SAMARA 11 The Hallowe ' en Party 30th October. Dear Diary: It ' s rather late now, so I will only write a short note before I turn in. I just came back from our Hallowe ' en party. We had lots of fun. First came the grand m arch, and there was everything from an Elmwood girl to St. George and the dragon. Then we went into the dining room and (if you will excuse the expression) ate our little heads off. Then we moved our ice cream and candies back into the gym and watched the evening ' s entertain- ment. First the teachers put on three skits, " Pooh and Piglet " , " The Seven Dwarfs " , and " Goldilocks and the Three Bears " . These were followed by prize giving, when Mr. Toller (dressed as a beautiful lady) gave prizes. First, second and third awards were for a two-man horse, St. George and the dragon, and a porcupine. Consolation choco- late bars were given out as well. Then the lights were dimmed and a magician came on stage and performed many tricks. At last we all left, feeling very happy. That ' s all, so I am going to bed. Good-night. Arts and Crafts at Elmwood Senior Group This year the " Arts and Crafts " course has been very successful. Miss Maxwell has been extremely helpful and has given us many dif- ferent interests. Our first project last fall was cross-stitch- ing. Many attractive articles were made, in- cluding purses, place-mats and coasters. Leatherwork has also been very successful. Belts with intricate designs were made as well as wallets, change purses and some very nice moccasms. Felt was very popular this year. Lovely skirts of navy blue, pale blue and turquoise were made. Bags and stuffed toys ranked high in choice. Woodwork is our latest venture. Small toy animals and wooden brooches were made. Gaily painted, they were really attractive. Drawing was done by all grades to suit the season. A three dimensional project was enthusiastically received. The Red Cross Poster Contest was won by one of the girls. The kindergarten made little paper angels which were very popular. Altogether, it has been a very successful year. Junior Group This year Miss Maxwell taught us Arts and Crafts. We painted a few pictures such as Indian heads, dog and fox heads, horse heads, as well as Easter, Valentine and Christ- mas pictures. We also did some modern art and some finger painting. In crafts we did clay modeling, wove baskets, did cross-stitch, and made gimp bracelets. On Friday after- noons we had " Hobby " in which we made leather objects, such as belts, wallets, change purses, and book covers. We also made two

12 SAMARA kinds of velvet bags and carved wooden ani- mals in Crafts. Altogether, we have had a most interesting year of Arts and Crafts. Special Art Class This year the Special Art Class was very interesting and varied. Until Christmas Mr. Hyndman taught us; but as he was unable to continue afterwards, Miss Maxwell, the Junior Arts and Crafts Mistress, took over. The remainder of the course proved very novel as we tried several new tricks in painting. All in all, the art has been very good and we are very grateful to both Mr. Hyndman and Miss Maxwell. Music Piano— Many girls, both juniors and seniors, took piano lessons this year from Mr. McTavish. The school is becoming extremely musical; people who don ' t even take music had to be stopped continually from pounding out popular ditties on the protesting piano. Tish Heeney has played our hymns throughout the year and we are very grateful to her— and for her. Janet Chapman and Seddon Ryan both passed music exams with commendable results and deserve congratula- tions. Choir— This year the choir has been busy. There was a recital of Carols at Christmas and the choir also sang at the Confirmation Service at Christ Church Cathedral on Passion Sunday. Mr. McTavish has been invaluable and has given up a great deal of his time, which is scarce, since he has numerous other choirs as well. Public Speaking Juniors, intermediates, and seniors ... all were well represented in this year ' s public speaking contest. Harriet Nye and June Fraser tied for first place in the junior section. Harriet delivered a delightful httle speech on " My Dogs " , in which she openly admitted that she understood their naughtiness as she, too, was rather naughty at times. " The Toronto Subway " is a difficult topic for any one to talk on but June Fraser did it justice. We shall never forget the sentence in her essay to the eflFect that if they kept on build- ing subways they would soon reach China! All of the intermediate speeches were in- teresting and Sarah Jennings received top honours in this section for her talk on " UNESCO " . Semi-finalists in the senior group were Sheila McCormick and Sally Wright with Sheila emerging as victor. Sally chose to talk " On Public Speaking " , a very appropriate subject that amused all of us. Sheila, Elm- wood ' s ballerina, told us about " Anna Pav- lova " , one of the world ' s greatest ballerinas. Mrs. Bliss, our friend and judge, must have had a difficult time choosing the winners. All in all, we think that Elmwood once more lived up to its motto " Summa Summarum " . . . Highest of the High! Dances This year the Elmwood social season was highlighted by three dances. This is— your roving reporter, at large in . . . House Dmce: The Elmwood house dance was held in November. Taffeta was the gen- eral costume for the girls. Besides the various dances and interestingly impractical prizes, delicious refreshments were served and except for a minor ice cream hassle which cleared up, the year was off to a tremendous start . . . Formal: As I stepped in the door, a whispy idea of net, perfume and exquisite hair-do floated past my bewildered eyes. I looked uncertainly around me; the nearest boy marched up and manfully swept me around the floor as we discussed the beauties of orchestras, Toby Rochester ' s, in particular. The event was the Winter Wonderlamd formal— atmosphere (below zero) was pro- vided by two large thermometers on the stage and Winter Wonderland, written in snow- balls; silver icicles hung over every door, nook and cranny. Huge records, with accompanying titles of popular tunes in the theme of Winter hung
