It would be well for some other boys if they had a girl friend like Radford Shea's as he meets her at the bus station and thus saves a fare to Preston. ZA Nonsense A GLIMPSE Slater the prater, did you say, Yes, he belongs to the form 2A. He's not so very big or fat, But he shoots hot air straight through his hat. Jack Allard is a regular fellow, He blows his nose with a mighty bellow, But his usual performance in every class, Marks him first in fail or last in pass. Jack Hetherington, the bean-pole guy, Reminds me of the skyscraper high, His lofty carriage and stately mien, Makes me feel like an undersized bean. Hercules Craig is in 2A For the purpose of being there to stay. His wisdom falls on deafened ears And almost moves the teachers to tears. Everett Pirak, otherwise Joe, Isn't so fast, but isn't so slow. But when it comes to using his wit, . The rest of the form might just as well quit. Ding dong Bell Davidson spilled an inkwell. The ink goes trickling down the desk And thus "Davy" the floor has messed, But the words that greet him as if shot from a Krupp Are get some water and clean it up. As for the girls. Least said, soonest mended, We hate to say more, For fear they'd be offended. ?l4?l4,k Duncan informed us in a Grammar period that the Plural of solo is duet. 259143 Miss Goldie-"Yes, when she plays she seems to strike a dominant note in me." Miss Horsey-"Oh, you mean Flat." Plfvkg Interform rugby this season wasn't so inspiring. Somehow a schedule was not drawn up and the team didn't play a game. However, from all appearance we seem to have a strong basketball team and hope to do something more than lose games this year. At any rate we didn't lose a game in rugby. 3121? The girls' sports are getting along splendidly for 2A. They have won several games already, and are trying seriously fno foolingj for the championship. Then, of course, there's volleyball, and undoubt- edly 2A will rate high in this also. Let's hope so. ZB 2Bornot2B Ladies and Gentlemen-This is station T.O.B.E. This afternoon we are about to broad- cast the famous Rugby game between the 2B Invincibles and the All American Football team of 1905. We are very for- tunate in procuring that great African Hunter who has just returned from his mountain climbing expedition in the Sa- hara Desert, to announce this game. Ladies and Gentlemen-I speak of no other than Mr. Smith, known to his most intimate friends, as Mort, and to other people, merely as Mort. I now turn the microphone over to Mr. Smith, who will give you a push by push report of this game. "Mr. Smith." Thank you, kind sir-and now I will give you the line-up as it was given to 90 me: For the 2B Invincibles, the players are as follows-Mills, Clarke, Hipel, Wil- son, Rayfield, Day, Brown, Garden, Rids- dale, Ledingham, McArthur, Ferguson, Childs, Elrick, Flatt and Vifinn Otheir position on the field does not amount to very much-they don't even know them- selvesj. The team is under the supervision of Mr. Boyd. You will probably remember the players of the All-American team of 1905, but if you should not, I wouldn't worry about it, bfcause I have long since forgotten them a so. Well, Folks-there is the line-up, and now the band is coming out on the field, under the able direction of none other than our most popular and esteemed lead- er, Bob Bernhardt. My, what a great musician he is. ARATU I C in u I ,N ' A. I K' A LT O ESIPA fvgi BARLOW'S TAXI STAGEH 8: CU. . .

S D .,,,, , ' A , SPEQULA Now the teams are coming out to add some colour to the scene. I might mention the fact that Mr. Bob Ritz, the great mathematician, calculated, in the morning papers, that 2B Invincibles would be Vic- torious. I hope his judgment is correct. Ron. Underhill has control of to-day's important fixture and I hope he does not suffer any mishap. He calls the teams together and shouts, "Ready 2B Invin- cibles?"i "Ready, All-American 190l5," blowing his whfistle to bring the two opposing teams of gladiators into the fray. The bleachers that run along either side of the field are well crowded with all kinds of spectators, of every description, etc. It is now quarter time and the score is twelve to nil in favour of the Invincibles -now the game has started again-Bob Bernhardt and h's band of merry Troub- adors, break out in melodious rhythm as they render the Scotchman's National An- them: "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." We have now, reached, the half way mark and right here is where we bring forth our most pleasant surprise for you. The 2B girls' orchestra, composed of the Misses Anderson, Tulloch, Storey, Dixon, Daniels, Whalley, Buck, Bernhardt, Ren- wick, Shantz, Cole, Sohrt and Herriot, who will give their 'own' interpretation of the well-known bootleggers' song-"You Can Cry in Your Beer If You Want to- It Can't Possibly Taste any Worse." Thank you ladies. That was a noble effort. Now we go into the third quarter of this terrific battle, with the score 24-0 in favour of the Invincibles. At this moment, Jean Light arises and leads the cheerers with the appropriate yell-"They said they could beat us, but Oh, how they lied." Play in the Third Quarter was fast with the lads from 2B taking the offensive and increasing the count to 36-0. V PARA TUS " Now comes the last quarter, and with it the final chance for the All-Americans. By the Way, I have just thought of an experience that I had in my late travels- etc., etc., etc. Hurrah-Hurrah. Oh, What's all the noise about? Oh, yes, Ladies and Gentle- men-the game has just-finished and the Invincibles were victorious by the over- whelming score of 48-0. This goes to prove that Bob Ritz, occasionally, shows rare judgment. I overheard the remark that Ossie Mills was the star of the game. Who is he? I never heard of him. I will now turn you over to your local station announcer. ' Thank you, Mr. Smith. You have just heard Mr. Smith giving a push by push report of this afternoon's great struggle. We are now signing of, and will return to the air again at seven-thirty with the Children's Hour, sponsored by the United Spinach Grower's Corporation, growers of high grade spinach and other weeds. Good afternoon. -By Hoo Kares. P24 P14 Pk 2B WEINER ROAST A most delightful evening was spent at Barrie's Cut in October, in the form of a weiner roast. . Games and singing were indulged in and much enjoyment was had in this way. "Ginny" Childs, our budding Opera star, carried off all honours with his exe- cution of several ballads. We understand there is no voice quite like his, which can readily be understood by those present. The most anticipated event of the even- ing was the food, and great credit is due those who were responsible for the de- lightful repast. Miss Ruddick and Mr. and Mrs. Boyd chaperoned the affair in their usual cap- able manner. -R.S.U.

U1-A Vocation al T has fallen to my lot to bring to you the farewell message of the Graduating Class of the Vocational School, and while I am tempted to confine myself to the pleasant task -of extending felicita- tions, and the expression of the liveliest interest in, and hopes for our mutual suc- cess, I do not wish to thus place the stamp of futility upon our gathering here at this time. We all realize that every situation in life is susceptible of being resolved in terms of opportunity with its nevertheless invariably attendant responsibility and with its high lights and its shadows, nor can we presently claim as a youthful pre- rogative the right to pursue a carefree existence, to the neglect of our opportun- ities. We are met here after three years of a now cherished daily association in the good old G. C. I., in the pursuit of know- ledge-a veritable seed-time for the har- vest of the years. We have experienced in full measure the constructive contacts of the class-room, the campus, the assem- bly and the gym. We have enjoyed, fand in some cases sustainedl the highest and best efforts of our teachers for our devel- opment. The old School has placed a wonderful heritage of tradition at our disposal, to imbibe, to emulate, and to revere. And now that we are upon the threshold of active life and must go out from these contacts and associations and these kindly old walls, how have we kept faith with those who have made all these advantages possible? And lastly, how have we kept faith with ourselves? Do we squander our time, or have we learned to husband it? The great and good William Ewart Gladstone has said: "Believe me, thrift of time will repay you in after life with a usury of profit beyond your most san- guine dreams, and the waste of it will 96 V ft . - .2 Valedictory make you dwindle, alike in intellectual and moral stature beyond your darkest reckoningsf' Have We acquired the habit of con- centration? Carlyle, one of the mightiest intellects of all time, says of it: "The weakest living creature by concentrating on a single object can accomplish some- thing, whereas the strongest, by dis- persing his attention over many, may fail to accomplish anything." Finally, are We considerate of all, and especially of those whose mental or physi- cal equipment is perhaps inferior to our own, or whose environment may be other- wise circumscribed. If so we may fairly lay claim to the possession and exercise of true politeness, the elements of which are graceful manners, thoughtful kind- ness, and delicate respect. Moreover, we shall have acquired the art of making and keeping friends, which will prove to be one of our greatest assets no matter where our lot in life may be cast, for- "He who has a thousand friends Has not a friend to spare. But he who has one enemy Will meet him everywhere." My wish for us all is that we may "So live that when our summons comes To join the innumerable caravan that moves To that mysterious realm where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of Death, We go not like the quarry-slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, But sustained and soothed by an unfal- tering trust Approach our grave like one who Wraps the drapery of his couch about him And lies down to pleasant dreams."

The more delicate rode out while the remainder hiked with the assistance of flashlights. Upon our arrival there Awe found a blazing fire, which was started by some of our industrious young men of the form. The evening was spent in singing, playing games, Weiner eating and the toasting of marshmallows. Miss Mus- grove acted as "Chief Cook." The hungry crew demolished two baskets of grapes and three of apples. After the firemen of our crew had the fire put out we found ourselves trudging across ploughed iielos, climbing high fences, etc., until we reached our limousines. After counting the crew we found two missing and look- ing back over our trail we saw to our amazement Miss Honsberger and Ella Nicholson hanging high upon a barbed wire fence. We rescued them after much difficulty and were soon on our way home. ,n W A E , p . 5 PE Q U1'VL.',q ' GA 4,110 N 1 A GALT'S LARGEST HARDWARE WE CARRY A COMPLETE STOCK OF TOOLS, ETC. needed in manual training We carry Johnston's line of Wood Finishes ERASER HARDWARE CO..

EXTRA A reporter for a newspaper had been served with home-brew. On the same day he received for publication a wedding an- nouncement and a notice of an auction sale. In the evening paper the result was as follows:- "A beautiful wedding took place at Pineville, at 12 o'clock sharp, on a bob- sled, nearly new, drawn by a pair of beautiful white calves. Music was given by a Gibson engine, guaranteed to go when in working order. The newly mar- ried couple were accompanied by two first grade milk cows, aged. The parish was decorated beautifully with chains, hay- forks, ropes and other articles too numer- ous to mention. Among those present were a pair of mongrel dogs, a pair of Persian cats and a hay-loader. After the newly weds were sold, they left on an extended wedding trip to China on two good bay mares with terms to suit pur- chasers. -G.S. A passenger asked a colioured train porter what time the train left for a certain city. The porter told her the right time. However, the lady was not satisfield and asked a white porter the same question, only to receive the same answer. When the lady had gone, the coloured porter walked up to the white one rather masterfully and said, "Well, l suppose she's satisfied now, she got it in black and white." E :, :k :ic Marie Margaret Helen Marian Ball took a parcel to the postal wicket to be weighed. Clerk-"If it would have weighed one gram more, it would have cost another 10c."

These, however, are not exactly new. A bridge builder thoroughly understands all the methods of bracing used. But a bridge, of course, is not required to be able to do a loop or dive through the air, and the strength required may be more easily calculated. If in an aeroplane the parts were made too strong and heavy, it would end up by being commer- cially impractical, and, if too light, would be very unsafe to operate, and therefore aeronautical engineers have to figure just the right proportion of strength to weight. Practically the machine has to be so designed that the load likely to be im- posed during flight is distributed evenly along the structure, and that where there is probably not much force acting on a certain spot, this must be made lighter than where a heavy load is applied, to keep the factor of safety the same in both places. Structural failure in an aeroplane is al- most unheard of to-day, and for a ship to lose a Wing after it has flown a consider- able time is not an indication of bad en- gineering, but of dreadful negligence in the maintenance of the craft. -H. Zinn, T 3. The Development of Television ELEVISION has made great strides during the past year. The early Tel- evision receivers used Scanning Discs of different sizes, whereas the present day receiver uses a Scanning Drum, which results in a more compact outfit. A Neon lamp is used to project the picture onto a ground glass screen in the following man- ner:- A magnifying lens at the back of the screen serves to enlarge the picture suffic- iently to be seen by four to eight people at a time, the Television signals are broadcast on a 'short' wave length so as 104 not to interfere with Broadcast stations as it requires a fairly broad wave band. To use a Television Receiver the Re- ceiver is first tuned in with the switch at the 'sound' position till the note is heard at its loudest, it is then switched over to the 'picture' position and the picture is framed by varying the speed of the motor. Television experimentation first began in July, 1925, when C. Francis Jenkins, who had experimented in Motion Picture projection, first sent Television pictures from his experimental station, W3XK, at Washington, D.C. -L OW 1 - Q S I e if A DELIGHTFUL PLACE TO SATISFY "I Y THAT CRAVING FOR SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT WlLSON'S SANDWICH SHOP Eagan Gardens I' K' Manu' Limited Purina Feeds .

Home Television is not likely to come within the next five years or so as there are so many difficulties to be overcome and the equipment now used is very ex- pensive. -I. Hollway, T 3E. Social Activities of T. 3 URING the past fall, a number of Weiner-roasts were organized, and staged at Bryden's farm. According to what we hear, they were a howling success. Of course, the presence of a number of girls from C2B, added greatly to the general enjoyment. Hot-dogs and marshmallows are apparently one of the weaknesses of T 3. With the coming of winter, the worries of school life, and exams. were forgotten long enough to enjoy a series of house- parties, arranged at the home of students of T3, and C2B. For the use of their homes on these occasions, we owe a vote of thanks to Mrs. Girvan, Mrs. Cullaton and Mrs. Hollway. SCHOOL ACTIVITIES T3 has contribvfted worthily to the major activities of the school this term. In the field of sports the form was well represented. With the Senior Rugby Squad we had none other than "Jerry" Hugo, holding up his position on the line. His six-foot frame, and his 150-lbs. of bone and muscle did not tend to weaken the strength of this department of the team. The Juniors, while they did not come out on top of their league, showed that they had the fighing spirit. A good per- centage of this team was from T 3. These were: Burden, Walker, Buchanan, Clark, Avison, and last, but not least, Sipes, "the Blairitef' In the Glee Club operetta Buchanan is being given an opportunity to demonstrate his vocal powers. Other musically inclined pupils of the form are found occupying seats with the orchestra, in assembly, on Monday morn- ings. These are: Albert Bendus, Adam Bendus and Jim Girvan. vklkvk INTERFORM RUGBY T3 entered two teams in the Interform Series, one in the Junior League, and one in the Senior League. The winding up of the schedule found both of these teams in leading positions. llfflfif BASKETBALL It is planned to enter two teams in the Interform Basketball League, but, as the schedule has not yet been arranged, this is not certain. However, we are looking forward to a good season. 44822 TID-BITS AND T3 Bendus-"Zinn just gave me a ticket for a lecture and I don't quite know what he means by it." Dunn-"Why, what's the trouble?"

First aid is not a substitute for a doc- tor's skill and service. It is the treatment or attention given to a wound or injury as soon as possible after it occurs, while waiting for a doctor to come. The purpose of first aid is to save life and limb-to prevent infections and other serious complications. When applying first aid one must keep cool, or in other words not get excited. Supposing a person fractures a limb, a first aid student should immediately find a method to prevent the leg or arm being moved, by using splints and bandages in 106 U W I- JE s ft .

This is the difference between the two. In drafting the lines are either straight, arc, or circle. In an artist's work there are lines of all sorts. Many people think drafting is not good for everybody but it is. Anybody can use drafting knowledge. A storekeeper, if he is buying a new show case or something like that, the salesman just needs to show him the blueprint and he knows how it is going to be.

Our second game we lost, playing C1, by a score of 15-10. Our third game we Won, playing 1D, with a score of 14-12. The last game was the best game we played. It was 1D and we beat them by the score of 22-2. It was the best game we played and of course it was almost a white-wash. During the four games we won two and lost two.

Home Economics ' OUR CLASS TRIP TO TORONTO By Marion Smith, I-I3 Our form met at the Galt Canadian Pacific Railway Station, and .went down to Toronto on the six-forty-three train. This took us about an hour and three- quarters, so you can see we had ample time to take in the scenery. It struck me that the country through which we passed was very much the same as it is around Galt. In one particular place I noticed a number of stump and stone fences. From this I concluded that the land had not been cleared so long as it has around here, for if it had, you would find the fences falling down and rotting away. We arrived in Toronto about half-past eight, and the first thing we did was to examine the large Union Station, and look at the displays in the show-cases of the tunnels leading up to the Royal York Hotel. There was some tooled leather- work here in which we were interested, but, of course, we could not spend too much time in one place so hurried on, and went to Simpson's, where we spent the rest of the morning. At Simpson's there was a large de- partment taken up with lamp shades, in which we were naturally very much in- terested. We examined the materials out of which they were made, noticed the designs and the stands, and were greatly surprised at the high prices, we soon began looking forward to seeing how high the article mgiht be. Avon House proved very interesting also. It was made in the style of the original house, but was furnished with modern conveniences. A lady took our party through anothelt house which was filled with copies of orig- inal antiques, and which was decorated in the same style. It was interesting to notice the different ways in which the people of the different periods decorated their Walls. At about eleven o'clock we left Simp- son's and went to Eaton's where we exam- ined a few of the hats until about a quarter to twelve. I noticed that the majority of the hats were dark brown or green, the brown ones in particular being trimmed with large feathers, which re- minded our whole party of the hats the women of fifty years ago used to wear. We had our dinner in the Georgian Room and our group were all ready for it. I did not know that one could get so tired by just looking around, so we certainly were ready for a rest and some refresh- ments. We all felt much better, after our enjoyable dinner, and ready to be moving. The whole party looked through Eaton's once more, examining the way the leather and ribbon flowers were made, getting new ideas for Christmas gifts, and looking at the tooled leather work. We then went through Woolworth's, as it is in the same block, before going up to Eaton's new store. The thing we took the most interest in he1'e Was the Thrift 112 1 I-6 1' :SQ I l ' I .IQAERMPER ug "Tvs ..

It was a fair size and nicely finished. In each room there was posted the price of each article in it, so we could see for ourselves that it was a thrift house in fact as well as in words. 'Our next destination was the Royal York Hotel. Here we spent about an hour. A bell boy took us through, showing us the library, reception hall, dining-room and concert hall. They were all very large and beautifully decorated. From here we went directly to the Royal Winter Fair, which was the most interesting of all to me. After looking at the flowers we went to see the fish. There were little ones, short ones, fat ones, blue ones, and many were very beautiful. One thing that impressed me deeply was a place that they had fixed up to look like a swamp. A small creek was winding- in and out through swamp grassesg on the bottom of the creek there was sand, and the familiar swamp bird, the bittern, stood in this picturesque swamp. This looked so natural that it reminded me of a particular spot at home. From the Howers we went to see the horses. We had quite a time finding them, and when we did, they were in separate stalls. Many Saskatchewan and Alberta horses were shown. The Prince of Wales' horses, from his ranch in the latter prov- ince, were there, perfectly formed, large, well-groomed and friendly. All the horse stables through which I went had box stalls, except one, so they must have been fairly comfortable. From the horse stables we went back into the Coliseum, and through it to the cattle section. There were many different kinds-all good, as one could easily see. One thing that I particularly noticed was that all the men looking after the cattle were in clean white uniforms. it was now after eight o'clock so we l-I This is station H.E.3 Vocational School, Galt, Ont., announcing.

As you probably know, we have been doing some experiments with rats. Here is what they said when they saw them: Miss Honsberger fconquering her dis- taste,J "Oh, the little darlings." Annie Margaret Isabel Bond-"W-W-will they bite ?" Recella-"Oh, what long, horrid tails." Mary Matheson-"I don't care for them very much." Personally we like young pigs better. "Miss Wigham," squealed Mary Math- eson, rushing into the Cooking Lab., "there is a white rat in the dining room." "Never mind, Mary, white rats are lucky." Mary-"This one is, for 'it's had your dinner." 21 Pk if We have only had one social gathering as yet, the annual weiner roast for H. 1, 2, 3. We were accompanied by three teachers fone of whom greatly amused tus by doing- the cake walk to keep warmy. Although we have in other years gone down to the quarry, this year we trekked down to Soper park. We were laden with weiner, rolls, our own pickles, pie, candy, grapes and lemon- ade. The victuals were heartily partaken of by hungry appetites. The enjoyable even- ing closed with a round of pee-wee golf, which was given by the teachers. Our only regrets were that Miss Wigham was unable to attend. . 3 be a great success as an actress. She is getting considerable practice here at the Vocational School, along this line. It is reported that she thinks she talks too much for her own good but we think she is only keeping her voice in practise for future use. Their tallest member, Mary Matheson, is expected to run one of the most patron- ized Beauty Parlours in Innerkip. After that we think she will marry one of the prosperous young farmers, near her home town, who raises pure bred Jersey cattle. We are not quite sure of Annie Bond, 114 ' SE it W W? 71' l' 14. fs SPE C' A ARA Tusl L9 A but we feel sure she will spend part of her days, if not all o'f them, making clothes for her many "cousins." Betty McEwen, their farmerette, will soon be head of a large horse ranch in Albertag and as she says "have all the cowboys running after her." Recella Washburn, after finishing her nursing course, says s'he is going to be an old maid and have lots of cats and parrots to keep her company. Bernice Lund is proving quite good in typewriting periods so perhaps she will turn toward the Commercial side of life and be a stenographer. Mary Currie, me thinks, would make a PARATU5 very good manager of a lunch-roomy so do not be surprised if you see in your evening paper soon that she has opened up the new "Eatmore" Lunch-Room in Campbelleville. Grace McCrea would very much like to follow the millinery line and start up a shop of her own, and in the meantime, her fellow-students think she will be help- ing to keep things lively in the Glen.

The Spaniard found there a beverage, known in Aztec as "chocolate"-from choco fcocoaj and lath Iwaterl. The Emperor Montezuma was exceedingly fond of it and is said to have consumed many jars or pitchers daily himself and his house- hold 2,000 jars. Cocoa beans in sacks containing a speci- fied number were used as currency for the payment of taxes, purchase of slaves, etc. In fact the Aztecs valued the cocoa beans even more highly than gold. A Chocolate was introduced to Spain which country long tried to hold it from other nations. but of course failed, and by the 17th century its use had spread through Europe. ' Cocoa beans are grown in VVest Africa. the West Indies, Ceylon and other coun- tries. In making Neilson's Iersey Milk Chocolate only the finest cocoa beans are employed and these are blended by Neilson's experts, then roasted, ground and milled by special processes to give that smooth. rich. matchless flavor that makes Neilson's Iersey Milk the best milk chocolate made. l -4 rx' 'gf ' ' E2fE, 5 ff Nrilsans 2 ,w ij N Y Cl'l0COI.A1'l l ll ' k N ', 4, ggi I A ' x fi. if , .. - - fr . i5?' fTf, ,. , Z...- nl N1 'rl-as sesr Mun caocomre MADE X' ' 'Q C.

From the Watch-tower, in this opening year, we see in the foreground our School, larger in number of pupils than ever before. The staH has been increased, additional equipment provided, there is expansion in every department, greater facilities for education are at the disposal of students. If there is no royal road to learning, at least no other highway has more expended on it for the purpose of removing obstacles, and broadening the road for travellers. Looking farther into the world-great progress is to be seen. Continents are united by telephone and radio. New speed records have been made, marvellous feats performed in the air-mechanical inventions of every kind add to the comfort of daily life-Yet in spite of material development' the world is in a state of depression and unrest. Though great wealth abounds poverty stalks through the land. The question of unemployment occupies the minds of statesmen in every country. Age- long traditions-as in Spain at the present time-are being attacked, the old standards of morality and faith are disputed. How are these problems to be solved and prosperity brought out of discord? It was said recently by a prominent Canadian, that the hope of a country lies in its youth. In the G. C. I. and other similar insltitutions are forming the characters and personalities which, in a few years, will be called to assume the tasks of the home, the state, and humanity at large. It is at school that ithe equipment for those responsibilities must be ob- tained-Strive to acquire independence of thought. Learn to weigh, to consider, to decide. In his Rectorial address to the students of St. Andrew's University Sir W. Grenfell says, "A man who has the courage to say 'I will' or 'I will not' among his comrades, 'has gained a greater knowledge of the education which is needed to make him of real value to the world and to himself than if he knew more current science than most men can ever hope for"-Tenacity of purpose has always been a char- acteristic of great men-Obstacles must arise in every pursuit, those which are overcome by unremitting effort transfer their strength to the victor-The prize. that is lightly attained is of little value. This is equally true of play and work. There is not much difference between these two, together they make up the game of life. Semper Paratus, the school motto which appears on the shield, is the ideal toward which school life aspires. It is one which has been glor- iously realized in the history of our school, on the field of battle, and in the less picturesque but challenging field of civil life. Let each pupil of the G. C. I. make the motto his own, for school days, and for the more responsible years to come-It will, if followed, procure for him the "joy of life, which is fthe measure of its force." J. W.

So, perhaps, we may find room here for a word or two about our school paper itself. A position on the SPECULA Staff isn't all it's cracked up to be. We agree that it is an honour, but at the same time a difficult task. Needless to say we cannot edit the SPECULA GALTONIA without material, and to whom should we appeal for material if not to the students themselves? If you have any ideas or cartoons, don't keep them to yourselves, try giving others the benefit of them and let them appear on the printed pages of our school magazine, so that your fellow school mates may enjoy them too. It is the endeavour of the SPECULA Staff to maintain a high stand- ard and in order to do this we must have the full support of every student. The students have supported the SPECULA GALTONIA nobly in the past. Let us keep up this support and"our magazine will be one of the best, a boon to advertisers and a credit to the school. Perhaps you will ask, is the SPECULA worth while? Certainly it is worth whileg here is our spirit expressed, here is our one common desire to produce a good magazine for our Collegiate. Here is the evidence of the sort of spirit that ought to exist everywhere where young people get to- gether for their education. We want to be proud of our paper, as proud of it as we are of our school and our staff . We want the spirit of our Collegiate to be outstanding-to show enthusiasm, honour and good fellowship. To us the cover of our SPECULA GALTONIA with the school crest bearing the 21 Pewerug U A A Pnnvvsn " if motto "Semper Paratusj' should be symbolic, for this, above all, should stand for the school spirit. So fellow students let us always remember that the well-being of a school depends on the well-doing of every scholar in it and the only way that we can have a first rate school paper is by the faith- ful work and co-operation of you all. The former students- of the school established a precedent which we may well follow and it is our duty and privilege to set a worthy example for those who are to come, so that when we step down we can say fearlessly-"Carry on." ' The York All over Canada, and even the United States to-day, people Bible Class are listening to the Sunday afternoon meetings of the York Bible Class-through the medium of the radio. They are enthusiastically interested in its progress and prophesy a brilliant future for it in the Christian world. The leader of this magnificent organization of young men is Mr. Denton Massey, himself a young man eloquent, and sincere, a young man who is striving to follow and to lead others into following the guidance and lead- ership of the greatest young man that ever lived, Jesus Christ. Sunday, February lst, marked a great step and turning point in the career of the York Bible Class and its members. It was the occasion of its 6th birthday. On February lst, 1925, a group of eighteen young men under the leadership of Mr. Massey, gathered in Hope Church and held the first of an everlasting and immortal line of meetings of the York Bible Class. To-day it is one of the largest and most successful classes for young men in Canada. Mr. Massey said : "We do not advertise ourselves as the world's largest Bible class because we do not dare. The wor1d's largest Bible class may number less than ten. To us our numbers mean a greater responsibil- ity and anmore extended challenge." To-day he spoke the does not preach, he says he does not know how to preachj on a text taken from one of the most charming of A. A. Milne's poems : "Now we are Six." This address, delivered on the day of the class's sixth birthday, was one of the most beautiful he has ever delivered. Pre- sented in that simple, direct way that is characteristic of Mr. Massey, it struck a vital chord in the breasts of all those who listened to and absorbed his wisdom. He said : "We are striving after the truth. We pray that this class may be a factor for the good in the hearts of all here assembled." 22 I I I' -I' f -- -- I . ' V 1 ie Sfmpir spg v PARA? l U La A A PARATUSI. ' ' The York Bible Class has been a success. If we could find stronger words we might use them. Superlatives are unnecessary and we feel that that word "success" expresses all that is needed. But in the words of Denton Massey, "Only the empty head swells. The greatest danger of success is success itself-success that promises a greater success to come." A. A. Milne puts these words into the mouth of his child hero Christopher Robin. "N ow I am Six I am clever as clever, I think I shall stay six For ever and ever." Now that the York Bible Class is six it does not intend to stay six forever and ever but to go on to greater things, to develop a wider sphere and to "strive after the truth." These young men and their young man leader are standing on the seventh step-they have barely begun--the whole stairway is now before them and their success, though large, is small in comparison to what it promises to be when they are sixty. gi!! The dramatic talent of pupils throughout the school has The Student been evinced in the three departmental plays presented this Dramatic term. These plays, sponsored by the Literary Society, have Club served to sustain general interest in dramatics among the students, they have trained the players to act more convincingly, and have demonstrated that we can play parts when we try. It is our purpose, in these lines, to arouse interest in an organization which would enlarge our knowledge of dramatics, and enable us to present at least one long play in a year. We have, in our school, a Staff Players Club, which annually enacts plays from noted playwrights. Their efforts are always crowned with success, and we pupils wish them well. But we feel, that since we have eight hundred scholars in this Institute, we should have a players' organization of our own, under the guidance of the staff club. This society would be open to any person in the school, and would give a performance for the public each year. In it we would learn the rudiments and some of the finer points of stage expression. 23 PARA Tu N C U La A A PARATUS MR. R. S. HAMILTON, M.A. 24 11 SE ..,. QE , . VA. JP I 1 'M Tv l Pnrrvs ' R. S. Hamilton, M.A. Note:-This is the second of a series of sketches of our illustrious teachers, to appear in the Specula Galtonia each year. "He ls a Verray Parjit Qentzl Knightf, -CHAUCER R. HAMILTON was born in the little country village of Motherwell, situated in the beautiful valley of the Thames, six miles north of St. Mary's. At that time it was a Scotch settlement, but since then it has lost its identity as such. His father was the Presbyterian minister at Motherwell. Mr. Hamilton received his primary education at the "Regular Mother- well Academyj, as it was called. "Where," said he, smiling reminiscently, "The rawhide and maple-wood pointer reigned supreme." These were the symbols of authority. The Academy was preparatory for the entrance examinations, but during the winter months it was not unusual for pupils of twenty and twenty-five years of age to attend. Leaving the Academy, Mr. Hamilton started his High School career at the St. Maryfs Collegiate Institute. It was during this period that he de- veloped a liking for walking because he had to walk the six miles back and forth from his home to St. Mary's every week-end. Mr. I. M. Levann, one of the Inspectors of High Schools for Ontario, was principal of the St. Mary's Collegiate Institute at that time. Graduating from St. Mary's, Mr. Hamilton journeyed to Toronto where he enrolled in the Science Course of the University. At that time there were just eleven men in the freshman year of the Science Course and these eleven passed through the whole four years and graduated together. The Hon. Howard Ferguson, newly appointed High Commissioner for Canada to Gt. Britaing James Brebner, former Registrar of Toronto University, and Dean DeLury were amongst those who graduated at the same time. Mr. Hamilton has always been vitally interested in all kinds of sports. He played soccer and football and it was while at University that he first became interested in and started to play rugby. He was a member of the Varsity Glee Club which toured the country during the Christmas holidays making appearances. At this point in the interview he laughingly re- marked, "I am now a horrible example of one whose vocal chords have become useless through lack of exercise-or was it too much exercise ?" Apparently those old Glee Club days left some impression on him for he has since played very successfully many prominent roles in the Staff Players' Productions in our School. The year Mr. Hamilton graduated, the University was completely destroyed by fire, which they said was due to "Pride," because of the fact that the unfortunate man who dropped the fatal lamp was named Johnny Pride.--So the old adage-"Pride goeth before destruction." Dr. Daniel Wilson was president of the University at that time. Mr. Hamilton graduated from University with his B.A. degree and went to one of the Training Schools at Guelph, Ont. He accepted his first position teaching at Georgetown, but for only six months. Then he took another position at Whitby, where he taught for three years under Prin- cipal Tamblyn. . Then Mr. Hamilton came to the Galt Collegiate in the capacity of Science Master. At that time there were only five other teachers on the staff : Dr. Carscadden, PrincipalgMr. DeGuerre, MathematicsgMr. Wright, 25 1 ... ff u - f fi 'WA Tv l L' A Pnm-rvs Moderns, Mr. Logan, Classics, Mr. Evans, Commercial. The next year, 1901, brought the first lady teacher. At this point Mr. Hamilton quite seriously remarked, "There have been tremendous developments along that line since." The year after Mr. Hamilton's advent into our school's'life, he took charge of all athletics. He taught the girls physical training, and started teaching the boys rugby. He also coached them in soccer, lacrosse, football and other athletics. To promote interscholastic competition he donated the first "Hamilton Cup." It was Won for seven consecutive years by Guelph who for their Wonderful success were given perpetual ownership of the cup. The second cup was Won for five consecutive years by Galt, who now have perpetual possession of the cup. The present cup is still as strongly fought for on the gridiron, as in bygone days. But Mr. Hamilton did not confine his interests to sport alone-. The first school paper was a Written copy which was read at Literary Society meetings. He organized and edited the first printed school paper called the "G. C. I. Record." It was a monthly paper and sold for five cents the copy. He related an amusing incident concerning the paper and the late Mr. Mac- George, the former man-of-all-work about the School. "Mac" was some- thing of a poet and when asked by Mr. Hamilton to contribute one of his poems, he did so. Mr. Hamilton tried to correct the metre and when the poem appeared in print "Mac" was terribly outraged and proceeded to tell in verse of the horrible attempt of the Science Master to reconstruct his poem. After Mr. Hamilton graduated from University he kept up his studies and in 1901 finished the necessary Work to obtain his M.A. degree. Mr. Hamilton has done some extensive travelling during his summer holidays. His travelling motto seems to be, "See Canada First," for he has travelled over our fair Dominion from East to West with the exception of the Peace River District and the North Pole, which he says he intends to visit in the near future. In his estimation the West is a greater source of interest than the East. Another of Mr. Hamilton's hobbies is Systematic Botany. The pursuit of this hobby has lured him all around Galt and the surrounding district in search of plants and the study of their habits. At his home he has a very fine collection of plants, which collection is reputed to be one of the best in Galt. Mr. Hamilton has seen our School's enrollment increase from one hundred to eight hundred, and the teaching staff from six to thirty-one, so that through his care have passed pupils Who have brought honour to themselves and to their School. Amongst these are Charlie Houston and Albert McCrae, railwaymen, John Detweiler, professor of Botany at West- ern University, Herbert Detweiler, prominent consulting physician in Toronto, the Struthers Boys, missionaries in Honan, China, Capt. Harold Oaks, prominent in aviation circles in Canada, Miss Christine Elmslie, winner of Prince of Wales' Scholarship at Toronto University, the late Fraser Kerr, winner of the coveted V.C. during the Great War, Miss Donelda Dickie, historian at the University of Edmonton, Frank Pana- baker, an artist Whose Works are accepted by the American Art Academy and Frank Hogg, Professor of Astronomy at Harvard and winner of a gold medal for astronomy. The Staff of the Specula Galtonia take this opportunity of Wishing Mr. Hamilton continued success and happiness in his associations in our School. 26 if ARA TU l U L' PARATUS llllllillElll3?ffl . "Awake, for morning in the bowl of night, Has cast the stone that put the stars to flight." -OMAR KHAYGAM Un Such are Friendships Made By HONOR BAILIE T was one of those glorious late June days made up of heat and sunshine and colour, an ideal afternoon for a boy and a dog. But Peter exper- ienced no pleasure in the warm brown dust under his bare feet, nor any thrill in the feel of his fishing rod as he trailed it listlessly along the ground. Toby, not sharing his master's unhappiness, was gaily trotting in front and regaling himself occasionally in hide-and-seek with the squirrels. Well, really, Peter had plenty of reason to be miserable. Here it was summer, the happiest time in a boy's life, and Reggy Schwartz, his best pal, was down with scarlet fever. There was Hanky of course, but Hanky didn't count, he was a big sissy in Peter's conception. It was no fun to play Indians or pirates by oneself. Peter, lost in his misery, did not realize that he was the object of deep scrutiny, until his melancholy reflections were suddenly interrupted by this startling comment, "Gee, I bet you ain't caught a fish in your life." Peter raised amazed eyes to the intruder, and beheld a dirty, ragged little boy, of his own age, perched on a stone wall. "I have so, I've caught lots," hotly retorted Peter. By this time Toby was inquisitively examining the stranger. "Say, call yer hound off meg he looks wild." At once Peter was on the defensive. "He 'won't bite yah, he ain't a hound, and he ain't vicious. He's thoroughbred." "Ha, ha !" jeered the stranger, Uthoroughbredl ha, ha, he's a hound." "He ain't," stoutly denied Peter. "Well, what is he then ?" This nonplussed Peter for a time, but he bravely rallied to the occas- sion. "He's got a thoroughbred collie tail," declared Peter, pointing to- wards Toby's jaunty little plume, "and he's got thoroughbred police dog ears." Peter got no further. 27 - SWE' i n . .U 'fg ilsemffili PARA Tv l U L' A A L Pnrrvs ' "Hah, hah, hefs a hound." "You dare say that again 5" Peter clenched his fists threateningly. "He's a hound," repeated the boy. Well, the result was rather confusing. Peter's left fist landed not too gently, on the offender's right eye, and a royal battle ensued. Over and over they rolled in the dust, and the air was filled with gasps and cries and shouts of fury. Toby, not realizing that he was the cause of the trouble circled excitedly around the combatants, wild with anxiety for his master, and bestowing the odd nip on the intricate mass of human limbs. Finally Peter, battered and bruised, emerged on top of the stranger. "Do you give in ?" he roared, accompanying this by furious bounces. The offender decided that he had received enough. A brilliant idea had just occurred to him. "Say," he said, "you won, but if you let me up I'll show you a great place for fishing." "Honest Inj un ?" demanded Peter. "Honest lnjun," replied the boy. Peter, all excitement now, snatched up his fishing rod, and trotte.d after the stranger, the memory of his fierce battle and the insult to Toby obliterated from his mind at the thought of fishing. In a few moments the boys reached one of the jolliest, brownest, warmest-looking ponds that Peter had ever seen. Overcome with delight, he at once occupied himself with the absorbing business of fishing. Minutes passed, but with no result. Peter was becoming seriously annoyed. "Give it to me," commanded the stranger. Peter rather shamefacedly relinquished his rod, and watched with amazement, then anger, and finally with downright admiration, as the boy pulled in one silvery fish after another. f P P w TNA X .M K! "How do you do it ?" gasped Peter. "Oh, I don't know, my father can make 'em come too. You got to have something in you to attract them. Dad calls it the 'oil of come along'."' 28 '14 I' '-4- .,.,. -V I 1 . if . if "Say, you got me all beat in fishing, and if you say Toby's not a hound, let's shake hands and be friends." "Well," conceded the. boy, "if Toby's a hound, he's a good old hound ianyvzay, and if I beat you in fishing, you can beat me all hollow in wrest- mg. Peter felt very grand, magnanimous, and forgiving as he shook hands with the boy. "What's your name ?" inquired Peter. "Tony," replied the boy, "just call me Tony." Say, Tony, will you come fishing to-morrow ?" Sure, any time, rain or shine." Oh, gee," was all Peter could say. Life was worth living once more. CC C6 ll '52 Tassie's Apes By HUME WILKINS LAD in dressing gown and slippers I am seated before a glowing fire- place, musing over the contents of a book of verse I hold in my hand. The writer was a man who loved and cared for our school for forty years-David MacGeorge. One of his story-poems appeals strangely to my mind, and by and by I begin to see the incidents of the tale taking shape the the red-gold flames. An etching of old Tassie School, a gloomy pile on its emerald campus, develops. Slowly a knot of boys comes into my per- spective, and I recognize them as some of "Tassie's Apes." The crackling of the fire is metamorphosed into voices, and I listen, entranced. J ack-"When ?" Dick-"To-night, while he's marking those exercises." Harry-"Suppose he hears us ?" Dick-'fWe'll beat it if he turns up." I - Harry-"But he'll quiz everybody to-morrow until he finds out who it was." Fred.-"Well, then, we-'ll confess-surely we can all stand the cane by this time." Harry-"But how will he ever get it back ?" Dick-"Oh, you're too conscientious altogether, we've got to have a little fun, even though somebody does smart for it." Jim.-"That's what I think-we haven't done anything exciting for months and months." Dick-"N ow, father and mother are away, and I'm alone at home. As soon as I've had supper, Illl snitch some doughnuts and a pie from the pantry, and then call for Jim-he1's going to bunk with me to-night. We'll hike over to the Head's barn, and I'll climb in the little window, and unbolt the front door, while Jim watches the house." Len.-"But where do we come in ?"

Chorus-" And me-and me-and me-" The scene gradually shifts, and to my mind the flames present an old- fashioned dining-room. As in the former picture, people become part of the view, and I know them to be William Tassie, and his wife. He is read- ing a news journal while Mrs. Tassie clears the tea-table. She speaks. Mrs. Tassie-"William." Mr. Tassie fstartingj-"Yes, my dear, what is it ?" Mrs. Tassie-"Shall you be very busy this evening ?" Mr. Tassie-"Oh, yes, yes-I had forgotten-there are some exercises to mark. But why do you ask ?" Mrs. Tassie-"Oh, for no important reason, William. I thought we might take a drive, it is a beautiful night." Mr. Tassie-"N ot now : I'm sorry, but to-morrow evening we shall go, if the weather is fine. But I must go to my study." tHe risesj.

I see a dozen boys laboriously pulling a huge carriage out of the Tassie driveway, and into the road. They rattle the cab off out of sight, 'and all is dark again. Now, mistily, a campfire circle appears. The same boys are standing about the blaze, and their chatter becomes more distinct as I watch.

Jan. 7, 1896. "In the fall of '93, I entered into possession of a small fortune, left to me by a dear uncle, who had obligingly died, and set out on a world tour to seek adventure and to visit parts unknown. Undecided even as to the direction I should take, I mentally 'tossed a coin' and set out for Cairo. I had just come down from Cambridge, where I specialized in mineralogy, and with this unworldly knowledge, I set foot in the Near East. The globe, it has been said, is small, and this dictum now justified itself, for on being directed to my hotel, whom should I meet but Petrie Flinders, a student of archeology, also late of Cambridge. As I remembered him, he had among his other idiosyncrasies, a belief that the meaning of every phrase in the Bible was historically exactg a fact which up to this time had led me to avoid him. This pre-conception, however, was soon to be disturbed. It was not many days before I discovered the purpose of his presence in Cairo. At first he merely told me that he had strayed so far from his 31 -'ll l' ,-'- ri. . ' - - if 'WA 'rusl L' A Pnrrvs I' 'W native Cambridge 'with a view to doing a little looking around in the Valley of Kingsf From his veiled periodic remarks I concluded that the question of Biblical truth played no small part in his movements. His goal was the recently discovered tomb of Amenopothet, that great Pharaoh, who, museum authorities claimed, so cruelly enslaved Moses and the Israelites. As a last great stroke of generosity he condescended to take me into his confidence to the extent of giving me a clue, he referred me to the tenth chapter of Exodus. After this enlightening announcement he decided to tolerate my presence on his venture, and combining our resources we set out towards Luxor, the Valley of Kings, and the tomb of the great Pharaoh Amenopothet, On our arrival there, Flinders explained that we were to obtain en- trance to the inner chamber where the royal mummy lay. Although still unaware of his exact purpose, but being quite free, and with the spirit of adventure strong within me, I agreed, though not without apprehension. We waited until nightfall, and then, crawling on our stomachs, fearing lest we should be watched, we reached a small stone doorway. Once inside we breathed more easily. The guards were now out of sight, and 'out of sight, out of mind,' so we lit our torches and made our path towards our destination. Unfortunately our way was barred by an anachronism in the unmistakeable form of a Yale lock. Petrie, however, with his natural re- sourcefulness, soon filed this in two, and we beheld-the inner chamber! I shall not dwell at length on the golden images, the inlaid furniture, the woven canopies, or any other evidences of a cruel splendour. Suffice it to say that the sight bewitched us, but our purpose was of a nature other than that of petty tomb stealing. We made our way to the opened sarco- phagus which occupied a central position in the rocky vault. Before us lay the mummy of Amenopothet, Pharaoh of Egypt, overlord of Ethiopia, Beloved of Ra,--titles long since obsolete. Flinders took, from a satchel he carried, a scalpel, and several bottles of chemicals. Then he set himself to his task. The operation consisted in removing the heart of Amenopothet, and placing it on the ground for inspection. He tapped it, and it cracked and crumbled like old china. This gruesome procedure forced me to won- der whether our pastime came under the head of 'Grave Violation? The old fe-llow had been dead for some time. but-my nervous reverie was disturbed by 'Note how brittle it is' from Flinders. I noted it, but for the life of me could not see what serious bearing the observation had on an adventure for which I had dared to risk my skin so carelessly. After experimenting on a piece of heart for some time, he again looked up and spoke, breaking my soliloquies on the discomfort of Pharaoh's Mother-of-Pearl bed. Then he said, and his voice had a ring that impressed me, 'This heart contains salts, which, in Pharaoh's life, encrusted it, har- dening the arteries-a sort of angina pectorisf I was almost annoyed at this interruption when Petrie continued in the tone of one who is exposing a riddle, 'And the Lord said unto Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is hardened".'

AROLD STANLEY DANDO is a native of Two Twenty-three North Water Street, Galt, city of a thousand other glories. He first put in an appearance there on October Fifteenth, Nineteen Twelve. Mr. Dando is tall and slender, lithely built. His locks, parted on the right side of his head, are curly and raven, characteristically kinky. Spark- ling eyes reveal the mischievous imp dancing behind them. His cherry complexion is easily fluctuated by emotion. His face is long and oval, at times assuming a pale cast of thought, although he is more likely to act on the spur of the moment, Without cogitation. Mr. Dando uses his tongue extensively for the purpose to which it was intended, but secrets are as safe as Gibraltar when once confided to him. Occasinally his calm temper turns testy side up, and his organ of speech moves accordingly. To hisbest friends he is always pleasant and suave, except when they annoy him unbearably. He is unceasingly tender- hearted, and delights to perform the small courtesies. Sociability is 1n- alienable to him, and a coterie of admirers often surrounds his attractive self. 33 .

His earliest recollection, in fact, is of getting the works for attempting to abscond with his brother's wrist watch. He confesses to having felt the schoolmasterly lash- twice since he entered the portals of the Collegiate. Once in the dear dead days beyond recall, when Miss Harding held court in Room Ninety-four, the very young Dando was committed to the mercies of the oflice strap, on a charge of shooting rice, at whom we do not know. He chewed gum one day, and was scathingly bidden to discard it, by whom we dare not say. The School Captain is a sportsman. As far back as he can remember, he has been snap on a rugby team. Wherever a group of schoolboys band themselves together to play a game, he may be found. Last year he was chosen Captain of the Basketball Team. The Gym. Team has known him ever since its inception. He is the Major of the Twenty-First Cadet Corps, and a crack shot with a rifle. The Man Dando's travels have led him afield to Cochrane in the wilds of the North, and the Border Cities on the edge of gangsterdom. He ap- proves highly of the inhabitants of the Ontario mining town, but considers Detroiters and Americans generally as grubbing and mercenary. His best loved sports are tennis and basketball, in both of which he is a steady, dependable player. He gives no reason for reading the books of Philips Oppenheim and Gene Stratton Porter. As interviewing representative of the Specula Galtonia, I asked Mr. Dando several pertinent questions. "What are your political views ?"' "I am a Tory," he replied. "As to your question regarding the St. Lawrence Waterway, I think it would be tough on Montreal. My idea of Empire Free Trade is that it would be practicable if it were somewhat restricted." "What is your opinion of the teachers and pupils of the school ?" "Well, the teachers are all right in the main. One or two of them might take reducing exercises. Some others might be somewhat more amicable, for instance it wouldn't hurt them to say good morning to us when they meet us in the corridors before nine o'clock. That would make for better feeling between them and us. The pupils are too staid. Why don't they get over their foolish inferiority complexes, and enter into things more? They don't mix enough, and it wouldn't do them any harm to slide down the bannisters once in a while. Perhaps Mr. Wholton would make some concessions in that case. "To what do you attribute your successful school career ?" "I don't know whether this is the proper thing to say or not, but I think it developed mainly because I have- always tried to be friendly and congenial with everybody in the school." "Have you a definite ambition ?" "Yes, I want to be a chemical engineer, and discover a way of turning old newspapers into sugar." My concluding question was one that has puzzled the master minds of the generation. But Mr. Dando's answer to it came quick as a flash. "What is the solution of Unemployment ?" "If every person had a job, there would be no unemployment." 34 PAM T'-'Sl U L' A A Pnrrvs H '- if The Supposed Elephant By CATHERINE BOWMAN N elephant lived in a square box outside the railway station, near the opening of the tunnel. Jack might not have been so perfectly cer- tain if his father had not told him it was an elephant. But Jack had seen the trunk himself-the long, leathery trunk with water dripping from the top of it. He had seen it when he was driving in the car with his father, and was obliged to wait because the gates across the road were shut down to let the train pass. The engine stood some dis- tance away, outside the trunk, by the square box and Jack said, "Oh, Dad, look! There's an elephant's trunkf' Dad looked, and answered gravely, "Yes, it's an elephant's trunk. They keep the poor brute in that tank, and he's hungry. He's even trying to get something to eat out of the engine." Jack looked again, and he could just see that the trunk seemed to be feeling about inside the engine. Presently the engine-driver pushed it out, and it fell back, all dripping with waiter. They gave it nothing but water. Jack thought that was mean of the railway station. He was very quiet all the way home, although generally he had many things to tell his father. Jack loved all animals. He knew what a lot elephants wanted to eat, but this poor elephant had nothing at all-nothing but water. He felt so miserable that he could not go to sleep for hours and hours. In the morn- ing the thought made his own cereal taste quite horrid, it even spoiled the egg sitting on a beautiful bit of buttered toast. If his father had not been in such a hurry at breakfast, he might have known that Jack's mind was far away. He was beginning to make a plan. If the railway station would not, and his father could not, he must go and feed the elephant him- self. He would go in the night after his mother had put him to bed. The other worry was money. But after inve-stigating his bank he thought he had enough of it. The buns were soon purchased and hidden under the bushes in the garden. He felt sure that if his mother saw the bags she would ask awkward questions. He was afraid, too, that Rags, his terrier, would steal the buns. For the rest of the day Jack was under a great strain of anxiety. It seemed ages and ages before his mother tucked him in, kissed him good-night, and went away to the kitchen. Directly she had gone, Jack was out of bed and pulling on his socks. Ten minutes later, he was slipping out of the house, very quietly, with most of his clothes buttoned in the wrong button-holes, because he had never put on all his clothes alone be- fore. It was quite a long way to the station, and it was getting dark when Jack slipped through its white gate. Nobody saw him as he made his way towards the elephant's house. Not a sound came from the animal, and Jack ' 35 H-xx ' b ' T"T , PAPA Tu l C U L' A A L' Pnuvrvs' ' " decided that the poor old thing must be asleep. He laid down the bag, and rather timidly held a bun to the tip of the trunk. But the elephant took no notice. He patted the cold, damp trunk, but the elephant did not move. He patted harder, and still nothing happened. Then Jack tried to think how one talked to an elephant to make it understand. But even then the elephant took no notice. Suddenly, Jack understood What had happened. The elephant was dead-starved. He had brought the buns too late. The lump in his throat turned to real sobs, and he turned home broken- hearted. Jack will never forget the incident, and the shock he got when his father told him it was only a leathery, trunky pipe, coming out of a tank, to give the railway engines Water.

Janet EATED at one of the long study-tables in our museum the interview with our Girl Captain began. Before me sat the victim, a most attractive victim, you might even say a delectable victim. For the girl who bears the burden of the weaker sex of the school on her sturdy shoulders is a favourite of nature and gentlemen alikeg a sunny-haired blonde, blue-eyed, rosy cheeked, deliciously snub-nosed, with a sudden sweet smile. This is Janet. She is a splendid student. Although forced to miss an entire year of school, she came back and stepped into academic life as if she had never missed a day. However, fair Janet is no bookworm. On field day in 1928 she walked off with the Senior Girls' Championship. She has graced the Softball Team through three successful seasons. Last year she made the Basketball Team. This year she starred as a fast, hard fighting, almost invulnerable defenceman. Our versatile Janet has still some cards up her sleeve. In '29 and '30 she decorated the stage as Secretary of the Literary Society. Now she is the mother of us all, Captain of the feminine body of the school, elected by the girls for her ability, her sportsmanship and for herse.lf. Swimming and ball are her favourite pastimes-skates beautifully- plays tennis, but doesn't like it much-has naturally curly air-organized a kitchen orchestra for a Lit. meeting-uses only powder-eats breakfast -likes dancing-wears a great deal of blue and green-likes stories of adventure and travel-is fond of Richard Haliburton-is not averse to a sentimental novel now and then-and loves chocolate ice cream. Janet believes we should have serious little things like Student Councils and Dramatic Clubs around the School, which might promote more friendly relations between students and staff. "One of the things I think we really should have," Janet insisted, "is a regulation uniform for the girls, you know, tunic and Margaret Eaton blouse. Evening dresses in the classroom must be distracting to the boys." Janet likes pre.sent day fashions. She approves of long skirts for even- ing but hates them for day-prefers bobbed hair to long-dislikes the spring hats. .i'Another thing," Janet waxed ene.rgetic, "I'd like to take a scrubbing- brush to a few of our phantom faces, the ones that look kalsomined, and scrub until they shone." Janet positively radiated excitement. "Don't you think a tea-dance would be a great way to end the basketball season ?" she suggested sudden- ly, "and that is the last idea I have." No doubt the rest of the school will agree that her last idea was a great one. 37 AWA Tu l U Lf A Pnrrvs O, Union, Union! By ANTION ITTINGLY enough, this year, the newly inaugurated onion week and our examination week arrive at the same time. Misfortunes, of course, never come singly, and we are resigned to the prospect of having every- one but ourselves the victim of onionosis, while we exist on a frugal diet of coffee and aspirins and Latin, feeling generally cross with the rest of the world. The persons responsible for onion week must either be sworn practical jokers, or Communists, bent on wrecking the peace and unanimity of in- telligent society. Perhaps the thing was got up by the makers of Listerine or Lavoris, or Life Savers, with the sole end in View of hastening the return of prosperity by having everyone rush to the drug stores to buy their products, so as to be able to continue to appear in polite company. Whatever was the cause, it may safely be construed that the eiect will be gigantic. Each morning of onion week, as we stretch experimental arms from the land of counterpane to strangle clanging alarm stocks in the cold grey light of dawn, the aroma of omelettes will be wafted to our nostrils. But when at last we are seated at the breakfast board, and have tasted the first morsels, anguish will mask our shining morning faces,-the omelettes will contain chopped onion, when we enter our favourite tea-rooms to in- dulge in delectable lunches at noon-time, the waitress will ask us how we wish our onions. Thereupon We shall bolt those deluding cafes, and eschew luncheons during the whole week. At evening, when we enter our own hallways, tired, but happily expectant of pleasant dinners, again our hopes will fall-the odour of the all-pervading vegetable will even have crashed the gates of dinner, and we shall sit down to beefsteak, smothered in onions. It will be a week of weeping. As women all over the land sit, peeling onions, hot, unbidden, and un- availing tears will roll down their cheeks--tears neither of joy nor sorrow, nor repentance nor pain, but useless tears--tears with no meaning and no objective. It will be a week when men will avoid their friends. Companionable intercourse will be impossible, and thus intimacies will be shattered, men will grow morose and sullen, and an atmosphere of gloom will cover the earth. But the onions themselves will at last come into their own. Grocers will sell them by the barrel, housewives will cook them by the pound, and they will grace the tables of all the homes of the land, small and great, rich and poor. They will be fried, roasted, boiled, creamed, scalloped, and grilled, they will be eaten raw, salted, with or without vinegar, peppered and in salad. Onion pickles will take the place of ketchup and H. P. Sauce, and sweet cucumbers, enterprising chefs will find some way to use them in desserts. So the humble and oft-despised onion will be brought before the public mind, and under the public nose, and will gain a positive or negative pop- ularity. People's minds will be made up on the onion question. They will be through with their everlasting stalling off the potent fruit of the soil in public, and clandestinely eating it in the privacy of home kitchens, and will come out strongly either for or against its penetrating personality. Such a move will make for the equalization of the national mind, and will aid in the relief of strained mental conditions. 38 f rem'-I S PE ew- A v G f-vf-to N ' A 5 999000990999 gnu - , - , , , A A .,.

The Ravin' By MAURICE CROMPTON CWith Apologies to E. A. PJ At our lessons we were sitting, as our teachers say is fitting, And our eyebrows we were knitting, knitting o'er the awful bore. As we sat there faintly snoring, suddenly there came a roaring, As of someone loudly storming, storming at us with a roar. " 'Tis the teacher,"' we all muttered, "storming at us with a roar, Only he, and nothing more." On and onward he kept ravin' and his hands he sure was wavin', Till to us there came a craving, craving to be out the door. All the while that he was roaring, we all, so it seemed, were poring O'er the lines of print so boring, sometimes looking towards the door 'LHOW oft, threatening detention, must I tell you 'PAY ATTENTION?

And oft on a. summer's afternoon, You will see a fisher boy, As he casts his line in the quiet flow, Where friendly willows lean so low, Where cat-tails, flags, and rushes grow, And fishing is a joy. Great heaps of stone on its banks so high Are placed with loving care, Fine schools and churches stand serene, Like sentinels at their posts are seen, In winter's white or springtime-'s green, O'er the river valley fair. And home folks round that old Scotch town, In the midst of a fertile land, See the river winding calm and free, By j utting rock and willow tree, And they hear it call to its friend, the sea, And they tell you, "That's the Grand I" FEE Day Dreams By GEORGE MOSS Nothing I like so well as these, A slash of green through woodland trees. A glimpse of sky between the leaves, A glint of sun on buckwheat sheaves. A muddy field of dappled brown, Sunlit roofs in a smoky town. A limestone shelf at the water's edge, A warbler's nest in an English hedge. The breeze ribbed surface of water still, The que-rulous call of the whip-poor-will. A billowy cloud in a sky serene, A swinging bird in the azure clean. A city street or a country lane, In glory of sun or ripple of rain. Nothing I like so well as these, An earthly heaven, a heavenly frieze. 40 , "" ' -'...,. ':. 1 , t I 3' M -S i ' f l as RAT l .. f .

The School Party GALA STUDENT EVENT AROLD DAVIS shook hands with the reception committee at least a dozen times on the night of the annual school social. That's the secret of pop- ularity. The school gym. was Hooded with light, and once past Janet and Hume at the door, everyone cast off the mantle of formality, and tripped the light fantastic, or played crokinole, absorbing and reflect- ing the glow of .the jolly lamps. Ice cream and delectable cake, and cafe au lait were served in the lunch rooms. Garf. wasn't hungry, so a considerable portion was left for the black kitten. When the party broke up, We pile.d in the family chariots, shining in use, and maybe went home, ultrajoyous. 'YL Memorial Service O the slow and solemn strains of that well-known hymn, "Oh God our help in ages past," -the long line of teach- ers, in the gowns of their Various Alma Maters, made its entrance into the crowded Assembly Hall. Folliowing in military formation, the Cadets of the School marched to their assigned places, while the guard of honour was arranged formally along the length of the auditorium. The service was conducted by fthe Rev. Canon W. H. Snelgrove and Principal T. H. Wholton. It was, in its beauty and sincerity a direct challenge to those who believe that to-day's youth are for- 44 getting the vast debt of gratitude and reverence they owe that gallant army of men who fell in France for the honour and preservation of their country. None who were privileged to attend the service, or who heard it broadcast, were untouched by a feeling of deep appreciaition and solemn reverence, from the time of the mellow bars of the opening 'hymn, to the soul-stirring notes of the bugler's "Last Post." While the voices of the pupils were raised in unison to the measured strains of "Oh, God of Bethel," the teachers were ushered out by the Cadets to pay homage with bowed heads to the memory of Galt's ' PAnA5i,2n PE U L. A I? dead war heroes. The long main corridor was lined on either side by the military uniforms of the Cadets and the impressive black gowns of the teachers, unadorned except for the colours to which their par- lticular letters entitled them. Between V PARA TUS ' these lines the whole school reverently marched past the tablet engraved with names of the dead, and hung with poppy wreaths to symbolize our remembrance of their great deed. ii The High School Editors' Convention RIGHT and early that Friday morning, when most students were in their comfortable beds, tired from their toiling upward of the night before, I wended my way to the C.P.R. Station to catch the six-forty Hier for Toronto. I was going to a gathering of School mag- azine editors, which was to meet in Con- vocation Hall at the University of Toronto. Editors were to be there from all over Ontfario, as guests of the Sigma Phi, Women's Journalistic Fraternity of the University. An all too short train ride brought me to the vastnesses of the Union Station, and I alighted, full of the dignity of my position as representative of the finest school in the world. A rather meaningless walk up Bay Street took the tight out of my legs, and I boarded a car and was whirled to Bloor and Avenue Road corner. My rube intelligence told me that if I proceeded any further I should only have to walk back, and I hustled OH the T.T.C. vehicle. I stood, in the middle of the sidewalk, mouth and eyes wide open, drinking in avidly the marvels of the corner, revealing to everyone my rustic extraction. But the Fates were kind that day, and sent their favoured messenger in the thrice welcome form of Marion Tait, to shield me from the city sharpers. For that extremely charming and accomplished young lady at that very moment stepped from a car, and we joined hands and danced with joy. In the next five minutes, as we moved along with a crowd of college students, each told the other all we could remem- ber. Marion pointed out Convocation Hall, and we. parted. Dear me, if I chatter -on like this all night, the account will cover reams, and I shall never be allowed to put anything in the Specula again. When we were all registered and seated reading copies of the "Varsity," the Con- vention came to order. Professor Wallace welcomed the delegates to the University, and the roll was called. Schools from North Bay to Ottawa were represented, some b-y one person, and many by two or 45 three. Rest assured that when "Galt" was called the writer made sure he was heard all over the building in his stentorian "Present" Two more addresses filled Friday morn- ing, one from Mr. Knowles of the Daily Star, and the other on Humour by the in- imitable Gregory Clarke. Frederick Allen, editor of Varsity, seemed to have recov- ered from his ducking in the pool, and spoke briefly on paper layout. Descriptions of all the speeches would only bore. Suffice it to say that we received a thousand and one new ideas for our journals, some of which you see embodied before you. Friday afternoon, after the session, we went through MacLean Publishing House, seeing- how the magazine is made. The assembling room for the books was per- haps the most interesting of all the departments. With lightning speed the different pages are arranged in proper order, fastened in place, and cut even. Then they are ready to be stamped for the mail. Each of us was given a copy of the Thanksgiving MacLean's, fresh from the press. A trip rthrough the Chatelaine Institute kitchen and dining room was entrancing to future homemakers, and afternoon tea was delightful to all of us, potential housekeepers or no. Friday night was the time of a mag- nificent banquet, in the Arts and Letters Club. It was .the high light of the occasion, for such men as Charles G. D. Roberts, Arthur Lismer, and Doctor Hardy were present. On Saturday afternoon we separated, and some went to the Rugby game while the others saw Street Scene, the Pulitzer Prize Play, at fthe Royal Alexandra. The greatest thing about the whole meeting was the formation of new friend- ships. Everything was most informal, and links of affection were firmly welded be- tween us. They will live when the speeches and speakers and sights of the Convocation are forgotten. 2 PARA vigil E C U Lf A A PARATUSK i " ll'-l-lfl Commencement - HE auditorium of the School was well filled on the night of Dec. 5th, to witness the annual commencement exercises. An interesting feature of this event was the fact that it was broadcast directly from the stage of the Assembly Hall, permitting more than those parents and friends directly interested to partici- pate in the ultimate success of those grad- uating. - Medals and prizes were presented to fthe efficient in each particular department of the school, and to those who had shown particular brilliance in languages. The monotony of presentations was effectually broken by very nicely rendered solos, both on the violin and saxaphone, by talented members of the orchestra. The Glee Club which plays an important part in the school's activities, made its first public appearance this season, singing a very charming chorus, which was highly ap- preciated. Following this, the graduates received their hard-earned diplomas. Both the Vocational and Collegiate departments of the school were represented in the Vale- dictory address. In former years both graduating classes were represenlted by one orator, usually selected from the Collegiate department. This, however, was felt to be unfair by the Vocational department, with the result that this year a boy from each was chosen, and this added greatly fto the programme. Jack Dawson interpreted the feelings and expectations of the Collegiate depart- ment in a sincere and well-worded ad- dress, and Ray Hodgins in a cleverly compiled speech gave the outgoing grad- uates a word of advice and exhortation. fix! Rugby Dance Season of spectacular rugby was closed fittingly with a brilliant and successful Rugby Dance. The music was played by Jack Baird and his Joy Boys, and a happy group of some two hundred guests of the Rugby Club danced to his rythmic selections. In perfect har- mony with the dancers were the gay and cleverly designed decorations of the school gymnasium. A tasty mid-dance lunch was served in the lunch rooms. After four hours filled with pleasing entertainment the happy dancers dispersed. The Rugby Club is to be congraitulated on its achieve- ments, sporting and social. 'RES Physical Training Exhibition HE main gymnasium was filled to capacity on both nights of the SichobJl's Physical Training Exhibition. This is the time when every student in the school can take part in a program arranged to synopsize the work of the -two Physical Education teachers for the year. Last year, as in former years, the performance was of sterling quality, in itself a proof of the splendid training along physical development open for stu- 46 dents at the Collegiate. Each form or girls and boys was represented in Calls- thenics, dances, dumb-bell drills and Wand drills, all these items being of special interest to outsiders. The girls' and boys' gym. 'teams performed their difficult feats in gymnastics in excellent style. Much credit was due to Mr. Donaldson and Miss Duggan for their fine Work in training the participants to attain so high a standard.

A spectacle of precision and training was presented on the spacious campus of the Galt Colleg- iate when the Cadet Corps of this Institute turned out for their Annual Inspection. Each unit carried out its part of t-he ceremony giving proof of careful drilling by Mr. Donaldson, t'he teacher in charge of cadet and physical training. Major Jeffery, of Military District No. 2, was the visiting officer. Many local and visiting military men were guests of the Cadet Corps. The march past and general salute under the command of Major MacIntosh, were carried out in excellent military style. Company and platoon drill followed the inspection of the entire corps, and having completed this, the corps quitlted their tunics and formed to put on a snappy display of physical exercises and games meant to excite alertness and precision. Besides its perfect execution of military ceremonials and manoeuvers, the corps displayed a pleasing sight in their khaki uniforms surmounted by scarlet epaulets against the noble background of the handsome Collegiate building. The entire scene was proof of a splendid effort to make the boy of to-day a real man of to-morrow. ' Banquet OLLOWING their splendid display on the campus, the officers and boys of the Cadet Corps were handsomely rewarded with a banquet prepared by a fcharmingj group of girls of the Colleg- iate, under the supervision of Miss Wig- ham. Having partaken of a full course of tasty food, nexlt in order we enjoyed toasts and speeches by Cadet officers and guests. The inspecting ofiicer, Major Jeffery extended his hearty congratula- tions to the boys on their fine showing in the afternoon. It was also his pleasure to present medals won by members of the Corps during the passt season for marks- manship. Present were the visiting military officers and members of the Board of Edu- cation. All guest speakers were generous in their praise for the work of the Corps. This banquet was a fitting close to a thoroughly successful afternoon. P.S.-W'ho snitched the dozen and a half' spoons missing on checking up after the spread? Ak! Cadet Dance AY the 9th was a big day for the Collegiate-a day filled with color- ful spectacles. First the inspection carried on to the tunes of the Bugle Band, next the banquet accompanied by the tuneful strains of a hungry bunch of boys partaking of a resplendent repast and then the music of t'he Dance, the crowning feature to a splendid day's activity. And what a pleasant feature it was! Tim. Eaton and his Music Makers provided a B 49 rhytthmic program of dance music for some two hundred guests of the Cadet Corps. The thoughts of "form fours" and "right turn" were forgotten and wafted away in the notes of "Sing you Sinners." Need it be said everyone enjoyed him- self. This closing part of a full day's program was a huge success and remains as a pleasant memory of the end of a perfect day. T .- 'v ,sh I wg -v , 1 1 1 x 4 -4 n u 1 .,". ,.

There are only two such machines in Western Ontario, the other being at- the University of Toronto. In this machine between the two large jaws a piece of steel is gripped and by a sysutem of gears and levers a leverage of 350 to 1 is obtained and the steel is grad- ually pulled apart and broken. The force that is required is measured on the scale beam by a sliding weight, and the machine will stand and pull 20,000 lbs. or will break a piece of steel M" in diameter. During the war the Goldie-McCulloch Co. used this machine very extensively for testing the strengith of steel used in the making of shells and ammunition mater- ial. We are very fortunate in being the recipients of this rare piece of apparatus, and here we wish to oHer our thanks to the Goldie-McCulloch Co., who have once again shown their interest in our school. A picture of this machine may be seen on fthe group of "School Views." it-S Literary Society Meetings HE Literary Society has been very active during the past year in prepar- ing novel and' interesting programmes for the pupils' entertainment. The pupi's themselves responded nobly to the urgent and often pitifully frantic appeals of the officers for co-operation, and the display of talent-if such it can be termed. The latest venture, advocated by this estimable society, is a public speaking contest-of Gourse 'they don't biuy the prizes, but . . . It's not so naive and guile- less as it sounds either. Only boys posses- sing the power of thinking quickly, and expressing their ideas adequately, are eligible and ithere must be at least twelve of these. Naturally, that is only a minor detail! The subjects will be distributed to the contestants at the meeting at which they are lto speak, which should make matters more or less exciting-at least for the audience. The first Literary meeting was a revela- tion-all except two of the officers turned out- to be boys-well really! But rthey did deliver such convincing speeches, depre- ciating their virtues, and exaggerating their unworthiness, etc., etc., that we were moved by their touching humility. Me- thinks ltheir demeanour belies such words -notice the smug complacence of the pictured "Literary Society." To keep the officers, who had not already thanked their supporters, in a pleasing state of nerves, this programme was filled with instrumental renditions, and a beautifully performed Oriental dance. We personally think the less said about the second meeting the better, but un- congenial tasks have a habit of demanding 51 attention. You have guessed it! The programme dealt with the Collegiate De- partment's play. In the manner of the usual dyspeptic reviewer we continue: The plot of the play, entitled "Three Pills in a Bottle," centered about the rather drab existence of a little sick boy- and in depicting this part, there was great scope for pathos, sincerity, and the touch- ing, trusting element ever present in the very young or weak. His mother, a poor destitute widow, was obliged to go out "by the day," leaving the small child to his own vagaries of imagination. The friends he has made in his loneliness, each appear on the stage and talk to him in the person of a wealthy business man on 'his way to the great metropolis which is his worldg a sunny, optimistic scissors grind- er, and a slatternly good-natured washer- woman. As each exits, professing himself too busy to play, his own spirit enters after him to entertain the amazed child. Of course the spirit depicts the innermost hopes and aspirations of his master, which lends a mystic and supernatural air to the whole play. Tragedy is introduced when each of the three spirits develop certain indispositions which one of the three pills will cure. The little child possesses only these three pills, which he has been told will restore him to health and strength, and, hard as it is for him to sacrifice such a hope, he nevertheless gives them away-gives away the prod- uct of many weeks' heart-breaking labour, and privation on the part of his brave mother. Yet, at the end, the miserly busi- ness man, seeing the widow's dire distress, 'fa f' --4' s 2- . 5PE?U'-A buys the much needed medical attention necessary for the boy. An allegory such as this might not appeal to the average student body, which seeks to be amused rather than elevated, but on the whole it was very well re- ceived, due, in part, to the excellent di- rection by Mr. Hale, and the splendid co- operation of the cast. Descending from the sublime to the ridiculous, at the next meeting we wit- nessed one of those jolly old spelling matches-you know, the sort that used to inspire us to nights of frenzied study in public school days, so very long ago? Those who proved adepit in this particular type of sport-or what have you-were chosen from each form, and all gathered on the stage of the Assembly Hall, when the great event had finally arrived. Mr. McKee bombarded the eager war- riors with words both obsolete and ob- stinate, whic'h gradually put to flight all but lthe victor, who stood "bloody but un- bowed"-a first former as you have prob- ably surmised. :lf Plf ,lf "The Green Diamond," a clever and thrilling play written by Mr. Elton. of the Technical Department, and direcited by Mr. Stewart, was the second play pre- sented under the auspices of the Literary Society. To say that lthis play met with instant success from its enthusiastic au- dience, is putting it mildly-in fact, if we may presume, we think that Mr. Elton has out-Edgared good old Edgar Wallace 'himself. This story which progresses swiftly from one dramatic episode to another, takes place in a long-deserted Manor on the sea-coast of England. It is concerned with the finding of a ll in P' E . - ' ' I' 1 C+ A '-T9 N ' c -5 hidden diamond taken from the eye of a Chinese idol, consequently it inflicted a deadly curse on those possessing it other than the legitimate owners, the Chinese. Into the room are brought, in order, a wicked, degenerate villain of a sea-captain with all the earmarks of his calling, in- cluding a wooden leg and an iron ho-ok, the young gentleman of noble blood upon whose family the curse has fastened, and his fiancee, a Chinaman who has been sent by his master to secure the jewel, and of course, the inevitable detecitive from Scotland Yard. All are seeking the fatal diamond which, for t-hree genera- tions, has caused death to all males, be- fore their thirtieth birthday, of this par- ticular English family. Murders have been committed and vengeance wrought, and there is no hope of peace and safety until the ill-omened stone is finally re- turned to China! The stage setting and eerie lighting eiect during this play, the introduction of sudden noises and difficult situations, all added to the mysterious atmosphere of the drama unfolded before our fascin- ated eyes to the accompaniment of those hairbreadth escapes as the panel above the fire-place slowly swung open to reveal a sinister black claw stretching towards the hero, who, in spite of urgent and frant.ic appeal, flung from .the hysterical audience, remained so unaware of danger. And when that weird black bat fioated through the room, our hearts stopped beating. But, of course, the villain was captured by the wily detective, the dia- mond magnanimously presented to the Chinese representative, and the young Englishman and his beloved are permitted to live happily ever after, having no fear of the horrible fate which had threatened them. numb 'Q alll! lim :Willis f ff Q c is mug, A llllllllllllllllllblalll 'H-'Lil i K,,,,,.-- -5-6 ,ill . , 9 1 ,...- sr ' I" i I J , Q.l.fl"' f7'frgI.:sf2?,f M., li if f:i.5,:1gl-up ,X - QQQNY - . , N ' x wi, 1 iff.

M Pad erewski By MARDELL PRATT HE most memorable musical event in Canada during the waning days of 1930 was the celebration by Ignaz Jan Paderewski, of his sevenntieth birthday, in the form of a recital at Massey Hall, Toronto. Toronto has thus been the scene of two memorable occasions in the life of the great pianist, for it was in this city during the autumn of 1922 that he returned to the concert stage, after 'his adventure in Polish politics. In Goethe's words, "one must be able to command poetry:" one must have mind and soul, as well as a supple wrist and pliable fingers, if he would reach the heart of lisiteners through the keyboard. And Paderewski meets this demand, for all who heard his recital declared that he played better than in the previous thirty- eight years of his career, regardless of his advancing age. Paderewski is and has been for many decades the foremost of living Poles in any vocation. He was born at Krulovka, Russian Poland, in 1860. He attributes his talent to his mother, who was musical, and started him playing, when he was only three. His father, for some political offence, had suffered six years' imprison- ment in Siberia. He received his early training at the Warsaw Conservatoire, and after six years, when the Conserva- toire had done all it could for him, he was elected professor at the institution. Later he joined the staff of the Strassburg Con- servatoire. He revealed exceptional talent and am- bition, and wishing to become a virtuoso he placed himself under the tuition of Theodor Lescheltitzky, of Vienna. Paderewski made his debut in 1887 be- fore the critical public of Vienna. At once he was acclaimed one of the most remarkable pianists of the dayg and from that time onward his career has been a succession of triumphs. The following year he played in Paris. The beginning 53 of his international fame may be said to date from his first appearance in London, in the early summer of 1890. English critics at once proclaimed him a genius. Their laudations were fthe open sesame to the profitable field of America. After his sensational success in New York in the Autumn of 1891, he became a world figure. In addition to striking individuality and 'ripe musicianship, he is strongly emo- tional, and possesses that curiously in- definable thing we call magnetism, which never fails to enchain the attenition of the public. His flying aureole of silken hair is in itself an asset. But though the public laughed at jokes about his hair, every lover of beautiful interpreltation gloried in his playing, and his "Minuet" became as popular as the "Stein Song" is to-day. During the season or two which pre- ceded the war, he was a victim of neurosis. His playing became rather faulty, and he often felt impelled to cancel engagements. When the war broke out he absolutely abandoned music and threw himself pas- sionately into the cause of restoring the national autonomy of Poland. He gave away a vast fortune in furthering his aims and succeeded in securing recogni- tion of Polish demands in the Treaty of Versailles. As a reward he was made first President of the revived nation, but soon had to admit defeat. In 1920 he left Warsaw, a sick and ruined man, heavily in debt, the victim of an attempted mur- der. Through lthe generosity of American friends he lived in California until his health was restored. In 1922 he returned to the concert stage. At Massey Hall, where he made his return, he received an ovation that in Toronto had never been equalled for enthusiasm. - if In 1929 he was overtaken by illness again, in Switzerland, and for a time his life was despaired of, but his old ability to "come back" was demonstrated by an absolutely superb recital on his seventieth fi!! if PARA TUS ' " birthday. Paderewski has done some notable things in composition, but it is as the vir- tuoso pianist that he will ever be remem- bered. THE G. C. I. and V. S.

Afllesume of the Qrchestra By MARDELL PRATT HE Galt Collegiate Orchestra, under the capable direction of Mr. Nicol, A.C.C.O., are indeed to be congrat- ulated on their progress this year. Their appearance in assembly for the first time in the new term was a very pleasant sur- prise to the new pupils and an anticipated pleasure for the older ones. Since then they have continued to play at every Mon- day morning assembly. On November 7th, the orchestra broad- cast a skilfully arranged program of widely diversified selections from Tassie Hall, and a great number of people who listened in were agreeably surprised at the talent displayed. Their presence at the Armistice Day Memorial Service added greatly to the solemnity and dignity of 5-1 the service. The Orchestra assisted at the Com- mencement Exercises and the several numbers given were heartily received. It has also played a very important part in all the meetings of the Literary Society, where it has always been persistently en- cored. At every ensuing appearance the orchestra prove that they are getting stronger and better every day. The Orchestra has kindly consented to take part in the presentation of "All at Sea." Much of the success of last year's operetta was due to their untiring efforts so this year we are relying on them to keep up their good reputation. May we add our compliments for their co-opera- tion, and hope for their continued success. 'PARA Tu N C U Lp A A L' PAQATUS . " The History of Music By GLADYS WILDMAN INCE the human voice is older than any instrument the first music was, of course, vocal. Some of the least civilized tribes of which we have any knowledge, whose language is the least developed, have rude songs or chants to express their emotions. These are not exactly what we would call music as, in order to be so, they would have to be rhythmic and have a regularly graduated pitch. However, it is from these chants that the musicians formed their works. All nations, which have the least cul- ture, have definite melodies and instru- ments with which to play these melodies. The fables, which we read of ancient times, tell us of the charm over beasts and trees and stones possessed by Orpheus, of Pan and his pipes, and of Apollo's lyre. Probably the first idea of a wind instru- ment was suggested by the wind whistling through the broken reeds. A person would not need to be very clever to notice that the shorter reeds gave a higher pitch, and what would be simpler than to bind sev- eral reeds of different lengths together, graduated so as to produce a musical scale? Pan's pipes were just such an in- strument and from them originated the modern pipe organ. Tradition says that Mercury finding that fine strips of dried skin stretched over a tortoise shell produced a musical sound, took this as a model for the first stringed instrument, the lyre. However, it is more probable that it originated in the following way: When the poets recounted the great deeds of the heroes of the battle, the warriors in their excitement plucked the string of their bows to show .their approv- al. Some one noticed that the difference in length and tightness gave the sound a different pitch. From this fact, they likely derived the lyre. In the Greek drama, the language was sung or intoned, not spoken. The roofless theatres were enormous, seating thousands of persons and so, it would have been im- possible to hear the actors. The latter often used masks with brass mouth pieces to help carry the sound. It seems impossible to believe that with their keen artistic sense, the Greeks did not appreciate their music more. This music can be understood only in connec- tion with poetry for which it was origin- ally intended. Both the Greeks and the Hebrews derived their musical art from the Egyptians, and it is from their rough instruments and original music that we get our own instruments, from which we take our ideas of rhythm and melody. "All at Sea" HE presentation of the operetta, "All at Sea," by the Glee Club and Or- chestra of the G.C.I., under the direc- tion of Mr. J. L. Nicol, A.C.C.O., proved to be a great success in every way. Loud were the praises given to the whole cast and especially to those who so ably took the more important parts. "All at Sea" is a two act operetta, and as the name signifies, deals with the "nautical" side of life. The good ship, H.M.S. Pinafore, has set out on an ex- pedition to capture the Pirates of Pen- zance. On board, through the hospitality of Captain Corcoran fJohn Thompsonl, and his daughter Josephine fElva Haiselli, 55 is a large party of guests including the Lord Chancellor fGarf. Lorrimanj, Mabel fAlice Iredalel, and Patience fMarjorie Spencerj, who are friends of Josephine, Phyllis fElsie Elstonl, and Strephon CS. EcclesJ, a married couple, noted in pol- iticsg a well-known poet, Grosvenor fStan. Lorrimanl, and the Fairy Queen fMardel1 Prattj with her four attending sprites. Most important of all is the Mikado of Japan fBruce Buchananl, who is studying the manners and customs of the Euro- peans. He has with him Pooh-Bah fDavid Smithjg Koko, who is a Lord High Execu- tioner fTom Stuartl, and his three wards. By a mistake on the Captain's part, Sir Joseph Porter fWendell Cartwrightl, is ,, W TE H 5 SPEQULA left behind, but this First Lord of the Admiralty soon overtakes the ship in his official barge and comes on board with his Sisters, Cousins and Aunts. When night comes all retire except the Police Sergeant CHarold Dandol, and his gallant force, who are to remain on guard. It presently appears that the Pirates have chosen this very night to attack the ship and they soon come swarming over the side, .taking the Police by surprise. The latter yield to the superior numbers and the Captain with the others hastily comes on deck, to find the ship in the hands of the enemy. The Pirate King fHume Wilkinsl, however, proves to be of reasons able disposition and suggests nothing more alarming than ransom for the more distinguished members of the party and a matrimonial alliance between his pirate band and such eligible young ladies as happen to be present. Matters having been brought to this point, all retire again for the night, and this time remain un- disturbed. PARA TUS King. Whereupon the Mikado with great good feeling, offers the professional ser- vices of his Lord High Executioner, Koko, who is sent for at once. But here again are difficulties. Koko, when he learns all the facts, declines to take any official ac- tion on grounds which are unassailable and all are in despair until the Captain suddenly remembers the Fairy Queen! She promptly appears and solves the whole difiiculty, in a perfectly reasonable manner, to the satisfaction of everyone, including the Pirates, and all is Well. As a whole, we had no idea that we had such musical talent in the school. The choruses were splendid, and the diferent parts were well distributed and very ably acted. To put the finishing touch to the operetta the orc'hestra did .their partiby providing the music and accompanying the singers. Much of the success of the operetta was due to the untiring eiorts of our Principal, Mr. Wholton, who gave freely . I 19 7 L 47 I . J ga, L f . ii, 3495 lh , , x f. A . y 22: TQ X li' F! I XV.

Both the Lord Chancellor and the Mikado suggest plans but they are frustrated by the Pirate 56 of his time and experience, making "All at Sea" an operetta of which the school could be justly proud. Mr. J. L. Nicol, who conducted the musical score, is indeed to be congratulated on the results he has obtained. 1 A 1- Of E ..,..... .

Although it is a chronicle of gloom, in the part of Lucia there is an irrestible vocal display and this helps the opera .to retain its place in the repertory. The action is supposed to take place in Scotland just at the close of the 17th century, but it has scant relation to place ACT I In the opening scene, we gather that there is an ancient feud between two noble families-that Enrico, who is in difiiculties, ascribes all his bad luck to Edgardo, whom he hates accordingly. In order to repair his fallen fortunes, Enrico has arranged to give his sister Lucia in marriage to the wealthy Arturo, before consulting her, and is furious on learning from his retainers, Normanno, and Rai- mondo, that she has already given her heart .to the hated Edgardo. Scene II shows us the moonlit garden, and the fountain where Lucia is waiting for her lover. Lucia relates in an elabor- ate solo on the harp how she had lately seen a spectral form appear beside the fountain, which 'had run with blood-an evil omen. Then Edgardo enters only to tell, her that they must pant at once-he leaves for France that night, in a long duet, they plight their solemn troth and ACT II The wicked Enrico forges letters from Edgardo to Lucia showing her that her lover has been fait'hless to his vows. En- rico works upon unhappy Lucia's heart until she consents to marry Arturo. Ar- turo arrives, the guests assemble, the marriage contract is produced and Lucia or period. say farewell. 58 has just signed it when Edgardo makes a dramatic entry-too late.- All are paralysed for the moment. "Ed- gardo! Oh thunderbolt!" is Lucia's strange remark, and the great sextet "Chi mi frena?" begins. The music throws little light upon the situation, but from the words we gather that Lucia's stony despair admits not even the relief of tears, that Edgardo is torn between love and a desire for revenge, while Enrico is a prey to late remorse- Normanno, Raimondo and Alisa lLucia's confidantej serve merely to fill in the harmonies. Edgardo, realizing the hopelessness of his case, flings his engagement ring at Lucia's feet and demands his own in re- turn, then he requests to be butchered in order that Lucia may have the pleasure of trampling on his bloody corpse on her way to the altar with Arturo. ACT III Edgardo and Enrico arrange to fight a duel among the tombs of Edgardo's an- cestors. A jubilant chorus of retainers is interrupted by Raimondo who breaks the awful news Lucia's reason has given way and she has murdered Arturo in .their bridal chamber. Then comes Lucia's "Mad Scene." She imagines the moonlight gar- den scene, and that she is married to Ed- gardo and fthe life that is henceforth a heaven on earth. But when Edgardo stands before her in fancy, she remembers what happened in reality, and when, still in fancy, Edgardo will not forgive her, she dies broken-hearted. ' Edgardo in reality comes to the tombs of his ancestors to fight the duel, but im- patient .to join his beloved, he puts an end to his own existence tFra paco-a me ricoveroh.

The Corps was successful in capturing second place in Military District No. 1, and thereby winning the Second Little shield. Inspection was held on May 9th, Major Jeffery being the inspecting officer. In his report, Cadet Officers' efliciency, Physical Training Ceremonial and Bugle Band are classed as "very good," while Rank and File, and Squad, Platoon and Company Drill were "good," As explained to us by Mr. Wholiton, this is indeed a record to be proud of and in General Remarks Major Jeffery says, "A very good Cadet Corps. Efficient in all branches of training, with a high standard of discipline."

A .1 l practice, the Corps is fairly proficient in all deparltments. . In the Laura Secord competition the team although not as successful as last year's team, won sixth place in the dis- trict with a score of 219 out of a possible 250. The team was composed of Major Dando, Capt. Dietrich, Lieut. Campbell, D. M. Tutton and Pte. Prestwich. The team for the D.C.R.A. Winter Ser- ies is made up of Major Dando, Capts. Dietrich and Kemp, Lieutenants Camp- bell, Burden and Chapman, Drum Major Tutton, Sgt. Head, and Ptes. Coppel and Prestwich. T'he January and February matches have been hel-d and the results show some fine marksmanship. In the Imperial Challenge Shield Com- petition, Dando, Dietrich, Tutton and Prestwich received the rifle with star award for a score of 90 or over out of a possible 100. Martin and Campbell with scores between 85 and 90 received the rifle award. PARA TU5 ' A notable achievement of a member of the Corps is that of Drum-Major Tutton in winning t'he Galer Hagarty Memorial Trophy. This trophy is given for the cadet having the highest aggregate score in the D.C.R.A. and Imperial Challenge Shield competitions, and has only once before been won by a member of the local Corps, Major Alex. Robb winning it in 1927. A church parade was held Sunday, Nov. 10th, at which a fairly large number were present. The Corps also took part in the unveil- ing of the War Memorial in Queen's Square on Armistice Day. The Hon. Don- ald Sutherland, Minister of Militia, was present and the service was very impres- sive. The following day the annual Ar- mistice service was held in Tassie Hall. The Corps is now looking forward to the approach of better weather conditions in order to train outside in preparation for the inspection, which will probably be held some time in May.

Encountering but little difiiculty they came out on top of the light for the Hamilton Cup, defin- itely laying claim to it by virtue of romp- ing home from the K.-W. hunting grounds with a 19 to 2 victory carefully tucked away and winning the group championship A mn-rvs for the second time in two years. With this scalp safely stowed away in the o-ld Wigwam, out went :the noble hunters after a few higher heads and stepping out to meet them with heads flying high came St. Jerome's t.o give battle in the semi- final round in WOSSA. The local head hunters donned their regalia and went out to do or die. They did not die. 'Nough said. St. Jerome's went home itrying to fix an alibi but failing to account to the pow-wow that night how it was that they came out on the short end of 12 to '11 count. It took no time for 'the local can- nibals, oft-times called gridders, to search for better meat. And lo, in the distance their loomed that far-famed tribe of head- hunters who have swept the province from end to end many and many a time--Sain nia. But something slipped up and after one pow-wow and another over a tale since oft told it was discovered that Galt could continue no longer after scalps and must put away their hatcheits for another year, since through one reason and another it was impossible for them to encounter the Western tribe. To make this up though at a "heap big conference" of the mighty chiefs of WOSSA, Galt was pre- sented with medals announcing them as finalists in WOSSA, thus ending a season of easy scalping that will long be told to the papooses in the wigwams to encourage them in many years to come to go out and bring in a good day's hunting as their fathers of many moons ago did. But while the big hunters had good hunting the little chiefs could find nothing and in six encounters failed to replenish the pan- try on any occasion after a good day's fighting, but as the saying goes, "they done themselves right noble." They fought with big hunters time and time again and proved to one and all that some day they will be able .to take the places of the present big chiefs, for can they not point out that some of the big hunters when they were little chiefs, that Kitchener beat them 96-0 and now they come home with many scalps. And so the season's hunting was successful, yea more than that, it was bountiful with the bouquets ll.,-2 gf , ,. -.,... ,..-.Y- f,-- ,, . i-. , Q-5--- .. ,. f f iv' "" ""' "M" - ,,-,.- i -v i i .-.- .i , . ---- ,rv 64 f 5 P5 C U11-' to be tossed everywhere, but here we will compliment the senior coach, Mr. MacLen- nan, to be known as "Mac" for space While we praise him. But no we won't praise him here, words could not bring before your eyes the full benefits of his work. Suffice to say that to him should go a big share of the captured scalps and the mere knowledge that he was respon- sible in turning out one of the best teams, if not the best team that the Galt Colleg- iaite ever possessed will probably be enough for him to smoke during the long -off-season without anyone trying to re- plenish it while he sits at ease in his Wigwam and thinks of the fall of good hunting.

INTERSCHOLASTIC BASKETBALL ITH the one outstanding fact of having defeated Kitchener for the first time in five years, the school's male cage squad finished off a season that was on the whole more or less successful. In the interscholastic series they finished up in second place with two losses and two wins to their credit for their season's reward. In their opening fixture they walked away with it from Guelph after having staged a Dick Merriwell finish. In the two following games they bowed first to K.-W. and then to the Royal City. Just as the curtain was falling for the close of the WOSSA season they rose to unexpected heights and pulled their trad- itional enemies, in the form of Kitchener, down a few notches. Their city league encounters, which were tucked away before WOSSA got going, were if anything more success- ful. They were playing in a larger and faster group and came out of it tied for second place after meeting, and on occa- sions defeating opponents older and much more experienced. 67 The squad:-centre, "Auss" Millsg for- wards, Doug.

In the first form series T1B walked away with that championship se- curely tucked under their belts, while 2B have been declared second form victors. These two teams will declare a winner to have the right to meet the senior champs for the Tancock Shield, emblematic of the school interform cage championship, Ye I' -'4- if 5 P5 CV'-' PA Tusll A WOSSA TRACK AND FIELD ITH 19 records shattered WOSSA's annual Track and Field meet last spring was declared to 'have been the most successful thus far staged by that organization. To give a description of the various records shattered would be tiresome to the reader as well as the writer but let it sufiice to say here that the way some of those former records were ruined was-well-nigh humanly im- possible. Galt was represented by a team of eight members, who, between the lot of them, succeeded in bringing home but 465 PARATUS one point and that a third taken by. Roel- ofson in the intermediate shot-put. The only other point that was Unearlv made" was a fourth taken by Peters in the inter- mediate 220. While certainly not encour- aging, still, when one considers that track is still in its infancy at Galt, it is suffi- cient encouragement to stick at it and hope for the best in the future. The track and field team:-Arnold Bur- den, Laurence Snelgrove, Jack Dawson, Doug. Kemp, George Roelofson, George Egoff and Jim Garden. Coach:-Mr. W. D. E. Donaldson. FIELD DAY CHAMPIONS Reading from Left to Right--Irvine Johnston, Ross Martin, George Attwater, Frank MacDonald, Bob Hughes, Violet Kinder, Madeline Hughes, Gladys Wildman. 'TLC ANNUAL TRACK AND FIELD DAY ESPITE unfavourable atmospheric conditions, one of the most success- ful track and field days was 'held last September with two hundred compet- itors enteredg establishing 24 new record', with the most outstanding event the dash of Snelgrove's to set a new school record of ten seconds flat in the 100 yards. To give all the new records that were estab- lished would be useless but the features of the afternoon's activities apart from Snelgrove's dash of ten flat was his pole vault of 9 feet 9 inches. In the boys' in- termediate class Irvin Johnston caused a mild sensation by smashing the 440, 880, 63 and one mile records to smithereens. In the girls' events 14 of the 24 new records of the day were established, al- though none of them were as sensational as in the male events but rather just a slight lowering or raising, as the case might be, of the former school records. The winners for the various cups Were: Buchanan Cup, Boys' Senior, Frank Mac- Donald, Ross Martin and Robert Hughes all tied. Boys' Intermediate, Irvine John- ston. Chapple Cup, Boys' Junior, G. Att- water. Board Cup, Girls' Senior, Gladys Wildman. Girls' Intermediate, Madeline Hughes. Students' Cup, Girls' Junior, Vio- let Kinder. PARA1' R l C U L. A A pA'gA1'U5 . ' l I' 55. . ' - it - 2 THE GYM. TEAM T the date of going to press the gym. team was still in the making, prog- ressing far enough, however, to have elected a captain, in the person of Jim Peters. Jim was on the teams of '29 and '305 the former capturing the silverware for M.D. No. 1, while the 1930 team was tied with Sarnia C.I. for second place. The gym. team makes but two public appearances a yearg the first being at the Physical Training Exhibition, where they bear the brunt of the work, and are large- ly responsible for putting on the demon- stration. Their second appearance is at inspection when they perform before the commanding officers. The stock of this year's team is rising higher after every practice. They have a strong foundation in some of last year's veterans, while there are some 15 or 20 more prospects to fill in the gaps left by those of last year's team, who have grad- uated. Mr. Boyd is training the team while for two days -of every week during February the team was under the able direction of Q. M. S. Instructor Husher, D.C.lVl., from headquarters staff of M. D. No. 1. Q.M. S. I. Husher has done much to whip the team into shape and with a boost such as this the gym. team's chances of pulling up into the premier position of M.D. No. 1 are once more rapidly shooting up. KING: SPO X gg il Physical Education DUCATION of various kinds is essen- tial to the individual in order to live life successfully. In this Physical Ed- ucation has a larger part to perform than most people realize, because it deals with more sides of one's nature than the purely men-tal. To enjoy life and to live intensely, one must be physically able. Otherwise the mental and emotional strain of living in the present-day world would become too 69 great to maintain. This reserve of physi- cal health, which is so necessary, accum- ulates most speedily from regular partic- ipation in recreative sports. Then the mind ceases to turn inward upon itself, the mental tension is lifted, and all the senses become more alive. One begins to enjoy living because the worries of a tiny personal world are lost in the many inter- ests of a world outside oneself.

Guelph started the game by scoring the first basket but Galt soon rallied and from then on held the lead. With three minutes to play the score was 30-28 for Galt, Guelph secured the ball three times but alas three times they failed to score. Then the ball jour- neyed into the hands of Elsie Keffer and from there into the basket. Betty Hall- man put the score up to 33 by one of her neat free throws. 715714714 Galt vs. K.-W.-At Galt On Jan. 30 probably one of the most exciting games that has been played in this league for some time took place in the G. C. I. Gym., when the K.-W. girls played Galt. This was the game that Was to decide which team should hold second place in the league and the K.-W. girls have this privilege by a one point lead. This is the first time in a girls' game that the G. C. I. girls have had to play overtime. The score at full time was 24 each and then after 5 minutes overtime the K.-W. girls Won. The final score was 29-28. T2 THE GIRLSf GYM. TEAM The majority of this year's gym. team are girls who were at one time or another on some other gym. team. This alone speaks well for the team.

Every boy was in his uniform Running around with zest, The coach was on the campus Without his coat and vest. And he was yelling orders, And feeling pretty peevedg He said, "You good-for-nothing bunch Have completely gone to seed." Pale, then, grew the players' faces, And roused was their ire, To them it seemed their honoured coach Was nothing but a liar. For then a catastrophe occurred, Before the public eye, When eighteen boys jumped on the coach, Who collapsed with bitter sigh. They carried 'him from off the field, With sad and muflled tread, For they believed that then and there, Their honoured coach was dead. But by means of fanning on his brow, And water o'er his head, The dear old coach came to at last, And this is what he said- "With you many weary hours I've spent, In classroom and on field, And for you as far as I'm concerned, In Latin your doom is sealed." 75 f SP5 Q vm. But then the captain spoke up and said, "To you it may seem funny But we were just obeying orders, 'Cause you said 'tackle the dummy'." Chorus Swinging on the dummy, Underneath the tree, You and I together, How happy we will be. But there will be an undertaker Waiting there for me, When I'm through swinging on that dummy, Underneath the tree. .!. .v. .,. 4. ,xc CONVERSATION BETWEEN A TECHO AND A MATRICER fThe day after the Tech.

Why there was even a bat flying around up above. It didn't fly but it went back and forth." Matricer-"Go back to the machine shop you monkey wrench. You haven't got a chance to Win the prize with that series of misrepresentations you called a play. Now take that play of ours for in- stance-there's a masterpiece for you. It had colour, feeling and depth." Techo-"Yeah, it went down so deep it lost its self respect-that play of yours didn't have any action, excepting a guy jumping around like a clown. But he was just acting natural. The whole thing was just a bad case of delirium. And as far as machine shop goes, we at least take hold of things, all you guys do is juggle a lot of x's and y's around. And Latin, wow! You poor beggars look as if a steam-hammer had hit you when you come out of a period of that stuff." Matricer-"Is that so? Well all you guys do is make a lot of 'holes in things and then plug them up again. What's more, I'll bet you couldn't find the locus of a point if it was on the end of your nose. Any half-wit can make a lot of noise if they let him loose in a machine shop with a lot of hammers and stuff." Techo-"Oh, go and take three pills and pull out of the trance."' Matricer-"Go and hunt for a green diamond in a haunted house."

Observation-First stude Q18 years of age? borrows a dime and gets into the show on a kid's ticket. Second stude at- tends aforesaid funeral. Next day both names appear on slip. Both studes go to office. Both have forgotten notes. Secre- tary says studes must see principal. First stude says he was sick. Second stude says "I had to attend my grand-father's funeral." Principal releases first stude, telling him to bring his note fwhich he does notl, and to second stude he says, "Aha! a very likely story. You expect me to believe the old gag, eh ?"

'war brought io Europe by ihe Arabs UGAR cane probably originated in India or eastern tropical Asia where it had been cultivated from great antiquity. It was brought Westward and introduced to Egypt, Sicily and later to Spain, probably in the 8th century, by the Arabs who also preserved the arts of medicine, mathematics, astronomy, etc., for us after the downfall of the Roman Empire. Don Enrique, Infante of Portugal, surnamed the Navigator I 1394-14601 introduced the sugar cane in the Madeira Islands. lt was taken to the Canary Islands in 1503. thence spread to Brazil and I-layti early in the 16th century and from there to Central America. The purest and finest cane sugar, only, is used in making Neilson's Chocolates. Nuts, the pick of the crops in Spain and other countries, luscious raisins from Australia, oranges from California, oranges and lemons from Sicily and other sunny lands, cherries from Italy, pineapples from Hawaii-everything good is brought to us to choose from. Using the skill of a lifetime, our own experts put all these delightful things into Neilson's Chocolates-which come to you in many delightful assortments from 60c. per pound and up. 0ELUi555 C0lilTE.i X I Chocolates SP5 Q U11-' WA Tu A PARA Tvs Htrturia Qlnllvgv 1836 IN THE 1931 UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO N one of the Federated Colleges in the Faculty of Arts of the University of Toronto, Victoria College enrolls students in all courses leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce and preparatory to admission to the schools of Graduate Studies, Divinity, Education, Law and Medicine.

We are experiencing "a feeling of sadness that is not akin to pain" at leaving our "kindly mother," but with it comes an excitement at stepping forth into another world. Hitherto we have enjoyed only privileges but now we shall begin to attend the school of experience. The five years spent in this Collegiate Institute have changed our entire outlook on life. When first we entered these halls of learning we were filled with awe at something altogether foreign to public school. We were cowed by the grandilo- quent manners of those older t'han WG, and for a time, were overjoyed when they consented to bestow passing glances upon us. But our timidity vanished presently and we too began to join in the "Jest and youthful jollity, A Quips and cranks and wanton wiles, Nods and becks and wreathed smilesf' Throughout the years we have taken increasingly great interest in the life of our school, and we have grown to love her and to revere her records of the past. We hark back to the days when she had her beginning in 1852, under the leader- ship of Michael Howe. Co-education was not yet established and then and through the long principalship of Dr. Tassie only the hum of boys' voices sounded in the corridors and classrooms. Tassie's Apes led a school life very different to ours of to-day. They learned their lessons in the shadow of the ferrule, and grew up as sons to the noble master who taught them. Their leisure hours were times to spend in joyous abandon on the playing-field, showing their skill in cricket, football and baseball--sports which have givem place to our more glamorous rugby and basketball and gymnastics. They shamed not to battle with bullets of snow in the army of king winter, and when colds gripped them Mrs. Tassie was at hand with potent remedies to minister to their needs. 82 Mr. John Bryant, the next headmaster, was an advocate of modern methods. He closed up the girls' school down town and henceforth boys and girls were instructed under one roof. Competitive sport was emphasized and our rugby teams' first ofiicial ancestors was made in the form of cracking football teams. Another school activity begun in this regime was the Literary and Musical society, which re- tains its original vigor and freshness for our benefit to-day. In 1899 Colonel A. J. Oliver organized the 21st Cadet Corps, and boys were trained to take part in the defence of their country should their servioeqs be needed. The Cadet Corps fills an import- ant place among our curricular activities. In the years of the Great War the boys and girls of this school played their part in the struggle and we pause here to re- vere the memory of forty-eight of ,them who died for freedom. We have passed during our high school days from childhood to young manhood and womanhood. The sheer joy of living still permeates our beings and we realize that our childish ideas and illusions have been changed and that now we are learn- ing to think. Mathematics has taught us to combine facts and produce new truthg Languages have taught us precision and History has inspired us, to reach up to the stars and grasp them to ourselves. Friendships have been formed in this half decade, which shall never fall away into ruin. We have here found compan- ions who are ever sympathetic, and lov- ing and kind to us both on the faculty and in the bodv of schoolfellows, whose friendship has helped and inspired us to greater heights of ambition. We have come now to the parting of the ways. We have clung together as schoolmates for five happy years, b'ut at last each must seek his own task in the business of life, and carry on his en- deavours away from his fellow students, under the guidance of the hand of God.

The form left the school in small groups, the more fortunate ones riding. After choosing two teams we played ball till it grew too dark to see Betty's fast balls and then adjourned to a nearby woods where a great fire of stumps was built. Here games were played until the hot dogs and coffee were served, followed by marshmallows and pie. As the fire died down we Went to the house, where the games were resumed. On the whole the evening was a decided success. 345513 On Friday, December the twelfth, nine- teen hundred and thirty, Form 4A met at the Curling Rink for our second class party. The ice was in fairly good con- dition and if the posts had not been so close together we would have had a per- fect night. We were accompanied by Miss Carter, Mr. Challen, and Mr. McLennan. When everyone had skated as much as he or she wished we abandoned the curling rink for a new source of entertainment. Refreshments were served at Palmer's and the 4A appetites bore witness to the taste of the lunch. Before going home a little singing was tried, with Tait as choir leader. We got as far as, "Three Blind Mice." Then we said, "Au Revoir," and packed our memories of 4A's skating party away till another time. 84 THE 'WITCHES' CHANT Round about the cauldron go, Mathematics you must know, Let 'X' equal the cold stone- When will 'Y' be thirty-one?

H. 4B THE SAD FATE OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS The other day, June 32, 1603, Christo- pher Columbus fnot the Arctic explorerl, who spent a week in Preston last Sunday at the home of his sister-in-law's brother, was suddenly attacked in the van by Cannibals, in one of the dark alleys of that city. As has been mentioned above Christo- pher, as he is sometimes called, was foully placed in a tail-spin by barbarous Preston onions. But he bravely drew his derringer and stabbed the foremost of Caesar's flatfeetg but he was finally forced to bale out in a parachute when his horse was shot from under him. Chris., as he is sometimes called, tried to make a get-away, using two Austinettes for roller-skates, but forgot his shoe horn and was overtaken and tripped by Caesar, leader of the brigands on a tricycle. There ensued a violent argument, in which Col., as he is sometimes called-maintained that Latin should not be taught in High School and Caes. agreed that it should. The. Specula Galtonia begs to inform you that with regard to your letter of the 15th inst, Columb.-as he is sometimes called, carried the ayes in the dispute, who sig- nified in the most unusual manner. Now if you three listeners will stay awhile we will continue with Act. 3, Scene 4: Caesar became vexed at this so he seized Bus.-as he is sometimes called- and attempted to plant him in a sewer but it was too small. After rolling in the gutter for a while Lumb.-as 'he is sometimes called-got up and nonchalant- ly lighting a Murad proceeded to dust 86 the dusty dust off his coat, then said in a deep voice: "Unhand me varlet," but Julius thought otherwise and said, "I ain't gonna do it." His tribunes then seized Stopher-as he is sometimes called-and carried him in pieces to the enemy's dug- out. Here Caesar and his first mate de- cided upon torture. Top-as he is some- times called fofr short-wqas then rbi-ed down and the radio was tuned to where "Rudy" Fraser and his Collegiate Synco- pators were playing the "Stein Song." Poor Columbus lasted- for exactly 15 min- utes and 42125 seconds, when the agony becoming too great his mind gave way completely and when Caeser entered he was playing "You're Driving Me Crazy" on a Jew's Harp. The last heard of hapless Christopher he was living quietly in Hamilton and eating Alphabet soup every day so that he could become a man of letters.

We certainly picked on a very popular night for it though, because, be- sides us, there were three other forms from our alma mater who seemed to think it an ideal night for a skating party. As we were the favoured form we had suc- ceeded in renting the upper part of the Curling Rink, where we were holding our party and here we met at ten o'clock to enjoy the "dainty refreshments" fsounds like the social and personal columnj which the girls had supplied. As proof that we-all had a good time, we're eagerly awaiting our next party, where we may learn what happened to all the olives. all ik if In French class one day Miss Carter evidently decided to turn the tables and make us ask her questions in French. The first person she asked was Rolly. After a long pause our great athlete asked "Qu' avez-vous l'intention de faire ce voir?" But Miss Carter, not wanting to reveal secrets, replied: "J'ai l'intention de m'amuse." So George pressed his question no further. IS IT THE FALL FEVER? Sometimes in the fall my fancy Turns to things so very odd, And this year I shall breathe a secret- It's turning to the rugby squad. ,Now you may think it's silly ' And you may think it's queer, But all because of injury I've lost my heart I fear. But, really, it is tragic, And certainly it's not fun To be in a dilemma As not to know which one.
