Whilst retiring from the duties and responsibilities of Principalship, it is not my intention to cut loose from the College altogether. The new Principal, the Rev. F. L. Farewell, B.A., is a warm personal friend, in whose ability and fit- ness for the position I have the fullest confidence. At his request I have decid- ed to teach a couple of subjects in the College this coming year, so that I expect to be in the College building nearly every day. Whilst I shall miss several mem- bers of the staff with whom I have been so pleasantly associated for several years, , I am pleased to be able to assure all in- coming students that no pains or expense have been spared in filling all vacancies Avith teachers of the highest academic standing, social culture and personal magnetism that will carry the College forward to still greater efficiency and success. I believe that what has been accomplished during my administration of forty-one years is but the beginning of still greater things. There are to-day forces behind and within the College that must bring it still more prominently to the front, and keep it in the white light of public approval and confidence. Be- sides its own real merits in staff, equip- ment, courses of study and palatial build- ings, which must always remain the chief source of its strength, it is worthy of notice that the Trafalgar Daughters, dur- ing the past year, have made themselves felt in the life and working power of the College in a way that was not thought of previously. The banquet that was given in the College a few weeks ago, and that was so largely attended by Trafalgar Daughters, gives some idea of the hearty and loyal support which the College is receiving and will continue to receive from this noble band of students. As I listened to the exceptionally able and elo- quent addresses given by them in re- sponse to the toasts " Woman in Liter- ature, " Woman in Scientific Research, " " Woman in Music, " " Woman in Art, " " Woman in Oratory, " " Woman in Politics, " " Woman in Social Service, " and " Woman in the Home, " and saw one of their number so capably presiding over this interesting function, I felt that a new power had arisen that will play an important part in determining the future developments of the College. Now that the Societies or Chapters have been or- ganized under the control of a central governing Board, and they are about to obtain legal status and representation on REV. J. J. HARE, PH. D. Principal Emeritus. the College Board of Directors, it will be difficult to overestimate what their added influence and help will mean in the life of the school. Their presence at the Com- mencement Exercises and their kind re- membrance of Mrs. Hare and myself in a beautiful case of sterling silver cutlery, besides their gifts for other members of the staff, afford sufficient proof that they recall with pleasure their school days and their teachers, and that when they come to take part in the actual management of vox COLLEGII 3 the College they will become a power for uplift and improvement along all the best lines. I wish also, on behalf of Mrs. Hare and myself, to thank the students of 1915 for the very comfortable chair so kindly do- nated. It will always be a reminder of the genuine good- will which was so man- ifestly shown during the year in word, act, and even song. The time has passed when it was neces- sary to argue in behalf of the solidity and thoroughness of an education to be ob- tained in our College, and yet the guar- antee of efficient instruction does not ad- equately express the real worth and ad- vantage of our courses of study. There is a larger view of education than simply the acquisition of know- ledge or the passing of examinations. If we look intelligently into this many sided subject we shall have to reckon with the thousand and one influences that go to form character that are to be found in a Christian home school where young wo- men at a susceptible period of life are brought under the influence of consecrat- ed men and women who will lift them a- bove their lower selves, inspire them with high ideals, and at the same time shield them from many temptations to which they are likely to be exposed in a prom- iscuous or co-educational school. Our age demands that woman should be edu- cated. Avenues of usefuln ess are open- ing to her on every hand by means of which she can not only make an honest and honorable livelihood, but initiate or direct movements tending to the ma- terial, social and spiritual well-being of her fellow-men, and I am expecting that the strong, cultured and Christian young women that have already gone out from our college halls, and those that will go out in the years to come, will take their full share of resp-onsibility in helping forward every good work in the commu- nity in which they may reside. Mrs. Hare and I expect to reside in Whitby in close proximity to the College, and we shall always be pleased to see any old students that may make us a call. We hope to see a large, number of the stu- dents of this year at the time of re-open- ing, September 8th, and trust that those that cannot return will do all in their power to encourage others to attend. Message from Incoming Principal Eev. F. L. Farewell, B. A. The Rev. Dr. Hare has kindly asked me to write a short message for the Vox. In doing so I am deeply conscious of the high honor the College Board has con- ferred on me in ehosing me as its Prin- cipal for the ensuing year, and also of the heavy responsibility that honor car- ries with it — a responsilDility which I feel all the more keenly because of the great and permanent work done by Dr. Hare in a long and successful leadership of over forty years. It is my desire and hope that the work which he so splendid- ly inaugurated and developed shall con- tinue to grow and enlarge, and that the College more and more shall be a potent force for the cultural training of young women. The education of girlhood and of young womanhood is of growing import- ance. Many see it in a partial solution at least of some of the problems that now confront us. Certainly no one is more worthy of sympathetic understanding and leadership than the adolescent girl. In entering upon this most attractive ser- vice I shall try to bring to it prayer, study, sjT ' mpathy, and wise direction to the end that in some small way at least the young womanhood of Canada may be inspired and blessed. May I ask and hope for the prayerful sympathy and friendly co-operation of the friends and students, the Trafalgar Daughters, and all those who believe in the infinite possibilities of girlhood and womanhood. 4 VOX COLLEGII I am very grateful for the kindly and earnest words of the Principal Emeritus elect, and in heartily reciprocating his friendship and good will, I cordially join F. L, FAREWELL, B. A. his host of friends in wishing him and Mrs. Hare, whose very life is interwoven with the history of the College, many, many years of continued joy and useful- ness. Miss Taylor ' s Message to the Girls of 1915. My Dear Grirls: This year as I am leaving 0. L. C. I want my message to be not only to the graduates, but to all the girls of 1915. There are very many things that might be said, but I am going to limit my re- marks to the subject of good manners, in itself so wide a subject that whole reams could be written on it without exhausting it. The question I want you to ask your- selves is Are the girls of to-day as well- mannered as their mothers or their grandmothers? Are we training to-day ladies of that beautiful old-fashioned courtesy that we seem to associate with lavender and old lace. In this rush and hurry of to-day are we not losing much that has kept life sweet and beautiful ? You know well that not for one minute would I wish to put you back into the en- vironment of your grandmothers. I would not deprive you of your right to come out into the world, and take your place with your brothers in the great battles of life; I would not take from you the great oportunities of higher edu- cation and a broader outlook on life. In- deed I hope you may have the right to Parliamentary Franchise before you die. But remember that loud voiced aggress- iveness is not going to advance the real cause of womanhood in the world. Now good manne rs seem to me to include two distinct ideas — there is something we must acquire to more comfortably and creditably in our own circle. We must eat and dress accordingly to the fixed usages of our particular Society; we must learn to conform to certain rules of etiquette. These, of course, vary with different countries and nationalities. For instance the American custom of using the fork almost entirely at lunch and dinner seems very strange to us EngHsh people who are trained to use knife and fork together. But I want you to go much deeper than mere social usages in your ideas of manners — necessary as a knowledge of these is — I want no mere surface manners only, but I want you to agree with Tennyson that ' ' Manners are not idle, but the fruit of noble natures. ' ' It is the good manners based on a real consideration for the feelings of others that I want you always to cultivate. Re- member all selfish people are really bad- mannered, however much social veneer they may acquire. If you study the feel- ings of others you must learn to lower your voices, to close doors quietly, to move quietly. Shakespeare, in painting one of his most perfect woman charac- ters, Cordelia, says: — " Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low, an excel- lent thing in a woman. " George Eliot gives us what she considers the essential attributes of a lady in describing Nancy vox COLLEGII 5 Lammeter, in the novel of Silas Marner : ' ' Miss Nancy, indeed, had never been to any school higher than Dame Tedman ' s; her acquaintance with profane literature hardly went beyond the rhymes she had worked in her large sampler under the lamb and the shepherdess; and in order to balance an account she was obliged to effect her subtraction by removing vis- ible metallic shillings and sixpences from a visible metallic total. There is hardly a servant maid in these days who is not better informed than Miss Nancy; yet The Incoming We are very sorry not to be able to give the readers of the Vox a message from the incoming Lady Principal. Miss Annie Allison Maxwell, M.A. This was not thought of in time, and as Miss Max- well ' s home is in New Brunswick, it was not possible to secure from her a message for this issue. Miss Maxwell comes to the College from one of the most popular and high-toned Ladies ' Schools in the United States, and is certain to prove a great acquisition to the College staff. she had the essential attributes of a lady — JiigJi veracity, delicate Jionor in lier dealings, deference to others and refined personal habits. " In concladion let me say that I have a very warm feeling for all the girls that I have taught during m_y three years fiere, and shall always be pleased to hear from them. My address will be 657 Spa- dina Ave., Toronto. With all good wish- es for your future happiness, I remain, Yourt. very sincerely, Alice L. Taylor. Lady Principal MISS A. A. MAX YELL, M.A. 6 VOX COLLEGII vox COLI. EGII The Graduates 7 noae HrnutaQe " The man that hath no music in his soul is fit for treason, stratagem and spoils. Mae is the first student we have had from Deseronto, and one of whom we are very proud. She attended the public schools and high schools in Deseronto and also received her musical education there to the Intermediate grade and en- tered our College in 1913 to continue her piano. She also took commercial and and domestic, and now her hard work is over and victory is hers, and we are proud to claim Mae as one of our piano graduates. Mae was elected secretary-treasurer of the musical club, and took much interest in athletics. The best wishes of the class go with Mae, and knowing her capabilities and personality, we do not hesitate to predict a bright future for her, and wish her suc- cess in her undertakings. Pastime — tennis playing. Ambition — to become an M. A. nOilUe Cox " In work, work, work, and work alway, let girlhood ' s hours be passed. " We have known Millie for the last two years, when she has lived at 0. L. C, and we all wish that we knew her better. Millie was born in. Leamington nearly twenty-one years ago, and there she grew and flourished, much against the will of lier doctor. She has been working hard at Domestic Science since arriving here, and we are sure she would make a perfect housekeeper for someone. Pet expression — Oh, you know. Hobby and ambition — Work. IDerba Hrene 2)ap ■ ' ' The little things you do for me, And would not have me know, These keep such music in my heart And make me love you so. And you, who scorn my open thanks, Go singing on your way, Just joyful for two hearts a-tune, Throughout the busy day! " Amy E. Campbell. Verda Day, better known to her inti- mate friends as ' ' Tommy Day, " was born in Toronto, but Hamilton now has the honor of claiming this fai r graduate. Her chosen -department was Domestic Science, and in this she was exceptionally proficient, graduating with a splendid per cent. She has been very industrious during her two years ' sojourn in our midst. Last year, as well as taking her Junior Domestic, took Junior M. E. L., and in spite of illness, did justice to her first year. She was among the fortunate girls who received the bronze medallion for swimming this spring. Her willingness to help her classmates and her quick sympathy for all those who needed it, has given her a high place in all our affections, and we wish her health and happiness wherever her lot may be cast. Pet expression — ' ' You old thing. ' ' Her hobby — Saturday afternoon spree. morma H)ougaU " I love her for her gentle grace, P ' or the pure heart that shines through all; I love her first and best and last Because of her soul ' s loveliness. " ' ' Doc. " was born in Brilliant, Ohio, where she lived in the shelter of her friendly mountains until three years ago, when she graduated from Steubenville High School. The past two years of her life have been spent rushing hither and thither through the corridors of 0. L. C. — generally on some unselfish errand. " Doc. " is always the friend of any- body who is ill or in trouble, and her sunm disposition and comical way of ex- Dresshio; her sentiments, keep all her fel- low students in laughter. She has beem the very capable Presi- dent of the Senior Class of 1915. 8 VOX COLLEail ' ' Doc. " is graduating in Domestic Science, and is never perfectly in her ele- ment unless in Domestic making ' ' cream toast ' ' or helping ' ' Avash the dishes. ' ' She is leaving us this J une, and we do not expect to see her back next year, and of all the girls we feel that ' ' Doc. " will be the most missed, because of her abso- lute unselfishness and her friendliness with everyone. Pet expression — Shades of Nelson. " She ' s one of them things that looks the brightest on a rainy day and loves you the best when you ' re most in need of it. " Lillian was born in St. Mary ' s, but came to us from Athens, Ontario. Dur- ing her two years at 0. L. C, she has been a sincere friend to all of us. She receives the honor of the Nelson Shield because of the splendid work she has done, and because she holds first place in sports. Last year Lillian won the cham- pionship for swimming, and she has proved herself a very efficient teacher in life-saving this year. She graduates in Domestic Science, and her unselfishness and kindness to all her class-mates will never be forgotten. She has written the jokes for the Vox, but, underneath all these jokes, Lillian is tender-hearted, sympathetic, and a true friend to every 0. L. C. girl. We hope for her success in the future and are sure she will find friends wherever she goes, because she is a friend. Hobby — Wandering into the midnight hours. Pet expression — Don ' t look at me. j£ na (Brant " Toiling, rejoicing, sorrowing. Onward through life she goes. Each morning sees some task begun, Each evening sees its close. Something attempted, something done, Has earned a night ' s repose. " Edna was born in Victoria, B. C, in the year 1895, on a beautiful day in July. She is a lady of travel, having seven times crossed the continent. Edna has just triumphantly completed her course in expression, having spent two years with us. Her success reached its height in her wonderful impersonation of the Bishop in " The Bishop ' s Candlesticks, " from " Les Miserables. " Her character has been well revealed in the able manage- ment of the Y. W. C. A. as its worthy President. We hope throughout her life success may continue to attend her. Failing — Systematic habit. Ambition — To be Stage Manager in Shea ' s! (5lat)ip9 (Brecn " How fair she is, how true she is, How dear she is to me. " Plamilton is the proud possessor of an- other graduate from pur College — Miss Gladys Green. Gladys received her first education at Victoria Avenue School, and later graduated from Hamilton Col- legiate Institute. Gladys came to 0. L. C. in 1914, and is one of our M. E. L. stars, receiving the silver medal. Those who come back next year will miss Gladys and her cheerful disposition, but we hope she will visit us often. We all extend to Gladys our best wishes for her abundant success in all her future work. Hobby — To have her German all done. Failing — Being late for classes. Cbaiiotte (BuUiver " All that ' s best of dark and bright, meet in her aspect and her eyes. " Charlotte Gulliver was born in Pick- ering Township, and has spent most of her life in Whitby. She obtained her earlier education in the Whitby Public and High Schools. In 1913 she entered the Ontario Ladies ' College, and has pur- sued a very successful course in com- mercial work, graduating in that depart- ment. vox COLLEGII 9 (5Iat)i?9 Ibart " Wise Virgin! of that lonely number one. " Toronto has sent to us many students, among them Griadys Hart. She received her earlier education at Queen Victoria School, and later received her matricula- tion at Parkdale Collegiate. In 1913 she entered our midst, and at the end of the year was successful in the Home Maker ' s Course of Household Science. She returned the next year, and is one of the happy graduates in M. E. L., dis- tinguishing herself by receiving the gold medal, also passing her intermediate piano. We are proud of ' ' Glad, " and wish she would return next year. But we are sure whether at home or Univer- sity she will be a success. Hobby — Going down to cottage. Failing — Piano teachers. Clela Ibeatb " The morning star of song, Who made her music here below, " From Stirling, Ontario, came this fair girl graduate. Music has always been her greatest aim. She received her first musical education in Sterling, where she passed her intermediate examination, coming to the College in 1912 to pursue her musical studies. She has made a suc- cess of this, graduating in February with honors, and already we hear she has a large class. Clela has worked very faith- fully this year and can boast of many purple cards. Her cheerful disposition has endeared her to her many friends. Clela ' s plans for next year are not defi- nite, but wherever she may go the Senior class wish her the success she deserves. Ambition — To be a piano teacher. Pet phrase — I must get some practise in. Menowae Ibolmee " Her works are beauteous as her face. " Wenowae Holmes came to O.L.C. from Toronto two years ago. She is the only art graduate in our 1915 year, but she is certainly worthy to carry off all honors in that field. We are hoping to hear of Wenowae doing great things and uphold- ing her reputation at 0. L. C. Failing — Teachers in modern lan- guages. Ambition — To be a pianist. flDarQuente Ibomutb " A face with gladness overspread! Soft smiles by human kindness bred. " Wordsworth. Marguerite, our May Queen, first open- ed her eyes one snowy day in February, 1895, in the town of Wingham, Ont. Her life has been one of excitement, but in spite of all she managed to do a fair a- mount of studying at the Wingham pub- lic and High Schools before she came to 0. L. C. Since arriving here four years ago she has been more industrious than ever, and we know she well deserves every honor that comes to her. That every desire of our only vocal graduate will be fulfilled is the wish of all. Who loves her ? Everybody. Ambition — To be the best singer in all the world. Catbanne flDcCormich " Thy life is dear; for all that life can rate Worth name of life in thee hath estimate: Youth, beauty, wisdom, courage, all That happiness and prime can happy call. " Catharine Kezia McCormick, to save breath, known as Kizzie, is a sweet-tem- pered as all of papa McCormick ' s good biscuits and candy could make her. This same fair maiden first opened her big grey eyes in London, Ontario. Kizzie is graduating in Elocution, and receives the degree of M. E. (Mistress of Elocution). She has given several readings at con- certs in London and towns near Whitby, delighting the hearts of all who heard her. ' Another proof of her ability is that she is the winner of the gold medal for her department. Being a favorite with all, she has held many honorable posi- tions, among them: President of the Y. W. C. A., Vice-President of the Dramatic 10 vox COLLEGII Club, Editor of the May Court Club, and first counsellor to the Queen Regent of 1914-15. Hurelia flDcatb " And those about her shall read the per- fect ways of honor. " Buffalo sends us this talented musician, the gold medalist in piano. We were glad to welcome her back to our midst last fall after she had taken a year ' s rest at home. However, we feel, that she has more than made up for lost time in car- rying off one of the highest marks in the Toronto Conservatory of Music. To all ' ' Really " has been a true friend, Sunday evenings especially, when she so very willingly charms us by her music. But it is not by her talent alone that she has won her many friends, but her sweet disposition and willingness to give a help- ing hand wherever possible, has made her one of the most popular members of the Senior class. Favorite expression — ' ' Ah, do you think sor ' Hobby — Late breakfast. Dorotbi? IRormam " Then in one moment she put forth the charm Of woven paces and of waving hands. " Dorothy is one of five or six M. E. L. graduates, and has proved herself an effi- cient scholar in that direction. Coming from Toronto, she has every opportunity to continue her studies. W e hear of her taking a University course next year, and wish her all success. But, don ' t forget your athletic inter- ests, Dorothy. Failings — ' ' 1 " Main and week-ends at home. Hobby— Hats. (BeorQina Smith C ' obbxC ' ) " She needs no eulogy. Her personality speaks. " There are so many ways in which she may be appreciated. In the first place. the ears are delighted with the music her fingers bring forth from the piano, and we feel sure that she is going to make, not only the people of 0. L. C. and her home city, Detroit, Michigan, sit up and take notice, but delight the hearts of mu- sic lovers all over the world. ( Work hard, Bob!) Contrary to the usual person of artis- tic temperament, however, Bobbie is a practical and competent cook. Every- thing she makes is sure to be the best you ever tasted, and . certainly the man who is fortunate enough to win her will never be a bankrupt through lack of her ability to run a house scientifically and economically. (Witness the fact that she was Jibie to provide a clay ' s meals for six people with the small sum of one dollar and thirty-five cents, and with the proper food value, too!). But perhaps the most startling im- pression of all is that which is gained through the eyes. If she is playing ten- nis one admires the swiftness with which she covers the ground, the sparkle of her brown eyes and the red of her cheeks. What matters it if her hair is held up by about one hair pin, and seems in dire danger of precipitating itself in all di- rections ? It is smoothly black when she comes in to her " formal dinner, " and instead of the tennis garb, she is clad in the latest of evening frocks. As she bows to her guests in a gracious and dignified manner, one can hardly realize that this captivating maid with the saucy tilt of the nose and bewitching dimples, is the ' ' baby ' ' of the class — sweet sixteen. Favorite expression — ' ' Eh ! ' ' Hobby — Winning tennis games from Mr. Atkinson. IRora tTucher Nora was born far away from Trafal- gar Castle ' s towers in Saskatoon. Later she came to Toronto and matriculated from Jarvis Street Collegiate there. She continued her musical education at the O. L. C, and this year passed her senior examination in the same with honors. Nobody understood Nora at first, but vox COLLEGII 11 gradually her reserve became only shy- ness and her kindness and honor more apparent. One would hate to name the number of hearts this young lady has broken in her college career ; suffice it to say, that on her arrival here so many old flames sought her attention, Miss Nora was quite cruslied out of sight. She is one of the many attractions of 1 Main. ' mritnnifre Sipmington " Thy heart ' s a diamond, pure and clear, With radiance overflowing. " Dundalk, Ontario, is the home of this blithe spirit who entered our midst in September, 1913. Winnifred took her matriculation in 1914 and came back this year to continue her course. She grad- uated in M.E.L. in spite of many draw- backs, taking music to brighten the path of literary knowledge. She in one of the gay butterflies of the College flitting here and there about the school, always ready to help others, and by her bright face and cheery smile, filling an important niche in our school life. We are g ' ad to know that Winnifred thinks of ret " ■rning next year, and we wish her all kinds of luck in the work she may take up. Failing — Teachers in the art of Elocu- tion. Pet Phrase — ' ' Oh, girls, isn ' t she a dear? " Graduation Exercises The graduation exercises began on Fri- day, June 11th, and continued during a very successful week. On Friday evening, June 11, the Dra- matic Club gave their closing ertertain- ment. Usually the Club studies a Shakes- pearian play, but this year they present- ed three short plays: ' ' How the Story Grew, ' ' a farce by Gleason ; ' ' Holly Tree Inn, " adapted from " The Holly Tree, " by Dickens, and " The Bishop ' s Candle- sticks, ' ' taken from Victor Hugo ' s novel " Les Miserables. " The evening was a great success in every way, and the girls all showed that they had received careful training. Miss O ' Brien ' s last year of teaching at 0. L. C. has surely ended in a tremendous success. All the girls are sorry to part with Miss O ' Brien, but they hope that in any other work she may take up, success will go with her. " How the Story Grew, " is a tale of the village gossips and their remarkable tendency toward exaggeration. The fol- lowing are the characters : Mrs. Brown — Catharine McCormick. Mrs. Green — Mabel McKinnon. Mrs. Bean — Etta Jackson. Mrs. Rice — Melva Heth ' erington. Mrs. Doolittle — Hattie Brouse. Mrs. Snow — Myrtle Fawcett. Mrs. Taylor— Ella Wilson. Mrs. White — Edna Grant. " Holly Tree Inn " is the story of the elopement of little Harry Walmers and his sweetheart Norah. The play con- tained pathos and humor in exactly the right proportions, and took the audience Characters : — Jabez Cobbs, landlord of " Holly Tree Inn " — Morella Buchanan. Captain Walmers, of Walmer ' s Court — Oborne Mullett. Tom, stableman of " Holly Tree Inn " — Melva Hetherington. Harry Walmers, only child of Captain Walmers, Edna Wakefield. Mrs. Cobbs, landlady of " Holly Tree Inn " — Ethel Terry. Betty, chambermaid — Lillian Douglas. Norah, Harry ' s sweetheart — Marjorie Moore. The closing number was ' ' The Bish- op ' s Candlesticks. ' ' It tells of the mar- vellous kindness of the old Bishop to a poor escaped convict who, half -mad with hunger, seeks to steal the silver candle- sticks, the greatest pride and joy of the Bishop ' s heart. The characters were peculiarly suited to the girls who took them. Catharine McCormick, as the con- 12 VOX COLLEGII vict, particularly distinguished herself. Edna Grant made an admirable Bishop, and Myrtle Fawcett, as Persome, the Bishop ' s sister, very cleverly introduced that quality of sisterly devotion. We all wish to thank the Dramatic Club for the very pleasant evening that they gave us. SATURDAY. Saturday was a perfect day for sports, and the events proceeded very much as had been planned. The contest between Reta Tew and Elenore Wilmott for the tennis championship came first, Elenore proving herself the winner after many close games and three close sets. We all enjoyed the final game very much, al- though it was watched under much pro- test. The baseball game between the Reds and the Blacks proved, after four innings, that the Blacks were the victors, the ' ' Mary Score " being 13-8. Dorothy Norman and Mabel Sharpe were the re- spective captains. The class relay " bet- ter late than never " was won by the Seniors. About 7.30 p.m. in the O.L.C. swim- ming tank, seven recently-created medal- lionists lined up to contest for the gold medal awarded by Mr. Blight, and the silver medal awarded by Dr. Hare. The contest ' was judged according to form, and consisted of swimming two lengths of the tank, breast stroke ; swimming on back ; first method of rescue, and the sur- face dive. It was interesting, and the large number who gathered to watch the competition showed their appreciation of the girls work. The judges awarded the first prize to Judith Somers-Cocks, second prize to Dorothy Norman, and third prize to Florence Graham. The contest for best straight diving was won by Eleda Horning, and for the somer- sault by Aileen Wilkins. Amid much cheering the class relay race was won by Lillian Follick ' s class. By request Lil- lian Follick entertained during the con- ference of the judges. The evening end- ed pleasantly with a few wor s from Dr. Hare. Nothing has been said about the ice cream. BACCALAUREATE SERMON By J. Hugh Michael, M.A. Assistant Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Literature, Victoria College. Text.— Revelations 2 : 28. ' ' And I will give him the morning star. " This is the most wonderful promise that has ever been made. There is something al- most staggering about it, and it filb us with wonder and bewilderment. Who has the right to make such a pro- mise ? The Risen Lord has made it, and he is making it all the time, and is ready to fulfil it. To whom is this strange promise made ? Who is Jiimf The person to whom it is made is ' ' he that overcometh. ' ' It does not matter what circumstance made Christ mention this. Every outward struggle is an evidence of the struggle within — endearment, habits, afPections, thoughts, etc. The real battle-field of life is in the heart. The struggle takes differ ent shapes, but it has the same ef- fect. Everyone has struggles, and ev- erything depends upon the outcome of that struggle. If we fail in the moral struggles within, life will be a failure, but if we succeed, our life will be a glor- ious success. John wrote to the seven churches- in Asia. Some were large, some small, some rich, others poor, while some were persecuted and others were unmo- lested. Christ did not make any differ- ence between the classes. He makes the same promise to everyone — to those who conquer in the heart. What is the meaning of this gift ? ' ' I will give him the morning star " ; and it applies just as much to Tier as to Tim. This verse reminds one of the promise Christ made, ' ' I am the bright and morn- ing star, " and if He is the morning star, He must be giving himself to ns. What is there in Christianity? What does it mean? Victory within is the secret of it alb — so simple and easy to understand. We may read books about Christ and Christianity, but we shall never understand what it means until we conquer our own lives. The ' ' morning star " speaks of eternal vox COLLEGII 13 freshness, and the person who conquers evil is always young. If the morning star belongs to us, there will be no end and no old age. If a person conquers within he will always be young. Most people are afraid of getting old, but the text -says he need not get old. It is not the age that counts, but the spirit. Some one asked General Booth how old he was. ' ' How old? ' ' said he, ' ' why, 79 years young, not 79 years old. " Some at the age of 21 or 22, whom we would call young, are far older than General Booth. It is such a sad thing to see a young man or woman who has lost his or her youth. It is a deplorable thing to feel your soul is getting old, to feel that you are getting diseased — crippled. In verses 3 to 5 of the 103rd Psalm, Christ gives promises to the old. God gives youth to do great things. It is so easy to get into a rut, but, He promises that " Thy youth is renewed, like the eagle ' s. ' ' God can make us young again. ' ' Sow in the morn thy seed — and in the eve withhold not thy hand. " It is never too late to sow — God will forgive all. When we think of forgiveness, we think of the things we have failed to do, and expect Christ to blot them out. But that is a poor way to look at it; sins are to- day, not yesterday, and not last week. All the wrong things done in the past -are in us now» but when He forgives He makes tis all new, and gives us a promise of eternal freshness. The possession of the morning star is a pledge of immortality. One of the best things that Christ can give us is, faith in the future. Do we believe in the fu- ture — what do we think about it? The morning star is a herald of to-day. When we feel life in our own hearts we can ' t believe that after death there is nothing else. We should not be satisfied until we are able to look beyond to the life that comes. We must possess the morning star to be fit for service. War has given us a different view of things. The greatest thing in human life is service, and we look upon our soldiers as true servants of God. We will be far more happy if we keep or give to others. Why do we worry about things that perish? What does anything matter if we are useful? We must have the morning star to be useful. How can we hope to help or teach others if we do not have the star ourselves. We must have it; we must conquer our own hearts. An imperfect tree cannot bear good fruit. How can the blind lead the blind? How can we lead without the light in our own hearts ? Day school teaching is just as sacred as preaching; but to do it right the teach- er should conquer her own heart. There is a promise — ' ' He who conquers should be arrayed in white garments. " When we conquer our hearts become white, pure and holy. W. L, Watkinson had a soldier friend who told him that the secret of accurate shooting was a clean rifle barrel. This is a splendid parable of every day life. A teacher is anxious to teach well, but does not lead pupils to Christ. Her aim is good, but the effect is not as fruitful as it ought to be. There must be some- thing wrong, some unclean thought does the damage. Ministers prepare sermons with care, but sinners are not saved — there must be an impure thought hinder- ing the progress. To be really helpful, the heart must be clean and sweet. " For their sakes I sanctify myself " — for the sake of the people about. Nearly everyone has a besetting sin, and it is so difficult to conquer it. The man who overcomes may sit on the throne. We stand absolutely alone at this time; father, mother or preacher cannot help us. We must do it; our will must exert itself. It may mean a great deal ; it may mean sacrificing some- thing very important, home, career, — everything. But it must be done — the price must be paid. Even if a person has a good education, or a high or noble position, he will get old, if he does not conquer his own heart. Christianity was born in the moral struggle of Jesus Christ. We may know the Bible from cover to cover, go to church every Sunday, but unless we make the heart pure, we are not Christ- ians. 14 VOX COLLEGII There is nothing we admire so much as heroism, but we must not flinch from our moral duty. See to it that Christ is real and true — but let no evil remain. Myrtle E. W. Fawcett, (Jr.) . UNDERGRADUATES ' CONCERT. On Monday, June 13, the recital given by the undergraduates took place in the concert hall. The program was as fol- lows : " Wishes " - - Sans Souci Miss Minnie Trenouth. " A la bien aimee " - Schutt Miss Gladys Hart. " I love you " - Thompson Miss Gladys Morris. " Mavis " - - Craxton Miss Catharine Breithaupt. " Ballade in A flat " - - Chopin Miss Georgina Smith. Sweet Rhodoclea " - Lehmann Miss Ada Eby. " The Legend of Qu ' Appelle Valley " Pauline Johnson Miss Oborne Mullett, (a) " Love ' s Whisper " - Willehy (b) " The Chrysanthemum " - Salter Miss Marjorie Garlock. " Concerto in G minor " (last two movements) Mendelssohn Miss Mabel Sharpe. (Orchestral accompaniment on second piano) Miss Aurelia Meath. All who have ever heard any of these ' Undergrads " perform will know how very delightful an evening it was. TUESDAY. The Senior Concert. A week of good times ; and this is just one of the best. Everybody expects an excellent program from the Seniors, and no one is disappointed. At 8 o ' clock the division met on Main Hall and filed down to the concert hall, happily expectant. There were a few moments of whispers and creaking of chairs, then the concert began by an instrumental by Miss Mae Armitage. Mae is a quiet little person, but very faithful and obliging ; because of which, and because of real talent too, everybody enjoyed her number. Miss Marguerite Homuth sang quite beautifully ' ' My Heart at Thy Voice. " Her music gives pleasure, but not an or- dinary pleasure ; rather a deep and stir- ring sense of the beauty of sound that lingers for a long, long time. We are glad that Clela Heath is so much at home with us here after being away so long. Her brilliant rendering of ' ' Fantasie Impromptu " (Chopin) was enjoyed im- mensely. Kizzie McCormick ' s talent is very evident, and her reading of ' ' The Mouse Trap, " by " William Dean How- ells, was certainly well done. The aud- ience was hers to the very last word. Miss Nora Tucker ' s substitute, Miss Mahel Sharpe, and Miss Aurelia Meath gave " Concerto in G minor " (Mendelssohn), Miss Meath playing the orchestral accom- paniment on the second piano. We heard it before, but the good things of life are always the better of repetition. Miss Homuth gave " Damon, " by Strange, and charmed everyone into silence. Edna Grant then gave a reading, " Across the Border. " It has been written quite re- cently by " Dix, " and is especially in- teresting because of the war. It was a vivid word picture of the horror of war, and impressed everyone. Her encore was not funny till the last, but at the last the humor came all on at once and in a big lump. Aurelia Meath closed the programme by " Ballade, " by Reinecke, and finally " God Save the King. " By 10 o ' clock the concert was over and the hall dark and empty. Someone made a solitary journey down again after a forgotten article. The chairs loomed darkly against the light, and the place was very still, but yet an echo of a sweet voice linger- ed in the room, and the scent of girl- flowers moved and stirred. M. M. M. CLASS DAY. Wednesday, June 16, was Class Day — a day devoted to the special exercises of the Senior Class. The grads. walked out across the lawn with the long daisy chain on their shoulders, singing one of their class songs, and, as each girl mounted the platform and received her share of vox COLLEGII 15 the Juniors ' gift, the prophecy of what she would be doing ten years from 1915 was read by Oborne Mullett. Following this came the Senior Class poem, by Lil- lian FoUick, the Biographies of the class read by Georgina Smith and Catharine McCormick,- and the Last Will and Test- ament read by Norma Dougall. The af- ternoon exercises closed with the singing of the other Senior song, the gift of the Juniors. At six o ' clock, the Juniors en- tertained the grads. at a royal feast in the Domestic Science. The room and tables were decorated in the Junior col- ors, purple and gold, and the menu car- ried out this color scheme. MENU. Orange Cocktail Bread Rolls Carrot Soup Croutons Roast Chicken Potato Roses Creamed Asparagus Banana Salad Cucumber Sandwiches Ice Cream Orange Cake Strawberries Cafe au Lait Bonbons Salted Almonds This was followed by a number of toasts, which were all proposed in a de- lightful manner by the Juniors and as delightfully answered by the Seniors. TOASTS. ' ' To the Seniors, " proposed by Myrtle Fawcett and answered by Norma Dou- gall. ' ' To Our Alma Mater, " proposed by Katharine Breithaupt, and answered by Edna Grant. " To the Faculty, ' ' proposed by Hattie Brouse and answered by Miss Pascoe. " To the King, " proposed by Bleda Horning and answered by Catharine Mc- Cormick. ' ' To the Juniors, ' ' proposed by Norma Dougall and seconded joyfully by the whole body of Seniors. The Seniors wish to thank the Juniors most sincerely for all their kindness dur- ing the year, and especially for this final expression of good will. For the Juniors are jolly good fellows, The Juniors are jolly good fellows, The Juniors are jolly good fellows. This no Senior will deny. At half -past eight came the great bon- fire on the lawn, when each graduate threw into the flames the book which had caused her the most worry during the year, together with a verse appropriate- ly expressing her hatred of the despised object. This was followed by class songs and old-fashioned games, and then every- one joined hands in a circle about the smouldering embers of Dietetics, Geome- try and Perfective Laws, and sang with hearty good will Should auld acquaintance be forgot In the days of auld lang syne. CLASS PEOPHECY. Our Class in 1925. Who had imagined the changes that ten years had brought to us! Contrary to all expectations we see that the Do- mestic Science girls are all unmarried, while all the rest reign in a home of their own. Although Doc. Dougall, our president, never tried her examinations and acquired her M. D., she is doing wonderful work among the poor in Ohio ' s large cities, employing her time diligently in the slums. Millie Cox writes articles on " House- keeping and Homemaking " for all the leading papers. Verda Day is very successful in con- ducting picnics, making an exceedingly popular chaperone; one who can always plan a most interesting entertainment. Lillian FoUick makes quite a fortune painting placecards — making a specialty of cats and cows. Bobby Smith is very popular for draw- ing-room recitals, and usually makes twenty -five dollars an evening. In this way she is also able to see something of the social life which had always been so dear to her. Every other member of the class is married. Mae Armitage found a million- aire, and lives a very enjoyable life with nothing to do. After a University training and wide experience, Gladys Green obtained a chair in the B. C. University where she 16 VOX COLLEGII married one of her cleverest students. Edna Grant is a strict but kind mis- sionary, spending these last years on for- eign fields. Wenowae Holmes is a distinguished R. A., known the world over. Her portfolios show many water color sketches of views seen on her extensive travels. Gladys Hart is the able leader of a col- umn in the ' ' Globe ' ' entitled, ' ' How can I run my home more easily. " After a few years training Marguerite becomes a grand opera singer, and sand- wiches concert tours between seasons. Three years ago she fell in love with her accompanist, whom she married imme- diately. While abroad studying music Clela Heath married, and then continued teaching piano, in order to keep the fam- ily together. We have obtained the vote chiefly through Kizzie McCormick ' s efforts as lecturer. Aurelia Meath became a distinguished pianist, married a successful violinist, and they have made several successful tours. Winnifred Symington is a popular lec- turer cn ' ' How to keep the home to- gether. ' ' After five years training at Osgoode, where she did credit to her Alma Mater, Dorothy Norman was admitted to the bar, where success has crowned every effort. Nora Tucker is an organist in one of the largest churches in Whitby, and has married the bass soloist. CLASS WILL. We, the Graduating Class of 1915, hereby, in our last will and testament, bequeath our goods and chattels to the following persons: To The Seniors of Next Year. Firstly. — Our precious privileges, in- cluding walking, shopping, being lazy Sunday nights, and shoving people to bed in the hall teacher ' s absence. Secondly. — To those that have some degree of courage we leave unto them, ours, that they may be able, with a serene and placid countenance to fully use such places as Tod ' s, Mathison ' s, the Tea Room and Restaurant to best advantage. Thirdly. — We leave them each five pounds of best quality, chocolate coated, special Senior Dignity, whereby they may fill the souls of the less fortunate mortals with envy. To our prospective friends, the ' freshies " of the coming year, we leave: Firstly. — The time-honored, illus- trious, magnificent custom of the Pow- Wow, together with the friendly warn- ing to save their wordly wealth, so that they may have the necessary sum of fifty- cents wherewith to pay indemnity for said pow-wow. Secondly. — We leave those strange thrills and emotions of which we were the proud possessors on our first entrance to the College. Thirdly. — We leave that exhilarating excitement to be paid in full the first time they are apprehended in some dire deed of darkness. To adventurous spirits we leave : Firstly. — The attending of midnight feeds — their instigation and execution. Secondly. — The secret passages. Thirdly. — The exploration of the cel- lar after fourth warning. This is our last will and testament, witnessed by Hon. Afternoon Sun, Sir Fresh Air. (Signed) Seniors of 1915. SENIOR CLASS POEM. Turrets rising high into the blue, Gray stone that stretches broad across the green, Long walks in stately lines of trees. Sunshine and shadow in a dazzling sheen; Memories of years that cling with moss and ivy, Ghosts of their white-robed graduates, Ambition, inspiration, all that is born. Within the weather-beaten College gates. vox COLLEGII 17 Girls that have left us in the years gone by, Girls that are leaving us to-day, Remember these — the memories of school, When you are gone away; And in the school of life where we soon must learn Lessons full of pain and ceaseless care, Lessons— we pray the Teacher of us all Shall give us grace to bear. VALEDICTORY. The members of the Graduating Class of 1915 to-night pay their farev ell to the College which has been their home for the , last two years. Looking over those two years we cannot help remem- bering all the joys and sorrows they have held for us — the joys of the companion- ships of the students, of the friendly in- terest of the Faculty, the sorrows of parting with our school friends, many of vvhom we may Ur er see again. What has this year done for us, how has it helped to broaden our lives? It is not always the big things that have done most to build up our characters, it is the daily intercourse with our fellow- students, the exercising of sympathy, kindness and unselfish service. The spirit that our College is introducing in- to our midst is that of helpfulness. Here we learn one of the great lessons of life, — thoughtfulness for the comfort of oth- ers and elimination of self. We learn other lessons, too, — that the acquiring of mere literary knowledge is a matter of secondary importance, that it is the for- mation of character that really counts. Here, in our little College world, the daily routine goes on, pre paring us for that larger life that we ente upon to- night. Have we all derived as much benefit from this life as we might; have we reached a higher, nobler plane than we stood upon at the beginning of the year? Like the nautilus, have we been enlarging our lives each day with the things that matter most in life? This is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign. Sails the unshadowed main, — The venturous bark that flings On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings In gulfs enchanted, when the siren sings. And coral reefs lie bare. Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair. Its webs of living gauze no more unfurl; Wrecked is the ship of pearl! And every chambered cell, Where its dim dreaming life was wont to dwell, As the frail tenant shaped his growing shell, Before thee lies revealed — Its irised ceiling rent, its sunless crypt un- sealed! Year after year beheld the silent toil That spread his lustrous coil; Still as the spiral grew, He left the past year ' s dwelling for the new, Stole with soft step its shining archway through. Built up its idle door. Stretched in his last-found home, and knew the old no more. Thanks for the heavenly message brought by thee, Child of the wandering sea, Cast from her lap, forlorn! From thy dead lips a clearer note is born Than ever Triton blew from wreathed horn! While on mine ear it rings, Through the deep caves of thought I hear a voice that sings: — Build thee more stately mansions, 0, my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last. Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life ' s un- resting sea! We came to- the Ontario Ladies ' Col- lege to seek Athena ' s gift of knowledge, but we have found a vast treasure of those things which have been of infinitely greater value to us. On the other hand, what have we done to uphold the honor of the College? We have all intended to put her dignity first, our own inclina- tions second, however we may have failed or succeeded. And we all say with heart- felt gratitude, ' ' Vive: la 0. L. C. " May she long continue to prosper and radiate the spirit of loving service. To the members of the Board of Di- rectors, who have done so much to build up the standard and the fortunes of our beloved College, we wish to say that we are truly grateful, and that it is our earnest wish that 0. L. C. may attain the brilliant future that you have plan- ned for her. 18 VOX COLLEGII Dr Hare and members of the Faculty ; To you we owe much of the view of life and its responsibilities which we have acquired during the past year. By your patience and unfailing helpfulness, and, above all, by your earnest example, you have shown us the way to live for the bet- terment of others. I can only say that we deeply appreciate all you have done for us. As the representative of the Graduating Class of 1915, 1 bid you fare- well, hoping that you will always remem- ber us with as kindly feelings as we shall remember you. To the Uundergraduates : In the year that is to come, you will take our places as the Senior Class, not as the class of 1915, but as a class which will as loyally uphold the interests and traditions of the College as we have tried to do. Fellow members of the Graduating Class: This is one of those times when farewell seems, of all words, the one most fraught with sadness. It may be that, at some happy Commencement Day in the future, we shall have a great re-un- ion as our Trafalgar Daughters have had this year, but only in mere name, shall we ever again be the class of 1915. Some will be far away, and the feeling of unity and companionship passes away with this evening. We have been held together by unbreakable fetters of loyal- ty and friendly interest ; we have formed life-long friendships which are based upon all that is highest in our characters. Nor shall we ever forget each other, for memory will often paint for us in those warm colors which are eternal pictures of our days here together and of the Col- lege which will always hold for us the undying interest of a loved home. But we must forsake thee, our own, our sheltering home, But we will ne ' er forget thee, wherever we may roam; In years to come the memory deep in our hearts shall dwell. Farewell to thee! Farewell!

The Principal Retires An Appreciation of His The following particulars relating to the honors won by Dr. Hare in his Uni- versity course have been obtained from the Methodist ' ' Who ' s Who. " He won first prize for honor Metaphysics, first prize for Scripture History, first prize for Hebrew, Scholarship for highest standing in the Sophomore year, and dur- ing his senior year first prize for ability Work by an Observer. in debate. This latter prize f orshadowed the readiness of utterance which has been characteristic of him during his entire career. Other particulars may be obtained from the same source and from the His- tory of Ontario, relating to the phen- omenal growth of the College during his administration. 20 VOX COLLEGII At the close of the present term the Ontario Ladies ' College will lose the emi- nent services of its esteemed founder and President, the Rev. J. J. Hare, M.A. Ph. D., after a period of service of forty- one years. Seldom has it been permitted to an} man engaged in educational work to see the school under his charge grow from such small beginnings, through years each laden with greater successes than the last, to a culmination which leaves it almost without a rival in its own particular area of usefulness upon the American Continent. At the outset the school opened with only twenty-eight pupils in attendance; it now, notwithstanding war conditions, displays a roll of 155 students en- gaged in the pursuit of every branch of learning and of every domestic accomp- lishment which is recognized as a neces- sary part of the equipment of the culti vated woman of to-day. For information as to the details of the phenomenal growth of the college the reader is referred to selections from the History of Ontario and the MetJiodist WJio s Who. Our concern is more imme- diately with the man whose untiring en- ergy and extraordinary talents for or- ganization have made this expansion pos- sible. Dr. Hare was born in the County of Carleton some sixty-eight years ago. He began his life ' s work as a teacher in one of the public schools of his native County, afterwards engaging in the work of the Methodist ministry, to which he devoted some three or four years. " Whilst engaged in this work he foresaw the great possibilities for usefulness of an Institu- tion of Learning conducted under the auspices of the church to whose service he had consecrated his life, and it was not long before the opportunity came. In the year 1874 he was appointed prin cipal of the Whitby Ladies ' College, which from that day to the time of writ- ing has had a career of uninterrupted success. There have doubtless been times of difficulty and even perhaps of crisis in the history of the College, but, if so, they were known only to the man whose iron will, indomitable courage, and dauntless determination met and master- ed every stroke of adverse fortune with tact and sagacity and a smiling counteii- ance ; and this brings us to say that not to be overlooked in the estimate of this prominent educator ' s far reaching in- fluence is an affable and attractive per- sonality which disarms opposition. No one who has ever met the genial president can forget his hearty hand- shake, his tone of intimate and flattering cordiality or that commanding presence and deep vibrating voice which, along with his learning, and eloquence, have given him a high place among the men who grace the pulpit or the lecture plat- form. Dr. Hare has created a great institu- tion of learning. He holds the highest place in the reverent affection of those who have been his disciples. He has made for himself hosts of friends. He has been a living and active power for righteousness in the community and the state. He is one of the few men whose career contradicts the saying of the Greek sage that ' ' no man can be pro- nounced happy before his death, ' ' for of him it may fairly be said that he has lived long enough to see the accomplish- ment of all his ambitions and the realiza- tions of all his hopes. Good-Bye The bus rattles up to the College gates, and we turn for a last look at the build- ing in which we have lived for a year of days. A year that has brought new friend- ships, new culture, new experience into our lives ; that is what College means to us. The halls are empty and the rooms bare and cold, and part of our youth is over. Deserted ! every footstep echoes eerily down the long dark passage, and the shadows chase each other into the corn- ers. A silk fluff of ribbon lies on the vox COLLEGIi 2i floor — torn from the wearer in some gay scramble. The rain drops beat upon the panes, and the sound is sadder than the stillness of empty rooms. Cheer up ! It is spring ; and apple-blos- soms send their petals down like sweet rain ; and robins lilt a gay good-morning across the green; and the sky is very blue, the world is very green — so, let us be happy. Happy to live! Happy to be here! To see, to feel, to laugh! There is May Day Probably, no other day in the year is as eagerly anticipated and as happily spent by the girls of 0. L. C. as the ' ' Twenty-fourth. ' ' That the day may be bright is always the wish of every girl, and this year it was abundantly fulfilled. Shortly after ten o ' clock the girls as- sembled in the concert hall eager to hear the address of the day by the Kev. Dr. Johnson, of Victoria College, Toronto, on ' ' The Ideal Woman. " Mr. Hutchison occupied the chair, and in a few fitting words introduced the speaker. Dr. John- son said he would not stop to enumerate all the qualities necessary in an ideal wo- man, as that was something we must all do for ourselves, but he showed us how higher education in the hands of a wo- man, possessing ideal qualities, makes her life broader, deeper and sweeter. His address along the subject of ' ' Higher Education in developing the ideal wo- man ' ' was especially appropriate for the girls of 0. L. C, who all are enjoying something of the privileges of higher ed- ucation. Dr. Johnson was much enjoy- ed by all, and his personality added much to the splendid address. After a vote of thanks had been given the speaker, the ballots were handed a- round aiid voting begun. Marguerite Homuth was chosen as our May Queen, and her counsellors were Myrtle Patrick, and Gertrude lanson. The Nelson shield was not voted for, as the time was al- ready late, and Dr. Hare decided that it could be done some time before com- mencement. sorrow not ours — tears bitterer than death, smiles sadder than tears; laughs harder than sudden pain. But we may laugh — when we are young and the world ' s a pretty place to live in. Laugh — you that have youth! Laugh — you that have childhood ! Laugh — you that have old age, for you have a mem- ory of these ! Margery. Exercises The girls made a pretty picture in their white middy suits as they formed in two long lines and waited for the ap- pearance of the Queen of the May. She looked very queenly as she descended the main steps, and, followed by her Court, came slowly across the lawn. She was met by Mrs. Johnston, who, in a few suitable words, placed the exceedingly pretty crown on her head. She walked slowly between the two rows (the girls kneeling as she passed) and ascended her throne, where she was able to watch the Military Drill, Folk Dance and May Pole, as each in turn was skillfully executed by the girls. Dinner followed the celebration on the lawn, and shortly before three o ' clock the hay racks appeared. It did not take long for everyone to find a place, and so we were off to the lake rather earlier than usual. The hay rack ride is voted by many as the very nicest part of the pic- nic, which is always looked forward to by all, and if we did not think so before, we were left without a doubt after seeing the happy faces of the girls as they sang songs and gave College yells. But a pic- nic is not a picnic without the baskets and their contents, and after strolling along the shore at Corbett ' s Point for a time, we were called by the Seniors, who served sandwiches, cake, coffee and fruit. The ride home was so delightful that we were very reluctant to leave the racks, but like all good things, it had to end. The usual display of fireworks was re- placed this year by a " look at the moon " 22 VOX COLLEGII The IMay Queen of 10)5, her C( ' uiisellois ami Pages.

The exceedingly happy day came to a close after we had listened, for a short Junior The poster on the board was certainly alluring, for everybody went, and every- body gave a little hum of delight as they got a program — such a dear little booklet and sealed with purple and gold, the Junior colors. ' ' The Modern Shakespeare play " was amusing, to say the least, and the fer- ocious aspect of Evelyn White as ' ' Shy- lock " was nothing short of startling. ' ' Portia, ' ' in the person of Edna Wake- field, dispensed a slangy but correct just- ice, and the court kept very good order. The other players: Boo Barrett, Mary Score, Lillian Douglas, Kay Breith- aupt ' Katie Oke, Freda Pennal and Marie Valentine took the parts of the ' " Duke, " " Salarino, " " Salanio, " " An- tonio, " " Nerissa, " " Gratiano, " and ' Bassanio, " ' respectively; and took them well. The whole play was a clever idea on the part of Boo, Edna and Chud. They certainly worked hard, and had their reward in success. For that matter, although Chud firmly refused a part, she took a very important part in work- ing up the whole concert. " In Boogy Land, " was a pretty little tableau of a nursery — tiger rug on the floor and three pajamas-ed children with the usual number of picture books and teddy bears. The nurse, Jean Willis, on being asked for a song, gives ' ' Boogy Land, ' ' with such realism that the child- ren become frightened. During the chorus, the boogy man, himself — a wierd figure in long pointed cap and baggy trousers, dances into the scene. Edna Wakefield as the Boogy Man was queer enough to really produce a thrill of fear. The children ' s parts, taken by Margery Moore, Mary Score and Gertrude Ian- time, to our new May Queen and others as they kindly sang for us in the drawing room. Shortly after the usual time, we found our own rooms, and, although tired, felt we had come ' ' to the end of a perfect day. " Mary E. Valentine. Concert son, were well done, and Barcus ' terror was very real — she was the " littlest one. ' ' " Sowing Seeds in Danny, " a little play in two scenes, was dramatized from the first three chapters of the book, by Margery Moore. The first scene was Mrs. Watson ' s kitchen, the family waiting for the mother ' s return from a hard day ' s washing at Mrs. Francis ' home. When she arrives she tells Danny that Mrs. Francis, the pink lady of his dreams, has invited him to make her a visit on the morrow. The visit is made in scene II. Of course the star was " Danny, " a lit- tle boy in print bloomers and a jersey, a person with whom everybody fell in love. Gertrude lanson made " Danny " as pop- alar as the original character. Pearlie, (Oborne Mullett) was a nice big sister — everybody knows Pearlie. The boys, Bugsey and Patsey (M. Score and M. Hetherington) acted — boyishly, of course; and Mary (Midgie Moore) set the table -with very real care, not to speak of some dozen porridge plates and a pitcher. The sitting-room of " Mrs. Francis " was very pretty, and so was its owner, " the pink lady, " Myrtle Fawcett, in a lovely pink gown, doing fancy work un- der a shaded reading lamp, and occasion- ally helping herself to a chocolate from a near-by box, was the picture of ease and comfort. But though her ignorant views of childhood were rather flowery and ridi- culous, everyone was glad when the pink ladv awoke to a sense of the dearness of " Danny, " and promised " the big par- cel. " " Camilla, " (and a very trim Camilla vox COLLEG II was Lilian Douglas), announced supper just here, and ' ' Danny ' s " eager " Come on! " closed the play. Myrtle Fawcett and Chud Hull were again the makers of this play, and every- body felt that their efforts were not in vain. Patriotic The 0. L. C. organization has worked very steadily all this year. Our thanks are due especially to the Dramatic Class, for it is by their presentation of plays that we have raised a very substantial part of our funds, but money has been generously given by practically every- one in the building. So far we have sent $90 to the Red Cross, $70 to the Belgium Relief Fund. We expect this week, after all outstand- " The Patriotic Song " by eight girls with funny little red caps on one ear, and led by little Frances Campbell, was a " howling " success. The proceeds of the evening were ten dollars and fifty cents. (M. M. M.) Society ing accounts are paid, to send the Red Cross a further donation of $60. We have also sent off: 70 knitted scarves, 15 knitted belts, 3 dozen woven belts, 1 helmet. 8 pairs wristlets, 4 pairs socks. 16 dozen bandages. Alice L. Taylor. Dr. Hughes ' Poem The following beautiful College song has been composed by Dr. Jas. L. Hughes of Toronto, and it is hoped that some Trafalgar Daughter or some musical friend of the College may provide the tune. Hail O. L. C! Dear O. L. C! We proudly think of you; Trafalgar Daughters ' hearts will be To you forever true. Chorus : Trafalgar Daughters, O. L. C, Throughout their lives will ever be More strong, more wise, more true, more free, Because of you, dear O. L. C. The knowledge of the past you teach. And higher wisdom, too. Revealing grander heights to reach, And vision ever new. Our hope will ever be more bright, Our duty be more clear. Because the pure, the true, the right, You taught us to revere. The lessons learned, the games we played, The loving friends we met. The plans for nobler lives we made We never shall forget. May 24, Picnic Day at O. L. C. Far from this tree-crowned hill top Visions of growth I see; Green blades of hope on wheat field! Green leaves of joy on tree! Glory of bloom full orchards! Life bursting forth anew! Music of wind and song bird! Sunshine on lake so blue. Deep in my heart the glory Lights up my truest life, Driving away the shadows. Healing the scars of strife. Starting in Life ' s great garden Bloom on the sweetest flowers; Sowing in Life ' s wide wheat fields Seeds of my highest powers. James L. Hughes. vox COLLEGII 25 Music Owing to the rush of the last few weeks, the Musical Club recitals have not been held as regularly. Mr. Atkinson has been spending more of his time with in- dividual pupils, particularly those pre- paring for the June examinations. However, we have had two informal recitals. One was held in the drawing- room, Tuesday, May 18. Misses Mar- guerite Homuth, Annie Tuttle, Marjorie Garlock assisted with the program. At the close Mr. Atkinson gave his usual war summary, in which we were very much interested. Last Wednesday evening, June 9th, we had a most enjoyable time. It was the last night we met together, so we spent the evening playing games. A number of the girls enjoyed an air-ship ride, and they certainly made a desperate leap when they struck the ceiling. As a slight token of appreciation of the interest which Mr. Atkinson has taken in the Musical Club this year, the class presented him with a fountain pen. He has been most generous with his time and his kindly interest in our progress. The teachers and honorary members were present. Ice cream, strawberries, cake and chocolates followed, and it was quite late when we broke up our party, but we left in good spirits, having spent a very delightful evening. The music examinations were held on Friday, June 4th. The Senior girls did well, as we expected they would, after all the hard work they had done. The gold medal for -piano was won by Miss Aurelia Meath, and we all think she de- served it. Congratulations! ' ' Eeally. ' Miss Marguerite Homuth did wonder- fully well, and carries off the gold medal in vocal. We hardly expected so much from her with only two years ' work, but we have some idea now what she can do, and we hope she will have as great suc- cess in everything she undertakes as she had here at 0. L. C. Invitations were issued for a piano re- cital on Thursday evening, June 10th, given by the pupils of Miss Kate Wright. Miss Wright ' s friends from town turn- ed out in goodly numbers, and at eight o ' clock a long procession of college girls entered the concert hall. The evening was successful in every way, and we are sorry to know that this will probably be the last of Miss Wright ' s very pleasant entertainments at the College, since she is leaving our midst this year. It is with deep regret that we part from Miss Wright, but we hope that the future will hold for her a very large store of success and happiness. Miss Ada Kichardson, a former graduate of the College, assisted by two vocal numbers, and little Helena Richardson, from the town, presented the basket of Richmond Roses and ferns which was intended to show the gratitude and affection that all Miss Wright ' s pu- pils feel for her.

Miss Mar- jorie Ross, Miss Morella Buchanan. (3nce again the final reckoning time has come. What have we to show as proof that our time in the studio has not been spent merely as a recreation from other more tedious studies? At least there has been one person to whom " Art " has been all in all this year — Miss Wenowae Holmes, who has se- cured the diploma for the course in China Painting and Design. For three years there have been no graduates in Fine Art Courses, so we are justly proud of Wenowae ' s courage in carrying her course through to a successful finish. Although conventional designing and a knowledge of color, together with the act- ual decorating of the china, seem to con- stitute essentials of this course, there must be a good grounding in freehand drawing or color work in either oils or water color. Last year Miss Holmes ob- tained Mr. Manley ' s award for highest standing in China Painting, and this year has certainly fulfilled last year ' s promise. Judging the exhibit of this department as a whole we would say that the aim has been daintiness of design and color for table pieces, and harmony of both de- sign and color for the purely decorative pieces. The drawing, oil and water color ex- hibit was not as large as usual, because, of course, the size of our class has been, like many other things, affected by the war. But this has had nothing to do with the quality of work shown, compar- ed with the first work of the year, a clear advance has been made in stronger draw- ing and cleaner color. But we hope there has been accomp- lished what is more important than things seen ; that greater appreciation of the truly beautiful, that keener, broader and more sympathetic view of life, that turning away from the merely ma- terial to the high culture of heart and mind toward which we believe the study cf the eitH tends. THE ART STUDENT IN CANADA. The student of art in Canada has both advantages and disadvantages in the way to assist and retard the progress in art. In the line of disadvantages there is the lack of fine museums housing good ex- amples of art to stimulate and control the usually rather wild and impractical ideas of the young art student. A mus- eum such as the South Kensington col- lection is full of suggestion and encour- agement. The examples of so many dif- ferent arts, comprising as it does fine paintings, statuary, stained glass, mos- aics, wood carving, porcelain, and beauti- ful medallion and metal work are very inspiring. The benefit of fine art galler- ies and museums may hardly be over- estimated, and gradually this defect is being remedied in Canada. On the other hand, nature and out- door life in this country are, to most of us, more accessible than to the European art student. Between the fine art museum on the vox COLLEGII 27 one hand and the easy access to open air and nature study on the other, the latter is vastly to be preferred in the formation of an original and native art. The museum student has a great tend- ency to be overawed by the many excel- lent examples of art that confront him or lier on every side, and to take refuge in the rather easy way of copying and ad- apting from others, instead of going out to nature and boldly attacking the prob- lem at first hand as the best artists have always done, and by gradually develop- ing the ability to dream and design with natural objects as themes, a more per- sonal and individual style is developed, and the studies and sketches made in this way are usually more interesting. Flowers and plant forms are excellent subjects for sketches, and almost insensi- bly the student learns to design and to dream accurately. Animals are usually considered more difficult, as they are liable to move, but this very liability of movement and ob- serving the change of form which takes place are very educative. It requires patience to begin all over again every few minutes, but in this way the value of the essentials of structure are brought home to the student, and the power of quickly seizing the main thing is grad- ually acquired. The lead pencil is a most valuable medium for this kind of study as it is so handy with a sketch pad or note book, in which also written notes are useful to assist the memory in refer- ence. Eemarks may be made in such a book on the weather, the season, the time of day, the color of objects and general ' observations on the complex things which a beginner finds difficulty in represent- ing pictorially. These notes of themsel- ves after a while will constitute a diary of great interest and suggestion to the future composure of pictures or orna- mental designs, and even if such are never used practically, they will form in- dividual chapters in your life which will be afterwards prized merely as records. Many a person who finds life in the coun- try to be dull and uninteresting, will in this way open many new channels of en- joyment, practical improvement through the knowledge of nature, animate and in- animate, that is thus acquired. For the student of botany this use of a note book is almost essential, and for the art student it is no less so. Although a good sketch is always to be preferred to a merely written description in this case. To take the place of the art museum we have to-day the phot ographic repro- ductions which are so easily obtainable, and a good scrap book in which maga- zine and newspaper pictures may be pasted, nicely arranged and classified, is also an excellent idea for the young art student, only care must be exercised to have only good work represented. The student must not despise the fam- iliar and native things which surround him or her. These are, in fact, the very best things to draw or to " paint, and for- tunately in Canada there are many of sig- nificance, many plants and. animals and birds, domestic and wild, which furnish excellent motives for sketches and de- signs. The very scare-crow in the gar- den is picturesque and worthy of note. The familiar cabbage and pumpkin make excellent subjects, while the horse, cow, dog, cat and canary in the cage are all interesting. During the summer vacation in the country all these things- are about, and the habit of carrying a pencil and note book will be found a ready and conven- ient way of recording the facts of nature, a knowledge of which is the best equip- ment of an artist, always suggestive and inspiring new themes for pictures and designs.

A — Our Cabinet this year was especially fortunate in having Dr. Retta Kilborn, from Chentu, China, to address the Y. W. on Sunday, May 23rd. To the old girls Mrs. Kilborn was an old friend, and they w ere all so glad to have her back at the College again, and it did not take long for the girls of this year to get to know Mrs. Kilborn. On Sundaj afternoon Mrs. Kilborn spoke to us in the concert hall on " The Women of China, ' ' and her talk was ex- ceedingly interesting as well as inspir- ing. It seemed to fall in as a direct se- quel to her talk last year on ' ' Medical Work in China, " and those of us who were fortunate enough to hear her both times, learned in both addresses much of China about which we had no previous knowledge. Dr. and Mrs. Kilborn have labored for many years in China and with each year their love of the work and people grows, and the earnestness of Mrs. Kilborn ' s address was proof of her love for that far-away land, which is still tn the darkness of heathenism. Mrs. Kilborn told us about the women in the lower classes, and how it was eas- iest to reach them, and then in the upper classes, how easy it was to impress them if only admittance could be gained. She gave different personal experiences which added so much to her talk. She left us with a greater knowledge of China ' s need, and a stronger desire to help our Chinese cousins. A few Sundays ago Ave had the pleasure of having Mrs. McAll, of Tor- onto, address our Y. W. on the ' ' McAll Mission in France in War and Peace. " To most of us the subject was entirely new, and we were very much surprised to hear of the wonderful work being done in that country. Of course, the work of the mission is very different in times of peace from what it is at the present time. Mrs. McAll, in a very interesting w ay, took us over all the settlements of the mission, illustrating her talk with pic- tures and maps. This time of war is just the turning point in atheistic France, and the mission is doing much in the way of leading the masses to the living Christ. It is wholly among the poorer classes that the mission works. Mrs. Mc All ' s visit was much enjoyed by all, and we hope next year to see her agpin and hear more of the very won- derful, work of the McAll Mission. We feel that the Y. W. C. A. should mean much in the life of the College, and we hope that during the past year it has meant something real and vital to every member. Those who are returning may, we hope, return full of enthusiasm and inspiration for better work in the future, and may we all be able to say ' ' For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will but the will of Him that sent Me. " vox COLLEGII 29 Fireside Notes With Miss Porte as chaperon, and a band wagon as conveyance, the Western- ers hied themselves oir to the woods for a picnic one sunny afternoon. They came home a very tired, but very happy party. Florence Edgar spent a week-end at Gladys Morris ' home in Oshawa. Muriel Twin is out again ! That is good news, indeed. For six weeks she has been in quarantine for scarletina, al- though for the last four she has looked perfectly well. Her isolation seems to have agreed with her, for her cheeks are much rounder and rosier than before she was taken ill. She had frequent long distance conversations, and a goodly number of letters from her schoolmates, and they did help to make the hours less tedious. Hazel Collins and Winnif red Syming- ton spent a week-end together in Toron- to. Myrtle Patrick visited her roommate, Aileen Wilkins, for a rather long drawn- out week-end. Edith Reedy and Hazel Bone motored to Toronto for the week-end on two dif- ferent occasions. This announcement will cause gasps of envy from the poor mortals who have to go by train in the hot weather. A merry party of girls under Miss Pascoe ' s able chaperonage, drove to Pick- ering and spent a happy afternoon romp- ing by the beautiful stream west of the town. Yes ! I think romping is the only word for the gay manner in which they passed the time. As usual some very artistic snapshots commemorate the oc- casion. Kay Breithaupt spent the week-end with her sister, Mrs. Parry, of Hamilton. Rita Tew ' s sister, Phyllis, who is at- tending Havergal Ladies ' College, was here for the 24th. Evidently the Haver- gal girls were nearly as sorry as we were that the return basketball game could not be arranged. There was an extremely warm welcome for the Kilborn girls and their mother when they arrived here on May 22nd to enjoy the 24th festivities with us. Mrs. Kilborn gave us a splendid talk at Y.W. C.A. on Sunday. We have missed Connie and Cora in all lines this year, and per- haps particularly in basketball. Our faces naturally broadened into happy smiles when we saw Daisy Craig returning from Toronto after a rather lengthy vacation in the middle of the term. You missed a lot of work, Daisy. Kizzie McCormick believes in making quite frequent visits to her home. AVe do not wonder at this, after having met Mr. and Mrs. McCormick. Mrs. MacPhadyen gave a lovely driv- ing party for the graduates and the girls of Main Hall. We drove to Oshawa, and managed to have a ' ' Mary Pickford " produced for our sole benefits. The de- licious spread which was prepared in the dining-room when we returned, tasted mighty good. Two of last year ' s ' ' Six Mainers " were back for the 24th. Winnifred Patterson 30 VOX COLLEGII spent the week-end with Edith Keedy, - and Winnif red Mills was visiting Freda Pennal. Marge Bain was in a great state of ex- citement before going to Toronto for the week-end, but not much wonder, when she had not seen her mother for nearly a year. Edna Grant has been doing some concert touring " of late, and incident- ally drops in on Toronto occasionally on a shopping expedition. Miss Cecile Barrie, of Hamilton, was the guest of Verda Day over the 24th. Margory Pearce, despite the many at- tractions here, deserted us to go to To- ronto for the week-end of the 24th. Freda Pennal met her father in Toron- to, and remained there for the week-end. Lil. Follick ' s ' ' Darch roommate, " was back for the 24th. Many and wild were the escapades in which they indulged. Gertrude Britnell was in Toronto for a week-end. Millie Cox and Florence Edgar were in Toronto for the week-end of May 14th. They motored back on Tuesday, and thus brought the week-end to a happy finale. We were glad to see all the girls back for the 24th of May, and our only regret was that they could not finish out the term with us. We had quite a lively time in 9 Main with three ' ' jests. " Ruth Day visited Kay, and is her same old ' ' Happy " self, and causes the usual a- mount of amusement. Millie Weddell visited Myrtle, and Jessie Milne was Ail- een ' s guest. Oborne MuUett was home for two week-ends last month. On one of her visits she took her two roommates with her, and, knowing Oborne, we realize that they must have had a good time. Lillian Phillips paid a brief visit to .Margaret Ferrah ' s home last month. Eleanor Wilmott and Eleda Horning were both home for a week-end last month. The change was very welcome. Working for matric is no joke. " Squibby " Scrimes and " Boo " Bar- rett have already left for their Western homes. The parting was far from joy- ful on our part at least, as neither of the girls expect to return next year. Our best wishes for a happy summer, and a bright future go with them. Glad Hart spent a couple of week-ends in Toronto as usual. Some of the girls will persist in going home — quite strange to say. Myrtle Fawcett paid a short visit to Katie Stevens, a 1913 graduate, in Bow- manville during June. Leila Beach was in Toronto for a week- end in June. Mary Carveth had a splendid holiday over the 24th of May, including a motor trip to Peterboro. Hazel Taylor and Bessie Mather had a gay week-end at the home of the lat- ter ' s aunt, in Toronto. Melva Hetherington made a couple of visits to Toronto last month. An ob- streperous tooth has its good points at school where it may often serve as an ex- cuse for a visit home. Minnie Trenouth spent a prolonged week-end in Toronto last month. Some- body whispered that her eyes were at the bottom of the affair. Bessie Lee was the guest of Marie Val- entine for May 24th. Muriel Freeman came back to pay us a visit around the 24th. Christina McLeod spent " May Day " week-end with one of our counsellors, Gertrude lanson. Lila Sutherland quite surprised us all, and spent a day at the College. Sorry you could not stay longer, Lila! Aileen Wilkins and Marge Garlock . visited Mrs. Hatch for a week-end. Verda Day was home for a week-end. Her departure seemed to necessitate temporary changes in roommates. Winnifred Symington spent a week- end Avith her roommate who lives in Whitby. vox COLLEGII 31 One pleasing feature of the Commence- ment Exercises was the number of par- ents who visited the College, amongst whom may be mentioned Mr. and Mrs. McCormick, of London, Ont., and Mr. and Mrs. Hull, of Oshkosh, Wis. The marriage of Miss Olive HoUiday and Mr. Denyes was solemnized at Dr. Hare ' s residence on the morning of June 7th. The word solemnized could hardly be connected though with the way she was pelted with rice afterward. During the ceremony the girls had time to decor- ate the cars with bridal wreath, old slip- pers, tin cans, and rattles of every de- scription. The signs, ' ' Why girls leave home, " ' ' We are just married, " ' ' This is the life, " etc., quite distinguished the effect. The associated chapters ' press corres- pondents are requested to forward copy of interest to T. D. ' s for Vox by the 5th of each month to Mrs. E. Edmund Starr, Whitby. Annual meeting of Whitby Chapter, held June 9th, 1915, full report will be published in our next issue. However, we will present our new President, Miss Florence McG-illivray, who is a Whitby girl, an ex-pupil and ex-teacher of 0. L. C. The homecoming of Trafalgar Daugh- ters on June 17th, 1915, will long be re- membered. Seldom do we have so per- fect a day. Our special portion of Com- mencement Day was from four- thirty to five-thirty in the afternoon, and into the precious moments of this hour we gath- ered comradeship, love and pleasure. We missed the President of the Governing Board, and her cordial smile and greet- ing. Mrs. G. D. Atkinson, President of To- ronto Chapter, presided. Other Daugh- ters at home to enjoy the re-union were : Mrs. Hales, Mrs. Cochrane, Mrs. Walter Powell, Mrs. A. R. Riches, Mrs. Edward Oraham, Mrs. Whitfield, Mrs. Barnard, (London), Mrs. Shillington, Mrs. HoUi- day, Mrs. J. E. Potts, Mrs. E. Edmund Starr, Mrs. Fred J. G. Gallanough, Miss Burkholder (Edmonton), Mrs. J. C. Webster, Miss Taylor, Mrs. J. Tomlin- son, Mrs. Everton Jones, Mrs. Wilkins, Mrs. Stone, Misses Nellie Jeffries, Morti- mer, Florence Reedy, Lizzie Fothergill, Mrs. W. J. H. Richardson, Mrs. G. A. Ross, Mrs. Wright, Miss Wright, Mrs. C. Heath, Mrs. C. F. Fawcett. Mrs. Atkinson, in her opening address, said, ' ' I am not here as President of Toronto Chapter, but simply as a Trafal- gar Daughter, to bring to Dr. and Mrs. Hare the love they have been storing up for themselves in the hearts of all Daugh- ters of O.L.C. " She then read a message of regret from Mrs. 0 ' Sullivan, with greeting ' s, and then asked ' Dr. and Mrs. Hare to receive a cabinet of silver mth a great deal of love from the College daughters. In making the presentation in her happy manner she said, ' ' We got this cabinet of silver so that three times a day, when using it, you will have to think of us. It does not express the ex- tent of our, love for you, but is just a little reminder from the the Daughters 32 VOX COLLEGII of our College home to assure you we are thinking of you, and will ever welcome you to Trafalgar Daughter meetings. " Mrs.Hare replied,saying, ' ' The Trafalgar Daughters are really daughters to the Dr. and myself, and so leaving the old school is like leaving home. We shall al- ways be grateful that the Lord brought us to " Whitby. We have only begun a work that should extend. ' ' ' ' You Daughters should be the builders. This should be the first university of the land. " Warmly Mrs. Hare thanked the Daughters for their love and thoughtful- ness. MISS FLORENCE M ' GILUVRAY. Dr. Hare added a few words. He said : am so surprised that I cannot say anything. I endorse what Mrs. Hare has said. I cannot describe my feelings to-day. I love the place. The Trafalgar Daughters I know are deeply interested. The College will go forward with a steady march — forward. I wanted to give the best I had to give — the best of my manhood, my energy, my ability. I am delighted with the work of the year. I am delighted with the activities of Tra- falgar Daughters. The. President of To- ronto Chapter is indeed a live wire. I hope this may be the leading Women ' s University in Canada. Again thanking the Daughters for their kindness. " Mrs. Atkinson then asked Mrs. W. J. H. Richardson to come to the platform. Mrs, Richardson requested Prof, and Mrs. Greenwood to come forward, and on be- half of the Trafalgar Daughters (many had been pupils of Prof. Greenwood), presented two handsome brass pieces for their desk, as a token of respect, as pu- pils to a teacher interested in the ad- vancement of pupils and the interest of the College, while Mrs. Greenwood had endeared herself to all T. D. ' s and had ably assisted the Association as Corres- ponding Secretary of Whitby Chapter. Mr. Greenwood acknowledged the gifts, and expressed their appreciation of such an evidence of good will. His work had been both interesting and pleasant, and after twenty-three years within our Col- lege halls he would miss being associa- ted with Dr. Hare. On behalf of Mrs. Greenwood and himself, he thanked the T. D. ' s. The chair then asked Mrs. Webster to come to the platform. Thereupon she re- quested Miss Wright to come forward, and on behalf of the Trafalgar Daugh- ters, Mrs. Webster, in a few kindly words, voiced the love of comrades and presented Miss Wright with a dainty pearl pin. Miss Wright, moved by such thought for her, thanked Mrs. Webster and the T. D. ' s Association for their gift and courtesy. Mrs. Atkinson then asked the retiring President of Whitby Chapter, Miss Tay- lor, Lady Principal, to come to the plat- form, and she presented, on behalf of the Association a bouquet of beautiful roses (nature ' s love token), accompanied with sincere good wishes for continued success in life to our retiring President and co- worker. Miss Taylor acknowledged the gift and greeting in her own bright way. The T. D. hour Avas passing all too quickly, but we still had time to welcome a few words of greeting from the Presi- dent of Edmonton Chapter, Miss Burk- holder, B.A., ex-Lady Principal and ex- President of Whitby Chapter, when it vox COLLEGII 33 v as, as it will ever be to many, the moth- er chapter. In responding to Mrs. Atkinson ' s invi- tation to speak, Miss Burkholder said: " It is such a joy to be here. I traveled five days to get here, and the great iron horse seemed to come so slowly, when I thought of Commencement day and the going from our College halls of Dr. and Mrs. Hare. We have a chapter in Ed- monton. They (T.D. ' s) want me to go to Calgary and organize there, also Van- couver. ' ' Miss Burkholder also voiced the be- lief that this is the place for a women ' s university. If the College is not put to the fore some other college will spring up and take the place. It is a need. Our ex-President was as bright and refresh- ing as a western breeze, and we would have enjoyed a more lengthy address, but our commencement hour of 1915 had gone, and we still looked forward to hear- ing Mrs, Riches ' poem, ' From Outside Fields So Green, ' dedicated to Dr. Hare. This was our closing number, and all en- joyed the poem ' which was as follows: FROM OUTSIDE FIELDS SO GREEN. Dedicated to Dr. Hare. Oh Doctor dear, and did you hear The news around the town, How all the old Trafalgar girls Have turned things up side down? You know the great resolves they made On that old bygone day, When led by Nora Hamilton, They formed the League so gay. They ' re the most forgetful lot of girls, That ever have been seen. When they leave the good old college For outside fields so green. Oh Doctor dear, and is it so That in those days so blue. Our President who rules us now Was often ruled by you? That though her voice was much admired. When she sang loud or weak, When you cried, " Dora, cut it out, " You wouldn ' t hear a squeak. She ' s the most delightful chairman That ever bossed a crowd, " Is it your pleasure, ladies? " Is her favorite dialogue. Oh Doctor dear, and do you know That after all ' s been said, Trafalgar Daughters have a boss Who is no figurehead? By birth and training she has proved That women she can rule. And she admits she learned it all In Whitby ' s good old school. She has as good an Irish name As ever has been seen, And long may our O ' Sullivan Keep wearing of the green. Oh Doctor dear, we often think Of those old days gone by. When in one good old Whitby home. We fed on cake and pie. The Hatch ' s then kept open house. To many a lonely girl. And Emma led us to a feast - Fit for a duke or earl She ' s now mixed up with drugs and herbs. Instead of cakes and pies. But thoughts of those old splendid eats Still bring tears to our eyes. Oh Doctor dear, and don ' t you think - That it ' s a mortal sin For one of our dear members To always stay so thin? Of course she ' s also rather tall And has some golden hair. And if she pleases Georgie Ross Why should we others care? She ' s the girl we knew as Lizzie French In days when she was seen Imbibing knowledge at your feet, In Whitby, fair and green. Oh Doctor dear, and will you plead With all your power and might With one dear member of our League To help us in our plight? We ' ve used all our persuasion And tried with pen and lip To lead her to adopt our views And can that scholarship. So please ask Francis to assent. And the money please hand o ' er; We need it in our business To keep wolves from our door. Oh Doctor dear, and do you know That at this joyful feast We greet our youngest Chapter Who are last, but not the least? While they hail from ' neath the mountain, Just four miles from Dundas, Their origin ' s forgotten When they join our happy class. 34 VOX COLLEGII They ' re the cutest little Chapter That Trafalgar Daughters own, And with mighty Jean to lead them They can surely walk alone. Oh Doctor dear, the kindest thing That ever you did there Was bringing to the College halls Our dear friend Mrs. Hare. To us she ' s been a guiding star On days and nights of gloom. The dearest thoughts in all our hearts; Old Whitby ' s fairest bloom. She ' s the nicest and the kindest That Whitby ' s ever seen, And her good works still assist us In outside fields so green. Oh Doctor dear, and is it so That on a nearby day You both will leave our College In gentler fields to stray? We can not see you parting From the realm you used to rule Without a heartfelt token From the old girls of the school. May these words be a reminder Of the love we bear you still. And may the good God keep you Many years your place to fill. Ethel Riches. WEDDING BELLS IN OUR MIDST. The beloved May Queen of 1914 be- comes a bride in Trafalgar Castle.
