Energy, that indefinable essence, drives onward and for- 
ever forward, inexhaustible and unlimited, questioning the 
known and exploring the unknown. It is a striving after 
larger experience. It is progressive. The human body is full 
of energy — energy which must be expressed in some form. 
It must have an outlet, or it stagnates and produces nothing 
but stagnation. 

Is something worthwhile produced by your personal 
energy? Do you ever ask yourself these questions: 

"Am I an asset to anything or anybody? Do I bring 
pleasure to anyone? Just how much pleasure? Do I rely 
on myself?" 


Everyone wants to be worthwhile in his estimation of 
himself because inferiority cannot be endured. Every per- 
son has some defects, and as we expect him to have them, 
so we take into consideration his desire to feel superior in 
one or more respects — not all. 

But is there something one can really feel proud of? 

Look around, there is lots to be done, and kindness is 
the primary pass key. If one has a normal desire to im- 
prove the world, he will tend to do it in a quiet and tactful 
manner rather than by beating his chest and shouting his 
abilities and aims from the roof-tops. 

Psychologists say that a "tough" attitude may come 
from an attempt to cover one's own feeling of inferiority. 
This is quite possible, for a person's convictions regarding 
himself are the powerful factors in his talents and skills, 
or lack of them. 

Again, if one feels he is definitely not "normal," com- 
pared to what he defines as "normal," he is likely to make a 
poor adjustment in his group. He must remember, however, 
that if mankind had always been "normal," we would all 
probably still be living in caves, because the progress of the 
world, according to history, has depended for the most part 
not on "normal" people but the handicapped ones. The reason 
for this is quite obvious — the courageous handicapped per- 
son feels he must overcome his drawback, while the "normal" 
person is satisfied and happy with conditions around him; 
he sees no need for improvement or change. The man of 
little ability who concentrates his efforts m one direction, 
in one shining goal, is bound to succeed; he attains far 
greater heights than the man of brilliant ability who lacks 
a goal. 

Opportunity knocks at every door — it only needs energy 
to direct it. 

— E.A.D. 





On Sunday, September 14, the Reverend Canon J. C. 
Watton, B.A., rector of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, spoke in 
the Chapel. He compared the life of a missionary in the 
northern diocese of Moosonee with the events during a fish- 
ing trip that he had recently made. After a long and arduous 
trip over rough terrain, a large part of which was made on 
foot, the six of them arrived at the shore of a beautiful lake. 
The next day they fished, and Canon Watton pointed out 
that the satisfaction which one felt when a fish was landed 
cancelled out the hardships of the journey and made the 
trip worthwhile. 

Canon Walton then went on to describe a mining town, 
with its rough pioneering population, and how, when at last 
their confidence was won, the supreme satisfaction comes 
as one of the miners approaches, saying, "Padre, will you 
baptize me?" 


In conclusion, the Canon pointed out that, as on a fishing 
trip when there are too few fishing poles, too few ministers 
mean a smaller catch of men for God, and he appealed to 
the boys to consider becoming "fishers of men" by entering 
the ministry as their life work. 


On September 21, the School was privileged to hear an 
address by the Very Reverend R. S. Rayson, Dean of New- 
foimdland. The Dean began his talk by telling us something 
of Newfoundland's early history and the development of its 
church. In 1787, the Dean said, Newfoundland was under 
the diocese of Nova Scotia, which extended from Detroit on 
the west, to Bermuda on the east, with Newfoimdland thrown 
in as an extra. In 1837, Newfoundland became a separate 
island diocese, and the first Bishop was Edward Field, who 
founded Queen's College in St. John's. 

The people of Newfoundland, said the Dean, have not 
yet come to consider themselves Canadians. They also re- 
tain the grand old Scottish custom of having one's eldest 
son enter the ministry. He also gave many examples of 
hardships endured and the bravery of Newfoundland's clergy. 

"When will we learn that a free world has to be a 
Christian World?" asked the Dean. "Clergymen are desper- 
ately needed. Although you will make little money, the 
spiritual reward is great. You cannot feel better when you 
come to the end of life," he concluded, "than when you know 
you have done a share of the world's work, and carried a 
share of the world's burden." 


On Sunday, September 28, we had the pleasure of hear- 
ing our own Chaplain for the first time this term. Canon 
Lawrence's topic was chosen from Psalm XCI, the topic 
being "He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep 
thee in all thy ways." 


He first brought up the point that it is too bad that to- 
day's people have forgotten September 29 as the Festival 
of St. Michael and All Angels. He told how happy he was 
that Trinity College School still called the first term of the 
year "Michaelmas" term instead of merely the "fall" term. 

He next explained how polytheism, in which the Greeks 
believed, provided numerous inferior gods, while the Hebrews 
knew that only one God existed. It seems that the Greeks 
knew nothing about angels, while the Hebrews did. The 
latter had a separate order of spiritual beings described 
as "watchers and holy ones." These were known as angels. 

He then went through the Bible and showed that angels 
were not just an "invention." He did this very convincingly 
by pointing out four different times during a thousand years 
when angels are said to have taken form, "And likewise 
the Divine Son of God sets the example of implicit trust in 
the ancient promises — 'He shall give His angels charge 
over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways'." 


Canon Lawrence gave his second sermon this term on 
October 12, choosing for his theme the similarity of "winds" 
and "spirits." He pointed out that in the Greek language 
there was only one word for the two ideas, which undoubted- 
ly led to the confusion of the early translators. Long before 
Virgil, people expressed respect for the winds. By a strong 
East Wind the Red Sea was turned back and the children of 
Israel escaped from oppression. Such a wind could be nothing 
but the Breath of God. But not every wind is friendly. How 
many a tragedy is implied in the vivid line "Thou breakest 
the ships of Tarshish with an East wind!"? But how often 
have men, discouraged and broken, been reanimated by an 
influence mysterious as a breeze and dynamic as a storm? 

Such a rumour came across the hills of Galilee and 
summoned from their retirement the distressed followers of 
the Nazarene. Beyond doubt He had died, but the wind 


carried an assurance that He was their leader still. "Holy 
Breath" they called it, or "Holy Spirit." The likeness of 
Spirit to wind had been suggested by the Master. The wind 
makes tired men ready to set out anew. And in the realm 
of the Spirit moves the life-giving Breath. By the Spirit of 
God, men, even old men, are reborn! 

In conclusion, the Chaplain said, "In St. Paul's Epistle 
to the Galatians he said, 'Walk in the Spirit.' What is tliat 
but to get out into God's clean atmosphere, turn one's face 
into the refreshing breeze to be enlivened by the life-giving 
influence of Him who said, 'Behold, I make all things new'!" 


OCTOBER 5, 1952 

The fruit, the vegetables and the grain which decorate 
the Sanctuary today are symbols of all we owe to natural 
forces for our life and well being. At this time of year, the 
autunm, we think especially of the harvest, and we give 
thanks that the fields, through a miracle of growth which 
we can only say is God-given, have once again provided food 
for us; in one form or another such festivals have been 
known for many thousands of years, probably ever since 
man appeared in any numbers on the earth. 

In this country few starve, but in other large parts of 
the world, drought and disaster quite often spell starvation 
and slow death to hundreds of thousands. 

At the turn of this century man thought the golden age 
was at hand; he was becoming all powerful through the 
advent of science, the secrets of nature were being unlocked 
and man was controlling his destiny as never before. The 
world was bound to be a place of peace and prosperity, wars 
and calamities were a thing of the past, the Pax Britannica 
would keep nations in order and man himself was becoming 
a God. That seemed to be the comfortable and complacent 
belief of the Victorian age and it carried over into the first 
part of this century. 


The war of 1914-1918 gave a terrible shock to that belief, 
but the forming of the League of Nations and further 
amazing scientific developments made man feel that all the 
sacrifices had been worth while, for war had been abolished 
and the world was safe for democracy and freedom. "With 
man all things are possible," again became the watchword, 
and great material prosperity in the world we knew, streng- 
thened that belief. 

Then came the titanic struggle of 1939-1945 when man 
rose again to offer himself a sacrifice for an ideal, justice 
and freedom. He achieved heights of bravery and devotion, 
and the world spent its life blood on engines of destruction. 
Every scientific skill was employed to discover more efficient 
ways of killing and destroying. 

In 1945 we again rejoiced that the forces of evil had 
been conquered and liberty and justice and right ruled the 
day. A new era had surely dawned, the weaknesses of the 
League of Nations were corrected and a much stronger, 
much more effective world power was formed — the United 
Nations. All the nations would now work together as a team, 
all for one and one for all. 

But somehow things have again not turned out as we 
expected and hoped they would. 

Let us face the facts: to-day there are three wars in 
progress and the great nations of the world are racing again 
to arm themselves to the teeth with the latest and most im- 
proved means of killing and destroying. One half of the 
world seems to be lining up against the other half; millions 
in the East are living in squalor and near starvation while 
other millions in the West waste more in one day than the 
others have to eat in one month. That is nothing new, per- 
haps, but there is a difference now, for the unfortunate 
masses are being told how unfortunate they are, their feel- 
ings are being roused against those who live in comparative 
luxury. Never before have they seen pictures or heard stories 
of the wealth of the West and now they are told that wealth 
came because they were kept in subjection and down-trodden 
by the fortune seekers of the West. 


The old struggle between the haves and have nots is 
being whipped up to white heat, and no Marshal Plan, 
Colombo Plan, Unesco, or United Nations can cure the 
trouble overnight. In a very real way the sins of the fathers 
and grandfathers are being visited on the sons and grand- 

"What a piece of work is man," said Shakespeare, "how 
noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in action how like 
an angel, in apprehension how like a God" — all doubtless 
true, for we have imtold, undiscovered latent abilities, but 
if Shakespeare were living today and had witnessed the 
march of events through this century I am inclined to think 
he would be less enthusiastic about man. What a mass of 
folly is man, he might have said, with one hand he prepares 
the most luxurious dwelling and with the other he makes 
ready to blow it to pieces. He learns the secrets of the 
miiverse but peace and content are strangers to him. He 
knows the whole world but himself he does not know. 

But this is our Harvest Thanksgiving service ; what have 
we to be thankful for? Food, clothing, shelter — yes indeed. 
A prosperous country, friends and a large amoimt of free- 
dom — no doubt about that. 

Our families, our health, our opportunities, the love 
and kindness which surrounds us are all important, all very 

Do not let us, however, be self-satisfied or complacent; 
we live in dangerous times and such times demand courage 
and effort rather than complacency, a searching self-examina- 
tion rather than self-satisfaction. 

And that is what I feel we should give a sincere thanks- 
giving for, the fact that so many of our people are awakening 
from their sleep of selfishness, are realizing that a man's 
life and future consisteth not in the abundance of the things 
which he possesseth, are beginning to see beyond themselves 
to the long horizons of this world, and again beyond those 
horizons to the largely unknown and unseen yet deeply felt 
borders of the world of the spirit. 


"Take the tragedy of life" says a great English writer, 
Katherine Mansfield, "be overwhelmed, make it part of 
life — Pass from personal love to greater love." 

In these last few years it has been borne in on me 
that quietly and unobtrusively more and more people and 
especially yoimg people, are questioning themselves and 
finding themselves wanting, they see many of the ways of 
the world to be false and utterly destructive, and they are 
seeking a new way of life — trying to search out the right 
answer, the truth. "What is truth?" said jesting Pilate, two 
thousand years ago. He did not know it and he had not 
sought it, but the answer stood before him in the form of a 
man who went to the Cross for an ideal. Since then the world 
has recognized the answer was there and has given its own 
decision in the fame it has accorded the two men. 

But has the world taken that Truth to its heart? 

We should indeed take new courage and hope from this 
upsurge of seeking which seems common to all faiths. Criti- 
cal days produce great men and women. To-day those men 
and women are appearing not as stars in the firmament, 
not as great political leaders, or even religious leaders, but 
in small groups all over this Continent and in other parts 
of the world. They are banding together in a common pur- 
pose — to find a better way of life for the world, more real 
friendship, more real understanding. They are reading and 
re-reading the Bible and they are learning that Christianity 
is more than a name, more than a Sunday service — they are 
finding that it is a certain way to salvation, salvation of their 
own lives, salvation of this temporal world, salvation of our 
souls in the world to come. 

Last week there was completed and published the first 
major new Translation of the Bible since the King James* 
version nearly three hundred and fifty years ago. For four- 
teen years a large group of distinguished Biblical scholars 
has worked incessantly on this new version and they have 
brought into their Translation the results of research and 
discoveries over many years. Several million copies will 
most certainly be printed and sold. 


People are turning in larger and larger numbers to this, 
the most influential Book of all time, they are beginning to 
see the error of their ways, the evil that is in the best of us, 
and they are seeking a new way of life everlasting. 

May we in this Chapel throughout this year read, mark, 
learn and inwardly digest the Word of God, the word which 
has turned ordinary men into inspired and noble souls. And 
I hope many of you will develop the habit of reading at least 
a few verses every day, in the quietness of your own rooms 
if possible. 

When the majority of people recapture the fundamental 
verities or truths, then there will be real hope for the peace 
and friendliness of the world. All else is secondary in im- 

"Who will achieve Universal peace?" asked Bernard of 
Clairvaux, a most influential Christian of the Middle Ages. 
And his answer was "the disciplined, the dedicated, the pure 
in heart and the gentle in Spirit." 

May we ever be seekers after the truth, seekers of the 
Kingdom, and in the words of the prayer "may God sow the 
seed of His Word in our hearts that we may bring forth the 
fruits of the Spirit." There will then be cause for real

An Old Boy, who wishes to be anonymous, has sent 
a box of T.C.S. clothing for the use of boys, including a first 
team cricket blazer, first team sweater, etc. 

The Rev. T. F. Summerhayes of Toronto has sent the 
School a Greek Grammar published in 1793 and once used 
at Westminster School, London. T.C.S. was affiliated with 
Westminster School in 1914 and it was then we adopted the 
old Westminster custom of scrambling for the pancake on 
Shrove Tuesday. All the notes in the Greek Grammar are 
in Latin. 


This year the Art Club has got away to a quick start. 
With Roe as President, Bingham as Vice-President, Molson 
as arranger of club activities, Wilson as Treasurer and Ruddy 
as Custodian, the executive has already begun its work for 
the year. The actual membership appears to be very limited, 
with only fifteen members accepted. Several organized 
sketching trips in the country, improvements on the Art 


room and Museum, together with weekly meetings at some 
of which films will be shown highlight the year's extensive 
programme. Apart from the executive, this year's members 
are: Anstis, Ferrie, Hayes, Lash, Leech, Martin, Moore, 
Osier, Price, and Trickett. 

"The West Wind," a film depicting the life of Tom 
Thomson as an artist, was recently shown to the School in 
the old chapel. This was the Art Club's undertaking, and 
it was a great success. In a most unique and appealing 
manner the great painter's life was described; the colours 
were striking, and a large niunber of Thomson's paintings 
were shown. One was able to get a good idea of the life he 
led and of the extremely beautiful country in which he 
painted his greatest canvases. The School is deeply indebted 
to the Art Club and their Director, Mr. Key, for making 
the showing of the film possible. 


Because of the warm weather this fall, it was decided 
to hold the New Boys' Picnic on a beach by the lake. The 
location turned out to be excellent, and everyone enjoyed a 
swim soon after arriving. Before dinner there was a game 
of touch football which whetted everyone's appetite for the 
meal of corn and sausages, cooked to perfection by the Head- 
master and Mr. Dening. 

In the afternoon there was a baseball game between 
the rival Houses, from which Brent emerged the victor 
despite a driving home run for Bethune by the Head. 

Another swim brought the day to a close, and every- 
one agreed that in location, and in the enjoyment had by 
all, this picnic had a definite edge over any one in former 
years. Many thanks are due to the Masters, boys, and all 
concerned for making the outing such an outstanding success. 



The School extends its best wishes to Edwin Nash, a 
familiar figure around the buildings and grounds, who is re- 
turning to England for the first time since the beginning 
of World War Two. 

Edwin sails from Quebec on November 15 aboard the 
Cunard liner Samaria. From Southampton, where the ship 
docks, he will travel to Hampshire to visit his brother, 
Herbert Nash of Chilworth, and his two sisters. Misses 
Catherine and Edith Nash, both of Foyle. He will be in Eng- 
land for twenty-nine days and away from the School for six 

Edwin has been at T.C.S. for thirty- two years. He 
originally came to this country in 1920 from England, and 
worked under Dr. Orchard. Later he was made superin- 
tendent and has kept that position to the present day. 


Since the last issue of these notes appeared in the 
"Record" we have received further useful donations of books 
to the Library, and we acknowledge these gifts with pleasiu-e 
and thanks. 

Mr. C. M. A. Strathy presented, through the Toronto 
branch of the Ladies' Guild, a useful and varied collection 
of 40 books; Mrs. E. A. Hethrington's previous donation 
was used to buy a complete Wordsworth, the Canadian 
Oxford Atlas, and the latest volume (vi) of the Oxford 
Junior Encyclopaedia, bringing to a total of 42 the number 
of reference books bought with this and Miss N. S. Heth- 
rington's donation. Our reference section is now very well 
equipped and in constant use. Dr. Graham Ross has again 
helped us most generously. 

Other donations of books have come from the follow- 

Miss Braucht — The Mind in the Making (Robinson). 


Dr. J. F. G. Lee — The Nigger of the Narcissus (Conrad). 

Canadian Industries Ltd.— C.I.L. Oval 1948-1951. 

Mr. P. H. Lewis — Count Belisarius (Robert Graves) ; African 

Journey (Siegfried). 
J. W. Durnford — Mr. Midshipman Easy (Maryat) ; Windsor

I Walked Alone (Earl of Cardigan). 
A. R. Williams — River of the Sun (Ullman) ; The Wanderer 

Michael Higgins — Greenmantle (Buchan) ; Bruce (Terhune) ; 

Book of Marvels (Halliburton) ; Canadian Army 

Jeremy Hulse — It's Fun to Make it Yourself. 

Looking over the Stack Room records for the past three 
years we find that an average of one new or replacement 
book has been added to the Library every two days over 
the school year and our shelf capacity is becoming limited. 
The proposed new Library which will occupy the Old Chapel 
below the Dining Hall will bring relief from this problem 
of space, and it is understood that very definite plans are 
now being laid for this new Library. 

It is gratifying to observe the steadily increasing in- 
terest shown by the School in reading and use of the Library. 
Apart from the density of traffic in the Reading Room the 
records show an increase of 56 percent in the number of 
books borrowed during the first month of this term. 

In view of the number of applicants for posts as 
Librarians the number of these taken "on strength" this 
year has been doubled. We now have two very efiicient 
teams of four, working alternate weeks, each team headed 
by a Senior Librarian. We are sorry to have had to dis- 
appoint some applicants and hope that they may be taken 
on another year. 

Early in July the Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum visited 
the Archbishop of Moosonee and Mrs. Renison, travelling 
with them to Moose Factory, The Headmaster spoke in St. 
Thomas* Church at a service largely attended by Indians. 


The weather at the beginning of term was the hottest 
and most humid most of us ever remember in September. 

During the summer the tennis courts were resurfaced 
and the Ewart Osborne court was almost entirely rebuilt. 

Boys are again occupying the overflow quarters in the 
Lodge and the Hospital; there are 261 boys in the School 
this year. Fifty-one boys are sons, grandsons, or great 
grandsons of Old Boys. 

New refrigeration equipment has been installed in the 

The first wedding in the Memorial Chapel took place 
on August 23 when Miss Mary McDerment, daughter of the 
School Doctor and Mrs. McDerment, was married to Gordon 
Payne ('40-'47). Everyone agreed that it was a beautiful 
setting for a wedding and the floral decorations were arrang- 
ed most attractively. As the couple were leaving the Chapel, 
all the School bells were pealed, the Chapel bell, the Tower 
bell and the Junior School bell. 

Mr. and Mrs. Parkins have left to return to British 
Columbia and Mrs. Roche is now in charge of the Tuck ; she 
has already made herself popular with the boys by her kindly 
interest in them. 

The town is planning to annex all the property from 
the present eastern boundary at the park to Gage's Creek 
and north to the Old Canadian Northern tracks. It is ex- 
pected that a number of factories will be built south of the 
C.P.R. tracks and the rest of the land will be eventually used 
for a housing development. It will not enhance the beauty 
of the countryside near the School. 


In August there was an article in a Toronto paper about 
the flight to Iceland made by a transport, and attention was 
drawn to the two T.C.S. representatives, Eric Jackman and 
Ivlr. Robertson-Fortay. They had a most interesting adven- 
ture there exploring the ice cap and Mount Hekla, an active 
volcano, with the British Public Schools' Exploration Society. 

The T.C.S. Hockey Team has been invited to participate 
in the Lawrenceville School Annual Invitation Hockey 
Tournament in the Baker Rink at Princeton University 
next January. There will be eight schools competing, And- 
over, Belmont Hill, Exeter, Lawrenceville, Nichols, Noble 
and Greenough, Deerfield and Trinity College School, and 
the games will be played from January 1st to 3rd, 1953. 
Last year the tournament was an excellent one, the finalists 
being Noble and Greenough and Belmont Hill, with the latter 
school winning out. We feel it is a distinct honour to be in- 
vited to take part in this unique tournament in such a lovely 


The School sends its most sincere congratulations to 
Lt.-Colonel and Mrs. J. Ewart Osborne of Toronto who 
celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary on October 1st, 
and to Dr. and Mrs. W. E. Tucker of Bermuda who cele- 
brated their fiftieth wedding anniversary in July. Colonel 
Osborne was at T.C.S. from 1892 to 1895 and he has been a 
Governor for many years; Dr. Tucker was at T.C.S. from 
1887 to 1891 and he has long been one of the leading citi- 
zens of Bermuda. 

Mr. Jutice R. M. Dennistoun and Mrs. Dennistoun of 
Winnipeg marked their sixtieth wedding anniversary on 
September 5th. Unfortunately Judge Dennistoun was in 
hospital at the time, but they received congratulations from 


all parts of the world. We are now deeply saddened to hear 
of Judge Dennistoim's death. 

Dr. W. E. Tucker ('87-'91) and Mrs. Tucker celebrated 
their golden wedding anniversary in July at their home, 
Stancombe, Bermuda. Dr. Tucker is one of T.C.S.'s older 
Old Boys and many remember his athletic career — he was 
captain of the Cambridge University rugby team and played 
three times for England in international rugger matches. 
It was in 1902 that Dr. Tucker began practice in Bermuda. 


R. J. Anderson, last year's Head Boy, has won the Pat 
Strathy Memorial Scholarship in Mathematics and Science 
at Trinity College, the Burnside Scholarship in Mathematics 
and Science at Trinity, and the Professor William Jones 
Scholarship in Mathematics at Trinity. He has not taken up 
the Pat Strathy Memorial Scholarship. 

H. D. B. Clark won the Rev. F. A. Bethune Scholarship 
at Trinity. 

H. G. Watts won a scholarship-bursary award at Prince- 

A. O. Hendrie won the Richardson Memorial Scholar- 
ship at Queen's. 

The School sincerely congratulates these boys on win- 
ning these awards. 


The results last June were as follows: 

Candidates 34 

Papers attempted 294 

Papers passed 233 

Percentage of passes 79.3 

Percentage of failures 20.7 


1st class honours 48 

% 16.3 

2nd class honours 47 

Vc 16 

3rd class honours 43 

% 14.6 

Credits 95 

% 32.3 

Total honours 138 

% 46.9 

This was the lowest percentage of passes since 1945 
and the lowest percentage of honours since 1942. The Eng- 
lish Literature and French Composition papers were given 
the poorest standing; they were written just before and 
just after Speech Day and the general tension may have 
affected the candidates. But there were too many failures 
or credits in nearly all the other subjects and the reason is 
yet to be found. It seems true that most other schools had 
results somewhat similar, but that does not explain the sud- 
den drop at T.C.S. There is certainly something wrong when 
a first rate scholar is given a third in English Literature, 
and another top French student gets seconds. We are making 
a thorough investigation into all our work and we shall hope 
for much better results next spring. 

There is a brighter side to the picture; one-third of all 
the failures were suffered by three boys who insisted on 
attempting more subjects than they were capable of doing. 
Only one paper was failed by the top half of the Sixth Form. 
"A" classes in Algebra, Chemistry and History obtained all 
firsts except two credits in Algebra, two seconds and one 
third in Chemistry. 

There is a growing feeling that the Upper School 
examinations, as at present constituted, are far too much 
of a gamble. One year a paper is very easy and most candi- 
dates obtain firsts; the next year the paper in the same 
subject is far too difficult and most people fail or obtain 
credits. The type of question in nearly all papers puts too

much of a premium on memorization and does not give 
sufficient opportunity for original thought and critical judg- 
ment; when there is a chance for a candidate to think for 
himself, the time allowed for the question is far too brief, 
usually ten or fifteen minutes. 

We should also like to be assured that candidates of 
exceptional ability are recognized by the examiners.

Here you are, you lucky people, the October arrange- 
ment of the "Grapevine." First of all, we are happy to an- 
nounce the formation of the PRO Club, which is ably assist- 
ing distressed members of the School. The Public Romance 
Org., jointly affiliated with Emily Post and Dorothy Dix, 
under the management of MOO and POO, has already 
solved such problems as the STRAGGLEY AFFAIR, the 
enrolment increases with every mail delivery, and the club 
is now well occupied with OPERATION HAMBONE. Secretly 
connected with the PRO club is the case of the bottom flat 
footsteps which has struck discord in the study hour. A 
request for better harmony, however, has been submitted 


by the mysterious floorwalker whose destination puzzles 
some of us. 

While we are on the subject of music we understand a 
certain top flat has taken on the role of Tin Pan Alley, add- 
ing new lyrics to the current song "You Belong Me," how- 
ever, we conclude that the tune obviously lacks beat. 

A recent movie leave had as drastic results on the T.C.S. 
underworld as the lack of it, as TOMBSTONE TONY, BIRD- 
DOG DOUG and FEARLESS PAGAN went into action. 
Now that EEYORE and BLACKY and IKE and PETE have 
broken up, we hope that we all can have a little peace. The 
cry goes up that because of lack of recent jet-plane crashes 
the T.C.S. wreckers' association has returned to other fields. 
At a recent reckoning they were found to be in the hole to 
an extent sufficient to cause their dissolution. The scent of 
BILL JENKIN'S last letter from a friend best known to 
himself has drawn much favourable comment and we are 
all looking forward to the next one. SPICER'S galavanting 
on the roof of the lodge is due, he would like us to know, 
solely to his love of the sun and not a desire for a better 
view of a certain section in the rear of the School, but as 
for the closing of his lines of retreat, well, it has happened 
to the best of generals (hasn't it, Ike?) The spark in the 
football team this year is due to BRUN'S picking his holes 
and STANLEY'S mail carrying and we wish to say that if 
they look before they leap, the championship should be in 
the bag. We hear that the 8.30 rush is as much for the 
Bigside tray as for the phone; however, FAGAN usually 
wins by a nose. 

So we bring to a close this exciting, fascinating and 
educative Grapevine, and we trust that the School will con- 
tinue in its enterprising arrangements of dorm-raids, tres- 
passing, etc., all of which we can inform you about in our 



There is a rumour in existence concerning Hollj^wood's 
recent plans to engage certain occupants of this House for 
production of a unique movie. It was but a few days ago 
that a Housemaster and a movie producer discussed the final 
arrangements. Any day now, the lucky persons may be 
called on to "do their stuff," and consequently some rather 
odd spectacles have been seen lately by inquisitive occupants 
of Bethune. 

One poor individual swears he saw John Seagram call- 
ing signals from the Chapel tower, and, speaking of football, 
another saw Don Colbourne catching passes on horseback 
by the lake. Even Mr. Scott is co-operating by chalking his 
billiard cues more than ever, and making his "Midnight 
Parades" far more frequent. Mather's adaptation of Churchill 
might even imply insanity to the uninformed. As for "Zeke," 
he doesn't find it hard to act the part of a western rancher. 
There is one part in the story when "Zeke" dies, and to cheer 
things up, the Ryley Brothers sing a Dixie Duet at the 
funeral. Righteous Roy, the parish curate, appeals to 
"Bishop" Luxton, and the soloists are requested to change 
their song to "Good Old Mountain Dew," since the other 
was sacrilegious! The part of two Fiendish Scientists was 
about to be played by Cran and Polak, but they never at- 
tended rehearsals since in the one cast the screen was not 
big enough to take him all in. By the way, "Decade Doug" 
Willoughby, entering his tenth year at the School, high- 
Jights the side show together with Chuck Scott who recently 
tipped the scales at Four Hundred pounds. Nellie Cartwright 
and Davison have also been to see "Doc" Montemurro re- 
cently, complaining of sore wing joints. They were told to 


carry less equipment when bird watching. Mr. Willmer and 
Kit Cowan were seen at two a.m. the other morning prancing 
around the soccer field — incredible, isn't it? Those mentioned 
will definitely play leading roles in the movie, and many 
thanks go to John Hierlihy for his co-operation in helping 
film the production. 

Bethune, "getting wind" of the Project and, as usual 
backed by Brent's originality, recently applied to M.G.M. 
for a film contract. The result was extremely comical. To 
quote the president of the film industry — "One of your pro- 
ductions would not only baffle the public, but would unneces- 
sarily overcrowd our hospitals." Meanwhile, the world is 
waiting to see Brent's talented efforts combined in this 
thrilling, exotic and captivating movie of the romantic ad- 
venturous life in a Boarding School. 


We are tired of publishing successive comments on 
Bethune's superiority over Brent. Be it so — then let it be. 
For the benefit of New Boys, no doubt by now well versed 
in the subtle propaganda of both Houses, there is in exist- 
ence at this School an unusual state of "cold war," which 
breaks out at times into an alarming form of combat, known 
as the Housematch ; this disturbing state of unrest is known 
generally as house rivalry. Time will, we are sure, once 
more reveal the outcome of this chaos — in the meantime, 
with an eye to the future, could we perhaps take the liberty 
of recommending morphine to Brent House? May I quote 
another when I say "it is a handy thing to know." 

It is now seven weeks since our trunks and suitcases 
disappeared from the flats, where to, only Edwin knows. If 
anyone is suddenly carried away by a desire to leave, be 
sobered by this thought — you will have to take your be- 
longings with you in a paper bag. Surely this is below our 
dignity ? It has been raining lately too, the fates are against 


We have lost one of our "masters in residence" — It is 
rumoured that he became tired of being a "gentleman in 
Vvaiting" — we always seemed to be so abominably late in 
going to bed last year. His quarters are now occupied by 
a waistcoat, a watch fob, and a pipe, — occasionally a deep 
voice is heard issuing from the vicinity of these articles; a 
small sign on the door reads "Mr. Scott." Sir, welcome to 
this abode of neverlasting tranquillity! 

Once again this year we have a colonial empire. It is 
extremely fortunate that we do not have to share these pos- 
sessions with Brent, but realize that many people in Brent 
should be in the hospital — upstairs, of course! This is a 
wonderful, democratic system we live under. I once saw a 
sign reading "No credit given to anyone under eighty years 
of age." That in a nutshell is how many privileges should 
be given to Brent, and even then sparingly. One can never 
be too certain .... 

Now in closing, may we fling a challenge, "a bold defi- 
ance," in the collective teeth of Brent House? Gather to- 
gether a team, notice we flatter you, a team, and meet our 
chosen representatives on a field, any field, ploughed ones 
excepted, in a game of rugger. And so back to chaos and 
cold war — we have thrown down our gauntlet. 






Mr. Marigold was born in Toronto, and after attending 
Riverdale Collegiate, entered the University of Toronto. He 
took a keen interest in water-polo, squash, tennis and badmin- 
ton. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Modern 
Languages at Varsity, he went on to his Master of Arts in 
German at Ohio State University, in Columbus. Here he 
was organist and choirmaster of the Lutheran Church, and 
conducted a series of radio broadcasts. In the same year 
that he earned his M.A. he was teaching German at Ohio 
State, and then went on to lecture at the University of 
Western Ontario. Mr. Marigold then travelled to Munich, 
Germany, to take a one year postgraduate course in German, 
at the end of which he returned to Toronto to take further 
postgraduate work leading to a Ph.D. 

Mr. Marigold joined us this fall, and is teaching French 
and Latin. He can be seen almost any afternoon on the 
tennis courts challenging one of the masters or boys. He 
is also carrying on the work of organist and choirmaster at 
St. Mark's church in Port Hope. He is assistant House- 
master in Trinity House, and we wish him the best of luck 
in all his work at T.C.S., and hope that his stay will be a 
long and pleasant one. 



Mr. Scott was born in Hamilton, Ontario, His back- 
ground is a most interesting one, especially since he began 
his colourful career by first attending Hillfield School in 
Hamilton and then Ridley College in St. Catharines. He was 
at Ridley from 1937 to 1943 during which time he played 
football, hockey and squash and was also an outstanding 
student. But he will always be remembered there for his 
acting. Having leading roles in such plays as "The House- 
master" and "Ba Ba Black Sheep," he made a great contri- 
bution to the Ridley Dramatic Society through his portrayal 
of character. Before he left he was a House Prefect. In the fall 
of 1943 he went to the University of Toronto and three 
months later joined the R.N.V.R. as a pilot in the Fleet Air 
Arm. After the war he returned to University, and in 1949 
graduated with his Degree in History and an excellent 
record with the Trinity College Dramatic Society, and the 
Kappa Alpha Society, of which he was Vice-President. 
Athletically, he played football, hockey, and water-polo, and 
was captain of the latter for three years. He then taught at 
Appleby College for one year, coaching the football and cric- 
ket teams. In the fall of 1950, he entered Em.manuel College, 
Cambridge, and two years later received his Degree in both 
History and English. During this time he was very keen on 
rowing and was on the first hockey team. He also made 
numerous visits to Italy and Yugoslavia where he spent his 
holidays. Last June he left Cambridge and came to us in 
September after three months in Europe. This year he is 
teaching English, History, and Geography. He carries on 
his Dramatic career as director of our club at T.C.S. We 
are all very glad to have Mr. Scott with us. 


Mr. Willmer was born in London in 1926, and spent 
most of his school years at the Sir George Monoux School. 
From there he went to Edinburgh University for a six 


months training course with the Royal Marines, at the con- 
clusion of which he transferred to the British Army. He 
served in the Infantry, doing educational work for three 
years, mainly in Egypt and the Middle East, and subsequently 
travelled extensively throughout European countries. He 
returned to civilian life in 1947 with the rank of Captain. 

The next four years were spent at Edinburgh University 
where Mr. Willmer obtained a Master's degree in Geography, 
and played soccer, cricket, and club rugby. From there he 
went to Oxford and read for a Diploma in education. 

In the summer of 1951 he made his first visit to Canada 
by way of a grain boat to Churchill, and made his way back 
to England via Ontario, Montreal, and Quebec. Mr. Willmer 
came to us in 1952 and is now teaching Geography and 
Mathematics to the middle forms. In the afternoons he is 
busy coaching the Bigside and Middleside soccer teams, and 
in addition to his great interest in sports, he is also en- 
thusiastic about films and the theatre. 

It seems evident, however, that Mr. Willmer finds it 
difficult to get accustomed to two things at T.C.S. : first, 
the large roasts that we have on Wednesdays and Sundays; 
perhaps it is because he has had little practice in carving, 
having come from England; and second, the fact that of 
the other new masters, one comes from the "Other Place," 
namely, Cambridge. 

We all give Mr. Willmer a sincere welcome to T.C.S. 
and hope that his stay may be a long and happy one.

In the smoker of the Caribou Express, running between 
Poii: aux Basques and St. John's, Newfoundland, Mrs. Spikey 
witnessed a spectacle which was not uncommon. Bonspiel, 
a brawny lumberjack, passed a whiskey bottle across the 
aisle. It was received with great gusto; was tilted back to 
meet a pair of lips. The level now considerably lowered, 
the bottle made its round over the backs of the seats from 
person to person. 

When it returned to Bonspiel it was half empty. The 
lumberjack spat, took a long draw on the end and cached 
the bottle on the window sill. At that instant the train 
lurched forward throwing the bottle off the sill. Napoleon 
and Robespierre, who had been eyeing it from the seat behind 
made a lunge at the bottle as it fell. Bonspiel leaned for- 
ward to protect it. Consequently the three men tumbled in- 
to the aisle, their feet narrowly missing the light fixtures. 
To their disgust the container had landed on its side and 
was spilling its strong smelling liquid over the floor. 

At the opposite end of the smoker from the three lum- 
berjacks a corpulent individual was playing hill-billy tunes 
on an accordion. As the tempo of the accordion grew faster, 
the noise became louder and the smoke thicker. A few New- 
foundlanders stood up and danced to the rhythmic but tune- 
less music, while others beat the floor with their boots. All 


the while the train sped onward from late afternoon into 
the night. 

Mrs. Spikey sat back in her seat and attempted to 
stretch her cramped legs. Her five-year-old son blinked his 
eyes and looked at her earnestly. At that time the large 
bulk of Mr. Myrrel, returning from the washroom, appeared 
from the smoker. His feet looked like elongated snow shoes 
or possibly small skis. He walked with a stiff awkward 
motion as if each step pained him. The large man shut the 
door to the smoker; almost everyone sighed and lowered 
the backs of their seats, as the music and singing suddenly 
grew very faint. 

His seat was across the aisle from Mrs. Spikey. He said, 
"Is the train always this crowded?" 

She smiled. "It nearly always is," she replied. She 
watched him for a few minutes as he fumbled in his over- 
coat pocket and finally produced a pocket book. He looked 
like a business man — some one who spent every day at a 
desk. She could tell by his accent that he was not a New- 
foundlander. She decided that he was probably from Hali- 

Mr. M5n:'rel, in turn, was thinking of her. When he saw 
that she had turned away, he glanced in her direction. The 
boy next to her looked at him, gave him an absolutely blank 
look and raised his eyebrows. Her son, he thought, looked 
like Donald Duck. Yes! a very close resemblance. He turned 
away; eventually his eyes wandered back to his book; he 
began to read. 

"Is not this an uncommonly long stop?" Mr. Myrrel 
asked some time later. 

"It's Bishop's Falls," she said, "They always stop here 
for ten minutes. There's a bar at the station. Most of the 
men get off here to have a drink." 

He nodded. He looked at his watch and discovered that 
it was past midnight. He cursed the Newfoundland trains — 
those narrow-gauged rails and the wild parties at night on 
the smoker. 


He suddenly noticed something very peculiar. People 
began to shuffle out of the coach and gather in silent groups 
outside. Some returned to talk in low voices and whispers. 
Mr. Myrrel's curiosity grew overpowering. He stood up 
and lumbered outside to the others. 

Now Mrs. Spikey and her son were the only ones who 
had not, at one time or another, left the coach. St. John's, 
she thought, was still far away. This delay meant that they 
would not reach the city until ten forty-five the next morn- 
ing. She longed to see the familiar English type chimney 
pots, the old wooden houses on the hillside and the sight of 
the deep green harbour. 

The three lumber-jacks staggered through the coach on 
their way to the smoker. They seemed more sober than 
before. She caught the word "accident." What had hap- 

"Ran some one over," a voice said. The man's face was 
white, his hands trembled. "Saw an arm several yards away. 
I wouldn't go out if I were you. His body's under the plat- 
form between this car and the next, just as you step out 
the door. 

"Who ran over? Who ran over? Eh, mommy who ran 
over?" The man had forgotten the boy. 

"No one was run over," said Mrs. Spikey. "It was only 
a dog, only a little dog." 

Several minutes later the train pulled away from 
Bishop's Falls. Mr. Myrrel had forgotten to close the door 
to the smoker. The lumber- jacks had obtained another 
bottle; the noise of the accordion suddenly began again; 
feet began to beat the floor in time to the tempo and smoke, 
which had escaped during the stop, began to collect around 
the light fixtures and drift slowly downwards over the

Where westward blows the gentle wind, 
Where grow the stands of regal pine: 
Where shapely fir and rugged spruce 
Climb upward from the virgin soil: 
Where lakes of crystal beauty lie 
Cupped among the rolling hills: 
Where rivers race toward the sea 
From distant, ragged mountain peaks: 
There kings of all the river fish 
Rise swiftly, surely to the fly, 
Flashing brightly, splashing lightly. 
Glistening rainbows in the sun. 
There's beauty wrought in every limb, 
In every branch, in every tree, 
And with the night fresh beauty comes 
On sparkling paths across the lakes. 
With herons on their moonlight flights 
High above the sleeping north.

The speaker reached the end of his address on Patriotism. 
"So, my friends, we must all do our part in destroying this 
evil doctrine which creeps upon us. Already its tentacles are 
WTapped about our government. The people who spread 
this doctrine must be stopped at any cost, by force if neces- 
sary, so that our young and innocent may not fall victim 
to their lies. Already many of their ringleaders have been 
imprisoned, but this is not enough. We must silence all 
those who believe in these absurd lies, those who seek to 
stir up the people against our excellent way of life under 
the false banners of liberalism and progress. These people 
are a great threat to our security today. It is your duty as 
citizens to stop these subversive elements which jeopardize 
our freedom. We may, I trust, live to see the day when these 


traitors are all behind bars. But, the task requires the 
utmost vigilence, and everyone must do his part." 

This is a rather extreme example of the prevalent feel- 
ing among our southern neighbours today. An atmosphere 
of fear and suspicion is being created which may well bring 
about the end of democracy. Acts are being passed by which 
anyone who sympathizes or agrees with Communism may 
be investigated and dismissed from a job without a chance 
to defend himself. When the accused is allowed to face his 
persecutors, justice is reversed in that he must prove him- 
self innocent or be assumed guilty. Guilty of what? Is it 
unlawful in a supposedly free country for a man to hold ideas 
of his own choosing provided these do not cause physical 
violence against law and order ? If our way of life is superior 
to others surely it will stand up against all criticisms that 
opponents may throw at it. But by silencing those opponents, 
obnoxious as their views may be, we flatter them by fol- 
lowing the tactics of the dictatorship they support. Through 
such measures we may yet, while resisting dictatorship from 
without, succumb to it from within.

I don't know whether I ever told you the tale of Moham- 
med Singh, but anyway, though short, it's quite a worth- 
while story. 

Singh was my gun-boy years ago — he was fairly good, 
though at times he seemed to do the most extraordinary 
things — quite upsetting to the hunt, you know. As a mat- 
ter of fact I lost several fine specimens through his tom- 
foolery — dashed annoying. 

It must have been the beginning of the rainy season 
that I arranged to have a go at the game in the Caroni 
Swamp, and old J-P agreed to come. We set off from his 
estate at dawn, and even then the roads were crowded with 
natives and their carts drawn by water buffalo, on their 


way to Port-of-Spain with local market produce. However, 
once we reached the San Juan road, the traffic became less 
frequent and the old Ford took pimishment as we sped down 
the valley. It's incredible that Trinidad, for all that it has 
the Pitch Lake, seems to have some of the worst roads in 
the West Indies — somewhat notable, I've always thought. 

When we arrived, Singh was already there with the 
boatman, an East Indian liberally crossed with Negro, who 
informed us that the boat was ready. Accordingly we set 
off down the San Juan river, and after a tortuous passage 
through the omnipresent mangroves, emerged in the Caroni 
Channel. It wasn't long before we found some alligators 
on a mud bank, and old J-P shot a small one. He told Singh 
to go and skin it. The noise of the shot must have sent up 
nearly all the wild-fowl in the area, and a startled scarlet 
ibis rose out of the mangroves nearby. Singh, good fellow, 
handed me my twelve bore just in time and I shot him at 
almost maximum range. The scarlet bird plummeted into 
the bush. 

"By Jove! That's unfortunate — I did rather want to 
have the thing stuffed. It would have looked quite good, 
don't you think." 

"I daresay Singh could get it — Singh! Take this cut- 
lass and hack through to retrieve that bird ..." 

"Yes— Good idea! We'll wait here." 

So we waited. Singh soon disappeared from view, 
climbing painfully through the tangled vegetation, pausing 
occasionally to cut down an obstructing limb. The boat- 
man took the spark plugs out from the motor and began to 
clean them. 

We were just on the second round of rum punches when 
a voice, unmistakably Singh's screamed from the shore. 

"Sahib! Bring gim, save me! A majahuel!" 

"Good Lord, a snake! Poor fellow, I suppose we had 
better go. Take the .455, you'll never be able to carry a rifle 
through that tangle." 


Hardly had we left the boat and jumped onto the thick, 
black mud, when Singh called out that he was alright — he 
had killed the majahuel. 

Several minutes later he re-appeared labouring heavily, 
dragging an awkward object through the mangroves. Sud- 
denly he broke through onto the mudflat, pulling behind 
him a nineteen foot anaconda. 

How he killed it I'll never know, but there it was, and 
he skinned it on the flat. Then, rolling up his trophy, he 
prepared to enter the boat when J-P barked. 

"Singh! The bird!" 

His only answer was to step back and slit open the 
stomach of the creature. Inside was a queer mess of red 
feathers — the ibis! 

It all goes to show that you can't trust these natives 
further than you can see them — they can't even retrieve a 
dead bird without losing it!

Here in front of me lay the third largest nation of the 
world, its vastness contracted and its life dehydrated. 
Canada packed into a file. No, it wasn't a series of maps 
showing nothing but bare outlines, it was something that 
showed everything the way it was, the deepest forest, the 
liighest mountain and the busiest city, all to be seen at a 
moment's notice. This was all made possible by one of 
science's greatest contributions to man — photography. 

This great wealth of country, set down on paper by 
man's modern method of exploration, was completed just 
recently by the photo survey section of the R.C.A.F. The 
R.C.A.F.'s job of photographing Canada from the air started 
in 1921, and that year 280 square miles were covered. By 
1935 the figure had risen to 109,000 square miles, and then 
dropped to nearly nothing during the war. In 1945, how- 
ever, it shot up to 242,000 and the 1948 season stands as 


an alltime record, when R.C.A.F. foto crews returned to 
Rockcliffe with 911,000 square miles having been photo- 
graphed during the season. By the end of summer 1950 the 
Arctic island area had been covered to complete the initial 

Each spring, detachments using Lan casters, Norsemen 
and Cansos, carrying their own ground crew, have taken off 
from Rockcliffe to their specific areas not to return until 
the end of the season in the fall of the year. The most recent 
development in the aid of aerial photography has been the 
use of SHORAN, the radar system of pin pointing ground 
positions over which the aerial photographs have been taken. 
This use of SHORAN, which was used as a bombing device 
during the war, is considered by Air Force officials to be a 
major step in aviation in Canada. The two types of aerial 
photography in use are the tri-camera system, which allov/s 
large coverage, and the vertical system, which gives more 
detail although it is much slower. A considerable area must 
still be covered by the vertical system but the days of the 
large scale photo surveys are over and almost every bit of 
Canada is now covered on aerial film, by one or both of the 
two systems in use. 

In addition to providing the basis to both civil and mili- 
tary maps of unsurveyed territory, the Air Force's aerial 
photos serve many other purposes, and have aided in de- 
veloping Canada's natural resources and pushing back the 
northern frontiers. Scores of thousands of photographs are 
sold each year by the Air Force to commercial agencies such 
as oil and mining companies and lumbering firms. They 
are also used in numerous ways by the federal and provin- 
cial governments. 

Although only one type of many varieties of photo- 
graphy, I feel it only fitting to consider aerial photography 
one of the pioneers of Canada as well as the men of the 
R.C.A.F. who aimed their lenses, as Columbus aimed his 
ships, at the ever widening horizon of progress.

A bold, reckless marauder, that is the Prairie Falcon. 
Superior in appearance to its close relative, the famous Pere- 
grine, this bird is one of the most beautiful of the western 
hawks, to be surpassed only by the tiny Sparrow Hawk. 
The Prairie Falcon is similar in many respects to the East- 
em Peregrine, or Duck Hawk, It is the same size, has the 
same general silhouette, and has very much the same speed. 
In fact, but for the colour, the two might be considered the 
same bird. 

The Prairie Falcon is a magnificent bird. It is sohdly 
built with a fairly long, square tail. The general body colour 
is sandy, rather like the back of a Killdeer. This is in con- 
trast with the white breast which has a few black spots. 
The facial pattern is also quite contrasting: — the white chin 
is bordered by a thin black "moustache". The eyes are black, 
also in contrast with the general sandy tone of the head. In 
flight the dark Auxillars and under-tail coverts lend quite 
a striking appearance. 

This falcon's flight, deep, swift beats of the narrow 
pointed wings, gives an impression of power and speed to 
the observer. Nor is this wrong, for the large falcons are 
the swiftest birds in the world, and are more powerful for 
their size than any other bird on earth. The Peregrine has 
been known to attain a speed of more than one hundred 
and eighty miles per hour during a swoop. Just imagine 
being hit by four pounds of falcon, surmounted by claws 
of steel, travelling at nearly two hundred miles an hour! 

I have seen the Prairie Falcon only once in my life. This 
summer, while in the heart of the west I saw one. I was 
walking up a hill with two friends when out of the blue 
came a fawn-coloured thunderbolt. Without once opening 
its wings it came tearing down from the top of the hill, a 
distance of more than a quarter of a mile, and, having passed 
within twenty feet of us, went on to kill its prey a hundred 
yards away in the grass. Taking note of where it had landed. 


I ran towards the spot. About twenty-five yards away from 
it I was stopped by a fence. Just as I was about to cross, 
I saw two pointed wingtips lift from the grass, so I ducked 
as fast as I could. To my amazement, the bird, holding a 
small striped gopher in its talons, landed on a fence post 
not thirty feet from me. Thus I got an extremely good look 
at this beautiful but rather rare bird. In fact, I should say 
that it was an exceptionally good glimpse. It was only a 
glimpse, for the bird soon saw me and flew off. A little later 
I found the luckless gopher's head in the grass, apparently 
torn off by the force of the initial blow, a tribute to the bird's 

The Prairie Falcon is now almost a legend on the west- 
ern prairies. It is set apart from all other hawks by its in- 
credible speed and strength. A full-grown cock pheasant is 
usually killed outright by the force of the falcon's strike. 
Many coyotes have trespassed on the falcon's nesting 
grounds, and paid the price with their lives. Even men have 
fallen prey to this dauntless marauder of the air when they 
tried to touch the nestlings in their eyrie, which is usually 
set in the rocks of a cliff, where none but the cleverest may 
reach it. The falcon will attack an intruder fearlessly. One 
grip from the talons can rip a man's face to ribbons. The 
falcon is certainly not a bird to trifle with! 

The beautiful Prairie Falcon is quite rare now, thanks 
to those people who falsely accuse of it wholesale depreda- 
tions on game-birds. This bird is far more useful as a des- 
troyer of gophers and rabbits. Also, as it inhabits only the 
arid regions of the west, where man has almost extermin- 
ated the game, the bird now has to rely on rodents for well 
over fifty per-cent of its food. However, there are still the 
foolish men who shoot the falcon on sight, and destroy its 
eyrie if they can. The bird is protected in many parts of the 
country, but this does very little good, as the rules are not 
well enforced, and very few people pay any attention to 
them. However, someday man may see the light, and the 
lovely falcon may have a chance to make a comeback. Let 



Watts, H. G. ('48), "Jo" opened the door to his Brent House 
career in the fall of 1948. From the time those doors first closed 
behind him to the last time he went through them in the spring of 
1952, he rose from the rank of New Boy to Associate Head Prefect. 
He was certainly one of the best liked boys in the School, and was an 
inspiration and outstanding example to all. It has been said that brains 
and brawn do not mix, but "Jo" had them both. In his sports career, 
he played on the first football team for two years, receiving his colours 
in the first year, and in the second he was elected co-captain, awarded 
a Distinction Cap, and tied for the most valuable player award. Like- 
wise in hockey, he played on the first team for two years, getting 
his colours in the first year, and being elected vice-captain and awarded 
a Distinction Cap in the second. "Jo" also dabbled at tennis and cricket 
in the spring term when he had a few spare moments. He worked 
persistently at his schoolwork, and always stood high in the scholar- 
ship division of the sixth form. He was elected to the School Council, 
was President of the Political Science Club, vice-president of the Senior 
Debating Society, and a very efficient Head Sacristan. In his final 
year, he was Commanding Officer of the Cadet Corps, a position which 
befitted him well. He was a boy with unending patience, helping everj'- 
one who wished help from him. Because of the outstanding conti-ibu- 
tion he made in every phase of School life, he received the Bronze 
Medal on Speech Day. Hugh plans to become a teacher and we can- 
not v/ich him enough luck, success and happiness at Princeton. 

McDerment, R. M. ('43). Trinity College School first saw Bob in 
the fall of 1943 when he entered the Junior School as a dayboy from 
Port Hope. From that day till he left in June '52 the School never 
ceased to ring with his achievements. By the time he left the Junior 
School he had acquired a white sweatei' dotted with the crests of twelve 
first teams and was standing in the upper half of his form. When he 
entered the Senior School nobody was surprised when he made the 
first cricket team in his newboy year. During his next three years 

he made all the three major first teams and in his last year he was 
co-captain of the Championship Football Team of '51-'52 and captain 
of the Hockey Team, being awarded a Distinction Cap in both sports. 
Finally, he gained the enviable distinction of becoming a triple captain 
when he led the Little Big Four Championship Cricket Team to another 
successful season. In '50 he won the most valuable player award on 
the first football team and in '51 was voted the best fielder of the 
cricket team. In his final year Bob took time out from studies in June 
to tie for winner in Senior Track events. He worked persistently to 
keep up his standard in the classroom. He was a member of the School 
Council and the Senior Debating Society in his last year, and topped 
his career at T.C.S. by being appointed Associate Head Pi-efect, a 
position he well deserved. We are sure that nobody will disagree when 
we say that Bob was undoubtedly one of the greatest athletes the 
School has ever had. His outstanding leadership and command will 
long be remembered as well as his ability to lend a helping hand to 
the matters of the School. We wish him the best of luck and success 
in both the academic and athletic fields at Princeton where he is now 
a Freshman. 

Clark, H. 13. ('46). In 1946 the Junior School had a blessed 
event — the arrival of "Nobby." After a short but successful stay in 
the Junior School, he was received into the Senior School with open 
arms. He represented the School on the Bigside Football team for 
two successive years, and both times the team won the Little Big 
Four Championship. "Nobby" was awarded two colours and a Dis- 
tinction Cap, and he more than deserved all the praise he received. 
He was an ardent hockey and cricket player, and it was his keenness 
that made him stand out. He excelled in rifle shooting, winning the 
trophy for the best shot in the School. "Nobby" proved himself to 
be a real scholar in French and was a member of the French Club, 
belonged to the Debating Society, the School Council, and was one 
of Mr. Bishop's husky stage hands. Another of his many talents was 
his acting ability, and he was made, as a result, the President of the 
Dramatic Society. He won the prize for the best actor in 1951 for 
the flawless way he acted a rather thoughtless young Englishman in 
the school play "The Ghost Train." In his last year "Nobby" became 
a School Prefect and head of Brent House. He received a well deserved 
honour in being made the first winner of the St. Geoige Boyd Bursary. 
He also won the Jim McMuUen Memorial Trophy. Now he is off to 
the University of Toronto, and we all know that he will continue 
being as well liked and as successful in every way as he was here at 

Crawford, J. D. ('49). Dick will always be remembered for his 
solid character and wonderful sense of humour. His long list of acti- 
vities included being Secretary of the Senior Debating Society, 
Treasurer of the Political Science Club, and a very efficient Editor- 


in-Chief of the Record. These weiv all posts he ably filled to the 
letter. He was also a member of the Photographic Society. He was 
awarded half first team colours in football, full first team colours in 
swimming, and managed the Senior Basketball team. Dick was 
friendly to everybody, and in reward for his fine work, he was ap- 
pointed a School Prefect. With such a fine record at T.C.S., we know 
he will be a credit to the "Old School" at Varsity, where he is studying 
actuarial science. 

Seagram, N. M. ('46). When Norm came to the Senior School in 
1947 from "down below," his reputation came before him — and he 
lived up to it until he left thiee years later. In his first and second 
years, he was on nearly every Littleside and Middleside team, and did 
very well in his studies. He was also a member of the Record Staff, 
the Debating Society, the Political Science Club, and a Sacristan. In 
his last year, he won all four Bigside Colours and was Sports Editor 
of the Record as well. He also joined the Dramatic Society in his last 
year, and did a fine job portraying Mr. Radfern in the School play. 
He took his duties as a School Prefect very well, and did an excellent 
job. Apart from his academic and athletic achievements. Norm was 
probably best known for his unique personality, and dominating "Sea- 
gram" spirit. He had a cheerful outlook on life, and wonderful way 
of radiating his cheerfulness to others. It was fun while he was here, 
and we shall miss him greatly. Good luck. Norm, and come back and 
see us soon. 

Currie, G. S. ('49). Gord arrived in September '49 from Selwyn 
House in Montreal, and in the three years that he was here, he did 
moie foi' the School than most boys would do in five. He played on 
the First Football, Hockey and Swimming Teams, and won his colours 
in every one. The last year of his hockey season was cut short when 
he admirably helped the Swimming Team to another Little Big Four 
Championship. He was a School Prefect and was famous around Brent 
House for law and order and always getting the right man. He was 
also a valuable member of the Political Science Club. He would often 
be seen in his room reading the Gazette and dreaming of the wonder- 
ful girls in Montreal. He is off to McGill this year to study engineering. 
Good luck, Gord, the School will miss 3'ou. 

Muntz, E. P. ('46). After a successful two years in the J.S., Phil 
made his way into Brent House in the fall of '48, and proceeded to 
become one of the School's most outstanding athletes. He was on the 
First Football Team for three years, and in his last year tied both 
iur the Kicking and Catching Cup and the Most Valuable Pla.yer 
Award, and won a Distinction Cap. He played Senior basketball for 
three years, won the Most Valuable Player Award in 1951, and was 


co-captain in 1952. He was on the gym team for three years, and was 
vice-captain in his last. In th? spring term he played ciicket, won 
his colours as well as the Most Improved Player Award in 1951, and 
was vice-captain in 1952. In 1951 he was also the Intermediate Track 
Champion. He was an able member of the Debating Society, and a 
serious-minded student, which resulted in excellent Upper School 
results last June. He will always be remembei'ed as one of the most 
popular and congenial Prefects the School has ever had. A frown was 
rarely known to cross Phil's face. Our best wishes for the future fol- 
low him to Varsity, where he is studying Aeronautical Engineering. 
Don't forget the Old School, Phil, and come and see us sometime. 

Dolph, J. A. ('48). Jim came to T.C.S. in the fall of 1948 and 
started right away to find his place in the School. In his first year, 
besides proving his ability in studies, h-e won his boxing weight. The 
next year he won the Pancake Toss, was a member of the Champion- 
ship Football Team, and also won the Oxford Cup. This was also the 
year he won his Air Cadet Scholarship from the Air Force. As a 
person, Jim was well liked in the School, and his considerate nature 
together with his jovial attitude won him the respect of all. Besides 
his academic and athletic achievements, he was a most important 
member of the stage crew, and the Record Staff. In his last year, Jim 
became Head of Bethune House and was a great help to the School 
as a Prefect. We all liked Jim and will miss him this year. Good-bye 
and good luck. 

Wilding, T. D. ('47). T.C.S. first saw Tom in 1947 as a membe)- 
of the Junior School. The next year he came to the Senior School 
and settled down in Bethune. Squash, tennis, soccer, and swimming 
were his favorite sports, and besides his colours in Bigside soccer, 
he earned his Middleside swimming colour too. He was also a staunch 
supporter of the Rabbit Hockey League. Tom had an outstanding 
record in both the Political Science and D'ebating clubs, and his ex- 
cellent performance in H.M.S. Pinafore, for which he won the Drama- 
tic Cup, will always be remembered. In his last year here, Tom was 
Head Choir Boy after three years of faithful service to Mr. Cohu. 
His solo at the Carol Service was also done extremely well. Tom took 
pait in all forms of School life, was one of our most popular boys, 
and left here as a School Prefect on his way to Trinity College, To- 
ronto where we wish hini the best of luck. 

Anderson, R. J. ('46). Andy first came to the Junior School in 
1946, and it was not long before he had established himself as an 
exceptionally biilliant student. After three successful years there, 
and after winning an entrance scholarship to the Senior School, Andy 


came to Bethune in 1949 to continue his successful scholastic career. 
Besides being a help to the School academically, Andj' did more than 
his share of work on tha Record Staff as Literary Editor, in the Politi- 
cal Science Club, and in the Photography Club. Then too, he was 
vice-president of the Dramatic and Debating Societies and president 
of the Current Events club. In his last year, Andy v»^on his Middle- 
side socc3r colours and was a Bethune House Prefect, taking the 
respons.bilities of his post very well. He also won the Jubilee Exhibi- 
tion for Mathematics and the Governor General's Medal for Science, 
the Lieutenant Governor's Silver Medal for English, the prize for 
the best Debater and wound up his list of prizes as Head Boy and 
Chancellor's Prize Man. We all hope he will continue his scholastic 
successes in the years to come, because, as his masters and classmates 
discovered, Andy is not commonly intelligent, but unusually brilliant. 
The best of luck to you, Andy, we are going to miss you. 

Hendrie, A. O. ('49). Tony first came to Bethune in September 
1949. In that year, he played on Littleside football and basketball, 
also starring on Mr. G-T's Kabbit Hockey League. He always did 
well at his studies, and his hard work earned him very excellent Upper 
School results last June. Tony was a member of both the Political 
Science and Debating Clubs in his last year, and his choir achieve- 
ments included the singing of the "Wenceslas" solo at the Carol 
Service. Tony was always well-liked and before he left he became a 
House Prefect, a post he well deserved. Last summer he won a scholar- 
ship to Queen's University, and we all hope he may continue his 
scholastic achievements in his new surroundings. We wish him all 
the best, and hope he won't forget the "Old School." 

Hylton, J. 1>. ('49). Hylto never stopped going from the time 
he passed through Brent doors on the way in, to the time he was 
on his way out. He carried out all his extra-curricular activities with 
characteristic thoroughness. He was a good speaker in the Senior 
Debating Society, did remarkable work as News Editor for the Record, 
and one of his greatest achievements was the lead role in the School 
piay "Laburnum Grove," in which he did some excellent acting. He 
was captain of Littleside football, and received his Bantam basket- 
ball colours. He played Middleside cricket, was vice-captain of Middle- 
side football, and won his first team cricket colours. He was also 
manager for the Junior basketball team. He was very interested in 
music, and was a member of the Music Club as well as the Choir. 
Hylto was popular, and was made a House Prefect for his good work. 
He has now gone to school in France, and we know he will continue 
to do well. Bonne chance, Hylto. 

LeVan, R. W. ('48). Dick first pulled his dog team to a halt in 
front of Brent in 1948, fresh from the settlement of Arnprior. He 
soon settled down to be an "all-round" success at T.C.S. He was 
outstanding as president of the Camera Club, setting up developing 
apparatus in any wash basin in sight. In the winter term he illustrated 
for the Record, acted as secretary of the Current Events Club, and 
played Middleside hockey for two years, earning his colours. In his 
last year "Blub" played on the first team football and won a colour. 
In spite of these many achi\^vements and his duties as a House Prefect 
of Brent, Dick had a high academic standing. We hear you are 
entering engineering at U. of T., Dick, and wish you continued good 

Walker, H. F. ('49). On the first day of School in 1949, one of 
the New Boys was heard bouncing a basketball in middle-dorm Brent. 
When the offender was tracked down it turned out to be Doak Walker, 
an American import, fresh from Woodstown, New Jei'sey, v/hose re- 
markable skill made him one of the best basketballers T.C.S. has had 
for a long time. As co-captain of Bigside basketball in '50-'5l and as 
the most valuable player in '51-'52, he was usually the highest scorer 
with often over 20 points a game. He will also be remembered as a 
true American, displaying his national characteristics by organizing 
the interhouse baseball games in the summer term. In his last year, 
Hugh was a member of the Political Science Club, and took an active 
interest in the Music Club. He was appointed a Brent House Prefect, 
a position he filled veiy efficiently. He is now following in his father's 
footsteps by studying Chemical Engineering at Swathmore University 
in Pennsylvania where we know Hugh will be a good repi'esentative 
of the School. 

Woollcy, C. A. ('45). In early September 1945, a long thin body 
appeared over the horizon of Lake Ontario, swimming along at a 
gentle three knots, headed in the general direction of Trinity College 
School. Chris was coming all the way from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He 
was the best swimmer T.C.S. ever had. He led the first swimming 
team to two successive Little Big Foui' Championships and tied 
lecords in the hundred yard, fifty yard, and forty yard races, winning 
a Distinction Cap for his brilliant efforts. He was also a soccer and 
ci'icket enthusiast, representing the School on Middleside teams in 
both sports. To help make Inspection Day 1952, a success, he formed 
the backbone of the School orchestra, with his left hand on drums, 
playing foi- the J.S. club .swinging display. Chris was appointed 
House Prefect of Bethune House in his last year and fulfilled his 
duties successfully. He is now on his way to McMaster Universitj' 
and we all wish him the best of luck for the yeais to come.

Christie, H. C. K. ('46). Huntley was a staunch Bethunite from 
the first. Never an outstanding athlete, he nevertheless performed 
capably at basketball and contributed a great deal to his House by 
way of his personality. One never raw Huntley moody or upset, but 
always with a smile on his face, ready to help the other fellow. In 
his last year he was elected a Hous? Officer, taking the responsibilities 
very well. He was a definite part of T.C.S. and we will all mi?s not 
having him back with us this year. The best of luck to you, Huntley, 
in your studies. 

Day, H. G. ('48). Harry came up to the wilds of T.C.S. from 
wilder Mexico City in the fall of 1948. Although quiet, he was well- 
liked and settled down easily at the School. In his second year he 
played Middleside .^occer but gave it up in favour of rugby in which 
he was a member of Middleside for two j'-ears, receiving his colours. 
He was on Junior Basketball, earned his colours for Middleside squash, 
and was an ardent boxer. In his last year Harry was awarded the 
cup for "Keenness in Athletics" for his determined attitude towards 
sports. He belonged to the Debating Society, did valuable work for 
the Record staff, and was an active member of the Current Events 
Club. He was a House Officer in his last year, and carried out his 
duties to perfection. Best of luck in sunny Mexico, Harry. 

Dover, E. D. ('48). Benny exploded into Bethune in the fall of 
'48, quickly warming to a friendly atmosphere. Mr. Dening soon learnt 
to rely on him as a Librarian, which he was until his sixth form year 
when study took up his spare time. He was captain of Bantam Basket- 
ball, the next year earning his Junior Basketball colours. In his last 
year he won his first team soccer colours, and that winter was manager 
of the first hockey team. Ben has established a friendly reputation 
at T.C.S. and in his last year was a well-liked House Officer. We wish 
him all the best of luck. 

Godfrey, P. E. ('47). Paul came to the Junior School from Upper 
Canada College in 1947, and amazed everyone from the beginning by 
his outstanding knowledge of history. When he joined the Senior 
School in 1949, he played Littleside soccer and the next year took an 
active role in the Current Events and Political Science Clubs in the 
latter of which he held the position of secretary last year. He was 
also a member of Mr. Bishop's "Cercle francais." He won his Middle- 
side soccer colours and was a House Officer. This year Paul has left 
C;anada to attend the University of Geneva in Switzerland where he 
is taking a special course in languages and history. Best of luck to 
you, Politico. 


Jackman, F. L. K. ('46). From head boy in the J.S., Eric went 
on to prove himself a great asset in every phase of School life into 
which he entered. Eric was a natural leader, and was captain or vice- 
captain of every Middleside and Littleside football and hockey team 
he played on, and last year won his colours on the championship foot- 
ball team. He perhaps had his greatest success in the so-called minor 
sports. He was awarded his colours in gym. for two years and was 
vice-captain in the latter. He ran in the Oxford Cup Race, won the 
Bradburn Cup for the best boxer, the Bill Strong Memorial Cup for 
skiing, and tied for the Daykin Cup for the senior aggregate on Sports 
Day. He was a member of the Senior Debating Society and the French 
Club, and was elected to the School Council for two years. Eric v/as 
last year appointed a House Officer, a post he well deserved. He is 
off to U.B.C. this year, and we know the popularity he enjoyed here 
will carry him far wherever he goes. 

Long, J. H. ('50). John came into Brent House in the fall of 1950. 
Though it was a late start in the School, he soon became one of the 
most popular boys. In his first year, he played on both Middleside 
football, and Bigside hockey, winning his colours in the latter. The 
next year he won both his football, and hockey Distinction Caps. John 
was also a member of the Debating Society, and the Record Staff. In 
the School, he was a fun-loving fellow who won the respect and admira- 
tion of his many friends. He was elected a House Officer in his last 
year, and helped out considerably as one of our Senior boys. We under- 
stand he has now been accepted for a short sei'vice commission in 
the R.C.A.F. Best of luck, Johnny. 

Molson, J. B. ('48). Moley ambled into Brent House in 1948 from 
Vancouver, and at once showed his ability in athletics by playing on 
the various teams. In his last year he culminated his efforts in sport 
by making the 1951 championship football team and winning his 
colours. He also ran the Oxford Cup, played Junior basketball, and 
was an ardent boxer as well as track runner. For this and his other 
efforts he was made a House Officer. The School will greatly miss 
Moley and his quiet unassvuning outlook on life. He is now working 
for a year before entering the University of Biitish Columbia. Drop 
by and see us some time, Moley. 

Mowry, I. B. ('47). Brian came to the Junior School in 1947. He 
was soon a senior boy there, and a respected athlete in each sport he 
had undertaken. When Brian entered Brent House in 1949, he carried 
on from wheie he had left off "down below." In his first yeai' he won 
his Middleside football and hockey colours. The year after that he 


excelled in Bigside basketball, later becoming the spirit of baseball 
at T.C.S. In his last year "Moe" was a Senior Debater, a House Officer, 
and a most useful member of the Record Staff. We shall miss not 
having him back with us this year, and with him goes the best of luck 
from all of us. 

Norman, F. J. (*44). Norm entered the J.S. in 1944, having come 
from Sehvyn House, and came to the S.S. in '49. He was a prominent 
member of th-e choir, and sang a solo at the Christmas Service. Among 
his many activities, he was Business Manager of the Record, a post 
he fulfilled to the letter, and President of the Science Club. Norm 
was an avid book reader, amassing a tremendous list of books which 
was twice as long as anybody else's. He was made a House Officer 
in his final year and has now gone to Royal Roads where we wish 
him the very best of success. 

Oman, G. H. ('48). "Geek" first came to us from Lima, Peru, 
and soon won many friends by his jovial good-nature. Last year he 
was vice-captain of Middleside soccer, and Rabbit Queen at the annual 
School beauty contest. Academically he always did well, and last year 
he won the Proficiency Prize in VIA. Keith had a varied list of extra- 
curricular activities, among them Business Manager of the Record, 
an ardent member of the Political Science Club, the Debating Society 
and the Choir. He proved a capable House Officer, and was well-liked 
by the School. Do not let flashing dark eyes and flitting smiles cap- 
ture you in romantic Peru, Keith! 

Phillips, A. ('48). Creep bounced into T.C.S. in the fall of '48. 
and because of his gieat interest in School activities became one of 
the best known and most popular boys in the School. He at once 
became interested in football, earning his Littleside colours. He went 
on to win his Middleside coloius the next year, and in his final two 
years became one of the best running guards the School has ever had 
on the two championship teams of '50 and '51. For this he was awarded 
a Distinction Cap in his final year. Creep also played hockey and 
won his Middleside colours. He was a member of the School Council 
for three years, a Sacristan, a stagehand, and a member of the Record 
Staff composing the famed Grape-vine. For his good work around 
the School, Tony was made a House Officer in his final year. He is 
now going to St. Jean Military College in Quebec, where we know he 
will become a good sailor. 


Robertson, J. D. ('46). Robbie came to the Junioi- School from 
Jamaica in the fall of 1946. After two years there he entered the 
Senior School and became one of the most popular New Boys of the 
year. He soon became well known for his dancing ability and for 
his wonderful sense of humour. Robbie did very well as an athlete, 
being awarded half first team football colours in h s senior year. In 
th-e previous year, he was captain of Junior basketball and a Junior 
Aggregate cup winner in track. As a sixth former, he was appointed 
a House Officer and filled the position extremely well. We all are 
sure that his future years will bi'ing him success. 

Ross, A. G. ('49). "Cueball" rolled into the halls of Bethune in 
the fall of 1949 after spending several years at Selwyn House. To 
those v/ho knew him best, Andy soon displayed his mischievous, fun- 
loving nature behind his innocent smile, and rare was the time that 
something was not afoot. In his first year he won his Littleside soccer 
colours, and for the next two years played Middleside soccer. He also 
won his weight in boxing. He was a member of the School Council, 
the Political Science Club, and did valuable work on the Record Staff. 
He was a House Officer in his senior year, and is now continuing his 
career at McGill. 

Sinimonds, C. R. ('49). Straw-head joined the ranks of the New 
Boys in the fall of '49, and soon became a popular member of the 
School. After playing Littleside soccer for a year, he gave up this 
sport in favour of football. He was a competitive member of Mr. 
G.-T.'s Rabbit Hockey, and also made a name for himself on Bantam 
basketball. Straw took a great interest in extra-curricular activities, 
and took time out from his studies to be an efficient member of the 
Business Staff of The Record, Mr. Bishop's Circle Francais, the Science 
Club, the Photography Club, and the Debating Society. He still found 
time to become an excellent actor in the Dramatic Society, and one 
of the select few in the Political Science Club. Charlie did very well 
in his Upper School examinations, and our best wishes for the future 
follow him to R.M.C. where he is now continuing his studies. 

Sp<'n<'<'r, C. O. ('42). Chris came to Port Hope from Japan and 
spent seven years in the Junior School. When he joined the Senior 
School in 1949, a career of varied activities was launched. He was 
captain of Middleside soccer, and played on the first team. He was a 
member of a losing Rabbit Hockey team but made up for it by be- 
coming a successful Bantam basketball captain and winning an award 
of merit in swimming. In the third term, he played Middleside cricket. 
He had a long list of extra curricular activities, among them, secretary 


of the School Council, Feature Editor for the Record, and a member 
of the Dramatic and Senior Debating Societies. He belonged to the 
Political Science Club, to the Art Club, and was one of Mr. Cohu's 
choir boys. He was also a Crucifer in his final year. Chris won an 
entrance scholarship when he came from the Junior School, and year 
before last learnt to fly on an R.C.A.F. Flying Scholarship. He was 
made a House Officer in his final year as a reward for his excellent 
work. He now has an R.C.A.F. one year short- service commission 
and plans to go to Trinity College. We know he will continue to do 

Strathy, J. G. B. ('46). John came to us in the fall of 1946, and 
went into the Junior School where he spent two years. Upon joining 
the Senioi' School, John became a member of Brent House and through- 
out his school career took a keen and active part in School life. In 
1950, he won his Middleside cricket colours, and also his Junior basket- 
ball coloui's. He was a member of the Record staff, a Sacristan, and 
a member of Mr. Dale's Senior Debating Society. In 1951, John was 
made captain of Middleside football. He was on the Little Big Four 
Championship squash team last year, w^inning his first team colours, 
and was a member of the squash team that represented the School by 
touring several New England Colleges during the Christmas holidays. 
For all these efforts, John was made a House Officer. We are sure 
John will succeed not only in his studies but also in finding many 
pretty girls. 

Thomas, VV. D, S. ('50). Although only with us for two years, 
"Wunkus" became a first class member of the School and an excellent 
example to others. In both of his two years he played Bigside goalie 
in soccer and was on the first basketball team. Last year he was 
elected co-captain of the latter, and his consistent fine play was a 
great asset to the team. Wunk was a member of the Political Science 
Club, the Photography Club, the School Council, and in his last year 
was made a House Officer. With exceptionally good middle school 
papers behind him this year. Bill is off to U.B.C. with Medicine in 
mind and we know Vancouver will be as glad to get him back as we 
are sorry to see him go. 

Clarke, E. L. ('47). Ezzie entered the J.S. from the metropolis 
of Forest Hill in 1947 and from there entered Bi-ent House in the fall 
of '49. He had a very successful New Boy year, winning both the 
Novice Boxer Cup and the Magee Cup. The same year he played Little- 
side football and basketball, winning his colours in the former. Despite 
the fact that his studies kept him out of most sports he did a con- 


siderable amount of horse-back riding and in his final year ran in the 
Oxford Cup, being- awarded a half first team colour for his effort. Ez 
was also an ardent member of the Senior Debating Society. He was 
well-liked around the School and oui' best wishes follow him to the 
University of Toronto. 

Hardy, A. M. ('51). "Art" was one of the four Sixth form New 
Boys who occupied the bottom flat Bethune four-man room last year. 
He came to us from Sedbergh School near Ottawa, and soon established 
himself as the person to see if anyone wanted any information about 
cars. During the winter, he spent most of his spare time on the slopes 
of Northumberland, skiing. He was rewarded for all his efforts by 
winning the Sifton cup, annually awarded to the School's best ci-oss- 
counti-y skier. We wish him the best of luck at Ashbury College where 
he has gone to carry on his studies. 

Penny, J. G, ('51). The casual observer looking out of Bethune 
House on a dark cold autumn evening might have been surprised to 
see a shadowy figure, whose face was lit up by a brightly glowing 
pipe, stalking along the terrace. It was, of course, Gord Penny arriving 
in the fall of '51. Gord soon settled in as one interested in all phases 
of School life. He played Middleside soccer. Rabbit League hockey 
and during the Bigside hockey games he could be heard broadcasting 
the score from the penalty box. On the Literary Staff of the Record, 
His essays were published in nearly every edition during the year. 
Gord was a keen member of the Dramatic Society, the Political 
Science Club, the Senior Debating Society, and at the same time a 
hard working Sacristan and Choir boy. Gord is now a reporter on the 
Brantford Expositor. We hope that his career on the Record will be 
of some assistance. Good luck, Gord. 

Wood, D. M. ('49). Ti gravitated from U.C.C. to T.C.S. in 1949, 
and immediately became a stalwart member of Bethune House. He 
received his first team colours on the Championship Swimming team, 
and was Mr. Gwynne-Timothy's "star" on the Rabbit Hockey "All- 
Star" team. He avidly pattered away in the Cercle francais, was a 
member of the Science and Photography Clubs, and was one of Mr. 
Bishop's efficient stage hands. Monty did well in his Upper School 
work and is now continuing his studies in which we wish him the 
best of luck.

Except by the use of a crystal ball, the only way to 
guess at the future is to examine the past and deduce the 
rate at which our standards are changing. At the turn of 
the century, the aeroplane as we know it had not been in- 
vented, the internal combustion and diesel engines were still 
very crude and electricity was only just starting on a com- 
mercial scale. Several years were to pass before Marconi 
conducted his epoch making experiments and that "young 
idiot" Einstein was making calculations which would not 
be appreciated for many years. 

Now consider how much the world has advanced since 
then. Rockets pulse skywards at three times the speed of 
sound to attain heights of over a hundred miles. Man him- 
self has flown at a thousand miles an hour at altitudes where 


his blood would boil if it were not for protective pressuriza- 
tion, Mr, Middleclass of the Western hemisphere has bene- 
fited in innumerable ways. Newspapers, magazines, motion 
pictures, automobiles, radio, television, trains, electric lights 
and warm buildings all testify to the advances made in 
chemistry and physics. 

It is difficult to realize that seventy-five per cent of this 
progress has been made in the past forty years and a good 
portion during the last decade. It has been said that the 
cost of the second world war will be paid back twofold in 
a few years by the money, time and suffering saved by the 
results of high speed research which went on during the 
war. The jet engine and the Comet airliner, penicillin and 
all the other wonder drugs, nylon, orlon, acrylon — they are 
all products of the war. Our knowledge of the subject of 
Atomic Energy has increased a hundred fold since the out- 
break of the v/ar. Before that time, a few men with moderate 
funds groped their way along the dark, winding path pre- 
sented by the secrets of the atom. But when the war started 
millions upon millions were spent by the governments of 
Great Britain and the United States in the building of re- 
search laboratories and the construction of the immense 
installations necessary to split the atom. With the aid of 
this equipment and capital our scientists were able in three 
years to learn more than they had in the past twenty and 
fill more gaps in a shorter time than they had ever imagined 

It is not improbable, therefore, that with the cold war 
likely to continue, and with defence budgets alotting large 
sums to research, by 1980, if war still has not broken out, 
man will know so much about atomic energy that pure 
atomic motors, and power plants will be built and work 
will be well advanced on atomic rocket motors. 

The wide field of organic chemistry will also produce 
many surprises. The intense study of protein acids and 
muscle fibre which is now in progress will soon pay dividends 
and before very long the world's food shortage, now getting 
more serious, will be relieved by artifical foods which may 


not taste as good as real food but will have full nourish- 
ment value. Before 1980, by careful work and much study, 
the great scourges of cancer and tuberculosis should be 
vanquished and hardening of the arteries and high blood 
pressure, now number one killers, will be under control. 

One could continue to list the probable progress that 
will be made in every field, cybernetics, interplanetary flight, 
electronics and nucleonics but it would be tiring. There are, 
however, some who believe that 1980 will never come but 
that the world will be laid waste and that man will extin- 
quish himself by his own foolishness. This very same view 
has been proved wrong in many similar situations in history. 
Each time man has failed to destroy himself. He has always 
in the past risen up to produce new generations, will do so 
again despite the atomic bomb and the threat of interstellar 
warfare, and set his face toward the time when in the words 
of the Christian hymn: 

"The stormy clangour 
Of wild war music o'er the earth shall cease; 
Love shall tread out the baleful fire of anger, 
And its ashes plant the tree of peace."

Off THg 


A metallic grating sound marks the first lurch of the 
rusty chains which slowly begin to clank around the whining, 
protesting wheels. Damp, wet, cloudy steam hisses into 
thunderheads over a conglomeration of iron tubes, wheels, 
chains, cylinders, and boxes, from which the wisps of sum- 
mer dust floating in the air are mute witnesses of a diligent 
editor's ability. The forms of other beings are vaguely dis- 
tinguished in the haze — more editors. 

On a wall a dog-eared notice announces "Two days until 
the Deadline" and one begins to get an inkling for the reason 
for this feverish activity. After its annual rest the 'Record" 
is again under way. 

Behind a pile of yellow pages a face appears — the face 
is a study of friendishness. The diabolic eyes wander around 
the great "Record" chamber, then rest on the dog-eared 
notice. The face disappears, and the unmistakable scratch- 
ing of a busy pen is audible. Other faces appear from be- 
hind yellow piles, glance at the notice, and rise, pulling 
various shaped bodies to a standing position. They leave the 
great chamber, the puffing machinery, the unbrushed cow- 
webs, the wisps of dust floating in the air. These are the 
editors ; they are friends grown brutal. They troop upstairs. 
They make their roimds. Frightened assistants are pinned 
for write-ups, over-worked typists are lashed into submis- 
sion. But the editors are still impatient, and their impatience 


grows to a heat of fury, and their fury leaps in a frenzy of 
white fire — burning, whipping, cruel fire. Mercilessly it ad- 
vances, unturned by the pleas for mercy. It rises in the eyes 
of editors — it sinks into the souls of assistants. Sweat drips 
to the tempo of roars from editors, write-ups arrive in 
proportion to roars from editors. 

But at last the final write-up is tremulously handed 
in — brutality softens, victim becomes friend, life is worth- 
while anew. A relieved editor breaks into a smile: 

"Everything's in," he murmurs.

Dear Sirs: 

For more years than we can remember we have been 
advertising fish regularly in your School magazine, but we 
now feel that we have no other recourse but to discontinue 
our regular advertisement for the following reason. 

For sometime now we have not been selling any of our 
fish to the Senior School and two weeks ago the Dietitian 
of the Jimior School was good enough to explain to us that 



she would have to discontinue purchasing from us, due to 
the fact that other arrangements had been made. It was 
indeed quite disappointing to have this cancellation of your 
usual fish orders. 

In any event, we do not feel inclined towards placing 
further fish advertisements with you under the above cir- 

Yours truly. 
The Fish Company Limited. 


For a first team to win all its exhibition games at T.C.S. 
is a novelty, but it is also one to be regarded with skepti- 
cism. A mistake might be, in fact, that not having been 
beaten soundly as usual by Peterborough, the team may 
not have instilled in themselves the will to win which has 
driven the teams of the past two years to the Little Big 
Four Championship. The team has shown little on offence in 
the four exhibition games but the defensive drive and tack- 
ling has been brilliant at times, and the fact that only one 
touchdown was scored against us should be a decisive factor 
in the three games to come. With a week to go before the 
U.C.C. game, we feel confident that Trinity will field a team 



well worthy of representing the School, and one which, if 
it inherits the spirit of former years, has a good chance 
of making history at T.C.S. Only once before in the history 
of the School has a football team been undefeated ; never has 
a team won three championships in a row. 

This year the team has elected John Gordon as Captain, 
with Doug Colbourne as Vice Captain, and we know that 
their leadership and the example they will set will be of 
great value in building up the spirit and morale of the team. 
This is John Gordon's third year on the team, and as Cap- 
tain and quarterback his experience and determination will 
be a great help in leading the team to a tentative third 
Little Big Four Championship. Let us hope that the team 
will have something to complain about that was not neces- 
sary in the games to date, namely that the cheering from 

the sidelines will drown out the signals. Good luck, Bigside. 

— M. C. deP. 


At Port Hope, September 27: Won 21-3 

Bigside opened their current season on a note of triumph 
trouncing a weaker Belleville team by a margin of 21-3. 
With two weeks of practice behind them, our team displayed 
the makings of a fine team and showed plenty of spirit and 
drive. There was good blocking on the line and strong down- 
field tackling throughout the game. 

Trinity opened the scoring at the five minute mark with 
Jim Brown running the left end for his first major. The 
touchdown was not converted. After several exchanges of 
the ball, Trinity capitalized on a blocked kick and gained 


possession of the ball on the Belleville 25 yard line at the 
end of the first quarter. Then Brown scored his second tally 
on a line buck which John Gordon converted to make the 
score 11-0. After several passes were attempted on both 
sides, none of which was completed, Belleville marched the 
length of the field and Kellett scored on a field goal from the 
twenty-yard line to make the score 11-3 as the half ended. 

As the second half began, Bob McCullagh recovered a 
blocked kick on the Belleville three-yard line. Gordon plunged 
across for a major making the score 16-3. Trinity began to 
threaten again at the beginning of the fourth quarter but 
their hopes were washed away with an intercepted pass. 
However, another blocked kick by Belleville resulted in 
Trinity's possession of the ball on the centre line. Trinity 
kicked and Belleville fumbled the catch, Roy Heenan pick- 
ing up the ball and running thirty yards for a touchdown 
to make the score 21-3 as the game ended. 

Doug Colbourne, Brown, Luxton and Yale played very 
strong games for Trinity while Moore, Cherry and Legate 
stood out for the losers. 

At Port Hope, October 1. Won 5-2. 

T.C.S. made it two in a row by defeating a very fast, 
hard hitting Peterborough team 5-2 in an exciting game 
that produced some excellent football by both sides. Trinity 
kicked to Peterborough who ran the ball to the forty-five 
yard line, from where they drove downfield to the T.C.S. 
twenty-five. The School took the ball back to the Peter- 
borough forty but were unable to score. The play was very 
fast and the ball changed hands many times, but neither 
team was able to get in scoring position. Peterborough 
started the second quarter with a safety, when John Seagram 
was tackled behind the line after a field goal attempt had 
failed. However, T.C.S. came back and a forty yard Gordon 
to Board pass brought the ball to the ten. Gordon then ran 
to the one yard line from where Doug. Colbourne stepped 


across to make the half time score 5-2 in favour of the 

In the second half, repeated tackles by Parker, Luxton, 
and Higgins, backed up by Heenan and Arnold, time and 
again stopped Peterborough in their tracks. Although there 
were several good chances, the defensive work of both teams 
was very tight, and no further additions were made to the 
score. As the score would indicate, the game was very 
closely contested, and the lines of both teams are to be con- 
gratulated for the rugged, hard-hitting play they displayed 
throughout the game. 


At Port Hope, October 4. Won 12-5. 

In a somewhat uneventful football game. Trinity de- 
feated Malvern Collegiate by a score of 12-5. The game was 
slowed down considerably by constant off-sides and many 
fumbles, and the School looked weak in line blocking and 
defensive tackling. 

From the kickoif , Trinity marched to the Malvern twenty 
yard line. Gordon completed a pass to Don Colbourne who 
went over, but unfortunately the School was off-side. After 
several exchanges of the ball Trinity seemed to settle down 
a little and Gordon kicked for a single at the end of the 
first half. 

At the start of the second half Gordon completed a 
pass to Board who ran thirty-five yards to score the first 
major of the game. Malvern threatened as they took pos- 
session of the ball and marched to the Trinity ten-yard line 
but were unable to score. In the final quarter Gordon scored 
Trinity's second touchdown on a line plunge which he con- 
verted to make the score 12-0. Malvern then took possession 
of the ball on the T.C.S. forty yard line from where Parring- 
ton ran around the end for Malvern's only touchdown. The 
convert being blocked, the final score was T.C.S. 12, Mal- 
vern 5. 


Against a team that had just played a League game the 
day before, T.C.S. should have done much better than they 
did, and the only bright spots in the team were Gordon and 


At Port Hope, October 11. Won 30-2. 

In the last exhibition game of the season ,T.C.S. walked 
over a weaker Oshawa team winning by a score of 30-2. 
The first half of the game was very shaky and it was not 
until the second half that Trinity settled down to play good 

Trinity started out well as Brown took the ball to the 
Oshawa twenty-yard Ime. A Gordon to Yale pass counted 
for the first Trinity touchdown which Gordon converted. 
After several exchanges of the ball Gordon was able to kick 
for a single. Then Oshawa marched down the field and an 
attempted field goal by Harris accounted for two points, 
as Board was tackled behind the line. T.C.S. threatened 
several times before a pass from Gordon to Board resulted 
in an unconverted touchdown, ending the half with the score 
of Trinity 14, Oshawa 2. 

At the beginning of the second half Trinity was unable 
to make any gain and an intercepted pass brought Oshawa 
to the Trinity twenty-yard line. Oshawa was unable to score, 
however, and Brown took the ball for T.C.S. and ran eighty 
yards in three plays to the Oshawa ten to put Trinity in a 
scoring position. Seagram then went over on a long play 
for a major which Gordon converted. Oshawa tried to open 
an air attack but an intercepted pass by Board put Trinity 
in Oshawa territory again. Gordon threw a pass to Yale 
which was good for a touchdown, Gordon converting. In the 
final quarter Trinity displayed such a good defense that 
Oshawa was unable to get into scoring position. The final 
scoring came when Gordon plunged from the ten-yard line 
for a touchdown which he converted on a pass to Johnson 
to make the final score 30-2.

The passing of Gordon was the highlight of the game 
and with such good receivers as Yale and Board, T.C.S. may 
display a pass attack in the L4ttle Big Four games that will 
prove of great value.

This year Middleside has been divided into two groups, 
an "A" and a "B" team. The "A" team is being coached by 
Mr. Armstrong again this year, with Mr. Dale as assistant 
coach. The team has developed very well, and a small but 
fast backfield is getting excellent support from a first class 
line. Middleside have had some very close and exciting 
games so far, winning two of them by only a few points. 
Donald and Cumberland have been elected Captain and Vice- 
Captain, and we wish them and the rest of the team continued 

SCHOOL at U.C.C., September 27. Won 17-16. 

In their first game of the season, Middleside came from 
behind to defeat U.C.C. by one point in a very close and 
exciting game. In the first quarter U.C.C. scored two touch- 
downs by Scott and Clacheson, with Scott converting the 
second. Although both teams had possession of the ball deep 
in their opponent's territory, the second quarter went score- 

Trailing by a score of 11-0, Trinity pulled together and 
Donald went over for two touchdowns, one of which was 
converted by Burns. Mather then put T.C.S. out in front 
on a long kick for a point only to have Upper Canada come 
back with an unconverted touchdown by Leggat. In the 
closing minutes of the game, Donald scored his third touch- 
down to make the final score 17-16 in favour of T.C.S. 


For the winners Donald, Anstis and Ryley ii played very 
well, while Scott was outstanding for the losers. 

RIDLEY at T.C.S., October 4. Won 22-7 

Middleside made it two in a row, as they defeated Rid- 
ley in a close and wide open football game. The third play 
of the game gave Ridley a 5-0 lead, as a long pass to Sutton 
was good for an unconverted touchdown. A recovered 
fumble by Pete Giffen set up the School's first major, as 
Dink Donald went over for a touchdown, which he converted 
himself. Storm put B.R.C. out in front again in the second 
quarter, as he picked up a blocked kick and ran the rest of 
the way for a touchdown. The lead changed hands twice 
more before the half, as Cumberland ran for a Trinity major, 
only to have Ridley come back with a converted touchdown 
by Stewart, making the half time score 17-11 for the visitors. 

A 65 yard touchdown run by Sutherland opened the 
second half, and minutes later Trowsdale tied the score by 
kicking a single point. Geoff Boone scored the final touch- 
down in the last quarter, giving T.C.S. the victory 22-17. 

Storm was the standout for Ridley, while the whole 
T.C.S. team deserves credit for the win. 

ST. PETER'S COLLEGE at T.C.S., October 11. Lost 21-3. 

Middleside lost their third game to St. Peter's College 
in a very rugged and keenly contested game. Lafleur kicked 
off for Trinity, and after ten minutes of play O'Rourke of 
St. Peter's went over for a touchdown, which was converted 
by Chambers. Donald then kicked a single point for T.C.S., 
only to have O'Rourke go over for his second major, making 
the score 11-1 at the end of the half. 

The third quarter saw the School boost its total by two 
more points as Ferrie tackled Foley of St. Pete's behind the 
line for one, and Boone kicked to the dead line for the other. 
The Peterborough team fought back in the dying minutes, 
as Foley and Quiline each went over for unconverted majors 
making the final score 21-3 for the visitors. O'Rourke and 


Hickey played well for the winners, while Sutherland, Boone, 
Cumberland and Burns were the best for the School. 

The Team — Donald (Capt.), Cumberland (Vice-Capt.), Boone, Roe, 
Bums i, Burns ii, Newland, Anstis, Parker ii, Ferrie, Scott i, Suther- 
land, Mather, Colbourne ii, Ryley ii, Tiowsdale, Goodman, Giffen, 
Cran, Hargraft, McGlennon, Lafleur. 


The Middleside "B" team is being coached this year by 
Mr. A. Scott. The team has elected Rod. MacCosham as 
Captain, with Jack Mills as Vice-Captain, and although they 
have not been too successful in their games so far, there 
are signs of improvement, mainly due to some recruits sent 
down from the "A" team. 

A game with Port Hope High, which attracted many 
fair supporters, started the season for Middleside "B". Al- 
though losing by a score of 16-0 to the aggressive and highly 
spirited Port Hope team, T.C.S. showed some improvement 
as the game went on. 

In their second game, played at U.C.C, the Upper Canada 
team had scored three touchdowns before five minutes had 
elapsed. Despite this bad start, the team settled down and 
played inspired football for the rest of the game, threatening 
to score many times. MacCosham and Verral played very 
well throughout the game, and the general spirit of the team 
was good. 

The Team — MacCosham (Captain), Mills (Vice-Captain), Kells, 
Binnie, Moore, Moor, Church, Dunlap, Tanner, Haig, Sherwood, 
Verral, Nanton, Osier i, Dewdney, L-ennard, Montemurro, Hayes, 
Stevens^Guille, Marpole, Thompson, Harris, Boucher, Hierlihy, Sams, 


Littleside has one of the best teams in a long time this 
year, and imder the direction of Mr. Landry, have developed 
into a very well balanced team. A speedy, good sized back- 
field has been getting good support from the line, and de- 


fensively the team has played very tightly. Mac Campbell, 
who has been doing some excellent kicking for the team, and 
Dave Dunlap, the mainstay of the line, have been elected 
Captain and Vice-Captain. 

As is usually the case on Littleside teams, the spirit 
of the squad is very high, and we wish them the best of luck. 

U.C.C. at T.C.S., September 27. Won 18-0. 

In their first game of the season, Littleside showed the 
makings of an excellent team as they defeated Upper Canada 
18-0. Hyland opened the scoring for Trinity as he went over 
for a converted touchdown early in the first quarter. Neither 
team was able to get into scoring position again until late 
in the second quarter when Campbell kicked 45 yards for a 
point. Nearing half-time, Caryer grabbed a pass from 
Hyland in the end zone to make the score 12-0, the convert 
being blocked. 

The second half started with Campbell kicking another 
single point for T.C.S. The game then slowed up consider- 
ably, with both teams exchanging the ball around the centre 
stripe, until Hyland broke away for a touchdown just before 
the final whistle. 

The game was much closer than the score would in- 
dicate, with the outstanding play of Hyland, Campbell, Lash 
and Dunlap being mostly responsible for the Trinity victory. 

RIDLEY at T.C.S., October 4. Lost 10-7. 

In a very hard fought game T.C.S. lost to Ridley by a 
score of 10-7. The first half was very close with the ball 
changing hands around the centre stripe until Ridley finally 
broke away for a touchdown which went unconverted. Camp- 
bell put the School into the score column minutes later as 
he booted a kick for a single. 

Ridley opened the second half by going over for a touch- 
down to make the score 10-1. With one minute left to play 
Hyland threw a long pass to Winnet in the end zone for a 
touchdown which Winnet converted. 


Littleside showed excellent spirit throughout the game, 
and played very well against a bigger Ridley team. 

U.T.S. at T.C.S., October 8. Won 21-0. 

In their third game, a much improved and more polished 
team represented Littleside. 

Trinity took control early in the game as Campbell 
kicked a single in the first minute of play. U.T.S. could not 
seem to hold onto the ball and a recovered fumble by Dun- 
lap deep in enemy territory enabled Winnett to kick a field 
goal from the fifteen yard line. 

Littleside broke loose in the second quarter with three 
touchdowns in quick succession by Hyland, Campbell and 
Winnett. Winnett converting the second and third, bringing 
the score up to 21-0 at the end of the half. 

U.T.S. improved considerably in the second half but 
could not break through a strong, hard driving Trinity line. 
There was no further scoring by either team, and T.C.S. 
emerged victorious by a score of 21-0. 

T.C.S, — Campbell (Capt.), Dunlap (Vice-Capt.), Winnett, Boughner, 
Hyland, Procter, Caryer, Cape, Seagram ii. Long, Lash, Jenkins, 
Matthews, Ruddy, Saegert, Van Straubenzee, Blackwell, Labatt, 
Cartwright, Bonnycastle ii, Trickett, Boake. 


A very enthusiastic group turned out again this year 
for Littleside "B", and Mr. Hass is in charge of coaching 
duties. The team has had scrimmages with the J.S., in 
which Overholt ii, and Cassels lead the team to a very im- 
pressive showing. 

The following are members of the team: — Overholt ii, 
Cassels, Mayberry, Scott ii, Scott iii, Council, Price, Carsley, 
Davies, Rindfliesch, Ross ii, Leech, Krohn, Gordon ii. Elder- 
kin, Cristall. 




This year more people are playing soccer than ever be- 
fore, and there is more enthusiasm being shown for the 
game than in recent years. Mr. Willmer has taken over 
coaching duties of Bigside, and his experience should be a 
great advantage in time to come. There are four colours 
back from last year's team, and Kit Cowan has been elected 
Captain, with Jarda Polak as Vice-Captain. Although they 
have not done too well in their games so far, this has been 
mainly due to an inability to put the ball in goal once it is 
in the opponent's end. The team is in excellent condition, 
and should do better as the year goes on. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, September 24. Tied 0-0. 

In one of the closest and most exciting games in many 
years, St. Andrew's and T.C.S. fought to a draw after a long 
hard battle. Both teams were very lucky many times in the 
first half, as shots just missed open corners at each end of 
the field. Again in the second half, there were many close 
calls, and the score is a tribute to the defenders of both 
teams. Lafleur played an outstanding game for T.C.S. and 
he was ably supported by Adamson, Church and Higgins. 

For S.A.C, Malcolm, Hardman and Crane played very 
well, and we look forward to the return match at Aurora. 



At Port Hope, September 27. Lost 3-1. 

A first class Port Hope soccer team defeated Bigside 
in their second game of the season by a score of 3-1. From 
the opening whistle Port Hope pressed hard, and Smith put 
the visitors in front 1-0. The T.C.S. defence tightened up 
considerably and although enjoying most of the play, Port 
Hope failed to score again in the half. 

At the start of the second half, Port Hope scored again. 
Trinity, with Mr. Willmer now playing for them, retaliated 
with renewed vigour, and Church finally scored on a long 
shot from the left wing. Port Hope came back, however, and 
added another goal making the score 3-1 in their favour. 

Headed by Mr. Willmer and Polak, the team played very 
well against a far superior team, and gained some valuable 

At Upper Canada, October 1. Lost 4-1. 

In their first game against U.C.C, T.C.S. was outplayed 
by a much stronger and more experienced team. Midway 
through the first period, Grey of U.C.C. opened the scoring 
on a screened penalty kick, and Brocht added another 
minutes later. Lafleur made several good saves to hold the 
score at 2-0 at half-time though Upper Canada had most 
of the play. 

In the second half T.C.S. came to life and in the open- 
ing minutes Bingham, assisted by Church, scored on a long 
shot from left wing. T.C.S. kept pressing, but on sudden 
breaks, Goldstein and Webb scored for U.C.C. Although 
there were several more close calls, there was no further 
scoring and the game ended 4-1 for U.C.C. 


At Newmarket. October 4. Lost 5-3. 

On a clear but slightly windy day, T.C.S. travelled to 
Newmarket for their first game with Pickering. After the 


opening whistle Pickering drove very hard and before long 
Marinakys tallied two quick goals. Within a few minutes 
Abaroa followed with another to end the scoring in the first 

Early in the second half, T.C.S. was awarded a direct 
kick on goal and Cowan scored on a beautiful shot. Abaroa 
retaliated with a goal seconds later. Church then scored 
for T.C.S. on a high shot after a corner kick by Bateman. 
T.C.S. kept pressing and on a neat passing play by tenBroek 
and Bateman, Cowan scored again. With renewed drive 
Pickering roared down the field for a final score by Abaroa. 

For T.C.S., Higgins, Cowan and Bingham played well, 
while Abaroa, Marinakys and Gallano were exceptional for 

The Team — .Polak, Bateman, Cowan, tenBroek, Higgins ii, Bing- 
ham, Thornton, Adamson, Church, Mitchell, Lafleur ii. 


October 13. Lost 2-1. 

In a very closely contested match, the Old Boys de- 
feated T.C.S. 2-1. Midway through the first half, Cowan 
opened the scoring with a high shot from far out. The play 
was even during this half and chances were missed by both 

Minutes after the second half got under way, Mr. Landry 
tied the score on a close-in shot. Sensational saves were 
made by Mr. G.-T. and Lafleur during the next few minutes, 
but Mr. Landiy finally scored the clincher for the Old Boys 
just before the final whistle. 

The game proved very exciting with Cowan, Higgins ii 
and Lafleur playing best for T.C.S. while Mr. Landry lead 
the formidable array of Old Boys. 

..T.C.S. — Lafleur, Thornton, Mitchell, Church, Martin, Adamson, 
Bateman, Aitcheson, Cowan, Higgins ii, Bingham. 

Old Boys — ^Butterfield, Wilding, Williams, Mitchell, Denny, Hylton, 
Spencer, Adamson, Brewer, Mr. Landry, Mr. Gwynne-Timothy. 



Also under the direction of Mr. Willmer, Middleside has 
done very well so far, winning both its games by substantial 

The team has shown a very strong defense, and Budge 
has played exceptionally well in goal. If the team continues 
playing the way it has in the games so far, a very success- 
ful season is in store for them. 

S.A.C. at T.C.S., September 24. Won 4-1. 

In their first game, Middleside showed promising spirit 
and drive in defeating St. Andrew's by a score of 4-1. T.C.S. 
kept the ball in the S.A.C. zone most of the game and were 
rewarded by two goals in each half. S.A.C. scored their only 
goal at the start of the second half after a scramble around 
the Trinity goal. Aitcheson tallied twice for T.C.S. while 
Hulse and deWatteville each scored once. 

Crozier played well for S.A.C, while Hulse and Mason 
were best for T.C.S. 

TJ.C.C. at T.C.S., October 1. Won 2-0. 

The Middleside eleven showed continued good play in 
their second game of the season as they defeated Upper 
Canada 2-0. Heywood gave T.C.S. the lead in the second 
half, breaking away to score on a high shot to the corner 
of the net. Although U.C.C. h,ad a slight edge for the rest 
of the half, they were unable to get past Budge, and the 
School went into the second half with a one goal lead. 

Jackson put the School two up as he put one in after a 
sustained attack around the Upper Canada goal. U.C.C. was 
unable to score and the good defensive work of Mason and 
Wells, plus excellent goal-tending by Budge, gave the team 
a well deserved shutout. 

The following have represented Middleside in their two 
games so far: Budge (goal), Wilson, Mason, Molson, Wells, 
Hulse, Heywood, Jackson, Aitcheson, Howe, deWatteville, 
Martin, Coleman, Blackburn. 



Littleside is being coached again this year by Mr. 
Dening, and Cowan and Scowen have been elected Captain 
and Vice-Captain. In their only game to date, Littleside 
lost to U.C.C., but we look forward to the return game and 
wish the team good luck. 

U.C.C. at T.C.S., October 4. Lost 3-0. 

Littleside played host to U.C.C. in their first game of 
the season. The play was very even through most of the 
first half, but U.C.C. took the lead on a goal in the later 
minutes and led 1-0 at half time. At the start of the second 
half, U.C.C. drove in again and made the score 2-0. T.C.S. 
tried desperately to score but were unsuccessful, and failed 
to stop another goal by Upper Canada in the last few minutes 
that made the final score 3-0. 

T.C.S. — Cowan ii (Captain), Scowen ( Viee-Capt. ) , Mitchell ii, Col- 
msji ii, Fairbaim, Savage, Samuel, Saksena, Beattie, Borden, Wother- 


The second annual tennis tournament was held at the 
Toronto Cricket Club on September 20. Due to weather 
conditions, only three courts were available at the cricket 
club, so the doubles matches were played at U.C.C. Lafleur 
A. and Kells were the School's singles players winning one 
match each, while Thornton and Bogert made a good doubles 
team winning two of their three contests. We extend our 
congratulations to Captain Tommy Jones and the winning 
Ridley team and thank those people who helped make the 
meet such a great success.

Rugger, this year, has gained a firmer foothold on the 
playing fields of T.C.S. We would, first of all, like to thank 


Mr. Gwynne-Timothy and Mr. Willmier for giving up so 
much of their Sunday mornings in the interests of the game. 
This year we find many more people genuinely interested 
in the game than in previous years, and we hope that de- 
spite knocks and bruises, people are deriving a real pleasure 
from playing. It is hoped that the interest in the game may 
be kept alive so that in the near future we may produce 
enough keen players to represent the School in intra-club

Once again we welcome our New Boys to the Junior 
School. May their time with us be both happy and profit- 

Our very best wishes go to the Junior School boys who 
are starting out in the Senior School this year. 

The annual Fall picnic seemed to be especially success- 
ful. Possibly this was due to the innovation of having buses 
to transport us this year. At any rate, everybody seemed to 
have a good time even if some boys did have difficulty in 
starting their fires ! Strange to relate, the weather was very 
much pleasanter than for our Spring picnic. 

The Hallowe'en Party is to take place after the Mid- 
Term Break and we expect great things in the way of cos- 


There stands in the httle-known resort of Tadoussac an 
old church which was built in the Seventeenth Century. It 
occupies a prominent position on the top of a hill looking out 
over Tadoussac Bay to the St. Lawrence River. 

This church is built of wood and the walls are painted 
white. The roof is red and on it rests a small steeple. The 
bell for the steeple was brought out from France and is only 
heard on very special occasions. 

The interior of the church is very plain. It contains 
only an altar, some wooden pews and, in one corner, a table 
on which there are many candles burning. On the walls 
there are a few paintings of Christ and the Virgin Mary. 

It is a very small church and services are very seldom 
held here, but it attracts the attention of many tourists.

The sea sweeps against the rocks 

Like thunder which keeps on rolling forever. 

The spray lifts and shapes into different forms 


As if the deep, greenish-blue mass of water has come to life. 
Far out towards the horizon the sea rises and falls 
And blends with the brightness of the sun.

This summer, up in Northern Quebec, I had a very in- 
teresting trip down a gold mine. It was a low-grade gold 
mine in a small town north-east of Noranda. 

Stepping into an elevator, we dropped to the first level. 
Then we got out and walked into a tunnel with the only 
light coming from our flashUghts. Then we came upon men 
drilling into the rock to place blasting powder. From there 
we went on and saw many interesting things. Later we went 
deeper to the other levels. Throughout the morning I 
climbed down five hundred feet of ladders. 

From time to time we would hear a boom and a gust of 
wind would rush through the tunnel. At one time the gas 
from an explosion was so strong that we had to wait at a 
dead-end for some time. The farthest down I went was to 
the sixth level, which was 725 feet. Down at that level it 
was surprisingly cold although above on the surface it was 
very hot. 

After about two hours we went to the surface again, 
finishing a very exciting morning.

A merry-go-round goes round and round. 
The horses are bright and happy and gay, 
While out of it comes a most beautiful sound. 
As it goes round and round all through the day. 

The children each chmb up on a horse. 
After they've paid their fare, of course, 


They love to go around and around, 
'Till they have to alight on the ground.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful cities in the 
world with its harbours and lovely beaches. The Sugar Loaf 
is one of its wonders; there is a cable car that runs from 
sea level to a terrific height. There is also the "Corcovado," 
which is a tremendous statue of Jesus on the cross and 
at night it lights up so that people can see it from miles 

In 1500 when the Portuguese founded Rio, King John VI 
planted some palm trees and they are standing today in the 
Botanical Gardens. If you walk in one of the little side 
streets and look into the shop windows you will find that 
there are many interesting articles; for instance, dolls of 
many kinds. In the sunset you will see the palm trees 
slowly waving and all is quiet again.

If there is anything more beautiful yet sombre, drab 
yet enlightened than a cave, I have never yet seen it. For 
it can be truly said of a cave that Nature has been "hiding 
her light under a bushel". 

The dark comers of a cave, when lighted up, reveal 
beauty man can never hope to surpass. The greatest sculptor 
could not really make a work like a stalactite, those wild, 
colourful, pointed pillars hanging from a cave's ceiling. I 
would not blame an artist for envying the colours and pat- 
terns that Nature paints in the odd corners of a cave. 

Yes, here is beauty, but besides that, here is a chal- 
lenge — a challenge to see this beauty and to explore and

What a strange place the world would be without birds ! 
We take for granted the beauty and usefulness of our 
feathered friends. We should admire their beauty. The soft 
or brilliant colours of our birds are hke those taken from 
the paint-box of an artist. All the day the symphony of 
their glorious music is heard. The Canada Geese on the 
wing, like a wedge of aeroplanes, are a promise of Spring 
and a warning of Winter. Have you ever watched the Cock 
o' the North di'umming his way through the forest, keeping 
tall trees healthy and free from harmful insects? Nature's 
feathered helpers, bright and gay, should be loved and con-

It was a bright summer's afternoon as I rambled along 
the bank of a mill stream. As I came around a river bend, 
a fair-sized pond lay in front of me. It was enclosed by a 
ring of lush vegetation, a few lily pads around the outlet; 
and a cluster of reeds surrounded its farthest banks. An old 
wooden mill lay at the end of the pond. The wheel was still 
turning, although the mill was abandoned. Water was tum- 
bling over it fed by a trough which brought water from a 
tiny fall behind the old, ivy-covered building. It was prob- 
ably once a flour mill, but is now just one of the many 
country landmarks of the old pioneer days.

The light is fading slowly as the green canoe glides 
swiftly but noiselessly through the dark, silent water. The 
canoe slips into its mooring place and soon the occupants 
are standing watching the sun fade slowly behind the Laur- 
entian mountains. 

The sky is now one moving mass of ever-changing colour 
while the water reflects this perfectly as a mirror. The deep 
purple blends perfectly with the velvety tones of yellow 
and dark red. Like a huge ball of red fire, the sun sinks 
majestically behind the horizon. Darkness falls like a cur- 
tain while in the woods the whip-poor-will starts his eerie 
cry, and near the water a young fawn drinks daintily from 
a tiny stream. In a last dying effort the sun sends up one 
tiny finger of hght, and then a cloak of velvety darkness 
falls and silence reigns.

Co-Captains of Rugby : D. E. Cape, P. C. A. E. Jennings. 

Only two half -colours survived from last year's squad 
and we have had to build from the ground up. 

At the moment the squad is lacking in experience and 
this was especially evident in our first game which we lost 
to Lakefield. 

The squad is working hard and should improve as the 
season goes on. 


A new system has been put into force this year and 
seems to be meeting with general approval. 

The soccer players have all been divided into teams 
which play a series of league games. The soccer team to 
represent the School will be chosen from the best players 


in tiie league. In this way the younger players are getting a 
great deal more experience by playing with better players. 
It is hoped that this will improve our soccer in the years 
to come.

Word of Mr. McCullagh's sudden death on August 5 was 
a terrible shock to his family and friends, and to countless 
others who knew something of the responsible place he held 
in Canada's public life. He was a young man at the height 
of his powers and his loss is therefore all the more grievous, 
and a shattering blow to all who realised his almost unlimited 
resources to achieve great things. 

The amazing story of his short career and the extra- 
ordinary ability he showed in so many ways is well known. 
He was a man of dynamic energy, a quick and penetrating 
mind and an unusual ability to grasp the essential in a com- 
plex situation. Then he acted. 

In the first years of the war many of the papers in the 
United States were isolationist and anti-British. George 
McCullagh was worried about this, thought it over, and then 
decided to act. He obtained an appointment with President 
Roosevelt "for twenty minutes only" yet the President kept 
him for an hour, and then for lunch and more discussion. 
He then went to England to see Mr. Churchill, armed with 
a personal note from the President urging Mr. Churchill to 
give his support to Mr. McCullagh's plan. Rather grudgingly 
at first, Mr. Churchill complied, and for the next twelve 
months or two years groups of American editors were flown 
to England, often received by Mr. Churchill, and always con- 
ducted on a tour of the British war effort. When they re- 
turned to the United States they were loud in their praises 
of Britain, her leaders, and the war effort in general. Opinion, 
especially in the Mid West, was, over the months, changing 
from isolationist and anti-British to one of support for the 


Commonwealth against the Nazi menace. Mr. McCullagh's 
plan played an important part in this change. Only a few of 
his friends knew what he had done and little mention has 
been made of it. 

He was a natural leader with an exceptional courage of 
his convictions and his foresight sometimes was remarkable. 
Six months before the invasion of Europe he told the writer 
where he thought our troops would try to land and he gave 
his reasons; it was the exact place. E]arly in 1946 he made 
the statement that the Russians, then our brave allies, 
would "within five years" be a worse menace than the 

Despite the prominent part he played in public affairs, 
and the world leaders he knew almost intimately, Mr. Mc- 
Cullagh never lost sight of the common man, his responsibi- 
lities and his needs; the ideals of democracy were to him 
almost a religion, and he could not abide conceit or false 
pride. He had made his way up the ladder of business suc- 
cess not rung by rung but in several fantastic leaps, but he 
always had an understanding for those still on the bottom 

Those who knew George McCullagh at all well and who 
heard him bare his soul on occasions knew he had a deeply 
loyal and friendly nature but that he was seldom really 
content because of his impassioned desire to move the pieces 
on the checker board of life more quickly than he was allowed 
to move them; it was often frustrating to a mind so able 
and so discerning. 

As a School we shall ever be indebted to him for the 
time he took from his very busy life to give us the benefit 
of his counsel, to support so generously all our enterprises 
and especially for the gift of our Rink which he built in 
memory of his friend Peter Campbell. 

Many generations of T.C.S. boys who did not know 
George McCullagh personally will realize how much happier 
their school days have been made because of his generosity 
and thoughtfulness. We shall never forget him; our deep 
sympathy goes out to his wife and the members of his family. 



Mr. Matthews had been ill for several years and his 
death on September 20 was not unexpected. In the period 
between the wars he was prominent in Toronto in business 
and politics and he gave unsparingly of his time and talents 
to his church and to the promotion of the game of cricket. 
In 1926 he was elected to the House of Commons as a Con- 
servative and the Hon. R. B. Bennet appointed him Minister 
of National Revenue in 1930. 

Always a keen cricketer, Mr, Matthews did everything 
in his power to encourage the playing of the game and for 
many years he was President of the Toronto Cricket Club. 
In 1936 he took a Canadian team to England where it gave 
a good account of itself ; the members of that team will never 
forget the tour or the generosity of Mr. Matthews. 

For many years Mr. Matthews had been a member of 
the Governing Body; he gave much thought to the School 
and its needs and often visited us. When times were hard, 
in the days before the war, he made a most generous dona- 
tion to the School funds to be used only for granting bonuses 
to masters; he was very conscious of the invaluable service 
rendered to youth by good masters and he knew their 
material rewards were slim. He supported all the School 
efforts most generously and seldom missed a meeting of the 
Governing Body until his hearing became difficult. At one 
time he was on the Building Committee and he made several 
trips to Port Hope, spending the days going over all the 
School property, a tiring task for one who was no longer 
young. On one of these occasions it was decided that some- 
how a new Tuck should be built as soon as possible ; the day 
was rainy and the old tuck room was crowded with wet 
and muddy boys making the rude and bare furnishings even 
less attractive. 

On four or five occasions Mr, Matthews asked for full 
information about the financing of the School; he was most 
anxious to make it possible for any promising boys to attend 
T.C.S., and especially boys from his home centres of Lindsay, 


Peterborough and Toronto. He could not understand why 
T.C.S. was still denied the benefit of Leonard awards and he 
realized that the School had done everything possible to help 
worthy lads. His will now makes most generous provision 
for the establishment, at some future date, of the R. C. 
Matthews awards to be in the form of scholarships and bur- 
saries and also for improving the scale of masters' salaries. 
Boys in large numbers will some day be deeply indebted to 
Mr. Matthews for this wonderful benefaction. 

The deep sympathy of the School goes out to Mrs. 
Matthews and her grandson, Craig Somerville ('31-'41) ; 
Mrs. Matthews has always been devoted to the best interests 
of the School and we realise how much we owe to her and 
her husband. 


Mr. John Labatt died suddenly on July 8 at his summer 
home near London. He came to T.C.S. in 1891 and remained 
until 1896; taking a full part in the life of the School, he 
was respected for his good judgment and stability and al- 
ways could be counted on to give his best. He went on to 
McGill and graduated in 1900 with a B.Sc. degree. He joined 
the family business in 1900 and in 1915 he became President, 
retiring only two years ago after fifty years of service. 

Always keenly interested in sports, he gave generously 
to provide facilities for them in his home city, London, and 
in countless other ways he and his brother Hugh supported 
all the worthwhile efforts of his community. It has been said 
that if all companies in Canada were led by such public- 
spirited men there would be no criticism of free enterprise. 
He took a personal interest in all his employees and as a 
result the whole organization worked together smoothly and 
happily as a team. 

Though it was not possible for him to visit the School 
often he never forgot us and always liberally supported our 
efforts. The deep sympathy of the School goes out to his 
wife and family, and to his brother Hugh, a Governor of the 



The Senior Member of our Governing Body, Judge 
Dennistoun, died in Winnipeg on October 11. He had been 
a Governor of T.C.S. since 1902 and last September 5 he and 
Mrs. Dennistoun marked the sixtieth anniversary of their 

He was born in Peterborough and practiced law there 
in his early years. In 1907 he moved to Winnipeg as Coimsel 
for the Bank of Commerce and soon made his mark there 
in legal circles. 

He enlisted in 1914, on the outbreak of war, and was 
commissioned in the Fort Garry Horse ; later he served with 
the 53rd Battalion and rose to the rank of Colonel on the 
General Staff. 

In 1918 he was created a C.B.E. and in the same year 
he was appointed a Judge of the Court of Appeal in Manitoba. 
For twenty-eight years he was a member of that important 

In Winnipeg he took a keen and leading interest in the 
community and church affairs and he constantly endeavoured 
to make life a worthier thing. 

Judge Dennistoun's three sons. Jack, Jim and Peel all 
came to T.C.S. ; Jack was killed in the Flying Corps in 1916 
and Jim died a few years ago in Montreal. 

The School sends its deep sympathy to Mrs. Dennistoun 
and the members of her family.

Whatever purpose you have in mind when you take a 

book out from the library, whether for enjoyment, study, 

or merely reference, the benefit derived is invaluable. When 

a book is read, the fact that it may be cleverly written 

arouses admiration as well as interest, and a closer scrutiny 

of the style will reveal the cimning devices the author uses 

to convey his meaning. 

Do lots of reading, it is something you will never regret. 

Consider the fact that the time which is passing now 

will not pass again, except in memory. How is that memory 

going to present things? Life lies ahead of us, we are being 

prepared for it, but are we going to be able to look back 

when we are eighty and feel satisfied with what we have 

done? We are responsible for the destiny of our lives — we 

can be successes or failures, and the foundations are being 

built now. ^E.AJD. 




When Christmas comes, and evergreens 
Stand out against the sparkling snow, 
When we in festive garb shall go 
Among the joys of Christrmis scenes. 
The tinselled trees, and bright wrapped gifts, 
The bright smiles of the holidays; 
When we before our grates shall laze, 
And dream, and cast an eye that shifts 
From the present to the past, 

Shall we remember the wise men 
And their following of the star; 
The shepherds a^ they watched in fear 
And the stable and manger then? 
And shall we remember Christ's loss. 
And the teachings which he put forth; 
And his life and his deeds on earth. 
The pardon he gave on the cross 
As he died in saving us? 

—J. R. deJ. J 





On October 19, the Rev. R. S. K. Seeley, M.A., D.D„ 
Provost of Trinity College, Toronto, spoke in the Chapel. 
He told the School about the influence and importance of 
the Bible in the modern world and about its early history 
in England. 

Provost Seeley began his talk by telling us that three 
weeks ago a new translation of the Bible was published. 
Since then hundreds of thousands of copies have been sold, 
and many reviews written. In fact, no other book has sold 
as many copies in its first edition. 

Provost Seeley said that before 1500 the Bible was 
written in only three languages, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. 
In 1528 William Tyndale translated the Bible into English 
and was later burnt at the stake for heresy. However, 
in 1538, Henry VIII ordered the Bible to be installed in 
every parish church in England and encouraged the people 
to read it. 


Following this, and principally during the Seventeenth 
Century, the speaker continued, there was a long period 
when the Bible was considered an infallible guide to Man's 
every problem and passages were taken from it at face value. 
Innocent people were burned as witches because of the 
quotation "Thou shall not suffer a witch to live." Because 
of this impractical and blind homage paid to it, many people 
tui^ned away from the Bible. They thought of it as out-dated 
and not adaptable for use in modern times. "Is there,"' asked 
Provost Seeley, "any message for us in the Bible to-day?" 

The Bible is not one book but a collection of sixty-six 
books written by different people, centuries apart. "Many 
of us," the speaker stated, "are so familiar with the Bible 
that we forget who wrote it." How could these people, most 
of them common labourers, write such excellent prose and 
poetry. The answer lies in their relationship to God. 

We should read the Bible for that purpose. It gives the 
answer to man's problems — to trust in God. "Read the Bible 
and see for yourselves," Provost Seeley concluded. "This 
new translation should be much easier to understand." 


On November 9, we were honoured to have as our guest 
in the Memorial Chapel, Canon W. H. Davison of Montreal, 
who gave us an exceptionally interesting sermon on Remem- 
brance Day. 

He spoke of the tremendous symbolism that is asso- 
ciated with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Westminster 
Abbey. While mentioning the proud record of T.C.S. Old 
Boys in two World Wars, he pointed out that our Memorial 
Chapel is a fitting tribute to them. 

Canon Davison then went on to say how we should offer 
our thanks to God for all those who fought so valiantly for 
us and especially for those who so unselfishly gave their 
lives. He added that we should follow their example of 
courage and loyalty, remembering that we are the bene- 


ficiaries in the end. We were reminded that in the time 
shortly after the death of Jesus, it was the Saints who were 
the Christian warriors. 

Security was described by the Canon as being our first 
consideration in life today. A good religious background is 
far more important, for one must serve as a Christian no 
matter what vocation he chooses. We must have religion, 
for instance, in school life, and we must listen for God's call. 
In other words, the Canon concluded, we must be "Strong 
in the Lord." 


On November 16, the Reverend Paul Sterling, Minister 
of St. Andrew's Church, Toronto, spoke in the Chapel. He 
discussed the request, "Sir, we would see Jesus." 

There are difficulties, Mr. Sterling stated, that prevent 
us from seeing Jesus. The first is that he lived two thousand 
years ago, which makes it impossible for us to see him 
physically. We must also remember that the law and cus- 
toms were different in Jesus' time. Women were considered 
inferior to men; Jesus had no problems to overcome like 
atom bombs and company strikes. Our conception of him 
is so different to modern standards that it is hard to visualize 
what he would do if he were alive today. The second dif- 
ficulty is that the few records there are of his life are filled 
with discrepancies and deal only with his last years and 
not his boyhood. 

The speaker declared that the Church has portrayed 
Christ as a God and not a man. However, he lived on earth 
as a man and set down certain principles for us to use, 
although we live in such a different world today from his 
world of two thousand years ago. 

If we see Jesus, we see what God is really like. Before 
Jesus came, the Jews believed that God was a jealous God 
who had to be kept humoured by sacrifices. Even today, the 
Reverend Mr. Sterling said, many people have queer con-

ceptions about him. Some believe that Jesus met his death 
to appease God's wrath; in other words God deliberately 
tortured His son to death. This is a misconception of the 
nature of God. "Those who see Jesus are those who know 
God," concluded the speaker. 




Mr. Douglas Higgins has sent four pepper grinders to 
the School or the use of Senior boys. They have the in- 
signia of the R.F.C., R.A.F., R.N.A.S., and R.C.A.F. and are 
proving a welcome addition to our meals. 


Mr. H. G. Norman has given the School a bit of ore 
with a large amount of gold in it, plainly visible. It came 
from the Cadillac Mine. 


On Thursday, October 30, the School was fortunate in 
having Mrs. Davidson once more, who, in an excellent 
speech, soon cleared up the confusion in our minds con- 
cerning the United States presidential campaign and the 
more complicated aspects of their system of choosing the 
leader of the country. She also gave us a vivid picture of 
both Adlai Stevenson and Dwight Eisenhower, showing how 


they differed from one another when compared on political 
grounds. As usual, we enjoyed her interesting speech very 
much, and we are all looking forward to seeing her back 
at T.C.S. sometime in the near future. 


On Sunday, November 9, there was a parade to the Port 
Hope Cenotaph to commemorate Remembrance Day. The 
Cadet Corps marched up to St. John's Church where it joined 
the official parade. From there the parade proceeded down 
the main street to the Cenotaph, where a short service was 
held in honour of those who died for their country in World 
Wars One and Two, and in Korea. Flight Sergeant Mc- 
Caughey with a few selected buglers sounded the Reveille 
and the Last Post. 

The Parade was a great success, with the boys handling 
themselves very well at this stage of their training. 


On November 21st we had the pleasure of having 
Lieutenant Robin Hughes of the Royal Canadian Navy visit 
the School and show us two extremely interesting films. 

The first movie, made during the past summer, showed 
clearly the life of the sailor and airman in the R.C.N, both 
at work and at play. The film was centred about the aircraft- 
carrier Magnificent and we soon realized what a huge fight- 
ing potential such a ship was. 

The Atomic bomb's horrible power was unveiled vividly 
before our eyes in "Operation Crossroads", the second of 
the two films. We saw the amazing but frightening pictures 
of both the above water and underwater explosions, and the 
tremendous damage they inflicted on target ships. 

Both movies were enjoyed immensely by all and we are 
deeply grateful to Lieutenant Hughes for showing them to 
us and for answering the many questions we had in our 
minds about the films and the navy.

The first session of the Senior Debating Society was 
held on November 8 in preparation for a future debate with 
Ridley. The topic was: "Resolved that the inter-nation 
Olympic games create international tension rather than 
good will." First speaker for the government, John Gordon, 
stated that the human nature of the contestants creates 
tension. The Government's second speaker, M. C. dePencier, 
discussed some of the events in the 1952 games and J. A. 
Cran, the third speaker for the Government, said that much 
tension was created by the press which tends to exaggerate 
unpleasant feelings and incidents. The Opposition was com- 
posed of R. Heenan, J. R. Ryley and D. L. Seymour. Heenan 
brought out the opposition's strongest point by comparing 
the necessity of the Olympic games with the United Nations 
where people of all nations come together. 

The majority of the House sided with the Opposition; 
liowever, the judges, with Mr. Humble as chairman, awarded 
the debate to the Government on the basis of its stronger 
aigument and better presentation. Cran and Heenan were 
the best speakers of the evening. 


The first inter-school debate of the year was held on 
Saturday, November 15, in the Hall. The topic before the 
House was "Resolved that the International Olympic games 



have done more to create tension between the participant 
nations than good feeling." Representing the Government 
were J. R. M. Gordon, J. A. Cran and M. C. dePencier of 
T.C.S. and the speakers for the Opposition were D. Towers, 
D. Cork and B. Glassco of Ridley College. 

The Government's case was opened by Gordon who, by 
recalling the history of the games, showed how their grand 
ideals have been perverted by human weaknesses. Cran, the 
second speaker for the Government, gave instances that 
created bad feeling in previous games and depicted the 
whole issue as being the fault of the press. dePencier con- 
cluded by discussing the recent Olympics and pointing out 
how the games were no longer on an individual scale but on 
a national one in which a point system to determine the 
"winner" is used. 

The Opposition from Ridley tried throughout their 
speeches to belittle the Government's arguments but failed, 
however, to make many telling points. The best speech of 
the evening, it was generally agreed, was delivered by Glassco 
of B.R.C., whose "summing-up" was impressive. 

After the judges had considered their decision, Mr- 
Stuart Ryan, their chairman, gave the two debating teams 
several useful suggestions concerning style. He remarked 
on how difficult the debate had been to judge, and how they 
had given the decision to the Government because its con- 
clusive case outweighed the better speaking of the Opposi- 






It is with great pleasure that we again present what 
the critics claim to be the most unique and informative 
literary column to be found in any printed magazine. 

SUDS and GINGER deserve primary mention for their 
precision timing at breakfast — no lates for a month but they 
still get up at twenty-eight past .... BLUIT'S elder brother 
and PHIP are in search of a new cook and hot plate to meet 
the increasing demand at their new restaurant .... 

Poor Trinity house has been plagued with a blaring 
oboe, flood,s and frequent conferences between WES and 
SKIP who discuss their lady-loves at great length. Apparent- 
ly SKIP ended his affair with a very explicit letter but WES 
still writes and sends queer presents. Elsewhere the sweet- 
heart picture is rather promising. EDDY has seen several 
ROBINS on his window-sill — Could it be? .... We all hope 
HENRY'S ring was in time! BAMBINO'S sweater-coat has 
made quite a hit but his room-mate's Mexican wardrobe is 
even more colourful than it was .... Mr. Dening's apart- 
ment has had several alterations since BUCKEYE used his 
strength to put a hole through the wall . . . observers have 
suggested that MOO'S teddy bear which led Bigside Foot- 
ball to victory over the soccer team should have been intro- 
duced earlier .... BIN BIN has been in the doghouse lately 
because his hamming antics have caused considerable dis- 
comfort to radio fans .... speaking of radios, the Prefects' 
radio station is a great success but GEELUX has requested 
a new needle and a change in disc jockeys. TONY and BEV 
are planning to give the School all night power by a system 
of aerials and double plugs stretching from their room .... 
also to put IKE'S "library" on a commercial basis. LAYCOE 


and the LOUIES have great plans for New Year's in Prince- 
ton — the best of luck to all Bigside in their State-side tour 
this winter. 

In closing, we of the Record Staff wish you all a very 
merry Christmas and hope you do lots of queer things over 
the holidays worthy of mention in this our highly esteemed 
literary column. 



Being gentlemen of good lineage and worthy character, 
we would first of all like to extend our congratulations to 
the Lower House for the winning of several intra-House 
competitions which, we must all admit, were purely acci- 
dental and Phyrric by nature. I understand that craftsmen 
have been put to work reinforcing the trophy shelves on 
our side of the hall to bear the increased weight expected 
on them in the future. Brent is complaining that they were 
held at a disadvantage when the soccer game was played 
in the dark. This, however, goes to show how adaptable we 
are to adverse conditions and we go on to announce that 
we are prepared to play any sport, even polo and the such- 
like "in thunder, lightning, or in rain" and if there is a 
goal concerned, you can be sure that we will put Mr. G.T. 
in it after his more than spectacular show during the 
masters' game. 

It may be said that Bethune House appreciates the 
finer things in life. This statement can be backed up by 
the fact that Bonny may be seen, from time to time, poring 
over his new, revised edition of the Bible and that pate de 
foie gras is frequently served in room 101. While we are 


on the subject, I might mention the growth of private enter- 
prise along the flats in the form of Phip's and John's super- 
market to which many Brentites bring their pennies. 

When history has been written and the poets have ex- 
hausted their talents in writing songs of praise, there will 
still be much to be said in favour of our great House and 
its doings above and beyond mere mortal achievements such 
as those of our neighbours east of us, beyond the pale of 


Brent has already sent a good many great men into the 
world. Men who formerly lived the life we do now have 
gone out from the House and made a name for themselves. 
Are we, the present of Brent, going to let down our pre- 
decessors? Since such a question requires considerable 
thought, while you are thinking over your future, we quote 
from an address by John Gordon to a Timbucktoo Old Boys' 
reunion in the year 1980. 

" . . . . John Board is now an elegant, cigar-chomping 
Toronto haberdasher but still keeps in touch with Kit 
Cowan who has written many novel books on "How to play 
basketball." Tim Ryley has become a prominent U.S. states- 
man, and it is rumoured he will be running against Gen. 
Eisenhower's son in the next election. Humphrey Bogert 
and his accordian have "come up in the world," and are 
now featured in place of the four lads appearing with 
Johnny Ray. Jim Dunlop has now opened his completely

By now, perhaps, you have visualized your future 
appearance and occupation — compare it with those formerly 
mentioned. Perhaps you will not reach their degree of suc- 
cess, but being Brentites, you are bound to succeed in one 
way or another. If you are still not sure of yourself, com- 
pare yourself to one of those Bethune oddities — the result, 
my comrades, would be such a marked contrast, and your 
confidence would increase to such an extent, you would 
succeed not only as Old Boys of the School, but as members 
of this royal House by joining your predecessors in setting 
an example superior to that of Bethime. 




One of the most controversial and important matters 
in world affairs to-day is the rearmament of Germany. Some 
think that we must rearm Germany at any cost to defend 
Europe against Russian aggression. They argue that not 
to do so will leave a dangerous vacuum which may be filled 
by Communism. This is quite true, although the danger 
seems over-rated. But by rearming Germany we are taking 
grave risks. If the army of occupation is withdrawn, who 
will be able to prevent the rise of a new dictatorship? The 
(Germans have never been very enthusiastic about demo- 
cratic government. Their well-known love of discipline and 
efficiency has invariably led them to accept a dictator rather 
than rule themselves. 

After World War One, the Allies insisted upon the com- 
plete disarmament of Germany. Despite the barriers im- 
posed upon them, the Germans built up their industries until 
they were again a great power. Also, wishing to avenge their 
previous defeat, they permitted Hitler to become their lead- 
er. The result was one of the bloodiest, most destructive 
wars in history. It had come about not because of, but in 
spite of, our efforts to keep Germany from regaining her 
miUtary predominance. 

After the war we claimed that we were going to wipe 
out all traces of Nazism and that we were going to keep 


Germany demilitarised for at least twenty years. But to- 
day many of the political leaders of Germany are ex-Nazis. 
Several prominent war criminals have been released and 
help run the government. If we entrust Grerman democracy 
to such men as these, only one thing can happen. A new dic- 
tator will arise who will play off the West against Russia, 
strengthening the Germans all the while. Hitler even pre- 
dicted in "Mein Kampf" that the Russians and the West 
would become enemies and in the resulting struggle Ger- 
many would rise again to dominate the world. To date we 
are doing exactly what he predicted although even he may 
not have expected us to be so naive as to rearm Germany. 
After the First World War, we tried to curb Germany, yet 
look at the result. If we continue with our present plans, it 
is more than likely that in the near future Gtermany will hold 
the balance of power and will be able to attain a position 
of dominance from which she may start another campaign 
of world conquest.

Was his life secure? He had all he wanted — at least, 
there was very little more he needed. Yet there was that 
little intangible something which was lacking, that little ex- 
tra which would make him completely happy — and yet, had 
he a right to yearn for more? Was he not making the most 
of what he had ? He frowned in perplexity — he did not know. 
Then he wondered what he looked like from the outside — 
what did people think of him? But this did not worry him 
too much, it was his own definition which counted; but 
there again, he could not define himself. And his ambitions 
.... he wanted to be great, but would he be? 

Strain of unlimited sweetness rocked his boundless 
mind; they diffused into his innermost being so that he did 
not realize the melody, only that unutterable consecrated 
sweetness. Wavy stairs beckoned to him, slowly he went up 


.... up further, faster .... he was rushing up at a dizzy 
hurtling pace — that essence of glory — that pure, undefiled, 
glorious glory — it gripped him, it turned his soul to fire — 
he was in a rage of beauty. The present was no longer there, 
only that flow of emotion. A trickling corridor swept him 
to the very height of ambition, to a dazzling, thunderous 
triumph. A cascade of majestic splendour announced the 
grandeur and the joyous solemnity that marked his pride. 
There in all its self-esteem, all its empty bearing, all its un- 
hampered haughtiness, was his innermost self. He wanted 
to sing, to shout out to all the v/orld that he was he. He was 
above the rabble, supreme, unrivalled; he was pure and un- 
defiled, white; he was arrogance and dignity and pride and 
prestige; he was .... 

The concerto had ended. He got up slowly, turned the 
gramophone off, put the records away. He frowned .... 
life .... secure?

Mexico first made my acquaintance at six in the even- 
ing when Pan American's Flight 501 from Houston gave a 
terrific jolt and we were told to fasten our safety belts as 
we would soon leave the coast and fly into rough weather 
over the Mexican mountains. It seems that Mexico, from 
the very beginning, was somewhat averse to the arrival of 
another Greengo or Norte Americano. I found upon land- 
ing, however, that her people are not always as averse to 
Greengoes as her climate because a smiling throng stood 
ahead of me clapping loudly. I straightened my tie, smiled 
at Eddy my companion, and prepared to acknowledge this 
display of affection but was very taken aback to find that 
it all ceased when I approached. I later learnt that this was 
a welcoming committee for "Lions", who were holding a 
convention in the city. Not only had I failed as a lion, I 
also had the misfortune to be a student and was forced to 


wait until the very last to go through the customs. I had 
long ago lost my friend who was lucky enough to be a 
Mexican citizen and go first. After the customs men had 
stamped my passport until the leaves had to be repaired 
with staples, I saw Eddy across several barriers. When I 
started towards him, I was immediately hauled back for 
a certificate of salubridad, whatever that is. 

Upon reaching my hosts' car, I sank back for a few 
minutes' well-earned rest and when I could again think 
clearly, I took notice of the peculiar sights about me. At 
every comer were immaculately dressed traffic policemen 
who seemed to do nothing but stand under a ridiculous little 
blue umbrella upon which was written "Use sus frenos" as 
if no one knew where his brake pedal was. I say ridiculous 
umbrella because as soon as it started to rain, the poUce 
seemed to bolt for shelter. One day I saw a policeman run 
from his blue umbrella into a door at the base of the National 
Independence Colum.n. Meanwhile the traffic was forced to 
fend for itself during the rainstorm. 

Strangely enough, I consented to venture into "el cen- 
tre" or central section of the city again next morning. My 
friend and I decided to take a second class bus, not realiz- 
ing that "survival of the fittest" could not be more aptly ap- 
plied to anything. These camiones go at terrific speeds and 
manage to hit each of the many open manholes which abound 
in the city streets. When I could manage to see out of the 
window, I saw an impressive thoroughfare, whose beauty is 
absolutely lost if one has to travel on fifteen centavo buses. 
Every once in a while we gave a violent jerk first to the left, 
then to the right, as the bus swung around a glorietta, a 
group of fouf palm trees "beautifying" the intersections of 
main streets. I spent several hours as all good Greengoes 
should, shopping, sightseeing, saying how much better things 
are at home, asking stupid questions, and admiring such 
beautiful buildings as the Cathedral, the National Palace, 
and Bellas Artes, a fine opera house where critical Mexican 
audiences hear excellent reproductions of the world's great- 


est operas. Mexico's love of fine art is shown not only in 
the fact that her people tolerate nothing but the best at 
Bellas Artes, but also by the fact that some of the best 
hammered silver work and weaving is on sale on the side- 
walks of the capital for extremely low prices. Even Mexico's 
new skyscrapers do not seems as ugly as many I have seen 
further north. 

In the afternoon, we went to a movie. Herein lay my 
greatest astonishment. The movie theatres are enormous. It 
is as if some of Broadway's largest had been moved onto the 
Avenida Juarez. Some are ornate, some are ultra-modern, 
all are huge. This fact seems even more strange when we 
realize that fifty percent of the pictures shown are foreign 
language pictures. I could not tell you about the movie we 
saw, so engrossed was I in trying to read the Spanish sub- 
titles. I emerged speaking my first words of Spanish which 
brought on shouts of delight whenever I practised it. 

A week later we went to the bull fights. Mexico City is 
very proud of its bull ring, which they claim to be the largest 
in the world. I was not so impressed by the fighting, which 
in the opinion of my companion was not very good, as I 
was by an American woman who sat next to me. She had 
been to the fights the week before and, in spite of the fact 
that she claimed to hate every minute of it, she had come 
again. Every time the matador made a stab, she would let 
out a discreet little scream and turn aside. When I looked 
at her suddenly, I found her sitting forward on her seat 
with a bloodthirsty glint, regarding the final kill. Finding 
me watching her, she again turned her eyes away from the 
ring. I feel that it is northern pride and not sincerity which 
prompts us to dislike bull fights. 

My next struggle with this wild land was to eat a real 
Mexican meal. This event took place at some very beautiful 
caves about a hundred kilometers from the city. Just before 
lunch we passed through the lovely old city of Cuernavaca 
which has not yet been spoiled by tourists such as myself. 
I was very sorry, however, to see in the Zocalo or principal 


plaza, little shoe-shine boxes bearing signs saying that the 
owner was a member of the Cuernavaca shoe-shiners' union 
and would not permit a non-union member to practise his 
trade in the Zocalo. On reaching the caves, we seated our- 
selves at a board placed on trestles overlooking the canyon 
and a very energetic Indito bustled up to tell us what was 
being served. Since there was no choice, we had to take soup, 
chicken molle, and tortillas. The soup was excellent, al- 
though a little too spicy, and we ate it with rusty spoons 
but, for fear of offending the cook, we decided not to com- 
plain. The cook ran off with our soup bowls and brought 
us our chicken molle. I v/as sorry I had not kept my rusty 
spoon because we were supplied only with tortillas, round 
dirty grey pancake-looking things which, in spite of their 
somewhat leathery feeling, are very good. After several 
attempts to get the molle on the tortilla and from thence 
into my mouth, much to the amusement of my companions, 
I managed to taste the second course — I took no more. It 
was as if I had swallowed a cake of Grandma's lye soap. 
After two bottles of Mission orange, I could only croak that 
I was not hungry. It was a long time before my hostess 
could tempt my palate with some of her appetizing Mexican 
dishes and her patience deserves the utmost credit, for I 
returned to Canada with as much Mexican candy, fruit and 
sweetbreads as I could possible smuggle through the cus- 

My final week was spent in the superb resort of Aca- 
pulco where the water is nearly body temperature, and the 
salt air invigorating. The conventional "Having a wonderful 
time. Wish you were here" card would not satisfy even the 
poorest of letter writers. After my stay in Acapulco, I could 
only say, "Como Mexico, no hay dos!"

There he stood and watched the clouds. 

Black and foreboding; 

The dull sky cast a shadow 

Of gloom upon the earth. 

He listened to the rumble of the thunder 

And saw the lightning flash; 

The clouds opened and rain began to fall — 

Drenching the ground. 

There he stood and watched the smoke 

Rising black and thick. 

The charred ruins — aftermath 

Of war — repelled all life. 

He listened to the roar of distant guns 

And saw the bomb's exploding flash. 

The storm of battle raged still, on and on — 

Extinguishing the flame of life. 

The storm passed, the sun appeared 
And spread its light — like balm — 
Upon the earth. 

He looked up at the brightened sky 
And smiled 

The smoke and flames died down, 
Fearing death supreme below 
In the valley. 

He surveyed the scene around him 
And wept.

The sun shone brightly on the sapphire blue waters of 
the little alpine lake, and the wavelets broke up the re- 
flections so that it seemed as if as many crystal fairies were 
dancing on the waters. The alders growing along the creek 
which rushed noisily from the southern extremity of the 
lake had long since lost their golden leaves. The blue spruce 
stands took on a beautiful shade of dark green under the 
scintillating sunshine, and high above the lake the little 
white snowfields, nestled in the gray crags above the tim- 
berline, shone forth brightly in the morning's light. 

High above the peaks an eagle soared, sporting joyously 
in aerial castles-of-Spain. Hunting- was difficult now. The 
big hoary marmots had disappeared to hibernate in the 
warm security of their holes, hidden in the stony fastness 
of the rock slides. The mysterious plague had virtually wiped 
out the rabbits, and the big eagle knew little of the teeming 
little people who lived everywhere from the crags of the 
mountain to the depths of the swamps, from the lofty treetops 
to the subterranean mazes of the moles. The wildfowl had 
long since flown away southwards, promising to return if 
they survived the gauntlet of guns on the way. Now the 
eagle himself had made up his mind to wend his way south- 
ward until he came to a wintering ground which would 
capture his fancy. 

The young cougar was hungry, for he had been born 
in what the trappers call "The Year of No Rabbits." This 
comes once every eleven years or so, when a mysterious 
plague wipes them out. His mother had had a very hard 
time with her litter, for gone was the staple diet on which 
she was wont to feed her young. At first she had hunted 
the clumsy spruce grouse, but these had soon learned that 
a cougar was dangerous, and adopted a strictly arboreal 
life. Then the old one had been forced to turn to the nimble 
deer. True, these were the panther's legal game, but they 
were not for an old female with four cubs and no mate. In 
desperation one day she killed a new-born moose calf which 


she found in a beautiful alpine meadow. Soon afterwards, 
the cow moose happened along, and after a short battle, 
the cubs were left to fend for themselves. This youngster 
was the largest of the cubs. He had found a little meadow 
where the tiny tawny lemmings abounded, and for weeks 
he had slept close by and sated his hunger on the never- 
failing supply. Then the lemming had gone, and he was now 
fed by his own cleverness only, and consequently was hun- 


The beaver wondered, as he cut down another small 
alder for his winter food supply, why all the predators, large 
and small, were picking on him and his kin. Already he had 
lost two cubs to a thin coyote, strayed from the plains be- 
low. Another family in the colony had been wiped out by 
a mad little mink, crazed with hunger. Little did this patri- 
arch known of the hardships caused by the failure of the 
rabbits. Even he must feel the pinch, though indirectly. 

Then there was the man. He was a naturalist, and had 
known that the year of no rabbits was to come, so he had 
moved to the mountain, to a little cabin nestled at the edge 
of a clearing overlooking the lake. He had come not only 
to study the causes and effects of the rabbits' plague, but 
also to photograph the various inhabitants of the mountain 
and lake, and see what he could of their habits. Thus he had 
set up numerous feeding-stations, and had had unprecedented 
success in tempting the wily weasels with chopped venison. 
This was because the rabbit-eating weasels had been forced 
to rob sparrow's nests and chase the nimble squirrels and 
gophers. These made poor fare for the lazy little brutes 
who never exert themselves unless they have to. Thus they 
had come, in fair numbers, to the warm venison in the little 
box in the clearing. They soon became accustomed to the 
mysterious whirring which came from a bush close by. 

The day had been crisp, clear, and cold, the tempera- 
ture well below freezing. The dusk came, following the 
blazing glory of an autumn sunset. The full moon rose, 
bathing the ground below with its ripe radiance. Then to 


the north, a band of fleecy white clouds appeared, moving 
slowly southward, shining brightly in the moonlight. The 
moon, still low in the sky, was not immediately blotted out 
by the slowly moving clouds. The first few flakes fluttered 
freely to the frozen ground below, lit by the spot-light of 
the moon so that they were as many silver stars, floating 
through the star-lit sky. Then the snow came in earnest, 
blotting out everything. It deposited everywhere a foot- 
thick white blanket. Then, as silently as they had come, the 
clouds departed, leaving in their wake a transformed wilder- 
ness. The moon had gone, and the darkest hour of the night 
came, shutting out all but the sprinklings of stars in the 
spangled sky above. A deathly hush hung over the moun- 
tain; even the little elf owl was silent, where usually his soft 
whistling call was wont to wake all his haunts. Then slowly 
the eastern sky brightened, and soon the red blaze of sun- 
rise glowed over the prairies to the east. Life returned to 
the mountain as the nutcrackers woke all with their harsh 

The young cougar rose stiffly, stretched lazily, then 
started in surprise under the windfall where he had slept 
in comfort for the night. What had happened to the world? 
He stretched forth his nose gingerly, and touched the new 
white blanket. He drew it back sharply, with a startled 
grunt, for what he touched was not only cold, but very dis- 
gustingly wet. He would have gone back to sleep but the 
pangs of hunger drove him forth into the dazzling, trans- 
formed world. He went forth daintily, trying not to wet his 
feet. He had little luck for an hour or two; then suddenly 
he caught on the breeze the alluring scent of venison. Many 
a time in the later days of the fall he had come upon the 
entrails of a deer which the man had shot for food. Now 
the breeze told him that there was more to be had in the 
vicinity of the clearing. A little later he found, not the en- 
trails, but a whole haunch of succulent venison, but dan- 
gerously close to the man's cabin. In the short time that 
she was with them, the old lion had tried to teach her cubs 


the inveterate hate and fear she held for man. This was 
forgotten, however, as he fell to, and almost demolished the 
cut. He was vaguely puzzled, but not frightened, by a strange 
whirring sound which proceeded from a nearby cluster of 
cedars, and he jumped violently when it flashed at him from 
the bush. He faded quietly away and disappeared. 

The man chuckled to himself as the cougar slid away, 
but inwardly he was highly elated, for he had at last taken 
a first class film of a feeding mountain lion. This, coupled 
with the films of the weasels, would really give him some- 
thing to show to his colleagues. He was glad that the snow 
had come, for he could now ascertain whether any rabbits 
had survived on the mountain. Also, it would bring the 
children of the mountain ever closer to his door ; his cameras 
would be busy again, and he would be able to preserve more 
of his experiences on the mountain. 

The beaver moved with new-found energy along his path 
in the new-fallen snow. He knew from experience that soon 
all but the spring-fed lake and the rushing mountain streams 
must freeze, and he would no longer be able to come out in 
search of the tender alder twigs of which he was so fond. 
As he dove into the water to go to his lodge for the last 
time, he paused a moment to listen to the sweet musical 
tinkle of the little gray dipper who had come with the snows 
to live on the creek for the winter. Then there was a splash, 
and rings of ripples spread out over the surface of the pond, 
cracking the thin ice which was rapidly forming. Then all 
but the dipper grew still, and the mountain settled down 
under its white blanket and fell into the deep sleep of mid- 
winter. The snows had come at last!

We had just finished our coffee and were indulging in 
the usual light conversation with which one relaxes con- 
tentedly after a good dinner and even better wines. Julia 
returned from her bedroom and announced casually that 


the vampire-bat, which had lately taken up residence in 
the bathroom, was there now. Eagerly I awaited develop- 
ments — here was the chance of gaining an excellent insight 
into plantation life in the tropics, about which I knew all 
too little. George, under his wife's steady gaze, rose to his 
feet with the look of one determined in his duty and bellowed, 

"Munroe! The tennis racquets! Handsomely now!" 

Their butler appeared with a look of complete bewilder- 
ment on his face, dubiously holding a soda-water syphon. 

"No man, no! The tennis racquets! Remove the presses 
while you're at it," he added as an afterthought. 

Munroe disappeared, only to return later with the re- 
quired tennis racquets. George handed me one and having 
taken a few tentative swings with the other, passed it to 
Mary Simmington, the fourth member of our party. Julia 
began to roll up an issue of a popular periodical in a manner 
suggesting that she was accustomed to this type of emer- 
gency, and had long since decided on the rolled-up magazine 
as her favourite weapon. George, who had temporarily left 
the room, re-entered carrying a drawn naval sword in one 
hand and a waste-paper basket in the other. Whether the 
latter article was to be used as a helmet, or some form of 
trap, I had no idea. 

Slowly we moved into position. Munroe, obviously the 
most expendable person amongst us, was detailed to go into 
the bathroom and flush the bat out — armed solely with a 

"He can't do too much damage with it," George re- 
marked as we watched Munroe ease his way cautiously into 
the vampire's demesne. 

The enemy made a surprisingly fast attack and we all 
scattered. However, on finding that our opponent had taken 
refuge on top of the mosquito netting over the bed, we all 
recovered courage and from then on fought like Trojans. 

I had hoped that George was going to reserve his rather 
formidable weapon for the coup de grace, after the manner 
of the matador in the bullring, but such was not the case. 


He waited until Munroe came cheerfully out of the bath- 
room and then ordered him to shake the netting, while he 
took several powerful cuts at the bat. As the result of their 
combined efforts, three of the four cords holding up the net 
gave way, and it partly enveloped the unfortunate Julia 
together with the stoic Munroe. The bat, with barely more 
than a passing interest in the unusual scene below, climbed 
higher on the one cord. Both Mary and George swung 
simultaneously and as their bodies collided there was a 
noticeable twang as George's sword pierced Mary's racquet. 
The remaining cord v/as severed by this last slash and the 
mosquito netting sank to the ground covering all four of 
them, whose struggling forms reminded me, absurdly 
enough, of fish in a seine net. 

I was the only person to witness the departure of the 
vampire-bat, who surveyed the melee beneath him with ill- 
concealed contempt, and leaving his remnant of cord, flew 
to the window. Feeling obliged in some way to carry on 
where the others had left off, I rushed at the bat. My charge 
was brought painfully short as I fell flat over the waste- 
paper basket that George had dropped. From a distressingly 
horizontal position I saw my adversary fade unperturbed 
into the night. 

Gradually the others freed themselves. George handed 
his sword to Munroe who tucked it under his arm in very 
much the style of an Elizabethan sea-captain accepting the 
surrender of his vanquished opponent. Julia gave him her 
magazine, and we turned over our tennis racquets with mock 
formality. Munroe played his part nobly and I felt that our 
dignity was preserved, even in the moment of defeat. 

Later, just as I was about to leave, Munroe came up 
to George and discreetly whispered something, of which I 
thought I caught the words — "is there again." Hurriedly I 
thanked my hosts, waved to Mary and almost ran to my 
car. As I backed out I saw George stalking down the cor- 
ridor with his naval sword — the others were following . . .

Is Canada a success? I think that people all over the 
world would agree that Canada is a success. Yes, it is true 
that Canada has been a success in the past. Our ancestors 
have built up and moulded Canada into a great country. 
But what does the future hold for Canada? I believe that 
the young generation of the present age can and will do an 
even better job than their ancestors. My purpose is to show 
why I think that the young generation will prove themselves. 

To me, this seems a very important subject indeed. First 
of all, Canada has developed steadily during the past years 
and is now taking her place among the leading nations of 
the world. 

My second point is that the young people in Canada 
today have many opportunities to make good in this won- 
derful country and I believe that they should take advantage 
of these opportunities, that they are capable of doing so, 
and that Canada and her youth should grow and prosper 

Now, there are many criticisms about the boys and 
girls of today. It is said that they are spoilt and impertinent 
to their elders; but let us not forget that many of them 
have been brought up in homes where the fathers have been 
away at the war, and so they have been given much respon- 
sibility at an early age. They have grown up in a world of 
intolerance and unrest, where values are mixed and too much 
stress laid on material things. Yet in spite of this the young 
people of today still have a love of truth, honour, courage, 
and are looking for opportunities to prove these qualities. 
Surely there can be no better place to do so than in Canada. 

Canada itself is a vast land with untold wealth of raw 
material both above and below the ground. It is primarily 
a land of forests, whose trees are used in one of Canada's 
greatest industries, the manufacturing of newsprints and 
other types of paper. Canada's prairie provinces provide 
one of the largest wheat growing areas in the world and 
each year, billions of bushels are exported to other countries. 


In addition to wheat, Western Canada has come into the 
limelight through the discovery of large quantities of oil. 
These oil fields are being developed to such an extent that 
soon Canada will be one of the biggest oil producing coun- 
tries in the world. At the same time vast new mineral 
deposits have been discovered in Labrador. This land, pre- 
viously regarded as a wilderness, is gradually being built 
up into towns and cities, and this wealth will be used to 
further the industry of Canada and the United States. I 
have just mentioned some of the outstanding natural re- 
sources in Canada, but together with these are her fisheries, 
railways, coal deposits, other mineral resources, and great 
water powers which help in the production of so much 

All these resources provide a great challenge to the 
Canadian people, among whom youth plays an important 
part; I believe that these young people will meet this chal- 
lenge eagerly and cope with it successfully. For this is the 
only way that Canada's natural resources can continue to 
be developed profitably. Also, by doing this, the young 
people will prove that they are the greatest of Canada's 
resources. With all this industry, there is a wide range of 
careers to choose from. But whether one chooses to be a 
doctor, lawyer, farmer, engineer, or mechanic, and no mat- 
ter how many good opportunities present themselves, one 
has to have certain qualities to make a success out of life, 
not only materially, but spiritually. 

First of all, one has to believe in what he is doing and 
do it with enthusiasm. Secondly, one has to have the ambition 
and determination to carry things through. Thirdly, one has 
to have tolerance and love of his fellowmen. With these 
three qualities of enthusiasm, determination, and tolerance, 
together with a land like Canada to live and work in, I believe 
that the young people of today can have no finer future and 
that they will play a vital part in the development of Canada 
in the years to come. 

Yes, Canada has been a great country. Canada will be a 

greater country. _T. R. Carsley, Form VA.

While there is no championship to bring to the School 
this year, the season was anything but a poor one. Football 
teams must not be judged by previous teams, but by the 
spirit and play of the team in question. When we look at all 
the Little Big Four games of this season in which the Trinity 
team played it is plainly visible that every game would have 
been changed by two or three points. In fact, the final 
standing of the Little Big Four schedule depended upon 
three points in one game. This year's team was not one of 
outstanding stars but one in which each player did the 
most possible. We are not making excuses for the loss of 
the championship, and we all congratulate Ridley on their 
excellent win which they well deserved. The playing of the 
Ridley team was outstanding and we could not hope to be 
beaten out by a better team. 

Football is a sport which produces both hard physical 
contact and great sportsmanship. Mr. Hodgetts, the coach, 
certainly deserves the greatest credit for the way he con- 
ducts and has conducted this great sport at Trinity. All 
the games this year were classic examples of good, clean, 
hard football. The St. Andrew's game will certainly be re- 
membered for many years as one of the greatest football 
matches ever played between the schools not only because 
of the fine brand of football played but also because of the 
driving spirit of both teams. 

Our congratulations go out to captain and quarter-back 
John Gordon who has been awarded a Distinction Cap, an 
award which he well deserved for his outstanding play and 


Another Distinction Cap was awarded to Douglas 
Wiiloughby this year for his excellent effort in the Oxford 
Cup Race. Doug not only won the race in good time but 
he made it his second in two years, a record which has only 
been achieved once before. He plans to be coming back next 
year and we wish him the best of luck in setting a new 

Throughout the School, on both Middleside and Little- 
side teams, there was keen competition which produced 
extremely good seasons for both these squads. This was 
true not only of the football teams but also of all the soccer 
te-ams which played well throughout the whole season. It 
is this learning period which produces the basis of all the 
good first teams, and we can certainly look forward to great 
teams in the future to represent the School.

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 

October 18, at Upper Canada. Lost 8-6. 

After an undefeated exhibition season, the T.C.S. first 
team lost its opening Little Big Four game to U.C.C. by a 
score of 8 to 6. Play was very close throughout the game, 
but the excellent kicking of Peter Lindsay gave U.C.C. the 
three singles which won the game. 

Trinity kicked off to U.C.C. to open the game but U.C.C. 
was held and had to kick. Trinity then tried two passes 
both of which failed and also had to kick. Both teams fought 
hard but neither was able to gain an advantage in the first 

U.C.C. opened the scoring in the second quarter when 
Lindsay kicked his first single from the T.C.S. thirty yard 
line. Trinity, after receiving the kick, drove to the U.C.C. 
forty yard line but fumbled and U.C.C. recovered. After 
two plays, Lindsay kicked another single for U.C.C. Trinity 
came back immediately and scored when Board received a 


pass from Gk)rdon on the forty and ran for a major. Gordon 
then converted to make the score 6 to 2 for the School. 
After receiving the kick, U.C.C. drove down to the T.C.S. 
forty-one after two first downs. Then Brown of U.C.C. 
broke off tackle and ran forty yards for a major. The con- 
vert was blocked to end the first half with a score of 7 to 6 
for Upper Canada. 

In the third quarter, T.C.S. threatened to score when 
Board, after a pass from Gordon, ran to the U.C.C. ten yard 
line. But the U.C.C. line successfully held three Trinity 
plunges. Upper Canada was unable to penetrate into T.C.S. 
teiTitory until the fourth quarter as the Trinity team was 
making long gains. 

The final U.C.C. single came in the middle of the fourth 
quarter when Lindsay kicked from his own forty yard line. 
T.C.S. then fought desperately to get another touchdown. 
After a series of first downs on a number of penalties the 
ball was taken to the twenty but a fumble was recovered 
by U.C.C. who kept possession until the end of the game. 

Tice, Yale and Heenan played well for the School while 
Lindsay, Brown and Dalgleish excelled for the winners. 

The Team — Gordon (Capt.), Colbourne (Vice-Capt.). West, John- 
son. Parker i, Bonnycastle i, Tice, Luxton, Arnold, Yale, Board, Brown,

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
October 25, at Port Hope. Won 24-23. 

In their second game of the Little Big Four schedule, 
Trinity proved victorious after a see-saw struggle which 
will long be remembered in the pages of T.C.S. football 

In the opening minutes, after several ground plays had 
failed, quarterback and captain John Gordon threw a pass 
from the thirty yard line to Yale who crossed the line stand- 
ing up. The convert was good and Trinity led 6-0. During 
the remaining minutes of the first quarter Trinity was 
hampered by several penalties and the Saints pressed very

hard but to no avail. The quarter ended with St. Andrew's 
on the fifteen yard line, unable to score because of the strong 
Trinity defence. The second quarter opened with Trinity 
getting the ball, and, unable to get a first down, was forced 
to kick. Albury of the Saints caught the kick in his own 
territory and raced seventy-five yards up the sideline for a 
major which was converted by Crosley, to tie the score at 
6-6. Trinity received the kickoff and marched to the Saints 
fifty yard line from where Gordon threw another good pass 
to John Board who ran forty yards for the major. The con- 
vert by Gordon was good and Trinity led 12-6. After several 
good ground plays by Doug Colbourne and Jim Brown, T.C.S. 
was forced again to kick and the Saints ran it to the Trinity 
twenty-five yard line. Ryall of S.A.C. clicked with a twenty 
yard pass to his team-mate Cooper resulting in a touch- 
down. Ramsell kicked the convert and the score was tied 
12-12 apiece at the end of the first half. 

The second half opened with excellent ground gains for 
Trinity, especially by Brown, but once again penalties halted 
the drive and Gordon had to kick. The Saints tried to roll 
but good tackling stopped them and Hamsell kicked to Board 
of Trinity who ran the ball to the St. Andrew's thirty yard 
line. Brown went half the distance on the next play and 
Gordon went all the way in a plunge through centre. The 
convert was good and Trinity had an 18-12 lead. The Saints 
recovered their own kickoff and marched down the field 
with Ramsell finally scoring the major and Crosby con- 
verting. The score at the end of the third quarter was 18-18. 
The final quarter opened with the Saints kicking to Trinity 
and soon regaining the ball on a kick by Gordon. Long runs 
by Ryall and Ramsell brought the ball deep into Trinity 
territory. Ramsell added another major a few plays later 
but the convert was not allowed. The Saints led for the 
first time by a score of 23-18. Trinity then became determined 
and only losing the ball once because of a kick, they marched 
deep into Saint territory. Colbourne ran several long runs 
and then in the last two minutes of play, he crossed the line 


on a well deserved touchdown. The game was tied and Gor- 
don elected to kick the convert. It was good, and the game 
ended with Trinity up by one point 24-23. 

John Ramsell and Albury stood out for the Saints while 
the running of Colbourne, the passing of Gordon and the line 
play by Higgins and Johnson excelled for Trinity. It was a 
tough game for S.A.C. to lose but they took it as real sports-

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 
At Varsity Stadium, October 31. Lost 13-12. 

With a record of one loss and one win, T.C.S. lost their 
final game to Ridley by a score of 13-12. The play through- 
out the game was close but Ridley seemed to have a definite 
edge in the play. 

B.R.C. kicked off to start the game and after two first 
downs, Gordon's pass was intercepted and Ridley took pos- 
session. Ridley also made two first downs before the ball 
changed hands on a kick by Stewart. There was no score 
by either team until a pass from Stewart to Kennedy was 
good for an unconverted touchdown, to put B.R.C. ahead 5-0. 

Shortly afterwards a field goal attempt by Stewart 
failed but Board was tackled in the end zone giving B.R.C. 
a single point. The quarter ended with Ridley leading 6-0. 
In the second quarter the orange and black team completed 
two touchdown passes but both were called back for illegal 
blocking. A long pass from Gordon to Board brought the 
ball to the B.R.C. ten yard line, and on the next play Board 
scored on a reverse. The convert was good and the score 
was tied 6-6. Upon receiving the kickoff, Ridley drove to 
the T.C.S. seventeen, and a kick by Stewart gave Ridley 
another single point, making the score at the half 7-6 in 
their favour. 


Early in the third quarter another touchdown pass by 
Stewart was called back, but again B.R.C. kept fighting and 
Evans intercepted a Trinity pass. Aided by the good running 
of Hutchison, Ridley moved down the field and from the ten 
yard line Stewart threw another pass to Evans which was 
good for an unconverted major making the score 12-6 at 
the end of the third quarter. 

T.C.S. began to fight desperately in the fourth quarter 
but were stopped short when Ridley recovered a fumble on 
their own 50 yard line. B.R.C. pressed her attack home 
when Stewart kicked a single to make the score 13-6. Trinity 
quickly retaliated when a 40 yard pass from Gordon to Board 
clicked for a touchdown. The convert was good and Trinity 
closed their opponent's lead to 13-12. With only three minutes 
remaining in the game Ridley kept possession of the ball 
until the final whistle. 

The Trinity team played very well and displayed fine 
spirit but they were not quite strong enough to overpower 
the heavier team from Ridley. From beginning to end it 
was a thrilling game and a classic example of the good foot- 
ball always played between the schools. The whole Trinity 
team is owed congratulations for the way they played while 
we compliment captain Dick Hutchison and the rest of the 
Ridley team on their win. 

The Team — ^Gordon (Captain), Colbourne (Vice-Captain), Board.

Young, Ryley 1, Leslie, Heenan, Luxton ii, Coriat, Seymour, Sea- 
gram, J. D. 


October 15. Lost 10-6. 

In a thrill packed game, Middleside lost to Lakefield 
by a score of 10-6. For the first ten minutes of the game 
neither side made much progress. After a long kick by 
Donald, Lakefield just managed to get out on their one yard 
line. On the next play they fumbled and Anstis recovered 
on the fifteen yard line. T.C.S. on the next two plays were 


unable to advance, and the attempted kick was blocked. The 
Grove's passing attack carried them to the T.C.S. eight 
yard line, but here Sutherland intercepted a pass giving 
Trinity possession. On their second down, T.C.S. fumbled 
behind the line and Fenn of Lakefield fell on it for an un- 
converted touchdown. 

T.C.S. opened the second half very strongly and Cumber- 
land made three successful runs up the field and finally 
smashed through the centre for a touchdown which was con- 
verted by Lafleur to make the score 6-5 for T.C.S. Lakefield 
was the aggressor for the rest of the game and with two 
minutes to go they pulled a sleeper; Uren caught the pass 
and ran for a touchdown. T.C.S. was not finished, however, 
and a completed pass to Mather brought the ball to the Lake- 
field two yard line. But after three tries Trinity failed to 
go over, leaving the final score 10-6 for Lakefield. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 
October 20. Lost 7-6. 

In this game Middleside lost one of the closest games 
of the season to take place at Trinity. T.C.S. kicked off and 
throughout the first quarter both sides showed good foot- 
ball, both offensively and defensively. Neither side was able 
to score but there were several close tries. In the second 
quarter, Campbell broke the deadlock and put Upper Canada 
ahead by a score of 1-0 when he kicked a single point from 
the T.C.S. 45 yard line. At the half the score found U.C.C. 
still holding their narrow lead of 1-0. 

In the second half action started and in the late minutes 
of the third quarter Trowsdale ran 35 yards to score the 
first major of the day. The convert failed, but Trinity led 
5-1 at the end of the quarter. In the final quarter Seargent 
of U.C.C. ploughed his way for 12 yards and an unconverted 
touchdown to put the visitors ahead 6-5. Trinity then 
marched up the field and Donald kicked a single which tied 
the game at 6-6. With both sides fighting hard to score, 


Upper Canada got possession of the ball and in the last 30 
seconds they kicked the single point which won the game 
for them. 

For T.C.S., Donald, Trowsdale and Sutherland stood 
out, while Seargent and Campbell played best for the win- 


At Pickering, October 22. Won 32-0. 

Trinity received the kick-off and started immediately 
to march up the field. After several long gains by Suther- 
land and Donald, Cumberland scored the first major. The 
convert failed, and the School was ahead 5-0. Pickering 
fumbled in their next chance and T.C.S., led by the good 
blocking of Newland and Giffen, again marched up the field 
with Cumberland scoring his second unconverted touchdown. 
The score remained 10-0 till the end of the first quarter. The 
second quarter found Trinity constantly on the offensive and 
touchdowns by Cumberland and Trowsdale and one convert 
boosted the score to 21-0 at the end of the half. 

Pickering kicked off again and Trinity carried the ball 
deep into Pickering territory from where Burns ii went over 
the line and the convert by Mather made the score 27-0 at 
the end of the quarter. T.C.S. could not keep up their former 
pace and in the fourth quarter both teams slowed down. 
Pickering was still unable to score and Trinity ended their 
scoring with Cumberland running for his fourth touchdown 
of the game. The convert was blocked and the score at the 
end of the game was 32-0 in favour of the School. 

Cumberland played an outstanding game for Trinity 
and was ably supported by Burns i and Sutherland. The 
Pickering squad, though unable to score, played well as a 
group and it was impossible to pick out any individual star. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, October 24. Won 40-5. 

Middleside marked a sensational third victory in their 
rounds with the Little Big Four schools trouncing S.A.C. 


40-5. Throughout the entire game the School displayed ex- 
cellent football. 

From the kick off S.A.C. moved to the Trinity 10 yard 
line from where Proudfoot went over to score an unconverted 
touchdown. T.C.S. recovered a blocked kick by S.A.C. and 
Donald took the ball to the S.A.C. ten, which enabled Cum- 
berland to score a touchdown which A. Lafleur converted. 
The School then recovered a fumbled ball on the S.A.C. 
forty after the kick off and Donald moved the ball to the 
S.A.C. five yard line. A. Lafleur scored a major on a quarter 
sneak which he also converted. Donald then kicked for a 
single point as the first quarter ended. The only scoring 
in the second quarter came when Ferrie recovered a fumble 
behind the S.A.C. line for a major which Lafleur converted 
to make the half time score, T.C.S. 19, S.A.C. 5. 

E^arly in the third quarter, Donald skirted the left end 
for an unconverted touchdown. Soon after, an intercepted 
pass by Sutherland, put Trinity on the S.A.C. five and 
Trowsdale took the ball across for another unconverted 
touchdown. Minutes later a fake kick and run by Donald set 
up a touchdown by Trowsdale which Mather converted as 
the quarter ended. The only scoring in the fourth quarter 
came when Trowsdale intercepted an S.A.C. pass on the 
Trinity ten, and ran a sensational 100 yards for his third 
major, which was unconverted. The game ended with a 
score of Trinity 40, S.A.C. 5, a score that indicates the 
excellent football played by Middleside throughout the game. 

Team: — Donald (Captain), Cumberland (Vice-Captain), Suther- 
land, Lafleur A., Roe, Burns i. Burns ii, Newland, Anstis, Parker li, 
Ferrie, Scott i, Mather, Coltaouine ii, Ryley ii, Trowsdale, Goodman, 
Giffen, Cran, Hargraft, McGIennon. 


Wednesday, October 15. Lost 18-0. 

In the final game of their schedule, Middleside "B" were 
defeated by Cobourg 18-0. Early in the first quarter Co- 
bourg scored an unconverted touchdown after blocking a 


T.C.S. kick on Trinity's goal line. On a sensational running 
play, Marpole of T.C.S. came close to scoring but was tackled 
by the last defender and as the half ended Cobourg rouged 
T.C.S. to make the score 8-0 in their favour. 

In the first minute of the second half, Cobourg went over 
for a converted touchdown and followed it, three plays later, 
with another six point effort. T.C.S. tried hard to come back 
but could not get rolling against the heavier team. ITie 
game ended with the School losing 18-0. 

For the School, Marpole and Mills played strongly, while 
the whole Cobourg team played well. 


SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 
At Upper Canada, October 15. Won 34-21. 

In a high scoring, wide open football game, T.C.S. de- 
feated U.C.C. 34 to 21. Thompson kicked off for U.C.C. and 
in the first quarter Cape and Campbell went over for two 
Trinity touchdowns which Winnet converted to put the 
School ahead 12-0. Thompson scored a major for U.C.C. 
which Smith converted to make the score 12-6 for T.C.S. 
In the second quarter Ruddy recovered a U.C.C. fumble which 
set up the next Trinity touchdown by Campbell. Near the 
end of the half Hyland intercepted an Upper Canada pass 
and ran forty yards for another touchdown to put the Trinity 
team ahead 22-6 at the half. 

In the second half, U.C.C. put on a drive and Smith 
went over for a touchdown. Trinity fought back and Hyland 
went all the way to score Trinity's third touchdown. Winnett 
converting to keep T.C.S. in front 28-11. In the final quarter, 
U.C.C. fought back desperately to even the score as Smith 
and Thompson both went over for unconverted majors. How- 
ever, Hyland crossed the line for his third touchdown and 
then caught a pass from Winnett for the convert to make 
the final score 34-21 in favour of the School. 

Hyland, Campbell, Winnett and Ruddy stood out for 
the winners while Thompson and Smith played well for U.C.C. 


At Appleby, October 18. Tied 18-18. 

In the opening quarter, Trinity completely dominated 
the play and the passing combination of Hyland to Cape 
set up two touchdowns by Hyland and Campbell with Win- 
nett converting. In the second quarter, Trinity was unable 
to score while Grenym of Appleby scored a major and con- 
verted it himself, making the score at the end of the half, 
12-6 for T.C.S. 

Trinity kicked off to start the third quarter and both 
teams tried hard to score, but without success. Grenym of 
Appleby scored another converted touchdown. Trinity drove 
hard and on the last play of the quarter Campbell kicked a 
single point. In the final quarter Campbell of T.C.S. scored 
an unconverted touchdown, only to have Appleby storm back 
and Grenym scored his third major of the day. The convert 
was not good. The last play saw Appleby stopped on the 
School's one foot line and the game ended in an 18-18 tie. 

Campbell, Cape, Hyland and Saegert played well for 
Trinity while Grenym stood out for the Appleby squad. 

October 22. Won 17-12. 

In football that produced many thrills, Littleside staved 
off a last quarter scoring spree by Pickering to win 17-12. 
Near the end of the opening quarter Campbell opened the 
scoring by scoring a single point to put the School ahead 
1-0. In the second quarter the hard driving Trinity team 
couldn't be stopped as a pass from Campbell to Lash pro- 
duced the first major with Winnett converting. Keeping to 
the offensive, Hyland and Campbell both went over for un- 
converted touchdowns before the end of the half making the 
score 17-0 for Trinity. 

The teams came back after the half with renewed drive 
but in turn each team was stopped before it started, by a 
strong defence. In the fourth quarter Pickering desperately 
fought back with Marshall and Drun going all the way for

Pickering and Geachard converted both to end the scoring 
of the game with Trinity ahead 17-12. 

Hyland and Campbell played outstanding games for the 
winners with Ruddy, Caryer and Lash playing well on the 
line. Marshall and Geachard were best for Pickering. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, October 25. Lost 12-6. 

The game opened quickly with a stronger S.A.C. team 
scoring a converted touchdown early in the first quarter. 
The Saints dominated the play throughout this quarter and 
it was not until late in the second quarter that Winnett of 
Trinity scored a major, converting it himself, to make the 
score 6-6 at the half. 

In the second half the Saints put on another drive and 
soon scored a converted touchdown to make the score 12-6 
in their favour. The School fought to even the score but 
were stopped on their opponents' two yard line. Then S.A.C. 
took control of the ball and the game ended with no further 

Winnett, Boughner, Campbell, and Matthews played the 
best for T.C.S. 


At Port Hope, October 26, Won 19-0. 

In the last game of the season Littleside scored a 
decisive victory over Lakefield, defeating them by 19-0. T.C.S. 
scored first when Campbell kicked a single early in the first 
quarter but did not add to their total until nearly half time 
when Jenkins scored after a Lakefield kick was blocked deep 
in their own territory. The convert was blocked and the 
score at the half found Trinity leading 6-0. 

Trinity went further ahead in the second half when 
Campbell scored a touchdown, which Winnett converted and 
then added a single on a terrific 45 yard kick. With time 
running out the Grove made a determined effort to score 
but were unable to go all the way. Lash scored the final 


touchdown on a pass from Hyland, with Winnett convert- 
ing, to make the final score 19-0 in favour of the School. 
Ca.mpbell, Lash and Winnett played very well for Trinity. 


In the annual session of House Football games Brent 
proved to be superior by winning both the Bigside and Little- 
side games. In the Bigside game action started with strong 
tackling and fast offensive plays by both sides. Near the 
end of the first quarter Gordon threw a touchdown pass to 
Board, and a good convert made the score 6-0 for Brent. 
Both teams threatened in the second but the score remained 
the same until the second half. 

In the kick off, Board ran the ball to the Bethune 50 
yard line but Brent was unable to drive their attack home 
and had to kick. Board crashed through the Bethime line 
to pick up a fumble and ran 25 yards for a converted touch- 
down. With only 60 seconds left in the game Brown, of 
Bethime, ran six yards for the only touchdown for Bethune. 
The convert was good, making the final score 12-6 for Brent. 

On November 6, a hard fought game took place between 
Brent and Bethune Middleside, with the latter victorious by 
a score of 11-6. Lafleur kicked off for Brent and a hard- 
hitting first quarter began. Both teams threatened to score, 
but neither did so until the second quarter when Sutherland 
and Bums both scored for Bethune. The first convert was 
good and the score remained 11-0 till half time. There was 
no scoring in the third quarter but early in the fourth quar- 
ter Mills of Brent picked up a blocked kick and ran ten yards 
for the major. The convert was good and Brent trailed by 
a final score of 11-6. 

Brent captured the Littleside cup by defeating Bethune 
20-0. Winnett opened with a field goal, and this was quickly 
followed with converted touchdowns by Campbell and Lash 
to make the score 15-0 at the half. In the last five minutes 
of play Caryer of Brent went over for an unconverted major, 
making the final score Brent 20, Bethune 0. Thus an end 
comes to another season of football at T.C.S. 





At Port Hope, October 18. Lost 3-1. 

On a very cold day Pickering defeated Bigside Soccer 
by a score of 3-1. During the first half both teams missed 
many chances with Cowan coming close for T.C.S. on two 
occasions. It was not until mid-way through the half that 
the scoring was opened by Pickering on a hard shot that 
gave goalie Lafleur no chance. Bateman equalised for T.C.S. 
and at half time the score was 1-1. 

The second half proved much more exciting with Picker- 
ing scoring twice to clinch the game. T.C.S. defended very 
well in this half but could not organize a good attack. The 
game ended 3-1 in Pickering's favour. 

Bateman, Mitchell and Cowan played well for the School 
while for the visitors, goal-getters Marinakys and Abaroa 
were best. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. 

At Aurora, October 24. Lost 1-0. 

First team soccer lost their return game to a greatly 
improved S.A.C. team at Aurora by a score of 1-0. The 
Saints failed to take advantage of the strong wind in the 
first half and although they had the edge in the play they 
were unable to score. Bingham led several strong rushes for 
T.C.S. but at the end of the half there was still no score. 


The second half opened with a determined attempt by 
T.C.S. to get a quick goal. However, the S.A.C. defense held 
and their forwards began a strong drive which resulted in 
a goal by Gathers who beat Lafleur in a low hard shot. 
Trinity tried desperately to tie the score but several close 
in shots were missed and the game ended in a 1-0 victory 
for the S.A.C. team. 

The T.C.S. defense played a good game; Higgins and 
Bingham were the best forwards. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 

At Port Hope, October 29. Lost 3-0. 

For the home game with U.C.C. the visitors were victors, 
defeating the School 3-0. Trinity was compelled to play a 
defensive game in the first half as U.C.C. took full advantage 
of a following wind and bombarded goalie Lafleur from all 
angles. With ten minutes remaining until the half Bracht 
scored the opening goal for Upper Canada on a high shot 
on which the T.C.S. goal keeper had no chance. 

The second half proved scoreless for the School although 
they came close on many occasions. Bateman made a good 
try but the U.C.C. goal keeper with a sensational dive 
managed to get hold of the ball and again Trinity's efforts 
went unrewarded. Two goals in the last three minutes of 
play by U.C.C. 's Bratch and Mason made the final score 3-0 
in favor of U.C.C. 

Bateman, Lafleur, and Higgins were best for the School 
while the U.C.C. defense was excellent. 

SCHOOL vs. B.M.C. 
At R.M.C., November 8. Lost 4-2. 

The game opened with T.C.S. pressing hard and Bing- 
ham put Trinity ahead on a strong shot which caught the 
cadet goal keeper out of position. Within a few minutes 
Cowan made the score 2-0 with a shot that just found the 


upper corner. The cadets followed suit soon after with goals 
by Bogstad and John Hylton, to tie the score 2-2 at half time. 
In the second half R.M.C. took the lead on a hard shot from 
close in and followed quickly with another goal by Bhone. 
The Cadets' defense proved too strong for T.C.S. to score 
and the game ended in a 4-2 victory for R.M.C. 

Bogstad, Hylton played best for R.M.C. while Adamson, 
Lafleur and Polak were best for the losing cause. 

In the return game with R.M.C. at T.C.S. on November 
15, Bigside won its last league game, by a score of 2-0, There 
was no scoring in the first half, though T.C.S. had the edge 
in play. Early in the second half Bateman opened the scoring 
on a long pass from Bingham. Minutes later Cowan added 
another when he headed a pass from Bateman into an upper 
comer. Trinity successfully held back the Cadets and regis- 
tered their only win of the season. For the School Bateman, 
Thornton and Bingham played well. 

T.C.S.— Cowan i (Captain), Polak (Vice-Captain), Adamson, H. 
Lafleur, Higgins ii, Thornton, Bateman, Bingham, Mitchell, ten Broek. 


At Port Hope, November 12. Tied 1-1. 

On a very cold November 12, a much improved T.C.S. 
team held Trinity College to a 1-1 draw. The School had a 
definite edge in the first half with the forwards passing 
exceptionally well. Mid-way through the half, after Cowan 
had hit the goal-post with a shot. Brewer put the School 
ahead on a very skilful shot from close in. The half ended 
with the score 1-0 even though Trinity College came close 
to scoring many times. 

T.C.S. found themselves hard pressed after the first 
half and time after time the visitors forced Lafleur to make 
sensational saves. At last the attackers' efforts were re- 
warded when Cater scored with a corner shot, thus closing 
the scoring in a very exciting match. 

Brewer, Lafleur and Polak were the stars for T.C.S. 
while Cater was best for the visitors. 


At Port Hope, October 13. Lost 2-1. 

In a very closely contested match the Old Boys defeated 
the School 2-1. Midway through the first half, Cowan opened 
the scoring with a long high shot and put the School ahead 
1-0. The play was very even in this half and several chances 
were missed by both teams. 

Minutes after the second half got underway, Mr. Landry 
tied the score from a close in shot. Sensational saves were 
made by both Lafleur and Mr. G.T. in the next five minutes 
but Mr. Landry again found his opening and scored the 
clincher for the Old Boys just before the final whistle. 

The game proved very exciting, with Cowan, Higgins, 
and Lafleur playing best for T.C.S. while Mr. Landry led 
the formidable array of Old Boys. 

T.C.8. — ^Lafleur ii, Thornton, Church ii, Adanason, Bateman, 
Cowan i, Higgins ii, Bingham, Martin, Mitchell, Aitcheson. 

Old Boys — ^Butterfield, Wilding, Williams, Mr. Landry, Mr. Gwynne- 
Timothy, Mitchell, Denny, Spencer, Adamson, Brewer. 

November 5. Tied 0-0. 

On November 5 the first team met the staff in their 
annual soccer match from which the masters emerged vic- 
torious with a scoreless tie. In the early minutes the team 
was caught off guard by several surprising attacks by 
Messrs. Dale and Scott, but they seemed to be put off by 
Mr. Lewis' fedora. However, they recovered quickly but 
were unable to score by half time, when the masters retired 
to staff headquarters. 

Early in the second half the first team pressed hard and 
the masters had to use their "Head" on the defence. Mr. 
Lewis was forced to call on his vast repertoire of tricks, 
and Mr. G.T. was driven to make several dazzling stops. 
Play continued evenly until the closing whistle, when 10 
minutes overtime was suggested. The staff reluctantly 


agreed but there was still no scoring and the epic straggle 
remained unsolved for another year. 

Masters — Mr. Ketchum, Mr. Lewis, Mr. Dening, Mr. Dale, Mr. 
Gwynne-Timothy, Mr. Willmer, Mi-. A. Scott, Mr. Prower, Brewer, 
Jack.son and George. 


On November 19, the Rugby team defeated the Soccer 
team 6-2 in one of their first real soccer matches in years. 
In the first minute of play Cowan scored on a pass from 
Bateman to put the soccer players ahead 1-0. The football 
team quickly retaliated with two goals by Brewer and Sea- 
gram to take command of the game. Gordon added another 
point on a beautiful shot from far out to increase the lead 
to 3-1 at the half. 

In the second half Rugby added three more goals by 
Tice, Higgins and Colbourne. Before the final whistle Soccer 
managed to score one more goal and the game ended with 
the Football team in front of a 6-2 score. The fine heading 
of MacKinnon (with the aid of a helmet), the spirals by 
Gordon as centre half and the accurate snapping of Luxton 
on goal kicks helped give Rugby the victory, while Mr. 
Willmer gave a wonderful exhibition of skill for the soc- 

Football — ^Heenan, Gordon, Tice, Boax'd, Luxton, MacKinnon, Sea-

ton, Higgins ii, Church ii. Polak, Mitchell, Jackson. 


SCHOOL vs. S^.C. 

At Aurora, October 22. Lost 2-1. 

The game opened with fast action and the Trinity team 
kept the ball in the S.A.C. goal mouth for most of the first 
half. The School, however, was unable to score and near 
the end of the half S.A.C. moved up the field and Webb 
scored in their only strong rush. 


After half time S.A.C. again produced a strong attack 
and Webb made the score 2-0. The Trinity team began to 
press and in the closing minutes of the game Heywood scored 
on a pass from Aitcheson. 

For the Saints Webb, Rowe and Strickland played an 
outstanding game. T.C.S. was best represented by Mason, 
Wells and Martin. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 
At Upper Canada, October 29. Lost 4-2. 

After winning their first game with Upper Canada in 
Port Hope, Trinity dropped their return match to a much 
improved opposition by a score of 4-2. The U.C.C. team 
opened strongly scoring two goals in the first half, with 
Trinity unable to score. 

In the second half Upper Canada put another shot 
through the posts to increase their lead to 3-0. Trinity then 
fought back with George and Heywood each scoring a goal 
cutting U.C.C. 's lead to one goal. The Blue Team, however, 
came back again and clinched the game with a good fast 
shot from close in. 

The match ended with Trinity trying to score, but when 
the whistle blew they had been unable to add to their total. 
Team — Mason, Martin, Blackburn, Budge, Jackson, Tuer, Hey- 
wood, Hulse, Coleman, Aitcheson, Wells. 


This year the first team soccer game was won by a fast 
moving Bethune squad by 2-0. In the first half Bethune had 
the edge in play, with Brewer scoring the only goal on a 
close-in drive. In the second half Brent had their best oppor- 
tunities but in spite of their football reinforcements they 
were imable to score. Bethune again went on the offensive 
and Brewer put another shot past Budge, the Brent goal- 
keeper, to increase their lead to 2-0. In the final minutes 
of the game, despite the darkness, Brent came close on shots

by Bateman and Cowan. The outstanding play of Brewer, 
Adamson, and Thornton gave Bethune a well deserved vic- 
tory, while Polak starred on the Brent defense. 

Brent — 'Polak, Bateman, Budge, Cowan i, MacKinnon, Heenan, 
Board, Martin, Cowan ii, Ryley i. 

Bethune — Lafleur, Adamson, Thornton, Church, Mitchell, Hig- 
gins ii, Bingham, Brewer, Tice. 


Brent House scored a convincing 5-2 defeat over Bethune 
in the Littleside House game. 

Brent proved to be the superior team though Bethune 
fought hard. Winnett opened the scoring for the winners on 
a shot that gave goalie Drummond no chance. Fairbaim fol- 
lowed with two quick goals for Brent before half-time. 

Mitchell ii and Jenkins got a goal each for Bethune in 
the second half, although Saksena made many sensational 
saves. Brent's final goals were registered by Cowan ii and 

Fairbairn played well for Brent while Dunlap and Jen- 
kins stood out for the losers. 

Brent — Saksena, Colman, Cowan ii, Hyland, Winnett, Scowen, 

Fairbairn, Beattie, Seagram ii, Scott ii. 

Bethune — Drummond, Jenkins, Dunlap, Samuel, Mitchell ii, 
Wells ii, Borden, Audain, Maclnnes. 


At Port Hope, November 16. Lost 8-5. 

The School's first game of competitive Rugger was 
played here against the Nomads from Toronto and was a 
great success. For the first part of the game, the teams 
were split up as a means of coaching on the spot to give 
our comparatively unexperienced team a chance to learn 
more about the game from experienced players. The T.C.S, 
XV did very well in the latter part of the game. John Board 
made an excellent run, playing on the three quarter line. He 


ran almost the length of the field, finally passing off to Mit- 
chell who got the ultimate try for T.C.S. Ryley converted 
to complete the score. Mr. Willmer played excellently for 
the School making some very good gains. The scrum is to 
be complimented on a very fine job against a heavier opposing 

The T.C.S. team was as follows: (forwards) : Blackburn, 
Coriat, Mitchell i, Brewer, Tice, Wilson, Brown, Heenan; 
(scrum half) : Higgins ii; (stand off) : Sutherland; (three 
quarters) : Colbourne, Willmer, Ryley, Board; (full back) : 


Tlie fifty-sixth annual running of the Oxford Cup was 
held this year on November 14, a perfect day for the race. 
From the start MacKinnon took the lead but Willoughby's 
training began to show and, after the halfway mark of the 
course had been passed, he took the lead followed by Jerry 
Moore. Doug Willoughby crossed the finish line in 25.48 
minutes, one of the better times in past years, but well be- 
low the record of 22.32 made by J. O. Combe in 1930. He is 
the second boy to win this race two years in succession and 
we congratulate him for his outstanding effort. This year 
Bethune House won the cup by defeating Brent 28-27. 

The order of the finish was: Willoughby, Moore, Mac- 
Kinnon, Hulse, Board, Coriat, Brown, Adamson, Mason, Mol-

The Hallowe'en Party went off very well indeed in spite 
of having been delayed by the Mid-Term Break. Many of 
the costumes showed considerable originality on the part 
of the owner. 

The Intra-Mural Soccer League is providing some very 
close competition with only a few points between the first 
and the last teams. 

We are very grateful indeed to the Montreal Ladies' 
Guild for a gift of books. Our library is used a great deal 
and we are always in need of replacements for our shelves. 

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to 
all members of the Junior School! 


Every time I go to the Museum, I go straight to the 
third floor. This is where the Natural History Section is. 
I like this part of the Museum because it has almost every 
kind of bird, insect and reptile. Most of them are shown as 
they live in nature. There are even some things which are 
extinct now, such as Dinosaurs and the Passenger Pigeon. 

But, best of all, I like a mother bear and her three cubs. 
These bears look as if they are in the woods because in the 
background there are pines, and in the foreground some 
birches. There are some flowers growing and a cub is eating 
berries off a bush. The mother bear is ripping a log open 
and you can even see the red ants coming out of it. This is 
only one of the interesting things to see,

It was only a few months ago when I went to the Fair. 
I paid my entrance fee and went in. There were men selling 
balloons and some were selling little fur monkeys on sticks. 


I walked down the Midway and looked at all the sideshows. 
Some voices could be heard over the crowd saying "Three 
cents a ball," "Step right up. Take your chance." and others 
saying, "Try your luck in throwing rings." and "See the 
fattest lady in the world." 

There were also people selling all sorts of candy. Be- 
cause it was Fair Day, I ate pop-corn, peanuts, cotton candy, 
and hamburgers. 

When I went on the merry-go-round, I got dizzy and 
wanted to get off but I had to wait till it stopped. Ferris 
wheels I never did like, especially when they stopped and I 
was on the top. There was a man standing outside a tent 
saying, "See the snake-eating Gorilla." I went inside and 
saw a half -grown gorilla. 

Tired and very full I trudged home. I went to bed and 
dreamt of the Fair again.

This word comes from the Latin — "skia," a shadow, 
and "oura" a tail. The definition is a small animal with a 
bushy tail, inhabiting trees. 

This is so, but it is often noticed that squirrels like 
leaping and doing aerial acrobatics. The squirrel is one of 
the friskiest of wild animals. Have you ever watched them 
rollicking through the trees, leaping from branch to branch 
as if they were stepping across a crack in the sidewalk? As 
they leap from a quivering foothold, they seem to pause for 
an instant in the air and then land on a branch which bends 
heavily with their weight. 

Have you noticed the grey squirrels at the back of the 
School in the pine trees? They chase one another around 
all day without a care in the world. 

There are three common types of squirrels — red, grey 
and black. Of these, the blacks are the most common, with 
the greys second. Squirrels seem to be increasing in popula- 


tion every year, maybe because they are quite difficult to 
tame. One can sit for hours watching them frisking through 
the branches, chattering away at each other as they gather 
a store of nuts for the winter. Of all the wild animals which 
inhabit towns and cities, I think squirrels are the most en- 
joyable to watch.

What a thrill we always get waiting for the train; 
Thinking where it comes from, and where it goes again. 
Perhaps it comes from Ottawa or else from Montreal, 
Maybe from Nova Scotia, or Newfoundland's ocean wall. 

It may be going to Winnipeg, or even Saskatoon; 

Across the plains and mountains, to reach Vancouver soon. 

I'd love to travel on it, and I will one day, I know, 

And I'll see the famous cities and the rivers where they flow. 

— M. C. Spencer, Form IB. 


Of all the wonders of this world, I think that the Panama 
Canal should by no means be left out. Its intricate mechanism 
has for years attracted the wonder of millions of tourists. 

As you enter on the Pacific side, your eyes are trained 
on the beautiful city of Balboa with its flowers and palm 
trees. When the ship noses into the first lock, the electric 
mules (as they are called) take their places alongside. The 
doors begin to close and finally they are completely shut. A 
rush of water enters very quickly into the lock. The ship 
rises until you can see over into the other lock. Then the 
mules tug and strain and the gates before you open to allow 
the ship to pass on to the higher level. The same operation 
occurs in the next lock. 

Your ship presently approaches the famed Culebra Cut; 
the biggest man-made ditch in the world. Finally, you come 


to Gatiin Lake, with its many mud islets. Here alligators 
bask in the sunlight and bathe in the mud. 

At last you reach the last set of locks where the ship 
drops to the lower level of the Atlantic, and you sail out, 
proud that you have come in contact with that world-wide 
wonder — the Panama Canal. 

— S. H. G. Trickett, Form lA. 


The arena is packed with a roaring, cheering crowd com- 
pletely absorbed in the game. The cheering seems to shake 
the very foundations of the arena as a goal is scored. 

Players in two different, brilliant colours are darting 
to and for on a shimmering, glistening surface of ice. They 
seem to be fighting over a little black object which is being 
slapped, shot, and carried by the players over the hard sur- 
face as the battle rages. 

One sees a goalie in each net, with a different colour 
marking his team, crouched ready for the black object to 
be shot at him. He seems ready for anything, a grim smile 
on his hardened face. The players have also got their pro- 
tective pads which make them look like strangely coloured 
beetles standing upright and moving at a fast pace as you 
look on from the back row seat.

Co-Captains of Rugby P. C. Jennings, D. E. Cape 

Modem rugby is becoming such a complicated game 

that it is quite a problem to build a team when there are 

very few experienced players left over from the previous 


Considering our lack of experience, the Jimior School 

team can be said to have done a good job this season. We

learnt a great deal and the spirit of the team was good. The 
games were always played with enjoyment and when we did 
lose, nobody got too downhearted over it. 

Some of the new crop showed definite promise and we 
are already looking forward to another rugby season. 


The following have been awarded First Team Rugby 
colours for the 1952 season:

Captain of Soccer P. D. Woolley 

The Soccer Team had a very close game at U.C.C. losing 
by a score of 3-2. 

Lakefield at T.C.S. saw a clear-cut 4-0 victory for the 
School. A stronger Lakefield side reversed this decision by 
a score of 3-1. 

St. Andrew's visited Port Hope and played to a 1-1 tie. 

Team:— P. D. Woolley (Capt.), H. B. Bowen, J. H. 
Hyland, D. A. Walters, D. W. Knight, P. R. E. Levedag, 
P R. Boughner, P. G. Barbour, D. A. Barbour, C. G. Gustaf- 
son, P. L. Gordon, T. I. A. Allen, C. H. J. Bingham. 


Lakefield visited Port Hope on October 8 to open the 
season. The School opened well with a quick touchdown by 
Marett in the first quarter. Jennings kicked the convert. 


Jennings also kicked for a rouge during the second quarter. 
A heavier and more skilled Lakefield squad then took over 
and the game ended 32-7 in favour of Lakefield. 

On October 18, the School visited Upper Canada. Both 
teams were very even in size and ability and the game was 
extremely close with the issue in doubt until the final whistle. 
U.C.C. scored one point on a rouge and the School scored a 
touchdowTi on a U.C.C. fumble behind their own goal line 
which was recovered by F. Stephenson. Final score : T.C.S. 6, 
U.C.C. 1. 

The return match at Lakefield on October 21 provided 
a much more even game. T.C.S. showed excellent fighting 
spirit and Jennings' kicking for the School was very good. 
Final score: Lakefield 8, T.C.S. 0. 

St. Andrew's visited T.C.S. with a very strong, heavy 
team on October 25. T.C.S. again opened the scoring with 
a rouge but soon succumbed to the S.A.C. passing attack 
which was extremely good. Final score : S.A.C. 43 ; T.C.S. 2. 

The Ridley - T.C.S. game was played on the Trinity 
College campus in Toronto on October 29. The School opened 
well with a converted touchdown in the first three minutes 
of the game and had the best of the play in the first half. 
Ridley came back very strongly in the second half and showed 
some excellent blocking. Marett's plunging and tackling was 
a feature of the game. Final Score: Ridley 13, T.C.S. 7. 

House Game 

The House Game was won 16-6 by Orchard House. The 
teams were very evenly matched but neither side produced 
any outstanding football. 


Soccer Colours have been awarded to the following 
boys: P. D. Woolley, P. G. Barbour, P. R. Boughner, J. H. 
Hyland, H. B. Bowen, P. R. E. Levedag.

What are we, and what are we here for? Every age 
bears its crop of new philosophers, and they all have a dif- 
ferent answer. A philosopher once separated science and 
theology by placing them at either end of the scale, with 
philosophy in the middle. Yet theology does not repudiate 
science the way he suggested. Rather, theology embraces 
both science and philosophy. Science, on the other hand, 
has tried to replace religion with something more tangible, 
more understandable, more materialistic. We are told how 
everything is made up of tiny atoms, and how, if we were 
to have command of the method, we could split these to 
have them re-unite in any desired combination, to make any 
matter into any other matter. 

Some people have the idea that science is on the verge 
of finding the key to the mysteries about us. Nothing could 
be closer to the truth if these same people would only ex- 


tend their limited vision a little further. Science itself is 
acknowledging that, no matter how far it can go, there is 
always much more to solve. Time and time again a scientist 
has repudiated all thought of God, only to come back to his 
old beliefs because they are the conclusion of his scientific 

People with active imaginations like to give us concepts 
of life on earth within a half century from now. Some of 
them depict us as back to cave-dwellings, others have us 
travelling from planet to planet in spaceships— a pair of 
extremes arising from the thought of atomic energy. They 
are pictures painted by two kinds of people— the pessimists 
who say that our scientists are creating power enough to 
destroy the world, and the optimists who see us as masters 
of the Universe. Can we not cope with our erring energy? 
What right have we to take our troubles and pseudo-knowl- 
edge to another world? Man's nature is such that he always 
creates his own problems. He is always quarreling, loving, 
hating, being selfish, trying to get his own way. He always 
must have something with which to struggle. Taken as a 
whole, we are a race of fools; taken individually, we have 
the makings of greatness. 

And so we go on philosophizing, shifting theology and 
science and being very philosophical about it all. 

But "what do we know?" ... a scientific question? 

— E. A. D.

A beautiful festival frontal arrived from England in 
the autumn, given by the Ladies' Guild. 

The workmanship is magnificent and the symbolism 
most unusual. It is white with a fringe of gold on the super 
frontal, and upright gold bars on the frontal proper. In the 
centre is a beautifully embroidered symbolic design repre- 
senting the Trinity encompassed by vine leaves. The frontal 
has been much admired by all who have seen it. 


The two tall lancet windows in the Sanctuary of the 
new Chapel are to be of coloured glass to form the Me- 
morial Window. Mr. G. B. Strathy is giving this window 
in memory of all Old Boys who gave their lives in war. The 
members of the Chapel Furnishings Committee examined 
one panel of the design, completed by James Powell and 


Sons, London, England, and were most impressed by it. 
The order was, therefore, given to this well-known firm. 
Mr. Gerald Larkin has taken much trouble about this win- 
dow and he has asked his friend. Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, 
who is having the windows for Liverpool Cathedral made 
by the same company, to watch over the making of the 
T.C.S. window. 

There will be two scenes from the Old Testament, six 
from the New Testament, and the top panels will depict 
the Resurrection. 


At the Carol Service on December 14 the boys and 
visitors contributed a sum of $150.55 for the assistance of 
families at Christmas time. Cheques for $25.00 each were 
sent to Church workers in the parishes of St. James' Cathe- 
dral, Toronto; Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal; St. 
George's Cathedral, Kingston; Christ Church Cathedral, 
Hamilton; St. John's Church, Ottawa, and St. Mark's Church, 
Port Hope, Letters of appreciation came from the families 
and the Headmaster read them to the boys. Some of the 
senior boys take a personal interest in the families con- 


At the Choral Communion service on February 8 a 
special offering was made for the assistance of flood victims 
in Holland. A sum of $179 and some cents was given. The 
School is also despatching a bale of warm clothing to a 
lady in Holland who will distribute it. 


The experiment of seating the Choir in the visitors' 
gallery for the service was considered very successful. The 


voices blended and the choral effect was more balanced than 
when the choristers are in the choir stalls. 

A large number of visitors attended, chairs were placed 
in the aisles and Narthex, the overflow being accommodated 
in the gallery with the choir. The singing of the Christmas 
hymns by such a large congregation was really stirring. 
Carols for the full choir were Bach's "Break Forth", a 
Russian Folk Song, "Steeples set your bells a-ringing", 
arranged by A. E. Whitehead, Dr. Healey Willan's "Whence 
come you, good shepherds". "Masters in this Hall" (Hoist), 
"Ding Dong merrily on high", by C. Woods. Two unaccom- 
panied numbers, "Gabriel's Message", for full choir, and 
"The Shepherds", for tenors and basses in four parts creat- 
ed a veiy favourable impression. With its restrained smooth 
tone and clear diction, "The Polish Carol" has always been 
a favorite with singers and listeners alike. "Wenceslas" 
gave the opportunity to hear two very pleasant soloists, 
J. R. M. Gordon (King) and T. I. A. Allan (Page). The 
Trebles were excellent in a two-part French carol, "Whence 
is that goodly fragrance". The special music concluded 
with a virile "Gloria" by Martin Shaw. 

The carols were recorded during the Service and some 
were broadcast over CFRB on Christmas Day; comments 
from hsteners from various points report very good re- 

During Lent the Benedicite is being sung for the first 
time in many years at T.C.S. Dr. Healey Willan's beautiful 
setting of the Nunc Dimittis has also, on occasion, taken the 
place of the usual chants. 


On November 23 the School had the pleasure of listen- 
ing to an address by a great friend of the Chaplain, the 
Reverend Canon R. A. Armstrong, M.A., D.D. Canon Arm- 
strong spoke on the "Captain of the Young" — our Lord. 


He explained his use of this term by showing that our 
Lord had the abihty to touch and bring out the best in all 
men, rich or poor, young or old, regardless of their color 
and creed. Jesus, he said, is able to enter into any man's 
heart if the door is open. To illustrate this he di-ew the 
picture of Peter, who forsook his fishing to become a fisher 
of men for his Master. 

Jesus, the Canon said, can change us. He can bring out 
our talents, just as He brought out the supreme talents of 
Wilberforce, Schweitzer and many other great men. The 
only way to allow God to work with us is to renew our faith 
in Christ and then, and only then, shall we become the useful 
men that He meant us to be. 


On November 30 we were privileged to hear a sermon 
by the Reverend John Galloway, the Minister of the Baptist 
Church in Port Hope. He took as his text the 19th verse 
of the 30th chapter of the Book of Proverbs , "There be 
three things which are too wonderful for me: the cry of an 
eagle in the air, the way of a serpent upon a rock, and the 
way of a ship in the midst of the sea." These wonders only 
mean one thing — the marvel of the achievements of unseen 
forces. This idea is one of the main themes in the Bible. 
Life will be very much poorer for us if we only believe in 
tangible things. We must also believe in the intangible. We 
put our trust in the name of God. Our Lord Christ, for 
example, never did anything extraordinary to become fa- 
mous, yet, by the power of God, His name is worshipped over 
the earth. How does this apply to us? To live life success- 
fully, to have a well-rounded and full lifetime, we must live 
in the light and belief of this divine power. The way of God 
is needed in the heart of man to make his life strong, useful 
and righteous. 



On December 7. Canon Lawrence preached in Chapel, 
taking as his text, "And thou, Bethlehem, in the land of 
Judah art not the least among the princes of Judah." 

There are few towns whose names are more widely 
known than that of Bethlehem. In countries by no means 
Christian, the story of the greatest of world characters is 
known. "In the place where He was homeless all men are 
at home." Canon Lawrence mentioned the annual stream of 
Christians who direct their attention to a crowded inn and 
an adjacent stable. He spoke of the fame of Bethlehem 
before the Birth of Christ. Ruth, who came to Bethlehem 
after leaving her father's house, worked in the harvest fields 
there. Samuel, the prophet, found a successor to King Saul 
in young David who lived in Bethlehem. Later this town 
came to be known as "the City of David". 

It was not coincidence that brought Joseph and Mary 
down to Bethlehem by the decree of Caesar Augustus that 
all the world should be taxed. For the writer of the first 
gospel declared that the place of the birth of Christ had 
long been foretold. He was satisfied that it was Jesus whom 
Micah had in mind when he wrote that "Out of Bethlehem 
shall He come whose goings forth have been from of old 
from everlasting." 


On the first Sunday of the Lent term, January 11, the 
School had the unexpected pleasure of hearing a very in- 
teresting sermon given by Archbishop Renison, one of our 
most loved and respected Old Boys. He chose as his text 
part of the second verse of the third chapter of the Book 
of Exodus, "The bush was not consumed". 

The Archbishop opened his sermon by telling us a story 
of an artist who ventured all the way to Hudson's Bay to 
paint the northern hghts, only to be sent back by a factor 


of the Hudson's Bay Company on suspicion of being a 
trapper. This factor had never noticed the beauty of the 
northern lights — this is just an example of how little of the 
wonders of nature we notice and admire. 

Everyone knows the story of Moses, who, destined to 
be King of Egypt, killed an Egyptian taskmaster who was 
beating a Jew and fled to the wilderness to become a shep- 
herd. One day he saw a burning bush which the fire did 
not consume. From this bush came the voice of God which 
told him to lead the Jewish people to freedom from the 
Egyptians. Moses then became perhaps the most famous 
leader in history. 

Some years later the life of another now famous man 
was influenced by a vision of God. This man was Isaiah, a 
Hebrew priest, and he saw our Lord surrounded by angels 
in the temple; he became a great prophet. 

Later still in history, there is the well-known story of 
the conversion of Saul. He was a great persecutor of Chris- 
tians and was on his way to Damascus when a bright light 
shone down on him from heaven and a voice called out to 
him, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?" Saul, whose 
name became Paul, lived to be a devoted Christian preacher 
and learned writer. 

In this century of world strife and unrest, what we 
need most is the return of Christ to the earth to lead us 
out of our present state of affairs and to give us more men 
like St. Paul and Moses to help Him in His struggle. 


Canon Lawrence told us a story called Leontopolis in 
the Memorial Chapel on January 18. Leontopolis was a 
Jewish centre situated on the Delta of the Nile and was a 
city of great culture and religious influence. On the plain 
within sight of the city, a caravan, made up for the most 
part of women and young children, had camped. There 
seemed to be only one man acting as watchman and it was 


to this man that a Roman soldier came to ask why these 
people had set up a nursery. The watchman replied that 
these women had brought their children from Bethlehem to 
avoid Herod's purge of all the new-born babies in his 
attempt to exterminate the child Jesus. The soldier scoffed 
at this remark and said, "Your Saviour has been born too 
late, for peace has already been given; the Roman eagle 
has saved the world from all its enemies." Little did he 
know that the Christ-Child was to bring a peace far greater 
and more spiritual than anything man in his materialism 
could give. The soldier left, and the watchman turned and 
called, "Mary". A voice answered, "Joseph, come softly, the 
child sleeps." 

C.B.E., Q.C., M.A., L.L.P., B.C.L. 

The School welcomed back Mr. Justice P. H. Gordon 
('00-'02), one of its most famous Old Boys, on January 25, 
and had the pleasure of hearing him speak in the Memorial 

"A man's life consists of not only that which he pos- 
sesses." These are the guiding words which have led Mr. 
Justice Gordon through his life. He related this quotation 
to the influence this School had upon him in the form of 
athletics and studies, which were both augmented by the 
qualities of boarding-school life. "Remember," he said, "our 
body is the temple of the Holy Spirit." Mr.. Gordon stressed 
the necessity of the attainment of an intimate knowledge 
of the Bible, and added the fact that a well stored mind is 
the greatest tool to material success. 

Mr. Gordon went on to mention some of the world- 
renowned Old Boys of T.C.S., using Sir William Osier, Arch- 
bishop Renison, and Bishop Brent as fine examples. He 
suggested that these famous men should be our guides to 
a more worthwhile life, and concluded by telHng the boys of 
the tremendous debt of gratitude that the}'- owe to their 


Headmaster and all the members of his staff for their un- 
relenting work in changing boys into young men. 


On Sunday, February 8, the guest preacher was the 
Reverend Douglas Dewdney of Newcastle. He took as his 
text part of the 41st verse of the 6th chapter of Chronicles 
II: "Rejoice in Goodness." 

Mr Dewdney told us of the tremendous change in 
emotions that the world has undergone since its creation. 
In the Roman era, the people rejoiced in the sordid and 
bloody spectacle of the gladiatorial battles, while in the 
Polynesian islands men took great pride in their collection 
of human heads. The spirit was then barbaric and the mind 

Today, however, we, the Christian peoples of the world, 
admire a large variety of good qualities. We rejoice in 
courage and strength, in generosity and honesty, and in 
cheerfulness and fair play. These are all wonderful and 
necessary characteristics to possess while passing through 
the trials and tribulations of life. 

The majority of the people living in both civilized and 
uncivilized countries respect highly the human quality of 
loyality. This characteristic is not limited only to one person 
or thing, for one can be loyal to one's family, to one's coun- 
try, and to God. Mr. Dewdney concluded by saying that 
it is the loyalty to God which gives us the by-product of 
happiness and which, if maintained, will lead to our eventual 
attainment of all the other good qualities of life. 


"All things work together for good to them that love 
God." On these words from the eighth Chapter of St. Paul's 
Epistle to the Romans, the Venerable Archdeacon Arthur 



Smith of Belleville based his ser-mon to the School on Feb- 
ruary 15. 

The Archdeacon stated that a few days previously a 
boy in his confirmation class had asked him why, if God is 
the essence of love, He allowed the disastrous floods in 
Europe to occur. Archdeacon Smith pointed out that the 
answer to the boy's question is in the title of the anthem, 
"God So Loved the World." Life is meant to be difficult; 
the more so it is, the larger number of hardships man has 
to overcome, and thus the stronger his character becomes. 
The great earthquake of San Francisco necessitated the 
rebuilding and improvement of countless buildings and yet 
the tremendous task was completed. 

Archdeacon Smith concluded by stating that man 
profits by his own mistakes and by overcoming the diffi- 
culties that beset him.

Mrs. Ernest Howard has given a magnificent, large, 
oriental rug to the School; it is planned to use it in the 
reading room of the new library. 

Mr. Sydney Saunders ('16-'20) has given a prize for 
photographs published in the Record. 

Clarke McGlashan ('28-'36) gave a new set of dessert 
spoons, tea spoons, knives and forks, eighteen of each, for 
the Pat Moss Ski Camp, where it was badly needed.

Mr. Osier has also given a fascinating game to the Hospital. 

Mrs. Britton Osier has sent to the School the Bible 
which Sir William Osier used at Trinity College School, 


Weston, in 1866. It will be placed in the Osier Rcx)m of the 
new library.

Mrs. E. G. M. Cape, of Montreal, daughter, mother and 
grandmother of T.C.S. boy(s), has founded a Bursary to 
be known as the Smith-Cape Bursary. It will be of the 
value of about $150 a year and it is to be given to a boy, 
needing assistance, "on the basis of all-round characteristics 
of which citizenship shall be one". The award will be made 
by the Bursary Committee. 


On February 23, Ernie Howard capped a wonderful 
squash season by defeating Calvin McCracken of Engle- 
wood, New Jersey, in the finals of the American National 
Squash Championships by a score of 3-2. In the semi-finals, 
MacCracken defeated Conlon, the defending champion. 3-0, 
while Howard played his first match to upset Diehl Mateer, 
the second seeded player, by 3-2. In the first 41 years of 
this national championship, no Canadian player had ever 
before even reached the quarter-finals. 

On February 7, Ernie won the Canadian singles for the 
first time by defeating Mateer 3-1 in the finals at Ottawa. 
He had previously won the T.C.S. and Hamilton Invitations, 
the Toronto and District singles and been runner-up to 
Conlon in a five-game final at the Rochester Invitation. 

It was only on January 24, in the Harry Cowles Invita- 
tion, a major American tournament, that Mateer had de- 
feated Howard 3-0 in the second round. It was thus in a 
period of but four weeks that he changed from a perennial 
challenger to a champion. He had been matching shots with 


the best of the Americans for three seasons, but consistently- 
lost deuce games. Now he is winning the deuces. Ernie is 
unusually fast on the court and volleys as does no other 
amateur on the continent. He thus keeps the pressure con- 
tinually on his opponent by cutting off the ball before it 
reaches the back wall. His is a strong and skilful game. 
Even so, it is amazing that he has done so well when he 
receives no topflight competition in Canada. 

Ernie is now 26 and started to play squash at T.C.S. 
when he entered the Senior School in 1941. He eventually 
became School champion and captained our first Little Big 
Four championship team. Squash was not his major athletic 
interest at the time, however, as he was also captain of the 
hockey team. In the Junior School he had been a triple- 
captain, and it is interesting to note that he was Associate 
Head Prefect with Hubie Sinclair who also had been a triple- 
captain at the U.C.C. Prep. 

He entered McMaster- and after his first year went on 
to Varsity where he started to play squash seriously in 
1948. He captained the Varsity championship team and 
missed winning the American Intercollegiate singles by only 
one point. He now works in Toronto for McLeod, Young 
and Weir. 

While we are all proud of Ernie's playing ability, he 
makes an even stronger impression as a good sportsman. 
His manner on the court is always friendly, he never crowds, 
never argues over a bad decision and willingly offers his 
opponent every possible break. He is admired and liked by 
the Americans with whom he has competed, and they were 
not at all unhappy to have him win their championship, 
judging by the applause he received on the court. Con- 
gratulations, Ernie!

The annual mad scramble in the gym, known as the 
Pancake Toss, was held, as usual, on Shrove Tuesday, with 
Mr. Batt acting as Chief Pancake Tosser. After a fierce, 
wild struggle, Jim Brown, representing 6A, emerged vic- 
torious with eleven ounces of the putty pancake. Dave 
Seymour of 6S, and Don Colbourne of 5B1, were second and 
third with 10 and 9 ounces, respectively. 

As the flabby mass flew over the expectant heads, 
Brown made a successful grab for it. Immediately he was 
brought down by a now savage group of animals. 

After three minutes of head-diving by Colbourne and 
bull-like rushes by Parker ii the struggle ceased, and Brown 
received the five dollar prize from Mrs. Ketchum. The Tuck 
Shop received the full complement of members of 6A that 


This year, the School has been very fortunate in ob- 
taining a series of excellent English motion pictures which 
have been shown in the assembly hall every other Sunday 
evening. They consist usually of a short educational film 
on a country and a "main feature." 

The first movies were "Jamaican Harvest" and a war 
documentary called "School for Secrets". Unfortunately, 
the projector was not working satisfactorily at the start, 
but those who waited patiently were rewarded with a 
trouble-free and exciting last reel. The next two main films, 
"Green for Danger" and "The Blue Lamp," were considered 


by all the boys to be top-notch mysteries, while the adjoining 
educational shorts took us from an "Arctic Harvest" to a 
trip through New Zealand. 

Alec Guiness played the seven members of the 
D'Ascoigne family, all of whom eventually fell prey to a 
revengeful, yet cunning murderer, in the very amusing film, 
"Kind Hearts and Coronets". The most recent evening of 
movies consisted of a short on Ants, another on India, and 
"Hue and Cry", the main feature. The former movie short 
had a narrator whose sparkling comments added immensely 
to an already very interesting sequence of pictures. "Hue 
and Cry" was a light-hearted mystery which placed a group 
of slum children in important parts. This film was the first 
of this type to be produced by Ealing Studios, and it is no 
wonder that their second attempt, "The Lavender Hill Mob", 
was such a success. 

The School is indebted to Mr. Willmer and Mr .Landry 
for these evenings. 


We were extremely sorry to hear that Mr. Dale would 
not be with us this year, but we welcome Mr. Angus Scott 
as our new director. With a great deal of experience behind 
him, he has already proved himself by his more than bril- 
liant production of "Q" at the Christmas Entertainment. 
At the start of the year, Bonnycastle and Molson were 
elected president and vice-president respectively, with 
Heenan as secretary. Cumberland, Hulse, van Straubenzee 
and Jackson also returned from last year, and only four 
new members, namely, Ross, Thornton, tenBroek and 
Davison were asked to join. The Easter play, "See How 
They Run", by Philip King, is shaping extremely well, and 
from all indications should more than live up to the Society's 



For the third consecutive year Mr. Bishop has given 
up much of his spare time to organize and run the Cercle 
Frangais. Tuer has been elected President, and Brine, Sec- 
retary. Once a week, after supper at "French tables", where 
only French is spoken, the members meet for forty min- 
utes of games, songs, and play reading. Freedom from class- 
room restraint breaks down reserve and plenty of conver- 
sation results. It has been the practice this year to keep 
the minutes of the club and the executive hope that these 
will serve as a reference to future members. 

At Christmas the Cercle Frangais acted a French play 
entitled "L' Anglais tel qu'on le Parle", which received much 
praise. The accents of the players were considered surpris- 
ingly good. The boys in the play enjoyed doing it very 
much and we hope that the Club will continue to produce 
French plays from time to time. 

In the future it is hoped that apart from our informal 
meetings members will be able to watch French language 
movies which are being obtained from the National Film 


A short-wave radio club has recently been started in 
the school. The transmitting and receiving equipment is on 
loan from the R.C.A.F. in conjunction with the Air Cadet 
studies. When on the air, the station will join a network 
of similar Air Cadet stations across the country. 

It is hoped that Binnie will shortly receive his "ticket" 
and the School will then have its first "ham" operator. 
Binnie has been instrumental in instructing a number of 
boys in the fundamentals of radio. 


The Photographic Society under Mr. Lewis has resumed 
its activities again this year. Bonnycastle was elected 


President and Hierlihy, Vice-President. Several members 
have been added to the society during the year and several 
boys have been taking lessons from Mr. Lewis and using 
the Air Force equipment. 

Mr. S. B. Saunders has very kindly offered two prizes 
of five dollars each for the best photographs appearing in 
the Record. His generosity is greatly appi'eciated by the 
numerous photographers in the School. 


Mr. Angus Scott and Mr. John Willmer are planning 
to take a group of boys out West this summer. The trip 
will be rather like a "travelling camp". They will cook their 
own meals in the colonist car on the way out, camp wher- 
ever possible as they move from place to place, and will 
spend about two weeks in the Rockies, during which time 
they will join one of Mr. Brewster's famous pack-horse 
trips. It is hoped that the trip will also include an expedi- 
tion up the coast of British Columbia, a visit to the Alberta 
oilfields and the Calgary stampede. 


Owing to the abnormal lack of snow during January 
and February, conditions for skating on Rice Lake were 
excellent. Two excursions were made from the School to 
take advantage of the fine ice, and both times the boys 
returned to school full of fresh air and sunshine, and aching 
from head to toe. Some had skated ten or fifteen miles. 


Despite the lack of snow, the Pat Moss Camp has been 
used by boys nearly every week-end. They go out on Sat- 
urday and stay until Sunday afternoon, cooking their own 
meals and keeping the fires going for warmth. We still hope 
to run the camp for underprivileged boys in the summer. 



We were all deeply sorry to learn of the death of Mr. 
W. H. Trott on October 21st. Mr. Trott had been taking 
team pictures at T.C.S. for over thirty years; his good 
humour, patience and skill were recognized by hundreds of 
boys and they will not forget him. 

Mr. Trott was born in Ridgetown, and lived in Kin- 
cardine and Collingwood before coming to Port Hope in 
1919. He opened a photographic studio on Walton Street 
and immediately began to take a deep interest in community 
affairs, and to give his devoted support to the work of the 
United Church. He always said that he looked forward to 
his visits to the School and he came to know a large number 
of boys by sight, and many by name. He will be sadly 


One of the most interesting talks the School has heard 
this year was given by Canon Bryan Greene of Birmingham, 
EIngland, on October 24. He spoke to the School in the 
Memorial Chapel, and compared the character of the in- 
dividual with that of the nation, stating that if we are to 
avoid a third World War. we must strive to be friendly, 
understanding, and loyal to our world. Canon Greene's talk 
was impregnated with good humour; his personality and 
voice captured the interest of the students as well as that 
of the number of guests that assembled to hear him speak. 
Some of the boys were so impressed by Canon Greene's 
brief talk that a busload went to Toronto on the following 
Sunday to hear him speak again. 

This is the second time that Canon Greene has spoken 
to the School and we all hope that his third visit will not 
be too far in the future. 



Owing to the interference of the half-term break, 
Hallowe'en was celebrated at T.C.S. one day earlier than 
usual, on October 30. However, none of the enthusiasm of 
this occasion was lost by the new date. As has been the 
custom now for many years, the celebrations started with 
an apple-dunking competition in the swimming pool, and an 
obstacle race in the gym, both between the new boys of 
Brent and Bethune Houses. In the former competition, 
Bethune was the victor, but Brent regained its lost prestige 
by winning the obstacle race. Next on the programme was 
the chocolate-bar hunt for the new boys. Five minutes after 
the signal for the charge upstairs had been given, every 
drawer on the second floor of the classroom block had been 
opened half a dozen times. The last event of the evening 
was the long-awaited "feed" in the hall for the whole School. 
One hundred and eighty-six stomachs were stuffed with 
everything from jelly-beans to apple cider. Everyone, espe- 
cially the new boys, agreed that they had thoroughly en- 
joyed themselves and went to bed dreaming of the coming 


On November 28, the School had the privilege of hear- 
ing a stirring speech on International Affairs given by Mr. 
H. A. Mowat of Toronto. He spoke very convincingly about 
the achievements of the United Nations and described sev- 
eral meetings he has had with famous men. He stressed the 
suspicious nature of the Russians, mentioning the incident 
in which Gromyko and Molotov posted special guards to 
protect themselves from one another while staying at the 
same hotel. After the speech, Mr. Mowat answered any 
questions put to him by the boys, and explained his answers 

This is the second speech Mr. Mowat has given at 
T.C.S. and his arrival was looked forward to with much 



On Wednesday, December 3, all members of the Sixth 
Form put on their Air Cadet uniforms and travelled to the 
R.C.A.F. Station at Trenton on a bus pro\dded by the Air 

On their arrival at the R.C.A.F. Station, the group was 
welcomed by Group Captain J. B. Millward, A.F.C., the 
Commanding Officer of the Station. G/C Millward outlined 
the afternoon programme, which included a visit to the 
Radar Scope of the Ground Controlled Approach system, a 
close-up view of all types of aircraft in use by the R.C.A.F., 
a visit to the Meteorological section and Flying Control, a 
movie of the 1952 Jet air show in England, and last but not 
least, a flight in a Dakota aircraft for those who were allowed 
to fly. The flight took them over the School in Port Hope 
and return to Trenton. The Chief Flying Instructor, Squad- 
ron Leader C. C. Lee, then started the group on their various 
activities with the help of three staff pilots. 

The Cadets kept their four guides busy answering 
questions on jet aircraft, theory of flight and meteorology. 
The Air Force officers were much impressed by the type of 
questions asked, as thej'' imphed a considerable amount of 
pre\'ious knowledge of flying. 

It was certainly one of the most enlightening and enjoy- 
able visits of the year for the boys. 


About eighty guests and boys enjoyed the annual 
Football Dinner last fall, a dinner highlighted by the ex- 
cellent food, the brevity and scarcity of the speeches and 
by the presence of John Kearns with some Argonaut foot- 
ball films. 

On this occasion, the Headmaster again welcomed to 
the School man}- Old Boys: among those attending were 
Norman and Bill Seagram, Syd Saunders, Brick Osier, 
Charles Bums, Pat Osier, Tom Taylor, Ian Cumberland, 


Brodie and Wally Duggan and the most venerable footballer 
in the gathering, Mr. S. S. DuMoulin of former Hamilton 
Tiger fame. Many fathers of boys on the team came from 
many parts of the Province, their presence adding to the 
success of the dinner. 

Possibly the evening was not quite so spirited, for 
apparent reasons, as in the previous two years. However, 
the 1952 team deserved all the praise it received, having 
won its exhibition series and losing two Little Big Four 
games by a margin of only one point in each case. 

Mr. N. O. Seagram, Mr. DuMoulin and Mr. B, M. Osier 
made presentations on behalf of the School to the members 
of the team, and Gordon, team captain, was awarded the 
J. W. Kerr Trophy for the Most Valuable Player and the 
Headmaster's Cup for Kicking, Catching and Passing. 
Sharing in the festivities were representatives from strong 
Middleside and Littleside football teams, the three soccer 
teams and the Junior School football team. The success of 
these younger teams during the fall seems to ensure other 
good T.C.S. teams in the years ahead. 


The School was privileged to entertain at dinner Air 
Commodore Annis of the R.C.A.F., who had been invited to 
Port Hope by the Canadian Club to give a lecture on "Air 
Defense." Some of our boys were fortunate in being able to 
attend this gathering, returning greatly impressed as they 
realized with pride the real significance of the R.C.A.F. in 
the defense of our country. 


The l ort Hope Rotary Club invited four boys from 
different countries to dinner towards the end of last term; 
each boy made a five minute speech about his native land 
and the members of the Rotary Club expressed themselves 


as being much impressed by the ability of the boys to ex- 
press themselves clearly. Those who attended were: Eddie 
Day (Mexico), Ron Johnson (Peru), Tony Brewer (Ber- 
muda), Jeremy CoLman (Nassau), and Eldo tenBroek 


The last night of Michaelmas term this year began in 
the traditional way with an excellent turkey dinner. The 
choir sang carols from the gallery beforehand, the yule-log 
and boar's head were carried in, the Jester with all his 
tricks was much in evidence, and the boys indulged them- 
selves with their customary gusto. 

The entertainment after the dinner was a very well- 
balanced show. The Junior School started off the festivities 
with their production of "Alice in Wonderland." in which 
Trevor Ham played the leading role of Alice. Following 
this, Bob Arnold unexpectedly stepped forward dressed as 
Little Lord Fauntleroy, and sang his version of "I Saw 
Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." Mr. Angus Scott's debut as 
a producer was very well executed by the Dramatic Society's 
presentation of Stephen Leacock's "Q", a "psychich pstory 
of the psuper-natural". Inigo Adamson. as the amateur 
actor Annerly, and Peter Davison, as the gullible spiritualist 
Groof, played their parts with great con\action. 

After a brief intermission, "Le Cercle Francais de 
T.C.S.," ably directed by Mr. Bishop, staged a short play 
entitled "L' Anglais Tel qu'on le Parle". Hugh Molson, as 
the easily flustered cassiere and Edo tenBroek, as the tem- 
porary interpreter, gave interesting and amusing perform- 
ances. The French accents were very good and, considering 
the obvious language difficulties, the play was a definite 
success. The last event of the evening was the traditional 
Junior School Musical. The theme was South American. 
The gaily coloured chorus sang among others. "Orchids in 
the Moonlight", "South American Way", "Anapola", and 


"The Lady in Red". Congratulations are due to Mr. Dennys 
for his excellent work with the singers, and to Miss Wilkin 
for her dance and stage routines. 

It was generally agreed by all those present that this 
Christmas production was one of the best in years and we 
are all looking forward to the play at Easter on which the 
Dramatic Society is working so hard. 


On Sunday, January 11, the School was greatly honoured 
by the brief visit of the famed Vienna Choir Boys. The 
choir was in the middle of a three-month tour through 
Eastern Canada and the United States, and was en route 
from Montreal to Toronto when it visited the School. 

The Wiener Sangerknaben or Vienna Choir Boys were 
founded by royal decree of Maximillian I in 1498, just six 
years after Columbus discovered the New World. Until the 
dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, the 
Vienna Choir Boys continued to receive royal patronage. 
However, with the fall of the Hapsburgs the choir faced 
extinction, and it is only through the valiant efforts of the 
present Dean, Dr. Schnitt, that the choir is in existence 

The Choir was under contract, and so could not officially 
sing for the School; however, they did "burst into song in 
the gallery on their way to the bus" for about ten minutes. 
The Choir Boys sang the first three items on the programme 
for their performance in Toronto the following night. The 
pieces were magnificently done, and there is no doubt that 
everyone in the School enjoyed the singing immensely. The 
only disappointing thing was that the Choir could not stay 

A few boys were given the privilege of hearing the 
Choir in Toronto the next night. The whole performance, 
which included "Johnny In Luck." an operetta with music 
by Johann Straus, was magnificent. The three boys were 


very kindly welcomed backstage by the Choir both before 
and after the performance, and they took that opportunity 
to extend the thanks and best wishes of the School. Much 
credit is due to the Choir's Musical Director, Herr Harald 
Hedding, for his excellent work with the boys. 


On January 14, Mr. G. D. Gregory, the Assistant Dean 
of Admissions of Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, 
spoke to the senior boys of the School on the advantages of 
American Colleges, and Hamilton College in particular, for 
those who wish to take a liberal arts course. Such a course 
gives a broad, general education, requiring at least one 
foreign language, two years of social studies, and two years 
of science. Public speaking is also emphasized, and every 
student must take an active part in some sort of athletics. 
In conclusion, Mr. Gregory stated that Hamilton was a 
small college, and because of its size, one gets to know 
one's fellow students and easily acquires the feeling of 
belonging there. 


On January 15, the School had the unique privilege of 
hearing an informal talk on Far and Middle Eastern Affairs. 
The speaker was Brigadier QuiUiam, a career soldier, and 
an expert on the world's m.ajor trouble spots, the East. 
The Brigadier was Chief of the Middle Eastern Political 
Centre of the British Intelligence Corps, as v/ell as being 
the London Times correspondent for this area. 

Despite association with such formidable forces of 
world policy, he spoke clearly and simply to the School on 
the vital question of eastern foreign policy as regards the 
West. The Brigadier went on to describe the mental outlook 
of these peoples, their way of life, and showed us the main 
reasons for their present poor state of affairs. In conclu- 


sion Brigadier Quilliam said, "Some new methods must be 
found to improve their lot, and to gain their friendship and 
co-operation. " "That," he went on, "is in your hands; you 
are the rulers of tomorrow. Therefore I leave you with this 
thought in mind — yours is the responsibility for completing 
the task." 


On January 31, Mr. Prower, despite a formidable 
attack of influenza, once again entertained the School with 
an excellent piano recital. 

In tribute to National Ballet Week, Mr. Prower played 
selections from some of the finer examples of ballet music. 
Among those which he rendered so well was the Three 
Waltzes by Chopin, a gay and lively piece. 

It was a pleasure for all of the boys who were present 
to hear such good music played well. We all wish to thank 
Mr. Prower, and hope that there will be many more recitals 
in the near future. 


Music is playing an important role in School activities 
this year. A piano recital and several organ recitals have 
been given by Mr. Tony Prower. He has also performed on 
his oboe in the School chapel, ably assisted at the organ by 
Mr. Gordon Marigold. The boys seem to enjoy these oboe 
recitals very much. 

New long-playing records have been added to the record 
library during the past year and several musical evenings 
have been presented on Friday nights. Two orchestras have 
been or are being reorganized, one known as the United 
Counties Concert Orchestra with Port Hope and Cobourg 
musicians, and a number of boys included. The other group 
consists of T.C.S. boys only. Both are under the direction 
of Mr. Prower.

On the evening of February 6, the departments of 
Geological Sciences, Geophysics, Mining Engineering and 
Metallurgy of the University of Toronto held an Open House 
for Grade 12 and 13 students to enable them to leani about 
the career opportunities in the Mineral Industries. Six 
senior boys from the School took advantage of this offer 
and were given an extremely interesting evening. 

The programme started with two movies, both shown 
in the beautiful new Mechanical Engineering Building on 
the University Campus. The first of the two films was pro- 
duced by Shell Oil Company and was one of those shown 
at the School last year. The second one pictured the various 
stages through which bauxite ore must go prior to its 
eventual change into aluminum. 

Mr. V. C. Wansborough, Managing Director of the 
Canadian Metal Mining Association, then spoke very con- 
vincingly to the one hundred and sixty-odd students present 
on "Careers in the Mineral Industries." 

The last event on the programme was a guided tour 
of the laboratories of the four departments listed above. 
This was by far the most interesting part of the evening. 
Everything that the students saw was clearly explained and 
there were many members of the staff present to answer 
any questions. 

I doubt whether any student vaguely interested in a 
career in the Mineral Industries could have had a more 
highly organized, interesting and, what is most important, 
more constructive and educational evening. 



The Headmaster of Noble and Greenough School, Mr. 
Eliot Putnam, wrote as follows: 

"Any fears that our boys may have had about the 
superior quality of Trinity hockey were substantiated com- 
pletely by the sterling play of your boys. Nobles was proud 
to lose to such a team. Even more important were the 
completely spontaneous expressions of respect and friend- 
ship so freely made between our respective groups. Is there 
anything that compares with 'friendly strife' between schools 
when conducted on such a plane? This is a reminder of 
warmth across the border." 

Two other letters have been received from Princeton 
people: "With congratulations to Trinity not only for its 
championship performance but for its exemplary conduct 
and personification of the highest standards of sportsman- 

"The Canadians did a splendid job here — ^we were all 
very much impressed not only by their fine game but by 
their fine sportsmanship." 

The Captain and members of the Hockey Team are most 
grateful to the many Old Boys who sent telegrams of con- 
gratulations to them for winning the Lawrenceville Tourna- 

Among the Old Boys who went to Princeton to see the 
games were: A. W. Moore ('17-'22), Desmond Magee ('34- 
'36), Rollin "Rusty" Keyes ('39-'44), Hugh Walker ('49-'52). 
Ian Walker ('51-'52), Harry Godshall ('26-'33), Duane 
Howard ('44-'50). 


This year Speech Day will be on Saturday, June 6, three 
days earlier than it has ever been. The Upper School De- 
partmental Examinations begin earlier than ever on June 
9. and it is necessary to give the candidates every oppor- 
tunity to study quietly for them. 


The Easter holidays have been reduced to ten days 
instead of fourteen and will run from April 2nd until April 

The Cadet Inspection will be on May 9th. 

Michaelmas Term will begin on September 8th and 9th. 

The Junior School will continue in session until June 
12th and their Easter holidays will run from April 2nd until 
April 14th.

The Senior Debating Society held its third debate at 
the School on January 30, having as its guests the Trinity 
College Debating Team. The School, acting as the Govern- 
ment, supported the resolution that "It is not the high cost 
of living, but the cost of high living that makes the cost of 
living so high." Inigo Adamson, as the first speaker for 
the Government, dwelt on luxuries that we could easily do 
without, such as cigarettes, alcohol and gambling. Ted 
Rogers, the first speaker for the Opposition, stated that the 
high cost of living was due to three things : too much money 
in circulation, the scarcity of various goods, and the Liberal 
Government's extravagant policies. The second and third 
speakers for the Government, John Board and David Sey- 
mour, spoke respectively on luxuries that we consider essen- 
tials and true essentials, pointing our that social competi- 
tion, false advertising, and extravagant vacations are factors 
that force the cost of living upwards. Alexander Shearson 
of the Opposition compared high living during the days of 
the Roman Empire and in the Victorian era to today's 
standards of high living. Scott Symons, a T.C.S. Old Boy, 
rounded off the Opposition's argument with a very amusing 
speech which succeeded in confusing both the Government 
and the Members of the House and also, as some neutral 
observers thought, himself. 

The Chairman of the Judges was Mr. Humble, assisted 
by Mr. Prower and Mr. Knight. After commenting on the 
debate, Mr. Humble gave a decision in favor of the Oppo- 


sition due to their superior knowledge of the subject and 
their presentation. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

On February 7, the Senior Debating Society played host 
to the three-man Debating Team from St. Andrew's College, 
Aurora, in the second of its series of four inter-school de- 
bates. The resolution before the House was "Resolved that 
mercy killing should be legalized." The S.A.C. team were 
D. A, Guzman, S. A. Morris and A. E. Matthews, forming 
the Government, while the T.C.S. team, as the Opposition, 
consisted of J. D. Seagram, E. A. Day and R. M. L. Heenan. 

The first speaker for the Government, D. A. Guzman of 
the Dominican Republic, gave the best speech of the evening 
for the Gover-nment, although he has been speaking Enghsh 
for only three years. J. D. Seagram, the first speaker for 
the Opposition, took the viewpoint of a doctor, and stated 
no one can be sure that a remedy for an "incurable" dis- 
ease is not at this moment being discovered. The next 
speaker for the Government, S. A. Morris of Bermuda, voiced 
his poor opinion of the present custom of leaving a man's life 
in the hands of the twelve ordinary men forming a jury. 
He suggested a jury of six specialists when a mercy killing 
case was brought into court. E. A. Day, the next member 
of the Opposition to speak, took the part of a lawyer, and 
said that there is bound to be corruption among doctors and 
thus we cannot give them the power to end someone's life. 
The last speaker for the Government, A. E. Matthews, suc- 
cessfully rounded off its argument by stating that mercy- 
killings would not be committed unless the patient so de- 
sired and also after careful consideration by a group of 
specialists. R. M. L. Heenan, the final Opposition speaker, 
made a stirring speech m which he put himself in the place 
of a clergyman. He said that the fundamental law of all 
times is that life is sacred, and also since we believe that 


life is God-given man must not be allowed to kill what the 
Lord has created. 

After a very good rebuttal by D. A. Guzman, the Judges 
left to tender their decision. A division of the House was 
called for by the Speaker and the Opposition defeated the 
Government by a small margin. Shortly after, the Judges 
returned to the House. The Rev. Louis Fowler acted as 
chairman, assisted by Lewis Roberts. Esq., and J. E, D. 
Stuart, Esq. The chairman commented on the very high 
standard of debating shown during the evening and awarded 
the debate to the Opposition. 


Under the guidance of Mr. Dening, the Junior Debating 
Society has this year elected Colbourne ii President, Hulse 
Vice-President, and Higgins ii, Secretary. The Society is to 
meet every other Tuesday evening to take part in debates 
and "pepper-pots", and it is hoped that through these meet- 
ings the standard of public-speaking of each of the members 
will be considerably raised. 





Mr. Scott, Housemaster of Brent House for eighteen 
years, is this year finishing his fiftieth year of teaching. In 
his early years in the profession in England he studied 
Mathematics at the University of London by correspondence. 
He has taught in Canada at the Quebec High School, Rothe- 
say Collegiate School and King's College School where he 
was Headmaster for seven years. He came to T.C.S. as an 
assistant master in September 1934. Looking and acting 
like a man of fifty years, instead of a schoolmaster for fifty 
years, Mr. Scott has become a tradition at T.C.S. and a 
pillar of the School. 


Mr. Reeve has come to us from St. John's Technical 
School in Winnipeg. He was educated in England, attended 
Westminster City School and went on to Oxford University. 
At Oxford he played both soccer and cricket for his college, 
and represented Oxford County in soccer. In 1912 he left 
the university with Honours in Modern History. He then 
came to Canada, and in 1913 started teaching at St. John's 
where he was appointed Principal in 1925. He has been a 
prominent member of the Granite Curling Club in Winnipeg 
for years, and plays golf. 

He is now teaching fourth and fifth form Latin and we 
feel extremely fortunate in ha\'ing him with us. 



The half term break has had a queer effect on the School 
in general, and as a result, lots of things have been hap- 
pening. As usual, everyone seems to have enjoyed them- 
selves. There isn't much doubt that GOOF, DON and Co. 
enjoyed themselves at the "Old Mill." At any rate GOOFY 
actually made the swimming meet under his own steam! 
Let's hope you brought back some money because we're 
appealing for funds which will enable SUDS and OS to 
legally join the billard club. Rumour has it that EARS has 
finally changed his tobacco . . . also that our WHEELCHAIR 
EXPERT has established several speed records in the class- 
room block. Speaking of records. Brent blew three fuses in 
four minutes the other day, thanks to SAG and JIM. Ob- 
servers are suggesting that VAN D. and DAIDERS join 
ZEKE to improve the recent Common Room concerts — a 
change from the recent hockey games (NAUGHTY!). GIN 
and S.G. are in the news again with their arc lamps ; BINBIN 
(who has become quite a gymnast) never ruined radios like 
these two I J.L. and STRAW have great plans for a mid- 
night rendezvous with HOARY Jr., BULLET-HEAD, and 
HERMAN at the ski camp. They won't be the FIRST. 
AITCHY, meanwhile, has his own plans for the Coronation. 
Congratulations to AUSTRIAN AL (the ALPINEST) for 
winning the pancake toss, but what happened to DOC and 
BIG CHIP?? According to DINK and SILENT SPUD all 
Trinity are concerned over the welfare of Connie Young . . . 
BLUETT and MIKE have had their troubles too, helping 
someone with his tuxedo. MOO BABY, JAYSON BABY, 
and SKINHEAD BABY arc still trying to figure out what 
went wrong with their week-end. The recent addition to 
the dining hall wearing striped trousers with a white shirt 


and tie has caused a great deal of comment ... as has a 
certain individual in Top Dorm Bethune who has lost his 
hair! The museum has been FLYING along since DOUG 
and DEREK took over, and BIRDIE has found a most 
peculiar horn that he plays during Rabbit League games. 
G.T.'s poodle is to be the Rabbit's mascot against ST. 
HILDA'S. MEAT and ADDER are giving PAUL and BONGO 
a rough time over the dance, and if the decorations are half 
what they propose, they should be the best ever. Don't 
forget to come. You'll need a note from your MUMMY to 
get out of it, according to POO POO. 



Band leader MAGOOK and his three proteges ZEKE, 
DAIDERS & TROLLEY have been giving THE BOYS a 
run for their money in the Common Room — their murder 
music drowns out the more subtle tones emerging from 
Trinity House. 

Going up the stairs we meet THE ESSENCE OF COOL- 
NESS who jauntily wears a toque given him by . . . (never 
mind fellows — you already know) . 

The four-manner on Bottom Flat was recently a scene 
of a humorous tragedy. CLUB-FOOT MALABU was enticed 
to drink a stomach-turning potion (hair-oil & water) given 
him by BIG BLUT, who said it had the power to bring him 
down from the clouds. 

J. ANDREW, BIN-BIN, has now entered the dubious 
circle of the THRICE-NICKNAMED; his latest— SPIKE ! 

Poor station master GEELUX has had no response 
from THE OUTER WORLD in his recent appeal on his in- 
genious device — we wish him luck. 


Other people who have been afflicted are those who due 
to the closing of PHIP'S SUPERMARKET, have had to 
spend the nights on empty stomachs. 

We proceed to Middle Dorm where the silence is sud- 
denly broken by LEM and CLEM, THE HAYSEED CROON- 
ERS. Amid all the uproar BILL, THE PEBBLE OF KING- 
STON, (not to be confused with the Rock of Gibraltar) 
rolls down the aisle thinking of Home. 

Further down the hall DON'S room has become the 
RENDEZ-VOUS of such maniacs as MITCH & MOUTHY 
who wish to learn CHARLESTON and other vigorous dances. 
BROCKS, his roommate, sits huddled over some mysterious 
letters which he has been receiving lately — mysterious be- 
cause they involve some thrilling device of communication 
known as STAMP-LANGUAGE. The suspense has become 
so great that he would very much appreciate the help of a 
skilled detective. 

MIMI, man's best friend (or Mr. G.T.'s as the case may 
be) is certainly not the newboy's for the latter have to take 
the quadruped on its morning rounds receiving only frozen 
hands and ears for their pains. 

Top Flat seem to have been rather quiet these last 
mornings — especially the four-manner whose inmates seem 
to be having trouble getting up. KIT and MOUSE each 
have only one ambition in life — the former to add super 
jet thrust to his TAKE-OFF, and the latter to apologize to 
a certain BELLE for his unthoughtfulness. 

We close with a last fatherly message to the POOR 
LITTLE CHAPS next Door — we hope this proverb will help 
them (unsuspecting souls) through some of life's troubles. 

"It's no use running, you should start on time." 

P.S. Your turn next MONKEY. 


And while it was yet right early, he arose and looking 
around him, saw that it was not yet day, and it pleased him

And he went and struck upon the brass, long and 
vehemently, yea he struck twice in half as many minutes 
upon the brass, and it pleased him much. 

But behold, they that were also in the same abode were 
wrath and angered mightily at being so aroused and they 
sware all manner of evil against him in their hearts, for 
his name was Sees-Kott. 

And he went forth and threw open portals, and finding 
some yet asleep, cast them from their beds with mighty arm 
and voice crjing "Oh, get up you lazy brute!" And they 
were afrighted and rose up straightway for the discipline 
of the Brentites was good. 

And there came to this place (as in all good House 
Notes) travellers from afar, praising (as travellers are 
wont) the wondrous battlements of Brent and marvelling in 
the beauteous faces of the inhabitants, but deploring the 

unsightly and ridiculous burrows of the B hard by. 

(Editor's note — "We must not be beastly to Bethune"). 

Now this was in the time w^hen Meet-Hook and Stan- 
Lee and Sid-Nee called Cito and Hue-E were tetrarchs of 

And they were wont to fight amongst themselves with 
Poo-Poo and Foo-Foo. And in midst of the smoke one would 
find Bee-Kee and Giff-phen and Joo and Ike. 

And Sandys-Kott did not purloin his foresworn quota 
of manna from the banquet (?) hall and was ostracized 
and was comforted by Spice, the w^histling custodian of the 
Silver Chariots. 

And decree went out from the King that all the world 
should have a holiday of four days. And there was much 
rejoicing. And behold some came and cried innocently 
"Wherefore goest thou Skip?" and others, "playest thou in 
a cast Max?" 

And behold, when the time for riotous living was come 
to an end, they returned again to the magnificent splendour 
of the (icy) marbled corridors and luxui'ious hangings that

all life was abundant in Brent. 


In days of old, when brave Prometheus brought 

The spark of fire to the shivering earth 

From high Olympus' peak. 

The lofty seat of godly mirth 

He freed poor Man, who was with cold distraught. 

From age to age, each day the flame has burnt; 

Through times of peace and war has shone its light — 

A beacon in the dark. 

No storm of war, no armoured might 

Has quenched it; yet man's lesson must be learnt. 

Though dimmed by lust for power of selfish men, 

Today the flame continues in its task 

Of sending forth to Man 

Its ray of hope; and PEACE, for which we ask, 

May reign upon this troubled world again. 

—P. W. A. Davidson, VA. 



He looked at me then, and his lips twisted in a half- 
smile, and I saw quiet liking. I saw sincerity in those deep 
dark eyes, I saw honour in the slightly open mouth. I saw 
conscious pride in the well-brushed hair, I saw character in 
the heavy eyebrows, and I saw strength in the strong neck. 
And he laughed, a sincere, humorous, deep laugh which 
squeezed his dancing eyes, and I saw laughter and happiness, 
and an infinite happiness spread to me, and overpowered 

It was then I placed him on a pedestal, to look up to 
always, to do only what was in accordance with his views, 
to admire, to turn to him for advice, to be my guide. For 
he could do no wrong — he controlled me, for he was always 

He was all that I wanted to be, he had all that I wanted 
to have, he lived the way I wanted to live, he thought the 
way I wanted to think, he was the person I wanted to be. 
It was as if I was a spirit, and he was a material body, and 
his body was there for my spirit, and then I could cast away 
my old body, and become unity with him, and that was my 

But then one day the pedestal cracked. I tried to patch 
it, but it crumbled, and he sank down. I tried to rebuild it, 
but his weight had become too heavy for it. I looked at him, 
but he laughed, and the vision vanished. 

--E. A. Day, VTS. 


In ten awe-struck seconds the lives of 100,000 Cana- 
dians would be crushed as if by the power of the Almighty. 
This thunder clap of destruction would wipe out an industrial 
centre and thus affect the lives of the inhabitants of the 
modern era. The cause — one high-flying silver bird ejecting 
from her bowels the most terrifying creation of science to- 
day — the Atomic Bomb. The reason — one which could not 


be described in a lifetimie, and if it could be, the author would 
be the dictator of the world. Until we of North America are 
sure that this deliverer of heaven or hell cannot penetrate 
oui' wide domain we will never understand the feeling of 

It seems obvious, owing to the nature of science today, 
that air power is a necessity as an insurance that our way 
of life will continue. It is very possible in the case of a third 
world war, that before we have read about its commence- 
ment, it will be over. Thus the expansion of Canada's Air 
Force, no matter how costly to the taxpayer, is the primary 
and most urgent factor in guarding against sudden defeat 
should that war occur. It must not be thought though, that 
air power is the answer to all military problems. The im- 
portance of armed might on the seas and on the land has 
not decreased; however, the importance of strength in the 
air has increased, and so increased that we must not hesitate 
to pour effort and money into the defense of our skies if 
we wish to obtain someday the feeling of security for our 

Science has today divided modern air defence into two 
definite sections : squadrons of fighters and an early warning 
web of radar stations. The R.C.A.F. in its huge expansion 
programme is building up these two sections to meet the 
necessary requirements in its main emphasis on an aerial 
defence system. In this connection the R.C.A.F. is working 
closely with the United States, for in event of air attack, it 
would be senseless to talk about boundary lines between our 
two nations. 

In dealing with the first section three fighter squadrons 
have been equipped with Canadian built F-86 Sabres, being 
produced by Canadair Limited, of Montreal. These speedy 
day-fighters, which have proved their mettle in Korea, will 
be used to equip fighter squadrons based in Canada to 
operate in connection with the U.S.A.F. in the aerial defense 
of North America. Other squadrons, equipped with F-86 
Sabres, will be sent to Europe and England to form part of 
the Integrated Force under General Ridgeway. Our Cana- 



dian designed and built CF-100 Canuck, produced by A. V. 
Roe (Canada) at Malton, is scheduled to come into service 
shortly. It will be used initially at an operational training 
unit and, as further aircraft come off the production line, 
will be used to equip all-weather squadrons. Military critics 
feel that this all-weather fighter will prove a very effective 
element in oui' aerial defence system. Although these are 
the only non-obsolete fighters the Air Force included in its 
build up programme, it is making great use of its Vampire, 
Mustangs, T-33's and Harvards to train young Canadians 
and pilots of all the members of N.A.T.O., who will soon 
have winged chariots of the modern era to guide through 
the uttermost atmospheres in the defence of our freedom. 

The importance of radar has been greatly under- 
estimated because there has been so little publicity concern- 
ing it. Without early warnings from radar, all the F-86s and 
all the CF-lOOs to be built in the next several years, would 
be little better than useful objects to have for air shows. On 
the definitely restricted list are any details about the radar 
screen that is being built up across the Canadian North and 
aroimd key Canadian cities. The glimpses that have been 
caught of the plans for Canada's radar defences show that 
there are many holes in the radar fence, but that with the 
help of the U.S., these are being rapidly plugged. This U.S. 
participation is a bit galling to those who are apt to be up- 
set by such apparent manhandling of Canadian sovereignty, 
but practically speaking, obtaining U.S. help was the only 
course that could be chosen, since Canada could not hope 
to cover her entire length and breadth with radar stations 
without crippling the country's economy. The Canadian 
system is therefore being developed as a connecting link of 
the American chain, concentrating on early warning and 
"target area" defence. 

The R.C.A.F.'s place in the sun is not just as a defender 
of Canada. It is part of a larger scheme of things which in- 
clude defence of North America from attack from the North, 
and defence of Europe from attack from the East. These 


directions jx)int as strongly to Russia as my beliefs point to 
the statement that "Canada's defence is your business, too," 
for as long as the Canadian i^eople remain ignorant about 
what their money is needed for, so they will never have the 
feeling of security.

There the cairn stood, silhouetted, sable 
Before the darkening orb o'er hostile gorse 
The 'graven stones of past and fatal thought, 
Mass grave of highland hearts. Held unable 
Transfixed, touched tragic, turbulent remorse, 
Throughout my mind with sordid sense distraught 
Was flooding. 

Here Scotland's flower fell, and brave men bowed. 
Here, haggard, travel-worn, the clans threw on 
Their warlike targs, and charging fell a prey 
To the cruel sideways thrust. Standing cowed, 
The moody, passioned left wing looked upon 
Killed kinsmen; treacherous through pride that day, 
Not stirring. 

Coming night broke on my meditation. 

A rising wind swift-sweeping that bleak moor 

Whistled 'twixt rocks, requiem of passion! 

Stained shades of a soiled cockade. The dour

The old building was now to be razed. It was a solid 
structure, historical to the inhabitants of the small town, 
and they did not want it to go. A wealthy man from out of 
town had bought the property and a store was going up in 


place of the ancient edifice. It was a lofty thing, dirty-grey, 
and rather ugly too, but the people loved it. That a past- 
president of the United States had slept there years ago was 
an assumed fact and it was also believed that John A. Mac- 
donald had known the place well. The town was proud of 
these things. The workmen were booed, as they approached 
the doomed building to start "operation downfall," as the 
people called it. First the mullioned windows were removed 
followed by the thick oak doors. The former were going to 
a Montreal auction, the latter to some rich American for his 
collection of old pieces. The whole population was present, 
some angry, others sad, and the more recent inhabitants of 
the place just interested. Stone by stone, wall by wall, it 
came down, like some giant monster slowly lying down. When 
it was over the local newspaper described the events as "a 
great loss to the community" and even went so far as to 
say that "we can't predict a very happy future for the new 
store." So it was finished then, except in the minds of the 
people. There the building would live forever.

While the clock at home was striking half -past seven 
one September evening, my friend and I softly paddled our 
dark green canoe about the lake. On every side, hills and 
mountains rose up and encompassed us. These slopes were 
completely covered with trees that had turned to a glorious 
array of colours, some yellow and orange and others a deep 
red. These colours made us feel that we were surrounded 
by a mass of dark flame. Each tree in itself seemed like a 
reddish golden staircase reaching to the world above. As 
we headed for a small hidden inlet we heard the loons call- 
ing to themselves. This noise echoed back and forth across 
the water. When we had passed through this narrow rocky 
channel and neared the loons, the calling ceased and then 
with a little splash, they dived beneath the surface and 
emerged far behind us. Having glided smoothly across the 


calm water we came close to the heron having his evening 
meal. When he saw us, he started to beat his vast wings 
and very slowly he took off to go fishing in peace somewhere 
else. Next we landed on Two Pine Point where there are 
two old pine trees stretching their graceful arms out over 
the water. As we stepped ashore breaking a few fallen twigs, 
an exhausted and hungry coon slunk away to his home in 
the heart of the forest. 

On our way home we could hear the large bull-frogs 
uttering their deep harsh note. Then as it got darker we 
could see the Northern Lights tracing vivid patterns all 
across the sky. By this time the moon had risen, easting 
his yellow light in a path across the water. In this light we 
could see many bats circling round us and sometimes swoop- 
ing down on us. Now it was time for the wild animals to 
go on their midnight prowl while we slept and dreamt of 
the other beautiful autumn evenings yet to come.

A Kingdom unlike yours, my friend, 
Is one to which I often lend 
My deepest thought. 

A Kingdom queer and out of place 
With evil men from every race 
Who plan and plot. 

These are those who live apart 

From all fair play and God's kind heart 

To damn their souls. 

Now if these sinners, when they die, 
Do not look well in Our Lord's eye 
How then, may I? 

— H. D. Molson, V. 



This quotation when put into simpler language means 
that there is no conceivable art to find out what the mind 
is thinking from the face, but there are many ways of 
demonstrating that this statement is basically false. There 
is a way to find out what is going on in someone's mind 
from his face. All of us can tell to some extent what an- 
other person is thinking, and we do this from his face. 

One way to prove this to yourself is to ask someone to 
cover the lower part of his face with a book leaving only 
his eyes visible to you. If he adopts a certain facial ex- 
pression, such as a smile, you can see from his eyes alone, 
that something is amusing him. There is a twinkle in his 
eye. If, however, he is annoyed, his eyes become narrow and 
you can predict his annoyance. How much easier then is 
it to tell the mind's construction when the subject's mouth 
is visible? One of the first things taught to art students is 
that an upward curve of the mouth reveals a happy state of 
mind and a downward curve of the mouth reveals a de- 
pressed and unhappy state of mind. Have you ever seen a 
child's facial expression when he or she is admiring some- 
thing in a shop window? His desire for the top is, in a 
much repeated phrase, written all over his face. As we grow 
older we try to reach a state where our facial expression 
will not give us away. But even when human beings become 
expert at concealing their thoughts, they never seem to be 
able to do so completely. Sometimes small children can read 
grief or despair in their parent's eyes and say, "What is 
the matter. Daddy?" Dogs also can sense despair, although 
whether they read it from your face or not is hard to prove. 
Nevertheless, they do seem to be staring at your face when 
they feel sympathy for you. 

Some of the great artists have captured facial expres- 
sion so that we can tell from a painting what is going on 
in the subject's mind. On many Christmas cards this year 
there will be pictures of a Madonna and her child. We can 



see on the face of the Madonna that there is nothing but the 
purest of thoughts in her mind — we can find the mind's con- 
struction in the face. The painter of the Mona Lisa knew 
that people like to read the minds of others through their 
faces. The Mona Lisa has a very slight suggestion of a 
smile upon her face. Men have been trying for a long time 
to read the mind of the Mona Lisa and this fact has account- 
ed for the picture's great renown. In Shakespeare's play, 
Macbeth, facial expression plays an important part in the 
banquet scene. Even if Macbeth had not spoken, the guests 
would have known he was experiencing mental struggle 
from his face. They might even have guessed that he was 
seeing a ghost. Lady Macbeth realized that they thought 
Macbeth was behaving oddly and she realized this from their 
faces. Certainly, disproving King Duncan, there is no special 
art to finding the mind's construction in the face.

A sporting delegation to the States brings back alien 
sweat shirts and a handsome trophy. Unfortunately they 
brought no winter with them but the circuit of their toui' 
did not include Florida. The skiers will have to wait. Visions 
of schuss and slalom, of broken ankles super-diagonals are 
dissolved in the puddles found in disheartening profusion 
on the campus. The swimmers might make it to tuck though. 
What, no clorine? Charts have been prepared to show the 
latest fashions in weather. It snows abundantly on Monday. 
Snowballs describe fascinating ellipses in the air. Intra- 
House fights break out. No quarter is asked in these but 
they are given, for windows are broken due to the accuracy 
or otherwise of the combatants — a painful experience. Tues- 
day we find critically damp and on Wednesday there is no 
snow at all and so everyone goes to extra study. Thursday, 
like Monday is blanketed in snow. Cameras frantically 
record the beauties of winter while they last. On Friday 
there has been enough thaw to allow fishing through the 
ice and grace is said in French for the benefit of those who 
miraculously lose the ability to speak English in the evening. 
On Saturday the snow is all gone again. Extra study again 
and on Sunday we spend our time praying for more snow 
and so it goes. Be comforted, however, in the knowledge 
that The Rabbits were victorious at Lakefield and according 
to the experts, they have not begun to show their ability.

Joe E. Glutz of Middle School Latin fame while return- 
ing to his room in Brenthune House from his jDadded cell 
in Room G, was horrified to hear barbaric sounds issuing 
from the old Chapel. Out of the uproar of cheering, booing, 
stamping of feet, and clapping of hands he began to single 
out several words more prominent than others; they were 
"Eskimos" and "Torontonians." Originally coming from 
Montreal, he immediately saw the similarity between the 
two and, wondering what could be causing such a terrible 
argument, he peeked through the keyhole into the old Chapel 

Suddenly all noise ceased. Something in the far end 
of the room held everyone's attention. A voice became appar- 
ent out of the deep, expectant silence. It was saying some- 
thing about Wirkowski fading back to pass. The voice in- 
creased in volume until it finally shrieked out the words "It's 
complete to O'Connor, and he's in the clear." Then Joe 
noticed through the maze of waving arms and wildly jiunp- 
ing bodies a small white screen. The fog around his brain 
began to break up and he realized that he was watching 
the Grey Cup Game on television. Yes, Trinity had fallen 
prey to this new scientific horror although it was to last 
for only one afternoon. 

Joe, nevertheless, enjoyed himself immensely, but he 
could not understand either why four lines of printing which 

"Transmission trouble 

is only temporary; 

do not adjust 

your set," 
were televised instead of the third quarter, or what Sweet 
Caporal Cigarettes had to do with football.

No doubt you are familiar with the fact that the T.C.S. 
first hockey team journeyed south to Princeton, N.J., during 
the latter part of the Christmas holidays, returning as the 
first Canadian team to win the Lawrenceville Invitation 
Tournament. The other schools taking part were Belmont 
Hill, winners in 1952, Noble and Greenough, Exeter, An- 
dover, Deerfield, Nichols, and the host school, Lawrenceville. 
It was certainly an honour to be invited to this event, and 
the competition was keen. The advantages of a long season 
with good ice which we enjoy here at T.C.S. were revealed 
in superior skating ability. Such an advantage will be short 
lived, however, as most of the schools who competed in the 
tournament are either now practising on artificial ice or 
shortly hope to do so. 

It was indeed a great pleasure to play against such good 
sportsmen; in the three games we played there were only 
two penalties, both against our team. I am afraid I do not 
feel entirely confident that a visiting baseball team from the 
United States would get the rousing support from Canadian 
spectators that we enjoyed at Princeton from the Ameri- 
cans. On behalf of the T.C.S. Hockey team, I should like to 
thank all those who helped to make the Tournament one 
that we will not soon forget. 


Bigside, for the young team they are, have been doing 
very well so far this year, although lately there has been 
a slight, what we might call, "mid-season slump." The team 
captain is Mike dePencier, with Bob Arnold as Vice-captain. 
The Middleside squad have Mike Mather as Captain and 
Colin West as Vice; it seems that Mr. Key has an excellent 
team once again this year, and we wish him the best of 
luck in their training games. Littleside, coached again by 
Mr. Hass, has lost only one game to date, and that by a 
score of 2-1. Peter Budge and Richard Seagram have been 
elected Captain and Vice-captain. It might be of interest 
to note that Littleside, at an average weight of 143 pounds 
per man, ranging from 90 to 190, outweighs the first team 
by one pound per man. 

Peter Phippen is Captain of Gym again this year, with 
Frank Blackburn as Vice-captain. Mr. Armstrong is looking 
after coaching duties, and various meets have been arranged, 
an account of which will appear in the next issue. Also 
under the watchful eye of Mr. Armstrong, Bigside Basket- 
ball is being coached this year by Captain Kit Cowan, and 
are doing very well, making up in speed what they lack in 
height. Doug Colbourne is Vice-captain, and Tim Ryley is 
looking after the Junior School. 

Squash is again drawing many adherents this year, 
and we congratulate Captain Anthony Lafleur who has 
done extremely well personally by winning the Ontario 
Junior Championship. The swimming team, under Mr. 
Hodgetts, although lacking in experience, is training 
very hard, and has done quite well in their meets so 
far. John Gordon is Captain of this team. Another form 
of aquatics has been introduced this year, by Mr. Marigold, 
namely, water polo. This strenuous form of marine exercise 
has been enthusiastically taken up by quite a number of 
boys, and heated contests have been taking place on Sunday 
afternoons in the pool.

In two games played before the Christmas Holidays, 
the first team defeated Port Hope Juveniles 6-0 and Trinity 
"A's" 4-2. The first game was a slow, ragged one, 
with both teams lacking polish around the net. Port Hope 
was very weak in checking in their own end, while T.C.S. 
showed some bright spots both offensively and defensively. 
In the Trinity game, Church and Donald provided the 
scoring punch in a very well contested game. Old Boys Chris 
Ketchum and Nobby Clark played well for Trinity College, 
but lack of practice seemed to be the deciding factor in the 
4-2 setback their team suffered. 


Hobart Baker Rink, Princeton, N.J. 

With a practice the day before, the team was more or 
less warmed up for their first game against Andover. Archie 
Church started the scoring in the first period on a nice solo 
effort, being closely followed by a goal by Skip Yale from 
a goal-mouth scramble. However, the Andover team seemed 
to come to life, and for the rest of the period gave Mc- 
Caughey and a loose T.C.S. defense, many hectic moments. 

The second period saw the "Canucks" run out of gas, 
the only goal being scored by Mike dePencier on a pass 


from Dave Osier. However, Church started off the third 
period scoring his second goal, and seconds later, combined 
with Jack Mills, who made the score 5-0. Andover tried very 
hard to get an organized attack going, but seemed unable 
to combine successfully. The line of Yale, dePencier and 
Osier finished off the scoring with a goal apiece, to make 
the final total 8-0. Ron McCaughey played extremely well 
in the Trinity goal, while Church and Yale did some very 
prolific scoring. 

At 9.30 that night the team again returned to the rink 
and prepared itself to meet the Noble and Greenough team, 
last year's runners-up, and one of the tournament favour- 
ites. Noble iced a comparatively big, well-balanced team, 
and their captain and goalkeeper, Jim Bailey, was a stand- 
out throughout the game. 

The first period went scoreless, with both teams missing 
close chances and it was not until the middle of the second 
period that dePencier rounded the Noble defence and sank 
the puck behind Bailey to give his team a one-goal lead. 
Minutes later Dave Osier took a pass from Tony Higgins to 
make the score 2-0 at the end of the period. 

In a wide-open third period, the puck moved up and 
down the ice in frequent rushes by both teams, but the 
goalies rose to the occasion every time. In the dying min- 
utes of the game. Archie Church added another goal, giving 
Trinity a decisive but hard fought victory. 

In the championship game of the tournament, played on 
SatuMay afternoon, the School defeated Nichols, 1949 
champions, to become the 1953 winners. T.C.S. proved them- 
selves very able and their speed and superior play-making 
was too much for the Nichols' squad. 

In the opening minutes of play Nichols swarmed around 
the Trinity net, but Church stole the puck and raced the 
length of the ice to score unassisted. Nichols had several 
opportunities to score, but they were thwarted by the g^eat 
work of the School's defencemen and goalie. 

In the second period the School unleashed a strong 
attack, smothering the Nichols' defence. Skip Yale scored 


first with dePencier assisting. Three minutes later, on a 
pass from John Seagram, John Cumberland talUed. The only 
Nichols score came when Heally netted a goal on a pass 
from Brown. Then the School was well out in front when 
Cumberland scored again. In the dying minutes of the 
period Church slipped the puck past Goalie Doyle to make 
the score 5-1. 

The action in the third period slowed down as the tired 
Nichols squad tried in vain to lessen the gap. With eight 
seconds to go, Yale scored on a pass from Higgins, to make 
the final total read 6-1 for T.C.S. 

Church, Higgins and dePencier were selected for the 
All-Star team, the latter being voted the most valuable 
player of the tournament by the coaches and officials. 

T.C.S. vs. ZETES 

At Port Hope, January 10. I>o«t 2-5 

In their first game after the holiday the School was 
beaten by the Zeta Psi Fraternity 5-2. The Zetes proved to 
be a faster team and were able to capitalize on their oppor- 
tunities, while the School seemed unable to develop then- 
plays well. 

In the first period, after a sustained attack by the 
Zetes, McMurty tallied with Ketchum assisting. Five min- 
utes later Ketchum scored with McMurty assisting, making 
the score 2-0 at the end of the first period. 

The only scoring in the second came in the opening 
minutes of play when Bill Meridith scored, with Ketchum 
getting the assist. The School showered the Zetes' goalie 
Woody Fisher from all angles but were unable to score. 

In the third period the School got off to an early start, 
Mike dePencier getting an unassisted goal. Minutes later 
John Cumberland scored and Pete Giffen got the assist. The 
School then desperately tried to overcome the one-goal 
margin but without avail. The Zetes retahated with Farqu- 
harson and Meridith tallying, to give their team a decisive

On January 17, a challenge game between the T.C.S. Old 
Boys of Montreal and the Old Boys of Toronto was played 
on our rink. The game saw many old "flashes" return, and 
all but three of the players were former Trinity first team 
standouts. The end of the first period saw the score tied 
4-all, and when the second period also became history, 
Montreal had taken a one-goal lead, 5-4. The Quebecites' 
better condition ( ? ) began to pay off in the final stanza, 
and banging in four goals, they went on to win 9-5. Toronto 
complained the victory was forfeit due to the four-goal per- 
formance of import Dorion from Montreal, and they went 
back to that great city they call home, with talk of a return 
engagement next year. 

Tiironto: Austin, dePencier, Gilbert, Osier, McDonough, Hyde, Sea- 
igram, Chitty, Ketchum, Hall, McGillivray, Deverall, Howard. 

Montreal: Domville, Timmins, Bruce, Little, Dorion, Wright, Maier, 
McGill, Moffat. Scowen, Cayley. 

At Port Hope, January 17. Won 8-2 

A strong T.C.S. team proved to be easy victors as they 
downed the Delta Upsilon Fraternity 8-2 on home ice. 

From the opening whistle the Port Hopers pressed the 
attack and were rewarded midway through the first frame 
when Higgins. on a nice pass from Seagram, opened the 
scoring. Minutes later a Yale to dePencier effort clicked, 
followed quickly by a second counter off the latter's stick. 
Both teams scored once before the period ended, the School 
on a goal by Higgins, from Seagram, and Ksiazek notched 
one for the visitors. 

Johnson scored early in a tougher second period while 
soon after, dePencier completed his hat-trick, assisted by 
Yale. Two T.C.S. Old Boys figured in the next goal when 
Ken Wright snared a pass from Bruce Little to score for 
the visitors. 

The final stanza proved much less exciting as counters 
by Arnold and Brown closed the scoring in a good game. 


T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, Januarj' 24. Won 3-1 

With goalie Henri Lafleur playing a standout game, 
T.C.S. gained a 3-1 victory over the visiting S.A.C. team in 
a close, hard-fought game. 

The first period started fast with both teams coming 
close many times. Giffen opened the scoring on passes from 
Cumberland and Higgins to put T.C.S. out in front. Minutes 
later Yale sent the home team further ahead as he broke 
away from the closely pursuing S.A.C. defence to sink the 
rubber behind goalie Murphy. S.A.C. let loose with every- 
they had after this goal, but Lafleur rose to the occasion 
and, by sensational net-minding, kept the desperate visitors 
off the score-sheet for the remainder of the period. 

The second stanza went scoreless, but was very fast. 
S.A.C. had a definite edge in the play as they bombarded 
goalie Lafleur from all angles. Hard checking was a feature 
of this frame with four penalties being handed out, of which 
three were given to the visitors. S.A.C. went all out to score 
in the third period, but good defensive play by the home 
team held them in check. T.C.S. had their chances, too, when 
on successive occasions, Johnson, dePencier and Church 
came close. Midway through the period, a defensive error 
resulted in a goal by S.A.C, which was credited to Bill 
Shearson. Less than twenty seconds later. Brown took the 
puck from his own blue line and in an inspired rush stick- 
handled down the ice, split the defense and scored on a per- 
fect shot to the corner, marking the final score 3-1. 

T.C.S. vs. L.P.S. 

At Lakefield, January 28. Won 4-3 

In a very evenly contested game with the Grove, the 
School was able to emerge with a 4-3 victory. As usual, 
the Grove iced a very able team and the outcome was in 
doubt for the first two periods. 

The action in the first period took place for the most 
part in centre ice with the odd sustained attack. The only 


scoring occurred when Ramsey tallied for the Grove and 
Ryder assisted. 

Within the first minute of the second period dePencier 
scored for the School, with Dave Osier getting the assist. 
The School swarmed continually around the Grove net but 
were unable to score. It was during one of these attacks 
that Ryder broke away to score for the Grove, ending the 
scoring for the period. 

A more determined School team stepped on the ice for 
the third period. They continually repelled the Grove attacks 
and eventually Archie Church tallied twice on passes from 
Jack Mills and Pat Burns. Then dePencier added to this 
count with Osier assisting. The Grove tried desperately to 
tie things up and Uren scored with Ramsey getting the 
assist. The remaining minutes saw many fine plays by the 
Grove, but the Trinity defense proved to be too capable, 
and the School retired the victors by a score of 4-3. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Port Hope, January 31. Lost 4-2 

Although playing good hockey, Bigside lost to a pow- 
erful U.C.C. team who scored a convincing 4-2 victory. 

From the very start, both teams fought furiously to 
gain an early lead. However, the goalies, Lafleur of T.C.S. 
and Goodwin of U.C.C, deftly turned aside shot after shot. 
At last the home team's efforts were rewarded midway 
through the opening period as Pat Burns took a pass from 
Jack Mills to blast a close-in shot past the U.C.C netminder. 
Minutes later, Henri Lafleur showed brilliant style in turning 
away three rushes by the determined U.C.C. forwards. T.C.S. 
was excellent defensively as they kept the visitors off the 
score-sheet for the remainder of the frame. 

Th Toronto boys went berserk in the second stajiza 
with three goals to jump ahead of the striving T.C.S. squad. 
U.C.C. scored first in a goal-mouth scramble when Lindsay 
batted the puck home. Only two minutes later the visitors 


went out in front 2-1 as McKay beat Lafleur on a high shot 
which gave the goaltender no chance. T.C.S. then applied 
the pressure and swarmed around the U.C.C. net, but were 
unable to score a goal. Standing of U.C.C. notched the third 
goal to close the period in favour of Upper Canada. 

The third period proved to be the best with both teams 
skating fast and checking hard but no goals were scored 
until the six minute mark when U.C.C, with a man in the 
penalty box, clinched the game on a hard drive by Brown. 
The T.C.S. team showed a lot of spirit as they drove all the 
harder and at last scored when Yale made good a Brown to 
Osier combination. This counter closed the scoring in a 
good, fast game. 

T.C.S. vs. B.K.C. 
At Port Hope, February' 7. Tied 5-5 

A determined T.C.S. rally which came late in the last 
period enabled the home team to gain a 5-5 draw in the 
annual game with Ridley. 

T.C.S. profited by a speedy start as Brown put his team 
out in front two minutes after the opening whistle on a high 
shot which gave the B.R.C. goalie no chance. Only a minute 
later Giffen capitalized on a Ridley defensive error to make 
it 2-0. Fast rushes were executed by the ever-improving 
visitors as the period wore on, but the Port Hopers managed 
to repel them until mid-way through the period when two 
quick goals were countered by Adams and Hutchison to even 
the score. The score now tied, both teams slowed down con- 
siderably, but nevertheless Ridley still held the advantage 
in play. The period ended with B.R.C. going ahead when 
Main took a pass from Coupland and put the rubber behind 
goalie Lafleur. 

A scoreless second frame then ensued with neither team 
showing much drive. However, there were some close calls 
but the netminders, Lafleur and Lampman, provided spectac- 
ular goal-tending. 

Two goals were scored within the first three minutes 


of the third period as Ridley's Dick Hutchison and Ron John- 
son of T.C.S. countered. 

B.R.C.'s last tally came off the stick of centre Evans 
as he manoeuvred Lafleur out of his net. T.C.S., now two 
goals behind, pressed hard and at last were rewarded when 
Pat Burns took advantage of a Ridley penalty and scored 
on a pass from Archie Church. Skip Yale tied it up on a 
pass from Bob Arnold with only four minutes left to play 
and thus closed the scoring in one of the best games of the 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C. 
At Maple Leaf Gardens, February 14. Lost 3-0. 

In their return game with U.C.C. the School was de- 
feated by a 3-0 score at Maple Leaf Gardens. The game was 
evenly contested until U.C.C. broke loose in the third period. 
Both teams gave an excellent exhibition of hockey and the 
pace set was an extraordinarily fast one. 

There was no scoring in the first period but both teams 
made several sustained rushes. 

The only scoring in the second period occurred when 
Mitchell put the puck past Lafleur on a pass from Standing. 
The School had several opportunities to score but the U.C.C. 
goalie Goodwin proved too strong a barrier. 

For the first two periods, the School played a very de- 
fensive game and kept their more experienced opponents 
bottled up. However, in the effort to tie the score in the 
final period, U.C.C. was able to take advantage of some open- 
ings that presented themselves and two goals by Brown and 
McKay clinched the game for Upper Canada. The only real 
chance in the period came when Mike dePencier fought 
through the U.C.C. defense only to have Goodwin make an- 
other terrific save. 


At Port Hope, Febrimrj' 14. Lost 6-5. 

An overwhelming third period splurge gave the visiting 


Alpha Delta Fraternity a close 6-5 victory over T.C.S. 

The School dominated the first period by outskating 
and outscoring their slower opponents. Capt. dePencier of 
the home team tallied the first goal as he took a pass from 
Yale to send his team out in front. This counter was followed 
quickly by three others, one each off the sticks of Mills, 
Cumberland and Seagram. The Fraternity's first goal came 
at the fifteen minute mark when Yeigh beat the T.C.S. goaler 
Ron McCaughey. Burns, of the home team, finished the first 
period scoring as his team-mate, Church, earned an assist. 

The Alpha Delts scored twice in the second frame with 
Stewart and Yeigh earning the laurels. McCaughey showed 
brilliant style as he blocked many Fraternity efforts. 

Hard-fighting Yeigh earned a hat-trick early in the last 
stanza on a solo effort. Applying tremendous pressure, the 
Alpha Delts clicked twice within a minute when Robertson 
and Hargraft turned a sure-defeat into a hard earned victory. 

Bigside Team Line-up: dePencier (Capt.), Arnold ( Vice-Capt.), 
Yale, Osier D., Brown, Lafleur H. P., McCaughey, Church, Mills, 
B\ims P., Donald, Giffen, Seagram, Cumberland, Higgins A., Johnson, 
Scott C, Mason (Mgr.). 


Middleside played its first game against S.A.C. at 
Aurora. Leslie gave Trinity its first goal and Mather tallied 
again on a long shot later in the period. The team held off 
the Saints during Mather's penalty to end the period. The 
only score in the hard fought second period came when Bate- 
man scored on a close-in shot assisted by Marpole. Early 
in the third, Trowsdale scored another goal and later in the 
period Watson drove in another during a scramble. S.A.C. 
tried hard to score and were rewarded when Mott deflected 
a shot off a Trinity stick. 

On January 31, Middleside played U.C.C. at Unionville 
and won its second game by a score of 4-1. Early in the first 
period T.C.S. took the lead on a goal scored by Tice. This 
was followed by a goal by Trowsdale in a scramble around 
the U.C.C. net. In a more ragged second period, close check- 


ing kept both teams scoreless but the early minutes of the 
third period saw Long score a beautiful goal. About midway 
in the third, Bateman made the score 4-0. Upper Canada 
had their best scoring chance in the game when Trinity were 
two men short but there was no further scoring. 

On February 4, Middleside had a scrimmage with the 
Port Hope Juveniles. T.C.S. won the fast, close checking 
game by a score of 4-0. West scored early in the first pei'iod 
on a long hard shot. In the latter part of the first period 
Marpole scored another to make the score 2-0. After fifteen 
minutes of the third period, Port Hope got a penalty and 
Bateman scored on a pass from Marpole. Before the game 
ended Watson had a goal to his credit, which was scored in 
a scramble around the net. John Parker made many good 
saves, and well deserved his shutout. 

Middleside lost their return game with U.C.C. 3-1. There 
was no scoring in the first period despite two T.C.S. penalties. 
Midway in the second period Winnett scored on a pass from 
Trowsdale, only to have U.C.C. tie the score seconds later. 
U.C.C. came back strongly in the third period and at the 
ten minute mark Elis gave the visitors the lead. Six minutes 
later Elis scored again, followed by a goal by Taylor clinch- 
ing the game. On the whole T.C.S. lacked the drive they 
usually have; it was the second loss in three years that Mr. 
Key's Middleside have experienced. 

The Team — Mather (Capt.), West (Viee-Capt.), Dunlop, Tice, 
Anstis, Marpole, Bateman, MacCosham, Long, Leslie, Ketchum, W.it- 
son, Trowsdale, Winnett, Coriat, Parker. 


Littleside opened its season with a decisive 6-3 victory 
over Lakefield, played at the Grove. T.C.S. went ahead with 
a goal by Richard Seagram early in the first period, but 
Lakefield quickly tied the score. Bill Hyland put Trinity 
ahead again as he rapped in four tallies in the second stanza 
while L.P.S. retaliated with two. A goal by Cristall in the 
third period completed the scoring. 


In their second game Littleside emerged victorious over 
S.A.C. by a score of 3-2 after a close hard-fought game at 
Aurora. St. Andrew's tallied first in the opening minutes 
but an ispired Trinity team replied with three goals before 
the close of the second period. These were netted by 
Budge ii, Lash and Tollestrup. S.A.C. came back strongly 
in the final twenty minutes but sensational goal tending by 
Peter Saegert allowed them only one goal, making the final 
score 3-2 for the School. 

For its first game against Upper Canada College, Little- 
side travelled to Unionville where it played a closely con- 
tested game ending in a two-all tie. U.C.C. scored first mid- 
way through the first period but Tollestrup quickly tied it 
up. Upper Canada again went ahead with a single early in 
the second stanza. Trinity fought back strongly but were 
unable to score until, with only minutes remaining, their 
efforts were rewarded when Seagram tallied to tie the game 

In the return match with U.C.C. at Port Hope, the 
visitors emerged victorious 2-1. Before the game was one 
minute old, Elebee put the puck in the net to give the Blue 
and White a 1-0 lead. Upper Canada added another early in 
the second stanza but Peter Budge soon retaliated to score 
his team's only goal. The line of Hyland, Dunlap and Tol- 
lestrup came very close to tying the game in the dying 
minutes, but the final score saw U.C.C. the victors by a 2-1 

The Team — Budge P. (Capt.), Seagram R. (Vice-Capt.), Overholt, 
Hyland, Dunlap, Tollestrup, Lash, Boughner, Ciistall, Ross D., Camp- 
bell, Richardson, Caryer, Verral, Fairbaim, Burns, Saegert, Boake. 


With over seventy-five players participating, there are 
six teams in Mr. G.-T.'s Intramural hockey league this year, 
all of which seem to be quite evenly matched. At the end of 
the "season," the "Intellectuals," captained by Nick Thorn- 
ton, were on top of the league, one point ahead of Hugh Mol- 
son's "Casuals" and Doug MacKinnon's "Expendables." In 


fourth place were Mike Hargraft's "IneiTectuals" followed 
by Wes Mason's "Passables" and John Hierlihy's "Impas- 
sables." The playoffs are now under way, with the first 
playing the fourth and the second playing the third. 

The Rabbit All-Stars played their annual away game 
with Lakefield, and came out on top by a 5-1 count. The 
return game here should be very close and we are looking 
forward to this event. The "Second" All-Star team is train- 
ing hard for their annual struggle with St. Hilda's, which 
should prove the toughest game of the season, as it has in 
the past. 


DasKei DQ 


At Port Hope, January 17. Won 47-23. 

In their first game, Trinity showed much promise by 
defeating the Delta Upsilon Fraternity 47-23. From the 
starting whistle Trinity, led by Cowan, Ryley and Board, 
repeatedly battled their opponents in their own end. After 
rolling up a score of 24-11, Trinity continued to have ad- 
vantage of the play in the second half, going on to win by a 
score of 47-23. 

Tim Ryley led the Trinity attacks with 16 points while 
Kit Cowan and John Board got 13 and 11 respectively. 

T.C.S.— Ryley i (16), Cowan (13^ Board (11), Ryley ii (4), Good- 
man (2), Colboume i (1), Colbourne ii, Walker, Harris, Polak. 


At T.C.S., January 21. Won 46-20. 

In their second game of the season, Bigside easily 
emerged victorious over P.H.H.S. by a score of 46-20. It was 
a close-checking game right from the start, but T.C.S. soon 
began to pull away from their less experienced rivals. At 
the end of the half, the score was 22-10 for T.C.S., and they 
more than doubled the score in the second half. Tim Ryley 
and Doug Colbourne were the high scorers for Trinity with 
14 and 11 points respectively, while Pike scored eight for 
the Port Hopers. Board played an excellent defensive game 
for the School. 

At Port Hope, January 24. Lost 86-27. 

The game opened up quickly, and it was not long before 
S.A.C. took the lead. 

With Bart Ryall spearheading the Saint's attack, they 

were leading at the end of the half by a score of 45-11. In 

the third quarter the School began to play better basketball 

and in the fourth they played S.A.C. to a standstill, but the 

lead was far too great to overcome, the Saints winning 87-27. 

Ryall with 32 points and Tejeda with 14 were the high scorers 

for S.A.C. Board of T.C.S. played an excellent defensive 


T.C.S.— Ryley i (12), Ryley ii (5), Cowan (4), Board (4), Col- 
bourne i (2), Colbourne ii, Goodman, Polak, Walker. 

At Port Hope, January 31. Won 60-49. 

In a fast, close-checking game with Upper Canada, a 
fourth-quarter rally gave T.C.S. a 60-49 victory. Using their 
height to advantage, the U.CC. team, led by Smith, rolled 
up an early lead. Switching their defensive setup, Trinity 
started to dominate the play, with Tim Ryley being very 
effective under the U.CC. basket. One point down at the 
end of the half, T.C.S. gradually wore their opponents out 


by a relentless attack. Tied going into the final quarter, 
the School had control of the ball for most of the remainder 
of the game, and went on to win 60-49. ICit Cowan and John 
Board played standout games on defence, while Tim Ryley 
led the scoring parade with 26 points. Smith and Mac- 
Conachie with 20 and 16 points respectively were best for 
the visitors. 

SCHOOL vs. B.B.C. 
At Port Hope, February 7. Lost S4.-30. 

Playing against a more experienced and bigger team, 
Eigside went down to defeat at the hands of Ridley College 
by a score of 64-30. Due to injuries, the Ryley brothers were 
unable to play but Tollestrup, brought in as a replacement, 
played a sparkling game both on offense and defense. How- 
ever, B.R.C. took the game quite easily, although the School 
never stopped trying right up to the final whistle. Kennedy 
and Jones were the high scorers for Ridley, with 15 and 11 
points respectively, while Tollestrup with 13 was top man 
for T.C.S. 

T.C.S.: Tollestrup (13). Cowan (7), Colboume (5), Boaixi (3), Gordon 
(2), Walker, Colboume ii, Adamson, Harris, Goodman. 

At Upper Canada, February 11. Won 59-58. 

A very close and exciting game saw Bigside win its 
second game of the season over U.CC, in the best game 
played in a long while. The score was tied 11 all at the end 
of the first quarter, and 27-27 at the half. Upper Canada 
pulled ahead in the third quarter, but T.C.S. sewed up the 
game, outscoring the home team 24-10 in the last quarter. 
Tim Ryley back in action once more, led the attack with 17 
points, while Cowan and Board, who played excellent de- 
fensive games as well, came next with 15 and 13 points 
respectively. Howe, with 14 points, and Smith with 13 points 
played well for the losers, 

T.C.S.— Ryley i (17), Cowan (15), Board (13), Ryley ii (7), Col- 
boume i (6), Colboume ii (1), Walker, McKinnon, Harris, Goodman. 


At Port Hope, February 14. Lost 58-48. 

Playing the second string most of the time, Bigside 
basketball bowed out to the Alpha Delta fraternity by a 
score of 58-48. The visitors took an early lead, but the game 
was close all the way. At the end of the first half T.C.S. 
was on the short end of a 24-16 score. In the second half 
the School tried hard and kept their more experienced oppon- 
ents at a standstill, but the playing of Floyd, Jackson and 
Wilson kept the A.D.'s ahead. Led by Kit Cowan and John 
Board Bigside scored 32 points in the second half to the 
fraternity's 34, making the final score 58-48. The School 
played well as a team, but the loss of Tim Ryley has been 
a bad blow to the scoring potential of the team. 

T.C.S.— Board (16), Cowan (10), Ryley ii (8), Colbourne (16), 
Polak (5), Gordon (2), Goodman (2), Colbomne ii (2), Walker. 


The Juniors coached by Tim Ryley, opened their season 
on January 31 when they met a much bigger and faster 
team from U.C.C. Lacking depth the School fought hard 
and for the first half held U.C.C. to a 15-14 lead. Upper 
Canada came back fast at the start of the second and went 
on to win the game, by commanding a 16 point margin, 
43-27. Harris, Walker and Luxton played well for T.C.S. 
while Dighen and McDermid were best for U.C.C. 

On February 11, the T.C.S. junior basketball team visit- 
ed Toronto to play U.C.C. in a return game and lost by a 
score of 41-18. The game started at a fast pace, U.C.C. 
quickly breaking into the lead to go ahead by a score of 
28-7 at the end of the half. The juniors held their rivals in 
the third quarter but were unable to get rolling themselves, 
succumbing to a 41-18 defeat. Harris with eight points, and 
Jemmet with seven played best for the School, while Ross 
with eleven points was the best for Upper Canada. 

T.C.S. — Harris, Jemmet, Mayberry, Liixton ii. Cowan ii, Fleming, 
Kells, Walker, Krohn, Fairbaim.

Over the week-end of January 17, sixteen players took 
part in the annual Trinity College School Invitation Squash 
Tournament. Among the competitors were: Mr. Eniie How- 
ard, Mr. Henry Foster, Mr. Syd Hetherington, Mr. Bill 
Minton, Mr. Jim Biddell, Mi\ John Fay, and Mr. Henry 
Hussey. Mr. Howard and Mr. Foster made clean advances 
without meeting any really threatening competition. For 
the second year in a row Howard defeated Foster by a score 
of 3-2, and as usual this game was the highlight of the 
tournament and produced a thrilling match and great 
squash. Tony Lafleur of T.C.S. defeated Mr. Jim McMurrich 
3-1 in the finals of the Consolation tournament to end the 
week-end's play. 


The School sent a team to the Badm.inton and Racquet 
Club in Toronto on the week-end of February 7 which was 
defeated three matches to two. The match proved profitable 
in experience and also produced some good squash. The 
matches were: 

Arnold Massey (T.C.S.) was defeated by P. Greey, 3-0. 
Tony Brewer (T.C.S.) defeated J. Smith, 3-0. 
Roy Heenan (T.C.S.) defeated W. Phippen, 3-1. 
Mike Higgins (T.C.S.) was defeated by D. Pinckham, 3-0. 
D'Arcy Luxton (T.C.S.) was defeated by J. Pinckham, 3-0. 

SCHOOL vs. B.M.C., At Kingston 

On Wednesday, February 18, the T.C.S. squash team 
made their annual appearance at R.M.C. and defeated their 
hosts, seven matches to two. The match was not really as 
imeven as the score might hint and all the games proved 
to be close with the R.M.C. team standing up very well 
against the School team which was in good shape. The team 
representing the School was A. Lafleur, Massey, Brewer, 


Budge, and Higgins ii. We are looking forward to meeting 
the cadets in the near future at Port Hope. 

In the consolation tournament of the annual invitation 
tourney at T.C.S. Anthony Lafleur defeated Mr, Jim McMur- 
rich 3-1 in the final. This was the first time any boy in the 
School has even won this match. After weeks or more prac- 
tice, Lafleur went with Arnold Massey to represent the 
School in the Ontario Junior Championship. Although Mas- 
sey was eliminated in the first round, Lafleur ended up in 
the finals of this tournament against Tom Jones of Ridley. 
The actual game proved to be very close with Jones losing 
out, 3 to 1. This gave Tony Lafleur the Junior Champion- 
ship of Ontario, another achievement never obtained by 
any other boy while at T.C.S. From here he went up to 
Ottawa to play in the Canadian Junior Championship. His 
opponent in the final of this tournament was Peter Slater — 
the Quebec Junior Champ — a former T.C.S. squash Captain 
himself. Slater's experienced game proved too much for his 
opponent as he went ahead to win 15-13, 15-9, 15-11, to be- 
come Canadian Junior Champion. 


In their first meet of the season, the Trinity team was 
defeated by Oakwood Collegiate Institute from Toronto by 
a score of 55-45. The meet proved to be a great success, 
showing some excellent talent for the future. 

On February 10 the swimming team met Peterborough 
Y.M.C.A. at Peterborough. Although defeated by a score of 
65-52, all our swimmers did well and gained some valuable 
experience. The individual scoring for the Trinity team 
found Captain John Gordon second in both the senior 100 
yards and the senior 200 yards free style. Ferrie and van 
der Zwaan won the senior 40 yards free style and the junior 
100 yards free style , respectively. Other point-getters for 
the School included Bingham, Bonnycastle, Jenkins, Hulse, 


Mitchell i. Cartwright, Coleman and Elderkin. The School 
relay teams did very well, winning both the senior 120 
yard and 160 yard races. 

In the return meet at T.C.S. the School were victorious 
by a score of 53-49. Gordon was the chief scorer for T.C.S. 
indi\ddually by rolling up eight points. Van der Zwaan got 
six points while Ferrie. Bonnycastle and Jenkins each got 
five, and Bingham, Mitchell, Cartwright, Hulse, Church i, 
Coleman, and Yorath were the other Trinity scorers. The 
outcome of the meet was in doubt right up to the last event. 
Trailing by one point, the Trinity 160 yard free style relay 
team won their race, the last on the programme, by a sub- 
stantial margin, giving them the points necessary for the 
victory. During the meet Phippen and Newland put on a 
fine display of diving.

In spite of the "queer" Winter, the Junior School has 
enjoyed one excellent afternoon of skating on Rice Lake. The 
ice has seldom been better and everybody had a wonderful 

Some excellent models of sailing ships have been turned 
out in the Hobby Room. Whitehead and Spence have each 
produced first-class work. 

Mr. Burns and some helpers have done a great job of 
work repairing Library books and must be well over the 
hundred mark by now. 

The Junior School joins sincerely in the many congratu- 
lations which have been sent to Ernie Howard on his magni- 
ficent squash victories. We cannot claim to have initiated 
him into the art of the game but can claim him as our only 
triple captain. 

This year we welcomed De LaSalle College to the Junior 
School for hockey. It was an excellent game and we hope 
that this may be the beginning of a very pleasant connection 
in rugby and hockey. 


This year brought an innovation to the dramatic section 
of the Junior School Christmas Entertainment. In previous 
years, each form had done its own skit or play. This year 
a larger production enabled all groups within the School to 

The play — Scenes from Alice In Wonderland — had a cast 
of thirty and a production crew of six — ranging from the 
smallest lad in Prep to the Third Formers who will leave us 
next year. The play was well received and even the weeks 
of rehearsal enjoyed by all. 

T. J. Ham as Alice played a long, difficult role with 
sincerity and warmth. The Mad Tea Party Scene, with N. 
Ketchum as the March Hare, M. Spencer as the Mad Hatter, 
and J. Tottenham as the Dormouse, was very amusing, and 


certainly the antics of P. Lazier and J. Spivak as Tweedledum 
and Tweededee respectively entertained the audience. 

A pageant play like this provides great difficulty in 
costume and setting, simple though they may be, and the 
work of stage hands D. Cape, R. Chauvin, C. English and 
E. Fraenkel was decorative and good. 

The musical portion of the Junior School Christmas 
entertainment followed closely the course of previous years, 
the theme in this case being Latin-American. A total of 
eight songs were produced, in two scenes, involving a cast 
of twenty-six boys from all grades except the Prep form. 
The back drop designed and painted by Mr. Key and the 
Art Class provided a colourful setting for the Junior School 

Fifty-two boys out of the seventy-seven registered in 
the School were involved in these productions. Their volun- 
tary group effort resulted in a pleasant entertaining evening 
for all concerned. 


If it was not for trees, the world would be a barren 
and desolate region. Think of your camp, your house, or a 
river barren of trees. Lacking shelter, these places would 
be dry and hot in the summer months, while in the winter 
you would have no protection from the howling wind and 
driving snow. Trees also preserve land from erosion. Their 
long, fibrous roots grow down into the earth, seeking 
moisture, and so keep the earth from wearing away. Think 
of the fun you would miss by burning leaves, or the splendour 
of their autumn foliage. There would be no sap to make 
maple syrup, or in fact, no wood at all to build houses, ships 
or aeroplanes. 

Trees also have another benefit. In great forests, such 
as cover Northern Canada, lives much of our wild life. Mink, 
otter and ermine need the shelter of the forest. Birds nest 
in the trees; beavers use them for houses and dams, and 
rabbits eat their bark. 


Sitting in a room at home, we seldom realize the neces- 
sity of wood: the pine log burning merrily in the hearth, 
and the walls and ceiling panelled in oak; the floor of hard- 
wood, while the paper we read probably came from a far 
northern spruce tree. Without a doubt, trees are the main- 
stay of civilization. 

— Ti-evor Ham. 


Above the surging breakers, he soars undaunted, 

By the western gale ,he spirals undaunted. 

O'er billowy waves which change the rocks from black to 

That beat 'gainst the shore all through the night. 

Circling 'round 'neath the darkened skies. 
His white wings skim. O'er the sea he flies. 
Wailing his deperate cry through storm and lull, 
Hovering overhead glides the lonesome gull. 

—P. N. Clarke, Fonri IIA2. 


Four vacant lots are transformed overnight into a 
bustling scene of human activity. Great tents are set up. 
Cages are installed and a Midway built. Even Euclid doesn't 
need a formula to know that the circus is here! 

We saunter down Fox Street and gaze at what seems 
like an astronomical number of wires, ropes and pegs hold- 
ing up small tents and Big Top alike. The ground is littered 
with much paper and trash. 

In a blare of noise we enter the big Midway. Huge multi- 
coloured lights greet us as we are carried along by the 
momentum of the crowd. 

"Hurry! Hurry!" yells the barker. "There is just time 
to see the Wild Man of Borneo or Darto the Indian knife 


Temptation calls us but our thrift wins out. Instead we 
will buy a balloon, a "hot dog," pop, ice-cream and try to 
win a cigar by hitting a little pellet with a mallet. 

Then we find ourselves out of the noise and inside the 
Big Top. Silence reigns. We look up and with the booming 
of the drums watch an acrobat do her magic on the high 
trapeze. As lithe as a cat and as graceful as a swan, we 
aie awed. 

Then we leave this circus and its booming cats, pleading 
barkers and frolicking clowns. It is night. 

We are silent. But who would talk when one comes 
away from the circus; he has too much to think about. 

— Jerry Spivak. 


Horses began their career as great fighters in prehistoric 
times. They were used in 2000 B.C. to draw Babylonian war 
chariots and in 1675 B.C. in Egypt by the Hyksos for the 
same purpose. Later they were used by the Greeks and 
Romans for their cavalry. 

Up to the 17th Century there were no stirrups but when 
they were introduced they added greatly to the comfort of 
the rider. Pack horses were used in the 16th and 17th cen- 
turies but in the 18th century better roads were made and 
a horse or two were put in front of a carriage that was 
called a stage coach. 

Later horse "trams" were introduced and at the end 
of the 19th century 40,000 horses were used in London alone 
to draw these "trams." On the invention of the motor car 
the number gradually diminished until none was left. Later 
the "motor" took over transportation of all types and now 
you will find that all, or nearly all horses are used and ridden 
for pleasure. 

— J. W. M. Angus, Form IBB 



Its hair hangs long from every view 
And as you watch you wonder who 
Is hidden 'neath that grey and shaggy coat 
A sheep, a dog, or a mountain goat. 

You're told he's one of the sheepdog set 
And is kept as a worker or a pet. 
They are quite big dogs in their suit of grey 
And they sleep in the house or on a bale of hay. 

But for the most, they're the out-door kind, 
And on a farm is where you'll find 
This shaggy species 'twixt the moving sheep 
Which they guard all day and in safety keep. 

J. T. Kennish, Form IIB. 


At first it's just a breeze that makes you feel as if some 
one were breathing down your neck. Then the winds grew 
stronger, still stronger. The cloud comes closer, still closer, 
like a wagon rolling towards you. 

Soon it is upon you like a lion leaping for his prey. It 
makes the trees bend and swing as if they had been hit by 
a charging elephant. The thunder clouds pass overhead. 
Suddenly a sharp crack is heard, followed seconds later by 
such a roll of thunder. It makes you think the firmament 
had broken in two. You rush inside your house and close 
the door and windows as if expecting a burglar. But soon 
the storm is over and the sun shines bright o'er head. 

— H. S. Ellis, Form lEB. 



The grizzly in the mountains, 
The hunter in the hide. 
The fishes in the rivers 
And the fisher on the side. 

The deer along the runway, 
With a full moon bright o'erhead 
The partridge in a covey 
And the duckling safe in bed. 

All is peace and quiet, 
Till a hawk with talons spread 
Dives down upon a field mouse; 
Soon his children will be dead. 

—P. M. D. Bradshaw, Form HB. 


Captain of Hockey D. E. Cape 

Vice-Captain A. S. Wotherspoon 

As in football, we started out from the bottom this year 
with very few of last year's squad to provide experience. 

Steady improvement has been shown by the team 
throughout the season. The defence is far more air-tight 
than at the beginning and the forwards are hungrier around 
the goal. Both Stephenson and Crowe have done excellent 
work in the nets. 


Tuesday, January 27, Lakefield at Port Hope. Won 6-3. 
During the first period Lakefield dominated the play 
with two quick goals. In the second period T.C.S. went 
ahead 4-2, and the third period found T.C.S. scoring two 
and Lakefield one. The game ended 6-3. T.C.S. scorers were 
Arkell 2, Spence 1, Gustafson 1, Cape 1, Jennings 1. 


Wednesday, February 4, U.C.C. at Port Hope. Lost 4-3. 
The first period was the one in which U.C.C. won the 
game. They scored twice in the first minute and a half. 
T.C.S. scored once in the first period; once in the second 
period; and in the third period U.C.C. scored twice and 
T.C.S. twice. U.C.C. came through on top 4-3. T.C.S. scorers 
were Jennings 2, Wotherspoon A. 1. 

Wednesday, February 11, at St. Andrew's. Won 8-5. 
This year the Junior School played the Macdonald House 
second team. The first period produced some good hockey 
on both sides and ended 4-3 in favour of St. Andrew's. Neither 
team scored in the second period. A sustained drive by T.C.S. 
produced five goals in the third period with S.A.C. scoring 
once. Cape with four goals was the high man for the School 
with Gustafson contributing two goals and Spence and 
Stephenson one each. 

Saturday, February 21, De LaSalle College at Port Hope. 

Won 6-5. 
This was our hardest fought and most even game of the 
season. It was back and forth the whole game. At the end 
of the game it was 6-5 for T.C.S. with Jennings 2, Cape 1, 
Spence 1, Arkell 1, and Wotherspoon 1 being the goal getters 
for the School. 

Wednesday, February 25, at Lakefield. Lost 6-2. 

This game was played under very poor conditions, melt- 
ing ice, and it was noticeable from the start that The Grove 
had the edge on us. The Grove won 6-2, Cape and Jennings 
being T.C.S. only scorers. 


At Varsity Arena, Wednesday, March 4. Draw 2-2 

This game provided a fitting climax to the season. Both 
teams were very well matched — as they were in football — 
and it was anybody's game until the final whistle blew. 


The School had the best of the play during most of the 
first period. Marett opened the scoring for the J.S., but 
Ridley soon tied it up. A goal by Jennings in the second 
period put the School ahead again, but Ridley evened the 
score in the third period. T.C.S. made some very determined 
drives during the third period but were unable to score. The 
goalies of both teams played an outstanding game. 


The Snipe Hockey League, in which all boys who are 
not in the First Squad take part, has provided some very 
exciting competition this year. The standard of hockey has 
improved steadily during the season. 

The final standing is as follows: 

1. NoRTORious Torpedoes (Captain Clarke) 34 points 

2. Sizzling Omelets (Captain Irwin) 29 points 

3. Happy Habitants (Captain Price) 28 points 

4. Radium Raiders (Captain Porritt) 26 points 

5. Flying Saxons (Captain English) 22 points 


Kigby 8, Orchard 2 

A very fast brand of hockey was played throughout 
the game and the play was very much closer than the score 
would indicate. Although Rigby were short of First Team 
players they made up for it by drive and spirit coupled with 
the good playing of Cape and Jennings. Mention should also 
be made of the good work done by the four "imports" from 
the Snipe League. Stephenson for Rigby and Crowe for 
Orchard. Both did outstanding work in the nets.

The School was proud to learn that Her Majesty the 
Queen had bestowed on one of our senior Governors, Dr. 
Wilder Penfield of Montreal, the Order of Merit. Dr. Penfield 
has long been internationally regarded as the most distin- 
guished neurologist and he is deeply admired as a man by 
everyone who has had the privilege of knowing him. The 
Order of Merit is the highest civilian honour, limited to 
twenty-four members of the Commonwealth. 


Cards of good wishes to the School came from several 
hundred Old Boys at Christmas time; everyone at T.C.S. 
was deeply touched by these thoughtful and generous ex- i 
pressions of good-will and interest. 


The Rhodes Scholarship Committee for Alberta an- 
nounced in December that they had chosen David C. Mc- 
Donald ('46-'49) as the Rhodes Scholar for 1952. McDonald 
has been at the University of Alberta since September 1949 
and is in the fourth year of the combined Arts and Law 
course. He will go to Oxford next autumn. 

Six T.C.S. Old Boys have now won Rhodes Scholarships 
in six years, a record unparalleled by the Old Boys of any 
other school anywhere. 

At T.C.S. McDonald was always a good student, main- 
taining averages, month by month, in the eighties. He was 


on the literary staff of the Record, on the Debating Team, 
a member of the Political Science Club, a librarian, and he 
won the Hugel Prize for an essay on Geology. He was ap- 
pointed a House Officer. 

Since he entered the University of Alberta he has taken 
a keen interest in student affairs and last year he was Chair- 
man of the Alberta Committee of the International Student 
Service; he was also on the Council of the National Federa- 
tion of Canadian University Students. In 1950 he was a 
delegate to the summer seminar in France. McDonald has 
also been president of the Debating Society, and he was on 
the staff of the student newspaper. He is this year president 
of the History Club and he plays basketball and swims. 

Other recent winners of Rhodes Scholarships were: 
1948 J. A. Patterson (Quebec), 1950 H. C. Butterfield (Ber- 
muda), 1951 W. M. Cox (Bermuda), 1952 R. L. Watts (On- 
tario), 1952, C. M. Taylor (Quebec). 


The winning of another Rhodes Scholarship and a 
further award at Western brings the number of University 
Scholarships won by Old Boys in 19 years to 128. The 
average number of boys who have entered Universities dur- 
ing the same period is not over twenty-five a year. 


The Canadian High Commissioner in London gave a 
reception in Canada House last November for the Prime 
Minister, and Minister of Finance. Canadian Rhodes Scholars 
were invited and several people commented on the fact that 
three of the Rhodes Scholars came from one School, T.C.S., 
Port Hope. They were Charles Taylor, Ron Watts and Bill 



Officer Cadet C. C. van Straubenzee ('43-'50) has won 
the Greneral Crerar Belt for leading his class in the Officer 
Cadet School at Camp Borden. The news report said that 
he commanded his class in "one of the best, if not the best, 
show of any graduation class." General Graham said he had 
never seen a better group, van Straubenzee's grandfather 
commanded the Royal Canadian Dragoons and lost his life 
leading the last mounted charge in the First World War ; his 
father, Lt.-Col. C. B. van Straubenzee ('22-'25) was second 
in command of the Three Rivers Tank Regiment in the 
Second World War.

A year ago the annual Bursary Fund appeal was in- 
corporated into a quiet campaign to provide a Sustaining 
Fund for the School. It is the belief of those who know the 
details of the financial operations of the School, and the 
vital expenditures which will have to be made very soon, 
that T.C.S. will prosper in the coming years only if a reserve 
fund of some proportion is available for emergency and most 
necessary undertakings ; we cannot afford ever again to have 
a millstone of debt around our neck. 

The objective is to collect a sum of perhaps two hundred 
thousand dollars; it will be administered by the Executive 
Committee of the Governing Body with the aim of keeping 
the capital sum intact as far as possible and using the in- 
terest for such very worthwhile needs as bursaries, par- 
ticularly to sons of Old Boys and sons of men killed in war, 
pensions to masters, etc. 

Mr. Charles Burns ('21-'25) very nobly agreed to head 
the campaign despite the fact that he had already given his 
exceptional talents and energy to the most successful direc- 
tion of the Memorial Fund with which we built the new 
Chapel. He is assisted by N. O. Seagram ('20-'26) Toronto, 
Stephen Ambrose ('27-'32) Hamilton, Colin Brown ('27-'31) 
London, Dudley Dawson ('26-'31) Montreal, and a number 
of other Old Boys.

At the annual dinner of the Toronto branch of the Old 
Boys Association, Mr. Burns appealed now for the general 
support of Old Boys and others who feel the School is worth 
preserving for the future. "There are hundreds of Old Boys," 
he said, "who would never miss a sum of twenty dollars a 
year for five years, and they should send in their subscripn 
tions without delay. Of course we must have the large 
amounts too." 

Subscription forms can be obtained from:

The Old Boys' Association, Toronto Branch, Dinner was 
held on Wednesday, November 26, at the Albany Club in

of honour was the Rev. Ramsay Armitage, Principal of 
Wycliffe College, Toronto. Other head table guests included : 

P. C. Osier, Esq., S. B. Saunders, Esq., N. O. Seagram, 
Esq., Hugh F. Labatt, Esq., R. C. H. Cassels, Esq., P. A. C.

cier, Esq., G. E. Phipps. Esq.. T. L. Taylor. Esq. 


During dinner a number of School Songs were sung. 
The Chairman, Brigadier Ian H. Cumberland, then asked 
Mr. G. W. Phipps to propose a toast to the School. This 
toast was replied to by the Headmaster, who gave a very 
amusing resume of the lighter side of School life, and re- 
viewed some of the activities at the School. 

Two very much appreciated telegrams were received 
from the Ridley and S.A.C. Old Boys' Associations. 

The Chairman then introduced Dr. Armitage who gave 
a most interesting" talk on a pilgrimage to England. He also 
stressed the high responsibility of all those who attended 
such schools as T.C.S. Mr. W. Duggan thanked the speaker 
for his kindness in coming. 

The Chairman then called upon Archbishop Renison to 
speak. Archbishop Renison responded in his usual delight- 
ful manner, mentioning some of his adventures in the North 
in the early days and emphasizing the opportunities and 
future of Northern Canada. 

A special attraction of the evening were coloured movies 
of School life at T.C.S. including views of the T.C.S.-S.A.C. 
and the T.C.S.-Ridley football games. The movies were taken 
by Owen Jones ('39-'44) and Peter Landry operated the pro- 
jector most capably.

gathering were: W. M. Pearce, W. L. Taylor, C. L. Capreol,

The fundamental reason for coming to school is to get 
an education, an education based on high academic stand- 
ing and broad in social outlook, an education which is to 
be applied to practical life and achieve man's function — true 
happiness. But do the majority of T.C.S. graduates achieve 
this ? Many boys who were leaders of the School have faded 
into obscurity after they leave, yet boys who remained in 
relative obscurity while they were here have suddenly shot 
into the field of success and achievement, striving to gain 
their purpose in life. Perhaps it is because they sat back 
and watched, and analyzed, the mistakes occurring around 
them in this our miniature scene of human endeavour in 
the world. Certainly this School does represent something 
of the outer lonely world, except that our mistakes here 
can be recognized and corrected, while in life they may spell 


failure. We must learn by our mistakes, and strive for 
achievement, that as the human race progresses, the earth 
will become a better and wiser place to live in for those who 
follow us in the progression. 

The Sixth Form suddenly comes to this realization on 
its eve of departure from the School, when it is on the verge 
of Senior Matriculation examinations, and life has become 
one important climax which will open the world to them. 
They will have a choice — right or wrong. What will influence 
this choice depends on what they have selected from this 
school life, what they have taken from it to back them when 
they are completely on their own. 

Our School offers immense opportunities not open to 
the ordinary high-school boy. A basic education is avail- 
able anywhere, but we are offered an education which is 
very close to being complete, and the extent of its influence 
depends on what each boy will absorb. Education does not 
merely mean classroom standing, but all the extra-curricular 
activities which serve to develop an interest in the problems 
of life, to broaden our outlook, to insure our health, to pre- 
pare for practical life. 

Our mind cannot function properly without physical 
health, and organized athletic games provide the greatest 
and best way of promoting it. Athletics should be a re- 
laxation which eases the strain of heavy responsibility in 
the Sixth Form, and yet educates us. They teach good sports- 
manship, they teach team play, achievement in them pro- 
vides the spur to greater achievement, and ability in them 
confers an instinctive respect. That is, they represent on a 
small good-natured scale the human struggle in life. But 
Senior Matriculation year requires no less than three hours 
extra study per day. The Sixth former must use athletics 
as a means, not a purpose, and limit his sports with that in 
mind, because his time is crowded, though he does not think 
so until June arrives. 

Our clubs are a source of preparation for life. They 
are practical applications of what we learn in class, and 


stimulate new interests. They afford relaxation with a great 
advantage. Debating, Dramatics, Political Science, Cercle 
Frangais — they all have their influence on school life, as 
any of their members who know how best to develop them- 
selves to the advantage of the club, will tell you. Perhaps 
we could do with a special time set aside every week in the 
second term for clubs, because, as it is, they are pushed 
and buffetted by a system which acknowledges their neces- 
sity but ignores their needs. 

Our cadet corps is one important phase in our School 
life, and linked with it are any studies or activities pertain- 
ing to it, such as air cadet studies and competitions in our 
rifle range. Our drill provides a mental stimulus and pre- 
cision which takes expression only through discipline, and 
we learn one very important item — the leader cannot achieve 
anything without the support of the ranks, and as the ranks 
expect precise orders, so the leaders expect precise co- 
operation, and this typifies action in life. 

The student government we have is one of the greatest 
sources of self-expression we are given, but it needs a cer- 
tain amount of renovation, because the present system con- 
centrates too much responsibility on the Sixth former, who 
has not, or should not, have the time to spend on so many 
duties. The second and third years have little or no re- 
sponsibility, hence they either concentrate on school acti- 
vities or waste their time. It is right that the new boys bear 
a slight physical burden and constant checking — most of 
them have to be initiated into a life which they do not quite 
grasp, but the discipline should be extended to some degree 
into the second years, who often need it more than the new- 
boy. The third year should include some School duties — the 
Fifth former should be given responsibility. He should be 
taken into the ranks of leadership so that he knows what 
to do in his Sixth form year, and at the same time relieve 
some of the burden from the present Sixth. The boys taken 
into the ranks of leadership for the first time are at first 
confused, they do not know how to behave, they are not 


experienced enough to control their emotions to the benefit 
of others, they must be initiated into this position — respon- 
sibility must be spread out, in order to increase the benefits, 
and decrease the problems that are inevitable in any system. 

The world is one big community, and the School is one 
tiny community, and we are being prepared for life in the 
one while we live in the other. Here at School we learn to 
live by learning to live with our fellows. They are in close 
proximity to us, we can observe and try to understand their 
actions. We can recognize and acknowledge weaknesses, 
but at the same time discover their remedies while we 
appraise the multitude of good points we so often ignore. 
Our function in life is to achieve happiness, and as we try 
to achieve our function we learn not to infringe on the 
function of others, because that brings destruction to all 
our efforts as well as the efforts of those we trespass upon. 
We must learn to judge character-, understand emotions, 
acknowledge beliefs, tolerate differences, and respect the in- 
dividual. When we criticize, we must realize that although 
in our eyes the other person is not quite as good, he may 
feel the same way about us, and who knows who is right? 
We are all different. Life is variety, and without variety 
there is no life. But we must realize that in this School we 
are not a real cross-section of life — we still have many more 
different people to meet, and we can still learn much from 

Religion is our philosophy concerning life and its mean- 
ing — but it is infinitely deeper than a philosophy. By it we 
regulate our actions, our very thoughts. Because it is the 
meaning of our life, we must not push it aside to replace it 
with something more complacent — then life becomes an 
existence, and we are purposeless and devoid of everything 
that is good and fine. Religion is ah instinct in us, and we 
turn to it without material impetus — the very savages in 
Equitorial Africa have their cults; it must be instinct that 
dictates the presence of a higher Being among these most 
primitive peoples. The function of man is happiness, and 


he can attain happiness only in the spiritual, because nothing 
material can last to eternity, nothing material can replace 
God, and as we acknowledge Him, so we realize the in- 
significance of our status. We come upon happiness through 
these realizations, absurd as it may seem. Happiness can- 
not be defined — it is what we must search for in the fulfil- 
ment of our function. Our Chapel at School could take on 
so much more meaning to so many boys — not specifically 
through sermons, some of which are meaningless to boys, 
but on its quiet spiritual communion which should be the 
orbit of our lives. 

And so, with all these benefits within our grasp, the gift 
of our parents because it is most often a sacrifice on their 
part to enable us to come here, are we so dull that we can- 
not learn? \\Tiat more does our conceited self dictate that 
we ask for? 

— E.A.D. 



On Sunday, March 1, the guest preacher in the Memorial 
Chapel was Archdeacon Robertson. He took as his text the 
first verse of the Fourteenth Psalm, "The fool hath said 
in his heart: there is no God." 

The Archdeacon said that such a text is highly applicable 
to man today. He is the fool who denies himself God, and 
has forsaken and spurned Him in a world burdened with 
agnosticism, a world which needs God so badly. Man has 
forgotten that truth is his friend and love his brother and, 
as a result, his quest of God has abated. We cannot com- 
pletely understand God in all his aspects, yet this does not 
mean that we should sit back and let sin block our idea of 

Archdeacon Robertson went on to say that Christianity 
is something greater than man, and pointed out the unselfish 
way in which God sent his only Son to earth for our better- 


ment. Pantheism is not the only recognition of God's 
existence; we must worship Him both in spirit and in truth. 
Only a man with a strong spiritual faith and a recognition 
of Christ's teachings can face the problems of this unsettled 
world with any hope of success. 


Taking his text from St. Matthew, chapter 13, verses 
44-46, "Again, the Kingdom of God is like unto a treasure 
hid in a field, the which, when a man hath found, he hideth, 
and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and 
buyeth the field," the Reverend H. B. Snell preached the 
sermon on March 8. 

Christ said that the Kingdom of God is like unto the 
above text. Man suddenly discovers it, and is willing to give 
up everything for its sake. But what is the Kingdom of 
God? It is doing God's will in our own life, and to try to 
bring service, brotherhood and love into the lives of our- 
selves and others. God has made us in order that we might 
find happiness in His Kingdom which is within reach of us 
all. It is of infinitely more value than anything we may ever 
discover materially, for it is the only Kingdom that will 
last forever. "However," the Rev. Mr. Snell concluded, "this 
state can only be attained by supreme effort on the part of 


Canon Lawrence took the above quotation from the 
third verse of the second chapter of the first Book of Samuel 
as the text for his sermon on March 15. 

The Canon described the necessity for the great accuracy 
that exists in modern manufacturing processes, a tremendous 
change from the approximate units of weight and volume 
of olden days. Today, for example, weighing is mostly done 
by intricate machines which are periodically checked by in- 


spectors, whereas the Danes who came to England in the 
eighth and ninth centuries used a primitive form of the out- 
dated steelyard. 

To further develop his text, the Canon told us to re- 
member how Hannah, the mother of the prophet Samuel, 
realized that God sees so deeply into the character of men 
that it is as though he weighed their deeds — "by him actions 
are weighed." Accordingly, we cannot in our judgment of 
character be satisfied simply by outward appearance — we 
may be sure the Judge of all the world is not misled by 


During the period from March 16 to 20, a figure clad 
in a brown habit walking the School grounds became a 
familiar sight to students. This figure was Father Charles 
of the Society of St. Francis of Assisi with headquarters 
in London, England. Father Charles has been on a tour of 
various schools in Canada since March 5 and he has al- 
ready visited Ridley College, Bishop Strachan, St. Mildred's 
and the University of Toronto. After his stay at T.C.S., he 
travelled to the training school at Bowmanville from where 
he will continue on to Regina and Vancouver. He is staying 
in North America until he sails from New York on July 4. 

Father Charles is the epitome of sincerity and honesty. 
In the few days he was here he became a well-known per- 
sonality. He spoke twice during evening Chapel as well as 
taking the service. He spoke to various forms during class 
hours, and after Chapel each evening he conducted discus- 
sion groups in which boys were encouraged to ask questions 
about religion. 

In his first talk he outlined some of the work that the 
Society of St. Francis has undertaken. The Society was 
founded, as the name implies, by St. Francis of Assisi; the 
principal work was the curing of lepers. To-day in England 
the Friars run a school for maladjusted boys in Dorset, a 


house in the London suburbs for coloured sailors and many 
other very worthwhile projects. 

Father Charles' message to Canada is this : he has made 
the discovery that Jesus Christ is real and that we can get 
in touch with Him. In his second talk he spoke on security 
which he stated was really the essence of selfishness; we 
want only to be secure in the world. He went on to say 
that sharing was the most important thing we can do — not 
only sharing with one another, but also with God. He then 
outlined several methods of drawing nearer to God. The 
first is through prayer; the world is in its tormented state 
to-day because of the lack of prayer. The second method 
is through reading the Bible. The third is through the Holy 
Communion; the receiving of the Holy Sacrament helps one 
to fight both personal and world-wide social evils. 

Father Charles' visit will long be remembered at T.C.S. 


Pilate said unto them, "What shall I do then with Jesus 
which is called Christ?" They all say unto him, "Let him 
be crucified." With this verse from the 27th chapter of 
the Gospel according to St. Matthew, as his text, the Rev. 
George Roe preached the sermon on March 22. 

The Rev. Mr. Roe told us of Pontius Pilate's one chance 
to redeem himself for all his past sins in that brief moment 
of decision mentioned in the text. However, when the Jews 
said, "If thou let this man go thou are not Caesar's friend," 
Pontius Pilate, always an opportunist, saw a way to still 
the waters of dissention between the Jews and himself. So, 
even though he found no fault in Jesus, he allowed him to 
be crucified. 

In conclusion, the speaker warned us against shirking 
our responsibilities as did Pontius Pilate who did not have 
the moral strength to do what he thought right. We must 
always keep in mind Pilate's great mistake, and make sure 
that we do not forsake Christ for worldly gain. 



The principal service of the Lent Term was the annual 
Confirmation service, held on March 28. This year we had 
the honour of having the Right Reverend A. R. Beverley, 
M.A., D.D., Lord Bishop of Toronto, at our service to eon- 
firm the twenty-seven boys from the Senior and Junior 

For his sermon the Lord Bishop took his text from 
the 15th verse of the 24th chapter of the Book of Joshua, 
"Choose you this day whom ye will serve." He said that all 
these boys were now making a great choice, and he told 
them to remember the question asked of the Lord, "Lord, 
what wilt thou have me do?" The answer that he gave, "I 
go to prepare a place for you," gives meaning to life, for 
life would lack meaning if there were not another world 
beyond our own. The Lord Bishop concluded by saying 
that we must take the purists of the past as examples of 
the necessity of striving for a pure heart. 

Mr. Cohu deserves a great deal of praise for the beau- 
tiful way in which the Choir, under his direction, sang the 
anthem "Surely the Lord is in this House" and the Vesper. 
We feel sure that all the parents who attended the service 
were greatly impressed by the Right Rev, A. R. Beverley's 
very fine sermon, and that they left bearing a feeling of 
pride at having their son confirmed in the T.C.S. Memorial 

Those boys confirmed were: T. J. A. Allen, R. A. Arm- 
strong, J. A. Board, J. P. Borden, P. R. Bougner, H. B. 
Bowen, A. MacL. Campbell, D. E. Cape, T. R. Carsley, 
J. MacK. Cundill, T. R. Derry, M. J. G. C. Darvie, D. A. 
Drummond, T. D. Higgins, J. T. Kennish, P. F. Lazier, 
D. C. Marett, A. McR. Minard, S. A. H. Saunders, J. G. 
Scott, P. H. Scowen, H. B. Snell, E. S. Stephenson, M. W.

"Dying and behold we live." This was the text taken 
by the Chaplain in his first sermon of the Trinity term on 
April 19. 

To illustrate his text Canon Lawrence took that rare 
bird of legend, the Phoenix. A bird of great beauty, the 
Christians adopted the Phoenix as a symbol of their faith 
and, as a result, images of it are frequently found in ancient 
places of Christian worship. 

The Canon went on to say that people of the early 
Christian era believed that on the appearance of a certain 
star the Phoenix would build himself a nest, set fire to it 
by fanning his wings, and arise reborn to live until the 
next appearance of the star. 

Every generation has experienced some trial which can 
be compared to the flames from the nest. In recent years 
many people have come through ordeals neither defeated 
nor consumed, but with characters strengthened and re- 
newed. This is the reason that early Christians adopted 
the Phoenix as a symbol during the strife and ordeals ex- 
perienced under the Romans. They then derived courage 
from St. Paul's words, "Dying and behold we live." 

M.B.E., CD. 

The Reverend Lt.-Col. J. W. Forth preached to us in 
the Memorial Chapel on April 26. He chose his text from 
the 17th verse of the Book of Obadiah, "The House of Jacob 
shall possess their possessions." 

Col. Forth pointed out that although we own some- 
thing we do not possess it in the true sense of the word. 
He used the Bible as a classic example. A large number 
of us own a Bible but never read it, when in reality this 
book is the most precious the world affords. 

He went on to say how we are in the habit of treating 
our religion as we do our Bibles. We have come to take 


religion as a ritual and our hollow prayers reverberate from 
hollow skies. Until we make a concentrated effort to possess 
God in our hearts we will not have spiritual happiness. 

In conclusion, Col. Forth told us how patriots in war 
often discover what it is to need God and find Him on the 
battlefield through prayer. Similarly, we, as Christian 
soldiers, must strive to find and know God. 


The Choir has been most active in the Lent and Summer 
terms, preparing and singing moi"e special music than usual 

"God So Loved the World" from Stainer's 'The Cruci- 
fixion," and "Surely the Lord Is in This Place" by Burnell, 
were particularly well presented, the last named being sung 
at the Confirmation Service in March most impressively as 
well as the introit, "I Lift My Heart to Thee" and Walford- 
Davies' "God Be In My Head". 

A choral Communion Service (Martin Shaw) was held 
on Sunday morning, March 29, at which the newly confirmed 
candidates received their first communion. 

A memorial Evensong was held following the death of 
Queen Mary. At this service the anthem, "The Souls of the 
Righteous Are in the Hand of God" (Elyey), was quite 
beautifully sung. 

Founders' Day. commemorating the eighty-eighth Birth- 
day of the School, was observed by shortened Matins, the 
Choir being vested. 

Anthems now being prepared for future use this term 
are Martin Shaw's "O Brother Man", "Prevent Us, O Lord'' 
(Brewer), Jacob's "The Lord's My Shepherd", familiarly 
known as Brother Jacob's air, and "O Come Ye Servants 
of the Lord" by Godfrey Sampson. 

The Rev. R. E. G. Dennys, B.A., of Toronto, a visitor 
in Chapel one Sunday evening, was so impressed with the 
singing by the Choir that he suggested recording some of 
their music. This was done the following day in the Chapel. 


The anthems selected were two previously sung with success 
by the Choir. Unfortunately, it was discovered later that 
both compositions overstepped the three-minute time allow- 
ance for one side of a 10-inch record, the cost of a 12-inch 
record being considered excessive. Mr. Dennys kindly visited 
us again and made further recordings. It is feared that the 
repeat performance at a quicker tempo will not prove quite 
so satisfactory as the original performance. The records 
are now being made by a Toronto firm. 

Mr. Cohu is to be congratulated on his excellent work, 
and the boys have enoyed his supervision which combines 
pleasure with accomplishment.

The School was very excited at the end of February to 
see a beautiful new 1953 Buick being driven by the Head- 
master. Then he told us the tale of it. It had arrived at 
the Lodge for the use of the Headmaster and his 1949 
Chevrolet was taken in exchange. A pretty good exchange! 
So far it has been impossible to discover the name or names 
of the kind donor (s) ; they remain hidden under a cloak 
of anonymity. 


But it is said the Buick takes hours off trips and adds 
years to driver life by its riding qualities. 


With the opening" of the new Memorial Chapel and the 
vacating of the old Chapel below the Dining Hall, it has 
been possible to lay definite plans for a long-contemplated 
project — the conversion of this space into a new and more 
spacious Library. This move would also give the School 
another much-needed classroom. 

The old Chapel is to be divided into three separate 
sections. First, immediately within the entrance doors, 
there is to be a general Reading Room, 28 ft. x 28 ft., where 
magazines and newspapers may be read and which would 
serve as a reception room for visiting teams. Beyond this 
room and separated from it by a wall and swing doors, will 
be the Library proper, measuring 40 ft. x 28 ft., and so 
arranged in bays with bookcases emerging at right angles 
from the walls as to give room for as many as 30 boys to 
study or read in comfort. Of the six bays so formed one, 
on the north wall, will be built in as a Stack Room and 
Librarian's office. 

Beyond the Library, and occupying the site of the old 
choir stalls, will be an anteroom, 12 ft. x 28 ft., suitable 
for small meetings, play readings, etc. The ex-Chancel is 
to be converted into the Headmaster's office. 

The present Library, thanks largely to the generosity 
of Old Boys and friends of the School, has been expanding 
gradually in the last years until now, with some 5,500 books 
on the shelves, it has become difficult to add further to our 
shelf space. The new Library will increase our capacity to 
about 7,000 volumes. 

Every effort has been made over the last few years 
to make the Library an attractive and profitable focus for 
the boys' out-of-class time; the steady increase, not only 
in the amount of reading done but also in the general use 


of the Library, has been most rewarding. A great many- 
reference books have been donated recently, including a 
new Britannica, Oxford Junior and Columbia encyclopaediae 
— among the most valuable type of book for a School Library. 

It is planned to begin work on the new project during 
the summer. 

Mr. John Dening is in charge of the Library and Mrs. 
Dening is his most able assistant. 


The Senior School is experimenting with a new time 
table for classes. Forty minute periods have been increased 
to one hour, making four classes in the morning instead of 
six. Two come before break, and two after. 

For two years we have been experimenting with eighty 
minute periods in the Second Form and fewer subjects, 
English and Latin for four weeks, French and Maths for 
four; supplementary reading was continual. To the surprise 
of many, these eighty minute periods did not prove too 
long; even sceptical masters declared them to be a success. 

The idea behind the move was to give more time for 
directing the work of the students; masters had an oppor- 
tunity to recapitulate previous work, teach new topics, 
supervise desk woi'k, and then introduce new subject mat- 
ter. By reducing the number of subjects per day the pupil 
would, it was hoped, be less confused. 

For various reasons it was felt best to make the 
periods one hour in length for the whole Senior School, and 
the plan is functioning well at the moment; both masters 
and boys have declared themselves to be completely in favour 
of it. 

One immediate advantage is that nearly an hour a week, 
formerly wasted by classes changing from room to room 
six times in the morning, is now saved for teaching. 

We have never heard of any other school adopting 
either of these plans; if the present scheme proves sue- 


cessful it may be a contribution to better secondary school 


On February 26, the School had the great pleasure of 
seeing an exceedingly good movie on Brazil made for the 
Brazilian Traction Company by the Crawley Film Studios 
of Ottawa. The technicolor film was brought to us by Mr. 
Glasgow of the Toronto office. Prior to the showing, he 
explained how Brazilian Traction is using the investments 
of Canadian interests in fulfilling the tremendous demand 
for hydro-electric power in the fast-growing country of 
Brazil. The movie excelled in its photography of the Brazilian 
scenery and natural life while giving us a colourful and 
interesting picture of the Brazilian people, their occupa- 
tions, their modern cities, their music and their sports. 

We are indeed indebted to Mr. Glasgow and the Brazilian 
Traction Company for such a fine Canadian film. 


On March 3, a banquet was held in Hall for those boys 
who through their extra-curricular activities and duties, 
had helped better the School as a whole. Those invited 
included the members of the Choir, the First Hockey Team, 
the Prefects, House Prefects, and House Officers, the Editors 
of The Record, and many others. 

After a delicious chicken dinner, the Headmaster pro- 
posed a toast to the Hockey Team for their success and 
great sportsmanship displayed while at Princeton. He then 
proposed another toast, this time to the boys present who 
had done so much for the School. John Gordon, the Head 
Prefect, then proposed a toast to the Headmaster and Mrs. 
Ketchum, wishing them much success on their trip to 
France. The banquet ended with the boys gathering around 
the piano for a sing-song. 


All those boys who attended at the banquet agreed 
that it was a great success, and wish to thank Mrs. Wilkin 
and her staff for all their trouble. 


The School had the unique privilege of seeing on 
March 5 an extremely good film concerning the Missionary 
Society of Canadian Churches. The boys present were 
amazed by all the fine work that this little known Society 
is doing, not only in Canada, but also in the tormented 
Orient. The missionaiies are bringing God to the Eskimos 
in the Arctic area, to the Blackfoot Indian tribe of Alberta, 
and to the people living in isolated communities of the 
Rockies. In the huge Arctic area, the missionary can often 
only visit some of his parishioners annually and his visit 
is always looked forward to by the Eskimos. We were shown 
also the ti-emendous task that has been undertaken in Japan 
where the millions of people cramped on that island need 
the knowledge of Jesus Christ so badly. 

We were very fortunate in obtaining this truly stirring 
movie and we thank sincerely the Missionary Society of 
Canadian Churches for making it available to us. 


On the evening of Friday, March 20, Wilson MacDonald, 
one of Canada's best known and best liked poets, paid his 
fifth visit to T.C.S. He read many of his poems, some 
humorous, some serious, and a few written in the French- 
Canadian dialect such as, "M'sieu" and "The Stop 'em 
Short." He selected and read some of his "Crow" poems 
which are satires on man and manners, the most amusing 
of which was the "Political Crow." With the aid of a piano 
and four members of the choir, Mr. MacDonald chanted 
part of one of his religious compositions based on the first 


chapter of the Book of Genesis. This was extremely well 
done, considering the little practice the choir boys had had. 
It was a very enjoyable evening and we are sure that 
many boys now realize how delightful poetry can be. We 
all sincerely hope that Wilson MacDonald will visit us again 
in the not-too-distant future. 


On April 25, the School was given a chance to see two 
technicolour films entitled "Zoo Without Bars" and "Age- 
less Britain," both made almost entirely by Mr. Owen Jones 
and Mr. Frazer Fairley. 

The former movie was filmed in South Africa's two 
immense game reserves. Through the use of the telephoto 
lens we were treated to close-ups of a great variety of 
animals, ranging from antelopes and zebras to rhinoceros 
and elephants. 

The second film "Ageless Britain" led us on a journey 
through the past by touring the most famous edifices built 
in each era of English history. The scenes of Piccadilly 
Circus and Battersea Amusement Parks at night were 
especially colourful. 

Throughout both the films, the photography was very 
good. The fact that the C.B.C. has used parts of "Ageless 
Britain" on its television programmes is proof alone of their 
high calibre. We are all very grateful to Mr. Jones and 
Mr. Fairley for showing their films and are looking forward 
to the time they will show us their movie on T.C.S. which 
they are currently making. 


On March 30, the fifth and sixth forms had the privilege 
of having an informal discussion with Professor B. Mora- 
wetz, lecturer on Philosophy, at the University of Toronto. 
We endeavoured to discover Man's function in life, and many 
different theories were suggested. After an hour of interest- 


iiig and thoughtful discussion, we agreed that Man's func- 
tion in life is to achieve true happiness for himself and 

However, before we had a chance to argue about the 
meaning of "true happiness," Professor Morawetz had to 
return to Toronto, leaving behind him an air of concentrated 


Everyone who attended the School Dance this year 
seems to agree that it was one of the best that we have ever 
had. After a pleasant chapel service, the dance started, at 
nine o'clock. Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Lewis were in the reception 
line in the absence of Mr. and Mrs. Ketchum. As corsages 
were not in order, small bouquets of flowers were given out 
at the door. The decorations and lighting caught the atten- 
tion of all, the theme being that of a southern plantation. 
Much credit should be given to all those who helped in this 
way, especially the Art Group who put so much time into 
their paintings. The band from Peterborough provided the 
music again this year, and, as last year, it proved to be first 
class — however, everybody missed the annual performance 
of the Headmaster on the drums. 

A break occurred at eleven o'clock for supper, and the 
dance commenced again about eleven-thirty. The cocoa- 
room was attractively decorated and tables were set up 
where soft drinks and School pins were sold. Along with the 
cocoa-room, the two common-rooms were used as sitting- 
out rooms. 

The next day a light breakfast was served late at the 
Junior School and the bus carrying the girls returned to 
Toronto in mid-afternoon. 

All in all the dance was a great success, and most of 
the credit should go to Miss Wilkin, Mrs. Wilkin, Mrs. 
Stevenson, the dance committee, and the kitchen staff who 
all shared in making the 1953 dance the social function that 
it was. 



On Sunday, May 3, the Cadet Corps paraded to St. 
Mark's Church for its annual Church Parade. The Rev. C. H. 
Boulden, M.B.E., conducted the service, assisted by the 
School Chaplain, Canon C. G. Lawrence. Mr. Boulden preach- 
ed the sermon taking as his text the fifth verse of the 14th 
chapter of the Gospel according to St. John, "I am the way, 
the truth, and the life." 

After the service the Cadet Corps marched through the 
town before returning to the School. The high standard of 
inarching exhibited during this parade seemed to assure 
success on Inspection Day.

The Trinity College School Dramatic Society staged 
its annual Easter play on March 26. Under the direction of 
Mr. Angus Scott, the School presented "See How They Run," 
a light comedy by Philip King. 

The story takes place at the Vicarage, Merton-cum- 
Middlewick, in 1943. Corporal Clive Winton unexpectedly 
drops in to see his former acting partner, Penelope Toop, 
now the wife of the Rev. Lionel Toop. They go to see "Pri- 
vate Lives," which is unfortunately in the prohibited area 


for army personnel. In order to go, Corporal Winton ex- 
changes his uniform for a clerical collar and assumes the 
lole of the Rev. Mr. Humphrey who is expected the next 
day to take the service for Mr. Toop. Meanwhile, Rev. Toop 
returns home and is knocked out by an escaped German 
prisoner (A. A. van Straubenzee), who dons his clothes. Rev. 
Humphrey and Mrs. Toop's uncle, the Bishop of Lax, sud- 
denly arrive a day early. The rest of the play is a series 
of humorous incidents which is climaxed by the capture of 
the German prisoner by Sergeant Towers (R. M. L. Heenan) . 

John Cumberland as Mrs. Toop and Hugh Molson as 
Corporal Winton starred in the leading roles. Both had long, 
difficult parts, but succeeded in playing them quite naturally. 
Jerry Hulse, playing the part of Miss Skillon, the village 
gossip, gave a very amusing performance. The three 
ministers, the Bishop of Lax (J. C. Bonnycastle), Rev. Toop 
(C. N. Thornton) and Rev. Humphrey (P. W. A. Davison) 
created a realistic clerical atmosphere. Perhaps some day 
they will play these roles in real life. We should not for- 
get to mention D. D. Ross as Ida, whose sparkling little 
comments added their share to the play's humour. 

''See How They Run" lived up to past predictions, and 
it is due to hard work by the members of the Dramatic 
Society and the able direction of Mr. Angus Scott that the 
play was such a success. This is the first year that Mr. 
Scott has undertaken the direction of the Easter play, and 
with his very auspicious start, next year's play should be 
an even greater success.

O r 6 AT t s 

T.C.S. vs. u.c.c. 

On Friday, February 27, the T.C.S. debating team 
travelled to Toronto to take part in a debate with Upper 
Canada College. Representing the School were C. N. Thorn- 
ton, H. L. Ross, and C. R. Bateman. The resolution was 
"Resolved that two years' compulsory military training be 
instituted in Canada for all males." 

Thornton, the first speaker for the Government, gave 
numerous illustrations of Canada's need for passing such 
a bill. Ewell of U.C.C, the first speaker for the Opposition, 
discussed how a mean's education would be severely inter- 
rupted by two years' compulsory military training. Ross of 
the Government dealt with the advantages which would be 
gained by Canada as a whole. Martin, of U.C.C, discussed 
how such a plan would split the country in two, owing to 
the objections of the French Canadians. Bateman, the final 
speaker for the Government, described the benefits gained 
by the draftee himself. Roberts rounded off the Opposition's 
arguments in an excellent manner by rebutting many of the 
Government's weaker points. 

After careful deliberation, the judges, Mr. and Mrs. 
Tait, declared that the motion had been defeated by a small 

T.C.S. vs. II.T.S. 

For the last of this year's interschool debates, the T.C.S. 
debating team travelled to U.T.S., where it kept alive the 
friendly rivalry that has existed between the two schools 
during the past few years. The resolution before the House 


was "Resolved that a system of State Medicine should be 
instituted on this continent." 

The Government, represented by Jackson, Board, and 
Cran of T.C.S., presented their argument with good deUvery 
and poise which proved influential in winning the support 
of the House. The Opposition, consisting of Mainprize, 
Campbell, and Brewin, presented a more detailed and better 
arranged case in opposing state medicine. 

The Judges, when they returned, declared the resolution 
defeated by the Opposition from U.T.S. They made it clear, 
however, that the debate had been a difficult one to judge 
and that they had had to rely on the number of points 
brought up rather than on the delivery and poise. 



(Strictly for the birds) 

At the zoo the other day, I found that the management 
had built the bird house right next to the monkey pit, the 
two being separated by a short cloister. I smiled to myself, 
thinking that a similar situation had existed almost in 
duplicate at my old school. I was most absorbed by the 
bird house. There were many kinds there, all fine speci- 
mens, every one a veritable bird of paradise, beautifully 
coloured and perfectly formed. There were some from Ber- 
muda, a couple from Mexico, in fact, here was a truly cos- 
mopolitan group. The peculiar thing was, though, there was 
one rather angular bird, watching all the others through a 
pair of minute binoculars. Again I smiled. My reverie was 
interrupted by a very ill-mannered noise proceeding from 
the other house. Upon investigation, it turned out to be a 


number of monkeys fighting wildly over something that was 
vaguely reminiscent of a Brent House tie. There was an- 
other getting his head punched, and yet another crouching 
en a rock shelf idly clanking a cow-bell. I turned my atten- 
tion again to the bird house. There was one with very deep- 
set eyes. Upon inquiry, I learnt that this particular variety 
has lots of brains — extraordinary! There was another en- 
gaged in fantastic acrobatics around its perch. A third very 
English-looking type was dabbling around in caviar. 

Just then a keeper drove up in a bottle green coupe, in 
which were several racks of bird seed. 

"Come on, you birds!" he commanded in muffled tones. 
It was feeding time. There was one small bird there who 
did not seem to be very happy. It was called something like 
a rockbird — or birdrock. Out of pity it was sent back home 
to his kin, in monkey-land. 

Again I heard squalling and squabbling in the monkey 
house. Apparently a number of them were playing soldiers 
and there seemed to be too many officers. 

I finally had to leave the zoo. You can't stay there for- 
ever, even though some people seem to be able to. I wished 
the monkeys all the best of everything, but they apparently 
had it already. As I departed I was cheered by the songs 
of the birds in their house. There were mixed kee-kees and 
too-toos, very brassy, almost trumpet-like, but somehow it 
reminded me of my old school, T.C.S. The last thing I heard 
were the monkeys again. How they complained! 


County MACKINNON in SCOTTland is well known for 
its EARY beauty, so our hero, GULLIBLE, a stone-MASON, 
packed his KIT and reached there LASS'night. When DAY 
broke he felt POOed, (he was not KEEPing FIT), so he 
called BETSY, the waitress, who looked tres CHICK this 
morning, and asked her to SKIP down and get him some 
MEAT with CRANberry sauce. The waitress said "HUMPH" 
and looked BOARD. "If you cleaned your dirty BLACK 
glasses, you would SEYMOUR." He looked POLAKxed and 


exclaimed, "E GGHEAD! I had thought everything would 
be JAKE but I was wrong." HOWE she LAFFed at this. 
He was so disgusted he cried "AW HUGHIE" and said that 
as soon as he had DOUG up enough money he would leave 
for SIDNEY. 

(Ed. Note: we BISH we could have worked in J. C. 

"MATHER children look like HEIFERS," he cried, 
putting on his SAGgy CAPE. But too many HATGS and 
SEAGRAMS had made him rather MERRY, so he had some 
MAXWELL house coffee and turned on a BOUGIE record. 
"Give me the HYLANDs where they make the oil DEREKS 
and WOOD for the GURNEY stoves," he bellowed. Then 
a MOLE crawled over the YOUNG man's BEAK and sug- 
gested a reasonably PRICED BERTH for the night. "I only 
sleep in CASSELS or flour-MILLS," he answered. But a 
COAL MAN appeared who turned out to be RICHARD'S 
SON, one of our hero's ELDER KIN. They decided the 
beds were to SKINNY and full of spIKEs and LEECHes, 
so they paid their DIRTY BILL and left. They walked a 
LONG way with a COAL-BURNer having nothing but PORK 
CHOPS, MAY BERRIES and MARTlNis until they came 
to a SANDY spot something like DAVY Jones' Locker. 
"LE'S LIE here," said our hero, but a HARRISed DOCtor 
was there named GARTH. "WAIT," he said, "There's a 
female GrIFFEN around here; be prepared with ARMS 
STRONG and a cluB (OAK preferably) to SWAT her down. 
Then BEAT, TIE and CARY'ER off, but don't jOSL 'ER, 
for she is a FAIR BAIRNE not deserving of the BLACK 
WELL. "FRANKly," said our hero, "I feel hke a sausage 
MAChine." "ROGER," agreed the elder, "I feel like a LUX 
soap flake or maybe PROCTOR and Gamble's FLAIKIE 
Rinso." So they found a WILLOUGH BY a shaded NEL 
and LASHed some twigs together with KETCHUP for a 

As far as we know they haven't BUDGEd yet, and are 
still all BLAKEd up with DINKy toys waiting for next 
year's Brent House Notes to CUM BY. 




Again the time has come for another issue of the 
notorious gossip column. 

As many of you know there was a dance not too long 
ago. Those who were here no doubt saw many INTEREST- 
ING things. It sounded like a FIRE HALL, but I guess 
that was due to the SIREN that turned up. It is rumoured 
that MEAT and POO had a good time but alas for JONES. 
The wall of rocks or WALLY MOB was well represented 
by WALLY himself and of course LAKIE. 

Ever since the Kentucky Derby was run BAGGY the 
BOOKIE and COON Molson have been ever so quiet. COON, 
due to the lack of sun up here, is again looking like one of 
us. LUCKY boy! 

Due to somebody feeling rather mean, BULLET and 
LITTLE BLUT were seen coming out of tuck not so long 
ago with a rather RAGGED apparel. 

Has anyone seen CETO'S new ROW BOATS. We pity 
the unfortunate who has to POLE them down to the base- 
ment. In their respective SEARSUCKED jackets SKIN- 
HEAD and JAMIE are competing for HEAD WAITER these 
days. It m,ust be a LOLLY POP! 

The thing to do these days is to play GOLF (?) on the 
campus. The person who takes out the largest piece of sod 
wins. There we find 'PYA, GRUELAND, and of course 
LOUIE out in front. 

Due to the family meeting in the GYM last term we 
now have ROLPHIE MAGOOK standing very ERECT these 
days but there were no HARD feelings. While on the bottom 
flat we were sorry to see SAFETY FIRST West leave us for 
a few days and sympathize with BLUSTERCASTLE in his 
trouble getting the slate typed. 





Thomas H. Raddall 

The author, Thomas H. Raddall, born in England, came 
to Nova Scotia as a child and grew up as a lover of the sea 
and of the land he lived in. Urged on by such writers as 
John Buchan and Kenneth Roberts, Raddall began to write 
novels of Nova Scotia and the sea. Pride's Fancy, one of 
his recent novels, is an exciting adventure of the sea mixed 
with descriptive atmosphere of old Nova Scotia, and of a 
love story which is set against the beautiful background of 
the Caribbean. Although the plot is not a deep one, it never- 
theless holds the reader's interest to the last page. The 
story itself is of a bold captain, Nathan Cain, who is destined 
to inherit the fortune of his stepfather, Amos Pride, a 
wealthy shipping merchant of Nova Scotia. Captain of one 
of these merchant ships supplied with guns to fight off 
French or Spanish raiders, Cain takes the reader along with 
him in search of a treasure hidden in Hispaniola, one of the 
islands in the Caribbean. This voyage, exciting and adven- 
turous as it is, is also romantic, as Cain, ruthless as he was, 
fell in love with a girl from Hispaniola, Raddall's use of 
colloquial English, along with his descriptive scenes mixed 
with the tumult of the old buccaneer days, supplies the 
reader with all the essentials of a good, interesting novel. 

—J. D. Seagram, VBU. 



My love is as hig:h as the brightest sky, 
And deep as the darkest sea, 
Wherever I sail, or wherever I fly 
The love of my life follows me. 

She haunts me in my wildest dream, 
Comes to me every night; 
She follows the path of a silvery stream 
With a sad eternal life. 

Throughout my work and throughout my play, 
And wherever I may abide, 
My grieving heart begs my soul to pray, 
And I long for her by my side. 

I know I am doomed to a horrible fate, 
Tormenting me every day. 
Yet still I hope, and long, and wait 
For my love who is far away. 

— J. Cumberland, VA. 


He removed the pipe from his mouth, and pointed it 
vaguely at one of the window-baskets that were hung at 
regular intervals around the club verandah. 

"Those things? Good heavens, no!" The pipe was re- 
placed in his mouth, only to be removed once more as he 
added with kindly assurance — "natives see to that." 

No doubt sensing my obvious desire for statistics on 
so interesting a subject, he was good enough to inform, me 
that one found coral snakes in the window-baskets as often 
as one found scorpions in the sink of the butler's pantry, 
which was, as I was reluctant to accept, seemingly never. 

I had arrived in Trinidad a short time beforehand, 
determined to take a previous acquaintance up on a generous 
offer of hospitality and accordingly had broken my journey 
south at Piarco. We were seated in one of those clubs with 


which British colonies seem to abound. Curious and im- 
patient to learn of all the horrors of a tropic life in one 
cataclysmic revelation, I had cheerfully supposed that coral 
snakes were often found in the window-baskets. My host's 
reply did not discourage me, though I was forced to turn 
to my daiquiri, appalled at the civilization existent on the 

"Extraordinary thing happened the other day," my 
friend began, "surfing at Manzanilla. Do you know that a 
couple of sharks actually attempted to catch us ? They don't 
know their own place . . ." 

Startled by the misplaced grim life-and-death drama 
he was relating, I looked up and was singularly pleased to 
see a small red and black striped head motionless among the 
ferns in the window-basket 

"Ah ha!" I interrupted, "I see that you do have a coral 
snake in one of our window-baskets." 

The demoniac head disappeared. 

"Really — are you sure you saw one?" He jabbed at 
the ferns with his pipe, but they were out of reach. 

"Hand me those matches, will you — splendid!" He lit 
the pipe. 

"We'll have to get the barman to see about that." 

The barman acknowledged the suspected presence of 
the snake with a funereal grin, and hastily offered to re- 
plenish our glasses. We acquiesced, and settling back I ven- 
tured to inquire about the local driving regulations — I have 
a penchant for collecting driving licenses. 

"Boy!" a bassoon-like discord trumpeted out, together 
with an authoritative double-clap of the hands. 

The garden-boy came up, wearing a calabash on his 
head as a form of crude precaution against the sun. He was 
delighted at this sudden attention paid him by one of the 
sahibs who normally sat barely visible in the verandah, 
fading by the hour even as daVinci's "Last Supper" has 
faded by the year. 

The situation was explained with tedious simplicity, and 
the boy searched around him for a weapon. Personally, I 


was in favour of charming the creature with something like 
"The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy", but the club gramo- 
phone was broken (the common failing of its kind). Mean- 
while the garden-boy had lighted upon the soda-water 
syphon, and no doubt having observed the intricacies of its 
operation at some former time, was preparing to engage 
the window-basket generally at close range. 

"Steady with ..." my companion's words were cut 
short by a furious hitting as the carbonated water angrily 
left its mother container. A stray burst caught the bowl 
of his pipe, and skewering it around on his protesting teeth, 
sprayed the live ashes over the tessellated floor, 

"You know, I was in charge of an artillery brigade at 
Loos, during the Great War," my partner began, methodi- 
cally re-filling his pipe as he talked. "Order came one day 
to try and get an Albatross that had been scouting over 
our lines. I telephoned Divisional H.Q. for information, and 
some orderly screamed — " 

"Dere he go, boss!" The spate of soda-water ceased, 
and rushing to the raihng I caught sight of a small striped 
form slipping away from the confusion of the quiet and 
proper club. 

The garden-boy was sent to inquire after the long- 
absent barman, and we resumed the orderly's conversation, 
which was once more interrupted by the return of our young 

"Well — what is it?" my friend queried, removing the 
pipe from his mouth. 

The truth will out; I will not hesitate to say that appar- 
ently one does find coral snakes in the window-baskets as 
often as one finds scorpions in the sink of the butler's 
pantry. The unfortunate fellow had fallen prone to fate's 
completion of the maxim, and was, we were told, at that 
very moment lying all too conscious in the more sublime 
realms of pain while the scorpion's poison throbbed on in 
its lethal advance through his veins . . . 

A dispirited man knocked his pipe out with a tragic 
gesture of finahty, and rising, placed the still warm briar 

in his pocket. — ^- J- a. Wilson, VIB. 



Once that frigate proud had hurled 
A challenge to the salt-tipped waves, 
And dipping, bowing, breaking, curled 
The blackly sparkling foam like caves. 
Had answered boldly thund'rous foes. 
And joined the fray with youthful glee, 
And flinging broadsides out for blows 
Sped onward, heedless, through the sea. 

The decks, bedewed with flowing blood, 
And stained with human pain; 
The pump-crew straining, stems the flood 
Which bursts through the holes of Cain, 
The cannon's roar and the sulph'rous reek 
Fill the wildly plunging wreck; 
And gun-boys, singing, shelter seek 
From the shot which scores the deck. 

Smoke leaps up, then hissing flame, 
To be doused by the sweating crew. 
Yards crashing down on the oaken frame 
Great gaps in the bulwarks chew. 
The rolling cannon their bastions groove 
And, buckling, break their bonds. 
But the antagonists asunder move 
Amid shouts, then threatening sounds. 

The clouds roll up, a menacing black, 

The sky is ablaze with fire; 

And spray pours over and cascades back 

Changing the carnage to mire. 

The tops'ls, torn, drone a dreadful dirge; 

And the hurricane strain to resist; 

The clouds close over, the ships submerge 

In a silent sea of mist. 


The captain paces, the splinters fly, 

Then the ship recoils from the shock; 

She runs aground, to the barnacle's cry. 

On a bottom of solid rock. 

The masts are down, and the hull stove in, 

The lifeboats lower away; 

The sailors sigh, and curse the sin 

Of such weather which can slay. 

Now the bare black wood alone, 

A sentinel resides. 

The skeletal hulk of dark charred bone 

Is battered by vengeful tides. 

No passing ships ever shed a glance 

On this fine frigate of old, 

And even sighting it by chance 

Never think of its battle bold. 

— J. R. deJ. Jackson, VIA. 


While I was at university, I was able to appreciate the 
marked difference between the people who associate them- 
selves with the literary world and those who are content 
with mathematics. For example, I will take the case of two 
men who were professors during my university career. One, 
Mr. Middleton, was an English professor, and the other, 
Mr. Sharp, taught higher mathematics. 

The difference between the two men was classic and 
could be seen in everything they did. One day I came across 
old Middleton ambling across the campus. His robes flowed 
easily behind him as he walked and there was an air of 
profound content and calm about the man. Presently from 
out of the laboratory block of the university came Professor 
Sharp. He trotted down the few broad steps onto the green 
and set off at a brisk, nervous pace toward the great hall. 
He soon overtook Middleton, who seemed to be in no great 
hurry to get anywhere. 


"Good morning', Sharp," said Professor Middleton as 
he passed. 

"Lovely day, isn't it?" 

Sharp replied with a curt nod and after a nervous 
glance at his wristwatch, quickened his pace and hurried on. 
leaving Middleton behind. The old chap was undisturbed 
and continued along his unhurried way, even stopping to 
examine a maple leaf which had fallen to the ground in the 
middle of its metamorphosis from green to red, for it was 
autumn and the trees were changing colour. 

Even at the dining table there was a very marked 
difference between the eating habits of the two men. Pro- 
fessor Sharp systematically unfolded his serviette, laid it 
across his right knee and then took pepper and salt, making 
a small pile of each side by side on the edge of his plate. 
Next he cut his meat into small concise portions, took a 
piece of bread and was thus ready to eat. In comparison to 
this, it was amusing to watch old Middleton. He tucked his 
napkin in up at his collar any old way that it would go. 
He tasted the course and if he thought that it needed 
flavour, he haphazardly passed the salt-shaker over it a 
few times. He cut up his meat as he needed it, cautiously 
working around the fat. 

The two men taught differently. Sharp was in a con- 
stant chronic state of worry and quandary lest he fail to 
finish a certain course in the prescribed time. As for Professor 
Middleton, he was untroubled by the falling of sand in the 
hourglass. He casually assured his students that they would 
get there and do you know this ? They inevitably got there, 
often with a good deal of time to spare. 

Poor old chap, I doubt if he even knew the hcence number 
on his ancient car or even cared for that matter. He lived 
in a world devoid of care and worry, completely oblivious 
of difficulty until it met him and then, somehow he always 
triumphed over it. Conversely, Professor Sharp was always 
worrying about to-morrow, foreseeing difficulties even as 
far as into next week. 


It ended as most stories have to. Pathetic little Pro- 
fessor Sharp suffered a mental collapse and was retired on 
a meagre pension. As far as I know, dear old Professor 
Middleton still lectures and remains unchanged as the years 
put more ivj^ on the limestone walls of the university build- 
ings. One thing has changed in the old chap. He now 
smokes Hunter's Horn tobacco instead of Old Oak.

The parachute and then the rubber raft. 

The thoughts of other men combined in me 

To save my life. Will they deliver me? 

What was to happen now will be fulfilled 

Despite our clumsy preservation means 

Designed to counteract the whim of fate. 

Fate watches Life and Death compete for men, 

And sometimes meets with Death across the chess. 

But other times competes with Life for us. 

We are but pawns and fate has never lost, 

For how can one who knows what is to be 

Succumb to those who only know the past? 

I pray to live and beg for life, I hope: 

And Hope, so many times denied fulfillment 

Struggles to its feet to become once more 

Dashed rudely on the surface of denial. 

Each sound I hear I think: Will I be saved? 

Has someone seen me or have I once more 

Been mocked by fate who plays this time with black, 

And swiftly moving forward to checkmate 

Adds yet another victory to his name? 

No — what I heard was neither ship nor plane, 

Again, once more I only heard the wind, 

Or was a pawn slid forward on its baize? 

Night comes. I wonder: Will I see the dawn? 

How many dreary hours will pass before 

I join the muted ranks of missing dead, 


And stare with sightless eyes and deathly grin 

Upon the sea, my monument, my grave. 

I sink into unconsciousness and time 

Slips by ushering in delirium. 

Nor did I know that as I lay inert, 

A hostile ship passed well within my shout, 

But a friendly plane blown away from course 

Perceived a tiny speck upon the sea 

And signalled for a boat to come for me. 

— R. P. A. Bingham, VIE. 


A fine spattering sound — driblets of water dribbled 
down the window. Gray skies loomed overhead, and cast 
a gloomy shadow into the high roof of the still chapel. The 
wind drove the raindrops against the glass in blisters, and 
beat the naked twisting limbs of the solitary tree I saw 
from where I sat. I looked at the altar — it was still — there 
were no flickering lights, there were no flowers, there was 
only a solitary cross flanked by the two unlit candlesticks. 

Outside, through the window, the heavy skies showed 
an unreal beauty, a wild emotional beauty, and as the wind 
spattered the raindrops and twisted the tree, and prodded 
the fleeing clouds, I was aware of a gripping joy. 

What made those murky, menacing skies so glorious? 
Was it a sadistic tendency to revel in their gloom? But 
was it gloom? Was it not the grip of the furious power 
buffetting those wild skies? Certainly it was a menacing 
power which whipped the wind and the trees, which paraded 
its might before humbled man — and yet that idiotic instinct 
was still there, to brave this might, to shout and laugh in 
impossible pride, to feel the thrill of an imagined victory 
when the wind dies down. 

But how then — man's instincts are childish! No notice 
has been taken of him — he has just imagined himself the 
focus of this turmoil, while actually he is only one tiny in- 


significant component among many in a scene beyond his 

Insignificant as he is, his very life is so composite that 
it also is beyond his comprehension. 

And so he lives, a proud, conceited, admirable creature 
who rules himself by passions. Loving and hating, recog- 
nizing the virtue in the one and the sin in the other, exam- 
ining his conscience and deciding: "I will amend my life 
forthwith," and then sinning all over again to repent again 
— that is his life. He clings to his life — he is ambitious, he 
wants to achieve. But what he so often does not recognize 
is that what he achieves must bring satisfaction to him, 
and since he is endowed with a mysterious conscience, only 
that which is right can- satisfy. 

In that way only can civilization be improved. But then 
men will no more fight together, will no more be selfish, but 
will live in loving comradeship. And the skies will clear, 
and the sun shine through, and then man might look up 
and say: "I have lost that thrill in opposing power — I have 
become dull and passionless," and civilization will die out, 

— E. A. Day, VIS. 


At last it is spring, and time for the businessman to 
become garden conscious once more. Each year he looks 
forward to having his garden, and each year he has the 
same drastic results. 

The "Businessman-gardener" will never change. Though 
completely out of place when gardening, he is quite at home 
when making excuses. Too much sun or too little rain are 
his most common ways of accounting for failures, but his 
wife and neighbours are often blamed for taking too little 
interest. However, if they once tamper with a single daf- 
fodil, "hubby" feels they have ruined everything. It is also 
rather surprising how often a poor garden is attributed to 
the poor quality bulbs, fertilizers and gardening tools the 
businessman has been forced to use. Then the sandy soil 


and sulky sprinklers must be considered together with the 
inconsiderate children who perpetually play hide-and-seek 
among the tulips. With all these excuses to choose from, 
the businessman has no trouble convincing his friends that 
fate, not lack of ability as a gardener, accounts for his flimsy 
flower bed. 

The truth of the matter is that the everyday business- 
man doesn't know a fox-glove from a forget-me-not and con- 
siders gardening a harmless hobby, not a diligent art. As a 
result, he continues to look forwarded to his annual garden, 
but never improves as a gardener. In short, businessmen 
should stick to business or at least spare us the details of 
their botanical bungling. 

— H. D. Molson, VB2. 


In a general sense any discovery is an invention ; in any 
case something must be invented with which to apply the 
discovery. We can imagine the man who first discovered a 
rigid metal — such as iron or copper. What use was this 
hard stuff? Maybe he tried to make some more, only this 
time the molten metal ran between two rocks, and like cast 
iron, expanded upon solidifying to take a sharp casting. 
Upon removing the rocks he cut himself — ah ! he could make 
a knife. Soon everyone had an iron knife. In battle a re- 
version to the old flint knife would be suicidal. Iron had 
become a necessity. 

We need not consider further the many diverse applica- 
tions of iron today or its development through the ages, for 
it is a story endlessly repeated in the history of man. Let 
us instead consider why an invention should become a neces- 
sity. We have already considered the example of warfare. 
Here there is a necessity for invention, for you may invent 
something today, use it tomorrow and find it is obsolete 
the next day. One country may feel protected with a new 


secret weapon, but when the enemy has it, it becomes a 
necessity for self-preservation. It is the natural human 
desire for prestige and power which turns these inventions 
into necessities. But even the obsolete creations of war 
become the property of the individual and take their part in 
the life of the nation. Thus clothing which has been out- 
moded in the armed services is still of use. Research in the 
forces advises the civilian what to wear in the tropics or 
in the arctic besides giving cloth manufacturers an oppor- 
tunity to develop new materials with which to satisfy 
popular demand — a demand which in time becomes a neces- 

Indeed, to satisfy the individual is the object at the 
heart of the problem, for it is another human characteristic 
which changes inventions into necessities. This is the 
pampered human being; for it is not only children who are 
spoiled. Which one of us would so much as consider ex- 
changing a Cadillac for a caleche or a Hillman for a horse? 
There is the answer — we are soft. This analogy of the car 
may not apply to all persons, but if any are excluded, some 
one of the innumerable modern contrivances may be found 
in his possession, the loss of which would be catastrophic. 
Another example of this common failing of humanity is 
found in medicine. With the large variety of medicines to- 
day, invalids, or people who think they are, tend to live 
on pills. This practice is ridiculed in motion pictures by a 
well-known comedian Jerry Lewis. Whether these medicines 
have really become a necessity or not, the drug stores are 
certainly flourishing. 

Though the danger of people tending to become pill-run 
machines is unlikely, there is one application of this theory 
to politics. One of the greatest problems of the Liberal and 
Conservative parties and an asset of all Labour parties is 
this — the Welfare State, which when you come to think 
of it, is a theoretical invention. The Anti-labour parties 
fear men will become so dependent on social services that 
they will lose votes ; but alongside these petty party rivalries 



looms the fact that a deficiency of ambition may develop, 
a most serious blow to a young country like Canada. 

Man will always be experimenting — searching for poli- 
tical systems or for space travel, for medicine or for war, 
for personal comforts or for destruction, for himself or for 
his fellow men; however, he must without fail build on the 
foundation of the past, and depend on the inventions and 
discoveries of those who have gone before.

Henri Lafleur is undoubtedly one of the best goalies 
that the School has ever had, and for his outstanding play 
on the First Team for the past two years he was awarded 
a Distinction Cap in hockey. Always calm, cool and collected, 
playing his best when the going was toughest, he amazed 
everybody by always being on his feet in the right place at 
the right time. For his agility, sportsmanship and ability 
we congratulate Henri on an award which he more than 

As number one player on the School squash team for 
the past two years Anthony Lafleur, in addition to doing a 
great job with the School team, of which he was captain, 
has done extremely well personally, and for his many 
achievements was awarded a well deserved Distinction Cap. 
He was runner up in the Toronto and District championship, 
winner of the T.C.S. Invitation Consolation Tournament, 
plus Ontario Junior champion and Canadian Junior finalist; 
Anthony will undoubtedly take his place at or near the top 
of the list of outstanding T.C.S. squash players. 

For the first time in a number of years the basketball 
team had a very good season winning seven out of their 
ten games. As captain, Kit Cowan was the leading member 
of the team. He played exceptionally well and showed great 


versatility. Kit, who coached the team himself, seemed to 
have found time to do an excellent job in coaching while 
attending to the other duties as captain and for this re- 
markable achievement he was awarded a Distinction Cap 
which was a fitting reward for his qualities of talent and 

Without a doubt Peter Phippen is a gymnast without 
compare in this part of the country, and as has been mention- 
ed before probably the outstanding school-boy gymnast in 
North America to-day. His patience in helping other boys 
on our gym teams, plus the hard work which he puts into 
mastering new exercises himself, have won for him the 
admiration of everyone. As captain of our gym team for 
the past two years he has accumulated a long list of achieve- 
ments that are familiar to all of us; Peter was awarded a 
Distinction Cap again this year, an award that could have 
been foreseen when he first started to walk on his hands 
at the age of six. 

We would also like to offer our congratulations and 
wish the best of luck to John Gordon and Tony Brewer, 
captain and vice-captain of the cricket team; behind then^ 
leadership the First XI should give a good account of them- 
selves in the Little Big Four games. 


T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, February 28. Tied 3-S. 

Good defensive play by the home team enabled T.C.S. 
to hold the visiting U.T.S. crew to a 3-3 tie. 

From the opening whistle the play was fast and furious 
with the T.C.S. goalie, Lafleur, making more than one 
sensational save to keep the determined Toronto boys off 
the score list. The first goal came at the five mmute mark 
when Naylor of U.T.S. beat Lafleur from close in. After 
this setback T.C.S. fought harder and were rewarded mmutes 


later as Church's shot, after being partially stopped, just 
crossed the line. 

The second period proved to be the slowest of the game 
but nevertheless two goals were accounted for. After foui^ 
minutes of see-saw play, Borthwick of the visitors put his 
team in front from a face off as he slapped the puck into 
the net. Johnson evened the count midway through the 
frame on a high corner shot after a dazzling rush up centre 
to close the second period scoring. Goalie Lafleur saved 
many certain goals by uncanny judgment. 

The third period was studded with penalties, seven in 
all, of which four went to T.C.S. A solo effort by U.T.S.'s 
Bertram put T.C.S. in a tight spot but applying tremendous 
power the home team tied the score. Donald performed 
the feat with team-mates Yale and dePencier earning assists. 
With only two minutes left to play the Port Hopers found 
themselves short two men on account of penalties, but the 
defence played brilliantly to ward off further U.T.S. attacks. 

At Newmarket, IVIarch 4. Lost 6-2. 

In the annual game with Pickering College the play was 
very rapid for the first two periods, then slowed down con- 
siderably in the third period. There seemed to be a great 
weakness in the School's defense, and they were unable to 
clear out of their own end which resulted in all of the Picker- 
ing goals. In the first period the first goal was scored by 
Alger of Pickering. 

In the second period the School had a very bad slump; 
they were mostly on the defensive and as a result made no 
scoring plays. Pickering's second goal came in the four 
minute mark with MacMillan getting the credit and Dolison 
assisting. Then ten minutes later Steward scored unassisted 
making the score three nothing at the end of the second 

In the opening of the third period it seemed that the 
School had regained their hockey ability, when they dis- 



played superior hockey passing and hard checking. dePencier 
scored the School's first goal on a breakaway from the blue- 
line with Yale getting the assist. A minute later Church 
scored with Mills getting the assist. Then the drive dwindled 
and the School were again on the defensive. Drew scored 
for Pickering and was closely followed by Greene who 
managed to score for Pickering by slipping the puck past 
goalie Ron McCaughey in a goalmouth scramble. In the 
last minute of play Steward's goal made the score 6-2 in 
Pickering's favour. 


At Port Hope, March 7. Lost 8-5 

In their annual game with the Sahara Desert, T.C.S. 
found themselves on the short end of an 8-5 count. 

The first period produced five goals of which the visitors 
countered three. Yale of the home team opened the scoring 
on a pass from Captain Mike dePencier but the Toronto boys 
equalized minutes later as Summerville beat Lafleur. Then 
went ahead on a goal by Kane, but everything was tied up 
again as dePencier executed a neat play to bring his team 
level. The winners scored the final goal of the period when 
Turnbull gave Lafleur no chance. 

The second frame opened fast with Giffen making the 
score 3-3. This didn't last long, however, as the S.D. regis- 
tered two quick goals. dePencier scored the T.C.S. goal in 
this stanza. 

The fraternity completely monopolized the third period 
play with three of the four goals. Their scorers were Kirk- 
ham with two and Stanley one, while the only T.C.S. counter 
came off Donald's stick. 

Best for the winners was Kirkham while the line of 
dePencier, Osier and Yale starred for the School. 



At Port Hope, March 11. Lost 5-1. 

In the return game with the Grove, a much improved 
and highly spirited Lakefield team defeated the School by 
a score of 5-1. 

The first period opened quickly, and after several at- 
tacks in the T.C.S. end, Ramsey took a pass from Uren to 
score on a well placed shot. Trinity fought back hard and 
Jim Brown finally tied it up on a nice solo effort. There 
were many close chances for both sides during the rest of 
the period, Lakefield finally capitalizing as Ryder scored 
to end the period. 

The second saw the play slow down considerably, with 
some excellent defensive work being displayed by both 
teams. Captain Whittamore made the score 3-1 for his team 
before the period ended, scoring on a blue line shot that 
gave goalie Lafleur no chance. 

The final period saw goals by Ohvar and Ryder in- 
crease the Grove total to five, while T.C.S. was unable to 
score. Our team seemed to lack organization and drive, and 
there were but a few moments of brilliance in the entire 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

At Aurora, March 14. Won 4-3. 

In their final game of the season Bigside came up with 
some excellent hockey, and edged out the Saints by a score 
of 4-2. The game was evenly contested throughout, and if 
it hadn't been for the excellent goaltending of Lafleur in 
the T.C.S. nets, the outcome could have been much different. 

The first period started out slowly, and it took several 
minutes for the teams to settle down to good hockey. Both 
teams missed several chances, and at the eight-minute mark 
Robertson of S.A.C. got a minor for hooking. T.C.S. pressed 
hard, but were unable to penetrate the Saints' defence. 

The second period opened fast, Robertson getting his 
second penalty for boarding, and a few seconds later- Burns 


of T.C.S. was penalised for hooking. Half way through the 
period Dave Osier opened the scoring, hitting the target 
on a rebound from Mike dePencier. One minute later Archie 
Church made the score 2-0 on a passing play from Donald 
and Johnson. 

Thirty-five seconds after the opening of the third 
period, Bob Arnold scored the third goal on a pass back 
to the blue line by Dave Osier. Still in the first minute of 
play, dePencier and Johnson got two quick penalties. 
S.A.C., striving desperately for their first win over T.C.S. 
on home ice in several years, were unable to score. The 
Saints finally scored at the five minute mark, Captain Cosby 
tallying on an assist by Shearson. A few minutes later, 
Wansbrough made the score 3-2. Finally, late in the period, 
Dave Osier got his second goal in a scramble in front of 
the S.A.C. nets, to end the scoring in a very fast, close game. 

* * * * * 

For the young team we had this year, the season on 
the whole can be considered a very successful one. Near the 
end, it is true, the team lapsed into a bit of a slump, but 
the final game at Aurora made up for some rather shaky 
hockey that preceded it. With eleven members of the team 
coming back next year, we should see a T.C.S. team that 
can take on all rivals. The School has been invited down 
to Princeton again next year, an honour which we have 
naturally accepted and an event to look forward to. 

MIDDLESIDE vs. U.T.S., at Port Hope, February 28. Lost 4-0. 

On February 28, Middleside lost a close-checking game 
to U.T.S. In the first period T.C.S. failed to score during 
a one man advantage, while at 14 minutes Saunders put 
U.T.S. ahead 1-0. 

In the second period Alport added another goal, and 
Trinity held off a pressing attack during a penalty to Lafleur. 


Midway through the third period both sides were a 
man short, but there was no scoring. At 15 minutes Saun- 
derson scored again making the score 3-0. During a double 
penalty Sullivan broke into the clear and beat Coriat for 
the final tally in the game. 

For the visitors, Alport and Saunderson played stand- 
out games, while Mather and Long played well for Trinity. 

T.C.S. — Bateman, Lafleur, Maipole, W^atson, Winnett, Trows- 
dale, Long. Lennard, Ketchum. West, Tice, Mather, Anstis (manager). 

^UDDLESIDE vs. PICKERING, at T.C.S., March 4. Won .5-2. 

Middleside earned another victory by defeating Picker- 
ing 5-2. Early in the first period, Leslie scored for T.C.S., 
but Pickering tied the score shortly after. Then Trinity 
took the lead again on a goal by Long only to have the score 
tied once again. In the second period Watson got the tie 
bi'eaker from a scramble in front of the net. In the closely 
fought third period Bateman and Leslie clinched the game 
for T.C.S. 

Despite the score, the Pickering goalie played a spec- 
tacular game. For Trinity, Leslie and Watson stood out. 

T.C.S. — Bateman, MacCosham, Marpole, Winnett, Watson, Trows- 
dale, Leslie, Long, Ketchum, West, Mather, Dunlop, Tice, Anstis 


>EU>DLESIDE vs. PORT HOPE, at T.C.S., March 10. Won 2-1. 

Middleside played their second game with Port Hope, 
defeating a greatly improved team 2-1. Port Hope took the 
lead at the twenty second mark and managed to hold it 
until late in the period when Winnett tied the score. Both 
teams went scoreless in a hard fought second period. The 
only goal of the third period, which proved to be the winner, 
was scored by Watson on a beautiful passing play with 


iVIJDDLESIDE vs. S.A.C., at T.C.S,, March 14. Won 2-1. 

On March 14, Middleside played host to S.A.C. in their 
return match, T.C.S. winning a 2-1 victory in a hard-fought 
game. S.A.C. had the edge in the early minutes but failed 
to score. Trowsdale put Trinity ahead from a scramble in 
front of the net, but the Saints quickly tied the score. In 
the second period MacCosham shoved in the winner when 
the goalie dropped the puck. Trinity came close on break- 
aways by Winnett and Marpole but the S.A.C. goalie stood 

The St. Andrew's defense played a good game, while 
Coriat, Bateman, MacCosham and Marpole played well for 

House Gaines 

The Bigside game was won by Bethune this year by 
a score of 6-3. Johnson and Arnold were the stars of the 
winners while dePencier, Yale and Donald stood out for 

The Middleside house game was won by Brent by a 
decided margin of 5-1. Bateman and Mather played best 
for the winners. Tice and West were best for Bethune. 

In the Littleside competition Boughner and Seagram 
carried the Brent team to a 4-2 victory over the opposing 
Bethune team. 


In a game played at Port Hope, on February 28, Little- 
side gained its third victory by a very decisive 13-0 score 
over U.T.S. Although Littleside were a more skilled team 
U.T.S. played a better game than the score would indicate. 
Seagram led the T.C.S. marksmen with a hat-trick. Tol- 
lestrup, Hyland and Cristall scored a pair each and Lash, 
Boughner, Budge and Overholt each tallied once. 


An 8-1 victory over the Port Hope Minor Midgets gave 
Littleside their fourth victory. Leading throughout the 
game, Trinity went ahead in the opening period on goals 
by Overholt and Cristall while Port Hope retaliated with 
a single. T.C.S. superiority was clearly shown in the final 
two periods as Hyland, Richardson, Budge, Dunlap, Cris- 
tall and Caryer each added a goal. 

In a close, hard fought game with Pickering, on March 
4, Littleside gained a well-desei'ved 3-2 victory. Dunlap put 
T.C.S. ahead with a goal in the early minutes but Pickering 
retaliated with two in the second period. Tollestrup tied 
the score to open the final period, and with only seconds 
remaining Dunlap scored the winner on a pass from Tol- 
lestrup. The line of Dunlap, Hyland and Tollestrup stood 
out for T.C.S. 

For the first time in the history of the School, Little- 
side had the pleasure of playing host to a team from Ash- 
bury College, Ottawa, on March 7. Trinity proved to be the 
superior team, gaining a 4-2 victory. Irwin tallied for the 
visitors in the opening minute of play but Hyland quickly 
tied the score. Tollestrup scored twice in the second period 
while Ashbury could only retaliate with a single. Hyland 
scored again in the final period to ensure the victory. 

We should like to thank Tom Lawson and the Ashbuiy 
team for coming so far to play us, and hope it will be pos- 
sible for a return engagement in the near future. 

In the return game with Lakefield, the tables were 
turned and the visitors emerged with a well-deserved victory. 
Ross gave Trinity an early lead which was quickly erased 
by a pair of Lakefield goals. Seagram tied the score to 
open the second period but midway through this period, 
Creelman of Lakefield scored what proved to be the clincher. 
Superb goal-tending on both sides prevented any further 
scoring despite some excellent chances for both teams, and 
the game ended 3-2 in favour of the Grove. 






T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. at Aiiiora, March 14. Lost 75-29. 

The powerful St. Andrew's team lived up to their previous 
showings when they easily defeated the Trinity team 75-29. 
In spite of being so decisively beaten, the School stood up 
well, and the game was wide open all the way. The Saints 
relied upon their drive and power plays, while Trinity stuck 
more to a defensive game. As a result, the game was fast 
and loose, although S.A.C. held control from the starting 

Trinity started out with lots of drive, but tired very 
quickly and by the end of the half the Saints had advanced 
to a 33-12 lead. The School, lacking depth, slowly lost 
ground as the half went along and the S.A.C. team seemed 
to improve. By the end of the game they had built up a 
75-29 lead. 

Ryall, Vaughan and Willoughby led the Saints' attack, 
scoring 49 points between them, while Ryley and Gordon 
played well for the School team. 

T.C.S. — Ryley 10, Gordon 10, Colbourne 3, Colbourne ii 2, Cowan 

3, Walker, Goodman, Board. 

SCHOOL \ s. U.T.S. at Port Hope, February 18. Lost 76-24. 

On February 18, T.C.S. were hosts to U.T.S. in a hard- 
fought basketball game. Although Trinity was behind 


throughout the game, they played better than the score 
might indicate. The visitors were much taller and had much 
more experience than the young Trinity team. Joynt, Milson, 
Ellis and Saunders played well for the winners, while Harris 
and Walker played best for the School. 

T.C.S.— Walker 8, Harris 6, Jemmett 4, Luxton 4, Fleming 2. 
Cowan, Mayberry. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C, at Port Hope, ^'^on 50-27. 

On February 25. Trinity Juniors played St. Andrew's 
Juniors at Port Hope. The game was very fast and Trinity 
showed a great improvement over their previous games to 
rack up their first win of the season. Harris and Jemmett 
played well and led Trinity to a 26-8 lead by half time. In 
the second half S.A.C. came back fighting, but Trinity kept 
up a great defence and held the Saints before going on to 
win 50-27. 

Walker, Jemmett and Harris played well for the win- 
ners, while McKee played well for St. Andrew's. 

T.C.S. — Walker 10. Fairburn 6, Jemmett 12, Harris 12, Luxton ?, 
Fleming 2, Mayberry 6. 


SCHOOL vs. R.M.C, at Port Hope, February 28. 

In the return match at T.C.S. the School team, repre- 
sented by A. Lafleur, Massey, Brewer, Hennan and Budge, 
won the match by a score of nine matches to one. As usual, 
this match was a great success and we can only look for- 
ward to more of them in the future.

SCHOOL vs. B.R.C.. at Port Hope, March 14. 

The Badminton Club from Toronto brought down a 
very strong team and defeated the School by four matches 
to one. This was the last match before the Little Big Four 
Tournament and was certainly helpful for final pointers. 
The School was represented by A. Lafleur, Massey, Brewer, 

Round I — A. Lafleur lost to J. McMurrich (0-3). 

Luxton lost to Greey (1-3). 

Massey defeated Weld (3-1).

SCHOOL vs. NICHOL'S, at RicUey, on March 7. 

For the first time, T.C.S. played St. Nichol's School 
from Buffalo at Ridley. It was a very interesting trip and 
provided a great deal of fun. The visiting American school 
seemed a little weaker on the whole, but they certainly 
managed to hold their own. The School team was repre- 
sented by Lafleur A., Massey, Brewer, Heenan and Budge. 
Trinity won the day's play by a score of three matches to 
two. The games were: 

Lafleur A. defeated McLean (3-0). 

Massey defeated Robb (3-0). 

Brewer defeated Hobbie (3-0). 

Heenan lost to Lamb (3-2). 

Budge lost to Hardie (3-2). 

School Squash Tournaments 

This year's annual senior squash tournament found a 
field of twenty-seven players. As the draw got under way 


both good squash and good sportsmanship were seen in each 
match. Lafleur A., Winnett, Massey and Higgins ii reached

In the Beginners' Handicap Tournament this year, 
Drummond, Parker ii, Blaikie and Verrall reached the semi- 
final bracket out of a field of fourteen competitors. In the 
finals, Blaikie defeated Drummond to take top honours and 
the squash racquet donated by Mr. Arnold Massey. 

Little Big Four Squash Tournament 
At the Badminton Racquet Club, Toronto, March 21. 

The annual Little Big Four Squash Tournament was as 
usual a great success, with U.C.C, S.A.C., and T.C.S. all 
represented. By lunch time the matches were almost exactly 
divided between Ridley and T.C.S. In the afternoon the 
Ridley team pulled ahead and won the tourney by a score 
of nine matches to six. The Jones vs. Lafleur match was the 
highlight of the afternoon, with Jones winning the first and 
second games by the scores of fifteen, thirteen and fifteen- 
eleven. Then unexpectedly, Lafleur came back and won the 
next two, fifteen - fourteen and fifteen - seven. In the final 
game Jones proved the better and went on to win by fifteen- 

The games played by the School were: 

Lafleur (T.C.S.) defeated Burton (U.C.C), 3-0.

The 1953 edition of the Little Big Four Swimming Meet 
took place on Saturday, March 7, at the Hart House pool in 
Toronto, and St. Andrew's just managed to edge out U.C.C. 
to take top honours, 36-35. While the School did not excel 
itself, all the members of the team tried very hard. Captain 
John Gordon led the way with a victory in the 100 yards 
free style and a second place in the 200 yards event. In the 
diving competition, Pete Phippen and Karl Newland, both 
of T.C.S., finished one-two to give the School some badly 
needed points. For the winners. Hill was the best, although 
the whole S.A.C. team made an excellent display. The meet 
was a very successful one, and the Trinity team looks like 
a very strong contender for next year's crown. We should 
like to thank and congratulate Mr. Hodgetts and his assist- 
ant, Dave Seymour, for the excellent work they have done 
for the team this year. 

The final standing was: 

1, S.A.C, 36 points; 2, U.C.C, 35 points; 3, Ridley, 31 
points; 4, T.CS., 27 points. 

We congratulate S.A.C. and U.C.C.

The '52-'53 season in Gymnastics has been very suc- 
cessful. Phippen, Blackburn, Burns, Leslie, George, Hyland. 
Overholt, Boucher, Campbell, V/innelt and Matthev/s have 
been turning out to practices regularly and it is from this 
group that both Senior and Junior teams were chosen to 
represent the School in various meets. The members of all 
the teams this year are very much indebted to Mr. Arm- 
strong for the fine coaching they have received. 

The School had a Junior Competition with the Humber- 
side Juniors in Toronto on February 27. This team was 
composed of Overholt, Hyland, Winnett, Campbell and 
Matthews. Although they competed very well, they lost by 
a small margin. Hum.berside got 2,518 points, T.C.S. 2,446. 
Nick Bruchovsky of Humberside won v/ith 710 out of 900 
points. Overholt was close behind him with 693. 

The Senior team has had more than its usual share of 
competitions this year, the first of which was here with 
North Toronto Collegiate on February 24. This meet ended 
very closely, with North Toronto winning 723-720. On an 
individual basis, Phippen came first in the meet with a total 
of 242 out of 300. Burns came fifth with 176, followed by 
Blackburn at 169. 

A team consisting of Phippen, Blackburn, Burns, Leslie 
and George competed in the Eastern Canadian Competition 
at McGill on Feb. 28. Although their average age was very 
low, they were obliged to enter the open competition where 
they were up against teams of university level and higher. 
In the all-round totals, Phippen came third, 11 points behind 
the winner, Jack King of McGill, with a total of 873 out of 
1.200. Ken Marshall, the '50-'51 T.C.S. Captain of Gym, 
followed him closely with 834 points. Ken won the indi- 



vidiial Tumbling Championship and Phippen won the 
Parallel Bars. 

On March 7, another competition was held in our gym, 
this time with S.A.C. A six-man team of Blackburn, Bums, 
Leslie, George, Overholt and Winnett won, with Blackburn 
receiving 612 points out of 800, followed by Bums who had 

The School was also represented in the Toronto Second- 
ary School meet. The team of Phippen, Blackburn, Bums, 
Leslie and Overholt went to compete on an exhibition basis 
and all placed in the first ten. Out of a total of 600, Phippen 
came first with 591, Blackburn third with 463 and Burns 
fifth with 448. Although T.C.S. won the competition in total 
team points, we have no claim to the T.S.S.A.A. champion- 
ship because we are outside the Toronto area. It is hoped 
that both the Senior and Junior team will be invited to 
the T.S.S.A.A. meet next year. Congratulations to Humber- 
side for winning the year's championship. 

A trip to the University of Alichigan at Ann Arbor was 
taken by Phippen, Blackburn, Burns, Leslie, and Hyland. 
They practised with the Michigan team for two days and 
returned on Saturday, April 4. They seemed to have had a 
wonderful time and to have learned something as well! 

A team consisting of Burns, Leslie, Hyland, Overholt, 
Winnett and Boucher represented the School in a Hart 
House competition on April 18. S.A.C. and Ridley also 
joined in the meet, which was marked by outside judges. 
T.C.S. finished first with S.A.C. running second and Ridley 
third. Burns of T.C.S. was first all-around performer and 
Cosier of S.A.C. placed second. The total team scores were 
very close and there was a chance for any team to win the

In spite of rather poor weather, enthusiasm for Cricket 
is as high as ever in the Junior School. There is something 
about the game which seems to appeal to all ages and sizes. 
The crack of a ball on a cricket bat is certainly one of the 
nicer sounds to hear on a fine, sunny afternoon. 

Tumbling is becoming increasingly popular in the Junior 
School. One seems to have to be made of rubber to do well 
at it! The introduction of a Tumbling Team into the Junior 
School section of the Gym Display made a very pleasant 

Congratulations are due the Gym Team for the very 
hard work they have i^ut in this year. The improvement 
they have shown recently is remarkable and a great tribute 
to the fine work done by Mr. Armstrong and Phippen. 

The Junior School is to have the loan of a TV set for 
Coronation Day and we are all most grateful to Mrs. Charles 
Jennings for making this possible. 

Our sincere thanks to the Toronto Branch of the Ladies' 
Guild for their generous contribution to our Library Fund. 
A number of new books have recently been added to our 
shelves through their kindness. 

During the flood crisis in Europe, the Junior School 
students voluntarily gave of their Tuck money the gratify- 
ing sum of $20.00 towards the Overseas Relief Fund. This 
amount was forwarded to the Red Cross for that purpose. 

Over $30.00 has also been collected to date for the 
\^'estminster Abbey Appeal Fund. 

Dr. William McKie, the organist and choirmaster of 
the Abbey, was a visitor to the School in May of last year. 


A report from the Junior School Librarian, compiled 
at the beginning of this term, has showm some very en- 
couraging statistics. 


Well over one thousand books have been read in the 
Junior School this year which constitutes an over-all average 
of about 15 books per boy. When one considers that the 
younger boys tend to read less than the others, this means 
that the older forms have read a great deal. 

The eight boys in the top form have accounted for 
240 books with four of their number reading over thirty 
books during the first two terms and the remainder of the 
class a minimum of twenty-five. 

A survey of the records shows that the following are 
the most popular modern novels: 

The Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway) 
The Wooden Horse (Williams) 
The Caine Mutiny (Wouk) 
The Silver Chalice (Costain). 


Grave of the past, this will always be 

A monument to those who suffered death eternally. 

In those dark walls, in every stone, 

There will they lie, a reminder of their home. 

This monument will forever hold 
Those, who nobly fought of old: 
They did not die in peace, but in the toil 
Of fighting for New France's valued soil. 

Gk)ne now are the ships of yore, 

Gone is the cannon's roar. 

Gone are the men, no more. 

Just as a monument of those who fought. 

Fighting for Quebec, nor just for naught. 

— D. M. Price, Form m. 



Walking down a bumpy, dusty lane, I happened to come 
upon an old, deserted farm. 

The farmhouse must have dated back to the eighteen 
hundreds, when the style of architecture was quite different 
from the modern trend. It was a rectangular-shaped house, 
with a small woodshed adjoining the main building. 

The roof was covered by rows of shingles which were 
green with moss, and in some places the shingles were gone 
completely. The windows were boarded up, and a loose 
shutter clapped noisily against the rotted window frame. 
Two brick chimneys sprouted out of the roof, their original 
shape indistinguishable because of the gaping holes left by 
fallen bricks. The funnels of the chimney were streaked 
with white from starlings' droppings, and the little birds 
could be heard chirping away inside. A door, blackened 
with age, swung to and fro on one hinge, filling the air 
with an eerie creaking. The stones of the foundation were 
jagged and mislaid, like a row of ill-formed teeth. 

The piece of land which surrounded the farm was of 
^ poor quality, with boulders and broken glass littering it. An 
K old wagon lay on its side, its back broken and both wheels 
■ missing from the only axle. An ancient wall surrounding 
I the entire premises had long since tumbled down, leaving 
I a pile of rubble and an occasional timber prop still standing. 
WL This farm is just one of the many derelicts you may discover 
■L walking in the Canadian countryside.

For many centuries, inventors have watched the move- 
ments of birds so that they could invent the airplane, but 
they watched the wrong model. They were always fascinated 
by the flapping wings of birds when they should have 
observed the flying fish and how its tail, vibrating vigorously 
in the water from side to side, acts as a motor propeller; 


how this flyer taxis over the water, the front part of its 
body raised over the surface at a slight angle; how it then 
takes off, making use of air currents and controlling its 
flight both on a horizontal and vertical plane. 

This taxiing extends for perhaps forty feet and the 
flight up to a hundred yards, as far as two hundred yards 
in some species. These flights are perhaps a method of 
escape from their enemies, the dolphins, sharks and tuna. 
Vvliile underwater, both pairs of the fin-v/ings are folded 
and cling to the body; they spread on reaching the air and 
act as glider wings; they do not flap and the fish do not 
truly fly but soar. When skipping the crests of waves, their 
tail touches the water and works like a propeller for a 
moment and gives new impetus to the flight. 

Flying fish live in the warm seas only and the California 
species inhabits the southern coastal waters of the state. 
It is edible though rarely fished commercially and there are 
many different lengths of Flying Fish. They vary from 

three to twelve inches. — R- S. Bannerman, Form lA.

Mr. and Mrs. Wren are very busy carrying sticks, grass 
and cobwebs to their new home where later Mrs. Wren will 
place eight speckled eggs. The buds on the trees have split 
open and the tiny leaves can be seen coming forth. The 
sap can almost be heard as it rushes up branches to supply 
the leaves with food. The grass is no longer a dull yellow 
but has turned a velvet green. 

Then high above all this in the tall, erect pine, the crow, 
king of all birds, carefully watches over this new, spring

The Speckled Trout is one of the most beautiful, fresh- 
water fish. It is one of the strongest fighters and swimmers 
for its size. The average size of the speckled trout in streams 
is about five-eighths of a pound, and in lakes it ranges from 
three-quarters of a pound to a pound and a half. Sportsmen 
fish for speckled trout a great deal. 

The Ontario branch of the Department of Lands and 
Forests have put out strict regulations regarding the num- 
ber of speckled trout caught. Only six trout per person 
can be caught each day. A speckled trout cannot be kept 
if it is under seven inches in length. 

The base colour of a speckled trout is dark brown; the 
spots which are on the sides of the trout are red, yellow, 
white, and a light brown. The head, tail, and dorsal fins 
are dark brown. The pectorial fins are a light brown. The 
only white on the body of the speckled trout is a strip 
about an inch wide running down the centre of the fish's 
belly. The meat is a rich pink in colour. 

The Speckled Trout is truly the most beautiful fresh- 
water fish I know.

Old Fort Henry is situated on a point of land over- 
looking the City of Kingston. The fort was built by the 
British in 1843 in case of another American invasion. It 
was never used in actual battle but men were trained there 
up to about 1890. During the Second World War it was 
used to house German prisoners-of-war, and after the war, 
was turned into a tourist attraction. 

The fort is divided into two sections cut off from each 
other by a moat. If the upper half is captured, then the 
lower half may still be held. The upper half was used for 
offices and officers' quarters. In the lower half is a large 
parade ground and surrounding this are the kitchens, 


corporals' rooms on the first floor, and soldiers' quarters 
on the second. All these rooms have been turned into 
museums which show the dress and equipment of that era. 
On top of these rooms the guns are mounted, two 24-pound 
guns, five 12-pound guns, and three smaller ones. Dungeons 
are set back into the twelve-foot thick walls. 

Fort Henry is truly the Citadel of Upper Canada.

Map Reading is a very useful subject. In case some 
people don't know what Map Reading is, I shall explain. 

To read a map you must use special signs such as a 
square black block for a house. There are also signs for 
roads, bridges and so on. If you are looking for the height 
of a certain hill, there are contour lines on the maps to read 
this accurately. 

To make it easy for a person to find a place on a map 
like this, there are numbers such as 280 - 642, and you 
measure the distance across and down the map until you 
come to that certain place. 

Form lA is the first to take up Map Reading. Be sure 

you are accurate in every way!

Rolling, churning, rising, falling, dashing upon the old 
sea wall, it never stops its assault of the beach. Creeping 
along its sandy surface and within close view of its goal, 
it seems to falter and as if by a magnet to be drawn into 
that churning havoc, again to charge upon that little stony 
sea wall. Clash after clash, spray is sent high into that 
light grey air of that cold morning. Then back again it 
rolls into those dark green waters. 


This display, although beautiful to see, is only watched 
by a disappointed and disgusted seaman — disappointed be- 
cause today he cannot hunt the inhabitants of these cold 
waters, and disgusted for he sees the wreckage of his only 
water craft thrown far up on the beach.

encouragement and inspiration it was to find such an en-

Mr. Esca Brooke-Daykin ('86-'90) died at his home in 
Toronto on February 16. He was born in Sarawak, East 
Indies, the son of Sir Charles Brooke, and a member of 
the family which ruled over Sarawak as "White rajahs" for 
nearly a century. Mr. Brooke-Daykin was adopted by Arch- 
deacon Daykin and sent to T.C.S. At the School he took a 
keen interest in all phases of life and was very good at 
track and field athletics. He became a Prefect, and played 
on the Football team. He went on to Queen's and entered 
business in Toronto, acting for many years as Secretary to 
the late Mrs. Dunlap. He was a warden of St. Clement's 
Church, Toronto, and a member of the congregation for 
forty years. Keenly interested in the outdoors, he belonged 
to many fishing and hunting clubs ; his gardens were famous 
and he was one of the early members of the North Toronto 
Horticultural Society.

Charlie Pentland ('22-'27) was killed in the crash of 
the C.P.A. comet jet airliner in Karachi on March 2. He 
was the chief pilot and director of overseas flight operations 
for the Canadian Pacific Airlines and a veteran of the 
Transport Command in the last war. He had made over 150 
Atlantic crossings and was considered one of the world's 
most expert pilots. 

He came to T.C.S. from St. John's School, Winnipeg, 
and soon entered fully into the life of the School. He did 
well in his work and played all the games on Middleside. 

Entering the University of Manitoba, he studied en- 
gineering and learned to fly in an R.C.A.F. reserve squadron. 
In 1937 he joined Imperial Airways as a pilot and flew 
several European routes. Later he transferred to flying- 
boats, piloting these between England and Singapore. After 
his distinguished service in the transport command during 
the war he took charge of Constellation aircraft for B.O.A.C. 
and in 1949 he joined the Canadian Pacific Airlines in the 
capacity of Pacific Operations manager. He was one of 
the pioneers in jet flying and took a keen interest in their 

His sudden death removes one of Canada's most dis- 
tinguished airmen and is a terrible blow to his family and 
friends. The School gives its heartfelt sympathy to his wife 
and son.

At the time of writing, the School year is over, the 
Upper School Departmentals are over, and time stands still, 
gathering its strength before it hurls us off into the summer. 

We, who are leaving, to come back only as Old Boys, 
look back on our school life with mixed feelings, but we are 
m.ore concerned with the future, because it is the future 
that is concerned with us. Life lies ahead of us, and we 
lie before life. 

We will always remember the School. She gave us our 
start; she has spent all these years, from away back in 
the J.S., preparing us for this our adventure, for it is an 
adventure that is painted before us by life. 

To the boys who are following the path we have al- 
ready left, we wish all the best of everything. It is up 


to them to make the best of what they have, to take life 
seriously — there is little greater happiness than to accom- 
plish the latter when it is coupled with laughter and humour 

and good comradeship. 


The Record Editors wish to thank their staff for their 
co-operation during the year, especially the typists, who 
get their work en masse, and those who helped to prepare 
this August issue, the hardest of all. The health of a School 
magazine depends on its staff, and this year its members 
have been untiring in their efforts to maintain a high

On May 10, Rogation Sunday, the Reverend C. R. Feild- 
ing, Dean of Divinity at Trinity College, Toronto, gave us 
some excellent advice on prayer and how one should pray. 

In the eleventh chapter of St. Luke, Christ gives us 
the Lord's Prayer. The first part concerns God; how we 
address him simply, affectionately, how we want the world 
to know that God is good and that His will be done per- 
fectly on earth. The second part concerns ourselves; how 
we need divine help so that we can go on fighting for the 

In conclusion Dr. Feilding advised us not to pray for 
things just for our own pleasure but for things that we 
must have. To do this we must understand God, for it must 
be God's will. 



"Life is made up of compulsions and choices" said the 
Very Rev. W. E. Jackson, Dean of Niagara, when he spoke 
to the School on May 17. 

The first compulsion is life itself; we must live whether 
we so desire or not. However, the kind of life that we make 
for ourselves is our own choice. We should mould our life 
in our own way and turn our dreams into actions. 

The second compulsion is that we must live with our- 
selves. The kind of self with whom we live is again our 
own choice. We should develop our talents as did Living- 
stone, Gibson and other self-made men. "The strongest man 
is the man that stands alone." 

To live with other people is the third great compulsion. 
The choice of our attitude towards them is left to our own 
discretion. The Dean described how we should accept situa- 
tions as they are and not what they might have been. We 
should make decisions by ourselves rather than be influenced 
by the thoughts of others. We ought to look on life as that 
which we are capable of doing, not as that which other 
people can do for us. 

The Dean concluded by saying that these compulsions 
and choices are wrought together by God, and that man 
nmst live life not as he necessarily wants to live it, but with 
God showing him the way. 


The Headmaster spoke at Matins on Whitsunday, May 
24th; in the congregation were Old Boys and their wives, 
here for the Old Boys' Week-end. 

Mr. Ketchum mentioned some of the great cathedrals 
and churches he had seen during his travels in France, 
Spain and England, "these being living witnesses to the 
faith and fervour which once moved the whole Christian 
world." He mentioned the Good Friday processions in Spain 
in which, in the small towns, the whole community took part 


and re-lived the tremendously moving events of the first 
Good Friday. 

"This is Whit Sunday, the birthday of the Church, or 
perhaps more truly the Confirmation Day of the Church. A 
small group of Christ's disciples were gathered together 
almost dazed by the awe-inspiring events of the trial, the 
Crucifixion, and the Resurrection. They were suddenly in- 
spired, greatly excited, and uplifted by a supreme, con- 
tagious faith in their Lord and His teaching; all doubt and 
despair were cast off, and through them and their successors 
the Christian Faith was carried through the then known 
world. It is said that three thousand people were converted 
on that day and in the past two thousand years countless 
mOlions of lives have been strengthened and enriched by 
the power of Christ and His teaching." 

The Headmaster mentioned a speech he had heard given 
by Viscount Cecil in the House of Lords. Lord Cecil had said 
that Christian civilization was responsible for every im- 
provement and advance made in a thousand years. Russian 
materialism and Western materialism were making an 
attack on the spiritual nature of men. "If you ignore or 
abolish the spiritual nature of man, you destroy the foun- 
dation on which rests all Truth, Justice and Freedom." 

"The Spirit of Man is the Candle of the Lord," continued 
the Head; "it lights the dark places and shows the way." He 
spoke of Spirit in games, the Spirit which inspired the Old 
Boys to build the Memorial Chapel and in previous years to 
build and save the School, the Spirit which saved Christian 
civilization in two world wars; and especially the Spirit 
which draws us close to God and reveals to us the good Hfe. 

"Let us try to keep that spirit of the first Whit Sunday 
alive in our hearts, enriched and nourished by thinking of 
these great events, by reading the Bible, by Prayer, Medi- 
tation, Worship and Communion. The Church brings it all 
home to us but too many of us, when free to choose, are 
led by the humours of the moment, by the glittering and 


temporary attraction; may we more often follow our best 
thoughts, that inner voice which speaks to all of us." 


For our annual Memorial Day Service, held this year 
on May 31, we had as our guest preacher the Reverend W. 
H. Turner, B.A., L.Th., B.D., the rector of Bowmanville. 
His sermon was built about the word "Hero." 

He mentioned the feats of heroism about which we read 
almost every day in newspapers. Unfortunately, the majority 
of us never have an opportunity to become famous through 
a gallant deed, but we all can live heroically if we take ex- 
ample from different people. 

Mr. Turner described how Abraham could have lived 
a comfortable life had he not heard the call of God to go 
out to found a nation. Although he was not at all times 
heroic, for he was clearly afraid when he went to Egypt 
during the famine, he is now known as a hero. 

Peter the Apostle, who denied three times that he knew 
Jesus, later redeemed himself by going out into the same 
group of people and proclaiming Christ to be the Saviour. 
Mr. Turner went on to mention the heroic life which Queen 
Elizabeth is living owing to her sacrifice of home life and 
freedom of action. She and the Duke together will bear the 
tremendous burden of service to her people in the British 
Isles and in the Commonwealth. 

Old Boys of T.C.S. who left to serve their country heard 
the call of duty. We should all pay tribute to those who 
gave their lives so heroically in order that peace might be 

In conclusion, Mr. Turner stated that we shall some- 
time hear the call of God to serve Him and one's fellow 
men in the Priesthood, in the armed services, or in some 
other worthy association. "If any call goes out to us to- 
day," he said, "it is the call to live heroically." 


The last part of the service was held, as usual, at the 
Memorial Cross. The Headmaster read the names of the 
Fallen. Then Mrs. N. O. Seagram placed a wreath at the 
foot of the Cross. The Choir sang two hymns unaccom- 
panied, the School Hymn, "Blest Are the Pure in Heart," 
and "The Strife is o'er the Battle Done," and the Trumpeters 
sounded the Last Post and the Reveille. Prayers ended the 


On the eve of Coronation Day, Monday, June 1, the 
Headmaster spoke to the School in Chapel concerning the 
significance of the Coronation. 

He mentioned the Queen as an example of ideal woman- 
hood, endowed with so many graces and virtues as daughter, 
wife and mother, a perfect pattern for her subjects; this 
has not always been the case in history, "We can think of 
her as one of ourselves, with similar likes and dislikes, but 
who tomorrow will accept a duty and responsibility which 
will give her daily concern, thought, and care, and divorce 
her in large measure from home life as we know it." 

Then Mr. Ketchum mentioned the Queen as the head 
of the British Commonwealth of Nations, the first Queen of 
Canada, whose official title in Canada is "Elizabeth II, by 
the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom, Canada, and her 
other realms and territories, Queen, Head of the Common- 
wealth, Defender of the Faith." He spoke of the Common- 
wealth as the first successful League of Nations, now com- 
prising the United Kingdom, seven independent countries, 
Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, 
Pakistan and Ceylon, and more than 40 colonies and pro- 
tectorates, "a medley of races, tongues, laws, and customs 
all linked to the Crown." In the Commonwealth are some 
five hundred million people and some sixteen million square 
miles of territory. Under the Statute of Westminster in 
1931 it was decreed that the Crown was the symbol of the 


free association of the members of the British Common- 
wealth of Nations; that those members are united by com- 
mon allegiance to the Crown (India is now excepted from 
this clause) and that any change in succession to the Throne 
must have the consent of all the parliaments of the Do- 
minions. "The Queen is one Queen yet seven Queens." 

The Headmaster then explained in some detail the 
ceremony of the Coronation service; it was an ancient cere- 
mony over a thousand years old, beginning probably with 
King Edgar's coronation in 973. He mentioned that West- 
minster Abbey itself was 900 years old and owed its con- 
struction largely to Edward the Confessor and Henry III; 
William the Conqueror had been crowned there in 1066. 

After describing the ceremony the Headmaster re- 
minded us that it had its roots deep in history, that it 
provided a continuity with the past and is a symbol of the 
character of kingship in a Christian commonwealth, the 
central conception being "Rex est sub Deo et sub lege". It is, 
he said, primarily a religious ceremony, the Coronation 
service being embodied in the Communion service of the 
Church of England; he told us that this service would be 
heard and seen by more people of the world than ever 
before had, at one time, seen or heard such a service. 

Mr. Ketchum mentioned the part that the scholars of 
Westminster School had in the opening of the service and 
reminded us that Trinity College School was affiliated with 
Westminster School. He then spoke of the presentation of 
the Holy Bible and quoted the words used, and the historical 
aspect of the Anointing. He also quoted the vow of homage 
made by the Archbishop and by Prince Philip. "This is," 
said the Headmaster, "a fitting time to dedicate ourselves to 
serve our God, our Queen and our fellowmen, striving to 
maintain justice, friendship and peace between peoples, in- 
spired by the words of our young Queen, spoken on her 
twenty-first birthday: 

'I declare before you all that my whole life whether it 
be long or short shall be devoted to your service and to the 


service of the great Imperial family to which we all belong. 
But I have not the strength to carry out this resolution 
alone unless you join in it with me as I now invite you to do. 
God help me to make good my vow and God bless all of you 
who are willing to share it with me'." 


The Chapel, crowded with parents and visitors, always 
appears to inspire the Choir Boys to give their best and such 
was the case at the Leaving Service. 

This service brought the choir's vocal activities to a 
close with the accompanying and regretful thought that so 
many useful and enthusiastic boys would not occupy seats 
in the choir stalls again in September. 

Those particularly in mind were the boys who were 
also in the J.S. choir some years ago and volunteered again 
to help us after the necessary absence during the changing 
of their voices. These were John Bonnycastle, this year's 
Head Choir Boy, who cheerfully assisted the Choirmaster 
at all times in the many duties that are associated with an 
H. C. B. Others we would mention in this category are John 
Gordon, Adamson, dePencier, and the Lafleur brothers, 
Anthony and Henri. These and other choir boys who are 
leaving this term, Ryley i, Anstis, McCaughey and Yale, we 
remember gratefully, wishing them all happiness and suc- 
cess in the future. 

The fact that Molson, Scott, Tice, Moor, Thompson, 
Martin, Blackburn, Brine and Savage will be with us in 
September to help re-organize the choir is most encouraging. 

Several changes are anticipated in the treble section — 
boys will grow up and consequently voices will break — alas! 

In retrospect, the year's activities have been most suc- 
cessful; our repertoire has been varied and considerably 
increased; the boys' ability to learn quickly and well re- 
sulted in most special music and Anthems being sung from 


memory which adds to the artistic effect and avoids the dis- 
tracting tendency to fidget with music. 

May we express our gratitude to the choristers for all 
their hard work, for giving up so much of their limited 
spare time to practice and congratulate them on the very 
successful results. 

We should also like to mention our Chaplain for his 
encouraging and frequent appearance at choir practices and 
assistance always, also Miss E. Wilkin, choir-mother, always 
on hand to see that our vestments were just right and sew 
on the button that invariably chooses the wrong moment 
to be detached from its moorings, to the band of Crucifers 
who preceded us with such dignity in our processions and 
also to Mrs. B. M. Osier for kindly presenting us with our 
badge of office — the choir pins.

The Headmaster has received the following letter from 
His Excellency the Governor General: 

"Mr. Charles La Ferle, Honorary Secretary of the Cana- 
dian National European Flood Relief Fund, has told me 
of the School's spontaneous and willing offer to help when 
the campaign for the Fund was announced. 

"Now that the campaign, carried on by the Canadian 
National European Flood Relief Committee, has ended, I 
want to thank you most sincerely for the assistance you 
have so kindly given. 

"I know you will agree that the campaign was most 
satisfactory. At present the total sum received is $3,000,- 

"The operation is now entering a more difficult period 
involving rehabilitation in the flooded areas, which might 
spread over several months. 

"I am grateful to T.C.S. for the contribution you made 
to the success of the appeal." 


On Sunday, May 10, the Rev. C. R. Feilding showed 
his fine collection of slides in the Assembly Hall. The slides 
depicted scenes from a trip made last summer by Archbishop 
Renison, the Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum, and the Rever- 


end and Mrs. Feilding. The first building on Hudson's Bay, 
the white expanse of the Athabaskan glacier, and an altar 
frontal made of painted caribou hide were among the many 
slides shown. Mr. Feilding is indeed one of the best amateur 
photographers we have ever seen and we hope to have the 
opportunity of seeing more examples of his photography in 
the not too distant future. 


The United Counties' Chamber Orchestra under the 
direction of Mr. J. A. Prower gave a concert in the Memorial 
Chapel on May 13. The orchestra consisted of John Wickett, 
first violin; Mervin Lawson, second violin; Robin Russel, 
Mrs. F. Russel, third violin; William Carter, 'cello; Gordon 
Marigold, organ; and J. A. Prower, oboe. 

The orchestra played very beautifully the Concerto in 
G minor No. 3 for oboe and organ by Handel, the suite No. 3 
in D major for strings and continue by Bach arranged by 
Woodhouse, the Concerto for oboe and strings by Correlli 
arranged by Barbirolli and the Concerto No. 2 in B flat for 
organ and strings by Handel. All those boys who attended 
are looking forward to a return engagement next year. 


It is hoped that a good number of younger Old Boys 
will visit the School over the Thanksgiving Holiday Week- 
end, October 10 - 12. An Ontario vs. Quebec football game 
might be arranged, when Ontario would have an opportunity 
to rub out the hockey defeat in January. 

Derek Hayes who has been ill all term has made a 
very satisfactory recovery. 


Messrs. Angus Scott and John Willmer took a group 
of eighteen T.C.S. boys to the West in June and July. The 
trip included visits to the West Coast, where they were most 
hospitably entertained by Dr. and Mrs. Donald Paterson, 
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Jukes, Mrs. Ernest Rogers, and others, 
to Calgary, and to a ranch. Ten days were spent on a saddle 
trip through the Rockies. 

The School cabled its good wishes to Dr. William Mc- 
Kie, organist of Westminster Abbey, just before the Corona- 
tion service. Dr. McKie, who visited T.C.S. in May 1952, 
sent a note of appreciation to the School. 


The second Fathers vs. their own Sons cricket match 
was played on May 24 and resulted in a win for the sons by 
85 to 83, or 65-3/10 to 61 by the Seagram patented scoring 
method. Last year the Fathers won by 63-1/3 to 51-2/3 al- 
though the Sons scored more runs. 

Those playing this year were: 

Fathers — N. O. Seagram (Capt.), J. W. Seagram, J. C. 
dePencier, S. B. Saunders, B. M. Osier, C. F. W. Burns, G. R. 
Blaikie, P. J. B. Lash, L. C. Bonnycastle, S. B. Cennard, 
P. A. C. Ketchum, R. E. Merry. 

Sons — J. D. Seagram, R. G. Seagram, M. C. dePencier, 
S. A. Saunders, A. W. B. Osier, H. M. Burns, R. J. Blaikie, 
J. R. M. Lash, M. C. Bonnycastle, J. C. Bonnycastle, S. P. 
Lennard, J. A. C. Ketchum, J. R. A. Merry. 

The Seagram rules used in the Fathers vs. Sons matches 
are as follows: 

The purpose of the game is to determine whether the 
individual father is superior to his son with bat and ball 
and whether, collectively, the fathers are their sons' 
superiors. Consequently the M.C.C. rules are abrogated in- 
sofar as they pertain to the sequence of the game and method 
of scoring and the following rules are substituted therefor: 


1. When a player bats, his father (son) shall bowl the first 
ball to him and shall continue as one of the two bowlers 
until the player is out or retires. 

2. When a player is out or retires, the over terminates. 

3. A player shall retire on scoring 15 runs or more. He shall 
receive credit for 15 runs only. 

4. If a player is 

(a) bowled, caught, stumped or his wicket is thrown 
down by his father (son) the fielding team is award- 
ed five points. 

(b) out by any other means, the fielding team is awarded 
two points plus one point if the player's father (son) 
is bowling to him at the time. 

Note — If the player is caught and bowled by his father 
(son) five points only are awarded the fielding team. 

5. The batting team is awarded one point for every three 
runs scored by a player — fractional points count. 

6. The batting team is awarded one point for every six extras 
scored — fractional points to count. 

7. The team obtaining the highest aggregate points at bat 
and in the field is declared the winner. 


In 1951 six boys took out life insurance policies and 
made the dividends over to the School. This year a sum 
of eighteen dollars and some cents has been sent to the 
School as dividends on these policies and it has been decided 
to institute a special fund to be known as "The 1951 Bursary 
Fund." Next year the dividends will be increased by those 
accruing from the policies taken out in 1952, and in 1955 
they will be increased again. It may be possible by 1955 
to award a bursary every year from the fund and eventually 
it may become a very valuable bursary. Some twenty boys 
of this year's leaving class have made out applications for 
policies, more than ever before. 













Coronation Day was celebrated by a whole holiday. In 
the morning, however, the Cadet Corps took part in a parade 
through Port Hope to the Central Park. Here a brief drum- 
head service was held during which the Queen was officially 
recognized and a brief address given. After the ceremony, 
we marched back to School. Much praise is deserved by 
the band, who, although several members short, performed 

After lunch, the School watched excellent television 
pictures of the Coronation itself on a set given to us by the 
Montreal branch of the Old Boys' Association. To end a 
long but enjoyable day, an excellent display of fireworks 
was given on the terrace. 


The morning of May 9 dawTied bright and warm. 
Throughout the School could be heard the sounds of violent 
brushing and polishing, as the T.C.S. Cadet Corps prepared 
for its annual Inspection. At ten-thirty the band sounded 
the fall in, and the Squadron awaited the arrival of Group 
Captain D. H. McCaul, CD., an Old Boy, who was to take 
the salute and inspect the corps. The Inspection was fol- 
lowed by the March Past in column of route, advance in 
review order, and the march past in close column, and finally 
the house drill, won this year by Bethune House, all of which 
v/ere very well executed. During the house drill, a flight 
of Texans, a T-33, and three Vampire jets flew overhead. 

After a buffet lunch in the Hall the visitors adjourned 
to the gym to watch the Junior and Senior School gym dis- 
plays. The High Bar team was the highlight of the after- 
noon with both Blackburn and Phippen doing very difficult 
"giants." At the conclusion of the physical training pro- 
gramme, the Headmaster introduced Group Captain McCaul 
who addressed the visitors and the boys. He expressed his 
pleasure at being asked to inspect the Cadet Corps but said 


he was rather embarrassed because of all the very important 
men who had preceded him as Inspecting Officers. He said, 
however, that if he ever were asked to inspect the Cadets, 
and he didn't think he ever would, he would definitely ask 
the Headmaster for a whole holiday. 

Group Captain McCaul commented on the high standard 
of drill that he had seen during the morning and afternoon 
and said that the R.C.A.F. was very glad to have T.C.S. as 
an affiliated squadron. In his day, the marching was done 
in white ducks and red sweaters, the new boy system was 
different and the visits to the Headmaster's office were 
terrifying events as he expected they still were. He was 
very pleased to see that now T.C.S. football teams under 
the excellent coaching of Mr. Hodgetts were showing that 
they could beat Ridley. 

In closing. Group Captain McCaul told of a remark Mr. 
Charles Burns had made to him, "Many changes have been 
made, but all in all, T.C.S. is the best School in Canada." 


The annual presentation of athletic prizes was held on 
Friday evening, June 5, on the terrace south of Bethune 
House. Many parents and visitors had arrived for this pre- 
leaving day ceremony which was followed by an informal 
concert in the Hall. Included in the program were a number 
of familiar School songs rendered with spirit by the Choir 
and piano solos by Mr. Tony Prower and Blackburn. Mr. 
Prower was heard in a selection of Jerome Kern hits and 
Bach's "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring." Blackburn played 
the first movement of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and 
his own version of "Bumble Boogie." Bob Ferrie was also 
featured in the piano spotlight with his own rendition of 
Star Dust and Tenderly. 

Following the musical programme, two films were 
shown in the Assembly Hall. The first, a movie of the School 
in technicolour, was received with great enthusiasm. Filmed 


by Owen Jones, an Old Boy, the scenes featured shots of 
the annual inspection, exciting moments in the S.A.C. foot- 
ball game, vivid scenes of a soccer game, views of a Chapel 
service and some fine panoramas of the School. The second 
film, "Odd Man Out," brought to a conclusion a very suc- 
cessful and entertaining program. 


The programme for the School's 88th Speech Day began 
with the Leaving Service in the Chapel at eleven o'clock. 
The Chapel itself was filled to capacity and those unable 
to find seats inside listened to the service through a loud- 
speaker on the terrace. The processional hymn was "Praise 
to the Lord" and during the service the Choir lead the School 
in singing the psalms "The Lord Is My Shepherd" and "O 
Praise God in His Holiness." The lesson was read by J. R. M. 
Gordon and the service continued with the anthem "O 
come, ye servants of the Lord." After the prayers and 
benediction, the Choir recessed, singing the School leaving 
hymn "And Now With Thanksgiving." 

When the visitors had assembled in the gymnasium, 
Mr. B. M. Osier called upon the Headmaster for his report, 
after which he introduced the Hon. Mr. Justice P. H. Gordon 
of Winnipeg who gave the address. 

After thanking the speaker, the chairman paid tribute 
to Col. J. W. Langmuir in recognition of the many years of 
devoted service he had given to the School, first as Secretary 
of the Governing Body and later as its Chairman. Presenta- 
tions were made both to Col. Langmuir and to Mr. Charles 
Scott who had completed fifty years of teaching, nineteen 
of them as Master and Housemaster at T.C.S. 



Mr. Chairman and other members of the Governing 
Body, Mr. Ketchum and Masters of T.C.S. ; Ladies and 
Gentlemen both young and younger. 

This is one of the crowning honours of a long life. I 
thank you, Sir, for your overly kind introduction and for 
this opportunity to speak to the Boys of my old School. 

It is very seldom that I am given the opportunity of 
speaking to people of my own age. Long, long ago, I deter- 
mined never to grow up. Some of my friends who have seen 
me in a goose pit at five o'clock on a cold stormy morning 
agree that I have succeeded remarkably well in these efforts 
to keep young. 

Now nearly everyone who has addressed the School in 
days gone by has tried to give you something to remember 
all your lives. Some may have succeeded, but I have no 
such ambitions. I shall be quite happy if you remember any- 
thing that I tell you until lunch time and I shall try not to 
delay unduly that happy event. 

I am quite sure that the Editor of the Record will not 
preface his remarks on this my address, if he refers to it 
at all, with the quotation: 

"Conticuere omnes intentique ora tenebant." 

Owing to a number of circumstances I had not much 
time to prepare this address but I have reached the stage 
in life when this is no great handicap as I can best explain 
by telling you a story. 

Nearly every tribe and nation on earth has its own 
story of the creation and that of the Chinese is as good as 
any of them. According to a Chinese story God first created 
the heavens and the earth, the trees and the flowers and 
then created man. When man awoke and found himself in 
a beautiful garden he was very pleased with himself and 
asked God what his duties would be and how long he would 
be permitted to enjoy the lovely garden. God told him that 
his duties would be to look after the garden and that he 


should do this for forty years. This seemed very short to 
man and he frankly said so. God then created the ox which 
asked similar questions. God replied that his duties would 
be to help man in the garden. He would be required to 
draw the plough and harrows and tread out the corn and 
that he should do this for twenty years. The ox replied 
that twenty years seemed a very long time to do such heavy 
work and asked God to reduce it to ten. Man then brigh^.ened 
up and said: "Yes, God, you do that and give the other ten 
to me." To this God agreed. He then created the dog which 
asked similar questions. God replied that he was to be the 
guardian of man's children and that he was to bark and 
growl at strangers and animals that tried to get into the 
garden and that he would do this for twenty years. The 
dog immediately said that twenty years was a very long 
time to bark and growl and asked to have it reduced to ten. 
Man again broke in and said: "Yes, God, you do that and 
give the other ten to me." God again agreed. The monkey 
was the next created and he too asked similar questions. 
God told the monkey that he was to have no duties; that 
he was to be the embodiment of pleasure. All he would have 
to do was to swing in the trees and chatter to his heart's 
content and that he would do that for twenty years. The 
monkey immediately protested that this was too long and 
asked that it be reduced to ten. Again man broke in with 
a similar request. God was very reluctant to give man any 
further time but at last he agreed but said that was all man 
was to have. That is why, say the Chinese, man enjoyis life 
until he is forty; between forty and fifty he works liJ.e an 
ox; between fifty and sixty he growls like a dog and be- 
tween sixty and seventy he just chatters like a monljey. 

The Chairman and the Headmaster, knowing full well 
that my last ten year period was fast running out thought 
it would not be hard for me to chatter to you for a few 

Now some of you have won very fine prizes. Indeed 
some of you have won many. I have a word for those who 


tried their best and failed. I was often in your ranks. Never 
be discouraged. It is not the quarry but the chase that 
counts. Looking back over my long life I can say most 
definitely that the boys who made the great men were not 
always the prize-winners at school. The real crowns of life 
fall to those who never give up trying. The great ;irt in 
learning is to undertake a little at a time. It is like charging 
a battery. You have to do it in small doses. Parkman, the 
great historian, suffered so greatly from his eyes that he 
could only read or write for about five minutes at a time. 
Yet, see what a monument he left to the world. As the 
ancient writer of Proverbs says: 

"Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall 
stand before kings." 

And Addison says: 

"If you wish success in life, make perseverance your 
bosom friend, experience your wise counsellor, caution your 
elder brother, and hope your guardian genius." 

But remember it is the effort that counts. As Addison says 
again : 

"Tis not in mortals to command success. 
But we'll do more, Sempronius, we'll deserve it." 

Life, whether it be long or short, is made up of moments, 
none of which should be wasted. So keep on trying. 

One message that I should like to give the Boys, who 
by the end of the term will be "Old Boys," is the marvellous 
opportunity of developing the mind and personality by read- 
ing good books. 

In these days of the radio and television, we are too 
apt to accept the trash that is on the air rather than ex- 
pend the necessary energy to read a good book. No enter- 
tainment is so inexpensive as reading and no pleasure so 
enduring. It may be a little difficult to acquire the habit at 
first, but once attained you are set for life. 

It was all very well for Bacon to say in his day: "Read 
much but few books," but a lot of histories and biographies 


have been written since his day. It is said that Bacon knew 
all the knowledge that the world had amassed up to his 
time. No one living can say that today, although some 
people seem to think that they do. 

Dr. Symonds, one of our headmasters, who taught me 
History and English, stressed the necessity of learning the 
great landmarks of history so that when reading that sub- 
ject and biography you can picture to yourself the stage on 
which the great drama of life was played. He had the happy 
faculty of linking dates, people and places together in such 
a way that they were very easily remembered. For instance, 
he taught me that Alexander the Great founded Alexandria 
in 331 B.C. and Constantine the Great founded Constan- 
tinople in 331 A.D. I have him to thank that I can still give 
you the Kings and Queens of England in their proper order 
because I learnt it in a rhyme. 

Although one should know something of the classics 
in fiction, the books from which you will get the most benefit 
are histories and biographies. In these great works you 
will learn how the game of life was played by the best 

But these suggestions are also of value to the younger 
boys. When I was a small boy, I read and re-read Charles 
Kingsley's book "The Heroes" and later loved Plutarch's 
Lives of the Ancients. I still think they are good reading. 

If you wish to realize the antiquity of book-writing you 
should read a translation of the oldest book that has come 
down to us: "The Precepts of Ptah-Hotep written about 
2,500 B.C. A copy is in the National Library of France, 
written on a roll of papyrus twenty-seven feet long by five 
feet wide. 

It is worth remembering that these assets are those 
which no government can take from you and if properly 
used you can pass them on to your children without paying 
a gift tax. 

There is another message that I should like to leave 
with you. 


When I was a boy on the prairies there were no roads 
such as you know in the East. In fact we did not use the 
word "road" at all. We always spoke of "trails." These 
wandered over the prairie around bushes and sloughs, 
usually keeping to the higher ground. In winter and during 
stormy weather when the stars could not be seen it was 
very easy to lose the trail. On such occasions farmers and 
ranchers living near the trails always put a lamp in their 
windows which could be seen from the trails. In those early 
days I lived with my widowed Mother on the outskirts of 
the little town of Qu'Appelle and as the trail leading to the 
settlements north-west of town passed our home my Mother 
always put a lamp in the north window. This may seem odd 
to you but I remember very well when we found the body 
of a man who had been lost and frozen to death only about 
three hundred yards from our home. 

\Vhen I was fourteen years old, the year before my 
shooting accident, and the year before I came to T.C.S. I 
was out hunting with my elder brother in late October. We 
were driving a pony in a vehicle known as a "buckboard" 
and were about twenty miles from home. As a storm came 
on in the evening when we had intended to drive home we 
waited until daybreak the next morning. There had been 
a heavy fall of snow in the night and we had difficulty 
getting out of the deep valley where we had hunted. When 
we reached the prairie we found we must face a fierce bliz- 
zard from the north-west. In the early afternoon we realized 
that we were lost. The pony was getting exhausted and 
the country was strange. My Brother got out and led the 
pony into the teeth of the storm for some miles. As night 
began to fall our only thought was to find some bush where 
we might start a fire to survive until morning. While look- 
ing for this we ran into a small haystack and knew some 
house must be near. We left the pony in the shelter of the 
haystack and began looking for the house. Only those who 
have gone through such an experience can know what it 
means to see a lamp in a window. We found one in a sod 


shanty where a bachelor homesteader was living. That little 
shanty without a floor and only a hay roof meant life to us. 
It gave us shelter from the storm, dry clothes, food, rest 
and companionship. That night we would not have traded 
that shanty for the title deeds to Buckingham Palace. I 
could tell you thrilling stories of how a lamp in a window 
has been the means of saving many people who would have 
perished in the storm. 

Now the eyes have been aptly called the "windows of 
the soul" and I want you to put "a lamp in your windows." 
There are many lamps that you can put there which will 
help people to keep to the trail or guide them back to it 
if lost. 

The first lamp I suggest is that of "Courage." It is one 
virtue that is older than civilization. It is, above all the 
virtues, infectious. In war or other disaster, the man with 
courage is able to rally those around him and united they 
meet the threatened danger. I am sure every boy here has 
either seen or heard of a game being won by the courage 
and determination of a few boys who refused to be beaten. 
It is well said that "courage is generosity of the highest 
order" as a man gives of himself. If it had not been for 
the courage and generosity of the late Mr. Britton Osier 
in rallying the Old Boys of the School in our time of financial 
crisis it is almost certain that we should not be here to- 
day. I have often thought how much T.C.S. owes to the 
whole Osier Family. 

There is still another lamp that you can put in your 
window, and that is the lamp of Justice or Fairplay. Justice 
is "truth in action" and is the very foundation of all social 
life. Of all the definitions of "justice" that I have read, and 
it has been my business to study it in the abstract as well 
as the concrete, I think George Eliot has best expressed it. 
She says: 

"Who shall put his finger on the work of justice, and 
say, 'It is there'? Justice is like the Kingdom of God; it 
is not without us as a fact ; it is within us as a great yearn- 

24 TRINITY colj:.ege school record 

I know of no virture that will equip a man better for the 
battle of life than a highly developed sense of fairplay. 
One of the main objects of interschool games is the develop- 
ment of this virtue. Far better to lose a game than win it 
unfairly. In a boarding school where you have a constant 
flow of new-boys, the old-boys in the school can ruin its 
good name by treating the new-boys unfairly. I have known 
old-boys who bore a grudge against their school for years 
because they had been unfairly treated as new-boys; and 
yet, I have never met one who resented the ordinary dis- 
cipline which new-boys should expect to undergo so that 
they will fit neatly into the family life of the school. What 
would you feel like if you were one of a group of boys who 
"picked on" a new-boy until in desperation he ran away 
from school? Always be fair to them. 

There is of course the brighter lamp of Kindness. I 
have always thought of Kindness as Justice plus a smile. 
It is the keystone of the arch of Christian Character. It 
is the most effective virtue when dealing with our fellow- 
men. The greatest of bards has said: 

What thou wilt, 
Thou shalt rather enforce it with thy smile, 
Than hew to't with thy sword." 

There is yet another lamp, and I use the word in its 
very widest sense, it is that of Temperance. It is the gover- 
nor of human actions. Aristotle who was one of the greatest 
minds ever born on earth, laid down the course of a perfect 
life as the mean between two extremes. Excesses of any 
kind dim all your lamps. The predominance of sport over 
scholarship has spoilt many promising young lives. I have 
often told those in the teaching profession, including our 
Headmaster, that when I was running a law office and had 
over fifty employees I could always hire a good football or 
hockey player for a third of the sum that I had to pay to a 
scholar and we both profited by the transaction. 

I could tell you many other lamps that you might put 
in your window but after all, T.C.S. aims at giving you a 


lamp that shines farther and brighter and with a steadier 
beam that any of those mentioned because it embraces them 
all. This is the lamp of Christian Character and it is the 
only lamp to take with you into the next world. 

But I must close. To those who are leaving School to 
embark on wider and stormier seas, I say "Bon Voyage." 
May your bark be tight and strong; your compass true; 
your companions during your voyage men of high ideals; 
may your bark safely ride out the storms, as meet them 
you surely will and may you in the end reach the haven of 
your highest ambition. 

Never forget the old School and the Masters who have 
done so much to equip you for your voyage; and always 
remember our motto: "Beati mundo corde." 

I trust that you will have the serenity to endure the 
things that you cannot change and the courage to change 
the things that you can but above all the wisdom to know 
the difference. 

The world needs models rather than critics and the 
direction of the development of the mind is more important 
than its progress. After all that I have said about adorn- 
ing the mind with facts and figures, this is not the object 
in seeking a Christian education. Its chief function is to 
direct the will. 

To all of you I give two stanzas of John Drinkwater's 
prayer : 

"Grant us the will to fashion as we feel. 
Grant us the strength to labour as we know, 
Grant us the purpose, ribbed and edged with steel, 
To strike the blow. 

Knowledge we ask not, — knowledge Thou hast lent, 
But, Lord, the will — there lies our bitter need, 
Give us to build above the deep intent 
The deed, the deed." 

And lastly: "Put a lamp in your window." 



Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen; 

Speech Days at T.C.S. have been carried on now for 
eighty-eight years and we are always glad to see the parents 
of many boys and other School friends on these occasions. 
I remember my mother telling me that she and her parents 
and family used to drive by horse and carriage to Port Hope 
from Uxbridge, 60 miles away, for Speech Day; they left 
one day, spent the night en route, sometimes camping in a 
hay field, and arrived the next day in time for the Chapel 
service. The service lasted an hour and a half, then there 
was lunch in the School Hall, and at two-thirty the speeches 
began and the prizegiving took place. They would plan to 
get away about five-thirty- Those were spacious days when 
everyone seemed to have all the time in the world — life 
moved at a walk or sometimes at a trot; now we are kept 
on the double by the fast and pressing pace around us; like 
Alice, we have to go as fast as we can to stay where we 
are, and calm and quiet, handmaid of meditation, must most 
often come from within. 

All this is a roundabout prelude to saying that we have 
had another full and busy year at T.C.S. , trying to com- 
press into eight months more than used to be planned for 
nine or ten months; much has been attempted and we have 
been very happy so far at most of the results — in August 
we should know if the most important part of our work has 
been well and truly done, the preparation for Upper School 
or Honor Matriculation examinations. 

It is a real pleasure to have Judge Gordon here again. 
The Chairman will tell you more about him, but may I say 
that no School ever had a more loyal Old Boy, and few Old 
Boys have been so widely recognized as possessing gifts of 
very real distinction which have been given so often for the 
benefit of his fellow men. 

May I also say a word of greeting to Bishop Luxton; 
he is not an Old Boy but he has sent his sons to this School

and he is always ready to help us in any way he can. We 
know what wonderful work he has done in the Church and 
what a splendid lead he is giving in his diocese of Huron 
and indeed often in the whole of Canada. 

I have to record the loss of three Governors of the 
School and another senior Old Boy. Mr. Justice R. M. 
Dennistoun was the elder statesman on our Board and only 
last September he completed fifty years as a Governor, the 
same month in which he and Mrs. Dennistoun celebrated 
their sixtieth wedding anniversary. His was a household 
and deeply respected name in Winnipeg and the West and 
his service to his country in so many ways will long be 
remembered. The Hon. R. C. Matthews was Minister of 
National Revenue for several years and a leading member 
of the House of Commons; as a Governor of the School no 
one could have been more thoughtful or generous and some 
day many boys will be enabled to come to T.C.S- through his 
benefaction, a most liberal one. He made many valuable 
gifts to his church and various charitable endeavours; he 
was always keenly interested in cricket, encouraging the 
game in every way and once took a team to England for a 
series of matches. Few men have gone to more pains to 
help others or to add to the beauty and enjoyment of life. 
C. G. McCullagh was known internationally as the brilliant 
publisher of the Globe and Mail ; as a Governor of the School 
he gave his talents and time and substance without stint. 
His many remarkable accomplishments are too well known 
to need repeating. We shall always be in his debt, partic- 
ularly for the Peter Campbell Memorial Rink which has 
proved such a boon to all the boys and to many in the town. 
Mr. John Labatt was one of the most public spirited of men, 
and with his brother, Hugh, he made countless gifts to his 
home city of London and supported liberally all worthwhile 
community efforts. He was ever ready to help the School 
in any way he could and we shall always remember the visits 
he paid us and the thoughtful interest he showed in all our 


This has been another most satisfactory year; the 
senior boys, Head Prefect, Prefects, House Prefects, House 
Officers and Sixth Form boys have won golden opinions for 
their whole-hearted co-operation in all our endeavours and 
the fine sense of responsibility most of them have shown. 
Having recently seen boys at schools in three other countries 
I am more than ever convinced that this School, and indeed 
this country, is most fortunate in having young men en- 
dowed with such fine qualities; they would stand out in any 

An Old Boy, D. C. McDonald, has been awarded the 
Rhodes Scholarship for Alberta and we give him our most 
sincere congratulations. McDonald took a leading part in 
the scholastic life of the School between 1946 and 1949 and 
he has continued and expanded his interests at the Univer- 
sity of Alberta. Six Old Boys have now been awarded 
Rhodes Scholarships in six years, a truly remarkable achieve- 
ment and one which, I am told, has never been duplicated 
and probably never will be- You will see from your prize 
lists that other Old Boys have won honours at various 
universities; altogether, T.CS. boys have now won 133 uni- 
versity scholarships in nineteen years, and that number 
does not include prizes and other distinctions. 

Since January we have been experimenting with a new 
time table, one-hour classes instead of the usual forty 
minutes. The plan seems to be working well. Once again 
we are indebted to the members of the Staff for their 
devotion to the best interests of the boys and the School. 
We are very fortunate to have fourteen masters who have 
been at the School for ten years or more, and Messrs. Morris, 
Lewis, Batt, Scott, Humble, Tottenham, Armstrong and 
Cohu have been with us more than fifteen years, some more 
than twice that length of time. Their experience and coun- 
sel, coupled with their skill, faithfulness and untiring perse- 
verance are invaluable in a School such as this and worth 
their weight in gold. While Mrs. Ketchum and I were abroad 
this spring Mr. Lewis acted as Headmaster and Mr. Dale, 


as assistant to the Headmaster, did much of the office work. 
One cannot speak too highly of the way Mr. Lewis carried 
out his added responsibilities without any relief from a 
heavy teaching load; everyone spoke in the highest terms 
of him in his new capacity, as I knew they would, and Mrs. 
Lewis, of course, fulfilled perfectly her part as hostess. As 
assistant to me Mr. Dale is helping in so many ways and I 
look forward to getting back into the classrooms next year. 
While we were in England I had a privilege and pleasure 
which can have fallen to the lot of very few Headmasters 
outside England: one of my former boys, Mr. E. H. C. 
Leather, invited us to lunch in the House of Commons and 
afterwards we listened to him make a very good speech in 
the House- Though interrupted by some able members of 
th Labour Party he carried his point very well. We found 
that he is highly regarded as a Parliamentarian in England 
and a young Conservative who will carry more and more 
responsibility as the years go by. The Old Boys gave a very 
happy dinner in London and some twenty-five were present 
under the Chairmanship of Brigadier Brian Archibald. 

I am sorry to say that seeral masters are leaving us 
this year for posts of more responsibility in colleges of 
higher learning. Mr. Arthur Knight has been appointed to 
the staff of the Ryerson Institute of Technology in To- 
ronto; Mr. Marigold, who has qualified for his Doctorate of 
Philosophy, has been appointed assistant professor of 
German at the University of Virginia, and Mr. Willmer has 
won a fellowship at the University of Indiana. Mr. Knight 
has been with us for eight years and has proved himself to 
be an excellent mathematics teacher; the individual help 
he has given many boys has been most valuable. Mr. Mari- 
gold and Mr. Willmer have been here only one year but they 
succeeded in making their mark in that short time. Mr. 
Dennys Morris, who has done such good work in the Junior 
School for nine years, is leaving to accept a post in Port 
Credit and to qualify for his degree from Western. 


We are going to miss ail tiiese masters and we thank 
tliem deeply for the invaluable help they have given to 
many boys. 

I know that several other Senior School masters have 
been offered attractive posts elsewhere involving what must 
be considered promotions, but I am very glad and relieved 
to say that they have decided to stay at T.C.S. I don't 
particularly enjoy these raids on our staff, especially when 
they come late in the year, but I suppose people elsewhere 
are beginning to realize the calibre of our masters, and 
doubtless we should consider their interest in our staff as 
an indirect compliment to T.C.S. 

While on the subject of masters, I should like to mention 
the splendid work Mr. Bishop has done as Head of the 
French Department. Teaching has expanded in various 
ways under his direction and though many boys do not seem 
to have been born with a French accent I know his efforts 
and those of his assistants will eventually blossom — perhaps 
into the fleur de lis. 

Mr. Humble has again been most valuable as Head of 
the English department, master in charge of the School 
magazine. The Record, master in charge of our Guidance 
programme, and coach of the Hockey Team — a very heavy 
programme. Mr. Angus Scott, who joined us last Septem- 
ber, has made an excellent beginning here and everyone was 
lyrical about his production of the School Play. Mr. Key's 
Art Group painted first rate sets for the plays and the 
decorations they made for the Dance were, according to 
those present, simply superb, quite the best ever. Mr, Batt 
and Mr. Armstrong have carried on their department ex- 
tremely well; the Cadet Corps acquitted themselves better 
than ever before and Mr. Armstrong's Gym Team won 
many triumphs. Phippen, the Captain, is the best gymnast 
we have ever had, and we think he is the best any School 
has ever seen. He is the Eastern Canada Junior Champion 
and he won the Eastern Canadian Senior Championship on 
the Parallel Bars. His team won all its meets with other 


schools, and though a junior team, we came third in the 
Eastern Canadian Open Competition. In addition to their 
own excellent work, Phippen, Blackburn, Burns and Leslie 
have coached numerous beginners with the result that the 
standard of work in the Gym has been higher than ever 

Gordon won his Air Cadet Wings last summer and 
Binnie and Colbourne ii have been selected for the course 
this summer. Anstis has qualified for a leadership course 
with the R.C.AF. at Camp Borden. McCaughey has once 
again trained the band, which has won much praise. The 
trumpeters have been especially good. 

I wish to mention four ladies on the Staff who are 
invaluable to the School. Mrs. Moore has taught the young- 
est boys in the Junior School for eleven years and we can 
not imagine a better person in that position; Mrs. Wilkin 
has been the dietitian for many years and has recently been 
in charge of the meals in both schools. It is an arduous and 
trying task, but she is always ready for any emergency — 
nothing seems to upset her, and nothing is too much trouble. 
Mrs. Taylor does yeoman's work in the Bursar's office day 
by day and is invaluable in that capacity; Miss Wilkin has 
been Senior School Matron since the war and carries out 
her responsibihties extremely well. She has done wonders 
in costuming boys for plays, and in helping with our dances 
and all other gatherings. We are much indebted to these 
members of the distaff side of our life. 

There are no triumphs to record in athletics this year 
except those already mentioned in Gym and the victory of 
the Hockey Team in the Lawrenceville Tournament at 
Princeton last New Year's. It was the first time a Canadian 
team had been invited to enter this tournament and our 
boys not only played well but they made an extremely good 
impression in every other way. dePencier, the Captain, was 
judged the best player in the tournament by the coaches 
and oflficials. I am glad to say that T.C.S. has been invited 
to send a team again next year- In other sports our boys 


did their best and proved they were good sportsmen, but 
though they won many games no team was undefeated. 
Anthony Lafleur, the Captain of our Squash Team, won the 
Ontario Junior Championship; he was defeated in the Cana- 
dian Junior Finals by a young Old Boy, C. P. R. L. Slater. 

The athletic triumph this year which won such wide 
comment was that of an Old Boy. For the first time in 
history a Canadian won the U.S. Open Amateur Squash 
Championship, and that Canadian was Ernest Howard. He 
also won the Canadian Open and therefore reached a squash 
pinnacle never before attained by a Canadian — he might 
be called the Champion of North America in Squash. We 
are proud to know he began his career in our courts under 
the watchful eye of Mr. Lewis. 

The Choir has been most faithful and has rendered 
much new music extremely well; we feel the Senior Choir 
is one of the very best we have ever had. We all ov/e a debt 
to the forty members of the Choir and Mr. Cohu for the 
important part they play in our Chapel services. 

Among the numerous gifts we have received this year 
may I mention a beautiful oriental rug given by Mrs. E. F. 
Howard of New York, a lovely new festival frontal and 
kneelers for the Chapel given by the Ladies' Guild, a gen- 
erous donation to a fund from which masters' pensions will 
be supplemented given by Dr. and Mrs. Marshall of Ed- 
monton, the Bible used by WiUiam Osier at TC.S., Weston, 
in 1866 given by Mrs. Britton Osier, and a television set sent 
on loan by the Old Boys of Montreal but which they expect 
to give us. 

Dr. Wilder Penfield, world fam^ous in the field of medi- 
cine and especially neurology, and a Governor of the School 
for many years, has been awarded the Order of Merit by 
Her Majesty the Queen. This order is the highest civilian 
award, restricted to 24 members of the Commonwealth, and 
all who know Dr. Penfield glow with pride at his having 
been chosen for this exceptional honour, realizing full well 
how richly he deserves it. So many of us read into his 


character and personality and accomplishments the attri- 
butes which made our first Head Boy, Sir William Osier, so 
justly renowned. 

The T.C.S. Ladies' Guild has now completed fifty years 
of service to the School and no words of mine can begin to 
measure all they have done for us and especially for our 
Chapel over the years. All the Presidents, Mrs. E. B. Osier, 
Mrs. WiHiam Ince, Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin, Mrs. George 
Cartwright, Mrs. Britton Osier, Mrs. George Kirkpatrick, 
Mrs. Laurence Grout, Mrs. B- M. Osier and now Mrs. N. O. 
Seagram, with their executives, have given much time and 
thought to the needs of the School and their touch has been 
seen and felt in so many ways in which a woman excells. 
We shall always be indebted to the Guild and its officers. 

Mrs. E. G. M. Cape of Montreal has founded a bursary, 
to be known as the Smith-Cape Bursary, to be given to a 
boy "on the basis of all-round characteristics of which citi- 
zenship shall be one". Mrs. Cape is the daughter of a former 
T.C.S. boy, her son is an Old Boy, and her grandsons are 
now at the School. Her grandsons are the first great-grand- 
sons of an Old Boy to enter T.C.S. 

Our Sustaining Fund has gone steadily forward without 
any publicity or intense campaign. At this time last year 
it had just started; to-day, it seems that we can count on 
$120,000 coming to the School within a few years for this 
purpose, and we hope to reach the sum of $150,000 or more 
before the end of the year. The object is to use only income 
for vital needs, including bursaries and pensions, but if we 
have to dip into the capital at any time we shall do our 
utmost to replace it without delay. It is generally felt that 
a School like T.C.S. must have some reserve of this nature. 
We are again full of gratitude to Mr. Charles Burns and his 
leading assistants for all they have done to give the School 
this much needed help; we hope that the smaller donations 
from hundreds of Old Boys and other friends will soon 
begin to add materially to the total sum. 


During the summer we are going to convert the old 
Chapel into a readig room and library, giving considerably 
more space, and providing five quiet study and reference 
rooms, a much needed improvement in our facilities. And 
here may I say how fortunate we are to have Mr. and Mrs. 
Dening in charge of the library; they have brought it to a 
state of almost perfection. The basement of the new Chapel 
v/ill be turned into an assembly room. We are also hoping 
to add a wing to the kitchen block, giving us more storage 
space and particularly more refrigerated rooms. 

May I here say how much we owe to the Chairman of 
the Governing Body, Mr. B. M. Osier, and the Secretary, 
Mr. S. B. Saunders. Both are extremely busy men, but they 
constantly find many hours a week to give out of their kind- 
ness to School affairs. No School of this nature can possibly 
survive the economies of these days without the care and 
advice of most able men; we have been blest in this rspect 
in the past, and under our present Chairman and Secretary 
and members of the Board we continue to be blest. I should 
like here to welcome three new members of the Governing 
Body, Brigadier I. H. Cumberland, G. E. Phipps, and A. F. 
Mewburn; they will strengthen our ranks. 

The Memorial Entrance Scholarships have this year 
been won by two boys at Selwyn House School, Montreal, 
P. A. Creery, who was awarded the Sir William Osier Schol- 
arship, and M. A. Meighen, who was awarded the Dyce 
Saunders Scholarship. They did exceptionally well and we 
congratulate them and their School. 

The boys who are leaving us this year are some of the 
best we have ever known ; they have qualities and attributes 
and characteristics which will take them anywhere they 
want to go and we feel that their hearts and minds are set 
on the right path and the right goal. With their growing 
sense of responsibility, coupled with a developing sense of 
service, all the more incumbent on them because of their 
privileges, added to their young ideals and their spiritual 
strength, no obstacle, no difficulty can stop them from pull- 


ing their own weight and perhaps that of the other fellow 
too. In that way they will find real happiness within them- 
selves and give it to others. 

It seems fitting that in this week of the Coronation, so 
vivid in all our hearts and minds, a few words should be 
quoted from addresses recently made by our young Queen 
and her husband. Speaking to the British Association for 
the Advancement of Science, Prince Philip said: "The in- 
strument of scientific knowledge in our hands is growing 
more powerful every day. Indeed it has reached a point 
where we can either set the world free from drudgery, fear, 
hunger and pestilence, or obliterate life itself. It is clearly 
our duty as citizens to see that science is used for the benefit 
of mankind. For of what use is science if man does not 
survive?" Of leadership. Prince Philip said, "The present 
leaders will not always be with us and the time will come 
when members of the new generation will have to take their 
place. In peace and in war the followers, too, have a great 
contribution to make to their country and to the cause of 
peace in the world generally. The ideal that my wife and I 
have set before us is to make the utmost use of the special 
opportunities we have to try to bring home to our generation 
the full importance of that contribution and of the effort, 
both at work and at play, that is required of us." 

And of international relations Queen Elizabeth said, in 
speaking to the French, "If we are to escape destruction 
we must work for the break-down of prejudices born of 
narrow-minded nationalism. All men who wish to preserve 
the values, for which you and we have fought two wars side 
by side, must look well beyond their frontiers. No country 
is morally self-sufiTicient any more than it is economically 
self supporting. Therefore we must be ready to throw into 
a common pool the gifts and virtues which are our most 
cherished heritage." 

Those are wise words and if we bear them in mind and 
act upon them we shall grow in stature and make the world 
a better place. 


To the boys who are leaving we say Bon Voyage, there 
will be rough seas and calm seas, but you have the ability 
and the equipment to steer a straight course and reach the 
goal you set for yourselves. May you always keep your 
hand on the tiller, and good fortune be with you.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.'' 
Thus states the Golden Rule, one of the most misquoted 
proverbs in this modern age. 

Today the international situation is a tense one, caused 
by the differences in policy of certain countries in this world. 
On one side is Russia and those countries under her tyran- 
nical and unfair government, adopting a communistic policy. 
On the other side, are those freedom-loving countries which 
follow a capitalistic system of government, and strive to 
reach a compromise between those two completely different 
methods of government. 

Russia covers one-sixth of the world's land surface, yet 
she is barred off by the Iron Curtain and natural boundaries, 
which prevent any link between their people and ours, that 
would enable the western world to understand the ordinary 
Russian a little more fully. Meanwhile, the allied countries, 
are allowing Russian representatives to spread communistic 
propaganda through the United Nations. 

Recently, the United States made a proposal at the 
United Nations to all countries, the offer being extended 
especially to the Russians and stating that there should be 
a pooling of all weapons and scientists in each country. The 
weapons would be used to arm a United Army consisting 
of a number of soldiers proportional to the size and strength 


of the country; similarly the scientists would work together 
as an international group. To make sure that no country 
was withholding or concealing any scientific knowledge or 
any arms, an international board would be elected to in- 
vestigate each country. Both of these proposals were turned 
down by the Russians. Why? Is it the old Russian suspicion 
of a foreigner, or are they so much further advanced in 
scientific research that they refuse to submit to any in- 
vestigation by a committee which might uncover this 
knowledge ? 

In either case, the Russians must be in a strong position 
to flout the strength of the west in foreign relations. Every- 
where communism is spreading; it has to be stamped out 
before we are embroiled in World War III. Such a war could 
be averted if each country was willing to sacrifice a little 
for the general cause but today the main problem in our 
capitalistic system is that each of us is too concerned in 
getting ahead, greedy and selfish for more power. If the 
leaders of countries learnt the meaning of the Golden Rule, 
they might realize the importance of basing their policy on 
a giving rather than a taking basis, so that another dis- 
astrous war might be prevented. 

Suppose World War III did break out in the form of a 
communist revolt taking place in the allied countries. This 
is quite possible. In 1917, two revolutions occurred in Russia ; 
these revolutions marked the beginning of the communist 
regime in Russia. They well might be the beginning of the 
end for the Western World, unless we wake up and realize 
how grave the situation is, before it is too late. 

The great Roman Empire was defeated by barbarians. 
Even Britain, proud of her record in war and peace, was 
nearly obliterated in the period between 1914 and 1944, after 
sustaining two serious wars. Both of these countries were 
dominant politically, economically, and in foreign affairs, 
yet as soon as they relaxed their sovereignty, barbarians 
exhausted their countries to the point of depression and 
ruin. The key to our resistance to the Russians today is the 


United States, but it too is slowly decaying and crumbling 
at the roots. Government officials are corrupt and a few 
people have too much. The barbaric Russians could easily 
defeat the United States in a communistic revolution, if 
history repeats itself as it has done time and time again in 
the past. Although the resistance to communism is stronger 
nov/, every day the Marxist doctrine grows more powerful 
and converts many people to communism. 

If the communists do obtain control of our country, we 
will have little chance against their cruel and barbarous 
government. The rich will become poor; the wise will be- 
come ignorant; the mighty will be humbled. Perhaps it is 
time for each one of us to observe more closely the essence 
of the Golden Rule. In all daily affairs, in sports, in business, 
at home, in politics, in our own opinions, a little bit more 
self-sacrifice for the next fellow, might have a very big 
meaning in changing the international situation from war 
to peace. 

At this point, it should be emphasized that self-sacrifice 
is only the solution to conflict between the Western coun- 
tries, for Russia has refused such proposals made by Roose- 
velt in his "Good Neighbour Policy;" similarly it has refused 
to sacrifice anything, when all our countries are willing to 
do so. If in ten years the Russians have not led us into war 
over economic difficulties, they will never conquer us. Over 
and over again in history, in the long run, only free institu- 
tions have survived; tyrannies have fallen. As has hap- 
pened in countless other cases, the democratic system, in 
the end, will triumph over communism — still, before this 
can be accomplished concord has to be established in our 
own part of the world. The only answer to this is the Golden 
Rule; in the end, communism will be conquered by neither 
force nor war, but by self-sacrifice on an international scale.

What is art? Perhaps it can be described as the ex- 
pression of one's feelings in material form. With regard to 
the branches of art known as painting and sculpture, this 
definition is easily seen; but what a difference there is be- 
tween the art of yesterday and that of today. 

Thousands of years ago the caveman left drawings and 
inscriptions on the walls of his dwellings, which, crude 
though they were, gave modern men a good idea of the life 
which he led. The great painters of the Renaissance, such 
as Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt left their contributions 
as examples of the great "revival period" in which they 
lived. But what of today? 

The artists of today may be divided into three classes, 
which I shall call Conservative, Modern Conservative, and 
Modern. First we have the Conservative, who goes to some 
spot where he finds the type of scene which he intends to 
portray and paints it as it appears before him. He produces 
a reproduction of a scene which, perhaps, he would like 
others to see. The Modern Conservative may go to a similar 
spot and, wishing to bring out certain aspects of the scene, 
may exaggerate these slightly in order to put them before 
the viewers of his work. And now we come to the Modern. 
As regards the expression of the times he is, in my opinion, 
the true artist. To take a common illustration, we see a 
painting hanging on the wall of an art gallery. "What is 
it?" we say. From a distance it looks like a realistic picture 
of a sizzling plate of bacon and eggs. On examining the 
title we read, "Sunset over Lake Blank" or some similar 
epithet. Shrugging our shoulders we move on. Suddenly a 
colourful mass of lines and blobs confronts us. There is no 
title on this so we take the liberty of giving it one. Before 
we do so, however, we try to imagine what conditions caused 
the creation of this monstrosity. 

We might call the painting of the sunset modern, but 
what do we mean by this? This question may be answered 
by the second picture which appears to be a confused mass.

But the second painting, like the first, is modern. Both 
pictures are impressions of twentieth century artists. The 
world today certainly is what it is depicted to be by such 
paintings. It is a world of complex machines and tangled 
political problems. Man is the slave of machinery. Wherever 
he goes he is confronted by cogs and wheels, wires and more 
wires. More and more effective methods of destruction are 
being thought up and produced each day. Due credit, how- 
ever, must be given to the beneficial machines. Many of 
these prolong our life, carry us to and fro, and generally 
save us much of the labour which our forefathers had to 
endure. Even these, however, are so intricate that they are 
well portrayed by the mazelike confused mess. 

Now for our title; what is it to be? Perhaps we might 
call it "Progress in the Twentieth Century." There on the 
wall hangs the painting, proud and belligerent — challenging 
its viewers to criticize it. The twentieth century will go 
down in history as an age of war and an age of progress. 
It is such an intricate century, so full of conflicting ideas 
and actions, that it will have to go by another name. 
Thousands of years from now archaeologists will unearth 
a buried city of the past. They will excavate a museum or 
an art gallery. In the decayed ruin they will find a relic 
of the past — a painting entitled, "Progress in the Twentieth 
Century." A new name will have been found for this, our 
modern age. It will be called, "The Age of Confusion."

Motionless and still — the crystal pool, 
Offering within it's mystic depths 
A flawless picture of the verdant bank 
Which gently slopes towards it from above; 
Where vari-coloured mosses grow and flowers 
Tumble gaily from the meadow beyond 
To gather reverently around the pool 


As if afraid to break the sacred quiet. 

And on the peaceful surface by the bank 

A lily floats in slender loveliness 

Upon a raft of fragile greenery. 

Suddenly a petal falls — noiselessly, 

And gently kisses the surface of the pool 

And where the scented fragment comes to rest 

Some little ripples form and gaily ride 

In ever widening circles to the shore. 

The mirror is disturbed and now I see 

Confused reflections, void and meaningless, 

But as the calm surges softly back again 

I saw not the image of a lovely flower 

Nor yet again the picture of a pearl. 

For what I see would put them all to shame. 

I turned around and saw you standing there.

The best example we have in our modern generation 
of human sacrifice is the sacrifice of Franklin Delano Roose- 
velt. This great man led our neighbour nation to the south 
out of the depths and gloom of the depression, through the 
crisis of the following pre-war years, through the even 
more critical years of the war, to victory and to the role 
of the leading nation of the world. He paid the price for 
accomplishing this great feat with his life. 

It was in 1932 that Roosevelt first stepped into the lime- 
light of the United States of America. In this year, in the 
midst of the depression, he first accepted the call of the 
Democratic party to be their candidate for the election; in 
this same year he first accepted the call of the people of 
the United States of America to be their President. 

His first major work was to relieve the American peo- 
ple from the fear of starvation and gloom which accom- 
panied the depression. This he accomplished by passing 


legislation which became known as the "New Deal," and by 
using oratory to stir the American people, oratory the like 
of which they had never heard before. In March, 1933, he 
inspired the American Nation thus, "First of all, let me 
assert my firm conviction, that the only thing we have to 
fear is . . . fear itself! Nameless, unreasonable, unjustified 
terror which paralyses every effort needed for the return 
to normalcy." 

By 1936 the first term of Roosevelt and his "New Deal" 
was expiring, and against him the Republicans threw the 
irrepressible Alf ("I believe that a man can be a Liberal 
without being a spend thrift") Landon. Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt kept the support and confidence of the American 
people both by his past record, and by his powerful oratory, 
such as his famous speech at Franklin Field in Philadelphia 
on March 4, 1936, when he accepted his party's second 
nomination: "To some generations much is given, from 
others much is expected. This generation of Americans has 
a rendezvous with Destiny." Once again he was swept back 
into power. 

Roosevelt was a pacific man. In many crises before 
the actual outbreak of war, he continually used his influence 
to prevent aggression. An example of this occurred in the 
Sudeten crisis, when Hitler was threatening, despite his con- 
ferences with Chamberlain at Berchtesgaden and Godes- 
burg, to march into Sudetenland. On September 27, 1938, 
Roosevelt asked Mussolini to use his influence to stop Hitler. 
Mussolini conferred with Hitler, and due to this, Hitler 
agreed to another conference with Chamberlain at Munich. 
The outcome of this conference was not what Roosevelt had 
wanted, but neither was it his fault. 

But Roosevelt, though pacific, knew that what was 
worth having was worth fighting for. He believed this of 
democracy. When war was first declared he was unable to 
join in, due to the "America first" movement in his country. 
However, thwarted though he was in his efforts to fight for 
what he believed in, he did everything in his power short 


of war, to aid the cause of Democracy. He himself coined 
the phrase in 1941, "America must be the Great Arsenal of 
Democracy." What is more, throughout all these changes 
he retained the full-fledged support of the American people. 
In 1940, he dared to take an unprecedented step — a step 
which Washington, Adams, Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt 
and all other presidential greats had not dared to take — that 
of running for President for a third term. The American 
people supported his action and in spite of the powerful 
opposition of the Republican, Wendall Wilkie, he was swept 
back into power. 

Roosevelt's path now crossed the path of another great 
man — Winston Churchill. They both recognized each other's 
sterling qualities and a friendship unparalleled in the history 
of any two great statesmen was cemented between them. 
In the early part of the war Roosevelt, unable to help Britain 
except by supplies, inspired the British by messages, such 
as the one to Churchill in 1941. In his own handwriting 
Roosevelt wrote out the following lines from Longfellow, 
and sent it to Churchill: — 

"Sail on, O ship of state, 

Sail on, O union strong and great. 

Humanity with all its fears, with all its hopes 

For future years, 

Lies hanging breathless on thy fate." 
At last on December 7, 1941, Roosevelt was able to 
enter the war. Once again he became the pillar of strength ; 
once again he became the leader of the great American peo- 
ple. He led them from crisis to crisis, from victory to victory. 
Then tragedy, however, caught up with him, and his over- 
work led to cancer. 

In full knowledge of this, and yet undaunted, he con- 
tinued his great work. Ill though he was, he undertook the 
hazardous trip to Cairo, Teheran, and Yalta. Small-minded 
men have laid a great deal of blame on him for the promises 
he made there; but perhaps he was humanitarian enough 
to realize the moral side of the atom bomb, and had decided 


not to use it except for defence. We shall now never know. 

Nevertheless, he returned in time from Yalta to score 
another personal victory in the form of another — his fourth 
— presidential election. It is sad indeed that he was elected 
only to die shortly after. His sacrifice for his native land, 
democracy, and humanity was of the greatest kind. 

One of the most fitting epitaphs was written by a Re- 
publican before he died. It went thus: — "Biting good Re- 
publican nails, we are forced to say that he is the most 
unaccountable president in the history of this nation. Darn 
your smiling old face, we who hate your gaudy guts, salute 
you!" We too, salute him: Roosevelt a great orator, a great 
leader, a great diplomat, a great man.

Suddenly a shriek of anguish breaks the stillness! Is 
it murder? Is it robbery? No, it is just a queer fanatic next 
door who each year grows a garden and at the present 
moment is in the process of doing so. But why the scream? 
As there is a high wall separating us, we cannot discover 
the reason by visual means but we can be sure it has been 
caused by one of the three types of pest which plague every 
gardener. These are the "helpfuls," the "know-it-alls," and 
the "children." What! You have never heard of these 
creatures. Then, I will describe them to you. 

If our neighbour is planting his garden it is likely that 
he is being attacked by one of the species which in its 
efforts to help the gardener by raking, hoeing, etc., steps 
all over the previously planted seeds; or, if the gardener 
is silly enough to allow this creature to plant seeds, spills 
most of a package in one spot. A sub-species of the 'help- 
ful" is the kind which toddles along behind, asking every 
conceivable question, seemingly doing its best to get in the 

But if our friend next door has been lucky enough not 
to have been paid a visit by a, "helpful," and therefore has 


at least planted his garden he is open for an attack by a, 
"know-it-all." This species always waits until the garden 
is planted to make sure it won't be forced to do any work. 
It always ambles in just when the gardener is very proudly 
sitting back surveying his work. The know-it-all imme- 
diately begins to find faults. "Planting a garden so soon? 
Frost coming, kill it all. What are these? Radishes! Never 
known them to grow yet. Look at the rows. Far too close 
together." And so it continues, on and on. A discourse like 
this is enough to make a preacher swear; a poor ordinary 
man must certainly be forgiven for a slight outburst. 

But the most deadly of garden pests is the species 
called "child." This oft-called, "sweet little thing," is liable 
to strike at both planting and harvest time. If it is a hot 
day when the garden is planted, the species "child" likes 
nothing better than to sink inches deep in some nice cool, 
moist earth especially if it is well raked and therefore soft. 
On the other hand, in the country of "children" everything 
is shared equally and fences are just built to climb over. 
So our peace-loving neighbour may have just come out of 
his house and noticed that half a row of carrots and radishes 
have been extracted from the earth and that right now over 
a fence a dirty, muddy-faced member of the species child is 
now feasting. 

So now, before you don the old clothes, straw hat and 
head for the toolshed, think again. Is it worth it?

In August 1951, a major of the U.S.A.F. on loan to the 
U.S.N, as a test pilot, coaxed his Douglas Skyrocket to the 
unheard of speed of 1,238 m.p.h. Just a week later this same 
man piloted the same plane to the never before conceived 
height of 79,000 feet. Both these feats were world records 
in the jfield of aviation. In another part of the country, a 


huge jet bomber took off under the command of an aircrew 
that had been operating together for years, each member 
having thousands of hours of flying time in his respective 
log book. This bomber represented three million man hours 
of technical labour, the electronics within it were worth the 
same amount as the cost of an entire B-29 in 1945 and its 
total cost was close to three and a half million dollars. 
Girded in its bomb-baj'^s was a potential destructive load of 
atomic power equalling that of 3,000 bombers in September 
1944. Further to the west a flight of Thunder jets streaked 
northward to investigate two mysterious blips which had 
appeared only five minutes before on the radar screen at 
McChord Air Force Base in Tacoma, Washington. It was 
this radar screen at Tacoma that gave its observers a picture 
of every aircraft proceeding up or down the Pacific coast 
no matter what natural conditions prevailed from California 
to the Aleutian Islands. These represent the inventions of 

Air power first came into functional being at the be- 
ginning of World War II. Just six years later at the end 
of this war a group of 300 impartial civilians, conducting 
the United States Strategic Bombing Surveys in Europe and 
the Pacific, issued the following two statements: "By the 
beginning of 1945, before the land invasion of the homeland 
itself, Germany was reaching a state of helplessness. Her 
armies were still in the field, but they would have had to 
cease fighting within a few months. Germany was mortally 
wounded and "No nation, however strong, can long survive 
the free exploitation of air weapons over its heartland." We 
must remember that these statements were made without 
taking into consideration the then unknown Atomic bomb. 
The findings of this Survey in Japan also backed up these 
statements. To increase the strength of what has just been 
said, two more quotations may be added. German Field 
Marshal Kesselring stated at the end of the war, "Allied 
air power was the greatest single reason for the German 
defeat," and German Production Minister Albert Speer de- 


Glared, "The war was decided by attacks from the air." The 
sum product of these statements cannot be ignored. 

It is known that these Germans, as well as many others, 
would like to have turned back the clock to Dunkirk where 
they had had the opportunity of destroying the whole British 
fighter force but ignored it, due to lack of knowledge and 
experience in strategic air warfare. Many other opportu- 
nities could be listed concerning the mistakes on both sides 
in the air battle but we had luck on our side, as well as many 
miracles, and the Germans made the decisive mistakes as 
our knowledge of strategic warfare increased. It is through 
these mistakes that we have benefitted in more ways than 
one. Besides winning the war we have now been able to 
accumulate in the Allied Staff Colleges, the experiences in 
that war which have led the strategic warfare students of 
today to determine the principles upon which they feel our 
next all-out war campaign must rely. 

The wars of yesterday have been governed by what the 
modern student calls the surface concept. That is the fight 
between the armies and navies, assisted in the last war by 
the air forces, of two powers striving for strategic ground 
positions. The wars of tomorrow will be governed by the 
air concept. Thus the modern student of strategic warfare 
outlines the principles of the air concept as follows: 

The first and main role of the air forces is to destroy 
the enemy air power in being, and secondly to exploit the 
air over the enemy's heartland with air weapons, thus de- 
stroying the enemy air power in prospect. In carrying out 
these two roles, the airman has two essential credos: only 
air power can defeat air power and when the air situation 
becomes intolerable, the entire military situation is in- 
tolerable. These two facts were obvious in the last world 
war when ground troops found that they were helpless if 
the air over their heads was unprotected. 

In the first role, which is referred to as the air battle, 
the airman is alone in his task. The only aid that the other 
two services can render to him is to exert upon themselves 


self-restraint. They must realize that the holding of essential 
lines of land and sea communications without assistance 
from the air is an absolute must if he hopes to win the 
air battle. We cannot again rely upon miracles to save us 
as they did in the second world war when our air forces 
were divided in the air battle by the needs of the Supreme 
Commanders who were capable of over-riding any complaint 
of the air forces. It must be realized by all services that 
in the air battle the entire strength of the air forces is 
necessary; for if the air battle is lost, all is lost. But, on 
the other hand, if the air battle is won, all things become 

If then, the air forces are capable of defeating the 
enemy's air power in being and do so, they are now able 
to exploit freely the air over the enemy's heartland. The 
air forces now become a mammoth strategic bombing force 
which transports load after load of bombs to destroy the 
enemy's basic industries and resources, thus destroying the 
enemy's air power in prospect and crippling the entire mili- 
tary effort. When this operation is complete the air forces 
become a huge tactical air power devoted to assist the ground 
and sea offensive. 

To complete the exploitation of the enemy's heartland, 
then, both ground and air, we must have a co-operative com- 
bination of air, land and sea power. But it must be re- 
membered that before this can ever take place, the land 
and sea forces must exert self-restraint to the utmost, so 
that all air power can be concentrated in the air battle. If 
these principles are followed, it is felt that, rather than be 
subjected to the free exploitation of its heartland, the enemy 
will soon surrender. 

This air concept is not new to the airman. He has 
realized it since his first experiences in air warfare, but it 
is definitely new and rather startling to all those whose 
interests do not lie in air power. In this fact lies the mis- 
ta.ke of the airman. Since World War II he has, unlike the 
other two services, failed to make known to the public his 


experiences and his knowledge. Thus the public are ignorant 
as to the importance of air power in modern warfare and 
will not support the air force in its programme of expansion. 
The other sad fact concerning air power is that the air 
forces throughout the world form distinguished minorities 
in committees, governments, and generally in politics. These 
air forces then, knowing that their ideals of air concept 
must be recognized by the powers in the surface concept 
to be effective, can only present their case rather than 
impress it. Thus the air forces desire, for the good of their 
country, to become a member of the indistinguishable ma- 
jority. These two facts represent what the airman dreads 
and calls, "The dilemma of air power." 

In the present state of unrest and tension that exists 
between the powers of Communism and Democracy, the 
peaceful existence of humanity is at stake. These two powers 
have been aroused against one another by their political and 
moral beliefs, their headquarters are situated in the U.S.A. 
and in Russia, the armament race has begun and the sore 
spot (Korea) has been enflamed. If there is to be a third 
World War we know that our enemy will be Russia. We 
must therefore be prepared to meet and defeat Russia. 

It was thought after the war that in a war with Russia 
we would be able to ignore the battle in the air and turn 
immediately to the free exploitation of the enemy heartland 
with air weapons. No longer is this the case, as has been 
shown in the skies over Korea. Russian aviation is fast 
becoming the leading power in that field. The late Mr. 
Stalin once indicated to Mr. Churchill that he was aware 
of the importance of the air concept. We must realize that 
our Sabres are downing Migs only because of the superior 
training of the American pilots but this situation will not 
last long. Also we must remember that the Red air forces 
compared to ours are in the same ratio as to their armies 
are to ours. It becomes imperative, therefore, that if we 
are to present a formidable defence against Communism, we 
must recognize the value of the air concept and prepare for 



the greatest air battle in the history of the world. 

To overcome this threat to our peace and to democracy, 
we who are capable of reasoning without bias, must make 
the decision to defend our ideals as best we know how. We, 
of the younger generation who have been brought up in a 
world of constant motion and strife, must overcome this 
"dilemma of air power" which has been set up by politics 
as a blockade to our security. It is we who must realize and 
support the fact that today's inventions are tomorrow's 
necessities and that our tomorrow may lie just around the 
next bend.

Many years ago at T.C.S., the winner of the Grand 
Challenge Trophy was usually decided upon after the re- 
sults of Sports Day were complete. It seems that as the 
years progressed, the emphasis on Track and Field took a 
do\vn\\ard path. In fact, this sport has fallen sharply across 
Canada as was obvious in the recent Olympic Games. With 
all due regard to Cricket, which certainly should be con- 
tinued at its present high level throughout the School, I 
believe that Track should be given a higher rating than it 


has at present. There are a number of younger boys in the 
School who, if given encouragement and a chance for their 
enthusiasm to develop, have the potential to make quite a 
name for themselves and for the School. To put Track on 
a higher level, the facilities would have to be improved, the 
first consideration being a cinder track. Once a track has 
been properly installed, the upkeep would be next to nothing. 
There are few, if any, sports to surpass Track in competitive 
value, and there are enough keenly interested boys to make 
the addition of a cinder track a very worthwhile asset to the 

Climaxed with a winless cricket season (please note, 
however, that the sons defeated their fathers in the annual 
test match) it seems that this year, without its quota of 
championship teams, was rather a poor one in athletics. 
With the exception of a few individuals in Gym and Squash 
(I might hazard a plug for the Lawrenceville Hockey vic- 
tory) , it is true that there were no outstanding victories 
in the School. Nevertheless, I do not believe there were any 
indications of bad feeling in any interschool games this 
year, signs of which have appeared in the past. There were 
no rough play penalties called against us in football, no 
major or misconduct penalties in hockey, and no contro- 
versial "outs" in cricket. Sportsmanship hit a high level 
this year, which is far more important than an ill-gotten 
win — every handshake and every "welldone" can mean far 
more than gloating over the spoils of victory. However, to 
combine the two is the obvious objective, so let's start a 
new era of championship teams again next year! 


Owing to the complete and inexplicable loss of the 
Cricket Scorer's Book it is impossible to give the results 
of any matches in detail; we hope to print these in the 
October Record. 

Suffice it to say that the season of 1953 will not go 
down in history as our best; in the first place rain in large 


quantities washed out our first two miatches, then came the 
Cadet Inspection, and finally a match with Parkdale on 
May 16th which we lost. The team played well against the 
Old Boys on May 23rd but again lost, mainly through the 
inability of the batters to cope with Brian Magee's bowling. 

The first School match was at Port Hope on May 27th 
against St. Andrew's, T.C.S. batted first and declared for 
eight wickets when the score had reached about 90. S.A.C. 
had over two hours to bat and succeeded in gaining a draw 
with a score of about 60 for eight wickets. 

On Friday, May 29th, the team made its first trip to 
Ridley. Our hosts were kindness itself to us, but again rain 
fell heavily most of the night and part of the morning and 
the match had to be called off. On the way to Ridley on 
Friday the team was entertained to dinner at the Univer- 
sity Club. 

After much telephoning, it was agreed to play the 
Ridley match at U.C.C. on Coronation Day, June 2nd. The 
first Ridley batters fell quickly for a few runs. Then two 
Ridley boys made a splendid stand and took the score up 
to well above a hundred. When T.C.S. went in they hit out 
trying to make quick runs, but the wickets fell steadily and 
we were soundly defeated by a very good team. 

The next day, a hot one, the team played U.C.C. on 
their grounds. They were far too strong for us and our 
batters wilted before the excellent bowling. We were all out 
for about 20! U.C.C. then hit the ball all over the field and 
with one wicket down they had demohshed us, with the 
score in three figures. Later they defeated Ridley to win the 
Little Big Four. 

Both Ridley and U.C.C. had very good teams this year 
and we congratulate them; U.C.C. well deserved the cham- 



On the Monday after Speech Day, June 8th, the Haver- 
ford College Cricket Team visited us and played a team 
composed of masters, an Old Boy, two Fifth Form Bigside 
boys and two Junior School boys. Haverford batted first 
and made about ninety, two East Indians doing well. T.C.S. 
were all out for sixty. 

At dinner in Hall that night the Headmaster spoke of 
the unique occasion it had been and the pleasure felt by all 
at T.C.S. in having a visit from an American Cricket Team. 
Professor Comfort replied and mentioned that cricket had 
been played at Haverford for a hundred years. Then some 
members of the visiting team sang folk songs and negro 

We hope Haverford will come again, soon and often. 


Middleside Cricket this year had a very eventful season 
under the able captainship of Sutherland assisted by Mac- 
Kinnon. Although they did not bring home many laurels, 
the team showed fine sportsmanship throughout the season. 

The first game was played with Lakefield at the Grove. 
The T.C.S. team at this time was relatively inexperienced 
and lost out to their more powerful opponents. The Lake- 
field batting was led by Rashleigh who scored 57 runs to 
aid his team to reach the admirable score of 139 runs for 
one out. T.C.S. only managed to knock up 51. MacKinnon 
proved to be the best for the visiting T.C.S. team in both 
the batting and the bowling, taking the only wicket and 
making 11 runs. 

The next game was held here with Peterborough and 
although the team did better this time, the batting was still 
weak. After getting the visitors all out for 116 runs, the 
School scored only 44. Luxton, Scott, Ketchum and Kilburn 
bowled well for the School while Seymour did best in the 


batting. The captain, Sutherland, was exceptionally good 
as wicket-keeper. 

In an exciting game with U.C.C. at Toronto, the Trinity 
team managed to force the game to a draw. U.C.C. batted 
first and scored 153 runs for eight wickets. During our 
batting T.C.S. ran up a score of 133 runs for seven out. 
Mitchell accounted for 38 of our runs as well as taking two 
wickets. T.C.S. showed a vast improvement in this game 
although the fielding was weak. 

The final Middleside game was a return match with 
Lakefield at Trinity. The home team batted first and 
managed to secure 58 runs while the more powerful visitors 
scored 79 runs for five. For the School Sutherland played 
an excellent game behind the wickets and also did well in 
the batting. tenBroek was the high-scorer for T.C.S., get- 
ting 17 runs. 


This year Littleside had a short season, playing only 
three matches. Thus, due to lack of time and therefore 
practice and experience, they lost all three games. 

Trinity played its first game with the Toronto Junior 
Cricket All Stars losing by the narrow margin of 42-41. The 
Trinity innings was highlighted by the batting of Saegert 
who hit up 16 runs before he was run out. Boughner was 
next highest, scoring nine before he was caught. Taylor, 
the Toronto captain, opened and stayed up the whole innings, 
scoring his team's winning run before being caught by 
Saegert. Taylor was also Toronto's best bowler, taking 
four wickets for five runs, van Straubenzee was Littleside's 
best with six for eleven. 

In their second game played in Toronto, Trinity was 
soundly beaten 96-35 by a more experienced team from 
Upper Canada. Trinity batted first and was only saved 
from complete disaster by the excellent batting of captain 
van Straubenzee who scored 19 not out. Lash bowled ex- 



tremely well, taking four wickets for thirteen runs, three 
of these wickets on successive balls for a hat-trick. Taylor 
was both U.C.C.'s best batter and bowler, taking six for 
eighteen, and tallying 32 runs before being caught out by 

In the return match played on the Trinity pitch, U.C.C. 
again emerged victorious, this time by a 96-43 score. Hyland 
was high scorer for Trinity with 17, Campbell following 
with nine. Again Taylor was best batsman for Upper Canada, 
knocking up 41 before his wicket fell on a ball from Lash. 
Lash and Saegert shared the bowling honours for Trinity, 
the former taking two wickets for 12, the latter one for 
six. Ellis excelled for the visitors, taking five for four.

The annual School's Sport Day was held on Thursday, 
May 22, after a few days of rain. Nevertheless, some very 
good times were made in many events, two records were 
set and one was tied. Bob Young set an Intermediate Broad 
Jump record with a jump of 20' 2" ; beating the old mark 
of 19' 6"; Bill Hyland set a new mark in the Junior Pole 
Vault at 7' 71/2", half a foot better than the old record, and 
Bill Jenkins tied the Intermediate High Jump record of 
5' 3". 

The Daykin Cup for the Senior Champion was won by 
Mike dePencier with 22 points, closely followed by Tim 
Ryley who won the 100, 220, and 440, at 19 points. Jeff 
Boone was third with 12. In the Intermediate, Young was 
first with 28 points, Jemmett was second with 18, and 
Burns ii was third with 12. 

Hyland won the Junior with 26 points, Winnett came 
second with 18 and Campbell was third with 11.

Wednesday, May 27 

With Ridley dropping out at the last minute, the Upper 
Canada College Relays consisted this year of S.A.C., U.C.C. 
and T.C.S. The host team won the meet with 100 points, 
followed by S.A.C. with 88 and T.C.S. with 78. The meet 
produced some very good competition, our team doing very 
well for the practice we had. The Intermediates made a 
fine showing in their division, winning all the relays, and 
Young tied the meet record in the Broad Jump with a jump 
of 19' SVii". The Seniors managed only one first, dePencier 


and Boone combining to win the Broad Jump, but we were 
a close second in five other events, Jemmett and Mackinnon 
ran first and second respectively in the Open Mile, well ahead 
of their rivals. The Juniors came up against some very tough 
opposition, but nevertheless gave a good account of them- 

The team: 

Senior: dePencier, Ryley, Boone, Colbourne D. S., Col- 
bourne D. L., Mackinnon, West, Tice Jemmett. 

Intermediate: Young, Jenkins, Overholt ii. Burns ii, 
Ferrie, Donald, Merry. 

Junior: Hyland, Campbell, Ketchum, Caryer, Cowan ii, 
Gordon ii, Bonnycastle ii. Proctor, Board (Mgr.). 


The School tennis matches resulted in Roy Heenan 
winning the Senior, and Richard Seagram the Junior Singles. 
The Senior semi-finals saw Heenan defeat Young 6-1, 6-2, 
and Bateman defeat Thornton. In the final match, Heenan 
outclassed his rival Bateman in three straight sets 6-1, 6-2, 
6-0. The semi-finals of the Junior enabled Seagram to de- 
feat Budge ii and Scott ii to defeat Ross ii. In a close final 
match, Seagram edged Scott. The tennis throughout the 
tournament was of very high calibre, the Senior seeing 
many upsets. 

In the Interhouse tennis, the LeSueur Trophy was won 
by Brent, three matches to none. Heenan and Gordon com- 
bined to defeat Kells and Thornton, while Young and Bate- 
man teamed up to edge Lafleur H. P. and West. In the other 
match, Scott ii and Seagram ii defeated Drummond and 
Ross ii to make it a clean sweep for Brent.

Another School year has passed and we can look back 
and count our blessings. These have been many and we are 
thankful for the good health enjoyed by the School and for 
all those who contributed so much to make the School run 

Our very sincere thanks to Mrs. Charles Jennings for 
her kindness in renting a television set for Coronation Day, 
and also to Mr. Ralph for providing us with such a magnifi- 
cent Coronation display of fireworks. 

To the Toronto Branch of the Ladies' Guild we also 
send our thanks for a number of excellent new books which 
their contributions have enabled us to add to our shelves. 

Cricket has never been more popular in the Junior 
School than it was this year. Baseball was never even men- 
tioned and every boy in the School took an active part in a 
game or in the nets every day. If this continues, the stand- 
ard of play at the School should improve very rapidly. 

It is with the greatest regret that we say good-bye to 
Mr. D. W. Morris, who has been with us since 1944. His 
loyal support of everything to do with the School has con- 
tributed greatly to our everyday life here over the past 
nine years. Our very best wishes go with him and with 
Mrs. Morris and Patrick. We will hope to see them often 
at the School. 


In company with many thousands of Canadians, the 
Junior School awoke early on Coronation Day and Ustened 
to the broadcast of the service in the Abbey. A radio was 
available for each dormitory so that a certain amount of 
comfort was also possible. 

Some sports took place during the morning and a Toast 
to the Queen was drunk at lunch. Six of the older boys took 
part in a parade of floats in the town dressed as Beefeaters, 
Crusaders, etc. 


The television program provided great interest although 
our reception was not always of the best. 

In the evening a fireworks display attracted a large 
number of people from the town and also from the Senior 


There he was, sitting in the fading twilight of the day, 
among the rehcs he had lived with all his life. He sat in 
an old rocking chair which had passed through many gener- 
ations. It creaked slowly back and forth with the movements 
of the old man. A blue cloud of cigar smoke hung above 
his head as he thoughtfully puffed on it. His eyes were a 
blue colour and, although they were dimming with age, a 
small sparkle gleamed in them, the remnant of his boyhood. 
His nose was straight but with a slight bump where he had 
broken it during a football game in his early days. A dia- 
mond stickpin was transfixed through a black tie. 

Around him was the bric-a-brac of his sporting and 
adventurous career. A deer's head decorated the wall and 
a leopard skin lay on the floor. A flintlock and a muzzle- 
loading rifle hung on the wall. On the mantel-piece were 
arrayed the photographs of his relatives. Trophy cups 
adorned the ancient upright piano. In a corner was a pile 
of postcards and letters sent to hrni by his son in India. 

The old man is dead now, but we will remember the 
sparkle and gleam in his eyes as he told us stories about 
fabulous wealth, treasure and gold. Yes, we will always 
remember the old man. 

— T. J. Ham, Form ni. 


The dark blue waves lash over the wind-worn rocks as 
a curtain covering them, then uncovering, to let the sun 
reflect off the glassy crevices. 


As the morning moves on, the waves grow in height. 
A large black cloud comes up over the etched horizon like 
a blanket covering the whole earth. In five or even ten 
minutes a terrific storm will arrive now that the cloud has 
covered the sun. Then from the now black heavens, the rain 
bursts down upon the water, upon rocks, and scanty sand. 
The water begins to ripple as the rain drops slash down. 
The giant waves boom against the rocks, throwing spray 
hundreds of feet into the air, then the battered water slides 
back into the swelling torrent of black ivory studded with 
giant diamonds of snow-white foam. 

Now and then a log of driftwood is smashed against 
the rocks as if picked up by a giant arm and thrown full 
force against a harder substance than itself, throwing mil- 
lions of splinters in all directions. 

Somewhere else in the world the sea is calm and col- 
lective and sunlit; but will someday be thrown around also. 
At all times the sea is either great or cruel or beautiful. 

— M. I. G. C. Dowie, Form IIB. 


A closed bottle floating on the deep— sign of a cast- 
away? A broken spar wallowing to lee — sign of a wreck? 
But wait. Way out on the horiozn a speck. No, just a fig- 
ment of the imagination. We look away but curiosity draws 
us back. The speck draws near. Now it is a boat, a sun- 
bleached, lifeless, one-masted dinghy. 

As we are becalmed, we must use a longboat to reach 
the craft. "Stand by to cast off," comes the cry. Then in 
a spray of water we are off. Twenty men pulling with all 
their might, muscles corded and gleaming with sweat under 
the broiling sun. We sit in the stern watching with fas- 
cination as the lifeless craft draws near. 

Lying on the seat in the boat is — is a man. We clamber 
into the dinghy and turn him over. He is dead but his body 
tells his story. EQs lips are cracked and dry and his tongue 


is thick and parched in its now-ended search for water. His 
body is marked with sores and teeth marks. His hair is 
white and matted. We feel pity for this man and his terrible 
death from thirst. 

But are there other survivors of this craft? We see 
none, so we put the body in the longboat for burial. 

But wait, what is that lapping sound in the stern sheets? 
We see two beady eyes and then it emerges. It is a— a rat! 

— J. L. Spivak, Form III. 


It's Spring! The valley is turning from a dirty brown 
to a brilliant green. The mountains stand like giant pillars 
silhouetted against the brilliant blue sky. The snow-capped 
tips are like shining diamonds, when the sun casts its rays 
upon them. The little lake is like a shimmering jewel in the 
middle of a soft green valley. 

The birds begin to sing and fill the air with joy and 
happiness. Occasionally, a deer will dash from the wooded 
mountain slopes with her doe close behind her. The wild 
flowers begin to blossom and fill the valley with a fragrant 

It's Spring, and heaven on earth is in "a valley in the 

mountains". — H. B. Bowen, Form IIB. 


This large, stout rodent lives mainly in water. He 
averages in length about two and a half feet, larger than 
an otter. He has a thick, warm, brown coat, the upper hairs 
of which form a waterproof covering for his woolly under- 

The beaver's main purpose in building a dam seems to 
be to ensure a sufficient depth of water around his house 
for him to swim in when the water surface is frozen over 
in the winter. 


Beavers obtain material to build their dams and also 
their houses, which are known as lodges, by cutting trees 
with their sharp teeth. 

The beaver lodge is a permanent house with the en- 
trance beneath the surface of the water and the beaver 
lives there both summer and winter. The lodge usually con- 
tains two rooms, one used as a living room and the other 
as a pantry for storing food. 

At the close of the winter or early in the spring, four 
or five young ones are born in the lodge.

The First XI enjoyed a very satisfactory season, win- 
ning three matches, drawing one, and losing one. 

The general standard of batting was high this year with 
some very hard hitters on the team. The bowling improved 
during the season, but was probably never our strongest 
point. The fielding was good.

Golden Jubilee 

This year the Ladies' Guild has celebrated its fiftieth 
anniversary and every member of T.C.S. joins in giving 
heartfelt congratulations and gratitude to the Guild for its 
wonderful record of service to the School, 

It is the oldest School Ladies' Guild in Canada but it 
is still young in spirit and devotion. 

The idea of forming a Guild originated with the late 
Dr. Symonds, the Headmaster from 1901-1903, and the late 
Mrs. E. B. Osier of Toronto. A meeting was held at Mrs. 
Osier's house on February 18th, 1902 and the Guild was 
organized with the object of "completing the Chapel and 
otherwise furthering the interests of the School." Mrs. Osier 
was elected the first President, Mrs. Oswald Rigby, Trea- 
surer, and Miss Emily Bethune, Secretary. 

It is fitting that during this Jubilee year another Mrs, 
Osier should have been President, Mrs. B, M, Osier of 

A branch was afterwards formed in Port Hope with 
Mrs. Symonds as President; in 1903 Mrs. Rigby succeeded 
Mrs, Symonds on the appointment of Dr, Rigby as Head- 

We hope to print a more detailed history of the Guild 
in a future issue of the Record; suffice it to say that the 
Presidents over the years have been: 

Mrs. E. B. Osier, 1902-1911, Mrs. William Ince, 1911- 
1920 (?), Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin, 1920 (?)-1928 (?), Mrs. 
George Cartwright, 1928 (?)-1935, Mrs, Britton Osier, 1935- 
1947, Mrs. George Kirkpatrick 1947-1949, Mrs, Lawrence 
Grout, 1949-1951, Mrs. B. M. Osier, 1951-1953, and Mrs. N. 
O, Seagram, 1953, 

The Presidents of the Port Hope branch (organized in 
1902) have been: Mrs, Herbert Symonds, Mrs, Oswald Rigby, 
Mrs. Edgar, Mrs, Mildred Wotherspoon, Mrs, Gretta Whit- 
ton (daughter of Mrs, Symonds), Mrs, A. C. Morris. 


The Presidents of the Montreal branch (organized in 
1944) have been: Mrs. R. P. Jellett, Mrs. Andrew Fleming, 
Mrs. Philip Fisher, Mrs. Q. C. D. Bovey, Mrs. Frank McGill, 
Mrs. W. K. Newcomb, Mrs. Mostyn Lewis, Mrs. G. M. Strong, 
Mrs. H. S. Bogert, Mrs. D. A. Maclnnes. 

In recent years, of course, the Guild has made a mag- 
nificent contribution to the building and furnishing of the 
new Mem^orial Chapel; without the help of the ladies over 
the years the Chapels could never have been so beautifully 
furnished, or many rooms in the School so comfortably and 
tastefully equipped. Long May The Guild Flourish! 

The following is the report of the President at the 
fiftieth annual meeting on May 7th, 1953: 

Ladies and Gentlemen: 

It is my privilege to present to you the 50th Annual 
Report of the President of the Ladies' Guild of Trinity Col- 
lege School. First, I would like t« welcome you, particularly 
the ladies who have come from Montreal and those of you 
who are attending your first meeting. 

This is the Jubilee of the Ladies' Guild and while I am 
not going to give you a detailed history of the Guild, I would 
like to say how much we of to-day are indebted to the late 
Mrs. E. B. Osier, Mrs. William Ince, Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin 
and many others who years ago formed the Guild. The 
original purpose of the Guild was the special care of the 
chapel but over the years the Guild has also assisted the 
school in many other ways such as panelling and refurn- 
ishing the reception room in Trinity House, decorating com- 
mon rooms, providing bursaries and giving grants for books 
for the Library. 

I mentioned last year that we planned to add to the 
Chapel furnishings and on the first Anniversary of the 
Opening of the Memorial Chapel the new white frontal 
arrived from England. Our grateful thanks are extended to 
Mr. Gerald Larkin for ordering this frontal for us last sum- 
mer when he was in England. 


Kneelers for the Chapel were badly needed and, as 
there was sufficient money in the Chapel Account to cover 
this item, your Executive Committee asked Mrs. N. O. Sea- 
gram, the Chapel Chairman, to order the required materials. 
These kneelers are now in use in the Chapel. 

I attended the Memorial Service on Trinity Sunday and 
on your behalf placed a wreath on the Cross of Sacrifice. 
This wreath was made by the Port Hope Guild. 

On Speech Day I was asked to present the Art Prizes 
and, as in other years, the Helen Matthews Somerville and 
the Dudley Dawson bursaries of the value of $200.00 each 
were sent to the School through the Guild. May I at this 
time thank the ladies who have been so very generous to 
us for their large and small donations in the past year. 
Through these donations we have been able to tackle much 
larger projects than we could have possibly done without 
this valuable and much appreciated aid. 

The Anual Reports for the last year were printed and 
sent to all three Guilds during the early part of the summer. 

I had the pleasure of entertaining the mothers of new 
boys at tea in November. Your Executive were very pleased 
to meet so many of the new mothers and I hope many of 
them are here to-day. 

It was brought to the attention of your Committee 
that recovering of the present furniture and new curtains 
were needed in the sitting room of the Hospital. Mrs. J. W. 
Seagram and Mrs. Geoffrey Boone were authorized as a 
Comjnittee to purchase curtain material and chintz for this 
room. It is hoped that at a later date the Guild will supply 
curtains for the wards. 

During the year $50.00 was sent to Mr. Tottenham for 
the replenishment of records and books for the Junior 

The Gift Book has been brought up to date and will 
be returned to the Guild Room in time for Inspection Day.

It is with regret that I record the recent death of 
Mrs. Strachan Ince, an old and valued member of the Guild. 
A letter of sympthy will be written to her family. 

An invitation to be present at the Annual Meeting of 
the Montreal Guild was received. Unfortunately I was unable 
to accept this kind invitation. Invitations were also received 
from Ridley College and St. Andrew's College Ladies' Guilds 
to their Annual Meetings. It was regrettable that these 
meeting should both be held on the same day. However, I 
asked one of my Executive to represent T.C.S. at St. An- 
drew's, while I had the pleasure of attending Ridley College 


As your retiring President I would like to thank all 
the members of the Executive for their help and willingness 
at all times to assume responsibility and for making my 
duties so pleasant. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

M. Lorraine Osler. 





The annual meeting of the Central Association was 
held, in conjunction with the Reunion Week-end, at the 
Lodge, on Saturday, May 23, 1953. The President, Mr. 
Norman O. Seagram, was in the chair and gave an excellent 
summary of the Association's activities during the past 
year — the successful work for the Sustaining Fund, the 
Bursary Fund, the Father and Son Cricket game, the Re- 
union Week-end. He named, also, a few of the Old Boys 
who have made headlines during the past year — Ernie 
Howard ('38-46) in Squash, Group Captain D. H. MacCaul 
('16-'21) who took the Inspection Day salute, C. C. T. Nichols 
('31-'32), appointed an Editor of the Toronto Telegram, and 
C. H. Pentland ("22-'27), who was tragically killed recently 
in the crash of the C.P.A. comet jet airliner in Karachi. The 
financial statements and the minutes were accepted unani- 
mously on motion of J. W. Seagram and J. C. dePencier. 

The Association's membership fee, the publication of 
The Record and the Old Boys' Bulletin were discussed at 
length. The President said that the Old Boys' Bulletin was 
the best innovation ever. It was moved by S. B. Saunders, 
seconded by Brigadier I. H. Cumberland, that the Head- 
master, the President and the Secretary investigate these 
three matters and be empowered to act on any decisions 
made. Passed unanimously. 

The question of a new or additional Old Boys' Tie was 
discussed. The motion, made by J. C. dePencier, seconded by 
J. G. Defries, that the Old Boys' Tie now worn be continued 
without change was passed unanimously. 


The Headmaster gave a report on the branches now 
organized and operating effectively and conveyed the greet- 
ings of the United Kingdom Branch to the meeting. It was 
enthusiastically agreed that the more branches be recon- 

The Old Boys present discussed the Week-end and it 
was agreed that the same date should be retained for next 
year and more pubhcity given to it. 

Mr. Norman Seagram reported on the Sustaining Fund, 
its importance, and the successful results so far achieved 
in the quiet campaign among Old Boys under the chairman- 
ship of Mr. C. F. W. Burns. 

Brigadier Ian Cumberland was elected President of the 
Association for the ensuing year and Mr. J. C. dePencier 
was elected as a representative of the Association on the 
Governing Body of the School for a term of three years. 

The Headmaster expressed the very deep gratitude of 
the Association to the retiring President, Mr. Seagram, for 
all he had done both for the Association and for the School 
and the meeting adjourned.
