"THE GLORIOUS PRIVILEGE OF BEING INDEPENDENT"
One of the best methods of achieving independence is through a Mutual Life
policy. We suggest that pupils and teachers investigate Mutual Life Pension
policies which provide insurance protection and an income in later years.
Any of our representatives will be pleased to give you full information.

THE NORTHLAND ECHO 13
Since the Northland Echo was pub-
lished in May 1939, the British Empire
and its allies have been forced into a war
to stop aggression on the part of Ger-
many-a war which both Great Britain
and France tried to avoid.
It is both fitting and proper that this
issue of the Northland Echo should be
dedicated to former pupils of our school
who have enlisted for overseas service in
the Army, Navy and Air Force. We are
proud of these boys and of the spirit of
loyalty that prompted them to offer their
services to defend all those traditions of
liberty and democracy for which the
British Empire stands.
To boys now attending the school who
may be considering enlisting, my advice is
that you complete your course before
signing up. The Army, Navy and Air
Force requires trained men. You can be
of more value to your country by availing
yourself of all the training this school can
give you. The more education you have,
whether that education be academic or
vlocational, the more service you can
render to your country. This school is in
the fortunate position of being able to
offer its students a complete course in
either academic or practical subjects-
comparatively few schools in the Province
are as well equipped as is your school.
Remain in the school until you graduate.
It may be that you can serve your
country best by serving at home.
I am not a pacifist but I do feel that
the average boy of school age should
complete his course of study at school
before he enters any branch of the ser-
vice. As I mentioned before, your
country needs trained men, and your
school is equipped to give you that

18 THE NORTHLAND ECHO
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
E. J. Pennock
I have the privilege of voicing the
thoughts and ideas of the graduates who
have received their diplomas this evening.
Tonight, we say farewell to our school.
Most of us can recall some time during
the past few years, if things were not
going just right, when we might have
been glad to have said good-bye to school:
but tfmight. as we are faced with the
actual experience. we look upon our lifc
here in a much different light.
Many things happened to us here.
Most of them were pleasant-some were
not, at the time, but now that they are
memories we can appreciate them for
what they were worth. Let's recall a few
of them now. Do you rememlber the first
day we came to school, proud as pea-
cocks, because we were going to the High
School? But do you remember how
small and insignificant we felt when we
sat here and saw the teachers of whom
we had heard so much from the veterans
of the Second Forms, sitting on the plat-
form and waiting to lead us to the
slaughter? None of us enjoyed school
very much the first few days, but then
someone said something funny in class
and the teacher laughed! Yes, Sir!
Laughed right out loud! Then we decided
that they must be human after all, and
that, even if they were school-teachers,
they weren't bad at heart.
And so our education went on. VVhile
we were wondering why they had mixed
up the alphabet with arithmetic to make
a puzzle they called algebra, and why we
had to write down what we thought Mac-
beth would have done when we were
satisfied with Shakespeare's version of
it, our minds were being unconsciously
moulded and trained in the right
direction. In our mathematical and scien-
tific courses we were taught to think-
to reason things out, to observe, and to
draw conclusions. From History and
Literature we learned the difference
lbetween right and wrong, what to admire
and strive for in character, and what to
detest and shun.
Some of our most pleasant memories
are of our association with the various
organizations within the school. Our
activities in these societies gave us an
opportunity lo play and learn ut the
same time-. Through sports we were
taught to recognize and obey rules and
constituted authority. and to learn that
nothing can bc s u c c e ss ful without
co-operation. Our Literary and Debating
Societies gave us an opportunity to learn
self-expression as well as to provide enter-
tainment for the school as a whole. The
School Orchestra and Camera Club pro-
vided the means whereby those with the
same hobby could get together and really
achieve something worth while. These
various school activities also gave us an
opportunity to cultivate the friendship of
our teachers. The companionship and
good-fellowship we enjoyed with them
after school is something we can cherish.
You all know that lovable character,
Mr. Chips. He was not one man, but a
combination of many masters, with whom
the author had come in contact during
his school days. I believe, and I know
the other graduates do also, that if the
author had gone to this school, he could
have drawn his material from here. No
doubt, he would have had difficulty in
deciding whether to name his product
or "Mi: Chips."
thanks are due to the School
and to Mr. Wallace, and his staff,
for the many educational and recrea-
tional opportunities we have enjoyed as
pupils in this school.
Do you remember that once or twice
a year our principal would im-press upon
us the ,fact that this school was not com-
posed of brick and mortar, but of the
pupils who attended it, and that the char-
acter and reputation of the school was
what we gave it? Let us remember, then,
that as we go out into the world as young
men and women, our lives will cast a
reflection on this school. Let us make
it a bright one.
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF
Four years ago, when a child of ten,
I first saw Canada. I stood on the
threshold of this large, bewildering new
world, with great emotions stirring in my
heart. I was sad at the departure from
my closest friends and relatives who were
now left thousands of miles away. I was
happy over the safe arrival to this for-
eign land. I was excited over the thought
of the coming adventure. Although
Canada in those first few weeks 1'ushed
into my mind with full force and occu-
pied most of my thoughts, Poland stayed
timidly behind, like a beautiful back-
ground to a colorful picture.
At the beginning I felt the pangs cvery
THE NORTHLAND ECHO 19
"green-horn" must experience. The
strange sound of a foreign language
which I did not understand, the foolish
feeling of not understanding and the
awful feeling of not being understood-
all took their turn in forming me into a
Although all those around me thought
very highly of themselves and contrasted
their great intellect with my utter stu-
pidity, still, I believed I could tell those
people something about which they knew
very little-Poland. I could not help
noticing the surprised comments that
were made about our "modern" clothes,
and I soon understood the oft-repeated
questions of my curious Canadian friends,
such as: "Did you wear such clothes in
Poland?" "Did you come in a big ship
and were you sea-sick?" "Say 'hello' in
Polish," or "Tell me all about Poland."
At first the English language was a
puzzle to me. "How can they understand
each other?" I thought, and to spite our
Canadian friends we talked Polish con-
tinually, so that they, in their turn would
not understand. But presently, this fast
jabbering, these groans and squeals took
the shape of words which at last had a
In the street I was utterly lost amid
the great hubbub of traffic. This rushing
ot' cars and people was absolutely unfa-
miliar to me. and I never seemed to get
my turn to cross the street-safely.
In school understanding smiles were
exchanged between the teachers and me,
which at first amounted to nothing more.
Later I found those teachers to be kind,
sympathetic friends who helped me out
of many difficulties, and took pride in
At the dinner table countless adven-
tures were related and as our knowledge
of English increased, English words were
mixed in with the Polish and the Jewish.
Although my great love for Poland will
never cease, part of my love now is
reserved for my adopted country-
THESE LONG-SHORE MEN
tsenior Prize Essayj
Bill Moyer, V Collegiate
About twenty-five miles south of Hali-
fax, Nova Scotia, lies the small village of
Foxe's Point. This is the home of a group
of Atlantic fishermen who fittingly call
themselves Long-Shore men. I had the
good fortune to spend a whole day among
these men during the height of the mack-
crel season, and it is a day that I Shall
Foxe's Point is strategically Situated
in a small bay on one of many penin-
sulas. Here I learned how independent
the fishermen of Nova Scotia are. I was
astonished to see their homes and their
crude clothing, and to learn of the small
pittance on which they live. Their homes
are squat, all-frame structures, built by
themselves and housing no more than
five people. Every last one was sur-
rounded by a crudely fashioned picket
fence, usually whitewashed. There were
about seventy-five such homes housing,
in all, some five hundred people. Their
homespun clothing made up of a giant
black sweater, a pair of coarsely patched
pants, and a pair of heavy, cork-soled
boots invariably failed to fit them. Each
family, in spite of its poverty, had a dog,
which accompanied them when they lifted
A "Long-Shore" man's morning begins
at five, and he is always at the dock by
seven. We happened to get to Foxe'S
Point just about this time, when the men
were busied in mending yards of "leader"
nets and in bagging large quantities of
coarse salt. They were a very fI'iendly
and genial group. who seemed to take an
interest in us as soon as they learned
that we were from Northern Ontario.
I met a sixteen-years-old boy, "jigging"
eels, as he called it. I was deeply im-
pressed with their very ringing musical
dialect. It is the dialect of the men from
Sussex, according tu my mother. They
politely asked us to accompany them
while they raised their nets in the morn-
ing. These nets are raised twice a day.
once at four o'clock and also at eleven
in the morning. We wandered over the
village until the time came for the raising
of the nets. At this time, as a "bay wind"
was blowing, the sea was fairly choppy.
About eight men took part in the net-
raising, two to a boat. The boats were
tied together and drawn out to the nets
by a power dory. This power dory is
equipped with a harpoon for spearing
tuna. The nets lie about two hundred
yards from shore, and even at this short
distance the water is thirty fathoms deep.
As the boats approach the net, they break
off from the power dory and
encircle the "pond," A5 the men
begin to haul in the net, the mack-
erel come to the surface and in such
numbers of them that the water is
churned into foam. I shall never forget
the sight of those thousands upon thous-
ands of rbeautiful green, striped fish,
thrashing, leaping, twisting and turning
in an effort to escape the net. As the
fish are crowded to the surface, the load-
ing boatmen throw a large dip-net into
the "pond." This dip-net is about six
feet in diameter and takes in about five
hundred fish every cast. The dip-net is
thrown out by a rope, and then hauled
20 THE NORTHLAND ECHO
in and emptied. By the time the boat-
load is filled, the men are standing in
fish up to their knees. The whole pro-
cess takes little more than half an hour
and as soon as the loading is over, the
net is lowered again. Mixed very spar-
ingly with mackerel are a few haddock
and sole. The men then return to thc
shore where their real work begins, that
of cleaning and packing their catch. In
this art. for it is an art with them, young
boys of seven and eight take part and
these boys are as quick as the more
Noticeable around the dock were
numerous loibster pots of wicker-work.
Because the lobster fishing takes place
during the winter, it is the hardest and
cruellest job imaginable. The freezing
wind blows the water over the boat and
boatmen, covering them with ice.
The fishermen never know whether
they will be able to sell their fish or not,
ibut keep netting them at all times, taking
a chance on the marketls. The fisher-
man's profit is almost negligible and we
who are inland born cannot quite realize
the enormous amount of work necessary
for such a small income.
These long-shore men are real workers
and fine people. I shall never forget
A VISIT TO THE ROOF
The first time I visited Toronto was
two years ago, when I went to thc Union
Station with my cousins to see a friend
off for the West.
While my older cousin waited to see
her friend on the train, my younger
cousins, Evelyn and Audrey, decided to
take me across to the Royal York Hotel
and try to get permission to see the Roof
Gardens. They took me through five or
six rooms in the station before we
reached the tunnel. The tunnel was car-
peted, lighted by electric lights on both
sides and very stuffy and smoky. We
ran part of the way to get out of it in a
hurry. The rumbling of the cars over-
head made the glass fronts of the adver-
tisements along the sides of the tunnel
tremble. As soon as we reached the
hotel we stopped and thankfully took a
deep breath of fresh air.
We stood there for a few minutes just
inside, deciding who should ask for per-
mission. Audrey was the only one who
had enough courage to do so. She crossed
her fingers, walked boldly up to the
elevator-boy, told him we were from
North Bay rAudrey, had lived in Toronto
all her life and never had been to North
Bay and knew no onc there but meh and
asked him if he would be allowed to take
us up to the roof gardens. He asked the
head man at the desk. The man
answered, "No, not now. The orchestra
is just beginning its broadcast."
"But sir, they've come from away up
north," the elevator-boy protested.
"How far north?" asked the head man,
"North Bay, sir."
"Oh, of course then," the head man
said, looking astonished, "If they've come
so FAR, by all means take them up."
"Thank you, sir."
With that, the elevator-boy led the
way to one of the elevators. When all of
us were in and the elevator was going up,
the boy began to ask us about North Bay.
He had played on the Trappers' hockey
team the previous winter and he asked
about some of the others on the team.
Of course, I answered all his questions.
He must have considered the others quite
dumb or else just shy, because -they didn't
answer anything about North Bay. Mean-
while, I was watching the light that
indicated what floor we were. We went
up about eighteen floors, then to the
The moment we stepped out of the
clevator we stopped, dazzled. There were
huge glass windows which separated us
from the ballroom. Just inside, on a
raiscd platform, was Mark Kenny's
orchestra, every member of which wore a
whitc suit coat and black trousers. The
grand piano was also white. The singing
star, Georgia Day, was standing near the
microphone. She was very pretty, with
blonde hair, blue eyes and dressed in a
black evening gown which made a strik-
ing contrast with the white of the men's
suit coats and piano. From the micro-
phone, hung a sign, "On the Air." There
were a few people dancing. When Georgia
Day sang, we couldn't hear her above the
orchestra. A trio sang too, but I didn't
hear their names when the elevator boy
told us who they were. He left us stand-
ing there alone after about five minutes.
We stayed a while longer, then went
down, still in a daze.
Nowadays, songs are so numerous and
of so many different styles that it is
difficult to classify them, In general, the
songs popular today may be put into
four classes: Q13 common love songs: C29
slow ballads, 133 swing musicg C43 novelty
In the first class, that of the common,
everyday love songs, lies most of the
average popular songs of the day, In
THE NORTHLAND ECHO 21
this class lie such songs as, "This Is No
Dream," "Stairway to the Stars." "Do I
Love You?" The titles of these songs
suggest exactly what they are, merely a
jumble of words that happen to rhyme,
set to music. Whether there is any
sense in them, judge from this example:
"You may spell love with a capital "L",
But I spell love with a capital "You",
Through the day you're away and I
mope and mope and mope,
And you do to, I hope, I hope, I hope."
-and so on. It is merely the music in
this type of song that makes them popu-
lar. The tunes, whether last or slow,
are catchy. You may hear a song ot this
type o-n the radio and tnink to yourself
"Isn't that stupid!" but I wouldnt be
the least bit surprised if you found your-
self humming the tune to that same song
fifteen minutes later.
The next class, the slow ballads, con-
tains some of the most popular songs of
the day as "Blue Orchids", "I Thought
About You", "Many Dreams Ag0"', "Care-
less". School teachers can tell you just
how popular these songs are, I imagine.
Not many days pass without at least
one industrious pupil czoonmg in a deep,
bass voice--"South of the Border, Down
Mexico Way." This type of song usually
tells a sad love story, with the lover
mourning his lost love. The music is
slow and pulsing, the dancer's delight.
The third class contains the type of
songs people mean when they rave about
"that awful popular swing stuff."
Although there is nothing nice about
them, these ditties become quite popu-
lar, and are played over and over again
by dance orchestras. This class is even
more meaningless than the first, for the
words are only jargon, invented by some
jitterbug in a. wild moment. Here's a good
"The jim jam jump is the jumpin' jive
Makes you get your kicks on the
The music is usually just a repetition
of a few notes or phrases over and over
again with every instrument in the
orchestra playing an individual tune as
a side line.
The last class, novelties, is the most
popular of all. These songs come from
nowhere to fame in an interval, and fade
out just as quickly. But while they are
popular everyone sings them, housewives,
tradesmen, clerks. You wake up in the
morning hearing the milkman whistle
"Ho-dle-ay, start the day right." On the
way to work or school. you pass the news-
paper boy warbling "Oh Johnny" without a
care in the world. And you'll be lucky
if you go through the day without hear-
ing at least two renditions of "Little Red
-Fox," "Confucius Say," "Jiminy Cricket,"
"Give a Little Whistle," or "When You
Wish Upon a Star." The tunes to these
ditties are lilting, cheerful, almost con-
tagious, and the lyrics are lively and
original. This type of popular song is a
great help in keeping up your spirits
during the day.
This is a summary of the popular
songs today, but whether it will hold,
even a year from now, remains to be
seen. For songs come and go with sea-
sons, with only a. few outstanding enough
to be remembered.
Jean McBeth, IVA Coll,
The year was 1881 and prospects were
bright for George Mo1'rison's young wife.
She had her neat log cabin on the Point
and the Indians were beginning to come
regularly to exchange their fu1's for her
husband's flour and blankets. At that
moment he was miles distant, paddling
toward Nipissing, with a bag of flour
stowed safely away in the bottom of the
canoe. Her baby dozed in its rough
cradle near the open smudge which she
had just kindled. WVhen she had thrown
a yard or two of fine cheese-Cloth over
the cradle to protect her little son from
black-flies, Mrs. Morrison trudged slowly
but cheerfully down the path to the lake-
shore, swinging her empty waterpail.
Far across the bay, several wisps of
white smoke from chimneys at the "Wasi"
we1'e visible as they rose and were
wafted on the clear air far out over the
still blue water. The woman stood, drink-
ing in the cool, clean air for several min-
utes. At last she bent to fill her pail. At
that moment she glanced back to her
home. From the spot where she was
kneeling, she could see red flames licking
greedily at the gummy pine floor and
even as she sprang to her feet and strug-
gled towards the house, she knew that
she could not hope to save her child.
That, unfortunately, was true. Evidently
the baby had awakened and had, some-
how, set the cradle rocking. The drag-

From this tragedy sprang the begin-
ning of the present Village of Callander.
Mr. Morrison built a better cabin on the
site of the present Callander Hotel and
several years later he had the town site
surveyed. In his new log home he con-
tinued to live and to use it as a small
inn, to which came surveyors, prospec-
tors and future settlers. In 1884 George
Morrison moved across the street and
founded the general store which is run
today by his son, Kenneth. It has been
changed and enlarged considerably since
that time, for it was, like the other two
Morrison dwellings, constructed of rough
At this period in Callander's history
the bulk of the settlement was not, as
might be expected, at the town itself but
at the Wisa Wasa Falls, about three
miles south and west. Here was located
Booth's loading station from which logs
were sent on their way to Lake Nos-
bonsing, the Ottawa River and finally the
mill at Ottawa. Nevertheless, Callander
Proper had a larger population than had
the settlement of North Bay some nine
miles to the north.
The railway, as always, was accom-
panied by many new settlers so that the
tiny community grew steadily and in
1885 Mr. White established his hotel, the
"White House," on the lakeshore near the
present barber shop. Also the next year
in 1886, the first municipal elections were
held, with the result that George Morrison
was selected as reeve while on the coun-
cil were Messrs. Darling, Wessel and
Mr. Morrison selected the name Cal-
lander for the community because of his
father's birthplace in Callander, Scotland.
Some years later the name was changed
to Eastport and though the post office
continued to be Callander, the station
was known by the new name. This
arrangement proved unsatisfactory and
after considerable discourse, the town
again became known by its present
Callander was on the verge of its
greatest prosperity. In 1893 the John B.
Smith and Sons lumber company moved
its mills from Frank's Bay, at the
entrance to the French River, to its pres-
ent location at Callander. The McBurncy
mills followed soon after it and for the
first time in its history Callander knew
real prosperity. As the demand for men
could not be met by the scanty popula-
tion. lunrbermen from all over the district
came in droves to obtain work and
homes. Wages were high, poverty was
unknown and the population of the busy
little centre reached an all-time high.
Even at this brightest moment, tragedy
again cast its shadow over Callander.
The steamer Fraser, loaded with men
bound for the Davidson and Hayes' win-
ter lumber camps at Frank's Bay, was
burned completely just off Goose Island.
About 30 men perished that autumn day
and only about a dozen survived. These
managed to climb aboard a scow which
was trailing behind the boat. Others
lowered the lifeboat but it became caught
in the paddle-wheel and was dashed to
pieces. For weeks bodies were found
along the lakeshore, especially in the
marsh near Smiths' lumber mill. This
was the grimmest event in the entire
history of the town.
Callander continued uneventfully as a
quiet lumbering village until the depres-
sion following the Great W'ar, when the
nearby timber limits became exhausted.
Good luck had not, however, entirely for-
saken her. With the birth of the Dionne
quintuplets on May 28, 1934, a new and
utterly different era began. Callander,
the drowsy little settlement, became
world-famous overnight! Tourists flocked
to the Dafoe Nursery, souvenir stands
and refreshment booths sprang up on
every street corner, and at last Callan-
der's dirt roads were paved and improved.
Every available building was converted
into a hotel or restaurant and cabins
were as numerous as flies. Most of the
actual profit, however, has been made by
outsiders who come in with their sou-
venirs and post cards and disappear
southward with the last American license
Three years ago gold engraved
brooches were presented to the five sis-
ters by the burgh or town council of
Callander, Scotland. It may be easily
understood how the present and future
of Callander is bound up with those chil-
dren, who, six years of age this May,
dwell in their quiet nursery, unconscious
of the fame that they have brought to
their home and family. They have intro-
duced the American public to the grow-
ing tourist centre of Northern Ontario
and will continue to do so if the quin-
tuplets are not moved, as has been
It is an interesting fact that, at the
present time, in 19-10, Kenneth Morrison,
son of George Morrison, has stepped into
his father's place as reeve of North
Himsworth township. May he carry on
just as successfully as his father and
serve the village his father founded
through who knows what new phases of
history yet to come.

Do you believe in ghosts? NVhile with
apparent scorn I say quite emphatically,
'No,' I must confess that my fingers are
invariably crossed. And in those darkest
hours before the dawn when awakened
by a creaking step or a howling wind,
I lie shivering with horror in bed. Ghosts
are very real things to me.
The ghosts I should like to meet are
not those mysterious spirits that the late
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle described, gliding
through ancient castles moaning and
sighing amid the rustle of silken skirts
and the clanking of chains to visit upon
human beings thc sorrows and misfor-
tunes of their eventful lives. Those
vengeful ghosts are not the spectres
which I fear.
The ghosts I should like to meet are
the ghosts, not of real beings. but of
inanimate objects on whose very presence
the imagination of the world depends.
You don't have to look for the ghosts
I should like to meet, or spend a night of
terror in some "haunted" house to meet
one: they are all around you.
For example, there is first "the ghost
of a chance," that hovers above the earth
flitting nervously here and there, always
ready to pounce upon a critical moment
when time seems to stand still in expecta-
tion. The ghost of a chance is like an
elf, delighting in mischief, laughing glee-
fully when some pessimistic individual
happens to say despairingly, "I haven't a
ghost of a chance to succeed!"
Then there is "the ghost of a tear,"
along with the ghost of a smile and the
ghost of a sigh. These are very rare and
beautiful ghosts. "The ghost of a smile"
is a whimsical one that appears in the
most unexpected places, utterly ravishing
in its suddenness. The "ghost of a tear
haunts" the most cherished memories in
a person's life, hiding secretly until it
suddenly appears from nowhere in all its
radiant beauty. The "ghost of a sigh." a
quiet little ghost, is the rarest one in my
Finally there is the ghost of a dream -
a tall mysterious ghost that glides noise-
lessly throughout the world holding in its
possession all the wishes and the dreams
These are never terrifying and aveng-
ing ghosts, but friendly and real appari-
tions. They are the ghosts I should like

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
Ezio Cappadocia, IIIA Collegiate
Today, when Democracy is engaged in
a war for the healthy continuation of its
existence, it is more than ever import-
ant for us to realize what Democracy is
and what it should mean to us. ' A thot'-
ough analysis of Democracy would
require a greater amount of space than
that at our disposal. I shall deal, there-
for, only with these four aspects of the
ti! The fall of post-war Democracies
in Central Europe,
tiib The concurrent growth of Paci-
fism in the western Democracies after
tiiii Democracy and its relation to
tivb The future of Democracy.
In recent years, we have seen the fall
of many post-war Democracies in Cen-
tral Europe. Their collapses were caused
first by the failure of the Western
Democracies to help these newly estab-
lished Democracies, secondly by the fear
of capitalists and industrialists within
the new Democracies that a social revolu-
tion against the misery and poverty of
post-war period would take place, if it
rigid system preventing this were not
established. Last of all, however, the
collapses were caused by the inability of
the people living in these countries to use
Democracy. since Democracy is the rule
of the people, rule which depends upon

their knowledge and discuxion of public
As a result of these policies, Europe is
today plagued with Nazism and Fascism,
systems of government that are anti-
democratic, anti-liberal, anti-humanist
and anti-pacifist. They are also anti-
religious, although German Nazism at
the same time does not fail to claim that
Hitler is performing God's purposes for
Democracy, on the other
hand, cannot be anti-religious, for it and
Christianity go hand in hand, making
neither social nor racial distinctions and
therefore permitting a great variety of
The dictators, taking advantage of
Pacifism and internal conditions, substi-
tuted the army for the Christian method
of peaceful arbitration. They increased
their military preparations and kept pub-
lic opinion in a state of nationalist pas-
sion. While the dictators were develop-
ing their war machines. the Democracies
were preaching Pacifism according to
Christian principles, and repeatedly pro-
claiming that their desire was peace
only-i.e.. that the world must remain as
it was in 1919. Thus, when the high
tension was reached in the crisis in the
middle of the 1930's, the Democracies
remained at a disadvantage and beheld
the tragic sacrifices of Manchuria.
Abyssinia, Austria, Spain and Czecho-
slovakia. The dictators interpreted these
pacifistic outbursts as admissions of
weakness and of readiness to keep the
peace at any price. The declaration of
war by Britain, France and the British
Dominions against Germany, subsequent
to I-Iitler's brutal attack on Poland, must
have caused grim realizations for thc
But despite these post-war pacific poli-
cies, the Democracies failed to make
Democracy international by removing the
causes of war. As a result, today we are
again engaged in a second struggle "to
make the world safe for Democracy."
If Christianity and Democracy are
inseparaible, so too must Democracy and
freedom be inseparable, But, unfor-
tunately, when war begins, freedom ends.
According to the policy of our govern-
ment, what it terms "hostile opinion,"
must be controlled because it hinders the
successful prosecution of the war. Most
people are willing to admit that some
restrictions are necessary. But, how are
we to interpret the phrase "hostile
opinion"? Does it imply hostility in the
methods with which the war is being
waged and to the end at which it aims?
We must remembcrthat once our right
of criticism is withdrawn, once our gov-
ernment becomes a semi-dictatorship, it
commits all the natural follies of a real
Our politicians should not be the only
people free to criticize our war policy.
To many of them their party and its
future is far more important than the
successful prosecution of the war. There-
fore, I believe that if anyone criticizes
the national policy and supports his criti-
cism Iby evidence that there is need for
it, he should not be looked upon as
unpatriotic or disloyal. The notorious
Padlock Law, for example, passed in the
Quebec Legislature, is an indication of
the extent to which those in power may
abuse Democracy, even in peace time,
while preaching its maintenance. The
sponsors of the law declared that it was
an act to suppress subversive and com-
munistic activities. What the term "com-
munism" means was left for the former
Attorney-General to interpret.
The great problem facing the Democ-
racies today is not only that of exter-
minating the dictators, but also that of
preserving Democracy at home. The
economic strangulation of Germany by
the British blockade, which is slowly but
surely 'having its effect, and the growing
superiority of Britain and France, both
in the army and in the air, will inevit-
albly bring Germany to defeat in spite of
her striking power. But victory will
not ensure the triumph of Democracy if
it is not backed by a sensible peace
treaty making the resort to dictatorship
unnecessary. A new peace treaty must
be based on an attempt to answer the
legitimate demands of the economically
weak world powers. For humanity will
revolt against the idea that the World
has to pass through a conflagration
every 20 years because those demands
have not been satisfied. We must
remember that the only way to get rid
of war is to destroy its causes.
If Democracy is to survive and fulfill
its purpose, it must extend its funda-
mental belief in life, liberty and the pur-
suit of happiness to the economic and
social life of all national groups. It
must also extend this belief to countries
less fortunate than ours in their econ-
omic and financial conditions, thereby
making Democracy international, and at
least trying to remove the major causes
of war. Internally, Democracy must also
repair the faults of modern industrialism
and capitalism and readjust the mal-
distribution of wealth.
Concluding this brief survey of
Democ1'acy, we realize that it gives us
"the right to know, to utter and argue
freely, according to conscience." But
these rights can only be prese1'ved if
there is, in thc majority of individuals
THE NORTHLAND ECHO 25
at least, a minimum of honesty, sin'
cerity and, above all, a spirit of toler-
ance. Democracy is what the late
Governor-General, Lord Tweedsmuir,
called "the best system of government
which the human mind yet devised," but
he warned us that "it is also the most
difficult." Democracy commands our
personal responsibilityg it ensures uS
freedom, but its price is eternal vigil-

STORM ON LAKE NIPISSING
The sun casts down its lurid rays
And mercilessly beats the sand-
Transforms the placid water-ways
To liquid gold from Samarkand.
And blue of sky meets green of hill
Wnerc parching forests wait the e'en,
When cooling breezes, whisp'ring, tell
Their secrets to the evergreen.
Then comes the noon. The silence seems
Oppressive and foreboding, clouds
Are gathering fast. The sea gull dreams
On distant shores as darkness shrouds
The drowsy bays. Advancing sheets
Of dancing drops in glee, skip light
O'er foaming sea. The wind hurls fleets
Of tender leaves with furious might.
With frenzied scream the sea gull seeks
The shelter of some friendly place
Protesting loud with raucous shrieks
All 'birds on wing to hideouts race.
A chipmunk scurries 'neath a stumpg
A rabbit furtively lopes past
To peer from some deceptive clump
Until the rain abates at last.
An interlude as raindrops spit,
Then thunder breaks asunder skies
Blue flames shoot through the glo-om and
A spruce, that wounded, crumples, dies.
The elements clash with mighty strength
The wind howls louder, wailsg then shrill
It beats down rain and now at length
The birches quiver and puddles fill
And shiver ceaselessly. Small streams
Are coursing down to meet the shore
And mingle fearlessly with waves
That beat and splash with angry roar.
Then comes a hush. The silence seems
Oppressing and foreboding clouds
Are fading fast. The sea-gull screams
To distant shores. The breezes loud
In whispers die on .still sweet air.
A timid ray of sun breaks through
Experimentally and then
With glorious radiance, in pastel hue
A rainbow awes the land of men.
Its fleeting spell is broken when,
As colours fade and bid farewell,
VVe hear the cheerful warbling wreng
The storm is o'er and all is well.
There is a place in the northwoods, a
paradise to me,
A little lake, a laughing stream, it's
there I long to be.
In September, I'll remember, all the
splendour that I saw,
The gold and crimson maples, so perfect!
Not a flaw!
The silv'ry birch stood stalwart, in their
The pine and sumacs fondly the nearby
A little in the background a rugged rock
The trees that grow upon it, stand like
sentinels to me:
My precious paradise they will guard, of
that I do feel sure
And, when my head and heart are weary,
it's there I'll find a. cure.
As the moon swings high in a starlit sky,
It's the boot of an owl I hear,
And right then I know, no matter where
I'll always cherish thoughts of Tomiko!

listen to the conversation that goes on,
on the orchestra stand during the inter-
mission and after the dances, they would
soon change their minds. True, the
orchestras that play at the dances in
this city are small, but they have their
Playing for dances is not all fun.
When you think that all the musicians
in this city have other jobs to work at
during the day, you will agree that play-
ing all night can be very tiresome. The
average dances start at nine and finish
at about two or three o'clock the next
morning, Five or six hours of steady
playing is hard, especially with an eight-
hour day behind you and another ahead
But let's sit in with the orchestra for
This dance is a formal affair. The
orchestra has been "ordered" to wear
tuxedos. Tuxedos? Hmm.
At the last rehearsal the leader men-
tioned this clause in the contract tyes,
it's only a verbal contracti and is imme-
diately besieged with excuses for not
wearing them. After a check-up it was
found that only four of the members
had "tuxes." Finally, it was arranged
that those that did not have them were
to wear blue suits, white shirts and black
It is the night of the dance. One by
one the musicians walk in. Finally the
drummer appears. He wears a brown
suit, green shirt and blue polka-dot tie.
The tie is a borrowed one, and is the
only thing that resembles any part of a
tuxedo. Oh well, the dance has to go on,
even though the club dance committee
glares at the orchestra with narrowed
After tuning up the instruments, the
orchestra is ready to start. There are
only a few couples present. These are
a few of the younger set. This is the
crowd that is easy to play for. Give
them fast "jitter-bug" music and they
are satisfied. There is no need for read-
ing music when playing for them. Some
old standard numbers are revived and
"dressed up" according to each indivi-
dual member's taste. In this city an
effort of this kind usually ends in a
hideous jumble, but as long as there is
a steady rhythm on the part of the drums
and piano everyone is satisfied.
The music that takes the most out of an
orchestra is that of the slow waltzes, Per-
haps this is only my viewpoint, but after
playing for a whole dance and then being
called on to play with already tired lips.
a long drawn-out waltz is torture. In
this day of "swing," the requests for
waltzes are few and far between.
Of requests by the dancers, it is only
right to say that they are a helpful
practice to the orchestra. They give the
orchestra an idea of what kinds of music
to play for different crowds. There are
two types of people who request num-
bers. The first type is the person who
really likes a certain number and who
actually wants to hear it. The second
type is the person who makes a request
and doesn't even recognize the piece after
it is played. This type is usually under
the influence of the rather strong punch
in the corner, or perhaps some special
brand kept in the cloak-room.
The most enjoyable part of the dance
is the lunch served to the orchestra in
a back room. Here anything goes, and
the orchestra really shines in this depart-
After lunch there is another hour of
dancing which seems to be the dullest
part of the dance. The crowd begins to
thin out until finally only the couples
that were there at first are left.
THE ARRIVAL OF THE TRAIN
ON CHRJSTMAS EVE
tJunior Prize Essay?
E. Firth, Form IB
It was Christmas Eve. The snow fell
in large, exquisitely shaped flakes. In
the window of every home was a holly-
wreath, candle or some other symbol of
the happy time. Few people were on
the streetg they were all at home enjoy-
ing the blessings of peace.
At the newly established railway sta-
tion the ticket agent's mournful face was
certainly no advertisement for the joys of
travel. He thought of the brilliantly light-
ed trees, a platter on which reposed a mam-
moth turkey, sprigs of mistletoe adorn-
ing convenient doorways, but mostly of
a certain pink-cheeked maiden who would
even now be leading the Grand Waltz.
Through the snow dimly could be seen
a gay poster setting forth the merits of
"Spend this winter in F'lorida!" it
said. "Enjoy a southern Christmas!"
A policeman paced iback and forth
32 THE NORTHLAND ECHO
on the platform and ehaffed his cold
hands. Perhaps he was thinking of the
warm fireside at home, and an adoring
wife to help him off with his coat.
"The 8.10 is about due." he said. "I
hope it's on time!"
A stray person here and there awaited
the train. Several shadowy cabs lurked
in the rear of the building. The raucous
cry of a newsboy disturbed the soft tran-
quillity of the scene.
A shrill whistle in the distance arrested
the interest of a small group. A glaring
light pierced the inky blackness of the
upper tracks. The clattering bang of
metal that needed oiling, mingled with
the noisy clank of an unmelodious bell
could be heard. Then, emerging from
the gloom was the engine, black smoke
belehing out of its funnel-shaped chimney.
With a great shriek of brakes the
obsolete old thing stopped with a jerk.
The old-fashioned cars were filled to
their capacity with those unable to spend
the few days before Christmas at home.
VVhen the grimy doors opened, they
seethed out. some to their waiting rela-
tives. other to the cabs, but most of them
sped into the dark alone, thinking of
the surprise and delight their arrival
would bring to their friends and king
while others, on their way to lonely hotel
rooms, gazed with envy through windows
at the gay festivity of the home.
The platform was soon deserted. The
ticket agent snored noisily at his wicket.
An occasional engine thundered by. And,
far down the street was a group of carol-
sinfgers. Their sweet strains echoed and
re-echoed through the peaceful scene.

A TALL TALE
Betty McIntyre, IVB '
I was curled up in Dad's hig arm-
chair, deeply engrossed in a ghastly mur-
der mystery, when someone knocked at
the door. At first I was too frightened
to move, and visions of horrible mon-
sters carrying machine guns and sharp
bolas raced through my terrified mind
"Oh, this is nonsense!" I scoffed.
"Things like that only happen in penny
novels," and I walked boldly to the door.
It took all the courage I could muster
to grasp the handle and fling the door
wide open, and, I thou-jght I did so
what my poor mother would think when
she found my body in the hall and my
head . . .
"Hi, Joan!" was the chr-cry gn-ctiiig
from the person at the door.
"M-Mary," I stanimcred, relieved.
"Oh! Oh! More murder mysteries, I
bet," she said nodding her head in that
"Mary, this one is terrible. Come on
in and I'll tell you about it."
"Was he knifed, shot or poisoned?"
she queried. 1
"It's a girl, a beautiful girl who was
kidnapped by some horrible gangsters
and her mother and father were nearly
"Please go on," she pleaded.
"Well, t-he police searched -for months
witfhout success and then one day some-
one found her body floating down the
river. She had 'been shot and her neck
was all tied up with wire."
"Hmm, they did that one up in style."
"Mary Watson, you exasperate me,"
"That reminds me of something that
happened to two girls in this town about
three years ago," Mary went on, not
heeding my show of temper. "Did you
hear about it?"
"Oh, no! Please tell me," I lbegged,
feeling chills running up and down my
spine at the thought of a real mystery
in our own town.
"These two girls," Mary began, "were
at the library one night and became very
friendly with a couple of strange boys
at one of the reading tables. The follow-
ing night the girls received a telephone
call, and the voice on the other end of
the wire said, "We're the fellows you
met at the library last night, and We
wondered if you would like to go for a
ride with us?"
Mary drew a deep breath and went on.
"So the time and place were arranged
and when the girls got to the meeting-
place they found a 'big limousine waiting
for them at the curb."
"I'll bet it belonged to a big gang-
ster," I interrupted.
"The girls climbed in," Mary went on,
not heeding my interruption, "and to
their horror they found themselves beside
a couple of squat little Chinamen instead
of their library acquaintances."
"They were terribly frightened. One
girl was wearing a very expensive ring
which she offered to their captors if they
would release them."
"Then what?" I gasped, edging for-
ward in the chair.
"Well, one of the Chinamen grabbed
the ring and commanded the chauffeur
to drive into the country. When they
came to it lonely spot on the road, they
pushed the girls out and drove off in
the car leaving them there."
"They didn't murder them?" I asked,
"No, but the girls had to make their

"Is that all?" I asked, a little impatient
at the idea. of it not being as gruesome
as I had expected.
"No, some time later the same two
girls were dining in one of our down-
town restaurants. They had both ordered
apple pie for dessert. One of the girlS
cut down into her pie and what do you
think she found?"
"Mary!" I screamed. "Her ring?"
"No! . . . Apples!"
It was the day before my mother-'s
birthday and my friend, Ben Timberly,
and I were down town trying to think
of something I could buy her for a
"How about a pair of gloves?" sug-
gested Ben. "A woman can always use a
"No," I said, "this has got to be a real
present, something that she can wear
"How about a pair of shoes?" Ben
"No, that won't do either because I
don't know what size of shoe she wears,"
"Well, then, I know the very thing
for her," Ben cried. "Some perfume! And
I know the very kind and just where to
"You finally hit upon something worth
while," I said. "Where can I get it and
what kind is it?"
"It's Lavender perfume," said Ben.
"and you can get it at that new Laven-
der Shop that opened last Wednesday
on Main Street."
Swiftly we went down a few more
blocks until there, before us, stood a
huge glass-fronted, black and white shop
with a large "Lavender Perfume" sign
hanging out in front. We entered and
were met by an attractive young woman
who asked us what she could do to help
"I was wondering if you could help
me select a bottle of perfume for a mid-
dle-aged woman," I stated. "You see,
to-morrow is her birthday and it needs to
be something very special."
"I have the very thing," replied the
clerk. "It's our 'Lavender De Luxe' and
it only costs five dollars for this small
bottle. Here, smell it, and judge for
She held the bottle below my nose
and I inhaled a strong, sweet smelling
"That will do very nicely," I told her.
"Wrap it up and I'll take it now."
I paid the girl and put the bottle in
my coat pocket. Ben and I having com-
pleted our task, started for home.
As we hurried homewards we were
obliged to watch our step because a light
rain had made the streets very slippery.
Since I had come over half way home
without falling I suppose I became a bit
careless and didn't think that it was
necessary to take such great precaution.
I had hardly gone a half a block, how-
ever, when I tripped on a curb and fell
on the pavement.
"Take care," said Ben, as he rushed
over and helped me to stand on my feet.
"Or you'll break that bottle oi perfume.
Say, you didn't break it at that, did you,
because I smell something very strong?"
I reached into my pocket and my
hand came into contact with some broken
pieces of glass and a wet, sticky sub-
stance. Sure enough, I had broken that
bottle and the odour of "Lavender De
Luxe" was spread around me.
"That's done it," said Ben, "Phewl
what a stink! Walk on ahead will you?
I can't stand the smell of that stuff."
I removed my coat and with it slung
over my arm I renewed my journey home
with Ben walking several yards behind
"Carry your coat for you Madam?"
cried one of the amused people passing
"Where is the flower show, girlie?"
"What perfume company are you
advertising for?" shouted another.
One old lady even had the nerve to
ask me what kind of perfume it was
and where she could buy it because she
liked it so well.
With these embarrassing remarks to
make me uncomfortable, I finally arrived
home with my face as red as a beet.
"What ever is that smell?" inquired
my mother, as I entered the house. I
explained it all to her as best I could and
then ran to my room to take off my
I hung it out in the air for about a
week to see if the smell would go away
and seeing that it did not help matters
very much I sent the suit to the clean-
ers to see if they could do anything
The cleaners returned the suit nicely
pressed and cleaned, but still a little
of the aroma remained. At last, thinking
that it was useless, I threw the suit
So ever since I have never liked the

The gymnastic team plays an impor-
tant part in our annual open nights and
cadet inspections. The team spends many
hours in practice during the year and is
deserving of the praise that is heaped
upon it by the onlookers. Last year the
inspecting cadet officer commended the
boys for their daring feats and wonderful

standing member of the team and leads

Two other boys will be chosen to round
out this year's 12-man squad.
As usual the Collegiate entered a team
in the North Bay Hockey Association this
year and it turned out to be one of the
best teams the Collegiate has had for
years. There were only four players from
last year's teamg the rest of the team
consisted of players of juvenile age.
There were five teams entered in the
city league this year, while a sixth team
was granted a bye into the finals.
The green and white went through the
entire schedule and play-offs without one
Scollard Hall came through second in
the league and met Sturgeon Falls, the
privileged squad, in a sudden-death
semi-final. Sturgeon Falls won this game
but lost out to our boys in the final,
5 to 2.
Thus the green and white recaptured
the championship and The Nugget
As a result of this triumph, the Col-
legians earned the right to enter North-
crn Ontario Junior "B" play-offs. In a
'very close game with Falconbridge they
were defeated 4 to 3, having led all the
way through the game, they were nosed
out at the very end.
The players: Goal, H. Devlin, Defence,
L. Whitham, R, Pelletierg Centre, D. Hall,

F. Ringler, G. Kirk, B. Cummings, J.

nigan, B. Marshall and E. O'Donne1l.
Coached by Rene Pelletier, defence
star with the senior squad, with Mr.
McCann as manager, the Juveniles gave
a splendid account of themselves, show-
ing plenty of promise. While they did
not make the finals most of their games
were very close. As was shown by this
yca.r's senior team, the Juveniles will be
in demand at a later date. The team: A.

probably the best interscholastic game

incentive to win, the school team won 3-1.

the green and white 2-1 and Windsor

Ottawa went on to win the title by virtue
of an easy 9-5 win over Windsor. Our
boys took Belleville 9-1 in an easier
match. The closest game of the tourna-
ment was Ottawa's 2-1 win. It was as
close as could be. The score by periods
was O-0, 1-1, 2-1 and the play was even
closer. With two minutes to go, a goal,
which would have tied the score, was
disallowed. Although defeated the Col-
legians completely won the London crowd
and had them cheering their every move.

were disastrous. Only a skeleton few of

up an exceedingly plucky fight and new
stars were born. They not only took
another game from Sturgeon, 5-0, but

more should be said about the Juniors.

smaller, lighter and naturally not as
experienced, they suffered a great deal
but always came back for more. Next

42 THE NORTHLAND ECHO
In the school year 1939-40. many
distinguished and interesting speakers
addresed the pupils of our school.
The first of these was Father
Humphrey, who spoke to the students on
Armistice Day. His message was in
keeping with the times, dealing with the
effect of the present war on the Armistice
At Christmas, Father Jarvis delivered
a lovely mesage, urging us not to lose
sight of the meaning of Christmas in the
holiday time ahead of us.
In the new year, the field secretary
of the Red Cross, Miss Hollinger, came
to the school. She urged the organization
of Red Cross groups in the school to
enable us to do our part in the war work.
Dr. Fox, principal of the University
ot' Western Ontario, was our next visitor.
He gave an interesting talk on Education,
saying it was too bewildering to be
crystallized into a definition. He stated
that teachers do not educate us, but
merely give the atmosphere most encour-
aging for us to educate ourselves. Dr.
Fox closed with a quotation from the
works of Leonardo de Vinci that set many
heads to thinking: "All good things are
given to us, O God, at the price of labor."
An inspiring speaker was Harvey
Lynes, field secretary of the Institute of
the Blind. Mr. Lynes urged us to tak:
care of our eyes, our most precious
Again, as in past years. Mr. Dunlap
came to us from the University of
Toronto to tell us about the courses the
university has to offer. He said that it
is important for young people to make a
choice of an occupation early and find
out if they are fitted for it.

The Students' Council, after paying
bills accumulated by the previous coucil,
began the year with a small deficit, How-
ever, the last council went to consider-
able expense in improving the school
rink, thus saving the present council a
goal sum of money.
The council fees were slightly higher
than last year, although not as yet up
to the standard that they should be.
The Annual School Dance was held
on Friday, January 19. in the new Gym-
nasium. The dance had a fair attend-
ance but was not a financial success,
On February 29. and March 1, the
annual School Play, "The Sweetest Girl
in Town," was presented under the aus-
pices of the council, and under the joint
direction of Miss M. E. VVales, Miss P.
L. Morgan, and Mr. S. XV. M Hardwick.
The musical comedy was one of the most
successful plays put on at the school.
The auditorium was filled to capacity
both nights, and many persons were
unable to obtain seats.
The rugby and basketball teams fin-
anced by the council were very success-
ful this year. The basketball team wor'
the N.O.S.S.A. tournament at Timmins,
and competed for the interscholastic
championship of Ontario at Ottawa. Our
hockey team won the Ennis Cup, and
competed for the Ontario interschol-
astic championship at London.
So far this year has been very suc-
cessful for the Students' Council, and
there is every indication that it will con-
tinue to be so.
The executive for the Students' Coun-
eil as elected were:
President, Bill Keechg

Immediately after election, Ray John-

Tllli SCIl00L PLAY
THE CAST OF "THE SWEETEST GIRL IN TOWN"
"The Sweetest Girl in Town," a
modern musical comedy, found enthu-
siastic favor with the citizens of North
Bay when it was held in the School
Auditorium on Thursday and Friday
nights, February 29 and March 1. Under
the capable guidance and instructions of
Miss VVales, Miss Morgan and Mr.
Hardwick. the play proved to be a great
success, selling to capacity audiences both
nights. The lyrics were witty and bright
and the music was unusually tuneful, the
theme song, "The Sweetest Girl in Town,"
being one of the most lilting melodieS
written in rect-nt years. Then there was
the delightful satirical song, "Since I
Listencd to My Radio," the comic trio, "I
Should Say So," the melodic "Since I
First Met You." the tinkling "A
Thousand Yi-airs From Now," and many
others. Mr. Charles George, author and
composer, has outdone himself in com-
posing this unusually good vocal score.
The libretto contained screamingly
funny farce situations. to which each
membrr contributed. The sccne is a
reception room in 3 smart summer hotel,
and briefly the story concerns the
romance of young Harry Hart, tG0rdon

a girl who is long on. background but
short on cash, and who desires to make
a financially advantageous marriage.
Mrs. Hart determines to break off Harry's
engagement to Jackie and has Jackie
discharged from her position in the hotel.
VVhile at college, Harry's roommate and
pal was young Jack Stewart tDouglais
Becksi whose initials happen to be the
same as Jackieis, so Harry concocts a
scheme to have Jackie impersonate his
pal and pay him a visit. In Act Two we
find Jackie looking very trim in boy's
clothes and being adored by all the girls,
especially Hari-y's mother. All goes well
until the REAL Jack Stewart puts in his
appearance. Riotously funny complica-
tions then develop, but everything is
straightened out satisfactorily with the
aid of Mr. Hart who gives his consent to
the marriage between Jackie and Harry
and convinces Mrs. Hart to take the same
attitude. There are several amusing
romances running through the play,
including Willie Love, tMalcolm McDon-
aldi, a romantic young thing, also a
comic Doctor Quack tClifford Algerb who
tried to escape the attention of Mrs.
Lotta Doe tSylvia Rubinovichi, a
wealthy widow with imaginary ills.

At the beginning of the school term,
Mr. Carrington aroused the spark of
genius hidden in some of the students for
the making of Marionettes. Thirty
students turned out, all eager and with
great expectations. Junior and senior
groups were organized. Some of the most
prominent of the plays to be put on Were,
"The Wizard of Oz," "Frankenstein" and
"The Shooting of Dan McGrew." Enthu-
siasm had no bounds, but-the boys had
to sew! This dampened their spirits for
a while but they did a good job. The
carving of the heads was not so hard but
it took patience and skill. They were
well rewarded for their efforts when they
finished. If you entered Mr. Carrington's
room while marionette work was in
progress, you would probably hear such
things as this, "Have you got your head
with you?" "Don't leave your leg over
there, someone may walk away with it."
"Who kicked all the stuffings out of my
body?" The woodshop, with the help of
Mr. Anderson, have made a perfect stage:
one in which the marionettes will be
proud to appear. When the marionette
show is put on, join the crowd and
enjoy the fun. The age limit is from
three to eighty-three.

Pour la premiere fois un club fran-

but de ce club est d'enseigner aux mem-

leur aider it mieux comprendre la lan'
Aujourd'hui une personne qui sait par-
ler le francais and Vanglais a plus de
chance a obtenir une position qu'une

du Canada et l'une est aussi importante
que l'autre. Nous avons "deux langues,
mais une seule idee."

present. Un esprit co-operatif devrait
etre develope dans les ecoles aussi bien
que dans le commerce.
Le club essaye d'introduire ces idees
ct on meme temps d'c-nseigner le fran-
cais qui se parle en toutes les maiso-ns
frangaises. Les membres apprennent a.
chanter, at raconter des histoires, appren-
nent lo nom des articles qu'on acheterait
dans une epicerie, le nom de la plupart
des etoffes et beaucoup d'autres choses.
Je Crois qu'il devrait y avoir un club
franqais dans une ecole ou on enseigne
le franoais et ou il y a un grand nombre

jours un club franqais dans cette ecole.

Spring's here, so 1et's be gay!
Let.'s make our dreams come true:
We'll chase all gloom away-
Give happiness its cue.
The daisy in her ivory palm,
Her golden heart uplifts,
To join in wondrous song,
As spring presents her gifts.
Emerald leaves hang still,
And gleam 'neath the turquoise blue,
And there's the robin's cheerful trill,

THE RED CROSS SLEIGH
Our Junior Red Cross members
Held a sleighing party one night,
It was a glorious evening
And the moon was shining bright.
The sleighs were great 'big flat ones,
Covered over with hay, ,
'Mid shouting, singing and laughing,
VVe started on our way.
The merry sleigh bells jingled
As the horses pranced along,
And soon the air about us
VVas filled with bits of song.
Soon on and off the sleighs we went
Into the piles of snow,
And many were running away behind
As on the horses would go.
After a jolly ride
Out to the jail and around,
We discovered that each and every one
A large appetite had found.
The table laden with beans and things
VV4s a ve-ry welcome sight,
And table manners were thrown to the
As we ate our lunch that night.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORY
Thanks for the memory
Of school in old North Bay
Every single day,
NVith pupils here and pupils there, '
All who were so gay.
How lovely it was.
Thanks for the memory
Of dreams in our French class
Of green trees and of grass,
When teachers cried in agony,
"MV heavens what a class!"
How lovely it was.
Many times we were detained,
And many the time we were let free,
But oh what a time we had attained.
VVe didn't learn much
In Science and such,
Of teachers 'by the score
Increasing more and more,
The crossest ones and the fiercest ones
Never were a bore.

Just laugh-don't be too wise.

A DAY WITH IIA OUR MOTTO
We rise in the morning full of zest
And go to school to do our best.
Out of the house at five to nine
And on to school in double quick time.
It's very, very late we readily see.
The locker room's jammed,
As crammed as crammed can be.
The first bell's gone-the second bell goes,
Oh! Mathematics gosh and Latin prose,
We tear along the corridor and with a
Greet Miss Wales to whom we're very
After the assembly to the lab we march
Erect is our posture, but we're talking
all the while.
Science class is over, our books are
packed with glee,
The English class is next, it's there that
we make whoopee,
Stamping in the class room, our books
banged on the desk,
We settle down and try to be each one
of us a pest.
The Latin class is next, all the students
they look grim,
Although a charming personage is
waiting them within.
We are very slack on homework, catch
up another dayg
But when four o'clock rolls around we
pupils have to pay
By writing out on foolscap why we have
time to play.
English comes again and We settle down
About the weather and the season and
this and all of that.
Then Mathematics comes around with
angle and with square,
And our minds they set a'thinking why
this stuff we have to bear.
Twelve o'clock is striking. a mad dash
through the door,
Shoving, pushing, juggling books along
Our dinner has been eaten, we're on our
way to school,
Not to be late, not to be late is IIA's
The afternoon soon passes till comes our
With cute Monsieur de Hardwick
a'setting on the bench.
The afternoon is over and so ends the day.
A day I hope you have enjoyed with our
good old IIA
May smiling be your motto,
Though your heart is filled with pain.
For behind a mask of sunshine
You can never see the rain.
When the clouds begin to gather
And the sky becomes o'er cast,
Remember all the little joys
That helped you through the past.
Don't frown upon the future,
Let smiling be your prayer,
And you'1l always, flnd a host of friends
With whom your smile to share.

FIFTEEN PERIODS A WEEK
She is such a charming person,
She listens to each one.
I bet she often wishes though
That we would stop wagging our tongues.
Now girls, you've been very noisy,
Something has got to be done.
Things can't go on and on like this,
For days and days to come.
You're headed for a detention,
This talking has got to cease.
And if you don't find it possible,
You'll all remain in your seats.
And so the days pass by,
And it hasn't come to pass.
The detention is still waiting
For IIA-That's our class.
WHAT WE HAVE AND WHAT
Campbell but no doctor
Byrnes but no Bob
Winters but no summers
Mackie but no house
Lewis but no Joe
Jessie but no James
Barley but no oats

Mr. Hardwick: "Now girls, after you
are sobered up we'll continue the lesson."

IIC Collegiate Miss Morgan
TI-PERE'S N0 FORM LIKE OURS
We are forty-five in our class of 2C
Forty-five of good company,
Forty-five who will all agree,
There was never a form like our 2C!
We have McIntyre, with his corny jokes,
Guenette, who gets all teachers' goats,
While Eddy sits back and grins, and
Over everything that happens.
Now Irene is a subject, musically inclined
And when playing her piano she leaves
Georgie far behind
But one go-od thing about it all is
Georgie he doesn't mind
And Irene wouldn't want to be any place
but in 2C!
Of course Fred Weegar loves to stare,
And Wilma gets in Bebee's hair
And Haze1's the gal that's never there
But such things do not matter.
And now I've given you the life 2C does
All jitterbugs and sports at night and
dozing all next day,
Teachers hint that for lethargy 2C is
But students think as well as say that
old 2C is glorious!
Several of the fair damsels of IIC
are beginning to believe that Fred Wee-
gar is easily amused by flirtatious tactics.
Wouldn't it be funny if Bill Eddy
were to make a mistake and say those
words of endearment to the wrong
Is there any special reason for Irene
Simkin's anxiety that her name would
not be coupled with George Cummings'
in the school magazine?
Does that vacant stare Burrows wears
in French period mean that he's thinking

64 THE NORTHLAND ECHO
Did anyone notice a very peculiar gas
in the atmosphere of the Science Room
February S, 1940?
A certain brunette lass of IIC wore
a new pair of shoes to school and after
suffering the most painful tortures and
untold agonies during History and Latin
periods, she took her usual seat beside
XVilma and then with a sigh of relief
kicked her shoes off under the desk in
the Science Class.
Guenette is a firm believer that the
most famous "VVALTONIAN" expression
is "You'l1 stay for 45 minutes."
Judging from the selection of nick-
names, one would be led to believe they
are chosen to suit their temperament,
but that does not explain "Cupid" Unger,
or does it?
Vvhat IIC lass used the Latin word
"amo" with the proper emphasis while
talking to her heart throb who does not
take Latin and his curiosity became so
aroused that he asked a friend who did
know its meaning and since he found out
he has gone with her ever since? Per-
haps Confucius could explain it.
Stranger than fiction and strange as
is seems, two very good friends of IIC
took violently sick during the dinner
hour. lThe hour detention they gained
previously from Miss Walton gave them
indigestion I guess.i Anyway, something
even more strange, or perhaps it's just
a coincidence, is that Thibiault Hill was
perfect that day for skiing.
Is Bruce Larochelle the reason for
Ha.zel's numerous half-holidays?
It's been rumored that Muriel Reed
adores McIntyre's cherubic expressions.
So does Miss Walton. Note: She also
believes Fred Weegar has eyes like Bette
I'm sure Mr. Hardwick would love to
listen in on Clara, Burrows and Lowry's
jokes sometime. Everyone does.
If Bette Baxter were searching for a.
suitable theme song why not try "There's
Something About a Soldier"?
NVQ all know that there are many
fornalf-s attracted to his magnetic charms,
but who attracts him? Wouldn't we love
Mr. Simpson: "McIntyre, stop that
McIntyre: "I wasn't talking, but now
I'm going to speak my mind." '
Mr. Simpson: "Ah! Silence at last!"
R. Lowry to Clara: "What's the seven-
letter word for mushroom?"
Clara tbrightlylz "Parlour."
Miss Walton: "Ray, what are you
Miss Walton: "That's not hard to
Miss Walton: "Bob Weegar, here you
are talking, after promising me you'd be
a good boy, and you know I promised you
a detention if you weren't. Well? What
have you to say for yourself?"
B. Weegar: "Well, Miss Walton, see-
ing I didn't keep my promise, you don't
have to keep yours!"
Mrs. Hoey: "Decline a third declension
noun for me, June."
June whispers to Marian P: "Wha.t's
a third declension noun?"
June: "Dunno, dunnio, dunni"-etc.
Mr. Hardwick to McIntyre: "You
must spend a fortune for gum."
B. Weegar: "Naw! He gets it from
under the seats."
Miss Walton: "Guenette, you better
come to your detention tonight."
Guenette: "Why can't I come tomor-

No wonder, your face would stop a.
You'll find the present crop of politi-
cians surprisingly well up in all the big
questions of the day if you refrain from
answering the answers.
Some time ago newspapers carried the
news that Italy devised a process of
making wool out of milk. It must make
the cows feel sheepish.
The following story was told by Mr.
Hardwick one day in IIC, much to our
"One evening," Mr. Hardwick did relate,
"Finds a gentleman going to keep a date,
With his girl-friend at his girl-friend's
He felt timid as a rabbit, and frightened
as a mouse.
He rang the doorbell, waited in dread,
Wishing to goodness that he were dead.
And when she answered the door, he
wore a nervous grin,
He spluttered and blurted, 'Is Irene in'?'
Well they spent a quiet evening, the way
all couples do,
And, she said as he was leaving, 'Here's
something you never knew.'
She had smeared lipstick on his tie, it
was no use to struggle,
His mind was blank, he could not think,
He did feel quite befuddled,
'You're the light of my life,' to George,
Irene had said.
Dad shouted down the stairs to her:
'Put out that light and come to bedl'
And so ends our tale, as the gentleman
Mr. Simpson was giving IIC a pep talk
to encourage them in their sale of tickets
for the play and for a shining example
he told the story of a Collegian of the
past who was so anxious to sell tickets
that when he went to one house the lady
who answered the door said it would be
impossible because her husband was
away that week-end and she had no one
to mind the baby. The Collegian inquired
eagerly if that was her only reason and
when she said it was he immediately
offered his services saying that he would
mind the balby.
"That," said Mr. Simpson, "was his
He looked expectantly around the
room to see if his pep talk had struck
the responsive chords in the students.
but they were strangely unmoved with
immobile expressions until Guenette
leaned forth and said, "You forgot to
tell us how old the baby was!"
QTHEME SONG OF IICJ
Oh give me a life of pleasure, give me
a life of ease,
My joy I could never measure, to travel
and do as I please,
Don't let the old school bell hold me,
Or sound of the teacher's voice
But let me travel alone, all on my own
And all by myself I'll rejoice
Around the room in French period, I
took a hasty glance,
And I learned right then, why French
was called "the language of romance,"
For there was Guenette struggling, and
trying his very best,
To help sweet, Ruth Walker, out with
that hard French test.
I looked at Betty Thompson, with her
"come hither" smile,
Which Bebee seemed to worship in
French period all the while,
And then blonde Clara Johnson does
let her glances stray
Over towards Burrows, where eventually
they do stay.
Then, Ruth Rankin, in her naive way,
For Upton she does not conceal, the
romance I imply.
Bob Weegar talks to Doreen, he
chatters all the time,
But what they say I Wish I knew, I'd
write it in this rhyme.
And Doris Axler chatters, about her
While I sit back and bemoan the fact
"Poor me, I haven't any!"
Alas for Mr. Hardwick, alas for all us
For while all this goes on in class, how
much French could we do?

WE ASK YOU
VVhat's in that old saying, "Don't tell
tales out of school"? We Fifth formers
are beginning to think it would be a good
idea if it were changed to. "Don't tell tales
in school." For example, the recently
founded order of Babblers incorporated
in a certain room by two twe believe?
When will Mr. Firth realize he
embarrasses us by asking, "VVhat do you
do with all your time anyway?" He
should know by now how earnestly and
patiently we do our homework.
For the first time in the history of
school year 1939-40, and it Leap Year too,
a boy's smile didn't convince Miss Gliddon
that she should reconsider. What's wrong,
Is there really something after all in
that song, "O Johnny"? At least one
teacher thinks so according to many
references which'inspire his jokes.
Is "Rosie" really as shy as he claimed

And so make us by far the best.
, TO THE TEACHERS
Please don't interrupt us
Where there are stars in our eyes
Can't you see it shows
We're dreaming of some bluer skies
Where water flows
And no clams or flies
Are there to bother us?
History and Trig and all that junk
Are far, far away
In some unknown dump.
Music makes our bodies sway
The jitterbugs begin to jump
And we have fun all the day
Instead of sitting like a bump.
On a log in a chemistry lab
Chlorine etc. floating around
Or listening to a teacher gab
About Caesar's army holding ground
We would rather nab
A chance to travel roqnd
In dreams to far off lands.
Again I plead to you
Don't wake us up just to say
So and so you will do
This French for class next day
We don't care if "vous" means "you"
Or "me." So if I may
I'd like to say, "Keep quiet, do!"
Why should we have to learn
All thase subjects each in turn?
French which we may never use,
So why bother to "parlez-vous"g
Geometry with all its detail
Certainly can make one fail,
Biology with its buttercup we find
Is another subject for the grind.
Why worry how many fins a perch does
Or whether an ant lives in a colony or
"Trig," with its sine, tan, and cot
Certainly can muddle one a lot,
Modern History we find quite old
With Napoleon and Louis in its fold.
What does it matter who won the war,
Or whether Britain won all the lore?
Physics is as puzzling as can be,
With all its silly formulae,
Chemistry with its awful smell
Makes our poor heads often swell.
Why do we learn of gold and lead
And other things just as dead?
Algebra also makes our heads go round
With all its book work, deep and sound.
Caesar and Livy develop our Roman
And Latin Grammar gets us down.
Literature and Comp. never thrill us
As we learn of Shakespeare and the such.
So everyone looks forward to the day
When we'll be going on our way
Leaving at last our dear old class
To join perhaps the working mass,
Then school we'll find was not so vile
And fond memories will make us smile
So we will often wish we could return
To that dear old class where we did learn.

Tom on hand-heard her shout,
Jumped right in-pulled her out:
Now he's hers-very nice:
But she had-to break the ice.
SPECIALS BRIGHT SAYING:
If I were an echo, just for a joke,
I'd yell at some guy before he spoke.
Once Daisy Mae Beatty, quite shy,
Said this to a student named Cy,
"Lf you kiss me, of course
You will have to use force,
But thank heaven, you're stronger
wHA'r's SPECIAL ABOUT
She takes pride in her gramophone,
And keeps time with her feet,
While playing records as we groan
To have them changed "toute suite."
We think she hails from Dixie Land,
The way she plays that tune,
We type away to beat the band,
The end comes none too soon.
Archie Clarke, our typing champ,
Plans to help the cause,
And buy new records-"the little
Or order some from Santa Claus.
Edna Smith is not so tall,
In fact she's pretty short,
But in the game of basketball,
We see she's quite a sporta.
Edna has just one hope,
To see her Clyde on ice,
And here we know a periscope
Would help her out quite nice.
Miss Mustard warns Biggs, our movie
He's not the janitor in the school,
"Leave the windows the way they are,
And keep this as a golden rule."
She tells us all to watch our stance,
And breathe the best of air,
But how are we to get a chance,
W'hen there isn't any there?
Mr. Franklin shows the way
To use our brains and get ahead,
And legal methods to make 'em pay,
And keep our books without the "Red."
He claims we're very lazy,
Dunces, so he fears:
"Special hasn't been like this,"
He says, "for years and years."
The favourite words of Mr. Wert,
Refer to those who talk,
And to his room at four we go,
To sit without a squawk.
He tries his best to memorize,
Which names go with which faces,
But how's he to remember,
If we sit in different places?
Miss Walker likes to have our views,
They're few, we must confess,
VVe do our best to answer,
When ,we don't know, we guess.
So Specials not so special.
As you can plainly see,
But gee, we have a lot of fun,
I guess you'll all agree.
