The Rime of the Ancient Editor 

(June 2gth., 1961) 

An ancient Editor 

preventeth a 



He putteth on 
the pressure. 

He pointeth 
the Moral. 

It is an ancient Editor, 

And he stoppeth one of three. 

'By thy ink-stained beard and blood-shot eye, 

Now wherefore stopp'st thou me? 

The Cabman's doors are opened wide, 
I go this very mom ; 
The C. & C. they do not wait; 
May'st hear the merry horn.' 

He holds him with his skinny hand, 

'Your Article!' quoth he. 

'Hold off! unhand me, long-beard loon!' 

But ne'er his hand dropped he. 

'The "Black and Red"' will have its stint. 
You stay, for weal or woe ; 
Care I, if to some readier wight 
Your Reser\ation go?' 

The Master he did beat his breast. 
But drew the pen he bore ; 
And thus spake on that ancient man. 
The red-eyed Editor, 

'He leaveth fast who giveth fast 
In things both great and small. 
He toileth best who giveth best, 
And in good time \vithal. 

The early bird it is, I wis. 
That winneth still the worm ; 
Henceforth your Article indite 
Before the end of Term.'

The enrolment at the close of the school year stood at 137 boarders 
and 96 day boys. This year shows an increase in the demand for space 
in Grades IX and above, which our present facilities cannot meet, 
and a decrease in the Lower School. The former situation can be met 
only by the building of the Science-Classroom Block, and it is hoped 
that, when the present difficulties have been overcome (for example, 
U.S. income tax), the essential funds will be forthcoming. 

With the exception of the Music Master, Mr. O'Kane, who left for 
New Zealand, Mr. Robinson, who spent only two terms here, and Dr. 
Bronner, who has retired on the orders of his doctor for reasons of 
health, we welcome back all the faculty, and at the same time extend 
a warm welcome to the new members — Mr. Derek Inglis, B.Sc. (St. 
Andrews), Mr. John Powell, M.A. (Cantab), and the Rev. Charles 
Blencoe, B.A. (London), late R.A.F., who has come to be our School 
Chaplain. During the year Mr. Graham Leslie, B.A. (Oxon), took 
Mr. Robinson's place to help us out while awaiting his appointment 
in another career. We were all very sorry that this was a temporary 
expedient, since, through his enthusiasm and practical interest, he be- 
came very much a part of the school even in that short space of time. 

During the year the school has been honoured by some notable 
visitors and speakers, of whom some have addressed the whole school 
on subjects of general interest, such as the United Nations Organiza- 
tion, while others have talked to senior groups principally on careers. 
We are extremely obliged to these gentlemen for their kindness and 
hope that they will visit us again in the not-too-distant future. They 
have included Mr. David Brower of Vancouver, Prof. Burchill of 
Royal Roads, Dr. Brock Chisholm, Prof. Emery of Victoria College, 
Mr. Hawkshaw of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Dr. Hugh Keen- 
leyside, Lt. -Commander Lawther, Mr. Rivett-Carnac, the former 
Commissioner of the R.C.M.P., Dr. Spicer and Sir Charles Wright, 
who journeyed with Scott on that tragic expedition to the South Pole 
so many years ago. 

The principal happenings of the school year are given in more 
detail elsewhere in this magazine, but in summary they may be listed 
as under: 

1. The day-long visit by the Lieutenant-Governor of British Colum- 
bia and Mrs. Pearkes. 

2. The start on the School Chapel. 

3. The revival of the Scout Camp by Mr. Mugridge and the be- 
ginnings of the Scout Hut. Incidentally, congratulations to Cree H 
and Hunter I, respectively, on representing the School Troop and 
a Victoria Troop at the big Jamboree in the East. 

4. The continued success of the Old Boys in the academic field. 

5. The extension of the school grounds through the acquisition of 
adjoining properties. 

6. The tremendous groundwork which has been done by Mr. Hugh 
Stephen and Mr. Ken Scace in the launching of the big Science- 
Classroom Block drive. 

7. The work of the Librarians, under Mr. Caleb, resulting at long 
last in the school's having a proper library, which, if supported 
in the future as generously as it has been by parents and friends 
in this past year, will become outstanding. 

8. The general improvement in the appearance of the out-buildings 
and the enhancement by the tubs of flowers, with which the 
Gardening Club has given us so much pleasure. 

9. The increase in the level of achievement of the Debating Society. 

10. The growth in popularity of basketball and skin-diving, and the 
tremendous success of the School dance organized by the XX 

11. The successful participation in the annual Religious Conference 
at the Annie Wright Seminary at Tacoma. 

12. The Incogs' triumph, for the second year in succession, in the 
League Championship. 

13. The decision to run our own 'Tuckshop', under a committee of 
masters and boys, which has already brought considerable profits 
to the Chapel Fund. 


14. The success of the contingent at the Vernon Cadet Trades Train- 
ing Camp, and particularly of Cadet-Sgt. King, who was awarded 
the Trophy for the most outstanding Cadet in the whole camp. 
There were, altogether, more than 1,100 cadets from Saskatche- 
wan, Manitoba, Alberta and B.C. at this camp, and King's 
achievement in gaining this award has brought distinction to the 
Corps and the School. 

15. The 'Wedge.' 

16. The many expeditions undertaken by parties of boys and masters 
throughout tlie year, and especially the European Tour, organ- 
ized by Mr. Caleb and Mr. Prowse. 

17. The discovery, by the party on the European Tour, of the cita- 
tion to Capt. Harvey in the book of the Canadian Expeditionary 
Force in St. George's Church, Ypres; and the arrangement that 
they made for a wreath to be laid on behalf of the school on his 
grave at Niederswehrh. 

Many \vdll regret to learn of the passing of Founders and Brent- 
wood Houses, and their replacement by Barnacle and Bolton respec- 
tively. In case there should be some who do not understand the 
circumstances relating to the change, these are, very briefly, as follows: 

In 1948 Brentwood College experienced financial difficulties and, 
being unable to continue alone, became part of University School, 
forming the nucleus of Brentwood House. At the same time Founders 
House came into being, and later Harvey House was re-opened. From 
that time on the School functioned under the House system — the 
same privileges being accorded the sons of Old Boys of both schools, 
and the Rolls of Honour being called on Remembrance Day in the 
Hall which the joint efforts of their friends and alumni had built. 

However, in 1960-61, a group of Old Brentonians formed a new 
association to start a new Brentwood College at Mill Bay, using the 
colours, crests, etc., of the old College. Since this would inevitably 
lead to confusion and misunderstanding, it was decided to re-name 
the Houses after the Founders of this school — so that we now have 
Barnacle, Bolton and Harvey — and no names more fitting could 
possibly be found. 


We are most grateful to Mrs. Ralph Mathews for presenting to the 
School a number of souvenirs of her husband's athletic prowess when 
he was a boy here, and also a number of books for the Library, among 
which is a complete set of 'Black & Red' magazines beautifully bound 
in leather and numbered Vol. 1 to Vol. 10. 

It is improbable that more than a few such sets are in existence, 
and the only set which the School owned had, for safety reasons, to be 
kept under lock and key and brought out only on special occasions. 

Now, through Mrs. Mathew's kindness, a set is available in the 
Library for any and all to read at leisure. 


It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mr. W. C. Ditmars 
of Vancouver, long a Governor of this School. It is some six years 
since Mr. Ditmars visited the school, but as he was then past 90 it is 
perhaps not surprising that his doctor had prevented him from re- 
peating that visit. Nevertheless his interest remained, and in his Will 
he has bequeathed a legacy for the foundation of a Scholarship in 
memory of his son — an Old Boy, Lt. -Commander E. S. Ditmars, who 
was killed in action in World War II.

R. W. J. Wedd receives a prize for Greek. 

The Lieutenant-Governor greeted on arrival by the Chairman of the Board of Governors, 
Mis. Timmis and The Headmaster. 


Speech Day was notable in that for the first time in the School's 
history the principal Speaker and Guest of Honour was the Lieutenant- 
Governor of British Columbia, and for the first time also the events 
took place out of doors. Both innovations were undoubtedly successful 
and, while we shall continue to practise the latter (praying always for 
fine weather!), we hope that the former has but set the pattern of 
events to come. 

It was a brilliant day in every way, and the welcome given to the 
Lieutenant-Governor was that to an old friend since, as Federal 
Member and, later. Minister of Defense, he had been a frequent 
visitor to the School in the past — an honour which we hope he may 
be able to repeat still more often in tlie future. 

In his address the Lieutenant-Governor stressed two main points. 

First, the need for independent thought and the will-power to stick 
to a decision once it has been made. 

Second, the need for leadership in this country and the opportunities 
which boys at this School have to develop these qualities. 

He illustrated his points with apposite anecdotes and, if the close 
attention of his audience was any criterion, there is no doubt that 
these points were driven home. 

At the conclusion of the Prize Giving, guests and boys adjourned 
for lunch in Brown Hall — before which a very pleasing ceremony 
took place. As is well known we have waited a long time for a portrait 
of Mrs. R. A. Brown of Calgary, the Donor of Brown Hall, and for- 
tunately it arrived in time to be unveiled by the Lieutenant-Governor. 
This was done amidst considerable applause, and the simple ceremony 
in itself added much to the enjoyment of the day. 

The afternoon was devoted to the Senior Sports, at which we had 
the pleasure of Mrs. Pearkes' company also. A full account of the 
events is gi\-en elsewhere, but we must say here that we were more 
than delighted that Mrs. Pearkes, with her customary graciousrijess, 
was able to distribute the prizes to the winners. 

Incidentally, Mrs. Pearkes has a very close link with the School in 
that her brother, Mr. J. U. Copeman, is an Old Boy of the 1910 era.

On 22nd. March, 1961, two boys, Keith Douglas Bradley Hook and 
James Ridgway-Wilson, were confirmed in St. Paul's Naval and 
Garrison Church by the Archbishop of British Columbia, the Most 
Reverend H. E. Sexton, D.D. 

The Candidates had been prepared by the Rev. J. A. Roberts, 
Rector of St. Paul's and Acting Chaplain of the School. 


Most of us must feel that a School without a Chapel is as a Ship 
without a Rudder; many of us now know that a devoted (and, here, 
anonymous) body of Masters and Boys is well on the way to recti- 
fying this condition where University School is concerned. 

The south walls now stand (most impressive do they look), and, 
in all, $10,000 have already reached the Treasurer (Mr. I. Mugridge, 
at the School) — the welcome gift of many responsive contributors 
canvassed by the whole student body. The effort has been so com- 
mendable that any praise would appear fulsome, but we must pay 
tribute to the expert professional assistance of Messrs. Tom McEwan 
and E. Logan, which has kept operations in the straight and narrow 
way, and we have a private predilection for those Day Boys who 
stripped and toiled incessantly in the heat of the Summer. The work 
is voluntary (it is impossible, for instance, to gain "credit" for '"deten- 
tion" thereby, nor has this been requested), but the new School Year 
has already seen labourers from many foiTns swarming over the site. 

Insuperable obstacles have been surmounted, but the absolutely 
impossible always takes a little longer, and we would remind Readers 
that only as further contributions continue to arrive will the building 
continue to rise, and the School continue the sooner to flourish in the 
shadow not only of the Flag but tlie Cross.

(as at August 31st., 1961) 



The 1st. XV enjoyed a full season, no less than 19 matches being 
played, ten of which were won, seven lost and two drawn. 

The side was well led by Rigos, assisted by Dykes as Vice-Captain, 
but only three other members of last year's team were available. For- 
ward the side was heavy but too slow, while behind the scrum Dykes, 
at outside half, held things together. As the season wore on there was 
steady improvement and after Christmas, as usual, the team went 
from strength to strength. They were unlucky to be beaten 5-3 by 
St. George's, and in the Shawnigan game rose to great heights to 
score a try to their opponents' penalty goal, having rather the better 
of a drawTi game. Their weakness lay in their tackling and falling. 
They paid dearly for these deficiencies in defence. 

T. J. Rigos, I. M. Dykes, B. M. Huston, D. I. Chapman, R. B. H. 
Cree, B. J. Phillips and B. A. Blair were awarded their colours, and 
the full side was as follows: T. J. Rigos (Capt.), I. M. Dykes (Vice- 
Capt.), B. M. Huston, B. J. Phillips, D. I. Chapman, B. A. Blair, 
G. D. Stene, J. B. Tassin, D. A. Angus, R. B. H. Cree, E. H. Dodyk, 
G. G. Murdoch, J. M. Palmer, D. O. Windrem and J. E. Mousel. 

The 2nd. XV were keen and quite a useful side, enthusiastically led 
by Monkman. They had a good season, dividing games with both St. 
George's and Shawnigan. Their best effort was the victory over St. 
George's in Vancouver late in the season. 

Regular matches were also arranged for the 3rd. XV, captained by 
Wilkinson, and the 4th., led by Watson. In both teams there was use- 
ful material, Wilkinson, Dobell and Mackid being particularly pro- 
mising. The 5th. XV also played a match or two. In this group Hunt 
was outstanding, both on the field and in his willingness to assist in 
matters administrative. 




In the opening game the School gave a display which was not with- 
out promise, though the opposition was inexperienced. The School 
won by three goals and five tries (30 points) to a try (three points). 

Both Phillips and Dykes scored in the first half and Stene twice 
converted from dead in front. Stene scored soon after half time and 
tries were added by Tassin (two) and Dykes, Phillips and Chapman 
(one each). Stene converted once and the School won 30-3. 

Dykes was the outstanding player, passing with judgment and using 
his dummy with effect. Chapman and Phillips ran hard on the wings, 
while Tassin had a good day in the centre. The forwards outplayed 
the opposition but were slow to heel from the loose and failed to bind.

Playing at home the School defeated Victoria High School by four 
goals and two tries (24 points) to two goals and a penalty goal (13 
points) . 

The High School were strong forward and a much more even game 
than the score indicates resulted. They opened the scoring early, when 
some good play in the loose and some hesitant School defence gave 
them a try under the posts, which was converted. Windrem opened 
the School account when he picked up a loose ball near the line and 
dived over. Stene failed to convert but was more successful with Rigos' 
try, which was scored when the scrum pushed over. Just before half 
time the High School drew level when Stene was offside and the 
penalty was kicked. 

The School went ahead after half time with tries by Phillips, 
Mousel and Dykes. Of these Mousel's was a very good one coming 
after a fine opening by Dykes and a timely pass by Tassin. Stene 
goaled two of the three tries. The High School came back strongly 
and were rewarded when some shocking defensive play, with Huston 
especially guilty, gave away a try near the posts. Goal was kicked. 
Windrem completed the scoring with his second try of the game and 
Tassin converted with the last kick of the match. 


The School were successful against the Old Boys, two from Van- 
couver, one from Tacoma and the remainder from Victoria, by four 
goals and a try (23 points) to a goal, a penalty goal and two tries 
(14 points). 

The game was of fair calibre in view of the inexperience of the 
School side and the normal lack of condition common to Old Boys 
teams. Dykes, Chapman and Phillips scored tries for the School in the 
first half and Abel converted on two occasions. "Chris" Pollard replied 
for the Old Boys with a try, but the School had enjoyed a wide 

After half time Stene scored for the School for Tassin to convert, 
and the scrum pushed over another try, for which Angus II received 
the credit. This was converted by Abel. For the Old Boys Calton and 
Beban scored tries, one of which was converted by Lund, who was also 
successful with a penalty goal. 


The College brought a reinforced 2nd. XV and the sides played in 
pouring rain to a 3-3 draw. 

A more difficult ball to hold could not have been found and passing 
was seldom attempted by either side. The College did score a three- 
quarter try late in the first half, and they appeared to be winning 
when, late in the game, from a line-out near the College line, a visiting 
forward was foolish enough to knock the ball back to his half. Angus 
II and Windrem were through in a flash, the former winning the race 
for the welcome gift to give the School a draw.

The School were defeated in Vancouver, scoring a goal (five points) 
to their opponents' two goals and two tries ( 16 points) . 

From the opening whistle play was very even, the lighter School 
pack holding their own well. The backs also looked dangerous on 
occasion, with Chapman impressive on the wing. After both sides had 
had their chances the School finally opened the scoring and, as usual, 
Dykes paved the way. From a scrum on the St. George's twenty-five 
he took a pass from Huston in his stride, sold a brilliant dummy and 
went straight through the middle. He was brought down on the goal 
line and from the scrum which followed Huston threw himself over 
between the posts, for Abel to goal. Shortly before half time St. 
George's scored, and the scores were level when goal was kicked. 

Dykes, who had been injured, retired at half time and took no 
further part in the game. Stene was taken from the pack to fill in at 
outside half, but this resulted in weakening the forwards and from 
then on St. George's were on top. The School struggled manfully but 
were forced to concede a goal and two tries. 

As a team St. George's were better together and were likely winners, 
but with only fourteen men after half time and without the services 
of their outstanding performer the School had really given a good 
account of themselves. 



A very even game saw the School successful against Oak Bay High 
School by a goal and two tries (11 points) to a try (three points). 

The visitors were keen and robust in the loose and some good play 
in this department saw them open the scoring with an unconverted 
try. The School soon drew level when Chapman crossed at the flag. 
This try was not converted and the teams changed over all square. 

The School improved after the restart and Stene put them ahead 
when the ball was slipped back to him by Sweeting and he threw 
himself over. Abel goaled with a fine kick. Just before the end Phillips 
completed the scoring when he crossed at the flag to finish a three- 
quarter movement. The School, playing without Dykes, had the better 
of the argument, but the forwards were not impressive. 


Playing at H.M.C.S. Naden the School threw the game away by 
poor tackling, and lost late in the play by a goal and three tries (14 
points) to a goal, a dropped goal, a penalty goal and two tries (17 

The School opened well and were soon successful when Chapman 
took Blair's pass to score a try, which Abel improved. Venture replied 
with a try and then with a penalty goal. Dodyk added a try for the 
School just before half time but chances were not taken and they 
should have been further ahead. 

Shortly after the restart the School scored again, this time through 
Rigos, following a free kick near the line; then a little later Dykes 
broke the defence with a fine dummy, and Stene, taking a difficult 
pass well, just reached the line. Neither second-half try was converted 
and the School led 14-6. Venture, however, now played with great 
dash and the School were forced to defend. This they did so badly 
that in the final fifteen minutes they conceded a goal, a dropped goal, 
a try and the game, 17-14. They were without Phillips, Huston and 
Windrem, but there was no excuse for their shocking defensive play. 


Playing away the School suffered a very heavy defeat, going down 
by four goals and four tries (35 points) to nil. 

For some time the play was fairly even and, even after Cree had 
been beaten by a change of pace on the wing and a try conceded, the 
School were still in the game. Murdoch outhooked the opposite num- 
ber and in the tight the pack shoved to advantage. In the line-out, 
however they were out-jumped and out-generalled by taller, more 
active and more intelligent men, and they were no match for Shawni- 
gan in getting possession. The result was that before half time the 
School were in deep trouble — 16 points in arrears. 

The heavy-footed School forwards stayed with it throughout the 
second half, but they were always second-best and no match for men 


who were vastly more experienced and yards faster. In this extremity 
the School backs could produce no remedy. They were outpaced and 
the opposition made merry in the centre, where the tackling was 
deplorable. The fact that they were lacking three regulars was no 
excuse for a very poor display. Chapman and Cree, the wings, showed 
that they could be dangerous when fed quickly, and Cole, virtually 
untried at full back, came through a harrowing experience with credit. 


The School were successful at Carnarvon Park by two goals (ten 
points) to nil. 

The School started badly and might easily have been a goal down 
in the first five minutes. The forwards were superior in the tight and 
the line-out but were lethargic in the loose, where they were con- 
sistently beaten. They improved as the game progressed, however, 
and some intelligent forward play on the left led to some good passing 
by the backs and a try on the right by Chapman, which Stene goaled 
with a splendid kick. 

After the restart it was all School, but the light became very bad 
and the referee wisely called an early halt. Just before the end, in the 
gathering darkness, Dykes sold a fine dummy and ran straight through 
the centre to score. Stene converted and the School won 10-0. 


This fixture was played at Royal Roads and resulted in a win for 
the School by three tries (9 points) to a goal and a try (8 points). 

It was a very disappointing match, the opposition being very in- 
experienced and primitive in their methods, and the refereeing charit- 
able, to say the least. The School were faced with a very difficult task 
in that they were out-roughed by a determined opposition who lived 
offside. Under these conditions constructive Rugby was difficult, but 
the School did not use their many opportunities well, and, when finally 
they were favoured with a penalty or two, they failed to turn them to 
account. Windrem scored the first School try from the loose and Rigos 
was credited with the second, when the scrum pushed over, but Stene 
failed to convert from easy positions. The score was 6-3 at half time. 

Shortly after the restart the School paid the penalty for irresolute 
tackling when they conceded a goal, and it was not until late in the 
game that they went ahead to stay, Phillips finishing a nice movement 
at the flag. 

Dykes was outstanding for the School, while Cole, who saved the 
game in the final stages, also had a good match. Stene and Cree were 
the pick of the forwards. 


The School were defeated at home by a goal (5 points) to nil. 
The High School pressed from the opening whistle and were re- 
warded in the first five minutes, when some gentle and ineffective 


defence presented them with a try, which was goaled under the posts. 
The School then awoke and the rest of the half was theirs. Twice 
Dykes broke the defence in the middle but there was nobody on hand 
to accept his scoring pass. The centres were ineffective and Chapman, 
on the wing, was given little opportunity to show his speed. 

Throughout the second half the High School ne\er once threatened, 
but they did defend splendidly. The School forwards controlled the 
game but the heeling was too slow against a defence \vhich marked 
very closely and tackled keenly. The School did everything but score 
and in the last minute Palmer crossed under the posts only to be 
hurled back violently before he could fall. So the School were beaten 
after having had 80% of the game — a disappointing result, but 


Placing on the new College Ground at Gordon Head the School 
were successful by two goals and two tries (16 points) to a goal (5 
points) . 

The School opened the scoring when Dykes made a penetration in 
the centre to pave the way for a tn>- on the left by Phillips. Stene 
failed to convert. A little later some orthodox passing gave Chapman 
room to move on the right and he scored near the posts for Stene to 
convert. At this stage the School were on top, and they went further 
ahead when good work in the line-out by Brannon, and some timely 
passing by Dykes and Cole, led to a try by Blair, which Stene failed 
to goal. 

With the slope in their favour the School were expected to do even 
better after half time. This they did not do. Some good play by Dykes 
led to Phillips' second tr^^, which was splendidly goaled by Stene, but 
the College were also successful with a try, which was goaled. The 
forwards rather fell away in the second half, packing badly and af- 
fording the scrum half little protection. 


The School were full value for their win over Oak Bay High School 
by two tries and a penalty goal (9 points) to nil. 

The backs, with the exception of Dykes, were not clever or thrust- 
ful enough to press home the advantage in face of sure and keen 
tackling. Chapman took the corner flag out twice and Phillips once, 
but it was a forward, Stene, who scored the first try from a loose 
scrum near the Oak Bay line. He failed to convert but was successful 
a little later with a penalty. 

The second half was a repetition of the first, with the visitors 
seldom looking dangerous but defending admirably. Dykes scored the 
final tiy, putting himself through with a fine dummy. Stene failed to 
goal and the School won 9-0. 



The School, playing away, faced a mixed 1st. and 2nd. Royal Roads 
side and went down by a goal, a penalty goal and a try (11 points) 
to a try (3 points). 

They started confidently and soon opened their account when 
Phillips ran veiy well on the left to finish a good movement and score 
far out. Stene failed to add the extra points. Throughout the first 
half the School were outweighed forward and outpaced as well, and 
cracks began to show in the defence. Angus I, who had started well 
at full back, was badly at fault when his clearing kick on his own goal 
line was blocked and a try resulted which was goaled. 

Royal Roads had the better of the argument after half time and 
soon added to their lead when Chapman failed to hold his man on the 
wing, when he had him well covered, and a try, which was not goaled, 
resulted in the corner. The School should have added to their score 
when Phillips crossed at the flag but failed to ground the ball, and 
Royal Roads went further ahead just before the end, when they were 
successful with a penalty. Once again the School defence had proved 


In losing by a try (3 points) to a goal (5 points) the School gave 
a fine display. 

From the opening whistle the School pressed and for some time St. 
George's were forced to defend stubbornly. Angus I, with tlie wind 
behind him, kicked well at full back, the outsides were adequate and 
the forwards were spirited and quicker on the ball than St. George's. 
The visitors weathered the storm and had their turn, all but succeeding 
when their wing was bundled into touch in goal. Toward half time 
the School came on again strongly but it was a scoreless first half. 

The wind freshened after the restart and St. George's profited by 
some very long kicks, which found touch at the flag. Each time the 
School fought back hard, but finally conceded a tiy near the posts, a 
very large forward, though tackled, grounding the ball in goal at full 
stretch. Extra points were added and St. George's led 5-0. The School 
were full of fight and reacted strongly, being especially threatening on 
the right, where Chapman ran with great power. Dykes and Huston 
were also very prominent as the School attacked strongly. St. George's 
defended well, however, and despite strenuous efforts the School were 
unable to cross. In the closing minutes they were successful when Stene 
kicked a penalty, but this was small solace for their 5-3 defeat in a 
game where once again their territorial advantage was wide. 

The forwards all played with spirit. Windrem had his best game of 
the season while Stene, Rigos and Cree all played fine games. 


Playing at home the School gave their best display of the season 
in an extremely fine match. Actually they scored the only try of the 


game and had a decided territorial advantage against opponents who 
had beaten them easily earlier in the season. 

The School opened very confidently. In the first five minutes 
Phillips made ground on the left, kicked ahead cleverly and gathered 
peiiectly in the Shawnigan twenty-five. At that instant the Shawnigan 
full back, also going for the catch, came across and a very nasty colli- 
sion resulted. Phillips returned after treatment but the Shawnigan 
player took no further part in the game. Play continued to be very 
spirited and mainly of a forward nature, the School pack fully holding 
their own. Shawnigan opened the scoring when, during a period of 
pressure, in the School twenty-five, Tassin was offside in front of the 
posts and goal was kicked. Following the tragedy the School continued 
to play most spirited football, but marking was very close and at half 
time Shawnigan still led 3-0. 

With the wind in their favour the School stormed to the attack at 
the restart, The forwards continued to play extremely well, Stene, 
Rigos and Cree being particularly prominent. Shawnigan were also 
well served by their forwards, particularly in the line-out. Neither set 
of backs looked very dangerous, although one movement in the 
Shawnigan centre was well stopped by Angus. The School drew level 
when Shawnigan attempted to relieve pressure by a very long throw 
in from touch. Windrem, at the back of the line-out, prevented this, 
and the ball rolled loose over the Shawnigan line, where Tassin was 
successful in the race for possession. Stene failed to convert from a 
nasty angle. The School backs now began to get the ball. Three times 
it was hurried out to Chapman on the right. This player made electri- 
fying runs on each occasion and once was brilliantly supported by 
Dykes, who took an inside pass almost on the goal line before it was 
noticed that the touch judge's flag was up. The School appeared to be 
the stronger in the closing minutes, but there was no further scoring. 

Both sides had played very spirited football and, while the School 
had had the better of the game, it must be remembered that Shawni- 
gan were one short for most of the match. A draw was actually a very 
fair result. 


The School were successful against Oak Bay High School by three 
goals and a penalty goal (18 points) to a goal and a try (8 points). 
Attacking from the start the School soon opened their account, Chap- 
man scoring on the right after all the backs had handled. Stene kicked 
a fine goal. The High School then had their turn and, aided by some 
shocking defensive play, scored a try, which they did not improve. 
Before half time, however, the School had scored again. Again Chap- 
man was the scorer and again Stene kicked goal. 

Shortly after the restart Huston, the School scrum half, was injured 
and took no further part in the game. The School, now with fourteen 
men, were not impressive, but definitely the better side. Stene kicked 
a penalty goal and the School led 13-3. Towards the close Dykes put 
himself through the centre with his dummy at mid-field and then ran 


strongly between the posts. Stene completed a perfect kicking per- 
formance from the easy position. Just on time an Oak Bay three- 
quarter ran through the centre without serious School protest and 
scored between the posts. Goal was kicked and the School won 18-8. 
While they had possession the School were easily the better side, but 
once again it was shown that a determined thrust at their centre 
could produce panic and disaster. 


The School were far too strong for Royal Roads 2nd. XV, winning 
by six goals, a penalty goal, a dropped goal and a try (39 points) to 
a penalty goal (3 points). 

The School were ahead 11-0 at half time through tries by Chapman 
and Phillips and a conversion and a penalty goal by Stene. Territorially 
the visitors had a distinct advantage. 

After the restart it was all School and they ran away with the 
game. Dykes scored two tries, one from a well-judged kick ahead and 
gather. Tassin scored from an inside pass by Phillips, while both 
Chapman and Stene also scored. Angus I dropped a goal from play, 
while Stene goaled two tries and Blair three to prove that kicking is 
not quite a lost art. The only Royal Roads success came from a penalty. 


The Victoria Old Boys, assisted by Mr. Wilson of the School Staff, 
defeated the School by two tries (6 points) to nil. 

The School, without Huston and Mousel, played very badly indeed. 
Windrem was no substitute for Huston and only Chapman was in the 
least degree dangerous. Forward the School were held by a make-shift 
but very hard-working pack. John Wenman and Ted Pollard, who 
scored tries, and Mr. Wilson were outstanding players for the Old 




RIGOS (Captain) — An experienced forward who played in the second row 
and was dependable in every phase of forward play. Led the side well 
and played the game in a splendid spirit. 

DYKES (Vice-Captain) — An excellent outside half. Essentially an attacker. 
His handling and passing were sound and his use of the dummy judicious 
and effective. Unselfish, and always did his best to keep the game open. 
His kicking has improved somewhat, but in general his defence is still weak. 

MURDOCH I — Lacking in stature but nevertheless a very spirited performer. 
\'aluable in the tight, where he hooked effectively. Rather slow in the 
loose and his tackling was weak. 

DODYK — His v^ast size made it difficult for him to fit into the scrum, but 
he performed creditably in the front row and was excellent in the line-out. 
Slow in the loose. 

PALMER — Another front row man, who excelled in the tight but was very 
heavy-footed in the loose. Keen and willing to a degree, and invariably 
gave of his best. 

CREE I — A good second-row man. Dependable in the tight and in the line- 
out. Quicker on the ball than most in the loose and a far better tackier. 
Also performed creditably as a wing three-quarter. 

STENE — Very useful anywhere in the back row. In the loose he was never 
far from the ball and was frequently on hand to take a vital pass or to 
profit from mistakes by the opposition. Defensively he was one of the best 
of the forwards and was also most keen and spirited. Developed rapidly 
as a place-kicker and had an excellent season. 

WINDREM — A useful back-row forward with a good knowledge of the game. 
Courageous, determined and experienced, yet, although he had some good 
games, he was not consistent and never quite lived up to expectations. 

MOUSEL — Previously a wing three-quarter, he came into the side late in the 
season as a back-row forward and earned his place. Rather lacking in 
anticipation but took the running tackle beautifully. 

ANGUS I — A full back whose kicking and handling are adequate if he is 
given enough time, but he is easily flustered and tends to panic under 
pressure. His tackling and falling are still weak. 

HUSTON — A most courageous scrum half, who could take heavy punishment. 
His service was quick and accurate, and he was a dangerous man near his 
opponents' line. His kicking and tackling were not up to standard. 

PHILLIPS — A much-improved wing who enjoyed a successful season. Pos- 
sessed a useful short kick and an effective change of pace. His defence 
was adequate. 

TASSIN — Played some good games at inside centre but was not consistent 
and his defence was always hesitant. A useful kick both in attack and 

BLAIR — Rather awkward, his kicking was weak and his handling no more 
than adequate, but he possessed unlimited courage and took on more 
than his share of the tackling and falling with marked success. A useful 
place-kicker. Loved the game and always gave of his best. 

CHAPMAN — A big wing with pace, he was a very potent force this season, 
scoring some fine tries, many more of which are in store. His tackling has 
improved and his hands are fair, but his kicking is still very weak.

The Colts Rugger season can best be described as one of steady pro- 
gress rather than one of outstanding promise. Quite a high proportion 
of the boys representing the School had never played Rugger before, 
and so we were at a considerable disadvantage in the earlier part of 
the season when confronted with more experienced teams. The first 
team was, quite frankly, disappointing, since we lost all our matches 
and there was little team-work in evidence. However, after the Christ- 
mas Holidays everyone returned with renewed vigour and cohesion 
developed considerably, so that by the end of the season there was 
much good play to be witnessed, notably by Zaccarelli and Harrison 
on the right wing, and by the halves, Bapty and Barker I. The for- 
wards, ably led by Finch, the Captain, and well supported by Nelson, 
McKenzie, Jack II, Shanaman, Murdoch II and Wyatt in particular, 
improved greatly throughout the season and enjoyed working together, 
so that by the end they had developed into quite a useful combination 
and were beginning to think about their play. 

Of the matches played, we were well beaten both times by St. 
George's, who had a team composed of quicker thinkers and movers, 
while against Shawnigan we registered a win and two losses, but in 
these cases the teams were very evenly matched in all departments of 
the game. However, we were too strong for Qualicum Colts and ran 
rings round them.

At the end of the season we entered three teams for the Victoria 
and District Junior Seven-a-Side Competition and did very well. 
Teams A and C both reached the semi-finals, while team B, having 
been put out in the first round, went on to win the consolation prize. 
This was a most enjoyable afternoon, which proved to be a great 
success with which to end the season's play.

'105 lb. XV' 

The team had a very good season, for the competition this year was 
of a high standard, St. George's having their finest team for some 
years. The boys were keen and practised hard, and many new boys 
gained their places in the team. Towards the end of the season the 
side was strong, for we had overcome our weakness where the loose 
scrum was concerned, and the forwards without exception were able 
to run and pass the ball with some skill. 

Wilde must be congratulated on his captaincy and the quality of his 
own play. He proved to be a fine attacking wing forward, after moving 
reluctantly to that position from wing three-quarter. Walton is a fine 
natural athlete and he played some good games. McLean I, Spittal 
and Condon played well in the scrum in their first season of Rugby. 
Skidmore II and Wenman were fearless, Meyer progressed well, 
Archibald was a very fast wing and Stephenson's place kicking was 
valuable. Timmis I and Holm showed a lot of progress in the scrum, 
with Timmis I being on hand to score tries on two occasions. 

It is hoped that many of these boys will provide a nucleus for good 
1st. XVs in years to come. 

The Team was as follows: Wilde (Captain), Stephenson, Bolli II, 
Meyer, Wenman, Archibald, Walton, Skidmore, Spittal, McLean I, 
Chattaway, Condon, Timmis I, Holm and Douglas I.

'90 lb. XV' 

The Team produced an excellent record and a most useful season 
in all ways. The importance of Rugby at this age and weight is to 
concentrate on the basic skills. The boys worked hard at these and, 
with their tremendous spirit and enthusiasm, had a most successful 

Barker II and Hardy II, at half back, show a lot of promise, and 
Bapty II and Wilt have the ability to do well. Wenman, who played 
for the 105 lb. XV, was obviously a useful acquisition in matches. The 
forwards did not play together as a single unit. There was too much 
individual effort and their play was, therefore, ragged. This was the 
team's most difficult problem. Garrigues may become a useful for- 
ward, especially in the line-out. Chaworth-Musters was a first-class 
Captain, who showed tremendous enthusiasm and leadership as well 
as playing well himself. 

The team was as follows: Chaworth-Musters (Captain), Wenman, 
Bapty II, Mittelstaedt, Montgomery, Witt, Barker II, Hardy II, 
Howe I, Hegar, Davey I, Harris I, Ingham, Garrigues and Douglas II.

Rugby is, of course, our major winter sport, but both Junior Soccer 
Teams played several games, in which, considering the unavoidable 
lack of practice, the standard of play was commendably high. 

In the Fall Term the Grades VII and VIII Team played matches 
against Esquimalt Junior High, Glenlyon and Charles Wright Acad- 
emy, Tacoma. In the first two games we were narrowly beaten by 
teams much stronger than ourselves, but the Team had improved 
enough to win the third game 5-2. In the Spring Term the return 
game against Charles Wright Academy was played in Tacoma and 
provided the Team with a 7-1 victory and a most enjoyable week-end. 
Stephenson captained the side and played very good Soccer, and 
Walton and Wilde proved an able and hard-working pair of wing 

The Grades V and VI Team played four games — three against 
Cliffside and one against St. George's. All these games were won in a 
most convincing manner by a Team which showed much enthusiasm 
and promise. Hardy II and Barker II played well as inside forwards 
and Garrigues was very good in goal. 




N. Hawkesworth, D. Windrem, R. Webb, D. Grubb, B. PhiUips, M. Symons. 

J. Tassin, A. Goward, D. Angus (Captain), M. Kennaugh, T. Seeger. 


Prospects were not particularly bright for the 1961 season as D. A. 
Angus, the Captain, had only three others from the previous year to 
assist. The tremendous advance made by Goward, the Vice-Captam, 
helped to remedy the situation and in school matches the Team held 
its own. Actually the batting never really failed disastrously, Goward 
and Webb were able to carry the Side with the ball and, while the 
fielding was poor, Seeger proved to be a wicket-keeper of real promise. 
The outstanding individual performance was, of course, ^Webb's 
remarkable seven wickets for one run against St. George's. Five 
matches were arranged but one of the Shawnigan games was cancelled 
because of the adverse weather and the other abandoned, for the same 
reason, after the School had made 67 for eight. Of the three games 
which were finished one was won, one lost and one drawn. 

The Clayton Cup was won by Kennaugh's XI and the Holms Cup, 
for inter-house competition, by Brentwood House. 

A. O. Gow^ard was avvarded his Colours and was also the winner of 
the Bat presented by the University School Incogs to the best all- 
rounder in the School. 


The 1961 XI was as follows: D. A. Angus (Captain), A. O. Goward 
(Vice-Captain), M. J. Kennaugh, J. B. Tassin, D. McC. Grubb, D. O. 
Windrem, N. R. Hawkesworth, T. W. S. Seeger, M. E. Symons, R. P. 
Webb and B. J. Phillips. 

The 2nd. XI did not exist officially, but one Saturday afternoon a 
group of swashbuckling enthusiasts, masquerading as Cricketers, enter- 
tained Shawnigan Lake 2nd. XI and defeated them decisively. There 
was little to suggest that the M.C.C. Coaching Book was held in 
veneration, but much zeal and some skill were shown. 

The Colts XI enjoyed games with Shawnigan Lake School, losing 
once and having the better of a drawn game on another occasion. 
There was general enthusiasm and many boys came on well in this 
group. Simonson, Gage, Webster, Shanaman and Gadban were parti- 
cularly keen. 




Oak Bay, who were far too strong for the School, won by seven 
wickets. Batting first the School were well served by Goward, whose 
26 was full of promise. Symons added 11 at the end, but the others 
were overawed. Oak Bay hit off the runs without difficulty, but 
Goward, who took two for 18 in 11 overs, bowled creditably.

This was a very even game, resulting in a draw, the Old Boys 
declaring at 61 for 8, and the School being three runs short with three

Played at home and won by 52 runs. The visitors batted first arid 
Webb soon settled the match by taking seven wickets for one run. Six 
of his victims were clean bowled while one was caught-and-bowled. 
The St. George's total was ten, of which five came from the bat. The 
school bowling was straight but without pace or guile and there was 
no apparent reason for the record collapse. When the School batted 
they made a shaky start against a pair of very useful bowlers, but 
Tassin, going in late, improved matters, and the innings closed for 62.

ANGUS I (Captain) — Failed to improve much with the bat, his forward play 
being weak. Useful in the field and an enthusiastic Captain. 

COWARD (Vice-Captain) — Vastly improved all round. A free batsman, he 
drives well and punishes bowling short of a length. He is not as happy 
playing back and does not move his feet quickly enough. With the ball he 
has now acquired more pace and control. Quite adequate in the field. A 
keen and promising cricketer. 

KENNAUGH — Not very successful with the bat though he is hard to dismiss 
when he concentrates. By nature a hitter, he frequently chooses the wrong 
one and, never hitting quite straight, pays the penalty. Rather slovenly in 
the field. 

TASSIN — Rather awkward in style but improved with the bat and played 
some small but useful innings. He has also come on considerably with the 
ball. Active and safe in the field. 

WINDREM — Rather passive but has some idea of defence and can hit the 
short ball on the leg side. A bad rurmer between the wickets. Lacks antici- 
pation in the field. 

PHILLIPS — Inexperienced, but developed a keen interest and came on con- 
siderably. Uses his feet well and is always looking for a chance to score. 

WEBB - — With the ball his length and accuracy improved greatly and he 
enjoyed considerable success. Primitive with the bat but can hit hard. 
Weak in the field. 

GRUBB — Playing forward or back defensively he is quite adequate and diffi- 
cult to dislodge, but as soon as he commits himself to an attacking stroke 
he is in trouble. Weak in the field. 

HAWKESWORTH II — With the bat he has promise, but will go no further 
until he learns to use his feet. A poor judge of a run. Weak in the field. 

SYMONS — With the bat he is somewhat agricultural, but his eye is good and 
he has made some timely runs. With the ball his length is inconsistent. 
Active in the field but not safe. Extremely keen and enthusiastic. 

SEEGER — He enjoyed a good season behind the stumps and is a wicket 
keeper of promise. With the bat he can deal with short bowling and is 
learning that defence is important. 





Many boys lacked experience and the Team was dependent on its 
key members, Wenman, Walton and Stephenson. However, enthusiasm 
and CTood fielding enabled us to compile a veiy satisfactory record. 
Five boys, Condon, Douglas I, Meyer, Kelley and Bowman, had not 
played Cricket before and are to be congratulated on their progress. 
Wilde, Holm, Lenfesty and Teagle have shown a lot of improvement. 

Notable perfonnances were by Wenman, who captured eight Glen- 
lyon wickets in the first game, Walton, who bowled well for six 
wickets in the return ganie and Stephenson, who batted well and 
scored o\-er 20 runs on two occasions. Wenman will be a very good 
batsman, but at present he is lacking in physique and often loses his 
wicket by trying to force the pace. Many of these boys will do a lot to 
help School Cricket in the veiy near future. 


V. Glenlyon lost by 7 runs 

V. Glenlyon won by 8 wkts. 

V. Shawnigan won by 6 wkts. 
V. Shawnigan rain stopped play 
V. St. Michael's lost by 8 wkts. 

The following played for the XI: Wenman (Captain), Wilde, Wal- 
ton, Stephenson, Holm, Lenfesty, Teagle, Condon, Douglas, Meyer, 

Kelley and Bowman. 



The Team was made up of boys in the second of the two Cricket 
Groups and consisted mainly of V and VI Graders, with a few from 
Grade VII. During the short period in which the boys are exposed to 
the game it is difficult to reach any standard of technical proficiency. 
Nevertheless, several of the Team made great progress during the 
Term and many of them show real promise. 

All four matches played were won by comfortable margins. Against 
Glenlyon, the first match was won by 60 runs, and the second by 67 
runs: against St. Michael's the team won by 63 runs; and against 
Cliff side by six wickets. Chaworth-Musters captained the side well, 
Hardy 11 Wilt and Barker II produced some good bowling and 
Timmis II kept wicket very well. The fielding, though sometimes 
slack, was of a fairiy good standard, and few catches were dropped.

Because there was practically no rain here in Victoria until tlie end 
of October, we were able to play quite a number of games of Grass 
Hockey, with the result that a number of boys has become quite 
proficient in handling a stick. Four matches in all were played on 
the School Field in front of Brown Hall and, as may be gathered from 
the results, after the first match the School did very well to hold its 
more experienced opponents, and was most unlucky not to win the 
final game. 

Of the boys participating in the games all possessed speed and 
determination, and ran and harassed their opponents continuously. 
Kennaugh, the Captain, was a useful back, playing very steadily and 
hitting the ball cleanly, while his partner, Tassin, was more erratic, 
though spectacular at times. The halves all worked hard, but found 
the technique of the reverse-side tackle a difficult one to master. 

As may be seen from the results, we scored only three goals, and this 
is a fair representation of the limitations of the forwards when inside 
the circle. An understandable lack of stick-work showed up clearly in 
front of goal, but generally the mid-field play and the distribution of 
the ball about the field were good. Dykes, Chapman and Keble all 
showed thrust, and Stene, in the centre, worked as hard as anyone, 
while Clark, at centre-half, also did well. 

The results were: 




1 -4 




I - 1 




1 - 1 





The following represented the School: Palmer, Kennaugh, Tassin, 
Clark, Goward, Angus H, Keble, Blair, Hawkesworth H, Dykes, 
Chapman, Cole, Phillips, Angus I and Monkman. 

Since the end of our school hockey season a number of boys have 
played in games with or against the Victoria side, and we hope that 
this will continue in the future and help to build up more interest in 
Grass Hockey in the Victoria area. 



This year for the first time in recent memory the School had a 
regular Basketball Team, which played a number of matches and was 
led by a full-time coach, Mr. Prowse, who, although he was new to 
the game, gave us all the help he possibly could and spent a great 
deal of time arranging fixtures with local teams. 

In all eight games were played, of which three were won. Credit for 
these victories should go to Brannon, who averaged nearly 24 points 
per game and, in the game against the strong University Baptist 


Church Team from Seattle, scored 29 of the School's 46 points. 

The high point of the season came when we travelled to Shawnigan 
Lake for our annual game. Although we lost 43-45 it was the first 
time the School had come even close to defeating its up-island rivals, 
and it was we, in fact, who held the lead until just a few minutes 
from the end. 

At the end of the season Colours were awarded for the first time in 
the School's history. These went to Abel and Brannon. The prospects 
for next year are very good, with only one key player, Blair, not 
returning (though his timely rebounding will be missed a great deal) . 

The Inter-House Competition, for which there was a Cup for the 
first time, was won by Founders, and Brentwood won the under 16 

We are all greatly indebted to Mr. Macdonald, Headmaster of 
Lansdowne Junior High School, for allowing us to use their gym two 
nights a week for practice and for matches. 

The Team was as follows: Abel (Captain), Brannon, Angus I, Blair, 
Monkman, Dykes, Huston, Sweeting, Van Scholten and Shanaman.

Tennis has been played most actively this last term, and many 
boys have taken advantage of the availability of the Courts. Through- 
out the season Tennis has been run on a regular games basis, boys 
having to apply to Stene, Prefect in charge, for the booking of courts. 
The scheme worked well, enabling many more boys than in previous 
years to play. Towards the end of term a large number of boys took 
part in a knock-out tournament and many good matches were played. 
The Final ended in a well-deser\'ed victory for Sturdy, who played 
very steadily in spite of adverse wind conditions to beat Coward by 
two sets to one.

Owing to circumstances beyond our control we are unable to supply 
detailed swimming notes this year; but aquatic readers will be happy to 
hear that, under the energetic captaincy of H. G. Sweeting, the School 
swimming has reached a very high standard. Public events have in- 
cluded a meet against Shawnigan (narrowly lost, but amply revenged 
in the first event of the new school year) and a Cadet Inter-Services 
Tournament at 'Naden', in which the Corps Team scored a fighting 
win against stiff opposition. 

Founders were successful in the Inter-House Sports, and Sweeting 
emerged from the Tank Champion for the third year running. 




A Skin Diving Club was organized in the Autumn Term to cater 
for those boys who wished to learn this fascinating sport — "learn", 
not "indulge in", being the operational term. The 20 boys who enrolled 
for the course were instructed in the classroom before moving to the 
Swimming Tank to obtain practical experience with SCUBA diving 

The class was taken into the sea on Autumn week-ends in twos and 
threes, and all the pupils were successful in their dives. Mr. Caleb 
accompanied the party as a pupil of the diving class and the Master 
interested in the sport. It is hoped that these courses will lead to more 
boys learning this intriguing sport safely and under competent super- 



This Winter we hav'e continued our skiing expeditions on a number 
of week-ends and have had some excellent times. During last year the 
new ferry service from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen was opened and 
this now brought Mt. Baker well within our range. As a result only 
one trip was made to Hurricane Ridge while four parties visited Mt. 
Baker. For the latter we found a very convenient motel in Abbots- 
ford, and, taking plenty of food with us, we were able to enjoy two 
full days' skiing each week-end, followed by a dash for the ferry, 
which allowed us to be back in School by 9:15 on the Sunday evening. 

The standard of skiing was quite good, particularly that of Jeffer- 
son, while Monkman, Singer and Dobell showed commendable skill, 
and many others made good use of the facilities and the varied choice 
of runs. Generally speaking the weather was good and at times the 
snow conditions were excellent, so that, although a few boys became 
expert "lodge skiers", the majority of us was able to make full use of 
the time on the mountain. 

If all goes well we hope that we shall be able to renew our acquaint- 
ance with the snows of Mt. Baker after Christmas next year. 



S. S. Lowe (Intermediate), A. J. V. Keble (Senior), C. J. W. Butler (Junior). 


The enthusiasm for Athletics this year was very encouraging, and, 
although there were no brilliant performers, hard training did produce 
some good results from a number of boys. Training started on the first 
day of term in the form of Calisthenics under the direction of Mr. 
Leslie, and after Inspection Day moved out on to the track, where 
Interval Training was introduced under Mr. Prowse. That this form 
of training produces results can be seen by the performances of the 
boys who worked hardest at it, notably Cree I, who ran a 10.2. lUU 
yards in the Triangular Meet, Keble, who won the Corsan Trophy on 
Sports Day, Chapman, who beat the School Shot Put record by over 
two feet and Lowe, who proved the outstanding runner m the Inter- 
mediate Group. It is hoped that more boys will use this form of 
training next year, as only really hard training will produce a good 
Athletics Team. 

Five Meets were held altogether, two Senior, two Intermediate and 
one Under 14. The Intermediate Team lost to Shawnigan on a very 
wet day, the one outstanding event, from the School's point of view, 
being the 440 yards, in which Lowe had a fine win. Later on in the 


Term the Intermediate Team joined forces with the Under 14s and 
had a good win over Glenlyon and St. Michael's in what proved to be 
a very enjoyable Meet, the first of many we hope. 

As well as the Annual Triangular Meet with Shawnigan and St. 
George's the Senior Team had a very successful Meet with Oak Bay 
High School, the Victoria High School Champions, and did very well 
to come within five points of victory. Outstanding perfonnances in- 
cluded Keble's 220 win and Cree I's winning run in the last leg of the 
4x110 yards relay. Rather disappointingly we finished last in the 
Triangular Meet, but we were hampered by a good deal of bad luck. 
Half way through the Meet, largely due to the prowess of our High 
Jumpers and Hurdlers, Chapman and Blair in particular, we held a 
narrow one point lead. Then Keble pulled a muscle in his leg, which 
deprived us of valuable points in the 220 yards. Hop, Step and Jump 
and Medley Relay. The Meet did show too that we are very weak in 
the 880 yards and Mile in comparison with the other two schools, a 
matter that can only be rectified by hard running round the Golf 
Course in the Winter months! 

Lastly, I would like to thank Mr. Leslie for all his help on the track 
this year, and for the very handsome Rose Bowl which he has presented 
for annual competition between Oak Bay-University and Cowichan- 
Shawnigan. Together with our colleagues at Oak Bay we will certainly 
do our best to win it next year! 

The Track Team was as follows: Cree I (Captain), Blair, Chapman, 
Keble, Sweeting, Dykes, Clark, Van Scholten, Mousel, Stene, Goward, 
Tassin, Rigos, Huston, Lowe, Monkman, Barker I, Johnson H and 

Colours were awarded to Cree I, Blair, Chapman and Keble. 


The Annual Sports were held on Saturday, June 3rd., and we were 
honoured by the presence of the Lieut. -Governor of B.C., the Hon. 
George Pearkes, and Mrs. Pearkes, who gave away the prizes. Several 
events were run off before Sports Day. These included the Inter- 
mediate Mile (won by Lowe in 5m. lis.), in which the first three men 
all beat the existing record, and the Shot Put, in which Chapman's 
heave of 43' 1" beat the School record by over two feet. 

Sports Day itself provided a typical hot Victoria Summer after- 
noon, and, although there were no outstanding performances, Goward 
showed form that promises well for next year's Jaxclin, Van Scholten 
won an extremely exciting 440 yards. Chapman showed good style in 
winning the High Jump and Keble and Lowe both displayed consider- 
able stamina and constancy in winning the Corsan and Worthington 
Cups and becoming Senior and Intemiediate Champions respectively. 
The Marpole Cup, for the best athlete under 14, was won by Butler II.

The School Cross Country was run over much the same course as 
in previous years and was won by Grubb (Founders), with Keble 
(Brentwood) and Lowe (Brentwood) second and third respectively. 
Grubb's interest and participation in distance running has always 
been keen, and he was a most deserving winner of the Old Boys' Cup 
which goes to the first man home. Barker I, the first Junior to finish, 
won the Robertson Cup for the second year in succession. There were 
130 starters and 130 finishers, and Founders were winners of the 
Inter-House competition. 

The Annual Race for the T. Eaton Trophy was run this year at 
St. George's School, Vancouver. Victoria High School did not com- 
pete and the School finished third behind Shawnigan Lake and St. 
George's, Grubb, our first man, placing seventh. 

Early in March the B.C. High School Cross Country Championship 
took place at Victoria High School. Eleven teams competed over 3.4 
miles and there were 77 runners. The School Team finished ninth, 
individuals placing as follows: Grubb 32nd., Van Scholten 39th., 
Keble 45th., Etheridge 59th. and Hudson 70th.

This year, as last, many changes and improvements have been made 
in the Corps, while the standards for which the Unit is becoming at 
least provincially famous have been fully maintained. Among these 
changes have been the introduction of F.N. di'ill for the Guard, in 
anticipation of the day when our present .303s will be replaced by the 
modern F.N.s; the placing of emphasis on Ficldcraft, culminating in 
the Spring Term with a scheme for I and IV Platoons and the Band, 
near Mount Newton; the fitting out of all Cadets with kilts, consider- 
ably improxing the appearance of the whole Corps, and the teaching 
of new subjects, notably National Survival and Fundamentals. 

We were honoured, on May 3rd., to be inspected by General 
Foulkes, recently-retired C.G.S. of the Canadian Army — a distinc- 
tion enjoyed by few other Corps. Also this year the Coips took part 
in the Victoria Day Parade and, as usual, showed itself to advantage. 
The two Sunset Ceremonies were excellent, and a final Guard Parade 
on Speech Day was highly praised by our distinguished guest, the 
Lieut. -Governor. 

Once again we were represented at Vernon, tliis year both in the 
Cadet Leader and Cadet Leader Instructor courses. Our Cadets were 
prominent in many aspects of camp life, and Sgt. King carried on the 
tradition started by last year's Adjutant of winning the Cup for the 
best first-year Cadet (competing against some 1400). It is hoped that 
this year one of our contingent will clinch the 'hat trick'. 

In conclusion, on behalf of the Officers, N.C.O.s and Other Ranks, 
I would like to express my deep appreciation of the work done by Lts. 
Genge, Storr and Wilson (to whom most of the credit for the field 
scheme must go) in keeping the Corps on an even keel, to Mr. Caleb, 
who has super\dsed the Shooting under difficult conditions and to the 
Matrons, who have come so often to our rescue at the last moment.

During their session at the Vernon Cadet Trades Training Camp 
those members of the Corps that attended made an outstandmg mark 
for themselves. Most praiseworthy was Ralph King, who not only 
became Battalion Commander but also won the highest award of the 
Camp — the Trophy for the Best Cadet in the Battalion. Grubb and 
Tuck were Commanders of 'K' (D. & M.) and 'A' Compames respec- 
tively. Wilkinson, who had won the Best Cadet Award for 'H' Com- 
pany, was No. 1 Platoon Commander, and Hawkesworth II was a 
Platoon Sergeant. These representatives certainly maintained the 

reputation of the School at the Camp. ,_ ^ , ^ ^ ,., ^ c at x

The Rifle Range having passed into obli\-ion. we have been using 
the Bay Street Armouries. 

The obvious difficulties in transporting a group down to town each 
afternoon in the restricted time available have not affected the en- 
thusiasm or proficiency of the Corps. Indeed we were able to complete 
two shoots for the Youth of Empire Competition, one at the beginning 
of the year and one at the end. The latter showed the average increase 
in scores to be 12.7% ! 

It is to be hoped that the Shooting Range envisaged as part of the 
new Classroom Block will soon be completed. 

There were a number of competitions during the year, the results of 
which are gi\-en below. We trust tliat the competition arranged wdth 
Shawnigan will become an annual event. 

The main results and achievements were as follows:

Team A Average on three shoots 91.4% 

Team B Average on tliree shoots 85.7% 

Crossed Rifles were held by 70 Members of the Corps, including 30 

awarded 1960-61 (1st. Class Shots).

The year has indeed been a memorable and successful one for the 
Band. This success was due wholly to constant practice and hard 
work which everyone contributed throughout the year. Once more, 
unfortunately, the Band had to start almost completely from scratch, 
as only six members from the previous Band had returned. 

This year Band and Corps participated in the May 24th. Parade. 
Out of six Bugle Bands the School's placed second — a good per- 
formance for a first showing. The three important Parades of the 
year were for the Band, the most successful that I have known. On 
Inspection Day everyone in the Band moved with a military precision 
second to none, and the two Sunset Ceremonies were sterling per- 
formances, with the Bugles playing faultlessly. 

Next year I think the School can look forward to just as good 
a Band if not better, so may I extend to the forthcoming Band 
and Bandmaster the Best of Luck — and don't accept anything but 

perfection! ^ ^, .,,. ^ ...

The Signalling, though achieving only moderate success in com- 
parison with the records of previous years, nevertheless registered a 
tremendous improv^ement over last year's class, in which lack of 
ser\dceable equipment caused loss of interest. This year, thanks to the 
efforts of Clark and Powell-Williams, who made an oscillator appear 
quite suddenly out of the blue, a small group of Signallers was able 
to acquire sufficient practice to qualify in the examinations at the end 
of the session. As a result Powell-Williams, Woollends, Gadban, Gage 
and Groos passed their '6 w.p.m.' and Powell- Williams his '12 w.p.m.' 

I would like to thank all those who helped to make Signalling this 
year a success, including Blaney I, whose 100 ft. coil of wire came in 
veiy handy on Inspection Day. I feel sure that these results will be a 
source of encouragement to those trying again next year. 

Michael J. Woollends, Sgt. 


At the start of the year it looked as though Radio Communications 
would be inactive because of the lack of serviceable equipment. But 
early in Easter a pleasant shock occurred — the Army was able to 
provide us with two '19' Sets, three '26' Sets, four Field Telephones 
and a Switchboard. At the same time as the new equipment arrived 
the radio shack moved next door into larger quarters. 

On Inspection Day we were again affiliated with the First Aid 
Display, which had its usual success. We also played an important 
role on the Cadet Field Day, when we showed the usefulness of R.C. 
in maintaining conununications between the various groups involved. 

Our thanks go to Mr. Storr for his efforts in acquiring additional 
equipment, and I would like personally to thank those communica- 
tions Cadets whose efforts made the year so successful. 

Bryan Tassin, Sgt. 


This year First Aid enjoyed an enrolment of 25 Members. A new 
book was introduced by the St. John's Ambulance Association, making 
the course more difficult. As before, the Class worked hard and did 
extremely well in the Exam. 

The highlight of the year was the Display on Inspection Day. First 
Aid participated in a species of "Grade A Western" Radio Communi- 
cations set piece with the Bren Guns adding to the excitement. The 
resulting combat was fierce, of course, and most of the enemy were 


killed or wounded while charging over a pre-arranged landscape and 
fighting their way through wire and smoke, the butchery being com- 
pleted by final application of the latest Medical Skill available. 

My congratulations to all First Aiders who received their Certifi- 
cates, and the best of luck to Stene, who will be instructing next year. 

Tom J. Rigos, Major. 

(We understand tliat of the 21 Candidates who took their Final 
Exam. 20 passed- — -Ed.). 


During last year the Troop was kept going, in the absence of a 
Scoutmaster, by se\eral Senior Boys, and it says much for their en- 
thusiasm, and that of their supporters, that there were so many boys 
anxious to join the Troop in September. 

It at once became obvious that the first requirement for the Troop 
was an adequate place in which to meet. With the Headmaster's 
approval plans were begun for the building of a new Scout Hall 
behind Harney House. It was originally hoped to have it in use some 
time during the Spring Term, but unavoidable delays meant that it 
was still not completed by the end of the Summer Term, though it 
will probably now be ready for September. 

Largely because of this lack of a meeting place, the Troop has not 
made as much progress as had been hoped. The high-light of the year 
was a week's camp at Camp Barnard, near Sooke, after the end of the 
Summer Term. The thirteen boys who took part are to be congratu- 
lated on constructing a camp site which drew favourable comments 
from all who saw it, and on a week in which they behaved well, 
worked hard and accomplished much. This kind of spirit augurs well 
for the future. I.M. 


The Debating Society has again flourished, under the enthusiastic 
and, to many Speakers' distress, wholehearted support of Mr. Caleb. 
Most Debates were held in the Memorial Hall; interspersed, in the 
Winter Term, were several "Any Questions?" sessions. Panel discus- 
sions (heated arguments, on occasion) also took place in Brown Hall. 

Topics under survey included 'Ghosts', 'The Annexation of Canada 
by the U.S.A.', 'Compulsoiy Education' and 'The White Man's With- 
drawal from Africa'. Rigos, Yaiyan and Monkman were always ready 
to say something, and Payne always ready to say nothing. However, 
all those who attended the Debates felt that they had at least had an 
evening's entertainment, and they undoubtedly benefited from the 
facts (and fictions) which were bandied about. M. J. Woollends acted 
as Chairman and N. H. R. Etheridge as Secretary.

The Projection Club, as usual, has carried on in the background, 
without much recognition of its functions. It has been a quiet year 
where most aspects of its activities have been concerned. 

We have had a wide assortment of films throughout the session that 
have appealed to both Seniors and Juniors. Minor alterations to the 
projection room have made the showings easier and more efficient 
than in past years. 

The membership of the Club has been kept to a minimum and we 
have admitted only one new member, Harry Pollard, the old members 
being B. Tassin, W. Monkman, I. Dykes and P. Clark. 

Thanks go to Mr. Creek for his valuable guidance, and to all mem- 
bers who gave so freely of their time. 

Peter N. E. Clark. 



The vear began with much enthusiasm among boys in the Senior 
Houses, but this unfortunately dwindled, so that the Competition, 
begun during the Spring Term, was not completed. 

It was possible to organize only two matches, during the Spring 
Term — against Shawnigan Lake School and Victoria High School. 
Both of these were lost to teams far stronger than our own. Boys who 
represented the School were Clark, Etheridge, Woollends, Montgom- 
ery, Adams, Stene, Hinton and Watson. 



Art in the School has had a most encouraging and productive year. 
Weekly activities have included sketching trips, visits to the local Art 
Gallery' and films of various techniques in painting. 

Every month each boy was given a project and the best work was 
picked to enter the Annual Exhibition on Speech Day. The boys 
worked with tremendous enthusiasm in the preparation of this show, 
which, incidentally, was the biggest of its kind for some time. 

Visitors this year were able to see over 190 exhibits in various 
mediums — oil paintings, water colours, pastels, charcoal sketches and 
models of varying shapes and sizes. These filled both the Art Room 
and the Music Room in Har\ey House. The Exhibition was also well 
advertised by a committee of boys who distributed posters throughout 
the School. 

It would be impossible to describe each individual exhibit, but there 
was a very high standard of work throughout. 

The Art Prizes tliis year went to Alan Goodin and Timothy Roberts 
for their outstanding work. 



Thanks to the Parents and Friends of the School the Library has 
had a very good year. It was reorganized by volunteer Librarians, who 
worked ably throughout. Definite opening times were set, and a new 
checking system introduced. 

During the year Library Bulletins were issued, which resulted in a 
total of 2,126 books being presented. I am sure that this is a record 
for any one year, and the School appreciates it more than we are 
able to say.

The Library was repainted in the Spring Term by the Librarians 
and Volunteers. No pressed men were used — a very good indication 
of the enthusiasm of the boys concerned. The Headmaster arranged 
for a large carpet to be purchased^ and the quiet atmosphere of a real 
Library was completed by the hanging of new curtains made by Mrs. 

The use made of this centre has shown how very important it is that 
our School should have this facility in first-class order. The crowded 
lending-times and the silence in the room, even w-hen it has been full 
of boys thumbing through volumes, have paid tribute to the apprecia- 
tion shown to those volunteer Librarians who have done such a fine 

The Librarians have been as follows: P. N. E. Clark, E. R. Dobell, 
J. C. Mackid, W. R. Monkman, J. M. Palmer, E. J. Ralph, J. B. deB. 
Tassin, H. W. Watson, R. P. Webb and L M. Dykes. 




The House has been fortunate in having Mr. Prowse as its new 
House Tutor. We feel that he deserves considerable credit for his 
enthusiasm and influence. 

In games the House has done exceedingly well. Founders was 
victorious in the Senior and Junior Rugby, the Swimming and the 
Senior Basketball. Many thanks must be given to Abel, who managed 
to stimulate basketball as a major Winter Sport in the School. 

To those returning I would like to say that next year offers great 
possibilities in all aspects of House life. I hope that through the coming 
year Fovmders will uphold the proud traditions of its past. 

Barry H. Gree, Captain of House. 


Again our thanks this year must go to Mr. Creek and Mr. Genge. 
Under their guidance the House has had one of its most successful 
sessions. Incidentally, Mr. Creek's and Mr. Caleb's nightly dormitory 
visitations have been appreciated by all. 

Athletically we have fared very well. After a fierce struggle we were 
unsuccessful in the Inter-House Rugby. The Inter-House Basketball 
ended with a win for the House in the Junior Game but a loss in the 
Senior. The House owes much to Keble and Lowe, who led their 
individual age groups, and to Blair, who, with tlie rest of us, succeeded 
in bringing back the Inter-House Sports Trophy. The House Cricket 
XI, led by Coward and Angus I, scored very well to win, and we also 
won the Inter-House Shooting Match, an event held for the first time 
this year. 

Many thanks to Mrs. Freil, whose interest and help were appreci- 
ated by all. 

We wish the best of luck to those returning, and hope they may 
uphold the high standard set throughout this year. 

Tom J. Rigos, Captain of House. 



The Harvey House Prefects were Wilde, Stephenson, Dafoe, Holm 
and Wilt. They faced their difficult task with credit. The points for 
the DormitOi-y Shield were keenly contested in the daily inspections. 
The resulting tidiness in the dormitories, as well as the general good 
health of the boys, owes much to the constant care of Mrs. FreH, our 
Matron. Congratulations to C. Holm on winning the Chapman Cup 
for the best all-round boy in the House under 16 years. 


The Harv^ey House Library, and, still more, the School Library have 
been very much used this year by the boys, both for reading purposes 
and for their work. The Encyclopaedias have been in constant demand 
for Social Studies and for Science essays. The Library Prize was won 
by J. Peth, with Chaworth-Musters runner-up; both these boys had 
read over forty books each in the last two terms. The Librarians, P. 
Favelle and J. Peth, did much useful work. 

Stamp-collecting was as ardent as ever, and the hobbies room pro- 
duced, from a mass of wood, paint and glue, some good models of 
planes and cars. The Harvey House Press Magazine was printed and 
circulated twice during the year. 

The Juniors organized and produced two variety shows, which were 
much enjoyed by the actors and the audiences. The prime movers in 
this enterprise were R. Spittal, J. Dafoe and P. Favelle.

The Executives held a meeting on January 25th. and it was reported 
that the sum of $43.00 had been raised from two cake sales. These 
have been quite successful in the past and it is hoped that they will 
continue to be so. 

Our goal is still set as the helping of the School Library, and we 
aim to hold a garden party and bazaar. We trust that the coming year 
will see enough parents gathered to combine efforts and bnng these 

to a successful conclusion. 

Mrs. E. T. Howe, Secretary. 


The Annie Wright Seminary played host to this Conference, and 
six Boys from the School accompanied by a Master attended the 
week-end organized by the Pacific Northwest Independent Schools. 

Present were groups from many Schools in B.C. and Washmgton, 
and the Discussion Topic was "Worship." Those from University 
School played a full part in the activities of the week-end and made 
their presence felt in the excellent discussions. 

On Sunday morning was held the Chapel Ser\dce, when participants 
who had shown leadership were invited to assist. It is very pleasing to 
know that of the three boys chosen two were Canadians, both from 
University School. Mayhew read the lesson and Palmer earned the 
Canadian Flag. 

We are looking forward to being able to attend a simUar Conference 
during the coming year. PAG 


On a hot June day ten Senior boys and two Masters left for Europe. 
The Tour, by DCS Jet and aboard die R.M.S. Cannthia, began in 
high prom'ise and continued in excellent companionship. 

The Tour was planned to cover as large a field as possible without 
attempting so much that nothing would be seen properly. In mne 
weeks eleven countries were visited and 5,000 miles covered in our 
small bus over continental roads, amidst continental drivers. 

It is of course, impossible to record the entire story of our adven- 
tures; only, as it were, to pick out some of the many highlights of our 

Some come immediately to mind — punting along the backs at 
Cambridge, climbing over the great castle at Harlech, Princes Street 
in Edinburgh and the Cathedral and Bishop's Palace at Wells. We 
received wonderful hospitality at four English Schools, who very 


kindly opened their doors to us — Pocklington, Yorkshire, Rossall, 
Lancashire, Radley, Berkshire, and Dauntsey's, Wiltshire. They en- 
abled us to see how a School like ours is conducted in England, and 
we felt very much at home. We hope that we may be able to repay 
in some way their hospitality. 

After our journeyings in the United Kingdom we crossed the 
Channel and toured the battlefields of Flanders. At Ypres, scene of 
devastation and destiny, we read of Captain Harvey's courage — a 
record kept in St. George's Church and one which we were proud to 
read and record. 

The kindness of the people we met on our journeyings showed that 
the sacrifices made by the New World on behalf of the Old are not 

Luxemburg and the Autobahns of Germany gave way to the scenic 
majesty of Switzerland — the towering Alps and deep lakes. Into 
Italy to Florence, Pisa and Alassio, the French Riviera, Monte Carlo, 
the Rhone Valley — and then our way lay to Paris, Brussels and 

The return journey was made over the Pole to Canada at the end 
of a most enjoyable experience. The Masters in charge were extremely 
satisfied with the behaviour and bearing of the Members of the School 
and would certainly accompany any future tours. 



This year's School Dance, the first in three years, was a complete 
success, in spite of many fears to the contrary. All the arrangements 
for the dance were made by the Dance Committee, a group of boys 
from Grade IX to Grade XII. The Committee had the financial 
backing of the School, and the able, but not restrictive, guidance of 
the Headmaster and Mr. Creek. 

The Dance was held in Brown Hall, which had been decorated for 
the event most beautifully with huge baskets of flowers provided by 
Mrs. Timmis, and a few of the more resplendent trophies belonging 
to the School were on display too. The whole of Saturday, March 
25th., was spent in preparing the Hall, while the kitchen staff was 
kept busy making up the refreshments. By 9:00 o'clock the dance was 
in full swing to the tunes of a very capable band. It was indeed un- 
fortunate that the Day Boys of Grade IX could not be invited, but as 
it was there was only just enough room for the remainder of the 
Upper School, the Staff and a few Guests of the Headmaster. Those 
boys who so desired invited the girls of their choice, and a number of 
girls from Norfolk House and St. Margaret's were invited to even the 

For some it was hard work preparing the details of the dance, but 
it was well worth the effort, and I hope it was the forerunner of many 
enjoyable dances to come. 

Robert L. Mayhew. 



We are glad to record recent academic successes of Old Boys: 

ROGER STONE — Roger has been awarded one of Canada's twelve 
Athlone Fellowships. The award is approximately $2,500.00 per 
annum for three years Post-Graduate study at Oxford. 

D. J. BALLANTYNE — David, who recei\ed his Ph.D. at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland a year ago, has now finished a year at the 
Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph, where he had a Fellowship 
from the National Research Council. On October 1st. he is to take 
a post with the Dominion Experimental Farm at Saanichton, V.I., 
where he will be Plant Physiologist. 

J. E. COLEMAN — John took his B.A. degree this year at U.B.C., 
with First Class Honours in Greek. In addition he has been awarded 
a $1500 Woodrow Wilson (Ford Foundation) Scholarship for 
Greek. A career in Archaeology is planned, and he is already weU 
on his way. 

E. C. LATOUR — Edward has also been successful in gaining his 
B.A. degree with First Class Honours in Classics. He was also 
awarded the U.B.C. (Ahepa) Prize for Greek. We imderstand that 
previously he was in the running for a Fellowship. 

R. I. KINGHAM — Ian, who is on loan to the Canadian Good Roads 
Ass'n. from the Department of Public Works, has been awarded a 
$2000 Scholarship which is given by Industry through the Canadian 
Good Roads Ass'n. He now plans to complete his M.A. degree and 
has been accepted at the Graduate School at Purdue Univ^ersity 
for January, 1962. 

This year, for the first time in its history, Victoria College granted 
degrees, so it was very fitting to note that among those successful was 
an Old Boy, A. R. HUTCHINSON, who took his B.A. In September 
Robin plans to enter McGill University to take Medicine. 

Among Old Bovs who have visited the School recently have been: 
M. G. HUDEC '(Berkelev), P. R. SEELEY (Vancouver), Roger 
MILNER (Vancouver), John TWEEDY (Port Alberni), R. N. MAN- 
NING (San Diego) and H. A. POOLE (Vancouver). The last- 
mentioned is an old Queen's School boy who entered University 
School in 1909 and last \isited us in 1919. when he was "demobbed." 


MOFFAT — J. S. Moffat to Margaret Kirk, at the Protestant Chapel, 
R.C.A.F., Gomox, V.I., on August 5th., 1961. 

TURNER — J. M. Turner to Mary Constance MacDonald, at St. 
Mar^-'s Anglican Church, Vancouver, on August 5th., 1961. 




The Sister Publications which have reached us, from both sides of 
the Atlantic, have been too numerous to quote here in detail. 

Our Best Wishes go to our "opposite numbers," together with the 
assurance that exchange copies have already been mailed. 



Our apologies go to B. C. C. Whiteside, whose name was mis- 
spelled in last year's 'Academic Results', and to R. E. Spencer, whose 
name should have figured in red in the 'Salvete'.
