The  philosopher  tells  us  "a  great  deal  of  pleasure 
in  life  lies  in  bringing  together  things  which  have 
no  connection.     That  is  the  secret  of  humour." 

But  that  is  just  one  kind  of  pleasure. 

Now  for  instance,  Rings  and  Fingers  were  made 
for  each  other  and  if  you  would  see  how  really 
delightful  the  connection  is  just  put  on  one  of  our 
hand-pierced  platinum  rings  or  one  with  the 
delicate  invisible  crown. 

The  happiness  lasts  as  long  as  the  pure,  spark- 
ling diamonds^for  ever.

St.  Andrew's  College  Review 

Caster,  1917 

IN  presenting  the  Easter  number  of  the  Review,  the  editors  are 
somewhat  painfully  conscious  of  the  enlarged  circle  of  readers 
who  in  these  "spacious  times"  will  scan  its  modest  pages.  Into 
what  strange  and  unfamiliar  surroundings  will  the  Crimson  and 
White  of  our  wrapper  bring  memories  and  tidings  of  the  old 
School  !  How  will  the  chronicle  of  our  humdrum  doings  appeal 
to  the  "glorious  company"  of  our  Old  Boys  who — in  the  trenches, 
in  the  air  and  on  the  sea — are  busily  engaged  in  making  history  ? 
Judging  from  the  immense  number  of  appreciative  letters  re- 
ceived, we  are  hopeful,  however,  that  the  funds  which  have  been 
raised  to  send  the  School  magazine  to  our  Andreians  overseas  will 
not  be  spent  in  vain,  and  that  although  we  have  this  time  no 
remarkable  tale  to  record  of  victories  on  the  ice,  or  indeed  of  note- 
worthy happenings  of  any  kind,  they  will  judge  us  kindly  and 
hear  with  pleasure  the  assurance  that  "al,rs  well"  with  the  School, 
and  that  we  are  at  least  proud  of  them  and  of  the  great  traditipn 
thev  are  making  for  us. 

WE  are  very  glad  to  publish  the  article  contributed  b}^  Dr. 
Dickson,  President  of  the  National  Library  for  the  Blind- 
A  better  provision  for  the  necessities  and  for  the  training  of  the 
blind  promises,  in  this  country,  to  be  one  of  the  good  results 
brought  about  by  the  war.  As  our  present  boys  know,  this  is  a 
work  in  which  Mrs.  Macdonald  has  been  taking  a  very  active 
interest,  and  two  or  three  of  our  number  are  devoting  part  of  their 
spare  time  to  the  study  of  Braille  writing.  We  hope  that  Dr. 
Dickson's  article  will  have  the  effect  of  inducing  others  to  help  also. 

THANKS  to  the  inspiration  of  Lieut.  Rutter's  sketches  in  our 
Christmas  number,  we  have  verified  the  existence  in  the 
School  of  a  certain  amount  of  artistic  talent,  distinctly  worthy  of 
encouragement,  and  this  we  hope  will  be  more  in  evidence  in 
future  issues.  Contributors  to  this  department  should  remember 
that  drawings  should  be  done  in  India  ink  or  "china"  pencil  on 
white  paper  or  cardboard.

St.  Andrew's  College, 
Easter,  1917. 
To  the  Old  Boys  Serving  : 

My  dear  Boys, — Once  again  I  take  pen  in  hand  to  write  you 
an  open  letter.  I  am  more  directly  prompted  to  do  so  because 
of  the  very  large  number  of  letters  which  it  has  been  my  privilege 
to  receive  from  Old  Boys  since  the  publication  of  the  Christmas 
Review.  More  than  one  hundred  and  fifty  of  you  have  favoured 
me  with  communications  during  the  last  three  months*.  It  be- 
comes necessary  to  avail  myself  of  the  opportunity  presented  by 
the  publication  of  the  Easter  number  of  the  Review,  if  I  am  to 
acknowledge  receipt  of  these  most  welcome  evidences  of  your 
faith  in  our  continued  interest  in  you.  To  you  who  have  written, 
therefore,  I  would  first  make  my  acknowledgments.  To  have 
heard  directly  from  so  many  of  the  brave  lads  who  are  fighting 
our  battles,  is  a  rare  and  highly  valued  privilege.  I  need  hardly 
assure  you  that  these  evidences  of  your  affection  for  and  interest 
in  the  old  school,  and  in  those  of  us  whose  duty  and  privilege  it  is 
to  maintain  her  prestige,  are  in  themselves  a  magnificent  reward 
for  anything  that  has  been  accomplished.  From  the  bottom  of 
my  heart  I  thank  you. 

And  yet,  as  I  write,  it  is  but  natural  that  there  should  be  in 
my  mind  all  the  Old  Boys  who  this  day  are  in  khaki.  The  full 
list,  so  far  as  we  can  complete  it,  is  daily  before  my  notice,  and  I 
am  glad  to  say  that  as  I  frequently  read  your  names,  the  memory 
of  the  school  days  of  each  is  fresh  in  my  mind.  Some  of  you  it  has 
been  my  good  fortune  to  know  more  or  less  intimately  since  the 
old  relationship  of  boy  and  Headmaster  ran  its  alloted  course. 
What  many  of  you  gave  up  in  order  to  serve  I  know.  Inasmuch,, 
however,  as  you  serve,  you  have  taken  up  the  better  thing. 

I  wish  I  could  make  you  understand  how  vital  is  the  real 
interest  taken  in  each  one  of  you,  by  all  of  us  at  the  school.  Even 
in  the  new  boys,  who  but  know  your  names,  there  is  a  most  com- 
mendable feeling  of  possession — you  are  ours.  For  at  St.  Andrew's 
you,  too,  have  worked  and  played,  you,  too,  have  experienced 
boyish  disappointments  and  joys.  The  struggles  on  the  field, 
the  contests  in  the  gymnasium,  the  efforts  of  the  Cadet  Corps, 
the  work  in  class,  the  very  noise  on  the  flats, — all  are  full  of  the 

*For  detailed  acknowledgments  see  page  82. 


traditions  to  which  you  contributed  in  the  days  that  have  gone 
before.  There  will  always  be  something  of  your  spirit  in  the 
school,  and  we  are  glad  to  have  it  so.  With  pride  we  read  of  the 
honours  which  have  come  to  so  many  of  you.  With  very  real 
concern  and  anxiety  we  learn  of  the  wounded  and  sick.  With 
deep  sorrow  we  fly  the  flag  at  half-mast  for  the  fallen.  Whatever 
may  be  your  experiences  and  rewards,  of  this  one  thing  we  are 
confident — you  will  not  be  found  wanting.  In  the  casualty  list 
j)uh)lished  on  another  page  of  this  number,  you  will  find  the  names 
of  old  school  companions.  We  do  well,  as  we  read  such  lists,  to 
remind  ourselves,  that  a  life  is  not  short  if  it  be  well  lived.  Faith 
in  our  God  and  our  own  instincts  of  true  manhood  lead  us  to  ask 
"who  would  exchange  the  short  life  nobly  lived  at  the  post  of  duty, 
for  the  longer  one  of  ease  and  selfishness  ?"  And  yet  we  sorrow, 
and  wish  the  sacrifice  had  not  been  necessary. 

You  will  be  glad  to  know  that  the  school  continues  to  strive, 
with  some  measure  of  success,  to  be  worth}-  of  you.  Her  spirit 
continues  to  be  excellent.  The  staff  maintains  its  high  standing 
and  the  Forms  are  working  consistently.  The  hockey  season  was 
quite  successful,  in  view  of  the  lightness  of  the  team.  The  Cadet 
Corps  is  larger  than  ever,  and  we  look  forward  to  a  good  cricket 
season.  Everybody  is  endeavouring  to  maintain  a  standard  worthy 
of  the  Old  Boys. 

Your  names  are  often  on  our  lips  and  the  memory  of  you  in 
our  hearts.  St.  Andrew's  of  to-day  has  very  real  afifection  for  her 
fighting  Old  Boys  and  very  deep  interest  in  all  their  doings.  Her 
blood  is  in  their  veins,  and  as  they  fight  and  sufiEer,  even  so  is  she 
conscious  of  the  strife  and  burden.  May  these  words  come  to 
you  with  no  uncertain  sound,  for  they  verily  voice  the  feelings  of 
all  of  us  in  your  old  school.  In  the  flesh  we  must  remain  at  our 
post  of  duty.  In  the  spirit  we  have  gone  out  with  you.  Again 
it  is  the  earnest  prayer  of  your  old  Headmaster  that  the  God  of 
your  fathers  will  spread  His  hand  upon  you  for  a  covering. 

Yours  faithfully, 

D.  Bruce  Macdonald. 



By  Charles  R.   Dickson,   M.D.,   Hon.   President,  Canadian 
Free  Library  for  the  Blind. 

I  HE  grim,  relentless  schoolmaster,  War,  is  teaching  us  many 
^  a  stern  lesson  to-day,  and  if  we  are  apt  pupils  the  sad  toll 
of  lives,  maimed  limbs,  sightless  eyes  and  other  impaired  faculties 
will  not  have  been  paid  in  vain.  For  War  is  teaching  in  no  mis- 
taken terms  how  truly  great  are  Selflessness,  Service  and  Sacrifice 
in  building  a  national  character  and  moulding  national  opinion. 
Nothing  truly  great  has  ever  been  achieved  without  sacrifice,  or 
ever  will  be. 

And  so  to  those  who  have  so  freely  and  willingly  sacrificed 
their  lives  that  we  at  home  may  be  free  and  live  in  comfort,  let  us 
raise  monuments  and  memorials,  lest  we  forget  the  lesson.  Next 
to  life  itself,  perhaps  the  most  priceless  gift  our  soldiers  have 
yielded  up  freely  and  willingly,  is  that  of  sight.  How  may  we 
most  fittingly  commemorate  this  great  sacrifice  ?  Most  for- 
tunately for  Canada  only  37  Canadian  soldiers  have  been  totally 
blinded  in  this  war,  but  the  end  is  not  yet,  and  we  can  hardly 
expect  to  escape  so  lightly  in  view  of  what  the  other  countries  have 
suffered  in  this  respect.  But  even  this  comparatively  low  figure 
has  awakened  us  to  the  fact  that  Canada  has  no  institution 
capable  of  training  37  persons  who  have  become  blinded  in  adult 
life,  and  fitting  them  to  take  their  places  once  more  as  useful 
citizens,  and  that  it  is  behind  every  other  portion  of  the  British 
Empire  in  the  care  of  the  blind  in  general,  and  a  knowledge  of 
their  needs. 

We  all  feel  that  we  would  like  to  do  something  for  these  blind 
heroes  who  are  being  so  splendidly  trained  in  the  Motherland, 
and  who  are  returning  to  us  so  bright  and  cheerful  and  so  full  of 
courage  and  hope  for  the  future,  but  our  Government,  which  is 
so  wisely  having  them  trained  abroad  instead  of  bringing  them 
home  untrained,  is  earnestly  planning  for  their  future  welfare  in 
addition  to  what  it  is  already  doing  for  their  comfort,  so  that  we 
cannot  do  much  for  our  blinded  soldiers  save  in  the  way  of  pro- 
viding for  their  entertainment  in  various  ways.  Again,  in  an 
address  before  -the  Royal  Canadian  Institute,  one  of  our  returned 
blinded  soldiers,  Mr.  Edwin  A.  Baker,  formerly  a  lieutenant  in 
the  Engineers,  and  who  lost  his  sight  through  a  sniper's  bullet 


the  day  after  he  had  been  awarded  the  Croix  de  Guerre  of  France 
and  the  British  Military  Cross — Mr.  Baker,  at  the  close  of  his 
address  said  that  the  public  must  remember  that  our  soldiers  re- 
turned as  civilians,  and  that  whatever  was  done  for  them  must 
also  be  done  for  the  whole  civilian  blind  of  Canada,  and  that  they 
asked  for  no  special  treatment  simply  because  they  had  done  their 

Let  us  ponder  well  this  manly  patriotic  speech.  Mr.  Baker 
has  been  looking  into  the  matter  of  the  welfare  of  the  blind  of 
Canada,  and  is  rather  surprised  at  what  he  has  already  found  out. 
He  is  now  a  member  of  the  Board  of  Management  of  our  Library 
for  the  Blind,  and  another  member  is  Mr.  Alexander  G.  Viets, 
formerly  a  lance-corporal  in  the  famous  P.P.C.L.L,  who  was  the 
first  blinded  Canadian  soldier  to  pass  through  St.  Dunstan's 
Hostel  in  London,  England,  where  the  blinded  soldiers  and  sailors 
of  the  Empire  are  being  so  admirably  trained. 

What  more  fitting  memorial  of  this  sacrifice  of  sight  in  de- 
fence of  the  Empire  can  we  accord  than  the  betterment  of  the 
conditions  of  the  civilian  blind  of  Canada,  and  what  monument 
could  be  more  beneficent  and  more  enduring  r 

The  Canadian  Free  Library  for  the  Blind  has  been  in  existence 
for  about  ten  years  ;  yet  so  quietly  has  it  been  carrying  on  its 
truly  magnificent  work  among  the  blind  in  every  Province  of  the 
Dominion  that  very  few,  save  the  blind  themselves,  have  ever 
heard  of  it.  It  is  national  in  its  scope,  and  there  can  be  no  ques- 
tion as  to  what  it  has  done  for  our  blind  in  the  past.  It  has  just 
moved  into  new  quarters  of  its  own  in  Queen's  Park,  having  out- 
grown its  former  housing  in  a  branch  of  the  Public  Library  at 
West  Toronto.  This  move  will  necessitate  a  very  greatly  in- 
creased expenditure  of  its  meagre  funds,  and  it  must  have  amole 
support  if  it  is  to  maintain  and  extend  its  activity.  In  what 
better  manner  can  you  help  the  blind  of  our  Dominion  than  by 
helping  this  Library  to  minister  to  their  needs  ?  You  can  pur- 
suade  your  friends  to  contribute  liberally  to  its  support  ;  you  can 
organize  little  entertainments  on  its  behalf  during  your  vacation, 
and  you  can  interest  all  you  meet  in  its  wants.  Books  are  a  great 
boon  to  the  blind,  who  are  so  much  shut  in  and  deprived  of  so 
many  sources  of  information,  relaxation  and  entertainment,  avail- 
able to  their  sighted  friends,  and  the  Library  supplies  the  blind 
with  reading  matter  of  every 'variety,  including  text  books  in  em- 
bossed or  raised  type,  which  the  blind  read  by  touch,  the  blind 


boy's  eye  being  his  finger.  There  is  no  charge  made  for  the  loan 
of  these  books  and  the  Dominion  Government  carries  them  by 
parcel  post  free  from  the  Library  to  the  reader  and  back,  or  even 
from  reader  to  reader  ;  in  which  respect  Canada  is  in  advance  of 
the  rest  of  the  Empire,  where  there  is  usually  a  charge  for  mem- 
bership in  the  Libraries  for  the  Blind,  and  a  reduced  postal  charge 
for  carriage.  So,  in  one  respect  at  least,  Canada  leads  the  Empire. 
You  can  help  it  to  lead  in  many  another — will  you  ? 

But  the  Library  does  not  content  itself  with  furnishing  the 
blind  with  reading  matter,  important  as  this  function  is.  It  also 
supplies  the  blind  with  the  special  writing  paper  and  writing 
apparatus  of  various  types,  and  at  figures  which  permit  it  no  profit 
on  the  sale,  as  the  blind  as  a  rule  are  unable  to  earn  the  wages  of 
their  more  favoured  brothers  and  sisters  who  possess  full  sight. 
The  writing  is  done  not  by  a  pen  or  pencil,  but  by  means  of  a 
stylus,  which  looks  very  much  like  a  bradawl,  with  which  they 
raise  the  paper  in  small  dots  to  form  the  various  characters  of  the 
alphabet.  The  paper  is  held  in  a  metal  frame  with  rows  of  narrow 
slots  cut  out  and  with  little  notches  in  the  edges  of  each  slot. 
These  notches  are  the  guides  in  which  the  stylus  rests  wliile  it 
presses  up  the  useful  dot,  and  there  are  little  hollows  on  the  oppo- 
site side  of  the  frame  corresponding  with  these  notches  into  which 
hollows  the  paper  is  pressed.  These  also  prevent  the  stylus  from 
puncturing  the  paper.  These  frames  are  called  slates  ;  there  are 
small  sizes  for  carrying  in  the  pocket,  and  there  are  larger  ones 
called  desk  slates  to  be  placed  on  an  ordinary  table  when  in  use. 
Then  there  are  other  devices  termed  "writers,"  which  are  oper- 
ated very  much  as  a  typewriter  but  with  only  six  keys  and  a  shift 
key,  for  the  sixty-three  characters  in  the  Braille  alphabet  are 
formed  by  a  combination  of  six  dots  arranged  in  three  rows  of  two 
dots  each.  Each  dot  has  its  own  number,  and  they  are  numbered 
from  the  top,  commencing  at  the  left-hand  dot  in  the  top  row, 
which  is  called  dot  number  i  ;  the  other  dot  on  the  top  row  is  dot 
number  2,  and  so  on.  Thus,  reading  from  top  to  bottom  we  have 
three  dots  placed  one  directly  below  the  other  and  known  as  dots 
number  i,  3  and  5,  and  to  the  right  of  these  are  dots  2,  4  and  6. 
In  using  these  "writers"  we  form  our  words  from  left  to  right, 
but  in  the  slates  we  form  not  only  our  words  but  even  the  char- 
acters which  compose  them  from  right  to  left  as  the  dots  must  be 
pressed  up  one  by  one  from  the  reverse  side  of  the  paper,  and  when 
it  is  turned  over  for  reading  purposes  the  dots  and  words  read 


from  left  to  right.  In  writing,  all  the  dots  forming  a  Braille  char- 
acter are  made  simultaneously.  Both  writers  and  slates  may  be 
used  for  ordinary  Braille  correspondence,  but  in  making  Braille 
books  the  slates  are  preferred,  from  which  it  may  be  inferred  that 
Braille  bookmaking  is  a  slow  and  tedious  process,  yet  in  Great 
Britain  many  ladies  give  their  services  in  transcribing  these  books, 
and  so  very  materially  lessen  the  cost  of  production.  Braille  books 
require  considerably  more  pages  than  ordinary  printing  because 
fewer  words  can  be  placed  upon  a  page  ;  thus,  the  Bible  in  Braille 
takes  37  large  volumes. 

The  Library  also  supplies  games  of  various  kinds  for  the  blind 
such  as  chess,  dominoes,  etc.  It  also  furnishes  ordinary  type- 
writers for  the  blind,  as  the  blind  make  excellent  and  accurate 

The  Library  trains  sighted  persons  to  act  as  home  instructors 
in  reading  and  writing  for  blind  people  who  have  not  already 
learned.  It  also  endeavors  to  obtain  employment  for  the  blind 
and  expects  shortly  to  be  in  a  position  to  teach  the  blind  some 
useful  vocations  such  as  stenography,  typing,  private  switchboard 
operating,  etc.  It  likewise  furnishes  information  and  advice  on 
matters  relative  to  the  welfare  of  the  blind. 

Some  of  the  pupils  of  St.  Andrews's  College,  undeterred  by 
the  difficulties,  or  perhaps  stimulated  by  the  laudable  desire  to 
overcome  them,  have  expressed  a  wish  to  do  transcribing  in  Braille. 
Let  me  give  them  a  suggestion  from  Mr.  Edwin  A.  Baker — let  the 
masters  select  a  number  of  passages  from  writers  of  note  or  from 
celebrated  speeches,  and  let  the  boys  transcribe  these  ;  have  them 
corrected  by  someone  familiar  with  Braille  ;  have  these  quotations 
made  up  in  sheaves  and  sent  to  the  blind.  Send  the  first  crop  to 
Mr.  Baker  at  the  Operating  Department  of  the  Hydro-Electric 
Head  Ofhce  on  University  Avenue.  It  wall  give  him  great  plea- 

Braille  gets  its  old  name  from  Louis  Braille,  a  gifted  French- 
man, as  so  many  of  his  race  are,  he  having  devised  this  best  of 
systems  of  embossed  characters,  which  is  wellnigh. universal  in  its 
employment  by  the  various  nations. 

There  is  another  manner  in  which  boys  may  help  their  blind 
comrades,  and  this  is  by  taking  them  for  w^alks  or  drives  during 
their  vacation.  Blind  boys  enjoy  even  picnics  and  concerts — 
they  are  very  human.  Just  try  the  experiment  and  see  which  is 
most  pleased,  you  or  the  other  boy.     Sometimes  the  blind  like 



to  go  to  church.  Try  taking  one  there  or  to  Sunday  School.  The 
bhnd  love  fresh  air,  sunshine  and  exercise.  Tell  them  all  you  see 
and  notice  how  much  more  observant  it  makes  you.  Let  the 
blind  boy  take  your  arm  when  walking  ;  tell  him  when  you  reach 
a  step  up  or  a  step  down.  In  other  things  treat  him  as  an  ordinary 
everyday  boy  and  go  home  happy  and  glad  that  you  have  sight 
and  power  and  the  will  to  bring  happiness  to  others  less  fortunate. 































"The  Winter  of  Our  Discontent" 



WELL,  DAD,"  said  a  voice,  as  the  door  opened  into  the  den 
of  Donald  Cameron,  an  old  gentleman  of  seventy-eight, 
who  was  sitting  in  his  arm  chair  in  front  of  the  glowing  wood  fire 
which  cast  a  ruddy  hue  over  everything  in  the  room.  "How 
about  that  story  you  promised  us  to-night  ?  Jack  has  been  trying 
to  find  ovit  all  day  why  you  wouldn't  let  him  take  that  gun  in 
your  room  out  to  the  farm  this  morning." 

"All   right.    Bob,"    said    Donald    Cameron.     "Call   Jack    and 
Douglas  and  get  my  pipe  from  the  mantel." 

Soon  all  were  seated  around  the  grate  fire  and  the  old  man 
began  : 

"I  had  been  in  this  country  for  three  years  and  had  built  a 
barn  and  a  house.  I  had  also  cleared  a  space  large  enough  to 
grow  a  fairly  good  crop.  The  log  cabin  took  me  the  longest  to 
build,  as  I  had  to  make  it  comfortable  for  your  mother  who  was 
to  come  out  as  soon  as  I  got  things  straightened  out.  The 
cabin  was  about  thirty-two  feet  long  by  fifteen  wide.  The  logs 
were  notched  at  each  end  and  fitted  together,  then  nailed  with 
wooden  nails..  The  roof  was  also  made  of  logs  with  the  cracks 
in  bet-ween  filled  with  a  mixture  of  moss  and  clay,  then  sod  was 
packed  on  top  of  that,  making  it  proof  against  all  kinds  of  weather. 
The  cracks  in  the  sides  were  filled  with  clay  only.  When  it  dried 
it  was  as  hard  as  brick.  The  inside  was  made  more  homelike  the 
year  before  your  mother  came  out.  I  had  built  three  rooms  in  the 
cabin  and  in  the  main  room  I  had  bviilt  a  large  stone  fireplace. 
The  floor  was  made  of  cedar  logs  covered  over  with  mud  and  clay, 
which  dried  hard,  and  was  then  covered  with  bearskins.  This 
made  it  like  a  Turkish  carpet.  That  fall  your  mother  came  out 
and  had  been  out  in  this  country  a  month  when  the  winter  set  in. 

"It  was  your  mother's  first  winter  in  this  country  and  every- 
thing was  strange  to  her. 

"We  were  sitting  around  the  table  one  night  after  supper 
when  she  said,  '  Donald,  I  heard  a  baby  cry.'  So  we  listened  and 
sure  enough  the  cry  was  repeated.  She  ran  to  the  door  and 
opened  it.  There  she  found  a  small  bundle.  Your  mother  took 
it  in  her  arms  and  carried  it  in.  I  closed  the  door  and  got  some 
warm  blankets.  By  that  time  she  had  unwrapped  the  bundle  and 
found  it  to  be  a  little  Indian  baby  boy.  She  begged  me  to  let  her 
keep  him.  So  I  said  she  could,  until  some  one  came  and  claimed 


"Years  passed  and  the  baby  grew  up  to  be  a  fine  young  lad. 
No  one  came  to  claim  him,  so  we  decided  to  keep  him  with  us. 
Your  mother  called  him  Joe.  She  taught  him  to  read  and  write. 
When  he  was  young  he  heard  me  call  your  mother  Flo,  and  from 
that  time  on  he  called  her  nothing  else,  and  he  called  me  Dad. 

"In  the  summer  time  he  used  to  come  out  into  the  fields  with 
me  and  help  with  whatever  work  he  could  do,  or  sometimes  he 
would  stay  in  the  cabin  and  help  your  mother  with  her  work. 

"When  you  two  were  about  able  to  walk,  Joe  was  a  young 
man  about  nineteen.  That  fall  I  had  sent  him  to  the  fort  for  our 
winter  provisions,  as  I  thought  it  necessary  to  get  them  in  early. 
The  fort  was  a  good  day's  journey  from  the  cabin,  so  we  did  not 
expect  Joe  home  that  night. 

"  During  the  night  a  few  inches  of  snow  had  fallen  and  every- 
thing was  frozen  up.  I  had  gone  to  the  barn  to  do  some  repairing 
to  it  for  the  winter  that  was  to  set  in,  when  I  heard  the  sound  of 
a  horse's  hoofs  on  the  frozen  ground.  I  ran  to  the  door  of  the 
barn  and  saw  Joe  approaching  at  full  gallop.  He  stopped  at  the 
house,  threw  himself  from  his  horse  and  was  about  to  enter,  when 
he  saw  me  standing  in  the  doorway  of  the  barn.  He  came  running 
up  to  me  all  out  of  breath.  '  Dad,'  he  said,  'the  Cree  are  coming 
from  the  south.  Louis  the  halfbreed„  brought  the  news  to  the 
fort  last  night.  Get  the  things  packed  in  the  schooner  while  I 
hitch  the  horse.  You  and  Flo  and  the  babies  take  one  and  I'll 
take  the  other  and  try  and  lead  the  Indians  off  in  the  other  direc- 
tion while  you  make  for  the  fort.' 

"Flo  and  I  packed  all  the  necessary  things  in  the  schooner 
while  Joe  hitched  the  horses.  Then  he  left  us,  but  soon  came 
running  back  to  say  that  the  Indians  were  about  eight  miles  off. 

"'Dad,'  he  said,  'they  want  plunder.  When  they  see  my 
schooner  they'll  make  after  it,  then  you  start  for  the  fort.  I'll 
take  the  roundabout  way.  Goodby,  Dad,'  he  said  as  he  took 
my  hand,  'I'll  meet  you  at  the  fort  to-night.'  He  kissed  your 
mother  and  you  two  and  set  off  in  the  other  schooner. 

"The  Indians  caught  sight  of  him,  and  expecting  to  get 
plunder  from  the  schooner,  started  after  him.  Soon  he  disap- 
peared over  the  hills  with  the  Indians  in  full  pursuit. 

"We  reached  the  fort  that  night  and  found  that  Joe  had  not 
arrived,  so  I  informed  some  of  the  men  what  Joe  had  done,  and  we 
organized  a  search  party.     We  figured  out  just  where  he  ought 


to  be  and  set  out  to  help  him.  We  travelled  all  ni<^ht  by  moon- 
light. One  of  the  men  happened  to  notice  a  red  light  away  oflf  in 
the  distance  so  we  set  off  at  a  gallop  over  the  snow-covered  ground 
in  that  direction.  As  we  drew  near  we  could  make  out  the 
burning  skeleton  of  a  prairie  schooner  and  dark  objects  lying 
close  by.     These  proved  to  be  dead  Indians. 

"There  on  the  ground  in  the  pale  moonlight  lay  the  blood- 
spattered  body  of  Joe,  while  all  around  were  signs  that  told  of  the 
terrible  fight  that  had  taken  place.  I  approached,  and  kneeling 
beside  what  seemed  to  be  the  lifeless  form  of  Joe,  said  in  a  whisper, 
'Joe  !'  He  opened  his  eyes  and  said  in  a  gasping  voice,  'Is  Flo 
safe  ?'     I  said,  'Yes.'     He  closed  his  eyes  and  passed  away. 

"We  carried  him  to  the  fort  and  buried  him  next  day  in  the 
little  graveyard  outside  of  the  fort. 

"The  shock  was  so  much  to  your  mother  that  she  took  sick 
and  in  a  few  weeks  died.  I  sent  you  two  to  your  mother's  sister 
in  England  where  she  looked  after  you  until  you  were  through 
Public  School,  then  I  sent  for  you  to  finish  your  education  in  this 

"That  rifle  in  my  room  belonged  to  Joe." 

As  the  old  man  finished  his  story  the  teafs  rolled  down  his 
cheeks.  They  all  sat  in  silence  looking  into  the  fireplace  at  the 
d^ang  embers  of  the  fire. 

"Well,  boys,"  said  the  old  man  as  he  wiped  the  tears  from  his 
eyes.  "Let's  away  to  bed  as  Jack  and  Douglas  have  to  catch 
the  early  train  to  College  in  the  morning." 

L.  D.  She  WAX  (Form  V.). 



A  MEEK  !  AMACK  ! "  with  several  more  expressions 
equally  meaningless  to  me  at  that  moment,  rang  through 
the  Union  Station,  until  the  name  which  I  had  repeated  so  often 
during  the  recent  weeks,  "Kagawong,  Kagawong,"  reached  my 
ears.  With  wild  enthusiasm  I  joined  in  the  chorus,  "Hurrah  ! 
hurray  !  hurroo  !"  These  were  the  boys  of  Camp  Kagawong, 
and  though  still  unseen  to  me,  from  that  moment  for  which  I  had 
waited  so  long,  I  was  one  of  them. 

Extending  back  from  this  happy  moment  were  many  weeks 
of  vague  dreams  and  endless  preparations.  After  it  was  decided 
I  should  go  to  "Camp,"  mother  had  secured  a  small  brown  booklet 
which  told  of  swimming,  canoeing,  sailing,  archery  and  so  many 
things  that  I  wanted  so  much  to  do.  But  she  seemed  more  con- 
cerned about  a  list  of  articles  on  the  back  page,  which  read  as 
follows  :  2  pairs  of  blankets,  oilskin  coat  and  hat,  2  pairs  of  run- 
ning shoes, — and  dozens  of  other  things  I  would  need.  These 
had  all  been  procured  and  neatly  packed  in  my  trunk.  The  bag- 
gage had  been  collected  on  Monday  afternoon  and  here  I  was  on 
Tuesday  morning,  June  27th,  entering  the  Union  Station  after 
what  seemed  the  slowest  ride  of  my  life  on  a  Toronto  street  car. 
M}''  dream  was  about  to  come  true. 

Walking  was  much  too  slow,  so,  deserting  mother,  I  "doubled" 
down  to  join  the  merry  throng,  whose  yells  I  had  heard  above. 
Here  I  saw  a  car  marked  "  Private,"  with  a  group  of  boys  standing 
on  the  rear  platform,  while  others  ran  joyously  about  shaking 
hands  with  their  pals,  whom  they  had  not  seen  for  man}^  months. 
But  they  were  all  strangers  to  me,  and  for  a  moment  I  felt  alone. 
Presently  mother  came  along  and  pulled  me  over  to  introduce  me 
to  a  large  man  in  a  grey  suit  with  a  big  friendly  smile  beaming  all 
over  his  face.  This  was  Mr.  Chapman.  From  that  moment  I 
was  a  part  of  Camp  Kagawong,  for,  calling  the  boys  around  him, 
in  his  usual  friendly  manner,  he  introduced  me  to  the  "bunch." 

"Toot!  toot!"  and  away  the  train  sped  toward  "camp." 
Having  a  car  to  ourselves,  the  fifty  of  us  became  well  acquainted 
by  the  time  we  had  reached  Lindsay.  Here  we  boarded  "the 
boat,"  the  Wacouta,  with  which  we  became  so  familiar  afterwards. 
Between  baggage  and  boys  she  had  about  the  biggest  cargo  of  her 
history,  which  made  me  rather  timid  at  first,  to  say  the  least. 
Winding  through  what  seemed  to  be  an  extremely  crooked  course, 



we  crossed  Sturgeon  Lake  and  entered  the  locks  at  Fenelon  Falls. 
Of  course  everybody  got  ofif  to  see  this  new  wonder.  Away  across 
Cameron  Lake — then  more  locks  at  Rosedale,  and  out  into  Lake 
Balsam  we  steamed.  Soon  the  "old  boys"  sighted  "camp,"  at 
which  we  landed  in  a  few  minutes.  This  was  to  be  my  abode  for 
the  next  eight  weeks. 

From  the  moment  I  landed  at  "camp,"  I  liked  it.  Facing 
the  dock  was  a  large  bungalow  with  its  delightful  grove  of  cedars 
and  poplars  surrounding  it.  Nestling  close  to  the  trees  on  each 
side  of  the  bungalow  were  the  sleeping  tents,  to  one  of  which  I 
was  assigned  in  the  Intermediate  section.  Opposite  us  were  the 
Seniors,  while  behind  them,  a  little  apart,  resided  the  "Inks." 
"Behind  and  beyond"  lay  the  thick  woods,  the  haunt  of  many  a 
m3'sterious  treasure. 

The  next  day  we  settled  into  the  regular  programme  of 
"camp,"  to  which  1  soon  adjusted  myself.  Of  course  I  could  not 
swim,  and  was  denied  the  privilege  of  canoeing,  until  I  secured 
my  crest.  I  practised  daily  with  water-wings,  splashing,  strug- 
gling, choking,  attempting  to  do  as  I  was  told,  but  I  didn't  seem 
to  possess  an}'  fishlike  qualities.  Soon  others  swam  "up  to  the 
stub  on  the  bank,"  so  not  to  be  outdone,  I  determined  to'  succeed. 
During  the  third  week  I  reached  it,  but  my  stroke  was  anything 
but  graceful.  I  received  the  coveted  crest,  however,  and  from 
that  time  camp  life  became  pleasanter,  as  I  was  ready  to  begin 
canoeing  and  lifesaving.  The  "old  boys"  allowed  me  to  go  out 
sailing  with  them,  while  the  captain  of  the  "Hop"  elevated  me  to 
"chief  bailer."  At  shooting  and  archery  the  targets  seemed  too 
small  for  me  at  first  and  nothing  but  a  splash  in  the  lake  was  my

score.     Whether  by  accident  or  skill,  eventually  I  began  to  find 
the  target  and  now  feel  I  might  make  a  sniper — some  day. 

Off  for  a  Cruise 

Hot  as  the  weather  was  we  were  able  to  pull  off  a  couple  of 
cruises.  Eight  canoes,  bearing  three  fishers  each,  set  out  across 
the  lake,  up  the  river,  across  the  portages,  to  Mountain  Lake, 
where  for  two  days  good  fishing  was  found  with  our  guide,  Mr. 
Menzie.  Most  of  my  big  fish  turned  out  to  be  weeds,  but  a  few 
were  attracted  to  my  spoon, — and  some  I  landed.  If  I  had  another 
chance  I  think  I  know  how  to  land  more  now. 

The  usual  fun  of  camp  came  my  way  :  pillow-fights,  "snipe- 
hunts,"  treasure-hunts,  shows  on  Saturday  night,  camp-fire  songs, 
Tip  the  Bucket,  etc.  Nor  did  I  escape  the  "paddle"  after  lights 
out,  when  I  forgot  the  rule  that  "  a  boy  must  not  be  seen  or  heard" 
after  nine-thirty. 

My  eight  weeks  passed  far  too  quickly  for  me.  I  was  having 
much  too  good  a  time  with  my  new  friends  to  think  of  getting  into 
a  collar  and  good  clothes  to  come  back  to  the  hot  city,  and  worst 
of  all  to  school.  To  make  it  easy,  however,  the  others  came  along 
just  for  company.  We  had  to  part,  of  course,  but  we've  planned 
to  meet  at  Kagawong  in  19 17,  and  you  bet  we  will.  Then  I'll  be 
an  "old  boy,"  and  I'm  going  to  win  some  medals  or  know  the 
reason  why,  and  so  it  will  soon  be  again,  "Kagawong  !  Kagawong! 
Hurrah  !  hurray  !  hurroo  !"

"The  Dollar  Bill  Treasury  of  American  and  English  Verse"  by  Professor 
Schwatzenpiffel,  M.A.,  Ph.D.,  D.  Litt.,  D.C.L.,  L.L.D.,D.D.  New  York:  Dyme 
&  Nicholl.     Price:  With  notes — one  dollar;  without  notes — one  cent. 

"^  I  'RULY  did  the  Preacher  observe  that  "of  making  many  books 
^  there  is  no  end."  This,  however,  has  no  deterring  effect 
whatever  upon  certain  professors,  who,  being  somewhat  short  of 
living  poets,  are  everlastingly  digging  up  dead  ones  in  order  to  re- 
collect, re-edit,  and  re-publish  their  works.  The  latest  instance 
of  this',  vp4nth  I  would  commend  to  the  notice  of  an  indulgent  and 
long-suffering  public,  is  a  compilation  entitled  "The  Dollar  Bill 
Treasury  of  American  and  English  Verse."  It  is  an  anthology 
of  classical  verse  intended  for  the  use  of  the  lower  forms  of  schools 
and  colleges.  The  author  is  the  well-known  Professor  Schwat- 
zenpiffel, of  Chicago,  whose  learned  treatise  on  "handcuffs" 
created  such  a  stir  in  the  literary  world  not  long  ago.  This  Dollar 
Bill  Treasury  is  absolutely  the  finest  thing  of  its  kind  which  has 
ever  appeared.  The  author  says  so  himself.  To  quote  from  the 
Preface  :  "Other  editors  and  collectors  have  laboured  worthily 
in  this  field  of  literary  endeavour,  but  even  the  most  superficial 
acquaintance  with  this  book  will  suffice  to  convince  our  readers 
that  we  have  surpassed  them  all." 

As  it  would  be  impossible  for  me  to  give  the  writer  any 
greater  praise  than  he  has  given  himself,  I  will  leave  it  at  that. 
This  wonderful  work  can  be  purchased,  as  the  title  suggests,  for 
the  perfectly  ridiculous  sum  of  one  dollar.  The  paper  must  have 
cost  a  good  part  of  a  dollar- — especially  in  these  days  of  scarcity. 
To  have  offered  the  book  for  anything  less  than  that  would  have 
been  like  paying  you  to  take  it  away. 

Having  "called  the  attention  of  the  public  to  this  monument 
of  research,  all  that  remains  for  me  to  do  now  is  to  give  an  illus- 
tration of  the  masterly  manner  in  which  the  author  handles  his 
material.  I  will  take  as  an-example  Poem  Number  179,  page  367, 
entitled  "Twinkle,  twinkle,  little  star." 


Twinkle  (1104),  twinkle  (1105),  little  (1106),  star  (1107), 

How  I  wonder  what  you  are  (1108), 

Up  above  the  world  so  high. 

Like  a  diamond  (1109)  in  the  sky  (11 10). 


NOTES  (for  the  use  of  teachers) 

1 1 03.  It  will  be  noticed  that  this  poem  is  included  among  the 
Epics,  because  it  is  a  poem  of  action.  The  star  has  got  to 
"twinkle,"  and  twinkling  is  an  action.  Take  this  oppor- 
tunity of  explaining  to  the  class  the  difiference  between 
lyric,  epic,  didactic,  and  elegiac  poetry,  and  give  examples 
of  each  kind — if  there  are  any. 

Point  out  the  metre.  Explain  clearly  what  is  meant 
by  metre,  or,  ten  to  one,  they  will  run  away  with  the  idea 
that  you  mean  the  gas-meter.  Point  out  that  this  verse 
contains  four  sevens.  See  if  they  know  that  four  sevens 
make  twenty-eight.  By  this  means  you  are  not  only 
teaching  them  poetry  but  strengthening  their  arithmetic 
also.  Rule — Take  every  opportunity  of  making  everybody 
revise  everything. 

1 104.  Twinkle.  Only  fixed  stars  "twinl^le."  Therefore  the 
child  must  have  had  some  knowledge  of  astronomy.  Give 
a  lesson  on  the  stars  explaining  the  difference  between 
fixed  stars  and  planets.  Supply  class  with  a  complete 
list  of  all  the  stars  arranged  in  alphabetical  order.  (See 
Appendix  19,  page  11 76),  and  have  it  committed  to 

1 1 05.  Twinkle.  Note  the  repetition  of  the  word  twinkle,  which 
is  significant,  and  see  note  11 04. 

1 106.  Little.  Was  the  star  really  little  ?  Not  necessarily.  It 
might  have  been  a  big  star  a  long  way  off.  Explain  the 
laws  of  perspective,  and  conduct  a  few  practical  experi- 
ments to  illustrate  them.  For  example,  get  a  large  balloon, 
and  go  up  in  it.  On  returning  to  earth — if  you  ever  do 
return,  and  are  in  a  condition  to  continue  your  lesson,  ask 
the  class  whether  you  looked  as  big  when  you  were  out  of 
sight  as  you  do  in  the  class-room.  If  not,  why  not  ?  (You 
need  not  ask  them  if  you  look  as  big  as  you  feel.  You 
couldn't  !) 

1 1 07.  Star.  See  note  11 04  and  Appendix  19.  No  agreement 
has  yet  been  reached  by  the  critics  as  to  which  star  is 
meant.  For  the  controversy  upon  this  thorny  question 
see  Appendix  43.  Explain  the  phrases  "mtisic-hall  star" 
and  "to  see  stars."  Point  out  that  the  child  had  undergone 
some  form  of  punishment   (probably  a  whipping)   or  he 


would  not  have  seen  stars  at  all.     Elucidate  the  subtle 
connection  between  "Stars"  and  "Stripes." 

1108.  How  I  wonder  what  you  are.  Note  the  stupidity  of  the 
child.  He  first  tells  us  that  it  is  a  star,  and  then  proceeds 
to  wonder  what  it  is  !  Such  stupidity  can  only  be  explain- 
ed on  one  ground.     The  child  was  a  lunatic. 

1 1 09.  Diamond.     Chemical  formula  C.    Allotropic  modifications 
plumbago  (or  graphite)  and  common  charcoal.     Found  at 

Kimberley  (see  Appendix  52  for  History  of  the  Second 
Boer  War).  Draw  a  map  of  Africa,  putting  in  Kimberley  ; 
then  draw  a  map  of  Kimberley,  putting  in  diamonds.  For 
use  of  diamonds  see  Encyclopedia  Britannica  (Letter  D). 
Give  note  on  engagement  rings.  What  is  the  use  of  them  ? 
For  diamonds  in  cards  see  Appendix  87.  Also  see  Charles 
VL  of  France  in  Biographia  Gallica,  and  Hallam's  History 
of  the  Middle  Ages.  Explain  the  phrase  "diamond  cut 
diamond,"  and  give  note  on  the  "glazier's  diamond." 
HID.  Having  concluded  the  notes,  have  every  word  parsed  and 
every  sentence  analyzed.  Then  make  every  member  of 
the  class  paraphrase  the  passage.  Some  such  form  as  this 
might    be    insisted    on  : 

"Scintillate,  scintillate,  globule  oblific. 
Fain  would  I  fathom  thine  ether's  specific." 

Finally,  if  there  is  still  any  beauty  left  in  the  original  poem, 
proceed  to  squeeze  it  out  of  it  by  some  other  means. 

E.  C.  B. 



AS  the  above  title  would  in  all  probability  be  misleading,  it 
might  be  well  to  explain  that  the  ass  in  question  is  in  this 
case  not  of  the  human  variety,  but  a  young,  well-fed  and  extremely 
contrary  donkey,  Vice  Versa  by  name,  owned  by  one  Mrs.  Rastus, 
of  Grenada,  Mississippi. 

If  you  were  to  ask  a  Canadian  as  to  the  whereabouts  of 
Grenada,  ten  to  one  he  would  scratch  his  head,  look  swiftly  at 
you,  and — continue  to  scratch.  But  ask  a  man  from  Tennessee 
if  he  has  ever  heard  of  Grenada,  and  he  will  gaze  upon  you  with 
the  air  of  one  who  has  been  deeply  insulted,  for  has  he  not  lost 
many  dollars  at  the  famous  racecourse  of  the  largest  horse-town 
in  the  Big-River  State  ? 

He  will  then  begin  to  answer  your  question  in  a  very  hearty 
if  not  quite  enlightening  manner,  and  will  explain  to  you  explicitly 
just  what  he  thinks  of  the  city,  its  inhabitants,  racecourses  in 
general,  and,  above  all,  the  perverseness  of  racehorses.  However, 
to  continue  my  story — 

The  aforementioned  Vice  Versa,  when  not  employed  in  draw- 
ing the  little  wagon  in  which  Mammy  Rastus  collected  her  wash- 
ing, was  wont  to  "iwile  away  the  tejum,"  as  they  say  in  the  South, 
by  gorging  thistles  intermingled  with  a  few  of  the  choicest  shirts 
from  Mammy  Rastus's  clothesline. 

Vice  Versa  had  but  one  other  mission  to  perform  in  life. 

Once  a  year  at  the  Spring  Meet,  the  first  race  was  open,  and, 
in  evidence  of  the  enthusiasm  with  which  the  Southerners  greeted 
the  beginning  of  the  season,  the  stakes  were  very  large,  the  winner 
getting  a  $5,000  prize. 

Now  it  was  the  custom  at  this  race  to  enter,  for  the  benefit 
of  the  onlookers,  a  donkey,  who  always  provided  great  amusement 
for  the  spectators.  For  this  purpose,  once  a  year  Vice  Versa  was 
hired  from  Mrs.  Rastus  and  never  failed  to  create  entertainment 
by  his  crazy  antics  before  the  grand  stand.  Of  course  Vice  Versa 
never  ran,  but  he  was  entered  with  all  due  ceremony  even  as  to 
the  racing-fee. 

On  the  particular  occasion  of  our  story,  Vice  Versa,  in  his 
eagerness  to  appease  the  inner  man  (or  donkey)  had  ravenously 
consumed  for  his  morning  meal  two  shirts  printed  in  fast  dye  and 



stiff  with  abundant  starch,  and  about  half  a  bushel  of  a  medicinal 
herb  commonly  known  as  smart  weed.  This  combination  of 
breakfast  foods  had  an  eflfect  that  will  be  lon<,'  remembered  in  the 
racing  annals  of  Grenada,  Miss. 

The  great  gong  clanged  to  announce  the  opening  race,  and  a 
great  cheer  went  up  as  first  the  favourite  and  last  of  all  innocent- 
looking  Vice  Versa  cantered  out  to  the  course.  The  jockeys  lined 
up,  the  barrier  was  raised,  and  away  they  went  to  a  flying  start. 
Now  the  little  donkey  began  his  mischief.  Picking  out  the  fav- 
ourite, he  gave  him  a  nip  on  the  haunch  as  he  swept  past.  The 
racer  whinnied,  broke  in  his  stride,  jumped,  and  his  jockey  landed 
in   the   grand   stand. 

His  chosen  enemy  out  of  the  way.  Vice  Versa  proceeded  still 
further  in  his  defiance  of  tradition.  He  set  off  after  the  leader 
at  a  brisk  canter.  Of  course  this  was  not  on  the  programme  and 
his  jockey  tried  to  run  him  in. 

Now.  if  there  was  one  thing  which  Vice  Versa  would  not 
stand  for,  it  was  to  be  held  in  when  he  wanted  to  go.  So,  taking 
the  bit  between  his  teeth,  he  set  off  at  a  surprising  rate,  and  over- 
taking the  laggards,  he  steadily  crept  upon  the  leading  horses. 
The  effects  of  his  peculiar  morning  mxal  were  now  beginning  to 

The  three-quarter  flag  swept  past  the  astonished  jockey,  but 
the  donkey  had  yet  his  highest  trump  to  play.     Coming  abreast 


of  the  leader,  he  neighed,  bared  his  teeth,  and  charged.  His 
adversary,  a  nervous  bmte,  immediately  jumped  the  fence,  and 
took  a  short  cut  home  I 

The  donkey  now  had  the  field  behind  him,  so,  shooting  his 
ears  forward  (probably  to  shade  his  eyes),  he  trotted  across  the 
line,  winner  by  twenty-five  feet  ;  and  not  waiting  for  the  applause 
or  the  $5,000,  he  calmly  hurled  his  jockey  with  unerring  aim  into 
the  State  Governor's  box,  and  started  for  home,  there  to  indulge, 
as  he  told  himself,  in  a  few  tasty  thistles,  and,  if  he  were 
lucky,  a  newly  washed  shirt  or  two.

,A  Lecture  Recently  Delivered  at  the  St.  Andrew's  College 
Kennel  Club — by  "Mike" 

THE  chairman,  Juno,  having  introduced  the  speaker  in  a  few 
well-chosen  words,  the  lecture  proceeded  as  follows  : — 
To  an  observant  Airedale,  life  at  St.  Andrew's  College  affords 
many  opportunities  for  the  study  of  human  nature.  The  entente 
which  has  prevailed  for  so  many  centuries  between  the  canine  and 
the  human  species,  is  one  that  bids  fair  to  continue.  (Some  growl- 
ing.) It  is  to  be  desired,  however,  in  the  interests  of  our  race, 
that  the  alliance  should  be  turned  to  greater  advantage  by  us  ;  so 
that  not  only  may  the  great  end  and  object  of  existence — grub — 
be  successfully  attained,  but  also  that  our  superior  mental  and 


moral  qualities — our  Kultur,  as  the  Dachshunds  say — may  not  be 
corrupted  by  contact  with  what,  in  spite  of  many  undoubted 
physical  advantages,  must  be  regarded  as  a  "lesser  breed."  (Ap- 

An  unkind  accident  of  Nature,  indeed,  has  bestowed  upon 
this  slow-footed,  small-mouthed  creature,  man,  an  undoubted 
advantage  in  the  possession  of  hands — a  handicap  which  goes  far 


to  recompense  him  for  a  feeble  pair  of  jaws,  and  an_  almost  rudi- 
mentary sense  of  smell.  We  marvel  indeed  at  the  helplessness 
of  a  race  which,  amid  a  world  of  enemies,  has  to  judge  by  deceitful 
appearances,  instead  of  by  the  infallible  test  of  scent.  Their  power 
of  discrimination,  their  sense  of  proportion,  are  thus  hopelessly 
at  fault.'  How  absurd  it  sounds,  for  example,  when,  to  express 
the  attractiveness  of  a  locality  you  will  hear  them  say  :  "What 
a  beautiful  view  ! "  — which  with  them  takes  the  place  of  :  "  There 
is  a  fine  smell  here."      (Much  laughter.) 

However,  thanks  to  the  nature  of  their  upper  extremities, 
humans  have  obtained  what  may  be  called  a  strategic  position  as 
regards  the  control  of  Grub.  By  this  means  they  gain  access  to 
the  interior  of  Houses — those  marvellous  treasuries  of  nature, 
stocked  beyond  belief  with  endless  stores  of  eatables  and  other 
comforts,  as  well  as,  alas  !  with  numerous  instruments  of  torture 
such  as  chains,  collars,  washtubs  and  pianos,  sadly  familiar  to 
you  all.      (Prolonged  howling.) 

Thanks  to  the  same  advantage,  they  have  contrived  to  enforce 
upon  our  kind  a  bodily  subjection,  so  galling  to  a  dog  of  spirit — a 
subjection  to  which  eloquent  protest  is  vainly  raised,  I  well  know, 
by  more  than  one  among  this  gathering.  (At  this  reference,  the 
feelings  of  Rags  were  so  affected,  and  expressed  in  such  unpar- 
liamentary language,  that  the  chairman  was  compelled  to  exert 
her  authority.  When  comparative  silence  was  restored,  the  lec- 
ture proceeded.) 

The  control  of  grub,  I" say,  thus  unfairly  vested  in  the  race  of 
bipeds,  has  resulted  in  an  alliance  which,  I  grieve  to  observe,  often 
leads  to  the  appearance,  and  even  the  feeling,  of  servitude  on  our 
part.  It  is  to  warn  my  younger  friends  against  an  exaggeration 
of  this  feeling  that  I  venture  to  address  this  intelligent  audience. 
(Great  tail- wagging.) 

As  you  are  all  aware,  it  is  my  privilege,  or  my  fate,  to  share 
the  roof  of  a  human  who  belongs  to  the  variety  called  Headmaster. 
Unlike  the  inferior  but  allied  race  of  Masters,  headmasters  are  not 
gregarious,  but  prefer  to  live  in  comparative  seclusion.  This 
particular  headmaster  is  an  individual  of  no  little  authority  in 
the  world  of  mankind,  and  appears  to  be  top-dog  (as  we  would 
say)  of  the  Kennel,  or  College,  of  St.  Andrew's.  You  will  under- 
stand the  low  opinion  I  have  come  to  entertain  of  man's  intelli- 
gence when  I  mention  that  this  human,  though  possessed  of  some- 
what imposing  physique,  lives  in  a  condition  of  abject  submission 


to  the  women-folk  of  his  household,  and  in  particular  to  one  called 
Cook.  This  person  is  allowed  to  reign  supreme  in  the  choicest 
rooms  in  the  house — the  kitchen  and  pantry — and  though  she 
could  at  any  moment  be  overpowered,  and  the  larder  sacked  of 
its  stores  of  eatables,  such  an  attempt  has  never,  within  my  knowl- 
edge, been  made  by  this  so-called  headmaster,  who  meekly  submits 
to  accepting  what  is  doled  out  to  him  in  limited  quantities  at 
certain  fixed  hours — an  arrangement  to  which  I  myself  am  often 
obliged  to  accommodate  myself,  though  not  to  the  extent  fondly 
imagined  by  my  self-styled  "mistress."     (Laughter.) 

Now,  I  put  it  to  you,  my  friends,  can  you  imagine  such  a 
state  of  things  being  tolerated  in  our  world  ?  Can  you  conceive 
the  possibility  of  an  Airedale,  or  even  a  Fox-terrier,  submitting 
to  the  ignominy  of  subjection,  say,  to  a  Dachshund  or  a  Pom  ? 
(No,  no  I  and  yowls  of  derision.) 

Similar  signs  of  unaccountable  feebleness  of  spirit  meet  us 
at  every  turn.  Thus  the  young  of  the  species — as  can  be  observed 
here  at  any  time — yield  a  tame  submission  to  the  commands  of 
their  frequently  insignificant-looking,  so-called  "masters".  True, 
a  close  approach  to  canine  standards  of  intelligence,  in  the  matter 
of  grub  especially,  frequently  arouses  sympathetic  hopes  as  to 
the  possibilities  of  the  human  Boy.  Other  wholesome  effects  of 
our  presence  and  example  may  here  be  noted.  Often,  when 
passing  the  place  called  the  Assembly  Hall,  I  have  been  moved 
to  sympathetic  response  by  the  kennel-like  sounds  proceeding 
from  its  interior.  Again,  I  need  not  remind  you  of  the  uncon- 
scious tribute  paid  to  us  by  St.  Andrew's  boys  when  they  give 
that  very  creditable  imitation  of  barking,  known  as  College  yells. 
But  as  for  their  ideas  of  sport  !  It  is  indeed  lamentable  to  ob- 
serve the  misguided  zeal  with  which  these  husky  youths,  for 
hours  at  a  time,  will  worry  and  maul  one  another  for  the  possession 
of  an  empty  leather  bag — a  thing  of  little  interest  to  either  taste 
or  smell,  as  I  have  repeatedly  verified.  Often  it  has  aroused  my 
wonder,  that  the  boy  who  secures  possession  of  the  coveted  object 
has  it  in  his  power  to  escape  with  his  booty  into  the  surrounding 
country,  and  so  decide  the  contest.  But  this  obvious  proceeding 
never  seems  to  occur  to  one  of  them,  and  though  I  have  myself 
frequently  volunteered,  by  personal  example,  to  suggest  such  a 
course,  my  efforts,  far  from  meeting  with  appreciation,  have  been 
received  with  contumely.     (Shame  !) 



Equally  tragic  has  been  the  failure  of  my  efiforts  to  arouse  in 
my  "master"  the  dormant  instinct  of  the  chase.  At  an  earlier 
period  of  my  career,  often,  when  passing  near  a  herd  of  cattle  or 
sheep — knowing  that  the  flesh  of  these  animals  is  as  much  appre- 
ciated by  man  as  it  is  with  us — (great  applause) — I  would  en- 
deavour, by  giving  him  a  lead,  to  awaken  some  dim  sense  of  his 
opportunities.  But  here  I  must  draw  a  veil  over  the  results 
which  attended  my  well-meant  efforts.  They  are  of  too  painful 
a  character.  (Here  the  lecturer  was  visibly  afifected,  and  was  for 
some  minutes  unable  to  proceed.     Resuming,  he  said  :) 

Among  the  many  futile  and  meaningless  activities  of  this 
strange  race,  I  may  refer  to  the  absurd  and  offensive  practice 
known  as  smoking.  The  object  of  this  pursuit  seems  to  be  the 
destruction  (doubtless  owing  to  its  offensive  smell)  of  a  substance 
called  tobacco,  or,  more  descriptively,  the  Weed.  Instead,  how- 
ever, of  simply  throwing  this  weed  into  the  fire,  or  burying  it,  or 
eating  it,  or  otherwise  disposing  of  it  once  for  all,  as  the  least 
intelligent  of  our  kind  would  do  in  short  order,  it  is  consumed 
solemnly  in  minute  quantities  at  a  time,  this  labour  forming,  in 
fact,  the  chief  activity  of  masters.  Boys,  we  must  acknowledge, 
are  strongly  averse  to  it  ;  the  few  who  endeavour  to  curry  favour 
with  the  masters  by  smoking  being  driven  by  their  fellows  to 
remote  and  desolate  places  to  conceal  their  shame.  Some,  victims 
to  a  foolish  sense  of  duty,  but  unable  to  tolerate  the  obnoxious 
fumes,  mitigate  the  horror  of  the  ordeal  and  conceal  their  suffer- 
ings by  the  friendly  help  of  darkness,  and  an  open  window.  (Sen- 

Another  point  of  superiority  which  distinguishes  the  boy 
from  his  degenerate  elders  and  calls  for  special  sympathy  from  us, 
is  the  fidelity  which,  iri  spite  of  persecution  from  his  masters,  he 
clings  to  the  use  of  Dog-Latin, — a  language  which  appears  to  have 




been  at  one  time  prevalent  among  mankind.  Nor  is  it  without 
significance  that  the  young  of  the  British  species  love  to  describe 
themselves  as  "Boys  of  the  Bulldog  Breed."  But  here  again  we 
Airedales  stand  aghast  at  the  pig-headed  stupidity  shown  in  their 
selection  of  such  a  bow-legged,  undershot,  snub-nosed,  stunted, 
short-winded,  crooked-tail  variety  of  our  race  as

which  had  found  its  way  into  the  audience.  The  meeting  rose 
as  one  dog  to  eject  the  intruder,  chairman  and  lecturer  joining 
the  chase.  Owing  to  the  necessity  of  going  to  press,  our  reporter's

''  I  '0  even  mention  the  beastly  things  gives  me  a  cold  shiver  down 
^  the  spinal  cord.  The  very  thought  brings  back  to  me,  with 
appalling  realism,  the  darkened  room,  the  myriads  of  pesky  spots, 
the  everlasting  odour  and  taste  of  - — 

But  the  measles  weren't  the  whole  tragedy,  for  the  last  time 
I  had  them  I  quite  enjoyed  myself.  The  real  trouble  was  all  the 
fun  I  was  going  to  miss.  On  Tuesday  morning,  January  29,  when 
I  was  peacefully  sitting  in  the  sun,  I  discovered  some  spots  on  my 
hand,  which,  for  the  time  being,  caused  me  considerable  concern. 
I  thought  of  measles,  and  at  the  same  moment  thought  of  a  skating 
party  the  next  Friday! 

As  the  morning  wore  on  the  spots  became  more  numerous, 
and  when  the  boy  behind  me  told  me  that  my  neck  was  covered 
I  decided  that  it  was  time  to  know  the  Worst.  I  disclosed  my 
fears  to  the  gentleman  who  gave  me  this  interesting  news  and  he 
remarked,  feelingly,  "You  lucky  dog."  "You  can  have  them," 
said  I,  but  there  was  no  use  purposely  giving  "them"  to  him,  so  I 
told  the  master  in  charge.  He  looked  exceedingly  shocked,  but 
sent  me  on  my  way  rejoicing  to  the  Medical  Examiner. 

The  latter  started  pulling  me  and  pushing  me  about  Then, 
he  butted  me  on  the  chest  with  the  side  of  his  head  and  said  im- 
pressively, "You  certainly  have  something.  Come  along  and  see 
the  nurse."  So,  although  a  nurse  was  no  novelty  to  me,  I  went 
"along  to  see  the  nurse,"  who  told  me  I  was  taking  either  measles 
or  scarlet  fever.  I  told  her  that  I  had  already  had  measles  three 
times  and  she  said  she  guessed  it  was  scarlet  fever. 

After  giving  me  this  comforting  bit  of  information  she  told 
me  to  pack  off  home  as  fast  as  possible.  As  I  was  not  quite  sure 
just  what  method  of  locomotion  ' '  packing  off ' '  was  I  was  tempted 
to  say,  "Suppose  I  walk,"  but  the  awful  truth  that  I  would  have 
to  miss  the  Latin  period  dawned  upon  me  and  the  idea  so  dis- 
concerted me  that  I  refrained. 

On  the  way  home  I  thoroughly  convinced  myself  that  by  the 
same  time  next  week  I  would  be  dead,  and  I  remember  vaguely 
wondering  whether  or  not  it  would  be  in  the  Easter  Review,  so 
one  can  well  judge  the  melancholy  nature  of  my  thoughts.  Upon 
arriving  home  I  went  straight  to  bed,  or  rather  as  straight  as  pos- 
sible under  the  circumstances,  as  the  terrible  disease,  whatever  it 
was,  was  beginning  to  take  effect  on  me.     However,  as  soon  as  I 



was  in  bed  and  thorouj^hly  warm  there  was  no  doubt  about  what 
I  had,  for  the  spots  fairh-  fell  over  themselves  coming  out. 

I  was  in  bed  only  four  da\-s  with  the  things  and  the  day  I  got 
up  the  quarantine  sign  was  put  up.  The  doctor  said  I  could  go 
out  if  I  wished  and  in  a  few  da\'s  I  went,  and  consequently  had  the 
whole  neighbourhood  guessing  as  to  who  was  ill. 

One  day  someone  from  the  College  telephoned  and  asked  me 
when  I  would  be  back.  I  thoughtlessly  said,  "In  a  few  days." 
Later  the  same  day  one  of  the  College  officials  telephoned'  and 
said  that  on  no  condition  whatever  was  I  to  go  back  till  I  had 
passed  the  medical  examination. 

I  tell  you  it  made  me  feel  fine  to  know  I  had  the  whole  School 
scared  of  me.  It  always  has  been  one  of  the  great  ambitions  of 
my  life.  I  was  very  glad,  however,  to  be  able  to  go  around  again 
with  everyone  describing  circles  around  me  to  get  out  of  the  way. 
I  may  add  that  the  fellow  who  wanted  the  measles  was  one  of  the 
few  in  the  form  who  didn't  take  them.

My  dear  Egbert, — Your  mother  informs  me  that  to-morrow, 
the  7th  inst.,  is  your  fifteenth  birthday.  I  therefore  take  this  op- 
portunity of  combining  my  customary  greetings  with  a  few  ob- 
servations on  your  half-term  report,  which  has  just  reached  me. 
It  is  a  most  deplorable  document.  With  the  exception  of  your 
health  (which  is  described  as  "excellent "),  and  j^our  violin-playing 
(which  I  note  is  "most  energetic"),  I  can  find  no  cause  for  con- 
gratulation or  even  satisfaction  in  your  record  for  the  past  half- 
term.  Indeed,  were  it  not  for  the  existence  of  the  deep-seated 
conspiracy  (of  which  you  have  so  frequently  and  so  earnestly 
warned  me)  among  the  masters  at  your  school,  to  deprive  you  of 
your  just  marks  and  so  prevent  you  from  taking  your  rightful 
place  at  the  head  of  the  form,  I  should  almost  suspect  you  of 

I  enclose  ten  shillings  as  a  birthday  gift.  If  you  could  con- 
trive during  the  next  half-term  to  overcome  the  unfortunate  pre- 
judice with  which  the  Grandwich  staff  appears  to  be  inspired 
against  3'ou,  I  might  see  my  way  to  doing  something  rather  more 
handsome  at  Christmas. — Your  affectionate  father, 

John  Henry  Bumpleigh.

My  dear  Father, — Thanks  awfully  for  the  ten  bob.  Yes,  it 
is  most  deplorable  as  you  say  about  my  report.  I  feel  it  very 
much.  It  is  a  rum  thing  that  I  should  have  come  out  bottom,  for 
I  have  been- working  fearfully  hard  lately.  I  expect  a  mistake 
has  been  made  in  adding  up  the  marks.  You  see,  they  are  all 
sent  in  to  the  form-master  at  half-term,  and  he,  being  a  classical 

*From  "The  Lighter  Side    of  School  Life",  by  Ian  Hay,  Author  of  "The 
First  Htmdred  Thousand,"  etc. 


man.  naturally  can't  do  mathematics  a  bit,  so  he  adds  up  the 
marks  all  anyhow,  and  practically  anybody  comes  out  top.  It  is 
ver}"  dishartening.  I  think  it  would  be  better  if  I  went  on  the 
Modern  Side  next  term.  The  masters  there  are  just  as  ignerant 
and  unfair  as  on  the  classical,  but  not  being  classical  men  they  do 
know  soinething  about  adding  up  marks.  So  if  I  went  I  might  get 
justice  done  me.  I  must  now  stop,  as  I  have  several  hours  more 
prep,  to  do,  and  I  want  to  go  and  ask  Mr.  Killick  for  leave  to  work 
on  after  bed-time. — Your   affec.   son,

My  dearest  Boy, — Very  many  happy  returns  of  your  birth- 
day. The  others  (Genealogical  Tree  omitted  here)  .  .  .  send  their 
best  love. 

I  fear  your  father  is  not  quite  pleased  with  your  half-term 
report.  It  seems  a  pity  you  cannot  get  higher  up  in  your  form, 
but  I  am  sure  you  try,  my  boy.  I  don't  think  Father  makes  quite 
enough  allowance  for  your  health.  With  3"our  weak  digestion, 
long  hours  of  sedentary  work  must  be  very  tr^ang  at  times.  Ask 
the  matron  .  .  .  {one  page  omitted).  I  enclose  ten  shillings,  and 
will  send  you  the  almond  cake  and  potted  lobster  you  ask  for. — 
Your  affectionate  mother,  ^Martha  Bumpleigh. 


November  7. 
Dear  Mum, — Thanks  ever  so  much  for  the  ten  bob,  also  the 
lobster  and  cake,  which  are  Ai.  Yes,  the  pater  wrote  to  me  about 
my  report — rather  a  harsh  letter,  I  thought.  Still,  we  must  make 
allowances  for  him.  When  he  was  young  education  was  a  very 
simple  matter.  Now  it  is  the  limit.  My  digestion  is  all  right, 
thanks,  but  my  head  aches  terribly  towards  the  end  of  a  long  day 
of  seven  or  eight  hours'  work.  Don't  mention  this  to  the  pater, 
as  it  might  worry  him.  I  shall  work  on  to  the  end,  but  if  the 
strain  gets  too  rfiuch  it  might  be  a  sound  plan  for  me  to  go  on  the 
Modern  Side  next  term.  You  might  mention  this  cassualy  to  the 
pater.  I  must  stop  now,  as  the  prayer-bell  is  ringing. — Your 
affec.  son,  E.  Bumpleigh.)

My  DEAR  Nephew, — Another  year  has  gone  by,  and  once 
more  I  am  reminded  that  my  little  godson  is  growing  up  to  man's 
estate.  Your  fifteenth  birthday  !  And  I  remember  when  you 
were  only — {Here  Master  Egbert  skips  three  sheets  and  comes  to  the 
last  page  of  the  letter)  .  .  I  am  sending  you  a  birthday  present — 
something  of  greater  value  than  usual.  It  is  a  handsome  and 
costly  edition  of  Forty  Years  of  Missionary  Endeavour  in  Eastern 
Polynesia,  recently  published.  The  author  has  actually  signed 
his  name  upon  the  fly-leaf  for  you.  Think  of  that  !  The  illus-

are  well,  and  pursuing  your  studies  diligently. — Your  affectionate

Dear  Aunt  Deborah, — ^Thank  you  very  much  for  so  kindly 
remembering  my  birthday.  The  book  has  just  arrived,  and  I 
shall  always  look  upon  it  as  one  of  my  most  valued  possessions.  I 
will  read  it  constantly — whenever  I  have  time,  in  fact  ;  but  really 
after  being  in  school  hard  at  work  for  ten  or  twelve  hours  a  day, 
one  is  more  inclined  for  bed  than  books,  even  one  on  such  an 
absorbing  subject  as  this.  I  am  much  interested  in  Missionary 
Endeavours,  and  help  them  in  every  way  I  can.  We  are  having 
a  sermon  on  the  subject  next  Sunday.  There  is  to  be  a  collection, 
and  I  intend  to  make  a  special  effort. — Your  affec.  nephew,

YuiLL  ("Hop"),  L.  Defence — Only  old  colour  on  the  team. 
Captained  his  team  well  and  was  always  equal  to  an  emergency. 
Plays  a  strong  offensive  game,  and  also  backchecks  well. 

Rendell  ("Ren"),  R.  Defence — A  steady  player  on  the 
defensive.     Played  well  in  all  the  games. 

McIntosh  ("Sandy"),  Rover — Lacked  weight  but  always 
plays  his  position  and  backchecks  in  good  style. 

Gordon  I.  ("Gordie"),  R.  Wing — A  fast  skater  and  a  good 
stickhandler.     Has  a  hard  shot  and  uses  it. 

MosELEY  ("Paul"),  Centre — Plays  his  position  well.  Came 
up  from  last  year's  Seconds. 

Thompson  ("Johnnie"),  L.  Wing — A  good  offensive  player. 
He  works  in  well  with  the  other  forwards. 


Harstone    ("Bobbie"),    Goal — Plays  a   steady   game.     He 
was  conspicuous  in  the  second  Upper  Canada  game. 

The  thanks  of  the  team  are  due  Rolph  L   (Ernie)  for  the 
manner  in  which  he  looked  after  the  team  off  the  ice.

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

On  Monday,  January  15th,  St.  Andrew's  College  played  their 
first  Junior  O.H.A.  hockey  match  at  the  Arena  against  University 

The  teams  were  as  follows  : 

r.T.S.  Position  S.A.C, 

McPherson Goal Ross  II. 

Boulter  (capt.) Defence Yuill  (capt.) 

White Defence Rendell 

Gunn R.  wing : .  .  .  Gordon 

McLeod L.  wing Gallagher 

Aggett Centre Mosfeley 

Jeffries Rover Mcintosh 

Referee — Waghorne . 
University  Schools  won  the  toss  and  chose  the  north  end  of 
the  rink.  Within  two  minutes  after  play  had  commenced*  Jeffries 
scored  the  first  goal.  Play  now  became  very  fast.  Boulter  was 
penalized  for  tripping.  McLeod  secured  a  goal  for  University 
Schools  after  a  beautiful  rush  from  behind  his  own  net.  Half  a 
minute  later  Mcintosh,  by  clever  stick-handling,  scored  a  point 
for  St.  Andrew's. 

After  five  minutes  of  strenuous  play  University  School  secured 
another  goal  to  which  Moseley  quickly  retaliated  by  scoring  on  a 
pass  from  Gordon. 

The  last  score  of  the  period  was  made  by  Boulter.     This  was 
followed  b}'  five  minutes  of  even  play. 
U.T.s!,  4  ;  S.A.C,  2, 

Verv  shortly  after  the  second  period  had  commenced,  Jeffries 
scored  a  goal  for  University  Schools.  This  was  closely  followed 
by  another  point  for  U.T.S.,  made  by  McLeod.  Then  ended  a 
series  of  rushes  by  both  teams,  the  puck  changing  hands  with 
great  rapidity.  One  of  these  rushes  resulted  in  a  score  for  Uni- 
versity Schools  by  Aggett.  Gordon  now  scored  a  goal  on  one  of 
his  famous  long  shots.     McLeod  was  given  a  two-minute  penalty

for  tripping.     He  returned  to  the  ice  in  time  to  score  a  goal  for 
U.T.S.  before  the  bell  rang. 

U.T.S.,  8  ;   S.A.C.,  3. 

The  third  period  revealed  a  lack  of  condition  on  the  part  of 
St.  Andrew's.  After  five  minutes  of  play,  Moseley  scored  a  goal 
on  a  passing  front  of  the  U.T.S.  goal.  This  was  quickly  followed 
by  a  score  by  Gordon. 

U.T.S.,  8  ;   S.A.C.,  5. 

St.  Andrew's  now  made  a  splendid  try  to  overcome  the  lead 
of  their  opponents  but  were  unable  to  score  any  goals.  McLeod 
and  Aggett  both  scored  goals  before  the  bell  rang,  making  the  final 
score  :     U.T.S.,  10  ;  S.A.C.,  5.

S.A.C.  vs.  DE  LA  SALLE 

On  Thursday,  January  i8th,  St.  Andrew's  Colleg'e  first  team 
met  the  team  from  De  La  Salle  at  the  Arena.  A  large  number  of 
supporters  were  present  on  each  side  to  cheer  on  their  respective 

Line-up  : 

De  La  Salle.  Position.  S.A.C. 

Ryan Goal Harstone 

Springs Defence Yuill  (capt.) 

Lynch Defence Rendell 

Lowry Centre Moseley 

Travers Rover Mcintosh 

Ingoldsby R.  wing Gordon 

McCurry L.  wing Thompson 

The  first  half  of  the  opening  period  failed  to  disclose  which 
team  was  the  better  of  the  two.  Both  teams  worked  hard,  but 
Ingoldsby's  efforts  were  the  first  to  be  rewarded  when  he  fooled 
Harstone  in  front  of  the  goal.  McCurry  and  Lowry  scored  goals 
in  quick  succession.  The  remainder  of  the  period  was  spent  with- 
out any  further  scoring. 

D.L.S.,  3  ;  S.A.C,  o. 

The  second  period  showed  a  strong  determination  on  the  part 
of  St.  Andrew's  to  even  the  score  if  possible.  A  rush  by  Moseley 
ended  successfully,  making  the  score  :     D.L.S.,  3  ;   S.A.C,  i. 


The  luck  of  S.A.G.  did  not  continue  after  Ingoldsby  had 
scored  a  goal,  for  before  the  close  of  the  period,  Lowry  had  one 
and  Travers  two  more  goals  to  La  Salle's  credit. 

D.L.S.,  7  ;  S.AC,  I. 

In  the  third  period  the  De  La  Salle  weight  began  to  tell  on 
the  lighter  Saint  Andrew's  men.  Harstone  showed  his  ability  to 
keep  goal  by  allowing  only  two  of  many  shots  to  get  past  him.  St. 
Andrew's  fought  hard  to  the  end,  but  with  no  effect  on  the  score. 

Final  score  :     De  La  Salle,  9  ;   St.  Andrew's,  i. 

J.  D.  F.  Ross. 

S.A.C.  vs.    U.C.C. 

On  Monday,  January  22nd,  at  four  o'clock,  the  first  team  met 
the  team  from  Upper  Canada  College  at  the  Arena  Gardens.  The 
teams  lined  up  as  follows  : 

U.C.C.  '  S.A.C. 

Hardaker Goal Harstone 

Taylor L.  defence Rendell 

Rowland R.  defence Yuill 

Gledhill L.  wing Thompson 

Todd R.  wing Gordon 

Walker Rover Mcintosh 

Tyrrel Centre Gordon  I. 


Promptly  at  four  o'clock  Referee  Waghorne  rang  his  bell  and 
the  game  was  called.  U.C.C.  having  won  the  toss,  chose  the 
south  end  of  the  rink  and  from  the  commencement  play  was 
strenuous.  Both  teams  displayed  splendid  combination  and  in 
spectacular  rushes  the  forwards  carried  the  puck  from  end  to  end 
of.  the  rink.  For  S.A.C,  Gordon  and  Moseley  were  prominent, 
the  foriher  sending  in  several  fast  shots  which  Hardaker  cleared 
well.  Walker  on  a  lone  rush  shot  from  outside  our  defence  and 
Harstone  saved  cleverly.  For  U.C.C,  the  combination  of  Tyrrel, 
Gledhill  and  Todd  was  good,  and  Taylor  on  the  defence  was  work- 
ing hard.  They  were,  however,  unable  to  penetrate  Yuill  and 
Rendell  on  the  defence.     After  a  few  minutes'  more  evenly  con- 


tested  hockey,  Rowland  broke  away  on  a  lone  rush,  penetrated 
the  defence,  and  beat  Harstone  with  a  fast  shot  knee-high. 

U.C.C,  I  ;  S.A.Co. 

After  the  face-off,  the  S.A.C.  forwards,  by  their  strenuous 
efforts,  forced  the  play  and  in  a  scrimmage  before  the  U.C.C.  goal, 
Gordon  pushed  the  puck  past  Hardaker  for  the  tying  point. 
U.C.C,  I  ;  S.A.C,  I.  The  period  ended  soon  after  with  no  fur- 
ther score. 


The  hockey  displayed  from  the  opening  of  this  period  was  of 
the  fastest  variety,  each  team  exerting  itself  to  the  utmost.  Mc- 
intosh at  rover  was  extremely  fast  and  in  spite  of  his  light  weight 
one  of  the  most  useful  men  on  the  ice.  Walker  and  Todd  carried 
the  puck  past  the  S.A.C  defence,  but  Harstone  stopped  the  lat- 
ter's  shot.  A  half-minute  later  a  combination  by  Gledhill  and 
Walker  resulted  in  a  score.  After  the  face-off,  Thompson  and 
Yuill  were  instrumental  in  forcing  the  play  for  S.A.C,  and  only 
the  coolness  of  Hardaker  in  goal  prevented  our  scoring.  Some 
minutes  later  Howland,  on  a  lone  rush,  shot  from  outside  the 
defence  and  beat  Harstone  for  the  final  tally  of  the  period.  Dur- 
ing this  period  the  play  was  very  even  but  a  weakness  in  shooting 
was  apparent  on  the  part  of  the  S.A.C.  forwards. 


In  the  final  period  the  S.A.C.  men  directed  every  energy 
towards  overcoming  the  lead.  Moseley  and  Mcintosh  opened 
the  period  with  a  piece  of  fast  combination  which  resulted  in  the 
latter  scoring,  unfortunately  on  a  forward.  Thompson  and 
Moseley  then  took  the  puck  down  the  ice  and  in  a  scrimmage  in 
front  of  the  U.C.C.  goal,  Gordon  scored.  U.C.C,  3  ;  S.A.C,  2. 
S.A.C.  continued  to  press  for  the  remainder  of  the  game,  Thomp- 
son, by  reason  of  his  close  back-checking  and  clever  skating,  being 
especially  prominent.  Shot  after  shot  was  rained  in  upon  Hard- 
aker, but  his  splendid  work  in  goal  prevented  any  further  scoring. 

Full  time  score  :     U.C.C,  3  ;   S.A.C,  2. 

It  was  undoubtedly  the  best  contested  game  played  between 
the  two  colleges  in  years  and  the  hockey  was  of  excellent  grade. 
For  the  Upper  Canada  team,  Taylor  and  AValker  were  possibly 
the  most  useful  men.     For  St.  Andrew's  every  man  played  his 


place  and  to  select  an  individual  star  is  impossible.     Yuill,  how- 
ever, should  be  given  special  credit  for  playing  a  hard,  consistent 
game.  N.  M.  MacL. 


On  Wednesday  afternoon,  January  24th,  the  team  repre- 
senting St.  Andrew's  College  met  the  De  la  Salle  septette  in  their 
return  game.  Both  teams  presented  a  change  in  their  line-ups 
from  the  last  game.  Beath  played  on  the  defence  while  Yuill 
moved  up  to  the  forward  line  for  St.  Andrew's,  while  Walsh  was 
De  La  Salle's  new  forward. 

The  teams  were  as  follows  : 

De  La  Salle.  St.  Andrew's. 

Ryan Goal Harstone 

Spring Defence Beath 

Lynch Defence Rendell 

Ingoldsby Rover Mcintosh 

Lowery Centre Gordon 

Walsh Wing Yuill 

McCurry Wing Thompson 

Referee— Fred  Waghorne,  Sr. 


From  the  face-off  St.  Andrew's  pressed  hard,  but  after  about 
four  minutes  of  play,  McCurry  of  De  La  Salle  tallied  on  a  long 
shot  from  the  side  for  the  initial  goal  of  the  period.  Gordon  then 
made  a  lone  rush,  which  almost  resulted  in  a  score,  Ryan  of  De 
La  Salle  clearing  cleverly.  Both  teams  now  began  to  settle  down 
to  good  hockey,  with  De  La  Salle  using  their  weight  to  advantage. 
From  a  scrimmage  in  front  of  the  St.  Andrew's  net,  Lowry  beat 
Harstone  for  the  second  goal  of  the  period.  Soon  after  one  of  our 
opponents'  forwards  was  forced  to  retire  with  a  loose  skate,  Mac- 
intosh going  off  to  even  up.  A  few  minutes  later  the  period  ended 
with  St.  Andrew's  still  pressing  hard.  Score  :  De  La  Salle,  2  ; 
St.  Andrew's,  o. 

During  this  period  St.  Andrew's  had  a  great  deal  of  the  play, 
but  were  inclined  to  be  a  little  weak  in  shooting. 




At  the  opening  of  the  second  period  seven-man  hockey  was 
resumed.  For  the  first  few  minutes,  the  play  was  quite  even,  but 
De  La  Salle  soon  broke, -and  on  a  long  shot  from  the  side,  Lowery 
lodged  the  puck  in  the  corner  of  the  net.  This  was  followed  up 
a  half  a  minute  later  by  another  well  aimed  shot  from  outside  our 
deferice,  resulting  in  a  scorfe  by  Lowery.  After  about  six  minutes, 
in  which  Gordon  and  Thompson  played  good  hockey,  McCurry 
managed  to  slip  the  puck  past  Harstone  on  a  low  shot.  The  period 
ended  :     De  La  Salle,  5  ;   St.  Andrew's,  o. 



Fun  at  the  New  School  Grounds 

De  La  Salle  appeared  to  have  a  slight  margin  over  St.  An- 
drew's during  this  period.  However,  at  back-checking  St.  An- 
drew's were  good. 


The  last  period  opened  with  our  team  pressing  hard,  several 
times  missing  the  goal  by  a  few  inches.  De  La  Salle  secured  the 
puck,  circled  the  defence  and  scored. 

St.  Andrew's  began  to  weaken  now  and  it  was  only  the  good 
work  of  Harstone  that  prevented  many  scores.  After  a  number 
of  end-to-end  rushes,  Lowery  again  penetrated  the  defence  and 


managed  to  beat  Harstone  with  a  hard  shot,  making  the  final 
count  of  the  game  :     De  La  Salle,  7  ;  St.  Andrew's,  o. 

For  St.  Andrew's  it  is  hard  to  choose  the  stars,  but  the  playing 
of  Yuill.  Gordon,  and  Macintosh  is  worthy  of  mention,  while  for 
De  La  Salle,  Lowery  and  Ingoldsby  showed  up  well. 


U.C.C.  vs.  S.A.C. 

The  return  game  with  U.C.C.  was  played  Frida^^  January 
26th.  The  result  of  the  first  game  promised  a  closely  contested 
match  and  the  supporters  of  both  teams  were  out  in  force.  The 
teams  lined  up  as  follows  : 

S.A.C.  U.C.C. 

Harstone Goal Hardaker 

Rendell R..  defence Wright 

Beath L.  defence Taylor 

Thompson L.  wing Gledhill 

Yuill ....  R.  wing Todd 

Gordon Centre Tyrrel 

Mcintosh Rover Walker 

Referee — Waghorne . 


The  period  opened  with  a  fast  rush  by  Gordon,  Hardaker 
handling  his  shot  well.  Rendell  drew  a  penalty  in  the  first  two 
minutes  of  the  game  and  the  U.C.C.  men  put  forth  every  effort 
to  score.  The  good  work  of  our  forward  line,  however,  partic- 
ularly Yuill,  kept  our  men  on  the  offensive.  A  quarter-minute 
later,  still  playing  one  man  short,  Gordon  took  the  puck  down  the 
ice  and  beat  Hardaker  on  a  fast  shot  knee-high.  S.A.C,  i  ; 
U.C.C,  o. 

After  the  face-off  the  U.C.C.  men  renewed  their  efforts  and 
the  hocke}^  that  followed  was  of  the  fastest  variety.  The  whole 
S.A.C  forward  line  played  splendidly  and  displayed  a  superior 
combination  to  their  opponents.  Good  back-checking  by  S.A.C, 
resulted  in  several  lone  rushes  and  Harstone  saved  well  on  numer- 
ous occasions.  The  same  keen  pace  was  maintained  to  the  end 
of  the  period,  neither  side  scoring.     The  play  in  this  period  was 



distinctly  in  favour  of  St.  Andrew's.  The  forward  line  had  shown 
splendid  combination  and  the  U.C.C.  men  were  unable  to  pene- 
trate our  defence. 


The  same  strenuous  play  which  had  featured  the  first  period 
prevailed  during  the  second.  At  first  U.C.C.  pressed  hard, 
Walker,  Gledhill  and  Tyrrel  playing  well  together,  and  Taylor 
breaking  away  for  several  spectacular  rushes.  During  this  period 
the  back-checking  of  Thompson  and  Yuill  and  the  work  of  the 
defence  was  particularly  good.     Gordon  went  through  the  U.C.C. 

"Witn  Saintly  Shout  and  Solemn  Jubilee" 

{Upper  Vl.  Celebrating  their  (near)  Victory  over  the  All-Stars) 

defence  and  with  only  Hardaker  to  beat,  fell.  A  minute  later 
Thompson  carried  the  puck  up  the  ice  and  in  the  resultant  scrim- 
mage Gordon  batted  it  in.  (S.A.C.,  2  ;  U.C.C,  o).  On  the  re- 
sumption of  play,  Harstone  was  given  a  few  busy  moments.  After 
saving  cleverly  on  a  shot  from  Walker,  he  broke  up  a  scrimmage 
in  front  of  his  goal.  U.C.C.  were  still  pressing  when  the  period 
ended.     (S.A.C.,  2  ;  U.C.C,  o). 

This  period  had  been  somewhat  more  even.  For  S.A.C,. 
Thompson,  Yuill  and  Gordon  were  most  prominent,  while  Walker^ 
Gledhill  and  Tyrrel  played  good  hockey  for  U.C.C. 


The  final  period  was  marked  by  the  determined  efforts  of 
both  teams.     Yuill   and    Beath  featured  with  individual  rushes 


and  Tyrrel  penetrated  our  defence,  but  shot  wild.  Several  minor 
penalties  resulting  from  the  fastness  of  the  play  now  cleared  the 
ice  somewhat,  two  being  absent  from  each  team.  Tyrrel  on  a 
lone  rush  sent  a  hard  shot  at  Harstone,  who  saved  well.  Taylor 
sent  in  another  which  also  failed  to  score.  Gordon  then  again 
broke  away  and  scored  the  final  tallv  of  the  game.  S.A.C.,  3  ; 
U.C.C.,  o." 

The  whole  S.A.G.  team  played  well  and  each  man  played  his 
position.  Possibly,  however,  Yuill  and  Thompson  should  be 
mentioned  for  their  good  work  on  the  wings,  and  Mcintosh, 
though  the  lightest  man  on  the  ice,  was  very  fast.  Walker  was 
the  best  man  for  Upper  Canada  with  Gledhill  at  left  wing  and 
Hardaker  in  goal  also  being  exceptionally  good.

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

St.  Andrew's  College  met  University  Schools  in  the  return 
match  at  the  Arena  on  Tuesday,  January  30th.  A  large  crowd 
was  in  attendance  and  the  rooting  reminded  one  of  former  days. 

Line-up  : 

L'.T.S.  Position.  S.A.C. 

Sullivan Goal Harstone 

Munroe Defence Beath 

Boulter  (capt.) Defence Rendell 

Aggett Centre Gordon 

Jeffries Rover Mcintosh 

Gunn R.  wing Yuill  (capt.) 

McLeod L.  wing Thompson 

Jeffries  scored  for  University  Schools  on  a  shot  that  hardly 
left  the  ice,  but  which  somehow  bounded  over  Harstone's  stick. 

Jeffries  and  McLeod  next  scored  in  quick  success'ion,  thereby 
adding  two  points  to  U.T.S.  score.  Munroe  sent  Gordon  into  the 
boards  and  was  given  a  two-minute  penalty,  while  Mcintosh  was 
given  the  same  sentence  for  tripping  McLeod. 

Agget  sent  the  puck  past  Harstone  in  a  scramble  in  front  of 
his  goal,  making  the  score  for  the  first  period  :  U.T.S.,  4  ';  S.A.C,  o. 

In  the  second  period  the  teams  appeared  very  evenly  matched. 
A  long  shot  from  the  wing  by  Gordon  fooled  Sullivan.     This  was 


the  only  score  made  in  the  second  period.  St.  Andrew's  had  the 
better  of  the  play  and  the  bell  rang  with  St.  Andrew's  forwards 
bombarding  the  U.T.S.  goal.     U.T.S.,  4  ;  S.A.C.,  i. 

Jeffries  opened  the  third  period  by  scoring  a  goal  for  U.T.S. 
Munroe  followed  his  example,  and,  after  a  fine  rush  from  behind 
his  own  net,  placed  the  puck  in  the  corner  of  the  St.  Andrew's  net. 
The  rest  of  the  period  revealed  no  change  in  the  score. 

U.T.S.,  6  ;  S.A.C.,  i. 


The  game  was  clean,  fast  and  interesting  to  watch.  Yuill 
and  Mcintosh  played  splendid  games,  and  their  success  was  partly 
due  to  their  strenuous  back-checking. 

For  U.T.S.,  Aggett  and  Munroe  were  the  most  useful  men  on 
the  ice.  J.  D.  F.  Ross.

Referee — Rowden. 

St.  Andrew's  won  the  toss  and  took  the  east  end  of  the  rink. 
The  first  period  started  with  a  rush  and  S.A.C. 's  first  goal  was 
scored  by  Moseley  on  a  pass  from  Gordon.  This  was  repeated  a 
few  minutes  later.  Thompson  made  an  individual  rush  resulting 
in  a  goal.  Later  Yuill  got  a  goal  from  a  mix-up  iti  front  of  the  goal. 
At  first  the  keen  ice  puzzled  our  men,  but  they  soon  grew  accus- 
tomed to  it  and  the  scoring  became  more  frequent.  Moseley 
scored  two  goals  in  quick  succession,  ending  the  first  period  : 
S.A.C,  6  ;    T.C.S.,  o. 


At  the  beginning  of  the  second  period  the  Trinity  team 
exerted  themselves  to  the  utmost.  Lindsay  made  a  good  rush 
but  McLeod  cleared.  Roche  now  took  the  puck  the  length  of  the 
rink  and  scored  T.C.S.'s  first  goal.  This  seemed  to  awaken  our 
team,  with  the  result  that  many  shots  were  sent  at  the  T.C.S.  goal, 
one  from  centre  ice  finding  the  net.  Harper  scored  on  a  pass  from 
Woodman,  who  a  little  later  took  the  puck  from  one  end  to  the 
other  and  scored  with  a  good  shot  from  the  side.  This  was  re- 
peated a  few  minutes  later  and  it  looked  as  though  T.C.S.  were 
going  to  catch  up.  However,  throughout  the  whole  game  the 
result  was  never  in  doubt.  The  next  counter  for  St.  Andrew's 
was  by  Thompson  on  a  pass  from  Yuill.  A  few  minutes  later 
Moseley  scored  S.A.C.'s  ninth  goal.  The  last  point  in  the  game 
was  scored  by  a  good  shot  from  Gordon,  and  after  a  few  moments 
of  loose  play  time  was  called  with  the  score  :    S.A.C.,  lo  ;  T.C.S  4. 

For  St.  Andrew's,  Moseley  secured  most  goals  and  the 
whole  team  did  well,  while  for  T.C.S.,  Woodman  was  undoubtedly 
the  best  man.

T.C.S.  vs.  S.A.C. 

The  return  game  between  Trinity  College  School  and  St. 
Andrew's  took  place  on  Saturday,  February  17th,  at  the  Arena. 
The  spectators  were  rather  few  in  numbers,  but  those  who  did 
attend  lustily  cheered  their  respective  teams. 

The  line-up  was  as  follows  :

Sutherland R.  wing Gordon

Gossage Rover Mcintosh 

Referee — Waghorne . 

St.  Andrew's  won  the  toss  and  chose  the  north  end  of  the 
rink.  Play  commenced  with  a  series  of  bombardments  on  both 
goals,  but  the  goalkeepers  warded  off  many  shots  until  Moseley 


fooled  Davison  and  scored  St.  Andrew's  initial  point.  Gordon 
was  given  a  one-minute  penalty  for  tripping  but  the  Trinity  men 
were  unable  to  take  advantage  of  his  absence. 

Moseley  scored  two  more  goals  in  quick  succession.  The 
period  ended  with  the  score  unchanged  : 

S.A.C.,  3  ;    T.C.S.,  o. 

In  the  second  period  Gordon  secured  the  puck  from  the  face- 
oflf,  and,  after  a  spectacular  rush,  made  a  goal  for  St.  Andrew's. 
This  was  quickly  followed  by  a  score  by  Moseley.  Trinity  now 
directed  some  shots  against  the  S.A.C.  goal,  but  McLeod  seemd

On  a  pass  in  front  of  the  T.C.S.  goal,  Z^Ioseley  scored  another 
point  for  S.A.C.  Before  the  period  had  ended,  Gordon  scored  a 
goal  on  a  long  shot  from  the  wing,  making  the  score  : 

S.A.C,  7  ;    T.C.S. ,  o. 

Shortly  after  the  commencement  of  the  third  period,  Gordon 
scored  for  St.  Andrew's.  Then  Woodman  scored  Trinity's  only 
point  after  a  splendid  exhibition  of  stickhandling. 

Thompson,  Gordon  and  IMcIntosh  all  scored  points  for 
S.A.C,  and  the  game  ended  with  the  score  :

On  Tuesday  afternoon,  Feb.  20th,  we  met  the  Second  team 
from  U.C.C,  on  our  own  ice.      It  was  played  at  the  Arena,  and 

consisted  of  three  15-minute  periods,  marked  by  single  rushes  on 
both  sides. 

The  teams  lined  up  as  follows  ; 

S.A.C.  U.C.C. 

MacLeod  II Goal Gillespie(capt.) 

Davies L.  defence Mitchell 

Rolph  I R.  defence Beatty 

Gallagher  I Rover Macintosh 

Stonehouse Centre Ballentyne 

Syer L.  wing Wright 

Smith  I R.  wing Ross 

The  game  opened  with  a  rush  and  was  marked  by  individual 
play  and  a  good  deal  of  back-checking.  Neither  team  scored  this 
period.  MacLeod  II.  time  and  time  again  made  spectacular  stops 
and  saved  many  a  goal  for  St.  Andrew's. 

The  second  period  was  the  fastest  of  the  game.  St.  Andrew's 
played  much  better  combination.  After  one  minute  of  pla3% 
Syer  and  Smith  carried  the  rubber  up  the  ice.  Syer  registered  St. 
Andrew's  first  tally  in  a  scramble  in  front  of  the  net.  Seven  min- 
utes later  Davies  took  the  puck  up  and  shot  from  outside  the 
defence.  Gillespie  missed,  thus  making  S.A.C. 's  second  score. 
S.A.C,  2  ;    U.C.C,  o. 

The  third  period  began  very  listlessly.  Only  after  eleven 
minutes  of  play  was  there  any  score  made.  Wright  shot  from 
outside  the  defence  and  it  rolled  in. 

Wright  was  hurt  but  he  continued  the  game.  For  the  last 
four  minutes  U.C.C  made  a  final  effort  to  retrieve  themselves, 
but  the  bell  put  a  stop  to  their  efforts. 

Final  score  :     S.A.C,  2  ;    U.C.C,  i. 

Beatty  and  Macintosh  starred  for  U.C.C,  while  MacLeod's 
work  in  goal  and  Gallagher's  rushing  and  backchecking  were  the 
best  for  S.A.C. 

Harry  Watson  handled  the  game  to  the  satisfaction  of  all. 

The  return  game  was  played  at  the  Arena,  on  Upper  Canada's 
ice,  on  Feb.  27th.     U.C.C's  line-up  was  unchanged,  while  Rolph 



replaced  Gallagher  at  Rover.  Beath  was  back  on  the  defence 
with  Davies.  Gallagher  played  centre  ice  with  the  same  wings 
as  in  the  previous  game. 

After  two  minutes  of  play  Macintosh  carried  the  puck  up 
the  ice  and  scored  for  U.C.C.. 

The  period  was  characterized  by  lone  rushes.  MacLeod,  as 
usual,  was  the  best  man  on  the  ice.     (S.A.C.,  o  ;  U.C.C.,  i.) 

Ine  the  second  period  Macintosh  scored  again  after  ten 
minutes  of  play.  Beatty  was  laid  out,  but  continued.  (S.A.C., 
o  ;    U.C.C.,  2.) 

The  third  period  started  off  with  a  rush.  Ross  secured  from 
a  scramble  and  shot  into  an  open  goal. 

Final  score  :     S.A.C.,  o  ;   U.C.C.,  3. 

Boulter  handled  the  game  satisfactorily. 


Gallagher  played  fine  hockey  and  captained  his  team  well 
all  the  season. 

"Chuck"  MacLeod  turned  out  to  be  the  find  of  the  season 
and  played  a  splendid  game  in  the  nets.

Advertisements  of  every  description  announced  the  contest 
between  the  All-Stars  and  the  Upper  Sixth  and  everything  was  in 
readiness  for  the  great  encounter.  At  the  fateful  hour  a  goodly 
number  of  rooters  were  on  hand  at  the  Mutual  Street  slaughter- 
house, prepared  to  see  the  worst.  The  betting  was  four  shoelaces 
to  a  soup  sandwich  on  the  winner,  but  many  thought  the  other 
side  would  pull  out  ahead.  Two  twenty-five  minute  periods  were

The  attention  of  everyone  was  drawn  when  "Notany"  Wiser

like  our  bugle  band  on  a  wet  day.  Sufficient  lard  and  grease 
having  been  applied,  the  game  was  commenced. 

"Bignoise"  Moseley  got  away  quickly  and  hewed  and  hacked 
a  passage  clear  to  the  enemy's  goal,  but  his  shot  was  only  low 
enough  to  clear  out  a  few  sections  of  the  skylight,  and  "Leak" 
McLeod,  the  AU-Star  goal-tender,  was  enabled  to  dodge  it  success-

keeper and  upsetting  two  rows  of  chairs  was  able  to  get  his  bearings 
at  centre  ice,  but  his  efiforts  came  to  naught  when  "Drygin" 
Gordon  caromed  his  shillelah  from  the  ice  to  Beath's  head  and 
brought  forth  a  roar  of  thunder  and  a  shower  of  stars. 

"Ivapain"  Thompson  now  delayed  the  game  for  a  tinre  with 
a  hot-box  in  his  right  skate.  In  the  intermission  the  players  sat 
around  at  centre  ice  and  knitted.  "Iva's"  hot-box  having  sub- 
sided, the  contest  was  resumicd  with  renewed  vigour  and  a  few 
groans.  "Hesays"  Yuill  now  demonstrated  his  prowess  by 
anchoring  a  shot  in  the  opposing  goal.  Undismayed,  the  All- 
Stars  m.ade  a  mighty  onslaught  on  "Sieve"  Harstone,  who  lived 
up  to  his  name,  for  it  was  only  a  few  seconds  before  the  puck  leaked 
through  "Sieve"  for  the  "Star's"  first  tally. 

Two  more  goals  were  made  by  each  team  before  the  gong, 
and  then  an  adjournment  was  called  to  turn  the  heel  on  a  sock 
that   "Quelque"   Ross  was  knitting. 


Excitem.ent  waxed  furious  at  the  commencement  of  the 
second  period.  "Lottapep"  Rendell  rushed  from  his  own  goal 
and  banged  one  past  the  "Leak"  which  went  clear  through  the 
net  and  knocked  the  clock  down.  The  goal  judge  would  not  allow 
the  goal,  however,  as  he  said  he  could  not  see  the  puck  from  the 
lunch  counter.  "Boardem"  Home  made  his  presence  known  at 
this  critical  moment  and  said  he  thought  the  goal-judge  was  a  big 
huzzy,  to  which  the  judge  replied  (his  voice  quavering  with 
emotion   and   ginger  ale)    that    Home   was   most   ungentlemanly. 


Fears  that  the  speaker  would  scream  ended  the  argument  and  the 
contest  was  resumed. 

"Sink"  Rolph  combined  with  Gordon  in  a  neat  play  and 
placed  the  puck  in  such  a  position  that  "Leak"  McLeod  was 
enabled  to  dodge  it  easily.  The  game  continued  midst  lusty 
•applause  from  the  enthused  spectators  and  many  a  player  dusted 
the  ice  in  an  unladylike  manner.  "Rolluroun"  Mcintosh  was 
benched  for  cutting  the  corners  too  quickly  and  thereby  drenching 
the  scoreboard  with  a  cloud  of  snow.  Numerous  penalties  fol- 
low^ed  and  when  all  were  penalized  except  the  goal  tenders,  the 
game  was  called  for  lack  of  material.  All  players  embraced  the 
referee  and  repaired  to  the  dressing  room.  Joe  Taylor. 

The  hockey  team  has  had,  on  the  whole,  a  very  successful  season. 
We  have  not  had  as  many  matches  as  might  be  expected  in  such 
a  severe  winter.  This  was  owing,  in  the  first  place,  to  the  German 
measles  which  upset  our  arrangements  several  times,  and  in  the 
second  place  to  the  fact  that  it  is  not  at  all  easy  to  find  opponents 
who  are  willing  to  impose  an  age  limit  and  to  enforce  the  limitation. 
Experience  has,  however,  proved  that  the  playing  of  boys  of  more 
than  fifteen  years  is  seldom  desirable  in  lower  school  games,  and 
that  the  imposition  of  the  age  limit  avoids  all  unseemly  disputes 

as  to  eligibility. ■ 


Our  first  match  was  on  an  open-air  rink  against  Aura  Lee 
Juniors.  We  were  badly  beaten,  mainly  by  w^eight  and 
speed.     The  conditions  were  all  in  favour  of  our  opponents. 

The  most  satisfactory  fact  of  the  season  is  that,  playing  at 
the  Arena,  we  beat  both  T.C.S.  Juniors  and  Upper  Canada  Prep. 

The  match  against  T.C.S.  was  a  good  one  to  watch,  the  issue 
being  in  doubt  up  to  the  very  end.  The  whole  team  played 
well,  but  perhaps  Macdonald  was  a  little  better  than  the  others, 
and  for  a  new  recruit  Lewis  gave  an  excellent  exhibition  of  goal- 

Much  the  same  can  be  said  of  the  match  against  Upper 
Canada,  except  that  the  hockey  was  not  of  such  a  high  order  and 
the  game  was  not  so  interesting  to  watch. 

Scores:   S.A.C.,  i.     T.C.S.,  o. 
S.A.C.,  3.     U.C.C,  2. 

Findlay,  who  was  unanimously  elected  captain  at  the  begin- 
ning of  the  season,  was  unfortunately  unable  to  play  in  either  of 
the  matches.  He  did  a  lot  of  good  work  in  the  early  practices 
and  deserved  better  luck. 

Colours  were  gained  by  :  SkeafY,  Findlay  II.,  Macdonald, 
Carrick,  Lewis,  Nerlich  I.,  and  Lumbers. 


School   News 


Our  prospects  for  a  good  eleven  are  very  bright  indeed. 
Seven  old  colours  are  on  hand,  while  one  or  two  of  the  new  boys 
have  played  on  school  teams  before;  reinforced  by  those  who  are 
left  of  last  year's  Seconds,  they  should  go  to  form  a  strong  team. 
Both  of  last  year's  bowlers  are  with  us,  but  a  new  wicket-keeper 
must  be  found  among  the  material.  Unfortunately  we  have  been 
unable  to  secure  a  professional  to  instruct  us  in  the  finer  points  of 
the  game,  but  hope  to  find  one  before  the  season  commences. 


wJE  have  been  quite  free  of  any  serious  illness  during  the  term. 
'^  True,  the  German  measles  have  visited  us  and  caused  no 
little  interruption  to  the  course  of  both  studies  and  games.  Let 
us  be  thankful,  however,  that  in  conjunction  with  the  word 
"measles,"  the  adjective  German,  for  once,  does  not  stand  for 
"f  rightfulness." 

Under  the  presidency  of  Mr.  Maclnnis  the  Literary  Society 
has  had  a  successful  series  of  meetings.  Debates  took  place  on 
such  momentous  questions  as  :  "The  Day-boy's  Life  vs.  the 
Boarder's,"  and  "Conscription,"  and  a  Peace  Conference  was 
held  at  which  representatives  of  the  various  belligerents  stated 
their  minimum  terms.  These  will  be  communicated,  on  request, 
to  the  Chancelleries  of  Europe.  The  oratory  and  reading  contests 
are  postponed  until  next  term. 

The  wrestling  and  boxing  competitions  are  taking  place  as 
we  go  to  press,  so  we  are  unable  to  publish  the  names  of  the  win- 
ners in  this  issue. 

In  addition  to  the  special  subscription,  to  which  reference  is 
made  below,  a  very  praiseworthy  and  well  carried-out  scheme,  in 
which  Pollock  was  the  moving  spirit,  has  resulted  in  the  collection 


of  S28.50  for  the  Old  Boys'  Review  Fund.  This  was  the  pro- 
duction of  the  Cazette,'  a  typewritten  publication  of  ten  pages  of 
stories,  articles  in  prose  and  verse,  and  jokes.  The  expenses  of 
bringing  out  the  little  magazine  were  borne  by  Pollock  (editor), 
Munn  and  Black  L,  and  the  work  of  production  was  carried  out 
(thanks  to  Miss  Brooke's  help)  with  great  energy  and  success.  It 
was  sold  at  fifteen  cents  a  copy  and  the  proceeds  form  a  very  wel- 
come addition  to  the  Fund,  which  the  Review  acknowledges  with 
gratitude  and  appreciation. 

The   't'HREE   Hundred   Dollar  Campaign  to   Help  the   Old 
Boys'  Review  Fund 

Not  content  with  the  contributions  which  the  boys  are  raising 
from  their  pocket  money  to  help  the  Red  Cross,  some  of  our  lead- 
ing spirits,  headed  by  the  Head  Prefect,  conceived  the  idea,  during 
the  past  month,  of  starting  a  campaign  to  raise  S3  00  in  four  weeks 
to  aid  in  defraying  the  expense  of  sending  the  Review  to  the  Old 
Boys  on  service.  A  clock-dial,  to  indicate  progress,  was  mounted 
in  the  hall  and  the  legend,  "Watch  us  grow,"  was  soon  seen  to  be 
well  justified,  as  the  hand  moved  steadily  round  towards  the 
desired  figure.  As  we  go  to  press,  the  entire  amount  has  been 
raised  in  three  weeks'  time  (with  upwards  of  S25  to  spare,  due  to 
the  enterprise  of  Pollock  and  his  associates,  referred  to  above). 
The  editors  most  gratefully  acknowledge  the  assistance  thus 
given  by  the  boys  and  their  friends,  and  hope  that  the  present 
Review  will  be  deemed  worthy  of  their  generosity.  Appended 
are  the  names  of  contributors  to  the  fund  : —

IF  the  saying,  "Happy  is  the  country  that  has  no  history,"  be 
true,  the  Lower  School  must  be  put  down  this  term  as  one  of 
the  happiest  places  in  the  world.  And  indeed  we  have  pursued 
the  even  tenor  of  our  way  in  a  frame  of  mind  which  affords  more 
happiness  than  falls  to  the  lot  of  most  people  in  the  days  in  which 
we  live. 

However,  the  insistent  demands  of  the  Editor  of  the  Review 
compel  me  to  put  pen  to  paper  and  inform  all  whom  it  may  con- 
cern that  we  are  very  well,  thank  you. 

An  epidemic  of  German  measles  in  a  very  mild  form  has 
provided  a  rest  cure  for  those  who  have  needed  a  short  respite 
from  the  strenuous  life,  but  has  vanished  before  the  beginning  of 
examinations.  A  study  of  the  detention  book  seems  to  tell  us 
that  the  tempers  of  both  masters  and  boys  have  not  been  much 
affected  by  continuous  close  contact  during  a  long  term,  but  we 
are  nevertheless  looking  forward  to  the  Easter  vacation  with 
exceptional  eagerness.  Our  numbers  are  steadily  increasing,  and 
our  standard  of  work  is  steadily  improving. 

The  bad  condition  of  the  playing  fields  and  the  consequent 
impossibility  of  obtaining  the  usual  amount  of  fresh  air  has  brought 
on  an  epidemic  of  marbles.     The  complaint  spread  with  alarming 



rapidity  but  is  now  subsiding  and  will  probably  have  vanished 
before  Easter. 

The  Lower  School  night  at  the  Literary  Society  revealed  un- 
expected stores  of  musical,  oratorical,  and  dramatic  talent  among 
the  Juniors.  •^-  ^'^'  J-  ^-

Old  Boys'  News 


[Note. — As  will  be  seen,  the  following  extracts  are  mostly  of  a  different 
character  from  those  which  we  have  published  hitherto.  Such  an  immense  num- 
ber of  letters  have  come  to  the  Headmaster  and  others  that  it  is  impossible  to 
print  more  than  a  few  typical  passages  here  and  there.  The  present  School  will 
be  glad  to  have  so  much  evidence  of  appreciation  of  their  Christmas  gifts,  and  the 
Editors  of  the  Review  are  much  encouraged  by  the  numerous  expressions  of 
approval  and  gratitude  for  the  School  magazine.] 

(From  an  Airman.) — I  received  you  very  welcome  parcel  with  socks  and 
cigarettes,  and  am  sending  you  back  the  card  as  a  small  memento.  I  had  it  in 
my  cigarette  case  in  the  side-pocket  of  my  coat  one  day  when  I  was  having  a  scrap 
with  six  Huns,  and  I  got  a  bullet  through  my  clothes  and  partly  through  the 
cigarette  case,  and  it  went  through  the  card,  so  thought  you  might  like  to  have  it 
as  a  small  memento.  I  have  my  old  S.A.C.  football  sweater  here,  and  it  has  a 
few  bullet  holes  in  it  that  did  not  come  there  from  Rugby.  It  is  wonderful  how 
many  fellows  here  recognize  it  when  they  spot  it  on  me.  All  the  Old  Boys  I  have  have  the  old  S.A.C.  fighting  spirit  the  same  as  they  had  on  the  football  field 
or  on  the  hockey  rink.

It  was  ver\^  nice  to  feel  that  one  had  not  been  forgotten  by  his  schoolmates, 
as  any  S.A.C.  boy  is  to  me,  even  though  it  is  six  years  since  I  was  under  your  care- 
The  parcel  of  socks  was  received  in  perfect  condition.  Woollen  goods  of  such  a 
description  are  very  acceptable  for  winter  work  in  the  North  Sea,  as  they  certainly 
get  plenty  of  "wind  and  wave"  up  here,  but  it's  all  in  a  day's  work. 

As  usual  I  was  a  close  follower  of  the  Rugby  season.  It's  a  funny  thing,  al- 
though perhaps  funny  is  not  the  right  word,  how  school  loyalty  sticks  to  one.  I 
had  that  game  on  my  mind  all  through  patrol  that  day.  School  loyalty  is  a 
standard  for  all  other  lovaltv. 

In  every  conceivable  place  we  meet  Old  Boys  and  on  more  than  one  cccasion 
have  I  joined  in  "Fight  the  Good  Fight"  for  old  time's  sake. 


One  meets  Old  Boys  from  St.  Andrew's  wherever  he  goes.  I  was  greatly 
pleased  to  get  the  last  copy  of  the  Review,  and  to  see  such  a  splendid  Roll  of 



The  Review  arrived  O.K.  a  week  or  so  ago  and  it  certainly  was  very  inter- 
esting. It  looks  to  me  as  though  the  war  hasn't  hurt  the  school  much  when  it  can 
turn  out  such  teams  that  are  able  to  make  victories  for  old  S.A.C,  as  recorded  in 

the  Review. 

*  *  *  *  *  * 

Just  a  line  to  tell  you  how  much  I  appreciated  the  Christmas  present  from 
the  boys,  and  also  the  Review.  I  enjoyed  reading  it  much  better  than  when  I 
was  attending  the  College  myself. 


I  was  certainly  glad  to  get  a  parcel  and  copy  of  the  Review  from  S.A.C.  and 
feel  that  you  remembered  me.  I  have  met  a  lot  of  old  S.A.C.  boys  over  here. 
One  runs  into  them  everywhere.  There  are  six  of  us  with  this  reserve  battahon, 
waiting  an  opportunity  to  get  over  to  France, — Geo.  Leishman,  "Hank"  Kent, 
Billie  Munro,  Ned  Hanlan,  Wilf  Swan  and  myself.  Everj-  once  in  a  while  we 
gather  together  in  a  room  and  talk  about  S.A.C.  fellows.  Occasionally  we  give  a 
Hoot  !  Mon  !  Hoot  !  to  stir  things  up.  Billie  Munro  left  yesterday  for  the 
92nd.     Said  he  wouldn't  be  happy  until  he  got  into  kilts  again.

I  am  constantly  thinking  of  the  old  school  and  frequently  come  across  some 

of  my  "used  to  be  classmates,"  now  "Comrades  in  Arms." 


I  want  to  thank  you  for  the  Christmas  number  of  the  Review  which  has  just 
reached  me.  It  feels  mighty  good  to  be  remembered  by  the  boys  at  home,  and 
the  thought  that  we  are  not  forgotten  by  the  old  school,  helps  to  make  this  life 
w^orth  while.  I  bump  into  College  Old  Boys  most  every  part  of  the  line  and 
reunions  or  dinners  held  here  are  beyond  count. 


It  sure  is  a  treat  to  be  bumping  into  the  Old  Boys  all  over  the  country-,  and 
when  two  do  get  together,  there  is  generally  more  scandal  and  gossip  exchanged 
tha;i  the  Sunshine  Circle  could  ever  think  of. 


I  was  very  much  pleased  to-day  to  receive  the  parcel  and  Review  which 
were  sent  to  me.  It  was  very  interesting  to  me  to  read  of  the  doings  of  the  Old 
Boys  whom  I  used  to  know. 

There  is  no  doubt  whatever  that  St.  Andrew's  College  has  done  its  part  in 

contributing  to  the  Canadian  Overseas  Forces. 


It  is  Andy's  spirit  budding  out  and  with  "Andy's  spirit  back  of  us  we're  sure 
to  win  the  day." 


I  am  continually  being  reminded  of  S.A.C,  seeing  so  many  familiar  faces 
out  here,  then  I  look  forward  to  the  Review,  which  is  sent  out  to  me  and  is 
alw-ays  so  interesting. 

In  a  few  days  I  expect  to  go  on  leave  to  Blighty.  Having  been  out  here  for 
ten  months,  I  can  assure  you  I  will  have  a  good  time. 

I  read  with  great  sorrow  the  names  of  so  many  of  the  Old  Boys  who  have 
made  the  supreme  sacrifice.  On  the  other  hand  I  feel  proud  of  having  been  as- 
sociated with  such  fellows  in  my  school  days. 


I  would  like  to  give  you  a  description  of  our  work,  but  that  of  course  is  im- 
possible. The  motto  of  the  good  old  Crimson  and  White  brought  back  pleasant 
memories  and  I  think  the  meaning  has  taken  on  a  sterner  aspect  for  most  of  us  in 

these  strenuous  times. 


It  is  very  good,  indeed,  to  be  remem'oered  by  the  old  school,  and  it  is  often 
to  me  a  very  gratifying  thought  to  be  able  to  realize  that  I  yet  have  the  honour 
of  belonging,  in  some  way,  to  St.  Andrew's  College,  and  it  will  be  one  of  my 



greatest  pleasures,  when  we  all  get  home,  to  visit  the  school  and  hope  that  some 
of  the  old  faces  will  be  there. 

Received  the  Christmas  parcel  from  the  boys  of  the  College  and  thought  I 
would  like  to  send  my  best  wishes  to  them.  The  parcel  arrived  when  I  was  in 
the  hospital.  Fritz  sent  a  bullet  through  my  left  shoulder.  Arrived  at  the  con- 
valescent home  a  few  days  ago,  but  will  soon  be  returning  to  the  front  to  get  my 
own  revenge  back  from  the  Boche. 

It  is  indeed  very  encouraging  to  know  that  while  one  is  here  "doing  his  best," 
the  good  Old  Boys  of  S.A.C.  are  thinking  of  how  they  can  make  us  cheerful  on 
such  a  day  as  Christmas.  It  is  a  day  when  one's  thoughts  naturally  turn,  more 
so  than  any  other,  to  all  those  we  hold  dear  at  home,  and  it  is  these  thoughtful 
gifts  that  makes  one  feel  you  are  not  alone  in  the  world.  I  have  come  in  contact 
with  so  many  of  the  Old  Boys  here,  that  you  would  imagine  you  were  in  some 
training  camp  at  Niagara,  or  elsewhere,  and  at  all  times  when  our  friend  "Fritz"

will  allow  us,  the  topic  of  conversation  goes  back  to  the  old  days  at  College,  and 
all  we  did  do,  and  did  not  do. 

*  *  *  *  *  :^ 

The  St.  Andrew's  Reviews  have  been  very  highly  appreciated  by  me  and, 

with  great  pride,  I  have  shown  them  to  the  members  of  our  mess. 


It  helps  a  whole  lot  in  this  game  to  be  remembered  by  those  at  home. 


It  grieved  me  very  much,  indeed,  to  read  of  the  many  splendid  fellows  who 
were  at  College  with  me,  w'ho  have  been  either  killed  or  wounded  out  here,  especially 
"Mike"  Malone  and  "Geordie"  Campbell,  two  finer  chaps  I  never  hope  to  meet. 


I  have  just  finished  reading  the  Christmas  number  of  the  Review,  so  thought 
I  would  write  and  let  you  know  what  I  thought  of  it.  I  enjoyed  it  immensely 
and  it  certainly  makes  an  excellent  Christmas  gift  for  the  Old  Boys  at  the  front, 
as  it  gives  one  an  idea  where  the  rest  of  the  vS.A.C.  boys  are  and  enables  us  to  hunt 
a  few  of  them  up  now  and  again. 

The  other  day  I  had  a  touch  of  influenza  and  when  the  M.O.  came  in  to  see 
me,  I  was  reading  the  Review.  He  seemed  quite  surprised  and  said  he  was  an 
Old  St.  Andrew's  Boy  himself,  leaving  the  College  in  IQ03. 

Had  the  privilege  of  visiting  the  British  Grand  Fleet  in  the  North  Sea  and 
watching  them  at  target  practise.  I  wish  I  was  a  journalist  and  then  I  could  write 
you  an  account  of  my  trip  up  there.  It  is  marvellous,  the  efficiency  they  have  in 
the  Navy  along  all  lines,  as  seamanship,  gunnery,  etc.  I  happened  to  be  billeted 
to  the  H.M.S.  "Canada,"  and  being  a  Canadian  boy  they  could  not  do  enough 
for  me.  A  finer  lot  of  officers  you  could  not  meet.  For  two  daj^s  I  was  on  the 
H.M.S.  "Marlborough,"  the  battleship  which  was  torpedoed  during  the  Jutland 
fight,  but  managed  to  get  back  home  under  her  own  steam,  due  to  good  handling. 

It  is  real  Christmas  weather  we  are  having  now.  Everything  is  frozen  up 
and  the  ground  white  with  frost.  It's  suitable  weather  for  working,  but  not  for 
my  line  of  business.  It's  almost  impossible  to  do  any  patrolling.  We  spend  our 
days  in  trying  to  find  out  what  the  Boche  is  doing.  It  is  very  interesting  and  at 
times  somewhat  exciting. 

To-morrow  we  go  back  to  rest,  and  no  one  is  sorry.     It  means  a  haircut,  bath, 
and  a  few  more  touches  of  civilization.     I  realize  now  what  luxury  we  lived  in  at 
St.  Andrew's.     A  bath  every  morning  !     It  doesn't  seem  possible. 

In  the  meantime,  let  me  enroll  myself  as  one  more  soldier  who  is  proud  and 
happy  to  have  cheered  (if  not  fought)  for  "Andy"  in  the  days  before  the  war. 

The  "watch  dog"  game  that  we  play  in  the  Channel  is  cold  and  monotonous 
with  only  an  occasional  bit  of  excitement. 


I  have  met  so  many  S.A.C.  men  in  France,  from  time  to  time.  The  College 
seems  to  have  been  a  great  breeding  ground  for  the  Army,  and  without  exception 
they  are  all  upholding  the  old  standards  ground  in  at  St.  Andrew's,  of  constant 
endeavour  and  fair  play. 


We  have  a  great  bunch  of  Old  Boys  in  France,  haven't  we  ?  IVIurray  Gal- 
braith  is  doing  fine  work  and  it  is  easy  to  imagine  him  going  straight  for  any 
number  of  German  aeroplanes.     "I  have  some  traditions  to  live  up  to,"  is  what 

strikes  me  on  reading  the  Review. 


Sunday  afternoon,  and  the  first  time  it's  really  felt  like  Sunday  for  many 
moons,  the  reason  being  that  we  are  out  of  the  line  for  a  rest. 

The  Battalion  has  its  billets  in  a  small  mining  town  and  I  think  they  are, 
without  doubt,  the  best  we've  ever  been  in.  The  homes  are  very  comfortable 
and  they  keep  their  places  clean,  which  is  a  whole  lot  more  than  can  be  said  of 
some  places  we've  been  in. 

The  men  are  enjoying  the  rest  as  much  as  the  officers.  Parades  are  over 
by  four  o'clock  and  they  have  the  rest  of  the  day  to  themselves.  Each  afternoon 
there  are  football  games,  boxing  bouts  and  tug-of-war,  from  away  back  here. 

This  morning  there  was  a  brigade  church  parade.  The  padre,  Capt.  Kil- 
patrick,  had  charge  of  the  service  part  of  it.  He  has  another  service  this  after- 
noon and  one  again  this  evening.     He  is  the  prize  padre  of  the  whole  division  and 

is  very  much  in  demand. 


I  was  glad  to  receive  the'  Review  yesterday  and  spent  the  whole  afternoon  in 
careful  study  of  its  contents.  I  was  surprised,  as  well  as  pleased,  to  find  how- 
much  there  was  of  interest  to  the  Old  Boys.  We  have  two  Ridley,  three  T.C.S., 
two  U.C.C.,  and  three  from  College  still  left  with  us  in  the  mess,  and  they  were 
all  glad  to  get  some  Prep,  school  news. 

The  friends  in  Canada  have  sent  me  several  parcels  and  I  have  been  very 
fortunate  in  being  remembered,  but  there  is  one  parcel  that  stands  the  highest 
in  my  estimation  and  that  is  the  one  from  the  old  school,  and  I  know  that  all  the 
Old  Boys  will  agree  with  me. 

When  I  was  a  wee  codger  in  the  Lower  School,  I  can  well  remember  the 

financial  difficulties  we  were  all  in  and  the  fact  that  the  present  boys  deprived 

themselves  in  order  to  make  things  brighter  for  the  overseas  Old  Boys,  will  long 

stay  in  my  memor>^ 


The  First  Division  is  very  optimistic  regarding  peace,  and  if  one  were  to 
believe  all  that  is  heard,  Fritz  is  due  to  return  to  civil  life  in  about  three  months' 
time.  A  Division  that  just  came  out  of  the  Somme  to  relieve  us  does  not  seem  so 
optimistic,  however. 

Socks  are  articles  which  are  always  useful  as  it  is  often  impossible  to  have 
any  washing  done.  Sometimes  we  do  not  have  a  change  for  a  month  at  a  time, 
and  changes  are  required  frequently  to  prevent  "trench  foot."  Also,  if  an  officer 
has  more  socks  than  he  needs,  he  can  always  find  men  who  are  in  need  of  them. 

At  present  the  Division  which  my  Battalion  is  in,  is  having  a  divisional  rest, 
that  is,  the  Division  is  a  considerable  distance  behind  the  line.  This  Division  has 
not  had  a  rest  for  a  year.  It  is  a  Division  of  the  old  regular  army  and  has  seen  a 
great  deal  of  heavy  fighting.  Since  I  have  been  in  it,  we  have  a  had  long  period 
on  the  Somme  during  the  summer  months. 

A  divisional  rest  does  not  mean  that  we  have  nothing  to  do, — we  are  hard  at 
it  all  the  time.     At  times  it  is  very  much  like  school  as  we  are  never  finished  learn- 


ing.     At  present  I  am  on  a  divisional  course,  which  lasts  about  three  weeks.     We 

start  in  at  8.30  and  continue  until  7.00  or  7.30  in  the  evening,  Saturdays  included. 

We  have  dozens  of  subjects  as  an  infantry  officer  has  to  be  among  other  things,  a 

gas  expert,  engineer,  etc.,  etc. 

^i  if  *  t  *  * 

I  am  at  a  large  and  important  Naval  Base  for  the  Grand  Fleet,  and  have 
become  familiar  with  most  of  the  important  ships.  They  are  to  me  marvels  of 
construction  and  form  a  most  impressive  sight  at  sea,  with  alert  destroyers  guard- 
ing the  big  ships  from  possible  submarine  attack. 

The  crews  are  kept  in  good  physical  condition  always,  as  they  have  regular 
exercises  on  deck  each  day,  and  are  sent  on  route  marches  ashore. 

Our  small  boats  look  most  Insignificant  in  this  immense  natural  harbour  in 
which  a  large  fleet  is  almost  constantly  at  anchor,  lying  with  steam  up  ready  to 
take  the  sea  at  short  notice. 

We  have  been  in  harbour  quite  a  bit  lately,  being  fitted  with  new  contrivances 
that  will  enlarge  our  usefulness,  and  I  must, say  that  the  "watchful  waiting"  is 
most  trying  to  the  patience.  However,  the  winter  storms  make  it  most  uncom- 
fortable for  the  small  boats  at  sea,  and  as  the  submarine  situation  is  well  in  hand 
about  here,  we  are  often  only  too  glad  to  be  in  harbour. 

It  is  most  difficult  to  obtain  leave  and  as  there  is  little  to  do  in  the  way  of 
amusement  ashore,  it  gets  a  bit  monotonous  at  times. 

There  are of  these  M.L.'s  here  and  the  officers  are  quite  a  sociable  lot. 

Four  of  us  are  Canadians,  and  I  must  say  we  have  been  well  received. 

I  have  been  in  the  hospital  for  about  a  week,  oising  to  being  vaccinated. 
To-day  I  am  feeling  fine  but  the  Fleet  surgeon  does  not  think  so  as  I  have  to  stay 
in  bed  until  he  says  the  word.  I  was  having  a  quiet  snooze  when  all  of  a  sudden 
someone  I  thought  was  trying  to  give  a  shower  bath  of  glass,  as  a  football  came 
flying  through  the  window.  I  finally  got  to  sleep  again  and  I  heard  the  welcome 
words,  ''Wake  up,"  "Wake  up."  I  thought  it  must  be  the  Fleet  surgeon,  and 
sort  of  mumbled  "Yes,  sir,"  and  to  my  great  surprise  it  was  Ewart  Whitaker.  We 
had  a  great  chat  about  school  and  everj^thing,  just  like  two  old  women,  only  worse. 
He  said  he  came  to  see  how  much  detention  I  had.  I  wish  I  was  back  where  they 
soak  detention. 

The  Review  is  excellent.  I  was  pretty  sick  when  it  was  brought  to  me,  but 
I  felt  a  lot  brighter  after  looking  through  it. 

I  will  tr\'  and  do  my  best  for  the  old  school. 


I  also  take  this  opportunitj-  to  thank  you  for  the  Reviews,  they  are  very 

welcome  and  go  a  long  way  in  making  things  go  easier  out  here.     It  is  also  a  great 

pleasure  to  be  able  to  keep  in  touch  with  the  College,  the  Review  alone  making 

that  possible. 


I  have  met  quite  a  number  of  Old  Boys  in  London,  some  of  whom  I  had  not 
seen  since  I  left  the  school,  and  it  does  seem  odd  to  meet  them  so  far  from  home. 


I  was  also  pleased  to  receive  the  Review.  It  was  full  of  interesting  infor- 
mation about  the  Old  Boys.  I  think  it  is  larger  and  more  interesting  than  when 
I  was  there. 


I  was  most  agreeably  surprised  the  other  day  to  receive  (in  Mesopotamia) 
a  Christmas  parcel  from  the  S.A.C.  boys.  I  think  it  a  splendid  idea  and  all  the 
Old  Boys  will  appreciate  it  very  much  indeed.  I  know  away  out  here  when  I  get 
a  letter  via  Japan,  one  week  quicker  than  by  England,  a  parcel  from  Canada 
cheers  one  up  a  great  deal  and  makes  you  feel  that  you  are  not  so  far  away  after  all. 

I  feel  sure  that  all  the  S.A.C.  boys,  or  at  least  a  very  large  proportion  of  them, 
have  acquitted  themselves  like  men,  living  up  to  the  old  school  motto.  We  will 
have  received  our  share  of  military  awards,  and  also  there  will  be  a  number  of 
chaps  who  will  not  see  their  names  on  the  S.A.C.  roll  of  honour.  All  honour  to 
them.     They  have  left  a  very  high  standard  for  the  school  to  live  up  to, 

I  am  doing  bacteriological  work  with  this  unit  and  am  kept  very  busy  indeed. 
There  are  any  number  of  sick  in  this  country,  enteric,  cholera,  malaria,  etc.,  during 
the  hot  months.  Altogether  it  is  a  horrible  country  to  carry  on  a  war  in,  and  the 
probabilities  are  that  there  will  be  very  little  more  actual  fighting  out  here.  We 
hold  the  oil  fields  and  there  is  very  little  to  gain  by  pushing  on. 

I  hope  that  before  very  long  I  shall  be  able  to  meet  a  number  of  the  S.A.C. 
boys  at  the  annual  dinner.

Harvey  Taylor  Beecroft  was  born  on  September  21st, 
1892.  He  attended  St.  Andrew's  College  in  1912-1913,  matricu- 
lating at  the  University  of  Toronto  in  June,  19 13.  In  the  autumn 
of  19 1 2  he  played  on  the  back  division  of  the  First  Football  Team. 
After  leaving  College  he  went  to  the  University  of  Alberta.  In 
September,  1915,  he  joined  the  third  University  Co.  (reinforce- 
ments to  the  Princess  Patricias).  Later  he  obtained  his  commis- 
sion and  was  transferred  to  the  Machine  Gun  Section,  and  sub- 
sequently he  joined  the  Artillery.  In  September,  19 16,  he  was 
killed  in  action.  He  was  a  popular  boy  at  school  and  earned  the 
esteem  of  Masters  and  boys,  because  of  his  uniform  unselfisness 
and  quiet  courtesy. 

LoRXE  Emerson  Cunningham  was  born  on  Jan.  4th.  1891, 
and  was  the  son  of  Dr.  E.  Cunningham  of  Parry  Sound.  He  at- 
tended the  Lower  School  for  one  year,  leaving  in  Dec,  1901.  He 
went  overseas  in  August,  19 15,  and  was  drafted  into  the  13th 
Royal  Canadian  Highlanders  of  Montreal.  On  June  13th,  19 16, 
he  was  reported  missing  by  his  own  Battalion  at  the  taking  of 
Mount  Sorel.  However,  he  was  picked  up  and  buried  by  the  15th 
Battalion,  one  of  whose  stretcher  bearers  recognized  him  and 
wrote  to  inform  his  father.  We  remember  Cunningham  in  his 
early  schooldays  as  a  lovable  little  chap. 

Gregory  Vincent  Nelson  was  born  in  Toronto  on  April 
23rd,  1895.  He  entered  St.  Andrew's  College  in  the  autumn  of 
1908  and  left  to  enter  business  in  June,  19 11.  His  interest  in 
athletics  was  always  keen,  both  in  school  and  in  later  days.  He 
became  an  expert  goalkeeper.  In  his  work  after  leaving  school, 
Nelson  had  attained  unusual  success  for  one  of  his  age.  In  the 
spring  of  19 15  he  joined  the  83rd  Battahon,  and  qualified  for  his 
commission  at  the  Niagara  Camp  the  same  summer.  Shortly 
afterwards  he  went  over  to  England  in  charge  of  a  draft.  After 
further  training  at  Shorncliffe  he  was  appointed  to  the  i8th  Bat- 
talion, with  which  unit  he  saw  heavy  service.  He  received  his 
captaincy  on  the  field  and  soon  afterwards  was  appointed  acting- 
major  at  the  early  age  of  twenty-one.  "  His  bravery  and  dash  in 
action  did  much  to  win  his  rapid  promotion."  On  March  sth, 
191 7,  a  cable  was  received  announcing  his  death  in  action  in  the 
offensive  on  the  Ancre.     He  will  long  be  remembered  with  affec- 



tion  by  those  who  knew  him  as  boy  and  man,  and  the  news  of  his 
death  will  mean  real  sorrow  for  many  of  his  school  friends. 


No  particulars  have  been  received  by  us  as  to  how  Lieut. 
"Cubby"  Coats  worth  got  his  Cross.  The  explanation  is  prob- 
ably to  be  found  in  a  letter  written  by  a  member  of  his  Company, 
who  writes  :  "The  Judge's  son  is  .  .  .  about  one  of  the  quietest 
and  most  modest  fellows  that  I  have  ever  known.  He  does  things 
and  never  says  anything  about  it.  For  instance,  he  had  a  party 
out  for  twenty-two  hours  after  the  battle  of  Courcelette  getting 
out  the  wounded,  under  shell-fire.  He  never  said  anything  about 
it,  but  the  general  sent  a  letter  to  his  battalion,  thanking  the 
officers  and  men  for  their  services.  That's  the  sort  of  man  the 
Judge's  son  is  and  the  boys  think  the  world  of  him." 

Captain  Donald  T.  Eraser  also  won  the  Military  Cross  for 
carrying  off  wounded  during  the  battle  of  the  Somme,  We  did 
not  know  of  this  award  in  time  for  last  issue. 

Flight  Lieut.  Murray  Galbraith  was  awarded  a  Bar  to 
his  D.S.  Cross  in  February  for  conspicuous  gallantr}-.  "On  Nov. 
23,  19 16,  he  attacked  single-handed  a  formation  of  six  hostile  air 
craft,  no  other  allied  machines  being  near.  One  hostile  machine 
was  shot  down,  a  second  was  driven  down,  under  control,  and  the 
remaining  four  machines  then  gave  up  the  fight  and  landed.  In 
several  other  combats  in  the  air  Flight  Lieut.  Galbraith  has  dis- 
played exceptional  gallantry,  particularly  on  Nov.  10  and  16,  19 16, 
on  each  of  which  days  he  successfully  engaged  and  shot  down  an 
enemy  machine."     (The  Weekly  Times,  Feb.  23.) 

Lieut.  Charles  S.  L.  Hertzberg,  whose  older  brother. 
Major  H.  F.  H.  Hertzberg,  won  the  Military  Cross  last  year,  has 
been  awarded  the  same  distinction  "for  digging  trenches  under 
heavy  fire  and  establishing  a  strong  point  in  an  exposed  flank." 
He  has  since  been  reported  "seriously  wounded,"  but  we  are  glad 
to  hear  that  he  is  recovering. 

Lieut.  Arthur  T.  Lowes  gained  the  Military  Cross  in  De- 
cember, for  gallantry  in  leading  reinforcements  across  the  open, 
presumably  at  one  of  the  Somme  battles.
