8 Vox Fluminis
HE rollicking, rapturous, ready but
ravishing residents of Room Six,
from their rendezvous in Riverbend
School report thus to you:
Fifteen rare beauties are We,
Enrolled thus with Miss Greg-or-ee:
The Scene-Grade VIII classroom,
The Topic-you've guessed!
Each pupil's discussing
The thing she likes best.
"Horses!" says Gilchrist.
Pickard says, "Bach,"
Quiet!" says 'Megan,'
"I Want to talk."
Shows!" cries Virginia.
"Dancing!" yells Lee.
"Swimming," shouts Francis,
"And diving for me."
"C'mon, kids!" says Harris,
"Let's have some fun!"
"I can't," says Marie,
"My work isn't done."
"Drawing!" shouts Jessie.
"Canines!" for Tritt.
But as for Miss Crapper-
She just loves to knit.
"Biscuits!" says Ivey.
"Skiing!" shouts Lear.
And Helen Palk murmurs,
"My spelling!-Oh dear!"
The talking so loud
Is stilled with a "Hush!"
As our Miss McLeod
Comes in with a rush.
So back to our books
We creep with disgust
To study our History
And Maths, 'cos we must.
Miss MacKinnon loves to say,
"Bonjour mes enfants," every day.
Nancy is our little "Pudge,"
She does her Work Without a grudge.
Jean, our baby, still enjoys
Her oft-brought candies, nuts, and toys.
Doreen makes the boys all stare,
She's got a permanent in her hair.
Betty is a bright, Wee one,
She still keeps working when class is
Mildred is a rugby fan, j
Fritzie Hanson is her man.
Jean Lockhart is a lucky lass,
She gets a ride home after class
Lois is our guider true,
She Wears a dress of navy blue.
Joycie is a peppy kid,
Of all our troubles she gets rid.
Kitty's our "Professor Quiz,"
At asking questions she's a whiz

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

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-

And for herself has made great fame.

And you should hear her hum a song!

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.

Vox Fluminis 9
Kathleen's puppet, called "Ferdinand,"
She loves to move with her clever hand.
Ruthie just adores the screen
Her favorite star is Richard Greene.
Eleanor is our jitterbug true
She can truck and shag, and suzy-Q.
Helen is a tricky gal,
Doreen Gibson is her pal.
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.
