Patricia Heeney; " ■ ' Bom with the gift of laughter And a sense that the world is mad " . Tish came back from Paris last fall and has been raving about it ever since. She has sailed through her schoolwork with the greatest of ease and a bit of persuasion at which she is a past master. Her artistic temperament is revealed in her violin playing and painting. She is also the man Friday of the hymn book. Her expressive gestures and vocabulary consisting of " ecoute " and sundry vowel sounds such as " Tunng " also denote her originality. Tish has a very infectious chortle which she fails to suppress with drastic results sometimes. She will discuss almost anything anytime, anywhere, with anyone, and it is impossible to shake her firm convictions. Tish has only one constant aversion, that being industry, but of late pickles have entered her black book. Tish is heading for McGill next year with Jane so that they may finish numerous discussions that Tish hasn ' t quite won. Best of luck, girl. Joan Maynard: " Why take life so seriously? You ' ll never get out of it alive " . Joanie was recently made a house senior. A familiar sight is Joan moaning, " The bell ' s gone " , at 8:55 as she dashes from the classroom to take girls down to prayers. Her car is useful to a great number of us as she is continually pressed into taxi service by lazy pedestrians ( mentioning no names ) . Joan has a large fund of jokes and appreciatively aids in all humorous activities. She is Nightingale ' s sports captain and is on the school basketball team. Her sport is tennis but she indulges in badminton occasionally, which inevitably proves disastrous for her opponent. She spends all her spare time during the summer term at the tennis club. This produces excellent results, as she is the school tennis champ. As a sideline she is writing her Junior Matric, which does not worry her unduly. Joan is returning ne.xt year for her Senior Matric and more fun. Joan Campbell: " Where duty calls or danger, Be never wanting there " . Joan started this year as a monitor, but we were all very pleased when she was moved up to the exalted rank of house senior. Joan is one of those people who never forget to do something once they have promised. This is especially useful when it comes to providing food for officers ' meetings! French is one of the things she is most noted for, and we always know where to go to find the correct endings for a verb tense, or how to spell a word. But French isn ' t Joan ' s only claim to fame— she will long be remembered for her friendliness, and her willingness to help anyone and everyone who needs it. Sally Wright: " Z must go down to the seas again " . . . Sally, more usually known as " Sal m ' gal " , is one of the most industrious members of her form. Besides achieving high marks in her subjects of both forms, 5A and 6 Matric, she has risen from rank of isonitor to the exalted position of house senior and is the proud wearer of a posture girdle. Her talent for sports has shown itself all year and she has been a wonderful sports captain for Fry. She is most adept at convincing unwilling classmates that fresh air is really good for them, and is first-rate at arguing her points in Scripture classes, etc. She is the proud driver of a little red convertible (when she can get it), and owns a lovely cat, George— quite a resemblance there, both are blue eyed and very tidy! Sal is coming back to us again next year and will be as indispensable as always.

Jiou Senior and Af(uuian4. Jane MulhoIIand: " No excellent soul is exempt from a mixture of madness " . ' Janeo ' — pronounced ' Jano ' — is one of the most persuasive of people. She also has an amazing gift for extracting herself from unpleasant situations and for using superlatives. A member of Six Upper, head of Keller and an illustrious house senior, she has an affinity for Tish Heeney, Josephine Stone and pigs although she does not intend to go in for farming. She is extremely bright in school— through no fault of her own. Her outside interests are wide and varied, so much so that I can ' t recall any at the moment. After a long struggle Jane has finally achieved responsible government. Jane is going to McGill next year and as we repair the dints in our armour, all concerned wish her the best of luck. Bobby Bradshaw: " have oft regretted my speech Never my silence " . The above denotes a certain impetuosity which Bobby does not entirely lack. One of the wiser types, however, Bobby is highly respected for her all-encompassing rule as half -head boarder. (No offence meant by the hyphen). She is also a house senior and the literary editor for the magazine. In this noisy troubled world, Bobby accomplishes things silently and effectively, a type of man behind the man behind the scenes. This summer Bobby is going to England where she intends to go to college. She deserves the best of everything and we shall always remember her as a good friend. Meg Reynolds: %et a S7nile be your umbrella " . Meg is a Brockville import, a house senior, a hard worker, the advertising head for the magazine and a good friend. She follows faithfully her father ' s precept of doing a little review every day and wants to be a social worker. Although Meg is very cheerful, she has several aversions, waste, taxis and pointless occupations. Her social life has flourished this year side by side with every other activity imaginable. She and Janet have two private jokes which none of us quit understand— one about fisheries and another about car salesmen? On entering Meg ' s bedroom one sees souvenirs from almost everything she has done this year. Meg finds them better than a diary. This summer will find Meg back at Merr ' wood, the Crippled Children ' s Camp where she does wonderful work.
