You  are  the  reporters  for  this  news  sheet  which  tries  to  keep  you 
in  touch  with  the  School  of  today  and  the  School  of  yester-year.  You  will 
see  by  this  issue  that  many  bits  of  news  came  in  through  the  summer 
months  ■ —  most  encouraging!  BUT  what  about  the  next  issue?  —  and  the 
next?!  Jot  down  anything  of  interest  you  may  hear  about  O.B.'s.  Write 
a  note  or  a  penny  post-card  to  The  Andrean,  at  the  School,  with  your 
news.  It  all  helps  to  strengthen  the  "ties"  that  bind!  You  might  be  sur- 
prised to  learn  about  the  number  of  reunions  that  have  taken  place  as 
the  result  of  a  news  item  in  The  Andrean.  And  of  course,  if  you  do  not 
keep  us  posted  about  a  change  of  address  —  well?!! 


At  this  time  last  year,  the  news  'round  and  about  high-lighted  the 
physical  upheaveal  of  plant  and  terrain  in  preparation  for  new  buildings 
and  renovations.  A  year  later,  it  seems  incredible  that  the  new  facilities 
already  are  an  integral  part  of  the  School  and  the  wonder  is  how  we 
got  along  without  them.  We  have  really  got  a  set-up  "to  the  king's  taste". 
It  would  take  too  long  to  describe  in  detail  all  the  changes  that  have 
taken  place  (You  will  have  to  come  to  see  for  yourself!)  —  but  here 
are  a  few  major  features.   The  old  Dining   Hall   (Upper  School)   and   Mac 

'ROUND    AND    ABOUT    THE    SCHOOL    (Continued) 

House  Dining  Hall  no  longer  exist.  The  former,  along  with  kitchens,  in- 
firmary, staff  quarters,  etcetera,  has  been  converted  into  a  boys'  residence 
—  called  for  now  —  "Fourth  House".  The  latter  has  been  turned  into  a 
new  infirmary  for  the  whole  school  (two  resident  nurses).  The  new  Great 
Hall  (dining)  accommodates  the  whole  School.  There  are  no  more  class- 
rooms in  Mac  House.  These  have  become  dorms,  common-rooms,  etcetra. 
All  classes  are  taken  in  Dunlap  Hall  and  the  new  classroom  wing  of  the 
Kenneth  Ketchum  Auditorium.  Classes  are  no  longer  held  in  the  basement 
(Geography  Room  and  the  room  behind  the  Little  Theatre).  Classroom  No. 
1  (old  Maths  Room)  is  now  an  Art-cum-classroom.  No.  3  (old  History  Room) 
is  now  equipped  as  a  third  lab.  The  new  Kenneth  Ketchum  Auditorium 
with  its  auxiliary  facilities  is  a  superb  addition  —  already  well-used.  The 
landscaping  around  the  new  buildings,  along  with  new  roads,  etcetera, 
has  not  altered  the  old  beauty  of  the  campus  but  rather  extended  it. 
You  will  be  impressed.  Naturally,  there  remain  many  little  things  to  be 
done  before  complete  rehabilitation  takes  place  but  to  those  who  were 
around  the  School  a  few  weeks  before  opening  day,  it  seemed  miraculous 
that  opening  was  on  schedule  and  that  everything  proceeded  more-or-less 
normally  (e.g.  Dunlap  Hall  classroom  renovations  not  completed;  chairs 
for  the  Great  Hall  arrived  at  5.00  a.m.  on  opening  day;  new  desks  for 
classrooms  arrived  two  weeks  after  opening  —  meanwhile  make-shift; 
etcetera)!  A  new  House  arrangement  has  been  put  into  effect.  Mac 
House  still  has  the  lower  forms  (grades  7,  8,  9)  but  each  of  the  other 
three  Houses  has  boys  from  all  forms  (Third  Form  up).  Upper  Sixth  boys 
live  in  all  four  Houses  and  have  assumed  more  responsibility.  The  whole 
of  Upper  Sixth  (32)  sits  at  the  High  Table  at  lunch-time  in  the  Great  Hall 
and  are  Table-Heads  at  other  meals.  Football  teams  show  promise  of  a 
good  showing  this  year.  Note  the  dates  of  L.B.F.  games  and  come  on  out. 
The  Stratford  production  of  "Macbeth"  was  attended  by  Third  Form  and 
up.  The  first  issue  of  the  new  literary  magazine,  "Script"  was  a  creditable 
effort.  Have  you  seen  a  copy?  The  Ken  Ives  have  acquired  a  house  on 
Old  Yonge  Street,  opposite  the  School.  (Ken  —  after  25  years  in  the 
same  rooms  in  Mac  House!)  The  Stan  Macfarlanes  are  back  from  Spain 
and  are  "living  out"  —  on  Yonge  Street  —  not  far  north  of  the  School. 
Bob  Laidlaw  is  chipper  as  ever.  Three  new  Masters  have  joined  the 
Staff  —  Gordon  Moffatt  ('26),  Latin  and  Maths,  Courtney  Stoate,  French, 
James  Mainprize,  History  and  French,  Miss  Betty  Kinch.  nursing  staff.  A 
few  weeks  ago,  the  Antique  and  Classic  Car  Club  of  Canada  held  a 
judging  rally  on  the  Front  Quad  at  the  School  —  interesting  diversion  for 
the  boys  apart  from  the  fact  that  four  football  games  were  in  progress 
at  the  same  time!  Never  a  dull  moment  'round  and  about  the  School!  — 
or  perhaps   it   depends   on   the   point    of    view'
