Another seliool year lias passed and taken with it many of our old class- mates who will never return to us. However, there are those who will return with many new irls to make another year of events for the next Vox. We liope lo make this year ' s paper at least as good and if possible better tlian any Vox of former years. We also wish to make it a higher standard to live up to for the Vox staffs of future years. This Hiagaizne has achieved its suc- cess through the splendid c:)-o])er;!ti(ni of the Faculty, the studeui body airl 1lu Vox staff. We wish t-o thank oi f and all for their loyal sup})oi [. Our Vox would be impossii)U ' ' vitli- ou1 the ass ' slance of our advert isei-s. They have done much to make our paper a bigger and better one than for- merly and so we wish to extend our thanks to them and hope that the future stiuhr ' nts of tlie school will 1)( loyal io those wlio have so willingly aided us. The numerous social activities which have occurr.-d thronghout the year have been delightful largely on account of the school spirit evident at all times. A school is only successful where school spirit prevails and it i s i liat spirit throughout the school that has made it what it is to-day. Our exhi- l)ition, field day and swimming meet were important events which were car- ried throug h to the satisfaction of all. We had seve ' ral good games of baskct- l)all wdth other schools and althougli we did not always carry off the honours of the day the gii ' ls took their defeat well and enjoyed the games in spite of their results. We wish success and extend coiigi-at- idations to those who have left our school aiul hope that they will look back with pleasant memories on the years of jov and good fellowship spent at (). C. 2 VOXCOLLEGII The Graduating Class of 1922 Jane Merchant About September 14th, 1920, there came to O.L.C. a dainty little iniss with large blue eyes, who announced her in- tention of studying A.T.C.M. work in piano. She was born in Akron, Ohio, but has lived in Bowmanville for eleven years, where she attended the Public and High Schools. Two years have gone swiftly l)y, but in two years this little lady has won the admiration and love of her fel- low students. For the year 1921-22 she was Treasurer of the Okt.clos, and for most of our schools exhibitions she has been more than generous with her help at the piano. Many a Sunday night she has sung to us (luaint little songs and sometimes, " Janey said she wouldn ' t, Janey said she couldn ' t. But she did, did, did. " And best and loveliest of all, Jane is the Senior President. You are leaving us, Jane, with your coveted diploma, but O.L.C. will never forget you. We wish you every suc- cess in life and may your songs bring as much happiness to others as they have brought to us. Hobby— ' ' Boycotting.

Jean Hickling ' " Always busy and never, on time " Jean claims Beautiful Barrie, situated sixty miles north of Toronto, as her native town. Her home at Broadlin Farm, where she was born is three miles out of the town. Before coming to O.L.C. she at- tended school near her home, and in Barrie. She registered at the College as an Art Student in the Spring of 1920. On her return the following fall, she decided to make Expression her major course, and this year is honoured by being the only graduate In that de partment and J ' resident of the Dramatic Club. She was an active membei " of the Y.W.C.A., being vice-president and also vice-president of the Senior Class. She made a very imposing Speaker of The House in the Civics Club, and is a menil)er of the Vox Staff.

She is on the " Vox Staff, " Secretary to the Senior Class and last, but by no means l?ast, the very capable president of the Oktielos Club. All of which she filled most worthily. She passed her A.T.C. M. with first class honours and tied for the much coveted Gold Medal. Helen leaves us this year and will be greatly missed in our halls next year, but we hope she will have the best of luck in her future undertak- ings. Favourite Expression — " My kid bro- ther said.

Secretary and Mir- ipan Eckert. Treasurer. The Class could not have chosen its officers more wis.dy, as under their leadership the Junior Class had a very enjoyable year. In the Fall a hike to Oshawa, to be followed by a lunch at Welch ' s was planned, but owing to bad weather this looked-t ' or treat had to be cancelled. The Juniors, however, never let bad weather dampen their spirits and a very enjoyable evening was spent in the Gym. The girls attended the party in their bloomers and played games. Of course the refreshments were the at- tractive feature of the evening. In January the Class gave the rest of the .school a skating party. The weather man rose to the occasion and provided perfect skating weather and good ice. The rink was lit with torches and a huge bon-fire. Music was provided by the Whitby Orchestra which added mucli to the enjoyment of the party. Refreshments were served in the Com- mon Room made attractive and cozy by two grate fires. On Miss j Iurchie ' s birthday the class presented her with a week-end bag in appreciation of her help and advice throughout the year. This year has been a very busy one for the Juniors but there is not one but will tell you that it has also been a happy year. Valedictory We the graduating class of 1922 hope that though you may get along withoiit us you will not have reason to forget us. All of us in our minds go back to a liright September morning a year or more ago when fearful and wondering, yet full of hope, we came for the first time to O.L.C. Everything was new, the buildings, the teachers, and also the other pupils, so of course we were rather timid at first. However, we soon became ac(|uainted with the teachers and each other and advanced along the pathway of knowledge. We acquired 1he spirit of the school and entered into its relationships and ideals. Before many days had gone by we learned that the educational ideals of the school were four-square. Ample opportunity was given for our develop- ment — intellectually, socially, physical- ly and religiously. If, therefore, we have made the 1iest of our opportuni- ties we are going out into life better equipped for service than if we had concentrated our energies on only one phase of the four-fold life. The primary objective of the school is our intellectual education and our efficient teachers strive towards this. An education satisfies a prevalent de- sire to acquire knowledge. Yet do we ever satisfy this desire? Is it not a fact that the more knowledge we ac- cumulate the more we realize that we are but at the begin)iing of a real edu- cation? When the desire to learn ceas- es, all progress ceases. It is because we are not satisfied that we are able to make progress. It is not only what we have actually learned that is to be of use to us, but also the habits we have formed. Consider the accuracy in ma- thematics and science, the habits of in- vestigation and the forming of inde- pendent conclusions which both de- mand, the appreciation of the beautiful in art and music, the development of imagination and the ability to consder and appreciate the ideas of others which one gets in literature, the taste for research which one develops in studying the classics and the practical side of the commercial and domestic science courses. It is through all these habits which have been so continuously inculcated in the room and else- where that we prepare ourselves for our place in the world. Thi-ough these we have at least acquired studious hab- its which through life will enable us to 8 VOX C O L L E G I I reach the goal towards which we set ourselves. We also are trained in the social side of life. One of the great contributing factors in the development of social and moral ideals is the personality of those with whom we come in contact, partic- ularly the members of the staff to whom we naturally look for example. have felt the influence of our liighly esteemed principal, Mr. Farewell, and the kind and wise guidance of our be- loved lady principal, Miss Maxwell. We feel that we can never fully repay them for their thoughtfulness and guid- ance throughout the year. We wish to express our gratitude to the members of the Faculty, the matron, the house- mother, and the nurse, who have so willingly supported us in the many things that we could not have accomp- lished alone. We also wish to thank the school for the many social events we have enjoyed. The old Roman ideal was " Mens sani in eorpore sano " a sound mind in a soimd body. " The physical side of our education makes this possible. We have opportunities for many outdoor and indoor sports supplemented by a well equipped gymnasium and swim- ming pool. We wish to extend our thanks to our physical director, Miss Murchie, who has been evor anxious and careful of our physical develop- ment. The religious side of our lives has been emphasized and enlarged by our spleiidid Su)iday eveiiing services, our Y.W.C.A. and the moral support of the staff ' . We, the graduating class of 1922, bid a fond farewell to the school and in de- jiarting we urge you, our successors, to make the most of the opportunities which the four-fold life aff ' ord«. May you succeed where we have failed, and may you be victorious where we were defeated. We have fully appreciated what 0. L. C. has meant to us only as we have reached the height of graduation and look back in retrospect on our joys and sorrows of the year that has gone. As we leave we carry with us the deepest feelings of regret, the most pleasant memories and the tenderest of feelings for our Alma Mater. May we be the credit to the school that the many who have gone before have been, and as we say farewell, we look forward to the happiness and comradeship which will be restored at our Golden Jubilee just two years hence. May the coming year be to all wlio retui ' n jn September next ever more joyous and helpful than the one which has all to speedily gone.

FARE- WELL ' S ADDRESS. In closing 1 should like to say a word to the members of the Graduating Class. During the time you have been at the school you have forged such bonds of friendship and good-will between yourselves and the school as shall last forever. By your loyalty and devo- tion to its standards, by your readiness to unselfishly co-operate with its fac- ulty and students at all times and by your adherence to your studies you have endeared yourselves to all of us. You have passed your examinations (I trust) with credit, some of you with high honors. You have completed tlie I ' espective courses that the college has offered you, and you are ready to leave us. We are sorry to see you go. You have added much to the impressions and influences and ideals that go to make up school life. Your places will be hard to fill. And yet we would not hold you if we could. After the theory there eoines experience ; after the pre- paration, l attle; after the training, work, achievement. It is now for you to achieve. You can do this only out in the world, in the sun ' s glare amid a host of witnesses. The gleam, whose flash perhaps you have seen at 0.,L.C. will go before you. We have confidence in you that in the immediate years be- fore you and beyond, you will follow the gleam, that you will dare much and do great things. You will recall that in one of Sir Rupert Brook ' s poems, " The Soldier, " he declares that wherever his body might he found, " That place shall be forever England.

GOING OUT In mail-time the three agreeable ' •oom-mates decided to decorate their room. That is why we find Ola, an hour later, standing with one small foot on the table which served as a writing desk, and the other, clad only in silk stocking, on a bed. Her mouth was full of tacks and she had an old brown oxford in her right hand. Tlie room was large for a boarding school bedroom but the worldly possessions of four school girls would not permit of it ' s being called spacious. Ola, the most prominent of the four room-mates, or the one " who did things, " was hanging pictures, or prob- ably tacking them would be more like it, while her three " room-mutts " and several other girls perched on the beds, the tables, and the few chairs the room afforded, criticized, advis. ' d and gossip- ed of the school activities. " Clear the track, " called Ola, as she spran ' g from the table to the floor, the tacks st ' ll in her mouth and the firm hold on the old brown oxford not re- laxed. " Off those old masters, those price- less treasures of art. Eve. Would you despoil the art of all the a es? " slic cried banteringly, as she pushed a live- ly young person with bobbed hair off a pile of Harrison Fisher girls which had adornsd the covers of the popular and forbidden periodicals of the month. " What is home without a picture? " came in a chant of derision fi-om the corner. " What is boarding-school without magazine covers? " said a practical member of the commercial class. " Old masters, a month old " cried a gay room-mate. " Put the little ' peaches aiul cream ' in the canoe over the " " Over the fire-place. " " No-o, litle girls should be seen and not heard, — — over the door, of course. ' ' " You ' ve said it. Here girls, join the forward movement and help shove the 14 VOX COLLEGII table over where I can stand on it to put it over the door. " " Our little jugglerette is going to stand on the table and put it over the door. Take oft ' your shoes or you ' ll scratch it. " Mildred took Domestic Science and was supposed to know all about furni- ture and its care. She was pleasingly plump, as she described herself, and this fact, her room-mates were wont to declare, was due to her course of study. " The things she cooks can ' t be so bad " they urged, " or she would not get so fat eating her own experiments. " Ola took off the remaining shoe, filled her mouth with a fresh supply of tacks, mounted the table by means of the bed, and proceeded to tack up the picture, driving the tacks by means of the heel of her old oxford. " Mighty fine hammer, this, " she commented as she sucked her thvimb and straightened a tack. " Evei-y shoe your own tack hammer. Think I ' ll hang out my shingle. All kinds of car- pentry work done promptly and neatly. Shades of the home-decorator. Was that a rap? " " More flowers. " " Another crush. " " Ola ' s latest " cried her room-mates in one breath. " She ' ll soon be crushed to death, " said an envious neighbour. The rap was repeated sharply, and a brilliant idea seized Ola. She opened the transom and peered cautiously around the corner into the hall below. " Saints preserve us. Oh Miss Hall. I ' m sorry. I ' ll open the door. " At the sound of that name the girls made one dash for the furniture which was quickly cleared away from the door. " Girls, it ' s study hour. Go to your own rooms, please, " said the teacher, and three girls departed for " home " otherwise, next door. " Lo, business before pleasure and we go to work " said Ola. She was a senior and her words were as Solomon ' s. The three girls began to study but Ola i-ummaged around and produced a l)ox from which she took a huge cake. ' Bring me something to put the cake on, girls. " One of them brought an ivory tray and the cake was duly cut and piled thereon, a steel ruler doing excellent service as a substitute for a knife. " 1 promis3d the girls next door a piece but I can ' t take it in in study hour. ' ' Mildred was the room-mate " with an idea. ' ' She leaned out the window and drummed on the eave trough until she got an answer from the next window, then she leaned farther out and called. " Hey, kids, got a broom in there? Slide it over. " " Now, " said Mid, with the air of one who has invented something new under the sun, " take this broom and put a magazine on it, then put the cake on top of that and if they ' re careful and have a good sense of balance, they ' ll have some cake. " Betty held Mid ' s feet to be sure she would not fall out the third story win- dow. The cake was removed and a note came back on the broom. " Thanks, " Ola read. " Have you much more like it? " " Oodles and oodles " she replied, leaning a perilous distance out the win- dow. " If I had some ice-cream I ' d have a feed. " " I dare you to go down town and get some. " " I dare you. " ' ■ ' I dare you. We ' ll have a feed at nine and it ' s only half -past seven now. " A few minutes later two figures dres- sed for the street and enveloped in bathrobes with a pair of shoes under their arms, crept silently through the shadows in the hall to the bathroom where a window gave access to the fire- escape. Here they threw off their bath-robes, exchanged their bedroom slippers for shoes, and put on tams which they had taken from their pock- ets. V 0 X C 0 L L E G I 1 15 " Go easy with tlie window, " whis- pered Ola. Eve raised the window whicli made a shrill grating sound. " Sh-h-h. " A hand caught Eve and roughly pulled her to a crouching position be- low the window. Eve wanted to scream. Faltering footsteps were heard in the corridor and then they died away. Quickly and silently the girls crawled tlirough the window to the fire-escape. " Oh-h-h " said Ola in a whisper. " There ' s a big stone down there and I ' ll fall on it sure — and — maybe I ' ll get hurt and then you ' ll have to tell the faculty and we ' ll be expelled. " " Don ' t be silly. Here, catch hold there, swing and then drop. " Mid swung to the ground with the ease of a professional porch climber. There was a soft " plump " and the two girls picked themselves up from the long grass in the darkest part of the grounds near the back of the school. They chose the darker, less frequented streets and ran. WheitT they saw anyone approaching they slid into the shadows and waited until the passer-by was out of sight, fearing he might recognize them as wayward students. Thus, they reached downtown without meeting any of the faculty. They entered the ice-cream parlor, gave their order, four bricks of ice-cream, and the woman in charge, evidently recognizing them as school girls out of bounds, thoughtfully wrapped the bricks in dark paper. There was the sound of approaching footsteps and the -girls seized the par- cels and bolted through the back door and found themselves, laughing and breathless, in the back yard which seemed full of old cans and barrels over which they stumbled laughing, and fin- ally gained the street. Making slow progress because of the number of people on the street, they had proceeded about a block when sud- denly the sky became as black as ink, the few stars disappeared, a sudden gust of wind sent a cloud of dust roll- nig down the street which almost blind- ed them. There was a flash of light- ning, a roll of thunder and the lights went ofif. What would they not have •given to be safe and warm in the school as they clung together under the trees and shivered for fear. Tlie wind roar- ed louder and louder. They heard limbs crashing and the rain fell in tor- rents. " Oh, what ' 11 we do, what ' 11 we do? " wailed Eve. They were afraid of falling limbs and so they began to struggle in what they hoped was the direction of the school. Ola stumbled and fell from the curl) and then above the sound of wind and rain they heard the sound of a horse galloping on the pavement and then a woman screamed. It sounded uneartlily in the dark and storm. They lost all sense of direction and struggled on. Finally they were rewarded by seeing a faint flicker ahead and realized that it was a candle burning in the lower hall of the school. They never knew just how. they drag- ged themselves up the fire-escape and crept through the hall filled with stu- dents in wild confusion, to their own rooms. Just when Ola ' s thoug ' hts were becoming a litle more connected, the lights flashed on, from far away came a little tinkle and a moment later the nine o ' clock bell rang loiidly and clear- ly. Ola had just put on a warm kimona wdien there was a rap at the door and a teacher entered. " I see that the roof is leaking again right beside the wardrobe. I shall speak to the matron about that " she said as she saw a trail of water from the wardrobe. " Was it exciting? " asked Ola ' s room-mate when they were all snug in bed and " lights out " had rung. " It was ' very, " said Ola, and then added mentally " Never again. " 16 VOX COLLEGil THE BEGINNING OF MAN and also WHY WE HAVE COLD WEATHER Once upon a time, long, long ago, the sun and moon us d to shine all the time and there was no cold weather. But there was no-one, either, to enjoy this lovely weather, so the Sun god said " What ' s the use of me keeping the sun so hot when there is no body to enjoy it. 1 must speak to the Life-god. " So the Sun-god went to the Life-god and asked him if, seeing that he had al- ready made trees and flowers, and plenty of animals and birds, who lived hy k.lling each other to his great dis- gust, if he could make another type of life who might rule over these other things to a certain extent. So the agreeable Life-god heaped a huge pile of flowers up (because they breath out oxygen), and poured on a great (juantity of water, and then he asked the Sun-god to shine on the heap for a period of tim3 that would equal about nine or ten months of our reck- oning. The Sun-god was rather mysti- fied by this request, but did so. At the end of this time, during the last week espec ally, the heap of flow- ers grew smaller and smaller until it eventually stood about six feet high; and then it started to contract and ex- pand rapidly. At this the Life-god be- came very excited, and jumped around a lot, and kept pouring more water over it ; and th n one day he repeated madly over and over again : " With monkey ' s form, but beauteous still. Become the lord o ' er vale and hill; With the brains of all my beasts com- bined ; Have more than all their 1) rth and kind ; THE HONOUR CLUB EXECUTIVE V ox C () L L E G 1 I 17 Love all — plant, creature, land and sea; And bring a maid to live with thee. " And lo ! and behold ! the pile of flow- ers one day disappeai ' ed and there stood two marvellously beautiful creat- ures, hand in hand. Like all other animal races, this lat- est species flourished and became num- erous. Being- much cleverer than the others they remained lords over them ; and also they put th?ir cleverness into making their lives and existence as comfortal)le and as happy as possible, which was not very difficult during this time of beautiful weather. But one day, it happened that two of these " human " beings beeam? angry with one another, and one killed the other. As soon as he did this he realized that he had done something terribly wrong and more wicked than anything else. He real zed also that this other man deserved life as much as he, and the result was that he brooded over his act and became vary cold in his ac- tions and feelings. Eventually he l)e- came so cold in thoughts and spirit that he began to think that it was not really him that was cold but the weather. Then the Sun-god said: " That man has done a t?ri-ible deed of wrong and to pun ' .sh him and any like him, as he already thinks the weather is cold, I might as well make the weather cold. " Of course some people are good and so he left half th weather nice and warm, but ever since that day there has been miserably cold weather part of the time, in remembrance of the first crime and a warning to future generations. — E. P. C. SCHOOL DAYS Mary Louise sat on the window-seat at the side door waiting for the Bus to come. She took a deep breath ; it hard- ly seemed possible that she had gradu- ated only yesterday. It was th? beginn ' ng of a new life. Yes! But the end of hei- school days. She had often heard the saying that school days are the happiest of all. She wonderrd vaguely if this were true. In her flrst school days had she found them so very happy? Her mind travelled back to the little school room in the country. How well she remembered the day she had been chawing gum and the exasperated young teacher had brought her up to the front of the room. As she faced the sea of faces before her Mary Louise Was conscious of giggles. She obeyed the teacher ([uietly and placed the offend- ing article on her little turned up nose amid a burst of laughter. When the teacher resumed her seat Mary Louise made faces and laughed for the b?nefit of the sympathetic audience before her. But when they were out during recess she resolved into tears. The repentant teacher had lent her a handkerchief to wipe away her tears. Ma ry Louise smiled as she thought of how she had washed " teacher ' s hankie " at the pump and ironed it with a cold doll ' s iron in the hope that mother wouldn ' t discover the disgrace which had befal- len her. Had that beon a happy time? And then, at h ' gh school when Mary Louise was in first form, and was at that sensitive age, she had been made to sit with a boy because she had been talking. She remembered how her cheeks had burned, and how near the tears had been. It had been a great Inuniliation and as she wended her way home Mary Louise had thought the world very cruel indeed. But oh ! Mary Louise sighed, what could possibly be nicer than Gradua- tion? All the joys and thrills that go with it ! It frightened her just a teeny weeny bit as she thought that soon, very soon, she must decide her future life. But it really was wonderful to b.» as happy as she was now. As the other girls gathered around I ' or the Bus Mary Louise decided lliat des])ite childish mishaps school days are the happiest ever. " And, " she addnl to her self as she kissed an accjuaintance good-bye, " even mishans are funny — after they ' re over. — Shirley Leisiiman. ATHLETICS AND GAMES, O.L.C., 1921-22 vox COLLEGll 19 FROM A CANOE " One day I startsd out in a canoe on a tour of inspection around the little Lake Kasheshebooamog, in Muskoka. The water was very calm and it was in water lily season. Sweeping around a curve of rocks a beautiful scene came into view : — a little blue bay covered with a white and green sheet of water lilies, and all surrounded by a marsh ol ' iris. I leaned over to pick a flower, and suddenly — " " I supose you fell in? " — " No, I — Suddenly I caught sight of a green branch floating across the bay, gradually naaring a little corner where the land curved, making some kind of nook that was out of sight. " It must be a little stream, ' I said to myself, and paddled nearer to see. " What 1 saw was a little beaver hut, and a little brown head disappear, leaving the branch mo- tionless. — E. P. C. SENIOR CLASS WILL We, the S. nior class ol June, 1922, of O.L.C., in eleven (11) distinct and individual parts, being of sound m ' nd and deposing memory do hereby de- clare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills and bequests made by us at any time or in any form heretofore. First — To our lieloved faculty who have been our guides and instructors throughout the two long years of toil, we give and b:queath our sincere love and affection. Second — To our esteemed and rever- ed ijriucipals. Miss Maxwell and Mr. Farewell, who have been our counsel- lors and friends during our Collage car- eer, our sincerest gratitude and the whole unlimited wealth of our eternal memory. Third — To our Alma Mater we give and bequeath our best wishes for a bright and successful future. May she continue to stand in the topmost rank of the Colleges of the Ootninioju Foiirth — To the incoming Senior Class we will our places in the dear old Halls. To this Class we will our seats in the Classrooms, all pencils, scribblers and books which in our haste we may have left behind. We also will them the right to ring the chimes thrice daily and also the sole responsibility of dust- ing and looking after our fragile gift to the school — Armasiki. The following may seem but trifling be(iuests, but we hope that they may be accepted, not as worthless things lav- ishly thrown away because we can no longer keep them but as valuable assets to those who may receive them, and a continual reminder of the generosity of heart displayed in our free and full be- stowal : — ■ 1. Gertrude Banwell wills her extra " avoirdupois " to Wilma Gale. 2. Marian Gill leaves her wealth of luxuriant locks to Marian Richardson, and her sweet smile to Lois Newberry. 3. Jean Hickling be(iueaths her ex- ceptionally sweet (?) singing voice to Myrtle Nesbitt. 4. Phyllis Hipwell wills her love of art and her Fra Lippo Lippi-like skill in producing pictures to Alice Lees. 5. Helen Johnston leaves lier beloved and much-worn " Ballad " to Maisie Bowman and her fondness for hair- dressing to Alicia Hambly. 6. Marjorie Kisbe.y bequeaths her speed and efficiency in all things to Isobel Stewart. 7. Jane Merchant wills her coquet- tish ways and coy curls to Norah Hol- d?n and her remarkable ear for mus e to Lois Laffoley. 8. Edith Pool leaves her athletic alnlity to Leila Hunter and her skill at being able to put things over evei-ybody in general and Faculty and customs officers in particular to Edith Kerr.

Edith Wainwright wills her rid- ing outfit and her grace in riding to Elmyra Nichols. Having now disposed of all our ef- fects, we can only say that we have many regrets at parting, at having to leave behind the joys that have been ours during these two years. In witness whereof, we, the Senior Class of ' 22, of O.L.C., to this our last will and testament do hereby set our hands and seals this fourteenth day of June, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-two. — Jean L. H ' ekling. " A College is like a little world — Aye, thus it is — one generation comes, Another goes and mingles with the dust : May Day Our May Day is for all the girls one of the most important days of the year. The entire school looked forward to the day lest the weather should not hi fa- vourable, but the weather man was es- pecially kind to us and the day was per- fect in every way. In the morning Rev. Bruce Hunter addressed us on " The Ideal Woman " . His talk was one of the most inspiring and helpful to which the girls had ever listened. He spoke of the four stand- ards which a woman must live up to in order to lead an ideal life. After the address the girls voted on the May Queen and her councillors, and the results were greeted with great ex- citement and pleasure by all. Miss Olive Isaacs received a very large ma- jority of the votes for Queen and Miss Marion Gill and Miss Jean Hickling were voted Co incillors. The Queen and her train retired to dress for the And there we come and go, and come and go, Each for a little moment, filling up Some little plan; and thus we disappear In quick succession ; and it shall be so Till time, in one vast perplexity Be swallowed up.

In the afternoon we laid aside all ceremony and piled on hay racks head- ed for the lake singing- and strumming on our ukeleles. At the lake the girls played games and ate a sumptuous re- past before returning tired and weai-y 22 VOX COLLEGII to the college. Shortly after our arriv- al there we enjoyed a wonderful and varied display of fire-works for several hours. At the end of a perfect day we retired willingly to our very inviting beds. THE SOPHOMORES O.L.C. Whitby It is said here that everybody must blow their own horn, for the simple reason that if they don ' t nobody else will. The Sophomores fully realize this and intend to get a megaphone if neces- sary. Our class was organized in October and Dorothy MacDonald was elected President; Lois Newberry was chosen as Vice and Grace Elliot was made Sec- retary. We have never had cause to re- great our choice of either our President or Vice President, and Grace makes a most wonderful Secretary. She is the best collector of class fees you ever met. Miss Child was chosen as our form teacher, and has been a splendid one all through the year. Our class is a small one, and so, when our turn came round to give an enter- tainment for the school, we decided to unite with the Freshmen, who are a small class also. St. Patrick ' s Day was chosen for our party. Such excitement ! We started to prepare for it a little over a week beforehand, and from that day on every Sophomore and Fresh- man door was barricaded with an " en- gaged " sign. We all went around like so many conspirators, planning a bank robbery, instead of the givers of a St. Patrick ' s party. At last the seven- teenth arived and early in the after- noon we all went down to the Gymnas- ium and began our task of decorating it. We had prepared a lot of green and white paper cut in long strips before- hand, and these we hung from the lamps, and the balcony, and ladder. Irish pipes, and hats decorated the walls, and green baloons were strung along the travelling ring s, the ladder and around the baskets. We ransacked our rooms for pillows, rugs, and arm eairs, and these we placed around the room. By dinner time we were finished and really the Gym looked lovely. After dinner we scattered to our rooms to begin the most important function of the evening — that of getting dressed. The Sophomores were to go as Irish boys and the Freshmen as Irish girls. The two class teachers had also prom- ised to be in costume but quite refused to tell us what their costumes were to be like. Those costumes of ours were fearfully and wonderfully made to be sure but they looked all right when we got downstairs and that was the main thing. A few minutes after we had as- sembled in the Gym. Mademoiselle Ri- gaud,the Freshman class teacher, and Miss Child, made their appearance. They were received with ohs ! and ahs ! and a perfect storm of questions. They were certainly the finishing touch to our scheme of decoration, and gave the party such a g-ay appearance that ' we hardly knew ourselves. Miss Child was dressed as an Irish Nobleman of the eighteenth century, with green bro- caded coat, white satin breeches, ruf- fles and powdered hair all complete, while mademoiselle looked lovely as an old-fashioned Irish girl. There were ten dances and then two couples gave the Irish jig, Velma La- France sang, and i efreshments were served. Then came the " Grand Fin- ale " of the evening. A basket full of mysterious looking parcels was drag- ged itno the middle of the floor and everyone made a grab for a pai ' cel. They were all shapes and sizes. Some were suit, dress and hat boxes, while others were quite small. After undo- ing yards of paper you came to one small ' green sucker. You may imag- ine the result! The evening closed with the giving, of class yells, and songs, and everybody went off to bed declaring that the Sophs and Freshies were trumps, while we re- 1. SOPHOMORE CLASS, 1921-22 2.

E G 1 1 mained behind to pat ourselves on the Imck, over the success of our party, and incidentally to wash the dishes. After Easter everyone was so busy and there was so much doing that the Sophomores had no more time for any- thing else. However, despite this now that the term is nearly over we are all glad to have had such a jolly year to- gether as the Sophomores of O.L.C. California or Canada-- Which ? It is February. We are to visit Cali- fornia, that magic land, where winter is only a few weeks of rainy weather, and now even that will be over. After a day on the train we reach Chicago, and that evening board the Los Angeles Limited, bound for sunny California. Leaving Salt Lake City, we go almost directly south, and then with scarcely any warning, on the fringe of the end- less desert, we find San Bernardino, and a few minutes later Riverside. Here we leave the train, for it is not fitting that we rush wildly through California on a shrieking locomotive. We must go softly, and take, or we will break the spell of the land, and not hear its voice calling or catch the message. Th3 residents recognize us instantly, we belong to a common variety, the tourists. For the first few days we are always looking upwards, trying to see the tops of the palm trees, and exclaim- ing at their size. California is a land of many traditions, we feel their influ- ence at once. The Glenwood Mission Inn, with its collection of curios, found in the Old Mission, the cross on the top of Mt. Rubidoux erected in memiory of the Franciscan Fathers, are a reminder of the days when California belonged to Mexico, and you would hear the soft Spanish tongue spoken by her people. As we start our trip by motor the beauty and difference of the country leave us speechless, we can only feel. The sky is deep blue and cloudless. Looking over your shoulder you see the San Bernardino mount ains in the dist- ance, snow capped. On the one hand is the Sianta Anna river and the desert. on the other the dark green of ihe cit- rus groves, the lighter green of the al- falfa, and the ranch houses nestling among them, while the tall palm and Cyprus trees stand like sentinels to guard the land. Leaving Riverside we pass miles of orange groves, and acres of grapes. A twist in the highway and our senses are intoxicated by a grove of almond trees in blossom. It is a riot of beauty. Be- fore we know it we are in Ontario, that beautiful little city named by a Cana- dian. Two long lines of eucalyptus trees mark the centre of the street and lead through uplands to the foot of Mt. Badly, with its crown of glistening- snow. From Ontario we follow the highway which leads to Los Angeles. The roses are in bloom and are planted at even intervals along the roadside, red, white, pink and yellow, while in the groves flaunting their beauty we glimpse the bright orange of the California poppy, the state flower. Leaving the mountains behind, we pass towns and cities, when suddenly in the distance we are conscious of something new, a misty grey blue, our first glimpse of the Pacific, seen through a high fog. A few minutes more bring us to Long Beach, where the calla lilies grow best, and the pergolas are inter- laced with wisteria. Passing through Los Angeles, which is much like all large cities, excepting that sky scrapers are conspicuous by their absence. We are again on the highway leading to San Diego. There is very little growth in parts of this sec- tion, and it is then for the first time we realize that in all California there is vox COLLEGII 25 nothing growing- where it is not irri- gated, excepting- in the mountain can- ons, nothing grows that is not planted and cultivated. Even the immense trees were imported by the holy Fathers lU the early days. Another turn in the road and we are parallel to the ocean, and drive for miles along the beach, before we start climbing the low mountains. This mountain road twists and curves so that we can see the highway in six places at one time. From the top the view is wonderful, miles of desert on one side, and the boundless ocean on the other. We leave La Jalla with its rocky caves and foaming spray, to find the past at the old Mission of San Juan Ca- pistrano, with its memories of Califor- nia ' s hero. Tray, Junipero Sena. The old mission is beautiful even in decay, it seems like holy ground. At intervals all the way to San Diego are posts surmounted by bells. These bells mark the road the Mission Fathers travelled when making their pilgrim- ages. San Diego is a lovely city, and the park, where the southern California ex- position was held, beyond description. We must take the fairy to Cornada, that famous summer resort. We visit Lent City, which in the tourist season is crowded with people, and from here we look across that strip of golden sand reaching out into the water, the connecting link between this sunny land and that country of unrest and mystery, Mexico. We are tired of sight-seeing, and our hearts are turning- homeward. Even the sunshine grows njonotonous. We would give an armful of California ros- es for one Canadian dandelion. It is May and Canada calls. We travel north to San Francisco, that city with a past, facing west on San Francisco Bay, with its Golden Gates ajar. We stop at Portland with its beautiful parks, and Seattle, another city on seven hills. We take the boat to Victoria and the sight of that island and the Canadian flag, is most satisfy- ing, we feel so secure. Victoria is at its best, with the bloom a mass of yellow blossom in the parks and along the roads. The trip to Vancouver is sometliing to be remembered, as we near the har- bor and see that city which connects Canada with the far East, againsi its background of towering- mountains. We catch something of the vastness of Can- ada and the great future before her. We feel this more clearly perhaps, be- cause we have just come from a land with so many traditions of the past, a land of dreams and sunshine, where it is so easy to live, and drift. Canada is young, with so much of the best to offer her children if they will but give their best in return. She throws out a challenge to us all, and sets a hard task, but in doing it we grow stronger, able to accomplish greater things. The trip from Vancouver through the mountains — is there anything in the world to equal it? In Switzerland only can we find another Lake Louise. Banff, surrounded by mountains with their summits, in the clouds and the Bow river and falls at their feet. " Calgary of the plains " and our prairie farms, reaching far north and south, containing untold wealth ; and then Winnipeg, and still we are only half way across this land. P ort William with is immense grain elevators, the trip on the Great Lakes, and back to Old Ontario, the garden of Canada. A few minutes ride from Toronto and we are in the town of Whitby, eager for a sight of the College again. As we approach it up an avenue of arched maples, we are struck afresh with the massive beauty of the College itself. The grounds which surround it, are dotted with flowers and shrubs, a mass of fragrant beauty. It is good to be home. We love California, and hope to visit there again, many times perhaps, but when we leave the halls of 26 VOX COLLEGII the old school, and come to the fork in the road, where we must decide what to do with the future, we will follow the northern trail, to that young land of golden promise. ,. — Leila M. Hunter. MEMORY PICTURES As the time draws near for me to leave this beloved building with all its traditions, I realize that, cherished deeply in my heart, are one or two memory-pictures which shall never be effaced. One that I love especially is a Spring picture. Glossy ivy already has laid its softening touch upon the grey walls, flowering shrubs lend a colourful beauty to their base. Great trees with tender green foliage fringe the campus and arch over the pathway. The warm sunlight casts a friendly glow over ev- erything, sifting down through the leafy branches and making golden pat- ches on the lawns, matching the dan- delions for brightness. Another, and my dearest memory, is of Winter-time. Fleecy and pure, new fallen snow rests on roof-tops and ground, making a covering for the bare branches, and turning the evergreens into gigantic Christmas trees trimmed with cotton-wool. The setting sun darts its slanting rays on the many window-panes, and they shine like the stained glass of a great cathedral, bringing to my mind that line from " The Bugle Song, " " The splendour falls on castle walls. " The last crimson banners are furled in the west, and lights from inside the building begin to wink out into the twi- light. Cheerfully they beckon to us, speaking of warmth and friendliness, and into our hearts there creeps a some- thiiag, faint as the echo of the fairy bugles, a glad, intangible feeling that this is our school, and we are proud of it. — E. Caswell. CHUMS vox C 0 L L E G I I 27 Y.W.C. A.— — rv 0)1 the evening of September 16, 1921. the Y.W.C. A. held an " L.U.B.A. " Social in the Concert Hall, which was cozily arranged with easy chairs and cushions. The first item on the jiro- gTam was a Bean Contest, wliieh gave the old girls an opportunity to get ac- quainted with the new girls and to make them feel at home. Virginia Frid was the winner of the contest, the prize be ' ng a school pin. After saveral musi- cal numl ers which included solos by- Miss Stevens and Janie Merchant, and a piano duet by Helen Johnston and Marjorie Kisbey, and a reading by Jean Hickling, Mr. Farewell and Miss Max- well each spoke a few words of wel- come to the new girls, as well as to the old girls. Dainty refreshments served by a number of the old girls brought to a close a very happy evening, and the aim of the " Y. " to " Let us become ac- (luainted " was realized. At our first " Y " meeting Jean Hick- ling was elected Vice President and Betty Caswell, Treasurer. At the first cabinet meeting Miss Follett was ap- pointed Faculty Advisor and Luella Scott, Social Convener, Elmyra Nicliolls was elected Candy Secretary, with El- eanor Wilson as an assistant, and through the faithful service of these two officers a large profit was added to the treasury during the year. At the beginning of the school year a membership campaign was held, when almost every student became a member of the " Y. " and all the members of the P ' aculty became honorary members. The Thursday night meetings were well attended throughout the year, some of the speakers being Mr. Fare- well, Miss Maxwell, Miss Ball, Mrs. Turkington, Miss Archibald, Miss Dow- son, Miss Murchie and a number of the students. Several very enjoyable social meetings were held, at which members of the Faculty and students played, sang and recited. Our Sunday evening services were very inspiring and interesting, addres- ses were given from time to time, in- cluding several m ' ssionary talks hy re- turned missionaries. Dr. and Mrs. Stevenson spoke on China and Japan at one of our chapel services and showed some intensely interesting slides taken on their recent visit to th?se countries. Another Sunday evening we had a num- ber of the members of the Victoria Col- lege Glee Club with us. Mr. Stinson, one of their numlier, gave the address, his text being: " That in all things He might have the pre-eminence. " The talk was greatly enjoyed by all, as were also the musical selections render- ed by the members of the Quai ' tette. Another chapel service which was greatly enjoyed was the one at which Miss Bennett and Colnirn of Vic- toria College spoke. Tliey explained to us the Student Christian Movement of Canada, and as a result of their visit it was decided that we change our Y.W.- C.A. into the S.C.M., beginning Septem- ber next. A new constitution was drafted and we are now affiliated with the other colleges and universities of the Dominion, in this splendid student Christian association. The Baccalaureate sermon was deliv- ered by the Rev. R. J. D. Simpson, one of the General Secretaries of the Meth- odist Church. The talk was based on the text " Except a corn of wheat fall into th? ground and die, it abideth alone ; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. " It was a splendid appeal to the girls, and particularly to the Graduating Class, to be ready to make necessary sacrifices in order that living might become most worth while. 28 VOX COLLEGll As a result of a stimulating address by Mr. Haslam in the Fall, on account of the Upper Canada Bil)le Society, the students contributed $25.00 to the or- ganization, which gave the school a life membership in thi Upper Caiuida Bible Society. This membersliip by the unanimous vote of the meml)e} ' s of the " Y " was vested in Miss Maxwell. Following the preced;nt of the pre- vious year, the " Y " presented to the college an oak pulpit and a pulpit bible. These gifts were accepted on behalf ol ' the college by Mr. Farewell, who in a few words expressed appreciation ol: ' the happy relationships which exist be- tween the society and the school. The pulpit adds greatly to the decorat ve effect of the Concert Hall and really fills a long felt need. One of the opportunities for service in the town during the year was afford- ed by the Old People ' s Home. On a number of occasions a group of students visited these folk, taking with them candies and presenting a short pro- gram. It was a great delight to see the response of the old people in their happy smiles and enthusiastic applause. The Annual Bazaar was held on De- cember 3rd, and was a great success n every way. It was opened by Miss Maxwell at 3 p.m., and, as usual, there was a great rush at the fancy work booth which was prettily decorated in pastel (?) shades. The many dainty articles donated by the faculty and stu- dents were artistically arranged by Jean llickling, Helen Hughes and Lu- ella Scott. The candy booth, in charge of Elmy- i-a Nicholls and Myrtle Nesbitt, was very attractively decoi-ated in Christ- mas colors and the homemade candy was put up in Christmas boxes and bas- kets made by some of the girls. The Athletic booth was decorated n the " Two Blues " and the Kewpie bride and her attendants made quite an at- tractive centre piece. O.L.C. Christmas cards, sv eaters and penants were popu- lar .sellers and the booth was a great success under the direction of Miss Murchie, Gertrude Banwell and Winni- fred Hambly. Helen Johnston and Marjorie Kisbey dressed as boy and girl, had charge of a very original fish pond. The west mantle piece in the Common Room was decorated in red lattice work and one could easily imagine that Santa would come down the chimney at any minute. The articles to be fished for were placed INTERPRET AS YOU WILL vox COLLEGll 29 ill the grate and " fishino ' ' was a popu- lar sport during the afternoon. The Tea Room was prettily decoraterl in Christmas colors and was in charge of Marion Gill and Madeline Tuson. Financially the Bazaar was all that could be expected. The girls felt that the profits should be devotjd to philan- thropic work and gladly agreed to dis- tribute them as follows: 10 per cent for the Old People ' s Home 10 per cent to the Star Santa Glaus Fund 10 per cent to the Muskoka Hospital for Consumptives. the S.C.M. in our school will make a good beginning next Fall, and we wish the officers and members of the new or- ganization every success in the coming year. ACCOUNT OF SPEAKERS It has been our privilege this year to hear three especially brilliant women, Mrs. MacDonald, better known as L. M. Montgomery, was the first of these. On November 4th, in the Methodist church, this gifted Canadian author gave a number of readings from her own Y.WX.A. EXECUTIVE, l92i-22 and the lialance to the Y.W.C.A. At the last " Y " meeting Myrtle Nes- bitt was unanimously elected President and Beatrice Carruthers was elect ?d Secretary for the coming year, under the new S. C. M. Seven students, who are returning in th? Fall, have registered as delegates to the S. C. M. conference to be lield in Septemlier at Elgin House, Muskoka. We fnd that with the inspiration and vision receiv- ed by those wlio attend the conference works, providing a delightful entertain- ment for her hearers. Mrs. Nellie L. McClung came to us on Saturday, November 27th. An ex- cced ' ngly tine speaker, Mrs. McClung charmed her audience, and, what is more, gave is all something to remem- ber and carry away with us. She gave us a brief account of her recent visit to England, and, touching on our own problems, stressed the need for Social Service workers in the West. 30 VOX COLLEGII On February 9th, we were indeed for- woman, and listening to her, certain in- tunate in having Mrs. Pankhurst speak eidents in her active political life took to us. Her subject was " The Duties of on new light, making us wonder, if, Citizenship, " and she showed us the after all, there had not been the neces- higher, finer side of our duties as wom- s.ty for just such actions, in view of en citizens-to-be.

THE ELEMENTARIES 32 VOX COLLEGIl EXPRESSION NOTES All the lasses have their lads and All the lasses liave their clubs. And so the Expression Class has its Dramatic Club whose ofificers this year were as follows : — President — Jean L. Hickling Vice-President — Helen Hughes Secretary — Alicia Hambly Treasurer— Leila M. Hunter Meetings were held every third Thursday of each month and we always had a nice program and a pleasant and informal time together. After the re- freshments had been passed second or third warning invariably informed us that it was time to hie us away to our various halls. On the evening of May 18th the Art, Commercial, Domestic Science and Dra- matic Clubs held a joint social evening in the Drawing Room. As soon as the members had all arrived slips of paper with part of a proverbial saying writ- ten thereon were passed. She who had " All that glitters " began to look for " is not gold " , and so on, ' till each had a partner and then the contests were Xjassed. Each answer was the name of a poet or author. The brain-racking had just begun when Whitby ' s lights went on strike. After a few minutes ' waiting in patience several departed through the mystic darkness to procure candles. Ol taining enough to light the drawing room the contestants resumed their mental efforts. Miss Wright and Miriam Eckert were the winners of the book of poems. A few g-ames were played and then a short program was enjoyed, after which the refreshments were brought with great difficulty from the shadowy re- gions of the Domestic Science Room. Despite the firefly-like lighting sys- tem every one had a thoroughly enjoy- able time and just before leaving sang " Auld Lang Syne " very heartily. Bach year the Club leaves something in the studio and the Class of ' 22 pur- chased two chairs and a picture-rod. Now the studio needs a long mirror, that those who are climbing the rungs of the ladder of Expression may see when they are making nice round " o ' s " and proper " ah ' s " , " scab ' s, " and " zah ' s. " ' We have had a very happy year to- gether and it is with regret that those who are not coming back realize that each day finds us doing things for the last time within the dear old walls, and when September comes around again we just know right well where our thoughts will be. Miss Ball is the embodiment of help- fulness and enthusiasm and seems to do more work in 24 hours than one would imagine possible. Always ready to ad- vise and help and in coaching plays she is vintiring and we wonder how she can possibly be so patient. On the night of Hallowe ' en the Dra- matic Club made its first debut into so- ciety and contributed a sketch from L. M. Montgomery ' s " The Golden Road " to the program. Then on January 20th, the Juniors gave their stunt " Maid To Order " . On the 21st we all hailed with delight President Southwick ' s annual visit to the school. The President read from Sheridan ' s " The Rivals " part II., after which he was forced shall I say, or clapped into reading " The Camel ' s Lament " a fa- vorite with the girls. The following evening he read Rich- ard III. The Dramatic Club presented their mid-year play March 10. It was Lucette Ryley ' s sparkling and delightful com- edy " Mice and Men. " The story was based on the old say- ing " The best-laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley. " Peggy, a little foundling is chosen from ten girls and adopted by Mark Embury, a scientist and scholar. His intentions are to raise and train her so that she might attain to his ideal of perfect womanhood and ultimately he hopes to make her his wife. vox COLLEGll 33 In spite of her guardian ' s rigid care, Peggy grows np to be a beautiful young girl with whom young George Lovell, Mark Embury ' s scapegrace nephew, falls i]i love. The last act shows the resigned, dis- appointed philosopher giving the beau- tiful home, which he had just had built for his prospective bride, to Peggy and Capt. Lovell, seeing that Peggy returns his nephew ' s affection. The cast was: Peter, (Embury ' s servant) — Eleanor Wilson. Mrs. Deborah, (Embury ' s housekeep- er) — Helen Anglin. Mark Embury, (scholar, scientist and philosopher) — Jean Hickling. Roger Goodlake, (Embury ' s friend) — Leila Hunter. Joanna Goodlake (wife of Roger) — Helen Hughes.

The Commencement play, " Poman- der Walk " by Lois N. Parker, was giv- en the evening of June 13th. It was considei-ed by many far superior to any play put on by the Dramatic Club this or last year. The presentation met with instantaneous success as evidenced by the frequent applause. It was feared for several days before the 13th that it would be impossil)le to put on the play, Sir Peter being confin- ed to " his " room with asthma, how- ever, he rallied and summoning all his strength for the occasion did his part most creditably. Great credit is reflected upon the stage manager for the erection of five such cunning little houses, although they proved to be really more orna- mental than substantial when Dr. Sternroyd and Jack came to blows and almost caused No. 4 and 5 to become naught but a wreckage. The cast was as follows — John Sayle, 10th Baron Otford— Lorna Rumball. Lieut., The Hon. Jack Sayle — Alicia Hambly. Admiral Sir Peter Antrobus — Eliza- beth Caswell. Jerome Brooke-Hoskyn — Jean Hick- ling. . The Rev. Jacob Sternroyd, D.D., F. S.A.,— Leila M. Hunter. Mr. Basil Pringle — Jean Elliot. Jim — Betty Harrison. The Muffin-Man— Lois Laft ' oley.

Monsieur and Madame Pillion, who came to us near the beginning of our school year gave us a most delightful recital. It cannot be expressed on pa- per how Madame ' s beautiful voice was enjoyed. Just think of the pleasure sive year the Toronto String Quartette has visited O.L.C. we all hope theirs will be a permanent annual visit. What a privilege is ours, the oppor- tunity of hearing these great artists ; the various emotions passing through our minds, the exquisite pleasure de- rived, then the feeling of despondency " surely it is impossible to reach such " HANDSOME IS THAT HANDSOME DOES ' Monsieur must derive from her violin, for he played simply beautifully. As for Conradi ! I could not say enough. We certainly will never for- get his superb tone and wonderful tech- nique. The splendid recital given by Miss T. Pemberton our violin teacher, assisted by Miss G. Klombies, one of our vocal teachers, was greatly enjoyed. We did so want Miss Pemberton to come back to O.L.C. next year but apparently the knowledge that someone else also want- ed her prevailed and our loss is his gain. We wish her every happiness. Although this is the seventh succes- heights, " then, greatest of all, the in- spiration to emulate their artistic achievements. THE GLEE CLUB The Victoria College Glee Club, whom we were very pleased to have as guests for a few hours, spared their quartette, and a violinist for Sunday evening chapel service at the College. The Concert given in the Methodist Church, Whitby, by this talented Club, was most enjoyable. We sincerely hope that we may have the pleasure of list- ening to them again next year. vox COLLEGII 35 0. L. C. RECITAL The concert given by the Music and Expression Departments, in the Toron- to Conservatory of Music on Tuesday, May 16th, was very successful and was apparently thoroughly enjoyed by a large audience. It may be of interest to reproduce the programme which reads as follows : — " Piano — Mendelssohn " Concerto G Minor " (1st Movement) — Marjorie Kisbey. (orchestral accompaniment on 2nd piano by Helen Johnston). Vocal — Donizetti " Convien Partir " — Jane Merchant. Reading — Noyes, " The Highway man, " Beatrice Carruthers.

" The Okticlos Club This year 1921-22 has proved one of the most successful the Okticlos Club has experienced. At our first meeting the following of- ficei ' s were elected — Hon. President — Mr. Atkinson President — Miss Helen Johnston Vice-President — Miss Marjorie Kis- bey. Secretary — Miss Marjorie Speers Treasurer — Miss Jane Merchant Executive Committee — The Misses Jessie Gardiner, Lillian Mitchell, Phyl- lis Hipwell. Throughout the year the officers and executive have worked in closest har- mony and have done their best in mak- ing the year a successful one. In November we gave our annual tea. Every member was enthusiastic and as a result it proved to be a great success, both socially and financially. With the money in the treasury, the Okticlos bought some new furnishings, making the studio much more attract- ive. We draped the picture, painted by Mr. Greene for the Club last year with blue velour hangings and placed a bronze plate with inscription below the painting-. We also purchased an in- verted light, and books for the book- case, and at our last meeting decided to have a picture of our presidents and of our graduating A.T.C.M. ' s framed and hung- in the studio. During the year the Club has held fairly regular meetings and these al- ways proved to be instructive and en- joyable. Our last gathering was ' one of the ' ' best ever. ' ' We were honored to have as our guests Miss Maxwell, Mr. Pare- well, and other members of the Faculty. This evening was a happy one for the Okticlos, chiefly because six of its mem- bers were successful in passing their A.T.C.M., piano examination and every- one was offering heartiest congratula- tions to these successful students. Miss Johnston took the opportunity of thanking the executive and Club as a whole for its splendid co-operation with here in the past year. Also it was only appropriate that we show Mr. Atkin- son, teacher and comrade to us all, our very great appreciation for his interest in the Club as a whole and each mem- ber as an individual, and so we tried to express our very deep gratitude by pre- senting him with a leather club bag. Miss Jolmston made the presentation. Mr. Atkinson acknowledged our suiall gift in his usual happy style and assur- 36 VOX COLLEGII eel us of his i))terest in tiie Ciul) and its ineubers and promised tliat lie would use th ' -; bag on his weekly visits to the Coll.

In it we studied the government and kept up with current events. Just before the Dominion elections we had women representatives of each party — Miss Constance Bolton for the Coiiservatives ; Mrs. A. H. Beaton for the Liberals, and Mrs. J. W. Amos for the Progressives. On the niglit of the Dominion elec- tions we elected our own cabinet and the returns of the Dominion elections were telegraphed to us. After these elections we held our meetings in parliament form. At one of these meetings we had a very interesting debate: " Resolved that woman ' s contact with the business world makes her a less pleasant com- panion in the home " , in which four girls took part. During the year we also had the pleasure of having Mrs. Nellie McClung and IMrs. Pankhurst address us. While the provincial parliament was in session a party of about twenty five went up to Toronto to atteiul one of the session, after which they met Premier Drury. They also visited the museum and the Grange. At the time of tlie campaign Tor Rus- sian relief the civics class raised a sum of approximately $200 by means of a hard time social and by private Cv)n- tributions and faculty. Thus the first year of the Civics Class closed success- fully. COMMERCIAL Early in November the Commercial Club held its first meeting. The offic- ers were elected. Edith Pool was made President. It was decided that the " Club " woidd have the same pin every year. At our next meeting Mr. Farewell fa- vored us with an address on " The Busi- ness Woman, " which we enjoyed very much. A social meeting was held in Febru- ary. We all enjoyed the games and contests which were gotten up by the programme committee for that night. As the end of the year was drawing near the Clubs, Dramatic, Art, Domestic Science and Commercial, held a joint meeting in the drawing room. When the fun was at its height the lights went out but that didn ' t stop the fun. After games and contests, a short mu- sical programme was enjoyed. The candles were very effective and rather spooky. Although our Club is snmll it is cer- tainly well reiiresented. Our President represented us nobly by being voted on the Strathcona Shield and winning the silver cup on Field Day. 38 VOX COLL EG II Gertrude Banwell has spent two years at O.L.C. and is graduating- from the Domestic Science Department.

A COMICAL COUNTRY COURTSHIP A lovely little lamb was loping down the lane ; A pretty poodle puppy was playing on the plain ; A handsome harnessed horse was haul- ing in the hay ; A wicked wild wolf was waiting in the way; A cruel, clever cat was crying in the clover; A listless little lassie was lingering for her lover. A ragged rufit ' ian rival came roaring- down the road, And took a tiny tadpole that was turn- ing to a toad, And drove the dainty damsel into a dirty ditch ; Oh, woeful was the wailing of that wet and weeping witch ! Her big and brutal brother came l)el- lowing like a bull And fairly frightened to a faint the frantic, faithless fool ; A tall intrepid trooper was trembling at the trick, And said, " you silly stupid, I ' ll strike you with a stick.

Cockerill. vox C 0 L L E G 1 1 .39 Household Science At our annual dinner it was unani- mously decided that this has been one of the most successful years the club has experienced for some time. Our teacher, Miss Dowsou, has, as always, been ever kind and sym,pathetic ; tol- erant of our many mistakes and blun- ders — always ready to lend a helping- hand when the usual difficulties pre- sented themselves. For these and many other splendid qualities which she pos- sesses, we have all learned to love her dearly, and those of us who are leaving this year to take up various branches of the work she has taught us, will never forget our two years under her splendid instruction. If, by any chance she should leave the teaching staff of O.L.C., the least we can do is to wish her God-speed and the best of luck in whatever she may undertake in the future. The class is larger this year than it has been for some time, there being three seniors and fifteen juniors. We have regretted that more of last year ' s girls did not return to complete their course, but there promises to be a large graduating class next year. The officers of the club, to whom a great deal of credit is due for the sue-- cess of the club this year, are : — President — Madeline Tuson Vice-President — Marjorie Reynolds Secretary — Nellie Edwards Treasurer — Ruth Connor. Owing to the illness of her mothei ' . Ruth Connor was called home shortly after Christmas, not to return, and Myrtle Nesbit was elected to fill the va- cancy. We have had our monthly meetings regularly, and they proved to be both interesting- and instructive. Tlie var- ious programmes included — a talk by Miss Ball on " Play in the Home; " " Colour as it is Applied to our Daily Lives, ' ' by Miss Wright, and an enjoy- able talk by Miss Dowson on " Gas- tronomic Literature " or " Poetry of Foods. " An interesting social evening was held when the Art, Commercial, Dramatic and Domestic Science Clubs held their final meting- together in the drawing room. The Dramatic Club arranged a splendid programme and (as usual) we served refreshments. Our tea, which was held shortly after Christmas and in the gymnasium this year, was, as usual, a great success. Our dinner, which was instead, a lovely cold supper, was enjoyed im- mensely ; not only the preparing and eating of it, but the cleaning up as well. At the close of a short speech the president presented Miss Dowson with a club bag as a token of our apprecia- tion for all her kindness to us through the year. We went to bed that night tired but very happy, after all our ex- citement and fun. Now that we have all tried and pass- ed our exams., for the most part suc- cessfully, we leave for the summer holi- days and some of us for g ood, with the realization of a year well spent, of things accomplished, and to those of us who are returning next year do we w ish the best of luck and an equally success- ful year as the one just past. S lEtT S«PLt AND tWLlSH ART " The useful encourages itself; for the multitude produce it ; and no one can dispense with it ; the beautiful must be encouraged ; i ' or few can set it forth and many need it. ' ' — Goethe. The officers elected by the Art Club this year were Hilda Jarvis, Reva Richardson and Winnifred Clarke — President, Secretary and Treasurer re- spectively. Through illness, we lost our President early in the year, but hoping for her return another was not elected and the secretary did the duties of both. The Club has as its object the study of the broader aspect of Pictorial Art, which are sometimes lost sight of in the daily routine. The Art Director, Mr. Greene, gave an illustrated talk on " The Composition of Pictures " at one meeting and Miss Wright took charge of two meetings, one on costume model v ith our school nurse posing, and the other on a comparison of the Lives and works of the Old Masters and modern Artists. Miss Maxwell gave the Club a delightful evening when she addressed them on the subject, " Some Aspects of Art in the Poetry of Wordsworth and Browning. " Following this talk on Art from the literary viewpoint we were shown the scientific side in a lecture on Light by Miss Child. This was particu- larly interesting to the girls studying Theory in colour. At the last meting the four Clubs of the school — the Domestic Science, Dra- matic, Commel■c■ l and Art, 1 old a jcini: social evening with games, a short pri ■ gramme and refreshments, which was ■greatly enjoyed by everyone. The almost unbroken fine weather t his spring has helped the outdoor sket- ching class to have a good showing of work and many bits of the surrounding landscape have been captured in water colours and oil. As usual, the black and white section of the Exhibition is the largest and is the proof of the solid foundation of freehand drawing in charcoal and monochome which the Juniors have laid for their further en- deavours in this department. Splendid work has also been done in the Public and High School Classes and several have been recommended for special work in the Art Department. The china painting has a place in the Ex- hibition which is on during commence- ment week. The Awards in the Art Department were as follows : — General Course — Jmaior Year — Reva Richardson. One half of the require- ments for the Junior year have been covered by Viola Smart and Virginia Charles. Household Art — Highest Standing- for the year — IVIadeline Tuson. Hon- ourable mention — Lorna Schell. The Painting and Decoration of Ch ' na — Reva Richardson. Elem " ntary and High School Draw- ing — The following are recomm?nded for special work in Art Department — Florence Eastmond, Mary Faircloth, Lois Newberry, Virginia Frid, Betty Wvitfht. Athletics It was a very exeithiji ' luouieiit on October the fourth at eleven o ' clock a. m., when the Athletic Association was organized. The following officers were elected : — Miss Murehie — Honorary President Gertrude Banwell — President Nellie Edwards — Vice President Luella Scott — Secretary Winifred Hambly — Treasurer As an executive we tried to carry on the A. A. with more vigour than in past years, and we certainly hope we have succeeded. We would like to take this oppor- tunity to thank the girls for their splen- did co-operation with the Association. This year every girl joined the Athletic and entered into the activities with much " pep " and " vim. " It was impossible to have a Fall Field Day this year but the Spring one cer- tainly made up for it. The girls en- tered into everything with lots of " pep " making it very exciting.. The Fall and Spring swimming meets were also a great success, and the Gymnas- ium exhibition was the best there has ever been in the History of O.L.C. We wish the students of next year every success witli the A.A., and hope it will be better than it has ever been in past years. BASKET BALL Our l)asket ball this year has not been what we would like to have liad it. We were not able to arrange as many games as we would like to have had, but in those we had even if the girls were not always " succesful win- nei ' s " they were " good loosers " and worked hard. We were very unfortunate in losing our jumping center, Ruth Connor, who had to leave school after Christmas. The team certainly missed her very much, and we hope that she will be able to play next year. Out of the fourteen girls chosen to play on the squad, the six were not chosen to play on the team till just be- fore the game. This brought all the girls out to practice, which they at- tended faithfully. Our first game this year was played with Oshawa High School Saturday. October 15, on their court. It was a very close and interesting game, the score being 27-25 in favour of O.L.C. We were fortunate enough to be abb- to arrange a return game which was 42 VOX COLLEGIL played in our gym on October 27. This game was also very close, making the score 23-21 in O.L.C. ' s favour. On Saturday, March 4, we had a very exciting game when Humberside Col- legiate accepted our challenge and came down and played us. It was a very thrilling and exciting game, mak- ing the score in the end 22-17 in Hum- berside ' s favour. Two weeks later our team had the privilege of going up to Humberside to play, taking with them a junior and senior team. Tlie teams left on the 10.33 train with Miss Murchie and were greatly excited. Some of the Humberside girls met them at the station and took them up to the collegiate in cars. After a very refreshing luncheon, which the Humberside girls gave us, the games commenced. The senior team played the first half, at the end of it Humberside was ahead with the score 19-0. Then the junior team played and did not do as badly for O.L.C., as the seniors. The seniors picked up a little in the second half, but the odds were too great making the -g ' ame Humberside ' s with the score of 27-8. The junior team, although they lost, played a much better and cleaner game, than the seniors. The score was 17-14 in favour of Humberside. We also challenged Branksome Hall and Havergal College, but they were unable to play us, so these were all the games that were able to be arranged for this year. We hope that next year the girls will be ahle to do much better, and we wish them all kinds of " good luck. " GYMNASIUM EXHIBITION This year the Gymnasium exhibition was the best ever given here. The drills were perfect and came off with much " snap " and " vigour " . Also the march was excellent, not a head out of line all through the long lines. The march ended by making perfect O.L.C. The dumb-bell, indoor clul) drill and free arm exercises were excellent. The lines were very straight and the girls kept such wonderful time and rhy- thm. They also handled their dumli- bells and clubs exceedingly well, which showed much practice. Also the apparatus work was a great feature on the programme. This is where the girls showed their skill and how well trained they were. While one girl was on the travelling rings others would be on the horizontal lad- der and swinging rings. Besides this there was a great deal of skillful work done on the horse, breech and ropes. Tlie breech and ropes were new pieces of apparatus this year. The dances were very effective, with lovely costumes bringing out the nature of the dance. Marjorie Nicol and Jean Hepburn did a very pretty dance, " Southern Sweet-hearts " in old-fashioned cos- tumes. ' ' " The Fountain, " " Gypsy Life, " and " Spring Morning- " were pretty dances and very effective with coloured lights thrown on them, which added to their beauty if that was possible. Betty Lawler, one of Miss Murchie ' s junior pupils from town, did the little dance " Bo Peep " very gracefully. " Wedgewood China " was also a very pretty and graceful dance by the Scott twins and Jean Sutherland. This year we had a new feature on the programme, " Pyramids. " There were ten pyramids, which came off with lots of " pep " and causing many sensational gasps. At the close of the exhibition the girls presented Miss Murchie with roses as a very small token of their thanks and appreciation for her very hard work. Jane Merchant was also present- ed with a bouquet of sweet peas and roses from the girls for her splendid piano accompaniment. THE ATHLETIC TEA We heartily agree with the girls who vox C O ]. L E G I I 43 exclaimed that the Athletic Tea was the best of the year. The doors of the drawiii room and Common room opened at 3.30 sharp, on Saturday, October 22, the day of the Athletic Tea, and the great crowd of girls were allowed to go in for tea. The rooms were very artistically dec- orated in light blue and dark blue streamers, our school colours, with a rose on each table, which added great- ly to the coziness and beauty of the rooms. The waitresses carried out the colour scheeme further by wearing- dainty little caps and aprons of tlie same colours. During the afternoon Helen Johns- ton, Marjorie Kisby and Jane Mer- chant played selcdions on the piano. Also Leora Moore played the violin and Velma LaFrance sang. This was a very dfdightful irnd greatly ai ' pieciated by everyone. SWIMMING Last year the school won 74 rewards and came third in the Dominion with the University of Toronto first with ISO and the Y.W.C.A. second with 94. But this year we have made a record. We have now about 150 rewards for the year and hope to come even nearer the top than last year. Eleven girls have won the llonourary Instructress badge; 20 girls their silver medal and 36 won their bronze medal- lions. Not one girl tried her examina- tion and was tmable to finish it. This year has been a reeoi ' d and will be hard to beat, but we wish the girls of next year every success. Both the Fall and Spring Aquatic meets also brought forth good results The girls entered into the different numbers with much enthusiasm. The i ' all meet was very successfully won by Alice Lees, with larjorie Nicol second. The Spring meet was even more ex- citing for the girls who had their silver inedal competed for the gold medal, ])resented by Mr. Farewell and the girls who had the bronze competed for the silver inedal given ])y Miss jNlur- chie. It was a very close race for the Gold Medal between Alice Lees and Florence Eastmond, but in the end Florence was the successful winner with points and Alice a very close second with points. Grace Elliot came third with points. These girls did very well, also the other girls who were competing for the medal. Their diving and stunts were very good and races very close and ex- citing. The competition for the Silver Medal was also very thrilling and exciting. Virginia Frid was the lucky winner with Virginia Charles second and Gwendoline Webb third. One of the most exciting events for the Athletic part of the year was the Spring Field Day, held Friday, June 9. The girls competed for the l)eautiful cup given by Mr. Farewell. They en- tered into the activities of the day with much " pep " and at the end of the af- ternoon Edith Pool was the successful winner of the cup and won it well with a large number of points to her credit. Saturday, June 10 we voted for the girl who should have her name on the Strathcona Shield for greatest excel- lence in Sportsmanship, Womanly Qual- ities and Scholarship, and everyone was more than pleased with the election of Edith Pool for this. " Poolie " ol)tained a very high majority of the ballots cast and everyone was delighted. Things We Never Hear: Are you promised? " Second " gone yet? Is the mail list up yet? Sure you don ' t mind?
