Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1955 volume:

FOREWORD Once more it is an honour to write a foreword to VOX COLLEGII. I must picture you as in the midst of June - and I would like to be able to say, " Congratulations " , assuming that you have passed your examinations! But at this distance (it is only February) I know that much has to be done before that realization. Yet, you will agree with me that whatever the result be for you, it will have been to a large extent the measure of your effort. You will mark down this year in your diary for several reasons. First, " the old order changeth " ; this will be the last year before we adopt the Semester system, and I can hear some of you saying that you wish you could be starting again, in order to feel the thrill of working at three subjects instead of six or more at one time. Secondly, you will remember this year because of the beginning made upon our new Chapel and classrooms. For five years I have envisioned the final goal and now it is within our grasp. I shall be looking forward to the first Trafalgar Service in the Chapel in May of next year. For what does our school stand? Students and readers, 1 give you three words - VERITAS, VIRTUS, VENUSTAS - " Truth, virtue, loveliness " , translated, as you know, out of our Trafalgar Song. If you fill the first with the truth about all things, the final, ultimate value that is to be found in God alone, and if you understand the second with- in the framework of the Sermon on the Mount, and if you clothe the last with that radiance which comes from within " Because the heart is pure " , then you will have a motto to live by, and excellence to meditate upon, and an inspiration " to make your- self big. " S. L. Osborne - 2 - SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL " We will fight on the beaches; we will fight on the landing fields; we will fight in the fields, in the streets, and in the hills; and, if necessary, withdraw to our empire and continue the fight; but WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER. " Thus spoke Winston Spencer Churchill, orator, soldier, diplomat, and writer, the embodiment of British courage, and determination, in that dark hour of 1940, when Britain and her Commonwealth partners stood alone in the path of a swift tide of conquest rolling over Europe. For one agonizing year the fate of humanity depended upon the organizing ability of one man, and the ears of a world in suspense hung upon his forceful words. He inspired the morale of the B ritish people, re -organized their government, unified and ex- panded their war effort, won allies, and raised the hopes of an enslaved continent. Winston Churchill was in character, ancestry, and experience fitted for his task, a man of untiring energy, rugged physique, indomitable will, keen sense of humour, and complete absence of fear. His military experience in South Africa and as First Lord of the Admiralty in World War I, his heritage from his illustrious father, Randolph Churchill, and his famous ancestor, The Duke of Marlborough, his intimate knowledge of Europe, and of British traditional policy, assisted in his plan of campaign, and in the " Big Four " con- ferences which turned the tide in 1942 and closed the circle in 1945. Through peril by air, sea, and under the sea, on battle-scarred fronts, and strategic outposts, through bomb-scarred cities, darkened streets, weary days and nights of toil, tears, and terror, the stalwart figure of " Winnie " with the " V " signal, carried on to Victory. His detailed memoirs are a priceless contribution to history; and his post-war leader- ship has placed the feet of England on the path to recovery and Europe -- we hope -- on the path to unity. He longs to see harmony, peace, and prosperous co -existence in the world which he has done so much to save. A grateful sovereign persuaded him to accept a title, and Sir Winston Churchill wore the honour proudly in the coronation procession at the head of his beloved Commonwealth. No doubt Sir Winston will soon, at the age of eighty, resign his position as Prime Minister of Britain; but in spirit he will continue like Tennyson ' s Ulysses: " How dull it is to pause, to make an end. To rust unburnish ' d, not to shine in use. As tho ' to breathe were life. Life piled on life Were all too little, and of one to me Little remains: And tho ' We are not now that strength which in the old days Moved Heaven and Earth; that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts. Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield. Rena McDowell - 3 - THE FOUR PREFECTS YEAR BOOK STAFF EDITORIAL " You have eyes with which to see, but you rarely use them. " This is a saying which no doubt everyone has heard at some time or other. But unfortunately very few people fol- low it. Most of us live in our own small world, seeing only what immediately concerns us. We go about our daily tasks, and follow our set routine rarely pausing to look beyond our small world. But, when we do, what a lot there is to see! We are happy in our own world, but happier we will be if we learn to get along with other people, and snare in their happiness. Also, Mother Nature has much joy to offer, es- pecially to those who appreciate beauty. The wealth of knowledge which surrounds us will make our lives more interesting if we come to read and learn. Aesthetic pleasure can be derived from literature, music and art. Sometimes we observe things which do not give us joy. Such things are the sufferings and terrible hardships endured by people who are not so fortunate as ourselves. Many do not like to think that such unpleasantness exists, and they shut their eyes to it all. We mustn ' t do this. It is our duty to open our eyes, and to try to help improve the lot of our fellow man. If we look around even harder, we notice the grave political situation of the world. This is something we must not ignore. One cannot procrastinate on this subject. One should read widely to try to understand about politics and world affairs. One should a bo follow government procedures and party politics. When it comes time to vote, one should choose wisely and judge carefully; in other words, exercise one ' s power in the best direction. We Canadians are fortunate people. We live in a magnificent country under very favourable conditions. Few realize this. Instead they grumble about small, petty things. If such people could only see how foolish they are being, and would open their eyes to ob- serve, not only with their eyes, but with their minds, this would be a much better world. — Margaret Cole 6 - Sandra Boegal Kitchener, Ontario Senior Matriculation Farewell House 1954-55 Sandra was her room-mate were inseparable this year; where one was, so was the other, Sandra was assistant editor of this yearbook and a faithful member of the choir. It ' s Western for Sandy next year. Pet Aversion: No letters from Toronto. Pet Saying: Where ' s my roomie? Margaret Cole Senior Matriculation Sao Paulo, Brazil Hare House 1951-55 Marg, a real " brain " hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has had a very hard job this year as editor of our yearbook, but has made a fine job of it. Best of luck to her in her future plans! Pet Aversion: Planes that leave on time. Pet Saying: " Golly, I wish I were home! " Phyllis CuUen Senior Matriculation North Bay, Ontario Hare House 1951-55 Phyl was the giggler of the Senior Class, but managed to do a wonderful job, between laughs, as Senior Class President. She will always be remembered for her school spirit, and for her faithful support to the Post Office. Next year, it ' s Normal School in North Bay. Pet Aversion: Silence. Pet Saying: " Oh, the pain! " Suzanne Eckel Senior Matriculation Kitchener, Ontario Hare House 1953-55 As President of the S.C.M. this year. Sue has dedicated most of her spare time to the organization of its activities -- the successful fall bazaar, and the spending of our chapel col- lection. We wish her the best of luck in Pharmacy at U. of T. next year. Pet Aversion: Science (in general). Pet Saying: " No, Lindy, no! " - 7 - Frances Eve Somerset, Bermuda Senior Matriculation Maxwell House 1954-55 Frances ' British accent distinguished her from the other girls of O.L.C. She was a member of Maxwell House and lib- rarian of the choir. Next year, if she can tear herself away from ihese beloved ivy-covered walls, she intends to go to Teachers ' College in Toronto, Pet Aversion: Waiting for a cancellation. Pet Saying: Who? What? Valerie Haines Senior Matriculation Toronto, Ontario Maxwell House 1954-55 It is hard enough to change schools in the middle of the year, but to transfer in your senior year after you have been in the hospital for one and a half months is much worse. Val had her leg in a cast from October to February, but, in spite of this handicap, she took her place in lines, hopping in and out of chapel and meals with the aid of her crutches. A keen sense of humour made Val a welcome addition to our Senior Class. Pet Aversion: Copying chemistry notes. Pet Saying: " Oh, that ' s not hard. " Olive Kaiser Music Course Colbourne, Ontario Farewell House 1954-55 Kitty didn ' t arrive until October, but it didn ' t take inng for her to get used to the Seniors ' unusual ways. Greek Liners, Canadian troops in Germany, and her trip through Europe were her favourite topics of conversation. Olive held the position of Secretary Treasurer of the Okticlos Club this year. Pet Aversion: Ants. Pet Saying: " Oh, those room-mates of mine! " Suzanne Lecky Senior Matriculation Haileybury, Ontario Maxwell House 1953-55 Sue could be found anywhere around O.L.C. where there was a piano available. Besides working hard on her piano this year, she kept busy as the President of the Okticlos Club. Sue liked a good joke, and her giggling was a familiar sound around the school. She is going to take the course in Arts at University next year. Pet Aversion: Time Pet Saying: " Oh, isn ' t that exciting? " - 8 - Belinda Long Comnnercial Course Toronto. Ontario Farewell House 1953-55 Our fair-haired Lindy has been with us for two years now. As Captain of Farewell and yearbook-typist, she has worked hard. Lindy has spent most of her time in the Commercial Room this year, and hopes to get her music degree next year. Pet Aversion: Air-wick. Pet Saying: " Now listen, Sue. " Martha Mitchell Senior Matriculation Peterborough, Ontario Farewell House 1953-55 Martha was the quiet, industrious member of the Senior Class and as its Secretary-Treasurer did a wonderful job. This year she could often be found fast asleep in her room, number one Main. Next year, O.L.C. ' s loss is Queen ' s gain. Pet Aversion: Bells. Pet Saying: " Oh, I think that ' s a howl. " Claire Morden Senior Matriculation Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Farewell House 1954-55 Claire, Vice-President of the S.C.M., hails from the Soo. This year she could usually be found in the Lab poring over a course of study. Next year she plans to train for a nurse at Kingston General. Best of luck, Claire. Pet Aversion: Four periods a day with Mr. Carroll. Pet Saying: " We ' d better clean this room. " Carolyn Siegner Senior Matriculation Kitchener, Ontario Farewell House 1954-55 Carolyn, who hails from Kitchener, was well known this year for her poems about the Seniors. Her gift for writing has been realized in that this year she was Social Events ' Editor of Vox Collegii. She plans to enter the teaching profession upon graduating from O.L.C. Pet Aversion: Mice in waste paper baskets. Pet Saying: " I had only two hours sleep last night. " - 9 - Joanne Strowger Whitby, Ontario Senior Matriculation Maxwell House 1953-55 Joanne had a very busy year this year as advertising man- ager of our yearbook, pianist for our Chapel Services, music student and matriculation candidate with ten papers. Her plans for the future are marriage mainly. Pet Aversion: People who ask for blind dates at the last minute. Pet Saying: " Oh, my goodness! ! " Jessie Trumper .Senior Matriculation Colombia, South America Hare House 1950-55 It is quite obvious that •Malt " , who has been at O.L.C. for five years now, is respected, well-liked, and " " loads of fun " . As Head Girl this year, she has set a fine example for the rest of the school. Jess intends to enter Radcliffe College next year. Best of luck! Pet Aversion: Diets. Pet Saying: " Oh, guess what, kids! " Bernadine Wilkin Senior Matriculation Spanish Point, Bermuda Hare House 1951-55 Bernie was our cheerful A. A. President who hailed from sunny Bermuda. She has been an old familiar face in the halls of O.L.C. ever since 1951, and a loyal member of Hare House. Bernie was responsible for many of our gay moments when she brightened up our gloomy atmosphere (during exams) with her ever joyful " Hi Kids. " Pet Aversion: Announcements. Pet Saying: " Goody. " Marilyn Windrim Senior Matriculation Peterborough, Ontario Maxwell House 1954-55 Lynn is one of our personality girls from out Peterborough way. she was a new addition to O.L.C. this year, but got right into the swing of things by being elected Senior Class Vice- President, she is also a proud member of Maxwell House, and another one of our " fuU-of-fun girls. " Pet Aversion: People who are late. Pet Saying: " Oh! " - 11 - LI G, Ht our O " 30 P M - 12 - SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY How could ten years pass so quickly? It seems like only yesterday that the class of ' 55 was all gathered together at O.L.C. and now we are all scattered in many directions. Even I am kept busy in Berlin selling Schneider ' s hot dogs to the German Shepherds. I still cannot speak German, and if it were not for my personal interpreter, Olive Kaiser, who has had experiences in all parts of Germany because of her connection with the Armed Forces, I would be at a complete loss. There are five more of us enjoying the sophisticated life of Europe. The trip to Europe that Sue Eckel made in ' 55 opened the door to a new life for her. She is now the Olympic skating star of Southern Siberia, and has recently been awarded the Gold Hammer and Sickle because of her work in pharmacy research in Russia. It looks as if Lindy Long j ust could not bear to leave her roommate alone in Europe. Lindy is in England, and is quite a military figure. Her valuable training as the Farewell House Captain has been responsible for Lindy becoming Captain Delinda Long of the British Army. She got this rank by introducing the house point system to her division. Phyllis CuUen and Sandra Boegel are in England, too. They are running a detective agency, second only to Scotland Yard. Their establishment is called " Fearless Fosdick In- corporated " , and they specialize in locating lost jewellery - rings and things, you know. In her spare time, Phyllis is teaching Sandy how to make canopy beds in an old abandoned awning factory near their offices. Jessie Trumper inhabits this side of the Atlantic Ocean, too. She is using her French to make a living. She works in a pet shop in Paris translating the French Poodles ' conver- sation into English for the tourists. Jess always did like animals. Margaret Cole is using that mathematical brain to very good advantage. She is the chief adding machine inspector in a factory, in North Bay. In her spare time, she is editing a book called " My Experiences with a Bunsen Burner " . Her position as Yearbook Editor in ' 55 must be paying off. Two of the grads, are pursuing careers in music, and are well established too, Joanne Strowger Is the president of the Piano Tuners ' Association of Whitby and has re- cently completed a tour of inspection of the practice rooms of O.L.C. She could not break away from her Alma Mater. Sue Lecky has made her home in Hollywood. When George passed away, Liberace needed a helper; so. Sue is kept busy polishing candelabras between Liberace ' s TV ap- pearances. Who knows? Maybe in the very near future. Sue will be taking violin lessons instead of piano lessons. Hollywood is the home of two more of our class. Bernadine Wilkin, of all people, is one. When she is not uking care of Junior, she works in the Publicity Department of the Jeff Chandler Fan Club. She finds licking stamps for his autographed pictures a pretty dry job. Martha Mitchell has found her way into a movie studio, too. Martha was always crazy over horses and now she is a veterinary in charge of the horses that Marlon Brando uses in his western pictures. Valerie Haines or it should be Doctor Haines frequents the draughty corridors of the Toronto General Hospital. She has a very good position mixing plaster for leg casts in the Emergency Ward, and has made a name for herself by developing colored casts to match patients ' wardrobes. A colorful character that Valerie Haines I Down at Kingston, Claire Morden is Assistant Superintendent to the Assistant Super- intendent of Nurses and seems to be enjoying her role as an " angel of mercy 7. The only thing that bothers her are the bars on the hospital windows - they depress her! And last week there was a prison riot ! - 13 - Frances Eve , as you may know, is a teacher. It seems after she finished Teachers ' College in Hamilton, she did not want to leave that fair city; so, she is teaching P.T. at the Old Peoples ' Home there. She says it is good for her figure. Last, but not least. Miss Lynn Windrim comes to my attention. Her Home Economics training that year at O.L.C. is responsible for her present day position puffing wheat at the Quaker Oats Company in Peterborough. As a hobby she is trying to develop odourless Limberger Cheese, So you see, the graduates of 1955 have become very successful in the business world of today. And as a famous statesman once said, " Never has such great confusion been created by so few in such a short time " or something like that! -- Carolyn Siegner VALEDICTORY Our Graduation is a time for reviewing the past years we have spent here at Trafalgar Castle. With Tennyson ' s line in mind, " I am a part of all that I have met, " we graduates ask ourselves -- What have we met here at O.L.C? Along with our academic life, we have come in contact with many situations which will give us the experience to cope with the problems we will meet in everyday life. Three main aspects of our school life which, I think, are very influential are Friendliness, Co-operation and Tradition. First. Friendliness: Visitors to our College are generally impressed with the spirit of friendliness shown to all newcomers. From the moment a new girl comes into the school students, faculty and staff make a special effort to help the girl feel at home and part of the family. We are fortunate in being a comparatively small school enabling faculty and students to work together on a close friendly basis for the good of our college. Secondly, Co-operation: Co-operation is a necessary part of living, whether you reside in a small town, or in a busy metropolis. It plays a nnajor role in dispelling suspi- cion, which causes misunderstandings, which, in their turn, lead to wars. If you can learn to get along with 84 females, you will certainly be well prepared to take your place in any community in which you choose to reside. Thirdly, Tradition: We who are privileged to attend, and to graduate from, O.L.C. have much to be proud of. Our school has been built on tradition. The traditional e vents around which our school activities revolve tell us the time of the year. In the fall we look forward to the Christmas Dinner, with its Candle -Lighting and Boar ' s Head Processions, familiar carols and Tableau. In the Spring, the Senior Dinner and May Court Festival are talked about and prepared for weeks in advance. Graduation Day is a culmination of events held in honour of the Graduates - teas, our visit to the Church of the Bay, Baccalaureate Sunday, Class Day and our breakfast down at the lake. Tradition inspires pride, and makes us all feel part of a continuous pattern. Although " old girls " and graduates who revisit the school may not recognize the faces, there is no strangeness because the ties of tradition bind us all together whether we are 15 or 50. Traditions provide us with foundations on which we may build our lives -- one of these foundations is loyalty to our Alma Mater. These three - Friendliness, Co-operation and Tradition have become a part of all of us --we have met them here at O.L.C. ONTARIO LADIES ' COLLEGE CHOIR - 17 - STUDENT CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT Under the encouraging faculty ad- viser. Miss R. McDowell, the O.L.C. repre- sentation of the World-wide Student Christian Movement had one of its most successful years. The Fall Bazaar held on November 20th, was particularly a success. Hand-made articles such as knitted goods, aprons, pennants, and stuffed toys helped to bring in large proceeds which were readily distributed to such organizations as Care, Hurricane Fund, Save the Children, etc. The Sunday Evening Chapel Services this year have been well packed with Chris- tian guidance, human interest and humour. For the most part of the services. Dr. Osborne conducted sing songs of the favorite hymns of the students. He followed these with short sermons on Christian Living which the students found most helpful. Human interest came out in the topics of Dr. Otvos, a member of the staff at the Ontario Hospital; Mr. Smith, a student minister and Mr. Ferguson, a missionary in Angola, Africa. Dr. Otvos spoke on conditions in his homeland, Roumania, during the war years. His speech painted vivid pictures of his at- tempt to escape the Nazis. Mr. Smith gave a humorous account of his trials and tribulations as a student minister in the Canadian West. It was hardly what one would expect. The seniors put forth many questions, and as a result, Mr. Smith was invited to the Senior Class meeting following, where they were an- swered. His topic was humorous as well as educational. In another part of the world, Africa, the United Church is also working. Mr. Ferguson from Angola gave an account of his duties as a missionary, and brought us right on the scene by showing colored slides. The students realized just how much work has to be done in other parts of the world and how difficult it is to carry on in such conditions as in Africa. A different but important aspect of " appearance " was described by Mrs. Kemp of Whitby. She stated that the inside ap- pearance of a girl, was just as important as the outside. There wasn ' t one girl who could afford to miss the subject. Elly Bradley from the University of Toronto explained the Older Boys Parlia- ment meetings at O.L.C. during the Christ- mas holidays. He thanked Dr. Osborne for the use of the school for such an event, and mentioned that the boys had a wonderful time during their stay. The S.C.M. Committee of the year hopes that the succeeding group will have a year as interesting and as enjoyable as we have had during ' 54 and ' 55. Suzanne Eckel OKTICLOS This year we had a live group of eager members. Our meetings never lacked performers. Mr. Atkinson ' s students played piano selections for us. Miss Vance ' s students both played and sang, and girls from Mrs. Aymong ' s classes gave readings. We all found it good experience to perform in front of others. In the moments before a meeting, music from the practice-rooms floated out windows on all sides of the building. When we came downstairs on a Wednesday at five o ' clock, it was with great glee that we fetched cushions from the men ' s washroom. Helping hands were swift with the chairs in the concert hall for the Canadian Concert Series. What to wear to this concert, or that, was a good topic of conversation. All this shows the enthusiasm given as a group. After the advanced students ' recital, I wrote in my diary; " What an exciting even- ing this has been. You should have seen the pink and pastel puffs, and all the flounce and bounce in the hall tonight. We all wore our formal dresses, so that the concert hall was just floating with pretty flutter. " We had last year ' s president, Marilyn Reader sing for us -- oh, it was beautiful! Margaret Cameron and Elaine Miller sang, too. Elaine played Mozart, Mollie played Mendelssohn, Joanne, Chopin; and Mary and - 18 - the organ became one, when Bach ' s lovely F major Prelude and Fugue rolled forth. Olive Kaiser introduced C.P.E. Bach with the well-known, Solfeggietto, which Mr. A. accompanied on a second piano. The choir provided the top thr ill of the evening when they led us happily, dreamily, amongst pale moon-beams and gently colored sunshine. To close, we sang our school song composed by our distinguished principal. This really brought us to a height of me- lody, color and emotion, for 1 did see the glisten of a teardrop. At the time of writing this we are still looking forward to another student re- cital in May. We were proud and happy to see the advanced students move ahead so quickly. Karen Munro and Beth Yearley passed their Grade 8; Mary Harper shone with first class honours in Grade 9, and is trying the Grade 10 in May, as well as the A.R.C.T. in organ; Joan CoUacutt will also try the Grade 10 in May; Mollie Millar and Joanne Strowger are off to a good start for the A. R.C.T. teacher ' s diploma next year. The success of the Okticlos Club has been due to th e wonderful effort of Mr. Atkinson, Dr. Osborne, and the other teach- ers and the eagerness and ability of the students. Since Mr. Atkinson has been a part of the school for forty-four years and founder of the Okticlos, we feel, now that he is leaving us, that some of the strength of a stone wall is leaving, too. He has laid a sturdy foundation and we hope to carry on to his credit. As head of the music department in the school, he worked with us at music les- sons on Wednesday, at extra lessons, at auditions, in preparation for recitals, Christ- mas festivals and graduation. He was pre- sent at concerts and ever ready to accom- pany on the organ or piano. We appreciate also Mrs. A ' s help with technique, and her advice to students in her field of teaching beginners. We are very sorry that Mr. A. is leaving us, and very thankful for his great kindness and his work, but especially are we thankful for the fun and good will which he so freely radiated. CHOIR Sing! Sing! Sing! Music, work and travel. What could be more fun for the members of our school choir? The music we have learned this year has given us a varied and interesting repertoire. The work and the travel should be classed as a neces- sary part of the enjoyment, for performance was our goal. These performances have taken us to Agincourt, where we sang at a Sunday even- ing church service; to Oshawa where we gave a Christmas programme over the radio, and to Gravenhurst, where we gave a con- cert in the United Church. Dr. Osborne and Miss Vance, as well as the choir, took, part. The trip to Gravenhurst was a great deal of fun in every way. After all our practising one could hardly believe we would sing continually on the bus, but we did, accom- panied by ukeleles, mouth organs, and combs. We arrived at Gravenhurst at four o ' clock, did some more practising, and after an hour and a half of free time, met at Sloan ' s Restaurant for a wonderful dinner. From there we returned to the church for our concert. After it was over, we were served refreshments; then, started on our way back. It was very late when we ar- rived home, and we were a very sleepy group, but the trip was worth it. We hope to go to Oshawa and then to Port Hope before our year is over. Besides going out to sing we have also taken part in school projects such as our Christmas Festival, the Okticlos Concert and Graduation. Our success is due to Dr. Osborne who has so ably directed us and made our event- ful year possible. Mollie Millar - 19 - STUDENTS ' COUNCIL THE STUDENT COUNCIL Elections for Class Presidents were held a few weeks after school opened; our execu- tive was chosen at the same time. Before we realized it, it was time to make preparations for the Holly Hop, which was held in the first week of November this year. For doing such a wonderful job in decorating the dining-room with the huge mural and pictures carrying out our theme of " Pogo " , the Art Class certainly earned the praise given them. Thanks are also due to the committees and individuals who worked to make our dance a success. This year there was no Honour Club. In past years it has not meant anything to the girls. I feel that the signing of a piece of paper is not going to influence a girl to uphold the name of the school; only her actions and attitude will be a measure of her loyalty. O.L.C. is noted for its friendly atmosphere. This year there has been an extra feel- ing of warmth developed by the close co-operation of faculty, staff and students which has made this year a memorable one to all. - 20 - THE DIARY September 14 - Afternoon. Dear Diary: Today was opening day at O.L.C. and the first day for many of the students. What confusion! The " old girls " were running around renewing old acquaintances and the " new girls " - well, let us just say that they were running around in a daze! Evening: After supperwe had a " get-acquainted party " in the gytn. Who could help but get acquainted amidst all the games and fun! I guess I will have to practise bowling be- cause I could not seem to aim anywhere near those pins; maybe I need glasses. However, bedtime soon arrived. Everyone found her roommate, found a bed to sleep in, and went to sleep as soon as the " lights out " bell sounded I think. September 18. Dear Diary: We just got in from a picnic --a big picnic, too. All of O.L.C. hiked down to the lake for outdoor games and a supper of hot dogs with all the trimmings. It was rather cold, and the lake was rough. I wonder how many girls I heard say, " I wonder how Marilyn Bell did it! " We did not try any swimming, but we did have loads of fun and trudged back to school, tired but happy, September 21. Dear Diary: A week of school routine has gone by, and I feel that I should mention bells. You know, I used to like bells, but now I think they ' re cruel. That 7:10 a.m. bell is not good for people with hearts like mine, or for anyone with a heart. It is so early in the morning! The other bells are fairly accept- able. I guess that our theme song should be, " You ' ll Get Used to It. " September 24 - -after four. Dear Diary: The new girls will never be new again. We are old and very tired after the exhausting experience of being initiated. The old girls turned tyrant as they ordered us to put on pyjamas (inside out, of course), one oxford and one running shoe, to do our hair in pin curls and braids with an earring dangling from one ear. We looked different, to say the least. We had to do everything from shining shoes to making beds, and when we saw an old girl -- well, if we did not bow three times and do a Charleston step, it almost meant three years in the Siberian salt mines. After doing the bunny hop down to the gate and back, we staggered into the dining room only to find that we had to eat a square meal with a spoon. I can safely say that I do not think too many of the new girls ate much tonight. We were told that if we did not do everything indicated, it would mean a penalty at the old girls ' stunt. Needless to say, there will be quite a few penalties. September 24 -- evening. Dear Diary: O.L.C. has had an invasion! At least, there were some strange looking sights at the old girls ' stunt tonight. We had, among other acts, a strange looking ballet team, consisting of Jessie Trumper and Sue Eckel, who tried to dance, and I use the term lightly. Then there was that brand new 1925 model T that just could not make it across the gym floor no matter how faith- fully Andy MacMillan tried. I think that the " tires " were worn out. Of course, there was some good ta- lent, too. Bernadine and Ruby danced to a la Bermuda and Edith Weisz and Diana Lazarus did a cute Spanish dance routine. I cannot mention everyone, but I can say that everyone was very good. I wonder what the new girls will come up with? - 21 - DIARY - Continued October 1. Dear Diary: Tonight the new girls had a chance to display their talents. We saw everything from crazy mixed - up songs to wrestling matches. I think that we might have a new Cole Porter in the person of Jane Carruthers, who wrote some new words to the song, " You ' ll Get Used to It. " 1 guess one might say here that ex- perience is the best teacher. I feel scratchy every time I think of Pat Atkinson as the tramp in the park bench sequence. Fleas, anyone? Everyone taking part was at her best and it was a fun-packed evening. I would not be a bit surprised if vaudeville comes back --at O.L.C. anyway. October 16. Dear Diary: I am writing this entry tonight by candlelight as all the lights are out. It has been quite a week-end here at O.L.C. -- " Hurricane Hazel " paid us a visit! Last night the wind howled so loudly, and the rain poured down in such torrents, that I thought we would find ourselves floating along the shores of Lake Ontario. But O.L.C. stood firm, and I am glad; it is cold outside! " Hazel " had her advantages too; all the food in the freezer had to be eaten up. We had chicken and loads of ice cream to munch on. Imagine, a chicken dinner by candlelight, and in a girls ' school, too! (1 might mention here that the chicken was not eaten raw --we have gas stoves.) It is very eerie walking along the halls tonight. I have seen at least two ghosts. Funny, though, they resemble the girls, somehow. Well, I hope the lights come on soon, I have homework to do October 23. Dear Diary: It is late at night and my light should be out, but I must tell you about the dance which we held for the Trinity College foot- ball team! The dance got off to a flying start because we had a little " meet your partner " game. Each girl had the name of a woman on her back and each boy, the name of a man. The idea of the game was to find t he man ' s name that corresponded with the wo- man ' s name you held, and in that way you found a partner -- for the first dance any- way. Everyone got nicely acquainted, and the dance rolled along smoothly. There were spot dances, novelty dances and a slight pause in the dancing while we fixed the record player. After a very good lunch and a hearty sing-song in the common room, we watched the boys drive off, as happy, I hope, as we were. Some of the girls went over to Pick- ering College to a dance tonight. 1 hear them coming in. I am glad that they had as much fun as we did. October 31. Dear Diary: It is Hallowe ' en! The gym has been transformed into a world of strange and mysterious people who walk or even crawl along according to who they are. 1 think I recognize some of the faces behind those masks. These weird looking individuals are taking part in many games and antics, al- though some of them are having difficulty getting around. I have never seen a red- headed walking clothes-line post before! Strange things are happening! The main event -- the prizes, of course! They are: Margaret Cole for full of " facts " Dragnet. - 23 - DIARY - Continued Beryl Irwin tor a very pretty " Little Bo-Peep " . Sue Lecky, MoUie Millar and Lynn Windrim for a very original two fishermen and a worm. Janet Faber, Judy Sievert and Melodie Munro for two poles and a washer woman - not new but very good. Refreshments ended the evening, and Hallowe ' en was over for another year. November 6. Dear Diary: This has been quite an evening! The Holl y Hop has been a huge success. Oh yes, there were a few embarrassing moments; one was meeting your blind date in the re- ception room. All you could think of to say was, " Hi " - All that rehearsing for nothing! After the trials of tribulations of the reception line and " Miss Carter, may I pre- sent " , the dancing got underway, and the time soon sped by as you whirled and danced in every way possible. About 11:30, the drums rolled and Jess announced the crowning of the Queen -- Carol Ann Fee, very lovely in a sparkling white dress, a perfect Queen! A little later, a fabulous lunch of sandwiches, pickles, cake, cookies, ice cream - everything in other words - was served. The last dance was over and it was time to shake hands with your " friend " . Everyone is settling down to bed now -- I guess that I had better do the same. Beginning of November. A TRIBUTE TO A PAIR OF SHOES Maybe a few words of explanation would be suitable here. -- Today was a very sad day in the history of Miss Bernadine Wilkin ' s shoes . , , they wore outj They went to their last rest through the window of Lower Frances ' washroom after a very stir- ring ceremony attended by all the seniors decked in their mourning clothes. This poem was written in memory of those shoes. Today we are all gathered In sadness, for we know, After many years of service, Bernie ' s shoes just have to go. All who know our Bernie Know she always had a goal - To wear those blessed shoes until Her socks showed through the sole. For years and years, they ' ve served her; Through rain and shine they went. Only she who wore them Know how much they really meant. So now, dear friends and " roomies " , This is our day of sorrow; Let ' s all chip in with Bernie, To buy another pair tomorrow. November 20. Dear Diary: Well, I have some of my Christmas shopping done now. This afternoon the S.C.M. Bazaar was held and it was a good opportunity to get some presents purchased. After a welcoming speech by Sue Eckel, our S.C.M. President, Marilyn Reader, the S.C.M. President of last year, cut the white ribbon to officially open the Bazaar, and everyone rushed in to examine and to buy the articles. It was not long before everything was sold. The home-made baking was espe- cially tempting. I had some; it was very good, but not for the waistline. November 29. Dear Diary: Oh, my aching brain! The exams started today! I wonder how we are going to last through this week of brain beating. They could be worse (?) 1 suppose, and I know that we will all live through them, but somehow that is not the general opinion. Enough of this back to work! - 24 - NATIVITY SCENE SENIORS DINNER - 25 - DIARY - Continued December 4, afternoon. Dear Diary: Wonderful news! The exams ended yesterday and I am still alive along with everyone else. To lop that, we could sleep in this morning, until noon jf we wanted to. What a life! Our exam results? -- time will tell. For the moment, let us relax. December 4, evening. Dear Diary: The Canadian Concert Association of Whitby presented here, tonight, their first concert, featuring Mary Syme, pianist, and Catherine Howard, mezzo-soprano. There were many beautiful selections among which were Handel ' s " Art Thou Troubled " and Debussy ' s " Brouillards " . But for O.L.C., the most interesting piece was the premiere performance of " Little Rhap- sody " by Helen Durant. You see, Helen Durant had gone to school here for ten years and was sitting in the audience tonight. It was a well-spent evening. December 17. Dear Diary: Turkey, candlelight and carol singing -- they were all part of the beautiful Christmas festival that took place tonight. The dining room was transformed into what certainly could have been the Royal York as the candlelighters went around to each table lighting the candles. The girls looked very lovely in their formals as they sat and talked, and waited for the turkey. Besides the Candlelighting Procession, there was the Boar ' s Head Procession -- something that added an extra bit of Christ- mas spirit to the whole celebration. Last but not least --the carol singing. There is no song as beautiful as a Christmas carol. " I Wish You a Merry Christmas " was very gay, even if we could not stamp our feet for the " figgy pudding " ; besides, we had our " figgy pudding " , anyway. After the dinner, a very stirring pa- geant took place on the Lower Main stairs -- The Nativity Scene -- with the Choir sing- ing in the background, and Janet Millin- champ reading the Scripture was a perfect ending to a perfect evening. January 8. Dear Diary: 1 feel as though I have just returned from a tour of Europe! We just saw Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Toll ' s 3-D pictures of their summer trip, and they were wonderful. We visited everywhere from Trafalgar Square to the peak of Mount Etna, travelling all the way via Volkswagen — a very in- teresting way to travel. I was sorry, when the lights came on, to find myself back in Whitby. I hope that we can go on another such journey very soon. January 15. Dear Diary: We had a special treat tonight in the person of Mr. Gordon Hallett, who is a bril- liant pianist. He certainly kept us engrossed in music, especially by his finale " Funerailles " . Enjoyed too, because of its familiarity, was his encore --a Chopin Waltz. February 12. Dear Diary: Tonight we visited the land of China as speech and drama students presented " Lady Precious Stream " . All the girls handled their parts very well; Margaret Bird, as " Precious Stream " , and Anne Robertson, as her lively sister " Silver Stream " , were especially good, February 19, Dear Diary: Our last fling before the exams has been flung! The Pickering Dance was a huge suc- cess. The record player did not break and the P.A. System did not let us down. It is - 26 - Continued much more fun dancing when one can hear the music. Everyone said that it was the nicest P.C. Dance ever, but isn ' t every dance al- ways the nicest one ever? Hmm--I wonder if anyone has ideas about dates for the coming formal now?? Well, I must go to bed so that I can study tomorrow. Who invented exams! ! March 12. Dear Diary: Has everyone been inspired to be a singer after tonight ' s concert? I hear lots of humming and warbling(?) as I write this! Elizabeth Benson Guy and Jan Simons must have done something to the girls. Maybe it was Mr, Simon ' s rendition of Gershwin ' s " I Got Plenty of Nuthin " and Miss Guy ' s beau- tiful " Allelulia ' by Mozart that did it. I will give up my budding " career " for a good sleep right now, March 19. Dear Diary: Soft lights, an orchestra playing the swish of filmy formals and an imaginary moon shining down on " Spring in the Park " . In case you are wondering what I am talking about ... it is the annual O.L.C. At Home Dance put on by the Athletic Association. It is strange how long we look forward to dances like this one, and how soon they are over. This one fulfilled every anticipa- tion. Well, it has been quite a night -- I am too excited to sleep . . . hmm , , . Miss Carter changed my mind. March 25. Dear Diary: Tonight was very appropriately term- ed " An Evening of Music " as the members of the Okticlos displayed their musical talents before us. We had special guests too, Marilyn Reader, Elaine Miller and Margaret Cameron, graduates of last year, who are studying this year at the Toronto Conserva- tory, sang and played for us. They really added something lovely to the concert. Also, making its first appearance on an Okticlos program, was the Choir which sang very beautifully. All in all, it was a thrilling evening. Everyone was good. It was so nice to watch your " roomie " or friend perform so well. I heard someone say it was one of the nicest concerts ever. I cannot say because it was my first one, but I know I will not forget it for a long time. April 29. Dear Diary: A night to remember always! The night of the Senior Dinner! The spirit and feeling expressed in all of the wonderful speeches is more than I can put into words. Miss Carter summed it up in a very clever poem that went like this: T ' s for the Teachers, so clever and bright, And also for Tuck that you guzzle at night. R ' s for the Reading and Writing you learn And ' rithmetic also must have its turn. A ' s for Athletics, of games quite a few. F is for French, vous en savez tout. A ' s for the Algebra Miss Hardie instructs, L ' s for the Latin with its hies, haecs and hoes, G ' s for Geography and History too, A ' s for all good that is coming to you. R ' s for the Rules we all keep with care And also for Rowcliffe, whose work is so fair. C ' s for the Cottage we all love to visit For the very great kindness we always find in it. A ' s for the Activity at the sound of the bell. S for the Staff who help us so well T is for Temple and Typing and Trig. L ' s for the Ladies you ' ll be when you ' re big. E ' s for us Elders who wish you the best. Both now and hereafter in every test. After the dinner and the autographs (we felt like celebrities the Seniors went THE MAY QUEEN - 28 - Continued out for their traditional downtown jaunt. Then about eleven o ' clock they returned, singing the school song as they came through the gates. Was there anyone with- out a lump in her throat? It won ' t be long now until we sing " Dear Old Trafalgar " for the last time. Graduation approaches! ' Night Diary. " AFTER FOUR " The familiar gong of the 4:05 P.M. bell heralds " the end of the beginning " and " the beginning of the end " . It is the end of the beginning of the day -- the school day of reading, writing and ' rithmetic, and the beginning of the end of the day -- the hours of carefree, fun-filled " after-four " activi- ties. Monday - Under the watchful supervision of our physical education teacher, Mr . Andrew, a group of twelve girls invade the swimming pool to go through the actions of making the " dog-paddle " appear graceful without drowning themselves. This water-ballet is commonly referred to as " ornamental swim- ming " . Perfect synchronization of move- ment in groups of two or more to the rhythm of music, is the final compensation for hours of water-logged practice. As an excitingly new activity, ornamental swim- ming has been received with great en- thusiasm among those interested in the art of graceful movement in the water. For those who prefer solid, dry land, the German Club plays an important role in the cultural life of the school. " Die jungen Deutschen " learn a little of the construction of the language and an appreciation of its beauty as opposed to preparation for exami- nations. Mrs. Grosart hurls out " ach ' s " |in abundance as she leads this Moderns ' C uh to bigger and better " Fraulein " . Tuesday - Bruised knee-bones, tail-bones and stiff joints is the principal remuneration for the time spent skating at the Whitby arena. All ages, sizes and shapes don skates, and. to the lilting music of " Skater ' s Waltz " , glide on to the smooth surface. The wobbly -kneed beginners, . who cautiously place one unsteady foot beside the other, hold their breath, and then push off, usually land in a heap a few feet away, while the more graceful " professionals " manage a few intricate jumps, spins and dance-steps be- fore their inevitable " kerplunk " ! At the end of an hour and a half, one and all arrive home rosy-cheeked, tired and sore, but happy. For the less energetic, shopping pri- vileges are granted. A brisk walk into town supplies bubble-bath or tooth-paste and healthy, out-of-door exercise. Wednesday - Will Lady Precious Stream fol- low her plans to marry the gardener, Hsieh Ping Kuei? Come to the assembly hall next Wednesday at 4:15 p.m. when Mrs. Aymong will direct the 13th in the series of re- hearsals for " Lady Precious Stream by S. J. Hsiung " . Play practice, and all that it en- tails, is an ideal outlet for future dramatists who have " the gift of the gab " (characteris- tic of females in general) and the yen to be Clark Gable ' s or Tony Curtis ' leading lady. Last call for Chinese pyjamas! ! ! Thursday- Ready? --one--two--three--and-- pas-de-burre--plie--coupe--pas-de-burre- - grand jete--body movement- -arms out- toes pointed . Yes, here are O.L.C. ' s prima ballerinas on their way to grace, rhythm, and co-ordination. Under the pro- fessional direction of Miss Gweneth Lloyd, one of the founders of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company, weekly classes of elemen- taries and of secondary schoolgirls, change fat to tnuscle, and awkwardness to graceful- ness as they go through the complicated routines of basic ballet. We are looking forward, with great anticipation, to the pre- sentation of a short ballet sequence on May Day. For those seniors whose rather limited French vocabulary excludes them from the knowledge that " grands jetes " and " pas-de burres " lead to slenderness and grace, shop- ping permissions are granted. With the grace and size of elephants, they amble in to town, in blissful ignorance, until the din- ner bell calls them in to food and more fat. - 30 - Continued Friday - " Les Jeunes Francaises " , under the guidance of our petite language teacher, Mrs. Grosart, bring the week to an end with the romantic and intriguing French language in their Moderns ' Club. French conversa- tion, vocabulary games and quiz games keep these French " castors ardents " (pardon the French slang) busy. Who knows? -- one of them may win " beaucoup d ' argent " doing French crossword puzzles, or win an expense-free trip to the country they are learning so much about. Just think of all the sauve, gallant, single " monsieurs " in Paris, France. WHY DO YOU FOLLOW ME? Why do you follow me? Have you no home? Child of the city streets. Are you alone? Ragged and dirty, A smudge on your brow. Why do you follow me? I can ' t wait now. Patricia Earle. HURRICANE All was quiet-- The sand, the sea, the sky-- All in expectation To see another day go by. But wait! A little breeze wafts by, Then becomes greater! stronger! As the minutes fly. And does not cease! Then whistles, rumbles, thunders, roars, And darkness darkens The darkness. The roar, the sand, the sea All mixed to noisy anarchy. All hurl, and thunder, break and screech. All twist and sway Till all are mixed. Then comes the calm. And all is quiet-- The sands, the sea, the sky -- All in expectation To see another day go by. Suzanne Eckel NIGHT The daylight beats a soft retreat From country lane, from city street. And lights from houses soon will peep. And lovers in the park will meet. The stars are twinkling in the sky; The lady moon goes sailing by, And birds no more this night will fly, For in their feathered nests they lie. In quiet slumber goes the night. No cats do howl, nor dogs do fight. For God looks on with all His might That we, in peace, might sleep this night. Elaine Westheuser The above poems took first, second, and third places in a Literary Contest held dur- ing the month of January. The entries were judged by six members of the Faculty and two students. Elsewhere in this selection there appear those entries which received honourable mention. M, Cole - 31 - FOR THE ELEMENTARIES Tommy Beaver was all by himself, hidden away in a dark corner so nobody would see the little tears that, squeezed out of his eyes and rolled down his cheeks to land on Miss Buttercup ' s golden hair. He was very sad, because all his brothers and sisters laughed at him. You see, Tommy Beaver had no tail. Now can you just imagine how he felt? He had tried everything to make one grow. He had looked up at Mr. Moon and whistled the weird chant Ma Hoot Owl had taught him; he had put one of his favourite desserts, a nice new piece of bark, in the wishing well and turned around three times with his eyes shut and whispered, " Please give me a tail " . Oh he had tried everything, but he still didn ' t have a tail -- not even the littlest sign of a tail. Suddenly Tommy heard a tiny tinkly voice saying, " Please, Tommy, don ' t cry. You are making my hair go straight. " Tommy looked down in the direction of the voice, and, sure enough, poor Miss Buttercup ' s golden curls were going all droopy and straight. " What is the matter, Tommy? " she asked. Slowly and tearfully Tommy told her, and much to his surprise she laughed! Can you imagine? She laughed! Tommy was a little bit peeved at this. Surely anybody so pretty wouldn ' t laugh at him. " Tommy, " she said, " if you ' ll come to see me just as Mr. Moon winks at you over Farmer Gray ' s fence, I ' ll get you a tail. " Now Tommy was a little doubtful, because, after all, he had had so many disap- pointments, he just didn ' t think he could bear to have another. But that night he winked back at Mr. Moon and silently slipped out to see Miss Buttercup. What was this? Miss Buttercup was sitting at the feet of-=of — well it looked like a fairy queen and look--Oh! Tommy was just breathless because there were hundreds of little men dressed in green velvet suits with little green hats to match. They were singing a song like this: Tommy Beaver has no tail. But we will never ever fail With our own Queen ' s good command To bring him the best tail in the land. Just then the Queen saw him and beckoned for him to come to her side. He loved her at once -- this pretty little maid in shimmering white with her gauzy wings and little wand. She touched him lightly with her wand, t wirled him lightly ' round, give him a light kiss, and, sure enough, Tommy got his tail. TRIOLET Apple trees reveal their souls In the spring The winter fires dim their coals Apple trees reveal their souls Tiny blossoms fill the bowls Their scent becomes a clinging thing Apple trees reveal their souls In the spring. Frances Swan - 32 - HOW TO BUILD A PIT PAN Finally the day came for the poor fincera. His rice was all ready, after many hard months of work, to take to the market. But how? His oxen team had died in the terrible plague. Yes, there was one way and now Juan was grateful that he had made his little farm near the Principoca River. For this beautiful river flowed right to the town where he had planned to sell his rice. But ah! he had no boat. Yet he had one last hope, for Juan knew the dense jungle had many a tree which could be made into a good durable boat. The boat would be small, but yet big enough to carry his family and rice to town. The noon heat was terrible, but he had no time to waste. Juan went to his wife and told her of his last hope. Marie was so glad that it did not take her long to return with the axe, machette, and a lunch. As he left to follow the river in search of a suitable tree for his boat, Juan heard his wife and children wishing him good luck. Juan had not walked far when he came across a large tree. He was hungry, but Juan wasted no time in eating. He started to cut and as he worked he forgot his hunger in joy. Crack! It fell right on the river bank. It was now about three o ' clock; so, Juan slopped to eat his tortias, rice, and beans. They were cold, but good. After resting for a while, Juan started to cut the branches off the fallen tree, keeping two of the larger ones for paddles. After this was done, he chipped off the bark. He had only two tools - an axe and a ma- chette, which is a long, bladed, knife-like tool. He used the axe to make most of his boat. Juan was a good worker and it didn ' t take long till all the bark was off. There was only one thing left to do, but that was the longest and hardest job of all. Juan didn ' t mind, for he thought only of the money his rice would bring. His last job was to hollow the log. Juan started to work chipping piece by piece. He was so busy he hardly realized how late and dark it was. Finally, when he could hardly see any more, Juan stopped for the night. Building a fire with the chippings, to keep the animals away, Juan again looked in his lunch bag. This time he ate his tortia, rice and beans warm with a good hot cup of coffee. Juan was so tired, it did not take him long to fall asleep. when he woke up, the sun was just rising. He ate some more food, and started to work. Juan worked steadily, and by noon he was almost through. He stopped only a short while to eat and quench his thirst. Then, working hard and quickly, Juan chipped and hollowed the big tree piece by piece. About three o ' clock he stopped. At last his boat was finished. But not all his work was done, for he yet had to make his paddles. Taking two branches he had set aside, Juan started whittling them to shape with his machette. This was not hard nor did it take long. About five, according to Juan ' s guess by the sun, he heaved a sigh to be finished at last. Now to launch his new boat. He shoved and shoved till finally splash! It landed in the water; picking up his tools, Juan jumped in his boat and headed for home. He was tired and hungry, but didn ' t mind because he was filled with the joy of being able to sell his rice. Carol McGowan - 33 - A WINDOW BLIND THE WIND ' S TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS I see a ruby and then some wine As a ray of light reflects a line Of deepest red and oh, so true. Oh, look! oh, look! there ' s one in blue, A piece of sky upon the wall! Oh, catch it quick, unless it fall. And blend to hide that brilliant yellow - A topaz in the glass is mellow. But can you see that moss green stone Standing by itself alone? It scampers when you move the blind To mix in the grey-matter of your mind. Oh dear! oh dear! the wall is clear. I moved the blind - lost my cheer. Valerie Haines The wind went whining down the lane. Across the field, and through a pane, He broke a pretty yellow vase. And whipped around a bright red chaise. Up winding stairs, and through a door. Into a room, across the floor. Around the room a few times more. Past the window, out the door. On his way across the miles, Through the fence, across the stiles. Over dirty snow he riles. His anger spending all the while. Jane Lillico -- Elaine Westhauser VISIT TO GENERAL MOTORS Wednesday, January 19, was a big day for the Economics ' Class and the Grade Ten typing students. What caused the commotion? - A trip through General Motors ' new South Plant. We were given pass cards to sign first. These were returned to a policeman on our way out. Glasses were passed out among us for protection from the sparks of the spot- welding machines. Then we were ready to proceed on our four-mile walk around the forty -seven acres under roof! The venture took us through the Body Assembly Shop first. Here, we saw the foundation of the car put together. The base coat of paint was then administered in the Body Paint Shop above the Assembly Plant. The car body was brought down again and the body assembly finished off. It went upstairs once more for the final series of spray paint- ings. Some of this work was very dangerous. The men had to wear gas-masks to protect them from the fatal fumes of the paint. From the paint shop, the car was shipped, via the Body Bridge, to the Final Assembly Plant. Here, the body was dropped on the chassis. The fenders, seats and final equipment were then properly placed. When these things were in order, the car was driven onto the " Roll Test " at a very high rate of speed. Another thorough inspection followed, and if all were well, the car was filled with gaso- line and driven off the assembly line, ready for delivery. This is a very brief account Williams. We ' re warning you -■ plant, especially General Motors ' , was one of the most educational a too. DOCKS The docks formed a border. Around the shore. Like an embroidered design On a soft blue pillow case. Diane Millar of our three-hour visit under the guidance of Mr. Herb don ' t ever turn down a visit through any automotive We know we benefitted by this wonderful outing; it nd interesting tours of the year --a good deal of fun. Christine Caldwell TRAFFIC SIGNALS Listen to the whistle Of the traffic cop. The horns honking In the cars. Green, orange and red Lights flashing off and on, And all that movement stops. Jo-Anne Hamilton - 34 - HURRICANE! Like an angry lion the storm pounces upon earth. The cold, cruel wind heartlessly rips and freezes all within its reach. The tall trees sway and creak protesting violently, but the wind continues to blow, fiercely, ruthlessly. Sweeping across the country-side it takes all in its strong arms and hurls it down as would a spoiled child. The sound of the sea rises to a roar. Once calm it has changed in an instant from gently rolling swells to an insane jumble of tall waves which reach gigantic height, then throw the mselves down to crash against the sturdy, jagged rocks, and roll moaning back to sea to recover from their blows. Foaming like mad dogs, they toss and pitch until the very bottom of the sea is agitated, and objects float on the waves and ride to the shore. Dark clouds in the sky scream with rage, and grow increasingly fierce as they shoot forks of lightning at the earth. The sky is cracked like broken china. Rain pours down, and, driven by the wind, swells little streams to rivers, and rivers become raging torrents of destruction and foaming anger. All the night the storm rages, until, its anger spent, it slowly creeps away to leave in dawn ' s light a scene of wet destruction. TRIOLETS Margaret Bird.

FROM CLARENCE WHO IS JUST SEVEN Dear Mother: Today we caught some mice. We called them George and Liberace. They were so cute with their little white tummies, and their little buck teeth. Mommy, why didn ' t their mommy make them wear braces like I have to? Anyway, Mommy, did you know baby mice liked crackers and milk? -- cause they do. In fact our mice ate so much that their white tummies went like balloons, and do you know what? Our science teacher said they ate so much that that was why they died. I ' m not going to eat so much any more either, ' cause I don ' t want to die. Maybe I won ' t be your fat little boy any more. Well, ' bye for now. Clarence. P.S. Mommy, please don ' t be mad, but we had to bury the mice in your cake tin. A GRADUATE ' S MEMORIES I loved it well, dear O.L.C, With its tradition and its song, It stood amid the bending trees, A f ortress, safe and strong. It brings to mind the happy times I spent there in my Senior year. The morning walks, the chapel chimes. The memory is both glad and dear. I ' ve never forgotten the opening day. So much confusion, so much to say, Meeting new friends and ones from the past, Friendships that falter, and friendships that last, I remember with pleasure the day of all days. Diplomas in hand, we wended our ways, Our thoughts towards our goals in the future ahead. Still knowing these memories would never be dead. -- Carolyn Siegner, - 36 - El Ano de 1954-1955 Este ano ha pasado rapidamente y tenemos muchas memorias agradables. El dia en lo cual regresamos fue lleno de sorpresas. Saludamos a nuestras anigas y a las muchas nuevas estudiantes que iban a ser nuestras amigas. Ese primer dTa abrimos los baules, compramos libros y arreglamos nuestros cuartos. En las clases no empezamos a trabajar en seguida. Charlamos con las maestras y hablamos de los cursos. Vino el dia muy canadiense llamado " Initiation Day " . Las nuevas estudiantes tuvieron que hacer mucnas cosas locas y todo el mundo se divirtio mucho. Esa misma noche las muchachas de los anbs anteriores presentaron actos chistosos. Mas tarde, las iniciadas presentaron sus actos para el resto del colegio. El 31 de octubre celebramos " Hallowe ' en " . Todas las mesas del comedor estuvieron adornadas con candelas, esqueletos, brujas, y calabazas. No habfa luz electrica porque se illuminaba el comedor con candelas. El 6 de noviembre era una fecha importante. Nuestro baile tradiclonal " The Holly Hop " tuvo lugar por la tarde y era un gran exito. Sigio el bazar de la S. C. M. Este tambien fue un buen exito, y todas las muchachas y las maestras colaboraron. El 17 de diciembre todas estaban listas para descansarse. Despues de una buena coraida, salio todo el mundo. El 19 de marzo tuvimos el otro baile de ano, " The A. A. Formal " y el 3 de junio esperamos asistir al baile final, este de " Graduation " . Acabadas las vacaciones de la Pasqua, comenzaron los ejercicios del fin del ano. Primero vino el " Senior Dinner " . Siguieron las elecciones de la " May Queen " y de sus consejeras. El 18 de mayo tuvo lugar la fiesta importante y bonito de " May Day " . Pasaron todos los eventos de este dia con exactitud. Entonces llego el dia que habiamos esperado todo el ano. El dia de " Graduation " . " iComo las muchachas del Quinto Ano parecfan bellas en sus vestidos blancos y llevando las rosas rojas! Despues que los ejercicios de " Graduation " terminaron, nos separamos para las vacaciones. Adios, y que pasen muy felices sus vacaciones. Vayan con Dios, amigas! Un jour memorable a O.L.C. C ' est aujourd ' hui le vingt-trois avril. C ' etait hier un jour de la plus triste im- portance. Nos souris sont mortes. Ces petites souris grises aux oreilles roses; nous les avons tant aimees! Beaucoup de larmes sont tombees a cause de la mort de ces petits animaux. Ces souris qui avaient le nez qui tremblait and les yeux brillants sont venues nous faire visile dans notre chambre par un trou dans le mur. Nous les avons attrapees et les ont mises dans une boite couverte de fil metallique. Elles y jouaient avec vivacite et puis elles ont manage des biscuits que nous leur avons donnes. Elles ont mange beaucoup; peut-etre irop, car le lendemain quand la cloche nous a reveillees nous les avons vues toutes tranquilles et toutes paisibles. Nous les avons appelees doucement mais helas il n ' y avait pas le moindre mouvement. Alors nous avons compris que les petites souris ne vivaient plus. Nous leurs avons accorde des funerailles imposantes ce jour triste et memorable a O.L.C. ,. o i -- V.Haines. L ouragan Hazel Le vent criait, les arbres gemissaient et les nuages sourdes devenaient de plus en plus noirs. D ' abord je remarquai que I ' herbe remuait et alors que les feuilles tremblaient. Le vent augmentait, et maintenant les branches se balan9aient peniblement. Plus loin j ' en- tendis I ' aboiement leger d ' un chien qui ne voulait pas etre attrape dans cette chose qu ' il ne comprenait pas. Quelques moments plus tard il commen9a a pleuvoir. La pluie tomba a verse, les gouttes frappaient la terre comme des boulettes. Le son des branches qui se cassait m ' effraya. Un eclair traversa le ciel et rabattit un arbre prSs de moi. Je levai les yeux au ciel et je vis yeux petits raoineaux emportes par le vent. Plus tard, couchee dans mon lit chaud, j ' etais contente d ' etre a I ' abri de I ' ouragan Hazel et je pensais avec attendrissement aux animaux qui se trouvaient dehors cette nuit- la. -- M.

She could usually be found pounding a type- writer in the commercial room. A great deal of that typing was yearbook copy. Thanks, Chris! JOAN COLLACUTT - Joan is the sole owner of a turned-up nose.

Although she arrived late, we all came to know her and soon liked her. None of us will ever forget that beautiful black hair. How ' s English? PATRICIA LORD - Pat, from Ottawa, is always full of fun. Even chicken pox cannot stop her if there is a dance. She was an asset to the Hare House cheerleading team. SHIRLEY MOFFAT - Shirl is our only blonde. She was a regular member of the Oshawa clan. We hope she ' ll be back to join us again next year. How ' s the weight reducing coming?

DOREEN NOURSE - Doreen hails from the good old town of Picton. Some people have all the luck. Doreen managed to get snowed in on a certain week-end. NANCY RAY - Our little Ray cer- tainly has a lot of flames. Famous last words - " Any mail for me? " Miss Postcard 1955. ANN ROBERTSON - Ann was our able Class President this year.

She was a good com- petitor for the top of the class. CONNIE CLAYSON - Connie, alias the girl in the pink tights, came to us from good old Lawrence Park in Toronto. We hope to see Connie back again next year. PATSY EARLE - Pat was another one of our day students. We often wonder where Pat gets her brains. What ' s the secret, Pat? JANET ELLIS - Jan was the vice-president of our class this year. She spent her long week-ends skiing in the Laureniians and keeping Gord company when Gijle wasn ' t around. SUE FERGUSON t Fergy made the trip to her home in Ottawa every long week-end. She was an eager participant in her gym classes and spent most of her free time giggling. ANN HARDY - Ann came to us from Toronto. Her favourite pastime was counting the days until the long week-ends. This was her second year at O.L.C. LOUISE JORDAN - Lou had quite a time de- bating where she would spend her long week-ends, Sudbury or Orillia. If you need your hair cut, go to Lou ' s on Upper Fran. DIANE GOODMAN - Diane tramped to school every day from Whitby. Cakes are her specialty; if you want a good one, go to Goodman. JANE LILLICO - Janie spends her holidays in Toronto and her summers in Muskoka. She has hopes of being a nurse, but will probably end up being a deaconess. - Barb hails from Toronto, their new Oldsmobile and - Sue was oitr hometown She likes swimming and BARBARA MILLAR Her favourite topics are: her baby brother. SUSAN MILLARD girl from Perth, Ontario, has an avid interest in piano. PAT MUMFORD - If you want to know anv- thing about nickel mining, ask Pat Mumford, who comes from Creighton Mines. Pat was always ready for fun, especially when it came to apple -pieing beds. JANE YANOVER - Janie, alias Boobala, was one of our brightest faces on Upper Fran, especially in the " wee hours " in the morning. Her favourite expression is, " Aw, do I have to get up? " JANE SAUNDERS - Janie makes her home in Colombia, S.A., but is a " naturalized " Canadian. She was one of the brainy girls who studied in their rooms. MELODIE MUNRO - Mel (no relation to Marilyn) makes ruts in the roads going from To- ronto to Brockville. She contaminates herself if she enters any chain store other than Woolworth ' s. NORMA REINER - Norma was " Boobala ' s " cell-mate on Upper Fran. She was a major contri- bution to the scnool volleyball team. She lived for the long week-ends. Her pet speech is, " Is that right? " ELAINE WESTHEUSER - Elaine, alias Brun- hilda, could usually be found in a practice room pounding a piano; or in her room pounding the floor while trying to do the mambo. Right, Brunhilda? VIVIAN REISKIND - " Charlie " hails from Montreal, but she seems to prefer the States to food old Canada. Viv ' s favourite song is " Money urns a hole in my pocket. " Isn ' t that right, Charlie. BARBARA TALBOT - Barb ' s former school was Havergal, in her home city of Toronto. Her favourite pastime is watching the mail list. - 44 - WENDY GREER - The special talent of our lanky and vivacious brunette was the display of a double set of " dentures " -- one real, and a second to insure that the first grew in straight. For the adjustment of said bands, she kept the C.P.R. in business rush- ing back and forth between her twohomes-- O.L.C. and Gait, Ontario. Best of luck in all of your plans for the future, Wendy. SYBIL GOULSTON - another new- comer to O.L.C. from Sarnia, Ontario, who never wasted a moment, and was, therefore, tops in school work as well as in sports. Her plans for the future include being an air- line stewardess; we wish her luck on the ground and in the air. EVELYN SUNTER - From Seely ' s Bay, Ontario, our blond, blue-eyed Evelyn was as faithful in her piano -practising as in clothes-washing. The latter yielded no more than clean pyjamas, while the former developed quite a musical talent. We wish her the best of luck as a teacher of Home Economics. GEORGINA WHITE - was our cheerful Class President, coming from Pickering District. She has been at O.L.C. for two years now. She hopes to be a teacher in the future, but whatever she does, we know that she will come through with flying colours. ANN KING - the calypso dancer of the freshman class this year. Always cheer- ful and bright, she had no use for gloom. Being patriotic on behalf of Bermuda was her favourite pastime. KAY YOUNG - the semi-invisible member of our class, comes from Toronto. Her height proved advantageous when mis- chief was afoot; she was always full of fun and ready for a laugh. She would like to enter the air-force someday. DAPHNE LIDDICOAT - washed down here from her home at Niagara-on-the- Lake. For five years now she has undergone the rough trip. Her destination, she says, is nursing. Best of luck! TOBY LEE SANDERS - the gourmet of Grade IX was a new addition to O.L.C. this year. She brought humour and life, when dark spirits occasionally overcame us. She hopes to be a nurse in the future, and we wish her the best of luck in her career. ANN WELLINGTON - one of the brains of the freshmen class of 55. She has said that she would like to be a surgeon one day; it ' s a long road, but with her ability she should make it. She has been looking forward all year to the summer holiday when she returns to her home in South America. DOREEN HAYDEN - A late-comer was, nevertheless, a welcome addition to Grade IX. Her sparkling personality and willingness to always lend a hand made her one of the really well-liked girls of our class. Doreen, who wears a diamond, is not quite sure of her immediate plans, but we wish her the best of luck in whatever they may be. CAROL McGOWAN - from sunny Nicaragua in Central America, and a new- comer to O.L.C. this year, Carol was as ac- complished in sports, as in school work and piano-playing. She is looking forward to a career in nursing, in which we are confident she will succeed. BETTY WAGG - A shriek or cry of " Holy Cow " from Upper Ryerson was enough to let the school in on the secret that gay, red -headed Betty had received " mail " . From Midland, Ontario, Betty is thinking of nursing as a profession. We wish her the best of luck. CAROL ANN PARKER - A future teacher, Carol Ann, as a day girl, brought the rest of Ryerson up on the latest gossip of the outside world. To the usual Grade IX curriculum she added Art, for which she had quite a talent. We hope that some day she will be back at O.L.C. teaching the three " r ' s " . - 46 - ELEMENTARY CLASS DEBORAH BENNETT DENE GROSART NANCY RUSSELL VICKI GROSART SUSAN READ ORLENE WOJCICHOWSKY BARBARA ROBSON LINDA RUSSELL DIANE LAZARUS PAM EARLE CAROL HUNT ELIZABETH LOWES PAT LINSELL ANN KRUGER MELITA HORVATH ELAYNE BARLOW PAT FRENETTE DIANNE ROBINS - Good things come in small packages. - Happy-go-lucky. - Lively and a good sport. - As merry as the day is long. - For she ' s a jolly good fellow. - Short but sweet. - A good friend. - From a little spark may burst a mighty flame. - A barrel of fun. - Sugar and spice and everything nice. - A good friend and a good sport. - Who said, " Gentlemen prefer blondes " ? - Venezuela ' s loss and our gain. - She ' s had troubles and sorrows but she ' s cheerful and all. - she smiles and the world smiles with her. - Always a helping hand, , - Nice and new. - Lucky Farewell. DEBBIE S GROVA l« ) !i O1.D e R. U - 50 - ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION FAREWELL HOUSE Farewell House has put up a good fight in all the inter-school activities this year. We topped in Volleyball, thanks to P. Atkinson, Albornoz, S. Boegal, J. Carruthers, J, A. Pringle, C. McGowan, N. Reiner, C. Siegner, S. Goulston and D. Miller. We managed to come first on Field Day, and special mention should go to Valerie Frenette and little Diana Lazarus for coming up with the most points. There was terrific competition in our baseball games, but we did manage to come second. Our team consisted of C. Drew, V. Frenette, C. McGowan, P, Atkinson, T. L. Sanders, L. Long, A. King, S. Goulston, M. Austin, J. A. Pringle, N. Reiner and E. Albornoz. We have a chance of winning the finals in basketball which are to be played next term; the girls will do their best, anyway. We hope that Farewell House in the year 1955-1956, will have as much good sports- manship and enthusiasm as we had this year. HARE HOUSE At the time of this writing, the winners of the House Shield have not been decided, but I feel confident that the girls of Hare will continue, throughout the year to try their hardest and fight with an unconquerable spirit and fairness. Last fall, although defeated by Farewell, our girls showed tremendous spirit and en- thusiasm at the Track and Field Meet, and provided great competition for the other houses. Thanks go to all the girls who participated in the meet. In baseball. Hare House came to the top, and won the championship. Congratula- tions go to Connie Clayson, Marg Cole, Sue Eckel, Janet Faber, Ann Hardy, Daphne Liddi- coat, Jane Lillico, Sue Millard, Janet Millinchamp, Pat Riddell, Fran Swan, Ruby Smith, Judy Sievert, Jessie Trumper, Anne Wellington and Kay Young, who played their hearts out. The house basketball and badminton are not yet under way, but I know the girls will do their best both in these and the other athletic events which are to take place before June. - 51 - Congratulations go to Janet Faber, Anne Hardy, Daphne Liddicoat, Sue Millard, Janet Millinchamp, Judy Sievert, Dawn Stewart, Anne Wellington, Bette Woolfrey and Kay Young, who represented our house on the school basketball team. Whether Hare House wins or loses the shields this year, all the girls have earned the highest reward possible -- that of knowing that they did their best and at all times showed good sportsmanship. Thank you, , girls, for your co-operation, and the best of luck to all of you always. MAXWELL HOUSE This year Maxwell House fell behind somewhat but picked up quite well when the spring fever arrived. Captain Darrell provided sub-captain Caldwell with a few " Shocks " while the troop was lining up for meals. Miss Robbins and Miss Ray hold the ribbon for talking in line; hope they don ' t get it next year, too. During the first term, Miss Hamilton sometimes " over-washed " in the a.m., but she is now accustomed to her alarm and is early. Miss Ellis and Miss Yearley did a swell job as cheerleaders for the house and were superb on the school squad, also. Jane " Buck- shot " Kincaid is the gardener in our crowd. When Dr. Osborne took the choir to Gravenhurst, we were allow- ed a bit of free time to browse around the town. Beth Yearley bought the most darling little plaid puppy, but WHAT did Buckshot buy??? Radish seeds! ! At the time of writing, they hadn ' t started to grow, but when and if they do, won ' t Mr. Carroll be pleased! ! We were very sorry to lose one of the best members of the troop to Oakville High this year, namely Andy MacMillan. We hope Maxwell has her back to root for the house next year. A great deal of credit should go to one of the youngest members of our troop, Linda Lazarus, for her terrific house spirit. There are so many more who really should be mentioned, but it wouldn ' t be fair to fill the yearbook with Maxwell ' s terrific troop. We hope that whoever takes over our job will have more (and more each year) house spirit to work with. Meantime, be good, gang, and best of luck to you always. FIELD DAY WINNERS - 52 - FIELD DAY Because of rain on Saturday, October 2nd, our annual field day was postponed to the following Monday and Tuesday after- noons after 4:00 p.m. When an event was taking place, groups of girls would be expectantly watch- ing and cheering, or, maybe, even hoping for a miracle of some kind to occur. In some cases, the suspense seemed almost unbear- able, but, at the end, all seemed satisfied that the winner had put her utmost effort into winning. The winner was then reward- ed with five house points for her house, while the runners-up got three, two or one house point, determined by their standing as 2nd, or 3rd in the race. Besides house points, these winners also received ribbons, red for first place, blue for second place, and yellow for third place. It should also be mentioned that these ribbons were proudly worn by the girls for two and three days after the field day. The climax of our field day came with the relay race in which Pat Atkinson, Valerie Frenette, Ann King and Elsa Albor- noz ran for Farewell House; Pat Lord, Judy Sievert, Ruby Smith and Janet Millinchamp ran for Hare House, and Elaine Westheuser, Betty Wagg, Jane Kincaid and Ann Kruger ran for Maxwell House. It should be said that without the tea- chers ' participation, the track meet would never have been a success. We are very grateful to the faculty for their co-operation and help in judging and keeping track of the winners in the various events. Special thanks go to Mrs. Andrew, our Physical Training Instructress and to Bernadine Wil- kin, our Athletic Association President, who organized and planned the field day. Much to the exhausted crowd ' s de- light, hot dogs and pop were available (for a price, of course), after the afternoon ' s events. This was certainly a treat which was well appreciated. As at all parties and good times, there was the cleaning up afterwards. No one was particularly enthusiastic about this part of the field day, but some, willingly or other- wise, stayed behind to help. The final results of the field day are as follows: Senior Division Intermediate Div. Winner - Valerie Frenette Pat Atkinson Runner-up - Ruby Smith Pat Lord Junior Division Juvenile Division Winner - Betty Wagg Diane Lazarus Runner-up - Ann Kruger Linda Russell Participation Points: Farewell House - 188 Hare House - 211 Maxwell House - 141 Total House Points: Winner - Farewell House - 369 Second -Hare House -330 Third -Maxwell House - 236 SOFTBALL The Softball season, for us, was short this year. We played only three games, those being the Inter-House Games at the close of October and the beginning of November. On the whole, there was not much practising done for softball, mainly because of the cold weather coming on. As it was, the players showed up in coats, blazers and kerchiefs, removing them only when it was absolutely necessary. In the first game of the series. Fare- well defeated Maxwell by a score of 33 to 6. The teams put up a good fight for the victory, and although Farewell won it, all players enjoyed themselves. In the following game, between Hare and Maxwell, the score was 26 to 5 for Hare. Again, the game was enjoyed not so much for the score, but for the sport. In our last game. Farewell against Hare, Hare took the lead of 10 to 3. Both teams played well and fought hard to the very end. This last victory for Hare also won for them the Inter-House softball title. VOLLEYBALL Our volleyball season this year was short-lived. We had our Inter-House games, but the only outside school we played was Pickering High School. The following players made up the Junior and Senior teams: JR. AND SR. VOLLEYBALL - 54 - Senior Pat Atkinson Jane Carruthers Joan Collacutt Janet Faber Valerie Frenette Jane K incaid Diane Millar Jane-Ann Pringle Judy Sievert Betty Woolfrey Junior Elsa Albornoz Jane Bastedo sybil Goulston Ann Hardy Daphne Liddicoat Carol McGowan sue Millard Norma Reiner Betty Wagg Ann Wellington Kay Young On Novenaber 23rd, the games were played off at O.L.C. During the senior game, for some odd reason, our team got the giggles. After this slight interruption, the game continued smoothly. Playing oa our front line was 6 ' Pat Atkinson who was opposed by a fairly tall Pickering player. They seemed to be having a competition between themselves on who could spike the ball the most. A few times though, they both tried at once and the result was a grand slam. On our junior team we had Elsa, Daphne and Elaine playing an exceptionally good game. Pickering had two complete junior teams which made it all the harder for O.L.C. But, with a fair amount of prac- tice and good teamwork, O.L.C. was able to meet Pickering ' s challenge and win by the score of 46-22 for the seniors, and 35-14 for the juniors. VOLLEYBALL INTER-HOUSE GAMES On the day set for the Inter-House games, school stopped at 3:00 p.m. and all three volleyball games were played off in that one afternoon. There was quite a large turnout of spectators. The faculty had a good view from the balcony above the gymnasium, while the students cheered from the sidelines. Throughout the games there was much excitement and noise going on while each house was being cheered on by its members. The following players made up the teams for each of the houses: Jane Carruthers Valerie Frenette Sybil Goulston Carol McGowan Diane Millar Jane-Ann Pringle Norma Reiner Carolyn Siegner Farewell House Elsa Albornoz Pat Atkinson Sandra Boegel Hare House Phyllis Cullen Sue Eckel Janet Faber Ann Hardy Daphne Liddicoat Jane Lillico Pat Lord Sue Millard Pat Riddell Ann Robertson Judy Sievert Betty Woolfrey Kay Young Maxwell House Jackie Darrell Janet Ellis Frances Eve Heather Gordon Jo-Ann Hamilton Louise Jorden Jane Kincaid Ann Kruger Ruth Large Pat Mumford Betty Wagg Elaine Westheuser Farewell and Maxwell played off the first game. It was a quick game with both teams doing their best, but it ended up in a victory for Farewell with the score of 22-2. The next game took place between Hare and Maxwell. Hare won by the score of 22-10. Farewell and Hare then played off the third game for the championship. Farewell won with the score of 22-9. This game concluded the afternoon series of volleyball, and made Farewell House the winner, with Hare House runner-up for the Inter House Volleyball. 1954-55. Isn ' t it a coincidence that the winning team in each game always managed to get the top score of 22? We should like to con- gratulate all three Houses for their wonder- ful display of house spirit and sportsmanship. BASKETBALL The basketball teams would like to thank Mrs. Andrew for her coaching and fine management. Thanks, too, for the moral support from our cheerleaders, Sue Eckel, Janet Ellis, Karen Munro and Beth Yearley. Members of the SENIOR TEAM were: forwards - Pat Atkinson, Sandra Boegel; Phyl Cullen, Joan Collacutt, Valerie Frenette, Carol Drew and Nancy Ray; guards - Bette Woolfrey, Janet Millinchamp, Jane Kincaid, Chris Caldwell, Jane Carruthers, Doreen Kerr and Dawn Stewart. - 55 - Members of the JUNIOR TEAM were: forwards - Elaine Westheuser, Daphne Liddi- coat, Kay Young, Betty Wagg, Judy Sievert, Barbara Miller; guards - Elsa Albornoz, Janet Faber, Carol McGowan, Louise Jorden, Sue Millard, Ann Hardy and Sybil Goulston. O.L.C. VERSUS PICKERING Our basketball season opened by play- ing Pickering High School on January 26th, at O.L.C. In the Junior game, O.L.C. got off to a bad start and was behind until the last quarter when Kay Young managed to make a basket. Because three Pickering players failed to report to the scorekeepers before substituting, O.L.C. was allowed three free shots, which unfortunately were unsuccess- ful. During the last quarter, our team really picked up, and Daphne climaxed the game by a basket that lied the score 26-26, The Senior Team played a very good game. In the first quarter Phyllis made a beautiful basket from the two thirds line. The score was at a five all tie, when our star pliyer, Pat, made a basket on a free throw, bringing O.L.C. into the lead. Dur- ing the third quarter Joan and Phyllis made baskets. The game went on with much ex- citement, and the final score was 23-9 for O.L.C. O.L.C. VERSUS WHITBY On February 2nd, O.L.C. and Whitby met at Whitby High School to play off the next game of the series. For the Juniors, the game was very unfortunate. To start with, their team was minus a few players because of illness. In this game the Juniors suffered their greatest defeat, but it didn ' t stop them from trying throughout the game. The entire game was quite rough, and there was a number of vio- lations and fouls. The Juniors seemed to find it hard to play on the large court, and consequently many passes were intercepted. The team was unable to coordinate until the last when O.L.C. picked up, but the re- covery was neither soon enough nor strong enough. Daphne, Kay and Betty made the baskets for O.L.C. The final score was 52-11 for Whitby. As is characteristic of most of the senior games, Pat started off making the first baskets. Before the first quarter was over, she had made seven baskets for O.L.C. while Whitby had none. During the second quarter Valerie and Joan each made a splendid shot from the side of the court which, in both cases, did not even touch the rim. Jane Kincaid did some exceptionally good guarding, but nevertheless Whitby picked up steam, and made a good recovery. It must have been encouraging for Pat to have O.L.C. cheer her on with " Reach, Streak " , for when they did, she promptly made a basket. The final score was 59-31 for O.L.C. O.L.C. VERSUS HAVERGAL For these games O.L.C. had to travel to Toronto. We were entertained both going and returning by Jane Carruthers who played many catchy tunes on her ukelele. The games took place on the morn- ing of February 12th. Because of trans- portation accommodations our Senior Team was limited to nine players, and the •Junior Team to eight. The cheerleaders were also unable to come. At these games a new system was in- troduced. The Juniors started off by playing their first half of the game; the Seniors then played their first half. The Juniors played their last half, and then the Seniors followed by doing likewise. This alternat- ing system gave all the teams a much needed rest between halves. From the very start the Juniors played with difficulty. They found it hard to make their passes connect, and the stand-out, moveable baskets made it hard for them to score. Havergal combined scoring with very good teamwork in their passing. At quarter time they were well ahead of O.L.C. With the score of 34-4, Havergal added another Junior game to their undefeated re- cord. - 56 - The senior game was very exciting because there was much competition. Pat again made the first basket for O.L.C. In the second quarter Bette made some flying passes to Pat who was under the basket and able to score. This system worked until a few baskets later, when the Havergal guards caught on to it. The final score totalled up to 24-16 for O.L.C. It was interesting to note that in the course of this game Pat made all but three of the baskets for O.L.C. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves after as well as during the games at Havergal and we are very grateful for their invitation and wonderful hospitality. O. L. C. VERSUS PICKERING On March 8th, O.L.C. and Pickering met again for a return game which was played in Pickering ' s spacious auditorium and gymnasium. Throughout this game, the Junior Team showed an improvement in their teamwork, even if they didn ' t win. It might also be mentioned that two of Pickering ' s senior players played in the Junior game during the last quarter. The final score was 28-16 for P.H.S. The senior game opened with a bas- ket made by Pat, and one by Pickering, made on a foul, right after it. Joan made a lovely attempt from the free throw line. The ball circled the rim twice, and then to our disappointment it fell off. Throughout the entire game the guards did extremely well. Bette and Janet were particularly good in their routine of getting the ball to the forward line. The game resulted in another victory for the Senior Team with the score of 24-11. After the games the players were all treated to doughnuts and milk. Pickering ' s hospitality was very much appreciated by O.L.C, game concluded our series of basketball games with other schools. As in the preced- ing game, we used the alternating system. Halfway through the first quarter an unusual accident happened -- an Oshawa player in an attempt for the basket, shot the ball into the fluorescent lamp! A bulb came tumbling down with a crash scaring everyone, but fortunately injuring no one. While the fragments were being swept away the cheerleaders filled in the time with some encouraging cheers. The cheering did wonders to provide the game with more ex- citement, and this time the Juniors were able to give the opposing team some real competition! The third quarter came to a close with O.L.C. in the lead 18-15. Oshawa again began the last quarter by making the first two baskets, and soon the score began to slowly move up for them. Their team perked up with each basket, and, with exceptionally good teamwork, they were able to win with the score of 22-18. From the very beginning of the Senior game there were too many fouls. Towards the end of the third quarter, our star player, Pat, sprained her thumb, and had to sit out for the rest of the game. Because of the numerous fouls our team in particular was limited to what seemed to be only a few players. In the last quarter, both teams were working hard to get the victory for their school. With one minute to play, O.C.C.L made the one and final basket in the quarter winding up the game with the score of 25-20 for them. Right after the games, the exhausted players made their way into the Common Room where milk and cookies were await- ing them. O.L.C. VERSUS O.C.C.I. On March 29th, O.L.C. played against Oshawa Central Collegiate Institute. This - 57 - JOKES Beryl: I hear a mouse squeaking. Jane: Well, get up and oil it!

According to latest statistics, it has been revealed that 93% of the graduates of O.L.C, have secured husbands. As man- getters they thus rank 11.7% higher than The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, whose motto is: " We always get our man " . Carolyn: How are you this morning? Marg: Fine. Carolyn: Well, then why don ' t you notify your face? For the roommate who tosses and turns in bed: cast-iron pyjamas.
