Jfaretoell Tour Editor-in-Chief has indly as ed me for a brief message to the students of J 92 v 26. Perhaps the best I can do is to recall some of the thoughts that have persistently been with me in respect of you throughout the College year. Again and again in different ways I have implied or have directly said to you that your ideals shoidd be ever high, that you should believe in yourselves, and that you should exercise that power of will which will enable you to attain your ideals. I suppose I shall ever be an idealist. I could not be other if I would. Ideals, I verily believe, constitute the most potential force in the world. Your ideals are your best selves, your real selves. Hold to them steadfastly. Some one has beautifully expressed the same ideas in these words — " Let your ideals be high and never lower them, For you CAN conquer if you believe you can. " Cherish your ideals. Wherever you are, whatever you may be doing in the world of social life or vocational activity or home asso- ciations, cling to your ideals and become them, dare and DO or die. This is the most earnest wish of one who shall follow always your respective careers with faith and hope and love.

It is brief in form, infinite in content; you will find it in the poems of " A.E. " " It would be unjust, Unjust, if we Could dream of a beauty We might not be. Life is becoming All we see.

M. Coburn Page Fifteen The sun is out, the skies are blue, The grass is green and soft. The old charm is back in the apple-tree And is calling us aloft. And the same old voice that the old don ' t hear But we carefree youngsters do. Is calling us back to the heart of thee, And the joys that once we knew. With Commencement comes the end of school-days at O.L.C. for so many, not only the graduates, but also many others who will not be able to return. They go forth from these old walls with heavy hearts, for they realize that one chapter of their lives is closed never to be re-opened, and they linger, as over the last pages of a dearly loved book which they are loathe to put aside. Why does our Alma Mater fill such a large place in our lives? We all know that we love her dearly, but we seldom pause to consider why. It is partly on account of the friendships we form here, but there is something more — it is that intangible something which makes these friendships so dear to us, and makes them different from other friendships — the spirit of O.L.C. The spirit of every school has its own particular significance. In some schools it is merely a desire for victories in rugby or basketball, in others, for the honours in debates, but the spirit of O.L.C. is that force which incites us to put all our energy into whatever we may undertake, and to make a success of it, no matter how di fficult it may appear. Every daughter who goes forth from these halls, if she has grasped this spirit and made it a part of her life, owes a great deal to its influence; it has r aught her to enter whole-heartedly into work and play, and to do her best, no mat- ter how poor that best may seem.. This spirit has lived within these walls for more than fifty years; each year it is fostered anew and is strengthened so that it permeates the very walls of the build- ing, and is felt as soon as one crosses the threshold. It becomes so much a part of us that we hope when we stand at the gate, as we must one day stand, bidding Page Sixteen larewell to O.L.C., we may break off our twig of this ever-growing plant, and carry it with us always. We know that when we first go out from our school its name is branded upon us, but as time goes on this name gradually becomes indistinct and is lost, unless we take care to preserve it. When our turn comes to leave our Alma Mater, let us keep her name shining clear and bright, and strive to bring honour to this name, by living up to her ideals and following the teachings of her spirit. We may never gain honor or fame in the eyes of men, but if we have followed the voice of our school spirit we shall have attained success; for success, as interpreted by the spirit of O.L.C., does not mean wealth or fame, but doing the best we can under every circumstance, and at all times. — D. J. L. " The old order changeth, yielding place to new In drawing to the close of the year, v e are about to turn another page in the lustory of Trafalgar. This year our school has moved forward with strides. Each girl has taken a keen interest in every branch of activity. The students give to our col- lege its most valuable qualities by holding to tradition, yet not allowing the past to bind ihem, for each student body has its own individuality and ideals. A splendid spirit of unity has been created among the classes and individual students. During the past year several innovations have been introduced. To begin with there is study hall which most closely affects each one of us. More pleasant to con- template is the new crest which we hope will grace the middies of all the future generations at O.L.C. And our frills! — to an outsider this may convey little or noth- ing, but to us it conjures visions of long black-stockinged legs, surmounted by a white middy from which there issues a brief pleated skirt — four (?) inches is the regulation length — and there you have our frills. Maybe they are not much to look at, but they are. so convenient for tennis and gym. There is, however, one thing which has been the desire of every student body for some years past, which has not yet been realized; that of changing the name of our college. In one of the old Whitby Gazettes it is referred to as " A Female School for Girls. " We admit that " Ontario Ladies 1 College " is a slight improvement on that, but even so it conveys the wrong conception of our school. We have no wish to suggest that we do not aspire to be " ladies " in the truest sense of the word, but we certainly are not so mid-Victorian as this title would imply. There are several ideas for a new name, all giving a truer impression of our beautiful building and spacious grounds. We love our Alma Mater as " Dear old Trafalgar, " and hope that some day the beauty of that stately name may become a part of our school ' s title. Surely such a name would be an incentive to every girl to put forth her best efforts to attain her goal. All of us have striven this last year and some perhaps have achieved. We feel we may say with gratitude to our Alma Mater: " Take the praise that ' s due yoi School-house on the hill, We ' ll be faithful to you While remembering still This one word you taught us Hand, heart and soul, This high gift you brought us, How to ma e the goal. " — E. H. G. £ nttor (Elaas ong Year after year have the Seniors sung The glory of Old Trafalgar, Songs filled with love in their hearts have rung Sounding from coast to coast; Spirit of Blue and Blue calls them to bring Tribute of joy and truth, Year after year will the Seniors sing The splendour of O.L.C.

" Introductory — On the dark stormy night of November 13th, 1905, Nell ' s fingers sounded the first note in Life at Hamilton. Primary — This bit of the melody compos- ed at Loretto Academy and Kingsthorpe School, where Nell rapidly grew in wis- dom and stature. Junior — Here we find Nell attending Hamilton Collegiate and making rapid strides towards Matriculation. Intermediate — 1924 sees Nell in the ranks of the " jolly Juniors " at O. L. C. She makes many close friends by her sunny smile and cheery words, and stud- ies music and Matric. A.T.C.M.— 1925 and lo! our Nell is Senior President and succeeds in steering the Seniors as well as the whole student body through a happy year. June sees her blossoming as an A.T.C.M. graduate. After summer abroad Nell will continue her music at home. Favourite Expression — " I ' ll see Mr. Farewell about that matter. " Hobby — Catching up on her lost re pose. Anna £ penB " Where ' er she met a stranger There she left a friend. " Anna ' s name was inscribed in the family Bible at Brampton, Ont., on January twen- ty-fourth, 1908. Since then she has tra- versed Canada and the States, settling in various places and advancing in her school career at every turn. Her present home is in Winnipeg, where she trudged through some of her High School days. September fifteenth, 1924, was the eventful day on which she found herself within the walls of Trafalgar Castle amid strangers galore. Her good nature and sunny smile won everyone ' s heart, and when she came back to us in the fall of 1925 she was welcomed with open arms. She was elected Vice-President of the Sen- ior Class and Secretary of the Honour Club. This spring we chose her as our May Queen, deeming her very worthy of this honour. Anna is quite proficient with her brush and is the popular President of the Art Class. She is graduating in M.E.L., and hopes to continue her studies at Manitoba University next year. Hobby — Attending gym. classes. Favourite Expression — Hello puppy! Puge Twenty ifr ' i Elizabeth. iEnloui ' Tis well to be merry and wise Tis well to be honest and true. " In blew Liz with the blustering March winds in 1905, to Canton, Ohio. When yet a wee babe she went to Oshawa with her parents and there spent her childhood days. Her next home was in Hamilton, where she acquired most of her education. The seats of learning which she attended were the Adelaide Hoodless School and the Hamilton Collegiate. In 1924 Liz came to O.L.C. to cook and sew with the Household Science Class. She carried away the highest honors of the Jun ' ior Household Science Class of 1925, and has made another splendid showing in the graduation class of ' 26. This year she is treasurer of the Senior Class and also Li- brarian of the choir, for Liz has been pro- gressing very favorably in vocal. Next year she hopes to complete her pu- pil dietitian course and may then train for a nurse. We certainly envy the tender care and tempting delicacies her patients will receive. Hobby — Arranging things artistically. Favourite Expression — " M-e-r-c-y. " Eleanor Maart " She wears well. " Nineteen years ago Eleanor brightened Kingsville with her first smile. While still a mere infant she journeyed to Essex, where she cut her teeth, wore hair bows and socks and began her education. After passing her entrance she entered Essex High School where she received her Ma- tric. We are told that during her High School days she was a basketball player. In the fall of 1925 she came to O.L.C. and has since been striving for honours in the Commercial class. Eleanor ' s talents are varied for she can manipulate the keys of the piano as well as the typewriter and has delighted many of us with her playing and singing. As a member of the Senior Class executive she has been a very ef- ficient Secretary. Eleanor is leaving us this year with the intention of applying her newly acquired knowledge in some business house. We sincerely hope that she makes a huge suc- cess of her future. Hobby — Typing. Favourite Expression — " It ' s a darn shame. " G RADUATING CLASS Borgia Allan " A brow the harbour of fair tho ' ts And sunny golden hair. " " Gige " made her first appearance eigh- teen years ago in Hamilton on a sultry day of July. - She went sailing through public school and attended High School in this notable city until the Christmas of Nine- teen Twenty-four. After this particular Christmas she came to O.L.C. and com- pleted her second form work. The fol- lowing September " Gige " again returned to launch upon the mysteries of Household Science course. Besides completing her course this year " Gige " has had many other things to keep her busy. She has been working away at her piano and is Vice-President of the Okti- clos, and also the competent business manager of our Vox. As far as we know " Gige " intends to take her Dietetics course in the hospital next year, and after that — well! All " Gige ' s " many friends wish her the best of luck and happiness in all her future undertakings. Favourite Expression — " By jove. " Hobby — Managing O. L. C. " s far-famed beauty parlour. iflary ilaumnnfi Hmum " Speech is the gift of all But thought of few. " Mary came into the world without ut- tering a sound, not even so much as the " peep " of a chick or the " quack " of a duck- ling. We are sure she must have realized that " silence is golden. " Mary was born at Niagara-on-the-Lake in 190?. In due time she took her little dinner pail and trotted off to school to learn her a b c ' s. There she worked diligently until she received her Junior Matric and some Senior subjects. In 192? Mary journeyed to O.L.C, where she has been working on the rest of her Senior Matric and taking dramatics in her spare moments. This June she leaves Trafalgar with an M.E.L. diploma safely tucked under her arm. Mary is planning to attend Varsity next year where she wishes to study Household Science and learn to concoct tempting dainties. May good luck always be with you, Mary. Hobby — Geometry. Favourite Expression — Oh, Pickles! Payr Twfitity-TWO GRADUATING CLASS mm Anbvtw (Eamrron A truer friend were hard to find. Audrey embarked on the sea of life in the year 1906 in the town of Beachburg. She travelled from there to Kippewa and then to New Liskeard seeking some place suitable to try her luck in learning the three Rs. Espanola then claimed her and here she spent three years in High School besides passing her Junior piano examina- tion. In 1923 Audrey came to O.L.C. with high ambitions. She spent a successful year and obtained her Intermediate piano exam. Last year she took A.T.C.M. piano with vocal as a diversion. This year finds her graduating in A.T.C.M. piano and she also obtained her Intermediate vocal. Audrey has very ably filled the position of Honour Club President this year. Good luck to you, Audrey. Hobby — " The characters in Julius Cae- sar. " Favourite Expression- get out. " Ann (Eallaljan " She who rises late, must trot all day. " Nineteen years ago Ann put Huntsville on the map by making it her birthplace. In spite of the well-known saying " Ignorance is bliss " Ann decided to take a chance and obtain a little knowledge. She attended the Huntsville Public School where she receiv- ed her entrance and then entered the local High School where she obtained her Junior Matric. In 1924 Ann came to O. L. C. to take the Household Science Course. In her spare periods she has done splendid work on her intermediate piano. The two years that Ann has spent at O.L.C. have been most successful. She is leaving us to take a dietetics course at Calydor Hospital, and later intends to become a nurse. Here ' s the best o ' luck to you, Ann, in whatever you may under- take. Hobby — Saying what she thinks. Favourite Expression — " Got any water, kids? " ( ' din Twenty-Th » i In 1906 the stork visited Innisville, Al- berta, and dropped little Irene on the door- step of her pleased parents. Irene liked the west and so she resided there for a number of years, but later she decided to explore the east and moved to Ingersoll, Ontario, where for a year she attended Ingersoll Collegiate. The fall of 1923 found her entering the portals of O.L.C. Here she helped to swell the numbers of the Sophomore class for a year, but found she could not resist the tempting aromas that issued from the Household Science kitchen, and so " Ikey " started the Domestic Science course the next year. She has made a great success of it and is this year president of the Domestic Class. Everybody agrees that " Ikey " is " just the best kid ever " and so we all wish her suc- cess in whatever she intends to do. Favourite Expression — Gee Whiz. Hobby — Growing UP. July 16, 1906, was the first birthday of Mabel Eileen Elliot. Born in South Dur- ham, Quebec, she skipped through Public School, sailed into High School, and fin- ished with honours at Stanstead. She tasted the joys of home life for one short year, then decided to pursue the phantom of music at O.L.C. By the end of her first year she had completed both Inter- mediate and part A.T.C.M. She hesi- tated for a moment about taking her A.T.C.M. last June, and resolved that it might be a good idea to return in Sep- tember and try her A.T. in February. Lo and behold! When she did come back she immediately perceived that Senior piano was not enough. She would grad- uate in Household Science. There you have her! So in June Mabel carried off two diplomas, one in Household Science and one in A.T.C.M. piano. Such ver- satility! Hobby — Sh! — it ' s a secret! Favourite Expression — Oh, really — Page Twenty-Four. G RADU ATI N G CLASS 1 " Being good is an awful lonesome job. " Elementary — Started boldly on the high- way to knowledge. Freshman — Miss Murchie — also showing lots of pep in the class room. Sophomore — Still absorbing erudition. Junior — Her good behaviour continues to prevail?? Senior — We find her deporting herself with grave dignity she has successfully filled the offices of Athletic Secretary and Vice- President of the Commercial class. Rhoda ' s ambition is to become a strong-minded business woman, hence she graduates in the secretarial course. She intends to en- rol at the Toronto Conservatory of Music next year, where she will complete her A. T. C. M. Aversion — Second helpings. Idiosyncrasy — Travelling the well worn path between 7 Main and 17 Lower Fran- ces at all hours. Favourite Expression — " Frances — at. " " Distant until you now her for awhile, Friend to the last, who greets you with a smile. " Under the stormy January skies of 1904 not far from the town of Uxbndge Mary wriggled her little pink toes for the very first time and made the astonishing discov- ery of how it felt to be alive. Five or six years later this same Mary wended her way schoolward in search of knowledge. She found it in the little vill- age school house which claimed her as one of its most promising pupils until she passed her entrance. Instead of going on to High School she made an intensive study of music at home. In the fall of 1925 Mary took up her residence at O.L.C. as a member of the Senior Class of ' 26. She has reached the goal of her ambition and is graduating in A. T. C. M. In her short year here Mary has made many friends and we all wish her the greatest success in the years to follow.

" Full of enthusiasm, Always game. " Bunny first started playing the game at St. John ' s, Newfoundland, August 28th, 1907, but at the age of nine, desiring a larger field, she moved to Toronto. Soon deciding that a change would be as good as a rest, she came to Trafalgar Castle as a Juni or in 1923. Since then she has filled a large place in the school life of O.L.C. Her name has been on the shield, and, as Athletic President for two years her unfailing en- thusiasm has made Athletics mean a great deal to us all. She has held many offices, as, Vice- President of the Okticlos, taking over the Presidency, a member of the Honour Club Executive, Vox Staff and S. C. M. Com- mittee. She graduates this year in Honour Ma- triculation. She has spent some time on her music, taking her Intermediate and now making a success of AT. CM. Bunny has won her way into every heart and leaves a place that will be very hard to fill. Favourite Expression — " Oh fer my sake. " Hobby — Trying to reduce. " The quality went in before the name went on. " Twas a cold December day in 1906 when K. J. first greeted this planet with a lusty shout. Ever since she has held a prominent place in this jolly old world of ours. She spent her childhood at Brown Public School in Toronto and later attend- ed Davenport Collegiate. Four years ago K. J. decided to leave Toronto and make O. L. C. her home for at least a year. She heard, year after year, that nameless voice we all hear, calling her back and so she remained at O.L.C. for four years. K. J. has climbed rung by rung through High School days to her Senior Matric and graduates with the Sen- iors of ' 26 in the M. E. L. course. She has played a large part in the school activities and had the honour of being S. C. M. President and Senior Representative for the " Vox " . Both offices she has filled admirably. We all wish you every good fortune, K. J- Hobby — Stamping her foot. Favourite Expression — " Oh! " mm Page Twenly-Siw f GRADUATING CLASS " 1 unmeiodtous was her song It was a hearty note and strong. " Twas the 26th of March, nineteen five, in the city of Hamilton, that Jeanne first began her career in this interesting world of ours. Her public school days were spent at the Adelaide Hoodless School, where she ob ' tained her entrance into the Hamilton Cen- tral Collegiate. Here Jeanne won many laurels, had a jolly good time and graduated with her Senior Matric. Knowing that no girl ' s education is com- plete without a year or two at College, she decided to pay a visit to O.L.C. Here Jeanne has taken an active part in the school life, and made lots of friends. She is treas- urer of the Athletic Association, and edi- tor of " Who ' s Who " on the Vox staff. Jeanne graduates this year, taking away with her a commercial diploma and also the best wishes of her friends. Adieu Jeanne! Hobby — Arguing. Pet Expression — Well — I don ' t know — . 0urntl|y H ' ounsburij " Bright and clever, Sweet and gay Always the same From day to day. " This play begins in January, 1908. The scene is laid in the City of Hamilton As the curtain rises a dainty little girl, Dorothy by name, comes tripping onto the •stage of life all smiles and " dimples. " After getting her entrance at Adelaide Hoodless public school, she spent two suc- cessful years at her home town collegiate. The next (big) event of Dot ' s life was when in September, 1924, she boarded the train for Whitby Junction and O. L. C. Within Trafalgar ' s Inspiring halls she took her Junior Matric, combining two years in one. This year finds her battling with the problems of Honour Matric work. Her activities are many, including both the literary and sports department for she is Assistant Editor of our well known " Vox " and plays defence on our second school basketball team. Favourite Expression — " Bless your little pink heart. " Hobby- -Putting water waving combs in her hair. 1- GRADUATING CLASS " When the head aches with thin ing Tis time to play the fool. " Florence, better known to us as " George " , hails from Hamilton. She started her career at Kingsthorpe but later entered public school. At the Hamilton Collegiate where she successfully passed her Junior Matriculation she was the pride and joy of all her teachers. Still seeking knowledge she packed her trunk and came to O. L. C. The fall of 1925 found her registered as a Senior, George believes in hard work for together with her M.E.L. course she has been work- ing on her A.T.C.M. piano. George is active on the Okticlos executive, compet ' ently filling the office of secretary. Dame Rumour has it that she is go- ing to Toronto University next year and we think her course will be Household Economics. She is taking with her the best wishes of her fellow students. Hobby — Catching mice. Favourite Expression — " Well, sta-nd h-y-y. " that old " I li e to wor , I really do But I li e a little dancing, too. " One of Hamilton ' s most noted events took place on November the sixteenth, 1 907, when Violet Louise made her first appearance in the Maw household and de- cla red then and there that she would help the funny old world through its difficult- ies. Vi passed " the falling down stairs stage " and entered into a more dignified atmos- phere called kindergarten. From there she passed rapidly through Public School and found her way into Hamilton Collegiate to take her first two years High School. In 1924 Vi made her debut as a matricu- lant at O. L. C. using her spare time for her music. This year she returned to take her A.T.C.M. in piano with the best of success. Vi guided the Juniors of ' 25 to the dig- nified position of Seniors and this year has piloted the Okticlos through one of its most successful years. But she has not yet reached the height of her ambition and next year expects to enter " Arts " at Toronto University. Hobby — Collecting poetry. Favourite Expression — " Well, girls, such is life in the wilderness. " i l ' titji Twenty-Eight " She has wit and song and sense, Mirth, sport and eloquence. " The first event to be chronicled in Nel- lie ' s life was a laugh. This happened on May 4th, 1904, and she has kept the habit ever since. She graduated from Public School with honours and then attended the Hamilton Collegiate to work and play her way to Matric. The thrill of boarding school life tempt- ed her, and in the fall of 1924 she entered the portals of O.L.C. She chose the Com- mercial Course and also found time for dramatics. Nellie returned this fall not only to complete her secretarial course and graduate but to hold the highly respected office of President of the Commercial Class. She has worked faithfully as Exchange Editor of our " Vox " and has also done ex- ceedingly well in sports. She made our second school team in basketball and play- ed a sturdy defence. We claim her as cap- tain of our hockey team on which she play- ed a prominent position. Here ' s wishing you all kinds of luck, Nellie. Hobby — Writing and receiving mail from University of Toronto. Favourite Expression — " You poor toot! " " Good sport in all good things. " Spike was first ushered into this world in Selkirk, Manitoba, in 1907. A little while later she moved to Toronto to attend public school. After getting her entrance she cheer- fully wended her way to O.L.C. and began her high-school work. She has enlivened the halls for five years, climbing steadily until she has at last attained the top-most rung of " sweet girl graduate, " and will leave us this year, taking with her M.E.L. to tack onto her name.

" Eighteen long years ago in the city of Toronto one dreary day in March, Mar- garet, or, as we know her best, " Marney, " made her first appearance in this fair world. Once past babyhood " Marney " com- menced her education at Dovercourt Pub- lic School. She worked faithfully here for some years and obtained her High School Entrance. In the fall of 1921 we find her entering Oakwood Collegiate, where she spent four very studious years, gaining the favour and affection of all her teachers (?) Feeling that her education would not be complete without a year or two at O.L.C., she entered Trafalgar ' s halls in the fall of 1925. She entered as a Junior, but after Christmas was admitted to our staid and stately Senior Class. As her occupation at O. L. C.

O.L.C. first saw " Irish " in the fall of 1924, when she came to finish her matric and take dramatics. She became the base- ball manager and has also made a name for herself in tennis. She was one of our best players on the hockey team as a de- fence, and stopped many goals.

Then in her ever-increasing thirst for knowledge Isabel entered the Niagara Falls Collegiate where she studied for three years. Still spurred on by ambition she enrol- led at O.L.C. in 1924 to complete her Jun- ior Matric. Again in 1925 Isabel returned to Trafalgar to take the Household Science course, but not as the ordinary mortal does it, for Isabel joined the ranks of the Juniors and covered the two year course in one year.

After receiving her Junior Matric and partial honour she heard the call of Trafalgar Castle and entered its old grey walls in September, 1925.

To the old girls it brought a little thrill, and to the new girls curious expectation. We often wonder why the days pass so very, very quickly at dear old O.L.C., for it hardly seemed possible that March the twelfth, the long-looked-for day, had arrived. All day long the Seniors were unavailable to everyone. One could see them rush ' ing around the corridors and in the vicinity of Main Hall. The only answer they made to the curious was, " wait and see " or merely a mysterious smile. Tfr ' s was not very satisfactory, but with it one had to be content. By eight-fifteen everyone had assembled in the concert hall, which had been made comfortable and cosy. The dainty rose and gold programmes announced that the Seniors would present " Cinderella " in pantomime. " Cinderella, " the most beautiful of fairy tales, which we all have loved ever since we first heard it as a bed-time story. Finally the curtains parted a little and Nell Cooper, our president, after a few words of welcome to a number of graduates of last year and their ad- visory teacher, outlined the design of our programme. Then she presented flowers to Miss Maxwell and Miss Ball as a token of appreciation from the Senior Class. Nell was presented with a " corsage, " and " Bunny, " whose untiring efforts made it possible to present this pantomime, received a bouquet of spring flowers. At last the lights were dimmed and the curtains were drawn back, revealing Cinderella weeping before the fire. Our audience followed her through tears and laughter to complete happiness, when the prince, having found her in rags, claimed her as his lovely bride. During the court scene the lords and ladies danced the graceful minuet, and later a Russian dance was given for their pleasure by Agnes Rodger. After the play everyone retired for Main Hall, which had been transformed into " Ye Olde Trafalgar Inn. " As our guests stood in the rotunda, laughing and talking, the strains of the " Merry Widow Waltz " were heard, and the Lords and Ladies slowly and with great dignity descended Main stairs. After promenading the length of the hall they sang a pleasing chorus, and accompanied it with several dance steps. Our guests then entered the " Maine Salon " and " Ye Olde Grill Room. " These rooms were very simply decorated in rose and gold with vases of pink and white tulips on all the tables. Between courses the Lords and Ladies again danced and sang " A Cup of Coffee, a Sandwich and You. " After supper we assembled on Main stairs and a new school crest for our middies was presented to Mr. Farewell by our president. Mr. Farewell acknow- ledged it and took this opportunity to tell us of the enjoyment he had received from the evening ' s programme. While standing en masse on the stairs we sang our Class Page Thirty-Four Song. Thus the Senior Stunt came to an end. How we wished that it could have lasted longer, but the memory that it leaves in our hearts. " — is not the real thing But we may keep it always. " (Hljjp Pernor Sinner Friday, April 14! The night of the Senior Dinner! Just what did all the excite- ment and eager anticipation mean? Perhaps little to the minds of the new girls, but the memories of the old girls were busy with thoughts of other Senior Dinners and the certain knowledge that the Senior Dinner seems to herald the separation that comes at the end of every school year — the parting of the Senior Class from its Alma mater and from its school fellows. It is the first of those farewell functions that find their climax in Commencement Day. The dining room on this occasion was even more alluring than usual. The various classes had decorated their tables with their respective colours, attractively but with care that they should in no way detract from the central point of interest, the table of honour, the Senior Class. The Juniors had spared no labour to make it lovely in rose and gold, the Senior colours. Tall silver candlesticks held rose candles and great bowls were filled with sunset roses. The dinner began with just a moment of solemnity, as the whole school stood in silence while the Senior Class, led by Miss Ball, took its place, but after Grace we were seated to " eat, drink and be merry. " Everyone seemed to succeed in all these points, unless perchance the few luckless victims of the toast list which followed, who were slated to regale us with their wit and eloquence. Looking about the dining room, one could not but note the occasional furrowed brow and preoccupied expression. Mr. Farewell, as toastmaster, rose to propose the toast to the King. This was followed by a toast to Our Country, proposed by Jeanne Knapman and responded to by Helen Musgrove. Both speakers made us feel anew the privilege it is to be a Canadian, and sent a thrill of loyalty through our hearts as they read fresh meaning into the name of our beloved Dominion. To Anna Speers fell the honour of proposing the toast to our Alma Mater, a toast which everyone loves, and she did it with grace and sincerity. Vi Maw, in response, spoke of the affection which every daughter of O.L.C. bears for the heart of Trafalgar, the seat of her school spirit. Dorothy Lounsbury tactfully proposed a difficult toast to the Faculty. The gist of her remarks was that although now one might be blinded by circumstances to he real value of the Staff, later we would fully appreciate their worth. Miss Maxwell spoke on behalf of the Faculty in that gracious and significant manner which is peculiarly her own, and for the time being at least, caused us to believe that members of the Faculty were truly human. Virginia Frid, the Junior president, asked us to drink with her in honour of the Seniors, reminding us all of the place they had filled in the school, and impressing the Juniors with the standard which had been set before them as the measure of their achievement next year. The Junior Class then rose in a body to sing their Farewell Song, that really beautiful and impressive bit of music, to the Seniors. Nell Cooper replied with dignity for her fellow Seniors and took the occasion to thank each class for the contribution it had made to the Seniors ' happiness and success throughout the year. The appreciation of the Seniors was further expressed by Adelie McLennan in Pngr Thirtv Fii proposing the toast to the Other Classes. She stressed particularly the feeling of unity that had grown up among them. Mary Roger, in replying for the Juniors made us feel that they would truly miss the Seniors but nevertheless were ready and enthusiastic to assume their new responsibilities. Marion Henderson, the Sophomore president, modestly stated that any virtue her class might have achieved, had come merely because they had endeavoured all year to live up to the Sophomore reputation. Marion Mc- Eachern convinced us that the Freshmen had played no small part and Fern Speers, speaking for the Elementaries, reminded us that in their own words — " Well be Seniors yet, you know. " Eleanor Moore proposed the toast to " Student Organizations " and caused us all to realise how empty the school would be without our various activities. Gratia Hodge on behalf of the Athletic Association gave credit for the success of the year to the leadership of Mrs. Forman and Miss Burns and to the enthusiasm of the student body. The president of the S.C.M., Kathleen Jenkins, in her reply stated that while the S.C.M. never attains its ideal, it seeks to bring greater value to every phase of school life. Audrey Cameron felt no hesitation in asserting that the Honour Club had had a most happy year and that all its success was due to the loyalty of the girls themselves. % The last, but by no means the least toast of the evening, that to Our School Press was proposed by Elizabeth Enlow. Her assertion that our school magazine was beloved by all found a ready response in every mind. Betty Gunnison, the editor, in replying gave an interesting summary of what had been done in producing the Christ- mas Vox and stated that although the staff was inexperienced, they hoped to present a Year Book of which the school might not be ashamed. A very happy evening came to an end with the clasping of hands and the singing of Auld Lang Syne. If you had walked down Main Hall about 3.30 on Tuesday afternoon, April 20, you would have noticed the reception room. It had been transformed by flowers, rugs and cushions, and a cheery fire added a homelike touch. Something was hap- pening — why yes — the Senior Tea. Miss Ball and the president, Nell Cooper, received the guests. When everyone was comfortably seated, a short programme was given consisting of a piano solo by Miss Kisbey, a reading by Evelyn Trick, and a vocal solo by Audrey Cameron. Miss Maxwell then spoke to the Seniors on " Character. " In closing her delight- ful talk she read a short passage from Drinkwater ' s immortal play " Abraham Lincoln. " Miss Ball presided at the tea table and was assisted by the Executive. To the Seniors this was another afternoon that will always remain fresh in their memories rnior (Elans JJropljprg, ' 2fi A hitter stormy winter night and a wind gone mad with loneliness. The icy branches of the trees dashed their wild tune on the window pane while the dark curtains shifted to and fro as if they perhaps feared the dreadful night as I, too, who found myself so often taking an uneasy peek over my shoulder. I stirred up the deeping fire and glanced about me. Books, pictures, letters, in a hopeless mess on the big Persian rug. For a whole evening I had been reminiscing on my life of twenty years back, of O.L.C., and of the class I loved, the class of twenty-six with which I graduated. For a whole evening I had been wishing hard to see them all again, wondering what they were doing, wishing - I half closed my eyes until the books and letters were but a confused jumble of nothing on a funny queer rug of blues — reds — browns — What a drowsy person I was becoming — What a — reds — blues — browns — queer rug — Where was I? I blinked my eyes and pinched myself, but all I could see every- where, anywhere, was white fluffy clouds and a blue, blue sky. There I was sitting cross legged on a Persian rug, a magic carpet indeed, sailing through the skies — for where? Where? We were nearing earth. What did I hear, breaking the silence? " Fie on you! Fie on you! " I laughed — and remembered a certain person of O.L.C. The rug landed in the middle of a huge field of cut hay. I scrambled off, coming to the conclusion that by some stroke of genius, I was invisible, for no one paid the .-lightest attention to me, important as I felt myself to be. " Fie on you! " There she was, a sturdy woman of forty, flinging hay on a hay wagon and shouting lustily at five or six energetic young swains who quite frequently addressed her as " Ma " and most of the time laughed heartily at nothing at all. A farm house in the rear told the story, completely. Florence Lloyd herself, with the usual mirth registered on every square inch of her countenance. So I was to behold my class mates once again. I hopped back on the carpet thrilled with the joy of expectation. And then, the roar of a big city, the giddy heights of great buildings, millions of people ever shifting, ever dodging destruction upon the wide paved streets. Clanging doors, the dizzy motion of an elevator, the final scramble at the twenty- fourth story, and I was standing outside a door upon the glass surface of which was printed in large white letters: " The Roberta Beauty Parlours. Walk in. " I walked in and found myself in a crowded waiting room. I stood staring, bewildered at the rows and rows of little white doors in the formation like the spokes of a wheel with the waiting room as centre. Indeed, I could not have felt dizzier if I had truly been balancing on the hub of a dazzling, whirling wheel. As I stood there, stupidly, a little business-like woman rushed in, starched, pressed and pleated. She smiled dashingly at all the customers. Isabel Roberts, as I live! I did not spend time there, for when Madame Roberta rang a hell, every little door in the place opened and there was such a rapid change of customers that I feared for my safety and left. Good for Isabel! The magic carpet carried me to another part of the same city, I entered the front door of a plain red brick house and gasped with surprise. That house was one confusing mob of little boys, rolling, tumbling, shouting, screaming, sliding down the bannisters and playing leap frog in the hallways. I almost expected to see Peter Pan fly in and lead them all away, but no, it was not Peter Pan. A sweet faced little lady in black came trotting in, and, as if by magic the noise had ceased. " Come to lunch my dears, and do be careful of the clean tabic cloth. " It was, of all people, Mistress Mary Brown, who, as it seems, was keeping a small school for small boys. My last glimpse was that of a dignified little dame ushering a mob of happy youngsters into their noonday meal. As I left the door of Mistress Mary ' s School, I stepped into an atmosphere strangely distrubed with the voice of someone singing. Up the street three doors a small group had gathered to listen to a woman soprano garbed in the remains of a light brown satin coat. From door to door she went, singing songs and selling music. Not really! Eleanore Moore! Poor dear girl, to come to this! Selling music from house to house! I wiped away a tear as I meditated upon it all. And then, once again, I was sailing far away. London, England! How perfectly thrilling! I landed on the roof of a large hotel overlooking a crowded street below. By dint of exploring I found my way down to the main salon where dinner music, the clash of dishes and the buzz of numan voices blended to make that plutocratic atmosphere found in the dining rooms of nearly all large hotels. One table particularly arrested my attention. At it were seated four well-dressed distinguished-looking ladies eagerly talking together and paying no more attention to the rest of the world than as if it never existed. One of the ladies wore a tailored suit of blue and a pair of black-rimmed spectacles which lent an air of great seriousness to every word she uttered. I puzzled over her for a few odd minutes and then I had guessed. Audrey Cameron, of course, but what was she doing in London? At her right, surely it was Ann Callahan, a pleasing and intelligent-appearing woman with evidently a nice sense of humour for she seemed quite amused on several occasions when Audrey proceeded to hold the conversation quite firmly upon legislative matters and politics. So that was it. Audrey had gone in for politics and evidently become quite a distinguished person, while Ann it appears was a well known Doctor in one of London ' s largest hospitals. All this I gathered from their intense conversation. The lady to the left of Audrey was most charming indeed and dressed in the height of fashion. She smiled so brilliantly from under her large hat that she gave herself away immediately. " Oh yes! " she said, " Sir James told me that of all your books, Dottie, the " Midsummer Night ' s Dream " was the dainties; or was it the " Tale of Two Cities? ' With all the excitement of life with a man such as Sir James I never can remember details, but I ' m sure both of them are very good. " The lady addressed as Dottie tilted her chin at a haughty angle and replied: " Georgia my dear, I have never written books of such titles. I greatly fear you are confusing me with some cheap dime novelist. I have just finished a fine book on the " Rise and Fall of the Spider. " Do tell Sir James about it for me. He always does enjoy my books. " Dorothy Lounsbury, a writer, and Georgia Allan, great Lady So-and-So. I gazed upon the four of them as they talked together, and almost I laughed for joy when Audrey, our celebrated politician, ordered the waiter to kindly hurry with the salad, that she didn ' t have a whole night to spend there. It was here I left them. And then I found myself in a quiet sunny little town in the province of Quebec. There was a garden, a lovely garden, flowers, and very green grass with three little children playing there. I sat in the swing under the shady trees to watch them. By and by a pretty little woman came running out, excitement and happi- ness in every line of her face. She carried a letter in one hand, and was making a wild dash for the little front gate. A kindly faced man stood there and when the three youngsters saw him there was one tremendous warlike cry that must have nearly destroyed their vocal organs. Evidently it was Daddy. Poor man! He Page Thirty-Eight was almost swamped hy the flurry of pink and white skirts. " Yes! " he said, " She will be here in five minutes, Agnes. " Not Agnes Rodger! There she was, manag- ing one of the happiest homes in all Quebec, I ' m sure. And who was coming to town but the much talked of lady minister — Nell Martin, who had left her big church in New York to spend a week end with Agnes. Ah! There she was, just coming in the gate, a quaint picture dressed in black, who held the attention of everyone about her. Oh! What there was in the world. I had never imagined for a minute that Nell would spend her life in a pulpit. The magic carpet and I then travelled to the border of a little lake and came to a stop in the midst of a group of tents. There was a loud whistle, and forty young girls clad in bathing suits stood upon the beach. " I want to see you all take a swan dive today, and be sure you don ' t break your necks. Now watch me. " The speaker clim bed to the highest diving board, poised for one second, and then cut the air with an indeed graceful dive. She did look familiar. As the girls began theit diving I watched her closely instructing this and that one as to the correct manner of attacking the so-called swan dive. What did they call her? Miss Knapman. Of course, Jeanne Knapman, nine Main, O.L.C., ' 26, now an instructor at a girls ' camp I walked about the camp for an hour and finally came upon eight lovely horses, .addled and ready for riding. Presently a tall trim person appeared in a smart riding habit followed by seven trembling girls in similar habit. " I know, " she sa ' d, " that for most of you this is but the fourth lesson, but I think " (stamping her foot in anger at one poor animal who was not behaving himself) " I think we will try some cantering to-day. " There were groans of dismay from all directions as each girl struggled into the saddle. " Grace, turn your toes in. Ethel, shorten these stirrups. Muriel, don ' t choke the poor animal. Dorothy, if you don ' t keep your teeth from chattering you ' ll lose them all. Are you all ready? " They trotted olF. Kathleen Jenkins, of all people in the world, was teaching horse-back riding. I hadn ' t realized, back at O.L.C., that Kathleen was so keenly attached to horses. At the next stop the carpet dumped me into a pool of oil outside a big dirty- gasoline service station. Three oil streaked women in overalls scrambled busily from one can of grease to another. I picked my way in and was quite surprised to sec a fourth woman lying flat on her back underneath the remains of a once respectable tin Lizzie, whistling and singing alternately. She sat up to examine some small piece of mechanism and I recognized, under all the oil and grease, Rhoda Frid. And the others, of all people, were — Marney Mossop and — Mary Feasby and — who was the fourth? She was now amusing herself by striking two empty tin cans together producing a loud cheerful noise for all to hear. Very musical, she was! Ii couldn ' t be, possibly, Inez Savage! Why oh why was she working in a garage when she might have been a wonder of the twentieth century? Oh! That dreadful noise! I fled with my hands over my ears. The magic carpet I ' m sure covered the next thousand miles in two minutes. Wind blown, I landed on the roof of a flying taxi. We were dodging wildly through a crowded street in Philadelphia, and thanks to our brakes, we managed to come out alive, stopping outside the gates 01 the " S.W.A.K. Tea Rooms. " The Taxi driver — good grief! — it was a woman. Under her horn-rimmed goggles I saw the bright sharp eyes of Evelyn Trick. My mouth, which I had left epen, almost screamed the name " Tricky! " but I refrained and accompanied the four young men from the taxi into the " S.W.A.K. Tea Rooms. " Soft lights, dainty china on snowy white table cloths, the odour of roses — and the laughter of many people. Curiously Hitffv Thirty X tin enough the tea room was practically full of young men, a very few of whom had young ladies with them. I gathered from their faces and conversation that most of them were university students. The new comers waved gayly at a bright little woman who came trotting in to welcome them. Her eyes simply sparkled, and she laughed so continually and so joyfully that everyone laughed with her. No won ' der the tea rooms were crowded, — with young men. It was Helen Musgrove, the proud matron of the " S.W.A.K. Tea Rooms. " Just then it was that a smartly dressed woman in sport suit stepped in, a look of great importance on her face. Helen Sutcliffe herself. She and Madame Mus- grove talked together strenuously for a few moments then Miss Sutcliffe withdrew. Madame turned to talk to some of her customers. " That ' " she said, " is the secretary of this famous woman athlete who is running at the Fields this afternoon. She is nearly crazy with the number of invitations she has received for this popular athlete, who, by the way, I used to go to school with. " Madame Musgrove literally sparkled under the keen interest which was showered upon her after this last remark. As for me, I was half way to the Philadelphia Fields by this time. Which of my class-mates had become so famous? Early in the afternoon the program began. The grandstands were crowded to the last seat. As the famous women ' s race commenced every single person in the place stood up and shouted — " Come on, Ikey! Let ' s see you! " A little short woman with bobbed curly hair carelessly waved a hand at the grandstands and there was a murmur of excitement. Irene Edmonds herself! What a thrill it gave one to see her dash around that track again and yet again, ever keeping a steady pace. The last round and everyone cheered as she passed each competitor in turn. Third, second — first — " Ikey wins! " I fell asleep on the Persian carpet as we left Philadelphia, and woke up to find myself within the grounds of O.L.C. I strolled here and there, suddenly coming upon a group of students in gym outfit and a tall striking woman in a smart tunic. They had just completed a gym class in the athletic field and were walking slowly across the grounds to the college. I noticed that there was rather a dispute among the students as to who should walk beside the tall woman in the tunic. In fact, they all seemed to watch her every move with adoring eyes, and when one spoke of her to another as " adorable Miss McClennan " I opened my eyes with amazement — then laughed. Of course, good old Spike. So she was back again stealing hearts in O.L.C. I spent the night in the College for I could not drag myself away. My surprise was genuine at finding Mabel Elliott strutting about on night watch. She creaked up and down the old stairs armed with a huge club and a big revolver. Evidently life was more dangerous in O.L.C. than when I was there. However, morning came and being still alive, I sailed away into the clouds again. How cold it was growing. My teeth were chattering at a dreadful rate, and Fm sure I could have frozen to an icicle in another minute had I not suddenly found at my disposal a big white fur coat and woolly cap and gauntlets. Alaska it was! The magic carpet came to a halt in one of the roadways of a little mining town. It was growing dark and I noticed that most of the inhabitants of the town were strolling towards the cheap little theatre to the right of the town saloon. I wandered in with them and was nearly deafened completely by the amount of loud noise, harsh laughter and rough talking. The moving pictures began and we all watched with the usual clapping and loud laughter. Then the town ' s enter- tainers came out, a vivacious looking woman wearing a full short red skirt, a man ' s shirt waist, and a tarn o ' shanter. Her face indeed was elastic. At least twenty-five expressions, to put it mildly, danced, jerked and flitted thereupon per minute. At one particular expression wherein one saw a shining row of white teeth, two large blue eyes and two plump red cheeks all screwed up into one, I jumped to my feet and stood staring. Bunny Hodge — ! Bunny Hodge, up there on the platform. It was incredible. After the performance I learned that Bunny was the leading spirit in the town. In anything from Sunday School for the kids to gold-rushing for the men and women she was the gay and capable leader. Three cheers for Bunny! And then I landed on the north pole and sat thereupon watching the white bears strolling over the ice cakes. Presently an aeroplane hove in view and came to earth not a yard from me. A woman stepped out, marched up to the pole, and decorated it with some streamers of blue and blue ribbon, until truly I would have thought I was again at O.L.C. beholding the notorious May pole on a certain great day in May — only — the weather was not so deceiving. I climbed back in the aeroplane and travelled a short distance with her. " There, " she said to herself, " No one can tell me that a woman can ' t reach the North Pole if she wants to. " The lady of the venturesome spirit was none other than Anna Speers, travelling alone into the cold regions of the Great North. What would the world come to! Tremendously glad was I that the last stop was in a warmer climate. Yea, verily, it was Monte Carlo, at night. I found myself in the box seat of a great opera house. The place was packed with men and women in evening dress and what with the sparkle of jewels, the charged atmosphere, and the stirring overture which the large orchestra was playing, I could hardly surpass a wild desire to scream with excitement. Beside me in the box was a well dressed couple of evidently great wealth. The lady grabbed the arm of her husband as the curtain rose. " Oh! " she cried, " I cannot wait to see her! " The opera proceeded, and when at the end the leading lady arrayed gorgeously in the most glorious costume brought the great opera to a thrilling close, my lady in the box raised a pair of sparkling eyes to her husband and said, " Oh! Oh! I didn ' t think Lizzie could be so wonderful! " So this was Nell Cooper, the Senior President of our year, who had come with her wealthy husband to see her old room-mate, Elizabeth Enlow, perform at the Monte Carlo Opera. The magic carpet carried me back into the white fluffy clouds and the blue, blue sky. Suddenly there was a tremendous collision and I began to fall — fall — fall — . We had bumped into a rainbow and I was sliding down the pathway of colors into — I woke up and found myself on the floor. What a glorious dream! Do dreams come true? I wonder. — V. Maw. Page Forty-Thr Harralaumite i ' unfiag Commencement week to all of us is a series of beautiful pictures on which, afterwards, we reminisce with sadly happy hearts. One of the most vivid of these pictures is that which has its origin on the last Sunday evening before we leave the j-chool. We see a crowded church, flowers everywhere, all people standing, and then, girls in cap and gown making their way slowly, with bowed heads, up the aisle of the church. It is the graduates of twenty-six, and before them, daintily dressed, in white, the Junior President of the year, leads in to . cut the white ribbons which guard the senior pews. It is a lovely picture, and lingers in our minds as one of the sweetest things of Commencement. This year Dr. Barber, of Victoria College, Toronto, was the speaker, and it was with keen interest we listened to what he had to tell us. In all Dr. Barber ' s talk, perhaps the point that more surely struck home than anything else was the fact that what we are, what we do, eventually stamps us with its standards. It is a truth and we cannot dodge it. In our faces we carry the signs of the life we live. Thus, heredity and environment play a very large part in marking us, for these things do greatly effect the life we live. To us who have lived in the dear old College for a number of years comes that astounding realization that we carry away with us into all standards of the world the standards of the school, impressed, as it were, upon us. And so it will be throughout life. Always we will be carrying the marks of our environments, just as also we carry some of the traits of our fore- lathers. These things are inevitable. Looking at it from the more active point of view we find that we ourselves have most to do with the life we show in our face. We will grow to be according to the things and the people we admire and love. Thus, m those who respect the glorious teachings and the great life of Jesus Christ, will eventually grow the ideals of that life. And here, above all things, if we would live to the absolute height of our lives as Jesus did, we must learn the value of ser- vice. The old original meaning of the word " halo " leads to the meaning of the word service. Could we but wear a halo of service, living to our utmost being for the true happiness of others! The graduating class stood to receive the final message which found its way deep into every heart. And then it was over. The congregation waited in the church as the graduates filed out. Slowly they left the church door for the last time, and slowly they walked home together. The rest of the school had arrived at the college in advance, and forming a row on either side of the dear old hall, they sang the farewell hymn as the Seniors marched in. On one who has seen and felt this Baccalaureate Sunday Service a deep impress has been made which cannot wear away. Page Forty-Four (Elaflo lag Class Day is an occasion for both tears and laughter, it is one of the happiest ,15 well as one of the saddest days of the year — girls who are laughing merrily one moment, weep dejectedly the next, and then smile happily through their tears. On this particular class day we were at first dismayed to see the rain falling in torrents, but the Juniors philosophically donned slickers, and set out to gather the white lilacs, and spirea, for the daisy chain, because there was not a daisy to be found. The first event of the day took place in the afternoon, when the Seniors, looking very tall and stately, came slowly into the concert hall, bearing the daisy-chain on their shoulders. Virginia Frid, president of the Junior Class, read each Senior ' s biography in turn, then Betty Gunnison, vice-president, cut the chain and allowed that Senior to take her place on the platform, carrying a section of the daisy-chain w:th her, to keep as a remembrance. When all the biographies had been read the Seniors sang their class song with deep feeling; the Juniors then responded with their song, and the Senior President, Nell Cooper, presented the gifts of the class. The gift to the school, chosen for its utility as well as beauty, was a drinking-fountain to be installed in the hall, near the class rooms. Mr. Farewell, in thanking the Seniors, said that he was delighted with their parting gift, and that the classes of the following years would be reminded of the Senior Class of ' 26, a hundred times a day. Nell then presented Miss Maxwell with a lovely corsage of American Beauty Roses, and Miss Maxwell expressed her appreciation in a few, well-chosen words. Then Miss Ball was presented with a beautiful leather purse, containing many inner pockets, such as delight the heart of a traveller. Miss Ball spoke very sincerely of how dear her Senior Class had always been to her. and thanked them very cordially. Following these presentations Violet Maw read the Senior Class Prophecy, which displayed a great deal of imagination and wit, and called forth continual bursts of merriment. The Juniors then sang their farewell song to the Seniors. This was followed by the Valedictory address given by Dorothy Lounsbury. This part of the programme was brought to a close by the singing of our dearly loved College Song. At six-thirty the Seniors, in evening dress this time, assembled in the artistic rotunda outside Miss Ball ' s studio. They were received by the Junior president and ushered into the banquet hall, where they partook of a delightful repast, served by very neat maids in uniform. The dinner was cooked and served by the Juniors of rhe Household Science de partment, and did great credit to the culinary art, which ihey have been cultivating all year. This was one of the jolliest — certainly noisiest — events of the day, and many original songs were gaily rendered. About eight o ' clock the whole school assembled again, this time in the gym., hecause it was still too wet to venture outdoors. The Seniors made a hasty and very undignified entrance, and formed a circle around the improvised bon-fire, which looked iust like the real thing, except that there was no smoke. Each Senior chanted or sang a verse about the subject, which had been the bete noire of her year, and then with much feeling strode up and flung it into the fire. We sang our class songs ;igain after this, but there was no sadness in them this time, and we ended our wonderful day with a delightful dansante. I ' ngr Forty- Alutnnar lag It has often been said " that old friends are the best of friends, " and truly this saying comes true on Alumnae Day when the graduates of many years return to do honour to their Alma Mater and to express to the Graduating Class something of the interest which they feel in them. The graduating Class, who were the guests of honour, went timidly into the beautifully decorated dining-room but once assembled they immediately felt the sense of fellowship which is so much a part of the Alumnae spirit, and all trace of fright disappeared from their minds. Miss Powell, President of the Council, was a very charming and capable Toast- Mistress, and after the toast to the King, proposed by Miss Powell, was drunk, Miss Maxwell was called upon to extend a welcome to those present. She very graciously welcomed the members of the Alumnae, some of whom we see often, but others are rery seldom guests of the College, making each person feel that they had indeed come home. Miss Leila Hunter, in calling upon the guests to drink to " Our Country, " spoke ' f the change from national to international patriotic feeling in the minds of all Can- adians. She also told of the change of some lines in the poems of Pauline Johnston and Kipling, which has been brought about by the growth of a great international democracy. While we still love our country we are now able to see the worth of it her countries and have thus made a great stride in civilization. Mr. Farewell, in replying, spoke of the important place which newspapers should hold in the life of • very modern girl, as it is only through knowledge of current history that we can necome worth while world citizens. The toast to " Our Alma Mater " was graciously proposed by Mrs. Cooke, who attended the school a great many years ago, and has since had two daughters at the school, which speaks well for love of the Alma Mater. She spoke chiefly of her asso- ciations with Dr. and Mrs. Hare and what they had done for the school, and succeeded in bringing their vivid personalities clearly before us. Mrs. Norman Smith, in her response, spoke of how, through our Alma Mater, we are brought more closely in touch with girls of other provinces and are brought to a better understanding of Canada ' s problems. Miss Rhoda Howe, in proposing a toast to the graduating class, spoke of her own recent graduation and told us some of the problems which we would face in the re- adjustment of our lives after Commencement. We all knew Miss Howe so well that ve really felt it was a personal talk to each one of us. Miss Cooper, the class presi- dent, thanked the Alumnae for their kindness to the Class, and informed them of our intention of uniting with some Alumnae Association. " Our Alumnae Association " was charmingly proposed by Mrs. Atkinson. She spoke of the work of the Alumnae and graciously invited each one of us to become a member of some chapter as soon as possible. In her response, Mrs. Richardson laid great stress on the tennis courts for which we have been striving all year, and which will soon materialize, it made our spirits glow to feel that the Alumnae were so interested in this matter which is of such importance to us. The members of the Alumnae and their guests were then invited to the drawing room for a short musicale. A very enjoyable programme was given by various mem- bers. Page Forty-Six Page Forty-Sewn Mr. Farewell then made a fine address, closing with a very few inspiring words to the Graduating Class. As the last words of their principal they will cherish them dearly in their hearts. Following this came the awarding of the medals and scholarships. Whenever possible this pleasing task was performed by the donor, otherwise it was done very graciously by Mr. Hamilton. After these ceremonies Mr. Farewell introduced Rev. J. Harold Young, of St. Paul ' s United Church, Toronto, who made the Commencement Address. He spoke very vigorously, fairly sweeping us along with him, so eager was he to send his mes- sage home. Each one carried away a fragment of his words to ponder and weave into her ideals. The day closed in song, though in many cases tearful. The Juniors sang their Class Song, the Senior Song came next. Then the Juniors, with hearts overflowing, sang the farewell song to the Seniors. After this we all joined in our College Song, which we were singing for the last time as the student body of 1926. It was not easy, many could not finish, but the rest bravely carried on to the end. Thus Commencement Day came to a close as the daughters of Trafalgar paid their last tribute of the year to their Alma Mater. . Jffarnueirn Aliform I should like to thank the Undergraduate Body — Elementaries, Freshmen, Soph ' omores, and Juniors — for your loyal support throughout the year. The things you did which you ought not to have done, and the things you did not which you might have done, we are ready to forget. We shall continue to remember however, your best deeds, your constant good will, the splendid resolutions you made, the failure for the moment and then your new resolves and forward march — we shall remember these. Our best wishes go with you for a happy and joyous holiday. We look for your return in September to begin the very best year that O.L.C. has yet enjoyed. In closing I should like to address myself briefly to the members of the Graduating Class: For one and two years, and in some cases three or four and even five years, you have been students at O.L.C. It is but natural that many of you and indeed all of you have become greatly attached to the old school. It is equally natural that those of us who remain and who carry on from year to year the work of the College have become as strongly attached to you. Commencement Day is always an occasion for both sorrow and joy — sorrow be ' cause of the temporary breaking up of so many happy and helpful associations, and joy in the thought of your commencing your real life work, which after all is the work that counts. There is also the further joy at this hour as we recall the splendid way in which you have upheld and maintained the honor of the Senior Class as well as the tra ' ditions and standards of the long line of Senior classes that have preceded you. Page Forty-Eiglii Your officers have always been sympathetic and wise in leadership; you have been constant in your good- will; you have ever manifested the spirit and practice of co ' operation; you have readily responded to suggestions and appeals that have been made to you; and as you lay down your work in the school and take up the larger and greater work of life you carry with you individually and as a class our hincerest good wishes for the fullest realisation of your dreams and hopes. The world awaits you with its opportunities and temptations, its challenge and tests and tasks. Your life in reality is just beginning. It is for you to CHOOSE and DARE and DO. One of the King ' s royal orders is known as the " Companion of Honor. " In- scribed on its medal are these words, " In action faithful, in honor clear. 11 Carry with you the spirit of this motto. Incorporate it with the principles of the Honor Club of which you have been members here. Make that membership perpetual. Be conv panions of honor always. In closing let me say that the spirit of your Alma Mater will ever hover about you to protect and comfort you, to inspire and help you. We shall be sorry when you are sorry; we shall be glad when you are glad; we shall rejoice in your success always. Now and then you will visit and revisit us. The College is yours. Its doors are ever open wide, and you shall always receive a ready and a loving welcome. Meanwhile wherever you may be and whatever you may do, " be strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. " " And may the God of peace and love be with you. " gtyttopma of (Hommtmtmmt ikbbvt a bg 3Seu. 3(- iSjaroli $ omtg After extending congratulations to the Graduating Class, Mr. Young turned to discuss how those who had had the advantages of such an institituon as the Ontario Ladies 1 College could bring their personalities to bear on the enrichment of the world. The great peril of an education is that it may make those who have had it think only of age. For anyone to seek to do this is to be untrue to the real ideals of education and of the colleges which make it possible. The one end of education is an enlarged service, and the problem before each fresh graduate is to use that which has been gained for the larger welfare of the world. There are three ways in which this is particularly needed and possible. In the first place, each must seek to develop the latent resources within her the very highest possible point. Our best gift to the world is a fully rounded, fully developed personality, rich in character and ability. We can do no better thing than to be like Mark Hopkins: " Mark Hopkins sat on one end of a log, And a farm-boy sat on the other; Mark Hopkins came as a pedagogue And taught as an elder brother. I don ' t care what Mark Hopkins taught, If his Latin was small and his Greek was naught, For the farmer ' s boy he thought, thought he, All through lecture time and quiz, — ' The kind of a man I mean to be Is the kind of a man Mark Hopkins is. 1 " if The world needs men and women who have brought out every latent power within themselves, and have developed a rich, strong, mature personality and character. In the second place, each must see to it that her personality is enlarged until it takes in the interests of others. The true ideal of life is to so identify one ' s self with the needs of mankind that one is joined to the mainland of humanity, and has learned to say in the presence of needy, ignorant men and women — " This is not your burden, but ours as well. " The highest compliment that can be paid a person is to .say that she is not all here, in the sense that wherever men and women are in ignor ' ance or under oppression the lot is not theirs alone, but ours also, that wherever there are stripes on human backs or burdens on human shoulders we are bearing them too in sympathy and interest. To have learned to say not " I " and " your " , but " we " and " our " is to have taken the second step in the bringing of the developed resources of our lives to bear on the enrichment of the world. In the third place, there waits for us the opportunity for the enlistment of our powers in some one or many of the great causes which in every generation are seeking the goal of a larger and finer life for mankind. It is in the wholehearted abandon ' ment of self to such crusades that men and women through all the years have found real significance in the task of living. Wherever we may go such open doors will await us, and life will have for us no greater joy than to have mattered in some real way in the winning of some phase of the agcdong battle of righteousness among men. Well may we learn such a prayer as that of Carl Sandburg: " Lay me on an anvil, O God : Beat me and hammer me into a steel spike: Drive me into the girders that hold a skyscraper together; Take red ' hot rivets and fasten me into the central girders: Let me be the great nail holding a skyscraper through blue nights into white stars. " To have learned to be as a nail holding the skyscraper of mankind ' s finer living, •which stone by stone is rising all about us, through blue nights up to the stars of God, is to have found the truest way of making our enriched personalities to count for something worthy in the living of our world. Paaa Fifty To-day is a room With windows upon one side And upon the other A door — ■ Through the windows we may look But cannot pass; Through the door we must pass But cannot look, And there are no windows Upon that side. This is the day we have eagerly anticipated since our first year at O.L.C. — the Jay when we should take our places, as a graduating class, with all the ceremony and honour that that term implies. But as the time drew near we began to realize the pain that accompanies that joy; for although we may look back through the windows, to our days at O.L.C, we may never return to play an active part in the school-life we have known and loved. We envy the undergraduates for they are privileged to ?njoy other years of comradeship at dear O.L.C. And now, as we stand in this room of to-day, we gaze regretfully on the happy scenes we see from the windows, for our whole Senior year lies in a panorama before us. Our first glimpse is of long sunny days, where we have worked and played together, and then we perceive the days, when the sun did not shine. But we are glad of those rainy days, for they drew us closer to our friends, and no Senior year would be complete without them. We see our heritage of responsibilities and priv- ileges, which we have loved, and tried to uphold; we see where we have failed, and then, tried harder. We see the merry groups in the parties and stunts of the year, and finally, the kind faces of Mr. Farewell, Miss Maxwell and Miss Ball. We are grateful for the part they, and the other members of the faculty, have played in all mr activities, for their help in our difficulties, and their pleasure in our good fortune And as we look at all these things, we think of you Juniors, who, next year, will take our place. We know that you will maintain the traditions of the Senior Class, and that you in your turn, will assume our responsibilities and bear them proudly. Although you may make mistakes, as we have done, we are sure you will meet the same consideration, and our sincerest wish is, that when you stand in this room, as we are standing now, you may have as delightful a view of your Senior year as we have of ours. We also think of the younger classes, and are grateful tor the strong support you have given us throughout the year. But we have tarried at the windows long enough, and must turn our faces oward the door. We feel that if only there were windows upon this side, it would not be so hard for us to go through the door into the broader world which lies beyond. Some of us are eager to explore this new world, while others are timid and afraid; but no matter how far we may wander from our Alma Mater, we will keep her memory green and her spirit glowing in our hearts. We have loved her always, but now that we must part from her we realize how much she has done for us, and what a large place she fills in our lives. When we have passed through the door we shall close it softly behind us, and always regard this room of to-day as a shrine, endeared and ennobled by happy memories and hopeful dreams, Page Fifty-One (£nmnipnrrmpnt lag iJrogrammr WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16th, 1926, 10.30 a.m. Haydn - Allegro vivace (from quartette in B flat) Wieniawshi — (a) Romance (from concerto in D.

" Our energetic Junior President has deserted the academic field to delve into the mysteries of feeding the inner man as well as indulging in music. She has safely steered the Junior ' s ship through a very successful year. ELIZABETH HALE GUNNISON " She respects every man ' s opinion, out acts on her own. " Betty " Hales " from Merchantville, New Jersey, and first began to have her own opinion in August, 1908. She went to public school in Millford, New Hampshire, but later mended her ways and came to Malvern Collegiate, Toronto. Growing tired of this life she came to O.L.C. last year and wrote most of her Junior Matric. This year she is finishing her Junior and taking part of her Senior. LUCIE ASHBOURNE " Be firm! One constant element in luck Is genuine, solid, old Teutonic pluck. " Newfoundland claims Lucie as its own, but she came to Toronto for her readin ' ' n writin ' ' n rith- metic. Lucie came to O.L.C. as a Soph, in 1923, and this year she is finishing her Junior Matriculation and hopes to enter Vic. next year. KATHERINE STONE " The mildest manners and the gentlest heart. " Kay came to O.L.C. in September and registered from Cobourg, but now we find that she was born in the big city, Toronto, 1908. Kay is studying Household Science and we venture to prophecy that she will make an excellent home-maker. JEAN BAIN " Work like a man But don ' t be worked to death. " Cache Bay noted the event in 1910. Cache Bay also watched her grow till she had to look about for a seat of advanced learning. Jean spent two years at Sturgeon Falls High School before coming to O.L.C. as a Commercial. PHYLLYS BAKER " Bid me discourse, I will enchant thine ear. " Phyllis first grasped a rattle in Toronto in 1908. When Phyllis said good-bye to public school forever she entered Malvern Collegiate and then O.L.C. Christ- mas, 1924, with hopes of a partial Matric. This year Phyllis is finishing her Matric. Page fifty-Eight DOT BEATTIE " She came in like a bimb But we think she has changed. " Dot startled the world in Toronto in 1910, and as the effect suited her she has continued to keep us amused. Dot is working at her Matriculation and A.T.C.M. Piano, but she manages to find time to enjoy herself. GWENDOLYN BOND " All studies here I solemnly defy. " Gwen is a daughter of the Prairie, having been born in Winnipeg in 1911. In 1924 she came " East " and settled at O.L.C. In 1925 she again made the trip down and we see her daily with the Juniors. Gwen is working at her Matriculation this year. AUDREY BRADLEY " Living friendly, feeling friendly. " Audrey came upon the world at Toronto in 1911. O.L.C. greeted her in September, 1924, and she was one of the Jolly Sophs.

Back again to U.C.I, for three years and then O.L.C. in ' 26 for Junior Household Science. DOROTHY KERNS " Give thy thoughts no tongue. " Dot ' s first gurgle of merriment was heard in Bur- lington in 1908. There she made her way through Public School and two years of High School, but 1925 found her at the portals of O.L.C. with the burn- ing desire to matriculate. IRENE KETCHESON " Valiant, modest and retiring Not assuming, yet aspiring. " Irene ' s first smiles were seen in Belleville in 1908.

" Ev. was born in Ancaster, 1907, and attended the Little Red School House, graduating thence with her Entrance.

Next year she expects to stay at home and practice her culinary art. MARION MANNING Broad in mind, small in stature, Bad at times, but good oy nature. " ' Last year we thought " Mannie " had left us forever, when she graduated in Household Science; but, still seeking for knowledge she returned to O.L.C. this year to take her Junior Matric. We wish she would return and graduate again in M.E.L. in 1927. AGNES McNAUGHTON " It is the wise head that makes the still tongue. " The first glimpse the world had of Agnes was at Sydenham in 1905. Here she attended public and High School. In the fall of 1925 she entered Queen ' s, but at Christmas she again journeyed westward and stopped at ' O.L.C. to get part of her Honour Matric. dluntnrfi Honorary President President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Mrs. Forman Virginia Frid Elizabeth Gunnison Katherine Stone Lucie Ashbourne 3lumor tuttt On the Saturday during the Old Girls 1 Week End our practical gym was trans- formed into a Japanese Fairyland. A profusion of lanterns, balloons, and streamers met the eyes of the admiring beholders. Midnight blue, Rose and Silver, our class colours, were prevalent in the decorations. The stunt took the form of a charade and the audience was invited to guess the word which was pan-to-mime. The curtains parted disclosing four youngsters listening with wonder to the story of Peter Pan, told by their mother. Finally the little heads began to nod, but suddenly they were wide awake for Peter, himself, had flown in the window and was dancing before their very eyes in their own nursery. Then we took you to the woods, the home of the little lost boys; just as we arrived they were engaged in a pillow fight. Soon they started to sing and did a sweet dance, then scampered away. The most tragic episode of the whole evening then occurred. The curtain, which hides all the mysteries of scene shifting and so forth, fell with a dull sickening thud. The audience was very unsympathetic and indulged in laughter while the frantic Juniors, with the aid of Jack, finally hoisted the offending object to its proper place. It was afterwards said that everything came off splendidly — even the curtain. Brisk sea breezes were felt to blow and the audience gazed upon the briny deep. The stage manager may try to tell you that it was some energetic Juniors underneath sheets and cheesecloth but don ' t allow yourself to be disillusioned. Some old salts were mending nets when a number of their cronies entered energetically towing on a rope. Somewhere beyond the horizon was their burden — a boat of monstrous size and great value. After listening to the yarn of one of the old mariners they all got up and helped to tow the ship. They pulled until they were out of sight but still the sea raged and the rope still came — suddenly there hove in view a boat of such small dimen- sions that it was nearly obliterated by the roaring ocean. Five clowns next appeared. They sang " Yawning " and put much realism into the piece. But what are clowns for, if not to do acrobatic stunts? These certainly kept up the reputation of their kind. Two sang and two performed while the fifth at- tempted to mimic the acrobats but proved to be a poor mime. Just to make it a little more difficult for the onlookers to guess the word there were one or two things which had no bearing on the subject. The first was a chorus in which the girls wore our class colours, each bearing a letter spelling JUNIOR CLASS. They danced and sang one of our class songs. Another was a charming " Alice Blue Gown " dance done by several members of the class. After these dainty dances came the final act, which enacted to perfection the word pantomime. A mischievous Pierette and two distracted Pierrots did a very clever Poffr Sixty-Seven dance. The little lady flirted outrageously but finally appeased them both and they all ran out happily. The evening closed in song. After the Juniors of ' 26 had sung their song the Seniors of the past four years gave their class songs. The College Song which came last was the appropriate close to a very pleasant evening. Smttor (Elaao £ ong Which is the school that is the best? Dear old Trafalgar School that is miles above the rest Old Trafalgar Hall. Other girls in other times have loved their Alma Mater But the Junior Class of ' 26 Love her best of all. Chorus Juniors! Juniors! All for good fellowship, fair play and jollity. Juniors! Juniors! Full of the joy of life, happy may we always be, Swing-along, sing-a-song Be true to O.L.C. Dear old Trafalgar Juniors pledge fidelity to thee. We are the class that ' s headed for fame, We are the Juniors. We ' re the class that has the name Of always playing square. We make things hum, we ' ve lots of fun We ' re always where we ' re needed Bright and gay with lots to say We live to do and dare. Page Sixty-Eight MARION HENDERSON " A comrade Mythe and full of glee. " " Henry " entered this troubled world at Chambly in 1910. After obtaining the foundation of her edu- cation she came to O.L.C. in 1924 as a Freshie. She returned in 1925 with sister Peggy, and has taught us all to call her " Henry. " BETTY BRADLEY " What I have teen taught, I have forgotten ; What I know I have guessed. " Betty writes Toronto after her name and has good cause to do so, as she made her first cry there in 1914. Toronto saw Betty safely through the Entrance Class, and 1924 brought her to the doors of O.L.C, where she safely navigated first form, and now 1926 sees her on her way to third form. LUCIENNE ARBOISSIERE " Impulsive, jolly, sensible, true, She always paddles her own canoe. " " The Little French Girl " was born in Avallon in 1909, but soon after left for Paris. In 1924 Lucienne came to New York, and then to O.L.C. in September. Lucienne returned in 1925 to enchant us with her singing and thrill us with her marvellous work on the basketball team. NATALIE BRANDON " 7 can study my books at any time for they are always disengaged. " Natalie " rushed " into Toronto in 1910 and has not stopped yet. School days at Glen Manor held her for a while, but desiring a change she went to Havergal and completed her first year of High School and September, 1925, sees her at O.L.C. in the Soph- omore line. RUTH BAIN " Of few words and many thoughts. " 1912 witnessed the arrival at Cache Bay of Ruth " Billy " Bain. Having toddled through the first year of High School at Sturgeon Falls she walked stead- ily to O.L.C. in the fall of 1925 to become a Soph. JOSEPHINE CANT " Let all be happy and prosper Let me be foolishly frivolous. Josephine was first heard of in Toronto in 1909. Here she pursued knowledge at Public School and Malvern Collegiate. The second term found her as one of the Sophomores of O.L.C. JANE McMAHON " You need not blush so. that ' s no sin. " Jane began to take an active interest in life in Toronto, 1911. She has continued her activity ever since keeping the faculty awake at Bishop Strachan until she came to O.L.C. as a Soph, last September. MARIE OTT " Fie upon this quiet life, I want to work. " Marie made the initial entry at Montreal in 1910. O.L.C. greeted her in 1923, and she has returned each year since. This fall she entered the Soph- omore Class. VIOLA POWELL " Nothing so bad but it might be worse. " Way up north, where silver comes from, there ' s a place called Cobalt. Way back in 1908 there was quite a stir when Viola burst upon the quiet scene. Last September with the rest of the silver Viola came down south and made her home at 0. L. C. This year she is here again and working with the Sophs. BERNICE ROGERS " I ' ve travelled east. I ' ve travelled west. " Enter Bernice, Willmette, 111., 1912. Bernice has roamed far afield since then and we last heard of her at the Sacred Heart Convent in Vanvouver. Ber- nice settled at O.L.C. after Christmas and is studying music along with Second Form. BETTY WALLACE " Pardon my mirth, it ' s all in your point of view. " Betty was first heard of in Kitchener in 1911, and has been heard more or less since. She obtained her Entrance in Toronto and attended Oakwood Col- legiate before joining the ranks of our illustrious sophomores. Betty is also studying A.T.C.M., taking the course in two years. Page Seventy Out President ' - Marion Henderson Secretary-Treasurer ' ' - Betty Bradley Sophomore Stunt February 26th was the memorable occasion of the Sophomore Stunt. A little before 8.15 that night we assembled in excited little groups. Suddenly the door was flung open and we bumped and jostled each other good-naturedly as we went through. Then we had our first view of the gym which was so transformed as to be almost beyond recognition. It was decorated in sombre shades to represent a haunted house. Shaggy grey cobwebs with spiders huddling in their midst filled the corner-gaps and the windows were gaily decked in red and black, the class colours. After everyone was seated the curtains were parted slightly and an announcement was made that this was to be a skit to show us what happens at night in the rooms at O. L. C. Then after we had gone to sleep the shadowy forms of spiders appeared from all over the room and commenced talking in high squeaky voices. Soon after they were joined by six mice who began to sing a nonsensical song and were copied by spiders. The spiders and mice were very indignant to think that more " rats " were not left around the room so they drew up a petition to give to the occupants. Then they did a litle dance on all fours and cartwheeled out of the room. Everybody enjoyed the skit immensely except the freshmen who regretted the fact that the " eats " had not come on the scene yet. There were two dances followed by a novelty and soon after one of the most important things occurred — can you guess? Why of course it was the supper dance and it was then that the presence of the many coloured strings tangled around the room like a huge cobweb was solved. We each got a string and unwound it and at the end we found two lollipops and a partner. We all sat down on the cushions and benches and in came the spiders and mice with the most wonderful rolls and huge pieces of cheese closely followed by cups of cocoa. After we had danced again we heard the home waltz; and realized that our happi- ness was nearly at an end — but no — there were the yells, to which we lent ourselves with great gusto and happiness and then we filed slowly out because we were loath to leave it all but after all such things cannot last forever and with this we had to be content. Rickety, rackety, rickety, ras We are the good old Sophomore class Happy, snappy, always gay, We like to work, we like to play Hockey, swimming, basketball We play one, we play all Red and black means full of pep, We keep right up to our good old rep. SOPHOMORES .—26. =m Seventy-Two Page Scrrntii-Tlirtr MARION McEACHERN " Though none understand me, I understand myself. " A brilliant career was started in Winnipeg in 1909, when Marion gladdened the McEachern home. Little Marion learned her first ' lessons at Rupert ' s Land Ladies ' College, and there she studied and passed her Entrance in ' 25. Next we find her at O.L.C. as the competent President of the Freshman Class. DOROTHY MAW. " ' Tis the greatest of folly Not to be jolly That ' s what I think. " Dot first made herself known in Hamilton in 1910. Having attended Public School for a while she de- serted that city for O.L.C. in 191 ' 3. This year Dot has joined the Freshmen, and we hope to see her here as a Senior one of these days. GERALDINE WRIGHT " When we fall out with those we love And kiss again with tears. " Geraldine, better known to us as " Gerry, " started life at Calgary in 1911, she then journeyed south and there attended Elliott School. Her next stop was at O.L.C. in 1922. Here she has thrived and almost " grow ' d out of knowledge. " FRANCES BIGGS " My tongue within my lips I reign, For who talks much, must talk in vain. " France ' s adventures commenced in the Valley Town, Dundas. There she attended school and passing through the grades arrived at O.L.C. to join the Freshman Class last September. RETA CROSTHWAITE " Let there be no fuss about me. " Reta sang her first note in Hamilton, 1909. As her family decided that school was necessary she attend- ed the Adelaide Hoodless School and took her En- trance. In September Reta came to O.L.C. to study vocal and incidently First Form. We hope to see Reta graduate in A.T. vocal one of these days. GRACE DAYKIN. " What hath night to do with sleep? " Grace was born in Ottawa, 1909. She attended many schools, but we last hear of her at St. Mil- dred ' s College in Toronto. Seeking adventure Grace came to O.L.C. in September and is seen among the Freshman Class. HELEN DUNDAS " That which I am, 1 inn. " Helen took her first interest in life in Toronto in 1911. The palms of the Sunny South called her in the winters, but she soon came to O.L.C. and last year made her debul from the Elementaries. This year Helen is back again, but now she lines up with the Freshmen. FRANCES LOVERING " Life is so short and insecure that I would hurry away from any pleasure. " Frank ' s first smiles were seen at Barrie in 1910. After an unusually active babyhood Frank was sent to school in Barrie. A few years pass and the family move to Toronto and Frank follows suit. Next event, Entrance at Annette St. School, then O.L.C. in Sep- tember to work a bit and play more. DOROTHY NICHOLSON " Life is a jest and all tilings show it. " I thought so once and now I know it. " Dot entered the scene in Toronto in 1910. There she attended Clinton St. School but came to O.L.C. in 1924 to get her Entrance. Aside from enjoying herself Dot is studying High School this year. JULIETTE ROUSSEAU. " She casts a cheery smile around. " Juliett ' e French was first heard in Montreal in 1910. For five years she attended school there, then came Harriston, Palmerston and finally Whitby. For two years Juliette attended the local public school, but this year she is studying with First Form at O.L.C. We hope we will have Juliette with us again next year. PEARL TRESSIDER " Don ' t catch the fidgets. " Entered: Brantford, 1911. Settled: Hamilton, 1912. Educated: Adelaide Hoodless School. Present: O.L.C, Freshie. Hobby: Scrapping. MARGARET WOODS " Give every man thine ears But few thy voice. " In 1910 at Sudbury Margaret was ushered into this world. She sought knowledge at Public School in her home town, but came to O.L.C. to start High School work with the Freshies of ' 25. I I ' agi Si i i nlii-t ' ii t I Advisory Teacher President Vice-President Secretary Miss Merchant Marion McEachern Dorothy Maw Geraldine Wright The Freshmen Stunt held on January the twenty-second was one of the leading features of the 1925-26 O.L.C. year. (If we do say so ourselves). The stunt was one of the most original ones ever given. The gymnasium was decorated as a barn and as we doubted how effectively we had managed it, we labeled it to be sure there would be no mistakes. The farm implements were represented by small miniatures. The pig, which was so small, was put in a big pen with a sign on " Please do not sit here. " Not that we thought anyone would — but one never can tell what a Sophomore might do. The horse which until this year was the only equestrian representative of O.L.C. was made most life-like with a bath-robe cord tail and a giraffe ' s head. A tiny white speckled horse was the next stall. A table fork was used to represent a pitch fork and an egg-beater for a churn. Nothing was missing, not even " Puss in the Boots " and the " Dog in the Manger. " The novelty dances kept the school interested. The lolly pop dance excelled. The lolly pops were wrapped in our class colours of mauve and purple and made the dance attractive with a pleasant feeling around the palate. The spot and advertisement dances were fun and the balloon and confietti dance was very effective when all the lights were turned out and left just the big yellow moon shining over the ladder to the hayloft. A short skit was put on by Helen Dundas, Reta Crosthwaite and Margaret Woods, who did extremely well. Judging by the laughter it was enjoyed by all. Candied apples, doughnuts and coffee revived our waning spirits and then came the yell which Miss Merchant is responsible for making so cleverly. Marion McEachern, our worthy president, presented Miss Merchant with flowers to saw the appreciation of the class. Dorothy Maw, vice-president, made a similar presentation to Marion.

School days began at Rupert ' s Land Ladies ' College, and were continued at O.L.C. in September, 1925. We hope to see Fern back with the Freshmen next year, pos- sibly president again. DOROTHY CAULFIELD " The best of wisdom is a cheerful grin. " Dot first made her appearance in Montreal in 1910. Toronto next lured her and there she entered Saint Mildred ' s College. The spring term of 1924 found her helping to increase the membership of the Ele- mentary Class. We hope she will join the Freshies next year. PEGGY HENDERSON. " And the little imp of laughter laughed in the soul of man. " Peggy learned to trot in Chambly, N.Y., in 1913. Then she cantered around the country for several years and stopped for knowledge in Montreal. Her present address is New York. Peggy is an energetic member of the Elementary Class, and you may see her out riding most any day. GERTRUDE COOKE " Young and consequently foolish, But willing to learn. " " Cheerful " first lost her way in 1915 when she reached this worldly planet. Settling down to stay she commenced to acquire learning at St. Margaret ' s College, later at Toronto Public Schools. " Cheerful " arrived with the opening of school and has studied with the elementaries all year. MIRIAM COOKE " Alas, what a spendthrift she is with her tongue. " Miriam was born in Stouffville in 1910. Wle ' re sure she was a very good baby and never ran away. School days came at Stouffville and then a few years at Toronto, and 1925 finds Miriam at the doors of O.L.C. ready for a year with the Elementaries. DOROTHY CHAMBERS " All things come to them who will but wait. " Dot was born in Harriston in 1908. She attended Public School there but came to O.L.C. in 1923 to continue her Public School work. Dot is working at her Entrance this year and hopes to say good-bye to the Elementaries forever. y : .v.7. " Seventy hight VIVIAN DAVIS. " For I ne ' er knew so young a body with so old a head. " Vivian commenced her worries in St. Catharines in 1912. In 1924 she came to O.L.C. and joined the Elementary Class. This year she is back again and working hard at her Entrance. We hope to see Vivian in the Freshman Class next year. JEAN FINN1NGLY We are such stuff As dreams are made on; and our Tittle life. Is rounded with a sleep. Jean ' s dark eyes first sparkled in St. Thomas, year 1910. Her education has been obtained at various schools in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto. After Christmas Jean joined the Elementaries and is work- ing for a place with the Preshies next year. DORIAN GRAHAM " She rambled right along. " Dorian was born in Hull, 1912. After her baby days she was introduced to the 3 R ' s at the Ottawa Model School. A few years later we find her at the Carleton School, Ottawa, and September, 1925, found her at O.L.C. ready for a year of work and play with the Elementaries. ELIZABETH McINNIS. " Yet they grow! How they grow! " Elizabeth ' s first chuckles were heard in Onegan Falls, Quebec, in 1914. Four years later we find her in Iroquois Falls, and a year later daily attending public school. In 1924 Elizabeth had her first taste of boarding school life, and back she came again this year to continue her public school work. MARGARET LOCHEAD " Never worries, never fretu. " The population of Brantford was increased when Margaret made her first appearance there in 1911. She started her quest for knowledge at Brantford Public School. In 1925 she came to O.L.C. to get her Entrance, and we hope she will t e a Freshie of 27.

They were questioned throughout but always man ' aged to satisfy these curious people. The morning of January 15th revealed the mystery when a very dainty poster, announcing the Elementary Stunt, appeared on the bulletin board. 8.15 found everyone in the concert hall eagerly waiting for the curtain to rise. The concert hall was prettily decorated in the Elementary Class colors, which are mauve, silver and black. Each member of the class had worked diligently and we were most successful in producing a play. The scene was laid in a girls ' college — a setting familiar to us all. The plot arose from the fact that one of the maids was unable to do her duties as waitress. The lady principal, who was en- tertaining a friend to luncheon, was in despair, when one of the students offered to masquerade as the absent waitress. This arrangement, together with the pranks of several other students, caused a general mix-up, but all the complications were finally smothered out and the curtain fell on a very happy party. After refreshments of coffee, cakes and Eskimo pies were served we all went to the gym. for a few dances. Here the school heard our class yell for the first time. We tidied the concert hall and then tumbled into our beds, tired but very happy.

As Commencement Day approaches, the thoughts of the students who have passed through the gates of their Alma Mater into the larger training School of Life, turn ever and again to the happy hearted days when they were sheltered by the College v Valls. And as each Commencement Day launches the Fair Graduates onto an un- known sea, she who has sailed the pleasant sea, feels that her successor and fellow Student, is not unprepared for the voyage, even if the waves beat high, especially so, when recalling with loving memories the guiding hand of a much loved counsellor, whose serene and inspiring face now looks down from the College wall, made real by the hand of the artist, who caught the Soul of the subject. The Portrait of Miss Adams, former Lady Principal of the College, is indeed an inspiration to every one to do their best, and is a valued link between the students of former days and the present. May we ever keep in mind the object of our Alumnae Association. To unite former students, teachers and ex-teachers in loyalty to the College and in the further- ance of whatever pertains to the welfare of the College and its students.

The ability of the president for her office, the congenial temperament of the executive, and the fidelity of the members have all contributed to make the procedings most enjoyable. Our meetings have been regularly held on the fourth Friday of each month, in Sherbourne House, and the average of attendance throughout has been good. We were fortunate in being able to secure several well known persons to give addresses on various subjects of interest. P ' gr Eiffh tt Onc Among these were Mr. W. H. Tenny, of Buffalo, a recognized poet, with whom was associated on the programme Miss Drescher, a prominent vocalist of New York; Mr. J. W. Hopkins, general secretary of the Metropolitan Board of the Toronto Y. M.C.A.; Miss Merle Foster, distinguished as a young sculptor; Judge J. S. Mott, of the Toronto Juvenile Court; Mrs. W. H. Giles, who spoke on her trip abroad; Miss Gwendolyn Curry, elocutionist; Miss Clara Hire, pianiste; Mrs. Read, Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. O ' Brien, all vocalists; Mrs. Brown, pianiste; Mrs. J. M. Elson, author and journalist, and our own Mrs. J. Westley, who always delights us with her singing. The Chapter feels indebted to all these speakers and entertainers whose talents, so freely given, went a long way to make our gatherings successful. We may feel, in closing our year, that a spirit of sincere loyalty to our beloved Alma Mater has inspired us to associate together and that the friendships formed in our girlhood have run like golden threads through all our assemblies.

Acquaintances were renewed in a most enjoyable way, and several toasts were spoken to. Not a few guests were present from outside points. Miss E. Taylor, associate member, who was seriously ill, we are pleased to know has quite recovered and is able to be at our meetings again. Mrs. Diana (Connor) Curry ' s daughter, Gwendolyn, who has entertained us on more than one occasion, will be married in the early fall, it is announced. WlLHELMINA " FAULDS " ELSON, Rec. Sect.

Alumna? 2junrlf?0n The Council of the Ontario Ladies ' College Alumnae held a most enjoyable lunch- eon in the Oak Room of the King Edward Hotel on Friday, March the twelfth, and many of the Alumnae took advantage of this opportunity for renewing acquaintances and interests in the different Chapters. The two-fold purpose of the luncheon was reflected in fostering a spirit of good- fellowship between all chapters and the Graduating Class, to which an invitation had been extended, and in binding the interests of the Alumnae more closely together. Page Kirih ty-Tioo Sgeramt (SHjapter of tljr (Ontario ffiaitoa (Eollegp Alumna? AflBortation The Ryerson Chapter of the Alumnae Association has had a very successful year. On January thirteenth we held a dance at Jenkins Art Galleries, which was largely attended, and on April 1st we held a bridge at Sherbourne House which was greatly enjoyed by all. During the past year we have had some very prominent people speak to us at our monthly meetings. Some of them were, Mr. J. W. L. Foster, Mrs. L. A. Hamilton, Mr. F. Jacob, Mrs. J. W. Bundy, Mr. Roy Mitchell, Mrs. Llliot, Miss Merle Foster, and Mrs. R. S. Longley. Mrs R. W. Witherspoon, our president, has moved to Hamilton. Mrs. Anna Harley Grobb left on June 3rd to reside in Lille, France. The stork has called on some Ryerson members during the past year. Mrs Laura Nixon Chisholm was presented with a baby boy; also Mrs. Gwen Cameron Hill, a baby boy. Mrs. Felecia Holmes Izzard has gone to reside in San Diego, California. Ada Chown, Woodstock, stopped on her way through from China to Kingston to greet a number of former O.L.C. girls in Toronto. Mrs. Hazel Bone McDowell spent June, July and August on the continent last year. Miss Nella Jefferis had a successful tour through the West with the Cameron Matthews Players. Miss Audrey Taylor was successful in passing her examinations at the Ontario School of Art. Miss Rhoda Howe was very prominent in connection with a debate at University, it being the first Women ' s Open House Debate. Miss Grace Moodie was married on June 2nd to Mr. Grant Davies. Miss Leila Beach, of Cornwall, departed this life on May 7th. In closing I might state that the Ryerson Chapter are presenting the College this year with five new book shelves filled with books.

Association This will probably be the first report from Hamilton for some time. Unfor- tunately an Alumnae Chapter has been started in Hamilton from time to time, but for some reason, has been of very short duration. However, during the Fall of 1925 the increasing desire among a number of the Hamilton Alumnae to have an active chapter, prompted a movement towards forming one. There were several informal meetings during the fall and early New Year. It was not until March, however, that there was a meeting which might be termed promising. On March 4th, 1926, we had the pleasure of having Mrs. G. D. Atkinson, of Toronto, address our meeting. Mrs. Atkinson outlined and explained what we must do to form an Alumnae Chapter. During Mrs. Atkinson ' s address she said it only required ten old girls to start something. There were over twenty at our meeting and over seventy-five on our list. We decided with that number we could start something of considerable mention at any rate. The great question was, how were we to arouse interest. It was very difficult. We decided to hold a bridge and try to have just as many attend as possible. Mrs. Newberry, the mother of our President, Miss Lois Newberry, very kindly opened her home for the occasion. There were about seven tables engaged in play, and about fifteen ladies came later, at the tea hour. Since the bridge, which was held on March 22nd, 1926, we have had one reg- ular and three executive meetings. On May 20th, 1926, a bridge was held at " The Towers. " The bridge was held in order to raise funds. It was very successful, and a nice sum was raised. Although the Chapter is rather small as yet, we hope for the continued and increasing interest of the old students. We are sure that they will continue with their true O.L.C. spirit and make Hamilton Chapter one of the leading chapters of the Association. Respectfully submitted by Alice W. Lees, Secretary Hamilton Chapter Ontario Ladies ' College Alumnae Assn. (Hantlr (£hautrr of tiff GDntario Hadt?B (Enllege Alumna? ABBoriatton Looking over our last year ' s programme, that which stands out very prominently is Mrs. Webster ' s delightfully interesting interpretation of the " Life and Letters of Waiter H. Page. " She made it all so homey, touching on the bright and sarcastic witicisms in these famous letters. The Golden Jubilee two years ago was like a fairy Godmother to dear old O.L.C. Our Chapter considered long and carefully, and finally it was moved by Miss Maud Annes, seconded by Miss Isabella Cormack, that we have a portrait of the late Miss Adams, a former lady principal of the College, painted by a Toronto artist, as our gift. This resolution was adopted, and assisted by a few friends Mr. J. W. L. Forster was commissioned and succeeded in painting a very life-like portrait. It hangs in the drawing-room over the west mantle. The unveiling by Mrs. Geo. A. Ross a year tnis June, was a most interesting incident of the wonderful Alumnae luncheon. Miss Ball ' s travel talks after her last two summer wanderings in Europe were intriguing incentives to emulate her example. The delightful contributions to our programmes by Miss Maxwell, Lady Principal, charmingly culminated in a revealing study of Shakespeare ' s " Much Ado About Nothing. " The Castle Chapter alone of the Alumnae enjoys the great privilege of meeting and hearing the graduating class in May. This is an immensely appreciated advant- age. We vision them coming back in the years to come, reading, singing and play- ing and giving the pleasure to others they have given to us. The Chapter joins in wishing all every joy and happiness for the coming year. Miss Maud Annes, Press Secretary Castle Chapter. (Ottatua (£ haptr r of tt|p (Onlariu £ai)ira (CaUrgr Almnnar Aaaariatian The Ottawa Chapter of the Alumnae Association of Ontario Ladies ' College, sends greetings to the graduates of 1926, with best wishes for their success in what- ever sphere, the future may hold for them. Our regular meetings, which are held on the first Tuesday of each month, at the home of one of the members, have been well attended and greatly enjoyed by the chapter. During the past year it has been our privilege to hear several most instructive and interesting travel talks, given by our members who have recently been abroad, touring the British Isles and on the Continent. Mrs. W. T. G. Brown (Girlie Dun- lop) illustrated her talk by means of lantern slides, and all will especially remember her word and screen pictures of Burns ' home in Scotland. Mrs. J. B. Challies (Agnes Swan) who has but lately moved to Montreal, and Mrs. T. Howell Leggett (Myrtle Gallagher) supplemented their talks with a collection of views and interesting sou- venirs of places where they visited. We have also enjoyed vocal and instrumental solos, readings and papers, prepared on the lives of prominent historical men and women. Community singing has re- cently been introduced at our meetings, and old time songs greatly enjoyed by all. Miss Iva Harrison, AT. CM., as an accompanist, has made herself and her music indispensable at our meeting. Mrs. L. B. Cairns (Leara Gillis), whose husband has been engaged in Y.M.C.A. work in Ottawa for the last three years, will shortly accompany him to Springfield, Mass. Mrs. Cairns is our retiring Recording Secretary, and will be greatly missed by the Ottawa Chapter. We are grieved to report the passing of one of our dearest and most enthusiastic members, Mrs. Jarvis, formerly Miss Barbara Pratt, who left us in the spring of last year, and whose loss is greatly felt by all. She will be sadly missed at our meetings: may we strive to follow her example and face the tasks of each day with a brave, strong enduring faith. Her daughter, Mrs. H. Arbick (Hilda Jarvis), is a member of the chapter, and therefore one of our grand-daughters. " The Ottawa Chapter has two other granddaughters, Mrs. T. H. Leggett (Myrtle Gallagher), and Mrs. Kerfoot (Mabel Gallagher), being the daughters of two sisters and former students of the College. Mrs. J. S. Gallagher (Ellen Miller) and Mrs. A. Gallagher (Emma Miller). Baby girls have recently come to the homes of Mrs. W. G. Barron (Lillian M. Schultz,), Mrs. E. G. Brownell (Edith Hodgson), and Mrs. F. D. Burkholder (Violet Bell). Mrs. Burkholder is a niece of the late Dr. Hare. Mrs. Metz,ler, (Maude Nugent) , of Syracuse, has recently moved to Ottawa and become a member of our Chapter. Among our " newly-weds " we must mention Mrs. A. S. Vince (Eileen Cu ner) and Mrs. P. A. Holmes (Helen Leggett). Miss Essie DeLong, A.T.C.M., is a busy lady with her large class of music pupils, and she is also the very capable organist of Westboro United Church. Miss May Thompson is a Day Supervisor in the Civic Hospital, Ottawa. Mrs. W. Kendall (Francis Shillington) entertained at her home 301 O ' Connor St., afternoon and evening, in aid of the Hare Memorial Scholarship Fund, and a substantial sum was realized. Our annual picnic, which has always been held at the summer home of Mrs. T. Howell Leggett, on Lake Dechene, has been a most delightful event to remember and anticipate. Several members of our Chapter have received life memberships in the Alumnae Association. Mrs. C. R. Westland (Ruth Frazer) 406 O ' Connor St., Ottawa, is our new President of the Chapter, succeeding Mrs. W. G. Keddie (Emma Morgan). Readers of the " Year Book " will be interested in seeing that Miss F. H. McGil- livray, one of the former Art teachers at O.L.C., has been again honored by her fellow artists. Last year, at the November exhibition of the " Royal Canadian Acad- emy " held in Montreal she was made an associate of that Society. A few years ago the " Ontario Society of Artists " made her a member of that Association. Miss McGillivray exhibits yearly at these two societies and was represented at the Wembly Exhibition both years. This spring Miss McGillivray held a splendid exhibition of her own pictures in Ottawa. Noticeably among these were a number of landscapes portraying the wave beaten rugged coast lines of Labrador. There were also a large number of pictures in water and oils faithfully depicting in color and subject the scenery and life of Italy, Spain, Trinidad and other countries which she has visited. Four more of her pictures which were exhibited by the Art Assocaition of Ottawa in the Wilson Art Rooms are — " Falls, Kirks Ferry, " Murphy ' s Blue Fleet, Autumn Ba e IHghty-Ui.r Rockcliffe, On the Sea Wall, Demerara. Miss McGillivray lives in Ottawa at present and we are proud to have her as Hon. President of our Chapter. Mrs. R. R. Miller, Cor. Sec. Ottawa Chapter. $ib (Stria ' Srrital Coming back to your Alma Mater, after graduating, is always a thrilling exper- ience, but to perform also before the students requires a high perfection of art. This was accomplished by Dorothy Morden and Lorna Rumball on December 5 th in the form of a recital. Dorothy Morden graduated from O.L C. with the gold medal for highest standing in vocal. She returned as a teacher, and in 1923 won the gold medal for the Domin- ion, in University Post Graduate Singing. She is now teaching music at the Hamilton Conservatory of Music. Lorna Rumball had the distinction of being Junior Class President, in her first year at O.L.C. and captured the gold medal for highest standing in Expression. She continued her studies at the Emerson School of Oratory, where, again in 1925 she again captured a gold medal. We were very glad to have them with us, and their recital was one of genuine merit, as each is an artist of high repute. April Of all enchantments of the Spring I love the pools that lie In shallow hollows in the fields, Reflecting trees and sky. How fair and soft the April clouds! How tender April ' s blue! Spring takes my eyes with magic spell And moves my heart anew. At night within the shadowed depth A star lies gleaming gold; It seems familiar, small and near, I fancy I could hold That little star within my clasp, — That little, radiant star. A miracle earth ' s beauty is, And heaven not so far. A. A. Maxwell. 3Jnhu ffitiUup In 1890 John became connected with O.L.C. and has remained here for thirty-six years. Until 1921 he worked on the farm but since then he has been our trusty night-watchman and it is in this role that we all know him best. He has been to us not only night-watchman but also a most faithful " wakee " for those of us who get up early to study and who find that the wail ol an alarm clock does not rouse us from our slumbers. The small signs found at night in prom- inent places on John ' s round,, reading " John, wake us up at five-thirty " are not unfamiliar to most of us. But now John is leaving us. He expects to sail for China in August or Sep- tember and is accompanying his daughter who is going as a missionary from the United Church and who expects to be married shortly after arriving there. One night before the girls who stayed over for their examinations, left for home a feed was given in John ' s honour in Ryerson Hall. It was a great surprise to him on his first round to be hailed and asked to join them. But the big surprise was near the end when the S.C.M. presented him with a black leather club-bag, which we know he will take with him and which we hope will keep O.L.C. fresh in his memory. When we think of John leaving us we find it hard to express our feelings as is always the v. ay when friends part but we would like him to know that he carries the good w.shes and love of everyone he has ever known during his long, long stay at O.L.C. — So good-bye, John, and " Bon voyage " and may you some day come back and see us all again. We who are here now may not be here then but those who arc will always welcome you. tr Safari Jffalronpr ' a Utait On Tuesday afternoon, December 4th, we were favored with a visit from Sir Robert Falconer, President of Toronto University. As Sir Robert had only a lim- ited amount of time at his disposal, his speech was all too short, but his inspir- ational message was very clearly expressed. We were all very much interested in his address and realized the significance of his words. He impressed upon us the necessity of living in the present, and not too much in the future. Youth, he said, was the most precious time of our lives. It is only while we are young that we can lay the foundation for future happiness. In closing Sir Robert congratulated us upon our surroundings. He urged us to make the most of our opportunities and strive to attain the highest peaks of success. Prpatitettt § mttIfurirk ' B HtHtt Our school year would be incomplete if the visit of our delightful friend, President Southwick, of Emerson College of Oratory, Boston, were to be omitted. Last year he gave us one of the two stories woven in the play The Rivals, by Sheridan. This year he made the play complete for those who heard him before by reading the other story. We all enjoyed following Captain Anthony Absolute alias Ensign Beverly through the difficulties of his courtship of Miss Lydia Languish. Then of course we had our old favourites the A. B. C. Romance, The Camel and the yarn of the Marion Squizzle. President Southwick is well-known as a Shakespearean reader and on Saturday evening he read Julius Caesar. It is a masterpiece of English Literature and his superb reading of it gave us an insight and understanding, greater than we had ever before enjoyed. We saw vividly the characters of the old Romans who have been given new life by the pen of Shakespeare. On Sunday evening he gave us his usual informal talk. He spoke of tastes and very clearly pointed out how our ideals make us but that we first formulate the ideals. After the service the new girls had the opportunity of meeting him and the old girls renewed their acquaintance with him. mb (Stria ' Wwk-Enii The week-end of February 12th was eagerly looked forward to by everyone at O.L.C. This was the occasion of the " Old Girls ' " re-union which is always a very jolly and informal affair. The first of these re-unions took place six years ago and has been repeated every two years except in 1924, when the Golden Jubilee was celebrated. The old girls finally began to arrive, much to the delight of everyone. The initial event was a reception given by the Seniors of ' 26 to welcome them and to provide an opportunity for the " Old Girls " and present day girls to renew their former friendships and make new ones. Mr. Farewell and Miss Maxwell spoke a few words to express our delight at having them with us again. An enjoyable musical programme followed and at the close of the evening a number of the old girls heard the College Song for the first time. Saturday was, in reality, a sports day. A team representing the " Old Girls " fought against the school team for the honours in basketball. Let it suffice to say that the school team captured them. Their efforts were rewarded, however, by a refreshing swim in the tank. In the afternoon a jolly skating party was held at the town rink. On returning to the college we found a delicious tea awaiting us, prepared by the ever-industrious Seniors. The most noteworthy event of the week-end was the banquet held Saturday evening. Here both old and present day students felt the comradeship and spirit of Trafalgar, which is our rightful heritage. Mr. Farewell, who acted as toastmaster, proposed the first toast to " O ur King. " Olive Isaccs, an old girl, proposed the toast which appeals to all of Trafalgar ' s daughters most deeply, that to our " Alma Mater. " She expressed our sincere love for our college. Kathleen Jenkins ably replied to this toast. The toast to the " Old Students " followed. It was most graciously proposed by Violet Maw and responded to by Grace Elliott, a graduate of ' 25. The toast to " The Faculty " was proposed in a very humorous style by Anne Shaver, and Miss Maxwell replied to it in her usual pleasing manner. The banquet closed in song as we all joined in Auld Lang Syne. Everyone retired to the gym, for, a few days before the poster announcing the Junior Stunt had appeared on the bulletin board. Here the evening was pleas- antly whiled away as we partook of the merriment provided by the Juniors. As is the custom the various classes gave their songs and yells, and in addition to this we heard the Senior songs of ' 22, ' 23, ' 24 and ' 25. The singing of the school song marked the end of a perfect day. Sunday was spent quietly. In the evening our guests attended the twilight con- cert, some of them assisting in the programme. Monday was the day of departure, and we regretted to see our friends leave us, but felt that it had been a most enjoyable week-end. ifflay Sag May Day is always heralded by many and varied speculations concerning the weatherman ' s whims, but this year he was in a very jovial humour. The sun beamed down upon our festivities in his most pleasing manner, while several inquisitive clouds whisked across the sky, but none of them threatened to spoil our pleasure. This is the first time in three years that our May Day costume has been appropriate and we praised the weatherman for giving us his best sample of O.L.C. weather. At ten-thirty we eagerly proceeded to the concert hall, armed with pencils, ready to elect our May Queen. Mr. R. C. Hamilton, in his usual winning manner, intro- duced the speaker, Mrs. Arthur Kingswood, who gave us a charming address on " The Ideal Canadian Girl. " Our May Queen must possess those essential qualities of a womanly character which inspire love and admiration. The address this year was very helpful in guiding us to make a worthy decision. Mrs. Kingswood compared the spiritual growth of the ideal Canadian girl to the unfolding of a rose. She made it very clear that environment has a great influence on us but she also made us realize that in the end everything really depends upon a girl ' s desire to serve. " The power comes from within out, not from without in " . Canada has so many advantages in every sphere of life for her growing generations! As the rose blossoms into a beautiful flower so we grow in grace and inherit our birthright of Ideal Canadian Womanhood. But she clearly pointed out that we do not fulfil our mission in life until we are of service to our fellow-men. With Mrs. Kingswood ' s inspiring words still in our thoughts we cast our votes ior May Queen and Anna Speers was elected as the one most worthy to wear the crown. The Councillors, Gratia Hodge and Irene Edmonds, were elected immediately after the May Queen, amid great excitement. After the elections everyone hurried outside to watch the exercises in honour of the May Queen. The grand march in which the whole school took part, with the exception of the May Queen and her train, consisted of several interesting star formations, after which we formed an O.L.C. At the close of the march we took up our positions in two long lines, extending from the foot of the throne, on the loggia, to the edge of the oval. Then the strains of the Coronation March were heard and the May Queen was seen slowly approaching from the front door followed by her court, Wilma Richardson and Betty Lawler, train bearers, Elizabeth Mclnnis and Vivian Davis, cushion bearers, and Gertrude Cook who carried the pin to be presented to the May Queen of last year. As Anna knelt to be crowned by Mrs. Kingswood, a tremour of emotion ran through the lines of girls, for we all felt the solemnity of the occasion. After the coronation Marion Norton, the May Queen of last year, presented Anna with the May Queen pin which is passed on from year to year; then Miss Fothergill presented Marion with the Trafalgar Daughters ' Pin which is hers to keep. Anna then walked slowly up the long aisle between the two rows of kneeling girls. The programme which followed consisted of several spritely dances which included of course, the May Pole. When the last dancers had scrampered away our Queen descended from her throne and mingled with her adoring subjects, for she was still very much one of us. We soon went in to lunch where the May Queen with her train entertained several of the Queens of former years. During lunch huge hay-racks were seen from the windows, and as soon as lunch was over we dashed madly to don suitable attire for the picnic. Riding in a hay-rack is a novel experience — " gee, it is a wonderful treat to hear the patter of horses ' feet " . We finally reached the lake where a few ardent fans indulged in a game of baseball, while the rest of us strolled along the beach or basked in the sun on the shore. The Pnyc Nincty-Th rcc 1 next most important item on the programme was tea. The Seniors took charge of the refreshments and saw that the needs of everyone were amply supplied. Much to our dismay the sun soon dipped into the west and we had to climb once more on to the hayracks, for the journey home. This long ride through the dusk was the jolliest part of the day ' s fun. We arrived home all too soon, feeling rather like human scarecrows with hay clinging to our clothes and in our hair. As soon as it became dark enough we were able to enjoy fireworks on the front lawn. Due to Mr, Farewell ' s kindness there were skyrockets, Roman candles and big flying elephants, which actually flew. This was a delightful finish for the day ' s festivities in honour of the May Queen and her court. ®tfp iFarultg flag ' The Faculty Play! " " When? " " What? " " Perhaps there isn ' t going to be one this year. " " Oh, but there always is — didn ' t you hear that Miss Maxwell is to be the villain and Miss Wallace is taking the part of an Anglican curate? " As the year drew on as usual rumour was rife with conjecture as to the Faculty play and by a process of elimination, the student body decided that the only date available was Saturday, May 1. Consequently the meek and humble Faculty settled down to " learn lines. " Every effort was made to keep the activities of the staff a dead secret, but there were signs that could not be mistaken. For days every member of the Faculty carried curiously similar sheaves of manuscript and in odd moments might be seen to gaze upon the contents with intense concentration and furrowed brows, accompanied occasionally by a slight muttering motion of the lips. The door of the teachers ' room was kept closed continually. Miss Burns was observed to de ' velop a great affection for Miss Jerome, and they were even heard to address one another, peculiarly enough, as " Carolina dear! " and " Florencio darling! " Miss Wallace employed her most severe, magisterial tone on all occasions, and several people devel- oped an Irish accent. Miss Kisbey was caught in front of her mirror, watch in hand, eyes bulging with amazement, practising the rather unusual feat of dropping her lower jaw and holding her breath as long as possible. Being struck sometime previous to the date of performance by a touch of reck- lessness, the Faculty this year decided to present two plays — " Spreading the News, " by Lady Gregory, and Benevente ' s " His Widow ' s Husband. " Miss Ball, with true tact, explained to the cast that she had selected the people for the various parts according to their temperaments. Miss Jerome, for instance, took the part of a charming young Spanish widow recently re-married. Miss Burns and Mrs. Forman were dashing Span- ish gentlemen. Miss Maxwell and Miss Coburn endeavered to be rather disagreeable- sisters-in-law of uncertain ages but very pronounced dispositions. Miss Fawcett, the villain of the Spanish play, allowed no one to outdo her in volubility of speech, and Page Ninety-Four Miss McClelland was an honest bookseller with a reputation and a large family to protect. The Irish play gave plenty of scope for talk and temperament. Any gaps in the conversation were ably filled by Miss Kisbey, whose chief object was to defend her " poor dear husband, " Bartlcy Fallon. Miss Higgs, as the latter, quite convinced us of Bartley ' s innocence, but threw grave doubts upon the strength of his mentality. The old apple-women, shapeless and very deaf, was found to be Miss Johnston. Miss Merchant, Miss Williamson, Miss Bassett and Miss Bunner all spoke the Irish tongue like natives — and at every opportunity. Miss Parks made a most terrifying policeman, while it was discovered once and for all that Miss Wallace ' s true vocation in life is that of Police Magistrate. There were serveral high points of interest in the play which are worthy of special comment. A prolonged and frenzied conversation, consisting chiefly of repeti- tion, betwen Caroline and Florencio ended only when Zurita (Mrs. Forman) dashed upon the stage, clutching her hat and gasping (not to the audience) : " What do I say now " ? The final affectionate scene between Caroline and Florencio was unparalled for realism and artistic naturalness. Miss Merchant ' s surprising entrance after her sup- posed murder and burial was a source of relief to many. After the final curtain had been pulled, the cast retired, with what dignity it could muster, to the drawing-room to be served with much-appreciated refreshments, and the general feeling seemed to be that whatever the play lacked in artistic finish was amply supplied by the enthusiasm of the audience. Hr. ani Mrs. iFareuieU ' a SinnprH What do you wear? Will I have to drink coffee? Are they formal? These and many other perplexing questions found root in the rumour that Mr. and Mrs. Farewell were going to entertain the girls at dinner. Much to our delight Dame Rumour was correct, for the following week the Seniors received much coveted invitations to " The Cottage " for dinner. On returning they told of the very enjoyable evening they had spent with Mr. and Mrs. Farewell. As the weeks sped by different groups of the girls were entertained at " The Cot- tage. " These evenings were some of the most enjoyable of the year. We always came away feeling that we had found very staunch friends in our Principal and his charming wife. Page Ninety-Five ®bf £ etmtt at ttj? Sag (Eljurrli Soft wind and a sky of blue, bringing more than a hint of approaching summer to the Seniors who were embarking upon really the first event of Commencement. During the long walk through shady streets we were able to forget the cares and worries of examinations and think of the happy memories of our school year. All too soon we arrived at the little church which seemed hallowed by the memory of so many graduating classes who have listened to their farewell sermon from its quaint old pews. Mr. Langford, the rector, gave us a very inspiring talk on the Secrets of Success as interpreted by the lives of great men, taking for his example the life of Joshua. His message to us was ever to strive for our ideal and we will ob ' tain it. To illustrate he took automatic gates which will not open until a vehicle goes right up to them, and then as if by magic they are opened to us and we may go through to our goal. Even if we do not appear to be successful it is well to remember that " A man who does his best is successful whether the world counts him great or not. " We all came away feeling that we wanted to follow Mr. Langford ' s advice and ' pray for strength to perform our tasks, not for tasks equal to strength, and strength will come to you. " At Chapel in the evening we held our own lovely communion service. We had no outside SDeaker. Mr. Farewell, assisted by Miss Maxwell and Miss Ball, took the service. We all felt that it was truly the beginning of the end. and our service i ith only the school present seemed to draw us more closely together and bring us to realize the true meaning of Commencement. ' r j c Ninety-Six President Sec.-Treas. Anna Speers Evelyn Shaver Ruskin describes art as being a " noble and expressive language. " Since the early history of mankind people have been interested in art. In fact, the artistic impulse may be said to have first manifested itself when the cave dweller with colored chalk drew crude pictures on his walls to relieve their gloom and divert himself through the long evenings. This was many years ago — but to-day we still love art because it appeals to our sense of beauty and gives us pleasure. We cannot imagine a school without classes in art. Each year the classes at O. L.C. do creditable work. This year has been no exception to the rule. The elemen- taries and first and second forms did mostly drawing and designing in pencil and watercolor. In the Household Art Class there was a new departure in decorating boxes with Gesso which is a revival of an ancient Italian method of decoration. Sev- eral students devoted all their time to the study of watercolors, oils and china. Many pieces of china were designed and painted most attractively by those interested in that place of art. Besides the regular work of the classes there was the art booth at the S.C.M. bazaar which was supplied entirely by the production of the various cTt classes and came out financially quite equally to the other booths which were made up of decorations. We also made posters for all the stunts, teas, etc. The outdoor sketching trips have been most delightful this spring. It was not necessary to go away from our own Trafalgar Castle. An abundance of beauty was found on every side of us. Never do we see the wonders of nature so vividly as when we gaze at them with brush in hand trying to sketch their beauty on the nvas. We tried to catch something of the beauty of the orchards in bloom, fields of golden dandelions, dark pines silhouetted against the glory of the cloud masses. The poet Browning in his Fra Lippo Lippi, says: We ' re made so that we love First when we see them painted, things we have passed Perhaps a hundred times nor cared to see And so they ' re better painted, — better to us Which is the same thing. Art was given for that.

The school colors, blue and blue, were used as a means of lowering the ceiling and giving a cosy effect. They were also woven into centre pieces for the tables and used for other decorations. The tables were placed around the outside of the room allowing the girls to dance in the centre. A good orchestra had been engaged and it helped greatly in making the afternoon a success. Everyone enjoyed them- selves. The tea arrangements were exceptionally good and the menu allowed for a varied selection of appetizing dishes. It came to a close about 6.30. The results of this occasion were very pleasing to the Athletic Executive, and we hope to the school generally. Papr Xinrty-Xi Page One Hundred laakptball Athletics play a large part in our school life. Everyone has taken a great interest in sports this year and enjoyed all we have done irj that line under the leadership i if Mrs. Forman and her assistant, Miss Burns. The school had two basketball teams, both being very successful. The Senior line-up: Jumping centre and captain, Adelie McLennan; side centre, Gratia Hodge; guard, Georgia Allan; guard, Virginia Frid; forward, Lucille Brownell; forward, Lu- cienne Arboissiere. Junior Team — Jumping Centre, Bessie Depew; side centre, Lillian McCormick; guard, Nell Martin; guard, Dorothy Beattie; forward, Jean Ray; forward, Mary Rodger; subs., Audrey Martin, Lucy Ashbourne, Helen Musgrove; Nina Edwards. After regular practices for several weeks we were ready for our first basketball game which was played in Oshawa against the B.B.C. girls. Both our teams won, the scores being very close. The return game was played here a few weeks later, the victory being ours again. Unfortunately the second B.B.C. team was unable to play. Branksome Hall brought two teams down on November 28th. They came in time for lunch, and at 2.30 all were ready in the gymn, waiting for the whistle to be blown. Again our Senior team managed to be successful, but not our Juniors. They lost the game to Branksome, although both games were well played and each individual did her best. The return match was played at Branksome Hall, the two teams going up by bus, and it was a jolly party indeed. The senior team was again victorious, but the Juniors met with defeat, and though a close game the better team won. The school gave us a warm welcome on our return, which made us realize that we were not playing for our own amusement, but for the glory of all the school. Our last games were with the Oshawa High School, in which both our teams won an easy victory. This is the end of our basketball season. We were victorious in most of our games, but outside of that we have learned to play the game for the game ' s sake regardless of victory, as good sportswomen should. (Syttw Hmuinstratimt Our year ' s work in gym and dancing was demonstrated on April 24th in our gymnasium. We had a large audience waiting for the program to begin at eight o ' clock sharp. The programme consisted of Swedish gymnastics, marching, club and wand work, apparatus and dancing. One of the best features of the demonstration was that every girl who was medically fit in the school school took part. Our visitors seemed to enjoy the programme very much, particularly the appar- atus, and one gentleman could not refrain from saying " Good Kid " when the leader took the first roll on the horse. Path ' Oik H until (d Out Shortly after Christmas we found the ice hard enough to hold us, and we had a number of girls out trying for the school team. Although the weather this year was not very encouraging, we managed to have a senior team to represent our school. Our games were very few but we enjoyed them all. Our team was unsuccessful, but we did learn how to play the game, and it gave us great pleasure to play against such a team as the B.B.C. girls again. They have a good team, and it is worthy of all it wins. The score for the first game was 4-1. The return game was played at the Whitby rink. It caused great excitement. Both teams had many supporters. We lost the game again to B.B.C. After it was over we came to the college and supper was served for us. The girls left us about 6.30, all having had an exciting day. Our team — Centre, Virginia Frid; right wing, Kay Burgess; left wing, Lillian McCormick; defence and captain, Nell Martin; defence, Georgia Allan; goal, Mary Rodger; subs., Kay Nettlefield, Bunny Hodge, Helen Musgrove. Spuria Say Sports day was held on Saturday afternoon, May 29th, in the Athletic field. Many of the girls entered the events and showed good results, due to the practice they had had the previous two weeks in both the gymnasium and outside. The elim- inations were on the preceding Thursday, and it was seen that the girls were really in condition for the events. Adelie McLennan, holder of the Strathcona Shield, which was awarded on Sat- urday morning, was also the winner of the Field Day Trophy in the afternoon.

P io Oif Hiimhid Thn Stye tutmmtng Uta One of the events that makes us realize that Commencement is very near is the swimming meet. On the afternoon of Saturday, June 12th, 1926, everybody crowded down to our hot and steamy tank about three o ' clock to witness the efforts of those who were competing for the medals and letters. This year swimming has been on nearly everyone ' s time-table, and so all the different events had been well practiced and were therefore keenly contested. Those who were taking part splashed in and out of the tank to get limbered up (much to the annoyance of the spectators who wore pleated skirts) until the whistle was blown and the first event announced. As usual the competitors were divided into three classes. Those in Class I held the Award of Merit and were competing for the Gold Medal. Class II, the Bronze Medallion, and were eligible for the Silver Medal, while Class III had neither of these awards, and the winner carried off the O.L.C. Letters. There were contests for speed, style, distance plunging, diving, life-saving and stunts, and all these proved very interesting and very close, several of the divers and plungers having to do their little trick more than once before their standing could be determined. Perhaps the most exciting number on the programme was the hall lelays — Ryerson vs. Main, in which Ryerson was the winner; and then Upper Frances vs. Lower Frances, which Upper Frances won. The final of this was very exciting and was almost a tie, but Ryerson came in first by a hair ' s breadth. In the end it was very unsettled as to who had won in each class, especially in Class I, because in nearly every event there were different winners. Great excite- ment prevailed as we gathered in the dining-room for tea and waited for the an- nouncement which came at last. The gold medal was well deserved and won by Pearl Tressider, who had a total of sixteen points. Equally deserved was the Silver Medal, won by Dorian Graham with nineteen points, while the School Letters were carried off by Natalie Brandon with nineteen points. The whole afternoon was a great success, and to end the perfect day we all went down to the gymnasium to dance after tea, where about nine o ' clock we were served with ice-cream cones. Before closing the athletic report for the season the members of the association would like to express their appreciation of work done by the President, Bunny Hodge, and her executive. The managers of the different activities have worked well, but a great deal of success of the year has been due to the three games captains — Georgia Allan, Lucille Brownell, Lillian McCormick, for iheir very faithful work in helping to get girls out to regular practice and by their assistance at games. T Page One Hundred Four 9 Honorary President President Secretary-Treasurer Miss Jerome Irene Edmonds Georgia Allan The Domestic Class has been very busy since you last heard of us in the Christmas Vox. What have we been doing? Well, if you would really like to know we ' ll tell you. Of course our treasury was in a very low state, so some of our bright girls con- ceived of the idea of selling " hot dogs " to our hockey players after their evening game. Really, I believe we could have sold them anything — in fact we were simply mobbed, much to our treasurer ' s delight. Since we could now look the world in the eye, we decided to spend our hard earned money. A party was arranged at the Grange, and needless to say we will not forget those hot biscuits and creamed chicken for a long time. Miss Jerome, our teacher, insisted that we " see Whitby, " so a little tour to the meat shop was arranged and there we learned the startling fact that pork chops do not come from the cow. Another very interesting excursion was a visit to the hospital where we stood in awe and wonder as we watched the workings of the great hospital. Then to end our year impressively we staged a fashion show, which really was very successful, and we feel sure that the audience was much enthused over our display of the " newest modes. " I think you will agree with us that on the whole our year has been simply splendid. We owe a great deal to Miss Jerome, and we hope she ' ll come back ;.nd lead our Household Science class next year.

" The Honour Club was organized in October, 1918, and has become more and more the essential part of the school increasing in power but becoming less con- spicuous in its administration due to the :o-operation of the girls. The aim of the Club is to teach the members honour, self-control, and community responsibility, to leave a mark of moral achievement in the school and to encourage the girls to live up to the standards of loyalty and good scholarship. The organization is governed by the President, elected at the end of the year to commence her duties at the beginning of the following year when the Vice-Presi- dent and Secretary are elected together with the Presidents of the other School Or- ganizations and Classes. The Council have functioned this year under the able leadership of Audrey Cameron and the advice of the teachers, Miss Ball and Mrs. Jeffrey. Since the Honour Club has been formed in the school the girls have enjoyed more privileges than ever before, and in return they have been improving from year to year until the present Council are proud to state that they have comparatively less unpleasant duties to perform than the Councils of the eight years of its existence. We, " The 1926 Council, " thank the girls for their support, and leave with the younger members our sincere wish that the standards of the Honour Club will become more and more clear to them as they work their way up through the school. Advisory teacher President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Candy Convener Assistant Vox Representative Miss Coburn Kathleen Jenkins Marion Manning Sadie Gascoigne Eleanore Manning Violet Maw Bessie Depew Violet Maw As we see the end of the year approach we turn our heads to take a little glimpse of her as she advances, carrying the burden of all her triumphs and defeats. The S. C. M. has added her share of the triumphs and defeats, rejoicing when she has won, weep- ing where she has lost. As with most organisations we can say, she has tried very hard to play her part well, and if at times she has failed she has also at times gloriously succeeded. We have had some very nice Thursday night gatherings, with various speakers. On one evening Mrs. Turkington spoke to us on Camp Life, in which we were all keenly interested. On another evening several of the girls representing the various activities in the school spoke to us for a few minutes each on the particular work of her organization in the school. We have all had a few tears in our hearts at times during this year, tears shed for the absence of the dearest little Japanese girl we have ever known, who died early in December, Hama Kobayashi. She had planned, at one time, to have a small Christmas party and give to each one of us a little remembrance from Japan, a trinket for every girl in the school. We were to draw lots and thus to choose our own dainty gift. Hama was to tell us a Japanese story, and so complete the little Christmas party. It was such a darling idea, as Hama herself was so dear, and to most of us, was to be kept a surprise. After her death the S.C.M. therefore tried to give the little party so that we might all receive the tiny gifts. The party was a happy one, as Hama herself would have wished it, Miss Maxwell telling us the Japanese story which Hama had many times related to her. We carried away with us very carefully, to be cherished dearly, our lovely little gifts from one of whom we will always think with a great deal of love, Hama Kobayashi. Page One Handier! Eight QH|p (£. ill. lazaar It had been a very successful day, both socially and financially, that memorable day of December fifth, nineteen twenty-six. A hearty invitation to the bazaar had been extended to all in the form of a lovely Christmas poster and had been graciously accepted by practically everyone within the halls of O.L.C., together with guests from the town and from elsewhere. At seven p.m. all was over. We gazed with sad eyes upon the dreadful remains, a mass of destruction which consisted of miles and many shades of blue crepe paper, queer odd-shaped tables, crushed flowers, skates, walls of red bricks (I almost think Santa had something to do with these gorgeous red bricks) some sticky bottles of paste, ugly brown paper, and everywhere, everywhere, thumb-tacks and pins. Most of the blue crepe paper seemed to feel pleasantly at home near the big win- dows on the north side of the Common Room. Listen! You shall hear why! All afternoon that certain spot had been the sunniest old-fashioned flower garden, a gay little bower where dainty fancy work was sold by two picturesque and pretty maids in a costume reminiscent of the Victorian age. Need I say that the blue crepe paper and the dainty flowers played a very important part? The ugly brown paper had also served well. A more realistic wigwam had never been built since the time of the Hurons and Iroquois. Here were also the skates and snow-shoes, some more of the blue paper, and a large quantity of the pins and tacks. The A. A. know well how to catch the public, and the sweater clad campers managed a large business that afternoon. By the way, those red bricks must be explained. Let me say, they had been built into a sweeter little candy shop than ever I have seen in any street corner from London round the world to London again. With great vivacity candy was sold to the many customers from the hands of two young maids arrayed in an all white attire and whose appetites showed conspicuously at regular intervals causing thus the disappearance of a certain amount of their wares. The art booth! What colour, what wonders, what beauty is displayed! Every- where, to this day, one finds parts from that booth scattered in various corners of the school, and, placing them together like a huge picture puzzle, one builds again in one ' s mind the very lovely little art booth of the S.C.M. bazaar. The Tea Room with its splendid Christmas tea, its cozy fires and its never-to-be- forgotten refreshments was an important part of the afternoon program. Also, one must not forget the fish pond in the form of a Christmas tree. We swept, dusted, cleaned and destroyed until once again the Common Room took on her week day robe and the Reception Room remembered herself as " Tea Room " only as in dreams. The girls of twenty-six had seen their annual bazaar come in as a lion and go as a lamb. Page One Hundred Nine Page One Hundred Ten The Club has had a very happy and successful year in all. In our various little social gatherings we have talked and played together and enjoyed every minute of :t. Especially do we remember the evening Miss Maxwell spoke to us and which, finishing in a general talk for all of us, Mr. Atkinson greatly contributed to. Also, we cannot forget our debate and the many times we have enjoyed music from the ever obliging musical faculty in our Club. The year ended with an afternoon tea given us by Mrs. G. D. Atkinson. The presentations to the studio were made, and our hostess completed the day with a very ieal little talk which caused us all to pause a moment and think. C ' est jini. Once again on January sixteenth the Reception and Faculty Rooms were miracu- lously changed into tea rooms — distinctive and yet very simply decorated. Crackling grate fires, blue and gold tables with vases of lovely little flowers and odd, frilly French dolls helped in our arrangement, and with the utmost ease and dig- nity French maids served us. Oh! the deliciousness of the salads and cakes! Long will they be remembered by those who enjoyed with us this quiet and happy afternoon. Page One Hundred Eleven mttiiaa ftartg The usual throng of bulletin-board spectators stood gating at the unique and novel poster proclaiming to all who cared to cast their glances in its direction that on the evening of March fifth, the Okticlos would entertain informally in the Gymnasium. So when the time came for that occasion we wended our way to the place of most enjoyment and waited to see and hear the result of our anticipa- tions. Many and numerous were the feats performed. One moment you were rapt in wonder quaking for fear you might be called on next to yield to Monsieur le Comiaue, none other than our " Bunny, " who had people doing the most gro- tesque things. And again there was a fashion parade, startling in its originality and absurdity — fashions from the Stone Age to the first century, novelty dances and all things which we enjoy. Ham sandwiches and coffee, most plebeian and yet most appetising, were indulged in. After this slight repast each of us seeing articles which we needed for comfort and beauty, seized them and reluctantly went to bed. (Etirnmattr (Elttb The Chromatic Club has now ended its third year of existence and which we hope has been a successful one. We have not appeared as a club in public this year but with ourselves have en- joyed our monthly meetings. These meetings consisted of a short program, a game or two and refreshments. The programmes were given by Miss Widdup ' s pupils assisted very often by pupils of Miss Merchant, who gave an added pleasure to the evenings. Our St. Patrick ' s meeting was of a special nature, having as guests on that occas- ion the executive of the " Okticlos " and also four of its senior members who played For us a quartette which we all enjoyed so much. Miss Widdup, our honorary teacher, is ever interesting and always willing to help us in any way. We all know that our success has been due to Miss Widdup ' s fa ithful and helpful guidance. We trust that the fourth year of the Chromatic Club guided by so splendid an honorary president and teacher, will be a very happy and successful one. Mxbz ilanj Sane Uprrljanf 0 Serttal Miss Merchant has another fad! She insists on trying her L.T.C.M. vocal this June. One of the " minor " requirements in connection with this more or less ele- mentary examination is that the candidate give a recital at the Conservatory of Music, Toronto. With this looming in the near future Miss Merchant gave a rehearsal recital at the College on Saturday evening, March the twenty-seventh. Par ' : One Hundred Twelve An O.L.C. audience is indeed a critical one, though it must he said the girls are always ready to express all due appreciation to the performer. Miss Merchant needed no special effort to " put things over " that evening, for as soon as she made her entrance the audience was hers for as long as she wished. Credit is also due to the accompanist (so often forgotten) , Miss Johnston rendered them beautifully. Her own piano numbers were very interesting, especially the Deduis Concerto which was quite artistically performed. Miss Kisbey supplied the orchestral accompaniments, on the second piano for this. So much for the school recital. In Toronto on Thursday evening, April 15th, friendly people were beginning to gather in the Conservatory Concert Hall at eight o ' clock, and look expectantly toward a platform beautifully decorated with ferns and palms. At 8.30 Miss Merchant made her first appearance, looking very dainty in a gown of black and silver. Her interpretation was quite delightful in many of the numbers among which there was not one of the ordinary type. She passes so easily from the mood that such songs as " Si me vers " and " L ' Heure Exquise " express to such as " Le Papillon " or again to the " Jewel Song " from " Faust. " The entire programme was very unique and lovely. May we congratulate you, Miss Merchant, and wish you every success in the future. Boral (Eonrert This time it was not a pianist of note, but a group of well-known artists who presented to us a programme quite unique in its own way. Most outstanding of our musical guests was perhaps Alfred Heather, who for years was soloist in West ' minster Abbey, and since then holding various posts, has settled for all time in Toronto. With him were associated Ethel Gentle, a little soprano of no mean voice; Beatrice Maison-Fitzpatrick, a charming mezzo; Mr. Freeman Wright, whose musical drolleries were irresistible, and Florence McNair, who possesses a voice of amazing power and technique. The programme began with that pleasing thing, " Flora ' s Holiday, " but as the evening progressed we felt that the singers were becoming more finished in their efforts until in Part II wie listened to " The Garden Scene " from " Faust " Miss McNair was a lovely wistful Marguerite, and Mr. Heather presented a striking picture as Faust, while Mrs. Fitzpatrick held interesting " tete-a-tetes " with Mr. Wright, who depicted Mephisto. Between Parts I. and II. of the programme Miss Kisbey played the first move- ment of the lovely Grieg Concerto in A Minor. Miss Helen Johnston accompanied her at second piano. In addition to giving a fine programme, they left us with the impression of inti- mate friendliness which is so refreshing and all too rare at a formal concert. Page One Hundred Thirteen Karljtttatttwiff Before Rachmaninoff appeared the air simply throbbed with expectation. The interval between the time that he sat down and when he played the first note was an exceedingly good example of the " minute that seems an hour. " The audience was unusually appreciative, and Rachmaninoff responded to it by playing better than he has done for several years. The stamping and clapping nearly brought down the house. He has a very unusual personality and is different from many other pianists in that he seems to draw your attention to the very beauty of the music rather than to what a marvellous musician he is. Rachmaninoff absolutely loses himself in what ' ever he is playing. The Leibesfreud was beautifully rendered, and Rachmaninoff brought out the lovely melody and rythm of the selection. The Partita was the finest number on the programme, although this may not be the general opinion, as Bach is appreciated by so few. He seemed to have found the ' " key " to the beauty of Bach and his part-playing was wonderfully distinct yet perfectly harmonious. Although it was a beautiful programme and the famous pianist was at his best. It will be long before anyone will be able to forget that evening. HCmalrr (Slantnt One of the most interesting events of the year took place on March 23 rd, at Massey Hall, when a number of the students had the pleasure of hearing the noted violinist, Kreisler. As this king of violinists struck the first notes of the Kreutzer Sonata by Beeth- oven, that great audience realized at once that an artist stood before them. Kreisler is not only a violinist, but a psychologist, and as such he arranged a program to please an audience of varied tastes. This was more evident as the recital progressed, as he satisfied both the most critical and the lover of music. He not only displayed his mastery of the violin, but played upon the heart strings of the people. No fatigue was shown at the completion of two long numbers, Kreutz,er Sonata and the Concerto in D minor by Vieuxtemps. Among his group numbers were Ave Maria, by Schubert Wilhelm; Volga Boat Song and Russian Hymn, by Kreisler. He was cbliged to repeat that delightful number, Dancing Doll, by Poldini. The critics paid him the greatest compliment when they compared his flawless playing to the perfect art of Andrea del Sarto. — E.M.W.

A delightful programme was presented to an eager and appreciative audience. Miss Mary Feasby opened the program with the well known Theme and Var- iations in E flat by Mendelssohn. Cantique d ' Amour by Liszt as played by Miss Mabel Elliott, revealed the charm and loveliness of its melody. Miss Evelyn Trick delighted her audience with her rendition of Susan GlaspelFs most humorous reading " Suppressed Desires " . This was followed by two modern numbers, " Allegro " and " Lento, " by Cyril Scott, played by Miss Audrey Cameron with good interpretation. Miss Violet Maw played the first movement of Beethoven ' s Sonata op. 90 in a sympathetic manner. It is always a great pleasure to hear Miss Helen Bunner, soprano, the assisting artist of the evening. Clear and sweet her notes rang out to the listening audience in the oratorio " Oh, Had I Jubal ' s Lyre! " by Handel. Miss Nell Cooper played the Concert Polonaise by Hahn in a brillaint manner. Miss Inez Savage, who has great possibilities for a future career, closed the programme with two selections, " To Old Vienna " by Godowsky, and the Prelude in G Minor by Rachmaninoff. Page One Hundred Fifteen V The platform, graced with beautiful bouquets of tulips and deeply shaded lilacs, formed an appropriate setting for the Recital on June fourth. By the programme presented we anticipate a group of graduates of high standing for ' 27. It was indeed a pleasure to be one of the audience and we wish the Undergraduates ' great success in their music.

The programme presented by the pupils of Misses Widdup, Johnston and Kisbey, assisted by the vocal pupils of Miss Mary Jane Merchant, was of a most pleasing nature, and the aud ' ience showed its interest in a most appreciative manner.

We know the choir to be one of these organizations. Week by week they, with solos and duets, anthems, etc., enhance our Chapel service. We wish to thank Miss Merchant and her choir for their delight- ful music, especially the cantatas they so charmingly rendered both at the Christmas and Easter services.

" The Com- mercial class this year under the capable leadership of Miss Mary McLellan, have reached a height of excellence for which we feel very grateful to her (we almost feel justified in our conceit). Although it has meant a great deal of work for the graduation, this has been offset by the many good times we have enjoyed. The winter social activity due to unsuitable weather for sleigh riding was held in the form of a tea party at Rypalin, on November 31st. We will not soon forget this jolly event. Miss McLellan was our gracious hostess and we all felt much indebted to her. Then followed a long winter of hard work but, with Spring our minds again turned to the frivolities of life and we planned an afternoon in the woods, but once again the weather man forsook us, so we resorted to Spruce Villa Inn. Here we let it rain and let it pour while indulging in every sport in-doors. We were the guests of Audrey Lawlor for a delightful afternoon, when we re- laxed and left the click of the typewriter far behind us. The six graduates leave to the seven Juniors their best wishes for as successfu and happy a year as they have had. W ■Page One Hundred Eighteen Iramattr (Elnb Honorary President President Secretary Treasurer Miss Ball Evelyn Trick Nellie Martin Ruth Brown The Dramatic Club of ' 26 have had a very gratifying year. Due to their efforts the school has enjoyed unique evenings which were the Hallowe ' en skit, the Mid-Year play, the play presented during Commencement week, and President Southwick ' s visit. The Hallowe ' en skit, " Local and Long Distance, " a farce in one act, was received with much applause together with an impressive story told by a negro mammy to her little pickanninies. The Mid-Year play, " Daddy Long Legs, " which took place on February 5th, was one of the most pleasing features provided by the Expression students. This is a iharming comedy in four acts by Jean Webster, taken from her book by the same name. The delightful lines, together with the brilliant, pathetic and humorous, con- stitute the simplicity and beauty of the play. Evelyn Trick, in the leading role of Daddy Long Leggs, portrayed truly the character of a middle-aged bachelor who, aftei consenting to act as guardian to the young orphan, Judy Abbot, fell deeply in love with her. This part was artistically played with spirit and charm by Ruth Brown The other parts were cleverly represented by various members of the Dramatic Club. Hutlf (hit HiiiiiIii iI ' in ' (• it Page One Hundred Twenty (Eommenrrmpni Play The last evening ' s entertainment which the Dramatic Club of O.L.C. provided this year on June 15th, was indeed an exceedingly pleasing and successful one. Be- sides the students there were many others who enjoyed the play entitled " A Scrap of Paper, " a comedy in three acts. This play was taken from " Pattes de Mouche " by Victorian Sardou. and was first presented in England in 1861. It is a neat model of a well built comedy, and is neither deep nor emotional. The cast consisted of twelve characters. The scene was laid in a French country house, which was the property of Baron de la Glaciere, who was married to Louise de Merival. Before her marriage Louise had had what she later referred to as " an idle flirtation " with Prosper Couramont. Her mother, however, hustled her off one morning to marry the Baron, and before leaving Louise wrote a love letter to Prosper, placing it inside the statuette of Flora, which served as their post, thinking that he would get it the following morning. But he was unable to do this, and three years later when they meet again, both endeavor to obtain the " Scrap of Paper. " In the course of events Prosper falls in love with Suzanne, cousin to Louise, who helps her to procure the letter. A match is also made between Anatole, the young ward of Brismouche and his sister Mile. Zenobie, and Mile. Mathilda de Merival, sister to Louise. So in this happy and delightful way the play came to an end and as Prosper said, " To the contentment of all around.

The latest book — " The Tale of a Shirt, by Babe Christie, " written the night after the gym. dem. Elizabeth, going out to eliminations before sports day: " I ' m just going out to be il- luminated. " Miss Higgs (to class) — " Turn to your map of British Columbia while we go over the Rocky Mountains. " Spike wants it known that her hobby isn ' t having crushes on gym teachers, and if they take her girlish affections in that man- ner she can ' t help it. Kayj (to first formers in the gym who are scrubbing the forms) — " What are you doing the forms for? Helen D. — " Forman. " Mrs. Jeffery: " Now, what makes the tower of Pisa lean? " Kay Mc. : " Huh! If I knew I ' d take some myself. " They call me everlasting green, cried Gertrude Cook. because I ' m Phylis Baker: " What would you give for a voice like mine? " Dot C. : " Chloroform. " Spike (at the office) — " Please I want Cicero ' s key, and David Copperfield in two parts. " Miss Coburn: — " Oh, where oh where! are Mrs. Forman and Miss Burns? " Miss Kisbey — " Oh they went up to To- ronto to buy five hundred yards of mater- ial to wrap around the little student body. " Mr. Farewell (to modern history class) — " Yes, girls, the study of chickens is very interesting. " (At once the class hides its blushes) . Miss Jerome, talking to the domestics about how many courses they should have at dinner — " No, girls, you never have more than three curses at dinner. " Tricky — " I used to ride, but my horse would take me a long way out and then dump me. Then I ' d have to walk home. " Onie — " Gee, I ' d take my roller skates if I went out with that kind of a horse. " A speaker being introduced to the twins: Well, well, and do you all come twice? ' Miss Burns (indignantly during march- ing) — " Class, stop scuffing and pick up your ballet (bally) shoes. " Page iu tlmuiu ti Tiventy-Tln Miss Wiliamson (telling the freshies how the French kiddies prepare for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve) : " Yes, girls, they put carrots in their shoes and put them outside the door for Santa Claus. " Dot Maw — " Say, what do they think Santa Claus is, a rabbit. " Miss Coburn declares that chewing sylph gum has done wonders for her. Whispered exclamations, hurried steps. The Faculty are in an uproar! There were men — actually men — outside talking to the fair inmates of the school. What could they do? They were powerless. Why phone the police of course! Just as they all grabbed at the phone together in their frenzy, a tall, majestic figure stalked in, reacting on the flustered Faculty like oil on water. " Never mind the police, " purred Miss Wallace, " J will settle them in my own quiet way. " Dottie C. — " I don ' t know how it is, but I feel all wound up to-night. " Spike (yawning) — " That ' s funny and still you don ' t seem to go. " Tricky, down town : — " Make me up your pork sandwiches to take out " . Mrs. Paterson to Gertie: " Gertie, dress up your grunts to go walking. " Betty G., giving instructions to Mary: — " Mary, tell that printer to send up our tail- pieces P.D.Q.! " Gige: — " How long have you known Liz? " Nell: — " Why, " I have known her since she wore her fur coat only on Sundays. " Miss Burns : — " Have you any Hobbies? Kayj : — " Yes. " Miss Burns: — " What? " Kayj : — " Horses. " It is better to give, than to loan room-mate. Rhoda Frid was raised on the outskirts of the town, that ' s why she doesn ' t consider it necessary to wear a petticoat. Miss Holland: — " Why don ' t you wash your face? It ' s dirty. " Gertrude : — " What ' s the use, it ' ll be dirty by to-morrow. " Miss Maxwell: — " We ' ll take the life of Caesar to-morrow. " Vi: — " Sorry, but it ' s been taken already. " We are still wondering why Onie refuses to appeal her Algebra exam. Although she claims that she has a reasonable excuse! Things we have never seen: A person fly off the handle. A board walk. A horse fly in a window. A blind street. A person with one foot in the grave. Laugh these off or we ' ll " kick your teeth in " as one of our famous faculty would say. THE DIRGE OF FIFTH FORM Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder why you are Blotting my diploma fair How I wish that you weren ' t there. Kayj boasts that she has a wooden leg, but Agnes says that ' s nothing, since her sister has a cedar chest. Miss Burns: — " Henry and Peggy rode during Easter. " Betty: — " Rowed! where ' d they get the boat? " Page One Handled Twenty-Four Mrs. Forman, seeing Dot L. and Betty G. fondly embracing " Oh, I see the press is pressing. " Vi — " Why do you always wrinkle your face so, Bessie? " Bessie D. — " I got it from drinking out of a saucer when I was a kid. " Isabelle (remarking about the position of the olive on the tooth-pick stuck in Irish ' s sandwiches) — " Why are they half mast, Irish? " Irish — " Cause they don ' t know if they are going up or down. " Liz,. — " Why I think it is so mean of the kids not to sign the book. Why I always do even if I am going out or not. " At a Faculty meeting discussing the Sen- ior dinner: Mr. Farewell — " Next is a toast to the Alma Mater. " One of the Faculty — " Ought we not to have old girls for that? " Mr. Farewell — " Yes. Let me see, have we any pretty old girls in the school this year? " Some Freshies going in (46 U.F.) — " Fay, may we apple pie Mary ' s bed? " Fay (showing unusual interest) — " Where are you going to get the pies? " Glen M. — " Is Miss Parks teaching Art? " Ruth B. — " No, she ' s teaching Joe. " Miss Merchant — " I say, Audrey, you will sing now, won ' t you? " Audrey — " Sorry. I-er-I haven ' t brought along my bath. " Spike, at Child ' s — " Waiter, do you serve fish here? " Waiter — " Certainly, madame, we cater to everyone. " For those who are curious about Spike ' s curls we want to set their mind at rest. Spike gets her curls by heated persuasion. Mary Rodger, (on entering room where Juniors were making the baskets for their tables for Senior dinner, said) — - " I ' m going to be the Forman of this job. " We have heard that Mrs. Forman ' s ambition is to sing on the stage in the well known operetta " I passed by her window. " Kayj: — " Little Spikey has a nightingale in her throat.

On every hand the car and truck are solving problems of transportation of men and goods, thus playing a major part in the progress of the Do- minion. It is logical then, that the automobile and truck should be Canadian products built to Canadian standards for Canadian conditions of roads and climate.
