Fatalism and defeatism. Two common words. Two 
doctrines of similar nature. Attitudes not usually claimed, 
yet in actual fact enjoying widespread popularity. You dis- 
agree? I will attempt to explain. 

First of all, let us resolve the meaning of these terms. 
The word "fatalism," as defined by the Oxford Dictionary, 
means "the submission to all that happens as inevitable." 
That is, that the outcome of any issue is completely pre- 
determined by some higher power, apparently exclusive of 


human effort. You can see how this attitude might tend 
to degenerate to defeatism which is "the conduct tending to 
bring about the acceptance of defeat." 

Most people would instinctively disagree with these 
opening statements. Granted, they seemingly present rather 
pessimistic observations. However, allow me to illustrate 
my simple postulations. 

Take for instance the recent examples of last year's 
Senior Matriculation Examinations. I think it is reasonable 
to state that a certain amount of fatalism is associated 
with every test, and the amount is as much or greater for 
these. You will remember that among the first papers 
written was Geometry, and an infamous paper it was! The 
paper was of such unexpected nature that it discouraged 
many a good student to the extent that mentally he con- 
ceded his entire matric. This was apparent in the results 
of the remaining papers. A costly if simple case of de- 

The same philosophy has decided many an athletic 
contest. Frequently you hear of a so-called "jinx", where 
one team (or person) has become resigned to being tra- 
ditionally drubbed by another. Since they have virtually 
given up all hopes for victory before the game has as much 
as started, they do not play to win, but merely to "finish the 
game". Under these conditions the fine tradition is usually 
upheld. TCS had some such troubles several years ago in 
football with the Little Big Four school that parades as its 
mascot a rather bedraggled looking jungle beast. However, 
we hasten to add that this misconception no longer exists. 

But let us not limit our scope to TCS, for as its life yields 
a multitude of examples, so does every other sphere of 
activity. Take voodoo fans, for instance. Here, once the 
dreaded curse has descended upon the hapless recipient, he 
begins to die immediately. His misguided faith is so strong 
that his mind submits to death without question, and con- 
sequently his body wastes away and shortly he dies a 
physical death also. 


There is a more modern if less stirring example of 
fatalism with which I am sure you are all familiar. I refer 
of course to that drivel set to music entitled "Que sera, 
sera", (Whatever will be will be.) 

However, so much for examples. Now let us resolve 
the main problem. What causes these moods of fatalism and 
defeatism? Sometimes, of course, it is the result of trying 
to combat the uncombatable. More often, though, it seems 
to be one's admission of inadequacy to master any given 
situation or obstacle, as in the case of those Senior Matric 
exams. What the attitudes really amount to is retiring and 
allowing the situation to follow its self -chosen course, without 
the benefit of your own mental or physical effort. (What- 
ever will be, will be.) In addition, if you have reached the 
defeatist stage, you probably expect its course to terminate 
m wholesale disaster! A slightly pathetic and definitely 
wasteful philosophy certainly. 

In this same vein, a striking contrast was apparent in 
the early stages of the Second World War. France and 
Great Britain faced Germany under approximately similar 
conditions. Before Hitler's hordes had even begun their 
dastardly march, most of the French nation was already 
defeated by clever German propaganda. The actual battle 
of France was almost a mere "follow-through". On the 
other hand, the British, led by Sir Winston, rejected defeat 
in commendable style, fought the Battle of Britain certain 
of their eventual success, and halted Adolph's war machine 
in its tracks. It was as much a mental victory as a physical 

So you see that fatalism and defeatism reap their 
plunder in everyday life as well as in times of bitter crisis. 
Unfortunately, the fault lies usually with the victim, for 
it was he who ascribed the qualities of the invincible to that 
which did not warrant it. 

Finally, as a parting gesture, allow me to thrust upon 
you a thought-provoking suggestion. I believe that you 
would be doing yourself a definite favour in future if you 


would remember to evaluate objectively any issue before 
you decide to toss in the sponge. The results will probably 
be shocking!

Working on the time-proven assumption that many 
minds are better than a few, the editors of the Record 
would really welcome all letters of suggestion and construc- 
tive criticism from any of our three thousand addicted 

J. W. LANGMUIR ('06-'07) 

The death on September 16 of Colonel John Langmuir 
removed one of the most faithful workers for T.C.S. in the 
past twenty years. John Langmuir became a member of 
the Governing Body in 1933 and he succeeded Mr. R. C. H. 
Cassels as Secretary of the Board in 1937. In those days 
the Secretary did much of the work which the Chairman 
and the Executive Committee do today. For thirteen years 
he carried this heavy load and when Mr. G. B. Strathy re- 
signed as Chairman of the Board he succeeded him and 
remained as Chairman until January 1952. Thus for sixteen 
years, and throughout the difficult war years. Colonel Lang- 
muir acted as Secretary, as Chairman and Secretary, and 
as Chairman of the Governing Body, shouldering respon- 
sibilities and burdens for T.C.S. seldom borne by one man. 

In 1937, under Mr. Cassels' leadership, the School was 
rejoicing in completely new buildings but the debt had been 
a staggering one. We had been saved from bankruptcy by 
the magnificent generosity of Mr. Britton Osier and by the 
whole-hearted response of the Governors and other friends, 
organized by Mr. Cassels and Mr. Jellett. But we still had 
a bonded indebtedness and when Colonel Langmuir suc- 
ceeded to the Secretaryship he directed the clearing off of 
this heavy obligation. Then came the memorable seventy- 
fifth anniversary reunion at the School in 1940 which seemed 


to be a turning point in our story. It was during Colonel 
Langmuir's term of office that Petry House was recon- 
structed into two masters' apartments, the Hospital was 
completely re-built, the Farm house re-modelled and recon- 
structed. Then came the wonderful gift by Mr. George Mc- 
Cullagh of the Peter Campbell Memorial Rink, and the Hugh 
Russel Memorial Tuck building given by Mr. and Mrs. Blair 
Russel. Finally the Memorial Fund, instituted at the end 
of the war and directed by Mr. Charles Burns, enabled us 
to build the beautiful Chapel. Colonel Langmuir was Chair- 
man or Secretary or both during these all-important years 
and he gave himself unsparingly to all these undertakings. 
No man could have been more generous of his time, no one 
could have been more painstaking, more wise and calm in 
his approach to the many problems which confronted him. 
In all the multifarious matters which need attention at a 
boarding school from day to day he was patience personified 
and always a wise and sympathetic counsellor. 

We remember his many visits to the School, the days 
he spent walking about the property and examining the 
buildings, the very courteous and pleasing way he met the 
masters and many employees, the hours he gave in his office 
in Toronto to School business and discussions with repre- 
sentatives of the School, the plans he made for future 
development; in all these and many other ways Colonel 
Langmuir gave complete and wholehearted service to his 
old School and we shall always be in his debt. 

Before he retired in 1949 he was General Manager of 
the Toronto General Trusts Corporation, and he had been 
President of the Toronto branch of the Red Cross Society 
during the Second World War. His Majesty the King ap- 
pointed him a member of the Order of the British Empire 
for his many contributions to the war effort. 

In the First World War he went overseas in 1915 with 
the Eaton Machine Gun battery of the Queen's Own Rifles. 
A year later he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps, see- 
ing much action in those early days of flying. After the 


war he continued his deep interest in the Queen's Own, suc- 
ceeding to the Command in 1930. 

When he retired to Brockville he continued to take a 
most active interest in community affairs, being elected 
President of the Kiwanis Club and supporting the work of 
the First Presbyterian Church in every way. He was Presi- 
dent of the St. Lawrence Engine Company and General 
Manager of the Universal Engine Company. His son, J. 
W. C. Langmuir ('35-'40) was elected Mayor of Brockville. 

T.C.S. has lost one of its most devoted sons but all 
who knew John Langmuir will seldom think of the School 
or walk about the property without vividly realizing what a 
large part of his heart was in Port Hope. 


Billy Bishop died on September 11 after a long illness 
but his fame as a flyer in the First World War will never 
die. Those were the days of open cockpits, no parachutes, 
one engine, and a machine gun which often jammed. Some- 
how Billy Bishop became part of the elements and like an 
eagle he swooped unerringly on his prey. He was the best 
fighter pilot in all the Commonwealth forces, shooting down 
seventy-two planes. He won the highest awards — the V.C, 
the D.S.O., the M.C. were presented to him at one investiture 
by King George V, and he had already won the D.F.C. In 
the Second World War he was appointed Director of Re- 
cruiting for the R.C.A.F. and he played a vital part in the 
air training plan. 

He was elected a member of the Governing Body in 
1940 and remained on the Board until 1954 when ill health 
forced him to resign. Before the war he flew to the School 
to take the salute at an Inspection of the Cadet Corps and 
in his speech to the boys he commented on the fact that 
the T.C.S. Corps was the first in the Empire to be affiliated 
with an Air Force Unit. He also mentioned his concern 
over the conditions he found in Germany and told us we 
should be prepared for trouble. 


No one who knew him will ever forget Billy Bishop 
or his amazing skill and bravery as a fighter pilot. The 
School will always be indebted to him for his interest in 
our welfare, and the inspiration he gave to young flying 

G. S. O'BRIAN ('07-'12) 

It is difficult for one who knew Geoff O'Brian most 
of his life to write of him without appearing to exaggerate, 
for there could be few men of his generation who had such 
an instinctive ability to inspire friendship and admiration. 
He was a man's man, extremely good company and always 
getting his teeth into some interesting problem. He had 
definite ideas and spoke his mind but never in a way to 
offend or disturb people. And always one knew that his 
eyes were on the horizon, over the hills, and that a great 
purpose was the mainspring of his life. 

He came to T.C.S. as a young boy of twelve in 1907 and 
after five years he was Head Boy. Entering the University 
of Toronto he did well in his courses and took an active 
interest in the militia. On the outbreak of war in 1914 he 
volunteered immediately and went overseas as a Lieutenant 
in command of the University of Toronto platoon of the 
Second Division, Cyclists Corps. In the winter of 1916 he 
joined the Royal Flying Corps, seeing much service in 
France and as a Ferry Pilot. He was awarded the Air Force 
Cross late in 1916. Returning to Canada, he was given 
command of the training squadron at Deseronto, a post 
formerly held by British officers. 

In 1919 he entered Osgoode Hall and after graduation 
practised law until 1929 when flying called to him again. 
Joining the deHaviland Aircraft Company he became a test 
pilot and later a director of the company. He was the first 
man to fly solo from Toronto to Winnipeg and established 
a record by flying to Edmonton from Toronto, two thousand 
air miles in twenty hours. He also flew as a bush pilot in 
Northern Ontario and Quebec. 


In 1932 he organized the first R.C.A.F. reserve squadron, 
the City of Toronto Squadron, the unit with which the 
T.C.S. Cadet Corps became affiliated in 1936. For some 
years he was on the staff of St. Andrew's College, becoming 
Head of the Lower School, but in 1939 when the Second 
World War broke out he offered his services at once. 

During the 1939-1945 war Geoff O'Brian held many 
important commands and contributed in no small measure 
to the success of the Commonwealth Air Training plan. In 
London, Ontario, he commanded the 114th Bomber Squa- 
dron, he organized the ground school at Trenton, he took 
over the No. 1 Training Centre at Eglinton where his knowl- 
edge and skill were invaluable. Later he was posted over- 
seas, to Bournemouth, England, and at the end of the war 
he was in command of the Rockcliffe Station. It is said 
that Geoff met more than half of all the Canadian flying 
crews in the war, and he always made a deep impression 
on all under his command. Geoff rose in rank from Squadron 
Leader to Wing Commander to Group Captain to Air Com- 
modore and in 1946 he was appointed by His Majesty a 
Commander of the Order of the British Empire. But rank 
and decorations meant little to Geoff O'Brian : it was always 
the man who counted. 

After the war he was appointed director of Cadet Train- 
ing in the Ontario Department of Education and his en- 
thusiasm and initiative inspired many schools to continue 
and vastly improve this important branch of their work. 
He wrote and printed a series of biographical sketches of 
great men which influenced all who read them. During these 
years he attended several T.C.S. Cadet Inspections and in 
May 1946 he took the salute. On that occasion he remarked 
on the deep pleasure it gave him to see the boys of his old 
School so well trained and to know they were affiliated 
with the Air Force. 

Geoff retired only a few years ago and built a country 
home near Bobcaygeon, Ontario, close to his family's sum- 
mer cottage where he had spent many happy holidays. He 



took an active interest in the affairs of the community and 
especially the Anglican church. 

In 1950 he was elected a member of the Governing 
Body in recognition of his distinguished service in the Air 
Force and his devotion to the School. 

A year ago last June he and his wife came down for 
Speech Day and after he returned he wrote to say that 
he had relived some of the happiest days of his life and 
would never forget the joy it gave him to experience the 
"feel" of the School so intimately. 

He died on September 13 after a heart attack and 
was buried in Bobcaygeon on September 15 with full Air 
Force honours. 

The motto of the Air Force, "Per Ardua ad Astra," 
will always characterize Geoff O'Brian, but the many 
hundreds who knew him closely will remember so clearly 
the warmth of his friendship, his encouragement, his good 
humour and his high ideals. 




On Sunday, September 22, Canon Crump addressed the 
School at evening chapel. He spoke about the place the 
Bible should have in one's life. For the past twenty-five 
years, he has been trying to further the use of the Bible in 
the School Curriculum. He quoted a parable typifying the 
proper attitude to take towards the Bible. 

A father, returning from a long voyage, brought home 
an ancient chest. It was first put in the boys' room, where 
it was used for odds and ends. Eventually, it was put in the 
basement, where it was left to gather dust. There is stayed 
for many years, until one day, one of the sons returned with 
his bride. She asked for the old chest to take to their new 
home, discovering soon afterwards, however, that it was 
a priceless antique. Instead of selling it, she made it the 
centre of the household, and had the home built around it. 


The Bible may be compared to the chest, for it is indeed 
the world's greatest antique. Often neglected and let gather 
dust, it is only brought out when the minister pays a visit. 
This is a wrong attitude to take. As in the case of the 
young bride, one's life should be built around it, for it 
supplies answers to daily problems. It contains the very 
essence of life. 

At Canon Crump's church in Calgary, every bride is 
given a Bible and the advice "to read a few verses every 
day." The Canon gave the same advice to the boys of our 
School. Every boy should centre his daily living around 
the Bible. It will provide a firm foundation for true, Chris- 
tian character. 


On Sunday, September 29, Canon Lawrence spoke to 
us about the significance of the words of Psalm 91, verse 2, 
"He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee 
in thy ways." 

St. Paul wrote in one of his Epistles that we should 
not give all our attention to the parts of the Christian 
faith which please us most. Instead, we should plan our 
mstruction so as to leave out nothing necessary for salvation. 

From this came our planned calendar of feast days, 
Christmas, Easter, and so on. It is hard to say when the 
day for remembering angels was set aside. Besides this 
day, we remember them at various other times such as 
Holy Communion, Christmas, and Easter. Canon Lawrence 
also stressed the fact that Christ Himself believed in the 
reality of angels. For example, during the night of Christ's 
capture at Gethsemane, He spoke of twelve legions of angels 
that could come at His command to rescue Him. We were 
also reminded of the parable of the shepherd and the lost 
sheep. The Canon drew a parallel by showing the happiness 
of the angels upon the redemption of one strayed human 


So it is at this time of year that we remember the 
angels and, what is most important, the fact that they have 
charge over us. 


On Sunday, September 30, at noon, a private service 
was held in the Chapel at which the two gallery windows 
were dedicated in memory of Donald William McLaren ('20- 
'29) and Squadron Leader Robert Duncan McLaren ('28- 
'34 ) . The windows were given by Mrs. Duncan McLaren 
and designed and executed by Miss Yvonne Williams of To- 
ronto. They depict the Holy Family, Mary, Joseph and 
the Baby in one, and Mary, Joseph and the young Boy in 
another. In the north window may also be seen a small 
figure of a young man in civilian clothes and in the south 
window a figure of an Air Force pilot. 

Donald McLaren died from a sudden illness in August 
1929: Bob McLaren had been studying aeronautics in Eng- 
land before the war and had joined the Air Force on the 
outbreak of hostilities. He instructed in Canada for two 
years and then returned to England where he was attached 
to a special Meteorological Flight. He took part in many 
hazardous missions and was awarded the D.F.C. for dis- 
tinguished and gallant service. He was killed in action on 
February 27, 1945, while on duty over Germany. 

The School feels most privileged to have these lovely 


The newly organized choir has already made a favour- 
able impression while fulfilling its most important function, 
that of leading the singing in the Chapel Services. 

Only seven of the Senior Boys returned in September. 
Seventeen of the many volunteers have been selected to 
fill the vacancies. 



Twelves trebles have also been added to replace others 
who have moved up to the Senior School. 

R. T. Hall has been appoointed Head Choir Boy.

T. R. Derry and R. J. Austin were selected last June to 
take Flying Scholarships during the summer under the 
plan sponsored by the Air Cadet League of Canada and the 

Both Cadets took their flying training at the Toronto 
Flying Club during July. Austin and Derry passed the flying 
tests and ground school exams, Derry being selected by 
the Flying Club to represent the club in the competition for 
the Tudhope Trophy. 


The top candidate in each Flying Club in Canada is 
being re-tested by one examiner in a flying test. The final 
result of the test will be added to the ground school results 
in the ratio of 75 percent for flying and 25 percent for 
ground exams, to arrive at the final figure for the Tudhope 

Derry is the first T.C.S. boy who has been selected for 
competition in this trophy. The result will not be known 
until Christmas. 


The old familiar faces again invaded T.C.S. No resist- 
ance was made against this invasion for it was indeed a 
pleasure to recreate old times in our conversation. 

The main attack staged by those returning to the 
School for the week-end occurred on Monday afternoon. 
It came in the shape of a slightly disorganized split T attack 
which ran up four touchdowns against the Middleside foot- 
ball squad who were held to two. Both the Middleside and 
Bigside coaches opposed the School. The final minute of the 
battle produced a touchdown pass for Middleside even 
though the opposition numbered about 25 for the final play. 
The average weight of the split T line of the Old Boys has 
been calculated as 210 lbs. — the more credit to Middleside. 

The Montreal crowd acted as the first line of battle. The 
Lodge served as an unusually comfortable barracks. Soon 
to follow up were representations bearing military standards 
from U. of T., Queen's and Western. Many other colleges 
were also represented at the call to arms. 

Of great interest to spectators and also combatants 
was the soccer game between the present members of the 
School and a team of Old Boys and masters. The game 
resulted in a 1-1 tie and hence a truce was made. There 
was some question about the number playing for the Old 
Boys, but it was made clear they were all 60-minute men 
— the whole fifteen of them. 


Now that appetites had reached a peak the field was 
cleared and everyone reported to the mess hall. We thank 
Mrs. Clark and her kitchen staff for the wonderful turkey 
dinner. After dinner Ian Binnie led the School and visitors 
in a sing song intermingled with school yells. Mr. Lawson 
in person conducted a chorus of the School song which he 

After the tea which followed the game, the bruised Old 
Boys made a retreat and said goodbye to School for another 
while. Meanwhile peace reigned again in the halls of T.C.S. 


The Dramatic Society had ten remaining members to 
begin this year's activities. The first meeting was held 
purely for the purpose of electing an executive. Ian Binnie 
was elected president and Colin McNairn vice-president. 
Derry was elected secretary, Sutton treasurer, and Hyde 
committee member. Mr. Angus Scott continued his post as 
director. There was a large number of applications for 
membership to the society and auditions were held. Sub- 
sequently, Adam, Denny, Haslett, Kennish, Richards, and 
Young were voted in as new members. We look forward to 
another successful season. 


The Library was sorry to lose Mr. and Mrs. Dening at 
the end of last term, but it has gained a competent and 
enthusiastic supervisor in Mr. Gordon. We welcome, too, 
Mrs. Ketchum, whose assistance already has proved inval- 
uable. The new libarians have fitted in smoothly and many 
new books have been placed on the shelves. It is hoped that 
in the near future a shelf of good paper-backed novels will 
be made available. The Library looks forward to a pleasant 
and successful year. 



The 1956 Magee Cup Race was run over last year's 
course, with all new boys in the Third and Fourth Forms 
competing. The race was won by P. T. Wurtele, who finished 
the course in 11.22 minutes. Hassel, who was the first one 
eligible for the Magee Cup competition, was credited with 
ten points. 


The French Club has started this year with a somewhat 
bigger bang than usual as over forty enthusiastic French- 
speakers assembled in the Guild Room for the first meeting 
on September 21. 

At this meeting David Cape was elected President and 
Adam Saunders was elected Secretary. Mr. Bishop, as 
usual, is doing a marvellous job as director of the club and 
this year we are fortunate in having Mr. Massey with us 
as well to assist with the large group. 

To date there have been four meetings at which French 
songs have been sung, French games played and generally 
everyone has had a good time — in French. It is hoped that 
another French play will be produced again this Christmas, 
although Mr. Bishop is encumbered with the affairs of a 
Housemaster. K the club continues as it has started, it is 
sure to be a success. 


Elections for the Senior Debating Society were held 
this year on October fifth. All posts were closely contested, 
but the executive was finally set up with Allen i as Presi- 
dent, Young as Vice-President and English as Secretary. 

Everyone is looking forward to another successful 
season, which will open with a home debate against Ridley 
College after mid-term.

Arbuthnott, J. R. ('55-'56). John "Gobblenob" Arbuthnott appeared 
from 205 Brent last September amid a maze of encircling decorations. 
That room with the "What Me Worry" picture on the door was 
famous throughout the School. Before a cheering crowd of School 
mates, John and the other "Princeton Puddle Jumpers" (Rog Proctor 
and Dave Ross) showed their skill on the diving board. Of course, 
John's serious winter sport was hockey. For his ability as a defense- 
man he gained a full colour on the Bigside squad. He was a starting 
end on the first football team but a knee injury, unfortunately, side- 
lined him for the season. It should also be mentioned that "Arbo's" 
picture appeared in "The Globe and Mail" for his feat in collecting 
the largest piece of dough in the Pancake Toss. John is now at the 
University of Manitoba taking Architecture. We wish you the best 
of luck, "Gobblenob." 

Beattie, J. P. ('52-'56). J. P. "Benny" Beattie came to us in 1952 
from Selwyn House in Montreal. He often-times paced the library, 
reminding us of its purpose. At other times we might suddenly see 
a flash which served to remind us that the candid camera man was 
nearby. Benny imported his Quebec French into the French Club 
and also lent his talents to "Record" work. Not to be forgotten is 
the part Benny contributed to the Choir. He won Littleside colours in 
soccer and in his final year was a captain of a Rabbit hockey league 
team. He completed his career at T.C.S. by serving as a House Officer. 
At McGill now, Benny is taking an Arts Course, in which we wish 
him all kinds of success. 

Blake, K. A. ('52-'56). Ken was appointed a House Prefect in 
his final year and helped greatly around the School with discipline 
and the day to day problems that arise in the natural course of 
events. He took an average interest in athletics, playing football in 
the Middleside League and before that added his support to the 
Soccer side. His chief contribution to the School however, was his 
work on The Record. For two years he was head typist and carried 
out this very arduous task with admirable efficiency. It was due 
greatly to Ken's work, that the massive amounts of typing were 

finished in tim? to meet the deadline. His quiet efficiency and steady 
loliabihty will prove of great value to him, in all his undertakings. 
All the best, Ken! 

Bonnyrastlo, M, K. ('52-'56). Mike came to us from Oakwood 
Collegiate in '52, and from the first moment he passed those Bethune 
doors he did very well for himself. That fall he played Littleside foot- 
ball and went on to play Rabbit league hockey. Many of his extra 
hours were spent doing excellent work in the woodwork shop. Mike 
also played Littleside cricket. Next autumn Mike was the captain 
of the Littleside football team. He joined the Photographic Club at 
Christmas and for the remaining years in the School he shot many 
excellent pictures for "The Record." That winter Mike was a member 
of the Junior Swimming team. The following year he played snap 
for Bigside football, winning a half colour and made the Senior swim- 
ming team.. In the Little Big Four swimming meet he came third 
in the diving. He also became Vice-President of the Photographic 
Society and Photographic Editor of "The Record." In Mike's final 
year lie played Bigside football, getting a full colour. He was Presi- 
dent of the Photographic Society and the Woodwork Club and also 
Head Librarian. In swimming, Mike won the Little Big Four diving 
competition and hence well earned his colour. On Speech Day, Mike 
was awarded the Science Prize, the Poetry Prize and the Jubilee 
Exhibition for Mathematics. For his good work while at the School, 
Mike was appointed House Officer. Best of luck at Varsity, Mike, 
and drop in for a visit some time soon. 

Boughner, W. F. ('52-'56). For eight years through the sober halls 
of T.C.S. walked this breezy Epicurian of note. Half of these well- 
spent years were served in Boulden House. There Bill had a note- 
v.orthy career, playing on four first teams, and captaining the cricket 
team in his last year. He was announced the co-winner of the Paterson 
Trophy in the same year. In '52 he entered the still more sober halls 
of Brent House, and managed to play Littleside football, hockey, 
gym and cricket of "fvill-colour" calibre. In tune with his nature he 
became an enthusiastic trumpeter in the Cadet Band. Never of 
monstrous physical proportions, the next year Bill again played foot- 
ball and hockey for Littleside. This time he was captain and vice- 
captain respectively. In the same year he advanced to a full colour 
Middleside cricket player. In addition, he expanded his horizons by 
writing Features for the Record. Bill played Middleside football and 
hockey for the following and final two years, becoming vice-captain 
of hockey. This home-stretch also saw Bill working for the Record, 
a veteran bandsman, and a Sacristan. One of the more promising 
members of the fifth form. Bill was appointed a House Officer in 
the spring. One of his gi-eatest and most appreciated jobs last year 
was as Tieasurer of The Pat Moss Club. Apparently Bill is continuing 
his financial aspirations at the Royal Bank of Canada in London, 
though he is keeping up his education at night school. All the best, 


Budg:e, P. J. ('52-'56). Peter came to Buulden House in 1949 
and, after three years there, he joined the Senior School. As a New 
Boy, he obtained Littleside colours in football, cricket and hockey 
and was captain of the hockey team. The next year saw him on 
Middleside hockey, co-captain and the most valuable player on the 
Middleside football team. He then graduated to the first hockey team 
for two years, as well as to the tennis team. He was on "The 
Record" staff for four years, in the French club for two years and 
in his last year he showed himself to be an excellent leader of the 
band. He became a Brent House Prefect and fulfilled his job, as 
such, very well. He plans to go into commerce at McGill and our 
heartiest good wishes go with him. 

Barns, H. M, ('51-'56). It is a most difficult task to write any- 
thing that might be termed a brief biography about Mike. His field 
of activity was decidedly vast. Hei'b launched his T.C.S. football 
career by captaining the Littleside team in his Second Form year. 
By his final year, Mike was vice-captain of Bigside and in this, his 
third year on the team, he won a Distinction Cap. Switching to the 
winter term we find that Mike was known both as a gymnast and a 
hockey plaj'er. He gained his gym colours in Third Form and was 
captain of the gym team the next year. In his final year Herb was 
chosen as the best gymnast in the School. He also played Bigside 
hockey for three years and won a well deserved Distinction Cap in 
his final year. In Fifth Form Herb became a House Officer and Flight 
Lieutenant in charge of Bethune Cadets. In '55-'56 Mike was associate 
Head Prefect and C.O. of the Cadet Corps. On top of his duties in 
the Cadet Corps, Mike also found time to play Bigside cricket in his 
last two years. His name has been added to the list of winners of 
the Bronze Medal, regarded as the top School award. In his final 
year Mike also won the Grand Challenge Cup. This was the second 
time he had received this award, while on Sports Day he set a new 
record for the senior hurdles. During his time at the School, Mike 
was a stage hand, a member of the Glee Club, the Record staff, the 
entertainment committee and a Sacristan. Fi'om the day he entered 
T.C.S. Mike showed that he was a going concern and in his last year 
ho gave strong and aggressive leadership in most sides of School life. 
He seemed always to be in good heart. All your many friends here 
at T.C.S. wish you the best of luck at Cornell, Mike. 

Campbell, A. M. ('52-'56). There are people whom it is a pleasure 
to know, and there are people whom it is a privilege to know. Mac 
was one of those extraordinary individuals whom it was both a real 
pleasure and privilege to be acquainted with. His career at T.C.S. 
has teen, and will be, described as a thorough success. As an athlete, 
Mac was an extremely good one. In his two years at Boulden House, 
he won four first team colours, football, hockey, gym, and cricket, 
and captained their football team. Moving up to the Senior School 
in '52, "Nosey" won Littleside colours in those same sports. The next 


year Mac plunged directly to his Bigside football colour, and brought 
hockey and cricket up to par the following year. In his last year Mac 
captained Bigside football, winning the Most Valuable Player Award, 
The Kicking and Catching Cup, and a Distinction Cap, and pulled 
more than his weight on the Hockey First and Cricket Eleven. He 
topped it al! off last Speech Day when he won the Jack Maynard 
Trophy for leadership in athletics. But the athlete was only a part 
of Mac Campbell. He was a member of the Choir for three years, 
and a stagehand for the same. He was President of the Junior De- 
bating Society in Fourth Form, Vice-President of the Senior Debating 
Society in Sixth Form. One of the School's most formidable debaters, 
Mac had the further distinction of being chosen to represent the 
School as guest speaker at the annual meeting of the Toronto Ladies' 
Gviild. He added another "first" when he became President of the 
newly formed Pat Moss Club. In his last year he was President of 
the Political Science Club, Secretary of the French Club, the Feature 
Editor of the Record, an ardent warbler in the Glee Club, and a groaner 
in the famed T.C.S. quartet. The really significant point is that Mac 
did a tremendous job in each of these capacities. In Boulden House, 
Mac was the co-winner of the Hamilton Bronze Medal, their most 
valued award. In the early months of his Fifth Form year he was 
made a House Officer, and last year was associate Head Prefect and 
Bronze Medal winner. He handled each of these responsibilities with 
dependability, efficiency, good-nature, and tact. As if all this wasn't 
enough, Mac was a first class honour student, winning the Smith- 
Cape Bursary entering his last year. But the most important aspect 
of all was Mac, the person, one of the most genuinely liked and 
respected fellows at T.C.S. Unobtrusive by nature, Mac's tremendous 
vitality, perseverance. School spirit, and ability were outstanding in 
an outstanding year, and we wish him every success in anything his 
ambitions might carry him to. Eamus Nose! 

Caryor, D. S. ('52-'56). After two years in Boulden House, where 
he won his colours in football and hockey, "Herman" entered Brent 
House in the fall of 1952. He immediately started his successful Senior 
School career by winning his coloui-s in both Littleside football and 
Littleside hockey and turned out for track in the spring. In his second 
year he won colours on Middleside football and Littleside hockey, 
and again ran for the track team in the spring. During his third 
year Don played Bigside football in which he gained a half-team 
colour and during the winter he won his colour in Middleside hockey. 
He was appointed a member of the Pat Moss Club and was a member 
of the French Club. In his final year Don won his full Bigside colour 
in football and was awarded a Distinction Cap. He was elected co- 
vice-captain of Middleside Hockey, and served as Flight-Sergeant 
in the Cadet Corps. For these contributions to School life and his 
qualities of leadership, Don was appointed a School Prefect. From 
here he hopes to enter McGill. We wish him the best of luck in 
the years ahead. 


Chauvin, R. A. ('53-'56). Ralph Chauvin, more commonly known 
as Chausse, entered Boulden House in 1950. In 1953 Ralph moved 
to Brent House where, fortunately, he found the doorways sufficiently 
high. During his years as a Brentite, Chausse won hockey colours 
on Littleside, Middleside and Bigside. Some of his other extra- 
curricular activities included the French Club, and "The Record" staff. 
Ralph was another of the Quebec Frenchmen who lent his talents 
to the circle of linguists organized by Mr. Bishop. To say that Ralph 
was well liked would be a gross understatement. In addition to his 
many friends at T.C.S., we have evidence that the females have a 
great attraction for Chausse. Keep the curly locks combed, Ralph. 
Switching to a serious vein, we wish you the best in your study of 

Cochrane, M. H. ('55-'56). Mike Cochrane was a member of the 
famous four-manner on bottom flat Bethune. He began his T.C.S. 
career by ably assisting Derek Drummond with the many duties 
v;hich accompany the job of Bigside football manager. During the 
winter term, Mike played on the basketball team where he hung 
up his share of points. Mike also participated in Record work as 
a sports writer. We congratulate him on his examination results 
and send him our best wishes in his further studies at Western. 

Colman, L. T. ('52-'56), "Sharpie" came to T.C.S. (Brent House) 
from the Bahamas in the fall of 1952. He participated actively in 
School activities right from the start. In his first year, Lionel played 
Littleside soccer and was on the Junior swimming team. During the 
following two years, he played on the Middleside soccer team. For 
three seasons, Lionel continued as a first-rate swimmer, and in both 
his Fifth and Sixth Form years, was a member of the first swimming 
team. In his last two years. Sharpie's interests spread to other School 
activities. In the Choir for two years, he supported it faithfully. He 
also took part in the French Club, and the Photographic Society 
where his photographic talent assisted the Record with some really 
excellent photographs. Although we shall miss Sharpie, the School 
can be sure that he will do well at Tilnity College (U. of T.) where 
he is now studying. Best of luck, Lionel. 

Connell, W. B. ('51-'56). Bruce arrived in Bethune after a year 
in Boulden House. He was on Littleside football for two years, 
winning a full colour in his second year. In these two years he was 
also a member of the Junior Debating Society. In his last two years 
he p'ayed on Middleside football where he gained his full colour. An 
active member of "The Record" staff, he was also a member of the 
San'.or Debating Society and in his final year, was made a House 
Officer. Bruce is going to Queen's to study medicine where we wish 
him every success. 

Creery, P. A. ('SS-'SG). Although the "kid" wasn't too large 
physically* he proved to be interested in athletics, obtaining his Little- 
side and Middleside soccer colours. When the grand change to foot- 
ball arrived, the kid took to the game with zest and proved to be a 
capable player in the league. In the winter he played rabbit league 
hockey every season. A first rate student throughout his career at 
School, he did very well in his senior rnatric last June. He was a 
member of the French club for two years, the political science club, 
the electronics club and a member of the Record staff. For all his 
efforts at the School, Phil was made a House Officer. We all wish 
Phil good luck and know that he will succeed in whatever he under- 
takes in the future. 

Dalgeish, G. R. ('51-'56). "Dag" as he was best known, arrived 
heie in the fall of 1951 with his goalie pads, which were as big as 
he was. As an excellent citizen of Bethune House, he immediately 
took part in a large number of School activities. His New Boy year 
saw him win the highly coveted Magee Cup. Littleside hockey, foot- 
ball and gym colours were also awarded to him and on Sports Day 
of his first year he, along with the other members of the Junior 
Bethune Relay, broke a record. We lost Dag to the natives of South 
Africa in 1952-53 and for some time we wondered if we would ever 
see him again. However, much to our delight, he returned in 1955 
and, among other successes, was voted "the most improved cadet." 
After winning Middleside football colours for two years, he obtained 
a half first team colour in this sport. Bigside hockey colours also 
followed Middleside colours and his remarkable I'ecord of yielding 
only three games out of 30 in four years will always be remembered 
in the T.C.S. hockey records. A Distinction Cap was awarded to him 
for his outstanding job in the Bigside nets in his last year. He was 
also a very helpful member- of the Pat Moss Club, and a member 
of the Political Science Club. For his contributions to the School, 
Dag was rewarded by being made a House Officer. We shall miss 
him greatly and our best wishes are extended to him in his course 
at McMaster. 

De!a<'our, J. M. ('56). "Deux" popped into T.C.S. for the two 
terms following the Christmas holidays of '55, entering Sixth Form 
as a Bethunite. He was an ardent skier and soon came to be con- 
sidered the best in the School. In the spring term, he held an interest 
in track and field. However, owing to a slight injury, he was unable 
to keep up his practising. John plans to go either to McGill or the 
University of Toronto, to enter an Arts course. We wish him well 
in his future undertakings. 

Driimmond, D. A. ('52-'56). Four years ago, early in the month 
of September, there was a great amount of barking outside the School. 
Quickly, the doois of Bethune House opened, and, seeing his new 
home, the "shaggy dog" entered, soon becoming one of the School's 
most populai' boys. On the fields, "Shag's" great enthusiasm foi- 


soccer soon found him a place on the Littleside soccer team in his 
New Boy year. Not satisfied with soccer alone, "Shag" branched 
out into other sports. In squash, he became the New Boy champion 
and Junior runner-up, and later in the year became Junior runner- 
up in tennis, also. In his second year at T.C.S., Derek played for the 
first tennis team, and continued playing on that team for the next 
two years. He played on the 1954 co-champion team of the Little 
Big Four. He again played soccer, this time earning his Middleside 
colour. In squash, "Shag" was the captain of the second team, and 
sixth man on the Little Big Four championship team. He was also 
the School's Junior squash champion. In his Fifth Form year, Derek 
was a member of the Little Big Four championship squash team, 
and was the Senior runner-up in the School tournament. In Montreal, 
he won the "under 18" Quebec Squash Tournament, and repeated his 
performance the following year. He was also the runner-up in Senior 
tennis. In cricket, "Shag" was the Bigside wicket-keeper, and earned 
his exti'a colour. Derek's final year at T.C.S. was certainly his big 
year. He again played on the tennis team and was captain of the 
squash team. He proved to be an excellent manager for the School's 
Little Big Four co-champion football team. In squash, he again won 
the "under 18" Quebec Squash Tournament, and was a semi-finalist 
in both the Ontario Junior Squash and Canadian Junior Squash 
Tournaments. Derek took an active part in many other School 
activities besides sports. In the Chapel, he was both a Sacristan and 
a Crucifer. He was also a member of the Glee Club. In his Sixth 
Form year, Derek played an important part in our Cadet Inspection. 
Working hard for The Record, he made an excellent Sports Editor 
during his tenure of office. For Derek's many accomplishments while 
at School, he was rewarded with the well-earned position of School 
Prefect. We v^ish him the best of luck in whatever the future holds 
for him. 

Dunlap, D. L. C. ('52-'56). Coming to T.C.S. in the fall of 1948, 
Dave soon proved to be an e.xcellent sportsman, and a good student. 
Beginning his career in Boulden House, he was soon made a "C- 
dormer." Dave was also awarded colours in soccer, football, hockey 
and gym. Entering the Senior School in 1952, he continued as a 
superb athlete. He won full colours in Littleside, Middleside and 
Bigside football. Dave also won, during his four years in the Senior 
School, colours in Middleside and Bigside hockey, and Littleside and 
Middleside colours in gym. In the Oxford cup, he got Middleside 
colours once, and half colours twice. In his second year, Dave was 
elected secretary of the Junior Debating Society, and in his Fifth 
Form year, secretary of the Pat Moss Club. He also won a flying 
scholarship in his third year. For his many achievements, Dave was 
appointed a House Officer after Christmas. In his Sixth Form year, 
he was a Choir member, a Sacristan, Head Librarian, and Literary 
Editor of the Record. He was also secretary of the Senior Debating 
Society, an officer of the Cadet Corps, and a School Prefect, a well- 
deserved honour. Dave is now at Queen's, taking a course in medicine. 
After Speech Day he was given an Award of Merit for his strength 
of character and contributions to School life. The boys of the School 
confidently predict a fine career ahead of him. 


Eaton, R. F. ('51 -'56). Robbie entered Bethune House in 1952 
after a year in Boulden House. He joined in many athletic activities 
including Littleside and Middleside football, in both of which he 
received colours. H>? played basketball, winning- a Middleside colour 
in 1955 and an extra Bigside colour in his Sixth Form year. At the 
same time he was a valuable member of the swimming team where 
he obtained a half Bigside colour. Bob was a French Club member 
as well as a Chorister and Glee Club member. Although he appeared 
quiet and unobtrusive, Bob's witty and popular House Notes for "The 
Record" showed an alert and lively sense of humour. For his many 
contributions to School life "Skreet" was made a House Officer. Our 
best wishes follow him to McGill where he is taking a General Arts 

Forrie, R. K. ('51-'56). After a year in Boulden House "Beebes" 
entered Bethune House in the fall of 1951. In his New Boy year he 
won his Littleside colour in football and was a member of the swim- 
ming team. From there he advanced to Middleside football and gained 
his Middleside colour in swimming. During his third year Bob won 
his full Bigside colours in both football and swimming and was a 
member of a strong Intermediate track team of that spring. He also 
joined "The Record" staff and became a member of the Choir and 
Glee Club. He repeated all these accomplishments a year later in 
his Fifth Form year and won the Daykin Cup for the highest 
aggregate in the Senior events on Sports Day. As captain of the 
track team, he competed in the Hamilton relays. Because of his fine 
contribution to the School, Bob was made a House Officer that spiing 
and was also on the executive of the first Pat Moss Club and a 
member of the debating team. In his last year Bob was appointed 
a School Prefect early in the fall and he went on to become co-vice- 
captain of our championship football team, and won his full colours 
for the third year in a row. He was awarded a football Distinction 
Cap for his fine play in the line. During the winter he captained 
the swimming team, was awarded a Distinction Cap, receiving the 
Pat Osier Cup as the Best Swimmer. In track Bob captained the 
team, tied for the Daykin Cup and set a record in the senior 100 
yard dash of 10.1 seconds. He was also School News editor of "The 
Record," and a member of the Political Science Club. On Speech Day, 
he was awarded the Jim McMullen Memoiial Trophy, special Choir 
prize and was runner-up for the Grand Challenge Cup. In the Cadet 
Corps, Bob served as a Flight Lieutenant. After doing so well here, 
we know that Bob will be successful in Meds at the U. of T. and 
our best wishes for success go with him. 

FitzGerald, D. J. V. ('55-'56). "Fitz" came to us in Sixth Form 
last year and was very popular in his one year at T.C.S., airiving 
by way of Stowe School in England. An avid reader with a boundless 
enthusiasm for literature, he was at his best in a lively dinner table 
conver.sation. It was natuial, therefore, to find him a member of "The 
Record" staff and he received a prize for one of his excellent con-

tribiitions to "The Record." He was also a member of the Debating 
Society and the Political Science Club. An actor with a natural 
flair, he joined the Dramatic Society and took part in both the 
Christmas and the Easter plays. In the sports world, Fitz played 
Middleside league football and Rabbit league hockey. This year Fitz 
is taking Arts at the University of British Columbia where our good 
wishes follow him. 

Gilbert, J. N. ('53-'56). In the fall of 1953 "Dicky" left his home 
town of Stamford, Connecticut, and headed north across the border 
to T.C.S. He entered Brent House in his New Boy year and played 
Littleside "B" football. He played on the junior basketball team and 
in the spring turned his back on baseball, not without some mis- 
givings, and won his colours in Littleside cricket. In his second and 
Fifth Form year, John won his colours in Middleside football and 
basketball in the sporting theatre, and he was a member of the Senior 
Debating Society, taking part in inter-school debates. In his last year 
John was elected vice-captain of the Senior basketball team and won 
his full Bigside colour in that sport. He was also a member of the 
Senior Debating team, Political Science Club, Choir and Glee club, 
and was co-sports editor of "The Record" as well as a Sacristan. As 
a result, John was appointed a House Officer. He is furthering his 
education at the University of Pennsylvania in Business where we 
wish him the best of luck and hope he returns to see us soon. 

Ham, T. J. ('53-'56). In 1952 T. J. ("Hammie") Ham entered 
what I shall call the J.S. (at the risk of incurring the wrath of the 
present day inhabitants of Boulden House). All those who know 
Trevor realize how much he enjoys singing. In the J.S. Hammie 
added his touch to the Choir and there he had a chance to practice 
his famous harmony. He also gained football colours in this section 
of the School before entering the ranks of S.S. New Boys. As a 
member of last year's Bombside (Middleside) squad, Trevoi' gained 
extra colours. Of course when it came to gym, Ham and Egg (his 
room-mate) were really tops. For two years running Hammie won 
his Bigside gym colour. Hammie, the dramatist, performed equally 
well in maid's skirts and in an army uniform. The first part mentioned 
was naturally portrayed in his earlier years in the dramatic society. 
In his final year as an actor Trevor, now treasurer of the society, 
won an acting prize for his contribution to Journey's End as Lieutenant 
Osborne. Trevor was also a member of the Photographic Club and a 
Sacristan. He well deserved the post of House Prefect which he 
received in his final year. Hammie is now at Trinity College taking 
Medicine. We feel sure he is bound to meet with success. 


Hyland. W. A. H. ('52-'56). Bill first made his mark at T.C.S. 
in Boultien House where he spent two years. During his stay there 
he won his colours in football, hockey, gym and cricket. He entered 
Brent House in September, 1952, and started out on the right foot 
by winning his Littleside coloius in football, hockey, gym and cricket 
during the School year. Next autumn Bill played Middleside football 
and hockey in the winter, winning an extra colour and a full colour 
respectively. He also won an extra Bigside colour in gym, and during 
the spring, an extra Bigside colour in cricket. He also added the Junior 
Aggregate on Sports Day. Bill was outstanding in athletics during 
his third year at the School. He played on the Bigside football, hockey, 
gym, and cricket teams, winning full colours in football, gym and 
cricket, and extra colours in hockey. That year, he was also runner- 
up for the Grand Challenge Cup and a member of the Senior De- 
bating and Political Science Clubs. For all his achievements he was 
appointed a House Officer that winter. Early in his Sixth Form year, 
Bill was appointed a School Prefect for his accomplishments in the 
School and his leadership qualities. He again won full colours on 
Bigside football despite a knee injury which kept him out of all the 
exhibition games, and prevented him from playing hockey. In the 
spiing, however. Bill again won a full colovu- in cricket. He also tied 
lor the Daykin Cup in the Senior events on Sports Day, setting a 
new record in the discus. In the Cadet Corps, he was a Flight- 
Lieutenant, and was the Officer Commanding the Bi'ent House 
squadron. Bill has entered an Arts course at Western University 
where we wish him all the best in his future endeavours. 

Irwin, S. Van E. ('53-'56). "Eggy" entered Bethune House in 
1953, after two years in Boulden House, where, among other accomp- 
lishments, he was Grand Champion in track and field. In his New 
Boy year he won his Littleside football colour and his Middleside 
gym colour. In his second year he won Middleside football. Middle- 
side basketball as well as Bigside Gym colours. Eggy was appointed 
a House Officer in his final year in which he also served as a member 
of "The Record" staff and the Debating Society. Steve was the 
leading exponent of track and field during his time at T.C.S. As a 
result of his consistent training and hard work he was Junior and 
Intermediate Track Champion, and broke seven records. We wish 
him the best of luck at U. of T. where he is studying architecture. 

Jenkins, W. A. K. (•52-'56). "Chico" came to Bethune House in 
tlie fall of '52, soon starting his career at T.C.S. by winning first, 
his Littleside colours in football and in the winter term, half first team 
colours in swimming. In the spring, Bill tuined out for track, 
equalling the Intermediate hic,h-jump record of 5' 3". He also ran for 
the Intermediate track team in the U.C.C. relays. As a "second year," 
Bill won Middle.side football colours and, in swimming, full Bigside 

colours. In track, he was a member of the Intermediate relay team 
which set a record at the U.C.C. relays. "Chico" also set a new In- 
termediate high-jump record of 5' 4". In his second year, Bill was 
also a member of the Choir and the Junior Debating Society. In his 
third year at T.C.S., he won full Bigside colours in football and swim- 
ming. He was a member of the 880 yard House relay team which 
set a new record on Sports Day. He also won the Senior High Jump. 
In addition, he was a member of the Senior Debating Society, a 
Sacristan, a stage hand, and a member of the Past Moss Ski Club. 
Because of his contributions to the School, he was appointed a House 
Officer that spring. Bill was made a School Prefect early in his final 
year and went on to win his full Bigside colours and Distinction Caps 
ill football and swimming, being appointed vice-captain of the swim- 
ming team. He was also a member of the Debating Society, a member 
of the Choir and a Crucifer. Serving as a flight lieutenant in the 
Cadet Corps, he won the challenge trophy as best cadet and was 
head of victorious Bethune House on Inspection Day. Bill is headed 
for Arts at the University of Western Ontario where we wish him 
the best of luck in his future endeavours. 

Kerr, D. W. ('aS-'SG). "Duke" cannonballed into T.C.S. in the 
autumn of '55 along with the three other members of the infamous 
Bethune House bottom flat four manner. In time he established a 
widespread notoriety which was a characteristic of this unique four- 
some. During his brief stay at T.C.S. , he managed to get his Middle- 
side colours in basketball and win his Bronze Medal in life-saving. 
Don also made several worthwhile contributions to The Record. After 
leaving T.C.S., "Duke" ricocheted into Carleton College in Ottawa 
where he is taking a General Arts Course at present. Best of luck, 

Labatt, R. H. C. ('52-'56). Robin came straight to the Senior 
School in '52, and from the first he took a keen interest in School 
life. In his final year his participation in the Photographic Club, 
Glee Club, Debating Society and Choir was rewarded by his appoint- 
ment as a House Officer. Active also in other phases of School life, 
he received colours in second team football and hockey as well as a 
coaching award. A successful year completed, we wish him success 
in his University life. Robin is now at Waterloo College and will 
likely go on to Western after this year. 

LeMoine, A. G. ('58-'56). Tony LeMoine, better known as "Leo," 
joined T.C.S. in September, 1953, when he became a member of Brent 
House. In his first year at the School, Tony was awarded extra 
colours in Littleside football. In the winter term, he did gym, again 
earning Littleside colours. Upon returning to Port Hope for his 
Fifth Form year, Tony went one step further, both in football and 


gym. He played on the Middleside "B" squad, and competed on the 
Middleside gym team. During his third and final year at T.C.S., he 
could not play football, but managed to take an active part in it by 
assuming the job of football manager for our Middleside team. Tony 
was also in charge of Middleside league equipment. In his last two 
years, he was a member of the French Club and became a prominent 
member of the Debating Society. Part way through the year, Tony 
was appointed a House Officer, and aided the School greatly. When 
Speech Day came, he was awarded the VIB Religious Knowledge 
prize. The School wishes him all the best in his future studies. 

Little, J. E. ('53-*56). John "Frenchie" Little came to T.C.S. 
from Quebec in 1953 and joined the ranks of Brent House. During 
his three years at the School, he was "an athlete formidable" and in 
his last year was captain of Middleside football and hockey. He also 
was an expert skier, and his face was a familiar one on the ski trails 
both here and around Quebec. John played the drums, first in the 
Cadet band, secondly in the famous School orchestra and he was 
also one of the few who remembered how to play "God Save the 
Queen" on Inspection Day. But the rhythm in him really became 
apparent at his informal jam sessions in the hall along with maestro 
Adam Saunders on the piano. Because of his all-round abilities, he 
became a House Prefect. Now he is taking Mechanical Engineering 
at McGill and is thinking of going into the lumbering business where 
we are sure he will do well. The very best of luck, John. 

Long, E. A. ('52-'56). Eddie came to us from Forest Hill Collegiate 
in 1952, becoming a member of Brent House. In Ed's New Boy year, 
he won full colours in both Littleside football and Middleside hockey. 
He joined the Junior Debating Society, in which he participated 
actively for two years. In his second year, Eddie was unable to play 
football owing to an operation. Instead, he became manager of the 
Middleside team. Returning to sports in the winter term, however, 
he played for the Bigside hockey team, earning half-colours. That 
year, Ed joined the Choir, and many times the School heard his 
excellent tenor voice in solos during special Chapel services. For his 
last two years, he held the position of Head Choir Boy. In Ed's Fifth 
Form year, he played on two Bigside teams, getting colours in both 
hockey and football. He was also on the Executive of the Pat Moss 
Ski Club. Towards the end of the j'ear, he was appointed a House 
Officer. During his last year at T.C.S., Eddie was a School Prefect, 
again played on Bigside football and hockey, this time awarded 
Distinction Caps in both and elected captain of the hockey team. 
Piominent in track and field, he holds the School's high jump record. 
He was also a typist foi- The Record, a stage-hand, and a member of 
the Glee Club. In the Chapel, he was both a Crucifer and a Sacristan. 
As a member of the famous trio (formerly a quartet), he would 
often take part in enteitaining the School at vaiiety nights and even 
at School dances. The entiie School sends best wishes, Ed. 


McQuarrie, D. I, ('55-'56). "Pop McQuartz" came to us in the 
fall of '55 and he became a member of the famous Middle flat museum 
in Bi'ent House run by John. He became a member of the Sixth Form 
and a keen supporter of the Political Science Club. As a result of 
his experience gained there, some very long and serious discussions 
were heard emanating from his table during the evening meal. We 
wish Ian every success in his future courses at University. 

Meighen, M. A. ('53-'56). Mike's three years in Brent House are 
a story of ever-increasing success. He won an Entrance Scholarship 
and kept up a high standard of work throughout his years at T.C.S. 
In his first year he was kept busy receiving Littleside colours in 
soccer, hockey, gym, and cricket, and to top his New Boy year, 
he won the Arnold Massey Prize, awarded to the winner of the New 
Boy squash tournament. His second year was a repeat performance, 
only one step higher on the ladder. He gained colours in Middleside 
soccer and squash and was captain of Middleside cricket. As a result 
Mike won the Second Year Challenge Trophy. In his last year, Mike 
stood on the top rvmg of the ladder in every way. To start the year 
off, he was appointed a Sacristan, and President of the Senior De- 
bating Society, the Dramatic Society and the French Club. He played 
Middleside football, and received colours in Bigside squash, where he 
was particularly outstanding, being runner-up in the senior squash 
tournament and bringing honour to the School by placing second in 
the Quebec under 18 squash tournament. Mike also won colours on 
Bigside cricket. Not to be found lacking in any field, Mike became a 
sergeant in the Cadet Corps. As a successful finish to a successful year, 
Speech Day saw Mike, long since made a House Prefect, walk off with 
the Public Speaking Prize, the oral French Prize and the Butterfield 
Trophy. He plans eventually to go to McGill to study law, but this 
year he is at the University of Geneva where, besides becoming an 
accomplished linguist, he will most certainly fill the slopes with his 
cry of "track" or the appropriate French equivalent. So leaves another 
Old Boy the School is proud to remember. Good luck, Art! 

Mitchell, D. C. M. ('52-'56). "Mitch" came from Narwich Nest, 
Bermuda, in 1952 and entered Bethune House. He showed great in- 
terest in soccer, obtaining Littleside colours in his second year and 
going on in Fifth Form to gain a well deserved place as captain of 
Middleside. His powerful back-stroke soon earned him a place on 
the swimming team, in which he won a half Bigside colour in his 
Sixth Form season; for two years he was also a valuable player on 
Middleside cricket. Mitch's extra-curricular activities included en- 
thusiastic membership in the Junior Debating Society and the French 
Club. Now at McGill taking General Arts, Mitch intends to enter a 
business career, in which we wish him the greatest success. 


Mit<'heU, I. S. M. ('51-'56), "Mitch" was first seen entering 
Bethune House in the fall of '51. Right from the start he became 
very active in spoils. In his first year, when only in Second Form, 
he gained his full Middleside colours in soccer, swimming, and cricket. 
In his Third Form year "Mitch" advanced to earn his half first team 
colour in soccer, his Middleside colour again in swimming and a place 
on the Bigside cricket team. In his Fourth Form year Ian continued 
his spectacular career. In this year he was on Bigside soccer, swim- 
ming and cricket, being elected to the vice-captaincy of the latter. 
In Fifth Form "Mitch" was vice-captain of soccer, captain of cricket 
and a member of the second team squash. In his final year at T.C.S. 
Ian achieved his full Middleside football colours, a Distinction Cap in 
cricket and earned his full Bigside colours in squash. "Mitch" was 
always a great asset to the School and we are sorry to see him go. 
We will miss his characteristic laugh and wonderful sense of humour. 
He is at Western University this year and we wish him the best of 
luck, trusting he will withstand the onslaught of the opposite sex, 
and still have time to return for an occasional visit! 

Nanton, A. A. ('51-'56). "Ton" came from the U.S.A. to enter 
Boulden House under the new 1947 import quota and spent his first 
two years becoming big for the football team. The next year he 
played on the J.S. first team where he was awarded his colours 
for football. In the fall of '51 after three successful years in the 
J.S., Tony moved up a conference to the Senior School where he 
and his football made a home in top dorm Bethune and Second Form. 
The following year he received his full colours on Middleside foot- 
ball. In '53 "Ton" moved up a league again and helped anchor down 
the Trinity line in a successful Bigside season for which he received 
full colours. The next fall found him an outstanding member of a 
Championship team. For his virtual sixty minute work in each Little 
Big Four game he was again awarded his full colours and a Distinction 
Cap. His active participation in Sports Day events was climaxed 
with a record distance in the shot put. He was a keen member of 
The Record staff and the Debating Society of '56. "Ton" was also 
one of the most popular and likeable members of the Sixth Form 
and for all his obvious attributes he was made a School Prefect. Our 
best wishes in all your undertakings, Tony. 

Noble, W. J. ('52-'56). Bill Noble ended a very full four year 
career at T.C.S. as a Officer. In his New Boy year in the 
Senior School, he was a Littleside standout in all three major sports 
and was captain of both Littleside "B" football and Littleside cricket. 
To top this off, he won the Margaret Ketchum Prize. Bill was, of 
course, a familiar figure to us all on the basketball floor. He gained 
extra colours in this spoil both on Middleside and Bigside. Again in 
the field of sport, "Knobs" second year in the S.S. saw him as vice- 


captain of Middleside cricket. Bill was a member of the Political 
Science Club, a Sacristan, a member of The Record and he was com- 
monly known to all in dramatics as "The Colonel". We send our best 
wishes. Bill, in your further studies at McGill. 

Outerbridge, D, R. (•54-*56). Last June, Cy left T.C.S. after two 
years in Bethune House. Diu'ing this time, he became co-winner of 
the First-and Second-Year Challenge Trophies. A House Officer in 
his Sixth Form year, he was in charge of maintenance of our Ski 
Camp, and was later on the Inspection Day Dance Committee. 
Scholastically, he was accepted for McGill on his Junior Matric, 
winning the Spanish Prize in Fifth Form. It was in the field of sports, 
however, that "Citation" excelled. On Bigside hockey, he was vice- 
captain and voted the most valuable player and held, as well. Dis- 
tinction Caps in both hockey and football. Now in General Arts at 
McGill, we hear he is majoring in hockey. The School wishes him 
the best of luck in the future. 

Overholt, B. M. C. ('Sl-'SG). Bluett's outstanding career at T.C.S. 
began five years ago in the fall of 1951. Very much at home in the 
gym. Bluett, in his New Boy year, won the Littleside trophy for gym. 
Although for two years he was captain of the Bigside gym team, in 
his last year he acted as coach because of an injury. Twice he won 
the Best Gymnast trophy, as well as a Distinction Cap. A rugged 
football player, Bluett played on Littleside and Middleside, and in 
his last year was of much assistance to Mr. Landry in coaching Little- 
side, for which he won a coaching award. As a hockey player, he 
played for Littleside during his first two years, after which he focused 
most of his attention on gym. Bluett was also a prominent member 
of the Debating Society. Besides this, he was a Sacristan and a 
member of "The Record" staff. Bluett completed his Sixth Form 
year successfully, being made a House Prefect for his many con- 
tributions to School life. He is now studying medicine at the Uni- 
versity of Toronto. We all wish him the best of luck in his future 

Proctor, R. C. ('51-'56). "Merv" first sauntered into the august 
halls of T.C.S. in 1951 when he entered Brent House. During his stay 
at T.C.S. Rog distinguished himself as a racquet sport man as he won 
both his Middleside and Bigside colours in Squash. He also played 
Littleside football, switched to soccer and then returned in his final 
year to football and won his extra Bigside colour. Rog could also 
be seen around Christmas and Easter high up in the rafters of the 
gym as he was one of the School's most efficient stage hands. As a 
result of these accomplishments, Rog was appointed a House Officer 
in his final year. Roger is now attending the University of Western 
Ontario where we wish him all the best in the future. 


Robb, R. ('55-'56). In the one year that Rusty was at T.C.S. he 
proved himself to be a credit to the School. He did so much in one 
year here that he was appointed a House Officer last spring. 
Scholastically he resided in VIA. In athletics, Russel was an out- 
standing end on our Bigside football team, and played a strong game 
on Bigside hockey. Also active in extra-curricular events, he was 
both an avid member of the Political Science Club, and also responsible 
for the best party that the House Officers' Common Room had seen 
in many a day. This fall Rusty will join the United States Marines 
and following his stretch there, hopes to go to Harvard. We all wish 
Rustv the best of luck in the future. 

Robinson, J. E. ('54-*56). "Midge" entered Bethune House in 
September. 1954. Playing for our Bigside football team, he was a 
fountain of humour, and earned extra Bigside colours in his final 
season. In the winter term. Midge played on the basketball team, 
of which he was co-captain. Last year, on Speech Day, he was awarded 
the Norman Hugel prize for geology. This year, Jim plans to attend 
Ryei-son Technical Institute, and take a Business course. Good luck, 

Ross, D. D. ('52-'56). "Dave" came to T.C.S. from the wilds of 
Toronto, spending one year in Boulden House and four years in Senior 
School. It was no time at all before he gained a reputation as a 
haid worker, keen on athletics and one of the best-liked persons in 
the School. Joining Bethune House, he took part in Littleside gym, 
hockey and cricket in his Fourth Form year. In Fifth Form, he played 
Middleside football, hockey and cricket. His last year was devoted 
more to studies but he played Bigside hockey where he obtained his 
full colours. We wish Dave "au revoir" and the best of luck with his 
Business Administration course at Western. 

Seagram, R. G. ('SS-'SB). In 1949, Richard entered Boulden House 
where he immediately excelled in athletics, winning his colours in 
football, hockey, and cricket. In tennis, he won the Junior School 
singles championship. Coming up to Brent in 1952, Richard received 
colours in Littleside football, gym, and cricket, again winning the 
singles tennis championship. In his second year, he won Middleside 
colours in football, and cricket, and Bigside colours in gym. Richard 
gained further distinction as a distance runner in the Oxford Cup 
Race, coming first. He also served on The Record staff. Joining the 
Choir, he became a stalwart member for his remaining years at 
T.C.S. In his last year at T.C.S., Hoary was appointed a School 
Prefect. In athletics, he was captain of the Tennis Team, the Oxford 
Cup team and won both the Senior singles and doubles tennis. Although 
we shall miss Richard greatly, we wish him every success in his 
future studies. 


Sherwood, R. C ('51-'56). In the fall of '51, a large figure, as 
far as New Boys go, arrived at T.C.S. Bob was a Bethunite, and also 
a good football player, winning in his New Boy year his Littleside 
colour, and later Middleside colour. An ardent photographer, he joined 
the Photographic Society in his first year. "Abes," as a typist and 
businessman, gave valuable assistance to "The Record." In both the 
Choir and Glee Club, Bob was a tenor vocalist. In squash, he won 
his Middleside colour. In his final year at T.C.S. , Bob was appointed 
a Bethune House Officer. In the winter term, he very capably 
managed Bigside hockey for which he received an award and was 
also a member of the Pat Moss Club. The entire School wishes Bob 
the best in all his future ventui'es. 

Spivak, J. L. ('53-'56). Jerry Spivak entered T.C.S. in the fall 
of '52. In Boulden House he not only shone at scholastic work but 
became a well known athlete, winning his colours on the football team. 
The following year, Jeriy entered the Senior School and again be- 
came an accomplished student and sportsman. He played for both 
Littleside and Middleside "B" football teams and gained his colours 
in Littleside and Middleside cricket. Jerry is better known for his 
skill at squash. As a member of the Bigside squash team, he made 
wonderful progress and won his colour for his contributions to the 
team. Being a true American, Jerry also played basketball and won 
his Middleside colours. He took an active part in extra-curricular 
activities and was a member of the Pat Moss Club, Political Science 
Club, Dramatic Society, both Junior and Senior Debating Societies 
and the Cadet Band. Jerry also undertook the difficult job of associate 
sports editor of The Record. For all the above-mentioned contributions 
to School life, he became a House Officer in his final year. In School 
work, too, Jerry did extremely well, not only winning an entrance 
scholarship to the Senior School but also various prizes throughout 
his career, topped off by the classics prize in the Sixth Form. Jerry 
left T.C.S. for Princeton University where he is in a pre-medical 
course. He will be missed greatly by T.C.S. 

Steinmetz, N. ('54-'56). Nick came to T.C.S. in the fall of 1954 
and found he was a membei' of Bient House. Coming from Colombia, 
Nick naturally felt at home with soccer and played on the first team. 
At the end of a successful season he was awarded extra first team 
colours. As winter came along, Nick turned to swimming. For two 
consecutive years, he swam for the School team, and was granted his 
Middleside colours. Besides sports, Nick achieved outstanding success 
in his studies. At the end of his Fifth Form year, he was presented 
with awards for General Proficiency, English (not his native lan- 
guage), Religious Knowledge, and Latin. Returning to T.C.S. for his 
second year, Nick became a member of the VIA Form, and yet found 
time enough for the extremely heavy task as Editor-in-Chief of The 


Record. In this capacity, he maintained the Record at an exceedingly 
high standard. Foremost among his other interests were the Political 
Science Club and the French Club. He took part in the French play 
and was congratulated on several occasions for his good acting. For 
all his good work throughout the year Nick was made a House Pre- 
fect. On Speech Day, Nick distinguished himself further by winning 
many high awards. First of all, he was Head Boy for 1955-56. He 
also amassed the following prizes: Armour Memorial Prize, Second 
Year Challenge Trophy, Chancellor's Prize, Lieutenant Governor's 
Silver Medal for English, Rigby History Piize, and the French Prize. 
Nick is now taking an Arts Course at McGill and later will study 
Medicine. After that, he hopes to join the World Health Organization. 
T.C.S. is sorry to see you go, Nick, but we wish you the best of 

Strange, M. W. (•52-'56). Bill Strange, known as "Willy" to most, 
was a newcomer to the School in 1947. In the year 1952, he appeared 
in the halls of Bethune in the S.S. To say that Bill remained in this 
house would be incorrect for he lived in Brent but still retained his 
former ties. Operating from room 100, he acted as an assistant broad- 
caster for W.I. P. A., the School radio station. During his years at 
T.C.S. Willy was on the swimming team for three years and gained 
his Middleside colours. He also assisted Mrs. Dening as a librarian. 
Bill is a prospective law student. We're sure he has the necessary 
courtly gestures and we wish him success in his further studies. 

Turnbull, W. S. ('54-*56). Wally was a newcomer to the School 
in 1954, hailing from Rothsay, N.B. During the fall of that year he 
played Littleside soccer. When ice appeared in the arena Wally 
grabbed his skates and made for the rink. That year he played on 
Middleside, and the following year gained Bigside colours for this 
sport. Wally was also a tennis player winning his half Bigside colours 
for his contribution to the School team. Wally became a House Officer 
in his Sixth Form year. Meanwhile, he made harmonious notes float 
f)om a bugle, forced U.C.C. to eat their words in an inter-school debate 
and carried on as a member of "The Record" staff and as a Sacristan. 
Dalhousie University is Wally's present abode where he is taking an 
Arts Course. Best of luck to you, Wally. 

Vernon. J. A- H. ('.53-'56). John came to T.C.S. in the fall of 
1953, when he was recruited by Bethune House. He attended T.C.S. 
for three years beginning with the Fourth Form, and working through 
to the Sixth Form. During his first year,' John played with the Little- 
side team, earning his extra colours. After football was over, he 
decided to swim, again getting extra colours, but this time on a 
Middleside team. Returning for his Fifth Form year, he furthered 


himself in the football world by being promoted from Littleside to 
Middleside, where he played for the next two years, getting extra 
colours. John was also promoted to the Bigside swimming team. For 
two years, he swam for Bigside, and was awarded half-colours twice. 
Besides sports, John played an active part in School activities, de- 
voting much of his time to various clubs but especially to the Chapel. 
In the Choir for two years, he was also a Crucifer, and in his last year 
assumed the responsibility of Head Saci'istan. It was in this year 
also that John was appointed a House Prefect for Bethune House 
and helped greatly in the House. Among the extra-curricular activities 
and clubs in which he was an active member and took intensive in- 
terest were the Debating Society, the Political Science Club, the 
French Club, the Dramatic Society, and The Record staff. John also 
played an effective supporting role in one of the School's best plays, 
"Journey's End." He plans to go to Trinity College, Toronto, taking 
an Arts course. We wish him every success. 

Wells, B. G, ('51-'56). On the first fall day of the Autumn term 
of 1951, a group of New Boys were gathered around a young fellow 
standing up on a soap box who was giving them a sales talk. What 
had happened? You guessed it — Bruce Wells had come to T.C.S. 
Bruce was one of the School's better history students and this ability 
was used to advantage in the Political Science Club where he was 
treasurer in V Foi-m and secretary in his last year. He also received 
a history prize both years. An eloquent orator, he was a colourful 
member of the Junior and Senior Debating Societies. For three years 
he was also a very active member of the School Choir. He followed 
up this keen interest in the School clubs by joining the Photographic 
Society in the junior forms and presiding over the Radio Club in 
Fifth Form. The Record staff employed his unusual abilities as well. 
He carried on the management of the Business staff for three years 
and won the Special Record Prize last June for his outstanding con- 
tributions to the advertising department. He participated keenly 
in athletics, too, where he gained Middleside and Littleside football 
colours. In Fifth Form he competed in the Oxford Cup Race and 
the following year he received his Bigside colour for squash. He also 
won an av/ard for coaching and managing in this department. Bruce 
was one of the more popular members of the Sixth Form with his 
bright, casual manner and in his last year was made a House Prefect. 
Law is Bruce's goal for the future. Best of luck from T.C.S. 

Winnett, A. R. ('SS-'SG). Way back in 1950. "Bert" entered Boul- 
den House doors with a pair of football boots slung over his shoulders. 
Right from the beginning, he became one of the better all-round 
athletes of the School. In his Junior School new boy year, he walked 
off with four J.S. first team colours, football, hockey, gym, and 
cricket. In his second and last year at the J.S., he won the same 


colours again and was a member of "C" Dorm. In the fall of '52, 
Bert entered Brent House. Playing Littleside football and Middle- 
side hockey, he gained his full colours in both. In the spring, he 
played Bigside cricket, and won half-colours. Always interested in 
the life of the School, Bert joined The Record staff, the Choir, and 
the School band, doing much valuable work in these activities dur- 
ing his four years in the Senior School. The next year, due to a 
broken shoulder, Bert did not play football, but managed to win 
his Middleside hockey colours and extra Bigside colours in cricket. 
In his Fifth Form year, Bert joined the Glee Club, and became one 
of its more enthusiastic members. In hockey and cricket, he was 
awarded his full Bigside coloius and half colours in football. He was 
also head drummer of the band. During his final year at T.C.S., Bert 
was again head drummer of the band. In sports, he won his full Big- 
side colours in football, hockey, and cricket (vice-captain), and was 
awarded Distinction Caps for the latter two. Bert was also appointed 
to the position of House Prefect, a well-earned position. The School 
wishes him the best of luck in his work at Queen's, where he is 
studying medicine. 

Wotherspoon, A. S. ('53-'56). Alan floated into Brent House in 
'53 after a successful three year hitch in Boulden House. There he 
won his First Team hockey colours, and became an industrious 
member of "C" dorm. In his stay of three years in the Senior School, 
Alan won his Littleside and Middleside hockey colours, and played 
some good Middleside League football when soccer was discontinued. 
While at the School, Al's greatest interest was music. A member of 
the School orchestra and Cadet Band, he could be heard every night 
up in the Hall after study in a jam session with other enthusiasts. 
Al began his own "Hi-Fi Radio Station," symbolically labelled WIPA, 
and broadcast good music and School news throughout T.C.S. This 
became a great aid to School spirit. Al also took an active interest 
in the French Club, being a regular member at the French table and 
acting in the Christmas play. Always strong academically, he kept 
up a good average throughout his T.C.S. career, and won the Governor 
General's medal for Mathematics last Speech Day. We feel sure his 
future at the U. of T. will be full of accomplishment. Best of luck, Al! 

Wotherspoon, R. H. ('53-'56). Richard, better known as "Swatty" 
spent seven years at T.C.S. diuing which he made himself a well- 
known figure. In Boulden House he was a member of the Choir for 
three years and in addition played first team soccer and second 
team cricket. After entering Brent House in the Senior School, he 
joined the Junior and Senior Debating Society, as well as the Political 
Science Club. His sports activities included Littleside soccer. Middle- 
side cricket, Middleside squash and manager of the first cricket 
team for three years, where he did a first class job, one which T.C.S. 
will not forget. He won a place in the leaders' course at Camp Borden 
in the summer of 1955, and is now at C.M.R. We wish Swatty the 
best of luck in his future career. 




This year, the third annual Choir School was held in 
the last two weeks of August, under the direction of Dr. 
Healey Willan. The sixty-two boys at the school stayed 
in Bethune House, and had their meals in the Senior School 
dining hall. The chief instructor, Mr, John Hooper, was ably 
assisted by guest lecturer Gerald Wheler from Ottawa, and 
Mr. Walter McNutt, choirmaster of St. Thomas Church in 
Toronto. The secretary in charge of recreation and other 
activities was Mr. John Bradley, assisted by an experienced 
staff. The kitchen staff was in charge of meals, and Mrs. 
Scott was the nurse. 

The boys arrived on Sunday, August 9, and stayed 
until Saturday, September 1. The daily routine began with 
a choir practice. This was followed at ten o'clock by early 
matins. From 10.30 to 11.00 there was a break after which 
the boys broke up into separate classes. Following lunch, 
the boys spent their time at various recreations. This 
continued for most of the afternoon, and after supper the 
day was topped off by movies or some other form of enter- 
tainment. On Sunday, there was a service at St. Mark's 

The aim of the choir school was generally to improve 
the singing of hymns, songs, and anthems. All concerned 
felt this was the most successful choir school yet held here. 


During the evening of the 21st of September voices 
reached a high pitch as everyone blew off steam in the 
assembly room. In the midst of the hullabaloo stood Ian 
Binnie waving his limbs in rhythm to the familiar strain, 
"Roll the Score Up." Meanwhile, back at the piano, Adam 
pounded a catchy beat while Dennis "the Weeper" Willows 
showed his skill with all his drumming apparatus. 


Several comedians showed their abilities by adapting 
themselves to the part of a certain celebrity named Elvis 
Presley. Stu Adam took the cake with his portrayal of this 
renowned character. (Editor's note: This article does not 
necessarily represent the feelings of this magazine.) 

Generally a good time was had by all. School spirit 
was at its best, for everyone contributed to both songs and 

The crowd in the basement of the Chapel during the 
evening of September 28 represented a gaudy array of ail 
sorts, shapes and sizes of clothing worn during the last fifty 
years. Ian Binnie was again M.C. of the gathering. It was 
indeed a pleasure to have the School band in on the show. 
This, their first public appearance, was so successful that 
an encore was immediately called for. 

The first feature in the evening's program was an 
appearance by Lillie Pons (Colin McNairn). She and Mr. 
Heard entertained the School with a charming duet. The 
stage cleared once more, three gentlemanly looking singers 
approached the mike. Now that the house lights had dim- 
med the smooth voices of George McCullagh, Stu Adam 
and last but not least, Garth "the Organ" Thompson gave 
forth a modern rendition of the popular song, "With All 
My Heart." 

Under the leadership of Tony Lash, several equally 
talented vocalists sang "Jamaica Farewell." After the per- 
formance we began to realize the depth of talent in the 
School in the field of singing. Indeed, the vocalists are many 
and certainly of various types — of course I refer to their

Mr. Heard, more commonly known in and around T.C.S. 
as "have you heard?" joined the teaching staff this fall. 
When an Old Boy returns to T.C.S. to teach, as with Mr. 
Heard, the boys immediately begin uncovering and re- 
establishing old and long-forgotten nicknames. 

Mr. Heard began his education at Strathcona School, 
in Calgary, his home town. While at Strathcona, he par- 
ticipated in many sports, including hockey, basketball, foot- 
ball, and cricket. Coming to T.C.S., Mr. Heard brought 
his western spirit with him. During his stay at T.C.S., he 


lilayed on Bigside football and managed Bigside hockey. 
He was also a crucifer, and a member of both the choir and 
the debating society. 

In 1950, Mr. Heard entered the University of Alberta. 
He joined the Calgary School Board in 1954, and taught in 
a city school for two years. We welcome him to T.C.S. and 
wish him success both in his teaching and as coach of 
Middleside football. 


Mr. Massey was born in Croydon, Surrey, and educated 
at Alderman Newton's School, Leicester, and Selhurst 
School, Croydon. While at school, he took part in swim- 
ming and track, as well as playing rugger, squash, and 
cricket. He was made a Prefect at Selhurst. Mr. Massey 
then spent two years teaching French and Grerman in the 
Army Educational Corps, being stationed for his military 
service in West Germany for some time. Following this, he 
entered Queens' College, Cambridge, where he spent a most 
successful period; he represented his college in shooting, 
squash, rugger and cricket. Graduating with honouis 
in the French and German tripos in 1955, he took 
short summer courses at Strasbourg and Munster, then 
ioined the firm of Standard Oil. Mr. Massey came to Canada 
in August, 1956, and is teaching French and German. He 
has a league football team, is helping with woodwork, and 
plans to coach squash and cricket. We hope his stay at 
r.C.S. will be a long and enjoyable one. 


Mr. F. A. Perry was born in Kitchener, Ont., where he 
r-.pent the first few years of his life. At the age of three, 
he moved to a town near Ingersol, where he received most 
of his early education. Graduating from Aylmer High 
School, Mr. Perry joined the student body of Western Uni- 


versity. Here he took an honours course in modern languages 
(French, Spanish, and Russian). While attending Western, 
he joined the U.N.T.D. (University Naval Training Division) , 
spending summers in H.M.C.S. Venture, in Halifax and at 
Royal Roads Military College. While in the U.N.T.D., he 
became an Instructor Lieutenant, R.C.N. (r), teaching the 
cadets Naval History, Navigation, Seamanship and Gunnery. 
Mv. Perry graduated from Western with the coveted Gold 
Medal, topping his class of 1956. Altogether, he had a very 
distinguished academic career, winning scholarships every 
year in both University and High School. 

He is presently coaching a Middleside League team 
as well as teaching the subjects indicated on the name plate 
on his door, familiar to all who live in Trinity House. (Latin, 
French, Spanish, Russian and Air Navigation). 

We hope that anyone who plans to enter the diplomatic 
service will sign up for a course in Russian. Good luck, Mr. 
Perry, we hope you'll make linguists of us all. 


Mr. Wing was born in Nort hv/est London near Wembley. 
He received his Grammar school education at the Thames 
Valley Grammar School at Twickenham. From there he went 
to the Acton Technical College where he received his Bnc- 
hclor of Arts degree in 1952. Then for a year he took a 
teachers' training course at the University of London In- 
stitute of Education. Mr. Wing was married in 1953 and 
with his wife he went to teach at Ankara College in Turkey 
in September of that year. This school consists of Turkish 
boys and girls whose ages range from eleven to nineteen. 
Mr. Wing taught the older students Mathematics and Science 
while Mrs. Wing taught English to a group of young girls. 
Mr. Wing was in Turkey for three years and came to Canada, 
arriving on August 30, to join the Mathematics staff of 
T.C.S. Mrs. Wing is offering assistance in the Old Boys' 
office while Mr. Wing has undertaken to teach the Upper 


School problems class, a new feature in the '56 timetable. 
The whole School cxtencis to them a hearty welcome and 
hopes that their life in Canada will be most enjoyable. 


This summer, Trinity Camp was again run for a group 
of underprivileged boys from Toronto and Montreal, and 
was a success under the able direction of Mr. J. G. N. Gordon. 
During the first week the camp was in session, Phil Spicer 
and Charles Colby helped as counsellors while Bob Sher- 
wood helped during the second week. Bill Boughner and 
Ian Binnie drove up from Toronto to open the cabin. Ian 
also came down the next week-end, and the following Satur- 
day came once more to help close up the camp. 

On one of the first really warm days of summer, Phil 
Spicer arrived with twelve youngsters from Toronto. They 
ranged from eleven to fourteen years. In minutes they had 
piled into the awaiting cars — fishing rods, baseball bats, 
musical instruments, and all. There was perhaps some dis- 
appointment leaving the Lake, but nine miles later, as they 
nearod the camp grounds, consisting of four acres of nciJ 
and wood, all was forgotten. 

After a hearty first meal, the boys had the afternoon 
to make friends and explore the surroundings. Before sup- 
per, two Montreal boys arrived, bringing the total number 
of campers to fourteen. That night, the boys were divided 
into two groups of seven, each team choosing a captain and 
a team name. After every three days, a prize would be 
given to one of the teams, hence a fierce struggle developed 
between the Bobcats and the Blackhawks for the prize. 

A point system determined the winning team. Points 
were given for games, such as baseball and bingo, morning 
inspection of the bunkroom and tent, and jobs such as 
raising and lowering the flag, cleaning up the kitchen and 
grounds, washing the dishes, and sweeping the floors. The 
sense of team spirit which immediately developed was un- 


doubtedly of great importance in contributing to the camp's 

The morning began with a cold shower at the pump, 
usually accompanied by shivers and shrill screams from 
Kenny and Neil, "It's too cold! Where is Mr. Gordon? Get 
hmi!" At this everyone would rush off to the "Executive 
Suite." From within, however, could be heard only gentle 
snormg. Two "ears" silently passed the window unob- 
served, except by one, Bobby Tucker, whose frantic screams 
brought Dave and Chubby Rosier charging through the 
door. But all too late — Mr. Gordon was drying himself. 

On the first trip away from camp, the boys arrived at 
the Wesleyville beach on Lake Ontario. The water was 
chilly, but the warm sun encouraged everyone to have a 
quick dip before lunch. In the afternoon, a Scavenger Hunt 
brought fifty points to the winners, a ball game following 
immediately afterwards. Later in the week, a fishing trip 
to Rice Lake proved an even greater success. Four boats set 
out from Harwood, and before lunch, more than a dozen 
perch had been caught. As the afternoon was blazing hot, 
swimming was the most popular occupation. The next 
morning, since everyone cooked his own catch, breakfast 
finished quite late. 

Most of the boys had never seen a farm before. Hence, 
when it was announced at dinner that they were goin-;^ to 
visit a farm, there was much excitement. After- everyone 
had ridden the horses, a trip was taken to the fields to see 
a hay-baler in operation. Before leaving, the boys were 
given some time for jumping in the hay-loft, thus ending 
an eventful day. 

The creek, located less than a mile from camp, soon 
proved itself to be the most popular spot in the area. A 
dam supplied an excellent swimming-hole, while the creek 
soon gained renown for the trout it contained, and which 
the boys occasionally caught. Since it was also the home 
of many snakes and frogs, new pets often appeared around 
the cabin. After supper, an exciting game of ba.seball would 


put the finishing touches on many a day. After that, Mr. 
Gordon would read a chapter from an adventure story while 
the boys ate cookies and drank cocoa around the fire. On 
several occasions, a huge bonfire was built, and a com- 
bmation of a sing-song and a marshmallow roast would 
finish the day. It was during one of the bonfires that Ian 
Binnie told the boys his memorable tale of "Club Foot." 

For all concerned, Trinity Camp was a great success, 
and, needless to say, the School hopes to run it again 
next summer. 


The Summer of 1956 engaged T.C.S. gents in many 
ways, ranging from an electrician's assistant in a hospital 
to deckhands on Great Lakes oil-tankers. After a tough, 
cool summer most of us were glad to get back to the com- 
paratively easy life at School. 

Although this was not the sort of summer for out-of- 
doors work, Mr. Hodgetts and boys' camps seemed to 
employ a large number of boys. Among them were Don 
Young, Fuzzy Knight, Ken Scott, Tim Kennish, Tony Lash, 
and Colin McNairn, who all (as I understand) had a terrific 
time up at Hurontario. While these types enjoyed them- 
selves on Georgian Bay, Rusty was acclaimed Temagami's 
best hustler. George McLaren "counsellored" at Sherwood 
Forest, Dave Cape at Nominang, Dave Sutton at Kandalore, 
Doug Cunningham at Mazinaw and the Y.M.C.A. occupied 
Bob Hart and Nick Boyd. 

Tom Allen, Terry Hall and George McCullagh took a 
nice easy vacation by seeing what Europe had to offer. 
Apparently they weren't disappointed either. 

The lifeguard situation was much improved this sum- 
mer with Bob Savage working for the Red Cross in Windsor 
and Tim Hamilton trying to do the same in Washington. 

Out at Malton, Ramsey Derry and Bun Austin officially 
obtained their wings. Incidentally, our congratulations go 


to Ramsey as he v/on quite a name for himself in flying. 

Reports from Quebec say that Tim Carsley was voted 
Lion Vinegar Co.'s best all around apple-squeezer at head- 
quarters in Vancouver. 

Herbert and the two Piglettes worked for G.M. at the 
Ex and from Port Carling comes the message that Welch's 
is good grape juice. 

I interrupt this sketch to bring you a special bulletin. 
"The reports of a discomobile skimming across Stoney Lake 
have been confii'med — the discomobile is real. From out- 
side we can see Wes McKnight in the discomobile and believe 
it or not— yes he is— he's TRUMPIN' it up." What a sum- 
mer, eh Wes? 

Meanwhile, out West, Adam Saunders was named the 
most valuable anchor man in the boat races sponsored by 
Shell. And you say you lost weight, Adam? 

Dick Smith tells us that working as an electrician's 
assistant isn't as bad as one may think — even if you did 
work in an institution. Al Shier and his pals spent a good 
summer at Niagara-on-the-Lake and Mark Dowie saw all 
the ball games free as he v/as supposedly a reporter for a 
Cleveland nev/spaper. 

How are all the lumber-jacks up in Temagami, Bo? 
We hear you had fun sawin' logs. Bob Smithers slaved on 
a labour gang in Sarnia for Canadian Oil Companies while 
Don Farnsworth worked as a time clerk for Abitibi Power 
and Paper Company. Garth Thompson and Blaine Bowen 
worked on oil tankers on the Great Lakes while Elvis, al- 
though he was on the Great Lakes, was demoted to a fire- 
man. Red Embury laid some beautiful eggs on a poultry 
farm in Regina and our good friend Noranda Bill was a 
geophysical surveyer in N.B. From all reports Bill liked 
the job but hated the neck o' the woods. 

Ian Binnie piled brick and spread mortar for the 
Toronto General this summer. That's it, boy, we're glad to 
see you helping those of us who need it! Joe Perkins drove 
trucks for his Dad and found out that as long as you work 



in your Dad's business you can't go wrong. Grant Duff was 
hoping the Eskimos would keep him up there in Hudson's 
Bay but he too decided that there is no place like home 
(T.C.S.) so he returned. 

While Fearless Fred Gordon surveyed the Lake o' the 
Woods, Chas. Colby did absolutely nothing in an office 
of some steel company or another as did Tony Minard for 
Spruce Falls Power and Paper Co. And last and least of 
all Peter Hyde worked for the Bank of Montreal as a junior 
clerk. To wind up a wide variation of jobs, Al Ralph life- 
guarded at a girls' camp, the lucky guy. 


When I was a young boy, I used to spend many hours 
wondering about the many strange aspects of modern life. 
As I grew older and more mature I gradually learned the 
answers to many of the queries of my youth. There was, 
however, one problem, which concerned the character of 
a certain man I once met, the answer to which I have only 
recently discovered. 

I met this man one sunny afternoon as I hurried out 
of a restaurant into Dominion Square in the heart of Mon- 
treal. In my haste I nearly knocked over a pleasant looking 
old man in his sixties, wearing a long dark coat which 
stretched to well belov/ his knees and which gave him the 
appearance of a Scottish landowner on the way to feed his 


pheasants. I apologized politely for my carelessness and 
stooped to help him retrieve the contents of a bag which 
he had dropped on the sidewalk. I was surprised to discover 
that the contents of the bag were nothing more than small 
pieces of stale bread with which, he explained, he was going 
to feed the pigeons in the square, as was his custom each 
day at that time. 

During the next few weeks I used to see my new friend 
every day — at the same time crouched in the far corner of 
the square, surrounded by a large flock of pigeons. I learned 
from him one day that he spent more time with the pigeons 
than he did with his wife. However, when I asked him 
why he enjoyed the pigeons so much he became very shy 
and reserved. Nevertheless, I was extremely puzzled as 
to why pigeons were so interesting. 

One day I found out. As I entered Dominion Square 
on the way to my office I caught sight of the now familiar 
figure of the old man crouched among the multitude of 
pigeons. I was in a great hurry and did not wish to talk 
to him. I therefore stayed on the sidewalk and walked right 
past him glancing back only once to see if he had noticed 
me. In that one second in which my eyes were upon him 
I discovered why pigeons were so interesting to him. His 
arm suddenly shot out like an arrow from his coat pocket, 
seized a pigeon by the neck and shot it back into his coat. 
He then stood up as if too tired to stoop any longer, stretched 
his legs, walked to the curb and hailed a taxi and drove off. 

I was too surprised to do anything but stand there and 
stare after him. — d. e. cape, via. 


The city lay still in the cool March air. Midnight had 
struck a short while ago, and yet the usual noise of traffic 
and hurry of feet were absent. The air was electric. 

In a narrow street off the main thoroughfare was a 
dingy shop. Three brass balls hung over the door, and on 


the window in tarnished gold lettering were the words 
"Pawn Shop, H. Mueller, Prop." Inside this emporium an 
old man was puttering around tidying up. Hans Mueller 
was a widower of nine years and this shop was all that he 
had left in life. The weight of many years hung on his 
stooped shoulders for he was a frail man. It had been a 
long hard climb since he and his wife had emigrated from 
Germany, but they had been happy years and the old man 
would give all to re-live them. 

As he turned to climb the stairs to his dingy apart- 
ment his thoughts turned to the lonely meal of bread, cheese 
and warm ale that he would partake of before retiring to 
bed. Suddenly a rock came crashing through the window 
to the accompaniment of many shouting voices and ham- 
merings on the door. When Hans opened it he saw over 
fifty people milling about waving their fists. As they caught 
sight of the old man the cries died down, and then grew 
loud and shrill with obscenities. A leather-jacketed youth 
only a few feet from Hans threw a newspaper in the old 
man's face. As Hans grabbed at it another boy struck him 
on the head with a brick. Then as Hans fell forward, the 
mob charged through the door, pushing him into a corner. 

Everything that the rabble laid their hands on was 
smashed to splinters. The contents of the window dis- 
appeared in a twinkling, either pocketed or trodden under- 
foot. Even the oaken counter was destroyed and holes 
punched in the ceiling. In ten minutes the shop w?-s a 
shambles, and the mob reluctantly filed out the door still 
shouting and jostling one another. 

Soon it was quiet again, and under the plaster and dust 
amid the ruins of his lifework lay old Hans prostrate in 
ths corner, a vivid gash across his temple. Clutched in his 
hand was the open newspaper. Below the date, September 
1930, "early edition," in a screaming headline lay the cause 
of this wanton outbreak of violence. "Chamberlain declares 
state of war with Germany." 

— C. J. English, VI A. 



At last the awaited moment arrives. The doorbell rings 
not more than once before I reach the door. The delivery 
boy hands me a small carefully wrapped package, presents 
me with the bill and retreats. I hurry to my work bench 
and open the box in seconds. The contents? One brass key 
which will lead mc to my own unique world and its special 

Now this world is not imaginary, it is truly genuine. 
It is a large iron box twelve feet high and twelve feet long 
with walls a foot thick. The inside is plated with steel 
and padded with soft thick cushioning. The furniture I 
have provided is simple and perhaps scanty but that is the 
way I have planned it. I called this huge container a world ; 
well, it's going to be just that, for me. 

For as long as I can remember I have always been 
irritated by people and nature. Not physically, mind you, 
but mentally. There always seems to be something irritable 
about living creatures which I cannot tolerate. This aversion, 
strange as it is, led me to contrive a plan by which I might 
escape my unfortunate allergy. I spent most of my money 
on years of research and gradually constructed my unique 
retreat. I have an unlimited supply of food, so now the 
key, which shuts and locks me inside is the last minor factor. 
There it is in my hand. 

I step inside, switch on the light and without a single 
glance or word to the world I close the door. Smoothly it 
slides into place with a click that marks eternal separation 
from the earth. 

My first thought is to sleep because the continual strain 
for the last week has been heavy. I lie down on the couch 
with an almost supernatural peace of mind and let my 
thoughts wander. 

I awake slowly now; it must be some time afterwards 
for I feel completely rested. There seems to be a peculiar 
odour of wet grass (or something of that nature) but it 
must be my imagination. 


Then, I open my oyer, and with a horrible lump in my 
throat I begin to piece tojelhcr three simple facts. I have 
become aware of a slight ache in my ribs, my surroundings 
arc not })added walls but open fields and thirdly, beside me 
lies a woman.

"Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Irving Cousins of River 
Falls, Quebec." 

An expectant hush fell over the tiny auditorium as Mr. 
Cousins stepped quickly to the flag-draped platform. He 
was a young man, tall but very thin, whose pleasant, smiling 
face and straightness of bearing gave him a satisfying air 
of pride and confidence. Indeed, his whole appearance, 
from his sleek black hair to his gleaming shoes which re- 
flected the silent faces of the enraptured crowd, seemed to 
blend into a magnificent picture of grandeur that made an 
immediate impression upon his attentive audience. 

Nevertheless, a slight quiver in his voice could be per- 
ceived as i\!r. Cousins cleared his throat and prepared to 
utter the first words of his first public speech. As he spoke, 
his words rang out, echoing off the bleak walls of the 
crowded room so that they seemed to linger in the air be- 
fore they were swailov/ed up by the enraptured minds of 
the listeners. Finally, as J.Ir. Cousins concluded his oration 
and returned once more to his seat, thunderous applause, 
which shook the very foundations of the little building, 
burst forth from the excited audience. Mr. Irving Cousins 
was a success.

I heard an Old Boy ack thin Thanksgiving where the 
soccer field had gone. Well, the answer is that, for the 
second year, we have put the soccer ball away and the 
soccer player we have made into a football star, either on 
a School team or on one of the intramural league teams. It 
appears that these leagues have paid off for we find five 
of last year's league boys playing on the first team. Per- 
haps this is what has sparked the team to win three and 
tie one of the four exhibition games played so far. Mr. Law- 
son, who has taken the place of Mr. Hodgetts, v/ho coached 
the team for twelve years, has moulded a hard-hitting, 
hard-tackling outfit out of the six returning boys and the 
material that turned out in September. With the first Little 
Big Four game only a week away from this writing, we 
are beginning to wonder if that team which seemed a little 
weak at first, might just have that "esprit de corps" to go 
all the way to the top. And with the wonderful spirit the 
School has shown already we are sure to have a colourful, 
lively season. 

Middleside this year is coached by Mr. Sandy Heard, 
an Old Boy, who is doing a fine job in Mr. Lawson's place. 
The team has lost its two Little Big Four games, both 


in very close matches, especially against Ridley; but led 
by their spirited captain, John Embury, they still have high 
hopes in the games to come. 

Littleside, coached again by Mr. Landry and captained 
by Peter Barbour and John Braden, have run into rather 
tough competition against a heavier Upper Canada team 
and a faster more experienced Ridley squad. They are a 
smaller team than usual but are showing good spirit and 
hard effort in every game.

T.C.S. vs. OSHAWA 
At Port Hope, September 16. Tied 14-14. 

In the season's opener Trinity split a close fast game 
against Oshawa Collegiate. Although T.C.S. kicked off they 
soon gained possession of the ball, marching down the 
field to the twenty yard line where a second down pass 
failed to chck. Terry Hall then kicked a long spiral out 
of the end zone, for a single point. Oshawa took the ball 
on their twenty-five but fumbled on the second play, T.C.S. 
recovering. The School took the field again but were held 
short of a T.D. by one yard. Oshawa vainly tried to break 
out of their own end, but were forced to kick. The partially 
blocked kick landed out of touch at the Oshawa fifteen. 
The stage was then set for Rusty Dunbar to go over for a 
T.D. and Dave Marrett kicked the extra point. Oshawa 
received but were pushed back deep into their own end. 
Then Perrin for T.C.S. intercepted a short pass and ran 
ten yards to make a 14-0 Trinity score at half time. 

In the second half Oshawa picked up considerably 
showing some very good faking. Shortly after the kick-off 
Bill Wilson for Oshawa took the baU from the T.C.S. forty- 
five and battered through the Trinity defence for a conver- 
ted T.D. T.C.S. then retaliated with a surge of power, but 
again were held just short of the goal line. Oshawa fought

back and got out to their own twenty-five where they fum- 
bled, T.C.S. again recovering. The School tried a field goal 
on the twenty yard line but the ball missed its mark. Oshawa 
then came back with a long pass from their own twenty 
complete to Jim Harris, a Trinity old boy, who ran all the 
way for a T.D. Again the convert was good, tying up the 
score at 14-14. 

In the dying minutes of the game, Oshawa, driven to 
greater efforts, pushed T.C.S. right down to the touch line, 
but failed to put the ball over, before the one minute flag 
tell to end the game. 

At Port Hope, September 29. Won 26-12. 

In their second exhibition game of the season. Big- 
side played host to North Toronto. The team looked very 
much improved over their first game as they beat the visi- 
tors 26-12. 

In the first quarter North Toronto took the lead on an 
unconverted touchdown by Achienne. Near the end of the 
first quarter the School fought back hard to tie the score 
but were unable to, although Hall kicked a single. In the 
second quarter T.C.S. went ahead on an unconverted touch- 
down by Hall. 

In the third quarter, the School dominated the play as 
they went ahead on two touchdowns by Dunbar, one being 
converted. In the final quarer Adam intercepted a North 
Toronto pass and ran 70 yards for the School's final touch- 
down. The convert was missed. Then North Toronto took 
over and pressed deep into T.C.S. territory. The ball changed 
hands twice. Auld then went over for North Toronto and 
the convert attempt was blocked. The final score was 26- 
12 for T.C.S. 


At Port Hope, October S. Won 83-6. 

In their third exhibition game of the season, T.C.S. 
showed a great deal of improvement over the previous 


games, especially defensively as they held Peterborough to 
very few first downs. 

Peterborough struck surprisingly fast after taking ad- 
vantage of a short kick and a T.C.S. fumble, and within three 
plays had passed for a touchdown, Bob Hutton making the 
catch. The convert was blocked. 

Following the kick-off the School marched right down 
the field from their own 35 on a series of end runs and 
plunges, Al Shier and Rusty Dunbar carrying. The result 
was a T.D. by Al Shier which was easily converted by Dave 
Marett. The score at the end of the quarter was 7-6 for 
the Maroon and Black. 

In the second quarter the defensive work by both teams 
was tighter than in tlie first and the School was held to 
one additional touchdown by Dunbar on a spectacular end 
run. The convert once again was good and at the half the 
scort'board read 14-6. 

Having received the kick-off, T.C.S. failed to gather 
steam for another long march and Peterborough threat- 
ened once again but lost the ball on the fumble. Once again 
Dunbar sv/ept around the end behind the blocking of Scott 
and Marett and the result was another touchdown which 
Marett converted. From here the School saw two more 
touchdowns — McKnight capitalizing on a loose ball and 
Adam going all the way on a reverse. Both converts were 
blocked and the final score was 33-6 for the home team. 


At Port Hope, October 6. Won 33-0. 

In the team's third exhibition game of the year, Big- 
side scored a decisive victory over the aggressive but ill- 
fated Danforth squad. The game got off to a fast start 
when Cape of T.C.S. went all the way down the field for a 
touchdown. Dunbar soon added to the score late in the first 
quarter, giving T.C.S. a handsome lead. Our team did not 
stop there, however, and Hall soon scored his first touch- 
dov/n of the afternoon, giving Marett an opportunity to kick 
a convert. 


After half-time, action slowed considerably until T.C.o. 
scored again with Hall's second major late in the third 
quarter. Dunbar again scored for Trinity and this, with 
Marett's two converts, completed the day's scoring. Dan- 
forth tried hard, but the Trinity defense held fast, foiling 
their every attempt to score. Although the game was tight 
in spots, the final score is enough to show that T.C.S. was 
never in danger of losing. 


At Port Hope, October 13. Won 38-13. 

On October 13, Trinity's Bigside team added to licr 
winnmg streak by downing a strong Malvern team. In 
the first quarter, Dunbar made two quick touchdowns, with 
Marett adding a point to place T.C.S. well in front. In the 
second quarter, however, after a long drive upfield, Brovv^n 
of the Malvern team scored a touchdown, making the score 
13-6. T.C.S. retaliated and after a few plays, Hall made 
another six points for T.C.S. 

Early in the second half, Adam caught a long pass 
and ran for a touchdown. Dunbar got his third touchdown 
of the afternoon after a fumble, and Farnsworth climaxed 
another long drive with a major, converted by Marett. In 
the fourth quarter, Malvern again became aggressive and 
Reeve got the touchdown. The convert was good on a pass. 
The game finished with T.C.S. victorious 38-13. 



At Port Hope. Lost 19-15 

Middleside's first game of the season got off to a fly- 
ing start when the Seconds recovered the ball in the second 
play of the game, but the skill did not last and the School 
was edged out 19-15. 

Oshawa took the lead early in the first quarter with 
Waldon scoring an unconverted touchdown. Both teams 


failed to score majors in the second quarter but a hard- 
hitting Trinity team took advantage of an Oshawa fumble 
late in the quarter and Red Embury kicked a field goal 
leaving the score 6-3 in favour of Oshawa. 

After the half, Oshawa came quickly back with Waldon 
again scoring but failing to convert. At the three-quarter 
mark T.C.S. rallied and Woody threw a long pass to Crowe 
for a touchdown but the convert attempt was unsuccessful. 
Minutes later Oshawa marched up the field and Waldon 
charged through for a touchdown which was converted by 
Wills. T.C.S. took the kick-off in the dying moments of 
the game and Wood made a spectacular run for a touch- 
down which was unfortimately unconverted. 

At U.C.C., September 29. Lost 32-13. 

In their second game of the season, Middleside ran into 
a strong Upper Canada College squad and were defeated 
32-13. The score suggests a wide margin in play but the 
game as a whole was a tight, sec-saw struggle until U.C.C. 
capitalized on their breaks in ths last quarter. 

Trinity opened the scoring when Wood caught a siilc- 
linc pass from Embury and went over standing up. T.C.S. 
failed to convert and led 6-0. U.C.C. came back and scored 
an unconverted touchdown resulting from a long plunge 
llirough centre. In the second quarter Upper Canada went 
ahead for the first time on a plunge from two yards out 
and converted to lead 13-6 at half time. 

T.C.S. hit hard in the third quarter and were rewarded 
as Wood scored his second touchdown on another pass. 
Trinity converted and at the end of the quarter the teams 
were deadlocked at 13-13. 

U.C.C. went ahead in the early moments of the fourth 
fjuartor on an unconverted touchdown and wrapped it up 
with another unconverted touchdown minutes later. With 
time running out, T.CS. made its last bid to get back into 


the game but Upper Canada turned an intercepted pass into 
a touchdown and held on for a 32-13 win. 

At U.C.C, October 3. Lost 20-19. 

The second game on the Middleside schedule was a very 
fast, hard-hitting game. Although, during the first quarter, 
each team drove deep into their opponents' territory, 
neither team scored. During the second quarter, the Ridley 
team drove our team back to their goal line, but Middleside 
held fast. The game remained scoreless. 

A long pass by Ridley in the early minutes of the third 
quarter gave Ridley the first touchdown of the game. Their 
attempt for a convert failed. T.C.S. rallied with a 60-yard 
run by Savage to tie the score. The convert attempt was 
too short. The third quarter ended with a second touch- 
down by Ridley, this time converted. 

In the fourth quarter, Colby and Wigle scored two 
touchdowns, unconverted, for T.C.S. Ridley rallied, scoring 
a major also, but missed the convert. Ridley was then 
caught behind its goal-posts for one point. The score was 
now tied at 19-19. In the final minutes of the game, Ridley 
kicked into the T.C.S. end-zone to make the final score 20-19 
for Ridley. Standing out on the T.C.S. team were Savage, 
Wiglc, Colby and Wood. 


At Port Hope, October 13. Lost 8-7. 

On Saturday, October 13, Middleside played host to 
Malvern in a very exciting exhibition of football. Both 
teams were very evenly matched, and the outcome was in 
doubt for the whole garr.?. Middleside scored first when a 
field-goal attempt by Embury was missed. Malvern were 
rouged in their own end, putting Middleside ahead 1-0. 
However, a determined Malvern team soon marched down 


the field, and MacLaughlan carried the ball over on a two- 
yard plunge, to put Malvern ahead 6-1. The convert attempt 
was foiled. Malvern added another point shortly after, when 
Labbett hoisted a long punt that bounded out of touch in 
llie end-zone, making the ncore at half-time 7-1 in favour 
of Malvern. 

On the first play of the second half, Hyland threw a 
long pass to Wood who scored a torichdown for Middleside, 
tying the score a 7-7. The convert was missed when the ball 
hit the upright and bounced back. Shortly afterwards the 
game was clinched when Labbett kicked for the winning 
point, giving Malvern the game 8-7. 


At U.C.C, September 29. Lost 45-0. 

In their first game of the season Littleside was beaten 
by a heavier and more experienced U.C.C. squad. From the 
beginning U.C.C. dominated the play and the first score 
was by Conacher. It was unconverted. Next Morris scored 
for U.C.C. on a pass from Innes. It also was unconverted. 
Then Allen and Pollite scored consecutively, the latter touch- 
down being converted by Derantny. Thus the first half 
ended 25-0 in favour of U.C.C. 

The second half opened with T.C.S. showing more 
stamina than they had in the first. But still U.C.C. managed 
to get through. This time Norris again scored on a pass 
from Innes and it was again converted. Then Conacher got 
through for an unconverted T.D. With T.C.S. threatening 
ctrojigly, Norris scored on another pass from Innes. 

Although they suffered a great loss, Littleside still 
shows promise of being a fast team. 


At U.C.C., Octobor 6. Lost 20-lS. 

In their second game, Litlleside showed very strongly 
although they lost a very close game. 

T.C.S. opened the scoring when Paisley recovered a 
Ridley fumble behind their line for a touchdown. It was 
unconverted. T.C.S. again scored a short while later on a 
kick by Wigle, trapping Ridley for a single point. Shortly 
following, Ridley scored a touchdown which was converted. 
It was made on a T.C.S. fumble with Secombe recovering. 
The first half ended with the score tied 7-7. 

Ridley quickly opened the scoring in the second half 
with a hard ground attack. Band going over for the touch- 
down and Ridley again converting. T.C.S. came to life again 
with a touchdown by Hancock late in the fourth quarter. 
Once more, it was unconverted. With only minutes to go, 
Ridley scored on the kick-off with Hiles making the touch- 
down. Their convert attempt failed, making the final score 
to a very well played game 20-13 in favour of Ridley. 


This year the tournament was held at the Toronto 
Cricket Club courts. The U.C.C. team defeated Ridley, 
S.A.C. and T.C.S. by winning all nine of their matches. Rid- 
ley won 6, S.A.C. 2 and T.C.S. 1. In all, 12 singles and six 
double matches were played. Dave Cape, the captain of the 
team, won the single T.C.S. victory in the singles over David 
Albury of S.A.C. 

Chris English was defeated in the singles, Peter Allen 
and Tom Turnbull in the doubles but in both cases T.C.S. 
won one of the sets. 

U.C.C. won the George McAvity Memorial Trophy 
which was held two years ago by T.C.S. and U.C.C. and 
last year by Ridley.

This is the first time these notes have appeared under 
our new name of Boulden House. We are very proud of the 
name but still a little self-conscious when using it. The 
habits of many years are hard to break! 

The largest number of New Boys for several years 
swept in on September 11th. We feel that they have already 
become part of T.C.S. and we wish them all a happy and 
profitable stay in the School. 

Our best wishes go with our Old Boys who are starting 
a new life in the Senior School this year. Good luck to all 
of them! 

We welcome Mr. Kingman and Mrs. McKinley to our 
staff and hope they will enjoy their work with us. 

Congratulations to Mr. John S. Guest on his appoint- 
ment as Master-in-Charge of the Lower School at Ridley, 
and all good wishes for many happy and profitable years 

We picked a superb day from among many poor ones 
for our usual Fall picnic. It seemed to be as great a success 
as always. 


In Old Fort Henry, on one of the stone walls, stands 
an ancient 18th Century cannon. Facing outwards, it still 
guards the countryside, now the metropolis of Kingston. 
Instead of protecting a tiny settlement, it now watches over 
vast factories, colleges and stores. 

Made of strong, solid iron, the cannon has withstood 
the battles against the Americans in the War of 1812. The 
barrel, made of brass, has been shined until the sun reflects 
off it like a million sparks. Beside the gun are piled a dozen 
or so old cannon balls. At one point near the cannon is a 
tm box full of cotton wicks. Beside the muzzle is a large 
barrel filled with an amount of gunpowder. 


During the summer months, it watches college students 
perform and dress in the costumes of old. It sees them march 
across the stone keep in the ancient uniforms. 

But as the autumn frosts come, the gunpowder, wicks 
and cannon balls are stored away, and the ancient cannon 
prepares itself for another winter.

"Wow! I don't think that I've come through that front 
door so fast in all my life! In other words, the neighbour's 
dog was chasing me. 

It is a yappy, disagreeable, pugnacious little pest. For 
instance, it goes to a lovely delphinium just blooming. Out 
comes the plant, in goes a dirty, old bone. 

I feel like wringing its pesky neck every time I see 
the wretched thing. Unfortunately, it's too tough."

As the sun went under the horizon, a gradual quiet 
spread over the land. Suddenly the silence was shattered 
by the tinkling of breaking glass. Joseph Winfield woJie 
with a start. Since the murder of Charles Wilson, none of 
the villagers had slept well. 

As he lay there burrowed into the blankets, the bed- 
room door creaked mysteriously and slowly opened. A men- 
acing silhouette seemed to slip across the wall from the 
door to the window. It moved silently, hardly making a 
sound other than a slight rustling. Winfield stared terrified 
at the shadow, pulling himself deeper and deeper into the 
bedclothes. When the shadow began to move toward him, 
he pulled the blankets tighter around him. As the silhouette 
stood over him, he made one last effort to cover himself 
from the menace

Travelling west on one of the famous C.P.R. trains, 
Canadians notice with pride the broad wheat fields and the 
tall grain elevators. Necessary as this great agriculture is 
to Canada, there is too much of it. Millions of bushels of 
wheat a year are surplus — surplus that is hard to dispose 
of. Couldn't some of this vast land be used for other indus- 
trial purposes? 

More important though are the waste lands in Northern 
Ontario and the North West Territories. Northern Ontario 
has its rich mining belt, but the lands to the northwest 
are, at present, useless. It has been said by many of the 
leading nations of the world that Canada is a great country 
to invest in. Unfortunately, only Canadians do not recog- 
nize this fact. 

Our main handicap, of course, is our small population 
which lives mainly on the international border between 
Canada and the United States. To settle the vast regions 
to the north would mean expanding our population north- 
west. To do this, many more millions of people are still 
needed. Let us hope that in a few years we may settle and 
industrialize our lonely north. 

M. H. H. Bedford-Jones, Form IIAl 


As the sun went down under the horizon, a gradual 
quiet spread over the land. The monstrous machinery of 
man ceased its clashing and turning. The throbbing hustle 
and bustle of the cities and towns of the land slowly, quietly 
settled down until only could be heard the soft murmur of 


the wind through the dull green trees along the sleepy 

The animals of the land began creeping quietly through 
the underbrush to their secluded homes. The crickets and 
frogs, hidden ingeniously throughout the meadows, began 
their monotonous high-pitched songs to the stars. All 
through the woods, the owls sat lazily on the gnarled, twisted 
limbs of old trees, giving their "All's well" to the slumbering 

Throughout the land the Lord had said sleep, and all 
slept in peace.

The colourful leaves fall softly, 
Softly to the ground. 
In many shapes and sizes, 
Tumbling softly from the trees 
To the ground far below. 

After the many leaves have withered. 
Everything is still for a while, 
Then the snow is teeming o'er us. 
It is Winter at our door.

Central School, playing at T.C.S. for the first time in 
a number of years, showed considerable strength in the 
second half and won a 5-2 victory.

Contributions to the Fund projected over a period of 
nine years now total slightly over Seven Hundred Thousand 

This is a magnificent response by Old Boys, Governors, 
Parents, Masters, Boys and Friends to the number of slightly 
over five hundred. 

It is wonderful now to see the number of Old Boys 
and others who are beginning to send in their contributions 
of modest sums but which they hope to continue over the 
years. Only by this means can we reach our objective by 

At the moment the School is packed full but we are 
ntill running into the red, principally because of the assist- 
ance we give to some thirty boys in the form of bursaries 
or scholarships. The School has always felt it was a privilege 
to help promising lads and it is a service we should render 
to the country and to the sons of clergy and of Old Boys 
who cannot afford the fees. 

If the fund reaches its objective the income will be suf- 
ficient to pay for all the bursaries and scholarships now 
given ($20,000) and other additional ones. The income 
from the cash received so far will amount to about $4,000.00. 

Forty per cent of the total amount subscribed has been 
given by six families: when a thousand Old Boys feel in- 
spired to send in their contributions, whatever they may 
be, then we shall be able to say not only that T.C.S. has 
blazed a new trail in the amount given to help the School 
and promising boys, but that a larger proportion of Old 
Boys, Parents and Friends has subscribed than ever helped 
any other Canadian School or University.

A tribute to one of Canada's greatest ranchers, the late 
George Graham Ross, Sr., of Aden, Alberta. 

Lord, I've never lived where churches grow, 

I loved creation better as it stood. 

The day you finished it so long ago, 

And looked upon your work and called it good. 

I know that others find you in the light 
That's sifted down through tinted window panes. 
And yet I seem to feel you near tonight 
In this dim quiet starlight on the plains. 

Lord, let me live my life as I've begun 
And give me work that's open to the sky. 
Make me a partner of the wind and sun. 
And I'll not ask a life that's soft nor high. 

Let me be easy on the man that's down. 

Let me be square and generous with all. 

I'm careless Lord sometimes when I'm in town. 

But never let them say I'm mean or small. 

Make me as big and open as the plains, 
As honest as the horse between my knees, 
Clean as the wind that blows behind the rain. 
Free as the hawk that circles down the breeze. 


Forgive me Lord if sometimes I forget, 
You know about the reasons that are hid. 
You understand the things that gall and fret; 
You know me better than my mother did. 

Just keep an eye on all that's done and said 
And right me sometimes when I turn aside 
And guide me on the long dim trail ahead 
That stretches upward toward the Great Divide. 

Taken from the Souvenir Program of the Lethbridge Ex- 
hibition and Rodeo, published by the Lethbridge Junior 
Chamber of Commerce. 

GEORGE G. ROSS ('06-'09) 

George Ross, who died on June 22nd at his Alberta 
Ranch, was at T.C.S. from 1906 until 1909. Few more popular 
boys ever attended the School and those who knew him fifty 
years ago never forgot him and often referred to him. He 
was a Prefect, a strong member of the first T.C.S. Football 
Champions in 1908, a team on which there were such stal- 
warts as Jack Maynard, George Laing, Peter Campbell, 
Walker Taylor, Buck Pearce, Styx Macaulay, Pudge Drum- 
mond, and George Ross was named outside wing on the 
School's All Star team of that year. He was on the Oxford 
Cup Committee, the Athletic Sports Committee, and he 
took a leading interest in many other sides of School life. 

For thirty years George was one of the most widely 
known men in Western Canada. He was universally ad- 
mired and respected and he held sometime all the important 
positions in the cattle breeding associations. 

In the First World War, he had fought in the Flying 
Corps and Royal Air Force with distinction and after the 
War, he became the first rancher in Western Canada to 
fly his own aircraft. 

His countless friends will never forget George Ross. 


From The Lethbridge Herald, Saturday, June 23, 1956: 
"It is difficult to think of the Southern Alberta cattle busi- 
ness without George Ross. He was the typical western stock- 
man — he loved the range lands and the free life he found 
out there in the short grass country. Son of a shrewd 
cattleman of the old school, Mr. Ross carried forward a 
high tradition. He believed in the business in which he 
found fame and fortune and in its important place in the 
Canadian economy. He knew cattle, was a recognized judge 
of a beef animal and did much to stabilize the business in 
this region and the whole West in fact, for the influence 
of George Ross was felt far beyond the boundaries of his 
province. He was always fair, was never looking for Govern- 
ment handouts; he kept his feet on the ground. But if he 
thought the cattlemen were getting a raw deal no man fought 
harder to get the situation before the proper authorities 
and righted. And the Government listened when he put the 
facts in his drawl, simple, down-to-earth but convincing 
style. He spoke from the 'grass roots' and they knew it. 
His death comes as a great shock. It is a real loss to the

"The wound which the Hungarian revolution inflicted 
on Communism can never be completely healed . . . National 
Communism is itself . . . only a phase in the evolution and 
withering away of contemporary Communism." 

Milovan Djilas, former Yugoslav Vice President. 

Throughout the duration of the so-called "cold war," 
we, the people of the western world, have attempted to 
spread our beliefs on the government of man and the manner 
in which we believe he should live in relation to his fellow 
man — to the citizens who live behind the Iron Curtain. Our 


instruments to accomplish this, Radio Free Europe, the 
Voice of America, and other organizations, have been suc- 
cessful up to a point, but the Soviet Union and its steadily 
increasing number of satellites have remained under the 
strictness of Kremlin dictatorship, unable to express their 
opinions in a parliament, unable to practise their ideas 
through government by democratic legislation. By political 
and economic diplomacy, the free nations of the world have 
attempted to gain some support from these puppet govern- 
ments, or governments which are being induced to become 
such by the Soviet bosses, but have usually met with little 
or no success. 

Within the last month, two revolts have occurred with- 
in the Communist stronghold which have done more to 
prevent the spread of communism to areas previously un- 
touched, and to cause dissension among already Red- 
dominated nations, than all of these other methods com- 
bined, though undoubtedly they all played a part in bring- 
ing the uprisings about. The first rebellion, in Poland, has 
been successful, (or was at the time of this writing). 
Though Poland has not separated from her military alliance 
with Russia, she appears to have won the right to convert 
from communism to socialism. The Premier of Poland, 
Wladyslaw Gomulka, has been increasingly successful in his 
bid for domestic independence from Russia. 

In Hungary, the immediate result has been something 
less than successful, it has been tragic. The Hungarians 
decided to go further, to attempt a complete break with 
Russia and return to a socialistic and democratic form of 
government. The result, which has been graphically told 
in newspapers, magazines, on television, and by radio, 
everyone knows. The Soviet would not tolerate such a move, 
and moved in with such vindictiveness and brutality that 
it has since become known as the "Russian blood bath." 
Nevertheless, the Hungarian people's heroic stand against 
this Russian barbarism has created world wide sympathy 
for their cause, dissension in the Kremlin, and discord in 


Communist organizations throughout the globe. This Soviet 
empire, held together purely by oppressive military might, 
controlled by a small clique of power drunk politicians, will 
not continue much longer. "If a house be divided against 
itself, that house cannot stand." 

The world is voicing its opinion of Russia's move. In 
an Italian election, held since the Hungarian crisis, the 
Communist vote was cut by fifty per cent. In France the 
Communist controlled General Confederation of Labour 
attempted to stage a counter demonstration against rioting 
before the Soviet Embassy in Paris. This was a complete 
and utter failure. Several leading figures in England's Com- 
munist party have resigned altogether, condemning the 
Russian move into Hungary, others have been chased 
through the streets by the infuriated populace. Not a very 
enticing picture for any prospective Communist! 

Karl Marx, the founder of Communism, stated that the 
world cannot live in co-existence, (the inference being, of 
course, that Communism must someday reign supreme.). 
However, if this be true, then Commimism is doomed, for 
a system will never win the world if it is apparent, as it 
has been these last few weeks, that the people imder it are 
being exploited and forcefully subjugated. Optimistically, 
one hopes that the march of Communism has reached the 
beginning of the end. 

I do not believe that we should now hope for a com- 
plete world wide adoption of our way of life, for it has been 
proved that what applies in our environment is not neces- 
sarily the best system in other parts of the globe. Rather, 
let us hope that in the near futiu-e representatives of aU 
nations, unbiased by political, economic, social, and re- 
ligious alliances, may meet within the sanctuary of the 
United Nations, and intelligently discuss the problems that 
confront the world today. In this manner, and in this 
manner alone, will we be able to formulate a peaceful 
solution, and one day be able to live in peace and prosperity. 

This Christmas, the world has received a truly magni- 
ficent gift from the people of Himgary and Poland. By 



their undaunted courage and immortal conviction, they have 
begun the breakdown of the Soviet alliances, the so far 
impenetrable Communist block, which we hope will begin 
a chain reaction, someday culminating in freedom for the 
peoples of all nations. They have attained a result which 
no other method could have achieved. Let us never forget. 

— W.I.C.B. 



The School was deeply shocked to hear of the 
sudden death of Garry Dalgleish ('51-'56) on Decem- 
ber 5th ; our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his parents 
and his brother Peter ('50-'54). 



(An Address given in Chapel by the Headmaster 
at the beginning of term) 

The Headmaster began his Address by quoting a 
remark made by a senior member of the Air staff. He had 
been discussing possible occupations for Air Force officers 


after they retired and he said that he could think of no 
other more interesting and worthwhile career than that of a 
schoolmaster at a boarding school like T.C.S. "There is a 
real mspiration," said the Headmaster, "in looking on such 
a group of young men as I see in this Chapel, 265 boys with 
healthy minds and bodies ready to tackle anything with a 
vigorous and enthusiastic purpose. In youth, the sense of 
wonder and the sense of adventure is keen and very highly 
developed for our years ; at this season particularly we have 
vividly in our minds the life of nature for most of us have 
been away for summer holidays. We think of the miUions 
of stars on a clear night, some of them shooting across 
the sky and others just hanging out of the universe, the 
whole heaven studded with their amazing brightness and 
multitude. (The Headmaster then spoke of the comets 
which trailed over the School in the year 1913.) Then there 
are new inventions of Man constantly coming to our atten- 
tion and changing our type of life; when I was a boy one 
simply could not imagine that he could cross Canada from 
Atlantic to Pacific in eight or nine hours or, indeed, get into 
a motor car and be 65 miles away in a little over an hour 
Hither in winter or summer. Think, too, of the radio and 
television, how every voice and every sound and almost 
every picture can be brought to us from the uttermost limits 
of the world; it is all extraordinary and thrilling. 

Life is an adventure and I hope you will always keep 
it an adventure. 

There are 80 boys in this Chapel this evening who 
have not been at T.C.S. before. You are joining a new 
family and a School old in years but ever young; the School 
is always the same age as far as its inhabitants are con- 
cerned and it has been said that it maintains eternal youth 
by an annual injection of monkey glands. 

You have come here, and the others have returned, 
with some definite ideas in your minds; you have a goal, 
an objective to reach. In general, I suppose you would say 
that you have come to get an education, to do well in studies. 


to learn as much as you can, to prepare for your career. 
Then you want to play games, to make a team, you want 
to meet other boys and make new friends and that is all 
a vital part of this Ufe. Many of the 4,600 boys who have 
been here speak of the friendships they made as being a 
lifelong enjoyment to them. 

When we think of it, I suppose we are all impressed by 
the principle of growth which we see all around us — plants, 
trees, animals and birds, life being nourished, Ufe being 
multiplied. Of course the surroundings must be favourable 
and help given to the young by the older of the same species 
but the young thing must soon fend for itself and make the 
most of its opportunities. Here at T.C.S. you have oppor- 
tunities and you have talents; we want to bring them to- 
gether. We hope the soil is favourable, the surroundings 
helpful, and that you will receive assistance from those 
who are more experienced so that you will make the most 
of your God-given talents. But much will depend on you, 
for you are largely now on your own. 

To mention a few of the qualities which will help you, 
i think of will power which is like the spark which drives 
the pistons in an engine; it is so necessary, without it we 
could be just a mass of flesh and bone as an engine without 
the spark plugs is just a mass of metal. Then there is the 
sense of direction, as important to us as a compass is to 
a ship's captain. There is your attitude, the way you look 
at life, constructive or destructive. There is something 
known as staying power, the power to keep going, and 
there is your ability to work with others. Those are very 
helpful qualities to have — will power, a sense of direction, 
the right attitude, staying power and the ability to work 
with others. 

In thinking of the many boys I have known and why 
some seem to go farther than others I believe staying power 
had much to do with it; staying power, coupled with a sense 
of wonder, an alertness of mind, keeping vivid, wide awake, 
really alive. 


Having a goal to work for certainly helps us to improve 
our staying power and another help is being a "doer", 
getting into the fray and making yourself count. The 
more we do the more we find it is possible to do. Try to 
be a fountain, not a cistern, for a fountain overflows but a 
cistern merely contains. 

Another help is to have a humble confidence in your- 
self, knowing you are not alone in this life; there is always 
at least One who is cheering you on in any worthwhile 
effort. The principle of growth is operating in you in the 
most marvellous of all ways and every day you can be a 
stronger person than you were the day before. You won't 
be so foolish as to worry, for worry is a disease which 
weakens us, but you will take care, take pains, and you will 
do your best every day. Genius, as most of us know, has 
been called 99 percent hard work, but it has also been called 
an infinite capacity for taking pains. 

There is no greater satisfaction in life, no such real 
enjoyment as discovering and using those amazing talents 
which are hidden in you. We know that we have just 
scratched the surface of our powers and it is a thrill to dig 
down deeper and find the veins of precious metal. In our 
north country muskeg and bush so often lie thick over the 
countryside but men who work hard to clear off that over- 
burden, as it is called, have discovered precioue ore un- 
dreamed of in former years; and so it is with you. It would 
be a shame if that ore were never discovered. 

One often hears references to character, the character 
of a man, the character of a School, and it is not too easy 
to define character but if you will develop staying power, 
a sense of direction, a good attitude, will power and the 
ability to understand and work with others, then I am sure 
you wUl develop character. "Sow a thought and reap an 
act; sow an act and reap a habit; sow a habit and reap a 
character; sow a character and reap a destiny. 

If we have will power and a sense of direction we shall 
control our thoughts and habits and it is true that they have 


much to do with character. Character is destiny. And it is 
still true that our whole future depends much on our 

There is one thing more in this life and it is all-impor- 
tant, something which shows us the way and gives us power 
to get there; it is the spirit of man which comes directly 
from the great source of life which we call God. 

You know how vital good spirit is on a team or in a 
School. It is that something which enables the group to 
drive together as one, each getting strength from the other, 
and in some remarkable way the total power and ability 
and enjoyment is much more than the sum of the parts. 

In a much deeper way, real life is spiritual life. It is 
more real and true because it is everlasting, changeless, 
it affects every side of our life, it is aU-embracing and a 
well spring of endless power and serenity. 

We know that man is made in the likeness of God, for 
one thing because he is endowed with a natural love for 
truth, for beauty, for righteousness, and nothing, I suppose, 
gives mortal man more real satisfaction than to grow in a 
deeper understanding of the meaning of truth and beauty 
and righteousness. When we thus grow we are surely 
learning more of Christ's teaching for He told us all about 
the spiritual life and He pointed the way to truth and 
beauty and righteousness in every area of our life. 

In our Chapel services, the most important part of our 
life, we shall all be able to learn more fully the way, Christ's 
way, but it does mean that we must give ourselves and try 
sincerely to know His teaching and feel His presence. Man 
is naturally religious, but for one reason or another that 
vital side of his nature is sometimes never developed, never 
even discovered. It is only through the religious life of the 
world that we can come to understand the kingdom of God. 
If we do our best to strengthen the religious life by working 
with our churches we shall help to bring the family of man 
closer to the Kingdom of God, and could anything be more 
worthwhile. I think it helps each one of us if we can draw 



apart for a time quite often during our week's work; if we 
could come into this Chapel alone and just stay quietly we 
would find that such a period of contemplation and medita- 
tion would greatly enrich our lives. 

Staying power will help, understanding and kindliness 
are vital, and the strengthening of our spiritual life is all- 
important. 'The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord,' 
it shows the way and lightens the dark places. 'We shall 
be strong and of a good courage, not afraid or dismayed, 
for the Lord our God is with us, beside us, whithersoever 
we go.' " 


On October 7, Canon Lawrence spoke to the School, 
basing his sermon on a quotation taken from Hebrews v. 8: 
"Though he were a son, yet learned he obedience by the 
things which he suffered." 

We do not enter the world already educated, nor do 
we have any privileged road set for us to obtain great 
learning. Privilege secures only a degree without effort, 
but not real learning. In fact, St. Luke tells us that "he 
learned obedience by the things which he suffered." 

One would be wrong to suppose that the Divine Son 
owed obedience only to God. Musicians, writers, and car- 
penters must all pay attention to and obey the rules 
peculiar to their trade. In the same way, we must all give 
some attention to everyone, regardless of race, religion, and 
intellectual understanding. We are not free to do as we 
please. We become useful citizens only after having learned 
obedience. Similarly, Christ had to pay attention to and 
heed the circumstances of the the life he chose to share. 

Obedience and attention are connected as they are 
both derivatives of a common root, the Latin verb audire, 
to hear. While obedience implies the action, attention 
refers to the final result. Attention involves the concentra- 
tion of one's self on a definite idea. This is why our Lord 
required his disciples to "give up everything and follow me." 


Every teacher admits that successful teaching depends on 
the attention of his students. 

Divided attention is often the cause of such mental 
disorders as a split personality. Only those obedient to the 
condition involved reach the peak of learning. 

In this sense, "the things which he suffered" refers 
not to physical pain but rather to mental toleration. Our 
Lord in his life at Nazareth was forced to tolerate certain 
environmental conditions and also some of the more pain- 
ful consequences of his life. This obedience in its fullness 
is the knowledge of how to live properly the life of a man. 

We find ourselves today in an age of ever-decreasing 
"self-sufficiency." The necessity to be creative has almost 
completely vanished under the effects of ready-made clothes, 
pre-cooked food, mechanically produced music, and tele- 
vision. What chance remains for the expression of one's 
own personality? 

The success of democracy depends on the ability of the 
people to make decisions. This ability involves attention 
and obedience. There is no royal road. 

On October 14, Thanksgiving Sunday, Canon Bedford- 
Jones spoke on the giving of thanks. His text came from 
the Epistle of Saint Paul to the Corinthians; "He which 
soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully." 

We do not realize how much we owe to God and our 
fellow man. We are dependent on God and our neighbours 
for our existence, and we do little to give thanks unto our 

This truth is clearly illustrated in the story of two 
brothers who were invited to their uncle's home for dinner, 
and were promised for dessert something that had taken 
a thousand men to make. The two boys set off for their 
imcle's place in high expectation and could hardly wait for 
the dessert. 

When the first course was finished and the table cleared 
their aunt brought in the dessert. Much to their amaze- 


ment and disappointment, however, the dessert turned out 
to be a plum pudding. The boys thought that they had 
been tricked and they demanded an explanation from their 
uncle. The latter then related the story of the pudding, how 
the flour from which it had been made had been sown and 
harvested and milled by hundreds of workers and machines, 
which in turn had been made by hundreds more workers 
in factories, and how the flour had finally come to the end 
of its journey in the grocery store where their aunt had 
bought it to make the pudding. The boys then realized that 
there were more to whom they owed thanks than met the 
eye. Unfortunately, however, many people do not know 
what they owe, and thanksgiving is neglected. 

An only daughter was raised by her two loving parents 
and they gave her all that she desired. However, as years 
went on, the daughter took the kindness of her parents 
for granted, and she became selfish. She referred to her 
father as "the old man with the cheque book" and finally 
she eloped and left her parents heart-broken. Shakespeare 
once said: "How sharper than a serpent's tooth is it to 
have a thankless child." 

During the war, ten men were stranded in the ocean 
on a tiny life-raft, and after several days adrift they seemed 
doomed to certain starvation. They had all but given up 
hope when they heard the drone of a search aircraft, and 
in a short time they were picked up by a ship. Upon board- 
ing the ship they went to the wireless office and sent a 
message of thanksgiving to the crew of the aircraft. 

We too should send messages to God through our 
prayers and we should give that which we owe to him. As 
Saint Paul said, the more one gives or puts into something, 
the more in turn he gets out. This is one of the laws of 
God, and God gives us the power to follow these laws or 
do as we please, though he tries to persuade us to choose 
the right path and follow him. The more we show thanks- 
giving to the Lord the more we will benefit from following 
his holy paths. 



On October 21, Mr. H. A. Mowat addressed the School 
at the Sunday afternoon service. He began by pointing out 
the position of the peoples of European origin in the modern 
world. We occupy the areas of temperate climate, own 
eighty percent of the world's resources, and live in comfort 
without fear of hardship. However, the peoples of other 
races, who constitute two-thirds of the world's population, 
live crowded into the less favourable regions of the world, 
primarily the tropical countries, amid poverty and disease. 

In colonial times, the European powers fought for the 
world's backward areas, taking possession by subduing 
their inhabitants without considering their rights. The 
unfortunate position of many non-Europeans today is there- 
fore a hangover of western imperialism. It is our irrespon- 
sibility to help these underprivileged people to obtain their 
rightful share of the world's riches. The bearing of others' 
burdens, we were reminded, is a fulfillment of the Christian 
way of life which emphasizes the subordination of power 
to love, and the principle of sharing. Our democratic ideas 
make it possible for us to choose between the Christian 
assistance or selfish neglect of the world's less fortunate 
peoples; we must realize and act on our responsibility, to 
prevent conflict in the future. 

Mr. Mowat continued by advising us to follow the valuable 
examples of Sir William Osier, whom he believed to be the 
most accomplished of T.C.S. Old Boys and Canada's most 
distinguished son. Not only should we live in tight daily 
"compartments," as Osier suggested in his book, "A Way 
of Life," we should strive to display some of his outstand- 
ing concern over human suffering and the sacredness of 
life, which is typical of all great Christians. Another of 
Osier's admirable qualities was his strong belief in the 
necessity of prompt and sincere thanks. Mr. Mowat con- 
cluded his address, therefore, by urging us always, both 
at school and everywhere afterwards, to be quick in ex- 
pressing appreciation for our many privileges and blessings. 



On October 28, the School was greatly honoured to 
have the Rev. J. Mockridge, the brother of our oldest living 
Old Boy, speak in Sunday chapel. 

For his text, Mr. Mockridge took the words of Jacob, 
"This is none other than the House of God; this is the 
Gate of Heaven." These words were not, as one would 
expect, spoken in a magnificent cathedral by some im- 
portant person, but they were said by Jacob, who was 
selfish, dishonest, and crafty, had cheated his father and 
brother and was running for his life. He had forced his 
brother Esau to give up his birthright in return for food, 
and had fooled his father who was blinded with age into 
giving him the blessing. Jacob was in a dark, lonely place, 
frightened and exhausted. That night, however, he had 
a dream in which he saw angels ascending and descending 
to and from Heaven. He heard also the voice of God telling 
him that he would prosper, having fruitful lands and many 
descendants, and that God would be with him. 

When he awoke, despite the dream and his lack of 
knowledge about God, Jacob vowed that, if God would be 
with him, he would recognize the existence of God and 
give one-tenth of his wealth to Him. Despite his miscon- 
ception, God was with this man Jacob, who had been wicked 
and knew so little of God as to think he could barter with 

A famous writer once said that a person has three 
characters. The first is that which he is to himself, the 
second what he is in the minds of others, and finally what 
he is in the eyes of God. God saw in Jacob something that 
Jacob could not see in himself. Jacob now spent his life 
serving God, growing to understand him more fully than 
ever before. Even though Jacob had made mistakes in his 
life, he raised his children to serve God well, and was con- 
sequently respected by his descendants. Hence it may be 
seen that God can see in us what we don't see in ourselves. 



Referring once more to the text, "This is none other 
than the House of God," one notices that we differ a good 
deal from Jacob. We are not essentially bad, we are not 
running for our lives, and we are not forced to see the 
House of God in a lonely place. Our chapel was built for 
us without our help, and has been given to us as a gift. 
Indeed, the House of God as we today know it differs from 
Jacob's conception. 

It is said that a church is built as a covering for the 
altar — this is quite true. The altar is a dinner table where 
we celebrate a meal with bread and wine, the body and 
blood of Christ. As we grow older, we learn to appreciate 
more fully the teachings concerning the altar. Part of the 
altar is the cross on which Jesus died, not in trouble or 
because He deserved to, but because He was unselfish and 
willing to give his life for us and for our salvation. 

This "House of God" tells us of a God whom we may 
know as one of ourselves. He entered the world as an infant 
in a stable, passed from youth to manhood, and became a 
teacher, speaking the truth to all people, until his death 
on the cross while still a young man. He is our God and 
this is His house. If this is so, we should then make a 
larger place for His house in our lives. The Gloria, repeated 
many times in chapel, is like a cheer for God and our 
recognition of the fact that it is to Him that we give thanks. 
In concluding, Mr. Mockridge told the School to remember 
the story of Jacob, then think of His house into which we 
come and appreciate it more fully in our daily lives. 




Mr. R. P. Jellett ('92-'97) has given us the Church Flag 
which was adopted at the General Synod last year. It will 
be flown on Sundays. 

Mr. Harry Strickland ('83-'84) has sent a collection of 
music to the School which will be of great help to the 
Orchestra and Glee Club. He also sent a music stand. 

Mr. R. A. Bethune ('87-'96) has given us photographs 
of Teams of old days. 

Mr. Neil Bethune ('95-'99) has given a splendid collec- 
tion of books to the Library. 

Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Goering have sent many most in- 
teresting books to the Library. 

Mrs. John Moss and Mrs. C. S. Maclnnes have also sent 
books to the Library. 

Eric Morse ('17-'21) is giving us copies of Hansard 
and Mr. Brian Meredith has sent reports of U.N. meetings. 


Hugh Gordon made a most attractive Christmas Card 
from a woodcut which is being sold for the relief of refugees 
from Hungary. After being on sale for two days at a 
dollar a dozen some thirty dozen have been ordered. 

There was a special collection in Chapel on Advent 
Smiday for this purpose. The Headmaster explained that 
offerings were being given on this day in most Churches

Lawrenceville (650 boys) 

Choate (500 boys) 

Deerfield (500 boys) 

Nichols (350 boys) 

St. Paul's (450 boys) 

Taft (350 boys) 

Kimball Union (175 boys) 

T.C.S (185 boys) 

T.C.S. won the Tournament in January 1953 and 1954 
with teams captained by Mike dePencier and Ron Johnston 


The bell ends and we are off to get changed for Trinity's 
annual Hallowe'en Party. First on the agenda is the obstacle 
course. The Prefects have certainly made it tough; but 
what's this? . . . Hall and English are going to show us 
how to run it, well, let's see. They're off to a flying start 
but somehow this race is fixed. Cape and McKnight, who 
are holding a mat across the pommel horse, let Hall through 
but when English comes to it he has a little trouble. Of 
course Binnie disqualifies Hall (natch, he's in Bethune). 


Well, now for the New Boys ; Brent vs. Bethune. They start 
off on even terms. Everyone is killing himself to get 
through the obstacle course but somehow Brent has a better 
team and wins. 

Down at the pool the apple bobbing contest begins. 
Binnie roars for silence, recites the rules and says "jump." 
There's a flying melee of hands and feet and a crunching 
of heads meeting heads. Most of them swallow the pool 
before some genius decides to push the apples against the 
wall to make it easier. Bethune must be cheating — or else 
they've imported a bunch of seals. We charge but not for 
long; someone yells "food" and there's a general rush. 
Here's Binnie again blocking the door to the dining room: 
this is too much; we push and struggle and we're in. After 
gorging ourselves with food they let the others in for some 
crumbs. The chocolate bar hunt comes next in the gym- 
nasium and some Prefects try a new dodge, hiding the bars 
on themselves. They regret it. All in all the party is a 
great success and fun for all. 


On Wednesday, November 14, all members of the Fifth 
and Sixth Forms donned their new cadet uniforms and 
travelled to the R.C.A.F. station at Trenton. 

Upon their arrival, the group was welcomed by the 
Commanding Officer and the programme of activities was 
outlined. This included a visit to the Radarscope of the 
Ground-Controlled Approach system, a close view of several 
of the types of aircraft used by the R.C.A.F., a visit to the 
meteorological and flying control sections, and lastly an 
excursion flight in a Dakota aircraft. The groups, guided 
by three staff members, were then conducted on their 
various activities. 

Our cadets kept their four guides busy answering ques- 
tions concerning jet aircraft, the theory of flight, meteor- 
ology, and so on. Thus they added considerably to their 


previous knowledge concerning the function and operation 
of an air base. Shortly afterwards, the group had dinner 
in the airmen's mess which concluded a most interesting 
day at the station. 


On the evening of Sunday, November 11, an informal 
debate was held in the dining hall. Discussion centred 
around the recent crisis in the Suez, and was designed to 
give the boys in Fifth and Sixth Forms a further insight 
into the present critical world situation. After an intro- 
duction by Dr. Ketchum, Mr. Hodgetts commenced the dis- 
cussion with a description of power politics and its effect 
during the last century. Mr. Brown gave an excellent talk 
about "why the Suez Canal belongs to Egypt," giving us 
an insight into the views of Colonel Nasser. The next 
speaker, Mr. White, maintained that Britain was justified 
in her action because of the unreliability of Nasser, He 
pointed out that Britain's wheels of industry rely on the 
Suez waterway. There was no one to give the Russian 
viewpoint, but Mr. Dale gave a good account of what the 
U.N. and Canada are doing to help solve the crisis. 

The debate was now opened to the floor for general 
discussion. When this discussion had finished. Dr. Ketchum 
then introduced the guest of the evening, Mr. Max Le Mar- 
chant of Cobourg, who had made a study of the Near East 
and lived there for several years. For the balance of the 
evening, he spoke of the history of Suez, and the causes 
and factors involved. He sympathized most of the time with 
the Egyptian viewpoint. 

The entire discussion was a success, and the School 
is grateful to Mr. Le Marchant and the masters who con- 
tributed to this most interesting conference on the Suez 



The Oxford Cup race was run on Friday, November 17, 
which was a cold and windy day. Of the ten contestants 
who entered, eight finished the hard four point two mile 
cross-country race. The winner, Bob Hart, won with a time 
of twenty-five minutes thirty-nine seconds, extremely good 
under such bad running conditions. The order in which the 
boys finished is as follows : Bob Hart, Tom TurnbuU, Charles 
Colby, Hugh Gordon, John Braden, Peter Wurtele, Mike 
Powell and Fred Gordon. The first three finished very close 
together, Bob Hart, Hugh Gordon and Charlie Colby giving 
Bethune House a win by four points. 

Congratulations go to Bob Hart for a race well run. 
The first five to finish received half first team colours. 


It was overcast and cold as the School fell in at 9.45 
to take part in the Remembrance Day Service at the town 
Cenotaph. The Corps marched downtown led by Cadet 
Squadron Leader Dunbar to join the parade consisting of 
Navy cadets, Army Militia, Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. 
At the Cenotaph the parade made a square around the 
memorial with the Earlscourt Citadel Band providing the 
music for the hymns. A group of trumpeters from our ban^ 
sounded the Last Post and Reveille. Special praise was 
given to the band, under band sergeant Adam Saunders, 
for their excellent showing. 


Thanks to a hard-working corps of librarians, the 
Library has been able to keep up its high standard of service. 
Many new books have been added to our shelves this fall; 
to November 10 these totalled one hundred and forty-six. 
Many of these were donations, and we take this opportunity 


of thanking such good friends as Canon Stewart, Mrs. John 
Moss, Mrs. S. C. Goering, P. H. Lewis, Esq., and R. Savage 
for their generosity. Frequent gifts of magazines have also 
been made by Col. F. B. Wilson in England. 

By the time this goes to press, we expect the new shelf 
for paper-backed editions to be in use. This will enable us 
to buy books we could not ordinarily afford, and if the 
demand for any of them warrants it, we can then purchase 
a more permanent edition, knowing it to be worthwhile. 
Other new features this year include "Mr. Scott's Shelf" 
on which he puts half a dozen books which he specially 
recommends, and the English Reference Shelf on which are 
isolated those reference books of greatest use to Middle and 
Upper School English candidates. More recent is the 
Current Affairs section where pamphlets and magazines 
devoted mainly to the current world situation are displayed. 

So far this year the number of books circulated (avera- 
ging about eighty a week) is 57% higher than last year, 
but we are still trying to reach the hard core of boys who 
never seem to read at all. Fortunately, this group is shrink- 
ing, and perhaps by June we shall be able to report that 
it is as extinct as the Dodo.

In fifteen years the highest percentage of passes in the 
Upper School Examinations has been 93.7 and the lowest 
75.2; 86-90% seems to be the usual figure. First class 
honours run from a high of 31% in 1944 to a low of 11.3% 
in 1955.

Six of the nineteen boys in this form could be classed as 
candidates of considerable promise; only one in the form 
would seem to be among a selected group from the top five 
percent of Grade XIII students in the Province on the basis 
of the tests written in April (Scholastic Aptitude, School 
and College Ability, and Reading Test) . He won the highest 
number of first class honours — six. Under the circumstances, 
95% passes and 74% honours would seem a pretty good 

Most first class honours (75% + ) were obtained in 
Chemistry, 10; 6 in Algebra, 5 in French Authors, 5 in 
Modern History, 4 in English Literature, 4 in Physics; but 
we are far from satisfied with the number of firsts. 

The majority of failures came in VI B. There were 
twenty-one boys in this form, none of whom had achieved 
averages of better than 65% in the V Form or Grade XII 
work, and most of whom were just above or just below 
60%. The results were as follows:

It will be seen that more boys failed in French than in 
any other subject. This class was weak in language work, 
not even doing well in their native tongue, but they should 
have had more success. 

Some comments may be in order: 

(1) The VI Form boys of 1955-1956 were a particularly 
good all-round group but not many of them were real 

(2) They took a full part in the life of the School and 
will be better citizens for it but some of them could 
possibly ill afford to spend time on anything but school 

(3) This year there were fifteen more candidates than in 
1955 and they wrote 142 more papers. 

(4) In many schools VIB boys would not have attempted 
the full programme of nine papers. 

(5) A year ago I remarked to the staff that the Upper 
School students were not, as a group, very strong 
scholars and that they were all attempting full courses 
which meant a real challenge to our teaching. The 
Aptitude Tests written in April by Grade XIII pupils 
in Ontario show that with one exception all our VIB 
boys were in the bottom 50% in GJeneral Mathematical 
or Verbal ability, or in both. The one exception passed 
all his papers, with seven honours. The VIA boys made 
much better scores but again they were not among 


the top four hundred in the Province on the basis of 
the April Aptitude Tests. 

(6) It seems obvious that most teachers of Grade XIII sub- 
jects in Ontario are preparing their classes principally 
to write examinations, and we may have to follow suit 
more than we have in the past. I do not believe this 
type of preparation is best for University work, or for 
general education. 

(7) It is rare now for T.C.S. boys to spend two years in 
our Sixth Form: some other schools urge boys to do 
so in order that they may win scholarships, but the 
added year might be more profitably spent in graduate 

(8) The Upper School examinations are the only external 
examinations pupils write until the end of their Uni- 
versity work. There is naturally a certain strain and 
anxiety created and when the first paper is as unusual 
and diificult as the first paper last June, Greometry, 
some candidates are confused and disheartened and do 
not make as capable an effort as they might. 

(9) T.C.S. boys learn much in addition to their book work 
and it stands them in good stead in later years. In 
proportion to the numbers entering Universities it is 
unlikely that any other group has done so well both 
in scholarships won within the Universities and in the 
many educational activities which are an important 
part of the life of Universities, 

(10) But we are striving more than ever to raise still 
further the standard of class work throughout the 
School: the best students can win more honours, the 
borderline boys can be more sure of passing. Measures 
have already been taken and are being taken to this end. 



Greetings from Lee Fong's sitting quarters deep in 
the heart of the boiler room. Through hazy smoke comes 
the voice of Saul Keeb to leak out its uncommon informa- 
tion. Herewith scandal! 

Strains of ORGAN music drift from a shabby hovel 
with a SMILEY face on the door, while somebody insists 
on singing BEE BOP a lula. Nearby, a busy gambling 
saloon swings into action as SPADE and Til SHARPY rake 
in the profits. Clanks of machinery fill the air as LEO 
traditionally manufactures radios and automatic moon- 
shine stills. But TOM'S burlesque show beats them all; it's 
really OH ! KAY. Far away, a hairy figure is seen dragging 
his unfaithful fag across the tiled floor of his abode ???? 
No noise seems to come from a little room in Trinity. Is 
the BEAR hibernating or just content with the present 
situation. STEW and FUZZ have also provided quite well 
for their future life. Married? 

Meanwhile, back in the social life, we hear a laugh as 
poor trooper loses his dog food. Does MARK prefer Gaines 
or Pard. Loose-living FISH looked very haappyy and 
STREAK got the Elvis urge. We also hear how LIMEY 
and PIGLET got taken for a ride in the old mill (or was 
it the writer?). 




Radio station OICU, your peekaboo station brings you 
the news. But first a word from our sponsor. 

Have you tried "WOOF Dog Biscuits?" All dogs love 
them, humans too. They are ideal for snacks in the wee 
small hours of the morning. MARK my words, it's the 
truth. So rush right down to TONY'S Grocery store and 
buy yours now. HERE IS THE NEWS— 

Top Dorm. The Brent House Security Council was 
called to an emergency session to discuss the revolution 
in top dorm. Ring leader HASSEL has armed himself with 
a goal post and a tiger. The situation is very serious. 

Middle Dorm. Flying suitcases have cost one member 
of the dorm, the PRICE of a broken leg. 

On the flats, the goings on have disGUSted J. B. so 
much that he is seeing RED. GERRY has BILLt a radio 
station from which can be heard your favourite programme, 
"Mostly ELVIS." Competition comes from WES's Rock 
and Roll Room. 

A meeting has been called between Prime Minister 
HYDE and President McLAREN to discuss the phenomenon 
of a human form trying to cRAM its way through the 
window to fly. 

In the HALL nightly sessions have been held with 
DON on the tromBOne and WEEPER on the drums. 

In the world of sport, RUSTY, while BOMBing down 
the football field, can be heard discussing Hickman's hunches 
as Bayou back FISH STREAKS by reading S I's latest. 

The weather forecaster predicts rain, so unless you 
have NO BRAINS you won't be going out for a PHIL with 
the BIGSIDE boys. 


If you think that these puns are bad, you ought to 
hear COLIN, his are PUNy, but SPADE digs them the most. 


Lady Bethune has decided that "Ya gotta have HART" 
if you want to win the Oxford Cup. 

Up above, all is quiet and the order "DORMons" has 
been extraordinarily well heeded. On the flat, however, the 
gentle sex seem to be causing a commotion. CAW is off in 
the country in sorrow since his favourite HEATHER patch 
is no longer there. TWIG'S T.V. loss didn't help matters 
much, especially since Jane-Anne was due to appear on 
the screen. The home of the Golden Gaels and LIZ are 
beckoning JAMIE JUG-EARS to come back. The "inter- 
com" sez that TOM is welcome to that 90% deal. 

From Middle Dorm comes the faint S.O.S. from BARRY 
as the FROGS are closing in for another attack. 

In the Middle Flat of THE HOUSE, MOOCHER 
MOW AT has taken a liking to WOODY'S peanut butter. 
Also on the flat, we see that 201 has become more homely 
as they have beds. SHIRRIFF has himself in a jam over 
the rapid-shave situation, as DOUG seems to have other 
uses for it other than shaving. 

Getting back down to earth, we hear every morning 
the vocal chords of HERBERT as they burst forth with 
his well known theme "Getting To Know You." WINI- 
FRED is all in a dither over the mysterious letter, and by 
a strange coincidence the green shoe-laces are seen in the 
squash courts every afternoon. At the other end of the 
hall bun's aerodynamical noises have us convinced that 
we are still at Trenton. The mice were getting the best of 
NEEK until he opened his big TRAP. It appears that 
ALLEN'S European harem just won't stay away. The two 
inhabitants of GERALD'S joint have plastered upon their 
wall the formula for a milk drink in all languages. TIM'S 
sole wish is to attain KEN'S long lost touch on the type- 



writer. PERRIN and GROPO are through for the season 
because, as the promoters say, "it's fixed." 

FATHER PFREUD has been trying to knock it into 
CHARLIE'S head that the stork can't fly without WINGs. 
The Hi-Fi from 106 seems to have taken over from where 
a former Brentite left off. PESCADO is trying desperately 
to join "SNATCH'S all-stars," and it sounds as though he 
might succeed. To all reports DIRTY AL is winning with 
the letter race. Shucks TOM! 

That's about it from HER MAJESTY LADY 
BETHUNE. But, if NASSER will permit, she'll have more 
next edition, so hope and pray folks! 


As autumn's paint brush splashes its multitude of 
colours over Canada's northeastern forests, a strange and 
wonderful annual event begins. Birds of many sorts con- 
gregate together into their various families and prepare 
for the great migration, the exodus from the advancing 
cold waves of oncoming winter, to their warm retreats in 
the south. 

Among the last to leave is a small but famous stock 
of birds called Canadian Snow Geese. These birds, named 
for their almost completely white feather coat, are among 
the largest of the world's geese. By the time the yoimg 


fowl, hatched in the spring, are ready to fly south, they 
weigh from fifteen to twenty-five pounds and have a wing 
span from four to five feet. A full grown snow goose may 
weigh from thirty to forty pounds. This is a far cry from 
their cousin, the Canada Goose, which, at full growth, 
weighs, on the average, only fifteen pounds. The strength 
of the snow goose is proportional to his weight and size. 
It has, on occasion, been known to break a man's arm by 
flying at him and striking him with a wing. 

Twenty years ago, snow geese were plentiful and re- 
producing at a normal rate. However, due to a disease 
which was killing off their young, their numbers decreased 
critically over the years. In 1948, they had been depleted 
to a dangerous state of about four or five thousand, and 
were rapidly becoming extinct. In order to remedy this, 
the Audubon Society of Canada set up a research organiza- 
tion, whose aim was to find the killer of the flock. As a 
result of their efforts, the birds have tripled their num- 
bers in the past seven years, and are still increasing. It is 
interesting to note that this is one of the few cases in which 
man has been able to save a species from extinction. 

On their trip south they rest on the mud flats of the 
St. Lawrence River, about thirty miles east of Quebec City. 
Here they remain for nearly two weeks, feeding on the 
coarse grain which thrives in this area. Because they feed 
on grain and have eating habits similar to those of domestic 
fowl, they make an excellent dish and their meat is a happy 
medium between that of wild duck and roasted turkey. 

For this reason, they are "the hunter's dream" and 
attract sportsmen from near and far every fall. I say 
'sportsmen' because, indeed, that is what one must be to 
shoot these valuable birds. They are, in fact, very in- 
telligent and will not fly low enough to present a hunter 
with an easy target. To shoot them, it is necessary to dig 
a pit, walled with logs, and place over it a camouflaged 
cover with slats in it through which the birds may be seen. 
When they come into sight, attracted by painted tin decoys, 
the cover is thrown off and some rapid shooting commences. 


Even this is tricky. The snow geese have a protective breast 
plate of oily down which is almost impenetrable to even 
a high gauge shot. This means that they must be shot from 
behind, in order to get under the feathers. Because of all 
this difficulty in shooting the geese, only a few are actually 
shot each year; on the average, about five hundred. 

As with all things of this sort, a record has been set 
for the greatest number shot in one season. However, this 
time it seems to have been done in a rather unusual un- 
orthodox way. 

Several years ago a local farmer discovered that one 
of his prize dairy cows had died of an unknown cause. 
Deciding to make the best of his plight, he proceeded to 
skin the dead animal, build a frame large enough for a man 
to sit comfortably inside, and stretch the deceased cow's 
exterior over it, cutting a trap in the top. For several days 
he let a horse haul his masterpiece around the marshes in 
a flat boat, so that the birds would get used to it. Needless 
to say, when he eventually put his invention to use, it paid 
a great dividend. He gained a phenomenal score because, 
intelligent as the birds were, they were quite incapable of 
understanding how a cow could float around in the marsh 
shooting at them. So too, for several days were the inven- 
tor's fellow hunters. When, however, they did investigate 
more closely, the habitant was, by popular consent, obliged 
to quit for the season. The incident caused so much in- 
dignation at the unfair competition that, it is said, a rumour 
was circulated that a by-law had been passed, forbidding 
hunters to hide inside cows, deceased or otherwise, while 
shooting geese. 

When the season is ended, with the coming of the snow 
and the freezing of the river, the geese proceed upon their 
journey south. As their great wings lift them from the 
marshes and the mud flats, and they congregate overhead, 
they look for all the world like a great snow cloud until, 
at last, they take up their V-formation and bid Canada 
good-bye with a multitude of flapping wings.

Christmas is a Holy Day 

He came with us to stay: 

Through gallant hearts each year by year, 

Though times oppress, we draw more near 

To His abiding way. 


If now above our darkened earth 

A star was bom, defying night, 
Would we not too suspect its birth, 

And point destruction at the light? 

If in our Parliament, a boy 

Taught truth to leaders of our race, 

Would they not murmur to destroy 
So strange a voice, in such a place? 

If in this warring time, a man 

Refused the gods of force and greed. 

Would he escape our human plan 

Whereby the sons of Europe bleed? — 

Our life his drink, where soldiers mix 
Poison with wine; our words his whips; 

Our faithlessness his crucifix; 

Our fear the blows that bruise his lips; 

Each month of war a hammered nail 
Hanging his flesh from groaning wood: — 

Thunder has torn the lying veil. 
He, not the world, has understood.

Only two more hours 'til starting time. My mechanic 
is doing the last minute adjustments on the engine and 
checking the brakes and steering. 

The other drivers are pacing around impatiently or 
getting a bite to eat. 

With fifteen minutes to go, we wheel the cars out to 
the starting line and adjust our crash helmets. Two minutes! 
Most of us are already behind the wheel and those that 
are not are scrambling in. The high-powered engines spring 
to life with a roar. 

The flag goes down! The cars leap forward amid dust 
and smoke from the tires. We go faster and faster until 
the noise of the engine reaches a high whine. I am abreast 
of two cars and the first bend is coming up. I'm forced over 
onto the outside and a red car goes past me. On the 
straight I pass him along with two other cars. I'm in third 

The next bend I get on the inside; the car in front of 
me forces it and skids! I'm going towards him! I swing 
wide and miss him as he turns over and goes off the road. 
Now I'm in second place! Two other cars are close behind 
me. The next curve — a hairpin turn! We gear down! the 
car in front of me gets through but the two behind pile up 
on the retaining wall. Still in second place, I battle it out 
vdth number one well behind into the second lap. On the 
second bend I hit an oil patch! Oily skids. My steering and 
brakes are useless. A car comes sliding around the bend! 
He skids and hits the back of my car! I'm out of the oil! 
Ive dropped down to fourth place and three cars are on my 

On the next curve I catch up with the number three car 
— I'm abreast of him! We battle it out until I skid and hit 
him, pushing him off the road. I jump into third place. The 
three of us are in the lead by ourselves. For the next two 
laps we hold the same positions. 


During the fifth lap, number one's engine burns up and 
he grinds to a halt. Now only two of us are in the battle 
for first place! We round the next bend and find ourselves 
facing two spinning cars which have hit the oil patch! The 
car in front of me fails to find an opening and turns over, 
burstmg into flames! I get through! I'm in the lead! In 
the next lap more cars pile up on the hairpin bend ahnost 
bloclang the road. I gear down to slow up. I get through 
the small gap! Two cars are on my tail! They stay there 
until one of them loses a wheel and goes over the side. On 
the straight I gain more and more speed! One twenty, one

I'm out of control! Closer! Closer! 

There's a sickening crash! Flames and 

Jagged steel encircle me! Everything goes

We saw Thee in Thy balmy nest. 

Young dawn of our eternal day; 
We saw Thine eyes break from the East, 

And chase the trembling shades away: 
We saw Thee, and we blest the sight. 
We saw Thee by Thine own sweet light. 

To Thee, meek Majesty, soft King 

Of simple graces and sweet loves! 
Each of us his lamb will bring, 

Each his pair of silver doves! 
At last, in fire of Thy fair eyes. 
Ourselves become our own best sacrifice! 

—Richard Crashaw (1613-1649). 




In the north-east section of the Mediterranean Hes a 
small island which is taking more than its share of head- 
Imes in the world today. This island is Cyprus. Two-thirds 
of its 425,000 inhabitants are Greek, or of Greek origin; the 
remainder are Turkish. In the last few months, British rule 
m Cyprus has become very shaky because of the fighting 
on this small island. 

During recent months, Cypriots have been raiding small 
convoys and throwing bombs into stores and homes, as 
well as on the streets. Until a recent curfew, Britain has 
been unsuccessful in her attempts to quell the fighting that 
has affected all parts of the island. 

Unlike many other people in the world, the Greek 
Cypriots want union with Greece and not free home rule. This 
is harder for Britain to accept than the latter, for to give 
an island to another country involves problems for the other 
islanders not of Greek origin. But through actions and 
words, the Cypriots have indicated that they will not stop 
fighting until they are driven off the islands, or the British 
done away with. 

The smaller portion of the population, the Turks, are 
beginning to realize that union with Turkey is out of the 
question. Even though they do not like it, they must now 
stick by Britain and her forces. If England decides to give 
up the island, the Turks may well find themselves out in 
the Mediterranean Sea. 

Now to the British point of view of this strategically 
situated island. From here, Britain can watch and defend 
her many interests in the Near East, especially her oil. 
With the crisis in the Suez, some troops from England and 
France are using Cyprus as a base and "jumping-off point" 
in case of trouble. With the "Big Rock" in the west and 
Cyprus in the east, in time of war the Mediterranean Sea 
would remain safe to shipping from marine attack at least. 
To lose another colony and base would be disastrous to 
Britain's already dropping prestige. 


To sum up the situation, Cyprus is a small island with 
a small population pitted against a great power. It seems 
obvious that Britain with all her troops could step in and 
wipe out the island. In view of the world situation, this is 
unlikely, as it would give Russia good propaganda and would 
create greater world tension. When and how a settlement 
will be reached will be told by time only.

Ox and ass at Bethlehem 
On a night, ye know of them: 
We were only creatures small 
Hid by shadows on the wall. 

We were swallow, moth and mouse; 
The Christ was born in our house, 
And the bright eyes of us three 
Peeped at His Nativity. 

Hands of peace upon that place 
Hushed our beings for a space — 
Quiet feet and folded wing, 
Not a sound of anything. 

With a moving star we crept 
Closer when the Baby slept: 
Men who guarded where He lay 
Moved to frighten us away. 

But the Babe, awakened, laid 
Love on things that were afraid. 
With so sweet a gesture He 
Called us to His company. 

— Bruce Blunt 
(From the Mercury Book of Verse) 



A stocky-olive-skinned man was walking with a strong 
and carefree stride along the country lane. He whistled 
gaily as if to show anyone who might notice his heroically 
battered uniform that he had seen hard times. He screwed 
up his eyes as he looked into the hot Italian sky. Then, 
blinking, he traced the geometric designs of the surrounding 
vineyards to their fusion in the distance over the gently 
undulating hills. A persistent ache in his bones from walk- 
ing along those dusty roads went unnoticed as he thought 
of Gina. 

His name was Antonio. He had been fighting in a 
rebellion against the government, and recalled painfully the 
recent dispersion of his band of heroes when their ammuni- 
tion had given out. Antonio himself had been a successful 
leader in some of his band's escapades. But now that the 
cause was lost, he was going home to claim the hand of his 
beloved Gina. 

Antonio hastened his step, for there were only a few 
miles to go before he would reach his little village. Since 
his throat was parched, he looked around for a house to 
relieve his thirst. He saw a small, white, block-like building 
ahead and decided to ask for a drink. As he drew close, he 
saw a figure working busily beside a house among the vines. 

The labourer turned at his greeting and Antonio 
recognized him instantly. The man dropped his hoe on the 
sunbaked earth and ran forward to greet his old friend. 

"How are you, Antonio?" he said, warmly shaking his 

Antonio rephed, '"It's great to see you again, Rici!" 
Soon the two were chatting excitedly over a glass of heady 
wine. When Antonio asked afer Gina, his friend's smile 

"Oh, I haven't seen her for some time, you know. But 
tell me, Antonio, do you still want to marry her?" 

"Oh, yes!" replied Antonio emphatically. 


"I have heard," said the other guardedly, "that she 
has been seeing your friend Pieta." 

"Oh, really," said Antonio coolly. 

Then, unexpectedly, Rici said, "I hope that she's good 
enough for you, Antonio." 

"Of course she is!" said Antonio, hotly, and he abruptly 
took his leave. 

As Antonio's feet began, once again, to swing with a 
measured beat on the road, his thoughts turned to Gina. 
So Pieta has been seeing her, he mused. "No!" he said, 
aloud, "Pieta wouldn't play such a trick on me." But there 
was uncertainty in his voice. 

He remembered the days when he and Gina used to 
wander the countryside, very much absorbed in the hap- 
piness of each other's company. He recalled her smiling 
eyes and her classical face, which might have been sculp- 
tured by an enraptured Michael Angelo. He remembered 
how her hair fell in strands of burnished ebony onto her 

Antonio walked to the brow of the hill beyond which 
lay the village. He didn't stop to look at the familiar scene, 
but hurried on, straight past his own house, he glanced 
over his shoulder, however, to make sure that no one had 
seen him do so. Antonio paused before Gina's house. Then, 
stepping forward, he gave three hard knocks to the roughly 
hewn door. He knew he was nervous and could feel his 
heart thumping loudly. Gina's mother opened the door. 

"Why, Antonio — you're back! Come in! Come in!" 

"Thank you, Mrs. Cellini, but where's Gina?" asked 
Antonio eagerly. 

"Why, Antonio, Gina has married your old friend Pieta. 
Didn't you hear?"

And so ends another successful season of football with 
T.C.S. sharing the Little Big Four laurels with S.A.C. After 
losing the opener, perhaps some people had their doubts 
but the team lost nothing in willpower and determination 
and that was the only defeat in the whole season. Mr. 
Lawson is to be congratulated on his team's success in 
his first year of coaching it. With almost the whole team 
returning, we wish them luck for next year. We have been 
on top of the heap now four times in the last seven years, 
a record almost as good as the three out of four champion- 
ships from 1908-1911. 

Mr. Heard in his first year of coaching at the School 
produced a fast-starting, hard-hitting team using his own 
adaptation of the single wing. Middleside made many fine 
runners and blockers out of boys who have never played 
before and have developed five or six stars for next year's 
Bigside. Littleside, who were not too promising at first, 
came back to show that Mr. Landry never misses in creating 
a firm and potent team. 

Both leagues fought it out to the last with the Whizzers 
taking the Groundhogs in the dark, while Mr. Massey's 
Monsters swept Mr. Dale's Demons in a gruelling match. 


The House football went to Brent on all three levels 
but Bethune managed to take one and a half soccer games 
to split the title. 

Never have so many young boys been seen rimning in 
the Oxford Cup as this year. Out of ten entries only one 
of them was from Sixth Form, three from Fifth and the 
rest from Fourth. The runners had to trim their sails to 
head into the gale but Hart managed to cross with an 
amazing 25' 39" as Bethune took the trophy 16-20.

Trinity College School, 20; Saint Andrew's College, 27 
October 20 

Under an overcast October sky, drizzling steadily upon 
the T.C.S. gridiron, the undefeated Trinity team received 
its first defeat at the hands of a hard-charging, hard-play- 
ing S.A.C. squad. The final score proved to be 27-20 for 
our visitors. 

In the first quarter both teams played possession ball, 
hoping to power their way through centre or break a man 
loose around the end. However, as rugged tackling on both 
sides prevented much headway in either direction, a kick- 
ing duel developed between Hall of T.C.S. and Muirhead 
of S.A.C. Terry Hall had the edge, and with the minute 
flag up, lifted a boot clean over the S.A.C. deadline for 
the point. 

In the second quarter S.A.C. flashed its suspected 
power when they broke Muirhead loose off tackle several 
times, twice culminating in long range TDs. Their first 
convert attempt fell short of the cross-bar, but the second 
neatly split the uprights. Both teams fought with bruising 
power in the dying minutes of the quarter, but to no avail. 
S.A.C. led at the half, 13-1. 

Trinity's opening attack in the second half failed to 
succeed, and after taking Hall's punt, the Saint's again

sent Muirhead into the clear on a long touchdown gallop. 
The convert was good. A T.C.S. march was again thwarted 
when Muirhead intercepted a pass, and hung up TD number 
four several plays later. Once again the convert was suc- 

Carrying a 27-1 deficit, a very spirited, determined 
T.C.S. team turned the S.A.C. kick-off into a touchdown 
march. After several short gains through the line, Al Shier 
dropped back behind solid blocking and rifled a long pass 
to a fleet-footed Terry Hall who snagged the ball on the 
S.A.C. ten and went all the way. Dave Marett's unsuccessful 
convert attempt hit the goal-post and bounced "in the wrong 

In the opening minutes of the foiu*th quarter, a 
charging Trinity line blocked Muirhead's punt and re- 
covered the ball. After a first down had been gained around 
the end, Rusty Dunbar threw a perfect strike to Hall who 
sprinted into the end zone for the score. A well-executed 
convert brought the score up to 27-14, S.A.C. leading. 

At this point the Saints found trouble no matter what 
they tried, as T.C.S. defenders swarmed into their back- 
field before the play had materialized. It was anybody's 
ball game now. 

With five minutes to go, Trinity ball, Al Shier faded 
back into his passing pocket and fired another superb pass 
to Hall, galloping into the end zone for his third touch- 
down of the day. A convert attempt failed, and S.A.C. re- 
tained their now shaky lead of 27-20. 

The Saints scoop up the resulting kick-off, but fumble 
on the next play. T.C.S. recovers. Signals are called. A 
maroon sweater sprints around right end. It's Hall on the 
option play. He looks, throws to Adam . . . incomplete. No, 
interference called against S.A.C! T.C.S. first down on the 
Saint Andrew's thirty! Less than a minute to go, another 
pass . . . incomplete! Last play of the game. Shier fades, 
looks, throws . . . incomplete and the game is over! S.A.C. 
comes out on top, 27-20, 


Meanwhile at Ridley, the Tigers have beaten Upper 
Canada College 14-13 on a last minute sleeper play. The 
race is on! 


Trinity College School, 14; Bishop Ridley College, 13 
October 27 

Bigside's second game in this year's Little Big Four 
campaign was a 14-13 victory over Ridley at U.C.C. The 
weather was strictly football weather: a cool day, bright 
sunlight, little wind, and soft turf. It was estimated that 
fifteen hundred people watched the battle. 

T.C.S. kicked-off to a Ridley backfielder who was up- 
ended at his ovsTi twenty. Ridley failed to make a first down 
and punted out of danger. After several running plays, 
gaining two first downs, Rusty Dunbar completed a thirty- 
five yard pass play to Terry Hall who dodged several 
potential Ridley tacklers and crossed the goal line standing 
up. Dave Marett's convert made it 7-0. 

The play continued quickly and smoothly, both teams 
making strong marches, but running out of steam as they 
neared the opposing goal line. In the opening minutes of 
the second quarter a determined Ridley team fought their 
v/ay downfield to the Trinity ten yard line. From there, a 
deceptive hand-off did the trick with Powell crashing over 
centre and ploughing his way into the end zone. The convert 
was wide. 

The game resumed its rugged, sea-saw type of play, 
neither side showing distinct superiority. A routine back- 
field lateral brought disaster to T.C.S. when the backfielder 
was hit from behind and the resulting throw was picked 
off by Ridley's Matheson v/ho outran the opposition to make 
the Tiger score. The convert attempt was again wide. 
Minutes later the half ended, with Ridley leading 12-7. 

The second half began as the first had ended. Solid 
blocking enabled both teams to gain good yardage, both 


along the ground and in the air, but hard tackling prevented 
any score from being made. A potential Ridley scoring 
attack was driven into the ground at the T.C.S. thirty, but 
Dunlop kicked a beauty over the T.C.S. deadline, to increase 
the Ridley lead to 13-7. 

It was well into the last quarter when Trinity put on a 
sustained downfield march. Gaping holes were slashed in 
the Ridley defence by Trinity's line, and were quickly utilized 
by the T.C.S. backfield. When these gaps were filled by 
reinforcements, the Trinity team successfully completed 
pass plays to continue the drive. The march was culminated 
by a touchdown when Al Shier plunged over from six yards 
out. The convert attempt was not successful, leaving the 
ball game all tied up at 13-13, with less than five minutes 
to go. 

After the kick-off, Ridley found itself unable to get 
anywhere against a fighting Trinity defense and the Trinity 
team took over the ball. At this point the T.C.S. squad was 
really on fire, well on their way to another touchdown. Then 
the minute flag began to wave menacingly from the northern 
sideline. T.C.S. went into punt formation with Terry Hall 
deep. Brit Mockridge's snap was good, and the kick sailed 
over outstretched Ridley fingers and across the deadline for 
an automatic point. Trinity took over the lead by a one 
point margin, 14-13. 

The Ridley team gained possession on their own twenty 
yard line, with a matter of seconds left to play. Two long 
passes were attempted but smothered by a determined 
T.C.S. defense. The flag dropped and the game was over. 
T.C.S. - 14. B.R.C. - 13. 

Meanwhile at Aurora UC.C. had upset Saint Andrew's 
13-6, and the Little Big Four was all tied up, each team 
having one loss and one win. 


Trinity College School, 9; Upper Canada College, 1. 
November 3, 1956, at U.C.C. 

Saturday, November 3, like the previous Saturday, was 
a glorious day for football. Clear skies and solid turf pro- 
vided excellent conditions for the offensive strategy of 
both teams, and gave promise of a really great gridiron 
battle. For both schools this would be their last and most 
crucial game, for, with the winner of the afternoon game 
up at Aurora, the victor would be co-champion of the Little 
Big Four. The Trinity squad had come in from Port Hope 
that morning and were out on the field well before kick- 
off time at 10.30. This being U.C.C.'s home game, T.C.S. 
was given the choice and elected to receive. 

Trinity ran the Upper Canada kick-off back to their 
own forty before succumbing to a swarm of blue-shirted 
tacklers. After an initial series of running plays had stalled, 
T.C.S. was forced to kick. From this point on, tremendous 
defensive line play by each team caused frequent exchange 
of possession of the ball. Late in the quarter Trinity's Al 
Shier rifled a thirty yard pass to Dave Marett who was 
hit and dropped on the U.C.C. thirty-five. After a series 
of line plunges had brought the ball down to the six, Al 
Shier sprinted through a giant hole, neatly eluded a U.C.C. 
secondary, and crossed the goal line standing up for the 
touchdown. Dave Marett's convert attempt was good, and 
T.C.S. led 7-0. 

U.C.C. was in possession of the ball for most of the 
second quarter, but due to the powerful tackling of the 
T.C.S. defenders, notably Colin McNairn, Doug Higgins, 
Blaine Bowen, John Mockridge, Kenny Scott, Tim Kennish, 
and Pete Perrin, they were unable to push it over for a 
score. Their final attempt, a long touchdown-bound pass, 
was slapped down in the Trinity end zone. At this point 
the Maroon and Black began to roll again, but were stopped 
by the clock on the U.C.C. thirty-four. On the last play 
of the half, the U.C.C. backfielder, upon receiving Terry 


Hall's punt, was bowled over by Blaine Bowen in the end 
zone, giving Trinity an 8-0 half-time lead. 

In the second half both teams played possession foot- 
ball, preferring to batter their way along the ground to 
the gamble of a wide open aerial game. This was partly 
due to the highly successful Trinity pass defense which 
covered the receivers so closely that their passer was often 
caught before he could find an opening. U.C.C.'s game 
record: twelve passes thrown, three complete, one inter- 

Late in the third quarter, T.C.S. was rouged by College 
tacklers after a beautiful sixty-five yard kick by U.C.C.'s 
John Schley. 

The U.C.C. team seemed to catch inspiration from this 
fine effort, and after changing ends going into the fourth 
quarter, they began a determined downfield march. Once 
again it was the watchfulness of the T.C.S. pass defense 
which saved the day when Colin McNairn leaped high into 
the air to intercept a pass and run it back to the U.C.C. 
thirty before being knocked out of bounds. An end run 
and pass attempt failed to click, and Trinity was forced to 
punt. After receiving Terry Hall's kick, the U.C.C. back- 
fielder was downed by Rick Newland behind the goal line 
for the point. 

Five minutes to go, and the College was far from con- 
ceding the game. They started on their own twenty and 
desperately fought their way over the midfield stripe and 
down into Trinity territory. With the minute flag up, a 
U.C.C. backfielder faded, trying to find a pass receiver who 
had shaken himself loose . . . there was none! The ball 
squirted out of the hands of the receiver and Trinity's Tony 
Lash dove in to recover the fumble. Several more T.C.S. 
line plunges were all that remained in the game, for sec- 
onds later the flag fell. T.C.S. emerged the winners and 
co-champions of the Little Big Four. 

That same afternoon, at Saint Andrew's College in 
Aurora, the Saints' defeated the Ridley Tigers in another 
hard fought battle to become co-champions. 



Congratulations to the winners and to Ridley and U.C.C.,

Somewhat less attractive than their counterparts in the 
high schools, four men in white stand at the sidelines pro- 
voking voluble yells accompanied by numerous gesticulations 
and genuflexions. It is indeed time that we paid tribute 
to these enthusiastic gentlemen. Poor fellows — they receive 
all the blame for hoarse voices. 


In all seriousness, the job the cheerleaders have done 
this year has been really wonderful. Their assistance at 
rallies and encouragement to the team have made them a 
part of the team's success. We thank Bill Porritt, chief 
organizer of the group, George McCullagh, Hugh Ellis and 
Adrian Grant Duff. Their assistance was invaluable. 


A winning football team usually attributes its success 
to one or more of three factors : power, deception and speed. 
Our single wing system, developed over the last ten years 
by Mr. Hodgetts, enables our teams to concentrate what 
power we have and to develop considerable deception 
through spins and screening. Because every boy has a part 
in every play, conscientious conditioning is essential, 
especially for the guards and tackles, whose running blocks 
constitute one of football's most difficult and exacting 
techniques. This year we had in Scott, Bowen and Kennish, 
three fine running blockers. The other mechanical keys 
to our success were Shier's powerful plunging and passing, 
combined with Dunbar's deceptive speed and Hall's ex- 
ceptional ability as a pass receiver. So we were able to 
score 185 points in eight matches, an average of 23 points 
per match. The fact that our opponents amassed only 
eighty-six points can be attributed to the determination of 
every T.C.S. player to be a tackier. Higgins, McNairn and 
Perrin were outstanding tacklers. 

Yet none of the statistics provides the real key to Big- 
side's success. This team was no powerhouse; it averaged 
163 pounds and 17.3 years in age. But it had three secrets. 
The first was friendship. More than one-half of them had 
played together in the Junior School. They valued each 
other and played for each other, substituting encouragement 
for criticism, and the first person plural for the second. 
Thus, for example, Tony Lash was enabled to develop from 
scratch into a capable quarterback without fear of back- 


seat drivers. Their second secret was selflessness. Each 
boy made room for T.C.S.'s 13th man by submerging the 
natural desire to outshine his teammates, and by striving 
simply to play his part with ever increasing effectiveness. 
No one acted as if he knew it already. Terry Hall was sure 
to shine as a kicker and pass-receiver but he determined 
to become a proficient blocker and what a difference it made 
to us. Their third secret was fun. It is no easy task to 
practise and play modern football entirely as a game. No 
sport requires more of the whole boy-body, mind and heart. 
He has a great deal to memorize and many techniques to 
master. And with the pressure of all the other activities 
and responsibilities inherent in boarding school life, the 
nine hours of sleep per night so essential to the student 
footballer, are not easy to find. Bigside managed to win a 
co-championship and to have great fun at the same time. 
Rusty Dunbar's irrepressible buoyancy had something to 
do with it; the strains of "Embracable You" were not un- 
usual at the bottom of a pile -up. His team was able to 
forget about the importance of winning, and to play whole- 
heartedly simply for the love of the game and the honour 
of the School. Little wonder that the coach found his task 
this year a challenging privilege and a satisfying pleasure.

In the House game, Brent, having most of the Bigside 
players, scored a decisive victory over Bethune. Terry Hall 
opened the scoring, after receiving a long pass from Rusty 
Dunbar, and running the remaining 20 yards for a touch- 
down. Dave Marett kicked the convert. Shortly afterwards, 
Rusty scored, carrying the ball from the 40-yard line. The 
convert attempt was unsuccessful. Bethune retaliated, using 
a split-T formation with Stu Adams as quarterback. Un- 
fortunately, a long pass was intercepted by Wes McKnight, 
who scored another six points for Brent. Again the con- 
vert was incomplete. Later in the game, Terry Hall scored 
his second touchdown of the game, bringing the score to 
25-0 in favour of Brent. In the third quarter, Ken Scott 
scored the last major of the game on a quarterback sneak. 
Blain Bowen converted, making the score at the end of the 
game 32-0 for Brent. 



At Lakefield. Lost 26-7. 

In their first game against Lakefield at the Grove 
the School was solidly beaten by a score of 26-7. 

Lakefield opened the scoring on their first play with 
quarterback Rainy completing a long forward. The convert 
was good. The Maroon and Black came very close to going 
all the way on the resulting kick-off when Embury bull- 
dozed through a stream of tacklers only to be knocked out 
of bounds on the Lakefield thirty. Near the end of the 
half. Rainy once again passed for a major. The conversion 
made the score 14-0. 

In the second half T.C.S. retaliated quickly when Wood 
pulled in a long pass thrown by Hyland. Embury converted. 
Throughout the rest of the game the play seemed to see- 
saw back and forth until Lakefield once again cut loose 


for two quick consecutive touchdowns on a series of plunges. 
Both convert attempts were blocked and the final score 
was 26-7. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Port Hope, October 24. Won 19-14. 

In their return match, Trinity won a wide open game 
against Upper Canada College. Although U.C.C. kicked off, 
Trinity gained possession of the ball early in the first quar- 
ter. After a 30-yard gain by John Embury on an end run, 
Jim Hyland soon scored a major for T.C.S. The convert 
attempt by Embury was no good. U.C.C. quickly retaliated, 
however, and using a good passing attack, got down to our 
25-yard line, where a third-down kick gained them a single 
point. The score at half-time was 6-1 in favour of Trinity. 

In the second half, a long completed pass to Barbour 
put the ball on U.C.C. 's 15-yard line. Hyland again went 
over for a touchdown, which was again unconverted. U.C.C. 
rallied, and after receiving the ball, battered their way 
through the Trinity defence for a touchdown by Baldwin. 
Silman kicked the extra point. A few minutes later, U.C.C. 
regained possession of the ball, and using their passing at- 
tack, allowed Baldwin to score again. The convert attempt 
went wide, but U.C.C. was now leading 14-12. Late in the 
fourth quarter. Trinity came back with a drive down to the 
U.C.C. 4-yard line, where Ross Adair charged over the goal 
line, putting Trinity back into the lead. Wood kicked the 
convert. With one minute to play, U.C.C. fumbled a third 
down kick on their own 28-yard line, but Trinity failed to 
take advantage before the flag fell, signalling the end of 
the game. 


BRENT WON 12-0. 

This house game was indeed one packed with action. 
In the first quarter, Turnbull recovered the ball for Brent 



and carried it to the Bethune one-yard line. Brent scored 
a touchdown when Wigle carried the ball over. The convert 
attempt failed, making the score 6-0 for Brent. In the 
second quarter, Wigle made a daring move by running on 
a third down while in kick formation. He did not score, 

In the third quarter, Bethune retaliated, but failed to 
score nevertheless. During the fourth quarter, both teams 
were struggling hard for a touchdown. Finally, Red Em- 
bury scored a major for Brent, giving Brent a 12-0 lead. 
The convert attempt proved unsuccessful. As the game 
drew to a close. Brent emerged victorious, the final score 
being 12-0 in favour of Brent.

"In like a lamb, out like a lion" probably best describes 
Littleside's season. Due mostly to inexperience the team 
was trounced 45 to in the first game. However, due to 
the T.C.S. fighting spirit and plenty of drive, the team won 
its last five games. In a hard fought return game with 
U.C.C, Littleside edged out a 3-1 victory! The team was 
sparked by Connell and Barbour on the line, Hodgetts as 
quarterback and Wigle ii as a brilliant kicker and catcher. 
Mr. Landry, again the coach, did a magnificent job with his 
"potent" squad aided by Captain John Braden and Peter 


At Port Hope, October 20. Won 14-6. 

S.A.C. got off to a fast start when they scored the first 
major of the game on an end run by Van Woolnough. The 
convert attempt failed, and the Saints were then leading 
6-0. After this quick start, things cooled down a bit, until 
just before the end of the first quarter, when Trinity made 
a strong bid for a touchdown. However, it was stopped by 
the S.A.C. line. 

The second quarter showed some fine running by Bar- 
bour and Braden, as they continually battered their way 
through the S.A.C. line. Because of two very good kicks 
by Hodgetts, Littleside managed to get two singles. The 
Saints showed strongly, once getting within range of our 
goal-line. Fortunately for us, they failed to score. Thus, 
at half-time, the score was 6-2 in favour of S.A.C. 

In the third quarter, Littleside pressed strongly again, 
this time with success. On an end run, Wurtele scored a 
touchdown, aided by some excellent blocking. 

In the final quarter, S.A.C. showed strong determination, 
but were stopped by an equally determined Trinity team. 
On the last play of the game, the S.A.C. quarterback at- 
tempted a pass play. Hancock for T.C.S. intercepted the 


pass and ran a short distance for a touchdown, thus clinch- 
ing the game. The convert attempt failed, but the final 
score put the Littleside team ahead 14-6. 

LITTLESroE vs. U.C.C. 

At Port Hope, October 24. Won 3-1. 

In their second game against U.C.C, an inspired 
Littleside defeated the visitors 3-1, in a game comprised 
only of singles. In the first quarter, Wigle opened the scoring 
for Trinity with a 35-yard single. In the second quarter, 
after a few exchanges of the ball, U.C.C. drove deep into 
T.C.S. territory. They were stopped, but not before Dratney 
kicked a single to tie the score. 

In the third and fourth quarters, Wigle repeated his 
previous performance with a single in each. In each quarter, 
U.C.C. made deep drives into Trinity territory, but every 
time failed to score. 

At Appleby. Won 31-12 

The third game of the Littleside season commenced 
with Appleby kicking off to T.C.S. After several drives 
into Appleby territory, Hodgetts passed to Wigle who ran 
for the first T.C.S. tally. The convert was wide. A few 
moments later Wigle again scored a major on an end run. 
This touchdown was also unconverted. Appleby came back 
with a pass play that brought them within scoring distance 
and Scarlet ran for the touchdown. The convert was short. 
In the second half the combination of Hodgetts and Wigle 
clicked again. Hodgetts again throwing, and Wigle running 
60 yards for the T.D. On the next T.C.S. drive, Hancock 
slipped through the Appleby defences to make the score 
24-6. The single point try was good. The final T.C.S. score 
was on a line plunge by Barbour. A convert attempt failed. 
The never-say-die Appleby team came back, with Black- 
well making the score. 




BRENT WON 58-0. 

In the Littleside house game played on Wednesday, 
November 7, a stronger Brent House team dominated the 
play for most of the game, although Bethune fought valiant- 
ly to regain her feet. The Brent scoring was led by Doug 
Wigle, scoring four major; John Braden, three; and Han- 
cock, two. The game ended with a touchdown pass by Hod- 
getts to Wigle. The convert attempt was unsuccessful. The 
final score was 58-0 for Brent House.

The Whizzers 

The Whizzers started the season again this year with Mr. 
White as their coach and George McCullagh, captain. The 
team was considerably weakened from last year, as a result 
of Bigside nabbing three players. However, after robbing 
the Penguins of two excellent players, we were consider- 
ably reinforced. Pete Davis, one man secured from the 
Penguins, was an exceptional yard-gainer in the halfback 
position. Tom Turnbull, the other player taken from the 


Penguins, was of great assistance when it came to tackling. 
Along with him in the same field, Peter Allen, Hugh Gor- 
don, and Peter Bradshaw, our assistant captain, deserve 
mentioning. Hugh Gordon and Chris Wilcox did a fine job 
on short and long pass receiving. During the regular 
schedule we defeated the Penguins almost every time, but 
only managed to beat the Groundhogs once. In the play- 
offs, after defeating the Penguins, we managed to secure 
the championship by defeating the first place Groundhogs, 
using a defensive strategy. We missed the help of back- 
fielder Mike Thompson who was injured in the previous 
game, but were grateful to Bart Tisdale for his inspiring 
help. All in all, the league games are meant to be more 
fim than serious, and I think most of the fellows who played 
in them will agree that they were. 


A newcomer made its appearance in the Middleside 
League this year imder the enthusiastic guidance of Mr. 
Perry. With Tony Minard as captain, the Penguins waddled 
through the season with surprising agility in view of 
obvious lack of manpower. 

As the season got underway, the team looked almost 
good enough to win the championship. However, their 
strength was slightly undermined by a number of damaging 
trades, and from then on, the cause was a losing one. 

The line, led by a "petit" individual from "down south," 
occasionally "elevated" the hopes of the coach, but never 
quite enough. Once in a while the watchful onlooker might 
catch a glimpse of a flash of red in the distance. More 
careful observation would reveal a tiny carrot-topped figure 
streaking towards the goal-line with arms outstretched, 
apparently awaiting the pass of the century. Unfortunately, 
as often as not there would be a heap of players, mostly 
opposition, in the vicinity of the Penguin backfielder with 
the ball . . . Well now, I wonder? 


In spite of the lack of victories, there was always 
plenty of spirit present during the games and consequently 
everyone had a very enjoyable season. 

The Groundhogs 

Coached by Mr. Gordon, nobly abetted by Mr. Brown, 
the Groundhogs, under captain Monty Black, had a very 
good season. We won all but one game and some by a 
fairly wide margin. Our biggest job was to get Shaky and 
Sitwell out on time, but when we did, and could field a 
complete team, we really began to roll. 

George McLaren gained many yards around the ends, 
and Howdy and Weeper gathered in a few passes. Gruff 
and Dirty Dave, running interference, cleared gaping holes 
for the backfield to go through. But alas! In the final, 
when the Whizzers had developed their full power, the 
Groundhogs met their match and lost valiantly. 



A bolt of lightning, a crack of thunder, the roar of 
trumpets, the clash of cymbals, and on to the field came 
the Mighty Monsters of 1956, captained by R. M. L. Towle. 

This year was the first edition of the Massey Monsters, 
and as it turned out, it was a most successful one. From 
the line to the backs this team was packed with energy 
and spirit, along with Mr. Massey's very capable coaching. 
As the games went by the Monsters racked up an unsur- 
passable string of victories. 

At the end of the season the standing showed these 
same Monsters leading the league with eleven points. The 
Plimderers were a close second with nine, followed by the 
Demons. The Demons and Plunderers played off, and as 
the Plunderers won, they had to play the Monsters in the 
final for the championship. Mr. Massey's team was really 
geared up for this one, and they went on the field with a 


determined spirit. When the game was over, again the 
Monsters were victorious. They had finally proved to every- 
body that they were the team that deserved the honours. 
Much credit is due to the other teams, however, for 
making it such a hard-fought league. 


The Demons were again expertly coached by Mr. Dale 
with Fred Hassel and Bob Osier as captains. The season 
started off well for the Demons for we tied and won our 
first two games. This good play was due to the fast running 
of Hart, Osier, Thomson and the good line work of Shorto, 
Wainwright and many others. As the season went on, the 
team slackened and at the end the Demons ended up in the 
cellar with four points. When the finals came, however, 
we were a new team and ready to go. Although we lost 
the final by a close score, we feel that it was a good season 
for all. 


Under the guidance of a spirited coach whose experience 
was reinforced by hard work and perseverance, the 
Plunderers of 1956 developed very well, captained by Michael 
Denny s. After the first game (which we lost 46-0) things 
looked bad, but after a 6-0 defeat in our second game, 
our losses were over. From then on we won or tied every 
game. Led by the hard-charging Rusty Thompson and 
John Bilton's tricky running we really pounded out the 
yardage. In the semi-final playoffs we defeated Mr. Dale's 
Demons 14-6. However, in the final game we were defeated 
18-6 by Mr. Masssey's Monsters. In the second half we out- 
scored them 6-0, and three times in succession held them 
inside our thirty-five yard line. While we could not score, the 
last half of our final game was our "most glorious hour".

Off the: 


This epic's the tale of a team 

Whose season was surely a dream, 

It was always fair weather 

When they played together 

So excuse us for spouting some steam! 

Co-captain was Rusty Dunbar I 

Whose head could be seen from afar, 

The colour was scarlet ^ 

The foes saw the varlet j 

Go past like a bright shooting star. 

Our other "co-cap" Terry Hall 

Had magnetic hands on the ball, 

In kicking and catching 

There's no use in matching 

Your best 

For there isn't one like him at all. 

Our centre linebacker, McNairn, 

Was surely a prize bonny bairn 

For Colin the scholar 

Made everyone holler 

With jokes that sure needed an air'in! 


Our top tackle trimmer is Tim 
When he's on, opponents look grim, 
With a rock and a roll 
He careens through the hole . . . 
She-boom! The lights have gone dim! 

The silent but solid Al Shier 

Threw passes in rain, sun, or mire. 

He also would run 

Like a shell from a gun 

And he made opposition expire! 

Tony's start was to say the least green, 

And the odd mistake was to be seen, 

But nobody hollered 

We all simply follerd . . . 

And our quarter soon proved a champeen! 

Doug Higgins went after their quarter . . . 

You soon heard them calling for worter . . . 

But alas was too late 

So we just bowed to fate 

And brought on a blinkin' big blotter. 

Ken's block was a bit of a stunner 

He found the fight funner and funner. 

He was off on the warpath 

Intent on a bloodbath 

To stop him you should be a gunner. 

Wee Wally was truly a tank. 

And chaps, to be perfectly frank, 

If you get in his way 

Then goodnight for today, 

And thank God for the REd Cross Blood Bank! 


And now we'll be bow'in to Blaine, 

Who left his opponents in pain, 

For as they approached 

He did as was coached 

And they went as fast as they came! 

Pete, Stu, Frank, our tertiary three, 
No glory seemed likely to see 
Pass defence they corrected 
Each weakness corrected 
And completely contained UCC. 

Garth built up his beautiful body, 

To make his opponents look shoddy 

That old fuddy duddy 

Made UCC muddy . . . 

He forgot he had once been their buddy! 

Our converter came from the east 

And the team didn't mind in the least. 

He soon had Dick, Wes an' 

Dave Cape confessin' 

That teaming with him was a feast. 

John, Ian, Brit, Pete, Mark and FVed, 
To say the least that can be said, 
No less than the others 
Played ball like true brothers 
And were ready to go until dead. 

We wish we had time to wTite more, 

It will have to be left to school lore. 

Was there ever a team. 

Stayed so on the beam 

As the fifty-six Tom Bomb's galore.

We have been blessed with a wonderful Fall Term up 
to the time of writing. 

All our football and soccer games were played imder 
almost ideal conditions and we were also fortunate enough 
to get through the season without any injuries. 

Our Hallowe'en party followed its traditional pattern 
of a costume parade with musical chairs and guessing 
games after it. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. 

Plans are well in hand for our Christmas entertain- 
ment which is being produced and directed by Mr. Bums 
and Mr. Dennys. 

We welcome Mrs. D. S. Christie to the position of Nurse- 
Matron and hope she will enjoy her time with us. 

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all 
members of Boulden House. 


This ship canal is the largest in the world. It connects 
the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea, and the cities of 
Port Said and Suez. This canal was opened in 1869 and 
cost £20,000,000. 

The Suez Canal was first thought of by the early 
Egyptians. Little parts of the canal were started before 
the birth of Christ. In 1798, a French engineer, named 
Ferdinand de Lesseps, turned his attention to the enterprise. 
For four years he worked and in 1858, a company was 
organized which had a capital of $40,000,000. 

Work began in 1859. For the next six years the digging 
was done by shovels, but after that they used machinery. 
The canal is 104 miles long and includes twenty-one miles 
of small lakes. They did not cut through much rock and 
did not need locks. 

The canal was twenty-six feet deep and 72 feet wide 
at the bottom. Two ships could pass at certain points but 
one had to tie up while the other passed. The canal has

On a hill bordering the St. Lawrence River near Quebec 
City, used to sit a rusty old cannon. It was brought by 
the French in the Sixteenth century to keep away the hostile 
Indians. The French used it again in the Seven Year's War 
against Wolfe and his forces but to no avail. 

In 1920, the government moved it to a public park 
along the banks of the Richelieu River. Now it is marked 
as a very historical spot where Champlain held off the 
Iroquois. — G- ^- Henrich, Form UAI. 



After being broken to saddle and bridle, a race horse 
is brought to the track for preliminary training in the 
spring. Early morning jogs are the first step in develop- 
ing the horse's muscles, the gait is gradually speeded up 
until it is time to give him a "full out two furlongs." This 
is where he really has to show his capabilities. If he proves 
perfect, he is worked hard until the day comes when the 
horse is entered in his first race, a two furlong sprint for 
two-year-olds. This is usually a fast race because the horses 
are in peak condition. 

After many races of this type the owner has high 
hopes for the day he will enter his horse in a six furlong 
event. Much hard work goes into this greater distance and 
only when the horse is ready for it is he entered. Perhaps 
he wins or runs like a fish. If he wins, the day can be looked 
forward to when the horse runs his first stake race. This 
involves big money. For a long race like this he must be 
long winded; to accomplish this it means jogging the horse 
for at least two to four miles each day. After mastering 
these feats, he could be a contender in any race.

Every day, long before you have even stirred in your 
bed, Robin is up searching for his breakfast. He flies around, 
lazily cruising, while his eyes dart about; soon he spots a 
burrowing worm and before it is aware, he flashes down 
out of the blue above and pounces on it. The worm begins 
to twist and turn and pull in an effort to free itself. Oh ! it's 
loose; quickly the worm tries to take advantage of its 
break, but the Robin is determined not to lose its prey and 
again he snatches the worm up and, with one last vic-

From where I was standing, the small, green valley 
appeared to be a miniature playground. On the left side 
were gently sloping hills coloured by the multiple tinted 
leaves which were drowsily drifting to the half -frozen 
ground; to the right was a rugged steep cliff with a tiny 
waterfall running down among the rocks. At the far end 
was a tall, snow-capped mountain with rocks jutting out 
here and there, and at the foot of the mountain was a 
trapper's small log cabin with skins of animals stretched 
on frames hanging from the wall. Behind the house was 
an old bam with a broken-down sleigh in the door. 

I was on my way there so I started down the steep 
slope in order to get to the cabin before nightfall.

The puck, 

The check, 

The scramble, 

The shot. 

The goal, 
The player, 
The crowd, 
The skates, 
The grind, 

The thrill! — J- '^- Band, Form IIAI. 


Horses belong to the order of hoofed beasts, as do 
cattle, sheep and deer. 

In prehistoric times, wild horses roamed all over Europe 
and Asia. These were just slightly smaller than the wolf 
and were four toed. Since then the middle toe of the horse 
has grown very much and is now considered as the foot 
or hoof. 

The average horse is about fourteen and one-half hands 
high, which in feet and inches is about six feet and eight 

Today the only real wild horses are living in Mongolia. 
These are small, dun-coloured animals with a single dark 
stripe along the back. The so-called wild horses of America 
are just descendants of imported domestic horses which 
have run wild. 

Horses were not known at all in America until the 
Europeans came in the sixteenth centm-y. They have multi- 
plied greatly and are now some of the most popular and 
common animals in North America.

In Arabia there are camels which would seem very 
rare to us. They are rare because we live in a different 
part of the world where camels are not seen. 

The Arabian camel has only one hump, though there 
are other ones which have two humps. Camels are very 
useful to carry people and spices. They also can go for a 
long distance without water. Animals which can travel 
without water like camels are most useful, for deserts are 
long and dusty and have only a few water springs. 

Camels are used very much in deserts because of their 
long feet. Donkeys or horses would sink in the sand be- 
cause they have shorter feet. Camels do not sink in the 
sand because they have long feet. Camels are very stubborn 
animals. They can run very, very fast. 

Camels are very useful in barren countries but here 
we would only find them in the zoo.

It is amazing how rivers curve and turn, moving in all 
directions, usually going towards a bigger body of water. 
They go through underground routes, under roots and moss. 
Some rivers are quite large and their inhabitants are many 
large and small creatures. It is so wonderful to see water- 
falls with the water thundering and churning around. 

We usually don't realize the great uses of our rivers. 
For canals for ships and for power, our big rivers are used; 
drainage of the earth's surface is important too. 

Rivers help everyone all over the world.

Slowly the sun rose and threw its rays through a small 
niche in the tree. The beams carried on past the branch 
and lit the small subject below. 


At this time, the blades of grass began their upward 
heaving. Since the frost had been heavy the night before, 
this process was slow and laborious. The wind began to 
freshen now, speeding the progress of upheaving of glasses. 

At the same time, the wind brought with it a small 
berry, gently dropping it into our inch of territory. There 
it sat placidly on a mound of hardened mud like a snake 
basking in the sun. 

All at once a shadow fell upon the square inch, block- 
ing the sun's rays. Then the leaf settled down serenely 
upon the blades of grass, covering the inch from prying 
human eyes. 

— J. F. G. Scrivin, Form IIAI. 


Flying down the ice: — 

With the speed of light, 

The blades flash. 
The wood comes back. 
Then rushes forward 

As the black disc whirls 

Through the air, — 
And into the mesh beyond.

Captain of Rugby J. A. Burton 

Vice-Captain J. M. Band 

Judging from the keenness and good spirit shown in 
our practices, everybody enjoyed the season and, in fact, 
seemed to be sorry when it ended. This surely is the true 
measure of a successful season — games of any kind are 
meant to be enjoyed. 

Like any other team, we played better football in some 
games than in others — our main mistakes came more from 


lack of experience rather than from any lack of endeavour. 
We undoubtedly played our best football in the game we 
lost by the largest score! 


First Team Colours have been awarded to the follow- 
ing: J. A. Burton (Capt), J. M. Band (Vice-Capt.), D. H. 
Brainerd, D. W. Cobbett, D. N. Hodgetts, C. J. Humble, 
J. C. Ketchum, N. F. J. Ketchum, J. J. Kime, T E. Leather, 
B. R. B. Magee, C. J. Tottenham, J. L. Vaughan, J. R. 


G. M. Barber, G. L. Booth, E. W. Colby, D. M. Gray- 
don, I. M. McAvity. 


The first game of the season saw Lakefield at T.C.S. 
on October 10. The Lakefield squad was obviously short 
of training due to a late start at rugby and the result pro- 
duced a very one-sided match with Boulden House the 
heavy winners by a score of 54-0. 

On October 13, Upper Canada Prep entertained Boulden 
House. The Boulden House team was heavier and slightly 
older than the Prep team and the result was never in doubt 
after half-time. The Upper Canada team is to be con- 
gratulated on the brand of football shown by them under 
those handicaps. Final score, T.C.S. 25; U.C.C. 6. 

The game against St. Andrew's at T.C.S. on October 20 
produced a 16-0 victory for the Saints. The Boulden House 
team did not play their best football in this game, having 
got off to a shaky start due to some rather erratic snap- 
ping. St. Andrew's deserved their win but possibly not by 
so large a margin. 

As is frequently the case in our schedule, the Ridley 
game produced the best football of the season in spite of 
a 25-6 victory for Ridley. 


Ridley possibly had a slight edge in weight and played 
a good brand of football. Some very unfortunate fumbles 
near the Ridley goal line in the first half kept us out of 
the scoring while the opposition rolled up 19 points. In the 
second half, the Boulden House team played some very solid 
football, holding Ridley to one unconverted touchdown and 
scoring one themselves in the dying minutes of the game. 

The final game of the season played at Lakefield on 
October 22 saw a 30-13 victory for Boulden House. The 
Lakefield team showed a great deal of improvement over 
the first game and some good football was produced by 
both teams. 

House Glame 

A very strong Orchard House team under the captaincy 
of J. M. Band ground out a 19-0 victory over Rigby House 
in a very hard-hitting game. 


Co-Captains of Soccer F. W. Naylor, D. C. Rubbra 

This year's Soccer squad enjoyed one of their most 

successful seasons in several years. A good brand of soccer 

was played in all their matches — all of which were very 

hard fought

The following is a progress report of the T.C.S. Fund 
up to the end of November. Purpose of this report is to 
illustrate what has been collected and what remains to be 

Immediate Objective $1,000,000.00 by Dec. 31, 1958 

Amount Pledged 436,794.92 Nov. 30, 1956. 

Balance to be given $ 563,205.08 

Long Term Objective $ 525,000.00 by June 1, 1965 

Amount Pledged 277,610.00 1959 - -1965. 

Balance to be given $ 247,390.00 

Total amount pledged $ 714,404.92 

The 100th Anniversary endowment total is $2,625,- 
000.00. This amount will be raised from the two objectives 
listed above and supplemented by an Annual Giving Cam- 
paign which it is hoped, will amount to $44,000.00 yearly 
by 1965. This amount capitalized at 4% will complete the 
total objective. 

The original immediate objective was $500,000.00 but, 
due to the magnificent response at the start of the cam- 
paign, this figure was increased to $1,000,000.00. From what 
has been collected so far and the potential not yet canvassed, 
there is every indication that the campaign will be success- 
ful in its efforts. 


It is of interest to note that as of November 30, 1956, 
five hundred and eighty gifts have been received. Of this 
number no less than one hundred and thirty-three have come 
from individuals other than Old Boys, In other words, of 
a potential of approximately twenty-five hundred Old Boys, 
only four hundred an forty-seven have donated. There still 
remains much work to be done by those taking an active 
part in the campaign. Plans are now under way to revital- 
ize the drive early in the New Year. 


The Old Boys' Dinner in Toronto on November 22 was 
a great success; there were some two hundred and thirty 
in the Ballroom of the Royal York and the buzz of con- 
versation showed clearly that all were meeting old friends. 

The Headmaster mentioned the fact that N. M. Sea- 
gram ('47-'52) was the third Norman Seagram to be Presi- 
dent of the Toronto Branch, his Grandfather and Father 
having preceded him. So many Old Boys congratulated him 
on the way he ran the gathering. There were nine Seagrams 
present — Norman, Senior, his sons. Bill, Norman and David, 
Bill's sons. Bill and Richard, Norman's sons, Norman and 
John, and Charlie Seagram from Barrie. Other families 
extremely well represented were the Strathys, G.B., his 
sons, Jim and Colin, Jim's sons, Bob and John; the Osiers, 
Stu and Pat; Britton, John, Campbell, and Britton's son, 
Tony; the Vernons, Tim and his sons, Pat, Hugh and John; 
the dePenciers, Joe and his sons, John and Mike.

From Jim Vipond's ('33-'35) column in "The Globe and 
Mail" of Monday, October 29, 1956: "And sitting happily 
at the head table looking forward to 1958 when he will cele- 
brate 70 years association with Canadian football, was 
Seppi DuMoulin ('88-'96), the Patriarich of the Pigskin. 
Seppi, the only man to ever hold the presidency of Canada's 
three senior football leagues, the Big Four, the Western 
Conference and the Ontario Rugby Football Union, is still 
as keenly interested in the game today as when he played 
for Trinity College School. And Seppi is not one to yearn 


for the good old days. He likes the game of football as it 
is played today, thinks that perhaps it is more interesting 
and exciting than the game he played." 

In 1909 the Hamilton Tigers coached by Seppi DuMoulin 
played Varsity coached by H. C. Griffith for the Dominion 
Championship. Varsity won by a small margin. It was the 
first Dominion Championship Football game.

Since 1933 exactly one hundred boys have come to 
T.C.S. from Winnipeg and the West, divided as follows: 

Vancouver & B.C 35 

Calgary & Alberta 25 

Edmonton 20 

Saskatchewan 6 

Winnipeg & Manitoba 14 

There are thirteen boys in the School now from the 

Since the Founding of the School 92 years ago approx- 
imately five hundred boys have come from the West. 
Since 1933, 1,571 New Boys have entered T.C.S. 
In 1913 there were 43 boys from the West at T.C.S. 
out of a total enrolment of 140. The smallest number from 
the West since 1933 was five in 1933 out of a total of 130 
boys (Depression Days). There were only seven out of 
260 in 1955, so with that number doubled, the vivid Western 
air is beginning to permeate our corridors once again. 


(The Headmaster's and Old Boys' Secretary's trip to 
Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, 
October 9 - 18, 1956.) 

We had been told that we must go West: it did not 
take much persuasion for who would not like to take ten 
days out of the routine of School life to meet old friends 
far flung toward the setting sun, many of whom we had 
not seen for twenty to forty years. But October was a busy 
month at School and September was too soon for most Old 
Boys to organize meetings. We had to postpone at two 


weeks' notice the original trip scheduled for September and 
though the new date was best for four cities, it made little 
difference in one, and for several reasons it was upsetting 
to some arrangements made by Vancouver Old Boys. We 
do apologize most deeply again for the inconvenience which 
we caused. 

The West will always be exciting to the writer: his 
first trip there was on a harvester's excursion in 1915 as 
a boy of fifteen — an unforgettable experience. Foreigners 
galore, wooden seats, driving teams to load sheaves in the 
limitless fields, galloping to the threshing machine and off 
for another load, sleeping in a 'caboose' 12' x 6' x 6', double 
bunks, eight smelly men, on the job 19 hours a day and 
the pay five dollars a day, a good wage for those days. In 
the middle thirties he went again to see Old Boys, this time 
in style by C.P.R. and never will he forget the unbounded 
hospitality and enthusiasm he met everywhere. The trip 
itself was thrilling, the scenery was superb; despite the 
depression Vancouver obviously had the most amazing 
future of the younger cities and the most breathtaking site. 
In the morning, one of the finest lads ever to attend T.C.S., 
who later fell in Italy, took the writer around the new Uni- 
versity site, with its gorgeous views, then to the higher 
ground just beginning to be settled (now thickly populated) , 
across the extraordinary Lions' Gate bridge to the Capillano 
Golf Course — he told me he played golf in the morning on 
his day off and he skied in the afternoon and all half an 
hour from home. Here were ships from all parts of the world 
tied up right in the centre of the city, and always the 
mountains towering majestically on the horizon. 

Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria had thrilled him then, the 
first two somewhat like throbbing outpost cities, the last 
not like any Canadian city he had seen, a quiet, English 
Naval town, green grass in April twenty-four hours from 
snow and ice in Edmonton and Calgary. Winnipeg was more 
like an Eastern city, he thought, large, soundly established, 
and growing old in years. 


In 1945 he went again and saw changes; in 1948 he 
went to Victoria for an educational conference and had Old 
Boys' meetings at Senator Barnard's house in Victoria, at 
the Shaughnessy Golf Club, Vancouver, and in Winnipeg. 
The thrill was the flight across the country, only one 
passenger from Winnipeg to Toronto, dropping down at 
emergency airfields on the north shore of Lake Superior 
and flying over Muskoka to Malton. He was allowed to sit 
with the pilot and take over, listening to the beam. 

How different in eight years! A non-stop Super Con- 
stellation flight from Malton to Calgary in seven hours and 
every seat taken. We took eight separate flights on this 
tour and we were not a minute late at any one of the six 
cities we visited. Orchids to the T.C.A. ! And we tried every 
plane in service, Conny's, Viscounts, North Stars, (Tourist), 
and D.C. 3's — they were all excellent. What a lifelong im- 
pression it is flying over Lake Superior and seeing all the 
grain boats in line with their little white ribbons at bow 
and stern, miraculous colours and shapes of the clouds 
especially during sunset, the flares of the oil wells, the 
panorama of the Rockies which beggars description, and the 
superb setting of Vancouver and Victoria. 

But now to those important details, the boys we met. 
The reason for the trip was threefold (1) to tell the Old 
Boys T.C.S. was still functioning well and wanted more 
boys from the West, (2) to get more help from the Old 
Boys in spreading the gospel of the School through the 
means of active associations, and (3) to bring word about 
the T.C.S. Fund and the new Scholarships and Bursaries 
which can look after travelling expenses and in some cases 
much more than that. Then the new "External Affairs 
Minister," Paul McFarlane, had an opportunity to meet 
many Old Boys throughout the West with whom he will 
be dealing as Secretary of the O.B.A. The whole trip was 
delightful, with one reservation: everywhere we went we 
wanted to stay a few days longer and, of course, the writer 
would like to settle down for life on a ranch in the Calgary 


At every Airport Old Boys were waiting to meet us, 
something we never dreamed of for the hour of arrival was 
often most inconvenient — 12 midnight, 5 p.m. with all the 
traffic. It seemed unbelievable when the stewardess drew 
my attention to the sign "Fasten Seat Belts" — how could 
we be at Calgary so soon! But there we were and what a 
striking new Airport building — surely one of the most at- 
tractive anywhere. It was after midnight Calgary time but 
there v/ere Dick Carson, Fred Scott and Bill Toole waiting 
for us. They whisked us off to the Palliser and then on to 
Dick's home where his Father and Mother entertained us 
for two hours. 

Calgary has grown faster than any other city in Canada 
and there was evidence of it everywhere: (an Old Boy re- 
marked that it was a bit frightening to realize that so many 
workers were in the building trades.) 

The foothills in the distance and the exciting Calgary 
air rejuvenated us the next morning: we wanted to take 
part in a Stampede! 

The programme had been drawn up by Dick Carson 
and his committee: we had a luncheon with parents, a visit 
to Strathcona School where many T.C.S. boys started their 
schooling, a large Tea Party for Old Boys and Parents 
and Friends at the hotel, and a sumptuous dinner in the 
evening. Neil Harvie came in from his ranch, the Gourlays, 
Jock and Alistair from their ranch, and Jim Cartwright was 
planning to come from his but buyers appeared and he 
could not get away. Next day the Calgary Herald made a 
tape recording of an interview and we had lunch with Mr. 
and Mrs. Bobby Heard at the lovely Golf Club, meeting 
more T.C.S. people; Neil Harvie gave up the whole after- 
noon to motor us fifty miles and more around Calgary, see- 
ing the boundaries of his ranch, the place where the Marquis 
of Lome wrote "Unto the Hills around do I lift up my 
longing eyes" — and one can easily understand why the 
Marquis was so inspired, a large sulphur factory miles from 
anywhere and using natural gas as the raw material, and 


now and then oil prospectors using the sound wave method. 
It was all intensely interesting and Neil's ranch, some ten 
thousand acres of wide fields rolling down to the Bow River, 
was unforgettable. Dick Carson came out to dinner and 
very kindly motored us back to the airport. It was hard to 
tear ourselves away. The Old Boys we saw in Calgary 
were Arthur Mewburn, our Calgary Governor who had a 
heavy cold but who had done much to make the visit a suc- 
cess, Dick Carson, acting President, Neil Harvie, Secretary, 
Fred Scott (new Secretary), Bill Toole (new President), 
Al and Jock Gourlay, Roy Jennings, Sandy McPherson, 
Malcolm Mackenzie (building a super motel), Bruce Mac- 
donald (formerly of Winnipeg), Charles van Straubenzie. 
A number were at Universities and we saw them in Van- 
couver and Edmonton. 

We seemed to be over the Rockies and in Vancouver 
before we had settled down in our seats. There Ross Wil- 
son (Governor) met us and Dick James appeared, coming 
straight from work at the Hudson's Bay Company. Ross 
motored us miles to the city and the hotel and gave us the 
order of proceedings. He had gone to untold pains and 
expense to make our visit a real success. In the hotel Ted 
Parker appeared — out on business and expecting his second 
child at any time. The Old Boys had a late afternoon gather- 
ing at the Terminal City Club, Pat Burns being in charge. 
There was a very good attendance, a number of Old Boys 
coming six miles from the University despite the awkward 
hour. Among others were Pat Burns, David Lawson, Tony 
Walkem, Ross Wilson, Don Macdonald (new President), 
John Usborne, Sandy Pearson, Phipp Rogers, Desmond 
Fitzgerald (U.B.C.), David Smith (U.B.C.), Reg Bethune, 
Guy Montizambert, Dr. John Becher, Dick James, Fenn 
Douglas, Theo DuMoulin (Len was ill), Don Fullerton, 
O. E. S. Gardiner, Hudson Goodbody, John Gordon (U.B.C.), 
Tad James, Ken Manning, Cam Harstone, Wray Jones, 
Budge Jukes, Michael King, George Lane, Warren Malins, 
Mait McCarthy, Hugh Paterson, Blair Paterson, Dr. Reg 


Tanner, Bill Thomas (U.B.C.) , Tom Wade, Tony Wells, Dick 
Wright (Montreal), Harrison Moore, Harry Pearce, Bob 
Arnold (U.B.C). It was indeed good of senior Old Boys 
like Mr. Reg Bethune and Mr. Guy Montizambert to come 
a long distance to a late afternoon gathering. That evening 
Dr. Joe Thomas entertained us to dinner downtown and we 
spent the evening at his house with Mrs. Thomas, Ross Wil- 
son, Bill Thomas and our host. Robert Orchard met us at 
the hotel and Dudley Dawson was at the airport on his 
way back to Montreal. The next day the President of U.B.C. 
entertained the writer to lunch and showed him all the 
building developments which have taken place there in a 
few years. Dr. Mackenzie's house is surely in the most 
perfect setting imaginable and indeed the thousand acres 
which the Province gave for a University site is ideally 
situated. U.B.C, like all colleges, is bursting at the seams 
and has more resident students in proportion to numbers 
than any other Canadian College. Dr. Geoff Andrews is 
assistant to the President — he was a former master at U.CC 
Don Macdonald took us on a tour of the Yacht Club and part 
of the new housing development, a reporter interviewed 
the writer, there were many telephone conversations, and 
the Headmaster was invited to attend the annual dinner of 
the B.C. Private Schools' Association and bring greetings 
from the East. It was a most enjoyable gathering. Ross 
Wilson then took us to the renowned Empire Stadium to 
see the Vancouver Lions play the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 
in the rain — a one sided defeat for Vancouver. On Sunday, 
we attended the Cathedral and had more informal gather- 
ings before leaving for Victoria. 

There Hugh Henderson met us and took us to tea at 
his lovely country place. Then into the city and a full pro- 
gramme on Monday. Hugh invited us to his law office 
where we discussed Old Boys' matters followed by a lun- 
cheon he had arranged at the Union Club with John Wal- 
lace, the Officers Commanding Royal Roads and Venture, 
and Mr. Peter Kaye, Head of Shawnigan Lake School. 


Victoria was balmy, with a slight drizzle, and the people 
seemed to live at a slower pace and much more sensibly. 
The O.C. of Royal Roads said Kit Anstis was the Senior 
Cadet this term and doing very well. Then to Hugh's house 
again which he and his wife had thrown open for a tea 
party in our honour. Among the Old Boys who came were 
Walker Taylor, David McKeand, Carew Martin, Capt. Phil 
Haddon, Massey Cox, John Lines, Terry Melville (at Vic- 
toria College), Geoff Archbold (master at Shawnigan), 
John Wallace, Lt. Commander Don Joy, and there were other 
Naval officers. Heads of Schools, Parents of boys. That 
evening Captain and Mrs. Prentice had a dinner party for 
about twenty people: it was all most enjoyable. 

We caught the plane for Vancouver at 7 a.m. and the 
panorama of sea, inlets, islets, Vancouver Island, channels, 
mountains, fishing boats, and liners was striking to say the 

On to Edmonton where Bunny Aylen met us and 
motored us in to the city. He entertained us to lunch at 
the Edmonton Club and he and Gerry Pearson had organized 
an Old Boys' Dinner. In the afternoon there was another 
interview by a reporter, meetings and telephone talks with 
parents. The dinner at the Edmonton Club was the best 
we have ever had in Edmonton; a larger number of Old 
Boys and Parents turned up than we thought possible and 
the School film was very much appreciated. Mr. Aylen made 
a very appropriate speech, followed by the Head, and there 
was much talk about Old Days and various details of School 
life. Always at every city there were enquiries for Masters 
whom Old Boys remembered with gratitude and affection. 
One Old Boy said the Chemistry he had learned was all 
he needed for first year at Alberta and he was much better 
prepared than others in his class. The film made a real 
impression on all present and they stayed for the 1955 U.C.C. 
football film which Mr. Hall gave the School. Pat Burns 
(Calgary) was at the hotel but could not come to the dinner; 
he is at the University of Alberta. Bunny Aylen presided 


and with him at the Head Table were Colonel Pearson, Mr. 
MacCosham, Professor Grayson Smith, Paul McFarlanc and 
the Headmaster. Among the others were Gerry Pearson 
(new President), Harry Morris, Rod MacCosham, Group 
Capt. Don Galloway, David McDonald, Charles Brine, Bob 
McLaughlin, Tony van Straubenzee, Philip Stevens-Guille, 
Chris Yorath, Jim Thompson, Rod Montagu, Dr. Eric Elliott, 
Robert Paterson, Graham Thomson. 

Edmonton is another city which has changed out of all 
recognition in twenty years; enormous petro-chemical in- 
dustries loom up on the horizon, the city has grown all 
around the airport making it necessary to find another site, 
the subdivisions laid out for forty years in the suburbs 
with no buildings are now right in the city, and one senses 
a feeling of bustle and big development. In the Hotel the 
Imperial Oil Company has a fascinating model of the whole 
process of searching for oil, and how it is used when found, 
and at the airport planes leave for the remote northern out- 

On to Regina the next morning where Judge Gordon 
and Assistant Commissioner Nordy Kirk, R.C.M.P. were 
waiting to meet us. We rushed off to Judge Gordon's house 
where Mrs. Gordon had the most delicious luncheon of 
grain fed wild duck, with wild rice, numerous vegetables 
and delicacies, followed by pumpkin pies which melted in 
one's mouth. Don Gilley, Nordy Kirk and our host were 
the only Old Boys in town but Gordon Brown who farms 
several thousand acres sent a message to say how sorry 
he was that it was impossible for him to get away. Mr. 
Alan Embury, father of John, completed the most enjoy- 
able party. We had only an hour and forty minutes in 
Regina but every moment was so filled with pleasure it 
seemed much longer. 

Flying over the lakes and sloughs we saw thousands 
of duck and Judge Gordon said he could always get his bag 
by motoring a few miles into the prairies and digging a 


hide. (The name before ours in the Visitors' Book was 
Mrs. A. B. Hodgetts who called last summer.) 

Then to Winnipeg where Brock Smith met us. It 
seemed to me that ever since 1935 Brock Smith has gone 
to much trouble to do anything possible for the School. He 
was in Vancouver in 1935 with the 'Bay' and wrote a de- 
lightful story for the press about the Old Boys' Dinner: 
then he was in Edmonton and later in Winnipeg. He and 
Andy Stephens had done the staff work for an Old Boys' 
luncheon the next day, but hardly had we arrived at the 
hotel than Mr. Don Knight, father of David, came in and 
invited us to dinner and then to a gathering at his house. 
He and Mrs. Knight had invited about forty parents who 
might be interested in T.C.S. and the evening was a most 
thoroughly enjoyable one for us. We came away feeling 
that Winnipeg people simply could not have been more 
thoughtful and kind. The next morning parents met us at 
the hotel, Mr. Phipps Baker (Governor) had just arrived 
back from Vancouver and came down to see us, and we 
paid a visit to Mr. Dick Gordon, Head of St. John's-Ravens- 
court School. Stu Searle, a Governor of St. John's-Ravens- 
court, motored us out and he and Mr. Gordon showed us all 
over their striking new building. Then came the Old Boys' 
luncheon at the Hudson's Bay Company Store. Mr. Andy 
Stephens most generously entertained us all and Brock 
Smith was in the Chair. There were short speeches and 
it was agreed that a branch Association should be recon- 
stituted. In addition to Brock Smith and Andy Stephens 
there were Morris and Eric Patton, Jimmy Taylor, Heber 
Sharpe, Dick Bonnycastle, Bruce Miller (from Portage), 
Arthur Millward, Sidney Cox, Harold Turner, Douglas 
Hutchings; Tony Nanton and Stu Searle had been at the 
evening reception and could not make the dinner. Stephen 
Baker and John Arbuthnott were detained at the University, 
Stan Pepler's wife was ill, Jock Smith and Bill Mathers 
were out of town. It was most encouraging to find such 
enthusiasm in Winnipeg — from 1913 on for many years we 


met lean years there but before then we flourished and in 
the last few years T.C.S. seems to be regaining ground. 

And so we headed home to the East, still glowing from 
all the world-renowned Western enthusiasm and hospitality 
we had encountered everywhere.

Dr. "Bobby" Armour was a most faithful Old Boy of 
T.C.S. and graduate of Trinity College. For many, many 
years he made it a point to attend our Speech Day cere- 
monies and he always sent funds for his prize, the Armour 
Memorial. He was a son of E. D. Armour, Q.C., ('67-'68), a 
'jarrister, and a member of the Governing Body in the early 
years of this century. It was Mr. E. D. Armour who gave 
the Jubilee Exhibition for Mathematics to mark the fiftieth 
anniversary of the founding of the School in 1915. 

Dr. Armour spent only one year at T.C.S. and then 
entered Trinity College where he graduated in Arts in 1904. 
He then studied Medicine and took his degree in 1908. De- 
ciding to specialize in neurology, he took postgraduate 
courses in neurology and psychiatry in Berlin, London and 
New York. 

In 1915 he was appointed to No. 4 Canadian General 
Hospital overseas; in 1918 at the end of the war he was 
appointed consultant neurologist for the Western provinces 
but he returned to civilian practice the following year. For 
some thirty years he took a leading part in the training 
of medical students in neurology at the University of Tor- 
onto and in 1945 he became the head of the Neurological 
Service and Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. Armour 
had a deep interest in medico-legal work and was very 
often called upon to give evidence in Court in important 
legal cases. He believed that all professional men should 
have a sound training in the humanities and impressed on his 
students the need for a broad background of knowledge as 
well as technical skill. 

He will be sadly missed in many circles but his strong 
character, his deep principles and loyalties will never be 


PHILIP DuMOULIN (1884-1885) 

Two years ago S. S. DuMoulin and his brother, Philip, 
had lunch in the Hall and spent the afternoon at the School. 
The Headmaster spoke of the long and loyal support given 
to T.C.S. by the DuMoulin family and the many relations 
and connections of the Dumoulins who had been boys at 
the School. 

Now Philip DuMouhn has left us; he died in his sleep 
on November 10th in Kelowna, B.C., after a brief illness. 

He was born the year the T.C.S. moved to Port Hope, 
m 1868, son of the Bishop of Niagara. Entering T.C.S. in 
1884 he showed himself to be a good student and a keen 
athlete. Business called him and he joined the Bank of 
Montreal in Toronto in 1887. For forty-five years he served 
the bank and retired in Vancouver in 1932. In 1946 he 
moved to Kelowna. During his career as a banker he took 
a leading part in the communities where he was stationed, 
Ottawa, New Westminster, Victoria, Nelson, Kelowna, 
Kingston. He was Manager of the first branch opened in 
Kelowna and as that community had just been granted a 
Charter as a town and was expanding rapidly Mr. DuMoulin 
was called on to give direction and advice in many develop- 
ments. He helped to build St. Michael and All Angels 
Church, to organize the Board of Trade, and at one time or 
another he was President of the Boy Scouts' Association, 
the Golf Club, the Football Club, the Aquatic Association, 
the Lacrosse Club, the Kelowna Club, the Hospital Society, 
the Agriculture and Trades Association. Truly he was a 
builder of the city — and not only the city one sees and 
hears. He must have enjoyed his years of retirement there, 
with old friends, and near his family in Vancouver. But 
many changes had taken place in Kelowna since he first 
arrived fifty years ago. 

When the School organized an Old Boys' Association in 
the West in the thirties, Mr. Philip DuMoulin gladly did the 
work of Secretary and his son, Len, was President. 


He and his brothers, Septimus, Frank, Edward and 
Walter, all came to T.C.S., his three sons, Tony, Len and 
Theo, and his grandson. Bill. 

Another of our Senior Old Boys has left us and we are 
the poorer for his going as the School is the stronger for 
his having been. "Velut arbor aevo."

Remarkable! In the matter of a few centuries man 
has evolved from the status of a mere primitive to his 
present position of being able to blow up both himself and 
all his neighbours with comparative ease. Progress is a 
wonderful thing, but is there going to be any future in 
which to enjoy it? 

The ninety-two odd countries of the earth boast a total 
population of about two billion people. "Countries" is the 
term usually applied, but perhaps it should be "teams," for 


apparently the governments of these units feel it necessary 
to jockey their charges into a position superior to their 
neighbour, employing methods varying from internal reform 
to the more common device of external warfare. 

A segment of these ruling bodies have been successful 
in enlisting public opinion by appealing to them through 
anthem-like "fight-songs" (preferably accompanied by the 
ponderous thundering of military bands and marching 
troops) and liberally spread propaganda aimed at giving 
their citizens a superiority complex. The inspiration of one 
leader of such a country was to grow a black moustache 
and forelock and to scream oaths and promises from Nurem- 
burg balconies. At first he was met with wild success, but 
the custom has become somewhat less popular since his 
friend, Benito, was found hanging upside-down outside an 
Italian gas station. 

Philosophers have often said on this subject that the 
world is just like a lot of little boys scrapping over a bag 
of marbles, and that when they grow up and mature they 
will learn to settle their problems in a civilized fashion. We 
challenge the validity of this theory, for does it hold true 
even in the cycle of human life? Do they build prisons and 
insane asylums for little boys? We think not! And now 
that the little shavers have learned to blow up not only 
themselves but everyone else with thermo-nuclear "bangs," 
we feel that matters must be shortly settled, and that a 
workable solution must be found by mutual agreement with- 
in our own generation. 

For this to be possible we must produce world leaders 
of a very high calibre indeed; the "Shorty" and "Stinky" 
of today's classroom must grow into men of greater stature 
than was ever before necessary, for does it not follow that 
the more complex the problem the higher the requirements 
of the solver? 

The requirements of this leader will be many. He must 
be above the political gimmicks which we have previously 
described, and must be the true voice of the people, the 


voice of humanity. Which is more important to the people, 
the power and prestige of their particular political unit and 
its government, or their way of life, their loved ones, and 
their very existence itself? This leader must be a states- 
man in the true sense of the word, but above all he must 
be a man of principles. 

What is a man of principles? Perhaps we can best ex- 
plain it by this simple analogy. There is a rowboat and a 
sailing dinghy heading upwind towards the same point on 
a distant shore. As the rowboat proceeds it alters its course 
slightly to make allowance for the shifting wind and the 
current, but its line of progress will always run through to 
its destination. On the other hand the sailboat must alter 
its course to suit each new gust, and consequently its line 
of progress will be very erratic. Since he cannot proceed 
directly upwind towards his goal, the sailing skipper must 
"tack"; that is, he must run close-hauled as close as he 
can to the wind. When he feels that his upwind progress 
no longer justifies the distance he is travelling from his 
destination, he will come about into the wind and onto a 
different tack. 

The sailboat could be likened to a man who lacks a 
definite set of principles. His course is altered by each new 
bit of information, his aim is forced off its mark by each 
new gust of opposition; there is no power within him that 
would enable the man to overcome these obstacles, and he 
will often lose sight of his goal. On realizing this, he might 
try to switch onto another tack, sincerely desiring to attain 
his goal, but again the same forces will defeat him. Of 
course he would eventually reach his destination, but has 
he time? How successful can he be in a world where the 
winds of opposition are strong and conflicting; the running 
tides of the past, on which he travels and from which he 
gleans his knowledge, discourage the possibility of his reach- 
ing his goal, or, in our little analogy, the required solution? 

The rowboat is the man of principle; the force which 
drives him through the water comes from within. He may 


alter his course to suit the situation, and compromise with 
the opposition where he must, but he functions independent 
of these forces, his eye remains doggedly fixed upon his 
destination. If he has the strength and the courage to keep 
pulling against these odds, he will be successful. The more 
men of principle fighting together for the same cause, pulling 
together towards a common goal, the more likely it is that 
they will surmount the difficulties and triumph. 

The "goal" is a workable, peaceful solution to the 
problems of man and the state; the "winds of opposition" 
are human frailties such as greed, pride, and ignorance; 
"the opposing tide" is history with its annals spilling over 
with the tales of men who were defeated in this self same 
quest; but what are "the principles"? 

Of course many people have many answers to this ques- 
tion, every group has a different one, but we should like to 
enlist support behind one of them. 

We believe that the answer lies in the dogma of the 
Christian faith, in its ideals and fundamental philosophy. 
At this time our teaching of it is, perhaps, too confined to 
reams of "do's" and "do not's," rules and biographies. We 
must seek further than this, we must grasp Christianity in 
its vaster sense, in the simple yet powerful philosophy 
expressed by Jesus Christ, based on infallible truths and 
logic. We must learn to understand this, for once under- 
stood it cannot but be accepted. We must take it into our 
very souls, live it, breathe it, not merely learn to follow it 
and spout it out like a memorized poem. 

If we can once attain this, we shall surely become men 
of high principle; from among us the leaders of tomorrow 
will rise, men of principle, men of the required standard. 
Then, and only then, will we emerge from this choking cloud 
of statistics, materialism, and petty politics. At that time 
our problems will resolve themselves in true perspective. 
Men will no longer toy with the idea of destroying them- 
selves and the earth, neither of which is theirs to destroy, 
and man shall live in peace and honour once again.

Trinity Boy Passes Out at Sight of Cigar-Smoking Gliost 

Dear Mr. Editor: 

This is indeed a very difficult letter to write. I do not 
consider myself an alarmist, nor am I in the habit of writing 
trumped-up letters to various publications, challenging 
them "to print this." In fact I never do it. At school I 
neither smoke nor drink strong beverage, seldom read 
"trashy" literature, and usually enjoy the maximum hours 
of sleep afforded by the school timetable. In short, I have 
every reason to believe that I am in tolerable mental health, 
or at least that was my impression up to and including 
yesterday evening. 

Mr. Editor, this morning I saw a ghost. How it is that 
I know it was a ghost I cannot say, but I will relate to you 
my experience and you must draw your own conclusions. 

Because month's marks have silently approached and 
caught me unawares, as they are wont to do, I decided that 
this morning I would hustle down to the library and do a 
little cramming. 

When I reached the far end of Brent, I noticed that 
there was a light burning in the library. I was surprised 
that another student should be similarly inspired at such a 
heathenish hour. Sleepily entering the library, I decided 
to sit down and thumb through a few magazines to allow 
my head to clear before getting down to serious study. While 
thus comfortably preoccupied, I became aware of a pair 
of heavy-heeled boots clumping about back among the 
shelves. This was followed by an off-beat tapping and the 
sound of someone humming a tune, the name of which re- 
mains unknown to me. All these sounds are common 
enough and caused me no concern. However, the next 
sensation was that the air contained more than a slight 
trace of cigar smoke! Here was justification for con- 
templation, and I became thoroughly aroused. Who on earth 
would be singing and smoking in the library at any time of 
the day, much less in these early hours? I decided to find 


Putting aside my magazine, I gathered up my books 
and slowly moved towards the rear of the library. Peering 
into the first study section I observed nothing, and so press- 
ed on with increased inquisitiveness to the second. It was 
there that curiosity nailed me as the cat's partner. 

Leaning back in his chair, feet on the table, a foul 
cigar clamped between his jaws, and with an air of com- 
plete indifference, sat a being who was almost transparent, 
a sort of phantom soldier. He was dressed in a worn and 
dirty uniform, somewhat similar to the ones used in that 
play, "Journey's End," last Easter, only displaying a bloody 
patch just below the neck, I expect you would say that he 
was of medium height, build, medium everything, though one 
detail I do remember very distinctly was the extreme white- 
ness of his complexion — the paleness of death. 

I can hardly describe to you my emotions at the time. 
I was sick, shocked, absolutely terrified, and completely 
overcome with physical paralysis, all at the same time. 
Noticing me, this "phantom trooper" slowly gained his feet, 
smiled an innocent good morning, tossed the book which 
he was reading on the table, and with a perfunctory nod 
sauntered nonchalantly down the carpet and left the library. 
Hesitantly I examined the book. It was as real as a book 
can be. 

All day I have been in a state of shock, as I am sure 
anyone else having a similar experience would be. It has 
been most humiliating to write out my story, for I realize, 
just as you do, that most of the people who read it will 
condemn it as being a trumped-up tale, but I ask you to 
print this letter so that anyone else who has also seen or 
heard of this creature may communicate with me through 
you. I only hope that the search will be successful. 

Name withheld by request. 

Our first reaction was probably the same as yours is 
now. We even planned to comment beneath the letter, 
"Really, old chap! Tell us, did he carry his head on his 
shoulders or tucked underneath his arm?" However, our 


hackles began to rise when we received a few days later this 
letter, in quite different handwriting and obviously not 
written by the same character. 

Dear Sir: 

This letter has nothing to do with our magazine, but 
it concerns a matter which I feel should be brought to the 
attention of the School, Last Sunday evening, during Even- 
song, I made my usual appraisal of the chapel gallery and 
was delighted to see a serviceman, dressed in some sort of 
traditional dress uniform I would say, intently listening to 
the sermon. That he looked rather pale and shoddy is 
absolutely no excuse for what followed. 

When the two seniors went up to the gallery to take 
up collection, they completely ignored him. It looked for 
all the world as if they didn't even see him or know that 
he existed. They passed him right by, although they gave 
everyone else in the entire gallery, including an elderly 
couple right behind him, the opportunity of contributing to 
the collection. I was surprised, shocked and ashamed at 
this flagrant breach of proper conduct, as, I am sure, was 
everyone else who witnessed this disgraceful incident. 

I trust that you will report this in the Record, and thus 
insure that there will not be a repetition of this outrage. 

Yours sincerely, 


As "name withheld by request" says, draw your own 
conclusions. It does, however, seem to be a rather intriguing 
coincidence does it not! At the moment, all we find our- 
selves able to say, and we must say it if we are not to out- 
rage "disgusted" again, is a cheery welcome to this Phantom 
Trooper. May his stay here be quiet and peaceful! Need- 
less to say, we would also appreciate any further informa- 
tion concerning our new-found friend. He looks very in- 
teresting ! — Ed. 



On November 18, Dr. R. K. Stratford, Scientific Adviser 
to Imperial Oil, spoke to the School in Chapel. He began 
by reviewing briefly the characteristics common to four 
great men as revealed in the following quotations. Two 
were playwrights. Sir J. M, Barrie, a Scot, and Edmond 
Rostand, a Frenchman. The others were an Irish philosopher, 
William Macneile Dixon, and an English scientist. Sir John 

The following is a quotation taken from "Science and 
Modern Life" by Sir John Russell. 

"We can never know all about even the simplest thing 
in Nature . . . and we can be sure that even that represents 
only the fringe of the subject and that far more lies beyond 
our present reach." 


The quotation used in illustration of Sir J. M. Barrie 
is taken from his book, "Courage." 

"Do not stand aloof, despising, disbelieving, but come 
in and help . . . There are glorious years lying ahead of 
you if you choose to make them glorious. God's in his 
heaven still. So forward, brave hearts." 

"The Human Situation," one of the great books of to- 
day, was written by William Macneile Dixon. Dr. Stratford 
cited this passage from the author's greatest achievement. 

" 'If we were to do nothing except for a certainty, one 
would do nothing for religion, for it is not certain.* It is 
Pascal who says so. . . . Pascal! We are none of us wise, 
we are all of us on the way to wisdom. Stand then to your 
principles, whatever they are. Take this side or that. Fol- 
low your star till you see a brighter." 

Giving a summary of Edmund Rostand's play, "Cjnrano 
de Bergerac," Dr. Stratford illustrated courage of a true 
nature revealed in Cyrano's words. 

"I know them now, my ancient enemies . . . Falsehood! 
. . . There! Three! Prejudice . . . Compromise . . . Cowardice 
. . . What's that? No! Surrender? No! Ah, you too. Vanity! 
I knew you would throw me in the end ... No! I fight on! 
I fight on! I fight on!" 


On Sunday, November 25, we were honoured to have as 
speaker in Chapel the Rev. B. K. Cronk, pastor of the United 
Church in Port Hope. 

Mr. Cronk took his text from the seventeenth chapter 
of the Acts of the Apostles in which we find Paul very 
annoyed with the idol worship practised by the Athenians. 
Continuing along this theme, Mr. Cronk noted that some 
people today do not take pride in their beliefs or their 
religion. This is, however, the wrong viewpoint. To correct 
it we should know what type of God we believe in. 


First of all, we believe God to be our Creator and we 
the guardians of his world. Since He is the "Father" of 
mankind, we should be kind and considerate towards our 
"brothers" regardless of their race, religion, colour, or 
social status. They are our equals. 

God is also a spirit, Mr. Cronk continued, and we believe 
him to be everywhere — through all ages and in all places. 
He is also an eternal being, living always and with us 
always, no matter what happens. 

In conclusion, Mr. Cronk once again emphasized the 
fact that it is very important what we believe about God. 
It makes a great difference in our lives and our attitude 
towards others. It helps us to know what to do in every- 
day life and encourages us to look to the future. 


Canon Lawrence spoke to us in Chapel on December 9. 
He revealed to us that the program of teaching for the 
second Sunday in Advent has been the same since before 
the reformation, the emphasis being on the Holy Scripture. 

The collect for the day contains the idea of hope in 
these words, "that we ever embrace and hold fast the blessed 
hope of everlasting life." 

Canon Lawrence made clear the wide use of the word 
"hope" by illustrating its application through biblical 
quotations. We find the word has had great significance 
to all the Jewish nation. Messianic hope (Hope for the 
coming of the Messiah) resulted in talking, thinking and 
writing throughout the Jewish Nation. 

Had the Hebrews been a powerful nation, they might 
never have hoped for a Deliverer, a Saviour. This hope first 
began during the many years spent in slavery in Egypt. 

Through centuries conditions grew worse and hope of 
Israel became more deeply rooted. Their hope was that 
one day the Messiah would come to deliver them from their 


We find evidence that their hope was fulfilled in the 
fact that we, throughout the Christian world, sing Hebrew 
psalms and pray to the God of the Hebrews. 

In three short years of actual teaching our Lord brought 
to the world hope for the everlasting life to come. 


On January 13, Canon Lawrence addressed the School 
in the first Sunday service of the New Year. He said that 
Jesus had once told his listeners, "Remember Lot's wife." 
Our Lord was thinking of the expected destruction of 
Jerusalem when everyone would have to evacuate the city 
on a moment's notice. He warned them not to be like Lot's 
wife, who was imable to quickly tear herself away from 
the burning city of Sodom where she had hved for many 
years. Because of her inability to disentangle herself from 
her old environment and adjust to a new one, she was turned 
into a pillar of salt. For us this means that death was 
her penalty for clinging too tightly to past associations and 
probably fearing the future. 

In great literature we notice how the forward attitude 
and the ability to detach oneself from the past is emphasized. 
Levi, the publican, and Francis of Assisi both left their 
secure positions and associations for an unsure future in 
the Chiu-ch. Ulysses, unlike his lotus-poisoned men, was 
anxious to quit his soft existence and sought to "sail beyond 
the paths of the western stars." 

The warning that Jesus gave to his listeners has special 
significance for us on this occasion. We should not spend 
our time regretting the past, but rather look forward to 
this coming new year with hope and courage. 



On January 20, the Honourable Mr. Justice P. H. Gor- 
don ('00-'02) of Regina spoke in Chapel. 

He began by remarking on what a wonderful institution 
the boarding school was. When you leave you are a member 
of the greatest fraternity on earth, and have friends that 
will last all your life. While you are here the terms may 
seem long, but once you are out, you realize they were all 
too short, and you see how fortunate you were to be able 
to come here. 

Judge Grordon then told a story illustrating a funda- 
mental principle which a person should follow. A frightened 
team of dogs stopped at the edge of a frozen bay and 
refused to go further. Aboard the sled was the antitoxin 
necessary to save the people of Nome, Alaska, from a 
diphtheria epidemic. But Balto, the lead dog, had such faith 
in his master's judgement that he ventured out on the ice 
and inspired the other dogs to follow his example. They 
reached Nome and the people were saved. This shows that 
we too should put our trust in our Master and his teach- 
ings, and do our best by following his example. Remember 
Christ's promise to us: "Be thou faithful unto death and 
I will give you a crown of life." 

Mr. Justice Grordon's whole message was contained in 
the School motto, "Beati mundo corde" — "Blessed are the 
pure in heart." To be pure in heart, he said, was the rock 
foundation of a good character. 


On Sunday, January 27, the Reverend H. B. Snell spoke 
in Chapel. In his introduction he stated that Christ set 
forth his ideas on achieving happiness in the Beatitudes, 
the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. Mr. Snell told 
us the meaning of one of these, namely, "Blest are the 
pure in heart, for they shall see God." In this instance, 


the "heart" refers to the mind, which Jesus knew to have 
a great effect on true happiness and physical health. In 
our modern age, Mr. Snell continued, much evil is often 
concealed behind a facade of beauty, like scurrilous books 
bound in attractive covers; true Christians know that to 
yield to convention in these cases is to pollute the mind. 
Knowing that God is present everywhere, we can see Him 
by observing his beautiful handiwork in Nature. God also 
reveals himself to us in human nature; for example, the 
lives of the saints. Unfortunately, cynical and selfish acts 
take precedence in most places, even in the newspapers, 
over acts of unselfishness and self-sacrifice. However, if 
we seek God now and serve Him, we will see Him even 
more clearly in heaven. In this way, a pure life leads to a 
vision of God. Worshipping together is one way of being 
close to God and growing in purity and holiness; we should 
always expect God's message to cleanse and guide us. 

Secondly, daily Bible reading lets God pierce the dark- 
ness of our world with his shining grace and power. Thirdly, 
we should spend some quiet time alone daily, when we can 
sense more keenly God's presence. Through these three 
methods of service we may be blessed by seeing God. 

By ]^ir. C Soott 

Texts: Zech. 8-16, Execute the judgment of truth and 
peace shall be in your gates. 

Jerem. 7-23: Obey my voice that it may be well with 

Matth. 7-7: Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye 
shall find. 

These three texts might be reduced to three words as 
headings for the three points I want to pass on to you this 
evening. These leading words are truth, obey, and ask or 
pray. So I want to stress them as they are related to our 
daily life and dealings with others. 


In reading the Bible one is impressed with the number 
of times reference is made to truth and obedience and in 
nearly every case they are closely related to one another 
and also to the peace of mind and well-being which result 
from their observance. 

You may remember in St. John's account of the trial 
of Jesus before Pilate, that Our Lord said that He was born 
into this world that He might bear witness unto the truth, 
and Pilate answered with the question, "What is truth?" 
and without waiting for an answer went out and spoke to 
the Jews who were demanding Christ's crucifixion. 

Without daring to give an answer to that question, I 
suppose it would be a fair but entirely inadequate statement 
that truth is that property in every phase of nature which 
keeps the world spinning and you and me able to enjoy 
our lives. In order to demonstrate what I mean, let us con- 
sider two widely different examples. First, if you plant a 
plumstone and leave it alone in good ground for some time, 
there will grow from it a plum tree whether or not it is 
surrounded by trees of any other sort. Nature is true to 
type. If it were not so all our sowing and planting would 
lead to chaos and trouble. For my other example let us 
consider the tire of a car. You might be the proud owner 
of the finest car made with every luxury and all the latest 
devices but if one tire is flat, that is, not a true circle, there 
will be no peace, no comfort, no progress. 

And so it is that investigators for hundreds and even 
thousands of years have sought for the truth of many of 
nature's secrets and as a result of their efforts we are 
able to enjoy the many conveniences which we accept as 
essential to everyday life, to our comfort and peace of mind. 
Our telephones, televisions, cars and planes are among the 
hundreds of results achieved in one branch of study. 

Similarly medical research into the truth of the 
mechanisms of the human body has done wonders for the 
improvement of the health of the million. 


Similarly again, philosophers, statesmen, educationists 
and others, by their efforts to find the truth in the matter 
of human relationships have slowly and sometimes pain- 
fully built our present democracy of which we boast so 
much. We must admit that there are many faults to be 
corrected, and why; is it not that it has for its foundation 
personal and individual truth and honesty? 

Now it is to be observed that in an argument with 
friend or foe, one is apt to watch very keenly that he keeps 
strictly to the truth and one is annoyed or even angered 
if it is found that he has not done so — especially if it is 
one's own words or actions that are under discussion. But — 
are we always as careful when we are relating our own 
actions or the actions of others, to keep to the truth with 
the same consistency as we expect from them. I think not. 

Again, where we are far less careful of the truth, or 
shall I say, like Pilate, do not enquire too deeply into the 
matter, is when we examine our own thoughts or the reasons 
for our own conduct on various occasions, we prefer to 
think of something else like Pilate, not to have our Lord's 
answer to his question, "what is truth." 

Now let us consider for a short time the second text: — 
Obey my voice that it may be well with you. The very word 
obey possibly has the effect of making many of us shrink 
into ourselves thinking that we have enough or too much 
of that in our school life. Every time the bell rings we 
have to do something. I can hear someone thinking, "Now 
I have to go and play hockey, another, now I have to go and 
eat, another, now I have to go to bed." Notice, it is not 
that we dislike the thing we have to do but it is the obliga- 
tion to do it now. It is not strange therefore that any boy 
and especially those who are in their last year should look 
forward with keen anticipation to the time when there will 
be no more bells, no calls to get up, to eat, or to go to bed. 
But, and it is a very big but, have these school years which 
rush by so fast that you are amazed that you have been 
through it all from fagging to prefect or senior, have they 


served to teach you the necessity for self discipline. Would 
you without those bells have brought yourselves to your 
present state of achievement? Many of you would answer 
yes to that question but on the other hand they are a help 
to many and all of you are learning, I hope, almost un- 
consciously the real value of obedience and self -discipline 
and if not, what is to help you when the restraints of school 
are removed. 

In these years of school life there are many hours spent 
according to your own desires. Are you during these times 
which are the most important in the formation of you as 
a man, setting up laws and regulations for your own con- 
duct? In your games, and still more important, in your idle 
hours, are you obeying the very clear dictates of your con- 
science or do you try to push it aside? Obey my voice and 
it shall be well with you. Your conscience is the voice of 
God and your truest friend and guide whether now or in 
later life. There is no time in life when we can disobey 
that still small voice and yet have peace in ourselves. We 
are free to act as we like, we have free will but we must 
remember that every thought, word or action has its effect 
on our future either for good or for ill. If we give way 
once it is easier to do so again. Also if we win once it is 
easier to do so again. And so we come back to the subject 
of truth. You cannot lie to yourself and get away with it. 
To thine own self be true and it must follow as the night 
the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. We owe 
it to ourselves to lay down laws which shall not be broken. 
Obedience does not end with the end of school life but 
begins at that point with more insistence as it is then based 
on self control and self discipline. 

Now when we stress self control and self discipline the 
question arises as to whether that is the best that is avail- 
able to us. Some of us at this time of the year are getting 
anxious about our progress especially after the results of 
the last examinations. We returned this term with fresh 
resolutions. We may feel that we have got into some bad 


habits, that we were careless of our thoughts, our words. 
If we have become weak and failed in our resolves it ia 
perhaps that we have relied too much on ourselves. We 
have been too proud, too self-satisfied or too lazy to seek 
help from that source which never fails. If you are weak, 
ask for strength; if you are false to yourself, go to the 
source of truth. Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth and 
the life. Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall 
find. And here we are at the subject of prayer. Bring your 
problems, whatever they are, whether algebra, latin or your- 
self, whatever you find hard to master, take them to Jesus 
Christ, the way, the truth and the life. Let Him speak to 
you in this Chapel and at His altar and then with faith 
and patience and His strength go back to your books. 

Every morning we stand up and say the Lord's prayer — 
give us this day our daily bread, and remember that He 
said, "man does not live by bread alone but by every word 
that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 

Truth, obedience, prayer, T.O.P. top, and of these three 
virtues or accomplishments the highest is prayer for in this 
last we receive from Him the power for truth and the 
peace of mind which results, and the well-being which fol- 
"ows from obedience to His will. 


On Sunday, February 17, the School was privileged 
to hear the Rev. Mr. Baird of Port Hope speak in Chapel. 
Mr. Baird took for his text. Job 38:28: "Hast thou not 
entered into the treasure of the snow?" He noted that 
his reference showed us that snow did have mention in the 

Snow appears as frozen drops of water which are white 
in colour. This is only partially correct since the white 
colour is only reflected light. Hence snow is, in one way, 
not what it seems to be. Herein we see a truth which 
applies to us also. Many people appear outwardly to act in 
one way but in reality their inner self is quite different. 


Snow also shows the beauty of God even though man 
often does not realize it. For example, snow, to the motorist, 
appears to be only a hindrance. Actually the well-known 
substance we call snow serves an invaluable purpose in pro- 
tecting vegetation during the winter, thus giving an example 
of God's goodness to man. 

Finally, the white colour, which is usually associated 
with snow, could be compared to the purity of God, neces- 
sary in our hearts, bodies, and minds for good living. 

In closing, Mr. Baird showed that these characteristics 
should indicate the beauty of snow, and so remind us of 
the three necessities of our lives: beauty, goodness and 


On Sunday, December 16, the annual Christmas Carol 
Service was held in the Memorial Chapel. Many visitors 
had taken their places as the choir entered the sanctuary 
singing the processional hymn, "Adeste Fideles." 

The first lesson, read by J. A. Burton of Boulden House, 
outlined God's promise to Abraham that in his seed, all the 
nations of the earth should be blessed. The choir then sang 
"Gabriel's Message," a carol from an old Basque Noel, the 
senior choir following with "Christ is Born" (Bridge) . Both 
numbers were unaccompanied. 

The second reading, by C. E. Chaffey, followed "O 
Little Town of Bethlehem" and outlined Christ's birth and 
Kingdom as related by the prophet Isaiah. "Good King 
Wenceslas" was sung with Higgins, Naylor and Seagram as 
soloist. After this, the choir sang "If Ye Would Hear" 
(Williams, Shaw) and the junior choir "Our Brother is 
Born" (Far jean). The whole congregation took part in 
singing the traditional carol, "Shepherds in the Field Abid- 

The third lesson, relating the angel Gabriel's visit to 
the blessed Virgin Mary, was read by C. J. English. The 


choir continued with "Whence Come You Good Shepherd" 
(Willan) and the senior choir with N. J. Boyd and S. A. 
Saunders as soloists sang "What Child is This?" to the old 
English carol tune of Greensleeves. Preceding the fourth 
lesson by C. H. S. Dunbar, which outlined the journey of 
the shepherds unto the manger, the congregation as a whole 
sang "The First Nowell." The choir followed with "The 
Holly and the Ivy" (Walford-Davies) which was divided 
among the jimiors and seniors of the choir, with the juniors 
soloing the verses while the full choir came in on the chorus. 
"Ding! Dong! Merrily on High" (Wood) was the next carol 
to be sung. 

The Headmaster related St. John's imparting of the 
mystery of the incarnation in the final lesson, taken from 
St. John I. The collection was received during the offertory 
hymns, "Silent Night" and "While Shepherds Watched Their 
Flocks by Night." After the prayers and the Blessing the 
choir retired from the gallery and recessed out of the chapel 
during the hymn "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." 

So ended another excellent Christmas carol service. We 
extend our thanks and gratitude to Mr. Cohu and the choir 
who spent a great deal of practice time to make the service 
a complete success. 




At the beginning of December the School contributed 
$262.00 to Hungarian Relief; the sale of a Christmas Card 
designed and executed by Hugh Gordon, and printed by the 
Librarians and members of the Art class, brought in close to a 
hundred dollars. 

A draft for $362.00 was sent to Mrs. Amea Willoughby 
whose husband is a member of the U.S. Embassy in Vienna. 
Mrs. Willoughby, a daughter of the Rev. F. H. Brewin, had 
worked from the beginning to help the refguees in every way; 
she wrote a most appreciative letter to the School, and 
said she was devoting the sum to the Children's Friendship 
Fund. "Such a gift was never more needed and appreciated . . . 
It was a frantic effort to try to make bricks without straw 
. . , We try to help all ages and kinds and run the kitchen with 
22 volunteers seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. 
Yesterday we fed 3800 refugees who had stood in the cold 
from dawn to dusk" 


Once again the collection at the Carol Service went to 
help needy families in Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, London, 


Kingston and Port Hope. Both young and old were given 
assistance in the form of food and clothing and most appre- 
ciative letters were received by the School. 


This year's dinner was marked by the same high 
spirits that had prevailed the previous year, mainly stem- 
ming from the fact that the First Football team had emerged 
from the Little Big Four season tied for the Championship 
with St. Andrew's. The dinner saw the return of many 
Old Boys and the attendance of a greater number of parents 
of players than ever before. 

The Headmaster read many of the congratulatory 
messages that he and Mr. Lawson had received on behalf 
of the team. The guest speaker, Mr. Seppi DuMoulin, long 
time player and officer of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, spoke 
on the high quality of the athletic programme run at T.C.S. 
and gave us some colourful glimpses from the pages of 
Canadian Football history. Mr. DuMoulin, widely recognized 
as Canada's "grand old man of sports," talked to us about 
standards in games, and in particular about the high calibre 
of sportsmanship for which the Little Big Four has always 
been noted. He deplored the present trend throughout the 
country towards an excessively professional attitude, with 
its emphasis on winning even at the cost of the game it- 
self. We were reminded that schools such as T.C.S. must 
set the pattern for a return to the classic traditions of the 
Greeks who were true amateurs and played solely for the 
joy and honour of healthy competitive activity. Mr. DuMoulin 
was proud to feel that T.C.S. boys continue as always to 
play wholeheartedly and successfully, without ever ceasing 
to be gentlemen. He congratulated the team on its success 
in combining excellence in proficiency with excellence in 

Mr. Argue Martin, Chairman of the Board of Gover- 
nors, congratulated all the teams on their fine performance 


and he was followed by Mr. Lawson, the coach, who made 
special reference to the fine spirit of co-operation displayed 
by all members of the team. Mr. Hodgetts explained the 
football system in vogue at the School in his reply to the 
toast to the team. Phil Muntz, another football celebrity, 
was called upon to say a few words on professional football. 
He strongly recommended that the boys play football at 
college if it were at all possible. 

When the last of the festivities were over, Mrs. Clarke 
and her kitchen staff were toasted for the excellent dinner 
that they had prepared and everybody retired to the 
Assembly Hall to see the movies of the Upper Canada game. 


The School was honoured on February 8 by the visit 
of one of Canada's foremost poets, Wilson MacDonald. In 
the assembly room, Mr. MacDonald told the School how 
he came to write some of his poems. He told us of several 
experiences and then read the poems that he had been in- 
spired to write about them. He related the story of a young 
Scotch lass, seven years old, whom he had met in Vancouver 
and had grown fond of. WTien he unfortunately had to 
leave her he was heartbroken, and looked forward with 
great anticipation to the day when he would be able to 
return and see her again. When at last this day did come 
he wandered to their favourite spot by the seashore, and 
when he could not find her he asked for her. "But haven't 
you heard?" the people said. "Little brown Dee has died." 
Mr. MacDonald then wrote one of his favourite poems, 
"Whist A Wee," in memory of this sweet child. 

Wilson MacDonald then told the School of a wonder- 
ful natural ski jump in Vermont which he had often been 
over. The thrill of the jump with the whistle of the wind 
in his ear and the birch trees flashing past him like etchings 
against the blue sky made such an impression on him that 
he was inspired to write the "Song of the Ski." 


Mr. MacDonald showed us one of his books, "The Lyric 
Years," which has a poem for each month of the year written 
in his own italic handwriting which varied according to the 
month, heavy and bold for the winter, light and breezy 
for the summer months. Mr. MacDonald spent several years 
of his life in transforming Biblical passages into poetry and 
composing music to sing them to. Others of his books from 
which he read poetry were "A Flagon of Beauty," "Armand 
Dussault," "Caw-Caw Ballads," and "Out of the Wilderness." 

Mr. MacDonald kindly stayed behind later to talk with 
some of the Sixth Form boys. The School was greatly im- 
pressed by his many poems and our thanks are due him 
for his much appreciated visit. 


January 25, 9.30 p.m., the Assembly Room. The theme 
song for the evening was a rather unconventional vocal, 
arranged to the tune of the Saints. Accompaniment was 
provided by Adam Saunders' world-famed quintet. The 
feature was soon to follow on the programme as the Weeper 
struck up a solo beat. Noranda ran the show and, we 
imderstand, reported unfit for service to Mr. Cohu the fol- 
lowing day. 


This term has been a very successful one for the 
library, especially in obtaining new books. Since last Novem- 
ber, the library has obtained 181 books, many donated and 
the rest bought by the library itself. Among the donors 
were P. Gross, Mrs. S. C. Goering, G. N. Bethune, F. K. A. 
Rutley, W. Holton, Imperial Oil, Lionel Massey, Canon 
Lawrence, and Mrs. P. A. C. Ketchum. The paper-back shelf 
has helped to increase the reading in the School from forty 
books last year at this time to one hundred and forty-two 
books this year — a very large increase. 


From the Suggestion Book which was placed in the 
library have come many worth-while additions such as 
"The Mary Deare" and "An American Tragedy." This Sug- 
gestion Book is a great aid to the library in buying books 
because it gives us an indication of our readers' interests. 


On February 10, the School was honoured by a visit 
from Mr. David E. Wallis, an aeronautical engineer, who 
showed some slides and talked to us on the fascinating 
story of the conquest of space. 

Before showing his slides Mr. Wallis explained that the 
history of rocket development can be divided into three 
stages. The first stage began with the invention of the 
rocket by the Chinese in 1225. The second stage saw the 
development of the high altitude rockets, the first being 
the German V-2, initially launched in 1942. The third stage 
of development is just about to begin this year, 1957, with 
the tiny, basketball-sized satellites which, it is hoped, will 
send much important information back to earth. 

Through his slides Mr. Wallis showed us all the im- 
portant developments in rockets since the V-2. In describing 
the modern rockets, he explained that they are constructed 
in three stages or sections, each with its own fuel supply. 
The first two stages are designed to leave the last stage at 
the right moment and to return to the earth by parachute. 
Mr. Wallis said that in the next four years piloted space 
ships will be sent out into space to circle the earth in an 
orbit for short lengths of time. Like the satellites they will 
gather more scientific information before returning to the 

The first trip outside the gravitational pull of our 
planet will be to the moon and should come within the next 
twenty years. The first expedition will just circle the moon, 
gleaning scientific information from the mysterious "other 
side." Succeeding expeditions will land on the moon and 
eventually set up a base there.

After the moon will come Mars. When we have landed 
on the "red planet" and explored it, a base will be established 
there too. We will encounter many problems on Mars and 
on the moon, many of which we are preparing for now, 
but Mr. Wallis feels confident that we shall overcome them 
all, and that someday we will populate the other planets. 

After his most interesting talk, Mr. Wallis was asked 
many questions about rockets and the exploration of space. 
In his answers we learned many things which we had never 
before realized. 

We should like to express our sincere thanks to Mr. 
Wallis for a most entertaining and profitable evening. 


It is not often that T.C.S. has had the privilege of enter- 
taining two distinguished authors in one term but that was 
the case this Lent Term. Mr. Peter Fleming came to Port 
Hope to address the Canadian Club and had lunch in Hall. 
The Headmaster introduced him to the School, mentioning 
particularly his amazing travels in the Orient and South 
America, the fascinating stories he had written and his dis- 
tinguished war service. Succinctly and wittily Mr. Fleming 
told the School some of the sine qua non's for a traveller and 

Mr. and Mrs. David Walker were in Hall for lunch on the 
day the Management Committee of the T.C.S. Fund met at 
the School. It was also the day we entertained visiting teams 
hence it was not possible to ask Mr. Walker to speak to the 
School. He was a prisoner for most of the war and for ten 
years he has been living in the Maritimes where he has writ- 
ten most of his books. He travels much to obtain new ma- 

There has been a run on Peter Fleming and David 
Walker in the Library ever since their visit. 


Spring came suddenly to T.C.S. this year: in the middle 
of March it was still winter, with ice on the outside rink, 
and all the ponds in the country frozen. Ten days later there 
was no ice or snow outside, boys were playing tennis and 
throwing cricket balls around, and the trees were full of 
birds. But there is still cold air in too large quantities. 

Two young Old Boys have spoken in Chapel this term, 
John Dowker and Mr. Sandy Heard, and their remarks made 
a deep impression on the School. Next term, John Barton 
is coming to spend a week end at the School and in the 
autumn we hope to have Tom Wilding and David Smith. John 
Barton and John Dowker are being ordained in June and 
Tom Wilding and David Smith are to be ordained a year 
from June. 



As the good ship "BETHUNE" majestically sweeps 
over the rolling swells of life's vicissitudes, a stocky figure 
paces the bridgehead with the determined confidence of a 
man who is steeped in the ancient traditions of LADY 


BETHUNE. This, of course, is our captain. The attitude 
of the ship's company is the same as his, from the Officer 
of the Watch down to the landlubbers who joined the ship 
at Pointe de Septembre. The ideaJs of our Patron Lady 
have gripped us all, well, almost all. if it were not for that 
wisp of smoke curling heavenwards from the crow's nest! 

Boiling along over the BOUNDYing main, the ship is 
witness to many tragic tales. Take the story of that stal- 
wart mariner BILLeted in the engine room, BLACKER 
than most, who complains that a fair young maiden back 
in old T.O. has done him wrong. "S.HART," he says, though 
his shattered ego is somewhat soothed by WALTER'S Hi-Fi, 
blaring and echoing off the bulkheads, oozing through the 
tender aroma of SHRIMPS and KIPpers, invading even the 

Down the spotless corridor the story has a similar ring. 
CAW still dreams of lying in the HEATHER back in the 
old country, though DOUG has done his utmost to drum 
the idea out of his head. "MARK my words," he warns, 
"your little LAMBykins will reduce you to another URCHIN 
before you're through!" "Gad!", sez CAW, visibly shaken. 

Swanking about on the Middle Deck we find quite a 
remarkable part of the clan. HOPEY seems to like roughing 
it without sheets, and in the same vein , GORGEOUS 
GEORGE appears to feel that white shirts are night shirts! 
Unfortunately, in the far corner, GAVIN has contracted 
BARRY-BARRY, his face GREY with pain, his head swathed 
in a cooling TOWLE. JOHN was so worried that he took 
a SEABORNe taxi all the way from Oshawa! However, it 
was all to no avail, for the patient passed to his reward 
(J.R.S.) on the following Sunday. 

Down the way where the KNIGHTs are gay a new 
addition has been made. A stork came WINGing across 
that HUGHge watery expanse sometime before DON, made 
a rather SHAKEY landing on the WOODen after-deck, and 
ceremoniously deLEVered its precious burden. Congratula- 
tions to those involved! 


Scrambling onto the upper deck, we are thrust into 
the glittering brilliance given off by the senior academic 
minds aboard ship; KAPUS and his cohorts are at it again. 
Meanwhile, caring not a whit for such knavery, SMILEY 
joyously caresses the ORGAN keyboard, bringing forth 
beautiful music until way into the night. All this is brought 
to an abrupt end when GROPO is attacked by a bat in his 
room. He lets out a SAVAGE bellow and pretty soon has 
everyone in a real STEW. 

Meanwhile nearly all those aboard have become in- 
fatuated with life at sea, and in another section of the ship 
several of them are discussing the possibility of enrolling 
in the Royal Navy. 

"The R.N.", sez NEEK, "is purely for FARMERS." 
"Yeah," agrees ROSS, "them LIMEYs kin hardly speak 

"Much rather fly m'self," sez BWAWN. 
"Clamaud!" sez GERALD. 

At the conclusion of this intelligent interchange of 
ideas, the various participants stand up groggily, yawning, 
STRETCH their backs, SPREAD their arms wide, shake 
themselves awake, and lounge over towards the rail. After 
a few minutes of reflection, silently observing the darkening 
waters, they disappear one by one below decks. 

Evening deepens around the ship, and soon night has 
drained the colour from the western sky, but the good ship 
BETHUNE sails onward, sure of purpose, in full knowledge 
of her destination. The water slips beneath her bow, like 
time itself, and drifts back into the wake where it is 
momentarily molded into nostalgia before fading into 
obscurity. Some of the waves on the surface of time are 
larger than others, affect the ship and the crew more than 
others, but they too are soon forgotten. But through it all, 
through hardship and success, through human life and death, 
the good ship BETHUNE steams through time to destiny.

Hello, Friends, and other beings. It's time for another 
session with Homely Herbert, your country style disc-jockey. 
And now AL'S theme, "all day, all night MARY-ANNE" 
dedicated by the athletes in the Bellaire Club. Seems like 
ADAM, NORANDA and HIGGER wanted to catch the 
bus — but they're not the only ones eh! RUFUS. Talking 
about travel, YOUNG'S been seen in a VOLKES wagon 
lately. There's a new L.P. out, "ORGAN AROUND." The 
Bigside mob had a sleigh-ride and that ain't hay. Meanwhile 
back in the barn . . . New act out. It's caught the monacher 
of "The Three Rabbis." It's very nice. O SO what's next? 
Some of the men got STEWed at Wallers. No one will for- 
get FUZZIE'S goal. Who's that kid in the barn in glasses 
anyway? Hockey trips to Toronto are MARY, aren't they 
SPADE? And now some requests, to CORINTHIA from 
FOU-FOU thanks to PIGLET I, to B.J. from CHRIS and 
remember GEORGE, safety first. And now this is Homely 
Herbert signing off. 






There comes a day in the life of every boarding school 
man when he climbs aboard a bus, usually to travel to 
another school for a game of some sort. These trips are 
always keenly anticipated as a change in the routine, as a 
chance to represent T.C.S. against some rival, and, (let's 
face it!) , an opportunity to take in some of those city lights 
which he left behind when he came to school. These excur- 
sions are among the highlights of life at any out-of-town 
boarding school. Someday, though, the last trip will end 
in front of Trinity House, and only then will they be truly 

Do you remember those times when you climbed aboard 
a bus for the return trip to Port Hope? If the game was 
successful then everybody was in a good mood, if the game 
was unsuccessful . . . well, dour expressions did not cloud 
many faces for long. That return trip is the best cure-all 
for those "down-in-the-mouth" spirits, for who is going to 
sit quietly when there are all those songs to be sung before 
reaching school? It's during moments like this that you 
realize how much you are enjoying yourself with some of 
the best friends that you'll ever make. 

The trip from School to the field of battle is much 
quieter by comparison. It's still too early in the morning 
to want to make any noise, and most thoughts are turned 
towards the coming contest. Everyone settles down and 


stares vacantly at the passing countryside. On Toronto 
trips the most important feature of the landscape is the 
"Wishing Bridge," a narrow little stone tunnel under the 
railway which, because of its low height and arched ceiling, 
forces the bus to pass through it in the centre of the road. 
There must be silence from the passengers as the bus hurtles 
through, to strengthen your wish. It will be a sad day 
indeed when the "Wishing Bridge" crumbles under the heel 
of progress. 

Of course, with every trip someone must stay behind. 
The School is silent as all the lads sweat away in their 
study, but suddenly the throaty roar of the returning bus 
passing the classroom block breaks the spell. Windows 
scrape open and cries of "Who won?", are shouted at the 
first figures off the bus as it grinds to a stop with a hiss 
of air brakes. Rumours fly. "Bigside lost? Littleside won 
by six goals!" Finally everybody has gleaned the truth 
from some tired boys after they have tossed their equipment 
on the floor of the changing room. We won after all and 
so to bed. 


T.C.S. is very lucky to be located on the eastern edge 
of Port Hope overlooking the countryside and Lake Ontario. 
From the School hill one can see to the east the hills near 
Cobourg with the flat farmland in between. By looking 
northward past Boulden House, one is able to visualize the 
ski camp nestled in its wooded valley among the trees. A 
mile south of the School lies Lake Ontario with the Peter 
Rock lighthouse some distance out from shore. In this area 
of farmland and bush there is much to do for a boy with 
some spare time. 

One eagerly awaited event of nature that is as old as 
T.C.S. itself is the annual run of suckers up Gage's creek 
every spring. On a warm spring Saturday, the only thing 
to do is to find a light but strong club and head for the 


creek with some other "fishermen." On arrival, the 
technique is to wade into the shallows and apply the club 
to a sucker before he swims out of reach, as he most cer- 
tainly will do his best to make a sucker out of you! It is 
not as easy as it sounds since these fish swim at a great 
rate of speed and the bottom is none too even except for 
a few flats where the fish are never found. In a good day, 
a bag of several hundred suckers will satisfy all concerned 
and a soaking wet but happy and bedraggled lot of boys 
will leave the creek and run (it's too cold to walk) back 
to School for supper. Thus passes a spring Saturday. 

Winter brings a variety of occupations to the fore. One 
of these is exploring the weird ice formations on the shore 
of the lake. The actions of high winds, big waves, and cold 
weather all combined produce all sorts of different shapes 
and large floes that often extend forty yards out from 
shore. Natural ice bridges are formed and small "volcanic" 
mountains of ice are common. One can look down the cone 
and see the icy water heaving back and forth with the 

Still on the subject of ice, the Ganaraska River pro- 
duces some good sport during the spring break-up. The ice 
above the old dam breaks up into large cakes which are 
large enough to be ridden like rafts on their journey down- 
stream. Inevitably, everyone falls, or is thrown, in and that 
rather puts a damper on things. 

A favourite walk is south of the School to the C.P.R. 
main line, east along it to Gage's creek, then back to the 
School by the road. On a beautiful day, this walk always 
seems to do something for you! 

To the north of town lies the Pat Moss ski camp to 
which small groups of boys may travel for a week-end. Here 
there is lots to do no matter what the season. The latest 
addition to the camp is popularly known as the "Animal" — 
a type of sleigh made from old skis and boards. Once down 
the steep hill on the "Animal" and you'll have something 
to talk ^bout for a long time to come. Another pastime, 


just as tiring but a little gentler, is exploring the large 
woodland traversed by the headwaters of Gage's creek. 

Thus, with its location, T.C.S. is able to offer many 
things to those who can find a spare afternoon aside from 
School activities. The skier and the rare bird watcher can 
both pursue their interests in the immediate vicinity of the 
School. It all adds up to "never a dull moment." 


"Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so." Thus, 
after two discouraging hours at night, we usually find that 
studies resolve themselves into the "bad" category. Thinking 
out mathematical sticklers or, perhaps, interpreting Juliet's 
actual interest in Romeo, tends to bore the mind. The latter, 
quite reasonably, less so than the former. 

Proceed with me, if you will, to the various study abodes, 
being careful of course to tread lightly in avoidance of the 
Master On Duty. Firstly, a typical bottom flat room has its 
door ever so slightly propped open. Assuredly our fear of 
the prowling authorities is shared by others ! These two must 
be scholars for they are undisturbed by our entry. Front or 
no they appear to be thirsty for knowledge. 

We find that the venerable seat of learning, the library, 
is disturbed by the cat requesting entrance somewhat vol- 
ubly. "Don't let the kitty get in," chants one. Another, with 
more affection for the feline intruder, opens up the window 
and the cat leaps in. It treads softly across the table and rubs 
against someone's lowered head. In the commotion that fol- 
lows, a librarian appears on the scene, and soon removes the 
popular hero. Silence returns. 

As we approach the H and K supervised study, we meet 
two fellows just exiting from the classrooms. 

"Hey, where are you going?" 

They, in unison, "Haircut!" 

"Joke session you mean," I mutter under my breath, re- 
ferring to Roy's speciality. 


Peering in through the open door of H and K we see a 
picture of mass concentration. One joker in the corner tries 
firing a dart, but on receiving four quarters he gets back 
to work mighty quickly. 

Yet how incomplete is the picture one gets from this 
tour of inspection! It so appears that the diligent go beyond 
the compulsory periods and delve into the books in the mo- 
ments of spare time during the day. Extra study to some is 
compulsory. These few indulge in supplementary enlighten- 
ment during the afternoon. 

Shortly after six a.m., the early bird awakens to 
the loud announcement of his alarm, and follows one of 
two courses open to him. He either admits defeat and saws 
back into his log, or else he bravely gets up and half sleeps, 
half walks, to the library. Silence at TCS seems queer, and the 
studious one feels quite alone until others join him at his 
early morning occupation. Feeling his cramming complete, 
our early worm-seeker shambles back to bed, oversleeps, and 
makes it to breakfast four minutes late. 

Exam time finds students attempting to follow "the 
sequestered vale" of life, for they retire to unheard of cubby- 
holes. Davers, who is cleaning up at five o'clock every morn- 
ing, found some ingenious lad sleeping in the darkroom! 
June approaches, so I leave you in peace with this warning, 
find your hideaway soon ! 




"Ring" or "Groan" — I can't decide which best describes 
the morning dorm. Noises at 7.00 a.m. The first noise comes 
from the hall; the latter noise from our living quarters. 
Of course, it's vice versa when one is reporting to a prefect. 
The ring of the alarm is inside and the groan is outside 
when one receives orders to circumscribe the campus twice. 


"Hey, stupid, that was the fiver!" There is a mad rush 
first to the bathroom then to the door which will imfor- 
tunately let only one person through at a time. "You can 
call me Bannister — I made it with ten seconds to spare." 

After breakfast, during which we have time to recu- 
perate from our earlier experiences, we arrive back in the 
dorm to find our beds strewn all over the place. After 
throwing on a few blankets and smoothing the top down 
we hastily clean up crumbs, broken pop-bottles, and other 
assorted junk. We get this finished just as a prefect enters, 
trying to find a feasible excuse for getting us up the next 
morning. Luckily, we are one step ahead of him, and he 
has to find his victims in another dorm. 

Now, silence for ten minutes — everybody's doing last 
minute study until the fiver when we all rush to class to 
get a back-row seat. 

So life goes on in the dormitory. Our worst enemy is 
the school bell and our best friend our bed although few 
ever seem to realize this fact. 

After evening chapel, the dorm is generally a modified 
madhouse — more beds are dumped and fights are not uncom- 
mon. Excuse me if I'm tipping off the authorities. 

Following that drawn-out two hours known as study 
we either clamber or crawl into bed depending on the day 
we have just finished. If we are in a clambering mood, we 
are commonly known as a house officer's nightmare. The 
poor fellow will probably have to use strong-arm methods 
in this case and even then we often prove to be a problem 
as regards shutting up after lights-out. 

Things have now quieted down. But no! There goes 
someone snoring again. Well, I'll use my pillow to plug 
my ears. Cough! Choke! This is no good — I'm suffocating 
myself. Oh, yes — I have to get up tomorrow. Finally, con- 
ditions are suitable for getting some shut-eye. 

Rrringg! There's my alarm. I get up and dress and 
am downstairs in no time. I reach the hall and the clock 
says five o'clock. That's not right so I take another look. 



But yes, it is right. I'm two hours early. Back to bed to 
try and rest. 

"Hey, stupid, there's the fiver. By the way, weren't 
you supposed to report at seven o'clock?" 

Groan! Here we go again. 


As soon as Henry Bilow was seated, he experienced 
his first qualms of guilt. Could this really be he, attending 
a movie in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon? Never 
before in the eighteen years he had worked for the Perkins 
Leather Goods Company had he indulged himself in such 
a way. 

Slowly as his eyes adjusted to the silhouettes of the 
theatre, he began to feel more confident. The darkness 
obscured the outlines of any objects about him and such 
anonymity had a lulling effect on his senses. He had arrived 
just as the newsreel was starting. Henry lifted his sample 
case onto the seat beside him and settled back to enjoy the 
glimpses of life that flashed before him. This was going 
to be a delightful afternoon. 

The newsreel passed quickly into a sports-short, into 
a Bugs Bunny cartoon, and finally into darkness. Henry 
turned one leg over the other and waited for the feature 
picture. The theatre remained dark for several more 


moments and Henry became conscious of low disapproving 
sounds that gradually swept through the audience. 

Finally the stage lights brightened and a small bald- 
headed man came onto the stage and stepped into the light. 
He appeared awkward and nervous and Henry immediately 
cast him as a old-time comedian who would lead the audience 
in college songs. The small man fumbled with the micro- 
phone momentarily and then began speaking. "Ladies and 
Gentlemen, your attention, please," he said. "Something 
very unusual has happened and we must have your com- 
plete co-operation. In a few minutes our ushers will pass 
up the aisles searching for an important envelope which 
has been lost." The ushers hurriedly searched the theatre, 
but without result. Going once more to the microphone, 
the manager said, "Are you positive that there isn't a 
envelope under your seat?" Immediately everybody looked 
under his seat but no one found anything. Meanwhile Henry 
remained unimpressed by this and had not bothered to 
search. The little man on the stage told the audience that 
the reason for all this fuss was that a bank robber had 
held up a local bank several days before and had since been 
caught. When questioned, he confessed and said that he 
had hid the money under one of the seats in this particular 
theatre. However, since nothing had been discovered, the 
man said they would inform the Florida police, and have 
them question the robber further. He apologized, left the 
stage, and in a few minutes the main feature started. 

Henry leant back in his seat, and thought how in- 
credibly odd all this was. He could not seem to concentrate 
on the main feature, although, surely, this was only foolish- 
ness. Okay, just feel the next seat. No, watch the picture. 
Do it slowly so no one will see you. That's it, slow. No harm 
done. There I told you. Nothing. Go back to the picture. 
There was still the seat under him. No. no, no, he was 
behaving like an adolescent idiot. No, I promise not to ask 
again. Look once and I will go away for good. That's it. 
Run your hand underneath all the way. There, I told you, 


nothing. Are you sure, yes, I can feel the bulge in the en- 
velope. Rip it off the seat. Got it? Now call an usher. No, 
into your pocket you fool, think about it first. There's 
always time for an ushed. Think about it— $25,000, $25,000. 

Henry leant back into the seat trembling. What should 
he do? Slowly he looked all around him, and suddenly on 
an impulse he left the theatre. He reached home panting. 
He hadn't been followed! The first thing he did then was 
to ring up his boss and insult him. Then he closed all the 
shutters and pulled the blinds. Then he twisted the naked 
light bulb on, and, breaking the seal on his $25,000 dream, 
he opened the letter. 

The first thing he saw was stage money, lettered "Bank 
of Fantasy" in light orange and blue colours. He shuffled 
through the bogus bills rapidly seeking the real $25,000. 
The stage money fell through his hands twisting and turn- 
ing orange and green. His eyes could hardly focus when 
he saw the envelope again. He tore it open and saw the 
letter: it was meant to be very amusing. 
Dear Patron, 

We know the weakness of human flesh and we forgive 
your impetuous action. As you see, your seat was the one 
chosen to help promote the picture "Fugitive" which comes 
to this theatre next week. As a special prize for finding 
the envelope, present this letter to the Box Office and we 
will give you two tickets for the opening night performance. 
Thanks again for being such a good sport and sorry this 
wasn't the real McCoy. 

The Management. 

—J. D. Barry, IV A. 


Through the hallway, down the stair 
Into the dungeon quick as a hare 
Fit the stolen key in the lock 
"Quickly, Jacob, and please don't talk." 


The hinges creaked on the dungeon door 
A fellow stumbled on the slippery floor 
Their bright eyes sought in vain for the hole 
Where a brave man lay with a sickened soul. 

A groan from the corner gave them a start 
Encoiu-agement followed to give the man heart 
An arm round each shoulder, a chuck on the chin 
And then they were gone, gone mid the din.

Modern man has become the slave of fear. Everywhere 
he turns it is breathing down his neck. This is mainly 
because each morning when the average person of our day 
and age climbs out of bed, he is always capable of finding 
something to be afraid of. The direct result is that he be- 
comes a worrier. 

He arranges his time each day in order to have one 
to two hours to worry about his old age, or the possibility 
of something going wrong either with his car or family. 
At fifteen minute intervals, he worries about being late, 
getting lost, the outcome of a test he has been put to, or 
missing a plane or boat. In fact, on an average, the worrier 
finds little time to enjoy life. 

Supposing you are in the middle of a highway with no 
gas station for ten miles and your gas is low. As a normal 
human being, what are you destined to do? Naturally you 
will attack your fingernails vigorously, check the gauge 
fifty to one hundred times, cross your fingers and probably 
slow down to thirty. A few minutes later when the car 
has ceased to function, a pair of hands without any finger- 
nails will slowly turn the door-handle, and a mental and 
physical wreck will emerge. If you have the energy left to 
walk to the station for gas, you won't be able to walk back. 

Most performers think it natural to get "butterflies" 
before their show. Musicians wear long hair in an attempt 



to hide themselves when they see fit to worry. However, 
public speakers and debaters who are afraid of their 
audience become subjected to the worst treatment. Their 
audience never fails to pick them out and place them on a 
pedestal of ridicule. I suppose it is only natural, however, 
to laugh at a speaker who stutters, stammers, pauses, 
changes violently from white to red, and finally faints be- 
fore he has said a word. Strange things indeed happen to 

Scholars find it absolutely necessary to worry about 
passing "that last exam." They know for certain that there 
isn't anything more useful to do until they receive their 
marks. It remains unknown why these brilliant "learners" 
don't realise a basic fundamental; namely, that it is im- 
possible to avert or change fate, simply because fate always 
gets its way. 

There are many more examples of men that are 
unanimously in favour of wasting away their lives. Unfor- 
tunately, you may happen to fall into this category too. 
However, I won't advise you to try to stop worrying be- 
cause then you would worry whether you were still worry- 
ing and I would worry whether you were worrying about 
worrying. The only way, therefore, to prevent man from 
worrying is to remove all sources of fear. As this, obviously, 
is impossible, it remains only to be said that it is human 
to worry.

The winter months at Trinity are more active than one 
would think, with five major sports being carried on every 
day of the week. As usual, every boy in the School is taking 
part in at least one sport. Hockey, as in any Canadian 
school, is still the major sport, although this year there 
seems to be an increasing number of basketball players 
and likewise swimmers. The hockey firsts again under the 
excellent coaching of Mr. Humble and the captainship of 
Terry Hall and vice-captain Dave Cape hold a good record, 
having been runners-up in the Lawrenceville Tournament 
and sharing the Prep School Group Championship with Upper 
Canada. The spirit and determination on this team is 
fabulous. Middleside, again with Mr. Lawson, have a 4-2 
won-lost record so far with a few more games yet to play. 
Co-captains Greg McKnight and John Embury have had to 
lead their team through some pretty rough battles but have 
done very well. Littleside, under Mr. Gordon and captained 
by John Braden, now hold a 2-3 record having lost three 


and won two. They are out to win the rest with improving 
stamina and co-ordination. 

This year's Basketball firsts are among the better 
Basketball teams we have had for quite a while, but seem 
to have been up against better-than-usual competition. The 
team this year is coached by Mr. Heard and he along with 
captain Rusty Dunbar and vice-captain Bart Tisdale have 
kept their opponents moving fast throughout the entire 
season. The juniors this year, also coached by Mr. Heard 
and led by Ian Falkner, are likewise a bit above par and 
have developed some dead-eyed sharpshooters for next 
year's seniors. 

The enthusiasm in the swimming pool is really tre- 
mendous this year. Enough boys have turned out to make 
up three complete teams: senior, junior and bantam. Mr. 
Hodgetts again is seen coaching the seniors who are cap- 
tained by Bill Porritt. Mr. Massey is taking the juniors 
and bantams. Since the writing of this editorial, The senior 
team has completed its schedule of meets undefeated, add- 
ing to its triumphs the winning of the Little Big Four Cham- 
pionship. Congratulations to all concerned! 

Mr. Landry has again produced another good squash 
team with Tom Allen as the captain. 

Hugh Ellis and Ramsay Derry were voted captain and 
vice-captain respectively of the gym team this year, again 
imder the expert guidance of Mr. Armstrong. They have 
had only one meet so far and in this they emerged victorious. 

Rabbit league hockey is well underway this year being 
very well organized by Mr. Brown. 



At last — December 19. This date marked not only the 
end of term but also the occasion on which the hockey team 
embarked on a trip to Princeton for the ninth Annual 
Lawrenceville School Invitation Hockey Tournament, this 
being the third time T.C.S. has been represented. It is 


indeed an honour when one considers that Trinity has been 
the only Canadian school ever invited to the tournament. 
On both visits preceding this most recent venture Trinity 
captured the championship. 

The Seymour Hotel, New York, was invaded by the 
"northern visitors" arriving by plane from the so-called land 
of snow, as we were soon to learn. 

The following day we moved on to Princeton and took 
up our abode in the Campus Club, one of the many eating 
clubs along Prospect Ave. Afternoon, — and the first games 
got underway at Princeton's Hobart Baker Memorial Rink 
and the Lawrenceville school rink. 

Trinity, dressed in borrowed helmets (regulation equip- 
ment) took the ice at 4.00 p.m. with a well known Organism 
in goal to meet the Choate team. The team was at first 
hindered by a large number of penalties. American rulings 
provide for less bodily contact than in the Canadian game. 

Nevertheless, Trinity's first goal was scored with Shier 
in the penalty box. Hall took the puck from his own end, 
pushed it through the opposing defense and scored from 
close in. Choate was quick to retaliate, their scored being 
gained by Knight (of Choate, that is), assisted by Dwinell. 
The period ended in a 1-1 deadlock, and both teams, in 
despair for lack of new boys, scraped the ice. 

Early in the second period. Shier, on defence, scored 
an imassisted goal on a well placed shot from inside the 
blue line. The pressure was poured on and Hyland soon pick- 
ed up a rebound on a shot by Binnie to make it 3-1. At this 
point the excellent penalty killing work of Cape, Stephen- 
son, Shier and Binnie made a real impression upon the sup- 
porters during the absence of Adam and Scott in turn from 
the ice. Despite this foursome Choate managed their second 
goal. Terry Hall of Trinity followed this up on a successful 
shot, credit for the assist going to David Knight. 

The third period marked the completion of a hat trick 
for Terry Hall on a tally from Brit. Mockridge. Dave Cape 
then scored from Stu Adam. The period ended with a 
Choate goal by Stetson making the final score 6-3. The 


evening's entertainment consisted of a banquet at the 
Nassau Tavern, provided by the sponsoring committee of 
the tournament. 

The next morning several boys made a tour of Prince- 
ton and Lawrenceville school. I will not attempt to describe 
the mass amazement occasioned by the first view of 
Lawrenceville's million and a half dollar field house. 

That afternoon Trinity met Taft School in the semi- 
final. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of this game 
was the fore-checking and back-checking of Trinity which 
kept Taft in their own end for most of the game. Trinity's 
superior ability permitted them to change the direction 
very quickly. Of particular merit was the two-way work of 
Don Farnsworth who proved to be exceptionally light on his 
skates. First period scoring began with a super shot by Jim 
Hyland which gave the goalie no chance whatever. Ripley 
of Taft fooled Thompson in the goal and once again Trinity 
was in a first period deadlock. 

The Hall-Hyland-Knight combination clicked once again. 
This time Hyland put the puck in the net after taking a 
pass from Hall. An amazing bit of teamwork followed this 
as Dick Smith scored from Dave Marett. Again the same 
play worked just as smoothly, but the goal was disallowed. 
Continuing the drive, the next line scored on a Cape-Stephen- 
son combination, the latter making the point. Hyland now 
completed his hat trick with an unassisted goal. Taft com- 
pleted the scoring on a shot by Hartley while Mockridge 
was in the box for tripping. Trinity had overcome the 
penalty jinx for misdemeanors produced six penalties for 
Taft compared with three for Trinity. With a 6-3 and 
5-2 victory behind their backs anticipation rose high for 
the final game. 

Game time 2.30 p.m. — Trinity vs. St. Paul's School, 
rated as America's best in prep school hockey. The game 
proved to be a tight battle, hard fought throughout. St. 
Paul's were first to score capitalizing on organization plus 
in a form which brought the play right in on goal. Around 
the Trinity goal the opposition frequently met with dif-

ficulties in the form of Al Shier who effectively bothered 
all attackers. 

During the second period St. Paul's began to tire and 
Trinity controlled most of the play but they were unable 
to score. For the first five minutes of the period St. Paul's 
had two major penalties but, of course, they were at full 
strength on the ice. Captain John Pearce of St. Paul's, in 
goal, saved the day for his squad on countless occasions. 
The defence played close to their own goal and forced the 
T.C.S. offenders to shoot from a good distance out. A good 
many of the shots were high and two were seen to careen 
off the goal post. Shier went to the penalty box for the 
third time but came back to play all the harder. 

At 8.10 of the third period Bishop counted for St. Paul's 
on a Wilmerding pass. Trinity countered at 11.22 as Hall 
batted a loose puck past the previously unbeatable St. Paul's 
goaltender. Hyland and Knight assisted on the score. The 
pressure was applied to its fullest in the fijial minutes of 
play but St. Paul's maintained their stand to win by a 2-1 
margin taking the championship for the second year in a 
row. Congratulations of the day went to John Pearce of 
St. Paul's for his outstanding work in the goal.

Saturday, December 3. Won 5-8 

On Saturday, December 3, Bigside played host to the 
Old Boys, who came to play their annual hockey game 
against the team. It proved to be a very exciting afternoon 
of hockey. 

The first period was a seesaw battle with neither team 
really controlling the puck for any length of time. How- 
ever, Bigside managed to capitalize on two of their chances. 
Captain Hall opened the scoring, as Hyland and Knight 
combined to set him up for a close in drive which left Hardy, 
the Old Boy goalie no chance at all. The second tally of 
the period came off the stick of Adam, as he scored un- 
assisted on a screen shot. 

The second period saw Bigside add to their lead, as 
David Cape took a pass from Wood and beat the Old Boy 
goalie with a very nice shot. However, the opposition then 
started a determined drive, as Giffen slapped in Donald's 
pass for their first tally. 

This upsurge continued on into the final period, as Osier 
and Seagram each added a goal to tie the score at 3-3. Big- 
side then caught fire, and retaliated very quickly as they 
overpowered the Old Boy team for the remainder of the 
period. Farnsworth put the team in front to stay as he 
took a goal-mouth pass from Marett and knocked it in. Dick 
Smith then closed out the scoring in the game as he inter- 
cepted a pass, tore in alone on Hardy and neatly tucked 
the puck into the cage, making the final score 5-3 in favour 
of the School. Thompson played well in goal for Bigside 
as he continually halted Old Boy drives with his fine net- 

At T.C.S., January 12. Lost 8-3 

In their first home game of the season the School lost 
to the Zeta Psi Fraternity, 8-3, in a hard fought, close 
checking game. 


The first period opened with a bang as Adam scored 
on a rush from the face off. Wood assisted. At the ten 
minute mark the Zetes tied the score at 1-1 when Wiltson 
took a long shot from the blue line, Saunderson assisting. 
Minutes later Mockridge kicked out a similar long shot but 
Redruft got the rebound and scored. At the close of the 
period Eby scored to make it 3-1. 

In the second twenty minutes the Zetes opened the 
scoring with two quick goals by Eby and McMurtry. Time 
and again Dawson made spectacular stops in the Zete goal, 
but at the 14 minute mark Marett scored on a rebound 
from Farnworth and Shier. With a minute to go Graham 
got a penalty for tripping. The School put on the pressure 
but the Zete squad held together. This period was char- 
acteristic of the whole game, hard fought and hard checked 
as well as fast. The score at the end of this period was 5-2. 

The final period opened with Hyland getting a penalty 
for tripping. The Zetes took advantage of this as Saunder- 
son scored from Beck to make the score 6-2. However, 
Trinity finally scored at 9:06 Hyland from Knight. The 
game got rougher and three more penalties ensued, Gum- 
ming for boarding, McMurtry and Hall for roughing. With 
four minutes to go Eby scored unassisted to give him a 
hat-trick. In the last few seconds the Zetes scored again as 
Beck poked the rubber past Mockridge who had played 
a good game but was beaten by well-placed shots. 

The final score was T.G.S. 3, Zetes 8. 

At T.C.S., January 19. Lost 2-1 

In a hard fought, wide open game. Trinity lost to a 
team which included many T.G.S. Old Boys. The period 
showed Alpha Delta was the stronger team, but mainly 
due to the wonderful goal-tending of Garth Thompson, the 
visitors failed to score. 

The second period promised to be much the same at 
first, until Johnson, a T.G.S. Old Boy, poked the puck in 


during a pile-up in front of the net. Four minutes later 
Anderson scored to put Alpha Delta in the lead 2-0. In the 
dying minutes of the period, Binnie of T.C.S. got the first 
penalty, two minutes for tripping. 

In the final period Trinity showed much more spark. 
In spite of Shier's penalty for tripping, the Trinity team 
kept the edge, and as soon as they were back to full strength, 
Stevenson scored from Farnsworth to break Alpha Delta's 
shut-out. In spite of continued efforts Trinity failed to find 
the mark again and the final score remained 2-1. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At Port Hope, Jamiary 26. Won 2-1 

Although the team had recently experienced two losses 
in exhibition games, Trinity capitalized on their experience 
to defeat a strong opponent. As the game got under way 
it was soon apparent that T.C.S, had a slight edge on the 
play. After the first five minutes, however, play slackened 
until at the twelve-minute mark, a cleaving shot from the 
corner by Hall of St. Andrew's was deflected off a defence- 
man's skate into the goal. This gave S.A.C. a one goal lead. 
Trinity quickly retaliated, however, and four minutes later 
on a brilliant passing play. Cape scored from Adam. The 
team successfully withstood repeated attacks by S.A.C. while 
Shier sat out with a kneeing penalty. The first period ended 
in a 1-1 tie. 

The second period saw Trinity dominating the play, 
but no goal was scored. There was a double high-sticking 
penalty given out to Hall and Loblaw late in the period. 
The pace quickened in the closing moments and both goalies 
managed some good saves. 

There was a different story in the first few minutes 
of the last period, and Trinity twice almost put themselves 
in front before Marett finally scored from Adam to climax 
a strong drive. 

With a goal in hand, Trinity defended their position 
vigorously and had several chances to score. However, St. 


Andrew's held under our attacks and nearly tied the score 
in the dying moments of the game. The final score proved 
to be 2-1 in favour of Trinity. 

T.C.S. vs U.C.C. 
At U.C.C, February 2. Lost 3-0 

A fast, smart Upper Canada team skated their way 
to a decisive victory, when they defeated the Trinity squad 

The T.C.S. players were astonished at the fast ice at 
the opening of the game, but soon got used to it and made 
the first attack of the game which was terminated by the 
fine goal tending of Bassett in the U.C.C. net. Then at the 
nine minute mark Soward opened the scoring unassisted 
with a hard shot from the corner. T.C.S. then rallied but 
found it nearly impossible to penetrate the powerful Upper 
Canada defence. 

Without a rest at the end of the period the teams 
changed ends and began the second stanza. U.C.C. opened 
with a series of blasts at the Trinity net but the miraculous 
work in goal of Thompson kept the puck from the mesh. 
The first ten minutes consisted of rally after rally by each 
team; then at 10.15 Upper Canada took advantage of a 
T.C.S. penalty as Captain Harrison scored from Eaton and 
Ross. The period ended in a flurry of shots on the U.C.C. 
goal by Hall and Adam which failed to get by Bassett. At 
18.02 Eric Stephenson was helped off the ice with a gash 
over his eye. 

After a short rest the Trinity six returned to the ice 
but failed to capitalize on numerous chances as U.C.C. had 
at least one man in the penalty box for nearly the whole 
period. Then at 11.13 came a break when U.C.C. had two 
players serving terms. But the fabulous penalty killing of 
Johnson and Barber held off the goal we needed so badly. 
Before the end of the period we had seven more shots on 
goal but failed to score. At 19.10 Johnson and Soward 
widened the margin with another tally. In spite of a total 


of 15 penalties the game was fast and well played by both 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, February 9. Won 6-1 

Trinity played host to U.T.S. , and emerged the decisive 
victors, winning 6-1. In the first period Hall's lone goal 
gave Trinity a slight edge but during the next twenty min- 
utes Bigside caught fire and Hall tallied four times assisted 
by Hyland and Knight on two and unassisted on the others. 
U.T.S. managed to salvage one goal when Saunderson fooled 
Thompson on a close in drive. The assist was credited to 

However, the Bigside barrage was not over as Cape 
and Adam scored a goal each in the final period. Cape 
scored first from Adam, and Adam scored late in the period 
from Wood. Final score: Trinity 6, U.T.S. 1. 

At Newmarket, February 13. Won 6-4 

In the first period, both teams played a hard game and 
appeared to be in all respects evenly matched. In the first 
six minutes, Wood scored for Trinity. Pickering retaliated, 
however, when Allen scored shortly afterwards. Hyland and 
Adam took the initiative and after about 12 minutes of play 
brought the score to 3-1 for Trinity. Again, at 15 minutes. 
Smith scored for T.C.S. from Farnsworth. In the remaining 
few minutes of the first period, Pickering partially recovered 
by scoring two more goals, bringing the score to 4-3, leaving 
Trinity still in the lead. 

The second period was only 15 minutes in length and 
both teams settled down to a hard struggle. Mockridge 
received a two-minute penalty for checking at three minutes. 
The only goal scored was by Stevenson of T.C.S. 11 minutes 
after the start of the period. At 14.10, Hall received a 
second penalty for elbowing. Thus the score at the end 


of the second period put Trinity ahead with a score of 5-3. 
The third period opened with Pickering scoring in the 
first two minutes. At 12.50, Hall finally broke through and 
scored. This was the last goal of the game, Trinity winning 
with a score of 6-4. Goals by Pickering were scored by 
Allen who got two, Mills, and Muntz. The game was well- 
played in a sportsmanlike fashion. 

At T.C.S., February 16. Tied 3-3 

Against the Kappa Alpha Fraternity — Trinity played to 
a 3-3 tie. The first period proved to be fast but very dis- 
organized. Neither team seemed able to start a passing 
attack. At eight minutes David Knight got a penalty for 
tripping. Kappa Alpha put the pressure on but the defenders 
succeeded in holding them at bay. 

In the second period a long shot from the blue line 
by Binnie scored at 58 seconds to put Trinity ahead 1-0. 
Cape assisted. Kappa Alpha soon retaliated, however, as 
Cumberland scored from the corner. Two minutes later, 
Scott scored unassisted at 3.30 thus putting the K.A.'s ahead 
2-1. Wood tied up the score shortly after, with Cape assist- 
ing. With Mockridge ii off the ice for tripping, a break- 
away gave Farnsworth a chance to put T.C.S. ahead 3-2. 

The third period witnessed the return of the lack of 
unity experienced during the first period. Wansborough 
scored at 10.10 to tie the game with a score of 3-3. During 
the last few minutes of the game. Trinity once more applied 
pressure but were unable to score, leaving the final score 
at 3-3. 

At Aurora, March 3. Won 8-3 

In their return game at St. Andrew's, our Bigside team 
upset the Saints in a very fast game, 8-3. While the Saints 
played a hard, aggressive game, by the third period they 


were outclassed by the spectacular passing and checking 
of the T.C.S. players. 

The first period held very little scoring, ending with 
a 1-0 lead for S.A.C. accounted for by a goal by Halliday 
from Loblaw. 

At 3.40 in the second, T.C.S. began to roll with Hyland 
scoring from Hall. With both teams fighting to break the 
tie, Hyland again shot true with his second, which was 
assisted by Binnie and Mockridge. When the horn sounded 
to end the stanza, the scoreboard read 2-1 for Trinity. 

In the third, T.C.S. again cut loose, but this time for 
good as Hyland again scored from Hall at 20 seconds. This 
was followed by Adam scoring on a pass from Shier and 
Wood. St. Andrew's then showed some spark with Halliday 
scoring unassisted. Hall then retaliated scoring unassisted 
at 7.40. By 10.00, T.C.S. had scored twice again, Knight 
from Hyland from Hall, and Adam from Wood and Shier. 
At 13.30 S.A.C. scored again, Dobbin from Halliday, but 
couldn't reach the tape in time as Hyland again scored with 
Hall getting the honours, and the horn sounded to leave 
an 8-3 score for Trinity. 


At Weston, Wednesday, March 6, 1957. Won 7-5 

On Wednesday, March 6, T.C.S. Bigside defeated the 
Ridley Tigers 7-5, and in so doing, advanced themselves one 
more game towards the Little Big Four Championship. The 
game was a real battle all the way. 

The first period went well for the men of Trinity, as 
two of their stalwart defensemen, namely Al Shier and Tim 
Kennish, each notched a goal. The brand of hockey in this 
period was fast and rugged, organization being the key 
factor in oiu* favour. 

However, from the opening whistle of the second period 
Ridley dominated the play. Time after time, their forward 
lines cut through our defense; despite many good saves 
in the Trinity net, Ridley was still able to amass a 4-2 


lead. Jewell and Hardy each tallied once while Poole notched 
a further two goals. Trinity made a determined rally as 
the period closed but were unable to score. 

As Trinity took the ice for the last period, their strong 
ekating began to pay dividends. In succession, Jim Hyland, 
Eric Stephenson, Terry Hall, Bob Wood and Dick Smith 
culminated a series of Trinity rushes, beating the Ridley 
goalkeeper to bring the score to 7-4 in their favour. Before 
the end of the period, Jewell slipped the puck past Thomp- 
son to finish out the scoring. 

BiosroE vs. u.o.a 

At T.C.S., March 10. Lost 7-6 

In a game marked by one of the most exciting third 
periods seen on T.C.S. ice. Upper Canada College and Trinity 
College School played off to determine who would be the 
Group Champions in hockey. In any case, T.C.S. could not 
lose. If they won, they would be the sole champions, and 
if they lost, they would share the championship. 

As the first period commenced, both teams fought hard 
for leadership. Eaton for U.C.C. scored to give them the 
lead and soon after Soward scored to make it 2-0 for U.C.C. 
Trinity just couldn't seem to break U.C.C.'s defence which 
was very effective. 

The second period proved to be even more exasperating 
for T.C.S. Way scored a goal for U.C.C. and was followed 
by Barber and Schley who also scored to make it 5-0. Though 
T.C.S. had numerous shots on goal, it seemed that there was 
an invisible wall in front of Upper Canada's net. 

With the opening of the third period, T.C.S. broke their 
spell and scored three goals in quick succession. Wood, Hall, 
and Hyland are to be thanked for the feat which brought 
the score to 5-3. U.C.C. momentarily recovered when Con- 
acher scored a goal. Then T.C.S. renewed their pressure 
and fast plays around the U.C.C. net accounted for three 
more quick goals. Cape scoring two and Knight scoring 
one thus brought the score to 6-6 with about two minutes 


left in the game. Excitement among the spectators was 
now at fever pitch. In the last minute of play, Harrison of 
U.C.C. broke through to score on a pass from Soward. With 
less than 30 seconds to go, T.C.S. removed the goalkeeper, 
trying for the equalizer but good work by Bassett held 
them off. Thus U.C.C. and T.C.S. share a dual champion- 
ship for the 1956-57 season.

The Middleside Hockey team has had one of its 
more successful seasons. We rallied and beat Lakefield 
3-1, after losing our first game of the season to them 
4-2. Captained by John Embury and Greg McKnight and 
with Joe Perkins as Vice-Captain, it has developed into a 
winning team. We have won five of our seven games and 
our goals have been triggered mainly by Embury (10), 
Carsley (9) and Hodgetts (7). Due to the able coaching of 
Mr. Lawson, we have developed our team-work. This may 
be attributed to many drills and much hard work by every- 
one. Our defence has played splendidly in most games, with 
McKnight, Cunningham and Cundill valiantly facing any 
foe who ventures toward our goal. In goal we have David 
Crowe who has saved many goals and games for us. The 
team this year has many younger players who are being 
developed through practise with good competition. This 


should become a source for future Bigside players. Prob- 
ably our two best games were the U.C.C. game, in which 
we won 10-4 against a much bigger and more experienced 
team, and the Port Hope Juvenile game, which we lost 7-4, 
but in which we had a much better opponent. It was only 
through a hard-skating effort as a team that we did so well. 
So far we have had a successful season with no injuries.

Littleside is a spirited team coached again this year by 
Mr. Gordon. The team is made up of both New Boys and 
members of last year's Rabbit League. There has been much 
improvement since the first game, particularly on defence. 
Good examples of scoring plays were seen in the Lakefield 
game at T.C.S. Two rushes by a Hancock-West combina- 
tion produced identical goals. The closest game so far was 
the 3-2 loss to the Peterborough All-Star Bantams. These 
boys were light but skated fast and played good positional

T.O.S. vs. ZETES 
Saturday, January 12. Lost 67-49 

On their debut the first team showed signs of erratic 
shooting and came out on the short end of a 67-49 count. The 
Zetes' superior strength was noticeable when they came 


from behind after a first period deficit to take a commanding 
lead which T.C.S. failed to overcome. The second period 
proved disastrous for the locals as they could only hit for 
six points while the stronger Zete squad was powering its 
way to a comfortable lead. The Trinity cagers drove back 
hard in the third and fourth periods but it was too late, 
they had relinquished too many points in the decisive sec- 
ond period. The Zete's shooting was the major factor for 
their win in that they counted on 52% of their shots while 
T.C.S. left much to be desired with a 31% average on both 
field goal attempts and fouls. Trimble and Ash were the 
high scorers in the game hitting for 21 points apiece. 
Dunbar and Tisdale paced the Trinity attack with 14 points 

At Cobourg, January 16. Won 39-29 

In game number two of the season the Trinity basket- 
bailers took the Cobourg High School team 39-29. The School 
had a decided advantage at the end of the half with a 
decisive 20-6 lead. 

Then Cobourg in the second half with fast player sub- 
stitution tried to tire the Trinity five, but the leather stayed 
with the maroon and black while they netted 19 more points 
to Cobourg's 14. Procter for Trinity took the high point lead 
with 13 points. Tisdale with 10 and Dunbar with 7 were 
close behind. 

This game showed that the team has great prospects 
and should have a very successful season. 

In a return game with the High School, Trinity again 
won 50-42. 


January 19 

On Saturday, January 19, our senior Basketball team 
played a very exciting game with Alpha Delta Phi of the 


University of Toronto. The Alpha Delts maintained a shght 
edge over T.C.S., succeeding in keeping a few baskets ahead 
throughout the game. In the last quarter, however, T.C.S. 
changed to a zone defence in which they rapidly gained in 
score. As a result, the score was tied at the end of the 
game and overtime was played. Here the Alpha Belt's 
showed their superiority, however, and won the game 43- 
38. It is very hard to pick the outstanding player because 
on both sides there was exceptional teamwork. Both teams, 
however, seemed to be in agreement that Larry Joynt for 
the A.D.'s was outstanding. All in all, this was a game of 
outstanding teamwork and sportsmanship, both teams 
playing marvellous ball. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

Saturday, January 26. Won 75-57 

Our T.C.S. seniors played a very strong game against 
the Saints right from the opening toss-up. At the end of 
the first quarter, the score favoured Trinity 16-10. A total 
of 27 points was added to the scoreboard during the second 
quarter, bringing the score to 32-21 in favour of T.C.S. at 
the half. Dunbar and Tisdale sparked in the third quarter 
to boost Trinity to a 18-point lead, 55-37. A display of power 
in the last quarter by the Maroon and Blacks netted them 
20 points to the visitors' 13. The fmal score: T.C.S.— 75,S.A. 
C— 57. 

Scoring was as follows: Dunbar-28, Proctor-19, Per- 
rin-12, Tisdale-11, Hart-15. 

T.C.S. vs. L.P.C.I. SENIORS 

Friday, February 1. Lost 74-56 

On what might have been called an athletic night our 
senior basketball team lost to Lawrence Park in a game 
which could have gone to either team right up until the 
last couple of minutes. 


At the end of the first quarter the score stood at 14- 
7 in favour of L.P.C.I. During the second quarter, our scor- 
ing kept us within eight points of the Lawrence Park team, 
the score being 34-26. In the third quarter, Baker and Bar- 
rett of Lawrence Park took over putting Lawrence well 
ahead. During the last quarter it became apparent that 
we had tired our opponents considerably, for a series of skil- 
ful fast plays narrowed the point margin to within six 
points. The L.P.C.I. team quickly recovered, however, to 
once again widen the margin. As the final horn sounded 
the score was 74-56 in favour of Lawrence Park. The game 
was well played and one of the best of the season. 

The high scorers were: Baker (L.P.C.I.) — 17, Dunbar 
(T.C.S.)— 17, Perrin (T.C.S.)— 12, Barrett (L.P.C.L)— 10. 

T.C.S. vs. L.P.C.I. 

At Toronto, February 15. Lost 43-38 

In this return game with Lawrence Park the Trinity 
Seniors lost in a close see-saw game 43-38. 

At the first quarter horn L.P.C.I. led 8-5 but T.C.S. 
moved fast into position and by half time managed to hold 
a 18-18 tie with their opponents. Then in the third we stole 
a one point lead. But the determined L.P.C.I. netters took 
over in the fourth and racked up 17 points to give them 
a 43-38 victory. 

The high scorers were: Perrin (T.C.S.) — 13, Barrett 
(L.P.C.L)— 12, Proctor (T.C.S.)— 10, Anderson (L.P.C.I. 

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

At U.C.C, February 2. Lost 56-39 

The Trinity six took an unexpected walloping in the 
Upper Canada gym. It soon became apparent that U.C.C. 
had control of the long shots but that we were outscoring 
them up close. The first half was hot and fast and ended 
with T.C.S. down 10 points from the U.C.C. team, 31-21. 


In the third quarter, T.C.S. opened fast but was unable 
to out-shoot the blue and white. The U.C.C. sharp-shooters 
widened the point margin. In the fourth quarter, Trinity 
outscored its opponent but found it impossible to close the 
wide gap. 

T.C.S. scoring was as follows: Dunbar — 11, Perrin — 11, 
Tisdale — 8, Proctor — 6, Hart — 3. 


At S.A.C., March 2, 1957. Lost 82-69 

Ron Manning handled matters expertly as he scored 
43 points to lead the S.A.C. cagers to a decisive 82-69 vic- 
tory over the T.C.S. Seniors. The first quarter saw S.A.C. 
score 25 points, while Trinity managed only 13. In the 
second quarter, S.A.C. extended their lead to 20 points, and 
at half-time, S.A.C. led 45-25. In the second half, the T.C.S. 
squad revived for a short time, but could not come close 
to the S.A.C. five. At the end of the game, S.A.C. led 82- 

High scorers for S.A.C. were Manning with 43 points 
and Pickering with 16 points. 

High scorers for T.C.S. were Tisdale with 16 points, 
Dunbar with 14 points, and Perrin, also with 14 points. 




Friday, February 1 

On a Friday athletic night at T.C.S., the Lawrence Park 
teams out-swam the Junior and Bantam T.C.S. teams, though 
the Trinity Seniors took the laurels in their division. The 
overall score, however, showed who had the better swim- 
mers, with Lawrence Park swimming 102-72. The outstand- 
ing swimmers of the meet were Bob Fisher of LPCI and 
Bill Warner of T.C.S. 

The team looks good this year and we are glad to see 
Bill Porritt as captain for the '57 season.

Wednesday, February 6. Won 53-26 

The T.C.S. Senior swimming team brightened their 
hopes for the Little Big Four meets by downing the Univer- 
sity of Toronto Intermediates in the Hart House Pool by 
the decisive score of 53-26. Trinity led the way from the 
word "Go!" winning seven out of nine events against a 
much older and more experienced team which included 
several T.C.S. Old Boys. 

The diving was exceptionally good, T.C.S. winning first 
and second places. Newland placed second to Southern be- 
cause of a couple of unfortunate "experimental" dives. 

The Trinity Free-Style Relay team was greatly out- 
paced by the "Blues" exhibition record-breaking relay team 
but still won the event.

At T.O.S., Saturday, March 2. Won 91-27 

This was the first meet which both the Seniors and Jun- 
iors have won. The high score was due to the fact that our 
Seniors and Juniors were swimming against their Juniors 
and Bantams respectively. Although it wasn't a true com- 
petition, it has given us more practice for the Little Big 

The Seniors won their division by a score of 53-11 
while the Jimiors defeated their opponents 38-16.

At Hart House, Saturday, March 16 

On Saturday, the T.C.S. swim team, captained by Bill 
Porritt, travelled to Toronto to take part in the Little Big 
Four annual swim meet, and emerged champions. As was 
expected the meet was a very closely fought fight between 
T.C.S. and Ridley, who finished a close second, with U.C.C. 
and St. Andrew's following. Out of the nine events Trinity 
swam off with six firsts, leaving Ridley three and the 
others winless. 

A full gallery saw records broken and set, as Bill 
Warner of T.C.S. took the 100 yard free style in a cool 1.4 
second under Larry Freeman's record of 57.9. Terry Guest 
of Ridley finished second in this race tying the record. The 
T.C.S. four man Medley Relay team set a record of 1:57.2. 
Rick Newland of T.C.S. stole a close first for the team in 
diving over Ken Powell of Ridley.

Unlike most years, enough boys have turned out for 
swimming this year to make up full Junior and Bantam 
teams. As coaching three teams would be too much for Mr. 
Hodgetts, Mr. Massey has come to his assistance by coach- 
ing the two younger teams. In the three meets the teams 
have had so far they have lost all of them, but with the 
exception of the junior Lawrence Park meet, they were all 
very close matches and always depended on the final relay 
to determine the victor. 

Under the expert training of Mr. Massey many of these 
boys have developed from dog paddlers to fairly fast crawl 
or back stroke swimmers, and others have risen to the 
point of being ready for next year's seniors. We wish them 
the best of luck in the meets to come. 





February 16, 1957 Won: 1883-1752

At Toronto, January 19. Lost 6-0 

The first Squash Team travelled to Toronto for the 
first match of the season on January 19th. Although the 
opposition proved itself to be overpowering, the experience 
gained will prove invaluable in future matches. The only 
match which might have gone either way right up until the 
end was that between T. Allen for T.C.S. and Peter Gordon 
(B. & R.). 

T.C.S. B. & R. 

F. Stephenson lost to John Foy 3-0 

R. Adair lost to Bert Winnett 3-0

P. Allen lost to B. Watson 3-0 



On Saturday, February 2, the Squash team journeyed 
to Buffalo to play Nichols. It was a wonderful trip for 
Bigside and they enjoyed the friendly hospitality. The 
Squash teams of both schools put on a very fine show of 
ability, and several games were very close. Trinity, however, 
won by taking five out of six games. 

Adair lost to Kelly 3-1 

T. Allen defeated Spitz Miller 3-1 

Stephenson defeated Simon 3-0 

English defeated McCarthy 3-0 

P. Allen defeated Trimble 3-2

Saturday, February 16 

The 17th annual T.C.S. Invitation Squash Tournament 
was held at the School on the weekend of February 16 and 
17. As usual, excellent squash was played by all who par- 
ticipated in the tournament. This year the winner was Don 
Leggatt of the Thistle Club in Hamilton, who defeated John 
Foy of the B & R Club in Toronto in the final match. This 
was a very exciting match. Leggatt came from behind 
twice to win out in the fifth game. In the first round, Foy 
defeated Allen, Drummond defeated English, Bentley de- 
feated McMurrich, Lafleur defeated Adair, Tafel defeated 
Weld, Walter defeated Black, Dancy defeated Landry, and 
Leggatt defeated Stephenson. 

In the second round, Foy defeated Drummond, Bentley 
defeated Lafleur, Walter defeated Tafel, and Leggatt de- 
feated Dancy. 

In the semi-final round, Foy defeated Bentley and Leg- 
gatt defeated Walter. 

In the final, Leggatt defeated Foy. 

A consolation tournament was held for those who were 
eliminated in the first round this year. Peter Landry won 


the consolation final, defeating Lennox Black of the Racquet 
Club and Tafel defeated Lafleur to win the quarter consola- 

In the final round of the consolation, Landry defeated 
English, McMurrich defeated Stephenson, Allen defeated 
Weld (by default) and Black defeated Adair. 

In the semi-final round, Landry defeated McMurrich 
and Black defeated Allen. 

In the final, Landry defeated Black.

Our Christmas Entertainment this year was probably 
the most successful one Boulden House has ever put on. It 
has set a high standard for future years to aim at! 

Many congratulations are due to all who took part in 
it and to Mr. Burns, Mr. Dennys and Mrs. Moore, who 
worked so hard to make it the success it was. The back- 
drop, designed and painted by Mrs. McGaw and her Art 
Classes, was undoubtedly one of the best we have seen. 

Hockey has been one of our main occupations this 
term. Every boy in the School has been playing either on 
the First Squad or on one of the Snipe League Teams. 

We did not have an opportunity of mentioning our 
Intra-Mural Soccer League in the last number. Every boy 
in the School plays in this League and it proved to be one 
of the most hotly contested leagues we have had for many 
years. The winner was in doubt until the very last game 
and the teams were so evenly matched that no less than 
thirty-two tied games were played. 

Once again we are taking a play to Upper Canada Col- 
lege Prep's Play Night on March 16th. We all look forward 
to this evening of one act plays and are extremely grate- 
ful to Upper Canada for all the trouble they take to organ- 
ize this evening so extremely well. 


This took the form of a pantomine called "A Fantasy 
With Oz", written by Mr. Burns. We shall long remember 
the scene in which the Scarecrow, the Woodman, and the 
Lion sing their solos, telling of the troubles they have in 
life. Dorothy's excellent performance and singing was also 
one of the highlights of the evening. 

The enthusiasm and skill of the entire cast made this 
a memorable event. 



After the traditional Christmas Supper on December 
18th, the boys of Boulden House staged their fourth annual 
pantomime, "A Fantasy With Oz" — based on the characters 
from Baum's well-known fable — scored a memorable "hit." 

The play opens with Dorothy (L. H. Murray) arriving 
in Munchkinland and meeting the White Witch (A. R. 
Moore). Her arrival is celebrated by a lively song and 
dance which reminds her of her native Kansas. Then she 
sets off on her hazardous journey to Oz, 

In Scenes 11 and HI, she meets the Scarecrow (N. F. J. 
Ketchimi), the Tin Woodman (C. J. Tottenham) and the 
Cowardly Lion (J. A. Burton). The four encounter further 
adventures with a forest of enchanted trees — including a 
Family Tree (M. B. Sullivan) and a trio who uproot them- 
selves for a soft-shoe dance. 

Scene IV introduces The Wicked Witch of the West 
(M. H. H. Bedford- Jones) and the mischievous Winkles but 
they are soon vanquished and the road to Oz is open. 

A magic broom provides the key to the Wizard's friend- 
ship. Dorothy's helpers are rewarded and to her delighted 
surprise, she discovers that the Wizard (J. M. Band) is a 
fellow Kansan. Together they leave the Magic City promising 
to return soon to see their friends. 

Musical highlights of the evening included two trios — 
the first listing the wistful hopes of the Tin Woodman, the 
Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion; the second — Over The 
Rainbow — done by Dorothy and her Two Guardians. And the 
Wizard's tuneful declaration that "Everything's Up To Date 
In Kansas City" was a tingling finale. 

The production involved, as in past years, nearly all 
the boys of Boulden House. A cast of forty-five — a stage 
crew of six. The construction group under the guidance of 
Mr. Burns and headed by E. W. Colby and J. C. Ketchum 
built the properties — the featured prop being a Wizard 
whose ears wagged — moustaches bristled — legs tapped — and 
eyes (one red, one blue) lit up! 


The pantomime was arranged and directed by J. D. 
Burns Musical arrangements and direction were done by Mr. 
Dennys. The colourful costumes were designed and made by 
Mrs. C. Moore. The splendid backdrop was painted by the 
Art Classes supervised by Mrs. T. D. McGaw. 

In all phases of its preparation great enthusiasm was 
shown for the Boulden House Pantomime. Its success was 
due to the hard work and co-operation of the cast and pro- 
duction staff. Its reward was the keen appreciation of the

Jutting out into the brilliant blue Mediterranean Sea 
on the southern coast of Spain is the taU, one thousand 
three hundred and fifty foot Rock of Gibraltar. Guarding 
the entrance to the Mediterranean, this towering fortress 
has proved more than valuable to England. Originally 
Spanish, the rock was captured by the British in 1704 and 
has been held since as an important stronghold. On ledges 
in the steep sides the British have placed countless guns 
which guard the harbour below. 

The whole area of less than two square miles is divided 
in half by the steep rock. In all there are three fishing vil- 
lages, the most important being Gibraltar, opposite from 
the Spanish town of La Linea. Between the two there is 
a frontier and a line of sentries. 

As there is little agriculture, most of the civilian popu- 
lation of mixed Spanish, British and Maltese are fisher- 
men. The Rock is populated by a species of apes found only 
on Gibraltar. It is claimed that when the monkeys leave 
the Rock, the British wiU have to forever vacate Gibraltar.

Every night I have the honour and pleasure of visiting 
what I think is one of the most beautiful spots at T.C.S. 
Our School Chapel, I am sure, will stand out in my mind 
for years after the solemn day when I leave Trinity Col- 
lege School. 

The Chapel is panelled in limed oak of a light brown 
colour. Above the magnificent altar, there are two fine 
stained glass windows, in which there is not a piece of glass 
the size of a doUar bill. On the altar itself, there is a silver 


cross and two silver candlesticks which are lighted every 
night by a senior boy. 

Being in the Choir, one thing I look forward to all 
week is chapel on Sunday. The procession and recession of 
the Choir, clad in their robes of blue and white, is truly 

I feel that the boys of T.C.S. are very lucky to have 
such a marvellous place in which to thank the Lord for 

His many blessings. —A. R. Moore, Form lA 


Part of a cloud of vapour 

It rises; cools, falls; 

Twisting, writhing, 

Diving, plunging. 

It lands on a leaf and rolls 

Onto the ground, down to the river, 

A rushing torrent of water. 

Placidly sitting in a sea 

With a bright sun shining down. 

Being warmed, evaporated, 

Rising up to form 

Part of a cloud of vapour 

That falls. 

A raindrop making a never-ending cycle. 

N. S. Dafoe, Form IIAl 


It's standing still upon the mountain. 

Though countless ages it has been thus, 

Though many legions have stormed its heights. 

The rugged grandeur remains for us 

To glimpse the glory of the ages 

When knights and kings upon the ledges 

Battled for the Parapet. 


It overlooks the mighty ocean, 
O'er miles of rocky, ragged, seashore, 
Past leagues of golden, briny sand, 
On which the Vikings land no more 
To fight great battles on the beach 
Against the dwellers who warred to keep 

The Parapet. — D. W. Corbett, Form IIAl 


Edwin L. Drake is called the Father of the Petroleum 
Industry. With a title like that, wouldn't you think he dril- 
led the first recorded oil well, or something of that nature? 

He didn't. All he did was manage the land. He asked 
a man by the name of William A. Smith to drill for oil for 
him as he was employed by the Seneca Oil Company. Smith 
discovered oil on August 27, 1859. 

Why isn't William A. Smith called the Father of the 
Petroleum Industry? He drilled the first oil well — so I think 
he should be called the Father of the Petroleum Industry 
because he started the boom of oil in 1859.

Gage's Creek starts from a small stream in the woods, 
on the Howards Farm in the Township of Hamilton. From 
here it flows twelve miles till it empties into Lake Ontario. 
Its course runs through pleasant fields where cattle and 
sheep are grazing. 

Every Sunday in the fall and spring, T.C.S. boys tramp 
to Gage's Creek to explore, catch eels or crayfish, to pick 
apples and climb trees. One can also ford the creek, build 
dams and bridges, or just skip stones over the water. 

Gage's Creek means a lot to T.C.S. It means that plea- 
sant walk every Sunday which will live with us for the rest 
of our lives. — S. E. Traviss, Form lA

Land of many themes; — 
From the white-walled city of Timis 
Where the sun on the water gleams, 
Through the torrid heat of the Central day 
To the evening calm of Table Bay, 

Your mountains and your grassy plains 

Have all seen the shed of blood, 
'Tis not the fault of any land — 

There's been no other way. 


Nature's favoured land; 
Your broad plains have been covered 
With gifts come from ffis hand, — 
The buck spread veldt that has been laid 
By Kilima N'jaro; in its shade, 

The endless stretches of the vast Sahara, 

The lush vegetation of the rain forests. 
All add wonder to your name, 

Wonder that will ever grow.

I lay down upon the light grey rock, worn smooth by 
the weather. About fifty yards to my right was a little 
waterfall. On both sides were high vertical cliffs of granite, 
stained with ore to flecks of deep orange. Some feet above, 
the rock curved off to smooth slopes. 

The water rushed through these horizontal sides and 
then cascaded to a quiet, azure pool fringed with wisps 
of grass poking up from between the rocks. Suddenly, the 
tail of a large fish broke the calm water, sending ripples 
across the clear surface. Overhead a slight breeze gently 
stirred the pine trees. A kingfisher winged its way along 


the stream in search of a careless minnow. As I gazed in 
awe at such a lovely sight, I thought of a waterfall not 
as just falling water, but as one of Nature's most beauti- 
ful creations.

Captain of Hockey J. M. Band 
Vice-Captain D, N. Hodgetts 
The hockey team enjoyed a successful season winning 
four games and losing two. The improvement in the stan- 
dard of play during the season was very noticeable. Dur- 
ing the season we scored 20 goals and had 12 goals scored 
on us. 


First Team Hockey Colours have been awarded to the

This is not intended to be more than a general summing 
up of the games since we feel that a full account of each 
game is seldom read. 

In our two games with Lakefield, we seemed to show 
better team work and were not really too hard-pressed al- 
though in our game at the Grove the score was very close 
due to our inability to find their net. 


We enjoyed a slight advantage in age, weight and ex- 
perience over a very game U.C.C. Prep team, who neverthe- 
less showed us some good hockey. 

The game with St. Andrew's was one of the best of 
the season with both teams evenly matched and plajdng 
good hockey. We got off to a very shaky start, allowing 
S.A.C. to score three quick goals at the beginning of the 
first period. The team, however, settled down to work after 
that and the game could very easily have ended in a tie. 

I do not know which team was the more surprised in 
the De La Salle game! We certainly had not anticipated a 
win for us; neither, I feel, had they! The Boulden House 
team undoubtedly played its best hockey of the season in 
this game. 

As usual, the final game of the season was with Rid- 
ley at Varsity Arena. Ridley played a very steady brand of 
hockey throughout the game and deserved their victory. 
T.C.S. seemed to have lost a bit of the fine "edge" they 
showed in their previous game and were rather ragged at 
the start, although they improved as the game went on.

House Game 

The House Game was a very close one this year and 
both teams played some really good hockey. Rigby House 
won the cup by a score of 3-2. 



Following the practice adopted last year, the Snipe 
Hockey League played two Championships. Great enthusi- 
asm was shown in both Leagues and from the general stan- 
dard of hockey, we should have some good prospects for 
next year's squad.

At the January meeting of the Governing Body Mr. 
H. L. Hall was unanimously elected a member of the Board. 
Several members mentioned the enthusiastic and vital assist- 
ance Mr. Hall had given the School in many ways and his 
whole-hearted support of the T.C.S. Fund. T.C.S. is for- 
tunate to have the benefit of his wide experience and keen 


The School is deeply grateful to the many Old Boys who

Harry Cox ('42-'45) has won fame in Bermuda as a 
lecturer on the history of that beautiful and romantic island. 
He has spoken to more than 120,000 people over the years 
and shown his excellent slides. He is often on T.V. and radio 
and a few weeks ago started a thirteen week series of semi- 


weekly talks on local history over a Bermuda station. And 
all this is done in his spare time since Harry is manager 
of Thomas Miles & Company and is on the job from 8 a.m. 
until 6 p.m. T.C.S. boys will remember the talks he gave 
at the School on Bermuda when he was a boy here. Harry 
is the eldest son of Sir John Cox and his ancestors emigrated 
to Bermuda over three hundred and fifty years ago. The 
School hopes he will find his way back to T.C.S. with his 
wife and tell the Bermuda story to the boys.

A letter from the Headmaster to Parents, sixty-two 
years ago: 

February 10th, 1895. 
Dear Sir, 

I regret to inform you that the School building was 
burnt down last night. No one was injured in any way; 
and all the boys are comfortably housed, with friends in 
the town. Arrangements are being made to obtain the St, 
Lawrence Hall, in Port Hope, and to carry on the work of 
the School, with only a day or two's interruption. 

Yours truly, 

C. J. S. Bethune, 

Head Master. 

A thumb nail sketch of Port Hope, written in 1885. 

The Town of Port Hope stands on the site of the ancient 
Indian Village of Ganeraska, a place visited by French mis- 
sionaries more than 260 years ago (now 322 years ago). It 
has borne in succession the names of Toronto, Smith's 
Creek, and Port Hope, the latter designation being more 
than sixty years old, and likely to be permanent. Where 
the tower of the Collegiate School now looks down on Port 
Hope, the early French pioneers must have often stood and 
looked out upon a waving landscape, of which the neigh- 
boring pine grove still whispers a reminiscence. As of old, 
Pine street still leads down to the harbour; but otherwise, 
how altered the scene! For the seclusion and romantic 
gloom of sylvan ravines, we have all the bustle and circum- 
stance of a young city, which for beauty of situation has 
scarcely an equal on the lakes. Its present population is 
about 6,000, and though it cannot boast of extensive manu- 
factures, as a place of residence it possesses attractions and 
advantages equalled by a very few of the towns of Ontario.

There was the dead, cold face of a dawn sea 
Flowing neither to night nor day, resting 
Perpetually neutral, changeless in time, 
Nursing none at her ocean-bed breasts; 

Until, out of the endless dawn, swiftly 
The 'fiat lux' came, clear, with the ring 
Of a struck wine glass — 

And the rhyme 
Of sea and sun spoke faintly on the far-off crests. 

—David Wevill ('46-'52) 


Professor Reginald A. Fessenden (T.C.S. 1877-1884) 

On the night of December 21, 1906, Professor Reginald 
Aubrey Fessenden threw a switch and the 420-foot antenna 
of the National Electric Signalling Co. at Brant Rock, Mass., 
began to radiate a programme of music, song and speech. 

For those who collect such facts, I may remark that 
the first item on the programme — and thus the first music 
ever broadcast by radio-telephony — was an Edison-Bell re- 
cording of Handel's Largo. 

At Plymouth, Mass., 10 miles distant, the reception was 
perfect — and so it is that December 21 marked the Jubilee 
of The Broadcast Word. (Wireless telegraphy, pioneered 


chiefly by Marconi, had of course started earlier, but that 
is another story.) 

Now, while there must always be argument as to who, 
in fact, really invented the flying-machine, the incandescent 
electric lamp, the telephone, and other triumphs of ingenuity, 
there is not — and never has been — the least doubt that 
beginnings of radio-telephony were the achievement of one 
man, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden. And yet, in a modem 
world which owes more than half its distinguishing "modern" 
characteristics to the universality of wireless and television, 
his name remains almost completely imknown. 

When Fessenden died, aged only 64, in 1932, he had 
been honored by none save purely professional and academic 
bodies, and hardly a newspaper, save The New York Times, 
accorded him more than a brief paragraph. In most of the 
world's press his death was ignored. 

Reginald Aubrey Fessenden was born at Milton, Ont., 
of New England parents, and educated at Trinity College 
School, Port Hope, and Beckett's College in Quebec. He 
first joined Edison, then left that great inventor to become 
professor of electrical engineering at Purdue University, 
and went on from Purdue to occupy a similar chair at the 
University of Pittsburgh. 

In 1900, Fessenden left Pittsburgh to become consulting 
engineer to the Submarine Signals Co., and it was here that 
he first had the advantage of being backed by a first-class 
technical unit capable of working out practical solutions to 
the problems that his experiments were constantly throw- 
ing up. 

For he had, in fact, succeeded in transmitting speech — 
though in an appallingly distorted and inarticulate manner 
— as early as 1900. 

Basing his work on that of Sir Oliver Lodge, Fessen- 
den — still employed by Edison — had conceived the idea that 
good results in transmitting sound by "wireless" could be 
obtained by the use of an antenna in conjunction with a 
local circuit tuned to the same frequency as that of the 


aerial. After tests with a Wehnelt interrupter and other 
devices, Fessenden settled upon an induction coil and com- 
mutator as a make-and-break mechanism for his tuned cir- 
cuit. With this circuit, which gave approximately 10,000 
sparks per second, and using two 50-foot antennae, set a 
mile apart, Fessenden managed to achieve the wireless 
transmission of human speech in the autumn of 1900. 

His next problem was the achievement of undistorted 
speech — a much more difficult problem. It took him another 
five years to solve that problem. 

Work on high-frequency AC dynamos had begun as 
early as 1900, and by 1902 a 1-kw. machine, delivering about 
10 amps, at 100 volts, was available. With this, Fessenden 
used a transformer giving about 10,000 volts, and an inter- 
rupter producing approximately 20,000 sparks per second. 

By 1906, Fessenden had foimd the HF dynamo that he 
needed. "It was necessary that it should give a pure sine 
wave, as such a form is the only one adapted to give perfect 
resonance" — a declaration which stands at the very foun- 
dation of radio science and technology. 

At the end of 1906, Fessenden invited a select but repre- 
sentative audience to witness his first radio-telephonic broad- 
cast. Among those asked was the then editor of the Ameri- 
can Telephone Journal. 

For me, the most memorable aspect of that historic 
broadcast is the comment that the editor of the American 
Telephone Journal made in the succeeding number of his 
magazine; a comment which showed that he, at least, did 
not doubt that he had witnessed an experiment of im- 
paralleled importance. 

"At sea," the editor wrote, "the wireless telephone may 
be used as a safety device in foggy weather. On land, it is 
doubtful if it will ever supplant the local exchanges with 
wires." (This remark is still largely valid.) "It is admir- 
ably adapted to the transmitting of news, music, etc., as, 
owing to the fact that no wires are needed, simultaneous 
transmission to many subscribers can be effected as easily 
as to a few."

Verses composed by Canon C. J. S. Stuart and in- 
corporated in his speech to the bride at the Ham-Paterson 
wedding on October 27, 1956. 

Christopher Blaikie wrote out to Vancouver 
To say to his parents, "I am 
Engaged to the loveliest, dearest young person 
Nancy Elisabeth Ham. 

She's slight, and she's sweet, tho' not so petite 
And she fits in my arms like a glove. 
She's all that is wonderful, cheerful and gay 
In fact she's the girl that I love." 

"Where did I find her?" No doubt you will ask 
And I hasten to calm your suspicions, 
"I found her right here in Toronto, but Oh! 
Under the strangest conditions. 

She was working each day right up on the hill 

In that place known as old U.C.C. 

For her family right down from her great Uncle Prant 

Have had that connection you see. 

But you've always taught me since I was a boy 
E'en before I joined T.C.S. 
That as a knight errant I must be prepared 
To rescue a dame in distress. 

So boldly I charged up the hill in pursuit 
And I snatched her from imder their noses 
To make her my own, a T.C.S. bride 
Though all U.C.C. should oppose us. 


And now we'll be married and one of my tasks 
Is to teach her according to rule 
That of all these establishments, called educational 
T.C.S. is by far the best School. 

So wish me a strong heart, a strong right arm too, 
In case she's ideas of her own. 
She's said she'll obey, and she'll do what I say, 
But to doubts I confess I am prone. 

Her language is lurid and has been since childhood 

The least I expect is a 'damn' 

Or a 'hell' though she knows she is now 

Mrs. Paterson, not Nancy Ham. 

So here's to the bride, may her life be a happy one 
We offer our very best wishes. 
May her husband survive her efforts to cook, 
And help her in washing the dishes.

LT.-COL. G. H. McLaren ('90-'94) 

George Hagarty McLaren was a member of the well- 
known Hamilton family which has sent so many boys to 
T.C.S. during the past seventy-five years. At T.C.S. he made 
good progress in his studies and played all the usual games. 
In 1895 he entered the Trinity Medical College, graduating 
in 1899. For the next six years he practiced in hospitals 
in Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, and Birmingham, England. 
He became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons and 
a licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians. 

In 1906 he went to Egypt as Superintendent of the 
Ophthalmic Hospital in Cairo. Returning to Canada in 1908 
he was on the staff of Grace Hospital and the Hospital for 
Sick Children until he went overseas on the outbreak of 
the First World War. Serving as a Captain with the 48th 
Highlanders he was mentioned in despatches for his gal- 
lantry but was seriously gassed at the battle of Ypres in 
April 1915 and was repatriated to Canada. He rose to be- 
come Second in Command of the 96th Battalion and re- 
turned to France, being on active service until the end of 
the war in 1918. 

For two years after the war he commanded the 48th 
Highlanders and always took the deepest interest in the 
welfare of the regiment. 

In 1921 he retired from medical practice owing to his 
war injuries. He died on January 7. 


Colonel McLaren's only son, Fred ('28-'37), a Major 
with the 48th Highlanders, died of wounds in December 
1944 after serving from the outbreak of war; a daughter. 
Lieutenant Susanna McLaren, was killed while serving in 

COLONEL F. B. WILSON ('82-'87) 

Colonel Wilson died in London, England, on December 
11, at the age of eighty-six. He had been leading his normal 
life imtil a few weeks before his death. Colonel Wilson had 
kept in close touch with the School for most of his life 
and he often wrote to the Headmaster and said how much 
he enjoyed reading The Record. Only a few months ago 
he sent magazines to the Library and in 1934 he made a 
generous contribution to Trinity Camp, then a dream, a 
contribution which was doubled by his wife. 

At T.C.S. Colonel Wilson won prizes in his school work, 
played on Littleside and Middleside Teams, and passed into 
R.M.C. ninth on the list. Attached to the Artillery for a 
time he then practiced Civil Engineering, surveying for the 
C.P.R. near Winnipeg. Later he worked with railways in 
the U.S.A. and returning to Canada he went into business 
in Vancouver. In the First World War he went overseas 
with the 48th Battalion, was woimded at Ypres, returned 
to duty and was appointed assistant Director of Light Rail- 
ways to the British First Army. He was mentioned in 
despatches three times and awarded the O.B.E. 

After retiring from business in the twenties, Colonel 
Wilson took up residence in Oakville: he did voluntary 
work for the Poppy Fund in Toronto. A few years before 
the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 he moved 
to London, England, and travelled considerably, visiting 
Australia, South Africa and most of Europe. He was in 
England throughout the War and did most valuable work 
for the Merchant Navy. After the war he continued to 
reside in London and Europe but he paid almost yearly visits 
to Canada. 



Nothing has shocked the School so much in recent years 
as the sudden death at the beginning of December of Gary 
Dalgleish. Gary had entered McMaster University in Septem- 
ber and seemed to be in the best of health and the news 
numbed his many friends. Those whom the gods love die 
young,' it has been said, and perhaps Gary's brave spirit was 
not of this world. 

He came to us as a young lad, a keen and talented ath- 
lete, and so anxious to excel in all he did. He won the Magee 
Cup and colours on Littleside in Football, Hockey and Gjmin. 
The next year he spent in South Africa, returning to T.C.S. 
in April 1953. After six weeks in the Cadet Corps he was 
voted The Most Improved Cadet.' 

Again he distinguished himself in games and won all 
hearts by his modesty. After winning Middleside Colours in 
Football and Hockey he played on First Teams in these sports 
and no one who saw him in action will ever forget his superb 
goal tending on T.C.S. hockey teams. In fom- years in the 
nets he was beaten only three times in thirty games, a record 
which will probably stand for all time. When the Headmaster 
mentioned this in Hall, the whole School cheered him to the 
echo. He was awarded a Distinction Cap in Hockey. A most 
helpful member of the Pat Moss Club, he also belonged to the 
Political Science Club and was appointed a House Officer. 

History was his favourite subject and everyone admired 
his perseverance in more difficult work, his quiet determina- 
tion to overcome all his problems. Gary was a serious minded 
lad and liked to discuss important questions and his own 
future: one felt that he would like nothing better than to 
help the less fortunate but he realized that he needed further 
education before he could see his vocation clearly. 

We shall always remember Gary Dalgleish, a rare spirit 
with an unplumbed depth of soul. 

His School friends were bearers at his funeral in To- 
ronto, and the School Hymn was sung. That evening in 
Chapel The Headmaster spoke to the School about him.

The result of the Federal election on June 10 surprised 
everyone and one of the exciting outcomes for T.C.S, was 
the fact that one of our younger and most eminent Old Boys, 
a former President of the Old Boys' Association, has been 
appointed the Minister of Transport in Mr. Diefenbaker's 


George H. Hees ('22-'27) has taken a leading place in 
the Progressive Conservative Party almost since his election 
for Toronto Broadview riding in 1950. He is a former 
President of the Progressive Conservative Party and 
travelled throughout the Dominion speaking to many 
thousands of his fellow citizens; in the recent campaign he 
concentrated his efforts during the two weeks before June 10 
in the Maritimes and the sweep of P.C.'s in those Provinices 
testifies to the effectiveness of his campaigning. 

George H^es spent five years at T.C.S. and took a full 
part in the life of the School, giving evidence of becoming 
a first-rate athlete. He left before completing his Honour 
Matriculation as he had qualified for admission to R.M.C. 
After a most successful career there he spent two years at 
the University of Toronto and then went to Emmanuel 
College, Cambridge, for a year. He became well known there 
for his boxing prowess, winning the Intercollegiate Heavy- 
weight. He entered business in Toronto and played football 
for the Argonauts. He enlisted at the outbreak of war and 
served for six years in the Infantry, rising to the rank of 
Major. He was wounded in 1944. In May, 1950, he won 
the Broadview by-election and has been a Member of Par- 
liament since then. 

As far as we can see from our records, no other T.C.S. 
Old Boy has been a Federal Cabinet Minister. Mr. L. K. 
Jones (1865-67) was Deputy Minister of Railways and 
Canals for many years and a few Old Boys have been Mem- 
bers of the House of Commons and Members of the Senate, 
but the Federal political field has not been tilled and sown 
by Old Boys as it might have been. 

All members of the School, whatever their political 
affiliations, join in paying tribute to the Honourable George 
H. Hees, M.P., Minister of Transport. 

The first issue of The Record was printed in April 


We are therefore marking the sixtieth anniversary 
of this widely known School magazine: we believe we have 
published, in sixty years, more issues than any other school 
magazine and we hope that the quality has been even 
better than the quantity. 

The next issue will be a Special Anniversary Number 
to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee. 



On Sunday, March 10, Mr. Heard gave the address at our evening 
Chapel service. He began by repeating a popular question, "What 
are you giving up for Lent?" No one, he contimiod, ever seems to 
reply, "I will do something." Yet we observe Lent because Jesus, 
always a positive man, spent this period resisting the Devil's power- 
ful temptations. In the most strong-minded manner possible, He 
prepared Himself for the final, most demanding test — ^^the Crucifixion. 
His forty days in the wilderness are a prime example of doing 
rather than of giving up, and we can follow His example in many 
ways. First of all, we can examine ourselves closely to determine 
to what extent our customary thoughts, actions, and abstinences 
arc beneficial to others. He can eliminate our use of "flavoured" 
words, particularly those which arouse unpleasant racial prejudices. 
Secondly, we can read the biography of someone who has enriched 
the world, rather than absorb tasteless literatiu'e which only occupies 
space needlessly in our minds. Another suggestion is to have a 
private talk with someone who is constantly laughed at or in trouble, 
to help him understand his mistakes. We should read a chapter 
of the Bible daily to discover the true nature of Christ. Finally, 
Mr. Heard concluded, if we are confronted with any serious problem. 


we should discuss it with God, both during the evening Chapel services 
and privately, in our own time. Thus Lent can and should be a 
period of positive doing, not of negative giving up. 


On March 17, Canon Lawrence, speaking to us in Chapel, took 
as his text Joshua, XXIV verse 15 — "Choose you this day whom ye 
will serve." 

In the first place our Chaplain said that we are continually the 
victims of two worlds already present. But only one can be accepted. 
In trying to choose life's business one is often tempted to take the 
easy way out. But the easy way is sometimes shameful. We should 
think before we act even if our decisions may be costly to ourselves. 

The degree of satisfaction which accompanies a decision made 
at great cost, is indescribable. Conversely, it becomes sooner or 
later impossible to content oneself with a choice (in any great 
matter) that is plainly unworthy. Our conscience will always in- 
dicate whether the path we have taken is favourable or not. 

Jesus has said that it is better to be rid of hand or foot or 
eye if they hinder your progress towards perfection. These types 
of decisions are not made completely on one's own strength but 
with the grace of Jesus, who might have gained the "kingdoms of 
the world and the glory of them" but rather undertook the path 
which led to his death on the cross. 


On March 24, the Rev. A. M. Laverty of Queens University 
spoke at evening Chapel. 

Padre Laverty took his text from John 10; 1-11, the parable 
of the good shepherd. In our youth, we often said, "Jesus Christ, 
meek and mild, have pity on a little child." Although Jesus was 
gentle and mild, he had strength and courage in every sense, for, 
as He said, "I am the good shepherd." Different to what we might 
imagine, a shepherd was, at that time, a strong man who cared for 
sheep in unfenced pasture land, and who had to work even through 
the night so that the sheep might not stray. In those days the sheep 
were led, not driven as they ai'e today. 

Jesus said, "I am the door of the sheep." The parable which He 
related as an illustration told of a shepherd leading his sheep to 
the fold at sundown through a narrow opening. Jesus, the good 
shepherd, explained, "I am the door, by me if any man enter in, he 
shall be saved." 

Jesus shows us the character of the shepherd in another parable, 
that of a shepherd who rejoiced more upon finding one lost sheep 
than for all the others that did not stray. The lost sheep had 
often to be rescued from a precarious position on the side of a cliff. 
Thus it is that when Christ said to the crowd, "I am the good 
shepherd," no one laughed or smiled; they believed. 



On March 31, the Rev. Canon F. A. M, Smith ('16-'20) spoke 
to the School on the subject of work. Canon Smith pointed out 
that he was quite capable of talking of work, in physical as well 
as other senses, because of the jobs he had when he was young. A 
minister of course also has a great deal of work, despite modern 
conceptions to the contrary. 

One modern idea incorporates the philosophy that work is evil — 
hence one should work hard in this life in order to have rest in a 
later life. This is basically an incorrect assumption because one is 
working continually for God. 

Work used to be connected to religion, but in the world of 
today, the two have become somewhat separated. Canon Smith 
stated that we need to put God back into our work now, as we 
take our places in the fields of industry and commerce. Often people, 
lacking a true sense of values, incorrectly place work above all 
other essentials. 

In one's life work, it is necessary to learn to respect those who 
work under you. Numerous employers tend to treat men as machines 
without feeling, thus failing, unfortunately, to foster friendships. 

Taking two words, stewardship and sacrifice. Canon Smith showed 
that we must work for God in His name and also must sacrifice 
ourselves for others on this earth. 

In closing. Canon Smith said we should choose our vocation on 
the basis of its contribution to society rather than its monetary 


On Saturday, April 6, the Right Reverend G. B. Snell, Suffragan 
Bishop of Toronto, addressed the School at the annual Confirmation 
Service. In his address, Bishop Snell emphasized the grave im- 
portance of the responsibilities which the candidates had just accepted 
before the eyes of God. The well-known story of Chi-ist's trip to 
Jerusalem at the age of twelve brings out the difficulties which arise 
in keeping these promises. On the return trip, when Jesus had re- 
mained in the temple, to take upon Himself the responsibilities of 
the Son of God, Mary feared that He had been lost on the way. 
There is, after Confirmation, a danger of everyone being thus lost 
on the way for various reasons. First of all, the realization will soon 
come that the Christian life is very difficult to follow; to try again 
and again after failure will not be easy. Again, the gi^eat experience 
of Confirmation should be a peak of achievement from which descent 
is painful; yet one must come down and work for Jesus. Finally, 
many people who feel they have lost Jesus and must soon rejoin him. 
simply put off this renewal indefinitely. But when Chi'ist is needed, 
He must always be sought immediately. By realizing and avoiding 
these dangers, Bishop Snell concluded, one can follow the road with 
Christ to the end of the journey. 



On Sunday, April 28, Canon Cecil Stuart ('97-'01) spoke to the 
School about prayer. It was, however, a specific type of prayer — 
prayer in which the sinner asks God's help in bringing him "out of 
the miry clay." 

Dr. Stuart then told us of a visit he had paid to a friend by 
car. Having missed the correct turn, he followed the next street. It 
seemed at first an attractive avenue, but it soon proved otherwise. 
Dr. Stuart soon found himself stuck in deep mud. Walking to his 
friend's house, he there phoned a tow truck which soon came to 
the rescue. 

The significance of the story is evident. It is advisable to heed 
the sensible advice to avoid the wrong but pleasant looking avenues 
and to take the correct turns. 

On a long motor trip also, as on the road of life, one needs re- 
fuelling at a gas station. The filling station in life is the church 
and gasoline can be compared to the grace of God. It is by prayer 
that we may seek God's guidance. 

Easter brings us a two-fold message. Firstly, the younger genera- 
tion must look ahead in this Ufe, following the best of ideals, while 
to older people Easter is a promise of a life to come. The second 
and universal message is that everybody always has the opportunity 
to turn to God whenever discord arises. 


On May 5, Mr. John Barton ('43-'47) chose as his text a passage 
from the second chapter of the Epistle of St. Paul to the Phillipians. 
Developing his theme "at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow", 
Mr. Barton pointed out that the major world problems stem fi'om 
man's basic inability to live in peace and harmony with his neigh- 
bours. He stated that to-day we seek peace through ideals to which 
we give only intellectual assent. St. Paul's idea was of a world 
existing as a family under one father. 

A congregation of Christ, he reasoned, would put to an end 
forever such problems as racial discrimination, because to be a good 
Christian one must be able to rise above such base prejudices. 

He went on to say that the first problem to be overcome in 
the evolution of a truly Christian society is getting people to live 
as Christians. To do this, he pointed out, some people are going to 
have to live like Christ and these would influence others to live 
in the same manner. If St. Paul's dream is to be fulfilled a certain 
number of us will have to set the example for others. 

Mr. Barton said that he realized that many of us had doubts 
about God's call to the ministry. He told us that the people who 
are called are many and varied. Mr. Barton gave us three illustrations 
of how three men (himself included) had been called to take up 
God's teachings when their backgrounds and dispositions had made 
them, they thought, unlikely candidates. Mr. Barton concluded his 
talk by asking the boys to think seriously about the ministry and 
its needs. 



The Rev. F. H. Cosgrave spoke to the School on May 12, taking 
as his topic, responsibility. Dr. Cosgrave pointed out that we, as 
human beings, are responsible for our own thoughts, words, and 
deeds, because of our possession of reasoning power and the ability 
to distinguish between right and wrong. Another responsibility in- 
volves our contribution as citizens of a democracy, which entitles 
us to a voice in our own government. Whereas people under a despot 
are deprived of the privilege of freely speaking their opinions. We, 
collectively speaking, are allowed to choose between different courses 
of action. Thus it should be considered a disgrace for citizens in a 
democracy to fail to show an interest in public affairs, and in the 
happenings of importance on the international scene. 

A further way in which we, as Christians, are responsible for 
our actions is in our attitude to our fellow men. One must love 
his neighbour, a neighbour in this sense of the word meaning any- 
one, anywhere, who is suffering. Today we can indulge in far greater 
visions than those of our ancestors. It is unrealistic to retreat from 
difficult social problems. We must face them as Christians, and bring 
peace to the world, if we are not to fail those who have gone before, 
and those who are still to come. 

Thus Dr. Cosgrave showed the significance of great responsibility 
in the struggle for fellowship and peace. 


The Headmaster spoke in Chapel on Sunday, May 19, and told 
the Sixth Form that he was just going to give them some thoughts 
which had been in his mind as it was the last time he would ever 
be able to speak to them as a group in the T.C.S. Chapel. 

He first mentioned Time and remarked that school boys think 
of it, if at all, in small quantities, class periods, the length of a 
game, the time taken for a sermon, etc.; our lives seem to stretch 
endlessly before us when we are young and it is certainly right not 
to worry or be apprehensive about the future, but we should make 
the most of the moments we have. 

Some will be saying that this term has disappeared as quickly 
as early morning dew and that it only seems yesterday that you first 
came to Boulden House. "Slow goes the hour, how passing quick 
the time." That is probably true of younger people but when we 
become older the more apt quotation is "For at my back I always 
hear, Time's winged chariot hovering near." 

The years can disappear all too quickly and that is something 
you should have in mind. "It's later than you think" might be a 
good motto for you to remember, or "Opportunity knocks only once." 
There are certainly many people in the world who regret not having 
made more use of their younger years. You remember the Parable 
of the Talents — the steward who used his to best advantage was 
most rewarded. I suggest that you live life to the full and live it

well and never throw away hours or opportunities. The first forty 
years of man's life are probably the best and disappear quickly. 

Closely related to this thought is another suggestion: when you 
meet groups of grown up people in future yeai's you will soon notice 
that the man who does more than others is always asked to take 
on added responsibilities and somehow he becomes more and more 
capable, able to carry six loads when others can carry only one. 
As he expands and expends himself he is given more strength. "Unto 
wliom that hath is given." St. James makes a statement which has 
always appealed to me to be excellent advice: "Be ye doers and 
not hearers only." The doer leai'ns by doing, he adds to his stature, 
and he gains the confidence and admiration of his fellow men. St. 
James mentioned that we should be "doers of the word" and the 
word is found in this Bible which you have heard daily throughout 
the school year but to which you have probably never given sufficient 
thought or study. 

And one last comment: it has been said that the most revolutionary 
of all Chi'ist's teaching was his declaration that all men were brothers, 
all made in the image of God. That certainly must have startled 
the world of Christ's time as it still startles the world when we 
really think about it, and yet it probably stands at the centre of 
Christian belief. Sometimes I think the world today might be 
likened to a boxer who has suffered three heavy blows and is dizzy 
and "punch-drunk" from them: the first two were the World Wars 
and the third was the realization of the atom and hydrogen bomb. 
The boxer is badly in need of his seconds, the organizations such as 
the United Nations, N.A.T.O. etc. and they keep him from being 
knocked out. But another bout, a few more blows might destroy 
hmi. Under such compulsion the world begins to remember that 
friendship is worth having, that those we know we usually like and 
that it is wise to try to understand and like our brother men. Most 
of our leaders are trying to keep an uneasy peace by intellectual 
processes, thinking up new moves, inventing new devices, but they 
forget the limitless power of comradeship and friendship, the warm 
glow which radiates between those who know and really like each 
other. It is more powerful than any rules or regulations or treaties 
or ideologies. "One commandment I leave with you," said Christ, 
"that ye love one another." 

Cardinal Newman, the great intellectual and Church leader of 
the last century, in his "Idea of a University," says this: "When 
you can quarry the granite rock with a razor or moor the vessel 
with a silken thread, then that keen and delicate instrument, the 
human mind and human knowledge, will be able to contend with 
those giants, the passion and the pride of man." 

Moi-e than intellect is required and that more is friendship, under- 
standing, even love between peoples, and a deep concern for the wel- 
fare of all peoples everywhere. 

Remember that Christ lived only thirty years, and that all his 
earthly teaching was completed in two years; use your time and 
opportunities and don't abuse or lose them. Grow in strength by 
doing and deepen the understanding and friendship between people, 
knowing as you do the value of it in a community such as this. "Be 
ye doei's of the word and not hearers only." 



The Reverend J. H. Craig, rector of Grace Church, Toronto, ad- 
dressed the School on Sunday, May 26. He told us of a trip he made 
through California, where he found the giant redwood trees. These 
forest nionarchs, continued Canon Craig, sometimes grow to an in- 
credible height of four hundred feet, and attain an age of four 
thousand years, the oldest living things on the Earth. The redwood 
tale is like a parable, and we can benefit by its example. We should 
be content with small beginnings, like the redwood which starts from 
a tiny seed, for although the modern trend is towards big enterprises, 
so many really significant, great things, good and bad, have had 
almost insignificant beginnings. Like the redwood we should stand 
straight and grow tall, not only physically, but mentally, morally, 
and spiritually as well, to form the kind of men the world needs 
today. Finally, we should outlive any hindrance and never stop grow- 
ing. The test of a man is not what he is, but what he is becoming; 
God wants us to be the best that we can be, and to continue with 
visions of a better life. Thus, like the redwood. Canon Craig con- 
cluded, we must always live climbing towards the peak of our com- 
plete development. 


On June 2, at the annual Memorial Service, we had as guest 
speaker the Honourable J. W. Foote, V.C., LL.D., D.D., Minister of 
Reform Institutions for the Province of Ontario. 

At this special service we remember the fourteen hundred Old 
Boys who fought in the Boer War and in the two World Wars. But 
this service should not be a repetitive funeral service. Major Foote 
said. We should rather look to the future and our responsibilities, 
taking as an example those men who gave their very lives in defense 
of what they believed in. We, as the students of today, will be the 
leadeis of tomorrow. Tomorrow is not so very far off and nothing 
will keep us from the many responsibilities that await us. 

In either a state of peace or in a state of war we must play our 
parts. In the past several decades of T.C.S. boys, many became 
soldiers in defense of their country. In this service we think of the 
many who made the supreme sacrifice. 

Major Foote went on to say that we must remember that 
civilizations are not immortal. They die as we die, but they can be 
prolonged by courageous men giving them life. Thei'e are seeds of 
destruction still in our world of today, and our only real defense 
against them is a people of strong will and determination. Everyone 
can help in some way and it is certainly necessary that we do so 
if we wish to maintain a free democratic country. By doing our 
part we may more easily keep the happiness and freedom which we 
enjoy today. 



The Choir, which commenced to function in September of 1956 
with seventy-five per cent new personnel, gave a most satisfactory 
account of itself throughout the year. The purpose of this Choral 
Group is chiefly to lead the singing in the Chapel Services and to 
prepare special music for the various festivals, such as the Carol 
Service, Choral Communion, the Old Boys' Service in May, the 
Memorial Service, an informal term-end concert, and Speech Day. 

A Te Deum (Stanford) undertaken in the Lent Term was very 
successfully rendered on three occasions. This was quite a major 
effort for boys of this age. On one occasion Mr. Prower and Saunders 
accompanied the music on tnmipets. 

The Choir Boys are really to be commended for their devotion, 
enthusiasm and the high standard of the work. Head Choir Boy, 
Terry Hall, was a most efficient and co-operative assistant. 

We should give the boys leaving our grateful thanks for their 
help and wish them a very happy and successful future. — E.C,

The flowers on the Altar on Speech Day were in 
memory of Herman Francis Grant Ede ('30-'34) who was 
killed in the R.A.F. at Narvik on June 9, 1940, where he 
won the D.F.C. They were sent by his mother and brother 
in Bermuda. 


The principal donations this year have been as follows: 

For help to families at Christmas $150.00 

For relief of refugees from Hungary 362.00 

The Scott Mission, Toronto 25.00 

The Salvation Army 25.00 

The Society for Crippled Children 25.00 

Moorelands Camp (downtown Church workers) 25.00 


The Red Cross Society 25.00 

United Appeal, Toronto 75.00

The Church Bible and Prayer Book Society 15.00 

(Bibles and Prayer Books for Mission Dioceses) 

The Neighbourhood Workers (Bolton Camp) 15.00 

The Canadian National Institute for the BHnd 15.00 

Our Own Trinity Camp 250.00 

This is the largest sum ever contributed from Chapel 
Funds in one year. 


It is proposed that The Record should revert to its 
pre-1933 policy of publishing three numbers a year instead 
of the present five issues. During the past School year it 
has been mailed free to all Old Boys for whom we have 
addresses and also to parents of present boys, a mailing 
list of some 2,500 names. This decision was adopted at 
the annual meeting of the O.B.A. in May, 1956. 


At the annual meeting last May it was recommended 
that the Old Boys' Bulletin, begun four years ago, be re- 
issued and named The T.C.S. News. After much discussion 
it was decided that there should be three numbers a year 
of the Old Boys' Bulletin and that it should be free to 
all Old Boys on our list and parents of boys who have 
shown interest in the School by subscribing to the Fund. 

The Record should be published primarily for the boys 
in the School and their parents and should contain news of 
interest to them as well as being a record of events for 
future years. It would be included in the fee which is paid 
for boys, and others could subscribe at a nominal sub- 

T.C.S. is the only School which has published a maga- 
zine of the size of The Record six times a year (1933-1950), 
or, indeed, five times a year (1950-1957), and the startling 
increase in costs when it is mailed free to 2,500 subscribers 
means there is a pretty heavy drain on School finances. 

"The T.C.S. News" will provide Old Boys with accounts 
of School happenings of interest to them, but in briefer 
form, and the Old Boys' Notes will be continued and prob- 
ably expanded. 

The dates of publication would be December, April and 
August for The Record, and October, February and June 
for The T.C.S. News. 

Comments on these proposals would be welcome, and 
should be addressed to J. M. Kerr, T.C.S., Port Hope. 


Over fifty Old Boys and Parents contributed an amount 
of eleven hundred dollars to the Prize Fund this year. The 
Fund provided the academic prizes, the athletic awards, 
and special trophies given during term to the members of 
Championship teams. 

The boys are deeply grateful to the generous donors. 



During term the whole School was inoculated with 
Salk vaccine as protection against polio. We are, indeed, 
indebted to the Department of Health of the Province for 
making this vaccine available to us at no cost and to the 
Hon. J. W. Foote, V.C, for his help. Mrs. Scott, Mrs. 
Christie and Mrs. Wilson, all Registered Nurses, gave expert 
assistance, while Dr. McDerment, the School Physician, 
nobly kept jabbing arms for many long hours. The first 
inoculation came in May, the second in June and the third 
will be given next term. 

The Choir has received much praise for its singing, 
particularly during the last half of the year. They became 
one of the best balanced choral groups we have had, the 
basses and tenors were particularly good, and the trebles 
and altos made much improvement. It was a pity that the 
C.B.C. found it impossible to record one of the services but 
they may do so next year. 

A Choir tie has been designed and should be available 
next term. 


The School gives is most sincere congratulations to 
C. P. R. L. Slater ('48-'51), C. M. Taylor ('46-'49), Robin 
Jackson ('47-'53), Lawren Harris ('26-'29), H. M. Scott 
('51-'55), Hugh MacLennan ('42-'44), Ken Marshall ('45- 
'51), Peter Williamson ('42-'48), on the very high awards 
they have won at their universities recently. T.C.S. boys 
have now won 168 University Scholarships (not counting 
Fellowships or Prizes) in twenty-three years, a most praise- 
worthy and exceptional achievement especially when one 
considers that the average number of T.C.S. boys entering 
Universities annually over that period has not been more 
than thirty. 




In March last all expected vacancies were filled by 
boys who did well on the entrance examinations. Since 
then well over a hundred enquiries and applications have 
been received, and there is now a long waiting list. 

It would help to avoid disappointment in the future 
if Old Boys would advise parents to put their son's name 
down in January or February if they desire him to enter 
the following September. 

Boys are entered now until 1969, over fifty of them. 

Trinity Camp will be run this year from August 5th- 
17th. Twelve boys are coming, aU about twelve years of 
age, and Mr. Ang^s Scott will be in charge, assisted by 
several senior boys. 

The Diocesan Choir School will be occupying the Senior 
School buildings again for the last two weeks in August. 
About a hundred choir boys are expected and Dr. Healy 
Willan, with Mr. John Bradley, will be directing the school. 


It was such a pleasure to see and hear the Rev. F. H. 
Cosgrave again. He preached in Chapel on the morning 
after Inspection Day and there were many visitors in the 
congregation. This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of 
Dr. Cosgrave's first visit to T.C.S. to speak to the boys. 
Few men, if any, have made a deeper impression on many 
generations of school boys and University students, not to 
mention thousands of parishioners and hundreds of clergy. 

Our heartfelt admiration and affection flows out to 
Dr. Cosgrave. 

Most of the Upper School candidates left on June 20th 
after the Physics paper; over sixty VI and V Form boys 


remained after Speech Day and they mingled tennis and 
bowhng at the Lodge with studying. The VI Form also had 
some meetings with the Headmaster to discuss matters of 
importance to them and the School. After June 20th only 
a few boys were at the School and these dwindled to English 
and Hamilton who wrote Greek on June 28th and Young 
and Day who were just staying at a pleasant country estate. 
Now the buildings are quiet (except for the growling of 
an enormous power shovel next to Mr. Scott's rooms) and 
only memories haunt the halls. 


During the winter term the School had the privilege 
of hearing the Chaplain of Queen's University, Padre 
Laverty, give us a clear picture of University life. He showed 
us first a film which pictured the Campus, the Chapel, the 
Library and all the important buildings associated with the 
University. The film explained and enhanced aspects of the 
system there, and generally gave an encouraging picture. 
Mr. Laverty also assured us that our years at University 
would not be easy as far as work went, and that study was 
a prime concern. He dwelt on the fact that there would be 
many times when the freedom of the moment would tend 
to carry us away and we would feel like "whooping it up" 
as it were on weekends, or having a grand time every eve- 
ning. Although there would be no immediate consequences 
of this procedure, the result at the end of the year would 
perhaps be drastic. He emphasized this point mainly because 
the complete freedom at University as opposed to the more 
scheduled system of a high school, is bound to tend to lessen 
many students' efforts. The attitude we must take, there- 
fore, on entering University is to realize the full significance 
and importance of the goal we have set for ourselves. 

We are all grateful to the Rev. Mr. Laverty for his film 
and advice and that we are certain the years ahead at 
University appear to many in far better focus as a result 
of his visit. 








The School Fair this year was as much a success as 
it was hoped it would be. All Saturday afternoon, various 
members of the different tables (the School was divided 
into fund-raising teams by their dining hall seating) con- 
structed their booths, painted their signs, and arranged the 
various apparatus. There was everything from underwater 
diving and shots on Bigside goalie, the famous "organ," to 
bingo, dice, and other gambling games. There was a raffle 
for a giant angel cake kindly donated by Mrs. Clark, and 
then again one for four wheels and a board, namely Bun 
Austin and Company's Ford. The Adam Saunders orchestra 
contributed lively music almost continually throughout the 
three hours that the fair ran. 

Everybody who was anybody came to enjoy themselves. 
Master after master gave in to that horrible monster called 
Greed (or perhaps it was Charity), and with their eyes 
riveted on the prize, which was usually double your money 
or twenty-five cents, awkwardly attempted those games of 
skill and fell victim to the cause. Everybody played, every- 
body lost, and everybody enjoyed themselves. Even Mr. 
Richards, who at one point had profited to the tune of 
twenty-one dollars, eventually lost all to the Pat Moss Club. 

Another one of the more practical booths was the soft 
drink stand which also provided chocolate cake. It was a 
welcome sight to many of those throaty types who had been 
yelling out the advantages of their particular booths. The 
average group intake was between twelve and fifteen dollars, 
with the most successful breaking the thirty dollar mark. 

The grand total reached about two hundred and fifty 
dollars — pretty good work for one night. 

It was great fun for everyone concerned and was very 
worthwhile for such a cause as the Pat Moss camp. We 
hope it will continue as an annual event and are looking 
forward to a similar success next year. 

The entertainment committee, McCullagh and Willows 
in particular, are to be congratulated upon their fine job of 
organizing and supervising the fair. 



On Friday, March 22, Lieutenant Smallwood of the 
R.C.N, spoke to the School, pointing out the benefits of 
training in the services. Lieutenant Smallwood gave details 
to the effect that those who desire a career in one of the 
three services may join when eighteen years of age after 
completing the high school requirements and continue 
schooling at Canadian Service College — Royal Roads, C.M.R., 
or R.M.C. He spoke briefly on the University Training Plan. 
He stressed the idea that all boys should stay in school as 
long as practically possible. Lieutenant Smallwood also 
showed us pictures of life aboard the destroyer St. Laurent. 
These were accompanied by a running commentary. Two 
films completed the evening: one on R.M.C, the other a 
documentary of a trip from Halifax through the Northwest 
Passage and down to Esquimalt aboard the "Labrador." 


On Saturday, April 27, Mr. David J. Roche, Vice-Presi- 
dent of O'Keefe's Brewing Company, came to the School and 
showed us some very fine movies depicting "big game" hunt- 
ing in Africa. 

Before he showed the films, Mr, Roche explained that 
he had wanted to go to Africa to see and shoot the big game, 
(both with a rifle and a camera), for as long as he could 
remember. When he did get the opportunity a short while 
ago, he was fortunate to be accompanied by one of the 
most skilful and noted hunters in Africa, and through this 
man's knowledge received the opportunities for taking the 
excellent movies which he filmed. 

During the movies, the viewers started and gaped at 
the fascinating picture of the jungle animals leaping and 
cavorting in their natural habitat. One particularly amazing 
sequence showed an ultra-close-up of a lioness and her cubs, 
moving unawares before the camera. 


The boys wish to thank Mr. Roche for a very interesting 
and profitable evening, and for the trouble he went to 
to prepare it. It will not soon be forgotten. 


On Friday, May 24, the annual Hockey Dinner was 
held in Osier Hall. Present were all the boys who had played 
on Bigside teams during the winter term, and the captains 
and vice-captains of all School teams. After the dinner, 
trophies were awarded to those members of the Little Big 
Four Champion Swimming and Hockey teams, who had 
received their colours. This was followed by the presenta- 
tion of appreciative gifts to many of the coaches by their 
respective teams in recognition of the work done in the 
winter term. The dinner was adjourned following a throaty 
rendition of "Roll the Score Up" and the National Anthem. 

The following week, on Friday, May 31, a dinner was 
held for all those boys who had taken a keen interest in 
extra-curricular activities throughout the year. A most 
entertaining "sing-song" was held as an aftermath, during 
which the Headmaster sang "Vive La Compagnie!" with 
great gusto, and Mr. Lewis soloed in the title role of "O 
Shenandoah." The gathering then turned to a discussion 
on the new plans for the School magazine, "The Record," 
and many valuable pearls of suggestion were hatched in 
the course of the evening. Following the singing of the 
National Anthem, the dinner was adjourned. 

Appreciation is felt and expressed by all those who 
attended these special dinners to Mrs. Clark and all of her 
staff for the wonderful meals they prepared and served 
"above and beyond the call of duty." 


In June the Headmaster was instructed to leave his 
car at a garage in Toronto and pick up another. To his 
amazement and embarrassment the car waiting for him 


turned out to be a completely new looking Cadillac, 1953 
Fleetwood model, driven only thirteen thousand miles. Over 
twenty Governors, Parents and Old Boys made this gift 
possible and the School and the driver are tremendously 
indebted to them. 

During the last School year the Buick made some 
seventy trips to Toronto, conveying the Headmaster to 
School and University meetings, and altogether, in four 
years, it had run over seventy thousand miles. This 
gorgeous addition to the School's motorized machines casts 
an aura of glamour and prosperity which we hope will not 
be misinterpreted! 


Four years ago there was instituted an "Award of 
Merit", an honour which could be won by a Senior boy 
who by character and ability had made the School a better 
place by his presence, but who had missed out on the top 

This year the award goes to Colin H. H. McNairn who 
in his two years at T.C.S. has won a very high regard. 


During Term, the building committee of the Governing 
Body, Major Strachan Ince, Mr. H. L. Hall and the Head- 
master, was seen on numerous occasions examining build- 
ings and property. In June it became known that Bickle 
House was going to be constructed this summer immediately 
to the east of Brent House. The funds for the construction 
have been given by Mr. Ed. Bickle, whose son, T. H. Bickle 
('28-'32) was tragically drowned as a young man. 

Bickle House will provide accommodation for thirty-six 
boys, and have an apartment for a married master and 
rooms for a single master. At the same time the very small 
masters' apartments on the two lower floors of Brent House 
will be enlarged. 


The absolute capacity of the Senior School is 205 boys, 
twenty more than we have had, but the sixteen boys who 
have been in James' House and the Hospital will be housed 
in the main buildings. There would be no room in Hall or 
classrooms for more boys. Bill Greer ('37-'43) is the archi- 
tect for Bickle House and the excavation work began on 
Monday, June 24th. Plans call for the completion of the 
building by Saturday, September 7th. Term begins on Sep- 
tember 10th. 

With the completion of this House the School should be 
able to operate more economically and for the first time will 
be able to offer comfortable and convenient apartments to 
married masters. Mr. and Mrs. Bickle have enabled us to 
add another milestone in the progress of T.C.S. 


Last March over eighty boys wrote the examinations 
for entrance to the Senior School: there were fifty fore- 
seeable vacancies to be filled. The candidates came from 
all parts of Canada, and from the United States, Mexico, 
South America, England, France and South Africa. 

Scholarship candidates wrote a special test in addition 
to the entrance examinations. 

These tests, embodying achievement examinations in 
English and Mathematics, together with tests of academic 
promise and learning capacity, are fairly searching and 
seem to give a clear picture of the standard of work a 
candidate may accomplish. 

Other factors are taken into account, but, as the Head- 
master told the School last spring, boys at T.C.S. must 
realize that a high standard of attainment is expected of 
them. The Independent Schools should always give the lead 
in stressing excellence in work and character development. 

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the candidate's 
school record, the results of the entrance examinations, 


letters of reference, and, where possible, a personal inter- 

The amounts set for Scholarships and Bursaries are 
determined by the above considerations, the financial ability 
of the parents to meet the fees, and the sums available. 
During the past year Scholarships to the value of twelve 
thousand dollars have been held by boys and Bursaries to 
the value of ten thousand dollars. 


The special remedial reading department has been 
functioning extremely well since it was instituted last 
autumn. Dr. Katharine Spencer is in charge and has given 
almost invaluable assistance to many boys. Some twenty 
Senior School boys and five Boulden House boys have re- 
ported regularly and the improvement in their reading has 
been marked, both in speed and understanding. 

Within the last quarter of a century the importance of 
good reading has been increasingly recognized in educa- 
cational circles. 

From the elementary grades, through school and college, 
and after formal education is completed, the value of rapid 
and accurate reading skill is a fundamental necessity. In 
spite of the pervading influence of mass means of com- 
munications, such as radio, television and motion pictures, 
there is no real substitute for reading skill. 

It is a generally accepted fact that many students do 
not read as well as they could, while a large number of 
students fall far below their potential reading standard. 
Next to intelligence, general reading ability is often the most 
significant difference between good and poor students. In a 
survey made recently among eleventh grade pupils of the 
same average intelligence, it was found that the good read- 
ers made higher marks, not only in English, History and 
similar subjects, but also in chemistry and mathematics. 
The same results have come from studies of the relation- 




ship between reading ability and academic success in college. 

Remedial reading aims at improving basic reading skill 
in speed and comprehension. It would be useless to increase 
a pupil's speed if no corresponding increase in comprehen- 
sion was attained. Each student presents a different prob- 
lem, and by individual testing and observation, the remedial 
reading teacher tries to discover and overcome the problems 
facing each pupil. 

During the past year, it has been most encouraging to 
observe the progress made by the boys taking this course. 
In every case an increase in reading speed has been ap- 
parent, varying from 25 to over 100%. Three machines 
are used in the work: the Tachitron, for training the eye in 
recognition of numbers, words and phrases; the Pacer, for 
practice in free reading and general reading; the Reading 
Accelerator, for practice in reading speed and accuracy. 

Student "R" was faced with definite reading disability, 
but by regular practice he has progressed from slow and 
inaccurate reading at a speed of under two hundred words 
a minute to a reading speed of nearly three hundred and 
twenty-five words with an increase in comprehension above 
that required to maintain the balance of accuracy. His 
school work, which was of a generally disappointing stand- 
ard, has improved in all subjects and he obtained over 75% 
in at least two subjects. 

Student "B" on the oher hand, made good marks but 
found himself behind in his assignments because of his slow 
reading speed. In three months he has increased his speed 
by over 100% and is now able to maintain a high standard 
of work without undue strain. 

Student "W" was held back by self -consciousness where 
reading was concerned as he felt his ability was below that 
expected of him. The individual training has helped him to 
overcome this handicap and his work is now well above the 
average standard of his form. 

A tendency to vocalize each word made student "V" a 
slow and hesitant reader, but he has now cured himself of 
this fault and his speed and skill is improving steadily. 



During the term three wrist watches and a camera 
with flash light attachment were found in the School and 
have not been claimed by any boys. They were probably 
left by visitors. The owners should write to the Headmaster. 


It was regretfully decided that the June and August 
issues of The Record would have to be combined in order 
to reduce the pretty heavy charges to the School. We hope 
this change did not cause too much inconvenience to our 


Dr. W. S. Turner spent two days at the School in May, 
visiting Grade XII classes and talking to boys and masters. 
His report to the Department of Education gives a very 
complimentary review of the work done by pupils and the 
instruction they receive. "Stimulating", "Superior", "Ex- 
cellent", "Fine spirit of co-operation", are some of the 
terms used and we hope we may be worthy of this judgment.

The week preceding the "Big" Day was wet and gusty, 
the final Inspection Day practices being sandwiched between 
stormy showers under a cold, ominous, overcast sky. It 
was tactfully suggested that negative thinking on the part 
of the School, who had almost resigned themselves to a 
rained-out Inspection Day, was a contributing factor. Thus 
it was no surprise, after an afternoon of concentrated sun- 
shine positive thinking by the Cadet Corps, when the dawn 
of Saturday, May 11, broke clear and sunny, heralding a 
perfect day. 

Promptly at 10.15 the Cadets proceeded through the 
"fall-in" manoeuvres and marched out into position on the 
campus, resplendent in their new uniforms. Though the 
more modern and vastly more wearable Eisenhower type 
battle jackets were welcomed by those who had to march, 
there was somehow missing the old flash and sharpness 
provided in past years by the blazing tunic buttons and 
gaiters. The sight was a stirring one nonetheless. 

When Air Vice Marshal Kennedy had finished the formal 
inspection of the Corps, the cadets put on an impressive 
display of teamwork in their marching and drill manoeuvres. 
Midway in the proceedings. Cadet Sergeant T. R. Derry and 
Cadet Aircraftsman R. J. Austin received their wings, earned 
last summer at Flying School. The display was attended 
by a large gathering of parents. Old Boys, and friends of 
the School. 


Following this, the Cadet Band, led by Cadet Flight 
Sergeant Adam Saunders, put on a very splendid show, 
which was agreed by all to be one of the best ever seen at 

Then the long-anticipated Inter-House Drill Competi- 
tion took place. This year Brent House was led by Cadet 
Flight Lieutenant Dave Cape and Bethune by Cadet Flight 
Lieutenant Ian Binnie. As the Houses displayed their 
marching prowess on the ground, a formation of R.C.A.F. 
T-33 jets put on a spectacular show overhead. The scores 
of both Houses were so close that the Judging Officers had 
to decide the issue by testing the cadets with questions. 
After the Panoramic Picture had been taken, it was an- 
nounced that Brent House had been awarded the trophy. 
Congratulations, men of Brent! 

After an intermission for dinner, the day's festivities 
continued with the annual gym show. The High Bar, Parallel 
Bar, and Box-Horse teams co-ordinated their muscles to 
good advantage in amazing the spectators, while the Physical 
Training and Boulden House groups put on excellent per- 

While the Headmaster held his reception at the Lodge 
for the visitors, the boys and their enamoured partners 
enjoyed a "coke" party over at the Tuck shop, where enter- 
tainment was provided by the School Orchestra. 

As the waning sun cast lengthening shadows on the 
day's "battlefield," the erstwhile warriors adjourned to the 
Gymnasium for an Informal Dance. And so the weeks of 
hard effort came to a happy ending and a worthwhile con- 
clusion amidst the amorous music of Bob Gilbert and his 
record player, flashing flying-saucers, swaying planets, and 
romantic looking spacemen complacently smiling down from 
the four walls of the dance floor. And while we're at it, 
congratulations to the Fifth Form Dance Committee, under 
the energetic leadership of Blane Bowen, on the splendid 
job they did with their lavish decorations, aptly entitled 



The School wishes to thank all those who helped with, 
and attended, the Inspection Day, the citizens of Port 
Hope for accommodating the large number of guests, and 
Mrs. Clark and her staif for the wonderful meals they 
provided throughout the weekend, despite the overwhelming 
number of visitors present. 



i^ DAY - 


SPEECH DAY — 1957 

The School year was almost over when the Speech Day 
ceremonies began. The greater part of the student body 
was eagerly anticipating a summer of profound leisure, the 
members of the Leaving Class walked the halls with sober 
countenances as the realization of impending separation 
became painfully immediate. It was a fitting stage for the 
hours that were to follow. 

The opening act was the Athletic Prize giving on the 
lawn in the early evening. When this was concluded, the 
boys and visitors adjourned to Osier Hall for our annual 

Though, as the Headmaster explained, the shortness 
of the term, the recent preparations for Inspection Day, 
and the urgency of oncoming examinations, had prevented 
as thorough rehearsal in every phase of the programme as 
one could ideally wish for, the Choir, under Mr. Cohu, and 


the Glee Club, under Mr. Prower, provided a memorable 
evening of very fine entertainment indeed. 

To open the proceedings, the full Choir lustily sang 
the School song, "The School on the Hill." This was fol- 
lowed throughout the evening by other School songs and 
a few lively popular selections to stir the sentimental 
audience. The Adam Saunder's Quartet also provided a 
dazzling number or two for the "non-squares" among the 
listeners! The Boulden House Choir entertained us with 
"To the Iron Bridge in June," and "To Lakefield in the 
Morning," and the melodious Glee Club harmonized on the 
"Whiff'an Poof Song" and "Get Me to the Church on Time." 
The concert was fittingly culminated in a moving rendition 
of "They're Singing You Off." 

After the National Anthem had been sung, the concert 
having been concluded, the School cascaded down to the 
Assembly Room to see a Cloak and Dagger thriller entitled 
"Decision Before Dawn." 

This will just make next year's group anxious to go 
one better. 

The morning of the 8th of June dawned bright and 
crystal clear, as the concluding scene at Trinity began to 
take the stage. 

The annual Leaving Service in the Chapel was colour- 
ful and stirring, and included a most ambitious rendition 
of the "Te Deum" by the choir. As the Chapel seating 
capacity could not possibly accommodate the number of 
guests present, loudspeakers carried the service out to the 
lawns where worshippers sat in the glory of the morning 

Following this service the Prize Giving began on the 
terrace with Mr. Argue Martin, Q.C., as Chairman. The 
Headmaster then gave his report covering the School year. 
A large number of Gvoernors was present. Then came 
the guest of honor, General Sir Neil Ritchie, whose speech 
was very amusing to begin with and then settled into some 
very sound and serious advice. His speech is published 


in full in this issue of the Record. The formal presentation 
of the prizes followed and Dave Sutton, Head Boy for 
1957, and Rusty Dunbar, Terry Hall, and David Cape, 
associate holders of the Bronze Medal, are to be con- 
gratulated on their well deserved awards. 

Following the presentation and the National Anthem, 
the gathering was treated to a delectable buffet lunch. 

With the shaking of hands, and the voicing of heart- 
felt good wishes, good-byes were said to those who would 
not be returning and to those who might be, and with the 
disappearance of the last shining automobile over the 
horizon, the Senior Matric candidates reluctantly shuffled 
back to their books and the arduous task ahead. 


G.B.E., K.C.B., D.S.O., M.C., 


There are, I suspect, two reasons which may have 
prompted Dr. Ketchum in having approached me to present 
the prizes today. 

First: — It has come to me on good authority that at 
prize-giving last year His Excellency the Governor General 
set up a record for brevity in prize-day addresses. Being a 
soldier, and soldiers having the reputation of saying what 
they have to say as quickly as decently possible, your Head- 
master no doubt has hopes that I will continue in the tradi- 
tion established by His Excellency in 1956. Of course every 
school likes to create records and if the T.C.S. prize-day 
technique of record making is to continue, might I suggest 
to Dr. Ketchum that the time may come when he must in- 
voke the aid of the Royal Navy — the senior and the silent 
service. I feel confident that the Navy could, if tradition 
prevails, set up a brevity record that would seldom, if 
indeed ever, be broken. 

Secondly: — Dr. Ketchum must by some means — perhaps 
he is blessed with a form of "second sight," — have discovered 


that I never won a prize for work at all during my school 
life. So, with that background, I would be sympathetic to- 
wards — have some common bond with — those who are not 
receiving prizes today. Anyhow the vast majority of you 
present here this morning join me in the non-prize-winning 

However, before going further, I congratulate all of 
you who by your hard work and endeavours, have won prizes 
this term. I congratulate you collectively now and will do 
so individually at the presentations. 

Naturally the majority do not win prizes at schools, 
but believe me this does not in any way justify sitting 
smugly back and making no effort to do so. After all, it is 
effort that counts in life, either in the life of a Nation, a 
Community, or in the lives of individuals. Do not please 
misunderstand me about this. 

Success, mediocrity, or failure at school is in fact the 
pattern of what will face you in later life. 

Just as not all can win prizes at school so, equally, 
not all can later achieve greatness — the prize that the future 
holds in store. There are amongst you here some upon whose 
shoulders will descend the task of moulding the destinies 
of this Nation of Canada and the consequent attainment of 
high office and responsible leadership. Not all of you will 
win fame as leaders, yet assuredly some of you will do this. 
Who these will be depends on many things. Amongst these 
perhaps one might mention moral courage, dogged determ- 
ination and refusal to accept as final, disappointments and 
defeats. All these demand effort and every single one of 
you here can develop these characteristics. Whether you 
achieve this or not rests with you, each and every one of 
you, individually. 

Leadership is needed amongst the people of any coun- 
try, and perhaps the more so in one like Canada in lier rcipid 
expansion and development. Because of this, the demand 
for leadership in every form, and on every level, will be 
great in the years that lie immediately ahead. What terrific 


opportunities lie before you all in this sphere, and what a 
chance you Canadians of this generation have. Whatever 
you decide is to be your career I suggest to you that you 
should, as a background, always strive to do what you be- 
lieve to be in the best interests of this great country of 
yours, not what necessarily you calculate is most in your 
own interests. 

Worthwhile achievement — when you can say to your- 
self "I'm proud of having achieved this" — invariably de- 
mands some degree of self sacrifice or unselfishness. We 
exist in relative security today largely because of the 
sacrifices of those who have gone before — ^those who have 
given much, and often their all, in the cause of securing 
our country. Sometimes we are prone to forget the extent 
of the sacrifice that has been paid. Perhaps you will allow 
me to give you one illustration drawn from 1914. As you 
will know, that was the year of the start of the First World 
War. At the time I was a Cadet at the Royal Military 
College at Sandhurst, in England. In December of that year, 
together with five others, I was gazetted a Second Lieutenant 
in The Black Watch. The war lasted for four years. At the 
end of it, of those six of us who joined the Regiment to- 
gether, four were dead, one had lost a leg, and I was the 
only one left. 

When I look back to the cricket team at my school in 
the season of 1914, the whole lot lost their lives except me 
and one other. There were only three of us left out of the 
1913 football side. This may give you some appreciation 
of the extent of this sacrifice. 

One wonders why the young went forth then to die. 
It was this I think. We were brought up to feel that we 
had inherited from those who had gone before a sacred 
trust, and that we belonged to a team charged with the 
defense of the rights of free men. This outlook was, I 
honestly think, very largely fostered by the playing of team 
games at schools where one learned to work as a member 
of a team, to forego the playing of the game purely for 


If you hope to contribute anything satisfactory and 
worthwhile in Hfe, stick to that spirit. 

One can go a long way back before 1914 to hear a 
similar expression of views. It is said that the great Duke 
of Wellington when he was asked how the Battle of Water- 
loo was won replied that it was won on the playing fields 
of Eton. What he meant, of course, was that the spirit 
bred and engendered on those playing fields had produced 
the leaders and taught the background of team-work that 
made the British Army of 1815 such a formidable opponent 
and such a successful fighting machine. 

You, here at T.C.S., have just as good playing fields 
as they have at Eton. You are brought up in a great tradi- 
tion, with a knowledge of team work and in the realization 
that without every member pulling his weight success will 
not be achieved. You have a heritage in your School and 
in your country. 

To those of you who are leaving here for the last time, 
I wish every good fortune in the future. Go forth into the 
outer world taking with you the great tradition this School 
has taught. Go in the knowledge too that those who follow 
in your footsteps here will continue in that tradition and 
will add to its lustre, just as I am sure you have done. 

In closing I would charge you all to guard this heritage 
fearlessly, unselfishly and strive in all your actions to 
further the interests of your Native Land rather than purely 
your own. 


Speech Day, June 8th, 1957 

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

On Monday next Canadians are going to have the 
privilege of choosing who are to govern them and who are 
to represent them in open discussion of the country's affairs, 
called Parliament. We have become so used to having this 
opportunity, given to us by our Mother Country, that we 


rarely realize it is a privilege, and one enjoyed by only a 
small proportion of the world's people. It is one of the 
many advantages of democractic liberty and one which must 
be cherished and treasured, for it was won after great trial, 
and it has been preserved twice in this century against 
the fury and bestial cruelty of ambitious men. 

Our Guest of Honour to-day, General Sir Neil Ritchie, 
is one of that small group of Army commanders who faced 
appalling odds in the spring of 1940 and by their leadership 
made Dunkirk a name to be remembered for all time. Be- 
cause the larger part of the British forces were safely re- 
turned to England, the free world was enabled to stay in 
the battle and eventually to conquer that unprecedented 
threat to all liberty loving men. Dunkirk and St. Valery were 
just seventeen years ago, the Battle of Britain seventeen 
years ago and a few months. It was a surprise to me to realize 
that there are only a few boys in this School who were 
born when the Second World War began in September 1939 ; 
so quickly do the years pass, and sometimes the new 
generation is not given a clear picture of the issues at stake 
and the incomparable bravery and self-sacrifice of their 
fathers and fore-fathers. Last Sunday we were recalling 
the gallant service of fourteen hundred of our own Old 
Boys and a winner of the Victoria Cross was here to speak 
to us. 

General Ritchie is one of those gallant officers who 
stood in the front line in the two most fearful crises of 
modern times ; as a junior officer in 1914 in the Black Watch 
he led his men in the terrible trench warfare of the day, 
serving in France, Mesopotamia and Palestine. At the end 
of the war he was a Captain and had been awarded the 
Distinguished Service Order and the Military Cross for 
exceptional bravery and leadership. 

In 1940 he commanded the 51st Highland Division in 
France and Belgium. Lord Alanbrooke, in command of the 
British Forces and later Chief of the General Staff, whose 
recent book 'The Turn of the Tide' is such a fascinating 


story, mentions General Ritchie many times and speaks of 
his most valuable and reliable help during those days when 
whole populations and many of our Allied armies were in 
utter confusion, alarm and terror, trying to save them- 
selves from the frightening and massive destructive power 
of the German Nazi Armies. General Ritchie, with a few 
other commanders, met one appalling situation after an- 
other and most of the British Forces were eventually saved, 
though his own Division, the 51st, was put in an impossible 
situation by the leader of the French Forces and suffered 
terrible losses. General Ritchie then became deputy Chief 
of Staff of the Middle East and in 1941 was given command 
of the 8th Army in Libya, at a time when that army was 
almost totally without effective striking power in the form 
of tanks and other weapons. He later commanded the 12th 
Army Corps in France, and after the war became Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Far East Land Forces. He repre- 
sented his country in Washington on the Joint Services 
Mission and was appointed an Aide de Camp to His Majesty. 
France, the United States, Holland, and Poland bestowed 
their highest honours on him and the King conferred on 
him the Knight Grand Cross of the British Empire and 
constituted him a Knight Commander of the Bath for his 
gallant and invaluable services to the people of the Com- 
monwealth and free peoples everywhere. 

We salute General Sir Neil Ritchie, G.B.E., K.C.B., 
D.S.O., M.C., and give him in our inadequate words an 
expression of our admiration and a most sincere welcome 
to Trinity College School. 

Again the School family has lost many senior Old Boys 
and Governors during the year: we think particularly of 
Colonel John Langmuir, for so long Secretary and Chair- 
man of the Governing Body, of Geoff O'Brian, Dr. Robert 
Armour, Mr. Philip DuMoulin, Air Marshal Billy Bishop, 
V.C, and many others. Just recently Charles van Strau- 
benzee, son and grandson of Army officers, was killed 
serving with the U.N.E.F. in Egypt, and Garry Dalgleish 


died while at the University. The School will always re- 
member these sons of the Hill and devoted supporters. 

School years come and go and every one seems to have 
its own character. There are now over 4,600 boys on our 
list and so many of them have brought renown to them- 
selves and their School over the ninety-two years of our 

Last autumn Mr. McFarlane and I visited Old Boys in 
the principal cities of the West and enjoyed every minute 
of our trip. We have had over five hundred boys from Win- 
nipeg and the West and we were encouraged and inspired 
to find so many of them remembering the School with 

There have been notable gatherings of Old Boys in 
Montreal and Toronto and last month Mrs. Ketchum and 
I spent three delightful days in Montreal, meeting members 
of the Guild, Old Boys, Governors, and Parents. The annual 
meeting of the Toronto Ladies' Guild was one of the best 
in its 54 years' history, and we are always indebted to 
the mothers for the wonderful help they give to the School 
year by year. 

The T.C.S. Fund, instituted a year ago, has made re- 
markable progress and there seems to be reason for ex- 
pecting that the total amount given or expected will reach 
a million dollars by the end of this calendar year. We shall 
always be deeply indebted to you and so many others who 
have contributed generously to the Fund and given such 
valuable assistance in the organization and implementing 
of the campaign. These Independent Schools will not be 
able to carry on and do the work expected of them unless 
they have other sources of income in addition to fees as 
our sister schools have in England and the United States. 
T.C.S. is now assisting very materially some forty boys 
of real promise whose parents could not meet the full fees: 
it is a privilege to be in a position to give such help and 
I feel that the Independent Schools have an obligation to 
make it possible for such boys to have the benefits of a 


boarding School education, an obligation to the country 
at large. New and valuable Bursaries have been given or 
are being given by Mrs. Pennyman Worsley, in memory 
of her husband, by Mrs. Brainerd, Sr., Mrs. Thomas Brainerd, 
and Mrs. Harris in memory of Tommy Brainerd, by Mr. 
G. S. Osier in memory of Susie Osier, and Mrs. Willa Gundy 
and Mr. Dudley Dawson in memory of Mr. Dudley Dawson. 

It is encouraging and gratifying to see how many 
recent T.C.S. boys are doing particularly well at uni- 
versities and in their careers: some of these are mentioned 
in the prize lists. It is not always realized that well over 
80 Tr of all the boys who enter our Senior School go on 
to Universities or other higher education: that is about 
70% more than the similar group at High Schools and Col- 
legiates. This year we have boys at some thirty-five different 
universities in several countries. 

We are all going to miss several masters who are 
leaving us this year: Mr. Landry has been with us eight 
years and has done excellent work in every way. He is 
now going to study for his Ph.D. at McGill. Mr. Molson 
returned to the Staff three years ago to settle down once 
again at T.C.S. but he has been appointed Headmaster of 
Stanstead College: we congratulate him and give him our 
warmest good wishes. 

Mr. Brown has made a distinguished contribution on 
the Mathematics staff in two short years and is now leaving 
to take his degree at McGill. Mr. Perry is becoming an 
Instructor in the Navy. We do thank these masters for 
all they have done to help the boys in their care: Mr. 
Landry and Mr. Brown, going to do university work, we 
should like to feel were on leave of absence and we hope 
they will be with us again in a few years' time. I should 
also mention how much we shall all miss the Molson and 
Landry families, delightful and charming members of our 

It is always encouraging to see Old Boys entering the 
teaching profession: this year we have had nine Old Boys 


on our staff and next year another Old Boy, Roger Kirk- 
patrick, is joining us. Altogether, nearly thirty Old Boys 
are teaching in Universities or Schools. The number of Old 
Boys entering the Ministry and Medicine has also increased 
in recent years and we know what invaluable work they 
can do in those professions. 

Mrs. Wilson in the Senior School and Mrs. Christie in 
Boulden House have been indispensable in their work as 
Matrons and we are truly indebted to them. Mrs. Burns, 
my secretary for over six years, had to go on a reduced 
time-table two months ago and has now resigned as 
secretary. She has done expert and unending work and 
though the volume has increased at least fifty percent since 
she came she has kept up with it in a remarkable way. We 
shall always be grateful to her and hope that she will be 
available to help us out from time to time. 

Sometimes I wonder if we are not all in the danger 
of being almost suffocated by an ever increasing daily 
wave of wood pulp in the form of paper and ink. One way 
or another we must do our utmost not to become slaves 
to the typewriter and to meetings and especially in schools 
to remember that the really important work is personal 
and individual. 

Our new heating plant was finished in the autumn and 
has functioned most efficiently. Mr. Hall's help was in- 
valuable in that connection. We are now planning additional 
housing for boys to the East of Brent House and next 
September we hope to say good-bye once and for all to 
our overflow quarters. We are also looking forward to 
having more housing for masters in the buildings, and in 
separate houses, but the latter cannot be constructed im- 
mediately. Since the end of the War wc have been enabled 
to add the new Tuck building, the new Rink, given by Mr. 
George McCullagh, the Memorial Chapel, the new Library, 
the new Kitchen wing and equipment, two Masters' Houses, 
the new Heating Plant, and much reconstruction to exist- 
ing buildings. 


Last summer Trinity Camp was again run most suc- 
cessfully for less privileged boys from the cities and this 
year's Pat Moss committee has made excellent preparations 
for another camp. Mr. Gordon, who did so well last sum- 
mer, cannot be in charge this year because of illness and 
Mr, Angus Scott has nobly taken on the direction of that 
most worthwhile undertaking. Over four hundred and fifty 
dollars has been contributed by the boys and masters to 
the expenses of this camp. 

Three hundred dollars was given toward the assistance 
of Hungarian refugees, and we have had a young medical 
student from Budapest living at the School for nearly two 
months. We have all been impressed by his character and 
personality as well as by his facility in English and he 
has made many friends among the boys. 

When the prizes are being given you will realize that 
this year has been a very successful one. We have had 
better students in the VI Form than in most years, the 
level of scholarship has been good but could be better in 
most other forms, the athletic and club activities have 
been carried on well, indeed, three of our teams, the foot- 
ball, hockey and swimming teams, ended their seasons at 
the top of the heap, the Swimming Team being undisputed 
champions, and the Football and Hockey tieing with St. 
Andrew's and Upper Canada respectively. The Play and 
Boulden House Pantomime were unusually well acted and 
staged; the Choir has had new triumphs; Dr. Spencer has 
done most important and extremely helpful work in our 
new remedial reading department, many boys learning for 
the first time that they can read much more quickly and 
more accurately. Boys have taken out twice as many books 
from the Library, an average of ten each, and much praise 
must go to Mr. Gordon and his assistants. The Cadets kept 
up the high standard set since 1866, and two boys, Hutcliln- 
son and Levedag, won Queen's Silver Medals for shooting; 
two others, Austin and Derry won Air Cadets pilot's Wings. 
The Hockey Team, under Hall and Cape, took part in the 


Lawrenceville Tournament at Princeton with seven American 
schools, being defeated in the final game 3-2 by St. Paul's 
School. We have already been invited to go again next 
December to represent Canada. 

Boulden House has had another good year and I wish 
to pay special tribute to Mr. Charles Tottenham, the Prin- 
cipal. He has been on the staff of T.C.S. now for twenty 
years and during every one of those twenty years we have 
realized how extremely fortunate we are as a School to 
have him in such a responsible post. Long may he and 
his family continue at the School. 

The examinations for entry to the Senior School were 
written in March, earlier by many weeks than ever before, 
but boys are being entered now in many cases years before 
they will come to T.C.S. The tests we set are more search- 
ing and combine both achievement and native ability tests. 
Eighty-two boys wrote them this year from all across 
Canada, from the United States, Mexico, South American 
countries, England, France and South Africa. Seven boys 
won scholarships and others won bursary assistance. Since 
then applications have come in some numbers every week 
but both Boulden House and the Senior School have been 
filled since April as far as we can tell at present. 

Our objective is to find places for all boys of promise 
who have learnt how to take full advantage of the oppor- 
tunities offered to them. The standard of work done at 
this School must be a very high standard, higher than 
ever before, and at the same time we want boys of char- 
acter and widely varying interests. It is our purpose to 
search them out and by giving them excellent training to 
fit them for making a very real contribution to the life 
of this country. There is a danger of our Canadian lads of 
the third and fourth generation feeling that they can coast 
on their father's or grandfather's success. One reads the 
names in the first class honours and scholarship lists of our 
Colleges and sees scores of foreign names; the Principal of 
one of our great Universities has made the statement that 
the new Canadians are the ones who do the best work 


because they know fully the privilege of being offered 
higher education and the immense importance of it. Too 
many Canadian boys are content to enjoy life and get by 
one way or another. We must encourage and inspire our 
own lads to be hungry and enthusiastic for learning, and 
the early years are all important to that end. 

Before closing, I wish again to tell you how much we 
owe to the Staff and the Senior Boys of this School. To 
an extent not usually found in a school of this type the 
Senior boys contribute to our life by example and precept 
and by the student system of government in which we set 
such value. We are always working to the goal of self- 
direction and self-discipline which is of inestimable value 
in life and we feel we have achieved encouraging success 
in that endeavour. 

I like the simple and direct remarks made by the late 
Principal R. C. Wallace of Queen's University; "There are 
some elemental principles which I would ask you to keep 
constantly in mind before you: 

"Experience teaches us that only by sacrifice can we 
achieve; the measure of what we can get is the measure 
of what we are prepared to give. The world will become 
more humane, more decent and more truly spiritual to 
the degree and to the degree only that you and I and 
others cultivate decency and achieve a high spiritual life. 
No system in itself will work the miracle. It depends on 

To our Senior boys we are indebted for all they have 
meant to the School in this past year and we know they 
have had most valuable experience; may they continue to 
use their talents to the full, develop their constancy of 
purpose which always brings success, and be of some real 
service to their fellow men — Talents, Constancy, Service, 
T.C.S., and above all may they keep Faith with their high 
ideals, with themselves, their families, their country and 
the brotherhood of man. 

We at the School will often think of you and wish 
you well: may every good fortune be yours.

Moliere is a dramatist whose works are not often per- 
formed by school dramatic societies. In a way this is a 
pity because the great French playwright was a master of 
his craft and his comedy still remains fresh and lively after 
three centuries. Given adequate direction his "Le Bourgeois 
Gentilhomme" is well within the scope of most amateur 

Trinity College School Dramatic Society amply illus- 
trated this when they chose the Miles Malleson adaptation 
of this classic of the stage for their end of term concert 
last night at the School. Mr. Malleson's translation en- 
titled "The Prodigious Snob," was adapted by an actor for 
present day presentations. It sacrifices nothing of the wit 
and wisdom of the original. 

To be a success with a School cast the play requires 
intelligent direction by a producer content to keep within 
the limits of his cast. Mr. Angus Scott supplied this last 
night. In some respects he was over bold but his insistence 
that the play be a spectacle was much to be preferred to 
a wishy-washy performance. Mr. Scott strove to entertain 
and his cast succeeded in keeping a large audience of parents 
and friends in a continual state of amusement. 

He chose colour and movement as his mediums for 
entertainment. In this he was immensely helped by the set 
that scenery designer Mr. Philip Bishop had provided. The 


salon, if it could be called such, of M. Jourdain was a period 
piece while intelligent use was also made of the foreground 
of the stage in providing a Parisian street scene that was 
truly authentic. 

Mrs. K. Spencer furthered this transformation to 17th 
century France by a lavish display of costumes that could 
be faulted in very few particulars. 

The crowd scenes were well handled. The movements 
of a large cast about a small stage never left a cluttered 
up impression. The conferring of the rank of Turkish 
nobility on the unsuspecting Mr. Jourdain in the last act was 
a good example of this. The intricate pattern of dancing 
and sword play was skilfully worked out. The fencing 
lesson, too, extracted tons of humour without degenerating 
into a farce. 

The cast all joined in the conspiracy to entertain. The 
story of the humble tradesman who, having made his pile, 
aspires to become a man of quality calls for acting of 
exceptional ability in the title role. The society was fortunate 
in having just such a person in Ian Binnie. Upon him de- 
pended the fortunes of the play. His success in the part 
of M. Jourdain assured the success of the whole evening. 

The temptation to burlesque the part on occasion must 
have been irresistible. It is to Binnie's credit that he scru- 
pulously avoided this. Hence his Jourdain, while always a 
figure of fun, was never a caricature and at times evoked 
sympathy rather than derision. He let the vanity of Jourdain 
lead him into situations and relied on the natural develop- 
ment of such situations to extricate him. This quiet re- 
strained treatment was the right approach. 

It was not expected that the acting of the rest of a 
large cast would be uniform. The female roles were not so 
well handled. An exception to this was the performance of 
Ramsey Derry as Jourdain's practical wife and David Stock- 
wood as the saucy maid Nicole. Ted Ketchum and Colin 
McNairn teamed up splendidly as a master and servant com- 
bination and enjoyed one of their best scenes in their con- 


versation in the Paris streets. McNairn's sketch of Jour- 
dain's tailor was lofty in its contempt of the upstart trades- 

Others to impress were the dancing master and the 
music master, R. B. Hodgetts and D. M. C. Sutton, who had 
a vested interest in M. Jourdain's newly found prosperity. 
Count Durante (J. D. Barry) had his moments as chief 
cadger of the bourgeois' fortune. P. B. M. Hyde played the 
latter's intended while J. M. Braden was Jourdain's daugh- 
ter. The lesser roles of flunkeys, dervishes, dancing girls 
and musicians were well maintained. 

At times the pace of the production moved a little 
slowly, a common fault in opening night performances. 
However, one was left with the feeling that the cast's reach 
had not entirely exceeded its grasp and in choosing Moliere 
courage and enterprise had been amply rewarded.

Saturday, March 30, dawned clear and hot over T.C.S. 
It appeared that its only claim to fame was to be the 
beginning that morning of the Upper School test exams but 
great things were in the offing. As the exam was ending, 
sharp eyes in Trinity House noticed smoke curling up above 
the orchard down near Mr. Armstrong's barn. Then flames 
were noticed dancing under the smoke which was growing 
thicker by the moment. 

By this time, boys from the School began to gather 
out on the road to watch what appeared to be a fire designed 
to burn the brush between the trees. As they watched, the 
wind from the lake grew stiffer and the flames crackled 
more menacingly as they reached the road. When the Head- 
master, Engineer, and Bursar arrived with looks of conoem 
showing clearly on each of their faces, the realization that 
this fire was not apart of the regular routine was deeply 
impressed on all those present. As the flame and smoke 


began to march before the swift wind towards the hospital, 
all the boys, from Prefect to New Boy, entered the fray. 

This reporter viev/ed the conflagration from the hill 
behind the rink. Beneath were great clouds of billowing 
smoke behind which the flames crackled with their pro- 
gress. Moving figures could be seen appearing and disappear- 
ing and their shouts rose above the fire. Hoses from the 
hospital were playing water on the roof and surrounding 
trees as the flames approached. Then, fate took a hand 
and the wind shifted to the south, driving the flames away 
from the grove near the buildings — rather to the disappoint- 
ment of the "gallant" firefighters who wanted a real fire 
on their hands. 

Then all of a sudden the fire was under control. Only 
a few scattered flames flickered near the south fence and 
the Port Hope Fire Department made quick work of them. 
Everyone was left standing around on the hot, scorched 
earth, still looking for some more flames. At one moment 
the whole orchard appeared a mass of flames and minutes 
later all that remained was a burnt smell and rapidly dis- 
appearing smoke. Everybody was glad no real damage was 
done but were quite disappointed that the fire gave up the 
fight so easily. After all, there were still two more hours 
until lunch. 

Seriously, it was the first real fire alarm that has 
sounded through the halls of the School since the fire of 
1929, and everybody got some exercise and a good topic of 
conversation for lunch. The cause ? It was originally started 
by one man to burn grass but got out of control because of 
the stiff breeze from the lake. A most exhilarating morning. 


(A Searching Probe Into T.C.S. Musical Tastes) 

In a recent tour along the flats, (prior to the "No 

Phonographs Act,") the absence of classical music in all 

rooms was sorrowfully noted. Music in these rooms ranged 

from the extreme of the latest rock 'n roll, through dixie. 


calypso, romantic jazz, down to one square who was listen- 
ing to "My Fair Lady." I therefore decided to make a 
completely unbiased, unprejudiced, and impersonal report 
of the opinion of the School on classical music. 

"Do you not agree," I asked individuals at random, 
"that classical music is vastly superior in all respects to 
current popular music?" 

My first interview was with a well rounded person with 
receding curly black hair. He greeted me with a friendly 
and energetic "Howdy." He seemed to have a bad case of 
laryngitis but was very willing to discuss music. Un- 
fortunately, to each of us, music had a somewhat different 
meaning. Our discussion therefore ran on two separate 
planes and such musical personalities as Joe "Fingers" 
Chopin, and "Little Richard" Wagner were mentioned. 
Although it was not for him, my hoarse voiced friend did 
admit that "Classical music is here to stay!" 

Other interviews were less favourable and most opinions 
were negative, varying from complete disinterest to an al- 
most fanatical hatred. I did, however, find a few people 
who found classical music "... good to sleep to." 

I then turned from School opinion to School identifica- 
tion and appreciation of classical music. Results were now 
more gratifying. Several people definitely recognized the 
"William Tell" overture but confused the name with that 
of a mythical hero of the western United States. Beethoven's 
Ninth Symphony, the music he wrote for a pagan poem, 
was identified as a hymn tune. In the field of appreciation, 
several particularly co-ordinated individuals actually recog- 
nized rhythm in the "Blue Danube" waltz and one cat with 
a cool beat discovered some in the "Bolero." 

When I inquired into the practical musical experience 
of members of the School, I discovered an extraordinarily 
large number of people who had taken some sort of music 
lessons, usually piano, at an early age. Unfortunately, 
most of these would-be virtuosi soon gave up a musical 
career, despite parental objections.

Having completed my comprehensive survey of the 
School's attitude toward classical music, I made the follow- 
ing conclusion. Classical music holds a higher place in 
School opinion than is at first realized. The reason for 
tending to keep it under a bushel is that many people have 
a fear of being labled "square." 

I therefore recommend certain guides to all those daring 
to venture into the vast and empty halls of classical music. 
Contemporary popular musicians are doing their best to 
bring the classics to the untrained ear. Rachmaninoff's Pre- 
lude in C minor has been liberally adapted by Les Elgart 
and retitled "Rocky's Prelude." Chopin's Nocturne in E 
flat is enjoying one of its periodic revivals under the title 
of "The Right to Love Again." For a piece of classical music 
that is pretty hot in its original form I would strongly sug- 
gest to all, the "Damnation of Faust."

Times have changed although modern fuddy-duddies 
who are endeavouring to retard the progress of civilization 
won't admit it! Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, and all the 
great composers of the seventeenth century still reign as 
the kings of music, yet a new phase of music has now made 
its way in the culture of our North American society. 

Jazz! The product of such towns as Chicago and 
New Orleans has become the foremost form of musical 
expression in both the United States and Canada. A new 
sound has been developed from chording and counter-point 
that is just as intricate as that produced by the seventeenth 
century counterparts of Stan Kenton and Kid Ory and other 
celebrities of what is known as The Jazz World. 

Jazz originated with the negro spirituals of the Vivil 
War period which gave to music a "beat". There is prob- 


ably no other way to describe thtis but in that modern 
colloquial term. Down in New Orleans in the early 1900's 
negro musicians began to interpret themselves through their 
trumpets or clarinets or drums until the Dixieland style 
portrayed by the fabulous Louis Armstrong and Eddie Con- 
don and various other groups across the country became 
famous. As this new sound in music made its way north- 
ward, a new interpretation was picked up in Chicago where 
there arose a characteristic honky-tonk played in the back- 
room dives during the '20's. Across in New York, Boogie 
Woogie was just another variation of this new thing, jazz. 

In the 1950's, each band or group endeavoured to dis- 
tinguish itself from others by its sound. Back before the 
war, Glenn Miller introduced such a distinctive sound that 
nobody in the world could mistake who was playing "In the 

Likewise, Stan Kenton has his distinctive progressive 
jazz which involves extremely difficult chording to give an 
almost discord effect which is exciting to hear. Les Elgart's 
characteristic "swing easy" music is easily recognized by 
the dominating trombones in the background whereas Dixie- 
land as portrayed by Eddie Condon is counterpoint at its 
extremes. All across the United States and Canada great 
jazz artists are practically worshipped by admiring audi- 
ences. Good examples of these artists are those who have 
mastered drum techniques, such as Shelley Mann, Gene 
Krupa, Louis Bellson and Buddy Rick. 

No, I haven't forgotten Rock 'n Roll or Rhythm and 
Blues. Here is music also evolved from negro music which, 
when combined with hillbilly tunes, has produced quite a 
unique effect on audiences, especially among the teenagers 
of the country. It emphasizes the "beat" to a far greater 
extent than any other form of jazz, Elvis Presley, Little 
Presley, Little Richard, Fats Domino and other artists are 
opposed by all those who feel they have any degree of in- 
telligence within them, yet I feel they have produced some- 
thing that is possibly very different but also very intriguing. 


Jazz is the music I love and am devoted to. The music 
with the "beat" has been accepted and is here to stay. Those 
who are contributing to it are also contributing to a char- 
acteristic and original culture of our land. 

— Stu Adam, IV B. 


His foot was the surest, 

His mind in the clouds, 

Until, looking down 

For the thirtieth time 

A fleeting dread appeared. 

It seized his mind 

And so he stood, 

Heart beating wildly. 

Paralyzed ! 

The next step was safe, 

The next step was sure, 

It was filled with unthought-of caution. 

And so he slipped. 

His ankle like rubber 

Bent underneath him as he balanced 

Like a teetering schoolboy 

On the curb of a street — 

Then plunged, disappearing soundlessly.

At the present time, the countries of the world, as in 
the years before World War II, are taking part in World 
Disarmament Conferences. These conferences are not widely 
publicized mainly because nothing of any significance takes 
place at them. Indeed, the great significance of these con- 
ferences is not what is done of a positive nature, but rather 
the air of complete pessimism which surrounds them. The 


countries represented are quite distrustful of one another, 
and decidedly two -faced, for while proposing disarma- 
ment plans with one hand, they are building up terrific 
destructive armaments with the other. In this state of 
affairs, successful world disarmament is well nigh impossible 
and the continuance of the conferences approaches the 

But let us for a moment become wishful thinkers and 
consider the effects of complete world disarmament. Would 
there immediately emerge a happy, peaceful, and contented 
world? The answer is definitely NO! The result would be 
a dreadful and miserable depression. The terrific economic 
boom we are experiencing in Canada today is largely due 
to the pressure of an approaching war. Government spend- 
ings on defence are enormous. This means that a large 
percentage of Canadian raw materials is being used for 
defence, and a tremendous number of people are employed 
in the various stages of armament-making. Our heavy in- 
dustry would have to be geared to a peacetime market. Only 
recently, the chairman of a well-known aircraft company 
denounced in ringing terms the economic ruin that would 
result from any possible government defence cuts. The 
totalitarian government has a great advantage over the 
democratic one in this respect for they can quickly enforce 
such measures of adjustment after disarmament as are 

It thus becomes apparent that in order to have suc- 
cessful disarmament we shall have to plan ahead. A practical 
step that should be taken now is the establishment of a 
Canadian Disarmament Council. Its purpose would be to 
investigate thoroughly Canada's defence economy and to 
put forward a plan for the adjustment of many Canadian 
industries to permanent peacetime activities. This would 
require the co-operation of all these industries. Hence the 
council should consist of men representing the various fields 
of industry which disarmament would affect. Not only 
would such a council result in Canada being better prepared 


for disarmament, but also its very existence would help to 
dispel the pessimism which surrounds disarmament. The 
cost of such a council would be negligible compared to the 
chaos of a "disarmament depression", certainly far less than 
that of a Third World War.

The happy sun sinks at the dawn of night. 

Mosquitoes whine: moist fish-flies fill the air, 

The wintry dew falls softly on my hair. 

In my blankets I lie, in the half-light, 

Watching that mast, like a pendulum's tight sway. 

Moving among the half -lit stars up there 

In endless space, while on the deck from where 

I he, I see the day is lost from sight. 

The night lamp, creaking, swings from the backstay; 

The halyards smartly slap the half -lit mast; 

The anchor chains rattle instead of sigh; 

But, engulfed in a strange loneliness, I lie 

Painting crude star-sketches, until at last 

The angel-drawn vessel of sleep slides by. 

— Peter T. Wurtele, 4A. 



With the year drawing to a close let us glance at the 
results of our athletic endeavours. The School produced 
three Little Big Four Championship teams ; being first teams 
Football, Hockey and Swimming. The football title was 
shared with Saint Andrew's and the hockey with Upper 
Canada while the swimming was a complete victory, al- 
though Ridley was close behind us throughout the meet. 
The Cricket team this year was rather cramped for time 
and finished tieing for third place with S.A.C. and coming 
within a worm cast of trimming Ridley. The team showed 
good spirit and played fine cricket throughout the short 
season. First teams Basketball, Squash and Gym, although 
they were not champions, all had good seasons and look 
very promising for the years to come. 

There was a surprising number of new coaches this 
year. Mr. Lawson was all-successful in his rookie year with 
the First Football Team, and also coached Middleside 
hockey and Littleside Cricket which likewise did well in 
interschool athletics. Mr. Heard in his first year of teach- 
ing at the School took First Team Basketball and Middle- 
side football and moulded them both into fast potential 
teams. Mr. Massey coached the Junior Swimming team and 
although they were not constant victors, he developed a 


good number of boys who we hope to see on next year's 
First team. Middleside Cricket was taken by Mr. Wing, 
who also is a new master. 

We had a most successful Sports Day this year, as four 
records were broken on the field and three in track. Track 
this spring was limited to the inter-house meet (won by 
Bethune) because Inspection Day and exams absorbed the 
time required to train a good competing team. 

The inter-house sports this year were as close as they 
have ever been. Going into the last term Brent and 
Bethune were tied, and the House Cricket matches and the 
LeSueur Tennis matches were left to decide the victor. 
When these trophies were equally divided between the 
Houses, the interesting and surprising result of a tie in 
Inter-House athletics was reached. 

There were six Distinction Caps awarded this year, 
Terry Hall winning two for Football and Hockey, Rusty 
Dunbar one in Football, Colin McNairn in Football, Allan 
Shier in Hockey and Frank Stephenson in Cricket. 

That just about wraps up the Sports picture for 1956- 
57, except to wish the best of luck to all the teams in 
1957-58 and the years to follow.

T.CS. FIRST XI vs. U.C.C. 

At Upper Canada College, Saturday, May 25 

In their opening Little Big Four cricket match of the 
season, the First Team took on a very powerful Upper 
Canada club, and lost by the somewhat overwhelming score 
of 176-90. U.C.C. needed only seven batters to provide their 
total, and two batters alone hit the ball all over the field 
for 127 runs. 

Upper Canada College batted first. John Bassett pro- 
vided the hosts with well over half their runs, scoring an 
even century. Essaye and Grant followed in that order, 
with 27 and 20 runs respectively. Eric Stephenson led the 
Trinity bowlers taking four wickets for 36 runs. 


The U.C.C. bowling shone as they put the Trinity side 
all out for 90 runs, Frank Stephenson was the high batter 
for the School, scoring 27 runs, while Whitehead and Minard 
followed with 14 and 9 runs respectively. Grant led the 
bowlers for U.C.C, taking 3 wickets for 9 runs. To veil also 
bowled well for the College taking 5 wickets for 44 runs. 


At Taronto Cricket Club, Wednesday, May 30. Lost 101-97 

On the Toronto Cricket Club field the Trinity XI were 
edged out by a Ridley team in a very close game, 101-97. 

Trinity, being the visitors, opened the batting and 
began on the right foot having two out for 35 runs. Then 
they slowed down temporarily until the seventh batter, 
Frank Stephenson, hit out 48 runs and carried his bat. The 
rest of the team went down comparatively easily to leave 
the T.C.S. final score at 97 runs. Kitson and Poole took all 
the wickets for Ridley with Kitson taking six for 39 runs 
and Poole four for 35. 

When Trinity took to the field they put the hosts down 
like flies, taking five wickets for 21 runs. Then Kitson and 
Coy started to play cautiously and eventually between them 
they scored 49 runs, 28 and 21 respectively. More wickets 
fell and there were nine out for 91, six runs needed to tie 
the score. The last two batters pulled their team out of 
the tight spot as they walked into the bowling and hit 
enough runs to make the score 101-97 for Ridley when the 
stumps were drawn. 


At Port Hope, Saturday, June 3. Tied 147-147 

Five minutes to play. Saint Andrew's last man was in 
with one run needed to tie the game, the Trinity field was 
playing as tight as possible, then Harry Vaughn of S.A.C. 
placed a leg cut worth one run which brought Jim Wyse to 
the wicket. He hit the next ball hard to mid off — it looked 
like at least one run but Dave Cape picked it off the top 


of the grass and the team was out with the score tied. It 
was the first tie game in the Little Big Four since 1942 
when Ridley tied us at the Cricket Club. 

Trinity opened the batting and began losing four fast 
wickets for 25 runs. Then Frank Stephenson came into bat, 
and in one hour managed to hit up 56 runs before being 
caught out by Gray. Jim Hyland also added to our total 
with his 20 not out. The team scored 147. 

Saint Andrew's started fast, having four for 137. But 
bad luck was to follow and they were the same for five, 
six, and seven, and were 139 for eight and 141 for nine. 
Then with ten minutes to play Jim Wyse and Harry Vaughan 
together ran up six to tie the game at 147-147. Stronach 
was the powerhouse for S.A.C. scoring 65 runs in one hour 
and fifteen minutes. Ketchum made fifty for S.A.C. 

Gray was the top bowler for the Saints obtaining an 
average of 10.75 runs per wicket, while Whitehead and 
Hodgetts shone for Trinity with 7.22 and 6.0 averages re- 


Our Gym team this year had a surprisingly good season 
considering the age and inexperience of its members. Their 
season's record is a commendable one, three wins, two 
losses and a tie. 

The team this year was captained by Hugh Ellis, with 
Vice-Captain Derry, and was again well coached by Mr. 

Members of the First team were Ellis, Derry, Davies, 
Hugh Gordon, Colby, and Fred Gordon. Throughout the 
season Hugh Ellis and Chris Davies alternated between 
first and second place. Ellis took top honours at St. 
Andrew's, North Toronto and Oshawa, while Davies triumph- 
ed at Etobicoke, Oshawa (return), and in the Etobicoke 
Invitational Tournament. 

All but one member of the squad are due back next 
year, and we look forward to a very promising season of 
championship calibre Gym at the School next year.

FOURTH PLACE— S.A.C 3050 points 


May 21. Bethune Won 172—152 

On a sunny Tuesday afternoon the Bethune track and 
field team swept up 172 points to down the Brentites who 
came close behind with 152. Bob Wood totalled 23 points 
to lead in the senior aggregate while Bob Hart took the 
Intermediate, also with 23 points. Mark Meredith and John 
Braden tied in the junior division with 23 points each. 

This was a somewhat exceptional year with seven new 
records obtained. Wood upped the senior pole vault record 
to 10' IV2", and Bob Hart broke the intermediate event 
with 9' 1". Hart also broke his own javelin record throwing 
149' 10%". In the intermediate aggregate two other records 
were smashed when Peter Levedag threw the shot put 
38' 41/2" and Peter Lerch jumped 5'5Vi" in the high jump. 
For the juniors John Braden ran the 880 yards in 2.22:9 and

Looking back over the year we can be thankful for 
many things and most especially for the good health en- 
joyed by the School. 

In spite of some moments of doubt, we were most 
fortunate in our weather this term and were able to fit 
in all our matches, picnics and other such important events. 

Congratulations to our teams on Inspection Day. The 
Tumbling Team did a very good job indeed and the Club 
Swinging was well up to standard. The Demonstration 
Team made up of Forms lA and I was a change from the 
usual routine and performed well. 

Our shooting was particularly good this year and 
Barber is to be congratulated on winning the Cup. He was 
up against stiff competition. 

The First Cricket XI did a particularly good job and 
seemed to improve with each game. Both the fielding and 
the batting were above the average. 

A very good Summer Holiday to all members of Boulden 
House ! 


On Saturday morning, March 16, twenty boys from 
Boulden House travelled to Upper Canada College to take 
part in an evening of one act plays. The play chosen was 
entitled "Captain Scuttleboom's Treasure." Set on a 
pleasant, desert island in the Southern seas, this humorous 
play, written by Ronald Gow, is the story of a group of 
rough, tough but homesick pirates led by their captain, 
Ebenezer Scuttleboom (excellently played by C. J. Totten- 
ham), looking for a treasure which can only be hunted for 
on Midsummer's Day. Old-fashioned Scuttleboom is sud- 
denly overwhelmed by a group of playful schoolboys led 
by their scientific-minded schoolmaster, Mr. Fish (superbly 
played by N. F. J. Ketchum) , and is greatly disgusted when 


Mr. Fish and his boys, with the aid of modern instruments 
and a knowledge of science quickly find the treasure for 
which the pirates have been looking for seventeen years. 
They are soon, however, disappointed when the treasure 
turns out to be a collection of cheap glass beads and orna- 
ments. Taking advantage of the situation, Mr. Fish promises 
the pirates a free trip home in return for a course of science, 
mathematics, and a little English grammar. They all agree 
to this with the exception of Scuttleboom, and pirates and 
boys go, leaving Scuttleboom alone. The play takes a twist 
here and Scuttleboom is surprised to find that he has a 
new crew as the boys, who have given Fish the slip, return 
led by the black sheep of the group, Jones (also well acted 
by D. G. Shewell). The play closes where the boys promise 
to follow Scuttleboom, giving him a hearty cheer. 

The play came off very well after a good deal of 
preparation and rehearsal and was enjoyed by the audience 
as well as by those participating in it. Very sincere thanks 
and congratulations go to Mr. J. D. Burns, who directed 
the play and also did a magnificent job in making the 
numerous props and scenery; to Mrs. Moore, who did a first 
class job making the costumes; and to Mr. Gordon, who 
did a fine job with the make-up. Many thanks to U.C.C. 
for the use of their stage and for providing some well-needed 
refreshments following the plays, and a thank-you to all 
who helped make the weekend an enjoyable one. 

Congratulations to U.C.C. and U.T.S. who each put on 
a fine play, all of which made the evening a success.

Under the guidance of Mr. Burns, the Boulden House 
Hobby Shop has had a most successful year. Good work 
was done by all enthusiastic "hobbyists" and many excel- 
lent models were constructed. 

All shapes and sizes of replicas emerged; minute, steel 
Tractor Trailers ; sleek-hulled Aqua Skimmers ; trim Gliders ; 
Spad Pursuit Planes from World War One; Atomic Sub- 
marines and the medieval Silver Knights of Augsburg. 

A final contest in early April saw the exhibition of 
thirty models. Results of the judging were as follows:

Always changing, always moving, 
Diff'ring in shape from hour to hour; 
Then some weird mythical creature. 
Now a glistening silver tower. 

Sometimes puffy, sometimes wispy, 
Often a thick layer of grey 
That in its course smothers the sun, 
And blots out the light of day. 


They come from none knows where, 
Blocking out the sun, 
Bringers of rain and storm, 
Across the sky they run. 

— N. Campbell, Form IIBl. 


Just before the evening is come, 
I look out of my window, 
And see the red rays of the sun 
Pass over a house, stream, meadow, 
And gradually climb on a mountain 
Whose snow turns to a pink glow. 
The unique 


Its history is fairly brief. 
And it is a common belief, 
That once a young Romeo, 
Popocatepetl, was changed to a volcano. 
By an evil goddess 
Through a certain process; 
And his poor Juliet 
Really wept, really wept. 
And because of her grief 
She slept and slept 
And changed to the sleeping lady. 
Mount Ixatcihuatel. 

The rays begin to fade, 
And before a sombreness can be made. 
The sky becomes dark; 
And like the rays 
The majesty fades from 

— M. B. Sullivan, Form IIBl. 



To every person there should come 

A feeling that the work's not done — 

That beyond the bounds of our peaceful life 

Our fellow man is rent by strife. 

The fairest land is the darkest place 
For a man is despised for his shaded face; 
Some live by what the Communists tell — 
By a theory resembling the depths of hell. 

We all must fight their battles now 
That in the future we should not bow 
To the forces which will destroy mankind — 
The human heart and the human mind. 

Now we are free and should take the pains 
To free our brothers from their chains. 

— D. G. Shewell, Form IIAl. 


In the high speed of modern living, courtesy is liable 
to be pushed to one side as old-fashioned and unnecessary. 
Yet a few minutes' thought will show that the rules of 
politeness are just as vital and valuable today as they were 
one hundred years ago. Perhaps some of the stricter rules 
of etiquette are outdated and of little value but the basic 
idea of unselfishness is still fundamental. 

At school we are trained to be courteous to those in 
authority; in our homes we learn to be polite to our parents 
and older people, to other members of our family and to 
our guests so that when we emerge into the world, we may 
be prepared for our contacts with the many different people 
we are sure to meet. A courteous person is ready to meet 
most situations in which the less courteous individual would 


make many blunders. Courtesy can also save lives, for a 
courteous driver is generally a safe driver. In international 
relations courtesy is a basic requirement. A good diplomat 
is invariably a polite individual and the varied tense situa- 
tions that arise between nations can be often lessened 
through the use of diplomatic courtesy. 

Even in these few examples it can be seen that far 
from being obsolete the value of courtesy is unquestioned 
whether in our private lives, our relations with other people, 
or between nations on an international level. Indeed it 
may be truly said that courtesy is an invaluable attribute 
in all phases of life.

Contained in the forty-five mile stretch between King- 
ston and Brockville are the Thousand Islands, which are 
some of the most picturesque scenery in south-eastern 
Ontario. Ranging in size from one square yard to several 
square miles, these wild rocky islands, numbering over a 
thousand, lie in the St. Lawrence River forming part of 
the boundary between the United States and Canada. Used 
mainly as a summer playground, the islands attract many 
thousands of tourists annually, for they boast excellent fish- 
ing, swimming, boating, water-skiing and camping. 

The islands also have history; the notorious pirate, 
Samuel Johnson, had his hideout here, and a British war- 
ship entered the famous lost channel never to be seen 
again. There are, too, many Indian legends which stem 
from the area. Thus mystery and romance combine with 
scenery and sport, cottage and castle, making the Thousand 
Islands famous throughout North America.

When the light of day begins to fade, 
And darkness commences to fall, 
Out from his home in an ancient shed 
The night hawk glides, with all 
His keen senses alert, and directed 
At the woods and fields below. 

He circles above dark forest and field, 
Then, hearing a rustle below. 
He hovers, then swoops, intent on the kill 
Of a careless and noisy field-mouse. 
He's successful, his cry rings shrill. 
He rises and circles once more. 

— D. W. Cobbett, Form IIAl. 


Before this fabulous show can be seen by the people 
of Canada and the United States, it must go through a 
lot of training. The two training bases are at Ottawa and 
Regina. The training lasts from February until April and 
consists of two daily lessons for five days of the week. 

The Mounties, who are chosen for this job, must be 
between five foot ten and five foot eleven, keen, unmarried, 
in top physical condition, and of good appearance. Out 
of some five hundred recruits trained every year, only thirty- 
two men are chosen to do the ride. The full total is thirty- 
nine. They include the thirty- two riders, four substitutes, 
the officer in charge, a riding master, and the band master. 
For the past few years, Staff Sergeant R. R. Van Patten 
has been the director of this fine display. 

The horses are bred and raised at Fort Walsh, 
Saskatchewan. Here they are allowed to run wild in the 
fields until they are three. They have to be black, good 
tempered, and the right size. These horses are not pure- 
bred. Their mothers were German coach mares. A few new 


horses arc needed for the ride every year. This year there 
arc ten new horses. The last thing the horses are taught is 
to get along with music. The music gives the horses sharper 

The total time for eacii ride is twenty minutes; nine 
minutes trotting, eight and a half minutes cantering, and 
two and a half minutes lance drill. A few of the displays 
they do are the maze, the lance drill, dome, gates, star, 
and the Shanghai Cross. 

Staff Sergeant R. R. Van Patten says that it is better 
to have a simple ride done perfectly than to have a difficult 
ride done terribly. 

The Musical Ride was first shown to the public in 
1904 and has continued ever since except for the years that 
the two wars were carried on. The Musical Ride was pre- 
sented before the Queen on June 2, 1953, for the Corona-

This year's cricket squad started out with only three 
Old Colours but showed steady improvement as the season 
went on and the players acquired more confidence. 

Our first Little Big Four game saw some rather shaky 
batting by both sides. The fielding and bowling were reason- 
ably good. Upper Canada managed to squeeze out two more 
runs than we did. 

In our home game against St. Andrew's the School 
showed greater strength in all departments and won by 
some twenty odd runs. 

The final game of the season against Ridley at the 
Toronto Cricket Club produced our most confident batting 


of the season and, coupled with good fielding and bowling, 
led to a convincing win.

Mr. Paul McFarlane has carried on the work of the 
Fund and the Old Boys' Office for a year and is now leaving 
to take another post. We shall miss him and his family. 

Mr. Jim Kerr, who is well known to hundreds of Old 
Boys, is succeeding Paul McFarlane on July 1st. He will 
be given a warm welcome. For many years Jim was the 
most efficient honorary secretary of the Toronto branch 
of the O.B.A. and to all intents and purposes ran the Old 
Boys' affairs single handed and most successfully. He is 
now embarking on a much larger sea of detail and projects 
but he already has an insight into it through his previous 
experience and Paul McFarlane's assistance. 

Old Boys everywhere will give him their full support. 



Interest from the amount so far contributed in cash is 
being used now to support Scholarships and Bursaries, 
to help keep salaries up to the level of those at Ontario 
schools, and in some cases to exceed the level, and to in- 
crease pensions. 

During the past year some forty boys were given 
assistance and the number of Scholarships and Bursaries 
has been consider-ably increased. The Fund will not be in 
a position to fulfil its objective until a larger number of Old 
Boys feel called upon to support it. The six hundred Old 
Boys who have subscribed are giving vital assistance to the 
School at a time when the very future of these independent 
schools is threatened by the alarming rise in costs of all 

When T.C.S. was facing bankruptcy in 1935, seventy-five 
Old Boys and friends of the School helped Mr. Britton Osier 
to keep the flag flying and enable the School to continue 
the work it set out to do in 1865. 

Since 1935 fifteen hundred and more boys have come 
to T.C.S. and a larger number applied earlier this year than 
ever before. For sixteen years the School has not been able 
to find places for all who have applied. 

We are now building a House for thirty-six boys which 
will enable us to increase the numbers in the Senior School 
to two hundred and five boys. 

If Old Boys knew how much their contribution will 
mean to the future of these boys and through them to the 
future of Canada and the Commowealth, a much larger 
number would join the annual giving plan. Perhaps twenty- 
five percent of our Old Boys are contributing now, a very 
good beginning. But it is reasonable to believe that the 
majority of the fifteen hundred boys who have been at 
T.C.S. since 1935 feel that their education at the School 
has meant enough to them to make them hope others can 
have a similar beginning. If only half of them subscribe on 


the annual giving plan we shall have taken another long 
stride towards our grand objective. 

Will you be one of them?

Mr. W. W. Stratton was one of the first contributors 
and we regret that his name was left off the list published 
in the March "Record." Mr. Stratton has been a generous 
friend of the School's for many years. 


The Annual General Meeting of the Association was 
held in the Library of the School at 11.30 a.m., Sunday, 
May 12, 1957, during the Reunion week-end. The President, 
A. R. Winnett, was in the chair. 

On motion by C. F. W. Burns, seconded by E. D. B. 
Magee, the minutes of the last meeting were taken as read. 

The Secretary-Treasurer reported on the financial status 
of the Association. Current assets total $3,583.62 and 
liabilities $409.37, the latter amount being owed to the 
School, and covering cost of printing an Old Boys Bulletin 
and cuff-links donated to the First Football team. It was 
recommended that this amount be paid to the School im- 

Life Memberships 

At the meeting held May 13, 1956, it was resolved that 
the Capital Funds made up of Life Memberships would be 
turned over to the T.C.S. Fund. At this meeting it was 
further resolved on motion by N. O. Seagram, and seconded 
by W. A. Heard, that all Old Boys who had paid a life mem- 
bership during the years 1955 and 1956 be contacted and 
their permission obtained to transfer these funds. The Sec- 


retary was instructed to write these Old Boys and obtain 
that permission. This would involve an amount of $1,200.00 
— twelve memberships of $100.00 each. The money remain- 
ing in the account was to be left alone for the time being. 

T.C.S. Association 

Vice-President T. L. Taylor was asked by the President 
to explain what had been done with regard to the T.C.S. 
Association and its formation. A proposed constitution was 
presented to the meeting, with Mr. Taylor leading an in- 
teresting and lively discussion of what he and the executive 
had in mind. In brief, they included the following points: — 

1. All branches of the O.B.A. should be activated with 
proper officers and constitutions, leadership coming 
from the Central Association. 

2. Parents should be included in all phases of this activity. 
This would include parents, of both past and present 
boys. They would be automatic members of the Associa- 
tion, as are all Old Boys. 

3. A set schedule of Annual meetings should be drawn up 
for various branches, and the Secretary should attend 
all such meetings. 

4. A system of limited financial support from the School 
should be worked out to assist the local branches in 
their activities. 

5. Representatives of the Parents might also be elected to 
the Governing Body. The work that a great many 
parents had done and are doing was an indication of 
their continued interest in the School. 

6. Plans should be formulated to ensure that repre- 
sentation be effected of all branches at the Annual Meet- 
ing of the Central Association at Port Hope. A financial 
scheme should be set up to help defray travelling ex- 
penses for representatives from Western Canada. 

Executive Committee 

It was suggested by the President, A. R. Winnett, that 
rather than electing new officers as in the past, an executive 
be formed with power to name their own chairman and 


also to bring to a conclusion recommendations regarding 
the T.C.S. Association, with a view to having a special Old 
Boys' Meeting at an appropriate time in the autumn to 
decide the matter. On motion of A. S. Ince, seconded by 
W. M. Pearce, it was resolved that A. R. Winnett, T. L. 
Taylor and J. M. Cape be named to this executive. 

The Headmaster reported on his trip throughout the 
West, taken last autumn. Although the ground work had 
been done, a continued effort must be made to build up the 
branches and encourage their interest in the School. 
The Record and Old Boys' Bulletin 

The Headmaster led a discussion on the "Record," and 
explained that although it was decided a year ago that all 
Old Boys would receive the Record, serious thought is being 
given this practice due to the increased cost of printing 
the much larger circulation and the fact that most Old 
Boys read only the Old Boys' Notes. Next year the Record 
would continue to be issued to boys at the School, with a 
charge being made to any Old Boy or Parent who might 
be interested in receiving it on a yearly basis. As well, the 
number of issues a year might be reduced to three. To 
supplement this. Old Boys' Bulletins would be printed several 
times a year. S. B. Saunders suggested that perhaps a 
committee should be formed to study this situation and 
assist the School in deciding what the future fate of the 
Record should be. The Headmaster remarked that any 
assistance would be appreciated and that much discussion 
amongst the staff and students had taken place. 

The meeting adjourned at 12.40 p.m. 


The members of the Governing Body have suggested 
from time to time that Old Boys and Friends of the School 
should be politely reminded through the pages of The Record 
that the School could receive much benefit in future years 
if it were included in the bequests made in our wills.

His many friends were deeply sorry to learn of the 
death of Frank Stanton Mathewson in Ottawa on April 4, 
1957. He came to T.C.S. in 1902 and remained until 1907; 
for 50 years he had been a loyal Old Boy often visiting the 
School and helping our causes in any way possible. He was 
a Life Member of the Old Boys' Association. In his final 
year at T.C.S. he was a Prefect and always did well in his 
School work. 

He went overseas in 1914 with the 13th Battalion Royal 
Highlanders of Canada (Black Watch). He was wounded 
and received his commission at the second battle of Ypres 
in 1917. He was awarded the D.S.O. for exceptional gal- 
lantry and returned to Canada as second in command of 
his regiment. Between the wars he was promoted to the 
rank of Colonel, but in 1940 he reverted to the rank of 
Major in order to go overseas once again. He was again 
promoted to the rank of Colonel in England where he was 
in command of troops in training until he was invalided 
home in 1942. In civil life. Colonel Mathewson was an in- 
vestment banker in Montreal and in Ottawa.
