Because of this late beginning the book has not reached the standard we might have wished to attain. Since their duties were assumed at the time when their school work was heaviest, the Editorial Staff could not give to the Year Book all the time that they would have desired. Nevertheless, all things taken into consideration, they would like to express the hope that the book will prove acceptable, and may serve as a beginning for the editors of subsequent years to build upon. Page Three Cbitonal As our school year draws to a close, we must loo hac to see what it has profited us. If there are any who doubt that they have received anything beneficial or con ' structive at O.L.C. this year, let them loo hac with us and weigh the evidence. Perhaps the most important thing we have gained this year is friends. A true friend is the most valuable possession any person can have, and at O.L.C. we have made friends whose love we will cherish all our lives. Of immeasurable value also has been learning to live together in a harmonious community life. We have had to be broad-minded, ready to meet others half-way, or our life here would never have been a success. If there is anything needed in the world today, it is people who are willing to co-operate and sacrifice for the benefit of all. Hence our experience here will he mvalimble to us in years to come. When we leave this school, we will enter a world of confusion and misunderstand- ing, but we will also enter a world at a great turning point in its history. Either it can become a place of peace and good will, or it can become lost again in the mael- strom of its greed and jealousy. It is up to us. We now what we want. Do we now how to get it? Our life at O.L.C. this year has helped to equip us, not only by our academic studies hut also by our daily life together, to grasp this situation intelli- gently and with imderstanding, so that we may at least help to start the world on its way to the goal of peace and security. M. MacL. Page Four €tiitorial This year the future loo s more hopeful to us who are starting out in a world which is m the process of freeing itself from the dar shadows of war. Most of us realize that the years ahead offer all a mighty challenge. We are conscious of the tremendous problems which confront our generation — the tas of rebuilding abroad, the problem of readjustment at home and, above all, the necessity to establish a firm foundation for peace. We have been acquiring the tools with which to equip ourselves for ta ing part in the great job ahead. We now that the responsibility is that of youth and we realize that this responsibility is an honour — perhaps the greatest honour awarded any people at any time in the history of mankind. The leaders of every peace-loving nation realize, as exemplified m the San Francisco Conference, that we must rearm morally for the battle for peace which has already begun. There miwt be no " Lotus Years ' this time. The slaughter, the hearthrea , the disease of the past decade must never be allowed to occur again. We, the people, have a responsibility to those of our generation, who will be returned service men and women, and to the starved peoples of Europe and Asia, crushed by the ruthless " Isms ' . Totalitari anism must be banished. We must discard material- ism, don the garment of love, and rearm for the fight to retain the peace which we all hunger after. The challenge is directed not only to the Youth of today, who remained at home during these five years of war, but also to the veterans who return. They have a responsibility too. We must help them to fulfil their responsibility. There will be another war in another twentyfive years if the returned soldiers thin that their duty is done. We need these men who have met reality and now what will happen if we fail now. Everyone everywhere — no matter what his position in life — has before- him a challenge and a respo-nsibility in the Battle for Right. The education which we have been receiving here, and which we shall continue to further in the great wide world around us, will mal{e us responsible custodians of the democratic traditions of our land. We need the courage, the vision and the deter- mination of a strong people if we are to succeed. Let us bend our shoulders to the tas . Let us not shun the advice of our fathers and express the opinion that we, the Youth of the World, now all. Let us put our hand in the hand of God and soon we shall discover that the way is not as difficult as it now appears. V.J.R. Page Five Jforehjorb With the cessation of the war in Eurobe, we resume the puhlica- tion of our College Tear Boo with its record of our year together. The student hody this year has been a very representative one with students from Halifax to Vancouver, from England, and from the United States, Bermuda, Jamaica, Guatemala, and South America as well. We each have learned something from the other ' s viewpoint, and its effect on us should be to promote understanding, tolerance and respect in regard to those whose backgrounds differ much from our own. I congratulate the Editor and the Committee of Management on the completion of their enterprise and hope that the Tear Boo}{ may do mtich in preserving in memory, and perhaps deepening, the various experiences and activities of the school year. To those who go out from the school we extend best wishes for a well ' lived and happy life. Whether you go on to the University to further your education, or assume a business position, or set up a home for yourself, we trust that you will remember with pleasure your life at O.L C. and ivill cherish in your minds and hearts the things for which the College has endeavoured to stand. To the larger number of students who will be with us again in September we wish a happy and restfid holiday. C. R. Carscallen.

In dedicating the 1945 editwn of the O.L.C. Year Bool{ to the lately retired Dean, Miss Maxwell, we are well aware that we are doing ourselves an honour of which our efforts are far from worthy. Annie Allison Maxwell came to O.L.C. in 191 J, and gave this College twentynine years of devoted and distinguished service. What that service has meant to the school can never he adequately esti- mated. But the fine reputation whi ch the school has always enjoyed is due m great part to her high qualities of character and administration. The esteem in which she is held in educational circles and the affection with which she is regarded hy hundreds of former students have combined to ma e the name of O.L.C. honoured and beloved not only in Ontario hut all over Canada, and m many distant parts of the world. Her wide reading and remarkable memory made each English class a rich experience for her students who under her discriminating guidance learned a love of good literature. She herself has a delicate gift of poetry. She has been much missed hy all at O.L.C, including, we are sure, the birds, the flowers, and Traffy, between whom and herself there existed a deep mutual regard. Fortunately she has been able to he with us on many important occasions during the fast year. We are grateful for her influence and for her abiding interest in the College, and we hope that she will continue to visit us as often as opportunity permits. Page Nine OTelcome to Jtliss isisions We welcome to our rn dst Miss Sissons, the new Dean of our College. Miss Sissons has travelled widely abroad and her experience thus gained on the Continent and also at Ontario High Schools where she previously taught have all helped her to attain the qualifications of a cap ' able and understanding Dean. Miss Sissons has had before her a very difficult tas and we believe that she has succeeded in capably fidfilUng the position of Dean of our College. Let those of us who return m the Fall pledge ourselves to give every possible assistance to Miss Sissons during the next years when she will be with us. We hope that you have enjoyed this, your first year at O.L.C., Miss Sissons, and that you will continue to be happy here during the years that follow. Page Ten a iHlfSgagc from JHisfEi iiioni How very short a time it seems when you look back on it now, these last ten months at O.L.C. But what a store of pleasant memories we share! Let us turn the pages of our mental snapshot album. Even that rather painful rainy day when we first slipped a trifle nervously past the guard of the lions, and ran a gauntlet of questions, and said good ' bye to parents, and faced a bare bedroom and an unknown room-mate, seems precious and amusing now. Then those lovely autumn days and that one perfect golden tree flooding the whole dining-room with sunshine; winter — the evergreens piled high with snow and the vestibule with skis (br-r-r but morning walks were chill) ; spring — the apple orchards and the May Day sunshine as a fitting setting for our pretty Queen and her Court; and to cap it all another perfect day for commencement and our white-gowned graduates, glamorous with red roses, the centre of everyone ' s attention and pride. It has surely been a good year, with frequent news of victories, providentially not for many of us saddened by news of loss of loved ones overseas. Certainly the one day out of the whole year which we will never forget to the end of our lives was the thrilling day when we heard that the guns had ceased in Europe and the Atlantic was at peace. With what thankful hearts we went together to Church to pray that this peace would endure not only for our time but far beyond it. We can not forget that, and, remembering, we must not forget that the keeping of the peace depends on us. We all enjoy singing Whittier ' s grand hymn ' O Brother Man ' . (We have had it on Main Hall nearly every morning, led by that notable quartette in No. 9). Let us hope that, like its tune, which sticks in the mind, its principles may be incised deep into our conduct, and every time we find ourselves slipping into intolerance or prejudice of class or race, those words may sing in our hearts above all the ' harsh discords and unpleasing sharps ' of life. To all of us the year has brought much of lasting benefit. We have made progress in our studies: through art and music and science and literature we have been learning more of the beauty and wonder of the world; through language and history and geography more of our brother man himself; through mathematics, commerce and economics how to adjust ourselves to practical problems; how to care for our health through courses in home nursing and healthful living; how to exercise, relax, and play in teams through games and gymnastics; how to train our minds through the formation of regular study habits; how to govern ourselves through the observance of simple rules of community living; and where Divine direction may always be found through regular Church and Chapel attendance. We have not all, of course, enjoyed complete success in learning these things. But even from our failures we can profit, if we have learned, in spite of discouragement, to keep our courage and our standards high. Only by setting our goal of perfection ever farther ahead, and then striving with all our might and main to reach it, do we win satisfaction for ourselves. We are never really pleased with ourselves when we have done something which was easy to do. The real satisfaction comes with achieving something hard. We may be a bit out of breath when we reach the moutain top, but the view up there will be wonderful. I am afraid that I have become so used to dishing out the " oysters " that the flavour is here too. But no one reads a " message " as long as this anyhow. Perhaps however, someone may skip to the last paragraph, and so here I shall put what I most want to say: to all the students of the year ' 44- ' 4 ' T, and especially to the graduates, my most sincere good wishes for success and happiness. Ave atque vale! Muriel H. Sissons Page Eleven Page Twelve College ong Presented most affectionately by the Graduating Class of ' 25 to their Alma Mater Dear old Trafalgar Hear thou our hyynn of praise.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Hastily scribbling a note of last minute items to the children, I looked ahead with anticipation to seeing the old gang again. This reunion of the Class of 194? in Australia was a splendid idea. As usual I had trouble getting the helicopter started but eventually I was on my way. Jt seemed rather foolish to go by way of Europe but my old friend VIOLET DIXON was determined we would see the Taj Mahal by daylight and this seemed like as good a chance as any. On my way across the continent I am to pick her up in New York. Well, here we are already. Goodness her job as sound effects for the " Laugh Provoking Chiclets Program " seems to agree with her. Such a cheery face. I certainly caught up on my gossip. Her old roommate SHEILA BAMFORD, who had planned a music career, didn ' t get along so well — she is now carrying music copies from office to office in " The Down and Out Songwriters Co. " By this time France is just about in sight and the first thing we see on land is a red flag of distress, but drawing closer we recognized one of DOUGLAS GOR- MAN ' S red stockings. Despite the fact that she had diligently trained as a nurse, bright colours still rated high. With her ELAINE KAUMEYER was studiously cramming for Commerce exams. After all eighteen years aren ' t too many to get through a four-year course. Circling over Paris whom should we see but EDITH BEACH. Her five children were all in good hands and with a sigh of relief she set out to pick up CORINNE I ' age Tioenty I BEDORE, England ' s most prominent woman politician. Her office as advocate for women suffrage on Mars has brought her world-wide fame. Paris was not long behind when we began to get hungry. No wonder — it was time for dinner. We couldn ' t have picked a lovelier town than Vienna. On the way to the restaurant whom did we see on the corner but of all people — MARJORIE POWELL — still shining shoes, this time in an endeavour to earn her fare to Australia for the reunion. On hearing her plight it occurred to us that RUTH TAYLOR intended to stop here later and she was travelling alone. Her brief business career had left her wealthy. Marjorie could get a ride with her. While we were dining we remembered that GRACE HILL lived a few blocks down the street. We decided we might as well drop in and see the new home she had been raving about. When we arrived she was all in a dither trying to decide which glass dress to wear. It was on the way back that we noticed a general store with a familiar name. Well what do you know? ELIZABETH PIATTI had set up a branch of her father ' s business. We were on our way again when someone honked their horn and on looking out who should go scooting past but AUDREY SHAW and as we expected there was Bluebell in her trailer ga2;ing contentedly about the sky. Even though she didn ' t make a success , as a Vet. she still has Bluebell. On the horizon we see the Taj Mahal. It is here that we learned that our friend MARGARET BAETZ is now chief songstress for the new Crown Prince of India. We also heard that JACKIE BRAYFIELD and LORRAINE CAUTHERS, un- successful in civili2;ed life, are teaching the alphabet to African natives. Imagine those two being missionaries! As we planned, we landed in Australia in the late afternoon. At the landing field we came upon PHYLTSS DICKENS, broken-hearted on leaving her husband even for just a day, but she was resigned to the fact that she would have to do it some day. The next person we met was LOUISE COLE and her mischievous youngster whom she couldn ' t afford to leave at home. As we burst into the hotel we encountered a conscientious and enthusiastic re- porter — MARION MACLEOD, representing her paper, the Timbuctoo Gazette. Trailing along behind her was a fellow newshawk — VIRGINIA RICHARDS, foreign correspondent on Jupiter. AUDREY BURWASH, still wearing her silver wings, was a pleasant sight until we heard she was in charge of the food. Someone seemed to think that just because she was Head Dietician of the Chemical Foods Corporation she was suited for the ticklish job of feeding her old classmates. Glancing around we were attracted by FAY FOUND ' S worried eyes. It turned out that she had forgotten to remind someone to feed the chickens. That was the only job her wealthy and efficient husband left in her hands. On our suggestion she headed for the door to phone home and in her hurry bumped into a newcomer. Well if It isn ' t SHIRLEY GRIFFITH. With oil paint on her cheek and brush still in her hand she called her greetings. As always her heart is in her art. Just as MARION KIRK was vividly describing her Slalom which she had at last accomplished in skiing (ever since she left school she has made Switzerland her home) in came JOAN THOMPSON and FAITH REEDS. Joan who is now teach- ing kindergarten in China had been patiently waiting for Faith who is conducting an O.L.C. group on political affairs of foreign countries and had had trouble finding accommodation for them. They were just in time for the entertainment. GENE CURRY, who had taken the afternoon off from her four-day tour around the world, sang for us. My what a voice! Another great songbird WINONA DEN YES of the Metropolitan Opera brought forth cheers and applause for her beautiful rendition of the Five O ' Clock Jump. All in all it turned out to be a very pleasant occasion. Page Twenty-one VALEDICTORY " No man is fit to take hold who is not cool as death. " These were words spoken by Abraham Lincoln at a time of crisis. These words apply to-day as we go out from the protection of our school life to prepare ovirselves for our tasks ahead. We realize the seriousness of the responsibility that will be ours and it calls for steadiness and a sureness of purpose. Golden with possi- bilities is the road that we may travel on the one hand; and dark with ruin is the road on the other. Never have there been such great opportunities for serving mankind. The youths of Europe and Asia have learned through their sufferings the need for a new world. We, in Canada, have suffered little in comparison, but does that mean we will be less conscious of our duty? The debt we owe to those who gave their lives that we might live and that war might never come again must be repaid by our sacrifices to create a new, united, peaceful world. But how are we to create this Utopian world? In the words of our King — " The greatness of any nation is in the spirit of its people. " Fear, hate, greed and self-seekmg in individuals leads to fear, hate, greed and self-seeking in nations. We must get rid of our own weaknesses. We must probe our prejudices, learn honesty, unselfishness, fair play and co ' operation. Many people seem to think it is the responsibility of our statesmen to build this new world, but we who are passing from this school know it is our responsi- bility. We must bend all our energy and faith to the shaping of the future. Here at O.L.C. we have been conscious of high standards of sportsmanship. We have learned fair play and we are accustomed to clean living. We have endured discipline and, although at times we could not see its immediate effect, we now see its benefits. The environment here has contributed a large share in the building of our characters. We have learned to appreciate the beauty of nature, illustrated so well in our spacious campus. Long after we leave our Alma Mater, we will retain the memory of the scarlet maple trees in the Autumn, the snow-covered evergreens in the Winter and the glorious orchards and purple lilacs in the Spring. The daily Chapel and Sunday evening services have constituted a most im- portant part of our character building. As a result of these services, we have been inspired to more serious thinking. To win the better world, we must learn how to live together, applying those inner attributes of democracy which are creative and co-operative, not self-centred, but based upon team spirit, and in a school of this kind with our friendly associa- tions we have the opportunity to put these things into practice and to learn from our close contact with other people how to apply the Golden Rule. The patient and attentive leadership of the members of the faculty has been ap- preciated by us. We would like to thank Dr. Carscallen and Miss Sissons for the guidance and understanding they have shown us this past year. Our teachers have confidence in us and we will try to live up to their expectations. In closing, I would like to remind you of an important challenge given us by King George VI in his " V-E Day " message — ■ " Let us take up our work again resolved as a people to do nothing unworthy of those who died for us and to make the world such a place as they would have desired for their children and for ours. " We, the Graduating Class of ' 45, pledge ourselves to give our minds and our efforts to create the New World of which we have talked and dreamed so long, but which now we must devote all our energies to bring into being. Page Twenty-lioo THE SENIOR DINNER On Friday evening, April 13, the Seniors were honoured at their annual dinner. The Senior table was decorated in the class colours, blue and gold. The sterling silver spoons in the traditional pine tree pattern, the gift of the Juniors, were attached to the end of streamers radiating from vases of yellow roses in the centre of the table. The tables of the other classes were decorated with flowers in their own colours. The food was delicious and our thanks went out to Mrs. Harshaw for making the dinner such a success. The programme carried out through the banquet consisted of toasts and responses interlinked with class songs and yells. Dr. Carscallen as toastmaster opened with a short speech after which a toast was proposed to the King. The toasts which followed were exceptionally good and aptly responded to.

THE SENIOR AT HOME On the stroke of eight-thirty the blushing Seniors rustled their way down the stately Main Hall Stairs to greet their " ' Prince Charmings " , many of whom were from Pickering College. After passing through the receiving line consisting of Dr. and Mrs. Carscallen, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, Miss Sissons, Miss Lick, the class teacher, and Corinne Bedore, the class president, we entered the attractive gymnasium gaily decorated with blue and blue streamers. On either side of the five-piece orchestra were large crests of Pickering College and O.L.C. There followed a delightful programme which included several novelty dances. At eleven o ' clock we withdrew to the candle-lit Common Room for a delicious supper, which left everyone floating on a cloud and wishing to dance the whole night through. But alas, all good things must end sometime; and at 1 o ' clock the reluctant good ' byes were said, and the weary but happy Seniors tripped off to bed, all convinced it had been one of the most enjoyable times during their O.L.C. days. Page Twenty-three SENIOR PLAY This year the school was honoured with not one or two plays, but four, all vary ing in nature. " No Followers Permitted " , a light comedy of the early eighteen hundreds was the first item of the play bill. The next skit " Seven to One " , as the title would sug- gest, told of the manpower shortage and the hard life that eight unfortunate college girls live. Next we came to a dramatic skit, entitled " Between Trains " , in which Annie, a poor girl who was to be married, missed her train and with it all prospects of her future happiness. By the aid of kindly Judge Mowbrey, Mrs. Flaherty, the good- hearted station agent, who exhibited so much busybodyism and Gloria, a tough, but tender-hearted girl, a train was flagged, her fiance arrested and held for her, and Annie was sent merrily on her way with Gloria ' s new Fall outfit. The last but not least important play, " Peace, It ' s Wonderful " , was a humorous character sketch of the Parsons family, with all their domestic trials. Between these plays we were favoured with vocal solos by Gene Curry and Winona Denyes, and piano and violin solos by Margaret Baetz and Sheila Bamford. A prize, oifered by Miss Sissons to the girl who, in the estimation of the audience, exhibited the best acting ability, was won by Douglas Gorman. After the singing of the Class song and the presentation of flowers to Miss Sissons and Miss Lick in appreciation of all the time and energy expended in the direction of these plays, refreshments brought another happy evening to a close. ALUMNAE TEA The Seniors spent an enjoyable afternoon when the Castle Chapter of the Alumnae entertained them at a delightful tea at O.L.C. It was a great pleasure and privilege to have an opportunity to meet some of the old graduates and learn a little of the various chapters of the Alumnae, of which of course, we all hope to be members some day. CHURCH OF THE BAY On June ?, at the very kind invitation of the Rev. Mr. Langford, of St. John ' s Anglican Church, Port Whitby, the Seniors attended the morning service. Mr. Lang- ford gave a very inspiring address to the Graduating class and the lovely service will stand out in our memories for many years to come. Elaine Kaumeyer sang a beautiful solo, " Green Pastures " , accompanied on the organ by Marjorie Powell. BACCALAUREATE SUNDAY Beautifully decorated by the Juniors with white flowers and ribbon, th e Whitby United Church was once again the scene of our Baccalaureate service. The graduating class was greatly impressed by Rev. Arthur Organ ' s sermon, " Ye are not your own. Ye are bought with a price. Therefore . . . . " After returning home by the highway, we entered Main hall and passed between the lines of fellow students singing the traditional hymn. During refreshments served in the Common room the girls had an opportunity to meet Mr. Organ. Page Tiventy-foiir CLASS DAY Bright and early on Monday morning June 11th, 27 happy Seniors, accompanied by Miss Lick, made their way to the creek for the annual Senior Breakfast Party. It was not long before the fire was blazing and the girls were busily cooking their bacon and eggs. Having made gluttons of themselves they returned to the school to make preparations for the afternoon exercises. At 3 o ' clock the Seniors, garbed in caps and gowns, made their way via the Main hall and Loggia to the concert hall, where their biographies and class prophecies were read and the valedictory given. The girls were honoured to receive their graduation pins from Miss Maxwell. On behalf of the Senior Class the president presented to Dr. Carscallen a sum of money for the purchasing of a ping-pong table. After the singing of the class and school songs the school stood as the Seniors withdrew. In the evening the school gathered around the bonfire while the Seniors, reciting very witty poems, burned their pet aversions among their text books. COMMENCEMENT DAY Commencement Day! What memories these words recall! This was the the crowning triumph of the year ' s achievement foi the members of the Graduating Class. The seventy-first Commencement Day was arrayed in the glorious sunshine that seems to accompany all important events at O.L.C. At two o ' clock in the afternoon the guests were all assembled in the Concert Hall. The graduates filed down the aisle and took their seats on the platform. They all looked very charm- ing in their white dresses and with their lovely bouquets of red roses. The Rev. A. D. Cornett of Oshawa gave the invocation, and Dr. Carscallen made the opening remarks. Then came the awarding of the diplomas, medals, and scholarships. Musical numbers contributed by senior piano and vocal students and by ,Mr. Atkinson ' s Choral Class varied the programme. After the granting of diplomas the very impressive Valedictory address was dehvered by Elaine Kaumeyer. Following the presentation Professor J. D. Robins of Victoria University, Toronto, gave the Commencement address. His excellent sense of humour was so cleverly combined with his more serious thoughts that everyone was held deeply interested throughout. After the singing of the School Song a garden party was held on the lawn. Re- freshments were served by the Juniors and everyone had a most enjoyable time. Then came the time to say good-bye. It was not easy for the members of the Graduating Class to look at their school for the last time, but every graduate left feeling a deep sense of gratitude for the sound instruction she had received and the good fellowship she had enjoyed at her kindly Alma Mater. Page Twenty-five MAY DAY This year May Day dawned dismally on a Thursday but, as O.L.C. would have it, the skies had cleared and our spirits had risen by the time ten-thirty had rolled around and we had gathered in the Concert Hall. Many guests were present and the chairman for the occasion was Mr. T. G. Rogers, President of the Board of Directors. We were very glad to have Miss Maxwell with us for the day. Dr. Marion Milliard of Toronto gave a most thoughtful and entertaining address on " The Woman of Tomorrow. ' Edith Beach was chosen May Queen by popular vote and Corinne Bedore and Judith Montgomery-Moore were her Counsellors. Dr. Milliard crowned our Queen and the ceremony was very beautiful and impressive. In the afternoon the traditional picnic was greatly enjoyed and in the evening the movies were a special treat. Page Twenty-six Initiation The publication of the Year Book would he incomplete without an account of the very first and probably the most dreaded of all the events of the school year — initiation. When the fateful morning dawned we found all " recruits " wandering aimless- ly around the dining hall in costumes of varied hues and make-up under the scrutinizing and over joyous eyes of the " old Girls. " The Old Girls lived a life of ease all day while the New Girls performed the drudgery of shoe polishing and bed-making. It was a long and arduous day and will not be soon forgotten, especially by the New Girls. The Hallowe ' en Party In keeping with the tradition of Hallowe ' ens, black cats, ghosts and witches haunted the halls of O.L.C. on Friday evening, November the third. The evening began with a delicious dinner provided by Mrs. Harshaw and her staff. The guests arrived about eight o ' clock and the programme, with Dr. D. R. Fletcher as Chairman, was opened with a Grand March of all the students in costume. The costumes were judged by Miss A. A. Maxwelh Miss Dorothy Maher and Mr. R. Grobb. A short programme was presented which included a piano and vocal solo by Winona Denyes and a violin solo by Sheila Bamford. The Dramatic Club, under the direction of Mrs. Aymong, presented a play " Miss Sydney Carton " which was greatly enjoyed by everyone and which brought the party to a close. Prizes awarded : — Most beautiful costume: Marilyn Davis — Cinderella. Most original group: Judith Montgomery-Moore and Marilyn Crang — a painter at work with his painting. Most comical costume: Estelle Fluet — a cat. Most comical group: Corinne Bedore, Grace Hill, Sheila Bamford and Violet Dixon — firemen complete with ladder and equipment. The Christmas Pageant The annual Christmas Pageant was one of the most joyous events in the school year. Christmas carols were strenuously rehearsed under the capable and entertaining leadership of Mr. G. D. Atkinson. On the great night itself the dining-room was beautifully decorated with dainty pink and blue angels, evergreen boughs and candles which created a very effective atmosphere. The only light was that of the candles. Several members of Mr. Atkinson ' s Choir from Toronto, members of the Board of Directors and other friends were our guests. The main feature of the evening was the Boar ' s Head Procession. This was led by the very agile Jester and then followed by the Bowman, Cook, and Bearers carrying the Boar ' s Head, the Cantor, Candle Lighter, Minstrels, the Three Kings with Pages, King Wenceslaus, Page, Peasant and the dancers. During the delicious dinner, especially planned by Mrs. Harshaw, we were entertained with musical and novelty numbers by the visiting choir and members of the school. After dinner the tables were cleared and everyone gathered to see, first, the Nativity Pageant on Main Hall Staircase, and then a play, " Babouschka, " by the Dramatic Club in the Concert Hall. The evening drew to a close all too soon, but it was indeed a memorable occasion. Page Twenty-seven Dramatic Club Under the very capable direction of Mrs. Aymong, the members of the Dra- matic Club feel that they have had a most worth-while year. Their efforts to entertain have been gratefully appreciated. During the year two plays were pre- sented, namely " Miss Sydney Carton " for the Hallowe ' en entertainment and " Little Women " in April. The members of the Dramatic Club were well represented at the Junior and Senior Recitals where abilities and accomplishments were seen at their height. The Friday Evening Concerts Throughout the year there have been many concerts given by distinguished performers. For our first concert we were honoured with a recital by Miss Lillian Smith, sopano, from the Toronto Conservatory of Music. To comment on each concert individually would be impossible but the mention of the dance recital given by Mrs. Ruth Cook, the readings given by Mrs. Phoebe McKellar and Junior Readers from the Toronto Conservatory of Music, a piano recital very graciously presented by Minuetta Schumiacher and the magic of Mr. Sid Lorraine ' s prestidigation is ample to recall to our memory the enjoyment of our Friday evening entertainments. Okticlos Club Under the presidency of Winona Denyes, the meetings of the Okticlos Club were resumed this year. Many enjoyable evenings of music were spent during the year. The activities of the Club for the year were successfully concluded in a tea at which Mrs. Atkinson graciously spoke to the girls. Choral Class Some mention should be made concerning the excellent Choral Class we have had this year. Although the class began at a late date, creditable progress was made under the guiding hand of Mr. Atkinson and his assistant Miss Lick. The first public appearance of the choir was at the Sherbourne Street United Church in Toronto, where it was warmly received. A second appearance was made at the Whitby United Church, and on Commencement Day the choir con- tributed several numbers to the programme. Their repertoire consisted mostly of hymns, such as " Worship " , " Jesu Joy of Man ' s Desiring " , " Great Jehovah " , and " Lift Thine Eyes " , and in lighter vein Grieg ' s " My Johann " . Junior Recital On Friday evening, June the eighth, the Junior Recital of Music and Poetry was presented in the Concert Hall. This was the first of many events of Com- mencement Week and the very appreciative audience was impressed with the advancement made by the students. The programme was brought to a close with the school singing " Dear Old Trafalgar. " Senior Recital The Senior Recital was held on Saturday evening, June the ninth at eight p.m. It was an overwhelming success and the varied programme was met with enthusiasm. There were some very interesting performances — organ, piano, and singing presentations and a few excellent pieces by the Dramatic students. The programme culminated with a piano number for eight hands which was a fitting climax to such a delightful musical evening. Page Twenty-eight The Robert Thompson Public Speaking Con+esf The Public Speaking Contest this year was an interesting event and an ex- cellent display of oratorical talent. The first prize in the Junior Group was award- ed to Dixie Wansborough who spoke on the subject " Arctic Inhabitants " and in the Senior Group first prize was awarded to Faith Reeds who very intelligently spoke on the method of " How to Choose a Husband " , much to the amusement of the unusually attentive audience. The other contestants were Gloria Endleman, Mary Stinson, Rhonda Markus, Barbara Creeper and Elaine Kaumeyer. The difficult task of adjudicating was carried out by Miss L. A. Gillard, Rev. A. G. Channen and Mr. E. H. Graham. There were interludes of music and the evening was enjoyed by everyone. Page Twenty-nine First Row. left to rigin — litila Bamluid, Mib! . ibsuns, Ur.

HONOUR CLUB Every school realizes the importance of having some sort of organisation in which is vested the task and responsibility of setting up a certain standard by which the students are to abide. With this thought in mind, the Honour Club of the College was formed in 1918, at a time when the girls realized, as never before, their individual responsibility. Emerson said, ' ' Self ' trust is the essence of valour. " This quotation, along with the club motto, " He conquers who conquers himself, " well illustrates the aims of the Honour Club — to teach its members honour, self ' control, school and community responsibility, to encourage the girls to live up to the standards of loyal- ty and good scholarship, and above all to promote self-trust in the individual. Page Thirty Front — Grace Hill. Back (left to right) — Lorraine Cauthers. Miss Beno, Jackie Braytield. STUDENT CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT The S.C.M. Council had this year the very able assistance of Miss Beno as advisory teacher. As is customary here at O.L.C., the Bazaar was held just prior to the Christmas holidays. We were fortunate indeed in having Miss Maxwell open it for us. The donations, patronage and work of many girls helped to make the Bazaar a real success. Coming at that time of the year, many of the articles were suitable Christmas gifts and the spirit of Christmas made it a happy day for all. Our visit to the Old People ' s Home came shortly after the Bazaar, when we took small gifts and the Choir sang many lovely Christmas carols. We were very fortunate this year in having so many interesting speakers at our Sunday night Chapel services, and, if it were not for the Chapel services con- ducted every morning by Miss Sissons and Dr. Carscallen, we would indeed feel that something was missing from our day. The money which we have raised this year will enable us to help in many worthwhile causes. At Christmas time we gave to the Star Santa Claus Fund and, of course, we must not forget the cot which we support in a China mission. Page Thirty-one Front — Judy Moore. Back — Jocelyn Cole, Miss Bertram, Audrey Shaw. Page Thirty-two Our field of sports this year has not been as full as in other years, mainly he- cause of very bad weather conditions. Thus, instead of spending most of our time outdoors on our splendid playmg field, on our tennis courts or large campus, the weather man compelled us to remain indoors. But on the whole we should not complain, for we have certainly enjoyed our athletic year here at O.L.C. and in future years we can look back with thankfulness on our physical training, which has been under the excellent supervision of Miss Bertram. Basketball When we old girls arrived back in the Fall, we were delighted to sec so many new basketball enthusiasts in our midst. This enthusiasm never died out during the whole basketball season. We were successful in our games with Whitby High School, but not quite so successful with Havergal. We certainly enjoyed the hospitality we received when we played both schools and enjoyed the games whether we won or lost, for these games taught us better sportsmanship, team play and fairness. We, the old O.L.C. basketball team, wish the future basketball teams much success in their future matches. FIRST BASKETBALL TEAM First Row, left to rigfit — Edith Beacli, Jean Hurst, Marilyn Crang (Captain), Corinne Bedore, Judy Moore. Second Row — Marion Kirk, Grace Hill, Audrey Shaw. Page Thirty-three Badminton Out went our basketball season, but immediately in came badminton which drew in a great number of enthusiasts from the Elementaries to the Faculty. Tourna- ments were entered with great eal and brought forth many participants. Swimnning On March 9 O.L.C. crowded around the swimming pool to witness the annual acquatic meet, which we considered a great success. Our heartiest thanks go out to our visiting judge, Miss Mackie, and due thanks go to our efficient Art Department for furnishing the decorations which added atmosphere to our dis- play. Our English guest, Noreen Walsh, captured the top honours of the meet. Tennis With our tennis season, which was much interrupted by bad weather, we end our athletic year at O.L.C. There was little pleasure watching the tournaments come round for we knew that our sports ' year was over. However, we put on the final seal with keen competition. This has finished our sports ' year and we, who will not be returning in the Fall, hand over our pool, tennis courts, gym, archery target and spacious campus to the girls of next year, and hope that they will get as much pleasure and know- ledge out of them as we did Stra+hcona Shield This year ' s winner of the Strathcona Shield, awarded to the girl who, in the estimation of her fellow-students, ranks first in a combination of academic and sports- manlike qualities, was Audrey Show. Audrey is completing her Upper School work this year and has been outstanding in every line of sjjort. Page Thirty-four THE GHOST OF O.LC. Once upon a time a girl, named Barbara cle Vmcy dc Vincy Smith graced the fair institution know as Ontario Ladies ' College. Now, Barbara, as we shall call her, was homely, eccentric and beyond all doubt, a genius. She lived apart from the rest of the students in a fnisty little world of art, and, just to be correctly dressed and in the right mood for inspiration to come, she often appeared in strange, unearthly garb. One day Barbara (who was studying Latin) appeared in a flowing Grecian gown. During the day she fell into a hot and strong argument with some pupils about ghosts. Declaring that she could, and would, return after death, Barbara angrily turned to leave the room and — alas and alack! — tripped over her flowing Grecian gown, struck her head on a desk, and lay quite still and quite dead. Poor Barbara, and poor bystanders! Mostly, poor Barbara! Very shortly after this, students began to hear strange noises and to speak of a ghostly white figure. A janitor was frightened into imbecility by a spectre which chased him all over the school. Horror of horrors! The faculty had an emergency meeting. Such scandal! A ghost at O.L.C. The members tried to suspend her from school but she appeared on Monday afternoon. They closed school on Tuesday and tried to smoke her out, but the Fire Department objected. Wednesday, Barbara appeared again, and all Thursday the Faculty tore its collective hair and stayed in conferences. Finally, a decision was reached. Late on Thursday night, the Faculty collected in the Common Room, followed by Madame Zanzi and her Ouija board. Madame Zan i consulted Ouija and called " Barbara! Barbara de Vincy de Vincy Smith, where are you? " Suddenly the door flew open and a figure dressed in a flowing gown appeared, tripped and hurtled into the room. It was Barbara! The Faculty scolded, then threatened Barbara They coaxed and begged but Barbara paid no attention to them. Then someone had a bright idea. Barbara could stay, if she would be visible only at night. Barbara agreed. The meeting was adjourned, Barbara disap ' peared, and the story was kept out of the papers. Now, you may not believe this story. I wouldn ' t blame you, for it happened years ago, and, of course, if you ask the Faculty they deny any knowledge of it. But if you will go to the practice rooms some dark stormy night, and wait, per- haps behind the piano, you will meet Barbara de Vincy de Vincy Smith — officially approved ghost of O.L.C. Roberta Rankin Grade IX Page Thirty eighl DON ' T GROW UP Libby was nine. If you didn ' t know she was nine, you could never guess it. She had straight blond hair, China-blue eyes and a shy smile that came out when you weren ' t expecting it. She wasn ' t very tall and was rather frail. She was the kind of little girl who went out to play in a clean pinafore and who came in with it still clean; whose hair never got messed or whose hair-ribbon never came untied. Libby had been nine since last May but in her heart she was only seven. She had been seven when Ross went away. She still remembered that day. It had been one of those crisp November days when everything crackled — the air, the rusty leaves underfoot. Even the birds ' songs had seemed laconic. Ross had come down the stairs so proudly and so erect in his uniform. Libby had been standing ' at the bottom, watching him, and holding his hat. He had ruffled her hair and, ducking his head the way he always did to shake back his hair he put on his hat. Then he kissed her hard. " So long, honey, " he had said. " Write me a letter sometime — and, baby, don ' t grow up till I come back. " Then he had gone out quickly with mom and daddy, who had taken him to the station. Libby hadn ' t gone. She had had to go to school. That was two years ago. An eternity! If it were not for his picture on the piano she could almost forget what he looked like. Almost — . Libby tried hard not to grow up, but now she could hardly get into the dresses she had worn two years ago. No matter how hard she tried, the same games just didn ' t interest her now. And now Ross was dead. (That was a horrible word — so final!) He wouldn ' t be back. She knew. Her mother hadn ' t told her, but she knew. That day the telegram came she had seen her mother ' s face and later, her father ' s face. And now things were different — the way they said, " Ross was, " instead of " Ross is, " and the way they looked at his picture. And, of course, that parcel that had come from Italy — that was Ross ' things. She knew that too. Libby stood in the doorway of her mother ' s bedroom. Her mother was going out. She always asked Libby which dress she should wear and Libby always said the blue taffeta one that matched her mother ' s eyes, and she was glad. Libby looked at the picture of Ross in his uniform with his hat on, on her mother ' s desk. Suddenly she said, " Ross is dead, isn ' t he, mother? " Her mother looked startled for a moment and then crossed the room to where Libby stood, " Yes, dear, he is, " she said quietly. " I guess we should have told you. How long have you known, Libby? Oh. Libby, honey, is that what — ? Baby, don ' t cry. " But she did. Between the sobs she told her mother about how she just couldn ' t stop growing — how she had tried but just couldn ' t stop. Her mother stroked her head and whispered close to her ear. " Of course, you couldn ' t stop growing, dear, and Ross wouldn ' t have wanted you to. He meant you to stay sweet, to stay his little girl — not to grow up and forget him. He didn ' t mean you to stay seven. " Daddy called from downstairs and mother answered, " Yes, dear, " the way she always did, kissed the top of Libby ' s head and told her it was bed-time. She tucked her in, turned out the light and Libby heard her dress whisper along the floor as she went out. Libby got up and looked at Ross ' picture. Suddenly she felt nine. Then she went back to bed.

JOCELYN Cole, Home Economics AN EXCITING DAY V-E Day was one of the most exciting days that I can remember. Downtown Toronto was quiet at 7.30 a.m., and at 9.00 people were talking with a little more laughter in their voices. I wondered what was making people happy. Then one man said, " They expect it will come in the next two hours. " Then I knew V ' E Day was coming! At 11.30 bells began to ring. In our office women cried; men slapped each other on the back, and I could not say a word. I went to the wini ow and looked down on Bay Street. Never in my life have I seen such a sight. Street cars stopped. People milled through the streets, waving handkerchiefs and flags. Everyone was happy. Some of the more thoughtful people stared at the sky and their lips moved in a solemn prayer of thanksgiving. Soon no one could stare at the sky. Bombers were flying over, dropping confetti. A soldier with a crutch and a wooden leg stood near me. In his eyes shone bright tears. A young woman stood beside him. I heard him say, " Dear God, help me to remember the poor devils that didn ' t make it: help me to remember my buddies who died for me. " The woman beside him cried. Then they mingled in the crowd. That event is what stands out in my memory of that exciting day — more than any other. It helped me to be more thoughtful. It helped me to give thanks to God. Beverley Stewart, Grade IX.
