TAYLOR STATTEN 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." -Santayana. 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. 9
