The best advice that I can give you is the one that Dr. Wilson, of Victoria College, gave the class of which I was a member, viz.: Keep humble and be useful. The complaint has sometimes been made against col- lege students that when they have re- turned to their homes they have felt themselves so much superior to their less favored friends, that they have been practically isolated from the needs of the community, and have been less fitted than previously for ;any good work. Such a complaint has never come to me respecting our stu- dents, and I feel quite certain that it will not be made against any of you. The earnest and morally healthful spirit of the institution that has shown itself in the faithful and suc- cessful work of the class rooms, the May Court Club, Y.W.C.A. meetings, Mission Study classes, Bible classes, etc., has not only promoted thorough scholarship, but has kept you in sym- pathetic touch with the vital issues of Christian life and service, and has, 1 trust, developed a type of character that will make you a power for good in the home and in the community to which you have returned. The time has passed when it was necessary to argue on behalf of the so- lidity and thoroughness of an educa- tion to be obtained in our College, and yet the guarantee of efficient instruc- tion does not adequately express the real worth and advantage of our col- lege training. There is a larger view of education than simply the acquisi- tion of knowledge, or the passing of examinations, and I take comfort from Dr. and Mrs. Hare at Home. 4 VOX COLLEGII the thought that many of you have been inspired with higher ideals, and have become stronger and better fitted to meet the difficulties and tempta- tions of life than you were at the be- ginning of the year. Our age demands that a woman should be educated. Avenues of usefulness are opening to her on every hand by means of which she can not only make an honest and honorable livelihood, but help to initi- ate or direct movements tending to the well-being of the community in which she may reside and I look to you to take your full share of responsibility in this direction. One of the most hopeful signs of the times is the increasing interest taken in the work of the college by the var- ious chapters of ' ' Trafalgar Daugh- ters ' I do not regard this as a mere momentary wave of enthusiasm, but rather as an intelligent and sympa- thetic interest in everything that per- tains to the College that must bear abundant fruit. It is to be hoped that in the near future ' ' Trafalgar Daugh- ters " will have the right, by legal en- actment, to appoint from their num- bers one or more members of our Board of Directors. Mrs. Hare and members of the Fac- ulty join with me in wishing you plea- sant holidays, and hoping to have the privilege of welcoming many of you back to the College in September. Message to the Graduates By MISS TAYLOR The editor of the Vox has asked me to write a message to the graduates, and I find it a difiicult thing to do, for there is so much that one might say, that to choose the most essential points is a task, indeed, a kind of boil- ing down the year ' s " oysters. ' ' You girls leaving our Colleges have a tremendous responsibility laid upon you, for you represent the cultured, thinking women of the nation who are, at the present state of affairs, of " the highest importance to its welfare. All over the world to-day, woman is demanding a more direct influence in the world ' s affairs. She has in the last century proved that she is cap- able of receiving as thorough, an edu- cation as man, that in many ot the professions she can work side by side with man, — indeed, to-day woman has entered almost every sphere of labor. This has produced many serious econ- omic difficulties — woman ' s labor is al- ways more or less sweated labor, and men have been thrown out of po«ts that women couW fill equally well be- cause women would do the work for less money. Again, in many cases, women have lost their taste for do- mestic work, and homes and children have suffered in consequence. To-day you cannot put the clock back, wheth- er you approve of the trend of affairs or not. Girls and women are out in the world in a way which would shock and horrify their grand- mothers. Then, what has to be the attitude of our College and Uni- versity women ? They are bound more or less to become leaders in their var- ious spheres, for knowledge is always Power. 1 would plead with you to en- large your own knowledge in every possible way ; do not be satisfied with mere hearsay or onesided views of any subjects, for narrowness and prejudice are the greatest enemies of progress. Do not feel when you leave College that your education is finished— it is only just beginning ; your minds have been trained, but your experience has been narrow ; it is your duty now to bring the trained mind to bear on vox COLLEGII 5 your widening- outlook. Definitely set aside some time every day for solid reading ; do not be content with only stories and novels, though the good among these serve a useful purpose, but read widely — history, travel, bio- graphy, and do not neglect ,vour news- paper. To a busy person, who has lit- tle time for reading, the daily paper is an absolute necessity. Know what Parliament is doing, what the world in general is thinking about, what are the great problems of the age?. Above all remember that happiness and pleasure are not the same thing ; that having a good time is not neces- sarily living well ; but that we are most perfectly happy when we are doing ,to the best of our power the work in the world which God has giv- en us to do. A Trip to NA ashington By DR, HARE There were many things that made my recent trip to Washington with Mrs. Hare exceedingly enjoyable. In the first place, the Board of Di- rectors, in the most cordial manner, gave me leave of absence for as many weeks as I desired to be away, and a special cheque for one hundred dollars to meet my expenses. The afternoon that Mrs. Hare and I left the College there were very few students in the building, but these, with Miss Taylor, planned a surprise for us. John was let into the secret, and was instructed to drive us to the side door. Getting there sooner than was expected, we passed on down the road, and were near the railway track when we heard someone shouting be- hind us, and looking round we saw one running. Soon the full force arrived with waving handkerchiefs to wish us a pleasant trip and a merry Xmas. Looking toward the building we saw Miss Taylor waving her goodbye and her best wishes. We had no time to make any formal reply to this hearty g-reeting, but our hearts were touched and we started on our journey feeling that the lines had fallen to us in plea- sant places when it was our good for- tune in early life to find our way to the O.L.C. When we reached Toronto another party of friends met us at the Union Station to add their words of good cheer to what had been already re- ceived. On the way to Buffalo we had the company of one of our students, and when we reached that city and bade her good bye, as she was going by another line of railway, we remark- ed that we had at last reached a place where we were not known, and were quietly chatting together in the sta- tion when, looking up, there stood be- for,e us one of our old teachers. Miss Moore, now Mrs. Elbert Hubbard, of East Aurora, of Roycroft fame. She brought her husband over and intro- duced him to us, and we had a delight- ful conversation together. Mr. Hub- bard is a man of a very striking ap- pearance, magnificent large head, fine- ly chiselled features and sparkling black eyes. He claims to be a grad- uate of the University of Hard Knocks. He began life as a cowboy, then a soap pedlar, then the manager of a soap factory, then went to Europe and on his return bought out a small printing establishment and began operations in an old barn. I don t need to tell you that he now does the most artistic work in book printing and binding in America, and is at the same time one of our most racy and original writers. On the way to Washington I had the good fortune of meeting a New York member of the House of Representa- vox COLLEGII tives. He kindly invited me to call at his office, and secure cards of admis- sion to both Houses of Congress, which I took pleasure in doing. My . first Sunday in Washington was spent most- profitably. It is due to President Wilson and his cabinet to say that they are exerting a most wholesome influence upon the Sunday life of the city. President Wilson has given instruc- tions that not a single office of any of the Executive Departments is to be open on Sunday, and that no messages of any kind are to be sent to the White House on Sunday unless they are mes- sages of the first importance. He and his family go regularly to one of the Presbyterian churches, while Vice-Pre- sident Marshall and Secretary Bryan teach classes in the Sunday School. Of late years Washington Society has been drifting into bridge parties and dancing parties on the Sabbath, and the day was becoming generally dese- crated by this class of people, but through the influence of the President a marked improvement has taken place. The first church to attend in the morning as you might expect was the Methodist Church, and I was not disappointed. Unfortunately after the first hymn had been sung something went wrong with the motor power of the organ, and it remained silent for the rest of the service. The preacher said that the organ was something- like a spoiled child, it was sure to ' ' act up " when there was any special company present. In the evening our party went to the Presbyterian church, and as special music was announced, we went early so as to secure seats. We were scarcely settled in the pew when an old College student, now Mrs. Sloan, stepped up to us and asked us to remain for a few minutes after the service, as she wished to introduce us to a friend of hers, a Mr. Young, who was a member of the House , of Repre sent a tives. We did so, and as a re- sult I was invited to take lunch with him next day in the private dining- room in the Capitol for the use ot members. After lunch he very kindly took me through the President ' s room and other private rooms not usually open to visitors. Leaving Mr. Young I took a car for the house of the Bri- tish Ambassador, Sir Cecil Spring Rice, and presented a note of intro- duction from Premier Borden. In a few days Lady Spring Rice invited Mrs. Hare and myself to have lunch with them. I shall not attempt to de- scribe the repast, nor the admirable way in which everything was served. The British Embassy has the reputa- tion of showing the most perfect eti- quette and style of any in the city. I had the privilege of attending ses- sions of both the House of Representa- tives and of the Senate. In the for- mer, Champ Clark, the speaker of the House, was in the chair. The subject discussed was the District Appropria- tion Bill. Though the citizens of Washington have no votes, and no con- trol over expenditure, an effort was being made to place upon them the whole burden of taxation for local improvements, education, etc., — in oth- er words, Uncle Sam was going to re pudiate the bargain he had entered in- to with the city ' s authorities to rnect half of the city ' s expenditures. When visiting the Senate Chamber the subject that I heard discussed was still more interesting, viz., the noted Currency Bill. Senator Bristow, from Kansas, was speaking when I entered. Instead of discussing the bill in a dig- nified and judicial manner, he violent- ly gesticulated, bent almost double over his desk and literally shouted at the top of his voice. This Currency Bill had been passed by the House of Representatives largely Democratic and sent to the Senate in which there was a small Democratic Majority. The Senate had made various amendments to the Bill, and sent it back to the House. The House would not accept these amendments, and appointed a Conference Committee, composed of six Democrats and three Republicans, VuX OOLLEiill 7 to consider these amendments and see what changes could be made that would meet the wishes of both parties. The Democratic members of this con- ference, being in the majority, decided to exclude the Republican members till they had time to agree amongst them- selves as to what were the essential features of the bill that they would not give up. When they had come to an agreement respecting the amended bill, they sent for the Republican con- ferees and asked them to make sugges- tions. The latter refused to do or say anything. I chanced to enter the Sen- ate chamber when the Republican mem- bers were denouncing in the most bit- ter language the insult that had been given to them and to the whole Re- publican party by the action of the Democrats. The feeling was quite tense on both sides, when a Democrat- ic senator arpse and told a story of an old colored woman who was nearly run over by an automobile, Seizing a brick, she determined to throw it at the next automobile that she met. Soon one came along slowly. The driver graciously stopped the car and took her in. As she began to feel the exhilaration of the moving car some colored people were noticed on the road in front of the car, when she call- ed out, ' ' No use in trying to stop this car. Those colored people have no right to be on the road anyway. ' ' The Democrats cheered, and the hum- orous senator went on to discuss the bill in a good-natured spirit. Another very enjoyable experience was the privilege of seeing the Com- munity Christmas Tree, a large Nor- way spruce, on the plaza oi " the Capi- tol, illuminated with red, white and blue electric bulbs, and which was wit- nessed by over twenty thousand peo- ple. Near the dome of the building blazed forth from a brilliantly lighted placard, ' ' Peace on Earth ' On the steps in front of the building were massed one thousand of Washington ' s best singers, whilst beside them stood the noted Marine Band to play the ac- companiments. The first song was Beethoven ' s beautiful Creation Hymn, sung at first softly and then gradually swelling until it reached tremendous power and effect. Then came the first tableau of Joseph and Mary on the way to Bethlehem ; then the manger, and as it became a blaze of light, a bright star appeared over the Christ- mas tree. Then between the columns of the Capitol appeared five angels with trumpets, and the great choir be- gan to sing, Hark ! the herald an- gels sing. " The scene and the music were so inspiring that many uncover- ed their heads and some actually knelt in prayer. Then followed the tableaux of the visits of the shepherds and the wise men. Then all lights were turned down, the angels onhr being visible, though the manger still continued to be illuminated, and the choir sang softly, ' ' Holy Night, Silent Night. " The closing number was ' ' The Star Spangled Banner. " vox COLLEGII 9 The Graduates " A tender heart, a loyal mind. " flDuncl ifreeman Burlington, Ont., has given us this graduate, one of whom we are proud. She has won our admiration and re- spect by the pluck she has shown in sticking by her guns like a true Casa- bianca, and getting her year in the M. E.L. course in spite of many handi- caps. Her cheeriness and good nature win for her our affection. We know whether at home or at the University she will be a success. Pet Expression.— ' ' Why, you don ' t say. ' ' Failing.— Mr. Greenwood. " So soft, so calm, yet eloquent. " Clanbel IbicJ s is the daughter of the Methodist min- ister in Almonte. She came to 0. L. C. in 1912, took the elocution course and distinguished herself by winning the Governor General ' s medal for oratory. We expect to hear great things of Claribel, and if Prince Charming doesn ' t claim her before long, she may be back as Elocu tion teacher in her Alma Mater. Fascination. — Her smile. Aversion. — Matrimony. " Queen rose of the rose bud garden of girls. " ®Uve IboUi ai? is a native of our College town— Whit- by. Beautiful and attractive as it is, it was not sufficiently attractive to keep Miss Holliday from flitting out into the big world. She aspired to be a nurse, and in a Hamilton Hospital she received her training, and then af- ter a year or two of nursing, she re- turned to her home town in search of new worlds to conquer. The elocution course at the College attracted her, and she has in two years excelled in it. On May Day Miss Holliday won the great honor of being chosen May Queen— the ideal girl of O.L.C. With her ambitions and stick-to-it-iveness, we soon expect to hear of Miss Holli- day becoming a Superintendent of a hospital. Favorite Hymn.- ' ' Work, Brother, Work. " Weakness— Energy. " All that ' s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes. " Etbel Ibare hails from the far west. Rose town, Sask. Her genial and unaffected man- Qer has won for her many and fast friends at college. Her work in the M.E.L. course has been of the highest standard, as the gold medal she re- ceived in that department will testi- fy. We would like to keep Ethel and her smile in Ontario, but alas she yields to the lure of the West. Weakness.— Late lights. Admirer.— Uncle J. J. " There is none like her— none. " Constance IRiIboin was born in Chen Su, China, but is a Canadian staunch and true neverthe- less. Her early years were spent in that far-away land, but since her tenth year she has been receiving her educa- tion in Canada, first in a Toronto school, and since 1910 at Whitby Col- lege, where she has proved herself to be a brilliant student and an all round good sport ; also an excellent mother to her little sister, Cora, in Mrs. Kii- born ' s absence in China. Connie goes in for everything and comes out on top every time. Her worth has been re- 10 vox OOLLEGII cognized and appreciated by the girls, as was proved on May Day when they voted her name for the Nelson Shield. Pet Phrase.— Oh, mamma s com- ing.- Greatest care.— Cora. " When she speaks a jewel falls. " Bessie Xee It was in the Emerald Isle that Bessie first exercised her lungs, but she has distinguished herself in exer- cises of other kinds in this land — ten- nis and basketball. She is also a stu- dent after Mr. Greenwood ' s own heart, and well deserved the M.E.L. silver medal. Pet Phrase.— ' Oh, that ' s a cinch V Ambition.— To be a Biology Profes- soress. " A icrystal brow, the moon ' s despair. " Xeta XeSear is one of our neighbors from across the line — an American born and bred. In the Elocution course she has proved herself an excellent student, but we must confess we were surprised at her choice of a course when a certain ring on her left hand told its own stoty. We hear rumors of a change to a home Domestic Science course, and we wish her as great success as she has had in the years spent at her Alma Matei , trusting she will be Fred ' s despair only in the happiest sense. Failing. — Fred. Pastime.— Letter writing and long distance phoning. " A mind at peace with all below. " IDina paecoe The west has again given us an ex- ample of the quality of its young wo- manhood. About Vina we can truly say,— ' ' A perfect woman. " Fortunate indeed is the man who wins Vina for a wife ; he would find not a better cook or housewife in the Dominion. She is a graduate in the Household Science course, and as the only graduate in the department carried off the gold medal, but we are confident with her 85 per cent, average she would have been equally successful had there been a dozen others competing. Ambition.— To be a second Miss Porte. Weakness.— Modesty. " A creature not too bright or good. " Dera patnch is another of our Westerners hailing from the prosperous town of vSouris, Man. Vera took the M.E.L. course — did well of course— as all our prairie girls do. In spite of her heavy work she found time to indulge in certain forbidden college frivolities, v hich, she is convinced, passed her in her ex- ams. We hear a rumor of Vera re- turning to Ontario to take a Univer- sity course. We hope you will. Vera. Ambition. — To be a B. A. Antipathy. — Pow-wows. " Hail to thee, blithe spirit. " (5ertrut)e IReli ea Cornwall, Ont., proudly claims this 1914 graduate. Gertrude is one of the five graduates in Elocution, and dis- tinguished herself by carrying off the ■ medal for highest standing in that de- . partment. Her genial disposition has won for her many friends, who wish her every success. Pet Expression. — Hello, Liz. Hobby. — Music teachers. " I would have paid her for a kiss. " Canada XKIlbitesi e belongs to Little Britain, Ont,,— was ' ' born to blush unseen, " but not to vox COLLEGII 11 waste her sweetness on the desert air. She has the distinction of being the smallest graduate— in stature but not in worth. Her size has doubtless stood her in good stead when the veg- etable garden enticed maidens within its domains. A strawberry plant mayhap provided her with an excellent hiding place from the prying eyes of the powers that be, on these occasions. Canada won many laurels in ' Twelfth Night ' ' in the role of Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Ambition.— The stage. Weakness.— The onion patch. Graduation Exercises The graduation exercises, which ex- tended from Thursday to Monday, Jun© 22, were successful in every way. The weather was ideal for this crowning event of the school year, the grounds looked their best and the various ex- ercises passed without a hitch. Every June, since the birth of the College, forty years ago, ' girls have taken the same pride and interest in preparing for these closing exercises, —practicing for the final concerts, and decorating the exhibit rooms with flowers — daisies from the same old daisy field. However, we are inclined to question if girls of other vears saw quite such laudable results of their year ' s work. ' TWELFTH NIGHT. ' ' On Thursday night, June 18th, the Dramatic Club of the College, under the supervision of Miss Florence O ' - Brien, gave one of Shakespeare ' s in- imitable comedies, ' Twelfth Night. " Although difficult to stage, and still more difficult to act, it was a huge success, and the audience seemed to appreciate the fact that only by hard work and many rehearsals, such a bril- liant result could be accomplished. The girls chosen for the different parts seemed to be especially suited to the characters given them to por- tray, and the play was certainly done well. Viola— Leta LeGear. Olivia— Gertrude Relyea. Orsino, Duke of lUyria— Claribel Hicks. Sir Toby Belch, uncle to Olivia — Alice Butler. Sir Andrew Aguecheek — Canada Whiteside. Malvolio, steward to Olivia— Olive Holliday. Sebastian, brother to Viola— Cath- lyne Darch. Antonio, friend to Sebastian— Cath- arine McCormick. Maria,01ivia ' s woman— Greta White.

Saturday dawned bright and clear, a perfect day for the beautiful exercises of Class Day— Seniors ' Day. The ex- ercise took place at 4 o ' clock on the 12 VOX COLLEGIl lawn. A platform had been erected with an exquisite background of dark mystic cedars and feathery silver birches. Chairs were arranged in front on the sloping lawn for the aud- ience, and the graduates in white dresses and college gowns took their places on the platform during the ex- ercises, which consisted of the ' :la " ss oration, poemi, prophecy and will. At 5.30 the Juniors entertained the vSen- iors at a banquet, and at 8 p.m. the graduating class gave a concert. At the close of the concert a very inter- esting feature of the day s event was the bonfire on the lawn. The Seniors formed a circle around the blaze and in turn stepped forward and threw in their least loved school book, accom- panying the act with a sigh of relief and a rhyme. Ethel Hare consigned her chemistry to the flames with the remark : Here goes my chemistry. You made it hot for me Now I ' ll make it hot for you. Gertrude Relyea, with a beaming smile cried : Here goes my Psycho logy, It owes me an apology. With one glad grin I throw it in. With a scowl on her noble brow Con stance Kilborn exclaimed with marh fervor : The clouds grow thick, the sky o ' ercast, As Physic ' s hour draws nigh, Then die the death, ye matchless pest Fie on thee, villian, Fie, oh Fie ! Vera Patrick ' s T.atin Prose entered Its last resting place with these words from its owner : Here goes my Latin Prose, And with it all my woes. May those who tread upon its toes Know more than I at present knows. Canada Whiteside laughed a laugh of glee when her despised book went up in smoke, and she cried : These perfective laws I cast into the fire, And with delight watch them rise higher. For all M. E. girls will agree That worse books they never did see. From Bessie Lee came this r hyme : and fire was in her eye as she cried : The book which I the most do hate, Which kept me early, kept me late, Which haunts me to this very date I yield thee to thy fiery fate. My Chemistry. When the last loathed book was cast into the flames the Seniors joined hands with the Juniors and danced a- round the bonfire singing college songs. It is a picture we shall always love to remember, — the blazing bonfire casting weird gleams of light down the lawn, making the trees stand out in dark and mysterious shapes within the cir- cle of light, and the group of happy white-robed girls dancing gladly a- round the blaze, their voices rising in some of the dear old-fashioned songs, then breaking into a rollicking modern one and finally ending with Good- night ladies, and ' Three Cheers for Everybody. CLASS ORATION, 1914. Within our College walls exists a universe, a small one, it is true, but yet a very important one. Each stu- dent is a citizen, not ranked as the world ranks citizens, but as Soph- mores, Juniors and Seniors. In our small universe we have our moral, so- cial, and what might almost be called our political factors. Each thoughtful student realizes that she has her work to do and her place to fill in this col- lege world, and feels her respoUvSibil- ities. What are the thoughts, feelings and ambitions of the new student who has just left home, perhaps for the first time ? With what zeal and enthusiasm is the junior year entered upon, and how different and more mature the thoughts and ideals ? Then the joy and satisfaction of hav- ing gained the right of being a senior! I can hear ' senior privileges ' envious- ly whispered, but the real pleasure comes from a knowledge of the fact vox COLLEGII 13 that something is actually being ac- complished. Study takes up a great part of the senior ' s life, so to the jun- iors, I would say, don ' t take your- selves too seriously. College is a great responsibility and a privilege, but is only an incident in the average length of human life. Don ' t take it as a ponderous responsibility and an un- wieldly privilege, but play it as a game with zest, enthusiasm and enjoy- ment. I say to all the citizens of our small universe, that the secret of success in college life is first to plan carefully, and, secondly, to see that the plans are carried out in detail and with thoroughness. Is not College life a splendid train- ing for ' ' World Citizenship ? " The mind of the student is trained to grap- ple with, difficulties and to be respon- sive and retentive. The study of Languages, History, Sciences, Mathematics, Literature, Art and Music ; the storing the brain with the thoughts of the wise and the lab- ors of the good ; all help to create a ' ' world mind. " To-day, it is the privilege of the stu- dent to rise above the limitations which encircled past generations and to be in touch with world movements. We of Ontario Ladies ' College are bound up with two of the greatest world movements, the Young Women ' s Christian Association and the Student Volunteer Movement. What are the qualities of a true world citizen ? Education is a necessity, but educa- tion alone is not sufFicient. Sympathv and understanding, which involve kmd- ness, thoughtfulness, helpfulness, un- selfishness and service, are needed. The College affords splendid oppor- tunities for the training and develop- ment of these qualities. There re al- ways those who are outside the cur- rent of college spirit. What kindness and unselfishness is necessary to cre- ate friendship among these ? To learn to like all and make others like us is one of the most important tasks one must give herself, to fit herself for world citizenship. To do this . it is necessary that the study of many dif- ferent characters be made, and in learning the characters of others, we enrich and enlarge our own. The most vital way of enlarging sympathies is that of service. What great opportunities college life affords for service; assistance in studies; help in trouble or illness ; a word of sympa- thy or cheer to the newcomer, who is afflicted by that malady commonly known as homesickness. Does this not teach us how to offer sympathy and gain confidence, when we leave College and become citizens of the larger world ? Such a training in the sym- pathies brings remarkable results. The narrow and the little in us is broken down and we move into a larger place. All these qualities may be possessed by an individual, and yet it is impos- sible that that individual become a true world citizen to-day unless he or she be in vital relationship with the World ' s Friend, Jesus ChrisL The religious influences which sur- round students in Colleges and Univer- sities at the present time, make it pos- sible for the College citizen to become a true world citizen. The real Christian is the real world citizen. Muriel H. Freeman. BACCALAUREATE SERMON. The Baccalaureate sermon was preached this year by the Rev. J.W. Aikens, of the Metropolitan Church, Toronto. Mr. Aikens took as his text Prov. 31 : 29-30. Though perfection may never be reached it is infinitely better to fail, aiming at a high ideal, than to have no ideal at all. One of the true wo- manly characteristics is self-respect, to always keep her dignity. Man was cre- ated a little lower than God, and we are His offspring. What person is so totally depraved that no touch of 14 VOX COLLEGII Christ can be found in him. Even in the most desolate, degraded, filthy tiomes some love of the beautiful may be seen, perhaps only a tiny flower in an old can, but it shows love of the beautiful. And the daughters are the corner- stones ; not on the top as ornaments, but the foundation. The corner stones are polished to bring out the natural beauty. Culture and education should bring out the character of a woman, and not appear as a veneer. The daughters are the ' ' home makers, ' ' a the homes have more influence on our country than Parjiamients. Two spirits blend and make an atmosphere, and that atmosphere is the home, and it holds such a high place in the mind of God that He sent His only Son in- to a home and he continued to live there for thirty years. Our schools also ar e almost entirelv in the hands of women, especially the primary departments, and the impres- sions made on a child ' s mind during the first ten years of its life will re- main with it ; so, again, the import- ance of true womanliness. There are three classes in the world to-day— those who neglect their oppor- tunities, those who go to excess, and those who fit themselves for their life work. It is the individual interest and at- tention that is going to win the world. From the interest of one wom-an in another ' s trouble, has resulted the mother ' s pension. And. too, a woman needs to be practical, for to what end is all her learning and education if she can put it to no use ? A person who loves some living thing is not al- together bad. Jacob, though he sin- Tied, loved Rachel with such a love that the years he worked and waited were as a few days. Gypsy Smith tells of an incident when he was a boy. His father had secured some expensive eggs and set them under a hen. The boy thought to try an experiment and slip- ped an ordinary egg under, too. When the chickens were hatched there was one small mongrel chick with the oth- er fine ones, but the mother hen took just as good care of it and protected it just as much as the others. Surely God, whose offspring we are, will care for us if we love Him, even though we may not have as much talent as some one else. And, again, we must have love for our country. Paul loved his country. The Icelanders love their,s, and surely we Canadians love our country. Probably this is the last chance we will have to bring in the K ingdom of God in Can- ada. We need to be able to see visions, to see the beautiful and won- derful hand of God in nature, not the commercial value. A woman ' s ideal should be in Jesus, but she must open the door herself that He may enter, and that she may be a blessing. A woman that feareth God she shall be blessed. GRACE HAIG. CLOSING DAY. The culmination of the series of con- certs and class exercises begun on Thursday, June 18th, came on Mon- day in the Commencement Day pro- gram. The final day of the Commence- ment exercises was the crowning event of the series. A special train from To- ronto brought a large number of rel- atives and friends of the girl grad- uates. At 3.30 on the arrival of the train a concert was held in the con- cert hall, consisting of a cantata and other musical numbers. Following is the day ' s program : Cantata— " A Sea Dream, " hy Battison Haynes. Characters : Recitation (accompanied)— Miss Alice Butler. Syren Queen— Miss Marguerite Homuth, soprano. Fisher Bride ' Elsie " — Miss Margaret Messer, soprano. Two Syrens— Miss Mahel Sharpe, Miss Dora Patrick. Chorus of Syrens— Choral Class. Argument. The Storm King has lashed the sea with a mighty hurricane. Giant billows and vox COLLEGII 15 wild commotion have reigned on the dark and thunderous main. But now the temp- est, wearied with its long unrest, has taken flight, and the peaceful moon is send- ing its silvery rays over the quietened deep. The low murmur of the surge adds to the quiet restfulness of the scene. The Syren Queen is singing, and soon is joined by a chorus of Syrens, They are the good fairies of the ocean, soothing the ice-bound sailors and coming to the rescue of the storm tossed fishing boats. Their happy «ongs are hushed when they hear gentle footsteps on the sand. A sad little fisher bride sings her pathetic songs to the cruel sea as she scans the water in a vain hope of seeing her lover ' s sail. The Syrens sing a song of hope and cheer to the little maid- en, telling her that his barque had been up- borne by the gay Syrens of the ocean. While they are singing her, lover ' s sail is %een, a tiny speck on the blue. The maid- en is happy again, and the Syrens sing their thanks to the mighty ocean. " Oh Mighty Sea, O Glorious Sea, Thus ever may thine answer be. " Recitation (accompanied) — " The Storm. " Solo (Svren Queen)— " There ' s a Warmer Light. " Solo and Chorus— " From the Caverns.

May Day Exercises May Day dawned this year with a cloudy sky and falling drops, and over a hundred faces reflected the disap- pointment of the weather as the girls gathered to breakfast. The heavy rain made it impossible to hold May Day exercises upon the lawn, but, nothing daunted, all set to work with a will to decorate the gymnasium, and prepared for the crowning of the May Queen under cover. At about ten-thir- ty in the forenoon, all assembled in the concert hall for one of the most interesting events of the day, the ad- dress on the Ideal Woman, given this year by the Rev. Dr. W. H. Hincks, of Toronto. Rev. Mr. Sexsmith, of Whitby, was presiding chairman, and introduced to us the speaker. A most brilliant and instructive address fol- lowed, one which greatly aided the voters in directing their ballots to the highest ideals represented among them. Some of the qualities of ideal girlhood which Dr. Hincks especially empha- sized were, training, self-control, com- passionateness, practicability, indi- vidualism, healthy mindedness, sanity in dress, beauty of character, and last, but by no means least, faith in Christ. The passing of the ballot is a mom,ent of breathless excitement to all, and a hushed expectancy fell over the girls as the name of the May Queen was vox COLLEGIl 17 whispered to the chairman ' ' Olive Hol- liday A thunder of applause greeted this announcement and gay congratu- lations were called from every side as the Queen elect was hurried away to prepare for the coming ceremony. The Queen ' s Counsellors were next chosen, who proved to be Leara Gillis and Greta White, to the evident satisfac- tion of all. The vote for the name to be placed on the Nelson shield follow- ed, and Constance Kilborn attained this honor. Garnham, May Queen of last year, and Miss Alice Gott, May Queen of several years ago. Mrs. Hincks crowned the Queen, who then mounted her throne to the music of God Save the King. Then came the dances, especially pre- pared for the entertainment of the May Day guests. The May Pole dance, rendered by thirty pretty girls in yel- low and gold , was very charming. They appeared as so many butterflies with their big: gauzy black wings and bright costumes, as they twined the black and May Pole. All adjourned to the gymnasium, where the grand march took place, in which all the girls, attired in pretty white dresses, joined. When they had drawn up in two long lines, after being favored by Edna Wakefield with a de- lightful solo, the May Queen appeared. She made a pretty picture in her sim- ple white dress with the customary long silken train, born by the two small attendants. The Royal Proces- sion was miade up of the counsellors of this year, Leara Gillis, Greta White ; Dora Patrick and Florence Oberholt- zer, counsellors of last year ; Corona white streamers about the pole. The Indian dance, very striking and fan- tastic, was performed by twelve girls in Indian dress and feathers, who whirled into sight bearing a real ca- noe on their shoulders in which sat a dainty Indian Princess. The specta- tors were loud in praise of these enter- taining performances, and Miss O ' - Brien, the instructress, was deservedly rewarded by a beautiful bunch of Amer- ican beauties. Dinner was welcome to all, for already the noon hour was past. In the meantime the Weather God showed he hadn ' t altogether for- 18 VOX COLLEGII gotten us, for, while we were busy at the noon-tide meal, a few shy sun- beams stole through the scurrying clouds, and turned the dripping eart into sparkle and perfume. Hurrah for a picnic, " ' cried all, and old Sol replied with a burst of warm, bright glory. To the delight of everyone, the lumbering hayracks drew up to the ded patiently through the twilight of a sunkissed earth. The beautiful en- tertainment of the evening, the fire- works, greeted us on our arrival, and all watched these fairy enchantments of mean ' s creation with genuine delight. " Thus ended a day long to be cherished and remembered in the hearts of the 1914 O.L.C. girls. Indians. door, and a merry throng piled into the fragrant hay, quite ready to com- mence th€ long enjoyable ride to Cor- bett ' s Point. The lake reached, the girls scattered along the shore, and amused themselves searching for fos- sils or doing whatever their fancy pleased. The call for supper broue everyone quickly together, and sand- wiches, lemonade, cake, bananas and all th€ necessities of the picnic were produced and quickly demolished. Then the homeward trip was begun, and the tired merrvmakers were glad to think of the coming rest, as the horses plod- The May Queen this year has been unusually fortunate. From Meda Watt, a May Queen of two years ago, came the followmg letter to Dr. Hare : Dawson City, April 15. ' 14. Dear Sir : I am sending you, under separate cover, a little pin, which I would like you to give to the girl who is chosen May Queen on the 24th. The crown, I thought, was quite appropriate, and the nuggets on it, a souvenir of the Yukon. I should like so much to be at the College that day, but as I am vox OLLEGII 19 away up here in the far north I am a- fraid such a thing, would be impossible. However, my thoughts will be with you, and of course I will be wondering who will be chosen as Queen. I hope that you will have a nice bright day and that all will have a real jolly time. Sincerely yours, MEDA WATT. On the closing day a further surprise awaited the Queen in the form of a medal, presented by the Powell sisters, to her as the Ideal Woman ' ' of the College. The idea of the medal was a very happy one, for it empha- sizes the fact that our students are- honoring, not necessarily the cleverest or handsomest girl of the College, but the one who has come nearest to their ideal of what perfect womanhood should be. Junior Concert and Banquet On May 22nd everyone ' s curiosity was aroused by a poster declaring that the opening of the Junior Hippodrome would take place the followmg even- ing. At 7.30 there was a full house, and after several popular airs had been rendered by the orchestra, the curtain was rung up and the first playlet ' The French Maid and the Phonograph ' was given. CAST : Flossie Green— Catharine McCormick. Mollie Green— Georgina Smith. Lotta Ayres— Marjorie Garlock. Mrs. Green— Edna Grant. Mary Ann French— Mary Valentine. Pauline— Grace King. Gladys— Ruby Coxworth. Lotta Ayres poses as a wealthy American who spends most of her time in Paris, has a French maid and speaks French like a Parisian. She tries to persuade her friend Flossie Green to learn French and to employ a French maid at any cost. During a ' conversation between the two, Mrs. Green enters and says that as it is Flossie ' s birthday, she may have what she likes if it doesn ' t cost more than ten dollars. A knock is heard at the dooi, and Mme. Renaud enters with a wonderful phonograph for sale which will teach one to speak French perfectly and in a very short time. Flossie is delighted, and decides up- on this as her birthday gift ; but Mr«. Green is doubtful. Mme. Renaud dis- covers that Lotta is not what she seems, and threatens to disclose tnis if she does not persuade her friend to take the phonograph. She gives them, an hour to decide while she goes next door. While Mme. Renaud is gone, and Flossie is out of the room, Mollie, her little sister, engages a maid and coaxes her to pose as French. When Flossie returns she decides to engage her rather than buy the phono- graph, and upon Mme. Renaud ' s re- turn Lotta ' s true position is revealed and Flossie decides that a birthdpv cake is more desirable than French maids or phonographs. Then Kilborn and Follick, the ' Ai- most Acrobats, " performed fearful and wonderful feats upon the gymn mat- tresses and made most graceful bows after each stunt. Terry and McCormick, ' ' Black Faced Comedians, " cracked a few stale jokes and upon receiving a threatening note from a stage hand, deemed it wise to retire to the wings. Last, but by nO ' means least, came " The Artist ' s Dream. " Scene — De Lipkau ' s Studio. Cast : Maurice De Lipkau— Ruth Day. Jeannette Horton— Margaret Messer., 20 VOX COLLEGII Gaby De Chevrier (portrait)— Greta White. Statues — Catherine Breithaupt, Cathlyne Darch, Verda Day, Marion Williams, Dorothy Chambers, Marjorie Warden. When the curtain parted it revealed a softly-lighted artist ' s studio with groups of beautiful statues. De Lip- kau is near painting a portrait of the fashionable society belle Jeannette Horton, who is in love with him, but he, having put his very soul into his painting of ' ' La Belle Parisienne, ' ' is deceived into believing himself in love with the subject which has been his ideal, and only when she is brought to life does he discover her personality and comes to appreciate bis true love Jeannette. The performance closed with class songs and God Save the King. New Teachers The College has been singularly for- tunate in being able to engage the fol- lowing teachers for the ensuing year to fill vacancies in the staff : Moderns and Classics. After a bril- liant course at the University of To- ronto, graduating with first-class hon- ors in Moderns and History, she at- 1. Miss Jean Lang, B.A. At her honor matriculation into Toronto Uni- versity she took honors in Classics, Modern Languages and English, and won the Edward Blake Scholarship in tended the Faculty of Education, and secured her Specialist ' s Teacher ' s Cer- tificate. 2. Miss Nellie Wall, M. Sc. The fol- lowing is a summary of her education vox COLLEail 21 and training : Liverpool College for girls, 1898-1902, Central Technical University in 1903, a Senior City School, Liverpool, 1902-03, obtaining a Senior Matriculation into Liverpool Council Science Scholarship— became Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (pure and applied) , Physics and Chem- istry in 1906 when she won a special scholarship— spent another year in ad- vanced work and became Master of Science. She has had seven vears ' suc- cessful experience in teaching both Science and Mathematics in two of the leading County and High Schools for girls in England. As to her inter- est in Christian service, it may be stated that during her University car- eer, she was President of the Christian Union of the University, and was for two years in succession the chosen delegate to the Students ' Missionary Conference. 3. Miss Adabel Courtice, graduate of Dr. Sargent ' s School of Physical Cul- ture in Boston. The thoroughness and extent of this course may be judged from the fact that Miss Courtice spent three whole years in Boston, giving her entire time to the study and prac- tice of gymnastics, swimming, etc., spending a couple of summers in camp life perfecting her knowledge, and qualifying her to teach. 4. Mr. T. G. Greene, O.S.A., the ney Director of the Art Department, is at present the President of the So- ciety of Graphic Art, a member of the Ontario Society of Artists, Arts and Letters Clubs, etc.. At the recent ex- hibition in Toronto one of his paint- ings was purchased by the Ontario Government, and one by the Commis- sion representing the Dominion Gov- ernment. It is our intention during the com- ing year to provide for a full gradua- tion course in physical culture leading to a diploma, also to arrange for a Summer Camp during the following summer under the direction of our teachers of physical culture, liter- ature, nature study, etc. J.

" June has come with its final exams, commencement week, graduation exer- cises and the last goodbyes on the morning of the 23rd. The goodbyes are hard, aren ' t they, girls, even though we have looked forward so eagerly to closing ? For some it means the end of school days — the happy care-free time of life, and June 23rd with its goodbyes is touched with sadness for them. We are proud of our 1914 Sen- iors,— they have indeed been a credit to their Alma Mater, and they leave with our love and good wishes. What our Seniors have accomplished through hard and faithful work should be an mspiration to each of us. Their train- ing at College, the difficulties they have conquered, fit them ' ' to breathe the world thought and do the world deed. ' ' I think the motto of our grad- uates, although unexpressed, may be : " To be alive in such ati age- To live to it. To give to it ! " COLLEGE FRIENDSHIPS, The word ' ' friendships " brings to the mind of each of us happy associations of College days. Unfortunate indeed is the girl who has not felt the joy, . the rich content one experiences in the miracle of friendship. For it is a mir- acle,— this wonderful thing called friendship. " Friends are born not made. " We find it hard to tell how these friendships began. They came through no effort of ours, but they have become part of our lives and we just accept them with sweet content and glad confidence. Many of the greatest and noblest friendships have been made at College. Here we come in contact with those who are congen- ial, those whose tastes resemble ours, who have the same ambitions and as- pirations. These friendships may have been an education in themselves for ex- change of thought, and the practice of expressing oneself to one ' s friends is of benefit intellectually. There mav be many of these congenial spirits a- mong our college acquaintances whom we like to call friends, but there can only be one or two in the inner circle of friendship— of the David and Jon- athan type. Hugh Black, in his charm- ing little book on friendships, writes very beautifully about this typical friendship, (David and Jonathan) — " They met, and at the meeting knew each other to be nearer than kindred. By subtle affinity they felt that they belonged to each, other. Out of all the chaos of the time and the disorder of vox COLLEGII 23 their lives ' there arose for these two souls a new and beautiful world, where there reigned peace and love and sweet content. It was the miracle of the death of self. This great miracle of friendship with its infinite wonder and beauty may be denied to us. To pos- sess it is to have one of the world ' s sweetest gifts. ' ' College may be the loneliest and most unhappy place in the world, if one is alone in the crowd without friends,— but it may be the happiest, if the numbers hold even one who is in the truest sense worthy of the name —friend, one who has seen in us the best, and for that very fact, called forth the best from us. Our college loves have made our path easier, smoother, and the hard things easier to bear. They have made our lives richer and happier, but, oh, let us beware of the danger of letting these old friendships lapse after the college days are over, when new inter- ests crop up, and new relations are formed. The beautiful words of Ruth, of days long gone by, will be an example of faithfulness to friends for ages to come : Entreat me not to leave thee, And to return from following after thee For whither thou goest, I will go ; And where thou lodgest, I will lodge ; Thy people shall be my people, And thy God, my God ; Where thou diest, will I die, And there will I be buried : The Lord do so to me, and more also Tf aught but death part thee and me. " THANK YOU. The ' Vox " staff wishes to heartily thank all those who have contributed to the ' ' Vox " during the year. The ' ' Vox " would not be possible were it not for the valuable assistance it has received from a certain few. We earn- estly hope you will give our success- ors less " indifference and more loyal support, by subscribing promptly for the magazine, giving any helpful sug- gestions that may occur to you, and, above all, in handing in material. Don ' t be shy ! If your fir3t attempt isn ' t accepted— try again, and you will be assured at least of the gratitude of the Editor. We hope you will like our last issue. We have, one and all, work- ed hard to make it the " best ever, " and we will be rewarded if you vote it A 1 !• CHANGES IN THE FACULTY. Those returning in the Fall will find two or three changes in the faculty. Miss Findlay, Miss Weir, Miss Gordon and Miss Clough will not be back, a fact which will be deeply regr.etted by students and teachers. They leave with our sincerest wishes for success and happiness. Owing to the fact that this is Grad- uation Number, and that we have wished to give our space chiefly to the matters incident to the Closing Week, the usual reports from the Music, Do- mestic Science and Oratory Depart- ments and the Y.W.C.A. have been omitted. We should, however, like to make special reference to one or two facts. Miss Clough, who this y ar is leaving us to become a member ot the staff of the Toronto Conservatory, generously gave us a musical treat on the evening of May ISth. She not only delighted her audience, but she 24 VOX COLLEGIl enriched the treasury of the Trafalgar Daughters by some eighteen dollars. Marguerite Homuth was the vocalivSt of the evening, and rendered several songs with considerable ability. The excellent examination results are in themselves sufficient evidence of the work of th.e Musical Department. The Y.W.C.A. has to the very end of the year had a real place in the College life. Though money cannot measure spiritual influences, yet it is gratifying to know that the girls give ungrudg- ingly to further the various good causes which the Y.W.C.A. tries to help. We have paid half the expenses of representatives to the Conferences at Kansas City, Kingston and Elgin House. A bale has been sent to Nor- way House, Cross Lake, where Mr. and Mrs. Gaudin are working among the Indians. Mrs. Gaudin is herself an old O.L.C. student. After a contribution has been sent to the Dominion Council we still have sixty dollars, which we intend to divide between missions in China and Japan, in which OJ..C. is specially interested. Our last meeting this year was on the afternoon of Bac- calaureate Sunday, when we had the great pleasure of hearing from Mrs. Kilborn about her work in China. From the fact that we have had Con- stance and Cora in our midst for four years, we have been particularly inter- ested in the work of Dr. and Mrs. Kil- born, and we were delighted to hand over to her a cheque for $25 for the new hospital in which she is so inter- ested.

The day was cool and rainy without, but, nothing daunted, the Daughters turned their steps homeward. It was their day within College halls, and each was assured of a welcome. Miss Taylor and Miss Kate Wright voiced the cheery welcome home greet- ing to the Daughters upon the arrival of the Toronto train. A splendid re- presentation came from the Queen City chapter, including President Mrs. Atkinson, Mrs. 0 Sullivan, ex-Presi- dent, Mrs. Hales, Mrs. Mader (Marion Pearson), Mrs. J. McCutcheon (Minnie Graham), Mrs. N. Brock Wilkins (Jes- sie B. Campbell), Mrs. J. Tomlinson, (Minnie Mullin), Mrs. J. Chas. Web- ster i ' Nora E. Hamilton), Mrs. A.R. Riches (E. T. Mutton), Mrs. W. W. Sloan (Edyth Young), Mrs. J.D. At- kinson (Dora McMurtry), Mrs. James Hales (Marion Scoley), Mrs. Gallan- augh, and the Misses Aikenhead. From Uxbridge came Mrs. Nicholls, one of the favorite daughters, whose life from early girlhood " has been link- ed closely with the interests of the College; Mrs. Warner (Luella McAm- mond), from Woodstock; Miss Ada Robertson, MaxwelL The genial face of Mrs. Graham (Til- lie Bricker), of Brampton, recalled bright school days. Ottawa Chapter was represented by Mrs. Burkholder (Violet Bell), and Mrs. Leslie Javis (Barbara Pratt). Our town Daughters present were Miss Maud Annes, Miss Nellie Harper, Miss Bella Cormack, Miss Lizzie Foth- ergill, Mrs. W. J.H. Richardson (Fran- ces Bowes), Mrs. E. Edmund Starr (Ida Powell), Mrs. Albert W. Jackson (Clara O. Holden), Mrs. Geo. A. Ross (Elizabeth French), Mrs. T.G. Whit- field (Emma L. Hatch) , Miss Donald- son. Miss Taylor (our President), Mrs. Homuth, Miss Kate Wright, Misses Marian Finley, Grace Clough, Marjorie Newton, Marjorie Gordon, Leonore Porte, Alice Gott, Florence O ' Brien, Florilla Sparling, represented our re- sident members. After greetings were exchanged and names recorded in the register in the board room, we gathered in the Chap- el to consider formally the affairs of Trafalgar Daughters. As we looked around at the interested and interest- ing faces and thought of our purpose. The Advancement of Womanhood, ' ' we realized how wise we had been to organize our Association. Many and varied were the honors and experience represented, and with the wealth of energy, all with one accord had come to bind more closly the tie between school days, of girlhood, and the broader life beyond Commencement day. President Miss Taylor in a few choice words expressed our hopes and possibilities, based upon what had been accomplished in the past. Thoup not with us at inception (1907), our worthy President has become deeply interested in our Association. With her 26 VOX COLLEGII sat the charming President of Toronto Chapter, Mrs. Atkinson, while the sec- retaries of these two chapters, Mrs. Ross and Miss Aikenhead, shared the table provided for them. After opening with the Lord ' s Prayer in concert, Mrs. Ross, Whitby ' s Secre- tary, read the minutes of 1913 annual meeting, which were approved. The Treasurer, Mrs. Richardson, then submitted her report, with a fine balance on the right side of $547.97, which was greeted with warm ap- plause. The corresponding secretary ' s report included a letter of greeting from our ex-President, Miss Burkholder ; also a criticism re question of the day, name- ly, notice of motion. Miss Burkholder expressed for Trafalgar Daughters of Edmonton the desire to retain the Scholarship fund. A notice of motion to amend the constitution was then moved by Mrs. 0 ' Sullivan, and second- ed by Mrs. Atkinson, in reality a re- construction of the constitution, as follows : CONSTITUTION. Article 1. Name— This Association shall be known as tjie . Trafalgar Daughters of 6. L. C. t iVi .TA .- Article 2.

Article 3. Standing Committee.— Convenors of committees in each chap- ter shall be elected at the annual meeting. Mrs. Richardson moved that the fund established in 1910, and known as the Scholarship Fund, be retained. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Whit- field, and after due consideration was carried. All articles of constitutian were duly and carefully considered before adoption, and we trust all absentees will approve of the action taken. Trafalgar Daughters will note that our hope of 1907 has been realized in so far as we have branched out just as the college home has done, and with the Governing Board as the Horne Chapter, have local chapters here and there, as Ottawa, Whitby, Toronto, Edmonton, each contributing to the Board, all one in purpose,— the ad- vancement of Womanhood, a bond of union and interest between College and College days and the world, the College the center of our interest. That the interest of our College is advancing, was marked by a motion to be forwarded to the Board of Directors by our Secretary requesting that a representation from our Association be elected on the Board of Directors. At the close of the session the Daughters accepted the cordial invita- tion of Miss Taylor, and adjourned ' the dining hall, where, with Dr. and Mrs. Hare, Miss Taylor, Mrs. Green- wood and the staff, the Association enjoyed a pleasant social hour. All too soon the hour passed, when Mrs. Gra- ham voiced the pleasure of the Dauo-b- ters in once again meeting- top-etber with our Principal, the staff and each other. Mrs. O ' Sultivan, with her ready Irish wit, led in the old song, ' ' They are jolly good fellows. ' Dr. Hare made a happy reply, and preparations were made for the de- parture of the guests, for, as of old, the bus came hurrying up to the door, and, thrilled with the pleasure of the home visit, we said adieu to our host and hostesses. PERSONALS. All Trafalgar Daughters were griev- ed to hear that Mis ' S Clara Chatter- son, the faithful friend of school days, is a patient in Wellesley hospital, and a message of sympathy was sent with flowers from the Association. We were glad to see again within O.L.C. walls Mrs. Burkholder, with her wee daughter. We hope in the near future to claim this College grand- daughter as a pupil. An ever welcome visitor. Miss Ada Robertson, was one of the Daughters at the Association meeting. Mrs. Madcr, nee Marion Pearson, an earnest student of eax-ly days of O.L. C, was especially vvel.:om2. Vve scarcely realized how the years have passed, until she reminded us that her daughter is to be married this autumn. She noted with interest the many im- provements in O.L.C. since her grad- uation day. The greeting from our late Presi- dent, Miss Burkholder, was one of the pleasures of the afternoon. We are glad the far west has not deprived us of the love and best wishes of Miss Burkholder. All those associated with her in College days treasure the mem- ory of those days together. We missed from our midst Mrs. Hol- liday (Nellie Harrison) and regret that sorrow prevented her from being wit us. We extend the sympathy of our Association. Miss Hopewell, of Ottawa, is to be one of the Tune brides. Trafalgar Daughters send wedding greetings. Trafalgar Daughters show their in- terest in education bv the awarding of prizes at the annual commencement. 28 TOX COLLEGIl In the Literary Department Miss Annes presented a history prize, wliich was won by Miss M. Williams. In first year English Miss Taylor presented a prize, which was won by Miss C. Kil- born. Miss Donaldson s prize in Art Needlework department was won by Miss Irene McMillen. Mrs. John L. Barnard ' s medal for highest standing in Art Needlework was won by Miss Gertrude Britnell. The Powell-Starr medal to the ideal woman of 1914 was won by Miss Olive HoUiday. Miss O ' - Brien ' s Junior Elocution prize was won by Miss Ruth Day. Miss Ada Stonehouse ( ' 09), of Lari- more, North Dakota, was the guest of Miss Norma Wright for a short time m June. Miss Jean Root ( ' 10), is playing with Adele Blood in Stock Company in Toronto this summer. Born to Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Becker (Lucille Cook), on the 21st of June, a daughter. Paisley, June 9. — At high noon to- day, in the Methodist Church, the marriage was solemnized of James B. Fleming and Mary Anita, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Put- nam. The church was prettily decor- ated with white lilac, snowbalLs and honey locust. V OXOOLLEGir 29 Five Sisters of the Breithaupt Family, Berlin. The above picture represents five daughters of Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Brei- thaupt, of Berlin, all of whom have been students at our College. Mr. Breithaupt is one of the leading cit- izens of Berlin, Mayor of the City, Warden of Waterloo, ex-member of Par- liament, etc. The daughters have oc- cupied successively one of the front rooms of the main building known as No. 9 Lower Main. The eldest. Miss Evelyn Breithaupt, is now Mrs. Dr. Parry, of Hamilton, and the young- est. Miss Katherine Breithaupt, is at present attending the College. The others. Miss Lillian, Miss Edna and Miss Rose, are at home in Berlin. The College cherishes the most kindly feel- ing towards parents and daughters, and wishes them every possible favor and blessing in life which thej so richly deserve. 30 VOX COLLEGli i ' Ar I m The Departm(ent of Fine Art closed this year with the usual exhibition of Drawing, Painting and Ker amies. Drawing in charcoal seems to have been emphasized this year, and the re- sult has been a high standard of ex- cellence in the drawings shown in tlie Chapel. The still life studies show how those working in color spend the winter months, and the sight of the many dainty sketches that were hung on the drawing-room walls ought to have well rewarded the weather man for giving the sketching class so many lovely days. The china needs a paragraph all to itself. Mr. Manly considered the work so good this year that he gave his prize in this department. Keen com- petition was in tUe air for the last month or so. The tea plates to be designed and executed without instruc- tion by each pupil were guarded in the most jealous fashion, and the suspense written on every face during ' ' fires, was tragic. We are sorry that our Art Director,. Mr. CM. Manly, R.C.A., is leaving us this year. For the past four years Mr. Manly has been here, and during that time his pupils have had nothing to wish for in the way of helpful in- struction and cheerful encouragement. His increasing duties at the College of Art in Toronto have made necessary his withdrawal from our staff. Mi Fireside Notes Miss Katie Stevens, one of last year ' s graduates in M.E.L., was the guest of Muriel Freeman over the week-end of May 24th. Cathlyne Darch was pleasantly sur- prised on May 25th by a short visit from her father and mother. Mr. Mrs. Darch motored from Toronto for the afternoon. Miss Phyllis Tew was the guest of her sister, Reta, over the week-end of May 24th, and Mrs. Tew was here for the 25th. Miss Hazel Cleaver, of Burlington, was the guest of Miss Muriel Freeman over the 24th of May, and the Ryer- son girls enjoyed her week-end visi .. very much. vox COLLEGII 31 Sunbonnet Sue. Artists. Characteristic Pose. Jane McFarlane was back visiting her old room-mates, the 9 Mainers, for a week at the 24th of May. Miss Louise Breithaupt, of Berlin, was the guest of Catherine Breithaupt for over the 24th also. Miss Margaret Ramsay, of Toronto, was here for May 24th, as the guest of Deit White, and all the girls wel- comed Peggy warmly. The May Queen of 1913, Miss Cor- ona Garnham, was back for the 1914 May Day exercises, the guest of Let a LeGear. The old girls are always welcome, and among the last year ' s faces seen here on May 24th were Miss Florence Oberholzer, the guest of Helen Go- forth, and Miss Lalla Armstrong , Miss Marion Boyd ' s guest. Miss K,ay Leslie, of Toronto, was here for the 24th, the guest of Deit White. Mrs. McCormick surprised Kizzie on May 25th. She remained at the Col- lege until the next morning, when Kiz- zie had to reluctantly say farewell, • Mr. and Mrs. Day, of Hamilton, spent May 25th with their daughter, Ruth, before sailing for a trip to Eur- ope. Ruth spent the day very happily and since has received exceedingly in- teresting letters of their travels Mrs. By am, of Toronto, was the guest of her sister, Dorothy Chambers, over May 24th, and spent the week- end very pleasantly with Dorothy and her old friends amongst the Faculty. We were all very , sorry indeed that Hope Wilkinson, on account of illness, was unable to remain for Commence- ment, but tr,ust that her summer va- cation will be a very pleasant one. Mrs. Wilkinson was here for the week- end of June 19th, and no doubt Hope ' s recovery was hastened by her mother ' s visit. Some of our Western girls were so anxious to have as much time at home as possible during the summer months that they left for their vacation a week early. Laura Caverly, Myrtle 32 VOX COLLEGll James, Edna Grant and Ruby Cox- worth left on Saturday, June 13th, and their letters to the Upper Ryer- son girls told of the pleasant boat trip they had. We wish them all a very happy summer. Cathlyne Darch left for her home in London a few days early. The girls were all sorry to see her go on Fri- day, June 19th, but are glad to know she is returning next fall. Mrs. Lee, of Waterloo, and Mrs. W. S tr out, of New York, were Bessie Lee ' s guests for over Commencement week- end. Miss Georgia Langmaid is always very welcome at O.L.C., and we were all glad to ®ee her back for Commence- ment week. Mr. and Mrs. Gillis, of Lunenburg, were at the college for Saturday even- ing, June 20th. Gertrude lanson left for home early as she was anxious to have a day or two at her home in Toronto before attending the Y.W.C.A. Convention at Elgin House. Mrs. Follick spent Saturday, June 13th, with her daughter, Lillian. Lil- lian ' s room-mates, as well as the oth- er girls who have met Mrs. Follick, are always glad to see her, and hope that next year she may visit Lillian often. Miss Holmes was the guest of Miss Gordon over the week-end of June 13. On P ' riday evening, June 12th, the Upper Ryerson girls spent a few min- utes togethe r for the last time as a hall. Immediately after Miss Wright ' s recital the girls went to Muriel Free- man ' s room, where they chatted about the good times they had had during the year as a hall, and the four grad- uates, Olive Holliday, Muriel Freeman, Canada Whiteside and Bessie Lee, were each presented with a graduation gift from their friends on the hall. The fifteen minutes (so kindly granted bv Miss Newton) went all too quickly, and it had to end. Owing to the hour the girls did not give their " Upper Ryerson Song, " although they wished very much to do so, but their better judgment bade them not. The girls on this hall have spent many happy hours together during the year, and friends made will not soon be forgotten. Miss Gladys Smith, of Toronto, was the guest of Rita Tew for Commence- ment. Lillian Douglas accompanied Rita to her , home in Toronto, where she intends to spend a week. Miss Weir is spending the week fol- lowing closing in Toronto and Hamil- ton. We regret very much that Misses P ' inlay, Gordon, Weir and Clough are not returning next year, but hope that whenever they have an opportunity they will visit O.L.C. We know that the girls returning will always have a warm spot in their hearts for them and welcome them most heartily when- ever they return. Mrs. Valentine, of Waterloo, spent Commencement Day with her daughter Mary, and went to Toronto on Tues- day morning with Mary and Lillian Follick, who went to Elgin House, Convention, Muskoka, as delegates from the Y. W. C. A. When Mrs. Kilborn returned to China four years ago she left her two daugh- ters, Constance and Cora at the Col- lege. She came home on furlough this spring and the family re-union took place at the College here a few weeks ago. It made us all happy to see them so happy.

Last month ' s Vox left us in uncer- tainty as to the final outcome of the tennis tournaments. Some strenuous and most exciting games were fought, before the finals were at last reached. In the doubles this was played by Grace Haig and Bessie Lee against Constance and Cora Kilborn. The game proved a close one, in favor of the latter, the, score being 6-4 in both sets. The final in singles was played between Jean Hodge and Marion Blacklock. Both being splendid play- ers, the match drew many spectators who cheered each player to do her best. The score closed 6-2 in both sets. The prizes to be awarded in the closing exercises to the winners were a beautiful copy of Ruskins ' works for doubles, and a pretty souvenir spoon of O.L.C. for the singles. Swimming has been making the us- ual rapid progress, and ten more are holders of the coveted Bronze Medal- lion, given by the Royal Life Saving Society. These are Dorothy Barrett, Edna Grant, Ethel Hare, Winnie Mills, Dora Patrick, Myrtle Patrick, Vera Patrick, Elsie Scrimes, Mary Score and Georgina Smith. The still more coveted Silver Medal, the award of merit, was won by two more this month, Lillian Follick and Jean Hodge, making four in all who have attained this prize at O.L.C. After the examinations had been completed for these standings, a contest was held for thxee medals. One offered by Wm. Smith, Esq., M.P., for the champion swimmer of the school, was won by Miss Lillian Follick. This medal was only open to those who held the awar4 of merit. The other two were first and second prizes for those who held the Bronze Medallion. The first place was won by Miss Mabel Sharpe, to whom was awarded a gold medal by Mr. Blight. The second, to whom Dr. Hare awarded a silver medal, was at- tained by Miss Dora Patrick. The 1913-14 year at O.L.C. has been very successful in the maintenance of the athletic spirit. Basketball, base- ball, skating, tobogganing, tennis and swimming have all been enjoyed, and we sincerely hope that our successors of next year will, with equal vigor, continue to uphold the physical side of College life. 34 TOX COLLEGII The aeroplane making a twelve-hour journey from London to Hong Kong had encountered difficulties among the stars.

PIANO SALON 193-195-197 YONGE ST., TORONTO, CANADA } vox COLLEGII The Crisp, Tasty Toast Food science has taught us that there is much body-building nutriment in the whole wheat grain which we do not get in white flour. The only question is how to make the whole wheat grain digestible. That problem has been solved in the making of TRISCUIT the shredded whole wheat wafer. It is the whole wheat, steam-cooked shredded, compressed into a wafer, and baked — the maximum of nutriment in smallest bulk. Many people prefer it to ordinary bread toast. Heated in the oven to restore its crispness it is delicious for luncheon, «r for any meal, with butter, potted cheese or marmalades. • THE TOAST OF THE TOWN " Made of Choicest Sele cted Canadian Wheat A Canadian Food for Canadians Made by Tke CanadiaD Shredded Wheat CompaAjr, Limited Niagara Falls, Ont.
