Doctor Me A Christmas I remember well when I got my Tinkertoys and doctor kit. The stethoscope and other tools were cool and I got a lot of use out of them but the pills were sugar pills that were so good!

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.

Avery Brundage Avery Brundage was the only American ever to become president of the International Olympic Committee--a position he held from 1952 to 1972. He was also the most controversial IOC head. Brundage had competed at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics in the decathlon and pentathlon. He later acquired significant wealth from his contruction company combined with some shrewd investments. His vast fortune skewed his views of amateurism. Since he was independently wealthy, he could not see why every other amateur athlete could not be self-sufficient too. As a result, Brundage believed the only true athletes were amateurs. He denounced pro athletes as entertainers. Brundage rose to become head of the United States Olympic Committee by 1936. That year he controversially allowed the American team to compete in the Berlin Olympics despite heavy public pressure to boycott the Nazi-themed Games. He personally disqualified one notable female American athlete, swimmer Eleanor Holm, for allegedly engaging in immoral behavior on the team's ocean voyage to Hamburg. (Years later Holm claimed she had rebuffed the married Brundage's advances and he suspended her out of spite.) After the 1936 Games, Brundage openly praised Nazi Germany's economic resurgence and newfound national pride. By 1952 he became head of the IOC and a staunch defender of pure amateur sports, saying that the ideal Olympian should be a Renaissance person with many interests--not just the financial benefits of being a pro athlete. Critics labelled him "Slavery Avery." Despite being anti-communist, Brundage was impressed by the Soviet Union's national physical fitness programs and was instrumental in getting the USSR into the Olympic movement. Brundage was still at the helm of the IOC at age 85 in 1972 when a terrorist attack killed 11 Israeli team members. Brundage called for a day of mourning and then insisted the Games continue-- a decision still controversial today. In one of his final public speeches as IOC head, Brundage favored abolishing the Winter Olympics because of their growing commercialization. He died in 1975.
