Xorb IRoberte' Hast Message to tbe public Scbools, There is not one of you boys who may not take his part in this great struggle, and now is the time to show what you are made of. In the days, weeks, and months ahead of us there are bound to be many dark hours. Great calls will be made upon our courage and patience. Let each one of you then, who for one reason or another, is not able to take up arms for your country, determine to fight as courageously and as doggedly at home. Show a cheerful countenance to the world, and never let others see you give way to despondency. Preach to all around you the " glorious r i g h t " of this war, in which we had to take our part or else for ever hide our heads in shame. Be careful to spread no rumours or gossip, and be

kind, gentle, and unselfish to all. Cheer others on and help them to bear hardships, privations, and sorrow, in the spirit of true patriotism. T o those who think in their disappointment that because they cannot fight they are useless, I say that they are missing a great opportunity. There is work to be done for all, and there are duties to be performed by all, quite as arduous, and quite as important as the actual fighting in the field. The very youngestboy amongst you can make his influence felt, and although these fights and struggles must go on unseen and unrecorded, those who take part in them will find their reward in the knowledge that they too have done their share towards upholding the standard of British courage, endurance, and honour, in the hour when Britain most had need of them.

no rivalry or competition ; no self-advertisement. The glory is the nation's, and in this national glory we all share. There can be no division of such spoil. We must be content and proud to know that the present generation shows no decline, but is quitting itself in a manner worthy of those who have gone before. Let us, therefore, follow the counsel of the "Wykehamist." Let us merge-self-interest, whether of class or creed or faction, in a wider and nobler patriotism, and let us acclaim with pride the noble deeds, not only of our own sons, but of all, whatever their rank or creed or race, who are fighting for the flag.

Speech Da& 1014, public Schools anb the War. " Everthing has been merged in Nationality. We have given our all to King and Country. Party, Creed, and Race, all flow in the same stream. In view of this, it is well-nigh impossible that we should have that unseemly advertisement of the Public Schools in the Press- school vying with school in publishing for the public eye its Roll of Honour, as was unfortunately the c^e in the South African War." Thus the " Wykehamist." Wise and timely words of warning from our oldest Public School : words with which we are wholly in accord. In this great war, where none are fighting for a party, but all are fighting for the state, men are making the supreme sacrifice, not for themselves, ncjt for their school, not for their native towns or provinces, but for their country, in defence of national honour, national liberty, national existence. As a father is proud, so may in lesser degree a school feel a pride in its sons ; but it must restrain that pride, and must renounce all claim to reflected glory. It may inscribe on its scroll the names and deeds of its heroic sons ; but there must be no blatant trafficking in fame ; no measuring of merit ;

•Speech Day (the first at Corio) was held on Wednesday, the 16th of December, in the Bracebridge Wilson Hall. The prizes were distributed by His Excellency the Governor, Sir Arthur Stanley, and the Archbishop of Melbourne presided. On the platform besides were the Headmaster and the following members of the School Council :—Mr. W. T. Manifold (chairman), The Rev. W. S. Hollow, Capt. J. P. Chirnside C.M.G., and Messrs E. A. Austin, H. A. Austin, H. P. Dougless, J. Turnbull, W. F. Volum, A. G. White, and Lieut.-Col. Garrard (secretary). The athletic prizes were distributed by Mrs. Donald MacKinnon. After the Recessional Hymn had been sung and prayers read by the Rev. H. S. Hollow, The Archbishop of Melbourne opened the proceedings. He said—" The day was memorable in the history of the school. It was the first prize-giving in the new buildings, and it was also the first public ceremony at the school since it.came to Corio. If they cast their thoughts back, many of them would remember the afternoon in April, 1913, when Lord Denman laid the foundation stone of the new school ; he was not able to be present as he was then in England. The new school had been taken possession of some months ago by the

boys and masters without any public ceremony at all. In fact it was necessary to hurry in order to get everything ready to begin the work. To the council he desired to express his unbounded admiration for what they had done and the spirit in which they had worked H e had many councils in the diocese of Melbourne and in the metropolis, but there was no better or more enterprising council than that of the Geelong Grammar School. He had never known them yet to make any mistake in the policy they had adopted. At present only three houses had been erected, but he was told there was an immediate necessity for a fourth house. The completed plan contemplated the erection of ten houses, and some day or other there would be a school capable of accommodating 450 boarders besides day scholars. Thai was the scheme which was in the mind of the members of the council. During the few months that the school had been establishd at Corio, there had been a splendid advance, and there was every prospect that their highest hopes would be realised in the immediate future. It was too late in the day to talk about the policy of removing the school, because the most timid and hesitating person, who thought it might not be wise, must be convinced by what had been done, and by the success accompanying the change. It was by far the best plan to have a large Public School out in the country, and make it a selfcontaining community. The boys attending the school ought to be proud of it, and he knew they were. There was only one note to be sounded—that of con* gratulation and hope. What had been done called for congratulation, and there was hope for what was proposed to be doirc in the immediate future. The gathering was graced by the presence of His Excellency the State Governor. Entering the school by the door there were two stones, one on each side. One was brought from the old building to recall the laying of the stone of the old school by the then Governor of Victoria, Sir Henry Barkly, the other was the stone of the new school laid by the Governor-General of Australia, Lord Denman. It was very fitting, therefore, that on the occasion of the first prize-giving they should have the Governor of Victoria present. Some

of them knew that Sir Arthur Stanley was connected with a family in England which had played an important part in educational matters. H e knew the Governor was deeply interested in the spread of education and the welfare of schools, and none was more fitted than Sir Arthur Stanley, not''only in his official position, but in his personal fitness, to distribute the prizes. The Headmaster then read his statement as follows: Events in our School history have moved with great rapidity during the last two years. At Speech Day two years ago our Council announced that the work of building the new school was about to be taken in hand. On April 3rd last year the Foundation Stone was laid by Lord Denman. Last Speech Day we took leave of the old school. During the Christmas Holidays the great exodus was accomplished, and we crossed from the other side of Corio Bay to enter upon our life in the new buildings to which we had looked forward with much hopeful anticipation. The removal was effected easily and smoothly, and, in spite of some difficulties which were inevitable at that early stage, we soon settled down to our new conditions of life. By the energy and enterprise of the School Council these difficulties have been overcome. Great improvements and extensions have been carried out, and we have now a school which, in its buildings and equipment, can compare favourably with the chief Public Schools, not only in Australia, but in the old country. Visitors, who make an inspection of the buildings and grounds this afternoon for the first time, will be surprised, I feel sure, that so great an enterprise has been accomplished in less than two years. The advantages of the new school will be evident to all. Here we have full opportunity for carrying out our ideals unhampered by lack of room and free from outside distractions. Our first year in> the new buildings has been marked by sound and steady progress and development in all branches of our school life. Physically the boys have improved beyond all knowledge, and the fact that there have been few cases of illness in the school is a tribute to the value of Corio as a health resort. With our entrance into the new school has come a


6

THE coRtAN

Dec.'U

large increase in our numbers, and there has been a notable advance in the proportion of young boys entering the school. During the present year more than eighty boys have joined the school, and for the first time in its existence the numbers exceed two hundred. From the entries I have already received, there is a probability of further increase next year. Whilst the number of day scholars has remained practically stationary, there has been an increase of sixty per cent, in the number of boarders. At a time when the advantages of school life away from town are obtaining a wider recognition, it is a matter of some surprise to me that more Geelong parents, now that the opportunity is offered them, do not send their boys away into the country for the whole day. A separate Junior House was established at the beginning of the year. Under the charge of Mr. Jennings, whose able and zealous work has been invaluable, it has proved an unqualified success. The good work which is being done in the Junior House will do much to strengthen the Senior Houses in the years to come. At present a part of Manifold House has been set apart for the Juniors, but with the large and increasing number of younger boys a Junior House, distinct from the other houses, will soon be imperative. It is the intention of the Council to proceed with the building of this House as soon as the means arc forthcoming. At the last Junior Public Examination of the Melbourne University, certificates were obtained by N. F. H. Beggs, C. E. G. Beveridge (who passed in eight subjects with four distinctions), D. C. Black (who passed in eight subjects with three distinctions), I. S. Black, J. V. Fairbairn, A. C. W. Fisken, H. S. Furnell, F. A. Ingram, F. H. S. Mair (who passed in eight subjects with seven distinctions—which, I believe, is a record for the school in this examination), R. Simson and C. R. T. Thomas. Junior Commercial Certificates were obtained by G. K. Burston, A. L. Chomley, T. H. Clayton, and R. L. C. Hunt. Five other boys passed in four or more subjects. In the Junior Public Examination 36 distinctions were won as compared with 14 obtained in the previous year. At the Senior Public Examination the following

qualified for Matriculation :—J. V. McNair, who passed the complete examination ; H. G. Furnell, R. L. Michaelis and K. C. Webb-Ware, each of whom passed in four subjects ; A. C. W. Fisken and C. G. Mair. In the same examination J. S. Cook obtained 3rd Class Honours" in Chemistry, and passed in Physics and English, and R. E. Higgins, who qualified for matriculation last year, passed in Latin, French, and English, and completed his certificate. These results, particularly those of the Senior Public Examination, are a considerable improvement on those of the previous year, and show a distinct advance in the standard of work in the Upper School. In the recent examination for Entrance Scholarships at Ormond College, J. S. Cook obtained a minor resident scholarship. Cook has also been awarded the Cuthbertson School Leaving Scholarship, which is of the value of £ 4 0 per annum for three years. The School owes much to Mr. Cuthbertson, and, as this is the first time this Scholarship has been awarded, it may not be out of place to remind you that it was founded by his liberality. The School lias now two leaving scholarships—the Mary Armytage and the Cuthbertson—each of which is tenable for three years, and consequently becomes vacant as a rule once in three years. A third scholarship is needed so that one may be available every year. And here there is scope for the munificence of the private benefactor. If some benefactor would provide the funds for establishing such a scholarship, he would be doing a great service to the School, and would earn the gratitude of generations to come. When times are again prosperous, and other matters of more pressing importance have received attention, I trust that the stream of benefactions will flow in the direction of the establishment of School scholarships. Our first two and only candidates for cadetships at the Royal Military College, Duntroon—A. N. Dyson and F. Plowman — were both successful. Dyson was second in Australia, out of 33 successful candidates. Plowman, after a somewhat hasty preparation, gained the 10th place on the list recently issued, being 5th amongst the Victorian candidates.

The Diocesan Board of Education honour certificates for Divinity were won by C. E. G. Beveridge, P. E. F. Chirnside, J. S. Cook, C. G. Mair, M. Shannon, R. Simson, C. R. T. Thomas, A. A. Vines, C. H. White, and K. C. Webb-Ware, in the Senior Division ; C. H. B. Adamson, J. K. Angas, W. L. Carrington, C. Hardy, W. P. Hopkins, L. J. Reynolds, R. E. WebbWare, D. A. White, in the Intermediate Division ; and P. L. Brown, C. E. Glasfurd, and A. H. E. White, in the Junior Division. Referring to the work of the School in this examination, the Dean of Melbourne writes—" I must congratulate your School upon its most creditable appearance in the Senior Honour List. Ten of your boys get their certificates. I believe it is the first time any boys' school has done so well." Several important changes have taken place in the constitution of the staff, which was strengthened at the beginning of the year by the appointment of four new masters. Mr. E. V. Butler, B.A., Trinity College, Melbourne, late Head Master of Camperdown Grammar School, and Senior English Master at Melbourne Grammar School, came to us as House Master of Cuthbertson House. Mr. C. R. Franklin, B.A., late Scholar of Pembroke College, Cambridge, was appointed Senior Mathematical Master and House Tutor of Manifold House. Mr. C. H. Brewer, M.A., of Clare College, Cambridge, late Science Master of Brentwood Grammar Schol, joined the staff as Science Master, and Mr. R. G. Jennings, of Melbourne Grammar School, as House Master of the Junior House. At the end of the first term, Mr. C. M. McKenzie, who did much useful work for the School for several years as Commercial Master, left us to take an appointment in Western Australia. He has been succeeded by Mr. B. G. Davey, whose practical experience is proving of great value in the teaching of his special subject. I regret to announce the approaching departure of two of our number. Mr. Harvey, who has been Senior .Science Master for nearly three years, is resigning his mastership with the intention of entering the legal profession. Mr. Franklin has recently received an appointment as a Senior Instructor at the Naval College, and is leaving to take up his work at Jervis

Bay at the beginning of next year. Both have done valuable work, not only in the Class Room, but in many departments of our out-of-school life, and the best wishes of masters and boys will go with them. During this year our Chapel Services on Sunday have been held in the Entrance Hall, which, in spite of obvious disadvantages, has served the purpose as a temporary chapel better than many at first anticipated. Our Early Communion Services have been held in an upper room of the tower. To this expedient there have been serious drawbacks, not the least of which is the impossibility, owing to want of space, of holding a Communion Service in which all boys in the School who have been confirmed may take part. W c look forward, therefore, to the completion in the near future of that portion of the School Chapel which is being built. The contractor, who has proved himself to be a man of his word, assures me that the work will be finished by February. The chapel ought therefore to be furnished and ready for consecration within two or three months of that time. The Foundation Stone of the School was laid on April 3rd, 1913, that of the Chapel on April 3rd, 1914. It might be found possible to ask the Archbishop to consecrate the Chapel on April 3rd, 1915. W e are indebted to Mrs. Faulkiner, Mrs. Ian Black, the Archbishop, and Mr. Stuart Black, and others, for generous gifts towards the furnishing of the Chapel. But to furnish the Chapel appropriately will entail considerable expenditure, and I know the School Council will be grateful to others who may be disposed to help in any of the many ways open to them. One of the great possessions of our School has been in the wealth of friends it has ever had ready and willing to serve to its welfare. Time does not permit me to dwell at length upon the numerous out-of-school activities of the past year. The organization of the games, mainly owing to the untiring efforts of my colleagues, has witnessed a notable advance during the year. Much has been done to improve the standard of play, particularly amongst the Juniors, and the House Competitions have been a great incentive to keenness and enthusiasm. In our contests with the other Public Schools


10

THE CORIAN

Dec: 14

the great event of the year has been the winning of the Headship of the River at the Regatta held last May. Not for sixteen years has this honour fallen to the School, although year by year we have sent up crews who have given a good account of themselves. W e congratulate the crew and Lieut.-Col. Garrard, to whose careful coaching the School rowing owes so much, on a great victory. In football we have not done well, although the team trained hard and practised regularly. We have, however, won three of the five cricket matches—those against Geelong College, Xavier College, and Wesley College— the first three Public School matches played on our new ground. The match with Xavier College was won by more than an innings. W e have a long way to go yet in Athletic Sports before we achieve our ambitions, but at the last Public School Sports our running showed a marked improvement, and we had the satisfaction of securing twice the number of points we obtained last year. Amongst the honours which have fallen to Old Geelong Grammarians during the past year there are two which arc outstanding—one in Church and one in State. The election and consecration of Dr. Reginald Stephen as Bishop of Tasmania, and the appointment of the Hon. Donald Mackinnon as AttorneyGeneral in the present T,i1>er;t1 Ministry, arc distinctions of which the School may be justly proud. Although in the years gone by the School cannot boast of many who have entered the sacred ministry of the Church, it is a remarkable fact that out of six Anglican Bishops, who have received their education in Australia, the School can claim two,Bishop Stretch and Bishop Stephen, whilst Bishop Armstrong ,of Wangaratta, was for some time a member of the School. The School is proud of the ready response which has been made by our Old Boys to the Empire's Call to Arms. At least. 75 Old Geelong Grammarians here or in England, have volunteered for active service abroad. A crisis like the present brings out all that is best in our national life, and we rejoice that so many at much self-sacrifice have gone forth to take their part in the great conflict. The readiness

Dec. '14

THE CORIAN

11

with which men answer to the call made upon them in the time of the Empire's need is the best test of the stuff they are made of and of the training they have received. The sense of duty and responsibility, the subordination of personal interest—that is the very essence of the .Public School spirit, which now takes a wider range and manifests itself in devotion to the service of the country. All generations capable of bearing arms are well represented, and as was to be expected the younger generation of Old Boys have freely offered themselves. Three of our best boys of this year—Gerald Burstou (who rendered splendid service to the School as Senior Prefect), JohnWebster (Captain of Ijhe Boats and Stroke of the crew which rowed Head of the River), and George Douglass (who would have been a strength to the School next year as Prefect and House Captain), volunteered soon after war was declared, and are now in Egypt with the First Expeditionary Force. It is a source of gratification that of nine boys, who have been appointed School Prefects during the last three years, and who have left School, seven have been accepted for active service. The other two are anxious to go, but cannot get away. Our present boys, too, are doing what they can to bear their share of the burden which has fallen upon the Empire. Since the outbreak of the war they have given a proportion of their weekly pocket money, and in spite of many other calls upon them, a useful contribution has been made to the Patriotic Funds. Some time ago they unanimously decided to receive bronze medals instead of the usual prizes for athletics, and to send the balance to the War Funds. The sacrifice of self to the common good, the doing of something for their King and Country, has been pleasant and ennobling, and I think that not a few boys are realizing in a practical manner the great truth that it is more blessed to give, than to receive. This idea of Imperial duty, of common service, which we find to-day throughout the length and breadth of our Empire, makes us disregard the fears of those who say because Rome fell our still greater Empire is bound to fall too. Our Empire and its heritage have been built up on the Public School spirit, which is the envy and admira-


12

THE CORIAN

tion of foreign nations. So long as this spirit is manifested in our people, so long as our Public Schools are true to their great work, and lead the way along the path of loyalty, devotion, and patriotism, we need have no anxiety for the future of our Empire. In conclusion^ let me say how much I value this opportunity of acknowledging the great debt I owe to my colleagues for the unstinted support and enthusiasm they have brought to bear on the manysided activities of school life. During this first year in the new school their work has been unusually exacting, and serious demands have been made upon their time, which have been loyally and unselfishly met. And it is a great pleasure to me to be able to bear witness to a high standard of conduct and bearing on the part of the boys. Sir Arthur Stanley, before distributing the prizes, said that like the Archbishop he found he was set down on the programme for an address. His own experience of addresses was that they were usually longer than the audience cared for, and so, like the Archbishop, he would restrict himself to a " few who were prize-winners were looking forward with particular pleasure to receiving their prizes, and those who were non-prize-winners, and he fancied they were the larger number — were looking forward with greater pleasure to applauding those who had won. He had not tlie advantage of the Archbishop in being able to cast his mind back on the history of the school. He could not recollect the time when the school was in (leelong. and when school politics, he supposed, were agitated by the question where to remove and when. All these remarks were excluded from the remarks he would offer them, as he would be engulfed in the Cimmerian bog of ignorance if he addressed them on such matters. Again, perhaps, it would be wise to abstain from recollections of his own school days. Some of them were painful, and probably none of them would be regarded as possessing any great edification for the people. At the luncheon, at which theArchbishop was present, he " reminisced," and inquired of the head master what particular

weapon of torture he used ; it was a subject that in his school days caused him very acute interest indeed. (Laughter.) As to the weapon he used when he reached a position in which he inflicted, but did not suffer pain himself, it was a subject perhaps, that was not suitable for such an occasion. He would pass by it regretfully ; he could not tell the boys of the school exactly what he did and what was done to him as a schoolboy. (Laughter.) No doubt they were more law-abiding or less easily found out than in his time at Eton. When he saw the school colours—the old light blue which he was proud to recognise as the colours of the school—he felt as if he were once again in th« upper school at Eton, and was once again present at the speech clay with all the ceremony and glorification which they indulged in then in the old school, and which they here no doubt also indulged in. They then claimed at Iiton as was claimed here perhaps, that theirs was the first and best school in the country ; that their traditions were high traditions, and if they did not live up to them they tried hard to ; they also claimed that their school buildings were the best of any school in the world. Here they might make the same claim with equal justification, as the school buildings in Corio were not to be rivalled by any in the whole of Australia. The school had recently been removed from its old home and brought out into the open spaces in Corio. Physiologists told them that one's body changed entirely once in every seven years ; therefore, what was himself here seven years ago, had vanished into carbonic acid gas and various waste products. Those who had read science would no doubt follow him when he indulged in a little science. He could not entirely believe it, for he had not seen that complete change in himself which scientists would lead him to believe. If scientists were right and were accurate in telling him that there was nothing left in Arthur Stanley now that was Arthur Stanley ten years ago, he would say that if nothing material was left, yet he was here and still existed the same as ten years ago, he had the spirit— the immaterial part of one's self—which still continued in spite of the material changes. So it was in their school. Though it had changed its ground—it had


14

THE CQRIAN

Dec. '74

left Geelong and come to Corio ; its buildings were different and the houses and classrooms were composed of entirely new material—yet the school was the same as in Geelong ; it still had its soul, its spirit and its traditions. The school was not merely made oi the buildings which composed it, and the masters and boys ; the most important part was its traditions and its history. The traditions were handed down from the boys who first came to the school, and preserved and cherished by those who followed. The Geelong Grammar School was the same as it was before removing to Corio. It still had its traditions. He was informed that the hall in which they were gathered had stood on the old school site, and they thus had brought some part of the old material with them as well as their traditions. One of the foundation stones was laid with whole-hearted enthusiasm 60 years ago, when the school was a newborn enterprise. It was brought out to Corio as a record of what they were, and what they intended to be. It was interesting to note that the first foundation stone was laid by Sir Henry Barkly, Governor of Victoria at that time, while the foundation stone of the newer and—should he say—better school, was laid by Lord Denman, the Governor-General of Australia. That typified the advancement, not merely in the school, but in the great community of Australia. In 1854 Federation, (he imagined), was hardly dreamt of, or if dreamt of it was in the mind of some visionary, who looked forwerd with hardly any hope of seeing the glory of a united Australia. The continent of Australia was then made up of separate States or colonies, as they were then known, and naturally they went to the civic head of the State to which they owed allegiance. In tlie course of time the people of Australia had politically advanced and recognised the advantages of union, and so it was right when the school, though a Victorian school primarily, moved to Corio, that they went to the civic head of the larger conception—the Commonwealth of Australia—to lay the foundation stone. As they got the presiding genius of the Commonwealth to lay the stone, so the school looked afield. He was informed that boys came to the school from the distant State of West

Dec. '14

Australia, and the council looked forward with confidence and certainty to making the school serve, not merely Victoria, but.the whole of the Commonwealth, and drawing from Queensland, Tasmania, West Australia and New South Wales. Maybe in the distant future they would include boys from Australasia as well as Australia. Possibly he was not doing more than visionising by including New Zealand amongst the places from which the school would draw ; the time might come when New Zealand would be part of Australasia. The Empire had been drawn closer together by the war, and federation was in the air. Old boys had been sent to fight the battles of the Empire. Presently they would see the whole of the Empire federating, and uniting in everything that stood for right and justice, and for liberty and freedom. The members of the expeditionary forces had not left to take part in a picnic, nor to widen their minds (though the experience would widen their minds), but had gone to serve at the front because they were imbued with the spirit of determination to right wrong, .to fight the battle of the weak, and to maintain the unity and liberty of the Empire. It was that and that alone that had driven their young men from Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, because the people felt that unless they stood up now for the traditions which belonged to the race, they would gradually sink into a secondary place. , The Geelong Grammar School had sent its quota, and other schools had sent theirs. He congratulated the head master and governing body of the school that the)* were not backward in giving up their very best to the war, in which the united forces of the Empire were fighting on the side of justice and right. Meanwhile the school life went on. They had their contests and their examinations, and were preparing themselves for the coming battle—the battle of life. They were preparing themselves in the playing fields, classrooms, and on the river, to be good citizens, and to aid the Commonwealth and Empire. He desired to congratulate those who had attained distinction in school life ; the head master had reminded them, but he thought they all knew it, that the school was at the head of the river for the present year. The school

had shown it was well able to keep up its end, and anybody coming up against it had a difficult job to undertake. The school was a place for education after all, and did not merely exist for athletic sports, and he understood'the Geelong Grammar School had maintained its position in the educational world. The books before him suggested that many present were deserving of commendation. He desired to •congratulate the school on its masters, and the masters on the school. His Excellency then presented the prizes. The school choir gave a rendering of the song and chorus, " Land of Hope and Glory " (Elgar). The athletic prizes were presented by Mrs. Donald Mackinnon ; as members of the school crew, who were head of the river, came forward to receive their oars, the applause was prolonged. A vote of thanks to Sir Arthur Stanley and Archbishop Clarke and Mrs. Mackinnon, was carried with acclamation on the motion of Mesrs. W. T. Manifold and \V. F. Yolum. The performance of a scene from Sheridan's "Critic" brought the proceedings to an end, and the company dispersed for afternoon tea. (We are indebted to the editor of the " Geelong Advertiser" for reports of the speeches).

School motes. Speech Day was held on Wednesday, the 16th of December, in the Bracebridgc Wilson Hall. The prizes were distributed by His Excellency, the Governor, Sir Arthur Stanley. The School Pastime was held in the Braccbridge. Wilson Hall on Tuesday evening, the 15th of December. The First Expeditionary Force sailed from Melbourne on Wednesday, the 21st of October. It has been decided to postpone for the present the formal opening of the New School Buildings.

The building of the School Chapel is being proceeded with, and is expected to be finished early next term. The new cricket ground (in front of Manifold House) was handed over by the contractor to the School Council on the 1st of November. Unfort*nately, on the same day The Geelong Water Trust prohibited, owing to the dry season, the further use of water through the hose. We are, therefore, at present restricted to the use of cans. The Head Master has this term made the following appointments :—Senior Prefect, A. R. Thomson ; Prefects, C: R. Botterill, G. P. Kay, W . S. Kelly, K. C. Webb-Ware. The School Examinations began on Tuesday, the 1st of December. The Divinity Examinations, which were those of the Diocesan Board of Education, were held in November. The Junior Public and Senior Public Examinations, which also began on the 1st of December, were held this year (for the boys of this School) in the Bracebridge Wilson Hall, and were conducted for the University authorities by the Rev. H . Stanley Hollow. The Cuthbertson Scholarship (for which an endowment of £10qD was left by the late J! L. Cuthbertson) has been awarded to J. S.

A brass in memory of the late Rex Austin has been subscribed for by the boys, and will be erected in the School Chapel. A framed photograph has also been hung in Cuthbertson House. A sum of money amounting to £ 3 9 10s. has been already collected among the boys towards the Patriotic Fund, and has been forwarded to the Mayor of (loclong. The following Lectures have been delivered on Saturday evenings during term :—Rev. A. Cresswell (one of our oldest old boys) on " Some Prehistoric Animals of Australia ; Dr. Harvey Sutton, on " Olympic Games, Old and New," ; The Rev. A. R. Ebbs, on " Palestine and Turkey in Asia." To all these gentlemen the School is greatly indebted. On Sunday morning, the 29th of November, Dr. K. S. Jackson, who was visiting the School before leaving for the war, addressed the boys at morning chapel. Among the preachers at Evening Chapel during term were the following :—Mr. Ed. A. Austin, Rev. A. Cresswell, Rev. H. F. Fowler, Mr. D. J. Seymour, and Canon A. Wheeler. The raiu-guage at the School Cricket Ground has registered from 1st December, 1913, to 1st December, 1914, 7.20 inches. This is, we believe, the lowest record registered. We congratulate C. F. Belcher on the publication of his " Birds of the Gcclong District." The author has during recent years, it will be remembered, contributed a most interesting series of articles to these columns on the same subject. The book has been must favourably reviewed, and will no doubt be greatly appreciated by the bird-lovers in the School.. The Librarian wishes to acknowledge the receipt of a leaving book from E. R. Whitteron, and a gift of books from E. R. Woodhead ; also a gift of books from Mr. W. E. Sargood (for .the Junior House

Fysh, Tummavil, Queensland, to Florence Gertrude, only daughter of Mrs. R. E. Jackson, Belmont, East Melbourne. Learmonth-Salter—-On the 26th August, at St.Alban's Church of England, Armadale, by Rev. E. Denton Fethers, Noel Fulford, eldest son of the late J. R. Learmonth, Ellangowan, Tyrendarra, to Edith Mary, second daughter of Charles Salter, Avon Lodge, Armadale. Cay-Thompson—On t h e 28th October, at the Auburn Presbyterian Church, by the Rev. George Brodie, of Sunshine, G. Clive, only son of the late John Cay, and grandson of the late Hon. G. F. Belcher, of Geelong, to Constance, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ratu Thompson, of " Warranooke," Upper Hawthorn. Cameron—On the 25th June, 1914, at Avoca, Albion, Brisbane, John Cameron, in his 69th year. G. H. Raleigh, who is now a Brevet-Major and a Squadron Commander in the Royal Flying Corps, flew over to France from England soon after the outbreak of the war, arid landed with the squadron under his command at Amiens, on the 13th August. His first letter from the front was marked, " Mauberge Nord, 18th August," so he must have been in the vicinity of Mons. He says his work is mainly directing, but he has found time to do a good deal of reconnaissance work, and this he describes as most fascinating. He adds that the paucity of R. F. Corps casualties has surprised themselves as much as anyone else. W e understand he has been mentioned in despatches, but on this subject his letters are silent. Extract of letter from W. L. Cooke, dated 14th November, 1914.—" This letter will not be censored and consequently will not leave for its destination until we have put some hundreds of miles between us and the port where it will be posted. W e have had a good trip so far. The only rough weather was when

crossing the Bight. W e have, under the circumstances, good quarters ; the food is good and we are on parade only three hours a day. The weather has been very hot, but now, we have crossed the Line it will possibly get cooler. Our work comprises simple exercises, lectures and signalling work. W e have had lectures from members of the Headquarters Staff. There are 38 transports, including N.Z. ships. The " Orvieto," or rather Captain Gordon Smith who is aboard the " Orvieto," is in charge of the whole transport, including the convoy. W e don't know very much as regards our convoy. On leaving Albany, where we coaled, we had H.M.S. Minataur in the lead, a Jap. on the starboard side, " Ihuki," and the " Melbourne "• on port side. The ". S y d n e y " was on one side, and a couple of gun-boats in the rear. Besides tlvs we were told there were Jap. gunboats out-acting as a screen. Before reaching Cocos Islands the "Minataur " left and the " Melbourne " took the lead. Next day the " S y d n e y " steamed away east in the early morning and about 10 a.m. while we were on deck drilling, suddenly the Jap. and the " Melbourne " shot away across our front at tremendous speed, bearing for action at the same time. W h a t followed you will read in a concise form in a printed form I am sending at the same time as this. It is all I know of the affair. I might say that the " Orvieto " picked up a wireless message from Cocos Islands, stating " Strange warship outside harbour, come quickly." They are arranging for inter-company cricket matches, quoits, wrestling, boxing and shooting. W e have orders that no shore leave is to be granted. By the way, when I spoke of the Jap. and the " Melbourne " going off to intercept the "Emden " I might say that they hardly got out out of sight when they returned on receipt of a message from the " Sydney " saying the " E m d e n " had beached herself. W e expect to reach Colombo to-morrow, Sunday, November 15th. C(3py from the "Orvieto" Chronicle, type-written by Y.M.C.A. Field Service department:—"Wireless message 14th November, 1914.—Details of the " Sydney "-" Emden " engagement. The "Sydney" started at 7 a.m. on the 9th inst. At 9.30 she had sighted the enemy; travelling at fi'H speed she was able to get within range in 20 minutes. At the same time she signalled that the chase was steaming

north (in our direction).. At 10-45 the "Sydney" was engaged with the enemy/and at 11.10 the latter had to beach herself on North Cocos to avoid sinking. Her foremast and three funnels were down, but the flag was still flying. The "Sydney" then went after the " Emden's " collier, took'off the crew, and sank her. The "Sydney" then returned to the " Emden," who surrendered. The " Emden" had had time to destroy the wireless station and to cut one of the cables. A second cable was intact, and so, possibly, is the third. All the instruments were destroyed excepting one. This one had been buried, and is in use again. The cable operators deserve much praise for sticking to their posts, and sending out distress signals and for saving instruments."

N. B. de Lancey Forth has recently been promoted to the rank of Lieut.-Colonel. Writing on the 12th of August from the Headquarters of the Arab Battalion, Cedareff,E. Sudan, he says :—" This post is on and guards the Abyssinian Frontier ; a force of 1200 Arabs, composed of Camel Corps, Mounted Infantry, Infantry and Guns, complete in itself, to take the field at three hours' notice. A very fine command, but everything appears small and insignificant, with Europe as it is now. We have all cabled home from here asking to be allowed to join the British Regiments at the front, but this is such an important frontier with big responsibility, I have grave doubts of anyone being allowed." . Eliot Murray, who has for some time been doin£ special constable work at Port Moresby, Papua, is now with the 2nd Expeditionary Force at Broadmeadows. Before he went to Papua he held a commission in the 6th Infantry Regiment, Commonwealth Military Forces. L., E. Travers has completed his course of engineering, arid in the beginning of August passed out of The Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, 7th on the list. Writing from Brompton Barracks, Chatham, on the 4th .October, he says :—" I ought to get out fairly soon as nearly all the young officers senior to us have gone or are going, and as they are sending an extra field company Royal Engineers out to each division, we ought to get some of those with any luck, if not I suppose we will go out with the first of the new army after Christmas."

Hugh M. Conran is Area Officer of 82 A, which has its headquarters at Broken Hill. Writing on the 18th September, he says :â&#x20AC;&#x201D;" We are very busy up here, recruiting for the Expeditionary Forces. I am very much disappointed at not being able to go myself, but am Area Officer here and have to stay at my post. However I have great hopes of going with the 2nd force. I have sent nearly 500 men away from here. They are a good stamp of man, though rafter wild and would follow a leader anywhere." Members of the Royal Australian Garrison Artillery are in the same position as Area Officers. We have heard of several old boys of this branch of the Australian service who are " eating their hearts out" to go to the front, but they have a duty here and in Australia they must remain for the present. C. F. Belcher has accepted an appointment from the British Government as Adviser of Titles and Land Conveyancing, and has his headquarters at Entebbe, Uganda.. Entebbe is situated on the N.W. of Lake Victoria Nyanza, almost on the Equator, at an elevation of 4000 feet above the Lake. The temperature is never much above or below 70 degrees and the nights are cool. He left London the day after war was declared and travelled by the R.M.S. Gascon via the Cape. The voyage was full of alarms and they were fortunate in avoiding the German warship, The Konigsburgh, which was on the look out for tibe Gascon, near Zanzibar. Fortunately timely warning was received from a Hindoo trader and they arrived at Mombasa before the enemy, which was in pursuit, came within range. The journey from Mombasa to Uganda was full of interest and " the scenery the sight of a lifetime." A game reserve on one side of the railway is 200 miles in length and in it he saw zebras, giraffes and numerous kinds of antelopes quite close to the stations. Four days on Lake Victoria Nyanza, followed by a 200-mile journey in the lake steamer, landed him at Entebbe, which he describes as the prettiest place he has seen in his life. Dr. W. H. Godby has been appointed to the staff of the Adelaide General Hospital.

T. H. Lindon is at present the Resident Engineer on one of the railways under construction about 200 miles north of Adelaide. He is very keen to go to the front but his home responsibilities are holding him back for the present. L. C. E. Lindon, who is taking the medical course at the Adelaide University took a 1st class in his 1st year, which he has just completed. He volunteered for both the 1st and 2nd Expeditionary Forces, but was refused as he was not yet nineteen years of age. J. Stanley Hawker is "Jackerooing " on Tintinallogy Station, Wilcannia, N.S. Wales. Tintinallogy is on the eastern side of the Darling, half-way between Wilcannia and Menindie. Writing on the 10th June, he says :—" We are not having a very good time as regards the season. We had a small fall of rain about six weeks ago, but all the grass this brought up is drying off, in fact it has been a drought practically since I have been here. I suppose you have heard of " sitting on a fence and watching the wool grow," well try it in a dry time. However a fellow gets more experience in bad times than when things are going too smoothly, and that is what I am here for." W e trust he views the position as philosophically now as he did in June. At the Australasian lawn tennis Championship meeting, held on the grass" courts, Albert Ground, Melbourne, in November, The Colts single championship of Victoria was won by V. H. Carr. This event ranks next to the Victorian open championship. Several interstate players contested in a field of 20. V. H. Carr, by this win, gains absolute possession of The Galbraith Shield.

School Sports, The Sports took place on Friday, October 23rd, in warm weather. This was the first occasion on which the new cricket field was used and it looked beautifully green and fresh beside the parched and burnt up land around it. The turf was on the slow side, but a

Over 40 competitors started in both mile and half-mile, which were run earlier. W. S. Lindsay won both these events, being followed home by W. S. Kelly and K. WebbWare. P. E. F.

CROSS COUNTRY. Two races were run at the close of the 2nd term, the Senior Pack Race being over a course about four miles long, and the Junior Pack about half a mile shorter. The course was as follows :—Up the station road and across ploughed land to the railway, along this to the Melbourne Road, then down to the Lagoon and home by the shore with the finish across the cricket field. The Junior Pack Race was run twice, as many runners missed the trail on the first occasion, and the result was declared void. Teams of six from the Houses competed and points were scored towards the House Athletic Cup. The Senior Race produced a fine struggle between Wilkins and Lindsay, these two keeping together the whole way round and finishing less than a foot apart. The Junior Race resulted in an exceedingly even competition between the three Houses. " A " PACK RACE. 1. 2. 3. 4. S. 6. 7. 8. 9. in. 11. 12. 13. 14.

xantteb public Scboote' Sports. The United Public Schools Shorts were held on the Melbourne Cricket Ground, on Thursday, October 29th. The day was fine and the usual enthusiastic crowd were kept in doubt as to the result right up to the last event. Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar School soon established a strong lead over the other competitors, and when the last event took place their scores were equal. L. F. Edmunds quickly put the matter beyond doubt with a fine jump of 20 ft. 114 in., which is a record for these sports. Scotch College showed especially good form in the jumps, as their representative also beat the under-sixteen long jump record and tied with that of the under-fourteen high jump. Melbourne Grammar School excelled in the sprints, in which our competitors were generally outclassed. Once more we occupied last place, but it was only after a good struggle that we we're beaten by 1 point. Our best performer was P. E. F. Chirnside, who scored in three events, clearing S ft. 4$in. in the open high jump, and 19 ft. Sf in. in the open long jump, whilst he was only just beaten for 2nd place in the hurdles. R. Bridgeford and J. L. Webster also showed promising form in the Junior high jumps. F. S. Plowman walked well and W. S. Lindsay ran pluckily in the mile but had taken too much out of himself to be successful in the half-mile. W. S. Kelly finished strongly in the quarter-mile, which was one of the best races of the day, W. R. G. Officer (M.G.S.) getting up in the last few yards to dead heat with E. E. Mackay (G.C.) R. N.

Cabet Corps* . The competition for the House Military Cup was held on Thursday, November 26th. Great keenness was shown by the different Houses and a considerable amount of work was done outside the regular parades. The sight of squads of boys doing section and physical drill in pyjamas at an early hour in the morning was not unusual during the days preceding the competition, while groups of boys could be seen polishing up their rifle exercises at odd times during the day. As a result the work done during the competition was excellent, and excited much favourable comment from the spectators. Captain Webb, Sergeant-Major Batterham, and Sergeant-Major Underwood, acted

INTER-HOUSE

SHOOTING.

For the above competition it was decided that each House should be represented by a team of eight, the best six to count in the scoring. The match was shot off on the morning of Saturday, November 28th, on the Geelong Rifle Range. A variable cross wind was blowing, while the light was rather puzzling at times. Cadet rifles were used at first class figure targets. Each competitor fired ten shots at each range, two sighters being allowed. The shooting resulted as follows :— MANIFOLD HOUSE. 300yds. 400yds.

with bat and ball and promise well for next season. In our matches this half the batting has been fair, but the bowling rather disappointing. The fielding however has on the whole been very good. A. R. Thomson has captained the team this half, and both he and C. R. Botterill (vice-captain) have by their keenness set a good example to the team. The fielding prize (presented by Mr. H. Gillett) has been awarded by the Committee to C. McK. Lloyd. The Committee wish to acknowledge contributions to the coach fund from the following :—J. A. Affleck, N. F. Armytage, W. H. Bailey, C. R.

Un flfoemoriam. DRUM-MAJOR

F.

RASHLEIGH

Died 22nd Oct., 1914 ; aged 78 years. It was with feelings of the deepest regret that all members of the School, past as well as present, heard of the death of Drum-Major Rashleigh, which took place in Geelong, on the 22nd of October. After serving in the Maori wars Rashleigh joined the Geelong Rifles in 1859, and soon afterwards was appointed Drum-Major. Upon removal to Ballarat he held for nine years a similar position in the Ballarat Rangers, and returning to Geelong became DrumMajor of the Geelong Artillery Band. He was the first Drill Instructor of this School, a position he retained until 1897, but he will be chiefly remembered by old boys as steward of the School cale and marker at the rifle butts, duties that he performed for the last sixteen years. At our School Speech Days and other public ceremonies the Drum-Major was always present in uniform and formed a striking figure. The old soldier's fine presence will not easily be forgotten. Always ready with a story or a joke he was a great favourite with generation after generation of boys, while his direct address, his manly character, and his hatred of all humbug, commanded universal respect and affection. To the boys he was known as " The Squire," and to the regiment as " Dad." In 1909 the Jubilee was celebrated of his connection with the Victorian Defence forces, and a presentation was made to him at the Orderly Rooms by the Sergeants' Mess. When the School came out to Corio, the DrumMajor, not without evident regret, remained behind.

Last winter we noticed sadly that his health showed signs of failing. Death came somewhat suddenly, but he remained cheery to the very end. The funeral, which was of a military character, took place on Saturday, the 24th October. Our cadets were unfortunately unable, owing to School engagements, to attend.

TRatnfall at Corio, Mr. Frank Austin, of Avalon, our nearest neighbour at the School, whose family have been settled in their present position since 1881, has very kindly furnished us with a copy of the Avalon rain-guage register. It will be seen that this is the driest year since 1881. The average rainfall for 33 years is 20.21 inches. 1881—20.09 1882—16.23 1883—21.15 1884—1674 1885—22.00 1886—2478 1887—24.31 1888—15.83 1889—23.67 1890—21.22

Zhc pastime. December 15th. This was our first entertainment in our newly decorated Wilson Tl all. Though the time for preparation was rather short, a successful and enjoyable evening was spent, and apparently everyone was glad that our precedent had not been broken. The first part of the

programme went well on the whole—the choir were on their mettle, and took up their leads and produced such tone, as never before. Now that a start has been made with part singing, we hope to make progress in it. Simson's recitation was good, and appealingly patriotic, and Pardey's was amusing, though he was not used to speaking in a large room. Mr. Franklin's song went with a good swing, and we were glad to notice that his invalid throat did not seriously handicap him. Mawson was in something of the same predicament, but he carried his song through well, and his voice shows great promise. The piano solos were much enjoyed, though we regretted Miss Garrard had not^a grand piano to assist her in Rachmaninoff's tremendous chords. The " Sextett " went at their song well, but the key was too low for them. W e liked the piano duets very much, and we were glad to welcome what we hope is the foundation of a school orchestra ; there was something wanting in attack and in tune, but we were grateful for all their work. " A Red Rosebud " was charmingly sung. In the rehearsal of the " Spanish Armada," there was fun in plenty from start to finish. Fisken is a " find " with his good stage voice and useful by-play. F. Mair is not quite distinct, but he carried his part through creditably for a first appearance, and was quite at home—a great point. Kelly made a stately noble Earl, and deserves a word for his incitement to enthusiasm among his followers. Mackinnon came into the cast late, but was quite at home—speech distinct and facial play good. C. Mair was most amusing as Whiskerandos, and did not over-act ; we still laugh over his chains and his lisp and general fatuousness. Chomley was rather stiff, but " came o u t " better on the night. Simson was excellent. Lindsay and Shannon as the Sentinel helped matters along. Webb-Ware is a very promising actor ; Brisbane was not quite "Sneer," but the by-play of the two was very good. Puff is the mainspring, and Mr. Brewer was quite successful, his placid smile when things went right, his horror when accidents. occurred, his distress at the intended mangling of his play, kept the fun going well, and we are sure enlisted sympathy for stage managers. W e thank all the performers, and
