SAMARA June 1965 SUCCESS IS NAUGHT: ENDEAVOUR ' S ALL ' - Browning Head Mistress Letter Dear Elmwood, Although some of the days may have seemed long in themselves, this year has gone like the v ind, hasn ' t it? Is it possible that you have completed another school year, perhaps even your 1 a s t at Elmwood? Could it really be twelve months ago that you came back from your summer holidays to see the new lockers and tennis courts, to meet so many new girls and to make so many new friends, When I turn back the pages of the diary which I have been trying (not always too successfully) to keep, I think about how much we have done and what a wonderful year it has been. Do you rememlser our week-end trip to Stratford - the sunrise as we sped along in the bus and the horses at Vickie ' s farm? There have been other highlights too: " The Nutcracker Suite " and " My Fair Lady " : Chopin at the Captial: our Christmas play and party: the bazaar for Sui Sang with all the jellied horrors of the horror-house: the Juniors ' Mardi Gras party and that bag of candies that would not burst: our visit to Cairine ' s sugar-bush: the " Folk-Mass " at St, George ' s and our guitars at prayers. As a background to all this there has been a constant pattern of hard work for you. Nowdays you hear much about how " tough " school-work is getting and what a high standard is required of students. Most of you listen and do your best; some of your best is very good indeed, for you know that pleasure and duty are two sides of one bright coin and we cannot have one side without the other. If we do con- centrate on the fun side only, sooner or later we shall regret the time that we have wasted. We often have to say " No " to pleasure, even when it is most attractive, if we are going to be women who have much to give rather than women who only want to get. So keep on working as hard as you can, but keep on laughing too, for the world needs all the sense of humour you can possibly give it. Here is a poem which I think you will enjoy. Remember that Balaam ' s ass stopped quite obstinately for an angel which his master, Balaam, just could not see: DONKEYS ' DELIGHT Ten mortal months I courted. Then I passed to a Master A girl with bright hair. Who is higher in repute, Unswerving in my service Trusting to find justice As the old lovers were. At the world ' s root Almost she had learned to call me With rigid fast and vigil Her dear love. But then Silence and shirt of hair. One moment changed the omens. She was cold again. For carelessly, unfairly. With one glance of his eyes A gay light-hearted Sailor Bore away the prize, Unbought, which I had sought with Many gifts and sighs. The narrow way to Paradise I walked with care. But carelessly, unfairly. At the eleventh hour there came, Reckless and feckless Without a single claim, A dare-devil, a ne ' er-do-well Who smelled of shag and gin; Before me (and far warmer Was his welcome) he went in. In stern disdain I turned to The muses ' service then, To seek how the unspeakable Could be fixed by a pen. Not to flinch though the ink that I must use, they said. Was my dearest blood, nearest My heart, the richest red. I obeyed them, I made them Many a costly lay Till carelessly, unfairly, A boy passed that way Who set ringing with his singing All the fields and lanes; They gave him their favour Lost were all my pains. I stood still in the chill Of the Great Morning Aghast. Then at last --Oh, I was late in learning- - I repented, I entered Into the excellent joke. The absurdity. My burden Rolled off as I broke Into laughter; and soon after I had found my own level; With Balaam ' s ass daily Out at grass I revel Now playing, now braying Over the meadows of light, Our soaring, creaking GLORIA, Our donkeys ' delight. C.S. Lewis Your affectionate friend and headmistress 3 PREFECTS Front Row: IngridGluzman, Brenda Firestone, Mrs. Stephen, Senior Mistress; Mrs. Blyth, Audrey Laidler, Mardie Aldous; Back Row: Lynne Williamson, Kate Scott, Candi Schwartzman, DeblDie Monk, Molly Blyth, Pam Foote.

We have completed another busy year at Elmwood. While observing our old traditions we have at the same time, tried to keep pace with the changing world. We have enriched our learning by attending concerts and p] ys varying in scope from the " Messiah " and " Richard 11 " to the " Beach Boys " and " Hamlet " in inodern dress. For the first time this year we have experimented with bands to play at our dances. This was so successful that we hope to continue the practice in the future. Also next year we intend to extend our extra-curricular activities to include violin lessons which may lead to an " Elmwood girls orchestra. " " Success is naught: Endeavour ' s all. " This is our school motto and one which we all try to live up to. Think about it and let it be your guide Love to you all Janice Pratley Margot Rothwell STAFF Front Row: Mrs. Ross, Miss.

To 6 Matric From Elm wood Were we your fairy godmothers today To give you magic wishes - one, two, three, Then we should wish you Faith as your mainstay. Your very maximum security. And we should wish you Hope to guide your way; She has the Morning Star twined in her hair; She sings the bird- song at the dawn of day And has no common language with despair. And we should wish you blessed Charity The love that gives, forgives and gives again, A deep, compassionate well of sympathy Created from a Cross of human pain. These are the treaures we should shower today. On 6 Matric, before you go your way. VALEDICTORY ADDRESS What does ' valedictory ' mean? The word is derived from two Latin words: dico . I say, and yalep, I am well. I think it is very interesting and significant that our school Latin dictionary gives two alternative definitions ofvalep: I am strong I am strong enough It seems to me that these definitions remind us of two of the most important lessons we have learnt at Elm wood: To be stron g: this means, perhaps, that we must be strong academically - that to the best of our abilities we must apply ourselves to our studies, and that we must use the knowledge and skills we acquire for the betterment of mankind. To be stron g enough : This surely reminds us of the moral aspects of life. We all have learnt from Elmwood that there is very much more to education than just studying and learn- ing. There is the development of character, and there is learning how to work together. As our house mottoes remind us: Friendship for all: Fair play; and Not for Ourselves Alone. We are grateful to you, Mrs. Blyth and to all the Staff of Elmwood, for teaching us these lessons, which will certainly remain with us for the rest of our lives. There may possibly come a time when one of two of us will be a little hazy about our declensions and our theorems, but I am sure that there will never be any doubt in any of our minds about how we should live our lives. We will always try to live up to our School motto; Success is nought, endeavor ' s all. Those of us who are leaving school in these modern days realize that more Is expected and required of us than in any previous period of history. These are difficult times, and many problems are facing us. There is much work to be done in the world, in so many fields, and we are willing and eager to do our share. As a poet says, ' A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands ' . It is Elmwood ' s aim to give its girls just these qualities. Valedicere - in English we would have to say goodbye or farewell, but these do not seem the right words to use this afternoon. What all the graduating class really want to say more than anything else, is Thank You to everyone. There can be no goodbyes today because Elmwood will always be with us and a part of us. To you, Mrs. Blyth, and to the Staff, and to the girls who remain at school, we say Au Revoir, and very best wishes to Elmwood. Audrey Laidler Head girl House Notes THE HOUSE SYSTEM As each new girl comes to Elmwood, she enters one of three Houses; Fry, Keller and Nightingale. Keller House is, however, comprised of Boarding School girls only. The day girls are divided between Fry and Nightingale. It is through these three Houses that House and School spirit arises and competition is keen. The school demerit system is chanelled through the Houses and in this way each girl is responsible to her House. All academic achievements, sports, and often behavior are important to the success of each House. At the completion of the School year the points of each House are totalled and the one with the highest score wins the cup presented to the House Head. This year we have had certainly three splendid House Heads who have tried in every way to create strong House spirit and inter-House competition.

Dear Fry, The year is over and it has been a good one. Fry ' s spirit is tremendous and we have tried hard to LIVE up to our house motto, " Friendship to all " . Certainly, we have extended a hand in " charity giving " and I am proud of you. Academically - what can I say - Fry is tops. Although we have not been too successful in sports, we have been there cheering, and we entered everything. Eight years in Fry House - and 1 say " Goodbye " with sadness, but with satisfaction. This has been the best year of all, for me, because of each of you. Best of luck Fry, With love, Mardie.

Nightingale House Notes Dear Nightingale, We in Elmwood have spent the year divided into three houses. What does this mean to us? To you members of Nightingale I have tried to make our house not only an academic and athletic competition but an additional learning experience for us all to keep with us long after we have left Elmwood. Our house is a society where each of us has been learning how to ascend our Nightingale triangle to obtain our individual asperations without trampling others in our climb, in essence " Not for ourselves alone " . It would be wrong for me tothank-youfor the goals that Nightingale house has obtained, for you have not been working for me, but have we not all been working for each other and for our school. This is not good-bye. Those of us who are leaving will come to learn as those who have left before us that Elmwood can not be left behind and while treading the upper path this echo will resound " Summa Summarm — Highest of the high " .

Keller House Notes Another year is drawing to a close and we are now looking back over all the wonder- ful times we have had in Keller, the boarders house (and home). Just like one big family, we have had our ups and downs, but because of our togetherness and spirit we ' ve climbed our mountains successfully. We would not have made it through some of our darker days without the help and support of our House- mother, Miss Robinson and the rest of the house staff. Miss Hudson, Mrs. Earle, and Mrs. Landymore. A great deal of credit is due to each one of them. Also our senior counsellors, Jane and Katie, and our junior cousellors, Fleur, Sue, Fiona, and Barb. Thank you all! As usual, Keller has " wiped up " on sports, winning both the basketball and volley- ball cups this year. We also made a clean sweep on Sport ' s Day with every Kellerite on the scene, either cheering or winning. Special thanks to Jane and Andy, Sports Captain and Co- Sports Captain, for spurring us on to victory. We have had many special " family gatherings " this year, namely our cornroast, our Christmas candlelight service, the Keller Hootenanny, and all our excursions, es- pecially Silver Lake and Lac Philippe, where we all had so much fun. There are so many wonderful memories for every Kellerite that not even half of what each one of us feels can be written here. Although we were not top in points we can safely say that we are top in spirit. The best of luck to Keller and its leaders of ' 65- ' 66 and we know that Keller will always keep its good name. Loads of Love, Debbie and Candi 17 Boarders Notes Our boarding school this year has been one of the best. We all settled down quickly in September and have had a year of fun, laughter and hard work. The year would never have been so successful without our two great head-boarders, Debbie and Candi. With their help we have had a year full of events including a candlelight service, a dance called " Goldfinger " and a wild " hootenanny " . Our thanks also go to the house staff . Miss Robinson, Mrs. Landymore, Mrs. Earle, Miss Hudson, Miss DriscoU and Miss Rowley have all given us their fullest support, and have made the boarding school a home away from home. We are going to miss all our 6m boarders and their kind help and advice. Once again we would like to thank Candi and Debbie who have given us a wonderful year we can never forget. 18 SPORTS NOTES This year, once again, sports played an important role in school activities. Sports have been under the direction of Miss DriscoU whose effort, time, and organization made Elmwood sports such a success. Katie Scott was our school sports captain while Louise Hurtig was elected sports captain of Nightingale, Cathy Firestone of Fry and Jane Hope of Keller. Either in cheering or in playing the whole school contributed to inter-house games. Keller House after several close games won both the basketball and volleyball for " ' 65 " . Not only did the senior and intermediate school participate in the tennis and badminton tournaments but there was also ardent competition in the junior school. The highlight of the tennis came in the spring term when Elmwood invited 8 boys from Ashbury to play in a " Round Robin " . As usual the juniors enjoyed their annual skating party. Many thanks to all who helped with the school sports and 1 hope that next year all the girls will carry on sports with enthusiasm and a sense of fair play.

LIZA EUREKA! I ' VE FOUND IT! THE BOARDERS ' BREAK! STRATFORD TRIP At six o ' clock Saturday morning September 26th., 1964, thirty-five sleepy students with Mrs. Blyth, Mrs. Aldous and Mrs. Fraser boarded a bus and set off to Stratford, For seven hours we amused ourselves by singing, reading, laughing, joking and catching up on our lost sleep. On the way up we made a stop at a way- side restaurant where everyone filled up on toast and coffee. By one o ' clock, we had finally reached our destination. After a picnic lunch in the park, we entered the theatre and took our seats. The first play, " Richard 11 " was marvellous. William Hutt, who portrayed King Richard performed, splendidly. Afterwards, we walked back to the " Windsor Hotel " and were assigned to our rooms. Utterly famished, we collected in the dining room and ate a delicious meal of chicken. That night, we travelled by bus to the theatre and saw " The Country Wife " . This was very comical, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Dead tired, we scrambled into our separate rooms into our beds, and were soon fast asleep. Next morning after breakfast, the majority of us went to St. James Anglican Church. After the service we were back on the road. , On our return to Ottawa, we stopped at the Binnie ' s farm. Here we had a huge buffet lunch, while we enjoyed the company of the household pets and the farm animals. Then we were on our way once more, leaving Stratford and the farm, and all the fun of that weekend far behind. We were now looking ahead to the time when we would arrive back home, safe and sound, and full of exciting news to tell about our wonderful trip to Stratford. PHILOSOPHY CLUB " Philosophy " means " a love of wisdom or knowledge " . All of us at Elm wood are philosopers, that is lovers of knowledge - although often the type of knowledge varies greatly. But this year, there has been found hiding in our ranks a devoted group who seem to like to " hear " about philosophy a little more than the rest of us. For many a Friday night they have rushed through rain, snow and home- work to listen to such eminent speakers as our own Canon Bruce, Sister Rosemary- Ann, Reverend Mr. Micheal Peers, Reverend Mr. O ' Driscoll, Padre Barnet and his film on Hong Kong, and Reverend Mr. P. Megs. All of these speakers have, 1 know greatly influenced their audience, for spirited dis- cussion on such topics as Predestination and the union of the denominations, the Christians role in education and the true meaning and value of the Crucifiction always resulted during the course of an evening. Therefore a special thanks must be given to all our guests for providing not merely interesting evenings but profitable and memorable evenings also. Too, we are all very grateful to Mrs, Blyth for her gracious hospitality in allowing us her home and fire for our discussions. The philosophy club has become this year a vital part of our education and recreation. On behalf of all Elmwoodian " philosophers " I would like to thank all those who allowed us the privilege of this experience, and made it what it was. Susan Burgess 5A THE UNITED NATIONS October 24th. nineteen years ago the United Nations was created in the midst of World War II from man ' s desire for peace and security. It arose out of the ruins of the fated League of Nations to become our hope for the future. The United Nations has three main purposes. They are to maintain world peace, to reaffirm the faith in human rights and to raise the living standards of all men. In answer to the many cries for help from numerous people and countries the United Nations has given their support in various ways. Some of these are the freedom from Hunger campaign, Unicef and the Canada Mysore project. People everywhere are dying of starvation or are impoverished due to their lack of knowledge concerning agriculture. The United Nations provides not only food to these people but modern farm machinery and qualified technologists to advise and help farmers. While we have enjoyed a happy childhood most children in the world have not; many of them suffer from disease and malnutrition. Through Unicef these children have the chance to become stronger and healthier; they also may receive a better education. Their home life is improved as well as their diets and medical attention. The Canada Mysore project is the work of many people who have established a training centre at Mysore, India. Here men and women from the east receive instruction in the handling of food so that they may become tecnologists. The United Nations has three main issues, disarmament, decolonization and development. Today we live in an atomic age, an age of new inventions and high living standards, but also an age under the threat of an atomic war. We can only be sure that this tragedy will never occur by renouncing our weapons and putting our atomic energy to better use. Through the United Nations colonies everywhere are taking their step forward into the sunshine of freedom. The .apron strings of the old countries are being slowly untied but the help and assurance from these mother countires will never be forgotten. Countries cannot only live on their freedom or their beliefs but must make their mark on the financial charts of the world. The United Nations gives economic and social assistance to the welfare of these countries. The United Nations help to develop fully the resources of any country which asks for aid. The education and training of the young people of today will produce the leaders of tomorrow. The United Nations has been working for the last nineteen years and will continue to do so for as long as it is needed. It will always stand up for men ' s rights and stand against the two sayings: " It is harder to build than to demolish. " and " It is harder to live in peace than to die in violence. " Fiona MacDonald October 22nd 1964 25 CHOIR NOTES The choir of 1964-65 would like to thank Mrs. Harwood- Jones very much for her patience and understanding in working with us. Under her competent direction, a Junior Choir was formed which relieved the Senior Choir every Wednesday and provided needed volume for our anthems. Wearing our new yellow gowns, we sang at Ashbury and St. Thomas ' . Although it was sometimes a great struggle to get to practices on time, we all tried our best. Sometimes we didn ' t all succeed but we certainly enjoyed the trying. Due to the varied types of music we sang, our musical appreciation has greatly broadened and matured. Thanks again to Mrs, Harwood- Jones for making the Choir such an enjoyable experience for us all. We said good-bye this year to Mrs. Edelsten who has worked with the choir and taught music at Elmwood for the past few years. We were sorry to see her go, but wish her the best of luck.

On November 27th. we held a successful bazaar, earning money for Sui Sang and his family. It was supported by everyone at Elmwood who contributed various self-made articles. As well as the baking and handicraft sales we had a number of enjoyable games including a loli-pop hoop-la, a money train, a horror house and an exciting raffle. This made the bazaar amusing and fun for all and also helped our worthy cause. Among the class contributions were a bake sale organized by 4A and the publication of a small news- paper by 5C, Every term, we try to send Sui Sang several letters telling him of our surrounding and life in Canada, relating interesting happenings and making him feel part of our family here at Elmwood. We have indeed been successful with our attempt to raise funds. The committee has done much to aid, but the school has given the support. Many thanks to everyone, students and teachers alike for their keen interest and many contributions to help make Sui Sang ' s life an easier and happier one. Cathy Firestone Mary Mackay-Smith; Jane Mirsky; Kathy Rothwell; Cathy Firestone DRAMA This year the senior and junior drama classes combined their talents to present both a " Variety Show " and a Christmas Play. While in the junior class, there was more emphasis on physical actions, the senior class con- sentrated more on the emotional side of drama. The results of their hard work were demonstrated in the " Variety Show " with a number of short and amusing plays: " The Case o Mister Whiskers " , " Sir George and the Turkish Knight " and " Two to Get Married " . As usual we put on a Christmas play. This year, it was " Christmas in the Market Place " which is the story of the Nativity narrated and performed in a towii square by a band of Gypsies who wander in the South of England. It was very successful and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The drama classes of 1965 would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Hicks for all the help and guidance which she gave to us throughout the year. We were dismayed to hear of her departure to India but we would like to welcome Mrs. Van Dine, the Assistant Director of the " Ottawa Little Theatre " , who will teach us next year. WHirS END Returning from Christmas holidays, 5C found itself faced with the problem of deciding on a project to raise money for Elmwood ' s foster son in Hong Kong Sui Sang. It was Patricia Wilgress who suggested having a paper; this was agreed upon by all. She was immediately voted in as Editor, perhaps because it was her idea- -therefore she should face the consequences! Disregarding for the time other more practical angles, we appointed other editors for: Art, Entertainment, Dear Willy, Literary, House Reports, Miscellaneous, Sports, and Ashbury, among others. These positions were changed through the year to give everyone a chance at " junior journalism " . After that, we heckled for a whole History period ( and many others, thanks to Mrs. Whitwill ' s tolerance " .) over the name of our paper. At last one weary father came up with a pun we all agreed on, and from then on, " Whit ' s End " was on its way. Omitting all the frantic typing and editing that went on at the " deadline " time of each issue, we all had a good time and were rather proud of the results: three five- or six-page issues and a profit of about twenty dollars to be sent to Japan. Our thanks go to every Whit ' s End reader for helping us to make it such a success, and to all who contributed to the paper ' s articles and stories. Without the guidance (and name-- in the title " Whit ' s End " ) of Mrs. Whitwill the assistance and " ditto machine " of Mrs. Aldous, the censorship and advice of Mrs. Blyth, and the organization of our able editor " Willy " (not of Dear Willy fame, though her name and advice was used there. . ,) it is very doubtful that " Whit ' s End " could even have made it to the " Presses " ! Vicky Nicholson To T LL Th ) toTH ANSWl R: BRANi:) XI 29 DANCES Once again our three houses Fry Nightingale and Keller held their dances but there was a new sense of excitement for weeks before them as Fry and Nightingale had bands to play. Nightingale ' s theme centered around the sea. Fi sh swam around the gym and across the curtains! Fry had " the Phantoms " from Lisgar to play and the decorations were based on their name. Ghosts and spiders made up the main part of the decorations. For their dance Keller had " the Raphaels " and their decorations were based on the famous Bond movie " Goldfinger " . Both the bands were very good and we hope to have more of the same. Although the juniors were not allowed to attend they lent their support and halp to make the dances the great successes they were. Anne Chaplin 5A Pat. Carlston 5A THE MESSIAH On Wednesday December 2nd., " The Ottawa Choral Society " under the conductance of Dr. Frederick Karam presented " The Messiah " by Handel. This took place at Christ Church Cathedral and was attended by many Elmwoodians as well as numerous other people. The singing was tremendous and enjoyed by all. We, the Elmwood girls were especially proud of our two mistresses Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Eraser who took part in the concert. We left with uplifted spirits, P. J. P. THE NATIONAL BALLET On Thursday February 4th., many Elmwood boarders and day girls went to the " Capitol Theatre. " There, they were entertained by an excellent and captivating performance of " The Nutcracker Suite " composed by Tchaikowski. I am sure that almost every girl there was transported with Clara into a beautiful " Land of Snow " and into the " Sugar Plum Fairy ' s Palace " in the " Kingdom of Sweets " . All those who were taken off into Clara ' s dream must have experienced a wonderful and memorable evening. P.J.P. PUBLIC SPEAKING In the fall Elmwood held its annual public speaking contest. Before the whole school, talented students chosen by their English teach- ers were given a chance to show their abilities in public speaking. Both the audience and com- petitors alike were instructed as well as enter- tained throughout the morning. The theme of each speech was " My Favour- ite Charity. " Because of keen competition among the juniors Sarah Jane Hardy and Leslie Haliday tied for first place. Sarah Jane Hardy delivered a very inspiring and heart warming talk on Dr. Bernardo ' s Homes. Leslie Haliday ' s moving speech on the Canadian National Institute for the Blind was a fine effort. Barbara Dodge won the Intermediate Prize with a very appealing speech on the Mackay Home for Deaf and Crippled Children. Fleur Wallis was the deserving winner of the Senior Prize with her unique speech on multiple sclerosis. We have all profited greatly from this morning of speeches and always look forward with anticipation to the next public speaking contest, Brenda Firestone 6M " My Fair Lady The facts on the film " My Fair Lady " can be easily stated. The movie was sim ply " lovely " - ask any of the Elmwood boarders who saw it. The great thing about " My Fair Lady " seems to be its uniformity of skill, for out of George Bernard Shaw ' s intellectual comedy comes both enthusi- astic characterization, and a rich musical score which especially caught the attention of the boarders, for, for weeks afterward, one could not walk along any corridor without hearing the " strains " of " I ' ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face " , " Wouldn ' t it Be Loverly " , " The Rain in Spain " or " I Could Have Danced all Night " . It was a memorable evening, and may we thank all who made it possible. Susan Burgess 5A.

They hopped over to the Smallwood tree for they were Blyth with happiness and there they Rosenthalled cheerfully. A Ker went by and they flew into the air turning to their VVright. They took out their small amount of money consiting of a few Nicholsons and headed for the shop where they would buy the before mentioned Halupka. They met two Edwards and and O ' Neill (pronounced oniole). They came to a Mitchell tree and stopped for a Tanczyk, Lawrence, another friend of theirs joined them also. As they Wilgressed lightly into the air they found them selves in the midst of an Armitage of Maclarens, who were going south. One of them, called Francis, decided to go with the Band; very soon they came to a store with the Phillip ' s advertisement above it. This was it at last! They entered the shop and layed down their money. But too late they found out that Halupkas do not cost a Nicholson.

Libby Scott, Barbara Ker, Diane Pickett, Jane Mirsky, The case of the Brilliant Perceptive Chief Police Inspector Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma scratched again, this time more thoughtfully, at the now almost raw patch behind and above his left ear and reviewed the facts once more: Remo Vector, the town ' s teenage gang leader, was dead. His body had been found early one morning six months ago, and the Viennese Detectives were growing more and more frustrated; especially when they remembered that of their two suspects, only one could serve as the object of their excess energy; the other was an American, so frequent encounters with knuckle-dusters were not practical, because she, Sherry Stonefeller, promised to tell her Daddy if anything untoward was committed against her red-blooded person. Inspector Ferdinand watches his superior carefully, then slowly he shifted position, and released a long and timorous sigh. John Slithe sat dumpily on his bunk and kicked idly at the steel bars that surrounded him, and thought longingly of the hot breakfast at the underground cafe, which would have been his usual fare at this time of the morning, and which he was just escaping to, via the exit on Operning, when a constable had clamped a leaden hand on his shoulder, six months ago. Sherry Stonefeller stuck her tongue out of the Mdndow of her suite in the Sacher Hotel, the direction of the plains- clothesman patrolling beneath her window. Then she stamped her foot once, then again, and sat down ti write bitter and complaing letters to Daddy about " these Viennese " Private Tuern tramped happily, from one end of the Red Army Memorial past the fountain, to the other end, and back again. Occasionly he smiled, he liked his job. He had an l.Q. of 72, and although his parents had had trouble with him as a child, (his baby-sitters complained of his accuracy with a bow and arrow, an it was impossible for him to sleep if he didn ' t have some hard object, preferably a pistol, with him in bed), the army was perfectly satisfied with him. In fact. Private Tuern liked his work so much that he sometimes patrolled two shifts instead of one. " Let ' s go over it again, " said Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma. He tapped his pen on the desk a few times, to give his words a little more emphasis, and looked sharply at Inspector Ferdinand, who meekly yessed. " Sherry Stonefeller killed Remo Vector be- cause Remo Vector whistled at her when she walked past him. She left his body in the park, so that I would think the guard did it. Luckily, I ' m too smart for that kind of nonsense. " " Yu-essssssir! " said Inspector Ferdinand. Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma grinned modestly to himself, and flic k- his eyebrows up and down a few times to help strengthen his projected image. " And John Slithe killed Remo Vector be- cause I have never liked John Slithe, or. .um..er — John Slithe I know is a detestable character, and Constable Leadarm says he saw Slithe just about to escape in the crowds of the cafe, when he was fortunate to nab him just after the murder.. Not fortunate, I say Clever, I say, clever, yes clever. I say that boy ' s going to go to the top, straight to the top; mark that ' s what I say I say that. Inspector Ferdinand looked discouraged. " The one thing you DID say we know is that Slithe and Miss Stonefeller aren ' t partners. I don ' t know how you know these things, but I can tell you know them, sir, " " It ' s nine o ' clock, " said Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma, and the two men stood up, as was their habit, and Ferdinand waited for the exit of his superior before his own, as was his habit, then they walked past the Opera House and boarded a train, which took them to the Red Army Memorial Park, as it had done at nine o ' clock for past six months, " The Inspectors turned up their collars and dodged carefully from tree to tree, until they gained the security of the juniper bushes, behind which they crouched, waiting, intent, and furtive. At ten o ' clock. Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma said " It ' s ten o ' clock " , and the two men stood up and walked nonchalantly, with pocketed hands, as was their habit, to th e outdoor cafe some hundred yards distant. " The murderer still hasn ' t returned to the scene of the crime " , ventured Ferdinand, as they seated themselves in the cafe. Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma cleared his throat in his best business-like manner, and flicked his eyebrows up and down to give himself a knowing look, " Ferdinand " , said he, weighing and deliberating shrewdly, " Ferdinand Ihave uhh.,er solved the .,uh. .mystery of this...um mystery. " Ferdinand closed his eyes in respect. " Ferdinand, " said he " Remo Vector killed him- self it was suicide. " Chief Inspector Solvester Enigma received the " of course " of Ferdinand the " of course " of his superior, the " of course " of the courts, the " of course " of the newspapers, the " of course " of John Slithe, and the one thousand dollar tip of Sherry Stonefeller, graciously. The suspects were freed and the case was closed and Solvester Enigma was pleased to accept a modest raise. Private Tuern, glad of the safety of his precious Red Army Memorial, kept pacing and chuckling. He had saved it from the contempt of a teenager.

Thou wer ' t once long ago so real, And now in such rare dreams appeal; We dare forget thy loving name And are unhappy steeped in fame. That which was our happiness Is now thus lost in endless mess; Whatever made our world so bright Is now departed from our sight. ■y Yet still from time to time returns A memory sweet and so one learns That to remember thee, to love, Would give our lives true sense enough. And so we love thee, our true Queen; We know thee only in our dream; Yet thou hast won such widespread fame " Mary Poppins " is thy name! Dolphi George 5A Candi Schvvartzmaii Senior Art Christianity Ever since I was a child I have pondered over many questions. Who made me? Who am 1? What is my purpose in life? Do I believe in God? These are questions which everyone asks at some stage in her life. When you stop and think about them, you soon realize that they are difficult to answer. It all began in the tiny city of Bethlehem in Judea about 4 B.C. where Jesus of Nazareth was born of the Virgin Mary and her carpenter husband Joseph. Yet the babe born in this small stable was to be the Son of God and the Saviour of iVlankind. Jesus, with the aid of His twelve apostles, taught, preached and healed. Jesus showed miraculous powers in turning water into wine at the wedding at Gana, in healing the sick, in feeding five thousand with five loaves and two fishes, and in performing many other wonders. Wherever He went He sought out the lowly, associating with publicans, with the poor and the miaimed, even sin- ners. To all who were suffering He brought a message of comfort: " Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. " Love was the keynote of His preaching. " Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength, this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this. Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. " He even taught, " Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. " He bade his men follow the law of Moses and the words of the proph- ets, " Think not I come to destroy the law, or the proph- ets, " He said, " 1 am not come to destroy but to fulfill. " But for all the truth, kindness, gentleness and love which He brought to the world, the people rewarded him with death. He was crucified by the Romans, only to rise three days later and ascend to heaven, returning home to the Lord our God. Thus we have the beginning of Christianity which was soon to spread far and wide. It was a religion that the slaves clung to as a spiritual salvation from tedious labour and the wealthy hung on to, craving for a religion such as this. Christianity did not take the world by storm for at the time of the death of Jesus, His immediate followers numbered scarcely a hundred persons. For several years after the crucifixion, the disciples re- mained at Jerusalem, preaching and m.aking converts with great success. The new faith met so much hostility from Jewish leaders in the capital city that the followers of Jesus withdrew to Samaria, Damascus and Antioch. In these places there were many Jews, among whom Peter and his fellow apostles laboured. Up to this time the new faith had been spread only among the Jews. A new convert, Saul of Tarsus, after- ward the apostle Paul, did most to admit the Gentiles to the privileges of the new religion. He made three great missionary journeys bringing the gospel and the word of the Lord to Europe, establishing many -churches in Asia Minor and Greece, during more than thirty years of un- ceasing activity. Teaching, as it did, a doctrine of humility and brotherhood, Christianity won most of its early converts among the poor and the oppressed. When its adherents became numerous, their refusal to worship the emperor and to observe other pagan rites and customs seriously disturbed the political authorities of the Roman Empire. Yet despite the tidings of " peace on earth, good will to men, " which Christianity brought to the world, the Christians suffered terrible persecution for nearly three centuries. Sometimes furious mobs in the large cities attacked the followers of the new faith. In addition to these occasional outbreaks were the efforts of the Roman government to crush the Christians, beginning with persecutions under Nero in 64 and Domitian in 95. How- ever the Christians, as the martyrs like Saint Stephen, were happy for death. They were going home and firmly supported their religious beliefs. It was not until the Edict of Milan in 311 under the Emperor Constantine that toleration was given to this new and different faith. I have discovered how Christianity began, how it spread, why it spread, by whom it was supported and I have failed to explain what it is. Yes what is Christianity? It is a religion that believes in the supernatural. It is not just a set of ' morals or an ethical code but rather a mystical union of its believers with Christ, It is the revelation of God through Christ. And yet Christ, who took the flesh form of a human being, died for us, the Lord ' s church, as the saviour of mankind dying for our sins, sorrows and suffering. He was the life of the world, showing us that although both good and evil are present in our world, the good would ultimately triumph. Christi- anity is Christ and Christ represents all the possible virtues in our world. Christ is truth. Christ is trust. Christ is humanity. Christ is humility. Christ is kind- ness. Christ is tenderness. Christ is gentleness. Christ if forgiveness. Christ is authority. Christ is justice. Christ is mercifulness. Christ is comfort. But above all, Christ is love-the love for God and the love for your neighbours, both friends and enemies alike. Christ is this and more and so, in turn this is Christianity. It is a religion, perhaps the most materialistic of all. Christ is everywhere, in everything, with everyone. Christianity is a moral force working for the betterment of mankind. It is a belief in the fatherhood of God, also implied in the belief in the brotherhood of man, resulting in the practical effort to relieve the lot of the poor, the sick and the downtrodden and transforming the ethical standards of the world. Christianity is a way of life with the Lord God as our leader, as our guide and as our saviour. We see three aspects of the Lord-God the father who holds life in His hands like a dress, fashioned by one, worn by many. God the son, Jesus Christ, who showed the many- sided character of the Lord, while on earth and who sacrificed His life to bring peace, goodwill and love. And God the holy spirit who came to life by a sound of rushing wind, to live in the hearts of every soul on earth. To me this is Christianity. " C " is for Christ born our saviour. " H " is for the holy day on which we cele- brate the Lord ' s birth. " R " is for the righteousness He brought. " I " is for the intelligence He maintained. " S " is for His sacramental way of thinking. " T " is for the trinity we have. " I " is for the inspiration He instilled in His followers. " A " is for the authority He possessed. " N " is for the neverending presence of our Lord. " I " is for His influence on all. " T " is for the thankfullness we owe our Lord. " Y " is for you and me, the Lord ' s children, who will forever have trust and faith in God and believe in Christianity. Cathy Firestone 5A. 46 Character Sketch He was an old man. He was a valiant man, a sometimes cruel and lazy man, yet, - a great man. His eyes twinkled mischieviously, his smile was warm and somehow impressive. His body was not shrunken and slow, nor was his mind. He held himself erect, he kept his dignity, he did not slobber or slouch. His arguments and views were good ones, he was a stimulating conversationalist. Perhaps he was now forgotten, some said he was. His proud and still beautiful wife had not for- gotten him, nor had his staunch friends and many loyal supporters. When most elderly people of his age stopped listening and watching, he did not. He realized there was still much that he did not know about God and man. When he died, many wept, while bells tolled all over the world. For the first million years that he is in eternity he will probably paint, as he said he would do. Some people will forget him, but not many, for although Churchill was an old man, his years were valiant ones, Kathy Roth well 5 A Ottawa au Printemps Le prin temps est la plus belle saison de I ' anne ' e, Les villes sont tout belles avec leurs fleurs, A Ottawa, chaque prin temps, il y a une Fete de Tulipes, Beaucoup de personnes viennent a Ottawa pour voir les tulipes.

The careless world speeds on and on and never seems to bother. About the buildings, homes and such, once known by your grandfather. A landmark is a part of us, that ' s buried deep inside, A piece of our own history that we should treat with pride. Decrepit and quite useless, you possibly might say, They also are a memory of things of former day. This might have been a great hotel with laughter in its hall s. It might have witnessed feasting and gaiety and balls And if the walls could talk, the stories they might tell. But they stand firm and silent, and guard their secrets well! But though they stand now empty as the people dead and gone, They must not be forgotten, for something can be done, As flowers that have withered and flourished with the rain, If you would care restore them, their charm could live again.

Dolphi George 5A 47 Margot Rothwell 5A Senior y rc MEDICAL INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION The day before Thomas Dooley died, Cardinal Spellman assured him that " in his 34 years, he had done what very few have done in the alloted Scriptural Lifetime " . Graduating from Medical School, Tom Dooley seemed destined to become a society doctor: instead, he became a U.S. Navy doctor, and was sent to North Vietnam, where he helped over 610,000 wretched Anti-Communist refugees to escape. The misery and the terrible con- ditions had such a lasting effect on him, that he wrote : " I must remember the things I have seen. I must keep them fresh in my memory, see them again in my mind ' s eye, live through them again and again in my thoughts. And, most of all, 1 must make good use of them in to-morrow ' s life. " He left the Navy, and planned " Operation Laos " , a mission which would take him into the depths of the country where people were living near Communism, on the " rim of hell, the edge of to-morrow. " Aside from donations, and later, supplies from the Laos Ministry of Health, he financed much of this enterprise from his own pocket. Working first in Van Vieng, and then in Nam Tha, Tom Dooley built his hospitals, and treated people for : leprosy, cholera, smallpox, tuberculosis, malaria, yaws, malnutrition, beri- beri (a Vitamin B deficiency), and worst of all : horrible open wounds which had become infected. He trained native nurses and midwives, and held hygiene and sanitation classes. He felt that these people wanted to help themselves, did not want to remain under present conditions, where pain and hunger were constant and natural. Doctor Dooley found that the basic fight in Laos was against ignorance, not disease. The chief causes of this ignorance were the witch- doctors. The story of the boy Ion is an example of this. Ion ' s clothes had caught fire one night, and he had been dread burned from his shoulders to his hips. For fourteen days he had suffered agony, while local witch-doctors rubbed his burns with a mixture of pig ' s grease, betel-nut and cow-dung. As a result, his back was crawling with maggots, feasting on his charred flesh. His body was emaciated and his skin was burned down to the rib-cage. From this living-death. Ion was taken to Dooley ' s hospital, and survived, almost by miracle, to be a terribly deformed little boy. Thus often, serious cases of Doctor Dooley ' s were compounded by the witch-doctors. Another cause for concern was the ever- present shadow of Communism. At any time, Dooley and his team of helpers might be taken prisoners by the Chinese Communists who roamed Laos, trying to spread their influence. Communist banditry was common too. Once, a man and his wife were brought to Dooley, half-dead from severe sword-wounds : but, they were lucky to be alive, for their child and its grandmother had been literally quartered by these murderers from China. Here, amongst such suffering, Dooley learned not only the power of prayer, but the power of gentleness, intelligence, and a strong will, over pain, hunger and ignorance. He re- alized that he had to be content with slow and small progress, because of the enormity of his task. He emphasized the bonds the people of this Earth, and tried to meet the biggest need of his age, which is " a sense of connectio between man and man " . He returned to America, and founded MEDICO, short for Medical International Cooperation. Teams, like his own in Laos, were sent out to four Nations to spread his work. Albert Schweitzer became the honourary patron of MEDICO. During the last years of his short life, Dooley struggled against the excruciating pain of malignant cancer, which spread to his lungs, brain, liver spleen and heart. He kept on working, however, and built seven hospitals in the most serious areas of Asia. When he died, at 9.45, on Wednesday, January 18th 1961, at tlie age of 34, his work was done, and all that remained was for his successors, ordinary people like you - and me, to carry on. He lived his life along these lines of Robert Frost " The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep. " The promises are fulfilled. Doctor Dooley, and now, you sleep Victoria Nicholson 5C 49 Who is it? This is a man who never gives up. Although it seems as if there are no more scandals left, he always manages to discover one. He tries very hard for perfection but it is a sad truth that his French speeches can only be understood by English speaking people. " When the blast of war blows in his ears and when he is in the A Happy Everyone has been happy at some time or other. There are big things to make you happy: a party, a dance, spending the night at a friends, a good report card, an honour, a sports trophy, a good movie, a lovely present, a swimming pool, a wonderful trip, a gorgeous summer, a new dress and many others. There are also little things: a letter from a friend, a fresh spring day, crunchy snow, crisp leaves, a favorite song, a pretty poem, a friendly smile, a word of praise, the feeling that you are wanted and a good day ' s work. There are many types of happiness and as many causes as there are types! Of all these various kinds would you consider a broken leg as one? Let me explain how it was. One cold Saturday in March, 1 broke my leg. While skiing down a hill, snow blew in my face and I fell heavily on my right leg. The next few hours were a blur of faces, a sleigh our car, the hospital, a kindly nurse and finally a burdensome cast. Well, every sad story has its happy side and mine has to! After the first few days my leg ceased to ache and I was able to have visitors. Often I had more than 3 at a time. While everyone The River of Where Ottawa quietly rolls Her black waters, Where the leaves do not whisper Where the streams do not bubble, Where only gloomy pines Stand dark and proud, The far-away sparks of wigwams flash.

I almost forgot to mention that he has curly hair. And so, my fellow Canadians, I leave it with you to discover the identity of this colourful person.

My cast was literally covered with auto- graphs and when it was replaced, the new layer was soon as thickly coated with names as the first one had been! I spent two weeks in bed and during this time 1 was showered with flowers, books, dolls, puzzles candy and " Get Well " cards! 1 never had to lift a finger because I had a kind nurse to bring me things make me comfortable and help me. Ah ! That was the life of luxury ! ! Though the long days were pleasant and relaxing, 1 looked forward to the time when my friends could visit me! I would lie back content- edly and let them recount the day ' s activities and school news. As you can imagine I was anxious to learn how to use my crutches. Not only did I learn how to walk but to run and skip. I would often let people try my crutches while I happily took my turn at skipping rope to the amusement and delight of my friends! Maybe, you now understand what 1 mean when 1 say, " this was a happy incident, " Paula Lawrence 5C the Woods Where the axe of a man Did not disturb the silence. Where only the north wind. Slightly bothered the wave. And where in the calm of nature The severe, dark forests grow, Here gently splashes the river of the woods. Translated from Russian Elizabeth Tanczyk 5C STORM WIND A disturbing place. The pale waves could turn to tortuous liquid mountains with ease. The wind would rise suddenly, and churn up the sea until it became a wild, moving mass of inky water. Rain would wash down the sides of the jagged, dangerous black cliffs, making their sheer sides slippery and shiny. The pink beach would disappear under the pounding waves, A few hun- dred feet out, beaten by the rain and the stormy sea - the old lighthouse stood. No revolving lantern but a flare sheltered from the wind and lit each night by the keeper ' s daughter, warned wayward ships of the treach- erous shoreline. There she was now. Tall and dressed in white, carrying a burning torch that showed her as a ghost walking to the lighthouse over the rocks through the falling dusk. Indeed, I thought at the time, she was very ghostly, gliding over the sharp rocks as though her feet were not on the ground. It was odd that I should have seen her that evening. Odd also that 1 should have been carried away by imagination, rather than realize what lay behind the peaceful village ' s front. Of course, 1 was not usually interested in the village happenings, but 1 must admit 1 was carried away by the heavy atmosphere that night. 1 thought then that, dressed as an angel, she gave the impression of being an angelic torch-beared on her way to light the stars Later that night, one of the area ' s terrible storms swept and ravaged sea and coast. The villagers looked worried. Alone in my room, I listened as the wind blew relentlessly on the whipping trees. The sea crashed over the rocks and the beach, and 1 could visualize the cruel black waves sweeping up the sides of the frail little lighthouse. 1 wondered whether or not the flare could be blown out, but then 1 remembered having seen how the structure of the roof and the three walls pre- vented this even in a storm such as this one. It was to be expected that the inhabitants of this sleepy, old-fashioned village. Storm Wind, should still prefer a flare in their lighthouse to a revolving lamp. There was some romantic old tale of a band of smug- glers, a betrayal, and an execution The flare, used by the smugglers, had never been replaced, supposedly because the lighthouse was a memorial to the betrayed men From a state of descending sleep, I was aroused by a loud crash which could be heard above the roaring tempest, and a simultaneous noise of splintering, split- ting wooden beams. Ship on the rocks! was the thought that leapt to my sleepy mind. People were already swarming out of their cottages, shouting above the gale, as they donned sou ' westers to ward off the driving rain. 1 got up and as 1 dressed 1 wondered ruefully why a place with such wild weather would ever have been used as a smuggling port. But there thoughts were left in my room as the immediate emergency soon occupied my mind and energy. The wind nearly blew me down when 1 first stepped out of the shelter of my door way. I ran, or stumbled, toward the beach where people were al- ready gathered with ropes and huge hooks to rescue survivors. There she was lying on her side, her heart pierced by the sharp rocks, her masts down, her sails floating on the water like great torn handkerchiefs. She was a sight — a wretched, moving, sad sight. But why had she come in to shore? The lighthouse was there to warn her off as if to prove this to the broken vessel 1 turned instinctively toward the ancient landmark. Only the moon shone on the gleaming, wet sides. The flare was not burning. The girl — where was the girl? What had happened to the angel with the flaming torch? The stars were on fire, but the lighthouse was in darkness and t he angel was not to be found When the people realized why the ship had hit the rocks, they addressed eager questions to the few survi- vors, now safe on the sands, I was amazed when I heard the weak sailors say, offshore,, .waited. ..for. ..signal ,,, " A11 gone,,, wine brandy silks.., lace,. .gold,,, " Smugglers! It had dawned on me slowly that these soldiers were " in " something with the villagers, and now 1 knew that it was not piracy, but simply smuggling, an illegal but much practiced sport among innocent little villages such as Storm Wind. Then the conversations became quicker and louder .,. " Why was it not lit?,,. Fools! Where is the girl?..,. Well, look for her,,, find her! " Sol No one except me had seen her the evening before, I say ' before ' because it was by now early morning, although you would not know it from the sky, which was still as black and stormswept as the sea. They all obviously thought she has disappeared on purpose, without lighting the flare: they did not consider that she might have drowned. I had seen her, almost at the lighthouse. She had paused to wet a finger, to deter- mine " the wind direction so that she could put the sliding covers around the light in such a way that it would be sheltered all nignt. Only,, .then she had smiled and turned away, I remembered painfully; but... surely only to gather a bit of driftwood to take home for the fire! Nothing so lovely could ever plan the ruin of a ship laden with con- traband goods in which her father and many friends had a share. No, something had happened to her, 1 was sure.. I knew the villagers would never believe me, so I decided then and there that I would find her, or at least, the truth; I felt that someone owed her that, if she was dead and tossing in a watery grave given to her by Fate It was several days after before 1 could discover anything to add to what I already knew about her. There was simply no opportunity to do so, as the villagers would not have appreciated any obvious meddling from a stranger such as I was. In fact it was not until a " local " volunteered his confidence that I gained any- thing for my meagre store of knowledge. Sitting in the old " Gale Warning " , a tavern, 1 was approached by none other than the aging lighthouse keeper. His weather-beaten face had new lines: lines of anxiety and sorrow. He sat down, his hand shaking so much that the froth overflowed as he banged his mug on the table. He gave me a sheepish look, but 1 pretended not to have seen. Then he opened the conversation. " This has been a great tragedy for me. " But his tone was lifeless. " Do you believe she is dead? " Could I pump any- thing from him ? " I hope so... " " What! " " Well, uh.. .murdered? " " 1 don ' t care. I just hope she didn ' t want that ship on the rocks. " " Would there be any reason for her to? " " Yes, in a way. " Why was he so vague? " What way? " Was I too eager, I had to be very careful " It ' s an old story. .perhaps you have heard it. ..You see, the lighthouse is a memorial to some village smug- glers who were betrayed and executed " 1 knew that, but what connection...? " .i. We ' ll leave the betrayer out of this it wasn ' t her Well, her brother was a soldier. ..h a d always wanted to be,,, He was stationed here, which was a threat to the smugglers, or rather, " us " smugglers... " We were interrupted by some old sea-dog murmur- ing pleasantries. It gave me time to think and to soak in what I had learnt: at the same time 1 was impatient to know where the soldier brother came in... He had gone, and the keeper was talking again.... " You probably realize that the smuggling has started again; this time there are no soldiers. Why ? I ' m coming to that. But there was his s i s t e r...they wanted to kill her but 1 think she turned the tables.... " 1 never did finish my conversation with the girl ' s father, but I did get my information and in a more in- teresting way, I was walking along a lonely little path that I had newly found. As there was quite a drop down, on the other side, I kept to the inner side and tried not to look down. But just as I was turning to go back, 1 cast a quick glance down to the jagged rocks beneath. I stopped dead. Was it a trick of the deeply-coloured setting sun or did my eye catch a flash of white among the rocks below? There she was - the " angel " . I wondered at that moment what her real name was. It was a long way back along the path, then down to the beach and along it and for a while 1 had trouble find- ing her. When I did it was not a pleasant form of death that met my eyes. She was water-bloated beyond recog- nition, but I knew her from the remains of her white dress that still clung to her. 1 sat down near her, in a trance, for a long time. When 1 finally brought myself back to reality, it was dark and drizzly and I kn ew it was too dangerous to try to reach the village. It was with some horror then that I faced the prospect of spending a lonely night with only .,..a corpse for company. The distorted corps of some- one you had known when she was young and beautiful. No, it wasn ' t a pleasant fate but it gave me the chance to do a lot of thinking as I was too afraid to fall asleep. Out of my thought two or three distinct ones emerged... The girl bore no signs of violence from what I could see, though that is quite a sweeping statement consider- ing her condition. Around her neck was a tarnished military button hanging from a thin strip of leather. On the back of the button " Lee " was engraved crudely. Of course- -her soldier brother- -my last clear thought was a question: how did she die and how had she come to be this far along the beach? Washed up, was my immediate thought. It was quite a funeral, with a few mourners and only a small tombstone bearing: " Willow - 1860-1879 " Willow, she was called. I turned and surveyed her brother ' s stone, " Richard- 1852-1873 " I think, looking back, that was the most startling part of my investigation. I had never considered the possibility of Lee being anyone but her brother and now I was faced with a new complication.. .who was Lee? From the military button I guessed that he had been in the same regiment as the brother, stationed here at the time of the betrayal and execution of the smugglers. The brother had been killed in the fray that night, in 1873, so it was not so long ago; the villagers always made it out to be of time long past. Had Lee been killed then? Where would his grave be and would it give his last name? That was the odd thing about the graves of the brother and sister they gave only the first names.,. The thought of all the mysteries that needed clear- ing up gave me an idea that had never before occurred to me, A diary, was she the type that would keep one? Or maybe something else among her belongings would explain all this, I knew that they could not have been divided up yet or even touched,.,. not until after the fu- neral. But the funeral was over now and the few mourn- ers were leaving fast. The lighthouse keeper had been among the first to go. Would he get to her things before me? Was there something he had to hide or destroy among them? I escaped from the graveyard and broke into a run. When I got there it was too late. The lighthouse keeper barred the way. " What do you want? ' he growled. He was much more on the offensive that the last time I had seen him. How could I ask him for some token of the girl? I didn ' t really want one, but how could I ask him for her diary so I could try to solve the mys- tery? It would all sound very suspicios or just stupid. I had to try. " l.,I ' m interested in the button she wore around her neck. It ' s very old. Can I look around for the uniform? " " It ' s not here. Her brother was buried in it. The button was a spare one, " " That ' s impossible. You know the button wasn ' t her brother ' s in the first place. Are people usually buried in each other ' s uniforms? " That had shaken him. He thought for a minute. Then a scowl spread over his face, " What difference does that make to you? " " I ' m looking for a man, his name is Lee. You wouldn ' t have heard of him, would you? " That had a visible effect on him. He seemed about to say some- thing but stopped and scrutinized me. His face cleared. " I know lots of Lees. What ' s his last name? " I wished that I had some wild hunch to try out but I couldn ' t think of one last name other than my own that had any connection with all this mess. But I had another hunch which I could try out. " You should know his last name. He was a friend of your son. " That produced a result. He sprang forward but checked himself, " How much do you know? " he asked, " Enough to force you to tell me more. " What I needed was a trump, something I could throw in his face to make his reserve crack. Then I remembered our first conversation and I had my trump. " Pity your daughter drowned before you and your friends could do away with her, but it is more conven- ient this way! She did hate you too much for safety. " I tried to sound sarcastic. " All right, all right. I don ' t know how much you know but I can ' t afford to risk letting you spoil every- thin. " He was smiling oddly. Then a cold fear grabbed me. He was reaching to his side and I saw the flash of a knife. It was a dark little room and I could hardly breathe. There was a stinging pain in my side and I was only barely conscious that they had left me alone. To die, I was sure of that. I had vaguely heard them say that they wouldn ' t have to return to finish off the job. I could remember other little bits of their conversation.. ..what I now knew was double what I had even guessed at be- fore. Living in that village, you seem to get the storm wind in your blood: the sea becomes a great, restless part of your life. These people lived for smuggling and now nothing and no one was going to stop them as it had before. Willow had loved or rather, idolised Lee, even when he had accidently betrayed the smugglers by an unfortunate slip of the tongue. He had paid for it, too, because the villagers had discovered who had betrayed them and had killed him silently one night soon after the fray. And no one had thought of Willow, with her child ' s adoration of her brogher ' s good looking friend. No one had seen her watch and cry as they gave her idol a sea- burial. No one thought that she had retained from that day her child ' s mind, which had planned revenge, and her own end, to be an " Acciden t " on the night when a ship was coming in. She had known that all Lee ' s kill- ers would be on that ship and though she had no cour- age to plan direct mur....no, I wouldn ' t say it. Anyway, no one would ever think otherwise than that she had walked too far out on the rocks on a stormy night when a smuggling ship was coming in. Let it rest at that. Her adoration of Lee was childish and that of an unbalanced mind, but there was also the fact that she had lost a brother to the smugglers, as well Somehow I did survive that night and was taken in and cared for by someone of whom I was scarcely aware and am now quite well. I have never gone back. I know they are still smuggling, though, and 1 know that there will never be any more soldiers at Storm Wind. And I am sure, though I have never gone back, that the lighthouse has long been at the bottom of the sea. This Man Ode to the Crack above my Bed This man who walks alone, Who never once has felt, The compassion of a human being. For only darkness lurks within. This darkness is everlasting, This man who walks with fear and hate, Never joy did once he taste. A mistiy cloud hangs o ' er his head. His heart is but a stone. His boundaries are himself, This man who walks alone His friends are none, But fiery hell and hate. He swims an icy pool. This man who walks alone in darkness. Is but an uninformed fool. Leslie Halliday 4B COMO ME GUST A PASAR MI TIEMPO TIB RE Vivo en una finca y cuando tengo tiempo libre me gusta pasarlo al aire libre. Doy paseos por los campos y los losques. Me siento cerca de los estanques pequenos, leyendo librps de poemas. De vez en cuando, tomo fotografias de los animales o tomo flores a mi casa para examinarlas. Sobretodo, me gusta montar a caballo. Tengo un lindo caballo que se llama Capitan. Es muy grande y es todo negro menos los pies. Capitan es muy altiro y fuerte y tiene mucho ardor. Cuando quiero montarlo debo ir a la caballeriza y acepillarlo. Entonces, pongo la silla en su espalda, me sulo y tomo los frenos en las manos. Juntos, Capitan y yocorremos por los campos y saltamos las canchas. Si Capitan tiene mucho sudor, marchamor o trotamos de vez en cuando. Mi caballo es muy manso pero, a la vez, tiene mucho espiritu y cuando ve otro caballo va un nino pequeno se hace agitado. Generalmente despues de casi tres horas de correr, Capitan y yo nos cansomos de montar y volvemos a la caballeriza. Pues yo loacepillo otra vez y le doy agua, avena, y un poco de azucar. Asi se puede ver que me gusta mucho montar a caballo en mi tiempo libre, Cuando llueve o niera y debeo quedarme en la casa para pasar mi tiempo libre, loco el piano, leo los libros o revistas y eschucho la radio. Tambien hago mis ejercicios o guisa la comida con mis madre. Pero cuando hago esto, nadie come. De todos medos no tengo mucho tiempo libre porque hay siempre algo de hacer en este mundo preocupado, Pero .cuando tengo tiempo libre es una cosa especial y me gusta mas y lo admiro y alabo mas tambien.

Susan Burgess 5A 53 Celebrates birthday Helen Keller Helen Keller 85 enjoys quiet life By Angelo Natale Associated Press staff writer EASTON, Conn. - Helen Keller, who is enjoying a quiet and gentle life celebrated her 85th birthday yesterday. She has her flowers, her garden, her dog Tinker, and the birds. " All of the birds are her friends, " says a close companionof the blind and deaf author. " Miss Helen is living in retirement, " a friend says. " That covers it. " The world still beats a path to her country home at Arcan Ridge, only to find the doors politely, but firmly, shut. But close friends and neighbors stop in occasionally for tea, and there was cake and champagne when she observed her birthday at home. Miss Keller ' s travelling days are just about over. She still receives awards, but doesn ' t make the trips to pick them up. Requests come from throughout the world to the American Foundation for the Blind for visits with Miss Keller, whohas devoted most of her life to helping the handicapped. The requests are turned down. A friend says Miss Keller is in the best of health for a woman of 85, although her vitality is waning. In the last two or three years she has given up most of her writing and all public speaking. She takes frequent rests, and devotes much of her time to read- ing and re-reading books she enjoyed in her youth. A nurse occasionally joins the regular household staff, all of whom can communicate with Miss Keller through the manual alphabet, spelled in the hand, or through the vibration method, a system which Miss Keller helped develop. An illness 19 months after Miss Keller ' s birth in Tuscumbia, Ala., left ' her blind and deaf, Throught the efforts of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, Miss Keller was transported from a world of silence and dark rage to one of communication and faith. She became a symbol of courage to millions. She once expressed her philosophy this way: " The more we try to help each other and make life brighter, the happier we shall be.

Dear Old Girl, For many years now the Old Girls ' Association has been dormant. However, during these last two years it has been re-established and the work of bringing in new members and finding the previous members goes on. Slowly but surely this integral and important part of Elmwood life is getting back on its feet. However, we need the help of all Old Girls to make our efforts completely successful. Two luncheons have been held during the last two years, both of which were very successful. Another luncheon is planned for the fall of this year. We need to increase our membership in order to increase our activities. Once firmly established this organization can perform an important role in the daily life of Elmwood. The executive joins me in asking you to give us your co-operation. I hope we will see you at the next luncheon. Our congratulations to those who graduated this year and we hope that you will become members of the Old Girls ' Association. Again I ask for your co-operation, Yours sincerely, (Miss) Judith Ann Carter. President. ELiMWOOD OLD GIRLS ' ASSOCIATION NAME IMAIDEN NAME ADDRESS . . .
