SAMARA 1974-75 SUCCESS IS NAUGHT: ENDEAVOURS ALL " - Browning HEADMISTRESS ' LETTER As the Chairman of the Board of Governors said at " Closing " , Elmwood is now sixty years old. The school has seen many changes, inside and outside. What stories the bricks and plaster coiald tell! Now the events of this year will become part of the whole. To the graduates of this year I say - you in turn have left your mark. To Barbara and the Prefects - thank you for jobs well done! To those who will be back next year, students and staff, - to you the future. In closing, my good wishes to all who are leaving us, and in particular to Mrs. Inns. We hope she will be back to tell us all about life " down East " . Mrs. Whitwill Barbara Coyne, Mrs. Whitwill, Mrs. Aldous, Monica Stinson. 2 SAMARA COMMITTEE Andrea Lawrence, Raine Phythian, Ranjy Basu, Ann Hierlihy, Felicity Smith, Joanne Wilson. Dear Readers, It is hard to believe this year has passed so quickly. It seems like only yesterday I was shouting, " Pictures tomorrow ! . . . And don ' t forget to hand in your Form Notes! " Of course we have, as always, had to do real battle with the school to receive material for the Sam- ara but really - Elmwood just would not be Elmwood if such struggles were not necessary! But pictures are all taken now and form notes handed in as I sit here nervously awaiting the results of the work of this year ' s Samara Com- mittee. Ann Hierlihy, Andrea Lawrence, Raine Phythian, Felicity Smith, and Joanne Wilson have worked hard this year and 1 thank them for their greatly needed assistance. Special thanks must go to Debbie Williams for the countless and invaluable hours of work she put in. I have apologies to make for the lack of financial support we re- ceived - I guess I should have taken Barb ' s advice and started search- ing for advertising much earlier! However, what ' s done is done, and this year as editor has certainly been an experience. I thank you Mrs. Aldous, Mrs. Carter, and Mrs. Whitwill and of course, all those of you who supported this Samara. I sincerely hope you find that your efforts have been worthwhile. Ranjy P. S. Thank you Belch, Mme Sabourin and Mrs. Looye for pictures! 3 Karen Ttu ' ner, Cathy Guthrie, Morag Jamieson, Monica Stinson, Donna MacPhee, Barbara Coyne, Lesley MacMillan, Monique Perron. 4 THE STAFF FRONT ROW: Mrs. Inns, Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Chance, Mrs. Whitrwill, Mrs. Aldous, Mrs. Harwood Jones, Mrs. Sab- ourin.

GRADUATES BARBARA COYNE " It is my fervent hope that my whole life on this earth will ever be . . . tears and laughter. . . , tears that purify my heart and reveal to me the secret of life and its mystery . . . laughter that brings me closer to my fellow men. . . . tears with which 1 join the broken- hearted . . . laughter that symbolizes joy over my very existence. " - Kahil Gibran Barb - otherwise known as " Barbie " because she ' s such a doll - has been at Elmwood for ten years (count ' em! ). During that time, she ' s been able to observe th performance of nine Head Girls and after all that ex- perience, she just couldn ' t help doing a fantastic job this year, when her turn rolled around. The school was first awakened to her tremendous ability for handling matters last year when she was editor of the Samara; a job not just anyone can cope with. This year, she has proven herself more than capable of carrying out all her duties as well as keeping her marks right up there. She has shown herself to be fair yet firm and, inspite of her busy schedule, she has al- ways had a smile for her fellow students. Not only is Barb intelligent but she is talented as well - she ' s a regular Liberace on the piano! Barb is going to study Arts at Queens next year, and we wish her all the best. Thank you. Barb, for all that you ' ve done for us. MONICA STINSON " The past is but a thought, the present a reflection, and the future a dream. " ... Paul Twitchall Monica arrived at Elmwood ' s academy for young gentlewomen in grade 11 and totally shattered the whole system. While in her first year she made her mark (on the basketball net) and the first theory of a Dominion - was mainly because of the meat. Monica touched us all with her sincerity and humour and we shall never forget her or Al for that matter. The week- end excursions to Fitzroy Harbour created a character that will be irreplaceable. We wish Monica the best of luck at Queen ' s next year and the best in the future. Last year she was our rambunctious sports captain. This year Monica was senior prefect which made the bumps a little softer to take. We don ' t know what Monica ' s future will be but from the referee on Grand Prix wrestling to a first class business woman, she will make the best of it. Thank-you for you, Monica. KAREN TURNER - " It ' s a poor fellow who can ' t take his pleasure with- out asking other people ' s permission. " - Herman Hesse Karen has been at Elmwood for four years now. Even though she ' s quiet and unassuming, she never goes unnoticed - (especially when, unexpectedly, her voice ' booms ' out over the din in the gym! ! ) For everyone, at any time, Karen has a smile and is al- ways ready to listen and sort out any problems if she can. She has been a valuable member of 6U this year, and as Head of Fry and a prefect she has been diligent, successful, and what is more important, respected. Certainly as you go to university next year Karen, but always in the future, we hope you ' ll find both success and happiness ! ! MONIQUE PERRON Monique made her debut at Elmwood in grade twelve. At first, she seemed like a quiet, shy and mild man- nered girl, but we soon discovered that Monique had a lot of good ideas and opinions on class matters as well as other issues. Monique quickly rose to fame in grade twelve. She was our student ' s council representative as well as our form captain for awhile. This year, she is one of our lovable prefects and head of the well-noted Nightin- gale House. Monique hopes to make it in sciences at some time in her life - the sooner the better. Well Monique, good luck in sciences next year. Your warm smile and leadership qualities will be remembered here. 9 CATHY GUTHRIE Cathie first graced the halls of Elmwood five years ago. From the leader of the three musketeers to a leading light in the prefect ranks, Cathie ' s sincerity and sense of humour smoothed over many a hairy situ- ation ... or created one ! ! One of her ambitions is to have a family of ten children, where her excep- tional math ability will come in handy! Does 2+2 make 5 or 6? Good luck, enjoy Ottawa U. , there is no limit Cathie ! 10 LESLEY MacMILLAN Lesley came to Elmwood five years ago and in her younger days her name seldom came up when class pranks were discovered. No one ever uncovered the great master mind. As Keller House Head, Lesley showed that she certainly knew how to keep a firm hand on her chatty! ! Grade Nines and when Elmwood activities were over " Lamb-Boat " would find her way to Ashbury. Memories of Austria and Spain - knicker socks, Austrian hats, flamenco dance lessons - Lesley will remember and so will those who accompanied her. Best wishes, may your year at Ottawa University go well. MORAG JAMIESON " Do not dwell on past memories or the ones to come will be forgotten. " Morag quietly - or not so quietly - slipped into our Elmwood Grade 12. In one year she made such a mark that she was elected prefect and a good one at that. She could be gentle and friendly but firm when she had to be. Morag and her bag pipes, Morag and her blushes, millions of shades of pink which finally turned a deep glowing red, Morag and her sudden deep chuckle, we wouldn ' t sell her for all the pesos in Spain. Good luck at Ottawa University, we ' ll miss you. DONNA MacPHEE Since Donna alias ' Ralph ' came to Elmwood in Grade 8, her ability to find unique situations has amazed us all. There has never been a dull moment - have YOU ever locked yourself in your locker and for- gotten the combination or roller skated to class? As a prefect. Donna knew all the schemes the juniors were concocting, having previously invented them all herself. With her ' long hair ' , sparkling white teeth and cheerful personality, she was often seen ferrying the Grade 13 ' s in a van which, by year ' s end, was a Rock- cliffe landmark. Best of luck, Donna. ROSALIND CHU " Our wisdom comes from our experience and our ex- perience comes from our foolishness. " This is Ros ' s second year in Canada. She is staying with her brother in an apartment. She is helpful and cheerful. She seems to enjoy very much of her life in Canada. Rosalind is friendly and she is also a very good cook. She is very quiet and attentive in class. She intends to take up commerce in University and be a chartered accountant as a profession. JULIA CLUBB " Time, what is time, when one is in a state of sus- pended joy, " - a Glebe Student Julia, the five-foot-nothing blond bombshell, will be remembered for her endless supply of energy, her ability to write English essays in Economics, and her baggy tights. Her ringing voice will echo in the halls of Elmwood for dusty ages to come. Six years of Elm- wood has taken its toll on Julia C. She can be seen enthusiastically volunteering her services to help or- ganize bake sales, dances, and numerous fund-raising ventures that Elmwood periodically attempts, and which the rest of us equally enthusiastically only think about. Cruising the streets of Rockcliffe in her blue Firebird and serenading the lovelies of Ashbxary is one of her many pastimes. Her one ambition in life was to be a famous basketball player but she found playing in ele- vator running shoes too difficult and even when wearing them she came three feet short of the mark. However, we all love our country bumpkin and we all promise to dance at her wedding on May 2! ! SUSANNA HEUNG A shy and quiet girl who has joined us this year, Su- sanna came from Hong Kong. The moment we saw her in the classroom at the beginning of the year we thought she was a girl who came into the wrong classroom for the fact that she is so young to be in grade 13. Despite her being tiny, she is excellent in her mathematics courses. The nice little girl who had never seen snow ever in her life enjoyed the winter here so much she would like to continue her study here. Susanna wishes to be an architect and marry a civil engineer. With all her intelligence and luck, we wish her the best in the following years di;iring her study in Canada. 13 DANIELLE FONTAINE " J ' ai dit a la vie: " Tu es mechante. " L ' echo m ' a re- pondu: " Chante. " Danielle, a tall slim French girl from la Belle Prov- ince, arrived at Elmwood last fall. Barely speaking English at the beginning of the year, she did manage to surprise everyone by being top in nearly all her classes. Her favourite pastime during school hours is to chal- lenge Mrs. Birch-Jones in the math classes which would be terribly, terribly silent without her. About four times a day we can see Danielle walking up and down Springfield Road, since she lives only | a mile from Elmwood. Sometimes she is lucky enough to get a ride with Janice to the stop sign. Danielle will probably be remembered forever by all grade 13 ' s and the rest of the school. RITA LAI Among the newcomers , Rita is tfie most outstanding and most unusual in our class. She has a very good brain for mathematics and science, and one of her ambitions is to be a doctor. She is always willing to give others a helping hand in any way she can. And besides being an extremely intelligent girl in class, she is also very good at sports, especially volleyball. When she goes back to Hong Kong this summer she says she is going to devote all her time to playing this game. Good Luck Rita ! CHERRY KAM Although this is Cherry ' s first year at Elmwood she adapted to Canadian life rapidly. Being a new girl at Elmwood, Cherry was at first very shy to join in all the 13 ' s crazy activities but she quickly fitted in. Actually, she is quite a girl and she works very hard at school, but sometimes Cherry will easily get excited over everything. But, anyway, it is her character. Cherry plans to study commerce next year, so she will stay in Canada for awhile. We hope that she will never forget all her friends in grade 13. Good luck, Cherry! JENNIFER MILES What can you say about a girl who in the winter months wears sheer pantyhose, shows up for classics when she doesn ' t take the subject, and knows more than the students who do? Jennifer has been at Elmwood for seven years. She came in grade four and left in grade five but came back because she couldn ' t live without Elmwood, She is the only girl that we know who can spend the whole night out on the town, come into school the next day, and pull off great marks in whatever test she writes. In this last year of Elmwood she has become attached to Tee Bay cafeteria, why, we don ' t know, but then with Jennifer it probably has to do with a man. Anyway, best of luck! WINNIE NG - " A person who talks about their inferiors hasn ' t any. " Winnie is a sweet and cheerful girl from Hong Kong. During the long winter she fell down several times be- cause of the ice on the road. Therefore she is longing for spring to come. Although this is her first year in Canada, she has visited quite a number of places. During the summer holiday, she will be going to Venezuela to meet her father. Have a nice time, Winnie! - " Resisting temptation is merely a matter of putting it off until nobody is looking. " Leslie has been walking through the halls of Elmwood since grade eight and this year she is the only girl in grade 13 to have the distinguishing mark of a dark tan in the middle of April besides Donna (some people get all the breaks). Leslie likes to have a good time and has been seen on several occasions riding around in a blue convertible. She ' s also been on numerous class ex cursions over the years. Remember the cruise, Spain, Quebec City? Leslie also likes to stay clean and spends lots of time in the tub, mind you, she doesn ' t always have a great time. This year she was on the Formal Committee and did a great job. Often she could be seen busily working on invitations. Next year Leslie plans to go to university. Good luck Leslie, at university and wherever else you go! LAURA PUN Laura is one of our newcomers from Hong Kong. She is a boarder with the Babbitts and is enjoying herself. She is also doing fairly well in her academic studies. Laura is always helpful and cheerful in class. She plans to take science in the university. Let ' s all wish her best of luck. Laura is a good companion because she can play Michigan Rummy with you all day. She knows all kinds of gambling and she told us that she is going to gamble with her brother in England during this coming summer. So again wish her good luck! ! JANIS ROBERTSON Janis invaded Elmwood in Grade 5 and has been leaving her mark on the school ever since. A skier and an athlete, Elmwood ' s ' Blonde Bombshell ' would always take time to lend a sympathetic ear and offer advice worth hearing. Good luck at Algonquin next year, Janis - but a word to you all, don ' t look for her there - Janis will be out on the slopes. GILLIAN TROOP This is Gillian ' s one and only year at Elmwood but in that time she has managed to join the ranks and be- friend us all. Gillian could easily be found in the midst of some gala occasion at the Party palace by the evi- dence of her notorious blue monster. Ms. Troupe ' s hy- sterical howls of laughter, well maybe her cackles, often induced the rest of the class to join her, ignorant of the joke, and knowing Gill ' s corny stories, ignorance is bliss. Gillian, we wish you success, happiness, and a husband if you change your mind. See you in the Bay SARA TYNAN-BYRD The reverend sister Sara has been with us since grade 12. Her cheerful cry of " Sorry I ' m late, my baby broke down! " marked almost every morning as " my baby " rested in the students ' parking lot. Sarah has demonstrated every principle of Christian charity, - her crusading drives to the renowned Chateau Barb- eque have saved many students from perishing, 1 for one will never forget that momentous occasion when Sarah participated in prayers as she stood transfixed in front of the school, her head bowed in prayer, only those in close proximity heard her utter those famous words " Do you think we ' ll ever make it to Broadway? " Mrs. Whitwill did not think Tynan Byrd would make it at least as proved by her performance. Speaking of per- formances, we will never forget her graceful appear- ance attired scimpily in a bikini. As star of stage and screen and chapel Sarah is sure to succeed in anything she puts her mind to. Goodbye Sarah. We will pray for you. DEBBIE WILLIAMS " Nil sine magna labore vita dedit mortalibus. " - Horace Debbie is Elmwood ' s Da Vinci. Unlike most of us who use our energies towards the development of our vocal chords (ha! ), Debbie uses her energy in her fingers and can draw an in-depth masterpiece in min- utes. She came here in grade nine - a great way to start an exciting high school life - and has graced the school with her presence ever since. Debbie is often seen and not heard, and every now and then she bes- tows us with pearls of wisdom or the odd witty com- ment. She has been known to play her harmonica in the common-room while we were trying valiantly to finish an essay which was due the previous day. Small but agile, Debbie had at one time the longest hair in town. She plans to go into science although we all wonder what such a great artist would be doing there. Oh well. Some of us are more talented than others. Good luck, Debbie! If we hear a harmonica in the dis- tance, we ' ll know who to look for . . . 18 LYNN CHELLINGWORTH Lynne joined us at Christmas and has been a welcome addition. Her cheery salutations and sly replies . . . wink, wink, nod, nod ... no need to say more con- cerning her well-known or at least thoroughly discussed boyfriend Larry, punctuated every day of school. Lynne ' s bright eyes grinning guiltily in class has plunged most of us into the depths of a scolding from the teacher due to some secret, probably a dirty joke. We all wish Lynne every happiness and hope to see her again soon. 19 NANCY YEUNG Nancy joined us in 1973 - a quiet, friendly person from Hong Kong. Academically on the science side, she struggled to overcome the intricacies of the Eng- lish language and always with a smile! We wish Nancy a very happy career at university and every success in her chosen career. CLASSES 22 FORM NOTES REMEMBER . . .

Red sky in ths morning People, this is a WARNING! " HOLLY DOWDEN: A new member this year, she has adjusted well to our class. With her low sexy voice she has no problem making herself heard. SUSAN HOOSE: Sue ' s nails have grown quite a bit this year, for she has taken time off in class to care for them. Sue ' s " Bill " has been a member of our class for some time now, even though he hasn ' t actually been here. KELTIE JOHNSTON Twinkle twinkle " Spanish class " No comprendo las Maestras! Twinkle twinkle love-a-duck! Who ' s that who takes care of tuck! Twinkle twinkle little heart Who ' s that with fantastic art? TINA KEALEY and her horses are one of a kind. Although she spends a lot of time with her horses, she also manages to make time for her other friend, Rob. Good luck! ANNE-NLARIE LaTRA VERSE: New this year, she was very anxious to achieve an 80% or over in all her marks and to become Head Girl. Now that disillusionment has set upon her, she has decided to just settle for becoming trilingual. ANDREA LAWRENCE has a habit of showing a certain disorganization every once in awhile. She has a knack for cheering people up, even on the dullest of days. She al- ways seems to be smiling - even on Monday mornings! HELEN LESLIE, our fantastic mathematician, only failed grade 9 math three times (which is better than most of us). Helen ' s hair is our everchanging weather vane. JANE MARTIN has endured five long years in oxir wonderful home. She has eaten with us, and slept in class along with everyone else. Jane ' s favorite place is the thin crowded bench outside Mrs. Whitwill ' s office! JUDY MARTIN has been doing some streaking this year much to the horror of Elm- wood (is it true blonds have more fun?). After six years here Judy has started her sev- enth . . . " It ' s a long road to freedom ... " KAREN McNULTY: Famous Person: Rapunzal, because of her long yellow hair. Des- tination: Rapunzal belongs in Russia, as long as there is lots of gin there. LYNNE MUNDY: Beware of Lynne when she hasn ' t had her sleep. KEEP SMILING! And the world will smile back. SUSAN REID isn ' t as fast this year as she has been in the past. We ' ve been beating her to classes. It must be all that tuck. We wish her luck next year! JUDY YOUNG is the tiniest of the class. She likes diet lunches almost as much as she likes liver. She doesn ' t know if she ' s coming back next year but if she does, may the Lord help Elmwood ! 25 1. Damsel in distress. - Karen Molson 2.

Dear Fry, In this past year I hope that I have lived up to your expectations as a househead, as well as you have lived up to mine. You were all vary supportive throughout the year and I believe that wa worked well together. Unfortunately, some of the projects we planned fell through however, we successfully completed a number of activ ities and man- aged to raise $109. 36 which will be divided among several of the school committees. If you are as selective next year in choosing the senior and junior vice-heads and sports captains you will be guaranteed a most successful year. Good luck to all of you. Be good to Sue.

Dear Keller, This year has, I believe, been a good year for all " Kellerites " . Perhaps we did not raise as much ...oney as did the other houses but we did raise the quota set for each house. In the athletic field we showed up very well. Our spirit was high and we played well in all the games - we even won the Softball championship! Most important of all however was that, even when the going was rough, I feel we showed " Fair Play " . All that we have achieved this year is, of course, because of you so ... 1 thank you all especially S?ra, Ann Pushman, Julie, and Sandy. This year could not have happened without you. Keep it up, and best of luck to you all!

Dear Nightingale, This year has passed very quickly and I find myself surprised at having to write this last letter to you. This year our activities were plenty. New dimensions were added to our money-raising plans this year what with a raffle, and doughnut sales. A little more support would, of course, have been appreciated, however, generally, I was very pleased with all your contributions and efforts. I believe we found the real way to an Elmwood girl ' s pocket - through her stomach! I wish to extend to you all a heartfelt thank you for I realize that you were the key to ova: success this year. Janis, Keltic, Sarah, and Kathy Fraser were solid support through this year and I hope that Virginia, too, will find this kind of aid next year. Good luck Virginia, and good luck to you all!

The Sui Sang Committee ho.a had to work hard, this year, to raise the money required to support our foster children. Through the year we held rather meagre bake-sales (I say meagre because lack of sup port was evident). However, even these bake-sales raised quite a sum of money as food prices were higher (inflation of course ! ) and food lovers ever present. We also had " Dress-up " days but the main money-raising activity this year was the raffle held in the first term. My thanks to everyone who bought and sold tickets. The car wash which was to be never was because of cancellation due to weather conditions. That was an unfortunate twist of luck. 1 would like to thank the members of the committee who provided such solid support - Barbara Clark, Rosemary Nesbitt, and Alex Wil son. Their help was invaluable. I would also like to extend a specia thanks to Mrs. Carter who provided me with sound monetory advice and general assistance. Of course, a big " Thank you very much " to all ot you who supported our activities. Needless to say, without yoi we couldn ' t possibly have raised enough money for the children! Next year, though, I truly hope you support Sui Sang even more. Please, when you are asked to write a letter - WRITE ONE! This year some classes treated letters like poison. Now, take it from me: one letter will not kill you - it may drain your brain a little (after all, letters require tremendous concentration) but that ' s all. As they say on one of the commercials, " I know, I have to know. " Anyway, one last thanks to those who did write. The children en- joyed them I ' m sure. And, to next year ' s committee I say - good luck! Maybe that carwash . . . Love, Wendy Dance Committee When we started out this year as members of the soon- to-be hated Dance committee we knew almost nothing about arranging entertainment for the sophisticated Elm- wood Ashbury set. Now . . . you name it, we know it. - including how to make enough money to cover the high cost of groups by having a few disc jockey dances (com- pliments of C, F. G, O. ). Well, you won ' t believe it, but we actually made it financially (with some help from the school) burnt rug, miscalculations, total incompetence and all with $5. 00 to spare ! Much as we harped and harped about the lack of support, we did feel that the attendance ranged from fair to excel- lent. So thanks to all of you who came to the dances, and especially to those who commented non-disparagingly later. A huge, bald-on-paper thank-you to Judi Young and Patrice Stinson whose help was very much appreciated. And thank you also those who helped us with the boring as well as more interesting ones. A final hint to next year ' s Dance Committee: If at first you don ' t succeed - PUSH! ! (It worked wonders - 5 of them in fact).

We started off early in the year with the Forums, where the committees kept the school up to date with their activities. The Student ' s Council also got off to a start quickly and this year Grade 6 was allowed representation. The first of many successful senior dances was held on Oct. 5, 1975 at Ashbury, In addition to these there have been two junior dances (one at Elmwood and one at Ash- bury). They even had a Disc-Jockey for the second one. The formal, organized by Julia Clubb and Leslie Ogilvie turned out to be a most enjoyable evening as well. Their Hunt Club worked out well and the food and entertainment were great. Unfortunately, the football with Ashbury that proved so much fun last year did not get off the ground this year. There was little support from either school . . . Maybe next year . . . The Cafe 5A in October was a great success and it started a chain of bake -sales and the such that are, I am sure, the cause of the ' few ' extra pounds you might have acquired. Hallowe ' en did not pass by unnoticed this year. The prefects were given three large pumpkins which they hollowed out, and which the junior houses then proceeded to de- sign, cut, and decorate. Nightingale won this contest, but each pumpkin was an art- istic masterpiece. In November, the Juniors were again involved in an extra activity. Divided up into groups, the girls went on a Scavenger Hunt and, after an hour ' s search for the ridicu- lous items that were required (including a label off a can of Niblett ' s Corn), returned for a party. Again this year four members of Grade 12 made an admirable showing in " Reach for the Top " . A highlight of the year was the defeat of the Ashbury team by the Elmwood team. Yay! At Christmas this year, we did something a little different. Instead of having a big turkey lunch, we donated the money that would have gone towards paying for food to CARE, A $200 cheque was presented to the CARE representative on the last day of term and I hope it was with satisfaction that we realized how many people would not be going hungry as a result. Spirit Week filled up the entire four days of Feb. 11 - Feb. 14 inclusive, and I hope everyone will agree with me when I say that the planning and preparation for it was well worthwhile. The following is a summary of the events: Feb. 3 - Prayers by Gr. 8 Feb. 4 - " r, I, 7 Feb. 5 - " " " 6 Feb. 6 - " " " 5 - Snow Princess Contest (Jr. ' s only) the winner was: Ann Marker (Gr. 7) Feb, 7 - Prayers by Preps Snow Queen Contest (Sr. ' s) 48 the winner was: Dele Afolabi (gr. 10) Feb. 11 - Gr, 9 prayers House Sticky Tape Race Sr. girls vs. Sr. staff - Volleyball won by: Sr. girls Sr. Volleyball vs. Ashbury (we won one! ) Skating on Canal (night) Feb. 12 - Gr. 10 prayers House Tug- ' O- Wars Lunch in gym (Jr. and Sr. schools together) Toboganning in Park Back to Elmwood for hot chocolate and Bake Sale put on by Formal Committee. Feb. 13 - Gr. 11 prayers Dress-up Day Breaking of pinatas (one to each house) in gym Feb. 14 - Gr. 12 prayers Greaser Day (Preps, 5 and 6 - Special Dress Day) L ' tensil lunch Preps, 5 and - to Arts Centre for " Pinnochio " Gr. 7 and 8 - Volleyball vs. Ashbury Talent Show Greaser Dance at Elmwood There was also the all important Ms. Universe Contest in which each Form Mistress paraded in the native dress of the country she represented. I ' m putting this in at the end because I ' m so brilliant I forgot when exactly it took place. Anyway, the win- ners were: Mrs. Harwood Jones, Hawaii; and Mrs. MacDonald, Egyptian Mummy. Unfortunately this year we were unable to stage a Gilbert C Sullivan production. However, the Theatre Arts group did put on a most enjoyable play at Ashbury. It was a story involving the legendary Indian protector Glaoscap. The costumes and sound ef- fects, in addition to the acting, all contributed to making the production a great suc- cess. As well as this play, there were a couple of musical recitals involving both seniors and juniors, singing and playing the piano. Several of the younger members of the school read poetry too, which made for very pleasant interludes. The revivial of Elmwood on Avon this May was interesting to say the least. Each class in the senior school (with the exception of grade 13) put a great deal of effort into their play which showed clearly in the very entertaining performances: Gr. 12-2 scenes from " The Crucible " by Aurthur Miller Gr. 11 - a few scenes from " Teahouse of the August Moon " by Gr. 10 - an adaptation of a short story by Ray Bradbury " The Jar " 49 Gr. 9 - two famous scenes from Julius Caesar " by William Shakespeare An air of the ' real thing ' was present in the dramatic opening of the " envelope " ' and the presentation of the Elmwood on Avon awards! ! (Which, by the way, were all swept away by Gr. 12 in there production of " The Crucible " , Sports Day was, as usual, a lot of fun and a fitting end to the activities of the year. Almost everyone participated - even if only in the sack or wheelbarrow races - and the foreign dances performed by the various grades were, as always, spirited! In all, this year has been exciting and I thank all those that made the events and ac- tivities successful. I am sure, I have not mentioned all that occurred during the year but 1 hope that your memories will make up for my forgetfulness. Best of luck to everyone !

In May, they all, along with Mrs. Chance, trooped up to city hall hoping to see Prince Charles and maybe to even meet him . . . Here is a note found in the Grade 9 classroom found prior to this " rendez-vous " . The names have been changed and if they now match the names of any member of the Grade 9 class it is purely coincidental. c re yoo t xc t ol I ?, cx rrv y cc r uJcnUGi 7 V CKt d fd C rok v n ' tc ' ' fifno , njcfijo (jttc stuj rufi 55 This year, the Junior school was involved in a number of activities, especially of the musical variety, " A Musical Afternoon " , under the dir- ection of Mrs. Poon, involving both juniors and seniors, was held in the second term. It proved a delightful afternoon as the youngest of the school to the oldest gave performances showing they ' re musical ability. Some of the Junior girls also read poetry that either they themselves, or another member of their class had written. It was excellent - there are some budding writers in the junior school, believe me! The Senior Choir sang some ex- cerpts from the " Mikado " along with lovely solos from some of the mem- bers, and then moved on to a beautiful rendition of " Pass It On " , The highlight of the afternoon was the well played duet by Mrs. Harwood Jones and Mrs. Poon. During intermission, guests and artists flocked to the dining room soon to be seen holding, about to pop in their mouths, or chewing some kind of candy from Fry ' s candy-sale. After all the performances were over, more refreshments were provided by the school and people could be seen biting into cookies with looks of satisfaction in an afternoon well spent settled on their faces. Mrs. Poon ' s efforts did not stop there, however. She organized yet an- other afternoon of music (on school time this time) for the junior school. Parents were invited to see their ' s and other children perform. With the Musical Afternoon already added to their list of credits, Mrs. Poon and the juniors attracted a large crowd. Seniors walking near the vicinity of the gym (between classes only, of course! ) would feel their curiosity aroused at the sound of delicate tinkles on the piano and thunderous ap- plaud afterward. They would eye the gym door longingly as they walked on . . . towards their classes. Boy, they sure missed something. The Juniors played very well and the electricity of their excitement soon caught on amongst their audience making the afternoon a total success. Congratu- lations to you Mrs. Poon and to all the juniors who performed! However, music was not the only fuel for activity. The wish to travel took these juniors off for a weekend in May to Toronto! So, while seniors struggled away at their studies with their noses firmly imbedded into books (school books, I think . . . ), the juniors were romping aroimd, laughing with the wind and generally just having a great time in Toronto! Some have all the luck! Just prior to their departure however, the juniors entertained the school with a fashion show. Girls modelled, for us all, the clothes they had been busily sewing iy. their sewing classes throughout the year, Mrs. Aldous must have been proud of her students for the clothes looked very nice indeed. Some girls had sewn more than one article of clothing (Christine Humphreys comes to mind), which are also modelled. Seniors watched on, admiring and, many of them, envious of the sewing skill of the junior girls. It seems this year has been packed with activities what with trips to Tor- onto, Hallowe ' en parties, dances, musical afternoons, trips to the art cen- tre to see pinochio (gr. 6 down), scavenger hunts - you name it they seem to have done it! It was a full and fun year - hope you do it again next year ! 56 LITERATURE ART THE RAINBOW The coloured rainbow high in the sky, Ribbons of creamy colours, flowing together, merging, pushing into each other, splashing the sky with colours. First fresh red, like bursting cherries. Smooth, juicy, tingling with flavoior. Then creamy smooth whitish, pink, like a sweater hugging you softly, lullingly soft. Then turquoise, hard, like the open sea, stretching far, far out to other lands. Then the creamy white colour, making you think of cool, tingling milk, smooth, refreshing, as it trickles down your throat. Then exotic, exciting, flashy yellow filling the sky with delight. Then exalting, orange, - eager, running, spreading into eternity. Last pacifyingly soft pink, merciful, girlish. This outlined with soft, flowing, satin soft, singing, blue. Then it all fades away, then there is not even a faint trace of that beautiful sight. The delight and wonder of the sky.

Spring gives me a warm, happy feeling. May is laughing across the sky. Laughing while trees reach out. Grass is greening. May gives me a feeling of freedom, It makes me feel like bursting out laughing. Spring is a time to look forward to, and remember. Roberta Shmelzer Grade 7 59 LOOKING BACK When there is time to pause a while, time to sit and breathe after the tide has reached its peak and is slowly moving out again you can look back and remember things that other tides brought to you. When reflections on the present are sorted out, you can climb a mountain, catch your breath at the top, and you can look out at time spread below you and smile, surge, and soai. With that section of time spread before you, under a moving, still film, parts of it blend into the light, as a cloud does when you stare at it too long. But turn to see that the moment is over, the tide is coming in, and you must run before it spills over and drowns you. If you trip and fall you can only scramble up again, but then you have lost that time and must stumble on before you have caught your breath, as the water laps your running feet. Listen to the screaming gulls; they mock you. Sometimes when you put your hands over your ears when you don ' t want to hear anything it works, only you have to press hard with fists in your head until you can hear your blood. Sometimes when you do that things go away. But after hours and hoirrs you wonder if you will ever go back and yovir muscles get tired and your fists unclench and then, with a loud push on yoior heart, you hear again. Your heartbeat is loud and it hurts, and your breathing gets strong in your lungs, and you want to run, run without falling or stopping down a long hill where there is no tide pursuing you, until you can ' t run anymore. Your breath is forced and pulled through a throat with bloody knives and dry sand, and your legs are like rubber holding you up and shaking, only there is no place to crumble into and you have to stand because there is nothing there to hold on to. You can ' t brace your feet because your legs are rubber. It takes a long time for your breathing to be normal again, but when it is, you close youi eyes and you can still feel the ground moving away from you. Now your lungs rise and fall normally. Your eyes won ' t open because you know that if you look straight into the shooting sparks of the flaring torch your eyes will be burnt out and you will be blind forever. So you keep your eyes tightly shut, because you know. But then you sense that someone is watching you, and your eyes must blink open to protect yourself. All at once the light pokes his fingers into your eyes and you fall back, shocked by how much it hurts, and your hands fly to your eyes to cover them, but still there is light and you don ' t know you were hot until the sweat runs from your forehead to your temples and your cheek, and there is no air. Then, just as you are reeling backwards, with ice gripping your heart when you think you will never reach bottom, to die and never know love. 60 there is a hand. There is hand, and another, and fingers touch your own, and grasp, and your wrist pulses and throbs as blood from another one, another world, enters you and flows warm and alive through your veins. You want to learn, and your hands reach out and your eyes implore be- cause you have no voice. And you are taught, in little ways, and then the hands are gently pushing you forward and making you stand in front. Now you can stand on your own before you know it, but the hands are still there to catch you if you fall. And you are burning up with thanks for those hands, like hot wax dripping down a candle. But the hands are gone before you can thank them, before you can hold them in your own and put back some of the love that grew up to spill out free, with something invis- ible that is running faster than you, holding your hand and pulling you ahead. You know you won ' t drown now if t e.tide comes in too quickly. When there is time to pause a while, then you can slip down and catch your breath, sinking into a warm tide pool to watch the sun came up again, Karen Molson Grade 10 Lightenin g splii ters s P i c e d The ebony of night. Judith Chance Grade 12 A small affair a passing flame enduring but in weeks ended without tears dreamt about remembered wistfully. Kathy Zimmerman Grade 12 61 I was walking down the street a few nights ago, just wandering around. I passed a small lounge I had never noticed be- fore and decided to go in. The room was smoke -filled and had a reddish glow. It was a little dark and had an odd smell that I soon became accustomed to. From what I could see, there were about fifteen tables and small groups of people at some of them talking quietly, giving small smiles occasionally to each other. There was a certain Far-Eastern mys- tique about the place. A little lamp with an Oriental design was sitting on the counter. This was the source of the red glow. Behind the counter was a small man with short hair, mixing a drink. He looked up at me with a pair of piercing blue eyes, then went back to his drink. A few Oriental rugs and pillows were scattered on the floor and the walls closest to me. The man behind the counter came over to my table carrying two drinks, gave me one, and sat down beside me. " Hi. " He returned a small smile. 1 felt as if those blue eyes were looking right down inside me. " Thanks for the drink. What ' s in it? " " A variety of things. " He said it with certain finality so 1 simply tried it. It was pretty good. I felt the warm liquid go right down to my stomach, making my whole body tingle. I soon felt a little light-headed which was odd because the drink didn ' t taste of alcohol. The man finally broke the silence. " You came just in time for the show. I think you ' ll find it . . . entertaining. " I looked around and noticed all the people were becoming quiet and a little dazed looking. The man got up and turned the lamp on the counter off. Lights came on at the other end of the room revealing a small stage. Two men came on stage, one carrying a guitar, the other a mandolin. They played a song but I don ' t really re- member what it was like - I just know I was tired. The man was beside me again, facing the duet but looking at dark- ness. My eyes were growing heavy, and eventually closed. I didn ' t think anyone would notice because it was so dark the only person I could see was the man beside me. Even he was melting away into the darkness. I was aware of the begin- ning of a new song. By this time I was drifting off into my own world, occasionally penetrated by the singer ' s voice, 1 " Oh Hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along. Heavenly song bird we were so wrong, we ' ve harmed you. Oh Hummingbird please lend us your wings. " I saw a yellow river flowing between banks of blue grass. The sky was a pale orange with cotton-like clouds drifting by. There were a few large trees with masses of gold leaves, leaning over the river. A man was lying on the grass, reading, across the river. Birds were flying and singing all around us. I sat on the grass, laughing and laughing. Suddenly all the birds flew straight up, above the clouds. The river stopped flowing and clouds disappeared. My world was becom- ing ugly, a clashing of colours. The mari across the river looked at me as 1 walked towards the river. There were fish suspended in the water. One grey-black fish with big blue eyes was staring straight at me. It was a haunting look that made me shiver. The golden leaves on the trees suddenly flew off, making a screeching noise. I was crying when a little hummingbird flew to me and stopped in front of my face, as if to talk to me. It was so innocent and beautiful, I was laughing again. " The sweetness of your Nectar has drawn me like a fly. I just love you, love you love you I don ' t even know the reason why. " Clouds were filling the sky and birds were singing in the trees. My world was becoming beautiful again. The man across the flowing yellow river started waving his arms and yelling at me. I heard a low voice on the wind, " Watch out! Watch out ! " The Hummingbird was dancing around me now. I became scared of it; I didn ' t understand its powers. I ran towards the man across the river. The Hummingbird followed, but I was screaming by that time. " Leave me alone. Please! Please! " I tried to swim across the river but the current was strong. It was pulling me along but the man came in and pulled me out. The River ' s flow had no effect upon him. I was so glad to be there with him. I was shivering but he held me close, comforting me. As I looked up to the land around me, my mouth fell open. The trees were black and barren, dead birds were lying on the ground, the sky was an ugly fluorescent orange, nothing of what I had seen across the river, I tried to run back to the river but the man held me back. He was laughing, laughing, laughing. " Humming don ' t fly away fly away. Don ' t fly away, don ' t fly away. " I was back in the red glowing room. The performers were no longer on stage and the man that had been beside me was now behind the counter. I got up to leave and realized how exhausted I was. When I got to the door, the man met me. " I ' m sorry, " he said. I tried to return the next night, and the night after that, but no matter how long I look, I just can ' t find it. Anonymous ISeals and Crofts from the song " Hummingbird ' Two Different Worlds We are of two different worlds, my father and I He lives in a world of the past, of things that I have never known. I live in the world I was brought up in A world that he can not understand. I am of his flesh and blood, but we can ' t understand. He uses his age as an excuse, he is too old to understand It seems that 1 have never known this man This man who loves me so, may be some day we will reach a common ground. Until that day, I have to try, try to live with him If for one day we could exchange worlds, if he could live in my world and I in his Our worlds would no longer be different, they would be one. But then most of my father ' s dreams would be shattered Those dreams, would also be my dreams. And our worlds would meet, on terms of misery It makes me wonder if, maybe I am the one who will not understand. Nancy Beamish 63 A teacher of great experience has left her mark on the minds of hundreds of students. Mrs. Routliffe, presently a teacher at Elmwood School, was born in Shawville, Quebec. Her family was very big, consisting of five girls and four boys, only a few of whom are alive today. As a child she went to the Shawville Academy: " there was no program for sports, and the only physical education was when you were asked, by the teach- er, to do arm stretches and leg exercises. " She grew up in a farming community where education wasn ' t compulsory. In the summer months the girls and boys were kept at home to work on the farm. I asked her what her interests in school and what she liked to do. She replied, " During the World War I I joined a club for girls where we did knitting and sew- ing for the Red Cross. After the war we stayed together as an interest group and performed plays. " Mrs. Routliffe graduated in 1923 from MacDonald College near Montreal. She received an Intermediate Diploma which enabled her to teach up in grade ten. The activities in which she became involved the french club, " Cercle Frangais " , and the Student Christian Association which organized Sunday evening programs. They sang, and later served coffee and doughnuts. At the age of fifteen she did bookkeeping, and on weekends and holidays she worked in a general store. After graduation, she taught in Aylmer. She taught girls of sixteen, only two years younger than herself. And there might have been twelve-year-olds in the same class. This depended on the position of their fathers; if they could afford to hire " hands " their children could get a proper education. A great many of the girls became teachers, and a few even became principals. In Shawville the sal- aries were poor but in Aylmer, where she taught, the salaries were better. Something which Mrs. Routliffe thought was amusing was ... an advertise- ment for a principal appeared on the school list. She applied, for other reasons than the very high salary, and was accepted! But she was advised to give up this idea until she had more experience. In 1926, Miss Chisnell, as she was then, married a young man by the name of Routliffe. They live happily and had two sons, one born in 1930 and the other in 1938. One of them is now a minister. Mrs. Routliffe likes her work very much, which is why she is still teaching now. I asked why she came to Elmwood and if she liked teaching girls better than boys. " I used to teach in mixed schools when I was younger and I really enjoyed it. After working all day, I found that it was too much for me, so 1 answered an advertisement for a Part-time teacher to teach Maths and Science. " It was in 1957 that she first came to Elmwood. " What advice do you have for the girls now going to school? " was my next question. 64 " In the present climate, the more education you have, the more choices there are. With better technology and advanced education you should leave your choices open, " Mrs. Routliffe replied. It has been my pleasure to interview her and I hope it has been yours to know of her.

Wendy Leth Steenson Grade 5 67 Lost I am almost drowned in a prison in the middle of the earth and I reached out towards a sun 1 must have imagined because it disappeared when I touched it. Once I tripped into a twisted river and spun so fast that I forgot all the reasons why I was there and someone else said she was me and I cried because I was so confused. I ' m just sitting in a corner with the curtain ' s closed scared and stupid, making mistakes taking up space wasting oxygen sinking into a fragile blue bubble with slippery walls. Karen Molsen THE EARTH WILL REMEMBER The wind rides high in the autumn trees over the dying green; Leaves crackle and fly on the shivering breeze that blows the blue sky clean. Grey clouds in the sunshine fade away like echoes that die in the hills; sparkles are tossed on the waves in the bay from the silver stream ' s bubbling rills. Alone with the earth on an autumn day, asking the sky for a song; the wind says one day I will fade away, but the earth will remember my song.

Her eyes are clouded While she tries to remember the secrets of yesterday . . . but she cannot remember. Her lips quiver slightly Her image blurs. And when I reach out to touch her She is gone. Ranjy Basu Grade 12 LOOK DOWN That night when I came home from work I sat down and wrote a story. It was about a girl who, in essence, equated her being with her feet. Inci- dents illustrated what sort of person she was and how she reacted to herself. I showed it to Anne when she arrived, and after she unloaded all her parcels. " It ' s about someone you know. I think, " was all I said to her. The last paragraph went something like this: " She stepped out of the tub, carefully placing her feet on the mat so as to make a clear impression. She wrapped a towl around her and looked in the mirror, not seeing a thing. It was too steamy. She moved off the mat and turned to what was left behind. She couldn ' t see her footprints, but then, she wasn ' t looking too hard. " Ann laughed as she handed it back. " A cute story, but I don ' t think I know her. " " No, " I replied, " I suppose you don ' t. " Shelagh Hurley Grade 12 69 WINTER AND THE SUN Warm colourful rays of simlight penetrate me Probing gently into my mind revealing memories. I remember as time goes on , . . The brilliant intensity of the sun tells me that the time is getting closer . . . nearer ... to when memories materialize into reality. When a season that has been temporarily removed will silently creep back with every new day. It will be different as it is impossible to live the past as the present or future. Who knows what will Rise of set? The sun? Who watches and smiles behind all the seasons. I don ' t know ! D o you? And after it ' s all over, once more, what will happen to my old memories? I suppose they will fade farther and farther away . . . into the depths of my complex mind, Until they disappear completely to make room for the new ones. Keltie Johnston Grade 11 IMAGINATION Your mind is twisting Around and around In your own land. No one there Soft, by yourself. Alexis Fearon Grade 5 FOR M. Sing, for we love you who wiped our stars free of poison and pitied the dogs who chewed our bones. Too weak to dream that what we saw was somewhere alive, we cut our tongues and scuffed blood on the lace window, too early to condemn, too full of doubt, A freedom was offered you, and you must have wept for it as we do now letting your tears run down our unfolding fingers, with every glazed encouragement kicking the ground away. Karen Molson Grade 10 The quiet form, laying hopefully on the bed. His breath silent and irregular. " Please don ' t die, Oh, Father please. " Quietly the world keeps on. Shadowed faces masked by fear and pain, plod gently through the halls, Crying for those lost and those who will eventually be lost. Death screams for his soul, life fights relentlessly, but must finally concede. The form, breathes in quickly, and expires his life. I weep .

Shelagh Hurley Grade 12 It ' s the end of another complete sports year that had its fair share of vic- tory and glory; defeat and frustration. The spirit in the school picks up as the activities heat up and it is a heartening thing to see. It ' s the attitude that people have towards sports that is the deciding factor as to whether or not the sports program will succeed. That ' s an important thing for all of us to remember. We started the year with inter-house basketball, and the overall winner was Fry. It was a competitive series and a job well done. Volleyball fol- lowed, both intramural (Fry won again) and with Ashbury. Elmwood didn ' t quite make a clean sweep, but with some questionable reffing by yours truly, we did win one game. We were victorious in softball against our male counterparts, with a little help from our friends. Keller was the un- disputed winner in the intramviral series. With the tennis tournament finally over Janet Holmes and Ranjy Basu emerged as the doubles winners. Sports Day was lots of fun and it ran smoothly thanks to the brilliant or- ganizing ability of Mrs. Churchill. My special thanks goes to her and thanks also to the sports captains of the Houses. The whole year was a team effort and to my successor I say: good luck, be patient, work hard; and most of all, appreciate people, Shelagh FRONT: Shelagh Hurley, School Captain. 2nd ROW: Kathy Green, Jr. Fry; Sandy Zagerman Jr. Keller; Kathy Fraser, Jr. Nightingale.

Lesley in gentle repose. 82 CLOSING 1975 Barbara Coyne - winner of Summa Summarum Monica Stinson - winner of Philpott Token VALEDICTORY ADDRESS Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Whitwill, Honoured Guests, Members of the Staff, Students and Friends of Elmwood. It seems strange that for myself and for this year ' s Grade 13, today ' s closing ceremonies are, though for some their first, for ALL of us our last at Elmwood. We have of course all been looking forward to this day, but I ' m sure tha t it has only struck us very recently that not only our days at Elmwood but ovir " high school " days have come to an end. Now the time is here when each of us must begin to adapt and use what we have learned to shape fulfilling and happy futures. To this end, I ' m sure all will agree that the experiences, good and bad, and the friendships we have made in this and other years have been important to us, and will stand us in good stead. 83 It also seems strange to be addressing a mass of pseudo-white angels rather than the usual crowd of little devils in green uniforms. But how dull it would be if they weren ' t little green devils 364 days of the year! Imagine having no water fights to clean up, no jewellery to confiscate or bright pink polish to remove! (On second thoughts it might just be heav- en). All in all I do not think this year has been without excitement. Do you Juniors remember trying to find a 1958 pen- ny? - if YOU don ' t, I ' m sure the people who frantically searched their houses for you DO! And Spirit Week - the tug o ' wars (when the rope DIDN ' T break! ), greaser day, toboganning on the hills and then returning with sopping seats to fill your faces at one of the numerous 1974 - 75 bake sales. And how about the sticky tape race, at the end of which the househeads were hoarse and deaf but nonetheless rich! For these and many other activities most of you seemed to rally and together made the hard work and organization of so many people worthwhile. It no doubt remains though that we should say " thank heavens the teachers put up with us! " On a more serious note, it has become apparent, certainly to me but also to the other prefects, how fundamental co- operation is to the harmony of a community such as ours. I am not going to recite to you the instances where a lack of co-operation has been a drawback - not only have these been few in number but they are for a responsible student ' s coun- cil and the teachers to work out between themselves. Elmwood is growing, not only in population, but with respect to the absorption of new ideas and methods. For this reason, in a community such as ours, individuals MUST join together in a common purpose, to take the best of Elmwood and strive to make it constantly better. This applies to all levels and as- pects of school life. The foundation for such co-operation lies in the mutal respect that must exist between ALL con- cerned, but particularly among the students themselves - a respect that sometimes seems to dissipate as the year advances. Wouldn ' t it also be beneficial, not only for the school as a whole but for each of you, if the ' spirit ' which flared out at times during the year was always present; so that the activities which involve the entire student body would serve only to ACCENTUATE this spirit. It is not my purpose to be negative, for I feel this year has been a good one. The thoughts I leave with you are designed only to aid the students - and even the staff - in more fully understanding the areas in which may lie the answers as to how Elmwood might continue to improve. It is impossible to mention all the persons whose help has been invaluable to me as head girl, I want of course to ex- press a special thanks to Mrs, Whitwill and Mrs, Davies, not only for their guidance but for their constant support through the year. To Monica and all the prefects I can only say that it was your steadfastness and willingness to work together that enabled this year to pass smoothly and successfully. To everyone who is leaving this year, to Wendy, her prefects and all next year ' s students, I wish the best of luck and good fortune in the year ahead.
