CHANGE IN STAFF.
One change in the staff took place in September.
Mr. J. W. Forbes, B.A., of the Ottawa Normal was trans-
ferred to Stratford in place of Mr. J. D. Campbell, B.A.
Mr. Forbes has found himself quite at home in our midst
for it was in the vicinity of Stratford that he spent many of
his boyhood days.

A Debating Contest which proved both interesting
and profitable was begun. The winners were Miss bl.
Lawrence and Miss J. Love of Form III, in recognition of
which the members of Form III were presented with a box
The banquet in honor of the Form which produced the
best number of the Classic was won by Formll. Their
subject was, "Intelligence Tests".
Special contributors to the regular Literary program-
mes were the Minister of Education and Hon. Peter Smith
of Stratford., both of whom addressed the Literary Societyg
Miss McKee, a graduate of the S. N. S., who gave a de-
monstration of the use of the grafonola in the schoolg and
Mrs. Curtis who addressed the Society on the subject
"The School and the Home."
The members of the staff contributed generously to
the Literary programmes and on one occasion provided
the whole programme, after which the students were the
guests of Miss McNally, who served afternoon tea.
Each Form was held responsible for one special enter-
tainment during the year. To these the public were in-
vited and several very enjoyable evenings were thus spent.
Form III led with a varied programme consisting of
several musical selections and a short play entitled "The
Minister's Bride." Form IV followed with an educational
pageant "The Light." Form I the play "Hiawatha,"
Form V "The Brown Mouse" and Form II "Diamonds
Owing to the time and preparation required for these
entertainments the customary annual concert in the City
Hall was not held. But Bliss Carman's services were
secured and on the evening of Empire Day a recital was
given by him in the City Hall under the auspices of the
Normal School. The proceeds were devoted to the Sick
Benefit Fund and other worthy causes.
On April 22nd the boys' and girls' basketball teams
and a number of our students were entertained by the
London Normal School students As the return game was
played in Stratford a number of London students were
entertained here on May 6th.
May 24th being a holiday our students grasped this
opportunity of visiting the Ontario Agricultural College
and MacDonald Institute in Guelph.
The formal closing was held on the school grounds on
june 3rd, Miss jean Lennox delivering the valedictory.
OUR SCHOOL SONG.
Tune: "john Brown's Body."
On the bank of the Avon, 'mid the pine trees tall and dark,
VVith broad green lawn and terrace, stands the big school
in the park,
Loved of many graduates, who now have made their mark.
And we all love her too.
Glory, glory, shout we Stratford Nor1nal's worth.
Glory to the pedagogues that she is sending forth,
May they be the honor and the pride of the earth
And triumph as they go.
Come we from Perth County and from Huron and from
From fertile farms and busy towns and cities far away
To learn to teach the young idea, to study and to play
At Stratford Normal School.
