Rupeirtis Land College Magazine EDITORIAL NOTES 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, Toronto. 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. 1 CHRONICLE, 1920-1921 May 3, 4 and 5--Red River Pageant in commemoration of the founding of the Hudson's Bay Company, 1670. May 23-Decoration Day Parade in memory of second North- West Uprising 118855. June 13-Cenotaph .unveiled and dedicated to the "Glorious Dead," by the Women's Canadian Club. Prayers of dedication composed by Very Rev. Dean Coombes and by Miss Jones were recited. 11 -

Rupert's Land College Magazine ' 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. 10
