We played two matches with the Ladies ' College, both of which they won. We also played a match with the Mistresses, which we won after a very close game. We put our victory down to the fact that the Mistresses had had very little practice, and we feel that in the next match we may not have quite the same good luck. 1st Team 2nd Team Guard J. MacBrien (Capt.) J. White. Guard S. Smellie. M. Borden. Centre V. Gilmour. L. Irvin. Forward B. Carter. M. F. Dunlop. Forward B. Fauquier. J. Wilson (Capt.). Mistresses Team Guard Miss Neal, Guard Melle Gross. Centre Miss King. Forward Miss Soame. Forward Miss Indge. We are grateful to Miss Neal and Miss Indge for so help- fully coaching the teams. We want, too, to thank Luella Irvin for her good v ork as substitute on the first team. We have had a very enjoyable season and in the Spring expect to play more games with the Mistresses, the Ladies ' College and other teams. TWO WAYS OF LOOKING AT A THING The American gazed about him in astonishment. There, standing before him, was an old, white-haired man, dressed in the loose, flowing robe of the Ancient Greeks. " What! who are you? " gasped the amazed American. ' I am Aeneas, a philosopher of Athenian birth, " was the dignified response. ' What country and what year is this? It all seems very strange. " The American smiled. " This, " he said proudly, " is the United States of America, and the date is Friday, March 20th, 1925. But what do you think of New York? It is one of the largest and greatest cities in the world. I guess Athens didn ' t compare with this. " 5

lop, Mabel Dunlop, Vals Gilmour, Molly Houston, Julia Mac- Brien, Sylvia Smellie, Letty Wilson and Janet Wilson. All these acted in the first item, " Scenes from the Arabian Nights " , which was done in pantomime. The scenes were dramatic and the scenery picturesque. " Crinoline Days ' and " Early One Morning " were sung by Sylvia Smellie, Julia MacBrien and Vals Gilmour. The cos- tumes were dainty crinolines and the item was a very pretty one. " Columbine and Harlequin " came next, a dance in pantomime acted by Mabel Dunlop, Molly Houston and Janet Wilson. There followed a most effective " Butterfly Dance " by Vals Gilmour and Julia MacBrien, a song " Down by the Shimmering Lake " (composed by Mabel Dunlop) and a recitation by Letty Wilson. " The Minuet " which came next was one of the most popular numbers. It was a dance between Betty Fauquier, who looked most gallant in a court costume and powdered hair, and Betty Carter, with her sweeping skirts and low curtsies. One of the most attractive acts on the programme came next, entitled " An Egyptian Tomb " . In this the mummies of an ancient tomb come to life for one night in the year, and the mummied queen (Vals Gilmour) rises from her coffin to perform a weird and fascinating Egyptian dance. The scene was very cleverly carried out. The last event of the afternoon was the play " Mechanical Jane " , a screaming farce in which two very prim old ladies are in despair about getting a servant. They see an advertisement in the paper about a " Mechanical Jane " which will " do the work of three people in half the time of one " . They buy the Jane, and their adventures with it prove most diverting. Betty Fauquier took the exacting part of " Mechanical Jane " with great success, while Letty Wilson and Sylvia Smellie acted as Tabitha and Priscilla extremely well. THE AUTUMN BASKET-BALL SEASON This season we have had two principal teams, a first and a second. Our third team is fairly good, but both the third and the fourth need practice. 4

The Greek looked at him scornfully. " Athens, " he said quietly, " is the home of all great ideals, the home of art and poetry, and of all things of beauty. Why then do you say your city is greater? " The American smiled confidently. " Because we are far more civilized and advanced in every way. We have electricity, steam engines, aeroplanes, motor cars, wireless and many other things you didn ' t have. " " But what, " demanded the Athenian, " have you of beauty? Nothing! You have no ideas of art or beauty. What sculptor have you that can compare with Phidias, or statesman to com- pare with Pericles, or what buildings to compare with ours. You have none! and what is science compared with all these? ' " But, " gasped the now astounded American, " I never knew you had so many things unlike ours. I never . . . " " Then how do ye, who know so little and are so ignorant, dare to judge us and our civilization. Thanks be to the gods that I live not in your time! " and the philosopher suddenly vanished. The American rose to his feet. " Good Heavens! where did he go? " he murmured, and added regretfully. " If he had only waited a little longer I could easily have shewn him how much better our civilization is than his. " M. HOUSTON. THE HOLIDAYS I came to Ottawa on the fifteenth of May. One of the first things I noticed was that on all the buildings was the British flag instead of the Stars and Stripes. After I had been here eight days there came a holiday that was new to me, the Queen ' s birthday. A few days later there was a holiday in the States that is not celebrated here. May thirtieth, which is called Decoration or Memorial Day. The reason they call it Decoration Day is on that day they decorate 6
