NOWN to thousands of boys across Canada by reason of his work with the
National Boys' Work Board and his association with the Tuxis and Trail-
Ranger pro grammes,-known to many others who have camped with him in Algonquin
Park,-Taylor .Ytatten is best known to us as Director of Vocational Guidance and
Character Education in this school since 1927.
In March of this year, "Chief", as he has been ajjtectionatebf known, under-
took as a war-time responsibiligf the onerous duties of General Secretary of the Metro-
politan Board of the Toronto Y.M.C.A. He is, therefore, no longer associated
with us as an active member of our sta jf but his wise counsel will still be available
as he is a member of our Board of Management.
To him, in gratitude for his contribution to the developing life of this school
during the past sixteen years and with our confident hope that he will long continue
to exert his great fund of wisdom and experience on behalf of the boys and young
men of Canada, this volume is sincerely dedicated.

A Personal Word
"The traliant soul is still the same, the same.
The strength, the art, the inevitable grace,
The thirst unquenched for fame . . .
The long obedience and the knightly flame
Of loyalty to honour and a name."
T THE CONCLUSION OF FOUR YEARS, OPCY3-
tions of the School during the tragedy of
f a world at war, it is almost inevitable that
my mind should be dominated by the con-
sciousness of what that struggle has meant
to our School and to our 6cOld Boys". For years we watched the gathering
storm clouds on the international horizon, for a few more years we heard
the storm breaking in what we then thought were out-of-the--way places,
one fateful day the storm broke in all its fury on our own heads. Even
yet, however, the full horror was not unloosedg not until the following
spring did we fully realize the enormity of the challenge that had been
thrown to that portion of the world that believed in decency, fairness, honour
and uthe soul of mann. This is not the place to discuss the mistakes which
brought this thing to pass, nor is it the place to discuss how the conflict
widened to become global in its scope.
It is, however, appropriate to indicate that in the amidst of Hwaris alarumsw
it has been the desire of the Board of Management of this school still to
provide a place where young life could grow and develop normally-where
young minds could be trained and young bodies fitted to meet the exacting
responsibilities of to-day and of to-morrow. lt is not the fault of to-day's
children that this war has had to be foughtg it will be their fault if another
such holocaust should engulf mankind. For they are the guardians of the
new day-they are the creators of uthe new worldw. lt will be our undying
shame, as educators, if we fail adequately to prepare them for their task.
It is in this connection that l have felt keenly the truth in the lines quoted
at the head of this article. During the past four years we have had students
in this School from many parts of the world,-Canada, the United States,
the West Indies, Great Britain and the very heart of war-torn Europe itself.
All of them have lived together as brethren in unity-responsive, as adoles-
cence always has been, to the noblest challenges and the finest visions that
have touched the mind of man. At the same time some three hundred ex-
students of this School have been serving, as their duty bade them do, in
many quarters of the world, eighteen have already been reported killed
in action and three others are listed as missing. From many of them l have
had evidence that their visions have not been clouded-that their idealism
is not in suspense for the duration. The knightly flame still burns. It is
our solemn duty to tend that sacred fire, it is our high privilege to dedicate
ourselves anew to the task that is still unfinished.
