Editorial It is with a sigh of relief and yet with much regret that we take up our pens for the last time for this, our last Vox. The year has been a very happy and beneficial one for us all in spite of the hard work and difficulties which have arisen. We have found in our faculty true friends indeed who were ever will- ing to aid in whatever way they found possible. The girls have been most gen- erous in their contributions and we have found them always good-naturedly " will- ing to assist at the shortest notice and at times when it seemed almost impos- sible. To one and all who have so kindly assisted throughout this year, we wish to extend our hearty thanks, and to the editors of next year ' s Vox we extend our best wishes for the greatest success, and trust that their position " will prove as enjoyable a one as it has this year to us. The editors regret the extreme late- ness of the Commencement issue and that even now so few of the departments are represented. The causes for delay are many, and probably a jury, after investigation, would bring in a verdict of " by person or persons unknown. " It is our hope, how ever, that the reading of the number may re-vive memories and cause us to live again the happy exper- iences of bygone days. vox COLiiEGII Class Biographies 3 Miss Morden Busby.

She intends to help her dad in his business, and we feel confident of her success. Her favorite expression — By Heck. Her pastime — Writing letters. Miss Ruth Dixon. Miss Ruth Dixon first saw the light of day in Maple Creek, Sask. After attend- ing High School there for four years she then cast her lot Avith O.L.C, where she has remained three years. She is president of the Y.W.C.A., and what the school would do without her kindh ' patient little self, no one knows. Little Dixie she is called, and Dixieland or 9 Main holds Ruth as one of its main at- tractions. She is graduating in Domestic Science, and we sincerely hoped the hard practical work would not be too much for her, and she has proven that it was not. Her hobby — Muriel Maw. Favorite Expression. — Dear ! Dear ! Miss Dorothy Follett. Dorothy entered the school late in the year, but it did not take long before she had acquired a host of friends. She comes from Toronto. Her music is a delight to the ear and we ' re not surpris- ed at the splendid way in which she got her A.T.C.M. Not satisfied with this, however, she is intending to get her L. T.C.il. What an ambitious creature is our Dorothy! Her favorite pastime is reading dime novels. Her Hobby — Teach in China. Miss Margaret Maxwell. Welsford claims to be the place of Margaret ' s birth, although she now hails from St. Johns.

Her pet x)hrase — Where ' s Jim? vox COLLEGII Graduation Exercises 5 FRIDAY, JUNE 7th. First came the contest for the gold medaljgiven for proficiency in swimming and life-saving, open to students holding the Award of Merit. The contest was very keen and interesting between the three competitors, Morden Busby, Jean- ette Higginbotham and Marcelle Smith. The events in the competition were as follows : — Breast stroke, 25 yards ; back stroke without the use of arms, 25 yards ; speed swim, 25 yards ; illustration of methods in release and rescue of the drowning; swim and object dive; for- ward dive from spring-board, plunge and sculling. The medal was awarded to Marcelle Smith, holding 33 points, with Jeanette Higginbotham coming a close second with 31 points. The longest plunge was 33 ft. 11 in., taken by Mor- den Busby. There were three competitors in the contest for the silver medal which fol- lowed, open to the students holding the Bronze Medallion. The events were the same, with the omission of the plunge and sculling. Hellen Pulling was the winner of this medal, holding 35 points. After these two contests came the sports open to all swimmers. There were races, showing various strokes ; a relay race, which Droved to be very thrilling ; a candle race, and a cork race. The cork race was highly amusing as the corks seemed to be very elusive, and receded slowly but surely before the expectant mouths of the girls. Hellen Pulling, the holder of the highest number of points, was awarded a silver " A " by the Ath- letic Association, and honorable mention was given to Marcelle Smith. At the close of the afternoon, Mr. Winterburn, the swimming instructor, from the Central Y. M. C. A., of Toron- to, who was judging the sports, gave a very interesting and instructive exhibi- tion. He showed very clearly the differ- ence between land and water breathing, and the absolute necessity for a swim- mer to use the latter. He illustrated the crawl, trudgeon and several back strokes. Following that, he showed some new methods in life-saving and release. On Friday evening, Miss Winifred Symington, our post-graduate student in expression, delighted her audience by her rendering of " The Dawn of a To- Mon ' ow. " She was called back by en- thusiastic applause and read the charm- ing little selection, " Who ' s Afraid. " Miss Georgian Smith, our postgraduate student in piano, assisted in the program in her usual brilliant style, and was very much appreciated. The program was as follows : Etude in G Flat - - Chopin Prelude G Minor - Rachmaninoff Georgian Smith. " The Dawn of a To-morrow " Frances Hodgson Burnett Winifred Symington. Midsummer Night ' s Dream Mendelssohn-Liszt Georgian Smith. SATURDAY, JUNE 8th. This year it was thought well to hold a Field Day in the Spring as well as in the Autumn. It took place on Saturday, June 8th, as part of the closing exercises. In the morning the tennis finals in doubles were played off, Irene Tarlton and Irma Wigle being the winners. The semi-finals in the singles were played also, but it was found that the time was too short to play the finals. They were left over until the following Monday morning, when Irma Wigle proved to be the winner, after very long and closely contested games. At half past two o ' clock in the after- noon the sports began. The winners of the various events were as follows: 50 yd. dash, 15 years and over. — Mar- celle Smith. 50 yd. dash, 14 years and under. — Ruth Blaisdell. 6 VOX COLLEGII AVheelbarrow Race. — Florence McGil- livray and iVIargaret BlaisdeU. Three-legged Race — AVinnifi " ed Hamb- ly and Irene Carse. Relay Race — Hellen Pulling ' s Team. Junior Race. — Lila AVillinsky. Tng-of-War. — Helen Wai ' d ' s Team. Margaret Blaisdell was the holder of the highest number of points, Marcelle Smith coming second. After the sports a baseball game was played between the Commercial and Col- legiate Department of the College. It was a very exciting game, and gi " ew ' es- pecially so towards the end. It closed vrith the final score of 22-12 in favor of the Collegiate Department. At the close cake and lemonade were sold to the hungry and thirsty s]iortsmen by the Seniors and Juniors respectively. ■ This closed the athletic activities for the year, and eveiyone feels that great praise is due the executive of the Ath- letic Association for their enthusiasm and work to make the athletics of the college a success. On Saturday evening the pupils of Miss Gott and Miss Brush gave a con- cert. It was the first public perfonnance of many of the girls, and they did credit to themselves and their teachers.

This year the church was beautifully decorated by the Juniors and Trafalgar Daughtera. The baccalaureate sermon Sunday evening in the Methodist CTiurch was de- livered by Rev. E. W. Halpenny, B.A., B.D., General Field Superintendent of the Intenaational Sunday School Asso- ciation, and was greatly enjoyed. In part it was as follows : Text.— James 4 : 14, " What is Your Life " ? For ye are a vapor that appear- eth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. " St. John 12 : 24, " Verily, ver- ily, I say unto you, except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth by itself alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit. He that loveth his life loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eter- nal. " This twenty-fourth verse of John 12 is a striking utterance of Jesus. It seems to have been occasioned by the approach of the Greeks who " desired to see Jesus. ' ' Eusebius narrates that he found in the archives in Edessa a record of a message sent to Jesus by Abgarus, King of Edessa in Mesopotamia. The king had had a long illness. He sent for Jesus, and in his communication inti- mates hearing that they of Jemsalem were not using Him well. Abgarus also offers Him a safe home in Edessa. Such an occurrence is quite within the limit of possibility. To prescribe " death " as a condition for life does seem to be a strange contra- diction of terms. As a youth I do not recall any text that made such a sad im- pression upon me. I could not under- vox CO stand it, and felt a sense of rebellion against its implication. Life ! largest life ! is the goal of every- body. It may not be unreasonable to assume that all are seeking it, and im- agine they are finding it. The key will be found in the interpretation we place on life or the point of view from which we regard it. The individual who thinks in terms of his body only, will very nat- urally have one view, and a limited one at that. The man who interprets in terms of mind will find limitations, while the spiritual view is boundless. The apostle James in our text has set us thinking, and Jesus in John twelve, twenty-four, offers the solution. Two principles are involved. We will turn our thought to an investigation of these. 1. The living force in any life reaches its proper value and influence through death and self-denial. A careful and modest estimate justifies the statement that every Christmastide in North Amer- ica we sacrifice one hundred millions of years of evergreen tree-life to gratify our desires and tastes. At first blush we are horrified by the thought, and yet is not that just what they are for? They also thus serve. Every time we take food, we kill to sustain. There is not a particle of food that does not represent death unto life. It is remarkable that we ' ' kill and eat, " " kill and eat " to sustain the body, but the process is inverted in soul de- velopment. In this it is " crucify the flesh with its affections and lusts. " It was thus that " Jesus, who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross despising the shame. " The joy set before Him was the joy of serving others —you and me. This is what He meant when in John ' s setting He said, " Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone, but if it die it bringeth forth much fruit. " By living for others our interests are widened, our desires for life increased, and the results and ends of life enriched. Observe the influence of selfishness in any life as it bears fruit in the latter half of that life. Who does not abhor the home that is wilfully childless and L E G 1 1 , 7 lovingly yearn for that empty ann and heart where the longed for family does not come, or coming has so soon been snatched away. I repeat to you the val- ued testimony of an experienced friend who once said to me, ' ' There is nothing in life calculated to develop the manhood in man and the womanhood in woman like the sacrifices that are demanded by the presence of child life in the home. " He was right. The law of the seed is the law of hu- man life. Use your life for present and selfish gratification, and you lose it for- ever. Renounce self, yield yourself to service, spend your life for the common good irrespective of recompense or lack of it, personal pleasure or the absence of it, and although your life may seem to be lost, it is finding its best and highest development and passes into life eter- nal. Your life is a seed now, and it can be- come a developed plant, only by your taking heart to cast it from you and sow it in the fertile soil of other men ' s needs. B} ' this means you set free the vital forces that are in your life. The man who most freely uses his life for others, keeping least to himself and living sole- ly for the common good of mankind has the most enduring influence. He sets in motion forces which propagate fresh re- sults eternally. The only permanent in- vestment possible in life is wha.t we in- vest in the soul life of other people. In relation to others, people are divid- ed into three classes : ( a ) Those who seek — by using others. In this class are grafters, those who steal, slanderers, oppressors, gossipers. Jealousy of others can only lead to ill- treatment. It is easier to " weep with those that weep " than to " rejoice with those that rejoice. " If you don ' t believe it, try to be glad with the person who is surpassing you in influence, in society, on exams., etc. (b) Those who seek — without molest- ing others. In this class belong those who " go a- way back and sit down " and who won ' t play at all if things can ' t go their way. (c) Those who seek — by aiding others. 8 VOX COLLEGII In this group are all those splendid souls who may well be represented by such as Florence Nightingale, Frances Willard. and the Seventh Earl of Shaft- esbury ' . 2. The second principle is— Life pro- pagates its own kind. We cannot die as Jesus died, but we must yield our lives as living sacrifices in the interests of men. For how can man die better Than facing fearful odds For the ashes of his fathers And the temple of his gods, or For whethej- on the scaffold Or in the battle ' s van. The fittest place for man to die Is where he dies for man. We cannot live for selfish purposes and then enjoy the common happiness and glory of the race. Self-seeking means self-destroying. Think of the burning, blighting influence of jealousy, envy or hate. God and the world demand our best work, and only what we do with pleasure can be our best. Find your happiness in the happiness of many rather than in the happiness of one, and life becomes simple and inspii ' ing. Every human life is un- der this law. " Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone. " This cannot be imderstood or appreciated by the selfish or self-center- ed, nor by any one charged with a sec- ond or third gi ' ade view. The contrast has been tritely set by Florence Earle Coates in a poem called: " Poor Love, said Life. ' ' which runs as follows : " Poor Love, " said Life, " thou has nor gold. Nor lands, nor other store I ween ; Thy very shelter from the cold Is oft but lowly built and mean. " " Nay, though of brushes be my bed, Yet I am rich, ' ' Love said. Persisted Life: " Thrice fond art thou To yield the sovereign gifts of earth, The victor ' s sword, the laureled brow, For visioned things of little worth. " Love gazed afar, with dream-lit eyes, And answered ' ' Nay, but wise. ' ' " Yes, Love, " said Life, " What can atone For all the travail of the years. The yearnings vain, the vigils lone The pain, the sacrifice, the tears ' ? " Soft as the breath breathed from a rose The answer came, " Love knows. " Life is a mission. " There was a man sent from God whose name was John. " Sent ? Yes, but not more than you and I are sent, also every one who ' ' willeth to do His vvill. " Ask yourself these questions: — Whence came I? What am I? What am I here for Is there any good in me? If there is, have I found it? In wha t way is it functioning? Dear members of the Class of 1918, no class in any year has ever gone out in a time of greater opportunity. There is a place for each one of you. Find it! and say with Van Dyke : ' ' May I but find it in my heart to say, When vagrant wishes beckon me astray. This is my Avoi ' k ! my blessing ! not oiy doom. Of all who live, I am the one by whom This Avoi ' k can best be done. ' ' MONDAY JUNE 10th. ( ' lass Day is always very interesting, and nevei ' more so than this year. A new feature was the introduction of a tree planting ceremony by the .Seniors, a link which will bind the Seniors to the Col- lege for all time. It is hoped that this may prove a precedent for future grad- uating cla.sses. This ceremony was followed by the as- .sembly of the Seniors in the concert hall where the cutting of the dais chjiin, the reading of biographies and prophecies, the valedictory addi ' css and songs and sallies were gi ' catly enjoyed. The President of the class, Muriel Maw, presided and spoke feelingly and appropriately as follows : As President of the Senior Class I would like to say that the association has been a pleasant one. I have felt the support of the Seniors in all the func- tions that we have undertaken, and now, on behalf of the Senior Class, I would like to express our appreciation for the the counsel and support of our Senior vox COLLEGII 9 teacher. Not. only has Miss Thompson given of her counsel and support, but we have also enjoyed her companionship throughout the year, and we wish to pub- licly express our appreciation. Instead of the last will and testament which has been given by the Seniors in former years, the Class decided to give a valedictoiy speech, and 1 know that you will all be glad to hear that Ruth Dixon has the honor of being appointed our Valedictorian. Miss Dixon then read the valedictory ' as follows : The task which I have before me, that of Valedictorian, is a very difficult one, for tw o reasons — first, that farewells are always painful, and, secondly, because, " i valedictory address has no definite text. In spite of the difficulty and the sadness of it there is a certain pleasure in it. too, for it recalls to us our first days of school and all the happy hours of work and fun w hich have followed. I am sure that all present have vivid recollections of their first days at school, the straiigeness of surroundings, the bewildering numbers of new faces, the amazing knowledge dis- played by the old students, and last, but not least, the terrible awe inspired by the most learned and dignified faculty. How uncertain we Avere about courses, and how ambitious we w ere to make every subject on the curriculum fit Avith our time table! But w e gradiially gave up one subject after another and each finally confined herself to one coui se. The regular daily tasks, the friendliness of our school mates, and the sports and other activities of college life soon drove away all feelings of loneliness and home- sickness ; and it was not long before the college seemed to us a very dear home. Time sped by — hard work, fleeting week- end visits, sleighrides, our Junior con- cert, and before we realized it we found ourselves into the whirl of Commence- ment week. The return in the fall was a joyous on6 — friends separated for the summer months, reunited, and oh — the interest- ing talks and visits we must have with each other. In the midst of the joy of reunion, the recollections of the first lonely days of the previous year mado us anxious to extend a warm welcome to the new students, for we remembered how much a kindly word from an old girl really meant. The settling down to work and the ar- ranging of classes was not such a difficult task this year for we had learned many lessons from the previous year and we understood that the realizing of our at- tainments depended upon steady and un- failing work. Then we found ourselves with responsibilities, for we were the old girls, and must try to fill the positions of honor which the seniors of the year before had vacated. I am sure I speak on behalf of every member of the Senior class wdien I say that it is with mingled feelings of appre- ciation a,nd regret that we leave our col- lege home. We owe to it a debt of loy- alty because it has developed in us to some small extent the lofty ideals for Avhich it stands. We wish to thank Mr. Farewell for his personal and almost fatherly interest in each individual stu- dent which has made each one of us feel perfectly free to go to him at any time with our special difficulties. The ideals of development Avhich he is so success- fully working out in this college hava been a constructive force in our own de- velopment. His persistent optimism in seeing ahvays the very best in us has helped us to live up to what he believed us to be. To Miss Maxw ' ell Aye feel we owe deep gi ' atitude for the careful thought and anxious consideration Avhich she gives :to every student. Her kindness, and her SA ' mpathy in trouble have won our re- spect and affection. Her rare culture and refinement have influenced us more than even Ave ourselves realize. Those of us who have had the privilege of studying English under Miss Maxwell have some faint appreciation of her keen intellect and literary insight. To the Faculty we wish to express our sincerest thanks for all that they have meant to us during our school days. The awe Avhich we first felt for them gradually gave way to wannth and 10 vox COLLEGII friendliness as we foiuid them always svTnpathetic and ready to help us with any difficulties. But while we bepran to think of them as friends our respect for their knowledge and their authority was not diminished. In fact they may haA-e suffered for their learuedness by bein x bothered continually with appeals for help upon every possible line. We es- pecially appreciate their readiness to en- ter into all our activities of school life ; indeed they have been as older sisters to us, helping us in every possible way. To our fellow students we extend all sorts of good wishes for their further work here, and if it brings to them as much pleasure and profit as it has to us, I am sure they will have very loving and grateful memoricvs of the Ontario Ladies ' College. To each member of the Senior Class we extend hearty congratulations and the very best of wishes for the work which each one is about to take up. Times arc so changed and uncertain and women are being called upon more and more to take positions of responsibility, thus making it necessary for a thorough train- ing. We feel that our graduating class this year is indeed going out well equip- ped to take positions of trust. There is a great call for well-trained business wo- men to take the places vacated by our men in active seiwice, and we are proud to say that we are sending out six capable girls who hope to help the situation as best they can. The problem of food con- servation has become so acute that wo- men with a knowledge of foods and their values are now in great demand, and wide fields of activity are open to the four domestic graduates. In the stress and strain of the present world situation we ought not to neglect the beautiful in life, and we are glad that the college can send out three graduates in music and one in Art, thus contributing to our na- tion ' s artistic development. No matter what our work may be, whether at home or abroad, may we all prove true to the ideals of our Alma Mater. After this splendid valedictory ad- dress the prophecies respecting the dif- ferent graduates were read as follows: MoRDKN Busby. In 1930, while visiting in New York, I was told of the presence of a large choir which was giving a series of concerts. I obtained a ticket and entered the large auditorium where the concert was to be held. When the choir came out on the platform I was very much interested in the appearance of the leader who looked so tall and stately, wielding her baton and directing the choir. I could not but think she looked familiar to me, and when obtaining a glimpse of her face you can imagine my surprise as I dis- covered her to be my old college chum, Morden Busby, a member of the grad- uating class of 1918 at O.L.C. After the pei ' formance I was alile to talk to her for a few minutes, when she explained her career since leaving college. She had taken a position as stenographer in the office of the manager of the choir. While there she had the good fortune to meet the director of the choir, and as the old story goes, love at first sight. She soon found her voice to be her foite and later, when hci- husband lost his voice, she had taken over the dii ' cctorship of the choir. Rtjth Dixon. As I sat in the street car this moi ' ning on my way down town 1 spied a huge notice on the back of the newspaper which the man opposite to me was read- ing — a notice telling the public that the much talked-of prize fight between the world ' s women champions would be held this evening. Gi eatly interested in the fate of our own beloved heroine, I im- mediately commenced to make my tele- phone wires buzz, and within a few min- utes had a legion of supporters promised for the evening performance. Would the time ever come! Dishes were left standing on tables, brooms in their cor- ners, husbands were commissioned to mind the baby without fail, while the all-important members of the family busied themselves with gathering to- gether groups of fans and supporters of Spitoonia. All the seats were filled long before the appointed time, women with their knitting or their newspapers, and vox COLLEGII 11 occasionally escorting a husband. At the appointed hour, a gong sounded and the two combatants stepped into the ring. The noise of cheers and clapping was deafening, for Spitoonia our friend has been famous in our part of the world. However, when I glanced at her oppon- ent I gasped, looked again, and recog- nized in the huge and powerful form of the stranger our old friend Ruth Dixon, who at one time was a student with me at O.L.C. I was amazed, but one by one her little peculiarities came back to me — the manner in which she chewed that eternal gum and the great strides she took as she moved around the ring, her little tuft of yellow hair nodding occas- ionally to some friend whom she recog- nized in the crowd. Of course, no one could stand before Ruth, and she won a great victory over the defenceless Spitoonia. Even yet I can scarcely realize that our Ruth has reached the height of her ambition, which was to be a pugilist. Dorothy Follett. It was my first visit to New York, and I was much interested in Chinatown. Willing to try anything, I requested my guide to take me to a Chinese restaurant for chop suey. The Chinese waiter, a thin, wizened-up little fellow, was very friendly, and I was obtaining some inter- esting information from him when I felt, rather than -saw, some person look- ing at me with an angry stare. Turning around I beheld a very stout woman coming towaM me with a rolling-pin in her hand and her face covered with flour. The Chinaman began to cower back and murmur something about his " jealousee wifee. " I thought it wise to leave as quickly as possible, and was hurrying after the guide when a very familiar phrase dropped from the lips of the stout cook. I turned, puzzled at the sound, and saw a gleam of recognizition shoot across her face. She advanced toward me, the rolling-pin a thing of the past, and to my astonishment I recognized my former school-mate, Dorothy Follett. She and her poor little hen-pecked husband were running a high-class Chinese res- taurant with Dorothy as cook and he as proprietor and clerk. Having graduated in music Dorothy was very sharp in trade but fell flat in cooking. However, I found her as natural as ever. Margaret Maxwell. While holidaying in England in 1922 I was advised of the great world-wide exhibition being held in London on a cer- tain date. Anxious, of course, to take in all I possibly could, I planned to visit the exhibition. It was a wonderful affair ! The build- ings far surpassed anything I had ever seen before, and the exhibits were a mar- vel to my eyes. As I strolled through the wonderful process building I noticed a large crowd gathered around one exhibit, so I went towards it. Inside the enclos- ure there stood a young woman in a plain tailored skirt and a high-necked shirt- waist, dem.onstrating in a very busi ness- like way a new flreless cooker and com- menting upon its many superior qual- ities. Her voice was deep-set and gruff from long experience in this line of work, the only feminine touch about her being a red rose which was tucked into her hair low down on her neck. I gasp- ed as I looked at her,f or surely I had met her before. Yes, certainly ! it was my old class-mate Margaret Maxwell, who spent so many happy days mth me at O.L.C. After the exhibit I hurried to her, and we had a very pleasant re-union. When I enquired about the presence of the red rose, she laughingly explained that she had always worn one since her student days to remind her of — she did not have time to finish as a large crowd had gath- ered, and it was time for another dem- onstration. Muriel Maw. One day, while walking through a pub- lic library, a large brown book entitled " Maw ' s Many Methods For Making Meals, ' ' caught my eye. I took it to the librarian for recommendation, and she informed me that at first it had not been popular, but of late had become famous, 12 ;, ;TOX,T OLLE GII world-wide. I was told that I mi ht meet the authoress as she was in the building at the present time for her beloved daily hour with the great mistress, so it was with gi-eat expectation that I went for- wai ' d to meet her. I was led to where a very slim woman wearing a high collar, her hair brushed straight back, and large tortoise-shell rimmed glasses, sat deeply engrossed in an immense volume entitled, ' ' The Life of an Insect. ' ' Approaching. I did not recognize her, but on being in- troduced to her fomid that it was none other than Mui ' iel Maw. our beloved president of the 1918 senior class at the Ontario Ladies ' College. I learned that after leaving the college. Mxiriel had, for several years, taught shorthand, a. course which she discovered to be both varied and interesting. She had just come to the conclusion that this was to be her life work when she received an order from King George V to take command of the Royal kitchen to teach the women of England economy. This work proved too strenuous, and her health broke down, so she undertook Titing, the result of which was this wonderful book which I later found to be invaluable. LrcY Robertson. In 1925, while in California. I visited the -Universal City, the home of many a thrilling moving picture. Through the couitesy of my guide I was given the privilege of watching a picture being taken. It was supposed to represent a royal duchess being chased by a common burglar, who washed to gain possession of the wonderful jewels which adorned her neck and hands. She ran up hiU and down and paddled through muddy streams lantil she looked ready to drop at any minute. When she appeared to be able to hold out against her pursuer no longer, she spied a steep rock, and with another effort she began to climb, and with perseverance reached the top. She never stopped, but ran to a wide ledge which overhung a pretty little lake, and with one spring dived into the silent water below. When the picture was over and I was able to see the actress more closely. You can imaging my surprise when I discovered that this daring person was no one else than my old class-mate, Lucy Robertson, who had gone into the movies to nuike her fortune doing stunts. WiNNiFRED Scott. While at the Toronto Exhibition in 1923, I was passing along the midway and finally found myself in a crowded tent, where fancy riders were perform- ing. The first thing that met my eyes was a imrc white horse, ridden by no one else than Winnifred Scott of 1918 graduating class at O.L.C ' . She was per- forming all sorts of fancy stunts, and you can imagine my consternation to see her in such a place. After the perform- ance I Avent over and spoke to her, and she informed me that she liked her work very well and in her spare time she was painting a gruesome i)oster of the " Wild Man from Borneo. " Grace Sykes. In 1926, while in California, I was taken one day to see the famous and uni((ue Sykes musical farm. On it lived one hundred and seven girls, all about 18 years of age. ' They worked foiir hours a day on a farm and studied music the rest of the time. I was introduced to the Lady Principal, who was a smiliug young lady vnth a most fetchiuu, twinkle in her eye. I recognized her immediate- ly as my old school chum, Grace Sykes. iShe ha.d left O.L.C. after working on the school farm, and the work so fascin- ating her, she vowed to return to it some day. She studied music for years and years, and then had become a noted teacher. Moving to California she built this farm. This is the only musical farm in the world. Olive Tucker. In the year 1926 one of the famous exhibitions was being held in Chicago. A party of us were attending it, and af- ter enjoying the wonderful sights within the various buildings, walked out upon vox COLLEGII 13 the Pike. Here we found numerous at- tractions ; men were calling for our at- tention everywhere. At last one appeal- ed to us, and after paying the price. lOc, we entered a tent. This was the tent of the " Famous Diving Girls! " talked of all over the world by those who have seen them. After watching them for a few minutes my attention was drawn to one in particular. A very fat, pale dark girl, who took the 60 foot leap and sum- mei ' saults beautifully. I asked someone who she was. ' ' Starry her name is, ' ' they said. ' ' Starry ? ' ' " l said. " Yes, ' ' they replied, " of course that is only her Pike name. Her own name is Olive Tucker. She comes from the Queen City of Canada, and was at one time a gi aduate of the Ontario Ladies ' College in Commercial. But owing to her gi-eat ability of leap- ing from one key to the other, every- one decided she should put it to higher and better advantage, so she now per- forms in the World Famous Exhibit inns under the assumed name of Starry. " After the performance I was able, with great delight, to talk with this young lady, who was one of my friends and classmates in the said college, and wish her every success in her wonderful fete. Clara Underhill. January, 1930. — I was feeling rather b)lue yesterday afternoon, so, in order to cheer my broken spirits, I decided to go to the theatre, having heard that the bill was good. We all enjoyed the acts very much, more especially the fifth one. A dainty little toe-dancer, garbed in a green ballet-skirt, flitted across the stage and executed a most beautiful dance call- ed the Swan dance. Now Avho do you suppose that little soubrette was? If I didn ' t discover that it was my old college pal, Clara Underhill ! We would never have imagined that Clara, after graduat- ing in 1918 as a housekeeper, would go on the stage, but she did. Perhaps the second part of her act will give us some light on the subject. When she brought out her partner we found him to be a very handsome young man. who appear- ed most attentive to his graceful little partner. DONALDA VySE. As I was going through one of the departmental stores in New York, I hapr pened to see a very familiar face, which I had seen several years ago. Now, who do you suppose it was? My old school chum, Donalda Vyse, who graduated in ' 18. She said she had been traveling with Barnum Bailey ' s world-wide known circus. Her career was long and tedious, but sh e had now reached the heights of star and head-liner. At this late period she had at last decided to desert the public and resume a quiet and regular life. Here I found her, as head bookkeeper. We thereby see that Don- alda, like the rest of us, holds to the old proverb " That variety is the spice of life ' ' ; so just for a change she is doing bookkeeping and proving a credit to her Alma Mater, wbom she left ten years ago. HELEN V ARD. I In the summer of 1935, I was travel- ing in Japan. While in Tokyo one after- noon I visited the Y.W.C.A. building. I was shown over the building, and while walking through one of the upper halls I heard a very familiar sound. I was shown into the room from which this strange sound came, and I Avas unable to proceed any farther than the door, for there sat Helen Ward, my old classmate, and she was demonstrating at 125 words a minute on an Underwood typewriter, for the benefit of an interested group of Japanese girls. Needless to say she was very much surprised to see me too, but when we had both recovered from our astonishment, she told me that she had been there for several years, having gone as a missionary. As she had graduated in Commercial at O.L.C. in 1918, she thought she could best serve as an in- structor in the Business College, so here she was teaching the mysteries of the Touch System. 14 VOX COLLEGII Irma Wigle. One fine afternoon a fcAv days aeo in lovely California where I have betaken myself to enjoy that blessed peace of old age after the strenuous days at O.L. C., thoughts of old friends back in Ontario prompted me to take a short journey in my new 1948 aeroplane. jNIaking en- quiries from the air-traffic cop stationed above Windsor as to the pleasure route to Toronto, the information was given ac- companied by a smile and a smart salute, but something in the smile and s alute brought back memories of O.L.C., and to my amazement I foimd it was our own Irma Wigle. She has a wonderful i e- cord of aei ' oplane accomplishments, and it is obvious that the calling she chose has been of a great benefit to her. Irma is now anxious to complete her twenty years in the sei ' vice for which she re- ceives a comfortable little bonus — to vnt a pension. My suggestion of coming up to see you all was accepted with joy, and Irma will be leaving as soon as she is " off the beat. " In the evening, from 6 to 8 o ' clock, the Seniors were banqueted by the Jun- iors and the usual toasts wei ' e proposed and responded to by many witticisms and oratorical effect. TUESDAY, JUNE 12th. The Undergraduates ' concert was given at 3.30 Tuesday afternoon. The program was very delightful and afford- ed the audience a great deal of pleasure.

The Principal then delivered an inter- esting address outlining the work of the year, and closed by an appeal to the student body and the graduating class as follows : I would not let this occasion go by without a word to the undergraduates and students of the school generally. There is no one of you whom I do not know and know even better than you think. And I think I may say on this last day of our college year that I know nothing bad of any one of you. I do not mean to say that you are all angels, nor would you wish to be regarded as such. It may be that now and then you have been somewhat careless and indifferent to the passing opportunities and have not always been your best or done your best. Indeed we have all lapsed sometimes during the year. But notwithstanding these lapses, I think to-day only of your strength and goodness and splendid pos- sibilities. If I remember, I said a year ago you were all my favorites. I can say this again to-day — You are all my favor- ites. I see you each not only as you are but as you miglit be. I am as deeply in- terested in you as you are. I am espe- cialy interested in the strong and true personaliites you miglit be. Let me thank you personally, and on behalf of the Fac- ulty, for your good will and co-operation throughout the year, and to extend to you our best wishes for a happy holiday. To those of you who return in September next, we shall give a glad welcome. To you to whom this is impossible, let me say we shall always remember you and follow you in your careers with keen- est interest and expectation. Diplomas granted subject to Supple- mental Examination. 16 VOX COLLEGII And now a closing word to the mem- bers of the graduating class. To say parting words is always a sadness. To say them to a group of graduates with whom one has been closely related and in whom he is deeply interested is a dif- ficult task. For one or two or three rears you have been with us. We have followed vou in your play and social in- tercourse " and study and other college activities with increasing interest. We have seen your lives unfolding, and your nsions and ideals developing and broad- ening in response to the many helpful influences that have played iipon you. You have won the good-will of your fel- low students and the utmost confidence of every member of the Faculty. You have made for yourselves a large place in our college life and have greatly con- tributed to whatever measure of success may have attended the work throughout the vear. . You are about to leave us to go to your respective homes, and ultimately it may be into business, or teaching, or nursing or missionary work or other Christian activity. We shall expect much from you. We shall expect much from you l)ecause we have confidence in you .and believe each and all of you to be cap- able of big and worth-while achievement. .You are going out into a world of sor- row aiid sin and suffering. You cannot escape it. The Allies ' war is our war, and it is your war. It challenges you; it opens its opportunities to ymi ; it bids you to sacrifice and service; it calls to you and you will respond. And in mak- ing that response. I know that you will take with you your finest ideals, your simplest and surest faith, your stoutest heai-t and strongest will, your sunny op- timism and abiding love ; that you may do your whole work and bring joy and gladness and satisfaction to many hearts. As you go forth be assured that you carry with you our veiy best and most sincere wishes. We .shall remember you. We have faith in you, and we shall hope and pray for you " that you may be and do yovr best. Always in His name your best. In the months and years to come, remem ber O.L.C.. Cherish throughout life memories of her and keep in mind that yon shall be always welcome to your Alma Mater. The presentation of certificates and prizes then continued. PRESENTATION OF CERTIFICATES.

The closing address, by the Rev. R. Newton Powell, of Trinity Methodist Church, Toronto, was a powerful appeal to the girls to prepare themselves to be strong and capable Canadian women. His text was. " Get Ready. " Why, he asked, have women suffrage agitations been practically unlaiown since the war began? Because women have resigned themselves to smaller spheres of activity 1 No ; but because the war has given wo- men such a big task that they need ask for nothing more. The change has come about suddenly and of necessity, because of war conditions, but it is to be a per- manent one. The world ' s man power has been and Avill be so dei)leted that women must continue to do work for- merly done by men. Mr. Powell went on to speak partic- ularly of Canada and her need of train- ed women. Canada, he said, is big en- ough to contain all Europe, including 18 VOX COLLEGII Russia. There are as many different na- tionalities in Canada as in Europe. In every vet;tern city one finds sections where the people are living exactly as they did in the old home lands. If these people are not Canadianized, the situa- tion in our nev. ' land of Canada will be worse than that now existing in old Eur- ope. After the war. there will be a great- er influx of foreignei-s than ever before, and Canada must be ready to cope with the situation, for it will require all her strength. The educated woman, with trained mind, repose, and poise, is one of the greatest forces a nation- has. Are our Canadian women ready for their mighty task ' ? In closing. Mr. Powell .sounded a note of warning. Education is always a mighty force, but it may be a mighty force for good, or a mighty foi ' ce for evil. Germany has educated her people very carefully, but she has educated ithem in the doctrine that might is right, and has entirely omitted from her edu- cational system Jesus Christ and His doctrine of love. In His teaching must our education centre, for only by keep- ing in close contact with Him can we be a force for good. And so ended one of the most success- ful Commencement days in the histoiy of the College. THE IDEAL WOMAN. [Substance of an address given by Rev. A. I. Tei ' iyberry, of Hope Church, Toronto, at the May Day celebration, and which was received too late for the last issue] . Mr. Chairman. — If you and I are to embrace the " Ideal Woman " this morn- ing, in our thought, we must consider first her desires in the matter, secondly her mother ' s ambitions, and thirdly, her father ' s plans. This is a rough outline of what we now propose to do. Embarrassing? So many ideal women present. Every husband will think we are meaning his wife, and every lady will think we are very personal in our re- marks. A famous author has said : " There is no such thing as the ideal woman, " yet it may be possible for us to discover such. Maeterlinck in his little book entit- led, " Wisdom and Destiny, " says, " We should live as though we were on the eve of a great revelation, " and it will be well to assume this attitude toward our sub- ject this morning. The first time I was ever requested to give consideration to the ideal woman was when as a probationer on my first cir- cuit the Supei ' intendent thereof inform- ed me that according to the discipline of the Methodist Church no young man should take any steps in matrimonial matters without first consulting his older brethren, that they would counsel him concerning the ideal woman for the par- sonage. This is the second time that I have been requested to think of the ideal wo- man — of course it is not the second time only that I have thought of the ideal woman, but just the second time that I have been requested to think along this line. Just why this time I do not know un- less perchance it was that I had found one myself, or secondly, possibly be- cause of the pei ' il of our days. Is it not true that many girls in these abnormal times are forgetting their ideals? or thirdly, I have thought possibly because your ambition as students is ideal wo- manhood. And if this be true then the words of Shakespeare in King Henry Y. may be aptly quoted in our ease : " For now sits expectation in the air. " When I was a boy at public school some time ago I was unfoi-tunatc enough to have a scrap with one of the girls of the school, and in a moment of forget- fulness was ungentlemanly enough to tell her to hold her tongue. She replied : " My tongue is my own, and I ' ll use it, too " : and she did. The Russians have a saying: " A wo- man ' s hair is long: her tongue is long- er. " That was the case with this girl, and evidently this was the case with the girls of Russia, and unfortunately it is the case in other places also. vox COLLEGII 19 The Good Book tells us : " The tongue is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. ' ' But I don ' t suppose that the apostle is referring wholly to woman ' s tongue. In John Knox ' s home in Edinburgh, Scotland, tourists may see hanging on the wall of one of the rooms a steel frame with a tongue attachment that was used in those early days for putting the quiet- us on woman ' s tongue. I have never had to do that yet. The young lady Avho aspires to ideal womanhood cannot neglect to set a watch over the door of her lips. In the Art Gallery in Edinburgh, Scot- land, there is a famous painting by Sir William F. Douglas. In the background is a large old-fashioned fireplace. In front of it is standing a monk who has been doing some figuring on the face of the fireplace. He has been drawing some figures in geometry, indicative of the highest feats of the human intellect. He has gone as far with his problem as he appearently can go, and is represented as standing in the attitude of supplication awaiting the illumination of the Higher Mind. I do n ot know whether you young ladies have gone as far as it is possible for you to go along the highway of ideal womanhood, but believing that your am- bition is along this line I want to go back again to the outline with which I began this address, only I wish to speak first of ' ' the father ' s plan. ' ' We cannot conceive of ideal woman- hood apart from ideal childhood. ' ' Train up a child in the way he should go, " is the Divine counsel in which we affirm ab- solute faith. As a straight and perfect tree cannot be gotten from a crooked sprig so an ideal woman cannot be ex- pected from a neglected childhood. Prom the moment the father is per- mitted to look into the face of the new- born child, the Divine ideal for that lit- tle life should begin to take shape, and all through the growing period of that new existence the processes of perfection should be going on. A suggestive cartoon one day appeared in a magazine. It was of a father sit- ting behind a rolltop desk with letter files all along the top and piles of unan- swered correspondence on both sides of him, and while he is buried in his work his little boy of twelve years of age ap- pears in the doorway. Apparently he does not know whether to come in or run away. Underneath the picture are these significant words: " A neglected cred- itor. " It is, of course, equally possible for a girl in the home to be neglected in like fashion, but if the child can be thought of as coming from God and is eventually to go back to God, then father ' s highest wisdom is to guide those young feet over God ' s pathways. Father never fails to recognize the Di- vine relation between the plant and the flower, between the tree and the fruit, between the grain and the harvest, but how frequently does it come to pass that Father ignores wholly the Divine prin- ciples of life that should find freest play in the life of his loved one. God certainly has an exhalted thought for every daughter, and it should be Father ' s duty, thought, plan, prayer and sacrifice to promote its fullest develop- ment. We have, secondly, to consider the mother ' s ambition. Mother knows the value of the little life far better than the father, because of her sacrifice ne- cessary to this life, and consequently she is prepared to view it differently from others. Her love is ever outstanding. Every daughter owes much to her moth- er ' s love. In it there is counsel, culture, inspiration and heaven ' s sweetness. Her ambition gives love its direction. In the New Testament we have the record of the mother seeking from Christ the chief places in His Kingdom for her two boys. This is but natural, and al- most every mother will seek it as readily for her daughter as for her son. It has been said that sound health, sound sense and sound character are the three essentials to a strong and success- ful manhood. This we believe equally applicable to ideal womanhood, and this the ti ' ue mother should include in her ambitions. But after all, no matter how much 20 VOX COLLEGII father and mother, home and college may offer by way of advantage, the all- important thing is thirdly, the young wo- man ' s detennination. She may atrophy all these, or she may greatly profit by them. To-day the young woman must find the objective ideal — not as her mother perchance — tliis is a new day for the world and this is a new day for woman. Many must live singly because this de- vastating war has robbed them of the companionship that they had naturally looked forward to. but after all ideal wo- manhood is witliin the realms of her pos- sibilit ies. The ideal woman is first, a wo- man with great ideals, secondly, a wo- man growing unto perfection. Questioning some scholars of a public school one day I asked them what was the most impoi ' tant thing that could be said about the plant in yonder window. One suggested its height, another its form, another its color another its flow- ers, but at last one little girl answered, " Please, sir, the most important thing that can be said about that flower is that it grows. " And it is now true that the most important thing that can be said about any life is that it grows, daily pass- ing on toward perfection. The ideal woman is, thirdly, a woman surrendering herself daily to the fash- ioning forces of God. The Avorld swings heavenward on the hinges of holy wo- manhood. The ideal woman, fourthly, is the wo- man who adapts herself to the times and lives her best. Bishop Quayle recently said: " The day of God is here. Never since the time of Christ has thei ' e been a period so mo- mentous and articulate as the present. We must be big. ' ' My prayer is that you may all measure up to the demands of your day and to the expectation of your Christ. SENIOR CLASS CONCERT. Take your hats off to our Seniors, girls. They certainly deserve credit for their presentation on Friday evening, April 26th. of " An Evening With the Arts. " Before the concert, the Juniors were to be initiated for the second time and they awaited in fear and trembliiig outside the concert-hall door. But, as each one marched in, she received the welcome news that there would not be a second initiation as evciyone had gone through the first so well. On Tuesday the Seniors decided to bring before us in life form pictiares, that we have known and loved. They present- ed these in a series of tableaux. How they held their position without moving a muscle was a marvel to us all, and, when The Dancing Girl, Irma Wigle, stepped daintily out of her frame and began to dance one of our graceful old folk- dances, we could have easily believed that some mischievious fairy was playing a trick with our eyesight. The musical part of the program was ably managed by Miss Meath, Miss Geor- gian Smith, Miss Grace Sykes and Miss Helen Millay. The ])rogram was as follows : Senior Song The Senior Class. Liebestraume - - Liizt Staccato Etude - - Friml Miss Meath. The Girl I Left Behind Me Selected Helen Millay. Elaine on the Barge Dorothy Follet and Lucy Robertson.

We were all particularly glad to have the pleasure of entertaining four of Mr. Atkinson ' s Toronto Club girls — Miss Cork, Miss Campbell, Miss Keeler and Miss Dunlop. The officers of the club received the guests, — Misses Grace Sykes, Vivian Al- cock and Winifred Symington. The con- cert hall looked lovely with its soft lights, wicker chairs and ferns. The splendid program given by the Toronto Club and Mr. Atkinson ' s in- teresting and inspiring talk on " Music " was thorouglily enjoyed by everyone. Mr. Atkinson has every right to be proud of these pupils. We hope to have the pleasure of hearing them again in the near future. We were all delighted to have Mrs. Atkinson and dear little Philip with us ; the meeting Avould have seemed incomplete without them. Light refresh- ments were sei ved at the close. We have many pleasant events to look back upon after leaving our Alma Mater, and foremost among them will always be our visit to Toronto where we were entertained by Mr. Atkinson ' s studio club. On Saturday afternoon, May 18th, a splendid program was given by the following Okticlos girls: Misses Vera Meath, Grace Sykes, Mildred Carse, Viv- ian Alcock, Helen Millay, Georgian Smith and Winifred Symington. The numbers were well received and called for hearty applause. Dainty refresh- ments were served in Mr. Atkinson ' s lovely studio at the close. In the evening, the same girls, assisted by Margaret Homuth and Edna Wake- field, gave a program in the Heliconian Club rooms. We were glad to see so many Trafalgar Daughters present. Each girl was inspired to do her best, and we are told each one succeeded. Af- ter the program, the evening was spent socially, and refreshments were sei ' ved. We were unable to thank Mr. and Mi ' s. Atkinson and the ( lub half enough for their hospitality and kindness to us. A very delightful informal meeting was held in the studio May 8th. The program was a splendid success. The fol- lowing were the numbers. BacJi - - Prelude and Fugue Adelaide Stenning. Beethoven - - - Sonata ■Rena Thomas. Vogricli - Staccato Caprice Mildred Carse. Nevin - Love Song, in A flat Winifred Symington. Cliopin - - Ballad in A Vera IMeath. After a very enjoyable talk on music- ians and their wor k the club adjourned. The meeting held in the studio May 15th was most enjoyable, all examination pupils playing. The program was as follows : Sextette— G. Sykes, H. Taylor, B. Walls, V. Alcock, 0. Lampman, M. Carse.

On Wednesday evening, May 29th. the final meeting of the year was held with nearly all members present. Miss Max- well and riss Emsley also honored us with their presence, much to our delight. The meeting opened with the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting, after which Georgian Smith played the Waldstein Sonata very beautifully. Miss Maxwell told a very interesting story of this sonata which was taken from Joseph Vance. Olive Lam]unan then gave a very splendid rendering of a Haberbier Etude, and Yon by Pictro John. INIiss Jlaxwell gave a synopsis of the poem. In Gondolier, by Browning, which is connected with the Chopin Nocturne which Mr. Atkinson very kindly played for us. We were all very much pleased to have the rare pleasure of hearing l)oth Miss laxwell and Mr. Atkinson. The President made a few interest- ing remarks upon the work of the Studio Club during the past year, and spoke of the great interest Mr. Atkinson had taken in the Club and of the comradeship which existed between us. Mr. Atkin- son spoke to the girls for a few moments, after which Miss Maxwell said a few words. The meeting closed with the singing of ' ■ God Save the King, ' ' and the girls were all loathe to leave even then the room in which we have spent so many pleasant evenings. We are indeed indebted to our Hon- orary President and esteemed teacher for his great kindness and the careful, thought-out work he has done on our be- half. Congratulations to Adelaide Stenning, Mildred Carse and Winifred Scott, on the recent intermediate exams. Mildred received first-class honors ; Helen Millay and Rena Thomas received honors in their Junior Piano. We wish Georgian Smith the best success in her coming L. S. exams. It was with pleasure and anticipation that we greeted four of Mr. Blight ' s To- ronto pupils when they came down to sing for us on Thursday evening, May 2nd, and we were not disappointed. The artists, Miss Lydia Knapp, soprano; Mrs. Geo. .Scott, contralto ; Mr. Wm. C. Rut- tan, tenor; and Mr. Chas. Shearer, bari- tone, presented " The Golden Threshold " by Liza Lehmami, and all agreed that Mr. Blight indeed had a right to be proud of his Toronto stiidcnts. Miss Vera Hag- erman accompanied the quartette in her usual sympathetic manner. Miss Vera Mcath and IMiss Georgian Smith assisted in the concert, j)laying several most en- joyable piano numbers. The program was as follows : Cliopin - - Balad in A flat Miss Vera Meath. Song Cycle The (xolden Threshold Liza Lehmann Poems by Sarojini Naidu.

One of the most enjoyable and appre- ciated concerts was given in the gymnas- ium Wednesday evening, May 8th by vox C 0 L L E G 1 ] 23 the following artists : — Estelle Carey, so- prano; Valborg Zollner-Kinghorn, pi- aniste; Arthur Blight, baritone: Vera Hagerman, aecompaniste. The program was tastefully selected with numbers that appealed to evei-y girl and visitor present. Their evident enjoy- ment was shown by their hearty applause to which the artists were very kind in responding. The program was as follows : PART I. Calm as the Night - - Goetz Estelle J.

Everyone was especially glad to have Miss Nicholls play for us again. We were also glad to hear Miss Banks play for the first time. The Tirogram was as follows : Moskowshi - Valse in A Miss Banks. Beetlioven Andante and Variations Funeral March from Op. 26 Miss Nicholls. Bacli - Toccata and Fugue in D Miss Georgian Smith. Mendelssohn Andante and Variations Miss Dorothy Follett. Chopin - Ballade in A flat Miss V. Meath. A very fitting unveiling speech was made by Miss Grace Sykes who unveiled the picture of Paderewski which was pre- sented to the studio by the club of 1917- 18. Mr. Atkinson ' s talk added greatly to our knowledge of the present standing of the war. THEORY. Miss Nicholls ' theory pupils are all very busy preparing for their examin- ations which will take place late in June. Miss Nicholls has ever shown an untiring interest in the welfare of her pupils, and they wish to convey to her their sincerest appreciation for all she has kindly done. VOCAL. On Thursday evening, April 25th, in the concert hall, a recital was given by the pupils of Arthur Blight, assisted by Dorothy Follett and Mildred Carse, pu- pils of G. D. Atkinson. The program was as follows: Duet.— " I Waited for the Lord. " Vivian Alcock, Rena Thomas. Solo. — " Why. ' ' Dorothy Johnson. Solo. — " Habauera " (from Carmen). Felicia Holmes.

Mr. Bliirht ' s students (more especially those who tried their examinations) wish to express their deepest appreciation for his untiring interest and assistance throuEjhout the year. As for Miss Hager- man, words cannot express our sratitude for all she has done for us. We have found her a true friend, indeed, ready at any time to assist the rls and to pfive helpful suggestions. We wish both Mr. Blight and Mivss Hagerman a very pleas- ant holiday. CHORAL CLASS. On Commencement Day, June 12th, the Choral Class took part in the morn- ing exercises and rendered the cantata they had been working on so diligently for some weeks previously, quite excel- lently. Several of Mr. Blight ' s pupils had solo parts, each one well suited to their respective voices, which were in splendid trim for the occasion. As ail encore the class sang the beau- tiful anthem, " List the Cherubic Host, " with Mr. Blight singing the baritone solo and Vivian Alcock the soprano ob- ligato. The Choral Class was not as large this year as pre ' ioiisly and toward the end many of the members found their stu- dies so heavy that they were obliged to give it up ; but, on the whole, we had a very successful year. The girls wish to extend to Miss Hag- erman their appreciation of her untir- ing interest in the Choral Class. Her accompaniments were always full of life and it was the greatest pleasure to sing to them. We extend our best wishes to the gii ' ls of next year and hope that they may en- joy studying with ] [r. Blight as we have done. COMMERCIAL C LUB. For the closing meeting of our club iMiss Thompson very kindly arranged to have Miss McMann, from the Under- wood Co., of Toronto, come down and address us. She outlined the work of a stenograph- er in a bright, interesting way, which made us all very anxious to try it. Then, too, she pointed out the finan- cial advaiitages of taking the complete course and of not trying to take a posi- tion until you are thoroughly efjuipped to take a first-class one. We were not able to hold as many meetings of the club as we had hoped this year, but we feel sure that the 1918 class will be able to hold many interest- ing meetings now that it lias successful- ly got its foundation. Wo wish them every success. To Miss ThoTupson we wish to extend our hearty thanks for the great interest she took in the club and for her endea- vours to make the meetings successful and interesting. DOMESTIC SCIENCE. After the final examinations, closing seemed to shut right down upon us and before we knew it. Commencement Day had come and gone. The four Domestic graduates had to say o-ood-bye and part after their very happy year together, and such distances as there is between us ! One in Saskatch- ewan, one in New Brunswick and the other two with good distances between each other in Ontario. But still I am sure we can look back at one another during the year with nothing but pleas- ant memories. For we enjoyed our var- vox COLLEGII ious classes together and spent many happy times in the domestic kitchen dur- ing our formal and informal meals. We have much in our happiness to thank Miss Gibbard for. She came to us as a complete stranger but ere long she was well known and heartily liked by all. In her own work we found her ever ready to help us outside of our hours, and taught us many little touches which add- ed in the appearance of our cooking, etc., and was more than kind when any of her number were ill. On behalf of her four graduates, the Junior Class and the Home Makers, I wish to extend to her our hearty wishes for her future happiness and success. For Cupid has shot his arrow, and our Miss Gibbard shall soon be " no more. " The Senior Sewing Class had a won- derful exhibit this year. Under the very able supervision of Miss Phelps, the girls had beautifully made silk lingerie and dainty blouses and dresses. Miss Ruth Dixon won the prize for the best cook- ing and sewing in the department, and Miss Muriel Maw won the Gold Medal for the highest standing during the two years in Household Science. The Juniors and Home Makers also had a splendid exhibit in sewing and hand work. Dainty pink silk lingerie was shown as well as hand embroidered towels and socks. Besides these there were beautifully laundei ' ed towels, etc., and books with neatly made patches and darns. ' This work was under the careful supervision of Miss Gibbard, and brought many comments from many who saw them. I am quite sure all those who took any work in the Domestic Department this year will not feel her year wasted, but will think of it rather as a gain to her. and will go home feeling as though she knew a great deal more about the neces- sities of the home, and the things which go to make the home a success. REPORT OF PATRIOTIC WORK. The patriotic work was continued un- der the same type of organization as last year. Circles were formed which met for sewing or knitting on Saturday af- ternoons from 3.30 to 5.30 o ' clock, with the following leaders: — Jessie Bucking- ham, Morden Busby, Marjorie de Pen- cier, Vida Luno, Muriel Maw, Georgian Smith and Hazel Taylor. The honorary members of these circles were : — Miss Granger, Miss Thompson, Miss Emsley, Miss Chantler, Miss Phelps, Miss Ball and Miss Walker. The three circles de- serving special mention for the amount of work accomplished are those led by A ' ida Luno, Georgian Smith, and Hazel Taylor. The total amount of work done during the year by these seven circles was as follows: — Eighteen stretcher caps, ten trench caps, fifteen sheets, sev- enty-four wash cloths, twenty-four hand- kerchiefs, forty-six cotton binders, eight- een cheese cloth handkerchiefs, twenty- two pairs of pyjamas, fourteen ties, thir- ty-six pairs of socks, and nine house- wives, each containing a lead pencil, but- tons, needles, thread, shoe-laces, scissors and some chocolate. These articles were all sent to our soldiers. The folloAving articles were sent to our sailors : — Seven- ty-four pairs of socks, one muffler, and twelve comfort bags, each containing — one pair of socks, one muffler, writing paper and envelopes, cigarettes, playing cards, chewing gum, tooth-paste and tooth-brush. These articles were all made of materials purchased by contri- butions given the circles. Forty-seven pairs of socks were also sent to our sail- ors as Valentines in February. Unor- ganized work of the students, sent for the most part to individual friends, was as follows: — two hundred and seventy- four pairs of socks, seven sweaters, three pairs of wristlets, three scarves and one cap. Unfortunately there is at hand no record of the very large amount of work done by the faculty, nor of the boxes sent overseas by the faculty and stu- dents. FUNDS COLLECTED. Trafalgar Day, Brit.

Past this point getting up to the net becomes down right hard work, requiring every ounce of strength and stamina in your body. And some times when this fails you just can ' t get up to the net and are forced into a defensive game. Shredded Wheat can ' t get people up to the net. It is not a miracle worker, but it can and has done its part in putting players in con- dition to see the game through, which is the most important consideration after all.

It is extremely easy to digest and nutritious to a high degree. It is a good, satisfying cereal food, which is about all that one should demand. MADE IN CANADA BT The Canadian Shredded Wheat Co.
