When in years to come we recall our days as members of| Forest District High School, it will be a fond and grateful memory. The fun we ' ve had, the friendships of STUDENTS AND! TEACHERS ALIKE, MORE THAN COMPENSATE FOR HOMEWORK AND DETEN- TIONS. Long after we ' ve forgotten Latin and Ancient History, WE ' LL REMEMBER THE CAREFREE HAPPINESS OF STUDENT LIFE, THE PATIENT GUIDANCE OF OUR TEACHERS, THE LESSONS WE ' VE LEARNED IN GETTING ALONG WITH OTHERS. When we leave Forest High, another door of life closes BEHIND US, BUT WE GO FORTH READY TO FACE LI FE WITH UNDERSTAND- ING, STRENGTH, AND WISDOM. WE CANNOT REOPEN THAT DOOR, BUT PERHAPS FROM TIME TO TIME WE MAY PEEP THROUGH THE KEYHOLE ONCE MORE, TO SEE SCHOOL LIFE THROUGH " AUREA VINCULA " , OUR " Golden link " .

At first, it SOUNDED LIKE A CHILD ' S WHISTLE BUT NOW IT BROADEN- ED INTO A TERRIFYING SHRIEK. I SHRANK BACK BEHIND A HILL OF " DRESDEN PLATE " QUILTS. At LAST THE ROAR SUBDUED AND I PEEKED OUT, WITH ONLY HELMET SHOWING, ON A CLOTHES-STRE WN BATTLEFIELD. THERE, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCENE, SAT THE CLOCK, The room was quiet. I glared at the ashamed VICTIM, WHO HAD BOTH HANDS OVER ITS FACE, ONE POINTING AT SEVEN, THE OTHER AT TWELVE. BECAUSE OF THE POSITION OF THOSE HANDS, I KNEW I MUST GET UP AND BEGIN A VERY BUSY DAY. After my usual morning routine,! glanced at my WATCH AND FOUND IT SAID EXACTLY EIGHT O ' CLOCK. ONE LOOK OUT THE FRONT WINDOW PROVED THE TINY MACHINE TO BE RIGHT. THE DREADFUL SHRIEK OF BRAKES PIERCED MY EARS. I RAN. THE BUS DRIVER SMILED AS I TUM- BLED ON, BOOKS FLYING AND TEMPER RISING. The school seemed to leap into view. It remind ED ME OF A CLOUD, ON A BRIGHT, SUNNY DAY, SHYLY SLIPPING IN FRONT OF THE SUN. This was the day our book reports were due Would English Class ever end? I glanced at my WATCH AND I WAS SURE THE HANDS WERE NOT MOVING. I BELIEVE IT WAS TRYING TO GET EVEN WITH ME FOR NOT WINDING IT YESTERDAY. I WOULD NEVER FORGET AGAIN. When the noon hour came, those hands on the post- office CLOCK SEEMED TO FLY. THE VERY NUMBERS SEEM- ED to say, " Don ' t be late. ' Don ' t be late: " School was over for the day, and I saw, in my MIND AN EXCITING EVENING IN LONDON, THE WAVE IN MY HAIR REFUSED TO LOOK Rl GHT AND I HAD MY SHOES TO SHINE. The smiling clock seemed to laugh at me, WHEN I NOTICED IT WAS SEVEN O ' CLOCK AND I DIDN’T HAVE ABIT MORE TIME. The evening was over. I crept in quietly, s ' hoes IN HAND AND FINGERS CROSSED. AS I REACHED THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, THERE SAT THE CLOCK TRY I NG TO ATTRACT Mother ' s attention. The next morning I learned the CLOCK WAS VICTORIOUS. As I WALKED INTO MY OWN ROOM, AND GLANCED AT MY OWN LITTLE CLOCK, I BEGAN TO REALIZE HOW SMALL WE REALLY ARE. TO TH I NK , A T I NY ORNAMENT WITH A MECHA- NISM, NOT AS BIG AS OUR HAND, MAKES US JUMP WHEN WE HEAR ITS RING, OUR HEART THROB WHEN WE SEE THE POSITION OF ITS HANDS. Maybe slavery has been abolished. However, we STILL HAVE A VERY STIFF MASTER, WITH A JOLLY ROUND FACE, WHO IS SUCH A VERY PERSISTANT FELLOW THAT WE NOT ICE HIM OFTEN EVE RY DAY, SO THAT WE WILL AL- WAYS BE ON TIME. (by Jean Fleming) Mr. Thiers: repeat to me the words THAT JOHN JUST WHISPERED TO YOU. Frank: I ' d rather not. They were NOT FIT WORDS TO TELL A GENTLEMEN. Mr. Thiers: Then go into the office AND TELL THEM TO Mr. STEPHENS. PARSON: OO YOU KNOW WHERE LITTLE BOYS GO WHEN THEY SMOKE? Tub Turnbull: Yep, up the alley. Mr. Trusler: John M. , conjugate the VERB " TO LAUGH " .

HE ' S UP AND DOWN EACH SNOW-CLAD TREE, And simply need still, Doing his work so cheerfully He sings his merry trill. And how this inspiration came? ' Twas mot by thought or word, On ME, I pray, don ' t lay the blame, But on this little bird. THE SACRIFICE (by LOUISE WOODS) " Why all this waste? " They asked, when she Did tenderly anoint Him with perfume. " LET HER ALONE-- She sacrificed for me, " Again we hear, " Why all this waste? Why must our boys POUR FROM LIFE ' S PITCHERS, THEIR OWN BLOOD TO SATISFY Those whose hearts are filled With greed and hate? " They sacrifice that we might live, Might keep our freedom And democracy, But we must keep our bargain, too, Must hope for, pray for, and love, Those who hate our ways and us. Then this shall not be waste. -A ? A i «:r.i ■| ni THE BUGLE BAND RECENTLY Mr. MANNING APPROACHED THE SCHOOL BOARD REGARDING THE PURCHASE OP INSTRUMENTS FOR A GIRL ' S BUGLE BAND. THE BOARD WILLINGLY CONSENTED AND SOON DRUMS AND BUGLES WERE A REALITY. GREAT ENTHUSIASM WAS SHOWN ON THE PART OF MANY GIRLS, AND THEY PRAC- TISED FAITHFULLY FROM THREE-THIRTY UNTIL FOUR EACH DAY. To Mr. Manning, instigator of the organization, TO THE INSTRUCTORS MR. EVANS, Mr. TRUSLER, AND Eric Butt, we extend our appreciation and thank THEM WHOLEHEARTEDLY. THE UNIFORMS WILL BE MADE BY THE GIRLS UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF MISS E. CRONK and Mrs. S. Evans. Bugle Section: Y. McGregor, L. Dew, E. Tremaine, A. Smith, J. meadows, S.Finan, H. Donald, j.

At the Initiation Dance, after surmounting an OBSTACLE COURSE OF PASTE, SPAGHETTI, AND EPSOM Salts, the Freshmen were welcomed to the student body of F. D. H. S. Fourth form held a backward DANCE, WITH LUNCH PRECEDING THE DANCING. THE XMAS Dance was Commercial ' s contribution, and their Xmas tree and trimmings put everyone in a holiday SPIRIT. SINCE THE HOLIDAYS WE HAVE HAD A VALENTINE DANCE SPONSORED BY GRADE XI AND A ST. PATRICK ' S DAY dance by Grade X. There are lucky prizes and always A GOOD LUNCH, BUT WE WISH MORE LOWER-SCHOOL KIDS would come. We ' re looking forward to the Cadet Dance, our big Spring Formal, and we hope it will BE THE BIGGEST SUCCESS YET.

Commencement ' 51 On January 26th, at Commencement, we wished the GRADUATES OF 1950 GOOD-BYE AND GOOD LUCK WITH TOKENS OF REMEMBRANCE FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL, AND WITH THE PRESENTATION OF DIPLOMAS AND FLOWERS. BARB ICCORMICK WAS VALEDICTORIAN FOR THE CLASS OF “50. This year we feel the Grads were honoured as they SHOULD BE AFTER COMPLETING THEIR HIGH SCHOOL CAREER. The full programme of p. T. Exercises, musical numbers, special awards, and speeches, was presented to a capacity crowd on two evenings. " The Happy Journey " of the Kirbey family, over the BUMPY ROADS OF NEW JERSEY, PROVIDED A HALF-HOUR OF light-hearted entertainment. Through their co- operation AND THEIR ABILITY, THE CAST AND THEIR Director, Miss Marion Boa, brought the eveningto a most successful close. We think you ' ll agree that our 1951 Commencement, well-organized and smoothly-run, owes its success to the teachers and students who worked together to make it MEMORABLE NIGHT FOR ALL WHO ATTENDED. mfe- FIELD DAY CHAMPIONS Allan Rinker, Ronnie Webb, Fred Rinker, Gord Ellerke: Jack Prout, Howard Hodgson, Helen Trick, Aileen Prcnr Ann Livingston. ’ ' Perk” Beaudoin iin front), Anne Fraleigh (inset).

BOTH TEAMS WERE TIED AT THE END OF THE- SCHEDULE FOR THE INTER- SCHOOL championship. The Championship game was played off in STRATHROY’S GYM. AFTER A HARD FOUGHT BATTLE FOREST LOST TO WATFORD 30 TO 27. FOREST GIRLS TRIED HARD BUT COULD NOT SEEM TO SINK ENOUGH BASKETS. THE GUARDS DID VERY WELL AS THEY HAVE IN ALL THEIR GAMES THIS YEAR. THERE WERE SEVERAL NEW- COMERS TO THE TEAM THIS YEAR WHO SHOW PROMISE OF BEING GOOD BASKETBALL PLAYERS NEXT YEAR. A WIN THIS YEAR WOULD HAVE MADE THEM INTER-SCHOOL CHAMPS FOR THE SECOND YEAR. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GIRLS ON THE TEAM WHO WERE COACHED by Miss Mary Lou Savage, girls ' P. T. Instructor. Leading scorers for the seven games were Anne Fraleigh WITH 104 POINTS, YVONNE MCGREGOR W I TH 95 POINTS, AND ANNE Livingston with 26 points. Team Members: Yvonne McGregor, Captain, Ann Fraleigh, Anne Livingston, Helen Donald, aileen Prout, Norma Sheppard, Marilyn Brandon, Audrey Sm i th, Rosemar i e Hopper, Ruth Wilson, Ruth Wilkinson, Mike Fawcett, and Lorraine Dew. SENIOR BOYS ' BASKETBALL TEAM The boys team won one game against Watford, tied one with PETROL I A AND LOST FOUR. THERE WERE ONLY NINE PLAYERS ON THE TEAM BUT THEY PLAYED EACH GAME WITH DETERMINATION TO WIN.THE TEAM WAS LED BY THE CAPTAIN, JOHN MANNING AND COACHED By ' Mr. R. L. Manning, P. T. Instructor.

Team Members: John Manning, (Captain), Douglas Sadler, Frank Wilkie, Gerry Webb, Ron McInnis, Gordon Ellerker, Grodon Walker, Douglas Holmes, and Donald Smith. JUNIOR BOYS BASKETBALL The junior boys team had a bad year but most of the play- ers WERE PLAYING TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME. THEY LOST ALL THEIR GAMES BUT SHOULD NOT BE DISCOURAGED BECAUSE WITH LIT- TLE MORE TRAINING THEY SHOULD HAVE AN EXCELLENT BASKETBALL TEAM. MOST OF THEIR OPPONENTS WERE TALLER AND HEAVIER THAN the Forest juniors. Frank Sebo led the team in scoring the MOST POINTS IN ALL THE GAMES PLAYED. THIS TEAM WAS ALSO COACHED BY MR . R. L. MANNING.

WITH ONLY 3 REGULARS OF LAST YEAR ' S TEAM PRESENT FOR THE INITIAL WORKOUT, COACH Oon Thiers and Gerry Morrison were forced to mould together AN ALMOST NEW TEAM. IN a PRE-SEASON EXHIBITION GAME THE OLDTIMERS OF 49 DE- MONSTRATED JUST WHAT EXPERIENCE MEANS, WHEN THEY OVERWHELMED THE SQUAD BY A LARGE MARGIN. IN THEIR TWO GAME SERIES with Exeter, the team from the north edged out the raiders 11-10 at Forest and took a 24-14 decision in Exeter the fol- lowing week. However, the lads were never short of spirit AND GAVE THEIR OPPOSITION MORE THAN ENOUGH FIGHT. NEXT SEASON WE HOPE WILL BE A WINNING ONE FOR F. D, H. S. (by Andy Windsor) F.O.H.S. TRACK AND FIELD MEETS The annual Track and Field Meet was held in September. Anne Fraleigh and Doug Sadler were captains of the Purple teams, while John Manning and Georgina Bryns headed the White teams. The Morning events included the jumps which were held on the school grounds, but the afternoon events, HELD AT THE FAIRGROUNDS, FINALLY DED I CED THE TEAM VICTORS AND INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONS. In October, Forest was out with flying colours on their way to Petrol i a to defend their title as champions of the Five-School meet, but unfortunately lost the Championship FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX YEARS, TO PETROL I A. ANNE FRALEIGH won Forest ' s only championship, the senior girl’s cup for THE MOST POINTS AND THE INDIVIDUAL CHAMP I ONSH I P. AT W.O.S.S.A. in London, the Senior girls took first place and set a new RECORD FOR THE SPEED THROW. WE KNOW WE CAN ' T WIN EVERY YEAR, AND ALTHOUGH THERE WERE MANY DISAPPOINTED STUDENTS FROM FOREST HIGH, THEY PROVED THEMSELVES GOOD LOSERS.
