Our heartiest congratulations to those girls who,, graduating from Trafalgar last year, entered into McGill with such high honours, Carol Robertson heading the list of private schools and the other girls all ranking high. Surely this is an incentive to m ke the girls work to keep up the record which has been established. The past year 1920-1921 has been one of unbroken work. Each year has something which marks it as being different to those which have preceded it and this year the first seeds of self-govern- ment have been sown. We have been given, in a small measure, an opportunity of proving that the girls are capable of governing themselves. At first there were some who did not realize just how much depended upon their co-operation with the Sixth Form girls. That this is necessary has now become clear to all and next year we hope that some new privilege may be granted to the girls. The Magazine has always been controlled by the girls them- selves. Each year a committee is elected by the votes from the whole school and the girls who are elected are made responsible for the work in connection with the Magazine. This year the Magazine 12 staff has been enlarged by the offices of advertising manager and art representative. They have been found to be of great assistance in dividing more evenly the work, which had to be done before by fewer girls, and we advise that in future these offices should remain. The editors wish to thank the girls both past and present who have contributed to the Magazine in any way, especially Margaret Robert- son, who has been of much assistance to the Magazine staff. Some of us are leaving school for good and it is with feelings of regret, mingled with expectations of the future that we go. We carry with us happy memories of the past, of the good times which we have had at Traf., enriched by the ideals which the school has given us.

Trustee 1895-1919 14 3n fl emortam I THE LATE SIR WILLIAM PETERSON, M.A., LL.D., K.C.M.G. BY Rev. George Duncan, M.A., D.D., President This year brings another loss to Trafalgar in the death of one of its distinguished ex-presidents, Sir William Peterson. As principal of McGill University, Sir William was for twenty-four years a governor of Trafalgar, and after the retirement of the Rev. Dr. Barclay became its president. In the words of the Rev. Principal Fraser at the memorial service in the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul: " Principal Peterson was primarily a scholar and adminis- trator. He magnified the office of the teacher, and deplored the apathy of the public towards those entrusted with the training of the future manhood and womanhood of the nation. He never ceased to protest against the narrow idea that education consists mainly in the acquiring of knowledge and is to be measured by success in examinations: and he constantly held up to teachers of youth the need of caring for such things as good manners, courtesy, consideration for others, respect for seniors, friendly politeness to all. " Character to Sir William was the end of all education. Those who know of his work at Trafalgar, remember his intimate and kindly interest in the members of the teaching staff, and his sympathetic personal management of the scholars in their various studies. His acquaintance in detail with the curriculum and life of the school, and the high ideal of education which he upheld before all, contributed greatly to the success and prestige of Trafalgar. Its affiliation to McGill he strove to make a real and vital thing. One can never forget his enthusiastic support of music and art in their elevating and enriching influence upon the young women of tf)-day. Lonely with a scholar ' s shyness. Principal Peterson was never more in his atmosphere than in touch with the school life of Tra- falgar. Loyal to all that makes for true education and true citizen- ship, his loyalty must inspire all who share his deep attachment to Trafalgar, where his scholarship, administration and personality must j)ro ' e an abiding influence. 15 IMPRESSIONS OF BARRIE ' S PLAYS The stage is the best medium of interpreting the ideas of the author. It reaches a larger audience and does so in a more im- pressive way then any other means. As a rule comedy is much more appreciated than more serious drama, but comedy must be tempered with something worth while to make it at all lasting. On the other hand, drama without humour to lighten it is un- balanced. It takes a master playwright to combine the two so that his comedies have an underlying meaning, and his dramas are full of that whimsical humour which makes Barrie so famous. Barrie has an eye for the ridiculous and sees the absurd in every situation. He cannot leave a solemn state of affairs alone, but slips in a little comedy to remind us of the brighter side of life. Apart from his sense of humour however Barrie has a great faculty for stirring one ' s imagination. He has a very vivid imagin- ation himself, which only needs his ability as a playwright to give 16 it reality. Although his plays are very fanciful, they are yet so human in their characters that the audience falls into a state of easy belief and interest at once, and is then whisked off into a series of adventures drawn purely from the imagination. In spite of this obvious fact, one feels that it is perfectly natural because Barrie makes use of the most ordinary, accustomed emotions. By these means, for instance, he takes us ofif to the Never Never Land with Peter Pan and Wendy, John and Michael. The latter, who is just four years old and has only recently learned to fly, keeps falling asleep and dropping down through space to the sea — and Peter teases Wendy by keeping her in suspense until the last min- ute, when he swoops down and catches Michael just as his toes are getting wet, and wakens him. Then in the Never Never Land they have the most amazing adventures, which keep going around in circles; as for instance, Captain Hook is after Peter, the crocodile is after the Pirate (having eaten one of his hands he wants to follow it up with a whole meal), and the Indians are after the crocodile, and so on until it comes back to Peter again. So they live in a continuous round of thrills and excitement. Again in a " Kiss for Cinderella " we are carried off on the wings of Barrie ' s imagination, and this time also it is to a land of child ' s fancy. It is really the fancy of a little sick slavey of London who in her delirium thinks that she is Cinderella, and we are permitted to go with her to the ball, where they serve ices and cones which the Queen devours as greedily as any small boy. Here we see the ex- travagant splendour of colour and costume that a child would picture, and as one event follows another helter-skelter as in a dream, Cinderella rollicks feverishly through the gaieties to find, when she comes out of her delirium, that the Prince is hovering over her in the form of her heroic Policeman! As the curtain falls he presents her with a tiny glass slipper, and his heart at the same time. We feel that it has been a glimpse into dreamland. In the play, " Dear Brutus " , founded on Shakespeare ' s lines, " The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings, " we see the characters go into the Mystic Wood which springs up over night,, and as all these people feel that at some time in their lives they took the wrong turning, there they live for a few hours the life they might have had. Although this play is of a more serious type than most written by Barrie, it has its comedy too. The young man who was in love with one woman and married to another, went into the Wood for a second chance and found that if, when he had come to this turning, he had mar- ried the girl he thought he loved, he would still be passionately making love to someone else, in fact, to his real wife! The most aristf)cratic woman in the party, who had never married, found in the Wood that she would have been married to the butler of her host. As everyone remembered his or her experiences in the Wood even after they came out of it and ba( k to real life, it led to many complica- 17 tions. The funny, little, fairy-like man called Lob, who asked these people to his home in the country just in order to play with them, to send them into the Wood and see the results, brings about a happy re-union through his efforts between a husband and wife who have become almost hopelessly estranged. The play furnishes food for thought, and though it is very fanciful it has a double meaning and is quite unlike such light comedies as " Peter Pan " or a ' ' Kiss for Cinderella " . " Dear Brutus " shows us a great truth more vividly than many a drama which confines itself solely to situations that are possible. It works out a familiar domestic problem in a charming manner, having nothing sordid or bitter about it. In it Barrie draws many appealing characters, particularly that of the artist ' s little daughter who might have been. She is a rather wistful little thing and we feel all along that a vague sadness hangs over her. This is given reality when the artist goes out of the Wood again — he has to leave the daughter there, where his glimpse into the life he might have had gave her life for a few hours. E.B.— VI. AD ITALIAM The editor requests of me, Since I have sailed across the sea, An article on Italy. Not being known as authoress. This wish affects with great distre ss One whom the gods in no way bless. Well, one sails o ' er the azure sea, (There ' s very little else to see) And lands in sunny Napoli. The beggars swarm in multitude: The customs officers are rude. And wildly gesturing guides intrude. After a hot and noisy night Disturbed by many an insect bite, The traveller welcomes back the light. Vesuvius is near Pompeii, We board the train and ride away After at least an hour ' s delay. Next we must visit ancient Rome, Climb St. Peter ' s lofty dome, And shiver through a catacomb. 18 In Florence there are yards of lace, And miles of galleries we pace, To scan each picture ' s lovely face. Our stay in Venice ends too soon, We love St. Mark ' s, the wide lagoon. The gondolas, but best, the moon. The people, who live in t he sun Of this warm land, are full of fun. And never let a thing they ' ve done Disturb or mar their peace of mind. Why should they let a promise bind When there ' s a good excuse to find? The laughing peasants in the street. Ear-rings jingling, bare of feet, Are picturesque, but are not neat! There seems to be no middle class. The aristocracy we pass At every step. They ' re thick as grass. The women are of beauty rare. With limpid eyes and jet-black hair They have a really charming air. The men who are not strong are few. To army training this is due. For discipline they must go through. Weeks have slipped by, and it is time To bid farewell to this warm clime Of golden past and dreams sublime. The ship steams out, and the dying day Shows twinkling lights around the Bay, . Whi le the waves are lit by the sun ' s last ray. E.W.— VI. « A LAMENT As I was walking through the school cellar I was very much startled to hear a gruff voice talking; as I stopped to listen this is what I heard : " It is very hard when one is not treated with proper considera- tion. I have stood in the sc hool garden for many years and given my shade to generations of Trafalgar girls and now to be chopped down for firewood. The very idea! I was rotten at the core, was 19 I? Well why did not someone come and put some cement in me? Or leave me alone? I could have lived for a great many more years! " A voice which seemed to come from a lump of coal answered the log of wood. " You would have come to the same end anyway. I was once a piece of a fine tree; but after lying under the earth for centuries I was dug up and for what? The same thing you were chopped down for! To keep these mortals warm! Ah me! seeing that the highest thing in life is service, if we can give that after we are dead, which few people can do, we should be satisfied and not complain. " This conversation set me thinking and I became reconciled to the loss of the dear old walnut tree. G.B.J.— IV.A 3 20 THE FOURTH FORM MASQUERADE On the night of February 4, the Fourth Form gave a masquerade for the two Third Forms and the boarders. On entering one hardly recognized the hall so transformed was it with hearts, balloons, plants, and other decorations. On this occasion the host was a handsome young sailor who met us at the door and introduced us to many familiar and unfamiliar people. In the grand march many costumes were seen, and we found many people of queer lands and times had come to visit us. There were people of long ago, people from nursery rhymes, ladies from foreign lands and even two people belonging to the land of Oz, the Patchwork Girl and the Scare-crow. After dancing, refreshments were served by bold brigands and dainty Quaker-maids as well as other costumed people. Three prizes were given, the first to the most original, who was the Patchwork Girl. The second prize went to the funniest, who was a clown, and the third to the well-known Mephistopheles. One of the most amusing things of the evening was dancing with unknown people and guessing who they were. One saw bold pirates and old-fashioned ladies dancing together as though it was quite the usual custom. Afterwards, before breaking up for the evening, God Save the King and Auld Lang Syne were sung; then we parted, after cheering the Fourth Form for their most delightful masquerade. — K.A.— III.-B S A SONG There is a school in Montreal whose name starts with a T, Round which all big and little girls will always long to be, And there each morn at nine o ' clock the heated pupils stream, For thoughts are bent with strong intent on school till one fifteen. Although the scholar turns his thoughts to French and Shakes- peare ' s plays. Like other mortals ' thoughts they run to June and holidays. Geometry lx)oks, and Latin prose will then be put away. Algebra sums, and history notes will in the dust turn grey. Reading we ' ll leave as a mem ' ry of school lest summertime prove too gay. F.W.— V. 21 SCHOOL ALPHABET A has left us we ' re sorry to say, B gives supplies on every Tuesday, C signs slips behind a closed door, D means an hour spent in room four, E makes us take our baths far too cold, F keeps track of our debts, so I ' m told, G spoils our drawings with infinite care, H only boarders and prefects go there, I causes stains to be scrubbed off on Friday, J must enjoy our " tres bon frangais " , K is what we came here to get, L is queen of the Fifth Form set, M daily tells us that x equals y, N K.B. we obey and ne ' er ask " why? " O all clothes with that name you must mark, P their bite ' s not as bad as their bark, 0 we can ' t answer and too often ask, R to explain it — a holiday task. S we actu ' Uy learn from a man, T give bad marks whenever they can. U blows the whistle in basket-ball games. V who wins it never complains. W be careful to hide during gym. X fills us all with joy to the brim, Y is our editor- — she ' ll never grow old, Z is the end and our story is told. R.D. — VL TRAFALGAR GARDEN The garden is large, encircled by a gravel walk; between it and the fence trees and flowers grow plentifully. In 1920 the crowning feature of the garden was the two noble trees, which stood like sentries at each upper corner of the lawn. One was a walnut, the other a chestnut. They are the central figures in many snap-shots taken of the garden, and are well remembered by the " old girls " who rested in their shade on warm spring days. The old apple tree on the lawn and the small elm near the school will, doubtless, be remembered. In March of 1921, the scene is. entirely different, the flower beds are hidden beneath a half-melted bank of snow and the lawn is a miniature frozen plain with patches of brown, soggy grass just beginning to show. However these changes are not the greatest, for the chestnut and the apple tree have been taken down. Fate has decreed that the lives of the walnut tree and the elm must end. In an ice storm during the winter, they were split and torn and eventually fell to the ground, and will probably come to an unromantic end as fire-wood. The loss of these trees is felt by all who have been in the school for any length of time and who knew and loved them. R.M.— IV.A. 22 SCHOOL DICTIONARY Teacher — One who works us hard and gives us no credit for our labours. Knowledge — A useful thing sadly lacking in some of us. Latin — One of the dead languages, unduly troublesome owing to the fact that it has not been buried. Report — A very terrifying document issued every term, and re- quiring much explanation at home. Joy — A sensation generally noted for its absence when reports arrive at home. Essays — Instruments of torture both to the writer and to the reader. Minute — A period of sixty seconds — just long enough to receive a bad mark in. Detention — Time spent on Wednesday afternoon instead of at- tending the matinee. Awe — That which juniors display (?) toward the Sixth Form. Athletics — That which requires us to rise early and take a cold bath. A.K.— VL ARMISTICE DAY This is the day when but two years ago The great glad news that war was at an end Flashed o ' er the Empire, fallen hopes to mend In lands of tropic heat and lands of snow: Again the church bells ring and whistles blow But with this joy there also seems to blend A thought more solemn; men to defend Their country died with faces to the foe. And yet to consecrate one day for praise Is not enough; by action, word and deed Keep fresh their untold deeds in many ways; Of statues built to honour them we read, But, better still, live nobly all our days; In years to come let service be our creed. M.Y.— VL 23 FIRE-DRILL IN THE HOUSE Deep silence reigns. Not a whisper — not a single stealthy footstep is heard throughout the house — nothing but quietness, still as the tomb. Each form lies, stretched on the bed — waiting — expectant — but wordless. Dressing-gowns are draped on the backs of chairs; slippers are placed in two exact geometrical planes by the bedside. Dainty boudoir caps lie beside them, while eiderdowns are rolled in con- venient, but uncomfortable bundles on the feet of each sleeper. Not a stir — not a word. Suddenly — hark! — the strained atmosphere is broken by a harsh clanging sound. But once it sounds; comes a hush; then pande- monium bursts forth. Flying forms leap from their couches, shoes are donned, usually on the wrong feet, so that much valuable time is lost — gowns follow, hanging on one arm and trailing behind, and lastly, with much accuracy and precision, comes the dainty cap. At last, all is ready. Each eager figure rushes to the corridor. Stop! w hat was that! Ah, yes! And all dive back once more to retrieve the forgotten eiderdown. Two orderly lines hurry down- stairs, each person impeded by the dangling gowns, and the ends of the eiderdowns, hung toga-like about the shoulders of those in front. The open air is reached. The fresh breeze of evening revives twenty-eight drooping souls — and twenty-eight weary sighs strike the tingling stars. In tense voices the rolls are called — none missing- — no casualties; all is well; all are safe. The figures having so bravely rescued them- selves, trudge ofi to each deserted cot. Fire-drill is over. M.H.S.— VL NIGHT I SEE thee coming, silent Night, Across the darkening sky, Silvery moonbeams for thy light. As twilight ' s shadows die. Thy dusky tresses poppy wreathed Entwined upon thy brow. The sleepy scent which twilight breathed, But who fast sleepeth now. The little flowers which thou madest sleep. Each one with golden dream. And drowsy world in slumber deep While thou, Night! reign supreme. F.W.— V. 24 A CONVERSATION " Really! " said Science Book indignantly, " by all the laws of gravitation and otherwise, that book should not have landed on me — realK ' it is too outrageous! " " It gives to me — how you say? ah! ze hysterics! " interposed Monsieur La Patrie. " I was hit too, really, it was the most outrageous bump in His- tory, " put in History Book. " Who was it who hit us? " " I am afraid it was I, " said the Lady of the Lake. " Ah! in that case . . . . " began History Book graciously — but here Kirkland and Scott cut in irritably; " Fiddlesticks! stuff and nonsense! though I suppose it was not her fault — those Humans again, I suppose! " " Ah! forgive those foolish mortals , " began Poetry Book. " Shan ' t! " cried Kirkland and Scott. " Pax! pax! " cried Elementa Latina. " What on earth does he mean? " queried Science Book. " Peace, " replied the Dictionary. " Peace yourself then! " shouted back Kirkland and Scott. " Cease to fight, you imbeciles! " said Poetry Book. " What? " cried Kirkland and Scott. " Quid, " echoed Elementa Latina. What would have happened next I do not know had not Monsieur La Patrie cut in with; " Silence — how you say? Be quiet? the Hu- man — she approaches! " At these words the turmoil ceased, at least for a few minutes, until the Human had gone away. B.d ' A.— Upper H. THE SIXTH FORM DEBATES Last Fall all the Sixth Form had a debating club. We debated every Tuesday; we debated fast and furious. It was very enjoyable listening to another speak, but when we ourselves arose to win over the opposition it was strange how fondly we thought of the little cubby-hole under Miss Bryan ' s desk. We wished it was bigger. Then with splendid heroism we would plunge into the middle of our carefully prepared arguments; the middle, never the beginning. We get on swimmingly for a few minutes and have visions of the first Canadian woman in Parliament, Sunday Illustrated, etc., when — disconcerting sr)und — a chuckle is heard. We look at our feet, nothing wrong there, " and-de " , we look at our hands, nothing wrong there, " and-de " we look at our fellow pupils. They are cer- tainly amus ' d. What have we said? " And-de " we look at Miss P)r ' an, " and-de " she is counting them! The room swims. Only one thing can we see clearly, our own desk. We make the distance between us as short as possible amidst a storm of applause. Then we hear our opponent explain that all we have said is utterly false. We got, at the same time, some important results. We decided that women should have a university education, and should take up politics, that solitude is more conducive to moral and mental development than society, that life in a city is more beneficial than life in a small community, that a set curriculum is better for pupils than a choice of subjects. The most important decisions, however, were that a constant attendance at the movies is detrimental to the development of the individual, and that powder is detrimental to the complexion. The arguments were heated, but they were child ' s play compared to the battles which ensued in the Sixth Form cloak-room after- wards. Nobody wore her best hat on Tuesday. Now, when we are aged, and can, like Old Father William — " finish the goose, both the bones and beak " , we shall say, " I argued in the Sixth Form debates, and the muscular strength that it gave to my jaw has lasted the rest of my life. " R.S.— VL $ THE NIGHT BEFORE EXAMS ' TwAS the week of exams, and all through the school, There was not a word spoken nor broken a rule. Our pencils were sharpened and near by were laid. With ruler and compass to come to our aid. Both girls and the teachers had settled their mind. And all were prepared for a steady week ' s grind. All evening we studied till terribly late. Trying to find in our memories a name or a date, And then, quite tired out, to bed we would go, And dreams would arise that would cause us much woe, For Caesar and Shakespeare seemed quite to change place, And " amo " — to love — took the ablative case, And all the French verbs seemed joined into one. And the rays of the moon had more heat than the sun. Poor Chaucer was priest, and Joseph, the poet. And Spenser went blind, though the world didn ' t know it, The sides of triangles were less than the base, And parallel lines were enclosing a space. Charles I. fought at Hastings, and won it what ' s more. And ' Amiens " ended the Seven Years ' War. And so it went on all, all through the night, And when we awoke we were shaking with fright But all were relieved, though real it did seem, To find after all it was only a dream. M.B.J.— V. 26 A WINTER SCENE There was no sign of life in the forest, but from the distance, breaking the calm stillness, came the crackling of the twigs and sometimes the song of the trapper as he made his way on snow- shoes to his traps. Once or twice, shrill cries were heard coming from some trapped animal, but these only served to intensify the stillness. The ever- greens were weighed down with the snow which clung to their branches. The deep azure blue of the sky overhead, together with the green trees, decked in a dazzling whiteness, and the long, flickering shadows cast by them on the snow, made a scene which was like some Fairyland, and one almost expected to find there all the spirits of winter and perhaps even Jack Frost himself. 3 THE DAILY HOUSE ROUTINE AT TRAP.

THE SIXTH FORM SLEIGH-DRIVE Early in January, the Sixth Form decided to give a sleigh-drive and the day fixed upon was Friday, the 22nd of January. On Monday of that week the thermometer registered about forty degrees below zero and practically all the Sixth offered to stay at school and look after the supper. It gradually became less icy, however, and by Friday it was nearer forty above. Friday after- noon was spent between decorating the playroom and watching for the rain. About half-past four there was a smart shower, but fortunately it stopped a little later and it turned out to be a nice balmy evening. We went all the way round the two mountains and it really seemed as if all the small boys on the way must have heard of our drive for we were pelted with snow-balls at every turn. We enlivened the way by singing, and the effect no doubt would have been good if the two ends of the sleigh had been able to agree on a song, but most of the time they insisted on singing differ- ent ones. On arriving back at school, we had supper and a few dances before we went home, and we all felt very grateful to Mrs. Young for enabling us to have such a jolly evening. M.A.R.— VL 28 RESOLUTIONS " The clock strikes seven — I yawn and say, " Oh. many good things will I do to-day, I will get right up, though ' tis early still, And when I am dressed I will study until The breakfast bell rings, I will not be late. But start for school at a quarter past eight. Arriving there I ' ll be sure to see, That my shoes are put where they ought to be, I ' ll fill up the ink-wells with greatest of care, When we go up for benches — of course I ' ll be there! I ' ll not let my thoughts wander, nor at noon linger late, But be out of the cloak-room " — the clock strikes eight! I jump out of bed feeling very dismayed, And the harder I hurry the more I ' m delayed, I rush through my breakfast and run down the street, Just missing my car by a couple of feet. After waiting for ages I see one at last. Though it ' s going at a pace which is surely not fast. I run up the hill for I know I am late. And breathless arrive at the Simpson Street gate. The class-room I reach at two minutes to nine, And quickly join in at the end of the line. And after that day it may safely be said That I don ' t make such plans ' til I get out of bed. M.B.J.— V. L ' HISTOIRE D ' UN ARBRE II y a un arbre sur Simpson Street qui se trouve pres de notre classe. Les branches s ' etendent au travers de la fenetre et nous regardent quand nous avons la grammaire et la traduction. II pense, " Les pauvres filles! Comme c ' est triste qu ' elles soient si V)etes. " Mais I ' arbre nous aime, et quand le samedi et le dimanche arrivent il dit, " Mais elles ont beaucoup a travailler. Elles sont plus adroites que les gargons. " II a beaucoup de temps pour penser, cet arbre, et pendant toutes les longues annees qu ' il a vecu, il a vu des milliers de fiUes. II a sur eille la premiere classe quand il etait un petit arbre. II sait pourquoi nous ne savons pas les premieres pages du livre de la grammaire mais il ne le raconte a personne que son ami, I ' ecureuil, sage arl;re! Voyez-vous il nous aime! R.S.— VI. 29 CENDRILLON Le onze fevrier nous avons eu un theatre fran(;ais, nomme Cendrillon. II fut donne par la 2ieme classe. Beatrice Howell jouait le role de Cendrillon. Janet Smart et Betty Mudge, les deux soeurs de Cendrillon; Joan Chillas devait etre le prince, mais, a la derniere minute, etant malade, son role fut rempli par Mile. Y. Dorion. Hazel Howard fut le pere, et Ruth Bishop la fee marraine. II y avait trois actes et cinq tableaux. Le premier tableau representait: " Avant le Bal la chambre des soeurs de Cendrillon. " Rose et Silvie se querellent pour savoir qui le Prince aime le mieux. Rose dit ' Le Prince vient a moi la premiere, " et Silvie, furieuse, repondit: " A toi! c ' est a moi! " Rose hors d ' elle- meme: " J te donnerai une bonne gifle. " A ce moment le pere entre et desirant mettre fin a cette querelle, dit: " Voulez vous bien vous taire! " Le 2ieme tableau: Cendrillon au coin du feu chante une petite chanson appelant sa marraine. Celle-ci apparait avec sa baguette fait des signes autour du feu. Les petites fees arrivent en dansant. Cendrillon accourt dans son costume de bal. Elle part accom- pagnee de bons souhaits de la fee marraine. Le 3ieme tableau: " Le Bal de la Cour. " Le Roi et la Reine assis sur des trones. Le minuet de la cour danse par les seigneurs et dames de la cour. Le Prince entre. Cendrillon fait son apparition au ba l; le Prince s ' approche d ' elle et dit: " Voulez-vous me faire Thonneur de danser avec moi? " Le bal est ouvert par Cendrillon et le Prince. Cendrillon entend sonner minuet, et disparait de la cour, en perdant sa pantoufle. Le Prince la ramasse; la pose sur son coeur et dit: " J ' epouserait la jeune fille a qui cette pantoufle appartient? " Le 4ieme tableau: " Apres le Bal, chez Cendrillon. " Les deux soeurs se querellent encore. Le chambellan frappe a la porte, port- ant sur un coussin une pantoufle. Rose et Silvie disent en I ' essayant " Elle me va! Elle me va! " Mais elle ne va pas. Cendrillon chante dans la cuisine a ce moment. Le chambellan demande: " Quelle est cette douce voix? Appelez-la. " Cendrillon essaye la pantoufle et elle lui va. Les deux soeurs demandent pardon a genoux. Cen- drillon accepte d ' etre la Princesse du Prince et demeurer dans son palais. Le dernier tableau: " Le Marriage a la Cour. " On voit le Roi et la Reine assis sur leurs trones. Son Altesse le Prince Royal et Cendrillon habillee d ' une robe merveilleuse en- trent et se mettent a genous devant le Roi et la Reine. On les marie. Puis, les deux soeurs de Cendrillon sont aussi mariees a deux seig- neurs de la cour. La piece finit par un choeur de paysans et de paysannes qui viennent feliciter le Prince et la Princesse de leur heureux marriage. J.C.— 11. 30 MLLE. GUERIN ' S ADDRESS Before the Christmas holidays, Mile. Guerin, the foundress of the Franco-Canadian Orphanage, came to Trafalgar and gave us a most interesting address. She explained the great need of this home and many incidents where it had been of such benefit to the people. Mile. Guerin came to Canada in order to secure the interest of the Canadian people, after she had successfully launched her work in France. I do not think her mission will be very difficult if she impresses others as she did the girls of Trafalgar. This organization is to be financed with the help supplied by the French and Canadians as the name implies. There are branches ) called pouponnieres in Toronto, Hamilton, and London, Ontario. These pouponnieres care for the children until they are six years of age, and then they are sent to the Orphanage where they are well educated and enjoy a happy home life. One of the sad incidents Mile. Guerin witnessed during the w ' ar was the case of Lady . Lady ' s husband was killed in one of the first battles and the Germans were occupying her Chateau. She was trying to escape with her three small children but was caught and ordered to return as a prisoner, though they left th e children behind. For months the poor mother was kept without knowing the fate of her little ones. After the war was over she went to Paris and one of her friends urged her to go to the Orphanage. She thought it was useless but went and you can imagine her surprise and joy when she found her children safe and very happy in their new home. One of the forms in Trafalgar after hearing Mile. Guerin ' s appeal gladly offered to give their monthly subscription towards this splendid work. E.A.— V. ANTICIPATION OF THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS Air: Till we Meet Again. (Chorus only). Smile the while the holidays draw near, Though exams, inspire you with fear; Thoughts of restfulness are sweet After stewing in the heat; Not a French or Latin verb Peaceful moments to disturb. Thoughts of headlong joy to curb Till we meet again. M.A.— IV. 31 32 JOHNNY ' S FRIGHT Johnny was a little grey fox, who lived with his mother in a low cave in the rocks. He was never allowed to go out by himself, because he was too young. One day Johnny ' s mother said to him, " You must stay at home, Johnny, because I am going to hunt for dinner, " and went away. " Now, " thought Johnny, " I will show mother that I can do my own hunting, and I won ' t have to stay at home like a baby, " and with this he crept away. But hunting didn ' t seem as nice as he thought it would, and he found it very uninteresting to be scratched by brambles. Suddenly, Johnny saw what he thought looked like a nest; he went up close to it, when all of a sudden he heard " Whoo-o-o! " He turned tail and ran for home, tumbling on top of his mother, who had just come home, and was going out to hunt for him. So Johnny ' s hunt ended, and he was glad enough to eat the nice fat chicken his mother had brought home. MY BED IS A BOAT My bed is a boat, On the dream sea I float; Ahoy! ahoy! look out for that buoy! And thus my dreams travel on. Till at last it ' s dawn. A. B.— I. « SIMPSON STREET HILL Simpson Street Hill has only one good point, which is, it is very nice to walk down. Otherwise it is the worst street in Montreal. When you are late, and go rushing and puffing up the hill, you feel you could knock it to the ends of the earth. If it only could be closed up like a telescope people ' s love for it would increase greatly. In the winter, when the sidewalk is de- cidedly icy, walking up the hill, every three steps you take forward, you slip back two of them. In summer you are so hot, that by the time you reach the top of the hill, you have had a heated argu- ment and a quarrel with your best friend. There is not a word in the dictionary that would express the longness and the warmness, and the slipperiness of Simpson Street Hill. G.W.— Upper II. SPRING MORNING IN THE WOODS The budding clustering branches Of an olden chestnut tree Greet spring ' s busy workers, Birdies blythe they be. In a nut-lined hollow.

The whistling whale had a good-sized mouth It measured three feet from north to south; But when he whistled he puckered it up Till it was as big as a coffee cup. The people came from far and near, This wonderful whistling whale to hear, And in a most obliging way He stood on his tail and whistled all day. J.S.— II. 35 THE GNOME AND THE FISH In a tiny little boat, Upon the ocean ' s foam, Rocking up and down. Sat a funny little gnome. He wore a little coat of green. And stockings of red, And a funny little cap Was perched upon his head. His boat was a leaf. Both broad and thick. The sail was a feather, The mast was a stick. The winds began to blow And the waves began to rise, And the little gnome jumped up Uttering frightened cries. All the ships were out of sight. And there was no land near, The little gnome began to shout — ' ' Help! Help! " he cried in fear. Then up from the bottom of the sea Appeared a silver fish. He said, " What is it, little gnome? I ' ll grant you any wish. " " I wish that I were home again. With my brothers, " said the gnome. And then before he knew it. He was once more at home. M.D.— Upper II. OUR PET RABBITS My sister and I had two little bunnies. They were quite wild w " hen we got them, but we soon tamed them, and when they saw us they used to run to us. A funny thing that happened was that one day they ran to us in their cage, and so we took them in our arms and walked down to the shore. My sister ' s bunny jumped out of her arms into the water. It was not hurt, but in the morning we found its tail on the grass. Its tail never grew again while we were up at the country. When we were going home to Montreal we had to give them away to the farmef, to take care of for the winter. M.H.— I. 36 A NEW GIRL AT TRAFALGAR " Now, Mary, be quick and hurry, Or you will be late for school; And it ' s not a good way to begin the term, By breaking the teachers ' rule. " So Mary got on her hat and coat. And bravely trudged up the hill ; For she was going to Trafalgar, And mostly against her will. She had never been to school before. She was only seven years old ; And now she was going to Trafalgar, And she was mere shy than bold. At last arriving at the school. She found it full of girls. It seemed to her there were thousands, And all of them had curls. At length she was shown her class-room. But ' twas all so strange and new, ' I don ' t know any one here, " she cried, " And I want to go home, boo-hoo. " The lessons went on as usual. And soon she dried her eyes, " After all, " she said, " it ' s a very nice place. And it ' s such a big surprise. " E.P. — Upper II. THE DOLL A Parisian doll in a little French shop.

The tennis tournament was very successful and a greater number of entries were made for it than on former years. The weather could not have been better and the games were played off according to schedule. The final game was played between R. Dunton and M. Carsley. After a very close match, Roba defeated Muriel and thereby won the tournament. On Tuesday, November 30, the Trafalgar Basket-ball Team played a practice match with the team of Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School, in the Victoria Gymnasium. The game was very closely contested, the score at half time being 7 all. The match resulted in a final victory for our team with a score of 25-18. TRAFALGAR TEAM Forwards: — E. Dunton, (Capt.), M.

GYMNASTIC COMPETITION Last year there was intense excitement in the realm of the gym- nasium. Every form from the First to the Sixth was striving towards one goal, every girl was doing her part towards helping her form to win the coveted shield. Certain rules were made concerning the uniform dress of the girls, which, if violated resulted in the loss of points. The competition took place in June, 1920, before an audience composed chiefly of ' Trafalgarites " . The judges were Miss E. M. Cartwright, physical director of the Royal Victoria College, McGill University, and Col. Lorne Gilday, D.S.O. The girls of the First Form were the first to demonstrate the table of the lower school, commanded by their captain and lieu- tenant. These officers were very efficient and self-possessed. The other forms of the lower school followed in succession and Upper II. was the proud winner of the shield, which it rightly deserved. After a few minutes rest, the programme was continued by the various forms of the upper school. As the competition drew to a close the excitement amongst the spectators and the competitors ran very high. The work of each form was so good, that until the judges ' decision was given, it appeared as if any one of them might be the winner. It was noted however that competition was parti- cularly keen between the Fifth and Sixth Forms. The shield was awarded by the judges to the Sixth Form, who won by a small number of points. J.H.-VL 8 43 TRAFALGAR HOUSE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The first meeting of the Association took place on Tuesday evening, September 21, when the following officers were elected: Honorary Advisor _ _ _ _ MISS GUMMING Ghairman _ _ . _ _ . MISS EDWARDS Secretary-Treasurer _ _ _ H. McLAUGHLIN GONVENERS OF GOMMITTEE . . I. McLAUGHLIN M. MURRAY The Association is larger this year than in previous years, the number of members being twenty-eight. The customary badge is held by each member and the annual subscription of twenty- five cents was collected from each. Only one dormitory match has been played this year, resulting in a score of 22-16 in favour of the lower dormitory. It is hoped that during the last term more matches will take place, both between the dormitories and with the day girls. A LARGE audience witnessed the Annual Gymnastic Demonstra- tion, which took place on the 11th of March. The demonstration was, in every sense, a success. Behind the closed doors of the gymnasium quietness and order reigned, and on the floor nothing happened to mar the joy of the evening. The first number was the senior girls ' gymnastic table. Each girl fully realized how much depended upon her work, and cheer- fully did her best — no mean effort — for this exhibition was typical of the whole evening. The little ones came on next, giving a good exhibition of their year ' s work. Some of the children were a trifle nervous, but all combined to follow the example set by the seniors. In the third number, balancing, some clever and graceful work was seen. The girls on the high beam attracted particular attention, and were ably supported by those on the lower stands. On their departure, they were followed by the juniors. These had a club race, and much excitement was shown by the spectators. The winning team. Upper 2, was roundly applauded, and all left the floor to make way for the dancers of the minuet. To watch the girls as they went through the intricate steps of this fine old dance, one could almost imagine that one had suddenly been transported through the years to the stately home of some old- time squire, where beautiful ladies and fine gentlemen were treading a measure to the music of the fiddle and spinnet. Gaptain Vice-Gaptain A. KILGOUR G. HOLMAN THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION 44 When the dancers had glided out of view, one was quickly brought to the present by the brisk entrance of the very modern girls who were to compete for the silver cup, a prize given by Mrs. Beard for the highest jump. This distinction was won by Roba Dunton, with Victoria Torrington as a close second. The doors had no sooner closed upon the jumpers when the in- termediate gym. class strode in, heads erect, shoulders square, firmly determined to out-do both the juniors and seniors. They nearly succeeded, too, but not quite. Instead, they just came about equal. Following this, some of the senior dancing class gave an inter- esting exhibition of ancient and modern dances — the mazurka, the gavotte, and the fox-trot. Their place was taken by the rope-climbing girls, who soared to dizzy heights, and then floated down, easily and without mis- hap, to the evident relief of some of the audience. An old country dance, Hunsdon House, was the next number, an-d it proved itself one of the prettiest of the evening. It was given by the juniors, and the little girls entered into the spirit of the dance with the same vivacity which characterized the whole demonstration. Hunsdon House was followed by the senior club race, another exciting event. The Third Form team won, and blushing modestly, retired with their opponents behind the gymnasium doors, leaving the floor to the little Dutch ladies and gentlemen, who executed the most popular dance of the evening. It was quite short, but so characteristic and altogether delightful that the audience was charmed. After a repetition had been given, the dancers left the floor. The last gymnastic number was the senior gym. This, like the other events, was very successful, although several of the girls found difficulty with the leap-frog. The last, and one of the most important performances of the evening was " The Sandman " . A number of children, with dolls and balloons, are amusing themselves, singing and dancing, when the sly old Sandman enters. He has made a resolution this night to take their spirits all to F ' airyland; so he chuckles with glee when he casts his bewitching sand in their eyes, to see how quietly they all lie down to sleep. Just as he is done, the beautiful Spirits of the Night float in, singing a lullaby to the sleeping children. When they have gone, Will-o ' -the-Wisp runs in, and calling to the children, tells them that the Faerie Queene is coming. No sooner has she finish- ed speaking, than the Queene glides in, with her little sprites, and (lances before the delighted eyes of all. Then she sends away the Sandman, and awakens Dawn. As if by magic, all the fairies dis- perse. The children, awakened by Dawn, hear the clock strike seven, and juni]) uj). Welcoming the new day with a song, they go dancing from th ' - floor. 45 The whole school lined up for the grand march, and entered the gymnasium for the presentation of the cup, and the captains ' and lieutenants ' badges. Mrs. Duncan gave an interesting little address, and presented Roba Dunton with the cup. Judge Archibald con- gratulated the girls on their work, and presented each captain and lieutenant with her badge. God Save the King was then sung, and the girls filed out. —M.S.— VI. THE INTERMEDIATE DRILL At last the dreadful night arrived, The night they dreaded most. And all the Fifth and Sixth were there, Each waiting at their post. The things went off quite nicely, ' Til it came to Swedish drill ; Intermediates didn ' t do good work. Never could and never will. Their lines they were the crookedest That ever there had been. And the way they did their drill It was the worst way ever seen. At last the doors were opened And downstairs with a run They went to seek the rest they needed After what they ' d done.

Miss Mcintosh described the customs and dress of this old, old race of people and told us many things about them which could not be read in books. She told us very interesting stories about the Chinese famine and also about their religion. The lecture was made even more interesting by the fact that she herself had seen all the sights which she described to us. E.B.— IV.-A. MR. CARSLEY ' S GIFT TO THE SCHOOL Muriel Carsley, who is graduating from the Sixth Form this year, has come through the school from the First Form with a splendid record for work and conduct. Her sister Ethel was also a pupil here for eight years and Mr. Carsley is giving the school a standard flag as a remembrance of his two girls. It is to be presented on closing day and will be placed above the platform in the assembly hall. The flag is something of which we shall all be proud and we would like to take this opportunity of expressing our gratitude to Mr. Carsley and our appreciation of the generous and inspiring gift. MISSION BOXES The following subscriptions have been made during the year: Vimy Ridge Memorial, $50; McGill Campaign, $100; Children ' s Memorial Hospital, $50; School for Crippled Children, $25; Julia Drummond Hostel, $25; Dr. Grenfell ' s Labrador Mission, $30. Subscriptions are to be made to The Victorian Order of Nurses; Magazines for Ste. Agathe Soldiers ' Sanitarium. The Fifth Form are making a voluntary contribution of $75 to help the work of the Pouponnieres (homes for orphans of soldiers) in France. THE ROSS LECTURES The Ross Lectures take place in May. They are to be given by Mr. Blair on Music. 48 THE TRAFALGAR BAND OF MERCY The Trafalgar Band of Mercy is a branch of the much larger or- ganization known as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. There is a branch of this larger society in the city of Montreal, as there is in every city and large town in the Dominion of Canada, as well as in England and the United States. The aim of this society is, as its name implies, to prevent any unnecessary suffering on the part of our dumb friends, and, since the govern- ment has taken an interest in this great work, there are laws against cruelty to animals, and punishments if anyone is found breaking them, which have helped the S.P.C.A. very much. Ofihcers are paid to inspect the stock of farmers, w ho report anyone who has ill-used animals on the premises. The aim of this organization is also to teach the people and especially the children not to be cruel to their pets or other animals whether purposely, thoughtlessly or through ignorance or neglect. Our band is under the direction of a committee of nine girls of our school consisting of six captains, a treasurer, flag-bearer, and secretary under the convenership of Mrs. Keenan. Mrs. Keenan stands between our band and the S.P.C.A. itself and she reports to the other conveners how the Band of Mercy is doing. The captains each have a band of nine girls, who must belong to Trafalgar, and these members pay from one to twenty-five cents annually as a fee, while the members of the committee each pay a dollar. A girl wishing to join has to take this pledge: " I agree to be kind to animals and to do all in my power to protect them from cruelty and to promote humane treatment. " Any captain would be glad to receive the name of anyone who wishes to join and we hope that we soon shall have the whole schcol interested. About once a month moving pictures of animals are shown in various places, to which all members of the S.P.C.A. are cordially in ited. the only fee being to show their membership button, which they receive when they sign the pledge. The committee also thought that it would be entertaining and instructive to give a little play about animals and Miss Cumming has said that we may use the gymnasium hall on such occasions.

I had always longed for wildness and woolliness which I un derstood was at its height in Canada even in this civilized age. So I set out, taking with me such things as bear-skin coats, several revolvers, a hatchet in case of Redskin invasion, and other articles along the same lines. The trip was uneventful and we at length arrived, I knowing not a soul, but having a precious letter of introduction in my pocket. This I presented on arrival to a man who very kindly offered to take me around and introduce me to some of the prominent citizens. I was only too glad, and we started off. As we were walking down the main street two large grizzlies came around the corner of a distant cabin and ambled towards us. I felt a bit apprehensive but my companion hastened to reassure me. ' ' They are tame, " he said, " perfectly harmless, we use them out here instead of horses. Quiet, affectionate beasts they are too, badly misunderstood by you English. Here Girlie; come Fluff and stand on your head for the gentleman. " I will say for Fluff that she did her best, but she was too fat, and rolled over every time. After three efforts she settled on her haunches and stared at me. " What do you feed them on? " I asked. " Well, " he answered, " you know they have very small appetites and are rather fussy about their food. Girlie here likes nothing better than a pail of rolled oats, while Fluff won ' t touch porridge and loves fish of all kinds. " We walked on and after a time arrived in front of a tent. An Indian, splendid in war paint and feathers, came out to meet us. My friend introduced me. " What! " I said, amazed, " not the Hiawatha. " " Yes, " he said, ' ' the only genuine, at your service. " " How is Minnie, " I enquired breathlessly. I saw I had made a blunder for his handsome face clouded. 50 " Who, Ha-ha? " " Yes, " I cried, " you did marry her in the end didn ' t you? " " Oh, yes, " he said, " but we got a divorce last year, found we weren ' t really congenial. " He remained a moment lost in thought, then added brightly, " but I have married again, I want you to meet my second wife, but I am forgetting the duties of a host; do hang your hats on the totem-pole, it seemed to me so useless that I had a couple of pegs put in and now use it as a hat-rack. We complied, and followed him indoors. A tall Indian girl rose from where she had been sitting and came towards us with extended hand. " Why Pocahontas, " I managed to stammer-, " this is a great pleasure, " for it really was she and no other. Pocahontas and I got on wonderfully together — turned out to be kindred spirits from the start. She was a jolly, pretty girl with lots of pep — must have had, to do what she did for old Miles Stan- dish. We used to go butterfly hunting together and got quite chum- my. Hiawatha belonged to the S.P.C.A. so would not allow her to hunt anything else. Their diet at home was entirely vegetarian. I said to her one day, " Your husband is not at all the man he is made out to be, is he? " " No, " she answered, " but people do love to make up a good story, don ' t they? and there is a great deal of the romantic about Hi. " My visit to Canada passed all too quickly and it was with much regret that I went one day to make my final call on the Hiawathas. They were very kind as usual and seemed upset that I was going. Suddenly Hiawatha jumped to his feet. " My dear fellow, " he said, " why not let us run you over in the old Mayflower? My wife and I really enjoy the trip, she needs a change and there is nothing like the sea air for brightening one up. " Pocahontas perceived my astonishment at the mention of the Mayflower and hastened to explain: " Hi bought her a couple of years ago just to use for cruising around the coast, she ' s rather old now, but a good little tub all the same. " They were so insistent that I finally agreed, and we set sail with- out any great delay. The crossing was uneventful but pleasant, and all too short for my liking. On our arrival I tried to persuade my Indian friends to come up to London for the season, assuring them that they would enjoy themselves. They refused however on the grounds that they had to get back for the butterfly season in the early spring. I could not dream of dissuading them under these circumstances, of course, so very reluctantly I bade them good-bye and returned to my duties, my experiences in Canada only memories of the past. An Old Girl. 51 THE OLD GIRLS ' ENTERTAINMENT I WOULD rather write a funeral oration than a write-up of an event. A corpse has not been known to indulge in literary criticism, whereas the reading public or individual — but enough. Brevity will relieve your boredom better than an apologetic foreword. It is more than sufficient introduction when I state that my qualifi- cations as reporter consist in that I was asked and said that I would. I will now begin. On Tuesday, March 22, as you all know, at 8.15 o ' clock, in the assembly hall of Trafalgar Institute, there took place an enter- taining performance in the form of a vaudeville show in which the graduates took part. A bright and colourful poster executed by Helen Ogilvie did its work in the corridor for the benefit of the passers-by, and a simple, but pointed, programme attached in an original manner by one single pin to the curtain likewise did its part when the audience arrived in the hall — and even before. Tod Galloway ' s musical setting of Rudyard Kipling ' s " The Gypsy Trail " was effectively rendered in chorus amid an appro- priate, and certainly unique, setting. A lilting accompaniment of mandolins and the steady glow of the fire were agreeable features of the opening number. When the gypsies had attained the end of the trail and stopped there irrevocably, the epoch-making photo-play, " The Dire Drama of Dead Man ' s Gulch " , was released on the screen. This finished picturization of Western life and ways deals masterfully with the ever green theme of a strong man ' s love and Nemesis, and in such a way as to afford the maximum in heart throbs, thrills and laughs to the spectators. Then, when that was caught again and put back, and when everything was ready, including the cast, they began a play. They got through it successfully. It was called " The Dress Rehearsal of Hamlet " and went much better than was expected. Sparkling dialogues and humourous action characterized this playful dra- matization of an incident incidental to amateur theatricals, the final rehearsal. The uniform excellence of the cast saves me making further remarks. The closing number was an oriental song-fantas} " The Japanese Sandman " . The diva, Mary Bishop, rendered the solo in a colora- tura mezzo-soprano, and a costume of black and orange. The chorus came in dressed in Japanese costume, carrying lanterns, which they swung up and down and from side to side. They sang the chorus, except at the end when they hummed it. A restful touch was the little Sandman himself, attired in soothing shades of brown. The chorus went to sleep on the bare boards at his sleep-inducing approach. A tasteful setting in oriental style had been produced, and in this as in other features the music added to the general effect. — M.M. 52 THE SEA The waves rush up on the yellow sands With a glorious dash of gay white spray — And the wind whistles cheerily in to the land, From the sparkling waters that dance in the bay. And the glistening white gulls that dive and fly Seem the merriest things in sea or sky. The sea is calm and the tide is low, And the little wee pools are left in the sand ; Where you find washed up from the caves below The lovely sea treasures of Fairyland. Guarded safe by a stout little knight. Clad all over in armour tight. The fog comes rolling in to the shore And all is lost in the clinging cloud. The big waves break with a lazy roar As they slip in under the misty shroud. The screeching gulls go wheeling by Like pale white ghosts from an age gone by. But the merriest, wildest thing of all Is the storm that comes tearing down from the sky. The strong wind shouts to the sea-gull ' s call And lashes the waves up mountains high. Till they break at the great cliff ' s iron feet. In a flying column of spray and sleet. H.O. THE GRIFFINTOWN CLUB Going along the street the other day I heard a mother bidding a small boy come in to have his hands and face washed, and adding, " (V)me quickly or people will think you ' re a little boy from Griflin- town. " The threat had the desired result, and evidently, from the haste with which he complied, the popular opinion regarding Ciriflintown must be that little boys from that section of the city are not to be imitated. But behind all the smudges and dirt these same little boys, and girls too, are every bit as human as we are, perhaps not quite as well fed and with a great deal less of the good things of life but just as dear and lovable under it all. One of the yf)ungsters the other day was found crying because her mother, who had to work all day, had left her in charge of four younger kiddies and so she couldn ' t leave them to go to the dental clinic to have an aching tooth pulled out. And she was only eleven years old. It is these little youngsters and their sisters, brothers and parents that the (iriflintown Club is endeavouring to help. Fcr the kiddies, there are clul s where they can learn hew to cook and r);i sew and care for their homes, others where pretty songs and dances help to make them happy, and where girl guide training and gym- nasium keep them fit and healthy. On Saturday morning there is a large kindergarten class, and while the babies are sitting busy in a big circle, singing songs, and cutting out animals from paper, big sister can sit in another part of the big room and learn how to knit and crochet all sorts of warm and attractive articles. If there is a very tiny baby in the family, there is even a place for him at the Club, for a baby welfare centre has been organized just to look after him, to weigh him and to see that he is getting just the right kind of milk to make him grow big and strong ; and his mother can get all sorts of help and advice at the Mothers ' Friendly Club, or be sure of having someone come and visit her when she is sick or in want. The Griffintown Club is not only for girls but for everyone who likes to come and attend the various small clubs or concerts or take books from the library. Factory girls working near by will tell you what a nice wholesome lunch they can get at the cafeteria for a very small sum instead of having to sit and eat their lunch at their work bench. We have been given a very lovely camp and grounds by the Junior League to take the kiddies to this summer. It is so very hard for them to have to stay in the hot city all summer — just playing on the dusty streets without even a blade of green grass to make them feel cool — that we are trying to take each kiddie up for two weeks in the hottest part of the summer. Many of the girls who are in charge of the various clubs and ac- tivities are ' ' old Trafalgar girls " and we are hoping that the pre- sent girls when they are finished school and have some free time, will come down and help us to make these children ' s lives a little brighter and happier. There is a great opportunity to extend the club work and I am sure it is work that will prove interesting and worth while. OLD GIRLS ' NOTES Jessie Brown: Mrs. Douglas Shaw.

We have boiled the hydrant water; We have sterilized the milk; We have strained the prowling microbe Through the finest kind of silk; We have bought and we have borrowed Every patent health device; And at last the doctor tells us That we ' ve got to boil the ice. FAREWELL Once more the spring sunshine is gladdening the hearts of all, and the girls are beginning to joyfully anticipate the delights of the summer holidays. The joy of the Sixth Form girls however is touched with sadness, for this is the end of their school life. Four of the girls leaving this year have come up from the First Form and four more from the Upper First or Second, so as a form we feel very much part of the school. When we were in the lower forms our one ambition was to finish school so that we could enjoy our summer holidays unspoilt by thoughts of returning to lessons, but now we realize how much Traf. has meant to us and we dread the thought of becoming " old girls " . This year more responsibilities have been given to the Sixth and although the work connected with them has been strenuous, we feel honoured that we were so privileged and hope that this will be but the beginning of self-government in the school. One feature of our work this year was to establish a Sixth Form pin, designed by one of our girls, which we hope will find favour with the future Sixths. Many of us, so far, are undecided as to our future, but we all know that the splendid training we have received at Trafalgar both in lessons and sports will help us, no matter what may be our task! We can never express our appreciation of the interest on the part of the staff. Now as we come to the end of our school career we begin to see how much they have done for us and what a great help they have been in every possible way. In saying farewell we should also like to thank all the girls for the hearty support they have given us this year, and we know that they in their turn will carry on the ideals of Traf., while we will attempt to carry them out into the world and prove ourselves wor- thy of being Trafalgar girls. — VL 60 ANDREW BAILE LIMITED I COAL MERCHANTS 118 Beaver Hall Hill Montreal TEL: UP. 8990-1-2-3 J.
