GARDEN We, the students of Mount Royal College, have chosen to dedicate this edition of Varshicom to our beloved past principal Dr. John H. Garden. He will long be dear to the hearts of each and everyone of us. a glimpse into the life of Dr. Garden 1911 Student at Mount Royal College Canadian Infantry 1916 B.E.F. France Graduation from Toronto University 1919 First year as Principal of M.R.C. At Brandon he pinned the Wings 1949 a fishing trip to in 1942. Also Squadron Leader on his son John Baker Lake with in Air Force Daughter Mary in Charlie Middle in 1944 4 Taken from an article by Sandy McPherson that appeared in THE CALGARY HERALD, Dec. 24th, 1955 PERSONALITY OF WEEK On Dec. 10, 1955, there was issued from the princi¬ pal’s office of Mount Royal College a terse statement — a new building was to be erected. It was no news to the legion of friends who sur¬ round the genial college head, Dr. John H. Garden, be¬ cause building for the future has been his lifetime creed. There was a time when he was a rising but strug¬ gling young Methodist minister shortly after the First Great War. He was sent to Rockyford. First thing he did was build a new church. A new appointment followed at Pincher Creek. Again a new church and this time the signal honor of it being the first building to be dedicated to the newly formed United Church. AND THE officiating dignitary at the ceremony — beloved Dr. George W. Kerby. That was only natural for Dr. Garden had been Dr. Kerby’s first pupil when they were building and completing Mount Royal Col¬ lege here in 1911. In 1928, still in the ministry, Dr. Garden moved to Scarboro United — and up went another church. After that there was a transfer to Brandon, Mani¬ toba where some renovation work was done, and finally a trip to Hamilton, Ontario. " That was th e end of my building " conceded the doctor, " at least during the depression. " Dr. John H. Garden, pastor and noted Alberta educator, started life on a farm near Aberdeen sur¬ rounded by shorthorns, and grew into manhood de¬ termined to be a botanist. When he was 17 years old his life was inter¬ rupted by an invitation from an ' older brother, James, to travel to Calgary. He accepted and ar¬ rived in Canada in 1910. Like the forward days of 1955, the year 1910 was pretty good for contractors and the Garden brothers decided they should enter the field of real estate. THEY SOLD A few houses, and, of course, they helped in building, some of the homes. Botany was forgotten for the time being and John Garden enrolled in Mount Royal to study architecture. That is where he really became infected with the “building bug”. Actually there was no indication of such a bent in the boy at Turiff, near Aberdeen, where the Garden family had lived for hundreds of years. In that com¬ munity a young boy learned to tend cattle and milk cows, but he also took his schooling and his church seriously. Particularly the church. John Garden attended church in Cummingston where Bruce slew Cummings on the steps of the church. And that wasn’t the only extraordinary event in the parish. " If you visit the scene " , he said, " you ' ll see a big church. " “Once " , he recalled, " there was a fight between the elders and the managers over an organ. The managers wanted it and the elders were against it. " Before the following Sunday the managers had made their decision. They cut a hole in the roof of the church and lowered the organ to its resting place. The patched roof still stands. Deciding to study botany and pursue that course through life went with Garden traditions and John met family encouragement in Scotland when he expressed his wish to enroll at Carnoustie House. After all it had been his great uncle, Sir Alexander Garden who had originated a flower that still enjoys universal popu¬ larity. In his honor it is called the “gardenia.” Then the letter arrived from his brother in Calgary. " I GUESS that was a turning point in my life”, he recalled “for it’s a long way from Aberdeen to the Canadian west”. If there was a hint of the future in the ministry for John Garden in those early years, he gave no indica¬ tions as he settled in Calgary. He met and successfully wooed Miss Alice Fraser, the daughter of Dr. Charles Gordon Fraser, and he began to look with a keener interest at the field of education. With his bride he went east to study for his BA at the University of Toronto. And in the midst of all these well-laid plans he became embroiled in the First Great War, en¬ listing, with other students, in the 19th Battalion. He was injured and after convalescence, trans¬ ferred to YMCA work, attached to the Canadian Forestry Corps. Meanwhile Dr. Garden was to hear the news of his first child, Mary, and a joyful surprise awaited him in England for his wife and daughter crossed the ocean before the end of the war. He had never seen his daughter and Mrs. Garden coached the child on recognition of her father by keep¬ ing a picture of the doctor in a trunk. MEETING AT Euston station, she told the little girl: “Here’s your father.” Mary screamed and protested: “That’s not my Daddy. He’s home in the trunk.” In 1919, after his discharge, John Garden moved to the ministry attending Victoria College in Toronto. The years between the Great Wars saw him taking over new churches and building — building all the time. His family grew, with John, Charles, Arthur, Kirby, and Jean following Mary. Education now is foremost with the doctor and evidence of his keen de¬ sire for knowledge was seen in his children. John is a B.Sc.; Charles, a doctor in Edmonton, died in 1950; Arthur, also a B.Sc., in the research field; Mary is a graduate in science from McMaster College; Kirby also leaned towards the scientific area with a B.Sc. in architecture. And Jean graduated from Mount Royal. When the opening came for a Principal at Mount Royal College in 1942, the name of Dr. John Garden was one of the first to be suggested to the governors. It’s only fitting, though, that he should be seated in the headmaster’s seat in a college, and it’s also fitting that he should have pursued the ministry. For wasn’t there a John Garden who was president of Aberdeen University from 1650-1678? And didn’t an¬ other John Garden lead in a Scottish disruption when the Presbyterian church was founded? And if there is a touch of the romantic adventurer in Dr. Garden today, cannot it be recalled that his grandfather was chief constable in Aberdeen and was murdered one black night by a thug? EVEN HIS maternal grandfather lived to be 100 years old — and re-married when he was 75. 5 Of course there would have to be adventure in Dr. Garden’s life for his family is an offshoot of the “Gay Gordons’’. Dr. Garden has lived a full life — and a life he can draw on for anecdotes by the hour. Harking back to his pastoral days he can recall the couple he married in the Porcupine Hills. At the con¬ clusion of the ceremony he signalled the bridegroom that “you may salute the bride.” “You can picture my amazement”, he laughed, “when the young man snapped to attention and gave her a military salute.” Or later when he was helping to introduce ex¬ perimentation into education with his curriculum at Mount Royal and the college was expanding so rapidly that it was bursting at the seams. In 1948 he called a board meeting, asked for $250,000 — and got it because the people of Cal¬ gary had confidence in this quiet, bespectacled man. Of his school days in Calgary he can sit back and muse happily of friendships that have survived the wear and tear of time. And he remembers all his students for his two greatest hobbies, are young people and religion. THERE ARE some who would disagree with Dr. Garden’s philosophy for he thinks that people take religion too seriously. “They sometimes fail to realize that there is joy in religion”, he said “for religion is life.” " But then”, he added, “many people cannot help that for they commit a more grievous crime almost daily — they take themselves too seriously.” farewell message Your request to write a farewell note for the Varshicom of 1959 is appreciated, but is a rather difficult assignment on account of the host of memories of the past eighteen years that keep crowd¬ ing into one’s mind. However, the dominant memory is of the students who have attended the College during my term of office. The close association of students and principal that is possible at Mount Royal College produces a feeling of intimacy and friendliness. Wherever I go I meet former students, and the warmth of their greeting gives me a thrill of real pleasure and appreciation of the relationship that the College makes possible between us. The Class of 1959 holds a unique place in my life, as you are my last group of students as principal. When I met with you at the first Assembly last September I was impressed not only with your numbers but even more with the quality of personality I saw in you. Your work and loyalty have more than borne out those first impressions. The thoughtfulness and kindness shown to me, your retiring principal, will never be forgotten, and the Study Clock you so generously gave me gives a “tick” of remembrance for each one of you. My warmest thoughts go with you as you take your places in life or go on to further education. It will give me great pleasure every time we may meet in the future. There will be changes at the College in the future as there have been in the past, but I hope it may never grow so large as to lose the friendliness and individual interest in each one which has characterized its life from the first principal, Dr. G. W. Kerby, and the original Board of Gov¬ ernors. The students and teachers have done much to develop this spirit during the years and to build an institution where the best in education is offered in an atmosphere of personal interest and genuine personality appreciation where students are people. Farewell does not seem to be the right word to use. Mount Royal College will always hold a large place in my affection, and as long as I live my interest in her staff and students will be un¬ abated. My best wishes to one and all, and I am looking forward to even better things for the College in the years that follow. With happy memories and deep appreciation of the staff, student s and members of the Board of Governors, Au revoir — not farewell, JOHN H. GARDEN 6 MR. W. J. COLLETT Principal 1 principal’s message - year book 1959 In Ancient Greece every Athenian Youth on reaching the age of manhood and being formally enrolled as a citizen on the rolls of the Athenian city took the following oath: “My fatherland, I will transmit in no worse state but greater and better than 1 found it. I will obey those in authority, and I will ob¬ serve wholeheartedly the laws now in force and whatever others the people may pass. And if anyone seeks to annul the laws or refuses to obey them, I will not heed him; but alone or with many others I will defend them.” The Athenian youth, in other words, promised that he would work hard at becoming a good citizen. This meant that he would refuse to do anything that would destroy the beauty or sully the reputation of his city. In addition to that he undertook to accept the responsibility of co-operating with others to keep his city beautiful and strong. Also he promised to defend his city against any¬ one who would attempt to break its laws or lower its standards. Some people might say that in taking an oath like this the young Athenian was throwing away his freedom because he was limiting his activities. Actually he was enhancing his freedom by creating a situation whereby people might live together in peace and safety. Intelligent obedience to law produces the greatest freedom that the human race has known. Oftentimes when in our College life we have been forced to “reprove” certain students who insist on smoking in the corridors, littering the lunch room, missing classes and committing other misdemeanours, the muttered, underbreath response is “This is a free country, isn’t it.” Countries are not made free by anarchy and license but by a consideration of the rights and privileges of others. In our life together at Mount Royal College we have sought to demonstrate that true freedom comes by the exercise of privilege within the framework of law and order. Not only is this prin¬ ciple applied to the conduct of students in the halls and in extra-curricular activities, but it is an underlying philosophy of all our teaching. We hope that our students have learned the lessons of freedom well and that they are able enthusiastically to endorse in their own lives the idea behind the Athenian Oath. If so we have every confidence that the graduates of Mount Royal College will be the good citizens that Canada needs. W. J.

It is not just this one day of your life in which you are being honoured; it is the past, the present and the future. Since we are living in a space minded age I will enlarge upon this statement in terms of rockets and sputnicks. Before anything or anyone can amount to something there has to be a beginning. In the case of the rocket this involves a fundamental knowledge of the project, but where we are concerned it involves a period of finding out just what school is. You remember those days when we used to sing songs, color pictures and play games — poor innocent souls. They surely had us fooled. Following this there are the preparatory stages. The rocket is far from being a reality. The Government has to give the okay; specialists and crews must be found; equipment and testing grounds need to be prepared; everything has to be arranged to prevent a loss in time and money. As for the student, he finds out exactly what he is up against — school is not a game. The third step in the ladder is the preliminary stages. The rocket must be designed, and tests must be made to see if it will stand up under the conditions to which it will be subjected. Similarly, the student comes up against his first real barrier, the grade nine finals. These examinations are a check to make sure that the preliminary studies are taken seriously, thus, giving the student a firm foundation to stand upon before he enters the last lap of his journey. The rocket is now nearing completion; precise tests must be run; final touchups are made; every detail is checked and rechecked; the rocket is ready and waiting. Likewise the student is given a thorough workout. Test after test, essay after essay, review and more review. What used to be a few minutes of homework a night turns out to be a few hours. Twelve years have faded into the past. Back in Grade One it seemed like a lifetime; now it is plain to see that it is only the be¬ ginning of the end. As the rocket is ready for launching, so are we. Even at this stage there are certain condi¬ tions which could postpone the launching. In the case of the rocket, atmospheric conditions and visibility must be favourable before the final countdown. As for us there is only one simple minor detail -—- the Grade Twelve Departmental. IS THIS THE END? Are we finished in a cloud of smoke and a burst of fire? Only you yourself can answer that question. Like the rocket, our path is uncertain; we move cautiously, for one faulty step could carry us off on a tangent— a misfire lost to the world. At this stage, some of us will conclude our formal education. This does not mean that we have failed, it is just a turn in the road. The world offers many kinds of challenges, and to meet these challenges one does not necessarily have to be a skilled technician. It is what you do with what you have, and not what you have to do it with that pays off in the end. We have twelve years of educa¬ tion, but unless we make use of it, even the smallest challenge will buffet us around like a raft on a stormy sea. Like a ship we must use the sea to ride upon — the sea of knowledge, no matter how infinitely small it may be to which Mount Royal College has contributed. For some of us this is only a point in the line, the next point is our first University degree. Beyond this there are new fields and more degrees. No matter how far we travel, our ultimate com¬ prises only a small segment of the line which extends on and on to infinity. The intelligence we bring to bear in our study varies markedly from one individual to the next, but the variation is a matter of degree. All of us are capable of reaching a higher degree through University training, but many of us will fail to do so through lack of trying. In short, an educated man is a man with eyes in a country of the blind. Today, we the Graduates are being honoured. It is a joyful day, yet we must bid a sad fare¬ well to a faithful friend, to Mount Royal College. Three years ago we were just another group of people signing their names on registration sheets. Today we are one large united family — we shared the same hardships and found happiness in one another, but tomorrow our paths must part. Some of us may cling together, and occasionally our paths may cross, but before you leave take one last look at us as a whole, for tomorrow the group will scatter like a broken glass — never again to be united as one. We must say farewell to our teachers who have served us intimately and faith¬ fully. To them, we may be just another graduating class — many have preceded us, and many more will follow. But to us there is only one Graduation; there is only one set of teachers; we are losing a special group of friends who for the last three years have spent their lives guiding us through one of the finest parts of our lives. As Dr. Garden will remain a living memory in the history of Mount Royal College, so will Mount Royal College and the 1959 teaching staff remain a living memory to us, the GRADUATING CLASS. Chris Arctander JUNIOR COLLEGE VALEDICTORY I am proud to have the honor of giving this valedictory, and I hope I can do it with humility. It is said that, “Faith blazes the trail, intelligence builds the avenue.” We began our journey along this avenue in various High Schools across the continent and now have travelled together for a time here at Mount Royal. Now we separate to continue our studies down different avenues of learning. We, the 1959 graduating class of Mount Royal College are preparing to take our place as citizens in this disturbed and uneasy world. While here at Mount Royal we have had instilled in us a great desire not only for intellectual advancement but, through classes, clubs, social functions, sports and student councils, we have had a chance to gain a true education in terms of cultural background, practical experience, and per¬ sonal development. We, as students, have at times felt overwhelmed when presented with the task of learning so much. At times I think our teachers have felt concerned with our progress, for they know the value and necessity of the subjects they have taught us, and the high standards which are necessary. For this we should give them our sincere thanks. Without their effort, their concern, their untiring work, their loyalty and faith in us we would not be graduates of Mount Royal College today. Mount Royal is placing its faith in us to uphold the honor and heritage of the college. Some of us will continue to other universities where Mount Royal graduates before us have studied with high honor. Some of us will venture into the business world where Mount Royal graduates are leaders in their field. Wherever we go the avenues ahead will present a personal challenge to all of us. We must have faith in ourselves to meet the problems that lie ahead and be prepared to play our part in solving them. The late Sir Robert Baden Powell (Chief Scout) said “No man can be called educated who has not a willingness and desire, as well as trained ability, to do his part in the world’s work.” Our college has given us our training; the willingness and desire to use it must come from within our¬ selves. Only in this way can we find the main road to happiness, prosperity and contentment. Only in this way can we have faith in ourselves. Only in this way can we justify the faith that our parents, our college and teachers have placed in us. Let us face the future then full of faith, courage, hope and steady hearts and a buoyancy and power to ride out the storms of life. I quote: Come, Courage, come, and lake us by the hand Gird us with faith A radiant faith to see beyond the present And guide us into avenues that are yet to be.

Our team at the end of league play was tied with Tech Trojans for top position in the playoffs which followed, Tech emerged as champions. Some special events during the season were two tournaments, one the annual Round Robin Tournament at the beginning of the year and the Tecumseh Tourna¬ ment at the end of the season. The University of Alberta team was victorious in both of these events. A road trip was made to Edmonton where Mount Royal de¬ feated Concordia College in convincing fashion. In the scoring race statistics, Mount Royal placed three players in the top six. These players were Ron Komics who won the league scoring title, Larry Larkam who placed third and Bob Baldwin was fifth. All in all the Mount Royal Blues enjoyed a good year under the leadership of playing coach Ron Komics and manager John Borger.

V dp j [ %1 |k MW »j| K M 34 BOWLING Again bowling got started off on a rolling and clanking success from the beginning of September to the end of March. The turn out was very good with approximately 60 or 75 present. Phyl Allen, who was the master of bowling this year came up with prizes for high single, high double, and high team, which was well earned. The high ladies single was well earned by Janette Longster. The Splits received the number one prize or winning team, and the Pinheads received the prize as the number two team of the year. The rest of the teams did fairly well considering. Congratulations to the winning people and teams of the 1958-59 season of Mount Royal College. left: Janette Longster. right: Phil Allen. INTRA-MURAL ATHLETICS There were four teams in the competition this year instead of the usual three. The teams were Engineers, Bus. Adm., High School team I (surnames beginning with A to M) and High School II (with initials from N to Z). The inter-mural teams were organized so as to intensify intra-mural competition. Under the old house system competition deteriorated to the extent where insufficient players would show up to represent teams. The intra-mural trophies were successfully won by the following team: Basketball _ Bus. Adm. Floor Hockey _ H.S. I Badminton _ H.S. I Bowling _ H.S. I Volleyball _ Engineers Curling_H.S. II A very much expanded intra-mural and school athletics program is on the drawing board for the 1959-60 school year. The sizeable increase in the Athletic budget for the coming year will enable the sponsoring of a definitely improved athletic schedule. It was a successful year and thanks is extended to those who voluntarily helped with the scoring and refereeing. 35 Kent Border Bob Herron FLOOR HOCKEY The rebirth of inter-class floor hockey at M.R.C. proved to be a great success. Commencing the last week in January, the schedule lasted until the end of February. One game was played every noon hour during the week except Thursday. The teams pa rticipating were Bus. Ad., Eng., H.S. I and Fl.S. II. With the need for noon-hour activities floor hockey will probably be estab¬ lished permanently as a means of competition in the years to come. MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE CURLING NEWS Our curling season got under way early in November at the Calgary Curling Club.

The second year engineers did a very nice job of decorating, with brilliant stars and rockets floating (seemingly) unattached above our heads. The ’59 queen candidates .were Pat Jackson, sponsored by first year engineers; Bonnie Dickason, sponsored by second year engineers, and Shirley Nakamura, sponsored by the chem ’55 class. The Queen was crowned in a very nice ceremony (MC’d) by Peter Grosse with him doing the crowning honors for Shirley, which was the climax of the evening. Mr. Knott put on a lovely lunch served shortly after the crowning of the Queen. The band supplied a delightful evening of dancing. Among the teachers and deans attending were Mr. and Mrs. Collett, Mr. and Mrs. Paulson, Mr. and Mrs. Willmott, Mr. and Mrs. Allan, Mr. and Mrs. Feader, Mr. and Mrs. Gamble and Mr. and Mrs. Kelly and others. A very enjoyable evening was spent by all.

YULETIDE RENDEZVOUS Sweetheart of Mount Royal College and her attendants. Gay Christmas trees, soft candle light, and the music of the Foggy Manor Jazz Society set the mood for the “Yuletide Rendezvous” held on Saturday, Decem¬ ber 13th, at the Golden Age Club. Guests were received by Dr. and Mrs. John H. Garden, Dean and Mrs. W. J. Collett, Mr. and Mrs. R. W. McCready, Mr. and Mrs. M. S. Feader, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Hepburn, and Scott Kirk and Date. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of the “Sweetheart of MRC”, Lorna Allison. Attendants were Carolyn Hurley and Kathy Taylor and each of the girls was presented with a bouquet of flowers as well as a gift from the Students’ Council. A buffet dinner, served at midnight concluded a very enjoyable evening. " SWEETHEART OF | M.R ' .C. CAMPAIGN. " Posters were displayed throughout the school preceding the Christmas Prom and crowning of the “Sweetheart of MRC”. Periodical disappearances of the candidates made campaigning a little bit dif¬ ficult which ended in fun for all. On Friday morning, December 12th, an assembly was held and skits were presented by the Engineers for their candidate, Kathy Taylor; Business Administra-! tion for their candidate, Lorna Allison; and the Commercial Department for their ' candidate, Carolyn Hurley. A great deal of fun and laughs was the result of the campaign. 46 ( -I)oRO t Cfeic A Red Cross Blood Donor Clinic was held in the Gymnasium on Nov. 19th, preceded by a hilarious assembly. Much rivalry between Engineers and Business Administration resulted in a good turnout from each faculty. The Engineers emerged victorious and winners of the Bloody Cup much to the distaste of the Business Administration. The Clinic was a general success. A smile of encouragement 47 Don’t be afraid “Little Boy Helpful Boys Pleasant Rest 48 The members of the Excursion and the Greyhound bus met at the school at 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning, February 1st, but made their departure half hour later, after waiting for the Sorokan’s and Company. The Excursion arrived at Lake Minnewanka at 10 a.m. and proceeded to look for firewood, then cooked hot dogs and drank pop. We then went into Banff, stopped at the bus depot and waited for a Brewster Bus to take us up to Mt. Norquay where the more athletically inclined group went skiing and the others watched the jumping events. We left Mt. Norquay at 3:30 p.m. and went to the Hot Springs for a refreshing swim. After leaving the pool we went to the Timberline Hotel and had dinner. After eating we sat around and watched TV, then with permission rolled the rugs back and danced. We left Banff around 10:30 p.m. and arrived back in Calgary at midnight. 49 51 TWELVE Bill Adams Calgary Judith Allen Didsbury James Andrews Millarville Chris Arctander Forest Lawn Ronald Bagg Calgary Dudley Baker Calgary Robert Bahan Forest Lawn Delbert Bailey Calgary John Ball Brant Rodger Ball Calgary Judy Bauer Calgary Robert Baldwin Calgary Larry Bakken Calgary I Richard Beavers Calgary April Beckett Innisfail 52 , i Bennett Robin Bennett Westley Bennett Jeannette Benoit Shirley Beierle C esholm Calgary Airdrie Vegreville Cochrane I yin Bertram I ary Norma Betts Calgary Marion Bicknell Empress Anthony Binfet Calgary Suzanne Blake Calgary I rry Bolokosky Albert Boratynec Kent Border Michael Bower Diane Bown hbridge St. Paul Calgary Calgary Calgary MRichard Broatch Bill Brooker Al Brooks Charles Brown Hugh Brown WCochrane Calgary Edmonton Calgary Calgary 53 Irene Brown Calgary Lome Brownfield Lethbridge George Bull Midnapore Gerry Burbank Lethbridge Harry Burniston Calgary Laura Buskel Calgary David Cairns Calgary Dave Campbell Calgary Dyrl Campbell Calgary Jim Campbell Oyen Terry Chaplin Calgary Karen Carlson Wetaskiwin Dave Castell Calgary Neil Campbell Don Carlson Blackduck, Minn.

The first dance of the season was our “Hallowe’en Hop” held on November 1st. It was a real success with the Corvettes providing the music. A novel idea for designing our school jackets was held this year. The Students’ Council sponsored a jacket design contest, offering a sweater as a prize to the originator of the best design. Judges were Mr. Kelly, Mrs. Sorokan, and three Students’ Council members. This contest had fine participation and Gary Shannon turned in the winning design. The highlight of the year’s activities was the high school’s “Winter Wonder¬ land” formal dance held on December 6th. It was a small dance but all who at¬ tended had an enjoyable time. The music was provided by Dave Luft’s orchestra which won the approval of all at the dance. Another dance was sponsored on February 14th as a Valentine’s dance. Dave Luft’s band again did the honors. Our noontime “shags” this year were quite successful. The purchase of several new records added to their success. The Students’ Council donated to several worthy charities again this year. A large donation went to the Community Chest and a drive was held to give to “Care” which received a good response by the student body. Perhaps the biggest project under discussion this year has been the idea of erecting a Students’ Union building for Mount Royal College. Originating from our staff advisor, Mr. Pitt, this idea has grown into a real possibility. This building would contain a cafeteria, a lounge, and recreation rooms, as well as possibly a few administrative offices. Generally, this school year has been a success socially, and will be brought to a glorious close, with, of course, the graduation exercises. PAT JACKSON, Secretary.

The Red Cross Club started the first semester with Donna Yates as President, Ev Newsome as secretary and Gail Ings as Treasurer. With the money gathered from a penny drive, the club made two Christmas hampers for two needy Calgary families. Early in January elections were held and Sharon Hamilton was elected President, Peggy Hopper, Vice-President and Secretary and Jayne Border, Trea¬ surer. Another penny drive was staged and a number of Health Kits were assem¬ bled. Although the club consisted of a small membership, some good work was done.

Although hampered by a late start, with the formation of the yearbook com¬ mittee the editing of the Varshicom was soon well under way. The high school committee is only a section of the total staff, which includes a Junior College group. Each is responsible for its own portion of the book. The assembling of our section was divided into four parts — class photos, club activities, social activities, and candid photos. Each had a staff and editor. All photos except class pictures were taken by amateur photographers. With the help of Mr. Deutch, our faculty advisor, Mr. Rae, and Mr. Feader, our task was made much easier and our thanks are extended to them. GAIL NAGLE 79 As the end of the 1958-1959 school term draws nigh, the Press Club ‘stops the press.’ The year has seen many fine editions of Collews. This is justly so be¬ cause of the large numbers who were interested and the great enthusiasm shown. The aims of this organization were: 1) To publish a paper once a month, 2) to endorse the literary achievements of the students, 3) to highlight people, activities and occurrences, and 4) to provide a voice for the students. Although hampered by a late start, I am sure all agree that the Press Club was an organization Mount Royal College could be proud of. Editor Allan Garret Asst.

Everyone will remember the fun they had at all the dances. ¥■ Thursday noon at Mt. Royal was never boring for the active folk. The shags held in the gym relieved the tension of the morning periods and made everyone tired enough to sleep through the afternoon. The attendance was not as good as expected but those who did go enjoyed themselves. 81 THE FACULTY RECEPTION The Annual Faculty Reception started the College Social Events with a real ‘bang!’ During the intermission some excellent entertainment was supplied by the famous sleight-of-hand artists, Mr. John Borger; Madame ‘Fifi’ Linton; a renowned barber shop quintet, Mr. Kelly, Mr. Vincent, Mr. Hepburn, Mr. Deutsch, Mr. Ariano and a noted accompanist, Mr. Brown. Jac Friedenberg’s Orchestra sup¬ plied music to please young and old. Dancing, refreshments, and entertainment for the students and teachers made the evening a grand success. They Really Can Sing! 82 They Sure Looked Pretty! CHRISTMAS FORMAL The annual Christmas Formal, under the name ‘Winter Wonderland,’ was held in the Conservatory Auditorium. Dave Luft’s orchestra provided the appropriate music. The decoration committee did an admirable job, as well as did Mr. Knott, who provided the refreshments. This was the ‘high spot’ of the social season at Mount Royal. VALENTINE SPECIAL The excitement of valentine cards with sweet words of care were beautifully offset by a Valentine Dance at M.R.C. Dave Luft played exceptionally fine music which put everyone in the mood. The people who attended fully enjoyed them¬ selves in the midst of the everflowing musical notes and the mound of delicious refreshments. The grade ten classes held two very successful dances on November 21st and April 18th. These were the highlights of the ’59 social year. On April 18th Sharon Fulton, with her two ladies-in-waiting, Jane Border and Margaret Taylor, reigned over the grade ten classes. The delicious refreshments, the good music, the good company and the lovely queen made this a very entertaining evening. 83 QU « m 2? | f V i WfllESBEBBKM Wrr i if 1 W , 4l | r 1 1 Jf J 1 L i | V For it Cleans as it Cleans Your Teeth Bill The Barbarian Christmas Skit f In ■ W ' ftfej nHKBproJH ■§ ■ . ■ f m W■ HP I K f ■ ' j " i |HH| fck M i i A |tA H ' H t- Fo 7i r 1 1 - 5 K ' ;» r d Annie Oakley and Sinbad All Dressed Up and No Place to Go 90 ’rated The Five Musketeers n T rJ s4-T . Editor’s Address It has indeed been an honor and a pleasure to be the editor of Varshicom. Being the editor of the annual on an institution such as Mount Royal is, I feel a real responsibility and I hope I have filled my position in a satisfactory manner. Unfortunately we have been unable to keep up with the schedule set down at the first of the year and once again the yearbook will not be ready before the end of the term. The Varshicom staff and myself hope you find our efforts and work have been successful in giving you a book you will always cherish, one that will make the year 1958-59 a year that will remain in your hearts forever. There have been many interesting and wonderful events during the year; election day, the get acquainted dance, the Sweetheart of M.R.C. contest and dance, the Engineers assembly, ball and queen contest,, the curling bonspiel and many, many others. We have tried to cover every event in this book and we hope we have succeeded. I extend my thanks to Gail Nagle, my assistant editor and the editor of the high school section, for her cooperation. Mr. Feader, my faculty advisor, for all the help he gave me, Kofi Kauratsumara, who took many of the pictures, Mr. Wilmont and Mr. Rae for the information and material they supplied me with, and the entire Varshicom staff, who worked so well. This is your book and we hope you enjoy it. Elaine Hodson There have been several changes in the Conservatory during the year 1958-59. On retirement of Dr. John H. Garden as principal at the end of December 1958, the Conservatory’s affairs have been under the direction of a committee of three faculty members, Mr. W. Knight Wilson (chairman), Miss Mary Munn, and Mrs. Isabelle Logie Herd. This committee of direction carried on in an interim capa¬ city until the end of June 1959. Students in the Conservatory may prepare for examination of the Mount Royal College Conservatory of Music, the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto, the Western Board of Music, and Trinity College of Music, London, England. The Mount Royal midwinter and June musical examinations this year were con¬ ducted by Mr. Filmer Hubble of Winnipeg. The Conservatory’s Department of Speech Arts, which is under the direction of Mrs. Leona Flegal Paterson, also held midwinter and June examinations. Mrs. Hilda Manolson was the examiner in January, and Mrs. E. F. Shackleton conducted the examination in June. Many Mount Royal students were entered in both the Calgary and the Pro¬ vincial Musical Festivals this year, gaining high marks and commendation from the adjudicators. The two orchestras, the Mount Royal College Junior Orchestra and the Mount Royal College Symphony Orchestra, under the very capable direction of Mr. John S. Bach, have achieved a high standard. The orchestras have pre¬ sented two public orchestral concerts, one in the fall and one in the spring. A highlight of the year has been the acquisition of a new grand piano for the auditorium. Student recitals have been held regularly through the year for both junior and senior students in all departments. Many members of the faculty have also held recitals by their own students. Two Faculty Recitals were given during the year, one by Mrs. Isabelle Logie Herd, teacher of Singing, a recital of Scottish Folk Songs, on Sunday, January 25th, and the other by Miss Joyce Orr, teacher of Speech Arts, on Sunday, May 3rd. In order to help raise money for the purchase of the new grand piano, three members of the faculty volunteered to give recitals the proceeds of which would go to the New Piano Fund. The first was a pianoforte recital by Miss Mary Munn, on Sunday, April 19th, and the second was a duo-piano recital by Peter Hodgson and Mary Thatcher, on Sunday, April 26th. It was also agreed by the members of the faculty that funds received at recitals put on by students of individual teachers should also go toward the New Piano Fund. Another highlight of the past year has been the work of the Mount Royal Col¬ lege Glee Club, under the direction of Mr. Dale Jackson. This group has put on several public performances, and also presented a program for the senior citizens at Rundle Lodge, which was very much appreciated. Mr. John S.
