Miss Carman came to O.L.C. in January 1935, as teacher of Modem Languages, and so has been a member of the staff for just over fifteen years. As a teacher she has been preeminently successful. Her standards have been high and any student of hers has been sure of a thorough grounding in French and German. To her students Miss Carman was very generous of her time, giving special help to a great many " lame ducks " . Through the years she has helped many students over the Departmental hurdles, who without her instruction and encouragement would have found it impossible. The one thing she found it hard to tolerate was in- dolence. Altogether apart from her work as teacher, by simply being herself and living among us as a member of the school community, Miss Carman ' s influence has been great and always helpful, hi all her relations to her colleagues on the staff and to the students, Miss Carman was ever courteous, cheerful and co-operative. The College has had a deep place in her affections and she should know that she has done much for it and for its students. Among the Alumnae of O.L.C. there are many who look back with gratitude to Miss Carman, her friendship and her counsel. It is with deep regret that we see her sever her connection with the school. She has been an inspiring teacher, a loyal colleague and a true friend. The best wishes of all, both students and teachers, go ivith her. C. R. Carscallen Page Three Jforetoorb am pleased to introduce the 1950 edition of Vox Collegii. The Editor and her Staff have won our praise for their efforts. During this year we have witnessed further important improve- ments to our property and building. The renovation of our dormitories has proceeded very well and soon we hope thai this work will be finish- ed before another year rolls around. But most significant of all is the progress that has been made to- ward the erection of a Chapel and three classrooms. The Campaign Committee has 7nade a very auspicious beginning in its appeal for sup- port: already $20,000 has been subscribed! We will press forward vigorously until our goal is achieved. To the thirty-four graduates who go out from these halls to take their places in a world groaning under a veritable demon of suspicion and deceit, I would say " Hold fast to the form of sound words . . . and those things which you have received and heard, keep! " Set your heart not, like the humanist, upon the abundance of things which a man may possess, but on the quality of a pure and Christian spirit, which no thief can steal from you. Then will your contribution to the total movement of life be something more than " figures on a dial " : its motivation will lie in a short motto with a long meaning which I most earnestly commend to you — ICH DIEN S. L. Osborne I ' age Pour EDITORIAL STAFF 1950 Front ROW: Jane Farlinger (school events), Mrs. Pringle (Faculty advisor), Betty Shields (Editor-in-Chief ) . BACK Row: Jean Murrell (Art), Gwen Lake (Literary Ed.), Kay Lake (Advertising Mgr.), Nancy Chapman (Circulation Mgr.). fbditonal Pests There are many species of pests — some from the human world, others from the plant and insect spheres. No one could ever make ' a complete list, as each person has his own idea concerning pests: The pests that seem to be prevalent to-day are n6t poison ivy or mosquitoes or your neighbour ' s youngest, but wrong ideas. In to-day ' s world there are many ways in which young people may turn. When they decide which path to follow, it is often found to be dominated by a specific idea, [that they must either fight or support.] Too, many business men become materialistic in their ideas, and ambition blots out all spiritual values. The thought of God, which should be supreme is being forgotten, and the pest of materialism is gaining influence. The pest of Communism is one that must be overcome, not by war, but by a better idea. People should realize this and begin thinking in terms of peace instead of war. In the pages of history it is seen that Christianity is the " better idea " that should be built up to combat Communism. Other pests that are injuring our world are class and racial prejudice. I wonder if anyone could ever give a plausible explanation for one? Everyone likes the scent of a rose and everyone feels grief and sorrow, where then is the difference? Our example of the perfect man, Jesus, had no prejudice, he chose a man of another race to be the Good Samaritan. By seeking to be like him our prejudice should disappear, and Christianity would conquer the pest once more. By reasoning, an individual can see the challenge that lies before them. It is by the Christian actions and ideas of each person that the " pests " of our present day world will be overcome, and now is the time to put them into practice. B.A.S. Page Five Page Six 1 .

The new girls, dressed front-backwards and inside out were very amusing and were very sportilike in being the servants of the old girls. The new teachers were also dressed in an amusing fashion. The day was topped off when the law-breakers received their penalties and then we all were the old girls of O.L.C. HALLOWE ' EN PARTY This year our Hallowe ' en Party was very colourful and bewitching. After our traditional dinner, lighted by candles, we all joined in the Grand March in our costumes. The costumes were both beautiful and original and many received prizes. Page Sixteen e Lshristmas LQianer The festive Christmas spirit and atmosphere was revealed by O.L.C. the evening of our Christmas dinner. The guests, faculty and school entered the 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 famous Boar ' s Head to the table, and dinner began. Carols were sung during and after the meal. " Good King Wenceslas " an old favourite, was made into a short playlet. Then the guests went into the Main Hall where the tableau, " The Crib " was presented. Shakespeare ' s play " Twelfth Night, " was then presented in the concert hall under the direction of Miss Blackstone. At the end of another Christmas dinner, we were all in a cheerful Yuletide spirit. enior CD, inner This night, the Graduating Seniors were the honoured guests at the school ' s annual Senior Dinner. The girls looked lovely in formals and enjoyed thoroughly the wonderful dinner. The Senior table was very attractive and the Seniors were delighted with their lovely souvenirs, especially prepared by the Juniors. I ' m sure, this is one night the Seniors will always remember when they think of their dear Alma Mater. Following the dinner, clever and impressive toasts were proposed and replied to as follows: To Our Country Alma Mater Faculty and Staff Graduating Class Other Classes School Organizations Proposed by Ruth Corlett Wendy McLaughlin Jane Farlinger Barbara Lipson Jane Doelle Jane Nichols Response by Joan Murrell Anne Duncombe Margarita Carcamo Moreno Miss Sissons Hazel Mitchell Nancy Chapman (Juniors) Diane Young (Sophomores) Valerie McCabe (Freshmen) Marijo Williams (Elementaries) Patricia Hogan Pamela Tulk Marlene Deller Bette Shields Page Seventeen ' ances VOX COLLEGH — Nov. 5 Our year book again presented an enjoyable informal dance. The gym was decor- ated in our O.L.C. colours and it was a wonderful relaxation in the centre of our fall exams. Our guests were some boys from Pickering College, Newmarket. Holly Hop — Nov. 25 Our Senior Class did a wonderful job. Our Holly Hop was a great success. This year ' s Holly Hop was decorated with red streamers, candles, massive paper mache statues and choral-singers, donated by the Art Room. All were colourful and original. This dance was enjoyed by everyone in a Christmas spirit. O.L.C. At Home — The Athletic Association Dance — Feb. 24 This was our big formal of the year. The dining room and assembly hall were decorated in the Mardi Gras motif with a ceiling of balloons and latice-work of streamers on the sides. Our evening consisted of a wonderful buffet supper and dancing. I ' m sure everyone wishes to say " thanks " to the A. A. and all the girls who helped make our formal a success.

Wilkinson ( Sec.-Treas.) STUNTS OF THE YEAR Old Girl ' s Stunt — Sept. 24 This stunt was a remembrance of the best stunts of former years. New Girls ' Stunt — Sept. 30 The new girls put on a wonderful entertainment of vaudeville. Stunt Night — March 25 Stunt Night was a great success and was filled with entertainment from beginning to end. All the classes spent a great deal of time preparing for their stunts and they deserve the best congratulations. The following is a list of the stunts. Elementaries Radio Show Freshmen Queen Elizabeth ' s History Sophomores Hawaiian Dance Mediums Fashion Show Juniors Portrayal of Great Paintings Dance of the 1920 ' s Seniors " Annie Get your Gun " Page Nineteen Photo by Leroy Toll MAY QUEEN AND COUNSELLORS Left TO RIGHT: Jane Farlinger, Counsellor, Pamela Tulk, Queen, Betty Shields, Counsellor May Day is one of remembrance for an O.L.C. girls for it is the day the May Queen is crowned and festivities in her honour take place. Mrs. Carscallen gave the opening address which was very inspiring as well as informative. Then the guests and school moved down to the front lawn. Under the warm sun of a beautiful May Day, Mrs. Carscallen crowned our May Queen, Pamela Tulk of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Queen and her Councillors, Bette Shields and Jane Farlinger, proceeded to the throne, to watch exercises performed by the remainder of the girls. The exercises consisted of many activities including the beautiful May-Pole dance, gymnastics, tumbling, apparatus and marching. Many thanks are due to the girls and Miss Howson who directed them. So the day closed and ended our memorable May Day of 1950. Page Twenty m CHURCH OF THE BAY One of the senior class traditions is the service at the Church of the Bay, Port Whitby. This takes place the Sunday morning preceding Baccalaureate Sunday. All the Seniors took their place in the Church and the sermon was very inspiring. In that tiny church set among the lofty pines we find the revelation of the peace and serenity of God. BACCALAUREATE SUNDAY Our Baccalaureate Sunday means a great deal to the Graduates of O.L.C. It is the Sunday the Seniors in cap and gown attend the annual service in their honour at Whitby United Church. Dr. Crossley Hunter, this year, gave us an inspiring sermon. The service was also made memorable by a beautifully sung solo by Thelma Taylor. On their return to the school, the graduates passed through Main Hall, the student body following them, and the procession continued up the Main Stairs singing the Baccalaureate Hymn, " Saviour, again, to Thy Dear Name we raise . . . . " CLASS DAY 1950 Class Day was warm and clear this year and at the crack of dawn (approximately eight o ' clock) the Senior Class had started to the Lake for their annual breakfast party. By all reports they had a fabulous time and had gorgeous bacon and eggs. The lilac-chain was prepared in the morning by our faithful Juniors and it was really beautiful. Early in the afternoon the traditional procession of the Seniors bound by their chain of friendship passed into the concert hall. As Barbara Lipson, 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 Vivien Beach read the witty Senior prophecy, and Bette Shields delivered her expressive valedictory. Athletic awards were then distributed by Miss Howson and Marlene Deller. Miss Sissons presented each graduate with their pin. In the evening the traditional student concert was given with the presentation of prizes. After this the amusing burning of the books was held. COMMENCEMENT June 7 finally came, a glorious sunshiny day which seemed to reflect the happiness of the 1950 Graduates. For this was ' their ' day, the one they had been waiting for and working towards since some of us began in first form at O.L.C. At the afternoon ceremony Mr. Rogers presented the diplomas. The address given by Professor Lewis C. Walmsly was both inspiring and helpful. I ' m sure the seniors will strive to base their future activities on the foundation pieces he laid before them. The garden party after the ceremony was a great success, although many girls said tearful good-byes to new found friends who had come to mean so much to them during the year. The Graduation Day was completed and made perfect by the Dance held that evening. The hall was decorated in such a way as to create a festive atmosphere. The dance ended, and with the close of it came the contemplation of one of the most memorable days of the school year. Page Twenty-one {Jaleclictory Commencement — it is the beginning of a new adventure, our adult life. What it may hold for us the future alone can tell, but whatever it may bring, we seniors realize how much O.L.C. has done to prepare us to meet all situations. It has given us the necessities which enable us to face with a bold heart the beginning of the most important phase of our life. During the years that have been spent here, we have learned to live with others in harmony. A spirit of fellowship has been created which acts as a barrier to all injustice. It has taught us patience, tolerance, perseverance, and to have faith in our fellow men, characteristics which shall enable us to become better women and fill our place in this world more ably. Those who have helped us attain a higher standard of living are the faculty. We give them thanks for enabling us to be on this platform to-day, receiving the diplomas which shall serve as a key to the outer world. We shall show appreciation to them by striving to live up to the standards which they have set before us. " We are proud of our Alma Mater, the gardens, the orchards which surround the graceful structure of Trafalgar Castle, and what shall remain on the minds of all who have come to know the school is the intrinsic beauty of main hall. Each senior has her own special vision of a favourite spot when O.L.C. is mentioned, and these we will boast about, showing in our speech the proudness of our hearts. And so we leave our dear Blue and Blue with feelings of joy and expectation mingled with pangs of remorse. But the graduates of 1950, pledge to you our school, That thy glory we .shall see, Wherever we may be, Still love of O.L.C. Our future rule. Bette Shields Senior Class LProphecy The brightness of the spring day May 12th 1982, inspired me to tour the " Whitby Institute " which had been brought to my attention by the colourful pamphlet printed by the B. Shields printing company, whose manager was Mrs. Bill Ptolmely, an old classmate of 1950. This pamphlet told how modernized the institute had become under the expert design of architect, Jane Doelle, and head foreman of the job Joan Murrel, who has since changed her last name to that of the chief constable of the R.C.M.P. I had often been lured back to thoughts of Whitby, from my year at O.L.C, but a visit to the other " institute " was quite unique, but bravely I taxied up to the huge gates. Two bright young lads, tall and slim (weighing about 110 lbs.) with firey red hair, adorned the entrance and cheerfully introduced themselves as two of Mrs. Willy (Deller) White ' s dozen. Gladly they led me to the guide of my tour who was our own May Queen of 1950, Pam Tulk, who though quite grey, still possessed her per- sonality and charm even as a receptionist. Our first visit was round the charming Page Twenty-two Senior Class Prophecy, cont ' d. grounds where I met a few old friends, Danny (Jo Scott ' s old grey mare) professionally cutting the grass: Muriel Baker applying a starch test to a geranium leaf: and Ann Duncombe, who was artistically arranging her bouquet of freshly cut flowers in the bird bath. The beautiful landscaping I learned had been under the direction of Pro- fessor of Botany Wendy McLaughlin, who although a little girl, had high ideas. Barb McCormack helped Wendy with her designs. Inside I was again surprised to be met by the head of nurses, Miss Gloria Budd, and her assistants, Miss Marilyn Lytle and Miss Marilyn Davis, who added to our touring party. The hospital had been turned into quite a vocational help and my tour wandered from one occupation room to the other. The first was the school where the younger inmates were under the capable direc- tion of Miss Joyce Clark, renowned for her teaching ability and especially for teaching her students correct carriage and posture. Several of the young students had very familiar faces and upon questioning I found they were the daughter of Mrs. Doug Knowler (Barb Gage) and the identical twins of Mrs. Peter Tobias (Kathleen Lake). The next room I was privileged to admire was the music room, where Miss Rita Donaldson, B.A., A.R.T.C., Mus.Doc, etc., was leading a group in musical apprecia- tion. Helping Rita, I found the familiar face of Miss Rosemary Howey, who also hailed in teaching public school. The sewing room was my next to encounter, and here found many busily working at skirts and blouses, being helped and guided by a world renowned seamstress and artist, Miss Gwen Lake. The child having a most pitiful time with her dress was Jeanie Wilson (daughter of the former Jean Dougal). Up to this point my excursion had been only to the rooms for the quieter patients but as we neared another, from the noise I gathered it to be the gym for the over active patients. In charge Lyn Rutherford, spry as ever was showing a pupil how to throw a baseball, while in another corner a harshly tempered little lady was shouting " track " at the top of her voice — naturally it was Lesley Taylor (of Maniwaki) showing how to slalom properly. Every hospital has it laboratory and I learned that this institution had one of the finest. Ruth Corlett and Jane Farlinger joint winners of the Nobel prize for scientists in 1970, were busily discovering a new injection which could bring a person back to normality. In an adjoining room to the lab the dietitian Jane Nichols (Mrs. Jack Jameson) and her assistant Marguerita Carcamo, prepared their meals for the next week. At the thought of meals I inquired for the dining room, which to my delight was a cheerful room for up and coming patients. Two very attractive girls of about 18 were gaily singing a lovely duet. These girls proudly announced that they were the former Henrietta Wilkinson ' s daughters. Henry, we learned, had married the son of Lawrence Tibbet whom she had met while starring with the metropolitan Opera Com- pany. I noticed two middle aged women scrubbing the mastic tile floor; so vigor- ously they did it, I stopped to enquire why. The lovely faces of Pat Hogan and Cathy Jackson looked up and I realized these two physically trained women were keeping in condition by scrubbing the floor with a new invention of scientist John Houghton. Pam then guided me down the hall again toward the office. As we passed the music room again a shrill, high bell-like sound hit my ear, and I stopped in my tracks. I was eased when Joan Black appeared in the doorway with her young Page Twenty-three Senior Class Prophecy, cont ' d. pupil. Joan, a coloratura soprano, had hit high I , the sound 1 had mistaken for a bell. At the end of the long corridor was the office, and at the sound of many typewriters I looked in. Three of the stenographers 1 recognized as Hazel Mitchell, Sonia Robertson and Kay Reeves, while the bookkeeper was Perla Audai. Thirty-five girls in all I had renewed acquaintance with, even if a little indirectly or in an unexpected place, but seeing them or their replicas brought so many happy experiences of O.L.C. While the sun was still shining I made my way to my helicopter and spun out of the laneway waving goodbye to the senior class of 1950. Vivien Beach ALICE AT O.LC. Chapter 666 (Being part of the Dean ' s Senior Dinner Speech — April 28, 1950 — with apologies to Lewis Carroll ) It was a glorious Saturday afternoon in May, and, in spite of exams so close at hand, one could not resist the warm invitation of the spring sunshine to sit outside and soak it up. Alice took her book out to the front steps, tucked herself into a corner, and rolled down her stockings contrary to explicit instructions of the old Dodo (excuse it, she means the Dean). She opened her book, found her place, and started to figure it out: " The vertex of a parabola bisects the segment of its axis cut off by the tangent " , but the sun was so bright, and the parabolas swung round on the page like crazy comets ( " Don ' t overdo this business of trying to study out in the sun, girls, " — this was the Dean, of course — " you ' ll ruin your eyesight " ). " The vertex of the umbrella " . . no, that wasn ' t right, but why bother . . The air was so deliciously fragrant . . . mmm, those lilacs . . . that she closed her eyes the better to enjoy it. Horrid old exams, she thought, why do they have to spoil the springtime? " " Yes, " said a gruff, but not unsympathetic voice, " but life is like that, and we have to be ready to be tested at all times, bad and good. Life isn ' t all basking in the sun. There are cold nights and stormy days as well, and we must provide against their coming. Believe me, I know. So we must not only learn, but be ready to have our knowledge put to the test. " Alice rubbed her eyes and looked around. " Well, who, of all things, " she said, " who ever said that? " Not a soul was in sight, but she thought she detected a secret smile on the face of the lion on the pedestal across from her. She leaned forward to have a better look. " Ugh, " said a still gruffer voice. " Look out, you have your elbow on my tail. " Alice started, and regarded the sleeping lion with amazement. " Why, Dopey, old fellow, " she said, " can — can you talk? " " Certainly I can, when there ' s anyone worth talking to, " replied Dopey, yawning. " Thank you, " said Alice, " that ' s a compliment I take it. " " You can take it, or leave it, " said Dopey, not unkindly. " It ' ll be all the same in a hundred years, " and he closed his eyes and went sound asleep again. Alice appealed to his more alert companion. " I ' ve never, " she said, " in all the time I ' ve been here, seen him awake before. Why is he asleep like that all the time? " " That ' s easy, " said Leo No. I, " that ' s because you are a good little girl, and good Page Twenty-four Alice at O.L.C. (continued) little girls don ' t come snooping around here at night. You always see me awake because I ' m the Day Lio n. But as soon as it gets real dark, he takes his turn on watch. By the time you ' re out for morning walk, of course it ' s my turn again. " " Really, no kidding? " said Alice? " No lion, " said Leo. " My, " said Alice, " what a lot you two must see and know about the school and the girls who ' ve gone here for years and years and years. Tell me what do you think of the modern girl compared with grandma when she went to school? " " Now, young lady, " said Leo, that ' s putting me on a spot. I think you ' re trying to twist my tail. But I ' ll tell you — I love ' em all alike, because there ' s not really so much difference as you could squeeze through the keyhole there. Sure, they used to trail around in long skirts and stiff shirts and big buns of hair (pardon me, chignons they were), and now they romp in sweaters and shorts and cut their hair almost like boys ' , and today they think they ' re awfully advanced, but bless you, they ' re the same good- hearted kids from year to year, and each Commencement Day when they come out here in their white dresses with roses in their arms, to have their pictures taken with Dopey and me, well, my old heart is fit to burst with pride and affection. Why, I ' ll bet you the old Dodo up there in the Dean ' s office, and all the other odd characters who teach all that learning — reeling and writhing, distraction and derision, and mystery and drawling and Laughing and Grief — I ' ll bet you they all feel the same as I do, — fair bursting with pride and wiping the mist off their spectacles. " Alice was a little doubtful, but her mind was on another track. " But " she wailed, " I often wonder what ' s the sense of learning all that stuff, just to forget a lot of it. I mean what good does it do you? Where does it get you? " " Now, now, " replied the lion, " don ' t rush, just be calm and listen to reason. Your face has got some sense in it — though it isn ' t a clever one. You can ' t expect to see results all at once. It took a long time and lots of good food and exercise for you to grow into the fine healthy girl you are now; it takes a still longer time, the best mental vitamins, and plenty of mental and spiritual exercise to make you equally healthy mentally and spiritually — qualified to be an all round useful citizen. Take care of the character, I always say, and the career will take care of itself. Yes, that ' s what I would like to tell them all on the day when they leave here for the last time. When they turn at the gate to have a last look at the castle and wave a last farewell to Dopey and me, that ' s what I ' ll be saying: " Don ' t forget — character ' s everything! " Well, this is a long speech from an old fellow like me. But it ' s from the heart, you know. And that ' s another thing — character ' s fourfold. There ' s body, mind and spirit, but don ' t forget to exercise your heart as well. Be sure your heart is in the right place, and then let it talk. Well, goodbye now " said Leo, as the deep notes of the tower bell warned all who were abroad that it was almost time for dinner. Alice raised her head and tried to gather her sleepy wits. Her Geometry had fallen from her lap and her pencil was at the bottom of the steps. When she remem- bered, she turned quickly to look at Leo, who was as usual staring down the driveway. But Alice wasn ' t quite certain — surely there was a twinkle in the corner of his eye? A voice from above shrilled, " Hey, Alice, the bell has gone. " " OK " said Alice, and she scrambled up, a little stiffly. She looked around, and, sure that no one was in sight, she bent down swiftly and planted a kiss on the top of Leo ' s head. " I won ' t forget, old thing, " she said, and streaked off for the side door. M. H. S.

BASEBALL Sharp at four o ' clock books are forgotten as the house teams stream out to the playing field. " Batter up — and we ' re off. Strike one! And watch that ball fly!!! " All are out on the field whether playing or cheering, shouting for their house. Finally after the exciting and close games the results came in as follows: Maxwell first, and Hare second. i ' age Thirty-jour BADMINTON Although all of the competition is of an inter-school nature badminton occupies a leading place in the sports activities of O.L.C. There were many participants but of course only a few could emerge victors. The important thing to remember is that the game is the thing and he who plays it straight, clean and hard is a winner even when he loses. Our salute to the champions who deserve recognition for their exceptional performances. They are: Singles winner, Lyn Rutherford with Joan Houghton as runner up; the doubles ' cup was won by Sonia Robertson and Lyn Rutherford with sec- ond place honours going to Jo. Scott and Thelma Taylor. VOLLEYBALL Immediately after baseball was finished volleyball took its place on the sports agenda. Every house entered two teams and a round robin tournament then began. The enthusiasm was large and everybody wanted a chance to " spike " that ball and score a point. As a result of this interest shown team spirit was high and the majority of the games were extremely close which proved to be rather nerve wracking for the numerous onlookers. After the tournament was over four teams were very close and so a play-off was held and the outcome was: First, Maxwell and also second, Maxwell. TENNIS This year ' s tennis turned out to be quite eventful with girls from each house par- ticipating in the tournaments which were held in the late fall. Before that the courts were in constant use and the only thing that could keep the girls off was the rain which fortunately did not come very often. Throughout the whole season true sports- manship was practiced by all and the final games were both close and exciting. The winner of the singles was Lyn Rutherford and the runner up was Marlene Deller. In the doubles the winners were Sonia Roberton and Lyn Rutherford and second Marlene Deller and Jane Nichols. FIELD DAY Mother Nature was extremely kind this year and the annual field day was run off amidst glorious sunshine. Although there were three classes, Senior, Intermediate and Junior, and numerous events to be entered into in each respective class, the meet was run off smoothly and quickly. By supper time the results had been compiled and the winners were being congratulated. Keen participation in all events made the meet very close and exciting and this interest lead to a close race for top honours in each event. Red, Blue and White ribbons were handed out to the first, second and third positions respectively. The cup winners of the three groups were as follows, Senior: 1. M. L. Coleman, 2. M. Deller, D. Springer, 3 J. Scott. Intermediate: 1. L. Rutherford, 2. J. Mothersill, 3. S. Roberton, B. Spafford. Junior: 1. N. Deller, 2. M. J. Williams, 3- C. Munro. Page Thirty-jive BASKETBALL " A " TEAM This year basketball was the outstanding sport of the year. An enthusiast interest was shown and where there is enthusiasm, there is also determination. Whether the team won or lost they always played fairly and with a keen sense of sportsmanship which is an excellent record. We travelled quite a bit this year and all games whether at home or away were very close. The season opened with Burlington High School coming here and the score ended at 26-20 for us. This started the season off to a roaring beginning and from then on it was game after game, the results of which were as follows: Moulton (26-1 9), Branksome (13-13), Hatfield (21-22) (21-6), Burlington (19-26), St. Clements (6-12), and Whitby (20-15) (9-4). A total of six games were won out of nine played — an excellent improvement over last year. The credit of the record is largely due to Miss Howson ' s excellent coaching. Without her encouragement and leadership we would have been sunk. Many thanks Miss Howson. The members of the team were: Shots, M. Deller, J. Scott, T. Taylor, and J. Far- linger; the Guards were: L. Rutherf ord (capt.), S. Roberton, J. Nichols, M. Evans, and H. Mitchell. BASKETBALL " B " TEAM The Basketball season opened this year with a lot of enthusiasm and although the team didn ' t win very many games they kept their spirits high and kept trying right to the glorious end. The team played seven games of good basketball and showed clean sportsman- ship. The games were played against Burlington (8-52) (9-33), Moulton (7-8), Branksome (6-11), St. Clements (2-6) and last but certainly not least Whitby (7-6) (9-7). Most teams would have given up hope after the first few losses and we think this team would have too if it wasn ' t for the keen interest and encouragement given them by thir coach Miss Howson. The girls that played for the team this year were: Shots: N. Chapman (Capt.), D. Springer, M. L. Coleman, G. Lake. Guards: J. Doelle, G. McLean, R. Corlett, K. Lake, and J. Murrel. SWIMMING MEET The inter-house swimming meet went off with a big splash this year. There was a large " audience " at the meet, — the faculty giving us an extra boost. Each house was well represented and only the final results were held that night as the preliminaries being held previously. The individual results turned out to be: Senior — 1. M. Deller, 2. R. Corlett, 3, P. Tulk. Intermediate — 1. D. Brouse, 2. V. McCabe, 3. A. Gostlin, and Junior — 1. N. Deller, 2. C. Munro, 3. J. Collacutt. Ruth Corlett entertained us with some ornamental swimming, and she was fol- lowed by Carol Nichol, Kay Lake and Gwen Lake who also patterned fascinating pic- tures with ornamental swimming. The house winners were: Maxwell, first; Hare, second; and lastly Farewell. Our special thanks go to Miss Howson who carefully judged each event and ended up in the pool herself — clothes and all.

We want to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Maxwell House for showing such fine spirit and co-operation, and for making the House such a success this year. Keep it up — Maxwell! a la re arouse Well, the Hares have offered a bit of competition to the other Houses — anyway we kept them guessing. Our Hares were a super bunch of kids and showed a good house spirit. In the field day last fall the Hares made a good start, coming 3rd with 72 points. Most of the girls entered into the events and showed good sportsmanship. Special congratulations go to Bervice Williams, 2nd in Junior and M. E. Coleman first in Senior. Our inter-house baseball last fall was very successful with Hare House coming in a close second. Thanks to tthe following girls for their co-operation: P. Foster, P. Franco, D. Baltuch, J. Black, N. Howlett, J. McDonald, H. Meadd, M. Osumi, K. Reeves and S. Umphreys, L. Taylor, J. Farlinger. In volleyball Hare ' s 1st team came 3rd. Thanks to the following girls: M. Baker, M. E. Coleman, D. Dunbar, M. Evans, P. Foster, A. Gostlin, N. Howlett, H. Meadd, B. Lipson, J. McDonald, D. Nourse, K. Reeves, S. Umphrey, L. Taylor and J. Farlinger. Again in the swimming meet we came in second. Our success was helped by the following girls: A. Gostlin, 3rd in the Intermediate winners, besides B. Knight, D. Nourse, M. Evans, J. Farlinger. The school basketball team came forth with a few sturdy Hares. Those who made the teams were M. Evans, G. Lake, and J. Farlinger. In the inter-house basketball Hare came through with great success, coming first, with the help of L. Taylor, B. Knight, S. Umphrey, D. Nourse, R. Gameroff, P. Foster, D. Dunbar, N. Howlett, A. Goslin, E. M. Inskip, P. Franco, and C. Jenkins. On behalf of Hare House, thanks go to the A. A. executive and Miss Howson for their sincere help. We ' d like to thank all our loyal Hares for their co-operation and sportsmanship. You ' re really a super bunch of kids and have brought Hare House up in standing this year. Let ' s cross our fingers that Hare House will win the shield soon, if not next year. They deserve it. " We ' ve got the House, we ' ve got the steam, We ' ve got the girls; we ' ve got the team, House ! Steam ! Girls ! Team ! Yeah, Hare House! " Jane Farlinger (captain) Lesley Taylor (sub-captain) Page Thirty-nine Page Vorty reams I stood on the top of the cliff and watched the sun sink out of sight leaving a cold, grey sky to quiet the earth. Looking downward I saw below me the calm black sea and the seaweed pushing gently against the rocks. A young, sad looking woman came into my sight and I watched her glide to the top of the cliff with the gracefulness and ease of the winds. She was tall and slim and had long flowing locks with the waves of the sea in them. She stood motionless near the edge of the cliff and the winds played with her golden hair and blew it softly around her face. The sky above suddenly darkened and the waters of the sea below became angry and lashed at the rocks. The wind blew stormily into the crags and I heard a thousand voices rise to a magnificent chant. The air began to thicken with mist which rolled towards the sea out of nowhere, and dots of rain were cooling the atmosphere. The woman did not move, but she stared downwards at the black sea which swirled and frothed with anger into a foreboding whirlpool. The rain began to pour down and the mist rolled and billowed up to the top of the cliff. As it reached the woman she seemed to be edged closer to the side of the cliff. She lifted her head to the heavens and a flash of lightning blinded the world momentarily. When I looked again the woman had vanished from my sight. The voices grew suddenly louder and the winds blew stronger and the whirlpool gurgled with evil. Standing on the plot where the woman had been, I looked down at the sea and I saw calmness; I felt the wind and I felt peace in the air; I saw the calm black sea and the seaweed gently pushing against the rocks and some of the seaweed was golden. Gay McLean Peace after a quarrel is like Chopin after Be-Bop Nancy Chapman Page Forty-one acjic vUorda " But have you heard the magic of a word? " These were indeed prophet j ' ivordl that greeted our ears at the commencement of a dramatic recital by Dickson-Kenwin. In the next few short hours we were to be transported into far-away lands of adventurc- and glory, sadness and joy. There we lived, laughed, and wept with the characters portrayed by the skillful old gentleman. First we were given glimpses of some Shakespearean characters. The most familiar and loved of Shakespeare s men came to life before our eyes. The melancholy Jaques from " As You Like It " , who affected such a cynical philosophy, was present in one of his most contemplative moods. From his sardonic monologue we turned to an atmosphere of suspense and pent-up emotions. Was there anyone in the audience who could not see the dagger suspended before the tormented Macbeth? The terrible struggle in his mind was clearly evident; even before the actual murder his conscience was troubling him. Barely was this portrayal of a man ' s naked soul finished, when the scene shifted and Sir John Falstaff appeared. Although Dickson-Kenwin himself is extremely slight, it was easy to visualize the corpulent old knight. The lusty humour of the drunken rogue contrasted markedly with the mental conflict of Macbeth and with the foreboding scene that followed. The " Ghost Scene " from " Hamlet " was unique in its presentation. The fact that the parts of both Hamlet and his father were taken by one actor, created an eerie illusion. The hollow tones of the ghost, while he was recounting the details of his " most foul and unnatural murder " heightened the suspense until Hamlet ' s desolate cry sent a thrill of terror running down one ' s back. It would have been no surprise to have seen Hamlet kill Claudius then and there, so wrought up was he. Following this perturbed scene, the stirring speech made by Henry V to his troops, before the battle of Harfleur, was given in all its martial glory. One was tempted to rise and fight for England, for freedom, and for Harry until the French were no more! Indeed so spent were our emotions by this time, that a lighter scene, from " The Tempest " , was welcomed gladly. Even then, the coolly calculating magician and his uncouth servant were too vividly painted to escape notice. It seemed impossible that the man who had played the young and well-bred King Henry could so quickly change into a slavering idiot. The bestial qualities present in Caliban were only too clearly brought out. One felt vaguely unclean after even being in the same room with the savage. Dickson-Kenwin retired after this sketch and reappeared in costume to put on what many considered to be the most moving performance of the evening. He literally became Cardinal Wolsey pouring forth his heart to Cromwell, his faithful secretary. It was a graphic description of a lonely old man who had given up his life to a lost cause. The eternal cry of mankind, as the door of death is opened, was heard; " Oh, that I had served my God as faithfully as my king! " While our " king " may not cor- respond with the actual monarch Wolsey meant, our souls are stirred by this common realization that treasures and honours amassed on earth will not suffice in heaven. After an intermission the actor came on stage to give his interpretation of some Dickensian characters. He gave a dialogue between the brutal Bill Sikes and the malevolent Fagin. It was the famous scene in which the perverted mind of the old Jew forced Sikes into killing his mistress. The low intellect of Sikes and the sadistic craftiness of Fagin were cleverly contrasted. The lowest elements in human life were revealed; it was not a pretty sight. All the items on the programme were psychologically contrasted; therefore a delightfully humourous glimpse was given of Mr. Wilkins Micawber and Uriah Heep. I ' ai e Forty-two Magic Words, cont ' d The pompous Mr. Micawber, so fond of high flown language, was expertly drawn, but the portrayal of the detestable Uriah Heep was most arresting. It was very easy to despise Uriah for his hypocritical assumption of humility, which in reality concealed a diabolic malignity. The Dickensian cameos came to a close with an excerpt from " A Tale of Two Cities ' ' in which Sydney Carton, transformed by unselfish love, decided to go to the guillotine to save his successful rival in love. The audience was greatly entertained by the humourous character sketch that followed. " The Charity Dinner " was a series of after dinner speeches given to the " Society for the Presentation of Blankets and Top Boots to Cannibals. ' Dickson- Kenwin in turn became a pompous, opinionated chairman, a bland and oily secretary, and an emotional Frenchman who made an elegant toast to " Ze Ladeez. " The sketches were amusing because they were so true to life; the same types of philanthropists are to be found in any organization. The evening concluded with the " Dream Scene " from " The Bells. " In this selection Dickson-Kenwin was assisted by Gladys Atwood. The play was somewhat reminiscent of the scene from Macbeth; the circumstances concerning the crime, the mental tortures of both men, and the delusions under which both were suffering, all corresponded. The stark realism of the acute distress that Mathias was undergoing was very convincing. Dickson-Kenwin responded to the applause of the audience with the recitation of the inspiring poem " If " . Thus ended our brief excursion into the magic land of words. Why ? Why do the birds change each season? Tell me why and give a reason. For in the winter when the snow is white Bluebirds make the day more bright. And in the spring on many a day You ' ll see a robin fly your way, And after all the little birds That in the summer can be heard Come the notes of the wild goose call To herald in the golden fall. Why do the birds change each season? I ' ll tell you why and give a reason. God gives to man a sign to see What season next it ' s going to be And brightens up the daily lull That otherwise is gray and dull. That ' s why the birds change each season. That ' s why and that ' s the reason. Midori Osumi Page Forty-three ofhe Ships of Jutfi e A ship came sailing o ' er the sea, Her sails were ripped, her flag in three. Bui on she battled ' gainst each wave, And from each one her life did save. But then upon a rock she dashed And all her hopes for safety smashed. Hateful, evil waves did pound Her courage, while the wind did sound The howling perils of the sea. But on she fought though ill she fared And did not once give up despaired. Then to her aid a sister ship Around her hull a rope did slip To give her courage and new hope Tor strength and life to safety grope. At last with triumph she prevailed; Upon the sea once more she sailed. For Friendship had come to her aid With Love and Kindness. The bond was made To bring her through and make the grade.

Their yards are of dirt, Their shade is from smoke, Their sunshine is fire — They ' re poverty folk. Then the clouds roll back And white snowflakes fall, Covering the world — Tenements and all. They cover the dirt! With a blanket of white. They bury the sadness Deep in the night. The children are laughing! It is God, they know, That is making them happy By sending the snow. G. McLean, XII Page Forty-five t K arden It all happened years ago and yet I can remember it as if it were yesterday. It was in 1944, a few months after my husband had been killed in a flight over France, that I decided to visit my University friend, Ken Ling at her home in China. I remember thinking also, that it was a shame she was living in China because that Oriental land had never interested me particularly and also that it was a long way from London and travelling conditions during the war were certainly not what they should have been. However, as I recall, the trip was not as bad as I had anticipated and the welcome I received at her home made me very glad I had decided to come. I had never seen so many people live together in such complete harmony before. The Chinese live very quietly, never expressing much emotion and the young are taught to revere their elders, a custom too often forgotten in my own country. I learned that my friend, Ken Ling had followed an age-old tradition in coming to University in England and that all the other thirty-six members of the family had done the same. Ken Ling had not changed at all since our University days except that she seemed even more beautiful in her natural surroundings. She was tall and thin and wore her gowns with a flowing grace achieved in the English only by pride. The colour of her skin was typically Chinese and she wore her blue-black hair in a style which we English call a " page-boy " . I think I found her soft brown eyes her most perfect feature. They had the ability to express themselves beautifully in every new situation. I enjoyed my stay there very much. I found that the Chinese live very simply and much more profitably than we English do. We read books and had long talks and went for a long walk every morning, all of which I found very enjoyable, and as I look back upon it I feel that I learned more in my stay there, than I ever had either before or since. For a Chinese, his highest privilege is to have a few hours alone in which to think about his Gods and his own life. Because my friend taught music every afternoon in the neighbouring school, I too was allowed this privilege. But as anyone knows who had suffered, it was as impossible for me to escape my grief in China as in London. Many of the afternoons I either read or took a walk in my friend ' s garden. It was on one of these latter occasions that I came to understand and love China and her people. I was wandering among the rows of flowers when I saw an elderly man whom I recognized as the head of the family. He was seated on a white bench and was busy carving an image with his gnarled hands. At length he saw me and his eyes crinkled up in a smile of kindliness as he beckoned to me to sit down beside him. At length he said, " My daughter, you English have a very peculiar habit of letting your emotions be seen from the outside. Maybe I see correctly that you are sad, no? " " Yes, most honorable Father, you perceive correctly. " " And then, my daughter, I perceive correctly also, that you love beauty as we have here in this garden? " " Yes, most honourable Father, you again perceive correctly. " " Then it is wrong, I think, my daughter, to be sad when you are surrounded by such beauty. I love this garden very dearly. It is to me like the heavenly garden of Eden in which you believe. My gods and your God wanted us always to be happy Page I ' orty fix and if he thinks it is right to hurt us, then it is only that He loves us and desires to make stronger our love for Him. " I nodded my assent and he continued. " Remember, my daughter, what our learned Father Confucius once said. ' The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials ' . Next time, when you are unhappy, think of this garden and its beauty and your sorrow will take its leave. " I can remember as if it were yesterday, walking with him through the garden while he showed me its beauties and gave me of his wealth of wisdom. It was soon after that that I left China and my new friends and returned to my home in England. Many times since then I have remembered his garden and the man who, in his wisdom, led me to happiness. Today I received a letter from Ken Ling saying that he had passed away to his heavenly garden to be with his gods. But in my heart he has not passed away. He is now showing me the beautiful things in " my garden " . M. C.

Asi me paso la vida En la playa del amor; Si le busco no le encuentro, Si le encuentro vas veloz. M arian hi. a Caragamo-Moreno Sueno de Tlavidad Desde mi cama, atravez del cristalino vidrio de mi ventana, veo aparecer tenuamente por entre los desnudos arboles, los primeros resplandores de la Madre Luna. Mas abajo, sobre el estteril cesped de mi jardin, la blancura inmaculada de la nieve marca en gracioso parece decirnos " Feliz Navidad " . Cerca de mi lecho, un pequerio radio deja oir los magicos acordes de los villancicos navidenos los cuales me son interrumpidos constantemente por los cantos alegres y alborozados gritos del populacho pueblerino. En el horizonte se ven resplandecer con graciosa magni- ficencia millares de luminosas estrellitas que son arrojadas al espacio por la fuerza de los fuegos artificiales. Todo el mundo canta, baila y se divierte como tributo de amor al pequehuelo que apartado del rancor del mundo descansa sobre el pajar de un humilde pesebre. Yo en cambio estoy sola. Tengo por unico companero a este cuarto que sabe de mis tristezas y alegrias. Esta noche, el me ha dicho que en vez de divagar en la congoja de me abatimiento, saiga a divertirme con el resto de los seres que rinden homenaje al redentor del mundo, mas yo me he negado y mi alma permanecera triste y abandonada hasta que tu la llenes con la presencia de tu flgura, esa flgura que hace relampaguear de emocion hasta la ultima fibra de mis entranas. ! Oye! ? No oes nada? Que son esos golpes que me llenan de angustia y. desesperadon ? Sera el viento que agota sin piedad el afeizar de mi ventana, o seran acaso los fuertes latidos de mi corazon que solo palpita por ti. ! Mira ! Porque se va la luz ! Porque esa tiniebla que todo lo acapare va en- valviendo paulatinamente la claridad de mi alcoba? Parece como si algo hiciera su, aparicion. En medio de la oscuridad distingo una silueta . . . Sera acaso la de un hombre? . . . Salto de mi cama y me dirijo hacia ella esperando que esa figura sea la tuya, pero de pronto ... me detengo aterrorizada, y tristemente veo que no eres tu, y de eso estoy segura, pues no oigo tus pasos, ni aspiro tu perfumado aliento que enerva con santifkada dulzura. ! Pero, si no eres tu, ? Quien Sera? Acaso sera un espiritu que maligno proposito ha venido a perturbar mi sueno. Sin mover mucho mi fatigado cuerpo, vuelvo a mi nido. Tengo miedo. Quiero gritar mas esos gritos que pugnan por brotar de mi garganta quedan atascados en mis labios; toco mi f rente, y mis dedos temblorosos quedan pegados al vapor de mi sudor que gota por gota va humedeciendo mi palida faz. Ya no oigo ni los tonos alegres de la canciones navidehas, ni los ensordecedores gritos del pueblo enloquecido, entonces mi cuerpo desprendido por la fuerza y el sentido se dobla como un cisne hasta caer suavemente en el duro de la madera. No se cuanto tiempo permaneci inconsiente, pero cuando desperte la luna se despedia con sus ultimos fulgores y el sol, magnestuoso, hacia su, presencia de Astro Rey sobre el limpido azul tiniendo de nacar. Mas tarde cuando me menteestuvo en completo descanso, trate de invocar lo que quizas fue un sueno o una pesadilla, mas en mi mente solo envadia el pensamiento de futuras delicias que me brindaba el nuevo dia: tu presencia.

Three years are not sufficient to colour them with the quaintness which renders school-day recol- lections such amusing recitals. And so, instead of " I remember " , may I say " thank you. " We have joined in other worship services, played on other teams and had other teachers. Other ivied towers are our school-homes now, but we know that the tremen- dous privilege is ours because of your patience and encouragement. You did much more for us than indicate the path to social and economic success. Of course, we had to pass our examinations but that was not the criterion of a com- plete education at our school. You gave us answers to more ultimate questions than those in our text books. The acceptance of responsibility which originated with a democratic student government led us to the awareness of a much greater responsibility. Our individual efforts will be small indeed, but they will be an answer to the challenge of our Christian religion. We are charged to do our best to justify the efforts of those who offered us the opportunity to make our lives count. Other gifts, too, you gave us. We appreciate the good friends who grew with us as we learned to live together, memories of the beautiful grounds where we played and the familiar strains of the school song in the vesper-hour hush. These things have become a part of us just as we are a part of you. There is no person who shares in the life of an institution but leaves some token of his presence within it. We are grateful then, not only for our friends and our teachers, but for all those who went before them and who established the traditions and standards of OLC, which make it a school deserving our affection and esteem. Rich as you have made us in friend and in memories, our gratitude goes out to you, our Alma Mater, for something much deeper. You gave us not only the means to academic success, but also, a higher purpose in life. You gave us our first glimpse of " the truth which makes us free.
