At that time, as you, a feeble old lady, watch your grand ' children being made to take a Latin pill by " Mother, " your thoughts may turn to your own youth, and you will remember, with a tear or a sigh, the days you spent at Traf. and the years of toil you apparently wasted in acquiring the same knowledge which your grandchild gets by swallowing a pill. But do we come to school merely to learn " Reading, ' Riting and ' Rithmetic? " Does not that child whom you were tempted to envy miss much that is joyous and happy in life? Will a pill bring the same feeling of achievement that a successful translation of " Caesar, " or the correct answer to a Geometry problem brought in the old days? Decidedly not! With this decision you will probably say, " After all. Mother was right when she said, ' your school days are the happiest days of your life ' . " You who read this magazine do not believe that tiresome saying — you are quite convinced that it is wrong — so were we once, yet I think that as we realize that we are leaving schooldays behind, we begin to believe that someday we will know that it is true. As we look back over the past few months there is comparatively little that we would wish otherwise, but there is one thing which we regret and which we hope next year ' s Sixth Form will seriously consider — namely. Hockey ! We have the rink and we have the equipment — yet we have no hockey — why? Other forms of sport, however, have not been neglected this year, for Trafites have ever been enthusiastic Tennis and Basketball players. The Basketball team has played splen- didly throughout the year and we are glad to see the League Cup in the Gym. once more. The school is general (and Botanists in particular) has suffered a great loss in the absence of Miss Hicks who has been away from us since the end of the Fall term owing to a most irnfortunate accident. We have all missed her very much indeed and we hope that her recovery may be as quick as possible. May we take this opportunity of thanking all those who have contributed in any way to the magazine? May we also assure those, whose contributions do not appear on the following pages, that we are none the less grateful to them, since they have not been content to let the magazine f - I be the work of a few, but have made it a representative record of all that we, as Trafites together, have made of igiS ' ig? And now our time has come! It is not without qualms that we see matric. looming ever nearer, and we look with wondering admiration at those who have gone before, in whose footsteps we must follow to the best of our ability. May we accomplish, at least in part, what they have done so splendidly. Think of us sometimes, and know that you are not forgotten. We shall meet again somewhere, sometime, somehow — so, for the moment, let it be no more than " Au revoir.

Jane Seely Lois Malcolm The St. Lawrence Question NE of the greatest problems facing Canada tO ' day is the St. Lawrence Question. And so it V — ' seems that it will not be out of place to discuss briefly the principal points in that connection. The western part of both Canada and the United States is growing steadily. This means that the wheat trade, the trade of the west, is also increasing. What shall Canada do to help her western people? The St. Lawrence River, with its extensions the Great Lakes, is a most important factor in the transportation system of North America. Grain is shipped to it from as far west as the Rockies. The grain comes by train to Fort William or Port Arthur, where it is stored in elevators, cleaned and put on large lake boats specially made for the purpose. It has to change again at Detroit, but when the Welland Canal is complete this change will take place at Prescott, where it is put on smaller boats and brought to Montreal. Here it is again stored in elevators, and from there shipped to all parts of the world. All this adds greatly to the cost of the grain. Competition is arising in other countries, so Canada must do something to lessen the cost of her grain. The only way to do this seems to be to deepen the St. Lawrence. The plan now is to enlarge some of the canals and also to deepen the River from Prescott to Montreal, a distance of about a hundred and twenty miles, to allow ocean going vessels to go as far as Fort William. Some people say this will affect the lake trade, but this is doubtful. The lake boats are specially built for the lakes and the lakes have a navigation of their own. Another factor in the case is that navigation is open about ten days later and opens earlier on the lakes th an on the St. Lawrence. Thus it is probable that the lake boats will bring the grain straight to Montreal, where it will be put on ocean ' going vessels. But grain is not the only thing which passes through the lakes. The other goods are more expensive to ship and therefore the gain will be much greater. There have been many treaties with the United States during the last hundred years which give them the right to the free use of all the canals and waterway systems on the St. Lawrence. The United States will of course have to bear their share of the expense of deepening the river if ( ' anatlii agrtvs. On tin- othcv liaiul ( anada may decide to do it all herself, a very costly proceeding and one which may disturb the good feeling existing between Canada and the United States. If Canada does this the United States will most certainly develop the Albany-Hudson waterway, because she must have an outlet to the sea. New York may then become Montreal ' s rival. This danger would also face her if she decided against the plan altogether or if she postponed it for any long period. Another factor in the case is the tremendous power that can be developed. Shall Canada develop this power? If she does, will there be a market for it? It is most likely that as soon as it is developed a market will be found for it as in the Queenston-Chippawa power development of the Ontario Hydro ' Electric. Another suggestion has been made that Canada should export her surplus power until such time as she has a market for it. The objection to this is that it would be hard to get it back when it was wanted. But apart from material considerations which would decide this question there is also the matter of sentiment. Canada has been in the habit of pointing with pride to the more than a century of peace which has existed between her and her neighbour to the south and the carrying out of this project in common would forge another link in the chain which binds them together. Greta Larminie, Form Upper VI. On Wild Birds Flying South A trailing streak, that twists amid the frown Of dark November ' s clouds, sends back a call That echoes through the leaves, which, like a pall Descending from the sky, come sifting down: Not long ago the trees in gold and brown And all the russet colours of the fall Reposed against the blue, till the first squall Of winter stretched their multi-coloured gown And left them useless, bare, with twisted arms. And now they stand, while past them slips the line Of wild birds, drifting to the South, to find The missing Summer, and the Sun that warms — Though they have passed, in fluttering file so fine, I still hear their farewell upon the wind. Margaret Hill, Form Upper V. Imagine My Embarrassment! By E. M. BARASS A candy sweet was given me. The other day when out at tea; I heard a snicker at my side, And then I very nearly died. Td given candy up for Lent — Imagine my embarrassment ! f 19 I When running for the car one day, My instruments, they lost their way; Then two young men, they made a dash. But, woe is me, their heads did crash! They both walked off with loud lament — ■ Imagine my embarrassment! When reading psalms at prayers one day We all our verses three did say ; Miss Cumming ' s turn came next to read, I went on reading, paying no heed. Poor me, for I quite well had meant — Imagine my embarrassment ! When singing doh, rah, mi, fa, soh. Our voices up and up did go. And at the top came one loud squeak Which really was quite far from weak ; But I ! Quite off the note I went — Imagine my embarrassment ! Barbara Tooke, Form Lower V. Rumour ON THE 13th day of September, in the year of our Lord 1927, I was convicted of the crime of Ignorance, and was taken with escort to the castle of Intelligence, on the hill of Endeavour. There, in surprise, I found many in such trouble as myself. Some rebellious, some happy, and some simply indifferent. Here I remained for many weary weeks, working at tasks set by the warders. I was seated at a hard wooden bench, with a board in front. Our main occupation was what is called " Picking oakum. " We were really trying to achieve great knowledge in every direction: such as being able to know at sight a millimetre from a centipede, how to perceive sulphuretted hydrogen from a quadratic equation. How to make the square root of 9281461 into recurring decimals (see text book, page 228). To know that the answer of Avez-vous Tencre et les bonbons, pour faire des potages? is Nescio, num occidebatis dominum. After many hours of grammatical endeavour, we assemble in a large and gloomy room filled with instruments of torture for those who require grace and beauty. We stand in rows, and go through many contortions, trying to make ourselves look like wooden dolls instead of human beings. Here we get rewards for good deportment and activeness, which adorn the breasts of the successful. When I came to the castle, I was in company with a friend from the outside world who gave me much advice, in forms of warnings, threatenings, and prophecy. Of these I took no notice. But one day I was given something, which I received with joy : a bird, a love, a darling " Little Rumour, " who told me I was to join my comrades in the outside world, one month earlier than I thought. It chirped and comforted me daily, and made me so happy I became reckless, and when asked, " Who was Julius Caesar? " I answered eagerly, " The first governor of this castle! " Much to my sorrow this was not the answer required, and I was given a detention for my pains. But sorrow was not long with me, as I still held my rumour to my heart, and he whispered to me " Freedom. " Now though I seem small, and am thought of a retiring nature, underneath I am as brave as a lion and as hungry as a wolf. When we heard that the governor of the castle had arrived, all the others fell on their knees, but boldly I stood up and, in a voice of thunder, I asked when we were to go again into the outside world. The answer came " The 14th, " my expectations rose, full height, but tlu- next moment my hopes fell with a crash: the next word was June, not May! When I regained my consciousness, my bird, my love, my Little Rumour, was no more. Amy Archibald, Form IIIb. Impressions of New York FAR above Broadway the Paramount building rears its head — modern, striking, unusual, ultra- American, symbolizing the fabulous wealth of the nation — but at its feet stand the unemployed. It is sad to think of those who have come eager and hopeful from lands across the sea to the " City of the Golden Pavements, " only to find those pavements quite as drab as the ones they have left behind, and perhaps a little harder, morally if not physically. However, one must not be a pessimist, and those who have got jobs may not be particularly happy either ! The streets of New York are a never-ending source of interest for those who like to study people. Here one may see old, young, rich, poor, handsome, haggard, well dressed, meanly dressed, all types, from every walk of life, crowding along side by side. Purposeful people hurry about their business, aimless people just " follow the crowd, " cynics watching the world go on to perdition, romantic people with the awful " spell of the city " upon them, and disillusioned people walk through these streets together. The most interesting street of all is Broadway. For here it seems that the very essence of the city ' s being is to be found. In the daytime Broadway is just a busy street, a little wider than most, running diagonally across the city. But at night! New York ' s life blood pulses up and down that mighty artery all night long — rushing, noise, lights, and people, people, people just " going " with this day ' s madness, the " go fever, " driving them madly on. Some of these people have a gift from the gods. They can live for the moment. Though they know that tomorrow lies ahead, and that life will be waiting for them, grim and inexorable, in the cold gray dawn of another day, yet for now they can forget, and be happy while they may. Life is a chance in New York, a game, which some may win but many lose. For some it is a glorious battle, for others a bitter struggle. There are people whose life is a reckless fight and they thrive on the very hazard. Some love this city with all the ardour of American patriotism. Others (shrewder) say that the city gives no man more than a thrill, and " if you ' re not up and doing, you ' re down, and being done. " With these, too, we find courage, faith, hope, and far down underneath even a little charity. Somehow, on Broadway, every night and all night long, these conflicting opinions are welded together into an indefinable " something " — the " spell of the city " perhaps. The Bronx Park was cool and still, under the setting sun. Far above a lonely crow cawed in the blue-gray smoke-flecked sky. A light wind ran across the ponds with a shivering sigh, and died in the calm of the coming night. Here the sleep time had come, and the end of another day, but beyond the walls the first restless throb of the hectic night had begun to fret, and the " Voice of the City " rose high above the peace of the garden. Here, as in an oasis of quietness, we listened to that wonderful roar of human activity. Some- times we tried to distinguish the individual sounds, sometimes to blend them all together into a single melody. The steady beat of pickaxes, wielded by swarthy representatives of half a dozen different nations, was the rhythm of that colossal song. We heard jarring steam whistles, starting the long night shift for men at drills and excavators, traffic whistles, screeching brakes, auto horns, taxi calls, the rumbling of elevators and street cars, all mingled together to form a very chaos of sound. We could not pick it out, but we knew that the deafening roar of the subway was helping to swell that mighty voice. A fire reel clanged by, but nobody noticed that more than the other sounds. Once the merry whistle of a boy, but he was very young and had not yet learned that Life and Death were gambling — for him. The " Voice of the City " is never still. It goes on and on with a strange wild song, weirdly fascinating to man, lifting, degrading, inspiring, but changing in some way or other, all who come under its magic spell — and the " Spell of the City " is contrast. Anne Byers, Form Upper VI. Reflections (With apologies to William Shakespeare) To-morrow and tcmorrow and to-morrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last hour of our school career, And all our yester-years have lighted girls Beyond matriculation. The time is short: School ' s but a preparation, a brief test. Through which we strive or fret our way to the Great tasks of life which wait us at the end; It is a pebbled shore, with tiny troubles Scattered o ' er the strand, but shelves into The stormy sea of life, which all must weather. We each have our appointed work to do In school and in our later life, and by This work we either make our mark Indelible upon the sands of time. Or else erase our birthright. Be it so! Whatever we become in after years. We owe to our old school a lasting thanks. For all the happy days, the knowledge gained. And all the friends we found at dear old Traf. Alice Smith ' Johannsen, Form Upper V. First Girl — " Oh! but that was crazy; why didn ' t he jump in the Seine and be done with it? " Second Girl — ' ' Because that would have been in Seine " (sane). Lines to a Desk (With apologies to Keats) I have heard that on a day Kay Wood ' s desk chair broke away; Nobody knew why, until A very silly Trafite ' s quill To the Traf. Mag gave the story. Said she saw it in its glory, Then beheld a tiny screw Fall away, whence no one knew. And lo! the chair with sickening noise Carried with it all Kay ' s poise. O you Trafites passed and gone, In what Elysium have you known A downy couch - come now, beware— Cyhoicer than a Traf. desk chair? Marjorii ' . Lynch, Form Upper VI. Our Opportunities GIRLS at our age are, as Longfellow says, " Standing with reluctant feet, where the brook and river meet " ; and the most important question now is, " What are we girls going to do? " Up to about twentyfive years ago women seldom left the home to earn a living. In the Victorian era they looked askance at any women who dared to go into business, be a doctor or a nurse. It was then considered the thing to be a little delicate. They were the clinging vines, and the men were supposed to be their sheltering oaks. Whether the oak got tired of being clung to, or the vines got tired of clinging, we do not know; we only know that " the old order changeth, giving place to new, " and women now cling no longer, but stand on their own feet, and enter almost every field that formerly was monopolized by man alone. Florence Nightingale opened the field of nursing for women. It is one of the noblest profes- sions : — " For lo! in human hearts unseen The Healer dwelleth still, And they who make His temples clean. They best subserve His will. " The Business field has also thrown open its doors to women. In New York one woman has opened three of the largest restaurants in that city; two of the foremost American magazines have women as managing editors; one of the newest hotels soon to go up in New York is to have a managing directress; and in our own city of Montreal one of the largest chain of restaurants has a woman as a buyer. In the Literary field women are forging ahead also. The most successful of all plays in New York ' s history, " Abie ' s Irish Rose, " was written by a woman. Besides this, we have one Federal M.P. in the House of Commons who is a woman. Miss Agnes Macphail. Of course there are some things men do better than women; they can play Rugby better, and can whistle through their teeth ! My father says that undoubtedly women are smarter than men . He has been married nineteen years, and has heard that every day, so it must be so! But whether that is so or not, what we must realize is that the world needs men and women who do things well. For: — " The gods make room upon the hills sublime, Only for those who have the will to climb. " Most of our opportunities come to us disguised as hard work. Abraham Lincoln, when he was a young man, bought an old barrel from a passing peddler, and in it he found some old law books, which he spent all his spare time in studying and reading. Later in his life this very studying and reading helped him to win a very difficult case in court — he was prepared when his opportunity came. In an old Greek city, there was a curious statue which has long since disappeared, but a story about it has come down to us. It is in the form of a dialogue: — " What is they name, O statue? " " I am called Opportunity. " " Why art thou standing on thy toes? " " To show that I stay but a moment. " " Why hast thou wings on thy feet? " " To show how quickly I pass by. " " But why is thy hair so long on thy forehead? " " That men may seize me when they meet me. " " Why is thy head so bald behind? " " To show that when I have once passed I cannot be caught. " It rests entirely with ourselves; whether we will develop the talents that were given to us, or let them remain dormant: — " You are the girl who makes up your mind, Whether you ' ll lead or will linger behind. Whether you ' ll try for the goal that ' s afar, Or be contented to stay where you are. Take it or leave it. Here ' s something to do. Just think it over — it ' s all up to you. " Helen Hendery, Form Upper VI. The Masculine Point of View Scene: The Nursery. (Little boy and girl are both on the rocking horsej. Little Boy — " One of us will have to get off so that I can have more room. " Very stout lady (to social service worker who has just taught her to do the " Lazy-daisy " stitch) : " Excuse me, ma ' am, but is it all right if I skip from flower to flower? " " Do you like my dress? " " Is it too short, or are you too far in? " Movietone THE newest modern invention is Movietone. The screen, heretofore silent, now breaks into speech whether you like it or not. This innovation may be disliked, but it cannot be dis ' regarded, for it will affect moving pictures in many ways. One thing it will change is the actors. We shall soon be missing some of the " old familiar faces " whose beauty could not triumph over an atrocious accent. For now the " voice ' s the thing. " The foreign actors who once shone brilliantly will return home, unless they can learn to speak perfect English in six months, or some such ridiculously short time. Perhaps this weeding out of actors is a good thing. Legitimate actors, or those who have been on the stage at some time in their career, have the best chance; acting on the stage has always been superior to the acting in the movies — a pretty face, in the movies, goes far towards stardom. And then, the stage actors have trained voices — and " the greatest asset of a legitimate actor is his voice. " What will talkies bring us? Firstly, they will bring a truer form of the drama. Spoken lines will take the place of sub-titles. Thus plays which have been movie-ized will retain more of the original. But then dialogue is not as interesting to hear in the movies as on the stage, and it also slows up the action considerably. There are many eminent dramatists and dramatic critics who croak, " Talking pictures are ruining the theatre " - -and so on. They are too impatient, for it is still too early to judge the talkies. Every new one is an improvement on the last. They may be only a passing fancy, or they may take the place of silent pictures altogether. Talkies can never approach the stage plays, but they are improving. Talking pictures have not yet proved their worth, and there is still a variety of opinion con- cerning them. Some people are enthusiastic about them; others think they are " a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. " Betty Stewart, Form Upper V. ! M 1 The Mission Box The mission box, both old and worn, That lies in IVb ' s room, Can tell a tale of things forlorn, A tale of woe and gloom. " When I was new and bright, " it said, " I lived with two small boys. Much money then to me was paid. And I lived among their toys. " I lived with them for many years. And with them oft did play, Until one day, despite my tears. They threw me right away. " I had not long lain all alone In the cellar on a shelf. Before their sister, with a moan. Came and took me for herself. " She had been made a Mission Rep. (Whatever that may be), She left me while she did her prep., Then turned and said to me, " ' You are a shabby box, I know, But I guess you ' ll do all right. For I know iVe not a cent to blow On a new one, nice and bright ' . " 1 5 1 ' ' She took me with her to her school, And put me m a drawer, And soon again I was half ' full Of money less or more.

The Battle of Thermopylae The mighty Persian host advanced. Some million men there were. They meant to take the whole of Greece And thus create a stir. But at Thermopylae they met Three hundred Spartans brave. Who did not mean to let them pass. And to them trouble gave. Their leader was Leonidas, A valiant man and true; He said to them, " We do or die, We must not let them through! " The Persians then they scoffed and said, " The sun you will not see. Because of all the arrows Before which you will flee. " But the Spartans bravely answered. While hacking at the foe, " In the shade well therefore fight, And to you defiance throw! " And though the Persians fought all day. The pass they could not take. Until a traitor showed them how The Spartan line to break. He led them round another way And when the day was done, The Spartans had made their last stand For not a man did run. And now although they Ve dead and gone And though their time is past, Yet through their daring bravery Their memory will last. Margot Seely, Form IVu. Nicknames of Famous Regiments SCHOOL and army life have many things in common, and, just as the popular fellow always has his nickname, so the good regiment is usually known by a title not to be found m any official publications. Regimental nicknames are many and varied, but almost of all them owe their origin to some interesting episode in the history of the particular unit. Mention the " Cherry Pickers " to a soldier, and he will know at once that you are talking of the nth Hussars, though he probably will not remember that the soubriquet dates from the days of the Peninsular War, when a detachment of the regiment was captured in a fruit garden. The Royal Scots boast the distinction of being the senior line regiment in the British Army. Their regimental records go back for nearly four hundred years, and the army knows them by the affectionate title of " Pontius Pilate ' s Bodyguard. " The Queen ' s Royal West Surrey Regiment has as irs badge the crest of the house of Bragan2;a, the Paschal Lamb. The regiment served under the famous Colonel Percey Kirke, both at Tangier and during the suppression of the rebellion under Monmouth in 1682 . The name of Percey Kirke was known throughout the West, for his vigorous and merciless methods, and the Queen ' s, in sly allusion to their badge and their former commander became known as " Kirke ' s Lambs. " Cleanliness and smartness are the keynotes of a soldier ' s life, and yet one regiment has every reason to be proud of its name, " The Dirty Half Hundred. " This apparently uncomplimentary title is bestowed on the Queen ' s Own Royal West Kent Regiment, which as the 50th Foot, fought with great distinction at Vimiera. Their tunics at that time had black facings, and it is recorded that the faces of the soldiers were so begrimed with powder, that they were as black as the collars and cuffs of their uniforms. A better known title is that of the Middlesex Regiment, " The Diehards. " Such stubborn valour did this regiment display at Albuera that after the battle only one officer and 168 other ranks survived out of a strength of over 600. Their commanding officer, Colonel Inglis, even in the thick of the battle, rallied his men with the cry, " Die hard, men, die hard! " and to this day the whole army commemorates their bravery by the simple tribute of those two words. Phyllis Green, Form IVa. Speedometer Thrills EARLY in the spring the call of the road begins to ring in the ears of motorists. Anyone who possesses a vehicle with four wheels and a motor — of sorts, may be included in the fraternity. The urge will not be quieted until with pride the owner discovers a road where he has the dis ' tinction of being the first one of the season to sink his car to the hubs in mud. There is something really fine in being the first to traverse some remote country road. It is at such times one has a fellow feeling for Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo, and other distinguished brethren of the profession. As the season advances, and the roads become smooth and hard, eager motorists penetrate every secluded lane, and one requires some new thrill to replace the joy of pioneering. This is found, in speed. Perhaps it begins with a long stretch of smooth, straight road, the owner ' s hand is drawn to the accelerator and the speedometer registers thirty. This is but a pleasant speed, yet it leads to worse; having once felt the lure of speed the seed of evil is planted. Again, the owner indulges in the love of speed, perhaps this time the speedometer ffickers over forty and it seems no harm would come if forty ' five were touched. These are dangerous thoughts and the owner realizes it. Severely he tries to repress them and decides to break the speed limit no longer. Alas, for the good intention of men, temptation proves too strong! Behind him the horn of a Packard Roadster sings contempt. The pride of the owner is stung. Move f 7 I over and let that monster by? Not a bit of it ! The process known as " j ivin her gas " is accom ' plished and the car bounds ahead. The needle flickers fortyfive, fortyseven, fifty, and mounting steadily. A glow comes from the owner ' s heart to be quelled only too quickly. The merxacing put of a motor cycle can be heard behind. With a sick feeling the owner slows the car and faces the begoggled gentleman who politely requests to see the licence. Then he makes impressive notes in a black book and enquires the address of the luckless one. After noting this he departs, leaving a trail of woe. Starting to recover from the daze the owner looks about him. Where, O where, is the Packard Roadster? Surely it too will be fined; deriving some comfort from the thought the owner again looked about him. It is not there. The cruel truth dawns, the Packard must have turned up the road to the golf-course two miles back. And he had got himself fined for speeding when The last horrible truth was too much for the developing " Speed Fiend. " A firm resolve was made and kept ever to be a law abiding citizen. In the chastened owner who presented himself in due time at court all signs of the " Speed Fiend " had vanished. Joyce McKee, Form IVa. A Scotsman wished to fly across the Channel without paying the required fare. An aviator agreed to take him, with his wife and son free of charge, if he would keep absolute silence all the way. At the end of the trip the aviator congratulated the Scotsman on his silence. He replied, " Thanks, but it was very hard, especially when my wife and son fell out. " After a lesson on combustion, in which the girls were told that decomposition in plants and animals gives the same products as burning, one bright Third Former wrote: — " When people die, some are cremated: others are buried, but they burn just the same. " Moonlight I watch the sunset fade upon the snow, I see the pearl of evening in the skies, I wait the first bright star, and then I know That moonlight floods the Vale of Paradise. Rising clear and full above the crag. To sail in starry splendour through the night. The moon looks down, and on a silvVy dale She sheds her beams of soft, ethereal light. The icicles upon the cliff become A gleaming robe of white and silver lace. And crystal pendants, hung on chains of pearl, Peep through the misty snow that veils her face. With such a vision in my mind, I dream. When, citybound, my daily cares arise. And to my tired mind there comes a peace — ■ Like moonlight in the Vale of Paradise. Alice F.

There is something fascinating in the very name; they seem to bring the mysterious, scented East very near. Their color is not that of the West; it is richer far, for have they not the Art of untold years? The rich shades blend into each other and change as the light touches them with bewitching charm. What history do they relate with their strange symbols? Do they tell of the age-old civiliza- tions from whence they originated? It is not known. There are some who read the bald story, but surely no Western tongue can reveal all the Oriental tale. One of the chief delights of an Oriental Rug is the luxurious suppleness. That soft flexibility brings a vivid picture of the patient workers toiling at their knotted strands. What great Masters the West would have proclaimed them, had they been of her race, yet in the Eastern World they lived and died — unknown — perhaps bequeathing their strange souls to the rugs they wrought so well. Though all these rugs are called Oriental, there are many different kinds. The Mongolian Rugs have a beauty distinctive from the other types; a few simple sprays on a plain background. But what centuries of knowledge gave each minute detail its perfection ! The Iran and Lilihan Rugs are far more intensely Eastern than the Mongolian. They seem to pulse with the life and intrigue of the East. The rich, throbbing colours have a subtleness that is very foreign. It is from an ancient civilization that the secret of the Oriental Rugs came. Always they will hold the fascination of the unknown for the Western World. Joyce McKee, Form IVa. Memories Behind me now those happy years I spent. Those glorious months of careless winter play. When books and skiis were mingled in a day Of healthy fun. How little it all meant Just at that time ! And yet — and yet, how much ! Those mountain peaks, how far away they seem, Those paths of sparkling white, that sunset gleam, Those lakes and trees, the moon ' s soft silver touch; I loved them all. God grant I come again To wander down those gleaming aisles of snow. When all the world is bathed in rainbow light, And slowly, as I pass the winding glen, To see the mountains linger in the glow — • Then softly fade into the starry night. Alice E. Smith- Johannsen, Form Upper V. Castles in the Air WHAT fascinating things they are, our castles m the air! Built of the shining stones of our fancies and desires, they are more beautiful to us than the sturdy towers of reality. For these dazzling structures are built for us alone. No one else may enter there except with our permission. Through their vast halls we may wander at leisure, dreaming of the unknown days ![ 29 } to come. Perhaps they hold more charm for us because they are so far away and shadowy, and things we dream of are given a certain glamour by that touch of dimness and uncertainty. They are fragile things, the castles we build on clouds. A touch will send them tumbling about our ears leaving us to contemplate a disordered heap of stones which once composed a fairy palace fit for Queen Mab herself. But lo, a dream house, fairer than the last, has sprung up as if by magic! Whence did it come? Who knows? Its foundations may he laid by the merest trifle, which passes unnoticed by those around us. It may be only a fluffy cloud, chasing its fellows across the summer sky, or perhaps the lilt of the song-bird at twilight which sends a fairy fancy flitting across our thoughts commanding us to build for it a home whose turrets shall reach to the very skies, so high are our aspirations. Betty Hurry, Form Upper V. " Why is an after ' dinner speech hke a wheel? " " Because the longer the spoke, the greater the tire. " The Influence of the Sagas upon Scandinavian Life and Thought FROM time immemorial, poetry has been a natural means of expression of primitive people; it has been one method of recording the history of their achievements, the legends and deeds of their forefathers. Poetry is the next rung on the ladder of recorded history above picture ' writing, and its degree of excellence is a measure of the civilization of its composers. In Germany, the ancient poets found voice in the " Nibelungenlied, " while the Scandinavian myths were set forth in the Sagas and Eddas. Saga in Norwegian means saying or story; the exact meaning of the word Edda is unknown, but, as many of the poems in the Eddas are of Icelandic origin, it is thought to mean the " Book of Oddi, " a small town in southern Iceland. During the Middle Ages, the minstrels were most welcome at the entertainments in the courts of the kings and nobles, and it was on such occasions that the Eddas were sung. As one historian says, " The poet was at once the chronicler, entertainer, musician, and lyric artist, " and It is to him that we owe a record of the happenings of his time. " He lifted up his voice in exultation after victory, mourned the dead, lamented misfortune, and satirized the enemies of his patrons. " The poems of the Eddas, which, fortunately, have been preserved in their original pagan form, were written during the general period of from 900 to 1050 A.D., previous to the introduction of Christianity into northern Scandinavia. For this reason, they are of more present day interest than the Danish ' ' Beowulf, " which the early Anglo ' Saxons somewhat altered and Christianized. The Eddas were not the compositions of any one man or group of men; they were, rather, the out- pourings of the minds and imaginations of hundreds of people who lived far back in the days of which we have no other record, and the tales and beliefs which form their foundation have been called by some the " Bible " of the old Norse pagans. These poems and Sagas do much to reflect the life of the people whose work they were. The massive mountains of Scandinavia, the turbulent rivers and great rocky crags give one an impression of the omnipotence of a Supreme Power, and make one feel the insignificance of man. It is for these reasons, perhaps, that Norwegian literature has an underlying feeling of melancholy, and, not unlike Greek drama, is intended to demonstrate the remorseless power of Destiny over man. The general view of things is inclined to be somewhat gloomy and depressed, as is a great deal of the modern work of Ibsen, Gunnarsson and others, and there can be little doubt but that " the creation story of the ' Poetic Edda ' has lent its sombre colouring to Norse life and thought. " On the other hand, in some of the " Lays of the Gods " there is a sprinkling of a jolly humour, an attribute almost entirely lacking in the greater part of Germanic poetry. On the whole, however, there is something so satisfying and uplifting, so thoroughly Scan- dinavian about these ancient stories, that it may be truthfully said, " The Sagas and Eddas were the epitome of the life of the people, and offer the best indication of their character and customs. " Alice E. Smith-Johannsen, Form Upper V. I 30 1 Pirates WeVe pirates all, my merry men, So let us now set sail : And. well take a drink in our pirates ' den And tell many a joke and tale.

I I Historical Words A LANGUAGE is never complete; it may have had its origin in the remote centuries; but new words are constantly being added to it. With the advance of the Arts and Sciences comes a need for new names, and these names may be coined from the ancient Latin and Greek tongues or perhaps taken from the names of men and women associated with them. Greece, the most ancient civilisation in Europe, has laid a basis for many of our old words and phrases in its beautiful mythology and legend. The satyr Pan, the god of nature, gave us the word ' panic, ' or universal fear; from Paean, another name for Apollo, the sun-god, we derived the name ' peony, ' a bright, not uncommon flower; and to his son Phaethon, who was once permitted to drive the sun chariot across the sky, we owe the word ' phaeton, ' a modern vehicle. Atlas, a Homeric deity in charge of the pillars of heaven, has lent his name to the great Atlantic Ocean and to our common, geographical map ' books. From Hercules, a legendary giant of great physical powers, we obtained the word ' herculean, ' meaning of exceptional strength. The phrase ' to meet one ' s nemesis ' contains reference to Nemesis, the Greek goddess of righteous vengeance. Tantalus is represented in Greek mythology as being placed in the centre of a pool, the water of which forever eludes his eager lips, and having over his head a bunch of luscious grapes which ever swing from his grasping hands, and from his name comes our verb ' to tantalise. ' ' Argosy ' was taken from the name of the ship Argos, in which Jason and his companions sailed away on their search for the Golden Fleece. Students of the English language point out that the majority of our words are of Latin deriva- tion. We have coined many names from Roman history, both legendary and authentic. To ' Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, we owe the words ' volcano ' and ' volcanic ' ' Jovial, ' of a happy disposition, is a term taken from the old astrology, for one born under the influence of the star Jove was prom- ised a merry life. The name of the month March was taken from Mars, the Roman god of war; and from Mercury, the messenger of the gods, who wore wings on his feet, we obtained ' mer- curial, ' of a quick-spirited temperament, and ' mercury, ' another name for quicksilver. ' Fauna, ' which is the collective name for all the animals of a country, has been taken from Faunus, a Roman god of the woods and plains. Similarly, the collective noun ' flora ' bears reference to Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. The name of Pantaleone, the patron saint of Venice, was transferred to a garment which the ' Venetians commonly affected, and in our language appears as ' pantaloons. ' The two-faced Roman god, Janus, gave his name to the month of January in which we can look ' before and after. ' Julius Caesar, the great Roman statesman and general, had the month of July named after him, as he was born in that month. August was so named in honor of Augustus Caesar, the first Roman Emperor. Following the history of the English language to a more recent period, we have many words of West European derivation. A minister of finance in the French Government, M. de Silhouette, saw his name transferred by the public to an empty and cheap outline portrait in punishment for his mistakes. The guillotine, a beheading instrument used during the French Revolution, was called after its inventor, Dr. Guillotin. A ' martinet, ' a severe disciplinarian, is taken from General Martinet, a strict commander in the reign of Louis XIV. The ' dahlia ' is named after a Swede, Dahl, who first cultivated it in Europe; and Fuchs, a German botanist, is remembered in the ' fuchsia. ' ' Parrot ' is taken from the French ' Pierrot, ' a diminutive of Pierre and means actually ' little Peter, ' or Peterkin. ' Bluchers, ' square-toed boots, are called after General Blucher, and ' Wellingtons, ' or high boots, bear the name of the Duke of Wellington. A ' Vandyck, ' a short, pointed beard, comes from the name of the great artist, who commonly afi ected such a beard. One of the Lord Derbys gave his name to the ' derby hat ' or bowler of nowadays. Sir Robert Peel, a Victorian statesman, instituted policemen, who were formerly called ' bobbies ' or ' peelers, ' after their founder. Many of the great Victorian men lent their names to articles of clothing, as a ' Gladstone bag ' or popular features of that age. ' Daguerrotype ' is a variation of the name of its inventor. Count de Guerr. ' Broughams ' bear the surname of their chief patronizer. Dr. Brougham. A ' Prince Albert ' is a frock coat, named after Victoria ' s Consort. ' Boycott, ' a modern word meaning to shun absolutely, was taken from Captain Boycott, an Irishman, who was ' sent to Coventry ' by order of the Irish Land League. Our word ' cravat ' comes from the Croats of Croatia, who supplied to Austria an army corps in which f 33 3 the soldiery wore long and large neckties. A Mr. Saxe invented the ' saxophone ' our modern musical (?) instrument. A ' marconigram, ' or wireless telegraph, is coined from the name Marconi, the discoverer of sound waves. These are but a few out of innumerable examples, and attached to many such words are interest ' ing stories that well reward the trouble taken in looking them up. Janet Cameron, Form Upper V. Things I like to hear the rain m spring, And listen to the robins sing. To tramp afoot is real joy — I almost wish I were a boy. I don ' t know quite exactly how, But still I like to milk a cow.

But when the Winter comes, I ' m glad; I don ' t see how folks can be sad. When Winter ' s gone, I ' m glad to greet The smell of Spring (it is so sweet).

I 35 1 A few years later I was enjoying the circus at Olympia in London, when a troop of perform ' ing elephants came in. One of these elephants fixed his eyes on me in a glassy stare, and without a word of warning lifted me with his trunk from the shilling seat where I was sitting (owing to hard times) into a half ' guinea one.

The Brave Little Swiss Boy Long, long ago the Swiss people used to have a lot of trouble to keep from their mighty neigh ' hours, the Austrians. It was a beautiful night, everything was still. The stars were shining over the Lake of Lucerne and the mountains around it. A little Swiss boy had come to the lakeshore to get some water for his mother. Suddenly he stopped and listened, and heard the sound of oars. I37l Hiding behind a tree, he saw them enter the cave. Then he looked back on the lake and saw more men get out of boats and enter the cave. When he was sure they were all in, he crept near (knowing something was going on) and heard them planning a war with the Swiss people. Suddenly he fell over a root and revealed his presence to the men. They were going to put the boy to death, but pitied his youth, and let him go after making him swear he would not tell a living soul what he had seen and heard. The poor lad went hom,e wondering what to do, for he felt it was his duty to tell his people what he had heard. He went right to Lucerne, and seeing a light in an inn he stepped inside, and heard some Swiss men talking. Looking around the room, he saw a tiled stove in a corner and, running to it, he shouted, " Mr. Oven, listen to what I have seen and heard, " and he told his story. The men heard, and the country was saved. The boy did not break his oath, because he had promised to tell no living soul his experience with the Austrians. J.

I An Autobiography of a Telephone HELLO everybody! I suppose you wonder why I am so happy. It is because I am to be sent to Trafalgar Institute soon. I am so pleased because it is so hot in this Bell Telephone office and I am also always dusty. Oh joy ! here come two men to take me off the shelf and carry me out of the building. Now they are putting me in the car. This is great fun, much better than living in a stuffy old office. Now we are climbing up a hill. I feel a little nervous as I heard the driver say, " This Simpson St. hill is one of the steepest in Montreal. ' ' Now we are at the top and are stopping. Oh! that man nearly pulled my arm out. Why can ' t he be more careful. So, this is Trafalgar Institute, my new home. It is a large building surrounded by spreading trees where birds and bees abound in pro ' fusion. Oh! why can ' t they let me stay in this garden? but no, they are carrying me into the school. Now, what an earth are they doing to me? Oh! I see. They are putting me up against a wall. Some people have no consideration for telephones. Now, thank goodness, that is over. What a great number of girls there are in this school. I hope they will not try to test me out. I am sure they are all nice girls : still, they might be a little hard with my arm, and sometimes after a hard bang I suffer terribly Well, it is six months since I came here and it has been six months of happiness for me. The girls are not allowed to use me, and my mistress and het assistants are very kind to me. We have had a busy day and I am very sleepy. What is the matter? Why! its three o ' clock and someone just woke me up. " Hello! Hello! Hello! Oh, you have the wrong number, " said a mistress. My poor arm! What a bang it got. I am angry and am going to show it. It is morning now and one of the mistresses comes into my room. " Hello, hello, what is the matter with this phone? " I pay no attention to her as I am still angry. Now, what do you think, two men have come from The Bell Telephone Co. Mercy! my arm is on the table, and the rest of me in other parts of the room. Am I ruined? No, they are putting me together again, and my cranky disposition is cured forever. Lola Byrd, Form II.

A little bird is singing In a lilac bush near ' by, And the blue ' grey sea is coloured By the sunset ' tinted sky. Soon the little stars peep out From behind a veil of blue, Then the moon begins to shine. And starts her night anew. When the sun has sunk away. Far down to the west, The little birds all cease to sing And Nature goes to rest. MiMi Languedoc, Form Upper II. School Chronicle 1928— JUNE isT GYM. COMPETITION. Senior — Form Upper V.

I46I " Songs of the Hebrides " ON THURSDAY, October 25th, the girls of Trafalgar had the pleasure of hearing Miss Thomp ' son sing the Songs of the Hebrides. First, Miss Thompson told us something of the life and people of those lonely isles which she pointed out to us on a map. Thus we were better able to understand the songs and enter into their spirit. The selections ranged from sad, sweet songs, expressing all the loneliness of the shepherds of the Hebrides, to the happy rollicking chants sung by the people when they met to quilt or shrink the home-made woollen goods. Time after time Miss Thompson was called upon to repeat her songs, and she very kindly did so; often singing a verse in Gaelic then repeating it in English. At times the audience were invited to join in the choruses, but our voices were very feeble compared to the clear and beautiful one of our leader. Upon the request of some of the seniors Miss Thompson sang " The Garden Song, " which had won great admiration upon her previous visit to our school. We all very greatly appreciated the pleasant afternoon spent in hearing Miss Thompson and her accompanist. Miss Buchanan, and hope that they will soon visit Canada once more. Beatrice E. M. Harvey, Form Upper VI. The Lower VI Form Masquerade ON FRIDAY, October 26th, the gym. was the scene of a most delightful Hallowe ' en Masquerade given by Miss Hicks and the Lower VI Form. The boarders and members of the Upper VI and V Forms were present and everyone enjoyed themselves to the full. The hall was decorated in orange and black, with skeletons, pumpkins and black cars creating a weird, ghostly and truly " Hallowe ' enish " atmosphere. When all the guests had assembled and when each one had admired everyone else ' s costume, the lights were turned out and a long line of " ghosts " and " skeletons " filed across the platform with much clanking of chains. We were asked to identify and write down the names of each figure — a practically impossible matter. A prize was given to Mary Cross for the most complete list of names. After this the lights were turned on once more and we marched around in " twos " to be inspected. We all sympathised with the judges in their task of awarding the prizes, for we had seldom seen such attractive or such original costumes. Prizes were won by Barbara Glassco, a most attractive bride; Nancy Archibald, as a thirteenth century lady; and Betty Douglas as a flower garden. Many other costumes were highly commended, either for their beauty or for originality. Dancing followed the prizc ' giving, and later in the evening delicious refresh ' ments were served by the " ghosts " and " skeletons, " looking decidedly less formidable without their masks and head-dresses. The evening was a great success and we were very grateful to Miss Hicks and the Lower VI for going to so much trouble for our entertainment. Marjorie Lynch, Form Upper VI. Mrs. Brown ' s Lecture AN ILLUSTRATED LECTURE was given by Mrs. Eric Brown of Ottawa on Wednesday, . V January i6th. Her subject was " Canadian Art " — a subject full of interest to all Canadians — and she gave a brief sketch of art in Canada from the time of the Indians right through the centuries to the present day. Long before the White Man ever came to Canada the Indian was executing his crude drawings and trying in his simple way to make everything beautiful around him. However odd his paintings t47l and figures may appear to us, he had the secret of making things well balanced ; and one slide showed a house, the whole front of which was decorated by one enormous whale. When thinking of Indian art one thinks instinctively of the weird totem poles which are characteristic of every Indian village. These poles were once thought to have a religious significance, but that is not so. When the head of the family died, the pole was bought and the whole history of that particular family carved upon it. Then the following winter great feasts were held to celebrate the setting up of the pole before the wigwam. Mrs. Brown then passed to the French Canadian school. After commenting on the dignity and simplicity of French architecture, she showed us two pictures, " The Venetian Bather " and " Boats in Harbour, " both painted by Canadian artists — Peel and Barnseley. Each of these men, however, had painted a great deal in Paris and as a result both pictures were more French than truly Canadian. As time went on, artists began more and more to search for the particular qualities which were characteristic of their own country, so that today Canadian art is really a type in itself. Maurice Cullen is a typical Canadian painter who has gained numerous admirers in his years of work. " March, " shown to us by Mrs. Brown, represent s a winter scene, as does " Snow " by Lawrn Harris, another native of Canada. One more typically Canadian artist was mentioned — Tom Thomson. All his life he was in love with the Canadian wilds and went there constantly, making numerous sketches in his own original manner merely to amuse himself. His friends, how ' ever, realizing his talent, practically forced him to make large paintings which soon became very popular because of their freshness and sincerity. Mrs. Brown concluded her lecture with three paintings of a much earlier period which the National Gallery of Ottawa has only acquired recently and of which they are very proud. Kathryn Wood, Form Upper VI. The Poetry of Life [In January, Mr. Davison, one of the younger English poets, gave us a lecture on Poetry. The following are some of the thoughts suggested by his address.] " COMPOSITIONS, usually in verse, marked by beauty of thought and language. " That is the definition of Poetry in the dictionary. Yet how little it expresses the real meaning of poetry! Still, to many people, poetry is just what is contained in that definition, and nothing more, nothing deeper. Few realize that the thought behind the poem, the inspiration that caused it to be written, is the true poetry, the poetry of life. When one stops to think, it is amazing how much more significance the commonplace things of Hfe have when the poetry in them is brought out. The weird singing of the wind, the rhythmical, sonorous, beat of waves, the soft patter of rain-drops, are all so infinitely more beautiful, more full of real poetry, than any poem about them could possibly be. Then the stiller things, such as trees, a beautiful view, or a quiet night, must have inspired many poets, from time immemorial, to the greatest efforts. One sees immediately the inadeq uacy of the definition of poetry, and yet how could one define it? It is something intangible, something that has been from the beginning of time. Long before writing began the primitive man must surely have realized it, and have been lifted out of the common path, into something higher, as we are today. Then, I do not think that people realize the poetry in the scenes and occupations of everyday life. Take, for instance, a beautiful building. People say, " What a lovely thing! " Yet how few of them realize that the architect who designed it must have been inspired, and how the man with true poetry in his soul must regard it as an inspiration to higher things. Many men have been turned from crime by the voice, or even the sight, of a little child. Was it because the child was some particular child? No! It was because of the thoughts, the poetry, that came into the man ' s heart because of the sight of the child. I4«I In comparing his discoveries with what there was yet to be discovered, Sir Isaac Newton wrote, " I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and directing myself now and then in finding a smoother pebble than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. " I think this simile could be used to compare the poetry in books with the whole poetry of life, so small is the one compared to the other. The good poetry that is written in books, is probably for many people, the one connection between their own lives and the true poetry of life, and yet I do not see how one could understand the poetry one reads, unless one has felt that which the poet is endeavouring to express, and has longed to express it oneself. The poetry of life cannot be defined or expressed, it can only be felt, and perhaps realised in some forms. It seems to me that the whole universe, with the everlasting mingling of time and space, and the everlasting movement which is never blocked, a thing beyond human conception, contains in its greatest sense the poetry of life. Phyllis Durant, Form Upper V. Mr. Odell ' s Lecture on Spitzbergen SPITZBERGEN, " we all knew this fascinating name, and had always wanted to hear more about it. But — nobody was quite sure what it was. Some said a Cathedral town in Europe, while others insisted that it was a German colony in Africa. We were somewhat surprised then, when on February nth, our old friend Mr. Odell, told us that Spitzbergen is an island about five hundred miles from Norway. It was discovered in 1596 in an effort to reach China by sailing west. Oxford University sent out three expeditions to explore Spitzbergen. Mr. Odell outlined the first two for us. The passage from Norway to the island is one of the most interesting and picturesque in the world. The explorers embarked at Bergen in Norway. They passed an island with a hole, two hundred feet across, running through it. Legend says that this was made by a thunderbolt which the great god Thor, in a towering rage, hurled at the defenceless little island. At Tromso they got into a ninety-ton Norwegian schooner, and after that sailing was less pleasant, as the Norwegian cuisine is a bit difficult, especially in rough weather. When they landed in Spitzbergen they established a " luxurious base camp. " They had two huts, lent to them by a Scotch-Spanish Syndicate. They had a drinking pond, and a washing pond. Unfortunately Dr. Longstaff mixed the two. Nevertheless he was awarded a medal by the Royal Geographical Society. Here, above glacial cliffs eighty to a hundred feet high, they encamped for a few days. On the morning of their departure, a bear appeared at breakfast. One man shot him, which none regretted when they found only two blades of grass in his " tummy. " The party set off for Mount Terrier, each man pulling a four-hundred-pound sleigh, which had to be unloaded and reloaded every few hundred yards because of ice crevices. Travelling was difficult but at last they reached the peak and erected a flag. They went on through a blinding blizzard, following their compasses, till they reached an unknown glacier. They could not tell where it led, but, hoping for the best, they skied down and arrived safely by the sea. On the second expedition, 1923, a different route was taken. During the trip they discovered hot springs, on the West coast. On one glacier they found a lake with a whirlpool (whose roar they heard five miles away) spurting water twenty feet into the air. With sails on their sleighs they proceeded, under the midnight sun, across thirty miles of unexplored interior, keeping in touch with the schooner by radio. On Mount Newton, six thousand feet above the sea, they found a brass cylinder, left by a Russian party in 1899, in which was a Petrograd newspaper and temperature records. They were held up for five days by storms, then had to push on for two days guided only by compass. At last the clouds lifted and they saw Mount Terrier again. They skied down their glacier and found the schooner within fifteen minutes of the time appointed. There are many rare birds in Spitzbergen, and the island was found to be the breeding place of some European species. There are hot springs, and Mr. Odell found some unusual geological f 49l specimens. The coal deposits and whaling trade are of industrial importance. Thus the island is valuable and interesting both from a scientific and economic point of view. Parts of the Spitzbergen landscape resemble the Colorado range, but the grim white glaciers, and the huge green ice cliffs above the cold grey restless sea, remind us of the Vikings. Perhaps a Viking god still rides on the howling wind over the icebound shore. And it is fitting that this odd wild island should belong to the descendants of these Norwegian men of old. Anne Byers, Form Upper VI. Canon Gower-Rees ' Visit ON ASH WEDNESDAY, February 13th, Canon Gower-Rees came to speak to us. Although some of us as members of St. George ' s had known him for some time, we had never had the pleasure of welcoming him to Traf. and so we were very glad of the opportunity. Canon Gower-Rees gave us much helpful advice about the keeping of Lent. He assured us that a melancholy, seemingly-religious person was not necessarily a good Christian and that, although we could derive much benefit from the opportunities of meditation which the season of Lent affords, it was not necessarily a time to mope and sigh. He urged us to be careful about our observance of Sunday — to remember that " The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath " — to take advantage of this day of rest to prepare ourselves for a busy week; not to waste it in pastimes which might be enjoyed any other day out of the seven. In short, to make Sunday a quiet, peaceful, happy day, which would be a real benefit to us. " It is the keeping of the Sabbath, " said Canon Gower-Rees, " that has made the British Nation so great. He also asked that we might " be natural " — that we might not be continually trying to imitate the opposite sex in " thought, word, and deed; " that we might see things at their true and proper value; and, above all, that we might keep throughout our life, the faculty to wonder at the beauties which surround us. We are very grateful to Canon Gower-Rees for giving up so much of his valuable time to give us this helpful advice. Marjorie Lynch, Form Upper VI. The Junior School Entertainment ON FRIDAY EVENING, May 3rd, a very enjoyable programme was given by the First Form, the Remove and the Upper First. The first part took the form of recitations by the First Form, all of which were well said and amusing. The Remove then presented a " Pageant of Spring Flowers. " This was charmingly portrayed by the Juniors who were dressed to represent daffodils, primroses, violets, bluebells and daisies. The lovely flower costumes, which were quite wonderfully made out of paper, we owe largely to the work of Elizabeth Elliott, Betty Lane and Nancy Stocking. The Upper First ' s part in the Entertainment took the form of a play " Paddly Pools. " When the curtain rose it revealed an old man sitting on a rocking chair half asleep and a small boy lying on the grass at his feet. But the old man might well have given up his attempt to sleep, for Tony asked question after question and talked bewilderingly of " The Little Old Man. " Grandpa forbade Tony to leave the garden, but no sooner had the old man dozed off once more than Tony climbed the bank crying, " I am coming. Little Old Man, I am coming. " The next scene presents the other side of the bank. A little old man in brown was talking to three fairies when Tony suddenly appeared. The old man showed Tony the spirits of the trees, grass and bunnies and then, changing into a little girl, he seized Tony by the hand and they ran off. In the third scene Tony returned to his Grandpa full of the wonders he had seen and crying joyfully, " Oh, Grandpa, I have been a tree and a tiny twig and a great big field and all sorts of wonderful things! " Grandpa thought this was all nonsense but Tony knew that it was really true. The principal parts were ably taken by Phyllis Hamilton, [ocelyn Cox and Joan Tooke in the respective roles of " Grandpa, " Tony and the Little Old Man. Between the acts several piano solos were given by the young participants. We were all sorry when the final tableau was reached and felt very grateful to all those who had lu-jpcd lo give us such an enjoyable evening. Kathryn Wood, Form Upper VI.

' ' as every other " Sixth " has left, and they are gone — but not forgotten! For Marjorie Lynch ' s Times has kept us all in touch with one another. This is Montreal ' s leading paper, and on its staff we find two more of the Sixth of ' 29. Mary Strachan gives sage advice to all who are lovelorn or who desire to know their correct weight, etc., in Mary ' s Morning Mail Bag (page 12). Lorraine Slessor attends all important social functions, so that the world in general may read in the Times who " served the ices " and what each lady wore. Audrey Doble, an ardent promoter of women ' s rights, has her headquarters in a cosy little office some twenty stories above Monkland Avenue in the centre of the business district. We find Bea Harvey, a far ' famed politician, in Ottawa. Helen Hendery is in Alberta. She has a debating society, and in her spare time she invents a painless method of imbibing algebra (pills or wafers, we are not sure which). Marion Wilson, our Botanist, is in Australia " looking into the apple question, " and making a scientific report for the Times of " what would happen if a Brussels sprout grew up? " Greta Larminie and Kay Wood are in Asia Minor, where they recently superintended the unearthing of the seventh civilisation under Tyre. Nancy Archibald and Audrey Ellis live together in Paris. Nancy is a famous writer and Audrey has distinguished herself as a children ' s portrait painter. Betty Brice has had a brilliant social career in London. We find Lorraine Ward in the Canadian delegation to the League of Nations (in the interests of monarchy). Betty Butler is Secretary to the Canadian Ambassador in the Argentine. Gretchen is the only one who is married so far. She has three little girls, whom she " dresses " in the morning. Gretch is usually to be found in the afternoon on the golf links playing champion- ship games. These distinguished women have only started their careers and are still on the way to greater glory.

" Lower Sixth Form Prophecy The Lower Sixth one rainy day, Desiring much to know their fate, Acquired a crystal ball some way, And what they found Vll now relate. First Hope peered in, we all pressed round And there she was, a racquet in her hand, Receiving cups and praise mid clamorous sound. Next Caddy looked, we saw a foreign land, A group of cannibals with curly hair Staring at Caddy while she told her tale. The ball foretold for Nan — but stop right there, Take it for granted it concerned some male. Next there appeared within the crystal clear A stage with trapeze, ropes and booms and bars. Isabel at work with neither qualm nor fear. The scene shifted to a room of gorgeous cars, IVe heard it said the woman always pays, But Libby ' s Dad looked green about the gills. And now appeared Sylvia somewhat in a daze. From a large bottle feeding infants pills. We snickered — there arose to meet our gaze A somewhat older Bobbie in a smock. Designing furniture to suit all days, f 6i I Beside her Maida in another frock, Still groaning she had not a thing to wear. Next appeared " multious " sheets of tricky numbers, Above which Vivian sat with rumpled hair, It faded — was seen a bed where Marianne slumbers, And as we peered she giggled even there.

And when the breakfast food does call us. In the dining room we eat our bell, Then we go for a half hour stairs, And line up on the walk pell mell. f 63 1 We go over to the school to play, But we have recess in which we learn ; We have to stay in the old fresh air, While for the Latin we do yearn. We have a dinner time to lie down. And then a rest in which we eat; All through the meal weVe not in silence. We shuffle our voices and talk with our feet. After that we have a long hour ' s walk, Where we do our home work for yesterday; Then we have two whole hours of study, Where we can laugh and shout and play. Then at night when we are all awake. We comb our hands and wash our heads; Then we go to sleep on the window And in warm weather open our beds. Anna Stevenson. Form IIIb. The Trafalgar Ghost WHERE do I live, what am I doing, where am I going? asks Nigger. Well, I live at Trafalgar and I am on my way to give someone a fright. Who am I? Oh dear, but you are inquisitive. Why I am the " Trafalgar Ghost " ; who do you suppose I am? I have been in this house a great deal longer than you have, and have seen many generations of girls come and go (but you would never guess that; I have kept my youthful appearance so well), and you have only seen one. I will tell you all my history if you will only keep it secret. My home is in the " Upper Dorm, " between Phyllis Green ' s cubicle and the cupboard; there is a passage — no, of course I shan ' t show you how to get in — that leads into a large room, where I live. The one inconvenience of this is that on Thursday nights the laundry paper in the basket always rattles and I am so afraid someone will find me. Just the other night my glasses dropped in the middle of the dorm, floor, and Miss Nichol ' s door opened. She is the person I am most afraid of discovery from; she always seems to be either coming out of or going into her room, just as I start on my evening round. I am lucky to be blessed with a sense of humour, because the girls do say the nastiest things about me in the mornings when they awake and find their books lying open on the floor, their letters all over the cubies, their animals in odd places, and a picture or two broken! They don ' t seem to understand that it is only natural for me to want to see all that is going on in my dorm. It was so funny to hear Anna Stevenson say the other day, " Oh dear, look at this gym stocking of Evelyn ' s, it has another hole in it and I thought I had mended them all; how maddening! " Of course it was all my fault. When I went into her room to try her new perfume, I dropped the scissors on her sister ' s stockings and hence the hole. f (H } Betty Turner was really the funniest thing when she accused " Bobby " of taking her bobby pins, and that she just had to have them or she could not go down to supper, and again it was only I. Why shouldn ' t I try all these inventions? I grant my hair is thin and gray, but I do think the bobby pin a most excellent thing. The only objection I have in the " Upper " is the bath salts Norah McGinnis uses. Why don ' t people use lavender, as they did when I was at school here? Yesterday Helen McLaggan came running upstairs into the dormitory and said she would never practise in room " i6 " again, because it was haunted ! I had just been there for Betty Turner ' s bobby pin, which I had lost; so for once I really succeeded in giving someone a good fright. Nigger, mind your manners, and don ' t you yawn so broadly. I will tell you something to wake you up. A week ago when I went down to the lower dorm, to see Marjorie Lynch ' s new coat, just as I opened the cupboard door my skirt caught in a mouse ' trap — I thought you would wake up at that — well, I shan ' t go on, just to punish you. Good-bye for now, Nigger, and do come up and see me, and we will play some good tricks on the " Upper! " Barbara MacKay, Form Lower VI. Upon Returning to " Traf " in One Hundred Years " Oh, mother, hurry up or we shall be late, " said Mary. " Have you got all your trunks? " said Mother. " Oh, why, why won ' t the chauffeur hurry? " cried Mary. " There he is up here! " The aeroplane landed. " To the Earth, " said Mother; and they started off. As they came nearer Earth, Mary said, " It seems funny to be going back to dear old Traf. again. " They landed in England and from there took an aeroplane to Montreal. The ' plane landed, and the wings folded, and it became an automobile. " Oh, hello, everybody! Had a nice holiday? Are there many new girls? " cried Mary, after she had left her mother and gone to her cubicle. " Hello, Mary! " said Jean her best friend. " Let me introduce you to Ruth Smith. " " How do you do; and where do you come from? " said Ruth. " I come from Mercury; where do you come from? " said Mary. " I just come from Calcutta, India, " answered Ruth. " Oh, you lucky thing, you can go home on Saturday afternoons; I can only go for week-ends. " You needn ' t grumble, Mary, I can only go home at Christmas and Easter because it takes a day and a night to get to Neptune, " said Jean. " What time do we get up here? " asked Ruth. " Do we have to get up for breakfast? " " We have to be dressed at nine o ' clock. See this button? Well you push that when you want your breakfast, and a little door slides to one side and your breakfast is on a tray, which comes up as soon as you push the button " said Mary. " What do we do after that? " asked Ruth. " We go for a hated drive in a Rolls-Royce roadster, one for each two girls, " said Mary. " Oh, how awful! " said Ruth. " I wish we could go for a fly instead. What time does school begin and end, and what do we do all day? " " School begins at nine forty-five and ends at twelve-thirty. We have lunch in the girls ' lounge. " After that we do what we like and then have to go for another drive for an hour. If you have special permission you can go shopping in New York for an hour. " When we come in we have tea in the girls ' drawing-room. Then we have study in our sitting room. After that we change for dinner which we have in the dining-room by ourselves. We can order what we like. After dinner we go to an opera or movie-tone. We can choose whichever we like. Sometimes we go to Paris or London or just to New York. Then we go to bed. " It doesn ' t sound especially nice, but I suppose one gets used to it, " said Ruth. " Oh, yes, we all really love it here, although we do grumble sometimes. " Anna Stevenson, Form IIIb. f 65 1 The Jungle As we stand here m the jungle edge And gaze through the gathering gloom, We see little monkeys perched on their ledge Who chatter to us of our doom. We stay not to ponder how silent ' tis grown, The call of the wild lures us on; Tomorrow we push to the far unknown Into the jungle at dawn. Birds of the rarest plumage are there. With a wealth of wondrous folk, And high above in the sun ' Warmed air They sing in the giant oak. I know that below there are waters foul And paths where dangers lie, Where the bear and the lion in hunger prowl And horrible creatures cry. But the jungle calls. Come on; come on! And the lust for adventure wins, So tomorrow we start at the crack o ' dawn. While the chattering monkey grins. Says he, Proceed, but watch your feet As you enter these paths of gloom. For never a sunlit glade you ' ll greet And short is the path to the tomb. Phyllis Green, Form IV I 66 II The Montreal Mendlessohn Choir EIGHT O ' CLOCK on the evening of April 15th found the Fifth and Sixth Form boarders arrayed in " Simple Whites " on the front stairs with the usual murmured complaints about dirty gloves, and hair that " just won ' t stay put, " coming from all sides in stage whispers. A concert is always an event in a boarder ' s life and this was to be given in the Win dsor Hotel by the Montreal Mendelssohn Choir — surely further comments are superfluous! The entertainment began with a Part Song, " Feasting I Watch, " by Sir Edward Elgar, who is, as our programme said, " Probably the most brilliant and famous of modern English composers. " Several numbers followed, among them being " The Swallow, " by Mary E. Coleridge, " Border Ballad, " by Sir Walter Scott, and the well-known folk-song, " The Keel Row. " The singing was then varied with a group of violin solos played by Miss Ibolyka Gyarfas, " Larghetto, " by Handel; " Anglaise " and " ' Variations, " by Tartine, which moved even the most unmusical of us to wonder and admiration. The Choir continued with a song called " Cherry Stones " which sent a titter of approval along the Traf line. How often have we said " Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor " over our breakfast prune-stones! Little did we think we would ever hear those words outside the portals of Traf! Another item which delighted us was " Rolling down to Rio. " Once more we imagined ourselves singling lustily at last year ' s closing, and we wondered if we had put half as much life and zest into the words as the men of the Choir did. Such songs as these, not forgetting the familiar " It was a Lover and his Lass, " added interest to the performance for " Us Trafites. " The climax of the programme was reached when Miss Gyarfas returned for another group of solos. Among these was " La Capricciosa, " written for and dedicated to Miss Gyarfas by Franz Reis. Words fail to express the beauty and depth of feeling with which this number was played — we all feel it was a privilege to hear her. " Bobby Shaftoe, " sung by the Choir, made a most delightful finale to a most delightful pro- gramme. We returned to school with the last two lines ringing in our ears — " He ' ll come back and marry me, Hurrah for Bobby Shaftoe! " Marjorie Lynch, Form Upper VI. Anxious Junior: " Do you have to get your matric to get married? " Room: " I ' ve looked all over for my blazer; where can it be? " Mate: " Have you looked upstairs? " Room: Oh, that ' s another story! " The Sleigh Drive WHO says thirteens are unlucky? I grant it was a Wednesday, but then it was a thirteenth that we had " The Sleigh Drive. " Everyone was ready, bundled up in four or five sweaters, parading silently downstairs to go out. " Oh, it ' s so hot! Why on earth doesn ' t that old sleigh come! I ' m so hot. " We had been waiting patiently for half an hour, and were getting rather rattled. " It ' s here, it ' s here! " was welcome news as we benevolently beamed on the news- carrier. " Quick! I bags that seat! Phil, I think you mean! Don ' t take all the room! " At last all were settled, standing, of course. The driver had forgotten the seats but that was a mere detail. f 67I On and on, along Sherbrooke Street to get the seats. You might be interested to know we bumped into several cars (or nearly did) on the way. We finally got the seats put in and were just starting to get cold, when off we jumped to keep warm. All went well till Betty Turner found the road was hitting her face. Up she valiantly struggled only to fall again. By this time, the sleigh, not knowing of this sudden tragedy, went faster and faster ' till all poor Betty could do was to shout, and by the help of willing hands was safely lodged once more in the sleigh. Songs arose from all sides. " Alouette " from one end and " My Bonnie " from the other. " Good- night, Ladies " was sung in the middle of the sleigh drive, but nobody minded that. It seemed to me the night grew colder every moment and it was such a help to hear someone call out every now and then " I ' m just as warm as toast! " All good things end somehow and I think everyone was sorry to see the school again. But thanks to Miss Randall we had hot cocoa and rolls, which tasted very good after that cold sleigh drive, and to which we all did justice. A few froze their toes (or thought they didj, but we will disregard that as an unpleasant detail. Thus ended " The Great Sleigh Drive of 1929. " I hope we have another next year, don ' t you? Constance Grier, Form IIIb. Phyllis Green, Form IVa. The Isadora Duncan Dancers SIGHS and groans of despair greeted the announcement that the boarders were doomed to an " afternoon in " on the first Saturday after our Easter holidays. But our hearts rose when the news spread (rumours travel quickly at Traf.) that we were all going to see the " Duncan Dancers " at the Princess. Picture, if you can, thirty-three boarders straggling into the theatre in a long " croc " ! At last we were all settled in our seats (having afforded no little amusement to all around us), and the performance began. The first number entitled " Slow March " was a great disappointment to all of us — our un- artistic minds failed completely to find any grace or beauty in it. But the Scarf Dance, which followed, quite overcame all our disappointment and we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the programme. Part II consisted of a series of dances interpretive of Chopin ' s " Prelude in E Minor, " " Valse Brillante, " " Polonaise in A Minor " and other compositions. We had never realized that such effectiveness could be gained by merely running and jumping — it looked so easy. We discovered afterwards, to our sorrow, that it really was not ! Then came a group of dances called " Impressions of Revolutionary Russia. " This part of the programme was probably the one which interested us most, as the dancers sang an accom- paniment to each number. " Dubinusha " or the " Workmen ' s Song " reminded many of us of " The Volga Boatmen. " The dancers, by the perfection of their poses, giving the impression of heavy strain and great physical exertion which must characterize the life of a Russian boatman. The programme was concluded with a " Russian Girl Scout Dance " which proved most inter- esting. The words of the accompanying song sounded, to many of us, something like — " Weei, weei, witchee, wi, Weei, witchee wi " — but our programmes told us that, when translated from Russian, the words were — " One, two, three, fearless are we; We are fearless. " In short, every one of the thirty-three Trafites was ready to agree that never had she imagined so much grace and agility coupled with such simplicity. We were indeed grateful to Irma Duncan and her dancers for giving us such a pleasant " Saturday in. " Marjcmuf Lynch, Form Upper VI. I 68 I House Note-Paper Before going to press, we feel that some mention should be made of one of the most interesting events of the year as far as the House is concerned — namely, the acquisition of school note paper. We had always looked forward to a time when we would write our Sunday letters inspired by the sight of " Spem successus dlit " at the top of the page, but we did not imagine that our hopes would be so soon realized. We are very grateful indeed to the girls who made the suggestion, and we hope that the boarders of future years will enjoy the note ' paper as much as we of ' 29 have done. Marjorie Lynch. He — " A doctor says that we are what we eat. " She — - " Then how did you happen to pick out prunes as a steady diet? " Professor Wogglebug, F.S.A.A. Ladies and Gentlemen — This is station TRAF, broadcasting this evening from Montreal. I have been asked to announce the latest arrival to our happy throng. Professor William Wilburt Wogglebug, F.S.A.A., that is, Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in Austria. He is a very wel- come stranger and seems to like his new surroundings very well, though at times it is rather lonely, as everybody is away all morning and most of the afternoon. However, on the whole, he is en- joying himself very much, he says, but Til just let him speak to you himself. Dear Friends — Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I would just like to take this op ' portunity of telling ycu a little about life in the Upper Dormitory, here at Trafalgar. I am the latest innovation, being the eleventh. I really come from Vienna, Austria, and naturally I find this a great change from my home-life. I have never been accustomed to living with so many, and of course, there are certain advantages, and also disadvantages, but my companions are all young girls, which is very pleasant indeed. I find it very hard to resign myself to the preposterously early hour at which we arise, but, on the other hand, I do not think I could possibly prepare myself for breakfast in any shorter time. As it is, I usually have to slip in after the meal has begun. The trouble is, it is not usual to have gentlemen at the meals here, and I have to make myself as inconspicuous as possible, and sit in a very cramped position. However, better that than starve, as I most assuredly would, because now one can ' t find even a crumb of chocolate or biscuit in the cupboards or laundry bags. After breakfast the cubicles have to be tidied, and the girls go over to school at nine, after the walk. During the morning, sometimes a lady comes around and puts a letter on a white card outside the door, and whenever I hear her coming, I have to just sit still and look nice and neat. After that I go out and skate, and by the time lunch is ready, I am really quite hungry. We always have soup at lunch, and it makes me so annoyed because I can ' t possibly manage to balance a plate of soup on my knee in the corner, and !69l I am really very fond of soup, much more so than of the pudding which usually comes later. After dinner one reads a book for a while and remembers to speak in whispers. Then there is skating, and after that, study. I never study, of course, it is so boring. The only thing I really care about is my EngHsh, and it is coming on quite nicely, I think. After supper we have prayers, and I always manage to get my knee-breeches so dirty, because they persist in forgetting to put a chair out for me, and the corner is somewhat dusty. Then we have mail, and I listen in vain for my name to be called out. I guess my old Austrian friends have forgotten me, or else they are scattered all over the world too. There is one thing I particularly like about this country though, and that is the skating. I am becoming quite an adept at that art, in spite of a sore back, and very bruised knees. In the evening after study, we sing, sew, or dance, according to the day, and later we have visiting. Then comes my " Waterloo " indeed. I get thrown all over the place, my pride is wounded, and my dignity positively stamped on! I am really quite worn out by the time is over. After " lights out " our fun begins. We are — but I must not give away secrets. You will have to board at Trafalgar to know what happens after lights out, my friends, I fear that I am beginning to bore you with so long an account, and so I will wish you all " Good Night. " NoRAH McGiNNis, Form Upper V. The Pirates of Penzance The news spread that Miss Gumming had bought tickets for the theatre ! Only a few ' twas said. The question now arose, who were the lucky ones to be? That evening all was settled; of course the weather was included, for it always rams when " Traf. boarders " go to the theatre. Nine of us piled into the taxi and started merrily on our way to The Pirates of Penzance and Trial by Jury. Hopes were high; and nothing was left to be desired, both were marvellous. Nine boarders sat in a row and enjoyed every minute of the performance. Trial by Jury was first on the programme, the whole spirit of it was charming and the costumes very attractive. The judge caused much amusement. In fact the whole line of boarders was doubled in two. Even the dullest of us understood and appreciated the jokes. That was our lucky night, for we saw " two in one. " The Pirates of Penzance was enjoyed im- mensely by all, and especially the song about the weather, for we boarders always resort to the topic of the weather when others fail to favour. Sir Henry Lytton played the part of Major-General Stanley. We were very fortunate in seeing him for he does not always appear now. He plays the part excellently and was the main spirit of the play. I believe none of us had ever laughed as much before. To be brief, we were all delighted with the evening performance and happy to have seen one of the famous D ' Oyly Carte operas.

The busy boarders paid no heed To idling girls, or dreamers. " By half past five it must be done, " A warning voice had said. By half past five ! — O kindly sun. Pray stand still overhead! At last, with many a laugh and jest. The room was quite completed; The Sixths and Fifths had done their best; Old customs were repeated : Big bright balloons for decoration. Fresh ferns and flowers, too — But stay, ' twould take a long oration To give this scene its due. At half ' past seven, just on the dot. The dining-room door flung wide. Excited boarders through it shot Right gaily, side by side. Their places found, the food was served. And then the fun began With shouts that would have quite unnerved The boldest soldier-man. Far louder than the cannon ' s boom The buzz of voices grew. While shouts of laughter filled the room And silent lulls were few. They toasted " old girls, " " new girls " too, They cheered till they were hoarse; Remarks about " my favour " flew — All read their rhymes of course. When they had eaten all they could They to the garden went; They talked and laughed, as school girls should When they on fun are bent. When half an hour had passed away. The drawing-room they sought. Where game and dance and song and play Set old dull Care at naught. But all good things must end you know — Their hour came at last. And boarders all, though loth to go. Knew another year had passed. If you have been a Trafite too, You ' ll understand my rhyme. You ' ll know this is no custom new. But one that ' s old as Time; You ' ll know just what a merry fete Those boarder-banquets are — But to better that of ' 28 Means work for Trafalgar ! Marjorie Lynch, Form Upper VI. f 73 I Virginia McLean MARVELLOUS! " gaspedmy somewhat plump neighbour who had apparently been holding her breath throughout the whole performance of Bach ' s Italian Concerto with which Virginia McLean opened her Pianoforte Recital at the Ritz Carlton — and that was, I imagine, the opinion, if slightly less audible, of everyone who was fortunate enough to hear it. From the minute the pianist walked on to the stage a hush fell over the audience. Her face wore a detached expression — almost as if she were completely unaware of the crowded rows of people in front of her. She bowed without even a smile, then seating herself at the piano began to play. With the first note reality faded and I was conscious only of dim lights, a slim dark girl in a yellow frock seated at a beautiful piano out of which she seemed to be calling an indescribable something — sometimes the music swelled to a brilliant crescendo, then faded to almost a whisper — every note as clear as the trill of the bird, whether soft or loud, slow or lightning quick. The thunderous applause which broke out as she rose from the piano expressed more fully than mere words the unanimous opinion of her audience. After an interval of a few minutes, during which a buzz of exclamations and praise for the youthful artiste filled the room, she came back and played Mozart ' s Sonata in A Major with the same exquisite perfection. And, so the programme continued with compositions of Schumann, Brahms, and finally as a concluding presentation three short pieces by Debussys. Our last glimpse showed her standing before the audience surrounded by beautiful flowers — unconsciously making an exquisite picture — bowing m acknowledgment of the applause which refused to die away. We arrived back at school tremendously impressed, and so to bed still feeling a trifle in the clouds but with gratitude in our hearts for the thoughtfulness of Miss Cumming and Miss Bryan for making such a pleasure possible. Betty Lane, Form Lower VL Cautionary Tales for Boarders One failing had Selina Strong — She roused the morn with bursts of song. Nor musical was this dear child; Her choruses were rude and wild. Once, as her powers she thus evoked. Oh! sad to say — Selina choked. They bore the maiden to her bed, And as she breathed her last she said, " Friends, never raise your voices higher Than I shall in the angel choir. " One great defect had Aggie Ayers — She always jumped the dormy stairs. One day she ran, she slipped, she fell — Heartrending was the maiden ' s yell! They rushed First Aid to Aggie there, But she was past all human care. And as she neared her tragic death She whispered with her latest breath, " Dear friends, take warning from my fate. Descend the stairs at modest rate; Tip ' toe about both night and day. " With that, poor Aggie passed away. E.

House stripes were awarded to the six girls whom the committee considered to have shown the best spirit in all games. They were: Marjorie Lynch Evelyn Boughton Barbara Mackay Rosamund Perry Pauline Scott Theo Barclay On March 7th, stripes were awarded to — Helen Blaylock - Phyllis Green Betty Turner Margaret Anderson Anna Stevenson Gonstance Grier MERIT BADGES An election was held m March, 1928, for the House badges, which are awarded annually to the girls who have shown the best ability and spirit in the House games. The girls of this year were: Elizabeth Train Marjorie Lynch f 75 1 Fourteenth Company Report E WERE all very glad to welcome Miss Evelyn Howard and Miss Isobel Holland back this year as our Captain and Lieutenant. This year nine new Guides joined the Company and two first-class Brownies " flew ' up " and received their wings. We were very sorry at Christmas to lose two of our patroMeaders, Barbara Tooke and Betty Stewart. Instead of choosing two new leaders, we decided to combine the two patrols, with Janet Cameron as the leader. The Honour Flag Competition was held in our own hall this year instead of in the Guards Armory as before. Unfortunately we made a mistake in our instructions and lost all marks for the bed which we should have made, not only furnished. In the Rally this year we are going to do signalling together with the sixtyfourth and two outside companies. On the whole, it has been a successful year, and on the part of every Guide I wish to thank Miss Howard and Miss Holland for the help which they have given us. Cynthia Bazin, Oriole Patrol. Sixty-Fourth Company Report We all welcome Miss B. Carter, our new Captain, very warmly and wish to thank her for all she has done for this Company. In October the Brownies who wished to become Guides and the recruits were enrolled. Last Spring one of our Patrol Leaders, Jean Darling, won her first ' class badge. She is now going to be a Ranger. The Honour Flag Competition was held at each Company ' s Headquarters this year instead of in the Grenadier Guards Armory as previously. In our division this Company came third. For the Competition we made a four-poster doll ' s bed and a nature alphabet. On May iSth the Guides of this city will hold their Annual Rally. This Company with two others are going to signal Welcome to Lady Willingdon in Morse code. We are going to sing a song and help form the Union Jack. Shirley Stevenson, Kingfisher Patrol. f 7 ' 11 Advice from a Brownie ROWNIE ALICE was walking through a field, when she came upon a rather large mushroom. ' As she came closer, she noticed a caterpillar sitting on it. " Hullo! Who on earth are you? " said the caterpillar. " I am Alice and I am a Brownie sixer, " said Alice proudly. " Who are you? " " That ' s none of your business; the point is, what is a brownie or whatever you call it and what do they do? " said the caterpillar. " A Brownie, " said Alice, " is a little girl who tries to do a good deed every day and is kind and helpful. I have just been to our brownie meeting — we have them every week — and we had such fun, two girls passed their second class, and Brown Owl told us that in two weeks we are going to have a Brownie Rally. " " What on earth, " said the caterpillar, " is a Brown Owl, unless you mean old Fluffy who lives in the old oak; and a second class — why, my goodness, my child is in the seventh class in school, and you, a great big girl, only in the second class — it ' s absurd. " " Oh, please, sir! " cried Alice, " I don ' t mean that kind of second class, I mean a Brownie second class. That means that you know how to darn, and how to lay a table, and know all about the Union Jack, and other things like that. After you have passed your second class, you try and pass your first class, it is much harder, but lots of Brownies have passed it. When I am a little older, I am going to try and pass it. " " What a lot of rubbish you are talking, " said the caterpillar, " I don ' t understand at all. " At this point Alice felt very much like running away, but she remembered that she was a Brownie. " Well, " said the caterpillar, " I must go now. Good-bye. " And he was gone. " Well, " said Alice, " I tried to be nice to him; but I don ' t think he understood me — anyway it must be tea-time.

Mitchell for the Tennis Cup he presented to the School. We will not forget Eileen, Pauline and Patricia who were with us for six years and took an active part in school life, excelling in all sports. Tennis Hope Laurie repeated her last year ' s victory m winning the School Senior Tennis Championship in the final match with Nancy Stocking. Inter-Form Finals lc2?-29 Upper V won the Cup in the Form Tennis Matches. Marjorie Lynch and Hope Laurie were the representatives playing. Badminton Unfortunately Badminton has not proved as popular this year as we had hoped. Basketbal still appears to be the leading game. Skating The rink was used extensively for skating this year and enjoyed particularly by the younger girls. On several occasions the boarders had the pleasure of skating at night. The Gymnastic Competition 1928 The InterTorm Gymnastic Competition was held on June 3rd, 1928. All forms had worked hard to make their own the best and the total marks showed that the competition was close. The shield was won in the Senior School by Form Upper V and in the Junior School by Form Upper L The judges were Miss Wain and Miss Harvey. The shield awarded to the best albround captain in the school was won by Carol Ross, captain of Form Upper VL The Gymnastic Demonstration 1928 ON THE evening of March 8th, there was great excitement at school. Crowds of parents sat in the Assembly Hall, in a state of great anticipation. In the classrooms below there was still more excitement, as the girls waited eagerly but nervously for their turn upstairs. Outside the Hall we doorkeepers were anxiously waiting for the performance to bagin, trying to keep calm but fearful of making mistakes. The first item was Junior Drill and Races, which was received with great enthusiasm by the spectators. After this came balancing by the Fifth and Sixth Forms, who did the difficult exercises very well. This year, instead of drill, the Fifth Form gave an exhibition of figure ' marching. This was one of the most popular features of the evening, especially the huge " T " which was formed at the end. All the other forms did drill of different kinds. The Sixth Form musical drill was very graceful. ff 79l There were three dances on the programme. These were a Scandinavian dance, the Galliard and " Fairy Revels. " All three were very pretty, especially the " Fairy Revels, " in which dainty elves and fairies took part. Ropes and horse, as usual, received great applause. At the end of the evening we all gathered, tired but happy, for the Grand March, and the badges for Gym. Officers were awarded by Canon Gower-Rees, after a short address by Mr. R. O. Sweezey. We are very grateful to Dorothy Ward for playing for us, and to Miss NichoU for the great pains she has taken to make the Demonstration a success, and we wish to extend to both our most sincere thanks. Jean Harvie, Form IVb. BASKETBALL 1928-29 House and School Matches The School Team won the two matches played with the House. The games were both good and closely contested. Final Inter-Form Match Lower V and Lower VI had a hard fight for the Senior Inter-Form Cup. The game resulted in a victory for Lower V, Captain, Barbara Tooke. Score 38-26. The Junior Inter-Form Basketball was won by Form Upper II. Score 27-20. Basketball League The Private Schools Basketball League has completed its third year. Last year Weston won the Championship which has, however, reverted once more to Trafalgar. The games have all been exciting and closely contested, each school playing six. During the entire season, Trafalgar lost only one game, the first with Weston. This year the Second Team has come into existence and has helped to promote popularity in the game. The schedule is as follows : — Weston Miss Edgar ' s Study Trafalgar Total Weston 0 2 2 8 2 2 0 Miss Edgar ' s 2 2 0 6 0 2 0 Study 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Trafalgar 0 2 2 10 2 2 2 1 80 1 Team Criticisms 1928-29 The Team — An excellent spirit has been shown throughout the year and practice has been regular and thorough.
