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. P. S. Dobson 6 TIIE A.LAlA F1l.IA N C5776 Qfdfl 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. Affectionately yours, Edna R. Sparling. 7 DEPHRTIUEUTS Fine Art 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. Emma Smith 8 - Comercial 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. Collegiate igpartment 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 this year. 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. Isobel Alexander Dramatic Art 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. Dot Norris 9 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. ----Betty Hill. University Department 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 University Department. 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. 10 G of HOM ECONOMICS 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. CRAFTS 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. Mary Vair. ll sr 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. We ing and We are all 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. E.

IQ 21 9 Literary ieag? Inspirational Reflections 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- ulty. 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 Wilma Samlalsingh. 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. 22 HATS Hats Now, it's perfectly all right for Mr. Will Shakespeare to have Juliet say, 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 25 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. 24 QB fffftf 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 yet. 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 me up! 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 getting fruit! Margaret McEwen. Junior Literary Section The Snow The snow is falling very fast, And all the people go tramping past. But oh poor snow ' You soon will go! ' Poor snow! Rachel McKay. 25 The Apple 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 Elizabeth Mckay 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, t And flowers are peeping from the ground. 433 el! fb A k ' 4 Joan Davidson Jean Penhale U W. Senior Poems 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! Forsythia The forsythia, a lovely flower Peeks out from its golden bower, This is its triumphant hour, Its hey-day. As in their nests the birds do settle, In my hand their drops a petal Fashioned from some golden metal Of the May. 27 U Margaret Hunter I. Alexander Clubs Senior Club 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. Our officers for the year were extremely efficient and during the first term Jeannette Lapan was president, Frances Reiner, vice-presiden and Wilma Samlalsingh, secretary. The presidency of the second term was filled by Frances Reiner, the vice-president was Margery Darby, and Wilma remained secretary. To the Senior Club of 1940 we wish to extend our best wishes and we Know that you, as Alma students will put yourselves whole-heartedly into the activities of the year. Jean Lounsbury. S. C. M. what could be cozier and more homelike than a group of happy girls sitting around a fireplace in the dimly lit Common Room, discussing problems of great evening uFires1de do with things of interest to all present! Such were our Thursday Chatsn led by capable leaders. All the topics had to personal interest to the girls of the S. C. K. On the last Sunday evening of every month we took charge of the Chapel services which were held in lcLachl1n Hall. On all occasions the meetings proved most enjoyable and beneficial. Our capable President for the year has been Miss Anne Corp. At all times we have Here at Alma wiie organization created this year had the co-operation of all members of the faculty. we are indeed fortunate to take part in such a world- and we feel sure that the interest which we have will be carried over into years to come. Jean Grieve. 28 t .g g A4 L The Houses 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 and student. 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 insignia. 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.

Thorn Davison a.? 30 Social FACULTY FROLIC 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 bed. But long will we remember the gay time we all had that evening and wish to express our sincere thanks to the Faculty. on G5 J 31 As the boat S '79 This year's S. S. Alma. This an enjoyable but SENIOR PROM Senior Prom was held on Friday, Jebruary 10, aboard the luxurious liner left 'Port Alma' about eight-thirty for brief southern cruise. glided through the white caps, the rippling rhythms of 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. Billie Gough M33 '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! There are a lot of lovely spots around where the Day Dreamers can go Just across the road or the river. Hiker and excursionist are in their glory. The sad part of a week-end at Hillcroft is that you have to come back. We are very thankful to Dr. and Mrs. Dobson to give us the opportunity of enjoying a real week-end of peace at Hillcroft. Jeannette Lepan 32 May Day event always The May elected by a lHg..1-...T .1L 4...A May Day at Alma 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 Musicians. The ceremony is held in the beautiful Amphitheatre which is espe- cially lovely in the springtime with all the apple blossoms and flowers The Crowning of the May Queen at Alma is a lovely ceremony, full of meaning, appealing to the eye for beauty as well as to one's highest feelings. Joy Hartley Skating Party The weatherman did his best tc keep us from having our skating party, but, thanks to Dr. Dobson, we had it in spite of the rain. Although the guests doubted the possibility of our having a skating party, most of them had arrived by eight-thirty. Everybody, including the band which had been hired for the occasion, hustled off to the city rink where a Wscrumptiousn time was had by all. Finally it was time to return to the college, and, although we had to leave the fun, we found that a comfortable chair and something to eat suited us to perfection. After a few dances and the customary farewells the guests reluc- tantly made their way home through the rain. 55 'I -irzlf'-TE'5,, 45 v , ,.s. f- - nun: The Candle Lighting Service - - and it was the biggest tree, all covered with pretty lights. Now Grandma tell me something you have seen at Christmas time.' 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 Christmas 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 a service 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 Christmas 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 that my child, was the very loveliest thing I have ever seen at Christmas Jeanie Sweet. The Water Carnival An hour in Fairyland--guests of Neptune for an evening on the occa- sion of the betrothal of Prince Charming and the beautiful mermaid Prin- cess. At entrance. the was the little fish Next the Prince water, with a change in the appointed time, Neptune and his whole court made a stately To begin the celebration, the mermaids performed, then all swam into the spot light and displayed their agility. and Princess themselves performed unbelievable feats in a coloured spot light playing over them. But then there the tempo, an ominous throbbing was heard, lBetty Hill at the piano? the rosy colours faded and a weird purple light enshrouded the whole place. A long, snaky form glided from the shadows and advanced towards the guests. This was the sea serpent, but it soon went away and the mermaids again tried to outdo each other in their aquatic prowess. The court clowns could contain themselves no longer, and at this point they accidentally? fell in, and with some difficulty pulled each other out after fireflies formation. a sigh we rescuing their bowler hats.

The different houses entered into it hear- tily and each one presented a skit. Upper McLachlin interpreted WFerdinand the Bullu, nThe Old Mill Streamn was given by Ryerson East, WSnow Whiten by Ryerson West, WCanada's Quintupletsw by Warner East, and-WThe Courtship of Stiles Mandishn by Warner West. Reubena Rabbezana, Mary and Nancy Newton carried off the prizes for the best dressed, and Betty Hill, as a fat lady received the prize for the funniest costume. Between these amusing presenta- tions everyone enjoyed skating around the rink, or warming her toes beside the blazing bonfire. Afterwards lunch and dancing were enjoyed in the gymnasium. Holly Hop One of the greatest social events of the year at Alma was the enjoyable, informal dance which was held the night before the Christmas vacation. The guests were graciously received by Miss Sparling and Francis Reiner in the drawing room. Here the students were gath- ered in little groups waiting expectantly for their escorts. Upon their arrival they proceeded to the gymnasium which was decorat- ively attired in full accordance with the Christmas Spirit. The gay dance music which was rendered by Benny Palmer and his orchestra, stopped for a brief intermission during which an appetizing lunch was served in the dining room. After refresh- ments, everyone returned to the gymnasium where the dancing con- tinued. When the strains of WGod Save the King had died away, the guests expressed their enjoyment as they departed and left the students with many pleasant memories. t 55 + 557 i ljfg' 06:1 Sp art S 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. Basketball Western-Erescfa-Waterloo 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. Baseball 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. 38 Badminton nGame Birdl'--and the suspense becomes intense-only one more point to win this exciting badminton game! Badminton was a sport this winter and the Dip's supply of birds was We have a grand court here and it provides pleasure and advanced players. we have had many tournaments and friendly contests with girls from other schools. very popular soon exhausted. for both beginners among ourselves, Here girls be- come badminton enthusiasts and let us hope this will never die. Alma-Western Meet Hurrah! We were victorious! We had a wonderful day at Western at the annual meet among Western girls, Brescia Hall, Waterloo College and Alma. The teams and some loyal supporters journeyed to Western's lovely campus in big buses. We entered into exciting ball and volleyball and there was keen competition in tennis, and archery. Afterwards NPink tea was served by the Western girls. It was enjoyed and appreciated returned home, the victors in a grand day of sports. Life-Saving The girls as a whole took a very keen interest in games of base- track and field, in the classroom' by everyone. We life-saving. Under the very able leadership of Miss Gregory, eleven girls passed their bronze, two their silver, and three their instructors'. Con- gratulations to all the new life-savers! 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 makes one feel sorry for those who aren't year-round sport enthusi- aStS. 39 Tennis In nice weather Alma's four tennis courts are constantly filled. One doesn't have to be a good player in order to play tennis, for here every one plays. Each fall and spring there are tournaments for beginners and advanced players. This arrangement gives each girl a chance. Every girl has a try at this game, for at Alma College--tennis is everyone's sport. Inter-House Basketball As there were six houses this year, almost everyone had a chance to play on her house basketball team. Enthusiasm ran high among the players, and great skill was displayed. Congratulations to Warner West who were the winners, and better luck next time to the other houses. Riding 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. O Swimming 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- ance of and the Cooper, One In this Miss Gregory. The Inter-House Swimming Meet took place Jan. 20 winner was Upper McLachlln. The individual winners were Elinor Gwyneth Thompson, Elizabeth Reid and Billie Gough. of the most interesting events of the year was the Water Pageant the girls showed the fancy dives, tricky stunts, and style swimming that they had learned. And so another successful year of swimming is drawing to a close. 40 Student Council F' Reiner unreal' M' Routley QSGCJ ' Track and Field Winners G. Barber C2116 PTSS-3 R. Banninga 12nd Sec.J, lll D.
