CANADIAN SERVICES COLLEGE ROYAL ROADS 1961 - 1962


FOREWORD I was very much honoured when I was asked to write the foreword for this year' s LOG. It is on opportunity for me to renew my ties with Royal Roods, and it recalls particularly to my mind the happy years I spent as commandant of the college . There seems to me to be one pre-eminent quality that should characterize the graduates of our military colleges; namely, integrity. The full implication of this word is important, for not only does it mean honesty and uprightness, but it conveys the ideo of wholeness of character that is all too uncommon . Without integrity, the highly praised qualities of brilliance, strong leadership and loyalty are nothing worth. You have received a training and education at Royal Roods that place the highest value on your all-round development - intellectual, physical , moral and spiritual. This is only right and proper since our country and the Armed Services will always stand in need of something more than well trained and well educated officers. I would urge you, therefore, to prize the quality of integrity above all others, and to resolve that it will be a distinguishing mark of your own character and personality. In no greater way could you honour Royal Roods. My best wishes to all of you for a successful and happy future .

PRESENTATI ON OF ACADEMIC AWARDS

COLOUR PARTY


Thursday, 24 May saw the Parents' Day gymnastic display smoothly performed beneath a clearing, warm sky. Athletic awards listed on page 54 were presented by our commandant, Group Captain A. F. Avant. The guests then moved to the castle lawn and joined the Senior Staff and cadet wing for the presentation of academic awards. Following the presentations by the commandant and the Director of Studies, Professor E. S. Graham, an informal tea was given on the terrace. Friday afternoon the cadet guards marched proudly on to the square for the Presentation of the Queen's and College Colours. The arrival of His Excellency Major General G. P. Vanier, Governor-General of Canada, signalled the beginning of the honoured ceremony. Two hours of precision, pride and pageantry later, the graduating class escorted the Colours from the square to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne." That evening the commencement exercises were crowned at the Graduation Dance held on the quarter-deck. Now those times have passed, but their memory will always be cherished by every cadet of the Royal Roads cadet wing 1962.

\1ING COMMANDER'S ADDR ESS BY CWC R. BOADWAY 6219 The gentlemen cadets of Royal Roads of the college year 1961-62 will recall with pride the events and accomplishments of their term . This was the year of the presentation of the College Colours by the Governor General; the trip for some to the World's Fair in Seattle, an enlarged Northbound; a third fifteen rugger team, a B.C. champion rope climber; a visit of the U .S.A .F. academy soccer team; a

fourth squadron; a new OCCW; the addition of hockey; a junior-senior pushboll game; the introduction of the chess ladder; a larger enrolment; and countless other events all adding to the success of the college year. Something

a member of Royal Roads gave us a certain satisfaction which

caused us to uphold the college reputation in everything we did. On the sports field, "The Value of Training" was stressed . The teamwork we learned and our attitude towards competition will help us in future years. It was not important

who won or lost, but how the game was played, and merely the fact that one did play . A necessary quality of a gentleman, social grace, was continually stressed at the various dances and mess We learned to present ourdinners throughout the year. selves properly in Her Majesty's uniform in such a way as to

benefits, however, was provided for us as officer cadets . One might call it character building . Most certainly, it is teaching us to be gentlemen of the service, as we live and work side by side with fellow officer cadets. Such desirable qualities as honesty, loyalty, pride, and sense of judgment were being developed in us constantly. Our

reflect credit upon that for which we stoad; the Canadian Services Co lleges. W hat we have learned can be summed in these three words: Truth, Duty, Valour-the first principles learned by a cadet. As we think of the meaning of these words, we realize what is meant by ex路 cadets who say of their service

self-confidence was improved vastly, as was our ability to lead . We were being instilled with determination to carry

college training, "It has made a gentleman of me," and we

out what was required of us to the best of our ability.

Now we move on to R.M .C. to continue our training , regretfully departing from the land of the warm winter sun

As well, we were learning the meaning of true com-

radeship.

Nowhere before hod we experienced such close

contact with a group of

individuals very much

like our-

selves, both in aim and ability, as we have at Roya l Roads. From this enviable environment, we have found that cooperation is essential, not only among our term mates but with the senior staff as well. A certain togetherness was developed amangst ourselves, one which is lasting by nature . From the very start, self-discipline became a necessity.

hope to be able to say t he same. and all its benefits. We hope many mare cadets will pass through the college af ter us. As we leave Royal Roads we loak to t he future and wish "Goad Luck to the New Senior Term and to a ll t hose who follow."

We soon found it natural to do things without being told, and to plan our time in such a way as to get everythinp dane satisfactorily. In addition to self-discipline, personal

pride and college pride were deve loped in us.

is on experiment in improvement. Ordinarily a college yearbook is many things : a treasured scrapbook, a photograph ic

business techniques were added, the exchange department became international, and the photography department as-

album, or a glimpse of history. Its purpose is to record the events, the people, and the spirit of the year. Naturally we hope that thIS LOG fulfills that purpose well enough to be worthy of bearing the name Royal Roads. But in addition, we hope that this LOG wi II provide a fres h firm

In early September, when we began work on the LOG, we relied heavily on the sound foundation provided by past yearbook staffs. I n our search for ways of making improvements, however, we decided to try several experimental changes. The stoff was increased to four times its previous

size, and each flight contributed " Logging" and biography representatives . Ex-cadets across the country were notified of our aim and of our desire to maintain as large on emphasis

In the book itself we redivisioned the

and the q uality of our yearbook.

In addition, we hoped to

modern ize our publication techniques for future years. Of cou rse we recognized the possibility of fOiling in our aim, a nd even realized that some imperfections were Inevitable. However, if the imperfections prove to be not too serious and if the LOG becomes a firm base for future editions, we can conclude that the risk of experimenting was wa rth taking. Whether or not our experiment has been successful is now up to the reader to decide.

A combination of self-discipline, drive, and ability has enabled Rob to become one of the outstanding cadets Royal Roads has produced. The word "all-round" describes Rob perfectly. In his two years at Roads Rob has led his term in academics with his marks ranking in the top three of his term. Rob ploys any sport well. He excels in basketball, hockey, and squash and is a prop for the First XV rugger team. He has led Cartier Flight to many victories with his ability. Socially, Rob has become the favorite of the debutante set in Victoria and has made the most of these opportunities.

Ability, determination, and a booming voice of command have 'NOn Bill the position of Cadet Wing Commander First Slate and Cadet Squadron Leader of No. 1 Squadron for the Honour Slate. In his junior year, his drill was suspected to be the best in his term and he has upheld his own standard in his senior year.

He is captain of the representative soccer

team and is an active participant in all interflight sports. He defends the theory that Quebec and Ontario are not part of Eastern Canada: they are just less-west than the prairies. Bill's career in the Army began many years ago and with the ability he has shown here he will go far in the R.C.A.C.

Last year Charlie decided that he had carried a rifle long enough. This year he carried a sword all the way through - CSAdjt ., CSL, and CSL Honour Slate. His hard work produced good results in both the military and academic fields . Aport from these compelling duties, Charlie found time to participate in water palo, debating, and the Skylarks. Moreover he accepted the responsibility of editing this Log . On the lighter side, "Special K" was always prey for a good practical joke. "Where did my cabin go?" His ingenuity and good humor never failed at a flight party.

In sports he played inside center on the First XV and centre forward far the soccer team on its trip to USAFA last year. Derry won his weight division in boxing and has been a close second to Dunc McCaig in squash. Needless to say he has been a leader in interflight sparts. Derry was appointed Deputy Cadet Wing Commander for the First Slate and was moved from No. 4 Squadron to become Cadet Squadron Leader of No. 3 Squadron for the Honour Slate. All these accomplishments leave little time for his hobbies of soiling, golf, chess, and bridge.

Craig's ability and leadership was evident from the beginning of his junior year. He was moved to No. 4 Squadron in his senior year to become its Cadet Squadron Leader. The outstanding showing he made both in academics and as Squadron Leader made him a logical choice as Cadet Wing Commander, Second Slate. "Doug" was returned as No. 4 Squadran Leader for the Honour Slate. Craig's academics have been aver the 70 per cent mark, very good for Honours Math and Physics. He is a member of the Second XV and has helped to lead Vancouver Flight to the interflight rugger trophy. He has been quoted as saying, "You can't win 'em all, " but this seems to be exactly what he is doing in his work here.

Gory had to live up to the precedent set by his cousin, Eppie, and live up to that standard he did. His hard work moved him up from Cadet Section Commander in MacKenzie Flight to Flight Leader of Cartier Flight for the Second Slate and Cadet Squadron Adiustant for No. t Squadron in the Honour Slate. Not only did Gory follow his cousin's steps as for as leadership went; he followed him in choice of services. Originally Gory was on army cadet. When he come to Royal Roods, he was a nova I cadet, but he finally settled as a pilot in the Air Force. Gary is a strong backed serum man for the First XV rugger team. His ability in all sports hos strengthened Cartier Flight since his transfer into it.

Jacques, one of our two French Canadian cadets, brings more than his shore of ability from his hometown along the St. Lawrence . Outstanding in all flight sports, Jacques has played goalie for the Water Polo team and standoff for the First XV rugger team except when his various injuries have kept him on the sidelines where he is seen cheering louder

than anyone else. Jacques has always at least held his own academically and on the military side has successfully worked his W<X-/ from Senior Cadet to CSC to CFL to CSA on the Honour Slate. With his winning smile and friendly personality Jacques is going to have trouble carrying out his ambition of staying a confirmed bachelor.

A break in the demanding duties as a cadet officer, let Lou concentrate all his effort on his studies and sports, thus leading him to his final position on the\Honour Slate as Flight Leader of MacKenzie once again .

Lou 's activities range from cool guitar picking and the

Skylarks to rugged wing break on the second fifteen. In his junior year Lou developed a reputation as being a suave operator. If anyone had a good time on leave, it was Mr. "Kench"; however, this year he hit a brick wall with one P.W. I wonder why? Is he losing his touch?

What time Bob has left is spent in turning down Hill's offers to "set him up" for the weekend . Bob has the dubious honour of being the' only codet with a Bogey haircut.

STAND DOWN WEEKEND by Pat Dunne The sap starts running at about the beginnmg of March, and Royal Roads cadets are no exception to this trend in nature . At 1200 hours, 1 Mar 62, the long a w a it e d Stand Down Weekend began . Well prepared plans for our three and a half days of freedom were brought to light. Our cherished civilian clothes were unpacked, our uniforms hastily put out of sight and out of mind, and we all headed someplace to "get it out of our system ." Many cadets went to Mount Baker fo r a weekend of skiing and frolicking in the snow . Royal Roads had a snowfall almost as heavy as the one on the sunny slopes of Mount Baker, but the skier5 brought back tales that made us envy them . Pete Messner was the only casualty with a twisted knee . He spent the rest of the weekend tactfully evading a reportedly good -loa king girl with simi liar troubles. Wall y Yankowich headed for Los Angeles, where we heard he made quite a hit with his pale pigmentation. A few of the Edmonton cadets decided to risk venturing back to their old stamping grounds only to find that the

temperoture was in the low below 50's. A lot of us were in Funville (Vancouver) short hours after our release, for a sure thing as far as having a good time was concerned . Many who were so inclined kept in good shape for the boxing by finding two taverns side by side and working out on the parallel bars . Some of us were even fortunate enough to be introduced to the gay set in Vancouver. The largest group remained within the environs of our hospitable little city of Victoria, no doubt because of the snow. The city reeled from the shock of a massed attack, but only light damage was sustained . Crumpled fenders and a few odd totally destroyed motels were the only serious incidents . Mike Bond recently closed a deal with the insurance companies: in return for never again stepping into a U-Drive, Mike will receive $100 per month for life. We think he got robbed . All in all, Stand Down was a roaring success. May we take the opportunity to suggest that a few more Stand Downs per term would raise the morale sky-high throughout the year.

DANCES AND PARTIES by Pat Dunne The first dance this year was the Hallowe'en Formal, held in conjunction with the visit by the USAF Academy. Juniors got their first loak at a blind date in Victoria and in many cases seemed extremely pleased . Our representative soccer team threw a party for the visiting team at the Grouse Nest. The USAF cadets were extremely pleased, both with their dates and with the entertainment we laid on for them . They left us Sunday morning with happy smiles and as a token of their appreciaton for our hospitality they made two low level passes over Wing Parade with their returning aircraft. The Senior Term had its first porty early in the fall term . The unaccustomed freedom of semi-civilian clothes made the party an unqualified success. The Christmas Ball was a very well planned and well decorated affair. The Junior Term is to be congratulated on its very fine effort. As is the custom here, all good dances wind up with a rip-roaring party and the Christmas Ball was no exception . A very sastisfying porty at the Elks Club concluded a very special evening . 34

All four squadrons held their porties after the New Year. All were well attended and there were no complaints about lack of either beer or sinful games. A warm aura of friendliness pervades these little gatherings. In addition to the squadron parties, almost every flight had an unofficial get together at either the Mess Decks or in some of the recognized places of pleasure . No complaints here either. St. Valentine's hit us when we were low in cash and close to Stand Down. The now famous phrase "all cadets are expected to attend" was given widely diverging shades of meaning, and consequently there was a lot of roam on the Quarterdeck for dancing . Many who were there enjoyed themselves more than on any other occasion . Finally, the consensus of opinion is that the social life this year was vastly richer than it had ever been before. Debutantes were escorted, new girls were met, old girls were forgotten, and our devil-may-care at tit u d e has achieved wider notoriety. A very good year.

EXERCISE NORTHBOUND by C. JUREK This year Exercise Northbound was not only a recreationol period but also a period of practical training . Certainly we all needed this relaxation after the tensions of examinations and graduation preparations. To the surprise of some and the delight of others, we discovered that first aid lectures were the ideal time, in the P.O.'s words, for assuming the "Cadet's favorite position ." On the other hand, Lt . Greig's idea of the "favorite position" was one of constant motion up and down Nanoose Mountain . He sent us there after confusing us with eastings that went north, northings that went east, etc. In addition, who can forget the day when he was on Duty Flight, spending the morning cruising around Nanoose Bay studying brass polishing and deck scrubbing aboord the Y.F.P.'s. In the afternoon one returned to continue his studies in the arts of washing dishes and scrubbing pots . Wasn't it wonderful to see graduates, including cadet officers, up to their elbows in suds and steel wool::>

The squadron parties each night and the Wing Smoker added the finishing touch to these fair days of outdoor living. Then, all too soon::>, we returned to Royal Roads refreshed, rested, and eager to return for Northbound V. N'est-ce pas?

CRUISE TO SEATTLE by BILL FOX

36

On the 29th of Apri I, 38 Seniors boarded HMCS Oriole and her auxiliary boats bound for Seattle, Vancouver, and pleasure . These were the Seniors who had passed all their exams on the first attempt . Thot night we sailed into Seattle where we were met by a group of that city's young ladies at a hospitality party. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we were turned loose in Seattle; the great attraction being the Century 21 World's Fair. The Fair seemed to swarm with cadets . Everywhere one went one could see a small group of blue-blazered cadets usually clustered around a booth containing a particularly charming member of the other sex. Although the Fair provided the greatest attraction some of the connections made at the hospitality party certainly paid off. Whether at

the Fair or in Seattle itself, a very good time was enjoyed by all . On Thursday we left Seattle and sailed to Bedwell Harbou r where we went through customs . This day was probably one of the most memorable since it was the first encounter for most of us with the misery called "seasickness." On Friday we sailed to Vancouver where 12 of us got lost in a swirl of teas and parties preliminary to the Debutante's Ball. The rest went out in the pursuit of many diverse forms of pleasure offered by thot beautiful city. On Sunday we returned to Victoria and to Royal Roods, both of which seemed very dull after the "fleshpots" of Seattle and Vancouver, courtesy of the RCN .


SENIOR GUNROOM NOTES by JOHN LEECH While the college year 1961-62 officially started on September 8 with the arrival of the First Year Cadets, or a few days earlier, with the return of the New Cadet Officers, things were not really in full swing until the weekend of September 14, when the Senior Term reported back for its second year. What a difference from the arrival of a little more than a year ago l Gone was the panic of unfamiliarity with "the System" and ahead stretched a challenging year trying ta beat it. Everywhere friendships were renewed after a few months off. Tales of summer training were swapped and stretched; we heard all about P.F.L.'s and Rofomobiles, about driving Sherman Tanks off cliffs, and about circumnavigating Vancouver Island . Happy groups of Officer's Mess or Wardroam-fed grins could be seen eyeing the new Recruits and rueing the day when P.T. would start again . While on the square new drill squads were valiantly attempting the "2-3" pause our term put away gold braid, puttees, anc wedgies, to settle in for the academic year. And quite an academic year it has been . At the date of writing, exams are hovering near; the culmination of late night wrestles with Chemistry Labs and bent Vectors, of Library searching and seminar-smoking looms close as a great challenge . The respect of the Seniar Term is extended to the Senior Staff, not only for their obvious academic ability, but also for their seemingly imperturbable patience . But there have been a great many other highlights of our Senior year which are worthy of mention. The Fall held a heart-warming " Homecoming Dance" and spirit building sporting events. And

who will ever forget the sight of rubber-booted, be-dungareed groups, surreptitiously shovelling streams into impassable mud-holes, converting waterfalls into escalators, and altering scenic beauty by adding landing nets to existing foliage for the annual Obstacle Race, this year a very successful test of the strength and mettle of aur new candidates. It was a pleasure to welcome our comrades of the Junior Term into their new uniforms during the festivities of the Fall Mess Dinner. Social events included the weekend visit of Cadets from the United States Air Force Academy, with the accompanying saccer game and Ball, and the Christmas Ball with the crisp hint of snow and leave . Standdown weekend again afforded that all too infrequent opportunity to stand easy during the "Stretch Drive" to the finals . The Seniar Gunroom Notes should ideally end in the Gunroom, the common room of our term . Whether serving as a world parliament, a dance instructor's salon, a TV. Studio, a cafeteria, a tailor's shop, or just a plain relaxing spot, the Senior Gunroom has been the centre and arena of the Senior Term, ranking above the Wing Office as the most lived-in room at Royal Raads. After all, where else can yau get everything from afternoon tea to chess lessons;> In closing, the Senior Term of '62, now looking forward to eastern climes, salutes the new occupants of the Senior Gunroom, passing on the position and responsibility of being an inspiration to a succeeding first year. May the Colours which we escorted to the Castle stand forever with the spirit of every Senior Term as the cornerstones of tradition at Royal Roads .

CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE by PAT DUNNE The white mantle of snow had completely melted away, but the spirit of Christmas diffused throughout our beautiful campus. The Castle and the grounds were an incomparable setting for an unreal and ethereal Christmas scene . The mood of anticipation for our long-awaited annual leave charged the air. His Excellency the

Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia arrived at the Castle on the evening of December 17, and our annual Christmas Carol Service in the Great Hall began. The well remembered hymns, the faultless Bell-Ringers, and the sacred words made this occasion one to be cherished long after we have departed from Royal Roads.

LITERARY A FRANK ADMISSION BY esc L S. POPE We had worried these last few days about many things; would they listen to and obey our orders, or laugh at us? When we reprimanded them, would they submit to our criticism or would they regard us with defiant eyes and yell bock: "Who do you think you are'" Our anxiety, ot any rote, was very strong, for this was new blood coming into th~ college, new faces and personalities whose owners, we hoped, would quickly learn to

put aside petty personal desires in favour of truth, duty and valour, the words by which we had learned to live. With the announcement of the Duty Cadet Squadron Leader that the recruits hod left Nonaimo half on hour ago, we donned our headdress and marched over to a position in

front of the Grant Block slightly west of the dais and facing the building. Some of the other Cadet Officers hod ~Iready arrived and others had yet to come. As we stood at ease and awaited the arrival of the buses, I noticed that September seventh was a rother hot day. The thick worm air, combined with our nervous emotions and anticipations of what was to transpire shortly, created on unusually sombre atmosphere at Royal Roads a heavy atmosphere which hung over the quiet green college like a giant cloak. A careless breeze danced down Cadet Hill and through the turrets of the Castle, and then it hurried over the lawn and the parade squa re and across the lower playing fields, the fields of praise; then it blew away and tried to defy the insolent waves upon the Straits of Juan de Fuca. These new "recruits" would be, for the next six weeks, the "lowest animals" on the face of the earth. They would be frightened and nervous creatures who would be continually yelled at, canstontly criticized, and made ta "double-off" penalties around the circle for such minor offenses as moving their eyes on parade and smiling slightly in the mess. And yet, we had prepared for their coming as jf far generals or admirals. Countless hours had been passed sweating aver boots until they were perfect mirrors. And as for brushing, never had we brushed so thoroughly and for such a long time in an endeavour to remove every speck of lint and dust from tunics and trousers. By now all the Cadet Officers hod arrived. We did not talk. We stood quietly, thinking. The last four days had certainly been very busy ones filled with briefings and instruction periods without ends, words of wisdom and

warnings, encouragements and sugge::.tians; but now we were on our own. Ever since we hod all arrived and put on our rank bars we had been living in a sort of make-believe world. At heart we were still junior cadets and we felt ourselves for from ready to fill the boots of those who had come before us. The bars on our lapel felt like meaningless pieces of metal which really had no significance, like a little boy's sheriff badge. The plaintive roar of bus engines gearing down at the bottom of Cadet Hill were their own heralds, and shortly, off to the left in front of the Nixon Block we could hear the drill sergeants herding the recruits into some semblance of three ranks. They then marched over to the upper square. As they passed by us with searching eyes we tried to hide, with looks of indignation or passive indifference, the ghastly pallor which covered our faces. As my flight was gradually formed by the Chief Drill Instructor out of the massive crowd of variously clothed individuals, I began to realize that I was having trouble keeping my shaking legs from buckling underneath me. As I took over the flight, I became aware of the fact that the next few minutes would be the most important and crucial test of all that would transpire in the weeks to come. I took a very deep breath and spoke the some words my flight leader had said to his flight one year before: "From now on you will be known as recruits. The roadway on which you stand is called the circle, and you will move at the double at all times on this circle until graduation day next June. At Royal Roads recruits are not authorized to wear watches, rings, pins, or jewellery of any kind. You have exactly ten seconds to get these things out of my sight." I raised my arm across my chest and stared intently at my watch. After a second or two I hazarded a quick look up under my eyebrows and all I could see was a flurry of fussing and tearing at wrists and fingers awkward, panicky movements as if their lives depended on it. And suddenly I felt calm. My legs were stiff and locked. My face was slowly filling with blood and it was warm. The sun caught my bars and reflected the bright gleaming light into my eyes. Somehow these little pieces of brass now seemed olive and real; they seemed to have meaning, the meaning and spirit that was Royal Roads, that had been passed on from year to year down the long red line.

WHEN THE COCK FLIES BY SIC K. C. SCHAMUHN

It was raining. The clouds hod been hugging the mountains for five doys now, and everywhere one walked the ground gave up

little gasps as boots pressed into it. Only the densest thickets had underneath their tangled branches a semblance of dryness, and underneath one such thicket, one of sevE:ral hundred interwoven across a knoll, lay Ion Koutsky.

Kautsky hated fighting . He loathed war and everything connected with it. It was almost a year ogo, he thought, that the smartly dressed Army lieutenant hod knocked on his door, and had introduced himself as a recruiting officer.

He hod said his nome was von Hoff

or von Koff Kautsky could not remember . He chuckled to himself as he recalled the lieutenant : fat, with heavy jowls and a large mustache that seemed to tickle him, for he hod wiggled his nose constantly. Kautsky remembered the words of praise the lieutenant hod for his high school record; he remembered his appeals . "Just think of the service you'd be doing for your country," he hod said. Kautsky did, and refused . Leave a job for the Army? But hi s wife final ly persuaded him and Ion Koutsky become a recruit in the

Regular Canadian Army, a port of the 2nd Batallion , PPCLI . Kautsky found that soldiering was a bearable life - at least on weekends - but he was for from happy. Then the war broke out. He pondered for a moment . That was 1950; yes, about a year ago. He thought of the days spent in sick boyar hanging over the edge of the ship on the voyage to Pusan; he recalled the rain and clouds and mud which awaited them; he recalled the day two months after they hod landed . That was when he first sow it; the little house in the centre of the bright green meadow, the rolling hills, covered in places by groves of aspen .

Koutsky remembered

that he hod been out on a patrol, and that he hod suddenly felt drowsy.

He remembered sitting under a tree , and the

feeling he hod one of drifting, drifting away from himself, almost. And then he hod seen the little house. What struck him most was the weather vane on the roof; it was a rooster with a bright red comb, a green and yellow body, and black toil feathers that seemed to flow out behind. He remembered this as being quite different from the usually block or dark red pointed vanes people put on their roofs -

quite strange, actually, to hove one so colourful.

Around the house and in the meadows were people dressed in Victorian路style clothes; everyone was laughing, everyone was happy. Kautsky remembered a little girl

that hod waved to him, beckoning him and then he had awakened. Twice since then Kautsky hod seen the little house; twice more he had noticed the colourful, queer little rooster He had almost decided to accept the invitations vane. everyone seemed to extend to him; the last time he remem-

bered reaching towards the little girl who waved to him; then he woke up. In front of him he saw his Platoon Commander, with a pistol pOinted at him. . "Koutsky," he had said, "if this ever happens again _ ju st rememb~,r before you decide to sack out you may never woke up.

Kautsky started to explain, then thought better of it. Since that time , he hod not hod such on experience ogain .

He thought to himself, This is crazy How am I going to get out of this? How . He stiffened as the ideo hit him .

Then he relaxed -

A

Cowly, fifteen yards away, rolled over onto his bock, and raised himse lf on his elbow as he shook his head . "Could be a former," he whispered bock. Kautsky ever so carefully moved from under the bush to the partially cleared spot where Cowly was. "A former? Around here? " He wiggled his foot against a toller than usual bush. Nothing happened . He wiggled it again . " Guess you could be right . Probably he figures a fox is ofter his chickens.

Cowly screwed up his face as he contemplated the "You got me there. I never seen any yet. I I He looked at Kautsky and noted that his face was wet,

in the mud clinging to

I can't toke much more."

Cowly nodded, and Dulled himself into a crouch. "Cowly?"

"Yeah?" " Look -

I said I was sorry -

"Skip it." " Figure we better go?" " 1 guess maybe so, or we'll never reach that hut. We'd better swi ng around this here ridge. You wait here

till we've all started, then follow behind . We'll meet at thi s spot here by 1315." He pointed at the mop he hod on the ground in front of him .

"See you later."

Kautsky watched as Cowly pulled himself along the ground with his forearms, until he could not see him through

the brush. Then he got on his knees and sot on his haunches. He pulled his rifle off his bock, and gent Iv wiped the water drops off the action . After he satisfied himself that there was no mud anywhere on the weapon, he

dug in hi s jacket pocket for his lost Cigarette. He gently pulled it out, and placed it between his lips. Then, removing hi s helmet, and pulling his jacket over his head, he lit the cigarette, crouching near the ground to conceal It.

He took five long puffs, blowing the smoke into his jacket, then put it ou t and returned it to his pocket . He pushed the helmet onto his head, and crawled after the section. He was forced to crowl for some seventy路 five yards through brush before he come to a scrubby forest . Kautsk y crouched lo w as he s lowly walked ahead, until he reached

i


a footpath almost grown over.

Following it for a while, he

soon decided it would be more advantageous to go through the trees if he wished to go around the knoll. The going was rough , and soon Kautsky was sweating.

He stopped,

swa yi ng slightly, and bent over to shake his head at a sudden dizziness which ove rcome him. His head felt heavy; he fancied a sledge hammer being swung against hi s temples .

With his left hand he pulled out the slightly soggy cigarette ; he stood up to s ling his rifle over his shoulder. Then he dropped the cigarette as his eyes beheld the scene before him . Stretching out for miles were green 1awns and graves of aspens quivering ever so slightly; there was the little house, and yes, there was the some colourful rooster . People

were all about, laughing and frolicking . Kautsky looked up ; the sky was a bright blue dome, broken by patches of wonderfully soft- looki ng white clouds. Suddenly someone saw him ond waved, urging him to come and join them .

Koutsky thought, Here's my chance . . . I've got to get to them"Kautsky!" He snapped around, dropping to his stomach instinctive-

ly.

Hi s vision darkened, and he shook his head to clear his

brain .

"Koutsky'" He peered to his front , and sow Cowly in the trees looking at him. He twisted his head around; the forest blocked his view. He looked up and sow a sky heavy with overcast .

Cowly started towards him. Koutsky stood up. "What's the matter?" he asked . Cowly pushed his way through a bush to his side. "The rest of the guys are way around the hill. watched to see if you were coming, and when I was sure you weren't , I came bock . You okay? Come on, let's go."

Koutsky closed his eyes, and said , " Yeah , I'm coming." He opened his eyes, and paused. " Cowly, what's the South like?" "The south of what?" "Of the States." "I dunno; kind of grassy and green, I guess "I wonder what it is and where it is," Kautsky asked

himself. "Where what is? Scy, what kind of talk is this?

Are

you sure you're all right?"

Kautsky smiled. No, I'm not all right, he thought . His eyes hardened . Oh, to get out of this war. "Let's go," he snapped. "Hello, one -

hear me?

Over."

one, hello, one -

one; how do you

Cowly listened, then repeated, "Hello,

one one; how do you hear me? Over." He waited until the campony commander picked up the phone to answer. Then he continued, " We are at grid reference two-threethree-six-niner- five . No enemy spotted, are returning . Out."

Cowly took off the headphones and gave them to the signalmon beside him .

he looked first at his watch, then at the sky.

He squinted

as he scanned the gray cover over them .

" listen' " Kautsky scrambled to his side, and the two men cocked their heads, straining their ears . Cowly looked at Kautsky. " Hear an ything?"

Cowly shook his head . " I thought I did. Scunded like a jet - MiG." Kautsky nodded, and looked at his watch . The sweep second hand moved around the face in little jerky movements; the faint ticking was barely audible to Koutsky as he stored at the watch. He thought, Just like me going round and round, never stopping.

I wish my head

would stop pounding . Wonder what the weather's like bock home Snow Jill guess she's at her Ma's with Mike . Better write soon or they'll worry; Jill's like that . . Snow bright, white, with little pinpoints of orange, green and yellow . . Sure would like to hear the crunch o f " MiG!"

Cowly screamed.

"Move!"

The seven men,

sitting alongside the shock, dived into the bushes which grew within six feet o f the walls. Cowly threw himself away from Kautsky and rolled into the brush . Kautsky did not move . The jet come at them over the hill, soundless, huge, its intake like a gaping mouth. Kautsky closed his eyes. "Kautsky'" Cowly frantically called again. Kautsky started to stand up. He looked straight at the enemy plane, but all he sow was a bright sun coming out from behind a fluffy cloud, in a clear blue sky. The hill was green with summer, and gay with laughing people who were waving at him.

He

waved bock and smiled at their beckons: then he took a step forward towards them. He thought, This time for sure . . I can toke a closer look at the rooster.

Sure is queer -

Kautsky sharply sucked in his breath as suddenly the hills he sow were white with snow; the air was filled with blowing snow; no one was in sight. It was growing dark. He screamed.

Cowly sharply saluted, o"d stood stiffly at attention. "Relax, Cowly . Now Koutsky. You soy he didn't seem to see the MiG?" "No sir; I mean, thot's right, he didn't .

From where

I was, I could see his face . I'd never seen him look like that - all smiling and happy . He hated the war ." "The plane?" "It was some kind of MiG. sir -

ROYAL ROADS AS SEEN BY SAM THE SEAGULL BY CSC W.S. YANKOWICH Oh drat, there goes that despicable whistle again, ond . oh no' not the bugler; please, not t he bugler . . . well, I suppose they're all up now . Boy-oh-boy, this getting up in the middle of the night is strictly for the humans. Gads, the revolting whistle again, and that bugler that's one cadet who is going to get IT from ME someday. And there they come, hordes of uniformed cadets streaming out of the building known as Nixon Block, some walking casually along, others running as if they were ten minutes late. To the best of my knowledge, there are twa very distinct classes of cadets that make up this herd : one species known as the senior cadets, and the other, the junior cadets. As I understand it, the main difference between the two lies in the subservient role of the juniors, and their boundless

willingness to please the insensitive seniors, who undoubtedly use these juniors as an outlet for their many unspent passions - the "whipping-boy" en masse . They've formed up on parade now for what I believe is a very brilliant display - a few select cadets yell blatant commands and the remainder of the group, known as the wing, performs various tricks. The leaders of the group, each in charge of a certain section of the wing, known as the

flight, then submit their request for a reward, and if the performance is pleasing, the human in charge magnanimously

grants the group the right to eat that morning . THE MEAL IN ITSELF IS NOTHING, but the ceremonies involved do provide a thrilling sight. For example, quite a sporting event is held before each meal, whereby each table of cadets clashes in silent mental combat with every other table in the mess to see what group will remain standing the longest time; competi t ion is keen as deep concentration reigns over all, not allowing an eyeba ll to move, or a smile to break out. At a significant paint in this contest, the spell is broken and an eight-way draw is proclaimed a most exasperating climax . The method by which the spell is broken is a ceremony in itself, the main idea being an attempt to break as many dishes as possible with one blow of a hammer. After the morning meal, it is time again for another display of diverse tricks, culminated by a very peculiar chase. One cadet stands out in front of the entire group, stamps

his foot, and all the leaders of the smaller sections immediately turn towards him. The head cadet then yells at the rest of the cadets, at which they unhesitatingly step out after him, chasing him around a huge elliptically-shaped course.

I f he is in fine form that morning, the head cadet

will easily outdistance t he pack, and will then confirm his victory with a dispersal of the entire group . The cade ts now proceed to academic instruction, for what purpose I fail to perceive . The c lasses offer a very relaxing atmosphere, and with a scintillating professor standing at the front of the class, expounding his abstruse theories on various subjects, the general mood of tranquility

slowly but invariably settles over everyone, with TOTAL mental calmness the indubitable result .

Mid-day comes quickly and once again the procedure by which the cadets earn their lunch is staged, and again the odd mess practices are executed . The afternoon session of classes begins soan after for

and a cold, metall,c VOice mumbles a questionable "STAND EASY ." I say "questionable," because moss pandemonium results at thi s sig nal , with the cadets moving with more

speed than they have exbibited all day.

Utter chaos reigns

in the changing rooms, and one can only observe that a direct contradiction of "stand easy" is predominant - a true paradox in all its magnificence. A few minutes later, the

Unfortunately, this latter effort is not very suc-

other than it is one-half the cry of on exotic bird, the other half of which is exactly the same. Once more, the some head cadet who was chased that morning yells vehemently at the remainder of the wing,

and then after placing himself in frant of the pock, steps out very slowly with the wing following closely behind. I believe the cadet is chased around the square once at this slow pace in order to show the other cadets the route

that they are to travel later, and to give them the ideo of the entire procedure . The remarks of the head cadet finally become so annoying that the wing begins to chase him at a

much quicker pace, following him very well, as he hod foolishly outlined his escape route just before. All this time, various people are sauntering about the parade square, doing

strange things .

For example, one little fellow is holding

a giant navigating compass and is constantly measuring distances on the ground; another human, quite a bit toller

and slightly pudgy, works himself into a frenzy every now and then with his rather pathetic cry,

"KEEPYOURWITSABOUTCHOO!!"

SUMMER TRAINING SUMMER TRAINING - As a new policy, THE LOG, has decided to outline the Summer training of only one service a year. In 1961 the Canadian Army instituted the "Introductory Phase," across Canada tour of corps' school designed to completely familiarize potential officers with all the different parts of the service. So it is fitting that this year's space be alloted to outline the new idea.

ARMY R.O.T.P. TOUR A tour;> That's what they said; and that's what it was' In 1961, the R.O.T.P. first year Army Cadets had a summer training period that few will forget . Instead of spending our initial summer at one or another corps' school of our choice, we were taken an a visit to all the corps' schools, a two and a half month junket through those camps of our Army which awaken nostalgia in so many Canadians, to see the changing, moblie shape of the force of our choice in all its mobile facets . The accent was on participation as our " Introductory Phase" made the rounds of the schools, from the sands, tanks, tents and sunshine

of Camp Boren, the radios and technology of Barriefield, near Kingston, the vast railyards, warehouses, and maintenance facilities of Longue Pointe, Montreal, to the flatness and the guns of Camp Shi 10, Manitoba, the parachutes of Rivers, and finally the bridges, bulldozers, mountains and guncotton of Camp Chilliwack, British Columbia. It was quite a summer. Our crosscountry trip was enjoyable and rewarding and everywhere we were welcomed very warmly. While there will linger some cynical remembrances of the capabilities and limitations of a Deuce and a Half, and although some of us will never cease to shudder at the cry "One More Hill''', we can look back an a successful experiment, and remember that as officers under training, we had a better look at the Canadian Army, than have any of our predecessors.


MILITARY WEEKEND RCN-STRAITS OF JUAN DE FUCA The clean, flowing grey lines of the ships of the Second Canadian Escort Squadron hosted this year's "Navy" portion of military weekend. Warmly greeted aboard HMCShip's OTTAWA, SAQUENAY, and MARGAREE, all the first -year RCN cadets and several Army and RCAF cadets in their second year, were treated to a day's tour of these destroyer escorts in dockyard. Introductions to the complex electronic detection and control systems for the modern armaments, were provided by the crew, who went out of thei r way to explain with pride any detail of the important fighting arm of which they were a part. The next day the trill of bo'sun 's pipes heralded the departure af the ships for the ranges in the Straits af Juan de Fuca. Under-way, the cadets were able ta see all these systems in use, pouring aver dimly lit 'scapes in the sonar roams, and abserving surface and anti-aircraft "shoats" by the sharply cracking "Three inch fifties," and thrilling to the whump of the limbo bombs . At day's end, it was easy to see that these D.D.E.'s did indeed live up to the enviable reputation which they hald in the eyes of the navies of the world.

RCAF-COMOX The long awaited military weekend came at last, and junior RCAF and selected RCN and CA(R) cadets visited RCAF statian Camox . First impressians pravided by comfortable accomodatians and the well appointed mess were more than favouroble . The excellent meals and the pleasant mess atmosphere slowly relaxed the frenzied minds of all the cadets. In the morning, after a brief welcome, we began our tour . The maintenance hanger, in which the CF-l OO's of the all-weather interceptor squadron were repaired and given pre-flight check ups, gave us a glimpse of a jets complexity . We met the pilots and crew in the ready room, prepared as always, to react to any emergency. Another hanger introduced us to the Neptune, Maritime Air Cammand's time tested anti-submarine hunter-killer. Out on the runway, an

Argus, the Neptune's big brother, waited for clearance. One of the highlights of the tour was a visit to the visual control tower and to the GCA, ground control approach . Here, as everywhere, we found it most interesting and pleasant to chat with the airmen . The safest topic seemed to be the proposed swapping af the CF-100's for the faster Voodoo. Later, we fired on the stotion's pistol range and then moved on to the CF-l 00 simulator. After a fascinating display of simulated interception we returned to the beckoning warmth of the officers' mess. It seemed that departure time arrived all too soon, and as we were dragged from our positions at the bar, we all bid sorrowful farewell to our pleasant hosts of RCAF Comox.

CROSS - COUNTRY Training for cross-country storted almost immediately upon the arrival of the cadets at the beginning of the fall term . The 4-mile run seemed interminable to most of the recruits. The seniors hod one advantoge--they hod one year to acquaint themselves thoroughly with the grounds and knew every short-cut. From among the best runners were picked the members of the representative cross-country team which took port in all local events . Padre Mowatt was in charge of the training .

The Cross Country Team C. Ducharme, R. Leitald, R. Beardmore; R. Prichard, J. Carswell, Padre Mowatt, W. Plouffe, T. Bailey.

Inter-flight finals were held on Oct. 12. The Victorian sky smiled upon the event with all the radiance of its liquid sun s h i n e. Soaked but victorious, J. G. Carswell splashes to the finish line. Padre Mowatt is on hand to congratulate him .

The Commandant of the college, 'Group-Captoin Avant, is shown here holding the starting pistol for the Nelles Trophy Race held at Royal Roods on Nov. 25 . Royal Roods' cross-country team took port in many such events and placed well in all of them, thanks to Padre Mowatt's unstinted e f for t s at training the team.

Anywhere you go, you are bound to find people who like to throw s~ones. Although we have such people, we have controlled this basic instinct so that every Saturday afternoon this group journt:ys to Esquimalt to throw

stones at red and blue rings on sheets of ice, and the rumour is that they call it a curling club.

CLASS OF '46 REUNITES Durong the week-end of June 2 - 4th, 1961 , 32 members of the Royal Canadian Naval College Closs of '44 to '46 gathered at th e summer home of the Chief Cadet Captain R. A . WISENER at Sturgeon POint, Onto roo, to observe the 15th anniversary of graduation.

70

This is the second such reunion , the first having taken place in 1956, and a third is planned for June, 1966.


The 32 who ott end e d the reunion represented over 50% of the original cla ss and the number was mode up of 12 se rving officers o f the RCN and 20 civilians. They come from as for as Vancouver and Halifax. The occupations of the civilians included 3 doctors, 2 lawyers, a former, a major oil company president and a number of engineers and businessmen. Many on hour af life as a naval cadet was relived and many on event was recalled that did not seem too funny at the time . It was interesting to trace the activities of the closs over the post 15 years and it is worthy of note that all have prospered . During the weekend, the civilians challenged the sailors to a game of baseball which resulted in an official score of 5 to 4 in favour of the civilians. It is only fair to soy that shirts were used to mark the positions of the bases and nat infrequently were the bases moved to suit what was thought to be the capabilities of the batsmen! It is perhaps m ore truthful to report that the game ended in a draw. The highlight of the reunion was a mess dinner on the Saturday night presided over by our host and Senior Cadet of the closs, Mr. R. A. Wisener of Toronto. Many toasts were drunk ond speeches made in reply. There were many ather proofs that

the past 15 years have not dampened the spirit of the RCNC class of '46 and that there is a bond between us that will result in a continuation of these quinquennial

reunions until

death do us part.

TRIBUTES

ROYAL ROADS WELCOMES PROFESSOR E. S. GRAHAM This year we welcame a new Director of Studies to Rayal Roods. A very highly qualified gentleman who wears his learning lightly, Professor Graham has joined the Royal Roads staff after an already successful career. Upon receiving his B.Sc . in Chemistry from Queen's University in 1942, he joined the Canadian Army, serving in Canada and in Europe. After the war Professor Graham returned to Queen's, obtained the degree of M .Sc . and went an to study organic chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he received his Ph .D. degree in 1950 and won several Teaching Fellowships . Professor Graham then joined the staff of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he rose to become Professor and Chairman of the Department of Chemistry. While at Kenyon College he achieved Ford Foundation and National Science Foundation Fellowships, membership in the Visiting Scientists Committee of the National Science Foundation Summer Institutions, and a guest lectureship at the University of Dacca , East Pakistan. He has undertaken extensive lecture tours in United States colleges and high schools, helped to originate and write material for a new high school

chemistry course which employs the Chemical Bond Approach , and has also been active in the Advanced Placement Program, in which he served on the Examination Committee in chemistry and as Chief Reader in Chemistry. In his first year at Royal Roads, Professor Graham has gained the respect and admiration of all the cadets . We are unanimous in wishing him success in his "second tour" with the Mi litary.

EDITOR'S NOTE To complete this LOG without giving special thanks to those people who have assisted us, would be most unjust. We are indebted to Dr. King for his guidance and assistance, and to Prof. McCaughey and Mr. Parkinson for their editing of our copy . LCdr Mitchell and LCdr Iisley deserve our thanks for assisting the business and photography divisions. Without Mr. Feurey's expert photography our LOG would certainly be more than lacking . In addition, Mrs. Spotswood receives our thanks for the endless copy which she typed. To these friends , and to everyone who assisted in this yearbodk, Thank You.
