June 1936 The Keasrne^ Celle^e Chrenicle


-2-. CROCKS. The Old Crocks' Reunion was as successful as ever# Most of the "familiar faces" were here, together with a few new ones. The match,which is reported elsewhere, was a revelation in tac tics, as us-ual, and proved that, like old soldiers, old crocks never die J After the match, brief and brightspeeches were made by Mr, Barnes, Mr. L, Cox ("Longon" and "Scrummage" of the "Mer cury", who kindly refereed the match for us), Mr.llatterson and K. Byer, .Speaking of crocks, seldom has the school been so handicap ped, athletically, by injaries, as has been the case during the past half year# Wo have seldom been able to put representative teams into the field. We sympathise particula^rly with Kc iOyer, and J, King, the latter of whom has spent many weeks in hospital following on an operation to the hip. BURSARIES. Thanks tc the generosity of two friends of the school the Governing Body has now at its disposal a number of Bursaries of maximum value £50 each, tenable up to 5 years, to be awarded on the results of an examination. Applicants have been tested in English, Afrikaans, Arithmetic, History and Intelligence, and it seems that we may find a. welcome increase in our numbers next term. SPORT. Both the Cricket and Rughy teams lost many of their star players at the end of last year, and injuries, which developed into almost an epidemic, further weakened the sides. In spite of this, both teams gave very creditable displays in most of their matches. The Rugby b.rase matches stimulated a great deal of en thusiasm, although Athlone were too strong for Clarendon usually. Cricket Committee; The Head, Mr. Reece, Dyer, Henry,Jacobs.

_4_. □LAYHtg-HT . The Play Uight this year was not as pretentious an affair as has usually "been the case in the past, and so it is difficult to iDake con^arisons. In any case, "comparisons are odorous",, Three short plays were staged, of quite different types, and each was a success. There was a good turn-out of visitors, perhaps 250, who en tered well into the spirit of the evening, — a spirit that was made the more cheerful "by the music of the quartette, directed "by Mr. Frank Wood. When the plays were over, supper was served on the verandah, but parents could not take their boys home, as Play Mght did not bring the term to a close. The.first play was a "thriller" : "Murder at Midnight",acted by three masters. Its effectiveness depended a good deal on the lighting control, and we congratulate the operator (Piper) on the promptness of his reactions. There were illogicalities in the story, but it gave us a good thrill J There was a diamond neck lace, with a legend, a revolver, the dramatic insertion ofa whitegloved hand through a gap in a curtain, a pseudo-murder (with red ink), some striking sidewhiskers, — and two crooks were each better off to the tune of £10,000. The climax came as a surprise. Secondly we enjoyed a costume play : "The King's Waistcoat"; a clash between Puritanism and the snobbery of the Court.Felicity was a demure Puritan damsel (although the angle of her feet came unstuck sometimes) who discouraged the attentions of her Puritan lover,. Zachariah, in favour of the more flashy attractions of Sir Francis Webling, who had managed to sprain a wrist the first time he met Felicity, and who, after six weeks' convalescence in her company, affected to have forsworn court life, and was preparedfor the future to be a "bucolic". His resolution, however, went the way of most resolutions, when he heard that his King, Charles, required his advice at Court, respecting a new waistcoat he had devised, — and Felicity reverted to her former swain, Zachariah. Webling was a convincing court dandy. Felicity's father, Isaac Hammond, was not quite sure whether he was a Puritan or not, al though Zachariah could nave told him, and in fact did so.' Isaac

is obviously made for elderly parts, and he produced quite ■ a blaze about the ejres, A breezy interlude uas provided by the entry of Sepington and Lady Karcourt (pronounced Hurcutt)l ob viously a pair of nouveaux riches, uhose vulgarity was 'poorle cloaked by the affectations of Court Life. jUnone other things". this scene went to prove how vastly dress and rwake-up can all ter the appearance, for the dangerous beauty of Lady Karcourt., of the flashing black eyes, was hardly compatible with the sim ilarly dangerous elbor/—work in the rugby scrnm. j?inalj-,v ,76 ho,d the very delightful "Slice of Scottish Life'- a^iive-scene play, which, if badly acted, would have been a' fiasco. In this case it was very well acted. The give and take of conversation was fast and furious, limited to one rcm.a.rk pe^' hour (the passing of the hours being indicated by tho chiming of a clock off-stage.) Movement on the sta£:G was similarly rapid being confined to that of tlio olci. woman's -knitting no0dios;(sh0 must take knitting lessons some da.y) and the rhythmic nodding cL the old mean's head on the rare occasions whon he spoke. Th.e total convGrsation could be suir-n'od up in the words;"Seex o'clock" 'Aye", "Wool, beds", "J sa?/ a coo on tlie hili. today",and twenty four hours later, theold man's considered ropljr; is it wasna a. coo, - it were a bull". This, sind the .young shepherd's reason for leaving them ^ tha^t there ws.s too much ''argy—bargying" in the hoose. The audience greatly appreciated tl^skilled and restrained acting, for any single lause would have sw-ilt th" play. Finally, no criticism of Play Kight is complete without reference to the untiring efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Oram,;dio were responsible for the productions, and who didnot allow' their forthcoming trip to England to interfere in any v;ay ?/ith their, Lor must we omit the stage hands and olcctric-wirirn installers, all of whom, hidden away in the background, helped to make the night a success. ■J",P.P.

There has heen a great improvement in the forwards, who are now a solid scrumming pack. They have in^roved in all departments of the game. The three-quarters have not really had a fair chance of settling down owing to continual chopping and chang ing, due to crocks. They have improved greatly in defence and have shown ability in attack. The House Matches have heen keen and much enjoyed hy all. We look forward to next terra and hope to have all injured play ers hack fit. MATCHES. 2nd April. vs Stanger. In Stanger. Won 11-8, All our scoring was done in the first half. Eielding a misdirected kick cleanly, Lowe put ina powerful run to open the season's score. Following a penalty goal from the 25,Thomas was given the overlap and took an indifferent pass well, to score. This try v/as converted.Piper should have added to the score,hut missed an easy pass, with an open field.

Playing with a weakened side,we were unfortunate enough to

It was only in the second half that llenwood ran riot and scored twenty six points. The team "battled nobly against heavier opponents and odds, and Thomas' try late in the game was the result of a very smart piece of work on his part. Glenwood were superior in almost every department of the game, and we would not have won even with a full side. TEM; Piper, Thomas, Stockil (c), Bazley, Morgan, Jacobs, Smith L.

Although they had numerous opportunities,they were nullified by a constant running across, leaving their wings no room to move in, Stockil scored an opportunist try after a punt ahead. The bounce favoured him and a burst of speed saw him score between the posts for Thomas to convert. Just before half time D.H.S, were successful with a penalty for foot up (5-3). Thomas put in a great run, and a fine sidestep carried him over,for Henry to convert. Before the end a D.H.S, forward dived over,The passing was, on the whole, accurate, but the centres did not give their wings enough room to move in. The forwards, ably led by Lowe,play ed veiy well.

Holding them to a 3-0 lead at half time was a good achievment, hut they ran out easy winners hy IS points to 0.

The forwards played well doing some splendid hand to hand passing, "but the three-quarters were inclined to give the hall to the wings without drawing the defence first. TEAIvI; Clayton, Rohinson, Balcomh, Rock, McPartland, Tedder, K. Theunissen, Charter, Christie, Chick, C. Theunissen, A. Raw, D. Munro, Lee L. and Lee P. vs Ehhowe School. 20th June. At Kearsney. Won S - 6. This proved a very exciting and exceedingly fast game, with the issue in douht ri^t up to the end. Early on Thomas was only just stopped hy Livcrsage, after a good run, and after that the sides attacked in turn. Liversage, at half, was very fast, hut inclined to cut across his line too much, so detracting from his effectiveness. We scored first after a splendid three-quarter move, Stockil giving Thomas the overlap. Henry just failed with an excellent attempt at goal, Liversage hrolre, and when checked on the line, passed to a forward following ip,for the equalising try. This was followed hy an individual atten5)t hy Liversage,who scored in a good x^osition after a corkscrew run. The hall swung along the line, Stockil short-rjunted, Henry raced through and gathered cleanly to outpace the opposition and score a capital try next to the posts. He converted his own try. Thus all the scoring was done in the first half. The second was as fierce a hattle as has heen seen for a long time. Both ]packs played splendidly, and our pack as a whole played so well that it would he invidious to single out anyone for special praise. The defence held, hut only after many anxious rncments on hoth sides, and when the final whistle hlew there was a sign of relief,since the tension had "been so grea,t.

-23DtpBoys N^wn ^ ^enty one Old Bqys turned up at the Royal Hotel, Durban,on Saturday, April 25th, for the Annual Old Boys' Dinner, A good dinner was thoroughly enjoyed. At the conclusion, J, H, Hopkins proposed the toast of the College, Mr, Matterson, in his reply laid special emphasis on the possibilities of the New Scheme.The toast of the Club was proposed by Mr, Reece, who indicated the service the Old Boys could do to the College by trying to inter est influential friends in the New Sdieme, K. Middleton replied. Speech-making was difficult, owing to the noise emanating fr-om* :.the rest of the Grill Room, As the '.Business Meeting is now hel?annually at the Rearshey Re-union, there was no business to discussY'iand after some further chatting the Old Boys departed in groups,(juite a number adjourning to the Road House for the rest of the evening. ^lARRIAGES. There are now over 25 narried Old Boys, The most recent additions, as far as is krawn, to the list of the Bene dicts, are: ./ D.

Here is the latest news we have managed to obtain about the Movements of Old Boys, Old Boys should remember that any news about themselves is always of interest to their contemporaries and will be gladly received by the Headmaster, the Siitor,or the Old Boys' Secretary. Tliere will always be room for it in the Chronicle. Rev. C» Wilkinson is having great success at West St.,Church, Durban. In spite of his youth, he is showing tact and leader ship associated with ministers of far greater experience. Arfrequently to be found in the daily and weekly uauers.

J.G.A.Coutts has passed all his tests at Roberts Heights,and hab-' already been into the air several times, occasionally taking over the controls. He finds the life very hard, and often monotonous— so much so that over 50^ of the cadets who went there this year have retired, finding the conditions too hard for them.' B.A.Coventry. V7hen last heard of, was also at Roberts Heightsbut we suspect he was one of those who thought fit to retire,.' • ■ J.L.Good is with the African Guarantee and Indemnity Co.,Jo'burg Branch, and appears to be doing well.

, School, STAJ7. During Mr. Oram's alasence in England, the History ant Senior English has "been taken "by Mr, J,Gates-Wilkinson, M.A., cC Cape Tonm. Mr, Wilkinson has entered whole-heartedly into the College Life and has "been well liked. As he leaves us, we wi^ him health and haj^iness in the days to come. It is with the deepest regret that we say farewell to o^or Minister, Rev,E.H,Orchard, who has ministered to our spiritual intellectnal wants for years, Mr, Orchard has heen a re-^l friend of the College, le wish him and his wife and family a happy season in Umtata. Shortly before the end of the year the Staff put on ^hree short plays, the object being to collect funds towards the pur chase of a new bus. The following were the plays "Lost - One Lunatic". "In port". "Other Times - Other Ihnners". In spite of a heavy thunderstorm a good crowd enjoyed the evening, and the bus fund benefited to the extent of £15,0.0, I'^EW SCHEI£E. It is now finally decided that the College shall be Wved to Botha's Hill, The decision has been made primarily through the generosity of Councillor C,H,Stott, who has giventl® College a valuable and ideal piece of land at Botha's Hill, near the Snake Park, As it was felt that the 25 acres donated world not be sufficient, Mr, Stott offered a further 23 acres at a re duced price, and we are gratified to state that Mr.G.J, Crockes immediately bought this and presented it to us. We are inimensoly grateful to these gentlemen for their gifts. The Scheme was brought before Conference, which was enthus iastic, and pledged itself to support the developments to the best of its ability. Committees have been formed to attend to finance and buildings. CHAPEL. The singing at the services during the past half year

-2-. i has heen a notable feature. Led "by an enthusiastic Choir, th6*^o School has roused itself from its usual lethargy, and has eved ■ succeeded in drowning the singing of one of the preachers,whos|' ■ voice is usually heard above all else. i The Carol Service at the end of the year was as great success as ever. Much of this success was due to the willing*, ness of the Choir to rehearse almost daily. The basses and teh-!\'- ors were particularly effective - almost too much so - an®/ willingly sacrificed an hour an evening in the cause of Betten' and Brighter Singing. Here are their names;-. Basses: King, Lowe, Eaton, Stockil. Tenors; Dyer, Henry, Pool^-, ¥. lobinson, Pearce. ! In Mr, Cram's absence, the Choir has been in the charge o| : Mr. Eeece. TISITOR. The outstanding visit during the half year was thalj of the President of the Conference, Rev. A.A.Wellington, with ". Mrs, Wellington, who paid us a flying visit at the conclusiono| ^ the Conference. Mr. Wellington was welcomed in the Chapel by; the Headmaster and then delivered an interesting and rousin ^ address. One statement that caused a profound impression wa& that at Healdtown the greatest pxinishment that can be meted ouf' to a native student is to forbid his attendance at School fol ' one day , Before departing, Mr. Wellington asked that a whole holiday granted in honour of his visit, EXAivIIHATIOHS; Matriculation: S entered, 4 passed, and 1 gained School Leaving Certificate, J'C. - 7 entered and 7 passed.

NUAL,PRIZ]&blYIN&. The Headiiiaster presented the 15th Annml Report, of which the following is a snmn^arcy; The Headnmster stated that n-umerically we were "better than last year, "but still far helow the peak year of 1932. More and more it vras "becoming clear that in spite of excellent/ health, sporting and examination results, we were too greatly handicap ped "by our locality. Efforts were therefore heing made to transfer the school to a site at Botha's Hill, generoua-ly doDfa-— ted hy Mr. C»H,Stott, MoPbC-, who was there that day to give away the prizes. The advantages of this site were; (1) We shoxad retain the characteristics of a country school and yet he within reach of a town^ (2) We shouif retaih contact with Durhan and those men who had already helped the school. (3) We should he at an altitude to attract parents hoth on the.coast and on the Rand, (4) The spot has a splendid reputation for healthin ess. Our days therefore on the present site were numbered, and we looked forward with confidence and optimism to the fnture. Once again the Headmaster could hoast of an unchangedstaff. This had meant farther excellent examination results, for the second year in succession we had 100^ Matric passes, and in the J.C, 5 out of 10 entrants gained a Eirst Class Pass, Per the third year out of four we had gained the only hursary available for state-aided schools. Excellent results were similarly ob tained in the Taalbond, N.C.C, & P.S.G. examinations. • Reference was then made to the necessity for Post-Ife,tric courses at schools for those boys who wished to proceed to the Universities, but were obviously too young to do so. Much had

-9-. "been said and written recently regarding the -uncertainty of ex amination tests, and, in effect, their uselessness, hut he, lAr. Matterson, was opposed to their abolition and saw their uses for Scholar and teacher. We had always paid the greatest attention to physical fit - ness, and looked forward to the time when we could have a fully trained physical expert on the Staff. On the other hand care was taken that no undue strain should he placed on the growing framex no hoy -was allowed to he merely a spectator, yet no hoy was all owed to do too much. "When free education was first decided i^^on by the Provinces, fear was felt hy many that the days of the private and denomina tional schools were numbered. The years have proved that such fears were ill-founded. More and more do parents r^llee the val-o® of the tone and influence of a sound school, and mo^ i^d moreare they willing to pay for it. I have never suggested that we caa offer parents better teaching than can the largeGoveriaaent School* hut I have said and still say that with a carefully chosen staff we can offer something in the way of moral influence vhich few Government schools -under present conditions can guarantee". The Headmaster then referred with gratitude to th» following Bursaries. £40. per unnum from Mr, W. A, Hulett. i.^0» " " "an anonymous friend. £100. " " for 5 years from Dr. Merensky. £50, n n " 5 years fran Mr. Eosenherg. £15» " " from D.S.Sinclair, an Old Boy, Gifts towards prizes from Mr.W.A.Hulett,'Mr.C.H.Stoti, Mr, J, B. Hulett. When the Headmaster's report -was concluded, Mr. C.H.Stott presented the prizes. In his address he spoke reminiscsntly of his own schooldays at Kingswood, and of his intimateassocietions with Kearsney and Sir Liege Hialett many years ago. He reminded his listeners that his own son had been educated at Kearsney. Because he felt that the schoel could do a great service to the Province, he had. decided to give the land at Botha's Hill, -sdiere he hoped the new Kearsney would grow in size and influence. it, .

-11-. ATHLayiCa' The Annual visit of the D.A.C. has become a very fixture in our very short Athletic Season. poptL. - There were some very keen finishes and two School recor broken. Stockil clipjjed l/lO second off the 220 record in an ceptionally fine run. Bazley bettered his own 880 record oy _ less than I4 sees. Lowe ran an excellent mile in 5 min sec. Four D.H.S. Juniors came to compete against our Junio-rs tr Relay race-proved most exciting - it was our race up to the tap D.H.S, winning by a foot. We extend our sincere thanks and ajpreciation to the members of the I),A.C. for making this evekpossible. Once again we were most fortunate regarding the weather riSports day. It happened to be one fine day sandwiched in betweei rainy and wind;)'- days. Seven new records were established and one equalled durh Sports week, a very fine peifcrmance indeed. The competitionf^" House Points was very keen, the Standard was very high and tSi enthusiasm considerable. Stockil »s 440 record run gained the Hulett Trophy for tlr year. A pleasing feature was the improvement in the hi^ and lorn junps,no less than three boys improving on the previous /unicr record, while Thomas only Just failed to better the Senior heig " Stockil in the Seniors and Razley in the Juniors were out standing pel-formers, Running for the sake of the house, and the absence cf per sonal triumph, was sufficient proof that the House systen hff. come to stay. Mr. Po A» Stockil very kindly presented the prizei a: .thr conclusion. A word of thanks is. due to Mr„ and Mrs. dlass, for assisting in massaging boys between races.;

On the Monday after Sports Day Stockil and Bazley represent ed the College at the Inter School Defence Force Sports held at Ladysmith. Bazley ran only the S80 which he won from a field of sixteen mmners in 2 min l6 sec. He ran an exceptionally well ju^ed race and came throrigh with a fine "burst to win on the tape from Paul of Olenwood. Stockil ran in the Heats for the 100 and 2,nd in the 220 "but scratched from the finals which were too close'to the .440* the latter he led all the way round and "but for an error of judg ment would have won it. Ball of Olenwood, however, ran a magnif icent race and won "by a yard. t , It is the first time we have entered in these sports and the two "boys are to "be congratulated on achieving such successin open con^etition, RESULTS vs D.A,C. 100 yards open.
