When we look back over the year that is gone w e see both success and defeat, duty done and duty left undone, and it is the saddest of all things to realize that we have not lived up to our ideals and accomplished our highest aims, but " let us live out of the past and out of the present, we have only to do with the now. " To those who go from the college, not to return, we wish them all the success that life can bring. The W ' Orld lies before each of them, a great field in which to fight the great battle of life and it matters not in vox COLLEGII what sphere one may enter, a battle has to be fought, won or lost. May every girl in our college win in this struggle. In our last number we spoke about " Friendship. " There i is another word that stands out clearly before us — " Influence. " I wonder if we have ever fully realized the depth and breadth of this word. To exist at all is to influence, it may be for right or wrong, no mat- ter how insignificant we may be we send forth our name of influence, it may be perhaps only a ripple but yet it exists, and spreads. " The smallest bark on life ' s tumul- tuous ocean. Will leave a track behind for ever more; The slightest name of influence set in motion, Extends and widens to the eternal shore. In the fall of 1906, we, as the edi- torial staff of the " Vox Collegii, " set forth upon our year ' s work with one aim in view, to do good work and make our paper a success. Where we have failed show a kind patience, where we have excelled, rejoice in our success. It is no easy matter to work up a college magazine. We have waded through our sloughs of de- spond, have climbed our hill of diffi- cultv, but we, have also stood up in the heights and received inspiration and courage. Now we bid you all a fond farewell, never again as a com- plete staff will we greet you, but we will remember you all and trust you will remember us. It is with great sorrow that we record the death of Miss Desiree Campazzi, Saratoga Springs, N. Y. P or nearly six years she was a stu- dent of our college, coming when only twelve years old. Kven then, she showed marked ability in music, and for the entire time here, made the piano her special study. This was her graduation year, and she had good hope of winning the medal. Her class honored her ny making her president, and under her guidance much pleasure was enjoyed. She w as also a member of the Vox staff for four years. vShortly after the Kaster holidays, a telegram came asking her to go home, her mother was ill. Tetters came, saying that her mother was better, but that the younger mem- bers of the family were not very well. This caused no uneasiness, un- til suddenly her mother wrote saying that the two youngest had died. For Helen, the sister left here, this was terrible news. A little over a week later, a letter came from the mother that Desiree had been laid away to await the resurrection morn. Malig- nant scarlet fever was the cause. We never knew how much Desiree seemed to belong to the college until this news came. From the principal, the teachers, the students, to all who had any connection with the college, the grief w as universal. She had been the pet from, her first entrance, when so small, and all were so proud of her great ability. For Helen, the sister, for the par- ents and brothers and sisters, we feel the deepest sympathy. -H- Doctor Hare : — " All the gr and- daughters who ordered pictures come into the library immediately after dinner. I want to get rid of them. " vox COLLEGir ' 5 O. L. C Commencement The conimenceinenl exercises mark- ing the close of the 32nd year of the Ontario Ladies ' College were distin- guished bv all the evidences of suc- cess and progress that have attended these annual events for many vears. The constant Iv increasing popularity of this institution is abundant evi- dence of the ellicitnt management of its principal and directors, and of the eminently satisfactory work of a college which stands second to none in the Dominion. Steady and health- ful progress has marked every de- partment of the College ' s extensive curriculum, and the heartv congrat- ulations of its many friends are due on the completion of another so suc- cessful year. The social centre of the town for the week has been at Traf- algar Castle. The usual entertain- ments have been given. On Fridav evening a musical and elocutionary recital was given, mainly bv the junior pupils, and was thoroughly enjoyed. There were piano solos by Misses Sanderson, Cotter and Johns- ton; vocal solos by Misses Stutt, Bulkley, Howe, Stidston and Lance- ley; readings by Misses Parrish and Alcock, and a duet by Misses French and Rae. On Saturday night the re- cital of the graduates was held. Rev. Norman McGillivray made a highly entertaining chairman. Piano solos were contributed by Misses John- ston, Harrison and Cotter; vocal solos by Misses Bryce and O ' Hara; a reading by Miss Ivey, and a delight- ful trio by Misses O ' Hara, Alcock and Lanceley. In this charming pro- gramme especial mention must be made of the solo of Miss iBryce, who sang with a perfection of clearness in tone and expression that brought her a most enthusiastic encore. The Baccalaureate sermon was preached in the Methodist Tabernacle on Sun- day evening, by Rev. Wm. Jackson D.D., of the Wesleyan Theological College, Montreal. It was a most scholarlv and inspiring effort, based on Psalm 96:6, " Strength and Beauty are in Thy Sanctuary. " The preacher of the Baccalaureate gave the following personal address to the graduates. The union and embodiment of the vStrength and beauty, of which I have spoken is the ideal of which each of you young ladies should aim throughout your whole life. Toward the realization of this high ideal is the purpose of vour presence in this college. Your attendance here has been a failure unless it has started you on a career of strength and beauty. The study of languages, literatures and art un- der influences has given you a trem- endous advantage over your less fav- ored sisters. Let me remind you that your privileges and responsibili- ties are parallel lines of equal length. The possibilities that may grow out of the opportunities you have enjoy- ed here is sufficient to overwdielm your friends with sadness, or inspire them with hope, possibilities of dis- astrous failure, or of a glorious fu- ture of holy living, crowned and 6 beautified with the approval of God. Which of these alternatives is to be realized depends entirely on how each conducts herself. 0, my young friends to quote the words of a great London preacher : " In the midst of the fevered activity, " in which life has to be lived to-day, seek for a centre of calm. Find it where Christ Tound it, in humble trust in a Father ' s love; find it in the calm which comes of duty accepted as the law of life, duty to your heavenly Father, duty to your brother men; find it in rCvSolute obedience, so that the spirit of that solemn inscription over the dead at Thermopylae may be true of you — stranger tell the Lacedaemonious that we lie here in obedience to their orders. Find it by realizing it yourself, through un- ion in Christ ' s spirit and Christ ' s life, that deep calm of this which translated noble passions into noble energy, and moved his energy for- ward within the temperate sphere of law. So will you see and reflect in character the King in His beauty. For all moral lovliness and all spiri- tual, lies in knowing what He meant when He said " Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. " The musi- cal portion of the service was admir- ably sustained. The choir was as- sisted by Misses Stidston and Bryce of the college, and Mr. Jas. Ayers, of Toronto. Mr. Ayers contributed the opening solo, " 1 will sing of thy power, " in fine voice; Miss Stidston sang very sweetly, " Glory to Thee my God to-night, " and Miss Bryce was heard in " Angels ever bright and fair, " given in her own faultless stvle. The special feature of the exercises this year had bee n the or ganization of an Alumnae Asso c iation . This has been a long delayed movement, and is born of a spontaneous desire on the part of the former students to keep in closer touch with each other. The graduates and ex-students of the O. I . C. are to be found all over this continent, and through the organiza- tion now formed they will be able to renew their social connection with the alma mater. Invitations signed by Miss Burkholder and Mrs. T. C. Whitefield were vSent to all the ex- pupils and graduates of the college for a re-union on the afternoon and evening of Monday, June i8th, and as a result, a large gathering met at that time in the drawing room of the college. Miss Burkholder, lady principal, presided, and Mrs. Whit- field acted as secretary. After Miss Burkholder had stated the object 0 ; the association — to keep former stu- dents in touch with their alma mater — the constitution was read and dis- cussed, and the following officers were elected : Hon. Pres., Miss Burk- holder; President, Miss Rowell, B.A.j Vice-President, Mrs. Geo. Ross; Corl responding Secretary, Miss Wright; ' Recording Secretary, Mrs. T. G., Whitfield; Treasurer, Mrs. W. J. H. Richardson; Auditor, Mrs. O ' SuUi- van, Toronto. Representatives to carry on the association in the dif- ferent towns were then elected as fol- lows : Toronto, Miss Hamilton; Tondon, Mrs. Barnard; Kingston, Miss Ada Chown; Peterboro, Miss Gumpricht; Hamilton, Miss Dexter; Guelph, Miss Kelly; Berlin, Miss Tillian Breith- aupt; Port Hope, Mrs. Gamble. Thus vox COLLEGTI 7 came into beiiii] the ' ' Trafalgar Daughters ' an organization fraught with the greatest importance to the future interests of the great body of students who have passed through, and still will pass through, the O. L. C. A l)anquet followed this meet- ing, which was a most delightful af- fair. Mrs. O ' Sullivan, of Toronto, who entered the college in ICS74, and who carried oil the two gradua- tion medals in her course, acted as toast mistress in presenting a num- ber of appropriate toasts, which were very ablv olTcred and replied to. Among them were the ' ' Alma : Iater, ' ' ' ' The Faculty, " The Grad- uates, " ' " College Reminiscences, " " Sister Associations, ' ' " Trafalgar Daujrhters " and " Canada. " In the evening, the ex-pupils ' concert proved to be perhaps the most enjo3 ' able of all the functions in connection with the anniversary. Mrs. E. E. Starr presided very ably and graciously, surrounded on the ])latform by the officers of the newlv-formed societv. ] Irs. Norton, daughter of the late Jas. Holden, one of the originators of the college, read an address of warm welcome to the former stu- dents, paying a high tribute to Dr. and Mrs. Hare, and expressing the hope that this was but the beginning of many happv reunions of the kind. Mrs. Fraine Cook, of Minneapolis, responded happily for the ex-pupils, alluding feelinglv to the happy asso- ciations and inspiring influences of the college in bvgone days, advising all students that the only vorthy life to aspire to was the life of usefulness and service for others. She concluded with a recitation, which delighted ev- eryone. Dr. Hare, in adding a wel- come on behalf of the staff, declared himself proud of ' he long line of stu- dents of the college, especially of the enthusiastic gathering of the dav, which supplied, what he had always felt to be a lack, a bond of union among all alumnae and for the help of the college. Judge Smith spoke on behall of the directors, himself one of the original directors. He spoke brief- ly of the history of the steady ad- vancement of the college. l Iiss Row- ell, the president of the " Trafalgar Daughters, " in a brief but very grac- ious re])ly, bore testimoin- to the spirit of comradeship that animated them, and hoped it would continue to grow to their mutual profit. The pro- gramme was uniformly excellent, and was immen.sely enjoyed by a crowded music hall. Those taking ] art were Miss H. Dixon and Mrs. McGee McClelland, Brockville; Miss A. Chown, Kingston;; Mrs. Atkinson and Miss Sutherland, Toronto; Miss N. Smith, Oshawa; Mrs. 0 ' Sullivan, Toronto, and Miss Swan, of the col- lege. The formal clo.sing on Tuesday afternoon and evening was, as usual, a brilliant function. The special train from Toronto brought, besides the usual quota, a number of the mem- bers of the Toronto Conference, now in session. The beautiful grounds of the college never appeared to greater advantage than this year, and de- lighted the visitors. The main fea- ture of the afternoon programme was a rendition of the cantata, " King Rene ' s Daughter, " by a chorus of sixty voices, under the leadership of Miss Smart, Miss Chown acting as accompanist. This w as charmingly rendered, this year ' s choral class tak- ing their place worthily in the long line of such, wdio have in successiv e years delighted the visitors at the vox COLLEGII college closing. The soloists were Misses O ' Hara, Bryce, lyanceley, Bulkley, Parrish, Stidston, Howe, Alcock, French and the Misses J. and Ida Sutherland. MivSS Bryce, in a separate vocal number, was vocifer- ously recalled for a repetition of her song. Miss Henderson was heard in a reading, " The Flag of England, " which she recited in finished style. In the evening, after prayer by Rev. Mr. Crossley and an organ solo, by Miss Swan, the diplomas were conferred and certificates presented to the num- ber of about sixty. A very interest- ing feature of the evening ' s proceed- ings not on the programme was the unveiling of a very handsome and life-like portrait in oil of Dr. Hare, executed by Miss McGilliVray, of the College Art Department, and its pre- sentation to the college by Dr. With- row, in a felicitous speech of congrat- ulation to Dr. Hare and to the col- lege on its magnificent record of over thirty years. The portrait and its original were received enthusiastical- ly by the students w ith musical hon- ors. The painting was accepted for the college by the chairman, Mr. R. C. Hamilton, President of the Board of Directors, after which Dr. Hare expressed his deep appreciation of the gift, speaking in glowing terms of the stall, which is now more united and efficient than ever before. The gradu- ates were eloquenTly addressed by Rev. N. H. McGillivray, the keynote of whose woYds was that the young women should go forth from the col- lege halls possessed of and inspired by a philanthropic faith, faith in their mission and their ability to help their fellows, the only life wor- thy of being aspired to. " Live, and. help to live, " would be a noble mot- to for them. Let them have a high ideal and aim, and whether they play upon the piano or that other as beau- tiful instrument, the cook-stove, let them put their soul in it, and give their best service to life ' s work.

The social life we have so much enjoyed we can never have again, but we hope in September to see again many old faces and give a hearty welcome to the " fresliettes. ' ' Miss Burkholder held a reception in honor of the senior class. The draw- ing-rooms and tea-room were artis- tically decorated with lilacs. A number of guests from Whitby were present. Miss Ida Day, of Hamilton, was the guest of Miss Mabel Gillespie for a few days last week. The M. C. T. Seniors entertained the senior class at afternoon tea in " 8 main. " Misses Edythe lyaurie and Delia Johnston contributed to the enjoyment of the afternoon, with music. Miss Kate Rouse, of Oshawa, spent a few days with Miss K. Lancely. Miss Kate Ormsby entertained a number of her friends at a house partv, in her summer home at Mim- ico, for the 24th of May and over Sunday. The girls from the college who enjoyed Miss Ormsby ' s hospital- ity were Misses Harley, Hersey, Parish, Ivey and Conn. Mr. Dale, of Madoc, called on his daughter. Miss Sue Dale, last week. A great many girls enjoyed the hospitality of friends in town last visiting Saturday. Miss Murial Wood, of Rosedale, Toronto, visited Miss K. lyanceleyfor a few days. Misses Lawrence, G. and . Jaynes, Hill, Munns, Cronk, Bryce and G. Martin went up to the city for a day ' s shopping. A very imique and pleasing feature of our closing this year was an i]-(i- promptu bon lire, given by the facul- ty to the students on Thursday even- ing. The bon-fire was lighted at dusk and the girls gathered around singing favorite songs until refresh- n luenls were served. We then retired to the colleg e alter giving hearty cheers for Faculty and ' ' What ' s the matter with Dr. Hare He ' s all right. " Dr. Hare gave a dinner in the Domestic Science dining-room, to a number of his friends. The gentle- men present speak very highly of the ability of our Domestic Science class. Miss May Leatherdale, of Cold- water, is the guest of her cousin, Miss Klsie Iveatherdale. Graduates Dinner The dinner given bv the juniors to Graduation class, took place on Sat- urday, June i6tli. It was one of the most brilliant and successful allairs that the graduates have enjoyed this year. The domestic science dining-room was beautifully decorated with clover, the class flower, and large sheaves of daisies. Artistic indeed were the table decorations, clover being the centrepiece, and on either side ' 06 in daisy chains. Congratulations are in order for the junors in Domestic Science, and are certainly to be congratulated for the manner in which the dinner was planned and executed-. The menu of the sumptuous repast speaks for it- self : MENU. Consomme a ' la Royale. Olives, Salted almonds, Salmon and Macaroni Timbals, Dressed cucumbers. Brown bread and butter sandwiches, StufEed Tenderloins. Butter Beans, Potato Croquettes, Lettuce Salad, Cheese Straws, Fruit Trappe, Fancy Cakes, Bon-bons, Nuts and Raisins, Cafe Noir. Fruit punch was used in toasting. During the course of the dinner a gay and constant stream of talk and laughter was kept up, the exchange of wit and humor being particularly brilliant. At the clOvSe of the dinner the jun- ior class were admitted to hear his- tory prophecy, and poem of the illus- trious class of ' 06. Then Miss Luella Fear first pro- posed a toast to the juniors on be- half of the Graduating Class. The toast was as follows : " Here ' s to the girls of ' 07, May your year be a pleavSant one. Your class a brilliant one. Your work a success. And your dinner as good as ours. " " Torie is going to tell us where we wi ll be next year, but w hereyer we are we shall expect to hear great re- ports from our promising Juniors. W e wish you all success in 3 our work and that you might be even more successful if it is possible than we haye been, and at this time next year that you will be the sweet girl graduate, enjoying your graduates ' dinner. " Miss Ruby Shields, president of the ' 07 class, responded. 12 VOX COLLEGII " We thank you for your kind wishes. We certainly hope that we may be as successful in our work as you have been in yours. We also wish to thank you for your kindness towards us during our college life. Your aspirations have been our as- pirations and your successes have delighted us. They will be a beacon light for us to follow next year. We prize our seniors and we shall miss you. The hard paths to knowledge will be smoothed for us when we re- member how you so nobly travelled to the goal of success. " Not in the sunshine, not in the rain. Not in the night of stars untold. Shall we ever all meet again. Or be as we were in the days of old; But as ships pass or more cheerily Having changed tidings upon the sea. So we are richer by those we know. And they are not poorer we trust by us. " Miss Pauline Ivy, representative of the junior class, then proposed a toast to the graduates of ' 06. " We wish to congratulate you, one and all, for the efficient work which you have done during the year. We as a class look forward with great ex- pectation to next year and our one ambition will be to follow in the footsteps of the illustrious class of ' 06. What a joy to have those long cov- eted privileges — heading church divi- sion, walking and shopping privi- leges, to wear a class pin and twirl a class ring round our finger. Such will be our privileges, and if we make as good use of them as you as a class have done, then we too will be worthy of congratulation in ' 07. Wishing you once more an even greater degree of success than has at- tended your senior year at O. L. C. " Miss Blanche O ' Hara responded for the graduates. " On behalf of the seniors it is my great pleasure to return hearty thanks to you for your very cordial greetings and this sumptuous re- past. " If you have respected us for the honors we have won and the privi- leges we as seniors have enjoyed dur- ing the past year, let us say that we wish you even greater honor and re- spect during your senior year. May you achieve your highest aims and make the very best of your final year from every point of view. " Again, we thank you for the kindness shown throughout, and hope that you will find realization greater than anticipation, as we have found it to be this year. " We sincerely wish you the great- est success and happiness and bid you, dear juniors, a fond good-bye. " The history read by Miss Ardelia Conn, brought back all the achieve- ments of the past year. The proph- ecy by Miss Torie Gierke provided much laughter and amusement, by its keen insight into the future. The class poem by Miss Grace Robinson was then read. It was a sweet little poem extend- ing hearty good wishes to each member of the class. The National Anthem was then sung and the jolly graduates ' dinner had come to an end. ■H- ■» • Miss Teskey (tying one of the girls bows) — Well (beaux) are a burden. vox COLLEGII 13 Y. W. C. A. " The desire of each heart is its praver, therefore each one prays un- ceasingly, wisely or unwisely. Every kind act passed on and every unkind one repressed, is a step toward God. " We have come to the close of an- other year, a bright and happy one, vet as we look back and review our association work, we realize how much could be improved. Another year will come for us, if our Heav- enlv Father permits and each must put into use the knowledge which experience has taught her in the past. We wish every success to the coming editor who shall take up this office. That feeling of depressing and dis- couragement that seizes us, how it hinders our development in Christian life ! One has such a happy disposi- tion, or such a -pleasant environment that despondency seldom touches her soul. With another, it is a habit of mind. Life becomes a burden, and a cloud casts its shadow over the whole personality, darkening the face and weakening the intellect — a cloud which spreads to others. The gloomy face is attributed — however unjustly — to religion, and the Kingdom of God is hindered in the heart of that desponding person, and in the hearts of those about her. Now, girls, is it necessary for any Christian to be in this state of mind? Are there any circumstances that should prove overpowering to her j eace of mind? Jesus said Himself, " Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and ' I will give you rest. Also take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly of heart and ye shall find ' rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden light. " We are sure His kind and loving words can- not be misunderstood. There is no trouble that we may not take to Him, and if we take it to Him in the right spirit He will either remove it or help you to bear it patiently and cheerfully. vTune 12 was the closing Sunday of the Y.W.C.A. The choice of a life purpose was given by our president, Miss Keagey: It was a splendid talk, her words held the attention of her entire audience and the chapel was crowded to the doors. Her life here in the College created an influence which will not be forgotten by us. Reverence for Sacred Things. W hat would human nature be if incapable of reverence? If we pause to imagine such a thing for a mo- ment, we will of necessity come to the conclusion that, without rever- ence, the w orld would be utter chaos and that there would be no such thing as morality — much less relig- ion — in existence among us. There- fore it is necessary for us to rever- ence someone or something. Let us consider the word reverence and its meaning. According to Web- u vox COLLEGTI ster it is: " To regard with profound respect and affection, often mingled with awe. " What are the things " most sacred to lis as a Christian people? First, we should reverence our- selves. Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Ghost, and we should keep them just as beautiful as we would wish a temple to be. Second, we should reverence our parents, because we owe our lives to them. Thev have given us their ten- der affection, they have watched over us from day to day, and how un- grateful we would be if we were un- kind or disrespectful to them: Third, veneration for institutions. Most of our institutions have been given to us by (jod. To the churches we owe a great deal of respect. We should not speak of the church, or of anything pertain- ing to it, in a slighting way. Dow important it is for us to show high respect for anything pertaining to the sanctuary was vshown in the in- stance when the Israelites were re- moving the ark of the covenant, for fear it would fall, one man put forth his hand to steady it and was imme- diately struck dead. The home is also a sacred institu- tion. Hillis uses these words : " Home also sustains vital relations to men ' s thought of God. Every age and generation makes its own pic- ture of the Unseen One. One test of the civilization of a people is infal- ible — its mental picture and concep- tion of the Infinite. In the far-off times of Homer, when youth and health and beauty were the ideals, the gods were eternally young, serene and happy. In that age, when men were insensible to suffering, the gods were pagan, having hearts of iron and thrones of marble. W hen the monarchial idea develop- ed, and thrones were erected, God ' stood forth in the form of a King and Ruler. In an age when men re- vered power, God became the thun- derer, and the earthquake was the stroke of his anger. But with the home and its gentleness and the soul of the parent came the thought that God was the father. These rude thoughts of God belong to an age that had no home in the true sense of that term. Once the father became all gentle and the mother all helpful in the home, the bright centre of all delights, each man exalted his thoughts of God. God became an in- finitely kind being, with more than a mother ' s love. Having seen an earth- ly father love his wandering child, the more he needed pity, and help, man opened his theology to draw a black mark across those pages that made the Heavenly Father pass by as non-elect-ous of His erring child. An earthly home, full of love for six days in the week, made it impossible for men on the seventh to think of God neglecting or passing by one- half His children through all eter- nity. Theology has done something for the home, but the home has done vastly more for theology. We should not invade the privacy of anyone else ' s home; and as to our own homes, what are our feelings for them! How often has it been that a daughter has left home and stayed away for many years. Her thoughts have been continually of her home ; and suddenly a great desire seizes her, she feels that if she could only get one glimpse of the dear old home vox COLLEGII 15 again, what joy it would bring to her, and she wanders back. It shows that the sweet and happy memories of that home were sacred to her. What are our Sabbath days to us? It seems to me that the last thing each of us should do before falling to sleep on Saturday evening, or the first thing: when she wakes on Sun- dav morning, is to thin k, " How much this day is going to mean to me, " and she should try to make it the very best she can. We should ask ourselves ' the question l)efore we ven- ture to do anything. If Christ were on earth and in mv place, would He do such and .such a thing on the Sab- bath ? I wonder if He would be pleased to see me do that? Whatever the conclusion is, it should be conscientiously followed. Therefore we should trv to reverence our Sabbath in the highest sense. ' The day should bring forth a great deal of fruit to our spiritual natures. But oh, how often this sacred day is used for gross amusement and plea- sure, and the soul ' s library day turn- ed into a kitchen day. Fourth, profanity. It seems to me that one of the most displeasing things to our Heavenly Father is swearing. Swearing is counted irre- verence to God. " Ye have heard what was said bv them of old: Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shall per- form unto the Lord all thine oaths. But I say imto you, swear not at all; neither by Heaven, for it is God ' s throne; nor by the earth for it is his foot-stool. There is also a more subtle pro- fanitv of God ' s name. When novel- ists depend upon an irreverent use of the name of the Deity for their wit and when readers read indirect and veiled allusions to religion, re- verence must suller grievously. Re- verence or irreverence to God is shown by the way we treat the poor, the Bible says, " He that di.spiseth the poor dishonoreth his Maker, " and " Pure religion and undeliled be- fore God and the Father is this to visit the widows and the fatherless, and to keep ones self unspotted from the world. " From this we come to the conclusion that we should honor God by being kind to any of His weaker creatures. Lastly, our reverence for the Bible should ])e profound. Since God has given us this beautiful book, what does it mean to our spiritual wel- fare ? It is God ' s word, and there- fore very important. It is a revelation from God and a guide for the Christian life. What would our lives be without it. It simply means that we would know practically nothing of Christ ' s life and his great work. Bv means of this book many lives are brought to Christ. Therefore, let us be careful not to reject any of its truths. " Whosoever shall break one of these least commandments and hall teach men so, the same shall be call- ed least in the Kingdom of Heaven ; but whosoever shall do and teach them the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. E. K. HINSON. 16 VOX COLLEGTI CanadiaQ Club Dined. Dr. Hare, ex-president of the Cana- dian Club, gave a dinner to the mem- bers of the Club at the College, on Friday evening. The delicious , repast was prepared, cooked and served solely by the Domestic Science class, under the able direction of their clever preceptress, Miss Diem. Some of the gentlemen present, who had been wont to regard Domestic Sci- ence as a fad, professed themselves converts to the new educational idea, an admission which was scarcely ne- cessary in view of what had occurred. One has read somewhere, perhaps in " Monte Christo, " of just such a dainty repast, served in just such an attractive way, but, nowhere, cer- tainly, except in the realms of fic- tion, was a repast ever served so deftly and demurely. This is only one of the many ways in which the influence of the College will be felt in the homes of the future, until the dream of Ruskin is realized, and all taskwork becomes a gracious and de- licate art. Mr. Dow, president of the club, occupied the seat of honor at the right of the genial host. Other gentlemen present were Messrs. Bar- clay and Howden, Principals Ho- garth and Brown, Professor Green- wood, Col. Farewell, Judge Smith, Dr. McGillivray and Dr. Waugh. Judges Mclntyre and McCrimmon had accepted invitations, but were unable to be present. The notice would be incomplete without refer- ence to the exquisite menu card with its troop of tripping wind maidens on the cover, the work of a talented art student. The cards were pre- served by the guests as bright sou- venirs of the most pleasant reunion in the history of the Canadian Club. The menu card is given below: Sar- dine Canape; Consomme a la Royale; Fried salmon trout, Sauce tartare; vox COLLEGII 17 Dressed cuciiiiibers, brown bread and eons with niushrooiiis ' stewed; To- biitter sandwiches; salted nnts, niato salad, cheese balls, pulled olives, radishes; Roast fowl, potato bread; Strawberry mousse, fancy croquettes. Bechamel sauce, creamed cakes; Nuts, raisins, stulTed dates; asparagus tii s; Grape Sherbet; Pig- Cafe Noir. Music In our last number we gave a synopsis of six lectures given by Miss Martin, the resident vocal teacher. The course of lectures were completed bv one on the oratorio, taking up Mendelssohn ' s " Elijah, " and one on ' ' Current Kvents in the Musical World of to-day. " Both of these lectures were intensely interest- ing, and certainly sustained the re- putation which Miss Martin has ac- quired as a lecturer. The oratorio " Elijah " is based on the one clause, " Behold the lyord passed by. " Historically it has its origin in the first book of King, from the xvii to the xxii chapters, also including the first chapter of the 2nd book of Kings. Before going into the oratorio " Elijah " in particular, Miss Martin sketched the growth of the oratorio in general, beginning at the morality plays and tracing its grow th up to the present day. We certainly wish that it were within our power to give a complete report of the men- tioned lectures, for it was well worthy of such an accoxmt. The final lecture on " Current Events on the Musical World, " prov- ed, although one of the shortest, yet one of the best. It is certainly the duty of everyone who professes to keep abreast with the times to have a general knowledge of what is hap- pening in the world of to-day, and the musical world is just as impor- tant as any other. We have much to thank Miss Martin for in giving us an insight into this wonderful land of music and romance. We are very pleased to learn that Miss Martin is returning to us next year and we do sincerely trust that she will find tirrie to give another course of lectures. Miss Bryce sang at both services on Sunday, June the i8th, and as usual her singing was enjoyed thoroughly. Miss Edna Stidston sang at the evening service in her usual acceptably manner. We wish to congratulate our music girls who were so successful in their examination. 18 VOX COLLEGII Art . . Now at the close pf another school year we glance back on the activi- ties with mingled feelings of joy and " sadness of pleasure and of regret. As we think of the powers developed, of the rich and beautiful lessons learned through the study of art, our emotions are those of gladness and gratitude, though there is present the feelinor that, had we been more alert and earnest, we might have made more of our opportunities than we have. Some of us depart expecting to come back again next September, and they are looking forward to another year of achieyement. Those who are not to return carry with them many- pleasant reminiscences of the studio. Ivct us see that our future will be a useful one. Our success will not de- pend upon our abil ities, but the sin- cerity and unselfishhess with which we use them. A feature of the closing exercises of the college was the large exhibit by the Art girls. Both drawing- rooms and the chapel were used for this, the former containing the work of the senior students, while in the- latter was the work of the juniors, along with the china painting. Everything was done by the girls, none of whom had been studying art more than three or four years, and some of whom had been at it only one year; but considered as the work of students and with regard to pro- gress made, it was highly commend- able. Very noticeable among the work of the seniors were a number of heads and one or two three- quarter figures, taken from the girls of the school. These, it must be un- derstood, were studies, not portraits, and as such were good. They were done, in oil, and with a few excep- tions were clearly and well done. The landscapes, were for the most part watercolors, and contained views of the college and familiar parts of the country. Among the very best was one of the three paint- ings presented by the graduates to the school — a water color depicting a low lying, washy ground, with .a vox COLLEGII small stream running through, and at the horizon great snowy white clouds. The work of the juniors were to a large extent drawings from casts. They were well done and with the nature studies were deserving of notice. A few studies of heads were also shown but were not as good. The china painting was deserving of special mention. ] Iost oT the de- signs were conventional, and were originally and decidedly artistic. The colors were for the most part dull and soft, and used with the odd de- signs, made some of the prettiest 19 pieces of hand-painted china we have seen for a long time. The girls who did them deserve the highest praise. The wood carving was also a fea- ture of the exhibit. A beautiful large box and table were showm, as well as a couple of smaller pieces. They show an infinite amount of pa- tience, as well as skill in the ' carving ' and an artistic taste in the design- ing. Our Art department is quite an important part of our school, and we are proud of our pupils. Thev have shown that they possess true art. Oratory ' ' A person ought to carry himself in the world as an orange tree would if it could walk up and down in the ga rden swinging perfume from every little censor it holds to the air. " — Beecher. Once more the college vear is drawing to a close and the merry din of packing up for home mav be heard again. Notwithstanding the fact that the girls are all so happy at the thoughts of seeing home friends once more a shade of sadness may be detected behind all the brightness. Many of the girls will go away not to return in September, and those who will have the privilege of returning will miss the old faces and forms. This wall be the case of the elocution classes as well as in everv other department of the col- lege studies, for it is impossible that we will meet again as an unbroken class. In the oratory classes of the passed year, the pupils have without excep- tion made good progress, and we feel that much is due to our teach- er ' s influence for she has lost no op- portunity of giving w ords of advice and encouragement where those words were needed or deserved ' . At the under graduates concert given on Friday evening before clos- ing, Misses Alcock and Jean Parrish, contributed acceptably to the varied and most interesting programme. The selections " When the Minister Comes to Tea, " and " Somebody Did, " given by Miss Parrish, were most pleasing. " Saunders Mc- Glashan ' s Courtship, " probably a more difficult piece, was rendered by Miss Alcock, in her usually attrac- tive style. It was most heartly en- 20 1 VOX COLLEGTI cored by the audience to which Miss Alcock responded with " Sunday ' s Lonesome for a Little Feller. " Miss Ada Chown, graduate in elo- cution ' 05, is visiting her sister at the college. Miss Chown will re- cite at the concert which will be given Monday evening, June i8th, by the former students of the college. We are sure that all are looking for- ward to thie occasion with anticipa- tion. The members of the oratory class gave a recital in the chapel, Thurs- day evening, June 7th. The pro- gramme was composed of selections by the Misses Alcock, Code, Fra- leigh, Harley, Gillespie, Ivey, Ross, Leggett and Wheat on. The hearty applause which followed each recita- tion showed the- keen appreciation of the several numbers. Miss Henderson ' 05, will give read- ings at the seniors ' concert, to be held Saturday evening, June i6th. Miss Pauline Ivey will also assist. Misses Mabel Alcock and Jean Par- rish contributed to the programme given at Seagrave Methodist church. vox COLLEGII 21 Locals DKFINITIOXS. After dark — Chasing a negro.

The college also directly developes the character along reli- gious and ethical lines, by broaden- ing our views of God, life, man and duty. The " Student " gives us many in- teresting stories and splendid illus- trations and during, these warm days an hour under a tree with such a good magazine does one much good in examination times. " The Postern " contains a splendid article on self government in the college. If this can be carried out successfully it should certainly raise the honor standard of the school.

It was midnight and dark as Erebus. " What, oh what will be in the great hereafter " was the thought that had been puzzling the Senior Class. It was a splendid night to visit Hecate and inquire into her mysteries; so clad in rain proof garments I made my way to the old hag ' s hut. On the edge of a deep, dark, dismal wood it stood. " Was she not at home ? " No light shone from the tiny pane; however, my heart beating wildly, I knocked. " Enter, " cried a hoarse voice, and I timidly lifted the latch and stepped in. As I did so, one brilliant flash of lightning lit up the interior of the hovel. In that brief space I beheld the witch, seated in the corner, her knees huddled up to her chin, while beside her sat two skinny black cats. In front of her hung a huge iron cauldron that was bubbling away. " What want you to-night ? " she said as kindly as her cracked voice would allow. " Such a night to be out ! " " Show us, I entreat you, by your mystic powers, the great future of the immortal class of ' 06. " Giving a shrill laugh she bent for- ward, and seeing who it was, she sank back again and for a few min- utes silence reigned. In the interim the thunder seemed to crash louder than before until I thought the very heavens would be rent asunder. At last she sat up. " Double, double, toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble. " As she spoke these words the three weird sisters entered and tossed a motley collection into the cauldron, which immediately boiled and seeth- ed and foamed up. Then a dense smoke arose and when it disappeared I cast a timid glance in. A pretty farm house stood out to view with neatly kept garden in front. But who was that standing at the side feeding some chickens ? None other than our golden-haired blue eyed Orrie. " Orrie a farmer ' s wife ! " I in- voluntarily gasped out laughingly. The Hecate replied : " The tiller of the soil Is a man of O. A. C, While the mistress of the home She hails from O. L. C. " and only then did I remember the 0. A. C. reviews that Orrie received monthly from Guelph. Did I hear a voice coming from the cauldron ? " Now Skidoo, this is no place for you in a muslin dress ! " I knew both the voice and the expres- sion. It belonged to Clara Mac. 1 But to whom was she saying it ? A man who seemed to be an agent for something and as I listened the voice of the witch broke in explanation : " A new kind of mattress he tries to sell For Clara ' s hospital family. vox COLLEGII 25 But the only make that she will use Are the Featherweight Mattress Company. ' ' " Doodles " — the girl who disliked children — the matron of a children ' s hospital. Will wonders ever cease ? A large assembly hall was next brought out. Fifty or more students were here assembled when the door opened and in walked Mary. " Class attention ; What is the formula for Hydrogen Sulphide ? " I was on the point of total collapse on this im- looked for revelation, but I waited for the words of the witch ; " Professor of Chemistry Mary is And will be just as long as she lives. ' ' Chemistrv ! Mary ! My best wishes go out to her and may her pupils have as good luck as should attend the efforts of such a " merrv sun- shine. A vaudeville theatre was next pre- sented. An applauding audience were encoring a singer. I watched the stage and in a lew minutes Blanche appeared wreathed in smiles, bowed right and left, and then to my amazement instead of a song from " Parsifal " she sings with deep feeling in her tones that very touching little song, " Alexander, don ' t you lub your honev no more ? " A cackle from Hecate drew me from the scene: " No explanation here is needed, For vou can surely tell In grand opera she could not sing, That song she loved so well. " But a tall majestic residence rose up with high turrets and lofty pin- nacles. On the step of this house stood a beautifully gowned lady wearing on her breast a shining gold medal. I knew her. It was lyuella. " But where is she ? " " And what is she do- ing ? " I turn and ask these ques- tions. And the reply comes back : " In one of the grand old English Castles, Dw ells Luella Fear ; She had a grant from the govern- ment, And that ' s how she ' s living so dear ! ' ' This then was her beautiful future home ; one of the best castles that ever claimed England as its native land. Happy lyuella ! Happy Castles ! W h i r r — w h i r r — w h i z-z- z The scene changed again, and I saw before me a great hall filled with people, many of them young men and women from the colleges of the land. It was an annual convention of the Y. W. C. A. All were listening in- tently to the speaker. I recognized Effie, whose training in the 0. Iv. C. fitted her for the position. Her wise practical words fell familiarly upon my ear, and I wished much to get to her, but the w hole image faded away, amid the sound of hearty applause, and I saw only the witches ' cauldron. The next picture was a tall build- ing that I soon recognized as the Capitol at Washington. Inside in an office sat our Helen — surrounded by luxury. Not far away at a desk sat a man dictating to her and she deftly took it down. As I went out I saw on the door, " President ' s office. " Then I wondered but Hecate told me : The President vsearched through all the land, 26 VOX COLLEGII Throug-h all the great and glorious band (of clever girls), But none could he hope to find That in cleverness could exceed the mind (of Helen). So our " only " in Commercial had been appointed as private secretary to the president of her own beloved native land. But it was none too good for her and I felt she was in her proper place. " The time has come, " ' the walrus said, ' " to talk of many things, " came in the well-known tones of Clara. I saw before me a room All of girls centered aronn d one graceful looking young lady with a copy of " Alice ;n Won- derland, " in her hand. As she ;spoke these words two or three girls :ro.se to go, but the voice called them ack. ' Don ' t you go, girls. Don ' t you go. " The girls inquire if it wasn ' t time to go and Clara replies as of old : " No, not yet. " I burst out laughing at this but the witch stopped me : " Clara in a secluded nook, Reading to girls in her favorite book; Alice in Wonderland as you know, In her voice so sweet and low. " Clara, with her " No, not yet, " and quotations from Lewis Carroll ' s never failing book, will never be at a loss for a reply. " How much am I bid ? What am I offered ? " Fifty cents ! going, go- ing, gone. It was an auction sale, but the voice sounded familiar. Then I caught sight of the face, and I knew I had judged that voice aright. It was Ollie. How her voice rang .out till the people said they all had to talk louder to be heard above the auctioneer. An advanced age had truly come when woman would take an equal place with man even at the auctioneer ' s stand. Hecate said to me : ' - " Ollie decided as well as her art, Her voice might help her out; So when she has painted a picture ■ gay, ' Painting Sale, ' you can hear her shout. ' ' A brilliant idea came to Ollie, and one that could be thought of only by her who was never known to be stuck in anything from the color of shoes to match a " Conversat " dress, to coloring a hat red, was to get far away from the south-east corner of the dining-room. May her shadow never grow less. Up in the top flight of a grand building I saw an artist ' s studio. At the window stood a young lady gaz- ing down at the busy, seething city below. " How soon all this bustle and turmoil, that lies before me will be swallowed up in the great be- yond, " she sighed, and turned and then I saw her face, and I knew it was Grace. Those deep thoughts be- longed to no one else but to her. Even as I watched she turned and hurried to re-arrange things in the room. " Dear me, " she mused, " I will be late again for that engage- ment, and I really can ' t find my brushes any place, which is so dis- couraging, and so disheartening and all that sort of thing, don ' t you know ? " Hecate turned to me and said in an apologetic tone of voice : " The greatest artists of the day, Are always late in just this way. " Crash ! Bang ! Bang ! Bang ! It was a carpenter ' s shop and standing before a table was Effie w ith mallet and pencil in her hand. In front of her lay long strips of wood. " It 27 must be a conventional design and I don ' t know whether busy bees or lazy drones would be best ! " she said as she puckered her brow into a frown. ' ' What is she talking about? " I inquired. ' ' Effie has just received the order, To carve a new ceiling for Ryerson Hall, But what design to put thereon, Is the fact that puzzles her most of all. " Why, yes, of course, Efhe would turn out to be a great wood carver and designer. But whv did she want a conventional design ? I thought — and the witch knowing my thoughts, replied : " because there is going to be a convention there. " The interior of a photo gallery showed Iva standing in the centre of it talking. " Yes, you see I want a photograph with a big mount, in fact an immense one, so I can write all my family history and jokes, and — oh everything on the back of it- Yes, I always like to have a photograph with lots of writing on the back of it, so you can look at the back more than the front. Don ' t you ? and when I do " But the piiotographer puts his hands to his ears. " Such a chatterbox, " was all he said, but it was enough. With one toss of her head Iva was gone. The witch told me : " Unless Iva has a chance to talk, Up she w411 get and out she will walk. ' ' Then the picture vanished and the cauldron bubbled on as before. Bid- ding farewell to Hecate, I went out. The rain had ceased, and in the far east the sun was rising in all its splendor of pink and gold, and I then wished that the class of naughty six would ever be attended by the good ' luck that a four leaved clover is sup- posed to bring. PROPHETESS. Athletics The 24th of May was taken up with a tennis tournament, " Teachers vs. Students, " resulting in a victory for the students. At the end of the matches the Dr. w ith a liberal hand distributed oranges and bananas. Supper was served on the lawn and in the evening we had fireworks. Rain came on just as the last rocket went up but it did not dampen the order of the yell, " What ' s the matter with Dr. Hare ? He ' s all right. " " Who ' s all right ? " " Dr. Hare . " With other good yells we said " good-night, " and the 24th of May, 1906, at O. ly. C. will remain as one of the pleasantest memories of the year. Miss Campazzi and Miss Hinson played oil for the Senior Tennis Championship on June i6th, result- ing in a victory for Miss Campazzi. On Thursday night June 14th, we celebrated the final of examinations by a huge bonfire that was much en- joyed. V. H. C. 28 VOX COLL EG IT Class History So much has happened since last September that now at the close of the year of 1906, each girl looking over her happy time spent in the col- lege feels much regret at the separa- tion from her fellow students. Many persons have commented upon this year, the year of 1906. We have had our share, of sorrow, but joy certain- ly has not been lacking. MISS DESIREE CAMPAZZI When we were organized by the Ivady Principal as the senior class, how many ideas and ideals we had. How much we thought we would do •before the year ended. But scarcely ' One has realized her expectations. What an important place we felt we liad in the annals of the school, when we gave our weighty opinion as to the kind of pin or class ring. This was a small matter compared to the choice of the President. The honor was accorded Miss Campazzi. Her death was the greatest shock to all of us. This year has been in many respects the saddest, not only to the seniors, but also to the other stu- dents. Who forgets the senior concert ? Was it Irish ? Surely there is no one but remembers the classical part I, and undoubtedly no one could forget part 2. The 17th of March certainly was well celebrated. The chorus " The Minstrel Boy to the War is gone, " was the opening num- ber, while " Molly ' o, My Irish Molly ' o, " very realistically sung by quaint little Irish lads and lasses, was the closing number. How much we enjoyed ourselves that afternoon, when Miss Burk- holder entertained at an afternoon tea for the -seniors. The guests came from town, and all were de- lighted with the sweet music render- ed by our music graduates. We are not always the dignified seniors, setting a wise exa.iii[ile to the juniors following in our foot- steps. Once, ah, one fatal day, or night I should say, we yielded to temptation and had to be punished as the other criminals. Still even this rememberance is full of sweet- ness. We have enjoyed our walking and shopping privileges and as we look over the past, we can even im- agine we like division. vox COLLEGII 29 How deluding thoughts are. Still, the year has not been all fun. We have had our work to do and we have done it. The graduates in M. K. L. Art, Commercial, Vocal, Piano, and D. S., prove this. But even in our rush of work and play, we have had time to think of higher things. For there is a more serious side to life than even our work and play.
