited young 
men in its Political Science and Debating Clubs particu- 
larly. He told of the great help the Old Boys' Association 
Bursary Fund had been to many worthy boys this year 
and then made the announcement that in honour of his 
close friend Peter G. Campbell, Mr. McCullagh was giving 
the School an artificial ice rink. As may be imagined this 
announcement was received with a spontaneous roar of 
enthusiasm by every Old Boy; it was many minutes 
before the cheering died down.

cluded: —

Madam President, Members and Guests: — 

I have the honour to present the fifth annual report 
of the Trinity College School Ladies' Guild for 1948-1949. 


E>uring the year two meetings of the Executive Com- 
mittee have been held, with practically full attendance. 

The paid-up membership numbers eighty-two, of 
which seven are new life members. We have sent to the 
Toronto Guild our annual fees of 25c. a member, which 
amounted to S20.50. This is used by them to defray the 
cost of certain incidentals, such as printing. A cheque for 
$150.00 was sent to Mr. Ketchum for the Montreal bursar>". 
This is the fifth time we have contributed to the School in 
this way, and we hope that sustained interest in the Guild 
will enable your Board to continue to do so. 

This year sees the retirement of Mrs. McGill and of 
Mrs. Livingstone as officers of the Guild. May we express 
our gratitude and appreciation for the work done by both. 
and particularly that of our President, who has most cap- 
ably and kindly guided us during the year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Hilda F. Pangman.

It is agreed by all that a unified world is the only hope 
for a lasting peace. This important fact was realized by 
the nations after the first Great War. Yet their failure to 
carry it out is all too painfully evident to countless millions 
of people. From this lesson, we of the generation after 
the second Great War have learnt another significant fact. 
Nations must be prepared to give up something of their 
national sovereignty to a higher authority. When the 
great crisis arose between the wars the need for action 
was realized and yet none was taken. The nations saw 
their duty, but there was no unifying force to carry them 
together toward the accomplishing of it. 


These are two great lessons which we have learned in 
the course of the past forty years. But there is a third 
which we have to learn. There must be some dominating 
motive, some common conception to which all countries 
should owe their allegiance. At the present time, fear 
seems to fulfil that necessity. But is it enough? Fear is 
a two-edged weapon. The nations are faced with the ques- 
tion of whether they wish to survive or not. Their natural 
fear of destruction, we argue, will force them together 
along a peaceful path. But while fear has often been a 
powerful deterrent from war, it has also been on many 
occasions one of its principal causes. And it is again 
threatening to be so. And even if we are driven to a peace- 
ful solution by our horror of the other alternative, what 
would happen if ever any nation should feel itself strong 
enough to be able to disregard the power of others, and 
should cease to feel that common repulsion at the thought 
of war? 

Something more is needed. The motive of fear is not 
a permanently unifying force. It compels each individual, 
still acting in his own interests, to throw in his lot tem- 
porarily with others. But it can never achieve lasting 
unity. One of the most powerful alliances in history we 
have seen break up before our eyes as soon as the danger 
of a common enemy was removed. Something positive, 
not negative, must bind nations together. A nation is 
unified within itself by common language, culture and 
histor3^ and. most important, by a common conception in 
the minds of the people of that nation as a unit of which 
they are proud to be members. This sense of unity alone 
can bind nations into a world union — a conception common 
to all of something outside of them, to which they all owe 
allegiance. Governments as yet legislate only with the 
good of their own people in mind. The day must come 
when they will act out of consideration for the human race 
as a whole. But a conception which unifies all of humanity 
can be no half-hearted idealism. Even patriotism grew up 


largely as a result of rivalry between different races. We 
need something stronger than a world patriotism. We 
need a belief in the minds and hearts of men that there is 
some power outside of themselves toward which they must 
travel in unison. 

Such a belief is a belief m God. For only through 
such a belief can a broad and powerful conception of 
human destiny enter into men's thinking. We must, above 
all things, have a clear vision before us of the ultimate end 
for which humanity is striving. This end is inextricably 
linked with the power of God. Only with this power as 
an inspiration and hope can mankmd find world unity and 
a lasting peace. 




The School family and many thousands of others were 
deeply grieved to learn of Colonel H. C. Osborne's death in 
Ottawa on April 20. In the latter part of March he had 
attended a meeting of the Governing Body in Toronto, and 
shortly before his death he had been staying with his 
brother. Colonel Ewart Osborne, D.S.O., but had returned 
to Ottawa to carry on preparations for the Dominion 
Drama Festival. His heart gave way suddenly while he 
was in the thick of this work. 

Colonel Osborne came to T.C.S. in 1888 and remained 
until 1892. He was a Prefect in his last year; his name 
often appears in the prize lists of all years; he was a mem- 
ber of the Choir, of the football team, of the Dramatic 
Society, of the Athletic Club. Going on to Trinity, he con- 
tinued his successes, taking his M.A. and later being called 
to the Bar. In the first war he served with distinction. He 
was created a C.M.G. in 1918 and a C.B.E. in 1935. For 
thirty years he was Canadian Secretary of the Imperial 
War Graves Commission. In 1932 he was asked by the 
Governor General, Lord Bessborough. to become honorary 
director of the Dominion Drama Festival and for seven- 
teen years he devoted his many exceptional gifts to the 
broadening and deepening of the drama movement in this 
country. The present wide interest and skill shown in the 
little theatre movement in this country is largely owing to 
Colonel Osborne's enthusiasm and extraordinary talents. 

For twelve years he was a Governor of the School and 
recently he had been made a life member of the Governing 
Body. He gave his time and attention most generously to 
School matters and on several occasions it was he who 
helped so much to arrange for distinguished people to visit 
us on Speech Day. None of us will ever forget his brilliant 
speeches, sparkling with wit and delightful phrasing; he 
used to say that he began speaking to T.C.S. audiences 
during the Boer War and had continued through two other 
wars, and he enjoyed making humorous references to the 
conditions of life at T.C.S. in the 80's. There have been 


few Canadians with a larger circle of friends and admirers 
and none will be more deeply missed than "Henry" 
Osborne. The family of Old Boys and thousands of Cana- 
dians will treasure his memory, the memory of a brilliant, 
sparkling, witty, kindly personality with a character and 
heart of gold. Our deep sympathy goes out to his family, 
especially his brother. 

The following editorial appeared in the Toronto Globe 
and Mail on April 21st : 

A Pati'on of the Arts 

Colonel H. C. Osborne's death takes from Canada a 
wise, witty and lovable personality whose memory will 
long be cherished by his numberless friends. Ke was known 
across the country for devoted service to the Dominion 
Drama Festival and he richly deserved the fame he won 
in this activity. He was one of the Festival founders and 
directed it in the early years. The extraordinary improve- 
ment of standards since that time, in acting, production 
and the quality of plays written for the Festival by Cana- 
dians, will be noticed by audiences in Toronto next week. 
That gain in artistry was, in part, due to Colonel Osborne's 
excellent taste and high enthusiasm, both of which he 
could transmit to others. 

While his public celebrity was gained by leadership in 
the field of drama, his friends knew him as a connoisseur 
of the other arts, especially music, as a sparkling host and 
as an after-dinner speaker with few equals for wit and 
felicity of phrase. His travels gave him a cosmopolitan 
outlook and manner, and they were frebuent, for his work 
as Canadian member of the Imperial War Graves Commis- 
sion took him regularly to Europe. He was on active 
service in the First World War. In helping to give the 
Canadian cemeteries overseas the beauty and comeliness 
they have, he foimd expression for his deeply affectionate 
nature. This most amiable and cultured gentleman will be 
greatly missed. 



Human Dignity 

One of the term's most interesting sermons was 
preached by the Rev. George G. D. Kilpatrick, D.S.O.. D.D., 
on the last Sunday of Lent term. Dr. Kilpatrick com- 
menced by citing the chemist's value of the human body. 
It came to eighty-seven cents. However. Dr. Kilpatrick 
went on to say. this is not a good definition of a human 
being. A man is much more than this. His value lies in 
his spiritual and moral nature which is far more significant 
than the eighty-seven cents value of the chemical contents 
of the body. 

A human is not a man if he is treated or acts like an 
animal. Such a condition removes his human value. 

Dr. Kilpatrick gave a comparison between a drunkard 
and a man who died to save another from drowning. He 
then asked which we considered the better man. It is 
qualities such as these of the latter which raise humanity 
above animals, and we must make a deliberate and con- 
sidered choice between these modes of life. 


Dr. Kilpatrick finished by giving a definition of a 
gentleman. A gentleman must have honour and chivalry. 
He said that Christ displayed both these qualities to per- 
fection, and we must model ourselves after Him. 

Dr. Kilpatrick is the Principal of the United Theolo- 
gical College in Montreal and a governor of St. Andrew's 
College. We hope that he will be able to speak again at 
T.C.S. in the future. 

A Vocation in Life 

On March 20, the Rev. D. R. Dewdney, Rector of New- 
castle, delivered a sermon based on a verse in the Gospel 
of St. Mark: "Art thou Christ, the son of the blessed?". 
Jesus said, "I am". 

The visiting preacher explained that the High Priest, 
who asked this question on the night of our Lord's be- 
trayal was pleased at our Lord's clear and unmistakable 
claim, for He could be charged with blasphemy. We should 
think of Christ, standing fearless, loving, and all-knowing, 
seeing through the priestly exterior, saying "I am: ye shall 
see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and 
coming in the clouds of Heaven". Mr. Dewdney went on 
to say that we are all important to God, for He gave His 
only begotten son to save us. We should ask ourselves, as 
the High Priest asked Jesus, what we think of Christ. God 
wants us to serve Him ; we may have a vocation in life, yet 
we must live our lives, regardless of our vocation, so as to 
be of service to God and our fellow man. 

In conclusion Mr. Dewdney stated that the questions 
"What do you think of me?", and "What do you want of 
me?" are very closely related: Christ may come before us 
in youth, maturity or old-age, and whatever His claim may 
be, we should do the Lord's will. 


The Resurrection 

The sermon on May 1 was given by Mr. Bagley. In 
it he discussed the arguments put forward by those who 
would refute the resurrection of Christ. Undoubtedly the 
story as set forth in the Gospels could have been believed 
without hesitation if there had not been a connection with 
religious ideals and beliefs. It was a conflict between the 
practical and the ideal. 

The individual arguments were quite simply dealt with. 
The denial of Christ's death does not seem well based 
when we consider that he probably could not have survived 
the days in the tomb especially after the wound of the 
lance. Besides, the soldiers did not consider it necessary 
to break Christ's legs, likely proof that he was dead. There 
was little likelihood that the disciples would attempt to 
steal Christ's body to deceive the Jews, especially as they 
were all timid men. The proof of the fact that Christ was 
the Messiah to the early Church was that he had risen 
from the dead. 

It was also not likely that the Resurrection was a 
fabrication of the Gospelers. The accounts vary greatly, 
as would probably not be the case if the story had been 
agreed upon before. 

The Chaplain ended his address by asking us to pray 
for the presence of the Divine spirit to encourage us to 
accept worthwhile ideals and to overcome reaction. 

Two Truths 

The sermon in Chapel the Sunday after Inspection 
Day was given by Canon Davison of Montreal, who is the 
rector of the Church of St. John the Evangelist there. 

The Canon chose as his text the very familiar words 
from the Psalms: "Let us come before His presence with 
thanksgiving". He went on to say that God had made a 
great sacrifice for us, through His boundless love, when 
He allowed His son to die on the Cross for us. Christ 


taught US two truths; first, that God is love, and secondly 
that we belong to God. 

This was Canon Davison's first visit to T.C.S., and we 
hope that he will return in the near future. 

The Confirmation Service 

The Confirmation Service was held on March 26, when 
thirty-one boys were presented to the Right Rev. R. J. 
Renison, M.A., D.D.. Lord Bishop of Moosonee. The large 
number of guests present were highly impressed with the 
appearance of the Chapel, with its new coat of paint and 
the lovely flowers. 

The candidates were presented by the Chaplain, the 
Rev. E. R. Bagley, who prepared both the Senior and Junior 
boys. Scripture passages were read by the Rev. C. H. 
Boulden. the Chaplain, and the Headmaster. 

In his address to the candidates Bishop Renison chose 
for his text from St. Paul's Epistle to the Hebrews: 
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed with so great a 
cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the 
sin that does so easily beset us, and let us run with 
patience the race that is set before us." The Bishop remind- 
ed the candidates that Confirmation was the most personal 
and intimate service of the Christian Church, and that the 
thought behind the idea of Confirmation was decaying in 
the Church to-day. Christ wanted men to follow Him who 
could endure all types of hardships, courageous men. The 
Bishop said that the true idea and spirit of Confirma- 
tion might be compared to that in the Olympic games. He 
described what incidents impressed him most at last year's 
games which he attended; England calling the games at 
London, though her people were strictly rationed and had 
no chance of winning; the competitors of sixty-one nations 
marching into the stands, each man ready to give his best 
for his country, the taking of the Oljrmpic oath of fair 
play, and the releasing of thousands of pigeons, the sym- 


bol of freedom, following the old custom in Greece. The 
true spirit of human youth and endeavour is represented 
by the Olympic games. 

Bishop Renison closed his address by pointing out to 
the candidates that the Christian race was ahead of them, 
and that the promise that they were going to make was 
like the oath of the Olympic athletes. 

The choir maintained its customary high standards. 
They sang the Introit "I Lift My Heart To Thee", the 
anthem "Prevent Us O Lord" and the "Vesper" which was 
beautifully sung. 

The next morning a Choral Communion service was 
held at which the choir sang the anthem "Jesu, Joy Of 
Man's Desiring". This was entirely successful and the 
accompaniment of Mr. Cohu, which came to the fore in this 
piece, left nothing to be desired. 

The following boys were presented: — 

J. C. W. Armstrong, C. R. Bateman, J. C. Bonny- 
castle, R. A. N. Bonnycastle, A. C. Brewer, C. H. Church, 
R. G. Church, E. L. Clarke, M. C. dePencier, J. A. Dolph.

Gifts to the School 

The members of the Ladies' Guild in Montreal have 
collected many books for the Junior School library, where 
they are much appreciated; they have also continued their 
Bursary again this year. 


An anonymous Old Boy has deposited fifty dollars to 
the credit of T.C.S. for the purchase of books for the

The Ladies' Guild of Toronto have continued to give 
bursaries to the School, to give books to the library and 
prizes for Art. This year they have also made generous 
donations for increasing the supply of classical records in 
the Senior and Junior Schools. 

Mr. A. M. Bethune has sent a valuable stamp album 
to the Junior School. 


Chuck Taylor, the only secondary school boy chosen 
to represent Canada at a World Youth Foruni in England, 
returned to School on May 16. He was asked to give the 
School his impression of the tour, which he did informally 
on the 21st of May. 


Chuck described the food conditions in England as 
being quite adequate, but they were very short of a few 
commodities, such as meat. All the poorer class of chil- 
dren were decently clothed and fed, and a few blocks of 
very clean and comfortable flats had been erected in the 
poor districts of London. However, there still was a 
housing shortage, and London still looked badly bruised 
from the bombing. Chuck found the English climate not 
very pleasant at certain times of the year, and the houses 
uncomfortable due to the lack of central heating and coal. 
The English morale is still building up marvellously, and 
they really feel that they are accomplishing something. 

The nationalization of health services and railways has 
worked out quite well, although it cost the Government 
quite a bit at first. However, as they have poured all pro- 
fit back into the concerns, it doesn't appear as if they are 
doing well on the surface. Hence a great deal of criticism 
levelled against the government is unjustified. 

From all this evidence Taylor reached the conclusion 
that the Labour government has done well, especially when 
you consider how new Socialism is in England, and how 
inexperienced some of the leaders were. 

In England co-educational schools are not very good, 
because they are comprised of boys and girls who couldn't 
get into better institutions. The organization of most 
schools isn't much different from ours, but in the curricu- 
lum there are marked contrasts. The English boys tend 
to take more interest in their work than in sports or social 
activities, and they specialize much more in their sixth 
form. The people as a whole take more interest in political 
and international affairs than we do in this country. 

While in Paris, Chuck noted that most Frenchmen 
were hopeful of a quick recovery, but that they wanted to 
do without Marshall aid as soon as possible. In England, 
as well as on the Continent, people are willing to give up 
some of their national sovereignty in order to secure World 
Peace. This is best exemplified by the recent Council of 


Europe. On the Continent most countries are not too 
anxious to act as a mere buffer against Communism, and 
some are afraid of the United States stamping their im- 
pression on them just as much as Russia. A third force is 
advocated by many people, as they feel that this may be 
the only way out. 

In closing Chuck told us that Britain is the one country 
in the world which is least likely to turn to Communism. 


The following article is a brief resume of the main 
events of my trip to Britain. The principal interest of the 
trip was, for me, in meeting and talking to people whose 
background and outlook was different to my own, and in 
being able to learn something new about ways of life 
which were before a closed book to me. And my principal 
enjoyment was in the large number of excellent friends 
that I made, particularly among the other foreign delegates 
of the forum. The account of what I did therefore, is not 
half so interesting to relate as to live through it. Never- 
theless, the excellent way in which the forum was or- 
ganized, and in which it was arranged that we should see 
so much and meet so many people is certainly worth the 
telling, and that is what I shall attempt to do here. 

For the first week and a half after our arrival, all the 
delegates stayed together at a youth hostel in London. 
During that time we were shown around a great many 
places of interest in London and almost all of us agreed 
that this was one of the highlights of our stay in 
Britain. What amazed us all was the strong bond of 
sympathy that grew up amongst us in so short a time. In 
the space of a few days we became such fast friends that 
we felt as though we had been together for years, instead 
of merely for a few brief hours. We passed almost every 
spare moment of the day discussing and arguing about the 
problems which interested us all, and we stayed awake 


well into the night, engrossed in a philosophical discussion 
until we were too weary to continue. As a result of the 
consequent serious lack of sleep, I among others, came 
down with a case of "flu", but I had no regrets. This was 
undoubtedly one of the most interesting and most enjoy- 
able periods of my life, and I wouldn't have wasted an 
unnecessary second of it in sleeping. 

After these ten daj's in London, we were split up and 
sent out separately to different schools around the country. 
We stayed in private homes, with boys or girls who were 
attending the school that we were to attend. I went to 
Edinburgh, to the Royal High School, and spent there ten 
very interesting days, attending classes, meeting boys 
from all forms, and holding one or two question hours 
about Canada. Then the school went on holiday, and I 
was given a chance to see something of Edinburgh and the 
great number of interesting places. I found Edinburgh a 
very beautiful city, and like most of the place I visited, I 
regretted not being able to spend more time there. My 
stay was made particularily enjoyable by the marvellous 
hospitality shown to me by my hosts, and by everyone with 
whom I came in contact. I can only say that the stories 
one hears of Scottish hospitality are certainly not myths. 
And the other delegates who were there subsequently 
seemed to share my opinion. 

Periodically, it was arranged for six foreign delegates 
to meet together for "brains trusts". The six of us would 
answer questions, put to us by a question-master, from the 
points of view of each of our own countries. Usually 
these meetings were held in front of an audience of stu- 
dents. One of these was held in Edinburgh toward the 
end of my stay there. As it happened, it coincided with 
one of the sixth-form conferences organized by the Coun- 
cil for Education in World Citizenship for the schools in 
the district. Not only did I enjoy greatly meeting some 
of the foreign delegates again, but also having a chance to 
meet so many British students, to hold discussions with 


them, and to hear their views. Normally in these con- 
ferences, a guest speaker would give us a talk on some 
problem, (such as, for example, world food shortages), 
with which he was familiar, after which we would split 
into a number of discussion groups to talk over the points 
he had made and to put forward some of our own ideas. 
This particular conference lasted for four days, was a great 
success, and an extremely valuable experience for all con- 

During my stay in Edinburgh, I took advantage 
of a week-end in which I had nothing special to do, and 
went on a trip to the Isle of Arran, a beautiful, moun- 
tainous island in the Firth of Clyde. During my three days 
there, the weather was very good, and I had a wonderful 
time hiking and climbing on the windy slopes, dark brown 
with early heather. 

After altogether a month in Scotland, I moved down 
to stay with a family in London. There I attended an- 
other brains trust and sixth form conference, which I 
thought was even better than its counterpart in Edinburgh. 
It was, however, shorter, lasting only two days, and I 
found I had still two weeks before the second school I was 
to attend was scheduled to open. I spent this time visit- 
ing places of interest in London, which I had not had time 
to see during my first stay there, and particularily enjoyed 
listening to a debate in the House of Commons, although 
it was extremely difficult to get in at that time, since it 
was the period of the Yangtse River trouble. At this time 
also, I gave a couple of talks to different gatherings about 
Canada, and together with a number of other delegates, 
made a few recordings for the BBC, some of which were 
made into broadcasts for the Canadian service. 

Latymer Upper School, which I attended during my 
second stay, opened late, and so, unfortunately, I only 
spent three days there. But I managed to fit everything 
I possibly could into these three days, and I attended 
several classes, held several question hours and addressed 
the school assembly. 


But my time there was cut short by the final gather- 
ing of all the delegates at the Devonshire Street Club, the 
youth hostel at which we stayed in London, in preparation 
for the final forum at the Royal Albert Hall. Unfortunately 
we spent a period of only a few days there, and much of 
our time was spent with preparations for the forum, which. 
before an audience of upwards of 6,000 students, consisted 
of two brains trusts, a number of other speeches, and talks 
by three very distinguished guest speakers, the Duke of 
Edinburgh, Mr. Attlee and Mr. Eden. We would all have 
liked to remained a longer time together. During our stay 
we became fast friends, and we were all genuinely sorry to 
have to fly back to the exams and the great arrears of 
school work awaiting us, when the forum was at a close. 

Our only regret was that it had been so short — a mere 
nine weeks. For me, as for all of us. it was at the same 
time the most enjoyable, the most interesting, and the most 
educational period of my life. And I will always be grate- 
ful to the Daily Mail and the Council of Education in World 
Citizenship for opening to me this unique and valuable 
opportunity. And I shall always remember the Greigs, 
the Spearings and the Cooks, three very kind families with 
whom I stayed and who did so much to make me think of 
Britain, as every Canadian should, as my second home-

(The following article by Charles Taylor contains his 
impressions of the Youth Forum which he attended in 

One of the things that amazed me most about the 
Youth Forum was the spirit of comradeship that grew up 
in such a short time among the delegates. In the space 
of a few days, before we even had time to realize it, such a 
strong bond of sympathy grew up among us that we felt 


as though we had known each other for years. I had 
thought beforehand that there would be too many dif- 
ferences in background and ideas for us ever to become 
fast friends. But, when we met, we found that we be- 
came more conscious of the things we had in common; of 
our interest in politics, our desire for a unified world, and 
our acceptance of common principles of right, and we re- 
fused to allow our differences — much as we enjoyed argu- 
ing about them — to spoil the pleasure that we found in 
each other's company. It was an object lesson in one of 
the fundamental principles of democracy — the agreement 
to differ. We were in disagreement as to a great many of 
our ideas, yet we were drawn together by the common end, 
at which we were all aiming. 

It would be almost impossible to tell of everything 
that we learnt or gained from the trip, but there are a few 
advantages — changes in one's way of looking at a situation, 
realization of some important facts — which are cleai and 
definite. The one I have just mentioned I consider one of 
the most important of these. We have all thought of our- 
selves as being T.C.S. boys, of being citizens of some town 
or city, and of being Canadians, and we have all felt we 
owed something to these institutions and peoples either in 
cheering our team on in a football game or in buying war- 
saving certificates. But rarely if ever do we ever think 
of ourselves as members of the human race. When we 
proceed outside the boimdaries of our own country, we are 
much too conscious of the differences in outlook that con- 
front us and we fail to realize what we all have in com- 
mon. We think of our own countrymen, perhaps, as human 
beings, but foreign nations are merely forces for good or 
evil acting in the balance-scale of international relations. 
Another country is but a tariff wall, a buffer against 
aggression, an important strategic post. 

But the experience we had made us very powerfully 
conscious of the fact that as human beings we had much 
to bind us together. For perhaps the first time, we were 


able to think of each other's nations as being not merely 
masses of people who spoke a different tongue, but as 
groups of individual humans like ourselves who had banded 
together, as we had, to accomplish an end which was very 
like our own. 

When I think now of Holland, I no longer think of a 
poster portraying a windmill in front of which stands a 
ruddy-cheeked girl in wooden shoes and a bonnet, but I 
think of a boy and girl my own age. who were, and still 
are, very good friends of mine. When we speak of inter- 
national understanding, this is what we mean. For I am 
convinced that this is the only sure way to that seemingly 
far-off end. A real sense of internationalism can grow 
only from direct intercourse of people from different 
nations on a personal basis. 

It is clear that the mass of the people of any nation 
cannot travel abroad to meet others. But those who have 
had this experience • can communicate what they have 
learnt to others and attempt to spread abroad as far as 
possible the germ of comradeship they have felt. With 
this idea in our minds we left for our homes. And our 
sorrow at parting was matched by our hope that ever more 
and more people all over the world could come to feel as 
strongly as we had that sense of oneness with human 
beings everywhere. 


Inspection Day was again this year a great success. 
At seven in the morning the weather showed little promise 
with cloudy skies and rain forecast, but by the fall in at 
10.30 the sun was shining and the sky was clear. Cars 
began to arrive at ten and the campus was soon crowded 
with photographers and friends of the School. The corps 
was inspected this year by General H. D. G. Crerar, C.H., 
C.B., D.S.O., Air-Vice Marshal E. E. Middleton, C.B., 
Brigadier Ian Cumberland ('16-'23) D.S.O.. O.B.E.. Com-

mander V. W. Rowland ('31-'35) R.C.N., representing the 
Chief of the Naval Staff, Air-Vice Marshal Frank McGill, 
C.B.E.. and the late Squadron Leader Keillor, D.S.O., 
D.F.C. The inspection was followed by the March Past in 
Column, Advance in Review Order, and the drill competi- 
tion between the Houses, all of which were extremely well 
carried out. Special credit should go to Thompson as 
Commanding Officer for his handling of the Corps. During 
the House Drill the crowd was entertained by two jets and 
a twin engined Mitchell, ordered by Air-Vice Marshal Mid- 
dleton, which swept over the campus several times. After 
the House Drill Air-Vice Marshal Middleton presented the 
Ontario Junior Gym. Championship Cup to Thompson, who 
was captain of the School Gym. team. The School was 
especially pleased when A. V. M. Middleton announced the 
well deserved promotion of Flight Lieutenant Batt to Squa- 
dron Leader. Three rousing cheers followed. The drill com- 
petition was very close again this year with Brent winning 
the cup for the second year in a row by one less error. 

The Physical Training and Gymnastic Display in the 
packed gym after luncheon was equally as good. The 
Junior School, trained by Mr. Armstrong, contributed to 
the display with several well coached teams. All their 
movements were quick and accurate, and the Brain Stimu- 
lating Games by the younger boys were enjoyed by all the 
parents. The most outstanding group for the Senior School 
was the Horizontal Bar Team. Thompson, Welsford, 
Symons, Levey, and Peters put on a great show of work 
and were well applauded. Several of Welsford's twists in 
mid air left the audience holding its breath. The Vaulting 
Horse Team was next best and Thompson's graceful swan 
dives over the horse were outstanding. After the display, 
General Crerar spoke to the School. He congratulated 
them on the cadet and gym. work, which he thought was 
"first class all the way". 




Your Headmaster has said some very complimentary'' 
things about me, for which I thank him. I refuse to let 
myself believe that I deserve them but I am human enough 
to appreciate their utterance all the same. He has also 
placed the responsibility on me of addressing you. In ful- 
filling this obligation, I have decided to speak, briefly, on 
character, and its vital importance in peace, as well as in 

Now, the records of individual attainment, in the 
earlier years of a man's life, provide no positive indication 
of the future position which he will gain for himself. Some 
people do not develop their real and definite characters 
until their earlier adult years are well in the background. 
And it is the character of a man which counts so much 
more than his intellectual brilliance or physical strength. 
By character, I mean outlook and judgment, the quality of 
his ambitions and the persistence of his determination. The 
older I have grown, and the heavier the responsibilities 
which have been placed upon me, the more I have sought 
for what I might term "balanced" men to help me — because 
I know that with that type, it is the long view, not the 
short one, which will prevail, the attainment of the worth- 
while object, not the personal position, which, to them, will 
be important. And, whether running a business, or com- 
manding an Army, the head of either needs around him, 
intelligent men of balanced, unswerving character. Not 
otherwise will that organization carry on, and through, to 
a worthy destiny, undeterred by disappointments and un- 
disturbed by momentary successes. 

I know a lot about the magnificent contribution to 
Allied Victory made by the oflficers and men of the First 
Canadian Army, which Army, I had the great honour to 


command. I also have an informed appreciation of the 
tremendous part which Canada as a country, played as a 
member of the Allied team. In the result, this country 
has gained an international status and reputation which I 
truly believe to be second to no other nation in the world, 
today. This has been accomplished by the individual and 
joint efforts of Canadians while their country was at war. 
What matters, now, is whether we can continue to show 
the same drive, in the same inspiring direction. It must 
be as obvious to you, as it is to me, that a share of this 
important future responsibility will have to be taken by 
every one assembled here today. 

As an older man, with views which have been reached 
after considerable experience, and in testing situations, it 
may be that my conclusions as to the "responsibility of the 
individual" may be worth repeating. In any event, I shall 
give you, for what they are worth, a few working prin- 
ciples which have aided me in thinking out my own inten- 
tions and actions, in past years. I believe that the first 
thing which each of us requires to appreciate is that the 
game is more important than any of the players. The 
greatest mistake in the world is to consider the subject 
(yourself or myself) first, and the object, or the achieve- 
ment, second. The selfish player, keen to attract atten- 
tion to himself even at the expense of others, is a menace 
to his side. On the other hand, if, unselfishly, each one 
of us puts everything he has got into a joint effort to 
secure a really worthwhile object, whether that object is 
better social relations, better living conditions, better 
government or better business, the chances are that the 
object will be gained and, in that achievement, the contri- 
bution of each individual will, usually, be fully recognized. 
In other words, I consider that the sajdng "Virtue is its 
own reward" is, quite definitely, an under-statement. In 
the general conduct of affairs, virtue pays extensive and 
practical dividends. 


Another principle, and one I regard as quite essential 
to the effective working of a family, a group, a community 
or a nation, in which freedom of thought and action are 
encouraged, is the old standby "Do as you would be done 
by". If before action, the individual puts himself in the 
place of those who will be affected by his action, and re- 
gards the prospective results as fully as he can from their 
point of view, he will usually come to a sound conclusion 
as to the rightness, or wrongness, of his intention. Indeed, 
this is a fundamental principle of Christianity. It is the 
essential foundation of "peace on earth and good-will to- 
wards men". To prove my point, I need only say that in 
war it is the opposite attitude which obtains — to do to the 
enemy just the reverse of what you would have happen to 

One further thought I would like to leave with you. 
True happiness in life is obtained by engaging in some 
worthwhile activity in which the individual is definitely 
interested. It does not matter, in my opinion, what that 
activity is, or whether it's a "white collar" or a "shirt 
sleeve" job — providing, only, that it is useful, and not 
harmful, to others, as well as being interesting to one's 
self. Also, it is quite unimportant whether it brings a 
large financial return, or a modest one. The main satisfac- 
tions we get out of life are the mental and spiritual — not 
the financial. I am sure, also, that it is not the length of 
a man's life which is important but, instead, what he 
accomplishes in the time at his disposal. It is that con- 
viction which enables me to think quietly, as well as with 
pride, of the 22,000 and more, officers and men of the First 
Canadian Army who now lie buried overseas. They died 
for the sake of humanity and a future, better civilization. 
There could be no greater contribution in any life-time. 

All present here will need to take their share of respon- 
sibility for the shaping of things to come. In peace, as in 
war. in the future as in the past I know that the boys of 
this School will truly serve their country whatever the 
personal sacrifices to themselves."

The General then complimented the School on its 
showing on parade and in the Gym. "It was absolutely 
first rate," he said. 




"Where's that thumb-tack?" 

"What have you done with the crepe paper?" 

"Huycke, if you overblow another one of those bal- 
loons ....!" 

Over three-quarters of the industrious Seniors and 
Prefects returned the day before the School Dance to hang 
up decorations such as have seldom been seen before. As 
anyone wOl tell you, the thumb of Des Bogue was worth 
gold to the School on that day as he did more work than 
all the rest, sticking paper in ingenious places. 

After the School was almost decorated, people went 
down to the train and many adolescent hearts pounded 
fiercely as the first section of the Toronto train was found 
to contain none of the scheduled opposite sex. However, 
pulses returned to only eighty beats above normal as the 
femmes tripped lightly off the second section, and Port 
Hope was assured of being honoured by some of the most 
beautiful damsels from every part of the world, even Ber- 
muda and Peru. 

After a quick snack, the battle of the stud and tie 
began in the Senior School while down in the J.S. the battle 
of the dresses began, and at 8.45 some of the more 
ambitious characters set out to pick up their girls. On 
returning we passed through a distinguished receiving line 
made up of Mr. and Mrs. Morris and Mr. and Mrs. Huycke 
who were kind enough to attend, to say nothing of the 
glory of Havergal represented by two g^rls comparable 
only to their escorts. (Consider!) 

The House Officers' Common Room was decorated 
with cricket nets edged in tri-coloured fluorescent lighting 


and the Senior' Common Room with a truly glowing light- 
ing effect of a mellow red. The first half of the Dance 
was followed by a sumptuous repast served by Mrs. Wil- 
kin's staff which, added to the evening meal, promoted a 
hearty sing-song led by the orchestra. 

Throughout the evening the Toll brothers were snap- 
ping pictures for enamored couples the result of which we 
cannot wait to see. 

At the end of the Dance people en masse seemed to 
disappear and after being asked to leave the Seniors' 
Common Room the same people found themselves soon 
after leaving the House Officers' Common Room and re- 
turning the girls to the J.S. where they without a doubt 
stayed the night quietly and peacefully, caused no trouble, 
didn't try to climb out the fire escape, or write their names 
with lipstick on the sheets, or . . . ; well it is unnecessary 
to mention these things. Such thoughts never entered 
their minds. 

The following Saturday morning (about half an hour 
after we had gone to sleep) the females had aroused the 
houses in various ways and people went in various garb, 
to the Junior School for breakfast. It would be impossible 
to tell of the many activities, mostly extra-curricular, that 
people thought up for the rest of this day. The majority 
went to the ski-camp and were hit and hit hard by a rain 
and hail storm which crowded them together into the ski 
camp where hardly a sofa or chair could make room for 
another. On returning to the School, squash, tennis or 
badminton or even all three were attempted by the more 
athletic and active. 

On Saturday night an informal was held in the J.S. 
and many had come to an almost dead stop as could be 
seen by the slow romantic Arthur Murray ( ?) dancing 
styles. Many thanks must be offered to the people who 
were kind enough to lend their record collections for this 
evening. As the music finally faded away after the third, 
maybe the fourth encore had been finished, Mr. Tottenham 


with a certain amount of eager assistance tucked the girls 
to bed. 

Sunday was spent in quiet meditation of one kind or 
another until with a tear in the eye partners bid each other 
adieu, some for just a week, some for just a month, but 
some for always.

The Arctic 

On the evening of Wednesday. May 18. most of the 
Junior School and some of the Senior School packed into 
the Physics laboratory to hear a talk on botany related 
to the sub-arctic given by W. K. W. Baldwin, an Old Boy 
of T.C.S. Mr. Baldwin served overseas and became dis- 
tinguished as an outstanding machine gunner, for which 
he received the M.B.E. He is now on the staff of the 
National Museum at Ottawa. Mr. Baldwin began by telling 
briefly about the National Museum explaining that it put 
more emphasis on research than on exhibition. He then 
related some of his experiences and observations of a trip 
which he took with several fellow scientists in 1947. The 
object of this expedition was to study plant growth on the 
east coast of Hudson's Bay and James Bay. Mr. Baldwin 
illustrated his story with numerous slides which were en- 
joyed immensely. After his story he answered many and 
varied questions. When all was over many stayed behind 
to look at some very good exhibitions of pressed flowers 
and stuffings. 

We are very grateful indeed to Mr. Baldwin for giving 
up his time in order to come to T.C.S. to give us such an 
interesting talk. We hope that he may return sometime 
in the near future. 

Hockey Dinner 

Ted Kennedy, Captain of the Maple Leafs, was the 
guest speaker at the special dinner for the championship 


hockey and gym. teams on May 19. He spoke for a few 
minutes on his impressions of hockey and its prospects as 
a career; and at the end of the dinner he autographed the 
menus for the hockey team. The Headmaster, Mr. Humble, 
Fullerton and Mr. Norman Seagram all paid tribute to this 
year's championship team, which was undefeated and un- 
tied. The Ontario gym. champions were also praised highly 
for their work, especially Welsford who won the cham- 

At the end of the dinner Mr. Kennedy presented the 
Captain's Cup in hockey to Fullerton and special wall mats 
to the team. Many thanks to Messrs. Kennedy, Stratton, 
and Seagram for giving up valuable time to come to the 

The New Rink 

At the Hockey Dinner on May 19, Mr. Stratton, Chair- 
man of the Building Committee of the new Peter Campbell 
Memorial Rink, made a few remarks on the progress to 

Major Conn Smythe, General Manager of the Maple 
Leaf Gardens, has consented to join the committee and at 
his suggestion the new rink will be lengthened to two 
hundred feet. This will make it one of the few standard 
sized rinks in the province. 

The location of the rink will probably be the Town 
Park, just at the top of the hill, west of the hospital. There 
will be four heated dressing rooms and a snack bar and all 
indications point to its completion in time for next season. 

The Headmaster's Trip to England 

Just before the Easter holidays the Headmaster left 
for a month in England. Mrs. Ketchum had gone pre- 
viously by boat. While there. Mr. Ketchum spent some 
time at Oundle School, and saw a number of Old Boys. On 


his return early this term he told us of his impressions. 
He felt that our School compared favourably in many 
respects with schools in other countries. 

Hockey Team Entertained 

One night shortly before Mr. and Mrs. Ketchum left 
for England the successful first hockey team was invited 
to the Lodge for supper. The meal was well in keeping 
with the best traditions of the Lodge and the hockey team 
is very grateful. 


The chess tournament has reached the second round 
but prospects seem dim for its completion. It is unfor- 
tunate that more interest is not taken in this game at the 
School. Mr. Knight has made noble efforts to create en- 
thusiasm and a large number of boys entered the tourna- 
ment, but time for matches is difficult to find. Perhaps 
if the tournament were started early in the first term it 
would have more chance of a successful completion. 

Half Holidjay 

On the occasion of Newfoundland's entry into the 
Dominion, the School was given a special half holiday. At 
lunch Mr. Snelgrove, a native of Newfoundland, told us 
about our new province, and the Glee Club sang Newfound- 
land's national anthem. We salute Canada's tenth pro- 

Current Events Talks 

The Political Science Club have continued their very 
interesting current events talks every Sunday in the Hall, 
Many boys who never look at anything but the sports page 


and the comics in the newspaper, find them very interest- 
ing. Doheny, Palmer, Ross, Herridge, and Bovey have all 
spoken on subjects, as widely varied as the Altantic Pact, 
Newfoundland, and China. 

Mr. McCullagh's Address 

The School assembled after lunch on the Lodge lawn 
one day to hear the broadcast of an address by Mr, George 
McCullagh. Mr. McCullagh, publisher of two Toronto news- 
papers, has been in England and Europe for several weeks 
and his address entitled "Testing Time" dealt with this 
trip. We all found this talk very interesting although the 
School's official European observer did not appear thor- 
oughly convinced on all points in the speech. 

New Privileges 

The School congratulates the following boys on their 
well earned promotions. To Prefect: Dignam. To House 
Prefects: Austin, Bogue i, dePencier, Deverall, Fullerton. 
To Seniors: Chitty, Mackenzie, Scowen, Rogers i, Hughes i, 
Greenwood, Lawson. To House Officers: Black, Bovey, 
Brinckman, Cox, Miller i, Ross i, McDonald, Herridge. 
Selby, Macklem, Aitken. Manning, Carroll. 

Mr. Hugh Labatt has sent us the following advertise- 
ment which appeared in 1832 in a London, Ontario, paper: 



Established 1832 

The Principal of this Institution, in tendering his 
grateful acknowledgements for the very flattering support 
he has received for so many years in which he has had the 
honor of training numbers of fine youths, most of whom 
are now filling situations of trust and respectability in 


many parts of the Province, would intimate that it is his 
intention, with the view of increasing the efficiency and 
at the same time facilitating the enforcement of the RULES 
OF THE SCHOOL, very materially to reduce the number 
of his pupils. Instead, therefore of ranging from fifty to 
sixty, as of late has generally been the case, not more than 
from 30 to 40 pupils will be desired; but as the reduction 
cannot be made instanter, no fresh applications will be en- 
tertained until the present number attending be reduced 
within that limit; and he, therefore, respectfully requests 
parents and guardians intending to withdraw their chil- 
dren, to intimate the same by letter, that he may regulate 
himself accordingly.

The main social event which is still relatively fresh in 
the minds of most of the participants (?) is the School 
Dance. The Dance was a great success this year and the 
boys who handled the Decoration Department, DES 
THOMPSON, GRAEME HUYCKE, et al, are really to be 
congratulated. The Common Rooms were decked out in 
grand style; several people, including MIKE DIGNAM and 
JOHN STIRLING were so overcome by the sheer beauty 
that they found it hard to tear themselves away from it 
all to dance. An interesting innovation was the Bunny 
SOS-piciously good bar-men. ALEX HUGHES was look- 
ing his usual remarkable self in a white dinner jacket . . . 
DON DEVERALL was enthralling everyone with his 
Charleston ... he performed it about once every fifteen 
minutes during the evening .... the Virginia Reel was 
ably executed, led by none other than, JOHN DEAD- 
MAN . . . some boys were reeling quite nicely . . . the Sing- 
Song M.C'd by NIGE was an outstanding feature .... the 
orchestra was looking rather lost and out of it as every- 
one sang The Bowery .... then there was the Ski-Camp 
Crisis when about ten carloads were bogged down after a 
sudden hail storm . . . almost enough to make your hair 
uncurl, as someone has said . . . altogether a memorable 

Sunbathing on the Bethune House terrace is now back 
in vogue . . . dark glasses on, pipes in mouth, portables in 
one hand, TEXTbooks in the other, and blankets over the 
shoulder, the School notables can be seen moving out to 


study as soon as classes are finished . . . the new Chapel 
and Rink have not appeared as yet, although excitement 
arose when two small men arrived with surveying instru- 
ments . . . upon being closely cross-questioned they blush- 
ingly admitted that they were from the Highways Depart- 
ment and were looking for a lost highway . . . another 
Spring Term feature has appeared again . . . Sunday even- 
ing baseball games . . . with JOHN WOOD on the mound 
at bat . . . the game is always amusing, at any rate. 

The older boys of the School were glad to see a num- 
ber of the younger Old Boys (if you follow me) at the 
Inspection . . . JOHN BERMINGHAM. MUCK MacLEAN, 
were noticed among the crowd . . . CHUCK TAYLOR has 
returned from his prize-winning trip to England and 
assures us that he had a wonderful time overseas .... he 
is strongly silent on certain details and occasionally a far- 
away, pensive look comes into his eyes .... could this be 
the real thing? .... the main feature of Sports Day was 
DICK ROBARTS performance with a yo-yo .... hearing 
the huge crowd roaring encouragement on the Middleside 
football field, your correspondent thought the Knife-Throw- 
ing finals were on ... . but it was only DICK showing the 
boys how to rock-the-cradle in championship form . . . an- 
other outstanding event this term was the performance of 
"Charley's Aunt" at Bessborough Hall . . . thanks go to 
DES and BRIAN BOGUE for a wonderful party after the 
play . . . members of the Sixth Form have received their 
graduation pictures . . . Mr. Toll is an excellent photo- 
grapher but doubts have been expressed as to the quality 
of the basic materials he had to work with ... we think it 
only right and fitting that BUTCH and JO-JO be com- 
memorated in print . . . BUTCH and JO are two small 
Collie (?) dogs who have contributed a great deal to 
School life this year . . . their friendly faces and happy 
dispositions will be sorely missed by the graduating class 

BUTCH, as you know is playing Mid-off on the First 

XI this season. 





On the occasion of the last debate of this term, our 
Debating Society defeated a Trinity College team who up- 
held the motion that "The voting age should be lowered 
to eighteen years". Speaking for the Government were 
Barton, Lawson (two T.C.S. Old Boys), and Hooper, while 
the School was ably upheld by Ross i, McDonald, and 
Herridge. Paterson i held the chair as Speaker, while Mr. 
Bishop gave constructive criticism as chairman of the 
judges, assisted by Scowen and Dignam. 

The debate was a successful one, and was well re- 
ceived, though lack of preparation in some of the speeches 
was evident. 

The Government's main argument was that Canada 
needs the virility and optimism of youth who are not 
restrained by the bonds of the disillusioned older voters. 
Barton, opening for Trinity College, pointed out that the 
average Canadian of eighteen is just ready to branch out 
into the world; he is capable of fighting for his country; 
as he pays taxes, why then should he not vote since we 
believe in taxation with representation. Lawson, who was 
judged the most effective speaker for his side, then fol- 
lowed with a humorous, dynamic speech which was greatly 
appreciated by the House. He refuted many of his op- 
ponents' points very skilfully, claiming that if a boy of 
eighteen is given responsibility he will become responsible, 
and that the eighteen year-old is an idealist who has not 


had time to be in a rut and follow the "party hne". Hooper 
closed for the Government mentioning the franchise as it 
applied to women, and the need for better political educa- 
tion, which might be brought about by the lowering of the 
voting age. 

The Opposition's strength lay in the fact that it 
weakened the Government's case with skilful rebuttal. 
Ross i, opening for T.C.S.. claimed that Democracy needs 
a more intelligent voting section, and that the average 
youth is insufficiently prepared for the responsibilities of 
the franchise, for he is liable to fall under the spell of any 
political trickster. McDonald continued with facts and 
figures to show that the voting ages in efficient democratic 
countries such as Norway and Sweden was even higher 
than in this country. He pointed out the need to educate 
the present electorate, rather than bring in more unedu- 
cated voters. Herridge, the final and best speaker for the 
Opposition, in a clear and well-constructed speech refuted 
most of the Government's points, destroying their case. He 
stated that youth can have an interest in politics without 
having the right to vote, and that Canada needed mature 
men to guide her. 

While the judges retired to make their decision several 
boys made speeches from the floor, which were relevant 
and contributed to the debate. When the Speaker, Pater- 
son i, called for a division of the House, the motion was 
carried by a majority of some thirty votes. 

When the judges returned. Mr. Bishop announced that 
the decision was awarded to the Opposition as they seemed 
to have more material, and to have made more preparation 
than the Government. 

We wish to thank the Trinity College team, for coming 
down just before exams, and to congratulate both sides 
on a good showing. 



Junior Debating 

In the final Junior Debate of the Lent term, the reso- 
lution was, "Resolved that our modern attitude towards 
criminals is too lenient". 

Martin ii, Hylton, and Bruce spoke for the Govern- 
ment. They concentrated on our general apathy toward 
crime and its serious possible results. 

The Opposition of Brierley, Pasmore, and Phillips 
based their argument on the belief that prisons should be 
institutions of correction rather than punishment. 

The Government was awarded the decision by judges 
Paterson i, Byers, and Graham. Martin, Brierley, and 
Bruce were named the best speakers. 



Charley's Aunt, the long awaited presentation of our 
Dramatic Society came off with a "bang" on the night of 
April 7. The gym. was packed as Mr. Morris rose to get 
the play underway promptly at the appointed hour. 

The Headmaster later described the play as "the best in 
the School's history". Even Mr. Dale, the director, seemed 
satisfied. Certainly the School enjoyed it and our Drama- 
tic Society has not always found it easy to satisfy her dis- 
criminating public. 

"Energy" seemed to be the feature of Charley's Aunt. 
What our young actors lacked in theatrical finesse was 
more than made up for in their "drive and spirit", to quote 
a well known football coach. 


The play, briefly, concerns the woes of two college 
boys who become involved with a rich aunt, two young 
ladies, their guardian and an eccentric friend named Lord 
Fancourt Babberly. It all comes out happily, of course. 

Star of the play was Alex Paterson as Lord F.B. him- 
self. Never before has anyone put as much enthusiasm 
into a part as Alex did into his. More than anyone else on 
the stage he seemed to be really enjoying himself. He 
had as much fun playing the part as the audience did 
watching him. Paterson brought the house down when 

he came in dressed as Charley's aunt "from Brazil 

where the nuts come from". He put on the best perform- 
ance the School has witnessed in several years. 

Alex Hughes and Dick VandenBergh took the part of 
the two college boys. Alex, apart from his usual excellent 
acting, was noteworthy because of his dashing appearance 
in that tux. He once again proved his ability as an actor 
in a very difficult part. 

VandenBergh, who took the role originally planned for 
Chuck Taylor, was very convincing as a dashing collegian 
and got an indecent number of laughs, ending the play 
engaged to a sweet young thing named Kitty. 

The part of Sir Francis Chesney was played by Dave 
Doheny, President of the Dramatic Society. Doheny has 
had a leading role in the play every j'ear he has been here. 
In this part he did not lower the standards he has set for 
himself. Playing the very difficult role of a blustering 
nobleman his accent was excellent and his humorous lines 
were played with perfect timing and finesse. Doheny is 
one of the outstanding actors in the School's history. 

The play did not lack slapstick for Bob Timmins put 
in an appearance early in the play as Mr. Spettigue. the 
father and ward of the two girls. Timmins has a natural 
flair for this type of acting. He did much the same role 
in the Bigside show at Christmas and both times he 
brought the house down. Timmins chasing Paterson 
around the stage is a scene no one will soon forget. 

Ian Bovey gave his usual strong performance as 
Donna Lucia. Owing to a fortunate combination of voice, 


face and size, Bovey, a very fine actor, has been chosen for 
one female role after another. It was only natural there- 
fore that after three years of it he should act more na- 
turally in his role than any of the others with female parts. 
Apart from the whistles, Bovey drew a lot of genuine ap- 
plause from a discrimmating audience. 

One of the few first year members to the Society, 
Slater, played the part of Brasset, the butler. With his 
natural English accent and somewhat "butlerish" appear- 
ance he was a "natural" for the part. We expect great 
things from him next year when he should be a leading 
light in the Society. 

The three young ladies were played by Macklem, Pitt, 
and Levey. Macklem was especially good as Ela Delahaye, 
the girl who lost her lover. 

Pitt was entirely satisfactory and made a very appeal- 
ing Kitty and Levey, although possibly not as sure of 
himself as the others, gave a good account of himself. Next 
year he should have a leading role. 

Mr. Dale and dePencier directed the play and did a 
very good job. There seemed to be a certain amount of 
finesse and smoothness which some previous plays have 

All in all Charley's Aunt v/as well worth the effort put 
into it by these people for they have in one year raised the 
standard of our annual production immeasurably. 

The Play Goes to Toronto 

For the first time in the history of the Dramatic 
Society, their annual production was put on outside the 
School. This took place on April 30 when Charley's Aunt 
was presented at Bessborough Hall in Forest Hill. It was 
quite a feat to transport all the sets and fit them to the 
large stage. All involved deserve much credit. The 
hall was packed and the presentation was a complete suc- 
cess as it was when it was put on at the School. We con- 
gratulate the Society on setting this excellent precedent. 





Bishop Renison is an Old Boy of whom the School can 
well be proud. Not only is he prominent as one of the 
foremost missionary Bishops in the service of the Church 
of England, but he is also well known in Britain and in the 
United States. 

Bishop Renison came to the School from a mis- 
sionary's house on the shore of Lake Nipigon in 1886. The 
C.P.R. had been completed only a year previously, and it 
took four days for what is now a few hours' journey by 
aeroplane. In those days the School was very different 
from what it is now. There was no plumbing whatsoever, 
and we can well imagine the discomfort of a wintry night. 
At that time the education of most people was based on 
the Classics. The study of Latin began at the age of nine, 
and Greek at eleven. Some people were allowed to con- 
centrate on other subjects at the age of sixteen, but they 
were always looked upon as mental inferiors. 

The only athletic triumph to which Bishop Renison 
confessed was the winning of the snow-shoe race. Coming 
from the wilds of Northern Ontario, he was considered 
"little better than an Eskimo", and defeated many older 
boys to win this race. Hockey was then unknown, and the 
main winter sports were bob-sledding and snow-shoeing. 

However, the principal sport of all at T.C.S. was 
cricket. It was the most popular sport, and was far more 


important than football. On the whole, the School pro- 
duced very good teams. As Ridley was not in existence, 
there was no Little Big Four, but there were games with 
U.C.C., and the team usually succeeded in defeating every- 
one except the Toronto Cricket Club. 

In his final year. Bishop Renison was Head Boy and 
Chancellor's Prize Man. He continued his success at the 
University of Toronto, where he entered University Col- 
lege, and he graduated with first-class honours in English 
Literature. He obtained his M.A. in 1897, and in the same 
year graduated in Theology with prizes and first-class 
honours from Wycliffe College. 

He was ordained Deacon in 1897 and Priest in 1899. 
He was appointed Curate of the Church of the Messiah, 
Toronto, in 1897, Missionary at Moose Fort, 1899, at 
Albany 1901, Archdeacon of Moosonee 1907, Rector of the 
Church of the Ascension, Hamilton, 1912, Rector of Christ 
Church Cathedral, Vancouver, 1927, Dean of New West- 
minster 1929. In 1931 he was elected Bishop of Athabasca 
and in 1932 he was appointed Rector of St. Paul's Church, 
Toronto, where he rendered memorable service until he 
resigned in 1944 to become Bishop of Moosonee. 

Bishop Renison was Chaplain of the 86th Battalion 
C.E.F. in 1915, Honorary Captain and Chaplain of 21st 
Battalion C.E.F., and later attached to the 4th Infantry 
Brigade, 2nd Canadian Division, B.E.F. in France. His 
troops and fellow officers will never forget his bravery and 
constant help in times of great stress and strain. 

In the five years in which he has been at Moosonee, 
Bishop Renison has achieved wonders. A capital expendi- 
ture of over $200,000 has been made for church building, 
which is an extraordinary accomplishment for a diocese 
whose Anglican population is only 20,000. The number of 
clergy has increased from sixteen to twenty-seven, and in 
addition, a diocesan magazine, "The Northland", has been 
started, which is unique in Canada. How great a change 
this is from when Bishop Renison first went there thirty- 


two years ago! In those days there was only one white 
parish, and a single railway station in the entire diocese. 

For many years Bishop Renison has been writing a 
weekly religious article for the Globe and Mail; these 
articles have given new hope and inspiration to thousands 
whose faith was wavering, just as the Bishop's life has 
been a shining light to so many others. 

Bishop Renison is one of the most important figures 
in the Church of England in Canada, and he is one of the 
School's most prominent and devoted Old Boys.

The swimming pool (donated by the late Britton 
Osier) , is one of the most popular spots around the School, 
and almost every hour finds someone bathing in its waters. 
The pool is not only used for pleasure, but also for instruc- 
tion, (the two words are not always synonymous), for it 
is here that life-saving classes are conducted, and badges 
are won. In this way the pool serves a very useful pur- 

In the pool also, Mr. Hodgetts produces his swimming 
teams, which are always contenders for the Little Big Four 
championship, and it is also the scene of the annual inter- 
house swimming competition, which for the last four con- 
secutive years has been won by Brent House! (Editor's 
note: The Record assumes no responsibility for this state- 
ment whatsoever.) 

It has always been the experience of several people in 
the School to find that the temperature of the water varies 
from time to time. For instance, a few weeks ago one 
could almost have taken a hot bath in the pool, and now 
the temperature must register about fifty degrees. 

Many unfortunate people have made "impromptu" 
entrances into the pool on birthdays, and it is even ru- 
moured that one boy went in with his full rugby equipment 


on! Perhaps this accounts for some of the pebbles and 
dirt which sometimes collects on the bottom. During last 
summer the town children made use of the swimming pool, 
and many of them received instruction under the direction 
of Mr. Armstrong. This is perhaps the best use that has 
yet been found for the pool. 

Swimming is, according to many authorities, an excel- 
lent sport for building up useful muscles, and thus it is 
good conditioning for certain sports played here. One 
thing, however, is certain, that the swimming pool is a gift 
that will always be appreciated by the School, and T.C.S. 
is deeply indebted to the late Mr. Britton Osier for this

The curtain rises . . . But before we proceed, let us 
discover how this amazing feat is made possible. 

To put on a play (after one has the actors), one must 
have a stage. Not being blessed with one of these, the 
School uses a boxing ring. This has, of course, many dis- 
advantages. The most noticeable one is that the floor 
creaks. This is nobly adapted to the presentation of a 
horror play, but as yet the School has not produced one 
of these. As most of us know, a boxing ring is surrounded 
by ropes. (It seems that the purpose of these is to pro- 
vide as many corners as possible, so that you are always 
trying to get out of one.) However, it has been deemed 
necessary to remove these ropes when the ring is to be 
used as a stage, with the result that between the stage and 
the foot lights is a yawning (not because of the play) 
chasm. (This offers a possible explanation of such hits as 
"Where's Charley?"). These are not the only disadvantages 
of the improvised stage. 

Although there have been many dramatic occurrences 
Inside the boxing ring, it is not usual to adorn the same 


with a proscenium. But when a play is to be presented, 
this is an absolute necessity. In these days of expensive 
and useless decoration, the School has taken a step back- 
wards and the proscenium, which confronts the spectator 
might have been modelled after a theatre in the time of 
Shakespeare, so devoid it is of ornamentation. 

We now have a stage (or a reasonable facsimile there- 
of) and a proscenium. All we need is a ceiling, lighting 
facilities, a backdrop, two side-drops, a front-drop (usually 
called a curtain) and a lemon drop to suck during the per- 
formance. Sounds easy, doesn't it? 

The ceiling is made of a large piece of white cloth, 
and the back and side-drops are masterpieces painted by 
the boys. The curtain is of some nonferrous material, and 
is raised and lowered by mechanism which makes as much 
noise as possible. As for the candy, we shall drop that

I hear a knocking, 

Knock, knock, 

But what is so infernal deep 

I cannot feel; my mind too weak, 

To banish fears I've had for years, 

Come in, come in, dear God. 

Still goes that knocking. 

Knock, knock. 

But still incensed my mind won't change, 

It's just hke hell; not out of range 

But near, so hot — so hot I yell 

Come in, come in, dear God. 

stop that knocking. 
Knock, knock, 

Infernal nonsense leave my mind, 

1 want so hard to feel your kind. 
And when I die, will you too cry 
Come in, come in, dear God? 

It's stopped, that knocking. 

Knock, knock, 

And now I've come and you're not here. 


I cannot find you. O Lord where 
Must I alone go, while you call 
Come in. come in, dear God.

It was mid-spring. The heavy rains had done their 
customary seasonal drenching for the year and the first 
daffodils had died and withered away. The early summer 
birds had already appeared and truly the "blooming garb 
of spring" was beautiful. 

As it was my day off from work, I planned to make 
the most of it. I rose early on what was to be a very event- 
ful Saturday morning so that I could have my chores 
finished by approximatelj^ eight o'clock. When my work 
had ended, I shouldered my pack and set off towards the 
hunting grounds which I alone haunted — hunting grounds 
consisting of a large series of swamps and marshes. 

Today was the perfect day, I thought, as the early 
sun had already warmed the earth. 

As I neared the Morass, I could hear the bull frogs 
croaking their approval to the fine day. The swamp-chats 
soon chimed in and grasshoppers started to spring from 
bulrush to cat-tail and back again. 

Suddenly the ground underfoot became marshy. I 
had reached to the edge of the swamp. I waded through 
the muck up to my knees in the slimy water. Then I came 
to my concealed dug-out and prepared to start off on my 
hunt, poling my way through clumps of reeds towards the 
very desolate parts of the swamp. As I poled I kept a 
close look-out for movements in the clumps of reeds or for 
lines of irregular ripples or wavelets in the water. I headed 
for a fair-sized island in the middle of the swamp. When I 
reached it, I moved cautiously lest the frogs betray my 
presence. Then I heard the sound that I had been listening 


for. It was slow and fairly regular, stopping only at short 
intervals. I put on some thick gloves that went up to my 
elbows and dropped slowly and deliberately to my hands 
and knees. In this manner I moved towards a large clump 
of rushes where I heard a sound. The noise stopped when 
I got about ten feet from the rushes. This was a good 
sign, but in order to take advantage of it I had to move 
quickly. I jumped into the middle of the rushes and 
grabbed at a shiny object. Immediately, as my fingers 
grabbed at it. the fight was on. I pulled with quick jerks 
and at the same time tried to pull up the rushes by their 
roots. Slowly, but surely, I backed away with my struggling 
prize. It was a four foot, three inch Giant Water Snake. 
The snake thrashed and writhed in protest at my hands 
and arms which were half dragging and carrying it back 
to my dug-out where one of my cages was waiting already 
open and ready. Now came the task of trymg to stuff the 
fighting snake into the cage which wasn't too much bigger 
than itself. However, with pressure on his head and wind- 
pipe he went in readily enough. 

I managed to catch ten other snakes that day, but the 
first one was my prize catch. I called the big snake "Two 
Step". A number of snakes escaped me, but I was satis- 
fied with the eleven, ten of which I sold to the Oregon Bio- 
logical Supply Company. 

"Two-Step", at first, was very docile and friendly, so 
our house was his house. He usually stayed coiled up 
under the stove, but occasionally he would venture across 
the hallway into the sitting-room and slither into a low 
leather chair. Our dogs, although they never bothered 
him, were notably jealous of him because of the attention 
he received. However, he was given too much freedom 
and was handled too much. Soon he became highly excit- 
able and irritated with the result that his temper would 
fly and he would strike without notice. 

In his second week of captivity it was decided that he 
'would have to be moved outside because of his ill-temper. 


I built him a big cage in the backyard with a makeshift 
lopping over it so that it could easily be removed to show 
spectators my new pet. Unfortunately, the topping proved 
to be too makeshift and one morning I found that "Two- 
Step" had escaped. I was very sorry about my loss, but 
made no attempt to find him in hopes that he would find 
his way back to his world of cat-tails and swamp-land, 
probably never to be disturbed again by human beings.

For those whom the title doesn't discourage, this 
essay is meant. I don't desire to convert you from popular 
to classical but only to put down a few simple facts that 
have occurred to me on the subject. This article will per- 
haps serve best when the blare of trumpet and sax falls 
heavily upon tired ears and a change, admitted or not, 
becomes desirable. Our so-called "great music" is worth 

What we search for during this period depends upon 
the searcher and his needs. For some it is merely relaxa- 
tion; others desire oral beauty. To capture the "atmo- 
sphere" of foreign countries and peoples is an excellent 
goal. With a little imagination one can picture secret 
marine grottos in the low staccatto of the bassoons. We 
capture the roving gypsy spirit from the violins and the 
warm rhythms and glittering glissandos of the harp. The 
snare drum heralds war, the tympani, distant summer 
thunder. Even a burst of silver fireworks on a night sky 
may be conjured up by the sounding of a gong. 

Classical music has always been represented by the 
unskilled to the unskilled as a jumble of sound in general 
and a great deal of noise in particular. Actually most of 
the violent anti-classicists are fans of it in varying degrees, 
if the truth be known. Tschaikovsky's B flat minor Con- 
certo and Chopin's Polonaise are good examples. The 


opinion of one's neighbour has always been the greatest of 
all obstacles to its pursuit. One fears he will be thought 
slightly unusual or even queer and the brave individual 
who dares smuggle a Beethoven album into his room feels 
extremely self-conscious when caught in the act. When 
one finally does get up enough courage to brave opinion, 
a dull, pointless classic is chosen (I freely admit such 
animals do exist.) Naturally it is disliked. One says "Poof, 
I thought so", and proceeds through life ignoring one of 
its greatest pleasures. I've heard many a jazz fan making 
uncomplimentary remarks about certain of his recordings 
but because he hears one bad record he doesn't immediately 
turn to classics and ignore popular completely. This is a 
rule that doesn't work both ways, and classics have "three 
strikes" against them to start with. You've heard hun- 
dreds of times the suggestion that all aren't able to 
appreciate classics. This is nonsense! Classics aren't 
nearly the "olives" some people accept them as. 

Classics won't hunt you down like jazz, pounding 
through your loudspeakers every second of the day. 
They're there, but you have to seek them. Certainly no 
one likes the same things and you have to hunt till you 
find what you do like. All it requires is an open mind (an 
extremely rare commodity), a bit of inquisitiveness. and a 
little honest effort. 

The results will vastly repay any work one cares to 
put on the subject, and will prove a life-long companion. 
A certain number of us will turn to this field eventually 
as we grow older, and be angry at ourselves for not having 
started sooner. "There is so much to hear and so little 
time to hear it in." So why not start the hunt soon? 

— J. D. Miller ii, Form IV B. 



Through the dirt-crusted windows he saw 

Grey lawns; sloping away from cowering elms. 

And in his thoughts and visions they became 

The marble floor of an historic palace. 

The drooping elms became lofty arches, 

Standing straight and all with arms upstretched, 

He stood there; Ulysses, or Caesar 

Gazing down on the mustered wealth of Rome. 

His men, his army, his people. 

Together they had gone, had seen, had conquered. 

They had pushed back the Briton to the hills; 

Violently subdued the fiery French; 

The Moors; the Spaniards; all had succumbed, 

Up to that glorious day when he ruled all. 

And then his mind forgot his fickle men. 

It conjured up a vision of the Nile. 

The Nile; with endless rows of pyramids; 

The swarms of buzzards and the hot sand. 

Musk-scented Cleopatra drifted by. 

She, proud in her conquest o'er a real man. 

And he, attempting to regain his youth 

Through pursuit of his passions now long dead. 

His mind gained momentum; shifted again 

To the placid sea; in whose cool waters 

As a youth he had swum; had sailed; had lived; 

To the forboding forests, fertile plains, 

To rippling streams, and wide expanse of earth 

Appearing gold in the Sun's friendly grasp. 

Thunder shook the skies; the rain came down. 

With the rain, he lost his marble palace; 

He lost his love; his men; his vision. 

No longer did he see the smooth blue sea. 

Through dirt-crusted windows he saw grey lawns; 

Sloping away from tired elms.

The crumpled heap did not move, but how could it? 
It was just a piece of used note-paper. It seemed a shame 
though, that this paper could not move, because, if it could 
move, and perhaps talk, it could tell us the story of its life. 
I am sure it had an exciting life. Maybe it had been in a 
stand of pines surrounding a pioneer's cabin, acting as 
wind-break, or, on the other hand, was a beautiful white 
birch on the edge of a peaceful lake of unmarred beauty. 
Perhaps Champlain pulled his canoe up beside a young 
sapling which later on grew into a beautiful tree that was 
cut down by some ignorant lumber- jack, and now is a piece 
of used note-paper. 

Long ago, before Pulp and Paper mills came into 
Northern Ontario, it was a place where one could go and 
see trees and rocks not bearing the scars of the activities 
of a lumber company or a messy, thoughtless camper. But 
now when we take a trip through the wilds of the Hali- 
burton region or up the French River and into Georgian 
Bay, we see on our right and on our left, dead, decayed, 
trees bearing the scar of a lumberman's axe. They were 
all, probably, at one time or another, tall, stately trees 
amongst a growth of thick, green foliage where bald- 
eagles could build their nests and chipmunks could have 
their homes and a place to store nuts for the winter. This 
deliberate spoilage of Ontario's northland can and must be 
stopped, and it only can be stopped by having more areas 
like Algonquin Park. 

After all, Canada is noted for its natural beauty. Tom 
Thompson, perhaps Canada's greatest artist, painted, and 
only painted. Northern Ontario. The bright colours of the 
North put down on canvas, in bold outlines began to raise 
interest among the critics of other art-loving nations. 

Ontario, because of its good fishing and hunting be- 
came a large summer play-ground, attracting thousands of 
tourists each year. Yet the attraction is slowly declining. 
Fish are being killed because of pollution of lakes and 


streams by pulp and paper mills. What were once vast 
stands of pine, birch, and hemlock are now grave-yards of 
dried, ugly stumps. 

Why does a stately tree with a story of its life, prob- 
ably beginning before our forefathers came to this con- 
tinent, now have to be a piece of crumpled note-paper lying 
motionless in a waste-paper basket?

Last spring, while tramping through the far northern 
woods, I came upon the majestic Snake River, its coat of 
ice shining in the afternoon sun. Only the middle of the 
river was ice-free, but here and there the swift flow was 
bridged by fallen logs which had been hurled down from 
a saw mill farther up the river. The ice looked none too 
safe, and it was time for the spring break-up, but I had to 
chance crossing it, as night would soon be upon me. 

Picking my way carefully towards the river's edge, I 
at last reached the smooth ice of the river. Edging out 
over the ice towards a log which spanned the dark water 
in the centre, I suddenly felt a cracking around me, and 
observed to my horror, that I was completely separated 
from the rest of the ice. Before I could reach the edge, 
the ice floe had moved out into the centre of the stream, 
and was moving slowly down river. Below me, as far as 
I could see, the ice was heaving and cracking, being carried 
away by the current the minute the crack was complete. 
Each time I tried to leave my plunging monster, a flip of 
the current would send me far away from the solid ice. 
This agonizing situation lasted for what seemed hours, 
until at last the floe came to rest on the shore of a small 
island, supporting only one or two minute firs. 

As I stepped onto the island, the loss of weight caused 
the floe to be picked up and carried downstream by the 
current again, leaving me stranded on this lonely island, 


waiting for I knew not what. The water grew darker and 
colder as the day drew to a close, and the sky began to 
show the first signs of a brilliant sunset. In a little while 
the sky flared with a golden sunset, clear, but for a few 
black sinister clouds. 

The northern hills stood etched against the coming 
night, in the majesty and solitude that only the north 
lands know. In the top of a lonely aspen, a porcupine 
began its daily meal of the tree's tender young bark. The 
chipmunks' loud clamour penetrated the still evening air, 
bringing a feeling of awe and wonder over me. A deer, far 
down the river, was drinking the cold black water in silent 
gulps. The current was slower now, and all the land was 
grotesque with the last remaining rays of sun. The whole 
scene reminded me of the traffic on the city streets. There. 
the law of the city caused the light to change, and those 
on one side slowed to a stop, while those on the other side 
began to move again. Here in the wilds, the law of nature 
causes the lights to change, and everything on this side 
ceases to move, while those far beyond the horizon, on the 
other side of the world, begin to move again, with the 
coming of the light. 

A jam of ice had caused the floes to pOe up and it was 
now possible to cross to the land, but I decided not to. I 
lay down, and gazing up into the full bright face of the 
moon I felt a great satisfaction, for nothing can compare 
with the dark stillness of the northern night, when one is 
guarded by those stalwart hills, which have stood for cen- 
turies, unmoved by any human force, obeying only the laws 
of the great outdoors.

Mexico! The land of fabulous wealth and of unbe- 
lievable poverty, the land of awe-inspiring spectacles and 
of unmentionable filth and squalor. The land of daily 
sunshine, and of daily rain .... 

Mexico City, reigning eight thousand feet in the air, is 
surrounded by mountains towering up another ten; and by 
Popocatepetal, the ice-topped Goddess. 

Side by side live the old and the new. Farmers plow 
their maize with patient cows, beside smoke-belching oil 
refineries. Fifteen story apartment buildings are sur- 
rounded by one-room adobe huts. Seven-passenger 
limousines speed by on eight-lane highways, hiding the 
peasants on their burros. Modern department stores 
boasting plate-glass fronts and window displays are out- 
manoeuvred by travelling vendors, who sell silver brace- 
lets, wallets, lottery-tickets, belts, purses, tortillas, ice- 
cream and all types of dogs, from the Scottie to the 
Mexican five-toed hairless. Tourists stopping for inter- 
sections are urged to buy hai-lai tickets, newspapers, 
tickets to the bullfight, (sadly out of date) and hats made 
from straw. On Sunday the cities sleep, while outside 
them crowds of forty thousand watch the colourful, excit- 
ing and pitiful spectacle of a man fighting a wounded bull. 
For the rich, Mexico abounds in good foods; all types of 
meats, cheeses, wines, and pasteries imported from 
America. For the poor, the tortilla, chile and bean, cost- 
ing about twenty cents a day, have to suffice. The gaily 
decorated night-clubs, with American foods and two 
orchestras, form an odd contrast to the simple native folk- 

Mexico. Glorious to the rich; livable to the poor. Its 
swamps and lowland are encircled by lush, fertile midlands, 
which in turn arch their necks to the towering mountains 
that constitute the backbone of Mexico. Amid the wilder- 
ness of the mountains, entirely surrounded by them, sits 
the largest and most beautiful city, Mexico City. No water- 



ways even attempt to molest her boundaries, (except the 
floating gardens of Xochimileo) ; her surrounding land is 
volcanic ash; the air routes are dangerous, traversing 
swamp, forest and mountain. But to two and a quarter 
million people she is beautiful. Cut by huge American- 
made eight-line highways; flanked by twenty-story ofRces; 
soothed by rows of palm trees ; and covered forever with a 
blue sky, she remains as picturesque as Valhalla at sunset. 
Yes, Mexico is beautiful in its richness; and strangely com- 
pelling in its pathos. It has truly been called "The land 
of contrasts."

For many years this vessel stood 

Filled with purest elixir 

Unknown, within, that peace 

Which no movement of the lips can avow, 

No, nor cry of parched throat 

Harsh in the silence. 

One day, the vessel broke, 

And the essence 

Came to its fulfilment.

By this time in the summer the old and battered con- 
troversy arises of which is superior — cricket or baseball. 
And so with an unbiased view we take you to Yankee 
Stadium where the Yankees are playing baseball against 
the Devonshire County eleven. 

The English team in spotless white is up to bat. Sir 
Stafford Rawley steps to bat and asks for middle and leg. 
The only reply he gets is a swift ball to the middle of his 
leg thrown by a rather filthy-looking individual from far 
off with a completely bent arm. But to the amazement 
of his lordship, instead of being called L.B.W. he is escorted 
to a dirty piece of sack which for some undiscovered 
reason is called first base. The Honourable Frederick Marr 
next in the box plays a clever cut which flies high over the 
stands for an almost certain six. The shout "foul ball" 
is too much for Freddie, who saw nothing foul in the stroke 
or the ball, but considers it a jolly fine bit of batting, and 
is about to appeal when a second ball flies by him before 
the first has been returned. The umpire shouts "strike 
two!" and his honour is about to explain that he really 
didn't move his bat at all, when a third ball passes him and 
he finds himself being led to the side without having even 
a clap to welcome him home. The last cricketer to take 
the plate is Sammy Warburton. Baffled by the trials of 
his former team-mates and making sure he stays — at least 


until tea, he plays a careful block back to the pitcher and 
waits for the next ball. But as he sees the pitcher has no 
intention of throwing him another and is playing catch 
with the man standing at first base, he is about to inquire, 
when the rude little man dressed in navy blue shouts rather 
loudly in his ear, "Yer out!" 

Now we take you to the pitch at Devonshire commons 
where after staying in the field for about two days the 
Yankees are about to bat. Their hands are rough and 
raw from a horrible hard red ball and these "sissy" Eng- 
lishmen don't even use a mitt. Ozark "Joe" Ike is first to 
bat and he puts his bat over his shoulder and prepares to 
bat, after rubbing the chalk from the crease onto his 
hands, thinking it is resin. The ball comes slowly down 
the pitch and Ozark luckily gets a piece of it and hurling 
his bat on the ground runs half way down the wicket and 
slides the rest of the way coming in as he imagines a split 
second before the throw. He stands up to hear gentle- 
man-like clapping and imagines it is because of his safe 
slide to first, only to realize that this game is played back 
to front and the man from the other direction has tagged 
him because he didn't take his bat with him. Slugger 
Sinatra is up next and being the brain of the team has 
figured out by geometric devices that if one places one's 
bat directly before one's wicket one cannot go out. For 
the first two balls his theory succeeds but on the third ball 
an off -break captures his middle stump. On having his over- 
sight explained, Slugger spits viciously on the ground ex- 
claiming "And dey call dis a gentleman's game". The 
Yankees went down fast in many ways, such as when Fleet 
Smith sped past Bobby Elephant Conway to run the 
wicket twice while "the Elephant" only ran it once getting 
them both run out, and Joe Dimaggio swinging back on a 
full toss knocked all three stumps out of the ground. 

It is enough to say that the Yankees beat the Devon- 
shire boys 69-1 at baseball (this run received when the bat 
boy walked two and hit two of the Englishers) and the 



Devonshire lads edged out the Yankees 4017 to 7 (2 byes, 
3 wides, and 2 successful sliding bunts) at cricket. Even 
though the Yankees did it in one afternoon and it took the 
cricketers three days, the refreshments of crumpets and 
tea were considered superior in England to the hot dogs 
at Yankee Stadium.

The School has prospered only through the generosity 
of Old Boys and friends, who have ceaselessly given aid to 
this institution. Their kindness built the present buildings 
and playing surfaces. There is one major absence in these 
surfaces, and some other gaps in the athletic equipment 
at the School. 

Track and Field are rapidly becoming a main sport 
not only in the School, but also throughout Canada. Watch- 
ing Sport's Day recently, I was very impressed to see that 
the general proficiency of track and field throughout the 
School has risen considerably since I first came here. Six 
marks bettered those set at Varsity Stadium by T.D.I.A.A. 
athletes on a cinder track. The intermediate 220 yards 
was a full second faster, and also faster than the Senior 
mark. Another higher mark was set in the Senior 120 
yards high hurdles v/hich was over a second faster than in 
Toronto. The Junior shot was thrown three feet further 
here. Only two of the six marks were records. All this 
and on grass too! A wonderful acquisition by the School 
would be a cinder track. A suggested position for this 
most needed addition is encircling the Middleside gridiron. 
If the rough by the road was flattened, with a bit of 
squeezing, a hundred yard straightaway and a circling 

58 rniNiTY college school record 

track could be built. A most necessary milestone for school 

The rough behind the Junior School, which has been 
partially levelled, should be completed as a playing field as 
soon as possible. The addition of a new playing field is 
vitally important as the campus and the two J.S. fields are 
overcrowded. And finally comes the seating capacity of 
the gymnasium. Each year a larger crowd appears for 
Inspection Day and Speech Day, and the limited seating 
space in the one gallery is quite a headache. All the people 
that come to Port Hope to see these events should be 
accommodated, but they cannot be. 

However, before terming these faults a criticism one 
must consider the various circumstances. Building costs 
are phenomenally high, and with the marvellous new arti- 
ficial ice rink and the new chapel to be built this fall, these 
other minor improvements will have to wait. Another 
point of utmost importance is the fact that here, I believe, 
we have the finest over-all facilities of any School in 
Canada. It is far better never to reach the ultimate in 
perfection thus always having something to strive for, than 
to attain that goal and become dissatisfied because of the 
lack of advancement. But it would be pleasant to see a 
cinder track at T.C.S. 

— J.J.M.P. 





The cricket season has always suffered from the lack 
of time in which to obtain a sufficient amount of practice, 
and this year the situation is worse than ever. However, 
due to an excellent spring, the squad has been able to prac- 
tise nearly every day since the Easter vacation. Mr. Lewis 
is again the coach and is getting able assistance from 
Messrs. Gwynne-Timothy, Cole and Ken Scott. With nine 
players from last year's Bigside, Jerry Paterson was elected 
captain and Nigel Thompson vice-captain. 

Three games have been played so far, only one of 
which was won. The first match of the season saw the 
Peterborough Whitaker C.C. dismiss the School for sixty 
runs and then score seventy-nine for six wickets. Thomp- 
son i and Bruce made a second-wicket stand for thirteen 
runs apiece to emerge as top scorers for the team. Cooper ii. 
who went in last, did some lusty hitting to run up twelve 
markers in a few minutes. Pyle took six for twenty-nine 
and Booth four for seventeen. The visitors opened with 
Wright and Booth, who scored twenty-four and twenty- 
two respectively, and soon ran over the School's score. 
Cox was our most effective bowler taking two wickets for 
twenty-nine runs, while Paterson i, Bruce and Cooper ii 
bowled one each. In the next game the Toronto Cricket 
Club whipped the team two hundred and two for two to 
seventy-seven all out. This high scoring was due to some 
sparkling batting by Forbes and Wells, the former netting 


a brilliant century which included three sixes and eleven 
fours and the latter seventy-five. The only two batsmen 
to fall went to Paterson i and Cooper i. For the School 
Bruce, Paterson i and Ketchum batted well getting sixteen, 
fifteen and fourteen runs respectively. Snively took four 
for twenty-nine. McLean two for sixteen and Gunn two for 

The first victory of the season came at the expense of 
the Yorkshire C.C. The Toronto club batted first and were 
dismissed in an hour and a half for only forty-two runs. 
The School exhibited some excellent fielding and some 
steady bowling, with Bruce, Maier and Paterson making 
three good catches. Cooper i took three wickets for five 
runs. Paterson three for twelve in twelve overs, and Cox 
the remaining four for twenty-four runs. Perkins was 
the only visitor to stick, scoring seventeen markers before 
being clean bowled by Cooper. The School then went in 
and knocked out ninety-three runs in an hour and a half 
for five wickets down. Feature of the day was the second- 
wicket stand of Thompson i and Bruce which counted 
seventy-six markers. Thompson scored an outstanding 
forty-one before being bowled by Cronyn, who took three 
for ten runs. Bruce tallied 37 runs not out. 

All indications point to a fine season. The team has 
shown flashes of the ingredients that go to make a good 
unit, excellent fielding, steady bowling and batting, and a 
fine spirit. We all wish them the best possible success in 
their Little Big Four encounters. 

Bigside — Paterson i i captain), Thompson i (vice-captain), 
Bovey, Bruce, Cooper i. Cooper ii, Cox, Deverall, Harris i, Howard, 
Ketchum, Maier, McDerment, Thompson iii. 


This year two Middleside teams are again in action. 
Mr. Gwynne-Timothy is coaching the second eleven and 
Mr. Cole the third. 


The seconds opened the season weakly against Lake- 
field, showing very weak fielding, and they were lucky to 
gain a draw. The Grove batted first, and with McCulloch 
and Arnoldi scoring ninety-eight runs between them, ran 
up over a hundred for one wicket. The School then went 
in and were soon dismissed, Hughes i scoring seventeen 
and Howard nineteen being the only batsmen to make a 
stand. Their next contest showed much more promise, 
with an easy eighty for five to thirty-two verdict over- 
U.C.C. Osier took five wickets for the School, while 
Cooper ii and Lewis knocked out twenty-four and twenty- 
three runs respectively. 

The third game saw the team, bolstered by Mr. G. 
Timothy, Mr. Cole and Ken Scott, lose to the Peterborough 
Whittaker C.C. by one hundred and forty-seven to ninety- 
five. Mr. Scott, who made a sound fifty-two, and Mr. Cole 
opened for the School and ran up a total of seventy runs 
before retiring. The rest of the team were dismissed for 
twenty-five. The return match with Upper Canada was 
played by the third eleven who lost a close seventy to sixty- 
one contest. Lace led the Toronto team with twenty-seven 
runs, while Lewis scored sixteen for the School. 

Both teams have shown much unprovement and a con- 
tinuation of their good record can be expected. 


The Littleside squad has again been divided into A 
and B groups under the coaching of Mr. Bagley and Mr. 
Dening. Mr. Ken Scott has also given some valuable coach- 
ing assistance. The usual games have been arranged with 
U.C.C, S.A.C. and Lakefield, and also a tilt with the Junior 

The A team has already played their two games with 
Upper Canada, the first played away being lost sixty-six to 
thirty-six. The team never got rolling against the bowling 
of Bain and Reese, with Slater and Walrath being our top 


scorers with nine and seven runs respectively. In the return 
match the scoreboard did not look favorable with two 
wickets down for no runs, and captain Church retired be- 
cause of an injury, but Seagram and Symons made a good 
stand which netted them eighteen runs apiece. The college 
opened weakly against the School's total of sixty-eight, 
losing seven wickets for twenty runs. However, Standing 
made a creditable twenty-one not out to raise the final 
score to sixty-eight to fifty-eight. Slater bowled excep- 
tionally well taking seven wickets. 

In their first contest of the season the B squad were 
nosed out by three runs, sixty-seven to sixty-four, by 
U.C.C. For the School Woods ii with twenty-five and 
Strathy with twenty-four were outstanding. All indications 
point to the continued success of both teams. 


With the first game in early December, the basketball 
season finally closed in late March. Both Junior and Senior 
squads had interesting if not too successful seasons. The 
Seniors at times showed flashes of brilliance and streaks 
of inability, but they managed to keep these well spaced 
and wound up in second place in their league as well as 
making an excellent name for themselves in Montreal. 
Most of the squad are expected back next year, and with 
their added experience, and under Mr. Hodgetts' careful 
hand, they should shape into a first class team. The Juniors 
had their best season since the game was inaugurated in 
the School; they finished second in their league and deve- 
loped several fine players. 

T.C.S. vs. p. C.V.I. 
March 18 

In a pair of games played against Peterborough Col- 
legiate and Vocational Institute at Peterborough, the 
School made a comparatively poor showing despite the 


fact that their opponents went ahead to win the Canadian 
Junior Basketball Championship. The Seniors were severely 
drubbed by the score of 53-17. while the Juniors managed 
to eke out a 27-27 tie. 

In the Senior game the team seemed lost in the big 
gym., and when Don Greenwood was put out of the game 
because of a knee injury, a great deal of the scoring punch 
was lost. The "Petes" repeatedly connected with fast 
breaks and maintained a steady defense throughout the 

P.C.V.I. displayed their ability from the first whistle 
and ran up an impressive 16-6 lead in the first quarter. In 
the second the School was held scoreless while the home 
team garnered another seven points. 

The second half was fai' more open with the Peter- 
borough team having an even more decided edge in the 
play. Although the Seniors were very disorganized they 
continued to try and added eleven points in the last quar- 
ter. The game ended with the School on the wrong end 
of a 53-17 verdict. Griff en, playing at centre was Peter- 
borough's spark plug with thirteen points, while Richard- 
son played excellently at guard. Lawson was the high 
scorer for T.C.S. with six. 

Although the Juniors only tied their game, it was the 
first time that a School team had done even this on the 
Peterborough floor. As usual in these close games the 
Juniors had to come from behind. The homesters had 
piled up a 17-10 lead at half-time, but this did not dis- 
courage the School, and in the last quarter they were 
shooting at every opportunity in order to tie the score. 
Finally in the last seconds Rawlinson sank a long push 
shot to make the score 27-27. 

Rawlinson played an outstanding game, making ten 

points, with no fouls called against him. Evans and Young 

were best for the opposition. 

P.C.V.I. Seniors — Taylor, Seargent, N. Thompson, Hempstead, 
Northcott, D. Dibben, Griffen, H. Dibben, Grafstein, Richardson, 
B. Thompson. 


P. C.V.I. Juniors — Young, Achford, Pulley, Fortner, Bailey, 
Frise, Cunningham, Evans, Grant, Jopling, Hall. 

Seniors — Greenwood (captain), Wood (vice-captain), Pierce, 
Black, Doheny, Hughes i, Howard, Lawson, Cox, Smith i. 

Juniors — Croll (captain), Luxton (vice-captain), Lewis, Thomp- 
son iv, Emery i, Baker, Gundy, Rawlinson, Cleland, Bovey, Van- 
denBergh, Wilson. 


Brent House continued their sv^eep of the inter-house 
games taking all three basketball contests. The Bigside 
encounter was the most exciting. Brent winning on two 
last minute baskets by Alec Hughes, 31 to 29. Bethune 
had a decided advantage in height, but were greatly handi- 
capped by the loss of captain Don Greenwood in the second 
quarter. Behind 27 to 17 in the final quarter, Bethune 
caught fire to take a 29 to 27 lead gomg into the last 
minute, then Hughes did his scoring. Pierce, with eleven 
points, and Wood were best for the losers, while for Brent 
Hughes i, Howard and Lawson stood out. 

Flooring a strong Junior team, Brent humbled their 
opponents by forty-eight points, 65 to 17. The Bethune 
team was comprised mostly of Bantam players and fought 
hard throughout the game. Cleland and Rawlinson led 
the victors to their one-sided victory with twenty-four and 
seventeen points respectively. After three close quarters 
of play, Brent pulled ahead in the final frame to capture 
the Bantam House match 29 to 13. 

Brent: Howard, Lawson, Hughes i, Black, Rawlinson, Cle- 
land, Luxton, Croll. 

Bethune: — Greenwood, Wood, Pierce, Smith i, Cox, Walrath, 
Gundv, Bate. 



The School held its annual track and field events over 
a three day period. Sports Day falling on the 20th of May. 
A public address system was used for the first time and 
proved very effective. Eight new records were set, four 
in junior competition, and all titles were keenly contested. 
In the final count, Brent House retained the Inter-House 
Cup with an imposing total of 205 points to 100 for 

The Senior championship was taken by Hughes i, who 
won the javelin, discus and shot put and placed second in 
the hundred yard dash. In winning the Day ken Cup he 
created a new record in the javelin throw, tossing the spear 
nearly 144 feet. Little, who took second spot, captui-ed 
the hundred yards and the pole vault and placed second in 
the 220. Deverall captured two events, the high jump and 
the 120 yards high hurdles, and Miller i broke the cricket 
ball throw record with a toss of over 102 yards. 

Pierce won the Intermediate title for the second year 
in a row, winning the shot put, the high jump, broad jump 
and the hurdles in the outstanding time of 15.3 seconds. 
He also placed second to Selby in the 220 yards sprint ; this 
race snapped another record with Selby racing the distance 
in an excellent 23.3 seconds. Robertson, who won the four 
events he entered, took the Junior championship with ease. 
He captured the three dashes and heaved the eight pound 
shot forty-four feet for a new record. McDerment broke 
the records in the broad jump and hurled the discus six 
and a half feet farther than the previous mark.

The Gym. team this year proved to be one of the best 
in the School's history. Hugh Welsford, who captured 
the individual title, led the team to a convincing win in the 
Ontario Junior Championships. The high quality of work 
can be seen in the fact that fifteen year old Marshall 
Levey, the fourth man, placed eleventh out of thirty com- 
petitors. The team took first place in all the exercises 
except the mats, and Welsford performed an Olympic 
exercise on the parallels. With Welsford, Symons and 
Levey returning next year, the team is headed for the 
Canadian title next fall. To Messrs. Armstrong and Batt

who coached the boys must go some of the credit, but to 
the gymnasts themselves the bulk of the credit goes; their 
conscientious and consistent practice, continued during the 
Easter holidays, produced the excellent results. 


The general standard of gymnastic work was very 
high in this year's competitions, but the Littleside exhibi- 
tion was the weakest shown in many years. 

Hugh Welsford won the Tom Hyndman Memorial Cup 
for the best gymnast, with an imposing 211 point total. 
Thompson i and Symons followed in close order with 210 
and 209 markers respectively, out of the possible 215 
points. All three showed near perfect form as they did 
exercises on the horizontal bar, parallel bars, box-horse, 
pommel-horse and mats. 

Timmins ii captured the Middleside contest by one 

point over Brodeur, 159 to 158. Savage placed third, Mc- 

Derment and Muntz tied for first place in the Littleside 

competition, gaining 102 points out of a possible 120 total.

Hugh Welsford, who placed first individually and 
Nigel Thompson who placed second, paced the gym. team 
to a well deserved victory in the Ontario Junior Gymnas- 
tics Championship. The other members of the team, Scott 
Symons and Marshall Levey, took fourth and eleventh 
places respectively. 

Before some two hundred spectators at Hart House, 
at least half of whom were connected with the School, the 
first gym. team displayed excellent form to beat their 
closest rivals, Windsor Lowe Vocational, by 149 points. 
The School placed first in the pommel horse, horizontal 
bar, and parallel bars and sixth on the mats. Welsford 
captured first place on both the bar apparatus, and dis- 
played outstanding form in all his exercises. Thompson, 
who garnered a second and two thirds, Symons and Levey 
all did extremely well. 

A vote of thanks must be given to Mr. Armstrong who 
organized the meet, which was conducted very efficiently. 
Each exercise was marked out of 200 points, with two 
judges working on each apparatus. The teams consisted 
of four contestents the top three being counted in their

A long and successful season came to a close with the 
playing of the open final. The team showed consistently 
well and gave valuable assistance to the junior players. 
The most gratifying point of the season was the number 
and talent of these juniors, and their enthusiasm for the 
sport ensures a strong future for squash in the School.

Although only two meets were held, the calibre of 
swimming on the team was excellent. Led by captain 
Don Deverall and vice-captain Ken Maclaren, who were 
awarded first team colours for their work, the natators 
performed extremely well at the Little Big Four meet. Mr. 
Hodgetts' boys should be congratulated for their fine show- 
ing, and for their development of a good group of young 


After only two weeks of organized practice, the swim- 
ming team gave a fine performance at Hart House, finish- 
ing second to Ridley who were nine points ahead. The 
winners, led by Olympic representative D. Gibson, captured 
first place in four events of the eight event card. The 
School's lone victory came in the medley relay, with the 

Piaure by Mr. Dennys.

Owing to a most pleasant spring, tennis has flourished 
this year more than ever. The three courts, the Jellett, 
Osborne and Pangman, have been constantly in use, and 
a good calibre of tennis is being played throughout the 
School. Mr. Humble and Paterson i are in charge of the 
sport, and the Junior and Senior tournaments are well 
under way.

Once again the Trinity Term is vanishing with its 
usual deceptive rapidity. It is such a pleasant term, 
especially when we are blessed with day after day of sun- 
shine, that one is always sorry to see the end of it ap- 

Our sincere thanks to the Montreal Branch of the 
Ladies' Guild for a wonderful gift of some forty books to 
the Library. We can assure them that they will be put to 
good use. 

We are also very grateful to Mrs. Phippen for the gift 
of a number of books to our shelves. 

The Gym. Competition with St. Andrew's College was 
a very successful event and we hope that this will continue 
as an annual fixture. 

Welsford, N. Thompson and Symons have done an 
outstanding job in assisting to coach the Junior School 
Gym. team. Much of the improvement in the standard of 
our gym. work this year is due to their unselfish and un- 
tiring efforts. 


The office 

is empty now. 

The last hat 

and coat 

are gone 

from the tall rack 

in the comer 

by the closed door. 
The bro\vn chairs by the dark desks 
are vacant. 
The typewriters 

whose clattering keys are quiet now, 
are enclosed in black covers. 


The papers 

have been stuffed 

and piled 

in tall files 

and brown folders, 

or thrown 

in crumpled heaps 

in cluttered baskets. 

The odd one 

lies still 

on the floor 

where gray dust 

darkens the brown boards. 
The blinds are pulled, 
and only through a few long cracks 
can smoky air be seen. 
A faint muffled drone of street-cars 
and crowded traffic jams 
creeps shyly up from the dirty street below, 
and fades. 

The gray air 

turns to dusk 

around the cracked plaster walls, 


the dusty stains, 


the solemn comers, 


from the low ceiling. 
A strange unnoticed feeling haunts the air 
as if the room some person were 
who lies lonely and forgotten. 
Its very life is gone 
for it lives but eight hours a day; 
and then, 

hidden behind a closed door and a covered window 
as in a vague reverie or dim dream, 
slowly, silently, softly sleeps. 

— R. J. Anderson, Form III. 



The dawn crept over the sombre marshes, bringing 
with it a dull, cheerless day. The dry, brown rushes 
crackled as the blustering north wind blew in, bringing 
with it scents of the oncoming winter. To the boy, crouch- 
ing behind his rude "blind", his rifle across his knees, the 
wind was bitterly cold. It swept through his thin plaid 
shirt, making his teeth chatter and causing him to wish 
fervently that he had remained at home that morning. As 
he watched the cat's paws dart across the tiny pond be- 
fore him, he slumped into a half -daze. 

Suddenly, he was rigidly at attention, all his senses 
alert and keyed up. To his ears came a low, musical honk- 
ing and soon a flock of Canada geese appeared in a 
straggling V formation. The boy waited anxiously, hoping 
they would see the decoys placed at strategic points around 
the pool. To his disappointment, however, they swept on- 
ward, leaving the hunter to fall once more into his dejected 

So preoccupied was he that at first he did not notice 
a slight movement of the bushes across the miniature lake. 
A minute later a beautiful stag, slun and sedate, stepped 
from his protection. He raised his head, ears sharply 
pricked, eyes straining forward, nostrils flaring to the 
breeze. Satisfied that all was safe, the buck stepped to 
the water's edge and lowered his stately head with its 
noble crown of sixteen points to drink. It was at this 
moment that the drowsing boy came to his senses. With 
admiration he gazed at the beautiful creature. His hand 
crept for the loaded rifle. He cradled it in his arm and 
cuddled it to his cheek. The sights were in a straight line 
aimed directly below the animal's shoulder. Slowly the 
young hunter squeezed the trigger. 

Suddenly the barrel began to tremble. Wave after 
wave of apprehension swept through the boy. This was 
his first deer— what if he should miss? He MUST kill it! 


He shut his eyes and pulled the trigger blindly. The gun 
went off with a terrific explosion. The bullet ricocheted 
off a rock about ten feet to the left of the startled deer. 
With a frightened leap the stag was in the bushes and 
instantly melted away like a shadow. 

As the boy trudged wearily homeward, his gun tucked 
carelessly under one arm. he composed in his mind a story 
to tell his father to account for "the big one that got

In the darkened grotto muffled voices 
And stealthy laying-down of cards. 
A quiet night in a quiet city 
By candle-light. 

Through the darkened grotto window, 
A murky, earie glow's discerned. 
A quiet night in a quiet city 
In ghastly gloom. 

Soon, a grunt, sigh, snore, then sleep 

A dark form flits from the blood-smeared bed. 

A quiet night in a quiet city 

Then the mom. 

— R. Jackson, Form III. 


I was born in a great forest and my mother was a 
stately oak tree. I grew up to be a strong and healthy 
leaf but nothing ever seemed to happen to me until one 

"Fire!" The cry rang through the forest just when 
I was celebrating my first monthly anniversary. The rest 


of the leaves, as well as I, were frightened. We tossed 
about on our mother's strong arms and several of us 
fluttered off to the ground. I was determined to stay on 
the tree even if the fire did reach me. Well, it did! 

It was the next day, and all the animals were running 
from the fire. The birds were screeching, and in the rush, 
the wolves did not even stop to chase the odd rabbit. I 
braced myself while my brothers and sisters began to cry 
and wilt. The fire raged all around me but I restrained 
myself and would not give in. When the great holocaust 
left, I was all alone — a poor brown leaf on a charred tree 
in a barren forest. The winds blew, and I tossed to the 
point of being almost blown away. The rain came, and I 
had no protection. 

I cried and cried until one day when the snow came 
and I could stand it no longer. Giving in to Mother Nature, 
I slowly fell to the ground, and all was quiet. This ended 
my short, but eventful life. 

— R. G. Church, Form IIBI. 



The timid little man cowered in the witness box, the 
eyes of the whole court upon him. The outcome of this 
trial would influence him greatly. 

"Give your evidence," thundered the judge. 

The little man started, "Well . . . uh . . . " 

"Tell me exactly what happened on the night of the 
30th of May, 1949," continued the judge. 

"Well, we were driving along the . . . . " 

"Who were driving along?" 

"Well there was me and my wife and the thirteen 
kids and Uncle Bill and my mother-in-law and . . . . " 

"Okay, where were you driving?" 

"Through the Atacama Pass in the Andes. We were 
doing eighty and there was a drop of a mile or so on one 
side of the road." 



"Well, Algernon had just burst his bubble-gum in my 
face when I saw a thirty-seven ton bulldozer coming to- 
wards us at sixty miles per hour." (Pause) 


"We had a blowout." (Gasps) 

"Was there a sickening lurch, a terrific crash as your 
car hit the tank, a horrible skid to the precipice, and an 
awe-inspiring fall to the needle-sharp rocks at the bottom 
of the chasm?" (Pause) 

"Frankly .... yes." 

"What happened to the other occupants of the car." 

"They all fell on me and escaped unhurt." 

"Considering that final act of heroism, I think we'll 
let you in. Open the pearly gates!" 

— :C. O. Spencer, Form III. 


Every sport of our era contains a certain and fre- 
quently limited amount of good sportsmanship. Cricket, 
no exception to the rule, has earned itself the appellation 
"A (]^entleman's Game", this very title denoting the amount 
of good sportsmanship circulated therein. Probably 
originated in Great Britain, "the land of true sportsman- 
ship", cricket requires an even greater abundance of this 
quality than do most games. 

First, let us look at the habits and customs of the 
game itself. In cricket, an umpire's decision is never ques- 
tioned, as is the custom in hardball or, for that matter, in 
many games. When the field is placed, the two batsmen 
walk in amid the clapping of the rival team. This cus- 
tomary clapping is a sign of good sportsmanship and 
gentlemanly bearing. A sign of very poor sportsmanship, 
however, is to converse with the batsman while the latter 
is at his wickets, a process both discouraging and irritable 
to him. When the batsman is caught or bowled, if after 


a "Duck's Egg" or a "Century", he must keep a straight 
face, try not to hurl his bat at the wicket-keeper's head, 
and walk off like a man. This latter procedure is also 
performed amid the clapping of the rival team. 

In the case of a bowler, the level of sportsmanship is 
the same. A good bowler does not, as a rule, try to com- 
pletely frighten or maim the batsman for life. In many 
cases, such types have been barred from bowling. If a 
bowler gets a "wide", or a "no ball", he does not wind up 
and let go full toss at the umpire, but turns slightly crim- 
son, bites at a fingernail, and continues. 

Let us now take the fielder, whose usual complaint 
(poor thing) is "I stand in the hot sun all day and get no 
action" or "I need Unemployment Insurance". Usually a 
bad sportsman of this type bungles the precious few balls 
that come his way. He is dreaming of a New Jerusalem. 
Such a fielder should not play if he is unable to keep a just 
interest in the game. If, however, a fielder misses a catch, 
it is not customary to scream at him, but to pipe up with 
a jolly "Well tried, old chap!!" 

This is good sportsmanship in cricket.

Thanks to a wonderful spell of dry, sunny weather, 
cricket has got off to a very good start this year. As 
usual, all boys in the School are playing and great keen- 
ness is being shown all the way through. It is always 
difficult to forecast a cricket side's efforts but we seem to 
have a fairly strong batting and fielding team with per- 
haps some weakness in bowling.

During the few weeks the Headmaster was in England 
at Easter time he met many Old Boys. Ted Leather acted 
almost as his host, arranging accommodation for him, 
entertaining him at various times, giving a party for the 
parents of English Old Boys, and obtaining tickets for him 
to the House of Commons. 

Several T.C.S. Old Boys had lunch with the Head one 
day at the Goring hotel: John Gray, Jack Goering, Keith 
Tessier, Chester Butterfield, Peter Cleveland and John 
Whitfield. John Gray is preparing for his final Accountancy 
exams, working in his father's oflfice, playing cricket, aud 
generally in fine form; Jack Goering is with the Portland 
Cement Company, figure skating, playing soccer and 
planning to tour Europe by motor bike; Keith Tessier is 
in his final year at St. Paul's School and will probably go 
on to London University; he has completely regained his 
health. Chester Butterfield, Rhodes Scholar from Ber- 
muda, is living at London House, doing a bit of Law, sing- 
ing in the London Choral Society and learning all about 
the wonderful city of London ; Peter Cleveland has returned 
to live in England and conducts an exporting and market- 
ing business with one other partner; his architectural 
training is useful to him in planning displays, etc. Peter 
was instrumental in discovering the material required for 
the new cassocks after all the experts were puzzled. John 
Whitfield is doing his army service and at present is ad- 
vising troops on civilian careers; he had a most successful 
few years at Harrow. 


Peter Low was discovered at work in the Royal 
Academy Art School in the centre of London. He has sold 
several pictures recently, is married and has a son. Peter 
and Scott Medd have spent so many years at the Academy 
Art School and have done so v«/ell their names are the 
"Open Sesame" for visitors. 

Wing Commander Peter O'Brian called one day with 
his wife and young son: Peter is on the staff of the Army 
Staff College at Camberiey, a very important post. He 
had been spending the week-end with the Alan Stauntons; 
Alan is farming in Surrey and thoroughly enjoying it. 

On St. George's Day, April 23rd, a small dinner was 
held for Old Boys at the Goring Hotel. Unfortunately, a 
number of Old Boys were on the continent for the Easter 
vacation and others found it impossible to come at the 
necessarily short notice. Brian Archibald was the Chair- 
man, John Gray and Ted Leather did the organizing and 
the School was host. Those who attended were: Brian 
Archibald, Peter Cleveland, John Gray, David Carmichael, 
Richard Ransford, Tony Chipman, Jim Paterson, Boris 
Reford, John Symons, Douglas Hare, Chester Butterfield, 
Keith Tessier, Mark Balfour, Colin Scott, John Whitfield, 
Michael Keegan, Philip Richardson, David Brooks, James 
Dodd, Jack Goering, Christopher Brack (former Master), 
Susie Ketchum, Mrs. Philip Ketchum, the Headmaster. 

There were no formal speeches but the Headmaster 
gave a resume of events at the School, mentioning par- 
ticularly the plans for the Chapel and the new rink. It 
was decided to organize an English branch of the O.B.A. 
and John Gray has kindly offered to do the spade work 
and arrange gatherings from time to time. 

Everyone felt that the first sizable Old Boys' dinner in 
London had been very enjoyable and well worth repeating. 

Richard Ransford is a second Lieutenant in the British 
Army, stationed in Germany; Philip Richardson is a Fly- 
ing Officer in the Air Force ; Colin Scott is a cadet at Sand- 
hurst; Mark Balfour is in the steel business in Sheffield; 


David Carmichael is in the woollen business in Gloucester- 
shire and has recently been in New York; Mike Keegan 
and David Brooks are studying law at Gray's Inn; Mr. 
Brack is a Master at Cheltenham; James Dodd, Jim Pater- 
son, Tony Chipman, Boris Reford, John Symons are all at 
Oxford; Douglas Hare is at Bristol University. 

Scott Medd and "Peanut" Evans called at the School 
on March 28. Scott was out from England for a short 
time and "Peanut" is now living in Peterborough. In April 
the Head met Scott Medd again in London; he lives in 
Clifton but teaches Art in London two days a week.

A. C. F. Boulton. who died on March 12 at his home 
in Surrey, England, was one of the few T.C.S. Old Boys 
who have been elected to the British House of Commons. 
He was born in Port Hope in 1862. and became a barrister 
at the Inner Temple, London. 

At the meeting held in London to organize the T.C.S. 
Memorial Fund, Mr. Boulton was the Senior Old Boy; the 
Princess Alice and the Earl of Athlone made a special 
point of greeting him. 

Mr. Boulton's elder son died suddenly on his way home 
from India in 1936 and his younger son, a Midshipman in 
the Royal Navy, was killed in action in 1914, when he was 
only fifteen years of age. His daughter is the Principal 
of a girls' school in the North of England. 

Recently, Mr. Boulton had been writing a history of 
Canada, and it is hoped this will be published soon. 

T.C.S. was always close to Mr. Boulton's heart; he 
corresponded often with the Headmaster and he has re- 
membered the School in his will. 


The following notice appeared in The Times, London, 
on March 14th: 

Mr. A. C. Forster Boulton. joint founder with the late 
Sir Walter Besant of the Atlantic Union, now known as the 
English Speaking Union, died on Saturday at his home at 
Nevvdigate, Surrey. 

Alexander Claude Forster Boulton was bom at Port 
Hope, Canada, in 1862. His grandfather had been a bar- 
rister of Lincoln's Inn and was appointed a Judge in 
Canada. He was educated at Trinity College School and 
Trinity College, Toronto, where he graduated in law in 
1886 and practised at the Canadian Bar. In 1891 he 
married an English lady, Florence, only child of the late 
Henry Harms, and settled in England. He was called to 
the Bar by the Middle Temple in 1891 and practised on the 


South Eastern Circuit. From 1906 to 1931 he acted as 
Counsel for the Post Office at the Central Criminal Court 
and during the 1914-18 war was a Commissioner to the 
Loval Grovernment Board in Lancashire under the Military 
Service Act of 1916 and was also an arbitrator under the 
Ministry of Munitions. 

He sat as a Liberal for the Ramsey Division of Hunt- 
ingdonshire from 1906 to 1910 but was defeated in the 
CJeneral Election of the latter year. He made another effort 
in 1923 to enter Parliament for the New Forest and Christ- 
church Division of Hampshire, but was unsuccessful. He 
had travelled extensively in Canada, the United States, 
and Europe, and published, besides a number of legal text- 
books, a book of reminiscences entitled "Adventures, 
Travels and Politics", and "Liberalism and the Empire." ^ 
His wife died in 1903 and he is survived by a daughter.

There are many advantages to an education at T.C.S. 
Not the least of them is that a large part of the student 
body comes from distant and widely-separated parts of 
Canada and, in some cases, from places as far away as 
Bermuda and Peru. Since boarding schools have an in- 
herent tendency to stereotype one's sense of values and 
even to some extent one's personality, this influx of dif- 
ferent and distinct cultural and social backgrounds has an 
extremely healthy effect. Without it the interesting and 
educational flow of ideas and opinions would be denied us, 
and our school life would be infinitely less rich. 

This broadening influence on the life of the School is 
not yet complete. T.C.S. remains still to a large extent 
restricted to the sons of the privileged. It is for this 


reason that the campaign for the bursary fund has been 
launched. This is perhaps the most worthwhile enter- 
prise the School has ever undertaken. 

As a result of this campaign, deserving boys from 
almost all financial groups will be able to attend the School 
and to add their ideas and their background to the already 
rich and chequered pattern of the School. A more com- 
prehensive view of Canadian life will be afforded the boys, 
and the ideas of a large cross-section of Canada will merge 
here in the melting-pot of discussion. In this way T.C.S. 
will fill its position as a training ground for future leaders. 

But the authors of the bursary fund have more than 
this in mind. The advantages of education in a good 
boarding-school should not be restricted to a minority, but 
should be open to as many deserving boys as the School 
can accommodate. In this way T.C.S. will become a demo- 
cratic institution in a democratic state. 

The campaign, since its inception two years ago, has 
already had great success. Last year's Head Prefect sug- 
gested that each leaving class should make a joint contri- 
bution, and should keep in touch with one another to 
contribute each year. We hope that this work wUl be 
carried on and extended by this year's graduating class 
and those that follow and that, not satisfied with past 
achievements, we will look forward to helping the School 
to greater achievements in the future. — c.m.t. 


Mr. Editor: 

Perhaps you are one of the few people in this institu- 
tion who know how to use and how to enjoy your library. 
Now I must say that if this is so, you are very fortunate 
and have my sincerest admiration and congratulations. 
By a stroke of ill-fate, however, you seem to be in the 
minority. Very few of those fortunate enough to attend 
School here, and, indeed, very few of the people through- 
out Canada (even university graduates) have ever learned 
or wUl ever learn to make fitting and proper use of their 
private or public libraries. How much they are missing! 


In a School such as this we can and must partially 
account for this ignorance as part of a general indiiference 
to any appreciation of books, or, for that matter, of any 
printed matter outside the most popular pictorial maga- 
zines and the sports page of the daily newspaper. In 
times like these this attitude has been a disadvantageous 
result of the development of numerous new diversions such 
as the movies, the radio, and a constant publication of 
very low literature. This alibi accounts for a large per- 
centage of students, but there are many who have a fair 
appreciation of books — even if books which are only up to 
the teenage standards set by the Department of Education. 
A large number of these, who do use the library (after a 
fashion), find tliemselves often in a rut of either murder 
mysteries, sentimental novels of the "best-seller" class, or, 
as in some cases, of books dealing with such technical sub- 
jects as aviation — from the "Biggies" books on up. Ad- 
mittedly this is not a good habit for a reader; however, 
even these people, as well as those who delve into the 
darkest nooks of the history section for obscure bio- 
graphies, are blessed with the most abysmal ignorance of 
even the fundamentals of library organization. To me as 
a librarian and to sensible people to whom the library can 
be a centre of knowledge and of enjoyment, this situation 
is pathetic. 

I am not suggesting that we should all immediately 
memorize the salient points of the Dewey Decimal System. 
But surely it would be an excellent idea to gain some 
understanding of the organization of a library, of the 
science that lies behind the placing of thousands of books, 
and an appreciation of the labours that are entailed in 
maintaining the order and system. Truly to enjoy books 
should mean that we have a respect for their very selves — 
their bindings as well as their ideas — and undoubtedly it 
would be much more civilized to respect the sanctity of 
our library. 

If we train ourselves here to regard the library as an 
important part of our scholastic life, we should never for- 
get the existence of similar organizations everywhere we 
go and live in later life. I might here make a "plug" for 


the town library, the "Carnegie library" or whatever it 
may be called in your town. According to Sheridan, this 
widespread institution "is as an evergreen tree of diabolical 

One final suggestion, Mr. Editor. If you or a class- 
mate of yours does not happen to be planning a University 
life after leaving here, you or he should still never forget 
entirely the value of books and their teaching or their 
supply of enjoyment. Thomas Carlyle remarked that "The 
true University ... is a Collection of Books". 

You and I, and all of us here at Trinity, should realize 
the true value of that statement. 

— D.C.M. 



1866 - 1949 

Professor Michael Mackenzie, fondly known as "Mike" 
to scores of his friends, used to say that he hoped he would 
die with his hand on the tiller of his yawl. For many years 
his supreme summer enjoyment had been sailing the Great 
Lakes and on Tuesday, July 5, he collapsed while taking 
his yacht into Blind River and died an hour later. He was 
eighty-three years old. 

Most of his friends and many others who did not know 
him well enough to call him a close friend believe they will 
never meet a more wonderful character, a more under- 
standing and kindly person than Mike Mackenzie. He was 
a brilliant mathematician, but there was a depth to his 
mind which could not easily be fathomed. He was a man 
of infinite wisdom, yet he remained always simple and 
direct and thoughtful. He had the soul of a deeply re- 
ligious man and of a philosopher, yet he gave the utmost 
care to the little details of living. Children fascinated 
him, and he and his wife brought up many besides his own 
son and daughters. He loved the outdoors, yet most of 
his life was spent with figures. For many years he had 


110 peer as a mathematician and a specialist in Actuarial 
Science, but for a long period he found time to devote him- 
self to athletic affairs at the University of Toronto. 

Professor Mackenzie came to T.C.S .in 1882 and re- 
mained until 1884. He was a Prefect and he won prizes 
for mathematics and "the Book of Common Prayer". He 
entered Trinity College with the first Dickson Scholarship 
and during his career there he won successively the Bum- 
side Scholarship in Mathematics, the Wellington Scholar- 
ship in Mathematics, and scholarships in Physical and 
Natural Science and in Mental and Moral Philosophy. He 
took his degree with honours in Mental and Moral Philo- 
sophy and won the prize for the English Poem and the 
prize for the English Essay. 

Going on to Selwyn College, Cambridge, he became a 
Mathematics Scholar and was 25th wrangler in the mathe- 
matics tripos. 

For a time he was Mathematics Master at T.C.S. , but 
soon he entered University work and in 1895 he was ap- 
pointed Professor of Mathematics at Trinity College; as 
such he was then ex-officio a member of the Governing 
Body of T.C.S. For forty-one years, until his retirement 
in 1936, he remained Professor of Mathematics and during 
that time many honours came to him. 

In 1902 he took first place in the examinations of the 
Institute of Actuaries Part II. There were sixty-seven 
candidates for these examinations, from Great Britain and 
the Empire, and only thirteen were successful, two of them 
being T.C.S. Old Boys, M. A. Mackenzie and P. C. Papps. 
To come first in such a test was an exceptionally brilliant 
piece of work. 

Later Mike Mackenzie was selected by the Teachers' 
Insurance and Annuity Association of New York, endowed 
by the Carnegie Corporation, to be Vice-President, a rare 
honour for a Canadian, and in 1936 the Carnegie Corpora- 
tion presented him with a Bronze Medal for his achieve- 
ments in actuarial science. He was consulted by numerous 
governments and institutions on pension matters and he 
had much to do with instituting the Canadian Government 
annuities. He was elected a member of the Institute of 


Actuaries of Great Britain in 1899, in 1901 he was elected 
an associate, and in 1907 he was elected a fellow, another 
exceptional honour for a Canadian. He was also elected 
an associate of the Actuarial Society of America. 

For twenty-one years Professor Mackenzie was a 
member of the athletic directorate of the University of 
Toronto and he was President of the Athletic Association 
from 1916 until 1932. He was also Honorary President of 
the Intercollegiate Athletic Union. It has been said that 
no one man had so much to do with preserving the spirit 
of true amateur sportsmanship at the University as had 
Professor Mackenzie. A copper plaque has been placed in 
Hart House commemorating his services to University 

Many businesses recognized his extraordinary ability 
by appointing him director, and others regularly consulted 
him on intricate matters. 

Some years ago he came to T.C.S. to speak to the 
Sixth Form and those who heard him will never forget 
his words of wisdom or the great strength of the character 
that lay behind them. 

He was much in demand for many years as a speaker 
and always his words rang true and recurred often in the 
minds of those who heard them. 

The Mackenzie brothers, sons of Archdeacon and Mrs. 
G. C. Mackenzie, have made a lasting and exceptional con- 
tribution to Canada through the lives of the many men 
whom they have influenced; few families anywhere can 
have counted so many distinguished sons. 

Michael Mackenzie stood like a great oak, a landmark 
for all who knew him, an expert guide, a wise counsellor, 
a devoted friend. He will continue to be a shining beacon in 
the minds of all who had the privilege of associating with 
him. The School sympathises deeply with Mrs. Mackenzie 
and the members of his family in his loss.

The Chaplain Speaks m Chapel 

On Sunday, May 29, Mr. Bagley delivered the sermon 
at the afternoon Chapel service. He pointed out that world 
conditions have not improved to a very great extent since 
the end of the Second World War in 1945. There is no 
sign of harmony in the world except in the nations that 
are co-operating to unite against the threat which is com- 
ing from Eastern Europe. There is crime, labour struggles, 
and although man knows the good, he insists in doing the 

The Chaplain stated that the main cause of this lack 
of unity arises from the fact that every man thinks that 
he himself is the most important person on the earth: 
"worldly selfishness". Everyone must strive for his goal; 
to know God and to glorify Him. The only way to reach 
this goal is to abandon all thoughts of selfishness, pride 
and jealousy, and to seek true religion. Religion is not 
merely the pleasure one derives from the Church Service 
or music ; it is a deep seated conviction that there is power 
which comes from without the world and works in the 
world, this power emanating from God Himself. 


Man must be prepared to be loyal to Christ, and to 
have a spirit of enthusiasm for the cause which he be- 
lieves to be true. He must be ready to stake himself on 
what he thinks to be right. For it is in striving, not suc- 
ceeding, that we really win. 

Prison Reform 

On the fourth Sunday of term, instead of the usual 
sermon, Mr. J. A. Edmison, K.C., of the John Howard 
Society, also part-time secretary of the United Nations 
Society, spoke to the School on the subject of "Prison 

He opened his talk by outlining the life of John 
Howard, an English country gentleman of the eighteenth 
century. During his life he accomplished a great deal in 
England and on the continent towards bettering the pri- 
soner's lot. To-day we remember him by naming our 
societies for penal reform after him. 

Mr. Edmison then spoke of the Borstal system, in 
which a study of young prisoners is made. It has been 
shown that the majority of youthful offenders come from 
slum areas and unsatisfactory homes. The average young 
criminal has not had the opportunity to become a decent 
citizen. While he is in prison the Borstal system helps 
him, gives him an education, and prepares his for future 

A major part of the work of the John Howard Society 
is in rehabilitating and re-establishing released prisoners, 
and in fitting them for decent living. 

In conclusion Mr. Edmison mentioned the inscription 
on the memorial to John Howard in St. Paul's Cathedral, 
London : 

"He travelled the open but unfrequented road of 
Prison Reform". 

The more people who travel John Howard's road the 
better it will be for society and the citizens of our country. 


Chapel Funds 

The collection on Speech Day amounted to $314.37, 
probably a larger sum than ever given before at a Chapel 

Donations from the Chapel Fund have recently been 
made as follows: 

Neighbourhood Workers' Association for Bolton 
Camp, $25.00. 

Downtown Church Workers' Association for Moore- 
lands Camp, $25.00. 

The Andrew Duncan Home at Shiplake-on-Thames, 
Oxon, for invalid children, $20.00. 

The John Howard Society for the assistance of ex- 
prisoners, $25.00. 

St. Mark's Church, Port Hope, Restoration Fund, 

The Church Bible and Prayer Book Society, $10.00. 




The Memorial Chapel 

The architect, Mr. A. S. Mathers, has had a model 
made of the new design and we hope to print a photo- 
graph of it in this number. Very soon tenders will be 
called for and we trust that construction will begin before 
the snow flies. Donations to the fund are still needed and 
we are glad to say that they continue to be received. 

The New Rink 

The first sod for the Peter G. Campbell Memorial Rink 
was turned on Monday, July 11, 1949, at 3 p.m. An 
enormous twenty-ton bulldozer, with the Headmaster's 
hand on the controls, took a gargantuan bite out of the 
west side of the site on top of the Park hill. Before dusk 
all the stumps had been uprooted and with much of the 
soil and many boulders had been pushed down the hill to 
the east. 

The actual construction of the rink building will begin 
about July 27. The ice surface will be 200 feet by 85 feet 
and there will be seating room for fourteen hundred people 
and standing room for a thousand. The dressing rooms 
etc. will be in a separate structure at the front of the rink; 
Col. Mackenzie Waters is very kindly designing this build- 
ing for us. Because of the larger size of the ice surface 
and the cost of the artificial ice equipment, the building 
will have aluminum sides and roof. It will be set down 
into the hill as much as eighteen feet at one point and 
there will be planting around it. 



The Port Hope Town Council and Mr. H. R. S. Ryan, 
K.C., the town solicitor, have been most co-operative in 
helping to arrange the many details connected with the 
transfer of the site to the School, and of course the Rink 
Committee, with W. W. Stratton ('10-'13), the chairman, 
carrying most of the responsibility, has given very many 
hours to the consideration of all the details. 

Fine Weather 

It is a long time since we have had such an imbroken 
series of lovely, sunny spring days; from the end of April 
there was one fine day after another. The absence of rain 
adversely affected agriculture but the boys basked in the 

Cricket, 1949 

Our cricket eleven this year gave a most disappointing 
performance in the School matches; there is no disguising 
that fact. What the cause was, it is difficult to say, but 
it seems obvious that too much was expected of two 
batters who had good records in 1948. They did not come 
off this year and the rest of the team followed suit too 
often. Our teams must not rely on one or two players; 
each man must do his share and make certain that he 
improves in skill every day he practices. We may have 
been over-confident and "pride cometh before a fall" al- 
ways. Some times we seemed too casual. Perhaps we 
had too many coaches. Whatever it was we must not look 
for alibis, but begin to repair our own individual weak- 

There were some bright spots in Middleside and 
Littleside, and the Junior School continued its unbeaten 
record. Our congratulations to them. 

Fewer boys were playing cricket this year and we feel 
there is a limit to the voluntary plan; some promising 
talent was discovered after Speech Day. Too many boys 
and their parents are beginning to think that cricket is a 


waste of time and that the hours spent on the field can be 
used for study. Few boys can study profitably more than 
ten hours a day; all will study better after complete 
diversion of aii hour or two, such as cricket gives. Next 
cricket season we hope to see more boys playing the game ; 
it is an education of great value to do so. 

The Port Hope Recreation Programme 

It is a surprise to many visitors to see, in these long 
July days, scores of children bicycling and walking across 
the campus and along the road to the School. They come 
in the morning, in the afternoon and evening, of many dif- 
ferent ages. They are the youngsters for whom the 
recreation plan was organized. At T.C.S. they are taught 
to swim or to swim better, they play tennis or soccer and 
the boys are given lessons in boxing. In the afternoons 
and evenings the members of the Port Hope Tennis Club 
use the three hard courts. 

Mr. Armstrong is again directing the recreation pro- 
gramme which serves such a long felt need in Port Hope. 
The School is glad to be able to help in this v/orthwhile 
community effort. 

Representative Dinner 

On the last Saturday before Speech Day, the Repre- 
sentative Dinner was held. This was a combination dinner 
for the Basketball, Squash, Swimming, Skiing, and Cricket 
teams; the Debating Society, the Play Cast, the Art Group, 
the Librarians, the Crucifers, the Choir, and last but not 
least, the Record Staff. This initial combination dinner 
for all those who have represented the School was a great 
success and should be equally successful in future years. 

After an excellent chicken dinner with full trimmings, 
the Headmaster started off the round of speech-making 
and toasts. He commended the activities all the repre- 
sented groups and said that those concerned had much to 
do with the public relations of the School ; further speeches 
were made by Messrs. Cohu, Humble, Bagley, Dale, Lewis, 


Armstrong, Hodgetts, Deverall, Taylor i, Macklem, Doheny. 
Paterson i, and Paterson ii. A surprise announcement 
was made by the Headmaster to the effect that while in 
England he had secured the services of Alfred Pope, in 
past years one of England's best cricketers. Mr. Pope will 
coach the cricket team next year; his wife and he will run 
the tuck shop, and in winter he will help with the rink. 

All in all, it was a wonderful evening, and everybody 
had a good time. Thanks go to Mrs. Wilkin and her staff 
for the excellent meals, and the speakers for their short, 
witty speeches. Everything taken into consideration, the 
first representative dinner was a great success. 

The Development of Towns 

The School was very fortunate to hear on May 27. an 
illustrated lecture on the Development of Towns, by Pro- 
fessor Anthony Adamson of the University of Toronto. 
Beginning with the early Greek cities and proceeding 
thence to Imperial Rome, Professor Adamson pointed out 
their characteristics, the highlights of their architecture, 
their respective merits and shortcomings, and what we 
may learn from them. Then he discussed the medieval 
town, with its limitations due to the walls, and how each 
city was built around its masterpiece, the cathedral or 
church. In connection with his talk Professor Adamson 
showed some very fine slides of the architecture of the 
period, especially Gothic. Unfortunately time did not per- 
mit a full discussion of the modern town, but we were 
shown model towns constructed in pre-war Germany and 
in Sweden, as examples of what careful planning can do, 
as well as plans for new towns in Canada. The talk ended 
with a warning of what can and will happen to our sur- 
roundings unless we plan our future towns in a scientific 
and orderly, but no stereotype, manner. We owe our 
thanks to Professor Adamson for providing one of the 
most interesting and informative lectures that we have 
been fortunate enough to attend in a long while. 


The Art Group 

The Art Group has practically suspended operations 
this term after a very successful year. 

The Little Big Four Art Exhibit came to our School 
at the beginning of this term. Most of the work in it by 
the other schools was done by their Lower Schools. On 
the other hand, ours was composed mainly of the work of 
our senior boys. All the exhibits were of high calibre, 
although the efforts of U.C.C. seemed to stand out, taking 
age into consideration. 

The Dance decorations were also a big success. 
Although few of the girls could interpret the song titles 
the "Bunny Bar" was wildly acclaimed. 

This year Mr. Key and Brinckman have rendered 
great service to the Art Group and we hope that next year 
will see even greater achievements. 

The Leaving Dhmer 

Our guest of honour at the Leaving Dinner this year 
was Dr. R. K. Stratford, Director of Research of Imperial 
Oil, and the father of a leaving boy. After a fine dinner, 
for which we are greatly indebted to Mrs. Wilkin, the Head- 
master introduced the speakers, Dr. Stratford and Thomp- 
son, the Head Prefect. 

Dr. Stratford gave us a most interesting informal 
talk, a summary of which follows: 

Dr. Stratford stated that men going through Univer- 
sity should endeavour to obtain a broad educational back- 
ground for whatever vocation they finally choose to follow. 
He illustrated this point by referring to a conversation he 
had had many years ago when he enquired about what 
options he should take on entering his third year at Univer- 
sity. He was told that it did not matter, since in all 
probability he would not follow the line of work which he 
had decided to study. He also used the illustration that 
in 1870, German scientists requested that young students 
obtain a classical education before entering upon scientific 
studies, because, in their opinion, such students in the end 
were better scientists than those who specialize too early. 

He then enlarged upon this theme and stressed the

necessity for men to develop a broader interest in the 
great cultural inheritance of the world. This, he empha- 
sized, applied particularly to Canadians and Americans 
who, in contrast with the European, are inclined to put too 
much weight not only upon the making of money but also 
on the idea that the measure of their success is exemplified 
by the amount of chrome plate on their car, the number 
of bathrooms in a home, etc., and not upon one's knowledge 
and appreciation of music, sculpture, drama and art. 

Dr. Stratford continued his address by advising that 
security should not be a very prominent factor in our lives 
for many years to come, but we should be courageous and 
prepared to take risks that people with less inherent ad- 
vantages could not do. 

In summary he recommended a broad and liberal 
education which included an appreciation of all the arts 
and that, armed with such knowledge, we should have 
courage to go forth and fight without too much attention 
to security. 

Finally he read an excerpt from Winnifred Holtby's 
book which defined the difference between artists, whom 
she termed runners, and teachers; and she pointed out 
that few were so gifted that they could be both rimners 
and teachers as were "... Christ the greatest, and Buddha 
and St. Francis and the Saints." 

We are very grateful to Dr. Stratford. His informal 
talk, interesting to all of us, has given us advice that we 
will remember and use. 

Thompson made a brief review of the year and 
thanked the Headmaster and the Masters for the help 
they had given the boys. The Headmaster then said his 
formal farewell to the Leaving Class mentioning how 
quickly the years pass and how little time there really was 
to make one's life count, that there were few men of great 
stature to lead the world to higher paths, that fear is a 
disease which drains one's strength and smothers one's 
ideals and that nothing is impossible to him who has faith 
and a burning desire to achieve. 

The Leaving Dinner was a great success, thanks 
mainly to Dr. Stratford's kindness in speaking to us. We 
thank him sincerelv. 


The Ladies' Guild 

At the Annual Meeting of the Ladies' Guild held in 
Toronto in May. Mrs. George Kirkpatrick resigned as 
President, and Mrs. E. B. McPherson and Mrs. Hugh 
Heaton as Secretary and Treasurer respectively. The 
School would like to express to these ladies the deep 
appreciation we feel for the devoted services they have 
rendered in so many ways during the past years. We 
have been extremely fortunate to have had such able and 
charming officers in charge of the Guild's affairs, and their 
assistance has been more valuable to the School than 
everyone realizes. They well deserve relief from their 
duties, especially as they are active in so many other 
undertakings, but we shall always remember the generous 
help they have given to T.C.S. 

Donations to the Prize Fund 

The record sum of $755.45 was given by Old Boys and 
Friends of the School for the purchase of prizes this year. 
Books were given as academic prizes, and cups and mugs 
as athletic prizes. The following were among the donors: 

Mrs. Eric L. Harvie, Mrs. H. E. Cawley, The Ladies' 
Guild, G. E. Phipps, N. H. Macaulay, J. W. Thompson, 
Mr. Justice P. H. Gordon, G. B. Strathy, S. B. Saunders,

Bee Hunting 

Senior boys at T.C.S. have often heard of the fascinat- 
ing sport of searching for honey by tracking the wild bees 
to their hive, as it is practiced in some parts of New Eng- 
land. As most of those who listened to the Headmaster's 
story seemed to remain incredulous it is suggested that 
they read the most interesting article on this hobby in the 
July Atlantic Monthly. It is written by Dr. Edgell who 
introduced the Headmaster to the sport. Perhaps there 
will be a Bee Hive Club at T.C.S. before long. 

The Sifton Trophy 

Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Sifton, of Toronto, have given 
a beautiful challenge cup for Cross-Country Skiing. It 
was won for the first time this year by Lewis. 

The Bill Strong Trophy has, until this year, been given 
for Slalom, Downhill and Cross Country, but it was felt 
Cross-Country Skiing should be a separate competition as 
it is in most skiing meets. The School is very grateful to 
Mr. and Mrs. Sifton for their kindness.

In this quiet wilderness 

I have felt 

No harmony, but a little peace, 

A little stillness 

In which to listen 

To what? 

The swallows twitter in the coming dark; 
The wind blows softly into oblivion 
Weaving the strands of my listless hair 
Into a pattern with the trees; 
Within me I have echoed this oblivion. 

Yet sometimes I have woken 
To the sound of trumpets. 
And at times I have spoken 
With the music of comets. 

The sky filled with lightning 
At the advance of the deluge. 
My darkness with dawning 
At the oncoming rain. 

Yet the vision is broken 
And the aftermath, peace, 
Is always 
To listen. 

-C. M. Taylor, VI Sch. 



A ver^' common expression nowadays is, "He has no 
common sense" or "He has a great deal of common sense." 
What is this "common sense" that one hears so much about 
and the meaning of which you and I take for granted? I 
know of no other expression in the English language which 
is used with less regard for accuracy. Perhaps other 
nations have similar phrases and perhaps it has been an 
attribute of mankind since time immemorial but I'm not 
so sure. 

When a boy engages in some silly prank as boys will 
do and breaks his elderly neighbour's two hundred dollar 
multi-coloured window, his father upon whom the tragedy 
falls most heavily, with wrath in his eye and revenge 
clasped firmly in his right hand, swears in no uncertain 
terms that he will lick some horse sense into his fool son 
if it's the last stitch of hard work he ever does. The poor 
man, though loving at heart, is convinced for the time 
being that the child is a complete imbecile. This is not 
true at all. Either the boy did it by accident or he wanted 
to see a big catastrophe or else he just didn't care. None 
of these reasons indicates that he was deprived of reason. 

When a boy with little mechanical aptitude cannot 
fix a single broken thing he is deemed stupid by his more 
practically minded companions and judged to be without 
common sense. Is this true? Not at all. He may be far 
superior to them in abstract imagination and thought but 
who would ever think of calling a person stupid for being 
inferior in that quality. Let us advance to the age of man- 
hood. A choice of two positions lies open to a man. He 
may judge that one is superior and take it. To his 
pecuniary-minded associates he has thrown away a career 
anyone of them would have begged for. "He is senseless". 

Now that it has been shown that common sense is a 
term applied inaccurately to cover a large range of cir- 
cumstances, let us see if we can discover what the real 
meaning is and also whether it is as common as it is made 
out to be. I don't suppose that one man in twenty would 
attribute to Vincent Van Gogh the famous and half crazy 


painter any common sense. Consider also all the other 
famous and high-thinking idealist and imaginative vision- 
aries who have given this world its culture and philosophy 
and all the other achievements of mind and soul that raise 
him from the beast. Probably they were judged crazy 
and without common sense. Any pioneer has to deviate 
from the static society he's in and make new horizons 

If I were asked to give a definition of true common 
sense I believe I would define it thus: "As that quality 
which permits a man to give a truly unbiased and sensible 
opinion and to follow that opinion with suitable action all 
the time without prejudice of any sort". 

You can see for yourself how rare this is. 

— J. D. Ross, VI Sch. 


Along the road walked an old man. The pipe which 
blended into the comer of his mouth emitted a wispy wake 
of smoke which hung motionless in the quiet air. Only his 
slow, definite steps broke the otherwise impenetrable 
silence which seemed to preserve the majesty of the coun- 
try-side. Above the gently sweeping hills to the west the 
setting sun was throwing its last farewell down the long 
soft slopes which reached, far below, to the shining blue 
waters of the ocean. 

Old Captain Prescott was a beloved figure among the 
neighbouring seaside villages. He seemed to have an infinite 
reserve of fresh tales, usually woven around an experience 
of his at sea, with which to captivate his fascinated lis- 
teners. His old navy blue coat and hat, trimmed with gold 
buttons and tattered braiding, had become an integral part 
of the local country-side during the last fifteen years or 
so since the captain had left the sea and its adventure. He 
had married a long time ago and had a son. Only once or 
twice a year did the captain return to his family at Port- 
side. Once the captain had come back to Portside after a 
long stretch at sea, to find his wife had died a few months 
previously and his young boy had disappeared. After a 


few fruitless attempts at tracing his son the captain had 
decided to try to forget, as there was no use in pursuing 
him further. 

But the captain had always hoped that his son would 
remember him by the trinket he had given him when he 
was young — a gold foreign coin with a tragic history. 

The captain had witnessed a tragedy which befell an 
old friend of his in Calcutta during a trip to the East 
Indies. One night in a waterfront tavern his friend, after 
a few drinks, became involved in a quarrel with a big, 
browned Indian. In the heat of the struggle that followed 
the native had caught sight of a large sword. Knocking 
the captain's friend to the floor, the Indian had snatched 
the deadly sword and raised it over his head. For a 
moment the curved blade had remained motionless and 
glittering above the Indian's victim; then it had fallen, 
with the strength of the native behind it, to where his 
victim lay, struggling to rise. 

The Captain bent over the prostrate form of his friend, 
now bathed deep in blood. The blade had struck him 
squarely across the chest. As the Captain was wiping the 
victim's chest he felt something lying in the shirt pocket, 
beside the huge gash. He took it out, wiped it off, and on 
examination found it to be a gold coin. One side of the 
corn had been cleanly cut off by the fatal blow of the sword 
leaving a sector of the round coin. Having given the dead 
man due rites, the Captain pocketed the coin and left. 

This was the coin which the Captain had given his 
son and which his son had always kept with him. Now his 
son was only a memory of years ago. As the old man 
descended the road to the town below, the evening twilight 
was backing away, as the first stars warily appeared. The 
Captain was accustomed to the quiet and beautiful life 
about these little seaside towns. But in spite of his serene 
life he was always a cheerful leader at any festivities, and 
the following morning was to be no exception. 

The town was gaily decorated and all the villagers 
had donned their brightest clothes for today the very 
beautiful, young and well-to-do Lady Brougham was re- 
tunring to her coimty estate in the hills above the towrr. 


She was returning from London, on board a ship of the 
king's navy, where she had recently married a young and 
very gallant officer who was rumoured to be extremely 
handsome and would arrive at the estate at a later date. 
As the trim wars
