First of alzllin 'sport's events, we had our own Field Meet and
the inter-county field meet which was held at Orangeville and
our school buses took a load of students and teachers.
Onegof the next events on the curriculum was the Initiation
which is ofcourse a "Big Day" in the lives of Grade Nine students
, School dance? and moccasin hops were held at various times
throughout the yea Q
E T The next big affair was the Commencement held shortly before
and a big success.

Like many other schools, Elora Public and High Schools have
greatly over-crowded. The Public School has two grades in one,
th the exception of Grade I. The High 5chool's Grade XII is occupying
room belonging to the Public dchool, while Grades 5, 6 and ? are in
the High School's shop. The Home Economics room is partitioned into twov
and at present holds the Grade K.
- Planning for a new school has gone on for several months. The site
has been chosen and the architect is working on the plans for a ninee
roomed high school which includes a combination gymnasium M auditorium.
The four municipalities of Elora, Nichol Township, Pilkington and Peel
Townships have been approached and permission grantedvfor the necessary
expenditure. The old High School will be taken overfthe Public school.
All these plans mean that the rosy dreams of our student body are
finally going to be achieved. A new school for E.B.H.S.L Long may it
serve this community!
New School Jaan Harris
' Finally, at long last. Elora will get a new high school. This
old school dates back before paper was available and the only remarkable
thing about it is that it is still standing. In the basement lives
several fine, healthy families of skunks, rent free and they only
fumigate the school once or twice a year. In the walls there is a truly
remarkable system of tunnels and stairs leading to the fine
old rat nests
Slme of the rats have lived here all their lives and know more french
than our best linguists and figure out algebra problems just by hearing
. . r
the chalk grinding against the antique blackboards. Anothe
feature of this school is the heating system. In winter it
the room at an even temperature not varying more than tO or
the whole day. It also serves as a p.a. system. By merely
a chair and hitting the rad as hard as possible, every body
knows that there is no teacher in that room.
' The new school will no doubt help the town as much as
in my opinion it is certainly very badly needed.

stepped into the bus at seven fifteen in the morning, It was a
day with the big sun glowing through the windowsg
While the main purpose of the trip was to see the museum, we stopped
first of all at the Parliament Buildings, To our disappointment the
buildings were closed. However, we got a big kick out of just seeing
Our chartered bus chugged through the heavy traffic until she finally
pulled up to the museum, Inside we all trotted, eager to explore the
huge unknown building, I could not begin to describe everything we saw
Perhaps the most interesting thing was the aminerology section where there
were diamonds, rubies, pearls, opals and jewels of all shapes and sizes,
There was a crystal cave - the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,
They were heavenly pink and fit Zhr the bed of a king, We saw methods
and means of erosion and conservation in one room, while in another we
saw hugs skeletons of dinosaurs and pre-historic creatures. The Chinese
tomb was queeriasd the collection of old dresses was very interesting,
By noon everyone was simply famished and after lunch we crowded into
the bus and drove to the zoo, We stayed for about an hour looking at
buffalo, kangaroo, birds of all kinds, brave and majestic looking lions
and tigers and last, but not least, several squealing monkeys,
Leaving the zoo, we headed for Casa Loma where we were led on a
guided tour through the buildings. It was simply beautiful. It was
built by Sir Henry Pelatt during the First World War. The panelling in
each room was exquisitely done. There was a wedding there so we could
not see all the rooms. We trudged through a long tunnel to see the
carriage room and the stables. We also went up some twisting, winding
wire steps to an Observation Tower where we looked out over the city,

It was a cool pleasant morning when we left at seven A.M. The
looked very nice at that time of morning with the dew on the
few hours before dinner.
We arrived at the museum, a
thing I saw was the Indian display which looked very

were extremely pretty. There were many other things we saw in the
such as the very well built miniature boats which were in the
display. An Indian totem pole was very huge and reached to

top of the building. A very gruesome sp y
and the shunken heads. The prettiest display was the rock garden
a huge globe near by. These were just some of the more interesting
things we saw. i
