. ' Black and Gold Foreword It is our sincere desire that this 1958 edi¬ tion of “Black and Gold” will be a source of lasting enjoying, not only to us, the stu¬ dents, but also to all our parents and well- wishers. May it bring back many joyous memories in years to come. Much time has been spent in preparing this yearbook. However, it has been time well-spent, for we have gained valuable experience in writing, editing, revising, etc. At this time I would like to thank especially the staff advisors, the assistant editor, and the business and assistant business managers, for their help in preparing this yearbook. And so we present the “Black and Gold.” The Editor YEARBOOK COMMITTEE Standing: Grace Kliewer, Reginald Janz, Amanda Reimer, Mr. J. J. Peters, Henry Rempel, Leander Rempel (Bus. Manager), Dorothy Rieger, Reginald Toews, Donna Penner, Kenneth Betzold, Peter Jacobi. Seated: Mr. N. Toews, Helen Wedel (Editor), Emmy Hildebrand (Secretary), Lucille Friesen (Assist. Editor), Mr. G. G. Reimer. - Homework - The day is done; The homework lies unfinished, A chem experiment is overdue And I am very sleepy. But after-four sessions Have lost all appeal to me; So shaking off my sleep I begin anew. As the midnight oil Burns low, The maths and poetry is done, The magic land of sleep Beckons, — Where homework is no more. — C.

The General Course, leading to Junior and Senior Matriculation standing. 2. Entrance and High School Leaving Course. 3. Options offered include Typewrit¬ ing, Bookkeeping, and German. The Collegiate has thirty-one type¬ writers and a Library that is becom¬ ing better and better equipped year by year. S. B. RIEGER Aristotle once asserted, “All men possess by nature a craving for knowledge.” Someone else has said, “The pursuit of knowledge, like the pursuit of righteousness, is part of man’s duty to himself.” Whether you as students desire knowledge because you have a crav¬ ing for it, or because you consider it a duty to yourselves, you will no doubt agree with Solomon who says, “He that refuseth instruc¬ tion despiseth his own soul.” (Proverbs 15:32). No doubt you have discovered, though, that earnest application must go along with the craving before you can gain knowledge. There is an alarming controversy raging at present over the question whether students are attaining the standards which were for¬ merly attained. Here and there pressure is applied to water down courses, to make examinations easier, and so forth. There seem CHAIRMAN’S Message to be so many distractions that tend to side¬ track the students from the goals set for them. One can hardly pick up a periodical or newspaper that does not make reference to this problem. The eyes of the whole nation are focused on the boys and girls in our schools today and the effectiveness of our educational programme will largely be evalu¬ ated in the light of the achievements of the pupils. It is up to you to vindicate your¬ selves and prove to one and all that you possess the substance which will help you to grow to be men and women of whom we can be justly proud. To the members of the school board it is a joy and an encouragement to see students swarming to our schools to pursue their studies eagerly. It makes the task of provid¬ ing the facilities for you much lighter for us. I wish to congratulate you for your effort in preparing another year book. May it bring back to you pleasant memories of your school experiences in the years to come. Chairman of School Board S. B. Rieger PAGE EIGHT INSPECTOR’S Message This is a memorable year in which to graduate from high school. Momentous developments in science, politics, economics and education have occurred or are on the threshold of occurrence. Perhaps for the graduates of today, the developments in edu¬ cation and science are of the greatest im¬ portance. Every voung person who is this year com¬ pleting his secondary training should keep a careful watch on developments in the field of education. Unbelievable opportunities for young people to receive advanced education may be appearing very soon. Today’s grad¬ uates should keep alert to the evolution in educational thinking and be prepared to make the best of these new opportunities, if and when they arrive. Science has brought the Space Age upon us almost as spectacularly as it did the Atomic Age a few years ago. The present generation has as a result been plummeted into an age of fear and indecision. The matur¬ ing person of today must be on his guard against real dangers which always accom¬ pany rapid evolution in any one field of human endeavor. To guard against these dangers, the grad¬ uate must not let ignorance of the poten¬ tialities of the new advances panic him into taking steps which would be detrimental to his sense of values in life. He must not allow his thoughts and actions to be directed into the soul searing state of conformity. He must learn to keep and cherish his individuality. He must not desert his better judgment H. A. MOURITSEN simply to conform with those practices which have been given the stamp of approval by those who stand to profit most from the acceptance of them. The most difficult task the graduate will have to face outside the classroom will be the maintenance of his equilibrium in thought and action. He must resolve himself to resist modern pressures, and avoid being swallowed up in the avalanches of thought and action, which are, during these unsettled times, rushing from one extreme to the other. He must be suspicious of those thoughts which promise a Utopia, and equally of those which predict the inevitable ruin of civiliza¬ tion. He must keep his equilibrium of thought and action lest he lose his power to discrimi¬ nate between true and false or good and bad when choosing the course he will follow in life. To the graduates I extend congratulations on a job well done. I wish for each one a full measure of those things for which everyone strives, namely, success and happiness. H. A. Mouritsen, Inspector of Schools PAGE NINE JACOB J. PETERS, B.A. UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA Drama and Poetry _ XII Typing ___ X-XI Guidance Library “There is a tide in the affairs of man Which taken at the flood leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their lives Is bound in shallows and in miseries; On such a full sea are we now afloat, And we must take the current while it serves Or lose our ventures.” Brutus’ words are as true today as they were at the time they were written. You, our graduates and high school students have been afloat on a full sea. There has, during this year again, been an abundance of opportuni¬ ties to improve your mental and spiritual faculties. Your barque, if we may continue the metaphor a little longer, has been afloat in a sheltered bay. Parents, teachers, and PRINCIPAL’S Message friends have protected you from storms and contrary seas. Now you are about to strike out on your own. May your craft be equipped with a reliable compass, and may you have the skill to set your sails in such a manner that any winds that blow, will bring you nearer the haven that is our ultimate goal. To those then, who will not be with us next fall, to our graduates, I wish a good voyage. May you successfully manipulate those final hurdles—the June examinations. But besides a certificate proving the comple¬ tion of a certain grade, I fondly hope that you take with you the makings of men and women of character endowed with pleasing personalities. May you be sincere and reliable and may perseverance and steadfastness of purpose mark your careers. Never be lack¬ ing in ambition to strive for high ideals and do not smother initative in yourself and others. See the good in your fellow men and spice all you do with a never-failing, all- pervading sense of humour. Foster an un- shakeable faith in God, who holds our desti¬ nies in His hands. The S.C.I. will then be proud of you, and your community and your country will be glad to acknowledge you as their citizens. I trust that this yearbook will in future years be a source of pleasure to you and a welcome reminder of happy days spent in your alma mater. Jacob J. Peters PAGE TEN The President Speaks ARNOLD REIMER The end of another school year is fast approaching. As we glanc e back momentarily on the extra-curricular activities of this year we see that we have been highly successful. Our sports committee has been especially active. Our school hockey team won the Mol- loy Shield. Our school was represented in the provincial oratorical contest by Leander Rempel, who pleased us very much by win¬ ning second prize in the final contest. The success of the Curtis Magazine Campaign, of the literary, of the socials, of the Christmas Cantata, and of the spring play all have con¬ tributed to our feeling of satisfaction. What¬ ever mistakes have been made have been rectified and forgiven. We can indeed say, “All’s well that ends well.” A fine school spirit was noticeable this year. Without your splendid co-operation and willingness to work, our ventures would not have been successful. I hope I have in my term of office, done my part to uphold the high moral and scholastic standards that have been so prevalent among you in the past. It is only by reaching and raising these high standards that we will make a name for ourselves, for the S.C.I., and four our com¬ munities in later life. Let’s strive together to these ends, so that the words, “I attended the S.C.I.” will become the key to our success in the future. I would like to thank you, the students, for electing me to the presidency. I’m sure the experience will be invaluable to me later. My sincere thanks go to the council and to the committees for the work they have done and the school spirit they have shown. I would also like to thank Mr. Peters and the other teachers for guiding us in achieving our goals. Looking into the future, we see, first of all, our friends, the graduating class, leaving us. Our heartiest congratulations and best wishes to you, graduates! We see also, the termination of the school year, highlighted by the field day and the final examinations. Beyond that, each one goes his own way. Each carries his own torch. Fellow students, whether we are returning to the S.C.I. or not, let’s carry our torches high! Carry them high for service to our fellowmen and to our Creator! Arnold Reimer PAGE ELEVEN A. ENNS, B.A. UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA Physics _ XI-XII Soc. Studies_ X Science _ X Health _ IX J. J.

That the bond which affection has ever kept green Must be severed today in the heart. That we meet in this home of our childhood no more, As we lovingly met to the last, That we never again on this time-bounded shore May unite in the songs of the past. Then farewell to our school and farewell to our friends Who have lighted our pathway with love. Though today we must part, yet our prayers will ascend That our school be united above. — Anonymous Valedictory Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: Ever since the beginning of time, man has been graduating from one thing or another. I imagine it has been a custom for centuries for man to give some type of valedictory address. It is, therefore, hardly possible for me to say something that could be classified as original. Before I proceed any farther, I would like to say that I count it an honour to represent this fine class of young men and women. Words cannot express that which I feel in my heart. As I said before, what I shall say tonight, may not be original. However, I shall attempt to convey to you in some measure, what a young man or woman thinks about in con¬ nection with graduation. Were our thoughts to be classified with time as the main objec¬ tive, they would naturally fall into the past, present and the future. As we think of the past, many are the happy memories that flood our minds. Our faces may cloud temporarily as we think of that first spanking; they will brighten, how¬ ever, as we think of that first and last 100 in Maths., or the first home run. We may feel sorry for the many lost opportunities that have slipped down the stream of time. We can’t feel sorry for long though, because we cannot forget the day we discovered that one class member’s head was cracked and the rest of us were continually stumbling over the marbles that rolled out. Nor can we forget the day when in the middle of a deathlv calm up spoke a blond young miss sitting in the front row, “Oh I’m hungry for crab apples.” These and many other good classroom iokes have been our lot. As we think of the present, we realize that we have attained that which we have been looking forward to for a number of years. In view of that which we have to learn, we realize that we have but made a good begin¬ ning. We have reached the launching spot. Long have been the hours that have brought us thus far. We, however, are not the only ones who have spent long hours. We have LEANDERREMPEL Leander is a friendly fellow, well-liked by every¬ one. He adds life to the class by constantly teasing his neighbours. By winning second prize ‘in the Manitoba Oratorical Contest, “Lea” brought honours to our school. With the help of Irvin, he would make a good chemist. “Baby’s cheek or baby’s chin, where will the dimple be?” Leander claims that he has bowed legs because his mother dries his jeans over a ra ' inbarrel. He has been class rep during both terms. The position of I.S.C.F. President has been capably filled by him. He is a graduate from Bible School and goes to school for a purpose. Leander intends to go into some kind of Christian service. not by any means forgotten the long hours you, our teachers, have spent trying to get a little bit of sense into our seemingly empty heads. Nor have we forgotten the long hours spent by our parents to make this event pos¬ sible. Were these diplomas given to people for effort, they would in all likelihood go to you, our Guides and Guardians. However, tonight we say to you, a grateful “Thank you.” The future, ah yes, we cannot forget the future. It is with a quick step and clear eye that we face tomorrow. ’Tis true our knees may tremble (as they did the day we first ventured to school) as we think of who our next teacher may be. We may even tremble as we think of what our next step may be. But we realize that our foundation is sure. We are confident that you have seen to it that our lessons were well learned. It is for this reason that we step ahead, confident that we shall win in the end; above all, keep- Continued on page 61 PAGE SIXTEEN JOHNNY AMBROSICHUK John has been with us since Grade IX. He is seen entering the S.C.I. bright and early every morning at 8:20. He claims his favourite subject is Novel and Comp., but even that he always does the last minute. However, he words hard at his school work to make this year a success. The cold weather does not stop him from walking to Sarto on week-ends. John is very interested in sports—especially hockey —and Is goalie for the Sarto boys’ team. As to the future, John is undecided; his ambitions frequently change. MARGARET BALDWIN She ' is the sweet, short, and talkative type who always has that special smile for everybody. Marg. frequently has gab sessions across the aisle, with Giioert. She enjoys her week-ends on the farm at Otterburne, and is always looking forward to Fri¬ days. Her hobbies are embroidering, watching tele¬ vision, and participating in any outdoor sports. She also tikes Mathematics, T.V. star “Zoro,” green Dodges, and oranges. Her ambition is to enter Teachers’ College. JOHNNY BARKMAN Johnny is tall and “hefty,” and often plays hockey and football. This probably explains his presence in the Sports Committtee for the past two terms. Despite these activities John somehow manages to get his homework done regularly. He receives great enjoyment out of Physics and Novel and Comp, periods. He takes great pleasure in walking home every after four (or after five). This young man rates h ' igh among the better-liked members of our class, and all of us are sure that he should win a prize for having the shortest brushcut in town. It’s “real cool.” RUTH HI EBERT She is one of those lucky students who enjoy school, even though she finds Grade XII difficult. She likes doing stiff Mathematics problems but con¬ siders Chemistry a chore. Her interests hover around embroidering, sewing, and reading. She enjoys baby¬ sitting and skating. “Ruthie” served on the Literary Committee during the second term. She detests being molested by Johnny. Her plans for next year are to attend Teachers’ College. PAGE SEVENTEEN RICHARD BARKMAN This well-liked gentleman occupies one of the seats near the front of the room. He does h‘is duty in keeping the classroom cheerful and pleasant. Since Johnny sits behind him, the two have frequent ■‘Barkman” sessions. Richard is active in extra¬ curricular affairs. He served as President of the Student Council during the first term. Curling seems to be his specialty; he curled in the High School Bonspiel in Winnipeg. His dramatic abilities are very evident, as revealed by h ' is part in the spring play. The field of aviation has a special appeal to Richard. BETTI E HILDEBRAND Bettie is a blue-eyed blonde with naturally curly hair. Skating, week-ends, day-dreaming and clean¬ ing up are her hobbies. She busies herself after school hours with light housekeeping. Gilbert is a great help in snapping her out of her reveries. We have come to the conclusion that she believes in mental telepathy, for why would she always stare into space and concentrate on things other than cchool work? Serving on the Social Committee and taking part in I.S.C.F. have been some of her school activities throughout the year. Bettie ' is known for getting into mix-ups with her twin, and for being extremely fussy. Next year she plans to take up an office job. FIRMIN GIESBRECHT This quiet, reserved young man came to us all the way from Whitemouth. He stopped school ' in 1952, but decided to further his education this year, and chose Steinbach Collegiate because of its reput¬ ably high academic standard. School studies are his first concern, but in his leisure time he likes to participate in most sports, curling being his favourite. Firmin has a laugh that is often imi¬ tated but never duplicated. He is one of the few that permit the results of the June Examinations to play a part in the deciding of his future vocation. EMILY HILDEBRAND When Em is quiet, something is wrong. She is a happy-go-lucky gal, is easy to get along with, and is a tomboy at times. When bored she swings her legs. She serves on the I.S.C.F. executive, Sports and Yearbook Committees and is the Social Com¬ mittee convener. Catch Em not knowing her mem¬ ory verse for I.S.C.F.! “Chee Chee” likes talk, brush- cut boys, mathematics and whistling. Em’s avoca¬ tion is to grow a few inches. Her ambition is to be a missionary nurse. Next year she plans to enter nurses’ training and to try her hand at educating Deanna there. PAGE EIGHTEEN CORNIE GOERTZEN Cornie is easy to get along with and happy most of the time, though rarely outspoken. Learning comes quite naturally to him when he pays atten¬ tion or, that is, when he isn’t looking across the room. Till Christmas he travelled daily the ten miles from his dad’s farm to the Colleg’iate, but now he stays in town. His extra activities include watching most inter-school sports, singing in the choir, and working at the local bank. Although his ambition ' is unknown, his plans for the immediate future are to work at the bank in summer. ELVIRA KROEKER Elvira comes to us from that football-enthusiastic district of Landmark. When she is quiet she is either asleep or day-dreaming. Elvira enjoys watch¬ ing sports, reading, and listening to the rad ' io. She looks forward to week-ends with great anticipation. Her neighbours keep her day from being boring. Her intentions are to work in some office for a while and then to enter nurses’ training. IRVIN GOERTZEN Irvin, who is a congenial student, is friendly most of the time, but can become quite hostile if occasion demands ' it. His jolly disposition helps him to make friends easily and he keeps them too. He enjoys bookkeeping, poetry and prose, but at times it seems that his main purpose is to entertain the class throughout the day. Among his many interests are skating and watching hockey games. With his eye on a career in the commercial world, he intends to work in some office next year. MARGARET LOEPPKY Margaret is one of those girls who never seem sad. The sparkle in her lovely brown eyes is an indication of her jolly nature. Her masculine chuckle is a good accompaniment to Lydia’s high notes of laughter. (We have a whole symphony.) Baby¬ sitting, “Words Are Important,” and anything in the line of sports are things that appeal to her. She is a real tomboy when it comes to being on the farm. Riding horseback is her favourite pastime. Her ambition is to be a missionary nurse some day. PAGE NINETEEN BRUNO GOSSEN Bruno enjoys a long refreshing walk to school every morning. He is a reserved, conscientious stu¬ dent, taking his studies quite seriously. Come what may, everything is taken in stride. Like all con¬ noisseurs of good taste, he prefers blondes who wear their hair long. He enjoys most sports but particularly delights ‘in cheering at hockey games. Hobbies of interest to him are reading and photog¬ raphy (strictly amateur). If future plans material¬ ize, he may become an engineer. LYDIA MARTENS She is the happiest g irl in the class, and one can always look to her for a refreshing “giggle.” How¬ ever, this does not prevent her from acquiring good marks. She expresses good ideas in Novel and Comp, periods and is not afraid to argue in German classes (about “Apotheke”?). Lydia has been a great asset to the Collegian Staff, since she wrote the General News all year. She will be seen at the front of a class room after a year. Some school is getting a good teacher. RAYMOND LOEWEN Ray is a lad “full” of energy. He has difficulty releasing his pep in school work but is active in school functions. Ray, as the sports convener, does a good job. He enjoys both football and hockey very much and has an affinity for becoming phy¬ sically battered. No one gets excited any more if he hobbles in swaying on a pair of crutches, or if he sports a swollen black eye. Sometimes we wonder why the hospital seems so attractive to him. Ray finds time to do some serious thinking and thus is our I.S.C.P. class rep. AUDREY PENNER Audrey is a happy-go-lucky lady who enjoys being cheerful. She has many hobbies among which are skating, curling, and singing. She delights in putting the noisy Grade XII class into a panic when she stamps in after recess. She has a great affinity for black coats and black cars and is rarely seen with¬ out Dot. Her studies are diligently attended to and she will achieve her goal soon. She has a noble ambition. In the future Audrey sees herself as a missionary nurse but next year we will see her in Bible School o r in nurses’ training. PAGE TWENTY DONALD M ANTI E Don, who comes from the country every morning, has attended the S.C.I. for four years. He complains about assignments but usually has them done. His hobbies are building model airplanes, collecting stamps and messing up Em’s hair. Don is a friendly chap and is well-liked. We frequently catch him day-dreaming on Monday mornings. We wonder why? Maybe the solution lies in the fact that he awakens rather suddenly when anyone pronounces anything similar to “normal.” Don enjoys all sports. He is undecided about the future. HELEN POETKER This is the jovial type of girl who gets along with everyone. She enjoys reading very much, and consequently does not always find time to do her homework. Helen would rather do anything else than Mathematics. That’s why she chose to take History, although this is her favourite subject. Helen enjoys waiting for the school bus because “guess who” also waits for it. Skating and tobog¬ ganing provide an enjoyment for her. Ruth and Helen are seldom seen apart. Her ambition is to become a teacher some day. GILBERT PENNER He joined us this year to take Grade XII after spending a few years in Bible School at Caronport, Sask. Having a cheerful and friendly disposition, he makes friends easily. During the first few weeks he gave our German instructor the ' impression that he was not taking the subject, but Mr. Rempel has been making up for lost time ever since. His ener¬ getic nature enables him to take an active part in extra-curricular activities besides keeping up his studies. He is active in church work, is Vice- President of the I.S.C.F., and is a good actor. He also participated in numerous sports, including foot¬ ball, hockey, and crokinole. SALLY PYLYPIUK Sally has attended the S.C.I. since Grade IX, though her home is in Trentham. She seems to enjoy travelling to school day after day and now feels quite a home in our midst. Though very friendly, she is quiet and reserved. That Sally is very conscientious is evident by the faithfulness w ' ith which her homework is completed. Her hobbies include crocheting, and reading. She enjoys outdoor sports like baseball, volleyball and skating. Her favourite subjects are Maths and recess. After attending summer school Sally plans to try her hand at permit teaching. PAGE TWENTY-ONE MAURICE PYLYPIUK This tall, well-groomed gentleman is one of the quieter members of our class who thinks that high school students should be seen and read about but not heard. It isn’t that he doesn’t have anything to say; it’s just that the rest of us are so noisy. The fact that he comes 12 miles to school each day in his dad’s car doesn’t keep him from any extra¬ curricular activities. He is a sports enthusiast, enjoying such athletics as football and baseball. Stamp collecting and listening to the radio are his favourite hobbies. Maurice plans to enter the teach¬ ing profession. DORIS REIMER Doris is a lively, blue-eyed girl who “takes life” with a smile. Her rhetorical questions produce occa¬ sional laughter. Her baby brother, Chester, her panda Peter, and her tiger are her pride and joy in life. By way of sports this year, Doris energetically played volley-ball and curled in the bonspiel. She enjoys school, especially history. Next year Doris hopes to enter the St. Boniface School of Nursing and wear a “collar of starch.” JOSEPH PLETT He ' is a small blue-eyed boy from Blumen hof. In school he works hard at Chemistry and Mathe¬ matics, and at keeping his neighbors employed. Sports, stamp collecting and raising pet rabbits are hobbies which interest him greatly. Joseph has a twin brother Jacob. Although Joseph doesn’t enjoy light housekeeping very much he thinks it is good for him. His ambition is to become a teacher. BEVERLEY REIMER Bev is the only girl ‘in class who enjoys studying, that is, letters. Those daily letters from Briercrest have made us very suspicious. She enjoys music and reading. A part-time job keeps her occupied. Bev is a good student but frequently requires Leander’s pestering to keep her from day-dream ' ing. She takes an active part in I.S.C.F. and plans to attend Bible School to prepare for the mission field. PAGE TWENTY-TWO HENRY REMPEL Henry, one of the taller members of the class, came back to the S.C.I. after an absence of three years spent at Bible School. Always ready for a good joke, he is a well-l ' iked member of the class, and does his best to keep us in good spirits. Henry prefers the subjects in which the answers can be reasoned out, but as the English subjects are not options, he has to put up with them too. His extra¬ curricular activities include I.S.C.F., most sports, and the yearbook. After graduating he would like to attend Bible School. DEANNA RIEGER Deanna is usually heard before she is seen, and as not afraid to voice her opinions, especially in aistory classes. She is very active in extra¬ curricular activities. During the first term she was Vice-President of the Student Council; in the second term she was class rep and Secretary. In the spring play she was the haughty Caroline. Her pleasures include volley-ball, swimming, reading and listen¬ ing to records. She encounters some difficulties in Mathematics, which does not seem to be her favour¬ ite subject. After completing Grade XII, she plans to enter nurses’ training. Pet ambition: to go to Europe. CORNIE WIEBE Cornie is the quiet and conscientious fellow who occupies one of the front seats of the classroom. Despite the fact that he does chores daily on his father’s farm, he always has his homework finished or at least well attempted. Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics have a special appeal to him, though he enjoys the other subjects too. He claims he ‘is luckier than the rest of the class, because, besides taking a full course of subjects, he still receives the benefit of all the history lectures. He hopes to continue his education at the University of Mani¬ toba. DOROTHY RIEGER Dorothy is the dark-haired lass in our Grade XII room. She is the I.S.C.F. secretary and was the first term student council secretary. If you ask her a question she can’t understand she answers, “That is entirely beyond my “ken.” Dot chums with Bettie and Audrey. She claims to be a well-disciplined member of the Old Maids’ Club? In her spare time she l ' ikes tickling the ivories. Dot intends to go to Bible School next year. PAGE TWENTY-THREE MARJORIE STEEL This cheerful lass has little difficulty in being friendly. “Pals” across the aisle keep her well entertained. In her spare time, Marj. sells “pink pills for pale people.” Her slim waist-line is the envy of all the girls in the class. She enjoys taking an active part in extra-curricular activities: she is literary convener, and Mrs. Livingstone in the play. She makes a beautiful angel as well. Is she going to Hollywood? No! Hers is a much nobler ambi¬ tion. She hopes to be “a lady in white” in the near future. SHIRLEY STERK This happy-go-lucky lass is well-liked by all. She enjoys arguing with Deanna, listening to Margaret’s jokes, and eating good food. As a rule she chums with Margaret.

Her chief dislikes are Chem¬ istry, and writing poems. Her objective is to fill her hope chest, and then to make use of it. She plans to be a teacher some time in the near future. EDNA UNGER A good person to know is Edna. Although she sleeps at the front of the room, she is one of our better students. She has a “knack” for writing poetry and drawing scenery. Edna’s love of chasing Negroes with brooms and towels has earned her a part in the spring play. She enjoys skating and col¬ lecting unusual things. This cheerful lass will be seen walking the halls of the St. Boniface Hospital next year. After that she plans to enter Bible School in preparation for work as a missionary nurse. HELEN WEDEL Helen l’ikes books, people and lorgnettes. She is yearbook and Collegian editor and is active in I.S.C.F. We are told that she would like to know of a method of shrinking tall people.

His favourite sports are hockey, baseball, and hunt¬ ing. He is capable of asking questions and making sugges¬ tions that mean something. Geraldine Barkman “Gerry” possesses brown hair and blue eyes, and is one of the taller girls in the room. Little numbers in chemical formulas are very confusing to her. She enjoys all outdoor sports and exciting weekends. Future ambition: to become a nurse and travel round the world, especially to Hawaii and Cuba. Norman Friesen Although Norman can be very annoying (especially to the teachers) he is a likeable and friendly fellow. Being the only red-head around, he has to take a considerable amount of razzing from the class. Nor¬ man has frequent after-four German sessions. His favourite expression is, “Was ist los?” He likes baseball and the latest songs on the Top 50 show on CKY. His ultimate aim Is to be a radio technician. Elma Brandt Because Elma is quiet and studious, she obtains high marks. In her spare time she chums with Jo from XI—2. She lives in Ekron and comes to school every day from the farm. English and Literature are her favourite subjects and she likes sports such as volley ball. An expression used often by her is, “It’s just terrific!” Her ambi¬ tion is to go to university. Johnny Hildebrand Johnny has formed the awful habit of coming in late every other Monday. This may be due to the fact that he comes from out of town. He is a member of the famous Landmark football team. Being studious, he ob¬ tains high marks during exam time. His ambition is to get a B.Sc. degree in Engineering. Elmer Barkman Elmer is one of the more quiet students in the Grade XI—1 (quite the opposite from some of the others!) He occu¬ pies one of the front seats. Maths and German are his favourite subjects. He says that as yet he has no ambition as far as his future life is con¬ cerned. Frances Barkman Fran is a pretty, sophisticated young lady, whose combination of blue eyes and friendly smile makes her well-liked. She en¬ joys exchanging opinions with Jo across the aisle, since they both have something in com¬ mon in Grade XI—1. She likes Literature, English and Read¬ ing. Fran wants to go in for stenography. Edwin Bobert Edwin hails from the back of the room and is hardly ever heard. He makes a sincere at¬ tempt at everything he starts out to do. Curling, hockey and skating are his favourite sports.

Her good looks complement her friendly personality. Photog¬ raphy is her hobby. Peter Heier This tall, dark featured gentleman is most grateful when there are no History as¬ signments. He bits in the front of the room under the teacher’s watchful eye. If clowning would bring high marks, Peter would have 100% every time. His ambition is undecided. Bernice Buss Bernice is a friendly, fun- loving brunette. Curling and working in her dad’s store take up most of her spare time. She teaches a Sunday School class and thoroughly enjoys it.

Everywhere she goes, she car¬ ries with her a warm heart and a ready smile. She is our chief entertainer and class comedian. In spite of other activities, she attends to her studies faith¬ fully. Her spare time is spent enjoying herself. Her worthy ambition is to be a housewife. Waldie Klassen Quote: “I like to do as little as possible.” Unquote. Waldie is one of the smaller members of the class and likes to be heard, not seen. He tries hard and succeeds fairly well. His side interests ' include skating and his dad’s car. He usually finds himself at most of the games in South-Eastern Mani¬ toba. Margaret Dueck Margaret becomes quite pop¬ ular just before recess time. This may be so since she is official bell ringer. She was on the first term Sports Commit¬ tee and is on the second term Student Council. Her witty re¬ marks and good humour make he well-liked by everyone. Kenneth Letkeman Ken would be a good student if he didn’t have too many side interests. He is often heard in classes, which shows that he is capable of thinking seriously. He can’t see why he has to write the long essays which bring down his English marks. His much-psed expression is, ‘‘Doch nichT” Being a pilot is the object of his ambition but electrical or mechanical engi¬ neering may suffice. Carol Friesen Carol cannot understand why Chemistry is on the curricu¬ lum. She would prefer a course in hairdressing, since her ambi¬ tions lie in that field. She likes new cars, banana splits, and Mel. Her one great desire is to take a trip to Hawaii some day. LaVern Loewen LaVern is an avid sports fan and is a valuable asset to the school in hockey, football and baseball. He wants to study hard but somehow never gets around to do it. His father’s morbid business sometimes causes him to leave school or anything else he is doing. In class he usually helps Burt in whatever Burt Is up to. His seemingly casual remarks often frustrate the teachers. Peter Jacobi Pete is our Pfaff sales repre¬ sentative. Anything about sew¬ ing machines, he should know. He sleeps through German, and argues through Algebra. Be¬ cause of his position in the front (how did he get there?) he has an advantageous outlook and therefore keeps the class in gales of laughter. He is a whiz with a slide rule and also at drawing Mickey Mouse. Betty Dueck This short blond, blue-eyed girl is a conscientious and in¬ telligent person with decided views of her own. She occa¬ sionally “gets the giggles” dur¬ ing German period. Her inter¬ ests include reading, sports and eating. Betty considers herself very fortunate in having a seat at the back of the room. Stenog¬ raphy is her ambition. Brian Kliewer This boy is jolly and believes in keeping others in the same mood. Because of his teasy nature he has changed positions in the room several times. He is a good student and is always ready to join in class discus¬ sions. Playing hockey and argu¬ ing with people are two of his hobbies. His potentialities augur well for his future. Mona Dulder Mona is short and sweet. Her innocent face does not betray her humorous, teasing nature. She enjoys sports and was a crokinole champion in her room. Lately Mona practises piano every after four. Teaching Sun¬ day School is a preparation for teaching, her future career. We feel that she will make a good teacher. Burton Loewen “What’s your main trouble?” is a question often asked by Burton. Since his trouble is not homework he often attends after four classes. Though no outstanding athlete, Burt par¬ ticipates in all sports and also likes such inside entertainments as “knipsbrat” and x’s and o’s. Lucille Friesen This pert young lady is an above average student and a good organizer.

Ambition: to become a “lady in white.” Her hobbies ' include skating and reading. Herman Rempel Herman is the tall silent type. He enjoys all sports, especially baseball and curling.

She is talented in many ways, playing the piano very well, and getting the high¬ est marks in our class. She en¬ joys reading, skating and draw¬ ing.

He usually comes out with a hearty “Jawohl” in German pei ' iod. His favourite subject is History. He’s usually quiet ‘in class but wakes up once out of school.

She always tries to get her homework done but leaves His¬ tory for the last. She enjoys skating, hockey games (for more reasons than one) and week-ends. Beware when she is in a good mood!

Today Life is worth living; is it not? One day My soul sinks low into despair And sorrow lights my lonesome way; My heart is filled with grief and care As on I trudge from day to day; Attempt Long, long had I thought of iambic And anapestic too, It seemed as if trochaic Feet wouldn’t even do. There still remained the dactyl, With which to make a rhyme; And so I racked my brain until I thought it was a crime. Each song I sing brings heaviness, Each word I say leaves emptiness, Till I beneath life’s burdens lie; This broken bird no more can fly. This day Is life worth living? Can I say? Each day Should be a day that’s filled with joys, Where love and happiness prevail, Where grief and sorrows are our toys, And sin can not prevail; A day, when by our work and deed Some other to the light we lead. May we tread on the narrow road Where God can ease our heavy load.

Margaret Baldwin, XII PAGE FORTY-TWO A Calm Night As my friend and I step out of our cabin door and on to the path which winds its way down to the river, we enter a dark wonderland. How calm is the night! Not a word is spoken. Only the rippling of the water from the river before us, only the hoot¬ ing of the owl in the woods behind us, and only the music of the stars above us can be heard as we stand in awe. Looking towards the river, we see it lie before us, as a black ribbon slowly winding its way down to the ocean. The water mur¬ murs as it flows downstream, “gliding at its own sweet will.” In the distance we hear the water gently tumbling over the rocky falls. In the moonlight a silver gleam rises from the water and is gone with a splash. Just a fish taking his evening exercise! Above the rippling of the water we hear the mournful call of the loon, which is guarding his home. To complete the scene the frogs begin their habitual chanting as they sway to and fro on the lily pads. Turning around, we are confronted by the mysteries of the dark lonesome forest. Are the woods whispering? We hear a gentle breeze ruffle the leaves as they slumber on. The undergrowth is waving to and fro like the tide which rises and again recedes. There is nothing to disturb the rhythm of the plants, peeking through the moss covered floor of the forest. From the distant hills comes the cry of a coyote, hunting his prey. Above us perched on the limb of an aged United Nations Delegates: Arnold Reimer, Marjorie Steel Lectures were begun the day after arriving at the University, the main speaker being Dr. Dorothy Codings. Dr. Codings is directly connected with the United Nations, espe¬ cially with the work of Unesco. For some time she was in Paris, France, and later on in Cairo, Egypt. She is now an Education Liai¬ son Officer of the Department of Public In¬ formation of the U.N. Headquarters Staff. oak tree, an owl sits, peering into the depth of the forest in search of food. The sweet cad of the whippoorwill re-echoes through the forest glades, bringing back to us memories of long ago as we thoughtfully stand in the still of the night. As we turn our faces toward the heavens a balmy breeze greets us. The stars smile down upon us as they sing a peaceful lullaby. The moon goddess rides across the dark heavens, casting a magic sped over the silent earth while the stars form a pathway for her gleaming chariot. Suddenly a meteor flashes across the sky! It glows and is gone. Occa¬ sionally fluffy white clouds playfully dance across the path of the moon. In the northern skies the intermingling colours of the aurora borealis are visible. The honking of wild geese is audible as they once again prepare for their migration to the south. A wedge shaped shadow crosses the face of the moon, leaving ad at rest once again. As we turn back to our lonely log cabin, we humbly thank our Creator for the beauty and peace of such a calm night. Long after this, these memories will linger. How can we ever forget! The forest, the river, and the heavens have joined to create one harmoni¬ ous scene, which leaves us entranced. Not until one has seen a truly calm night and pondered over it, can one comprehend the true meaning of peace. Margaret Reimer, XI Seminar Report Dr. Codings spoke to us on many interesting topics, among them being Middle East Prob¬ lems, UNESCO and Ghana. Her talks on the Middle East were especially interesting be¬ cause she had been close to the problem while working in Egypt. Other speakers at the Seminar were Dr. M. R. Elliot, Mr. F. W. Hamilton, Dr. Paul Forst- ner and C. F. Greene. Continued on page 54 PAGE FORTY-THREE The singing in the Collegiate was under the capable direction of Rev. Geo. E. Dugard. Practice took place regularly on Monday and Wednesday mornings. During the year three different groups sang for the various occa¬ sions: A mammoth choir of about one hundred seventy voices sang the hymns and carols in the cantata program, “The Christmas Song of the Ages.” A Festival Choir of about thirty-five voices participated in the Altona Musical Festival. A third group was the girls’ choir which rendered several numbers at the Graduation Exercises. The pianist this year was Betty Reimer of Grade XI. FIRST TERM COUNCIL Standing: Mr. J.

It has been our privi¬ lege, as a committee, to assist in the social line. The co-operation of students and teach¬ ers alike has made the social activities of the 1957-58 season a success. Let us look back and see what has been done. Our first party, the Hallowe’en social, was rather a “spooky” event. It included the initiation of new students and teachers. One of the new students, while walking the plank, jumped so far in order to miss the tub of water, that she actually hit the water and missed the pillow intended for her landing. The highlight of the evening was a “shadow” operation. The patient was solemnly borne in on a stretcher to the accompaniment of “Largo.” Once the patient was on the operat¬ ing table, the doctors went to work. The patient must have had a bad case of stomach ulcers, for everything from puppies to rope was extracted from his stomach. This per¬ formance whetted our appetites. Lunch was served by the Committee. Dec. 19 was Christmas Social night at the S.C.I. Gifts were exchanged and everyone had his “treat” of candy bars and drinks. Suddenly an unexpected guest arrived. Santa Claus had really come. He was a great help in distributing gifts, bars and kisses. The main event of the evening was a vocal solo by Mr. Henry Toews. He accompanied him¬ self on the piano. Singing of Christmas carols brought the evening to a close. Another social event of the year was the carnival. This was enjoyed by all, for it broke the monotony of regular school routine. As a committee, it was our privilege to cheer the frozen faces of the students, and to ask them in an advertising manner, “Would you like a hot-dog?” Hot-dogs were our specialty this year. Bars, pop, peanuts and gum were also waiting for the hungry students. An evening skating party ended a successful day. PAGE FORTY-NINE COLLEGIAN STAFF Standing: Mr. N. Toews, Leander Rempel.

ISCF Report 1 John 1:7 tells us that if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with another. One of the key words of our ISCF group is “fellowship,” the other is “Christian.” These two words have been the theme of a group of young people who have gathered in the Collegiate auditorium every Wednesday after four. Our purpose for hav¬ ing these meetings is to draw together Chris¬ tians in the high school to encourage each other to maintain a strong Christian testi¬ mony. ISCF this year, as in other years, has not confined its meetings to only one meeting a week:, and so we would like to give you just a little eye-opener, as we review a few events of the year. To open the year, we had an out¬ door chile concarne stew. Then, a conference in Winnipeg was attended by several mem¬ bers of our executive. Students’ day of prayer saw something out of the ordinary happen in Steinbach. ISCF’ers spoke in the Steinbach churches, informing people what ISCF is and does, and requesting prayer for the organiza¬ tion. During the Christmas holidays, our group with the help of a few business men financed a trip for Em Hildebrand and Reg Toews to the international IVCF World Mis¬ sionary Conference at Urbana, Illinois. Feb¬ ruary 21, 22 and 23 are days that none of us will forget. Work and concentration was put into the planning of a Manitoba ISCF con¬ ference that was held here in Steinbach. The blessings received at conference high-lighted this year of ISCF activity. These events have helped us to draw closer to our Lord and Saviour. We thank the Lord for having had a suc¬ cessful year. PAGE FIFTY-ONE LITERARY COMMITTEE Standing: Gerda Giesbrecht, Peter Tarasenco, Edwin Bobert, Richard Barkman, Calvin Brandt, Grace Loewen. Seated: Grace Kliewer, Marjorie Steel (Convener, both terms), Mr. J. Wedel, Ruth Hiebert. Literary Report At the beginning of the school year it was suggested that the activities of the Literary Committee be discontinued. However, we were given another chance and have been quite successful in our attempts. Our first undertaking was the presentation of the Literary. This was held on November 7, and consisted of various music numbers and a short play entitled “The Train to Mauro.” Still, most of the Committee’s time was spent in the preparation and presentation of a Spring Play. Mr. Wedel was appointed director and he chose the play “Lena Rivers.” This play was staged here about eight years ago, but it is becoming increasingly hard to find new plays that are suitable. Also this year, a new method of picking characters was employed. Anyone interested could apply for a part. Then, the most eligible persons were given a chance to read for dif¬ ferent parts. The Literary Committee along with Mr. Wedel decided who would be the best for the characters to be played. The story of the play “Lena Rivers” centres around Lena and Grandmother Nichols. They are extremely poor and must live with Granny’s son, John Livingstone. John’s wife Matilda and her daughter Caroline treat their relations as though they were servants. The plot thickens as Caroline’s fiancee falls in love with Lena and Mrs. Livingstone fights desperrtely to marry her daughter to the wealthy young man. The spring plav has become an annual event at the S.C.I. now and we believe that the whole town looks forward to it. We hope that the Student Council will agree to let the Literary Committee continue its work next year.

PAGE FIFTY-THREE Report on Religious Periods “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.” Ecc. 12:1 In a public high school there are restric¬ tions in connection with religious teaching, but Bible instruction is not prohibited. We have daily morning exercises with Scripture reading and prayer. Then, too, we have a half hour devotional period at the close of the week. In this manner, we try to impress our students with the need for remembering their Creator in their youth, as a preparation for this life and the life to come. Local pastors and ministers have been most co-operative in serving us on Friday after¬ noons. Occasionally a visiting speaker has come to speak to us or to show us some pic¬ tures. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of these men for coming to us and giving us of their time and effort. F. Isaac United Nations Report Continued from page 43 At the beginning of the Seminar, the dele¬ gates were divided into groups which met after each lecture. These discussion groups provided an excellent chance to get ac¬ quainted and to bring to light many view¬ points. Later two representatives were chosen from each group to present a topic to the other groups. Although most of the time was taken by lectures, we still enjoyed many other pleas¬ ant activities. On the first evening we saw U.N. Films. Wednesday was quite a day of socials. At noon we lunched at the T. Eaton Company, then toured the Legislative Build¬ ing and met Premier Campbell. The evening was occupied by watching a ball game at the arena sponsored by the Canadian Legion. We had lunch at the Hudson’s Bay Company on Thursday. That same evening we were in¬ vited to a Theatre Party. On Friday evening we got together and had a farewell wiener roast. Altogether, this amounted to a very busy week, but it was well worth the time and effort. Here we not only learnt more about the United Nations and its work but also met many people and gained many friends. So Very Small So very small, On the ground below, Crawling along Does the worm go.

Football at School This year’s football season was more suc¬ cessful than any other so far. We played two games of touch rugby, one with Grunthal and one with M.B.C.I. in Winnipeg. Later in the season two games of tackle football were played, after school hours, with the Blumen- hof School. The season opened with the usual game against Grunthal. The game was played on a windy, sunny afternoon on our ho me grid¬ iron. Our boys came through with a real “take,” winning the game 38 to 1. The score indicates the limited choice of players on Grunthal’s part. The next game was played in Winnipeg with M.B.C.I. The final score in that fracas: S.C.I. 45, M.B.C.I. 0. A feminine cheering section and a lunch after the game attracted the boys’ attention, but they played well, nevertheless. The first game of football played with Blumenhof ended in a 12-6 victory for Stein- bach. The boys slithered and skidded through the game on an inch of soggy fall snow. The second game was played in ideal football weather. The first half ended in a 12-0 score for Steinbach, after a hard-fought, fast, bat¬ tering thirty minutes of play. Then Blumen¬ hof smashed through for two more majors in the second half, but we tallied with one more touchdown. The last few minutes were played in literal darkness, and scoring con¬ cluded 18-12 in our favor at the final whistle. This coming fall we hope to sponsor a still better team. We are hoping to obtain some equipment which will make better playing possible. Sports Committee Report The sports committee has been very active during this school term. In early fall a rugby league was formed consisting of six teams playing during the recesses. J. R. Friesen ' s Garage donated a trophy which was won by Ray Wiebe’s team. A number of football games were played against outside teams in which the S.C.I. remained undefeated. After freeze-up a curling schedule was drawn up with nine rinks participating. Later we had a twelve-rink, two-event bonspiel. During the cold months of the winter we conducted a crokinoole tournament in which Grade XII won top honours. We had a very successful PAGE FIFTY-SIX carnival on Feb. 7th with spirits not at all dampened by very cold weather that day. An S.C.I. juvenile hockey team defeated all con¬ tenders for the Molloy Shield. Permission was granted to the committee to build a regulation size volleyball court. This should be welcome news to any volleyball fans. Just now we are in the process of getting black and yellow S.C.I. jackets. We are able to look back with pride on the achievements of the past months. With a few months remaining, we hope to make this the most successful year any sports com¬ mittee has ever had. NAMES OF PLAYERS IN TOP PICTURE Raymond Loewen, Brian Kliewer, Larry Tara- senco, Johnny Barkman (coach), LaVern Loewen, Mr. Henry Toews (manager), Waldy Loewen, Gerald Reimer, James Steel, Raymond Wiebe (goalie), Johnny Hildebrandt, David Dyck. Hockey Activities In hockey the S.C.I. remained undefeated throughout the winter. Shortly after Christ¬ mas the S.C.I. defeated Goodwill High in Grunthal, 12-2. The return game, played at our carnival, resulted in an 11-1 score for the S.C.I. A team was entered in the Molloy Shield Juvenile Play downs. Only two of the regular players were ineligible to participate because of the age limit. The first game was played against the strong St. Pierre team. The S.C.I. won 12-2. The uneven score v as due chiefly to a determination which is sel¬ dom seen in a Steinbach team. This victory brought the Molloy Shield to Steinbach for the first time in its history. The S.C.I. was then challenged by Maison St. Joseph’s Home. With the same determination as in the previous game the boys won 11-5 in a fast, hard fought game, keeping the lovely Molloy Shield in S.C.I. possession. A chal¬ lenge by St. Pierre the following week re¬ sulted in a score of 10-0 for the S.C.I. This gives the S.C.I. an average of eleven goals per game scored by them as compared to two goals per game scored against them. Our very capable coach this year was Johnny Barkman. LaVern Loewen was top scorer of the team. He scored twelve times in these Molloy games. Since only a few of this year’s players will be ineligible next season we hope to have a strong team next year. PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN S.C.I. Molloy Shield Winners Molloy Shield Action Shots ID d Curling Report During the past curling season the stu¬ dents have been very active and many have participated in this sport. This year a team skipped by Richard Barkman had the privilege of curling in the Manitoba School Bonspiel. In the S.C.I. bonspiel twelve teams participated. The prizes for the bon¬ spiel were donated by nine of the Stein- bach business firms. The curling trophy was won by the team skipped by Peter Vogt. Winners of the first event in the spring bonspiel were Herman Rempel’s team and Jake Kroeker’s team came first in the sec¬ ond event. 4l [ 5{7 Crokinole Playing After Christmas, we had a crokinole tournament. Two players represented each room. In the final game, Em Hilde¬ brand and Ray Loewen won the tourna¬ ment for the Grade XII class by defeating the Grade X’s represented by Ray Rosner and Arthur Reimer. PAGE FIFTY-EIGHT The Best Things in Life I sincerely believe that the best things in life are free and I would agree with the say¬ ing, “Money isn’t everything.” Now I know there are a great many people who have a lot of faith in money and what it can buy, and I do not disagree with them entirely; but I said the “best things” in life are free. Take for example an old fashioned walk through the woods. You can smell the bloom¬ ing flowers and the sweet-scented pine trees in the spring. If you are looking for beauty, you need go no farther than the forest on a fine autumn day. The trees are covered with gaily colored red, yellow and gold leaves. When the gentle breeze scurries by, the leaves rise and fall and tumble over one another as they rustle over the black earth. If you are a music lover, you need only stand and listen to the thrilling songs of the birds. The robin can be heard twittering gaily as she builds her nest; the meadowlark is sing¬ ing haopily from a fence post; the killdeer’s shrill warning song is heard above. Now, if you are the type of person who enjoys those lazy Sunday afternoons in the warm sun, there is no need to buy a sun lamp. Why don’t you take a fishing trip? It will not cost you anything. All you need is a can of worms from your garden, a hook to catch the fish, a piece of strong twine from your pocket, and a sturdy branch from the near-by tree. Put these together and you have a fishing rod. Then relax against a tree and wait for the fish to bite. But did I hear you say you are getting hungry? Well, why not build a camp fire and have fresh fried fish for supper? Hm-m-m! I can taste them already, and what could be more fun and cost so little?! Not all people like these lazy days; some prefer days filled with thrills and excite¬ ment. Well, excitement and entertainment can be free for the taking. Just get your friends together, take a quick jaunt to the country and go for a hay ride. If you have never been for a hay ride, you don’t know what you have missed. The sweet smell of fresh cut hay and the gentle breeze tossing and tangling your hair makes you glad to be alive. These are only a few of the best things in life that are free. I am not saying that you can get along without money, in fact it would be well-nigh impossible. The necessities of life require money, but do we consider these necessities as the best things in life? I don’t think so. We all like pleasure, excitement and enjoyment and all these things can be gotten free if we stop to think of them. Margaret Baldwin, XII Visiting I love to visit with Billy; We have the pleasantest chats, We talk about everything under the sun, Including the new types of hats. We discuss our teachers’ shortcomings Cr praise them up to the skies, Or the price of fish in the winter, Or the girls who are the same size. Sometimes we talk of the weather, And the newly-fallen snow, Of the carnival planned for the children, Who are really too much on the go. We talk of Elvis Presley’s new song, And all the things he’s done wrong, About the latest show we have seen And how we keep our garden clean. So now our dear teachers will know, Just what “we boys” talk about, And when Billy and I get together, It’s time for them to clear out! Maurice Pylyp iuk, XII PAGE FIFTY-NINE •» «? VJ «ff » « t 9 1.

PAGE SIXTY The Beauty Parlour Have you ever stopped to th ink what a beauty parlour is? I believe that the name “Beauty Parlour” is a disillusionment. Prob¬ ably the building on the corner frequented constantly by women of all types and sizes is called a “Beauty Parlour” for the same reason that gigantic advertisements are put into the papers that advertise “FREE” in big letters, only to fool people into purchasing lavish meals to get one peppermint flavoured toothpick free. I suppose you don’t know what I’m aiming at, but let me explain. “Beauty” is something which is pleasing to look at. Now tell me, which man, after gathering up enough courage to get his wife from the so-called beauty parlour, will not hide his face behind his hands and run in horror, after getting just a glimpse of the inside of this “Beauty Parlour?” All one can see in a beauty parlor is bobby pins, black combs, pairs of scissors, and headless women. A man who one day got his wife from the shoppe for the first time, trembled in terror as he saw a huge pair of “jaws” engulf his wife’s head. When he was finally revived, his wife tried to explain to him that the “jaws” had been a hair drier. He was badly shaken up, but when he saw his wife after she had been “beautified,” he forgot all else and sauntered along grinning stupidly. Then, the meaning of “Parlour”! A parlour is a room for conversation. Although people are inclined to believe that women gossip, they cannot think this about women in a beauty parlour. In the first place, as soon as a woman puts her foot inside the door, before she can even say “Hello,” she is swept away to be gently lowered into an easy chair. The customer is so taken aback by this action that she cannot say anything during the first few minutes of her stay, for no other reason but sheer surprise. Fancy that! The next thing she knows, her ears are plugged with soapy water. I will admit that women do love to talk, but when they cannot hear what some¬ one else is saying to them, they will relax and forget about conversing for a while. Per¬ sonally, I believe that every beauty parlour should have large charts on the wall, showing the motions of sign language. Then probably the name “parlour” could still be justified. After the soap has been rinsed out of one’s ears, cotton is stuffed in, providing all the more reason for the use of sign language. And then, as if cotton is not enough, women who have come to be made beautiful are seated under large, roaring hair driers, where they sit for an hour or more, having to talk aloud to hear themselves think. Oh, that’s it; I’ve got it now! There is conversation going on in a beauty parlour. Utter despair! I set out to prove that the name “Beauty Parlour” was not justifiable, but I have persuaded myself differently. And although the shop itself is not beautiful, the women that come out usually are. I recall now, while sitting and waiting for a friend in a beauty parlour, I observed two “beauties” hidden (fortunately) by the giant driers. Each was trying to help herself think by talking aloud, and, oh my, what a conversation! Dorothy Rieger, XII Valedictory J Continued from page 16 ing in mind that He who holds the future, also holds our hand. Perhaps you who have worked so hard are wondering if you have made a worthwhile investment. Will he or she prove to be the fine young man or woman he should be? The answer to that question lies in the future. It is our sincere desire that in the years to come, as you look back upon that giggling girl or gangling boy, who has now become the backbone of this community, you will say, “That was a good investment!” WE ARE EAGER TO PROVE OURSELVES!
