LIMITED A CENTURY-OLD TRADITION FOR QUALITY [1] it tKe court of Good Queen Bess (THE STORY OF A STOCKING) Four hundred years ago, an English nobleman returning from Spain pre- sented Queen Elizabeth with the first silk stockings she had ever seen. Her Majesty was overjoyed, for, in- those days everyone wore stockings made of woollen cloth. Thus was a new fashion born. Since the day of silk, however, science has wrought miracles in the creation of so-called " high tenacity " yarns whose inherent beauty and tensile strength are making possible previously- un- dreamed-of visions of loveliness. Of these recent developments, the luxur- ious Nylon stockings have captured feminine hearts throughout the world, and tomorrow ' s creations hold promise of incomparable beauty and wear. And in those days, as at the present moment, ORIENT Beauti-Skin Hos- iery will continue to hold their place as the world ' s most beautiful stockings.

Since she has been at Trafalgar, Mademoiselle has worked ceaselessly to acquaint her pupils with the French language and in doing this, she has made the lessons interesting by her wonderful ability in story-telling and by her keen sense of humour. But Mademoiselle has other accom- plishments too. She is a talented painter and is a marvel with a sewing needle and she has a passionate love of gardening. At Metis, Mademoiselle has organized a small summer-school, taking in a few pupils for one or two months and with magnificent results ! Mademoiselle has given long and faithful service to the school, and wo liopc slio will be with us for many years to come. Bonne chance, alors. Mademoiselle, bonne chance et bonne saute. [12] iEDiTOR lAL C3SJ AS THE sands of time slip rapidly through the hour-glass of another successful school year, we begin to bring to mind the outstanding events of the past months. Because the influence of war is yet upon us, even in the quiet security of school in a country untouched by the devastations of this world conflict, the magazine must go to press long before the major part of the present school year has become history, and before many of the usual school activities have been accomplished. Last June a great loss was sustained by the school in the departure of several mem- bers of the staff. We wish here to extend our sincere wishes for a happy and successful future to Miss Bedford-Jones, Mrs. Irwin, Miss Strawbridge, Mrs. Lamb, and Made- moiselle Royer, and to mention our appreciation for their unstinted gifts of service to the school. We were fortunate in being able to welcome Miss MacLennan, Mademoiselle Lamothe, Miss Stansfield, Miss Ewing, and Miss Gillis, who have already established themselves as respected members of the staff of Trafalgar. On several occasions so far, we have had the pleasure of being addressed by Dr. Donald and Archdeacon Gower-Rees. In addition, we were pleased to have Miss Lucy Sutherland of Somerville College, Oxford, who gave us an interesting account of the work of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, and Miss Hasell, who spoke to us on her work in Western Canada. Trafalgar Day was celebrated in ap- propriate fashion, with Professor Maclennan as guest speaker. Again this season Trafalgar has been a close contender for the dominating position in sports. Our chief opponent seems to have been Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School, to whom we lost the Tennis Match this Fall, and who, at the moment, is tlie sole remaining cause for worry concerning the First Basketball Team. The Gymnastic Demonstration, under the expert guidance of Miss Box, was an unqualified success. The future also holds visions of the Inter-Form and Inter-House Basketball Matches, the Match with the Old Girls, the Gym Competition, the Tennis Match with the Staff, and finally Field Day. EDITOR [13] We offer our felicitations to those Old Girls who have achieved so much in the skiing field, particularly the Wurtele twins, Margaret and Dorothy Burden, and Joan Staniforth, who represented Canada at Pico Peak. At t})e Inter-Scholastic Ski Meet this year Trafalgar ' s First and Second Teams took third place. The rivalry that accompanies House activities seems to have reached a new peak, and this term the Fairley members are rejoicing in their ability to hold a narrow margin of points over Ross. The success of Fairley is due partly to its lead in the Dramatic Competition, held in November, and judged this year by Mrs. Sadler. Particularly out- standing has been the Red Cross work, now under the capable supervision of Miss Stansfield. The members of the Sixth Form would like to assure the Old Girls ' Association of their gratitude for the Dance, the success of which has been acclaimed by all. In the same strain we congratulate the many Old Girls who were members of last year ' s Sixth Form, and who attained favourable results in the McGill examinations, in particular, Jane Hildebrand, winner of the Trafalgar Scholarship. We wish good luck to all of the form who have gone on to McGill. It is appropriate to mention here that the work of last year ' s Prefects in enhancing the attractive appearance of the Prefects ' Room has ever been a source of great pleasure to their successors. The number of Overseas Guests who came to us during the first years of the war has fast been decreasing. In recent months many have returned to their homes in Eng- land or France, and it is known that still others expect to leave in the near future. To all these we wish a pleasant voyage and happy reunions, and we hope that we may some day renew those friendships that have grown out of the war. Those of us who are in our last year of school would like to leave with those who follow some understanding of our inexpressible feelings of gratitude to all who are a part of Trafalgar. We shall leave confident that they will receive the same understand- ing and guidance that we have experienced during our years at " Traf " , and we wish those who follow in our steps every success in the coming year. " A flower unblown; a book unread; A tree with fruit unharvested; A path untrod; a house whose rooms Lack the heart ' s divine perfumes; A landscape whose wide border lies In silent shade ' neath silent skies; A casket with its gifts concealed — This is the Year that for you waits Beyond tomorrow ' s mystic gates " . In conclusion, the Magazine Staff " would like to thank Miss MacGachen for her very valuable aid in the compiling of this edition. We further extend our thanks to all those wlio hav 5 helpcMl nialerially in its publicalion, and ho|) liuil you enjoy reading this year ' s " Mag " as much as we have en joyed taking part in its preparation.

And dream no more of glorious days gone by; Delight and fantasy exist no more, But in dark graves of spite and malice lie. Put on thy robe of perfumed ecstasy. Bring light to brighten hearts with sorrow scarred. And souls, whose one rejoicing lies in thee; Thy joy alone by human hate unmarred. Cast off thy hoary coverlet of snow; Begem our earth with crystal drops of rain; Bring forth thy glowing grace to grief-dimmed eyes. Free from the taint of horror ' s ghostly stain. Gentle Spring, inspire the heart of Man, And let thy fragrant power kill his wrath That thine own bower, home of a joyful peace. Become forever more his rightful path. Ann Taylor, Senior School Certificate, Barclay House. DAW HE GAY twitter of birds outside my bedroom window awakened me. I slipped X quietly out of bed, tiptoed across the room and looked out of my window. Dawn was breaking and I could just make out the grey-green waters of the Channel, the white cliffs, and the golden sands, lapped by the white-crested waves. As I watched the sky, the darkness began to fade and arrows of light shot out from the east, breaking the sky into little fleecy clouds. As it grew lighter, I could see the red sails of a fishing fleet coming in after a night ' s hard toil. The sand became a deep gold and the seaweed on the little children ' s castles glistened. The morning dew on the lawn before my window shone like pearls. The flowers which had closed for the night were beginning to open, and along the winding lane the milkman on his early round was singing. The freshness and beauty of this peaceful scene remained long in my memory. Three years later, I was staying in the same house — not for my summer holidays but because I had been evacuated from my bombed town. Early one morning, I was awakened by a thundering roar. I rushed to my window, pulled aside my blackout cur- tain and looked out. The scene on which I gazed was very different from that which I had seen three years before. No longer were birds singing in the garden; high up in the sky and flying swiftly towards the Continent, was a fleet of dark bombers, flecked by the rising sun. The sun was rising like a red ball shining through a thick fog, which I soon recognized as the smoke from an armada of warships out in the Channel, steaming on some perilous mission. On the sand there were no longer children ' s tunnels and castles, but instead masses of thick, ugly, barbed wire ; where there had been lawns, there were now neat rows of vegetables. The tops of the cliffs were all enclosed, and I could see projecting from barricades the noses of anti-aircraft guns searching for enemy planes. Where I had previously seen the jolly milkman, a dispatch rider was dashing along and a jeep stood at the side of the road. How war had changed even the view from my window ! But as my eyes turned upwards to the sun, it seemed to smile at me and remind me that for countless centuries it had witnessed many such changes — from joy to sorrow, from peace to war — and that soon it would rise again on the kind of world for which we are all longing — a world of peace. Denise Craig, Form VA, Ross House. [17] CHURCH BFXLS Like a theme of some tiauntitif;; melody, That fades only to liave its memories Linger and repeat themselves over and over In that little corner of a wearied mind, Singing its hopes and reviving the spirit. Lifting the head of one howed for life Under the weight and cares of the world; So to the soul is the ringing of church hells Over the hill, on a clear wintry night. Elizabeth Brow, Form VI, Ross House. PREFECTS (with apologies to Lewis Carroll) " Aren ' t you happy, dear Prefect? " the young girl said, " For we are sublimely gay; We run in the corridor, talk on the stairs. Why don ' t you join us in play? " " In my youth " , the old Prefect replied to the girl, " I was just as unruly as you. But now that I ' m old and be-girdled as well, What do you think I can do? " " You are wise " , said the girl with the greatest of awe, " And also imposing to see. But why do you ruin yourself in pursuit Of children who shout in their glee? " In my youth " , said the sage with a frightful grimace, " I tried the very same thing. But when you ' re a Prefect and very ' high-hat ' . To the wind all those follies you fling " . " Do you think it is easy " , the young girl said, " To rise to such a great height? I ' d lief be a Prefect when I reach the Sixth. What hope if I follow your light? " " In my youth " , said the wise one, with serious face, " I invariably aimed at the top. If you ' re good in the Sixth, an example to all. There ' s no telling where you will stop. " Denys Clakke, Form VT, Fairley House. [lai ON A SCHOOL EDITION OF SHAKESPEARE THE school-editions of literary masterpieces are curiosities which we take for granted these days, but a few hundred years from now they may well be collectors ' items. Our descendants will handle the yellow pages of our school-edition Shakespeares with considerably more reverence than did their great-great-great-grandparents. My own third-hand copy of " Macbeth " will be an especially good example of this species of a not so rare animal. Mulling over its pages, I have often thought that, particularly in war-time, it is an almost criminal waste of paper to include the text of the play itself in editions of this sort. It was Shakespeare who originally wrote the play, I know, but the editor of the school-edition, assisted by the literary critics of four centuries and three countries, has rewritten and clarified it so well, that it is high time Shakespeare gave up, and bowed himself gracefully out of the whole affair. My edition of " Macbeth " , and I take it as being the average edition, is composed as follows: — A Foreword; An Appreciation of Shakespeare; paragraphs on the Historical Drama and " Macbeth " ; lengthy and complete sketches of the main characters; a chronological table; Source of the Plot; Notes — thirty-two pages full; an Appendix; Questions for Junior Students; Questions for Senior Students; General Questions; Examination Papers; Essay Subjects; and Passages for Memorization. As an afterthought, the text of the play is inserted, in case anyone should be interested, and the whole conglomeration is labelled " Macbeth " . At some future date people will have forgotten which is by Shakespeare, and which is not, and instead of " Macbeth " , the Notes and Questions for Senior Students will be dramatized on the stage. There is an additional feature, however, to school-editions, and this one cannot be claimed by any editor. It is a mark that is put upon a book only after it has been pored over and thumbed through thoroughly; it gives to a book half its value, and is a good standard by which to judge its worth or worthlessness. This is the time-honoured doodling. The first doodler was the monk in his cell, and out of his doodling grew an art. I doubt if there is much art in present-day doodling, but there is a great deal of self-expression. My edition of " Macbeth " has passed through the hands of two people who have left upon it their characters. I have never met either of them, but I am intimately acquainted with both. The first possessor was a dominating sort of person. She writes in a firm, round hand and interprets Macbeth in a way which might startle even him. Once this person got hold of an idea, I don ' t think she would ever let go, even in the face of all the outraged literary dictators who have flourished since the world began. She doodles copiously and very much off the point. It is evident that she was not the least impressed with either the poetry of Shakespeare, or the tragedy of Macbeth. Under Macbeth ' s well-known soliloquy on sleep, she has drawn the face of a sleeping man, whose snores, expressed by the letter " Z " , flow out of his mouth and form a complete frame around the passage. She has further shown her indiff ' erence to poor Macbeth ' s misfortunes, by adorning every picture of him with an inky coiffure, taste- fully arranged in a pompadour, which looks odd, not to say out of place, in conjunction with his bushy beard. [19] The second owner of my " Macbetli " is completely different. She writes in a slanting spidery hand and is very neat. Her remarks on the text are very good, and quite in accord with the voluminous instructions which enf ulf the play on either side. Her doodles show that she has appreciated the drama, and particularly that she feels keenly the terrible tragedy of Macbeth himself. She has attempted to erase Macbeth ' s hair-do ' s, but, not being successful, she has counter-balanced the effect by giving him hollow cheeks, thick eyebrows, and wild staring eyes. She has shown understanding of Lady Macbeth ' s masculine character by giving her a beard; she has also done drawings of desolate heaths, blasted trees, and ruined castles. I would not part with my old school-copy of " Macbeth " for all the silk-bound, India paper, engraved editions in the world, and when I die, I shall bequeath it to the Museum of Curiosities and Fine Arts. , rr- rr t. tt Joan Thackray, form Vl, Ross House. THE CASTLE It stood alone, dejected, tall and dark; For many years it had remained that way; The walls that stood so far above the trees Had eyes that watched the time pass day by day. Before, within the ramparts, bugle calls Awakened sleeping Normans to the dawn. The clash of steel against the flagstones rung. The cry of hunters, and the sound of horn. Here the knights had rested for their duels. And dukes had feasted in the banquet hall. And antlers hung above the guarded doors; But as comes night, so ancient homes downfall. No more are splendid banquets held within. No drawbridge rises and no knights pass by; The days of Norman conquest are long past But still the castle stretches to the sky. Christine Maitland, Form IIIb, Cumming House. THE ENCHANTED CUP PROLOGUE GWAINDAI), Gwandad! " a small curly-!ieaded boy gently shook his grandfather, who was sitting shim|)ed over on a settle by the fire. " Hull, oh, " he grunted and straightened up, lifting the little boy on his knee as he did so. [20] " Oh, Gwandad, you has to guess what Morag has. " He laughed and pointed to a little girl standing in front of them. " Guess! " cried the wee boy impatiently. " Mm, an apple? " " No, " laughed Morag. " Some crumpets? " " Wrong " . " It ' s a — " the small boy tried to be helpful. " Keep quiet! " ordered his sister. " It begins with C. " The chubby boy whispered into his grandfather ' s ear. " Would it be — er — a cup? " " Oh, Rob, you told! " Glaring at her little brother, she brought forth a green glass cup, broken in two. Smiling at her grandfather, she said, " See? " " Mmm, where did you find this? " " In a drawer of an old chest in the attic. " " One bit ' s mine, " piped up Rob. " There are words on it. What do they say? " Morag pointed to the rim of the cup, " It ' s Latin, " muttered her grandfather. " Why do you look so strange? What ' s the matter? " questioned Morag. " Go, go " . The old man motioned toward their nurse who had just entered the room and their loud protests faded as they disappeared down the hall. The old man looked off into the distance as if he were thinking of something long ago and far away. -X- It was a rainy night and the " Lightning " coach had been due at the " Thistle and Sword " , Kilsyth, Sterling, for over an hour. Inside the small inn a fire burned cheerfully in the large open fireplace, sending a warm orange glow over the room. Through an open door could be seen a fat bald-headed man, dressed in brown homespun breeches, and a well-worn green velvet waistcoat; he was busying himself at a table, laid for two. He came out into the main room and looked around. " Margot! Margot! " he called. A buxom girl in her late ' teens opened the door. Her frilled cap hung limply around her warm full face. " Tell Coll tae bring oop twa bottles o ' wine. They ' re in the left hand corner of the cellar " , he added as his daughter let the door swing back. " Deary me! " he shook his head and wiped his bald spot with a hand- kerchief. " Are they no ' here yet? " queried Margot from the door. " I ' m havin ' an awfu ' hard time keeping the dinner hot " . " Ye ' ll just hae ' tae do the best ye can " , answered her father as he opened the front door and peered into the wet blackness, but he shut it quickly for the damp air rushed in. " Tut, ah hop naething ' s wrong " . " Hoots! Ah hear the beat o ' horses ' hooves. " He rushed to the door, and threw it open. " Hey there, ho! Coll, the horses! " and a boy hurried out from a side door as the coach drew up before the door and two weary travellers stvimbled into the inn. " Well, well, ye ' re here at last. Welcome to the ' Thistle and Sword ' , Mr. Napier. " The host bowed and rubbed his hands. [21] The two men gave him their wraps and crossed the room to the fire. " What a ride! " commented a tall, well-built man, and his pleasant face was lit by a smile as he regarded his friend. " Oh, what a rough road ! I ' ll be as stiff as a poker tomorrow. " " Never mind, Tom, it ' s always an experience. " " Huh " , grunted the other man, obviously the younger of the two, but of a smaller build, with a long thin face and a habit of raising one eyebrow questioningly. " In here, gentlemen. " Their host ushered them into the adjoining room. When the door closed, Mr, Napier ' s cheerful expression changed to one of grave concern. " Well, and how ' s my chief? " " The Prince hasn ' t been in such good spirits lately, I ' m afraid. " The tall man known as Macpherson told his host. " Ah dinna think it wull be lang until all this fighting is over. It was a sad day when he came to Scotland. Oh, I ' m not disloyal tae him, mind ye, but it was a hopeless job from the beginning. Ach, what will become of him, ah dinna ken. " Then recollecting himself and his duties as host, he called his daughter to bring the punch, and in she came bearing a hot bowl of the steaming beverage. " Ah, that ' s the stuff, lass, " grinned young Tom, while she was all smiles and would have hung around longer had not her father nodded to her to leave. " And so, " went on Macpherson as he ate his dinner, " the Prince had a green glass goblet, which he prized highly. It ' s very old, supposed to have been stolen from a church, long ago, and it bears a Latin inscription around the lip, which means ' Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid ' . This cup, or chalice, has been stolen and Prince Charles is at his wit ' s end. He thinks that he will lose ' the cause ' because it is gone. I don ' t know just how much there is to that, but the men got wind of it and quite a number refuse to fight until it is found. " " Things have come to a pretty pass, " muttered Tom, " Anyway, this cup seems to have cast a spell over him; he won ' t eat; he thinks that it will never be found, and he broods over all the lives lost on our side, — feels he ' s responsible. " " The Prince is a wiser man than when he came, " Mr. Napier said solemnly from a corner. .j It is one week since the three gentlemen met and now Mr. Napier is standing before the fireplace beside Macpherson, who is holding a green glass goblet. " Well, well, so ye found it at last. My, won ' t the Prince be glad to see you, now that things have been going poorly. " Crash! The goblet fell to the floor as Mr. Napier accidently hit it with his elbow, when reaching for the clock. It was an hour after that, that the Battle of Culloden ended. EPILOGUE " A broken cup, a broken cause, " said Mr, Napier and he sighed as he rose from lli(- scllle. RosEMAijY Graham, Form IVa, Ross House, |22| THOUGHTS DURING AN ALGEBRA EXAM. The bell rings loudly. " No more talk! " And, trembling with fear, to our desks we walk. " Have you your pens, girls? I won ' t ask again! " Well, I think I have everything, minus a brain. Papers are given, I read mine with fear. Everything I don ' t know seems to be here. Settling down quietly, all start to write. Doesn ' t X = Y, or was X is B, right? On to the next question — consternation! Whoever called this a simple equation! I ' d studied square root till the breaking of dawn. Now here there are factors ! My chances are gone. Question two is a horrible problem, I see. How do you do these things? Oh, dearie me! Can ' t say X is a sheep or Y is a cow. But try as I will I can ' t think how You word it correctly. An hour has passed! Still four more questions until the last. On to the next one! Does A have X dollars? Time out to envy intelligent scholars. Oh, well, I ' m sure to get one at least right. But I ' d like to murder Messrs. Hall and Knight. Three more questions partially finished, And my hopes of passing have slowly diminished. Glance at my watch again; five minutes more. Must try again to get number four — There goes the bell ! Oh, well, trust to fate. At least I can say I could do number eight. Stagger to recess, and feel there ' s a plain Natural space where there once was a brain. Jean Sinnamon, Form IVb, Ross House. [23] SUSPENSE The clock ticked on witJi ominous sound; She heard outside a yowling hound; The end was drawing near. Her brow was wet; she held her breath; The room was quiet, quiet as death. Her hands were cold; her eyes did blur, She wished to move, but dared not stir. Then all at once, in a voice so thin. The dread call came, " Please go right in; Your turn, the dentist ' s here " . HE BALCONY of our house in Cairo was long — the whole length of seven rooms Jl of the apartment. On a cool morning in spring, I would stand on this balcony and look across at one famous historic place after another. To the north lies Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. This used to be an oasis in the desert, and was bought by a Belgian baron who built many beautiful houses, until today Heliopolis is a lovely city, with gardens, clubs, cinemas, and swimming pools. Forming a semi-circle around Cairo are the Mokkattam Hills which literally divide " the desert from the sown " . On one side is barren land with miles and miles of sand, and on the other, the River Nile. Sometimes the sand from the hills is blown into your house and gets into everything. A sandstorm is a dreadful thing. The Monastery, which I can see as well, is one of the little-known beauty spots of Cairo. To get to it you must go through the dirtiest and noisiest part of the city. Tram cars clang, little ragamuffins jump on your car, and old people get in your way and are nearly run over. There are donkey carts, with the drivers cursing and swearing, and games of football going on in the middle of the main street, while the klaxon of your own car is continually blowing. Then turning round a narrow corner, you see a garden hanging on the face of the Mokkattam Hills. You climb one hundred steps and come to a big wooden door. Your knock is answered almost immediately, because the monks have watched you coming up. " Greetings, greetings, my ladies and gentlemen. The blessing of Allah be upon you. " These are Albanian monks of the Moslem faith, but they are a celibate sect. This is unusual, as the Moslems do not believe in celibacy. Peace, unbelievable peace, reigns at this four hundred year old monastery. Everything is so quiet, you can hardly believe that you are near the noisiest part of Cairo. The monks speak Greek, Turkish, and Arabic. As they depend on charity for their living, we used always to take them a small hamper of provisions, as well as leaving a little gift on the old " Bishop ' s " table. The mosque of the monastery is very unusual. It is in a deep cave, which also serves as the burying place of the monks. One part of the monastery caves was used by Napoleon ' s army as a powder dump. Evidently an explosion look |)lace llien , forming a huge hole through which you get a most beautiful view of nearly all (]airo. [24] The Citadel, which is the mosque of Mohammed Aly, has two thin tall minarets which can be seen for miles, when they are lit up with a circle of lights at the big feast of Ramedan. The mosque is magnificent, and the whole floor is covered with one tremendous carpet. We, the infidels, cannot go into the mosque unless our shoes are covered in sheepskin slippers. Mohammed Aly the Great, the founder of the present dynasty, built his palaces at the top of the Mokkattam Hills, and the whole place is known as the Citadel. The British since they occupied Egypt have used the Citadel partly as a barracks and partly as a detention place for soldiers serving sentences for any crime. The actual living quarters, or palace, now serving only as show pieces for tourists, are very shabby and dilapidated, but the " Mameluke ' s Leap " is still the same as it was in 1811, when the Mamelukes tried to escape from their Turkish murderers. They jumped over the steep side of the cliflf, but they and their horses were killed. I can also see the Pyramids of Ghizeh, a truly wondrous sight, which has been described by better writers than I. The Sphinx with her battered nose cannot be seen properly, because since 1939 she has been covered with sand bags to protect her against air-raids. From my balcony I can see the sun shining on the broad, deep, grey water of the Nile as it flows down on its journey from Abyssinia. There are houseboats moored along the edges, and lovely houses along its banks, as well as the big Kasr el Aini Hospital gleaming white and red, the unpretentious British Embassy in Garden City, and the Semiramis Hotel, scene of bygone splendour (at present used as British Army Head- quarters, and smelling of disinfectant). Sacred ibis, flying to roost on the trees along the banks of this river, make the trees look white. What a view! What strange sight, sounds, and smells! I look back upon those days and think, " What an education I got from you, my old balcony! Thank you! " Ruth Woodman, Form IVb, Fairley House. DOW THE LANE Down the lane I wander; Bushes line the sides; Roses, and honeysuckle Nod in the breeze that glides Down from the heathered hills, Down from the mountains blue. Hiding amongst the sinking clouds, Then bursting out at you. Down the lane I wander; The sun shines on my head; I pick a strawberry sometimes. Rich, and ripe, and red. I see a lake below me, A white-sailed sailboat too; On the shore an aged fisherman. Sits with cap askew. Down the lane I wander. Above me a robin sings. Flitting around in the tree tops; And now a churchbell rings. But the sun is fast in setting. The sky burns red, then dark ; And all must home to bed and sleep — To hear the first note of the lark. Barbara Henshaw, Form Va, Gumming House. [25] THE TOY SHOP WINDOW GROUP of cold, shivering people had gatliered outside a small toy shop on a raw, 1 Vwet morning. At a glance, one could not tell what the centre of interest was, hut on looking closer, it appeared that something had broken the window of the shop. A delivery boy sauntered up, mildly interested. " What was it, mister? " he inquired of a bystander. " Oh, a car, laddie. It slipped and smashed the window. Nobody hurt, fortunately, " he answered good-naturedly. The people began to move off, having satisfied their curiosity. Two people remain- ed, a young man and woman, apparently husband and wife. " Well, Jean, " said he, " that is the end of that window; I am afraid we shall have to buy another, for our shop ' s wort h nothing without a window. Fortunately, we ' ve enough money. What ' s wrong? Don ' t you want to spend money on another window? " " Oh yes! We must have a new window, Jock. But I hate to see that window gone. It has been here for so long; I ' m sure the shop won ' t ever be the same, " she said sadly. " Silly! All windows are the same! You ' re right about it having been in a long time ! It has lasted remarkably well, I must say, " he answered. The two entered the shop to clean up the debris. In a little while the young woman sat up and thoughtfully regarded the shop with its broken window. Jock was right; the window had lasted a remarkably long time. Jean remembered the first time she had seen the window. She had just finished school and was looking for a job. She had got it here at the toy shop. She had liked old Mr. Murray, Jock ' s father; she had liked Jock and his sister Lorna. But Jock and Lorna weren ' t helping in the shop much; he was at college and she was married. Within a year ' s time she had found a better position at a large store, and being ambitious, she took it. Mr. Murray had said he could get another girl to work. A few months brought about great changes. Old Mr. Murray died. Jock left college to keep up the shop, but in a little while he sold it, and signed up in the navy. Lorna couldn ' t keep the shop; she had her children to look after; but nobody had told Jean about any of this, and she continued working in a large store, for a good salary. Then came worse times for her. The shop in which she was working did not need her, so she was out of work, but had enough money. She revisited the old toy shop, expecting to find it as usual, but the window was dusty and grimy, and to her surprise, there was a large " FOR SALE " sign displayed. She entered, using her old key, and set about putting the place to rights. Soon afterward, she bought the shop and by hard work and careful saving, managed to make it pay. Then Jock returned, and naturally visited the old shop to see how it was going, and to see if it was for sale, for he thought he might buy it again and set up the trade his father had started — making and selling toys. He was surprised and happy to find the window clean and shining, some toys on display, and, wonder of wonders — Jean behind llio counter. She told him that she had hired a man to make the toys, and the business was going very well. Another year passed, and more changes took place. Jock wasn ' t in the Navy any- more; he had n sigiUMl and he and Joan were married. The business was fine; the shop [26] window was always full of toys, and so it had continued until this morning, when the beautiful window was broken. Oh, well, she thought, it certainly had a long life, that window. Maybe it was a long enough life for any window. It had seen much in its time, and now it was finished. " Hey Jeanie, wake up and do some work! Are you asleep or what? " Jock gave her a nudge. " Oh, no, I ' m just thinking. I declare! You ' ve done most of the work! " she exclaimed. " Yes, I have. Now get up. We ' re going out to celebrate. You forget the window, or else — ! " he threatened. In a few minutes they had gone, both happy and excited. The shop, unlighted, looked rather forlorn with a large gap in the window. Do windows ever feel sad? Nobody can tell bow that window felt, for windows, like many things, never tell their secrets! Nancy Inglis, Form IVa, Gumming House. THE SEA ' S SECRETS O little pearly shell beside the sea What wondrous secrets you could tell to me. Under calm billows what lies below? What happens beneath when the stormy winds blow? Are there pirates ' hoards of jewels and gold Beside the ruined galley of old? Does old Father Neptune ride below? Does he ride with the current steady and slow? Are sawfish his coachmen, his footmen whales? Are there mermaids and mermen with scaly tails? Do you have parties and a wonderful time With shells for plates and seaweedy slime? Do the nymphs and sprites come and visit you then With water babies and coral men? And then at night do you play on the buoy And laugh and jump and splash for joy? Then with the waves do you gently flow Down to your shimmering home below? But the little shell won ' t answer me. These are secrets only for folk of the sea. Vivian Pennington, Form IIIb, Fairley House. [27] LES ROUTES DE MON PAYS Les routes de mon pays Sont blanches et jolies. Par grand ' routes ou par sentiers J ' aime a me promener, Cueillant les primeroses Aux robes de soleil, Les coquelicots couleur vermeil.

[2«| QUAND JE SUIS TRISTE QUAND je suis triste, j ' ai envie de faire une promenade dans la foret ou je prefere Tester chez moi avec un bon livre. Dans la foret, j ' oublie toutes mes peines et je regarde les belles choses que Dieu a creees, quand je marche. J ' aime beaucoup entendre le bruit des petites branches et les oiseaux qui chantent dans les arbres. II est presque impossible de decrire la beaute de la foret en automne. J ' aime aussi les jours de pluie. Je les aime mieux quand je peux rester chez moi avec un livre interessant. C ' est un jour lugubre qui vous endort. II fait bon ecouter la pluie tomber a verse sur le toit. Dehors, le ciel est convert et I ' atmosphere est lourde. Les arbres, les fleurs et le gazon sont verts et frais.

Le jardin zoologique est tres grand et la demeurent beaucoup d ' animaux differents. Dans une maison il y a des singes de toutes sortes. Un singe portait son enfant sur son dos. Dans une cage un grand singe a chasse un petit singe vert autour de toute la cage. Dans un etang il y a des alligators, des lezards et des tortues. J ' aime les tortues mais je n ' aime pas les deux autres animaux. II y a des poneys que les petits enfants montent. Les ours ont la plus jolie cage de tous les animaux. Dans chaque cage il y a deux ours. Chaque cage a une caverne de roches et une mare pour nager. Dans le jardin zoolo- gique de New York il y a quatre ours blancs, deux ours noirs et deux ours Asiatiques; ils sont les plus beaux. II y a aussi une maison oil demeurent les oiseaux de toutes couleurs et de toutes sortes de tout le monde. Le jardin a aussi des elephants, des girafes, des hippopotames, deux jolis phoques (un s ' appelle Nemphar II), des lions et beaucoup d ' autres animaux. Chaque fois que je vais a New York je visite le jardin zoologique parce que j ' aime beaucoup voir les animaux curieux. Nora Corley, Form Va, Barclay House. LA NUIT A LA CAMPAGNE Le soleil s ' est couche, c ' est la fin du jour, Les petits oiseaux sont muets et tranquilles; Une brise douce agite les feuilles, Et on voit des etoiles brillantes dans la ville. La lumiere de la hine fait des ombres sur la terre Son image se reflete dans I ' eau C ' est tout a fait different des bruits de la ville, C ' est comme la paix, tout est si doux et si beau. Giana Lyman, Form IVb, Ross House. [29] MON CHIEN 01, J ' AI un petit chien. II s ' appelle Cito. II n ' aime pas les chats, lee ecureuilg, et leg pigeons. Et il fait mourir tous les chats qu ' il peut. Une fois, Cito a joue avec une autre chien qui s ' appelle Axel. lis ont fait une longue promenade dans la foret. Axel aime les chats et les ecureuils. Quand ils ont marclx ' t une demi-heure ils voient une petite table avec une ecureuil et un pigeon et une petite, petite chatte qui mangent quelques fruits. Cito commence de parler a I ' autre chien: — Regardez cette belle petite chatte, je vais la tuer. Axel repond: — Non, non tu vas laisser tous les animaux tranquilles. Tout a coup la chatte leve la tete et elle voit deux grands chiens, elle crie a ses amis: — Regardez les beaux chiens! Tous les arbres de la foret ont des yeux, des oreilles et chacun a une bouche. lis parlent aux petits animaux et disent: — Le chien veut te tuer, fais attention! — Merci beaucoup, mes beaux arbres, dit la chatte: — Mais je vais leur parler. Venez ici, mes grands chiens. Je veux faire votre connaissance. Axel dit tout de suite: — Mais oui, je desire faire votre connaissance aussi ma petite chatte, mais mon ami n ' aime pas les animaux comme vous et vos amis car il ne les con- nait pas. La chatte et I ' ecureuil pensent quelques minutes mais le pigeon parle le premier: — Cito, mes amis et moi, nous desirous que vous aimiez et aidiez tous les animaux qui en ont besoin. Mais comme vous aimez les animaux, ils ne vous font pas mal. lis vous font mal quand vous leur faites mal. — Merci mes amis, dit Cito. Je vais vous voir souvent mais maintenant Axel et moi nous devons rentrer. Tous les animaux disent: — Au revoir, au revoir! Maintenant Cito aime tous les animaux et ils I ' aiment aussi.

THE ADVENTURES OF SKIPPY AND TEDDY SKIPPY was a little red-haired spaniel. He was very often getting into mischief and longed for adventure. One day as he was sitting on the front door step, his next-door neighbour, Teddy, came strutting by. " Hello " , said Skippy. " Hi, " said Teddy. " Where are you going, Teddy? " " I ' m running away. It ' s no fun sitting on a blue silk cushion all the time, I want to go out into the world and see what I can see. Why don ' t you come with me, Skippy? " " Well, " said Skippy a little doubtfully, " I ' d like to, but I don ' t think my mistress would like it very much, but I guess I will anyway, I can easily come back again, " [31] So off they went, talking about wliat they would do and the lovely juicy honeti they would find that people had very carelessly thrown out in their hack yards. They had gone a little way wh- n tliey found tlieniKclves in tlie downtown section. Boys threw stones at them and little girls laughed at them. Later on they got to the lumber yards down by the tracks. It was getting quite dark, and all the men at the lumber yard were closing up. Teddy and Skippy were very tired after their long walk, so they got behind some boards and went to sleep. It was quite cold, but they slept soundly till morning. They woke up and looked around wondering where they were. Then they remem- bered that they had run away from home. " Oh, look ! " exclaimed Teddy. " What lovely, crisp, soda biscuits. " Quickly they ran over to what they thought to be soda biscuits, but when they got there, to their horror, they were only slats of wood. They looked around to see if they could find anything to eat or drink. But they could only find wood and sawdust. Sud- denly they heard a terrible noise that made them shiver with fright. It sounded like a gigantic bee Zzzzz -zz- zzzz ! It went on and on, getting louder all the time. Teddy and Skippy decided they had had enough adventure. It was two very hungry, bedraggled, little dogs who presented themselves to their mistresses late that afternoon. They were very happy to snuggle down on their cushions, and they said that they would never leave home again. Eve Gordon, Form Upper I. Snowflakes are falling; Winter is here. The north wind blows And Christmas is near. WINTER I ' m snug in my bed And dreaming sweet dreams. My room is all filled With fairies it seems. The treetops glisten With icicles bright; The moon is shining; ' Tis a beautiful night. But when morning comes The fairies have gone, And I see a white carpet Of snow on the lawn. Bakbaka Magor, Form II, Ross House. AUTUMN AUTUMN is one of the most beautiful seasons, with all the green leaves turning red and yellow and the cool winds whistling by, blowing the fallen leaves over the bare fields. In the apple orchards, men and children climb ladders to pick the apples, and small children gather the fallen leaves and pile them up to jump in them. Farmers gather wheat and barley and store them for the coming winter. Those who have worked hard all Spring and Summer are rewarded in Autumn with good crops. Squirrels and chipmunks store the nuts in holes and chatter with their cheeks bulg- ing with nuts, when somebody passes by. The other animals, such as the rabbit and beaver, get ready to sleep all winter, and the birds leave in flocks, for the south, before it gets too cold. One morning the river, which runs in the forest, wakes up and finds itself covered with a blanket of mist, its water flowing slowly. The stream is already half frozen by the cold autumn nights. The drifting whirling waters sing no more among the stones. The river starts already to fall asleep in the cold of winter. Helene Jaccard, Form Upper II, Barclay House.

MY FRIENDS, THE RITTERS We had been in Nassau a short time when we met some German refugees, Fritz and Ida Ritter. Mr. Ritter had been an actor in Vienna, and Mrs. Ritter a painter in Berlin. They were married and living in Berlin when the Nazis began persecuting them. They escaped through Spain and finally reached England where friends got them on a boat which they hoped would take them to America, but a law was passed before they arrived, and they had to stay in the Bahamas for three years. At first they were terribly poor and lived in a mulatto ' s cabin. The authorities were not kind to them and made them stay in their room after seven o ' clock in the evening. [33] Then the Catholic hishop heard ahout them and came to see them. He said they could move into the visitin}; priest ' s little house in his {garden. Tl)en they were happy. This little house was clean, altliough small, and without screens, hut Mrs. Ritter had a studio. It did not have much furniture but looked very nice with flowers in hig shells. W along the wall stood plaster saints and animals from all the churches of the Island. Mrs. Ritter mended them and painted them to look like new. Mr. Ritter was a very clever man. He got work teaching Latin to boys and girls who were coming to McGill. Someone gave them a big brown dog called Rover. They made a vegetable garden and got a little white kid which they called Clarissa. Mrs. Ritter painted my portrait, and with the money, they bought a radio, which pleased them very much. They often came to our house for supper, and sometimes Mr. Ritter sang German songs and recited poetry. I liked best to hear him recite " The Raven " . They tried very hard all the time to get to America but could not. Rover died, and their radio was stolen, which made them sad. Then, at last, they had some luck. The Duchess of Windsor heard that Mrs. Ritter was an artist, and asked her to come to Government house and paint a picture. She was so pleased with it that she used it as her Christmas card. The Duke was pleased also and helped them to get to America. Now they are happy in New York where they have work and friends. Linda Jackson, Form Upper II, Barclay House. AN AUTUMN PRAYER We thank thee heavenly Father, For the autumn bright and gay. That brings its coloured glory When the summer ' s passed away. The days bring golden harvest. The sunshine, and the rain. The birds are flying southward When the autumn comes again. The gold and scarlet maples Against the autumn sky. Bring a thrill of courage To every passer-by. We thank thee for the autumn. We thank thee for the Spring, We thank thee, O our Father, For these and everything. MiNA Jean Webster, Form Upper II, Ross House. 1.34] ART This year the Art Classes have been very busy working on a varied program. All have tried hard during the year and the Studio is the scene of many interesting projects. The Extra Art Class on Thursday afternoon intends to finish the last two murals of a series to be sent to the Iverley Nursery. These depict many favourite nursery rhymes and are greatly enjoyed by all, including those who have painted them. The backdrop for the Carol Festival this year was the outside of a Gothic Church. This was painted by the girls of Fourth Form. The monks, who read passages of Scripture, and the small groups of medieval people, presented a very effective picture. Form Upper II has recently finished a " Joseph in Egypt " series which portrays the early life in Egypt. The stage sets designed by the Fifth Form depict many stories including Fairy Tales and History, and the work on them has been both interesting and instructive. All these activities could not have been possible without the untiring efforts of Miss Jaques, and it is with deepest appreciation that we thank her for her excellent guidance throughout the year. Alexa Macleod, Form VI, Cumming House. [35] HOUSE NEWS 5. 1944-1945 BARCLAY This year the standard of Barclay House has lowered considerably, and from being very near the top in the last three years, Barclay is now in last place. However, we wish to extend our sin- cere thanks to those members who have been so helpful and especially the par- ticipants in the Dramatic Competition. We wish too, to express a special word of thanks to Mrs. Leonard, whose coun- sel has been very much appreciated throughout the year. Regular work has been done by the Barclay girls for the Red Cross, and their enthusiasm in this field is note- worthy. Barclay House is well represent- ed on the school basketball teams, hav- ing Janice Jacques and Lois Ohman on the first team, and Elizabeth Scrimger and Barbara Watson on the second. Special mention should be made of Joan Macklaier, who has become one of the year ' s outstanding young skiers and a valuable member of " Traf ' s " Ski Team. The Inter-House basketball games and the track meet are yet to come, and we are looking forward to them with pleasure. Those events usually provide Barclay with a few extra points, as well as plenty of fun. Our best wishes to those who will lead the house next year. After you have come and seen — we sincerely hope Barc- lay will conquer! ANN TAYLOR, LOIS OHMAN, Heads of the House. GUMMING This year- comparatively few new girls have been added to our house, as many of our old friends remained with us. However, these few have been hearti- ily welcome, and we all appreciate the friendliness (and points) which their arrival has caused. The major event of our first term was the Dramatic Competition. Everyone worked desperately, if somewhat hec- tically, to make our act a success. As a result we came third, but a close third, and won thirty-eight points. We would like to thank in particular Jean Holmes, who has gained the high- est number of points to date, with Nancy Inglis stepping right on her heels, and Isobel Thow, who has also given us a substantial boost. Annette Baird and Mary Munroe are both on the school ' s first basketball team, and Barbara Little represents Cumming on the second. Margaret For- syth has played in two matches and was also on the tennis team in the autumn. Although bad marks have been only too frequent, we have improved in the course of the year, and we are hoping that our total will not be the lowest. Perhaps next year Cumming will be able to reach even greater heights. We have our hopes pinned on you, Cumming, so sro ahead and do your best, and we will cheer you on. MARY MUNROE, ANNETTE BAIRD, Heads of the House. [36] FAIRLEY " Service before self. " This year Fairley House lost some very valuable members, but we would like to welcome all the newcomers who have taken their place and have already proven themselves to be worthy mem- bers of our House. The Dramatic Competition was enter- ed into very enthusiastically. This year each house produced an act from Shakes- peare ' s " Twelfth Night. " We would like to thank the members of the cast, Gwen Williams, the director, and all the other girls through whose efforts Fairley House emerged victorious. We would also like to congratulate Ross House which came second by a very small margin. On the Basketball Team we were re- presented by Claire Johnson, Gwen Wil- liams, Barbara Brown, Elizabeth Atkin- son, and Marilyn Spencer, and on the Tennis Team by Denys Clarke, Claire Johnson, and Betty MacDonald. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Miss MacGachen for her in- valuable help, to our Red Cross Repre- sentative, Denys Clarke, and our Fifth Form Representative, Marilyn Spencer. Fairley House has been in the lead so far this year and special mention must be made of Helen Ayer, Reni Roberts, Jennifer Thomas, Dorothy Weldon, De- nys Clarke, and Patricia Witherow for their splendid work. To those who will have to carry on we say, " Keep up the good work, Fairley! " BARBARA BROWN, ELIZABETH ATKINSON, Heads of the House. ROSS All the members of Ross House have been working with enthusiasm this year, thus upholding our tradition. We wel- comed seventeen new girls into the House, who have plunged right into the spirit of things and have been a great addition in all our concerted efforts. In the Dramatic Competition we came second, thanks to all the girls who helped so willingly. Some points were gained in the General Knowledge Test, and by reading. Ross House has also been very active in the Red Cross, with Denise Craig as our representative on the Red Cross Committee. In the field of sports there have as yet been no competitions, but we look for- ward to the Inter-House basketball matches, and to Field Day. Academical- ly, Ross has always striven to maintain a high standard, and we hope that our standard will continue to rise through the efforts of our members. Miss Harvie is our new House Mis- tress, and we owe her many thanks for the time and thought she has spent on the House, and for her sage counsel and advice. We wish the members of Ross House all success and luck in the coming years, and feel sure that they will continue to live up to our motto " Suaviter in more, Fortiter in re. " ELIZABETH BROW, JOAN THACKRAY, Heads of the House. [3 ' ;7] LIBRARY The Library has been constantly used this year and the committee has been kept extremely busy. Each member o f the committee is responsible for keeping track of the books taken out by her classmates and for collecting fines when necessary. The senior members also help in checking books and keeping the shelves in order, while the juniors help to look after the magazines and keep the room tidy. Money for library expenses has been raised in three ways during the past year. Last May, instead of the usual mission collection, a collection was taken for the Librar ' , which totalled about $40. With this we bought twenty-two books, mainly fiction, both senior and junior, and also one or two biographies, several geography and travel books, and one art book. We also decided that money received for second-hand books sold by the School should be turned over to the Library Fund. This amounted to about S36, and this, added to the $10 in fines for overdue books, has paid for our magazine subscriptions and general expenses In addition to the books we have bought, we have had so many donations that our shelves are overflowing. Among the members of the Staff and girls who have given us books are Miss Foster, Miss Bedford- J ones. Mile. Juge, Miss Randall, Mrs. Irwin, Miss Rushton, Sally Acland, Christine Maitland, Vivian Pennington, Joan Bayer, Lucinda McCrea, Margaret Wheler and Barbara Fisk. To these and other friends we extend our warmest thanks.

Then a sigh of relief and gratitude is uttered by the weary Mission Representative. These Friday morning donations have this year been a great success, and we have been able to con- tribute to the usual organizations as well as supplying a snow-suit, skirt, shoes, and slip- pers for a young English child.

[39] RED CROSS This year our Red Cross work has heen under the supervision of Miss Stansfield, who has taken Miss Strawhridge ' s place as Red Cross Director, Last October, Mrs. Shaw, head of the Junior Red Cross in Montreal, gave us an enlightening talk, and presented the school with a five-year membership certificate. At the beginning of the year, we furnished and made an outfit for a three-year-old child. This was sent to England for an air-raid victim. As well as this, all the girls have been knitting and sewing very industriously, both for the forces and for civilians, and so far we have sent in one large carton of work which was on display in the library in January. As in former years, we bought toys at Christmas for a school in Minodoka in which Miss Hasell is interested. The Juniors have also been doing their share, and have made nearly a dozen scrap- books and collected over two thousand Christmas cards. We have collected and sold envelopes with interesting stamps on them, and in this way have made $5.00. Ordinary stamps we send to the Red Cross, who sell them by the pound. Recently, during Red Cross week, two repatriated prisoners of war who had been shot down over Germany told us of some of their experiences, and of the marvellous work that the Red Cross does for prisoners in Germany. Their visit gave such an im- petus to our efforts that our Red Cross Campaign collection reached a grand total of $330. Special commendation goes to Form VI who cleaned shoes, and to Form Vb who sold sandwiches in aid of this cause. We would like to thank all the girls for doing such splendid work and to urge them to keep it up — the Red Cross needs help more than ever, now.

There have been two enrollments. At the end of the Summer Term, we participated in the Central District Competi- tion at the Guide Camping ground on the bank of the Back River at Cartierville. It was a lovely day and we very proudly carried off the Cup for the first time in our history! Three Guides: Margaret Racey, Joan Bayer, and Jean Holmes, have been awarded First Class Badges, and also Little House Emblems. Several other badges have been pass- ed, including Second Class Badges and the Hostess Badge, which was won by the whole Company when we entertained the Staff, Boarders, and Old Guides at a Valentine Tea Party with games. This was a great success. Other badges will be tried for next term. Three Guides went to the Girl Guide Camp at Morin Heights and thoroughly en- joyed themselves. We hope to have several applicants this summer. The Company made an attractive baby ' s layette which was shown with the work of the other Central District Companies at the Central District Exhibition of " Guide Gift to Britain " articles, in the window of Quebec Hydro last May. The girls are working now for this year ' s " Gift " which will afterwards be sent, as usual, to the bombed-out children in England. Juanita Cronyn, Captain THE HOUSE DRAMATIC COMPETITION This year the House Dramatic Competition took place during the first term, and the play that was acted was " Twelfth Night " by Shakespeare. Each house did one act, except for Ross House which did the two shorter last acts of the play. We were for- tunate in being able to have Mrs. Sadler as our judge of the competition. Act One was produced by Barclay House. The first actors in a play usually have difficulty in obtaining their audience ' s interest, but Barclay succeeded very well. The prologue was read clearly, and the actors, especially Adelia Fairweather as Sir Toby and Lois Ohman as Viola, acted their parts with ease and ability. Cumming House gave the Second Act, which proved very amusing. Margaret For- syth, Annette Baird, and Elizabeth Brown as Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the Clown were enjoyed by everyone. Fairley House showed originality in its production of Act Three by seating two of its members as spectators on the edge of the stage, following an old theatrical con- vention. These extras supported the players well when one of the actors failed to appear. [41] Betty Macdoiiald as Sir ' I ' oljy and Barbara Brown a;; Malvolio oJiaracterized llieir parts excellently and worked well as a team. Ross House gave the last two acts. Their costumes arid actors were weiJ chosen, with Elizabeth Hay as Olivia, Elizabeth Brow as the Duke, and Jan Henry as the comical clown. Joan Thackray and Denise ( raig were convincing as twins with their identical costumes and make-up. " Twelfth Night " was produced very successfully by all four houses. Points were given for the acting of each house, which put Fairley first, with Ross running a very close second, then (humming and Barclay. As in the other Dramatic Competitions, everyone enjoyed acting and producing " Twelfth Night, " and we think the competition was one of the best we have put on. Helen Ayer, Form Va, Fairley House. CAROL SERVICE IN MEDIEVAL SETTING Montreal, December 20th. 1944. Against a backdrop portraying the exterior of a medieval church, the girls of Trafalgar School held their annual Carol Service last evening. The Service opened with a pantomine depicting the gathering of a group of fif- teenth century people for a midnight service on Christmas Eve. Then from behind the scene came the ringing notes of a bell chiming the midnight hour. Other bells broke in and several (carols were rung. The carols w re condu(!ted by Mr. Chadwick. Among them was one which the Nuns of Chester sang as ihey walked in the streets of old England. Several well-known carols such as " Unlo Us A Boy is Born " and " While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks " were [42;i sung. There were too a number of otliers not so well-known, among them a lullaby. In the intervals between the carols, two girls, dressed as monks in black habits and standing in pulpits against the background, read the passages from the Bible which tell the Christmas Story. As the last notes of " O Come All Ye Faithful " rang out, the bells began again and the girls filed slowly out, bringing a beautiful and enjoyable Carol Service to an end.

THE SIXTH FORM DANCE Preceded by a great deal of excitement, our graduation dance took place on the evening of January 26th in the school gymnasium. For the past three years the Old Girls ' Association has very kindly undertaken to give the graduating class a dance, which takes place about this time every year. This year, as last, the girls all wore long dresses, and it is amazing how different we all looked from our usual " everyday " selves. Before the dance itself began, everyone was invited to attend a punch party, and afterwards the couples went to the various dinners which were held. Tlie dance began at nine o ' clock. The hall was decorated in blue and white crepe I)aper and dimly lighted throughout the evening. The guests were welcomed at the door by Miss Foster and Miss Cronyn, who is President of the Old Girls ' Association this year. When it was time to serve refreshments, some of the old girls acted as waitresses, and llieir trouble was well rewarded by the fact that everyone certainly seemed to enjoy it all very much. ' I ' lic dance broke u|) puiictiudly at one o ' clock, after a most enjoyable evening. I would like lo lake lliis o|)porlunity to thank all the members of the Old Girls ' AHHocialioii who helped wilh the dance, and everyone else who so kindly went to a great deal of Irouhic lo make lliis niglil one which we shall all remember for a long time.

Form VIa won the Senior Shield, and their Captain, Peggy-Jean Ross, was also awarded the Strathcona Shield for the best Gymnastic Officer. Form Va came second, with Barbara Brown and Claire Johnson as officers. Form Upper II under Joyce Schofield won the Junior Shield. MAY: FIELD DAY. The annual " Traf " Field Day was held at the Molson Stadium and in spite of extremely cold weather, girls entered enthusiastically into the various races. Form Va won the Senior Relay Race, and Form Upper II won the Junior. Barbara Brown scored the highest number of points in the Senior Group, Claire Johnson in the Intermediate, and Margo Cronyn in the Junior. Cumming led the Houses with a total of 41 points, while Fairley came second with 39, Barclay third with 36 and Ross fourth with 27. The Junior Field Day held in the School Garden was also a great success. We all look forward to Field Day as it is one of the most exciting events in the School Year. MAY: SCHOOL VERSUS STAFF TENNIS MATCH. The Tennis Match against the Staff is always an exciting event. As visual, the Staff Team, consisting this year of Miss Box, Miss Harvie, Mademoiselle Royer, and Miss Strawbridge, succeeded in defeating the School Team. JUNE 9: SCHOOL CLOSING. The Stocking Cup, presented to the Form that has shown the most improvement in Gym, was given to Form Va. The winner of the Inter-Form Basketball Shield was also Form Va. OCT. 7: TENNIS MATCH. Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School succeeded in defeating " Traf " in tennis, thus winning the cup. Playing for the " Traf " Team were Betty Macdonald, Denys Clarke, Margaret Forsyth, and Claire Johnson, NOV. 13 — 3.30 P.M. The first basketball game of the season was a home game against Weston, plaved at the Y.W.C.A. Trafalgar First Team defeated Weston First Team 20-15. The Second Team defeated Weston Second Team 18-9. [55] NOV. 30 — 2.45 P.M. In The Study home game played at tlie Y.M.( .A. " Traf " was again victorious, defeating The Study First Team 37-29, and the Second Team 23-9. DEC. 6 — 3.30 P.M. The first game against Miss Edgar ' s was played at the Y.W.C.A. Trafalgar First Team was defeated by Miss Edgar ' s, 28-17, but the " Traf Second Team continued its record by defeating Miss Edgar ' s Second Team, 30-2. JAN. 29 — 3.30 P.M. The first game of the Second Term was played against Miss Edgar ' s at the Y.W.C.A., and it was, perhaps, the most exciting game of the season. " Trafg " First Team finally defeated Miss Edgar ' s by 20-19, making it necessary to play a final game. " Traf ' s " Second Team won by 24-6. FEB. 14 — 2.45 P.M. The second game against Weston was played at the M.A.A.A., and our Second Team was defeated for its first time, with a score of 9-18. The First Team won by 29-20. FEB. 19 — 3.30 P.M. At the Y.M.C.A. playing against The Study, " Traf " was victorious in both games. The First Team score being 43-32, and the Second, 14-10. Janice Jaques played outstandingly in this match, with 13 baskets to her credit. MARCH 15 — 3.30 P.M. The final Second Team Game of the season was played between Weston and Trafalgar at the Y.M.C.A. After an exciting game, the final score was tied 11-11, so it was decided that rather than play another game, Trafalgar and Weston schools would jointly own the Second Team Cup for 1944-45. THE SKI MEET N SATURDAY, March 17th, we all collected at Windsor Station, and then proceeded on our way " Up North " to St. Sauveur, for the Interscholastic Ski Meet. It was very late in the season and the snow was soft and slushy, but still the Meet was a great success. There were two teams, a Senior and a Junior, from each school with six girls on each, of which the best four were taken. On " Traf ' s " Senior Team were Betty Sutherland, Joan Macklaier, Nancy Bruneau, Denise Craig, Margaret Patterson, and Elizabeth Scrimger; on the Junior, Daphne Andrews, Elizabeth Stairs, Patricia Taylor, Betty Hawthorn, Giana Lyman, and Catharine Chadwick. The Slalom and Downhill were alternated between the two teams, the Seniors racing the Molson ' s Downhill first, while the Juniors slalomed down Belvedere Hill. Many spills were taken on both. After we had finished racing, we went over to the Penguin Club House and ate our liin ;hcH while we waited to hear the results. WcHlmounI High School again won the shield, and we extend our heartiest con- gratulations lo ihem. They won with a combined time of 10:09.0; The Study came Hccftnd, Willi I 1 :49.6; and " Traf " came third with 11:53.9. [56] The Study led the Junior division with a time of 11:05.4; Westmount High was second, and " Traf " again came third with 14:53.3. The Senior Combined was won by Joan Ferrabee of Westmount, Betty Sutherland came fourth, and Joan Macklaier fifth. The Junior was won by Diane Lillie, and Elizabeth Stairs ranked fifth. When we had heard the results, we put our ski-boots on again and ran through pouring rain for the train. We know how hard it was for the Penguins to run the races, and to find the time for tlvem; we would like to thank them very much for all their work; we are very grateful indeed. Elizabeth Scrimger, Form Vb, Barclay House. THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION ONE OF the most successful events of the school year was held on the afternoon of Thursday, March 8th, and the evening of Friday, March 9tli, when large and enthusiastic audiences attended both performances of the Gymnastic Demonstration. The special classes in vaulting, rope-climbing, and dancing were all highlights and relieved the precision of the drill and marching. The Juniors as usual delighted the audience with their well-performed exercises. Form Two bounced balls gracefully and effectively and the dancing of Form Upper Two was much admired. The Third and Sixth Forms should be congratulated respectively on their skipping which they carried out with precision and beauty, and their impressive cymbal drill. The Fifth Forms made two appearances: they opened the program with a series of exercises and later executed a most enjoyable balance drill. The Fourth Forms concluded the evening with red and blue torchlight marchin g, in which they cleverly spelled out " Traf. " On Thursday afternoon the " Dem. " was concluded with a short talk by the Rev. Mr. Temple, and on Friday evening by Colonel Harkness, who complimented Miss Box on the excellent quality of the display. Mrs. Williams very kindly presented the " G " badges and stars to the girls who had attained a high standard in gymnastic work during the year. When we had expressed our thanks to Miss Box for the fine training she had given to us and to Miss Wayland for her expert accompanying on the piano, another " Gym Dem " , to our great regret, was over. Elizabeth Atkinson, Form VI, Fairley House. [57] BOARDERS " SATURDAYS " ON SATURDAYS at dinner time this is what you hear, " It ' s ten to two and Aunt Emily said she would be here at two; the maids are only clearing away the first course. Oh, hurry up, for goodness ' sake ! ! " Eventually dinner is over, and there is a mad rush for the Study where Mary fthe Head of the House) arrives with the mail. There are shouts of surprise and groans of dismay, as Mary gives it out. All rush to their rooms and start to put on their hats and coats, yelling that they can ' t find their mitt or asking someone to lend them a bobby pin. Meanwhile the juniors who stay in are rushing up and down telling so and so that she is called for, and " bagsing " to call the next person. At last the house is peaceful; only two or three girls remain who weren ' t asked for, so the Mistress on duty entertains them for the afternoon. At eight o ' clock, juniors start returning. They rush in with the thrilling news that their Uncle got married or that they have a new hat; everybody yells at once so nobody understands anybody. When the juniors are in bed, the seniors return and they ex- change their news in a tone that people can understand. At last all is quiet, except for the last murmur of " Golly, Saturdays are super! " But think ahead, — another week of school. Oh Dear!! Jeanne Abinett, Form HIa, Barclay House. SCHOOL FEVER [with apologies to John Masefield.) I must go back to my tunic again, to my dark blue tunic and belt. And all I ask is a short term, or else I shall sit and swell. In the warm breeze, the dry breeze, and mop my dewy brow And wonder when the lesson will end. " Miss MacGachen, may I please leave now? " I must go back to my tunic again, for the call of the warning bell Is a clear call, an urgent call, which makes us run pell-mell. And all I ' ll ask is not to be late, or else I ' ll get a detention And Lib. and Brown both wearing a frown will question my good intention. I must go back to my tunic again, to my carefree school-day life. To Miss Foster ' s way and Miss Box ' s way, which to me are the ways of strife. And all I ask is a squeakless desk and a chair that doesn ' t rattle. And I ' ll patiently wait till that future date, in June, when I face my battle. Betty Macdonald, Form VI, Fairley House. SEEING THE SIXTH FORM OFF IT IS January 26th and for the past wek or so, great preparations have been going on for tlie Sixth Form Dance and now the great hour is approaching. Not only is it an event for the Sixth Form but for the rest of the boarders also, for study is to finish at twenty to six instead of the usual quarter past. Break has begun and we, the Upper Dormers, being privileged, dash up the stairs to see the girls while the juniors form a line on the first landing to watch the debutantes make their appearance. As we approach the Upper Dormitory, shrieks and groans greet our ears. " I can ' l find the jacket to my dress and my hair won ' t curl right " — " Why does everything have to happen to me? " With these cries for help, we go to the rescue and try to do what we can. Finally the escorts arrive and the girls manage to be on time. Looking very charming in their long dresses, they file down the stairs with their coats unbuttoned (at the request of the Lower Dorm) to be greeted with many an " Oh, gee, you look nice " — " Oh-h-h I love your dress " . Out of the firing line the girls go downstairs to meet the boys, and then there is a mad rush to the Fifth Form study from where we watch them depart. Our excitement is over for a while, but the fun is just beginning for the lucky Sixth Formers. Never mind though, there is another year coming and then we will be eligible. Cynthia Lidstone, Form Va, Fairley House. RUSTY! IT WAS nearly time to go home for the Easter Holidays; Mummy and Daddy wrote to me and said that there was a surprise at home for me. About a week later I got off the train, and there was Mummy waiting for me. We drove home in a taxi, and I tried to guess what the surprise was. When we got there. Mummy had forgotten her key, so she went round to the back door. A few seconds later she opened the front door, and lying on her hand was a tiny, shiny, black-and-tan fox terrier! I asked Mummy what she called him, so she said, " I call him Rusty. " Mummy fed him on bread and milk, and when he got older she fed him on Gains dog food. Once he was so excited, that when Mummy put his food down, he dived sput- tering and snorting at the bowl and somersaulted right into it, splash ! He always gobbled his food so fast, that you could see him blow up like a balloon! We put Rusty in the back yard so he would not run away and get lost, but he dug his way under the fence. We got a long strip of cow-hide and tied his leash on to it, and hooked it on the clothes line; so he ran up and down the garden without getting out. Daddy gave Rusty a rubber bone to play with and taught him to run after it and bring it back. He also taught him to go to his basket, when he said, " Basket, Rusty, basket! " You can hide a doggy tit-bit and tell Rusty to find it, and he will. He will also jump over your hands, if you clasp them together and stand with your legs apart. Once I held my skipping rope for him to jump over, but instead of jumping over it, he tried to jump over me! He didn ' t go over, of course, but he bounced on my back! He can run up the trunks of trees and then walk on the branches! He also fetches Daddy ' s slippers for him, and once he brought mine! Rosemary Roberts, Form Upper H, Barclay House. [59] T bicycle liad a puncture so 1 perforce liad to take the tram. I embarked in town wJiere it was reasonably empty but 1 liad plenty to occupy me, for tbe conductor always walks round without holdinj on and this (our trams are open on both sides and the seats are crosswise ) appears to me as courting disaster. Incident- ally, I have never seen or heard of one falling off. All was fine till we got to Cross Roads where the market women were waiting. They screamed and argued and fought but eventually all were on, and I mean all. On my seat, which held five at a squash, seven were now seated, six of them being negro market women with at least two baskets apiece which were carefully installed round our legs. These women walk down from the country without sleeping or washing for days, so by the time they get on the tram after market, they use the most convenient thing for a pillow ; in this case for one of them it was my shoulder. By now I felt considerably squashed and hot, so I was only too glad to see my stoj approaching. A terrible thought struck me: bow was I to get off? A kind soul saw my plight and rang the bell; then, having rudely awakened my sleeping neighbour, I arose. I tripped over several baskets and trod on at least one poor innocent hen before I got to the end. Then I realized that I had come to the wrong side ; well, sooner than struggle all the way back I crawled somehow under the bar and literally fell into the street. I was quickly brought to my senses by the screeching sound of brakes being applied and I hobbled across the road narrowly missing disaster. Well, thank heavens that was over at last! But, quite seriously, it really is like that and sometimes worse. Denys Clarke, Form VI, Fairley House. m MISS STRAWBRIDGE MISS STRAWBRIDGE came to Trafalgar in September 1934 aruJ until June 1944 had charge of the Preparatory Department. A kinder, more enthusiastic teacher would be hard to find, and it is with gratitude that a succession of babies now grown to be " girls " and even " young ladies " look back upon their early days at Trafalgar under Miss Strawbridge ' s supervision. Nine of this year ' s Graduating Class made their first letters under Miss Strawbridge ' s motherly eye! Miss Strawbridge ' s work did not begin or end with the Junior School; she showed an interest in all School activities and anything in the line of music wag her particular forte. She organized and practised the School Choir, helped arrange and plan Carol Services, played accompaniments for the Gym. Demonstration and gave a helping musical hand wherever and whenever needed. During recent years. Miss Strawbridge undertook to supervise the Trafalgar Branch of the Junior Red Cross and much good work was done under her guidance. Miss Strawbridge is now at the Grenfell Mission, St. Anthony, Newfoundland. Trafalgar misses her but wishes her all the very best of luck and happiness in her new venture. L.B. MISS RANDALL IT IS with very sincere regret that the school learns of the retirement of Miss Randall after twenty-two years of devoted and faithful service. As housekeeper and matron, Miss Randall ' s duties have been many and varied, and at times very exacting. We have grown so accustomed to the smooth running of all the arrangements of the house that perhaps we did not always realize the great problems that had to be solved by Miss Randall, especially during the war years when rationing and the shortage of domestic help added such complications. But whatever the dif- ficulties behind the scenes, our meals were always beautifully prepared and served with great punctuality, whilst every other detail fitted perfectly into the pattern of school life. Besides her supervision of the house. Miss Randall has also taken a great interest in the girls, Old Girls and present, many of whom came directly under her influence. In all her dealings with them, whether the tiny tots of the kindergarten, who engaged her in conversation each morning before prayers, or senior girls who sought her advice, she showed unfailing kindness, sympathy, and real understanding. She was always anxious to do everything in her power to add to the comfort of the Resident Staff and Boarders and made them feel at home by her countless little acts of kindness. She never failed to attend any of the school functions; indeed, many social gatherings owed their success largely to her excellent organization and quiet efficiency. In saying " Good-bye " to so loyal a member of the Staff, we extend our gratitude and thanks to Miss Randall and wish her many years of good fortune and happiness. M.R. MRS. LEONARD IT IS always sad when we must bid farewell to an old and trusted friend, and we are all grieved to hear that Mrs. Leonard is retiring this year, after seventeen years of service at Trafalgar. Her wisdom and experience, her consideration and generous kindliness have en- deared her to all her colleagues, who have grown to rely on her as a counsellor and friend, a friend who never let one down. As a teacher in subjects not easy to present to young minds she is outstanding both in scholarship and lucidity of exposition; she also possessed unlimited patience, and a never-failing readiness to help all who were in difficulties. It was always a pleasure to see her in her Form room surrounded by a group of happy girls who looked and felt at home with her. She entered enthusiastically into her work as head of Barclay House, and the girls who were with her know well how much she has helped them. We all unite with affection and gratitude in wishing her a happy future in which she can enjoy her well earned rest. N.C. MISS RUSHTON WE LEARN with regret that Miss Rushton is leaving Trafalgar to return home to England, after eight years on the resident Staff as Geography mistress. During her time with us. Geography has taken a more important place in the school curriculum and is now included as one of the optional subjects for the School Certificate Examination. Miss Rushton has contributed to the School in other ways too. As a Form Mistress, she has guided and helped the Juniors by her own high standards of work and conduct. Nor has she shrunk from additional tasks. This past year she has assumed the respons- ibility of supervising all the hymn playing and music lessons. At many times she has helped in the Library and on one occasion looked after it for a month. But her interest in Trafalgar has been proved above all by the fact that she returned to us across the Atlantic even after being torpedoed on the " Athenia " . By her quiet friendliness and sense of humour, and by her unfailing patience and sympathy. Miss Rushton has endeared herself to Staff and pupils alike, and she will be missed both in the School and in the House. We all wish her every success. J.E.H. [63] OLD GIRLS PRESIDENT ' S REPORT 1944-45 As IT is too early in the year to present a full Annual Report, I will summarize the activities of the Old Girls ' Association since last Spring. At the end of the Summer Term, the Association entertained the Sixth Forms at the Annual Meeting and Dinner, held for the first time in the school gymnasium. Fol- lowing the meeting, Madame deVillavicencio, the guest speaker, gave an interesting address on her native country, Chile. A coloured film of a journey through South America brought a very pleasant evening to a close. After the summer ' s recess, as it were, activities for the 1944-45 season began with a General Meeting held in the school drawing-room in November. Committees for the ensuing year were elected. The programme for the evening was a White Elephant sale, which proved a great success, as every one co-operated in the effort and a sum of S56.00 was realized for the Scholarship Fund. The Dance for the Sixth Form took place on January 26th in the school gym- nasium, which the girls decorated in blue and white for the evening. This year, as subscription tickets were sold to every one attending the dance, it was self-supporting. Although still on a simple war-time scale, it was a success, and the girls were most appreciative. An open general meeting was held on March 26th in the school gymnasiiun, to which friends of the Association were invited. After a very short business meeting, films on Japan, Malta, and the life of Tom Thomson, in colour, were shown. The programme was well received and the audience showed its appreciation in contributing most generously to the silver collection, in aid of the Scholarship Fund, which netted the sum of $22.00. As the coloured film on the life of Tom Thomson, " West Wind " , is very attractively presented, I asked permission from Miss Foster to have a showing for the School on the last day of the Term. In spite of the non-appearance of the operator at the appoint- ed time, and after frantic telephone calls here and there, the show finally took place, to the delight of the girls, who were most enthusiastic in their applause. At (Christmas, I was invited to represent the Association at the Study School Christ- mas (]aro] Service. Unfortunately, as the Trafalgar Carol Singing took place at the same time, 1 was unable to be present at the Study. I ' he (Canteen (Committee has continued, during this last year, to take the Sunday shifts at the Red Triangle in as efficient a manner as usual. I regret that I have been unable lo lake an aclive pari in ibis work, but was interested in being invited to attend a Red Triangle 11 ul Hirlliday Parly. 1 1 was a very successful party, even to the delicious [64 Sir George Williams College OF THE MONTREAL Y.M.C.A.
