In those hurried closing days the members of the Vox staif found it very hard to seek out some quiet corner, and armed with pencil and paper, to strug- gle in solitude with Vox material. Bitt they all did — 6very one ! We had many plans for the Vox this year, but unfortunately they did not all materialize. The year passed so quick- ly, and we were all so busy, that before We realized it, the opportunity was gone. So this issue is already begin- ning to fade from our memories, and the written record will restore their clearness — and once more the Senior prophecies will warm our hearts as they did on Class Day. And if we begin to sigh over depart- ed days, there is something to which we can all look forward eagerly — Mr. Farewell promised us an Old Girls ' Week-end. It will indeed be a happy time, both for those who act as host- esses and for those Old Girls who joy- ously endure the hardships of the Whit- by bus to pay a loving visit to their Alma Mater. Aiid even the ones who live so far away that the journey is impossible, will have a share in the good time, for they will be with us in our thought, and we in theirs. So it is not " good-bye " but " till we meet again. " THE FOOT-PATH TO PEACE. To be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to work and to play and to look up at the stars ; to be contented with your possessions, but not satisfied with yourself until you have made the best of them ; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, 2 VOX COLLEGII and to fear nothing except cowardice ; to be governed by your ambitious rath- er than by your disgusts ; to covet noth- ing that is your neighbor ' s, except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners ; to think seldom of your ene- The Graduating Gladys Anderson.

This year she continued her work and also studied shorthand and typewriting. She is now graduating in Domestic Science and will Bot be retui-ning next year but in what- mies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ ; and to spend as much time as you can with body and with spirit in God ' s out-of-doors — these are little guide-posts on the foot-path to peace. — Henry Van Dyke.

Last year, Catherine ' s first in our halls, she took her Junior Matriculation and was also one of our rising Junior vocalists. Despite her much heavier course this year she seiwed on the Executive of the Honour Club and also entered into var- ious sports. " That ' s pretty good, eh? " (Cather- ine ' s favorite expression) fully expres- ses her habituallv cheerful outlook on life. Now at the end of our school year and ' Catherine ' s last with us, we reluctantly retimi this " small but valiant " M.E.I., to her beloved Lachute. She will be greatly missed by us all and we hope as she goes through life she Avill have eveiy possible success, and not forget the manv friends she made for herself at O.L.C. Fern Colborne. Fern was born in Toronto, then spent several years in the Ottawa Valley with her grandfather where she attended pub- lic school. Before coming to O.L.C. Femie as we like to call her spent two yeai-s at Jaiwis Collegiate. Since coming here she has done well in Commercial work in which we ' v ' ish her eveiy success. Grace Cook. Grace came to O.L.C. last September from Waterford, clutching her music role, and announcing that she was going to study for her A.T.C.M. with Mr. At- kinson. She studied with Miss Jessie MacGregor prior to her coming to Whit- by. Next year she is planning to con- tinue her Musical studies with either Mr. Hewlett or Mr. Wright, and teach at home. We wish her every success in both teaching and her study. Her favorite saying is " Sure! Yes — Of Course! " Beatrice Gerrie.

She came to this college in 1915 and during that year and the fol- lo ving one she took up Academic wovk receiving her Junior Matriculation. The third year she returned to take Junior Domestic Science in which she was very successful. Last year to the regret of her many friends she did not come back but she was most Avarmly. welcomed this year by old friends, and quickly made many new ones. She has been a real worker, always ready to help. She has held the office of Vice-President of the Senior class and also that of Vox representative for the Art Club. As she graduates and goes out this year from her Alma ' Mater she carries with her the best -wishes of all the girls for success in whatever work she may pursue. Favorite expression " Piffle- — Oh De r. ' ' Margaret McIntyre. Margaret first saw the light of day in Hillcrest, Whitby, and has resided there ever since, passing both Junior and Honor Matriculation in the Collegiate Institute.

' ' Dottie ' ' was born at Hamilton where she attended the Collegiate, passing her Junior Matriculation. She was a suc- cessful worker on the " Vox Lycei " staff. She continued her excellent work when she came to us two years ago, being elected Editor-in-Chief of the " Vox. ' ' She was also chosen as Secretary of the " Okticlos " and Sei ond Vice-President of the Choral Class, which positions she filled most capably. Last year " Dottie " . took her A.T.C.M. in vocal, winning the gold medal. This year she is graduating in piano, having passed her examination with honors, and also winning the silver medal. She is President of the Seniors and an enthus- iastic member of the Choi ' al Class. We are all sorry that " Dottie " is not to be with us next year as we shall all miss her sweet smile and charming man- ner. We wish her every success in the future years, and " May she like the onions be well wed. And like the cabbage come out head, And like the corn be dressed in silk, And come to the top like cream on milk. ' ' Favorite expression ' ' Oh ! I ' m so mad I could spit! " Lillian Mulholland. Lillian Mulholland claims Toronto as her birth place and has lived in that city ever since, with the exception of the past two years she has spent at O.L.C. Lillian has just completed her two year Commercial Course and has been very sucessful. She is treasurer of the Commercial Club and has held that po- sition well. We expect Lillian back next year to take Music and advanced Commercial work. We all wish her every success in her work for the coming year. Favorite, expression " I can ' t get my speed in shorthand.

Her pet expression is replaced by a ' ' Chuckling Giggle. " ' Dorothea Snider. Dorothy was born at Kitchener where she lived ' for a short time. She then spent three years at Mount Forest, after- whieh she moved to Flora, Avhere her public school education was begun. About six years ago she moved to To- ronto and attended Oakwood High School until she came to us in Septem- ber. 191 8.

Dorothy holds the position of " Vox " Editor, which she fills mr.st -Trlm Tfiblv, and is also a member of til n vw C A. Cabinet. 6 VOX COLLEGII Our real appreciation of her splendid spirit and fine qualiti es was shown on May Day, when she Avas chosen as one of the Councilloi-s. We wdsh her success in whatever life-A -ork she may choose, and feel sure that we shall, some day, be even prouder than we are now, to think of Dorothy as an old O.L.C. girl. Favorite expression " Oh. it ' s aw-ful! it ' s gh-ast-ly! " Dorothy Sorby, Dorothy was born in Guelph and has lived there all her life. She took her collegiate education there and came here last year taking up the Home Makers ' Course. This year she pursued hpr course further taking Senior Domestic Science and also Intermediate Piano. Owing to illness, her examination has been delayed Init we feel sure she will ])c successful. We wish her all success in whatever -work she chooses after leaving college. Hobby — Measles and Bacteriology. Favorite expression " Honestly, kids. " Adelaide Stenning. Adelaide claims Coaticook, Que., as her place of birth, but now She rbrooke claims her as a resident. Adelaide came to us four years ago, after receiving her first knowledge, as it were, at " The Ac- ademy " in Coaticook. Since coming to Whitby, Adelaide has taken High School work and studied music with Mr. Atkin- son. This year she made the final grade and passed her A.C.T.M. with Honors and as Silver Medallist. As Vice-Pres- ident of the Honour Club her services have been indispensable. " She may be small, but she ' s mighty. " Pet expression: " Mv dear, I nearly died! " Frances Stevens. Frances Stevens, who was bom in Montreal 18 years ago, went to Miss Smith ' s School at Ottawa. Since com- ing to O.L.C. Frances has played a prominent part in everything. Last year she took part in baseball, basketball and .swimming. She was the very capable President of the Commer- cial Club in both Junior and Semoi- years. As we all know, Steve excells in singing. She has passed with honoi ' s, her Junior and Intermediate Vocal Ex- aminations, and last year received 1he medal for the highest standing. But Frances did not only study Commercial and Vocal. She has also made a success of piano and we hope that she will con« tinue to do so. Nor can Ave ever forget that this same sweet Frances was our May Queen. We know that long after she leaves here the memory of one of the happiest days of her life— May Day — Avill remain in her inind as in ours. Her favorite expression " Oh, Johu, are we really r-u-in-ed! " Laureen Terryberry. Toronto claims " Terry " now as a citizen, but Port Rowan is noted as her birthplace. Before coming here she at- tended school in Preston, where she lived for some time, and also Havergal College in Toronto. Last year ' ' Terry ' ' came to Whitby and took her Matricu- lation, coming through with only one star, but that did not hinder her from trying one better this year, and so she took her M.E.L. jWhile here she has been very active in all lines of sport, and has presided over the Junior Class and also Athletics. Next year, " Terry " hopes to go to University in Toronto, and we wish her all success. Her pet expression " Nothing makes me sick ! " May Webster. May is one of our Western girls, com- ing to O.L.C. from Calgary. She was bom and brought up in that city and matriculated from the Calgary Colleg- iate Institute. May was enrolled here a a student in the Senior Domestic Class. Throughout the year she has shown true school spii-it. May was Secretaiy of the Athletic Association and was chos- en Counsellor to the May Queen. We wish May every success in whatever course she may pursue in the future. Favorite expression, " Oh, say! " vox COLLEGII 7 Commencement Week Thursday, June 3rd. Commencement week began on Thurs- day evening with a recital by pupils of Miss Bi-ush and the Vocal Department.

Class Day came at last, that day of all the year when Seniors, clad in cap and gown, seem to receive all the honours. It was looked fonvard to with the greatest excitement and we were not to be disap- pointed either in the weather or the ceremonies. Each gi ' aduate ' s face was alight as the procession of twenty -two linked by a beautiful chain of bridal wi-eath proceeded do vTi the stainva - from Upper ] Iain. AVhen they reached the bottom of the staira the school was lined up on each side of the hall, and with a few appropriate words the Sen- ior President, Dorothy Morden, pre- sented a beautiful set of chimes to the School, a o ' ift from the Senior Class of 1920. Follo dng this ceremony, a link from the chain was cut as each fair graduate ' s biography was read by the Junior Presi- dent, Jean Leishman. The Senior song was then sung with a good deal of en- thusiasm, after which the President ex- pressed in a few words her appreciation of the co-operation which had been mani- fested in the Class dui-ing the whole year, and the honour she had felt in being its President. But even more than this, she washed to express appreci- ation of the class teacher. Miss Ball. She had been evei ' i:hing that could be desired — a girl among girls, a Senior among Seniors, and an inestimable ex- ample and help to the members of the Class. As a very slight token of es- teem. Miss Ball was then presented with a gold wrist watch. She replied very suitably, and emphasized the note of harmony which had existed between the class and teacher, the class and school, . and wished the graduates every success in the future. A short address was then read to fhe President by Jeannette Higginbotham : To the President of the Senior Class : Representing the Senior Class I take this opportunity to show in a very small way our great appreciation of yoiir splendid leadership during this year. It has meant so much to us to have such a competent and energetic President and we feel that our success as a class is due, in a great measure, to your -capability. We fully realize the responsibility which has rested upon you and the time you have spent in the interests of the class. The past year we hope has been as much pleasure to you as it has been to us and we wish you every success in whatever you may undertake. ' ' The prophecies were the next great item of interest and the graduates listen- ed attentively while their futures were revealed to them. Dorothea Snider then read the vale- dictory as follows : At six o ' clock a hungry lot of Seniors assembled in the drawing-room, and when dinner was announced withdrew to the Domestic Science Dining-room, where the Juniors had prepared a ban- quet. The table was very tastefully de- corated in the class colors — coral and black, using wi ' eaths of honeysuckle and paper streamers. It was a very merry dinner party and the menu was something not soon to be forgotten. The dainty salads and ices displayed some clever thinking on the part of the Junior Class, for the color scheme was can-ied out even in these. Everyone then made a hasty change into middy and bloomers and gathered on the lawn aroimd a never-to- be-forgotten bonfire. Each gi ' aduate put her most hated subject into the fire, and recited a suitable (and original) versb, watching the book slowly fade into grey ashes, never to return. Merry songs, accompanied by ukeleles, filled the night air and finally closed by an im- pressive singing of " Auld Lang Syne. " It was with deep regret that this won- derful day came to a close, and we •would like to say, " Three Cheers for the Juniors. " " It usually is difficult for one to voice the thoughts and feelings of twenty but to-day it seems an easy task. Al- though our work has been so different, and so many different activities have taken up our time throughout the year VOXCOLLEGir 9 I think just now, the thoughts of all our minds and the f eelings nearest to the hearts of all of us are very much alike. In a beautiful sense of the word we are sisters, drawn close together in love and gratefulness and loyalty to our Alma Mater; and while we say " good-bye " to her, our " gracious mother, " our hearts .are very full. Perhaps the strongest feeling there, is one of thankfulness ; thankfulness for the happiness of our life here together ; for the high ideals to- ward which we have here learned to strive ; and for the friendships we have formed. We want to try to express our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Farewell, whose kindly interest, patience and encourage- ment have meant a great deal to every •one. To Miss Maxwell whose constant graciousness, strength and wisdom have made her a living example to all of us ; to all the members of the Faculty for their untiring efforts with us and their •cheering helpfulness. And to the Juniors, our comrades, the :sisteirs who next year will be standing in our place to say good-bye. Our life to- ;gether with you has been very happy. Perhaps sometimes our responsibilities .as Seniors have separated us from you .a very little, but through all this year your splendid loyalty and friendship have helped in more than we can say. With your staunch co-operation we have upheld the old traditions and done our best to be worthy of the responsibilities laid upon us. Now we pass traditions and responsibilities on to you. May your Senior year be as hannonious and as sweet as ours has been ! In our hearts, too, there is a feeling of Tegret. The thought that our school -days are over, that next year we will not return and others will play and work in our beloved halls is always with us, in these closing days. Every hour comes the realization that we are doing some- thing for the last time. But mingled Avith the regret there is a feeling to -which we can give no name — which we -can only describe as a kind of passion- .ate determination to " keep faith. " It :is this which takes the sadness out of our farewells, for we feel that we are taking with us the greatest and most precious part of our school life. The ideals of loyalty and sei-vice and of noble woman- hood which we have learned to love while here, have become a part of us, ourselves. Wherever we may go our great desire will be to live worthily of this our Alma Mater. And always the remembrance of this place will bring back lovingly, " As a sweet memory to women ' s hearts, Their days of maidenliood. " Tuesday. Tuesday, Trafalgar Daughter ' s Day, dawned, not ' ' bright and fair, ' ' but dull, damp and unpromising. However, we relied on that never-failing prophecy, ' Riain before seven clear before eleven, ' which came tme and banished all our fears. At last the afternoon arrived. With eager interest we watched the bus diivc up to the door and saw a goodly group of the Trafalgar Daughter from To- ronto step out. At four o ' clock the Senioi s, twenty in all, were ready to meet their ' ' big sisters, ' ' the older grad- uates of the College. After a few min- utes spent in getting acquainted. Miss Brush entertained us in a most delight- ful manner at the piano, and Miss Al- cock, as usual, greatly channed us with a vocal solo. Mrs. Farewell then brought in the baby, Frances Claire, who was pre- sented with a gold locket by the Trafal- gar Daughters. After the meeting, re- freshments were served and a half -hour spent in pleasantly chatting, meeting ncAV friends and renewing old acquain- tances. In the evening, the whole school, a very excited crowd of girls, assembled in Upper Main Hall. " Why the excite- ment? you ask. One or two might an- swer that it was their last night in O. L. C, but the majority would tell you that it was the night of the play, " Twelfth Night. " For weeks, we had been waiting for this in expectant anti- cipation ' and now the eventful night had arrived. 10 vox COLLEGII Once in the Concert Hall, it seemed hours before the curtain rose, — and then — well it would be quite impossible to attempt to describe the characters or to say how gi-eat a success the play Avas! AVe all extend our heartiest congratu- lations to Aliss Ball and the Dramatic Club. COMMENCEMENT. DAY, WEDNES- DAY, JUNE 9. Commencement Day was all that could be desired, and brought a splen- did year to a beautiful and fitting close. The sunny, eventful hours passed so swiftly that not until sunset, when our guests had all departed, did we realize that there was packing to be done, and there were many lingering good-byes to be said in the short time before we sepa rated.

Principal Farewell ' s Closing Words to the Graduating Class In closing, I would say a special word to the members of the Graduating Class. It is, if I may say it, from the school standpoint, a matter of deep regret to see you passing out of our college halls, where we have become so happily fam- iliar. You are the largest Graduating Class since before the war. You each and all have done most creditable work in your respective departments through- out the year and easily deserve the hon- ors of gi ' aduation, which are now youx-s. By your splendid class spirit and school loyalty and generally fine conduct on all occasions, you have won the full ap- preciation of the members of the Fac- ulty and a sincerely warm place in the good-will and affection of your fellow students. By your willingness to carry through any offered suggestion making: for the welfare of the school and by your own initiative and effort in many directions you have been to mo as Prin- cipal a real strength throughout the year Bnd I shall ever remember with " gratitude the fine spirit you have al- ways manifested. i have said we deeply regret your de- parture. And yet we would hesitate to. detain you. By the law of progress you should all go out into a life of larger opportunity and greater privilege ; some into the more complex and comprehen- sive life to the university ; some into the wider field of business; others into the great teaching profession and still oth- vox COLLEGII 13 ers into your home communities, where because of your life here you will nat- urally assume among your fellow young people places of leadership and power. In these spheres of larger service Ave look to you to fail not. A thousand voices will call you. Some you will do well to heed ; some you will do well not to heed. Learn to discriminate between the voices, answering only to those which lead to duty and privilege and service, and which alone make for the develop- ment and strengthening of your finest traits of character. Ever remember the motto of our Hon- or Club : ' ' She conquers who conquers herself, " and weave into the very fibre of your being its underlying principle — " Privilege carries with it responsibil- ity. " These things do, and. you will be supremely happy and your lives will count for high and. noble things. The school will continue to think of you; we shall trust you and rely upon you to always carry her standards high. The beautiful chimes which you are so generously leaving behind you, will ever remind us of the good-will and harmony and sense of duty which have ever ac- tuated you. Our prayer from day to day shall be that God may wonderfully keep you and bless you and cause His face to shine upon you and help you to he and to do your best alway. The Prophecies GrLADYS AnBERSON, 1935. One day I casually wandered into a theatre in New York where a large or- chestra was playing. The first thing that attracted my attention was the fact that the pianists was a lady. Shortly after- Avards, I obtained a progi amme with tho names of the various members of Profes- sor Butinslvv ' g orchestra. To my sur- prise the pianiste ' s name Avas Gladys Anderson. Curiosity and interest led me to seek an interview AAdth the accomp- lished lady. After the symphony con- cert, as I Avas led up to her, I began to recognize her as the same Gladys Avho graduated Avith the Senior Class of 1920. Girls, you would never have recognized her. She was quite stout, and her chub- by fingers had all they could do to stret- ch the octaves, nevertheless, she seemed quite a capable member of the orchesti ' a and had every promise of success in the future. Blanche Bass. I was seated in the front row of the Gaiety Opera House, Toronto, waiting expectantly for the curtain to rise on the famous musical comedy, Carmen. I Avas very much excited as the Avell-known Canadian prima-donna, Blanchette Bas- sino AA as paying her first visit to her na- tive land after studying vocal for many years in China. The audience merely stood the opening choruses for all eyes and ears Avere open for the entrance of the Star of the occasion. Finally she appeared — a thunderous roar of ap- plause burst out as the tall and boldly handsome Carmen strode in and burst into a powerful flow of melodious Avarb- lings. I sat spellbound listening to each magic note, but it Avas not until the art- ist sang one of Jones popular songs for an encore that I came to myself, and T came Avith a jolt — for there before my eyes I recognized my old schoolmate, Blanche Bass. Indeed, it Avas the same Blanche, tall and muscular Avith piercing • black eyes. I Avas filled Avith excitement and sent a note to see if I might speak Avith her af terw:ai ' ds. She very graciously sent Avord that she would grant me flA ' -e minutes. I did not have opportunity to hear much of her story in that short time but gained a fcAV facts concerning the change in her career. It seemed that, unknoAVii to the rest of us, Mr. Blight, A ocal instructor at O.L.C., had been wild about her voice and had advised her strongly to give up everything but vocal. So she had Avorked for years and had 14 VOX COLLEGII now reached the height of her ambitious. " But, " she said, with a sigh, " I have had many an uphill battle. One of my chief difficulties was getting accustomod to working with men. I could not get over the dislike of having any men in my company but of course one must sac- rifice one ' s feelings for Art. ' s sake. ' ' She then told me that she Avas tired out after a heavy season and was going to spend the summer cycling through the Berk- shire Hills with a dear old " friend. Dorothy Bayne. It was in 1932 that I Avas walking past a private school in a small villa-gc in Quebec and noticed by a sign on the gate that A ' isitors Avere always AA-elconie. HaAnng a few hours of leisure I decided to call at the school. I Avas surpnsed to find that the principal AA-a.s a short, stout Avoman, but my astonishment AVas beyond description Avhen I recognized this ladv as my old class-mate at O.L.C., Doi-othy Bayne. She had changed greatly but of course I easily recognized her by the stye on her eye. During our conversation I learned that Dorothy had opened .this school for basliful yotuig men and found it very in- teresting to instruct the fair creatures in languages and sAAnmming. After a short pleasant dsit I left Dorothy to continue her pleasant life of ser-vice. Ola Bennett. I Avas travelling in the West in 1930 and w hile in Brandon, Man., my friends there told me of a new hospital I must see before I returned East. • So one afternoon Ave Avcnt to the Hos- pital. It Avas a fine building — one of the finest I had ever seen. After going through th e many corridors and room-j the doctor, Av ho Avas our guide, now told ns to come to the Dental Clinic. This rvas odd. I thought " a dental clinic in a hospital " — but I said nothing. This building Avas equally as fine as the Main building Ave had just visited, and Ave had a little more interest in it than the other perhaps because it was a novelty to me. Opening a door and peeping in caut- iously our guide told us we might go in here and look at the ftne yiew from the AvindoAv. This room he explained was the " head ' s. " While admiring tha scene aa ' c heard some one come in and we all turned in the direction of the door. Here Avas another surprise. The " Head " evidently Avas a lady and yes, I looked again. It Avas Ola.— Ola Bennett who graduated Avith me at O.L.C. in 1920. Our looks met and each exclaimed the other ' s name in a breath. Then Ola explained to me that after graduating from the Royal Dental Col- lege of Toronto, in 1921, she had gone on Avith the Avork in the ITniversity. Since then she had been head of this clinie Avhich had been opened that autumn. Jessie Buckingham. It Avas my first visit to Ncav York, and, although the days of my youth were far behind me, I was determined to enjoy myself in spite of rheumatism, brought on by hard labor and self-denial, earning those dollars Avhieh noAV enabled me to stand on BroadAvay. I Avas very timid but as I gazed upon the passing crowd I decided Avhat I should do with some of my hard-earned pennies I Avould buy myself a goAvn Avhieh, when arrayed in it, Avould make me feel that I was one of the gay thrcng. I therefoi ' e, still yery timidly, made inquiry as to a very ex- clusive modiste and Avas directed to " The Snappy Dressers " which, I was assured, Avas quite the most exclusive of exclusive emporiums. Once inside the magic doors of " The Snappy Dressers " establishment I felt completely dazed — and the thought cros- sed my mind that I had never seen so much gilt or so many large mirrors. I expressed my wish to a very obliging young AVoman who murmured that she Avould sec if Madame Jesse were disen- gaged. She then glided away and I wait- ed for Avhat seemed at least an hour. At last I heard a faint rustle, perceived a more than faint odor of perfume, looked up and Madame Jesse was before me. It was then that I really began to feel ner-- vous. Madame had ciuite an engaging way. She begged me to follow her to a vox col: private room, and I felt myself drawn away, following her imposing form as if it were a magnet. There was a large ex- panse of black satin gown of the style which made one wonder if it had been fashioned on Madame or if Madame had been poured into it in a liquid state and hardened there — on investigation I de- cided it must have been the former as even the most vivid imagination could not picture Madame melted. When within the fitting compartment I had a better chance to view my com- panion, as she bustled about bringing out one vision of beauty after another. I was very silent and observed her thoughtfully. Where had I seen that generous form and face before 1 The face I studied carefully, and through the dis- guise of a New York complexion I dis- cerned a resemblance to an old school- mate of mine. How well did I remem- ber that Senioi " Party so many years ago — when my classmate, Jessie Buck- ingham, so capably fitted upon me a gomi of paper. My courage rose — " Madame, " I began — " Did you ever attend " Ontario Ladies ' College? " She smiled slightly, in a blase manner — then probably realizing she might do damage to the carefully arranged coun- tenance, quickly resumed her former face. " Indeed yes, " she replied — " It Avas in those days that I received the inspira- tion to establish the world-renouiied ' ' Snappy Dressers. But that must have been long after your time. " Here she gave her marcelled straw-colored hair a complacent pat with be-ringed fingers and glanced coolly at my gray hairs. I felt them increase tenfold in that mom- ent. She resumed her business manner — I resumed my dazed, helpless feeling — it even increased as time went on imtil T found myself on the street in front of " The Snappy Dressers " minus $500 plus a new dress which I have since lack- ed courage to don. I heaved a sigh — Jassie never had such taking ways in her school days. Catherine Burwash. In 1930 while on a tour through Lon- don, Eng., my eyes caught sight of huge posters which appeared to be advertising a world-renowned circus. As we were all out just for a pleasure trip, we became quite interested in the bill, so slowed our ear in front of one of the advertisements to find out in more detail what it miglit be. It proved veiy thrilling so we pro- cured tickets at the nearest store and im- mediately proceeded to the circus grounds. Throngs of people were crowding the gateway and appeared to be making their way towards a tent at tlie other end of the grormds. On approaching we found it to be a throwing contest — 3 throws for 5c. On closer investigation the tall pereon — (I could see that she was tall by the sha.dow through the tent) — seemed very familiar to me. The balls were flying rapidly with only a second to spare but the face which was very thin and pointed, dodged just as quickly. Well, I watched for fully fifteen minutes and still could not discover where I had seen that face before, but all of a sudden a memory of O.L.C. came across my mind, and a story which one of the girls, Catherine Burwash, had told me in my college days, of how it was her greatest amlntion to have a position like this. She must have seen me and got excited, for the next ball that was thrown hit her square on the nose, so that she was un- able to continue for at least 30 minutes. I raced behind the tent and managed tO ' speak to her for a few minutes, and Avas so glad of the opportunity. We hope that Catherine will have every success in her chosen calling, and that some-day she may be leader of such a AA ' onderful band. Fern Colborne. In 1950 while touring the East on my third honeymoon I had occasion to spend the night in a small Central-African vil- lage; an extremely remote and uncivil- ized place, but interesting none the less. After having partaken of a meagre and not too appetizing evening meal I 16 VOX COLLEGl 1 became curious to learn something of this strange place so leaving my better half to smoke a languid and solitary pipe or so, I set out into the deepening twil ight. Presently, attracted by the flickering light of what later proved a bonfire, I came to the centre of the town — what in our country vould be termed the market- place — and beheld a strange and inter- esting spectacle. A huge bonfire flamed in the centre of a large open space. Na- tives huddled in various attitudes of re- spectful attention clo.se beside it, while standing in their midst a tall and impos- ing figure spoke rapidly in a high and powerful voice, accompanying its re- marks by vigorous and emphatic gesti- culations. I listened in awed silence for a few minutes, then suddenly realized an astounding fact. The speaker was em- ploying what sounded very niucli like my own native tongue! I drew nearer and looked inteiitly at the central figure of this strange group, and tliis is what I saw : — A tall, angular woman of perhaps fif- ty years of age dressed in severe high- necked long-sleeved l)laek, with iron-gray hair pullecl tightly back from an intel- lectual forehead. Steel-rimmed spec- tacles upon an haughty, high bridged nose, grey eyes which snapped and shoiie with a zealous bi-illiance which rivalled the. fire itself and an earnest, emphatic manner, which seemed to be holding the natives ' attention even against their wills. As I listened to the impassioned avcU- chosen flow of words it became apparent that the missionarv (for such she un- doubtedly Avas) was conducting a class in Bible Study with a zeal and capaliil- ity which bespoke long practice. Then as I gazed with ever increasing interest and respect the compelling voice ceased, the piercing eyes became fixed in a stare of utter astonishment and I realized all at once that I had imconsciously stepped into the firelight and now stood in full view. Before I could draw back into the shadows and retreat I heard my name called in a tone which suddenly awoke long-sleeping memories, the missionary came forth with outstretched hands and 1 fell into the arms of my old class-mate Fern Colbome. After the first rapturous greetings were over I asked Pern all the ' ' How ' s, whys and wherefore ' s " and she told me in a few brief words. It seems that she had begun to feel that she had a special gift for teaching Bible Study while yet a student at 0. L. C, and had ofter held inspiring classes in her room on Lower Frances — to the veiy great benefit of lier school- mates. This faculty had increased aft(;r she graduated in 1920 and had finally caused her to leave home and friends lie- hind her in the interests of her high cal- ling and seek the wilds of Africa as h(. ' r field of endeavour. She had finally leaehed this little inland town had met, converted and married the Mayor and was now continuing her good work with rapidly gi ' owing success. Beatrice Gerrie. In 1930 while motoring through one of the large cities of Italy, my attention was aiTested by a woman sitting by the side of a hvirdy-gurdy. She was dressed in the native garb of the Italian and ad- orned from head to foot in bright col- oured beads. She was singing a lullaby to an infant who was screaming at the top of its lungs and it was impossible to tell which was making the more noise. But loud as the voice was it sounded strangelv familiar to me. At " the other side of the hurdy-gurdy stood a big, black, formidable looking Italian who bellowed at the -girl to hurry and get the child quiet so that he could play the organ. When the first song failed to soothe the child the mother tried another which I recognized with amazement to be Mr. Atkinson ' s lullaby which I had not heard since leaving College. My curiosity was aroused even beyond fear of the terrible looking Italian and I determined to find out who this Italian woman Avas. This was not such a diffi- cult thing to do as I had expected, for as she raised her big black eyes to m- vox COLLEGll 17 T recognized my old friend Beatrice Ger- rie. Jeannette Higginbotham. June, 1935. Dear Bea: — Such a surprising thing happened to- day. I was motoring throu ' gh a wild, mountainous part of British Columbia and our car broke down so we made our way to the nearest farm house for shel- ter. The farm house was neat and modest looking. On the verandah was a baby in a carriage, and a little girl gently rocking it. We rap pod upon the door and a smiling faced little boy answered and politely bade us enter and be seated. The I ' oom seemed very homelike and the odor of Irish stew and Johnny cake pen- etrated our nostrils. Shortly the door was opened by a stout, matronly woman who was clad in a neat gingham house dress, covered with an allover kitchen apron. Our eyes met ; a glad smile of recognition lighted both our faces ; and Bea, who do. you think this husky farm- er ' s wife was! None other than our old friend Jeannette Higginbotham. Jean- nette has changed in many ways. The first thing I noticed was her hair; for in place of her beautiful marcel and puffs was a tight knob on the top of her head. But later, when she seiwed lunch, the old-fashioned stew and cake gave place to her girlhood fancies, such as lady fingei ' S, croquettes, almond wafers and charlotte russe. Jeanette has only six children, but they are hale and hearty little creatures. I was so pleased to find Jeannette so happy in her rural life, and she surely makes a good wife for her husband and a capable mother to her little brood. I knew you would be interested in Jean- nette and also surprised to hear of the extraordinary change in career and girl- ish desires. As Ever Your Friend, May. Margaret McIntyre. In 1940 Avhile motoring through St. Guilomme, Quebec, the ear suddenly stopped in front of a large convent. Finding that it would take some time to make repairs, I wandered over to a group of nuns in the convent garden. A low, sweet voice attracted my atten- tion and turning I saw the Mother Su- perior talking to one of the nuns. What was there about that tall, slender figure that seemed so familiar, I wondered. Surely that noble though slightly stern face was one not easily forgotten. Then as she advanced with a courteous ques- tion on her lips I remembered Margaret McIntyre, could it be possible? But as I heard her laugh at my incredulous look I knew for certain who it was. Af- ter talking for some time I gently hinted that I Avould like to hear her story. She hesitated — then said that she had tired of the worldly life she was leading. Men to her were as nothing, so she had sought peace in the convent. " Are you con- tented? " I asked. " Perfectly, " she re- plied, and with that I turned and walk- ed back to the car. Dorothy Morden. In 1932 as we were passing the Market Square on • York St., in Hamilton, I heard a familiar voice speaking in the midst of a large gathering. I sought out the vo ' ee and it seemed to be coming from a leader of the Salvation Army. A tall, dark, stern-looking woman, her hair was t ' ght back from her forehead and ears and she had her little finger ciirled up so much you would abnost think it was stationaiy. It was Dorothy Mor- den ! After the meeting I made my way to her, and she was delighted to see one of the ' ' old girls. ' ' She told me she had been leading the Salvation Army for four years and was very much interested in it. Lillian Mulholland. When I was in Philadelphia in 1940 I noticed a huge manulacturing plant on one of the main streets. " Mulhol- land ' s Magnificent Sago " was prtnted in flaming letters on all four sides. The name sounded very familiar so I inquir- 18 VOX COLLEGII ed within and learned that a tall, cap- able woman dth hair parted in the cen- tre and dra vn tightly back as Presi- dent of this eonceni. Desserts were man- ufactured under the most scientific man- agement. This person had been so en- thusiastic and interested in her investi- gation that she rested neither day or night, until she had unearthed the bril- liant discoveiy that a delicious dessert could be concocted from a combination of sago, eggs, milk, and sugar, which re- sembled sti-ougly the well-known " fish- eyes " peculiar to O. C. L. This brought back pleasant memories of 1920, and. thinking of this, 1 recognized in the President my old class-mate, Lillian Mul- holland. Lill ' an, having in this way amassed a great foi-tune, devoted the ro- maiiider of her life to church work. Cora Olmstead. One hot summer day in the year 1930, I happened to be in Welland and, pa-s- sing by the school there, I noticed a group of students going through some familiar exercises. The teacher had her back turned toward me but as I drove near I heard 1, 2, 3, push; (swing left 2, 3, 4) — what else could it be but Em- erson exercises? And. approaching, I saw that unmistakable white bone haii-- pin which could belong to no other than my .school mate of 1920, Cora Olmstead. At O.L.C. she had learned " Push " (as it was always known to us) ; she had taken such a fancy to it and realized so greatly its remarkable qualities that she had de- cided to teach it to the poor unfortunate children in Welland who were not able to attend either O.L.C. or Emerson Col- lege. Cora was looking well and said she was enjoying her work very much, but she was in a tremendous huriy for one of her boy friends had .just driven up in a Stutz ; and after dismissing her class she said good-bye to me and drove hap- pily away. Dorothy Sarjkant. AVe prepare our future in the present, so we fully expect Miss Dorothy Sar- jeant, our Gold Medallist in piano, in a short time to have her A.T.C.M. ; A.O.- C.M., and L.T.C.M., in not only piano, but vocal, organ, violin, banjo, theory, accordeon, mouth organ, and Jew ' s liarp. In 1930 she will receive the coveted po- sition of teacher in tlio Tonmto Conser- vatory Branch newly established by Mr. G. D. Atkinson, on Mars. She will also assist Mr. Atkinson in his study of native music. We confidently expect the result of their labours to revolutionize popular music. Dorothy says aerial service is so swift — no tiresome Avaits at little spots like Pickei ' ing — and so handy to Toronto, too. Dorothy Snider. In 1927 I visited a friend in Vancouv- er city. While driving through the park we passed some ladies who were also siglitseeing. One face looked familiar and just then one of our group remarked that a steamer had just come in fi ' om China. I was immediately interested and had the driver take us back. Upon a secojid look ' I recognized none other than Dorothea Snider who had gradua- ted in 1920. I made myself known and found upon inquiry that she had spent four- very successful years in C ' hina but owing to too constant application of her kindness had overtaxed hei ' strength and was home on furlough. We chatted a- bout 1920, our class officer ' s, members and students of the school. Dorothea contemplated spending a week end at school and conducting a conference. However there AVPr-e other things to tell of gr-eat importance too! The sun was shining and a something very bright on the thii-d finger of her left hand caught my eye. She ' blushed a deep pink! I wished her many, many years of happin- ess. Dorothy Sorby. I was travelling on the continent in 1930 and happened to be spending a day or two in Paris. I was alone at the time, waiting to rejoin our party and did not car-e to stay at a large hotel so Avas recommended to look up a " Hostess HoiTse " on " La Rue de Vogue. " I had vox COLLEGII 19 some difficulty in finding the place but was made very comfortable upon my ar- rival. When the hostess made her appear- aiiee I noticed that she was a very moth- erly sort of person, quite stout, weighing probably 200 lbs. She had a great head- ful of blonde hair and a round full face wreathed in smiles and dimples. When I had registered she recognized my name and then made herself known to me as Dorothy Sorby, late of O.L.C. I must say, the only strangely familiar feature that I would have recognized was a peculiar little twinkle of the eye. I learned while talking to her that she had a " Costumer " department in connection with her Hostess House and she did most of the designing. I was surprised to hear that she didn ' t do all the sewing herself. Dorotliij cthraijs did love seiv- ing. Her establishment was very up-to-date and very well patronized by Canadian tourists and she seemed to enjoy her woi ' k. I enjoyed my brief stay there so much and promised to recommend the place to any friends who would be visit- ing in Paris. Adelaide Stenning. I happened one day in 1930 to be at a horse-race. The horses were making the final home-stretch. All eyes were upon the winner, and the rider of that winner to me looked strangely familiar, so after the race I went down in order to get nearer to this strange jockey. I noticed that she was very tall and thin; so tall, in fact, that her legs almost dragged on the ground when she rode It was flien that I recognized my old friend Adelaide Stenning. I asked her how they ever happened to take one of her size as jockey. She replied that as she was such a. wonderful horsewoman that they had overlooked that fault. . She could only give me a very ievr minutes, because after each race she had to rush straight to the hairdresser ' s as she felt that she could never win unless her hair were perfectly marcelled. Just before I left her she informed me that she spent her evenings ballet-dancing in a down-town Cabaret, and gave me ' a pass to go every evening, for which I was very grateful. Frances Stevens. In 1935 I was touring through the States, and wishing to see the San Fran- cisco exposition, I went there first. Pas- sing through the midway, I chanced to see the advertisement of a verj stout per- son now on exhibition to the piiblic. Af- ter paying my ten cents, I proceeded further, and found an extremely short, fat lady sitting on a large chair. Some- thing about her seemed strangely fam- iliar. I had just turned to go, when suddenly, she smiled, that engaging smile, and I knew instantly, it was Frances Stevens. I talked to her for a while, and learned that after lea ang 0. L. C. she had kept house, but the work had been so strenuous that it made her very ill. It was as a result of this ill- ness that she " had grown so short, but yet so fat, and was now travelling witli a company in the midway. Really, her face was so fat that I would never have recognized her, had it not been for that smile. At the time, she was wearing a sweet, simple, and girlish white dress. Laureen Terryberry. After Terry left O.L.C. she never rest- ed until the achievement of her great am- bition. At University she entered Hon- our Classics. After graduating she took the course in Dental Nursing, and later her A.T.C.M. in piano. Then she mas- tered the arts of miUinery and dress- making. But all these were merely in- cidents in her career. All the while she was training and toiling towards the realization of a great dream. In the Marathon race at Antwerp in 1932, Teriy was listed as one of the con- testants. A great pavilion at the end of the course, decorated in light and dark blue, was thronged with excited O.L.C. friends. At last a slender, swiftly-run- ning figure appeared in the distance — far ahead of the others. It was Teriy ! 20 VOX COLLEGII The crowd went Anld. Cheers rent the air. But just then a terrible thing happen- ed. Nearing the goal, her face flushed with A-ictory, she suddenly swei ' ved to one side and fell, at the same time shriek- ing out, " Italian Balm! Italian Balm! quick, quick, the Italian Balm ! " It was the old. old ston — the horror ' Avhich had haunted her day and night at O.L.C. — the inevitable fate of the underfed min- isters daughter.

While touring through Africa in my " I -Land-There " ' Plane. I determined to visit my old college friend jNIay Web- ster. True to my resolve I landed in the intei ' ior and ti ' ied to calm myself, as I saw her coming towards me. breathless, but the same as ever. May ' s old difficulty of not knowing which of her talents would lead to success had been her great- est failing and she had been rouglily hurled from one vocation to another in a fruitless endeavour to achieve woi ' ld fame. A gi-aduate of Symonds, Sargent and Emerson, the insatiable May still sought knowledge. In 1933-34, while travelling through the Orient, she had been deprived of all American magaz- ines ; but on reaching the c oast she en- tered a bookstore where, among a dusty pile of English papei ' s, she saw the be- loved reddish brown cover of the At- lantic Monthly. Snatching it up rever- ently, she eagerly devoured the most pro- found articlcK. She Avas inspired ; a vis- ion of her life ' s Avork came before her — a vision of May as dietitian to the Hot- tentots, " and here I am, " she said smil- ingly. Although modest May did not tell me so herself, I have heard that ;she has completely reformed household con- ditions in Africa. As I soared aloft I had a vision of May looking almost regal ; the centre of a grinning, devoted band of little Hottentots. The Senior Dinner " The true es.sentials of a feast ai ' e fun and feed. ' ' At the " Senior Dinner " on April six- teenth, Ave not only had ' ' fun and feed ' ' but realized to a greater extent than eA er before a feeling of friendliness and loyalty to each other and towards our Alma Mater. Our bright, cheery dining-room looked quite festive. The senior table in the centre of the room, A nth a large gold basket filled Avith Orphelia roses; and streamers in the class colours, coral and black, extending from its handle to the corners of the table, was quite effective in its beauty and dignity. The Faculty table at the upper end of the dining- room, the other classes along the side and the loAver end, each table decorated in its class colours, all looked as if they were about to boAv to that exclusive table holding the central position in our din- ing-i ' oom. The students of the various classes had assembled and Avere standing when the Graduating Seniors entered, preceded by Miss Ball, their class teacher. We real- ized as they came in, that it would be their last formal dinner together, only a few more social gatherings, then they Avould be separating; divided by distance and different goals of sucess. After a delicious dinner, a number of toasts followed. Mr. Farewell acted as toast-master. When the toast to the King had been proposed and replied to, Lily Austin, in a few Avell chosen phases proposed a toast to " Our Countiy, " to which Isabel Fisher royally re- sponded. The next was to our Alma Ma- ter, and love for our school filled our hearts as May Webster proposed the vox COLLEGIl 2 toast aud Hazel Taylor answered it. Other toasts wei-e to " the Faculty " by Catherine Burwash, replied to by Miss Maxwell, to " the Graduating Class, " proposed by Jean Leish- man, to which Miss Dorothy Morden re- sponded. Cora Olmstead then pro- posed a toast to " other Classes " answer- ed by Misses Reta Kerslake, Irene Carse, Shirley Leislunan, and Iva Worden. Frances Sevens next proposed one to the " Student Organizations, " Lau- reen Terryberry, Cort. Reynolds and Adelaide Stenning replied. The last toast was to our worthy ' ' College Pa- per, " proposed by Lilian Mulhol- land, responded to by its editor, Doro- thea Snider. All the speeches were worthy of their subjects and gave ns a greater under- standing of how the graduating girls ap- preciate the years they have spent at O.L.C. They are leaving it with love, loyalty, and gratitude. The time spent Avithin the College has been a gi eat factor in broadening out their lives, ed- ucating them, not only in their chosen course, but fitting them in eveiy possible way for their after life. A fitting climax to the evening was when the entire Faculty and student body formed a large circle around the room, then joining hands, sang " Auki Lang Syne. " E. H. The Senior Party Each girl gazed admiringly around the gymnasium that Friday night of May the twenty-first, when she went to Senior Party. There Avere plenty of soft cushions and easy chairs for everybody. Coral and black, the Senior colours, de- corated the apparatus and lights, and eveiybody felt that the room could not possibly have looked more cozy. It Avas rumoured that there was to be dancing so all the girls Avere busy get- ting their " dances taken " when the Seniors appeared. It was then that the children of O.L.C. stood back amazed when the strange paper dolls marched in. No Avonder, because the costumes were all sorts of coloui-s, and even the faces Avere covered. This, however, was for the purpose, as we soon learned, of finding out who was the best guesser in the school. EA eryone thought and thought, but before many of our Senior friends Avere recognized Ave were asked to hand in our results. The best guess- er proved to be Helene Alhvorth, Avho roceiA-ed a dear little KcAvpie dressed in coral and black. Then our Seniors took off their paper faces and sang for the first time in Pub- lic their song, Avhich Avas vei-y cleverly sot to the tune of Burmah Moon. The A " ords Avere as f oIIoavs .- — When Ave say (just as a confidential) That Ave ' d like to talk about ourselves For just a moment, this is what We ' ll tell you And it ' s AA ' ell you KnoAV that Ave ' re quite modest and re- tiring ( really ! ) May Ave say (just as a confidential) That we think Ave ' re rather up-to-date quite jazzy. Animated, educated. All to brilliant futures fated. True to Alma Mater, and to 1920 Senior Class! One encore did not really satisfy us but bright music then took our attention from it and everyone entered into the enjoyment of that. There were moon- light dances, tag dances and every kind of dance, Avhich were all enjoyed im- mensely. The corner in Avhich the punch Avas situated Avas certainly avcU patroniz- ed. By and by refreshments came. De- licious sandAviches and coffee and then ice cream and little cakes. By the time all this Avas enjoyed it was pretty late and so all the O.L. Cites Avent happily to bed. We take this opportunity of telling 22 VOX COLLEGII Miss Ball and the Senior Class -what a how much each one enjo ■ed herself, wonderful success their party was and ' " M. T. The Faculty Play On Friday, April the thirtieth, as sudden and unexpected as a bolt out of the blue sky. a little notice appeared on our bulletin board — " The Faculty play Saturday evening. ' ' We were all excit- ed and curious as to wliat it was to be but no amount of ciuizzing of the teach- ers rcA-ealed the secret. And so it was with great surprise and delight that we beheld the following night on our pro- grams. ' " The Cricket on the Hearth. " ' From start to finish the play was a delight to all of us. Of course, the fact that the actors were our teachers made us A-eiy interested spectators, but out- siders would have been channed and held by the splendid acting. No one of the cast can be singled oat for special approljation. All were splendid. Miss Elliott as Dot and jNIiss Wright as her husband, John Perribingle, were a veiy devoted pair. The expression Dot used the most frequently was " Me too, Jolin. " Miss lelvin as Tilly Slowboy was a source of unending amusement. She entered right into thei part and never seemed to for- get it for an instant. Miss Wallace and jVIiss Brush were very good as old Caleb Plummer and his blind daughter. Ber- tha. Can any of us ever forget ( aleb as he sang " We ' ll drown it in the l)owl? " ) Miss Archibald took the part of the old gentleman who afterwards turned out to be Caleb ' s son, and Miss Dowsou was his demure sweetheart. Miss xMaxwell, in a " lovely, old fashioned gown, as Mi ' s. Fielding was the very imiiersonation of dignity. " That very unfortunate affair in connection with the Indigo trade. " jMiss Murchie, as Mr. Tackelton, strode around in true villain fashion, her only trouble being her slipping moustache. Miss Carruthers as the Porter, ] Iiss ITol- lard and ] Iiss Spence as Dot ' s father mother only api)eared for a few minutes at the end of the play. The performance ended with a rousnig old-fashioned dance, Miss Archibald, Miss Dowson, Miss Elliott and Miss Murchie being the participants. We were so delighted by it all that even God Save the King failed to send us away and we stayed till Miss Ball, the director and stage-manager of the play added the finishing toixch by saying " Well, it ' s all over, ladies! " Avhich remark brought us back with a jolt to the everyday world and sent us. reluctantly to bed. May Day Still another, and yet more glorious, Twenty-fourth! Of course, the weath- er could have been improved upon — but then, too, it might very easily have been much Avorse ; and, after all, the weather is one of the least impoi ' tant considera- tions on an occasion like May Day. As for the other elements necessaiy to the making of a Perfectly Happy Day (per- fect enough to be written in capitals, too!), they were all conspicuously pres- ent. To begin with, the address, given by Dr. Edna Guest, was of the most help- ful and inspiring kind. Dr. Guest paint- ed for us an Ideal Woman worthy in every way of the title. The voting, which immediately followed the address, was, of course, the scene of the wildest possible excitement and suspense — rising to a joyful climax when the name of our May Queen was finally announced. This very great honour fell to the lot of Frances " Stevens — commonly known as " Steve " and, as such, veiy highly e - teemed and well-beloved by her school- vox COLLEGIl 23 mates. Following the election of the May Queen, the two Councillors were chosen ■ — Dorothea Snider and May AVeb- ster, two worthy and highly-regarded citizens of our school community. Then the three " Royalties " withdrew to pre- pare for the ceremony, while the girls lined up for the Grand March. This was executed most creditably, and was followed by the ceremony of the day — the crowning of the May Queen. It was very beautiful and impressive as the Queen kneels and repeated the oath — to follow faithfully the highest ideals of womanly excellence among her loyal subjects, by whose election she was en- dued Avith the rank and dignity of May Queen. After the crown — a very lovely one of blossoms and spring flowers — was placed upon her head, she rose and stood while the Queen Regent, Hazel Taylor, presented to her the May Queen pin. This pin is handed down from one May Queen to the next, and each one wears it for a year. Then the Queen Re- gent received her permanent pin, which is presented by the Trafalgar Daughters of Whitby, following which the Royal train proceeded slowly up the lawn be- tween the double line of kneeling girls, to the throne. Then the program, which had been prepared for the honour and pleasure of the Queen, took place. This year, as usual, the program consisted of drills, gymnastic exercises and dances, all which Avere splendidly executed, and was closed by the May-Pole dance, performed in costume. Then the Queen and her subjects, to- gether with the guests of the day, with- drew to the dining-room, where the Royal Banquet was served. And then — the picnic — and dignity to the winds! Pour big hay-racks piled with jolly girls in the best kind of holiday mood drove to Gorbett ' s Point on the lake shore and held festival in honour of the Queen, Avho had discarded her crown for a not too modish but very comfortable sport hat, and her royal robes for a very familiar and also comfortable tweed coat, but who was, nevertheless, still very much our chosen Sovereign! The woods were carpeted With violets and the marshes crowded Avith marigolds, which afforded the most pleasurable sort of oc- cupation until tea time. Then — well, need one describe a real, live picnic, or go into details concerning the fate of the (fortunately plenteous) refreshments? Then, the hay-racks once more, with plenty of laughter and singing, and the sort of drowsy happiness which marks the end of a Perfect Day ; then, home— - dishevelled, loaded Avith Avild-flowers, and supremely satisfied with life in gen- eral, and May Day in particular. In spite of the rather cool and clomiy w eather many interested spectators, in- cluding several from Toronto and Ham- ilton, were present ; while an interesting innovation was instituted, in the form of a moving picture machine which record- ed all the activities of the morning. These pictures are now being shown in the Toronto theatres and are said to be very good. D. M. Trafalgar Daughters The following letter from Dr. Hare was read at the annual meeting at the College, on June 8, and at his sugges- tion and the request of the Trafalgar Daughters, we are publishing it here: — Dear Miss Fothergill : — Mrs. Hare and I are delighted to send you in behalf of the Trafalgar Daughters a few Avords of greeting for their annual meeting. Though separa- ted in body We are not separated in sym- pathy and affection, and shall on June 8th, think of you all, and share to some extent in your pleasure and inspiration. 24 VOX COLLEGII The fact that we liavo been away for some years from the active work of the College has only heightened our interest in everything pertaining to student life. The very pranks and mischievous epi- sodes are viewed in a new and charitable light, and the one thought that stands out prominently as Ave review our many and A-aried experiences during our long College career is the noMc generosity of girl life. Anything like a decent effort to deal fairly and kindly with young women is sure to come back in good wishes and friendly acts. Mrs. Hare and 1 feel deeply gi-ateful that our lot was cast in. the Ontario Ladies ' College, and that we were able to take some part in pro- moting its great advancement and suc- cess. Taking everything into considera- tion there are few Colleges if any in this country, that furnish an equal record of healthy and continuous growth. A- mongst those Avho were devoted to the interests of the college, from the Faculty standpoint, and Avho have gone to their reward T A ' Ould like to mention the names of the Bev. J. E. Sanderson and IMiss Adams : amongst those Avho have re- tired from the staff and are still loyal and true to College aims and ideals I shall mention Mr. Greenwood, Miss Burkholder, Miss Copeland. Miss Web- ster, and many others Avho Avorked early and late to make college training effic- ient, and thex-eby uphold the honor and good name of the College. It is to be hoped that Avhen the college jubilee ai " - rives many of these old friends may haA-e health and may find time to Avend their AvaA- to the old college buildings to renew the friendships and fellowships of days that are gone beyond recall. The continued growth and Avidening influence of your Society are facts that I like to think of. I can recall the many occasions Avhen it Avas my privilege to extend to you all a hearty welcome to the college at your annual gathering;-., and I feel certain that my friend and successor, Mr. Farewell, Avill be equally wdvm and sincere in his Avelcome. 1 liave good faitli in the pennanence and expansion of your Society. The fact that your aims are so commendable and altruistic Avill sanctify your companion- ship, and make you mutually helpful to one another as Avell as to your Alma Mater. A lofty purpose is nature ' s best antiseptic against any disagreement in the intimatei relations of any organized Society. I have been greatly pleased to hear of your meetings during the year in your homes, of the sustained interest in these meetings, both socially and intel- lectually, and of what you have been doing to improve the appearance and at- tractiveness of one of the college rooms. These little artistic touches from your loving hands Avill cheer and strengthen the hearts of those that now bear the re- sponsibility of college nianagement, and will better fit your college to do a great part in the education of the young wo- men of this day. Please accept in behalf of Mrs. Hare a.nd myself our heartiest good wishes for every member of your Society and please convey the same to every membcT of the college staff. I remain. Yours Sincerely, J. J. Hare. Music MoNA Bates ' Recital. On jVtonday evening. May 3rd, one of the finest concerts of the year Avas held in the Recital Hall of the College, when JNIona Bates, of Toronto and New York, gaA ' e us a piano recital. Miss Bates is an exceedingly fine pian- ist, and is well knoAvn in Toronto music- al circles, and in New York, where she is Mr. Emest Hutcheson ' s assistant. Miss Bates Avas visiting her home in Toronto, and returned to New York the vox COLLEGII day after her recital here, so we were indeed fortunate to have her visit the College. Miss Bates ' programme Avas as fol- lows : — Pastorale Scarlatti Caprice Gluck-Saint-Saens AValdstein Sonata Beethoven AllegTo con brio Introduzione — Adagio molto Rondo— Alleffretto Moderato Three Preludes Rhapsodie F Sharp iMnor Hungarian Nocturne Minstrels Invitation a la Valse Chopin Dohnanyi MacDoivell Grieg Dehussy Weher-Tausig After the programme the Senior mu- sic students met Miss Bates in the draw- ing room, where refreshments were serv- ed. Examinations. The music examinations were held on Wednesday, June 2nd, and great was the excitement throughout the School. As expected there were, as usual, no failures. The medallists in the A.T.C.M. exam ination were : Vo«al— Gold Medal, Beatrice! Gerrie. Piano— Gold Medal Dorothy Saj ' - jeant ; Silver Medals, Dorothy Morden, Adelaide Stenning. The highest standings in Intei-mediate examinations were : Vocal- Gwendoline Klombies. Piano— Mar jorie Kisby. Congratulations to all the music stu- dents Avho did so well. The Theory examinations will be held on Friday and Saturday after Com- mencement. Great are the fears among the Theory students but we are sure all will get along wonderfully well. We are sorry Miss Nicholls has been in such poor health, and hope she will be feeling much better next year. The Theory students are greatly in- debted to Miss Campbell for her great interest and help in their work. She has made that bugbear. Musical History, ex- tremely interesting, and made those stu- dents studying it wish for about six months more to completely conquer it. The pupils of the school are all ex- tremely soriy that Mr. Arthur Blight finds that he will no longer be able to come to the College. Our best Avishes go with him in his work in Toronto, and we hope he will not soor_ forget the O.L. C. Miss Hagerman, too, will be missed most sorely hy the girls, but we are cer- tain that she will not forget us, and will occasionally, at least, long to be back in the College halls. The Okticlos has had a pin designed which its present members proudly wear and which will be worn year after year by the new membei-s of the Club. Not least among those wearing it is Mr. At- kinson, who proudly decleares that peo- ple Avill think he belongs to a secret so- ciety now. The Okticlos wishes the members of the Faculty and the students a ver happy summer. NoKMA Moore. As the year draws to a close and we look over the activities of the various school organizations, the work of the Y. W. C. A. takes a prominent place in our minds. All branches have been of pleasure and profit to everyone. Y. W. C. A. The Sunday evening chapel services in the last few weeks have held every variety of interest and benefit for us. On Sunday, May 23rd, the school was visit- ed by Mr. Taylor Statten, whom many of the girls had had the pleasure of 26 VOX COLLEGII hearing before. Mr. Statten spoke in the Methodist Church at the morning service, giving an introduction to his evening talk on the subject of choosing our vocation. In the afternoon those who desired had the opportunity of meeting ]Mr. Statten and informally dis- cussing his subject. In the evening his address was ven- mucli enjoyed as his topic was one in which all the girls are keenly interested. On the 16th of May the speaker was an American, Dr. Gilbert, of who spoke on ' ' Brains, plus or minus. ' ' The subject, as may easily be imagined, was of very great interest to everyone. One of the Chapel ser •iccs whicli will be longest in the memories of the girls, especially those who are leaving the Col- lege this year, was the Sacramental Ser- vice held on May 30th. This Avas the first time in the history of the school and at the desii-e of the whole student " body, everybody partook of the sacra- ment. It was a most impressive ocasion and v. " ill linger long among our memor- ies. The regular weekly meetings of the y. W. C. A. have heen Avell attended. The arirls bave been addressed bv mem- bers of the Faculty and students. On one occasion we had the privilege of a short address from the Kev. Mr. Wright. The girls appreciated very much Mr. Wright ' s kindness in coming. to speak to the organization that evening. His re- marks were taken fj-om the word " right- eousness " and the text " Seek ye first, " started the girls on a veiy interesting line of thought. At two other meetings Miss Wright and May Webster gave most inspiring little talks. The Cabinet and members of the Y. W. C. A. feel very grateful to those who have helped so generously in the work of the Association. The last meeting of the year took the fonii of an election for the officers of the coming year. The girls Avere greatly delighted that the President of this year, Cort. Reyn- olds, Avas able to accept her re-election to that office for next year. Elva Has- kett Avas elected Secretary and we are sure that, although the Y. W. C. A. has been a signal success this year, it will continue to increase in influence and poAver during the year to come. For the past two montlis, the work )n the Commencement Play, " Twelfth Night, " has taken the place of the reg- ular meetings of the Club. As this Avas a difficult play the Club felt they could not spend too much time upon it. At the undergraduate recital, June 4, the Expression girls contributed two numbers, Helene Alhvorth read one of Beatrice Herford ' s exquisite monologues entitled " The Sociable Seamstress. " This number Avas presented Avith vitality, sin- cerity, and an appreciation of the quaint humour that delighted the audience and drew from them expressions of real ap- preciation. The second number was con- tributed bA Florence U ' ren. This num- ber Avas taken from " The Weaver of Dreams ' ' by Myrtle Reid. The portray- al of the character of the old lady who had taken her first lesson in Parliamen- taiy law Avas done by Florence in a most pleasing manner as was shown by the response of her hearers. We regret very much the illness of Elva Haskett, Avhich prevented her from appearing on this programme. The graduating members of the Ex- pression Class, Cora Olmstead and Mai- garet Mclntyre took their places on the program given by members of the grad- uating class. Cora Olmstead read in a very pleasing manner from " The Little White Bird, " by Sir James Bariy, while vox COLLEGII 27 Margaret Mclntyre read a very hum- ourous number from ' ' Penrod and Sam ' ' by Booth Tarkington. On acGount of taking the highest marks throughout the school year, as -well as the highest in the test examina- tion before Miss Wellington, who has charge of the expression department at St. Margaret ' s, Margaret Mclntyre was the Commencement reader, and winner of the gold medal donated and presented by Mr. R. C. Hamilton, President of the Board of Directors of the College. We wish the graduates success and hope to see the juniors all back next September to complete their course. H. A. Commercial On the afternoon of April 21st, the Commercial Club and the Sophomores, accom.panied by their respective class teachers, met in the Common Room, the former club having challenged the Soph- omores to a spelling match. The sides were chosen by Irene Carse as Captain of the Sophs, and Frances Stevens, Cap- tain of the Commercial team. Miss Ball kindly consented to dictate ■ the words which by the way were quite out of the ordinaiy. The match progressed very rapidly and the sides keeping quite even. The vietoiy of the Commercial is due to Edna Kerr, who spelled doAvn two op- ponents. Afterwards the girls gathered around the grate fire and enjoyed chat- ting for a while, then light refresh- ments were sei ' ved. On May 28, a very bright and pleas- ant aftea-noon, a group of probably twenty girls were seen wending their way along dusty roads towards Oshawa. This group was the Commercial Club girls. Miss Thompson, ajormer teacher, as guest of honor, and Miss Archibald, the Class teacher. On reaching Oshawa a short while Avas spent in sightseeing, then partaking of a light lunch at Welsh ' s. The girls reutrned bv tht? 7.45 p.m. G.T.R. train. The Commercial Club girls enjoyed a- veiy ' pleasant afternoon on June 4th, when Miss Thompson, of Whitby, was a charming hostess at afternoon tea. Miss Wright, of the College, assisted Miss Thompson. 0. Bennett. I found a rose one eager morn E ' er yet the sun was high ; How cool it was, how beautiful ! And then, I know nof.why, - I said, " Ah no, I may not steal The crimson bud of you. So fair you are, so rare you are. Yet one thing will I do. " And so, while ye+ the mom was young. E ' er yet the dew wa,s fled. I kissed the bud, the beaii iful ; And lo! the rosebud said, " I am the lips of her you love; Behoved, watch me now! " — An-d 0 my true love stood by me With roses on her brow. Our term in Art came to a very de- ]i?-htful close on Saturday, 5th, when af- terrioon tea was served by the Club in the ( " Vawing room. The walls were made pvt emelv attractive by .the numerous bT ' ht colorr-d paintings of the year, wliilo in one corner stood a large ase fil- 28 VOX COLLEGII led Avith beautiful hand painted china. Miss Maxwell poured tea in her usual eharming manner, while Miss Wriglit and our President, JMildred Cole, proved very delightful hostesses. The contest- ants of the swinnuing meet especially found the tea enjoyable. There is very promising Avork by the Junior Art Students and that of the school classes, particularly the entrance class, deserves honoroble mention. The studies of squirrels and birds add a new note to the exhibition and the outdoor sketches remind us of our many sunny May days. The quality of the drawings this year is especially high, and one feels assiired that a splendid foundation has l een laid for next year ' s fdfk. In the Keramie department good work has been done, both in design and wox ' k- manship. J. HiGQINBOTHAM. Household Science One can hardly believe tliis is the last issue of Vox. Our year has been so short, most pleasant and happy. Sub- jects, which at the beginning of the year sounded so awesome and difficult to study, are now finished, and there is no doubt but that we found our examina- tions a test of our ability. The sewing is being brought quickly to a finish and Mv. Atkinson ' s studio will look like a bazaar, Avhen we have our garments on exhibition. The truly great event of the year for each was the tinal luncheon for the Juniors ; and for the seniors the for- mal dinner with the breakfast and lunch- eon following. May it be said, that, as a proof of our practical practice, all were successful. Miss Dowson has been a SATnpathetic helper in overcoming the difficulties of uneven and over-balanced menus. At the luncheons two girls served ori the same day. The hostess did the cook- ing and had a maid for serving in the dining-room. With the Seniors the hos tess had both cook and Avaitress. The hostess prepared the dining-room, the china, the silver and decorations. These latter in every case were of pretty, deli- cate colors which blended well together. At each meal a representative of the Faculty was present. After the final dinner on May 31st and the final lunch- eon the following day, all the Senior Do- mestic girls enjoyed a clearing up of the dishes and tables. We fully realized that no more would we enjoy together tlie mastering of unknown palatable delicac- ies. The china was put in the cupboard for the last time and to the Junior Clasps we pass the best of wishes for a year as happy and with as much good fellow- ship as we enjoyed in 1920. J. Buckingham. Athletics Shortly after the Easter holidays, our basket-ball team went to Toronto to play the return game Avith St. Margaret ' s Col- lege. The game was very exciting, the teams being so evenly matched, and it was only after hard work that the O.L.C. team scored the fina,l point, the score being 12-10. After the game a delightful dinner was given our team. In the afternoon our team girls were the guests of St. Margaret ' s when the latter took them for vox COLLEGII 29 a most enjoyable motor ride around tlie city, returning to the College for after- noon tea. Spring Field Day was held on Fi ' iday of Commencement week. There were many events and a large number of the girls entered them. Perhaps the most exciting event was the relay race. Main, Upper and Lower Frances, and Ryerson each had a team of six girls from their respective halls. Upper Frances ( " The Nursery " ) came first, Ryerson Halls second, then Lower Frances and Main. The ivinner of the highest number of points was Loaise Burns, with Hazel Taylor second and May " Webster third. On Saturday afternoon the swimming meet was held, with many contestants. After an afternoon of the most thrilling excitement, the results were as follows : The Gold Medal, open to those holding Award of Merit eei ' tificates from the Royal Life Saving Society, was awarded to Cort. Reynolds, and was by reversion, given to Hazel Taylor. The winner of the Silver Medal, open to holders of Bronze Medallions, was Marjorie Nicol, and the numerals were won by Floi-ence Eastmond. Congiatulations to the winners in the tennis tournament! After an interest- ing, and exciting week the finals were played off on Tuesday, June 8. A silver cup, the gift of Mr. H. W. Reynolds, of Montreal, was awarded to Maude Mc- Quillan, winner of the singles, and priz- es to Laureen Terryberry and Maude McQuillan, winners of the doubles. On Saturday, June 5 ' , great happiness attended the election of Cort Reynolds as holder of the shield for 1920-21, for excellence in Athletics, Scholarship and Womanly Qualities ; and it was in her honour that the F eld Day Sports took place later in the afternoon.

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. Shredded Wheat is a muscle- building, delicious, all-day food made from the whole wheat berry. It contains the maximum of food value and the minimum of waste. 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. Limited, NIAGARA FALLS.
