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 " yaurns 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 the last magazine was published, there have been two days of great rejoicing throughout the world, V-E Day and V-J Day. The end of hostilities in Europe came early in May, to our infinite joy, and to the great happiness of people everywhere. V-J Day, bringing with it the downfall of .Japan, was the dawn of a free and peaceful world, in which every man and woman has a right to the four freedoms. Thus it was with lighter, happier hearts that we saw the beginning of this school year. The United Nations ' Organization has met in an effort to plan for world peace, with the threat of the atom bomb hanging over it. There have been many and great difficulties which are slowly being resolved, as the wondering world waits to discover what the final outcome will be. We who this year are leaving school have a great future to look forward to. No longer do we have to go forth to war; now there is a much larger and more satisfying task for us. Instead of destroying, we can build; instead of killing, we can encourage life. Our bravery must be greater than mere physical endurance. We must have mental strength, so that we shall not be disheartened by adversity. We have lived our lives in a safe and protected atmosphere, at school and at home. The war has not touched us to any great extent. We have not known hunger, sudden death, paralysing fear. Our parents and teachers have always stood between us and the harshness of the world around us. The time has come when we must step out from behind that comfortable, protec- tive barrier and go to the aid of those who liave never been helped in such a way. Many of us will be going to college where we shall have wider interests and broader horizons, but we shall still be somewhat sheltered. We must begin to prepare for the time when we shall be called upon to take our places in the world. We are the future women of Canada. We must try to train ourselves for such a position and then go forth and, as we meet the problems of life, deal with them as honestly and capably as we can. We must see to it that, because of our influence, our country ' s relationships with the other nations of the world will be such that real and lasting peace can be established. We, who are young, must see that new and more advanced ideas are brought forth, to keep men ' s minds active and alert; we, who are Christians, must learn to pattern our whole lives on true Christianity; we, who have learned to be fair, must fight racial injustice and religious intolerance wherever we find it. We look out into the world beyond with a little misgiving at its vastness, but we know that whatever work in life we undertake, we, who have been fortunate enough to have been taught at Trafalgar, will be well equipped to meet the inevitable difficulties and trials of the days to come. There is a great task for us in the post-war world. We must go out and do it. Editor Sub-t ' .flitor Svvrt ' tary- 1 rcasiirvr Sports Editor Art Editor House Rt ' presentatiie Honorary Adviser .

Died at I ictoria, British ( ' olurnbia. on January 26 i, 1946. " They are not dead who live In hearts they leave behind. In lives whom they have blessed They live, and shall live As time declares their good And proves their immortality. " Trafalgar Girls, past and present, and many others associated with Miss Gumming, gathered at the Ghurch of St. Andrew and St. Paul, on Tuesday, January 29th, 1946, to pay a tribute of aflFection, respect, and gratitude for the life, service, and influence of a wise and great teacher, a great and good woman. The Venerable Archdeacon Gower-Rees in his address at this service put our thoughts into words: ■ ' For twenty-three years, which is a long time in so responsible and exacting a task. Miss Gumming guided the physical, mental, moral, and spiritual growth of the hundreds of girls who passed through Trafalgar School. " This memorial rite is not a tribute to official service or literary genius, or popular and public distinction — it is homage to personal character. It is your and my declaration that a life of such transcendent purity of purpose, and of such utter unselfishness is an example which cannot fail to inspire all who ever came under her influence. It would be disrespectful familiarity to a woman of her lofty spirit, high ideals, her great soul, her rich cultural endowments, her long and honourable life to endeavour to weigli and estimate her character. " Though she has passed from among us, she has left behind her, her better part: she has left us the legacy of her bright example, the memory of her noble life. She requires no memorial of carved wood and stone: her memorial is found in the hearts and minds of those she taught and loved. " [15] LITERARY THE INDIAN GIRL LAST autumn I spent one short but memorable week in Caledonia, a tiny, old- f fashioned village on the shores of Lake Huron. While there I devoted most of my time to photography and canoeing, or perhaps I should say to a combination of both. Whenever I could, I borrowed the canoe of a little old fisherman wlio lived nearby. Then, taking my lunch and camera, I would ex- plore the meandering streams that branched off the main body of water. Along the way I took snapshots. My last complete day at Caledonia was spent in this fashion. I was idly drifting down one of these streams oblivious to everything except my dreams, when suddenly I heard the sound of distant singing. I caught hold of the paddle and made " Celia " speed down the stream in search of the voice. I realized I was approaching the singer as the tone became clearer and louder every minute. Finally, the river entered a miniature lake, on one side of which was located an Indian Reservation. Still, I could not find the person from whose lips that beautiful music was flowing, music unlike any I had ever heard. As the voice continued I was filled with a violent desire to leave civilization and live alone, always in the open; to be a comrade of birds and animals; to sleep with a soft breeze soothing me; and to feel the wild patter of raindrops on my face. Suddenly the music stopped and the silence was so complete that I wanted to scream. Instead, I reached for my camera and took a picture of all that was before me, so that I might liave something tangible with which to strengthen my memory of the singing. Slowly I turned the canoe around to begin the homeward journey, and after four hours of steady paddling I reached Caledonia exhausted. The next morning, before we left for Montreal, I developed the last pictures I had taken. Anxiously I awaited the results of the picture taken at the Indian Reservation. When all work on it was completed, I gazed at it in surprise. There was a perfect reproduction of the sun blending in with the glass-like lake, and the shadows of the hill above the water made a marvellous background for the wooden cabins in which the Indians lived. As I scanned the picture, I beheld something that had remained unseen to me the day before. There was a girl in the picture, an Indian girl, standing [16] on the top of the hill, almost hi(Ulen by the shadows. Slie stood with her arms flung up and out, and her face u|)lifted. Her kui , thirk hair was liardly diseernihie a-jainst the darkening hill, yet it was easv to imagine how beautiful it must be. I could alnu st hear tiie siKer notes issuing from her uiouth. Here was my hidden serenader. J()A Li CAS. Korm IVb. Fairley House. THE CLIMBER ith eager steps 1 climbed the hill And struggled toward its snow-capped top, Inch sparkled in the morning sun Ami lured me on. I could not stop. Then suddenly a tiny thought Possessed me. and began to grow. Until it filled my very brain; A voice within me murmured low : " jNo matter what, you must keep on! It will be infinitely sweet To moiuit the highest peak and see This pun world beneath your feet! " Like one possessed. I struggled on And gathered strength with every stride; And when at last I scaled the top My tired heart felt a surge of pride. With eyes intent upon the sky, I marvelled at its bluish glow. Then, proud and confident, I turned To gaze on that which lay below. But what was thh ' f My senses reeled. I stared down into endless space; The earth rocked crazily. I gasped. Sheer terror mirroreil in my face. The same low voice within me stirred And whispered with a gentle sigh: ' ' You cannot see the world below. Ambition made you climb too high " . Judy Smith, Form Va, Barclay House. THE PERFECT CRIME I COMMITTED the perfect crime! Please do not scoff. I did. My conscience pricked me, so I told the police. They laughed when I told them, and said that " the likes of me " could not do anything harmful. Still you laugh? You want me to tell my story? All right then — judge for yourself. I am a little man, not much over five feet, quite fat, and very ordinary. I am not the type one bothers to look at twice. By profession I am a shoemaker, and I own a little shop in the heart of downtown. I am a great reader of murder mysteries. I enjoy reading them. Most of the plots are very feeble, and I spend my spare time improving them so that no clues are left. Having read little else in the last fifty years, I wondered how it would feel to have committed a perfect crime. I planned to find out. I decided that the first person who entered my shop the next day would be my victim. It happened that it was a young man, not quite thirty, I should think, definitely athletic. He wanted his shoes resoled while he waited. I took them and went into the back of the shop. I had outlined all the details the night before. I had my mechanism all ready. Hastily I resoled the shoes. Then I pried off one heel, hollowed it out, and put in a special little machine I had been working on all during the night. I shall not describe it, for I want no one to know. I put the heel back on, and returned the shoes. As the customer left, I shut up my shop to follow him. For ten minutes I dogged his shadow along the street. Suddenly there was a loud " puff " . People looked around but could see nothing. Yes, nothing, for he had completely disappeared. I had put an explosive in my machine and had timed it to go off ten minutes after I had set the fuse. So these were the sensations I had wanted to feel. My chest swelled with satisfac- tion; my step was brisker. That night, after dinner, I sat down to think it over. I had a long, heated argument with myself, and it was after midnight when I decided to give myself up to the police. Even at that late hour I went to them and told them all. They laughed, as you have laughed, and told me to go back to my mystery stories. I could not fool them ! You laughed before, but you do not laugh now. Why? Nora Corley, Form Junior VI, Barclay House. OCTOBER IN THE COUNTRY Now beauty falls in slow sweet drops Over the rim of Plenty ' s Horn, Pouring forth in deep brown streams Flowing past full fields of corn. Colour is splashed on wooded slopes Sharp to the eye, yet mingled so One cannot tell which purple, gold, Or scarlet is — nor wish to know. Up from the farmhouse roof the smoke Creeps in the drowsy spirals grey. And melts to ether and the lines Of hills and houses fade away. A gentle mist clings on the verge Of the horizon like a canvas blurred About the edges by a careless brush And in the distance wings a bird. .Joyce McLean, Form Senior Sixth, Barclay House. THE CHURCH A(iAI ST the deep, rirh blue ot tlie sunset sky, the square stone tower of the old church stood out steeply. Shadowed {ireen hiwns, leaf-strewn, stretched out from its ivv covered sides. The hist ravs of tlie evening sun caught one of the windows and shone fire, wliile the birds twittered ceaselessly in the nearby trees, as they settled down for the night. The Church was high and large, its roof forming a pointed arch, and the bell hinig silent in the tower. The stones were ihirk with age and their sharp points had been smoothed and rounded by the weathering of many storms. Inside, the church was silent, save for the creaking of the massive, wooden door as it closed after me, sluitting out the sunlight and encasing me in a soft sheltered gloom. The walls were panelled with rich, brown wood, and the ceiling rose to a sharp peak, high above, creating a feeling of vastness, while the marble pillars holding it up, gave a sense of security and safety. The pews stretched out on both sides of the wide middle aisle down which I slowly walked, admiring the gold and green of the altar cloths in the chancel before me. The golden eagle whicli formed the lectern, its wings stretched wide to hold the Bible, gazed at me steadily and the two carved wooden seraphs on the baptismal font smiled at each other. On the windows in beautifid stained ulass were the saints made softly alive by the light shining through them. There were plaques on the wall in memory of loved ones long dead, one — large and bronze — bore the names of those who had fought and died in the two wars. The Sim. tlirougli the windows, slione on the organ pipes and played colours on them, then slipped down and lit up the eagle ' s eye, taking the calmness from it, and making him glare balefully. I turned around and walked slowly out, opening the door and standing under the high arch with the dying sun blinding my eyes and felt rested and content wit h God, who could empower people to build such tributes to His love. Jan Henry, Form Junior VI, Ross House. MOONRISE Slowly the pale, full moon rose up. Its path ' cross the heavens to take, The golden beams threw shimmering gleams On the peaceful mirror lake. The skies which were quickly deepening mauve. Wrapped the world in a soft, dark cloak. The woodland bird was not to be heard. And night held the woodland folk. [19] Hesitant, shy of the world below, The moon, gaining courage, rode high ' Mid the first of the twinkling host of stars In the free and adventurous sky. Onward and on, the moon took its course, And as dawn brought the early, grey light. The moon dipped low, and with fading glow. It sank and was lost from sight. Joan Leslie, Form Va, Fairley House. MY QUANDARY ALONG with my class-mates, I have been asked to write something for the school magazine, but after wrestling with my poor, oft-defeated brain, I find that it is of no use. This is my trouble. Essays, poems, and other literary exercises do more, I believe, towards developing gray hairs in the average school-girl ' s head than going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. This, on my part at least, is due not to lack of imagination, but to lack of the power of expression. First I stare at the paper until it practically withers up, but this does not get me anywhere, so my gaze reverts to the window. What greets my eyes there but the leering faces of Milton, Shakespeare, and Wordsworth, who have absolutely no sympathy for me. They evidently think that I shall never pluck the laurel and the brown myrtles at any time, and I frankly agree with them. Even agreeing with these famous souls does me no good, for I know that great wrath will descend on me, if some piece of literature is not produced before long. Back I go to the task of wearing out several gross of pencils at both ends (one by writing, the other by chewing ) and several quires of paper. Later I find I have actually written several lines. Please note that I call them lines, for upon receiving back the corrected essay, I discover that there is a very sad lack of subjects for verbs, to say nothing of lost prepositions, and misplaced objects. Nevertheless, I take heart and bravely begin to rewrite. This time I think and ponder, but the only real result is a terrific headache, which I realize will do nothing towards improving my marks. In spite of this I manage to write a new page or so. By now the Puritan poet is actually laughing at my sad plight, but he would not, of course, think to offer help. Not on his strict soul ! Dickens, however, proves to be a much kindlier spirit and suggests that descriptive adjectives take up a lot of space. Then Lovelace floats by, with an intimation that if I really want to write, I should find a cold prison far more suitable. I doubt if I shall ever find peace, even when the " Essay Days " are over, for I shall still have to write letters. Helen Taylor, Form Va, Barclay House. [20] PEACE AT LAST ! Here lies a poor woman who always was tired, She lived in a house where no servants were hired, The last words she said were: " Dear friends, 1 am fioing;, here washing ain ' t wanted, nor sweeping nor sewing, And everything there is exact to my wishes, For where folks don ' t eat there ' s no washing of dishes. No heaving the Hoover all over the floors. Or having a day full of merciless chores. In heaven loud anthems forever are ringing. But having no voice. I ' ll keep clear of the singing. Don ' t mourn for me now, though you thought me a treasure Cause I ' m going to hecome a lady of leisure! " Maeve Fogt, Form Vb, Gumming House, " IF AT FIRST YOU DON ' T SUCCEED . . . " SHE stood at the top of the hill. It was a race and she was Number Seventeen. Four- teen had just gone and Fifteen was waiting. Soon she was waiting. How would she make the first turn when everyone else had fallen? Five seconds to go — how would she know whether she was off the trail or not? Four seconds — three seconds — she couldn ' t ski. What was she doing in the race? Two seconds — one second — she would just have to make a fool of herself. Go ! She was off. If only she could get around the first turn all right, then she would be in the woods and she could not be seen. Perhaps if she snowploughed to the turn and went around it [21] slowly , . . She tried it. She would be all right if she didn ' t get off the trail. Around the turn she went and into a snowdrift. No sooner had she touched the snow than she was up again. She didn ' t waste very much time on that turn. If she could get up as fast as that every time she fell, she might only take two minutes (it was a one-minute run). Horrors! Her ski was off. Why had she asked her father to adjust the harness the night before? She put it on in a hurry and was off down the hill again. She was in the woods now, and nobody could laugh at her, anyway. She was going awfully fast. Why had she put so much wax on her skis? She would slow up now for the next turn. Her skis crossed! She was down, and her ski was off again. Why hadn ' t she stayed at home? Why did she have to be in the silly old race? She was away once more. Another hair- pin turn! To be on the safe side she sat down, slid around the turn, and then stood up again. She must have taken five minutes already. She wished she were at home on the nice gentle slope where she spent her weekends skiing. She would never go in a race again. More turns, more spills, and she was almost finished — just one more turn and she was out of the woods. She was on it before she could say " boo " . Down she went in a spray of snow; she was now thoroughly covered with snow. How they would laugh when she arrived at the finish line, looking as if she had come all the way down in a sitting position ! She got up, brushed herself off, and started once more when she had put her ski back on. Once she got to the end she would say good-bye to this hill forever. She heaved a sigh of relief as she saw the finishing flags ahead of her. She passed them, stopped, and sank into the snow as if it were a nice soft bed. " Number Seventeen, three minutes " , she heard someone call. Three minutes was not bad considering that she had lost her ski three times, and had fallen down so many times, but she could do better. Perhaps she would enter again next year to see if she could do it in two minutes. Betty Bown, Form IVb, Barclay House. [22] AUTUMN In Spring, tlie trees are budding forth. The cohl. liarsh wind, eonie from tlie North, Has ceased. And all the foliage green Makes great tlie contrast to the scene In Autnmn. In Summer, birds and squirrels play. And do not hide themsehes away In iiollow trees the n hole ilay through As oft as the) were Nvont to do In Autmnn. In Winter everything is white. The snow reflects the sun ' s bright light, And skiing on a hill of snow Is something tluit you cannot do In AutuHMi. The dullest season of the year, When all the trees and shrubs are bare And wind doth through the branches sough And leaves are brown, is with us now In Autumn. Makgaket Wansbrouch, Form IIIb, Gumming House. DIARY A LA PEPYS SATURDAY, MARCH 3rd. Greeted mv father on return from Capitol, he travelling down on one of the new steam trains. Looking forward to a dull Sabbath when my mother recalled that she had some tickets for a display on the ice at the Forum, known by the strange name of " Ice Follies " . So after supping on the usual joint of meat, we all off to the " Ice Follies " , by the electrical conveyance, and arrived at Forum. There some confusion at finding seats, my mother insisting we were in wrong row. Whereupon my father carefully explained that nimibers of seats corresponded to numbers on stubs of tickets. After one-half hour, performance began. Beautiful damsels and comely youths skating around to music in lovely costumes, under ever-changing coloured lights, the whole creating so heavenly an effect methought myself transported to the realms of paradise. Suddenly recalled to earthly state by the shrill complaining voice of young sister who had espied a vendor of sweetmeats and demanded a bottle of sweet water containing air-bubbles which is named " Coca-Cola " , and a box of frozen cream. Whereat my father said, " Did we come down to eat our supper or to watch a hockey game? " Whereupon my mother sweetly reminded him that it was not a hockey game we were watching, but a performance called the " Follies " . Eventually this display came to an end, whereat we [23] again boarded electric conveyance. So home and to bed, which indeed did please me mightily. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6th. Did arrive late at school this morning, having retired near midnight, after a mighty heroic struggle with Milton ' s " Paradise Lost " . Have lately developed a most unfortunate habit, that of continually asking my neighbour the time. Do mightily dislike this habit and am resolved to break myself of it. So home, and, after supper, did retire to my private closet to study my books. Did learn nothing more than I already had knowledge of. So to bed, mightily tired and befuddled in mind, longing for the coming week-end. Judy Smith, Form Va, Barclay House. THE DESTRUCTION OF NYLONS The shoppers came down like wolves on the store. For here they had heard there were stockings galore. And the gleam of their eyes was like stars on the sea As they reached for the Nylons on the counter by me. Like the leaves of the forest when summer is o ' er. Was the counter they left in the poor, battered store. Like the leaves of the forest when autumn hath blown The clerks in that section lay winded and prone. And there was one clerk, distorted and dead With a bruise on her brow and with blood on her head; The counter was empty, the shoppers had gone. And so had the last of those stockings. Nylon. Elizabeth Brown, Form Junior VI, Gumming House. THOUGHTS OF A SIXTH FORMER As I sit here, trying to write at a hard wooden desk in the Sixth Form class room, my mind goes back through the years to the countless number of other times I have done exactly the same thing. This large, varnished green coloured desk no longer seems [24] lo be in its same setting. Now it is in the A classroom, facing in a different direction and looking at different teachers. Again the scene fades and it is in the IVa room. Back through the years it goes, and as it rests momentarily in each form room, some of the pleasant times 1 have spent in each class are relived in my dreaming brain. I remember the Gym Dem. in the Fourth Form. e were in quarantine the week before, and when we came back on Friday morning we had forgotten everything that Miss Box had taught us to do for that night. Recollections of the Upper Second come to me and 1 realize what a grand time we had when we were one huge class, unburdened with the duties and responsibilities that we ha e now. The occasional bad mark was not the deadly sin then that it is today. Finally, my desk comes to rest in a tiny classroom, with a large piano, over in the house. It is no longer large and green; it is small anil brown. I am in the Preparatory Form, and it is my first day at Trafalgar. How I held in awe the four girls who had been there one year before me, and how shy I was of this huge over-powering school! It is hard to realize that was only ten years ago. It seems like a whole life time. I cannot quite comprehend that I am in the Sixth Form now. and next year I shall not be here, working between these friendly walls. On the walls of our present classroom, many eyes stare down at us. They are the graduates of the past years. It is not only their pictures that are there, but their presence that fills tlie room. They seem to tell us, witli unmoving lips, to make the most of the time we still have here, for these next few months, once lost, can never be returned. X ork for self, and for your scliool. tiiey say. Wliate er you do reflects on the name of Trafalgar. For every girl who has attended this school has left her mark, whether it be good or bad. That is what makes a school more than a building: that is what gives a school a soul: that is what makes a Trafalgar girl proud to say, " ] Iy school " . Joan Bayer, Form Junior VI, Ross House. TO CHURCHILL We broke faith with those who died In Flanders fields, and by their side Now lies another generation bold, Who fought as their fathers did of old Against the selfsame foe. But one there is who heard their call, In parliament, in press and hall. He held the torch and raised the cry. Warning of Nazi spirit sly. But no one heeded him. Another v ictory now is won. Another torch to us is flung. Again he sees where trouble lies And bids us now to action rise. Democracies, Awake ! Nancy Cliff, Form Senior VI, Gumming House. [25] 9 White Ladies, White Ladies, oh, where do you roam, On your beautiful white-capped foam? Do you rush down the mountains and over the falls, And on, and on, to where Nature calls? Oh, I wish I could follow your white foamy path To where on the boulders you break into wrath. White Ladies, White Ladies, oh, take me with thee, To adventure, and treasure upon the vast sea. Susan Pitfield, Form Upper I, 11 years. APRIL April is the month for showers, New green leaves and budding flowers. When little children go out to play In rain and puddles all the day; When boys make dams and water chutes, And wet their stockings and their boots; The month when farmers go to tap The maple trees to get their sap. The sun breaks through, and then I see Two robins sitting in a tree; Then I know that Winter ' s past. That April ' s here. It ' s Spring at last. Joanna Leipoldt, Form Upper II, Fairley House. THE WISHING RING " Great merciful heavens! " exclaimed Mr. Weatherby, looking at himself in the mirror. He was just getting ready to go to a dinner party, and glanced at his reflection in order to straighten his bow-tie. Seeing himself, not in a smart dinner jacket, but in old rags and carrying a staff in one hand, he received the shock of his life. " Oh, Ma - - a - - a - ry " , called Mr. Weatherby in rather an unhappy tone, " come here quickly. " [26] Tlie next iniiuite Marv. his wifo, was in his room saying, " Yes, what is it, (lear: 1 hope von are reatlv, beeause tlie Drakes are ealling for ns in five minutes. " After poor Mr. eatherby had exphiined to his wife that the cause of it all must have been his signet ring, which had a wishing stone in it, she too was shocked when she saw his reflection. Just be fore he had first looked in tlie mirror, he had been wishing that he were a simple shepherd so that he would not have to go to troublesome things like parties. This was the result. But the thing that most puzzled both him and his wife was that he resembled a shepherd only in his reflection, and not when he looked down at himself. After nuK-h to-do, the Weatherbys finally started off for the party. Once there, Mr. Weatherby looked in the mirror to see if he was neat; he was terribly angry and embarrassed when others laughed at the strange reflection in the mirror. e er ilid Mr. eatlierby get rid of the figure of the shepherd when he looked in the mirror. Eve Gordon, Form II, Barclay House. " TRAFALGAR ECHOES " hen we enter Trafalgar ' s grounds We hear the echoes of many sounds: The front door ' s hinges creak and squeak As it opens and closes all the week; Talking is forbidden, but we fear Many hushed whispers reach the ear; The pitter-patter of running feet Seeking the classroom ' s safe retreat; Apparatus rumbles over the floor Or thumping skipping ropes add to the roar; And from the gymnasium comes the beat Of distant music and marching feet. As pupils vanish from the halls The hush of quiet evening falls. Judy Cliff, Form Upper II, Gumming House. COLLECTED COLLECTIVES A little girl is speaking to her mother as they look at a picture book together. " Oh, Mummy, look at the litter of sheep. " " That ' s not a litter, darling: it ' s a flock. " " Mimimy. look at the flock of cows. " " But that ' s not a flock: it ' s a herd. " " Oh, Mummy, here ' s a herd of wolves. " " That ' s not a herd: it ' s a pack, darling. " " Look, there ' s a pack of ships. " [27] " Not a pack, but a fleet. " " Oh, Mummy, what a fleet of people! " " People make a crowd,, not a fleet. " " Here ' s a crowd of lions. Mummy. " " That ' s not a crowd; it ' s a pride. " " See this pride of bees. Mummy? " " That ' s not called a pride, but a swarm. " " Oh, Mummy, what a swarm of fishes! " " Not a swarm, but a school. " " And here ' s a school of geese. " " Darling, that is not a school, but a gaggle. " " Oh, Mummy, look at this gaggle of robbers coming. " " No, darling, it ' s a band of robbers. " " Look at this band of plates. Mummy. " " That ' s not called a band, but a stack. " " There ' s a lovely stack of flowers. Mummy. " " That ' s not a stack; it ' s a bunch. " " Mummy, loo!i at this bunch of partridges. " " Not a bunch, dearest, but a covey. " " Then, Mummy, look at this lovely covey of pearl beads. " " That ' s not a covey; it ' s a string. " " Oh, Mummy, I don ' t know the diff ' erence between any of them. ' " AFTERNOON TEA WITH A GOBLIN ONE fine day I was wandering in the woods looking for flowers of different kinds when I got lost. Suddenly I came to an oval door set in a rock. I knocked and the door opened. Two goblin soldiers came out, and, before I knew it, they had bound me with a thread-like cord which, try as I would, I could not break. They led me through a wide hall whose floor and walls were studded with jewels. At last we came to a room in which there was a magnificent throne made of pearls. Ann O ' Heir, Form Upper II, Gumming House. [28] On it sat a goblin. He in ite(l lue to enter and niolioned my captors away. hen lie rang a bell one of his servants eame ont with a jewelled ehair. Then he spoke for the first time: ill yon ha e tea with me? " 1 said, " es, 1 iH " . Vk hile his goblin servant was getting the tea ready, he told me about his country. It was while he was talking that I realized tiiat I had shrunk until 1 was no bigger than a two-inch pencil stub. Then the servant came in with the tea. 1 have never tasted anvthing so delicious. There was cake made ot the pollen of (lowers served on five-cent pieces, and acorn tea served in acorn cups. 1 confess I ate greetlilv. X hen it was all over he took nie to the royal gardens, where there were hundreds of varieties of Howers 1 had never seen before. 1 picked manv. and then the King took me down the long hall until 1 reached the door. In what seemed less than a second 1 found myself sitting on a rock. 1 looked down for my flowers, and found nothing but a binich of tiny weeds. Had I been asleep? as all this a dream? Bai!Bar Boon.

The breeze is still; she smooths her tangled hair. And gently combs her lovely yellow locks Which scatter far and wide, and here and there. She looks down at her shining sea-green tail, Then, longing, gazes towards the distant shore, And turns away. Her lovely face is pale. She dives into the waves. I see no more.

Done, nous avons eu une semaine de repos. Pendant que nous etions la, nous avons rencontre plusieurs personnes tres interessantes. La cuisiniere, que nous avons employee, avait eu dix-huit enfants, et elle avait soixante-deux ans, mais elle n ' est jamais sortie de Cap Chat. Son mari est un bon chauf- feur et aussi il sait bien conduire un canot. Nous avons essaye de nager dans le fleuve, mais I ' eau etait trop froide. Un jour, nous sommes alles au village chercher des provisions, et nous avons ete etonnes du nombre d ' hommes qui etaient tous assis sur le comptoir du magazin. lis nous onl regardes fixement, et j ' ai pense a ce moment que nous etions des monstres, mais novis portions des pantalons. Je ne pense pas que les dames frangaises de Cap Chat portent des pantalons. Done, nous avons eu une semaine tres agreable, et la campagne etait tres belle. apercevait des lumieres clignotantes. Notre guide nous dit: " Tenez! Voila Geneve. " Geneve, le point vers lequel nous nous dirigions depuis quelques semaines, tachant d ' eviter les coups d ' oeil inquisiteurs des Allemands. Tout d ' un coup, surgissant du brouillard, nous aper(;umes une haute barriere de fils barbeles. " Allons " , dit le guide. Lui et ma soeur ecarterent autant qu ' ils pouvaient deux des fils. Je passai a travers, je n ' ai jamais su comment. J ' avais une grande dechi- rure dans mon manteau et des egratignures a la figure et aux mains. Puis ce fut le tour de ma soeur qui se blessa grievement a la jambe. Nous retournant, nous ne vimes plus notre guide. Ne sachant que faire, nous continuames d ' avancer dans la nuit. Apres une centaine de metres, nous rencontrames une seconde barriere de fils barbeles. Au meme instant nous entendimes " Halt! Was is das? " Nous nous regardames terrifiees — les Allemands! Mais non! Tout simplement un soldat Suisse Allemand qui apparaissait derriere la barriere. Enfin, apres quelques instants nous etions en Suisse, en pays libre. Nous commen- cions a realiser que durant ces derniers jours, nous avions vecu comme dans un reve. Nous etions brusquement reveillees a la realite. Nous etions separes de nos parents. Nous ne pensions plus au danger que nous avions couru, aux emotions et aux frayeurs multiples du voyage, nous n ' avions qu ' une idee: c ' est que nous venions de fuir la France, le pays ou nous habitions depuis notre enfance et que nous aimions.

UN JOUR D ' AUTOMNE A PAIMPOL QUAND Tautonnie xient j aime me rappeler une seene qui a eu lieu chaque annee dans un petit xillage de peobeur en Bretagne. Tons les printemps, une flotilla de pecheur de sardines taisait la traversee de Paimpol en Islande et revenait en automne. Le soleil brille sur le xillage avee ses petites cbaiunieres et son minime liavre en- toure par les jetees de pierre. II est presque xide maintenant excepte pour quelque vieux bateaux qui ne peuvent pas tenir la mer. L ' evenement. que tout le village attend, est pres; le temps approcbe quand les bateaux, charges le poissons. rexiendront. Dans le marolie, les groupes des femmes dis- cutent I ' arrivee de la flotte, le volume de la prise et la bienvenue qui attend les hommes. Tout le monde est gai mais il y a de la peur dans leurs coeurs parce qu ' elles savent que quelques hommes sont tues chaque annee par les tempetes: pour beaucoup de femmes la joie se changera en tristesse. Maintenant c ' est Fapres-midi et le xillage entier reste debout sur le quai, cherchant sur riiorizon les voiles rouges et brunes. La foule salue par des acclamations — le pre- mier bateau se presente. Bientot le bateau pecheur le plus rapide sera au port; mais plusieurs jours passeront avant que les bateaux les plus lents n ' arrivent. Les gens sur le quai sont remplis d ' excitation et de confusion. Le soleil d ' automne, qui se couclie, jette une chaleur rouge sur cette scene heureuse dans la vie des pecheurs de Paimpol. Demse Craig, Form Junior VI, Ross House. [33] " THE HOUSE " A REPORTER from " Trafalgar Echoes " interviewed some of the Boarders from distant countries and asked each of them why she came to Canada. Each thought for a moment and repeated the question in her own language: " Me preguntas por que vine a Canada — Te dire: " One of the chief reasons why I came to Canada was to learn English and French. I hope one day to teach these languages to people in Cuba. I like to travel very much and I felt that by coming to Canada, I was going to have the chance of seeing other countries and other people. These countries and people would be different from those I had known, therefore I looked forward greatly to my trip through the United States to Canada. I find that I have been well rewarded. Leticia Artola, Form IVa, Fairley House. " U vraagt mij waarom ik naar Canada kwam — Ik zal het u vertellen. " I came to Canada not because I wanted to learn about Canada, but because our family followed my father. My father is the Dutch Consul here. When I think of Holland, I remember a very beautiful country. Although it is small, the quaint villages and countryside make it one of my favourite countries. Holland is still famous for its tulips and its canals, which you have read about in stories. I have been in Canada only three months and I have seen little of it except Montreal, but I like it very much. Nelly Sevenster, Form IVb, Cumming House. Me r vtexes giati eirlies eis ton Kaiiada.

It lies ofl the coast of enezuela north west of Trinidad. The climate is very pleasant; it is neither too hot nor too cool, the temperature being about 85 in the summer months and about 7.5 " during the winter. Because of its mild tropical climate, thousands of people from all over the world come to spend their winters in this " Isle of Paradise " , surrounded by sapphire and breathtakingly beautiful southern seas. The seas have an enchantment of their own which seems to surpass everything else. Imagine a silver sand beach fringed by tropical coconut palms and cassarinas, where people are swimming, surf bathing, water skiing, and yachting. That is the life of Barbados, but still, that is not all. The scene, as the golden sun sinks below the horizon, and the gorgeous moon rises in all its splendour to take its place, is beyond anyone ' s imagination and must be seen to be realised. I am very proud to be able to call this beautifid island my home, and I hope that some day you will be able to visit Barbados, the sunny and enchanted island of the tropics. Mary Ann Austin, Form IIIb, Barclay House. A NIGHT FIRE DRILL ' Twas the night before Thursday, and all through the " House " No one was stirring, not even the mouse. Our garments were thrown on beds without care In hopes that Miss Ewing at them wouldn ' t stare. The kids were all nestled beneath a cold sheet, While wishing that someone would turn on the heat, When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter I ran out in the hall to see what was the matter. Back to the window I flew like a flash, And slammed it tight shut with a terrible crash. The twinkling stars in the sky all around Seemed to stand at attention when they heard the sound. [351 More clamorous than dinner gongs pealing it came Seeming to hurry us forward by name. Now, Cynthia, now Skelly, now Joanie and Mary, On, Jaynie, on Greta, now don ' t be contrary. So down to the top of the stairs we all flew With a blanket, a coat, and some heavy shoes too. To my great amazement I saw on the stairs A poor frightened junior saying her prayers. As I helped her up and was tvirning arovmd Along came Miss Parsons, not making a sovmd. " That was not at all good. Now number once more. One might think that you never had done this before. " Her well-worded scolding got it into each head What each one should do if already in bed. She then wished us " Good night " and gave us a warning To go to sleep quickly for soon ' twould be morning. But we heard her exclaim to the staff with concern, " If we did have a fire, I ' m sure they ' d all burn. " Cynthia Lidstone, Form Junior VI, Fairley House. THE GRIM, GRUELLING TASK WEEKS in advance, you know of the approaching exams, hut since people are procrastinators before anything else, it is not until the week before exams that you suddenly feel an awful jolt as your muddled brain finally grasps the fact that in :i6] a week ou will l)e railed ii|)Oii to pour lortli odd hits ol e er tli iiig know or do not know . Your resolutions are j;ood as you (leei«le to .settle down to study in solitary confinement. The first hall hour goes hy without a hiteh: you e en feel you know a lew ol the irregular Kreneh verbs. on lui u the page to study the " idiotismes " as the Frenih eall them, and suddenly notiee lor the first time that there is an interesting illustration opposite page tiiirt -eight. Fhis picture shows a woman and a few friends having lunch. It comes to your mind that the woman ' s face needs lifting and so you proceeil. Her now glamorous mouth reminds you that you need some more lipstick. Her legs are odd too. Having redrawn the woman so that you now think she is quite beautiful, you leaf through the l)ooIv finding other characters who need to be beautified. Having given five or six of these people crosicil eves, new hair styles, and having taken awav lialf their teeth, your return avidly to the study of the peculiar irregularities of " la langue frantjaise " . A week of this assures you that you know absolutely nothing. So you promptly develop a chronic disease of the most amazing symptoms. 1 ou then invent a high sounding name for your malady aiul call it " penopliobia " or, in the King ' s English, fear of the pen. The dav arrives and so does your exam paper. One glance confirms your worst suspicions. Before you is a picture of page thirty-eight and that woman, but no grammar. Hair dishevelled aiul stan ling on end, you depart from the exam room and retire lo bed with an aspirin. Sylvia Skelly, Form Vb, Gumming House. FORM NOTES PREPARATORY AND REMOVE We have eight girls in our class. We started with seven, but after Christmas, a new girl, Vicky Cumyn, from Ottawa, joined us. These are some of the things we do. Three time a week we go to gym where we do many things we like, such as somersaults and rope climbing. Lynne Schofield and Katama Bonthron are very good at rope climbing. Once a week we go to art. This year wo did a puppet show of " Hansel and Gretel " which was a lot of fun. Our class has done well in Mission Collections. LOWER I AND UPPER I There are twelve girls in Lower I and Upper I. We are given a shield to hang on the door of our classroom if we have no bad marks for a whole week. Each of our two classes has won the shield eight times this year. In the first term, the President and Vice-President were in Upper I, and in the second term, the President is in Upper I and the Vice-President is in Lower I. At Christmas time we made cards and sent them to the Children ' s Memorial Hospital, and before school closed, we sang carols in the gym. In the Gymnastic Demonstration we played racing games which were great fun. In our sewing class we [38] made a sewiiij; bag at the begiiiiiiiif: of the year. Then we made bootees, and pin ousliions. and iu we are making sear es. FORM II Form II is one of tlie smallest classes in the school. There are only ten girls in it. W e are a very gay class, and really ery good bnt we do manage to get bad marks. Miss Reid is our Form Mistress. Barbara Boon, our (. " .lass President, tries to keep us quiet. Susan Racey, our ice-President, fills in when Barbara is away. Anne Pearson, our class Treasurer, is always taking our money from us. At the beginning of the year. Miss Reid asked us if we each wanted to grow a (lower and look after it ourselves. e each grew dirterent flowers, such as tulips, dartodils. and narcissus. There is only one tulip bulb left to come up and we hope it will survive. We have had two plays this year. The one in history was called " THE DEATH OF THOMAS a BEC.KET " . Miss Young and Lower and Upper I attended. This one was in our class room. The other play, for English, was, " A CHRISTMAS CAROL " by Charles Dickens. We acted this one in the gym and Miss Parsons, Miss Gillis, Mrs. Darroch, Miss Young, Lower and Lpper I, L pper 11. and Preparatory all saw it. Miss Reid and Miss Stansfield have promised us a visit to the wax museum to see the catacombs. e are sure it will be ery interesting. The Gym Demonstration was a success. We did " THE TOY SHOP " , and it was a lot of fun. There were two golliwogs, a clown, three dolls, Mickey Mouse, a sailor, a soldier, and a jack-in-the-box. School will soon be over and we are looking forward to some more fun next year. FORM UPPER II In our form, there are twenty-four girls, all very lively. Our classroom is situated on the second floor by the marble stairs and it is large and sunny. If you should lose your way thither, our noise will be your guide. We knit and sew for the Red Cross and twelve of us have made handkerchiefs for a blind child. Our form is divided into four companies called Squirrels, Chipmunks, Fawns, and Bumblebees, and each company has a leader. We have a chart to record marks for certain things which are added up at the end of the week by our Form Mistress. e get one mark for an A and three for knitting and reading. We take off five points for bad marks and ten for detentions. A cup for the winning company is awarded in June. Every week we have gvm twice and games in the afternoon once, and we always look forward to these periods. In the Gym Demonstration this year our class did marching. Half of the class wore pale blue blouses and the other half white, with " Traf shorts. It made a very pretty effect. [39] We thank our Form Mistress, Miss Parsons, for being interested in all our activities and for being such a great help. FORM IIIa We, the fifteen girls of Form IIIa are usually a great trial to our Form Mistress, Miss Harvie. Every morning our President, Linda Jackson, and our Vice-President, Joan Knight, try to keep us quiet between lessons, but all in vain. On the day before the mission collection, Joan empties the contents of our wallets into the mission box, leaving us just enough money to buy street-car tickets so that we can get home. She usually manages to get several dollars, so she is a good class treasurer. We are all very keen about sports and two girls were on the Junior Ski Team this year, Betty Hawthorn and Claire Gill. We hope to do well in the form basketball match under our Captain, Elaine McKay, and our Lieutenant, Linda Jackson, and also in the Gym Competition under our Gym Captain, Mary Brown. Those who like reading keep Phyllis Cartwright, our Library Representative, verj busy collecting fines for books which are overdue. We are a very happy form and have had a wonderful year with Miss Harvie. FORM IIIb " SHH! " " Quit poking me, Susan " . " Lend me your Latin, Joan " . " Girls, who is making all that noise? " Dead silence. Miss . . . concludes that this is what the members of Form IIIb call studying, and announces that every girl will stay in for three minutes at one o ' clock. However, at one o ' clock when Miss . . . arrives, the classroom is empty except for two girls who are " hightailing " it out of the door as though their very lives depended on their making a getaway. The ultimate result is that on Tuesday morning, when the bad marks list is read out, all of IIIb stands up, firmly resolving to have the good conduct shield on the door next week. So it contiiuies. If a racket is heard in the hall, why, of course, it must be IIIb. Which form is behind in its work? Why IIIb naturally! Such is Form IIIb, the form which holds the distinction of having had the good conduct shield fewer times than any other form in Trafalgar. If, upon entering " Traf, " you should happen to see a mistress hastening along the hall armed with a box of aspirin, you may be quite sure as to her destination and you will know that next week IIIb will have to make another good resolution. FORM IVa IVa has a large share of the Fourth Form newcomers, as eight of our nineteen members were new. We have in our class this year, and we hope will have for many more, Leticia Artola from Cuba and Lilia Suarez from Mexico. [40] . We do not excel in studie;;, but leave that to the B ' s. Gym antl games are our speeialties and we feel ery heartened, as we received more G ' s and Stars this vear than any other class i excludiu ' : the Sixth of course). I am afraid v e ha e driven our teachers nearh to the point of exas[)eration. Poor Mademoiselle has had to retire to bed every so often, supposedly with ' flu. Miss Harvie has a bad time with the Latin class as there are seldom more than two of the nine girls present. ' We seem to lune a knack of getting a lot of bad marks in one week instead of spreading them out over several weeks, so that we occasionally receive the shield; in fact we are only eight stars behind I B. But apart from all that, we are a pretty good class, at least, we think we are, and we will beat tlie 1 b " s yet. ou just wait and see! FORM IVb 1 here are thirteen of us in 1 B. ' W e think it must be lucky. 1 b was well represented on tlie Junior Ski Team. Other members of our class took part in the Singing ( " ontest and Spelling INIatch. e welcomed a new girl during the Easter Term, Nelly Sevenster, who came to us from Holland. e iuipe she has enjoyed her year with us and we are looking forward to another one with her. Miss Stansfield is our Form Mistress. Our class officers are: Enid Pascoe, our President and Gym Lieutenant: Betty Bown, Vice-President and Gym Captain; Anne an art. Games Captain and Class Treasurer; Dael Perry, Games Lieutenant; Jill Hutchinson, Library Representative; and irginia LeDain, Magazine Representative. FORM Va This is one of the most enterprising forms in the school. What other class is doing scientific research, and on what will soon be an ever-increasing scale? e boast of the " Hutcheson-Sims Mouse Breeding Association " . It is the promoters ' desire to breed thoroughbred white mice and so study heredity. ( ur morals are of the highest. Of course there is that little matter of the Mandcr- Fogt Air-Mail Service across the room, but it is of little account. We speak only of that which is suitable to a young ladies ' institute. Take, for instance, the Corner-Leslie Discuesion Group. Subject: — Boys. The girls " courage and fearlessness are widely known. It must be understood, however, that even the best of us are timid at times. Take for example Helen ' s prc- French tremors. Diane Lillie must find that window handy in class. It is pleasant to have some- thing to look intently at, if one does not know the answer to a question. [41] There are our stable, dependable girls, such as Audrey Cliff, with her slow smile and careful questions. We have one scholar, Nancy Inglis. By the way, what makes the Callahan-Graham Team collapse with helpless laughter at the most inopportune times? " Thank goodness for Dutton " , we often say. Who else could drive dull care away but the class jester? The last Friday of the month finds Diana McNairn with outstretched hand and a greedy look in her eye, calling " Gimme-gimme " . Needless to say our mission box is copper-full. We are all supple of limb and everyone makes an attempt at gym. Poor Audrey Hanley is held back from careless capers by that appendectomy. Va is a quiet and well-behaved form. Did I say quiet? Of course Shirley Forbes does sometimes chatter after the second bell to Doreen Moore, her willing listener, or Judy may annoy the teacher by whispering explanations to Valerie in the middle of class, but that is all very natural. We have only three stars on our shield so far, but that is because of unfortunate circumstances and the girls are not to blame. I think we are a model form — don ' t you? FORM Vb It ' s any morning of the week and the time is eight-thirty. As we peep into Room Nine, we find everything extraordinarily quiet. We look again at eight-forty, and still no one has appeared. At approximately eight-forty-one, our Form President, Mia, stumbles in with an armload of books, looking somewhat bedraggled. Viola, and Joan W., and Isobel make their appearance next. Giana, Jean, and Racey come in, giggling and talking. Nancy and Joanne enter, chattering. Ovir sweet, innocent boarders, Jaynie and Sylvia, sail gaily through the door. Mairi, Ann, Betty, Joan, Garment, and Patterson file in at about eleven minutes to nine. The bell goes at ten to nine and we hear, " Get into line and number for roll call. " Roll call is not very snappy as it is still early in the morning. Isobel reads the dinner list and there is the usual general bedlam if any names are omitted. Immediately after prayers. Miss Cam gives a few announcements. Then she asks if there are any bad marks, and a few reluctant hands appear from certain corners of the room. We plough through six periods of strenuous work. The one o ' clock bell goes and Vb is in an uproar. We all barge out of the door after a " Good morning " to Miss Cam. In our hurry to get out, we don ' t have to worry, as the IVb ' s do, about knocking the shield off the door. We would like to wish all the future Vb ' s good luck and success. We ' ve had a happy year, even though we have the prospects of our " Matric " ahead of us. [42 1 FORM JUNIOR SIXTH PATRICIA X ITHEROW, " Pat " . 1944-46.

Ross House [51] THE SIXTH FORM DANCE On January the ninth of this year, school reopened for the winter term; on January the ninth, the Sixth Formers started making plans for their dance. They worked very hard for the next three weeks, but at recess all that could be heard from their little groups, scattered about the gym, was " I think there is going to be an orchestra, this year. " " Did you hear that . . . wants to give a dinner party? " " My Father says we can have the car. " At one o ' clock on the great day, the form fairly flew out of the building to get home early. A few kind souls came back and decorated the gym with blue and white crepe paper and the form crest. Others went about preparing food for the parties that were to be given. Five, six, seven o ' clock came and all said good-bye to their doting parents and sallied forth. By ten o ' clock the gym was filled. Beautiful young ladies in long, flowing skirts looked strangely different from the studious school girls they had been, doing gym in the same room only a few hours before. The sweet strains of Don Cameron ' s Orchestra floated through the hall and were enjoyed as much by the Old Girls who came as by the happy Sixth Formers. It was a wonderful evening and one long to be remembered. We are grateful to Mr. Pollock for taking pictures which in the years to come will remind us of our Graduation Dance. j Bayer, Form Junior VI, Ross House. SCHOOL EVENTS and ACTIVITIES THE TRAFALGAR CLP The Trafalgar laij), awarded to the most public-spirited of the Senior girls who at the same time has maintained a high standard of conduct and has shown devotion to work., was won last year by Owen Williams. THE FORSYTH CUP The Forsyth Cup, awarded to the Senior girl who has made the most of her oppor- tunities, showing herself friendly and helpful to all, was won last year by Annette Baird and Elizabeth Brow. LNTER-HOUSE SHIELD Tlie Inter-House Shield, presented by Mrs. Wynne Robinson, was won last year by Fairley House. PRESENTATION BY MR. RACEY On April 11th Mr. Race nuule a presentation to the School of a splinter from -Nelson ' s ship, the " Victory " . In a most interesting speech, Mr. Racey explained to us how, during the battle of Trafalgar, a midshipman named (ieorge estphal was standing beside the famous admiral, when both were wounded. .Nelson was carried to the cockpit, and the jacket that his attendants cast off him when dressing his wound was thrown partly over the young midshipman, in such a way that the tassels on the Admiral ' s epaulettes served to stop the bleeding of the boy ' s wound. Later the midshipman, himself now having ri. en to the rank of admiral, was able to identify Nelson ' s uniform by the epaulette tassels corresponding to those still in his possession, which had stanched his wound. It was this same sailor. Midshipman W estphal, who picked up the splinter of the Victory which Mr. Racey presented. Admiral Sir George W estphal was Mr. Racey ' s grand-uncle. In accepting, on behalf of the School, Mr. Racey ' s gift. Miss Foster expressed Trafalgar ' s gratitude for so precious a relic, and one of such particular interest to us. THE SINGING COMPETITION WE WERE all enthusiastic about the House Singing Competition which took place instead of the usual Dramatic Competition during the first term. Each of the four Houses was represented by a choir of over twenty girls. We were fortunate in ha ing Mr. Chadwick as our adjudicator. The songs which proved most popular were " Song of the Shipbuilders " , sung by Fairley House, ' ' Oh W here and Oh WTiere is Your Highland Laddie Gone? " , by Barclay, and Cumming ' s " Morning Song " . Mr. Chadwick said that the hymn " The Everlasting Mercy " by Ross was particularly well done. The gym was full of expectancy as the score was added up. A tie for second place increased our suspense. The results were: Barclay, ninety-six; Ross, eighty-six; Fairley, eighty-five; and Gumming, eighty. [53] Mr. Chadwick urged the girls to aim for a higher standard each year. In view of the encouraging resuhs this year, we hope that the competition will be repeated next fall. Rosemary Graham, Form Va, Ross House. THE CAROL FESTIVAL ON DECEMBER the twentieth, at four thirty in the afternoon, the annual Carol Festival took place in the gymnasium of Trafalgar School. Many favourite hymns and carols were sung by the girls, who were dressed very effectively in white. The Christmas melodies which were sung were as follows: " All My Heart " , " Bethlehem " , an old Latin carol called " Quem Pastores " , " Unto Us a Boy Is Born " , " Adeste Fideles " , " Brightest and Best " , " In the Bleak Mid-winter " and two carols translated from the original French, " Ding-Dong " , and " Patapan " . The singing ended with " While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night " and " 0 Sion ' s Daughter " . The background was a scene of painted pine trees, done by the Extra Art Class. The crowning eflfort of the afternoon was a pantomime fitted to the words of a delight- ful Indian carol, " ' Twas In The Moon of Wintertime " . The Indians were dressed in costumes of their own design and making, and were played by girls from the lower classes and the Fifth Forms. The piano accompaniment for the songs and acting was played by Miss Wayland and Dorothy Weldon. The afternoon was a success, and the girls sang their carols to the satisfaction of their conductor, Mr. Chadwick, who throughout murmured words of encouragement and praise. IsoBEL Thow, Form Vb, Cumming House. [54] THE HOUSES HIS YEAR Barclay. Cununini;, Fairley, and Ross Houses have competed enthusias- JL ti " all in tlie various activities, hoth in work and in sports. A good deal of hard work, has heen tlone. and everyhody lias enjoved doinj; it. On Field Day, in May of last year, Fairley House was successful. This February in the Spelling Bee. Ross House was the last to step down. The General Knowledge Test in April revealeil our ignorance, but gave each of the Houses a number of additional points. The Singing Competition was very successful, and all the girls put in some strenuous [)ractice before the final day arrived. Barclay House was victorious and all the houses contributed to a wonderful afternoon. e should like to thank all the girls who have spent time and energy in helping their houses. In Ross, Ann Pattison and Barbara Davison were exceptionally good workers. Dorothy eldon ami Reni Roberts stand out in Fairley. Enid Pascoe and Betty Bown ga e a wonderful show of points for Barclay, and in Gumming, Gatharine Ghadwick and Judy Glift are to be congratulated for their work. We should like to thank Miss Stansfield, Miss Gam, Miss MacGachen and Miss Harvie for their support and help in running our houses, and we, the Heads, are, grateful to all the girls for their work and enthusiasm. e wish our houses good luck in the future years, and to those who carry on, the best of success.

Throughout the past year the studio group, comprising girls from the Senior School, has concentrated on still-life, and out-of-door sketching, and has had willing models in Tassie Metrakos and Christian Haslett. The Art Room has profited in many ways by new acquisitions and by Miss Jaques ' s enthvisiasm and interest, but the old tap still rumbles on. tloNEy CLASS TREASURERS Form Senior VI — Daphne Pinhey Form Junior VI — Marilyn Spencer Form Va — Diana McNairn Form Vb — Nancy- Jane McMillan Form IVa — Elizabeth Cousins Form IVb — Ann Van Wart Form IIIa — Joan Knight Form IIIb — Joy Nicol Form Upper II — Deane Brown Form II — Anne Pearson Form Lower and Upper I — Christian Haslett [56] The ( " lass Treasurers have worked very hard this year.

The majority of the games were very fast and exciting. The first game of the season was played at the Y.W.C.A. on November the thirteenth, against Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s. " Traf " started the year with a bang by defeating both teams: 41-30 for the first team; 10-7 for the second. This game, I might add, was one of the best games ever played. It was very fast and exciting. It kept the audience on the edge of their seats as well as the players on their toes. The second game was played at the Y.W.C.A. on November twenty-sixth against Weston. Again " Traf ' s " first and second teams were victorious. The scores were 42-38; 24-11. Unfortunately this luck or skill, whichever you wish, did not last; at the next game against The Study, on December the sixth, " Traf ' s " first team was defeated 22-20. However, the second team kept up its good work by defeating The Study second team 16-12. This game was quite rough, the " Excuse me while I grab the ball " sort of game. Nevertheless it was lots of fun. That was the last game in 1945. The first game of the year 1946 was against Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s. This was perhaps more exciting than the first game, but not as good, in the game itself, the playing and the players. This game was played on January the twenty-eighth. The score at the end was a tie, 27-27. The dependable second team, however, kept on with its winning streak, 18-12. [60] [61] Our first team it seems was slowly declining, first winning, then tying and then finally being defeated. Weston defeated both Trafalgar teams. Credit is certainly due to Weston; their passing was exceptionally good, short and fast down the sides. Although the shooting was not very good, this did not keep them from defeating us. This was indeed a wonderful day for Weston, as their second team defeated " Traf ' s " second team 23-22. As you can well imagine, this game was very exciting. With the loss of this game, " Traf " had not forfeited her chance of winning the Inter-Scholastic Basketball Cup. Our second team was still in there pitching. The last game was played against The Study. The first team was again defeated 29-12, and as you can see rather badly. " Traf " was now neither first nor second but third. The second team tied 15-15. This tie still gave the cup to the second team. So now another season is over. We congratulate The Study on winning the first team cup. The games were enjoyed by all, and we are looking forward to more next year. Janice Jaques, Form Senior Sixth, Barclay House. SPORTS CHRONICLE 1944-1945 The Stocking Cup, awarded to the Form that has shown the most improvement in Gym, was presented to Forms VI and Vb.

The Inter-House Basketball was won by Cumming House with Barclay second. The Senior Form Basketball was won by Form VI and the Junior by Form IIIb. FIELD DAY Field Day of 1945 was held on a Saturday morning at Molson Stadium; this arrangement turned out to be very successful. It was an ideal day and everybody took part enthusiastically.

Joan Corner was third in the side stroke, and our relay team also came in third. The competition, which was held at the Community Pool, was for the Hershon Trophy.

Barbara Watson, Form Junior VI, Barclay House. THE SKI MEET THE DAY of the Interscholastic Ski Meet at St. Sauveur dawned bright and sunny with excellent skihig conditions prevailing. At twelve o ' clock the races got under way. The Seniors started with the Slalom Course and the Juniors with the Downhill. At one-thirty, these races concluded, and the Juniors tackled the tricky Slalom Course, while the Seniors clambered up the dizzy heights of the Molson ' s Downhill. After the tiring races, everybody plodded wearily over to the Penguins ' House where all sat and munched homemade sandwiches and sipped delicious hot chocolate while waiting for the results. Finally the big moment came. Trafalgar had won the coveted Molson Shield. Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s came second, while Westhill placed third. In the Juniors ' race. The Study won the cup, Westmount Junior High School came second, and Trafalgar third. In the Senior Combined results, Trafalgar ' s Betty Sutherland topped all comers by a wide margin. Betty won the Slalom and finished second in the Downhill. Rosemary Schutz of Montreal High School came second and Diane Lillie of Trafalgar third. In the Junior combined, Anne Bushell of The Study won by placing second behind Martha Fisher of The Study in the Downhill, and tied for first in the Slalom with Anne Henry of Westmount Junior High School, who came second in the combined. Margaret Notman of The Study placed third. We would like to thank the Penguins for holding another very enjoyable Inter- scholastic Ski Meet. Diane Lillie, Form Va, Barclay House. [65] THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION WE ALWAYS look forward to the Gymnastic Demonstration with much enthusiasm and excitement, and once more the " Dem " was a great success with large and enthusiastic audiences attending both performances. As usual, the audience enjoyed the Junior items and was delighted with the Second Form who were dressed as dolls in a toy shop and acted their parts very realistically. The Fourth and Senior Sixth Forms should be congratulated respectively for their exercises on the benches and their club drill, both in waltz rhythm. The Junior Sixth Form carrying red wands and wearing red sashes performed their difficult exercises with precision. The Fifth Form exercises. Third Form Skipping, and Upper II marching were all carried on with accuracy and grace and were most enjoyable. Scattered among the more serious events were the rope-climbing, vaulting, tumbling, and folk dancing, which tended to lighten the performance. The dancers were colourful in their peasant skirts and blouses. The Thursday " Dem " was concluded with a short speech by Dr. Currie of the Department of Education, McGill University, and on Friday evening, Mr. Dixon, one of the Governors of the School, congratulated Miss Box on the high standard and quality of the display. Mrs. Scrimger kindly presented the " G " badges and stars to the girls who had attained a high standard in gymnastics and once again another " Gym Dem. " was over. We want to thank Miss Box for her ceaseless training and Miss Wayland for her assistance with the music. Claire Johnson, Form Senior VI, Fairley House.

OF MONTREAL LIMITED 2085 St. Catherine St. West WE. 6781 [69] OLD GIRLS PRESIDENT ' S REPORT 1945-46 jlVCE AGAIN I take pleasure in reviewing briefly the activities of the Association since last spring. In the first week in June, the Annual Meeting and Dinner took place at the Y.W.C.A. Guests of honour included Miss Randall, Mrs. Leonard, and the Sixth Forms. The programme consisted of talks by two of our Old Girls, Alice Johannsen spoke on outh Hostelling, and Nora Miner on her experiences as a Red Cross Transport Driver with the Polish Forces in Scotland. So far this year, two meetings, a bazaar, and a dance have been held. At the first general meeting in the fall, in the school drawing room, plans for a bazaar were drawn up and committees for the year elected. A bazaar, to raise money for the scholarship fund, took place at the end of Novem- ber in the House. Afternoon tea, served in the drawing room hy members of last year ' s Sixth Forms, was a popular attraction. The results of the sale have greatly swelled the Scholarship Fund account. The Dance for the Sixth Formers was held for the fourth consecutive year, in the School Gymnasium, early in the Spring Term. Decorations carried out by the girls, in blue and white were most effective. The addition of a six-piece orchestra was welcomed with enthusiasm. On April 2nd a spring general meeting was held in the Gymnasium, to which the Teaching Staff and friends of the Association were invited. The programme for the evening, a showing of Spring fashions, sponsored by Eaton ' s, well repaid those who braved the rainy evening, to attend the meeting. Mrs. Jennifer Lindsay was the commentator. Refreshments were served. At Christmas I was invited to represent the Association at The Study Christmas Carol Singing Service. As the Trafalgar Carol Singing took place at the same time, I was unable to be present at The Study. The Canteen Committee has just completed, very successfully, four years of service at the Y.M.C.A. Red Triangle Hut on Sundays. I was invited to the birthday party at the Hut in December and enjoyed myself immensely. Last spring seventeen applicants wrote the Trafalgar Scholarship Examination. Barbara Davison, of Trafalgar School, was the winner. As the previous recipient, Jennifer Thomas has returned to England, another examination will be set this spring and a Scholarship for entrance into Third Form awarded in the fall. At the time of Miss Cumming ' s death, in January, the Old Girls ' Association joined the School in paying tribute to her at an impressive memorial service at the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul. On behalf of the Members of the Association, I should like to thank Miss Foster, the Staff, and Mrs. Darroch for their interest and help in all our activities.

JAMES STREET WEST MONTREAL Fire, Automobile, Plate Glass and Casualty Insurance [71] THE RED TRIANGLE CLUB N MARCH 31st, 1946, the Red Triangle Club, on Philips Square, closed its doors, V J after six and a half years of service to the men of all the forces. During those years, over four and a half million service personnel enjoyed the facilities of the club. Men and women from all over Canada, the United States, the British Commonwealth, and the world have registered there. It was a recreation club, with games and writing rooms, concerts and dances, and a very busy canteen. During its existence, the canteen served nearly two million meals, using, among other things, fifteen tons of sugar, and nine tons of butter. The Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association is proud of the fact that it played its part in the volunteer work which made this service club such a success. During the months of July and August in 1940, and from June, 1941 until March, 1946, the Trafalgar Old Girls ' Association ran the canteen at the club on Sundays, from nine a.m. until seven p.m. There were three shifts a day, of from four to seven workers. Over a hundred of the Old Girls willingly gave up their Sundays to this work, by far the majority of them being the recent graduates. About twenty of the girls had five years ' service. The Old Girls ' Association is proud of this part of its war service.
