VOX COLLEGE " Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit " Vol. LIX Whitby, June, 1949 No. 1 Content Dr. and Mrs. S. L. Osborne - - - . 2 i Foreword v 3 Editorial Staff 4 Editorial - 5 Faculty and Staff 6 The Graduating Class 7 Senior Class Song 8 The Senior Class ... 9 Valedictory - 13 Senior Class Prophecy 14 Calendar of Events 15 Class Pictures 27 Sports 36 Literature ------- 53 jforetoorb The VOX COLLEGII welcomes DR. AND MRS. OSBORNE The Vox Collegii takes pleasure in dedicating this number to Dr. and Mrs. Osborne who are completing their first year at OLC, a successful and significant year, and, we feel confident, an earnest of many more to come. The College is certainly fortunate that, when the inevitable time came for us to bid a reluctant farewell to Dr. and Mrs. Carscallen, the Board of Directors knew where to look for capable successors to such exacting posts. Nowhere surely could they have found a more versatile Principal than Dr. Osborne. Already a man of wide experience as a minister, musician, and director of young people ' s work, on coming to the College he demonstrated at once that he is also a competent organizer, business administrator, farmer, and teacher. Like Roman Cato he first studies each new task minutely, then goes about its execution with confidence and despatch. In atnaz- ingly short order he has mastered every angle of the work, and there is no doubt that he ivill soon have won a fine reputation in the field of education, far beyond the bounds of OLC. " Charming ' and " gracious " were the advance reports of Mrs. Osborne and she has surely fulfilled them. Better still, we have found that the qualities so described are by no means superficial, but spring from a ivarmly friendly nature. The girls feel that she really is their friend, that she sees and understands their point of view, which is perhaps not surprising as she is so close to being a girl herself. There is no doubt that Dr. and Mrs. Osborne have a busy life ahead at OLC. The Vox Collegii hopes that it will also be a happy one. Muriel H. Sissons Page Three I ' ttifi ' Four etritorial Graduation is over, and you, the graduates, leave the shelter of this school to face an unknown future. For some, you hope to begin a career immediately, or enter university, for others there is still time left to think . . . but one and all, you have a place to fill in this distorted world of today. That place is vacant, and is calling you; but the preparation, co-operation and hard work that goes with it, is not easy. But some time in the future we must and will see a peaceful world. " That ' s easy, " you say, meaning easy for you to leave it to the next person. After all, there are many billions of people, but again, billions of these people need you. Then don ' t shirk your responsibility by this attitude. There are countless occupations, and careers which may be followed. For in the rebuilding of the war-ridden countries, disease, malnutrition and perpetual fear rule supreme. Our gen- eration is responsible for the outcome of events in the years to follow. We cannot depend upon our friends across the seas, whose physical health is undermined, and whose minds are instilled with the worst of political poison. Building a better tomorrow lies with us, who have enjoyed the better things of life. When you leave your Alma Mater, turn towards the future, your future and the world ' s. Have knowledge of present condi- tions, and prepare yourself to take an active part to fill that vacancy, and unite in setting us on the road to normality and happiness. Good luck to all in the coming year. P. J. A. Page Five Page Six.

It won ' t be easy to walk down these steps and away from our friends, our school — and a home. Did all the others feel this way, those names and faces in old year books, those initials on the desks, those others who from year to year have shaped the spirit and the soul of our school, and in so doing have gained themselves both in knowledge and in friendship? On our seventy-fifth anniversary we look back and wonder about our predecessors. Who sat in our seat in study hall? Who roomed in our room, and the one across the hall? Who first called push push? Sometimes we meet an old girl from recent or from long past years, and always there is some link, call it sentiment, call it spirit, call it tradition, but it ' s there, and we ' re grateful. We ' re grateful because we know it must exist for us too. There have been hollows and hills in our life here, as there must be in all life, but, with the perspective gained from looking back, the hollows seem less deep, and the hills still shine in the sunlight. Nor is the picture a mere landscape. It is dotted with the well known faces of teachers who despite sometimes strenuous op- position have given us patiently of their time, experience, and knowledge, and with the faces of friends whom we have learned to cherish in our days at O.L.C. When we walk down the broad main stair, past the common room and study hall, and as we say good-bye to the crouching lions, we will face our life better prepared and equipped because of this dear school. Thank you, Trafalgar, thank you .... Peggy Grant REGRETS . . . AND CONGRATULATIONS We shall sadly miss next year several members of Faculty and Staff who have been for some years our valued friends and contributed much to the life we share. Our best wishes for their happiness in pastures new go with Miss Weller, Miss Hill, Miss Wickham, Miss Carr, Miss McLean and our own ' Joanie ' Jones. We cannot help a feeling of pride in that a member of the faculty of OLC has been appointed Principal of Hatfield Hall, our sister school in Cobourg. Miss Weller ' s many talents will find full scope in her responsible position and we feel sure of her success. Congratulations, Hatfield! But just wait for the basketball season, Miss Weller! We ' ll be seeing you. Page Thirteen SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY The Time: June 1969 The Place: O.L.C. The Cast: Well, just wait a minute and you ' ll hear about them. We ' re standing on the spacious lawns of O.L.C. in front of the Chapel, a very impressive part of the building that was added to it somewhere about the year 1950. The door opens and a radiant bride floats out, her head in the clouds. She is a very charming girl who goes by the nickname of Tubby, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Hill of Ottawa. She is attended by the daughter of Joyce Leach who invented a method of writing shorthand in your sleep so as to record your dreams. And now the guests are enjoying a reception in the form of a garden party. We understand the catering is done by Pat Gilchrist, eminent dietitian and food specialist. She has just finished a new book for brides " The Art of Cooking, or How to Finish Your Husband in a Day. " That girl over there by the lilacs must be six feet four, at least. The studious type — she hates men. My, but she certainly takes after her mother, Nancy Boake. Some more people are joining the happy group congratulating the bride. We forgot to mention that the groom was Don Fleet Jr., son of the former Miss Pat Wickham. Mrs. Fleet is beginning to look a little worn with such a large family to keep her busy, but she still manages to do ten push-ups before breakfast every morning. One of the guests in this group looks very prosperous and is carrying a black bag. She is tailed by a vigorous looking woman wearing a clerical collar. You ' ve guessed it — Dr. Piggy Grunt and Deaconess McKim, May Queen of 1949. " Hello, everybody, how are you? Isn ' t it a wonderful day for a wedding? I just love weddings! " Now who could this be? Eleanor Carleton, maybe? We hear she ' s a school teacher in Peterboro, now. Look at that little boy over there by the food. He ' s just finished demolishing cakes, cookies, ice cream, candies and punch, and is beginning to look a little green about the gills. His name, he says, is Charlie, and he wants to find his granny, Barbara Rowe. She rushes him to the kindly school nurse, Shirley Langdon. Miss Langdon administers a new stomach-ache remedy, consisting of mustard and warm water, put out by the brilliant lab. technician, Mme. Marie (Curie) Stovel. The exquisite gowns of the bride and attendants were designed by Madame Marilyn Jaques, renowned fashion designer, voted one of the ten best dressed women in the universe. The soloist was Nancy Pickering, internationally famous television singer, who comes to you every morning at breakfast time to remind you to munch your crunchie-wunchies. The little girl with the curly hair eating an apple is the daughter of Sally Fisher, Physical Torture teacher at Burlington High School. In a huddle under the marquee Mary Lou Affleck, Anne Sinclair and Freddie Fee, who graduated in Pass Arts just seventeen years ago, are comparing notes on the fatal step which followed. The crowd parts as a horse comes galloping up the green. " Howdy, folks, " yells a grey-haired matron, well preserved for her forty years. This is Sylvia Skinner who owns a horse farm over in Oshawa. There ' s a noise in the air— the guests look up — no, it ' s not a bird but Lilia de la Torre, world famous artist, arriving fom South America in her helicopter. She is just in time to see a presentation made to the bride by a glamorous blonde gal, the Senior Class President of 1969 and daughter of the popular President of twenty years ago, Lynn Price. Behind a bush we hear the click-clack of a typewriter. The bedraggled charac- ter typing with two fingers is Jo Shone, recording the events of the day for the Times-Gazette, Jo Shoni; Page Fourteen CALENDAR OF EVENTS SUNDAY NIGHT SPEAKERS September 19th September 26th October 3rd October 17th October 24th October 31st November 7th - November 21st - November 28th - December 5th December 12th - January 16th January 23rd January 30th February 6th February 13th February 27th March 6th March 13th March 27th April 3rd April 10th May 1st May 8th May 15th May 22nd May 29th June 5th -Dr. Osborne -Dr. Osborne -Mr. Lawrence Purdy -Dr. Osborne -Mr. Donald Hooper -Miss Helen Fotheringham -Mrs. W.

Uniforms were badly distorted, faces had a few extra attractions, and there was an amazing display of obedience on the side of the new girls toward the old. The new members of faculty and Dr. and Mrs. Osborne kept us well amused during noon hour, and the penalties given to law breakers that evening completed the struggle for admittance of new- comers into O.L.C. HALLOWE ' EN PARTY This year ' s Masquerade made all those present certain that our traditional Hallowe ' en party is one to remember. The costumes were not only beautiful but showed great originality. The prizes were awarded to (1) Sandra Dubin as a Dancing Dutch Girl, adjudged the most beautiful costume. (2) Barbara Rowe as Superman, naturally the most original. Page Sin teen (3) Ginny King as Humpty Dumpty, most comical get-up. (4) Rita Donaldson and Jodie Alexander, the best pair, attractively and suit- ably attired as Planter ' s Peanuts. (5) Great artistic ability, as well as originality won the prize as the best group for the " Egyptian Burial, " enacted by No. 1 Main — Lilia de la Torre, Anne Sinclair, Marie Stovel, Henrietta Wilkinson. After the Grand March, the Dramatic Club, under the direction of Miss Black- stone, gave a pleasant ending to the evening and made for themselves a wonderful start for the year. THE CHRISTMAS DINNER The festive atmosphere that prevails during the Yuletide season begins in the hearts of the OLC girls each year on the evening of our Christmas dinner The guests, faculty and students entered the beautifully decorated dining room while the choir sang, " The Seven Joys of Mary " . The Candlelight Procession followed to the singing of the Cherry Tree Carol. Then the traditional Boar ' s Head Procession carried the famed Boar ' s Head to the table, and dinner began. Carols were sung during and after the meal. Two of the old favourites " We Three Kings " and " Good King Wenceslas " were made into short playlets. During the singing of " Silent Night " the school and guests left the dining hall and went into the Main Hall where a tableau " The Crib " was presented under the direction of Miss Weller. Back in the Concert Hall, a play " Once Upon a Christ- mas " was enacted by the Dramatic Club under the direction of Miss Blackstone. As the curtain fell on another of our Christmas Dinners a cheerful Yuletide spirit prevailed. THE SENIOR DINNER On Friday evening, April 29th, our Graduating Seniors were the honoured guests at the school ' s annual Senior Dinner . The girls, lovely in their beautiful formals, enjoyed a delicious meal in a charmingly decorated dining hall. The Senior table was made exceptionally attrac- tive and interesting by a procession of tiny dolls in exquisite graduating gowns, the work of Rita Donaldson ' s clever fingers. The Seniors were delighted with these charming souvenirs. Following the dinner, clever and original toasts were proposed and replied to as follows: Proposed by Patricia Gilchrist Mary Lou Affleck jo Shone Anne Duncombe Anne Sinclair To Our Country Alma Mater Faculty and Staff Graduating Class Other Classes Response by Sylvia Skinner Lilia de la Torre Miss Sissons Lynette Price Patricia Hogan for the Juniors Joan Ferguson for the Mediums Isabell Faulkner for the Sophomores Dawn Myles for the Fresh- men Bettie Ann Spafford for the Elementaries Page Seventeen School Organizations Sally Fisher Peggy Grant for the Stu- dents ' Council Nancy boake for the S.C.M. Barbara Rowe for the A. A. Joanna Alexander for the Vox Collegii THE HONOUR CLUB (STUDENTS ' COUNCIL) The Students ' Council was enlarged still further this year to include the presi- dents of the junior classes and the vice-president of the Junior year. It was felt that in this way the Council could better serve the interests of the whole school. Meet- ings were held regularly, and supplemented from time to time by open meetings for the whole school, at which many problems were happily resolved. P.S. If future Councils are anything like as co-operative and well-conducted, the Dean will be happy indeed. M. H. S.

Page Eighteen STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION Our S.C.M. is a branch of the world-wide organization. As usual, this year the girls participated in Chapel Services and contributed to student relief, the Gren- fell Mission, and other charitable enterprises. The pre-Christmas Bazaar was very successful, and many of the objects for sale were the handiwork of the girls them- selves. Four of our members attended the conference at O.A.C. and came back with fresh interest and inspiration for all of us. The Student Christian Movement Conference The S.C.M. Conference was held on the weekend of January 22-23, at the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph. Shirley Langdon, Marilyn King, Pamela Tulk ' and Wendy McLaughlin repr esented the S.C.M. of O.L.C., and took up resi- dence at MacDonald Hall. After registering we went to the opening afternoon session which lasted from 2.30 until 10.30 with an interval of one hour for dinner. The programme during that period was as follows: 2.30-3.00 — Professor V. E. Devadutt who was an active member of the S.C.M. in India and is now a professor at the Serampore College, opened the meeting with the Bible text John 1:18, showing how God spolce to the world through Jesus Christ. 3.00-4.15 — An address by Dr. A. G. Mollegan, Professor of Christian Ethics at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia. He pointed out — " The natural reaction of our loving God should be that we love our fellow men. The reason why we are faced with wars is that man will not admit the presence of God and open his heart to Him. " 5.14- 5.30 — We then divided into four groups and discussed the Bible text which Professor Devadutt had chosen for one of the themes of the Conference. 5.30-6.30 — Supper. Eating with about 200 men! 6.30-7.30 — An address by Professor Devadutt taking for his theme " What is the Church? " Quoting from the Apostles ' Creed, he said: " The Church is One and Catholic. Underneath all divisions there is one; all divisions are a sin. " 7.30-8.15 — Singsong. 8.15- 9-15 — An address by the Reverend T. K. Chiu from Kunming, China, who is now serving as Assistant Minister in Glenview Presbyterian Church, Toronto. He spoke on " The Church Meeting the Needs of the World Today. " He told about conditions in China and the struggle between the Communists and Christian leaders. One of his most potent questions was " Have you decided what you are going to die for? Are you living every day with that purpose foremost in your mind? " 9-15-10.30 — We had a little lunch of cookies, ice-cream and coffee and then saw a film produced by Arthur Rank entitled " Faith Triumphant. " It was the very moving story of St. Paul testifying when he was put on trial for being a Christian. 10.30 — Miss Prang, the associate general secretary of the S.C.M. in Canada, who spoke to us in Chapel this year, closed that day ' s session with a prayer. After this we volunteered to assist in doing the dishes, during which time we met some very interesting people who took us back to our residence for the night. Programme for Sunday. 8- 8.30— Breakfast. 9- 11.00 — Bible Study, taking for our discussion Matthew 16. 11.00 — The regular College church service, with Dr. Mollegan giving the sermon. Page Nineteen THE S.C.M. 1949 Left to Right: Wendy McLaughlin (Vice-President), Miss McDowell (Faculty Advisor), Nancy Boake (President), Pamela Tulk (Secretary-Treasurer) 12.30— Lunch. 1- 2.00 — We were shown around the College grounds by our new acquaintances. 2- 3.00 — An address by the Rev. B. L. Oaten, Minister of Colbourne St. United Church, Brantford, with slides illustrating his life in the work camp in France. 3.30-4.00 — Three pianists including myself filled in this period to provide a time of relaxation (except for the pianists). 4-5.00 — An address by the Reverend Mr. Oaten telling how the church meets, or should meet, the needs of the Canadian people. 5.00 — Supper. Just enough time to catch the 6.05 bus back to school, after a very interesting and profitable weekend. All four of us agree in saying that we will never forget the words of those speakers, which will always be a great source of inspiration to us. M. C. McLaughlin DANCES The Holly Hop — November 26th It was wonderful! Almost unbelievable! The best morale lifter of the term! One of the largest dances to be held at O.L.C. — the Holly Hop, of course, With many thanks to its sponsors, our Senior Class, all the above is most certainly true. This year ' s Holly Hop was decorated with great swags of evergreen surround- ing the windows and hanging from the ceiling. The lighting consisted of three electric candles in each window and two six-foot ones up by the orchestra — all A ' uge Twenty thanks to the Art Department. This gave it an atmosphere which immediately started our train of thoughts running along the track to a most welcome destina- tion — home — and Christmas. O.L.C. At Home: The Athletic Association Dance — February 25th What a marvellous success it was! No grumbling or griping, just praise, and, as an afterthought, a sigh. That was our A. A. formal — the dance of the year. It has to turn out well and always does. The enthusiasm generated in the school was better than ever before, and all the graduates who returned for the occasion made the atmosphere even more pleasant. I am sure you would all like to give a hearty " thanks " to the Committee who made such an evening possible. Vox Collegii Dance — March 25th For the first time in the history of the school the Vox, our Year Book, spon- sored an informal dance in the Spring Term and we hope that it will be carried on as a tradition. It was a miraculous morale-lifter after the Easter exams., and a wonderful break in the long winter term. The girls cooperated and did a great deal to make it the success it was and we want to thank you all. STUNTS OF THE YEAR Old Girls ' Stunt — Sept. 24th " Dear Diary " — These words bring back many fond memories, especially of summer holidays, and the Old Girls in their stunt did some very realistic remin- iscing. They traced a summer romance, inserting all the favourite songs and did things I am sure every one of us did in real life during the summer months. The stunt was a great success and the girls did a good job of giving our traditional Friday night entertainments a wonderful beginning for our new school year. New Girls ' Stunt — Oct. 1st The New Girls gave us an excellent demonstration of their talents in the various skits they rolled into their stunt. We learned that an appendectomy can prove most interesting when per- formed behind a sheet by the light of a flashlight. A musical with an all negro cast was exceptionally good and the Carcamo sisters ' graceful ballet selection completed another successful new girls ' stunt. Senior Class Stunt — Jan. 21st This stunt was named " Ye Olde Skewl House. " The seniors put on a hilarious skit, each member of the class impersonating a pupil, parent or teacher of a few decades back. It was a great evening of laughter and fun. Junior and Medium Class Stunts The Mediums ' skits were hilarious and so-o-o-o-o- true, especially where radio programmes were concerned. The efforts of the Juniors were mostly musical, serious and otherwise. A ballet dance, solemn but beautiful, done by a group of juniors, made a striking finale for the evening. Freshman and Sophomore Stunts In the portrayal of the life of Stephen Foster, the two classes combined their musical talents and produced an enjoyable evening of song. The girls deserve a great deal of credit for the time and preparation spent on their show. Elementary Stunt Our elementaries kept up their usual high standard. All members of the class participated in two skits, one a comedy " Milady ' s Hat Shoppe " and the other a display of gymnastic ability and fun worked into a circus.

Williams OKTICLOS President — Rita Donaldson Vice-President — Hazel Mitchell Secretary-Treasurer — Henrietta Wilkinson Representatives — Pamela Tulk, Nancy Pickering, Wendy McLaughlin The Okticlos is our musical and dramatic organization, whose aim is to develop interest and appreciation. We are encouraged and helped by the suggestions of Mr. G. D. Atkinson, one of the school ' s leading music teachers. This year we were very happy to have Mr. Alex Read come to entertain us, together with his fiancee, Miss Patty-Lou Woodley. We enjoyed a delightful pro- gramme of his piano monologues, accompanied by his boundless wit, and Miss Woodley sang various numbers. Later, Mr. Read obliged us by playing informally in the gymnasium, where he satisfied our many requests. Afterwards, the Okticlos in turn entertained the artists with refreshments served in the Common Room. A highlight in our club is the junior and senior recitals, held during the last week of school, when music students have a chance to display their talents before the student body. Pttge Twenty-two Throughout the year we have had meetings and informal gatherings at which we discussed music with our honorary president, Mr. Atkinson. The girls work hard and are very cooperative under our capable president, Rita Donaldson, in making this organization a success and in advancing the fine arts of the college. EXTRA: EXTRA: MAXWELL HOUSE " MIDGETS " VS. FACULTY " DRIBBLERS " The drum sounded, and onto the floor they rushed, you guessed it, the Faculty — and what an assortment of uniforms, tunics, heels, long underwear, dungarees, p.j., and other items one cannot write down. Dr. Osborne in true white refereed and Freddy Fee umped. The whistle blew; the ball tried to reach centre . . . failed . . . teachers hugged the ball and ran ... no rules . . . the Dean stood in the balcony and ceremoniously dropped the ball into the basket . . . score for the teachers! The question rose . . . was it basketball, rugby, or hok us pokus? Cheering echoed from wall to wall under the capable leadership of Miss McDowell, while B. Rowe, P. Brook and M. L. Palmer yelled themselves hoarse for Maxwell. The " Midgets " suffered a loss of 15-9, but somehow were able to stay awake the next day in classes. And what of the Faculty? They certainly showed what marvellous sports they were, and a hilarious night was had by all. THE DRAMATIC CLUB The Dramatic year opened with a mystery play at Hallowe ' en, entitled " Noth- ing Ever Happens Here " and written by Miss Blackstone specially for the occasion. The second offering of the year " Once Upon a Christmas " closed the Christmas festivities at O.L.C. On Friday evening, February 11, three one-act plays: Her Highness the Cook, Archibald, and World Without Men, were staged in the Concert Hall under the direction of our teacher, Miss Blackstone. The Dramatic Club grew by leaps and bounds from September until the final production, and plans for the coming year include a three-act play, an evening of Shakespeare, and a Spring Review. MAY DAY May 24th is a date of importance in many countries, but it is one that will bring back particularly pleasant memories for any girl from OLC. For that is the day our May Queen is crowned and festivities are celebrated in her honour. The programme began in the Concert Hall where an interesting address on famous women was delivered by Mrs. Harold Bennett, who also recalled old days at OLC where she was once a member of the Faculty. Then the guests and school moved down to the front lawn. Under a threat- ening sky, but in a cheerful atmosphere, Mrs. Bennett crowned our May Queen, Audrey McKim of Toronto. The newly-crowned Queen and her Councillors, Win- nifred Fee and Lynette Price, proceeded to their place of honour, to watch the ex- ercises performed by the remainder of the girls. A downpour of rain in the middle of the exercises made it necessary to con- tinue the programme in the gymnasium. Under these trying conditions the excell- Page Twenty-three Photo by LeRoy Toll MAY QUEEN AND COUNSELLORS Left to Right: Lynette Price, Audrey McKim, Winnifred Fee. ence of the display was a great credit to the girls, and particularly to Miss Wickham who directed. However, the weather improved, and the graceful Maypole Dance concluded the ceremony on the lawn under a shining sun. That afternoon all students clambered on the buses to spend a few hours of fun at Orono Municipal Park. In the evening a movie was shown by Dr. Osborne, and thus one of the most cherished days at OLC was brought to a close. Pa%c. Tvtnnty-jour SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION 1874 - 1949 Believing that a fitting observance ought to be made in recognition of the 75th Anniversary of the Founding of the Ontario Ladies ' College, the Board of Directors set to work to plan for the event early in November of last year. A committee with Mr. G. M. Goodfellow as chairman was formed and organized for action. The dates of the celebration were set at June 5-8, so that the climax would coincide with the Commencement. Letters were written to every Alumna of the College whose address could be discovered. Articles appeared in the press to herald the events. Miss Annie Maxwell, former Dean of the College, was invited to pre- pare an historical sketch and this she did with inimitable artistry. Finally came the day. More than two hundred and twenty former students of the College returned. For three days the halls pealed with laughter and with excited ejaculations as friend greeted friend. Chief among all the events of those days was the sumptuous banquet held on the Tuesday evening. The President of the Board of Directors, Mr. T. G. Rogers, welcomed the guests, some of whom had travelled from as far as Bermuda. The Principal of the College announced the decision of the Board to proceed as rapidly as possible with the erection of a Chapel at the northern extremity of the College at a cost of $125,000, the base- ment to which would include three classrooms. Dr. Osborne also proclaimed the establishment of a Campaign Fund " which is instituted forthwith and which is now open to receive your most generous contributions " . The evening was brought to a memorable close when Mr. T. K. Creighton rose to unveil a splendid portrait of the Rev. Dr. C. R. Carscallen, Principal Emeritus of the College, and presented it to Dr. Carscallen. After prolonged applause, Dr. Carscallen thanked the Board for making this portrait possible and presented it in turn to the College. The portrait now hangs in the place of honour in the Common Room. For three quarters of a century this College has been one instrument in the Church training young women to take their places as Christian citizens in home and community. We believe that the future will hold the key to continuing prosperity. S. L. Osborne. CHURCH OF THE BAY A tradition is something that is treasured down the years. Graduates of OLC have many of these to look back upon. But one that will never be overlooked is that every year, on the Sunday morning preceding Baccalaureate Sunday, the Senior Class attends the morning service at the Church of the Bay, Port Whitby. One never forgets the peace and serenity found there in that tiny church set among the lofty pines. BACCALAUREATE SUNDAY It was a beautiful spring evening on Sunday, June 5th. That date means a great deal to the Graduates of 1949- For it was the Sunday the Seniors in cap and gown attended the annual Baccalaureate Service at Whitby United Church. An inspiring sermon by the Rev. Trevor Davies, D.D., an anthem by the choir, and a beautifully sung solo by Shirley Gormley, made the service memorable. On their return to the school, the graduates passed down Main Hall, the student body following them in twos, and the procession continued up Main Stairs singing the Baccalaureate Hymn, " Saviour, again to Thy Dear Name we raise . . " Page Twenty- five CLASS DAY Class Day dawned warm and clear and tranquil, and even before the morning mists had rolled away, the Senior Class was on its wa y to the lakeshore. By the time the waffles ' n ' stuff arrived (courtesy Miss Sissons ' Super-Transport Service), the fire was smoking briskly and appetites were well whetted. When fond memory brings the light of other days around us, this will certainly be forever one of the brightest rays. By noontime the Juniors had prepared the daisy chain, in fashionable choker length, and early in the afternoon the lovely traditional procession took place as the Graduates, linked by a chain as close as the friendship which now bound them after their year together, paced slowly through the silent ranks of the school, out of the Main Door and round through the Loggia into the Concert Hall for the Class Day ceremonies. As Anne Duncombe, Junior President, read her history and cut her free from the chain, each graduate took her place in the semi-circle on the platform. Then Jo Shone read the witty prophecy, Peggy gave her valedictory, and Lynn presented to Dr. Osborne the graduates ' gift to the school — a contribu- tion for new flags in the Chapel. Athletic awards were distributed by Miss Wickham and Barbara Rowe, and Miss Sissons gave out the graduate pins. In the evening a special programme took place — a combination recital and prize-giving, which was attended by many parents and friends, and former graduates who had returned in connection with the seventy-fifth anniversary re-union. As after this it seemed too late, the traditional burning of the books was postponed until the next night. COMMENCEMENT, 1949 Wednesday, June 8th brought for the graduates of OLC mingled feelings of joy, regret and a little fear. They were joyful because the honour of graduating for which they have worked so hard is theirs at last; regretful because they are leaving OLC, never again to be part of the student body; fearful because, standing on the threshold of life, they realize that they have duties and expectations that they must fulfill. The graduates in long white dresses and carrying red roses passed down the aisle to the platform where they received their diplomas. Awards were presented to the worthy winners, and the Valedictory, a very impressive speech, was given by Peggy Grant. A highly interesting address, spoken directly to the girls by the Honourable Mr. McRuer, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, was filled with helpful advice. At the close of the exercises guests and students went out to the Garden Party on the front lawn. But the happiest day of all was not yet ended. In the evening the graduates again walked the halls in their long white dresses, this time accompanied by their escorts, for the Grad. Dance was still to be. A coffee party started things off pleasantly. After dancing till 12.30 in the beautifully decorated dining hall, with former grads. and other students, the gradu- ates realized reluctantly the passing of one of the happiest and most cherished days of their lives.

The sun was shining and the tem- perature just right to fill everyone with vim and vigour. There was certainly great interest, as each event had a large number of participants and also good competition. Every event was well organized and carried out with the utmost ability and precision. At one side of the playing field was a refreshment booth which was looked after by the AA and here the participants could get some quick energy between events. The events were divided into three sections: Seniors, Intermediates, and Elemen- taries. The cup winners were as follows: Senior — Barbara Rowe, Shirley Langdon, Jodie Alexander; Intermediate — Mary Elizabeth Coleman, Marlene Deller, Joan Mother- sill; Elementary — Valerie McCabe, Beverley Hawkins, Nancy Deller. l ' n 41- Thirty-six MAXWELL HOUSE 1949 Shield Winner Ala, garoo, garoo, garoo, Ala, garoo, garoo, Hi, ax, pi, ax, lea, pica, dominica, Hong kong Tip pa tika Aha balca bah, Maxwell, Maxwell, Rah, rah, rah. We came close in the tennis tournaments, but close does not count in this game. P. Brook and M. Deller made the finals in the doubles, and M. Deller made the finals in the singles. Field day proved a lot more successful for us when B. Rowe came first, and J. Alexander third in the senior section. In the intermediate section M. Deller came second, while Valerie McCabe came up with top honours for the juniors. We would like to congratulate the following girls who represented their house on the school basketball teams: P. Brook, M. Deller, H. Mitchell, B. Rowe, and S. Skinner on the first team; J. Alexander, I. Faulkner, V. Goodfellow, P. Hogan, J. Scott (captain) on the second team. The house basketball did not turn out as well as we should have liked, for we .von only one game. Although we did not win, the following girls tried their best: O. Abadi, N. Boake, G. Budd, A. Duncombe, J. Ferguson, P. Gilchrist, M. Lytle, V. McCabe, M. L. Palmer, N. Price, B. Shields, B. A. Spafford, P. Tulk. Another successful event for us was the badminton tournament when we took all honours with J. Scott winning the singles, and J. Scott and J. Alexander winning the doubles. In the elementary badminton tournament V. McCabe won the singles and B. A. Spafford helped make up the duet for the doubles. Congratulations to these people who were on the school swimming team: J. Alex- ander, P. Brook, M. Deller, P. Hogan, M. L. Palmer and B. Shields. Last was the inter- house swim meet when Maxwell won by over a hundred points. The following winners were from Maxwell: senior — J. Alexander, third; intermediate — P. Brook, first, M. Deller, second, M. L. Palmer, third; junior — V. McCabe, first. Finally, we would like to say " thank you " to the members of Maxwell House for being very helpful in making the house a great success. We are looking forward to seeing you again next year. M. Deller (captain) P. Hogan (sub-captain) FAREWELL HOUSE This year Farewell has a more favourable report than that of last year. The enthusiasm and house spirit are well on the way to being tops. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have helped achieve this. Our athletic ability, although not abundant, showed up in many sports. If one doesn ' t make the school teams, then her next ambition is to make the house team; this year we had an exceptionally good team. We were victorious in all games but one which was a tie. This team was made up of : J. Mothersill, D. Springer, J. Deller, as our forwards, B. Vorg-Bance, J. Edwards, M. Carcamo as guards. Page Thirty-seven HOUSE CAPTAINS AND SUB-CAPTAINS 1949 Front Row: Captains — Virginia King (Farewell), Marlene Deller (Maxwell), Shirley Langdon (Hare) Back Row: Sub-Captains — Jane Deller (Farewell), Patricia Hogan (Maxwell), Bett y- Ann Howe (Hare) In tennis, one of our favourite outdoor sports, we achieved our finest results. We captured both the singles ' and doubles ' trophies. Sally Fisher and Ann Van Bus- kirk won the doubles and Sally repeated her performance in the singles. When badminton came along, the birds were not hit often enough. However, we did show, with T. Taylor coming second in the singles, and J. Houghton a partner in the runners-up for the doubles. We all love to splash in our over-sized bathtub, the pool. P. Grant came first in the seniors, with J. Deller coming second. We, unfortunately, did not place in the juniors; however, N. Deller floated in third as a tie for the elementaries. For our stunt, we had candles perched on our heads. With the lights out and our candles lit. we swam through several formations, ending by forming an F for Farewell. Though we all love baseball, somehow we managed to strike out too many times, with the result that we came second. Last, but not least, was field day. I think our girls were too full of hot dogs and pop to do much. Nevertheless, we did place in a few things. J. Mothersill came third in the juniors; Beverley Hawkins and N. Deller came second and third in the elementaries. Well, that about sums it all up. Thanks again. Have a wonderful summer. We ' ll see you next year. J. Kink;, J. Di ller, Pfigc Thirty-eight HARE HOUSE We are the hares — yes, we ' re the runners in our school life. True house spirit was shown by every girl who participated in school events. This was proved by the manner in which the girls rallied to grasp second prize in the inter-house swim meet. Winnifred Fee, captain of our first basketball team, and Jane Farlinger, manager, blossomed forth from Hare House. We would like to congratulate the others who made the team: A. Cockburn, H. Cowie, B. Slonemsky, M. E. Coleman, M. Evans, and M. Farr. On St. Valentine ' s day fun an ' food were had by all in the gym. After the games, under the capable leadership of Miss Wickham, were over, the elementaries busily engaged themselves in delivering the valentines. Then everyone enjoyed cake, ice- cream, cookies and candies arranged on individual plates. Field day was another success for the enthusiastic Hares. Congratulations to M. E. Coleman on her well-deserved first prize for the intermediates, and to Shirley Langdon for placing second in the seniors. As a climax to our inter-house basketball we won second place. Our congratula- tions and thanks go to the following for their worthy efforts: L. Price, M. Osumi, D. Young, A. Sinclair, J. Farlinger, V. Haas-Frey, C. Jenkins and M. Stovel. In the swim meet, our successful elementaries, B. Williams and C. Jenkins, tri- umphantly upheld Hare House, winning first and second prizes. If the girls who return next year will carry on with the same spirit of co-operation they have shown this year, they will inspire new members and Hare House should capture the shield. Our thanks go to the A. A. executive for their assistance, and to you Miss Wickham for your guidance in trying to make champs of us all. We sincerely thank you, and, although you will not be at O.L.C. next year, you know we will be thinking of you. S. Langdon (captain) B. A. Howe (sub-captain) BADMINTON Badminton seems to be of the greatest interest to the students, for nearly all the girls play the game. Since it was played in the winter mainly, there was always a great rush for the one court whenever a free moment came in sight. By the amount of practice done, badminton seemed to hold the fort as the top sport of the year. There was considerable teaching given in badminton throughout the year in the different gym classes. The tournaments were divided into two groups, the elementaries being one group and the rest of the school the other. When the competitions came around the greatest enthusiasm was shown by the largest list of entries and the number of spectators at the various games. All the refereeing and scoring was done by the students. The winner of the Senior singles was Joanne Scott and the runner-up was Thelma Taylor. In the doubles the winners were Jodie Alexander and Joanne Scott, runners-up Joan Houghton and Barbara Spafford. This last game in the doubles was quite close and very exciting, drawing a large crowd. In the Elementary tournament the winner of the singles was Valerie McCabe and the runner-up was Marijo Williams. In the doubles the winners were Marijo Williams and Bettie Ann Spafford, and the runners-up Connie Jenkins and Valerie McCabe. Page Thirty-nine FIRST BASKETBALL TEAM 1949 Front Row: T. Taylor, P. Brook, S. Fisher, W. Fee (capt.), P. Grant, M. Deller, S. Skinner Back Row : J. Farlinger, A. Cockburn, J. Doelle, B. Rowe, H. Mitchell, S. Langdon, V. King FIRST BASKETBALL TEAM The first team this year played eight games. We had a good team and worked very well togther, and, although we did not win all our games, we tried hard. The first games we played were against Branksome Hall. They won both of them (38-13) and (34-20). Games with Branksome Hall are always exciting and looked forward to every year. We also played St. Clement ' s (28-26); Whitby High School (11-23), (11-17); Oshawa Collegiate Institute (15-20); Havergal (24-4) and Bowmanville High School (13-22). They were all fast and exciting games. We owe our coach Jane Farlinger a great deal, for she gave us encouragement and helped us very much. We wish our next year ' s first team great success and hope that victory will always be theirs. SECOND BASKETBALL TEAM The second team played nine games. Although it was the first time many of the girls had played on a team, they supported it admirably well and showed great en- thusiasm. They played Branksome Hall (11-32); St. Clement ' s (44-8); Hatfield Hall (23- 13) and (6-24); Whitby High School (6-12) and (9-12); Havergal (12-3); Bowman- ville (26-14). They were all pretty good games, even if the score was a bit on the wrong side. Miss Wickham showed great interest in the management of the team. Here ' s hoping they all make the first team next year! The girls on the team were: J. Alexander, M. E. Coleman, H. Cowie, M. Evans, M. Farr, I Faulkner, V. Goodfellow, P. Hogan, J. Scott, M. Rumsey, B. Slonemsky, A. Van Buskirk. Page Forty TENNIS There are a great many girls at the school this year who are interested in tennis, and in consequence the courts in the fall and the spring were in constant use whenever there was a free monent. Some instruction was given to those who wanted it, and especially to the Elemen- taries who took such a great interest in the game. Even though the balls did not come across the net too fast and furiously the enjoyment was beyond power of words and the exercise wonderful. The tennis tournaments were held late in the fall in order to give all a chance to get in tip-top shape. These games were looked after entirely by some of the girls who were interested in the game, and were run off in the smoothest manner. The winner of the singles was Sally Fisher, and the runner-up was Marlene Del- ler. In the doubles the winners were Sally Fisher and Ann Van Buskirk, and the runners-up were Marlene Deller and Phyllis Brook. RIDING Attention Horse Lovers ! Be sure and include riding in your round of sports at OLC this year. There is no better way to enjoy the great outdoors and at the same time acquire ample exercise. If you have ridden before you will be anxious to con- tinue in order to keep in practice, and what better opportunity could be afforded the beginner? There is the quiet steady type of horse for those at the first learning stage, and the kind that is a little more frisky for the girls who are used to riding and delight in a good fast gallop along a country lane. There is a large practice ring on the school property; here the beginner is taught the fundamentals of horseback riding. Before many lessons have been taken she is ready to leave the ring and join the others in the open road. The surrounding countryside provides mile after mile of winding roads and shady lanes for riding. At the approach of winter the horses are sharp-shod. Have you ever ridden through the snow? Well, be sure and try it. Come on, everybody, saddle up and let ' s be off. Join in the sport of sports and have the time of your life. SKATING AND SKIING AT O.LC. This winter unfortunately there was a scarcity of snow and cold weather. As a result the skating and skiing was greatly limited. However, there was skating down in the Whitby Arena every Tuesday and Thurs- day after school whenever the weather permitted, and it was here that a few twirls and jumps were practised. For some of the girls from South America it was their first time on ice, and what fun it was for them to try and stand up and to take the stride. The ice at the school was quite poor as the temperature did not go down very low, and as a result only a few enjoyable hours were spent on it. What little bit of snow there was this year saw many of the girls out on the hills at the back of the school which unfortunately are not very high or very long. Any who did really want to ski had to do so in the Christmas holidays. The toboggans were used on the hills behind the school, and again to the girls who had never seen snow before this sport was great fun and the hills were plenty steep enough. Even though our style was cramped this winter by the failure of the weather, we had a great deal of enjoyment, and many pleasant memories will remain. Page Forty-one INTER-SCHOOL SWIMMING MEET The inter-school swimming meet was held on April 8, and our guests were girls from Oshawa C.V.I. This meet proved to be of great interest to all who were there to see the girls swim. Our swimming team, far from letting us down, drew top honours. One of the most beautiful sights was the diving which was executed with the greatest ability and was won by Joan Armstrong of Oshawa, second place was tied by Peggy Grant and Jodie Alexander, and in third place was Marlene Deller. The most amusing event was the pyjama race, won by OLC. After the meet the girls from our swimming team gave light refreshment to the guest team and a good time was had by all. INTER-HOUSE SWIMMING MEET A gay event of the year was the inter-house swimming meet held in March. Each house was well represented and only the final events were held that night, the preliminaries being held previously. Maxwell House came out on top. They placed first, second and third in the inter- mediates, first in the elementary section and third in the senior section. Farewell House had several winners, placing first and second in the senior events and tieing for third in the elementary. All the events were run off in precise and ship-shape manner with the spectators watching with keen interests. The individual winners were: Senior- — Peggy Grant, Jane Deller, Jodie Alexander; Intermediate — Phyllis Brook, Marlene Deller, Mary Lou Palmer; Elementary — Valerie McCabe, Bernice Williams, Nancy Deller and Connie Jenkins (tie). The House winners were: (1) Maxwell, (2) Farewell, (3) Hare. PaRf! Forty- two THE JOY OF LIVING There are, undoubtedly, many who believe there is joy in living only when one is able to beam with an inner joy bubbling over. I believe there is real joy in living every day whether we are able to " laugh the loud laugh that speaks the va- cant mind " or whether we get relief from a good cry. Horace, in one of his odes, expresses his philosophy in the words " Whatever sort of day Fortune brings, count as gain. " In this he advocates moderation and emphasizes the need to meet calm- ly situations which occur from day to day. In view of the suffering in the world today, who is able to experience this joy of living? I am convinced that no one is barred, regardless of social status. Life is very often what an individual makes it. If things are not going well for her, she may not be held responsible, but she can, at least, make the best of the situation and believe that it will not always be thus. " In adversity, seek for a change of lot, and in prosperity, fear such a change. " It is often hard to be cheerful when one is trying to do her best, and the re- sults are disappointing. This is particularly true when she realizes these results not only affect herself but disappoint her friends, who have placed their confidence in her. This realization is one of the greatest challenges in the world and an active checkup on the individual who might give up more readily if she alone were to be disappointed. When a person learns, or is willing to try, to live outside herself and thus be worthy of the faith and confidence of her friends, she is strengthening her own character and learning that there is joy even in struggle and hardship. God did not teach us fear or uncertainty, but rather He taught us to have faith and believe. Therefore, I feel there is joy in living for anyone who wants to enjoy herself. It is selfish to allow oneself to become burdened with her own problems, and, while thus actively engaged, miss many opportunities to bring a smile to the face of a needy friend. If an individual can evaluate her own life in terms of its effect on others, she will mount up from her self-centred position " with the wings of an eagle " to greet each new day with a smile. Audrey McKim, XIII. Page Forty-three AMBITIONS THAT OTHERS HAVE FOR ME " Why don ' t you go through for a doctor? The way you can look at blood without fainting means you should be a doctor. " " But I don ' t want to be a doctor. I can ' t even get my Senior Matric, much less a doctor ' s degree. I tell you, I ' m dumb! " " Then why don ' t you go through for a nurse — a gift like yours shouldn ' t be wasted, you know. " Why don ' t people leave me alone? My one and only ambition is to marry a rich farmer and have plenty of dogs, cats and horses. But can I do that? No. That ' s not ambitious enough (You just try to get a rich farmer, though). I have to do something somebody else wants me to do. Why is it people are so ambitious for others? I have been told that I should be a gym teacher, a Sunday school teacher, a mechanic, a professional football player, and in fact, even a model. A model — that really takes the cake. " Oh, yes, " people say, " you have a perfect figure for model- ling. " Modelling what, though — pup tents? My father ' s one ambition once was that I should be a boy. Now it ' s changed. His ambition now is that I go through for a journalist and take over his business as editor of the town ' s weekly rag. And I know it ' s going to break his heart, but . . Mother would like me to be a painter, or a poet, or something that brings out the fine points in me. Mother, I don ' t want to be rude or anything, but what fine points? " Hey, Mum, can ' t I please marry a farmer? " Barbara Rowe, XIII. SCENE ON THE FARM AT HARVEST TIME Two dark figures were silhouetted against the late October moon. Slowly they walked down the cedar-hedged lane of Cedar Springs Farm, Mother and Father, quietly giving thanks to God for the bountiful harvest that He had provided for all the farmer folk. Beyond the silvery stubble of the clover field, I could see the generous stooks of coppery wheat drying. There was row upon row, stretching far out across the moonlit field. An old snake fence was the modest frame for our picture of hard labour, long weary hours of cultivating, and the answer to many an earnest prayer given at the little old Church on the Hill. Looking down the valley I could see the shadow of the cornfield. It was a thrilling sight, the massive old oak tree spreading his sinuous arms out high above the dwarfed corn, as if a Gulliver standing guard over the Lilliputians. In the vegetable plot the moon danced from pumpkin to squash, and ran along the twinelike runner, thus forming little pools with endless tributaries throughout the garden. The rows of carrot tops were like battalions of soldiers at attention, healthy and strong with perfect posture. The cabbages formed unique patterns like a rolling ocean. All the varieties of vegetables resembled human objects under the brilliance of the beautiful moon. There was so much to be thankful for. no wonder Mother and Father were giving thanks to the Great Power above. He had surely shown his mercies to the fertile soils of Cedar Spring Farm. Nancy Boake, XIII. Forty-four L ' ATTENTE Brrrrrrr — la sonnette reveilla Mimi a sept heures exactement. Elle se leva toute de suite, en disant a sa camarade-de-chambre: " Jeannette, tu sais que c ' est aujourd ' hui que je vais recevoir une lettre, la reponse de mon invitation a notre danse " . Jeannette ne dit rien-elle dormait encore. Pendant le petit dejeuner, la promenade de matin, et les premieres classes, Mimi etait heureuse, et aussi un peu distraite. Dans la classe d ' histoire, Mile Lenoir lui dit, " Mimi, apres quel animal est appele la ville de Buffalo? " Et elle ne put pas repondre. Elle etait vraiment dans la lune! A " poussee " aussi, une chose tres rare se passa. Mimi ne mangea rien. Generalement elle mangeait environ six tartines, mais aujoud ' hui — pas une! Jean- nette etait un peu inquiete mais Mimi sourit et dit avec un regard reveur, " Je n ' ai pas faim, parce que je pense a. Georges — ah, l ' amour, toujours l ' amour. " Les autres jeunes filles se moquerent d ' elle. " Georges — que c ' est un nom romantique! " Une periode passa, deux, et enfin la derniere. Mimi regarda tout le monde mais elle ne vit personne. Enfin la sonnerie — Mimi sortit de la salle de classe — en courant. Elle regarda l ' ecriteau. " Une lettre pour moi, epatant! " Elle attendit son tour et apres un temps considerable on lui donna une lettre — Mais elle etait de sa mere, pas de Georges. Quel dommage! Eh bien, se dit Mimi, demain peut- etre . . . Jo Shone, XIII. SALLY: A SHORT STORY One of my numerous little household tasks is to let the dog out every night before I go to bed. That you may say sounds easy! All you have to do is open the door and let the little dear out. Well, believe me, there is more to it than that — and how ! It might not be so hard if the darned dog would co-operate, but I guess that would be too much to expect! Comes the time to go to bed, and the struggle begins. I stand at the bottom of the stairs, and my gentle little voice bellows, " Here Sally! " Dead silence. I call again. The only answer is the squeaking of the springs as the darling makes herself a little more comfortable on my pillow. I give out with one last blood- curdling yell and finally succeed in moving her. She comes tripping downstairs with a " For Heaven ' s sake, what are you so excited about? " expression on her face. I suppress the desire to strangle her quietly, and open the front door. Sally then takes one sniff, thinks better of it, and starts up the stairs again — but I am too quick for her. With a mighty swoop I seize her collar and firmly push her outside. Well, so far, so good, but this is only half the battle. In about five minutes there is a scratch at the door. I open it, but the minute I do so, Sally begins to bark frantically and tears off into the dark. This is an example of her perverted and sickening sense of humour. A second time she does this, and a second time she disappears. However the third time she gets rather bored, and decides to come in. My troubles are not yet over though, for my eyes perceive a bone, a thing for- bidden in the house, sticking out of her mouth. We have a battle; she wins, and dashes up the stairs. I arrive there a few minutes later to find her curled up in my bed again, but, wonder of wonders, the bone is gone. I ask Sally to move over, and fall into bed, exhausted both physically and mentally. At about four a.m. I awake, having a horrible dream that Sally was chasing me up and down stairs with a knitting needle. I have awakened just at the point Page Forty-five where she catches up with me. I roll over, and something sharp and slimy pierces my back. With a scream of anger, I leap out of bed and feel under the covers. To my horror and disgust what should I draw out but the dog ' s repulsive bone. I deposit the treasure in the wastepaper basket and crawl into bed again, disgusted with life in general, but most particularly with Sally! Audrey Cockburn, XII. THINGS I HAVE ENJOYED MOST SINCE COMING TO CANADA Few are the things I have enjoyed since coming to Canada, because I haven ' t seen very much, but the most exciting thing for me was the first time I saw snow. At home I was always dreaming and thinking about it; one of my great desires was to go to one country where I could see all around the white and beautiful snow over the roofs of the houses, as shown on the Christmas cards; the frozen lakes and rivers; the moon shining through the trees without leaves. All these things I had always had in mind and God willed that I realized my eternal dream. I remember how happy I was on last November the 14th, when, going out, I could see real snow over the leaves left on the ground during the Au tumn. I almost cried, not because I was sad, but because I was full of happiness. Also I enjoy very much seeing the little children with their snow suits on, riding sleighs: that is something I ' ll never forget about Canada. People say there is a great difference between the things we imagine and the reality; but that isn ' t true for me in this case, because everything I saw was just as I imagined it. And skating, how wonderful that is! I cannot describe with words what I felt the first time I put on my skates and ran over the ice, keeping the time of a Strauss waltz. These are the things I really have enjoyed since I came to Canada, and I think that when I go home again, I ' ll miss this country very much. Margarita Carcamo, XII HOW PERSONS I DISLIKE HELP ME Something you don ' t like to admit is that a person for whom you have a firm dislike has helped you, so, usually, the only person you reveal this knowledge to is yourself. Whenever you dislike a person, there is usually a reason. It may be in her character, her clothes, hair-do, or choice of men. But whatever it is, you make doubly certain that you possess none of her faults along these lines. Often people do not realize that their dislikes in other people help them to form better habits and character. But it is a decided factor in the improvement of human nature, that we learn from the mistakes of others. I think it is sound advice, even though the strain of " cat blood " in us rebels, that we do not ignore the people we dislike, but take careful note of them and lay them out in little pieces before us. But lay out also in separate pieces the puzzle that composes the scenic beauty of yourself, and be certain that if any of the pieces you have tagged as bad characteristics are found identical to any of the pieces com- posing your own structure you immediately do something about it. Do not worry. All this can be done in the deepest of secrecy, and not a soul will know that the girl you " simply cannot stand " helped improve you yourself. Bette Shields, XII l ' ii%r Forty-fix PIERRE CADIEUX vs. TIM HORTON There ' s a starry right-winger on the Kroehler team, Who always seems to he right on the beam, His shots are strong, right off the stick, And there ' s no doubt he ' s the coach ' s pick, (next to Horton) His hard body checks other players fear (all except Tim Horton) ■ And Dawn thinks he ' s a little dear. When he goes off, tears flow by the gallon, Especially from a girl by the name of Dawn Allen. And now he sweats upon the bench With his great line-mates, Lewicki and French (and Horton). But soon he ' ll be back, and there again, And Dawn will not then go insane. To everyone his age was a mystery, ( not Horton — he ' s nineteen ) So O.H.A. looked up his history, And now he must the penalty pay, (not Horton, he ' s honest) So back to Valley field he ' ll go to stay. (St. Mike ' s have Horton — we pray!) But there ' s a fan who ' ll weep his fate Until his age is twenty-eight, (Horton then will be on Leafs) But he ' ll be back, fust wait and see, No finer player there ' ll ever be, ( except Horton ) And on his back he ' ll wear a seven, (three is Horton ' s number) Which to Dawn Allen will always mean heaven. So all her hopes on him she pours, Watch! There he goes, and now — he SCORES! (assist — Horton!) Gloria Budd and Marlene Deller, XII THE DOCTOR ' S WAITING ROOM Some day I would like to sit in the doctor ' s waiting-room without having to go into his office. I think it would be a glorious feeling to know that I am the only fortunate one in the whole crowded room. Fortunate, that is, in the sense of not having anything wrong with me which a doctor will have to try to cure. Although they may not show it, these people all feel nervous about seeing the doctor. It ' s not that they are afraid of him. It ' s what he may do that intimidates them. I believe that the waiting-room itself creates this feeling. The smell of the medicine and the spot- lessness, and all the nervous people gathered there, all tend to give the impression of something going to happen. And the general feeling is that it likely won ' t be good. It ' s rather curious that in this room all the general hurry and rush of the outside world is relaxed. Outside people are shouting and shoving and rushing around. But here . . . the room is quiet except for an occasional whispered cough, or the shaking rattle of a magazine page. Here the people are pensively polite, watching each person emerge from the inner office with silent, questioning eyes. When the nurse warning- ly opens the door and says in a hushed, doubtfully cheerful voice, " Who ' s next? " , the silence and tension are increased. No one makes a move. There is no bustle or rush here. Everyone is politely but emphatically trying to make the other person go first. Even when a person ' s name is called, there is silence, and then he slowly and reluctant- ly rises to his feet and disappears into the office. After the tension in the waiting-room, the experience in the doctor ' s office is dull. And when the visitor comes out, he smiles to himself to think that for him, at least, the waiting-room ordeal is over. Virginia Goodfellow, XI Page Forty-seven THE BOY IN THE BACK ROW Like all Seniors he sat in the rear of the Auditorium. Assembly Day never failed to find him three seats from the end in the very back row. There he laughed and talk- ed, listened and learned, as would any other lad of nineteen. He seemed entirely unaware of the sensation he caused amid the feminine section several rows ahead. If he had noticed, he could never have accounted for it. For he never realized that his unruly black hair combined with the slow smile that lit his blue- gray eyes placed him in that class called handsome. His popularity was by no means limited to one set. His athletic ability, honesty and sense of fair play, won for him the friendship and admiration of the other lads. His mischievous sense of humour did much to keep them. He made a good friend, for he was convinced that all aid should be given to anyone in need of it. He often helped another at the expense of his own pride and prestige. This boy was extremely practical, and yet a dreamer. Sensitive himself, he was thoughtful of others. He was shy and quiet among strangers but charming and amus- ing among friends. His nature held many contradictions; still he showed his charac- ter to be good and strong. He has left that back seat vacant now, for many years. Still, when Assembly morning comes, he seems to be there. Perhaps in a way he is! For although he can not actually be present, he still holds that seat in the memory of all who knew him. Elizabeth Sinclair, XII COMPLAINTS OF AN O.LC. MOUSE I, Percival Mouse of 46 Upper Fran, have taken the opportunity to make my com- plaints of life against two human monsters called Denise Springer and Heather Cowie. I shall begin with my effort to obtain a small midnight, or early-hours-of-the- morning snack. The room is usually dark when I make this perilous journey to the large basket in which there are generally bread crust or other such delicacies to be found. This basket is much too large and it takes a great effort to leap into it, which at times is discouraging. Basket manufacturers should give thought to us poor starving mice, and fit a little door at the bottom of one side for us to enter more easily. They are very inconsiderate, I must say. Some nights the bread is extra crunchy and it ' s fun to see how loudly I can eat it. Or, after eating, for a little exercise there is nothing better than jumping up and down inside the basket, sliding down the paper and having a wonderful time in general. The paper makes such a wonderful noise too. This seems to be nothing to complain about, does it? Well, what I was leading up to is that in the middle of all this fun, one of the monsters has to wake up, turn on the light, and before I have time to catch my breath, a shoe is aimed at the basket. It usually makes a direct hit, and knocks the breath out of me, as well as nearly giving me heart-failure. One afternoon when the monster humans were away, I jumped into the basket for my lunch. But what do you think happened? One of them returned and caught me in the middle of a swallow, and I nearly choked to death. After poking at me con- siderably she turned the basket upside down, and I escaped to my hole. What I recom- mend is a little bell that jingles every time the door is opened to give me time to get away. Many of my relations have been caught in those horrid contraptions called traps. My aunt was mercifully killed instantly with a broken neck, but my uncle caught only his foot and suffered considerably before he was dumped out of the window, only to dash liis brains out on the pavement below. Cruel, heartless creatures those humans are; Page Forty-eight at least my two haven ' t set out any traps for me. But all the time I am still cautious, most of the time anyway. The last thing I have in mind is the way female humans react to us mice. When they see us they scream shrilly and jump on chairs and beds. But then there are others who run at us with brooms, mops, or anything that looks as though it would squash a mouse. It is fun teasing them a little, but I don ' t recommend it for elderly mice, as it is a very quick and dangerous sport. I am now at the end of my complaints, and I thank you for reading them and hope they will be given serious consideration. (Signed) Percival Mouse Denise Springer, XI THE INVENTOR OF MOUSEBOY SOAP Murgatroyd Mouse II was a very gray mouse. He was a very rich mouse and had at least one million seeds in his storehouses. He had servants and cars too. But with all this he was not at all happy. Indeed he was very sad, because he had no real friends. He went bowling and dancing with all his other friends, but no one evei seemed to dance with him. Novv, it happened one day that he was bowling, and he overheard his so-called friends say something about F.O. (fur odour), and knew they meant him. So Murgy went home and experimented and worked late that night, and soon he had invented a new soap. He soon became very popular and when he told his secret he became very popular and famous amongst other people. And that, my children, is how Mouseboy Soap was invented. Valerie McCabe, VIII THE MOUSE ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE Shorty Longtail smelt cheese! He ran up the stairs and squeezed out the hole and was about to run into the pantry when Irishman, the old cat, seized him. " So me little Shorty is caught at last! " " Oh, please, Irishman, let me go. I smell cheese, " cried Shorty Longtail, too frightened to move. " Sure ' n I will, if you ' ll do somethin ' for me. " Irishman smiled to himself. " Oh, anything, " said Shorty, pleadingly. " Well, " began Irishman, " you know the mice are a-havin ' a carnival and as Limmy is a friend of mine, he asked that the next mouse I caught would be the likely one to fly on a trapeze. " " You mean I have to go in a carnival and be a daring actor? " ' That ' s right, me boy. " " Well, all right, maybe Clarabelle will like me better if I go in a daring act, but then ... I might not ever see her again. And there ' s my poor mother who will be all alone too. " " Suit yourself, me lad. Remember I kin swallow ye up in a mouthful. " " Where am I to go? " Irishman gave Shorty the directions, and in a week mice from all over the world were watching Daredevil Longtail in the most daring spectacle ever seen in Mouseland. He was a hit, and, mind you, he didn ' t fall! So, a few months later, Shorty, in his best suit, and Clarabelle, in her best dress, were married. " Well, " sighed Irishman, as he watched the mouse on the flying trapeze, " he would ' ve been only a mouthful, anyway.
