Rupert's Land College,
April 20th, 1921.
My Dear Girls,-
A letter seems somewhat unnecessary to those of you
whom I meet day by day, but to those who have left our walls
it will have more meaning, and in the years to come, when you
look back through these pages from your School days, it will
remind you of' thoughts and plans and hopes then happily
First, let me say how glad I am to see the Magazine, which
diedout suddenly in the first year of the war, rising from its
ashes after six years. For the Chronicle alone it is worth
keeping up, and the former numbers set a standard which I
hope will be maintained and raised by every new issue.
It is not possible to trace the course of the six years
behind us, years which have changed the map of Europe, and
the fate of nations, as well as of so many individual lives.
Those of you who have been at School during all those years
will realize later what a great gulf is set between then 'and
now, and how the time machine has whirled us round the dial
of history till we have to struggle for balance and reckoning.
Of the great momentous changes I must not write, but some
otherscome to mind as I think over the story of our own
School. For one, we have changed our name, and in some
measure our constitution, since we were affiliated to St. John's
College as a Diocesan School. The new name is still hard for
the older generation to remember, but it links us up with the
history of this Western Province, long before John West, even,
came to preach the Gospel to white and red men at the invita-
tion of the Great Company. As the name of the Diocese, too, it
brings us into closer touch with our branch of the Church, and
with our honoured President, the Archbishop, whose interest
in and support of the College have been so unwavering.
The frontispiece reminds us of another change brought
about by the years. Mr. Struthers, who succeeded Col. Rowley
as Hon. Secretary-Treasurer of the School, found himself com-
pelled, after many years of devotion to our interests, to resign
office, not long before the subsequent affiliation with St. J ohn's.
Though his health has not allowed many visits to the College

Ruperfs Land College Magazine . '
lately, we gratefully remember his care and kindness during
some anxious years and are glad he has allowed us to add his
picture to our Magazine gallery.
Since we last went to press, in 1915, innumerable changes
have taken place in the lives of the College' staff and of girls
thenin attendance or just leaving us. It is not possible to
mention all of these, from Miss Dalton herself, whom the news
of the war brought home to England from Japan, to leave
again later for Syria, down to the little First-Formers, whose
fathers wrote brief messages to them from France. You will
find some of the more peaceful changes of last year set down
in the Chronicle, but I should like to dwell rather upon the
names of those who, in the midst of change, remain unchanged
-our constant, steady friends of the Advisory Board, who
have now delegated some of their practical duties to the new
Ladies' Board, and colleagues on the scholastic and domestic
staff who have helped us to keep the School going through
some sunshine and many clouds. Among many of these the
names of Miss Crampton, now Mrs. Macgachen, Miss Harding
over in England, Miss Horsman in Vancouver, and Miss Hold-
itch, happily still with us, come at once to mind, while no one
who has ever lived within our walls can forget our daily and
constant friend downstairs, whose "candy pies" still make glad
the hearts of Juniors. QNO one but "Lizzie" has ever had a
poetic tribute in these columns "repeated by request"!J
It is only now after the hurrying years behind, that we
find ourselves able to measure and weigh some of the results
of these years. Most School people, like myself, think that we
have sacrificed much in quality to quantity-which means that
we are more concerned to accomplish a great deal than to do
less both greatly and well. Can you girls help to put this
Our great Dominion, with its scanty population, scattered
over so many thousands of square miles, offers so many oppor-
tunities of work and service that later on you may be puzzled
to know which path to follow, which road to choose. To be
successful in any, make sure that you can do something really
well, that your hand and eye and brain are trained and
accurate as well as quick. Why else do you suppose that we toil
with you so many hours over subjects which not even the
teacher can be supposed to enjoy perpetually, unless for this
one aim-that Canada may have wiser and more capable citi-
zens in the good years that are coming?
"Land of our birth, we pledge to thee
Our love and toil in the years to be"
are favourite words as you sing them at morning prayers, but
I wonder sometimes how far the love and toil are shown in the
