HEADMASTER'S ADDRESS 




I am always pleased to write a short introduction to the Georgian. Each year a dedicated group of stu- 
dents accepts the task of gathering together articles and photos of interest to their peers, parents and Old 
Boys. This is not an easy task. Articles and offers of assistance are often forgotten about. Each year, how- 
ever, a publication which mirrors the life of the school is produced. I thank the members of the Yearbook 
Staff who have spent many hours assembling this year's issue. 

At the annual Canadian Headmaster's Association meeting the topic of standards was much in evidence. 
The importance of holding the line in support of social standards, sport's standards, and academic stand- 
ards was stressed. After dealing with boys and young men for almost forty years 1 can say that they appre- 
ciate standards that are fairly and clearly defined and applied. The school that relaxes its standards is in a 
way being unfair to its students. Boys need direction. As they mature they will learn to respect controls 
and sympathetic guidance. Society is in great need of leaders who are aware of the value of self-discipline, 
self-respect and courage. As you learn to accept standards in your youth, and to mould a firm character 
through attention to those things that really count, so too will you earn the right to be a truly great leader. 
1 urge all students of St. George's to guard well that which has been committed to you. 

Your friend and Headmastei

JUNIOR SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S 
ADDRESS 

I w.is introduced to a quotation attributed to 1 >i . Samuel [ohnson, when I was I 5 years old. upon re- 
ceiving an essay from my teacher oi English. On it was written in a< companiment with rather a pitiful grade 
"What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure", and he might well have added "and 
without reward! ". I am reminded of this only because of the great effort I find necessary in order to pro- 
duce annually this short message. I should say that il I was to be treated as are my students who fail to meet 
deadlines 1 would find myself annually on early report. 

Activities in the Lower School have continued apace as these pages will attest, many of last years suc- 
cesses have been repeated. For example; the visits to the Excelsioi Lire Concerts at Massey Hall; Ski I >.. 
Seneca; the lunior School plays now involving tirade 4. 5 as well as 7; Norval; the Contact Theatre visit: the 
Swimming Gala etc. We have also seen the introduction of some new activities, particularly in the field 
Art where Mrs. Grieve has taken out Grade 7 Art group to two exhibitions, the R.O.M.. and a gallery, the 
McMichael Collection at Kleinberg. and to Harbour front. This widening aspect of out programme has been 
well received and its resounding success will ensure its permanence in the curriculum. 

The sports programme under the direction of Messers McMaster and Dunkley has continued to supply- 
varied physical activities to all boys in the lower school on both school and house teams. 1 was privileged to 
accompany Mr. Smith and his B team on their visit to Ottawa to take part in the Indep-Schools U-B tourna- 
ment. Teams from Vancouver. Ottawa, Halifax. Winnipeg. Hamilton. St. Catharines, and Toronto took part, 
and though we did not make the play oils the team gave good account of itself on the field, and was a 
credit to St. George's College off the field. 

1 cannot put pen to paper and write about school activities without some mention of the ladies' Ouild 
and their tremendous support of many Lower School activities. I would like to pay tribute to their kindness 
in making a uenerous donation ot s 1 . 1 00.00 towards the particular swinn 1 amine expenses, enabl- 

ing us to offer swimming on a year round basis. The hard work carried out by Mrs. Knight and her ladi 
the annual Rummage Sale was the main reason for this generous donation. 

Writing of wot k and donations. I want to commend all those walkers, 95 pet cent of the Lower School 
who took part in the Canterbury Cathedral Restoration Fund Walkathon, and raised 12,875.00. We were 
thanked tor our efforts bv Mr. Roland Michener who made ,1 visit to the school and addressed the 1 owei 
Si hool at a special assembly. 

I will close this message as I began with Dr. [ohnson who said that, "at 77 it is time to be in earnest" and 
hope that the boys of the Lower school will paraphrase that great mans remark to "in '77 it is time I 
earnest!

DESIRE 

Free, the word of life, 
Here I sit chained to 



the pains of existence. 
Oh, Nightingale, 
So free in your ease of 
flight, 
Care not! 
Sing while I weep, 
For my life is not yours. 
D. MacLennan 13. 



GARDENS OF BABYLON 

As the winter snow melts, 
Mountain streams run full. 
Life, gardens full of blossoms, 
Shining in the sun and covering 
a spectrum with their vividness. 
J. Wynn 12. 



APOLLO'S SOLILOQUY 

Winter's first snow fell silently 
filling the air with these finely 
shaped spirits and ending their fall 
from the silv'ry-gray limits tall. 

There was a man who looked so hig 
to catch the Muse with his bold eye 
and from cold ice did carve a shape 
of one soft spirit that sealed his fate. 

Winter's first snow fell on his face 
melted at first and then in grace 
the soft spirits melted no more 
and the pale cocoon did trap this war

THE FIRE 

The red and yellow tongues of devil- 
lire are now licking and flicking into the 
hot night air. I can see another bright 
red engine careening around the curve 
and coming to an abrupt halt bv the 
stacks of corpses. The wailing agon y 
of the injured fills my horrified ears ^ 
I stand aghast against the wall and wat< h 
as a burning man plummets from the 
sixth floor. 

Another fire engine speeds onto the 
scene, holding the spectators in awe. 
The black suited firemen scramble 
from the trucks and start unravelling 
the heavy brown hoses. 

A burnt man gasps and chokes as 
he stumbles and trips out oi the door 
and tails unto the road. 

I stand close to the wall watching 
the scene hundreds .i| feet below. Then 
I see .1 flash ol colour, intense heat. 

I .mi flying in the air. The last flit I 
ol life fade away, and I land.

Maladie canadienne 

J'ai une amie tres pres de mois que a un grave probleme. Bien qu'elle ne 
soit pas en sante parfaite, elle va mieux que beaucoup de ses prochains. 
Mais elle a mal au ventre depuis quelques annees, et maintenant son nouveau 
medecin, un fou qui n'a aucun droit de manier un scalpel, veut la dissequer 
et sortir toutes ses entrailles. Quoi faire? ! ! 

Mon amie? — c'est le Canada, notre cher pays. Et ce boucher fou s'appelle, 
naturellement, Rene Levesque, premier ministre du Quebec, leader du Parti 
Quebecois, et partisan du separatisme pour le Quebec. Voila L'idiotie de 
ce (docteur) audace et presomptueux: apres avoir gagne quarante pourcent 
seulement du vote populaire dans l'election d'octobre dernier, il croit que, 
lors du referendum, les Quebecois voteront, d'une maniere retentissante, 
se separer du Canada. Et. Levesque parle comme si le separatisme est 
imminente, comme s'il est dans l'avenir proche. Voila un exemple de ces 
niaiseries dans son discours au Club Economique de New York. 

Il parle de cette inevitabilite, mais a-t-il demande l'avis sur le separatisme 
de tous au Canada? Bien sur que non. C'est comme un chirurgien qui opere 
sans consulter des rayons X! ! ! 

Levesque. comment a-t-il pris les renes du pouvoir? C'etait une election 
pour un gouvernement au Quebec, pas pour le separatisme. La victoire du 
Parti Quebecois n'indique point que tous les gens dans la province revent 
a l'independance. C'etait le cas que les Liberaux perdaient plutot que le 
Parti Quebecois gagnait. Levesque, lui-meme, etait surprise d'avoir gagne. 

Franchement, le separatisme serait la ruine de la confederation du 
Canada. Cette action couperait le pays en deux parties. Divisees comme ca, 
ces parties deviendraient de plus en plus isolees; ensuite. les (Maritimers) 
pousseraient des cris pour leur propere independance. Le Canada cesserait 
d'exister. Il faut done que tous les citoyens du Canada fassent partie au 
scrutin, s'il aura lieu. Quoiqu'un grand nombre de Canadiens, je pense, ait 
de la compassion pour les Canadiens-Francais et pour leur cause, a mon avis, 

ils ne diraient jamais que le separatisme soit la solution. 

Cependant, Monsieur Levesque continue a recrire l'histoire due Quebec, 
a recrier les issues de sa campagne (il avait fait campagne en attaquant la 
corruption du regime de Bourassa, mais a New York il a atteste qu'il 
faisait campagne pour le separatisme et pour le separatisme seulement); 
il continue a recrire les promesses de son parti, et a recrire Le nombre 
d'adherents du separatisme. 

En somme, mon amie pourrait survivre (j'espere que oui), ou elle 
pourrait en mourir. En tout cas, il faut que nous, les Canadiens, poursuivions 
Levesque, le medecin fou, en justice, pour la negligence medicale. Qu'est-ce

HOEM WITH NOTITI I 

The world's largest annual fail arrives annually in the steam) stiikv 

summer's end. 
Bright lights, fast rides, candy lloss and fifty cent thrills. 
Whirling twilling neon lights making money into the night, people walking. 

people talking, gawking at the freaks. 

High above the freak show in the dark ol night I can see the gawkers and the 

gawked at; 
From here it can all be seen but the details are blurred. 
Whirling twirling neon lights always flashing nevei stopping, obscuring 

the picture. 

But the image is cleat: (he screams shiill and the crowds intense as a girl 

sits on the curb 
With neon eves glaring at the freaks. 

In the midst ot the asphalt playground sits an oasis, a field of green, bright 

green, greener than green. 
Surrounded bv a sea of blue seats from which the people can watch the show. 
But the field is take and the sea uncomfortable as the bright lights glare 

and time runs on 
And the sea empties and the lights go out. 

But outside the bright lights are glaring, blaring and spinning still. 

No one told the girl with neon eyes that the show doesn't end when the lights 

go out. 

Another six hours ot neon lights, colours whirling and twirling inside her head. 

It isn't tun anymore with stickv face and hands trom the sticky heat and 

desperate sweat. 
With neon eyes staring into the lights. 

So sits the girl with the candy floss brain in the playground by the lake. 
On the bridge to the shore ovei looking the boulevard, the city and the CN 

and Shell towers, 
Wlin ling twirling neon lights, never stopping, always Hashing through the 

d.u k ot night . 
The city's tallest buildings and tallest tower with lights blinking through 

the heat, never in the same sequence, 
While the clock in the playground with its neon lights flashing every minute, 

every day, 
Always Hashing never stopping.

THE MURDER OF ALAN WINER 



It's three o'clock in the morning and I can't fall asleep; boy what a rip. "Oo waa! " I growled, enough for my ten year old 
brother to hear. "No not now, not tonight," mumbled my brother Cameron in his sleep. "Don't hurt me! " he yelled. 

When I heard him yell louder, I hopped out of my bed and ran over to his. With one knee on Cam's bed I asked him "What's 



wrong? 



"Eh? " he said. 



Suddenly my mother came charging in. "Mr. Donald Winer get out of your brother's bed! " she scolded. "You seven year 
old brat! " It sure was funny of Mom to call me that, especially on her anniversary. I quickly ran back to my brother's bed 
after she left. "Wake up," I whispered. "Wake up. 
Cam, wake up." 

Cameron rose from his bed and I told him what 
had happened. He then explained to me that his 
dream had been about, well. Mom killing Dad, and 
the words he said in his sleep were what Dad said. 
"Why do you want to know? " asked my brother. 
"It was only a dream, Mr. Sherlock Holmes," Cam 
said sarcastically. 

"Stop that nonsense," I said. I just wanted to 
know, I was-was curious." 

"Just because you're seven and in grade five 
doesn't mean you have to use all those fancy words," 
Cam said. "Never mind that," I said quickly to stop 
the fight. "Listen, Mom and Dad are having a fight." 
replied Cameron. "At this time of night," I 
whispered. Let's go listen." "Ya," said my brother 
with excitement. 

We tip-toed to and out the door to the stair 
railing where they couldn't see us but we could see 
and hear them. "You didn't bring any money home, 
you drank your way to heaven, and you didn't eat 
a thing! " yelled my mother. 

"Shut-up, you piece of--" Mom cut Dad short and 
ran into the kitchen. "Sue, I didn't — I mean 1 
wasn't-I-Sue." He ran into the kitchen. Suddenly 
we heard a scrambling. "Leave me alone, Alan! " she 
yelled. "Wait dear," Dad said, "Not now, not tonight 
. . .don't hurt me! " There was a loud scream which 
sent us up on our toes. We crept down stairs to 
see what had happened. We had a special peek hole 
which we would look in-it was blocked. "I'll go 
peak in the door," I said. 

When I peeked in the door, I stood looking in. 
big-eyed. There was my mother with a scarlet-red 
butcher's knife, with strips of silver showing on 
some parts; my Mom with blood in her hair as 
thick as ice, melting as it dripped on her face; her 
fist tight as rocks and her legs as stiff as a tree. Oh: 
And my Dad! He had a large gouge on his shoulder, 
and blood as thick as rope swiveled down his shirt. 
His face was as blue as a sailor's uniform. And 
then when the dense smell hit me, I screamed! 
My Mom saw me!

HERO OR NOT 

Still and straight he stands. 
When overseas he lands. 
With rifle he is armed. 
He tramples land once farmed. 

To tree his country's land. 
He tights on sea and sand. 
He kills the men who fear. 
To children he brings a tear. 

His cause he thinks he knows. 
If not, one is made, or grows. 
Hate and ruthless spite.

A SATURDAY MORNING AT HONEST ERNIE'S 



The obese stump of a sixty-five-year-old woman, dressed in a tawdry winter coat, waddled through the main entrance into 
the warmth and bustling crowd of Honest Ernie's department store. Mabel stopped and put down her heavy shopping bag in 
order to read a large advertisement. She stared dumbfounded at the sign for several moments. Then her eyes lit up and her face 
came to life as she took hold of the advertisement's message. Ladies' polyester pants were selling at seven dollars a pair on the 
fourth floor. Mabel lifted up her parcel and plodded toward the stairs with the thought of bargains spurring her on at a faster 
pace. She pushed aside all people who blocked her path. Occasionally she jabbed one of them with her elbow and swore at them 
under her breath. She gripped the banister to support her weight as she struggled to the top of the stairs. 

Once on the second floor, Mabel stopped to catch her breath. She wandered aimlessly through the piles of children's 
clothes; she picked something up every now and then, glanced at it, and tossed it back on the table. When she came to the 
candy department Mabel cautiously checked to make sure that no one was looking, and then quickly scooped a few candies from 
the container into her pocket. She chuckled to herself. 

An enthusiastic male voice suddenly burst forth from the public address system. El Classo brand lampshades, it announced, 
were selling at just three-fifty-nine each at the east end of the second floor. Having now forgotten what she had originally come 
up here for, Mabel made her way toward the stairs going up. On her way a woman, one of the bargain-hunters rushing east, 
bumped into her. Mabel's pudgy, deep-lined face turned a ferocious red as she bawled an obscenity at the woman, who ran on 
with the crowd. 

Eventually she arrived on the third floor. It was, save for a few people, empty. Exhausted, she threw herself down on a 
couch and took out a half-finished bag of Cheese Crunchies from her shopping bag. While she stuffed her mouth, Mabel admired 
the gaudy flower pattern of the couch on which she was relaxing and gazed round at the other furniture. Then something on 
the wall caught her eye. That reproduction, a pastel picture of a woman's face on black velvet, was beautiful. With its stunning 
gold plastic frame it would be a perfect addition to the hall of her home. Mabel dusted the crumbs from her face and coat onto 
the sofa, left the plastic bag crumpled on the floor and, picking up her parcel, waddled over to the wall. The picture was a

to the cashier's desk. Mable thought she heard the cashier snicker at the sight of 
the purchase, so she glared rudely at her. With her wallet almost empty but a 
great piece of art in her possession, Mabel strutted proudly down the two flights

SILENCE 

You wake up in the middle of the night and you feel fine. Bui soon you feel cold and clammy, youi body st.r • 
sweat. You Jon't know what it is. It is the feeling of being alone in youi room, the deadly silence hanging about you, and 
your bed. 

Silence isn't really a word in .1 sense, but almost a living tiling. It is moving among the people, arriving at each person at a 
ditlerent time. It can have a ghostly feeling about it. sometimes you dread it. sometimes you adore it. but most frequently 
you dread it. It comes like a disease. A disease which makes you jump, your nerves are alert to the slightest sound, at which 
you suddenly tense up. It puts a certain feeling into the air, one of uncertainty, and insecurity. It brings you to think that 
something bad is about to happen, something that you wouldn't like. It also makes the air seem heavy, and you become frightened 
at the slightest sound. 

Silence has a good side also, dining the day that is. It gives you a time to relax and collect vour thoughts. Il also L'ives you 
time to do your work; if there is a large amount of noise you keep getting interrupted and your work will be ot lower quality. 
So afterwards there is more noise produced by the assigner of the task. 

Silence can also have a feeling ot loneliness. When you are sit tine In yourself and everyone else [ iway, you feel 

lonely, secluded, isolated and almost as if you're an alien on a different planet and nobody is there to guide you. 

But then the proper time comes for it to go away. And then the time comes, it is gone, the deadly grasp of silence. 




OLD WOMAN 

Creaking and groaning 

waiting, wandering 

Once was tall, but now shrivelled 

Bent and frail 
waiting, dying 
Once was beautiful, but now wasted 

Dry and crisp 

waiting, aching 

Once was slender, but now dumpy 

Old and gnarled 
waiting, contemplating 
Once was alive, but now dead 

Buried and left 
resting, content 
The lady like the tree, had fallen. 

C. Winship 10. 





THE FALLING LEAF 

On the summit of a brown structure, creeping up through 
the sky, (as if wanting to touch the stars) there is a very 
small brownish green object which gently sways to and 
fro. This magnificent specimen of creation though old is 
still hanging on but will soon let go. 

The other occupants of the brown domain, that are 
worried about the leaving of one of the inhabitants, droop 
low in sadness. 

Suddenly, a violent breath of the heavens shakes the 
old thing until it is forced to let go and then it starts its 
soft journey towards that gigantic green place.

Of my Childhood 

Where still lie or still wander 

Old games, tops and pets 

A house where 1 was little 

And afraid to swear 

Because god might of heard me. 

Ah But now in my Montreal suite 

I look back on those long forgotten days. 

And ponder as if to say 

wouldn't it be nice to be little again.

THE Kll I 

The ducks were flying away foi the winter. 

and down in the marsh stood a beaming hunter. 
He lifted his gun and aimed with his eve. 

he cocked the hammer, and shot to the sky. 

The bullet made contact, the duck was hit. 

The duck dog readied in a nearby pit. 
The duck was now falling unto the ground 
and across the water shot a well-trained hound. 

He picked up the duck by its neck so limp\ . 
The ducks Hew on, leaving the one who was skimpy. 
They continued on south so as not to he chilled 
and they knew full-well that they could have been killed. 

The hunter lifted his gun once more, 

and into the skv the bullet did soar. 

it missed its target and the hunter was mad, 

yet all of creation was really quite glad.

Who is that lad that follows me? 

I know not his name, nor, it he mine 

But he is there and I sec him 

Whenever I glance in a window 

In the daylight, of course. 

At night he darkens and. at best 

His profile is all that 1 can see 

As he hops, skips and bounds 

Back and forth under the streetlights. 

But who is that lad that follows me? 

1 think he bears a certain resemblance 

I o ' hi i it lui of mine but not to me: 

His hail is p.u ted opposite mine 

And he is left handed and I right. 

He is unite and maybe deal 

Hut he sees all; his eyes are nevei closed. 
Someday I should like to meet him 
And perhaps we could reflect on life a little.

THE CHEETAH 

Chased through the swamp, out of the bog, 

Over the hill and into the fog, 

I am the Cheetah fleetest of foot. 

No man will get me in the sight of his gun 

For I will out run him, give him no fun. 

Through the woods on the pads of my paws. 

I slipped into the giant metal jaws. 

I lay there the rest of the night. 

contemplating the depths of my hopeless 

plight. 

Viciously caught, happened to me, 

I will never live to run wild and free. 

D. Hill 9. 



SUPERIOR? 

It is graceful; Its contour unique 

As it spreads its wings 

To fly to the fermament, 

Like the superior earthling once only dreamed 

It is high in the sky the heaven. 

Free. is it? 

once verity it was — 

The superior earthlings figments became verity. 

To the Fedgling. 

Belongs the sky. 

Of which the superior earthling took 

The purpose of freedom. 

For now, 

There are two winged creatures 

In the heavens: 

One makes music, is graceful. It contour unique, 

God. 
One makes a din, burns, is hard, unwielding, 

Satan.

A PRE-CAMBRIAN PARADOX 

Love is a soft rock, a yielding Gibraltar, 

An unwavering beam of light shot through a prism 

With soft peacock hues sweetly dispalyed on the other side. 

A rock that cries, and emotes her power 

Through her own firm fragility. 

The front door is open, the house stands waiting. 
Light streams inside, 

The window shutters open their arms to embrace the rising sun. 
Cries of a new-born babe ring pink innocence 
through the echoing hallways.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE 

I sat cringing in my chair, seeking shelter from the cit) 

people. And then-suddenly-they found me! I covered 
my ears but still 1 heard it; the senseless speech droning on 
foi endless measurements of time. The never-ending talk 

of useless inventions and boring holidays. Then 1 fell. 
Fell from the incredibly loud echoes ol the twentieth 
century metropolis into-silence. 

Total and complete silence. It had no dimensions, no 
sensations, no form, yet-still-it was there, 1 was surrounded 
in a motionless mass of noiselessness. And. in some strange, 
mysterious way. I heard it. It was a loud sort of silence, 
yet its presence was not discomforting. It lent me security, 
and I felt safe in the shelter it provided. It built a wall around me and I was its companion. 

I walked out into the kingdom of peace and tranquility and saw the true beauty ol silence. In every branch, in every stone, 
in every little creature, I beheld the wonderful beauty. The sky talked to me of the glorious lite he lived. And together, we 
talked for many hours, vet did not speak. And I heard him yet 1 did not listen. We became three great friends— me. the sky. and 
silence. 

As I explored and learned the ways of silence, I became so familiar with it that it became a common sound. I would sit 
by the brook and watch it babble and gurble over the rocks, but still it did not make the slightest murmur. The birds whistled, 
unheard, in the trees. Life was peaceful in the kingdom of silence and I became part of it. Hut, in the time that was to follow. I 
would come to know the silence as I knew myself and it would take over all other things which were held precarious, in my 
mind. I would worship it and it would be as a god unto me. 

In time, the seasonal rains came and showered the earth with their pure enrichment. I tried to listen tor the faintest "drip"' 
of rain hitting the soft ground but, like all else in that kingdom, there was no sound to hear. And my strange prophecy came 
true-for I now knew the true meaning of the word "silence". 

It was a void mass of shapeless condensation. It was a commanding mist of swirling tears. It preyed upon -and devoured- 
sound. It was master of all the universe beyond our tiny, insignificant world. It had the power of lite and death, and it could 
make the world stop-motionless-whenever it pleased. Loud, yet soft, were its sorrowful cries. It was weakening to the 
stereophonic smog of noise. But still it tought on without complaint. It is said that good will defeat evil-and so must silence 
defeat the loud rumbling noises of mankind. 

I sat in amazement-amazement at my realization of the true meaning of silence. Its pure and gentle beauty, and its 
eternal existence. From Aristotle to Galileo to Einstein, from Einstein to me-all men have wondered about it. And now. I 
have found it. 

From the beginnings of time it has been a sound of fortitude and strength, a sound of courage and forgiveness, a sound of 
beauty and peace. It is. . .the sound of silence. 

D. Gorden 7.

TRAPPED 

The intruder had entered the room, 
and ear-piercing noise broke the silence of the dark; 
lights flashed off the walls, 
orange flourescent beams of laser guns, 
glowed brilliantly against the ceiling, 
spinning like a ferris wheel out of control; 
enclosing walls trapped the foreign being, 
engulfed in blue flames escaping from the floor, 
the intruder disappeared into the eeriness of space and time. 
R. McClelland 10. 




Fire, the ultimate symbol, is energy, 
simple but complex, 
the giver of birth and death, 
small as a candle flame and as great as the sun 
timeless and reborn again and again, 
Man's answer to survival or destruction. 
J. Robinson. 



There once was a man who 

lived in a tree, 

He felt very truely that 

he was a flea, 

To prove his point 

he smoked a joint, 

and now he thinks he's 

a bee. 

F. Morrison 9 



If a man be blind must he 
Also be a sleeper? 
He faces each morning 
Alone, not 
Understanding- 
Or at least not able to 
See his persecutors. 
They profess to care for him 
But care more themselves. 
What if you were sightless? 
And he were not- 
Perhaps the world would 
Not be as bright for you, 
But then- 
It never really mattered. 
J. Burry 9 



THE FIELD

Whirling winds blow through the field. 
Rustling the grass and scattering the leaves 
Blowing the tops of the oak trees, 
Closing the buttercups on the bees.

ST. GEORGE'S COLLEGE 
GRADES 9-13 SURVEY 
COMMENTS 

- Grade 12/13 should have places within the school for smoking. The practice of forcing people out to the backsteps is barbaric. 

- Rubberized Asphalt should be put down, because almost every sport can be played on it, and in the long run it will be 
cheaper than replacing the sod every 3 or 4 years which is usually ripped off the first weekend it is put down. 

- 1 like the school because it is all male. This breeds a good atmosphere between students and between students and staff. 

- We need a coke machine. 

- Invite God to Thursday and Friday Chapel services. 

- St. George's has always been a demanding School, sometimes too demanding. However, I have never regretted attending here 
and in today's society, a private school of St. George's caliber is essential. 

- Academically, athletically, and socially S.G.C. offers more than any school I have observed. Personally S.G.C. has done a 
lot for me and vise-versa. I was hesitant at first to come; the work is hard, heavy and most of all worth my while! 

- 1 think that the Students' Council should not be responsible for damage to automobiles in the parking lot. 

- Are you kidding, next year I'm leaving! 

- No mention was made as to whether or not the science fair is justified. ... One must realize that a non-Georgian describes the 
college as the one with the science fair, not the school with the chapel or losing teams. 

- I believe the back field should be turned into a cesspool, let dry, then sold off as fertilizer. 

- The back field should be turned into an enormous botanical garden and filled with palm trees. 

- What would you do if we all had to dress like Mongolian Swineherders? 

- I think this school should not have dress regulations. If this school wants to be noticed, it should have good academic and 
physical education qualities. 

- 1. More holidays; 2. Dress Code should be liberalized; 3. More sex education; 4. Longer hockey season. 

- I would like to see more of a variety of subjects during the day and let us out 40 minutes later. Subjects such as drama, shop, 
art, architecture. 



- The school is small, but has a good spirit. I think the way the masters and students communicate is great. 

- As far as being an educational institution I feel that S.G.C. provided an excellent atmosphere and programme that would not 
have been enjoyed anywhere else. 

- Female teachers might cause students to act a little more maturely. They might be embarrassed more easily if they fooled 
around in front of her. 

- A greater school spirit would be super. How to do it? That would require great thought on the part of staff and students. 

- I believe St. George's is an excellent school with excellent teaching facilities as well as teachers. The athletic programme is es- 
sential as well as very adequate. With respect to the back field 1 believe it should be covered with rubber asphalt so any number 
of sports could be played. Either that or extend the parking lot so that some students or at least grade thirteen, should be able 
to park there. 1 think the masters and upper school students should take more initiative in making the house system work. It 
really has very little influence in the school at the moment but 1 believe it could easily be made into a more enthusiastic aspect. 
I believe chapel is rewarding to some but also very useless for others. Thus I propose a trial system of optional chapel services 
in the mornings and a compulsory service on Friday afternoons. This idea of detentions for missing chapel is rather childish. 
You can't force religion on anybody. 

- On the whole 1 believe St. George's College is the best school in the city and I would not go anywhere else. The friendships 
with students and masters are unbelieveable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. 

- In my humble opinion, this school exists as an excellent alternative to the public school system. However, the pomp and 
cermony that go with a private school detracts from S.G.C.'S effectiveness as a school. The prefect system, for example, is out- 
moded in today's society. Setting up an elite in a grade means a two class system. This causes unnecessary antagonisms between 
the students, and the tasks required of the prefects do not seem to require the creation of a privileged class. Instead, a duty 
system involving the whole of grade 13 would be a better alternative. 

- I suggest that there should be a more lenient dress regulation, like being able to wear good shirts other than white. 

- I feel a feasible suggestion would be to locate a tennis court on top of the Founder's Hall Gym. 

- I would like to see an extention of the art and music programme into the senior grades. 

- I feel that the teachers are excellent and take great concern for the students. But I also feel that a different way of dividing 
classes should be made using maturity level instead of intelligence. 

- The social life has been brought up greatly this year due to the good student's council. 

THE EDITORS REGRET THAT WE ARE NOT ABLE TO PRINT THE PERCENTAGES OF THE SURVEY AT THE

SPORTS 




FIRST SOCCER 



The soccer team in the '76-'77 season proved 
itself a worthy opponent to any team in the I.S. 
A. A. Many times the score indicated otherwise; 
but that. I can honestly say, was not the indica- 
tion of the plav in the games. Some may doubt 
this yet! To those I can only say "vou had to 
be there". 

It was a hard season filled with many pitfalls 
and problems. Our coach. Tim Burns, became 
ill early in the season and as a result missed the 
rest of the soccer games. It was an uncertain ill- 
ness from which he is making a good recovery. 
The team was very glad to hear that. This year 
the 1st soccer had the greatest potential vet we failed to live 
up to it. It is disappointing, but more than winning, the team 
members learned to work with one another. Early in the sea- 
son players were exhibiting good skill and team play, just as 
good if not better than the best of the teams. It was the 3rd 
year with the same coach and his coaching talents were really 
shining for the team. It seemed it would be the year of St. 
George's lst's and I believe it very well could have been if we 
had not lost him early in the season. With Tim Burns ill, there 
were many arguments and disputes within the squad concern- 
ing partners and play. Most were ironed out and for those 
problems that weren't, I take responsibility. The team had 
lost some of its unity but we still held together. Most mem- 
bers of the squad had worked together in previous years. The 
new players to the team proved to be a great asset with regard 
to play, spirit, and skill. I think the potential this coming year 
will be equal to, or even surpass last year's if the younger 
members were an indication of the play to be seen in the 
'77-'78 season. 

Well, even though the going got tough many a time, the

players had a good year. We certainly didn't have a winning 
season. The team experienced something better than win- 
ning. Through play in practice and games, new friends were 
made and old friendships were strengthened: each individual 
grew with respect to understanding and working with the 
other 'guys' and a greater awareness of the game and of 
team sport was acquired. In the long run this is more impor- 
tant than winning the season. There will be many memories 
about the bus rides to games, the time spent discussing play, 
lineups and the curse of the 'gimp toot', and there are manv 
more. 

Being the last year for many 1st soccer players including 
myself we all wish the team the best in the year to come. 

The squad wishes to thank Mr. McMaster for his assist- 
ance in the absence of Tim Burns. Thanks are also extended 
to Mr. Love for showing up at the last few games. 

To Tim Burns, thanks for all your time and effort.

SECOND SOCCER 



This year's U16 soccer team enjoyed 
the school's finest soccer year. We play- 
ed consistently well under the coaching 
of Mr. Love, who put in a lot of his 
time, effort and great enthusiasm. All 
our players gave big efforts in every 
game. Among our biggest games was a 
narrow 1-0 loss to the French School's 
1st team. We won a thrilling game over 
UCC's 2nd team after coming from be- 
hind for a 3-2 win. We played Crescent 
to a 1-1 draw and lost to Laketield 
4-3. Besides our 3-2 win over'UCC we 
defeated Appleby 3-1, Pickering 5-2. 
we tied Crescent 1-1, and defeated 
Appleby again 2-1. The net minding 
on U16 was done by Tom Riley and 
U17 by Greg Fox. The U16 consisted 
of Mike Flowers, Brad Hodgson, Jamie 
Brenzel, Mark Worrall, Bruce Lawes, 
Mike Gee. Geoff Morphy. Chris Winship, 
Rob Secor, Geoff Bernardo. The U17 
team consisted of Keith Lawes, Mike 
Holmes, Fraser Phillips, M. Flowers, 
Mark Hunter, Barry Chisholm, John 
Sankey, Terry King, Tom Moffat, Rob 
Linghorne, G. Bernardo. This year's 
record: U17 - W:3. L:2, T:0. U16 - 
W:3, L:5.T:1.

The Under 14 team was put together to play in a tourna- 
ment in Ottawa. We played four games and lost, but not 
because the team did not work. They are all to be com- 
mended for their hard work on the field and for giving up 
their Saturday mornings for practices. At this time, we 
would like to thank Mr. Smith and Mr. Tansey for their 
excellent coaching and driving. It was an extremely 
educating experience. The Under 14 team had a much 
improved season with a record of 3 wins, 5 ties and 2 losses. 
Under the expert coaching of Mr. Smith we had a good 
season. All the players are to be commended for their en- 
thusiasm and great team-work which made the season a 
great success. We would like to extend our appreciation to 
Mr. Smith. It was a very successful year. 




Hugh Phillips 





The '76 - '77 season was a banner one for the Firsts. 
For the first time in the ten year history of the team our 
opposition was primarily made up of 1st teams from 
other I.S.A.A. schools. Attaining this goal was further 
complimented bv the fact that the team was competitive 
with the established I.S.A.A. teams. We started the year 
off strongly but slumped in early January with highly 
unexpected losses to U.C.C.II. 

One of the highlights of the season was the invitation 
to participate in the Kawartha Lakes High School Hockey 
Tournament. As a result of this tournament return games 
with Crestwood S.S. (Peterborough) and Sen. O'Connor 
(Toronto) were arranged. 

This year's team members were as follows starting at 
top left of picture: Team manager - D. Burry. K. Matthews. 
M. Richardson. P. Meyrick. J. Millen. D. Campbell. Coach- 
D. McMaster, S. Cameron. M. Hunter, P. McMichael. C. 
Crassweller, Dr. D. Shilletto. Bottom row: T. Rubes, D. 
Richmond. B. Hill. D. Irvine, F. Phillips, R. Kuby. N. 
Shilletto. 

The team sported an impressive group ot rookies who 
displayed some excellent potential. Also our goalies 
proved once again that we couldn't have done as well 
without their excellence in goaltending. 

1 felt this year was a great success despite the many 
injuries on the team. This season's 'injury of the year 
award' goes to Scott Cameron, who successfully faked a 
shoulder injury for many weeks just so he could pick his 





r 



girlfriend up alter school. The runner up lor the award 
goes to 'Fat Geets' who would be awa) in case Scon made 
it to a practice. The winner ot the 'missed the net award' 
goes once again to Brian Hill toi his consistency in being 
able to miss that big wide opening. The 'most consistent 
crawler award' goes to D.C. McMastei who constantly tell 








down in an attempt to show us that he can be as graceful as 
Dorothy Hamil too! The big award to the 'most out of 
shape player' goes to Mungo 'the King' Meyrick who proved 
to have the largest GUT! , garnished delicately with wriggly 
fat. 

Despite all this WITTY HUMOUR we were knitted very 
tightly as a team with a cliche-type feeling but a very im- 
portant one to all of us that is "THINK TEAM".

The under 14 team enjoyed a short, but competitive sea- 
son of hockey. Coached by Mr. Clayton, with the able assist- 
ance of Sandy McLaren, this team of rookies and veterans 
from grades 7, 8, and 9 played 9 games; winning 3, losing 5 
and tying 1. 

The hockey program focused on two main objectives. 
Twice-weekly practice sessions at Forest Hill Arena stressed 
skill development. Various conditioning, skating, shooting, 
positioning drills were employed. The one scheduled game 
per week provided the players with the opportunity to put 
their skills to good use and to develop the attitudes which 
are necessary for sound team play. As the season progressed 
improvement was evident in both of these areas. 

The team play featured the steady, and at times, heavily- 
relied upon goaltending of Hugh Phillips and Steve Crerar: 
the improving defensive work of Cam Clokie, David, "not 
another injury" Hill, Anthony Birozes, Ian Fowler and Jetf 
Mock: the scoring prowess of the Jeff Brown, Jamie Zakuta, 
Andy Grieve line; the determination of Bill Clarke, Mark

The season began with a close-checking come-from-behind 
3-3 tie against Crescent. The next 5 games proved to be a 
frustrating experience. Although the team played well for 
most of the games there was a tendency to let "the goalies do 
it' in the final period. Consequently. 5 straight defeats icsult- 
ed. 

Atter Mr. Clayton had his little talk with 'good friend' 
Howie the team effort improved. With a well e. it tied, and, 



for obvious reasons, much deserved 2-0 vicl Hill- 

field, the team embarked on a 5 game winning streak. A 7-2 
victory over St. Andrew's and a 5 I victory against a well- 
disciplined Lakcfield team. This 3 game winning streak 
demonstrated that the emphasis on skill development and 
team play had paid off. In addition, the team seemed to be 
at its best when it had to meet the challenge ol .m oldei 
team. 



SWIM TEAM 



This has been an excellent year for swimming at St. 
George's College. For the first time we have been able 
to put forth a full Junior and Senior team with many 
reserves. Clearly, interest in swimming has escalated 
considerably over the past year and this is perhaps due 
to several occurrences of which three come readily to 
mind. First of all the team members themselves are to be 
congratulated for the incredible spirit they have generated 
among one another. It takes much more than a mild in- 
terest to turn out at 7:00 AM for an hour's training every 
Monday. Wednesday and Friday! On top of this to attend 
afternoon sessions every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! 
However, most team members were out 90 per cent of 
the time and the captain, James Tasker, set a fine example 
by being in attendance almost 100 per cent! This type of 
team spirit is the foundation of any successful team and 
we certainly experienced it this year and trust that it 
will gather even greater momentum by this time next 
year. 

Secondly we must thank our Ladies Guild for their 
indispensible financial support which indeed enabled us 
to utilize the enthusiasm generated in the team by 
providing us with the necessary funds to obtain maximum 
pool time at St. Alban's Boy's Club pool where we train. 
Without this our aspirations would have been rendered 
useless. 

Thirdly, but not the least was the additional skill, 
knowledge and exhuberance of our new assistant coach 





Mr. Richard Mundinger. Richard comes to us from U. of T. 
where he is involved in computer science. His interest and 
coaching ability has been of great value to the team and we 
hope to see him actively employed in our services again 
next year; he has been a most successful addition to our 
swimming team. 

As well, the afternoon diving program was headed by 
Mr. Birkett who somehow pulled a team together for the 
I.S.A.A. swim meet, and managed to form at least a few 
competent divers out of nothing. There were even some 
interesting and new variations in front and back somersaults 
by people who couldn't even do them. 

The climax of the year was the I.S.A.A. swim meet against 
Appleby, Ridley, St. Andrew's U.C.C., T.C.S., Hillfield 
and Crescent. St. George's came sixth out of eight, missing 
fifth place by one point. Although we were outclassed in 
a number of the races, there were more important gains 
made by the 4x50 yd. medley relay team; Malcolm Ness, 
James Tasker, Peter Coward, and Grant Thompson. Pat 
Yost came seventh in the 200 yd. freestyle breaking his 
previous best. This is an outstanding achievement since he 
is in Grade Seven. James Tasker came fourth in the 100 yd. 
breast stroke. Overall, we compiled seven times as many 
points as last year. 

I would like to thank Mr. Baxter, Mr. Birkett. Richard 
Mundinger and the team for working hard to accomplish this 
and I hope next year will be better still 
James Tasker - Team Cap. 
D.A. Baxter - Coach.

A friend of mine once said to me that the best part of a 
basketball game is the last two minutes, his theory being that 
the last two minutes enabled him to witness the most impor- 
tant part of the game - the final score. Now his approach to 
watching basketball games does not apply to football or hock- 
ey. What this suggests is that he is not totally ignorant when 
it comes to sports and where his priorities lie. T!ie important 
thing is which team wins, and if the sport involves good clean 
violence, the more the better. In basketball body checking 
is not prevalent and therefore uninteresting to the trained eye 
of the collision sport tan. but it is nice to note that basket- 
ball does rate at least two minutes viewing time. 

This year the St. George's First Basketball Team did not 
provide many victories with which to please the last-minute 
viewer, but under Mr. Dunkley's coaching the first 30 min- 
utes become more important than the last two. In order for 
a basketball team to compete seriously it must be prepared 
to play basketball for the entire game. What all the last-min 
ute viewers will not realize is that our basketball team played 
every game as well as any other team in the league, and it is 
a tribute to Mr. Dunkley's and the team's hard work that a 



school of such a small student bodv is able to field a team 
which can play good solid basketball tor thirty-two minutes. 
In the full time limit ten times as many things are done as in 
the last two minutes, ten times as many plays, ten times as 
mam passes and ten times as much hard work. This is what 
our team and anv other basketball teams strive tor. In pti | 
ration for games, hours are spent learning and practising the 
plays and fundamentals that make up a good basketball team. 
Learning to plav the game comes before winning: even it St. 
George's is not a winning team this ve.tr. it certainly is a bas- 
ketball team. 

The fact that St. George's was not a winning team is not 
to say we didn't win any games. So, tor the last minute view- 
ers we present the overtime victory over previously undefea 
ted Bishop Ridley College. For 32 minutes plus an addition 
al overtime period the team played basketball as well as I 
have ever seen any team play. With the nucleus >'t the team 
returning next year it will be well within t licit capabilities to 
have a success! u I season with Graeme Rogers going up foi the 
big one.

Some great philosopher once said "winning isn't impor- 
tant, it's how you play the game". Well, after our first few 
games, 1 came to the bovious conclusion that he must have 
played for St. George's. 

We opened our season at U.C.C. and like the gracious 
guests we are, we snatched a defeat from the jaws of 
victory. With six seconds to play we turned over the ball. 
Upper Canada scored and won, 34-32. The next two games 
were not that much better. The team played well but lost 
by ten and three points. After we got creamed by U.T.S. 
it was suggested that we go home and get our Sumari 
swords! 

However, our luck changed. With the scoring power of 
our forwards and the play-making of the team's guards we 
started to win. The first victims of our onslaught were T.C.S. 
We edged them 51-22. After this we did not look back 
as we won our last four games. 

The season was a success as we finished with a winning 
record. It is always easy in articles like these to praise the 
starters, those of us whose skills or experience mean more 
play than the others; however, the people who really make 
up the heart and soul of a team are those who sweat and 
strain during practice only to sit on the bench. Great thanks 
and praise to Riley, Beatty, Brenzel and Wigle are called for.

GRADE EIGHT CANOE TRIP 1977 

For the fourth consecutive year the St. George's Grade Eight Canoe Trip 
will be undertaken in Algonquin Park from Monday June 20 until the fol- 
lowing Friday. 

This has been a highly successful event in the past and no doubt will be 
just as successful this year. The group will be predominantly Grade Eight 
with some Grade Nines led by Mr. Robin Fulford, Mr. Andrew Barlow, Guy 
Burry and Mr. John Kiddell. 

Canoes and canoe packs are rented from Algonquin Outfitters, while paddles, 
life preservers, and tents are provided by the students. 

The route is chosen for its variety: lakes, rivers, marshes, and frequent 
portages. These portages exceed a mile in length, but they are spaced out so 
that exhaustion is not the main feature of the trip. The overall distance is 
approximately fifty miles. 

During the trip instruction is given in camping skills such as wood cutting, 
fire-making, basic skills of canoeing, and, of course, protecting one's self 
from the camper's enemies: mosquitos and black flies. Fishing and swimming 
(sometimes involuntarily) are also frequent activities. All contribute to the 
over-all recreational spirit. 

In spite of burnt food, cold water, aching shoulders, insect bites, and 
sunburn, the Grade Eights will, surprisingly, enjoy themselves thoroughly.

SCIENCE 





The 11th Science Fair attracted an estimated total of 500 visitors for the two nights of January 20 & 21. This occasion 
produced the largest visitor turnout per participating student in the College's 13th year. Obviously a popular and integral 
function. Grade nine, ten & eleven exhibited the 127 projects. As usual the Applied Science and Engineering category was 
the largest, entertaining 46 per cent of the entrees. Life Sciences comprised 20 per cent of the project body, with Maths and 
Physical Sciences counting for 19 per cent of the total mass of exhibits. Environmental Sciences registered a less earth shatter- 
ing 15 per cent of the projects submitted. There were many memorable exhibits, namely. Dean Turney's "Introduction to the 
Maths of Infinity." This was effective; but, unfortunately, went on and on. Paul Shepherd was able to display a "blackhole". 
One looked into the retainer through an observation hole and saw nothing but black. Peter Keresteci's fermentation samples 
were popular but, somehow two bottles of his home brew mysteriously vanished even though security was tight. Many people 
were interested in Mike Saunder's topic which does much to reflect the buildings of the future. Mike traced man's pyromani- 
cal tendencies and had his attempts to produce four bombs filmed. Incidently, the cameraman missed the only successful ex- 
plosion. John Northcott's "Baseballs and Bullets" was good but would have had more impact with an accompanying demon- 
stration. Keith Fletcher's "Water-drop Generator" revealed a potential energy leak, while David Reive explained that "Quarks" 
are theoretically possible, but in reality not a particle of truth can be found to substantiate quark existence. Chris Winship did 
his exhibit on "Cryogenics" and proved that one can boil coldfish successfully--an interesting entree.

FAIR 





The judging was performed by fifteen judges comprised of 
four Old Boys; John Bartram. John Lemke. Bob Snelgrove, 
and Dave Williams, two U of T Professors, a Professional En- 
gineer, a Chemist, an author/lecturing Professor, and Inde- 
pendent School representatives from Branksome. Lakefield. 
Ridley, St. Andrew's and Upper Canada College. One judge 
expressed the opinion that the calibre of the projects was 
mediocre only in the sense that there were no bad projects, 
but also a few outstanding ones. Geoff Wheatstone and com- 
pany (Grade 13 Biology), constructed a working model of the 
mousetrap which had appeared on the Science Fair posters. It 
made a C.F.T.O. & a C.B.C. T.V. appearance on Friday, Jan. 
21st on the 6 & 11 p.m. news. One can imagine the impression 
this may have left: all the television viewers seeing the mousetrap 
believe they have been properly exposed to a St. George's 
College Science Fair. In any event, the Science Fair did com- 
municate ideas. 1977, "the year of the mouse", was a pre- 
cedent for Science Fairs which follow - a challenge to all those 
who believe they can "build a better mousetrap". 

Yours truly, 

Anonymouse. 







NORVAL 



Again this year, we ran successful one week 
science schools for grades four to eight. Although 
each form master and I taught classes in a vari- 
ety of specific areas, much of the time was de- 
voted to field studies. In these, the boys worked 
in small groups to thoroughly investigate a speci- 
fic topic in the natural sciences. They had a week 
after their return in which to organize their find- 
ings - and conclusions - into a well written, well 
illustrated presentation. The emphasis in both 
the field work and the presentation was on per- 






3 E»B DD 



sonal observations, building toward research. 

As different topics are covered with each 
grade, a boy lucky enough to go to Norval each 
year from grade four to grade eight receives a 
well rounded course in scientific research related 
to the outdoors. 

As the pictures show, all the bovs are able to 
turn free time into fun time, as well as develop- 
ing their ability to get along with one another.

THE DYNASTY IS OVER! ! 

For the first time in three or four years the Master's baseball team was defeated, but understandably so, for they were 
beaten by a superior team. This year's grade 13, who had been playing the role of possom for the previous years, decided it 
was time to show their stuff. They went out on the field with absolutely no fear and using only their skill, handily defeated 
the degenerating and obese masters. 

The 13's rolled to a 9-5 victory. Yes it's true, the dynasty is over! ! But we can't blame the masters. Just look at some ot 
their players. If "stick" Fulford is turned sideways, you can't even see him, and "coach" McMaster thinks first base is a 
hockey net and thus throws the ball to the first baseman's stick side. 

It was a great game, but the most important thing was that we all had a lot ot fun. The Masters, who hadn't lost in a number 
of years, still didn't forget how. They were the most graceful losers that you could imagine although three of them stuck their 
heads in the mound and the others proceeded to break all the bats. After the game they invited us all to share in a round of 
refreshment but we did most of the talking. 

Later we gave them a second chance and as Mr. Wright would say, "We got edged." There is no doubt that we have the 
greatest group of men teaching at our school that is possible, and on behalf of the grads - thanks tor all the great times. We 
will never forget them.

On Thursday. March 10th the annual St. 
Georges' Hockev night was held. The one 
evening in the vear when wisdom, cunning 
and experience (the old boys) is pitted against 
inexperience, youth, and physically tit bodies 
(the first team). 

It was a close game and both sides played 
exceptionally well. 

The first goal was scored minutes into the 
first period by Peter Mevrick ot the first 
team. The Old Boys immediately came back 
with a goal by Brook Biscoe. Unfortunately, 
after this point the Old Boys' wisdom, cun- 
ning, and experience gave way to youth and 
physically tit bodies and they were edged 
seven to one. 

The goals were scored by (in order) Doug 
Richmond. Scott Cameron, Doug Richmond, 
Dave Irvin, Fraser Phillips and again Doug 
Richmond. 

After the game both of the teams retired 
to the Steak and Burger Tavern to share some 
beer and talk shop. 

The evening was enjoyed by all who attend- 
ed.

DANCES 



Without a doubt, 1976-77 was a most successful year in 
the history of St. George's College dances. It was also the 
first year for the elected Social Committee (Peter Burnside, 
Bill Deacon and Geoff Wheatstone). 

October 23, 1976 was the night of STUMBL1N BLIND. 
Geoff Wheatstone, who was the main organizer of this 
dance, booked a hard rock band. It was our first dance and 
we didn't really know what to expect. To our surprise, apart 
from some delays due to faulty wiring, the dance turned out 
to be the most financially profitable in the history of the 
Student's Council. As a matter of fact, our net profit was 
considerably higher than the amount of money that the 
Student's Council of two years ago had to their name at the 



end of their tenure. 

For the next dance, we had a dream. That dream was to 
put a big name band in the Upper School Gym. Surprising- 
ly enough, Mr. Wright agreed to let us use the Gym. We then 
booked Wireless for Jan. 21 - a band who had played the 
concert bowl at Maple Leaf Gardens. Posters were made up 
and two weeks before the gig, the booking agent informed 
us that the band was unable to play the 21st because of a 
cross-Canada tour that they were going on with April Wine. 

After some wheeling and dealing, we postponed the 
dance to Feb. 18 (Fate was on our side because the previous 
date was the day of the big snow storm). We secured a stage 
from U.C.C. and to our shock the day before we found out 






that we had an incredible problem. Wireless needed 100 amp 
Three Phase power. St. George's could only supply 100 amp 
Single Phase. We had three choices: cancel the dance, run a 
jumper line from Bathurst Street ($900.00), or rent a gener- 
ator ($250). Our choice was the last. Even though our expen- 
ses on this single dance were higher than the 1976-77 pre- 
vious Council had spent during their entire year, we managed 
to attract 500 people (more than any other dance in St. 
George's history). Though the sound was rough as a result of 
the cement walls of the gvm, St. George's had held a dance 
with Wireless - probably the most spectacular band the 
Independent schools have ever seen. 

The last dance of the year on April 1 5, was the most en- 
joyable of all. Abbey Road played amid three T.V. sets 



(Leaf-Flyer series) before one of the most enthusiastic 
crowds we have ever had. The guys in the band were genu- 
inely friendly and as a result they played a half-hour over- 
time. Every song they played was Beatles and every song 
was danceable rock and roll. The stomping tor an encore 
just about brought down the root of Ketchum Hall. Ever) 
one had a great time. 1 hear rumours that next year's Coun- 
cil might be booking this band tor a dance - and 1 hope they 
do. Abbey Road is the sort ot band that will grow in popu- 
larity. We will all keep an eye on their career - and watch out 
Liverpool!

STUDENTS COUNCIL 



At St. Clement's School on Sunday, M.iy 7, Mike 
Hendrick and I attended the first-ever conference or 
Student Leaders from various independent schools. 
Everyone of the Southern Ontario schools was represen- 
ted. We went to this conference with mixed teelings - 
we thought that the other schools would show better 
systems than we had. We were wrong! 

Of the 15 schools represented only two schools other 
than St. George's had Student Councils, and both of 
these schools stated they were going to scrap their Coun- 
cils because they were 'useless'. All of these schools used 
Prefects. There was no central treasury, no school meet- 
ings, no disclosure of financial activities, no school repre- 
sentation, and no democracy. 




At St. G allege we should be thankful that we 

have a system like the Students' Council. It assures that 
there is no domination by the upper strata of the senior 
school. Every Grade has two representatives and we have 
a Middle Vice-President that must come tr. im Grade 8 or 
9. The Senior Vice-President must come from Grade 12 
and the Social Committee must have a member from 
Grade 1 1 within its ranks. Our Students' Council is re- 
sponsible to the students of the school. Every cent that 
is taken out of the central treasury is voted on bv the 
Council and their approval must be gained also when 
booking Bands for dances. This is certainly a much dif- 
ferent system than that used by our colleagues in other 
independent schools. 

If a difficult issue is put forward in a meeting, the 
vote is brought back to the classes to assure that everv- 
body plays a part in the decision-making process. It a 
member of the Council is not doing his job. he may be 
impeached by a two-thirds majority. All these elements 
assure that our Council is run with maximum efficien 

By making sure that the student feels that his voice is 
being heard, there is created an important element called 
ENTHUSIASM. And it is because of this student enthusi- 
asm that St. George's has been able to raise an incredible 
amount for various charities and to arrange dances which 
are well-attended, most enjoyable, and financially profit- 
able. In earlier years our Council's biggest problem was 
money. However, with profits of S450.00 on the 'Stumb- 
lin' Blind Dance'. $200.00 on "Wireless", and S250.00 on 
"Abbey Road", the money problem has been alleviated 
for the next few years. This year's Student Council will 



leave next year's Council SI, 600 bank balance which 
should be more than enough to achieve financial stab- 
ility. Also this year, instead of the Ladies' Guild finan- 
cially supporting the Council, we supported them for a 
change with a substantial gift of money to offset the 
cost of an electric scoreboard for the gymnasium. 

As the result of our Students' Council there exists a 
feeling of togetherness and communication which gives 
our school more than the "class' of huge buildings and 
fancy football fields - it gives our school the spirit that 
makes it so great today. 

But the Students' Council is something that should not 
be taken for granted. The students of St. George's College 



are blessed with a system that is unfamiliar to many other 
private schools. On election dav students are asked to be 
careful in voting tor it is a privilege that many other schools 
do not have - they are urged to vote tor a candidate, not 
because he is the most popular or because he had the 
wildest advertising campaign, but because he is thought 
to be the best person to represent the students. 

The past year has been a successful one for the 
77 Student Council.. ..the enthusiastic support of the 
whole student bod) guaranteed it. Ti i nexl \ eai 's t <>un- 
cil we wish the best oi success.

The United Way Campaign was again a great success, as 
the Senior school raised over 6500 dollars in total and the 
Junior school raised 2700 dollars tut the Canterbury 
Cathedral Fund. Money collected by the Junior school was 
made bv a biblical exodus from the school, that had over 
one hundred refugees tram 
ping through the streets of 
Toronto - (a walk-a-thon). 
Both grades 9-1 and 1 3 or- 
ganized their own grub days. 
Grade 111 held a swim-a-thon 
that featured Raines Koby 
as lifeguard and 900 dol- 
lars as the total money 
raised. Grade 9-2 also held 
a swim-a-thon. Both grade 
10 classes had bike-a-thons. 
For grade 10-1. Jarjour. 
Heisey, Shepherd and 
Hughes volunteered to 
brave the dangers of the 
long and treacherous road. 
Father Peglar set up various 
pit-stops to fix bicycles, 

pick up the dead, and revive the living. In spite of the dan- 
gers which included drought and famine, some of the in- 
trepid team managed to make it to Stratford in time to 
catch the evening train home. 




The most profitable venture for the United Way Cam- 
paign was the Starve-a-thon organized by the 12-2 class. 
They were well sponsored by the parents and students in 
the school and they raised 1800 dollars in total. Grade 1 2 1 
had a bike a thon as well. Grade 1 1-2 contributed in the 

form of a skate-a-thon. 

The total efforts of all 
the classes clearly show the 
determination and school 
spirit that was present 
throughout the campaign. 
As a result of the 6600 
dollars that the Senioi 
school raised we were a- 
warded a free concert organ- 
ized by CHUM. The concert 
featured Tease. Moxy and 
April Wine. The concert was 
held at the Sheraton Centre. 
St. George's College has 
won the United Way con- 
cert by CHUM three years 
in a row. 

It was a fine effort by 
everyone, and let's hope that next year will be even better.

DEBATING 



The St. George's Debating Society, under the paternal 
care of Father Pegler and the harried administration of Andy 
Spears has muddled through another year. Many of the 
school team's efforts were last-ditch affairs; however, the 
many fine orators of our College performed wonderfully 
under the circumstances. The team of Spears, Dingwall and 
Roberts defended themselves admirably (if I do say so my- 
self) against teams from St. Michael's and Havergal, winning 
the former. The school's first invitation debate at the school 
against a superlative team from St. Clement's was enjoyed by 
all - but unfortunately we lost. 

1 977 proved to be a better year. In spite of several last- 
minute difficulties (like trying to get a third speaker), the 
team of Harvey and Roberts strode courageously into the 
enemy territory of St. Andrew's to participate in their tour- 
nament. With the resolution "Canada Must Decentralise in 



Order to Survive" clearly in mind, the St. George's team 
won over St. Charles and also triumphed over a formidable 
team from North Toronto. 

The second annual Masters/Students debate was a real 
crowd-pleaser. The team of Messrs. Kerr, Pegler and 
Storey proved beyond a doubt that "Facial Hair Should be 
Outlawed". Whether they will obey their own legislation is 
another matter, however! The Roberts Harvev-Jansen 
Trophv will be duly awarded to them on Prize Day. 

The supply of debating titles for future years is formid- 
able. The debaters leaving this year have nothing but happv 
memories of both victories and losses. Debating is slowly but 
surely establishing itself as an integral part of the life 
George's College.

CHOIR 



As can be seen in the few preceeding pages the choir had quite an 
extensive tour to England last June and plans are already developing 
for another tour next year. 

For the choir, the 1976-77 season was very busy and successful. 
The "A" Choir including the men sang at the opening of the United 
Appeal Campaign. At Christmas the choir sang at the Museum tor the 
third year in a row. We were invited to sing at the Woman's Canadian 
Club Christmas luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel, where the 
choir had the pleasure to perform for the Honorable Pauline McGibbon 
and the wife of the Governor General, Madame Leger. 

The annual service of lessons and carols was sung at St. Pauls Church 
on December 15. Other events were: May 6th- school confirmation 
service. May 17th- the whole school music program performed a concert 
at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. June 4th- the "A" choir sang at 
Trinity College chapel. Finally, certain boys sang at several weddings 
throughout the year, and the "A" choir participated at Prize Day by 
singing in St. James Cathedral. 

Credit goes to all those members of the choir who worked hard 
in making it a success this year. Special thanks goes to Mr. White and 
Mr. Bradley for their musical instruction. Thanks is also extended to

The major purpose tor the banquet, the presentation of 
athletic awards, commenced.

the first Annual Athletic Banquet 

was held at the Toronto-Don Vally 

Holiday Inn. One hundred and 

forty-five people assembled to enjo) 

the evenings activities. The procedings 

got underway with the saying of 

grace, by Father Pegler, and a toast 

to the Queen by Mr. Wright. 

Upon the conclusion ot dinner, Mr. McMastcr 

Mr. Jim Hunt gave a very informative 

talk about Team Canada in Vienna. 

His remarks were followed by a 

question and answer period that was 

Mr. McMaster closed the evenings procedings. backed by 
the gentle strains of a rock band next door, with the follow 
ing: "Athletics are a means to an end and the end is the de- 
velopment ot people, people who find lite enjoyable, mean 
ingful and worthwhile. These kinds of people are individuals 
who have acquired enough skills to be able to function with 
others. They have enough skills to know themselves, enough 
skills to be a person identifiable and acceptable by others, 
and by themselves. They are people who have sufficient 
capacity to be responsible tor both themselves and others. 
This then gentlemen is what your athletic department is all 
about. Thank you." 

Thus ended the first Athletic Banquet. 




THE FORMAL 



Sat. May 14 

Toronto (PB) - Last night for the 
first time in the brief history of the St. 
George's college Formals there was a 
sold out house. All of the one hundred and 
fifty tickets were sold within a week of 
being put on sale. 

The SRO crowd had a fantastic time 
in the Upper Canada Room of the Roya 
York Hotel dancing to the music of 
Belfast. 

This electric band played everything 
from fiftie's rock and roll to the latest 
top forty hits. 

Those who either couldn't find room 
on the dance floor or were just too tired 
to dance could be found at the hors 
d'oeuvres table feeding their faces with 
an assortment of unidentifiable foods 
reputed to be, seal flipper pie, grits, 
possum stew, hocks, rattlesnake steaks, 
chitlens, and other vittles. 

Around one A.M. this morning things 
came to a close. The young couples could 
be seen heading off to pursue the break- 
fast parties and other activities that would 
keep them occupied until sunup.

MENS ASSOCIATION DINNER 







This year's Men's Association Dinner was again expertly hosted by the 
Rosedale Golf Club. A tasty dinner of roast beef was served, and the bar was a 
centerpoint of activity both before and after the dinner. Highlights of the 



evening included a toast to the Queen by 
Mr. Wright, an excellent speech by 
Dr. David Ouchterlony, the Gardner 
dominated raffle draw, and the honour- 
ing of the Grade thirteen graduating 
class. Afterwards the students had an 
informative rap session with some of 
the teachers present- until the Rosedale 
staff subtly suggested an end to the affair 
by turning out the lights. Most im- 
portant, a true St. George's spirit 
dominated the evening, and contributed 
to its outstanding success.

MEMO TO ALL STAFF MEMBERS FROM THE PRINCIPAL 

Subject: Adjustment of Timetable 



(Written by Fr. K.W. Scott) 



Owing to Christmas exams and the necessity of accommodating special rehearsals by the choir, the following changes in 
the timetable will be put into effect commencing Monday of this week: 

1. Art periods for Grades VII- 1 and VI1-2 (periods 7 and 8) will be interchanged with Geography and French (periods 3 
and 4), except for boys who normally take swimming, hockey, gym or music in periods 3 and 4. This will also necessitate 

the interchange of periods 1 and 5, so that, in effect, period 6 now becomes period 3, period 7 becomes period 4, and period 5 
becomes period 1, except for Grades IV and V. 

2. Grade IV will eat lunch as soon as they arrive, or at the latest 8:45 a.m., and instead of normal lunch period will have 
art, gym or C.K. depending on whether they are in A Choir, B Choir or Choir. Boys not in any of these choirs may go home 
right after lunch, unless they are on clean-up duty, in which case they will report to Mr. Barlow at 3:30 in Room 21. (Note: 
No. 1 dress will be worn on Mondays and Wednesdays instead of on Friday this week, Sunday is cancelled.) 

3. Grade VI: Boys in Grade VI will follow the normal timetable for the week —except on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. 
Thursday and Friday. Boys who are in A or B Choir will be excused from hockey and C.K. but must write their Science exam at 
6:00 a.m. on Monday and their Social Studies exam on Tuesday at Midnight. There will be no lunch period for Grade VI any 
day this week. Fr. Scott will supervise a special study period on Monday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for Grade 6. This means 
that the normal chapel service at 8:45 on Monday will have to be conducted by Grade 4's class captain. 

4. Other than the foregoing, the schedule of classes will proceed as normal. 

5. Please note that no staff member will be allowed to be sick this week. 

6. if any of the above is not clear, please consult with me in my office some time after the holidays, 

J. Tansey - Junior School Principal
