Another school year is just about over, and it is again my
privilege to say a word to Students of Alma through the Alma-
We have had a rather good time together, haven't we? You
have been a fine family, and I want to thank you for your friend-
liness and loyal co-operation. You have all had a part in making
Hthe Spirit of Alma,W and now we are sorry to know that some of
you will not be returning next year. But we shall follow you
with confident interest and wish you the best kind of happiness
and success. May God bless you in all your undertakings!
Others who return in September will have an opportunity of
joining with us all in the endeavor to develop a still better
school and reach higher achievements in character..
In the meantime, have a good holiday, and come back soon.

To the Students of 1938-59
It is a pleasure to express a word of greeting in this, another nAlma-
filian.n You who leave us this year take with you our warmest wishes for
your success and happiness, we shall always be deeply interested in your
welfare. You who return in September will find a warm welcome awaiting you
As a body of students and teachers we have, in these few months become wel-
ded into a true family bound together by mutual understanding, by oo-oper-
ation, and by affection.
May your year at Alma help you to establish and to maintain a harmony
with life and with the God behind life.
Edna R. Sparling.
It has been said patience is a virtue, and it must be said again,
for Mrs. Knowles' sake, after her patient work this year with her art
students. Of course, when we poor little amateurs are persuaded to
charcoal Capollo, pastel models, or paint laniscapes, we cannot help
being problems. We have been told that we will be artists and never
need to freeze in garrets--but we often wonder. It was all fun though
and we found real happiness working with one another under Mrs.
Knowles' guiding hand, out in the warm autumn sunshine and later in
the art room.
We turned back the clock for our Art Room Tea when the quaint
red geraniums and candles in stone jars decked our tea table. Our
guests chatted about our work as they sipped tea and sniffed the fra-
grant gases which rose from the Chemistry Lab. Later we mounted the
best of our display for the Alumnae exhibitions here and in Toronto.
And so another year of Wartingn is over! We look back with
pleasure to the happy hours we have spent together and hate to think
they are ended. We hope next year's art students enjoy a year as
pleasant as ours has been, but feel sure they will have to do a good
deal of hard work to have a better year than we have had.
Well at last we can talk over the old times of the commercial room
without thinking of WMessrs. Adams E Gordon's Trial Balances.
How nervous we were when Miss Johnston even mentioned taking dic-
tation from Dr. Dobson.
I have just been reading the notes Dr. Dobson gave us on Saturdays
on nManners in Business.W
We shall never forget Miss Johnston's efforts, no matter how much
trouble they caused us, to make us into good secretaries and stenographers
When we are in positions of our own we shall always be grateful to her
for our excellent training.
Alma has had another successful, rather uneventful year in the
Collegiate Department. Few bombshells have been cast in our midst as
even the regular bombardments of examinations have been less frequent
Of course we have had our days--the inspector gave us a shock or
two. We have managed to miss the odd class because of some visitor.
We had one fire drill and a few tests. Aside from these few interrup-
tions, life in the Collegiate Department has gone on so serenely that
we have not had a chance to develop nerves.
We, of the Alma Dramatic Course, do firmly agree that we have never
before spent a year we have enjoyed so fully. Our able Director has
been Miss Isabel McLean, who has inspired and guided us in our small
attempts in the field of drama. Our classes have been small but intense-
ly interesting, and we have received instruction in Stage Technique,
Play Production, Oral Interpretation, Expression, Makeup, Pantomime, and
other such absorbing subjects. With the aid and sponsorship of the
Dramatic Club, we have presented quite a number of plays and given one
recital. We have enjoyed our work and are reluctant to leave it.
To Miss McLean, and to those taking Dramatic Art at Alma in years to
come, we offer our wish for continued success.
Q dm Music
A forest full of birds couldn't be any more melodious than
Alma College. All day long, and part of the night too, pianos
tinkle, violins, and voices rise in song. Although the effect is
not always harmonious, it does show that Alma College is a school
in which music is taken very seriously.
Thanks to the Evening Music Club, we have been able to enjoy
some very lovely concerts this year. Two of the artists were our
own director of Music, Gertrude Huntley Green, and Miss Margaret
Ingram, our violin teacher.
The community concerts in London have been a delightful oppor-
tunity for music-lovers to hear world-famous artists. This year we
were privileged to hear Jascha Heifetz, violinist, the Mozart Boys'
Choir of Vienna, Vronsky and Babin, Duo-Pianistsg Marian Anderson,
contralto. No less an enjoyment have been the University Concerts,
which have also produced outstanding artists.
We are most grateful to all the music teachers for their won-
derful inspiration which has been instilled in us. Mrs. Green's
Friday morning Chapel Concerts are always looked forward to with
great joy. I am sure all music students of Alma have been uplifted
by the splendid and capable understanding of their teachers.
The best of English classes, most interesting Nutrition lectur
absorbing Cooking and Serving classes, together with a dash of Home
Nursing, have all helped to make this year the best one yet in the
The lectures of Professor J. C. Spenceley from the University
Western Ontario, and those of Miss Kerr who comes to Alma from far
Mount Allison University, have been highlights of our course.
But there are some students who have found other lectures just
as interesting. No one could possibly want to acquire the ability
to write essays and biographies from anybody but Miss Hardy. As
for psychology--well, Miss Neal of nwesternu has proved to be in-
teresting and learned. In our religious Knowledge course with Miss
Sparling, we have learned something of the background of our Christ
ian faith, and have had an opportunity to discuss problems of youth
in the world to-day.
Great improvements have been made in our Home Economics Wlab.H this
year. The walls of the main Wlab.n have been freshly painted and this has
added much to the brightness and cheerfulness of the room.
Part of our dream for the nlab.H has come true in that we have ac-
quired one of the four unit kitchens which will eventually take the place
of the old, hollow, square arrangement. We are very proud of our kitchen
with its new gas range, spacious cupboards, and drawer space. We even
have a new mix-master, which we earned ourselves by making and selling
candy and Christmas cakes before the Christmas vacation.
When the Board came for their Annual Meeting we had the fun of pre-
paring and serving tea for them.
We also have a new, special reference room, well supplied with books
and the necessary equipment.
We have accomplished much in this past year. We have learned sewing,
nutrition, physiology, interior decoration, home administration, home
nursing, and many other things.
We are very proud of the suits, dresses, and coats that we have made
as well as our needle work.
No one regrets graduating more than we Home Economic students do.
Our year here at Alma, with Miss Kerr guiding us so patiently, is one we
shall never forget. Hulda Miller.
This year the Crafts Department has surpassed all the work done in
former years. The students have taken a great interest in this study,
and it has proven one of the most popular at Alma. Suede gloves and
belts, pewter and copper bracelets, buckles, brooches, buttons and
clips are worn as smart accessories made by the girls themselves under
the able tutoring of Miss Clements.
Other subjects may not live in the memory of graduates, but when
they are reminiscing, the days spent in the craft room will stand out
as ones they enjoyed greatly during their stay at Alma.
We have all enjoyed the year of 58-39 in Junior School and we are
very sorry to see it coming to an end. We have enjoyed all our classes
and wish to thank Miss Thomson for her fine co-operation with us all.
Miss Thomson planned a very delightful Christmas party for us and
we girls had fun planning a surprise birthday party for her.
have learned little dances, games, etc., with Miss Gregory, sew
cooking with Miss Kerr and French with Miss Ross.
of the Entrance will be very sorry to leave Junior School. CWe
hoping to pass.J So here are our very best wishes to the girls
of Junior School in the coming years.

As we approach the end of the school year and graduation with
its attendant ceremonial and solemnity, perhaps the question upper-
most in our minds is this, HWhat has Alma College done for me?H
True enough we have learned certain skills and bits of know-
ledge, we have acquired certain attitudes of mind toward life as a
wholeg some of us have even earned the much coveted bits of paper
called diplomas. We have achieved the realization of our wildest
hopes in passing those nerve-racking examinations. But all these
skills, arts and diplomas mean comparatively little if they are un-
accompanied by an enrichment of our personalities.
During this year at Alma, we have had splendid opportunity for
study, healthy recreation, and good fellowship. Our lives have been
surrounded by beauty in nature, in art, in music, in literature, and,
more important than all these, in human nature. Most of us can read-
ily recall instances when our lives have been touched by the beauty
and radiance of the Christian personality of some member of the Fac-
But what of all this, unless we determine to continue in this
quest for beauty after we pass through the friendly portals of this
good old building? Let us try to make our lives like a book I once
read, entitled, nBeautiful Girlhood.H We do not have to write books
about ourselves in order that others may read about us, because
there is no book more widely read than the unconscious pages we write
every day by our daily actions. We are books in ourselves! There
is joy in the sound of the very phrase, 'Beautiful Girlhood.n What
satisfaction ours would be if, as a group of young women, we should
strive to attain the Beautiful, forsaking all things that are ugly
and sordid! And let us not be unmindful of the fact that, though
we may travel the world over seeking beauty we shall never find it
unless we take it with us. Above all dear friends, let us not for
a moment lose sight of the goal -- nlet us not,N as Dr. Riddell puts
it, Hfind beauty and lose God.n
In Friendship's Garden
Friendship came into the garden of a heart, and lo, the garden bloomed'
Now the flowers in that garden are brightg colour ripens into melody.
Music there is sweeter, because friendship touched the heart stringsg
vibrant notes swell rich and glorious. A Presence fills that garden
until clear pools of thought cleanse the soul. Inspiration like a rare
perfume enfolds all who enter there. Friendship breathed into the gar
den of a heart, and behold, there was Life!
Helen M. Hardy.
Now, it's perfectly all right for Mr. Will Shakespeare to have
WWhat's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.W
And even though this is not a discussion of that subtle literary point,
Wwhether a rose always smells like a rosen, an application can be drawn
very readily from that quotation. For a thoroughly sane person today
would never say, WWhat's in a hat?n--at least a thoroughly sane person
of feminine leanings.
As the saying goes, there are hats and hats. That is a rather ob-
vious statement, I think, and scarcely a subject for debate. Proof:
Just take a day, any old day on Fifth Avenue, Michigan Boulevard or
even Talbot Street, and what do you see? Flower pots to the right of
you, mushrooms to the left of you, and veils all around you. That all,
of course, if the day is fine. Dull, drippy weather, on the other
hand, brings with it its own array of hats.
For discussion purposes, shall we divide our hats into two classes.
A. Hats for Sunny Weather. fNote: These hats must never be worn on
days that are not sunny, for, although rain is very good for the flowers
and shrubbery worn aloft, it is decidedly bad for the feathers and veil-
ing. One cannot have that well groomed appearance, and at the same time
look like a bedraggled roosterd
For sunny days there are hats to suit all moods, to fit all occa-
sions, and to enhance everyone's peculiar type of beauty. However, in
gazing over the specimens bought, one is practically forced to admit
that any logical ideas about hats are quickly abandoned, when a woman,
of a spring day, decides that the thing to pep her up is a new hat.
What does one see as the result of such a spree? On the market, in the
midst of cabbages and onions one is very apt to find suitable little
numbers with feathers that shoot off X
at a tangent and all but blind
the passers-by. There is often x NX
a spotted veil, which obscures the vision and ff T X R
increases faulty buying. What's even worse LL3.g- f'Y.
is that garden party type of hat, that causes all to walk in single file
because of the hazards in passing. N
And there is nothing
quite like a poke-bonnet J
affect with a bantam
rooster's tail hoisted on behind.
And, too, what can be more convenient than going out to a tea in an
old fashioned motoring hat? Even upside down flower-pots are risky
enough when one is balancing a teaoup and being animated, too, in an
effort to keep up with that new creation.
It is in class B. CHats for Rainy Weather! that one finds the
staid element which proves that our fair sex is fundamentally conser-
vative. Why? Rain hats are usually last year's felt model. And what
is more conservative than a hat of last season?
M. L. Neville.
The Thrill to Diet
Chimes! Ah, here we are, the noble eight, going down to a very
filling feast of air! It is the first of the week and, since last week's
gain of ten pounds, our wills are strong, resolute, determined. Nothing
can make them bend to the desire of that bothersome organ called the
stomach, absolutely nothing! Our yearning to be slivers will be realized
Breakfast--delicious muffins, lunch--soup, and pancakes with maple
syrup, dinner--beans, potatoes, fish, and fruit salad! Ah, what delectable
meals are served that first day! Do you think these delicacies will
weaken us? Not us, not the noble eight! Why should we weaken? Haven't
we sufficient nourishment stored up?
Strangely enough, though, the week drags slowly by, and the meals
become more superb and enticing as the week goes on. Our wills are as
strong as ever, at least from the outside. Inside, however, they are
slowly but surely weakening. Now meals are no longer a pleasureg not even
in the desire to be the one who eats the least. Just to think of them,
let alone sit down to them, is agony. '
The last straw comes one morning at breakfast near the end of the
week when bran is served. I can bear up no longer. As I resolutely eat
my precious bran seven pairs of horrified eyes are turned on me. This
makes me so nervous, that before I have taken two spoonfuls of the cereal,
I begin to drop it in my lap. But, my, how those two spoonfuls bolster
I notice, however, that the barrier is broken at noon. All but one
hearken to the beseeching cries of their stomachs. Have you ever heard
your stomach cry out for food? Oh, 'tis a pitiful sound! One alone
maintains her stand to the end of the week.
Saturday at last! What a loss! Crushed and hungry the noble eight
listen to, and succumb to, the cry of the stomach as it now shouts in joy
over its victory. Once more it has been proved that to reach a state of
mind over platter is a difficult goal to attain and that few reach it.
Now, every day, we look for pie, or any other indulgence but, since
it hasn't been noized abroad that our attitudes have changed, we keep

The snow is falling very fast,
And all the people go tramping past.
But oh poor snow '
You soon will go! '
I saw a little apple,
Up in an apple tree.
I called to Mr. Wind and said
WPlease shake it down to me.n
The wind came by and shook it.
It tumbled to the ground.
I picked it up and held it.
It looked so nice and round.
The Fairy Snow Man
Little flakes of snow are falling silently all night,
And from our little window there is nothing left in sight.
I guess the fairy snow-man must have come to-night,
To drop a little snow-ball everywhere in sight.
Spring is coming very fast,
And Mother Nature now has cas
A spell of beauty all around,
And flowers are peeping from the ground.
The Last Reguest
Thy days are almost numbered, friend,
Of time there is no more,
Thy feet pursued the weary trend,
Come out ------ and look the door!
Look not behind you, O my friend,
But forward, I implore,
Thy things forgotten I will send,
But come ------ and lock the door!
Thy destiny thou'st met, my friend,
Thou hestenest to the fore.
Thine upward path again to wend,
But didst thou look the door?
What saidest thou just then, my friend?
The clouds above do soar,
Thou askest me something?--O to lend,
The Key to lock the door.
Thou maK'st request of me, my friend?
Of me thou dost implore?
That I may not forget to send
The key to lock the door.
For when thou leavest school, my friend,
When all thy tests are o'er,
Thou must remember at the end--
Go out!-- and lock the door!

Peeks out from its golden bower,
This is its triumphant hour,
As in their nests the birds do settle,
In my hand their drops a petal
Fashioned from some golden metal

It doesn't seem possible that this year is almost over, but we
can honestly say that it has been an enjoyable one. The 1939 Senior
Club was composed of a jolly group of girls who entered wholly into
the meetings, tried their best to fulfil the duties their high position
demands and certainly enjoyed to the full their privileges.

first term Jeannette Lapan was president, Frances Reiner, vice-presiden

will be carried over into years to come.
Much of the school activity is centred around the seven houses of Alma
which consists of Upper and Lower McLachlin, East and West Warner, East
and West Ryerson and Dobson House, the music students of Ingram House
entering the competition with East Ryerson. The competitive friendly
spirit that exists among these houses is very beneficial to both school
The House Flag, which is presented each term for total points in neat-
ness of.roonum neatness of person, outdoor activities and other house com-
petitions, has been distributed throughout the school this year. For the
first term, Ryerson West won the flag, the second term, Warner East stole
the coveted flag away, and the third term, Warner West was victorious.
The Junior Club
One of the very active organizations in the school this year is the
Junior Club. The club cannot boast of as large a membership as last
year, having only eighteen girlsg but in spite of its small number, the
girls in it have shown a fine school spirit throughout the year. The
club is made up of students who, after reaching seventeen or eighteen
years of age and an academic standing of sixty per cent. are invited to
enter the club and assume its responsibilities and privileges.
This year the club decided on a pin for the members. The design is
very attractive and we hope next year's Juniors will carry on with the
Our officers for the year were very efficient -- being during the
first term: President--Dot Norris, Vice President--Dot Leach, and Sec-
retary--Hulda Miller. For the second term Hulda Miller was President,
Jeanie Sweet Vice President and Reubena Rabezzana Secretary.
At the end of the year the club members followed the last year's
precedence by going to a show and lunch afterwards as a celebration of
a successful year.

Miss McLean arrived at Alma College on the evening of April l in her
autogyro and introduced us to a glimpse of Alma in 1979. By this time
the College had a male staff, service bells, a telephone in every room,
and Coca Cola served between classes.
As we looked into Miss Hardy's English Class we observed many of
the students Win nsgligee,N and each with a sufficient supply of kleenex,
apples and chewing gum.
After the students had refreshed themselves with a WCoke' we saw
them in Miss Gregory's physical training class where Miss Stewart gave a
very good exhibition of a dance of Spring.
Next we found Dr. Dobson conducting a class in business etiquette
and interviewing applicants for a position in the College.
When we arrived at one of the practise rooms, Miss Neville and Miss
Smith were pracitsing their lessons.
Finally bringing the show to a close, Miss Swain and Miss Stewart
gave a demonstration of a bridal couple from an old family album and
sang WO, Promise Me.'
On arriving at the gymnasium we found there an orchestra prepared to
play dance music for us. After we had had lunch it was time to go to
But long will we remember the gay time we all had that evening and
wish to express our sincere thanks to the Faculty.

Paul Kirkpatrick's orchestra completed the aquatic picture. On a brief
stop-off at the island of red carnations, all went ashore for a delicious
lunch. But alas, all too soon the ship turned homeward. Even when the
music stopped, everyone, not realizing the ship had merely reached its
port and sensing only disaster, rushed for the lifesevers on the deck.
After all had regretfully disembarked, the girls took leave of their
partners and the Senior Prom, but they had tucked away happy memories of
that Bon Voyage.
'Hello there! Welcome to Hillcroft!' Dr. and Mrs. Dobson, our
hostess, received us by these greetings, and saw that we had everything
needed before they left us for a perfect week-end at the farm.
A farm I said? You should see it. A nice white house with a large
porch on the river side, flowers all around. It is a very modern farm
with all the commodities of a town house, electricity, radio, and I just
heard that soon there will be a gas stove. But we had such a good time
with the wood stove! That's where you really show your farmer's ability!
And also your cook capacity!

is the most beautiful event in the life at Alma. It is an
to be remembered by the students.
Queen is chosen four days before the ceremony and is
vote of the whole school. The choice is based upon the
best qualities of an all-around girl. She must be a good student, a
good sport, a girl to whom we can all look up as an example of the
finest type of Christian girlhood. Two Counsellors are chosen by the
school to attend her, and the Lord of the May is chosen to place the
Crown on her head. The May Queen is also attended by May Maidens and

The weatherman did his best tc keep us from having our skating

Although the guests doubted the possibility of our having a skating

the band which had been hired for the occasion, hustled off to the city

Wwell, my lad, I guess the loveliest thing I have ever seen was the
Candle Lighting Service at Alma College when I was a girl. It made
so real you could almost reach out and touch it. All the girls
and teachers, with their parents and friends met in the Chapel first for
of Christmas music and worship. The Chapel was hung with spicy
evergreen, and two tall candles burned at the front. I can still remem-
ber how beautifully Miss Hardy told the story of 'The Other Wise Man.'
At a certain point in the service, when everyone had been given a taper,
we lighted each other's tapers and walked reverently from the Chapel,
singing as we went. That long procession of light wound through the dear
familiar halls and up the main staircase, until the tapers formed a
living spiral of flame. Standing on the stair steps, we sang several
carols, and Dr. Dobson led in prayer. In the sheer beauty of
the moment, many eyes were damp. Then the lights came on, the enchant-
ment was broken, and the girls went down to speak to their friends. But

Alma Athletic Association
we are indebted to this worthy group for the organization of our
sports. They have had many successful meetings and have solved our
problems. Its purpose is to create a greater interest in athletics
and in doing so, has helped us improve our ability. So we say to the
A. A. A. of the coming years--carry on with the good work.
Alma Field Day
One of the best days of the year is when we all gather on the
west lawn for competition in track and field events. The houses pre-
sent their songs and yells under the leadership of their cheer-leaders
In mid-afternoon, refreshments appease the hunger and thirst of the
athletes. At dinner time the girls march down in houses, garbed in
attire of their imagination, singing their songs. After the banquet,
ribbons and cups are presented to those victorious. Warner East won
the meet as a whole, while Dora Carnrlke won the Senior Cup, Vivian
Wilbur, the Intermediate and Catherine Otton, the Junior. All in all,
field day at Alma is enjoyed by everyone.
with the coming of the winter months, the Basketball season began
in earnest. we had some excellent games and the keen competition made
this sport very enjoyable. To end the season a banquet was held for
the four teams in honour of Brescia--the winners. Thanks, team for
your fine co-operation.
At the beginning of the year, baseball was a favorite sport. We
had many enthusiastic games among ourselves as well as the games
played at the Western meet. Although we were not victorious in this
line, everyone enjoyed playing on the team.

Skating and Skiing
Skating and skiing are very popular sports at Alma. The skaters
enjoy themselves on a large private skating rink at the back of the
college. The skiers are taken out into the country in a bus, where
they are left to indulge in this exhilarating sport.
If you have ever
ridden in a bus full of girls, you will realize how this adds to the
fun of the occasion. The pleasure derived from skating and skiing

Many people have terrors of horse-back riding, but not the girls
at Alma. If they ever did have any such fear it was quickly dispelled
by the competent guidance they received from trained helpers. Those
who were advanced were allowed to 'hit the trail' by themselves.
Riding is an exhilarating sport and once addicted to it, it claims all
of your Monday mornings and spare time too.
Many interesting events have taken place during this year in sports.
Swimming has had its share of popularity and every day after school, the
girls have been in, learning new stunts and dives under the able guid-
Miss Gregory. The Inter-House Swimming Meet took place Jan. 20

Diet Table ----- by Isabel Alexander
I hopped on the scales as gay as could be,
I started back, frightened, my poundage to see.
Surely, oh, surely this weight can't be mine!
Why wasn't I born like the type that just pine,
Worry and worry, grow thinner and thinner,
And never must go without any dinner?
The problem of slimmers did worry me sore.
The answer was, simply, NDon't eat any more.n

Whose figure is rather too heavily laden,
And ply myself with a measuring tape,
All for the sake of my unruly shape.
