Husted. … Mr Bennett junior championed the cause of their former captain with considerable warmth … Mr Goddard [said] he had felt the unpleasantness of being deemed an undesirable member for holding the escape-foremanship on account of his living out of Eton, although he spent most of the day in the town … He objected to being stabbed in the back, and if any member had anything to say against him let it be said to his face. … Mr Hetherinton thought that as escape-foreman Mr Goddard was the right man in the right place … [Mr Dugdale was re-elected] … The other appointments were:- Foreman, Mr Hetherington; engineer, Mr W. W. B. Hill; escape-foreman, Mr F. E. Goddard; sub-engineer, Mr Bettridge; committee, Messrs Plumridge, Fountain, Goddard, Hill, and Bettridge, while the latter was asked to again take up the duties of canteen steward. … On the proposition of Mr Baker, seconded by Mr Hollyer, a vote of thanks was heartily accorded to Mr Ingalton Drake …’

April 1925: Junior Department “A”: ‘On Saturday, March 14, we had our Scholars’ Tea Party. Tea was prepared by the teachers, and served in the tea room, and what a sumptuous feast it was (beef sandwiches and jellies being an extra brought by the teachers). After tea we all went into the Primary Room, where we sang songs of all kinds until we had sufficiently recovered from the glorious effects of our heavy tea. Then came the time for games; nearly every game one could think of was indulged in, and what a rollicking good time we all had. We were all feeling hot and merry, when a kind invitation came from Mr Brown to go into the Centenary Hall to see the operetta “Aladdin and Out”. Needless to say, we didn’t need asking twice. Our boys and girls really had the time of their lives, and the interval arrived all too soon, when we retired to our Classroom, and once more feasted ourselves with oranges and sweets, kindly given by two of our teachers. Thus our happy time came to an end, and one would imagine that each child went home feeling really happy, and thankful for having had such a good time. We thank all teachers and friends who helped to make this party such a complete success.’

Fifty-second Annual Meeting of the O.Y.S.A.: Held in the John Bright Library, Bootham School, York, on Saturday, June 7th, 1930. Arthur Rowntree presided. Eric Bellingham moved that Norman Black, one of Bootham’s very distinguished scholars, should be appointed Editor of Bootham in succession to Gurney Braithwaite. He endorsed everything that had been said about Gurney Braithwaite’s hard work for the magazine. The work was exceedingly difficult, but he put his back into it and made it very successful. It had been suggested that there should be an assistant editor from the school, the idea being that the school should be better represented in the magazine, and he proposed the name of Sidney K. Brown for the position of assistant editor.
Seconding the resolution, that Norman Black and Sidney K. Brown should be appointed and that thanks should be expressed to Gurney Braithwaite, S. H. Clark said that in addition to having made the magazine pay its way, Gurney Braithwaite had also been able to reduce the subscription. He certainly put in a great deal of hard work. The motion was carried.

Athletics Report: Conditions were verging on the ideal for our Athletics final – it was fine, but rather a gale kept blowing down the field. The track was in perfect condition, thanks due perhaps to the worms at last co-operating with our esteemed groundsman, Mr Carr. Training was curtailed a little owing to an outbreak of mumps, but this apparently had no effect on the runners. R. J. Ingham repeated his last year’s performance by winning the Senior Cup. He is an exceptionally strong runner, and won the Mile, Quarter, and High and Long Jump. O. C. Rowntree was runner up, 3 points behind. E. H. Rowlands won the Junior Cup, with R. L. Sturge, runner up, only one point behind, and it was left to the last race (220 yards) to decide the championship. Bedroom XVI won the trophy with an average of 22 points, and completed the double by winning the team race as well. At the conclusion of the racing Mrs S. K. Brown presented the cups.
