1937-38 HE past academic year has been distinguished by two Timportant events in the history of the College, a munificent benefaction from our Honorary Fellow, Lord Nuffield, and the disannexation of the Gloucester Canonry. During the summer of 1937 Lord Nuffield made the College a gift of the sum of fifty thousand pounds. The Master and Fellows accepted this most generous benefaction with the deepest gratitude which will be echoed by all members of the College Society. In the past year Lord Nuffield has again made a princely benefaction to Oxford in the founding of Nuffield College at a cost of a million pounds and in contributing one hundred thousand pounds for a laboratory in Physical Chemistry. We feel it to be a distinction that he should at the same time have thought fit to endow Pembroke so generously. We are pleased also to notice that Lord Nuffield has made a similar benefaction to Worcester College. Pembroke and Worcester are both societies which in the past have often had to maintain their establishment and play their part in the University under severe financial stress. Lord Nuffield's gifts will not merely increase the usefulness of the Colleges concerned but will strengthen the idea of the College system which is the essence of Oxford life. The benefaction to Pembroke is governed by a deed of trust allocating the revenue to certain purposes and principally to grants for poor students being members of the College. During the year 1937 the College decided to proceed to an important change in the constitution of the College by securing the disannexation of the Gloucester Canonry from the Mastership. This step was envisaged as possible when the present statutes of the College were drawn up under the Royal Commission after the War. Provision was made in these statutes for a retiring age for the Master and for the accumulation of a pension, but it was provided that that section should not take effect 'so long as a Canonry in the Cathedral Church of Gloucester shall remain annexed to the Mastership'. Future Masters will be under the normal rules

governing the retirement of Heads of Colleges, that is to say, the Master will retire at the age of seventy unless the Governing Body should decide to prolong his term by a period of not more than five years. The present Master will not come under the retiring age. There are many reasons for the change which the College after long contemplation has at last taken. The work of Heads of Houses tends to grow with the size and complexity of the University. In addition to ruling their own societies they are called upon to take a large part in University administration. More especially during the period of a Vice-Chancellorship and, what is not perhaps generally realized, for some years before and after holding the office of Vice-Chancellor the head of a College is much occupied with University business. To add to this the duties of residence throughout the long vacation as Canon of a Cathedral is a very serious burden. Moreover, the maintenance of the Canonry would have the effect of limiting very seriously the choice of the Fellows in electing a new Master. Oxford is no longer, as it was in the time of Queen Anne or even eighty years ago, a clerical institution. It is no longer an exclusively Anglican institution. Only a very small proportion of its graduates take Holy Orders, and to limit the Mastership to those capable of holding the Canonry must necessarily narrow the choice of the Fellows in making an election and might conceivably make it difficult to maintain the Pembroke connexion. The Gloucester connexion has lasted for 2 24 years. Pembroke men naturally and properly have taken pride in it and will in many ways regret its disappearance. These sentiments are shared by members of the Governing Body. It is only after bearing the matter in their minds for many years and in the full conviction that the change was in the best interests of the College that the Master and Fellows decided to sever this ancient bond. We can only express the hope that the Diocese of Gloucester in the past has benefited as we have done from the connexion, and that the full and free use of the preferment which we have resigned will be of advantage to it in the future. A portrait of Lord Nuffield has been painted for the College and now hangs over the fireplace in the Hall. It is a


6

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

copy of the portrait painted for St. Peter's Hall by the late Mr. de Laszlo and portrays Lord Nuffield sitting in his robes as an honorary Doctor of Civil Law. The copy was made by kind permission of the Master of St. Peter's Hall and with the approval of Mr. de Laszlo who entrusted the work of copying to Mr. Sydney P. Kendrick, an artist who has made several admirable copies of de Laszlo portraits. Mr. de Laszlo, in recommending Mr. Kendrick, stated, `The artist I have employed for the last twenty-five years as a copyist is exceedingly good: in fact you can hardly detect the difference between the original and the copy, so well does he understand my technique'. A photograph of the Nuffield portrait forms the frontispiece to this number of the Record. During Hilary Term the Master resigned the office of Chairman of the Oxford Society which he had held since its inception. Many warm tributes were paid to him for his services to the Society which is now an established and flourishing institution. The Oxford Society maintains close relations with the Pembroke Society. Pembroke men who desire to join both societies at once may do so by paying the ordinary subscription of 43 to the Oxford Society and asking the Secretary to transmit his name for enrolment in the Pembroke Society. The sum of L I will then be transferred to the account of the Pembroke Society. This privilege was granted to our Society some time after the formation of the Oxford Society. Consequently, some of our men who joined the Oxford Society at the very beginning have had to pay two subscriptions, the 43 and the Z. . This is an anomaly but not a serious injustice. Members of Colleges who have no societies of their own pay the L3 subscription to the Oxford Society and receive no additional boon. As one of our own members, who found himself, as an original member of the Oxford Society, required to pay again to join the Pembroke Society, tolerantly remarked, 'it merely gives new force to the old proverb, bis dat qui cito dat'. Sir Vincent Baddeley, Honorary Fellow of the College, has made a most generous gift to the Senior Common Room by presenting a portrait of Sir William Blackstone by Daniel


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

7

Gardner. Hitherto the only representation of our greatest jurist was a small coloured print which is hung in the Common Room Parlour. The portrait which we now possess is known to have been presented to a kinsman of Blackstone, Sir William Heathcote, Bart., of Hursley Park, Hampshire, by Lord Eversley in 1876. In 1879 it was examined by Sir George Scharf, the first Secretary and Director of the National portrait gallery. He confirmed the attribution of the subject of the picture to Blackstone. It remained at Hursley Park until with the rest of the Heathcote heirlooms it was sold at Christie's on 27 May 1938. Sir Alec Martin of Christie's catalogued it as by Daniel Gardner. The only other authoritative portraits known to exist are the fine Gainsborough portrait bequeathed by Mr. Salting to the National Gallery, and the portrait by Tilly Kettle which was presented to the University in 1781 by members of the Vinerian Foundation, Blackstone having been the first Vinerian Professor. This is now in the Bodleian. Sir Vincent Baddeley has not only secured the portrait for Pembroke, he has also saved it for England. The dealer who acquired it at the sale on 27 May had it packed up to go to America but was persuaded to sell it to Sir Vincent Baddeley. We already owe to Sir Vincent our splendid contemporary portrait of King James I. We now owe him a double debt for this additional gift. We record with deep regret the death of our Honorary Fellow, Canon B. H. Streeter, in an aeroplane accident in Switzerland last September together with Mrs. Streeter. Canon Streeter was Fellow, Dean, and Chaplain of Pembroke College from 1899 to 1905. He then returned to his own College, Queen's, as a Fellow and was later elected Provost. As Dean and Chaplain, Streeter is remembered by those who knew him as a keen and able tutor and as a good friend and adviser to the undergraduates. He was then laying the foundations of his brilliant studies in the Synoptic Gospels and in the Philosophy of Religion which later brought him a world-wide reputation. But in addition to his work as a scholar he held a remarkable position as a leader in the religious life of this country, more especially amongst University students. His influence spread far beyond the bounds


8

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

of the Anglican Church. He travelled widely in Asia and America as well as in Europe and was in touch with many religious bodies representing not only various forms of Christianity but also non-Christian religions. It is a great satisfaction to the College to have received an excellent photograph of Canon Streeter, left to us in his will. This has been placed in the Common Room Parlour. We congratulate Professor Collingwood on his election as a Fellow of the British Academy. We take occasion also to congratulate him on his escape from drowning when navigating a yacht single-handed in the Channel during the great gale in the middle of the summer term. Professor Collingwood has added to his contributions to philosophical studies a work on The Principles of Art. This book, which has been described by a reviewer as 'the record of an intense personal experience and of a sustained endeavour to see it clearly in the context of modern life', has aroused great interest amongst students of philosophy and will undoubtedly increase the already great reputation of its author. Mr. R. S. Sayers, Lecturer in Economics, has published an important treatise on Modern Banking which will be of interest not only to professional students but to all who want a clear and judicious explanation of the working of the central and commercial banks in this and other countries. Mr. D. E. H. Whiteley was placed in the First Class in the Honour School of Theology. Mr. H. C. Allen was placed in the first class in the Honour School of Modern History. Mr. L. L. Le P. Gardner has been appointed to an administrative post in the Colonial Civil Service in the Gold Coast. Mr. M. A. Maybury has been appointed to the Civil Service in Burma after competitive examination. Mr. C. T. Solberg, Rhodes Scholar from Minnesota, has been elected President of the Junior Common Room in


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

succession to Mr. H. C. Allen. The Junior Common Room have recently altered the term of office for the President. In future he will come into office at the beginning of the Summer Term and will remain in office till the end of Hilary Term. The Torpid had again a victorious year and made five bumps ending fourth on the River. A bump supper was held to celebrate the event. Mr. J. R. Bingham stroked one of the Trial Eights and was also stroke of the Varsity spare Eight. Mr. D. G. Brown won the Discus in the Oxford and Cambridge Sports and also represented Oxford at Putting the Weight. Mr. J. S. Billimoria represented Oxford against Cambridge at Boxing. During the past year Professor J. R. R. Tolkien published a work, not indeed academic in its nature, but one which perhaps only an academic man could have written. We refer to that remarkable children's tale, The Hobbit. But it is one of those children's tales which can be read with profit and amusement even by the most mature. The Hobbit, a stayat-home, comfortable little creature, is persuaded to go adventuring with a band of dwarves. How they cross the Misty Mountains, penetrate Mirkwood, contend with Trolls, Goblins, and other adverse entities, how, supported by beneficent agencies and above all by the courage and resource of the Hobbit himself, they eventually overcome the great Dragon Smaug is the theme of the story. The author himself has provided a beautifully clear pictorial map and illustrations by his own pen. The whole book is remarkable for the solidity and exactitude of the narrative, a happy and reflective vein of humour and for the sanity of the underlying philosophy. Nothing could diminish the lustre which the name of Lewis Carroll brings to Christ Church, but it may well be that the fact that the author of The Hobbit was a fellow of Pembroke will be an additional interest to those who visit us in the future.

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

The Sir Thomas Browne Society this year presented Mr. Masefield's play Tristan and Isolt in the quadrangle of the College on four evenings during Eights' week. This was their second public performance and the choice of the play was ambitious. The play is written in blank verse very different from the traditional verse of Shakespeare. The high tragedy of the theme and the complication of the plot presented many difficulties, but by the energy and skill of the producer, J. R. Bingham, they were successfully overcome. Most of the action takes place at Tintagel Castle which was represented by the Hall. As the daylight failed powerful floodlight illuminated the stage and the Hall behind, presenting a spectacle of much beauty. From the first the play seized the interest of the audience and the tragedy of Tristan unfolded itself convincingly. The women's parts were taken by Miss Lucy Lister, Isolt, Miss Ruth Allen, Brangwen, and Miss J. E. Selous, the swineherd's wife. Isolt sustained her difficult part with remarkable power and Ruth Allen as Brangwen, Isolt's maid, acted with very great delicacy and skill. The male parts were acted by members of the society and they maintained a high standard of consistency. F. W. T. Blatchley-Hennah as Kolbein, the Pirate-Tyrant of Cornwall, died a glorious viking death. F. G. W. Philips as Tristan brought out the intensity of his part. E. M. G. Belfield was successful as the sensitive and humane King Marc. D. L. Smithers made a particularly clever contribution in the part of Sir Kai, the Steward. Although in a sense a minor part, all the humour and much of the unfolding of the plot depended on how Sir Kai was acted. Mr. Smithers's interpretation was both vigorous and subtle. A. R. Pollard in the part of Arthur, Captain of the Host, performed the part of the honest and goodhearted soldier and deserves special credit for the splendid clarity of his speech. On the last evening, the Poet Laureate, Mr. Masefield, honoured the society by attending the play and was kind enough to express his appreciation of the production and the acting. Mr. H. W. C. Peterson, who was in residence from 1919 to 192 I, has gone to China to fight as a volunteer with the


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

ii

Chinese armies. Mr. Peterson served in the Great War in the Royal Fusiliers and afterwards in the Royal Flying Corps. Mr. Peterson was born in Hong Kong and speaks Chinese fluently. He has studied Chinese affairs and taken part in films dealing with China both as an actor and a director. Mr. P. R. R. A. Ferguson, who was in residence from 1935 to 1937, has fought in the International Brigade with the Spanish Republican Armies. In March he was reported as killed but we are glad to record that this was an error. His unit had been isolated during the retreat but he eventually returned to Barcelona and was invalided out of the army having suffered from wounds, shell-shock, and typhoid fever. He is now at his home in England recuperating from his injuries. Lt.-Col. H. Wilberforce Bell, C.I.E., has been made a Knight Commander of the Order of the Indian Empire. Mr. J. D. Casswell has been made a King's Counsel and has also been appointed Recorder of Salisbury. Mr. J.

Although he was almost a generation older than his contemporaries he was keenly interested in College affairs and frequently attended College reunions. WILLIAM ALEXANDER HUGHES

William Alexander Hughes died on 2 February 1938, the same day as his friend and contemporary Major MacalisterHall. One of his friends has sent us the following reminiscences: `W. A. Hughes, known to his friends as "Hunc", was two or three years older than the rest of us when he came up in i 892, which always seems a lot to a freshman or a sixthform boy. He was fond of shooting and of all the pursuits and pastimes of the countryside. Of these he had a wide knowledge. We used to have some happy days together for the shooting with Donald Hall in Argyll. He generally managed to get some rook-shooting in early May round Oxford. He played cricket when he was up and was always fond of a village match. He backed up all the College activities and usually attended the annual dinner in London where all his old friends were pleased to see him. He worked afterwards in the City which was not exactly agreeable to his taste for country life.' THOMAS KILLAM KILLAM

The Rev. Thomas Killam Killam died on 31 August 1938. He came into residence at Pembroke in Hilary Term 1878, his surname then being Mathews. In 188o while still in residence, he changed his name to Killam. He took the degree of B.A. in 1881 and M.A. in 1884.

PEMBROKE COLLEGE WILLIAM MACALISTER-HALL

Major Macalister-Hall died at Torrisdale Castle, Argyll, on 2 February '938. He came into residence at Pembroke in 1892 from Rugby School. He held the rank of Major in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and was a Deputy Lieutenant for the County of Argyll. A contemporary contributes the following reminiscences : `Macalister-Hall, always known as Donald, came up to us from Rugby. He was a regular Scot and had long and solemn yet pleasing features. He was not over talkative and so what he said was interesting and amusing. He would add to the enjoyment of a merry evening, when we had guests, by putting on his Highland kit, and giving a sword dance with two fire-irons in the middle of the floor, without putting a foot wrong. I do not think his rowing got much further than tub fours but he was fond of coming down to the barge and going on the towing path. He would always help to make up a cricket or football team if wanted. `Soon after leaving Oxford he was gazetted to his local militia battalion, the 3rd Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and was thus able to get to France in early days with that famous regiment. In advancing with his company he was badly wounded several times as he lay on the ground, all down one side including his face. His heart was in the Highlands—and no wonder! He was fond of shooting and yachting and his home was situated among his native hills with wide views of the Isle of Arran and the sea. He enjoyed having his friends to stay for the shooting which was, in certain seasons, among the best in Scotland for woodcock. He had many local activities and the ghillies and people round were evidently fond of him.' NORMAN McCORQUODALE

Mr. N. McCorquodale died on 3 January 1938. He came into residence in '882. He held the position of Director of Railway Printing Establishments. WILLIAM HARDY MANFIELD

Mr. W. H. Manfield died on 13 August 1937. He came up from Dulwich in 1878. He was for some time Captain of the Dorset Cricket Club.

He was placed in the First Class in Classical Moderations in 1876 and in the Second Class in Literae Humaniores in 1878. From 1879 to 1919 he was assistant master at Haileybury. He devoted his whole life to loyal service to Haileybury and published a History of the School. From 192I to 1936 he served as a Governor. From 1919 to 1925 as Rector of Widford, Hertfordshire, and later, when he had retired, he kept in touch with many generations of Haileybury men. ROLAND ARTHUR PECOVER

After two years as an assistant master at Boston Grammar School he joined the staff of Bradford Grammar School in 1936. In both schools, and also with the Boston Playgoers Society up to 1936, he continued his dramatic work begun with the O.U.D.S., and in addition to acting and producing wrote several short plays which bore the stamp of his versatile and provocative personality. His energy and enthusiasm in teaching, his freshness and originality of thought, and above all his great gift of friendship gave promise of singularly notable success in his profession. He died on Io March 1938. PROCKTER THOMAS PULMAN

THE SOCIETIES THE JOHNSON SOCIETY

During the past year the Society has extended its activities by inviting gentlemen who are not members to read papers.


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

19

We were fortunate in securing Mr. S. R. Dunlap of St. Edmund Hall who gave a polished and amusing account of Pantisocracy and the Brook Farm Experiment, and Mr. W. Robertson Davies who delighted us with an informal discussion of the theatre in the nineteenth century. Several members of the Society have also read papers. We were honoured at our Annual Dinner by the presence of the Rev. H. S. Deighton of this College and of Mr. Alan Hay of Christ Church. THE BEAUMONT SOCIETY

There was some excitement at the beginning of the year when a United Front party proposed an amalgamation with the Johnson Society. After several more or less stormy meetings the Isolationists won the day. Mr. H. C. Allen is to be congratulated on guiding the deliberations of the society. For the rest the standard of papers has in no way deteriorated: and, if it is not invidious to single out individuals, Mr. Stead's paper on Edgar Allan Poe stands out in our memories as one of the best recently read to the Society. SIR THOMAS BROWNE SOCIETY

The Society has had a successful and active year, reading ic a varied selection of plays fortnightly during the haelmas and Hilary terms, all energies in the Summer being directed towards the Eights' Week open-air production of Tristan and Isolt. John Masefield very kindly renounced production fees, and he and Mrs. Masefield came to the final performance. The Poet Laureate expressed his enjoyment of the play: Mrs. Masefield said she thought all the `cuts' were excellent. During the Hilary Term permission was granted the Society to revive the custom of an Annual Dinner which was duly held on the last Friday of term. Mr. R. B. McCallum and Mr. J. Robertson-Davies very kindly consented to be our guests of honour. THE CLUBS ROWING. Captain, M. F. Smith; Secretary, H. C. M. Horsley. The Boat Club continued the great improvement


20

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

shown last year and once again had a highly successful season. For the first time for many years a Coxswainless Four was entered for the University Races. The crew spent its first week of practice on the Ouse at Bedford under the able instruction of Mr. A. M. St. L. Ramsay Murray of Selwyn College, Cambridge, and Mr. W. F. M. Clemens of Christ's College, Cambridge. In spite of complete lack of experience the crew had made great strides by the time it had reached the Isis where it was coached successively by Mr. J. P. Burrough of St. Edmund Hall and Mr. R. D. Burnell of Magdalen. In the first round the Four was drawn against New College B crew and succeeded in defeating them without difficulty after a very steady row. In the second round we were unfortunate in drawing Oriel, the eventual winners, and were fairly and squarely beaten. It is worthy of note that Oriel later thoroughly smashed the record in the Visitors' Challenge Cup at Henley Regatta. Once again we were well supported by freshmen at the beginning of the Michaelmas term, and the useful nucleus of a dozen freshmen made it possible to put four crews on the river for the Robinson Fours which were held at the end of the fourth week of term, and provided some very interesting racing. Without any delay practice for Torpids was started and after various experiments a provisional Torpid was formed and entered for the Godstow Races, a new event founded by the O.U.B.C. consisting of side by side races to be held above locks on the Godstow reach. The crew was coached at first by the captain, and for the last week of practice by Mr. N. D. Watson of New College. As it was not a first crew it was placed in the second division and had no difficulty at all in defeating Balliol II and Wadham in the first and second rounds respectively. The crew disposed of Jesus in the semi-final and went on triumphantly to win the final against University by three lengths. It is significant that our winning time was 2 second faster than that of St. Edmund Hall who were victors in the First Division. Success at Godstow laid a firm foundation for Torpids, and under the skilful coaching of Mr. D. S. Laskey of Corpus and Mr. N. D. Watson of New College the crew never

looked back. Starting ninth on the river they made five bumps at the expense of Oriel, Exeter, St. John's, Balliol, and University, and thus rose to the exalted position of fourth, a higher place than the Torpid has held for a great many years. The Second Torpid was dogged by illness and ill luck and was unable to hold its position. The First Eight came into residence a week before the beginning of the Trinity Term and started practice from the Radley Boat House so as to take advantage of the long reach between Sandford and Abingdon locks. We were again fortunate to have the services of Mr. L. V. Bevan as coach, and considerable advance was made under his instruction. On returning to the Isis the crew came under the guidance of Mr. J. P. Burrough of St. Edmund Hall, and he was followed by Mr. H. M. Young of Trinity. Unfortunately a week before races Mr. Young had to abandon the coaching owing to illness and his place was taken by Mr. R. D. Burnell of Magdalen. The performance of the Eight came as a great disappointment to all as much had been expected of it. We were taken by surprise on the first night by a fast Christ Church crew and failed to recover properly from this setback. Nevertheless a thrilling week's racing ensued and after several exciting contests with St. John's we narrowly missed bumping Corpus on the last night. We thus finished eleventh on the river keeping our place in the First Division secure. The Second Eight was coached by Mr. J. R. Bingham and proved to be exceptionally fast especially at the start of the course. They made five bumps with the greatest ease and were unlucky in being deprived of a sixth. For the first time for a number of years a Third Eight was put on the river. It was coached by the captain and though naturally rather raw and unpolished, succeeded in making four bumps. Undaunted by the disappointment of Eights Week the Eight was somewhat reorganized and entered for the Ladies Plate at Henley Regatta. Training for the last part of the term was held on the Isis and the coaching was in the hands of Mr. W. J. H. Liversidge of St. Edmund Hall, and Mr. A. B. Hodgson of Oriel. Great strides were made towards the recovery of form lost in Eights Week, and when the


22

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

crew went to Henley they came under the instruction of Mr. A. E. B. Williams of Jesus College, Cambridge, whose coaching, containing many ideas with which the crew had not previously come into contact, acted as a tonic with the result that we improved out of all recognition. We were drawn against Jesus College, Cambridge B, a crew highly placed in the First Division on the Cam. Though defeated we produced the best performance given by a Pembroke crew for several years, and Jesus were never completely masters of the situation. Jesus were narrowly beaten by Radley College who proved the eventual winners. The improvement shown in the crew after Eights Week, specially during the fortnight at Henley, should prove invaluable for next year. J. R. Bingham followed up his selection to the continental tour of the O.U.B.C. with a well-earned Trial cap on which he is to be heartily congratulated. Unfortunately he was unable owing to illness to stroke the Isis crew for which he was selected in the Head of the River Race. D. L. Smithers coxed the Isis crew on several occasions. At Bedford Regatta we were narrowly defeated after a thrilling race in the final of the Open Pairs by Bedford School. THE FOUR Bow. H. C. M. Horsley 2. S. Lester 3. M. F. Smith Sir. J. R. Bingham

RUGBY. Captain, H. J. S. Beazley; Secretary, F. G. W. Philips. The Club id not have a successful season, losing its place in the Second League and being beaten in the first round 'of `Cuppers' by Lincoln. In Leagues we were handicapped by injuries and illness, but we were never able to play with any determination. Neither forwards nor backs ever looked dangerous, and although our defence was sound, we lacked weight and speed. We partially redeemed ourselves in the subsidiary rounds of `Cuppers' by advancing to the semi-final where Balliol beat us soundly. Of the backs H. J. S. Beazley, C. A. Stone, and P. J. Massey were always conspicuous, while of the forwards, C. F. G. Carr-Gregg, F. G. Rawcliffe, and J. D. Culverwell were outstanding. M. B. Strubell and J. D. Culverwell played in both the Freshmens' and the Combined Trials and F. J. S. Morgan played in the Freshmen's trials. ilSSOCIATION. Captain, L. L. Le P. Gardner;. Secretary, C. A. Stone. During the Michaelmas Term, when the College made a welcome reappearance in the First Division, the Club proved that its promotion was fully deserved, and despite its loss of such stalwarts as Manby, Swann, Sherwin, and Millard-Bishop, finished half way up the table, winning 3 matches, losing 4, and drawing 2. In `Cuppers' we advanced to the second round, though we regret to have to admit that a bye, not personal effort, was responsible, but we then failed to take advantage of a favourable draw and were defeated by Lincoln, a late rally in the second half not succeeding in wiping out the considerable lead which our opponents had established in the first. In the matter of newcomers, the number of natural players who came up was very disappointing, and the gaps in the team had mostly to be filled by seniors. However, M. B. Strubell showed that the calls of rugby need not interfere with the claims of soccer and in the course of the season became a more than useful player, whilst M. L. Brierly, though he did not fit in at outside right, gave promise of making a good centreforward for next year. The position in goal gave us considerable trouble, and we reached no satisfactory solution by

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

the end of the season. Of the seniors, F. J. Barrett, who takes over the duties of secretary, was an indispensable member of the half-back line, while the captain played his usual invaluable part in our success. College colours were awarded to M. B. Strubell, C. F. Watson, M. L. Brierly, and W. C. Gawthorne. CRICKET. Captain, S. F. Florey; Secretary, W . C. Gawthorne. The club had a rather trying season. Most of last year's regular players were working for Schools and, apart from Culverwell and Massey, the freshman talent was disappointing. Some matches had to be scratched because we could not raise 'a side, but at the end of the term the eleven was more impressive, with batting all the way down to number ten. But even after Schools the bowling was limited; there was no slow spin bowler like David Collins, who reminded us how much we missed him by coming back from Cambridge and helping to bowl out Oxford City. The bowling was particularly weak when Gardner was unable to play, for Gawthorne did not strike his form of last season and Philips, whose histrionic activities interfered with his cricket, did not get as many wickets as his good length deserved. As a batsman Gawthorne was in splendid fettle. With an average of well over fifty, he was the mainstay of the batting and his ninety-five not out against Bath was a very enjoyable innings. He was well supported by Heddy, who had his best season for the College, and Barrett, Watson, Culverwell, Massey, and Stone all made runs on occasions. The most creditable performances were against the Lansdowne C.C., Bath, Oxford City, and St. Edmund Hall, in each of which games we made a lot of runs very quickly. A very pleasant evening match was played against the Oxford Downs after Schools and is to be repeated next year. Colours were awarded to Culverwell, Heddy, Massey, and Watson. Florey was given his Authentic. HOCKEY. Captain, S. F. Florey; Secretary, D. G. W. McKendrick. We drew a bye in `Cuppers' but were beaten in the second round by Keble. Unfortunately Florey was ill and unable to play. Cook, who played for his University


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

25

in South Africa but had not played since coming up to Oxford, nobly took his place and scored our solitary goal. In other matches we had a fairly successful season, winning a great number of games and losing only when it was impossible to get a full side. Peter Hill was up for an extra term and his enthusiasm and skill were invaluable. Gardner played some brilliant games in goal, notably against the Occasionals, and was later asked to play in an extra University trial game. The backs improved steadily and Massey was a find among the freshmen. The halves, too, were good, Yoshimoto and Carr-Gregg covering well and giving their forwards excellent support. The great weakness was among the forwards; apart from McKendrick, they had no thrust and their shooting was often lamentable. It was difficult to fill the outside-left position and perhaps Gawthorne was the best of those who were tried there, though he will make a better half next year. Very few of the eleven are going down this year and, if there is any talent among the freshmen, next season's side should be a well-balanced one. Colours were awarded to McKendrick, Massey, CarrGregg, Yoshimoto, and D. M. Allen. Florey was elected to the Occasionals. ATHLETICS. Captain, D. G. Brown; Secretary, D. 0. Willis. Apart from a few individual successes, the club has unfortunately suffered this year from a general lack of talent. This was made apparent in the Inter-College Relays, where hard work proved no substitute for athletic prowess. However, D. G. Brown has continued to represent the University at putting the weight and has also tried his hand successfully with the discus, which he managed to throw to victory last March for a new Inter-Varsity record. In the Athletic `Cuppers' we failed to hold St. Peter's, but proved that at any rate we were individually as good. D. G. Brown won the weight, and chased home the Varsity Secretary in the Low Hurdles. D. 0. Willis managed to get the r oo yards and the 44o yards and A. Howel-Jones again showed an aptitude for the pole vault. Of the fresh-


z6

PEMBROKE COLLEGE

men, D. Bryan, a promising cross-country runner, has been awarded his colours. TENNIS. Captain, A. Howel-Jones; Secretary, N. Kitovitz. The First VI were very fortunate this year in having an L.T.A. coach which improved the standard of play enormously. We were unlucky to draw B.N.C. in `Cuppers', to whom we lost badly, and we lost by a very narrow margin to Exeter in the Second VI. Kitovitz played remarkably well throughout the season and represented the University on a few occasions. Colours were awarded to J. P. Lee Woolf, A. Cook, J. C. G. Hill, and A. Howel Jones. SWIMMING. Captain, F. C. Rawcliffe; Secretary, B. Crowther. Though in grave danger of extinction at the beginning of the year, owing to almost complete lack of support, the Swimming Club revived later sufficiently to be able to enter a team for the College Relay during the Trinity Term. Here, however, by the luck of the draw, they met B.N.C. in the first round, and we regret to say that it was B.N.C. who passed into the second round. Once again it must be emphasized that until there is more enthusiastic support, the Club cannot hope to better its position. DEGREES July 1937 to July 1938 B.C.L.: N. S. Marsh. B.M. : D. A.

THE COLLEGE SOCIETY The sixth Annual General Meeting was held at the Connaught Rooms, Kingsway, London, on 4 July at 7.15 p.m. Master Burnand took the Chair. The Secretary reported that the membership of the Society on that date stood at 408. The Society had lost seven members by death during the year. The balance at the Bank amounted to ÂŁ69 r os. 'ad. A statement was made by the Secretary about the Directory and a vote of thanks was passed to Mr. H. L. Drake for his services in revising and correcting the proofs of the Directory. Mr. H. R. Horsley, Mr. G. A. Layton, Mr. A. C. Snowden were re-elected as members of the Committee for a period of three years. A discussion took place on the venue of the College Dinner. While members expressed satisfaction with the service at the Connaught Rooms there was considerable support for the view that a change might be popular. It was resolved that the dinner committee should be requested to arrange for the next dinner to be held at the Cafe Royal, Regent Street, if satisfactory terms could be obtained. THE PEMBROKE COLLEGE DIRECTORY REVISED LIST OF ADDRESSES

The Secretary of the College Society is indebted to many members for information which has enabled corrections to be made to the Directory of names and addresses of Pembroke men which was circulated by the College Society at the beginning of this year. It is hoped to issue a new edition of the Directory at the beginning of 194o, and thereafter at intervals of three or four years. In the meantime we print a list of new addresses or corrections in the form of addresses which we have received up to date. S 1932 Ackerman, L.
