TRANSLAKE CLUB The Oakwood Translake Club is only half a club. The other half is in Arcadia High — Rochester, N.Y. Both halves carefully research and discuss topics like segrega- tion, the French-Canada problem and others. They send a delegation here to debate the points on which we dis- agree and together we solve the problems we ' ve chosen — on paper. We give them a royal welcome, dance and social which helps to cool us off after a heated debate. Later we go down to Rochester to get the red carpet treatment. In the club, it ' s what ' s up top that counts. We put our gi " ey matter into action often. Meeting and talking to the other kids helps to remove the stereotyped impression we have about Americans and starts friend- ships. What do we get out of it? New friends, good times, new ideas, — the basis for understanding. Warren Bourgeois Top Row: Stu Campbell, Ron Matsugu, Sam Lombardo, Graham Smith, Gerald AAachtiwork. Seated: Garfield AAcCaul, Roberta Fisher, Robert Abrey (President), Mary Hecht, Bill Briggs. Absent: Dianne Pasker, Miss Orok (staff sponsor). DANCE COMMITTEE The 1964-65 Welfare Committee has aimed at an all- time high objective of $3200.00 and, although, at the time of writing we are slightly behind the pace which we set for ourselves, we are hopeful that, in the spring, everyone will come through in true Oakwood fashion and we will reach this goal. During this year we sent representatives to the United Appeal Dinner, visited various U.A. agencies and sup- ported a special United Appeal week during which we raised over $400.00, a new high for Oakwood. In Dec- ember there was the annual Christmas Basket collection and by the time when you read this a special UNESCO Drive will have been held. We should like to thank the members of the com- mittee, all the class treasurers and especially the student body whose support has made this year the success we hoped it would be. Robert Abrey. Top Row: Warren Bourgeois, (President), Bob Pinkerton, Isaac Adier. Seated: Robin Sears, Kathy Gaby, Roberta Brusatin, Miss Rogers (staff sponsor). WELFARE COMMITTEE The Dance Committee has had a good year up to this point in the school of 1964-65. The Committee has more enthusiastic members (who don ' t mind paste and paint) than in past years. And we proved that hard work can be fun as we prepared for the annual Sadie Hawkins, two Commencements. Tea Dances and the semi- formal, Oakwood ' s " Fantasy in White. " And the work was worth it every time. ' The At-Home, " Candlelight in Camelot " is yet to come at this writing, but when a dance is held at Casa Loma with the O.C.I. Dance Committee behind it, it ' s sure to be a triumph for Oakwood. Three cheers! for the committee members, Hip Hip Hurray! for the enthusiastic dancers, and cross your fin- gers for an even better next year (if that ' s possible)!

Many of these members work hard to help with the school ' s various activities in one form or other. Very few people realize what it takes to have a dance, an Athletic Night, a Masquers production or an Auditorium. Yes, the Stage Crew are the lads behind the scenes who ' s work doesn ' t need recognition because it is ap- preciated throughout the school. You never hear of them. In fact many students aren ' t aware of this club ' s contributions, and there are many. But with these con- tributions, we hope to keep Oakwood the top school.

Each of the fifty members of the Library Club donates approximately sixty hours of his time to assist the other students and staff in checking books out of the Library, renewing books, shelving books, dealing with overdues, helping with reference problems, making attractive bulletin boards and keeping the library neat and attractive. Last year we circulated 12,255 books in four months. This averages 9.4 books per student for this period. Ap- proximately 2,000 books were added to our collection last year. Besides working in the Library, the Library Club mem- bers collected over 800 books which they sent to a secondary school in Grenada. In September they enter- tained many of the new teachers in a get-acquainted tea in the Library. At the weekly Monday meeting book reviews were given by Mr. Brooks, Mr. Dunn, Mr. Hep- burn and Mr. Putnam. The young people ' s Librarian from Earlscourt Public Library provided a stimulating meeting with some of her new books. Last year we had an exciting social life, the chief event being our weekend trip by train to Clark Road Secondary School in London, Ontario. Forty members attended our annual Chinese Dinner and we ended a very successful year with a picnic at Centre Island in June. We are most grateful to our sponsor, Mrs. Donaldson, who with her unfailing guidance helped make this a most rewarding year for the Library Club. EVELYN DORISH. Top Row: Peter Petzold, Stu Campbell, Bob Antony- shyn. Seated: Peter Mueller, Mr. Lobb (staff sponsor), Fred Stoppel (president), Terjo Valve. B. A. A. The B.A.A.. team coaches and Mr. Lobb worked espec- ially hard this year and as a result we successfully organi- zed intramural and inter-school athletic programs. The Bantam and Junior Football teams reached their divisional playoffs and the Bantams emerged as city champions. Under the careful supervision of Bob Antony- shyn all grades participated in intramural basketball. During the winter season the Grade Elevens foimed an intramural hockey league. During winter and under the watchful eye of Mr. Lobb, the Grade Twelves and Thir- teens had a pushball league which was very successful. The successful Athletic Year for Oakwood was climaxed by the annual athletic banquet. FRED STOPPEL

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC It is often said that one of the most satisfying of personal accompHshments is learning how to play a musical instrument. But far greater is the satisfaction of knowing that you possess the skill to be part of a musical organ- ization, and to contribute to the success of that organ- ization by performing well a piece of music that not only appeals to yourself, but one that you know gives pleasure to your listeners. For many hundreds of Oakwoodites, the only opportunity to gain this musical background is through their participation in one of our instrumental groups; the Junior Orchestra, the Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. The Junior Orchestra is for many students the first opportunity to exhibit their skills in public. The first performances are always very nervous undertakings, but the thrill of being part of a group, and the satisfaction of doing a job well always overcomes the early uneasi- ness. This Year ' s Junior Orchestra, directed by Mr. Chapman, was no exception. After its excellent perform- ances at the Christmas Assemblies and at Music Night, 68 Senior Orchestra, Top Row: Michael Cobus, Forbes West (President), Graeme Page. Seated: Sue Campbell, Virginia Vanstone, Mrs. Kumagai (staff sponsor), Marsden Barrick, Joanne Minken. it may well feel proud. The Concert Band, under the direction of Miss Hay, had another successful year. It entertained at the Junior Commencement and at various assemblies held in the school. An exchange program was arranged with Humber- side Collegiate, in which the Humberside Band played at a special assembly at Oakwood, and our Band at a similar assembly at Humberside. The Concert Band ended the year with a most successful performance at Music Night. The Senior Orchestra and its conductor Mrs. Kumagi had one of the busiest years in memory. In addition to the traditional Christmas and numerous other assembly performances, the Orchestra played at Massey Hall in the January Music Festival. Later in the year, an exchange program with a high school in Ottawa was also arranged for the Senior Orchestra. This was indeed a thrilling trip, not only because of the chance to appear before a new audience, but also because of the pleasure of visiting
