GRADE X Here is Grade Ten-Miss Shepley's room, To make us ladies is her doom! With many a tumble and many a spill, Mary McLeod skiis down the hill. Our other Mary, a Garry-ite, Is never known to start a fight. Betty and Shirley, the industrious two, Are clever because of the homework they do. Janet and Glo play basketball, And win the game for York, their Hall. Dory is a whiz on skates, And she is always swamped with dates. Polly and Ann, our American friends, Introduce to us the newest trends. Frances and Nibby just love to draw, Their work has never a single Haw. And there's our clever, witty Joyce, Who longs to drive her own Rolls- Royce. Maureen, our boarder from the East, In class is neither last nor least. June excels at every game And for herself has made great fame. Marg's voice is high, her legs are long, And you should hear her hum a song! Joanie M. is a clever gal And she is everybody's pal. Our camera-fiend whose name is Joan Is always talking on the 'phone. Barbara was a hockey fan Until she met another man. Pine Falls' gift to our fair class Is Rossme S., the brilliant lass. Esther is our redhead true, And she's a good musician, too. Ruth's heart is not in this fair town, It's where her love has settled down. Dorothy and Phyl, beginners on skates Are slowly learning their figure eights. When all of this is said and done, We know we've had a lot of fun, So down we put our weary pen, We have presented our Grade Ten.

PREFECTS iWith abject apologies to Gertrude Steinl and he said what are those six im- posing obelisks on the bench and we said oh those are prefects and he said whats that and we said a prefect is a prefect is a prefect and he said thank you and what do they do. well we said theres mary-she rides-that is a horse -and she plays-that is pianos and xylophonles--and she goes to horse shows all week and still gets good marks in her exams and she laughs and laughs and her eyes disappear when she laughs and she is the chief obelisk. and then theres margaret like bottled sunshine she makes beautiful pictures on ice and gallops around the basketball floor and makes charts and other heiroglyphics to keep everything running smoothly on sports day. and speaking of gallop- ing over the basketball floor we said there is roberta jean too. do poised and dignified obelisks do things like that he said well we said you might have a different idea if you saw her at the end of a latin exam or watched her in a fiery debate wtih rupert's land ap- pearances are deceiving we said. and will I also be deceived by the one with the ladylike air and the sense of humor behind her glasses he said oh no we said that is virginia she has a southern accent and knows about far-away places like morocco she hasnt been here as long as the others we said but she has been given great responsibility not- withstanding. those are long words he said why dont you use short ones alas we said we are about to describe some- one who likes long words and uses them indiscriminately. that will be the black haired one he said yes catherine we said she has slight difficulties with mathe- matics but her laugh machinery works overtime we said and when we need en- tertainment she obligingly turns into blind girls or princes or something. and the very straight obelisk with the bright cheeks she will have a good sense of humor too he said oh we said that is our other margaret she spells in a most peculiar manner but we couldnt get along without our cook book and gen- eral sewing reference we said. and he said thats all very well he said to have them so well described but I still dont understand what a prefect is and we said well we told you once and we never repeat for repetition is the most deadly of all the deadly sins but since you are so forgetful we tell you once again a prefect is a prefect is a prefect is a prefect we said.
