ONCE again, as the snow leaves the ground, and a new season is ushered in with a waking beauty untouched by the dominance of war, our thoughts turn to the events of the past months. As it has been a triumphant and encouraging year for our allies, so has it been a happy and successful one at " Traf " . At the beginning of the school term we learned with regret of the loss of three very popular members of our staff, Miss Hicks, Mrs. Haines, and Mademoiselle Dillon. On the other hand, however, we were most happy to welcome into the school several new staff members, Mademoiselle Royer, Mrs. Lamb, Miss Young and Mrs. MacArthur. We are extremely grateful to Miss Johannsen, Miss Stevens, Miss Zinck and Miss Harder, who have given their valuable time to the teaching of our Biology classes. This year, as well as our frequent and enjoyable visits from Dr. Donald and Archdeacon Gower-Rees, we were most fortunate in having Bishop Ragg, Mrs. Fleming and Miss Hasell speak to us. We were very pleased to have Miss Brown, a former member of our Staff with us on Trafalgar Day. She told us much of interest about the history of the school and very kindly presented the library with a very handsomely bound copy of the 1937 " Trafalgar Echoes " , in which appeared the only complete printed history of the school written by Miss Brown herself. This was indeed a delightful gift and a very valuable one. The Houses have been unusually active in the past year. Besides the individual work done by the different members, the Dramatic Competition and the Spelling Match, won by Ross and Barclay respectively, have provided excellent opportunities for the gaining of House points. The Ping-Pong Competition, the Track Meet and the Inter- House Basketball Matches are yet to be held, and with the completion of these events comes the final decision in the presentation of the Inter-House Shield, to which we are all looking forward with much pleasure. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 13 In spite of the fine work done l y the school ' s various teams, " lra( " . wot not particularly outstanding in the field of sport, but our congratulations go to Joan Macklaicr who won both junior races at tin; Ski-Meet in St. Sauveur. The Gymna-ti Demonstration, due to the expert instruction and tireless efforts of Miss Box, v ;j- i great success. Our annual Christmas carol singing, ably conducted by Miss Strawbridge and Mr. Chadwick, was made very colourful by the presence of a most effective winter scene backdrop, painted by the extra art class under the admirable supervision of Miss Jaques. The girls looked extremely attractive in their white dresses, and seemed to enjo themselves throughout the performance. It is with great appreciation that the members of the Sixth Form express their gratitude to the Old Girls for the dance given them in January. This was the second such event held in the school and was most successful. To various of our Old Girls, we wish to tender hearty congratulations. Mary Mitham, Harriet Anderson, and Pamela Irwin won first, second, and third places in the McGill Matriculation examinations for Quebec schools last year, and are continuing their excellent work at McGill. We speak with pride, too, of th e Wurlele twins and Margaret and Dorothy Burden, who were among those chosen to represent Canada in the women ' s skiing events at Lake Placid. The outstanding efforts of all these girls, form a shining example to their successors. In conclusion, we wish to express hearty thanks to Miss Bedford-Jones and Miss MacGachen, whose long hours of work have been responsible for the publication of this magazine. Indeed, speaking for those of us who are leaving the school, our gratitude to all our teachers for their help and understanding throughout this year, is boundless. We go forth from the school comforted, recalling Kipling ' s words, " And their work continueth, Broad and deep continueth, Great beyond their knowing. " MAGAZINE STAFF Honorary Adviser .........

Sons of our land, whose blood the poppies dyed, Who answered to that other battle cry. Can they forgive us, when they gave their lives To make the world a safe and better place? With all the world in this chaotic state Would we be glad to meet them face to face? " A war to end all wars, " was what they said, And marched away to fight, their heads held high. " A war to end all wars, " and mockery laughs, For now it is their sons who fight and die! The Marne, Ypres, Verdun, " They shall not pass, " And gallant blood watered the fair green fields. It sank below the soil, and ' tis not strange That scarlet are the poppies Flanders yields. Today are newer crosses, newer graves, Yet with each man who fought in years long past We will " keep faith " ; and raise our prayer that soon They ' ll sleep in peace and quietude at last. Marylyn Rutley, Form Vb. Barclay House. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 15 SOME PASSING THOUGHTS UPON TRAFALGAR DAY IN the month of Novemher, 1805, England firKt heard of the victory won bv Nelson against the French off ' Cape Trafalgar. King George HI, old, sick, and luibeloved of his subjects, heard it; and the Prince Regent, middle-aged, and tin- leader of fashion- able London society, heard it. William Pitt, Prime Minister of England, heard it, and no doubt he rejoiced; Napoleon likewise heard it, and there is a great deal of doubt as to whether he rejoiced. Percy Bysshe Shelley, who was a sensitive, peculiar boy of thirteen, and suffering at school because of it, heard the news; and George Gordon, Lord Byron, spending quantities of money on himself at Cambridge, and neglecting the poor Muses altogether, heard it. All the poets, industriously composing their verses, up in the Lake District of Cumberland heard it; and so did the members of the various Methodist societies all over England, and they probably thanked God that England had been granted such a great victory. And lastly, all the elegant ladies, and the poor but ever genteel ladies, and the farmers ' wives, and all the other women of England heard it; as did their husbands — the lords of England, the farmers, and especially the new class of wealthy manufacturers, who had recently discovered to their delight that " women and children could work twenty-four hours a day, without many of them dying, or becoming excessively deformed " . To-day all the men and women of England who rejoiced on that day, one hundred and thirty-eight years ago, are dead and forgotten; except for the few that in some way or another caught the fancy of the world and will never be forgotten. Shelley and Byron are still remembered, as well as all the Lake poets, and Methodism we still have with us. George III and the Prince Regent are still remembered, although not perhaps particularly revered. William Pitt is remembered as being one of our greatest Prime Ministers. And the battle of Trafalgar, as well as he who fought it are remembered, and will be remembered, as long as England remains true to what is glorious and honourable and good in the great saga of her past history, and does not forget these things in the fateful hours of the time that is now, and the time that shall be then. There is nothing ha lf so beneficial to a country as a long and excellent tradition, provided that it is not carried to the excess of ancestor worship. It is a truly fine thing to be able to look back with a feeling of almost personal pride to a great victory like that of Trafalgar, and to others like Blenheim and Waterloo; but what is not truly fine is to allow one ' s thoughts to remain there. It is the present that is important; the battles we fight and win to-day form the glorious tradition of to-morrow, and we must see that it is glorious; we must look to it that Trafalgar is equalled, even bettered in our own day, so that the people of a century hence will look back with pride, and not with shame at the people of to-day. A day set aside for thinking on these things is very valuable. It makes people proud and patriotic, and a nation composed of such men and women can never be mastered, " f lag-waving " is an empty useless thing, which does not inspire people to a love of country, but only leads ihem lo believe that patriotism is a silly thing, indulged in by If. tkai al ;ai echoes 1944 silly people. And so no doubt it is, but like anything else that " is not done " , flag- waving can be very pleasant once in a while, and therefore I always reserve a brief moment on Trafalgar Day for becoming very swollen-headed and self-important over the fact that I am a Canadian and thus a member of the British Empire. And so I always think of Trafalgar Day as being divided (like all Gaul) into three parts. Firstly, I wonder what the people of that day said when they heard of the victory; did they say the same sort of thing that we say to-day? I can imagine what the Herries family thought of it; it was for them a battle fought and won by Herries alone, against everything that was not English and Herries. But what did gentle Miss Matty say? And what gem of wisdom dropped from Miss Pole ' s lips upon hearing the news? I often wish that it were possible to transport one ' s self into the past for short periods at a time, to see what it was all really like, and one of the periods I should most like to inves- tigate, personally, was the time when Nelson fought and won the battle of Trafalgar. And then I think of the present — how we still celebrate the victory of observing Trafalgar Day every year; and in particular how British sea men still mourn Nelson ' s death by wearing their black scarves all the time. These thoughts generally lead up to a burst of patriotism, and a determination to " this day do m y duty " , and every day as well. These high resolves soon pass away, but I always feel better for having thought of them at all. And so Trafalgar Day, while fulfilling its purpose of keeping fresh in our minds the victory off Cape Trafalgar, and the memory of Nelson, who gave his life that day, also inspires us with the decision to maintain and increase the glory which he won for England. Joan Thackray, Form Vb., Ross House. WILL-O ' -THE WISP Will-o ' -the wisp Come out of the fen, And tease no more Bewildered men.

TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 17 THEM GREMLINS " Fairies have gone out of fashion. It ' s true, fairies are no longer included in th " Who ' s Who " of the rising generation. The other day I was assigned tin- dreaded tasl of entertaining an eight year old girl, and being rather unacquainted with the activities of modern young children, I dared to suggest a fairy story. " Pooh, that subject ' s antiquated! " my young charge immediately exclaimed, to my horror and amazement. It seems that elves and gnomes are now extinct: " belonging to the old days, when yon were young, " I was informed. For a moment I lacked the courage to reply, but then I came to the conclusion that I had so degraded myself that there could be no harm in making myself even lower in her estimation. " Have you ever heard any fairy stories? " I asked. " Oh sure, but anyone would know that whoever started those things belongs in an asylum, " she said. I was stunned, and again I felt very greatly in need of moral support. " What makes you think there are no fairies? " I asked warily. She stared at me for a moment making me most uncomfortable, and then decided to ignore the question. We were both silent, she thumbing her way idly through a picture book, and I planning my next attack. " Look over there, " I said, cutting out a paper doll. " Do you see the sun streaming through that window? Can ' t you see the litte elves and fairies sliding down those rays? And if you listen carefully you can hear them laughing and calling to each other. Can ' t you see them? " " Huh, " she replied with disgust, " nothin ' but dust! " This was appalling. I didn ' t know what to do: then I asked with desperation, " But what do you think hides your clothes in the morning, and pushes over the ink bottle, and creaks the stair when you ' re trying to get out of the house without anyone seeing you? " Immediately her eyes lit up, and her smile showed her missing front tooth, " Oh, you mean Gremlins! " My mind however failed to respond, " Gremlins? " I asked. " Who are the Gremlins? " " Not THE Gremlins, " the young lady said horrified, " THEM Gremlins! " " Tell me about them Gremlins, " I pleaded. " What do they look like? Where do they live? Are they good or bad? " " Oh, tbem ' re awful bad. " I was told, and I was about to correct her grammar but decided that it would be more prudent to yield to my better judgment, and remained silent. " They ' re only little tiny men, and you can ' t see most of them unless you ' re ' air- minded ' , and they ' re awfully ugly. They ' re a sort of green colour and have big ears that slick out, and they wear little red hats with long green feathers, and usually brown IK TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 pants and a blue jacket, and green socks; they look a bit like ' Dopey ' in ' Snow White ' , but of course they ' re much smaller. Pilots say that they ' re always grinning from ear to ear in a most insolent manner, and they make a peculiar sound rather like a chipmunk when they are up in the air. " Some people say that they used to live in a cloud up in the sky, and they got very angry when the airplanes started flying through their land, so they took their revenge by bothering the R.A.F. pilots in England, but now a great many have become domesti- cated, and some have migrated to America. They live by drinking gasoline from air- planes, and they eat holes in the fusilage of ' planes that look exactly like bullet holes. They usually live in the cockpits of the airplanes, and they play all sorts of games there. One of their favourites is to play ' see-saw ' on the pointers of the instruments; and they love to pull the triggers of the guns at the wrong times; and to play ' hop-scotch ' on the bombsight; and when a pilot is trying to listen to his radio they make loud noises and laugh right in his ears. Some reports say that they used to enjoy riding down on the bombs, but they had to give it up because they lost so many hats that way that they ran out of coupons and couldn ' t get the material for new ones. " Them Gremlins are supposed to fly by swimming through the air, and some people say that the feathers in their hats act as a kind of propeller, but I think they flap their big ears like birds. I ' m going to be a gremlinologist when I ' m grown up ! " At this point the learned and breathless account of my young companion was rudely interrupted by the return of her mother, and I heaved a sigh of relief and made a thankful retreat towards home. Gwen Williams. Form Vb, Fairley House. FIGHTING MEN And these are the ones who are coming back, They ' re tired and worn and scarred; They have travelled over the weary track With a prayer, a gun and a heavy pack. Their shoulders are braided and barred. We ' re proud of them now with their weary grins, Their strong and capable hands; We admire their square and confident chins, We know that they ' re fighting to save our skins. And to rescue the conquered lands. They ' re fighting in heat and in heavy snow, With mortars and tanks and guns; They get to the place they ' re ordered to go Regardless of climate or land or foe. Our country is proud of her sons ! Jan Henry, Form IVa, Ross House. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 ) GOLDEN ROD AS tlic wind swept round the corner, tin; old woman drew her threadbare shawl a little closer ahout thin shoulders. The golden rod in the wicker basket looked dusty, and frequent gusts had scattered its yellow bloom. The passersby scarceh hothered to glance at the old woman, and she knew that their minds were busy with more important affairs. Her shrivelled figure had sat there for many months, and at her eyes had grown dimmer, she had ceased to wonder about the lives and worries of the crowds which she saw. Her thoughts had turned to green fields and waving corn, and although she had never seen the country it was pictured in her mind as vividly as if she was then sitting amidst waving golden rod heneath a distant hlue sky, instead of in a sordid city street with a hunch of faded stalks in her lap. The big clock on the city hall struck six and she rose stiffly to her feet, gathering up the heavy basket at the same time. As she made her way slowly towards the poorer end of the town her thoughts turned back to her son, Johnny. He was in the Navy now, having joined up during the first week of the war. She remembered so well his last leave; he had just been promoted to Leading Seaman, and so they bad spent a few pence out of her meagre savings to buy a piece of his favourite cheese. Afterwards they had sat together by her fire while he told her ahout his life in the Navy. " Rough, but clean " , he had said, and she had suddenly realised that he too had longed for something wider and fresher than the streets of a city, and why he had hated his work as a newspaper boy. She was knitting him a sweater now to keep out those cold sprays; it was nearly finished and just needed to be sewn up. It had taken a long time to make because her fingers had stiffened sitting on cold corners, but into every stitch had gone her love, and her own longing. Up a flight of long, dreary stairs her stumbling feet climbed until they reached a door. It opened, and they crossed the threshold of a poor, bare room, almost filled by an iron bed, a chair and table. There was no fire in the grate now and the room was barren and empty. The walls were a dirty yellow, cracked and peeling, but everything was spotlessly clean, and the wooden boards showed signs of relentless scrubbing. She sank onto the chair and looked despondently at the golden rod — a lot of good it did her, worthless stuff. Head in hands her thoughts as always, drifted back to Johnny. She did hope he would be comfortable in his new sweater, perhaps it could be finished that evening and sent off. He did catch cold so — " Mrs. Brien! Mrs. Brien! " a man ' s raucous voice roused her from her dreams. " Yes? " " The postman left this ' ere thing for you, looks official — like " . Something was pushed under her door. She bent down and turned it over in her worn fingers, spelling out the address carefully. Certainly it was for her, but from whom? Who would want to write to her now? Wondering, she tore open the thin yellow envelope — a lawyer? (she had known one as a young girl). There on a slip of paper were the words, " We regret " — " in action " . They rang through her head and seemed unreal. Dazed, she realized what ihey meant; no more cheering visits from 20 TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 Johnny on leave to break the weary hours; no more planning for him; no more working for him. Her eyes wandered to the sweater — no use sending it to him now. Poor Johnny, he would be cold out there in the grey, heaving seas without his sweater; and she sank into a dull apathy clutching it to her. She went out with her basket next morning as usual, wrapped in the thin shawl. But that day she never saw the hurrying crowds, and they hardly noticed the huddled figure with its pitiful bunch of faded stalks, for her mind was wandering with the yellow blooms. Later in the day a few thin flakes of snow began to fall; a policeman came up, his helmet crowned with a white plume " Better go home, Grandma " , he said; wind ' s getting up " Then he stiffened and peered under the shawl at the tired face. Slowly he straightened up and blew his whistle. Elizabeth Maxwell, Senior Matriculation, Barclay House. WAR AND PEACE Once where happy children played, And housewives baked their bread, And farmers ploughed the earth brown fields, Now only lie the dead. War has struck; throughout the land A million men or more Have left their homes, their wives, their friends, For this is war. The tanks have rolled, the cannons roared, The battle has been fought, Why did they die? For freedom ' s sake, Their death was not for naught. For, surely, in the future years, The peace will come again, Homes will be homes, love will be love, And men will live like men. Jennifer Thomas, Form IIIb., Fairley House. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 21 RIVER OF THE DEEP Down the St. Lawrence so very wide, We went a-sailing with the tide Until we reached the Saguenay, O, thou great river of the free, Mountains rise along your shore, With their great majestic lure Along the deepening river bed, Where thou dost rest thy weary head. The countless spirits of the deep, There ever silent watch do keep. We came to Cape Eternity, Which rose in all her majesty And there the Virgin Mother stands, Her watch to keep o ' er all the lands, With deep and reverent awe we gazed A.nd offered unto God our praise. Doreen Moore, Form IIIa., Barclay House. SHORT STOP THE jerking of the ' plane wakened me. The rabbity little man across the aisle said, " We seem to be making an unscheduled landing. " I glanced at my watch. We were not due for two hours. Just then the stewardess came to tell us that we were obliged to make a forced landing for a minor repair. " This is Mathsland. There will be a delay of ninety minutes. " I followed my fellow traveller down the steps and looked about me. So this was Malhsland, that much publicised ideal state set up by a group of Mathematicians. Well, it would be interesting to see what the crazy coots were up to. " How far to the centre of the town? " I asked a mechanic. " Six squares at right angles to that big tree, " he answered. So that was the way it was! 22 tkafau;ak echoes 194.4 I strode off and soon found myself in the town square. The buildings were all in the modern manner. On my left stood a large structure with huge windows. Inside at desks sat people of all ages, busy at something or other, while others worked at blackboards. It must be a school of some sort. A policeman was standing on the corner so I asked him what it was. " That, " he replied pompously, " is our recreation hall. " " But what are the people working at? " " They aren ' t working. They are enjoying their period of relaxation by doing arithmetic, algebra, geometry and trigonometry problems. " " So! " I said. The copper tapped his leg with a yardstick. " Why do you carry a yardstick instead of a baton? " I inquired. " How else could I measure a man ' s intentions? " " Could you tell me the name of this square? " " Root, " he answered shortly. The man gave me an uneasy feeling so I moved on. Half way across the street I stopped to consider which way to go. A passerby spoke as he hurried along. " Don ' t loiter on the parallel lines. " Quickly I stepped across the car tracks and, reaching the sidewalk, I saw a woman selling apples. I felt like going up to her and saying, " If you have fifty apples and I take twelve away, how many would you have left? " But the thought of that policeman across the street held me back. I decided to find a restaurant and have something to eat, by way of passing the time. Walking along I came to a large edifice with guards at the gate. Upon inquiring, I learned that this was where the Great Minds were labouring over theories and problems. I stood and gazed at this seat of evil and then hurried on. Very soon I came to a school which was just emptying for the noon hour. How smug the children looked! Were they ever happy? Perhaps Mathematicians have their own brand of happiness, but I didn ' t care for the countenances it produced. Ha ! Here was a restaurant. I entered and was shown to a table by a waitress who had a number on her sleeve. This made me feel as if I were in prison being waited on by a " trusty " ! She pointed out that on one side of the menu were tablets for those who lived mathematically. " Very nice, " I replied. " Bring me a steak smothered in onions. " Having finished my dinner, I looked around the room and saw a woman who had just entered with a small child. Motioning to the waitress I said, " If you would change that number at the door and the small fraction beside it into a vulgar fraction, they can occupy this seat and save a chair for someone else, " and then I made a hasty exit. " How did you like it? " asked the little rabbity man when I got back to my ' plane. " That place gives me the creeps. You see I ' m allergic to Mathematics. " " That is very interesting. I understand that the Great Minds are working on a serum now to counteract that allergy in school children. " " So! " I said, and thanked Heaven that I was a man.

TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 23 TROUBLES IN RHYME-MAKING J love you, darling, you know that, I ' ve told you many limes; But though 1 love you very much, 1 can not make up rhymes. They say that love inspires great things, Oh! little do they know That loving you with all my heart I still can ' t make words go. I ' ve heard it said that genius hums In anybody ' s brain, If he ' s got love behind his pen; And yet I try in vain. I truly wonder why it is That if I try my best I still can ' t write like some folks can Who ' ve no love in their breast; But then I ' m just a little boy, And maybe when I ' m ten (I ' ve only one more year to waitj I ' ll write like famous men. Dad says that Shakespeare wrote rhymes well, So when I ' m great like him I ' ll try to write a rhyme for you; And then they ' ll talk of Jim, And say " He writes rhymes really well, I knew him at one time " , And you can say with well-earned pride, " caused that lovely rhyme! " Mary Munroe, Form Vb, Cumming House. IT ' S EASY SHE walked out jauntily swinging her mitts; she was going to show them how foolish it was to say that skiing was difficult, it looked the easiest thing imaginable. She put on her skis and off they went; it was funny the way the things would keep on crossing and sticking, and she was sure they were too long — they were perpetually in ihe way ! She Iried to imitate their easy walk bul failed miserably, so contented herself with loping along in a most undignified fashion. 24 thai ai, ;ak echoks mi What was that she saw in front of her? — a ditch! Surely they weren ' t going to cross that! Apparently they were, and on a measly little hoard too! She decided that that was too much, and crawled awkwardly down one side and up the other. She apologized profusely for having kept them waiting. Now they came to the hill. She was going to show them how to ski. She started climbing — it looked easy enough, but — ouch ! another mouthful of that beastly snow ! Up and at it again ! Well, they couldn ' t expect any reasonable human being to be able to climb anything as slippery as this stuff! She watched the way they " herring- boned " up the hill and tried to do the same and — down again! She was getting a little tired of struggling to her feet. She looked down — they had come very high up; she wondered if she would have the courage to go down. At last — the others had stopped. Somebody went down — what was she worrying about? — it was easy! Then it was her turn. Did she say she was going to show them how to ski? Evoking a prayer to that god peculiar to skiers, she closed her eyes and gave a gentle shove. Oh dear, the snow was bumpy! How did people stay on their feet? It was much faster than she expected — fifty miles an hour at least, she thought. She began to wonder how they did those funny turns. Well, this time she would go straight — plenty of time to try them next time. Oops! What was that? She went flying and " took a header " into the snow; she wondered vaguely why she ' d done that — wasn ' t she meant to be showing them how to ski? They asked her how she enjoyed it. In a tired voice she said she loved it, but of course she was just a beginner. (She would show them what she could do next time!) Denys Clarke, Form Vb., Fairley House. A FRAGMENT November ' s days are numbered twenty-nine When from the heavens an icy filigree Descends, and nestles softly on the ground. Soon others come to join the braver one And gently float to earth in listless swirls, As if still drowsy from so long a sleep. Then soundlessly the flakes drop down, until The last lone crystal cleaves the quivering air, And slowly sinks to rest. The world is still, Clothed in a velvet hood of silence rare. A pause, and then the flowing tide of night Creeps from the hollows and engulfs the land. It slips along the hilltops; then the sky Is shadowed with the onward-surging wave, Which sweeps across the heaven from east to west. But angels keep their vigil day and night, And through the blue they watch with starlike eyes The slumbering earth. And then the great church-bell Sends sounds of curfew winging through the skies, As Peace enfolds the world within her wings. Doreen Harvey, Form VIa., Ross House.

" Nancy Cliff, Form Va., Fairley House. THAI U, ECHOES 1944 A VISION OF PEACE I see a land where bluebells grow, And star-eyed daisies, bending low To meet the clover-grass, Nod gently in the breeze. And here is heard no thund ' rous roar Of aeroplanes. No noise of war Comes to disturb the songs Of birds among the trees. Down in the valley a river flows, A silvern stream, which ever grows And ripples o ' er the rocks, As it runs to join the sea. A sea where stately liners glide. Their gleaming white the ocean ' s pride. Bright lights pierce the darkness, And laughter fills the air. This is no land of dreams, my friend, Nor is it a goal at the rainbow ' s end. Do you not know the place, Or have you forgotten, too? This is our world as it used to b3 In days long past, when man w( re free To live, to love, to pray. This is a world at Peace.

TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 FRANCAIS L ' ESPRIT DU FOYER SI vous avez lu I ' histoire d ' " Abeille " par Anatole France, peut etre que vous me coiinaissez, et peut-etre que vous ne me connaissez pas. Main, en tout c:a«, je suis I ' Esprit qui a loge si longtemps sous une pierre d ' un foyer dans le chateau des Claridee, Meme les plus grands hommes peuvetit faire des fautes, car, quoiqu ' Anatole France fut un admirable ecrivain, il m ' a fait une grave injustice en disant que la duchesse des Clarides a reconnu ma voix le matin que la comtesse de Blanchelande est arrivee pour dire qu ' elle allait mourir. Elle ne savait pas du tout que je demeurai- dans le chateau; c ' etait seulement les enfants, Abeille et Georges, qui le savaient. Bien des annees ont passe depuis ce temps-la; la mer a recouvert le beau chateau, Fage de la chevalerie s ' est efface, et le monde que je connaissais n ' existe plus. J ' etais fort vif dans le chateau des Clarides; je causais et je plaisantais avec les enfants, je dansais, et je m ' amusais toute la journee; mais maintenant je suis souvent fatique et je n ' ai pas Fanimation d ' autrefois pour jouer des tours a tout le monde. II y a eu des guerres et des chagrins, et les Francais, meme les esprits, sont triste pour leur pays, la belle France. C ' est une cruelle deception de voir les paysans qui marchent, marchent, marchent, ehasses de leurs pauvres fermes, sans argent, vetements, ou nourriture, a cote du temps quand tout le monde etait heureux et quand les pauvres commes les riches, vivaient en paix. C ' est pour cela que je ne suis plus le petit lutin que j ' etais dans le temps d ' Abeille des Clarides et de Georges de Blanchelande. Mary Munroe, Form Vb., Cumming House. LA FERME LA vieille ferme etalait sa facade de pierres grises au chaud soleil d ' un beau jour d ' ete. Seule dans la cuisine la fermiere travaillait, faisant avec la traite du matin, des fromages blancs dont se regalerait la famille au souper. Pres d ' elle la soupe bouillon- nait dans la massive cheminee. Dehors, a part quelques poules qui picotaient dans la cour a l ' ombre d ' un chene centenaire, tout sommeillait. Le gros minou noir et blanc etendait ses pattes velues au soleil, surveillant d ' un ceil paresseux les innombrables mouches voletant autour du fumier. L ' etablie etait vide, les vaches etant encore aux champs, he chien sommeillait devant sa niche, sur qu ' aucun chemineau de mauvaise mine ne roderait par les routes par une ehaleur pareille.

UN CHIEN DE BATAILLE Paris, France, le vingt, Novembre, 1918. Ma chore Elise, Je vais vous raconter une jolie histoire que mon cousin m ' a dite hier. En France, pendant la grande guerre, il y avait un beau chien qui s ' appelait " Victoire " . II etait tres grand et il avait un beau pelage tout noir. II y avait sur le champ de bataille un bataillon de Canadiens qui desiraient en- voyer un message a leurs camarades qui etaient derriere une colline. Mais les com- munications etaient coupees et il n ' y avait pas moyen de parvenir aux autres soldats. Le capitaine ecrivit le message et tout a coup il vit Victoire. II attacba le message au collier de Victoire et il l ' envoya vers 1 ' autre. Les Allemands etaient de garde quand Victoire passa a cinquante pieds de leur grande tranchee. Un soldat qui n ' avait qu ' un oeil crut que Victoire etait un buisson parce qu ' il faisait du brouillard. Victoire passa devant lui sans soup on, mais quand il commenca a courir le soldat comprit que c ' etait un chien. II saisit son fusil et il tira un coup de feu sur Victoire; il le manqua mais il tira encore. Cette fois il n ' y avait pas de balles dans le fusil. Victoire savait maintenant que les Allemands le voyaient, ainsi il courut tres vite. Pendant que l ' Allemand prenait un autre fusil, deux Allemands dans une autre tranchee avaient entendu le coup de fusil, et ils cherchaient Victoire. lis tirerent et un coup de fusil siffla pres de l ' oreille de Victoire et l ' autre toucha sa patte. II etait fatigue a ce temps et il boitait lentement. Tout a coup une voix cria — Victoire ! Victoire aboya et un Canadien le souleva et le porta a l ' abri. Un docteur soigna la patte de Victoire, et puis, il prit le message qui etait tres important. Maintenant les communications sont retablies et Victoire se remet vite. Les Cana- diens ont gagne le combat aussi. Victoire est un brave chien et hier le commandant lui a donne une medaille pour sa bravoure; il est tres fier de nos jours. C ' est tout maintenant. Ecrivez-moi bienlot, Votre amie devouee, Helene. Helen M. Ayer, Form IVa., Fairley House.

Christian Haslett, Age 8. tuaI ' ' AL ;ah kciioks mi MY DOG Johnnie is my doggie ' s name And he is black and white, All day he plays at any game And sleeps near me at night. When someone tells him he is bad He goes into a corner; He acts so very very sad, And looks just like a mourner. When I come home from school each day He meets me at the door: He jumps on me and is so gay It makes me love him more. I love my dog with all my heart I think he loves me too, If we should ever have to part I don ' t know what I ' d do. Barbara Magor, Upper I. AT SPRING TIME O, look at the grass, And the roses are climbing, It is gleaming with dew, But they ' ll soon go to bed And the daisies are smothered, They are yellow and white, And a few violets too. And pink and red. The little birds snug in their nests, Always chirp and sing, What always seems to me to be " God save the Gracious King. " Elizabeth Davies, Lower I. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 .°.l OUR VOYAGE FROM ENGLAND TO CANADA OUR first meal on hoard was a very happy one. When we saw the while bread, the hutter and such a wonderful menu, fish and meat, several vegetable ami deMerte, we could not helieve our eyes. After a few days of peaceful travelling, we arrived in the dangerous area. We were lold to sleep all dressed which was not at all comfortable. The first night we heard the alarm hell go, at ten o ' clock. We hail to put our Copl- and life-belts on and go to the lounge. We were all hot and anxious, time seemed quite long. The stewardess, who wanted to ease the tension, asked a passenger to play tli - piano. After a short while we were all singing together. At midnight we had sand- wiches and tea and an hour later we were told to go to our rooms. We had that for about a week, and we got quite used to it. We had another few days of peaceful travelling and one evening we saw the lights of Halifax. Canada had in reserve a lot of happy surprises for us. Michelle Jaquet, Upper I. I WONDER IF I SHALL LIKE IT? NOW that we are hearing such good news about the war, I am beginning to think that I may go back to England this year. I wonder if I shall like it ' There are so many lovely things I shall miss in Canada. First of all the blue lakes dotted round the countryside with yachts, rowing boats and canoes; the beautiful pines, with their slender tops reaching up to the clear blue sky. Here I have long summer holidays and the fun of camp. There is plenty of ice cream in this countrv and we do not have it in the wintertime in England. Winter in Canada is fun, with so much snow, ski-ing, skating, and tobogganing. In England we have a few inches of snow and the next day it is raining. The houses here are warm and cosy, and we go to bed in comfort instead of scuttling about in our cold English rooms. I shall miss Hallowe ' en too, with its ghosts and witches and gay orange pumpkins. Most of all I shall miss my kind Canadian friends. Of course there will be lots of good things in England: discovering my treasures again, my books and my bicycle and seeing all my relations and friends. I shall be longing to see old London again and to find out how many buildings have been destroyed. I want to see St. Paul ' s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London with the Crown Jewels, and Madame Tussaud ' s, the famous Waxworks. Then there will be the lovely countryside, green fields and hedges and old gnarled oak trees. I want to wander through the woods and see the glades carpeted with blue- bells. I shall pick bunches of primroses and see all the gardens gay with flowers. I shall often go to the seashore with its golden sands and high white cliffs. It will be fun to go there just for weekends and be able to have picnics in the winter as well as the summer. I wonder if 1 shall like it? — Yes, I think I will. Shirley Craig, Form II, Ross House. 32 TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 PRIDE COMES BEFORE A FALL I flew through the air with the greatest of ease On my brown, steel-edged, hickory skiis. With the sun on my back, and the wind on my face, I skimmed down the hill with incredible grace. In front of me then I saw a huge crater, And into it fell a few seconds later. I turned head over heels and hurt myself so. With a crash and a bang and a flurry of snow, But after a while I accepted the fact, That except for my pride I was still quite intact. Jane Rew, Form II, Ross House. ASAMA ' S VALLEY THE climate of Japan is rather trying for the white people who used to live there before the war, especially the " nyubai " or rainy season when it is hot and steamy. This lasts for about six weeks or as the Japanese say " until the hollyhock blossoms reach the top of the stalk " , so many of the children went away with their mothers to the cool hills for the summer. Our house was in a beautiful little village called Karuizawa in Asama Valley. It was built by an English lawyer i n Tokyo named Mr. de Haveland. His little girls, Joan and Olivia spent their summers there until they went to America with their mother. They are now famous film stars, Olivia de Haveland and Joan Fontaine. Downstairs was " foreign " style just like a summer house in Canada, but upstairs was Japanese. We slept under mosquito nets on thick comforters spread on soft straw mats. Downstairs we burned " senko " which is a strong smelling incense to keep away mosquitoes and moths. The beautiful little village of Karuizawa was started about fifty years ago when a missionary on a walking trip in the mountains of Japan, came upon a beautiful little valley at the foot of Mt. Asama, a large volcano. He thought it would be a fine place to bring his family for a summer holiday. When he returned to his mission the other families there liked the idea and asked if they could join him. That was the beginning of one of the most famous summer resorts in the Orient. At first the land was very cheap and was owned by missionaries, but soon all the other foreigners (white people) wanted to go there with their children for the summer and it became fashionable and rather expensive. Not many peasants lived in the valley because the earth is mostly cinders and they could not have rice paddies, but those that did grew wonderful vegetables and mulberry plants for their silk worms. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 33 The visiting children like to ride on their bicycles to the native villas and watch the little round while silk worms. They eat so much and so fasl before they turn into cocoons that they make a small crackling noise in their dark sheds. The Japanese call them " baby fingers " because just before they start to spin they hold on to a twig with their back legs and wave themselves about like a baby docs its hands. The valley has many beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs. You can hear r u koo- call but never see them because they are so shy. In the trees, sometimes, you will find little frogs that are entirely green. At evening when other flowers close up, great, yellow primroses open in the fields. There are many pleasant things to do in the valley, hut the most exciting thing is when the volcano erupts. Sometimes it sleeps for many weeks and then will blow up several times in one day. Fire and smoke and great hot rocks shoot out and sometimes kill people who are climbing the mountain, but down in the valley it looks very beautiful. The visitors keep their cameras ready to take pictures when Asama is angry, but they do not get very good ones because they do not know when it will erupt, only the pheasants know. About ten or fifteen minutes before it comes, they run about in a nervous way calling their babies to come and hide in the bushes before the fine powdery ashes drift down on the valley. But only Germans live in Asama ' s valley now. Linda Jackson, Form II, Barclay House. THE SONG OF THE GULLS O sit ye down and listen To the song that ' s to be sung By the gull in yonder rocky cliff, Where for years the echoes rung. It tells of things that happened In the years that passed long by. Of the mysteries in the hillsides, And the beauty in the sky. A song which carries happiness To the earth ' s deepest hole It has a power which penetrates, To one ' s unhappy soul. Though minstrels sing a happy song, And the larks sing in the sky, There is nothing more expressive, Than the gull ' s long plaintive cry. Christine Maitland, Upper II, Cumming House.

We have again supported a cot at the Children ' s Memorial Hospital, and also have sent money to the Queen ' s Canadian Fund for the purpose of buying Christmas presents for British children. Apart from our usual contributions we have aided the Anglican Missionaries in the Arctic by sending enough money to rear a Husky dog; the girls themselves named the dog " Traf " . There is keen competition between the forms — each striving to contribute more than the other.

" One year this included a pageant, last year a play, and this year something different again. The Senior Extra Art class made a backdrop for the gym stage — a Laurentian village, complete with a church, a shrine, mountains and many-coloured houses. Nor was this all, for behind the beautiful stained-glass windows of the church and the yellow stars, (painfully cut out with a razor blade) was hung a light, so that when the hall was in darkness the whole backdrop stood out like a typical village in winter. The arrangement of the School was different this year also, for standing on and below the platform we faced the audience and Mr. Chadwick as he conducted. The general appearance was extremely effective as we all wore white dresses. Of course the most important part of the carol singing was the carols, and this included some of the old favourites such as " Ding Dong Merrily on High, " and many new ones. " Unto us a boy is born " , a bird carol; French carols; and, (supreme effort), a Latin one. The success of these was due to the energy and long-suffering patience of Mr. Chadwick, and Miss Strawbridge. That the carol-singing was a success could be gathered from the generous applause and remarks of the audience who said that " it was the best they had heard. " Elizabeth Maxwell, Senior Matriculation, Barclay House. RED CROSS AND SOCIAL WORK UR Red Cross Work for several years past has been helped and encouraged by the able direction of Miss Hicks. This year, in her absence, Miss Strawbridge has kindly undertaken to organize and supervise this work and we are all most grateful for her suggestions and excellent advice. For the first time this year a Red Cross Committee of four girls was established, each representing her respective House. In this way the girls are kept more closely in touch with the work of the Red Cross. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 37 In the ■ a r I y part of December there was an excellent display of the knitting and sewing done by the sc hool, and the articles from this display were then sent down to the Red Cross. Trafalgar supplied a complete outfit of clothing for a three year old girl in the (lolwyn Bay British War Nursery. The School has collected books and magazines for the troops and classes have collected toys and Christmas cards, which were made into favours and cards for hospi- tals. We also collected stamps and overseas active-service envelopes which are sold to obtain money for the Red Cross. From the sale of the stamps and envelopes and other sundries, $11.00 was raised. Miss Hasell of the Sunday School by Post, who visits the school every year, made an appeal to us for toys, for the children in South Mindoka School. In response to this appeal, toys, wrapped by the girls of Upper I, were sent in time for Christmas to South Mindoka. We have received a very nice letter of thanks from this school. Each year we collect old stockings which are sent to the Grenfell Mission to be made into hooked mats and rugs. The girls contributed $10.80 last year to this Mission by filling in dime calendars. Thirty-one calendars have been taken out this year, and next December we hope to send $37.20 to the Mission. Ten dolls were dressed by the girls during the summer holidays and were sent to Labrador last autumn. Trafalgar contributed $150.00 to the Red Cross Campaign in March. The girls of Trafalgar are pleased to have a small part in the great nation-wide work of the Canadian Red Cross Society. Pat Holland, Form VTa., Barclay House. 14th COMPANY GUIDE REPORT 1943-44 ONCE again it is time to tell of the activities of the Trafalgar Guides during the year. The Company has numbered twenty-four Guides, and welcomes four Guides from England and several newcomers to the great sisterhood of Guides. There are four patrols: Scarlet Tanagers, Baltimore Orioles, Goldfinches, and Kingfishers. We have had one enrolment at which the new Commissioner, for Central District, Mrs. Newcomb, was present. Then there was a tracking hike for the Company one Friday to watch the ski tryouts. Tests have been tried and many passed at each meeting, and everyone has proved herself a keen worker. The song festival held in February at Kildonan Hall, when several districts were guests of Central district was a great success. Joan Bayer led our song, as Captain was not able to be present. Several 2nd Class Guides have passed badges. As there will be several more meetings before school ends, we hope for many more tests and badges to be passed. Denys Clark has become our Company leader, and Miss MacLaren has proved herself an able Lieutenant during the year. Respectfully submitted, J U ANITA C.HONYN, Captain. THAIAI.CAU KCIIOKS 1014 THE WORK IN THE ART STUDIO HE end of another school year approaches and stopping; to look over the activities of the Art Classes, we find that all have been very busy during the year. At Christinas the Extra Art Class made scenery used as a backdrop for the Christmas carols. This was a large curtain made of heavy paper, cardboard, and wood on which were painted little houses and a church, with painted transparent paper windows. Lights behind shining through these windows made a very effective village scene. As part of their first term ' s work, one of the junior forms made small paper angels to decorate the Christmas trays of children in hospitals. The Fifth Form at present are working on an interior decorating project and are completely furnishing a doll ' s house. The Junior Extra Art class has just completed a Shadow Play for which they made their own puppets. The Senior Extra Art class recently visited the Iverley Nursery, for the children of war workers, and are decorating the walls with coloured illustrations of nursery rhymes. These are only a few of the many projects carried out by the students this year. Deepest appreciation and thanks are due to Miss Jaques for her sympathy and patience and untiring efforts in discovering and developing talents in the students and stimulating interest in the many ways of Art. Alexa MacLeod, Form Vb., dimming House. THE DRAMATIC COMPETITION UNDOUBTEDLY the greatest highlight of the first term was the Dramatic Com- petition between the Houses. I think that it was even more successful than the one held last year, perhaps because of the experience that our first attempt gave. It was successful because of the great effort put into it by every House, and because of the fact that it was entered into not as a task, or a competition, but in a joyful manner. When watching the various scenes we realized how much time had been spent in preparations for the presentations, and I think that a great deal of credit is due to the TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 39 members of llie Sixth form who organized their Houses. Hut the Sixth Form ■in. aoi the only ones who deserve praise; much interest was shown also hy the junior members of the Houses. Although they perhaps did not have important or interesting parts to learn they showed willingness to do their best, and it is to them that much of the BUCC4 was due. Each House was required to portray one act of Shakespeare ' s " Julius Caesar " , It was quite a difficult play to present because of the appearance of a ghost, and also the murder of Caesar which was rather difficult to make realistic; however these difficulties were overcome in a most professional manner. The costumes and scenery were both well handled, particularly by Ross House. Although the other three Houses merely used sheets as togas, and had little scenery, Ross House showed their originality b) short tunics, very effective costumes for their soldiers, and excellent scenery. In spite of their use of scenery they demonstrated their knowledge of the Elizabethan Drama by presenting a sign indicating the location of each action. As the audience sat watching the presentation of each House it was difficult to estimate which would be the winner. The acting in each was splendid, and in each the characters proved their ability. As the play continued little difference except for the change in characters portray- ing the various parts was seen. Then Ross House presented Act Four. A gasp of awe, and perhaps dismay, passed through the audience. " Why didn ' t we think of that? " was the question on the lips of many when the character of Ross ' s presentation was announced by the narrators. Little doubt remained in the listener ' s mind as to which House should be the winner. Try as we did, we could find almost nothing wrong with their acting, directions, lighting, costumes, or scenery. We sat entranced. However, it must be admitted that Fairley, Rarclay, and Cumming had presented excellent performances, and all deserved praise. There were some points in the presen- tation of each that particularly stood out. It was a close competition, as all the acts were fine performances, and each House was given praise as well as advice by the judge. At the close of the play, we were addressed by our visitor, Mrs. McKellar. We were praised for our work, advised for future presentations of this sort, and told that Ross had won. However we still had to wait in anxiety for the announcements of the second and third places, as there was only a very small margin between them. The next morning we were given the exact marking which showed that Ross was well in the lead, Rarclay second, and Fairley third. Everyone admitted that Ross House deserved first place for her splendid work. Gwen Williams, Form Vb., Fairley House. 10 TI{AI AU;AK ECHOES 1944 BARCLAY HOUSE " TENDE BENE ET ALTA PETE. " THIS year there has been an unusually keen competitive spirit among the Houses, and the Barclay girls have made a fine effort to retain the Inter-House Shield, which has been theirs for the past two years. This award, however, is yet to be won, and all our members are working with renewed enthusiasm in the last lap, to gain, if not an outward victory, an inward satisfaction. In the first term ' s dramatic competition we placed second, and later in the spelling match, our team came out with top honours. The ping-pong competition, the Inter-House basketball matches, and the track meet are yet to be held, and we are all looking forward to these events with much pleasure. Barclay House has been well represented in the field of sport this year. Peggy-Jean Ross, Janice Jaques, and Joan Macklaier having played on the first basketball team, and Lois Ohman, Violet Cavey, Elizabeth Maxwell, and Barbara Watson on the second. Janice is also a member of the Second Tennis Team and Senior Ski Team, while Joan Macklaier and Elizabeth Scrimger are on the Junior Ski Team. Joan was particularly outstanding at the Inter-Scholastic Ski Meet this year, winning first place in both the junior downhill and slalom. Hearty thanks are extended to Pat Holland our Red Cross representative, and to Joyce McLean Fifth Form representative, who have helped greatly in managing the House. It is with deepest gratitude that we speak of Mrs. Leonard, our Hous e mistress, whose aid has been invaluable throughout the entire year. In conclusion we wish every success and happiness to Barclay House and its members, accompanied by a fragment of ancient wisdom — " The man in the world who is hardest to beat, Is the man who can laugh in the face of defeat! " Peggy-Jean Ross, Ann Taylor, Heads of the House. CUMMING HOUSE " FACTA NON VERBA " THE Heads of dimming House take this opportunity to thank Miss Cam for her great help and encouragement and the members of the House for their work. During the first term we gained a total of 882 points, tying with Fairley House for third place. Nancy Inglis gained the most points during the first term with a total of 88 points. We are also indebted to Elizabeth Bennett, Christine Maitland, Edith Steele, Jean Holmes, Margaret Forsythe and Maeve Fogt, for their enthusiastic work. Although Cumming House does not appear to be good at dramatics we gained 48 points, only 4 points behind third place. On the basketball teams we were repre- sented by Annette Baird, Mary Munroe, and Barbara Little, on the tennis teams by TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 41 Frances Young and Margaret Forsythe, and on the ski teams by Margaret Foraythe. Marielle MacKay, Daphne Andrews, Elizabeth Stair . This year it wan decided that each houee should have a Red Cross representative and we were represented by Elsie Snowdon. A total of 77 points wan gained in the fir-l term for Red Cross work. Also this year for the first time, too, it was decided to have a ping pong competition in which we hope to he successful. dimming House failed to gain any points in the spelling competition although Margaret Forsythe put up a very good fight, as we hope we may do in the field day. The best of luck to you all for future years. Frances Young, Helen Hoult, Heads of House. FAIRLEY HOUSE " SERVICE BEFORE SELF " AS we are still some distance from the end of the school year, all the inter-house competitions have not yet been held. The dramatic competition took place during the first term, and in the final result, Fairley was in third place. Many girls in the house devoted considerable time and effort to the preparation of Act III of Shakespeare ' s " Julius Caesar " which we presented on the day of the competition. The Spelling Bee is the only competition which has been held so far this term. Several girls gained points for the house in the spelling tests, given in each form; from this number the girls who represented the house in the final competition and won second place were selected. Throughout the year, many girls have gained points by knitting and sewing for the Red Cross and being tested on the books, they have read. We look forward to inter-house events still to come. On behalf of the house, the heads wish to thank all those who have taken part in the competitions and all those who have helped their houses competing and by gaining points. Jean McLean, Margot Hurd, Heads of the House. ROSS HOUSE " SAUVITER IN MORE, FORTITER IN RE " . T N September Ross House received thirteen new members who have been enthusiastic J- and valuable sisters-in-arms. To Daphne Pinhey, Gay Latimer, Arlette Steele, Margaret Racey, Sally and Patsy Acland, Elaine Mackay, Diana Davies, Mary Brown, Barbara Davison, Jane Rew and Shirley daig, we wish the best of luck in the service of the yellow ribbon. 42 tkaiaecak echoes 1944 This year, Ross has introduced the " Big Sister " plan. Each Sixth Form girl has taken a Junior under her care and guidance. Gracious as possible in manner and often strong in action, the Seniors have frequently succeeded in leading their little sisters out of temptation and into the wool-room. Camilla Harvey has been our Red Cross representative and we thank her for all she has done for us. Camilla and Marilyn Richardson were the indispensable producers of our part in the Dramatic Competition last November. Ross presented the fourth act of " Julius Caesar " , with Doreen Harvey as Brutus. Thanks to the wonderful cooperation of the cast, (especially the soldiers ) and the stage managers, we won the competition. We compliment the other Houses on their presentations which we enjoyed very much. Barclay House is also to be congratulated on winning the Spelling Competition. House ping-pong was an innovation this year which has proved very successful. We hope the outer study will be as popular next year and that fun and excitement will be found in future tournaments. We thank the girls who have represented Ross House in the various competitions and congratulate Denise Craig on gaining the most points. To Miss Bedford-Jones we express our sincere appreciation for her interest and help. Good-luck, Ross House! Beverley Stewart, Jane Hildebrand, Heads of House.

TRAFALCAK ECHOES l ' H4 THE SCHOOL DANCE AJNUARY 2JSth, 10.30 P.M. — THE TRAFALGAR Gymnasium is becoming filled with J girls and men, and still more are being greeted. Those in the receiving line are: Miss Foster, Mrs. Anderson, President of the Old Girls ' Association and Mr. Anderson. This dance is being held in honour of the graduating class, and is sponsored by the Old Girls ' Association. The hall is brilliantly decorated with flags, school and university crests, and silver cups. The table on the platform is arranged in blue and white, and is covered with refreshments. The girls ' dresses make a veritable kaleidoscope of colour, as they swirl to the music, and everyone looks charming. It is surprising what a long dress and lipstick can do ! As well as the Sixth Form there are many Governors and their wives present, including Dr. Donald, the chairman of the Board. Also attending are several Old Girls, and members of the teaching staff. At last the clock has chimed one, and the music, provided by a nickelodian, has ceased. " God Save the King " , has been played and the guests are filing out. It is easy to see by their enthusiastic faces how much they appreciate the generous gesture of the Old Girls. The Sixth Form girls wish to take this opportunity to express their most sincere thanks to the Association, and especially to Mrs. Anderson and Miss Foster. HE annual gymnastic demonstration is a school event which is always looked for- -L ward to with much eagerness, if not with slight apprehension. Miss Box always has difficulties to overcome, but this year they seem to have been greater than usual, due to the sudden complications of quarantine. The Sixth Forms are certainly to be congratulated on their lovely hoop drill, and both the Upper II and III Forms should be mentioned for their musical exercises and skipping respectively. Vaulting, rope climbing, and tumbling all played their part in the performance, the latter being probably the most enjoyed by the audience. The Fourth Forms were only able to demonstrate their marching on Friday evening, but it was most effective with their red, white, and blue blouses. On Thursday Archdeacon Gower-Rees spoke to us after the demonstration; and on Friday the gymnastic awards were presented, following which Mr. Calvin offered us all, including Miss Box and Miss Strawbridge his congratulations. We all departed, having put the " gym dem " of 1944 behind vis and already anticipating the " dem " of Doreen Harvey, Form VIa., Ross House. THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION 1945.

Early on Saturday morning, February 26th, Windsor Station was the centre of activity. We were soon assembled and finally arrived at Piedmont Station to see glorious sunny slopes ahead of us. This year there were only two teams from each of the eight schools, a Junior and a Senior with six girls on each, of which the four best times were chosen. Instead of alternating the slalom and the downhill between the two teams, both sets of competitors climbed the Molson ' s Downhill together. The run was in good condition and " TRAF ' S " Joan Macklaier won the Junior, while Joan Tyler of Weston won the Senior with a good record of 59.8 seconds. When this was over we went over to the Belvedere Hill for the slalom race. The course was rather difficult so when the Junior race began, it was slightly changed. Jn this, Elizabeth Turner-Bone of The Study won the Senior followed a few second later by Joan Tyler of Weston and Joan Ferrabee of Westmount. Joan Macklaier again won the Junior. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 57 We went lo the Penguin Club House afterwards, where we ate sandwiches and v. r refreshed with hot cocoa. The results were added in a very short time and at last the winners were announced. The shield now has a new owner, Westnioiinl High School, and we extend to theni our heartiest congratulations. Trafalgar Senior learn, composed of Nancy Bruneau, Daphne Pinhey, Margaret Forsythe, Marielle Mackay, Claire .Johnson, and Elizabeth Atkinson- ranked fifth while the Junior Team, Elizabeth Scrimger, Joan Vlacklaier, Daphne Andrews, Colleen Dwyer, Elizabeth Stairs, and Patricia Taylor ranked second, the winner being The Study. When the results were completed, we all rushed madly to Piedmont Station with only half an hour to spare. Once again we would like to thank the Penguins for running the Ski Meet. We know how difficult it was to get timers, scorers, and other helpers, and we appreciate their efforts very much indeed. S of yore, " ye old school " has once more entered into the field of sports under the l guidance of Miss Box. Due to her also, with the aid of Miss Strawbridge, was the success of the " Gym Dem " . In basketball, " Traf " ranked third, being preceded by The Study and Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s. The victor in the finals of the Inter-House Basketball matches, after a close game against Barclay, was Fairley. Last year VIa was the winner of the Inter-Form Basketball and Va and b tied for first place in the Gymnastic Competition; neither of these have taken place yet this year. In the skiing, Joan Macklaier played a brilliant part winning both the downhill and slalom in her class; however, excepting this, " Traf " did not fare as well as in former years. " Traf " was defeated by Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s in tennis last June, but positions were reversed in the fall. Barclay House was victorious in the tennis matches and on Field Day last year. In addition to the annual events, there is to be an Inter-House Ping-Pong Tourna- ment for which the Houses have been practising for some time now; we are sure it will be a great success and perhaps will be added to the long list of Inter-House Sports Competitions. ( Continued from page 55,1 Barbara Little, Gwen Williams and Elizabeth Scrimger have played in some matches and all show promise of being good players. Elizabeth Atkinson, Form Va., Fairley House. TRAFALGAR SPORTS NEWS BESEBVES 50 TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 SCHOOL DAYS AMONG THE BOARDERS A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BOARDER MUFFLED yells of " thank you! " and sleepy groans greet Helen as she stands, a solitary figure, ringing the " rising-hell " . After much clanging, silence prevails, while peace and darkness cling to every cuhicle. Sally Acland, our energetic early-bird, is the first to arise, with many a strain and struggle. The cry goes up, " Five minutes till devotion! " Maxwell is already up; Denys and Sylvia hounce (?) out of bed; but Munroe reluctantly worms her way from warm covers. We next rush to breakfast, which is extraordinarily silent except for the never- ending stream of questions from the Junior boarders, reluctantly answered by the mistress on duty. Immediately following breakfast we hurry and scurry to clear our rooms (we are now adept at wielding brooms, mops, sweepers, and at making beds ) . Now the daily confusions begin, and the Boarders from Third Form down fly at each other with, " I bags first in the Croc, " only to discover that someone has already usurped that honoured place, and the most anxious end up fifth or thereabouts. We sometimes go skating, which turns out to be faltering figures attempted by Skelly, Munroe, Maxwell, and Racey. The mad rush for school follows, thinking that the second bell has rung, only to arrive and find that the first one is five minutes off. We bring out knowledge until ten after one, when odd sights are seen as we lumber over to the House, loaded down with books. The noon meal is soon devoured eagerly by all. We report to the afternoon duty mistress, but that is not the thought which occupies our young alert (?) minds; we are waiting for Maxwell to bring the mail. Shrieks arise from those fortunate few, but the others mourn long unheard of friends and relations. 60 TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 At two-thirty classes begin for some; others go walking or skating. The two dreary hours of study are braced by " tea " , which consists of washing down extra biscuits with cold milk. " Silence reigns, but nothing gets wet " for two hours; then at six-fifteen tired boarders with contorted faces retire to their respective " dorms " for cleansing purposes, the idea of which, I regret to say, is not relished by all. The boarders gorge in the evening feast, which is followed by prayers. More study is indulged in by those not grouped as the " young innocents " , but at eight-fifteen this group adjourns to the drawing-room to relax. Then we hear Skelly being fully warned by Maxwell that if she isn ' t out of her bath at nine o ' clock {not one minute past) drastic measures will follow. Skelly rushes through her bath, and when she finishes Maxwell is running around fully clad drawing posters, or is involved in other Maxwellisb tasks, (what follows is cut out by censor!) The usual situation prevails at nine twenty-five — no one is ready for devotion, hut somehow we manage. At nine-thirty the House lights dim and go out, as a long prolonged yell of " God bless the Eskimaux " drowns out the weak " Goodnights " . All is quiet until a bottle cap is dropped, whereupon we realize that Denys is applying her famous " Dead Clam Goo " ! ! ! At last the cares of the day flit away as the Boarders settle down to slumber and peace ( ? ) Sylvia Skelly, Form IIIb., Gumming House, SPRING High in the heavens the clouds are swinging, Up among the tree tops the birds are singing, Down in the village the church bells are ringing, Spring is here. Out in the meadows the children are playing, High in the air, the trees are swaying, Out in the fields the sheep are baying, Spring is here. Up among the hills, the cows are lowing, Among the grasses green, the flowers are growing, Out on the river the boatmen are rowing, Spring is here. Diana Davies, Form II, Ross House. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 THE TEA PARTY ON Sunday, February 27th, we invited the boarders of Miss Edgar ' s and Mi Cramp ' s to afternoon tea and to skate if possible, bul the rink was in no fit State After they had arrived, and removed their coats, we adjourned to the drawing room, where, after a great many introductions, we served cocoa, sandwiches, and cake. The spectacle of some twenty-five of us sitting round balancing cups and sandwiches amused me intensely. After tea we all hung around the piano and sang everything from " Drink to me only with thine eyes " , to " Waltzing Matilda " ! Then we discussed our respective schools and all the other topics which always crop up. At this point a mistress arrived to take our visitors home, so, after many " goodbyes " and " come agains " , they departed. This is the first time that we have invited the boarders of any other school here, and I think it is a very good idea, for usually the only time we see each other is when we are trying to out-shout each other at matches. Denys Clakke, Form Vb, Fairley House. THOUGHTS AT A MUSIC RECITAL IT ' S Friday evening and eight o ' clock is drawing near. The guests are arriving fast and you seem to be getting a peculiar feeling. As the first item on the programme comes to a close, you half wish you were the first person for then you would not have to think of a lot of tragic things that might happen and would be able to enjoy the rest. You feel as if you wanted to sink through the floor when the item before you comes to a close, but then you look around and everyone seems to be very calm just as if it were an everyday event. Now it ' s your turn. What do you do? Bow before or after your piece? Then it suddenly comes to you that you bow after. You find that you have forgotten your piece but no, it is right there in front of you. You feel for the pedal. No, it is the top one. Finally you find it; then, just as you are about to play, you find the stool is in the wrong place. You fix it and put it up a little higher. Then you start. Just as you start you notice your sash is undone, or half undone. In your thinking about it you find you ' ve left out a repeat. Your piece is meant to go slowly but you find you are playing it too fast. What will Mrs. Hawkin think of you when she especially told you to keep it going slowly? The next part of your piece is supposed to be played fast and you play it too slowly. Then, in trying to play it faster you hit A flat instead of B flat. Then all of a sudden you have played the last note, and it is too loud. All you can do is to get up and bow. When you are back at your place your neighbour tells you that when you bowed you looked at the floor and then got very red. After the other girls have played, you feel so ashamed of your piece and feel sure that if you were given another chance you would do better. Then after refreshments you go home to bed and hope for the best at your next music lesson ! !

But seldom has it had a more devoted member than Miss Hicks, of Matriculation II, teacher of Botany, Biology, Natural Science, and Writing. When, after twenty-three years, Miss Hicks was forced to leave us last June owing to the grave illness of her sister, her heart must have had a double burden to bear. Nothing less than so serious a consideration could have taken one so conscientious from our midst in examination time. We realize fully what it must have cost her to arrive at the regretful decision of sending in her resignation after so long a period of devoted service. We take advantage of this occasion to offer her our genuine regrets. Miss Hicks never counted cost to self. She gave unstintingly of her knowledge, her energy, and her time. No school function was complete without her presence. Her school was her life. No detail of its history, of its aims and ideals, its welfare and its good name escaped her watchful interest. No one who came under her influence coidd remain unaware of her sense of duty in all things. She gave her best and was never satisfied with less than the students 1 best. In health and in illness, Miss Hicks never spared herself. Earnestly, conscientiously, and eagerly she imparted her knowledge of the living world. Numerous indeed were her interests and activities. Many will recall her unflagging zeal for all Red Cross endeavours, her ready praise for all work done in its behalf, her never-failing encouragement and recognition of effort. Others will recall with profit and pleasure some excursion to woods and field in search of wild-flowers. Miss Hicks was also a great lover of and keen student of birds. In fact, she loved all animals and even reptiles. Some of us will recall with remembered smile her admiration one day last year when she brought a greenish-yellow snake to the staff-room. " Just look ! " said Miss Hicks. " Isn ' t he a pet! " She was quite surprised at the shudders it provoked from those of us whom she invited to stroke and admire the reptile. To some of the " Old Girls " that spot of spilled ink which " must be removed from the floor at once " will rise in retrospect. But whether it be the sewing in which she so painstakingly instructed her little charges, the excellently painted charts she made for her own classes, the sets for school-plays of by-gone days; whether it be the delightful Hallowe ' en party so generously offered annually to the Upper Class girls, boarders and staff, or other activities too numerous to mention — that complete selflessness that " reckoned not the cost " will long live in the memory of us who knew her and had learned to appreciate her qualities. It is indeed with sincere regret that her resignation has been received and accepted. Yet Miss Hicks has left so much of herself with us, that no matter where the future may take her, she will always remain a part of " Old Trafalgar " . M.G. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 63 MISS BEDFORD-JONES AT the moment of going to press we Learn, willi very great regret, that Miss Bedford Jones is leaving Trafalgar to take up a position at Crofton House School, Vancouver. Throughout the fifteen years of lier service on our Staff she lias returned to tlx school in generous measure those good things that she herself received as a pupil in the earlier days, giving of her best in stimulating teaching, wise counsel, and friendly understanding. As Form Mistress of Upper II, Miss Bedford Jones cared for her children with a sympathy and affection that endeared her to all of them. Several times this tribute hu- been heard from Old Girls: " The year in ' B.J.V form was one of the happiest I spent at ' Traf ' . " Miss Bedford-Jones was Head of Ross House and has been a guide and friend to its members, encouraging them in their difficulties and setting in front of them a high ideal of service. After Miss Bryan left, Miss Bedford-Jones assumed the respon- sibility of the magazine and through her untiring efforts " Trafalgar Echoes " has maintained its high standard. No tribute that one might offer could give an adequate recognition of her work here. Rather it is to be found in the happy and awakened minds of those girls who have been so fortunate as to come under her guidance. She will take with her the affectionate wishes of all her colleagues and pupils who unite to wish her God speed. N.C. and G.L. MADEMOISELLE DILLON QUELLE charmante collegue, amie et professeur vous avez ete pour nous toutes, et combien nous vous regrettons! Mais vous etes partie pour faire votre devoir envers la France plus completement, vous semblait-il. Pourtant, vous l ' avez servie ici et combien efficacement. Ce n ' est pas tout d ' enseigner la grammaire et les idiotismes si difficiles de la langue francaise. N ' importe quel pedant digne de ce nom peut le faire. Mais une vraie messagere de la France a un role plus grand a remplir et vous l ' avez rempli. Pendant ces annees que vous avez passees avec nous a Traf, vous avez ete une des ambassadrices les plus accomplies de la France puisque vous avez fait fleurir ici, sur la terre etrangere, les qualites que nous Fran ais, nous estimons le plus: l ' elegance de 1 ' esprit, des manieres et de la tenue, l ' amour du travail bien fait sans en avoir l ' air, le courage souriant. Et e ' est de cela que nous vous remercions de tout notre coeur. Et e ' est pour cela que nous vous disons: Au jour de la victoire, revenez ici nous faire une petite visite. Vos amis vous attendent. Au revoir et a bien lot W.J. 64 TRAFALGAR ECHOES L944 MRS. IRWIN MRS. IRWIN, by her faithful and conscientious service has set before the girls an appreciation of the best, both in work and conduct, and we will be very sorry at the end of the school year to say goodbye to her. She has had a real understanding of her pupils, and as a Form mistress especially, her patience, kindliness and sympathy have endeared her to many. Staff and girls alike join in wishing her most sincerely many years of good health, good fortune and happiness. G.L. LD GIRL PRESIDENT ' S REPORT, 1943-44 THE magazine goes to press too early this year to contain the annual report of the Old Girls ' Association, but I shall endeavour to give a brief account of our activities to date. A general meeting was held in November, with a business session and elections of committees. This was followed by an interesting talk by Miss Brown on the early history of the school. Jane Hildebrand, the head girl, then gave a reading of an article she had written for the magazine; an imaginary conversation with Mr. Donald Ross, the founder of Trafalgar. The Old Girls ' Association Dance in honour of the graduating classes was held again in January in the school gymnasium. Due to wartime conditions, this is a very simple and restricted affair, but the girls enjoy it and are most appreciative. The various committees have had an active year. The Red Triangle Hut Canteen is still staffed by Trafalgar Old Girls on Sundays, and the girls have earned a good reputation for efficiency and cheerfulness. They are always glad to welcome new workers, and anyone interested is asked to get in touch with the committee. The Scholarship Committee reports that no scholarship will be awarded this year, as we now have two girls in the school with scholarships. When our first recipient, who will have held her scholarship four years, graduates next June, a new entrance one will be offered and an examination set. TRAFALGAR ECHOES 1944 65 The Membership Committee has been most active this year. A membership drive is being held this month. To make this possible tint committee checked every sixth form list since the school opened in 1887 and from these compiled nearly a thousand carefully checked names and addresses. A letter has been sent to all these, briefly stating the activities of the Association and inviting them to attend our next meeting and to see " Do You Remember? " , a series of amusing sketches in costume about the school from 1887 to the present day. We are hoping for great results from this member- ship drive, as a more active paid-up membership would materially benefit the scholar- ship fund and our other projects. The Magazine Committee edits these pages in the magazine, and is anxious to obtain any news of former Trafalgar girls. They are particularly anxious to keep track of all those in the Services or engaged in interesting forms of war work. As your president I have been a guest at the annual dinner of Miss Edgar and Miss Cramp ' s Old Girls ' Association and at the Christmas Carol service of the Study, in which their old girls always take part. These were most enjoyable events. Our thanks are due to Miss Foster and to the teaching staff of the school, and to Miss Randall in the house, for their unfailing interest and co-operation with the Old Girls ' Association. Their willingness to allow us to over-run the school, contributes greatly to the enjoyment of our meetings. Respectfully submitted, Margaret T. Anderson, President.

Look Phoneward, Angel! What ' s being worn this season? Well, telephone wires, for one thing. They ' re being worn by men — by men in munitions plants, tank arsenals, air craft factories, and shipyards. Among civilians, telephone conversations will be shorter this season. The smart thing is to make fewer calls, and make them brief, like a Noel Coward play. Take one of these marathon talkers who starts out with the latest on Mary Jones, and winds up with the post-war bobby pin situation in Northern Siberia. Multiply her by the number of residence telephones in Montreal, and maybe you under- stand why the war effort took so long to get around to the invasion of Europe. Anyway, there ' s one explanation. Unnecessary conversations tie up telephone ex- change equipment which is needed for important war calls. Speech — it ' s wonderful, but in war- time, the best caller-uppers are seen with a clip on the lip and a bung on the tongue. They ' re easy on the wires which are weary with war calls! 76 TKAFAECAK ECHOES 1944 Compliments of Ritchie, Brown Company CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS Compliments of MacDougall, Macfarlane, Scott Hugessen ADVOCATES BARRISTERS SOLICITORS 507 PLACE D ' ARMES HA. 2266 Compliments of Donald MacQueen Compliments of Macleod, Riddell Co.
