Garden, Principal The Varshicom will preserve for you some of the happy memories of associations and scenes of this year at Mount Royal College. How swiftly the time has passed! Another College year, with ail its hard work, friendships and fun has become history. May your lives be richer, nobler and happier because of all that this year has meant to you. Some of you will go forth to take your places in the world of human affairs and we desire for you real success. Others will go on to higher institutions of learning and to those our best wishes are also directed. This is a day that is in great need of uni¬ versity trained people. We know that only through study and knowledge can we dispell misunderstanding and bring about real peace between men, neighbors and nations. We need to know more about more things in order to achieve understanding than was neces¬ sary for the fathers of Confederation, and with our knowledge must come a new idealism and devotion to the best interests of mankind. We sincerely hope that all our graduates may respond to this call for a nobler quality of personal and national service and carry something of the royal spirit of Mount Royal College into the work of the wider world. As another year becomes part of the history of Mount Royal College, it is my hope that it may not be unworthy of those who have gone before and in some small measure at least, it may be equally worthy of the future for which we dream and hope and plan. JOHN H. GARDEN, Principal. COLLEGE, CALGARY PAGE 5 DEDICATION Mrs. Irene Stevenson Layton Mrs. Layton, better known as Mrs. " Stevie, " will leave M.R.C. at the end of this school term, after be¬ ing with us for five years. During these years she has participated in college- life by serving in the capacity of Dean of Women, teacher and all ' round friend. This cheerful lady was born in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, and has since travelled the width of the con¬ tinent, ending her roaming in Calgary. Her teaching experience includes such spots as Sydney, Nova Scotia; Coleman, Pincher Creek, and St. Hilda ' s School for Girls. At St. Hilda ' s she also filled the role of Dean of Women. Mrs. " Stevie " has been a true friend to all the girls in the dorm. Her patience, understanding and lively sense of humor has bolstered her popularity in student opinion. Whether it is a " Where ' s my corbin- master key? " or an " Everyone up for breakfast! " her voice, though authoritative, carries a hint of humor. Mrs. " Stevie " has been a constant guide and a friend to confide in these five years, and the College will miss her indeed. We would like to dedicate this year book to Mrs. " Stevie. " With it goes the sincere thoughts from the student body and best wishes for a very happy life. PAGE 6 MOUNT ROYAL DR. JOHN H. GARDEN Principal ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF REV. W. J.

Only a few years ago, it seemed that we would never reach graduation. Now tonight we bid adieu to the schooldays that have been all too short. Two of the most important factors contributing to our success are our parents and teachers. They went through many trying times to see us through and we would like them to know how much we appreciate their efforts. to those So we leave the College with regrets for the passing of our school years and with gratitude and thanks who have helped and encouraged us along the road of learning. May we bring honour and credit to Mount Royal College in the years to come, to say goodbye. Thank you, MARGARET ROBB. Now we would like PAGE 10 MOUNT ROYAL VARSHICOM STAFF MARGARET ROBB — Editor HEATHER SCOTT Biographies CHARLOTTE WRIGHT — Advertising JERRY SINCLAIR — Art EVELYN JACKSON — Social JEAN KERRY — Humor EFFIE MELIDONIS — Assistant SHARON GILMOUR — Girls’ Sports LOU STEVENSON — Boys’ Sport§; AL BELINSKI — BILL HALLIDAY — Photography. COLLEGE, CALGARY PAGE 11 1 - ■ Jl _ STUDENT UNION __ PRESIDENTS ' MESSAGES " All good things must come to an end. " Most of us at present do not feel this way about college until we have passed commencement day and have gone out on our own. But eventually we all realize that our college days were one of the good things in iife. Every year at M.R.C. something new is added or something is taken out of moth balls and given a fresh start, and this year is no exception. First, we now have a president for each semester. I was against this at first, but wouldn ' t have missed my term in office for anything. Secondly, our Cabaret Dance. We had many obstacles to overcome in connection with this event, and the spirit of the students who gave a helping hand was greatly appreciated. For myself, I have never seen a college dance like it — simply an overwhelming success. Thirdly, came the Booster Club, which sponsored the Sport ' s Rally with Sugarfoot Anderson. Due to a little " persuasion " we had a splendid turnout. We were pleased to hear the presses rolling as the Press Club commenced work on a new monthly paper, " The Acquaintance " . We hope they continue with the good work. Then the Drama Club, featuring Mr. Kelly and his famous group of players, has been doing a wonderful job. I wish to express my humble thanks to the Council and the Faculty for their support in a most enjoyable semester. I am only sorry that my days at M.R.C. have come to an end. To the students I wish you every success in whichever field of endeavour holds your future. Adios, Wm. GRANT HINCHEY, • c • a e As June and examination time draw near, I cannot help but feel depressed at the thought of leaving Mount Royal. I, along with many others, will always have a warm spot in my heart for old M.R.C. This year has created for us, many pleasant memories. No one will forget the first performance of our very attractive but very nervous cheerleaders who mistakenly cheered for Joe Bush instead of Ray Temple; nor the expression on Maureen ' s face when she was presented with her gift of monogrammed lingerie at the Engineers ' Ball; nor the " tame " pigeon who went " wild " in the room of one of our cheerleaders; and of course not the raid on the boys ' dorm. The College will suffer a great loss when Mrs. Layton leaves in the Spring, but for multitudes of M.R.C. students the mention of " Mrs. Steevie " will bring back fond recollections of a wonderful lady. During the time we have spent at the College we have not only improved our knowledge, but also our characters. True, we have made many mistakes — I will never be able to forget the time that I used an " ain ' t " for an " aren ' t " during an anouncement in an assembly — but by benefitting by them do we improve ourselves. In closing, I wish to thank the members of the Students ' Council and the different committees who have worked so hard to make our Students ' Union a success; and to express my sincere appreciation to Dean Collett, and the rest of the staff, for their guidance and help. BILL HALLIDAY. COLLEGE, CALGARY PAGE 13 e65a e 5L 2 , ' ean d " Let men only consider: It they would apply only a small portion of the infinite expenditure of latent time and fortune now given to matters and studies of tar interior importance and value, to sound and solid learning, it would be sutticient to overcome every ditticulty. " ■— Francis Bacon, Novum Organum (1620) Now that Mount Royal College is approaching the close of another academic year it may be well for us to remind ourselves that, while separate terms may come to a close, the process of learning never does end. Life in this last half of the twentieth century is far from simple and is becoming more and more com¬ plex all the time. The number of things that we have to know in order to comprehend all the things that go on around about us is tremendous. Without some sense of direction and some underlying principle of action we would be quite confused and. entirely unable to cope with modern life. The actual purpose of education, as a consequence of this situation, is to help individuals to discover for themselves principles of action and of living. We are very much inclined, in this age that is so dedicated to techniques, to think that the end of education is to learn how to earn a living. Actually the purpose of education is to show us how to earn a life. Underneath the variety of subjects that are taught and beneath the numerous activities in which you have engaged in the College is a desire to help you to find out how to live a life that is of value to yourself and the community in which you live. Thus, if you have been able to do this, you will be in a position to make some contribution either great or small to the progress of the world. For we must never forget, despite the complexity of the age and the feeling of futility that comes to us as we look at the forces operating beyond our control, that the future of the world does depend on the individual and how the individual acts. We wish for those of you that will be with us next year a greater insight into what education attempts to do for you. To those of you that leave us this year we commend the thought that continuing education throughout life is one of the most important needs of the day. VC J. COLLETT PAGE 14 MOUNT ROYAL MESSAGE TO 3 . 3 CfineerS Twelve years ago the inquiry of two young men into the possibility of getting the prerequisite courses to the second year of Petroleum Engineering at Oklahoma led to the setting up of a Petroleum Engineering course at Mount Royal equivalent to the first two years at Oklahoma. The Engineering School at Mount Royal was under way. But other inquiries followed. Could Mount Royal College give the prerequisite courses in other fields of Engineering? Investi¬ gations were made and found that it was possible. Now a student may leave Mount Royal College and enter any Engineering Course at Oklahoma in the third year. Students who return generally report favorable progress. We get a great deal of satisfaction in hearing this. We want everyone who leaves Mount Royal College to be a success. That is why we make every effort to cover the preparatory work thoroughly and set a high standard for results. We expect great things from this class and want to keep in . touch with as many as possible in the future so that we can measure the quality of our part in each student ' s preparation. R. W.

In the classroom I meet you as students; here as a friend. There ' s a difference. Here I do not have to raise my voice to call back your straying thoughts from basketball or the fascinating curls immediately in front of you. Nor shall you see any look blacker than the mild expression of inanity which photographers are so expert in catching. I will not even use italics. You can take me, or leave me, as you will. These years I have been at Mt. Royal I have pon¬ dered deeply on the student-teacher relationship. On first thought it would seem that this relationship is of the simplest nature. You (or your parents) find edu¬ cation a valuable commodity and are willing to pay money for it. We teachers are supposed to be able to deliver the goods. More than that: we usually love what we are selling you, and enjoy purveying it. Yet, in practice, it sometimes seems more like a drawn battle. Stern looks, little white slips, and little black marks are the darts and arrows that prick you into action. And the strange result of the battle is that both sides are winners—or losers—together. How could this ridiculous state of things be reme¬ died? I believe the answer lies in our concept of a school. Since the days of the birch rod and the fool ' s cap, a picture has been painted on our unconscious minds of a stern master beating knowledge into unwilling heads. Could we exchange that old picture for the pleasanter one of Mark Hopkins sitting on one end of a log and his student on the other, happily co-operating in the task of developing the student into the most valuable citizen and interesting person he is able to become? For you senior students, from whom I first learned (sometimes by the hard way, sometimes by your kind¬ ness and understanding) what Canadian students are like, I have a rather special feeling, and so I have written you some verses: You who are leaving Mount Royal, What things will you take away? Persistent pedagogue pedlars here Have badgered you with their display. " Buy, buy! " they have importuned you; " The prices are not too dear: Just a few copper hours for lines and planes And a few nickel nights for the sphere; A silver semester for science, And for music a golden year. " Here ' s a bottle of blood from old battles, A shaker of salt from the sages, And a few bright bits of beauty Snipped from the poets ' pages. Here ' s health .in a bargain bundle — Only sports and fun for the fee; Here ' s skill, and here ' s will, and here ' s friendship With a fifty-year guarantee. " And here, in wrapping of stardust, Is the biggest bauble of all; What wili you give me in exchange For this great round conjuring ball? " You who are leaving Mount Royal, How have your purses been spent? Have you picked up any good bargains here? And are you well-content? As you leave Mount Royal College, I wish you all the joy of a rich and useful life. My thoughts and my interest will follow you down through the years. KATHARINE WILLMOTT.

PAGE 50 MOUNT ROYAL MESSAGE TO She (Commercial School 1954-55 Each year, it becomes necessary to say farewell to a class of young people who are graduating, and going out into the world to try their skills against competition in the business world. By the time you read this, you too will be earning your own living and spending it too. Now, you will be acquiring a new respect — maybe admiration — for the people, like your parents, who have been able to take whatever they could earn, and make it stretch so as to provide security for you, and sometimes a few luxuries. You will be under the necessity of learning that, now truiy, your " yea " must mean " yea " and your " nay " must mean precisely that, without the slightest qualifi¬ cation. Then, too, you are finding yourself free to choose, — what you will do, where you will go, and how you will act. It is not necessary for me to remind you that " as you sow, so shall you reap. " You are finding out the truth of that now. But I will add another statement to it. You wili be paid for what you do, from here on. Sometimes you may receive less than the wage to which you feel yourself entitled; but you must remember that there are two kinds of wages, and that varying poHions of your remuneration can be had in happiness and contentment. Do not forget, though, that you do get paid, and be sure that the wages are going to be satisfactory. So, as a bit of farewell advice, honor your parents, keep your word and consider the reward of your efforts. J. W. HEPBURN.

PAGE 56 MOUNT ROYAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC In the past year students of the Conservatory of Music have again made a very good showing. The standard of both the Junior and the Senior-Inter¬ mediate Recitals has been very high. Several have appeared in recitals away from the College. Mendelssohn ' s " Elijah " was presented by the Ca 1 - gary Choral Society this spring in Wesley United Church (the edifice was filled to capacity and many turned away). Our Department of Singing is indeed proud that five of the seven soloists chosen were stu¬ dents of the Conservatory. All departments were well represented in the Cal¬ gary Music Festival and many trophies and awards were won. Students of the Piano Department competed in the Alberta Music Festival, held in Lethbridge this year, and returned as winners. It is gratifying to note that more young people each year, from points outside of Calgary, are enter¬ ing the College for a full time Diploma and Degree course in music, residing in the dormitories and taking advantage of the Conservatory of Music atmosphere which includes the Mount Royal Symphony Orchestra, the College Glee Club, monthly Students Recitals and also, the Caigary Choral Society, which rehearses in our Auditorium. THE MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRAS This year the Mount Royal College Orchestras had an enjoyable and successful year. As in the past, they were under the direction of John S. Bach. Several concerts were given during the year. I he Concert of December IOth, 1954 was a financial as well as a musical success, with a large overflowing audience in the College Auditorium. The traditional appearance of the two orchestras in the Calgary Festival was as usual a highlight in the young players lives. Here again the orchestras came out in front, the Junior Orchestra receiving 168 marks and the Symphony Orchestra receiving 171 marks with some nice comments from the adjudicators about the little ones playing in an orchestra and not able to place their feet on the floor when sitting on a chair. In the second public concert held on May 13th, 1955 a new innovation was tried. That was in having young soloists playing with the orcestra . Young Violinist Faith Robinstone (12 years old) played the last Movement (Allegro) of Bach ' s E Major Violin Concerto with the orchestra and pianist Chris¬ tine Mapplebeck (12 years old) played the second Romanza movement of Mozart ' s D Minor piano con¬ certo also with the orchestra. I would like to thank the mothers and fathers for their patience who come so regularly on Saturdays with their children and listen to me scold, coax and praise the youngsters in rehearsals, for without their good spirit and friendly co-operation these orchestras could never keep going. I also wish to thank the members of both orchestras for their co-operation and friendly spirit throughout the 1954-55 season. We are looking to a brighter and better season, musically, in the coming year. JOHN S. BACH. COLLEGE, CALGARY PAGE 57 Whenever You Travel . .

I, 1954 This was the first big social event of the College ' s season and was a tremendous success. Frank Bailey ' s Orchestra was engaged, and Mrs. Stevenson and Doctor Garden led the Mount Royal College Grand March. Mr. Kelly was the Master of Ceremonies and introduced all the teachers. Following the dance, an enjoyable lunch of long johns and " pop " was served. There was a large turnout, and everyone had a good time. Hl-Y WAISTLINE REVUE Oct. 18, 1954 This dance was sponsored by the Hi-Y and the admission price was one cent for every inch of your waistline. There was a report of strict dieting before the dance. Pete Burns made a wonderful Master of Ceremonies. There were several novelty dances with prizes going to the winners. Although there wasn ' t a large attendance those present had a wonderful time. COLLEGE CABARET Nov. 5, 1954 The Social Committee outdid themselves this time and came up with a dance never tried before at the College. Tables were set up all around the Gym and platters of cheese and crackers were arranged Cabaret style with big bowls of punch alongside. Harold Sharon and his Orchestra provided us with some good music. The Gym was decorated with peach, lime and white streamers. Jim Tattrie was the Master of Ceremonies. There were a lot of novelty dances for which cute prizes were given. A vote of thanks should be given to the Social directors for a very wonderful evening. OPEN HOUSE Nov. 26, 1954 This is an annual event at the College to which parents and guests are invited. Two basketball games between Mount Royal College and Varsity began the evening. Mount Royal lost one, but won the other. During the game, visitors were taken to meet the teachers who were present in the rooms in which they taught. After the basketball game, the guests were escorted to the dining room, where the chef and staff had a wonderful lunch waiting. Next came a one-act play entitled " The High Window, " put on by the Drama Club and directed by Mr. Kelly. The evening was climaxed by a dance in the Gym. All in all it was a lovely evening. CHRISTMAS FORMAL Dec. 16, 1954 This dance was preceded by a banquet for the dorm students. Mr. Knott and his staff went all out and provided a bountiful feast. The table decora¬ tions were both pretty and original. The group that won the prize for their artistic endeavor consisted of Fred Kelly, Marilyn Moore, Brian Cleveland, Elaine Bateman, Alan Gaskell, Marshall Copithorne and Wayne Sibbald. A program followed the banquet. The dance was held in the auditorium. The girls were all very beautiful in their formals. And some of the boys were unrecognizable in suits and ties! It was a lovely evening. ENGINEERS ' BALL Jan. 28, 1955 This was the event of the year. The beautifully decorated Gym was divided into two parts by a small ingenious fence and gate. One part contained the tables on which was spread a delicious buffet supper; the other was the dance floor. In the centre was an oil derrick illuminated by a blue light — the sole light in the Gym with the exception of the orchestra ' s lights. From the candidates (Maureen Davidson, re¬ presenting Stanley; Mary Mackenzie, Kirby; and M. J. Macdonald, Garden) Maureen was chosen Queen of the Engineers ' Ball for ' 55. Her crown was appropri¬ ately a driller ' s hat. She was also given a silver brace¬ let, and monogrammed lingerie (an oversize pair of bloomers with all the engineers ' names written on them.) After the dance nearly everyone went to Chinatown. A wonderful close for a wonderful day. VALENTINE ' S DAY DANCE Fob. 18, 1955 The decorations for this dance were exceptionally beautiful. The orchestra, Bob Allan ' s group, was not so hot, but still quite good. Despite high expectations, attendance was small. Those who weren ' t there cer¬ tainly missed having a good time. LEPRECHAUN ' S LEAP March 18, 1955 This year the faculty dance took the shape of a St. Patrick ' s Day Dance called " Leprechaun ' s Leap. " Like preceding faculty " productions " this was a smashing succcess. The orchestra, " The Rhythm Makers, " was marvellous, and an entertaining floor show was staged by Madame Valda and her froupe. Prizes for the novelty dances were amusinq and dif¬ ferent, to say the least. Thanks go to the faculty for making this dance, our last before graduation, such a super one. EVELYN JACKSON.

Nevertheless, with youthful exuberance we embarked on the project. Immediately, obstacles reared their ugly head. Money. Where was it to come from? By consulting the office, it was discovered that one package of paper cost $2.59 or .259 cents per page. Taking our slide rule and log book, we ar¬ rived at a cost of two and one half cents for each paper. We decided to print 270 papers for a start. That was a mistake, for we sold about I 50. Well there goes our two and one-half cent profit. About this time we were beginning to get worried! The paper not only did not make a profit, but it went into the red. We determined that the next paper would pay for both. It did. Meanwhile, after the Editor and Sales Manager had obtained twenty-five dollars from the Students Council, vague rumours were circulating about in the press club about a contest to boost inter¬ est in " The Acquaintance " . Two papers later, the talk about the literary contest was no longer a rumour, but a reality. The contest began March I, and continued until March 19. On the whole, it was a big success. Twelve very excellent entries were submitted, and it was a very difficult task to choose the winners. However, after due delibera¬ tion, the judges came to their decision: first prize of three dollars went to Margaret Robb, second prize of two dollars was awarded to Nelda Nowlin, and third prize of one dollar was awerded to Evelyn Jackson. ★ Highlights The first edition, published in November, was our first try at putting out a newspaper. Mr. Kelly wrote a very thought-provoking editorial on Totalitarianism, whi ch brought favourable response. In that issue, also, we had a message from the past president of the student council, Grant Hinchey. The November 22 edition was unique. Since the English 20 class usually publishes a paper of its own, it was decided that " The Acquaintance " should print the masterpieces which the class wrote. The only thing that " The Acquaintance " contributed was the sports. The third issue was noteworthy in that we had a letter from a distinguished gentleman, to wit: Colonel G. K. Proudworthy, a personage that we expect to hear much more from in the future. Mrs. Willmott wrote a very interesting editorial entitled " My Chinese Stud¬ ents " , which was very informative. ★ A Word of Thanks The staff of this paper would like to express its keen appreciation to Mrs. Willmott, our very competent advisor. Without her, the paper would not have been a success. We also wish to thank the office staff for their kind co-operation. Miss Walters and Mrs. Bedford were very long-suffering and patient in showing us how to cut stencils and run the Gestetner. In closing, let me thank everybody who has helped to make the paper a success. As Grant Hinchey said, " Many hands make light work. " It was you, the mem¬ bers of my staff, and you, the kind reader, that sup¬ plied the " many hands " . ROY LANGLEY. ★ LITERARY PAGE ( " The Acquaintance " held a literary contest during March. These are the prizewinners and " honourable mentions " ). ★ Description of an English Wood The wood at eventide lies peaceful and still. There is a glow of dim subdued light, with here and there a bar of golden sunlight making its way through the leafy arches. The irregular far-stretching aisles wander between the stately columns of giant trees. A squirrel pokes his head around the trunk of an oak. His bright eyes glisten like coal and his ears are perked up to their fullest extent. By a series of scrambles he reaches one of the topmost branches of the tree. There he rests from his exertions. His gaudy, reddish-brown attire is a fitting complement to the bushy tail proudly arched over his head. Soon he darts on his way again. The wind stirs through the trees. They talk to the wind, and somewhere is heard the sighing of a tree in full leaf. In a leafy glade hides the frail and dainty primrose. In groups, these sulphur-tinted blossoms make a beau¬ tiful floral picture of spring. Nearby grows the wild hyacinth. Its clusters of dainty bells forms a blue mist over the ground. On the hill above the glade, beside a gaunt, flat- topped Scotch Pine, a stag stands silhouetted against ■•■he flaming colours of the sunset. Its head is proudly arched, and its antlers slant as if they were a crown which had tilted slightly to the back. The body is delicately formed, as though its Creator had spent time on this masterpiece and had lovingly molded every curve. Then the animal, after its moment of pause, trots back into the wood. Day is done; night is begun, and the wood is at rest. MARGARET ROBB. PAGE 62 MOUNT ROYAL MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE GLEE CLUB In the early fall the Glee Club was again organized under the leadership of Mr. Harold Ramsay, director of the Conservatory of Music. At our first meeting, officers were elected as follows: Donna Gendall . ... .. President John Hormoth Vice-President Del Fredrickson . Secretary Sylvia Reilly and Susan Mather _ Librarians Our biggest difficulty was the shortage of male voices, buf as the year progressed the boys became more interested. In the late fall, we took part in a program at Baker Memorial Sanatorium. Atlhough our first at¬ tempt, it was a big success. At Christmas we shone forth with two appearances in assembly. Also we took part in the annual banquet and party. This year for the first time the Glee Club will provide the music for the academic convocation. Through the efforts of all who have helped in the Glee Club it has progressed well. May we hope for the same result in future years. DONNA GENDALL DRAMA CLUB This year the Mount Royal Drama Club has been very active. A few but very keen members, under the leadership of Mr. Kelly, have striven to produce some good plays. We succeeded in getting three ready and took them out to the Sanatorium, Wesley Church and the College. The production of " High Window " at Open House was received by its audience with great gusto, and although supposedly in tragedy, was considered a good comedy. The productions " Among Us Girls " and " Home to Mother " were presented in April. ★ DANCE CLUB The M.R.C. dance club was just like the month of March, " in like a lion, out like a lamb. " The club started with a BANG, with nearly 60 members. From September to January, Arthur Murray ' s studios taught the Tango for one hour every Tuesday night. Need¬ less to say M.R.C. now has many Tango enthusiasts. The completion of ten lessons brought the question what next? " The club decided to spend their hour with an informal dance to the music of records. All in all it was enjoyed by everyone. The hard work of the executive was really appreciated. By the way the executive was: President, Charlotte Wright; Commit¬ tee: John Hormoth, Anne Harrington, Bruce Leyland. CHARLOTTE WRIGHT. COLLEGE, CALGARY PAGE 63 Mount Royal College Co-Ed HI-Y Club In September, the M.R.C. Co-Ed Club met tor its second year under its purpose to " create, " " main¬ tain " and " extend. " Meetings continued from Sep¬ tember to May, when we closed our final meeting with some elections for next year. Our program included motion pictures, guest speakers, tours, meetings at the Y.M.C.A., business meetings and discussions. We also had a Hay-ride for members and guests at which everyone had a " crazy " time. In February the annual Hi-Y, Y-Teen Conference was held here in Calgary for two days of learning of better methods, and fun. It included dis¬ cussions, speakers, lunches, a dance and a Church service. The program is wide and is chosen by the members so all can satisfy their own interests. The projects wore also successful. The first one was a candy sale; the next, " The Second Annual Waistline Review " — Hi-Y ' s annual dance. At " Open House " the members conducted visitors on a four through the buildings. In February one night was spent canvassing for the Canadian Legion Polio Fund, for which we raised three hundred dollars. Also each Saturday four members went up to the Alberta Crip¬ pled Children ' s Hospital for a few hours as volunteer workers. Everyone really enjoyed themselves there. The induction service was held in the Chapel on November 17, where the members were accepted into the club and oriented with its background and pur¬ poses. The service was attended by Mr. Kelly, our mentor, and Dean Collett. Following the induction service a social hour was held in the lounge. At the Annual Mid-West Hi-Y Conference, this year held in Regina, next year in Minot, North Da¬ kota, our club received its Charter, and the distinction of being the first Co-Ed Hi-Y Club in Western Can¬ ada. We are very proud of this title and try to live up to its responsibilities. The Conference, of course, was " the most. " Our Hi-Y was good this year but next year we v ant it better. We also need more members -—- members who are interested in working for the club, as well as interested in fun and a good time. Does this apply to you? If it does come to our organizing meeting next September. Help make " 55-56 " the best yet. Executice: " 54-55 " Presidents: Bill Halliday (1st semester); Mary Nel¬ son (2nd semester).

First Impressions The Emerald As I stood on the deck looking at the strange beau¬ tiful sight before me I felt a thrill of anticipation run through me. The call of adventure seemed to be beckoning, as we glided through a narrow channel of rock that formed the mouth of the fifth most beautiful harbour in the world at Kingstone, Jamaica. The water was of a fantastic blue shimmering in the morning sunlight. I suddenly jumped " oh " , it is only the hoarse like horn of the ship signaling the shore. My eyes again turned to the green, mountain-lined shore. A native glided up in a canoe, his chocolate brov n arms and back glistening in the sun, shouting for us to throw coins for him to dive for. The smell of the sea mixed with the odor of rotting fish and unknown flowers now reached my nose as v e came nearer to shore. It truly seemed as if I had entered a strange fairyland from a book. VALERIE YOUNG. On and on it seems to flow, It never stops to say " Hello! " It ' s sometimes blue or even green, In every country it may be seen. On and on it flows and grows, But where it goes nobody knows. Dashing on to eternity Wishing alway to be free. Winter wraps it with the snow. Now this gift we all must know.

T EATON C° ■ ■ CANADA Calgary Canada 2 )irector 5 Student enthusiasm has been both encoura It is the sincere wish of the Department of Athletics to foster a sound and expanding program of inter-house sports. Inter¬ scholastic athletics make a great contribution to the life of the College as a whole, and to the lives of the restricted group of people who participate in the program. They are not designed to, nor can they ever, meet the needs of the great majority of students for vigorous, healthful exercise, fun, and competition at a level suited to their interests, abilities, and available time for recreation. The Department recognizes fully fhe vital role that inter-house athletics should play in the iives of many students, and is prepared to go " all out " for a sane, solid, inter-house program. But it re¬ quires the whole-hearted co-operation of many interested students, as exe cutives, as officials, and as participants, if the inter-house program at Mount Royal is to be one to which we can point with pride. The write-ups, group photos, and candid shots on the ensuing few pages are indicative of an active and successful athletic year, ging and appreciated. To those of you who will not be returning to the College next year, may I take this opportunity to wish you every success and much happiness in the years that follow. To those of you who will be returning, I express the hope that you will once again take an active part in the athletic program. ALLAN J.

Bowling Club enjoyed one of its most memorable and successful seasons under the super¬ vision of Mr. Buttle. Inter-House competition was very keen, as the final standings would indicate. Grand aggregate honours won by Kerby House last year, were won by Garden House this year. Individual team honours were won by " Knite Hawks " (Kerby House), who won twelve out of sixteen games. Members of the " Knite Hawks " were Bud Negrave (captain), Sylvia Garrett, Marilyn Moore, Barb Foster, and Laurie Welk. The team high singles honour went to the " Grem¬ lins " by virtue of a game score of 840. The Team High Two was won by A! Morris ' " Gremlins " with a 1639 total. Barb Weddell walked off with the Ladies High Single and Doubles. Her scores were 236 for one game and 427 for two games.
