" If we only saw what we thin about, we would thin very differently about it. " If we saw what we think about — ! Would not some of our thoughts appal us if we were to meet them face to face? If that unkind thought that sometimes comes into cur mind about another girl in the school should appear to us, how distorted and ugly it would be. And how we should hate to be the cause of bringing anything so horrible into existence. On the other hand, if our kindly thoughts could be seen, like a glorious picture, or a symmetrical bit of sculpturing; how thrilled we would be at our ability to create so great a beauty, and we would try very hard to drive from our minds all but beautiful thoughts. And, if others could see our thoughts — ! Would that make us think differently? And yet, although our thoughts cannot actually be seen, the result of them is very evident. Each angry thought brands us; each happy thought leaves its mark on our faces. Since what we think is what we are, we would do well to follow the words of Archibald Lampman : " Wisest is he who never quite secure Changes his thoughts for better day by day; To-morrow some new light will shine, be sure And thou shalt see thy thoughts another way. " " To every man there openeth A way and ways and a way. " Trafalgar bids good-bye to another year. June flits by and the Seniors of 1 2? are leaving her. Keenly, yet wistfully, she peers into each heart as one and all cross over the threshold. " The High Soul climbs the High ' Way, The Low Soul gropes the Low, And in between on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. " Climb! Grope! Drift. Each girl to follow her way. Some instinctively climb, others naturally grope, and most unthinkingly drift. " But to every man there openeth A High Way and a Low, And every man decideth The way his soul shall go. " And so Trafalgar watches her daughters. There, on the down road, groping and stumbling, are the souls who serve " Self " ; there, climbing the uphill road, are jthe souls who live, the souls who love, the souls who fight on; and on the misty flats, those who merely exist. Up on the hills the challenge rings out: " Come out and feel the storm go by! " Perhaps some in the misty flats, or even on the Low Road, hear the call, and, turning eagerly, scale the heights. Here and there a climber, overcome by the storms, loses her grip and drops back to lower levels. " A Way and Ways and a ' Way! " It is for us to decide. Each of us must choose a Way, and only one. No one can travel two roads. The cool shadows of the valley road are tempting, but the windy hills — they call, and there is a challenge in their voice. — V.M.

" February the eighth was a day of great rejoicing in the Wright family, for on that celebrated day Betty placed firmly her lit- tle feet on the ladder of fame and has climbed steadily ever since. Before Betty came to O. L. C. she re- ceived her Public School education at Brown School in Toronto. Leaving there she spent two years in California. She fin- ally decided to come to Whitby, where she has been a very loyal student for five years. She has filled her many offices with ad- mirable capability, making a very dignified and staid Senior Vice-President and at the same time an enthusiastic Athletic Vice- President. Betty is graduating in Domestic Science this year, also taking her Junior Piano and Junior Vocal. She is going to train, we believe, as a nurse, and although we hate to lose her, and know that we will miss her very much, we all wish her every success and happi- ness in her future life. Favourite expression — " Oh! For John ' s sake. " Hobby — Doing things she says she can ' t. GRADUATING CLASS (6ran» lEUinl Vent, vidi, vici. April second, nineteen seven, was the eventful day in Toronto. Eleven years later Grace arrived at O.L.C. and has been here ever since. She has the honour of being here the longest of any girl in the school, seven, years, and was, this year, Valedic- torian. The college has been a home to her for so long that we can readily un- derstand how hard it will be for her to leave it. We can safely say that Grace is an all- round girl and proficient in every sport. Last year she won the gold medal in swim- ming and a medal for the highest mark in Intermediate Piano. She has a very bril- liant record. She has held offices in the Elementary, Freshman and Sophomore classes, winning a prize in her entrance year for the highest standing in her class. She is now graduating in her M. E. L. course. This year she is president of the Chromatic Club, on the Vox staff, and sec- retary of the Senior Class. She not only takes a great interest in sports but in S. C. M. work also. Next year Grace intends to go to " Vic. " Favourite expression — " Oh, for heaven ' s sake. " Hobby — " Dressing up. " 3fan fOauslauglj " The best of wisdom is a cheerful grin! " Jean, or better known as " Granny, " is one of our few Brantford girls. It seems that in Woodstock about eighteen years ago the Morning Post of August twelfth came out with the announcement of a daughter to Mr. and Mrs. John Bauslaugh. Great excitement! But oh! if one could have but seen her future! Early in life she moved to Brantford. Through Public and High School she flit- ted her way, gracefully taking her Junior Matric. Then! One sunny morning a cata- logue caught her eye, an O.L.C. catalogue. Whitby was the place for her! She arrived here in September, 1924, and throughout the year has proved her- self an able student at Honour Matric work and is liked by one and all. During the latter part of the year she has success- fully filled the office of Senior Class Treas- urer. We will miss " Granny " a great deal. Best of luck at Varsity, old girl! Favourite expression — My cottony! Hobby — Living up to her nickname — ■ ' slow motion. " GRADUATING CLASS " I ma e it a rule to believe only what I understand. " One bright day in August, nineteen six, Rhoda E. first entered this conglo- merated world and proceeded to attempt its reformation. After several years of idleness at home she found herself attend- ing Brown School, thus adding greater glory to its already famous name. In the lapse of time she directed her footsteps to- ward Bishop Strachan School, where for three years Rhoda received a great deal of attention. Suffice it to say, she arrived in our midst in the autumn of nineteen twen- ty-three, and since that time has been one of our most energetic girls. Last year Rhoda was on the Vox and Year Book Staff, and this year is the cap- able Editor of our much loved school mag- azine. Her energy has been directed mostly towards sports, in which she has excelled. As manager of the basketball team and a splendid forward on it and as defence on the hockey team, she has aided the school in its many conquests. Graduat- ing as an M.E.L., we wish Rhoda Eliza- beth the greatest success and happiness in the years to come. Favourite expression — " My Godfrey de Bouillon. 11 Favourite hobby — Searching for new thrills. Srile SUjersmt " She is young but wise. " A product of Brantford, 1907 A.D. Flourished for a number of years there, where she was successfully raised and educated. History is a little indefinite at his point. Whether she wore hair rib- bons or not, no one seems to know. Blossomed at O.L.C. to which she came with three other Brantford girls in order to improve the school and to take Honor Matriculation. Appearance. (1) Hair — dark. (2) Eyes ditto. (3) Skin fair. (4) Height — medium. (5) Breadth — narrow. Disposition — witty, original, clever — and fun! Ambition — To be editor of the Poet ' s Corner in the Mimico Morning Milk — but seriously she must be contemplating mat- rimony or Dietetics for next year she in- tends taking Household Science at U. of T. Usual Exercise — " Push 11 . Excess Energy dissipated in Latin. Daily Dirge — " II faut que je work. " Idiosyncrasy — Making up Cross Word Puzzles. Favourite Expression — Wouldn ' t that blow your hat in the river. Page Twenty GRADUATING CLASS Hargarpt (Eolrman " The thirst to now and understand The things that are most excellent. " Entered on the " Book of Life " in nine- teen six. " One Margaret Elizabeth Coleman. " " Address, Burlington, Ontario. " Marg was brought up in Burlington and acquired her knowledge at Burlington Pub- lic School, then started her High School course in Hamilton Collegiate. She at- tended that school three years and then, thinking that she would like to take two years ' work in one, thus taking her Pass and Honour Matric in one year, she de- cided to come to O. L C, knowing that she could accomplish what she desired, here. She arrived in September, nineteen twenty- four, and is graduating this year with M.E.L., taking home with her not only the Silver Medal for second in gen- eral proficiency, but also a scholarship. Next year will find her at her home in Sutherland, Florida, where she will likely take up her music again. " Don ' t eat too many oranges, Marg— nor forget to dream a little of O. L. C. as you wander under the shades of the Flori- da palms. " Favourite expression - " Just wait a minute! " Hobby — Writing letters. ISjfUn iHfUmu " And cloudy the day or stormy the night The s y of her heart was always bright. " None of us know Helen very well, but we do know that she is very jolly, and al- ways has a smile for everyone. Maybe it is because she lives in Port Perry and is so proud of her home town. At any rate, " A merry heart doeth good like medicine, " and to see Helen once a week at the college laughing with everyone gives a fresh twang to one ' s own dull disposition. Her education was received in the Port Perry Public and High Schools, where she climbed from the lowest rung to the high- est of Honour Matric, and now she is a member of the Senior Class of ' 25. Her music comes to her as easily as skipping classes comes to most of us, and this year she has graduated with her A.T.C.M., in which she made a very good mark, and won the gold medal. " Three lusty cheers for Helen! " Favourite expression — " Oh! You bet! " Her idea of perfect bliss is to practise ten hours a day. " Bon Chance, Helen! " " Good sport in all good things! " In the village of Lanark, early on the morning of August eighth, seventeen long years ' ago, Edith, better known as " Ede, " first marvelled at her tiny toes. At the age of eight " Ede " found herself in " The Little Red School House " near Lanark. From there two years of contin- uation school in Lanark and finally O.L.C. in nineteen twentytwo. She was a junior for two years, taking her Junior Matric, and this year finds her a senior, graduating in Commercial, a two year course which she has successfully made in one, and is taking with her not only her diploma but the prize for penmanship. Active in sports, Ede in her first year captured the " Athletic Cup " and ever since as this and that member of the Ath- letic Executive has swung merrily on her way. She is certainly one of our finest stu- dents and will be missed next year. Favourite Expression — " O! Get off the earth! " Hobby- Wilson. Collecting money for H. A. (grar? Hatrii A pleasant personality to ma e the ship of life ride smooth. " During the year nineteen two, in Glencoe, Ontario, Grace first peeped out upon this glorious world of ours. As we know, she is a Methodist minister ' s daughter, and for this reason I am unable to enumerate the many schools she has graced with her pre- sence. We do know, however, that she at- tended High School in Hamilton, and then later moved to Port Hope, where she com- pleted her Matriculation and where she now lives. Grace is graduating this year in Domes- tic Science, having completed her second year in this course, and we are sure she will live up to her reputation as a very brilliant student of her class, last year winning the Junior Domestic Science medal, and this year the gold for highest proficiency. We hate to have Grace leave us, but we all wish her the very best of luck in the future. Favourite expression — " Oh, I don ' t have to, do I? " Hobby — Doing art needlework. C:V?

" Roared into the small ambitious town of Whitby on the Seventeenth of March, six- teen long years ago, Eileen Desmond, new spring model. Started off in low gear for a rough ride through Whitby Public School. The bumps were many, but she managed to get safely through without los- ing any screws. Slipped the clutch and shot into second for a fast pull through Whitby High School, in which she over- came many dangerous curves and many rocky hills with great success. Right into high into O.L.C. in nineteen twenty-three. Stopped now and then to take up commercial and music. This year she is leaving us, having taken two examin- ations in music, her two year Commercial Certificate and the medal in this course. Next year we expect Eileen is going to Detroit, but we will certainly wel- come her if she decides to come back to O. L. C. and to " her music. " However, we wish her a pleasant jour- ney wherever she goes. Hobby — Dancing the light fantastic. Favourite expression — " Not at all, at all. " IRargumtp Sarkann " Anything Anywhere! Any time! " " Lete " is one of our most energetic workers on the S.C.M. committee. Often, with chocolate bars as bate, has she fished the odd nickel from our pockets for the sake of the heathen Chinese. Not only there does she shine, but she is one of our best Dramatic students, filling the position successfully of Secretary of the Club. With her major course Domes- tic Science and the addition of Junior Vo- cal she is rather a busy young lady. And yet — she is ever ready for fun. Incidentally she was born at Port Perry about nineteen years ago, spending her time at school there before she came to us. And now, a toast to " Lete " . May her chocolate cake, her voice and her dram- atics be appreciated as much in her future life as they are here. " Good luck, Lete! " Favourite expression — - " Aw kids! Be de- cent and get in your rooms. " Hobby — Dropping hints. GRADUATING CL ASS Ifttg iEuana " Do 1 view this world as a vale of tears? Oh! reverend sirs, not I. " Bang! Bang! popped a fire cracker. Two little eyes opened wide. ' Twas the twenty-fourth of May, nineteen six. Nine- teen years later the same wee tot, now no longer a child, entered the gates of Ontario Ladies 1 College to take up her Honour Ma- triculation Course. Before coming to Whitby Betty attended first the Bradford Public School and. wandering still further along the flowery paths of knowledge, en- tered Bradford Collegiate, taking her Jun- ior Matriculation there. She remained out of school for a year, but finding this not entirely to her liking nor that of her parents, she came to our dear old college. Upon leaving here Betty hopes to pursue her studies still further at the Toronto University. Although she has only attended O.L.C. for one year, she is well liked by one and all, and I know all of us wish her happi- ness and good fortune in her future ca- reer. Hobby — Hunting for hairpins. Favourite expression — " Say, do you know what — • " Hartfltt IGoutBf fHanntttrj " She ' s little but she ' s wise, She ' s a terror for her size.

GRADUATING CLASS lElramir iForfoa iHanntng " Tis midnight but small thought have I of sleep. " One of the greatest happenings in the year nineteen five was the arrival of twins at the Manning home. Eleanor, who was later christened " Onie " by her sister, laugh ' ed when she saw what a dreary old world this was, and said to herself: " Now ' s my chance to make things lively! " She attended " Lord Roberts " public school of London, and then High School, and in both places " Onie " excelled herself in carrying out her first resolution. At O.L.C., although first a Sophomore in an academic course, " Onie " later in the year took a violent fancy to Household Science and switched to Junior Domestic. She has proved herself to be the best kind of a sport and right true blue. " Onie " graduates this year in House ' hold Science and is intending to enter Vic- toria Hospital, London, in the summer months for her Pupil Dietetic course, but we hope to have her with us again next year to resume the Matriculation work she so recklessly threw over in her first year. Hobby — Art needle-work. As for a favourite expression — " Onie " doesn ' t talk (?) AUfftt Ifirmtr PurtriH " Hang sorrow! Care will ill a cat, And, therefore, let ' s be merry. " Aileen hails from Parry Sound, where she was born nineteen years ago this June. Perhaps her childhood days were unevent- ful, but we doubt it. Her mischievous eyes, which have gained for her the nick- name, Buster, contradict anything short of pirating the ocean. Buster ' s school days began in Parry Sound, and we are quite sure that she made life interesting for all those in com- mand. At the age of fourteen she came to Toronto, where she entered Harbord Collegiate. Three years later she return- ed to her old home. Buster ' s return to Parry Sound caused so much excitement that she found herself forced to desert the gay and frivolous life and to retreat to the quiet and peace of O. L. C. Since her arrival here she has been busy writing both Junior and Hon- our Matric, as well as studying music. Aileen intends to go to Varsity next year. We wish her the best of luck and hope she wins many laurels and popular- ity, as she has here. Favourite expression — - " Oh loooord! " Hobby — Filing Betty ' s finger nails to thus prevent their loss. GRADUATING CLASS •Pauline (Elariasa Aimma ' " Why should life all labor he? " On the morning of August thirteenth, nineteen six, the Adams household was much disturbed when their new daughter, Pauline, began to exercise her lungs for the first time. Pauline ' s first step in the Educational World was when she entered Havergal College. She spent two years of her school days here, and then switched to Brown School, the first school home of so many O.L.C. ' ites, where she received her Entrance certificate. Next she entered Oak ' wood Collegiate, but the attractions of O. L. C. were too much for her, so in the fall of twenty-three she became a Junior Domestic at " Dear Old Trafalgar. " She immediately became known to her friends as " Pat " and this name has stuck to her all during her two years spent here. Pat graduates this year, taking a House- hold Science certificate back to Toronto with her, and with it she takes the love and best wishes of all her fellow students. Favourite expression — " Girls, third has gone. " Hobby — Working cross-word puzzles. Patrtria (Smnlnj " With gentle yet prevailing force Intent upon her destined course. " Pat first smiled on the gay world at Not- tingham, England, nineteen three. She sang the opening bars of her song of life at a boarding school there, which she attended for several years. At sixteen she came to Canada, taking up her residence in Mont- real. Five years ago she arrived at O.L.C., spending but two years here. After re- maining a year at home the call of the Alma Mater proved too strong for her and she returned for three years more, one year of High School during which she took her Junior Matric, one year of Matric and Vocal combined and then one year of " music " . Last year she received the diploma for the highest standing in Intermediate Vocal, and this year she is graduating with A. T. C M. in same and the silver medal for second proficiency. O. L. C. will doubtless have cause to be proud of Pat in the fu- ture when she makes a name for herself in the musical world. Hobby — Taking snaps. Pet expression — Heaven to Betsy! GRADUATING GLASS m " Cool, unperturbed by stress or hurry, Inclined to wor but not to worry. " Mary claims Oakville, Ontario, not only as her birthplace, but also as her home town, for she has lived there ever since her first birthday, August thirteenth, nineteen four. Having broken the usual number of dolls and wept the usual number of tears, at last she finds herself, as is the custom, attending the usual sort of schools and learn ' ing the usual sort of " cats " and " 2X2 =4 , s. " The thirteenth of the month has cer ' tainly not seemed unlucky to Mary for she has managed to pass through public school and to take her Junior Matnc quite safely. Then Mary made up her mind that her education would not be complete without a year of boarding school, so, packing her trunk, she came to Whitby. Here she has had room-mates, feeds, fun and the ordinary share of hard work. She is leaving us now as a gradu- ate with her M.E.L. Hobby — Collecting stamps. Favouite expression — " I don ' t know " or " I know. " Mtien Vintner " I must be cruel to be ind. " Our dear Bunny first saw the light of day on September the second, nineteen hundred and two, in the little town of Havelock. Owing to the fact that her father is a Methodist minister, Bunny received her public school education in many various places. Before her advent into O. L. C. in nine- teen hundred and twenty-two Bunny spent two years at home. On entering the col- lege she chose as her vocation piano and vocal, making a great success in both. This year she is graduating in vocal with honors and the gold medal. Bunny has also held a number of im- portant offices while at O. L. C. The first year she was vice-president of the Athletic Association. Last year she was president of the S. C. M. and also had the honour of being one of the Councillors for the May Queen. This year Bunny was President of the Honour Club, a position which she filled very successfully. She was also President of the Choral Club. Favorite expression — " Oh! Shoot!! " Hobby — Playing " Pollyanna. " GRADUATING CLASS Urta luttbas " The world ' s all right, serene I sit And joy that I am part of it. " Who peeped out into our great world in nineteen two but a little girl — yes, I ' m pretty sure — who brought great joy to her mother and father. She was given the name Reta Dundas — one more person to assist in populating Toronto. After Reta was a few years old she went to Brown public school and later went to Moulton College in Toronto which started Reta out for her great work. In nineteen twenty she came to O.L.C. and with splendid help from Miss Spence passed her entrance with good standing. She did not return here the following September but went south with her family and took up another course returning to us again in nineteen twenty-three to take the two year commercial course, her ability making it possible for her to graduate this year. She is not coming back next year but we all wish Reta health and every success in the work she is going to take up. She intends to go to Wellesley Hospital to train for a nurse. Favourite Expression — Oh lord! Hobby — Appearing from Betty Brad- ley ' s room at fourth. Tfertta JHay 3aws " Where there s a will there ' s a way. " Positively the first appearance of Verna Jones in America at Merlin, Ontario, in !903 A.D. Of an early age she entered Public School and sailed smoothly through with flying colours. She then embarked on her High School work in London. Having successfully steer- ed her way through the turmoil of mathe- matics, she decided on a musical career. Since Verna was living in Oshawa she chose O.L.C. as her residence. She has worked her way from elementary piano to AT. CM. Besides her music, Verna has been very artistic with her brush and has always been willing to help wherever her talents are needed. This year, until February, Verna was in residence with us again, but the call of home was too great. And now, but once a week we see Verna in the halls of Trafal- gar. We wish you all kinds of luck, Verna, in whatever you undertake to do. Hobby — Painting good-looking men. Favorite Expression — Gee! it was funny. GRADUATING CLASS " Each day as I find it. Nearly nineteen years ago in the dreary month of March there was born in Sandwich, Ont., our cheerful Issie; cheer ' ful, for she is always the same, ready ever to join in any fun or work. She first attended the Sandwich Public School, where we feel sure she made life interesting for all those with whom she came in contact. She later entered Wind sor Collegiate Institute, from which she graduated last year with her Matnc in everything. Since coming to O.L.C. she has been striving for honours in Commercial as well as laurels in swimming.

Naturally then, when the vital question of a stunt was to be settled, we thought it wise to have something wor- thy of our reputation, so we decided upon this idea. We would present to the Fac- ulty and students of O. L. C. several episodes in the life of a modern girl, as seen by — well, most anyone. Followed days of practising in the concert hall, of secrecy behind huge signs — " Engaged to all except Seniors! " — and of warnings — " Sh! She ' s a Jun- ior! " Then were final preparations, the dress rehearsal Friday night, and all day Saturday spent in decorating the gym. So much for the Seniors ' point of view. Meanwhile — On Friday there appeared in the common room a charming poster picturing Peter Pan playing his pipes in his Fairyland home. This was the invitation to our stunt. At the same time on the bulletin board was a notice telling everyone that the " manager ' s office " would be open after 8.30 p.m. so that they could reserve their seats. Much to the disappointment of those who went on time, the very choice seats were already reserved, which helps to show with how much enthusiasm this plan was met. Finally the eventful night dawned — no, fell, and in honour of the occasion, every- one came in evening attire. After a few moments of great suspense and excitement, Beatrice Carruthers, our President, parted the curtains a weeny bit and stepped out to tell the waiting audience something of the design of our entertainment, in addition to what they saw on the program. (Yes, real printed programs!) Then she pre- sented to Miss Maxwell, our honorary teacher, a corsage of violets and sweetheart roses, and to Miss Everson, our advisory teacher, a corsage of deep red roses. Immediately the curtains were parted. The first scene was " A Baby Show at Pine- ville. " Much humour was added to this little musical comedy, if we may call it that, by the quaint costumes, the gestures and antics of the performers. Who was the prize infant? Why, Norah Smith, whose life career we were tracing. The applause and laughter following this scene had scarcely died away when the audience was allowed to witness a very charming, childhood prank, in which the leading characters were — Norah, again, a little boy, Harry Whalmers, and Cobbs, the Gardener. Norah and Harry succeeded in running away to be married, but Cobbs, who shared the conspiracy, informed their parents who discovered the two weary little people sleeping in a room at Holly Tree Inn. Several years were supposed to have elapsed between this and the next scene, " Men Not Wanted. " Norah was then at Boarding School. She and a typical group of boarding school girls had decided, in a few moments of enthusiasm after hearing a lecture on the utter uselessness of men, to put the latter entirely out of their lives, and to devote their undivided attention to charitable works. This scene was not as sol- emn as it sounds, but, indeed, very amusing, especially as the audience was quite assured, before the curtain fell, that these wonderful (?) resolutions were as easily destroyed as they were formed. ■ Then a delightful scene, " Before the Play Began 11 was enacted, with Norah and Harry again taking the leading parts. This was really the climax of the evening, for it was at this point, while rehearsing a love scene, that — well, you know the rest! The peep into their home life afterwards was quite necessary, though, to show us that " they lived happily ever after. 11 They were sitting peacefully before the fire " reminiscing 11 when suddenly, out of nowhere burst in upon them a crowd of O.L.C. girls — Norah ' s friends — and some men — Oh such rarities! After the first noisy greet- ings they came back to reality, and after presenting to Beatrice a corsage of mauve sweet peas and sweetheart roses, they sang the Senior Class song. Then everyone was invited to come to the gymnasium for the remainder of the evening. When the girls reached the " gym. " where the Seniors were receiving, there were gasps of wonder and astonishment that such a marvellous transformation could be made in our huge bare " gym 11 in just a day. It was really indescribably beautiful. I have tried — oh, so often — to tell someone just how wonderful it was, but I have never succeeded. The " woodsy 11 canopy of green, the white chairs and tables with dainty favour at each place harmonizing beautifully with the rainbow coloured blos- soms on the branches shading the tables; professional (?) waiters serving delicious salads, ice cream, cake, and coffee; gay girls in dresses as gay, dancing, — everything gave the effect of a glorious garden party. The most imposing ceremony of the evening was the presentation of the school song by the Senior Class. Our president made the presentation, after which the Seniors, grouped around the piano, sang the song. Mr. Farewell acknowledged it and at the same time assured us of the enjoyment he had received from the evening ' s program. After the five dances, we again sang our song, and the other classes responded with their songs and yells. Then, after everyone singing " Auld Lang Syne, 11 with joined hands, and " God Save the King, 11 we succeeded in sending the rest of the school to bed, while we remained to have our picture taken. Although these pictures may be our only testimony and reminder of that happy evening, and although it is just one of the frolics of our graduating year, shall we ever forget it? Never! Half tttttte ®ea It was Saturday, February the fourteenth, but not an ordinary Saturday for Seniors. At four o ' clock our president received us in Miss Ball ' s studio which had been made very cosy and homelike for the occasion. In a few minutes Miss Max- well, Miss Ball, Miss Everson and Miss Jean Maxwell joined us. When we were all comfortably seated Miss Maxwell spoke to us from the quotation, " Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt hath lost its savour wherewith shall it be salted? 11 Every Senior knew and valued the privileges attached to her position, but few realized how applicable the other phase of the quotation was. In closing Miss Maxwell left with us the last two stanzas of Drinkwater ' s fervent plea, " A Prayer. 11 The social side of the occasion did not obliterate this brief but impressive message though we all did full justice to the dainty refreshments. Miss Everson presided at the tea table and was assisted by members of the class. In honour of the day we had little heart- shaped cakes decorated with silver arrows. Those arrows, now in our stunt book, are the only tangible reminders of the Valentine Tea, but each of us will remember that afternoon long after the arrows have disappeared. tmav lintm So this was the wonderful occasion to which we had been looking forward for months and months. Those of us who are " new " were told about the Senior dinner when we first entered the college last fall. To the " old " girls, who had helped pre- pare it before, perhaps for several years, and who were now at the Senior table with the feeling greatly borne to them that this was the last time, it may have meant even more. The other classes were standing awaiting us when we entered the dining room. There was a deep hush, almost a reverent silence, soft music was playing, and we ielt, oh, so unworthy of all this honour. The dinner served to us was really marvellous, and would have graced any table and any presence. The dining-room itself was beautiful, too. Our class colours are maroon, Dutch blue, and silver, and the Juniors used them to their very best advantage in decorating our table. There were three silver baskets laden with beau- tiful red roses, blue ribbons stretching from the handles across the table, tall silver candle-sticks holding blue candles, and the individual touch of a silver almond dish filled with silver and maroon candies and tied with a blue ribbon, and a sweet little forget-me-not at each place. All over the dining-room could be seen the other class colours, especially the black, white and coral of the Juniors. The dinner passed all too quickly. Everyone ate, drank and was merry. Yet under the surface, deep down in our hearts, we were all thinking very seriously of this festivity and of its special meaning for us — the graduating class. Mr. Farewell, toast master, then proposing the toast to the King, said he be- lieved this was really the happiest occasion of the year, because it is the only one at which we are alone, together. He said he felt sure that, although there are girls here from the world over, they would all be glad to join in drinking a toast to the King. Margaret Coleman most graciously proposed the toast to our Country. She spoke first of the springtime and of budding trees and plants, then their growth and development during summer months, and of the rich autumn harvests. She reminded us that this is the springtime of Canada, and that we, the youth of to-day, must see that the harvest is bountiful. After this toast had been very heartily drunk, it was responded to by Marion Peacock, who told us a great deal of Canada ' s wonderful resources. " Our Alma Mater " is a toast which comes very close to our hearts, and one which we all love to drink. This was proposed by Muriel Ball, who praised the glorious opportunities opened up for us here by both mental and physical training, by society with other girls, by musical courses, and by social activities, and who spoke of the high ideals of our college. In responding, Betty Wright related some- thing of her experiences in several years here, and told us how very deeply she re- gretted leaving O.L.C. Then followed the most deserved toast to our Faculty, which was proposed by Grace Baird. She voiced the feelings of every one of us when she quoted Tennyson ' s passage, " We are a part of all that we have met, " and said that she hoped we would imbibe even a small share of the good-will, the helpfulness, and kindness of our Faculty. Miss Maxwell ' s response was wonderful, as is everything Miss Maxwell says to us. She quoted Theona McLeod, who said, " To see things in their beauty is to see them in their truth. " She said that the teachers and students were trying " together to seek light with its high fellowship and wide enthusiasm, ' " and to follow the ideal relationship established by Jesus with his followers. The next toast, the only one which we did not drink, was proposed to " The Graduating Class, " by Violet Maw, in her very charming style. She very truthfully acknowledged that the Seniors of this year were not angelic, but she said that we had worked hard, played fairly, been friendly, and had helped them to gain exper- ience. Then she called upon the Juniors to help her express their feelings by singing a " Farewell " to the Senior class. Juniors — -I am sure, you will never realise until you have had the same .experience yourselves how deeply our hearts were touched by that majestic farewell; our eyes " made blind themselves with tenderness. " Beatrice Oarruthers, in her response, gave the credit for what success we may have had this year to the helpful co-operation of Miss Maxwell, Miss Everson, and Mr. Farewell. Speaking for the class, she said that we would like to have the song handed down Irom year to year as the Juniors 1 farewell to the Seniors. Both the proposal and the responses to the toast to the " Other Classes " were interesting. It was proposed by Audree Gray, whose speech was, in brief, that we love the Elementaries for their pep and style, the Freshmen for their very freshness, the Sophomores for their sophistication, and the Juniors for their good looks as well as their numerous other good qualities. Kathleen Jenkins, responding for the Juniors, expressed their sincere desire to possess the ability to fill the places of the Seniors of ' 25 and to carry on. Lillian McCormick announced the determination of the Sophomores to make the graduating class of 1927-28 worthy to be followers of the Seniors of ' 25. The aim of the Freshmen is to become true representatives of the school, Lucienne said, and they are striving to be good Freshmen, and thus lay the foundation for what is to come. Our baby class, through Dorothy Maw, was the last to speak. She reminded us that every Senior must be an Elementary first, and as- sured us that they would try to live up to the standards held before them. " Student Organisations " is a most important toast, which was very capably pro- posed by Marguerite Jackson. She said that the Athletic is one of the most necessary school associations, as we all want to have sound bodies as well as sound minds; that the S.C.M. develops the spiritual and religious side of our life, bringing us closer in fellowship with one another and with students of foreign lands; that the Honour Club, with its motto, " He conquers who conquers himself, " should stand for the best in our school, but this can only be as our sense of duty and responsibility grows stronger. This toast was very competently responded to in a few words by Bunny Hodge, Olive Gibson, and Helen Bunner, Presidents of these organisations. Last on the program was the toast to the Press, proposed by Leile Ryerson, who stated the far-reaching power of the Press, and responded to by Rhoda Howe, our editor, who very justly said that what we need is more co-operation as well as sym- pathy. After these toasts had been drunk, a vote of thanks was proposed to Miss Wallace for the particular care she had taken in preparing our menu. The hearty applause which followed showed that we really meant it. This was the end, but it was not the end in our hearts. The same sentiments as were expressed by the Juniors we return to them, to the other classes, and to the Faculty, one hundred fold. Our Senior year at O.L.C. will be one we shall always remember, and especially shall we cherish the memory of this partly solemn, very happy occasion. We shall have no need of a forget-me-not as a reminder! ntor QUaaH Propljmi for NtttPtmt Stuetttg-ifftti? It was " the morning after the night before " , and " the night before " was just forty- nine years after Class Day at O.L.C in 1925. The reason I mention the night before ■ — I have mentioned it three times already — is that it was then that I conceived a brilliant plan. And the brilliant plan worked out as follows: " The night before, " I ordered an Oversea Speed Boat, which is an invention of the last ten years, to be fully equipped and ready to set out on a trip of about five hundred miles, which I knew we could make easily in an hour and a half. We started for Trafalgar Caste at six o ' clock in the foggy morning . The time was passing so slowly that ten minutes seemed like fully eleven — well, almost, so I decided to give my boat some inspection. I soon came to the kitchen, and became engaged in conversation with my principle jar-washer — as the saying is — and the subject of our conversation was Helen Bunner. Further- more, this cook was talking about herself, for she was Bunny. Oh! I forgot to mention that she couldn ' t talk. She was one of these sea-faring people — they ' re quite common, you ' ve heard of them often — who because of a certain impediment of speech, have to sing all their thoughts. Poor Bunny! I felt so sorry for her! If you have ever heard her try to sing, you ' ll know why. We had not gone far — not more than a hundred miles — when we overtook a poor little old-fashioned speed launch in distress. It was run by a very alert, masculine-like woman, whom we very kindly took on board. She immediately showed great affection to Bunny — who was of course on deck — and me, and called us both by name. We were very astonished and not cool but ice-cold, until she said, " Then you don ' t know me? " " I ' m Jean Bauslaugh. " " Why Granny! " we exclaimed — and melted. Then she told us that this was her business now — boat repairing. We all talked then, all the way to Whitby. And who do you think we talked about? Mostly about a woman whom Jean knew on a ranch out west. I had heard about her from time to time because she is famous for the way she runs her ranch, but I wanted to know just something of her every day life. She was Leile Ryerson; she never married but adopted seven boys to help her on her ranch. Thus we passed the time until we reached Port Whitby, which is a most indus- trious little city. But unfortunately, or perhaps otherwise, we arrived there so early that the only person at the landing was a little worn out woman — a farmer ' s wife with a market basket on her arm and little children crowding around her. Of course we recognized her as soon as we had spoken to her to ask how we could get to the Castle. She was Betty Wright, you remember — our vice-president. How times have changed! She asked us to come to her home which was not far away, and she told us her husband would take us in her car. While we were sitting on her front steps we heard her speak to " Buster, " and turning around, because we thought this might be her husband or another youngster — we encountered her maid! Don ' t you recognize the name — Buster! She was Aileen Purvis! We all talked at once for several minutes, and then our attention was attracted to a tall, then — really thin, woman, all wrapped up carrying a book and a blanket, and sauntering slowly up i he beach. We couldn ' t be blamed for not recognizing her, for Edith was such .hi athlete at O.L.C. The trouble was that she was too much so. She had ruined her health and this was the result! Soon Betty ' s husband arrived, and actually requested us to ride in a rattly old Rolls Royce! We could not do anything but consent, so in we climbed! The roads led us by the Asylum, and what should we do but get stalled right in front of it. We were dreadfully frightened and looking fearfully around we saw peaking through a crack an elderly woman with fri y golden hair. That was all we needed to tell us that was Margaret Coleman! It was too pitiful. Finally we got started and arrived at the Castle without further trouble. The grounds seemed so changed that we thought we had better inquire before we went in, so we stopped and spoke to two girls at the gate. Judging from their attitude towards one another, they seemed to be the greatest of good friends. Of course, we didn ' t know them, but they began to whisper to one another with glances at us, and after some time got up enough courage to ask us if we graduated in " 25. We were astonished and thought this seemed rather weird. But when we asked them why they inquired they said that their mothers had pictures of us on a funny old thing they called a " strip. " We were all eagerness, and we weren ' t long in finding out that they were the daughters of Rhoda E. Howe and Patricia Gumley, who, they said, were in partnership now painting studies of certain domestic animals. Their daughters insisted that they were famous, but I assure you, we had never heard them mentioned in that line. These girls escorted us to the College which we were surprised to find not so very much changed after all. As soon as we entered the door we heard someone singing — singing beautifully, like a bird — anything from a crow to a lark — and, tip- toeing into the reception room, we found a small group of teachers being entertained by this music. It stopped abruptly as we entered, and, as the pianist and singer turned, we saw that they were Betty Evans and Viva Armbruster. In the conversation — or rather babble of voices — which followed, we learned that Miss Evans was a piano teacher at Trafalgar now, her taste having been cultivated by a certain music teacher, who was a special friend of hers; that Viva was her guest — they were drawn together by their love for music; ; and that the members of the staff who were in the room were Miss Desmond, Latin teacher, and Miss Jones, gym. teacher! We certainly ad ' mired all the girls for their suitable choice of a vocation. We thought the first thing to do, arriving unexpectedly like that, was to go to the Principal. When we suggested that, there were mysterious noddings and whisp- crings among the teachers, and they seemed very anxious for us to meet their prin- cipal. When we reached her office we found her a short, good-natured, garrulous sort of person engaged in conversation with a tall, thin, quiet woman of about her own age. The teachers said, " Oh! what luck! " ' ' but we didn ' t knew what they were talking about until we saw the two ladies closely. You probably know from my description the lady Principal was Pauline Adams, and the other, the Principal ' s wife, Isobel Beasley! We certainly enjoyed that half hour, although we all talked at once and didn ' t say anything worth while, but our time was short and they said they had another surprise for us. We were shown all through the College, and finally, down to the " laundry where we found — the surprise. There, propelling the automatic irons with all possible vigour, were two bent old women who had something familiar in the similarity of their contour. Must I tell you who they were? Onie and Manny, who had found this energetic work the only occupation which made them happy, in helping Ithem to forget their reckless past. Then Miss Adams said we were invited to tea at the home of one of the stand-bys of the school, who was now living in Whitby, and that we were to have the extreme pleasure of listening to a lecturer on " The Evils of Gum Chewing — Nothing stronger than paraffin wax! " We were delighted as we were all very much interested in the suppression of this accursed evil! Our hostess — well, when we entered the door, we simply shouted, " Sunny! " and fell into each others arms. We were rather disappointed in her, though; she had grown into such a gossipy sort of woman, quite different from what we had ever expected. That was all she delighted in, but she did tell us things we were very anxious to know. In almost no time she was talking away something like this: " Did you hear about Helen Parry and Gibby? Well, you know what great friends they were? Well, they ' re deadly enemies now, never speak to one another and living right in the same town too! And all over a man! Well, just when they got to the stage where neither one would give in — more from stubborness than that either one wanted the fellow, who should step in but Reta Dundas and walk off with him! Now, didn ' t that serve them just right? But they ' ve never forgiven each other — oh! no! And I ' ll warrant you didn ' t know about Grace Baird! Why, she married a member of the aristocracy of England, a son or grand-son or something of a Vanderbilt; And the man who delivers her bread is ill, mostly lazy, I think, so his wife has to do it now, and that ' s Marguerite Jackson! And that isn ' t all I know — Helen Mellow and Audree Gray have a little cottage all their own, where they live with their cats and dogs and parrots! They always say they prefer that life. Audree never could find anyone who suited her. You all know that! " We were all breathless as Sunny by that time, and had just recovered our- selves somewhat when the speaker arrived — Grace Elliot, wearing a huge, brilliant hat, rather flowing robes and spectacles. That was certainly a most enlightening and uplifting address. We were all just ready to swear " never to masticate any gummy substance other than wax, " Grace had almost reached the climax of her talk when a new arrival was shown in. She had entered unknown to anyone, but when she impatiently stepped forward we recognized her despite her extremely tailored out ' fit, as our class president of ' 25, Beatrice Carruthers. We did not know until she began to speak — which she was not long in doing, how she happened to be there. She was a travelling saleswoman for the Royal Society of the Company of Shoelaces guaranteed to last five years. She even eclipsed Grace in her eloquence. She was so deeply concerned in her subject that she continued to hold forth until we had all bought at least six pairs of her wonderful wares. Don ' t blame us for our weakness! She might have been talking yet if we had not. You have heard the quotation, " Whether there be prophecies they shall cease. " Thus endeth the prophecy of the Senior Class of 1925. Uarralaureate g»utt ay Sunday morning, June the fourteenth, found every student anxiously studying the sky to see what the day had in store for us. The signs were very satisfactory. Those of the graduates who were Anglicans had the unusual privilege of attend- ing early service at their own church. It seemed a fitting way to begin the last Sunday of the school year. On that Sunday the inaugural communion of the United Church of Canada was celebrated, an event that made the day doubly momentous. In the afternoon we were requested to observe the customary quiet hour, but it was necessary to attend to the hundred and one details in preparation for the evening service. We all dressed before tea, so that we were able to linger at the tables, loathe to end our last evening as school-mates, for we knew that many guests would come in the morning to remain until the end. Promptly at six-fifteen we left for the Methodist Church. The faculty walked first and were followed by the student body, led by the Junior President dressed in white. When the faculty and students had entered their pews they remained stand- ing while the graduates, wearing their caps and gowns, proceeded slowly down the aisle to the pews beautifully decorated with flowers and white ribbon. The Junior President cut the ribbon, thus allowing the graduates to take the seats reserved for them. The service was that of the United Church, but it seemed to have an added meaning. Even the music was unusually beautiful, particularly the solo, " O Divine Redeemer, " sung by Miss Merchant. A great moment came when Dr. Trevor Davies, of Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, Toronto, stood up to deliver the baccalaureate address. Doctor Davies opened the big Bible at Philippians first chapter, twenty-first verse. His anxious, serious eyes looked down upon us and almost entreated us to understand him and -his words. They were so real to him — so true. What were we living? Such different kinds of lives, so many of them selfish and small. But how were we to live? There seemed so many ways and life was so pulling. Paul said — " Christ! " ' " To me to live is that! " We listened. " To me to live is — what? " So many of us choose new ideals, a new way of living, for every week in the year. Then, where do we find ourselves? We are as a painter who begins to paint a building red, then decides, before it is finished, to do it in blue, and likewise perhaps in green or yellow, thus never completing his job. Dr. Davies says we need a lasting ideal, one that we can always keep, one so near and yet so far. " Near, " so that we can always see it, and live according to it; " far " so that, in reaching high for our " star " we ourselves grow higher in mind and broader in character. Small ideals, easily obtained, merely require our every day strength, and we build up nothing new nor greater. But who can reach Christ? " To me to live is Christ! " However, if Dr. Davies were to tell us one definite ideal for all of us to fol- low, he must necessarily tell us one that would fit well into any one of our lives — living, as it were, each under different circumstances. He mentioned a number of great lives, familiar to all of us, a politician, a writer, a minister, a musician,, a missionary, and so on. They have each left an eternal life behind to us. Yet each one has lived by the same code. Christ is universal. " To me to live is Christ! " There are many ways to live and everyone is free to choose his or her way. Dr. Davies took us to the palace of an infamous king, a man remembered in history only as a person notorious for his selfish, pleasure mad actions. Yet he was not satisfied nor happy, although he sought his own pleasure or happiness all his life. Then, in a spacious library, we see before us a man well known the world over for his great brain ability. His life was a life of " books. " Yet he left no love in the hearts of men for him; he made no one happy, and he himself died unsat ' isfied, knowing that somewhere he had lost out. And lastly, Dr. Davies shows us Christ, a Christ who died on the cross for us, a Christ of total unselfishness, a Christ who lives vividly yet in the hearts of men. To me to live is what? Oh! what is there for us to live but Christ? What else can compare to His way of living? And then Dr. Davies spoke to the Graduation Class. They stood to receive his message, and who can say that each heart did not thrill to every word he spoke. To keep in mind and life all that he had told them in his talk— to live — oh! to live — that they might always say, " To me to live is Christ! 1 ' And Dr. Davies had finished. Each girl unconsciously showed in her expres- sion that his service had reached deep into her heart and left a mark that would not wear off. At the close of the service the congregation resumed their seats until the grad ' uates had left the church. Then the faculty and student body hurried back to the college for the closing ceremony. The Seniors entered the college door to the strains of, " Saviour, Again to Thy Dear Name We Raise, " rendered softly by their fellow students. With bowed heads the graduates passed between the rows of girls and up the stairs, fully realizing all that the ceremony signified. Shortly afterwards an informal reception was held to allow the graduates and their guests to meet Dr. Davies. The day did not end there for the Seniors; each girl lived the day over again in her own room before she went to sleep. Alumnae lag The day began for the Seniors with an invitation extended to them to lunch with the members of the Alumnae Association. Feeling very highly honored by this privilege, they tried to show a little of their appreciation by assembling promptly to take the places reserved for them. The dining-room was beautifully decorated with flowers, and the attractive menu cards added greatly to the appearance of the tables. Needless to say, the room was particularly adorned by the presence of the many students who had graced the halls of our college in years gone by, as well as by those who were spending their last year here. After the toast to the King, proposed by Miss Powell, the very capable " maitresse d ' affaires, " had been heartily drunk, Miss Maxwell was called upon to extend a welcome to those present. In her customary, gracious manner, she first expressed her regret for those who were absent and had sent greetings and good wishes. She then extended a welcome, not only to the fellowship of the luncheon, but the fellowship of a common endeavor, the promotion of the great ends of education, what L. P. Jacks calls " the fellowship of light. " Her next welcome was to the guests of the Alumnae — the graduating class. She congratulated them on being young in the be- ginning of this age, which on the surface is restless and pleasure seeking, but, deeper, has the beginning of many new and great things of which they will see the fulfilment. Miss Maxwell then congratulated too, those who are older, and will not see the fulness of achievements of the age, but who have had the great and stirring experience of seeing the close of one great era and the birth of another. In conclusion she reminded all present of the fellowship of past achievement in the fifty years of our College his- tory and of future endeavors in its deepening life. Miss Hunter, in calling upon the assembly to drink to " Our Country " , quoted some very patriotic and uplifting stanzas inspired by our native land. Mr. Farewell, in his response, laid very great stress upon the necessity of newspaper reading in order to know the actions not only of our country, but of the whole world. The toast to " Our Alma Mater " was very charmingly proposed by Mrs. Carruthers, who spoke of the pranks played, the good times enjoyed, and the lessons learned, during her years here, and told the graduates that they would realize more fully than ever their privileges here in after years. Mrs. Black graciously responded to this toast. Miss Williams, inviting the Alumnae to join in drinking to " The Graduating Class, " spoke very happily of the hope and confidence which all shared together. Miss Carruthers, the president of the class, responded, thanking the Alumnae for the pleasure of the occasion and expressing the intention of the class of maintaining their interest by uniting with the Association. " Our Alumnae Association " was proposed by Mrs. Atkinson, in a charming manner. She spoke chiefly of the advisability of belonging to some chapter of the Alumnae. In her response, Mrs. Westley told something of the work done by one of the Toronto Associations, of which she is the President. The members of the Alumnae and their guests were then invited to withdraw to the drawing room, where a short but very entertaining program was presented by various members of the Alumnae Association. After several lovely musical num- bers, Miss Maxwell was presented with a Life Membership Certificate of the Alumnae Association in memory of Miss Isabella Cormack. Miss Maxwell was quite taken by surprise, but every one present felt that there was none more worthy of this honor. Then the school was made the glad recipient of new books for the ever-increasing library, by the members of the Ryerson Chapter of Toronto, and of a beautiful clock to be placed on the mantelpiece in the teachers ' sitting-room, by four or five individual members of the Alumnae. The last number on this program, and a very gratifying one to all, was the unveiling, by Mrs. Ross, of the Castle Chapter, of a beautiful portrait of Miss Adams, who was for some years a very distinguished and much loved and revered Lady Prin- cipal of this College. Mrs. Ross, after unveiling the portrait, read aloud a very lovely letter from Miss Adams ' niece, Miss Helena Coleman, who was to have done the honors on this occasion, but, unfortunately, was unable to be present. This brought to a close the very fine and enjoyable program for the afternoon. The entertainment of the evening of Alumnae Day was the annual Commence- ment play. This year the Dramatic Club, excellently directed by Miss Ball, pre- sented very successfully " Sweet Lavender, " by Arthur Pinero. This presentation was really a very fine and clever piece of work, highly creditable to the department of Expression. Miss Ball has received many, many compliments on the success of this play, and we should like to be allowed again to offer ours. (HiusB Sag The programme for this day, which proved to be so happy for everyone, com- menced in the afternoon with the formation of the daisy chain, really made of daisies for the first time in several years. The graduates, looking very sweet and dignified, in their caps and gowns, walked slowly through the loggia and into the concert hall, where the school and guests were assembled. The Junior Class President, Violet Maw, and Vice-President, Georgia Allen, dressed in their class colors, black, white and coral, made a very charming picture against a background of pink and white peonies. As Violet read the biographies, Georgia cut the daisy chain, allowing each graduate in turn to mount the steps to the platform. The biographies displayed great originality and wit, and showed their truth by the applause and laughter which they caused in the audience. Following this, the Senior Class prophecy was read. Then Beatrice Carruthers, ihe Senior president, presented the parting gifts of the class — to the school, a fire screen and handsome tongs, shovel and brush, in dull bronze, for the fireplace in the common room, having a plate affixed on the stand which inscribed the appropriate and useful gift; to Miss Everson, advisory teacher, a beautiful leather writing case; and to Miss Maxwell, a bouquet of deep red roses. These gifts were presented and received with words which well expressed the appreciation of everyone concerned. Grace Elliott voiced, in beautifully chosen phrases, the sentiments of every member of the graduating class in the splendid valedictory address. The programme was brought to a close by each class singing its song, and by everyone joining patriotically in singing our very new, but dearly loved, school song, and " God Save the King. " But that was not the end of the enjoyment planned by our jolly Juniors for the Graduating Class. About 6.30 the Seniors were ushered in through a charmingly arranged little lobby, to Miss Ball ' s studio, which had been miraculously transformed into a banquet hall. Everything was there which goes to make up a dignified ban- quet — maids in uniform, an elaborate menu, and evening dresses. However, gaiety rather than dignity marked the occasion, and among the impromptu songs which were heard that evening, the serenade to the cooks was the most momentous. At the close of this fete, the girls parted; but not for long, only to meet again in the twilight around the bonfire. The Seniors sang their song, and then charged down, forming a circle around the fire. They remained there while each one, chanting an original verse, tossed on the fire the bane of her studies here. Then the Juniors sang their sweet and touching farewell song, which was becoming more laden with feeling as the day of parting drew near. Thinking, perhaps, that those who were leaving would need cheering after that, they sang their snappy Junior song. The rest of the evening was spent giving the yells of favorite colleges, and singing songs — the old, old ones, and the new, new ones — until the school ' s guardian angel, Miss Maxwell, came to send the carollers to bed. I think everyone would say that there could have been no occasion upon which they would have sung more feelingly and earnestly. " When you come to the end of a perfect day. " (Eflmmettttmrttt Sag It was here at last, that great day which all the girls, and especially the Seniors, had held before them. It had seemed so remote, so far in the future, at the beginning of the year, but it had arrived all too soon for those who were graduating. The morning program surpassed the greatest expectations of everyone present. Every girl excelled herself. It seemed as though their greatest desire was to leave the best impression possible with those who were hearing them for perhaps the last time. Their wish — if this it was — was certainly gratified. The last part of the program was under the direction of Mr. G. D. Atkinson, assisted by Miss Merchant. Must any more be said as to its success? The choral club, together with Miss Snyder ' s and Miss Burns ' ' dancing classes, presented this year " May the Maiden, " a choral dance cycle from " Faust. " So appropriate were the fairy-like costumes, and so strikingly did they and the dancing harmonize with the rippling music and the singing, that the whole effect was extraordinarily pleasing. After the valedictory address was given by Miss Grace Elliott on behalf of the Senior Class, the program was closed by singing " God Save the King, " accompanied by two pianos and the pipe organ. Immediately following this program, the audience and performers withdrew to the lawn where chairs had been placed, and where large tents had been erected in which to serve the lunch. The girls in white, hurrying around to serve the refresh- ments to their families and many friends, made a very pretty picture in the bright sunshine, on the fresh green grass. At two o ' clock the school and the graduates ' numerous friends assembled in the concert hall for the last function of the year. This whole crowd of people remained standing, as, first, the faculty in caps and gowns, and then the graduates looking charm- ing and dignified in simple white dresses, carrying uniform bouquets of deep red roses tied with blue and silver ribbons, walked slowly through the hall and up to the platform. Everyone remained standing while Rev. A. R. Sanderson led in prayer. Then, when everyone was seated, Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Farewell granted the diplomas. Each girl had a feeling of great pride in her heart, as she stepped forward to receive from Mr. Hamilton the parchment roll for which she had been striving all year. Before proceeding to the awarding of medals, Mr. Farewell gave a very brief talk, particularly to the graduating class. He congratulated them on their success, rty-Eight gave them his best wishes for their continued success in the future, and assured them they would always receive a very hearty welcome to O.L.C. Following this, the medals, scholarships and prizes were awarded. This was done as often as possible by the donor, otherwise Mr. Hamilton performed the very gratify- ing, delightful task. Mr. Farewell then introduced the speaker for the afternoon, Dr. Geo. J. True- man, formerly Principal of Stanstead College, and now President of Mount Allison University. He gave a very interesting address on education. He said that boys and girls had much the same capacity for learning, that boys excelled in some subjects, while girls excelled in others. His chief thought was that there are two kinds of edu- cation — vocational and cultural, that they are both necessary for a well-balanced mind, and that we must keep them well proportioned, not neglecting one for the other. This might have been the end of the program except that the girls had asked to be allowed to sing the Senior song, the farewell song, and our school song, before the occasion was brought to a close with the National Anthem. The Senior Class Song is well deserving of the dignity and loyalty which one would naturally attach to it, so that it was with great pride and feeling that the graduates sang it together for the last time. The Juniors sang their farewell song with a depth of feeling which cannot be quite expressed, and the Seniors were able to realise in part the love which their younger sisters felt toward them. It was after this that one hundred and twenty-five girls joined with loyal hearts in singing our dearly loved school song. One could not realize, unless he were present, just how much all this meant to these daughters of Trafalgar.

Balefitrtiinj The time has come when the Senior Class of 1925 must say goodbye to those who have made the year a happy one. How difficult this is for us, only those can know who have stood where we stand today. Most of us have spent two years or more in O.L.C., and as we look back we see that they have all been happy ones; but that this has been the fullest and most splendid of all. We have learned new things, we have thought new thoughts, we have come to love the school and all its associations. Many times in the years to come we shall see in memory the dark blue outline of the old building with its lights in the winter dusk, or the green lawns and long shadows of the summer; memories of jolly teas and masquerades will come back, work and play that have become a very part of us; and now the time is over. Here we have made new and dear friends. We owe more than we realize to the kindly understanding and ready helpfulness of the Principal and the Lady Prin- cipal of the College, and the faculty. We may forget the pranks we have played, the foolish things we have done, but never in the years to come shall we be able to forget the friendships we have made this year. When difficulties have arisen, discouragements and perplexities, we have turned to our friends and have often found wise counsel, and have always found sympathy. I think everyone who comes to the days of graduation realises that the Senior year, more than any other, brings a fuller sense both of privilege and responsibility. We look back with regret that these privileges and responsibilities are over. We think with some envy of those who will take them up next year, for in some sense the Senior year makes them seem peculiarly ours, and we lay them down reluctantly. And so we think of the Juniors who have been so good to us this year. They will carry on in our place next year, and we do not doubt that they will hold high the honor of the Senior Class and the honor of the school. We remember, too, with affectionate appreciation, the loyal friendliness of the younger classes, who from year to year will fill a large place in the life of the school until they too stand at the gateway like ourselves to say goodbye. As a class, also, we take hands for the last time; we hope for happy reunions in the years to come, but the equal comradeship of work and play that welds a class together is ended with the rest. This is a day for which we have often been impatient; it seemed at times very remote, but now that it has come we would gladly linger. But this we may not do, the way leads onward. So, as we go forth from Trafalgar Castle, we go with hearts full of love and loyalty for her, and the hope that we may always be worthy of her name. ifitmor fflkaa VIOLET MAW " A depth of truth and zeal A dart of fun and a host of dreams " Sprouted— Hamilton 1907. Pruned — Public and High School in Hamilton. Grew — Into a good-heart, fun loving pal and Pres. of Junior Class. Hopes to blossom in A.T.C.M., and perhaps her M.E.L. KATHLEEN JENKINS " Laugh when we must Be candid when we can. " " K. J. " brought joy to the Jenkins home in 1906, and has kept it in the same condition ever since. She grew up at Brown School, then Davenport High School for one year before she came to O. L.C. in 1922. Her first year she was a Soph., now she is one of our faithful Juniors, and we all hope that she will climb to the highest rung. GEORGIA ALLAN " Her hair is not more sunny than her smile. " Our ambitious city of Hamilton was indeed lucky when " Gige " picked it out as her birthplace in 1907. There she delved into the mysteries of Algebra and Latin at High School. After Christ- mas, 1924, she decided to complete her Sophomore year at O.L.C., and returned in September to take Junior Household Science. IDA SHERLOCK " Where there is talk, there is the world a garden unto me. " London launched in the year 1905, London rigged. Sailed through Public and part of High School, chart- ered for O.L.C. in 1923. Withstood the gales of the Junior and Intermediate Vocal Examination and, ' fair weather permitting, will continue her vocal at home next year. JEAN BULLIS. " She could sell the devil a fur coat. " Iroquois, Ontario, produced a scholar when Jean was borne there in 1908. There is not adequate space here to mention the- numerous places in which she received the preliminaries of learning, but it is enough to say that she graduated from Harbord Collegiate with thirteen firsts in her Honor Ma- triculation. Before entering the realms of higher knowledge she has spent a year with us taking Expression and German. LOUISE COLBECK. " Than knowledge tetter far is love. " The windy city of Chicago claims Louise as its own, for she was born there in 1906. She soon came to Brantford, and before she knew it had her Jun- ior Matriculation. Then, thinking that a change was as good as a rest, the Household Science course proved inviting, and she began it here in 1924, and lo! and behold! she completed the two year course in one. ADELIE McLENNAN " Upon what meat doth this our Spike feed. " That she is grown so tall? " Spike is not just sure where she was born but she is making a rough guess at Selkirk, Man. However she moved to Toronto, and went to Public Scoool there. She came to O.L.C. in 1921, and the most noted accomplishment that year was that she bobbed her hair. Spike is toiling away at her Matric, and we know that she will get it. DOROTHY LOUNSBURY " Noiv blessing rest upon the man who first invented sleep. " " Dot " was born in the shadow of the famous moun- tain in 1908. After the usual ailments of childhood and after taking her Public and High School work up to Second Form, she breezed into O.L.C. in 1924 to face her Matriculation all in one gulp. GRATIA HODGE " She plays the game and hopes to win it And yet gets all the fun there ' s in it. " " Bunnie " is a " Newfoundlander " and proud of it. There she first warbled her greetings in 1907. In moving to Toronto she attended Havergal, also Oakwood C. I. before coming to O.L.C. in 1923. What would we have done without her " jazz " ? We are almost certain that our games were won this year owing to the splendid work " Bunnie " as Athletic President. NINA EDWARDS " You have called me too early. I must slumber again. " Positively her first appearance in Wingham in 1908. She went through the " mud pie " and Kinder- garten stage in the same place, but journeyed to Lake Linden, Mich., to start her education in a seri- ous manner. June, 1922, saw her with her Entrance. The last three years have been taken up with High School work and play. LUCILLE BROWNELL " For she had pep and pep to burn. " Lucille ' s cradle first was rocked in 1908 at Marth- ville, N.Y. We would have to edit a separate edition in order to publish the names of all the schools she attended, but Akron, Ohio, was her last seat of learning before O.L.C. in 1923. Lucille has been both a sophomore and a junior, and we believe she aspires to be a senior. LUCIE ASHBOURNE. " To sum up all, be merry I advise, And as we ' re merry may we still be wise. " A 1908 Bluenose from Newfoundland but Toronto claims her inasmuch as it has carried her through Public School and part of her High School career. She came to O.L.C. in 1923, and is this year trying her partial matriculation. ELIZABETH GUNNISON " Methinks that there abides in thee Some concord with humanity. " Gay event in Merchantville, N.J., 1908. Submitted to the germ of education in Milford, N.H. Process " Highway of Knowledge " but she came to O.L.C. in 1924 where she has been taking Third Form work with hopes of partial Matric. PHYLLIS BAKER " Where ' er she is she ' ll ne ' er appear a saint. " Phyllis first drew breath in Toronto in 1908, and kept the habit. On receiving her Entrance went to Malvern Collegiate, where she struggled through for two and a half years and then to O.L.C. at Christmas to take Third Form work. DOROTHY COTTON " Did nothing in particular But did it very well. " " Dot " writes Toronto, 1908, after " Place and Date of Birth, " and the same place is where she received her education before coming to us in the third term of 1924 to continue her High School work. Her am- bitions, if any, are to get Junior Matric. ISOBEL ADAMS " The two things that I like the best Are lots to eat and lots of rest. " Born in Brantford on October 22nd, 1905, attend- ed Public and High School there and came to O.L.C. in September, 1924, to learn the culinary art, and also extensive work in hair dressing. MARGUERITE COOKE " Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt; And every grin so merry draws one out. " Cookie was born in Dunnville in 1902. She acquired her education in various places but just before coming to us in 1924 she went to Picton High School. She has received no small amount of praise regarding her typing and we understood that she has lofty ambitions along that line. MRS. MABEL CREASER " laughter be infectious May it never be quarantined. " Mrs. Creaser came to us from the land of Evan- geline last September. Her year has been busily spent with Piano, Pipe Organ, Vocal and The ory, but she always had the time to be her cheery self. We wish her every success when she returns to her home in Halifax. ANN CALLAHAN " Maidens should be mild and meek Quick, to hear, and slow to speak. " Huntsville was Ann ' s birthplace in 1907. She smiled her way through Public and High School there and continued to smile in O.L.C. during 1924- L925. Ann has been struggling with Physiology and all the other horrors that comprise the Household Science Course and just for a little diversion she has been studying piano and pipe organ. AUDREY CAMERON " Fine sense and exalted sense are not half lis useful as common sense. " Audrey let out her first vocal note in Beachburg in j 906. It soon developed into a tune, and since com- ing to O.L.C. in 1923, she has sung her way into all our hearts, besides doing a good deal of work in piano and theory. FLORENCE LIDDICOATT " She has two eyes so soft and brown Take care. " The stork abandoned " Lid " in London in 1906, and there she was destined to remain and go through the long, tedious hours of Public School, then to L.C. I. till she completed her Second Form. Desiring a change of scenery O.L.C. attracted her and Third Form claimed her as one of its members. NELLIE MARTIN " Good stuff is often put up in small packages. " Born in Hamilton, 1904. Nell dallied pleasantly through Public and part of High School, and, follow- ing in her sister ' s footsteps, she arrived at O.L.C. with the opening of school in 1924. She chose the Commercial Course and some day will be some lucky man ' s stenographer. HILDA HEXIMER " If I have anything to say I say it. " Delivered " prepaid " to Bridgeburg in 1905 but was shipped to Niagara Falls for part of her education. The word stenographer had attractions foi her, so she came to O.L.C. in 1924 to take the Commercial Course, and so has spent the year pounding the typewriter ' s keys. VIRGINIA FRID " I ' m on the go. I always do. I never think a thing. I run a bit, I dance a bit, and study in the Spring. " Virginia has been enthusiastically interested in life since 1907. Hamilton soon lured her away from Winnipeg, and then O.L.C. beckoned her in 1920. While here she has successfully passed her Entrance and is now in a fair way to completing her Matricu- ulation next year. MARY RODGER " And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew That one small head could cover all she knew. " Just to be different from sister Agnes Mary chose Toronto to call her place of birth in 1908. For some unknown reason was attracted to Kingston. Back to Toronto to enrol at Branksome Hall, then North Toronto Collegiate. Came to O.L.C. in 1924, to be a successful member of the Third Form, also to pipe the " Pipes of Pan " on May Day. CATHERINE TYRELL " Her voice was ever gentle, soft and low. " " K " was born in Victoria in 1904. Being a Methodist minister ' s daughter the places which she has called " home " have been very numerous. Before coming to O.L.C. in 1923 she attended Napanee Coll. Last year she continued her work in Junior Matric, but having ambitions towards the business world she returned this year and enrolled as a Commercial. ANNA SPEERS " Good nature is always contagious. " Began life at Brampton in 1908, but while still in short dresses coaxed her people to take up their abode in Winnipeg, where many people have envied her her rosy cheeks. Before coming to O.L.C. last September she attended High School in Winnipeg. Anna has been preparing for her Honour Matric, and we hope that she will come back to graduate next year. ISOBEL ROBERTS " Here ' s to the brown-eyed lass Catch her smile as she doth pass. " Isobel hails from the garden city of Niagara Falls. Attending Public and High School there we can im- agine her as one of their most " diligent pupils. " Came to O.L.C. in ' 24 to take her Matriculation. STELLA MARSHALL " Eternity, is before us. Why harry! " Stella first saw the bright ( ? ) lights of Dobbin- ton in 1905. Obtained her preliminary education in Oakville, then to Stirling for her High School work. The winter of 1924 saw her at O.L.C. with her major course — Vocal, and minor course Commercial. KATHLEEN McKAY " A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men. " " Debut " in Hamilton in 1908. Public School there gave her a good start, High School continued the process. Then she came to O.L.C. When " K " re- turned in ' 24 she calmly announced that she was going to take 3rd and 4th Form in one swallow, and we find her in the act of accomplishing it. JEAN YOUNG " Dere ' s not many things da! girl don ' t do. " Jean wielded her first tennis racket while in the cradle, and has been at it ever since. We would need to publish a special edition to tell the numerous schools she attended so it will suffice to say chat after spending the winter abroad she came to O.L. C. for the Spring term to complete her Junior Ma- triculation. miriam Mcdonald " I have seen the East with all Us charms, But give me the West ivith its open arms. " Miriam was born in Petrolea in 1904 but as she betook herself to the prairies in a short time we jook on her as a true Westerner.. She matriculated in Lethbridge and her stories of life on a ranch have proved very thrilling. Expression and Honour Mat- riculation work have kept her busy since last Sept- ember. CATHERINE McCALLUM " Work fascinates me, I van sit and look at it for hours. " " K " was thrust upon an unsuspecting world in 1908 at London. Dame Fortune acknowledged her with the faculty of always being good-natured. Signs of this were first noticed at St. Angela ' s College and the fact has been quite apparent in O.L.C. for the past year. GWEN SOUTER " Oh why should life all labor be. ' . " Gwen first became known in Dunnville in 1906. There she attended Public School but the wilds of Muskoka lured her to them. In 1922 she entered O. L. C. and while here most of her time has been tie- voted to piano and vocal. MADELINE SMITH " She ' s deep, sir, deep, and very shy. " Madeline Smith was added to the throbbing met- ropolis of Peterboro in 1906, but afterwards migrated to Dunnville. Came to O.LlC. after Christmas this year, and since then her time has been occupied with Piano, Vocal, Art and Dramatics. BESSIE SCHLENKER " For every wherefore she has a why. " Bessie was presented to her family in 1906 at Chatham. She started at once enjoying herself in her own quiet way. Her education up to Fourth Form was received at Ursuline College. She slip- ped into her place in O.L.C. last September, and we wish her the best of luck in her Matriculation and satisfactory answers to her questions. MARJORIE ROWEN " And the little imp of laughter Laughed in the soul of man. " Marge made her debut to this cruel world in 1906 at Guelph. All through Public School she bore the cares of life gaily, and on entering High School they still had their roseate hue. Since coming to O.L.C. to take Household Science she has been tried and found guilty of possessing an irrepressible giggle. MARION HAYMAN " She came in like a lamb but we think she has changed. " Marnie began the great " Race of Life " at London in 1907, but partly redeemed herself by moving to Toronto for a year where she attended Public School, but back again to her first love to attend L.C.I., and entered O.L.C. last September to take her Matricu- lation. IRENE EDMONDS " We may live without men, we may live without books, Bu t civilized men cannot live without cooks. " Irene quietly found her way into Innisville, Man., in 1906. Having the lust of travel she adventured as far as Ingersoll Collegiate, then to O.L.C. to begin her career as a Sophomore, but the idea of learning to cook proved too tempting and in ' 24- ' 25 she en- rolled in the Jr. Household Science Course. MABEL ELLIOT " Not too quiet, not too gay, But a real good girl in her own quiet way. " Mabel was born in holiday time in 1906; that ' s why she is always so happy. What was Stanstead College ' s loss in 1924 was surely O.L.C ' s. gain. As well as doing splendid work in her Household Science Course Mabel has accomplished a great deal in Piano. KATHRYN BURGESS " I find nonsense very refreshing. " " K " boasts Bala as her home town. Born there in 1909, she received her Public School education at the same address, and since entering O.L.C. last September has been a Third Former with ambi- tions for a matriculation. HELEN MUSGROVE " Or light or dark or short or tall She sets a spring to snare them all. " Niagara Falls is responsible in 1907. She spent most of her days playing in sight of the majestic Falls, and acquiring the odd bit of knowledge in Ni- agara Public and High Schools, then to O.L.C. in 1924, with her hosts of ambitions. She is finishing her Matric, her objective for the year, as well as taking Dramatics to fill in her spare time. MARJORIE GRAHAM " The world ' s alright, serene And joy that I am part of it. " 1 sit Born in Haileybury 1908, but came to the conclu- sion that in that region the winters were too long, ; o Toronto was her next stopping off place. There she attended both Public and High School but came to O.L.C. last September to complete her Matriculation. AGNES SWAIN " Her rare sweet smile and tranquil faee Lends all she says or does a grace. " Agnes smiled on this world in the last month of (.he first year of this century and has continued along her way always bright and cheery. Agnes went to school in Blackstock before coming to O.L.C. at the beginning of last year. She was away during the winter months, but we were all glad to have her hack for the closing term. While here she has taken work in Household Science and Dramatics. ALMA CORNWALL " Oh the gladness of her gladness when she ' s glad. " It was Dominion Day, 1904, and in the little town of Thamesville, whistles were loudly shrieking, but more than one event was being celebrated because there was a new baby girl at Cornwall ' s. We follow Ammie through her Public and High School Course, also a year in her Dad ' s office and then in 1924 she lands at O.L.C. to study Piano, Vocal, Theory, and continue her typing. NELL COOPER " A daughter of the gods, divinely tall and most divinely fair. " November, 1905, was a red letter month in Ham- ilton when " little Nell " first came into being, but she grew ' n grew, until now there is, really a lot of her to love. " Coop " attended various schools in her home city until she finished the greater part of her Junior Matriculation, and for this year she has been vaking Piano and Matriculation at O.L.C. ELIZABETH ENLOW Pretty to walk with. Witty to talk with. Pleasant to think on. " Migration — Canton, Ohio, 1906, Oshawa, Hamilton, O.L.C. in 1924. Disposition — Impulsive, vivacious, or- iginal. Excess energy dissipated in art needlework and vocal. Vocation — Interior, as well as exterior Decorator. Hobby — Household Science.. PEGGY FAIRMAN " Who speetks the fastest speaks the best. " Peggy made her first flash in Montreal in 1908. Next we see her at Miss Gascoigne ' s school, then after making a visit to O.L.C. in 1924 she decided that that was where she wanted to spend her next year so along she came last September and to make a iong story short we will call her an Elective. MARIAN NORTON " All wool and a yard wide. " When Marian says she ' s from Missouri it may have more meanings than one, for that ' s where she was born in 1900. Later she moved to Calgary, and while there was educated. Then to O. L. C. as a " day girl " to study vocal. Presto! Chango! a school marra in the West. T he next year finds her with us again to acquire the coveted A.T. and also as May Queen, the girls having found her worthy of all the qualities assigned to an " ideal woman. " MARY BRENNAN " She has tact and song and sense Mirth and sport and eloquence. " Another one of our American cousins, born in De- troit in 1908. Mary came to us in 1922 to take High School work, but left us that year only to return the latter part of 1925, with her Junior Matricula- tion tucked up her sleeve. In order to fill in time she is taking typing and English V. HELEN WILLIAMS " All studies here I solemnly defy. " Another sample from the growing city to the east of us, namely Oshawa. Here Helen was born in 1908. B. B. C. saw her safely through her Entrance to High School, and one year of Latin, and French, then she decided to come to O.L.C. in ' 24 and in spite of her numerous sojourns at home she labours with the Sophomores. FLORENCE SEMPLE " I ' m a lone wolf, and it ' s my night to howl. " Florence claims Toronto as her birthplace and the happy event took place in 1906. From her earliest childhood we can imagine her proudly displaying to the family her latest masterpiece. Coming to O.L.C. in 1924 she followed her chosen profession — Art. JEAN PATTERSON " Ah me! Love cannot be cured by pills. " To Jean there is no place quite like Stratford where she was born in 1906, but she managed to tear herself away long enough to spend the greater part of a year at O.L.C, where she was enrolled as an Elective, and has been dabbling at Commercial, Art and Music. EVELYN TRICK " Unperturbed by stress or hurry. Inclined to work (?) but not to worry. " Oshawa saw Trickie ' s earliest activities in 1907 and has been watching her ever since. She kept the teachers wide awake during her Public School career there, and at High School they were none the less on the alert. Last September she tore herself away from home, correct distance four miles, to come to O. L.C. to take Jr. Expression as well as partial Matric. VIOLA CURRY " Heads we dance, tails we eat, If it stands on edge we study. " Vic ' s curly head first made its appearance in Hali- burton in 1906. She learned the three R ' s at Public School there and before coming to O.L.C. in 1923 attended Napanee High School. While here she has been a member of both Sophomore and Junior classes. HAMA KABAYASHI Kama brought with her from the land of cherry blossoms and the Land of the Rising Sun, a good portion of its sunshine, smiles, and sweetness. She was born in Tokio, Japan, in 1899 but in 1925 sailed across the Pacific for adventures in a new world and journeyed eastward in the Spring to O.L.C. She has been learning to cook our strange foods, speak our difficult language, and very quickly ac- complish wonders in piano. RHODA FRID " Let others hail the rising sun. First warbled her greetings to the world in Chi- cago in 1907. Migrated to Hamilton where she went to Loretto Academy prior to entering O.L.C. in 1920. Here she completed her Public School work, and First Form. Decided she would stay home for a year but returned in 1924 to study Commercial. JESSIE BELL. " She wears well. " Jessie was one of last year ' s seniors, and our May Queen, so we have been very glad to have her with us again this year to continue her studies in vocal, piano and theory. Her helpful smile and ever willing spirit has made the road smoother for a great many of us. MARJORIE KISBEY " Though music hath charms The musician hath more. " Kisbey clutched her first rattle in London, Eng- land, 1905, but she soon crossed the pond; and got her land legs at Prince Albert, Sask. We find her at O.L.C. as an Elementary and in 1922 Presto! A.T.C.M. Kis. took a trip " over ' ome " last year, but returned last September to seek new laurels in her music. r S™ Ill ' AGNES RODGER " For she is just the quiet kind Whose natures never vary. " A very quiet and well mannered stork left Agnes in Kingston in 1910. She grew and didn ' t make much fuss about it. Attended Public School there, but moved to Toronto and stayed at Branksome Hal! for a while, then North Toronto Coll. Came to O.L. C. last September and has been learning to feed the " inner man " . Honorary President . . Miss Snyder President Violet Maw Vice-President Georgia Allan Secretary Ida Sherlock Treasurer Kathleen Jenkins Class Colours — Black, White and Coral. lumor § tuttt Seniors must always have futures, and if the Juniors do not take a friendly in ' terest, who is to start them upon the right road? Accordingly, on the night of Jan- uary 23rd, the school was bidden to the gym. at 7.30 — only to find that instead of a gym. was a verdant forest, instead of the " Present, " a mysterious " Future. " The " Stunt " was opened by a prologue, in which some gypsy crystal gamers were induced to prophecy. The futures of our Seniors were to be revealed! Our Senior music students seemed to have wasted their talents horribly and instead of becoming grand opera stars, had deteriorated into mere jazz hounds. The S. C. M. President was now a missionary with a wonderful class of converted Egyptians, who could sing — Oh! how they could sing — songs in such astonishingly close harmony. Many great dancers and actresses had been found among the members of the graduating class as well as the odd celebrated French modiste. The climax of the evening was reached when Beatrice Carruthers, the Senior President, was depicted as the bride of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales. Our ever willing " Bunny " , accompanied by her orchestra, started up the dance tunes and the floor was soon filled with happy couples. The fifth dance was the sup- per dance, dainty refreshments were served, and dancing was resumed. At the close of the evening the school heard for the first time the Junior song of ' 25. We hope they like it. All the class yells and songs were given and, over at last, was the Junior Stunt of the Year ' 25. JUNIOR SONG OF ' 25. J-U-N-I-O-R-S. We ' re full of pep and vim and zest, And though we ' re not conceited; We ' re just sure that we ' re the best. The Juniors that have gone before, They surely were alive, But there ' s nothing can compare With the Juniors of ' 25. Chorus: Oh, by golly! Oh, by gum! We ' re the class that has the fun. We ' re the girls that put the L in O.L.C., Giddy and gay, but still we thrive, And no one can say we aren ' t alive. The raciest, jazziest, classiest class, The Juniors of ' 25. LILLIAN McCORMICK ' ' The posies are fast But Biscuits is faster. " The first event to be chronicled occurred in Lon- don, 1909. Started to quench her thirst ( ? ) for knowledge in London Public School, later on at L.C. I., and finally at O.L.C. in September, ' 24, where she joined the Sophs. JEAN JOHNSON " Laughing lips and twinkling eyes Conceal a mind that ' s wondrous wise. " A citizen of Toronto since 1909. Worked and played through Brown Public School, then First Form at Oakwood Coll. This year she came to O.L.C. and we hope she will stay a long time and get the Matriculation she is working towards. DOROTHY BEATTIE " She is very quiet . . .when asleep. " Dot first rent the stillness at Toronto in 1910. Havergal launched her on the " road to learning " and O.L.C. helped her on the way and although she keeps everyone guessing what she ' ll do next, she has won her way into all our hearts and is working hard at both Second Form and Intermediate Piano. JEAN ALLEN. " A happy heart makes a blooming visage " Jean was born in Detroit in 1910, but Canada beckoned to her and she crossed the border to take her Public School work in Chatham. She wended her way to O.L.C. in 1923, entering as a Freshie and we hear her goal is Honor Matriculation. AUDREY HARRISON " You wouldn ' t know by her temper that she has red hair. " Toronto first viewed this flaming damsel in 1908. Williamson Rd. Public School started her on the Highway of Knowledge but she came to O.L.C. in 1923 to take High School work and is now doing second form work. GWENDOLYN BOND. " Our youth we can have out to-day. We can always find time to grow old. " Gwen ' s name was inscribed in the family Bible in 1911, at Winnipeg. Like all other good little girls she was overly anxious to go to school, and thus avoid the " afternoon nap. " After a few years at Rupert Heights Public School she sought adven- ture and entered O.L.C. as a Soph. AUDREY BRADLEY " Actions speak louder than words. " Toronto welcomed her in 1911, and is still proud to call her one of its citizens. Public School there started her on the straight .and narrow path of knowledge. Humberside Collegiate helped her on a bit. With September, 1924, she came to O.L.C., and she has still kept on the roal along with the Sopho- mores. ISABEL GRAHAM " A quiet tongue shows a wise head. " Isabel has the honour of having been borsi in our capitol, namely Ottawa, where she meandered through Public School and First Form but she found her way to O.L.C. after Easter this year and has taken her place in Second Form. nancy McGregor " I want to be mad, frightfully mad And dreadfully modern! " Hamilton born, Hamilton bred. Nancy made life interesting for her teachers in Loretto Convent and Kingsthorpe. Came to O.L.C. in 1924 to join the ranks of the sophisticated Sophs and make life inter- esting for the faculty here as well. Vice ' President Secretary-Treasurer Lillian McCormick Dorothy Beattie As is customary with Sophomores, even though the time for their stunt was fast approaching, they held their own counsel. Nobody was troubled with the usual de- mands for costumes, etc. Accordingly, until the eleventh hour, no one was aware what form the Sophomore stunt was going to take. It was held in the gymn., which was attractively decorated in the class colors, black and mauve. Crepe paper streamers were thrown over the rafters, giving it a cosy appearance. The baskets and lights were covered with mauve paper and tied at the bottom with large black bows. The two pianos were placed under a pretty archway at one side of the room. The suggestions offered for our stunt were many and varied, but we finally de- cided to dramatize " The Ancient Mariner. " In a very original manner we portrayed the albatross by a character from real life, and the good ship by a common ordinary wheel-barrow, steered by one of the lively members of our crew. The character, (the Ancient Mariner, was cleverly impersonated by Audrey Bradley. Our skit soon came to the grand finale. Not having expended all our originality upon our skit we strove to have some- thing different in the way of refreshments, and served cocoa, biscuits and eskimo pies. After thise de lightful repast the orchestra once more resumed its position and the dancing went gaily on. The stunt came to a very enjoyable close with the usual programme of class songs and yells, and everyone went off to bed feeling tired but happy. Si bim, si boom, si bim boom bah, Sophomores, Sophomores, rah, rah, rah. Though few we be, Youll always see, That we ' ve got the pep And we ' ve got the rep. A peach of a class are we. Hang on, cling on, push on, sing on, Call the S-o-p-h-m-o-r-e-s Sophomores. MARIE OTT " Happy am I, from care I ' m free Why aren ' t they all contented like me. " 1910 brought Montreal this curly haired damsel, and 1923 brought her to O.L.C. Like " sister Hazel " she has a heart almost as big as herself and having completed public school work, has spent this year in the First Form, and Freshie President. VIOLA POWELL " I do not what I ought, What I ought not I do. And lean upon the thought That chance will bring me through. " Ever heard of Cobalt ? Of course you have ' cause that is where Viola was born in 1908. Down she came from her home " in the north " co O.L.C. in September of last year and has worked and played with the Freshmen. MARION HENDERSON " Being good is an awful lonesome job. " Marion first climbed from the cradle in Chambly, 1910, but went to school in Montreal before coming to O.L.C. in 1924. This year she has had her first taste of Algebra and Latin but that has not hindered her in the least from having lots of fun. VINA LEWIS " Broad in mind, broad in stature, Bad at times, but good by nature. " Vinie first attempted to see light of day through the smoke of Pittsburg, 1906, but came to O.L.C. not long after. We have watched Vinie work her way up to the top in the Elementary Class, as in First Form, and as usual says she isn ' t com- ing back but we have a feeling that she ' ll change her mind. LUCIENNE ARBOISSIERE " Cette petite oisemi est tout au bon. " Lucienne was born in Avallon, 1909, but soon af- terwards went to " Gay Paree, " where she attended Public School. In 1924 she came to New York, spent the following summer at Camp Wapomeo, and last September entered the Freshman class of O.L.C. NELLIE WINCH " When do we eat? " Born in Toronto in 1910, but soon persuaded her parents to move to Belhaven. Helped to swell the numbers of the Freshmen in ' 24 and has since been developing her literary ability by writing for the Vox, not to mention carrying off the First Form prize. MARION CAMPBELL. " Not much talk, a great sweet silence. " Marion quietly made her entrance into this world of ours in Toronto, 1905. There she learned her A., B., C. ' s, etc., until New York borrowed her for awhile, but 0. L. C. wooed her back to her native land, and while spending the year with us she spe- cialized in Expression and the odd High School subject. BETTY BRADLEY " We measured her from side to side ' Twas three feet long and two feet wide. " Betty first saw the light of day in Toronto in 1914. She passed through the measles and mumps stage there, and came to O.L.C. with her merry lit- tle giggle in 1924 to resume her education and start life here as one of our illustrious Freshmen. ISABELLE AITCHISON " Hang sorrow! Care will kill a cat, And therefore let ' s he merry. " Another little mischief-maker was added to the Stouffville population in 1908. Isabelle provided some excitement for her teachers in Public School there and came to O.L.C. in September, 1924, to start her High School career as a Freshie. On Valentine ' s night the Freshmen Class entertained the school in the gymnas- ium. Numerous red hearts were used for decoration and for dance programs. The girls were divided into two groups as they entered, and then . . . horrors! they were asked to spell. Another form of amusement was a race between twelve girls to see who could pick up a row of hearts first. The girls in the Freshmen class dressed to represent different advertisements. Betty, in a white apron, cap and big spoon, represented Campbell ' s Soup, but was mistaken by someone for the colored man on the Cream of Wheat package. The school orchestra was very good in furnishing music, and we all enjoyed the dancing. During the winter time the Freshmen and Sophomores had a sleigh ride together. The sleigh was covered with hay, and although we were all on when we started, we didn ' t stay there all the time. We reached Oshawa in time for dinner, and then drove home ofter dark, singing and trying to keep warm. When you ' re in you ' re in, When you ' re out you ' re out. When you ' re up against the Freshies You ' re inside out. When you ' re down you ' re down, When you ' re up against the Freshies You ' re upside down. Green and white, green and white, We ' re the class full of fight. Give us a chance — we ' re alive — Freshies — Freshies — ' 25 . Class Officers Advisory Teacher ' Miss Scott President Marie Ott Vice President ' ' Lucienne Arboissiere Secretary Treasurer r ' ' B. Bradley DOROTHY MAW " HTie has her own idea of what ' s what. " Dot increased Hamilton ' s population in 1910. Spent part of Public School there, but sister Vi took her by the hand and brought her to O.L.C. in 1923 where she could watch over her with an eagle eye. We heard Dot say that she is going to stay till she graduates. So much the better. Dot has been the competent President of our Elementories this year. ELIZABETH McGINNIS " I have survived. " A lusty cry made known the year as 1915 and the place as Shawinigan Falls, Quebec. Soon after moved up into the wilds of Northern Ontario to a place known as Iroquois Falls, and there alcng with her playmates attended Public School. She came to O. L.C. in 1924, to swell the numbers of our Element - aries. VIVIAN DAVIS " Much in little. " Vivian arrived just too late to come down the chim- ney with Santa Claus in St. Catharines in 1912, She had her first taste of Public School there, and came to O.L.C. last Fall to go on with this necessary evil of getting " educated " and eventually her entrance. GERALDINE WRIGHT " 7 may have freckles, hut I have a spotless reputa- tion. " Jerry expanded her lungs for the first time at Cal- gary in 1911. She spent some time in the " Sunny South " and while there attended Elliot School. When she came to us in 1922 we thought of her as a " wee little girl " but we suddenly noticed we could almost see her growing, and she has kept righ t on doing it. HELEN DUNDAS " I ' ll not he tied to hours or painted times But learn my lesson as I please myself. " Helen ' s first lusty wails announcing her presence were heard at Toronto in 1911. In spite of numerous winters spent in Florida she has managed to reach almost the end of Public School work, and has every hope of making a grand finale this year and saying good-bye to the Elementary Class forever. KATHLEEN COLEMAN " She ' s young — hut she ' s wise " Our prim little Kate opened one eye in 1913 at Hamilton and feeling quite satisfied with the world decided she ' d stay. Between numerous trips to Flor- ida she managed to squeeze in part of her early education in Burlington Public School. Following " Big Sister " she came to O.L.C. in 1924. DOROTHY NICHOLSON " I ' m like the clock, go on and on There ' s someone winds my mischief up. " Fate decreed Toronto the lucky place, for there Dot was born in 1910. After she had learned all her nurs- ery rhymes, off she went, to Clinton St. School to re- main there until she came to O.L.C. in 1924. Her chief aim in life at present is to pass the Entrance and pass through the halls to the High School Class. " A modest blush she wears not formed by art. " Montreal was the stage setting for the early child- hood of Dorothy. Then the scene shifted to Toronto, and we find her at St. Mildred ' s College. She just came to us in Awil but we hope she will spend next year at ihe same address. Burlington was made a wee bit livelier in 1915 when " Lib " arrived. The same may be said of the Public School she attended, and we will all agree that our halls were made a whole lot peppier when the opening of school in 1924 brought " Lib " to us. " Why stay on this earth unless to grow. " 1908 introduced Dorothy to Harriston. She took it upon herself to attend Public School there, and came to O.L.C. in 1923 to increase the number of our Elementary Class, which class she still graces but the odds are that she will be lined up with the Freshies next year. DOROTHY CAULFIELD ELIZABETH COLEMAN " It ' s the little things that tell. " W DOROTHY CHAMBERS Honorary Teacher President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer - Geraldine Wright Helen Dundas Miss Johnston Dorothy Maw One snowy day in January the Elementaries secretly planned a sleigh-ride for the class. The sleigh arrived at four-thirty and we had a very enjoyable ride. When we got back we were told to go to Miss Johnston ' s table as there was a surprise awaiting us. The table was decorated in our class colors, orange and black, and each one had a cracker to pull. We were envied by all that evening because we had ice cream and cakes for dessert. Goody, for us! Friday, the thirteenth — Horrors! What a day to have a stunt ! The poster was up in the morning, and indicated that it was to be a baby party. That afternoon the student body was running around finding clothes babyish enough to suit its childish state of mind. It began at eight o ' clock, and., of course, everybody was on time. There were many baby games played before the programme began. The gym. was decorated in green and black, as it was near St. Patrick ' s Day. First of all we gave a demonstration of dumb basketball, which was most exciting and very dumb. Then there were a few dances. While the refreshments were being served four of the class did the Irish Jig in a very effective manner, and were eagerly encored. The refreshments were : Polar pies, cakes and punch, but of course being Friday the thirteenth, the polar pies didn ' t arrive. But, on the whole, it wasn ' t such a bad even- ing after all, and the Elementaries felt a big load off their chest when at last the classes had given their yells and the lights were turned out. The Elementaries had done their stunt. iElemptttarg §»tunt Yell:— One, two, three, four, Three, two, one, four. Who for, what for, Who are we going to yell for? E-L-E-M-E-N-T-A-R-I-E-S That ' s the way to spell it, Here ' s the way to yell it Elementaries Yes! Yes! Yes! " O come with me and see the spring! The bluebird ' s here, the robins sing, The crocuses are gay. " " But I have bought me rings and things, Rings and things and fine array, I cannot go to-day. " ' O come with me, the stars are bright, The little frogs pipe shrill at night, The wind the reeds doth sway! " " But I have made a sumptuous feast, A sumptuous feast with great display, I cannot be away. " ' O come with me, the brook is clear, It murmurs to the listening ear, Along its pebbled shore! " ' But I have bought me house and lands, House and lands, and goods in store, I think of spring no more. " ' O fool, eat, drink and merry be! Thy heart is with its treasury, Of raiment, food and gold Thy heritage of beauty rare, Of beauty rare and manifold — Thy birthright — thou hast sold! " — A. A. Maxwell. IGork ODttt Back in Babyland they had called him " Bumps " because of all the toddlers of that tiny tot town he was the best tumbler, and his chubby knees and dimpled el- bows were always a rosy pink from being — bumped. Was it only this morning? It seemed eternities to this wee lad, but it must have been just this morning, that Betty Cuddle, the adored mother of Babyland, on awakening him with one of her sweetest kisses, had told him that to-day he must leave for that world place — as all the babies called it. Of course, Baby Bumps rtid not want to go at all, but he didn ' t tell Mother Cuddle, because he remembered the look of pain that had crossed her lovely face when another baby had told her he didn ' t want to leave Babyland. Bumps never wanted to see her face any way but smil- ing. So he went about the business of saying good-bye to all birds, babies, flowers, and fairies. And, when no one was looking he crept away to his favorite sugar cane tree, and ate, and ate, just as many canes as his baby tummy could stand. Then he went back and sat on Mother Cuddle ' s spacious lap, sucking his fat fish, while she told him just how a new baby ought to act. Only too quickly it was time to go, and Bumps, throwing the last handful of kisses, ran out of the Golden Gate — past the bluebird sentinels — and started on his way to Earth. He had set out early so as to get there before dark, but weather conditions proved unfavorable, so it was late when he finally arrived. Poor little boy! The people to whom he was sent must have thought he wasn ' t coming that day, because the house was in total darkness. Bumps had rapped as hard as baby hands could on the silly old door, but no one heard. Then, he tried the door, but it was locked. He toddled around to the back (new babies can walk, you know, but they don ' t generally let you know at first, so that you will be all the more sur- prised when they do start), but the back door was locked even more tightly than the front. So he went slowly back and sat down, with his round rosy face cupped in his tiny hands, on the front door step — prepared to wait. He began to be sorry that he had come, and to wish he had hid in a bird ' s nest or something — maybe they didn ' t want him — perhaps they had wanted a girl and when Mother Cuddle wrote that she was sending a boy they were angry. It might be the wrong place. Anyway, if they were expecting someone they should have left the door open. Maybe — they had — but the golden head had dropped slowly, sleep- ily down, down until it rested on the chubby pink knees, and the wondering baby blue eyes closed in the soft sweet sleep of a tired infant. When Bumps awoke he was lying in the daintiest of tiny cribs, in the dearest Little room he had ever imagined, and, best of all — bending over him in utter ador- ation, was the sweetest little mother. Oh, she was sweet. Not quite as pretty as Betty Cuddle perhaps, but still a darling. " Yes, " cooed Bumps, gleefully, " I will forgive you for locking me out. But, please, " — and this with somewhat of a wait — " I do want my breakfast. " Now, the next time you hear of a baby being found on a doorstep, you will just smile wisely, because you will know that it really didn ' t mean to be found there, but that, like Bumps, it was — " Locked Out. " P. Baker, ' 25. ge Eighty On the morning of November 26th, O.L.C. was honored by a visit from Their Excellencies Lord and Lady Byng of Vimy. This was the third vice-regal visit in the history of the school, and preparations were made to do all possible honour to our distinguished guests. Beatrice Carruthers presented the address of welcome in which she expressed the extreme pleasure and honour which their Excellencies conferred upon us by their visit. She touched upon the special significance which Lord Byng ' s position as Governor-General held for all Canadians when they re- membered his connection with Canada in France, assuring His Excellency that the ideals for which his soldiers died in France were those which O. L. C. desired to uphold as the standards of her students. The school owed much to His Excel- lency for the medal presented through his generosity for literary competition, and this would attain to a still deeper meaning because of his visit. The address closed with felicitations to their Excellencies from the Board of Directors, the Faculty and Staff and the Student Body. This great event in the history of the school was culminated in a truly fitting manner by the demand of His Excellency for a general holiday the next day. For O. L. C. people President Southwick has become an institution, and a year which passed by without a visit from this distinguished friend of ours, for so we like to call him, would be a year incomplete. President Southwick, as usual, gave us two programmes, one in the afternoon devoted to comedy and our old favorites, and one in the evening given over to a more serious subject. The delightful interpretation of the Rivals, which is one of the best in his repertoire, was the " Piece de resistance " of the afternoon, followed by " The Camel, " of course our beloved camel, and the tragic tale of the ' " Marion Squiz;zle. " President Southwick is justly famous for his representations of Shakespeare, nut those who witnessed " Cardinal Richelieu " will be more than willing to include this remarkable piece of work in the approbation accorded to those with which we are more familiar. The Dramatic Class had the privilege of meeting President Southwick at the close of the evening, many of them renewing an acquaintance which is greatly cherished at O.L.C. I 925 Page Eighty-Two ilay Sag Gray clouds- — ! a cold mist — ! This is what greeted the eyes of the school ' s earliest riser on the morning that was to have been the most glorious twenty-fourth in the an- nals of the school, for, after all, every May Day is expected to be that. As it grew later, however, each new inquiring pair of eyes looked out at a day a little less gray, a little less cold. After breakfast, when a reconnoitering party set forth to investigate climatic conditions, and see if it were going to be too cold for the white middies and okirts, which inevitably go hand in hand with the May Court festivals — it was found to be almost warm enough to encourage even the most timid of us to venture forth in this garb. Supposedly at ten o ' clock, but fortunately for those who never can be ready on time, in reality at half-past ten, a bell rang which summoned us to the concert hall where we and our guests listened to a most interesting address by Miss Margaret Addison, Dean of Women at Victoria College, on " Ideal Canadian Womanhood. " In the election of our May Queen we try to keep in mind those qualities of womanliness which we so much admire, and choose the girl who in our opinion has these to the greatest degree. It is evident, therefore, how much depends upon the speaker who may unconsciously swing the vote merely by stressing or disregarding certain characteristics. This year we heard an address which was — instead of the usual cut and dried list of requirements, an appeal to the highest in ourselves, and a help in choosing the right girl. Miss Addison did not confine herself to superficial things, but spoke of woman ' s need of knowledge of reality, not only the cruel realities of life, but the glorious realities of beauty and joy: and of her need of vision so that she may see the worth-while things — and by seeing them and striving for them she may show others their desirability. She said also that the ideal girl must be unselfish and give of her best to those about her; must have poise both of mind and body, and possess that indefinable thing, personality. All these Miss Addison summed up under the title of womanliness. Guided by the words of this woman who through long experience knows girls -—both ideal and otherwise — the vote was decided in favor of Marion Norton, who seemed best fitted to wear the crown. Mr. Hamilton, the chairman, appeared to take the greatest delight in keeping us in suspense before reading the results. The coun- sellors — Olive Gibson, who was a close second for the honor of May Queen, and Beatrice Carruthers, were chosen only after three separate ballots were cast, amid much excitement. The May Queen and her counsellors left the hall, and hastily dressed, while the school lined up in preparation for the march, and our guests made their way to points of vantage on the lawn. At the end of the march an O.L.C. was formed on the grass, and then we drew up into two lines stretching from the throne down the length of the lawn. To the music of the Coronation March and followed by her court — Elizabeth McGinnis and Vivian Davis, train bearers; Kathleen and Elizabeth Coleman, cushion- bearers — the Queen made her way across the grass and knelt before Miss Addison while the crown was placed on her head. Then, wearing the pin which each May Queen keeps for one year, she walked slowly to her throne, between the rows of kneeling girls. A short programme of dances and gymnasium work followed, which was some- what enlivened by the inevitable tangle of girls and ribbons in the May Pole dance. After this long and strenuous morning the note of the dinner gong was a welcome sound. In respect for the May Queen the entire dining room remained standing until she had taken her place at the specially decorated table where she sat with her court, and four of our former May Queens; Mrs. Humuth-Craigie, Cort Reynolds, Olive Isaacs, and Jessie Bell. Then— a hurry and bustle to beg, borrow or steal dark skirts, sweaters and caps for the picnic, and everyone piled on the four big hay-wagons for the ride to the lake. Arriving there we found a drizzly rain which so dampened the ground and our spirits, that we quickly unloaded the supper, and took it to the verandah of a cottage, planning to have tea, and return to the school before the weather should become any more disagreeable. So intent were we on the enjoyment of sandwiches, cakes, fruit and coffee — that we did not notice that, over in the south-east across the lake the clouds had broken and let through a patch of blue, which was reflected in the water, and gave promise of a more cheerful ride home. Our expectations were fulfilled. As we again packed ourselves on the wagons so tightly that we envied the sardines in their roomy little cans — the sky was a bright blue, mottled with little white puffy clouds, instead of overhung with rainclouds as it had been during the day. There is something about late afternoon — and a sunset — and friends close about one — and old familiar songs — and pleasant memories — that brings to one an indes- cribable feeling of contentment and happiness. And so we ended our day. On the evening of Saturday, April 5 th, the Faculty presented their ninth an- nual play, " The Rivals, " by Sheridan, which was made doubly interesting by the fact that President Southwick had read several selections from it during his visit. Miss Maxwell, as Mrs. Malaprop, was delightful, and it was a joy to the hearts of her English students to hear her use mis-placed and mis-pronounced words. Miss Everson, as Acres, portrayed very clearly his bluff exterior, his strong instinct for self-preservation, and his good heart. Miss Burns, as Captain Jack Absolute, was a very handsome hero, well worthy of the beautiful heroine, Lydia Languish. Miss Merchant gave us an excellent portrayal of the Irishman, Sir Lucius O ' Trigger. Miss Fawcett played the unreasonable father to perfection. The Cast.

No one quite knows when this custom originated, but on each succeeding year the Sen ' lors who go out from O.L.C. look back upon this day with special warmth. The address was given by the Rev. Mr. Langford, the Rector of St. John ' s, who spoke simply and beautifully to the graduating class upon the first Baccalaureate Sermon that was ever preached in which Christ commanded his discipies to follow him throughout the world, adapting this to the position of the Seniors in their commencement of life. The communion service held in the chapel at night is always one of the most impressive occasions of the year, as it is the only time when the school, as a whole, has opportunity of joining in that service. We had no outside speaker. Mr. Fare- well, assisted by Miss Maxwell and Miss Ball, took the service. It was the first step to the parting that was to come so soon, perhaps the most solemn part of all the Commencement programme. uJIye Sluntora ' ilartg Hurrah! the Juniors are off on a party. By fuming and fussing, screaming and rushing, each had finally sorted out her partner, the originality of the committee having made it practically impossible to find one ' s mate among the many jumbled tags on the assorted backs of the " J ou y Juniors. " However, Jiggs had found Maggie, so let the war rage on. By noisily following the trail made by our leaders through the orchards and over the fields we come to our half-way stop, where we are presented with the most delicious apples that could ever grace an apple tree. ffi r The end of our chase is " Spruce Villa Inn. " Here we partake of the most gor- geous " eats " that imagination or appetite could desire. The tables are daintily decor- ated in the Junior colors, this having been done by the leaders of the pack. After tea the class joins wholeheartedly in the games and singing, and our Junior song is sung for the first time to the delighted listeners, who proclaim it the Juniors personified. Home again in the fast falling snow; one sees the flash of fifty O.L.C. sweaters the jerks and gestures of fifty blue and blue toques as the slippery pavement proves its worth to the funmaker. What a day! The work of the Athletics Association has been carried on most successfully this year. The various activities are recorded below, and have been unusually successful. Miss Snyder, the Honorary President, together with Miss Burns and our worthy President, Miss " Bunny " Hodge, have done much to create and maintain great en- thusiasm in all the athletic activities. The following were elected as Executive: Honorary President President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Basketball Rep. Baseball Rep. Tennis Rep. Hockey Rep. Ground Hockey Rep. Sports Rep. Also a Representative from each class. Miss E. A.

" On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; J [o sleep till morn, when youth and pleasure meet. To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.] ' At three-thirty p.m. the girls gathered in the gymnasium, which was artistically de- corated in " Blue and Blue " color scheme. The tables at one end, and the centre roped off for dancing, very much transformed the familiar barn-like appearance of the gymnasium. Without notice the orchestra burst forth into the first dance of the afternoon, and the assembled crowd was wafted into forgetfulness, and drowned its sorrows and Cares in the golden nectar of dreamy syncopation. Between dances refreshments were served, and the moment the " inner man ' " was satisfied, dancing was resumed. But all good things must come to an end and so ended the joyous afternoon. — E. E. P. THE RECEPTION The first Friday evening after our arrival at O.L.C., through an invitation from the Athletic Association, both the new and old girls gathered together in the con- cert hall. We were received by Rev. and Mrs. Farewell, Miss Maxwell and " Bunny " Hodge. After everyone became settled and quiet the programme began. Beatrice Carruthers rendered a very interesting reading, " Betty at the Baseball Game, " followed by many piano solos by our music students. Miss Merchant and Helen Bunner also delighted us with songs. Then the amusing part began. The old girls were each given a paper of pins. The new girls were to guess the names of as many old girls as possible, and according as her guess was correct she received a pin from the old girl. The girl " getting " the most pins received a prize. Jean Bullis was the lucky winner, and received an O.L.C. pin. After the prize was awarded refreshments were served and everyone enjoyed them immensely. The evening passed very quickly and everyone parted, feeling that they could connect as least a few new faces with the proper names. " SPORTS DAY " The day set for sports day dawned, a fair, beautiful day. Many relieved sighs were heard when several anxious students gazed out of the college windows. This was the day of days for O.L.C. track athletes. The weather conditions were so favorable we were able to have all the events outside, and the competitors put up a very keen competition, and each event was closely contested. The cup donated by F. L. Farewell was nobly won by F. Jean Bullis. The letters donated as second prize were awarded to Mary Rogers and Jessie Patterson, and the numerals as a well deserved third to Nina Edwards. Thanks are due to Miss Snyder and Miss Burns, Physical Instructress, for their splendid coaching and personal enthusiasm. Without their aid it would have been well nigh impossible to get the splendid results that were achieved. We believe the Nineteen Twenty-Four field day will go down in college history as one of the best. It will set a high standard for all newcomers. May they live up to it! — E. E. P. 21— WHITBY HIGH vs. O. L. C— 29. Our first game — and with what high hopes we looked forward to it. This game was played at Whitby High School, and a large audience was in attendance. Our girls turned out well and we believe helped our team on to victory with their varied " hurrahs " and " yells " , but — our team — ! they were certainly fine, and " played up and played the game " from start to finish. In this, our first game of the season, we feel each and all the players did their duty equally well, and we want to congratulate them on their victory over the Whitby-ites. Line-up : Forwards — " Marge " Snider, Rhoda Howe; centres — " Spike " McLennan, " Bunny " Hodge; guards — " Tote " Adams, Helen Bunner; subs. — Betty Wright, Virginia Frid. 19— BISHOP BETHUNE vs. O. L. C— 26. October nineteenth brought our team face to face with our worthy opponents at B.B.C. This was the cleanest game one could ever wish to witness. It wasn ' t slack and dead. No! Lots of pep, but no underhand work. Our centres and defences surely showed some fine combination, and when the ball reached our forwards they knew where to put it — and through the basket it would go every time. Again O. L. O. was victorious with the fine score of 2649. After the game our team was entertained by the B.B.C.s, by refreshments and dancing. At six-thirty p.m. the little " party " broke up, leaving every one with radiant, .smiling faces, full of enthusiasm and anticipation for the return game to be played in two weeks ' time. Line -up : — Forwards — " Marge " Snider, Rhoda Howe; centres — " Spike " McLennan, " Bunny " Hodge; guards — " Tote " Adams, Helen Bunner. 28— OSH AWA HIGH vs. O. L. C— 34. Tuesday, November fifth, our team started out once more to bring fame and victory to O. L. C. The game was fast, clean and exciting. " Oshawa High " has always been con ' sidered as having a great basketball team, and at the end of the third quarter they almost seemed " too much " for our sextette, but the fourth quarter was still to be played. Were our team discouraged? No! quite the reverse, and through the fourth period everyone just got " down at it " and our forwards " filled the bas- ket " every shot, bringing the score to 34-28 for O.L.C. Line-up : — Forwards — " Marge " Snider, Rhoda Howe; centres — " Spike " McLennan, " Bunny " Hodge; guards — Helen Bunner, " Tote " Adams; subs. — Lucille Brownelle, Betty Wright, Virginia Frid. 22— BISHOP BETHUNE vs. O. L. C— 30. On December third we welcomed the B.B.C. ' s within our walls to play the re- turn game. This was another good game. At the end of the first two periods it al- most looked as though our team would suffer defeat on their own ground, but at the end of the fourth period the score " turned " and again O.L.C. were known as " Victors " and rightly so, the score being 30-22. After the game refreshments were served, and the teams parted in hopes of some good games the following year. Forwards — " Marge " Snider, Rhoda Flowe; centres — " Spike " McLennan, " Bunny " Hodge; guards — Virginia Frid, Helen Bunner. SCHOOL BASKET-BALL TEAM Front Row— I. Adams, defence; R. Howe, forward (captain); H. Buiiner, defence. 2nd Row— B. Wright, sub.; B. Hodge, centre. Top Row — A. McLennan, V. Frid, sub.; Miss Snyder, coach; L. Brownell, sub.; A. Cornwall, sub. HOCKEY After Christmas we began to work, or rather play, and had as many hockey practices as the weather would permit. Our material was splendid, and we were therefore able to produce a fine team. Our first game was with Bishop Bethune College in Oshawa on February 18th. The Bishop Bethune girls were very fast, but not as heavy as our girls, and conse ' quently the game ended 2 ' 0 in favor of O.L.C. The return game was played in the town rink March 4th. Here neither team could make any headway, and after fifteen minutes ' overtime the score was 0-0. Owing to the short hockey season we were unable to play any more games, but we will hope for better luck next year. The team: Edith Playfair, goal. Always reliable and very quick. Rhoda Howe, right defence. Very energetic. Allows no one to get by her. Florence Semple, left defence. Makes good use of her weight. Viola Currie, centre. Always on the job. Helen Bunner, right wing. Plays the game for the game. Isobel Adams, left wing. A very steady skater. Subs. — Lillian McCormick, Nell Martin, Kay Burgess, Virginia Frid. BASEBALL Indoor baseball is becoming one of the most popular games among the girls of O.L.C. especially in the spring. As yet we have not played an outside school, but we hope to do so in a week ' s time, as a game is already arranged with Bishop Bethune College, Oshawa. Friday night was our inner school game. Two teams were picked by Miss Snyder, and the line-up posted, namely: the " White Socks " and the " Red Tips. " The game commenced at eight ' fifteen p.m., and everyone was eager to see who would win. At the end of the first two innings it almost looked as though the " Red Tips " would win, but at the final innings who won? The " White Socks, " with a score of 27-13. " White Socks " Catcher — E. Playfair. Pitcher — Miss Burns. First Base — M. Rodger. Second Base — - " Sunny " Peacock. Third Base — Olibe Gibson. (1) Short Stop — Helen Musgrove. (2) Short Stop — Nina Edwards. Field — Jean Allen. " Red Tips " Catcher — Lucille Brownelle. Pitcher — Miss Snider. First Base — Alma Cornwall. Second Base — Jean Bullis. Third Base — Vinie Lewis. (1) Short Stop— " Gige " Allen. (2) Short Stop — Lucy Ashbourne. Field — Lucienne Arboissiere. Now that the school year has come to an end let us just look back for a moment at what the S.C.M. has done for us. This organization has had a most successful financial and social year. You know best whether or not it has been successful in developing the religious side. We have been able to have many splendid meetings this year through the help of the faculty and students. Our first success in the social line was our bazaar. Christmas is a very busy, happy season for us all, and the S.C.M. bazaar is one of the most looked for and enjoyed of the Christmas functions. The girls, assisted by donations of all sorts, by patronage, and by work at the various booths, etc. The bazaar was formally opened by Miss Maxwell, and then began the chatter and the rush to see everything. The fancy-work booth was beautifully decorated in pastel tints and the name of " Rainbow Valley 11 seemed very appropriate. Next came the art booth and the art students certainly did work hard by the number of beautifully painted " boxes, " " hankies, " " calendars, 11 " fans, " on display. Needless to say the candy booth was popular and the " goodies " in artistic baskets sold like " hot cakes. " The athletic booth was aflutter with the dear old " blue and blue " in various articles such as sweaters, caps, cushions and pennants. Then crossing the hall we enter the tea-room. How pretty and Christmasy it looked, and one could see waitresses hurrying by with large trays of the best looking salad, cakes, etc. — everything one could desire. Above this pleasant din could be heard the strains of popular music from our school orchestra. Of course we visited the fish pond, and the fortune teller ' s booth. It was surely a great afternoon, and those who are returning next year are looking forward to the bazaar. Several visits have been paid to the Old People ' s Home, and we have taken " treats " to our " old folks. " They seemed to enjoy our visits so much. S. C. M. has been very fortunate this year in having so many fine speakers to address chapel and group meetings. In spite of a very busy programme we were able to secure Mr. Williams, whom some of the girls had the pleasure to meet at Elgin House. Mr. Williams comes from India, and at a delightful informal tea given by the Seniors in the afternoon, he spoke of the life and customs there. In the even- ing he spoke to the whole school chiefly concerning the student life in India. Then came our annual visit from President Southwick, and his very enjoyable and helpful talks. One of our most interesting chapel services this year lasted for over two hours, nnd even then the girls lingered to hear more. Wonderful stories about Russia were told by Baroness de Hueck, a Russian refugee. Quite a large amount of money has passed through the hands of the S. C. M. this year. The first campaign was to raise our objective for Eastern Students ' Relief. This appeal was answered in a very fine manner by our girls. Then there comes our annual gift to the " Star " Santa Claus Fund. This year we were able to send a donation to the " National S.C.M. " Our visits to the House of Refuge were financed by S.C.M. We must not forget that little cot which we are supporting in China at the Chentu Mission. We have given to the Lord ' s Day Alliance, and have had the great pleasure of sending a lovely Christmas box to children in Frontenac. You can see by these items just how the girls help by their gifts to S.C.M. It has proved itself a very worthy organization. =3$ EXECUTIVE Advisory Teachers - Mrs. Jeffery, Miss Coburn President ' - - Helen Bunner Vice-President ' - ' Jessie Bell Secretary ' Marjorie Kisbey REPRESENTATIVES Senior Class - - Beatrice Carruthers Junior Class - ' ' Violet Maw Freshman Class ' - - Marie Ott Elementary Class ' ' ' Dorothy Maw Student Christian Movement ' Olive Gibson Athletic Association - ' Gratia Hodge The favorite question from those who do not know to those who know all, is: " What on earth is ithe Honour Club? " And we proudly explain our self-govern- ing system to those who ask. At the beginning of the year privileges are granted to all. In return they pledge their honour to live up to ithe rules and traditions of the school, to be true to her and uphold her name. The Council, composed of the presidents of the organisations and classes together with an executive and two advisory Iteachers, are to do their best in helping the members to keep their word. Sad to say, there are now and then some students from whom these privileges must be withdrawn — and it is this disagreeable job which falls to the lot of the Council. It is thus we struggle onwards. This year, under Helen Bunners capable leadership, the Club has had an excel- lent year. But we look ever higher. Self-government is another step forward towards freedom, but it also means the development of personal self control. This rests with the individual. Each member, in her own way, helps to make the school. " She can be as wise as we And wiser when she wishes, She can nit vAth comely wit And dress the homely dishes.

When the first snow had fallen and everyone had longed for a jolly ride with all the pleasures it brings — the glistening snow — the jingling of the sleigh bells — and the good times, the Domestics ventured forth. All were happy in the anticipation of the glorious drive and hot dinner. The hopes of all were fully realized and the drive home by moonlight proved the end of a perfect day. The close of this busy year brings with it not only gratification at the work ac- complished, but also a feeling of sadness at the thought of leaving the dear old school. But in after year s we will recall the many happy hours spent amidst our com- panions under the skilful guidance of Miss Oakes. — Marion L.

Ball President Beatrice Carruthers Secretary Marguerite Jack ion Treasurer Evelyn Trick The Dramatic Cluh has, on three occasions this year, entertained the school. The first, Hallowe ' en night, was a little French playlet entitled " Ze Moderne Eng- lish, " by Robert C. A. Myers. It is the story of a French gentleman of rank, the Marquis de Trouville, who is taught English by a young American who falls in love with his daughter. It proves most amusing when the Marquis comes to visit the mother of his tutor, and they find that with his English is sprinkled too liberal a quantity of American slang.

We are now an organized ;class. Each term has brought us new members until we have more than doubled the membership of the opening term. A short time ago we held a meeting of all the Art students for electing officers and to decide on our pins, and we are now looking for- ward to many pleasant times together. As our class had been greatly reinforced by new members, we decided to start our sketching trips. Our first excursion was to the barn, to draw a likeness of Mr. Calf, but unfortunately, the day we arrived the calf was indisposed, and refused to keep still to have his portrait done. Undismayed, we turned our backs on the unsociable calf, and gave our full attention to the old cows. All went well until the people at one end of the row started cautiously moving up closer to the other end. When asked the reason for their sudden friendliness, they shook their heads and indicated a rather mild looking cow. Their companions, on stating they saw no £ause for alarm, were told, " Watch it. " Suddenly the sleepy looking animal became very much alive, tossing its head, kicking its feet and snorting in a truly fierce manner. This caused a good deal of speculation, until one of our number hit upon the reason, and in a stealthy whisper, announced to her neighbour, " Fleas. " A wild scramble to get away from the vicinity ensued, and, sad to say, or was it fortunte, that par- ticular animal was left strictly alone, and her companions received all the attention. By this time lunch was ready, and we all trooped away, taking care that the mem- bership of the school should not be increased through any act of ours. Our first sketching trip having been voted a success, many more followed. Some to the lake and others to different parts of the lanes and fields. On one of these trips we were just nicely started when we were overtaken by a shower. Nothing daunted, however, we stuck to our posts — or rather our brushes — for what are a few drops of rain in the name of Art. As it is growing warmer, we are now planning picnics and short trips, to be taken by the class; so that though we were late in starting we will always be able to look back on this year as a very happy and enjoyable one, no matter how far we may stray from our Alma Mater in the years to come. — F.E.S. Honorary President Miss H. Scott Edith Playfair Nellie Martin President Secretary Treasurer Rhoda Fnd When we girls of the Commercial Class first got together this year we planned to out-do the classes of former years, not only in si e, which was already apparent, but in accomplishment, class spirit — in fact, everything that goes into the making of an ideal class. Our first social event was on Sunday afternoon, November twenty-second, when we went for a glorious ride out by " Elmcroft, " McLaughlin ' s farm, on to Oshawa, and ' then back home for the " eats, " which come awfully close to being the best part of all social functions. We had spent nearly the whole morning in " The Domestic " making " pies ' n everything, " and we surely did justice to our culinary productions after the ride. Then later we had a fudge party when the fortunes disclosed by " Marjah " , in the person of Miss Scott, made us both gayful and fearful, but always ended just right, in the proper manner of fortunes. But, the social part isn ' t the only feature of our work that we have enjoyed. With Miss Scott as our guide, we have worked hard, and we hope well, to become efficient stenographers, who will some day be the " silent partner " in some prominent business man ' s office, as well as a credit to our Alma Mater. Miss Scott — Isabel! Spell " little. " Isabel — L-i-t ' t ' l-e. Miss Scott — You should say l- ' i ' double t-l-e. The next day Miss Scott asked Isabel to read a piece of poetry which began, " Up! Up! my love, the sun is shining. " Isabel (mindful of the lesson the day be ' fore read): " Double up! my love, the sun is shining.

I. H. (iktirlna Altogether the Okticlos has had a very successful year. We have had many pleasant social evenings together with an occasional visit from Miss Maxwell, Miss Ball and other members of the faculty. These meetings have proved most helpful from a musical standpoint as well as having some culinary interest for starving students. Mr. Atkinson is ever interesting and always willing to help us in any way. Any- thing from incapacitated cameras to mutinous metronomes is directly in his line! Our tea last November was acclaimed one of the best ever, and from all ap- pearances — or should we say disappearances? — was very much appreciated. We were unfortunate in losing our President, Helen Sharpe, soon after Christ- mas, and all sincerely hope that her health is now very much improved. Since her departure the Vice-President, Gratia Hodge, has assumed responsibilities, and has carried us through most efficiently. Someone truly inspired suggested that we invite the A.T.C.M. vocalists to our meetings this year. This we did, and were very glad to have them contribute to the programme from time to time. For many years it has been the custom of the Club to present a gift which will in some measure enhance the studio. A few weeks ago we purchased a very fine five piece suite of wicker furniture, which greatly improves the atmosphere of the studio. At a special meeting Marjorie Kisbey, on behalf of the Club, made the presentation to the School. Mr. Farewell acknowledged the gift with a few remarks, after which Miss Maxwell spoke for a short time on music as one of the beautiful things of life. We were all so sorry that this was our last meeting. However, Mr. Atkinson cheered us up a bit, as he always does, and we all felt that we had had a helpful and enjoyable year together. On the week-end of March the sixth, those of us who had not been fortunate enough to go home, were allowed the privilege of hearing Madame Lugrin-Fahey, who was giving a concert in the Methodist Tabernacle. Although Madame Fahey is no longer young, her voice retains the greater part of its admirable qualities, and despite the fact that in some of her selections it seemed slightly strained, her rendering, especially of the Scotch songs, was very pleasing. As almost everyone knows, the Chromatic Club is formed of the pupils of the Senior Resident piano teacher. This is but the second year of its existence; so that we are very proud of the successful year we have had. Having survived the first year exceedingly well, we decided to expose ourselves to public opinion. In the middle of second term examinations seemed a fit time to divert the work-wearied minds of our school-mates. So several of our talented mem- bers produced two club songs, and others practised some stunts to enliven the party. We arranged the gymnasium with easy chairs and lamps and cushions,, and on Sat- urday evening, January thirty-one, we opened the doors to receive our guests. The orchestra and a number of novelty dances helped to entertain everyone, and after refreshments had been served the party broke up. Oh yes! it was a decorous hour — not a minute more than ten-thirty. We all enjoyed that; and we have enjoyed our monthly meetings equally well. 1 hese meetings consisted of a short programme, a game or two, and refreshments. The programmes were furnished by Miss Meath ' s pupils; during the latter part of the year we were glad to have with us some of Miss Merchant ' s pupils, who gave us added pleasure when they sang for us. The success of our year has been, in a great part, due to the ready help and sympathy of our honorary president, Miss Meath. The club will miss her next year, but we wish her the best of what the years may bring. We trust, too, that after such a splendid beginning, the Chromatic Club will continue its successful career in O.L.C. GUjoral (Club Some mention should be made concerning, the excellent Choral Class we have had this year. There are several very fine voices, but of course that is only consideration. Under the conscientious leadership of Mr. Atkinson and Miss Merchant, we could feel the choral growing stronger and stronger as the year advanced — until on Commence- ment Day we contributed very largely to the programme. We made a special flourish when we included in our repertoire for the year — " May the Maiden, " a Choral Dance Cycle paraphrased from the ballet music of Faust by Charles Gounod.

In the Concert Hall on the evening of June fifth the Music and Dramatic Grad- uates of ' 25 presented to an eager audience the climax of their years of study. Chopin Handel (Joring-Thomas W. O.

It Was a Lover and His Lasr Polonaise in C. Minor Hederman ' s Valse Chopin ' s Polonaise in E flat minor was the first number to be played, a number worthy of mention, presented to us by Verna Jones. As Helen Bunner came to the platform there was a stir of pleasure in the audience. Everyone realized this selection to be one of great difficulty to master, and when Helen had finished, judging by the applause, one came to the conclusion that the difficulties had been well overcome. Patricia Gumley, of whom it is always said has great possibilities for a future career, pleased all with her splendid interpretation of Thomas ' " My Heart is Weary. " The audience looked both startled and very delighted when Beatrice Carruthers opened her number with the blasphemous remarks, " There is no heaven! There is no hell! " As Beatrice left the platform she was, as always, enthusiastically applauded again and again. Jonah is now a very popular man at O.L.C. Marion Norton sang very .sweetly once more the general favourite " II Est Doux, II Est Bon. " The next number, sung by Miss Edith Widdup, was certainly greatly enjoyed. Clear and sweet her notes rang out to the listening audience. Helen Mellow closed the program with two selections played so well that we felt indeed the evening to have come to its rightful climax, a conclusion, with the whole evening, to be remembered by all. " God Save the King " closed the Graduates ' Recital of ' 25. Undergraduate Urrital The second of the series of Commencement Recitals May 27th.

A very interesting number was MacDoweirs " A.D. MDCXX. " It was, of course, in 1620 that the Pilgrim ' s landed in America. The glorious richness of the harmony, and the steady, rolling rhythm, enabled us to fairly feel the indomitable spirit of the early fathers as the old galleon, lurching from side to side, finally conquered the deep. The yellow setting sun Melts the lazy sea to gold And gilds the swaying galleon That towards a land of promise Lunges hugely on. Sumnr Errttal For the past week we have heard pianos going on all sides of us. " Something must be going to happen, " was our thought, for only on rare occasions such as the (idd examination, do the ivories rage so fast and furious in Upper Main. Then we began to hear stage-whispered con ferences about the halls — " Do you have to play icxt Friday night? — Yes, do you? — I ' m just going to pass out, I told Miss Meath I simply wouldn ' t, but I guess I ' ll have to. — It ' s so dumb getting up there and playing in front of all those kids? — Oh, you people make me sick! You don ' t have to worry — If I could play like you — now if I could sing half as well as — ■ " etc., etc. So that was it! A recital to be given by the pupils of Miss Meath, Miss Widdup, and Miss Merchant. Page One Hi After a week of terrible expense and untold agonies for the artists, (and for their roommates), Friday evening, May 22nd, arrived. I say arrived — it thundered in as though it were making a last attempt to free the " much abused " performers. However, this was not to be, for although the storm succeeded in pitching us into darkness during the sixth number, nothing daunted, the recital proceeded, after a short interval, during which we had an unexpectedly delightful treat when Miss Merchant sang Grieg ' s " Solveig ' s Song " for us.

One of the most interesting musicales in many years was presented in the Con- cert Hall on the evening of February the seventeenth. Mr. and Mrs. Farewell, Miss Maxwell and Helen Sharpe, president of Okticlos, received the guests, who were ushered into the d ; mly lighted hall, which, arranged quite informally, made an appropriate setting for the memorable evening. The aud- ience which greeted the artists was indeed a very enthusiastic and appreciative one. For the past eight years the Toronto String Quartette has annually provided an evening of chamber music for us, but this year instead, two of the members, Mr. Frank E. Blachford and Mr. Leo Smith, presented a most delightful programme, as- sisted by Miss Johnston, Miss Merchant and Miss Kisbey, during which the Choral Club gave three charming numbers. Gounod ' s " O Divine Redeemer " , sung by Miss Merchant, was a most appealing number, and was enioyed even more than the " Ave Maria, " which is about the highest commendat ' on that can be given it. Remarkable technique was displayed in Rubenstein ' s Trio in E flat, the piano part being played by Miss Johnston, and we felt as we listened to the Grieg Sonata tor violin and piano that Miss Johnston and Mr. Blachford were in complete har- monious sympathy with each other. Miss Kisbey ' s singing tone and delightful touch was most noticeable in the Griego, though the Beethoven Trio was played with utmost ease. After this most interesting recital, light refreshments were served and the even- ing, which we had anticipated for so long, came to a close. Programme. . .

Miss Maxwell, Miss Ball and Miss Fawcett were honorary guests, and each member of the class brought a friend with her. These pupils, most of whom were entirely inexperienced in enter- taining in this manner, presented very successfully the following programme: Mosz ows i ■ - - Duet — Spanish Dance Muriel Ball and Marjorie Graham Hdtz Agnes Swain Pastorale Wachs Isobet.

Very dainty refreshments were served. Slarljmamtmff Srrtial It all began by a small unobtrusive sign being posted on our worthy bulletin board. Rachmaninoff! Rachmaninoff was to appear in Toronto March 23rd, at Massey Hall! We simply must hear him, that ' s all! So, after a very careful perusal into our various states of finance — eleven of us, casting our cash to the gentle zephyrs, proceeded west to the Queen City in two of Mr. Heard ' s cars. We had a glorious drive into a beautiful, though very quiet sunset, which seemed to be tucked down behind a row of tall poplars. And, although we were driving fast and straight for it — we never actually reached it, for by the time we arrived at the city it had quite disappeared, and simply refused to appear again until the next morning. But to return to Toronto — After playing " merry-go-round " for about ten min- utes we finally discovered Massey Hall hidden away somewhere on Shuter Street. Although it was very apparent, from the moment he entered, gaunt and limping, that Rachmaninoff was a sick and weary man, yet his will power and superb technical equipment never faltered and he gave a worthy account of himself, regardless of his handicaps. He started by playing the National Anthem " with a difference " that was very effective. 1. Caprice, Aid de Ballet (from Alceste) - ' Gluc -Saint Saens 2. Variations, C Minor - Beethoven 3.

Glow and warmth were very conspicuously lacking, but true greatness in intel- lectual power, in technical supremacy, and in artistic standards on his programme and throughout, was unmistakably present. One interestingly little mannerism we noticed was his fondness for crossing his hands. We came out after the recital, feeling greatly in need of a stimulant. So we called on Mr. Bingham, a very hospitable gentleman indeed, who sent us forth once again very much refreshed, and ready for our drive back. It was a glorious night and we all wished Whitby were 40 miles away instead of 28. However, all good things must come to an end some time or other, and so with our evening. But we were tired after our drive and were very glad to fall asleep dreaming of the great Rachmaninoff. W. ft. (C. iRprttal (Toronto Conservatory of Music) The sun was dipping behind the distant hills when several motors filled with happy girls left the College, and drove to Toronto to hear the O. L. C. concert at the Conservatory on Thursday evening, April 23rd. After a most enjoyable drive we arrived there with just time to greet our friends before being led to our allotted seats. In a very short time the lights were dimmed, and after a few remarks from Mr. Farewell, the recital which we had been anticipating for so long, became a reality. The long low platform with many ferns, flowers and palms, formed a very appropriate setting for a most interesting programme, consisting of solos and ensemble work, together with a very nice contribution from the Expression Department, by Beatrice Carruthers. For the second time this year we had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Frank E. Blachford and Mr. Leo Smith with Miss Johnston and Miss Marjorie Kisbey, and would like to express our appreciation to them for their very willing co-operation and as- sistance in our programme. Miss Merchant ' s " O Divine Redeemer, " to which they supplied obligates, was well worthy of praise. Detailed criticism will not be necessary — suffice it to say that the whole recital was thoroughly enjoyable, and we were very sorry when, like all wonderful things, this evening had to come to a close, but we left the hall very proud of O.L.C.

Indeed, we think the girls who attended this very fine musical treat on March fourteenth, will always remember it as one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year. Since last September our Exchange Department has been very busy receiving and exchanging with the many magazines, papers, etc., which the Universities, Colleges and High Schools have sent us. These many magazines have shown evidences of capable editorship and careful preparation in every department, and it has indeed been a pleasure to receive exchanges such as these. We sincerely hope our intercourse will continue in the future. We regret that we are unable to exchange this Year Book, but hope we will be able to send our next Christmas " Vox " in exchange for those we have received.

One day while one of the girls was wait- ing for the train to Toronto at the C.P.R. station, a freight train pulled in and side- tracked for the passenger train. When it started to do it ' s switching the O.L.C. student looked on with interest, until the freight brakeman yelled to another: " Jump on her when she comes by, Bill, run her down by the elevator, cut her in two and bring the head end up to the depot. " Who could blame the frightened dam- sel for running into the waiting room.

Morning, noon and night, she is wanted everywhere, and is always ready to respond cheerfully, whether it is playing the piano, rounding up a team, or just helping some- one out. Many frankly admit that they love her, and there isn ' t anyone, who does not like her. We will always remember her at the piano, playing that kind of Doo Waka Doo, that is irresistible, with her thick short yellow hair pushed behind her ears, her rosy lips and cheeks always on the verge of wrinkling into a smile for whoever may catch her blue eyes. " Anybody seen Vir-gin-ia? " calls a very little miniature Miss Twenty-Five, for the umpteenth time in one day. Her hair is brown, Dutch cut and straight, and her eyes an indefinite color except when red from shedding copious tears. If you can ' t guess who she is, just ask the vice-presi- dent of the senior class who the smaller portion of the " Mutt and Jeff " combina- tion is, whom she sends back in the line every meal. If you did not see this person, when she was all dressed up for a concert in her lovely pink evening dress and high heeled slippers, you might mistake her for a mus- ical child prodigy, for she is small and dainty with her light bob usually beauti- fully marcelled. Most of us have received unstamped mail from her too, which was not always appreciated. It might be add- ed that she has been in the school longer than anyone else. Taken quite unawares you are suddenly smothered by a big hug, followed by a thrilled little gurgle close to your ear. After recovering a bit you run your fingers through the mass of short, thick dark red curls on your shoulder, then tipping her head back and looking into her deep blue eyes, venture to ask, " Who is she now? " " How long will this one last, two days or forever? " But she has lots of brains as well as a warm little heart, and it you can ' t possibly guess who she is, ask her music teacher. We all address her as Miss but speak of her by a nice little name in three letters. Once in a while we might call her " The Flaming Youth " but that is only when she wears that red dress. Her short light hair, blue eyes and cheery smile give her a sun- ny appearance, which quite agrees with her cheerful disposition and kindly man- ner. Always ready to help anyone in trouble or comfort anyone who is blue, she scarcely ever has her leisure moments to herself. Who is it who is beautiful but dumb? Who never has a troop of followers? Who is N. G. in sports? Who hasn ' t that school girl complexion, which is kiss-proof? Who hasn ' t a long line? (physically) Who hasn ' t that acquiline nose adorned on spe- cial occasions by heavy Honed rimmed spectacles? Who has those thin colorless eyes? And, ah! who doesn ' t just dote on Toodles? In our midst is one, especially obliging, who has teasing brown eyes, a slick black bob and a quick temper. Always ready to partake in any kind of sports, she is prominent in athletics, and there isn ' t much that she can ' t do in voluntary gym. As a ray of light we might add that she comes from the other side of the border. FOURTH FORM Can you imagine — Evelyn Trick not answering back? Kay McKay with nothing to say? Spike McLennan without a " crushie " ? Vi Maw on time for classes? Dot Lounsbury with 20 per cent.? Kay Jenkins forgetting Miss Everson? Helen Musgrove as a pessimist? Marg. Graham snubbing Spike? Isabelle Roberts as a Gym teacher? Jean Young on a step ladder? Bessie Schlenker understanding Geom- etry? Bunny Hodge not in it? Gige — What is it that has its mouth open and can ' t close it? Mary Rodger.- — A cave? Gige — No, Jean Bullis. Is it to study French only that Kayje spends so many long blissful hours in pri- vate lessons with Miss W.? Tote to Granny (looking at her proofs) I think this looks an awful lot like Jean, but I like the other better. Johnny went to College He liked a girl called Nell One night he got too jolly She said, you go to — grass. He took her to a clam bake They sat upon the sand And every time he got a chance He held her little — purse. Johnny had a room-mate The room mate ' s name was Sam And every time Sam looked at Nell John frowned and said — " Dear me! " They went out to the movies The light they didn ' t miss But people all around them Heard the little — whisper. Johnny grew quite serious " This girl is worth my life " And so he popped the question ' Will you be my — Secretary! " Heza — I don ' t think mother ' s don ' t like her looks. Do you? Nut. — ' No! I never did. we 11, I The sun peeped shyly into the windows at the many tousled heads, half submerged under quilts and blankets. Everything was so very quiet, that a half sheepish expression stole over his face at the thought that he was the only one up at this outlandish hour. At that instant a. bell rang, just one curt little clang, as if afraid that it might frighten the dream fairies away. Here and there one or two sleepy figures turned over, but most of them slept on tranquil and quite undisturb- ed. After a little while the bell sounded again, this time twice and with more au- thority. Even if a little white cloud had not passed over the modest sun at that mo- ment he would not have been able to count more than a dozen who roused themselves to leave their comfortable beds. Now the sun was becoming quite dis- gusted with these drowsy young people, and the bell, losing all patience, rang ang- rily three times. Three times — and out of bed tumbled every one. Windows banging, doors slamming, ex- cited voices calling back and forth! What a scurry and hurry! The sun grew warm with the increasing excitement. Not even time left to breath now, everyone running, slipping and sliding for the goal — the breakfast line. The warning shrieked shrilly through the halls, four loud decisive clangs, even the big tower bell joined in with his loud, deep voice, just as the last foot left the stairs. Everyone breathed again in safety. The gong sounded melodious and calm, while the line passed into the dining room.

Long lines of horses and buggies were fighting their way through the sea of hu- manity. The silent policeman was help- less, being continually knocked over by the reckless drivers dashing around with their self-starting, thorough-bred farm horses. The Whitby Brass Band was playing, " Be they ever so painful there ' s no teeth like your own. " Then — a small hesitant figure wrapped from top to toe in a middy and skirt, drove slowly by in a handsome equipage, a horse with a buggy behind. Spikey had come home! Even her hand- some, big slender husband, Marquis de Bun- ny, sank into the background, although everyone was anxious to see him. But it was Spikey ' s night. Miss Snyder who had so much to do with making her what she is to-day, introduced her to the crowds. She swayed as the applause hit her square between the eyes, and had to stretch up and place her tiny paw on Bun- ny ' s shoulder, big and brawny. After all it was such a night as we shall probably never see again, and after the ex- citement was over, Spikey and the Marquis retired to Spikey ' s gorgeous apartment, 25 Lower Ryerson, shutting the door very, very firmly between themselves and the madding crowd.

It was true that nothing had been proved against her but they were all sure that something was being kept dark which they should know about. This girl had a shifting glance, a guilty look, apparently she was all right but — ? Th sn one day the whole aliair came to light. Her Engiish teacher was the one to catch her at it. The poor child ' s reputa- tion was spoiled forever. No doubt of it — It was during exams. Yes to be truthful in the English Exam. It had come to light when the papers were collected. " Heart- less, cruel, unfeeling girl, " howled the teacher, " she has split a poor harmless little infinitive.

Ruddy as the whispering leaves That fall in autumn; Ruddy as the blood Of a mosquito Squashed by a snowy hand On a June night, Under the silvery beams Cast by the gleaming street lights. They were Jerseys. But one among the rest Joined not the gossiping throng But sat apart And chewed her cud alone. Deep in thought she was Of lovely things; Soft gummy cuds, Gobby, gooey, gummy cuds, Half ' dreaming on The taste of fresh green grass. She was flecherizing. II. She was beautiful — Beautiful as a Ford car In all its fresh black paint. Her sleek red coat Looked freshly manicured By her spined tongue. Her horns, short and rounded White as the driven snow That lies on Yonge Street In late afternoon. But whiter still The well-brushed teeth That coyly peeped Between her flappy lips, A deeper rose they were Than her fair cheek — She used Pompeian. But ah! her eyes Like two clear amber pools They were; Filled with translucent light, Shadowed by long fringe; Lashes, black as shoe polish, But then — her motto was " Two in one for aye! ' There reposed she, Gazing out upon the world Complacently In melancholy placidity. I wondered Oh! how I wondered Why she joined not The other kine. Upon the eminence That, covered with An evanescent mist of green, Rose into the hazy depths Of the cerulian sky, I wondered. But her expression, Woe-begone, And yet aloof, Betrayed her. She was not wanted! Her psychicura Disturbed the complex Of the other kine. For she had fleas. We wonder why Kayje sings " I M.E. " with such fervor and pathos. love Nancy (after long talk with Mr. F.) — I guess Fll turn over a new leaf now. Jean — It ' s a good thing there isn ' t a charge on them.
