We wonder why Nelson Bond does not
go on the stage, because we feel sure
he could burst into tears as well as faint
in English period.
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.
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
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
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.
Duncan informed us in a Grammar period
that the Plural of solo is duet.
Miss Goldie-"Yes, when she plays she
seems to strike a dominant note in me."
Miss Horsey-"Oh, you mean Flat."
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.
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
Ladies and Gentlemen-This is station
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
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
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.

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,"

opposing teams of gladiators into the

the well-known bootleggers' song-"You

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

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-

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

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

of fame and has landed on the second
rung by winning the Championship for
first formers. Captain Jean Evans cer-
tainly is a hot player and is supported by
an able team. One of these days the

the babies of a few years back and then

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-
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
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
ft . -
make you dwindle, alike in intellectual
and moral stature beyond your darkest
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
To that mysterious realm where each
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-
Approach our grave like one who Wraps
the drapery of his couch about him
And lies down to pleasant dreams."

C3 WEINER ROAST
We held our Weiner roast on Wilks'
Flat. 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.

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

The Modern Aeroplane
HE ae1'oplane of to-day is probably
the most refined engineering structure
of the time, and to the average per-
son the principles of construction may
appear to be very complicated. 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
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-
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
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

had to build their own equipment their
number has grown to about twenty thous-

To make Television really practical
some means of transmitting two-dimen-

solid objects could be transmitted.

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.
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
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,
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.
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.
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.

What is first aid?
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
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

Drafting is a very interesting subject
An artist paints his pictures and other
things as they appear to him, but a drafts-
man draws his work as it really is. 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 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
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

fr House in one corner of the main floor. 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

Cocoa,Beans were usedas olzey
HE value of the cocoa bean was
appreciated in Mexico long before
the discovery of America. 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.
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
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.

PECULA GALTONIA! Watch-tower of Galt! That prompts fthe
question, "Watchman What of the Night?" 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
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."

The Specula Long, long ago when Horace gave his excellent advice, "Ye
who write choose a subject suitable to your ability," he
could not have foreseen that in future times poor mortals, such as the editors
of your SPECULA GALTONIA, would be conscientiously racking their brains
for a few suitable words to pass on to the student body of the Galt Colleg-
iate Institute and Vocational School. 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
Pewerug U A A Pnnvvsn "
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."

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
"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.
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.

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,
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
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,
1 ... ff u -
'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
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
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
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.

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
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.

"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

let's shake hands and be friends."
"Well," conceded the. boy, "if Toby's a hound, he's a good old hound

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.

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 ?"

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."

shafts, and pull the carriage out. We'll have to be quiet in the drive, but
as soon as we get the old shay on the road, we'll go like wildfire."
Geoff.-"Good boy, Dick, count on me."
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.
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.
Mrs. Tassie-"Before you go, William, please take the cat to the barn.
He drank half the pan of cream I had in the cellar to-day, and I won't have
him in the house another night."
Mr. Tassie-"Yes, I will take him : come pussf' tHe picks up Thomas,
who is rubbing against his leg, and leaves the roomj.
Again my imagination waves its wand, and the scene changes. 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. In the
background I distinguish the outline of the Head's carriage.
Dick fmopping his forehead with a huge handkerchiefj-"Phew, many
more pulls like that would about do me up-I'm tired."
Fred-"And ready to eat."
Jim-"Where's the stuff, Dick ?"

Dick-"Catch-what'll we sing?"

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

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
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".' Then I understood l"

Like some young cypress, tall, and dark, and straight,
Which in a queen's secluded garden throws
Its slight dark shadow on the moonlit turf,

is the well deserving winner of the coveted Thomas Porter Scholarship for
School Captain in nineteen thirty-one.
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

Mr. Dando has earned for himself, through the years, something of
the reputation of Peck's Bad Boy. 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
"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."

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-
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
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-
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
' b ' T"T ,

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.

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
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
.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.

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 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
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
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
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
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.

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

There's a river winds through an old Scotch town,
A river with many a bend,
A river of many a lilting splash
Of hasty turns and sudden dash,
A river of eddies where currents clash,
E'er it reaches its j ourney's end.
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"

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.

and once past Janet and Hume at the

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
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.
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

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,

three. Rest assured that when "Galt" was

Star, and the other on Humour by the in-

spoke briefly on paper layout.

received a thousand and one new ideas

embodied before you.
Friday afternoon, after the session, we
went through MacLean Publishing House,

different pages are arranged in proper

and some went to the Rugby game while

links of affection were firmly welded be-

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-
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-
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.
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.
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-
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'

in gymnastics in excellent style. Much
credit was due to Mr. Donaldson and Miss

AY 9th. 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.
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-
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
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
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

Tensile Testing Machine Received by School
NEW piece of apparatus has been
donated to the school to further the
study of Mechanics among our
budding engineers. 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
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."
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
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-
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- .
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-
: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
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
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

"Music is the universal language of all mankind." M
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-
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
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
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.
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

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
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.

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
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-
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,

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-
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

When morning breaks the Captain,
Lord Chancellor and Sir Joseph call a
conference of prisoners to devise ways
and means to extricate themselves from
their difficult situation. Both the Lord
Chancellor and the Mikado suggest plans
but they are frustrated by the Pirate
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

Lucia Di Lammermoor-Qpem
Music by Donizetti. Words by Cammarano.
UCIA'S tenor solo, sextet, and its flute
obligato gave the cognascenti some-
thing deserving of their enthusiasm
when it was played at Naples, London
and New York. 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
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
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
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
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.
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

S the largest boys' organization in the
school the Cadet Corps has once
again proved itself to be also one of
-the most active and successful organiza-
tions taking part in school activities.
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

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.

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

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.

The Corps also took part in the unveil-
ing of the War Memorial in Queen's
Square on Armistice Day. The Hon. Don-

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

Three cheers for Mac, hip, hip, hurray,

NFORCING their superiority over all
their opponents, the local senior grid-
ders went 'through their whole season
with not a loss to their discredit and with
only one touchdown scored against them,
according to the score book. 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
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

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

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
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.

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,
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

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

to the fact that the girls were more fam-

and only victory. 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-

'Twas a boiling afternoon,
In the autumn of the year,
The day before a strenuous game,
And the team was full of fear.
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."

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.

rush out of the back door of the machine
shop, and head for the river bank. One
of the stalwart first form technical men
had the presence of mind to run after
him and leaning over the edge of the

himself headlong over the high precipice
in a frantic effort to save his beloved
teacher. Was he in time? Yes-just in
time-Ito see "Pop" dexterously scrape

E, the graduates of the Galt Col-
legiate Institute for 1930, stand
before you to-night with mingled
emotions. 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
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.

4A Form News
The first number on the social pro-
gram of 4A was a Weiner roast, held at
Ross Chapman's, quite early in the year.
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.
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.

THE SAD FATE OF CHRISTOPHER
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
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
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.

Form News of 3A
One day our form was late in getting
up to history class.
Mr. Hale-"Why is this form tive niin-
Miss Sheldon-"Please, sir, Miss Mc-
Lachlan was late and we had to wait until
she had marked the attendance."
Mr. Hale-"Well, tell her she should
trade in that second hand car."
fHowever Miss McLachlan may fool us
and trade it in for a nice little tri-motor
This year our form party was a skating
party. 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

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

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.
'Cause when I set my affections
In any definite way,
Another makes a touchdown,
And again my fancy strays.
For surely it's beyond compare
This rugby squad so bold,
With anything that's ever been
Not e'en the knights of old.
But now l'm plunged in deepest gloom,
For rugby can but cease,
And though my happy days are o'er
My heart will have some peace.
-And from our form ccmes the captain
of the Junior Rugby Team, captain of the
Boys' Basketball Team, captain of the
Boys' Gym. Team, and captain of the
Girls' Gym. Team. Really awfully ath-
letic, eh, what?

Roelofson thinks that Miss Carter is
Scotch because she is always asking for
"free translations." q
I Now we understand Ilea Lucas' mark
Mr. Hale evidently does not approve of
Our Marion Laing has singular powers
of attraction. We have Munroe Fraser
frequenting the spare room now instead
of the lunch room.

apologies to Mr. Hale, who cancelled two
other engagements to attend one of our
parties. We will have to see what can
be done about arranging one which will
not fall through.
We have decided to take up a collection
and buy Cartwright a rope as he is very
fond of skipping.
Marion Webb seems to have gone wild
lately as she has been seen riding around
in a Chev. coach.
