Alberta ©allege EDMONTON 1927-28 Foreword A NOTHER year is drawing rapidly to its close. Another ■ ■student body has come and gone. Some will sever their connection with the College and will take their place in the business and professional life of the city and province. To these the traditions of the College have been passed on and the life of the province has been enriched by this annual contribution of young men and women imbued by the highest ideals of service. This is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of Alberta College. Twenty-five classes representing in all over twenty-five thousand students have registered for some courses at this pioneer educational institution. The College follows with greatest interest the lives and careers of those who have been its students since the first year of its estab¬ lishment in 1903. The aim of the College is not only the acquisition of knowledge, the passing of examinations, but the develop¬ ment of the highest capacities of the students in practical activities. It seeks the harmonious cultivation and system¬ atic development of the normal faculties of intellect, feeling and conduct with the idea of training for some specific thing in life or for life in general. The College stands for Chris¬ tian leadership and emphasizes the fact that the highest life is the one most intimately connected and related to the life of the Master Teacher of Nazareth. Our greetings go to all former students, to those who will leave us at the end of the College term and to all pros¬ pective students as they look forward to making a worth¬ while investment of their lives. In the past twenty-five years there have been great achievements. May we all be worthy of the fine traditions of the College and look forward with the expectant hope that even greater things will be accomplished in the years to come. Mores Sunt Maximi. F. S. McCALL. 4 AURORA BOREALIS The Academic Department “To court the nine Muses, come youthful aspirants, Beseeching- that God’s will their mandates obey, Compelling attention like grandest of tyrants Assembling themselves in glorious array; Come, fill up your glasses with the oldest of wine, And pass round the courses—let each to the feast, Who will for these Sisters a laurel entwine Shall soon be the greatest though now he be least.” W HILE our apparatus is not of a musical variety, nor our vocal equipment particularly melodious yet our theory anticipates focal harmony and our practise promotes mental unity.. It is true that the 8:30 and 4 o’clock classes remind one of Chardybis and Scylla, as something to be avoided yet, nevertheless, like Ulysses’ sailors we may learn to accept a challenge. It is certain that no sweet strains lure the un¬ wary to the feet of Hermes, notwithstanding knowledge grows from year to year. The Academic Department is not the “Fairy Land” of Beethoven, on the other hand it is not the “Red Sea” of the Egyptians. Throughout each day one may hear the hum of voices in the conning tower; an occas¬ ional “ha ha” to punctuate the discourse of the teacher and less frequently the argumentive prattle of the juniors from their forum in the boys’ cloakroom which is located in the basement, it is equally certain that other less musical notes are heard floating through the air—some from above, some from below, and some from nowhere in particular, for in¬ stance jazz from the Common Room, razz from Arthur’s Baby Grand, and rattle of live coals from off the altar—I mean coal heaver’s shovel—thus we meet the Muses all the day. There are two new ventures this year, a new class in English, exclusively for New Canadians, taught by Miss Hickerson, assistant to Miss Field; also a senior matricula¬ tion class of twenty-two students. The former have now forsaken the halls of learning for the fields of culture, agri¬ culture, of course; the latter, however, are still a vigorous and flourishing group. While the day of reckoning hovers above us as a blanket of clouds by day, and a pillow of fire by night, yet it is safe to predict that, out of the haze of mid-day, and out of the smoke of midnight, there will come a glorious morning on or before July 1; sounds like a lien, not a siren note. There have been several changes in our staff this year. Miss W. M. Coone, B.A., is the classical instructor, Mr. Elliott Birdsall, junior science and mathe¬ matics, and Mr. Fisher, B.Sc., the senior science and mathe¬ matics teacher. Several misadventures have befallen us this year. Miss P. H. Woods, Lady Dean, was unfortunately removed to the AURORA BOREALIS 9 Athletic Society J Who misses or wins the prize Go lose or conquer as you can But if you fall or if you rise Be still, pray God, a gentleman. First Term Second Term Hon. Pres. Mr. McKerlie Mr. McKerlie President G. Hibbs C. Greiner Vice-Pres. A. Elgaaen M. Gaetz Secretary M. Aboussafy B. MacLean N EARLY every favorite sport was in vogue at the College this year. Skating, hockey, tennis, baseball and basket¬ ball were indulged in during their respective seasons. Skating was a favorite pastime during the winter months and every Friday evening, and oftener, those students who could skate enjoyed themselves on the college rink. The girls did not organize a hockey team this year, although they did, on occasion, pursue the elusive puck and attempt to damage one another’s shins. There was plenty of good material in the boys’ team and some very close and interesting games were played with outsiders. It is of in¬ terest to note that the gang from McDougal Hall took the boys from the main building into camp to the time of 6-2. At the time of going to press tennis is a very popular game. The two courts are much in demand and some of the players are far from being beginners. We hope to see some very good games before the examinations interrupt our sports. There is promise of a good baseball team this year. Almost all of the boys can catch well. The one game played with an outside troop so far, was with the Ukrainian In¬ stitute, the crew that always managed to get the extra score in hockey; and the victory to our boys of 11-1 was thoroughly enjoyed. The boys from McDougal Hall again showed their superiority when they inflicted a defeat on the tribe from the main building. The girls are organizing for indoor baseball. They are also drawing up schedules for inter-class basketball games that will be played on the College basketball court. A few games between the academic and commercial girls were played last fall, and the academic students are hoping to revenge the defeats they then suffered. Most of the boys’ basketball is played at the Y.M.C.A. and judging from the improvement of the players our con¬ clusion is that the “Y” is a good place to learn. The students thank the College Board for the provisions that have been made for sports. 10 AURORA BOREALIS Upper Row—Jospehine Jennings, Margaret Cameron, Dorothy H etherington, Faye Murphy, Vera Stuart, Blanche Hackett.

AURORA BOREALIS 11 “The Aurora Borealis” F IRST of all, it is not a newspaper, for it contains neither divorce news or political flumgummery. Then it is not a serious review for it is funny in parts, and on the other hand it is not a comic paper for it is a serious matter, indeed. If you like it, show your appreciation by sending us a sub¬ scription. (You will find the address on the front.) If you don’t like it—a contingency so unlikely as to be absolutely absurd, accept our apologies, sympathy, and regrets, but don’t expect your money back. Our motto is “What we have we hold”. But why explain our paper? It is like modern poetry—it admits no explanation. You will agree with us (if you have read as far as this), if you have not, your agreement will be doubly sincere, that we have written enough, and if we have said nothing, re¬ member that all we were asked to do was to fill a page, and the quicker the better. In order that you may decide whether we have succeeded or not, we will leave a space during which you may arrive at a decison. ( . ) Ladies and Gentlemen—The Aurora Borealis Thanks You!

The officers were: First Term Second Term Hon. Pres. .Miss Coone Miss Coone President Margaret Gaetz Alfie Elgaaen Vice-Pres. Edward Hancock Lester Saunders Secretary Alison Yeats Velma Lawrence A meeting was held every two weeks on Friday eve¬ ning. Varied programmes were given and on one occasion Miss Burkholder gave a very interesting lecture on “The Birthplace of Edmonton”. We were entertained by Mc- Dougal Young People at a social evening held in the church. On October 31st a very jolly Hallowe’en party in the form of a masquerade was given by the Literary Society in the basement of McDougal Church. Prizes were presented for the best costumes. Dr. and Mrs. McCall, Mrs. Smith and Mr. Hyndman acted as judges. A new system was introduced this year for supplying the various programmes, that of making the different aca¬ demic grades, and the Commercial students responsible for the meetings. Several skating parties were held on the College rink during the winter months. Miss Montgomery, of the Extension Department, of the University, recently gave us an excellent talk on the value of good reading. Before closing for the season we expect to have a de¬ bate and treasure hunt. FOR QUALITY MEATS Fresh Fish and Poultry are obtainable at all our Sanitary Meat Markets as listed below: P. BURNS CO.

A LBERTA COLLEGE not only offers its boys an oppor¬ tunity to obtain an education, but also affords the best methods of directing their surplus energies in helpful chan¬ nels. We consider that the boy has a four-fold nature which, to do him justice must receive an all around devel opment. Under the able leadership fo Chas. Forsythe, better known as “Charlie”, the boys meet twice a week at the “Y” for B.B., group games and swimming, and in these activities the boys have taken considerable interest and have acquired marked ability. A Tuxis group has been organized by the director and as such meets on Wednesday night in Mrs. Lucas’ studio in McDougall Hall. Here the intellectual, social, and devo¬ tional nature of the group receives attention. In these func¬ tions individuals are taught leadership, comradeship and co¬ operative responsibility. Group singing and debates form part of the program and various addresses on current events have been delivered in an interesting and impressive man¬ ner by such men as our principal, Dr. F. S. McCall, and E. A. Corbett, M.A., of the Department of Extension. Every Sunday evening a service of song is held in the commercial hall for those who enjoy a devotional half-hour. On behalf of those who have benefitted by these activi¬ ties and have derived a broader outlook on life, I wish to thank those who have contributed to our profit and edifica¬ tion.—J. D.

It is composed of its own members together with the Presidents of the various societies and one representative appointed by each President. It has control of a council fund, exacted from those re¬ siding in the College, with which it keeps a supply of ath¬ letic equipment, as well as to meet expenses incurred by the various social activities of the students. A treasurer keeps records of all incomes and expendi¬ tures, and these records together with those of last year’s council have proven themselves very helpful during the year. We hope that future councils will improve on our work from year to year, that we might look back and call ours, a college for advancement in every respect. I EXCEPTIONAL VALUES IN FURNITURE, DRAPERIES AND CARPETS Edmonton ' s Pioneer Furniture Store is showing, this year, what we believe = to be the most outstanding display of up-to-date furniture ever shown in Ed- | monton. It includes all grades, so that the person of moderate means can get = just as good a selection for their needs as those who want to furnish on a | more pretentious scale.

The staff was fortunate in being able to obtain much information regarding the pecuniary statements of the paper from the editors of the previous year. Worthy mention must be made to the Grade XII. students who helped the staff to compile the substance. We also appreciated the work which Mr. McKerlie did on the Advertisement Committee. The term “Dux femina faciti” can best express the thanks to Vera Stuart and Blanche Hackett for their assistance. The staff itself, though starting late in the season, worked well together, and hope the paper will be a success. PIANO SUPREME!

Dr. F. S. McCall presented Elliot Birdsall, who was first president of the students’ council, with a handsome president’s stick tied with blue and gold. The cane was made from the first pulpit of McDougall Church. Following the presentation, the re¬ tiring president installed James Hilbery, president-elect in office. Dr. H. R. Smith acted as toastmaster of the evening. Following the Christmas banquet, prepared for some one hundred and twenty-five pupils and staffsmen, E. Birdsall proposed a toast to King and Country and W. E. Richards responded. H. Fisher, boys’ dean, dealt with the cultural influence of the College and W. D. Henry replied. Miss Woods, girls’ dean, welcomed the guests, while Rev. W. Gaetz responded. The students’ organizations were dealt with by Kathleen Lord. This toast was responded to by Margaret Gaetz and Lester Saunders. The ladies were not forgotten in Clarence Greiner’s toast to them, to which Miss Coone replied. James Hilery made a toast to “Our College” and the Principal, Dr. McCall replied. The Glee Club presented several songs under the leadership of Miss Coone. Musical selections by Mr. I. Williams, J. Lopushinsky, W. Hendra and H. Wild were very much enjoyed by all, as well as a reading by Mrs. Burns. Elliot Birdsall, Alfie Elgaaen and Bernard Perry re¬ ceived medals for obtaining highest marks in departmental exams for grade eleven, ten and nine respectively. Mr. Henry moved a vote of thanks to Mrs. Betts com¬ plimenting her on the excellence of the menu. Dr. and Mrs. McCall entertained the resident students of Alberta College on two successive Friday evenings, Seniors going the first Friday and Juniors the second. Every¬ one enjoyed the contests, games and stunts. Prizes were awarded to the winners of the contests. A delightful lunch was served at the close of the evening, after which the students thanked Dr. and Mrs. McCall for the enjoyable evening. The evening was brought to a close by singing Auld Lang Syne. Mr. Fisher: “What is the formula for water?” Margaret Cameron: “H. I. J. K. L. M. N. 0.” Mr. Fisher: “What makes you think that?” Margaret: “Well, you said it was H. to O.” 18 AURORA BOREALIS The Canadian Girls in Training First Term Second Term Hon. Pres. Miss Woods Miss Woods President Josephine Jennings Blanche Hackett Vice-Pres. Elspeth Allan Jessie Mason Secretary Jean Gilbertson Jennie Johnstone The C.G.I.T. meetings were held every Wednesday evening at 6 :45 p.m. in the Common Room of the Girls’ Residence. The Honorary President, Miss Woods, in con¬ junction with the Programme Committee, arranged for a programme of addresses and other interesting items. On different occasions Dr. and Mrs. McCall, Mr. Gaetz, Mrs. Tuttle, Miss Burkholder and many others gave instructive and interesting addresses on various subjects. A number of the meetings took the form of general dis¬ cussions led by Miss Woods. One evening a camp-fire was arranged around which the girls sat to discuss questions which they had previously handed in. The girls of the C.G.I.T. had a party at Christmas. An excellent programme of music, dialogues and recitations was provided. After the programme an enjoyable time was spent in playing games. Following the lunch the girls were pleasantly surprised when Margaret Gaetz dressed as Santa Claus distributed the gifts from the Christmas tree. A Valentine Tea was given by the group in the Common Room on the Saturday nearest to February 14th. The room was prettily decorated for the occasion. The proceeds will purchase a picture for the Common Room. When the weather improves we expect to enjoy a num¬ ber of educational trips. luttU ' Hs flhutu Portraits and Groups 10526 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton j | I = Phone 2953 Established 21 Years I AURORA BOREALIS 19 The Glee Club D URING the fall term, Miss Goone, one of our teachers, who is very talented in music, consented to direct a girls’ “Glee Club”. With the help of our Lady Dean, Miss Woods, the club was organized. Miss K. Lord was elected President with Miss A. Yeats secretary. The club met every Monday night and Satur¬ day afternoon. The girls had very enjoyable times at all these meetings, and on various occasions such as the Hallo¬ we’en Party, “Annual Banquet”, Sunday evening sing-songs and Literary Society meetings gave fine selections, showing their marked ability in this line of work. The college is pleased with the work of the club and we hope that what has been ably begun this year will be carried on and further developed in future years.

They always have words of encourage¬ ment for the students now attending, and inform us, that if we make an honest effort, and assimilate what our teacher gives us, with such a grounding there should be little diffi¬ culty in becoming efficient operators. The Standard Railway Rules (about three hundred in number), were taken up during the winter months, practi¬ cally all the students making one hundred per cent, on the final examinations. The list of those who have graduated from the Tele¬ graph University of practical knowledge is a long one; we will only mention a few: Thomas A. Edison, Andrew Car¬ negie, Melleville E. Stone, Sir William Van Horne, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, C. R. Hosmere, were all telegraphers. Seventeen telegraphers became Presidents of large railroad systems; on the New York Central alone, four tele¬ graphers became president of the company. Nine tele¬ graphers became cabinet ministers, six telegraphers became presidents of large telephone companies, and eleven tele¬ graphers became presidents and vice-presidents of large banking institutions. Many more might be sighted, but this will suffice to show to what extent Telegraphy is used as a stepping-stone to something better. Lives of great men oft remind us, We can make our lives sublime, And departing leave behind us, Footprints in the sands of time. —“Longfellow.” During the past few years, some of the young men from this school have become press operators, dispatchers, chief operators, etc. Mr. Max Edgar, a former student, who for the past two years held the position of night operator at Edmonton, has been promoted to the position of day chief operator at Vancouver, which is one or the most important offices on the system. Telegraph and Telephone Age, a semi-monthly, pub¬ lished in New York, is supplied by the College for the bene¬ fit of the students who take a keen interest in the “Course in Technical Telegraphy”. Many other items of interest on new equipment, etc., for telegraph offices appear in each issue. —J. DUNCAN ROBERTS. AURORA BOREALIS 21 MRS. BETTS W ITHOUT some mention of “Mother Betts” this annual would indeed be incomplete. She has rightly earned the name “Mother”, because of her care and kindness to us all. When we are sick it is for Mrs. Betts we run; when a social event or picnic is planned her advice and good council are sought; and when our soup begins to show signs of weakness, we immediately report our distress to one who always listens patiently to our many complaints real or otherwise. Mrs. Betts understands students and student life, per¬ haps partly because of her long association and mingling with them. Even before she came to this College she was carrying on the same work and was much loved by all with whom she came in touch. The students feel a great depth of gratitude to Mrs. Betts and in years to come they will always have pleasant memories associated with the matron of Alberta College. Jean Gilbertson: “Has this salad any vitamins in it?” Mrs. Betts: “Oh, no!—There’s nothing like that in our food; you’ll find everything perfectly pure.” ITOWN THROUGH THE YEARS U THE PERSONAL LETTER HAS BEEN THE BINDING LINK IN THE CHAIN OF FRIENDSHIP.

PERTINENT PUNS DR. McCALL SAUNDERS forth across the MOORE until he came to some KNOWLES by the BROOKS. He RUBBRA far into the KNIGHT at the animals. The YOUNG BULL was in the WOODS, with a BELL around his neck, while the king FISHER flew across the FIELD into the DALE below, where there were many HILBERY’S. He stopped to hear the BIRDS-ALL singing in the trees when a VALLANCE ZIMMERMAN started to play a FYFE. Thus in this MOODY began to ROMO-ver the days when all the farmer’s sons, namely CARLSON, WILSON; GILBERTSON and JOHNSON went hunting MOOS with their ROSS rifles. One morning a CAMPBELL was heard. They hastened to assist and found that a group had lost DERPACK and SPILDE coffee which caused many BURNS. They had no weapons except a BOWEN arrow. The leader of the group had been a MASON in his HRONEK days. The second had been a traveler who had journeyed on many rivers includ¬ ing the FRASER, NELSON and ST. LAWRENCE. The third was a MILLER. His name was JOHN STONE. On his HIBBS he carried a bottle and a pair of OXFORDS which was a LAMPLEY sight. The last member of the group was a BARBOUR but had been a gold-SMITH in his former days. His name was ALLEN STUART. He being thirsty said, “LETTS get a drink from the WELLS”. So they dashed through the GAETZ and went GILPIN down the hill where they saw a HASS with ARNESON. The beast SCHWEIT¬ ZER tail and GREINER teeth till she kicked over the TRACEY’S and made an awful MESSERVY. To PONICH her they had to COOPER up in the MAC DONALD where she YEATS some GREEN MURPHY’S. They took a KERR down to feed himl some CRUMMY’S when they caught ELGAAEN from TURNEGA COONES which were in the LORD’S VILLETARD. The HARROLD MAYO RANNEY a sliver a MILNE long into his foot and became lame. CHRISTOPHERS and MONTGOMERY were CORNELLED in the cafe by two WATSONS while waiting for an ice cream SUNDLIE. Mr. Birdsall is taking up politics. His intentions are to be able to get into the House of Lords. People are known by their diet. Mr. McKerlie to Eva Lee: Now, I understand why you eat so much apple sauce. Outside an engine raced and roared while inside the speed students were peacefully taking dictation. The noise from the outside was deafening but above the roar we heard Miss Jamieson say: ‘I can’t hear, there is someone talking in this room.” AURORA BOREALIS 25 v PHYLLIS H. WOODS, M.A. P ERHAPS one of the most outstanding lights in this “Aurora Borealis” is our Lady Dean. Miss Woods graduated from and later taught at Mount Allison Uni¬ versity, New Brunswick. She came to Alberta College about two years ago, and al¬ though the experience was new and the change great, she adapted herself very quickly to our western life. Besides being our Lady Dean, Miss Woods is a very competent teacher in the Academic Department. Her classes are noted for their discipline and attentiveness, although she has never been found to conceal any law¬ restoring weapons. It is a certainty that the students of Alberta College will always bear pleasant memories of Miss Woods. ELEGY ON THE DESPAIR OF THE MAD PAIR Meet us at Johnson’s the little note read. With his heart in a whirl up the stairs then he fled. Jack soon donned his coat, put his hat on his head. While Ross quickly borrowed two dollars from “Red”. Down at the corner of Jasper and First, Their hopes running high were soon shattered and burst, Returning again feeling downcast and blue, Hope had turned to despair in the souls of the two. «!•,-hu -»-....-it-au- hi -....-....-....-....-....-....-....-....-....-....-....-un-....—....---■■-....- | HOT CREAM WAFFLES and PURE JAVA BOSTON COFFEE at | LOUIS WAFFLE SHOP Louis Has Made Waffles for Years i I Phone 6086 9989 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton 26 AURQRA BOREALIS OUR ALPHABET A is for Alice, we have more than one.

He has succeeded Mr. Pat¬ terson and has very success¬ fully fulfilled his duties in this capacity in a fair and unprejudiced manner. Be¬ sides being dean and teacher he takes a decided interest in the boys, their activities and inactivities. His work in the classroom covers mathematics as well as the sciences. His quick wit of¬ ten enables him to use every¬ day illustrations to scientific advantage. His humor often brightens the dullness of classroom monotony. Our dean is English by birth but Canadian by preference. He has had twenty years of ex¬ perience teaching in public and high schools. His B.Sc. was secured at the University of Alberta.

Why there is such a family resemblance between cer¬ tain boys and girls who are not relatives. 4. Why some people must learn to play the Banjo. 5. Why some boys are tall and slim and others short and stout. 6. Why some people are always late for breakfast. If they don’t hear the riser, why not? 7. If “red” is warning or aggressive colouring. 8. Why teachers are on duty, and what would happen if they weren’t. 9. If every minute is worth a cent why so many Scotch people waste so many minutes. 10. How a boy’s straight pompadour changes overnight in¬ to a marcel. 11. Why brain waves can’t be made permanent. Visitor: Can you tell me if Florence Lampley is up in her room?

And golly! How they curse their years’ long folly, Idle waste; Hours! Nay weeks and months they’ve squandered, As their thoughts and footsteps wandered Now in haste. They endeaour to recapture, Time they spent in idle rapture But in vain; Father Time will not be cheated, And their course must be completed, Once again.

He was a boy—and he was tempted; besides he liked melons. “I sneaked up to that cart,” said Mark, “and I stole a melon. I went into an alley to devour it. But I had no sooner set my teeth into it than I paused; a strange feeling came over me. I came to a quick resolution. Firmly I walked up to that cart, placed the stolen melon where I got it from, and took a ripe one.” 40 AURORA BOREALIS CHARACTERIZATION OF A COLLEGE WEEK Monday—General search for laundry slips.
