Editorial a la Milner 

On a glad June day that is new as the Summer, and golden, 

While the tattered primers and tomes are returned to the shelves, 

The cars and the cabs throng the quadrangle, ancient and olden. 
For the Grades go home — and among them the lordlier "Twelves." 

Has it all been worth-while — the exile, the dire separation, 

The Studies that scarcely were Social, the Maths, that were bleak. 

The formulae now half-forgotten, the vain cerebration, 
The little Latin (perchance) and the rather less Greek? 

Well — perhaps, though they're scarcely inspired with celestial fire. 
They have learnt on a road that is rough a behaviour that's meet — 

To stand on their own hind legs just a little bit higher; 
To refrain from callously trampling the next man's feet. 

And, maybe, the one from the dim, past days will remember 

How that 'Jussive Subjunctive', the "Vivat", was shouted on high 

(On a day that was equally golden in gloomy December) , 
VNlien, in gloiy, he scored the decisive and ultimate try.

The Headmaster's resignation after twenty-two years in office brings 
to an end an era marked by progress in all fields and the construction 
of many new buildings, of which in 1948 the school was in sore need. 

He is to be succeeded, with effect from 1st. August, by Mr. Richard 
L. Gordon, B.A. (Alberta), M.A. (Oxon.), a former Rhodes Scholar 
and Headmaster of St. John's-Ravenscourt School, Winnipeg. This 
major change must inevitably dwarf all other events of the school year 
and, as an alternative to the customary School Notes, the Headmaster's 
Speech Day Report is printed in full. In 1948 this Magazine quoted 
Tennyson with "The old order changeth, yielding place to new," and 
once again this quotation has become apt. Many expressions of goodwill 
have been received by the Headmaster and Mrs. Timmis from all sec- 
tions of school life — present Students, Old Boys, Governors, Staff and 
the educational world of British Columbia outside the School itself, 
which last indicates how great has been the impact made by the School 
outside its borders. These tokens — some of them very practical ones — 
have been greatly appreciated, and it is sincerely hoped that the same 
support will be given to the new Headmaster. Fortunately Mr. Gordon 
is a man of considerable experience, and to him and Mrs. Gordon a 
very warm welcome is extended. 

Mr. and Mrs, Timmis will be living at 4351 Blenkinsop Road, Vic- 
toria, B.C., where they will hope to receive visits from all members of 
the school family — past, present and future. 

Congratulations are due: 

( 1 ) To Mrs. McDonough, who, after a quarter-century's devoted 
service to the School, retired during the last Summer Vacation. She 
keeps in close touch, and continues to take great interest in the School 
and the Old Boys. 

(2) To Harvey House Teams, for their many victories throughout 
the year, and especially to Freistadt, for not only winning the Junior 
Cross Country but nearly catching Logan in the Senior. 

(3) To a Senior on Sports Day, for mistaking the Headmaster's in- 
structions for "three cheers", first for "three chairs", which he pro- 


duced. and then, on correction, for "three beers", which, sadly, were 
not forthcoming. 

(4) To the Rugby Tourists, for their success abroad. 

(5) To the Senior Track Relay Team, for equalling the High School 
Record at Centennial Stadium. 

(6) To Miller, for his $100 Cadet Scholarship awarded by the 
Women's Auxiliary to the Canadian Scottish Regiment. 

( 7 ) To the Master who selected a Cross Country Team and then 
sent them out as markers on the course. 

(8) To those volunteers who did much towards making the Cadet 
Inspection a success. 

(9) To Lt.-Col. Girard. for the award of the 'Silver Acorn' (II 
Highest Award ) , from Governor-General Roland Michener, for "Es- 
pecially-distinguished Services to Scouting." (The Governor-General 
is. of course, the Chief Scout of Canada. ) In his earlier days at the 
school Scouts flourished strongly under his leadership.

(June 6th., 1970) 

Speech Day — Sports Day, as usual, dawned bright and clear, and 
a goodly number of Parents and friends assembled in the Gym to cele- 
brate the 64th. anni\ersary ceremonies. After the Headmaster's Report, 
which this year is printed in full, Mr. Ronald R. Jeffels, c.d., b.a., b.ed. 
(Alberta), m.a. (Cantab.), Director of Admissions, University of Vic- 
toria, presented the academic awards, of which the full list is appended, 
and then spoke principally to the boys on their inheritance in the 
world of today. He drew comparisons between the world inherited by 
his generation and theirs. He delved into History, but wisely refrained 
from forecasting the future, and appealed to them not to ignore com- 
pletely the lessons of the past in dealing with the future, but to profit 
from the good things which they had inherited in the continuing line 
of pi-ogress. 

It was a first-class Speech Day Address, erudite and humorous, \vhich 
met with the response it deserved — a rapt audience and a sincere 
"thank-you", first from the Head Prefect, Justin A. Meeker, and then 
from Mr. Logan Mayhew, \^ice-Chairman of the Board. The proceed- 
ings ended, as usual, \vith a lusty rendering of the School Song, and 
everyone adjourned for lunch, followed by the Sports, at which Mrs. 
JefTels graciously presented the trophies to the winners. 


"Mr. Mayhew, Mr. JefTels, Ladies and Gentlemen: Once again I 
am delighted to welcome Parents and Friends to Speech Day-Sports 
Day, an annual event which nowadays appears to recur with ever- 
increasing frequency. Although it is indeed a long time since my first 
Speech Day here, with the boxing ring in the old gymnasium as a 
platform and a very small audience indeed, it seems only a few weeks 
ago that we were assembled for the 1969 Exercises, and only the vast 
amount of activity which has occurred in the meantime underlines the 
fact that a year has indeed passed. 

"In contemplating these same events we find that some things stand 
out. First is the good academic standing of the VI Form, who should 
produce very good results in Departmental Exams this June. Second, 
last No\-ember the School underwent a thorough inspection by a 
former Senior Inspector of Secondary Schools for Greater Vancouver, 
and I am glad to report that his final summation was excellent and 
concluded with the following observation — 'Parents should be able to 
enroll their sons with confidence in this school.' Practically the only 
adverse comment in the Report referred to inadequate space to imple- 
ment our otherwise satisfactor)- Art Programme, and the action on this 
was gratifving. A group of boys, headed by Brock Higginbotham and 
under the direction of Mr. \Vood and Mr. Brookman. undertook as a 
school project not only the construction of an additional Art Room 
but also a permanent Theatre, equipped with stage, projection box, 
lighting etc., out of the old and long-disused Dining Room, \vith a 


section also set aside for the Sailing Club enthusiasts, now the largest 
single body in the School, wherein to do their thing. The result is that 
we now have an additional and valuable facility which we did not 
have before, and in the Spring Term in the new Theatre we enjoyed 
an excellent Comedy, 'A Man Full of Nothing', produced by Mr. 
Gudmundseth and Mr. Fay, with assistance from Robin and Jennifer 
Spicer and help supplied gratis by Miss Chester of 'UVIC. Some years 
ago our dramatic productions reached a high pitch of excellence, but 
became almost too much a part of the school life. Putting on the brake 
unfortunately resulted in a complete stoppage, but once again Dran:ia 
has reappeared very strongly, and I feel that its future is now assvu^ed. 

"On the extra-curricular side two things emerged : ( 1 ) the difficulty 
of maintaining interest in the Cadet Corps, and (2) the number of 
athletic successes in competition with other Schools, both Public and 
Private, and, of course, the Rugby Tour at Easter. We have had a 
Cadet Corps here since 1907 — -one of the first Cadet Subalterns was 
a boy known as Ham Roberts, who, some thirty-seven years later and 
exactly twenty-six years ago today (June 6th., 1944), then a Major- 
General, commanded the Canadian Forces at the inxasion of Nor- 
mandy — • and the deterioration in spirit and performance over the 
past three years was not only distressing but almost caused the Corps 
to disappear. This was not so much the fault of the boys or the In- 
structors, but of forces outside the control of either, and principally in 
Ottawa. However, almost at the last moment and like a 'Deus ex 
Machina' Captain Gabriel has appeared as Chief Instructor, and, as 
he is a former Area Cadet Officer for Pacific Command, an enthusiast 
and a man who knows the whole cadet business from A to Z better 
probably than anyone else in B.C., I am confident that the Corps can 
be rejuvenated completely, with a programme which the boys will want 
to follow and to continue long after the compulsory period is over. 
During this past lean period the Cadets have had practically nothing 
but foot drill and more foot drill without rifles ('square-bashing,' as 
we used to call it) , and they have most certainly had my sympathy, but 
it will be an entirely different story when the new programme is listed 
and they can see what lies ahead. We have not been alone in this un- 
happy corps situation. It has been general throughout Canada and 
also in England, where schools now adopt a compulsory period followed 
by a voluntary period, and at one school which I visited in March so 
good was the programme that the Corps contained more than one 
hundred volunteers who chose it in preference to extra time for other 

"In Inter-School competitions we have done extremely well in Rug- 
by, Sailing, Cross Country, Basketball, Cricket — the lot, not only at 
the senior level but at the junior also, and this must ensure that the 
teams of the future will maintain the level of the teams of today. In 
Rugby, by February we had the best team for some years and possibly 
the best school team in B.C. On the Spring Tour we played four games 
in England, one in Wales and, making history this time, one in Amster- 
dam against Nyenrode Junior College. Of the six matches played 
three were won, three were lost, and eighty-four points were scored 


against eighty-one, and hence we came out on top! Twenty-four boys 
were taken, all of whom played, and their performance both on and 
ofT the playing fields gave the greatest satisfaction to their Coach, Mr. 
Walsh, and to me. The fact that everywhere we went we were invited 
to come again is a pretty good tribute to the boys and to their ability 
to mix well in the different situations which confronted them. 

"Many of you will have noted the recently-increased political activity 
to obtain Go\ernment recognition of the work done by the Indepen- 
dent Schools of this Province. Some of you may have noted President 
Nixon's tribute to those of the United States in his address of March 
7th., wherein, incidentally, he noted a falling off in attendance at 
Private Schools by some ten per cent. This, of course, is happening in 
Canada too. Several Private Schools in B.C. have been obliged to close 
through financial support failing to keep up with spiralling costs. At 
present, despite much sympathy for the cause from M.L.A.s, and even 
some of those in the Cabinet, Premier Bennett fails to be moved, but, 
like water on a stone, if the pressure is kept up, then it must have some 
effect in time. Meanwhile much skilled work by teachers goes com- 
pletely unrecognized, and at the same time some 27,000 children in 
this Province arc being educated without an acknowledgement or even 
interest taken by the Ciovernment. Personally, I feel that, as the future 
of this Province will one day be affected by these same children, then 
the Government is neglecting its plain duty in completely ignoring 
their education, and if it persists in this ostrich-like attitude the eco- 
nomic facts alone will shortly force some action. In School District 
4^24, for example, one School closed last month, releasing several 
hundred children on to the Public School system and hence an annual 
additional bill for the Government which might well have been 
avoided. We are not proposing to close, of course, but it could happen, 
and it will certainly happen elsewhere with increasing frequency from 
now on. Possibly what is needed is inspection by competent officials 
appointed by the Government to ensure that the education provided 
for all these thousands of cliildren is of a satisfactory standard. Next, 
the Teachers' work should be recognized, and, lastly, financial help 
should be provided — if only on a limited scale. I am not so much 
concerned with examination privileges as I am old-fashioned enough 
to prefer external examinations, which are impersonal and the same 
for all, to the arbitrary grading of a pupil by a teacher who may find 
it, for personal reasons, even difficult to be impartial. What is now 
needed is action by M.L.A.s to overcome the opposition of that small 
but most powerful section of the Provincial Cabinet, and the M.L.A.s 
will act only if they are pressed by their constituents. 

"Returning to the year itself — always there are some staff changes 
and these are generally deplored, but sometimes we say good-bye with 
regret, as we did last year to a Master, in this case Mr. Nigel Barber, 
wiio had accepted a teaching fellowship at the University of William 
and Mary, only to report the following Speech Day that he is to return 
in September. Our Chaplain, Archdeacon Wolff, the Rector of St. 
Luke's, came to help us out in 1964 for six months only and has stayed 
for six years. I recall Mr. Harry Smith, who came from Victoria High 


School for three months and stayed for nine years. I myself came in 
1948 for one year only and have stayed for twenty-two. There must be 
some spirit in the School which holds one and it can only be the boys, 
of course. Despite their many failings — and, indeed their, at times, 
outrageous behaviour — they are still the best of companions, and I 
count it a great privilege that I have been permitted to spend so much 
of my working life among them. As is well known, officially I am not 
due to retire until 1971, but twenty-two years' Headmastering is a very 
long and exhausting time, and in the early Spring I began to feel 
extremely tired, and so I decided it would be better to retire this 
Summer rather than undertake one more year. My successor, Mr. 
Gordon, I have known as a fellow Headmaster for many years. He 
completed a distinguished career at the University of Alberta, where 
his father was Dean of English, by gaining a Rhodes Scholarship to 
Oxford. After service in the R.C.N., mostly on loan to the Royal Navy, 
where he served with Combined Operations, he returned to teach in 
Canada, and, after a spell on the Faculty of Upper Canada College, 
became Headmaster of St. John's Ravenscourt at Winnipeg, eventually 
leaving there to direct the Glenbow Foundation in Calgary. In addition 
he has found time to publish books, to contribute editorials to the 
Winnipeg Free Press and to lecture on the C.B.C. In handing over to 
Dick Gordon I know I can leave the School, which for me has been so 
long an integral part of my life, in the best possible hands. 

"University School, named in honour of a University which did not 
materialize until fifty years later, has many advantages from its proxi- 
mity to UVIC and many close ties. Distinguished Professors and visit- 
ing lecturers often find themselves in our own Barker Library — ■ last 
year, perhaps, the most distinguished of them was Sir John Bagot 
Glubb — Glubb Pasha — introduced to us by Professor Roy — and 
from the days of the late Dr. John Ewing, Principal of Victoria Col- 
lege, the parent of Victoria University, the School has been honoured 
by the visits of these distinguished Chancellors, Presidents and Deans. 
Mr. Jeffels, of course, needs no introduction to this audience, and I 
am delighted that at long last I have persuaded him to be our guest at 
this annual ceremony. It is perhaps a most significant part of Mr. 
JefTel's personality that, whereas almost all other University Registrars 
have been overwhelmed by their task, Mr. Jeffels has smilingly and 
serenely met all the challenges and risen above them. That relationship 
between students and administration at the University of Victoria is in 
such a healthy state as to be considered a model for other Universities, 
and this is due in no small part to the work of two men — Dean Wal- 
lace and Director Jeffels. The bond between this School and the 
University is very strong, and it is indeed a pleasure to welcome today 
yet one more of those links which bind us in the person of the Director 
of Admissions. 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I will now ask Mr. Jeffels to present the 
awards, and afterwards to give the address." 



Just before the ceremonies closed the President of the Old Boys 
Association, Dr. David Ballantyne, made a formal presentation to the 
Headmaster on behalf of the Association of a magnificent silver-plate 
saher. inscribed with the school crest and the following words : 

Presented by 

University School Old Boys' Association 


John J. Timmis 

in appreciation 

for his untiring efforts 

as Headmaster at University School 


Needless to say, the Headmaster was, for once, speechless, and, 
indeed, remained so long after the applause and the School Song had 

For him, at least, it had been the greatest Speech Day ever.

The Chapel is central to the daily round of the School. Each day 
begins there and each day is brought to a close with e\ening pra\ers. 
Thus the morning and exening worship frame the day's work of the 
school community. 

Although we have nothing outstanding to report, yet we do recall 
some services worthy of mention. 

At the Commencement Service, held last June, a plaque was dedi- 
cated to the Glon,' of God and in memoiy of Gordon Taylor, a student 
of the School who was killed in a tragic accident. 

The Annual Remembrance Day Service was again held on the day 
itself and the whole school company was present. Perhaps the events 
that are commemorated on Remembrance Day may now be as remote 
as the Punic Wars to the average boy, yet the observance of Remem- 
brance Day does remind us that the comparative freedom we enjoy did 
not come to us either by right or by chance. A generous offering was 
received and given to the charities of the Canadian Legion Poppy 

Our Carol Service was held on Sunday, December 15th. The lessons 
were read by masters and boys, and the singing was good. A generous 
ofTering was recei\'ed for Oxfam. 

We are now preparing for the Annual Speech Day Sei"\ice, to be 
held on June 7th. 

Our warmest thanks to the Officers of the Chapel :

First Fifteen 

The successes of this year's XV have done much to raise the Scliool's 
Rugby from the doldrums into which it had slipped during the past 
two seasons. Sixteen matches were played, thirteen of which were vic- 
tories, and this improvement spared the Team the indignity of a third 
season languishing at the foot of the Independent Schools League. 

With only five members of last year's XV returning in September, 
much depended on those who had been promoted from the junior 
sides. In this department none did better than Briggs, an erstwhile star 
of the 5th. XV. Without possessing any of the natural attributes re- 
quired by a scrum half, he still continued to provide Ree\es with a 
workable, if somewhat erratic, service. 

The forwards possessed no one of any real size, leaxing them with a 
marked disadvantage in the set pieces. This deficiency was largely 
overcome by a low and solid shove generated from the front five, allied 
to Tunnicliflfe's fast striking. Spicer attained some success at the con- 
ventional line-out with well-timed deflections, but far greater use \vas 
made of shortened line, and long throw, where Dade was never mas- 
tered. Aided by accurate throwing from the wings, he frequently set in 
motion strong attacking movements, having first surged across the 
advantage line and committed several members of the opposition 

In the backs Reeves was occasionally hampered by the erratic qualitv 
of Briggs' service, but his cjuick acceleration and sidestep often brought 
the best out of the opposing cover. The midfield featured Singleton's 
strong running and relentless tackling, backed up by his co-centre. 
Dykes, whose skill frequently belied his awk\vard gait. On the wings 
McDonald and Rainsford demonstrated contrasting styles of play: 
McDonald made the most of his powerful stride with dangerous spurts 
on the outside, while the diminutive Rainsford's scurrying inside blasts 
were always liable to wrong-foot the cover defence. 

Both fonvards and backs were much less sure in defence. Far too 
frequently last-ditch tackling and Smith's ingenuity were left to com- 
pensate for basic weaknesses, notably around the fringes of the scrum. 

The optimism engendered by three conxincing victories over Public 
Schools received a sharp set-back in the first match against Shawnigan. 
The opening minutes, however, were promising: Reeves rattled the 
crossbar with an attempted drop-goal, and moments later Dade \\as 
felled only inches away from a try. Having survived this initial on- 
slaught the Shawnigan side steadied ; their powerful mobile pack began 
to wear down the school eight, and, following a succession of narrow 
escapes, the Shawnigan No. 8 forced his way through some lax co\-er- 
ing to open the score. During the second half the School attack was 
confined to individual sorties, as the Shawnigan pack became increas- 
ingly dominant. The School line sur\'ived precariously until the last ten 


minutes, when the defence finally crumbled and Shawnigan had little 
trouble in adding three late goals. 

The following Saturday, against Brentwood, the School were three 
points in arrears within minutes of the kick ofT. A s\viftly-taken short 
penalty allowed Brentwood to saunter through a lackadaisical home 
defence for an unconverted tr\-. Reco\ering from this early set-back, 
the pack began to contain Brentwood in the line-out. and control most 
of the set and loose scrums. From a swift strike by TunniclifTe Briggs 
fed McDonald, who moved past the scrum on the open side, before 
handing on to Stelck. for liim to score near the corner. Meeker con- 
\erted with an impressive kick, and the School changed ends enjoying 
a slender two-point lead. During the second half Brentwood pressed 
strongly and, with only two minutes left, regained the lead through a 
penalty, rapidly followed by a drop goal. The chance of victory seemed 
to have eluded the School again, but the home pack had other ideas. 
Continuing to win good possession, and pinning Brentwood deep in 
their own half, Singleton fastened on to a loose ball, and fed Mc- 
Donald, who burst through to score. Minutes later Reeves moved 
smartly to the blind side, timing his pass beautifully, to send in Mc- 
Donald unopposed for his second try. A five point lead would appear 
to have clinched the game, but Brentwood found time to dispossess 
Reeves, and work the ball to their wing for him to score a last-minute 
trv\ Hinson was left with the unen\iable task of trying to sa\e the 
game, but his conversion kick flew wide, giving the School its first 
victory since 1965. 

Neither match against St. George's produced the high standard of 
football witnessed in the Brent\vood game. Both teams were guilty of 
an abundance of basic errors, and the spirited St. George's defence 
never allo\\'ed the School back division to achie\e their rhythm. Only 
in the last quarter of each match did the school pack dominate; dur- 
ing this time both Dade and Reeves were given sufficient latitude to 
take full advantage of defensive errors and turn them into tries. 

Any hope of repeating the heady triumph over Brentwood \\as 
obliterated in the opening phases of the return match, when the school 
team was comprehensi\ely outplayed in ever)- aspect of the game. The 
home side, taking every advantage of the school's brittle defence, scored 
sixteen points in as many minutes. Fortunately Brentwood eased their 
effort and a possible cricket score was averted. Just before half time 
Reeves reduced the lead with a simple penalty goal. Perhaps the ad- 
monitions to his team by the injured Meeker had some connection with 
the transfonnation of the pack on the resumption of play. Showing far 
more determination they began to get the better of the fiery exchanges 
in the loose, and from this possession Ree\es and Singleton began to 
exploit gaps in the hitherto-sealed Brentwood defence. Two tries 
brought the school within striking distance of their opponents' total. 
but twice in the closing stages superb covering tackles brought down 
McDonald in full flight, and at the final whistle the school was still 
trailing by five points. 

A high wind prexented either side from achie\ing any fluency in 
the second fixture with Shawnigan. Soon after the start Dade and 


Smith left each other to clear a loose ball near their line, then watched 
mesmerised as an alert Shawnigan back nipped between them to score 
between the posts. At the end of the half, played down-wind, the 
school had only a single try to show for much hard endeavour by the 
forwards. After the interval the defence became increasingly casual. 
Twice the Shawnigan fly half carved huge openings through the cover, 
each break resulting in a try. After Dykes had been injured, Shawni- 
gan increased their lead to thirteen points before the school's most dis- 
appointing performance was brought to a close. 


During the Easter term a further four matches were played; two 
against Royal Roads, one against Claremont and a third fixture against 
Shawnigan. Claremont, the local champions, were beaten for the second 
time in a match where amphibious tactics were the order of the day 
(at the appropriately-named Beaver Park). The game also allowed 
Hall to make a notable debut — splashing fully eighty yards at speed 
to score the opening try. 

At Royal Roads the backs wasted possession with such extravagance 
that the home side was able to build up a half-time 13-0 lead, in spite 
of being outplayed at foi-ward. Malevolent mutterings from the pack 
must have been overheard, for within minutes of the restart the scores 
were levelled, and as the running of the backs increased in fluency 
another fifteen points were added. 

The result of the third fixture with Shawnigan was in doubt until 
the last minute. The lead had changed hands several times before 
Rainsford scored the match-winner. Receiving the ball in a most un- 
promising situation, he cut inside and darted past a maze of bemused 
Shawnigan defenders for a fine opportunist score. Meeker's neive and 
right boot were equal to the occasion and the con\'ersion brought vic- 
tory by a single point. 

In the second game at Royal Roads the school team pro\'ed them- 
selves more adept at overcoming the atrocious conditions to complete 
a successful term's Rugby with an 11-0 victory.

'TOUR 1970' 

After the idea of an Easter Rugby Tour to Japan had proved im- 
practicable, there seemed little hope of making alternative arrange- 
ments at such a late juncture in the season. Thanks, however, to the 
accommodating nature of a number of Schools in the U.K.. our tenta- 
tive inquiries became definite fixtures, and a si.x-match tour was 
arranged for the last two \\-eeks in March. 

The tour opened at Canford. where the school showed few signs of 
weariness from the flight and the nine-hour adjustment to British Stan- 
dard Time. Meeker opened the scoring with a penalty, which was 
consolidated by two further tries before half time. Canford were unable 
to cope with the running of Reeves and Singleton, and after the inter- 
val clever inter-passing between forwards and backs increased the score. 
to give the school a convincing win. This initial victory ga\e the tour a 
heartening start and augured well for the stronger opposition of Har- 
row and Epsom. 

Earlv in the game at Harrow, the fatigue from tra\-el and the previ- 
ous day's match was much in e\idence. The fonvards, lacking the 
leadership of the injured Meeker, \vere singularly lacking in fire and 
drive, while outside the scrum there was even less purpose. Briggs was 
constantly under pressure, and the passing of the whole team was dis- 
tinctly wa\-\\ard. Most of the attack was left to rely upon mistakes by 
their opponents, and from a strong pass to the Harrow wing Hall 
gathered the ball and the resultant try kept school hopes alive until 
half time. In the second half the school ^\•as badly beaten in mid-field 
by two strong-running centres, and onh- desperate defence prevented 
additional scores. The cover hung on gamely, but \vith resources of 
stamina practically drained the defence collapsed and the Harrow- 
backs ran riot in the closing stages of the game. 

After a day's rest it was hoped that the less testing opposition at 
Eton would provide a chance to restore some of the morale lost in the 
chastening experience at Harrow. Shortly after the start Meeker left 
the field for good with a recurrence of a rib injury, and from this point 
the team seemed to lose all its cohesion. Dade, Spicer, \^allance and 
Meeker H all worked hard to little avail in the loose, whereas Eton 
made the most of their complete monopoly in the set. Here, Throne 



suffered a Hooker's nightmare, barely winning a single ball throughout 
the match. The rising frustration of the team was clearly illustrated 
when Roxburgh, having been penalized for a crooked put-in, sped 
twenty yards to escape the blows of his hotly-pursuing pack leader, an 
irate Meeker II. Play continued to be scrappy, and with only seconds 
reinaining Eton gained the decisive score: the unfortunate Roxburgh 
failed to locate Ree\es and his pass was gratefully accepted by an Eton 
flanker, \vho touched clown near the posts. 

Added to the disappointment of losing to Eton, half the reserves 
were rendered inactive through injury, so that most of the team at 
Epsom faced the prospect of their fourth match in six days. Once, 
howe\er, the tension of the opening minutes had been overcome, there 
followed the best rugby of the tour, while the first try was as good as 
any scored in the season. A controlled deflection from Spicer at the 
line-out was rapidly mo\ed to Smith, who had joined the line outside 
Rainsford. Two huge dummies from Smith wrong-footed the defence 
before the ball \vas moved back, via several pairs of hands, to Hall on 
the opposite wing, who raced over for a fine tr)'. Playing with the slope 
in the second half, Epsom came more into the game, but were still un- 
able to pierce a resolute defence. Eventually Smith was caught out of 
position, the ball was lost from the ensuing scrum and Epsom regained 
the lead with a con\erted try. From this point the school seemed to 
lose heart, and Epsom found time to add two further tries before the 
final \vhistle. 

Amidst the picturesque surroundings of the Atlantic College grounds, 
the School were soon in trouble. A gash to the cheek had remo\ed 
Roxburgh, and casual covering had allo\ved Atlantic to score two tries, 
a lead which might have been increased but for the home side's in- 


clifTerent finishing. Following the intenal Reeves reduced the lead 
with a well-judged penalty before Hall demonstrated his talents by 
scoring three rousing tries by fast and intelligent running. Morgan's 
perfomiance at full back (a makeshift) is also worthy of mention, if 
only for his cavalier incursions into the back division, which unfortu- 
nately all took place on the wrong side of the touch-line. 

The tour ^\•as completed by a match against Nyenrode, a business 
School some twenty miles from Amsterdam. The Dutch side began 
with great elan, but after losing an early lead, lungs and legs failed 
them and the School romped to a comfortable victor)'. Undoubtedly 
the highlight of the gam.e belonged to Keenlyside, whose outrageous 
flourish in the act of scoring almost cost him his moment of glor)', by 
losing control of the ball. 

The victor)- over Nyenrode balanced out the number of games won 
and lost, and the lavish hospitality enjoyed after the match brought a 
highly-rewarding toin- to a fitting conclusion.

SMITH (full back) — ^ An entertaining full back, whose manner of defence 
was definitely not for the faint-hearted. Tackled only in emergency, using his 
considerable powers of contortion and legcr-demain to extricate himself from 
dangerous situations, many of which were self-inflicted. His long kick to 
touch was used well in defence, while his ability to drop goals and incursive 
running into the line greatly added to the team's scoring potential. 

RAINSFORD (left wing) — ^ Lacked real speed, but his sidestep and quick 
acceleration made him an elusive runner. In defence a safe and determined 

DYKES (centre) — His loping stride enabled him to cover the ground faster 
than his awkward movements suggested. Capable of selling a convincing 
dummy in attack, but still has to master the art of taking and giving a pass 
at speed. 

SINGLETON (centre) — A hard and straight-running centre. Combined well 
with Reeves in attack and was quick to take advantage of the loose ball in 
broken play. An uncompromising tackier in defence. 

McDonald (right wing) — ■ Used his size and powerful stride to telling effect, 
although apt to run straight at the cover defence when his speed and swerve 
would have taken him clear. Sound and unruffled in defence. 

REEVES (fly half) — -Confident and incisive running, allied to liberal use of 
a dummy and sidestep, made him the chief threat to the opposition's defence. 
An accomplished kicker of the ball, towards the end of the season he had 
begun to use the box-kick with particular skill. In defence effective, but 
sometimes hesitant to stop his opposite number breaking close to the scrum. 

BRIGGS (scrum half) — Although his pass varied in height and lacked dis- 
tance, he formed a good understanding with Reeves. Developed a useful 
break but wasted some of his efforts by put-ins to the set scrum so crooked 
that even the most myopic of Referees would not have been deceived. 

MEEKER I (prop) (Captain) — His unflustered Captaincy gave a firm meas- 
ure of stability to a team always liable to fall victim to its own temperament. 
He set a good example to his team by his own consistent performances on the 
field, and his reliable place-kicking added the conversion points to many of 
the season's tries. 

TUNNICLIFFE (hooker) — Fast-striking in the set and alert to the bouncing 
ball at the front of the line-out. Compensated for lack of poundage by speed 
in the loose and a flair for rrmning with the ball. 

MEEKER II (prop) — A strong and durable forward. Together with his twin 
formed solid and hard-scrummaging support for the hooker. Thrived on the 
more rugged aspects of the game and was particularly effective in prising the 
ball out of loose mauls. 

SPICER (2nd. row) — ^ Without ever enjoying a size advantage over his op- 
ponents, he still won much useful possession by skilful deflections from the 
line-out. Hard-working in the loose and a good covering forward, but never 
fully at ease with the ball in hand. 

VALLANCE (2nd. row) — ^ Lacked sufficient height to be an effective jumper, 
but gave good support at the line-out. Weak handling never allowed him to 
make full use of his considerable mobility in the loose. 

MORGAN (break) — Once he had overcome his weak positional sense, he 
became a useful member of the back row. Essentially a defensive player, the 
school line was saved on several occasions by his assiduous covering. 

STELCK I (no. 8) — -On his day the most polished forward in the pack. A 
strong and elusive runner with the ball, he initiated many attacks lay linking 
cleverly with the halves. A sound coverer, but apt to be casual in defence 
around the base of the scrum. 

DADE (break) — An outstanding member of the team. His fast breaking and 
marauding helped stifle opposition attacks, whilst his adroit running and 
handling in the loose were of the highest calibre. Volubility was his only 
fault; apart from distracting his fellow-forwards, his perpetual monologue 
during matches more than once incurred the referee's displeasure. 




At full strength the 2nd. XV were not easily overcome, but were 
never able to compensate for the loss of McPhee and Fellner I. These 
two provided the basis of the team, and both produced a number of 
creditable performances for the senior team. McPhee added solidity 
and experience to the back division, while Fellner's fiery example 
among the forwards urged on the rest of the pack to greater effort. 
Roxburgh and Steuart combined well at half-back, but insufficient 
speed and hesitancy in defence afflicted the entire back division. Miller 
I and McCarten I gave Fellner full support in the forwards, and 
Throne impro\-ed rapidly to become a competent hooker. Throughout 
the season Cosentino, as a Captain, conducted operations successfully 
and sensibly, and continually strove to bring the best out of his side. 

Results were: Played 9, Won 3, Lost 6; Points for 71, against 135. 



It is very difficult to put into words one's thoughts concerning a 3rd. 
and 4th. XV. They inevitably live in the shadow of the "cream" of the 
school, and injuries and calls to higher levels often left the group 
depleted. However, with hard training and sweat sessions at the be- 
ginning of the season the 3rd. XV, particularly, began to show some 
aptitude for the game. With a full and regular fixture list they showed 
commendable spirit and determination, particularly against the local 
junior schools. The three-quarter line proved to be the strong point of 
the team, and many tries resulted from some fine running, especially 
against St. George's (29-3) on a dry ground. 

The 4th. XV, however, changed from week to week and suffered 
some heavy losses. Nevertheless, great credit must go to McLennan, 
who never gave up hope that they would win, and there was much joy 
in the 4th. XV camp when St. George's were beaten 9-3 — a well- 
deserved victory. 

Boys must learn that this is a team game, and that the basic funda- 
mentals of passing and receiving a ball and tackling are all-important 
— this was not always the case. Considering that many boys had not 
touched a rugby ball before, the 'B' group managed a fair season, with 
hopes for the future. 

My thanks go to Cornwall, Wilder and McLennan, who acted as 
Captains, and to Air. Pollard, who refereed many a difficult match. 




This was a disastrous season for the Senior Coks, as all games against 
other Independent Schools were lost, some by huge margins. There 
were exceptions, of course, but in the main the material axailable was 
well belo\v average, and with the general lack of ability there was a 
corresponding lack of spirit. Certain individuals could always be relied 
upon to give of their best, and such a one was Jamieson, while Consi- 
dine II, Cameron, Powell, Swofford, Stelck II and MacEwing were 
also dependable performers. 



It is often the unenviable task of a Rugby Coach to select the team 
after the training period and the trial games — this situation did not 
arise, as the training squad was fifteen in number. (For those un- 
familiar with the strange game — it takes fifteen to make a team.) 

This is the first year that the Junior Junior Colts have played in 
competition games and the Junior Junior Colts quickly established 
themsehes as the form team of the school. The st\le of Rugby played 
was unique, with each member of the team contributing his own dis- 
tinctive style of play. This pot-pourri of techniques often resulted in 
confusion amongst the team itself, but it proved most effective, as the 
J.J.C.'s put up wins against Shawnigan, St. Michael's, Glenlyon, Mount 
Newton, Richmond and Cliffside and a drawn game against Brentwood. 

The highlight of the season was the return game against Shawnigan, 
which was played on the school's No. 1 pitch with the entire school as 
spectators. Pre-match ballyhoo included a "talk" to the team by the 
school Prefects, and then to the sound of stick on garbage can the 
Junior Juniors were cheered on to the field. In such an important 
fixture as this it is often the strategy to keep a secret weapon in reseive 
— a forward who plays well within himself for most of the game only 
to reach his peak in the final minutes of the contest, and often having 
that extra energy to score the winning try. The school had such a man, 
and those privileged to watch the game saw a sight never to be for- 
gotten. With only seconds remaining in the game a bird-like figure, 
Francois Xavier Cabanas, was dra\vn into a ruck (though some say 
he was pushed) only to rise phoenix-like not \vith the ball at toe, but 
with some mud on his knees. This supreme efTort was not required, as 
the school had dominated all phases of the play to win 20-3. 



GREEN ■ — A human rocket, launching himself into the path of attackers. 
WICK — Always ready with a word of scorn directed at his own team. 
FREISTADT — Knew all about the game before the first match. 
CABANAS — "The Flying Spaniard." 
WITTER — Ne\er in danger of injury. 
HARDMAN — A broken ankle for his troubles. 

MAC.\ULAY "l j - ^^"g^""' °/ P^"^'^^'" 'P^^^- 

D.\LZIEL — Trouble with wandering eyes. 

CR.-\IG — "The Spider:'' often hid behind the Referee. 

ROBERTSON — "You useless log." (P.K.F.) 

McC.\RTEN II — A power-house. 

L.\UDER — "The Hog." (Wick & McCarten II) 

LEWIS — Linesman extraordinary and gainer of many yards. 

SNOW^ — Aided and abetted Lewis. 

In the words of "Spider" Craig, "when half a rugby team stand back to back, 
and stretch from the post to the swimming pool, then all must tackle low and 
hard and ask questions later." 



Cricket once again occupied a prominent place in the Summer 
schedule. The Clayton Cup Competition, in which there were some 
very exciting finishes, and the House Matches were maintained. 

Of the five matches enjo\ed by the 1st. XI, one was won, one drawn 
and three lost. The batting improved considerably, and good innings 
were played by Reeves, Roxburgh, Keenlyside, Fellner I and McLen- 
nan. They never came off together, ho\vever, and it was always a one- 
man show. The bowling, which promised well, disappointed. Fellner II 
\vas fairly successful, but really only Reeves, always a determined 
competitor, showed any staying po\ver. The fielding was patchy, but 
Roxburgh, Reeves and Keenlyside were always ven^ good. Reeves. 18 
wickets, and Fellner II. 16 wickets, did most of the bowling, \vhile 
Fellner I, Reeves, Keenlvside, Roxburgh and McLennan had a batting 
average over 10. 

The 1st Ele\en was as follo\vs: 

J. M. Tunnicliffe fCaptainL J. A. Meeker. R. J. R. Roxburgh, M. 
R. Reeves, M. E. Fellner, M. J. McLennan, M. R. C. Briggs, G. J. 
Fellner, S. Keenlyside, D. McPhee and R. M. Throne. 


School V. Oak Bay C.C. 

It \\as not to be expected that the School would give Oak Bay C.C. 
much of a game, and they did \\ell to make 66, both Roxburgh and 
Fellner I just reaching double figures. The School tried seven bowlers, 
but none made much impression, and Oak Bay won by eight \vickets. 


School V. St. George's School 
The School, batting first against St. George's, would have fared 
badly but for a patient innings of 30 by Roxburgh. When St. George's 
batted Fellner II took quick wickets, but then catch after catch was 
dropped and it was desperately close before Reexes finished off the 
innings, taking six for 32. Fellner II took four for 29, and the School 
won by two runs. 

School V. Shawnigan Lake School 
Shawnigan's batsmen opened well and a large score was in prospect, 
but the later batsmen were dismissed cheaply and the innings closed for 
123. The School were indebted to Fellner II, who took seven for 41, an 
excellent perfonnance. Keenlyside took a good catch. The School 
started their innings dismally but were rescued first by Reeves, who 
played a sensible innings, and then by Fellner I, who, c|uite undeterred 
by pace at one end and swing at the other, hit hard and often. He was 
favoured with some luck, of course, but it was a confident and coura- 
geous effort, which produced 44 runs, the highest score hit for the 
School during the season. It was not enough to ensure victory, but in 
reaching 100 the School had made a creditable reply. 

School V. Shawnigan Lake School 

The return game at Shawnigan resulted in a draw very much in 
Shawnigan's favour. After early success the school bowling became 
very loose. There were also expensive misses in the field, and Shawni- 
gan was able to declare at 118 for nine. The school innings was domi- 
nated by Keenlyside, who used his reach well in playing forward and 
drove straight when the opportunity arose. His 32 was an excellent 
effort and enabled the School, who were 53 for six at the close, to earn 
a draw\ 

School v. St. George's School 

The School fielded first in Vancouver and made a good start when 
half the opposition were back in the pavilion with 40 runs on the 
board. The bowling then went to pieces. There was minor panic and 
major frustration before the innings closed for 85. Reeves alone bowled 
with determination, and took four for 20 in the process. Throne took a 
good catch and Reeves an excellent one. 

The School opened their innings and promptly lost three wickets for 
two runs. McLennan, 29, and Reeves, 30, then produced the longest 
and the best partnership of the season. Both played restrained and 
sensible cricket, playing the bowling on its merits. When Reeves left, 
most unluckily, they had steered the School into what should have been 
a safe position — six wickets for 70 runs. Meeker I then came in to hit 
13 in quick time, and the score was seven for 83. There \vas no further 
scoring, however, as McLennan, McPhee and Fellner II fell to suc- 
cessive balls, and with Throne also failing to score the School lost by 
two runs. The unnecessary delay in disposing of the St. George's tail- 
enders cost the School the match. 




Sta?iding: R. Roxburgh, Q. Meeker, M. Throne, G. Fellner, 

S. Keenlyside, M. McLennan. 

Seated: M. Briggs, J. Meeker, J. Tunnicliffe (Capt.), M. Reeves, \I. Fellner. 


TUNNICLIFFE (Captain) — An improved batsman, especially on the oflF side 
in front of the wicket, but he never came off in matches. In practice he 
bowled reasonably well, but again failed in the important games. He should 
remember that a bowler of his type rnust expect to be hit. His catching has 
much improved but he is still weak on the ground. He is keen to a degree 
but is far too excitable, and failed to do himself justice in consequence. 

ROXBURGH — With the bat he was fairly successful but he was unhappy 
playing back and failed to use his feet. A very fine fielder both on the ground 
and in the air. 

MEEKER I — Essentially a hitter he was somewhat unfortunate with the bat 
and seldom came off. Very keen and useful in the field. 

REEVES — A vastly improved player. With the bat he has acquired a reason- 
able defence and he treated short bowling roughly. With the ball he was 
steady as to length and direction and was not easily discouraged. In the field 
he anticipated, possessed very safe hands and had a strong and accurate 

KEENLYSIDE — ■ Somewhat impetuous with the bat but possessed some power- 
ful shots in front of the wicket and on the leg side. He has come on with the 
ball but failed in matches because he tried to bowl too fast and was too taut 
and unrelaxed. Excellent in the field and keen to a degree. 

McLENNAN — Greatly improved with the bat. He has acquired a good defence 
and possesses some wristy shots on the off side. He is also beginning to play 
well off his legs. In the field he is slow on the ground, but his catching has 
improved. Extremely keen and promising. 


FELLNER I — Unpolished with the bat and lacking in defence. He is, how- 
ever, confident, aggressive and unfriendly to the bowler, and has played 
some useful innings. Very good in the field. 

FELLNER II — A bowler of distinct promise. At present he is not determined 
enough and rather easily discouraged. He has had quite a good season and 
there are many wickets in store for him with a little more experience, and 
steel in his attitude. 

BRIGGS — A very-greatly-improved wicket keeper. He is now taking the ball 
more cleanly and becoming a real threat to the batsman. Very agricultural 
with the bat. 

McPHEE — Uncertain wath the bat but looked promising on occasion. In the 
field he was slow on the ground and lacked anticipation, but his catching 
was adequate. 

THRONE — With the bat he has some idea of defence, but is too stiff and 
awkward at present. Not without promise with the ball and should be useful 
next year. Good in the field. 



Four teams participated in the Clayton Cup Competition. Two 
rounds \vere played, and Reeves' XI were the \\inners, with Tunni- 
cliffe's XI strong contenders. 

The Holms Cup, awarded to the House Champions, was won by 
Winslow House, but the games were disappointing. 

Ree\es, \vho had a very good season, won the bat presented by the 
University School Incogs to the best all-round cricketer in the School, 
and Colours were awarded to Reeves, Keenlyside, Fellner I and Tunni- 



Standing: J. Finamore, T. Miles, S. Wiley, A. Bigliardi, P. Finamore, D. Lauder

Junior Cricket gained sufficient numbers at the start of the Summer 
teiTn to warrant the formation of an additional games group compris- 
ing Grades VII and VIII. Players from both junior games were used 
in the Junior XI, which played seven, won three, lost three and dre\v 

The \ictory over Shawnigan was won by the narrowest of margins. 
Iverson, who enjoyed more than his fair share of luck, together with 
Lauder added nine improbable runs for the last wicket to give the 
Team their first win of the season. In contrast to this success, the Team 
\vas twice overwhelmed by St. George's, who were vastly superior in all 
departments of the game. 

Iverson and Considine II bore the brunt of the bowling, while \Viley 
proved to be the most consistent of the batsmen. Wick and Bigliardi 
both demonstrated their potential as all-rounders, and Finamore I 
sliould develop into a useful batsman when his nerves cease to plague 
him at the crease. 

Iverson, in spite of some bizarre ideas on field-placing, led the Team 
well. He set a good example by his own performance \vith both bat 
and ball, and his cheerful presence in the field did much to maintain 
team spirit throughout the season. 




In the Independent Schools' Competition the School put up some 
creditable performances, though not always winning ones, and in the 
final analysis the fact that we had three junior j^layers in the six-man 
squad augurs \vell for future years. 

In competition against St. George's we came up against a team \vith 
great strength and depth. In the singles Copeland was the only school 
winner, while Stelck II battled for two hours before leg cramp and 
exhaustion gave the last games of the third set to his opponent — a 
ver\' creditable performance. In the doubles the School \vas defeated in 
the three matches, but in the match with Stelck I and Burrows paired 
against the No. 1 team of St. George's we saw some of the best tennis 
of the season, with these two boys playing well above their ability. 
McLennan and Dykes took a set from the St. George's No. 2 team. The 
style of these two boys often frustrates the opponents, and they make 
outrageous errors — hence the second set to the School. 

Brentwood proved too strong and they were undefeated in the 
singles and the doubles. Again, the School were not outclassed as the 
result would indicate. 

Only the singles were played against Shawnigan and this resulted in 
two wins to each side — winners for the School being Burrows and 
Stelck II. The conditions for this match were so poor that the standard

of tennis suffered. Most approached the conditions with a spirit of 
devil-may-care, though Stelck I was audible above the elements with his 
comment that they would not play under such conditions at Wimble- 
don (if the sun had been shining a case of sunstroke would have been 
diagnosed ) . 

Social matches were played against St. Alargaret's, the Victoria 
Racquets Club and Oak Bay Tennis Club. These games were most 
enjoyable and the standard of competition was high. 

With the advent of the steel-framed racquet the familiar sound of 
ball on wood is becoming a thing of the past, though many of the 
school players were heard asking about the possibility of a "re-wood." 

The School Team was: Stelck I (Captain), Burrows, Stelck II, 
Dykes, McLennan and Copeland. 



A keen interest has been shown throughout the year in Basketball, 
and a full fixture list has given us the opportunity to participate regu- 
larly throughout the Winter months. 

This year we entered the Victoria City and District Evening League, 
and we enjoyed some keen competition against local Schools and Clubs. 
Practices were held on Tuesdays and matches played on Thursdays. 
While we lacked the experience shown by the "City" boys, the School 
performed very creditably (particularly against Oak Bay) . 

This, of course, all led up to our "Finest Hour," \vhen we won the 
Independent Schools' Competition, held at St. George's, 67-65, in a 
most thrilling Final. We held off a tremendous rally and kept cool 
under the greatest pressure at the end. Dykes led a fine squad, and 
perhaps we produced our best Basketball of the year. 

A lot of credit must go to Ken Wilkie, an Old Boy, who showed great 
knowledge of (and keen interest in) the game. W^e were sorry to see 
him leave at the end of the Spring term. 

Good luck to the Team next year! 



DYKES (Captain) (Centre) — ^A consistent and well-balanced player. On 

offence he fed well, and occasionally scored high. On defence he excelled in 

blocking shots and getting rebounds. 
McDonald (Guard) — ^ Good hands and quick, intelligent moves made him 

the side's best scoring threat. His jump shot was elusive and rarely missed the 

mark. He made many successful fast breaks and was a valuable asset on the 

boards, .^n outstanding player. 
D.\DE (Forward) — Although he had a tendency to play out of position, he 

showed signs of usefulness. He possessed a consistent foul shot and rebounded 



HALL ( Forward ) — A natural athlete, he played consistently and improved 
as the season progressed. He drove well to the basket and possessed an ac- 
curate, although somewhat unorthodox, shot. 

SWOFFORD (Guard) — ^ He brought the ball up court well and had a fairly 
accurate outside shot. A player of promise. 

Other members of the Team included: McLennan, Cameron, Steuart, Lokken 
and Throne. 

Craig M. Dykes, Captain. 


The Badminton Club has had a successful season. This year we 
teamed with Norfolk House School under the supervision of Miss 
Thom. It was decided to begin early, and, in fact, Badminton was 
pla)ed e\ery Saturday morning throughout the first term. The league 
games began in the second tenn, and we met with moderate success. 
However, the schedule began too late for us to complete all our games 
in that temi. 

The Badminton Club seems to ha\e been dominated by the Senior 
School in the past, and it would be a welcome sight to find a Junior or 
two turning out to practise next term. 

Thanks are due particularly to Considine for his efforts to organise 
ever\-one, and to the manv non-plaving Scorers. 



Mr. McOrmond and Mr. Brookman undertook coaching for the 
Team this year. It was composed of: Fowler (Captain). Blackwood, 
Jamieson, Stelck I. Stelck II, SwofTord, Heffernan, Britten, Stewart, 
Choi, Shanaman, Girouard, Miller II, Scott and Firth. 

The main event, the Independent Schools Championship, sa\v us 
win the Junior Trophy by half as many points as our nearest competi- 
tor. Those taking first places were: Stelck I, Stelck II, Jamieson, Black- 
wood and Britten. The Free Relay Team was composed of: Stelck II, 
Jamieson. Blackwood and Britten: the Medley Relay of the same 

Tliis report must of necessity be left unfinished, as the Inter-House 
Finals are yet to take place. 

Colours (to date) have been awarded to Fowler and Jamieson.

Scuba diving has continued on a much-reduced level. The majority 
of the Club was last year's Grade XII, which left us a mere five active 
members to form the nucleus for this year's Club. This small, but 
experienced, squad of divers has managed to explore Elk Lake, Saanich 
Inlet and along the West coast to China Beach and Botannical Beach, 
where we (mainly Mr. Pollard) had to push the bus up a rough bank 
knee-deep in mud. 

In this last term diving lessons have begun again, with a changed 
policy in the Club to encourage more Junior inembers of the School to 
participate, so that we maintain a reasonable number of qualified 
divers from year to year, rather than lose a large proportion and have 
to rebuild. 



The revival of Fencing as a School Sport has been requested by 
many boys during the year. The main limitation would appear to be 
the lack of a source of equipment. However, a few Senior boys did 
manage to meet one evening a week to learn the fundamentals — using 
borrowed equipment. 

We hope that this may be an encouraging beginning to a fascinating 
and highly-competitive Sport. 



Skiing has been limited this year mainly because of a failure to 
return to School with skis. The cost of staying overnight and hiring 
equipment would appear prohibitive. Only one trip was managed to 
Forbidden Plateau. 

We left on a Friday evening and drove through heavy rain to Cour- 
tenay, where we retired very discouraged. However, Saturday and 
Sunday provided good powder-snow conditions — making our trip 
well worth-while. 

Perhaps we could ALL return next tenn prepared to ski!

This has been the most successful year yet for the Boat and Sailing 
Club. A great deal of new equipment was added to the existing para- 
phernalia — a ten h.p. and a twenty-five h.p. outboaid engine, four 
Fhing Juniors with riggings, two more Sabots, another hydroplane, an 
"Imp", a ski-boat and a crash-boat. It has been said that the Club now 
has the facilities to ha\e a third of the school afloat at one time. 

Commodores Cornwall and Higginbotham co-headcd the Club this 
year, and were in charge of operations in the Boat Club. 

With our expanded fleet of boats the Club has had to have assistance 
with transporting bodies to the water, and Mr. Price, an old member, 
kindly offered his services. Daily throughout the Summer term the 
Cordova Bay and the Oak Bay convoys have pulled out of the school, 
filled to the brim with boys, engines and all sorts of sailing equipment. 

Activities this year have included sailing, water-skiing, scuba-diving, 
hydroplaning and the occasional swim. To initiate new members a 
"polar bear" swim took place at Cordova Bay in the first week of the 
Summer tenn, and it is significant that not one case of "out of bounds" 
sailing has occurred this year. Formality was reduced to a bare mini- 
mum, yet all club members were aware of their responsibilities. As an 
example of this type of conditioning — we are able to launch, rig and 
start to sail within five minutes of arrival at the dock. 

The sailors did ver)' well this year, as a result of their training and 
tips from Mr. Wood. They defeated Brentwood and Shawnigan Lake 
— both strong teams. 

The facilities have been increased and improved at Cordova Bay, 
thanks to Mrs. Keble, who has been kind enough to let us have her 
Boat House and beach; and at the School, where the Boat Room has 
new tools and supplies. 

There has been one man who has been helping us eveiy step of the 
way. Through the guidance and tireless efforts of Mr. Wood the Boat 
Club has achieved its highest standard ever. Mr. Wood, the entire 
Boat and Sailing Club's thanks are extended to you for helping to 
make the Club the success that it is ! 

David D. Cornwall, Commodore. 


Colours have been awarded, for the first time, this year. The recipi- 
ents were Britten, Dennis and Copeland. Their respective crews — 
Heffernan, Venables and Powell — were a\\ardecl Crewing Badges, in 
recognition of the team effort recjuired. Rainsford and Singleton com- 
pleted the Sailing Eight, but, owing to their heavy Grade XII academic 
load, they were unable to participate in all Regattas. 

In addition to the Regattas (at home and away) against Brentwood, 
Shawnigan and Glenlyon, we were the guests of the Hollyburn Sailing 
Club in Vancouver on the Saturday prior to the Independent Schools 
Regatta. Overnight accommodation at the Club was made a\ailable 


and University School is grateful for their kindness and hospitality, 
which we hope to return in the near future.

Royal \^ancouver Yacht Club under the direction of Mr. Dorchester, 
proved to be, once again, a great success. The results of this, and other 
Regattas, are given below. The heavy winds which prexailed through 
the series of three races tired our light and young crews. However, 
they sailed very well indeed to place second overall. Britten, the Cap- 
tain of Racing, placed second in points, Copeland fourth and Dennis 
seventh out of a field of twelve. 

The second inter-House competition resulted in some very fine sail- 
ing and a great deal of enthusiastic support from the rest of the School. 
For the first time the Sabots and El Toros were raced in conjunction 
with the Flying Juniors, and their points counted towards the Trophy. 
Winslow emerged first (18% points), with Bolton second (25) and 
Barnacle third (3I/4). 

Our thanks are due to Mesdames Neal, Yardley, Morris and Hous- 
ton for organizing the very successful Sailing Club Christmas Hamper 
Raffle, to Safeways, Hocking and Forbes and the "Bay" for providing 
the gift certificates and prizes ; and to all who bought tickets. 

Our special thanks go, again, to Mrs. Keble, for the use of her 
premises, to Mr. Postle, for the use of his very fast El Tore, and to Keith 
Price, for his help as Assistant Sailing Instructor and for the way in 
which he handled and overcame so many difficulties. 

To the Staff at the Oak Bay Marina we owe much more than 
wharfage. Their help and encouragement has, many times, enabled us 
to continue to operate when the weather, and other factors, made the 
outlook seem very bleak indeed. 


BRITTEN — The most experienced and successful skipper in the School. He 

has had a tendency to heel his boat too drastically when close-hauled with a 

resultant loss of counterboard leverage and considerable slippage. 
DENNIS — He has at times sailed excellently, but a tendency to overheel and 

to push his boat too hard has frequently lost him distance over the ground in 

gaining speed through the water. 
COPELAND — ^ The best close-hauled sailor in the School, he has overcome his 

lack of confidence in a heavy wind and is rapidly challenging Britten and 

Dennis as the most consistently-successful sailor. 
RAINSFORD — Somewhat clumsy to start with, he has improved considerably. 

He has yet to grasp the intricacies of making a buoy when close-hauled. 


HEFFERNAN — At times clumsy, but always willing. 

VENABLES — Keen, active and obedient. 

POWELL — Skilful and intelligent. Better as a crew than as a skipper. 

SINGLETON — Improving with every race. He became a surprisingly good 

inter-House skipper. 

The "B" Sailing Eight consisted of MILLER II, GIROUARD, HERR- 




The year in Track and Field has proved to be a mixed one. Whilst 
the senior group has had some good performers, there has been no real 
strength in depth, and consequently we finished fourth in the Indepen- 
dent Schools Championships, held at Shawnigan Lake School on May 
31st. Max Smith gained first place in the Triple and Broad Jumps, 
whilst McDonald gained a first in the 200 Metres. Lokken and Logan 
came second and third in the Senior Two Miles, whilst young Freistadt 
maintained his good form throughout the season to finish second in the 
Junior Mile. 

The Junior Track Group have had a meet per week throughout the 
term and have proved that there are capable performers coming up 
the school. Wood, Cameron, Blackwood, Freistadt, Fuqua, Lauder and 
Bigliardi formed the nucleus of the juniors, and they turned in some 
good performances. 

Perhaps the highlight of the term was the very excellent time of 
44.9s. for the 4 X 100 Metres Relay, which broke the University of 
Victoria Track Record at the Esquimalt Relays. This was achieved by 
the school Senior Relay Team of Singleton, McDonald, Reeves and 

As in most sports, competition is essential to maintain interest in a 
boy. It was a pity that more Senior Meets could not be arranged. It 
should be possible for our schools to compete in the Vancouver Island 
Championships and B.C. Championships. I hope so for the future. 

Lastly, my thanks to Reeves as Captain of Track. All the best to him 
next year.

Athletics, internally, are being based on the metric system, this year, 
and it is unlikely, therefore, that any of the old records will be eclipsed. 
However, we have made two or three amendments, and we still invite 
readers who can discover discrepancies further to shout their protests.

It has been a good year for the School in Cross Country, and compe- 
tition has been ver)' keen. The Juniors, particularly, excelled themselves 
by winning the Independent Schools' Run, held at the School in 
March. They were led by twelve-year-old Freistadt, \\ho won in 26m. 
40s. The School took six out of the first ten places — a \eiT fine 
achievement. The Seniors were second, with Smith coming in third. 

In the Central Saanich Relay Match Freistadt came a very creditable 
fifth in his age group, and, by finishing second in the Senior Inter- 
House Event, showed that he has courage and determination and much 
potential for the future. 

Cross Country running demands a self-discipline that is rarely found 
in other sports. I hope that the rest of the School can follo\v the 
example of the Juniors next year. 

Results : 

SENIOR — 1. Logan (BA) ; 2. Freistadt (BO) ; 3. Firth (BO). 
1. Bolton; 2. Baniacle; 3. W^inslow. 

JUNIOR— 1. Freistadt (26m. 30s.) (BO) ; 2. ^Vilev (BO) ; 
3. Bowers (BO). 
1. Bolton; 2. Barnacle; 3. Winslow.

The ever-popular sport of Shooting was again in progress this year, 
under the supervision of Mr. Kayal. 

Unfortunately there was no Team, this year, owing to a shortage of 

Next year Shooting will no doubt attract many more boys. With this 
increase it is hoped new and improxed equipment will be supplied. 
This should raise our standards to new and promising heights.

Owing to delay in the formation of a Cadet Corps this year, the 
Band was not able properly to develop its activities until the end of 

However, the enthusiasm shown by the younger members of the 
School for participating was most encouraging, and has definitely 
shown a great deal of promise for the future. Nevertheless, we feel that 
we must single out two members for special recognition. The first is 
Hemphill, whom we would like to congratulate on his rapid change- 
over to the Dioim, and the second Charles Rainsford, without whose 
help we would have had great difficulty. 

Rodney B. Miller, Drum Major. 



Drama this year resumed its role as a major activity in the School. 
Activities in the Christmas Term were limited as no one had had 
dramatics training previously. The time was devoted primarily to 
learning basic acting skills, movement and speech. A play was not 
selected until the end of the term and no rehearsals began until 

The play selected was an adaptation of a recent translation of the 
play 'A Man full of Nothing', written originally in German by the 
nineteenth century Austrian, Johann Nestroy. It proved to be a most 
appropriate choice. As a comedy, it provided scope for the actors and 
delightful entertainment for the audiences. 

Rehearsals were intensive throughout the Easter term until the 
performance for the School on March 11. 

Originally it had been assumed that the play would be performed in 
the Assembly Hall. However, Mr. Wood and Mr. Brookman decided 
that the old library building could be converted into a theatre and art 
complex. Through their efforts and the assistance of many boys the 
Theatre was completed in time for the opening of the play. 

It was a spectacular occasion in many respects. The University of 
Victoria Theatre Department loaned us lighting equipment and stage 
furniture. The most frequent comment was on the professionalism of 
the production and the superb Theatre in which it was staged. 

Aiuch of the success of the venture was a result of the enthusiastic 
efforts of Miss Christine Chester, a graduate student in Theatre at the 
University of Victoria. She was indeed a "guiding light," providing 
her creative flair in directing and design. 

The ovenvhelming success of what began as a tentative attempt to 
re-establish theatre in the School ensures that drama will always be an 
important part of School life.

"ART '70" 

The projects for the Art Students this year have been numerous. To 
mark the beginning of a new decade, we undertook to re-design an old 
building on the school grounds and convert it into a Theatre-combina- 
tion-Art-Workshop. Most Students at one time or another contributed 
to this during the day. The final outcome is a complete success, and we 
now look forward to many events in this area. 

Our Annual Art Show will be held in this complex, and it will con- 
sist of a newer approach this year. Several Students have attempted a 
higher standard in Art by exploring some of the current outlooks. 

The complete year has been successful and rewarding. 

Life is short — Art is long is a statement that bears some thought, 
and our Students can verify this by the amount of effort required to 
attain some measure of success in this field. 



The choice of films made available to our schools has always ap- 
peared to be limited to the silent films of 1903 or the budget movies of 
1963. This year, however, the selection of films appealed more to the 
modern ideas of today's cultured youth. The films were at times poor, 
which was due to the fact that the wrong films were sent to us; but 
generally they were a step up from previous years ! 

The projector (which was new last year) presented only a few prob- 
lems, such as burned bulbs and sound lights (and forgetfulness to plug 
itself in — after all, it is automatic ! ) , and has therefore been a pleasure 
to work with. 

As is customary, I would like to thank the Projectionists, D. Corn- 
wall, C. Dykes, W. Gosentino (who for some peculiar reason knew 
more about the Machine than the President of the Club, and was 
therefore invaluable in between real repairs), M. MacEwing, B. Val- 
lance and A. Souza. Of course, the whole Club is deeply indebted to 
Mr. J. L. Hinton, who, for yet another year, has given his time and 
knowledge in attempts to further our cause, be it what it may. 

Finally, to quote the 1968 Edition of the 'Black and Red', "Good 
lurk to our next President"' (he may need it) . 

James M. Tunnicliffe, President. 



A light-heartedness pervaded the Debates held this year, the writer 
being certain that the Debaters would rather argue about suitable mar- 
riage partners for Pierre Elliott Trudeau than discuss the pros and 
cons of the Mediation Commission Act (Bill 33) . 

Our thanks go to the girls of Norfolk House and St. Anne's, who took 
part in several Debates, and to the audiences who were forced to listen. 

Those concerned were : Dade, MacEwing, Considine, Leeming, 
Reeves, the Chapmans, Swofford, Scrimes II, Britten, Herniiann, Hef- 
fernan, Travers, Morgan and McPhee. 



The Chess Club has enjoyed continued popularity this year. Al- 
though no formal meetings were organized, Chess was played in the 
Library after lunch, and after games in the evening. The Club was 
supported mainly by the Juniors, who showed a great deal of promise. 

It is hoped that next year a few Chess Tournaments can be arranged, 
presided over by Cabanas (?), who, with a twinkle in his eye, will be 
announcing "Checkmate" to his astonished opponents. 

Christopher M. Considine, Captain. 


The Library holdings were expanded further this year with the 
acquisition of research materials primarily in English and History. It 
was decided that the paperback format would be the most reasonable 
and this permitted the purchase of more titles than could otherwise 
have been obtained. 

Cataloguing proceeded at a cautious pace as the new books were 
assigned Dewey numbers and catalogued for author, title and subject. 

To facilitate more convenient use of the Libraiy a new system was 
devised whereby students are able to check out books unassisted. It was 
found that this eased the work load of the student librarians and that 
the circulation of books increased. 

Several magazine subscriptions were added, including a subscription 
to 'Saturday Review.' 

The Library has begun to take its place as the focal point of the 




The proclamation \vent out from St. Anne's that a dance would 
take place, and the invitation \vas accepted. If one had to find a word 
to describe the function, "unusual'' would eventually leap into the 
mind. Who had ever thought that bo)s would be taken to a dance in a 
bus (apologies to American students), that the apparel would be 
school uniform (how extraordinary that so many of the boys had parts 
of their unifomis at the Cleaners! i . that when at the dance the guests 
would be expected to remain with their hosts (does it still take two to 
tango?) and that the dancing would end at midnight (a la Cinder- 
ella) ? Rules are only made to be broken and this maxim was upheld. 

The best feature of the \enue was not to be found in the facilities 
provided by St. Anne's, though the spacious moon-lit gardens of the 
x^cademy did ensure that the many who found the closeness of the 
dance floor too oppressing were able to free themselves from the dan- 
gers ensuing from claustrophobia, \vhile many found it advantageous 
to be locked in silent meditation (is this not the age of mass communi- 
cation?) . 

The spirit of the evening ^vas of such a bubbly exuberance that it 
was not long before the Empress Hotel and environs became engulfed 
by the young swingers. But, as in life, often the fizz and bubble are 
soon gone, and the dregs are left behind — such was the case. 

The dance had many overtones to the tale of Cinderella, as at one 
stage it was rumoured that the ugly Godmother (the Chaperon in 
drag?) had waved the magic ^vand. as half the boys had mysteriously 
\anished. but as the magic hour approached the guests returned. 

Like Life itself the Dance has to end. and as the moon reached its 
zenith and the stars twinkled in the firmament the last reveller was 
heard to whisper, "What a night! I wonder when the next one will 
take place?" As we go to press the question is still unanswered. 

They shoot Teachers \vho chaperon Dances, don't thev? 



We are happy, once again, to have found space for at least a few of 
the original contributions to Taviv, a Publication run entirely by the 
Students concerned. 

The Editorial StafT this year has been: J. ^L TunnicliflFe (Editor- 
in-Chief). R. \L Leeming. J. A. Meeker, D. D. Cornwall, R. G. Mor- 
gan, ^L J. McLennan. R. J. Dade and ^L R. Reeves. 

A paragraph from the Editorial may be of interest: 

"The articles are good but what is perhaps more important is the 
fact that they do not come from a small group of people. They come 
from the whole school. In previous years only the graduating class had 
consistentlv contributed to the paper, and even then it was only a 


small group. This year, 1 am happy to say, marks a change in this in- 
famous tradition. For this issue I have received good material from 
almost every grade in the school. Therefore the \vhole school can ap- 
preciate and understand the Taviv.'" 

I Am A Pair Of Shoes 

Clop, clop, shuffle, shuffle, scuf, scuf. All day long I move. Over hill, 
over dale is my perpetual existence. Like the eternal footman, no 
element can stop me, whether rain or snow, sun or wind. I live, some- 
times even at night, around an inanimate object of hotly perspiring 
flesh, stifled. All expressions of life are known to me. The slow drunken 
steps are full of misery, while the fast light steps seem joyous. Many 
soles have asked whether life can be seen through the shoes of man. 
Life, as we have decided in many of our meetings, must be continuous. 
In order to ha\e this continuous existence we must be looked after, 
polished every da\'. W^e li\e when we are wrapped around that elon- 
gated, fetid foot. That muscle repels me and my associates. And yet 
without it \ve die. Life for us must consist of tolerance of these annoy- 

Squelch, squelch, the rain is pouring, fast and heavy. The water 
parts before me and splashes to the side. The mud looks up and begins 
to sink beneath my measured step, singing in joy that it li\'es again. Ah, 
here is the doorstep leading to the nice warm abode. Brush, brush, 
goes the doormat as I enter the house. The carpet welcomes me with 
open pile as I wade through it. The floor wanns at my approach and 
tells me how it missed my walk. Resting on the footstool is Hea\'en. 
The stool bears my mass with grinning pleasure. Crack, crack, crackle, 
snap, snap, fills the room as the fire rejuvenates itself. The walls echo 
the noise filling the room with peace. The clock joins in, pong, ping, 
pong, ping to measure our progress. The room has shrunk to enclose 
all. This is Life?

The Drop 

When the red light blinked on and the men 
Started jumping out into the sky 
His 'chute didn't open. 

He shot past those w ho had leapt out before him 
and sunk like a rock through the deafening roar 

And he thought : 

Out of all the thousands who jump tonight 

Who jump to their glorious deaths 

Fighting for homelands, democracy, freedom, 

Who die with the enemy's bullets inside them 

Out of all these 


\\ ho decided to leave me out? 
To have me die a shameful death 
without a shot for the cause? 

And when he rifled on down from the clouds 

And his eyes went dark. 

To the grinding noise of splintering bones 

He thought once more

Happily Ever After ( Epilogue to "Cinderella" ) 

The King was racing 

chasing the maid 

Paid to hang out the clothes. 

The Queen was sitting 

knitting a sliirt 

Hurt and angered she was. 

The Prince was dancing 
prancing with the beauty 
whose duty 
it was to hang out the clothes. 

The Princess was praying 

saying she hated 

those who sated 

their pleasures around her. 

The people were dying 

trying to make 

them wake 

from the sleep of wealth. 

They all lived happily ever after?

The new bus — an anonymous gift 



This year Barnacle has been lacking in numbers, particularly where 
the graduating class has been concerned. This, to some extent, has 
hindered House Spirit. This Spirit must be initiated by the Seniors and 
carried down to the lower grades, and it seems that it is here that we 
have been handicapped. 

Athletically we have done as well as could be expected. Under C. 
Dykes we have won the Basketball (beating Bolton in the process) , and 
in Cross Country, though we had the Winner, Bill Logan, and in 
Cricket we have fielded second-best teams. Nevertheless, next year's 
sports look promising for the House, and we may look forward to 
coming out on top. 

Much thanks must go to Mr. Hartley and Mr. Walsh for their con- 
cern in house affairs; also to the Nurse and the Matrons, who have 
helped so much in house functions. 

On behalf of the House I would like to thank Mr. Timmis for his 
twenty-two years of sei^vice, and to \vish him the best of fortune in the 
coming years. 

To Mr. Gordon, the new Headmaster, and to those returning I wish 
the best of luck, and I hope that the School and Barnacle House will 
uphold the proud traditions of the past. 

Richard G. Morgan, Captain of House. 


In September it was not difficult to look ahead with a certain 
amount of optimism concerning the success of Bolton House, as a lai'ge 
percentage of boys had one or more years of boarder life behind them. 
It is experience that makes a successful House, and this year Bolton 
House was fortunate enough to have it. 

In all phases of school life the members of the House, both junior 
and senior, have been a credit to the School, shining particularly in 
Rugby and Track. 

We may say that the House generally had a very successful year. 
Spirit and enthusiasm were constant throughout the rugby season, and 
came in waves during the last term, but carried us through to the end. 

A great deal of our success has been due to the influence of Mr. 
Walsh, who. both in the House and in the field, has encouraged us to 
maintain exceptionally high standards. We all owe him much thanks. 

Finally, on behalf of the Graduating Class, may I wish Good Luck 
to those returning, in the hope that they will carry on the traditions 
both of the House and of the School as a whole. 

Justin A. Meeker. Captain of House. 


This year has been a most successful one for the Day Boys in all 
aspects of house activity. For the first time the House has been divided 
into two sections, the Senior House, under the direction of Mr. Wen- 
man, and the Junior House, under the direction of Mr. Wood. House 
spirit has been, in my opinion, at its highest for a good many years. At 
no time have members failed to "get stuck in." 

Once again we have provided honest participation in the School's 
activities. We have won Inter-House Cricket, Sailing, Swimming and 
Junior Cross Country, and have made an excellent showing in Inter- 
House Rugby. 

On behalf of those graduating from Winslow, I would like to wish 
all success to those returning, and to the new arrivals. We hope that 
they will be able to maintain the high standards set this year and to 
keep up the good work. They should remember that it is not whether 
they come first but how hard they tiy. 

This year ("comme d'habitude") we have also dominated the aca- 
demic awards on Speech day, and we hope that when the Matriculation 
Results come out we will once again emerge on top. 

Melvin Reeves, Captain of House. 


This year, for the first time, Winslow House Juniors have been 
treated as a separate House from the Winslow Seniors. They have had 
their own Housemaster, Mr. Wood, and two House Prefects, Leeming 
and Spicer. This arrangement has been extremely satisfactory to all 
concerned, and has facilitated the development of true House Spirit — ■ 
arising where it should, among the younger boys. It is their enthusiasm 
and vitality which have carried the House through the year. Their own 
Housemaster and Prefects (together with weekly meetings) have 
helped to knit them together as a functioning body, and little discip- 
linary action has been necessary. 

We believe that this House Spirit has been carried forward into 
academic and sporting activities. The results from both were excellent. 
Four out of every six of the academic prizes were won by Winslow 
House. In sports the vigour and endurance shown by the younger boys, 
particularly in the longer races, were a credit both to them and to the 
School. The points they gained contributed a major part to the points 
gained by the House as a whole. 

Junior School should be the strong foundation of the p\ramid of 
students. We believe that, owing to the efforts of all concerned, the 
School has a strong foundation in our House. 

Roger M. Leeming, House Prefect. 


The customary "circumstances beyond our control (including the 
annual rush to Press)" have prevented us from providing detailed re- 
ports on some Institutions and Activities. 

HOUSE. These have flourished, but have preferred to preserve a 
modest silence.

"Many Happy Returns of the Century ..." (?) 

Reader (Dear) , if you're on your toes 

( And he that runs may read ) , 
You'll have found that at last (for Time it goes, 
And the Water beneath the Bridge it flows) 
It's the 100;:h. turn, as the first page shows, 

For the 'Black & Red' indeed. 

Yes, 100 times has the Editor 

— The bad, the indifTerent, the good — 
Battered his brains, and toiled the more, 
And called the business a "frightful bore," 
And knocked at the patient Printers' door 

Far later than he should. 

And we might have blazoned it (trumpet- wise) 

In Black, and in Red (and in Gold) , 
And paraded it frontally, strumpet-wise, 
And buttered it up, all crumpet-wise. 
But we rather preferred to lump it, wise 

To the fact we were growing old. 

So here, at the back, in frolicsome vein 

(Senility, eh? — or worse?) , 
We have dropped a ridiculous daisy-chain 
Of rhymes that fall like the Summer rain 
(And we've made a fool of ourselves again?) , 

And we've skipped like the lamb, in verse. 

And — who knows? — for Time moves steadily on — 

(If he that can read may run) 
When another long twelve-months has gone, 
And another Summer's suns have shone, 
With 100 Editions to stand upon 

We'll make it 101.
