MM wmI Mrs Judith E Caldwell StJ® 1657 River Road W PO Box 8 Prescott. ON K0E1T0 SAMARA JUNE, 1 949 " SUCCESS IS NfiUGHT; ENDEAVOUR ' S ALL " — Browning ELMWOOD FROM THE GROUNDS THIS MAGAZINE IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED TO MISS M. CHAPPELL SAMARA 3 EDITORIAL LOOKING back over the school year we find it hard to beheve that time has passed so quickly. This year has been one of contrast, bringing both ' joy and grief to the world. The birth of Prince Charles has almost over- shadowed the sorrows of today. As His Majesty said in his Christmas Day speech, " Before the baby was a week old he had become a friend of half the world. " Inside Elmwood there have been changes too. Returning to Elmwood this Septem- ber, it was a great shock to us all to find that Miss Chappell was no longer amongst us, but had gone back to her beloved Japan. We miss her very much, for not only was she our English mistress, but she was always ready to give help and advice. Thus it was to her that we sent part of our House Collections, to be distributed among needy children; and it is in appreciation of all the many things she did for us that we dedicate to her this " Samara. " We were pleased last term to welcome Miss Neal back again. For many years she taught in the school, and after eight years in her home, England, she has come back to us as Matron. We should like to say how much we appreciate the thought and care she gives to our welfare. Elmwood once again this year has a resident dramatic mistress, as we had some years ago. Miss Briggs came to us from England and under her capable direction this year ' s dramatic work has been conducted. Though our annual bazaar was not held this year, we have contributed to various charity organizations, including the Red Cross, the " Save the Children " Fund, the Community Chest; and some clothes of our House Collections were sent to the needy children of Northern Ontario. This year we have been fortunate in having many excellent speakers, includ- ing Mr. Alexandor who gave us a most interesting talk on the value of a Poppy; Canon Coleman, Canon Heeney, and Mrs. Murphy. We should like to take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with the magazine for the hard work and their valuable time, so readily given. We should like to mention specially Betsy Alexandor who has worked very hard in the advertising section. Many members of VI Upper and VI Matric will be leaving us at the end of this year; to them we wish the best of luck in the future, and we know that they will carry through life their school motto — ' ' ' ' Siimma Summaru?n " — High- est of the High. We know that the girls would like to join us in thanking Mrs. Buck, the staff, and " Dee " our Head Girl, for making this such a happy and successful year. SAMARA House motto: " Non nobis solum " LAST YEAR we wctc veiy pleased to win the House Shield again, and also the ' Inter-house Sports Cup. This year we were outshone by Fry and Keller in the House Collections, and our play came third out of the four plays presented. At Christmas we tied with Keller for second place in stars; weU we are still hoping. This year we welcome to the House Miss Neal, back from England, Mrs. Armour, and those girls who joined Nightingale this year. We also say goodbye and good luck to all who are leaving us.

At Christmas, renewing the Elmwood cus- tom of house plays, Keller produced " The Rehearsal " and " The Valiant, " and ith these we came second. In fact, Keller has managed to come second in all events, including the House Collections. In sports we got a second in both Junior and Senior Basketball, and our Badminton and Tennis teams put up a good fight to re- main second. Keller is proud to have two members, So- fia Setton and Lucinda Crozier, in the school basketball team, which returned victorious after playing Hatfield Hall. As Head of the House, I should like to take this opportunity to thank Keller for their co-operation throughout the school year and their readiness to live up to our House motto — " Fa V Play ' " .

Aiiss Chappell, one of our staunch members, and very dear to Fry, returned to Japan in the Fall, and we were hard pressed to fill the gap she and the graduating class left among us. We have, however, fared ad- mirably with the aid and support of the two new mistresses, Miss Smith and iMiss Jennifer Philbrick, and the many new girls A ' hom we welcomed into the house. The time-honoured custom of House Plays Competition was revived, after a year ' s lapse, in December, and with our presentation of the first act of Thorton VVilder ' s " Our Town, " we managed to edge out Nightingale and Keller for first place. In the House Collec- tions too, M ' c saw Fry win a coveted first place, due, needless to say, to hours of fever- ish knitting on the part of all. Success was ours also in the Sports Field. Under the very able guidance of Judy Mc- CuUoch, we managed to sweep the field of both Senior and Junior Badminton and Bas- ketball honours. These victories were ours as a result of many hours of practice after school, and house spirit. We also, in Septem- ber, won the inter-house tennis tournament. Fry can boast a memorable and happy year, and for myself as Head of the House, a very proud one. There has been the fullest co-op- eration and heart-felt house spirit behind Fry ' s activities. We are very sorry that Alannah Busk was absent for the photographs of the House Teams, and therefore her place is filled by a substitute.

Gates Tennis FRY HOUSE CANDID CAMERA SHOTS SAMARA 11 DRAMATICS TE House plays were presented in De- cember. Fry was the winner, with the first act of Thornton Wilder ' s " Our Town, " which was particularly well acted. Keller ' s first play, " The Valiant, " came sec- ond, with the Nightingale play " Guest House, Very Exclusive " third. Keller ' s second play " The Rehearsal " , which was very amusing, ranked fourth. On Thursday, December 17th., the Junior forms entertained an audience of parents and friends. Forms IVc, IVb, and IVa gave a Nativity play directed by Miss Briggs, while the Kindergarten, Transition and Form I act- ed " Blackbird Pie " and gave a performance with their rhythm band. On March 11th., the Ashbury-Elmwood play, directed by Mr. Belcher, was presented at the Little Theatre. This year Noel Cow- ard ' s bright and sophisticated comedy " Hay Fever " was the play chosen. It is not alto- gether an easy play for young actors since the whole action must run smoothly, with apparent casualness. In particular Judy Mc- CuUoch, with the role of Judith Bliss, the re- tired actress who is considering returning to the stage, and whose moods lead her from one pose to another, had no easy part to play. Yet she carried it off with distinction. Sallie McCarter as Sorel, the daughter, was equally successful. Sorel is a frank and unconvention- al young woman who sees the faults of her family — particularly her mother — and com- ments on them freely. Usually offhand in manner, she is more inhibited than the rest of this unusual family, and amazes their guests by suddenly indulging, with Judith, in an im- passioned rendering of one of that actresses favourite scenes. The scene of the intelligent party game that failed — one of the most suc- cessful in the play— depended very much on Sallie ' s acting. Jackie Nothnagel acted convincingly the part of the somewhat sophisticated woman for whom the young son has conceived a passion. Jackie ' s lines were always well timed, and particularly natural and spontaneous was her scene with Robin MacNeil, as the novelist father, and her breakfast-time scene with the visiting diplomat. Betsy Alexandor and Judy Nesbitt had smaller parts, but filled them very compe- tently. Betsy played the long-suffering maid, who is almost as free in showing her opinion of the guests as the family themselves, and Judy the part of the sweet and innocent girl who is invited only that David may study her for a character in his novel, and who soon 12 SAMARA finds herself lost and frightened in this out- spoken family. There is no doubt about the audience ' s en- joyment of the play. Very soon they were laughing freely at a witty line, or a dramatic pose from Judith. As we left the theatre, all the comments we could hear around us as friends compared notes, conveyed how much everyone had enjoyed the play, and how much they felt the cast deserved very high commendation. For the following account of " Pride and Prejudice " , the play of the Elmwood Senior Dramatics Class, we are indebted to the " Ot- tawa Citizen " : By Carl Weiselberger At Shakespeare ' s Globe Theatre the parts of women had to be played by young men and the female charm of Julia, Ophelia or Rosalind often enough depended on the more or less white and smooth cheeks of the young male actors who had to portray them. The Senior Dramatic Art Class of Elmwood School, who acted out Pride and Prejudice last night did the opposite: With only girls on hand, the elegant gentlemen Darcy, Bing- ley, Wickham, Rev. Collins from Jane Aus- ten ' s novel, were portrayed by young ladies who in picturesque, late i8th century frock- coats with embroidered sleeves and frills, looked convincingly masculine. " I should hardly like to live with her ladies and gentlemen in their elegant but confined homes, " said Charlotte Bronte of Jane Eyre ' s Demon Lover . . . The fundamental theme of Pride and Preju- ' dice, which has been turned by Helen Jerome into a charming, witty " sentimental comedy " ' is that old tradition by which hero and hero- ine must either marry wealth or at least in- herit it, and Mrs. Bennet shows her undis- guised anxiety to make " good matches " for her daughters. Charming Play Produced by Betty Briggs (Central School of Speech Training; London University Di- ploma in Dramatic Art), the charming play developed at a lively pace, and the large audience enjoyed fully the witty dialogue and fluent action. There was hardly a " dull " or dragging moment; the grouping of the characters on the stage was natural, and with their elegant, courteous, rounded gestures the charm of Rococo pictures was achieved. Beautifully designed, colorful period cos- tumes, the lovely stage-sets of the Bennet home and Lady De Bourgh ' s drawing room, added to the i8th century atmosphere of the gay-sentimental comedy. It would be unfair to single out individual players for particularly gifted performances. The emphasis was obviously placed on team- work and smooth co-ordination. Considering the youth of the players and the fact that some of them had to portray their opposite sex, surprisingly good characterizations were achieved. We liked the clear diction and in- telligent phrasing of the students, results of careful speech training, which is usually one of the weakest points with amateur produc- tions. As in previous years, the principal roles were again divided " in order to give as many girls as possible a part large enough to show the progress each has made in voice and ex- pression during the year. " Warm applause, and many chuckles and hearty laughs thanked producer and players for a splendid evening, which revealed talent and artistic taste far beyond the level of an average " school play. " In addition to this play by the Senior Dra- matics class, Forms VA, VB, and VC are putting on Shakespeare ' s " Merchant of Ven- ice " and IVA, IVB, and IVC are to give " Rip Van Winkle " by Herman Ould. Both these plays are to be presented after Easter. Also after Easter, the ballet class is to give a demonstration, which we look forward to with interest. ' SAMARA 13 VI Upper " Summa Summarum " ; with these words the magic carpet floated gently upwards into the air. It was a beautiful day and as we floated peacefully over the Atlantic, a tiny speck became visible on the horizon. At a closer range we discovered it to be a small yacht, and the strains of " A Life on the Ocean Wave " reached our ears. We then saw a figure dressed in patched blue jeans and a beige shirt striding across the tiny deck with mop over shoulder and pail in hand. Who should it be but " Dee " Collens. After a few cheerful greetings, we turned towards the English coast. It was the day of the Grand National and the horses were at the starting gate. In the spectators ' stand Ann Edwards was nervous- ly pacing up and down. Then they were off — it ' s a fight from the start. Now they are coming down the home stretch, neck and neck; it looks like a tie. Suddenly a horse shoots forward over the finish line. Who should it be but " Macduff, " Good work Ed; after twenty years of trying you finally made it. Now off to Paris. Suddenly beneath us we see a large crowd frantically buying books. Approaching we see a figure standing on a platform, obviously the author. To our sur- prise we find it is Barbara Gibson. Barb has just written " Better Cake Recipes " in five different languages! Congratulations, Barb! Turning back, we float to New York, where the neon signs are flashing the hit show of the year — ' ' ' ' The Merry -go-roimd " . The composer, director, leading lady, critic and audience is our own Lucinda Crozier. Later at Colombia University we find Dor- othy Gates H.P.S. (head Professor of Span- ish). It is said that the Spanish classes are the largest on record, and everyone (except the other blondes) receives top honours! It is quite late and so our carpet floats northward over Western University; we no- tice all lights are out except for a dwindling candle. Here, buried among books, we find Betty Gibbs trying to find an immediate re- mover of silver nitrate. Finally, passing over a small farm buried in a forest, we see Marjorie Cottingham hap- pily milking a cow. At least she has found the profession at which she is the happiest. So we leave a happy, if not prosperous group, and return home. VI Matric. VI Matric is one of Elmwood ' s largest forms this year. Our popular form mistress, Miss Dixon, though busy with other school duties, always finds time to pull us out of scrapes! At the Hallowe ' en party in October, we combined with VI Upper and put on a Minstrel Show. This was great fun, and en- joyed by all present. The characters of each of us are, I think, best summed up by the following quotations: Betsy Alexander — Every why hath a where- • fore. I Mary Code — We tire of those pleasures we take, but never of those we give. Andrea Hadley — Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we diet. Jackie Nothnagel — Good humour makes all things tolerable. 14 SAMARA Judy McCulIoch — Nothing succeeds like suc- cess. Sofia Setton — Man has his will — but woman has her way. Persis Brunet — Take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves. Shirley Smith — Laugh and the world laughs with you. Sallie McCarter — What is thine is mine, and all mine is thine. Chris Nothnagel — Much study is a weariness of the flesh. Judy Nesbitt — Make use of time, let not ad- vantage slip. Gail Baird — For there was never yet fair woman, but she made mouths in a glass. Alannah Busk — My heart is ever at your service. Sheila Hughes — Man is a social animal. Wendy Weston — Temperate in all things. Sascha Mavor — O call back yesterday, bid time return. Form V A Do not expect our form notes to be very exciting — 5A did not expect to be 5A, and we did not have time to prepare an exciting year for you to read about. Quite innocently we came to school in Sep- tember planning to be 5B, but Fate decreed otherwise; to our infinite surprise we were promoted to 5A. So if you notice us acting a bit oddly, and our exalted teachers find us a bit fuzzy, have pity on the Afflicted of Al- lah; the vortex of work has us quite dazed. We have managed to produce the odd bits of excitement, however. The first was the Form Play, ' ' Mortgage Manof a tragic drama about a little family faced with expul- sion from the old homestead. The roles were taken by Norma Baird as the Heroine, Wen- dy Quain as the Hero, Leslie Jackson as the ' illain, Diane Boyd — Aged Aunt, Judy Har- greaves— Detective, Mary Burns— Uncle. The lights were managed by Marion McKenzic, and the play written by Mary Burns. The next happening of interest was our Social Event of the Season — the form tea. It almost didn ' t take place because of a slight difficulty with the sandwiches— there weren ' t any — but we were saved by the gallant Les- lie Jackson who disappeared into the horizon at lunch time and came back in the afternoon with unlimited supplies. It must have been Magic . . . However, the Tea was a great success. The Guests of Honour were Miss Dixon, Miss Adams, Miss Smith, and Miss Neal, who poured tea. The latest excitement has been the discov- ery of a wonderful movie house in ' UU called de Bijou, which is our favourite ' angout. Per- haps you ' ave ' eard us talk aboud it — it ' s wan fine place, dat! ' Bye now see you dere sometime, eh? Form V B For a long time V B had the distinction of having only three members and we could boast of being the cosiest form in the school. Even though increased to four we are still pretty compact. We share some things with V A, but are not to be confused with them. We held a joint form tea early this year, and we share their passion for de Bijou. These are our members — Norma Baird, our form captain. She is indeed a social b(a)ird! Norma ' s happiest mom ent of the school day comes at lunch time — but that also goes for at least three-quarters of V B. She has found that not a gentle answer, but also a sweet and appealing face, turneth away wrath. Pat Knowlton is our vice-captain. She is good at sports, and is the Intermediate Bad- minton Champion. At the moment, Pat ' s greatest interest is in letter writing. Judy Maclaren is the skater of the form. She recently carried off honours by winning the Devonshire Cup. If you should happen to see a blue streak with a brown coat on racing for the streetcar, you ' ll know it ' s Judy head- ed for the Minto again. And if she should have a book under her arm it ' s because of Aliss Smith ' s campaign to try to make our Judy more literary. SAMARA 15 Diana Fraser is the wild one of the form — she comes from Iroquois! She is also the joker — the clown! But she is foremost to defend sturdily the rights and liberties of the form. Finally, Eioisa Madrazo is our latest addi- tion. She comes from Guatemala but is mak- nig remarkable progress in learning English. We also enjoy talking Spanish (?) to her. Form V C The nine-o ' clock bell rings, and those who have been fortunate enough to catch an early streetcar are lounging comfortably at their desks. As the second bell is heard, the class is completed by the appearance of Felicity Giles and Mary Frances Matthewman, our vice- captain in the first term. The first class begins. Margy Boehm, our form captain in the first term, is asked a ques- tion. Unfortunately Margy is hidden behind a pile of books and by the time she rises to the occasion, Janet Lawson has answered it. The day wouldn ' t be complete without some mention of Toronto by her two loyal sup- porters, Cathy Hees and Frannie Schulman. In composition class Gretchen Weston is a favourite with stories about those beloved summer holidays. At noon, we usually hear Rhon Curtis, our form captain, at the piano trying out a new tune. Last, but far from least, there is the ever-present problem of finding a nick-name for either Sheila Cabeldu or Shelagh Macoun, our vice-captain. It seems that whenever a mistress asks one of them a question the other immediately pops up with the answer. With the addition of these last two, V C is complete, and is under the careful guidance of Miss Philbrick, our form mistress. In closing, we should like to mention our very successful form tea which we had on February the eighteenth. Our guests were Miss Philbrick, who poured tea. Miss Smith, Miss Wiltshire, Mrs. Armour and Miss Dixon. Mrs. Buck, Miss Adams and Mademoiselle were unable to come. Form IV A A is for Allie who ' s starting this rhyme; E is for ' Liz ' beth who ' s never on time. is for Jenny, the brain of the form; ' s also for Jo, a horsewoman born. L is for Lynne, who is good at her drill; O is for Olga who comes from Brazil. 5 is for Sandra and Sylvia too — Sandra ' s vice-captain and Sylvia ' s new. T is for Tina, our little Dutch lass; This is IV A, and we ' re proud of our class. Upper IV B The mistresses popped their heads out of various doors as IV B trotted down the hall with Sarita Setton in the lead. Sarita is our present Form Captain, and very efficient. She came from South America two years ago and is devoted to the piano and music. Jane Colville and Shirley Thomas sailed past everyone in a happy discussion about their loved horses. They both are very sporty and extremely good riders. Joan Fagan and Wendy Gilchrist, both having tried preliminary skating tests, were excitedly relating their adventures. Joan, we gathered, had passed hers, and Wendy would try again in two weeks. Both are enthusiastic about skating and take lessons at the Minto Skating Club. Lambie Steven and Virginia Shurly strolled into the classroom talking about hockey and football, in which Lambie delights. As they sat down, Virginia announced she could do a back dive and so their talk changed to Vir- ginia ' s favourite subject, swimming. Patricia Heeney ( " Tish " ), Sylvia Ricci and Sheila McCormick brought up the rear, chat- ting about Tish ' s violin. She had it with her, and we gathered around to see. Tish loves music, and Sylvia from Guatemala, and Sheila, love dancing to it. The bell sounded and our normally talka- tive form settled down to work as the door closed on the mistress ' s " Good morning, girls. " 16 SAMARA Lower IV B and IV C Lower IV B and IV C share a classroom and take some lessons together. There are eleven of us. Judy Kellock, " Maggie " Gill and Susi Brain usually manage to come out at the top of the form. " Cally " Grant, Jenni- fer Hooper and Betsy Jane Davis have the same interest — horses. Jennifer is sometimes a boarder and sometimes not. Shirley Ann Mc- Kay is another horsewoman. She is also our form chatterbox! Andrea is good at gym, and Karla Krug is a star of the ballet class. Along with Upper IV B and IV A, this Christmas we presented a Nativity Play, di- rected by Miss Briggs. The play was success- ful. After Easter we are going t o give a play of " Rip Van Winkle " with the same forms. We had a form tea before Christmas. We invited quite a few mistresses, but unfortu- nately some could not come. There was hard- ly any food left over; although we had a good deal of ice cream, there wasn ' t a drop left! We had lots of fun, amid the spilling of ginger ale. We hope to have another tea as soon as possible. Old Qink ' Moiei.

SAMARA 17 GENERAL NEWS At the May Court Ball, held on January 28th, at the Chateau Laurier, several of the Old Girls distinguished themselves in the sparkling Revue that was produced for the occasion. We hke to think that you could pick them out in the crowd because they were Elmwood Old Girls, but just for safety ' s sake we will list them for you. Ann Southam (Creighton) was a featured performer and sang with great skill into a microphone for the first time in her life, and is willing to admit that had it not been for her early training in Assembly at Elmwood, she could never have done it! She had one lone supporter in the mixed chorus— Ethel Toller (Southam)— but two Old Girls are all you need for a sure-fire hit. In the professional chorus line that appeared next on the pro- gramme, Penelope Sherwood, Patsy Drake and Diana Gill were the shining lights. Then came the dreamy Waltz number, and as dreaming was never encouraged in the good old days, we only had one representative in the person of Paula Peters— just to make sure the number wouldn ' t fall apart. The show wound up with a lively old-time Square Dance, and Jean Castonguay, Claudia Blackburn and Kitty Griffin gave the number the sparkle it might have lacked. The Revue was under the con- venorship of Ethel Toller, and in our opinion, was the great success it was for the obvious reason that the back-bone of it was — ELM- WOOD OLD GIRLS. Other Old Girls who are actively working with the May Court throughout the year are, Luella (Irvin) Bethune, Ahson (Cochrane) Connolly, Mary (Gray) Ducq, Barbara (Hop- kirk) Dunne, Susan Edwards, Ruth (Monk) Finnie, Eleonor (Carson) Grant, Lillian (Gard- ner) Hyndman, Pamela (Erwin) Kingstone, Genevieve (Bronson) Laidlaw, Lynette Mac- Brien, Christine (MacNaughton) Macdougall, Elaine McFarlane, June White, Anna Wilson, Jane Viets. Associate Members (those with over ten years of active membership) are: Jocelyn (White) Blair, Gwendoline (Borden) Blair, Cynthia (Hill) Campbell, Marion (Gale) Charleson, Nancy (Teller) Cleary, Betty (Toller) Davis, Ethel Finnie, Jean Finnie, Rachel (White) Garvock, Betty (Fauquier) Gill, Vera, (Birkett) Gill, Janet (Southam) MacTavish, Nancy (MacCarthy) Minnes, Julia (MacBrien) Murphy, Audrey (Gilmour) Scott, Cairine Wilson, and Catherine (Guthrie) Woods. Professional Members are: Jean Burns, Betty Carter, Marion Monk, Barbara (Ross) Davies, Cynthia Sims and Cecily Sparks. Out-of-Town Members are: Joan (Elkins) Bo very, Catherine (MacPhail) Bruer, Helen Burns, Mary (Craig) Desbarets, Louise (Court- ney) Dillingham, Hyacinth Lambart, Patricia Macoun, Ruth (Hughson) Strickland, Frances (Bates) Stronach, Peggy (Marr) Webber. From the above you can readily see that Elmwood Old Girls are very actively engaged in social service work in this community, as they are in every other city in which they live. Ashbury -Elmwood Reunion An Ashbury-Elmwood Reunion was held in London, England, on September 4th, arranged by Pat Archdale and Dim Sabhn. It proved a great success. Among those present were Margot Peters, Mary Blackburn, Jill Barben, Margaret Hardy. Everyone enjoyed this hap- pily-planned get-together. Old Girls ' Match The Old Girls basketball match against the present girls resulted in a win for the present girls, with a score of 18-10. A hilarious diver- sion was caused by the arrival of Janet (South- am) MacTavish and Luella (Irvin) Bethune complete in school uniform— and umbrella. Complete in uniform, we say, but hardly such uniform as would meet with approval at morn- ing inspection! 18 SAMARA THIS year the Cadets are celebr ating their sixth birthday at Elmwood. We got off to a good start in September with our new superintendent, Airs. Hulse, who rapidly became very popular with us. Mrs. Hulse, Aliss Dixon, and A4iss Philbrick have all shown a great deal of energy and interest, and have made this year a very pleasant one for the cadets. Our division has dwindled from 51 mem- bers to 27, but we have had many new mem- bers, both among new girls and among those who have reached the honourable age of eleven, when they may join the St. John Am- bulance Brigade. Our courses have been covered very quick- ly this year. The new cadets took their First Aid examination before Christmas and are now on the Home Nursing Course. Those who had completed both these courses in pre- vious years are now taking toy-making classes. This year there was a dominion-wide doll- dressing competition. All dolls we re to be dressed in St. John Ambulance uniforms, and our division was to dress our doll as the Lady Superintendent in Chief. We are proud to say that our doll came first in its class, and second in the competition throughout Canada. In February, Mrs. Hulse very kindly in- vited all the cadets to a supper party at her apartment. Besides our own officers, Mrs. Buck and Mrs. Maclaren were there for the first part of the evening. After a delicious supper we played games and listened to some of our pianists giving an impromptu concert. We all enjoyed it very much, but we hope Mrs. Hulse ' s apartment recovered from our invasion. There was an examination in March, in which eight more cadets became officers. There are several new cadets among those chosen, and we know that they will be proud and worthy of their chevrons. Une Excursion MA soeur et moi, nous avions le desir de connaitre la ville de Gruyere et sur- tout de savoir comment on fait ce bon fromage. Nous sommes parties un jour en voiture avec nos parents et en chemin nous avons admire la campagne environnante. Le trajet n ' est pas long, et nous y sommes arrivees au debut de I ' apres-midi. D ' abord nous sommes allees visiter le chateau qui est tres ancien. Nous avons vu de tres belles peintures que Corot a faites sur les murs d ' une des chambres. Par les peintures de la salle a manger nous avons appris les details de la vie du Comte de Gruyere. Autour du chateau il y a un jardin a la frangaise. Puis nous avons visite le village qui est perche sur une coUine. Ce petit village est connu pour ses vieilles maisons a fa9ades blanches, ses volets peints aux couleurs du canton de Fri- bourg, sa fontaine dans laquelle les vaches viennent boire, dont des milliers de gravures et cartes postales ont rendu la physionomie, la pipe et le costume familiers aux touristes du monde entier. Et Ton voit que c ' est un tres vieux village, car les rues sont usees par les passants. De chaque cote de la rue principale il y a des boutiques ou s ' etalent de nombreux souvenirs qui representent I ' excursion du vil- lage de Gruyere. Ensuite nous avons essaye de visiter les fa- briques de fromage, mais malheureusement elles ne sont ouvertes aux visiteurs que le ma- tin. Alors pour nous consoler de cette decep- tion, nous avons pris le the dans un charmant petit salon. L ' interieur figurait un chalet et sur les boiseries etaient reproduites les peint- ures des costumes des differents cantons. Puis comme I ' heure avangait nous avons repris le chemin du retour en nous promet- tant bien de revenir, mais le matin la pro- chaine fois. Sascha Mavor, Form VI Matric. Keller Deirdre Collens: ' ' Things are bound to happen — why worry? Everything comes to those who wait — why hurry? ' ' ' ' While Elmwoodians all diligently pressed noses to the grind-stone for another year . . . our head girl, Dee, cavorted gaily on the Atlantic, " out of Africa bound for Elmwood " . She arrived in November and took the reins of command into her capable hands, much, we feel, to Mrs. Buck ' s relief and to the welfare of those on the " Lower Deck " — namely the boarders. In her spare moments (which we may add are very few) Dee can be found making out the boarders ' pocket money lists, more frequently attempting to subdue the more boisterous members of the sitting room, or rehearsing her part as Darcy in the senior play " Pride and Prejudice " greet- ing you with a gracious bow and a " Good Manning " . If you ask Dee what her plans are for next year she just shrugs her shoulders and flashes her broad smile, for we understand that Dee ' s plans are very unsettled. Whether it be a return trip to Africa or one to Trinidad — whose virtues are ex- tolled to us in abundance — she expresses her desire to do a lot of sailing which she feels she has missed out on the last few years. Her love of the sea and interest in nautical affairs have increased greatly this year, much to our surprise. Joking aside Dee, bouquets for a wonderful job and a very happy year and the best of luck in whatever you do! Ann Edwards: " A niaji convinced against his will Is of the same opinion still ' ' ' Footsteps are heard, the door opens, a quick switch to C.K.C.O. and " Ed " has arrived in her usual manner. Ann is our only day girl member of the sitting-room and has a knack for whipping up provisions for Prefects ' Tea which we secretly suspect is really her mother ' s doing. As the ener- getic and efficient head of Fry she has brought to her house top honours. On the week-ends " Ed " may be found jogging along the Aylmer Road on MacDuff (her horse) and during the week talking about his good points (which needless to say are many). Breaking the family tradition of going to McGill, next year will find her walking through the halls of Carleton with that Pepsodent smile that for so long has been familiar around Elmwood. We wish you all the best of luck " Ed " in the future. •jail MlHii ' n ' iii; iiiiii» ' " 55!!M«l iuiiitir !!!! " ! •itrSSr laiaiii ilMI BSi HI III SSI- -■:»«! :ss: ' .

If you want to be on time and make breakfast ask Sash to wake you; then you surely won ' t be late! Her weaknesses are yellow tulips (no one could ever guess why) and anything from the Pays-Bas. Sascha ' s ability to speak French and not write it is a mystery to all the French students especially when their homework is wrong. As to her future — that ' s very undecided.

Lucinda Crozier: ' ' Let a smile be your umbrella. " This is Cin ' s second year at Elmwood and already she is in the exalted rank of a House Senior. Cin ' s weakness is being nice to people and her pet hates are Algebra and liver. Every morning Cin can be seen inspecting the Juniors. She tries to admonish them for untidy tunics and dirty shoes, but a second glance you can see her grinning from ear to ear, and the Juniors know she isn ' t really cross with them. No wonder she is such a popular officer. Cinda can be heard holding forth at great length about the virtues of Port Arthur. She maintains that it is the best place in the world, and defies anyone to say otherwise. Last summer Cin taught Nature Study at " Jack and Jill " , a camp for children. We don ' t know what Cin ' s plans are for this summer, or next year, but we know that there will be a vacant place without her cheerful smile and her favourite expression " Oh, really, you people!

One would think that House duties would fill Mary ' s day quite ably, but she always finds time to lend a willing hand and a cheerful smile in any task. The first period in the afternoon will always find Mary rushing from form room to form room with the attendance book. Prominent in Mary ' s outside interests is the Junior Theatre, where she spends her Saturdays. Her summers are spent as " director of tlie water-front " at Camp Pontiac, a job to which she is well suited to judge from the various swimming awards she holds. Mary ' s dislikes are Friday and fish, and her likes include carnations and truffles, which we hope she will keep bringing to officers ' teas! Mary is destined to uphold the officers ' numbers again next year. Her steadiness and efficiency will be welcomed wherever she goes, and we wish her the very best of luck for the future. §■■■■■■ ' ■■i!!!S!! ■■■■■■■I ■■ ' •■■■■■■I ■■ ■■■■■■■I ■■ ■■■■■■■• ' ■a ■■■■■■I — •■■■■a iaaaaar laaiiai •■aia IS " !!!■• Judy Nesbitt: ' ' Skilled she is in sports and pastimes.

She is now the very busy sports captain of Nightingale and Mary ' s right-hand man in all House matters. We know com- paratively little of Judy ' s outside activities but until this year the 3.30 bell would see Judy tearing madly out of the door on her way to the Minto. She has won a great many awards, including the Devonshire, Wilson and Gilmour cups. Judy intends to go to college, but we hope to have her with us for another year. Best of luck always, Judy! Judy McCuUoch: " No excellent soul is exempt from a fnixtiire of ?nadness. " Judy, who holds the remarkable record of eight years at Elmwood, will be leaving us this year. She is an efficient person, and may be found busily checking borrowings from the library — she is librarian — or engaged in some duty that concerns her as Sports Captain, for games are Judy ' s specialty, and she has carried off nearly every sports award possible. Judy ' s weakness is Woolworth ' s candy counter, where she spends most of her out Saturdays. Don ' t be alarmed if you see Judy " floating " down the corridor; it ' s not Judy at all, but Judith Bliss, the famous actress. Everyone was impressed by Judy ' s performance in " Hay Fever " , the Ashbury-Elmwood play this year. Judy ' s immediate future is still uncertain; but next year will find her either in Australia, or at Bryn Mawr, or perhaps Radcliffe. Wherever Judy goes, we know she will get along well — for " nothing succeeds like success. " MONITORS, 1948-49 Sheila Hughes Marjorie Cottingham Sallie McCarter Betty Gibbs Betsy Alexander Sofia Setton Dorothy Gates Barbara Gibson Jacqueline Nothnagel CANDID CAMERA SHOTS SAMARA 23 AGAIN this year we are lucky to have Miss Philbrick for our games mistress. Our big sports event has been our basket- ball match with Hatfield Hall. It was doubt- ful if we were going to be able to go because of lack of transportation, but Mrs. Southam, Mrs. Curtis and Mrs. Buck very generously lent their cars, and we started out at 8.00 a.m. for Kingston, where the match was played. The Elmwood team emerged victorious from an extremely hard game, the score being 14-4. We arrived home at 6.00 p.m., after having had lunch at the La Salle Hotel with the Hat- field team. A4iss Philbrick gave up much of her free time to coach us, and we should like to thank her for her enthusiasm and interest. Sports Day Last year, 1948, Sports Day was held on June 7th. It was a successful day for Nightin- gale, who romped off with the prizes. The weather man was in a good humour and we had neither rain nor mosquitoes, so often un- invited guests at the ceremony. Nightingale won the Inter-house Sports Day Cup. The other winners were: Inter-house Relay — Nightingale Senior Sports Cup — Elizabeth Paterson Intermediate Sports Cup — Mavis Hothersall Junior Sports Cup — Shirley Thomas Preparatory Sports Cup — Lee McKay Basketball Our inter-house basketball matches took place as usual, and this year we have some very promising players among both the inter- mediates and new girls. Fry was the lucky winner of both Senior and Intermediate matches. We had an innovation this year — a game between the day-girls and boarders. The day-girls put up a very good fight but the boarders won by a fair margin. After Easter we hope for a match with the Old Girls. Ski-ing and Skating The boarders have enjoyed many good Saturday ski-ing trips both at Wakefield and Mountain Lodge. The weather has been very temperamental this winter, and although our ski-ing has been successful (except for a few bruises), the skating rink has been either very well insulated with snow or else swamped by the numerous thaws. Tennis This is the first time in three years that we have been able to have the tennis matches. The weather, however, proved excellent in September and October, and much interest was shown in tennis, apart from the matches. Fry was fortunate in winning the Senior games, but Keller won the Intermediate matches. 24 SAMARA Badminton Our badminton tournaments were com- pleted early this year, being finished before March. If you pass through the hall during the winter months, you are sure to see sev- eral couples batting a poor bedraggled bird back and forth. The winner this year was Fry, who won both the Senior and Intermedi- ate tournaments, although by the very nar- row margin of one point over Keller in the latter. Gym and Drill Another successful and enjoyable year un- der Miss Philbrick has almost come to a close. We have used the apparatus for all our vari- ous exercises, and have learned to vault over the horse in all kinds of queer positions, do- ing wolf, front, thief, twist, box and water- fall vaults! How Holland Was Saved By Water ONE morning when the early June sun was rising and the first birds were sing- ing, Peter got up because he heard a ' plane flying very low. He looked out of the window and saw that the ' plane was British. It was flying so low that it nearly touched one of the sails of the old mill. Luckily the Germans were out of ammunition, for other- wise they would have shot the ' plane down. When Peter had finished his breakfast he went outside. On the road he saw a slip of paper, which he picked up, and read: " I am very sorry to let this be done to this beautiful island, but we have to bomb the dyke in order to liber- ate the rest of the country. Signed, Queen Wilhelmina. " (She still was queen then.) Pe- ter was shocked to hear that awful news. He looked around the landscape, the trees and everything he loved so dearly. Why did this have to happen? Peter thought " I should not be looking around. I should go and help my mother move the bedclothing and the food, to the attic. " He told his mother the terrible news. Pe- ter ' s mother was a brave woman and she did not cry but she thought, " We will build the Island again as long as we Dutchmen may live. " She picked the few potatoes from the garden and all the food she had and brought it up to the attic as well as a lot of extra bed clothing for the people who lived on lower ground, and might be flooded earlier than they. They hid the food in case the Germans might want it, along with all the valuable things they possessed. Peter ' s father had dis- appeared because the Germans wanted young men to labour for them; but all of the young men refused and kept hiding, or tried to help their country in espionage. The next morning they already heard the zooming of ' planes and the falling of bombs. Most of them fell on the dyke, but unfortu- nately some fell on the little village of West Capelle by accident. Peter and his mother looked for the last time over the Island and tears came into their eyes. But what did they see in the distance? Wasn ' t that the glittering of water far away? that horrible sea water? Yes, the water was coming, first slowly but then quicker and quicker, and it already had flooded the kit- chen floor when the people came from West Capelle. Peter ' s mother took care of many people, amongst them a little boy who screamed at the sound of a ' plane or bomb, because when a bomb fell on their house his mother and his sister had been killed, and the little boy did not know how he was saved. On the water everything was floating — pigs, cows, rabbits, mice — all looked disgust- ing. But what did the people see one morning? Weren ' t they the ships with the Allies? All the people put out their flags and Holland was liberated. It was lovely to see our own flag flying in the breeze above the water. And already now a few shrubs are growing on the Island. Tina van Roijen, IVA Fry 25 WITH many a backward glance at the summer days gone by, the boarders returned to Elmwood one fine eve- ning last September. We found many new faces among the old, for we welcomed four new resident staff, and seven new boarders to our happy throng. Later on in the year, our numbers were supplemented by Eloisa Ma- drazo and Sylvia Ricci, both from Guatemala. Our Spanish has improved greatly! As we weren ' t quite sure of the where- abouts of our Dee, who was to be Head Boarder again this year, Sascha Mavor took her place at the beginning of the year. Sascha did a wonderful job of organising the board- ing school, and we should like here to thank Dee, Sascha, and Miss Wiltshire — who has been very generous and understanding as House Mistress — for all they have done to make this year such a happy one. At the beginning of the year, the Seniors decided that our weekends should include more group activities. As a result of this, every Friday night is spent at our " sewing circle " , under the kind supervision of Miss Aldous, or our leathercraft classes, conducted by Miss Wiltshire. We have also had several movies on Friday nights. The skiing trips to Wakefield have been en- joyed greatly by both staff and girls. We have had several good skiing Saturdays, and, fortunately, suffered no broken bones. We have had a successful year as well as a happy one. Our boarders ' basketball team de- feated the day girls, and the school basketball team included five boarders. This Christmas we had a boarders ' party in the senior classroom. Everyone attending had a wonderful time — including Santa Claus. We sang all the old Christmas songs, and the party came to a close with the seniors ' reci- tation of " The Visit of St. Nicholas " . We, who are leaving, express our thanks to everyone for making this such a happy year. W e have had fun — who will forget the " body in the bath " on April 1st.? Our last year at Elmwood is not one to be easily forgotten. 26 SAMARA THE Fiction Library has almost doubled its membership this year, and the staff is kept busy collecting overdue fees and reminding people about returning books on time. Several new books have been bought, including " China Town Family " by Lin Yutang; " A Play on Words and Other Radio Plays " by Lister Sinclair; " The Robe " and " The Big Fisher- man " by Lloyd Douglas; " How Green Was My Valley " by Richard Llewelyn; " The Captive Princess " by Margaret Irwin; " Three Time Plays " by J. B. Priestley; " Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town " by Stephen Lea- cock; " Babbitt " by Sinclair Lewis; " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay " by C. Otis Skinner; " The Gathering Storm " by Winston Churchill, and others. In addition to these, Andrea Hadley very generously donated a number of books, both novels and non-fic- tion, which have been very popular. The library has increased to such an extent that a new cupboard has been required. It is interesting to note that there are more Juniors and Intermediates in the library mem- bership this year than has been the case for several years; and they are making good use of the books. This year the most Junior books have been put separately in a Junior Library used by Forms II, III, IVC and Lower IVB. This Lib- rary is open on Wednesday lunch time, and has been most successful. Several new books have been bought for it. WE BEGAN this year with a dash of char- coal and a liberal impression of the elms around the school. Mr. Mas- son ' s deft hand gave depth and a new interest to our old models, the elms. He has, however, struggled in vain to inspire in us a desire to paint a wet street. Our efforts so far, in that line, have produced only mud. With the thought of being made immortal on canvas, many of the Juniors have walked bravely into the Art room to serve as models for us, some- times to find themselves grotesquely repro- duced on paper; but we do offer many thanks to these wonderful little models, who have helped us so much. On one occasion Mr. Masson himself posed for us, with even more varied results! We should like to thank Mr. Henri Alasson for all the help and encour- agement he has given us, and the interesting Art periods we have with him. KARLA KRUG by Sandra McKee by Judy AlcCulloch PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION Margaret Gill SAMARA 31 " For the Good of the Cause " DURING the close of the Civil War be- tween the Puritans and the Cavaliers, a wealthy Cavalier family lived in the beautiful county of Devonshire on the out- skirts of the small village of Alverdiscott. The family consisted of two children, Ru- pert, the eldest, a handsome boy of seventeen, who was an excellent horseman, and his sis- ter Rose, a courageous and beautiful girl of fifteen. Their father was a brave soldier and had become one of the leading generals of the Cavalier forces, while their mother super- vised the huge estate and their numerous wo- men servants, with a calm efficiency, in her husband ' s absence. The house was an old rambling one with hidden stairs and secret panels whose existence was only known by the family itself. Rupert had been very useful to his father by delivering important dispatches through the enemy lines to other branches of the Cavalier forces. It was extremely dangerous work and his mother and sister were in con- stant fear of his being captured. One windy night as Rose was retiring to her lonely room in one wing of the house, she heard a gentle tapping at the casement. Supposing that it " was the wind rattling the thick ivy outside, she got into bed and tried to sleep. But then the tapping became more urgent and at last she went to the window and opened it. What did she then see, but her brother ' s pale, anx- ious face peering at her, half hidden by the ivy ' s exuberant growth? " Quick, Rose, " he said. " Conceal the light. I am being pursued by a company of Round- heads and must seek shelter. " " But why did you come here? " she asked. " To gather some clothes and money for father ' s friend who must flee to France on the morrow, " he answered. Just then they heard the noisy clatter of horses ' hooves in the courtyard below and suddenly the mas- sive entrance door was loudly pounded. " Hurry, Rupert — the secret chamber, " she said. Together they searched in the dark woodwork which would reveal the chamber to them. At last the black space loomed be- fore them and the boy hurriedly entered while she drew closed the aperture until with a sharp click it was a blank wall again. While this had been taking place, angry voices downstairs had been heard shouting at the bewildered servants, and then as Rose went down the broad staircase she heard the calm voice of her mother answering firmly the ringing questions of the Roundhead lead- er. Rose entered the hall where at least twenty soldiers were gathered, and her heart sank as their cruel, hard faces were turned on her. Her mother said to her: " These men have told me that they are pursuing your brother, but I have repeatedly told them that he is not here. " " Nevertheless madam, we must search the house, " the commander said brusquely. The soldiers looked in every room and in every nook, pressing panels in the hopes of discov- ering a secret hiding place. At last they ar- rived at the room which belonged to Rose, who held her breath when they began to push the dark rich woodwork . . . She near- ly fainted when at last to the Roundheads ' great satisfaction the hidden door flew open. They searched inside it and came out, not bearing a struggling Rupert, but empty hand- ed. Rose could not believe her eyes until there was a great commotion in the courtyard below and then the sound of a galloping horse. The soldiers peered out into the grow- ing dawn and saw a curly-headed lad wave his cap defiantly in the air at his enemies and speed off, having cut loose the cavalry horses which immediately ran into the forest. " You shall rue this very bitterly, " vowed the commander to the amazed women, as, scowling fiercely, he and his company troop- ed off in vain pursuit of their horses. When his sister had left him, Rupert had listened intently, for the angry deep voice 32 SAMARA of the commander was ordering his men to search everywhere in the house. Knowing full well that he would not have a chance of hiding himself under that rigorous search, he opened the panel from the inside and cau- tiously made his way down the hall to his own bedroom . . . There he gathered to- gether some money and clothes, keeping his ears trained on his pursuers ' footsteps. They were steadily approaching — what could he do? Suddenly he remembered that his fire- place was a large one, and that as a little boy he had found steps in it that led onto the roof. He realized that from there it would be a simple matter to reach the courtyard. He clambered up and up until he reached the roof. From there he scrambled down the ivy, until at last he was in the courtyard frightening the cavalry horses, and soon was on his way with the money and clothes which would win the security of the French court for a friend. So a brave Cavalier girl and boy outwitted their enemies. Their friend afterwards gained the French court safely and soon helped hi s noble rescuers to escape from the Puritan clutches. Grf.tchf.n Weston, Form VC, Nightmgale Time Is Fun It ' s hard for me to write a rhyme Because I have so little time. I rush around and work all day But often have some time to play. I gallop home from school to see A little horse called Dinah Lee; She ' s shiny black with long black tail; I jump on her back and away we sail.

Bktsy Jane Davis, Lower IVB Age 10 The Eruption of a Mountain It was a humid evening and towards the west was a vague eerie glow. The people in the small Mexican village were worried. As the hours dragged on, the glow became a blue red and the inhabitants of the village could distinguish low flames of fire shooting towards the sky. The heat was fierce and low rumblings could be heard. It seemed as though down in the heart of the earth the sea and lava were wrestling. The long dreary night continued. The rumblings grew louder and boiling lava shot high in the air and rained upon the deserted village. The sea which had been oily calm before had become a churning mass of waves. The people, sure they couldn ' t stay any longer, had left as quickly as possible after making certain they had everything they could take with them. Still the volcano roared. The thunder boomed again and again, and the village was covered with volcanic ash. Lava streamed down the fields, into the village and on over the flat lands. Again and again the boiling oils poured over the fields until they were wrecked be- yond repair. At last the flames died down and in their stead came sparks and a purplish glowing smoke. The long dreary night ended and a bright sun came up. The sea calmed itself at last and the little village was buried under the ashy ruins.

Age SAMARA 33 Grey Day IT was one of those miserable grey days when nothing has any interest, any Hfe, or any colour. This particular landscape was no exception — a washed out grey sky, an oily grey sea spraying chilly grey foam on wet grey sand. A solitary speck resolved itself in the dis- tance. It approached rapidly and turned into a man, a man not in a grey frame of mind to match the day, but a black one. He had been staying in a dull little village for his health — ordered there by his doctor — and after several weeks of grey stormy weather he had worked himself into such an irritable frame of mind that it would have been far better for him to remain in London. On this particular day, however, he had decided to flout the weather and take a walk along the bleak coast. Now he wished he hadn ' t. The grey sea- spray had soaked his clothes, the grey wet sand had soaked his shoes, and now a grey wet mist was fast putting his pipe out. He started to retrace his steps. It was about then he began to think of legends of the sea. The desolate sands and empty seas, the general air of bleakness and loneliness provided an excel- lent setting for a ghost ship to sail or a sea- spirit to wander. Thinking of sea-spirits . . . The man chew- ed his pipe thoughtfully. There had been strange talk in the little village lately. Strange talk and strange rumours — not that the man had paid them any attention, but . . .! There had been talk of voices heard, voices that seemed to come from the water under the fishermen ' s boats. That was sheer imagina- tion, said the man. It had been the wind. However, the next problem gave him — and the fisherfolk — more thought. He had found a strange object on the beach, and as it had been rather pretty he had taken it home and showed it to his friends among the villagers. To his intense surprise, he found they would not touch it, and begged him to throw it back to the sea. As far as he could see, there was no reason for this fear. It was a thin, finely- chiselled piece of stone, some six inches in length, and as sharp as a razor. The stone from which it was made, however, was ex- tremely unusual. It was opaque, and tinted with various shades of green and rose. It was as hard as iron and absolutely unbreakable. One end had been blunted, and had certain squiggles on it that might be said to be mystic markings. " It has come from the sea-people, " said the villagers. " Give it back to them. " Their insistance that he throw it back made the man only more determined to keep it. He was not the superstitious kind. Now, as he hurried alone through the grey mists he began to doubt himself, and as his mind ran over the details of the third and weirdest incident, he began to doubt himself more and more. Yesterday, a fisher boy had been sailing alone in his little grey dinghy. He had been staring idly into the sea (he said) when sud- denly, not more than a few feet below the surface, he had seen what looked like a hu- man body floating on its face. It had only been an indistinct shadow, so he could not be sure. However, he had got his boat hook and attempted to salvage the body, if it was one. He had given it a few prods with his hook in his attempts, when to his intense horror it gave a twist and disappeared down in the murky depths. It could not have been a man as it did not come up for air; it was not dead as the boy had seen it make definite move- ments. He had sworn again and again, even on the Bible, that it was not his imagination. Besides, he was not credited with enough wit to make up such a story. The man returned to himself. How terribly still it was! He stopped, and listened in the silence to the roar and rush of the grey waves, the occasional cry of the invisible gulls. He hurried on again. He came to the top of a rise in the rocky beach and stopped a moment. The land dip- ped sharply there, and with the mist, he was looking down into a pool of fog, through which three figures showed indistinctly. " Hey, " he shouted, and ran down to join them — when suddenly they were gone! He had seen them turn towards him, and then they had vanished into the fog. Irritated that the y should avoid him, and sure that they 34 SAMARA were hiding from him somewhere near, the man hid behind a rock to wait their return and question them about their strange be- havior. He had waited for about five minutes when something appeared on the rocky ledge before him. It was as silent and as indistinct in the fog as a fish is in murky water. But that is not what froze the man as he crouched; it was the fact that the ledge faced onto the sea, and the shape could only have come from there. It was joined by another shape, and yet an- other. They merged together and appeared to be holding a conference. Then they separ- ated, and stealthily began to collect pieces of stone and weed off the rocks. To the man ' s infinite horror one made its way towards him, for the first time he was able to see it clearly. It was human — unmistakably human — but its human characteristics only made it seem to be the more monstrous. It walked erect like a man, it had two arms and two legs; its head was round and it had slick oily black hair. Undeniably it had two eyes, but these eyes were large and lampent — glowing with a weird light like a deep-sea animal ' s; it had a nose but at the tip of the nose were gills, not nostrils! It was breathing through its mouth, and in the mouth the man could see sharp- pointed white teeth. Its skin was a pallid white-green color, and it was rather plump. Around its middle was wrapped a piece of red material. The most weird thing about it however, was its hands and feet. There were not more than three digits on each, and they were joined by a webbing of skin. For a long time it collected weed and rock, and then as if at a signal all three slid back into the sea. For a long time the man, half paralyzed with fright and astonishment, re- mained hidden. It was only when it began to rain in good earnest that he could get up enough courage to come from hiding, and when he did he ran all the way back to the village. The fisher folk found him very ami- able company that night. A week passed. The man mentioned noth- ing of his adventure to his friends. He began to l)e assailed with doubts of his own sanity. It was then that he had proof. At first he thought of no connection between the mer- men and this incident, but then . . . However, let me tell you what happened as it occurred. The incident was an act of theft, the most unusual that had ever happened to the little town, or almost any place in England. A house, not far from the sea, had been broken into and robbed. Everything had been re- moved from it, not just everything of value, but everything that was in the house. The forks, knives, plates, pictures, beds and all furniture had vanished as completely as if it had never been there. There was one clue, however. On the scene of the crime had been found an object similar in every respect to the one that the man had. The man told what he knew to the police, and expressed his belief that the mer-men had committed the crime. He was nearly put into a near-by asylum by the authorities, but the feeling of the town was high against it, and as the man appeared sane in every way ex- cept for this delusion, they decided that they would not. The crime remained unsolved. After that grand coup, no more was heard of the mer-men. It is the man ' s private theory, and he will tell it to you if you ask him, that these men from the sea were sea-scientists, and as men go down into the sea and collect specimens of what they find there, these mer- men had come up to the land, and carried off specimens of what they had found here. Mary Burns, VA Fry The Coming of Winter Summer was slowly fading away, Birds were leaving day by day. The trees were dropping all their leaves. And farmers were gathering up the sheaves. Then one night when all lay still, Asleep in their beds were Jimmie and Jill, And from the heavens thick and fast Snow was on its way at last. Someone was pulling a blanket of white Over the world on this dark night. It ' as Nature working in vain To fill the earth with beauty again. Jo-Anne Davis, Form IVA Nightingale SAMARA 35 Strange Acquaintance THE rain fell steadily, blotting out the city in the distance, making it almost impos- sible even to discern the swollen black river which raced angrily beneath the gigan- tic bridge on which I was standing. Suddenly a strange figure loomed out of the mist and fog, and leaned against the guard-rail close to my elbow. " Got a match, buddy? " he asked, in a flat, uninterested voice, staring all the while at the rushing body of water beneath us. I searched through my pockets and soon produced a light, which I handed to him. The flickering glare of the match as he struck it with his thumb nail illuminated his face for a brief moment. I barely had time to notice that he was about forty years of age, dark, and wore a brown felt hat which was pulled down low over his eyes. The turned-up coat collar of his shabby gray coat added to the depression, and almost mystery, that surrounded this chance acquaintance of mine. Then the match went out. We stood for several moments without speaking, and then he looked up at me. " I guess if a fellow fell from this bridge he ' d be killed right away, eh? " " I guess so, " I answered, without any more thought to the matter. " But I ' d certainly hate to be floating around in that river. It sure looks cold. " We both fell into deep silence, broken only by the roar of the water and the drip, drip of the large raindrops; they fell against my face and trickled off my nose. Finally I roused myself from my morbid study of the river and glanced at my com- panion, who seemed lost in thought. " Guess I ' ll be moving along now. " He did not stir, nor did he make any effort to answer by either word or gesture. I shrank deeper into my turned-up collar and moved away from the rail. " Well, goodbye, I ' ll . . . " Still no answer; I shrugged my shoulders in resignation and moved quickly through the fast-falling rain. After taking a few steps I turned and looked back. My silent compan- ion was still staring at the water. Next morning it was still raining. Large puddles had formed in the streets, and the gutters had been transferred overnight into miniature rivers. " Paper, mister? " " Thanks — keep the change. " I unfolded the paper slowly and glanced vaguely at the front page. Suddenly my eye was caught by a headline in black type. " Body of man found in river. Believed suicide. " Then it contin- ued : " The body of an unknown man was found in the Hudson river this morning at 4.10 A.M. He is believed to have been about forty years of age, dark, and wore a gray overcoat. A brown hat was found washed up on the river bank. " Turning quickly, I crumpled the newspa- per and threw it into the gutter, where it was borne by the rushing stream out of sight. Then I joined the surging throng that was making its way uptown, ready to begin a new day. Gail Baird, VI Matric Keller School Fever (with apologies to John Masefield) I must go back to school again, to the dusty class and hall, And all I ask is a notebook and a match to burn it all. And the pen ' s scratch, and mistress ' s frown, with head and hand all aching. And the grey pallor on the teacher ' s face as her heart is slowly breaking. I I must go back to school again, to the dull and dreary life; To the brain ' s day and the dunce ' s way and a voice Hke a whetted knife; And all I ask is a good joke from a laughing fellow-rover. And a good time in the holidays when the long term ' s over. Wendy Weston, Form VI Matric Fry 36 SAMARA They Fled By Night THREE fugitives stole out from the bar- racks throwing grotesque shadows up- on the compound. A bough creaked and the figures stopped for a minute, and started again in perfect unison. The moon shone fitfully, hiding herself at times behind a sombre cloud like a shy child. Suddenly, A ithout warning, a beam of blinding light threw the compound into relief. It swept in a wide arc and then went out, leaving the night as dark, as silent as before. Where were the figures? Somehow, miraculously, they had escaped the questing light. They approached the fence. One of them jumped on the earth, and as if dug and weak- ened previously, the ground gave way, and one by one the figures crouched down and wormed their way on their stomachs under the fence. They darted toward the forest and dived into its cold and lifeless embrace. They stumbled on in silence for several miles, seemingly acquainted with the sur- rounding terrain. Then a silhouette pitched forward and sank to the ground with a soft moan. The other two carried him along until they came to a sheltered spot near a road which twisted and turned, a snake weaving through the countryside. Here they laid him down and made him as comfortable as pos- sible. They waited. Hours passed. A streak of gray was beginning to rise over the horizon when a heavy truck came slowly down the road. One of the men slipped out from the wayside and motioned with his thumb. The truck stopped and a harsh voice cried out, " What ' s the matter? What do you want? " The driver was leaning out the window when a fist crashed into his face and he crumpled forward. The same man that had showed such vicious strength opened the door, letting the man drop to the ground, and motioned to the other. He came, dragging his comrade over his shoulder, and laid him gently in the rear part. Next they gagged and bound the driver, and took his credentials and clothes. Thev jumped in, stepped on the accelerator, and the truck lurched forward, speeding away into the night. They approached a small village just before dawn and although hungry and dirty, they roared through the town, and keeping away from the main roads they sped along until dusk. Then leaving the truck, they struck out through the fields toward the border. They had in advance picked out the most suitable place to cross the closely-guarded frontier and had decided on a lonely stretch of marsh and moor. Arriving on the moor they slowed down and cautiously crept on. They could see the fence stretching away across the vast- ness. With a rush they surged toward it and breathed, " Freedom! " " Cut. That was great! " And the director leaned back in his chair, puffing contentedly on his pipe. Judy McCulloch, Form VI Matric. Fry Kittens When little kittens are born they don ' t look like what you would think. They do not look like little cats, with lovely soft fur. The kitten ' s body looks as if it had no fur what- ever, and its tail hasn ' t any fur. It ' s fun playing with kittens when they are older. A kitten loves to play with a ball or a ball of wool. If you get a piece of string and put a little bit of paper on the end, and shake it, the kitten will play with it. Although kittens like to play with you they are not as friendly as dogs. When any- body comes in to see the kitten, it will run under or behind something, and won ' t come out. Kittens first drink milk from their mothers. When they get older they have to learn how to drink out of a saucer. Sometimes you have to put the kitten ' s nose into the milk before it will drink. A cat ' s tongue is rough and the milk sticks to it. Kittens are soft furry animals and people like them for pets. We had some and that is how I learned about kittens. Karla Krug, Form IVC. Age 10 SAMARA 37 Hares and Rabbits BEFORE I begin to tell you this story, I had better give you a bit of information about the two people in it. The first one is father. Father is the head of the family, and will not tolerate any nonsense. Furthermore he is not superstitious. The second person is mother. She is gifted with an excellent sense of humour, and an amazing ability to obtain from father whatever she wants. Mother, however, is very superstitious. Now to get back to the story. It was about eleven o ' clock and mother and father were lying in bed reading. Then father put his book down, turned out the light between their beds, and mumbled " Good-night. " Mother sighed, closed her book, and said in a cheerful tone " Good-night dear. " Then sud- denly she remembered that this was the last day in the month and said hurriedly, " Hares! " " Oh, rot! " exclaimed father. The silence in the room deepened, and mo- ther concentrated on getting to sleep before father began his habitual snoring. Later that night mother began to have a nightmare. She dreamt that the cupboard door (which is at the end of father ' s bed) was slightly ajar, and balanced on top was a large tray of dishes. It was up to her to pass that cupboard door without disturbing the dishes. She got out of bed, crept around the end of her bed, then around the end of father ' s bed, keeping her eye on the dishes all the time. Cautiously she began to grope her way up the side of father ' s bed. This, however, woke father and when he saw mother grasp- ing his bed and staring fixedly at the cup- board, he was dumbfounded. " Don ' t be silly! Get back into bed! " he called, when he had recovered the use of his voice. Mother came out of her dream immediate- ly, looked at the expression on father ' s face and realized what had happened. Then her eyes fell on the clock, which said ten past one. Ten past one — a new day! — a new month! Looking father in the face, she blurted out, " Rabbits! " Leaving father shocked, horrified and ut- terly speechless, she climbed triumphantly back into bed and giggled herself to sleep. Betty Gibbs, VI Upper Fry Coral Gables IT was a hot and humid day. The town of Coral Gables lay sleeping peacefully un- der the sun ' s wrath. The wide streets were hot and simmering. Little streams dried up, rivers became swamps, but the smooth shining sea made no movement. As for Coral Gables, it was a town that most people would like to live in. The streets were as broad as the plains about it. The town itself had white bleached buildings, and from the road bubbled tar. Suddenly a sound broke the siesta. " Clop! Clop! " it echoed through the streets. But gradually it died away, and was soon lost in the heat haze. Of course it was Joe Cloperry, the clerk, making his daily rounds. The Town Hall lifted its spires toward the sun. The theatre was filled because it was air-conditioned and cool. The corner store slept like the rest. Now and again somebody dropped in for a drink and a chat, but mostly it was silent. A long time later, the haze began to lift. People came out of the theatre, and the shop bell was kept busy. The street stopped bub- bling tar, the streams seemed to have new energy and tinkled merrily. The sea, no long- er smooth, began to roll and toss, sending spray in clouds. Life had come to Coral Gables again. A chill mist came in from the sea, and si- lently, ever so silently, darkness fell. Stars peeped out of the velvet robe of night. Mis- tress Moon shone brightly. But still persisting, the Town Hall spires gazed up into the sky, and the sea, glassy once more, lulled itself to sleep. Judith Kellock, Form IVC Age 9 38 SAMARA The Party At The Ark IAdolphus Ant, being one of the two cho- sen ants to board the ark of Noah, had just been counted and was crawhng into the ark. I was really quite scared to hear the door slam just as the first clap of thunder rang out as the first torrent of rain beat upon the ark. The cry went up, " We ' re off! " in fifty different sharps and flats. As we were feeling rather queer, and did not know each other ' s names, Mr. Noah an- nounced, upon the back of a hippo, that we would have a " get-acquainted " party. We worked very hard organizing this, and at two o ' clock by the wise owl (who kept time for us) the party began. First, we accomplished the main object of our party, to wit (as the owl would say) to get to know each other. The Noahs decided that the best way to do this was to have each animal get up and give his name and make a short speech about him- self. Apart from the ant-eater ' s long dull speech, everything went fine. When the food came in I got so excited that I slid down the trunk of the elephant on which I sat. The elephant happened to inhale at that time, pulling me inside his trunk. Oh horror! I guess I tickled it, for he blew me clear across the room with a ferocious snort. There I found some bugs, more my own size than the elephant. Now came the commotion caused by the above-mentioned ant-eater. At supper when everyone was asked what his favourite dish was, the ant-eater said in his loudest, most monotonous voice, " Ants. " " Come, come, " said Mr. Noah, " that won ' t do. We only have two ants on the ark, who mustn ' t be eaten. " I sighed with relief at this. " Or, " he continued, " we won ' t have any ants on our new earth! " He finally persuaded the horrid beast to try something else. Although I kept away from larger animals after that, I noticed that he had found some herbs which he seemed to be enjoying very much. After the food, we divided up into four groups according to size. Those three inches or under were in one group, two feet and smaller in another, and the big animals in an- other. The members of this group were very noisy and clumsy and could only play " Farm- er ' s in the dell " and " I Spy. " The smaller ani- mals played leap-frog and relay races. We played house, or slid down the giraffe ' s neck, or went for rides on the backs of the doves. At last we were getting sleepy so Mrs. Noah tucked us into bed. I whispered to the very pretty lady-bug on the next leaf that it had been rather nerve-wracking, but the best fun I had ever had. Catherine Hees, Form VC Nightingale A Carol There lay in David ' s city. On a cold winter day, A fine little baby Clothed in white array. Up above the manger There shone a great star. Glittering and gleaming It brought kings from afar. Shepherds saw the star too, And angels did appear; Told the men to leave their flocks For Bethlehem was near. The Wise Men brought their gifts Of frankincense and gold; The shepherds brought a little lamb For Jesus Christ to hold. Mary, the young mother, Was filled with pride and joy. While Joseph the carpenter Made Him a toy. The quiet little donkey Was proud to see the child Who lay on the knee Of Adary, mother mild. And still the star kept shining. And ever more shines clear. Within men ' s hearts the thought still stays Of Christ, who ' s always near. Jennifer Woollcombe, Form IVA Keller BOARDERS SKI-ING ST. JOHN CADETS, 1948 CANDID CAMERA SHOTS S A A [ A R A 41 Evening On The Farm THE sun is setting for the night in a huge glorious red ball of flame. The farmer is sitting on the porch in his favourite chair smoking his favourite pipe. Beside him his wife sits contentedly watching the chil- dren play on the lawn. In the pasture the horses are grazing and lazily switching flies off their backs. The last chicken is retreating into the coziness of its henhouse. The kittens have stopped romping about and have curled up beside their mother in their warm baskets. Rover, the dog, occa- sionally yelps with glee in his sleep, most like- ly dreaming about the fun he had chasing rab- bits through the fields. The ducks have stop- ped their quacking, and make a funny spec- tacle each standing on one foot with its head tucked under its wing. In the distance can be heard the lazy tinkling of a cow bell. Every- thing is at peace as the sun disappears behind the horizon. Lynne Maybueiry, Form IVA Keller Peace I sensed her coming as a child. When barefoot in the grass I felt a coolness, that beguiled My being, touch and pass. I thought to find her down the lanes That other feet had trod; It was not so. The winter rains Had washed the printed sod. Again I searched the hearts of men, Entreating without cease; ' Tis not by revelation then That Cometh peace. I know not yet, but those who know Say peace is neither sought nor won, But only comes as poppies grow. Upon the field where conflict ' s done. Shirley Smith, Form VI Matric. Keller Seasons In winter I like sliding And ski-ing down the hill. In fact I like all sports — They give me such a thrill. But when the summer comes And the birds are home to stay, I think I like our summer best. It is so bright and gay. Lynn Castanguay, Form II Age 8 Mother Moon 0 Another Moon In the sky so high.

Veena Malik, Lower IVB Age 10 Waiting For Inspiration I sit and wait for inspiration, But it won ' t come. I sit and wait, and meditate. And think of things Like a garden gate; I scratch my head And nibble a nail. But all to no avail. I sit and wait for inspiration. But it won ' t come. I sit and wait, and concentrate. And think of things Like fishes and bait; I tear up paper And wrack my brain. But it ' s all in vain. Christian Nothnagel, Form VI Matric Nightmgale 42 SAMARA The Haystack In this great rick of hay there lies A memory, of summer skies, Of flowers scattered in the grass. Of breezes warm that through them pass; Of flowers, yellow, pink and blue. Frail cups, fresh filled with morning dew; Of warm summer rain. Tall grasses stretching to the flame Of a hot dry June day, And men who come to cut the hay; The horses champing as they wait, The children swinging on the gate; A rising stack; muscles tired; and power And mechanism; pay, thirty cents by the hour. The thatcher with his ladder, twine on stick And memory rooted into the finished rick. Shirley Smith, Form VI Matric. Keller Thoughts Childhood dreams left undone, Schoolgirl targets unattained. Later aims unachieved; All now dragged From the fathomless pit of our desires, Bring fresh reminder of days gone by. Bring sparkling hope of days to come. Then solitude hangs heavy overhead And age creeps imperceptibly on; Great dreams dwindling and shattering into nothingness Fall heavily into the deep, dark void.
