As our frontispiece this year, we are very pleased to have a photograph of our teachers. We have always wanted a group picture of our mistresses and I think that it is the first time that such a picture has appeared in our " Mag " and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them very much for it. When School opened last September we were al l very distressed to learn of the death of one of our mistresses, Mademoiselle Gabillet. All whom she taught were deeply touched by the loss of her services to the School. Mademoiselle took a great interest in each girl she taught and especially in the Guides. Her work was taken temporarily by Mademoiselle Boette who left after a few months to work for the Free French Forces of General De Gaulle. In her place we welcome Mademoiselle DuBois. We congratulate Miss Box on the presentation of the Gymnastic Demonstration which was marked particularly by the precision and the excellence of the group per- formances. Although the efforts of our Basket Ball and Ski teams did not result in victory, we were a close second in both events. We congratulate the Study on their double victory. An innovation this year was the forming of a Junior Basket Ball team. Several of our girls have brought honour to " Traf " during the year. Nora Newman was placed third in the Provincial Victory Loan Essay Contest. Charlotte Scrimger and Edith Mather gained second and third places in the Essay Competition on the " Appre- ciation of the Masterpieces in Art " which we all had the opportunity of seeing this winter. Denise Craig was also rewarded for her efforts in the contest. Joan Staniforth and Betty Sutherland brought distinction by capturing all individual honours in the Senior and Jvinior divisions in the Interscholastic Ski Meet at St. Sauveur. [13] The vast extciiHioii of llie war (liiriiijj; iImk y ' ar lian a(l(lc J an fvcii Lrn i-r loiic to school life, especially since recently it has spread to our sister Dominion, Australia and to the Far East. The work of our Junior Red Ooss, under the capahle guidance of Mi«s Hicks, has been j reatly increased durinf:; the year. Many arti ;les have been knitted hy the girls and are being sent regularly to the Red ( ross Heaclquarters. During the year the School has had several lectures which were of great interest. Miss Hazel and Mr. Humphreys brought home to us the needs of the West. Rishofi Martin and Bishop Fleming visited us also and were given a hearty welcome. Recently we had the great pleasure of seeing moving pictures about the work the women are doing in this war over in England, and the important place they are taking. The Houses have all had a successful year and great enthusiasm was shown in the Spelling Bee, Junior Music Competition, Inter-House Basket Ball matches and General Knowledge Test. The Prefects have been aided by the newly created Sub-Prefects from the Fifth Form. They are Rae Hunter, Lois Tyndale, Dorothy Burden, Joan Erzinger, Harriet Anderson and Mary Mitham. As we go to press we are very sorry to hear that we are to lose, at the end of this year, one of our Staff — Miss Abbott. This will be a great loss to the School as Miss Abbott has for the last ten years encouraged Art in all classes. We often see posters adorning the corridors, which were all part of Miss Abbott ' s teaching. Not only did she teach Art in the School, but aroused great enthusiasm among the pupils for this subject. Every year, countless people have enjoyed the Art Exhibition which has been supervised by Miss Abbott. We regret very much that she is leaving and we wish her the best of luck in the years to come. The Forsyth Cup awarded to the Senior Girl who has made the most of her oppor tnnities, showing herself friendly and helpful to all, was given to Peggy Muir. The Inter-House Shield, presented by Mrs. Wynne Robinson, was won last )ear by Gunniiing Mouse.

BRYAN TRAFALGAR girls all over Canada will be glad to hear that Miss Ellen K. Bryan, so long and intimately associated with our School, has been appointed Head Mistress of Crofton House, Vancouver. We congratulate Crofton House, and we believe that there is a bright future in store for the School of which Miss Bryan is the Head. Trafalgar has indeed been fortunate to have had for twenty-four years such a teacher as Miss Bryan, and it is as a teacher that we think of her first. A rare personality, richly endowed, she has devoted herself unstintingly to the School. Her love of learning and high scholarship have been an inspiration to all who have come in contact with her brilliant mind. She has the power of calling forth the ' ery best in her pupils, and kindles, in even the slowest, the desire for higher things. Whether it is English, Latin or Greek, she illuminates the subject with the radiance of her own spirit. As a teacher of English Literature she is without peer. Let anyone who has been taught by her pick up a Shakespeare play, or a book of poems, and, across the years. Miss Bryan ' s words come back, as clearly as when they were first heard, and, for a time, we are taken again into [15] " the realms of fiold " . It was more than the kiiowh-df e of the partieular poem or play that she gave us: it was an understanding of, and love for, literature which have Htayed with us and strengthened us for life. " A man ' s reach should exceed his grasp " ; " the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars " : " We have hut faith, we cannot know " : these linf s we remember, not so much as Browning ' s, Shakespeare ' s or Tennysoji ' s, hut because Miss Bryan made them real to us, by what she said, and by what she herself was. In the art of teaching Classics, too. Miss Bryan has no rival. I.atin and Greek, those tj-easure-houses of literature, too often glibly called " dead " languages, send forth their ageless message again to those of us whom she has taught. Under her stimulating guidance, the rudiments of grammar, " porto, portas, portat " , and " hie, haec, hoc " , were not just lessons to be laboriously memorized, but keys to the mode of Greek and Roman thought, and vital stepping-stones to the delights of literature that lay ahead. Homer, Vergil and Cicero, were not merely names, but real authors, speaking to us across the centuries; for Miss Bryan clothed them again with the living spirit and brought to life for us the Forum of Rome and the Agora of Athens. To try to estimate what she has done for the School, quite apart from her teaching, is almost impossible. No girl ever went to her for help without receiving it — " good measure, pressed down and running over " . Her school day was never measured by the clock. To the Sixth Form, in particular, she has been " guide, philosopher and friend " . She shepherds the prefects through their difficulties, advising, encouraging, often drawing out more than they themselves believed was there, thus training them to be of service to the School, and later to the community. Aware of new movements, she quickly saw the possibilities of the House system, and it is largely due to her planning and devotion that the Houses have become the centre of School activities. The Magazine is a tribute to Miss Bryan ' s organizing power. With the cooperation of the entire School, the spirit of each year is reflected in its pages, and it stands, a record of the life of the School. In that, as in everything she does, she is unsparing of her time and of herself, and, like all great givers, she knows not what she gives. To her fellow-teachers she has been indeed a friend. It was as if she held the torch high for us, and lighted the way. Her help and advice have been invaluable, and some of us are profoundlv grateful to her for helping us " find our feet " . It is difficult to believe that Miss Bryan is leaving Trafalgar. It is only rarely in the life span uf any school that a teacher as gifted comes its way. She will carry to her new work the heartfelt wishes of us all. She has shown us how to be loving and patient, how to work joyously and courageously, how " to give and not to count the cost " . Her itiHpiralion and influi nce will live on, a shining light, in the hearts and minds of those who liav ' known and loved her. Ave alque vale, o doniina carissima; aliani tihi similem vix reperiemus. 116 MISS ABBOTT TT IS with {jreat rejiret that the School lias learned that Miss Ahbott will not he with us next year. Miss Abbott came to Traf alijar in the Autumn of 1931, and during her years among us has made a very definite contribution to the life of the School. By her own enthusiasm she has kindled a keen dp«ire for work in all her pupils — who have learned from her that art is not merely a school subject — but an expression of life. Many happy hours have been spent in the Stvidio, and in particular the Thursday afternoon special art class has been greatly appreciated. There, Juniors and Seniors mingled happily together, and Miss Abbott seemed to have time and attention for them all. The posters, announcing each school event, were done under her direction. If signs were needed for any occasion — numbers for the hymn board, special placards for the Houses, one invariably heard, " We ' ll ask Miss Abbott " , and without the slightest hesitation the request was granted, and the work was done. Miss Abbott has always taken a keen interest in the life of the School. She has on several occasions been a member of the Staff Tennis Team, and has been a loyal supporter of all our activities. Her steadiness and courage in the face of difficvilty, her willing cooperation, and her unfailing sympathy have made her a valued and trusted member of the Staff, and Trafalgar will be the poorer for her going. GIFTS TO THE SCHOOL During the year several gifts have been received by the School. The Trafalgar Shield, handsomely carved in Indian wood, was given last June by Marguerite Packard, whose brother had the work specially done in India. It now hangs proudly in the School Office. The Reverend Mr. McLean, who visited us on Trafalgar Day, appropriately presented the School with a copper plate made from Victory Copper given by the Lords of the Admiralty. It has Nelson ' s ship engraved upon it and also Nelson ' s famous words " England expects every man to do his duty. " We use the plate now every month for collecting our Mission Money. Another gift was a framed copy of the British Children ' s Prayer, presented by Mr. Cronyn. We are very grateful to these kind friends and also to Mr. Grimley and Mr. Dimlop who have given us many gramaphone records for our Music Library. [1-7] HOW I CAN HELP CANADA ' S WAR EFFORT IVE YEARS ago the youth of Canada did not know what the real meaning of war JL was. Oh yes, they knew that wars did happen, in Spain and China, yes, but never in the western hemisphere, that was impossible — then. But not now. Our coasts are getting used to blackouts at night, and although the sound of enemy planes over Montreal would certainly surprise us, it would be, by no means, an impossibility. A pleasure trip abroad in the summer, down south in the winter, we didn ' t think anything of it then, now it ' s unheard of. A fancy was taken to some dress in a store- window. I bought it if it wasn ' t too expensive. Soon our clothes are to be rationed to so many dresses a year. Until that time does come, I can help by not wasting my money in unnecessary articles, and spending the money saved on War Savings Certificates and Victory Bonds. Our parents are working harder perhaps than most of us realize. I can help them and save them extra steps and trouble by doing messages for them, and by doing things of my own accord, before I have to be told to do them. The Red Cross, and many other war-time organizations need my help. I can knit, sew and work for them, and give them my money imtil it hurts. I can carefully salvage articles of metal, paper, rubber and many other things which our Government urgently needs. And then there is the most serious job of the youth of Canada today, that of education. Being young, we often don ' t realize liow very serious it is; for we are the men and women of the (Canada of tomorrow, a new ( anada which will have to be built uf» out of the cliaos and niin of a rno(h ' rn world war. We cannot do it if we are not well- ( Prize Essay) [18 I trained, if our minds liave not been fitted to discipline and work. The opportunity is there, it remains for us to take good advantage of it. My contribution to Canada ' s war eflfort is as small as a drop of water in a boundless sea, but if we all thought of our contributions as being small, and consequently not needed, what would happen? Our land would lie crushed under an ' iron heel ' , beneath the glare of a ' rising sun ' . That must not happen. Our fathers and brothers, and women too, are fighting for us. They are enduring hardships which we can only imagine. They are fighting with all their might so that Freedom may not die; fighting for the democracy not only of our own country, but of the world. Canada is our inheritance, youth of Canada. We must not fail her. We will save, fight, salvage, work, sacrifice, and give everything we ' ve got to her war effort. The torch of victory, and of the liberty of the world, will not go out because we faltered. Nora Newman, Form Vb., Ross House. PRAYER OF CANADIAN CHILDREN When evening steals o ' er land and sea, A nation ' s children kneel to pray In homes that stretch from coast to coast. From sovithern lakes to Hudson ' s Bay. And high above, in realms of light. The angels watch with tender care And bless each nodding curly head. For God will hear a children ' s prayer. " Dear Lord, we thank thee that this day Has not been marred by sounds of strife. For thou hast given us peace, and more, A chance to live a happy life. Now as we close our eyes in sleep We pray, O God, stretch forth thine hand. Protect thy children everywhere From danger in their war-torn land. And help us. Lord, in thy good time, To gain a long-sought victory. Give us brave hearts and purpose firm To keep our country strong and free. " Harriet Anderson, Form Va., Barclay House. [19] WIND ! Wind — whistling round the eaves, Tossing all the leaves In the wood. Wind — whining through ihe oraeks. Roaring round the hacks Of the barns. Wind — driving through the rain, Blowing up the lane Round the shacks. Wind — ra ;ing up tlic hay, (Phasing clouds away From the world. Wind — clearing off our minds. Wiping off the signs Of tlie war. Wind wlii|)piiig up llic sea. Lashing ' gainst tlu- quay (Near the beach. Elizabeth Maxwell, Form Vb., Barclay House, HOW BUYING VICTORY BONDS HELPS ME AND UY Victory Bonds for Victory. How often we hear that phrase, but how often do we U take its advice? Even if we do think about it, we are apt to leave the buying to someone else, concluding that those who have the money are the ones that should buy victory bonds. But that is not so, for if only we would realize it, buying bonds is an easy way to save money: for in buying bonds, the buyer is saving his money, and in so doing helps the democracies to save their freedom. Buying victory bonds helps the nation, and in that way helps vis, for we are the nation ' s people. Perhaps if we realized what we are doing for our country by buying bonds, we would buy more of them. Firstly, we buy the bond, thus saving our money, and at the same time lending it to the Government. What does the Government use it for? It uses it to keep our vast munition plants going, to build more ships, more planes, more guns to send to our fighting forces in the not-so-distant fields of battle. For the field of battle is creeping closer as the days go on, the battlefield is growing larger; it is by no means an impossibility that it might stretch to the shores of North America. If only Canadians would realize this, they would see how great is our country ' s need: for if this country was struck by the hand of war, we would need planes, tanks, ships and guns to defend our own sliores as well as ihe shores of other lands. Our production of munitions grows larger. If that is to be, the Government must have the money to do so, and that money musi !)( ' ours, for ( ' anada is our country. MY FAMILY (Prize Essay) ' riiiiik of our hravc men who ferry bombers across llie Atlantic, who command laiiks that roll over the biirnino; sands of Africa, who stood their fjround until the last, at Hong Kong; who stand at England ' s side in the dusk of night, piercing the sky with eyes that know no fear, who stand on the decks of destroyers, who daringly raid the cities of Germany; these men of ours are giving all they have, surely it is not much for us to help them by giving so little. By buying victory bonds you ensure the democratic way of life which you want to lead after the war is over. In Canada we are only asked for money. In Germany the people are compelled to give everything that will be of service to their Government. Here we are a democratic people, loyal to the country we serve; there, they are but slaves who move at the will of a dictator whose iron heel is slowly getting weaker. If peace, the hope of the world, is to be accomplished, and happiness to come to us again; if the barbarians that threaten us are to be crushed, then everyone must do his part. You can do your bit by buying victory bonds. I WAS looking in a shop window the other day and saw all the different kinds of shoes, as I went in I was wondering what kind I would take . . . The old shop-keeper came up to me and asked what kind I would like, so I told him I was just out of school and wanted a pair that would do me for a while to wear everywhere. I remembered the nice pair of sandals in the window so I asked him if I could see a pair like those. The old man went away and came back very soon with about ten different kinds of shoes as he showed them to me he said, — " Now young lady you are just out of school so it is very important that you get a pair of shoes you like so that you may walk comfortably through the hardships that the road of life brings, you see these shoes, these sandals are very fine but they do not last. Many a girl like you went out into life with them but came back very soon, they were all worn out and old before their time. Now take these " Mi he showed me a pair of pumps with high heels. " Now these shoes will give you good wear if you walk on flat ground but go down a hill and you may pull off the heel, walk on a rocky soil and you will sprain your ankle. Some people, naturally, are very satisfied with these, so are they with the sandals because they are so used to being hurt that they do not care any more, or at least they pretend they don ' t. There are those who are too proud or rather too stupid Nora Newman, Form Vb., Ross House. J? to come hack ainJ adiiiil llicy iiiadi; a niiHtakc hccauKc you know vvc.ry one of u» can make mistakes, remember that. Then; are also iIiokc wlio { et shoes that are loo small for them to go around Haying they have small feed, even that is very silly heeause they walk through life leaning on everyone or everylliirig ihey meet, they make everyone around them imhappy. If J were you 1 would buy these oxfords; they are very comfort- able and look neat, with these you may walk on any roa l of life or anything that may be on that road. " " I am yomig " , I said, " do you think I want to wear these shoes? Why that is tlie kind I had in school, no, please give me the [)umps, they look so much smarter. " The old man looked at me as I gaily walked out, he was sad, yet 1 said to myself: " The others sprained their ankles because they did not know how to walk: they were not careful. I am positive I can do better. " Renee Bissonnette, Form Vb., Fairley House. THE HYPOCRISY OF HUMAN LIFE " Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile; And cry content to that which grieves my he irt. And wet my cheek with artificial tears; And frame my face to all occasions. " HUMAN life is indeed full of hypocrises, and I think one of the most frequent is the practice of telling lies. If you went up to someone and told him he was a liar, he would immediately deny it. And yet, I doubt if there are many people in the world today who have not told one lie, however small, during the past week. I am sure most people have heard of the disastrous consequences, in the play " NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH " of the man ' s promise to tell nothing but the truth for twenty-four hours. Most people have been brought up to be truthful, but there is that horrible moment when your best friend asks what you think of her new hat. You think privately that it is hideous, but say aloud: " Isn ' t that sweet! And the colour suits you so well! " I think people in the shops are most unfortunate in this way, for by their code, " The cu stomer is always right. " Pope has written a very apt couplet on one of these social lies: " Before her face her handkerchief she spread. To hide the flood of tears she did not shed. " As well as social lies, there are written lies, by which I mean advertisements. These can he seen all over, in the daily newspapers, magazines, street cars, and now they are being spoken over the radio. Everyone knows that children do not cry for a certain medicine, and that such-and-such a soap does not make clothes a shade brighter. Yet ihcHc lies are seen everywhere. A type of hypocrisy especiially prominent loday is thai shown by Hitler and his Nazis. One of the excuses given by them when they invaded Poland was that they were [22] protecting Poland from Britain. Excuses of this sort have been made by the Germans when they invaded other countries, also. " In open joe may prove a curse. But a pretended foe is worse. ' ' Everybody talks nowadays about the beauty of civilization, and the horror of uncivilized days when men tortured their enemies. But are we any better today? Is the bombing of fighting men and civilians alike, and the persecution of the Jews — is this a great improvement on those " savage " days? It is only ourselves who can answer this question, and tell whether this " civilized " world is one of our greatest hypocrisies or not. Lois Tyndale, Form Vb., Fairley House.

CAESAR RETURNS Scene: The scene is laid by the bank of a stream on a sunny spring afternoon. A middle-aged man of small stature and military bearing is resting beneath a large Weeping Willow. A teen-aged girl with new rubberboots, a fishing-rod and a guilty conscience meanders cautiously along the stream until she suddenly observes the stranger who has been calmly regarding her approach. Girl: (Startled) Oh! — I — (glancing nervously about her) — I was just — Man: (Warmly) Good afternoon! (with enthusiasm) Won ' t you be seated? Girl: (111 at ease) Well, thanks very much, but, I ' ve an appointment with a trout upstream — Man: (Urgently) You must stay! I ' ve a message for you. Girl: (Puzzled and agitated) A message? Man: (Persuasively) Yes, for you. Girl: (With an air of resignation) Oh, all right! (She sits down, placing the pail of worms between them.) I haven ' t much time. [23] Man: (( omiiif ; directly to the |)(»inl ) Do you Im-Hcvc in ni l ' iii|)Ky liOHi8? Girl: What! — er — 1 ha your pardon? Man: Do you believe in llie transmigration of tli(; houI ; Girl: (Emphatically) Of course not! Man: I do. Girl: (Alarmed) Who are you, sir? Man: As it happens, I ' m a lawyer; but, for an hour eacii year 1 have the power to remember my former lives — the most interestin};; of which was that of the mighty Julius Caesar. Girl: " Art thou some god, some angel or some devil " — Man: Do you believe me? Girl: I ' m trying terribly hard to make up my mind. — (annoyed j you said you had a message. Caesar: Ah, yes! — The allied nations will win this war — Girl: (Rising) Well, thank you, Mr. Caesar! Now, if you ' ll excuse me — Caesar: I said, " the allied nations will win this war " on one condition! Girl: (Amused) Yes? Caesar: On the condition that every individual does all he can by sacrifice and service, to help his country ' s war effort. Girl: (Eagerly) We do! All our organizations and everything — Caesar: Now, wait a moment! Are you a faithful member of (the girl pales, con- science stricken) aren ' t you supposed to be attending a Red Cross Meeting, this afternoon ? Girl: (Embarrassed) Yes — bvit! — such a perfect day for fishing! Who would criticise me for spending an afternoon in the open? Caesar: We tyrants have found it easy to overcome nations, the people of which neglect their duty. Girl: But, the other members are all at the meeting! Caesar: (Sharply) I have told you, young woman, that you will win this war, only if each and every person does his duty ! Girl: (Meekly) Yes, sir. SILENCE Caesar: (Changing the svibject Have you ever studied my life — at school? " am constant as the northern star Of whose true fix ' d and resting quality There is no fellow in the firmament. " (jirl: Yet Brutus said you were ambitious. Caesar: ( Reminiscently ) 1 was a great conqueror; I brought many captives home to Rome " where ransoms did the general coffers fill.

Soon, your wbole community would be enthusiastic and the St. Lawrence would tremble underneath her banks to hear the replication of their response ! Girl: " Ob, Julius Caesar, thou art mighty yet! " — Are you going now? Caesar: I am, but, before I do — " Lend me your ears. " You have a great responsi- bility, if you ' re stubbornly selfish enough to neglect it, you — not only your country ' s political leaders and military generals — but you and all your generation will be blamed for the downfall of democracy. Your future depends not upon your stars — but on yourselves. Farewell ! ( disappears ) . Girl: " Live a thousand years. " I shall never forget what ' s happened this afternoon! (pensively) He had rather a distinguished face and seemed intelligent — but, trans- migration — How funny! (She gathers up fishing paraphernalia and exits). Jane Hildebrand, Form IV b., Ross House. MY IMPRESSIONS OF THE MASTERPIECES OF THE ART GALLERY (Prize Essay) THOSE pictures which have been displayed at the Art Gallery for more than three weeks now are symbols of past life and history of many comitries; they express the actual life and customs which have been kept for us, and future generations, on these canvases. Montrealers are both lucky and honoured to have these paintings, even for a short while, because these priceless masterpieces have been collected from the four corners of the world, and brought here, to America — to the only comparatively safe spot left in the world. I found everyone of those paintings fascinating, partly because they are so famous, but mostly because of the characteristics and style of the separate painters which showed so clearly on canvas; for example the wonderful depth of Gainsborough ' s " Harvest Waggon " , I think no other painter could get quite the same look of reality as Gainsborough has in this painting, 1 almost expected to see the waggon moving along the road into the distance, and hear the dog barking up at the peasants in the waggon. Another of my favourites is Constable ' s " Salisbury Cathedral " . I know it is the favourite of many, and I think I know why; the colouring is so soft and realistic, I like the soft [25] l)i " (»wii o( llie trees and loliafjc, and llic clrfiHls Hcurry iiijj; l)cliin J llic hlc(-| le i i tli - elmreli; il is .siicli a well-balanced pic liirc, and llie main objeel Hlands out tso clearly in tlie night. Turner ' s " The Slave Ship " seems to bespeak torture in every corner; the blood red sky, the floundering ship, and the bodies of liumans and beasts seems a little over- powering, too dramatic, and too highly coloured. As to the religious paintings, I liked El Greco ' s " St. Francis in Meditation " . ' I here is such a look of pious quietude in his face as he kneels praying with the skull in big hands. Another one I liked was the picture of (Christ with the crown of thorns on his head. In that painting there was so much suff ering in his face that one wondered at the inhumanity of man. There were many of the portraits I liked; Fragonard ' s " ( hild with (Cherries " , Hals cynical looking " Michiel de Wael " , Hogarth ' s " The Graham Children " , and especially Devis ' " Master Simpson " . This I think, is my favourite, he looks such a lovable child with his bright colouring and handsome clothes and he looks so very human clutching the little dog in his arms. " The Graham Children " is, of course, very famous and no wonder; they must have been very beautiful children, their clothes are so dainty and rich and the picture shows the atmosphere in which they lived. The most realistic pictures are, I think, " The Arsenal of Venice " and " The Linen Cupboard " . The latter seems very domestic with the little girl apparently playing golf while her mother puts away the linen. On the whole I liked Poussin ' s " St. Peter and St. John healing the lame man " , it is the kind of picture that looks as if one could step into and not feel out of place. It seems a little too full of figures, but they all have such different expressions that one enjoys looking at it because there is so much to see. One cannot overlook the paintings of Canada. The Laurentian scenes are ones which no one wants to miss because they show scenes we all know of the beauty of Canada in such vivid colouring. These masterpieces will be gone soon, probably never to return in the same number, certainly not until the world is again settled in times of peace and harmony, because they belong in the great galleries of London and Europe where they originated. While they are liere they will continue to teacli us how common expressions of face and beauty of landscape can be preserved on canvas. ClIAHLOTTE SCUIMGER, Form YIa., Ross House. THE TELEPHONE There it goes again — Perhaps this time for me? — Someone calling Mother Asking her for tea. It looks so very innpcent Lying there so neat, You ' d never think it had the power To bring one any treat. This time sounds important I ' m sure it is for me — I ' ll sit here with fingers crossed, And then just wait and see. Yes — it was for me — but oh It ' s more than I can stand, Just some careless soul again. Some lessons to demand. Again the merry jingle — A most insistent ring — I ' m absolutely certain Excitement it will bring. Now I feel so happy, You can tell it at a glance. Because that special person, Has asked me to the dance. Frances Gyde, Form Va., Barclay House. PLACE D ' ARMES PLACE D ' ARMES is the historical centre of Montreal. Here stands a statue of the City ' s Founder with his flag outstretched to take possession of the soil. It was virgin forest in the time of Maisonneuve, when, on an evening in May, 1642, four little vessels cast anchor near the bank of the St. Lawrence. These ships contained the settlers who laid the foundations of the village of Ville Marie, later to become the commercial metropolis of Canada. Then the square became the site of the old parish church; next a public park with fine trees and lawns; and today it is an asphalt-paved square in the heart of Montreal. The square itself is named in commemoration of Maisonneuve ' s feat of arms in one of the raids of the hostile Indians. During a sortie made by the French the Indians came on in svich numbers that the retreat was given. Maisonneuve found himself svirrounded, but he faced his foes without flinching. The Iroquois chief sprang forward to bear Iiim down, but Maisonneuve grappled the man and managed to shoot him. The attacking Indians fled with the body of their chief — and the City was saved. [27] Sii«l) were llie (laiif erH Hiirroiiii(liii the life of llie firHt inliahilanlK of Ville Marie, wliicli the sculptor, Phili[)p)e Hehert, has repreHeiiled at Uie coriiern of tlie MaiHonneuve monument in Place (FArmes. This monument is well worth study by all those who are interested in the early days of Montreal. Standinjii; on the pedestal is Maisonneuve him- self, proudly holdinfj; the hanner of France. Afiain he is shown defeatin} the Iroquois near this very spot. Other essential fiffures in the early history of Montreal also appear — the Associates of France who made the foundinfi of the ( ity possible; the little (iroup as they heard mass on the shore the day they landed; Jeanne Mance, who established tlie first hospital, Hotel Dieu; Major Lambert Closse, who had the military charf e of the town, and, underneath his arms, his dofi, Plotte, looks out — a wornderful watch dog who once warned the little garrison of Iroquois lurking in the woods. There is also another hero of an early battle, Dollard; and finally an Iroquois, representative of the tribe to whom these colonists owed most of their trouble. Let us leave the monument now and examine the square more closely. Come first of all to the south side of Place d ' Armes and look at the ancient seminary erected in 168.5 with unwrought stone from the fields. It is the residence of the gentleman of St. Sulpice — the first clergy of Ville Marie. Shut off from the rush and clamour of the street by an ancient stone wall, this bviilding with its quaint belfry and clock tower is a favourite subject, for artists, as is the old gateway in front. Nowhere else in the City does one get such a striking contrast between old and new. To the east of this we see the square towers of the Parish Church of Notre Dame. Across the square for more than two centuries there has issued from its doors a religious procession in all the splendour of gorgeus garments, with smoking censers and banners waving in the wind, to bless the homes of the Faithful. Across Place d ' Armes, too, there passed to this church the great funeral of Marguerite Bourgeois, whose name has come down to us as the foundress of the first girls ' school in the City, and who shares with Jeanne Mance the title of " The Mother of Montreal " . But the saddest scene of all in the French history of Montreal was enacted in Place d ' Armes in 1760 — the year following the defeat of Quebec. For here the morning after the capitulation of the City to the British came the French regiments, one after another, and laid down their arms. The square was the official centre of the little settlement of the olden days. In it stood the great Gadoy ' s well where everyone came for water. Across it strode the French governors of Montreal to their chateau — the Chateau de Ramezay. Nearby was the old (jourt House, and, to the east, the City Hall now stands. What changes have taken place since the time two centuries ago when it was unsafe to venture along St. James farther west than McGill Street! The history of the square is the Hlory of the rise of Montreal to its present national greatness, to which the great biiihlings which now surrouiid it hcur witness. On the north side stands the Bank of Monlr ' al now one of the inosi |)o verful institutions in llie world. The interior, with its huge ((dunnis of s did green granite, is noted for its imposing architectural beauty. |2){| Flankino; it on the east side are the Trust Companies and on the west, the Banque Canadienne Nationale. The square has seen peace and war, prosperity and depression. The Fleur de Lys has given place to the Union Jack. The pageant passes and is gone. French soldier; Iroquois warrior; cardinal; fur-trader; banker and merchant — each has passed on his way and has left his trace on the grey old square of Place d ' Armes.

One airman lost, and he was someone ' s son! We sunk a ship that carried Jap supplies. The Indian news is serious, here they say. Save gas for planes; no car trips, I surmise. Send books to speed our soldiers on their way. The weather forecast says there will be rain, But sunny weather will quite soon be here " Buy Victory Bonds " , and buy and buy again For then our freedom will have novight to fear. This page presents a joke, the next a map And here a page of summer clothes is shown A coat, a dress, a little coloured cap. Then here ' s a poem on the Victory Loan. What ' s on at all the theatres tonight? A comedy on army life abroad — A man reported missing in the fight Is safe at home, the message was a fraud. So now I fold the paper up and sigh How old to-morrow all this news will be ! Not much is gained and yet, I wonder why The paper read, the day ' s begun for me.

We can help to keep the spirit of the home cheerful by obeying our parents without a fuss; by being patient with out younger brothers and sisters, by not being wasteful and by spending our small allowance wisely. Canada has vast forest lands which need protection from forest fires and tree diseases. The Government has made game laws to protect the animals, fish and fowl from being hunted all year round. On our summer holidays we can help guard our national resources from careless destruction. The Government has told us of the sugar and rubber shortage and we can help by eating less candy and taking care of our bicycle tires. School trains our minds and teaches us habits which we will need in the future when we shall be the grown-ups and will have to bear a greater responsibility in standing on guard for Canada. Nancy Cliff, Form IIIa., Fairley House. HAVE WE FAITH? Have we the faith our fathers had Were sacrifices sought in vain? In days of long ago? As many are today. Who fought so bravely for their land, Put forth your strength, O fellowmen! Against the lurking foe. Like those of yesterday! Have we the faith that spurred them on Think back to these great men who died To keep Britannia free? To save a land so fair Make safe our wondrous Union Jack We have not kept the faith they did That stands for liberty? To keep us from despair. Those valiant deeds, so bravely fought In Flanders bright red poppies grow That came through all these years; Between each small white cross That make us stop and wonder at They ' re to remind us of a task So many of our fears. To do, or suffer loss. But now, today take up new faith, Ye services so strong ! None are too small to serve the cause Be conflicl short or long. Er,izABETU Atkinson, Form IIIa..

Veronica Cadbury, Aged 9 years, Lower I. THE STORY OF GYP IN MY home in England, Denise and I have a little dog called Gyp. When we had him he was so small we could put him in a basket. He was very mischievous and used to eat the shoes, climb on the chairs and bite the cushions. When he went into the garden, he ran all over the flower beds and the gardener got very cross. Gyp grew up and became a big shaggy dog. He used to run away from home and sometimes he came back very muddy. Then we had to give him a bath and a good scrub. This he did not like. When we came to Canada we had to give Gyp away, I miss him very much and I hope Gyp is happy in his new home. Shirley Craig, Aged 9 years, Lower I.

Where the stream runs along hy the old wooden mill. The fire burns bright in my house of delight, And casts round the room a halo of light. Outside on a mountain the coyotes bark. As the sound of an owl fades away in the dark. When Sunday arrives I will leave for the train, Wliether sunny, or snowing, or pouring rain. When the train blows the whistle, I sadly set forth, And my house of delight fades away in the North. Joan Macklaier, Form II. O YE WINDS O ye winds that blow all day, O ye winds that sing a lay.

You know very well I ' ve been in this same spot for thousands of years and I shall probably be here for at least another thousand. " " Mount Royal, just imagine being here for another thousand years. I wonder what Montreal will look like then. I expect it will be so different. Of course we may not be here then. We might be shovelled up and taken away in carts. I wonder what we would feel like and Mount Royal, where do you suppose they ' d put us? " " Put us! What on earth are you talking about? " gasped Mount Royal, who had been having forty winks while Westmount was speaking. [35] " You ' ve been sleeping, " accused Westmount. " I have not, " was the mdif nant answer. " You have so. " " I have not. " " Oh, stop it. The two of you are enough to drive me mad. You ' re always quarrelling when I rise every night. Couldn ' t you pick some other time. " " We ' re sorry, Mrs. Moon, " said the repentant mountains. There was a long silence as two mountains watched Mrs. Moon as she slowly rose in the sky. Westmount was the first to hreak the silence. " Mrs. Moon, you must be terribly old. " " Westmount! " gasped Mount Royal, " How could you! " " How could I what? " " How could you be so rude? " " I wasn ' t, I just told Mrs. Moon that she must be awfully old. " " Well, you were very rude and you ought to tell Mrs. Moon that you ' re very, very sorry and that . . . " " Look she ' s behind a cloud, she is so ashamed of you. Go on, tell her. " " Mrs. Moon, I am very, very sorry for what I said about your age . . . " " Don ' t say that again, " interrupted Mount Royal. " Hello, Westmount, hello. Mount Royal. " " Hello Mr. Wind. " " What kind of weather should I bring tomorrow. Mount Royal? " " Sunny, so I shall be able to have a great many people visit me. Skaters, skiers and sliders. It ' s such fun watching them. " What kind of weather do you want, Westmount? " asked Mr. Wind. " Snowy, a regular blizzard. They ' re such fun. " " You ' re jealous because you haven ' t got a rink for people to skate on and your slide isn ' t as nice as mine. " " How do you know your slide is nicer. Mount Royal? " " Well it is, Mr. Wind. " " I ' m not so sure. I ' ve tried both and I think that one is just as nice as the other. " " I ' m so glad you think so, Mr. Wind, " said Westmount, sleepily. " Well good-night, both of you. See you tomorrow. " " Good-nigl.t, Mr. Wind.

Je peux garder tous les restes qu ' on jette d ' habitude, les vieux journaux, bouteilles vides, papier d ' emballage, petits morceaux d ' etoffe et fils de laine. Aussi, je peux tricoter ou coudre pour les diverses organisations de secours. La Croix-Rouge est la mieux connue, et il y en a un tas d ' autres.

[39] CANADIAN RED CROSS HE Canadian Red Cross is one of the National Red Cross Societies and with over -L sixty nations is affiliated with the International Red Cross Committee at Geneva and so is able to extend its services into every quarter of the world and bring care and comfort and supplies to our Canadian forces wherever they may be. The Red Cross Society which, through more than three quarters of a century has always been ready to help distressed humanity in time of catastrophe, flood, fire, famine, and epidemics was really formed to bring nursing and help to the sick and wounded during war. When Florence Nightingale, who had just finished an intensive course of nursing in Germany and France, was asked to take a band of volunteer nurses to the Crimea, she enthusiastically agreed. Her reports later made clear to the whole civilian public of Europe that much more service was required for sick and wounded soldiers at war, and she urged that groups of volunteers should be organized to act as assistants to army doctors. Thus in iier mind was born the idea which afterwards found its fruition in the Red Cross. Henri Duraiil wlio bad been greatly impressed by the reports of Florence Night- ingale bad the opportunity to verify her conclusions regarding the neglect of the wounded Koldiers during llw war iti norlbern Italy 1HS9 and he was determined to [40] devote his whole time and energy to prevent a repetition of such great loss of life; and finally on October the twenty-ninth, eighteen hundred and sixty-three, a trea ty was drawn up at Geneva by the International Congress and the Red Cross was born. The Swiss colours, the white cross on a red background, were reversed to form the Red Cross flag. In 1909 by an act of the Dominion Parliament the Canadian Red Cross was founded. Where war breaks out a nation looks first to its armaments for the destruction of its enemies and next to its Red Cross. In September 1939 when the sad news that England must again engage in war with Germany reached us followed so quickly by the sinking of the S. S. Athenia, the Canadian Red Cross was able to cable twenty-five thousand dollars to England for the use of relief workers who were helping survivors. Hundreds of thousands of " comforts " have been given to members of our Navy, Army, Air Force and Merchant Navy in training or stationed in Canada. In addition to the service in Canada, a monthly grant of $10,000 has been made to the British Navy League and nine other societies in Britain since the beginning of the war to be expended on materials and supplies for the men of the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy. Disaster relief organizations supported by strong committees have been set up on the sea-boards and at other vulnerable points ready to go into action in the event of air raids or other war emergencies. The " Maple Leaf Club " which was opened by the Canadian Red Cross in the Spring of 1940 has proved to be a popular home for members of the Canadian forces while visiting London on leave. Bombed and temporarily put out of operation by enemy action at various times the " Club " has always managed to re-open and carry on its much-appreciated services. Later in the same year the Canadian Red Cross inaugurated a " Blood Donor " Service and thousands of patriotic citizens have made voluntary contributions of their blood. This is shipped to England in the form of a dried blood serum and has proved to be invaluable in saving life. The " number four " Canadian General Hospital was built and fully equipped by the Canadian Red Cross. This hospital has been the centre of the medical profession in England since its opening. In every hospital there is a Canadian Red Cross Visitor who goes around visiting all the wounded Canadian soldiers: giving them papers from home when possible, supplying them with cigarettes and reading material. If the soldiers are too ill to write she will write letters home for them. The Canadian Red Cross Visitor brings many bright hours into the day of a lonely soldier confined to a hospital. [41] Upon request from the British Red (]roRS the (lanarJian hraiic;h Jian ojjened a pack- ing depot in Toronto and Montreal, where tliousands of parcels are packed and shipped daily to British and (]anadian prisoners of war. Every tliree months official next-of-kin, designated by the prisoner, may send an eleven pound parcel, which is shipped at the expense of the Canadian Red Cross. When thinking of the comforts for the men in the Services, the Red Ooss does not neglect the thousands of women and children whose homes have been bombed. Nearly two million complete outfits for children and layettes have been sent to England since the out-break of war. On Christmas morning there were many happy faces when the children opened their parcels from Canada and found that the Red Cross had not for- gotten to send toys and Christmas decorations in each parcel. In the evacuation of Dunkirk, the British Red Cross lost a large part of its supplies. This would have caused great difficulties during the intensive bombing of Britain had i t not been for the Canadian Red Cross supplies. The Canadian Red Cross Corps was formed early in the war to provide a trained and disciplined body of voluntary Red Cross women workers, wearing an identifying uniform, who would be available for Red Cross and other forms of National service. The red cross on a white background has stood for nearly eighty years, bringing comfort, happiness and light to millions, may it always be, " The Light that never fails. " HE Junior Red Cross Conference was held this year on March the fourteenth in the A. Red Cross building on Saint Antoine Street. There were five representatives from Trafalgar who attended the Conference. There were many schools represented, not only from Montreal, but from the districts around Montreal. The honoured guest of the Conference was a girl from Havergal, Toronto, who represented the Ontario Junior Red Cross. The Conference was planned and made possible by our able leader Mrs. Shaw and was a great success. The purpose of this Conference was to spread the Junior Red Cross spirit, and to give the schools a chance to hear what other schools have done towards helping their country through the Junior Red Cross. Before the Conference itself began, we all made a tour of the building and saw the boxes being made and a great many already packed to be shipped overseas. On the top of each box was a slip of juiper telling just what was in the box. We saw a display of knitting and sewing and also how the material is cut for garments, on a large scale. i ' h«!n we were shown a box and its contents which was to be sent to one of our war prisoners in (i( rmany. Marjorie Morgan, Form VIb., Cumming House. THE JUNIOR RED CROSS CONFERENCE [421 To begin the Conference, there was a very interesting talk by the Dean of Women at Macdonalfl College, Miss McCready, who spoke on Nutrition, and the importance of keeping healthy, especially in this time of war. The Conference continued with short talks by representatives from different schools on such subjects as summer gardens, first-aid, a sports program to promote healthy bodies, and publicity. The last is what the Junior Red Cross is, among other things, in great need of. For few people realise the great work that the school children of Canada are doing through the Junior Red Cross. Next on the program came the telling, by a few of the schools, of how they raised money by selling candy and cookies, by organizing a mile of pennies, carol singing, auctions and so on. Nancy Maclure spoke for Trafalgar on the upkeep of the thirty-two war nurseries which the Junior Red Cross has undertaken to support. The representative from Havergal gave a short speech on the Junior Red Cross work in Ontario and several other schools spoke on knitting and sewing. There were a few talks on voluntary summer activities, such as parks and playgrounds and hydro-therapy clinics. There were further talks by different schools on books and handmade games for the troops, the worth of saving used postage stamps and a talk on the importance of salvage. Nancy Maclure made another excellent speech on our Student Council, which consists of the Prefects and the Form Officers who help in organizing School activities. The girls of Trafalgar do some work for the Junior Red Cross, but after seeing what other schools have done, we feel that there might be a still greater effort made. We owe a great deal to Miss Hicks for the grand work she has done in charge of the Junior Red Cross in Trafalgar. Betty Connal, Form VIa., Ross House. [43] FORM VI A MARGARET BURDEN, " M " I937-J942.

Of course this is to be expected when there are fourteen of us, all with our vices. From the time we arrive at school in the morning, until our departure at noon, our mistresses are vainly trying to keep order between lessons. There are some, overflowing with mirth, who contribute a large part to this incessant chatter, and to the noise in general, not mentioning any names of course. Then we have our day-dreamers, who, sitting in the front seats, deceive people by appearing to be listening to explanations, but whose thoughts, in reality, are miles away. We wonder where? We have our president " Runt " Hunter, the belle of Va, who calls out " Miss Mac Gachan, girls " , " Quiet po-lease " , but all in vain. " D " Burden, our vice-President, is a combination of " brains " , and " sports " . (What more?) Harriet Anderson, whose marks are the joy of the mistresses (100 Geometry) is our mission representative. Arguments are very common when the end of the month is drawing near, and Harriet, desperately in need of funds, tries to squeeze a quarter out of girls who insist that they have brought it. Our library representative, Pamela Irvine, blonde and quiet, is the mathematical genius of our class. And so Va is composed of dumb and bright pupils, quiet and noisy ones, but to- gether we all have a grand time, thus showing that variety is the spice of life. FORM V B MISS CAM has been very helpful as a form mistress to Form Vb., and Lois Tyndale and Joan Erzinger have done a creditable job as president and vice-pres ident. The Form has done well in winter sports. Many of our members were on the school ski team, and in particular Joan Staniforth stands out as having captured all the senior honours, and has had her picture in the paper, with the caption of the " young marvel " . In basketball, the class team was runner-up in the inter-form competition, and we have been well represented on the school teams by Margo Thornton, Patsy Scott, Joan Staniforth, Margaret McLean, Verniez Hood. We have two very promising hymn players, Jean McLean and Anne Richardson. Our mission representative, Madeleine Sargent has done very good work. Anne Richard- son is our library representative, and the Form has done a great deal of reading for house points. Many of our members were in the Christmas play, and Lya Popper in particular distinguished herself as an actress. Mary Mitham has made us very proud of her intellectual abilities. A number of girls in the form have promising artistic ability, among whom are Jean McLean, Doraine Thow, Nora Newman and Elizabeth Maxwell. We are very proud that Nora Newman came third in the Victory Loan Essay competition for tlie whole province. The Form, from its own point of view, (we say nothing of the teachers) has had a very good year, and is looking forward to next year with enthusiasm. [50] FORM IV A The scene: IVa. Time: Tuesday morning. The day opens with Mary Finley shakiiifi that small black box known as a mission box, but which strangely enough has no rattle; and Wendy Maclachlan proclaiming that Carol Soden owes the Library ten cents. The " sentry " calls out " Mademoiselle, girls! " And her entrance is greeted by an innocent (?) looking Fourth. Our president Helen Hoult assists in taking roll-call in the middle of which a noise like Superman is heard (pardon us, it is only Helen Fawcett, late as usual). At prayers bad marks are read out ! English begins with Fay Organ ' s speech during which running shoes and shorts go flying aroimd the classroom. The bell rings and the girls go trembling up to the gym for today is the day of the gym competition, in the middle of which Fat Holland gets stuck on the horse and has to be pushed over by gym captain Bev. Stewart. The Form drags into history class where balance benches are mixed up with Lord Strathcona. With the beginning of notes someone who cannot spell or keep up with the class is invited by Mrs. Irwin to sit beside her. The bell ! Another one of Camilla Harvey ' s headings is handed to Barbara Brooks for the " Mag " . The rest of the morning flies and with the last bell everyone tumbles over each other in a mad scramble to get home. One feeble voice is heard saying " Be back by 2:15 sharp for the Basketball game! " At 2:15 the team assembles and Olga Lawes is seen whispering last minute instruc- tions to Peggy Pegram and Doreen Harvey. (P.S. Where ' s Elizabeth Cuttle?) We win with flying colours against IVb., but lose to Vb. A day with the girls of IVa thus closes. FORM IV B No happenings of interest have we, alas! So we ' ll make you acquainted with some of our class. With English Marcia we will start, She tops us all in gym and art. And Violet Cavey, need she be named? ' Course outside of gym we all know why she ' s famed. Our leaders in games who are Barbara and Margot, Look on each other as an " alter ego " Jane loves to act, and she ' s very dramatic. But she prefers roles that are strictly romantic. At Christmas Joyce-Anne for the wilderness left. And now of our genius we ' re sadly bereft. To tell Peggy something, don ' t bother to try, ' Cause for every " wherefore " she has a " why " . Jean proves to be quite as smart as a fox. When it comes to filling the mission box. We think it ' s her maths. Franny Young ought to watch, For she says she ' s half English and three-quarters Scotch. [51] Now and Uien to llio library Belly trailH, So tliat she can relax witJi some fairy tales. ]No doubt our dear form-males not mentioned in ibis, Are walking about in rapturous bliss.

We have found our feet again and elected new officers to take the place of the old ones who have become members of IIIa. Gwen Williams is our form president, the same as last year, but we have a new, but capable vice-president, who is Marylyn Rutley. This year we have put into the mission collection an average of about two dollars a month, with the aid of our form mistress, Mademoiselle Dillon, and a great deal of persuasion on the part of Joyce McLean, our mission repre- sentative. We have tried hard with our games this year, and although defeated by IIIa in the form basketball match, we have improved. Our games lieutenant is Joan Thackray and the games Captain is Marylyn Rutley. We hope to do well in the gymnastic com- petition under the guidance of Gwen Williams, our gym captain. The gym lieutenant is Mary Munro. Also we have taken out a number of books from the library; our library representative is Joan Thackray. Our magazine representative is Mary Munroe. FORM UPPER II IN OUR Form there are twenty-four girls, four of whom come from England. We are a jolly crowd, but usually make too much noise. Our classroom is situated at the top of the school and it is airy and bright. We have a piano, a Form library and a wash hand basin so we are well equipped. We grumble at the stairs we have to climb each day, but it is worth it as we have the laboratory, gymnasium and studio all next to us. This year has been a very busy one as in this Form we all become members of the School Houses. We have all been trying hard to gain points so that our own House will win the shield at the end of the year. We knit socks and scarves for the Red Cross. We also read specially chosen books in our spare time and in our Form alone twenty-five book tests have been taken by different girls. They are tested on these and gain six points on each book for their House. The girls who come out with high marks at the end of the term also gain points. We are the only Form in the School to have a Form period. In it we are given poems for our Anthologies. We get pieces of work back and are told about ur week-end essays. The Form is divided into four companies and we elect heads who keep an account of our marks. If any girl gets an " A " she gains three points and if she does anything naughty she loses five or ten points. In the Form period we give in our company marks. We are very fond of gym and games and always look forward to these lessons. In the Gym Demonstration we did country dancing. At games we play basketball in the winter and different team games in the summer. Last term six girls from our Form were chosen to play for the school against The Study. We went down to the Y.W.C.A. for the match, but the Study was victorious. Congratulations to The Study. We are fortunate to have " B.J. " for our Form mistress, as she is always interested in all our activities and helps us to get along. We shall all be sorry when our year with her is over. [53] ou BARCLAY HOUSE " Tene Bene et Aha Pete BARCLAY HOUSE has done a good deal of hard work this year, and keeping up the tradition of the house, we again won the spelling hee in which Barclay has come first for several years. A large amount of knitting for the Red Cross has heen handed in by the House, especially by the new members in Upper Second; let us hope they keep up the good work ! Barclay has become more sports-minded this year, and we have several representa- tives on the first and second basketball teams. Although we lost the inter-house basketball match to Ross House, we hope sincerely to do better on Sports Day. The heads of the House, Jane Edwards and Margery Campbell were received with full co-operation from Mrs. Leonard, and in this section we wish to thank her for helping us, and so making it possible for us to hold the lead in the second term. We were not as successful as we hoped to be in the Music Competition, but we congratulate our small group of eight for their excellent effort, and also Joyce McLean who conducted the part songs and played a violin solo. For the first time, Sub-Prefects have chosen from the Fifth Form this summer term, and we were lucky enough to have a member representing our House ; Harriet Anderson — congratulations, Harriet, and we wish you success next year. Before leaving we wish Barclay House all sorts of luck, and for her future leaders, continued co-operation. Jane Edwards, Makgery Campbell, Heads of the House. GUMMING HOUSE " Facta l on Verba ' N()TWrrHS ' J ' AM)l!NG the fact that this school year was not as successful for (!!uniniing House as tliose in the past, we thank all those who helped to make it so interesting and enjoyable. A large majority of the girls this year came from the yf)unger forms. We hope that the experience they have gained this year will be helpful to llicni in ihc future. (3ur House was represented on the first Baskelhali Team by Margaret Burden, (iaplain, and Dorolhy Rurden, and on ihe second team by Mildred Bradsher. These girls along with other members of the House contributed to victory in the Inter-House matches, after defeating Barclay and Ross. Many of our points this year were gained by knitting for the Red Cross, the General Knowledge Test and good pieces of school work. Once again this year, we had the Inter-House Music Competition. It was decided that only the girls from Upper II and Form III should participate. The selecting and practising of the songs were left entirely up to the House. The entire School looked forward with great enthusiasm to hear the final results. Fairley House came out on top, with Ross second and Barclay and ourselves following up. We are very grateful to Miss Blanchard for giving up so much of her valuable time to judge this competition. The Track Meet this year is to be held on May 18. We are all looking forward to a pleasant afternoon at Molson ' s Stadium and in the meantime we will be practising hard so that we may do our best when the time comes. We would like to thank Miss Cam, our House mistress, for her co-operation and all the time and thought she has spent on the welfare of the House. We also thank the girls for all they have done and we hope that they will continue to live up to their motto " Facta Non Verba " . AIRLEY HOUSE girls have enjoyed working again together in an effort this year. JL to bring the House into top rank. We ourselves know that we have the material in the House to succeed, and at the end of the Christmas term, our opponents were more conscious pf the fact. On this occasion we held second place, lacking thirteen points to equal the winner. At the close of the first term Fairley lost some very valuable members, namely, Hermione Firth, who returned to England, Joyce Anne Rankin, who left for Toronto and Joan Burt, who went to live in a warmer climate. These girls respectively made splendid contributions during the first term. We wish them all success in their work and we regret that they are no longer with us. Our girls have represented the House this year in all school activities. Some have excelled in scholastics, some in gymnastics, and others in both. Nancy Maclure, Margot Thornton and Joan Little were on a first basketball team and Hermione Firth, while she was with us, was on the second team. All girls have been kept busy with sewing and knitting, or have done a considerable amount of profitable reading. Credit is due to Helen Ayer, Gwen Williams, Lois Tyndale, Edith Mather and Janet Dixon for the work they have done for the House. Special mention must be made of Marcia Beeman, Shirley Davis, Claire Johnson, Fay Organ and Jean McLean, who have improved greatly since the beginning of this year. Margaret Burden, Barbara Grindley. Heads of Cumming House. [55] The girls who have more tlum the iiHiial amount of difrniihy in keepinfi out of harm ' s way, have made a special effort to avoid l)ad marks and in many eases have succeeded. Edith Mather came third in the city for her essay on " The Masterpieceg in t he Art Gallery " . Congratulations, Edith ! This year Fairley came second in the spelling hee and as we see the girls ' individual marks in the spelling test, we know that Fairley has many excellent spellers. As you all remember Fairley came first in the Music Competition, last year. This year the junior girls of the Houses took part in the competition, and the seniors were eagerly looking forward to these juniors to keep up Fairley ' s reputation; we were not disappointed, for Fairley again came first ! Credit is due to Elizabeth Atkinson, Barbara Brown, Gwen Williams, and Helen Ayer in this competition. We Fairley girls have a very important motto to uphold, " Service Before Self " . Our country demands it and we, schoolgirls of Fairley House, can show that we understand the full significance of our motto. Our goal is to bring out the best we have in our House and always to strive for the shield. The 1941-42 heads take this opportunity to thank the girls for their earnest co-operation and enthusiasm and above all we wish to thank Miss Bryan, our house- mistress for all the time and thought she has given us. We wish the House success in all her undertakings during the coming year, and we wish good luck to those who must carry on. Nancy Maclure, Joan Little, Heads of Fairley House. ROSS HOUSE Suaviter in more, Fortiter in re " ROSS HOUSE has been living up to its high standard of work and good sportsman- ship during this last year. We were pleased to greet new girls at the beginning of the year who have done their full share in helping to obtain points for their House. While unfortunately Ross House this year is not a leader in athletics in the school, although we did take second place in House Basketball, it has achieved distinction in the more academic subjects, the Spelling Bee and General Knowledge Test. To its credit and to the delight of the other girls Nora Newman was placed third in the Provincial Essay (jontest on Canada ' s Victory Loan and Charlotte Scrimger came second in the Essay (]om|)elition on Masterpieces of Art, and for these successes they have our heartiest congratulations. Ross House girls have actively supported the war effort by the regular purchase of saving stamps and in knitting and sewing numerous articles for members of the armed forces and ihe H(;d Cross, and it is hoped this will be continued as needs arise. A great deal of reading has been done by the girls and I hey find it an enjoyable way of gaining |)oirilH. Mary Grimley was our pianist in tlie Music Competition anrl with the girls of Upper 11 and III forms they proved themselves compete nt in this work. Special mention is due to Denise Craig, Camilla Harvey, Mary Mitham, Carol Babington and Rae Hunter for having contributed the greatest number of points. We were pleased to have the honour of leading Ross House and we owe many thanks to Miss Bedford-Jones, who has given up her time to help us through the past year. We hope that in the coming year all the girls will do their best to win the coveted shield. Good luck, Ross, and live up to your motto " Gracious in manner, strong in action " . Betty Connal, Alice Davis, Heads of the House. Editor ' s Note. Throughout the year the girls have bought many War Savings Stamps through the Houses. In all six hundred and eighty-two stamps were sold, and Ross House lead with two hundred and eighty stamps. THE MUSIC COMPETITION To THE Lower Middle School, credit is due for the fine competition which they organized themselves and carried through so successfully. It was plain to see that the girls had a good deal of fun developing their ideas. Each House found an individual outlet for their particular talent. It would be difficult to say whether the audience or the competitors received more pleasure on the day of the competition itself. Mary Grimley, winner of the piano solo, began the morning ' s entertainment, setting a high standard for the following performers. The Houses in turn sang test pieces, each conducted by one of their group. Some of the representative choirs interpreted their songs better than others, but each gave a creditable performance. The third part of the programme offered more variety. Gumming House gave an amusing little skit from " The Pirates of Penzance " , and Ross House cleverly handled an extract from " H.M.S. Pinafore " , while Fairley managed with a good deal of skill to give us the " Life of Mozart " with a minimum amount of detail. Barclay, on the other hand, chose to introduce us to a talented young violonist, Joyce McLean, who certainly justified their decision. We were very fortunate in having a most understanding adjudicator in Miss Blanchard, one of Montreal ' s best musicians. By her helpful criticism, the girls learned of their mistakes and received praise for their achievements. The decision met with great acclamation when Miss Blanchard gave Gumming and Barclay a C. ranking, Ross a B. and Fairley led the group with an A. The senior girls and the School at large are indebted to the Lower Middle School for a most enjoyable programme. Nancy Maclure, Form VIa., Fairley House. [57] THE HALLOWE ' EN PARTY ON FRIDAY evening the tliirly-first of October, MiH8 Hicks and the members of Six B held their annual Hallowe ' en Party in tlie assenihly hall. The Hall was most festive with its gay orange and black streamers and black cats, while witches and skeletons, symbolic of Hallowe ' en, added to the air of mystery. The platform was decorated with sinister looking lighted pumpkins. The Mistresses, the Sixth Forms, Form V and the boarders, who were the guests of the evening, arrived about eight o ' clock, and the party began with the singing of " O Canada " , after which dancing was the order of the day. Being wartime, the girls of Six A had decided that they would dress as ghosts, so as to save expense. We were completely covered with white sheets and I must confess that it was very stuffy, and uncomforatble. Every once in a while one or other of the members of the Form would make a dash for the privacy of our own Form room to secure the sheets and stop them froming apart. When the party had begun, suddenly all the lights went out, and the ghosts ran in howling and screaming. When the party was well underway, balloons were dropped from the balcony and for about five minutes it was like a cannonade, as one balloon after another burst with a terrific bang. Then came the Grand March and the judging of the costumes. The Staff had a very difficult task to select the winners, for there were so many different types of costumes, some original, some humorous and some beautiful. The characters represented were extremely varied too. Hitler, being guillotined, a little negro couple, a Highlander, a pilot, nurses and numerous others. However, it was finally decided that Gwen Williams had the most beautiful costume and that Mary Munroe, who came as a Chinese girl and who acted her part extremely well, had the most original one. Miss Rushton won the prize awarded to the Staff. She wore an old-fashioned costume of beautiful black lace. After a soap advertising game, supper was served at attractively decorated tables round the room. The party ended with the singing of the National Anthem, and another successful Trafalgar Hallowe ' en Party came to a close. „ rr ' Dorothy Turville, Cumming House. THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT FOR several years Miss Strawbridge has conducted a carol singing in which the whole school has taken part. This year she and Miss MacGachan put on a very successful pageant in which several girls took part. Barbara Grindley and Nancy Maclure as Time and Eternity were especially good. There were several scenes from the Christmas Story, the revelation to Mary, the arrival at the inn, the coming of the Wise Men and the shepherds, and the presentation of the gifts. The school and visitors joined in the singing of the beautiful old carols and we all felt that Xmas for us had really begim. Margery Campbell, Barclay House. [58] MISSION MONEY TOWARD the end of the month scenes like this could often be witnessed inside the walls of Trafalgar. A girl flies into a Form room and the clusters of girls break-up looking expectantly at her extra-excited countenance. " The Mission Money has to be in by tomorrow ! " she cries, with pointed looks at — er — various people. Dead silence, then a low groan and sudden stampede from the Form room — everyone has unaccount- ably found something of extraordinary importance that has to be done. As I write this I have a feeling that tomorrow we will hear the " Mission-money- call " only there will be no general stampede, for the girls are becoming more and more conscious as the days go by of the im[)ortance of donating money to our Fund, and they are giving willingly and generously. The Trafalgar Cot is the most important thing which is financed by the school with money from the Fund. When this is accounted for, donations are given to the Red Cross and Federated Charities — whose spendid work I need not mention in detail. Everyone knows what the Red Cross is doing. The wounded are cared-for, a bombed-out baby is clothed and sheltered and prisoners of war are aided. We of Trafalgar feel that we are taking an active part in this great service by donating money. Each month the Mission Money is taken to assembly by the Representatives (who, incidently, are elected by the girls themselves) and placed on a copper plate presented by the Rev. Mr. McLean. It is then counted and the total announced in the next day ' s assembly. DoREEN Harvey, Form IVa, Ross House.

[60] THE WAR has definitely affected our Gviides by taking from us Miss Betty Miner who has done splendid work with the 14th Company for many years. She is now on Active Service overseas, with her sister Nora (the former Brown Owl) in England, where we wish them the best of luck. Our Trafalgar guides now nvimber twenty-one girls. There are four Patrols — the Baltimore Orioles, Scarlet Tanagers, Gold Feather and Kingfishers. The new girls who joined the Company in the fall were distributed among the four patrols, and have been very conscientious in working at their various tests. It is unfortunate that the Lieutenant, Miss Marjorie Robinson, was with us for such a short time. She left Montreal to join the Air Force. She is now stationed at Manning Pool in Toronto, and is most enthusiastic about the life and work there. We all wish her the best of luck. I want to say how grateful I am to Betty Connal, who helped me " find my feet " in working with the Company, and who is now taking Miss Robinson ' s place. As their war work the guides are making games and black cats to send to the bombed-out children in England. This work is done in Company Meetings and is a popular part of the programme. A number of girls are taking several badges, and Miss Robinson coached a large class in St. John ' s Ambulance work, a badge which was passed with honours. The year has been a very happy one, and I hope there will be many many more to come. There are so many things to say about what we have done, but now I will let patrols speak for themselves. [61] BALTIMORE ORIOLES WE WERE very sorry to lose Betty (xninal at tlie hef inning of the year, who became acting lieutenant of the ( onifjany. Tlie patrol now has Joan Hayer, patrol leader, Elizabeth Scrimger, second, and Jan Henry, Marleigh Paton and Marie Strathy. Marleigh is an English guide who passed quite a few tests in England, but she had to try them again because she did not have a transfer. She and Jan are trying for their second class. Elizabeth has five badges, and Joan nine, but they are both going to try for more this term. Joan is going to try for her first class. We were leading in marks at the end of the second term, and we hope the (Jrioles will continue their good work next year and win the third term this year. Joan Bayer, Patrol Leader, SCARLET TANAGER PATROL THE Scarlet Tanager patrol started the year with six girls, but now has only five. The patrol is made up of Barbara Little, Elizabeth Brown, Marjorie Cottingham, Barbara Watson as patrol second and myself as patrol leader. During the year we all worked very hard to bring up the standard of the patrol. Barbara Watson passed her Second Class and Barbara Little passed her Tenderfoot test, and we hope soon to have the others pass their tests too. We gained one cook ' s badge, one child nurse, one toymaker, and two of us went in for St. John ' s Ambulance, these results are not yet announced. As our contribution to the war effort, we have been making toy cats out of old black stockings and will turn them over to refugee children. All year the attendance has been quite good and I hope the patrol will continue the good work in the future years. Sheila Sinnamon, Patrol Leader. THE GOLDFINCH PATROL THE Goldfinch Patrol has five members, Nora Corley being the only new recruit. Joyce McLean is the second, and she and Jean Holmes have just recently passed their second class, and are engaged in winning badges. Our patrol is making paper dolls, for the children in the hospitals and nurseries in England to play with, as our part of the Red Cross work. Joan Thackray, Patrol Leader. KINGFISHER PATROL THIS year the Kingfisher patrol have had a good time all working together. We took our Hostess Badge in February and passed it after a great deal of hard work. There are the following members in the pack, Denise Craig, Shirley Dunlop, Dorothy Marquis, Daphne Andrews, Rosamond Greene and myself, Elizabeth Brow. We are at [62] present doing Red Cross work for Britain. We have three enthusiastic Brownies who are working very well for the Company and they are passing their second class with great speed. We are very indebted to our Captain Miss Cronyn who has helped us all a great deal and to Betty Connal who has done a great deal of hard work with us. We have worked hard at all we have undertaken, but we still all hope to do better. Elizabeth Brow, Patrol Leader. WITH the departure in October, 1941 of Brown Owl, as Ambulance Driver on Active Service in England, the Brownies of the 14th Pack, Trafalgar School, lost an enthusiastic and devoted leader, but showed their spirit of determination to carry on in her absence. While searching for a new Brown Owl, meetings were held in the Gym by the Guide Captain and Pack Leader of the 14th Company. Eventually the present acting Brown Owl took over in January with some trepidation, as a complete stranger in this entrancing new world of Brownie Magic. The Pack Leader volunteered to act as Tawny Owl and proved to have an unlimited supply of ideas for games, always smiling, always energetic — the sort of Tawny a Brown Owl might dream of finding. By kindly accepting our invitation to enrol the first Tawns as true Brownies, Brown Owl of the Dominion-Douglas Pack provided inspiration in the mysteries of the enrol- ment ceremony (or " unrolment " to quote one small Tawn.) It was discovered that the Pack had a reserve fund in hand of five dollars — a small fortune in Brownies ' eyes — and after a solemn Pow Wow on the subject, it was decided to donate this fund to help support a war baby in England, adopted by the Eliot Edwards School under the Foster Parents Plan for war children. He is Brian Wardell, now aged two months, and is being cared for at the Hampstead Nursery, supervised by Anna Freud. A Trust Fund of fifteen dollars monthly is being raised by the School to support this baby and the Brownies were glad to join in a good turn to help a child in war torn England. Now that warm sunny days are here the Brownies look forward to rambles on the [63] mountain, soarcliinfi; for early Hprinff wiUl-flowrrK, Irarninf to rffofirii .f hirdn an l tfinir son(f8, new {panics out of doofH l{r »wni ? wayH continue to unfold more an i mf»re of interest as the Pack co-operates in work and play.

The basketball matches for the private schools ' Basketball Cup, proved very exciting this year, ending in a play-off between Traf, and The Study. After a thrilling game, The Study won by a narrow margin of one point, thus winning for them the senior trophy. The Study also won the second team series. This year for the first time, Traf had a Junior Team, twelve years and under, who played a match against a coi-responding team from The Study. After a good game, The Study proved themselves the stronger. Congratulations to The Study! The inter-form basketball matches have been held and VIa was victorious, after a hard struggle with Vb. As a result of the House matches. Gumming House was victorious while Ross came second. The Ski-meet took place early in March and The Study won the Molson ' s Shield, although Joan Staniforth captured both the senior honovirs in downhill and slalom. Tennis matches were played at the end of last year, against Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School and Traf was victorious in both teams. The match against the Staff was played last June, and the Staff proved the stronger team. [69] At the be{ inni of this present scliool year, TraC played The Study and was victorious. Sports ' Day is ajrain drawing near. This year a rate of ten cents per person is being charged, and the proceeds are to go to the Red Cross. Last year, two cents a race, was charged, and as a result we sent thirty-two dollars to the Red (]ross, and we hope to do the same this year. We wish everyone the best of luck in this happy event. SKI MEET 1942 HIS year the Interscholastic Ski Meet was held on February 28th. There was an exceptionally large entry and at least six schools took part. We caught the nine o ' clock train from Tunnel Station and, with growing fears, made our way to St. Sauveur. The day was a glorious one, and as we skied over to the Penguin Ski Club, many girls discarded warm sweaters. We went to the slalom hill, where our numbers were given vis. As we approached the hill we could see the pairs of red and yellow flags waving in what looked like a complicated design. The Juniors, having got their numbers made their way to the downhill, which was held on the Molson Run. The Seniors climbed up the slalom hill examining the course very carefully and getting all the advice that they possibly could from equally worried contestants. Soon the event started and it proved an exciting, as well as an enjoyable one. Then we went to the downhill while the Juniors tried their luck at the slalom. By this time the sun was blazing down upon all the competitors and climbing the Molson Trail was " hot work " . Each corner was examined and many of the girls began to doubt their downhill ability. At last we came to the top of the trail and we all sat down in the snow to cool off . Some rubbed paraffin on their skis as the snow was terribly wet, while others, who did not bother much about waxing, discovered their mistake before the end of the run. The downhill started and before you knew it, you were to run next. The starter ' s voice boomed out . . . ten seconds ...5...4...3...2...1.. : off and [71] you jxdcd carcrully aroiitid llic firKi turn. (»iiiiiiiifi coiiUdcinc yoi) fl(;w alori} at a }rn;at rate until alas! for no a|)[)ar( ' n( rcaKon you look a l)carj ;r into a Kn )wbank. You hi-.camc frantic, fjot up quicikly and tried to make up for lost time, only sueeeedinfr in losinfr more precious seconds. Soon you crossed between the finish flags and sat down to find out liow other competitors had fared. We made our way back to the Penguins and had a grand lunch. Later on in tlie afternoon the results were given out. Joan Staniforth, second runner down the course, swung easily down t rough tFie flags on the slalom hill, to set up a first of 28.4 seconds. .Joan finished a full three seconds ahead of her nearest rival. In the Junior .Slalom, Betty Sutherland slalomed her way to victory in 48.4 seconds. Joan Macklaier placed second being seven seconds behind Betty. In the downhill " Stanny " again showed her supremacy as a skier by taking first place in 1:12.4. She was closely tagged by Joan Barclay of Misses Edgar ' s and Cramp ' s School who took 1:13. In the Junior Downhill Betty and Joan again captured first and second places far ahead of their rivals. Trafalgar basked in the individual glory of Joan Staniforth and Betty Sutherland but had to bow to the Study in the quest for the team championship. The .Study scored 9:16.5 to retain the Molson Shield. " Traf " was second with 9:28.3 and Weston finished third. In the Junior Team standings we also came second, eight seconds behind the leader. Misses Edgar ' s and Cramp ' s Schoql. Hospitality at the Penguins left nothing to be desired and all competitors returned home leaving the message that they would be back next year for another try. Dorothy Burden, Form Va, Cumming House. THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION THIS year the Gym " Dem " was held on Thursday afternoon, March 12th, and on Friday evening March 13th. This is one of the important events of the school year, and was very successful due to Miss Box ' s tireless efforts. The Form items were very good this year. No soldiers could have marched better than the Fourth Forms. The skipping of the Thirds and the exercises of the Fifths were excellently performed. The Folk Dancing of the Upper-Seconds was very interesting. The Sixth Form cymbal drill was very effective, and was greatly enjoyed by the audience. The special items were also of interest. The vaulting class performed their various vaults over the horse while the audience was greatly delighted. The rope-climbing by selected individuals was faultlessly performed. At the end of the performance Dr. Donald commended the girls ' work, and the high standard which they had attained in a programme, which in his opinion, varied amazingly with the one put on last year. Mrs. Donald then presented the " G " and " Star " badges, to pupils who had attained the necessary higli slandard in gymnastics and games. ' i ' he girls ihen presenled Miss Box with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, in appreciation of her s|)lendi(l work. IVliss Strawhridge, the [)ianist of the evening also r(!eeive(l some flowers. " Ciod Save tlu; King " was lIuMi sung and another successful " Dem " was over. [72] PRESIDENT ' S REPORT 1941-42 I have the honour to submit the fifth annual report of the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association. There were held, during the year, one general meeting, seven executive meetings, and this our annual meeting. The general meeting was held early in October, in the School Gymnasium. It was a luncheon meeting, and I think was thoroughly enjoyed by all who were able to attend. Mrs. Gate, convenor of the Canteen of the Red Triangle Hut on Philips Square, gave a very interesting and amusing talk on canteen work. At this meeting, the various com- mittees were appointed. Mrs. Tilden agreed to act as convenor of the membership committee for another year and she and her committee have worked hard, and deserve our very great thanks. Miss Alice Johannsen announced at this meeting that the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Scholarship was won by Elizabeth Bennet, and that Elizabeth was enrolled in Form 3. Miss Johannsen agreed to be convenor of the scholarship committee for another year, and I think we all know how fortunate we have been in having her services for this important work. For tlie past two summers, the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association has supplied volunteer workers at the Red Triangle Hut on Pliilips Square, on Sundays from nine until seven. Last September, we were asked to continue this work during the winter as well, and also to [)rovi le our own ca{ tains. It was announced at the general meeting, that the asBociation had agreed to do this work, and lliat your executive had appointed [74] a committee under Miss Mary Stuart. Tlie canteen work lias proved very popular, especially amon i the younger members, and I would like to congratulate them on the good job they have done. In January, the resignation of Mrs. Fraser Cameron, the second vice-president, was accepted with regret, and the executive appointed Mrs. F. G. Ferrabee to take her place. In March, it was decided to dispense with a mid-winter meeting, such as has been held the last few years, and instead to send out a letter, telling of the activities of the association. It was felt by your executive, that a letter would reach more members than might be expected to attend a meeting. We trust that this venture met with your approval. As has become customary, a small part of the school magazine will be devoted to the " Old Girls " , and Mrs. Emory is acting as our editor. Copies of the magazine will be sent to each member in June. This year we have 156 paid up members. I regret to say, that to keep ourselves financially solvent, 156 members is not enough, and that we ended the year $91 in the red. $180, representing one dollar per member for last year, was paid to the Scholarship Fund, and also $50 for the fees for the scholarship girl. This left us, out of current income, only $78 for general expenses, which was insufficient. Of course, when the scholarship fund is large enough to produce an income of $50 a year with which to pay the scholarship fees, we will be relieved of this item. Your executive has felt that war- time is not an auspicious time to appeal for funds for a scholarship, and if we can build up our membership, this will not be necessary. Therefore, I appeal to you to pay your membership fees, and to urge your friends to do likewise. I want to thank you very much for the honour you have done me, in entrusting the affairs of our association to me for the past year. I have enjoyed my term of office, and hope that the results meet with your approval. I wish to express my thanks to Miss Foster, Miss Bryan, and other members of the staff, for the kindly assistance they have shown us during the year. I also wish to thank the members of the committees, and the members of the executive, for their hard work, and loyal cooperation. May the Old Girls ' Association continue to grow ever stronger, and more useful. Respectfully submitted. Glen C. Tuciceu.

Any- way, if you can ' t l)e Strong, l)e Silent. Silence is Khscntial — especially on the telephone. The Sixth (loliinin — which is Patriotic hut Thougiitless — gallops to the telephone during a lilackout and i rays, " Is it dark enough for you, Mary ; " ' When the telephone lines are jainnied with important calls like these, frivolous ruessagi s from the Air Haiti Wardens and Police and I ' ire Depart- ments arc likely to he delay ' d. The Sixth Column loves to use the telephone in the busiest hours — froni 10 a.m. to 12 noon, from two to four in the afternoon, and from seven to eight in the evening. It loves to monopolize the long distance circuits for long conversations in this vein: " You gotta voice like Dinah Shore, Mary. " — " Aw, quit the kidding! " " No, I mean it . . . " — " Oh. Bill! You say the sweetest things! " The Sixth (lolumn cuts off its service liy leaving the telephone off the hook.
