Marion Fox Elizabeth Atkinson [11] THE REVEREND Dr. GEORGE DONALD Chairman of the Board of Governors THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SCHOOL THE twenty-first of October — Trafalgar Day — has always been a marked day for the School, but this year it was greeted with a sense of gratitude and a sense of reverence. It was the fiftieth anniversary of Trafalgar School, and teachers and girls and Old Girls were all uniting to make it a memorable one. The present girls had no classes, and at eleven o ' clock they went in a body to the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul to a Commemoration Service. It was a wonderful sight, and it showed the spirit of loyalty and good will that exists, to see the church almost filled with girls, and teachers, and Old Girls and friends. The School Choir led the singing with Mr. Blair at the organ. Dr. Donald and Archdeacon Almond took the service. Dr. Donald gave an inspiring address on the things that were really worth while, and that we should value most. He said he was sure that we already valued Health, Time, Education, Truth, Honour, Loyalty, Friendship and Love, and that we knew why we valued each of these. To these he wanted to add first. Traditions. He said, " Everything has a background of Tradition, and so you must add to your list the Traditions of Education, and the Traditions of your School, and make it your business, whether in school or out of it, to be loyal to these traditions and to carry forward all that is true and great in them, and release them into the formation of the new future. " Then he said we must value most of all the Christian Religion, which could never be old-fashioned, but is " as young and strong as the dawn. It has the fresh wind of the mountains about it, and the power of our undying spirit within it. " His Jubilee message to us was: " Value all great and high things, value your traditions and your heritage, and value your Christian faith, for in these values lie the very issues of the best and happiest and most useful life. " After the service the Sixth Form attended a most delightful luncheon given by the Old Girls in the Assembly Hall. It was very amusing to the present Sixth Form as they moved about to catch little bits of conversation such as, " Why, my dea r it was not like this in our time, " or " Oh there is my classroom! How well I remember it! " There were there those who had taught, and those who had been taught, there were mothers and daughters and even grandmothers, and everyone seemed to be enjoying herself. At the end of the luncheon the Honorable Cairine Wilson made a happy and witty speech and said she was proud of being a Trafalgar girl. Anne Dodd, Matriculation I. THE OLD GIRLS ' LUNCHEON THURSDAY, October 21st, 1937 was a day of great activity. An early morning visitor would have been surprised at the silence that pervaded the school-house, and would have been still more amazed, when at nine o ' clock, instead of orderly lines of tunic-clad girls mounting the stairs to the Assembly Hall, for Morning Prayers, men arrived, carrying tea urns, and large parcels of all kinds. What could it all mean! The Assembly Hall, too, presented a strange picture. A number of Old Girls were [13] already there, arranging tables, and evidently making preparations for a luncheon. The Committee in charge consisted of Mrs. Gorrie (Catherine Vickers) Chairman, Mrs. Seely (Ruth Bosworth), whose three daughters were trained in the school, Mrs. Suther- land (Harriet Birks) and Jean Scrimger, and they certainly worked wonders with the Assembly Hall in a very short time. A long table, just below the platform, had a large basket of fruit, as a centre-piece, and hollowed-out pumpkins, filled with various shades of chrysanthemums, were placed here and there, giving a very festive appearance to the room. Immediately after the largely-attended, and impressive Commemoration Service, conducted, at noon, in the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul, by Rev. Dr. George Donald, the Old Girls and the members of Form VI proceeded up Simpson St . to the School. Miss Gumming and Mrs. Colin Russel, President of the Old Girls ' Association, received the guests at the door of the Assembly Hall, where a very delicious buffet luncheon was served to more than three hundred people. It would be impossible to name all Old Girls present, or even to mention those who have sent their daughters to their old School. There was one present, however, Mrs. Hartland MacDougall, (Edith Reford) a member of the first class when the school opened in 1887, who had not only sent her two daughters to the school, but her two grand-daughters, as well, one of whom, Sally Pitfield, is still a pupil. Three sisters, who were also members of the first classes, were present: Mrs. Stocking, whose two daughters attended the school, and Mrs. Henwood and Mrs. Townsend, who were so enthusiastic about the gathering, that they came all the way from Toronto for the occasion. After luncheon, the President, Mrs. Colin Russel, (Marjorie Lynch) whose mother (Gertrude Stevens) has also been an old girl, gave a friendly greeting to all present. Then Senator Cairine Wilson, of Ottawa, said a few words about the happy memories of her early school days. Every one enjoyed Miss Cumming ' s closing words. She spoke of the progress of the school during the fifty years, just completed, and paid a tribute to the work of the first Principal, the late Miss Grace Fairley, M.A., Edinburgh, who, she said, would have been proud of the school, with which she had been so long and so closely connected. We were glad to see Miss L. M. Hendrie and Miss C. L. Field, former members of the Teaching Staff, among the guests, but were sorry that three other old friends. Dr. Carrie Derick, Miss Lewis, and Miss Jean Samuel were not able to be with us. The departing guests were loud in their praises of the wonderful work done by the Committee in charge, and the ease with which every arrangement was carried out, and all agreed that we had had a very happy re-union. M. L. Brown. [14] As this year has been crowded with many eventful happenings, time has flown by and we are now in our last term. School had only just opened when preparations began for our Fiftieth Anniversary Celebrations. On Trafalgar Day we were given a holiday. In the morning we all went to St. Andrew ' s and St. Paul ' s Church where we had an anniversary service specially arranged by the Old Girls. Dr. Donald, assisted by Archdeacon Almond, spoke to us. He brought to our minds the great traditions which had been founded in the school and put before us high ideals which we as students must carry on. Following the Service a luncheon was given by the Old Girls in the School Assembly Hall to which the Sixth Forms were kindly invited. We enjoyed seeing many of the Old Girls whom we knew and also many Old Girls who have now children of their own at school. Very appropriate at this time came the founding of our new House system. So far the change has been most successful and we wish it success in the coming year. This year has also been a successful one in sports. Our two Basketball Teams finished the season without a single defeat, thus winning both the Cups of the Private Schools Basketball League. We began early in the winter to practice for the Inter- scholastic Ski Meet which was again held at Piedmont under the supervision of the Penguin Ski Club. The races this season were much more enthusiastically contested by the schools than last year. A second time we came home as victors bringing with us a beautiful award. This was the Molson Shield with the Penguin ' s Emblem carved in relief in the centre. It now hangs in a prominent place in the Gym and is one of oui proudest possessions. The best of luck to those working for it next year! The winning team, Grace and Isobel Wurtele, Dorothy Staniforth and Joyce Kendall, are to be con- gratulated for their racing and also Joy Symons who won the Junior Cup. The Demonstration was a great success this year and we wish to thank Miss Parker for all her hard work which made it go so well. We have had many interesting addresses this year. The first one was from Dean Cronkhite of Radcliffe College. She spoke about the great importance that should be laid upon choosing the right College. It should be chosen not because it was near or far from home but because it was most suited to the line of work which was desired to be [16] followed. Archdeacon Gower-Rees spoke to us on Armistice Day and Ash Wednesday. We had a very interesting address with illustrated slides by Bishop Fleming on his work in the Arctic. He showed us many interesting pictures of the Governor-General ' s first visit to that part of Canada. He went for the purpose of opening a new hospital which had just been completed. Miss Hazell again visited us and gave us more news about her work in the West. We also enjoyed illustrated lectures by Mr. Dan MacCowan on wild plant and animal life in Western Canada and by Mr. Humphreys on the beauties of British Columbia in his lecture " See Canada First " . A representative of the Scripture Reading Union came and spoke to us about its work. Dr. Donald also came several times to speak to us. We were very sorry that he was unable to be with us at the end of the first term but this was unavoidable because we closed school suddenly. We all regret very much that Mrs. Mitchell is leaving us at the end of the term. We are greatly indebted to her for all her work both in teaching and in promoting dramatics. We wish her every happiness in her new life and hope that she will come back to visit us whenever she is in Montreal. Our congratulations go to all those who passed matriculation last year, especially Jean Douglass and Ruperta Macaulay who tied for the Grace Fairley Scholarship. We are also very proud of Hester Williams who headed the Senior Matric results in the Province but we had great hopes after her brilliant results in Junior Matric the pre- ceding year. We have a large class going to write their final examinations this year. To all these we wish great success. We trust their happy days at Traf will always be remembered and that when our School reaches its second span of fifty years we may perhaps meet and recall our happy days. Anne O ' Halloran Janet Slack WiLMA Howard PREFECTS Head Prefect: Anne Dodd Elizabeth Anne Kendall Mar J OKIE Robinson Mary MacKay THE GRIER CUP Marion Mills Peggy MacMillan Jacqueline Whitmore FOR several years now the Grier Cup has been awarded to the most public-spirited of the Senior girls, who at the same time has maintained the highest standard of conduct, and has shown the greatest devotion to her work. In 1937 it was awarded to Faith Lyman. THE FORSYTH CUP MR. and Mrs. Lionel Forsyth have presented a Cup to Trafalgar to be awarded annually to the Senior girl who has made the most of her opportunities in her school years, interesting herself actively in the life around her, and showing herself friendly and helpful to all. In June, 1937, it was awarded to Janet Slack. [17] INTER-HOUSE TROPHY Presented by Mrs. Wynne Robinson (Claire Dunlop) [18] T better. We have always had a strong Form spirit in School but the Houses draw Senior and Lower School girls together and give them something to work for in common. The School was divided into four Houses which are called Fairley, Barclay, Ross and Riddell. The Heads of the Houses were chosen from among those of us who were Prefects. The division of School was done by lot and in this way the Houses were each comprised of girls from the Upper Second Form to the Matric classes. The matter of choosing a mark of distinction between the different house members was rather difficult. After much discussion it was decided that each House should have a colour and a small ribbon of that colour should be worn by each member. Fairley is distinguished by a red ribbon, Barclay by a green, Ross by a yellow and Riddell by a purple ribbon. The aim of each House member is to gain by work in studies, sports or other activi- ties such as music, art and needlework, points for her House. There are also points taken off for bad conduct and this stresses the necessity for all House members to be careful of their behaviour. Besides every day work and sports special basketball matches were played last term. These were most enthusiastically upheld by all the Houses. The Spelling Bee and General Knowledge Competition were keenly contested and greatly enjoyed by every one. We are very grateful to Mrs. Wynne Robinson who, herself an Old Girl, has pre- sented a Shield for competition between the Houses. This award to be gained makes working for the House much more exciting and we are all anxious to find out who is the first winner. Barclay House was named after the eminent Scotchman, the Reverend Doctor Barclay, D.D., LL.D., who was for many years President of Trafalgar School. Dr. Barclay was devoted to education in all its branches and Trafalgar was his " pet " school so we all hope that Barclay may become the " pet " House of Trafalgar. Dr. Barclay set a wonderful example in athletics for he was known throughout the Dominion for his high ideals of physical training. The House has done fairly well in living up to the excellent tradition that Dr. Barclay started. Many points were obtained at the Gymnastic Demonstration and some at Skiing. The Basketball matches were not so successful for us but that was not due to lack of enthusiasm for all the girls were very keen and we all have high hopes for the future sporting events. In studies Barclay House has shown itself capable of hard work. Some of the girls have done extraordinarily well and gained many points for their House. The Spelling Bee was our greatest success as Barclay House won both in the first and second round. There are also many girls who have shown themselves capable of hard work by making BARCLAY HOUSE Tende Bene et Alta Pete ' [19] articles for the Social Service work carried on at school. The Juniors have been most enthusiastic about this kind of work. In music and art we have done very well. The girls who are interested in that side of school life have worked very hard both for their House and for the School. The conduct standard has not been as high as it might have, but steps have been taken to remedy this and we look for a great improvement in the future. We were all delighted when we learned that Mrs. Leonard was to be our House Mistress. As we have been privileged to be the heads of Barclay House at its beginning, we would like to extend best wishes and a hope for success in years to come for Barclay House. Anne O ' Halloran, Marion Mills, Heads of the House. FAIRLEY HOUSE " Service before Self " It has been said of Miss Fairley: — " Hers was a noble face so strong and kind; And it was she who built Trafalgar up, And helped to make it what it is today — A happy place to all who use it well. " Miss Fairley was the first Head Mistress of Trafalgar, and although none of the girls of the House knew her, we all can still feel the great strength and the high ideas that she gave to the School. In the twenty-six years in which she was Head Mistress she devoted all her time and thought to the girls. She was a living example of our motto, " Service before Self " , and so we of Fairley House feel it an honour to bear her name, and realize that we have much to inspire us. Fairley House is now just four months old, and since the very beginning the girls of our House have shown a keen interest in everything. Scholastically we have done quite well, having come second at the first mark reading. In sports we have ma de a good start, too. Our very enthusiastic Basketball team came first in the basketball competition. There are fifty-two girls in our House and they all have their special interests. A great many of the girls are busy making garments for the Sewing Circle, and we shall have quite a nice collection to send out West. Then some of the girls are specially interested in Art, and others in Music. We are planning to have competitions of various kinds this term, and the girls are eager to enter them. Our House Mistress is Mrs. Mitchell and she is most kind in helping us in all our activities of the House. Fairley House is showing a great deal of spirit, and is determined to prove itself worthy of its name. Anne Dodd, Elizabeth Anne Kendall, Heads of the House. [20] ROSS HOUSE Suaviter in more, fortiter in re " We of Ross House are proud of our name, for it was Mr. Donald Ross who founded Trafalgar School for Girls. He had planned to found a school named Ross Institute in memory of his mother, but on purchasing a site for the school and finding that it was known as the " Trafalgar " property he decided that the name of his future school should be " Trafalgar Institute " . The aim of Mr. Ross was " the education of young women of the middle and higher ranks of society with special emphasis on religious and moral training as part of the curriculum " or, as he said, " to qualify young persons for discharging in the best manner such duties as ordinarily devolve upon the female sex " . Each and every member of Ross House has entered into this working group whole- heartedly and has tried to be worthy of the name which our House bears. We all feel that we are most fortunate in having Miss Bedford- J ones, who is a Trafalgar Old Girl, as our House Mistress. The House has found her an invaluable aid, and we are glad of this opportunity to thank her for her great help. At the last reckoning of marks, our House was fortunate in having the highest average. Marks were gained by our members for many different achievements and good general work. Some of our girls won gym awards, some gave in needlework for the mission in the West, some made outstanding posters, and some were members of the different teams. During the Lent term, we had inter-House basketball matches. Ross House came third in the series. This inter-House rivalry stimulates great interest, and we look for- ward to success in the Debates, General Knowledge Tests, Spelling Bees and other friendly contests now in contemplation. We believe that the instit ution of the four Houses marks an advance in the life and work of the School and hope that, in future years, our successors, as wearers of the yellow badge of Ross House, will justify the high hopes we have for the steady progress of our House and the maintenance of its position. WiLMA Howard, Mary MacKay, Heads of the House. RIDDELL HOUSE Facta, non Verha We of Riddell House are very proud of our name, because it came from the first Secretary of the School — Mr. Alexander F. Riddell. Mr. Riddell held this position for forty- two years from the founding of the School in 1887, and he always fulfilled hi? duties faithfully. He was a close friend of the founder, Mr. Donald Ross. We hope that we will always be worthy of his name. The House System was a new idea this year, and we feel that it has provided more interests in the School. There was great excitement on the day in February when Miss Gumming announced the names of the Houses, and then read out the names of the girls [21] who were in each one. Immediately afterwards the first House meetings were held, and then the Houses were firmly established. Riddell House meets in Miss Cumming ' s and Miss Bryan ' s sitting-room in the House. We are grateful to them for allowing us to use it. We have a meeting whenever there is something to communicate to the girls, such as competitions. These have been most interesting. One was a Spelling Bee which Barclay House won. There were five on each team. The Third Formers proved that they were the best spellers in the School! Then we had a General Knowledge Test with twenty-five very interesting questions. The results of this we have not yet heard. Where usually in tests in class, girls have only been able to compare answers afterwards with their class-mates, in this test, one could hear older girls and younger girls through the school talking about the same test. Earlier in the season the Inter-House Basketball matches were played. We came second, beating Ross and Barclay Houses, and losing to Fairley. The Gym. Competition and Inter-House Tennis Matches are still in store but we are starting to practice already. On Field Day, there is to be a game for the Houses which promises to be great fun ! In the first adding up of points, Riddell House stood third with seventy-nine points. We thank Miss Cam, our House Mistress, for her interest and help. She made out a list, after the first adding up of points, who had lost points, and those who had neither gained nor lost, which was interesting to see. Purple is our colour; and the motto which we chose " Facta non Verba " — " Deeds, not Words. " Janet Slack, Marjorie Robinson, Heads of the House. [22] OPPORTUNITY " Johnny, spell opportunity. " " Opportunity, o-p-p ... " and this word in his son ' s spelling, sent his mind back to a conversation over which he had been brooding. " Smith, we, the Citizens Committee, want you to head a survey, to see what oppor- tunities we can offer the slum boys of this city, opportunities to live a good, wholesome, clean life. " Afterwards Johnston had said, " You owe it to us, and to yourself; besides, it will pay your debt to the Padre. " He had promised to give his answer in a week. Johnston had laughed, " Duty calls, you know " , and left him. That lane, that was what had come to his mind, when they had asked him. That dirty, garbage-laden, rat-infested lane! His childhood playground, it had been. He remembered the day Tony had come and told him about a swell place to play. The " Y " he said it was. Just then Big Bill had come, and he said it was a " sissy " place. When Bill came along, Tony had run away. Then he. Smith, had gone home, and his mother had said something about the " Y " too. He had laughed her down and said he had better things to do. Better! That was a laugh! He remembered now how the corners of her mouth drew down, how she threw up her grey head. He ' d gone out that night. He met Tony — he almost went with him to the " Y " but Bill came along and yelled to him, and Tony ran away again. He crossed the lane and Bill outlined the plan. It sounded good. When they got there. Bill pushed in a window. The others went in and hauled out the till. They heard a noise and crept away. Behind a shanty they broke open the till. There were only a few cents in it. They all cursed, so did he. Then Bill handed out the cash, just a few cents each. He felt badly about taking it, but after a few nights, he did not care. One night the cops chased them. They caught a few of the gang, but neither Bill nor him. One night they tried a house. They woke the baby. That time they all were caught. How scared he had been on his way to court. His Mother was there; he hardly recognized her, she looked so broken. When he saw her, the Judge was speaking to her after the sentence had been passed. [23] Then there were those months in the Reformatory. He had gone from bad to worse there. When he got out, he had almost gone to his Mother, but the memory of her sorrow, and her beaten, bitter face, stopped him. He got in with a bad gang again. They " did jobs " all over the city. One day they tried a bank. They got caught at it that time. He landed in the penitentiary. There he got into the prison library. He started reading. It was good stuff. He was treated well there. He remembered the chaplain, the day they had talked in the library. Those were fine words. " Smith, each book is like an opportunity. It must be of your own free will that you accept and make use of it, otherwise you will not profit. " He was a wonderful man. He had beaten him at chess for the first time yesterday. How the " Old Man " had laughed. They ' d talked together a lot. The day he got out, the Chaplain had called him into his office. He said he could work on his farm for the rest of the summer, to get rid of that prison pallor. He had a swell time there. Up with the sun and slept like a log all night. One day after the first snow, the Chaplain came out and told him of a job he could have if he wanted it enough. He did. The Padre sat on the fence and told him about it, how hard the work would be. He did not care. Next day he went into town and bought a new suit with the summer ' s savings. He went to work — that was twenty years ago. The whole town knew his past. They had accepted him for what he was worth. Now he was personnel manager of his company, married and with a family. He knew now why J ohnston had asked him. He got up, leaped to the telephone, and told Johnston he would pay and pay with interest. What he had missed, he would make sure that no one else in this town would ever miss. Queer what that one word " opportunity " will accomplish! Lyn Berens, Form IVa, Riddell House. VIEW FROM MY WINDOW AT CAMP The upward thrust of sturdy pine. The purple mountains ' blended line. The golden gleam of shore line sands. The blue sky ' s fleece like shadow ' d bands Of filmy clouds, the green of trees At water ' s edge, a gentle breeze From the great Northland far away. The flight of loons that cannot stay; And all this beauty as one whole Is nature in her summer role. Heather Campbell, Form Va, Ross House. [24] TO SPRING Sing to the birth of Mother Earth, ' Tis Springtime! ' Tis Springtime! Sing to the birds, who, without words, Trill " Springtime! ' Tis Springtime! " Brooks are a- twinkling. Over rocks tinkling, — And trout dart to and fro. Suddenly gliding. In shadows hiding. Far from the fisherman ' s throw. Sing to the violet, the crocus, the tulip — ' Tis Springtime! ' Tis Springtime! Sing to the showers which freshen all flowers. For Springtime, in Springtime. Green grasses growing, Gentle winds blowing, White clouds across the blue. And willows weeping. Tiny buds peeping. Each morning are covered with dew. Sing to the seeds, to damp, fresh meeds. In Springtime, in Springtime. Sing to the frogs, a-croaking in bogs — " ' Tis Springtime ! ' Tis Springtime ! " Maple sap, glowing Golden brown, flowing Into the shiny pail. Trees of the Woodland Robed misty green, stand — Beautiful Springtime to hail ! Mary Lindsay, Form Vb, Fairley House. BRITAIN ' S OLDEST COLONY IN 1497, when Henry VII was King of England, John Cabot discovered the Island of Newfoundland which lies across the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The island being only 1,640 miles from Ireland, soon became very well known to the adventurers of the early six- teenth century. Its fishing resources brought many men from France, Spain, Portugal, and the West of England. Eighty-six years later, 1583, Sir Humphrey Gilbert took formal possession of the island for Queen Elizabeth. He raised the British flag on the shore of what now is the [25] capital, St. John ' s. Here on this historic site today stands a splendid memorial to New- foundand ' s sons who fell in the Great War. St. John ' s is situated on the east coast and overlooks a beautiful natural harbour. The entrance to this harbour which lies between two high rugged cliffs, is commonly called " The Narrows. " On the summit of one of the cliffs. Signal Hill, Cabot Tower was erected and named after the discoverer. It is used today to signal vessels and steamers coming to St. John ' s. When France and England were at war, a battery of guns com- manded the Narrows — relics of ancient cannon, gin-emplacements, and magazines can still be seen. It was, also, on the top of this hill that Marconi received his first wireless signal from Cornwall in 1901. Just outside St. John ' s is some very picturesque scenery. About three miles from the city is a beautiful park and playground, presented to the city shortly after the war. The park contains some small war memorials, also an exact replica of the famous statue of Peter Pan erected in Kensington Gardens, London. About sixty miles from St. John ' s is Harbour Grace, a small town which was once the capital. Near here in 1610 John Guy established a colony of settlers, who came from the West of England. Since then Harbour Grace has acquired some fame, by being the starting-point of several trans- Atlantic flights; some of the well known are Kingsford- Smith, Chamberlin, and Amelia Earhart. Some other places with historic interest are Placentia, on the south coast, known as the old French capital which was once fortified; Heart ' s Content, the western terminus of the trans- Atlantic cable laid in 1866; Ferryland, a small town on the south coast. Here Lord Baltimore established a settlement in 1627. He went also to the United States and the city of Baltimore is called after him. It is said by local tradition that he at some time or other returned to Ferryland and is buried there. The scenery of Newfoundland has often been likened to that of Norway. The island has an unusually large number of lakes and ponds. More than a third of the area is supposed to be occupied by water. Some of its bays and rivers run as far as ninety miles inland. The island is rich in minerals. Mines of iron ore, lead and zinc are being opened in different parts of the country. The greatest resource is the fishing industry, lobster, cod, salmon and other fish are exported to many parts of the world. Another important industry is pulp and paper. At Corner Brook, on the west coast, the International Paper and Power Company have a large mill, and export paper to the United States; at Grand Falls, mid-way across the island, the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company exports newsprint to such well-known London papers as the " Daily Mirror " and the " Daily Mail " . At Botwood, not far from Grand Falls, a huge airport is being built by Imperial Airways. Here the " Caledonia " and the " Cambria " and the Pan-American Clippers landed on their experimental trans-Atlantic flights between England and America. Nearly four hundred and fifty years since it was discovered, Newfoundland is in its early stages of development. By the growth of aviation and new industries, and agricul- ture, Newfoundland, it is hoped, will become more prosperous and better known throughout the world. Mavde Fox, Form Vb, Ross House. [26] HOW PERSEUS SLEW THE GORGON An ugly, wicked chief was he That ruled that lonely isle, But Perseus was afeard of naught, And danger made him smile. So loudly spake the age-old chief : " And who among my knights Will brave this hydra-headed beast That hisses fire, and fights? " Medusa, the Gorgon, whose head I would have, Her snaky locks all dead. Whose scaly legs, and brassy arms Our boldest have mislead. " Then answered Perseus, fine and tall, " Yea, master, I will go, I ' ll slay this monster with one stroke And bring her proud head low. " Then off he went on winged feet. And with a golden shield ; A magic helmet on his head Which Mercury did yield. A magic helmet on his head, A magic sword in hand. To smite the Gorgon, which had spread Such terror through the land. Then to the cave did Perseus hie. And found the sisters, three. The three, gray sisters, there they were, A-sitting ' neath a tree. And quietly did Perseus creep. To snatch from each old crone: A yellow tooth; a bleary eye; A large, and meaty bone. [27] So straightway did the women three Begin to scream and kick: " I want my tooth! " " I want my eye! " " I want my bone to lick ! " The while they grovelled on the ground, And tore each others ' hair, Young Perseus flew above their heads And called, " The Gorgon ' s lair ! " The Gorgon ' s lair I fain would find. Medusa, where she roams? I have a quest, I seek the beast. My master wants her bones. " The bargain struck, the goods returned, Young Perseus on his way O ' er land and sea, until he found The dragon, that same day. The monster slept; her snaky locks All writhing on her head At sight of Perseus ' mirror ' d shield, He smote the monster dead. Great was the people ' s joy at last When Perseus came back home. Bearing aloft the Gorgon ' s head. Which turned the chief to stone. Ann Murray, Form IIIb, Fairley House. MOLLY MOLLY is an Easter bonnet. She is the youngest of a family of three and has a sister and a brother. Molly is navy-blue, her sister is green, and her brother, the black sheep of the family, is black. Molly is very pretty, with a wide brim and a sort of stove-pipe on the top of her. Because she is the baby of the family she is not very steady, so she has ribbons which tie under her mistress ' chin to keep her on top of the head. She is really very good when the ribbons are tied, but there is no telling what she might do if she were given the least amount of freedom. Her mistress cannot see what she is doing when on the street, and sometimes is afraid that she is not behaving very well. The first time she was worn, she drew attention from the people and made her mistress quite annoyed, but I think it was because the experience was so new to her that she had not quite learned how to behave. [28] Molly is very friendly with Percy, her mistress ' umbrella. Percy saved her life once when it started to rain suddenly, and Molly cannot do enough now to thank Percy. Molly does not like the theatre, because her mistress always takes her off. You see, Molly is really quite tall and sometimes people cannot see over her. As a matter of fact, she and Percy have this fact in common. Both of them have been taken to see Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald, but Percy would only be good when Miss MacDonald appeared and Molly would only be good when she heard Mr. Eddy ' s wonderful voice and saw his handsome face. There are a few occasions on which Molly ' s mistress unties the ribbons and lets Molly sit on top of her all alone. You see, she is really at the stage where she ought to be learning to do things without her mistress ' aid. One of these occasions is when her mistress is eating. Molly always promises to be good if she is untied, and she always keeps that promise. On the whole, Molly is very happy and pleasing to get along with. Her mistress is proud of her, despite the fact that she is sometimes naughty, but what can one expect of an Easter bonnet not more than three weeks old? Margaret Hunter, Form Va, Barclay House. ON THE NORTH WIND The north wind was moaning and howling all night. Like some great chained giant bewailing his plight. Blow, North Wind, blow across field, across plain, As restless as one who endures some great pain. The clouds were scudding across the sky. Being blown by one who only could sigh. The trees were disturbed from their usual peace, O giant, they ask thee, when wilt thou cease? Peggy Capps, Form Va, Barclay House. THESE HAVE I LOVED (Apologies to Rupert Brooke) Where once the wind has raced through straining shroud, A quivering lake with setting sun, and cloud So still and sculptured and so full of light ! Colour ! Peace and dark, and then the night. And then the little things I have so loved: — The grace of startled hares as they have moved. Good rope, it feels so comforting and strong. And newly painted hills, and then a long Swift line of rushing, playful fluffy waves That comes toward the shore, but never lands or stays. Apples crisp and cold and juicy. Then The thrill of letters written by the pen Of one ' s best friend. Then back to bigger things: — The utter gracefulness of swallows ' wings. And paddling miles and miles in velvet dark. The gaiety and welcome of your own dog ' s bark. These things and many more, I love. Wind, trees and water quiet in the cove; Books, music, speech and graceful walk Are all far greater than an idle talk. And yet I love a quiet conversation. Lyn Berens, Form IVa, Riddell House. GREY OWL GREY OWL, the famous Canadian naturalist, died suddenly of pneumonia in a Prince Albert hospital on the thirteenth of April, leaving behind him his wife and six-year-old daughter. It is supposed that his recent lecturing in the Old Country and here in Canada had sorely taxed his strength, and when a severe cold came upon him, he had no physical resistance. He himself se emed to think so for he is reported to have said in Peterborough this year on the eleventh of March, " Another month of this lectur- ing will kill me. " How accurate his prediction has proved to be! His death is universally mourned; and justly so, for he was, without doubt, one of the greatest naturalists of his generation. He was a lover of children and animals, and did much to make the former understand the latter. Young boys no longer find the same pleasure in stoning frogs, shooting birds, and poaching rabbits as they once did. They seem to think it is " poor sport " , as Grey Owl calls it, and wish to prove themselves " men " by not indulging in it. It is easy to see how this naturalist appealed to the imaginations of the little folk, for his lectures were not highfaluting or heavy, full of scientific theories, but simple. [30] child-like, and interesting. A quotation from his farewell speech to the children of the British Isles exemplifies this: — " Young people of this Kingdom, who have been so kind to me, before we go, do please remember that ' Beaver Lodge ' has an open door to all of you whose hearts are right. And if your heart isn ' t right, come anyway — we ' ll do something about it . . . " And now, my wife. Silver Moon, and I, Grey Owl, two Indians, must leave you. Tomorrow we sail for the Land of the Setting Sun. Lots of luck to all of you. And don ' t forget the invitation. ' Beaver Lodge ' has an open door for every one of you. We ' ll be seein ' you! I am Grey Owl. I have spoken! " His books, too, are interesting as well as instructive. In them he tells us in pretty story form all that happens to his friends, the Beavers, at his home, " Beaver Lodge " . There has been much controversy about the life and origin of Grey Owl. He himself claims to have been an Indian half-breed. He said that he was born in the State of Senora, Mexico, the son of a Scotchman, George Belaney, and a half-breed Apache Indian, Katherine Cochise. He received part of his education from an aunt, but was chiefly self-taught. He came to Canada where he joined the Montreal Regiment and served in the Great War until he was wounded in 1917. He later became a Quebec trapper. " Then I realised, " he said, " what a crime we trappers were committing against nature. I dedicated my life at that moment to the conservation of game. " His wife, Silver Moon, supported his own claim after he was dead, telling the same story of his life, differing only by saying that his father ' s name vas George MacNeil, and that it was his aunt ' s name that was Belaney. H. H. Lovat Dickson, a friend of Grey Owl ' s, also tells this story, but maintains that Hermosillo, Mexico, was his place of birth. A letter published recently in the " News-Chronicle " , however, contradicts this story entirely. It is supposed to have been written by the naturalist ' s own Mother, an English woman, from Devon, to her sister at Hastings. " I write with regret the passing of my beloved son, " the letter said. The " Daily Express " had an editorial which ran as follows: " What does it matter if he never was an Indian but a paleface who persuaded the Indians that he was one of them? You can forgive him for the deception, for it hurt nobody. " The Misses A. and C. Belaney of Wellington Road, Hastings, sent a statement to the press, affirming that Grey Owl was their nephew, and that he had lived with them between the ages of four and sixteen-and-a-half. He then went to Canada to study animal life, and later fought in the War with Canadian forces. These ladies also declared that they possessed a book written by Grey Owl dedicated to them, which verified their assertion. Mrs. Ross, widow of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police constable, vowed that Grey Owl had personally disclosed his identity to her, saying that he was English but had been forced to leave his native land and come to the United States where he let his hair grow and studied Indian life. Then he swore Mrs. Ross to secrecy, adding, " They ' ll find out who I am after I ' m dead. " Howard Seymore or Lone Eagle, an Indian guide, affirms that Grey Owl was his first cousin, and that he himself was called after the naturalist ' s father, Howard Seymore, a full-blooded Algonquin. He says that Grey Owl was born on a reserve in the North- West [31] Territories; his mother had Indian blood but she was brought up by an English family of the Hudson Bay Company and, when Grey Owl ' s father died, his mother took him back to the English family, and later went over to England with them, where Grey Owl was educated. This then, according to Lone Eagle, is how the naturalist is now claimed to be a paleface. Whether it is ever found out or not with any surety exactly what Grey Owl ' s parentage and nationality was, it does not matter. The memory of his life ' s work still remains, unspoiled in its instructiveness and beauty. I now quote a passage from the " London Times " that seems to be a fitting conclusion: — " Of every man, life and work exact some judgment of circumstances. Every man, consciously or unconsciously, must see himself on a stage acting the part which has been decreed he shall play, and if, in the pursuit of a strange and lonely path. Grey Owl thought well to adopt race and tradition that were not his own in fact — not in order to deceive his fellow men or abuse the children who loved him, but in order to feel himself in body and spirit the being he desired to be — he did it that the truth of him might be more true. " Mary Pickup, Form IVb, Ross House. SUNSET AND BIRCHES Crisscrossed against the glowing sky, Radiant with the dying embers of the day, Are birches, long white fingers Raised to heaven as if scorning earth. Slender leaves forming patterns Of rarest symmetry; these etched blackly Form on the goldy rose canvas Of the sunset sky, Beauty indescribable. Heather Campbell, Form Va, Ross House. AFTER Why do you raise your head and look For that man who will never return? For the man who romped with you, petted you, played, For the man who called you " the best dog made " . For the man who went to his death unafraid? You still have war ' s lesson to learn. Remember that day when we walked on the moor [32] While the grey clouds whirled up above? And you chased after rabbits which were not there, While the wind blew back his dear, brown hair. And life was so good and free from care. And man thanked God for His love. And remember when horror broke loose in the world And he went and left us alone? Then day upon day was ever the same. While we waited for letters which never came. And we searched the casualty list for his name. But his fate remained unknown. Then remember the night when I heard a shot And you knew that something was near? Then I saw him lying there twisted and still In the shade of a dead tree, by a hill. While men continued to fight and kill. And my heart stood still with fear? So there ' s no need to raise your head and look For your master who ' s gone above. Yet someday we ' ll find him in a land so fair And you ' ll chase after rabbits which are not there And the wind will blow back his dear brown hair — And man will thank God for His love. Nancy Gillmor, Form Matric. H, Barclay House. MAPLE SUGAR OF all the agricultural industries of Quebec few are more interesting or more impor- tant than the making of maple syrup and maple sugar. Statistics show that maple sugar has more energy values and food calories than any other sugar made, as well as containing iron and phosphates. Nine-tenths of the total crop of maple products for Canada is supplied by the Province of Quebec. The Indians were the first to discover that sugar could be made from sap of the maple tree but the white man has greatly improved on the Indian ' s sugar. There are many kinds of maple trees but the trees with the round lobed leaves are sugar trees. When the frosty nights of March are followed by melting days then the cap rises in the trees and it is time to tap. Many days before this the farmers and sugar- makers are busy in the cabins built in the woods scouring buckets, pans, etc., ready for the rush of boiling the sap for when the sap starts running all hands are busy. All the trees are tapped about three feet from the ground by boring a small hole and inserting [33] a little spout. A covered bucket with a space for the spout to enter is hung on the tree. Men have to empty these buckets into large containers on horse-drawn sleighs which take them back to the cabins where the containers are emptied into large evaporators. The evaporators have siphons which keep the sap moving while boiling until it reaches the desired density of 13 pounds 2 ounces to the gallon when it is carefully filtered for the third time and sealed in cans for shipping. If sugar is desired the sap must be boiled longer but the best grade is kept as syrup. It is very necessary that the weather tempera- ture in March and early April keeps about 22° F. in the daytime for a good flow of sap and that there is enough snow in the woods for the horses to draw the sleighs to collect the sap. " Sugaring Off " Parties in the Province of Quebec are very popular. A number of people will drive out in small box sleighs to the cabins in the woods at a time when the syrup is nearly ready. The snow is cleared in a space leaving a block of clean snow on which is poured a can of hot syrup which immediately hardens to taffy which is called " La Tire " . The visitors are given small wooden paddles on which they can collect enough " La Tire " to resemble a lollipop. Marjorie Morgan, Form IIIb, Riddell House. THE CIRCUS THE lions are going to escape! " were the first words I remember hearing at a circus. Fortunately they did not escape but since that day a circus has always seemed to me to be the most thrilling, fascinating and breath-taking entertainment in the world. As I enter the main tent my eyes are immediately drawn towards the lions roaring, snarling, and lashing their tails; they seem to hate to obey their trainer, but that single mortal standing in the middle of the cage always has them under control. The elephants, as they ponderously walk around the tent with beautiful girls reclining on their backs, seem uninterested in their lot in life. My favourites are the seals who perform their stunts and are given bits of fish which they gulp down and then clap their feelers like children for more. The children ' s favourites are the clowns with painted faces, baggy [34] pants, and huge shoes, who continually make jokes (which are usually had j . The trapeze artists perform their daring stunts up near the roof, and the immen se tent is silent until the reckless fellow returns safely to the ground. The audience is a curious mixture of people. There are the children who are afraid of the animals, and the ones who want to feed the elephants, and all of them without exception are sticky with popcorn and pink lemonade. One little hoy slid through the back of his chair in his excitement; and nearly always someone faints from the heat, the odour and the excitement and has to be carried out. The fashionable ladies look slightly horrified at the clowns and hold their handkerchiefs to their noses. But all these people have one thing in common, they are enthralled by the circus. As soon as the performance is over we rush to see the side-shows. The man turning to stone and the child with two heads were both horrible and we wished that our curiosity had not been so intense. The dwarfs were fascinating, a nd looked like children playing grown-ups. The glass-blowers were most interesting, and we could have remained much longer watching the odd things they created. The bearded lady and the sword-swallower are old inhabitants of the circus. The most interesting side-shows and the ones that always seem the most desirable to see are the ones marked in big letters FOR ADULTS ONLY. The lions and all the other wonderful things must finally be left, and we return to everyday life. I always feel sorry for the freaks who must earn their living by being gazed at and I am glad that I am perfectly normal and do not have to work in a circus however interesting it may be. Jane Elliot, Form Va, Barclay House. COBWEBS IN THE SUN Gleaming lines of purest silver Glistening with a thousand lights. Shimmering, swaying to every move Of a cool breeze that delights. Like flax spun on a fairy loom. Like golden hair in the shining sun. Like gleam of myriad sparkling gems. Sky ' s silver thread when day is done; Can anything created be more fine Than sparkling lines that swiftly run And shiver at a minute touch. These shining cobwebs in the sun. Heather Campbell, Form Va. Ross House. [35] THE LITTLE XYLOPHONIST ANYONE who usually wakes about 7.30 on week-day mornings and who has a radio in her room, has probably joyously shared the triumphs and sorrowfully shared the disillusionments of the little xylophonist, who rises with the lark every morning so that he may get down to the studio before 7.45 a.m., when " station CFCF and short wave CFCX now open their day ' s broadcast service. " For the fifteen minutes before this occurs, technicians busily bustle about connect- ing wires. If you happen to turn on CFCF at this time, you will hear the dull ring that suggests a station still enjoying its beauty sleep. And yet, on rare occasions, you Jnay perhaps hear a few seconds of tinkling xylophone. But suddenly the wires are dis- connected while the technicians readjust things, and you hear the tinkling notes no more. But the valiant, ever-hopeful little xylophonist has had his innings and glows with satisfaction. Even when you do not hear a sound through CFCF at this unspeakable hour of the morning, nevertheless he is still there, bravely banging the keys, hoping, though usually in vain, that a few precious notes may penetrate the ether and reach his eager public. At 7.45 when the " day ' s broadcast service " opens, the gallant little xylophonist is pounced upon by snarling, unappreciative technicians, who stop dashing about in all directions with their very technical bits of machinery, and devote all their energies to suppressing the unsuppressable. For it is time now for the announcer to bring you an " uptotheminute news cast, as furnished by the Canadian Press. " At this point we can picture our undaunted musician, gagged, and bound to a wooden chair by the snarling technicians. He glares goggle-eyed through large horn-rimmed spectacles at the accursed announcer, as he relates with gusto the whole story of the latest Japanese air raid, or as he enthusiastically reports that Barcelona has once more been showered with bombs. When we have been told that for complete details we should see our daily newspaper, our little xylophonist ' s tortures are by no means over. He has to sit there and listen to the most uninspired jazz, until New York mercifully sends cheery trios and hearty breakfasters to replace the local talent. Although CFCF does not really want a xylophonist, no matter how brilliant, they so admire his unquenchable high spirits in spite of all his hardships, that they have not the heart to turn him out. So there he sits, presumably bound and gagged, just in case something might go wrong and CFCF would need somebody to fill in. Once something did go radically wrong, and a stalwart technician swiftly removed the gag, cut the ropes that bound his eager wrists, and proferred him his bongers. Never did he bong with such vigour, never did notes dance so blithely over the rippling air waves! At last he had the opportunity to bong a whole uninterrupted tune to his public. And he did it nobly! But alas, no important contract was pushed through his letter-box the next day, so he still saunters down to the studio at crack of dawn, ever wistfully hoping that his valiant efforts may come under the notice of some beaming sponsor, and perhaps they will. Who knows? Marion Francis, Form Matric. I, Ross House. [36] THE PHANTOM SHIP When the sun sinks and the darkening light Thrills with a sense of the triumphing night, The moon, her softly glowing beams falling On the tired earth, whispering and calling To the dusky night ' s clouds and thousand eyes, Lifts slowly her noble prow when day dies. She floats amid the anchored fleet of stars, Who quiver and obey their captain Mars; I watched in breathless silence to see If her wandering fairy light would touch me; She silently crept and glistened grave, sweet. Over dome and column, up endless street Out upon the reflecting ocean night; And suddenly her great luminous light On me fell, as if I had a new peace found. And caressed my head and kissed the cold ground And still the full orbed moon moved on, so pale, E ' en like a phantom ship without a sail. Elizabeth Anne Kendall, Matric. II, Fairley House. HAVANA, NASSAU AND BERMUDA THE night air was still and peaceful, and the waters were calm. The gigantic ship did not stir in its rest. Shouts of joy and happiness rang through the quiet night. Sud- denly, the ship ' s whistle gave a long, loud blast and the anchor was lifted. We were moving now, away from the dock and the dense crowds. The bay was heavenly. All the lights of New York ' s gay night spots were reflected in the waters, like a million stars wishing all a " Bon Voyage. " And a Bon Voyage it was. Two glorious days at sea, and then Havana. A loud bell rang and we knew that the last tender was leaving for shore. The waters, as we left th e ship, were an aqua-blue, and they broke on the shore in angry sprays of white foam. We hired a car and began a tour of this famous city. Riding through the main streets we were continually bothered by beggars, selling trinkets. The stores open out onto the streets and are frequented by negroes, swarthy mulattoes, but very few whites. Our driver then drove us through the " Tropical Gardens " which are the most beautiful part of Havana. The palms and tropical underbrush form a scene, like this, no where else in the world. Driving through the residential section was most interesting. The Spanish architecture, with great columns supporting the low, flat roofs, surrounding these tropi- cal homes, form an amazing scene. Flowers are so plentiful that anyone may buy a dozen roses for only six cents. From here we drove to the beach and there we had lunch and went for a swim. Their beaches are very clean, but the sun is so strong that a northerner [37] must be careful and not get too burned. We soon boarded the ship, our next stop being Nassau. Nassau, one of the smallest islands, is very quaint and hospitable. Here the sun shines every day and rays of blistering heat scorch Nassau ' s shores. The streets are very narrow, which makes it rather awkward, because there are quite a few cars on this island. The stores are very small and uninteresting. They are a very lazy race, and do not seem to possess a care in the world. Their homes are of Spanish style, though some have become Americanised, and are not very large. Gardens are numerous as well as beautiful. This is not the fault of the natives, because in these tropical lands flowers flourish with very little care. Here as at Havana the favorite drink is rum although beer is also very popular. Nassau, though much smaller, is as beautiful and as interesting as Havana. Leaving Havana and Nassau behind we arrived in Bermuda. On this small and old- fashioned island there are no cars except those used by the government. The means of travel are very slow here as horses and buggies or bicycles are the only ones. This, however, is necessary because the roads are very narrow and some are like bridle paths. Bicycle riding is very popular on this island and you can rent them just like taxi-cabs here. The homes in Bermuda are made of coral painted either white or pink. Their gardens are beautiful as in all tropical lands. The stores are very few and far between and not very large. We sailed from Bermuda at four o ' clock, and our next and last stop was New York. The last day on board ship was very exciting, packing and saying hasty good-byes, as we docked in New York very early. Having seen Havana, Nassau and Bermuda for the first time I really liked them all best. However, I think I ' d prefer Bermuda if I were to see them all again, because it is all so quiet and restful. Virginia Schick, Form Va, Ross House. [38] A CHINESE GONG A little tea-house on a golden lake where lilies cling; A little bronze bridge where ripples break and love-birds sing; A sun that hangs like a lantern in the sky, Three stately mandarins walking slowly by; Tall mimosa plants that shiver and swing; A Chinese girl with a golden ring, Pausing to look at, idling along. Those tiny figures on a Chinese gong; And to wish that the gods might bless her so. With three little mandarins all in a row. Then a sonorous sound that shatters the dream. And the ripples move where the waters gleam. And hide for a moment as they swing in the air Those three little mandarins walking there. Marion Mills, Form Matric. I, Barclay House. A LITTLE BIT OF NOTHING ' Twas midnight, and the sun shone High in the northern sky. While we were down in Cuba, Watching the ice roll by. A boat was sailing on the beach ; A train far out to sea Was shunting side-long backwards. Over the grassy lea. The engine driver cool and calm. Climbed the lofty mast. And looking o ' er the desert saw The fish all walking past. The day-light went, the sun came out. The stars did soon appear. And we went sailing, on and on, Square into the rounded pier. Mar J OKIE J. Heward, Upper V, Ross House. [39] SOME THINGS I LOVE I love the rippling of a brook, A sunny summer ' s day, A garden full of flowers bright Or anything that ' s gay. The crackling of a blazing fire; A shining silver star; The sunset with its rosy glow O ' er all things near and far. I love the hum of busy bees; The taste of honey, sweet; The laughter of a happy child, The tramp of tiny feet. My mother ' s knitting-needles click. And make a pleasant sound I like the noisy singing-tops. That keep going ' round and ' round. I like to watch the clouds go by. Or breathe fresh country air, A strain of soft, sweet harmony To me is something rare. The milkman ' s horse that trots along And draws a big white cart; A holiday that ' s long and gay; I love with all my heart. Nina Lawes, Form IVb, Fairley House. A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE WE were returning to Canada in three days ' time, and had been the guests of our English friends in Derbyshire for nearly a week. With such a short time left, I was beginning to give up hope of having my curiosity satisfied, when I was asked whether I would like to go down the mine. This is what I had been longing to do ever since we had been in Shipley, and I did not hesitate to accept the invitation. It was a Sunday and I quickly changed into my oldest clothes, as did my friend, but I am sure I was more excited than she, because she had previously been down with her father several times. To her it was not the novelty that it was going to be for me. We had about a quarter of a mile ' s walk to the pit head through fields and soon [40] arrived at the manager ' s office where we were provided with rain coats and ruhher boots, none of which fitted us but proved a useful protection against dust and dirt. 1 tried on several helmets and at last found one sufficiently small to balance on my head. It had a very large crown with a thick metal lining and was quite heavy and far from comfortable to wear. No one is permitted to go underground without this protection for the head. Disguised in this fashion we went to the lamp-room where we were each furnished with a beautifully made safety lamp which was lit with acetylene gas. I was now fully prepared for my adventure. A short distance from the lamp room was the power house, in which was installed the electric machinery required to operate the cage. There was a huge fly-wheel around which a heavy cable was strung. It was at least fifteen feet in diameter. A few steps brought us to the cage as it is called, and the entrance to the colliery. I couldn ' t help but think of Alice in Wonderland as I stepped into the cage and prepared to descend into the bowels of the earth. I had a queer feeling when I realised that the cage, which was constructed very much like a bird cage, had a floor made of iron rails and that there was a space between each of these rails. I looked down the shaft and saw what seemed to be a black, unending passage. The shaft was six hundred feet deep and seemed to me, much more than that. When we were safely in the cage and I had got a firm grip on the rail at the side, the lattice door was closed, a bell was rung, and the cage started its downward journey. It descended at such a speed, and the air rushed past us so swiftly as we rushed into the darkness, that I did not know what was happening to me. It was a terrifying and thrill- ing sensation. With my helmet on my head, my lantern in my hand and my ears buzzing, I stumbled out of the cage as soon as we had reached the bottom of the shaft. Following our guide, who, owing to the shallowness of the tunnel through which we walked, had to stoop slightly — he was six feet tall — I groped my way between the railway tracks. These ran from the entrance to the cage to the furthest workings. I was surprised that being so far underground the tunnels should be so well ven- tilated. The air was extraordinarily pure. We soon reached the ponies ' quarters; there were forty in all. They were all small, sturdy animals, and appeared to be quite contented with their lot, which was not to be wondered at, as each pony had its own stall, with fresh hay and running water and equipped with electric light. Their troughs were filled with oats, and over each stall was printed the pony ' s name. They are groomed every day and the greatest care is taken to keep them in good condition. They never come to the surface unless they need veterinary attention. After having stroked several of the ponies, and they all seemed as pleased to see me as I was to see them, we went to the mine manager ' s office. This was only a small room and I felt that it would be a most unpleasant place in which to spend any length of time. It was like being in a tightly sealed box. There were no pictures on the walls, and, of course, no windows. I was glad when the office door was opened and we commenced to retrace our steps to the cage. The underground passages through which we passed were lined with coal which had been whitewashed. [41] We soon arrived at the cage. The bell was rung and we quickly ascended to the top of the shaft. I had enjoyed my first subterranean experience but heaved a sigh of relief when 1 again saw the sunshine and the green fields. Dorothy Turville, Form Upper II, Riddell House. THE SONG OF THE SKIERS (In the Dark) Swish ! Swish ! one, two ! How many more will there be? Two have passed me like a flash — If only I could see. What lies before me in the dark Beyond that furry tree. I ' ve passed the tree, I ' m on my way, I hope you ' ll all agree. It took a lot of courage; Not just to pass the tree. But to wait in expectation, for What lay ahead of me. Peggy Clarke, Form Va, Fairley House. TREES IN WINTER THE scene might have been from fairyland. The trees were of gleaming glass and dancing diamonds. They leant across the drive towards each other, their branches mingling, and forming fine silvery patterns on the sky. The air was silent, and the trees seemed rebuked by the earth, their mother, for being so beautiful. They became afraid and tried to gather closer, whispering and moan- [42] ing, as if they were expecting some dreadful punishment. A playful wind passed by, but the trees would not frolic. They only groaned and sighed the more. They waited tensely, surely their punishment was soon; some shed tears, some trembled. The expectancy could not be endured longer; trees dashed themselves to the ground, others gnashed their boughs, and a lashing rain began. Joan Clague, Upper Va, Riddell House. COFFEE-HOUSE COFFEE-HOUSES were first heard of in Europe at Constantinople in the middle of the sixteenth century. They were introduced at Venice in 1645 and from thence spread quickly to every city of the continent. The first coffee-house in London was set up in 1652 in Saint Michael ' s Alley, Cornhill, by a Greek named Ragusan. Four years later " The Rainbow " was opened and in a few years the number had increased to over a hundred. Coffee was sold at a penny a cup. It was a great novelty and found to be most delicious. Soon the coffee-house rivalled the tavern as a resort. The spacious low- ceilinged rooms with their wide tables, many chairs, and roaring fireplaces became free and open clubs. Men met at the coffee-house to discuss the news of the day and to hear what was happening. Soon each party in politics, and almost each division of society had its own favourite coffee-house. Jonathan ' s, in Change Alley, was frequented entirely by stock-jobbers; merchants and traders gathered at Lloyd ' s; St. James ' s was the resort of the Whigs from the reign of Queen Anne to the close of George III; while perhaps the most famous of all was Will ' s, later Button ' s, patronized by the scholars and writers of the Age. One cold wet April day, in 1700, an old man might have been seen wending his way to Will ' s coffee-house where an honoured place awaited him. The room was filled with his friends and admirers, all eager to see and speak with him, many to obtain his opinion of their latest production. As he sat by the fire, drinking his coffee and discussing subjects of importance, two men entered the room. Young and handsome with their long, curled wigs and intelligent faces, they made a striking picture. The great dictator saw the stamp of genius on their faces and asked, " Who are they? " " Mr. Joseph Addison and Mr. Richard Steele, " replied one of his contemporaries, " inseparable friends. Each has made a trial of poetry- writing but with little success. They have just returned from France and expect to leave again soon. " Dryden bent his eyes upon the strange faces, " Twenty, nay ten, years from now, I do not believe anyone will say that they have been no success. But who is that yonder with friend Ch ? A strange looking child! " With his hand on the back of a straight chair, a little boy was standing. Pale-faced, delicate and thin, the child looked to be much less than his eleven years. " Oh, that is little Alexander Pope, son of Pope the linen-draper. A very delicate child but, I believe, a great student and admirer of yours. " Dryden smiled kindly at the little boy. Usually he disliked children, but this little lad seemed so ill and lonesome. Little [43] did he know that the strange child was destined to become even more famous than he himself and that through the years of his manhood he would never forget the glimpse of his great master. In modern times coffee-houses have become philanthropic or temperance concerns owned by large companies and prosper in large numbers in Great Britain. Yet they are now only reflections of their past glory when " mine host " welcomed to his wainscoated, spacious rooms, statesmen, courtiers, merchants, poets, dramatists, essayists, historians, scholars and thinkers upon all subjects. Allana Reid, Form Vb, Barclay House. THE LAND OF LEGENDS Far from the din of a city crowd, Far from the heat and smoke and grime; Far from the whistles and noises loud, Lies — The Land of Legends. This unknown is no-man ' s land. Its wild and natural beauty true; Free from change of human hand, This — Land of Legends. The scent, the smell of the open sea. The noise, the sound of the sighing wind; The way, the road of the ever free. In — The Land of Legends. The sheltering trees around me stood. As I gazed at the glorious, painted, sky; The sun sank behind the mountain ' s hood. In — The Land of Legends. This wild land brings thoughts to me, And hopes that someday I will see; This roving land of the ever free. This — Land of Legends. Helen Leavitt, Form IVb, Ross House. THE BROOK Flowing through the valleys wild. Trickling past the meadow flowers. Where the trilliums suck me up. Where the deer spends many hours. [44] As I trickle through the trees. Where the weeping willows lean, Often come wood-nymphs and dryads Asking me what I have seen. Children who are tired with play Come to rest beneath a tree. And their little pink toes wander To my wavelets running free. As I rush forever onward, Running, rippling to the sea. All the stars above me twinkle But the moon just smiles at me. Mar J OKIE Byatt, Form IIIa, Riddell House. [45] DAFFODILS The daffodils are dancing On the hill-top green, I ' m sure such a lovely sight Will never more be seen. Yellow skirts a-fluttering, What a pretty sight! Yellow petals, greens stems. On the sunny height. Oh, daffodils, all gold and green. In April, and in May, I love you so, with all my heart. Why can ' t you stay — and stay? Harriet Anderson, Form II. MR. NOBODY He scratches tables, chairs and things. And ruins all the floor. He pours the tarnish ' pon our rings. And bangs our maple door. He breaks the chairs and cushions too. And turns the hall rugs all askew. He hides and loses the front door key. And who does that? — Mr. Nobody. Joan Thackray, Lower Form I. [46] MY FIDDLE If I had a fiddle, I ' d fiddle all the day, Through wet and rainy weather I ' d play the hours away. But when the sun was shinmg. And birds sang light and gay, I ' d put away my fiddle And run out-doors to play. Frances Chase, Form Upper I. A PANSY The pansy in my garden Is purple, and bright yellow, I ' m sure it likes to be there. It ' s such a happy fellow. This morning in my garden I saw a little bee. It came up to my pansy. To keep her company. My pansy has a baby. It ' s a bud very small, And now I ' ll have two pansies. Growing by our garden wall. Ann Lindsay, Form II. A BRAVE DEED ONCE there was a young boy who wanted very much to go to sea. One day he found his chance. He saw a sign which said, " Boy wanted to sail on the Empress of Santa Barbara, " so he went inside and asked the man if he would do, and the man said, " A little young, but all right; be here at nine to-morrow to sail. " Bob went awav feeling very glad, as he would earn something to keep his mother and sister alive. His mother said he might go as long as he would be careful. He was at the dock at nine the next mornins; and was sailing at five minutes after nine. He was a very happy boy. When they had been sailing for one day, thev came to India, where Bob saw sights he had never seen before. He wished his sister might see it too. They started again and that night Bob was called to the Captain ' s cabin, where the [47] Cap tain said, " Well, lad, I am going to tell you a few things. I am going to make you a real sailor, and you may do just as the other men do and come with me on every trip I make. " Bob said, " Oh, Captain Harlow, thank you very much. I have wanted to be a, real sailor for a long, long time. " The Captain told Bob to go now and see about his lunch, and the Captain left to go down to the engine room. After Bob had been made a real sailor and had uniform and pin on, he felt very big. He knew his mother and sister would be glad as he was earning much more money. They landed at other ports, and each time people would say, " Oh, look at that small sailor-boy. " When they had left their last port and were quite away from shore, a terrible thing happened. All of a sudden someone called " Fire! " and the lifeboats were lowered, the passengers got on board, and the crew of sailors followed. Bob did not go onto the lifeboat, as he had heard cries from below. He raced down the stairs in the smoke, and found a small child in a room where she had been taking her nap, and by the time Bob got there, she was nearly overcome with smoke. He raced up the stairs with the child, and gave her to a sailor, and then fell down exhausted himself. Later, when help came, and Bob was feeling better, the Captain came down to see him. Bob was told by the Captain that he had rescued his daughter and that he also had a surprise for him. When Bob was able to get up, he went to the Captain ' s room, and he said, " You are a very brave sailor and I want to thank you very much for rescuing Peggy, my little daughter, and to show you that I am really very grateful, you are to be made an officer of my ship. I planned that with my mates and other officers. I think that some day you may grow to be an Admiral. " Bob thanked the Captain who had so heartily congratu- lated him for saving Peggy ' s life. Every other sailor gave Bob a hearty cheer, and told him that he would make a good officer. In after years, Bob was made an Admiral, all because he had had such a good start. Elizabeth Griffith, Form n. THE SEASONS Spring is come. With its sun. With its rains. And flowery lanes. Summer is come. With its sun. With its flowers. And leafy bowers. Autumn is here, Bright and clear Leaves are falling. North winds calling. [48] Winter is here, Cold and clear, Lots of snow. The North winds blow. Elise Macklaier, Form II. SONGS OF THE GYPSIES I They sat around the camp fire, I heard them laugh and sing. They sang about the birdies And they sang about the spring. They sang about the rivers. And the sky of azure blue. They sang about the mountains And the sparkling morning dew. And when the shadows lengthened, The gypsies were not found. No trace of them was seen about Save embers on the ground. Ann Lindsay, Form II. [49] II We are a dark-skinner gypsy tribe, With black eyes and black hair; We live in a gypsy caravan, And wander here and there. We roam by rushing waterfalls, And pretty little streams, And in the dark and shady woods Through which the sunlight gleams. We go in meadows full of flowers. And on the dusty road; Everyone else has somewhere to live. But a gypsy has no abode. But we have our hardships too. For winter is very cold ; We often don ' t have enough to eat When our wares cannot be sold. And if the people wish us harm. We do not really mind it; For we love the whole wide world Whatever way we find it. Ill Ho! Hum! Here we come. Each with his load. Skipping, dancing. Singing, laughing. All along the road. Tip, Tipping, Bump, Bumping, Here come the Caravans. Cling, Clang, Bing, Bang, Go the pots and pans. Harriet Anderson, Form II. Dagmar Johnson, Form II. [501 FISHING One day I went a-fishing — A-fishing on the sea, And I had quite good luck, For I caught fishes — three. The sun was shining brightly. The sky was cobalt blue. It was early in the morning And the grass was filled with dew. I fished and fished ' till mid-day, And brought them home to Mum. She and Daddy liked them. And of course I, too, had some. Marion Fox, Lower I. THE FUNNY MAN As I was walking down the street Upon a bright Spring day, I met a very funny man Who passed me on my way. I looked at him, I stared at him. He did not say a thing Excepting this, " How glad I am That it is truly Spring ! " The trees were budding all around. The grass was getting green. The crocuses were coming out. The birds would soon be seen. I ' ll tell you who this queer man was Whom I met that Spring day, Jack Frost ' s his name — that ' s why he ' s glad From work to get away. Mary Munroe, Lower I. [51] AUTUMN Autumn is here with its leaves so bright, Big round pumpkins and chestnuts so ripe. When the days grow cold away the birds fly, They haven ' t warm fires like you and I. When Jack Frost comes the flowers all go. And are soon wrapped up in a blanket of snow. Mary Grimley, Form Lower I HOW DAFFODILS GROW ON EARTH ONCE there was a little boy star who was very bad. He ran away from his mother star because she would not let go his hand. The little boy star ' s name was Jumping Star. So Jumping Star let go of his mot her ' s hand while she was asleep. To his amaze- ment, he began to slide down a sunbeam while the sun soaked him with yellow dye. There was a big bump, then another and another, until Jumping Star thought he would fall off. Then they began going round in circles, then there was another bump and they landed on the ground. Jumping Star went to sleep after his long trip. When he woke up next morning he was not a star but a daffodil, and that is how daffodils first came to earth. Sally Pitfield, Lower T. MY KITTEN I have a lovely kitten Who is so dear to me. But I can never find her For she hides up in a tree. She is so soft and pretty. And isn ' t very old. Her coat is thick and fluffy And Oh she ' s very bold! She purrs when she is happy. And plays with balls and thread. But doesn ' t like it much When she has to go to bed. Just one more thing about her. Her name it ' s Tinker Bell, I love her very dearly And that ' s all I have to tell. Wendy Maclachlan, Form Upper I. [52] SPRING Our skating days are over, The snow is melting fast, The little birds are chirping, The winter days have past. The days are getting longer. The sky is blue and bright; The bulbs are all awakening And welcoming the light. The sun is getting stronger, Jack Frost has run away. " Hurrah! " " Hurrah! " the children cry. The spring has come to stay. Barbara Brown, Form Lower 1. [53] A DOGGIE STORY THERE was a little dog called Ghillie. He was the sweetest puppy you ever saw. He was a Spaniel. He had a good friend called Peter. Peter is a Setter. They are a play- ful pair. He has straight hair and he is black and white. His friend, Ghillie, is getting a curl in his back. We love our dogs very much. GiANA Lyman, 7 years old. Preparatory. OUR MUSEUM IN school we have a Museum. We made it ourselves out of boxes and lined the shelves with light blue paper. In it we have quite a lot of interesting and queer things. A few of the things are a necklace made of coral, some cotton, a piece of a wasp ' s nest, and some petrified wood. It looks very pretty with all the things in, and looked so plain without anything in it. We have put up a sign to say, " Please do not touch things in this Museum ! " We have pretty trays all different sizes to put small, and big things in. The trays have all different designs on and it looks very pretty. We hope it will last a long time and give many people pleasure. Jean Sinnamon, 7 years old. MISS HAZELL ' S LECTURE MISS HAZELL gave us a lecture, to tell us of what she had seen and done in the West. Miss Hazell told us about a sand storm. In Winnipeg they had got a good crop of wheat. They had not had such a good crop of wheat for a long time. It was about a week before they were going to cut it, when a big sand storm came and spoiled eighty miles of wheat. Miss Hazell met a little boy coming home from school and Miss Hazell said, " What did you do in the sand storm? " and the boy answered, " I just got off my horse and got under him till it was over. " [54] After the sand storm Miss Hazell said you could only see the tops of the houses and in one place you could see foot-prints. Once Miss Hazell and her friend were walking along and she said, " You go on that path and I ' ll go on this path; then they kept calling back to each other so they would not get lost. A cow boy came rushing on a horse because they thought Miss Hazell and her friend had been caught by the bull. The boy said if the bull starts after you, wait until he is quite close and then step aside, because the bull chases with his eyes closed. Miss Hazell said there was a sick woman and she had a daughter. The Mother said, " I cannot go to church, so you go to church and then tell me what the text was. " When her daughter came back from the church Mother asked what was the text; the daughter said, " It was, — don ' t worry, you ' ll get the quilt. " A friend came over that afternoon, and the mother asked what was the text, and the friend said, " Don ' t worry for the Lord will send you a comforter. " Miss Hazell and some friends were going along the road and they saw a little girl watching the cattle. She was all by herself and she slept in a tent at night. So they went to her parent ' s and said, " Why don ' t you put her in a boarding school? " So Miss Hazell dressed her well and put her in a boarding school. Miss Hazell said she is much changed and she is very happy. Anne Johnson, 9 years. MY GOLDFISH I HAVE a goldfish and I call her Sheila. She is orange with a black back but you can ' t think what she did. She jumped out of her bowl in the night and in the morning I stepped on her without noticing it. The next day I bought another and I called him Jimmy and I was quite annoyed at him because he died too. Nancy Inglis, 8 years old, Preparatory. THE DOG AND THE CAT THE dog was trying to drink milk like the cat and he got sick, and the cat was trying to chew a bone like the dog and broke a tooth. The dog said to the cat, " I don ' t see how you can sit around and mew and drink that awful milk " ; and the cat said, " I don ' t see how you can run around and bark and chew bones. " Moral: Don ' t try to be like other people. Helen Ayer, 8 years old. [55] SMOKIES THE HAPPY EASTER BUNNY ONCE upon a time there was a little Bunny, he lived with his Mummy, his Daddy, four brothers, and five sisters. He was the smallest of the family. Their house was in the ground. It had two doors, one in front and one in the back. He was a very happy Bunny, but he had one wish. He wished he could be an Easter Bunny. It was the day before Easter. He was wondering how he could be an Easter Bunny. That night he went outside to play with his brothers and sisters, like he did every other night. But that night he was thinking of something, he was thinking he would go down the lane and see the Fairy Queen. She was a very nice fairy and everybody loved her. So the little bunny went to her and asked her if she would make him an Easter Bunny. She said ' T will make you an Easter Bunny if you will do as I tell you. First you must go to the wishing tree at the end of the lane, then you must turn around three times, close your eyes, and wish to be an Easter Bunny. Now run along, that is all I can tell you. Goodbye! " Then Bunny ran home to his Mother to tell her the good news. [56] His Mother said, " You can be an Easter Bunny if you don ' t tell your brothers and sisters about it. You may go now. Goodbye! " So Bunny ran down the lane to the wishing tree. He said, just what the fairy told him to say. First he turned around three times, and then he closed his eyes and said: " I wish to be an Easter Bunny! And when he opened his eyes, lo and behold he found that instead of a little brown bunny, he was a white Easter Bunny with little brown shoes, a little blue jacket and a basket with the prettiest eggs you ever saw in it. On Easter morning Bunny went around with the other Easter bunnies and hid eggs for all the children to find. Jan Henry, Age 8. THE SINGING FESTIVAL N Friday March 18th we went down to sing our songs. Lower Canada, St. George ' s, The Crippled School, and Riverside were there, it was very nice. When we were singing our songs Sir Hugh Roberton the Judge was writing all the time. He had a beard about two inches long. He was a very nice man and he was Scotch. Sir Hugh Roberton would come up after we had finished. Then he would say something about every school. We all sang at the Montreal High School. We all said that if we did not win we would like the Crippled Children to win and they did. So that means that the Crippled Children will get the Trophy. We are going to send them a postcard to tell them that we are glad they won and we don ' t mind that we did not win. Sir Hugh Roberton said we were not very happy but we sang nicely. We all sang " Blow away the morning Dew, " then we sang our free choice " Three Children Sliding On The Ice. " It was the first I had been at and it was very, very nice. Lots and lots of schools were there at Montreal High School. Marilyn Potter, Age 9. MOTHERS ' PARTY We all asked our mothers to a little party. First we sang " The Animal Carol " then " Away In A Manger " and " I Saw Three Ships. " The Mothers clapped. Miss Strawbridge told all the people how we made the plays, then we acted. The first play was, " The Fairies, " written by Jan Henry. The second play was " The Mouse and the Rabbit, " it was written by Helen Ayer. The third play was written by Jean Sinnamon. The play was called " The Elf and the Fairy. " The Mothers and Fathers clapped and we sang last of all " Jolly Old Saint Nicholas. " So everybody went home happy. Nora Corley, Age 9. [57] TREES When the wind blows hard the trees do sing. And the branches sing and ring And it howls and howls to the very tip top And all of a sudden the branches go flop. And when I sit under the tall pines The big trees talk to the small small vines Oh trees, Oh trees. Oh lovely trees When the wind blows it makes a breeze. The fairies dance at midnight When the sun has left the sky, The fairies dance and dance and dance, But I just don ' t know why. The fairies dance at midnight And never, never, never die. They always dance at midnight. But I just don ' t know why. Anne Johnson, Age 9. FAIRIES Elizabeth Anne Blake, Age 9. V 1 )8] IMPRESSIONS J ' AI commence I ' annee en Europe, mais le soir meme de ce premier jour de Tan je m ' embarquais pour le Canada. Je laissais les cotes de France et d ' Angleterre sous un leger brouillard exempt de froid. Huit jours plus tard, apres une tres belle traversee, j ' etais a Halifax. Le ciel etait tres bleu, le soleil radieux une tres legere couche de neige couvrait la terre, il y avait de beaux arbres verts, j ' ai pense alors a la cote d ' Azur. Ce fut d ' ailleurs une impression assez rapide car aussitot en chemin de fer, apres la Nouvelle Ecosse, le Nouveau Brunswick m ' offrit des paysages de Neige qui me rappelerent que j ' etais bien loin de I ' Europe. Que dire, quand j ' arrivai a Montreal le lendemain matin: des amas de neige, des rues qui ressemblaient a des chemins de campagne et une neige si sale . . . J ' avoue que ce fut pour moi penible de voir cette blancheur grise pendant si longtemps. Et puis, il fallait apprendre a marcher sur ces trottoirs raboteux et glissants, si non, gare aux chutes . . . C ' etait bien nouveau tout cela et ce n ' etait pas agreable. II y avait un tres beau soleil, un ciel bleu qui certes n ' avaient rien a envier a ceux des rivages mediterraneens, mais les promenades a pied avaient tellement perdu de leur charme pour moi que mon plaisir general etait fort diminue. II ne faut sans doute jamais trop se fier aux premieres impressions: Le printemps precoce arriva bien vite. Notre quartier est devenu un immense pare avec ses villas, ses buissons, ses massifs, ses fleurs, ses oiseaux, ses jolies maisons et surtout ses vieux arbres, Montreal m ' est apparu tout autre. C ' est une revelation: la neige avait tout reconvert, tout deforme, tout change, vraiment elle n ' avait rien embelli. Et notre ecole? Ce n ' etait pas du tout nouveau pour moi, I ' atmosphere d ' une ecole, mais cette fois, c ' etait le Canada, c ' etait Montreal. Et Trafalgar est une ecole qui compte! Si, dans les rues, les dames et les jeunes filles m ' ont semble autant de chats bottes avec leurs caoutchoucs protecteurs hordes de fourrure, les eleves de Trafalgar m ' ont paru des pages avec leurs tuniques courtes et leurs longs has noirs. J ' aime beaucoup les regarder quand elles defilent. Cela donne beaucoup de legerete a I ' ensemble et a beaucoup d ' allure. Puis j ' ai fait connaissance avec quelques classes et surtout avec la toute jeunesse: [59] nous avons essaye de nous comprendre en parlant deux langues differentes, mais cette difference s ' est vite attenuee. Preparatory, Remove et Lower I ont fait des efforts pour arriver a saisir un pen de frangais. Une autre impression tres agreable pour moi a ete de voir les visages ouverts et souriants des eleves — je pense que leur travail est joyeux et profitable; il y a d ' ailleurs des poitrines constellees de decorations dignes des meil- leurs veterans, et pour entrer dans le secret de ces etoiles mysterieuses, il faut voir le grand concours de gymnastique. Ainsi, chaque jour j ' ai appris quelque chose de nouveau. J ' espere qu ' il en a ete de meme pour les eleves, car il n ' y a je suis sure aucun progres veritable s ' il n ' est accom- pagne d ' un enrichissement commun et Ton n ' est riche que de ce que Ton a donne. Angele Gabillet. LE GATEAU BRETON IL y a deux ans mon pere et moi, nous avons passe une semaine en France dans un village breton. Nous avons loue une petite maison et la femme du bedeau, Gabrielle- Marie, a fait notre cuisine. Gabrielle-Marie nous parlait souvent des superstitions des Bretons. En particulier elle nous a raconte cette aventure qui est arrivee a sa belle-soeur. Cette derniere avait trois fils qu ' elle adorait, mais ils ont ete tous trois noyes. La pauvre mere est de venue presque folle de douleur et pleurait incessament. Un soir on frappa a la porte. Elle Fouvrit et apergut ses trois fils dans le brouillard qui lui dirent: " Ne pleure pas, maman, nous voulons rester en paix sous les vagues. " A ce point de son histoire Gabrielle- Marie s ' est mise a rire et a dit: " Mais ils n ' ont pas voulu entrer, alors, je ne les ai pas vus. Je ne crois pas ce que je ne vois pas. " Gabrielle-Marie etait gasconne; elle n ' etait pas sympathique avec le mysticisme celtique des bretons. Elle etait aussi tres pratique et pensait a son bien, comme I ' incident suivant nous fait voir. Gabrielle-Marie insistait toujours que nous obtenions un gateau du boulanger, " car, " disait-elle, " si vous n ' achetez rien de lui, il sera blesse. " Pourtant elle a attendu jusqu ' a la derniere journee pour I ' acheter. Le matin que nous devions partir elle est arrivee avec un gateau si grand qu ' on ne pouvait a peine le passer par la porte. C ' etait un gateau magnifique, mais nous nous sommes demandes comment Gabrielle-Marie croyait que nous puissions le finir, tout delicieux qu ' il etait. Cependant nous avons bientot appris la verite. Le fils de Gabrielle-Marie, un petit gargon de six a sept ans est venu a la maison pour nous aider a empaqueter. II etait un petit bavard et parlait librement des invites qui allaient venir chez sa maman ce soir. Peu a peu nous avons commence a comprendre. Assurement nous ne pourrions pas manger tout le gateau et Gabrielle-Marie avait decide que cette confection superbe serait la piece de resistance de sa soiree. Nous sommes partis avec les meilleurs souhaits de tous ceux qui nous ont accom- pagnes a la gare et qui — triste reflexion — allaient finir de manger notre beau gateau chez le bedeau. Christine Williams, Form Matriculation I, Ross House. [60] UN JOUR DE PLUIE LE ciel etait gris, les nuages etaient gris et lourds, le vent soufflait et geignait dans les arbres. La pluie tombait et la rue etait filonnee de petits cours d ' eau. II y avail de la boue partout; c ' etait un jour pour les canards, pas un jour pour les hommes. Aux fenetres on pouvait voir les figures des petits enfants qui voulaient sortir et jouer a la balle ou aux billes, ils etaient fatigues de la maison. lis avaient joue a tous les jeux qu ' ils savaient. La mere etait distraite, les enfants avaient casse quelques plats en pensant qu ' ils Faidaient, ils avaient taquine le chien qui voulait sortir aussi, ils avaient joue a la balle et casse une vitre. Maintenant ils etaient assis, mais combien de temps pourraient-ils rester ainsi? Dehors les oiseaux ne chantaient pas. Ils se cachaient dans les arbres et sous les toits. On ne voyait ni homme, ni chien dans les rues. Quant aux chats, pas un. Les chats n ' aiment pas la pluie, et quand il pleut on pent les trouver dans les maisons ou sous les verandas. La nature seule aimait cette pluie, les feuilles et Therbe etaient vertes; elles se rafraichissaient dans I ' eau du ciel, dans les larmes des nuages. Mais ce soir la a six heures les nuages se sont leves, on a pu voir le ciel bleu, le soleil a brille et, dans le ciel etait le signe de Dieu: Farc-en-ciel. Heather Campbell, Form Va, Ross House. CHANCE CHANCE est un petit epagneul tres vif et tres intelligent. Tous les jours je le brosse et une fois par semaine je lui donne un bain. II n ' aime pas du tout etre lave, c ' est pour cela qu ' il faut mettre un tablier de caoutchouc pour ne pas etre mouille. Un jour nous avons fait un pique-nique et nous sommes partis a bicyclette pour la foret. " Chance " voulait venir aussi et au commencement nous avons pense que ce serait trop incommode de I ' emmener, enfin nous avons decide de le laisser venir car il faisait pitie tant il etait triste! II a couru tout le long du chemin et il etait tres fatigue, il avait aussi tres chaud, Alors il est alle se baigner dans un petit lac qui n ' etait pas loin d ' ou nous avions laisse nos bicyclettes. II etait tres content d ' etre dans I ' eau et nous lui avons jete des morceaux de bois pour qu ' il puisse aller les chercher et les rapporter. II aimait beaucoup cela et nous avons joue ainsi presque toute la matinee. Enfin nous avions tres faim et nous avons pris nos sandwiches et nous les avons manges avec lui. Apres nous nous sommes assis et nous lisions quand tout a coup, j ' ai entendu I ' aboiement de " Chance " qui errait dans le bois. Nous sommes alles voir ce qu ' il avait. Quand nous sommes arrives a cote de lui nous avons vu quelque chose d ' horrible. II y avait par terre un homme tout mouille et nous avons compris que " Chance " I ' avait sauve au moment ou il allait se noyer. Nous avons pratique la respiration artificielle. Quand nous avons vu qu ' il vivait encore j ' ai laisse mon ami pres de lui et je suis allee chercher une ambulance. Deux heures apres toute la famille etait autour de " Chance " et on le caressait parce qu ' il etait le heros de la journee. Barbara Ann Smith, Form IIIb, Barclay House. [61] CORRESPONDANCE FRANCO-CANADIENNE Cheres lectrices, Les deux lettres qui vont suivre ont a peine besoin d ' introduction. Les anciennes eleves doivent se rappeler les debuts de cette correspondance. Qu ' on me permette simplement, aujourd ' hui, de faire remarquer les progres evidents des deux amies. Alors, Cheres Lectrices . . . pourquoi n ' en feriez-vous pas autant? Si cela vous interesse, renseignez-vous aupres de votre tres d evouee, M. Dillon. Montreal, le trois avril. Chere Therese, I received your letter and I thank you very much for it. I was very glad to hear that you liked the money. J ' ai fini mon album d ' images. II ne contient que des chiens — toutes sortes de chiens. II y a beaucoup de chiens comme le votre. En tout, il y a cent trente-six images de chiens. Une partie de cet album s ' appelle " Dog Stars of Hollywood. " Ce sont les chiens qui jouent dans les films. Aimez-vous collectionner des images ou des photographies? J ' aime beaucoup cela. We are having some interesting stories in French now and I have read one or two books at home in French. Well Therese, there is not much more to say, so I will close here. Hoping that you are all well. Your friend, Joan. Romans, France, Dimanche ler mai. Chere Joan, II y a huit jours que j ' ai re u votre longue lettre dont je vous remercie beaucoup. Je corrigerai vos f antes a la fin de ma lettre, j ' ai compris facilement votre anglais. Je crois vraiment que notre correspondance nous a fait faire beaucoup de progres a toutes les deux; et je pense que ma tante a eu la une tres bonne idee. Voila deja trois ans que nous nous ecrivons. Our Easter Holidays began on the 10th of April, and finished on the 25th. The weather was not hot during these two weaks. To-day is the first of May, it is not hot. On the first of May, all the people have a flower of the lily of the valley, they say that it brings good luck. I like the lily of the valley, but my favourite flower is the rose. There are many roses in our garden, and manv of them are alreadv opened. I like chiefly the white roses. We got in a lottery two little white chickens. We j)ut them in a cage. We call them " Pic " and " Piou " . I like very much the animals; dogs, cats, birds. Do you like all animals? I should like you to send me your photograph. I shall soon send you the mine. I have to do an exercise about Canada, in which it is told that in winter there are only sledges on the road. In your next letter tell me if it is true. you like the stories [62] in French, I am sending you one again. It is from a paper that I read every week. I correct your mistakes: Je suis heureuse que vous aimez — que vous aimiez, L ' histoire que vous mavez envoye — vous m ' avez envoyee. Je ne Fai pas finie deja — pas encore finie. De beau temps quen ete — Du beau temps comme en ete. II faut qu ' il fait chaud — qu ' il fasse chaud. Chere Joan, je n ' ai plus rien a vous dire. En attendant, je vous donne un affec- tueux bonjour, pour vous et votre famille. Votre amie, Therese. P.S. — J ' espere que vous ne serez pas fachee si je pense que vous etes un peu etourdie, pour beaucoup de f antes de votre lettre, je suis sure que vous saviez ce qu ' il fallait ecrire, mais que vous n ' y avez pas pense; pourtant vous auriez pu les eviter. Mais si vous pensez la meme chose de moi, je voudrais bien que vous me le disiez. 0 [63] [64] MRS. MITCHELL THE first day back at school after the Christmas holidays was marked by very great excitement. The news was rumoured and was later confirmed by Miss Gumming that Miss Hooper had become Mrs. Mitchell. Mrs. Mitchell came to us three years ago, and her love for English literature and her vivacious way of teaching it has from the very first inspired us. Her most outstanding work is the keen interest she has awakened all through the school in Dramatics. At the close of her first term Mrs. Mitchell produced a Nativity Play, written by the girls of the Fourth Form under her supervision. It was a very great success. The next year the Fifth Form put on Barrie ' s " A Kiss for Cinderella " which was pronounced exceedingly good and reflected great credit on Mrs. Mitchell ' s teaching. Then at the end of this last Christmas term a Carol Pageant — a series of very beautiful tableaux depicting the Christmas Story — was done by Mrs. Mitchell ' s own form, the Fifth Form, again under her direction. We are very sorry to lose Mrs. Mitchell. We all feel she has put so much into the school both as a Form Mistress and as a teacher. We all join in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell great happiness. THE CAROL PAGEANT ON the evening of December 18th the Christmas term was brought to an appropriately beautiful conclusion by the rendition of a Carol Pageant by the members of the fifth form under the able direction of Mrs. Mitchell. The performance consisted of a series of ten tableaux depicting the various well known scenes of the nativity which were performed so simply and yet so colorfully that the audience was held spellbound with admiration. All the characters from the serene Virgin Mary, clad in simple robes of blue to the austere and magnificently robed Wise Men bearing their gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh and the humble shepherds worshipp ing the infant Saviour, seemed in perfect accordance with those of the Bible story and might easily have been transferred from the glowing pages of the New Testa- ment to the stage before us. The story of each tableau was given by girls reading extracts from the Bible written on old world scrolls and the atmosphere of the scenes was greatly supplemented by the singing of the Carol Choir under the direction of Miss Strawbridge and the sound of their clear voices, ringing out over the audience from the gallery, is one that will be long remembered by those who heard it. As in every play the costumes were an all important feature and in each case they were artistically and suitably chosen and served to enhance the beauty of the tableaux. In closing a reference should be made to the new stage lights used for the first time so eflFectively at this pe rformance. I am sure everyone present noticed the added beauty that they gave to each scene and hoped that the installation of these lights fore- told the repetition in the near future of another evening such as we em ' oyed that night. Jacqueline Whitmore, Matric. I, Ross House. [65] ART ASSOCIATION SATURDAY MORNING CLASSES THIS year at the Montreal Art Association, under the presidency of Dr. C. F. Martin, there were held Saturday morning Art Classes for school children, under the age of fifteen. The pupils were chosen from Schools throughout the city and the classes were voluntary; only a very nominal fee being charged to help defray the expenses. At these classes the pupils were given illustrated talks leading up to their practical work in both painting and modelling, and interesting glimpses into the lives of artists and their work. The success of the enterprise speaks for itself. Under the able and enthusiastic direction of Miss Anne Savage there was an average attendance of sixty pupils in drawing and painting, while Miss Ethel Seath taught the principles of clay modelling to an average of twenty pupils each Saturday. A most interesting exhibition of the work of these classes was held during the first week in May. The work showed originality and rhythm, sound grounding in the use of their materials and a pervading sense of thorough enjoyment. Our own School was represented in both painting and modelling by Dorothea Wood, Marjorie Byatt, Janet Dixon and Valerie Heayberd; and though they took no prizes, their work compared very favourably with that of their fellow pupils. This type of Art Class has been held in several Art Galleries of the Dominion, and now Montreal, too has its school class with sheets of paper spread on the floor, pencils and poster paint and lumps of clay, and enthusiastic workers learning the joy of creative expression and, above all, becoming familiar with and part of one of the cultural centres of their community. [66] [67] THE LIBRARY WE should all find something to interest us in this year ' s additions to the lihrary. There is Ferdinand whose bovine ecstasy scarcely needs any words and Hendrick Van Loon ' s " The Arts " — a book not to be undertaken at a sitting, but, with the author ' s illustrations, of continual interest. Grey Owl ' s " Pilgrims of the Wild " , of pathe- tic interest now, and Lord Tweedsmuir ' s " Augustus " — Canada linked with the gran- deur that was Rome. Some old favourites have been replaced — " Don Quixote " , the adventures of the last knight of chivalry and his practical squire Sancho Panza; Mr. Priestley ' s " Good Companions " , " Jane Eyre " , now illustrated, makes Jane and Mr. Rochester more vivid; Rafael Sabatini ' s swashbuckling " Scaramouche " , L. M. Montgomery ' s beloved " Anne of Green Gables " and John Buchan ' s " Dancing Floor " . " Miss Mole " and " Miss Buncle ' s Book " are stories of humorous spinsters of character; Carola Oman ' s " Robin Hood " makes Robin and his merry thieves clearer to us; " King Arthur and his Knights " gives us some of Malory ' s stories with illustra- tions, and Maurice Hewlett ' s " Forest Lovers " , the story of Iseult la Desirous and Prosper le Gai recreates the very atmosphere and romance of medieval England. " The Maker of Heavenly Trousers " by Daniels Vare has a successor in " The Gate of Happy Sparrows " . We hear again of the Five Virtues and Kuniang, but this book is a collection of short stories, not a continuous narrative. Signor Vare ' s " Last Empress " is here too, the amazing story of the last Manchu ruler of China, of her rise to power and her sway over her vast empire. Miss Lorna Lewis has described the life and work of Leonardo, the genius of the Renaissance and Nansen, the Arctic explorer. In " Robinson of England " we have John Drinkwater ' s description of a kindly uncle who delights to show and interpret England ' s fair places to his nieces and nephews. " Boys and Girls of Bookland " gives us Jessie Wilcox Smith ' s conception as Jackanapes, Alice is Wonderland, Hans Brenber and others, together with a brief description of them. We have Komroff ' s " Waterloo " and Margaret Irwin ' s " Stranger Prince " adds a companion to her Minette and Montrose. This time it is Rupert of the Rhine, King Charles ' nephew, the famous soldier and favourite son of Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia, the Winter Qvieen of the Thirty Years ' War. " Antony " , ' a record of youth ' is the biography by Lord Lytton, of his son, a boy of brilliant promise who was tragically killed while flying.

That one of the rarest of nature ' s beautiful sights is the night rainbow — the colours of which are caused by the soft reflected light of the moon during a night rain. Do you know that when a passenger in an airplane views a rainbow from a high altitude, it is a complete circle. That now sound maps are made of the sea bottom so ships in a fog can find their position by comparing their electric soundings with the map. That street cars in Vienna have a measuring mark, four feet four inches from the floor — youngsters taller than the mark must pay full fare. Do you know that Cato did not learn Greek, in which he became very proficient until he was eighty! That there is only one authentic portrait of Columbus. That sour orange trees produce the sweetest orange blossoms! That Allspice is not a mixture of many spices but an individual spice made from the dried berries of the pimento tree. That the English walnut is not English but a native of Asia. That lilacs are natives of Persia and that rhubarb is a native of China. Do you know that there are more than six million different species of insects. That the giraffe is the only quadruped that does not make some characteristic vocal sound. Do you know that the Sahara Desert is larger than the United States. That the leaning tower of Pisa has gone modern, and is floodlit at night. That the Empire State building in New York is the only building in the United States equipped for the mooring of airships! That ice hockey is the fastest game. That Bill Tilden at his top form had a service delivery that travelled a hundred and thirty-one miles an hour! Do you know that the movie studios film practically every type of scenery to be found in the world within two hundred miles of Hollywood! In the making of movies a clear day must be had to shoot rain scenes, and night scenes are best made under a bright midday sun! That a comet ' s tail always points away from the sun regardless of the direction it is going. That a restaurant in Copenhagen offers its patrons a hundred and fifty-seven different kinds of sandwiches! That the Trans-Siberian railroad runs from Leningrad to Vladivostock — five thousand four hundred and eighty miles. That the fastest known motion of stars is four thousand eight hundred miles a second! And lastly, but worth knowing, do you know that Amelia Earhart was the first of her sex to fly the Pacific from Hawaii to California, that she was the first woman to cross the Atlantic by plane and was the first person to fly the Atlantic twice, and she was the first woman to fly an autogiro, and make a non-stop flight across the continent. Facts gathered and compounded by Elizabeth Anne Kendall, Matric II. [71] THE QUEBEC MUSICAL FESTIVAL HE Quebec Musical Festival was held from Monday, March 14th until Wednesday, JL March 23rd. This being its second year there were more entries than last year. The school entered in four groups. The Junior Junior group which consisted ot Remove and Preparatory, the Junior group, forms Lower and Upper I, the Intermediate group, forms II, Upper II and III a and b, and the Senior group, forms IV a and b, V a and b and Matrics I and II. The Junior Juniors sang " Blow away the Morning Dew " and " Three Children Sliding on the Ice " on Friday. The Juniors sang " Who is Sylvia? " and " When as the Mavis, " the Seniors sang " Cargoes " and " The Fairy Song " and we sang " The Blacksmith " and " The Passing of the Moon " all on Thursday. Our adjudicators were Sir Hugh Roberton and Mr. Stewart Wilson. They were both very pleasant and amusing but they were altogether different from the adjudicators of last year. They laid more stress on the interpretation of the songs and they could over- look almost any other faults as long as the spirit was there. The singing was very good but some of the schools did not look as though they were enjoying the songs while others did. Sometimes we got a pleasant surprise when some schools sang much better than we thought they would. Having won two trophies last year we hoped that we might keep up to the standard and get the same two back again or some others, but we did not. We thought that those who did get them certainly deserved them and we will try to get them back next year. This year the Festival was more interesting because we had the High Schools vo compete against as well as the Private Schools, whereas last year the Private Schools; competed against one another and the High Schools were in a different class by themselves. Besides singing, a few of the girls went in for recitation and piano and distinguished themselves by getting very good marks. I am sure we all enjoyed the Festival very much. We owe a great deal to Miss Strawbridge for all her help with the singing and we hope to do justice to her teaching next year. Barbara Ann Smith, Form IIIb, Barclay House.

Mrs. Pidoux was our Captain till after Christmas, when unfortunately we had to lose her, but our Lieutenant Betty Miner became Captain with Frances Earle as Lieutenant. Owing to our increased numbers, a new patrol was formed, and it was called the Scarlet Tanager Patrol. Now we have five patrols. Our Company took part in several outside activities in the world of Guiding this year. The first was the Patrol Leaders ' Competition on December 3rd. Two Patrol Leaders from every company in Montreal go, and they work together in Districts. This year they had to take drill and a game, draw a nature chart and teach a Tenderfoot her test. There were also some surprise items, observation and emergency questions. Snowdon District won, our District coming third. The next was the Singing Competition which was great fun. It is the first time the Company has entered it for many years. The District Competition was held at the church of St. James the Apostle where we were tested in morse, nature, and roll-call drill, and some of us had to dress tiny dolls in five minutes! The 8th Company won. Another Competition for which we entered was the Fairie Shield. This was First Aid work and was very interesting. The Company sent in a team of six, three juniors and three seniors. We came ninth. The Second Class Guides have entered into badge work enthusiastically, and many badges have been gained. Every Tuesday for some time, a lecturer from the St. John ' s Ambulance Association has come and taught us for our Ambulance Badge. It is very interesting work, and we all hope to gain our badges when we take the final test in a week ' s time. There is going to be a Rally again this year at the Forum. Each district is doing a part of the Guide work, and Central District is doing Badge Work. Our Company are [83] Book-Lovers! There is also the Astronomer ' s Badge acted, the Gardener ' s Badge, Laundress, and Fire Brigade. Camp is coming nearer, and there are many of us looking forward to going back again, as well as new campers waiting eagerly to go. A few of us are planning to take our First Class Badge up there, and are working for it now. Our sincerest thanks are due to Captain and Lieutenant and to all those who have made our year the busy and happy one that it was. Mar J OKIE Robinson, Oriole Patrol. A GUIDE ' S DUTY IS TO BE USEFUL Guider Jean was quietly knitting By a brook one day; When a motor-driver hailed her. Shouting in dismay: " Oh! how are we to cross the brook? There is no bridge about We ' re in an awful hurry too, So can you help us out? " Thought Jean: " This little bit of fence Is very old indeed, I ' ll borrow it, I think, because It ' s just the thing we need. " She laid the planks across the brook And over came the car. " Oh! thank you! " cried the motorist " Now tell us who you are. " But Jean replied, " I must not say. That was my good deed for the day. ' Carrol Walsh, Kingfisher Patrol. [84] THE Brownie Pack now numbers twenty-one. Two Brownies, Jean Ruddick and Pamela Aird, became Guides after Christmas and two others have left. There are four Sixes, the Imps, the Elves, the Leprechauns and the Fairies, the latter being a new Six this year. The four Sixers are Margaret Forsyth, Jean Dodds, Elizabeth Brown and Wendy Maclachan. The Pack is fortunate in having Barbara Wickes from the Guides to be their Pack Leader. In November six new Brownies were enrolled and after Christmas six others received their Brownie pins. The Pack has been working hard for their Brownie Tests. Jean Dodds, Joan Bayer, Elizabeth Scrimger, Marion Fox, Sally Pitfield and Daintry Chisholm have all passed their Second Class Test and are working now for the First Class one. Wendy and Margaret are now almost First Class Brownies and will be able to wear their badges very soon. A MEETING OF THE BROWNIES THE moon shone down on the grassy plot in the woods. A large toadstool stood by itself in the centre. Brown Owl flew up to an overhanging branch of a tree ajid perched there. Everything was quiet. Away off a faint owl ' s cry could be heard. That was Tawny Owl who was hastening towards this place. Brown Owl looked up at the moon and called, " Tu-whit-tu-whoo-oo. " There was a soft clap as though many tiny hands had been struck together and immediately about twenty little brown figures appeared and formed a circle around the toadstool. They joined hands and skipped about singing, " We ' re the Brownies, here ' s our aim. Lend a hand and play the game. " The circle disappeared and the little figures ran about playing a game with a big ball of thistledown. The woods rang with the shouts and cries of the tiny voices. After a while, the Brownies put away the ball and divided into three groups. Brown Owl going with one. Tawny Owl with the second and the tall leader with the third. One group gathered vines of all kinds and began tying them together very carefully. Some of the other Brownies made little dishes out of leaves. They brushed away the sticks and stones from a spot on the grass and set out the dishes on it as though they were laying a table. [85] The third group cut off lengths of the knotted vines which the others had made. Using these for skipping ropes, the Brownies practised doing fancy steps. After working at these things for a short time, the little people gathered closely around the toadstool. They played the Brownie game which is called I Spy, and they could see many tiny things which were hidden from other people. Then they sang some of their own little songs. While they were playing and singing, the moon had slipped down behind the trees. Now at a sign from Brown Owl, the Brownies stood up and forming a circle, whispered together, " Where we have been, no one can find. For never a trace do we leave behind; Only the mortals we ' ve helped today, Know that a Brownie has passed this way. " In a moment, all the little figures had disappeared. There was nothing there but a toadstool and two sleepy owls sitting in a tree. Only around the toadstool was a wide circle of grass darker than the rest. A wise person seeing this Circle, would have called it a Fairy Ring.

[91] TRAFALGAR SPORTS NEWS 1937-38 Trafalgar ' s Sports World of 1937-38 has again been most active and most successful under the enthusiastic guidance of Miss Parker. This year sports have taken an even more prominent place in school life because of our new House system. At the beginning of the basketball season Trafalgar ' s Present Girls played the Old Girls; this game was fast and furious, proving a victory for the Present Girls. The usual keen interest was displayed in the school basketball matches, and again we have been able to retain the First and Second Team Cups. The Inter-Class basketball games were very exciting this year, many of the games were very close and the fight for the championship was no easy one. Our congratulations go to Matric. I for winning the Cup. Another source of keen interest was the Inter-House basketball matches between Fairley, Ross, Barclay and Riddell. Many enthusiasts came to cheer their House teams, and Fairley ' s team proved victorious giving points to its house. Last year Trafalgar was invited to go to Dunham and play basketball with the girls of St. Helen ' s. This was a new adventure and proved to be very exciting as well as most enjoyable. This year Dunham has been invited to come to Montreal and be our guests, to play tennis, we are greatly looking forward to welcoming them on Saturday May 14th and hope they enjoy them- selves as much as we did with them. Last June the Annual Tennis Match was played with Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School on our own courts. It was a warm lovely June day and to our delight after very hard games both Trafalgar ' s teams won, the first team playing three long sets. The Tennis Match with the Staff was also very popular and as usual the Staff were victorious. An Inter-House tennis match is going to be played soon, and we expect the non- players will find these thoroughly enjoyable, because the tennis players seem to be evenly divided among the respective houses. Repeating our unexpected victory at Saint-Sauveur a year ago, Trafalgar again won the Private Schools Ski-Meet. Three other schools that competed and ourselves were the guests of the Penguin Ski Club. A magnificent trophy was kindly presented to us by Col. J. H. Molson. Skiing is one of Montreal ' s most popular winter sports, and this winter lessons were given to Trafalgar beginners. The Girls are now energetically practising in their gym lessons and at recess for our Field Day on May 30th at Molson ' s Stadium. Winners will give points to their respective houses, and we all hope that it will be just as big a success as it was last year. [92] r93] THE SKI TEAM Dorothy Staniforth, Isabella Wurtele, Joyce Kendall, Grace Wurtele. [94] THE SKI MEET One Saturday morning in March we arose bright and early to catch the ski train for St. Sauveur. We arrived at the station only to find that no car had been allotted to Trafalgar, but we seized the first seats we could find and sat down with a determination to remain in them even if we were not " competitors " in the Ski Meet. On the way to St. Sauveur after walking to the extreme end of the train we found the rest of the Trafites draped in various positions over the seats. We chatted for a while with them and then climbed over legs, arms, skis, and feet to our own car where we remained until St. Sauveur was reached. Upon arriving at St. Sauveur we discovered we had to ski a mile to Piedmont for the races. The skiers made a brilliant patch of colour against the rather sober back-ground of the snow and gray sky as they skied energetically along the road talking of the coming event. This race was run on a steep trail which twisted in and out of the trees down the side of the mountain; it was in very good condition and quite fast. It was thrilling to see the racer shoot through the opening in the woods and rush down the last open stretch. There was a very large entry in this downhill race and when it was over we went to have lunch. We did not eat with the School which was a mistake judging from the description they gave us later. After dinner we went to the hill where the slalom race was being held. It was getting colder and by now the sun had entirely disappeared. At five o ' clock we returned to the train tired but happy because we had seen " Traf " come out victorious again. Jane Elliot, Form Va, Barclay House. [95] ' TWAS THE NIGHT ' Twas the night of the Gym. Dem, and all through the school All creatures were stirring and trying to keep cool. The windows were lighted and parents going in Heard the hum of excitement — a whispering din! They all had their places — Miss Parker appeared, And so they all knew that the hour had neared, When outsi de on the stairs there arose such a clatter. Each parent sat up: " What on earth was the matter? " The seniors outside with gusto had ' hushed ' And in marched the juniors excited and flushed! With smiles and precision their drill they performed Till at the end with applause they were stormed. The next came and went, and still more and more. The parents were happy and thrilled to the core: " Look, there is my daughter, she ' s all out of time! " " There ' s mine on the rope, how well she can climb ! " " Did you see Kate? She fell off the horse! " " Don ' t mind about that, some have often done worse! " Now they had finished, and the last one was gone. The music struck up — the Grand March was on ! Feet shuffled and tramped till all had come in. And parents leaned forward to find their young kin. How pleased was her father when Sue got an ' L ' . " I ' d never have thought that she did so well. " Then came the sad order — (Which soon raised a shout!) " Will parents stay seated while their daughters pass out! " [96] TENNIS TEAM CRITICISMS FIRST COUPLE Elizabeth Anne Kendall. A strong offensive player, who can defend herself equally well. Peggy Tyndale. A quick player whose drives are more on the defensive side. Her net play is good. SECOND COUPLE Janet Slack. An adaptable player whose drives have much improved. Her service is weak. Marion Haney. A strong offensive player who places the ball well, but her defensive and net play is weak. J. S. Parker.

[100] TRAFALGAR OLD GIRLS ' ASSOCIATION The first annual meeting of the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association was held on Monday, May 9th, in the dining-room of J as. A. Ogilvy ' s Ltd. Forrest Burt read the treasurer ' s report. The bank halance on May 1st was $512.49. The President, Mrs. Russel (Marjorie Lynch), read a report of the year ' s activities. Numerous meetings have been held during the year. There was a lunch at the School on Trafalgar Day, and an Old Girls ' tea was given by Miss Gumming after the Gymnastic Demonstration on Thursday. When Mrs. Williams (Dorothy Russel) and Mrs. Guthrie (Edith a Wood) re- signed from the Executive, their places were taken by Mrs. Davidson (Pauline Hanson) and Mrs. Graeme Gorrie (Catherine Vickers). It was thought best by the Executive to charge a $2.00 annual fee. Magazines at 25 cents each will be available to the Old Girls. All suggestions for the ultimate aim of the Association are welcome. Katharine Buchanan read the slate of officers, which was accepted as read: President — Mrs. Graeme Gorrie (Catherine Vickers). 1st Vice-President — Mrs. A. E. Hankin (Cynthia Bazin). 2nd Vice-President — Mrs. Cyril Flanagan (Elizabeth Baile). 3rc? Vice-President — Mrs. Richard E. Bolton (Betty Robertson). Treasurer — Peggy Tyndale. Secretary — Joan Bann. Miss Winifred Kydd, Dean of Women, Queen ' s University, Kingston, then gave an interesting talk on the Housing System. Pointing out in a witty introduction that this subject presented problems even in Elizabethan days, she then passed on to the St. Pancras Housing Scheme. In 1924 a group of private individuals decided to help the people living in the slums of London. They pulled down houses as others had done before them but with this difference, that they rehoused the tenants. They began modestly, issuing stock which paid, and enabled them to put up plain but good blocks of flats. They interested impor- tant people in their project and in this way gained prestige. Women were trained to become house managers of the new flats; it was their duty to look after the welfare of the tenants, they collected the rent, and through their contact were able gradually to help in many ways, such as suggesting hospitals and lawyers. Nursery schools were started in the flats so that the young children were kept off the streets, and the number of accidents quickly diminished. Money, always important, was raised by clever, but not obnoxious, advertising. For instance, they held openings, to which people like Admiral Jellicoe were invited. The whole project was carried out with the emphasis on the people themselves. They were not being given charity, they paid the same rent as before and the respon- sibility was their own. To-day, this housing project has grown tremendously and is a success because it has a practical and solid foundation. Miss Kydd, in closing, pointed out that we too have slums which need improvement. Mrs. Gorrie thanked the speaker and the meeting was adjourned. PRESIDENT ' S REPORT — 1937-38. I have the honour to present the first Annual Report of the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association. [101] Just about one year ago this Association yawned, stretched, took a deep breath and woke into being. It has been a thrilling experience to watch it grow. From no members to 329 members sounds like a big step — a stride in fact — but it is not in the least remark- able when one considers that our mailing list now contains some 1,100 names and our list of unknown addresses number almost 800. It may be confessed here that growth was undoubtedly stunted early in the year due to the fact that after the first notices were mailed, some 300 cards " walked " from the file into the desk drawer in Room 1 where they rested quietly until about six weeks ago. This may explain our apparent neglect of some of you who had shown yourselves enthusiastic supporters of the Asso- ciation in the beginning. My humble apologies to you all for this gross carelessness. Although I swear I remember nothing, I have a horrid little feeling of guilt about the whole incident which I ' ve not admitted up to now even to the Executive. I do feel, how- ever, that as time goes on and the Association proves its worth, as it must do, more and more Old Girls will be attracted to it, realising that their support, constructive criticism and interest are essential in the life of the School. During the year your Executive has held numerous informal meetings at the School. In December Mrs. Hugh Davidson (Pauline Hanson) was asked to become a member of the Executive to help with the collecting of lost addresses. She consented, and has done excellent work in this connection ever since. On January 10th the Executive regret- fully accepted two resignations: — Mrs. Lyle Williams (Dorothy Russel) as 1st Vice- President and Mrs. J. Harold R. Guthrie (Edith A Wood) as Secretary. I should like here and now to pay tribute to their unfailing support and good work while they were in office — incidentally they are both excellent sleuths. At the request of the Executive, Mrs. Davidson agreed to fill Mrs. Williams ' place as Vice-President for the rest of the year, while Mrs. Graeme Gorrie (Catherine Vickers) consented to act as Secretary in Mrs. Guthrie ' s stead. These appointments were confirmed at the General Meeting held on January 25th. Undoubtedly the highlight of this year ' s activities was the Trafalgar Day Luncheon in the School Assembly Hall on Thursday, October 21st. Having undertaken to celebrate Tra- falgar Day in a " fitting manner " , the Executive saw the day approach with considerable trepidation. With the kind assistance of the Reverend Dr. Donald a short Memorial Service was arranged to take place in the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul immediately pre- ceding the luncheon at the School. A well-filled Church and enthusiastic comments from all quarters after the Service proved the worth of this idea, which, I believe, was first suggested by Miss Gumming. To the Programme Committee — Mrs. Gorrie as chairman, Mrs. Seely, Mrs. Sutherland, and Jean Scrimger — belongs all credit for the success of the lunch. Whoever would have imagined that 325 people could be fed (and served with hot coffee) in the School Gym? Well, now we know that they can if there is a committee like tlie above mentioned, and a good caterer. Furthermore we now know that everyone can have the time of their lives at such a party if there is a good cross-section of middle- aged (forgive me! ), younger, young and very young Old Girls, and a speaker like Senator Cairine Wilson. Judging from answers to the questionnaire sent out in the notice last Fall, the general consensus of opinion seems to favour a $2.00 annual fee. Many people advocated having life members; but upon further and very careful investigation, the Executive [102] felt it would be unwise to accept life memberships as such, at least until such time as the Association was more firmly established. This whole question of fees was discussed at the general meeting on January 25th, the $2.00 fee being adopted and duly entered in the Constitution. By no stretch of the imagination can the reading, discussion clause by clause, and the adoption of a Constitu- tion be called an exciting or even entertaining proceeding — moreover, nearly everyone had heard most of this Constitution before. But do not think too harshly of this boring business meeting on January 25th. Such things as minutes and constitutions and reports have to be in every self-respecting society, we are told — after all " they are but sent to try us! " Our sincere thanks must go to Mrs. Flanagan, Mrs. Gardner, and Mr. Mitchell, who laboured over this imposing document with such magnificent results. It was decided that it would be a good idea if this year ' s Magazine could be sent free to all members of the T.O.G.A. Owing to increased subscription and new methods of collecting advertising, we were able to make an arrangement with Miss Bryan whereby magazines would be supplied to the Old Girls at 25 cents per copy. It was felt that this expenditure would be worth while as a means of keeping the out-of-town members in touch with the School. In January the suggestion was made that a meeting of a social nature should be held, preferably in the form of a tea with a guest speaker. The Executive considered this idea, but found that all possible dates for such a meeting would conflict rather badly with the School Gym. Demonstration. The most logical solution seemed to be to combine the two. Miss Gumming very kindly offered to serve tea to all Old Girls attending the Demonstration on Thursday, March 10th. Notices to this effect were sent to members only, as the seating capacity in the Gym is limited — and we were optimistic! Unfor- tunately, Thursday is still one of the week ' s worst days for meetings, so comparatively few were able to attend. Those of us who were there saw a most interesting Gym. Demon- stration and enjoyed ourselves to the full. All this is backward looking, and you may with justification wonder what has happened to our aim and object to do something for the School. May I therefore explain again, as I have done before, that it seemed better to your Executive to build as solid a foundation as possible, to become as fully organized as possible during this year without obligating ourselves to achieve any set goal. So we would ask you to wear your " thinking caps " for yet one more Summer in the hope that next Fall we may gather still more suggestions to add to those already submitted to us in order that we may move forward with one common purpose binding us together. And now, on your behalf I should like to thank Miss Gumming and Miss Bryan for their unfailing and enthusiastic interest in the Association, and their willingness at all times to help in whatever way they could with sound advice and ready hospitality. I find it difficult to say enough in praise of the Executive you gave me. Every one of them, including the two who had to resign, has been unstinting of her time, energy and talents. Finally, in closing, I should like to say that I feel it has been a great privilege to be your first President. It has meant many pleasant and unexpected contacts with people I might not otherwise have met, and you have added to that the thrilling sense of your support and co-operation — for all of which I thank you most sincerely. May 9th, 1938. Respectfully submitted, Marjorie Russel. [103] TRAFALGAR OLD GIRLS ' ASSOCIATION Treasurer s Report for the Year 1937-38 — read at the Annual Meeting, May 9, 1938.

GENERAL NEWS Barbara Barnard has been doing well in her first year of Physical Education at McGill. She has just won the Lieutenant-Governor ' s Bronze Medal for General Pro- ficiency. Congratulations, Barbara! Frances Pressick is practically finished learning how to prescribe " pink pills for pained people. " One more year will find her a full-fledged M.D. Mary Beard (Mrs. Magor) is migrating to a mansion in Hampstead complete with two daughters. Peggy Jamieson (Mrs. MacDonald) has an interest in Moth Haven (Yarn Room, Mountain St. ) . Good luck. Peg ! We hear that Eileen Peters can be seen anywhere, anytime, so long as you look for her at committee meetings of anything! In her spare time she is thinking up decorations for the T.O.G.A. Dinner (we hope ! ) If they gave away warships with fellowships. Alma Howard would have quite a nice fleet by now! She picked up her latest one for doing something nice with mice! We are sorry not to be more specific, but anyway, congratulations. Alma! We hear that Margot Seely and Anna Thompson, who were both at the McGill [104] Library School during the year, have done well in their final exams and are now full- fledged librarians. Kay Stanfield has a book-shop in Kingston and a very good one too, we hear. Jean Jamieson (Mrs. Chapman) and Margot Grindley (Mrs. Furst) are leisurely luxuriating in Lucerne, P.Q., and from what we can gather, bringing up their respective infants on banana diets. It was good to see Jean at the T.O.G.A. Dinner. Mary Grant is having a trying time attempting to assist at her sister ' s marriage, going to California and training a dog, all at one and the same time. Due to her Trafalgar education, she is doing quite nicely at all three ! On the other hand, we have NoRAH Sullivan (Mrs. Glassford), who bemoans the fact that there was no course at the " Traf " which covered the building of gingerbread houses, or for that matter, detachable mermaids ' tails on folding water-lilies! The two Roy girls. Norma and Helen, are doing things. Norma is bewildering a bank, and Helen is battling bugs at the General. Forrest Burt had to take a " sup " in Aquatics the other day. Tut, tut! Forrest, this won ' t do ! We hear on fairly reliable authority that Marjorie Lynch (Mrs. Russel) is Presi- dent of the T.O.G.A., and a very good one at that. Seems to us that we have seen her at the meetings! In her spare time she practises reading Constitutions. DEDICATED! To any Trafalgar Old Girl who has not received a notice from the Association. Please, we beg of you, don ' t sit and brood about it. Probably you were one of the most illustrious pupils, the entire staff beamed on you, ordinary mortals like us hardly dared to nod to you. Or perhaps you excelled at basketball. You and five other stalwart fellows won cups for the School. Your tunic was bedecked with stars, stripes and other hard- won decorations, and yet, YOU have been forgotten. YOU who positively exude the old school tie spirit. " Ah, " you say, " Such is the reward of fame. " You have a right to be annoyed but in our defence let us say that we have gazed at your name and probably said, " Gazooks! There was a girl! " Or possibly looked at your picture and said, " Was she not fair to see? But who is she now? And where? . . . " We search, we telephone, we do everything but advertise and in the end we know only that you were— quote — " Such a nice girl who married a man called Robert something and moved to somewhere out of town. " You can see that the Postal Authorities would NOT be interested in this information so — you don ' t get a notice. And so, dear Old Girl, let US do the brooding! Our young lives are being frittered away searching for you, gray hairs are rapidly dulling erstwhile shining heads, brows are furrowed and eyes downcast while we Brood, Brood, Brood ! Couldn ' t you — Wouldn ' t you save us while there is yet time by sending in your maiden name, married name, address, etc.? EVEN IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BECOME A MEMBER.

We were especially interested in the Woodlands Magazine, which came to us all the way from Glenely in South Australia.

It is supposed to be a native of Southwestern Asia and the Mediterranean region. There are two types, the bitter and sweet. The bitter almond appears to be the original, the sweet may have been an accidental variety. Today the latter is grown extensively in Southern Europe and in California. The almond was known Neilson ' s use only the finest selected almonds in their confections. For example, the Burnt Almond Bar — the aristocrat of all Chocolate Bars — contains the choicest of freshly roasted almonds and rich, delicious French style chocolate. You ' ll enjoy it — any time. THE BEST CHOCOLATE MADE in England in the 11th century as the " Eastern Nutte-Beam. " It is used to some extent in medicinal and other preparations, but the nuts are chiefly used for eating. There are hard shell, soft shell and some specially thin- shelled varieties known as paper shells. The long almonds of Malaya, known as Jordan almonds and the broad almonds of Valencia are the most valued.
