SchddlNd^Ss. STAIT; Mr. and Mrs. G-. M. Oram returned at the end of January;, after a six months visit to England. While there Mr, Oram attended an Education Course at Oxford University and was suc- ——sessfull in gaining the Diplcina. ■ ^ Sister Attlee and Miss Eraser went on leave at the end of the first term and travelled to England where th^ have attend ed the Jubilee Celebrations of the St. John Anbulance Brigade.As their visit coincided with the Coronation Eestivities, they not only saw than at close quarters but took part in them officially and there is no doubt that they will return with many splendid manories of the pcmp and circumstance that England provides on these occasions. Sister K. Anderson took over Sister Attlee's duties for the .. second term and was unfortunate enough to have rather a busy time with illnesses and injuries of one kind and another.However .; her patience and care were unfailing, and we trust she is to en joy a well-earned holiday. Miss A. Boyd deputised at the Pr^ for Miss Eraser, and, spent a very happy terra with us. Our new Chaplain, the Eev. J, Martin White, took up his duties at the beginning of the year, and we are glad of this op portunity to record a very sincere welcome to him and to Mrs. White. They both charmed us all loig ago, and we trust that they will enjoy their stay and their work in this circuit, and in the College particularly, CTTAp-RT.; At a Hecognition Service held on the last Sunday morn- ; ing of the term, the following were received into fullmembership:t of the Methodist Church Bentley P..C; Chaplin S.Hi Chick J.A; Groves l.H; T' Macdougall K; Mark R; Smith L»C; Vermaak L.J* Wood J.B; . OBITUAE?; We very much regret to report the passing on 30thI<Iarch of the late Mr, W, B, Roberts who had served the College so .ii

-2-. faithfully and enthusiastically as Secretary and Manher of the College Council, We owe a great deal to him for his patience and devotion in difficult times, and shall ever treasure his memory Ydth affection and regard. We have lost a great and ahle friend, ^ and one who never stinted his services, no matter how frequent the call that was made upon them. We shall miss him much. We our sincere condolences to his wife and family. YALE.' Even so quiet a spot as Kearsney is not left untouched the hand of time. In the last few years the surrounding land scape has altered immensely as the grass hill-sides liave heen plou^ed up and turned into acres of waving sugar-cane. And now comes a change in our neighbours and friends as Mr.J.B.Hulott re signs the management of the Tea-estates and leaves Kearsn^ with his family to reside in Durban. We shall miss them very much, for Mr, "J,3," was always one of our staunchest friends and has ren dered us very much appreciated assistance ever since the College was established. Eo appeal to him in a difficulty ever fell ondeaf ears and we are ^ad to express here our gratitude to him for ar ranging timely assistance on the pl.aying field and in the engineroom on many occasions. He and his family followed the fortunes of the College with a personal interest which we hope they will retain even thou^ they cannot now remain in such close touch with us. And for our part, we extend to them our very heartiest wishes for many years of happiness in their new home in Durban, BHTEliTAIMBHTS; The only "imported" entertainment this Half was a conjuring display by an Indian "prince" of the Art, His manipu lation of ropes, rings, eggs, cards, his eating of burning wood and his death ly stabbing arid subsequent coming to life again,suc cessfully intrigued and mystified the School and a number of visi tors. Various "young gentlaneii" and one who was excluded from that category assisted him with ccniposure and satisfaction,but the most distinguished and the most able of his assistants wasundoubtedly that member of the Staff who entered into the affair with so much good zest that he was persuaded not only to swallow an egg whole, but also, after a weird and wonderful series of platform ]peregrinations, to lay it again in full view of the audience and to the accompaniment of. their delighted cheering. Several bioscope shows were given during the Ife-lf.One evening was given to the showing of an interesting film made by Mr, Orara

■Tf .f / ■ r ■ -3- :* , during his stay in England, and this was followed "by a film. Of St. Lucia and Richards Bay and a most spectacular one of the Satie Game Reserve made and kindly lent "by Dr. G-raham of Dorkan, THE BUS; The School has at last got a new "bus, and this time the word "new" is to he taken literally and not euph^istically, for she really is hrand new and not fourth or fifth hand. A Pete was held at the end of the first term to raise funds for her pur chase, and sane account of this successful function willhe found on another page. The chassis of the new vehicle is a Chevrolet and the hody was huilt in Durban and accommodates twenty-four. The maiden journey was made to Eshowe on May 15th, and was care fully hut triun^hantly accomplished in the capable hands of Mr. Medworth and Mr. Milner. As there is no one else's wear and tear to irJaerit, we look forward to a long and happy friendship with our new blue monster of the road. AMUAL PLAY: The Annual Play, performed before a crowded aud-- ience on the last night of term, 24th June, was "Richard of Bordeaux". This choice was appropriate for two reasons, first, the Shakespeare play prescribed for Matriculation deals with the same gentleman, Richard 2, and secondly, a spectacular costume production was suitable to Coronation year. An account of the Play by a kindly critic appears elsewhere in this issue.Twenty seven boys took part, (not counting those who worked so effic-' iently behind the stage) and the twelve scenes were produced af ter seven weeks of arduous rehearsals. COROHATIOIT DAYS. The School found difficulty in celebrating Coronation Day as a community, for May 12th and 13th were, of course holidays, so most of the boys took the opportunity of getting away. About twenty remained, however, and these spent the afternoon and the evening of the 12th at the celebrations in Stanger, while the following day was ^ent at the beach. Those who reached Durban enjoyed seeing the pageant provided by the schools there. ITEW SCHEME; Pr^arations for building at Botha's Hill are pro ceeding quietly perhaps but persistently. The architect's plans and a Brochure to be used as the basis for an appeal for both Kearsney and Epworth are to be ready by mid-July. When these ap pear, there is no doubt that a forceful can^ign for funds will.

-6-. Debatihg- Sdci&Yv: The Debating Society has been having rather a quiet time pending the awakening of some vigorous spirits to breathe new life into it, and rehearsals for the play also removed it further than usual from the centre of interest. Three meetings were held however, and the most interesting was that of 3th April when two Old Bqsrs very kindly came up to address the Society. Mr.A.T.Winship read an informative paper on "The law, conduct and procedure of meetings" and Mr, H. Middleton spoke ill-uminatingly on the progress of mechanisation in banking.Both addresses aroused plenty of interest, as was evidenced by the number of questions asked afterwards, and both speakers were accorded a very hearty vote of thanks. ThEt-AnnualFlav. "RICHAED OF BqgDEATJX". In some ways this was the most ambitious production the Dramatic Society has presented. There are greater plays, of course, and better known ones have been presented at Kearsney from time to time. Yet none can have been more difficult to produce than "Richard of Bordeaux". If a play has a clearly defined plot, it is easy to hold the attention of the audience. They are too engrossed in the development of the theme to be critical of the characterisation; as long as the story proceeds at a merry pace, one overlooks flaws. But if the play has little plot, one has time to be more critical, and the production needs to be more polished. "Richard of Bordeaux" comes under the latter category. There is no scintillating plot, veiy little action, no melo drama and little humour. The play reveals the gradual rise to power of the young

-7idealist, Richard, (son of the Black Prince), in face of the sternist opposition on the part of his counsellors, — and final--- ly his misuse of his ■newer, leading to his decline andabdication. - •r. ■ Richard was set on making peace with Prance; in this ideal*' he was encoixraged by his wife, Anne. The Duke of Gloucester,;-.; Lord Arundel, and others vehemently and noisily opposed him; they; spread malicious lies about him, and had some of his closest; friends put to death on the gro^unds of treason.But he persevered.^ and even't'ually succeeded in having Gloucester and Arundel mur-' dered. Previous to this, he had lost his wife, of the plague. Having gained power, Richard now used it ruthlessly, turned the ■ people against him, and was finally deposed by Henry, Earl of Derby, his cousin, who ruled as Henry 17 in his stead. A As the plot is fairly thin, the play must stand or fall by1 the polish of the actors and the general atmosphere. The effec- " tiveness of the latter was heightened by the very striking cos-, , tumes supplied by African Theatres. They were magnificent and ; invariably suitable. Inasmuch as Richard wore a different cos- . timie almost every time he appeared, and there were over twenty characters altogether, one can realise how effective a pageant■. thpy made in themselves. ;; r*' With so many players in the cast, it is impossible to crit-jr icise all, and difficult not to offend by a selection. Theref were no failures. One or two, however, gave the faintest im pression that they were reciting their lines; the ladies had a little diffic-ulty over their gowns; and one or two speakers, no tably Richard, were sonetimes inaudible at the back. But these were minor flaws. ; Richard was on the stage almost throughout; no mean feat' in a play lasting nearly 32 hours. The mantle of John Gielgud. fell worthily on Pearce's shoulders. Hobody else could have taken the part; no one else, in fact, was suited to it. He was' - in^jressively tender towards Anne, madly angry with Gloucester,op timistic, persevering, ruthless, or resigned, as occasion re- (juired. It was a long and strenuous part. There can be no doubt, the strain of the continuous rehearsals had affected him; .onplay night he was a tired actor, and a good deal of what he said was not heard at the back.

-g-. Anne acted well and spoke clearly, with a cleverly affected foreign accent. Her death scene was very effective, hnt it is a great pity that some members of the audience should mistake tiagedy for comedy. Of the rest, without going into details, Gloucester was loiid in every sense of the word, and held the stage while he^was on it; his acting was ftO.l of vigour, and much as one disliked the character, one respected the actor.Arundel, with not a large part to pl^, was also convincing. De la Pole spoke clearly confidently; RolDert de Vere introduced a note of brightness, un til his final scene, when he accepted his disgrace with hnmiiity but coura,ge. Heniy, on. of oiir best actors, was always good; insufferable at first, inexorable lat3r;we enjoyed Theunissen's presentation very much. Mo.vbray looked a fine figure and acted naturally; liauclelyn, on the stage a good deal in a fairly silent capacity, acted very well at the end. As has been said before, the actors needed to act well, for we had time to study them,. AnSL, thinking back, it does not seon that any one of them left an unfavourable in^ression. ?his in itself is sufficient praise to the actors for their concentra tion, and to the producers, Mr. & Mrs. Oram, for their untiring efforts throughout weeks of rehearsal. It was the general opinion that the audience was the big gest up to date. J.P.H. mMlLTJS PERSOFAB. Maudelyn, a page, and later Richard's Secretary ... ... ... ... HAW, J,D.

-10- . . ,.:?0n Satvirday afternoon, 3rd April, a Fete was held in the •College grounds for the wortl^^ ohject of raising funds for the pTirchase of a new school "bus, (a really new one), so on that day there was an unwonted air of excitement and activity quite dif ferent fran the calm dignified routine of the ordinary school morning. Books were packed away in desks, and desks were taken away to the gym and other distant places in order that the class rooms might he free for occupations that many people and all schoolboys think more enjoyahle than the sober habits of book study. Hags and bunting soon fluttered from tower-staff.balcony and palm trees; tables appeared on the verandah and were quickly covered with maroon and silver paper and later on with such di verse necessities as books, cakes, sweets, needlework,toys, cab bages and pumpkins, while in various shady corners of the front lawn there was noted the mysterious arrival of wriggling sacks which closer inspection revealed as the temporary cages ofducks, Leghorn pullets, and a sucking pig. About mid-morning, in a more secluded spot, a solitary bull-calf could be seen tethered in dismal state, dejectedly looking round to wonder what all the fuss was about. Away among the flower beds below the Sixth Poim class-room, two or three squads of boys seemed suddenly to have developed a rather unreasonable passion for gardening, for there thqy were poking in the ground, one with a spade, and others with anumber of iron pegs that they left standing there as if hopeful that thqy would grow into girders or scaffolding. Enquiry revealed the exciting information that th^ were burying treasui'e, five shillings in one spot, ten in another and fifteen in a third, and for a correspondingly graded entry fee the generous visitor was to be invited to stab the defined area with one of the num bered pegs. He or she, (for there is no sex differentiationwhen you are money-making) whose peg was nearest to the treasurewould later on be allowed to walk off with it more brazenly than any pirate, though I believe there was a veiy earnest intention to attempt to persuade him (or her) to lose it again very quickly by spending at the stalls or other side-shows. It is bad form to keep one's gains at bazaars and fetes J

-11-. 'i Between the trees and the hedge outside the pr^ "building, what appeared to "be an elementary carpentry class had "been en-* gaged for a whole succession of afternoons erecting funny little-? wooden "bridges and "barriers that "began "by looking as ifth^were; the "beginning of miniature fortresses, and ended "by lookingjust what they were, plain "bits of scrap wood jutting up inhaphazard| fashion from the ground; here was a short, deep trench as if' dug for a toy soldier to hide in; there was a rectangle of nails arranged point upwards as if to trap a miniature cavalry charge; somewhere else, at several places in fact, were a few pieces of tin looking as if it were time the guardsman came and swept than up a wierd landscape indeed, like a C.T.C. Bazaar gone awry.' But on Saturday afternoon what a centre ofinterest it was for old gentlemen and young gentlemen alike.' Indeed it was a "battle-ground after all, and you had to pay a shilling to fight on it.' Many people paid several shillings, they found it so thrilling, or was it that the losers insisted on endeavouring to retrieve their lost reputations ? For men are very sensi tive a"bout their golf, even their midget golf, and will not readily admit defeat and confess that they cannot do "better than that last round. This miniature golf course (forsuch we ou^t to have said it was right at the "beginning of this stupid para graph) aroused apjparently enormous am'bitions, and in their sat isfaction or disappointment, there was great gain for the cause of the school "bus fund. Coming back to the main lawn again, on the lower portion Mr, Jack Hulett had erected an ingenious shooting gallery -vTith moving targets that were a constant attraction throughout the afternoon. One of its most superb features was the noncha lance of the attendants who, it seemed, were as ready to stand behind and beside the targets as anywhere else, and yet did not suffer so much as a single pellet in the hand or face or any other part of the anatomy. The shooting visitors were evidently as accurate as they were keen .' There were other side-shows in plenty, most of them very furtive affairs, such as lucky dips, smelling liquids hidden in • bottles and feeling strange things in a mysterious looking bag. The tea-room and the ice cream vendor did a good trade and the stall holders won the support and interest that was the best reward for their devoted labours. The OLD school bus occupied

-12-. a place of honour on the lawn, and was used as a handstand from which was broadcast music from a radio-gramophone. She looked veiy well, for she had been thoroughly cleaned up (perhaps not very tactfully) for the occasion, but as a matter of fact she told me in a confidential whisper that she was merely putting a brave face on an altogether sad affair, and she well knew that there was not one of the company around her who was not ready to give her a good kick down the hill to find what last resting place her wohky wheels mi^t take her to. Well, very few vehicles can do over 90,000 miles and retain the affection of those who travel in her, can they ? A goodly number of visitors turned up and spent their af ternoon and their money in a most pleasant way. Our special gratitude is due to Mr. C. Jackson, not only presenting the calf and pig, but for seeing that they were sold for us in a very amusing auction towards the end of the afternoon. The success of the fete was well prepared for beforehand of course by the organizing^nius and inspiration of Mr. Medworth who acted as Secretary and man-of-all-parts. The financial result was the very gratifying one of €115 and it has made possible (withother resources) the acquisition of the new bus to which we havelooked forward for so long. We extend our thanks and acknowledgements to the following ladies and gentlemen who generously assisted us as stall-hold ers:- Cake Stall Mrs.Matterson & Mrs, Seece. Variety Stall Mrs.Oram and Miss Sybil ailett. Produce Stall Mrs.O.Balcanb. Book Stall Mrs,E.Hindson. Sweet Stall Mrs.Milner.

-13Ihick^t, It has "been a featixreless term's cricket. The First XX had only three matches, other than practices, the heing cancelled on account of rain or lack of conveyance. The matchpelsayed were all won, thanks to consistent, hut not bril liant, hatting, and the good howling of f. Smith. Jacobs hatted well in practices, hut is beginning to show signs of impatience, which will prove disastrous unless curbed at once. Of the other batsmen, Smith is patience personified. HThere have been rather bigger scores in the Alphabets than usuall these liave not been due entirely to iii5>roved quality of batsmanship, for too mary runs come from purely^ agri^turai strokes. Most of those showing the best form will not be with = us next year; their form is simply the cumulative result of many years of cricket. Best scores were: Boyd (64, 64, 53)1 K„ Theunissen (40, 35._29), D- Raw (40, 32, 25). Bazley (72,26), • Chick (67, 33), Eaton I (63). Promising form was also shown by mton IT, Putterill, and kobinson 11Bowling honours were shared by Bazl^, Chick,Druramond,Char-^ ter, Boyd, Cuthbertson, Balcomb and Rock. Bazley was the • with analyses of 6 for 6, 6 for $, 5 for 12, S for 24, 6 for 24, and 6 for 24» Tlie Preo. had one game a week. The star turns here are McPartland, Coutts, Lee, Sparks, and Medhurst. They were to be found -playing stump cricket outside the lab. at any nour of tiie day. If thqy keep it up th^ may play for the 1st XI seme day. MATCHES. At Kearsney.

Ohe Juniors show great promise, particularly Jiark, Sock & Cuthhertson. The results have "been quite heyond expectation.

At fly half he. imtiated many fine movements and scored two excellent tries, and on defence he saved his team, times inn-umerahle. Clarkson at cqntre tried hard to'make' Bill Payn on the wing hut failed. Alex Smith at scrnm half was soundness personified. With plenty of weight and intermittent dash in the forwards, the threes were well fed and we were called upon to defend desperately from the outset. Gage scored first from a neat short punt and Bill Payn converted, then Clarkson gave Bill Payn the overlap and five steps and he was over in the corner (S_0). Alf Walker and his brother, h. Walker, had done wonderftd work in the line out, while Adlam showed surprising speed and agility. After half time we saw more of the ball although the forwards were tiring in the set scrnmswei^t will tell ' Jack Gage once again set the line moving and Allsoppbroke neatly thou^ well tackled hy Piper. Prom the ensuing loose scrum Barnes secured and dived over (11-0). Jacobs sold a neat dummy and sped for the line, a second dummy and he scored a splen did try between the posts for Lowe to convert (11-5). W. Smith given his only chance, set his teeth and sped for the corner, di ving full length to score a splendid fitting try (ll-g). Marshalling their forces and all reserve energy,the warriors tore down^ the wing. Pirst a movement to the left was checked by a ma^ificent tackle of Piper's, laying Payn low, then Bazlcy stouped a dangerous looking move on the right. Out to the left again where Gage sped for the line and dived over in the corner,putting paid to our account, the final whistle sounding immediately.

Old Boys in general would do well to give some thou^t to the question of how the evening of this annual celebration should be spent, as it seems desirable that a policy that is agreeable to all should be arrived at before the next dinner.

2. SCHOOL NOTES STAFF; The Head Master was given leave of absence during the last q^uarter of the year in order that he might be free to undert^e a campaign for raising funds for the New Scheme Mr. J, Gates-Wilkinson M.A. who was with us during the last half of 1936, rejoined the Staff and took over the JSaad's work for the last term of the year, NEW SCHEME; The necessary preparations continue to progress, and we are pleased to hear that in his can^jagn for ftmds for both the Epworth and Kearsney Schemes the Head has been very successful, A total of £60,000 is aimed at, and of this £25,000 may be on loan but the remaining £35,000 must be raised in donations. So far the Head has secured promises amounting to £25,000. The appeal is held uj) over the Christmas Holidays, but it will be resumed in Febniary. We are glad to record here two outstanding donations. The Pretoria Conference very readily voted £5000 to the, joint scheme, and Mr. J. J. Crookes has generously promised £12,000 for the building of one of the new Kearsney College houses. Meanwhile the Kearsney Building Sub-Committee has been discussing the first draft plans and the architects, Messrs. Payne and Payne, are now busy revising theni and get ting them into final shape. It is hoped tp be able to call for tenders by March. ' (BITUAHY. It is with great regret that we record the pass ing on August 1st of Mrs. A.S.L. Hulett, the wife of the Chairman of the College Council and Mother of two Old Boys. We offer our sincere sympathy to him and to his fainily. Mrs. Hulett was a gracious and much loved lady for Whose support and interest we have often been grateful. .

3. CMEEL In the last tenm Sunday morning services began at nine o'clock instead of at ten, and in view of the warm weather that often seems to make itself known specially on Sundays, the change was generally popular„ The bees however are no longer a source of acute discomfort, as they have now been effectively shut up with in the roofo We owe this cause of rejoicing bo the iniative of Miss 0, Balcomb and to the practical work and oversight of Mr. Prank Balcomb v/ho generously gave up several days to seeing that the necessary repairs were carried out. We are very grateful to these good friends of ours for undertaking the work„ They also had the old bee stains cleaned off the walls and woodwork and some fresh paint added; so the Chapel is now looking fresh and tidy again The Carol Seiwice was held on the last Sunday evening of the term, and a. large number of visitors enjoy ed the singing. The members of the choir had worked hard and willingly, and their names desexwe to be recoided; Basses: Vermaak, Eaton (i) Metcalf, Mr. Heece. Tenors: Bayley, Eaton (ii) Weston, Bentley, Mr, Medv/orth. Trebles: Clayton, Crowder, Munro (ii), Brown, Lowe (ii). Chambers, Putterill, Lund, Wessels, Blake, Jackson. ATSl One of the most exciting events of the Durban July season, was the air race for the Governor-General 's Cup. The race was won by an Old Boy, W.H, Bulett, who was also the only Fatal-born entrant. We heartily congratulate him on his success, and thank him also for the extra day's mid-terra holiday by which it was recognised. During the term the School heard from him a most interesting though a very modest account of his winning fli^t. EFTEHTAIffiiEFTS •On Saturday July 31, the Musgrave Road Guild Dra matis Society very kindly visited us and presented in

4. the Hall "The Dover Road", a comedy in three acts. A audience of visitors thoroughly enjoyed the play, and Mrs. D. Evans, the Producer is to be congratiilated on the eparls^ linff manner in which it was performed, A. T. Winship h^ the chief male part, and gave a very excellent characteri sation indeed of the rather eccentric but very human Mt, Lattimer. The perfoimanoe was in aid of the Old Boys ■ Endowment Fund, and resulted in the collection of a sum of about £6. In addition to the usual bioscope shows duri^ Half the last Saturday night of the term was enlivened >y a coneeft to which our good friend Mr. Jack Fowler contri buted a prodigious amount of humour in a very generous:);/ larffe number of items; Mr. Casey, Ventriloquist amused an4 amazed us in dialogue with his soldier doll, ^d Mis Fraeer and Mr Beece played pianoforte items, etc., were much appreciated. f TEMSPQHT . , , ,. t The" College is to have a second bus.

The College has had a clean bill of health except ior a few cases of measles in the third term.

I am afraid that the close conneotioti mental and physical health is not fully many a long year schoolmasters have emphasised the nece® ity for a sound body if we areto have a sound mud. Bu.

7. feel that it is the soiind mind that really counts and, on which emphasis should be placed, and am convinced that the sound body will follow. In referring to the New Scheme, the Headmaster said "A year ago I mentioned the names of two gentlemen who had presented us with 53 acres of land at Botha's Hill — a gift which inspired hope and laid the foiandation for our efforts towards a move. Today I want to bear tribute to a host of friends who have contributed large and small sums towards our building funds, and while it would be invidious to pick out names when not infrequently the small gift has meant as much personal sacrifice as the large one, yet there are two names that can be referred to without slighting anyone,. The first is that of Mr. W. J. Williams, chairman of the Committee to deal with the moving of the College. To his enthusiasm we owe more than I can possibly say and I am sure that it was his skilful presentation of our case that persuaded that hard—headed body of men, the Methodist Conference, to make the handsome donation of £5000 to the dual scheme. The other is that of Mr. J. J. Crookes whose gift of £12,000 for one of our boarding houses brou^t the whole scheme into the realm of practical politics, and has enabled the Committee to call for full plans, with tenders etc. to follow, I want our friends here to realise that while wo have sufficient money already promised for us to take our faith into both hands and make a start, yet the full amotmt we need is not yet assured, and I hope that those who have not yet decided to what extent they will help us, will hesitate no longer but come forward with a definite promise of help during the next 12 or 18 months. "Never has the responsibility that rests up on teachers been so great as it is to-day. Rival -creeds are being dinned into our ears; there is a terrible over emphasis on racialism and nationalism, and we know that the future vision of our pupils to a very large extent depends on us. One thing alone withstands every challenge: the teaching and ethics of Christ. Yet in the training of
