DIARY Dear Diary, I am the little secret guest of all the happenings that take place within our College, and if you will promise to keep very quiet, I will tell you some of them. Dear Diary, September 9 Old friends were met and new friends made in the gym tonight. After games and singing the best part of the evening came — the food. At the end of the evening with everyone feeling happy and quite at home, we toddled wearily to bed. Dear Diary, September 12 We all started out in the direction of the lake today to have a pic- nic. The girls were all decked in their slacks and crazy hats. The new girls were very anxious to see the lake, but we never did see it. As the wind blew in our direction and the rain in the other, we had to finally return home wet and disappointed, to have our lake less picnic in ourrec- room. Dear Diary, September 18 Mr. Le Roy Toll honoured us with his 3-D pictures that he had taken during his summer vacation. Dear Diary, September 20 Jessie Trumper had us in a land of sweet blossoms and music, while she related to us her most wonderful experience during her Coronation trip. Dear Diary, September 25 I hope you will sympathize with me today, for not knowing what I was getting into, when I, with the rest of the new girls, found that we had no friends among the old girls of O.L.C. They really treated us badly today. They mode us fix their beds, clean their shoes, bow to them and every time that we saw them at the table we had to eat a square meal with a spoon. That was only part of it; they made us dress like scarecrows. All the birds and insects from miles around hid when they saw us in the yard. This was our initiation; we will have the chance to initiate the new girls next year. Tonight in the gym the old girls showed some real talent. Marilyn Reader and Margaret Cameron sang for us. Andy MacMillan led her little group of players through a couple of scenes in the Lab. The star of the show was the one and only Jo Meyer and he r human car. After some dif- ficulty, she managed to get it to start, but when everything seemed to be going fine the tires one after the other went flat; for Jo this was too much, so her human car had to be taken off the road. The evening ended with cookies, ice cream and laughter. Dear Diary, October 2 Mr. Wilson McDonald was here tonight and recited many of his poems. They were both touching and humorous. We were very sorry when the evening was ended because all the girls agree that he is a wonderful poet. (Continued on Page 1 1) -9-

DIARY (Continued) Dear Diary, October 3 The new girls ' turn came to see some talent tonight in the gym. The exaggerated arrival of students to O.L.C. was a panic. Dear Diary, November 4 For the past month everyone has been very busy knitting, sewing or making article that could be sold at the S.CM. Bazaar which took place this afternoon. Marianela Van de Wal I (sure seems funny to call her by that name!) opened the Bazaar. I had to laugh because fifteen minutes after the Bazaar was opened the home-cooking table was empty; and it wasn ' t the guests who bought the food! Another feature of the bazaar that I liked was the Parcel Post table. Old girls and friends of the College sent in parcels, and they were placed on the table in the same wrappings that they arrived in. Nobody had a clue as to what she was buying, but those who were fortunate enough to get a parcel were pleased with the contents. Jenny and Mi Ida read tea cups. They sure can string a good line. The Bazaar was a success and I ' m glad because Marilyn and her executive worked hard. After dinner we had one of those community concerts. The Songmen were the guest artists and they were just terrific! I ! I wish we could have them at more of our concerts. They seem to have such a good time while they are singing that it increases one ' s own enjoyment. My favourite is " Mango Walk " . I remember when they sang it last year, everyone went wild — they got the same reaction from the kids this year. Wish they could come again sometime. Mrs. Cooper says it is time for " lights out " ; it ' s eleven o ' clock I Shameful! Night, Diary. Dear Diary, November 27 Am I ever going to be normal again? I ' ve been walking on a cloud ever since I woke up this morning and realized that today, November 27, day of the Holly Hop had finally come. This afternoon was so busy! Everyone was rushing around washing stockings, pressing dresses, and some were off to get their hair done. Finally it was time for the boys to arrive. If it was possible, I think everyone was twice excited. And now, only a few hours later it is all over — but there are plenty of memories! The decorations were really smart, especially the candy-stripe background. Jack Renton sure does play dreamy music! Everyone seemed to have such a good time, or maybe it ' s because I was looking at everything through a rosy haze. (Come down to earth, kid, exams are not very far away — perish the thought!) Even the blind dates turned out well. How well, we ' ll know by the number of visitors in the reception room on Sundays. Dear Diary, ^ ^ December 13 I can ' t believe it is almost Christmas again. Tonight in Chapel we had the candle-lighting ceremony. It certainly was impressive, but I got dizzy standing so long in the hot, d ark room with the candle flickering all around. Dear Diary, December 18 Christmas Dinner once again! It ' s always so much fun to get dressed (Continued on Page 13) -11-
