I don ' t want to be mean - but it ' s just that I ' ve been camping down at the Young Montrealer ' s (you know, Eaton ' s shop for smart people like you and me) and it ' s pretty hard to find Paris news that isn ' t apparent there. So next time you write you ' d better confine yourself to museums and churches — and possibly the details of your private life. Seriously though, it ' s been my salvation. Thanks to it and the Debutante Hat Shop, and of course the accessory spots, I ' m now ready for the rampage of graduating — and I ' m not referring to examinations either. I ' ve never had so many evening dresses — nor such smart ones. I ' ve picked only the kind that will be right for dinner on board (we ' re sailing the week after graduation) and then for evenings in the Bois, etc. Naturally I ' ve laid in a good supply of sports clothes — from Harris tweeds and fleecy things for the iceberg regions right through to culottes — and won ' t they be grand if we decide to bicycle through Fontainebleau !

LONG LIVE THE KING. ' " " T ' HE fatlier of this great family " is tlie way King George spoke of himself JL in his Christmas greeting to the Empire a year ago. That is the way we shall always think of him. The bond between him and his people was greater by far than that between a King and his svxbjects. It was a bond of personal love. The King who never failed his people will always live in their hearts. Our late beloved Sovereign King George, came to the throne twenty-five years ago, and under his quiet leadership we have come through one of the most perilous periods of our history. Quietly and simply, always with dignity and understand- ing, the King has spoken the right word and done the right thing. Four years after he came to the throne began the World War. He and the Queen made themselves one with the people both at home and at the front. After that came the terrible time of financial difficulty through which he wisely guided Britain. He worked hard and long, never sparing himself, and deserved every bit of the wealth of affection, respect and loyalty to himself and our Queen shown by " his very dear people " at his Silver Jubilee. He has been such a wonderful personality that it is very hard for the nation, to realize, even under the sad rolling of the bells, that the King is Dead! The bells tolled. Kings must die, but Kingship never. Immediately after the tolling the spirited blasts of silver trumpets announced the accession to the throne of our much loved Prince of Wales. Long live the King! We have been used to dignified-looking bearded monarchs; now that young man, with those very wistful eyes, has come to the throne. In his picturesque red plane, after his father ' s death, he flew to Buckingham Palace to take the oath of accession. King Edward, who has been known for so long as the Prince of Wales, is the most widely travelled of all princes. He has long captured the love of his people. He has mixed with them as one of them. During the war he insisted on going to France, regardless of the danger. He also loved the life in the navy. He loves all that is in modern life. He is known as the " gay and charming Prince " , fond of dancing and late parties, and sports of all kinds, and of flying. He is the first British King to fly in an aeroplane. He has been prepared in everyway for his duties as King. He has been practically in every part of the British Empire, and business men laughingly call him, " the Empire ' best salesman. " At the time of the Jubilee he showed his sympathy for the youth of Great Britain by inaugurating a fund to help them. He again showed his thoughtful- ness for the people when he did not make the day of his father ' s funeral an official holiday in case it should mean any hardship to the workers. He has pledged himself to follow in his father ' s steps. With his mother. Queen Mary, to help him we need have no fear of the future. His reign has begun in very perplexing times, and hard work lies ahead of him, but we can feel sure that, like his father, it always will be service before self. Anne Dodd, Form IVa. [13] HERE is always great anxiety in the School while contributions for the Magazine are being collected. On one side there is the strain of " writing something " and on the other the strain of getting " written somethings. " This year we have had a great number of contributions and we wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who have sent in articles. Some of these which were really very good, we were forced to omit for lack of space. Mile. Dillon and Mile. Juge have been most helpful in obtaining material for the French Section. We are very proud of having a " Correspondance Franco-Anglaise " again. Several new activities have sprung up during the year into which most of us have entered with zest. The first is the choir. Of course here only those who felt that they could sing without causing pain to others, entered. It says much for our musical abilities as a school that over eighty volunteered. Of these forty were chosen. They now lead the morning hymn with lustry voices. We congratulate Miss Strawbridge on her success with the choir and thank her for the time and thought she has given it. We have a Sewing Circle which can be seen every Wednesday afternoon busily engaged in work of great usefulness. Under the expert guidance of Miss Hicks a quan- tity of garments useful in the West have been turned out. In our daily round a lecture is always welcome and this year we have been very lucky as to quantity as well as quality. Dr. Donald, whom we are always ready to welcome came to the closing in December. We were very glad to have Archdeacon Cower-Rees witli us again on Armistice Day and on Ash Wednesday. In November Mr. McC owan gave a delightful lecture on Plant and Animal life in the Rocky Mountains. It was ilhiHlraled by slides taken over a period of twenty years. Mr. McCowan himself was charming and we are all hoping that he will come back again next year. Tn a very ainiising and interesting lecture Bishop Fleming of the Arctic told us of his work ainoiig I lie Kskinios. lie made us realize ihe great need there is for work up lliere and he made lis (eel liow imicli llie workers are doing. We switch from the cold Nortli to cold " Traf " in .Taniiary and we see ourselves Hprcad variously over llie winter sporls. The rink and skiing ])lay a great pari in our |14 lives at this time, many fear at the expense of our work. Our keenness for Basketball grows with the years. We have many fine players shaping in the lower Forms, and are proud of our two School Teams. Both have worked hard and have captured their respective Cups. The interest of the rest of the School is shown by the increasing attendance at the games, for which the teams are sincerely grateful. On the part of the School we wish Mrs. Bombe and her husband all the luck and hope, that she will manage him as she managed us. We all agree that Miss Parker is a worthy successor to Miss Booth and it is owing to her efforts that we have made a success of our Athletic year. It was with deepest regret that we heard that Mrs. Munro had left us to join her husband. Although few of us know the real author of the words describing Pitt " The pilot who weathered the storm " we all know that it was Mrs. Munro who quoted them. Undoubtedly we shall, in the years to come, forget much of our History but, " Pitt, the pilot who weathered the storm " will always remain. We were sorry to lose Miss Lewis who had taught for many years at " Traf " and she left many friends behind her. We welcome the Mistresses who came in September and hope we have not completely exhausted them. It is not generally known that Forrest Burt who came first in Junior Matriculation two years ago, and first in Senior Matric. last June, was the winner of the Australian Essay in the Province of Quebec. The results were only announced after school closed last summer. Forrest put a great deal of hard work into this essay and she deserves our congratulations. Jean Harvie, whom many of us remember at Traf. won the Gold Medal for Classics in her final year at McGill. We olso offer our hearty congratulations to Jean.

[15] THE LONE WITNESS ON a little river far up in northern Canada, Watson ' s paper-mills hummed and buzzed continuously like a drone of bees. All day long logs floated down to the mills from the huge timber woods some ten miles up the river. Only at nightfall did the activity of the little paper-making town cease. Only at nightfall could the roaring of the huge waterfall below the town be heard. J. P. Watson, heavy and red-faced, with twice the strength of an ordinary man, was the owner of these mills. He ran the whole village, and was regarded by the vil- lagers with awe not unmixed with fear. He was feared because he was so strict and hard; and although he drove his men relentlessly ten hours a day, nobody grumbled, because he paid well. On the evening of one hot, sultry day, Anne Watson, the pulpmagnate ' s only daughter, sat at the window of her bedroom staring vinseeingly at the landscape in front of her. Her face was white and strained except for a redness around her eyes, which were a mixture of terror and anger. Her long, slender fingers twisted nervously at a handkerchief, and her lower lip was caught between her teeth. She sat there as the sun sank lower and lower, and finally disappeared. Still she sat there, her hands never ceasing llu ir nervous movenienl. Finally somebody moving in the garden below caught her eye and broke the spell which seemed to hold her. A little old man, l ent, wrinkled and lann( (l from long lays in llu o|)cn, was coming up tlie path. At ihe sight of liiui Honi ;liiing iiiHidi; lier Hna|)])ed and like a flood, ihc liorrible scene that had |K.| taken place that afternoon, rushed over her. Every movement, every word was clear in her mind. She saw the anger on her father ' s face and the stranjje expression that had come into his eyes, almost the expression of a madman, when she had let herself go and said what had been brewing within her ever since last winter, when she had come back from the visit at her aunt ' s, where for the first time in her life she had been really happy; and where she had met Bob Robertson. She had told her father that she was going to marry Bob; that she had spent thirteen years in the same house, never meeting any young people, never going to parties, never doing anything that young people did, keeping house for her father, and for enjoyment paddling up and down the river by herself. She started to tremble violently as she thought of her final words, " Why do you treat me like this? I ' m your own daughter! if you ' re trying to break me as you did m--! " The terrible silence that had followed her father ' s angry " Anne! " , in which she realised what she had said, had terrified her, and she had stvimbled from the room, hardly noticing the bent, little figure of the old man standing just outside the door, who watched her with a dog-like expression of silent devotion and sympathy. Whose eyes, when they turned to the room in which her father was, blazed with hatred. As she watched his slow progress up the path, Anne found herself wondering about him, and at a time like ' this, she thought. She knew that he had been with the Watson paper-mills for thirty years, thirty years and he was still earning barely enough to make a living; and yet people said that he worshipped J. P. Watson and would do anything for him. Anne herself had seen the way he followed her father around and seemed devoted to him, and she could remember that ever since she was a child, he had watched her as carefully as if she had been his daughter. Like the time when he had pulled her out of the river when her canoe had upset. A funny little man, who never voiced his opinions but always listened to everything, his quick black eyes, which he could veil at a moment ' s notice, never missing anything. She wondered how he could like her father after the day she had seen him strike the little man and knock him down; and after all the times that her father stormed and swore at him for some- thing that was not his fault. Only the housekeeper, Mrs. Philips had said, " He don ' t love J. P. like he makes out. " The next day dawned bright and hot, and Anne rising from the bed where she had thrown herself the night before without bothering to undress, stared at herself in the mirror with a determined expression, as she tidied her hair. She had decided whether her father gave his consent or not she would marry Bob, though her heart pounded rapidly at the thought of going through another such scene. When she went downstairs Mrs. Philips informed her that her father had gone down the river " O so angry " , and that somebody was " in for it. " After gulping down a cup of steaming coffee, Anne left the house in the direction of the mills. Walking quickly, and repeating over and over again what she was going to say, she soon reached the town. Her father, she was told, had gone farther down the river to Higgins ' the last house before the waterfalls. Anne followed, vainly trying to [17] suppress the nervousness mounting in her. At last sJie couhl see the cotta};;e, and as she drew near her father ' s angry voice rang out ahove the roar of the falls. Then he appeared, and at the sight of his face Anne ' s determination left her. She could not approach him now, not now or ever she thought, and yet she must do something. And as she stood concealed from the river bank watching her father climh into the hoat his back to her, she saw a bent little man creep up behind him, cast off the painter, and dart back into the woods. The oars were on the bank, and the warning scream which rose to Anne ' s lips was a mere whisper. The little boat swerved madly and swung towards the falls, her father ' s arms waved wildly as he fought to keep his balance. Anne stared, unable to shut her eyes as the boat dipped and swayed, and plunged over the rushing torrent, out of sight. Barbara Ward, Form Matric I. FROST ON THE WINDOW-PANE Stenciled on the window-pane Patterns white and fair Silently they formed last night In the midnight air. Lacy and so beautiful They seem to all our eyes As we note the figures rare And the shapes of every size. No human hand could fashion Or could mould those shapes so fair God formed them silently last night Out of the midnight air. Allana Reid, Form IIIb. A SQUARE DANCE THE village of La Minerve, Quebec, was wide awake to-night, there was going to be a " veille " at Willie ' s. Willie Simon, a charming middle-aged halfbreed, had a house in a strategic point in the village, opposite the post office and next to the general store. To-night people came flocking into his tiny house. He himself had built this crude square building with its sloping roof; inside, downstairs, were two combined rooniK, ihe kitchen and sitting room, and a large bedroom and dining room. Al llic moment, all llie guests were clustered in the kitchen and one could smell the fresl) hron( laid on a side board; near the bread stood a large barrel of water. For a goo«l lialf hour while llie guests were arriving, stories were told, mostly tongue twisters and yarns. Finally, when about fifty peo|)le wore all 8quashe l into the little room — [18] it was a mystery to find how they all packed in — they began to go into the next room where all was cleared for the occasion, and the large bed, in which were two wide eyed little Indian boys, was pushed aside. Willie and one of his brothers then brought out their fiddles. Now the square dance had started, the men chose their partners and the fiddlers began their playing. Old and young joined in the dance, they turned and they spvin, round and round to the com- mands of the master of ceremonies, Elzear Simon, another of Willie ' s brothers. On they went, faster and faster as the fiddlers played. This is called " swingay " , in fact the whole entertainment is called either " swingay " or " veille " , " swingay " , somehow, seems to describe it better, and convey what type of entertainment to expect. In the middle of the " swingay " there was quite a delightful solo dance, performed by Elzear, the caller. It was an odd mixture of tap dancing and acrobatics; in the middle of tapping he would suddenly sommersault, jump up in the air and land in a ball, or bang his knees, elbows, then head, on the floor. Meanwhile the people gathered round him in awe and admiration, they all knew the steps well and knew when to expect his surprising antics. After he had been well applauded the dancing went on. Sharp at twelve the dancing stopped and fresh buttered bread and cold water was handed to all. Then slowly and reluctantly the people began to leave. The French Canadians are very polite; they thanked Willie and his wife cordially and did not outstay their time. At last they had all left. The air in the two rooms was blue with smoke and smelt of the strong " shag " tobacco so popular among these people. The two little fellows in the bed were sound asleep, and the fiddles lay worn and shaken after their long usage. Thus ended a happy evening in the life of a French Canadian. The customs, the lives and the simple entertainment of these people are things to be treasured and kept, through the years to come. Faith Lyman, Form Upper Vi. THE TEACHER ASKED THE GIRL {with apologies to A. A. Milne) The teacher asked The girl, and The girl asked Her neighbour: " Could we have the answer for Is Alexander dead? " The girl asked The neighbour. The neighbour Answered, " Certainly, I ' ll look at The book Now. " And ducked down the head. The neighbour She smiled. And turned and told Another girl: " Can ' t find the answer for Is Alexander dead? " The other girl [19] Said sleepily: " YouM better tell The teacher That many pupils nowadays Like Algebra Instead. " The neighbour Said: Oh, fancy! ' And turned to The President She looked at the President and She turned a little red: " Excuse me Dear President For taking of the liberty, But algebra is tasty if It ' s not too Thickly Spread. " The President said: " Oh! " And turned to The teacher: " Let ' s leave the question of ' Is Alexander dead? ' As many people Think that Algebra Is nicer. Would you like to try a little Algebra Instead? " The teacher said: " Hollior! " And tlien she said: " Oh, deary me! " Tlu ' Icai licr wighcd: " Oh, deary me ' And liirn(Ml away ber head.

" Nobody, " she said As she questioned Her again, " Nobody, " she said As she wrote On the board, " Nobody Dear children Could call me A Fussy thing — But I do like an answer when its properly said. " J. Seely, Form Upper V2. STAMP COLLECTING STAMP collecting; is one of the most popular hobbies for two reasons. First, it is cheap. Buy a dollar album, a ten-cent packet of stickers, an envelope containing a thousand mixed stamps costing a quarter, and you have become a stamp collector. Second, stamps are compact. They may be valued at five dollars or five hundred dollars, but there it is between the covers of a volume that you can carry under one arm. Moreover, anyone can collect stamps; with a capital of one dollar or one hundred thousand dollars: and at the age of nine or ninety. That is why stamp talks are given over the air, and why many newspapers devote a weekly page to philately. The rise in stamp value has been steady and consistent. About 1860, an Englishman named Hughes got together a small collection worth less than four hundred dollars. Twenty years later, the same stamps were sold for fifteen thousand dollars, and today, they could not l)e bought for ten times that amount. The costliest stamp was discovered in 1872 by a school boy in Georgetown, British Guiana. He found an envelope in his attic with a specimen of the one cent magenta. He sold it to a dealer for six shillings; the dealer afterwards sold it for six hundred dollars. Following the war, this identical stamp was bought by an agent of Mr. Arthur Hinds of Utica, N.Y., for the sum of thirty-two thousand, five hundred dollars. That is the largest sum ever paid for a single postage stamp. This, of course, is an unusual and rare specimen. One of the mistakes of most beginners is to assume that stamps acquire value through age. This is true to a certain extent, but the oldest stamp is not necessarily the most expensive. The value of a stamp depends upon the numbers of copies extant. Stamp collections are of two kinds, general and specialized. The general collections take in anything, whenever it is issued, whereas the specialized collections are limited to one country, or just airmail stamps, or there are collections devoted to music and art. Collecting stamps is a pursuit of royalty. The late King George of England is said to have had the finest collection of stamps, from Great Britain and the colonies in the world. King Edward, the late King Albert and Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, the Crown Prince Gustav of Sweden, and the former King Alfonso of Spain also are great roval collectors. When Sir Rowland Hill suggested to put a Government stamp on all letters, he must be considered not only the father of the postage stamp, but also the father of stamp collecting.

In a slow and graceful movement, Gliding o ' er a mirror ' d pool, Stopping only for an instant. To refresh in waters cool. Only once, thy grace, beheld I Near that pool, one summer day. But thou heard ' st those steps intruding Flapped thy wings and flew away. O thou Swan of glorious heavens Dressed in plumes of snowy white.

Usually I had plenty of time to finish my evening walk with light enough to find my way but this night, a mile from home, I could hardly see my path and was very near to losing myself. The air was heavy and oppressive, the trees were quite still, somehow nature seemed to be waiting or listening for something. I felt vaguely uncomfortable and out of place. If only the moon would come out, I thought, or a sound break the strange stillness. Then, almost as soon as it was expressed this latter wish was granted; a sound did break the stillness, a sound that made a shiver run up my spine and my heart leap into a totally un- accustomed, region — a weird unearthly noise, more resembling the howl of a wolf than anything else I could think of. It began on a low note of indescribable sadness gradually growing into a crescendo of mournful agony. Then, after ceasing for a moment, it changed to a cry of anger, almost it seemed like a challenge, so real that I could feel the hate and desire in every note. Finally I could bear it no longer, wild, unreasoning terror seized me, I rushed blindly ahead and at length found myself in my own grounds week and trembling with fear. Two days after this occurrence our little town was in an uproar. Other people besides myself had heard that ghostly howl and theories supposing it to be made by a prehistoric monster or a supernatural fiend were rife. So the next night four police- men had been sent into the wood, where the sound had come from. They failed to return to report the results of their investigation and the next morning, when search was made, they were all found dead in different parts of the wood (they had been told to separate for the search). In each case their necks had been torn open, obviously by some animal for teethmarks were plainly visible. There were no foot-prints as there had been a long drought and the afternoon ' s search had so far brought no reward. There was another cause for excitement. On the same day that I had my terrifying experience, a convict had escaped from the nearby prison and in spite of the extensive search which the authorities had instituted, there had been no sign of him. So between these two unusual happenings it was no wonder we were upset. This same afternoon I received a visitor, a Mr. Slater whom I had known at college. He had come to me about a matter that had been worrying him. A friend of his, Richards by name, had promised to wire him from this town the day before about an important business deal and had not done so. Inquiries at the inn had revealed that Richards had come there two days before, alone except for his Alsatian dog but had disappeared the same night leaving his luggage behind. As his friend told this story a fantastical idea came into my head, " Was Richards ' dog fond of him? " I asked. " Absolutely devoted, I never saw anything like it " , was the reply. That night the chief of police. Slater and I armed with a huge net and a couple of pistols, set out to try our luck against the strange monster in the woods. The other two, I knew, felt that it was a wildgoose chase but that idea of mine had matured and led me to bring them there. We made our way deeper and deeper into the wood. I was beginning [23] to lose hope when suddenly in front of us the huslies parted and tlie dim outline ot a large dog was seen. With a low growl he made for my throat. Fortunately we had the net ready and managed to capture him without injury to ourselves hut we could not go near him. With blazing eyes and snapping jaws he kept us at our distance. Suddenly, Slater said, in astonishment that it looked like Richards ' dog but that the animal formerly had always been gentle. I was not very surprised to hear this for it had been part of my plan. But before I could say so, I spied a small clearing ahead and telling the others to follow, I went forward. There in the clearing were the bodies of two men, one of whom Slater identified as Richards and the other, as we could see by his uniform was the escaped convict. Richards had been evidently strangled by the convict but the latter ' s throat was mangled like those of the policemen. Gradually we pieced the story together. The convict had probably killed Richards to get his clothes and the dog, seeing what had happened too late to prevent it had slain him in revenge. Mad with grief for his master, he had mourned him with that awful howl, so like that of his ancestor the wolf. Wolf-like too in his savage despair, he had killed the four policemen, probably thinking that since his master had been killed by a man all mankind was his enemy. When I heard of Richards ' disappearance with his dog, I thought that perhaps harm had come to the man and that the dog was trying to protect him. I did not guess that the convict had murdered him, nor did I guess how savage the dog had become. Even- tually we had to shoot him, for each night he awakened the countryside with his mourn- ful howl, which, although people now knew what it was never failed to move them by its unearthly sadness.

A STUDY IN CANNIBALISM Josephine, Ohio, 10 p.m. A dark rainy night — a green light at the crossroads and a heavy car approaching. Grireen changes to red — the brakes slam down — Buster, the car, with a graceful swerve, slides across the road, turning, turning, until a sturdy telephone pole present itself, none too gently. Follows a little conversation. " Trying to beat the light! " says mother from the back seat. " Nothing of the kind, " retorts father. " This car needs four-wheeled brakes, that ' s all. Two-wheeled brakes aren ' t enough for such a heavy car. " " Pity he isn ' t a year later, " says big sister. " They came on all the cars then. " " That gives me an idea, " says father. " I wonder — " Chicago, Illinois, 5 a.m. Ten days later. " Do look at that dilapidated old Lincoln in front of the hotel, " says little sister. " He looks like Buster ' s twin brother. " " No, a year younger, " says father. " And so it has four-wheeled brakes. But it won ' t have them long, for we are going to drive it to Cincinnati and have them put on Buster next week. " Behind the newcomer stands Buster. The two cars are really the same size, but Buster in shiny black seems larger than his companion, in shabby grey. Buster seems to tower above him and to gloat over his intended victim. " It looks decrepit, " says mother. " Will it run? " " What can you expect for $90? answers father, evading the question. It is soon answered, however. The starter wails dismally a few minutes, then silence. Finally a condescending push from Buster sets the engine beating like a steel mill and the dis- sipated looking thing moves off. [25] " As soon as you get out of town, " says fatlier to big HiHter, " Drive as fast as you can, or we shall not reach Cincinnati before dark and this car has no lights. And we must not separate, for the engine may explode and leave me bigb and dry, miles from anywhere. " Somewhere in Indiana, 2 p.m. A gas station — big bright pumps — red benches — a soft drinks stand — two or three loafers lolling in the shade. " Good grief, " says one. " What ' s this coming in? " A dusty grey car shudders up to the pumps, a cloud of steam rising from the top of the radiator where the cap should be. The service man steps forward. " Is your engine hot, mister? " he calls through the clouds of smoke. The driver disdains to answer, but he shouts a warning to the youth approaching with a watering-can. " Easy there, don ' t fill her up till she cools off. You ' ll crack the engine. " " Anything wrong with the old bus? " " Ill say. It ' s like a sieve. You go ten miles and then it begins to pant as if it hadn ' t had a drink for a year. I call it Puffer. " A big black car with a Quebec license rolls up to the station. Its passengers greet those with the Illinois license. " How about keeping it down to forty? " calls big sister. " Buster ' s no racehorse. " " If I do, " father objects, " This thing begins to pant and puff and then stops. And you know what that means. " " You folks together? " inquires one of the loafers. For the seventh or eighth time that day explanations are given, and a quiet Hoosier service station is given something to talk about in the afternoon heat. Cincinnati, Ohio, 10 a.m. A week later. Before the house stands Buster, sleek and strong. If he could lift his wheels, he would be proud to show that he has a brake attached to each one. But in order to attain this result. Puffer has been torn to pieces and demolished. Piled neatly in the cellar lie his remains, engine, fenders, and all sorts of parts. " A great thing having all those parts right in the cellar, " says father. When Buster needs anything replaced, we have it. " " And when all Puffer ' s parts are in Buster, shall we be driving Buster or Puffer, " asks lillle sister. " That is what the Athenians used to worry about, " says father. " And how! " adds big sister. " Let ' s go for a drive with the new brakes. " Hester Williams, Form Matric I. [26J TO MY DINGHY O most beloved nymph of breezes light, Of fair boats thou art fairest of all fair. Thou floatest like a seagull in the air; Upon the azure lake thou shinest bright. Before the wind in triumph thou dost tear. Until there ' s little mainsheet left to spare. Urged on by thy sweet bosom-friend, the tide. For down the lake thou joyfully dost ride, ' Tis hard for other boats to keep apace With thee, when proudly thou dost sail so swift.

Marian Francis, Form IV a. FLIGHT THE hot sun blazed down relentlessly on the already parched field of the airport at Buenos Aires. There was little sign of life visible to the eye, save, where a powerful triple-motored ' plane of silver hue was warming up, preparatory to her flight to Santiago. At length, cars began to arrive and some few passengers, seemingly wilted by the heat, boarded the plane, with what appeared to be much effort, even though the ' pl ane ' s steward, dressed in crisp white, stood by, lending a helping hand. When all were abroad the stool was removed, the door closed, and the signal for departure was given. The propellers, which had been idly revolving, now turned into whirling dynamos, and with a roar of mighty engines, the aeroplane moved, first slowly, then, with gathering speed down the field until she rose gracefully from the earth, winging her way on high, looking like a great silver bird, with the sun ' s rays beating on her. [27] In the small cabin for the steward, behind the pilots, stood Arthur Wemyss, looking over the passenger list. " Mmm, " he thought, " not many passengers tfiis trip. Mrs. L. Carlton, and daughter, I guess that is the lady witli tlie little girl, John Steele, steel magnate, Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Horton, M. O. (Clarke, archaeologist, he does look rather absent-minded, and Miss Lorna Grey. Tliat ' s all. I guess I had better pay them a little visit and get acquainted. " With which, he went into the main cabin to see if all were comfortable, speaking reassuringly to the inevitably nervous ones. The sun was still shining brightly with the blue sky above, and the patcliwork quilt of earth below. But suddenly all this was changed. Tlie sun disappeared and the earth vanished from view. On all sides the ' plane was enveloped in a dense mist. " Dirty weather ahead, " murmured one pilot to the other, and with his words the ' plane balked like a frightened horse, with the sudden onslaught of wind and rain, as it tore at her. In the main cabin all was quiet, save for the sobs of the little girl, whose mother was trying unsuccessfully to comfort her. The archaeologist, who had been reading, looked up from his book with a surprised, " Dear me! How bothersome! Now I c an ' t read. " The young couple were looking rather nervous as were some of the others. But the steward with a smile, and cheery manner, helped to dispel their fears. There came a low, but increasing murmur of thunder, and then a startlingly close flash of lightning, showing the peaks of the Andes not far below. " Can ' t we rise over it? " asked Mr. Little. " I am afraid not, sir, " answered the steward, " the wind is too great. " " Will it delay the ' plane much? I came by air to save time and instead I will lose it. " " The pilots are doing their best, sir. " In the pilots ' cabin sat the directors of the ' plane, responsible for the safety of all those aboard. One, with a worried look, turned to the other. " Do you hear anything? " he said. The other with a smile replied. " I hear a lot of noise. Why? Don ' t you? " " I don ' t mean that, " was the reply. " But listen. " There was a faint miss in the steady hum of the engines. It was hardly audible but to the keen ear of the mechanic it was at once apparent. " Which motor is it? " asked one of the other. " ' The main, I think. " " Well, if it is, we have a fine chance of seeing Mother Earth alive in this storm, " was the encouraging answer. Gradually the misses of the engine became more and more noticeable, and then with a moan like that of a dying dog, the main engine ' s propeller stopped. The plane, without its help, was buffetted by the sudden gusts of wind and shaken by unexpected air pockets. In the main cabin the fear of a crash was written on all the passengers ' faces, and naught that the steward could do would allay their fears now. The plane was borne hither and thither on the wings of the storm. One pilot said to the other, " This will not last much longer. The plane cannot stand it. If we do not come out of this storm soon, well, — " he left his sentence unfinished. For what seemed hours the storm went on, black clouds were above, below and around. Fifteen minutes later the great silver bird taxied slowly to a halt on the field of the Santiago airport. The Han)e bla ing sun was overhead, while the whitewashed buildings fairly quivered wilii llie h ' al.

Now one fine day, up came Little John And said to his master dear " The sheriff is having a shooting match And challenges you to go near. " Full loudly laughed bold Robin As he said to his merry men all " Array yourselves in different clothes For we ' er off to pay a call. " Then spake the sheriff to his lady " Methinks the villain ' s not here, For while he is brave in the forest Here he would run like a deer. " When Robin arrived at Nottingham town He and his merry men tall He looked just like a beggar As he awaited his turn with them all. He placed his shaft in his stout yew bow His aim was good and true The bow it twanged, the arrow flew And hit the round spot of blue. When Robin arrived at Sherwood About the break of day He wrote a note unto the sheriff Explaining about yesterday. " May heaven bless thy grace this day Say all in sweet Sherwood That you did give the prize away To merry Robin Hood. " Peggy Capps, Form IIIa, [30] RUDYARD KIPLING RUDYARD KIPLING the " Bard of the Empire " was horn in Bombay in 1865. He was sent home to England and at seventeen returned to India. He hegan to write at Lahore; he wrote of things England knew and understood because at that time many people had brothers or fathers out in India. Kipling knew India and loved it. He knew the natives and their ways. He felt all the thrill of the life of the few white men among the millions of Indians. He wrote stories of their life, and of men whom he had known who could not leave it, who loved the dusty plains and the hill stations, just as he did, but who could not express their love. People who knew nothing of India read his stories and enjoyed them; and Kipling wrote a very short poem to those who knew, about those who did not know " I have written the tale of our life For a sheltered people ' s mirth. In jesting guise but ye are wise, And ye know what the jest is worth " . In prose and poetry Kipling has poured out his love of England and all she stands for. He understood the common soldier, sailor and peasant and although at times he seems almost to idealize them they are delightful to read about. I think he held foreigners rather in contempt, just as his British sailors did. No one has ever written better short stories than Kipling; they won him his fame and rightly so. He has filled these tales with all his love of life, crowded and full of joy. He makes us feel the thrill of hard work well done, of long hot marches and of lonely nights in the desert. Kipling knew that if we set out looking for adventure, adventure would come. After reading Kipling we feel fired with his enthusiasm, we long to got out and do things, and we feel what fun it would be ta be men together in some great adventure. In his animal stories Kipling is at his best. He loved all animals whether wild or tame and he understood them. The thoughts and intelligence of his animals do not seem unreal because he has so skilfully taken their possible feelings and enlarged and explained them. There are good and bad animals just as there are good and bad human beings. In fact, in the jungle there is a group living as we live among conflicting desires, hates and loves. When Kipling created Mowgli, he created the ideal of many a boy. Mowgli lived a wild life among wild beasts. He could swim, jump, climb and run better than any in the jungle. He had a great rock-python, a panther, a bear and the wolves for friends and he outwitted his crafty enemy the tiger. " How the Camel got his Hump? How the Leopard got his Spots " and many others were written for children yet men and women of all ages read them and the older one grows the more one finds in them. The greatest tragedy in Kipling ' s life was when he lost his son. His son was only [31] eighteen when he was reported missing after Loos in ' 15. Tliey we il l)iroug}i all the wards asking if anyone had seen Lieut. Kipling, but no one had. This has made Kipling bitter and a little fierce, but in his earlier days he had no trace of bitterness in him. In his humorous and refreshingly active way he taught us that romance and adventure are not things of the past. He sliowed us that a pounding steam ship is as interesting as a gliding tea clipper, that the passing of the horse is not the passing of romance. This is the feeling which runs through all his work and is summed up in the two lines — " Confound Romance! .... and all unseen Romance brought up the nine- fifteen " . Jean Scrimger, Matric. 1.

THE GUILTY CONSCIENCE IN the spring of 1910, Sir Peter Treherne was robbed of five thousand pounds and what was identified as the body of Albert Evans, his butler, was found mutilated beyond recognition. The head was almost severed from the body and it was because of the clothes and a certain signet ring which Evans always wore, that they were able to establish identification. Sir Peter ' s valet Myers had disappeared the night of the robbery and no trace of him could be found, although as the police had definitely concluded he was both the robber and the murderer, they were doing their utmost to unearth him. In June 1935 Denis Charwell entertained a week-end party of men friends at his country cottage in Huntingdonshire. It consisted of Sir Augustus Mannering, a noted botany expert, Wildthorne Peel an Australian millionaire, and Professor Anthony, a very old friend and a student of criminology. Into this congenial group came Denis ' Aunt Agatha Treherne. Her arrival was most inopportune, but Denis had to make the best of her unexpected visit. Aunt Agatha made no effort to be agreeable, on the con- trary she showed a keen disapproval of the two strangers. It was hard to say which of the two slie disliked the most, for she pronounced Sir Augustus to be a fraud and a snob and Peel to be a very common man with an atrocious colonial accent. She repeatedly contradicted Sir Avigustus and she snubbed the Australian continually. In fact the even- ing of her arrival was unpleasant for the whole party. The next day Denis ' dog died in a most mysterious manner, after eating a cake from [33] Aunt Agatha ' s tea-tray. No one but Professor Antliony would listen when slie insisted that someone was trying to poison lier. He, however, without disclosing anything to the rest of the party, discovered that the dog had died from strychnine poisoning. But who could wish to poison Aunt Agatha and also where had the strychnine come from? When no one would take her very pointed accusations seriously, she retired to her room in high dudgeon. That afternoon the old lady sent for her nephew and the professor, and announced that the wealthy Australian was none other than Albert Evans, Sir Peter ' s supposedly murdered butler in the Treherne Case of 1910. Denis thought that his aunt ' s mind wag wandering, but the professor saw in her wild declaration a motive for the attempt on her life. Evans had murdered Myers and had mutilated his body beyond recognition, he had then dressed the corpse in a suit of bis own clothes, had put his own signet ring on his finger and had made his escape to Australia, with the five thousand pounds, quit- successfully. Twenty-five years later he had come back to England, an Australian mil- lionaire. He had met Charwell, and not knowing that he was any relation of the Tre- herne family, had accepted his invitation for the week-end. When Aunt Agatha appeared (she had lived with her brother at Treherne Towers all her life) be was very much taken a-back and from her suspicious manner gathered that she had recognized him. W ith Aunt Agatha around, bis life was no longer safe, and be resolved to murder her before she openly accused him. But Fate had intervened and Denis ' dog had received the poison intended for Aunt Agatha. All this Professor Anthony told to the guests downstairs and just as be bad finished. Peel, or rather Evans to give him his right name, slipped a large ring oflf his finger, and before anyone could stop him, had swallowed the poison concealed in it. A few hours later, after the man had died, the professor examined the ring and discovered, as he had thought, that it contained strychnine, and that therefore it must have been a drop of this which Evans had used when trying to murder Aunt Agatha. Aunt Agatha herself bad not known the former butler when she first saw him, and if he had not terrified her with attempting to take her life, she never would have remem- bered him or the murder of 1910 at all. His great mistake was in thinking that she had recognized him, while in reality she had no idea whatever of bis real identity. Betty Brodie, Form Upper Vi. [34] THE CLOTHES OF GRANDMA ' S TIME My Grandmama went walking once To take a little air. She donned her " bran new, " walking clothes And did indeed look fair. Her clothes were then the newest style With flounces, frills, and bows. But how she managed not to trip, Why, goodness only knows! She kept her head right in the air, A smile for everyone; But now she laughs when she recalls What then she might have done. But we must all remember well. We must not make a fuss, That we ' re not made to fit the clothes But the clothes are made for us. Irene Lawes, Form Upper Vi. [35] SUNSET Paddling into the sunset, just as tlie sun sinks low, When the lake is clothed in shadow and the world is all aglow Aglow with the dying sunset and the heauty all around, The shiny green of the pine trees, the dusty warmth of the ground. The mist on the lake rises slowly, enveloping it like a shroud. And the pine trees shadow the lake, tall and haughty and proud. The wind plays a little melody, and goes shivering on its way. Whip-poor-wills echo the tune and mark the close of one more day. Then the first little star peeks out of the dust, twinkling through the night. Casting its sparkle across the lake, soft, yet clear and hright. The lake is dark and eerie and the night-hird gives its cry. And ever-changing, fleecy clouds move swiftly across the sky. At last all fades but the memory, that always lingers on The sight remains forever when other scenes are gone. The clouds are tinged with purple, they are mauve, and blue, and gray, And soon they will fade into darkness, to await another day. Anne Thom, Form Upper V-2.

REGULAR CUSTOMERS THESE mornings, when the sun rises at such an early hour, the inhabitants of he little wood next door get up with him. Their first thought on awakening seems to be breakfast and they waste no time in getting together and causing a general commo- tion until their needs have been attended to. They perch outside my window at about 6 a.m. and do their very utmost to wake me up and let me know that they are eagerly waiting outside the restaurant to be served. Nothing appears on the window sill or the bal- cony for them until about 8 a.m. but, hungry though they be, they have a nice sociable little gathering in the branches. Sparrows are such little gossips and when there are abovit fifteen of them, as there usually are, they make a terrible noise, each one trying to chirp louder than the other. Throughout the winter my little neighbours, mostly sparrows and squirrels, have been accustomed to find something in the way of breakfast on my balcony. By that I do not mean bacon and eggs but something out of the bread tin. Bread is appreciated by the birds and the squirrels provided the latter have not become spoiled by things they like better. Cake is preferred by all, especially if the icing has not been removed and peanuts are enthusiastically received by anybody with grey fur and a bushy tail who gaily springs from branch to branch. If you dig down into your coat pocket, you may discover an old fruit drop that has been there for many a month and has accumu- lated some fluff from your pocket ' s interior. In this condition it does not look very appetizing to you but among the squirrels it is considered a great delicacy, well worth fighting for, even if a large piece of a ridiculously small ear is bitten out by a spirited competitor. The squirrels sometimes turn up their mouselike noses at the sight of the plain stale bread that has been put out for them but they readily sit up and take notice if it [37] has been crisped in the oven or if the bread is buttered. If you are fond of peanut butter sandwiches and do not like the crusts, spread the peanut butler to the extreme edges of the bread and cut off the crusts, then the wider the margin you leave, the more your guests will like it. Peanut butter is a treat of treats. The matter of competition is very important among the squirrels. If a squirrel discovers some peanuts, he does not call his friends and relations to come and help him. Nothing is further from his mind. He just sits down and works feverishly until he has finished the lot. After that, if he still has any appetite left, he comes to the window and bows. If I happen to see him, I dash to the peanut bag and bring another handful while he watches, still bowing with polite expectation. Then I hold a peanut between my finger and thumb and he creeps up and snatches, moves away to a safe distance and demolishes it. I put the remainder on the window sill and he comes back and starts all over again. If other squirrels come along, the original finder of the treasure considers it his exclusive property and refuses to share with the others. I have seen one of them hold off five others while he eats. The others do not unite against the one in power. Each in turn runs quickly past him while he just glares at them all. This goes on until there is nothing left to eat. It is a different procedure with the birds, most of which are sparrows. They lack the courage of the squirrels. One little sparrow perches on the balcony railing, sees some breadcrumbs and flies away to get another sparrow. The two then perch on the railing and move their heads from side to side or rather round and round as if they were doing an exercise to take off double chins. Satisfied that it looks safe, they drop down, pick up a crumb each and fly away. I suppose they go off and tell their families for soon they flock over in swarms and presently all the bread will have disappeared, likewise all the sparrows. The squirrels do not bother the birds as a rule. One day last winter, I saw a bird on the ground pecking at a piece of bread. A hungry looking squirrel crept silently up to him and pounced; simultaneously the sparrow jumped into the air and, from a nearby branch, watched the squirrel eat his crust. We had a very unusual visitor last winter: a big grey owl. For reasons best known to himself, he only came on Tuesdays and Fridays, but he would perch all day on a branch in the coldest place he could find. The squirrels played about above his head and the sparrows gathered on another cold branch and loudly discussed him. He cast disapproving glances at them occasionally but remained where he was, his feathers blow- ing in the bitter north wind. If it became too cold where he was, he dropped down to a lower branch without using bis wings, just dropped. Now thai the spring has come my regular customers are busier than ever building nests and looking for worms but they still come to the restaurant. I must go and put out som ; cak(; for I hem now.

And when he came to our fair town He would not tell us why. He saw our gay Eliza Grey And kept his eyes upon her. And then we heard him slyly say, " Upon my word and honour. [39] That damsel there so hrifiht an(J fair. Shall be my bride ' fore morM, And she my noble crest shall wear As it has ne ' er been worn. " He kept his word, that villain Brown, And they were wed that night, And all the villagers did frown At poor Eliza ' s plight. Oh poor. Oh poor Eliza Grey! He made her sad and weary. Where once she bad been bright and gay She now is glum and dreary. Now please take heed to what I say . And do be wise and wary. And always think of poor Miss Grey When you are going to marry. Marie Fisher, Form IV-a. JONATHAN SWIFT ON FIFTH AVENUE As the sky line of New York came into view, Jonathan Swift gazed at it in wonder from his stratosphere balloon. Such gigantic buildings were surely not the work of humand hands. Like Gulliver, he must be approaching some land of Brobdingagians. But when he landed in the middle of the forest of skyscrapers, he discovered that the inhabitants of the city were ordinary people like himself, although dressed in a some- what different manner from what he was accustomed to. A little boy came running up to him. " My child, " said Jonathan Swift, " Would you please inform me what territory 1 am treading upon and who the inhabitants of this region are? " The boy looked puzzled. " Oh ask the bull over there, " he replied, as he leaned down to examine the working of the machine. Bull! Then this perhaps, was a land like that of the Houyhmms, where anima could speak. He looked around, but seeing no bull, approached what he took to be a policeman of some kind, and asked him: " Sir, could you tell me where there is a bull who can talk in this vicinity? " The policeman ' s face grew scarlet. " You, big boy, " he roared, " That ' s what get ' s my goat. You look to me as if you ' d been kicking the gong around. Scram. " Jonathan Swift backed away in some confusion. There was not much to say to a stream of language, hardly a word of which he could understand. He returned to his straloMpheri(! machine, around which a large crowd had gathered. The Dean was in no very genlh; moo i, and one maTi who was on the point of entering the machine, arousec! his n " Sir, " he shouted, " Will you |)lea8e refrain from trespassing upon my vehicle of transfiorlalion? " From Homewhere a voice in the crowd came up: " He ' s cuckoo. " A 1 40 I discussion as to whether he was loony, cuckoo or had bats in his belfry was going on, when Jonathan Swift interrupted: " Gentlemen, I would have you undestand that I am not an ornithological specimen of any kind, but a loyal subject of King George the Second, like yourselves. " At this statement, a howl arose in the crowd. Suddenly the policeman burst through it and rushed up to the stratosphere. " Say old timer, " he yelled, " That ' s where you have got the wrong number by ten, if you think we ' re birds of your feather. You better step on the gas if you don ' t want the cops in your wool. " " But, sir, ' pleaded Swift, " You cannot realize who I am. I am Dean Swift, Swift — Dean Jonathan Swift. " This statement was followed by a blank silence. Suddenly a voice in the first row exclaimed: " Why, the guy ' s clear gone. Swift was an old fellow who lived — Well, he was a goner long ago. He wrote tales for the kids, and some pretty thin stuff, if you ask me. " The man whom Swift had called off the stratosphere, now spoke up in a sneering voice: " D ' you think he ' s of¥, or is he only trying to pull a fast one? " This gave rise to a general discussion. Suddenly two men rushed through the crowd with long black instru- ments in their hands. " Say, old fellow, " one of them called. " Let me get a shot at you. You ' ll be a hot bit in the Mirror. " The Dean was not a coward but he was not going to be murdered in cold blood, no matter what mirror he was in. He began to rise as quickly as he could, among the shouts of the crowd. He looked down at those whom he had thought were his colonial cousins. English speaking they were, to be sure, yet there had been little communication possible. " Veritably, " sighed the Dean, " They do so dis- tort the English tongue, that in a manner of parlance, they speak another language. " Hester Williams, Form Matric. I. " p. ElbCR VENI, VIDI ,— The Romans were a brainy crowd Of Laws and buildings they were proud. They had large noses on their faces Of which there are to this day traces. J. Caesar was their Emperor, He landed on the British shore. He marched his army all through Gaul Then wrote a book, well known to ail. The way the Romans talked is fine. But too hard for a brain like mine. But this I know, I have it pat. It is, amo, amas, amat. Peggy Elder, Upper Vi. [41] FASHIONS IN DOGS I SOMETIMES wonder whether, if Addison and Steele were alive today, tliey wouhJ prove effective critics of the follies and foihles of our times. In their essays in the " Tatler " and the " Spectator " they commented on the foolish and harmful fashions of their day, and they were instrumental in bringing duelling into disrepute. Today, how- ever, we read newspapers and magazines in order to learn of Captain So-and-So ' s flight to New Zealand and the newest style in hats. We are extremely thickskinned and inured to criticism. Nevertheless, we are no wiser than the fops and flirts of the eighteenth century. We laugh when we read of their foolish customs but what amusement they would have de- rived if they could have read ours! The belles dotted their faces with black patches — the Whigs patched on one side of the face, the Tories on the other. We are less interested in politics so we wear initials on our purses, initialled bracelets and clips and initial pins on our hats. Our handkerchiefs, blouses and scarves proclaim that we are " Mary " or " Jane " or " P.K.S. " One of the most senseless fashions of our day is the habit of keeping dogs, not because they are wonderful companions, but because they match the colour of their mistress ' hair or look attractive when she promenades with them. Many of these helpless " pets " are not properly fed or exercised and annoy their owners because they are bad- tempered or even vicious. Every day on my way to school I meet a Chinaman in a white butler ' s coat, walking along the street with two pekinese. Man and dogs wear a bored expression and have a consciously martyred air. On fine afternoons you will meet a tall, slim lady leading a daschund by a fine chain. The dog ' s ridiculous long body and short legs make the lady seem even slimmer by contrast, but his collar bites into his little, thick neck and as he scurries along he looks longingly at the dusty strip of grass by the side of the road which invites him to rest his burning feet after the hard pavements. These toy-dogs are to be pitied, but for generations they have served no other pur- pose than to amuse their owners, and indeed they have no real use beyond this. The real canine tragedy is the Scottish terrier, treasured because his black chunkiness is so decor- ative. He has powerful jaws with which he can worry rats and his strong chest and muscles enable him to run for hours without tiring. There are hundreds of Scotties in every city who have never chased a rat and do not know what it means to run free in the country. One sees highly strung little fox terriers straining at the leash as they prance down ihc Hired. These dogs are, as a rule, gay and affectionate, but improper care turns them into snap|)iiig, Hiiarling lillle b(uiHls. I do iiol iiKiiM l)y lIi ' iH lhal il is cruel to kee|) dogs in the town; with proper care [42 J they will be healthy and happy; but if people who have no real love for dogs keep tliem as ornaments they are being; cruel. Dogs need plenty of exercise, sensible food and care- ful training. For this their owners must be interested in their welfare, understanding and patient. In other words they must love dogs !

[43] QUELQUE5 HISTOIRE5 FRANCAI5E5 LE BON VIEUX TEMPS JE pense quelquefois que j ' aimerais avoir vecu au dix-huitieme siecle en Europe, peut- etre en Angleterre ou en France. C ' etait le bon vieux temps ! La vie etait tranquille et gracieuse. Par d ' automobiles et d ' aeroplanes, moins de vitesse et de bruit. Les vetements etaient riches, charmants et pitto- resques — de soie, de velours, de satin et d ' etoffe d ' or et d ' argent. Si j ' avais vecu au dix-huitieme siecle j ' aurais mieux aime etre homme que jeune fille. Les jeunes filles avaient une vie ennuyeuse en ce temps-la. Mais les hommes pouvaient faire des choses tres interessantes. On pouvait etre soldat, voleur de grand chemin ou contrebandier. La vie etait plus emouvante que maintenant sans doute. Mais bienque tout cela soil vrai, peut-etre je n ' aimerais pas vivre au dix-huitieme siecle. On voyageait en voiture ou a cheval et les chemins etaient raboteux et pleins de boue. Puis la politesse froide et ceremonieuse de cette epoque m ' ennuierait. Les jeunes filles devaient etre obeissantes, prudes. Peut-etre il vaut mieux que je vive au vingtieme siecle et pas au bon vieux temps! Margery Simpson, Form Up. V. 2. JEAN ET LA GRANDE VILLE JEAN etait un petit gar on qui aimait beaucoup manger: des gateaux, des bonbons et tout ce qui fait plaisir a un petit garcjon. Un jour il fit une promenade dans une grande ville et bientot il eut grand faim, mais il n ' avail [)as d irgent et ne connaissait personne qui pourrait lui donner quelque chose a manger. II rnarcba, marclia et il eut soif. Le soleil battait sur la tete du pauvre petit garc on. Jean n ' aimait pas la ville. Toutes les automobiles qui font un grand bruit, demarrant, freinant, ( ' h ;oup8 des trom|)e8, les gens (|ui marclient tres vite, terrible. .|«!an H ' arn ' la devanl un niagasin el regarda la devanture. Ah, c ' etait une boulangerie [44] et dans la devantiire il y avail beaucoup de gateaux, grands et petits. Les yeux de Jean, allumes par ces beantes, resterent la longtemps. Tout a coup Jean prit une pierre et la jetant a la devanture, cassa la vitre. II allait prendre un beau gateau quand une voix terrible, derriere lui, dit: " Que faites-vous, gar- gon? " Jean regarda autour de lui et vit — un agent de police, qui dit: " Venez avec moi, enfant. " — alors Jean se reveilla. II avait fait un reve, Jean avait mange trop pour le diner ! " Et avec cela " dit I ' oncle, " il faut que vous alliez au lit. " Jane Seely, Form Up. V. 2. REFLEXIONS QUE de fois, grand-pere, lorsque je demeurais aupres de vous le soir, vous me racon- tiez de ces merveillevises anecdotes de votre bon vieux temps! Emerveillee, je me permettais a peine de respirer de peur qu ' il m ' echappe un mot. L ' ombre d ' une objection m ' eut ete alors sacrilege et je recevais vos sentences severes sur la folic du jour comme les paroles d ' un prophete. Je connais aujourd ' hui plus d ' un contemporain qui se moquerait de vos repriman- des et se croirait meme, homme d ' une civilisation perfectionnee, en position avantageuse pour satiriser sur les gaucheries de ses ai ' eux. II est vrai qu ' un vieillard ne peut jouir de ses derniers jours autant que de ces annefes actives oii, libre encore des infirmites de I ' age, il prenait part aux evenements au lieu d ' en etre spectateur, laquelle position kii permet d ' etre plus critique. Mais sommes-nous bien ameliores? Je ne crois pas que dans I ' aisance I ' liomme trouve des stimulants a la force du caractere comme il y en avait dans la vie rigoureuse d ' autrefois. Nos ancetres s ' imposaient par la force, et nous nous imposons par diplomatic. Mais les dipiomates excluent facilement la franchise et en somme c ' est encore le plus fort qui a raison. Ces hommes qui tiennent dans leurs mains les destinees des pays pretendent punir le lion en ne lui imposant que de legeres sanctions qui ne I ' empechent pas de pour- suivre son but en violant s ' il lui plait les droits des plus faibles. " Ah a pour les politiciens, s ' ecrient les jeunes filles, chez nous c ' est autre chose, il y a du progres! ' ' Pourtant a la saison des debuts on accorde libre cours aux rivalites et aux vanites frivoles qui donnent lieu a plus d ' un incident comique et a plus d ' une si- tuation precaire. Faiblesses d ' autre nature que celles des jeunes filles d ' autrefois aux- quelles il fallait epargner la moindre emotion de peur qu ' elles n ' en perdent connaissance, mais non moins considerables. J ' admets certes que I ' education soil beaucoup plus generale et que des avantages de toutes especes s ' offrent plus frequemment mais ceci est le fruit du labeur de quelques genies qui, apres beaucoup de travail et avec le concours des recherches precedentes ont apporte des ameliorations au mode de vie. Et nous, la masse, nous profitons de tout cela, de I ' heritage de nos ancetres dont nous nous moquons parfois. [45] Aurions-nous mieux fait a leiir place, sans I ' experience des ages anterieurs dont noue jouissons. J ' entends deja les protestations de mes compagnes et je les engage a consulter Lafon- taine dont les reflexions me sont souvent venues a la memoire en ecrivant ces lignee. A ses paroles peu flatteuses nous nous rendons compte de noire reelle valeur. Madeleine Parent, Form Matric 1.

DE L ' ETUDE DE FRANCAIS AL ' E(]OLE les eleves regardent la langue frangaise comme beaucoup de travail, en ve- ril( ' Irop de travail. Vrainieiil (|uand on conmience a etudier cette langvie quelque- fois on peiiHC (pi ' on ne poiirra jamais la [)arler courannnenl. Pendant longtemps je n ' ai pas (;on)priH comment les enfants fram -ais pouvaient parler une langue si difficile! Mais [46] quand on s ' occupe plus de ses legons de francais, il y a un certain charme a etre capable de le parler et de se faire comprendre par un Francais; mais avant de pouvoir reussir a cela il faut qu ' on saclie beaucoup de mots, de regies et de verbes. Les verbes seulement sont un travail prodigieux pour un anglais; (meme pour un Frangais, me dit-on), ils sont la terreur de tons les eleves et le desespoir des professeurs. Les regies sont la chose la plus absurde aux yeux des eleves. C ' est tres decourageant de penser qu ' on sail une regie apres un grand travail et puis de comprendre qu ' il y a des exceptions, quelquefois presque plus d ' exceptions que de mots reguliers. Quand on sait les exceptions il faut qu ' on sache les exceptions des exceptions! Pour beaucoup de personnes c ' est trop, les exceptions des ex- ceptions ne sont pas justes. Si on a le courage de continuer apres cela lentement, tres lentement, on approche du but. Et si on arrive a parler en apparence au moins comme le Frangais, quand meme on ne pent jamais parler si vite. Et on dit que si on pent enfin lire les merveilleux auteurs frangais, Voltaire, Racine et autres, cela vavit la peine de ce grand travail. Ainsi reprennent courage, tons les eleves qui etudient le frangais et peut-etre finale- ment quand vous aurez tout appris, vous aurez quelques annees pour jouir du resultat de ce travail. Peggy Tyndale, Form Up. V. 2. LES CANADIENS FRANCAIS DANS les montagnes vivent beaucoup de Canadiens frangais. Ils ont de grandes families, et comme les autres enfants en hiver ils vont a I ' ecole et ils restent chez-eux en ete. En hiver ils jouent avec les skis et les patins. Tons les Canadiens frangais se levent de bonne heure parce que la plupart sont des cultivateurs, et il est necessaire de se lever de bonne heure pour donner a manger aux animaux. Les petites maisons qu ' ils habitent sont tres jolies. Files ont toujours de la fumee qui sort de la cheminee. Les Canadiens francais s ' habillent toujours de couleurs voyantes. Mais ces Canadiens ont beaucoup d ' ouvrage. Les enfants marchent tres loin pour aller a I ' ecole. Les Canadiens frangais ont des plaisirs simples, et si nous vivions a la campagne nous serious plus satisfaits. En ete vient la fenaison et c ' est un plaisir pour les ecoliers d ' aider leur pere et leurs grands freres, a faire les foins. Les Canadiens frangais aiment la vie de famille, et ils vivent tres viexrx quelquefois assez vieux pour etre grands peres et arriere grands peres. Le plus beau temps de I ' annee pour les Canadiens frangais est le temps de Noel, quand ils partent de tres loin pour se rendre a la " Messe de Minuit. " Ils aiment entendre les vieux Noels, chantes par leurs enfants, et quand ils reviennent a la maison le " reveillon " les attend. Ah oui ! les Canadiens frangais sont les braves gens.

Derriere le jardin il y a mi champ du ble. Le Pere d ' Helene est dans le champ. II coup le ble avec une grande machine et deux chevaux. Helene pent voir la grande machine. Elle dit: " Je vais aller dans le champ aider mon pere. Quand elle est dans le ble elle est tres fatigue. Tout a coup une alouette s ' envole a ses pieds et monte vers le ciel en chantant. " O comme c ' est une jolie alouette " dit Helene et elle cherche le nid. Enfin elle trouve le nid et il y a six petites alouettes dans le nid. Pendant Helene voit les alouettes et leurs bees, son papa est en train de couper le ble. L ' enfant est endormie. Enfin I ' alouette s ' envole en avant de la machine. La machine est pres du nid et le pere le voit et quand il voit le nid, il voit Helene. Le pere et Helene retournent a la maison et le nid reste dans le ble.

[49] I A BIRD ' S EYE VIEW LITTLE robin hopped onto the window sill of Formll, Trafalgar School He was wait- ing for Mrs. Robin. Now Mr. and Mrs. Robin had been living in a secluded spot in the country where they had not seen or heard any human beings, and they had just lately moved to town. It was only the second day that they had been here, and having met no town birds, had not learnt that the queer, four-legged things that hopped around on two were human beings, also they had been too frightened of their great size to get near enough to hear them chirp. Of course these creatures chirped; it never entered his head that they used any other language. Suddenly he heard a strange noise; he hopped around and looked in the window, there he was surprised to see a whole flock of these very queer things with an elder one in front, perching on a chair, a desk in front of her. Evidently that person was the mother of all the others; the subject she had just read out " Arithmetic " was to teach them to eat worms. Much to his surprise all they did was work on pieces of paper all joined together. Acting for a play was next, though Mr. Robin did not know it. But when they began to wave tl)eir very thin wings about, and jump off desks; he thought it was a very clumsy beginning to flying. After that they did many other things that seemed very queer and unusual to him jiiHl as lie was beginning lo lliink tliat they were an altogether different race Mrs. Hobiii llcw down and lliey (lew off logetlier; Mr. Robin telling her wliat lie liad heard and K ' ,(;n.

To the orderly grand march at the end, A pleasanter night one never could spend. The balancing work was done with ease; I imagine that they could balance on peas Ball throwing was done with lots of zest, Although balls were dropped, they did their best. The marching (done by the thirds) was blent, ' Twould bring great credit to a crack regiment The Grecian figures were done with grace And brought smiles of pleasure to everyone ' s face. The girls of teen age had been taught how to skip And everyone marvelled that they did not trip All came to an end with a mighty cheer After many received their badges so dear. Janet Hamilton, Upper II. FRANZ SCHUBERT LONG time ago there was a musician called Franz Schubert. He was born in Vienna; on the 31st of January, 1797. His Father was a schoolmaster, and his Mother was a cook. He began to learn music from his Father when he was five years old; and at six years old he went to a music school. He went to the Court Chapel, and sang in the choir, and he stayed there until he was seventeen and taught the other boys to sing. He practised with the school orchestra and went to hear operas, and soon he began to compose music. He composed [51] a great number of songs and pieces for the orchestra, and tliouf li he wa8 often very fioor he went on writing music just the same. He was the greatest writer of songs t})e worhi has ever known. In 1828 he died suddenly at tlie house of his hrother when he was only thirty-two years old. Susan Murray, Form Upper T.

Hut llioiigli she had many rich things, and luid everything she wanted, she was Hi ill very sad, for her father wanted her to marry his Prime Minister. But the Princess llioiiglit him loo ugly. She liked a man from Scotland very much, but he was a great [52] coward. When her father said she had to marry his Prime Minister she was very sad. So in the night slie and her lover crept away. They went to a valley far away. One day a war broke ont, and the Princess ' father had to go and fight. The Princess asked her lover to go and fight too, but he said, " No, Princess, I am too sick. " That was not the reason, he was too much of a coward. So the Princess dressed up as a knight, and went to her father, who did not know her. She went to the battle, and fought so well that they gave her a medal. She then disappeared, and her father did not know where she was, for he wanted to find out who she was. The Princess showed her lover the medal, and he was so jealous that he tried to take it from her, and in doing so he fell down a cliff, and was killed. The Princess went back to her father and mother. She had a good look at the Prime Minister, and she thought him quite handsome. She married him and lived happily ever after. She got along much better with him than with the Scotsman. Charlotte Scrimger, Form Upper I.

We chose the theme of Spring-time, We painted flowers gay. We tried to make the birds rhyme. There wasn ' t much to say. The frogs were loudly singing, In the grove of birches white. And many birds were winging O ' er the trees in airy flight. [54] This mio;lit have been a great success Had our brother hekl his tongue, But we sadly feel we must confess. In laughter, liints he flung He really put us off the track, And in our indignation. We felt that if he got a whack We ' d find our inspiration! Isabella and Grace Wurtele, Form Upper II.

Over village and country City and Town For the King was good As well as kind. Just and faithful In heart and mind. His son now reigns. And the church bells ring — The King is dead. Long live the King. Barbara Brodie, Form Upper II. [55] THE FAIRIES ONE day a little girl was outside playing in the garden, when she met a little fairy, and the fairy said, " Have you got a mother or father? " The little girl said, " I have not a mother or father " , and the little fairy said, " Would you like to come to live with me in Fairyland? " " That would be lovely " , said Ann happily. Then off they went to Fairyland, and when they got there she saw the Fairy Queen and all the other fairies, and the fairies showed her how to point her toes and how to do fairy dances, and soon she knew how to do the dance the fairies were teaching her. Then they all danced around the Fairy Queen and the Queen said, " It is time for tea " , and then the Queen got twenty- two toad-stools, which were tables and they began to eat. They drank dew out of butter- cups. Then the fairy said, " It is time for bed, " so the fairy led Ann to the place where they slept, and in two minutes Ann was fast asleep with the other fairies. In the morn- ing Ann was the first to wake up, and she ran to wake the other fairies, and they all lived happily together in Fairyland. Sheila Sinnamon, 7 yrs. 8 months. WHEN I WENT TO FAIRY-LAND ONE night when I was tucked in bed, I heard a little knock on the window. I jumped out of bed, opened the window and guess what jumped in. A little fairy as tiny as a pin. She said to me " Would you like to go to Fairy-Land? " " Of course " I said, " Yes. " We went flying in the air and came to Fairy-Land. We ate fairy bread, beautiful fresli dew we drank. We went to the fairy-ring and saw the Fairy Queen. The Fairy Qii( ' ' ii look me lo tlie palace and we saw the Sleejiing Beauty with the Prince and the liul ; l)al)y. Sle ' |»iiig Beauly kissed and let me hohl ihe l)al)y. Then we went to Toy Land and saw my dancing doll. I kissed her and we went liome together after a lovely day and niglil.

They had a little bridge and under the bridge there was cool blue water. They have a big mountain called the Fujiama and they go and worship at the foot of this great mound. It is shaped like an ice-cream cone. They wear kimonos in the Japanese Garden. There is a volcano and sometimes it erupts in the summer. Their houses are made with brown, green, red and blue paper. The men pull the wagons on the streets and the people go for drives in them. Thej wear wooden sandals with straps on them. They have a lovely garden with many beau- tiful flowers. They have tall trees and large fields away from their homes. They have to sleep on mats, and when they go into the house they have to take off their shoes. The Japanese people are very pretty with their bright clothes and shining black hair and eyes. Thus ends my story. Jacqueline Hohlstein, 10 yrs. 5 months. MR. WOLF NCE upon a time there lived a Wolf. The Wolf had a house in the woods. Mr. Wolf had a friend whose name was Mr. Fox. One fine morning Mr. Fox came to see Mr. Wolf. " Hello ! Hello ! Mr. Wolf. How are you this morning? " " Oh! fine, how are you? " " Oh! I am fine. I came over to see if you would like to come to my new house. " So they both went to the new house. The house was brown and yellow. They talked all morning. Mr. Fox asked Mr. Wolf to stay for lunch. He also asked him to stay all afternoon. After a while Mr. Fox asked him if he would live with him. Mr. Fox ' s house was big enough for two. That night the roof blew off Mr. Wolf ' s house. One day after a while, a bad wolf came and began to fight. Mr. Fox said, " Stop ! Stop! I know a very big, big wolf. " " Where is he? " said the bad wolf. " Follow me, " said Mr. Fox. They went to a well, and the wolf opened its mouth, and its shadow in the well opened its mouth also. The wolf was so mad it jumped into the well and was drowned. And so this is the end of the story of bad Mr. Wolf and good Mr. Fox. Margery Todd, 9 yrs. 4 months. ESKIMOS IN THE ARCTIC Related by Bishop Fleming ON Friday, February 21st, 1936, Bishop Fleming came to Trafalgar School. He told us about the Eskimos in the Arctic. The ice-bergs were ys above and % below the water. He showed us beautiful pictures of the ice-bergs and the doctors and nurses. The Eskimos only have one mail a year when they get their Christmas presents. [57] He has to travel on snow-shoes sometimes — He made us laugli nearly all the way through the pictures. He said one day when he went for a walk he met some Eskimos. They were standing outside a church made of snow. Jt had a cross on top of it. This shows us these people think of Christ in the Arctic. We all enjoyed the lecture ver) much. At the end of the lecture we said a prayer for the Eskimos. Anne Lindsay, 9 yrs. 7 months. THE FIRST FIRE BIG Leg first found fire. There was a hig thunderstorm and lightning struck the trees. Everyone was afraid. They thought it was a hig animal. Big Leg fed the animal wood. Later on Funny Leg was passing hy. She saw the fire. She ran away. A little while later Big Leg got fond of the fire. He told his mother Funny Leg, not to he afraid of the fire. While Big Leg watched the fire his mother would go to sleep in a hig tree. So this is the story of the fire. Patsy Holland, 8 years, 7 months. LUCKY DIP AND CHRISTMAS CAROLS ON the seventh of Decemher, the Remove and Preparatory classes invited their parents to hear their songs and carols. Some of the songs were " This Old Man. " " Away in A Manger " , " Jolly Old Santa Glaus " , " I Saw Three Ships " , " The Birds ' Garol " and " Little Jesus " . We also had a lucky Dip. We all made about four little presents and wrapped them up in tissue paper. We had a basket in our room to put them in and a shoe in Miss Strawbridge ' s classroom. We made about seven dollars. We bought dolls and toys at Ogilvy ' s Store. We gave them to Mr. Lindsay ' s and Mr. Sinnamon ' s parishes. They wrote us and thanked us. Jacqueline Levasseur. [58] THIS year we were very lucky to have Miss Helen Ogilvie as our Captain again and Katharine Stevenson and then Peggy Chapman as our Lieutenant. We have had a very busy and happy year of guiding. We had many new recruits this year, several of whom received wings at their enrollment. The new members of our Company have shown a keen interest and a desire to learn new and helpful things. In the annual Dis- trict Guide Competition we came third though we were only a few marks behind the winner. Besides working, we have had fun playing together. In the beginning of November, the five patrol leaders gave a very jolly party. We all came in fancy dress and there was great variety in the costumes. After Miss Cumming had presented the prize for the best costume, we all started off on a treasure hunt. It was most exciting, running all over the school following up clues. The treasure was finally found in the Art Room. Afterwards the five patrol leaders gave us an interesting program in imitation of Major Bowes ' Amateur Hour. Then we had things to eat and danced for a little while before the party broke up. It was a great success and the five who managed it were awarded their entertainer ' s badges. On the whole we have had a very successful year. The Company has done well in everything it has undertaken, especially dressing dolls at Christmas time. The Second Class Guides have passed their badges well and we hope to have many new rec ruits next year to carry on the work of Guiding in our school. Mary Burt, Goldfinch Patrol. -GUI DE S [591 THE GUIDES ' DOG SHOW BECAUSE of the death of the late King, no Rally was liehJ thih year hy tlie Girl Guides. Instead, each separate district put on their own entertainment, if they wanted to. The Central District held a dog show in the A. E. Ogilvy property hehind the school on Saturday, May 9th. Many people came to it with tlieir dogs, for it was a warm, sunny day. It was not an ordinary dog show, for prizes were given for twelve different events. There were two rings in the centre of the grounds where each event took place, so that two things were going on at once. The events were as follows: the smallest dog; the dog with the shortest nose; the dog with the longest tail; the dog with the whitest coat; the dog with longest hair; the dog that could do the most tricks; the friendliest dog; the best-kept dog; and the dog with the cleanest teeth. There were also three races — for children over eleven; for children under eleven; and an owners ' and dogs ' race. For first prize, the dog got a blue ribbon, and its owner perhaps got a leash or a collar or a brush, etc. For second prize the dog got a red ribbon, and for third a yellow ribbon. The most interesting event was the dog that could do the most tricks. Some were extremely clever, but others were so distracted by the continual barking of other dogs, and by the crowds standing round that they could not attend to their master or mistress and would not do the proper trick! Each dog had a numbered label attached to its collar and all were, of course, on leashes. There were nearly two hundred dogs there of all sizes and breeds. A tiny puppy and a dog ' s bed were raffled. Ice cream cones and orangeade were served for refreshments, and after three cheers for Mr. Ogilvy for allowing the Guides to have his grounds, young and old, and dogs, left, after a very pleasant and successful afternoon. „ . , , Marjorie Kobinson, Uriole Patrol. WK started off the year with sixteen Brownies but as time went on the number decreased to thirteen. We were very sorry to lose Joyce Birks and Betty Futz- liarding(! wlio joined llie (iiiides after Christmas. All during tlie year a great many of the Brownies were absent from meeting due to sickness and the attendance was not good. Our tlianks to (laptain Ogilvie wlu) enrolled six of the Pack on Feliruary the fointeenth.

We enjoyed every one of them. Mrs. Gairn Milroy came to us on Octoher on behalf of the Federated Charities. Mrs. Milroy told us of the great amount of money needed and the good work done by the Federated Charities. She told a story of a little boy who ran away from school and was taken in charge by the Federated Charities and completely cured. We gave fifty-six dollars and pledged ourselves to sevnty-five dollars to be made up out of the next collec- tion. In November we were all delighted with Mr. McCowan ' s lecture on Plant and Ani- mal life in the Rocky Mountains. He showed beautiful views of mountains and especially Mt. Stephen. He had pictures of flowers, saxifrage, bunch berry and musk which mysteri- ously lost its scent all over the world a few years ago. He also showed icy trees, rock fossils of sea-shells and Indian dress and headdresses from Asia. There were deer of all kinds and a young cougar and Rocky-Mountain sheep and goats. We saw black bears of all sizes in fascinating poses and attitudes. Birds are hard to photograph but Mr. McGowan had picture of many kinds, some very rare. There were water fowl, horned owls, humming birds and that interesting and rare bird, the Osprey. He had pictures of little animals, too, of the badger and beaver and an amusing sketch of the Pack Bat which takes everything from corn to false teeth. Mr. McCowan does his own photo- graphy and his wife colours his pictures. From the beginning to the end the lecture was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. A few days later we had the pleasure of hearing a concert in the Gym by Miss Dev- lin ' s melodic trio, consisting of a piano and two violins. Miss Hazel visited us again on November 28th and showed us slides of the caravan work done out West. The roads are bad and many of them were flooded in the spring. The difficulty is not the soil, which is good, but that there is too much rain and the crops rot. The caravan workers teach the children, hold services and nurse. One can see how much there is to be done in the West of Canada. Near the end of the term we went to hear the Romilly Boy Singers at Tudor Hall. They had come straight from Wales under the direction of W. M. Williams of Romilly School. They sang the Welsh and English and folk songs among which were " Billy Boy " and " The Mountains of Mourne Roll Down to the Sea " . This was our annual visit to Tudor Hall and we enjoyed it more than ever. On December 18th, IVa, under the direction of Miss Hooper, put on a Nativity Play in two acts. Carols were beautifully worked into the story and the school joined in " The First Nowell " , " O Little Town of Bethlehem " , and " O come all ye Faithful " . The part of " Mary " was taken by Ann Dodd who sang very sweetly, Marian Francis was " Joseph " , the three Kings were Elizabeth Anne Kendal, Jane Harrison and Norma Bur- gess all of whom acted and sang their parts beautifully. The play itself was written by Miss Hooper and IVa and we congratulate them on their success. The next day we closed and Dr. Donald came to wish us a Merry Christmas. There was Carol singing by the little ones and Mr. Blair ' s classes and then we broke up for the holidays. [69] Miss Katherine Nickle came to speak to us the following; term about Christian Fellowship. She said that religion should not be a form or a duty forced on us at school, we should have God in our daily lives and in the little things we do. We should try to think for ourselves and pray our own prayers every day. It was kind of Bishop Fleming to come to talk to us for he is very busy indeed. He told us of his work in the North and we were surprised at the enormous area which he had to cover. The only way to reach the Mackenzie River District is by boat and aero- plane; once there, there is the station Shingle Point with its nurses and teachers. Here the Indians only come in once a year when the children are taught the love of God by yearly presents from the " Friends of Jesus " . Bishop Fleming had some beautiful pictures of the midnight sun on the horizon. The most Northerly point of the British Empire is Craig Harbour and there is a post with nurses and teachers. We were told that the Eskimos are attractive and kind hearted and some very trustworthy. In the North there are forty Mission Houses and hospitals; the hospitals, missions and travel are all very expensive and the workers badly need money. Bishop Fleming was very amusing and we laughed almost from one end of his lecture to the other, and yet h made us see the need and the merits of work such as his. On Hallowe ' en Miss Hicks and Matric. II. gave a delightful party. The Hall was decorated with streamers and ferns, balloons and pumpkins. Cakes, sandwiches and lime- rickey were served. There were Chinese, Arabs, Ghosts, Gypsies and " Quints " . Games were played and then there was a parade of dress. Everybody enjoyed themselves heart- ily and went home happy. On November 8th the Guides held a party organized by the six patrol leaders, M. Shore, V. Ker, M. Robinson, P. Elder, M. Mills and I. Lawes. First there was a grand march of costumes, then a treasure hunt after which refreshments were served. Then there was dancing and a delightful little performance was given, " Amateur Hour " . The six patrol leaders performed and Irene Lawes won with a Russian song. Everything went off without a hitch and everybody was delighted. MISSION REPRESENTATIVES Matriculation I. .

[79] THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION OF 1936 This year the Demonstration was altogether different from those of former years. There were many different kinds of drill; but dancing was the predominant feature. There were various types of Greek dancing. Among these were the waltz done by the boarders and Greek friezes performed by six of the senior girls. There were various folk dances; one of which was an Irish Jig put on by the boarders, and the Dutch dance was also good. The smallest Juniors performed in an elf-dance, which was very well done. One class did skipping with ropes, and another threw balls, to time, both of which were most effective. There was a Senior vavilting class, composed of twelve girls, who did apparatus work and vaulting in rhythm. Dr. Donald was the chairman on Friday niglit and complimented Miss Parker on her work. Mrs. Donald presented the badges to tlie girls who had maintained an excellent standard of work during the year. This year, Miss Parker has been teaching us rhythm and grace, and although we may not have reached our objective yet, we are still trying. [80] ' .I THE DEMONSTRATION {With apologies to A. Pope) Thou nymph of easy grace and nimble toe, Haste thee hither, and bend over low. That there may be no flesh of snowy white. To show between thy garments black, oh sprite. Then forth and vanquish all with beauty rare. Position perfect ' neath thy flowing hair. Yet from exertion faint thee not, fair sprite. Bear up and shout defiance to the night. And with a background of soft bells a-ringing. Of gentle voices or your heart a-singing, Trip out beyond the sound of rising din. To still a beating heart, or raise a chin In proud defiance. Mary MacKay, From Upper Vi. [81] TRAFALGAR SPORTS NEWS 1935-36 This has been a profitable year, in the Trafalgar World of Sports. We have won the Tennis Ciip and both First and Second Basketball Teams Cups. The girls have seemed keener and a great many have turned up at each match to cheer the players, not only of their own school but also the opposing teams. The Annual Tennis Match with Miss Edgar and Miss Cramp ' s School was played last year on our own courts and proved to be very exciting. Both teams played a very energetic game and the results of the match were as follows: The Second team of Miss Edgar ' s School beat us — 6, — 6. Our Second Team consisted of Peggy Tyndale and Mona Robinson. Our First Team with Barbara Barnard and Frances Earle won 6. — 6, 6. The winners then played and Trafalgar was victorious after three sets of hard play. We are very happy indeed, to have the Cup with us once more, and are looking forward to the match this year on Miss Edgar ' s courts. Every year until now we have always had a basketball match between the House and the School, but this year we decided to have a badminton match instead. The School team won, but we must admit that the House team was not playing at fvill strength. On April first the finals of the inter-form basketball matches were played off between Matriculation I and Form IVa. Form IVa. won the Cup with a very good score. This year, for the first time in the history of the School, we are going to have a Sports Day. It is to be held at Molson ' s Stadium on Wednesday, May 27th. There are to be relay-races and many other events. No one girl is to be the champion of the school, but all the individual marks are to be added up for the benefit of each Form. The school is to be divided into three sections, the Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors and the Form in each division which attains the highest marks is to be awarded a Cvip. THE INTER-FORM GYMNASTIC COMPETITION 1934-3 5 The inter-form Gymnastic Competition was held during the last term of school last year. The classes were marked on their everyday Gym lesson, and then the last lesson was directed by the Captain and Lieutenant of each form. In the Senior School, the marks were very close, and Upper V came first. For the Junior School, Form Upper IIa. won the shield. The shield for the best all-round Captain was awarded to Katharine Creelman. [83] AT THE SIX DAY BIKE RACE My mother looked at me and said, " Where are you off to now? " " The Bicycle Races Mother dear, " A frown came to her brow. But to his saddle back au;ain The plucky rider vaults; He will not let his partner down, A rider n ' er defaults " I don ' t approve of them at all; I wish you would not go. " " Oh, Mother dear, they are such fun, ' ' I answered, full of woe. " Well just this once, and don ' t be late. ' I rushed to get my hat; And soon in my accustomed seat With interest keen I sat. Torchy, Lepage and Audy, I feel I know them all. Oh which of them will win this sprint? Oh look!! Oh swell!! A fall!! And some of them are Germans, And some of them are Jews Americans, Canadians, And all but two mvist lose. But it isn ' t to the winners. That all tlie honours go. We cheer the smiling losers. Good sportsmanship they show. And we who watched them all the week. Have learned a lesson too. To cheer although you ' re tired to death. And smile although you ' re blue. Next year I ' ll take my mother, To show her what I mean. I know that she ' ll enjoy it And have a favourite team. Rosemary Kerr, Form HIb. [85] ■ THE HOUSE PHANTOM ONE night when all was still in the dormitories except for an occasional snore from a certain guilty young lady, there was a startling crash, and one and all sat up in their beds with a jerk. Even those who were very heavy sleepers awoke, for the noise was enough to raise the dead. Suddenly there was a bloodcurdling howl and immediately the brave little boarders disappeared under their bed-covers, from whence muffled moans issued, to the accom- paniment of more of these terrifying howls. When the heroic girls again attempted to go to sleep, there was silence for a short time, and then, to the horror of all, there came the clanking sovmd of chains being dragged along the ground. With loud shrieks the girls again vanished from sight. To a certain lady ' s disgust, the weird noise approached her cubic, but she viciously took up lier pillow and tlirew it at tlie approaching object. However, with a strange gurgling sound, this creature disappeared, and with a terrifying screech landed on the pillow of anolh( r startled female. After this llxsre was a horrible confusion of shrieks, moans and hysterica l giggles. When lliis iiMiiHiial disturbance had lasted a few minutes, some wise young woman decided to I urn on lli« light. With this light on the subject there came a long drawn-out [86] meow . . . and there, cowering in the corner of a cubic crouched Thomas, the cat, more frightened than anyone else ! On further inspection an explanation was found for the previous noises. The crash came from a row of medicine bottles and glasses sitting on the bathroom window-sill, which had been knocked down by the cat. The clanking noise came from a chain belt which had fallen on the floor and with which he had been playing. Of course tlie howls and screeches issued from him also. A quiet night you must agree, for the peace-loving boarders! Valerie Ker. MISTRESS MARJORIE {with apologies to Robert Southey) " You are bad, Mistress Marjorie, " Miss Randall once said, " For your room ' s in a horrible mess; You know well, Mistress Marjorie, it should not be thus, Now go and hang up your new dress. " " In the hours of the morn, " Mistress Marjorie replied, " I remembered to do what you said; And I picked up my books, and I tidied my drawers. And I started to smooth out my bed. " " You are young, my dear Marjorie, " Miss Randall then said, " But still you do not do so well As I think if you tried you would find that you could. And have all very neat for the bell. " " I tried very hard, " little Marjorie replied. But the sun came out then and shone bright, So I couldn ' t be bothered to do any more; And so that ' s why you see things aren ' t right.

A CAT FIGHT ' Twas one night after lights out And all through the " dorm " Not a boarder was stirring Not one little form. When all of a svidden From out of the gloom Came a sound of wild meowing, Like cats at their doom. We jumped out of bed In a terrible fright, Ope ' d wide all the windows And peered through the night. We saw on the gravel In front of the house Two wild figures rolling. Two cats, but no mouse. We picked up some bottles. Some tennis balls too. And then out of the window. They all quickly flew. Though none hit the mark. Some came pretty nigh. They vanished in darkness. And We heaved a sigh. Mary Burt, Janet Slack, Elspeth Maclean. THOMAS AND A DRAWING ROOM CHAIR THOMAS was going through the door of the drawing room following one of the boarders who was going to speak to her mother. Thomas cannot open any doors himself, so that is why he was following a boarder. After he got inside the room he began to scratch one of the arm chairs and the following conversation began. Chair: ' Oh! ' Thomas: What are you making those queer noises for? Chair: Because you hurt me. Thornas: I hurt you? why I hardly touched you. Chair: O no, you did not touch me; look at my poor arms, I am all black and blue from your scratching, and then you say you hardly touched me. Thomas: Oh, that doesn ' t matter you don ' t have to work or aivything of the sort. [88] Chair: Maybe you don ' t call having to hold people up work, I doii ' t know what it is then. As you can see there is a lady sitting on me now. Thomas: (Very carelessly) I like to be noticed. Chair: You would like to be sat on? all right come and change places with me. Thomas: Oh, I didn ' t mean it that way. Chair: Well, what did you mean? Thomas: I meant that I liked to be petted and for people to like me. Chair: You only think of yourself, you don ' t care whether I suffer or not, it is not right ! Thomas: You complain everytime I look at you. Chair: Any way, you are just an old grey cat not much use to anybody while every body is pleased when they see me. Thomas: Don ' t boast too much, pride comes before a fall. And he walked out of the door disliking the chair very much. The next morning when Thomas came in to see the chair he saw something tliat made him laugh, and laugh very hard. It was the chair feeling rather low; it had been sat on too hard and had broken. Barbara Smith. ELEGY TO THE OLD SONG The old school gong has ceased to sound The lesson hours each day. It worked here forty years and nine. At least that ' s what they say. It had a crack one day this year. I found it in the morn. I tried to bang it loud and long But it put me to scorn. [89] It only buzzed and squeaked a bit; It wouldn ' t even rino;. I had to tell Miss Bryan that The bell had ceased to sing. So on that afternoon they came And took it right away. Instead we have another bell Which isn ' t half so gay. I know I am conservative. But still, I liked the gong; And now the new electric bell. To me, just seems all wrong. Mary Burt. A VISIT TO THE HOUSE OF MARGUERITE BOURGEOIS ONE fine Saturday afternoon the second of April we headed for a bus on Guy Street, which took us to Marguerite Bourgeois ' . We got out after quite a long bus ride near a little park. After walking through the park for about a quarter of a mile we came to a little white farm and farmhouse. The date 1658 was written above the farm- house in black letters. The frames of the windows were red and the roof which had been put on since was made of tin. We entered by a little grey porch where we rang a bell. An elderly nun answered the door and we asked her if it would be possible for us to be shown over the farm. She answered certainly. We were led up the hall a little way until we came to a room. This room was used as a dining room, kitchen and sitting room all in one, but now is used only as the two former. The sister led us around the room slowly telling us about each relic which Marguerite Bourgeois brovight over from France. One of these relics was, an old clock which was attached to the wall by pegs clasped to the clock and driven into the wall. The fire place I think was most interesting. There was a big cauldron hanging onto a metal rod which could be swung backwards and forwards. They cooked soup and vegetables in it. There was a very long handled heavy saucepan and several toast racks also a place for baking bread in this fireplace. Next to the fire place was an old chair which had been through a great deal of use. The sink was overlooking the river and is now used for flowerpots. Many pictures decked the walls. We passed from this room along the hall and up two flights of stairs. At the top of one flight we saw the nuns at prayer and we looked at the altar. We went up another flight and came to a room just like an attic only whitewashed. Not one nail was used; everything was put together by pegs of wood driven into the logs used in the same way as nails. As we were led around this room we saw many spinning wheels, a loom and all the things required for spinning. In a cupboard at the far end of the room were many different kinds of dishes, pewter plates and soup plates, china plates cups, saucers, jugs, bowls and a few small baskets made by the Indians. There was one pair of sabots but the [91] bottom was nearly out of one of them. At tlie other end of the room there was an altar and on it were some statues and one which had been carved by an Indian. In one cabinet there was linen and other cloth which liad been the last woven on that loom. After looking around this room we went downstairs and out by tlie door which was barred to protect them from the Indians. Here we said good-bye to the nun. Tliis farmhouse was used by Marguerite Bourgeois as a school for young girls. These girls had come out from France to marry the French soldiers. They were taken to this house before they could marry these soldiers. So they would he able to keep the soldiers homes in order and be good wives. Marion Haney. Two Well-known Figures HOUSE ATHLETICS This year the following girls were elected as officers of the Athletic Association: Captain, Valerie Ker; Vice-Captain, Janet Slack. A Badminton team was chosen to play the school. The match was a victory for the school. Tliere was quite a good season of skating, although there was no hockey. There was an Ice (]arnival on our rink this year, which was much enjoyed by all. On Friday evenings Miss Parker taught us Folk Dancing with which we were all del igl lied. Deck Tennis and Badminton were played a great deal during the winter and Easier terms, ' rerniis was played during ihe AuUunn and Summer terms OUR SKATING PARTY N a cool, clear evening in February we had our first skating party. It was through the kindness of Miss Cuniming, Miss Bryan and Miss Randall that the party had been arranged. We were eacli allowed to invite a guest, the Prefects and some of the Old Girls being included in the invitation. That night a feeling of excitement filled the house. At last tlie time came when we rushed out onto the ice. Many of us, in the excitement, fell on tlie way down to the rink but did not seem any the worse for the bumps. The ice was at its best that night and looked just like a mirror with the light hung over it. It was a colourful sight to see all the skaters in their many and bright skating togs. On the ice everything was gay with laughter and talking. Girls would make long lines by holding hands and skating along till someone fell or let go. Many times tliree or four would fall together and in the scramble to help them up more would fall. No one was seriously hvirt and these tumbles were often repeated. After a time games were suggested Mademoiselle Bugnion, Miss Parker, Miss Scott and Miss Lendrum helped to organize them so that all could take part. Rows of dumb- bells were set up in the middle of the ice with very little space between them. The object of the game was to crawl under and over two strings held at one end of the ice, skate between the dumbbells up to a person at the other end, there light the candle which you had been given and try to carry it back still lighted. It was great fun watching everyone try to do this but only a few reached the goal with the lighted candle. When this was over we came in to have delicious refresliments before the open fire. We danced for a short time and then our guests began to leave. All seemed to have enjoyed themselves thoroughly and several girls said they were encouraged to take up skating agam. Janet Slack.

From an educational point of view tlie trip was ideal, at the same time it was full of real pleasure and enjoyment. From the moment we sailed from Montreal vintil we once more sailed up the St. Lawrence excitement was tense, with something new to be seen every minute. We all experienced the same thrill of " going abroad " for the first time, and as the S.S. Montrose moved gently away from the dock, we waved good-bye and threw streamers to our friends with the din of the orchestra behind us playing " Auld Lang Syne " . Then there was a rush to our cabins which proved very comfortable and pleasant, and we settled down to our first ocean voyage. After an excellent crossing we landed at Havre in a fine drizzle of rain, and drove to the station where we boarded the train for Paris and our first European Hotel. We were all amazed at the elaborate decorations, ornate chandeliers, and large mirrors which seemed to be everywhere giving the effect of enormous rooms. During our stay in Paris we spent most of our time sightseeing and visited all the places of interest, such as Versailles, Notre Dame de Paris, Place de la Bastille, Louvre Museum, Place de la Concorde, Napoleon ' s Tomb, " Eiffel " Tower, The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the arch of Triumph, and countless other famous places, most of which we had " studied " , hence our interest was doubled. It was quite an experience to have tea at one of the many " side walk " cafes and sit right out on the street at little tables and watch the people going by. Our next stop was Switzerland, and here we were speechless at the beauty of the country. The huge snow-covered peaks of the mountains with towns and villages nestled in the valleys was a sight we will never forget, and no matter where we went those lovely peaks were always surrounding us. The weather was " lovely " but very warm, and at Interlaken we enjoyed our first swim in a beautiful outdoor pool at the foot of the Jimgfrau. In Lucerne we saw the famous Lion and the city in general, then took the train for an all day journey to Germany. In this country we visited Munich, Nuremberg, Heidelberg, Wiesbaden and Cologne, and found them all very interesting. In Munich and Heidelberg we visited the Universi- ties, in Cologne we saw the old cathedral which is supposed to be the most beautiful piece of Gothic architecture in the world. In going from Wiesbaden to Cologne we had a lovely boat trip down the Rhine which was really fascinating. In Munich and Heidel- berg we were fortunate enough to see some well-known plays. The Merry Widow and [95] Twelfth Night were extremely good, CKpecially llie latter wliicli we saw in an outdoor theatre with the beautiful castle at Heidelberg as a setting. Our next visit was to Holland where we stayed in Amsterdam and were amazed to find hundreds of little canals winding in and out of the streets. From here we took a boat trip to Valendam and the island of Marken the only two remaining places whei ' -i the native costume is still worn and it was a beautiful sight, so picturesque and quaint. We were delighted with the scenery as we sailed down the long narrow canals. There were old men sitting on the banks fishing, and little children running along the paths, and the odd windmill in the distance, all of which made an unusual picture. After crossing the North Sea from Holland, we took the train to London, and this famous old city proved to be the crowning glory of the whole trip. There seems to be Eomething thrilling and inspiring about London, and here we visited countless places of historic note and fame, among them the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, The Parliament Buildings, St. Paul ' s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, the British Museum, The National Art Gallery, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and many more wonderful places. At the end of five glorious days here, during which time most of us went to two or more theatres and saw outstanding performances of Tovarich, Glamorous Night, and others, we drove up to Stratford-on-Avon, stopping on the way at Hampton Court, Windsor Castle, Eton College, Oxford, Warwick Castle, and finally Anne Hathaway ' s Cottage. At Stratford we went to see ' The Merchant of Venice ' in the new Shakespeare Memorial Theatre; we thought it was originally produced. The following day we took the train to Liverpool, and from here, sailed for home on the Duchess of Richmond. The Martlets Tour was efficiently conducted and chaperoned, and the accommoda- tion was good. A tour of this kind is excellent for your first trip abroad as you obtain a general idea of many places, and if travelling in future years, you know which places you prefer to see again. The verdict of the McGill Martlets Tour of 1935 was, " Perfect " . Amy Allan MISS BOOTH ' S WEDDING The School had a very exciting experience in the Christmas term which, I am sure we shall all remember for a long time. On INovember 30th in the Chapel of the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul Miss Booth was married to Mr. Aribert Arnold Bombe. It was a beautiful service and the bride looked very attractive indeed in yellow standing beside the tall bridegroom. After the wedding there was a reception at Trafalgar. There was a stately wedding cake on the table which was cut while refreshments were being served. Dr. Donald made a very witty and amusing speech praising the bride and bridegroom. He said he had not known Mr. Bombe as long as he had Mrs. Bombe but that already he had a very high opinion of him. Then we drank the health of the bride and bridegroom. A few minutes later they were showered with confetti as they made for the door, and drove away to New York. [97] MOYSE TRAVELLING SCHOLARSHIP As we go to press, news has just come from McGill tliat Jean Harvie has crowned her brilliant record in (Classics hy winning the Moyse Travelling Sc})olarshi[ wbicl) will enable her to continue her studies abroad.
