North Bay, Ontario THE NORTHLAND ECHO 13 PBINCIPAIXS DIESSAGE 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 training. F. D. WALLACE.

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 "Miss" Our Board, 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 CANADA Clara Schneebalg 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 Canadian. 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 meaning. 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 my progress. 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- Canada. 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 always cherish. 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 their nets. 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 experienced men. 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 them. A VISIT TO THE ROOF GARDENS 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, amusedly. "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 roof gardens. 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. POPULAR SONGS Jean Waddingto-n 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 songs. 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 example: ' "The jim jam jump is the jumpin' jive Makes you get your kicks on the mellow side Hep-hep, hep-hep." 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. HISTORY OF CALLANDER, ONTARIO 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- 22 THE NORTHLAND ECHO gling cheesecloth had dipped into the glowing smudge. 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 pine logs. 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 Swale. 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 name. 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 plate. 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 suggested. 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. THE NORTHLAND ECHO 23 Gnosrs 1 SHOULD LIKE TO gg-g,1Y'.y, MEET gg: . Betty McGonegal, Form V 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 imagination. 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 of man. These are never terrifying and aveng- ing ghosts, but friendly and real appari- tions. They are the ghosts I should like to meet. it ttf.. Ev: ' I 'I' 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 subject: ti! The fall of post-war Democracies in Central Europe, tiib The concurrent growth of Paci- fism in the western Democracies after the war, tiiii Democracy and its relation to minority opinion, 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 24 THE NORTHLAND ECHO their knowledge and discuxion of public questions. 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 Germany. 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 individual expression. 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 Fascist dictators. 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 dictatorship. 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 I A 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- ance. PIIETBY and VERSE STORM ON LAKE NIPISSING Marian Alford 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 hit 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. TOMIKO 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 raimcnt best, The pine and sumacs fondly the nearby hills caress'd, A little in the background a rugged rock I see, 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 go, I'll always cherish thoughts of Tomiko! -Anonymous THE DUD John Wyatt, Form IIIC He wasn't so progressive He called himself a dud, Waiting till they told him what to dog But for all this "fame," He played a clean straight gameg And every task he always carried through. Later he joined the anny, He told them he was a dud, But his captain had a different point of viewg Although he might not get his cross, He would never be a loss, If he'd wait until they told him what to do. He wasn't so progressive He called himself a. dud, And he waited till they told him wha.t to dog But he won his cross, And he never was a loss, Because his courage always helped to pull him through. 26 THE NORTHLAND ECHO BATTLE OF THE RIVER PLATA tHonorable Mentionl Don Beaumont, III Collegiate PART I There was no wild acclaim of joy, Vifhen the running fight was overg Slowly she passed the harbour buoy, The end of the pirate rover.

The curling foam about her bows, Her sails outspread to snare The gypsy winds of heaven, Like a bird upon the air, And I, too, in night's quiet hours Drift out upon the deep, And sail the Galleon of Dreams Across the waves of sleep, I, too, seek out by Treasure Isle, Set in a sky-blue sea, And anchor at the break of dawn Off the lands of Reality.

THE NORTHLAND ECHO 31 STIIBIES AT A DANCE Frank Cherico, Form V Many stories have been written about dances from the viewpoint of the dancers, but seldom do you hear the viewpoint of the members of the orchestra. To the dancers the life of the musicians seems gay and effortless, but if they were to 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 troubles. 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 one dance. 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 bow-ties. 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 eyes. 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- ment. 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 Florida. "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. "Noel Noel! Born is the King of Israel!" 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 like mad. "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 annoying way. "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 frantic." "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," I exploded. "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." "I-Iow awful!" "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, disappointodly. "No, but the girls had to make their ' THE NORTHLAND ECHO 33 way back into town that night, and they were on the verge of hysteria. when they reached home." "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!" LAVENDER Ross Dickey 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 present. "How about a pair of gloves?" sug- gested Ben. "A woman can always use a new pair." "No," I said, "this has got to be a real present, something that she can wear any time." "How about a pair of shoes?" Ben again suggested. "No, that won't do either because I don't know what size of shoe she wears," I replied. "Well, then, I know the very thing for her," Ben cried. "Some perfume! And I know the very kind and just where to get it." "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 us. "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 yourself." She held the bottle below my nose and I inhaled a strong, sweet smelling aroma, "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 me. "Carry your coat for you Madam?" cried one of the amused people passing by. "Where is the flower show, girlie?" yelled another. "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 suit. 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 about it. The cleaners returned the suit nicely pressed and cleaned, but still a little of the aroma remained. At last, thinking away. that it was useless, I threw the suit So ever since I have never liked the smell of Lavender. ,"V!7','l , I ll fm , W, 1 ' V 3' ,of fm' , , r r , 'fl' ",la"""L 1 ah nf, gy. i' Ury! fvvztfil "P a' "flli.'! ln' ' .thi vvs' 5 1 ' V ' ,ul V fnllg 'JW' '4 ix M1 ' L' -"nl .,,x,,, X I u Jxtf' .

It is not only as coach and players as 3 fvx 26. that we come in contact. but as the best of friends. The only return that he asks is that each boy under him will develop into a clean-cut, courageous, honest young man. There is no need to say what a grand job he is doing: that is very evident.

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 display. Ross Charlton, captain, is the out- standing member of the team and leads the following boys through their paces: R. McCambley, E. Beattie, F. Beattie, C. McManus, E. Byrnes, P. Jennings, G. Kirk, I, Martyn and H. Hughes, Two other boys will be chosen to round out this year's 12-man squad. HOCKEY JUNIOR "B" 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 defeat. 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 Shield. 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, Forwards, R. Sibbitt, T. Frairg Alternates, F. Ringler, G. Kirk, B. Cummings, J. Duff, K. Wagner, G. Cockburn, J. Fin- nigan, B. Marshall and E. O'Donne1l. JUVENILE 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. Cushing, Y. Guenette, M. Guppy, G. Cum- mings, R. Valenti, E. Valenti, E. Gigg, R. Conroy, F. West, Ranger, Wilson, Mantha. MIDGET The Midgets did not win their league title but made the games extremely close. The school's youngest players were big and fast with a surprising amount of hockey knowledge. The Juveniles should be well supplied with top-notch players next year. The team: Thompson, Kilgour, M. Cor- ner, Maxwell, Johnson, Santary, Carr, Gauthier, H. Whitham, Meisenheimer, W. Frair, Hanna. INTERSCHOLASTIC HOCKEY In this field of hockey the Seniors had to drop two regulars. The first obstacle was Sturgeon Falls and on outdoor rinks each school took a. game by a two-goal margin. Then at the arena the Sturgeonites were wal- loped 7-2. Kapuskasing, having previously de- feated Iroquois Falls, Cochrane and Kirk- land Lake, met our team in what was probably the best interscholastic game ever played in this city. Bolstered by a very large crowd, exceptional support from the student body, courage and the incentive to win, the school team won 3-1. The victory brought to us the Ennis Cup, emblematic of the Northern Ontario championship, for the first time. The team travelled to London for the Ontario Secondary Schools Association championship tournament. Three teams besides our own competed. They were Ottawa St. Patrick's College, Albert Col- lege from Belleville and Windsor Assump- tion College. The first night Ottawa St. Pats beat the green and white 2-1 and Windsor defeated Belleville 5-3. The following day 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. IN TERFORM HOCKEY The surprising thing about the junior shield is that the First Formers have taken it from the older Second Formers three out of four times. This year 1E took it from 2B Voc.

Commercial teams are always in the swim for the senior shield. tIt usually is a swim by the time they get to the finals! Interform hockey is known of course for its "roughnecks," its two or three stars who score most of the goals, its test of endurance and courage, to say nothing of the practical jokers. Yet none get more fun than 'the individual inter- form player. This term 3 Commercial outfought 3C Collegiate and coppcd all the glory and a fair share of the bruises. These two teams each took a game by the same score, 4-3. Then a protest was raised and 3C were forced to drop an ineligible player, Patrick Jennings. Third Commercial won the final game 4-2, the Collegians withering under the fire of all Commercial's imports. BASKETBALL Northern Ontario Intermediate "B" Basketball There was a four-team race for the Fosdick Cup in Senior City League bas- ketball. The Collegiate entered two teams. the "A's" and the "B's" so that this would J L3 be possible. The winner was to enter the Northern Ontario Basketball Champion- ship playdowns but as time did not allow the completion of the schedule a special elimination series was arranged. Col- legiate A's were victorious but lost two straight games to Sudbury Incos in a total points to count series. The city league playoffs are not over at the time of this writing but the "A" team, who finished first in the schedule, are favored to win them. "A" Team: Guards, G. Whitham and T. Frairg Centre, G.

Noranda and Kirkland Lake squared off and Noranda took the long series. They in turn were beaten by Timmins High School. On March 30 the school "A" team, strengthened with Jim XYyatt, Cecil M-:Parland and Carl XVeegar from the "B" team. defeated Timmins up north by the score 37-27. This win recaptured the Patton Cup. emblematic of Northern Ontario Interscholastic B a s k e t b a ll supremacy. for the green and white. INTERFORM The junior inieriorm shield was won by IIC Collegiate. They defeated each of the other form teams entered in their division. The senior winners have not been declared but IIIC Collegiate are unde- feated as yet. IVB Collegiate have only been beaten once and that by a T-6 score in a hectic wrestling match. It should be a good series before a champ is declared. RUGBY Practically all the work, time and worry was concentrated on the senior squad last fall with hopes of recapturing the Poupore Cup. The green and white certainly had a formidable team. starting out with four straight wins and com- piling what is believed to be a record. In the first four games, two of which were exhibition, the opposition was out- EXHIBITION The start ot the season was at home, with New Liskeard the guests.

Sturgeon copped the next game 11-10 at home. It was not only our team's first loss but the results were disastrous. Only a skeleton few of the original team were in shape after this game. However, the survivors put up an exceedingly plucky fight and new stars were born. They not only took another game from Sturgeon, 5-0, but sailed through Haileybury in the semi- final, 10-0. Practically all of the regulars were back for the final against Kirkland Lake but were still sadly injured. Our northern opponents won the game 6-O and the Poupore Cup for the first time. They earned their win on the play and we offer our congratulations to the new winners. Only one junior fixture was played this year and that in New Liskeard, The northerners won this 13-1. However. more should be said about the Juniors. They provided opposition for the Seniors in practice sessions. Because they were smaller, lighter and naturally not as experienced, they suffered a great deal but always came back for more. Next year Juniors, you will be the Seniors, so cheer up, your job is well done. Junior Team G.Stevens B. Carr C. McManus YV. Blakeley Senior Team Position L. 'Whitham Halfback F. Frair I.. Reardon G.

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 Day proceedings. 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 possession. 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. SENIOR LITERARY SOCIETY Back Row: D.

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 Vice-President, Ruth Haggartg Secretary-Treasurer, Ray Johnson. Immediately after election, Ray John- son stopped school, and Delna Gibson was appointed Secretary - Treasurer. Then Delna obtained work, so Dorothy Studholme was appointed to fill the position. THE SENIOR LITERARY SOCIETY The Senior Literary Society has had a most successful year during 1939-40, both in entertainment and financially. The first activity of the season was the Annual Hullabaloo, held Friday, November 3. A further report of this J IIPQZHLWQL1lU flglTU'jQjI J 44 THE NORTHLAND ECHO enjoyable affair appears elsewhere in the magazine. The first general meeting was held on Deceniber 20. in the form of a radio prograniinv, with Pat Jennings and Dwight Mc-Burney taking turns as Masters of Ceremonies. Special Commer- cial and Form V were jointly responsible for the meeting. The January meeting was presented by 3.-X. SB and SC. undrr the direction of Miss Jackson and Miss Hamer. The main feature of this programme was a one-act play entitled "The Thought Machine." The senior Oratorical Contest was held March 13 and was won by Ezio Cap- padocia who represented N. B. C. I. K Y.

Mrs. Hoey and Mr, Firth presented the April meeting on Thursday, the 11th, selecting their talent from -1A and 4B. lt was in the form of several musical numbers and a one-act play entitled "Brothers in Arms." Several tt-n dances proved quite pl'O- fitable to the Society, and to the Swing Club Orchestra. The executive is very proud to have been able to give S40 towards the motion picture machine.

The skiers had several successful moon- light hikes. The most important thing as far as we are concernwil is that our skiers won the Central Ontario Interseholastic Ski Charn- I pionship Meet by virtue of having the most points in the final standing. All the more credit is due them because they took a very small team to Huntsville where the meet was held. However wr take an added interest in the Noi-them Ontario and Ontario Championship Ski Meets because the members of the team were much to the fore in both. At the interscholastic events at I-Iuntsf ville, Jim XVyatt won the senior slalom, the combined downhill and slalom and placed eighth in the cross-country. Fred Beattie won the senior jumping, the C0111- bined jumping and cross-country, placed third in the senior slalom and fifth in the senior downhill. Jack Durrell tied for first place in the intermediate downhill, took second in the cross-country and fourth in the jumps. Phil Owen took second spot in the senior downhill. Phil also placed second in the senior jumping and fourth in the cross-country to give him second ranking in the combined jumping and crossecountry. Don Beattie, junior, was third in the combined jump- ing and cross-country. Jim "Doc" Wyatt, number one mem- ber of the team, had a little tough luck at the Ontario meet but emerged from the contests at Temiskaming as senior slalom champion of Northern Ontario.

THE COOKING DEPARTMENT A word of commendation should be said for Miss Bennett and the girls of the Vocational Department who on several occasions provided refreshments at school functions. Among thcse were Commencement, the District Oratorical Contest, the Annual School Play. the School Dance. the Hockey Banquet. and the Rugby Banquet. The chief project of this department was the dinner served for the Regional Conference of the O.S.S.T.F. On all these occasions a great deal of labour was involved, The cordial thanks of the entire school is due Miss Bennett and the girls for their splendid efforts. THE DEBATING SOCIETY Miriam Schneebalg, IIIA Coll. In our school, there actually exists a society which not only affords pleasant afternoons to its members but also helps them considerably when it comes to giving oral compositions. This is the Debating Society. This year under the able leadership of Miss L. Hamer and our president, Ross Charlton. we progremed considerably. The members although not numerous could without exception announce in their turn the weekly meetings, to the assembled school, without any noticeable agitation. Current events were debated by all with a will and our enunciation was improved by the numerous drills in rhythm. There were also the spelling matches and quiz programmes, during which the members tried their best, as if their lives depended upon it. Two members, Sadie Hockman, winner of the Verse Speaking Contest, and Ezio Cappadocia, champion of the Northern Ontario Oratorical Contest, brought honor to the Debating Society and proved its n r'. ie it Our sincere thanks go out to Miss L. Hamer, who gave her valuable aid during critical times and who .never spared us encouragement. 0 qc -18 THE NORTHLAND ECHO 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 Burnrtti for Jackie Sweet tEthel Lockei, ft manicuiist.

She is thc "boss" of the family and insists that her son marry Truly Hunting tJessie Mooreb. 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. The orchestra under the direction of Mr. Hardwick took at large part in making this yt-ar's "School Play" a rncnioi-:iiile and unforgettable success. THE NORTHLAND ECHO 49 'lille Hlwttmm1l.Elmilm1iViurrf. llllutb f fx 0 Walford Reeves 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. THE THREE MUST-GET- THEIRS THE CAST 1. Neville Chamberlain. He is wear- ing morning coat, top hat and is carrying an umbrella. 2. Benito Mussolini. He is dressed as Caesar. 3. Adolf Hitler. Dressed as Napoleon. 4. News Boy. THE SETTINGS This scene takes place at a friendlyf'?J meeting in London. The war has been carried on for several months and the three great powers are preparing to dis- cuss the situation. The scene opens with Mussolini and Hitler in earnest conversation at an open table on one of the streets of downtown London. THE SCENE Hitler: "Well Benito, old boy, I guess we have Chamberlain, the 0-ld fossil, pretty well rattled. As far as I can see he's at his wits end trying to figure out where he stands." Mussolini: "Yes, Brother Adolf, I suppose so, but you see, I don't know just what tot Hitler: tlnterruptingj "Oh, I understand. but nevertheless, remember, we FRIENDS must fight together, Re- call those famous words that Caesar once spoke, 'I came, I saw, I con- quered."' Mussolini: "True enough my friend, Caesar once said, 'I came, I saw. I conquered! but what the deuce could he do with these pesky Britishers? Why, a man can't tell an honest lie or break a foolish convention with- out Chamberlain stamping his foot and saying tmocking Chamb.J 'I say old boy, poor sportsmanship you know. Really, I didn't think you were such a folly cad!"' Hitler: "True, True enough. You have hit upon a delicate subject but, dear friend, while your honour, Caheml is shamed, I, Hitler, Father of Ger- many, slowly starve. Och, it breaks my heart to think of the good old days before these murdering Brit- ishers began this horrible war. How- ever, they insisted on war, so I must fight." Mussolini: "Of course. I will supply you with grapes and some spaghetti, but Adolf, we have more German beer than we can drink, and I'm sick of playing mouth organs." Hitler: "Look, you worm, you signed a pact with me, and you'll keep it if 50 THE NORTHLAND ECHO I have to take your country from you!" Mussolini: "But Adolf. you've broken so many treaties that I thoughttu Hitler: "VVho cares what you thought! If I wish to break a treaty I'll break it, But listen my friend, be careful who you are talking to. You are not speaking to that little puppet Chamberlain." Mussolini: "I'll have you know, sir, that I am just as good a treaty breaker as you are!" Hitler: "All right, all right, calm down. The idea is, that we have to guard our- selves against this outlawed English race and their-their Umbrella Man. VVe can only do this by the closest friendship, CAN'T we, Benito?" Mussolini: ''Yes-ahem-yes-of-course -er-Dear Adolf, but my people you know are-L Hitler: "Whose people?" Mussolini: "Well, er-that is, our people do not feel like playing with this English Bulldog we hear so much about. It has rather a firm grip in the world you know, and although it doesn't do a lot of barking as we do, the old saying still goes, that a barking dog never bites. Especially an UNDERFED one." Hitler: "Enough of that nonsense. I believe in action. I'll show you the way. Let's-oh-shh-" iEnter Cham- berlain? Rise, salute. Chamberlain: "Why, I say there, this is a surprise! I really didn't expect you so early. I would have been here before but the Cricket Matches de- tained me, and we had so much to discuss o-n the outcome of our series. Did you gentlemen have ,something on your mind?" Hitler and Mussolini: Coughing uncom- fortably, try to talk at once-tBothJ "Ahem-er-why nothing of import- ance Mr. Chamberlain." Hitler: Wellser-sit down my friend. Our countries may be at war but we must be friends." Mussolini: "Yes, you old-ahem-you old pal. Sit down. Have some tea?" Chamberlain: "Well, I have dined gentle- men I trust you have too?" Hitler: "No, we haven't. I have not been accustomed to dining heavily. The war and business and-well, I have been cutting down somewhat on my meals, Doctor's orders you know." Chamberlain: "Hmm, Doctor Goebbels, I presume." Hitler: "Why no, no, my personal physi- cian. The strain and all that you know." Chamberlain: "Yes, yes I know . . ." Mussolini: "Well gentlemen, the discus- sion of the Balkan States was to be our topic. Herr Hitler, would you express your views?" Hitler: "To be frank, I need the Balkans, but I do not intend to take them by military force. I would not dream of that." u Chamberlain: "Unconsciously, I suppose." Hitler: '.'What was that?" Chamberlain: "I said that was gracious of you." Hitler: "Oh. That's fine. So gentlemen, to relieve tension I can be depended upon to stay clear of the Balkans. Do I make myself clear and under- stood?" Chamberlain: "Yes, clear but not under- stood. You see, Adolf, I know you." Mussolini: "May I have an opportunity of speaking my views?" Hitler: "Whose views?" Mussolini: "Well-er-I was trying to tell Mr. Chamberlain, that Italy was not in a position to worry him, but ifi Hitler: ilnterruptingj "But if the need be you will stand by Germany. WON'T you, Benito?" Mussolini: "Well I was trying to say that- Hitler: "Yes, I know what you were try- ing to say, but don't. I think you had an appointment to keep. DIDN'T you?" Mussolini: "Oh, yes, that's quite right. I must ibe going." Chamberlain: "Well, that's too 'bad old man, but we will get together some day soon. Won't we?" Mussolini: "Why, yes, Well-er-good- bye gentlemen." CExit Muss.J Hitler: "The worm. My best friend and I can't trust him. You know, Neville, old iboy, the two of us should sneak in and get both the Balkans and Italy, then split the spoils." Chamberlain: "Really, I hadn't thought of it. But remember, you must live up to your pledge." Hitler: "Oh yes, yes, of course, I forgot. Stupid of me." Chamberlain: "Yes, it was rather. No less than ordinary of course." Hitler: "I beg your pardon." Chamberlain: "I said, it wouldn't be possible." Hitler: "Oh, no, I guess not. Well, dear friend, I must be going. I have an appointment with my doctor.' Chamberlain: "Dr, Goebbels?" Hitler: "All right, Dr. Goebbels. Good- bye." Chamberlain: tSitting by himself! "Well, the velvet hand was exposed, but I THE NORTHLAND ECHO 51 wonder if the hidden one wasn't an iron claw." Enter Mussolini Mussolini: "Mr. Chamberlain, I just had to see you,before I left. You see. Hitler has been forcing my hand and making demands on me." Chamberlain: "Really. From the conver- sation I would never dream it. You appeared to be so friendly." Mussolini: "On the surface. On the sur- face, that's all. Oh Mighty Caesar, pardon my seek- ing aid, but the day has come when I must get help. Can't you understand Mr. Chamber- lain?" Chamberlain: "Yes, of course. I under- stand. You were thinking that WE should go against GERMANY?" Mussolini: "Exactly! Exactly! How did you ever think of it?" Chamberlain: "Oh, things come to me like that you know. It's the English kind of mental telepathy. We always can tell what the other fellow is thinking and then we just beat him to it." Mussolini: "Oh, is that right?"- Chamberlain: "But don't look so wor- ried, Benito, my boy." Mussolini: "Oh, I'm not. I just thought maybe we had better postpone any arrangements until later." Chamberlain: "Yes, a very good idea. You run along and mind your P's and Q's and let the 'old fossil' take care of things. And, he will." Mussolini: "Yes-Well, good-bye and remember, I'm your friend." Chamberlain: "Yes, I know, I have two great friends like you. Nice fellows." Exit, Mussolini Chamberlain: 1Leaving the stagel flaugh- ingb Cha, hai "My English sense of friendship has been seriously strained.

Le but de ce club est d'enseigner aux mem- bres le franqais conversationnel, et de leur aider it mieux comprendre la lan' gue frangaise. Aujourd'hui une personne qui sait par- ler le francais and Vanglais a plus de chance a obtenir une position qu'une personne qui parle seulement une lan- gue. Ce sont les deux principales langues du Canada et l'une est aussi importante que l'autre. Nous avons "deux langues, mais une seule idee." Pendant une crise comme cellc d'au- jourd'hui, il est tres important que les peuples frangais et anglais soient en aussi bon tormes d'amitie qu'ils le sont DITE - E is Ngm FTIED EDA DQATE 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 d'eleves frangais. .Vespere qu'a l'avenir il y aura tou- jours un club franqais dans cette ecole.

Maintes fois, dans mes loisirs enfan- tins. je gravis la colline pour entendre soupirer le zephir dang tes branches nouees, et rcgardais l'oiseau monter, des- cendre, puis se cacber dans ta cirne pour m'enivrer de son Chant si pur. et guet- tait l'ecureuil qui me regardait de ses yeux noirs a travers l'epais feuillage, et la rouge-gorge deposer son nid it l'abri de Vorage, entre la terre et les cieux. Mais comme tout ici-bas prend fin, un jour je t'ai vu, 6 geant de la foret, courber ta venerable tete devant la. flamme rapido qu'une main incendiere avait allumee, ot dans tes bras seculaires, tu emportas avec toi l'ombre du passe.

Why Miss Ash spoke of poison when so many wrong answers were given one French period.-Was she thinking of sui- cide or murder? If Muriel Beaton will ever wear her gym suit. If Evelyn McGee will ever prepare an oral ahead of time. Why Kay Richards likes that popular song, "Oh, Johnny." Why Dorothy Meeking never has her supplementary reading 'book ready when Miss Morgan asks tor it. Is it because she is so busy, such as . . .? After walking through the dark, creepy First Floor corridor one morning, we girls very easily answered the health question, "What is the name given to the framework of the body?" Scene: Ashville's land of Health and Beauty. Miss Ash: "What is happening when you eat?" Pupil: "Your trunk is being packed.' Miss Ash: "What other French word means to continue or go on with the same things?" Pupil: "Etcetera" Form IB Miss Walton N .

It is made up of girls and teacher you see: The girls in the form are not smart for their size And if awards were out-given thcy'd take the prize. First there comes Marg Beatty, The kids call her "Beets," She loves to stick gum On the backs of the seats. Next Edith Firth, so meek and mild, Tall Betty Russell, a talkative child, Jean and Doretta, the McGillivray girls. Nelda Zufelt, the one with the curls. Next Mabel Smith, our basketball ace: Loving Gwen Darling, and her Smiling face: Gloria with her red hairy Connie and Shirley, the perfect pair.

THE RED CROSS SLEIGH DRIVE 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 wind 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. I thank you so much.

Two Collegians were scarcely seated in the theatre before one of them nudged the other and asked, "What does that word 'asbestos' mean across the curtain?" "Pipe down." was the answer, "and don't show your ignorance. That's Latin for Welcome." Egg-zactly, Dalton Weegar's mother sent him for three dozen eggs and he decided to save time by going for them on roller skates.-You are quite correct. That is just what happened. Mrs. Henderson: "Keith, stop using such dreadful language." Keith: "But mother, Shakespeare uses it." Mrs. Henderson: "Then don't go with him: he's no fit companion for you."

GENERAL JOKES By Walford Reeves This world is old, yet likes to laugh: New jokes are hard to find. A whole new editorial staff Can't tickle every mind.

Form IIA Collegiate Miss Wales POPULAR SONGS OF THE DAY "The Boy lNamed Len and the Girl Named Sue" were talking to the "Shabby Old Cabby" about the "Deep Purple" shade of the "Blue Orchids" in the vase on the table in the picture of the "18th Century Drawing Room." Now, said Len, "If I Only Had a Brain" I could paint a picture of the "Yellow Brick Road" that leads "Over the Rainbow." After the "Shabby Old Cabby" left, "The Boy Named Len" asked the "Girl Named Sue" to marry him, He said "Because of All thc Things You Are," "I Promise You" I'll be "Faithful For- ever." She said no, that she wouldn't marry him but before they parted "She Must Have One More Kiss" and also one more hot-dog and relish from "The Little'Hot- Dog Stand." So they did and then said "Goody-Good-bye." A WALK TO SCHOOL It was a very cold WINTERS morn- ing and I was taking my time over some BARLEY that I was having for break- fast. My mother told me I BETTY LEWIS no MO'RE time because I knew she was WAISER than I. As I was sliding on the BANKS of the ditches while coming to school one of my teachers came SAUNDERING around the corner trying to WARD off the cold wind with her hands. I LONEY'D her my BLACK ear muf.s for her ears. We walked together for a while and then JOI-INSTON'S milk truck came along and gave us a ride. The back of the truck was filled with STOCK'ALE and we all had a drink. WHAT WOULD BECOME OF IIA IF Betty D. didn't giggle all period. Bernice S. didn't try to be funny, Evelyn W. got below 90 in her exams. Marion L. and Betty L. didn't have detentions, Ethel F. got her hair cut. Ena S. quit singing. Mary O. got a detention. Grace M. didn't chew gum, Shiela B. didn't sharpen her pencil every period. Katherine M. forgo-t to go to the Study Hall before 9 o'clock. Dorothy A. didn't get flustered. Jessie S. sat properly in her seat. P.S.-She did get it cut. YOU DON'T SAY! Miss Wales tafter finishing a new les- sonlz "Now girls, you watch the board and I'll run through it once more." Mr, Hardwick tquieting IIAJ: "Come, come gir1s." Bernice S.: "Where are we going?" During the discussion of the two words principal and principle: Teacher: "Yes, Dorothy?" Dorothy: "Is Mr. Wallace a. p-a-I?" THE NORTHLAND ECHO 61 A DAY WITH IIA OUR MOTTO E. Saunders 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 smile Greet Miss Wales to whom we're very docile. After the assembly to the lab we march in style 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 to chat 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 the corridor, Our dinner has been eaten, we're on our way to school, Not to be late, not to be late is IIA's golden rule. The afternoon soon passes till comes our daily French 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 Anonymous. 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. Evelyn Moore.

Constant 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 gloats, 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 portray All jitterbugs and sports at night and dozing all next day, Teachers hint that for lethargy 2C is notorious 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 McGonegal twin? Is there any special reason for Irene Simkin's anxiety that her name would not be coupled with George Cummings' in the school magazine?

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 Davis. Well- 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 to know! JOKING! Mr. Simpson: "McIntyre, stop that talking!" 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 doing?" Bebee: "Nothin'." Miss Walton: "That's not hard to believe." 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?" Marian: "Dunno." 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- row night?" Miss Walton: "Now, Guenette, it's not convenient for me to come tomorrow night." Guenette: "Well now, Miss Walton, it's not convenient for me to come to- night." Editor: "You wrote every line of this poem yourself I understand?" Poet: "Yes sir, every line." Editor: "Well, I'm glad to meet you Edgar Allan Poe. I thought that you were dead long ago!" THE NORTHLAND ECHO 65 Girl: "Are you a toe dancer?" Partner: "No!' Girl: "Then get off my toes." "Time stands still when I'm with you, dear." No wonder, your face would stop a. clock!" .- 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 amusement: "One evening," Mr. Hardwick did relate, "Finds a gentleman going to keep a date, With his girl-friend at his girl-friend's house, 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 fled." 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 whole-hearted spirit." 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!" AH HEAVEN!- 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 IIC ROMANCES 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, that's shy 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 romances many While I sit back and bemoan the fact "Poor me, I haven't any!" Alas for Mr. Hardwick, alas for all us too, For while all this goes on in class, how much French could we do? 66 THE NORTHLAND ECHO IIIA Collegiate Mr. Hardwick George Barker FORM NOTES Miss Hamer: "Gwendolyn, what was the character in the Bible called Job afflicted with?"

Miss Gliddon: "Taylor, why don't you walk right?" Taylor: "I can't3 my ancestors were apes." The topic was the comparing of the prices of men's and wornen's clothes. Miss Morgan: "It costs just as much to make a skirt as to make a pair of man's trousers." Wigston: "But don't women buy more clothes?" Miss Morgan: "How do you know so much about women's clothes, Wigston?" VVigston: "I've got three sisters." A FRENCH PERIOD Theres a scuffle going on ahead. It's VViggy and Martin throwing lead. West and Cummings fight it outg Torrance and Godin start a bout. Sadie and Miriam scratch and spitg June and Lila growl a bit. Peaver and Holmes gab and grin, Duquette swings at Taylor as he sticks out his chin. Mr. Hardwick lays lustily about, But a flying book gives him a lusty clout. The teacher is hit on the chin By a spitball aimed at Gwendolyn. He jumps in the air with a shriek and a roar, And goes off his nut for evermore.

What happened to make Frances S. sit sideways in that roomy seat in Miss Gliddon's room? Why Marg. P. has started taking pri- vate lessons in Algebra from Mr. Moore. What is in those long notes Barbara C. is always writing. Why B. Clarke goes with her brother or is H. Clarke her brother? Where Marion A. got that ring that's too big for her. She didn't have it before she went to London. Why Betty E. blushes so sweetly when anybody mentions Archie? Why E. Meeking has found such a sudden interest in dancing. They say he's a jitterbug. Why did Dorothy Burrows change the words of a popular song to, "When I walk I like to walk with Reggie."

Our Latin marks go from the top to the bottom, And as far as French marks, well, We just haven't got them. In History we wish that someone had forgotten To tell about Marathon Sparta and Athens. About Composition Miss Hamer will say That we'll never be authors for many a day. At last comes our Literatureg dull most of the time, Why the poems in Abe Lincoln don't ever rhyme!

"Don't tell tales in school." For example, the recently founded order of Babblers incorporated in a certain room by two twe believe? certain teachers. 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, Cummings? 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 to be one day when Miss Gliddon took it upon herself to introduce some of our girls to him? What order of Insecta does a jitterbug belong to?

HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR LITERATURE PERIODS Miss Hamer certainly puts across her ideas to one certain pupil at least. She had been vainly stressing the idea of seeing th- pictures in the poetry we were reciting without much success until she called upon Monsieur Vinette. Our "Orson Welles" Vinette had taken this teachei-'s words to heart with the follow- ing result: A lover sighing like a furnace with woeful BALLAD, became a lover sighing like a furnace with woeful BLASTS. Apparently he was picturing it too well. THE NORTHLAND ECHO 73 Miss Hamer would appreciate any information she could get on a certain puzzling subject. Shakespeare claims that the centre of one's affections then was the liver. Miss Hamer would like to know if they used livers on Valentines instead of hearts. Anyone know? If so, Miss Hamer is waiting to be enlightened. VTH Who says our fifth is not the best? Why of course we far exceed the rest! No form's pupils are quite so bright Nor are we' exceeded in wit or might. Ask any teacher and they can tell How all our homework t'?l we do so well. But casting all these jokes aside, Now of our pupils we will chide. Fifth Form's pupils are large and small, Some are short and some are tall. We have the famous McGonegal twins, VVho are as much alike as two straight pins, "Doc" Wyatt is our man with wings Who skims the air as the wind does sing, Eleanor Jennings Miss Gliddon can never find And Whitham, Hall, Duff and Cummings all have a hockey mind. They are the backbone of our team VVhile Vinette with his orations is a scream, "Daisy" is our "Guiding Light" in the show, And Cherico, Willoughby and Rosevear make our orchestra go. Misses McDonald, McCubbin, McAughey are all Scotch lasses VVho uphold "Bonny Scotland" in our classes. Misses McGibbon and Robertson in Biology shine So Mr. Firth thinks they are quite fine. Rivet at Latin is a whizz Just as Helen McGillivray in basketball is. So you see why Vth is best VVith these above and all the rest, Our classes echo with wit and zest 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? 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 own Or whether an ant lives in a colony or alone. "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 frown And Latin Grammar gets us down. Literature and Comp. never thrill us much 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.

Barry POEMS In 2A Commercial you can easily say, That four angels were born one September day Now, the funny part of it is, they haven't a wing They laugh and talk, they dance and sing. But in our form they are the best They cheer us up when comes a test Why they form the back-bone of the school You've never heard of them breaking a rule lmuchl They are Enfborg, Neals, Vrebosch and Barry And this good record may they always carry. Now in our form we have two doves, VVho think that they are much in love So together they make quite a pair B. C. and A. P. are the two little lads Now if you wish to know the gals Their names are Biers and O'Hare. WE WONDER Why: B. Enborg is always humming "Oh Johnny." but slightly changes the name to Jack. What: G. Buskey was thinking of when she wrote the words "You Essay" rather than "U.S.A." What: Girl in our form wants all the girls around her to keep quiet during a free show or performance because she wants to get her money's worth. Who: C. Granger was thinking of when she wrote the word "Graftsmen" rather than "Craftsmen," Why: H. Tyers' phone is always busy on Saturday nights-Wouldn't be because she is keeping house-Would it? Why: P. Neales always wishes to go thru' the "Study Hall" during a certain time of day. Why: W. Barry's theme song has suddenly changed to "Billy." I. O'Hare: "How do you write 'Clause?' " Mr. Foster: "Oh! there are many different ways of writing it." I. O'Hare: "But I mean like in Santa Claus." Mr. Foster: "It really doesn't matter, he'll get your letter anyway." Mr. Foster: fafter reading a note found in one of the desksl "Now if you see a girl walking around the school with a broken heart, try to patch it up for her." Bright Pupil: "Well, how will we know if who ever she is has a broken heart?" Mr. Foster: "That's easy to see, all you have to do is look at her." Bright Pupil: "Wow! It must be pretty bad." F. Vendetti: treading her compositionl "Then I became so frightened, my bones began to rattle." Bright Pupil: "Gee, was that bony." Miss Mustard: "Who can make a. sentence with the Word "datum?" Bright Pupil: "Boop Boop ditum datum watum choo." AMBITIONS OF IIA M. Lovell-Night Club Singer. I-I. Tyers-Phone Operator. G. Vrebosch-Seamstress. L. Brown-Somebody's Private Secre- tary. F.

WANT ADS FOR IIA Wanted: Romantic young man for a little "Damsel in Distress." Nothing but Debonaire will be accepted. Wanted: An unbreakable mirror for V. Seguin. Apparently she is unfortunate. for 14 years-henceforth. Wanted: Experienced jitterbug to accompany a rug-cutter. TG THE NORTHLAND ECHO Miss Mustard: tSeeing V. Seguin doing shorthand? "Vivian, is that your best subject?" V. Seguin: "No, it's my second best." Mis Mustard: "Whats your best?" V. Seguin: "Typing" Miss Mustard: "Well, it's too bad you couldn't carry your typewriter along with you." Mr. Foster: "Miss Cole, will you read exercise 51, please?" M. Cole: treading? "They say hard work will kill you." Mr. Foster: "Oh! no, no, no, is that why you didn't read it over a second time?" Miss Gardner: Lafter giving the class a lecturei "Now Madeline, what do you remember of what you read?" M. Rivet: "Hem-Take things calmly." I. O'Hare: "Hey, Barry, were you ever in love, were you? I was." W. Barry: "VVho me? Only crazy people fall in love." D. Ferris: "Well, Isobelle, I always thought there was something wrong with you."

One day as we w.re idling around the hall near Mr, Franklin's room we heard Helen Faye and Audrey Buchanan har- monizing. Helen was singing "O Tommy" and Audrey was crooning "O Herbie." We thought it wasn't bad. We also wondered about the connection. VVhere were Helen Faye and Audrey Buchanan Thursday afternoon before opening night? They are now known as the "sun bathe-rs."

We have variety in our third form, For when Berta Thorpe walks by T-- Horn, 'I'here's usually something in the wind, And she won't stop till she catches him. And now we come to our smart Brunette, She is called by everyone, Laurette, She just has to stop and wink her eye, And it makes J- W-- fall in line. Now Irene Seguin who is very smart, Thought it wise for her to depart, Although she loved our dear IIIA, She works in Zeller's day 'by day. Buddy Avery is our pretty blonde, She and Mervin parade around And Elva Gittins who is in our class, Never works but sits and laughs. Donalda McLeod is very, very quiet, But never does her homework nights. In talent IIIA does not despair, For our Kay Trounsell takes the air. And Dorothy Dowdall also sings, She can trill to most anything, Thelma Fraser and Genevieve Wright, Never do know where to alight. And there we have third form in review, This commercial form bids you adieug We won't be with you another year, And we do hate to leave our Collegiate dear. -Irene Gauthier. CHIT CHAT Helen Carfagnini Well, it seems that the announcement made by Mr. Wallace concerning form parties didn't worry IIIA Commercial for very long. The party was held at the home of Berta Thorpe and there was music and dancing after everyone got tired tobogganing at Thibeault Hill. The girls brought their escorts and everyone had a wonderful time. Berta and a few of her friends served lunch and the party was brought to a close in the wee hours of the morning. Dear me! It seems that IHA is going to lose one of its best pupils. Irene Seguin has decided to leave us and join the staff at Zeller's. Of course we are glad to see her getting places but it seems that a liability for good old IIIA means an asset to Zeller's. However, we all wish her lots of luck with her new job. I suppose you all remember that old. old song, "An Apple for the Teacher." Well, it seems some of the IIIA girls wanted to see how it would be if they acted it out. So when Mr. Foster came into the room one fine day and found a beautiful shiny red apple on his desk he picked up the note under it and read. "An apple for the teacher. That seems the thing to do. Because we want to learn about romance from you." The class sat waiting patiently for him to say something but he thought it best to have out a good laugh first and then he promised us that he would at least see what he could do about it. I guess it was hopeless though because we are still waiting for that lesson. In case Mr. Foster has forgotten we hope this will remind him. During a. discussion on food products the other day, Miss Bennett asked "If you were going in to buy a piece of neck in a butcher store, how would you ask for it?" Pupil answered brightly-"I wanna neck." IN TEACHERS Mustard but no Keene's Gardner but no garden Walker but no Walk Franklin 'but no Roosevelt Bennett but no I-Ion, R, B. Foster but no dentist JOKES Mr. Franklin: "Is it illegal to run a marriage bureau? Yes. But is it illegal for a man to advertise in a newspaper for a wife? Then answering his own question and blushing furiously he explained hastily, 'Of course, I'm not con- sidering doing it."' Mr. Franklin: "Mr, Dionne used to run a sheep farm, eh?" Helen Carfagnini to Dorothy D.: "Yeah, but kids were more profitable." Irene Seguin-!In Miss Gardner's roomlz "Gee, I feel a draught." Helen C.: "Oh, don't mind that. It's ix-om the drafting room across the hall." Bernice Donaldson: "Remember the guy who had this?" flndicating a heart- shaped brooch on her dressy. Beatrice Russell - tInnocentlyJ: "Uh, huh. Is he in the hospital now?" T8 THE NORTHLAND ECHO ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP IIIB Commercial Mr. Foster Dorothy Robinson DEDICATORY I want to be on some mountain peak, Hear the thunder roar, watch the light- ning streak Across the sky, with 3, blinding flash, VVhile the echoes rebound with a deafen- ing crash. I want to live on some mountain crest, And build a homc where the eagle's nest, Far off from the rushing noisy crowds, A haven of rest amid the clouds. And there on that sequestered dome, I'll live in peace. no more to roarn, Free as the birds that soar on high: Secluded I'll live until I die. And there will I forever rest, Just lay my head on Mother Nature's breast, My path will be short when I hear the call, Just a step or two from my mountain tall. WE WONDER Why Elsie Moore waited till March to give Mary a New Year's card. Why snickering comes from Bernice when she holds a tiny black book before her. Why Beatrice carries that same little black book with her and jots down a few things now and then. Who suggested "The Duchess" for Dorothy R. and why? How Mary gets such good marks when "I never opened a book," Slight intelli- gence, I'd say. Why Mr. Foster finds the girls of IIIA so nice. Surely not any special attraction. Of could it be that apple???? Why Dora blushed so terrible when she told Mr. Foster that she didn't have any dates. Not very good at telling lies, eh Dora? Why Pearl Letts wanted to know who a certain Cockburn is in IIB Vocational. Genevieve Wright keeps a stern watch on a few of the special corridors around here. Why Donalda McLeod comes in at the last minute every day. Why Beatrice Russell has been so cheerful lately. Is it all patched up Bea, or is it a new one? Miss McNamara: "If you are a new 4-mployc in an office how should you go about finding things out without bothering thc otherstoo often?" Thr-lma Fraser: "Figure it out for yourself." To our dear friend Arthur Duquette who left our class to earn his living in the "business wor1d."-By Preece,ancl Gigg. Our friend Duquette has gone away: I-Ie's gone away from here to stay. He may come back some other day To his friend DeMarco in the Bay. Poor Duquette is working hard: He's many feet below the ground. His hands are getting rough and tough. It shows Art's made of the proper stuff. But soon the work will get him down Because he has no time to fool: For when a letter comes from Al He wishes they were playing pool. SPORTS FLASH He shoots: he scores! Yes, IIIB Com. whizzed their way into the position of champions in the Senior Interform Hockey League of the school. The 'bril- liant players consisted of practically all the form, due to the fact that there are only fifteen boys in the class. Yes, the old saying goes, "Bright boys are good hockey players." Our lboys were using the lbrain as well as the brawn. Special Com. Miss McNamara THEY SAY: Ethel Locke Alvin Ashford: "What time is it?" Christina Beatty: "Hello little glrl." Mr. Foster: "Now, will yo-u write?" Muriel Watson: "Well, well, imagine that!" Bill Biggs: "Let's put up the window." Tom Horn: "I washed my hair, and I can't do a thing with it." Edith Roynon: "Do you know what he's talking about?" Ethel Locke: "So I ain't neat!" Archie Clarke: "Guess I'll go to school today. Or will I?" Margaret Robertson: "I wish I had my book here, I wish." Bob Wyatt: "Go ahead, I'm awake." CHATTER It really happened-Spelling period in Miss Mustard's room. Biggs: "What's that funny smell in here?" Wyatt: "Oh that! Why that's fresh air." As usual Audrey Kimberley didn't liavc hcr shorthand homework donc, and THE NORTHLAND ECHO 79 Mr. Foster became rather angry. Throw- ing down his book, he exclaimed, "Miss Kimberley, just what do you do with your nights, anyway . . . Oh well." Miss McNamara: "Martin, what have you in your mouth?" Martin: "My toiguef' Miss McNamara: "Well, don't you know you are not supposed to chew it like that." Martin still wonders how one IS sup- posed to chew one's tongue. Sylvia: "That's nice material in your new jacket. Ashford: "Do you like it?" Sylvia: "Yes, and I like the colour, too. It's too bad you couldn't get your Smeg., Elva: did she give you a dirty look." ' Marjorie: "Who?" Elva: "Mother Nature." Honest, didn't Miss Mustard look cute with that velvet bow in her hair? Archie works in a downtown book store. One day a gentleman came in to buy a pen. Archie showed him one, and asked him to try it. The man covered a page with the words Tempus Fugit. Archie came along with another pen and said, "Maybe you'd like this one better, Mr. Fugit." No, Archie's all right. POME Slippery ice-very thing Poor Vera-tumbled ing Saw a fella-on the bank, Gave a shriek-then she sank: 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 than I." wHA'r's SPECIAL ABOUT SPECIAL 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 scamp"- 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 star, 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. -Lafontaisie and Martin, SO THE NORTHLAND ECHO Miss Beaton, Muriel Burrows.
