Rupeirtis Land College Magazine
The ninth number of the Magazine is published after a
lapse of five years, owing to war conditions. During 1915-1916
the name of the College was changed to that of Rupert's Land
Ladies' College, to avoid confusion with Havergal College,
A Ladies' Board now assists the Principal in the adminis-
tration of the College.
Since the close of the war the College has entered upon a
fresh era of prosperity, as evidenced by the full attendance in
the Day and Boarding School. '
This year has been marked by an unusual number of
anniversaries. The Centenary of the Anglican Church in
Rupert's Land was celebrated by a pageant designed by our
Principal, and two of the Staff and some of the girls took part
in it. The celebration of the Hudson's Bay Company's Pageant
on the Red River' was witnessed by some of the girls. The
unveiling of the Cenotaph was another noteworthy occasion.
The health of the School has been unusually good.
Confirmation classes were held throughout Lent by the
Rev. W. Southam in Holy Trinity Schoolhouse. The Confirma-
tion took place on Palm, Sunday.
The School has sent contributions to the fund for the
starving children of Europe and to the famine areas in China,
as well as supplying their usual annual help to the Zenana
Mission and the Hay River Mission. At the moment of going
to press, preparations are in full swing for what promises to
be a most successful entertainment, called the "Matric. Moon-
shine" and for a bazaar convened by Miss Holditch, in aid of
the Zenana Mission.
The Editors beg to thank all contributors for their help in
getting up the Magazine once again, and they hope that the
future work of editing it will be lightened by the School
Chronicler, a post which has just been created and is to be
filled for the ensuing year by Priscilla McBride.

purpose, self-indulgence, and doubtful jokes and allusions?
Remember, letter-writing is supremely a woman's art, and
probably the strongest link between the members of a scat-
tered family is the correspondence that a mother or sister
keeps up with the absent, so get your pen into training for the
years to come.
As Anglo-Saxons, "of earth's first blood, with titles mani-
fold," we have a sacred trust in our great literature, the finest
in the world. This great heritage has come to Canada for her
to use and increase. You cannot read more than a limited
number of books in your span of life. At least be sure that
you have read the best, and make an effort to find out these
and master them. A good book will remain your friend for-
life, but if you seldom climb higher than the "Adventures bf
Mushie," as depicted by two or three of your favourite best-
sellers, you will not only lose one of the purest enjoyments of
life, but your thoughts and conversation will lose a great
chance of inspiration to yourself and others. The little chitter-
chatter around the School would be so much worthwhile if you
knew and cared enough about books to discuss and argue about
them among yourselves. And your friends at home would give
you credit for taste and appreciation never before revealed.
And Canada might some day become a "nest of ,singing birds,"
such as England was nearly four hundred years ago, when the
invention of printing had given to the world more books than
had ever been seen, and the costliness of production limited
them to great and worthy themes.
And lastly, let the first ingredient in the quality, the
fineness of character, for which we must strive, be loyalty.
Loyalty to your home and family, to your School and friends,
to your city and country, to your chosen rulers and your King,
to your Church and your God. I fear that the spirit of our age
has worn thin this steadfast and beautiful quality of soul. We
criticize and analyze, we half obey or struggle against, we
limit and restrict our devbtion to those with whom we live and
work in the framework of modern life. Don't criticize your
home to outsiders, or your fellow-workers to lookers-on, or
your Church organization to non-members, nor overmuch to
yourself. If you are not true to these, how can you be faithful
to your country, or loyal to Him who claims our thoughts and
words as well as our acts for His Great Crusade? May this
School year, and every year, help us all to grow worthy of His
call and finer and truer in obeying it.
Your affectionate friend,
EVA L. J ONES.
