One of the main purposes of these Tournaments is the development and display of comradery and fellowship. We believe that it should be one of the main aims of the Colleges each to outdo the other in the cordiality with which it welcomes its adversary. This is a very hard thing to bring about during the first few years. What happens during these first few years will profoundly affect the attitude taken in the future. For this reason we suggest that definite aims and goals should be decided on now.
At last year's Tournament. Cadets depended mostly on the dance. It was under the auspices of the College. The R. An attempt was made to make the R M e. Cadets familiar with the vJrious traditions that have developed about the College.
In addition. We do not mean to imply that. We do thin k. This would mean that although o nl y a minority of the chaps can attend the awayfrom-home games.
It also means that the goodwi ll will pyramid itself. From the viewpo int of competi ti o n we feel that it wou ld be most advisable to make some sort of final decision on the sports that will comprise the Tournament. This we feel is necessary to ensure that a tradition. It is also advisable. It would also allow the Physical Training Staffs to look ahead in so far as setting up the annual sports schedu le is concerned.
We think that Basketball. Boxing and Gymnastic Apparatus should be on the table of events. It is both evident and unanimous that such things as Drill and P. Now that Royal Roads has hockey facilities. Boxing is a spo rt in which both Colleges can well be represented. Swimming is a curri cular activity in both Colleges. All in all. The sta ndard of the games must be held high.
April Graduation Day. More than the usual number of competitors seemed absorbed in the early-morning sport of racing for a vacant wash basin However. Between strokes of the razor and the manipulation of combs.
Slack Party. Col wood run. Nor dId we suspect in our sweet innocence that we were to wear running sh oes when we partooh of our guided "tou rs" of the gro und s next day Yes indeed.
It was only two short years away: o nl v two short vears. Around Ihe circle. Halted and stood at case. A fresh, cool breeze was blowing, rustling through the tall. Up to attention came the Cadets.
To the soft. In what will undoubtedly become a traditional tri-service procedure. F March Past. A burning pride in College and self. All that remained was the climactic ceremony wherein the Senior Term would officially be graduated, and the Juniors would achieve the enviable status of Senior Cadets. The graduating Cadet Wing Commander gave the order. The graduating class was permanently dismissed.
Up went their caps in three rousing cheers for the College. Ex-Cadets: the Graduation ceremony itself was over. What a weird and wonderful feeling. You couldn't have quenched the gaiety and high spirits common to all at that mommt. Although Graduation itself was over, Graduation Day was only just starting and a busy program was due to follow. Immediately following the parade, the Cadets showed the result of months of "geauping" under Lt.
Mylrea's direction. On the upper playing field they staged a well-disciplined precision display of physical training, matwork and box-horse work. To the accompaniment of the Navy Band, about Cadets gracefully and rhythmically per-. Two groups very commendJbly executed several exercises on the mats and high box. Later that afternoon the Cadets Joined their guests in the castle and outdoors on the terrace for pleasant chatter and afternoon tea.
Cadets and their ladies as they stepped out before the main doors of the Cadet Block The building was alive with coloured lights. The moon never shone on a gayer scene. Light-hearted music echoed from the streamer-decorated Quarterdeck. Shaped in fragrant yellow roses. All evening. Navy and Air Force blue uniforms. During the evening we were greatly amused in seeing the instructors take a merciless mimicking at the hands. All the officers war-ted to get into the act. All good things must come to an end.
Such was the case with this wonderful even in g. Sadly enough. It meant the parting of friends and the departure from a life which had come to mean much to all of us. Sometimes it had been a trying life especially on seventy-five cents a week. But those moments are short-lived. Years from now we will look back on the satisfying fullness of our training.
We leave Royal Roads to go out into the world into the Services. Wherever duty may take us we shall carry with us. Won by Cadet J. Won by Cadet 1. Wishart H. Won by Cadet K. Won by Cadet H.

Granted, that at times Joe Laudenbach's "Slow Boat to China" record and the " rumble can" had made life miserable for us, we nevertheless had fond memories of "ye olde ash tray with the door. The Senior Gunroom is an improvement on the Junior Gunroom in that it is larger and is exposed to the elements. The fourth wall. How ever, the Seniors feel little malice towards the Juniors.
Perhaps this is a misleading conception of the gunroom and perhaps we did feel some malice. The big event took place on the night of Oerober 5th. Almost the entire Senior Term at tended and a surprising number brought along members of the opposite sex. We appreciated the presence of several of the Staff and their wives and also Mr. Pidgeon , of Victoria. Maybe Stan Riddell can suppl y the answer. Our first mid-term dance as Juniors was brought to mind and we all thought of those of our term who were unable to be with us this year.
We would all like to see Joe May ask the O. W for a cigarette and a match agaIn. October passed and with it came the rugger season. A contract seems to be made with R.
It was at this critical time that Tino Cotaras left us to occupy a bed in Vancouver's Shaughnessy Ilospitai. George's School's First Team. Tino's mishaps imposed a great strain on Roger Sweeny and Fred :'rickard. Bobb ' Bull had a slmliar misfortune on the rugger field. Iccover '. Early in December a mess dInner was "staged" for us Major Ross filled the mess president's chair apologies to the naval types.
A number of naval "types. Smyth and Stan Riddell and supported by the X. O who hid behind his foliage to avoid detection. The result was a very enjoyable and memorable evening. The mess dinner took place at the beginning of a period of chaos. Henri Dessaullcs did not always reply to the call for "a fourth for bridge" :I Sllre sign that attendance in the gunroom was falling off However.
At noon on December 15th. The gun room ash trays rapidly fi l led up and "S laughter on Tenth Ave. Joe Laudenbach took his scat beside the radio and cou ld be found there day and night. After studying the vicissitudes of a radio for two years. The afternoon was spent in gail y decorating the quarter-deck and the gun room for the dance to be held the following night. Our poor. This result was achieved by a spotlight skilfully placed to illuminate his more prominent features-particularly his perenlllal snarl.
The other more important feature was the lighting effect which was a definite attraction on the night of the dance. When we say "lighting effect" we mean the equiva lent of a penumbra cast by a candle at 50 feet. As one of our number was heard to comment. Padre Edwards' efforts. J am sure we will all remember sitting in the candle-lit.
A mutual sense of pride. This we did. The events of the past two days and the leave to come were discussed. Several Junior Cadets somehow gained admission to the gunroom. Wes is from Montreal. Later that night one of our most talented types was seen inslructing a Junior in the art.
Dan only showed his teeth in a magnificent snarl. We had never thought of Dan as "a second story man" before. The following morning chaos again reigned. There was bedding to rerum, packing to be done. The gun room had a reputation for devouring things left in it by unthinking Cadets. This was typical of our chaotic life. The Spring Term commenced. After study hours it was general practice to meet in the gunroom to discuss the problems which we had to face.
There were serious parleys and often conclusions were reached and acted upon concerning such matlers as "did we need extra instruction in some phase of the work. Much lhanks go from the Senior Term to Bill Sulli-.
Nevertheless, we all fclt free to think and express ourselves. This year the Padre followed a very popular plan In presenting his weekly talks by discussing onc of the "Ten Commandments" cach night.
A new diversion was introduced in the Spring 1 erl11 which enveloped those of least resistance and eventually made thcm its slaves. Bill Nelles. Stan Pepler. Mr Stewart and F L Deane took their punishment like men.

We hear that Eric will be back next year and we wish him the best of luck. Bob Swartman informs us that his tasks were of a more menial nature "pulling chocks. The boys at Valcartier brought back vivid descriptions of the Quebec beauty spots. Bob Peacock still tells of his harrowing experiences there. At Camp Borden, "Herby" Pitts. Ralph Knowles and "Ric" Bell spent an eventful summer cutting each other's hair.
At Sum merside, George Lowes. John Arnold. The navy "types" went to sea in the summer and from al l reports Alaska isn't quite so uninteresting as they had previously supposed. We hear that at one time during the cruise someone yelled "Land ho'" and "Willy" Chaster, guided by automatic action retortcd with "Stand at ease.
Two years at the College have produced rich friendships and a mutual comradeship 'V. T should be noted here. Most of the first part of Summer Training was spent in the lecture room.

However, although our mess deck bulged slightly at the seams ac tuall y burst at one seam, as was proved by a disconcerting stream of water. As one Cadet laconically entered In hiS log : " Left harbour. Five days passed, in fact. On the sixth day we had our first glimpses of the far no rth-Kod iak Island which wc sighted carlyon a cl ea r. Such were our dreams of the far Northland : the romantic polar wastes; ice floes; reindeer ; adventure!
Buck up, my son, what do you think this is, anyway , a singing commercial for the Polar Bear Cafe? Shocked surprise was on all our faces as we took in the lush greenness of the land, The summer was in full swing, and all the flora seemed panicking to make the most of their little sunlight.
Several intrepid characters went for "a nip up a hill"; others went fishing, and saw a beaver. At on Sunday we slipped and proceed ed to sea, bound for our next port of call. Throughout this leg of our journey we carried on our normal training, in flat calm weather, with only the gentle Pacific rollers to rock some of us to sleep, and cause others to rock with heads in hands, We did our one gunnery shoot on the next Tuesday "a direc tor is a master sight situated aloft clear of smoke and spray" , the Seniors blasting away with four inch, and the Juniors shooting at a ridiculously small red parachute, which kept mys teriously moving anywhere but in the line of fire At about on Thursday we arived Jl1 Juneau, a large -scale repetition of Kodiak i.
Again we saw the sights. A group went to see Mendenhall Glacier. It was strange. A telling of these incidents would not be complete without mention of the fishing derby. Ivlad fishermen dangled old pieces of the morn ing's breakfast in the sea and hooked the mon sters of the deep- huge finned creatures. JUSt as he was being presented with the prize, an unnamed character produced a two and three quarter pound starfish which, as the judge rightly concluded, was perfectly legitimate.
